Welcome all and congratulations to the Lsu Tigers who has triumphantly won and the College Football Playoff National Championship last night by a forty two twenty five score over the Clemson Tigers. This is a different show for us. We only have one one game to recap. We're going to do our best to go through all the minutia of the game. That transpired last night in New Orleans in the meantime though if you haven't yet subscribe Ktar show you can do so at soliver dot com or anywhere you get your podcasts. Every subscription helps us boost the show and grow footprint really really. We're GONNA be here all off season long so we want you along for the ride as we talk about the INS and outs of college football with interesting guests with funny themes who who knows what comes our way over the next few months but as we make this. Turn now into the so-called doldrums of college football it's always great to have our ballers with us. We would urge you to join if you haven't already yeah to that So we do. Have the one game to discuss. I think we can also discuss implications moving forward After are we now know the results and where these teams are heading and who perhaps might be in position to be in our recap show on an early Tuesday morning in early January next year. I'd like to frame this show and you can turn me down it's okay And figure out what is and what isn't as it relates to okay LSU and Clemson. So I suppose unless there's there's more housekeeping to do people understand. That was the national champion. They'd be Clemson. Forty two to twenty five in a game. That wasn't really in doubt late but to you. What was this game? What would you come away with being sure of right after after watching? LSU's offense put forty two and over six hundred yards and really when they got going dismantle very very good clemson defense. We know a week ago and we previewed this game In hindsight we were right to frame it out by asking. Will it matter right. Will it matter that Clemson's got a great pass. Rush in one of the best. Pass pass defenses in America. Will it matter that Joe Borough and had order on. They haven't been on a stage. This bigger that it's a home game or we listed off about fifteen items. Will they matter what we know now is that most of it didn't matter not over the course of sixty minutes. What truly mattered was that Joe? Borough was again unflappable Bowl in two playoff games accounting for fourteen total touchdowns just a crazy stat a crazy stat. Maybe the greatest individual season in the the history of college football We can read through the stats later. But first and foremost I came away from this game. Sure that Joe Borough and this biological season he's had was not a fluke not a fluke. He had a good year last year where he won moments and we talked about those moments but the offense around him hadn't quite been assembled certainly the offensive line in front of him was a big question. Mark going into the season now after seeing the full body the of work and in particular what he did in two huge playoff games. There is no doubt that this was no fluke by Joe Burrow. He should be the first pick by the Cincinnati Cincinnati bengals to go home to Ohio. And I think that has to be the main starting point here even though it may be cliche overdone at this point. Joe Borough was the man. well to be fair to the game itself he was. You said unflappable. But he was he was flapped early early he was I I like three drives. He was and then after that not so much right and Clemson looked strong and more composed on offense early. They they'd serve generate big plays and are able to string together first downs a a little bit more easily spread. The ball around Lawrence certainly looks more comfortable. Joe Borough talked about how Brent Venables and the CLEMSON defense or coming at him from mystery angles. You know they were playing their three down linemen sort of bunched together near the middle of the line and then they were. Sending is delayed guys in twists. And whatever and Joe Borough had a legitimately difficult cult time in the one play he did make was called back for an offensive lineman illegally downfield. Because how could you assume that Joe Borough was going to be tackled in the backfield after are spending that much time with the ball scrambling for his life but Clemson look like the better prepared team to win this game for the first quarter her and beyond as they were looking at the Lsu defense and figuring out ways to move the ball and then the second quarter right it was like the first twenty twenty minutes of this game. The first there'd was all coming up Clemson but after that point. LSU figured it out on offense and as you get to the back half of the game LSU shutdown Clemson's offense completely shut down for the last twenty five minutes of the game and the attention is rightfully going to go to an ores. Ron Joe Brady Dave Aranda not as much. I guess David random but you know the like you mentioned the offensive line coming together. These incredible receivers vers terrace. Marshall and Marchesi goes over two hundred Jefferson other great game Thad Moss key catches Clyde Edwards. Allaire kept getting it done the LSU defense offense after they go down seventeen seven I think LSU goes on a thirty five to eight run the second. Half where you get the Joe Bro touchdown he runs out of bounds and he throws throws the touchdown pass right before the half they get the ball at halftime and get shut down but it was the Lsu defense that was no anywhere. Trevor Lawrence in the clemson offense fence wanted to be it was hands and passing lanes. It was making him uncomfortable as making. It was showing no open lane for anything. Clemson that ultimately as much as the LSU offense scored the points and brought lightning to the national championship game it was really the Lsu defense that awesome it really stamped the ticket for Lsu as national champions to me you know we start this discussion. Rightfully talking about Joe. Borough the Heisman Trophy winner core incredible credible individual season again. I emphasize all the real story of this game to me was that Lsu defense because clearly opposite them am this Clemson. Offense had enough firepower to contend with just about anybody Dan the fact that they were able to shut them down in the manner that they did was was truly really impressive. So I start with borough I think I end and most impressed by the LSU defense and the effort they put in it l. analysis defense and we talk about the alleyoop quality of you know putting a defense on the field a lot if the offense is playing really well or really poorly they were scoring. Lsu was scoring quickly LSU issue was moving the ball downfield. I mean largely Joe Brough to his receivers namely Justin Jefferson into marches and Taras Marshall The LSU defense got off the fields. I mean you'd look at what Clemson was able or really not able to do. In the second. Half they score that touchdown early on on the first possession the second half but then it's punt four plays punt four plays punt three plays punt five plays for six yards and then Trevor Lawrence fumbles on their final possession. Or I guess they got twenty or thirty yards but right it was such a complete performance and you can look back at the sliding doors and all of the events that led to you know doors. Ron Getting the job been Joel Leva and holding onto less miles and You know Tom Herman being involved Jimbo Fisher being involved and The the foresight allegedly. Because this is what I want to get into next of Joe Borough coming to Lsu and seeing something and Joe Borough but Lsu got to this point because of desperation now they got their twenty nineteen season was we have to figure out something on offense. We have to figure out something where we don't count on the offensive line after what they showed in two thousand eighteen we've to figure here's something out at quarterback and maybe this three star Ohio state backup is the answer. We need something we need a spark for this offense. We need anything and what I want to get into with what it isn't and we can talk about Clemson we can talk about Lsu more because I mean six hundred plus yards forty two who points and getting their act together for that first quarter was nothing short of incredible but I think what sort of gets lost. Because we're inundated everybody's trying to come up with a different different angle. Everybody's trying to come up with a different feel good story Edwards Ron gets positioned as east the local guy who went through staff. And and you know we didn't hire him and he had a bad tenured ole miss and you come back home to Lsu and he's just as down-home guy at a restaurant is a full-on great great coach and I think that's everybody thinks he's almost like the I don't I couldn't recall his name. The the voiceover guy who is homeless on the side of the road. Oh no right now I want to say yeah we like and you know it's like this Joe Brady Kid finding like Joe Brady won an essay contest to become the Lsu Hugh Coordinator. These are full on great coaches. These are full on great players. Joe Just happened to be a backup probably at the wrong school all are for the wrong system. Whatever but this isn't like a scrappy feel-good thing? This is incredible coaching an incredible infrastructure. An incredible talent coming together and so to me what. LSU's twenty nineteen isn't is like a bad news. Bears thing what their game against against Clemson proved. Was this just college football. Excellence and its all-time excellence for all of the reasons. Why excellent teams have come together there in years past? It's just new in this decade for Lsu to do what they did and cousins a great team and what else was able to doing the second and third quarter and just trample them was nothing new for this team this year but nevertheless it's an incredible watch an incredible watch in tier point of ED or genet doors. Ron's run in college football circles for a long time of course was coach at Ole Miss. He saw during the broadcast. They showed all his stops around. The State of Louisiana had a brief front at USC and Orangutan's never been short on motivation. And there's never been any doubt about the fact that he's an elite recruiter. The Guy knows how to get you. amped up to play for him but what was lacking and specifically lacking jacking Lsu even before he got there was infrastructure on offense trying to figure out a new twist some way to liven it up and so when we all heard that at going into the year that this was the year they had figured it out they were trying to figure it out there. Were trying something new. I think it was met rightfully with some skepticism. Because we've heard that act before and it hadn't materialized and to your point Dan. There is a lot to be said for a coach going out making a key decision and and having it work look Dabo swinney on the other side of the field. We've had guests on this show time and again talk about how in dabbled took over at Clemson. His first choice was to go out and hire assistant coaches who he knew. Were going to be very good. Who could carry some of the wait for him? As a first time head coach. That was eight decision that in the long term has paid handsomely multiple hundreds of times over for that Clyde football program and the legacy that Dabo Sweeney he's GonNa leave behind I don't know what the eventual story is going to be for orange Iran but the fact that he made this decision. Now as you said maybe a bit out of desperation brations to try and retool this offense the way that it worked out the way that it was cobbled together and built around this personnel group in that he had was nothing short of a great great coaching decisions so all credit to him and what he put forth in two thousand nineteen because as many as I said and I'm sure we'll debate in the off season clearly one of the best offensive performances in the history of college football. Yeah and it's a lot of know which you are not you aren't and Lsu knew that they were not in a good place offensively. They tried this a few years ago with Matt. Canada to to modernize it didn't work for for personality reasons for onfield reasons consistency reasons. It didn't work so it's not just the idea of we. We need to change. We need to evolve. I'm putting I'm checking my ego at the door. You'll have to find the right guy. You also have to be incredibly lucky and everybody. That succeeds leads has some sort of luck. At some point. I will also add and people have pointed to the the clemson template the template of hiring great assistance and taking less money upfront. It also helps when you have a school behind you an athletic department behind you. That has a ton of money that they're willing to spend on modernizing modernizing on hiring and retaining coaches which. I don't know how much Dave Ramsey made this year but it's not two hundred thousand dollars now that seven hundred thousand dollars it's closer to two million dollars so this is it's an incredible story but I think because of the personality involves specifically we tend to look get things in a very binary way either like the ruthless killer. Nick Sabin type or the sort of I uh shucks whatever type and the fact of the matter is Lsu specifically. I got lucky with Joe Borough but they did the right thing yeah. Lsu Out lucky with job ready and Steven Singer working together. I mean I think Stevens Manure is what twice Joe. Brady's age so there's a certain amount of luck it's also really nice at LSU happens to be and maybe the most per capita talented high school recruiting state as Louisiana. I think has been written as I couldn't have been happier to watch. LSU This season because their specific road was so different from Clemson's since to get to this point in that I think it was what six ranked teams that they beat and significant rank teams Florida Auburn Texas. I think finished in the top twenty ninety five but Georgia Oklahoma teams. That do at least one thing incredibly well and so I- Clemson didn't necessarily have that they couldn't control that. And I I get kind of bored trying to put. LSU In like an all time conversation because context is so different term. I'd like to just appreciate Lsu for what they did this season in which was just remarkable But I came away from this game refreshed to watch a team. Really turn it around as quickly as they did knowing the clear advantages that they had. But I just I love watching Clyde Edwards Layer. I love watching Jomar Chase I. I loved that The defense really came into its own later on in the season of you watch them against Oklahoma and Georgia It was just. It's an incredible story the and it's something novel. It wasn't clemson winning again. It wasn't Alabama winning. It wasn't Ohio State even though Clemson goes through Ohio state though is something it was something we hadn't seen that level offensive dominance paired with an Lsu is very clearly a blue blood but within that context something that is just. It's at least a a little bit different and I loved it so as we talk about what else you did on offense and especially the performance. They turned in again last twenty five minutes the game really were they. Shut Down Clemson Let's let's look a little bit at some of the stats from this game. Not to onto heavy on the stats. But now you're good. Clemson held under under four hundred yards. which you know in most normal discussions about college football under four hundred yards is like nothing really to write home about but with this clumps and offense the weapons they have particularly Trevor Lawrence to hold them down to three ninety? Four and total yardage is is pretty impressive Trevor Lawrence on the day we talk a little bit about Joe. Borough being flapped early Trevor Lawrence saw a lot of pressure. He saw some interesting coverages. I heard some of his comments in the post game. Presser and yeah they. They had him guessing at a lot of spots in this game. Eighteen of thirty seven for for two thirty four no touchdowns he had that fumble late in the game when it was pretty much on ice at that point the big number here though is one of eleven on third. Downs Ellison really brought their a game on third downs holding down Clemson and doing their part to try and give the ball back to the offense and extend that lead eight. Oh one hundred percent third down is where they thrived last year against Alabama. We remember all those fifty fifty throws to Justin. Ross and T. Higgins against Alabama those out routes from you know a true freshman quarterback they really nailed the moments last year and there was just nothing there was no oxygen on third down for for Clemson at all after they went up. Seventeen to seven and that's LSU that's confusion and that is that his day verandah and that is the those corners just it seemed like if Clemson Simpson were. If clemson was going to move the ball it was going to be Trevor Lawrence fitting passes into impossible windows and we've talked about this with National Championships. We've talked about this with big games if that's what you need for four quarters. It's it's going to be almost impossible if you can't generate anything easy if you can't generate any you know crossing route if you can't generate okay. Trevor Lawrence hits t Higgins for nineteen. He hits you know Justin Ross us for eleven. And you're just the guys are sitting in zones. The guys are making really nice double moves. If you're not able to get that downfield like you normally are against everybody else else it. It feels like there's a three percent chance that you can beat a team as talented as Lsu and that that ultimately was I mean your rights mentioned the third downs. Sounds but I I mean I remember watching. You Know Oregon Wisconsin Wisconsin needed fourth-down after fourth down after fourth out and they did a really good job there. But when you need that it's hard hard to separate. It's hard to hang with another good team. GotTa stay ahead of the chains gotta stay had the chains especially when you've got an offense. LSU's on the other side of the field that that has so much just You know so much weaponry. It's tough to contend with that if you can't convert I keep coming back to those last twenty five minutes but the reason I do so clemson held to sixty five total yards in their last five drives of the football game and it's just tough to get back in a game. It's tough to do much of anything. When Your Ira I take from you? I know under literally one hundred yards of offense and five possessions. Hey Dan how does how does wearing your Indochino suit it.

Now that we've seen everything play out as thoroughly as we possibly can clearly LSU and it's yeah it's a question of lag a question of number two you know I still am partial to Clemson here. I think we got okay. The best two teams Maybe with a to a or to be being Ohio state because that game was so close but but in the end I think Clemson with what they do on defense and you never mind what happened in this football game with Joe Borough shredding them but what Clemson has done on defense moving from what. We saw a season ago when they won the National Championship. Having that incredible front four are moving to this crazy system where they move Isaiah Simmons all over the field they bring pressure from linebackers as opposed to their front four in in a manner. That's a little bit different from what we saw a year ago. Their ability to adapt and still played a very high level defensively to me as puts them puts them just a nod over Ohio L. State aside of the fact that they actually won the football game. They're probably my still my number two. Where would you put into an Alabama to Alabama hooman? That might be my number two. Actually that's the thing they gave you more offensively now. I know they weren't fully. You know it wasn't a one possession game consistently even though it finish. I think what they lost by five. They put forty one on Lsu and that was in Tuscaloosa so this is not a neutral site like clean got I I think with what Alabama has firepower wise and I know they took a step back on defense again. We talked about this on our instagram. Live before the show ten thousand dollars to bet on a team to beat. LSU On a neutral field after having watched now what Clemson was or was not able to do. Oh so this is a you know. We're basically HYPO HYPO hypothesizing there it's the word I Guess Alabama in Ohio State teams. Who have that talent? That didn't get a shot against Alessio. Oh I think I would take Alabama over Ohio state to take down. LSU Well Alabama was within five of Lsu when they played earlier in the year and he's he's a good football game to watch to a wasn't that football game if to his on the field is probably a much different conversation. It has to be but as it stands right now I think clemson instill my number two. Yeah to a plate in that game but beat up beat up beat up for sure How do you feel about these guys moving forward? Both these teams Obviously we LSU is losing its quarterback and Joe Borough. Trevor Lawrence will be around for another year and we've heard so much about Clemson's constant constant infusion of talent urine Erawan reverting frontier. They're always in the mix and Lsu was as well but I don't think there's any doubt that. LSU has to take a step back. Because Joe Borough Swimming's going to be in the NFL. But where do we stand on both of these teams now as we enter the twenty twenty season. CLEMSON's uh-huh in a better place because they've been able to whether you know the losses of incredible players to get back to this point LSU is onto chapter to whereas Clemson feels like they're on chapter four or five so at least there's there's faith there's confidence in the I was say tiger. But the Clemson Tiger program that the the higher if they lose Brent Venables I mean they just lost an offensive coordinator and Jeff Scott. But there's confidence that they'll be able to retool and figure out systems and Keep the keep the factory open. LSU Is interesting we. I can't imagine anybody believes Joe Brady as long for Baton Rouge even if he coaches. There's another year there next year. QUARTERBACK is a lot less certain System hiring assistance because as as well as Lsu's defense has played it now seems like this. Is Dave Aranda with his maximum value. Maybe gets hired by an NFL team. Maybe he sticks around. I don't think he's going to get a better situation in college than what he has at. LSU But ed origin past chapter one with flying colors LSU is going to be in a great position talent wise right now though with for what Clemson has coming in and they have returned basically everybody employing there. So Yannopoulos t higgins and Travis T. N.. But the receivers they have their. That's probably the best coach receiver team in the country Clemson should I believe they are the odds on favourite. Yeah right now so I'm looking at the odds. Clemson is a two to one favorite followed by Ohio state at three and a half to one Alabama at seven one Georgia at seven and a half to one. LSU LSU is at fourteen to one. Now I don't I mean what else who does at quarterback whether it's miles Brennan whether it's another one younger guys whether they go to the transfer portal Israel. I saw Derek King put his name in officially after taking that weird redshirt situation after a couple of games and I imagine he will be a hot commodity. I I I don't think Oklahoma turns to another transfer but who knows So LSU seems like a pretty ideal situation with what he'll have around him especially Joe Brady returns Yeah the chapter two is a mystery to me for Lsu. I I really hope we get as as many entertaining. Football Games from the Tigers but CLEMSON's at a better place right now. I would agree with that and you know for sure. LSU caught lightning in a bottle. What makes them different is that they knew exactly what to do with it or they figured out what to do with with it on the fly and Joe Borough I think they knew they had something last year? They just needed to beef up that offense and that was clearly a concerted effort in the off season. And that's that's exactly exactly what it or drawn was trying to do. Are you ready for and it won't be a fantasy thing so I'm I'm happy to talk about it now. There's going there are going to be stories. Stories that will use the phrasing. COULD BE JOE. Borough type could be job or a young offensive coordinator. You're coming in and my. They think he'll have a Joe. Brady like effect on the Blah Blah offense. We're GONNA need the Joe Brady fantasy things item for sure. The Joe Brady Eighty fantasy thing. Yeah I mean an incredible job by both Brady and Springer and borough I mean there's nothing short of just terrific but Ooh Ooh what. LSU Did is not going to be respected as it should be as something that only LSU could accomplish and we are going to see. Oh there's a template there's a template of opening things up of finding a new coordinator who's going to have this type of effect and I can't wait for it. I cannot absolutely wait for it. So your final score here was forty two to twenty five. LSU becomes now the second fifteen zero team in the history of college football behind Clemson last year clemson finishes fourteen and won a marvelous season for them as well. How did you watch this game? ESPN hat it's mega. Casco us going again where we had multiple different feeds that we could watch. I did my best to graze and sample each of them so I watched the main main feed. I flipped a little bit different points in the game early on to just get a sense. I thought the I don't know what it was. Called the sideline with our PAL ADEMA meal tests Levy the field pass. Thank you I think it was what Pat McAfee and Danilov Ski Yummy all seem to be pretty good. But they're reacting thing without a vantage point without contact. So that's tough. I watched the coaches film room. Some actually came away pretty impressed with Jeff Half Louis Boston College for more. The one reason place. Yeah so that feed remains the one that I'm most interested in but I can't stand watch. Yeah it's not a good live watch. It's an after the fact which I think is where really. Yeah and like in the past. They've tried to plug in a host play. Traffic Cop ran this year. I'm guessing and they ditch that idea and sort of decided to let Mike Gundy and Jeff Half Li do it. Yeah They Sean Parker lose the yeah. I think they actually did a decent enough job job doing it. The problem is that Gary Patterson does all the talking is the Alpha he is the Alpha and to his credit. He's been a coach for for a long time. He's very bright and sharp and he's good at what he does is a reason he's been at. TCU forever but from a watch ability standpoint sitting at home the only two solutions solutions are to either a put Gary Patterson as the only one in the film room or be get rid of them altogether and invite someone else. Oh the Gary Patterson room the the frog room. I imagine. There's an element of because he's done it so many times and because he has always sort of looked like the strong personality and the coaches his room that a producer pulled him aside. Listen there's dead air we need you count on you. If there's a lull. We need we need did you. GP I I like that. The coaches film room was just an exercise in four different dude. Saying can you ruin that. Okay rewind that place Can you on on that can go back. We go back go back. Go back and they didn't want to come across like this is a run. This is a pass is is a draw they they were genuinely impressed with both teams. I thought and in this sort of architecture of their game plans which I like to see coaches come away with things like Oh oh. That's an interesting wrinkle. Oh Wow okay. They didn't show that and to actually that phrasing they didn't show that I saw Stevens winger I was. I don't know who he told but it was like the sixth or seventh straight game where. LSU's offense saw a defense that they hadn't seen on film like what Clemson through at Lsu was not anything that they were prepared for and still they adjusted they stayed calm and It was it was very cool. I did enjoy elements so that coaching film room room. That is fun. said it remains the feed that I'm most interested in but it can be can be a tough watch. I'm with you on the field pass. It's it's a ton of fun not just because they're good for an atom is involved but I do enjoy watching them move frantically about the sidelights Like just the machinations of how to me is is very interesting hit by errant punts. Exactly did you rose did you dabble at all with the REF cast. Now I did not either. I do the rap cast. I didn't do the net. Sounds of just like a wide camera the ASC more in the Dome didn't do that. Did Not do the local radio guys which I'm sure it was cool if you're specifically and Lsu or a Clemson Fan Shirley. Yeah those were the those are the feeds that I didn't do the stat camera. All twenty two. Whatever I mean I guess the coaches filmer was was all twenty two ish? There was the the wide angle but it was it was a good broadcast. I thought Fowler and Herbstreet. We're good I came away I it was long really long or four and a half. Felt like some of those quarters needed halftime. Yeah it's lasted in last and lasted. But you know this is final game of the season if you're complaining about along football game maybe you're not super into football. Maybe you're not so all right here. We are. Yeah everyone everyone. Starting today is officially undefeated. Congratulations as we answer. Thank you Twenty Twenty College Football Season Dan as we said at the top.

But that's another day another time I would encourage people if they are not subscribed to subscribe right now to join the subway. I also have in front of me. Our friends do MANDL's way too early. Top Twenty five twenty twenty. I'm putting putting this on you. He has clemson one which I think is Ohio state to Alabama three. I think Mack Jones and I guess he'll be battling a a five star. True True Freshman quarterback Bryce Young He it'll be a new receiver core. Because I think Jerry Judy and Henry rugs both declared but Devante Smith and Smith and Jalen waddell still there. Georgia four Jamie Newman. But they returned some some studs on defense. I don't know how you feel about Jamie Newman. I think we're going to probably do a transfer and new look specific show with coaches and transfers popping up all over the country LSU Five to low to high with quarterback uncertainty. Let's say you might be pretty high. Okay yeah that might be. It might be Pretty High Dan. I guess quarterback and coordinator Uncertainty Penn state at six. You gotTa Love Kirk Cheraga. Yeah if you like Penn state at number six. I think I think you're really really subscribing. Kirch Iraq you've got penn state at number six I guess title Mandel is still Mandela's but does so much coming back in that defense that again as as the bedrock and the starting point for what Penn State's GonNa do next year. That's that's as goose spot as any Do Lose Caja Handler which it will be interesting to see how they replace that kind of production Receiver was not a strong suit for Penn State. This year outside of him a couple of buses well higher higher rated recruits at receiver. Didn't really work out for Penn State as well Florida at seven Kyle. Trask ask is clear best. I think you see quarterback I think Florida is I way too early like to the extent that they can be a sleeper. Yeah yeah they're. They're my way too early sleeper team. Their corners for twenty twenty. Yeah Oregon at eight They don't have an offensive coordinator at the time. We're recording this S.. I know the team really likes tyler. Shock who was Just in Herbert's backup quarterback and they're juniors on defense are all returning that perhaps we're flirting with the NFL. Their defense should be absurd. This will be a top five defense in the country probably especially with what they'll be offense which will now include the Nick Role of Vich Washington State cougars. That was sort of announced during the game. So there's that Oklahoma nine that's Whoa. They won't finish. Let's put it that way. They'll finish higher. The big twelve will be better in twenty twenty. It should be here of the new coaching under the belts of what Neil Brown and Chris Climb and Matt Wells like. There's a lot more to count on with the big twelve so I think it'd be tougher for. It's probably going to be Spencer Rattler who I know. They like a lot and he was the number one quarterback last year coming out of high school. I think you're right. Notre Dame ten Notre Dame ten is I think think about right. I am curious though again I go back to preseason odds and I mentioned the top five but Notre Dame is number six at had twenty two one there in front of Florida. Yeah they're in front of Texas there in front of USC Oklahoma. There in front of Michigan. Penn state I think tens about right to to be honest with you. There are some losses that they're going to have to contend with as well especially on the defensive side of the football but Should have a good team coming back. The schedule does get harder. Under though if Notre Dame makes twenty twenty slash twenty twenty one college football playoff. Let's agree now. Pool our life savings to gamble against Notre Dame the deal. Okay good Wisconsin at eleven I might wage are get Wisconsin. Defense should be pretty good but there without Zach bond and Chris or I I don't now no no. J. T. T. I think that's A. That's a an off year for the the badgers to me but have not really fully gun in deep with the the bag at Auburn at twelve adding Chad Morris. I think is interesting I'm not fully sold on Bo. Knicks Iowa Thirteen. USC Fourteen no defensive coordinator at the time of this recording Oklahoma state. Fifteen fifteen anything for Youtube harbor coming back to Hubbard coming back. I like that and they promote Casey done the receivers coach from within taking over at offense coordinator After losing SEAN GLEESON TO RUTGERS MINNESOTA AT sixteen I like the Higher Mike Sanford. I think they're going to be good team team. Still GonNa build on good still going to be pretty good or Morgan back. Yeah all right. I'll rounded out Texas Cincinnati Tennessee Michigan at twenty. I guess it's still McCaffrey. Joe Milton who knows at quarterback Memphis new head coach. We'll see am I think is I don't know if I feel good about a top up. Twelve callum on lead offense but happy to be surprised North Carolina. Asu with an intriguing quarterback in the new offense coordinator Calot twenty-five pilots. Plant the flag. Top fifteen calorie ready. I'm ready baby. I'm red okay. They lose Evan Waiver which is damaged. Because he's tackled everybody twenty five fifteen so Daniel here's the deal We have our three winners in the College Football Bowl. Oh staff that will Keith Richards. eighty-six held on okay held onto win also letdown. Look ahead sandwich an entry that I had ad spot shadowed when we did our analysis a couple of weeks ago eventually did jump up and look at this. I love my Oregon. Ducks one Yeah coming in third place Keith. Richards actually tied for twenty fifth overall like across however many hundreds of thousands of millions of Venturi is on the ESPN DOT com website.

LSU @ Alabama: How the New Tigers Offense Is Upping the Rivalry's Stakes

"Hi It's host of the ESPN daily podcast. Wake up to the best story. You'll hear all day twenty minutes a day five days a week where you get an inside look look at the most interesting stories at ESPN. As told by the top reporters that insiders on the planet the breaking news is sportscenter with deep dive storytelling of thirty for thirty. Today's episode episode one. I thought like please listen and subscribe to Espn daily wherever you get your favorite podcasts. How would you coach put into words? What is is at stake this Saturday on the line you'll be physical war we've prepared for and that was the one and only Lsu head coach Ed odor on his number two ranked tigers take on number three ranked Alabama tomorrow? What is shaping up as the game of the year in college football? Alabama's eighth straight in this rivalry. But this isn't the same old. LSU offense was the heisman hopeful a QB. Could this finally be the Tigers here. I mean it's Friday November eighth this is espn daily presented by indeed. So I have watched Joe Borough and boy good is good good. He looks like a bad guy. CW show for teen like yeah. Yeah like a bad guy. From like supergirl or from Riverdale Ryan McGee is a senior writer for ESPN WHO's surprisingly knowledgeable about about teen dramas this fifteen year old daughter. This is my world so no trust. I have impressed Ryan. You've been covering college football for a very eight long time. How big of a deal is this? Game is the biggest. And it's not just about the numbers next to the names. I mean this is twenty years in now now of this game determining who wins the SEC. West Dad's depowered division in college football and it begins and ends with Alabama Lsu and the numbers are what they are in the national champion trophies are what they are and that's why this game will always be a big deal and by the way it didn't hurt that you know there's twos and threes. He's next to their names. Why is this matchup in particular this year? Compared to recent years so exciting to watch bill shoe is suddenly multidimensional steps up man. We'll take it down feel has just I was at the Auburn. LSU Game Two weekends goes Lsu's last game and we walked the tailgates. They're around Death Valley. The questions warrant. Hey Do you think we we have a chance against Alabama was do you think. We'll be favored at Alabama and. There's a confidence that comes with fan base with the team with everyone involved because now they they know they can score points. The defense has been so good for so long and they've had offense of talent. They just not really done anything with that. And now they're running a twenty-first-century offense as a result. Everybody believes they can win the game as opposed to Kim. We just hang with Alabama. You mentioned that the defense has been good for a really long long time. Some of that stems from back when Nick Sabin who's Alabama's coach now coached. LSU How did he change the program when he came came in years ago I mean calms hate the phrase changing the culture so much when it comes to college football but that's what he did and it's interesting when again when I was down there for the Auburn game so much of the support staff the equipment guys the training instead. They're all there when when saving was there and they all talk about how things changed. It was kind of a poor but proud football program. They had their moments but they didn't really have their seasons. They certainly didn't have their eras and Nick Sabin created a completely different mindset which is why can't we compete with the Alabama's and the Auburn's and why can't we play with these guys and so he changed everything and great. What if for everyone down there? Here's what would live been like. Had he not left for the dolphins and ended up in Tuscaloosa even successful as they are. Now it's like man what what would have been like. If Nick it stayed well. He was replaced in two thousand five. By less miles. I think a great Debt of gratitude goes to nick. Sabin is a guy with tremendous vision. How did the team change after that? It really didn't it was more of a A have this this machine. Why in the world mess with it? They won the National Championship. Or congratulations the Lsu Tigers two thousand AL's BCS national champions. The problem that occurred was that as the years went on less. Smile's stuck to that original machine. No matter how antiquated it became less miles with literally. Walk into the meetings of his offense of coaches and they say coach this. This is what we got and we're adding these thirty pages. Playbook awesome and he would say no you know we have to announce our presence with authority. We have to play you know in the box. and Oh you know. When the line of scrimmage and all this stuff and they're like okay that one a lot of games that approach and it continued to win ten games a year but that was kind of it? Maybe maybe the last time a match between these two teams was this hyped was back in two thousand eleven right. When Elsie was number one Bama was two people? We're calling it. The game of the century you had stars on both sides. This was back when Alabama had eight hundred carrying and Trent Richardson. LSU Had Odell Beckham junior injustice. Landry we'll score that game ninety six placed in the Air I get saying procured out ally do win. That game is so legendary there are people all around the country. WHO said that game was like? Why are we playing Ryan in nineteen forty one game? These are two good defensive teams. Let's say that okay. Just thought cow boy. There was so much talent in that game so much offense to town in that game. Good that was. It was the heavyweight fight and it still old school. Football fans point to Buddha's disputable night football. And that was the night that Alabama and from that point forward they kinda changed what they did later that season the two teams Smet again in the National Championship College football giants number one versus number two Lsu Alabama this time Alabama Juan Twenty one zero Lsu couldn't even get the ball past the fifty yard line in the first half the frustration there if you're in Lsu Steve Van was you were bar beating. This team wants in this type of football game and now they've done a little something extra offensively to pull away. You can't move. The football from SAP hasn't roads to the left to the boundary. It's where no three for the second dry for Lsu Lsu that offense. I was so awful that night the lack of creativity not even trying to go down. Feel Jefferson's back to pass on second shift. Pete Rose Again Beckham to the forty three. Wow throw a party on perfect street. A double digit gate. LSU and their second I out of the game and that was kind of the night of the departure when Alabama went off and did their thing and Lsu. Unless you just couldn't keep up Alabama gets a second chance and makes the most of it they win the BCS championship. How did both teams offenses evolve after that ear? Well Obama evolved L.. LSU Did not and Alabama. He didn't want to evolve the man who installed that mindset in Baton Rouge had also installed Alabama to an even greater degree of success and could feel him starting to open the gap a little bit between himself and the rest of college football when that gap started to close a little. They start losing ole miss with you freezes offense they start losing losing to Texas. AM with Johnny Manziel. Those were the teams that they had a difficult beating. Clemson with the Shawn Watson. That's when reluctantly nick. Sabin even changed his entire offense. Well we have some breaking sports news for you on this Friday evening. Alabama coach. Nick Sabin has hired a new offensive coordinator. He went and hired Lane Kiffin when he was available. Available Lane. KIFFIN counter. Brought all these other guys in with this more imaginative offense and they started recruiting players. Like Jalen hurts like to talk about lower. And guess guess what they widened the gap again and they certainly widened it with Lsu. who was refusing to do any of this? Why Les Miles was stuck in his ways? Why didn't he you know? Look across Taliban see what was happening there and decide to evolve. His offense to everyone loves less mile so much and he's the eating the grass guy and he's the still wants to draw defensive schemes. Open the dirt guy all that stuff but that same mentality that makes them so entertaining and so old school in the mad hatter and all that stuff that also translated into old school offense real man. Football is tractor. Pull football and that's what he wanted to do. And unfortunately that's not what everyone else was doing After the break how LSU finally changed its ways on offense and is it enough to get them past Nick Saban's defense it's at Espn daily.

Triple Zeros on the mad hatters career as the school fired. The coach Sunday afternoon so in two thousand sixteen less miles gets fired. Tired editor on takes over. How does he go about changing the LSU? Offense is interesting. Because I have known coach. Oh for a long time and what he says he learnt was what less miles never learned. He just started kind of change and everything and was like let's take the Alpha talent we have and see what we can do with where we're going to look at recruiting the best office coordinator and football he hired Stevens sounds meagre and just said listen. You're someone with a background in multidimensional offenses and. I'm going to get any made the promise. I'm going to gather your way which which is something that Less miles per all his greatness is never figured out and even at the end of in-swingers first year as offense coordinator in two thousand eighteen. He went to coach. Oh and said you know what we could open this thing up if you really want to. And so what did he do. He drove down the road in New Orleans and he hired. Joe Brady away from the New Orleans Saints. You know if you want to kill a couple of hours you ask you breeze about Joe Brady and Tom Brady walked in and he had an entirely new chapter. That playbook an from minute one. He and Joe Borough who just transferred in from Ohio State. We're on the same page age and the video game. Numbers commenced take up a borough right back at the end. Jefferson there with gets works Ryan. You mentioned how Lsu had offensive players like Odell Beckham Junior Jarvis Landry you you know who now in the. Nfl What do you think they think this. LSU offense now are not thing. We asked O B J about at this week and I talked till several former LSU players who are in the league. I talked to several former LSU players from back in the day and they all are so so excited and they're rooting for this team so hard but they're all super jealous Super Super Jealous. These guys are all my friends who are still in. The team are texting and saying Bang Man. You'd have so many touchdowns right now and it'll be like yeah that's great but then it helped me out now in. His numbers were still good. But he didn't catch hit a handful follow touchdown catches lot of yards. He gets into the red zone where they weren't gonNA throw it to the end zone. Tommy Hodson really the only like pure passing quarterback that Lsu's ever had and he played at Lsu in the late eighties and his career passing record in every broken. He was a starter for years. But Joe Boroughs going to get like two thirds away there and just is two years in Hudson was like get Cajun accent. He's like McGee. I like to play one quarter. What's at playbook just one drive? What's at playbook because this this guy's always wondering what could we have done because that was always the question what could Lsu do it? They just let them do it. Do you think they would have made these changes. If Sabin Tabin hadn't changed Alabama's offense not a chance because at the end of the day it's the only measuring stick to care about you know if you go back and look at what else you hasn't has not accomplished over the last ten years it's all about what Alabama has or has not accomplished. There's a lot of years in there with a one eleven twelve games and they got that one loss the one crucial conference loss. And it's always Alabama so. Yeah if Nick Sabin doesn't do what he did then I don't think they change. I don't think there's a lot of schools that don't change because they could always point point to the guy the goat and say well. He hasn't changed once he changed it kind of gave everyone else the excuse to to open it up. And that's just what college football is now you mentioned that. LSU Fans are still always asking. What if? What if Nick Sabin had stayed? Do you feel like coach. Chose success has that feeling of it a little bit and it's because they now have a different identity when they were still basically the same team that Sabin had established had coached put into place. And there's still that same team. The names of changed and nothing had really volved often. It's very easy to say. What would it have been like if the guy that started all this still there but now that you are playing a completely different brand of football offensively and you have a different identity and heaven knows from Louisiana? You can certainly relate more tuxedos Ron who was literally born almost on the edge of the of the by you you. That's your guy that's your identity and if you got coach when you've got that offense you don't need an exciting. That's how they're starting to feel now and the next step in this twelve. Step a plan of cutting yourself off to nick. Sabin paintings is You know beat him once you do that. You're officially over. What are the chances we get a EH grinded out low scoring slugfests this weekend? I think the chances are better that we will see more points. But there's certainly no lack of chance that will end up with a slug fest and I think the reality is is much is everybody l.. LSU loves US new offense and fifty points a game as much everyone in Alabama loves to and fifty points a game. If this game was Nana six I think a lot of people in both fan bases would be like this. This feels right as much as they love what they have now. They're still a part of them. That would love to see it and I think they're a little piece of of saving. That would love to get into more of those so that he would know that his team could win one of those in addition to win one. You know forty eight. Forty one is to play. Yes he is. Don't believe anyone to tell so. You're not talking to all the guys that cover the team full-time and they're all like she's fine. The official line is Gametime decision but I can tell you exactly the game. Time decision will be which was Number Thirteen we'll be out there and he might not be one hundred percent but at eighty percent he still better than most everyone else at. One hundred We've pretty much guaranteed. It's going to be ninety six. Yeah and if that happens happens I will thoroughly enjoy walking through the parking lot back to my car and all the old guys look it up going at trail football McGee and football. That's right.

Where their stories you'd like us to cover what you ate for breakfast today seriously? Anything and now. Here's a story. I want you to know two thousand fifteen. The New York Times magazine published a story about a middle distance distance runner named Mary Kane which was seventeen years old. Mary became the youngest American woman to ever compete in the world championships finishing second in the fifteen hundred meter race. She's working with Nike. As part of the company's Organ Project an initiative run by famous coach named L. Bartos Salazar and she was widely seen as one of if not the most most talented high school runners generation. Then Mary Kane Stop competing. The reasons were unknown until now yesterday yesterday. Mary published a video essay in the Times titled. I was the fastest girl in America until I join Nike. I join Nike because I wanted to be the best female athlete ever. I was emotionally and physically abused by a system designed signed by Alberto and endorsed by Nike in the video. She says that under Salazar's tutelage she experienced extraordinary pressure and humiliation. She's weighed in public and told to take drugs. That weren't allowed in the sport when she cried out for help. She was ignored recently. Salazar who denies these allegations nations was banned from the sport by the US Anti Doping Association. A ruling he plans to appeal Nike is shuttering the Oregon Project and the company. Co Co just stepped down but Kane points out inner peace none of this addresses the underlying problem. which is that like so many young women in sports sports she was being trained in a system designed by men for men under the age of company that look the other way to subsidize a culture that prioritized winning above everything all of which needs to change with the help? I hope of people like Mary Kane. I mean at times and this has been vinnie. ESPN daily our show is produced by Michael Vantera. Toy Farkas

LSU: The Greatest Offense of All Time

"Welcome to the audible presented by trader. Joe's I'm Stewart Mandel joined by Bruce Feldman in the morning after. LSU's national championship. Victory over Clemson We are still here in New Orleans. Bruce what what do you think will be your lasting image of the game you know. I don't I don't know I mean because it was a lot of thoughts going through my head just seon beyon- early on like when suicide next to me in the press box it felt like for the first couple of drives were not breath not much is going on but then Clemson at LSU backed up their territory. Lot Zero blitzing. They they definitely I think Brent Venables had the LSU offense the ants on its heels and then clemson started to go a little bit in Clemson's did some big plays and I don't know what point was seventeen seven or or something along the lines of that. I I think our colleague Ari Wasserman put out something that was like who covers Ohio state as if it's unclear We all know it's unclear whether this is just a blatant troll job or not. He's after watch. It was early in the game when he said watching these teens. I'm really to do tweets. It was another another one that was a reference to while. Lsu like they were fortunate that they got Oklahoma. 'cause they wouldn't have gotten through like your comes to blow out from Clemson. We saw this movie the last year against Alabama at remember thinking. This offense is GonNa get going where I didn't really expect. Stu was Trevor Lawrence his talented in his as gifted as he is looked more like a freshman last night for you on Monday night then he did last year against Alabama when he actually was a true freshman and Dan so to see that You know it was just like Whoa here at combs it was like an avalanche and it felt like this where I was going with that it felt like when we were sitting there watching it was like all right. Clemson feels like that dominated the first the first half but at one point it was like that controlled the first half and all of a sudden. Now they're down by one another so now they're like a deep hole and Lsu's getting the ball back. It was just think just felt like this thing was destined to happen. Yeah as I in the Lsu locker room and then went back and wrote Sept- sat down to write. It felt like just it was yet another game where Joe Jonesboro dominated and and was yet another. LSU blow out. And then as I kind of look back in my notes you realize Gosh I can hardly remember it now but this was the game was twenty eight to twenty five early in the third quarter after constant score a touchdown then clemson held LSU and it gets the ball back where the chance to take the lead. And I say that because by the time the game was over you would never remember it. was that close Because we saw yet another Sterling performance format from borough Jomar. Chase was unstoppable You know I wrote primarily about borough in my column from the game because I think what we just witnessed was without question region. The greatest season a college quarterback has ever had and to the point. Where you know you and I had podcast in the past where we talked about we debated Cam Cam? Newton's amazing season Vince young amazing season where they ranked in the in the Where they ranked his players right among all time? Great College players. Joe Borough rush like Cam. Newton is gonNA remember for just one season but Each through sixty touchdowns sixty and so oh just to put that in perspective that great Excuse me that great Vince. Young season he had thirty eight D.. Accounted for thirty eight rushing and passing touchdowns Ashdown's Tommie Frazier Ninety Five Nebraska. No that was a different era. He accounted for about two thousand yards of total offense. Borough when you put in his rushing six thousand yards of offense offense and they did it against a schedule that was so tough that when the final. AP poll came out Late Monday night. LSU had beaten five of the top eighteen which were pretty sure has never been done before it was And and and all and by the end you know. We're talking about things things here. That was see that if you had told me what an August that this would happen. I would say that's impossible. And yet he made it look so easy in these games that it certainly didn't impossible while you're watching it. It just seemed like Oh okay yet. Another game where the other defense. DB's can't stop these receivers and boroughs making all the right. Throws Rose is interesting. I spent a lot of the three days down here in New Orleans in the inside with Lsu and a lot of meetings in which just comes back to his hey we got number benign. It was like in there is talking about like any. NFL personnel person. Or anything like that but then there is Joe. Bureau was so much better than any other quarterback in the country because of how he operated this system are poised is how accurate. How great he is off script when the defense does something I don't know why feel compelled to touch on this but you know obviously you have this back and forth over the last. Probably Five Years About Cam Newton where he was the one thing I would. I'd say Cam Newton had nobody around him. You know the the only thing close to him as an NFL prospects even remotely was fairly on the other side of the ball. Joe Borough Roll. Had Mortiz went wild last night he actually had three drop passes well. Aj Terrell is considered to be a really good cornerback and and the poor guy gave up to fifty plus yard catches to chase in the first half. They eventually had to switch to a new to trying trying different DB On him. Well Oh I think what you were saying. I totally grew the greatest Offensive seem season. We've seen from a from a college quarterback but I would ask you this and haven't done enough research on it. You know their body work as a team matches up with anybody right and they. We beaten some some really good teams by double digits now to me and I I would argue that the Miami Ed Reed that team as the most talented team. The what I do think is like this team hasn't loaded with the level of. I think ridiculously future hall of fame kind of pro bowl guys. I mean we'll see I mean. Obviously the gap between Kendra. She was a really good quarterback and Joe Arrow is significant. But I would ask ask you. Is this the greatest offense you've ever seen in college yes. This was the greatest offense in college football. I was thinking trying to think of comparisons and to to to what you said. We've seen a lot of great offenses that like for instance. The chip Kelly Oregon offenses that took college football by storm in time. Seemed unstoppable. Darren Thomas was the quarterback right. It wasn't a guy who's going to be the number one pick in the draft maybe think about some of these Oklahoma offenses recently. Certainly certainly the ones with Baker Mayfield Cuyler Murray season those offenses were prolific. But in both cases they eventually ran into a team that was more talented than them and was able to at least neutralize it. Lsu I think an an order on his set it and I think it's true what we saw. This season was just the perfect storm and the perfect combination of the quarterback. The offense that job Brady brought in the play calling reis even Zinger and just this insane set of receivers and also Clyde. You know who you're right about. Oh my gosh. That guy is unbelievable. A tackle them last night. Just every everything that needed to lineup lined up. I think it was the thing that you know not to go too. Big on Clyde there because the numbers aren't like Numbers but I think the element of having thing like it is the pick your poison where somebody's going to go all right. We gotTA worry about twenty two more and then also the one who won the won the Belichick off award you know. He was considered the greatest receiver. ALGEBRA's true sophomore. I think it was like and then that gets to touchdown. That was the kind of flurry that I think that they're just capable capable of and I I don't want him to bring up Ohio state. I was like it did not feel to me as impressive. This clemson was last year. is the president. We thought they were Dabo. Sweeney talking about the lack of respect. If all season to me there was no doubt who is the better team after watching that it last night. Yeah we talked all season long about how there are three teams that separated themselves. But I think at the end of the day you had one just unbelievable his all time historic team and then two teams that in most seasons would be the best team in the country. There have been plenty of seasons where there was not a team as good as any of those three teams. You had three of them this this year. And even even after that you could say there was a pretty big drop off to Oklahoma Georgia etc but obviously the Alabama team that that Lsu beat You know it. It kind of fell apart for them at the end of the season. But that's extremely talented team. They beat as well. So I'm pretty confident in saying that nobody has put together this impressive season in terms of who they beat I. I'm very confident saying it's the greatest offense we've ever seen people were throwing. Our KS is the best his team of all time. And I think you hit hinted at it. That's something that ultimately it. Oh it should only be based on college shouldn't NFL shouldn't come into it. Well when you think of greatest team of all time like the reason we hold up two thousand one. Miami is not because if you look at their schedule you wouldn't say like all these guys survived may beat a murderer's row or the. It's it's it's we just talk about it that way because so many of those guys ended up being all pros. They were just. There's no doubt about it. That was one of the most looted teams you've ever seen and I think we won't fully know that about. Lsu You for a few years. But I can certainly say they have the greatest season constable history. It's also hard to compare like I looked up Miami. Two thousand one. The only played twelve games. They played eleven game regular season and the national title game. Now we're in a sport where you play fifteen games and so that's why. Lsu has that's how you're able to rack up To beaten the big twelve champion in the ACC champion of so many intersectional opponents Texas And so I mean that's obviously harder. LSU Did was harder to pull off but who knows if two thousand and one Miami had been in a playoff in a conference championship game how they would have done. I think it's going to be very interesting. You know I mean I already did my early top twenty five. It's the usual suspects up there. clemson being number one line this is a this. LSU teams can be really interesting to see where they go from here because obviously you know. They've always recruited very well. They're one of those. They're they're one of my. You know twelve or thirteen programs have the pieces in place to do it but because of everything I said before about all the pieces lining up this year. It's GonNa be really fascinating to see what happens without Joe Borough. I we assume a lot of those as many. I think I said as many as nine guys could turn pro chase will be back. He's a sophomore. The really interesting piece here. Era As we move on is what happens a little bit with the staff. Joe Brady. I mean there's definitely something substantive to the the speculation that he will leave to be an. NFL offense coordinator. I think that interest is real on both parts at the end of the day. Look this May this. This may go the other way but I think he's from people. I know who were pretty close to him. Think he wants to be in the NFL and wants to be an NFL NFL. Head coach at some point and I think that's probably more appealing to him. He's GonNa have opportunity These never going to be hotter than he is right now. Stock there look as you said Ted Stevens. Marie had a huge role in this a lot. Other guys on the offensive staff had a huge role in. It's not just the Saints Offices Saints Passing Game and there's a lot of other stuff added so so we'll see what happens you know. Mileage is probably is going to the NFL as an offense coordinator. I don't think it has anything to do with money. But he's GonNa get paid well but he was going to get paid well if you stayed at Lsu but will you know we'll see how this is gonNA play out but the other thing that was interesting in the middle of the game. The Eric King Houston quarterback announces. He is in the portal and he's talented is not Who has short quarterback with a pretty good arm? And can ron on. And who knows if there's going to be Grad transfer goodell. I'm interested to see where this is headed for them. Because in your you know something you put out on the athletic I guess first thing Tuesday morning was you're too early. Top twenty five where a lot of underclassmen still declare you have Lsu Lsu five. And I would argue with that. I mean right now when you lose when you lose Joe Borough much less some of these other really players. There's GONNA be Allot to replace. And we'll see what the team looks like going forward back to the pod and just a minute WanNa tell you about Robin Hood with Robin Hood.

Financial is not a bank. Now back to the PODCAST. I think that that was basically a placeholder. I Yeah I think. LSU stock could could change wildly based on leaves. And certainly Joe Brady. I mean Joe Brady leaves after one year There's GonNa be people people who think okay. That was fun while lasted but now. LSU's going to go back in the wrong direction. I think it's really you know like look at the as you said perfect storm. It's Joe Borough. That's the hardest thing to place. I mean. Keep in mind like this offense. They kind of all cooked up was a lot of pieces in a lot of people involved in some people boom some some guys that most people don't know their names even on on the staff so I think it's more How do you place the greatest player in your school? History operated rated a ridiculously high level. They're still GONNA be a lot of talent. They got the nation's top tight end recruiters already there. Eric Gilbert to go with as you said chase In terrace terrace marshland bunch of other guys. So you know. This was a magical year for them. I wouldn't expect them to to to be able to just. It's not hit a few bumps at this point going forward but we'll see you spent so much time inside this program recently. In fact I have to say was Kinda the funny to watch the game next to you because you were caught. He was calling out play. Like when they lined up. I think at the three yard line I don't know I I go wherever and go. It was a and the soon as they had the formation ago. This is going to be a borough run and sure enough for a run for the touchdown like I felt like I was sitting next to Tony. Romo Yeah I wouldn't give myself that much credit. I had some of the answers to the test. There was one play kept on waiting for them to run. They never did. It was a trick plan. They don't run a lot of trick. Plays so so did that never happen but is fascinating to see all the pieces kind of moving in coming together. The biggest thing and I I have isn't isn't that story like we'll have a story I got coming up hopefully first thing tomorrow or hopefully by the time podcast goes up but it's how much confidence they have. It is unlike anything I've seen not I can't tell you I mean I was covering college. I don't remember I wasn't that close to the Miami team of what was almost twenty years ago but this team the way they are on the field. I I can't remember anything like it. You Know Eh. I'd be curious as to wet liner Reggie Bush's team kind of had gone when it was I think so much of it is because when you sit there are offices just better than everybody. Nobody else what that does. And that's the maybe the I don't even know I remember if you said them but you had your. You're just a ridiculous amount of weapons in how they operate just very boys now. They didn't beat the teams that as you mentioned. LSU Did so I think it's just a confidence. They have is just how loose they are. That's the part that I will probably remember most about the team in terms of Clemson what you said earlier. It's early in the game. They look good. They clearly came out with a plan on offense and it was working But by the end of the Game Trevor Lawrence had completed less than fifty percent of his passes. There was a stat that Espn Sports Info. Put out there that he had. I don't remember exact number. But he had more overthrows overthrows by the end of the night then. A quarterback had had then all but one quarterback at having a game all season in college football clearly. You know it's always hard to say how much which is always L. A.. She was doing were receivers not in the right place. We don't know but the end of the day he had a really bad game and that being said Clemson might wasn't wasn't even a hard decision for them to be preseason number one going into next year he's back. Justin Ross is back I assume travesty channel. Turn pro but you've seen England J Dixon. They're still loaded. They also have three five star defensive lineman coming to need just from listening to Lsu. That was the biggest Thing on the scouting outing side. That was kind of I open. They recruited five star. Defensive Ends in dressers you were there who quite honestly have not been as advertised typed at this point but they do have three five star big dudes coming in that was there was a huge drop off for them last year from from last year to this year up front and I mean I'm with you I mean I I see you have clemson one in Ohio state too. I think those are those are really To be there. Well I think you know we talk during the season and I remember getting the question. Several times in mailbag form. You know is Clemson not is not getting tested in eventually catch up to Clemson and I thought it might. I think I was. I had them at the festival. To in both places Brent Venables all but said like like all but hinted that yeah. We're not as good as as people think we are on defense that he was skeptical coming into the season that they could play at this level. Statistically they did they had the number one defense in the country. Coming into the game played a lot of mediocre quarterbacks correct yeah they were playing in I believe analytically it's considered the worst power five conference of the BCS or C.. P. Era so once you got to this game it was almost like yeah okay. LSU has a big advantage here because ten of US got lit up in the ACC title game and you saw Aj Terrell like they just didn't didn't have the bodies to compete again to their credit. They did beat a really good Ohio state team. But that's if if you're if you're down year on defense is you still dominate. Everybody played until the final game of the season defensively That's pretty good. What I'm a little worried about is as you know so? We are a culture of over reaction especially in college football all even hearing for two years as he never lost a game. Trevor Lawrence sure to be number one pick next year Blah la la or he will going to overreact to this bad performance now because they have eight months to talk about it that okay. Maybe he's overweight or maybe he's not exactly we. I thought he was playing good enough teams. I'm sure they'll be some of that. I mean that's just what what the media cycle is is in some of the talk about you know. I think there's enough time for people to kind of Parse everything about that where it's going to be. I think this is like sometimes last year. He was at his best in the big title title game this year. Not so much of the staff down late in yesterday Late last game. Where in the REPO season game job row had seventeen sound zero picks Great with Martin. It was a wild thing to me. Was the other three quarterbacks. And he's a really quarterback Jake Brown from Georgia Joe Heard from Warns Combined One touchdown pass three picks These are all all American going into this year. You Yeah I really thought Trevor Lawrence is going to be the first draft you know. You're now some people are saying undecided. Agree with but jake from the top ten Absa Jalen hurts put up ridiculous number albeit big twelve certainly is a former. Sec Player of the year as a freshman and just to see you know debris it back unless else. You've just a second a lot of like well. No one's ever have statistically defense outside the top thirty in when they couldn't do it and I think you gotta give Credit Saddam because they were able to dominate. They were able to do more than enough as it to really. They deserve credit for that. Things necessarily necessarily term stinks. Yes well I mean I think Dave Aranda you know you might have had the two best defensive coordinators in the sport in that Game Day Verandah certainly has had a great reputation. They did struggle at times this season but then they figured things out and played their best in the biggest games down the stretch I also got to see you break. News from the sideline of the national title game in the Fourth Quarter which was was really something? It was a frantic moment. So Oh going down. You're allowed to feel that you're allowed to go on the view. Five minutes left the game already down there. Because like Rome's Lova challenging to navigate around. Were downright at tip that new role which is going to be the next head coach at Washington state. And now I gotta try to conferment government as we're doing this like this is not optimum timing. Because I'm trying to text a bunch of people and make some calls and trying to get it out. I wanted to be accurate going to go with it. Then I get the confirmation. I need now. I can't get at this tweet to go through that stadium because the stadium Wi fi in all these people are now taking probably 'cause they LSU winning title all these people who are on their under smartphones as a hurry up into watching the twitter thing go like halfway through their holding it up to the sky ensuring ah added twelve inches of my. My head is going to help you go through the phone around and finally I think that's a good higher for Washington state. I like Nicaragua rich a lot. Hawaii is a tough job you know and they made the Champion Conference Championship game this year. I think that after after eight years of Leach you want another guy who's probably gonNA produce exciting offenses so you know. I think the pack twelve right now is under a still under a lot of pressure to as I did this early. Top twenty five honestly. It's hard to find a lot of teams to put in there from there so The Washington State was on a nice run than they had this down season this past year. And we interesting see what he can do. I think he's good for two big reasons. Why don't you said that's really Huchon? Doesn't have much resources. He did really well. Actually I'm GonNa say this shoe. He is a great of our town just knowing from talking to people he he was the first guy to offer Keaton's Lois us the first guy to offer just her. It was the second guy to offer Sandra. I mean that's significant to be the first one Ozama Dahmer's guys than the third part of this. Is the Leech visa. This he is the most likely to any sitting coach with the possible. Exception of Dana. Right in data came from him. Like roller inches is silly goofy funny. I think he's very smart. He will have some stick gaffe. That's for sure you know anybody. Well he does that. He's he's really entertaining and I think he will keep the identity to be a different identity slightly in in Poland. I think that it makes out. We'll help make that place stay relevant and I think people are GonNa think you'd be interested to see him kind of get on a bigger stage take a little taste of his personality. I mean first of all. He was the guy who chope mountain west media days every year with an Elvis impersonator or something. You know think maybe a Britney Spears impersonator or when you're also if there's any Washington fans listening go find on the Athletic Dula. Google Search Dave South Orange Boise writer had the story when while he played at a boise. The first time this year I guess Negro which had been in an off and on exchange with the fake. Brian Hartson twitter account throughout the years and after their game at like one in the morning he went to the guy's house to meet him the guy behind the fake twitter account. So I think you're right. It's still going to have a lot of fun with your head coach. There are. You had a chance to look at the top twenty five I say the I'm not trying to pat myself backyard. Just think the way. The season shook out my early top. Twenty five last year was was basically like eight of the top nine teams in the early one. That was put out this day year ago. Finished in the top nine. Where did you have? LSU Lesser Sixth the hardest part of doing early top twenty five. These days is as the lower you get right. The top is just like taking the same usual suspects shuffling them around a little bit. So I I had to do a top ten or top ten for Fox for college playoff preview show and I was looking at. We have most of the same suspects in we both had Oklahoma Nine You know top. Five is similar. The Guy Florida's seven Penn state. You have six. I think I had there somewhere around there. I had Oregon number KNBR five. You Have Oregon number eight. That's not that significant. Difference the thing with Oregon's quarterback is going to be right. I think it out I my I guess is it'll be tyler shocked who they're pretty high on You Have Notre Dame Tennessee at U of Wisconsin Eleven. I actually had an. I didn't include it because they only need attend teen gene. I'm toying with the idea of having Minnesota in a top ten. Maybe that's too much Shot Bateman in the brain and Melissa. Tyler Morgan play but there was that We work gets interesting to me mostly. Is You have Iowa thirteen which I feel like that might have been a little lower than your initiative had him in the early draft or somebody else I know is trying to tell me that you you might have seen moving teams around because you know what it was so noted. I'm actually I think Notre Dame could be really good and they're number ten and it was after Notre Dame where it got to be like okay. I'm not sure who. There's a drop off at that point right so In fact I have to thank to Hubbard. He made his decision to come back to Oklahoma state. Okay he nounce it like two hours before the National Championship game I didn't know which way that was going to go so once he did. And I looked at Oklahoma state ours. Ours is This should not be low top twenty five team like I initially thought back to the podcast in a second. We talk about physical fitness a lot. But there's another side of the game that's is just as important talking about mental fitness. Calm the number one APP for sleep.

We did the the bedlam game so I have a lot on Ogle Oakland mistake so obviously talented walls tremendous receiver also coming back. When we did their game? They thought their defense was going to be really good next year. especially in the secondary Kandar. They were really high on them. Ayman on bunged Amiga have to say his name because I had to learn it really productive linebacker in the it makes a lot of plays and so. They're an interesting team I. I'm glad you had them up there. I wouldn't I don't know if I would have thought to have them. If I had to do I wasn't thinking on the top ten but at that point I thought she was leaving. And so that's a big plus Spencer Sanders they think is a talented dual threat. Guy The one that caught my I am. I'm not disagreeing with. Because they should be really really good on the offense align. That's starting point. The Tennessee evolves number nineteen. I wouldn't disagree disagree with it. I mean like I said they're gonNA be really on the on the offensive line What if if your attendance evolves fan what would you be the most concerned with would you? Okay you looked at the St now the difference between being team that can compete with Georgia and Florida or just being one other teams in the in the SEC. Well I think Tennessee and by the way They won six games in a row and the season which means they have the third longest winning streak in the country right now behind. LSU Air Force They they despite being very young on defense ended up being really good on defense by the end of the season season. So you gotta be really excited. If you're Tennessee fan to see most of those guys coming back Some of them even better players for freshman. You know thing with Tennessee. That's been a problem since PRUITT got there and we'll continue to be a problem is he. Just has no confidence in his quarterbacks. He's almost they're trying to win in spite of them and I think as if that continues to be the case this it's hard to group them with Florida Georgia who I think are legit top. Ten teams will see about Jamie new but I do think he has a chance to have a really big impact there but You know I soon. I'd have them low top twenty five. I didn't know I'd have them nineteen but There's a lot this this'll be an important year for pruitt You know. I think we knew there'd be rebuilding job important here though you should say it like. It's hot seat. This is the year where you find out if he has what it takes. Aches to be the next Kirby smart this was a big rebuilding job and early in the early season. I think we were talking about him. Possibly being fired in the Middle Oh the season now he comes out of it. Eight and five a nice bowl in Is next year the year where they take the next step up and actually compete in that division. Asian Once you get to the bottom of the early top twenty five. There's not much difference between those last few teams in the five or so that I didn't consider you know is actually the most unique one I had to deal with Baylor. I don't think I've ever in my time doing this. Had to deal with the fact that one of the contenders doesn't have a coach right now And then I checked with Maxon who covered Baylor a lot. Obviously this season I said Max. I think I'm leaning toward having them out of the top twenty five entirely even though they just won on eleven games is that crazy and he said no. That's not crazy day. That probably is the case they lose most of that Defense James Big Time defense is leaving early for the NFL. Let's add soon. Obviously staff transition will see. We don't know it yet at this point I don't Mike Hunches would find out so probably Thursday what what bail is GonNa do for its new head coach so describe either and then another really interesting one is on a state That was a huge win. Over Oregon late in the season gave people a lot of reason to be back on the Herm Edwards Bandwagon and Jaden. Daniels is the biggest reason for that. He he was great as a freshman quarterback but they losing Benjamin Who is so important into them as they're running back Their office line is not very good. This year. There have to new coordinators. Do you think I mean I think in the PAC twelve. I think this coming year UTAH. Starting over basically I mean they lose everybody from that team we do think. USC has a chance to be pretty good but outside of Oregon and let me USC. I feel like there's a bunch of those teams and I have cows well sinking in there. That could that could go in the in the right direction or could be another seven and five season. Yeah I like the Jet Calendar Top twenty five. We had them in the red box bowl and every player scored touchdowns and I think that thirty. Five points were all sophomores. That's when they had chased garbage and you had the stats seven in one In Games where he was healthy. He's a good young quarterback in so Chris Brown's a big physical running back. The question with them is they lost some really good players back into the Defense Avenue. Gone Ashton Dave's safety fifty. Who has hurt late in the year but he's also gone I think they'll get some of the cornerbacks? Chances still be there and be be leaders of the team But Justin uh-huh done a very good job. I wouldn't put them much higher than where you have them. But I either team just to keep an eye on because they do really smart good the physical football team again. I don't think they're anywhere near close to be a playoff contender. But I think they're one of the better team down the PAC twelve which may be also an indictment of the talso talks and then finally I noticed looking at some of the other early top twenty. Fives I swear. We do not like sit in the hospitality room together and here in in a group thing but we all. UNC is quickly emerging as the trendy top twenty five team for next season seven six this year in Mac round for season but they lost like they had to overtime time losses. I think every one of those six losses by one score they could have very easily had a better record and of course Sam. How was the revelation as a freshman quarterback in that conference France? Where I mean that car conference outside Clemson was terrible this year? There's going to be an opportunity for somebody to rise up. Maybe that's Virginia Tech as they. I considered them. They have a ton of starters back. Maybe Florida State takes a big step in my first season. But I just think there's a path there for UNC given that not just how. The tire team was extremely young. They're actually going to bring back as many as ten returning starters on offense plus chasa rats coming back all right. So that's that's definitely some good stuff to look forward to. Do you want to leave it right here with the podcast. You think. We're both running on fumes from late night and you have to head to the airport so so I think we've got to wrap it up for now. it's been a fun season. It's been a long season. I feel like I feel like that. LSU Texas game.

LSU @ Alabama: How the New Tigers Offense Is Upping the Rivalry's Stakes

"How would you coach put into words? What is at stake this Saturday things on the line will be physical war prepared for the that was the one and only Lsu head coach Ed odor on on his number two ranked tigers take on number three ranked Alabama? Tomorrow in. What's shaping up as the game of the year in College Football Alabama's one eight straight in this the rivalry but this isn't the same old? LSU offense with a heisman hopeful a QB. Could this finally be the Tigers here. I mean times. It's Friday November. Remember eighth this is. Espn daily presented by indeed. So I have watched Joe Borough and Boy Good good good. He looks like a bad guy at A. CW show for teen you know like Yeah Yeah like a bad guy from like supergirl or from Riverdale Ryan McGee is a senior senior writer for ESPN who surprisingly knowledgeable about teen dramas fifteen year old daughter. This is my world so i. I haven't pressed Crest Ryan. You've been covering college football for a very long time. How big of a deal is this? Game is the biggest. And it's not just about the the numbers next to the names. I mean this is twenty years in now of this game determining who wins the SEC west. That's the power division in in college. Football and it begins and ends with Alabama Lsu and you know the numbers are what they are in the national champion trophies are what they are and that's why this game will always be a big deal and oh by the way it didn't hurt it you know. There's twos and threes next to their names. Why is this matchup in particular this year compared to recent years ears? So exciting to watch bill issue is suddenly multidimensional borough steps up. We'll take a downfield Scott I was at the Auburn. LSU Game Two weekends goes Lsu's last game and when you walked the tailgates they're around. Death Valley the questions weren't hey do you think we have a chance against Alabama was. Do you think we'll be favored at Alabama and there's a confidence that comes yes with fan base with the team with everyone involved because now they know they can score points. The defense has been so good for so long and they've had offensive talent. They just not really done anything with that. And now they're running a twenty first century offense as a result everybody believes they can win the game as opposed to can we just just hang with Alabama. You mentioned that defense has been good for a really long time. Some of it stems from back when Nick Sabin who's Alabama's coach now coached. LSU How did he change the program when he came in years ago. I hate the phrase changing the culture so much when it comes to costs football. But that's what he did. And it's interesting when we when I was down there for the Auburn game. So much of the support staff the equipment guys the trainings. That they're all there when when Sabin was there and they all talk about how things changed it was kind of a poor but proud football program. They had their moments but they didn't really have their seasons. They certainly have their eras. Says and Nick Sabin created a completely different mindset which is why can't we compete with the Alabama's and the Auburn's and why can't we play with these guys. And and so he changed everything and great. What if for everyone down there is what would life have been like had? He not left for the dolphins and ended up in Tuscaloosa collusive even as successful as they are. Now it's like man what would have been like if naked stayed but he was replaced in two thousand five by less miles. Feels I think a great debt of gratitude goes to nick. Sabin Is a guy with tremendous vision. How did the team change after that? It really didn't it was more of a I have this machine wine the world. Would I mess with it. They won the national championship on. Congratulations Lsu Tigers. The two thousand eight. BCS National Champions. The problem that occurred was that as the years went on less miles stuck to that original machine. No matter how antiquated it became less miles would literally walk. Walk into the meetings of his offense coaches and they will say coach. This is what we got. And we're adding these thirty pages to playbook awesome. He'd say no you know we have to announce our presence this with authority to we have to play in the box. And win the line of scrimmage and all this stuff and they're like okay that one a lot of games that approach and it continued doing ten games a year but that was kind of it. Maybe the last time a match up between these two teams was this hyped was back in two thousand eleven right went. LSU was number. One Bama was two people. Were calling it. The game of the century you had stars on both sides. This was back when Alabama had AJ McCarron Aaron and Trent Richardson Lsu had Odell Beckham Junior and Jarvis. Landry score that game nine six in the air where I tell you for sure now. Lsu Win that game is so legendary. There're there are people all around the country. WHO said that game was like why are we playing in nineteen forty one game? These are good defensive teams but said that okay just about what thought the holy cow boy. There was so much talent that game so much offense a town that game. Good that was it. It was the heavyweight fight and it still old school football fans point to it as beautiful night football. And that was the night that Alabama from that point forward and they kind of changed what they did later that season the two teams met again in the National Championship through college. Football giants number one number two Lsu Alabama this time Alabama Juan Twenty one to zero LSU couldn't even get the ball past the fifty the yard line in the first half the frustration. There if you're an Lsu fan was you were already beaten. This team wants in this type of football game. And now they've done on a little something extra ostensibly to pull away in. You can't move the football waiting for the snap. Jefferson hasn't roads into the boundary. Where no free and now for the second drive for Lsu Lsu? That office was so awful. That nypd the lack of creativity not even trying to go down. Feel Jefferson's back to pass them second. Heathrow's rose again for Beckham to the forty three. Wow girl party perfect street a double digit gate for Lsu and their second. I down to the game. And that was kind of the night Outta the departure when Alabama went off and did their thing and Lsu just couldn't keep up Alabama gets a second chance let's and makes the most of it they win the BCS championship. How did talk both teams offenses evolve after that ear? Well a Bama evolved L. L.. She did not and Alabama didn't want to evolve. I mean the man who installed that mindset in Baton Rouge had also installed at Alabama to an even greater degree of success and could feel him starting to open the gap a little bit between himself and the rest of college football when that gap started to close a little. Oh they start losing ole miss with you freezes offense they start losing to Texas. AM with Johnny Manziel. Those are the teams that they had difficulty beating. Clemson would well does Shawn Watson. That's when reluctantly nick. Sabin changes entire offense. Well we have some breaking sports news on this Friday evening. Alabama coach. Nick Sabin has hired a new offensive coordinator. He went and hired Lane Kiffin when he was available lane. Kiffin count brought all these young guys with more magic of offense and they started recruiting hurting players. Like Jalen hurts like to talk of a lower and guess what they widened the gap again and they certainly widened it with Lsu who was refusing to do any of this. Why do you think less miles was stuck in his ways? Why didn't he? You know look across Taliban to see what was happening there and decide to evolve. His offense to everyone loves less mile so much and he's the eating the grass guy and he's he still wants to draw defensive schemes up dirt guy all that stuff but that same mentality that makes him so entertaining training and so old school in the mad hatter and all that stuff that also translated into old school offense real man. Football is tractor football and that's what he wanted to do and unfortunately mhm. That's not what everyone else was doing after the break how LSU finally changed its ways on offense and is it enough to get them.

Business deals ran out unless miles meals. You Tigers Against Auburn Saturday night and man. Ain't that the truth. Triple Zeros on the mad hatters career as the school fired. The coach Sunday afternoon soon two thousand sixteen less miles gets fired editor on takes over. How does he go about changing the LSU offense well is interesting? Because I I have known coach for a long time. And what he says he learnt was what less miles never learned. He just started Khanna changing everything and it was like. Let's take the off. It's a talent we have and see what we can do with it. We're going to look at recruiting the best offense a coordinator and football. He hired Stevens meager and just said listen. You're someone with a background in multidimensional offenses. And I'm GonNa ah getting made the promise. I'm going to Galloway which is something that Less miles per all his greatness is never figured out and even at the end end of INSWINGERS first year as offensive coordinator in two thousand eighteen. He went to coach. Oh and said you know what we could open this thing up if you really want to. And so what did he do. He drove down the road in New Orleans and he hired. Joe Brady away from the New Orleans saints you know if you WANNA kill a couple of hours you asked your breeze he's about Joe Brady and And Brady walked in. And he had an entirely new chapter that playbook and from minute one he and Joe Borough who we just transferred state on the same page and video game numbers commenced take up of eighteen burrow back at the end Jeff it works Ryan you mentioned how Lsu had offensive players like Odell Dell Beckham Junior Jarvis Landry. You know who now in the NFL. What do you think they think when they watch this? LSU offense now no it. I think you know we asked Jay about this this week and I talked to several former. LSU players who are in the league. I talked to several former LSU players from back in the day and they all are so excited and they're rooting for this team so hard but they're all super jealous super super jealous who these guys are all all again. My friends who are still on the team are texting and saying man. You have so many touchdowns right now in days like yeah. That's great but then it helped me out now in his numbers were still good. He didn't catch. hit a handful of touchdown catches lot of yards. He gets into the red zone where they weren't gonNA throw it to him in the end zone. Tommy Hodson really really the only pure passing quarterback that Lsu's ever had and he played at Lsu in the late eighties and his career passing record and every broken. He was a starter for years. But Joe Boroughs going to get like two thirds away there and just two years and Hodson was like get at the Cajun accent. He's like McGee. I liked to play one quarter. What's at playbook just one drive? What's at playbook because guys always wondered what could we have done because that was always the question what could Lsu do it? They just let him do it do. Do you think they would have made these changes. If Sabin hadn't changed Alabama's offense not a chance because at the end of the day it's the only measuring stick to care about you know if you go back and look at what. LSU Hasn't has not accomplished over the last ten years it's all about Alabama has or has not accomplished. There's a lot of years in there with one eleven twelve games and they got that one loss the one crucial conference loss. And it's always Alabama so. Yeah if Nick Sabin doesn't do what he did then I don't think they changed it. I don't think there's a lot of schools that don't change. Because they always point to the guy the the goat and say well. He hasn't changed once he changed it kind of gave everyone else the excuse to to open it up. And that's just what college football is now you mentioned that. LSU Fans are still always asking. What if what if Nick Sabin had stayed? Do you feel like coach. Owes success has quelled that feeling of it a little bit and it's because they now have a different identity when they were still basically the same team that Sabin had established head coach ahead put into place and they're still that same team name. The names of changed and nothing really evolved. It's very easy to say. What would it have been like the guy that started all? This was still there. But now that you are playing a completely different from random football offensively and you have a different identity. And Heaven knows from Louisiana you can certainly relate more does Ron. who was literally born born almost on the edge of the by you? That's your guy that's your identity and if you've got coach when you've got that offense you don't need an exciting. That's how they're starting to feel now and the next step in this twelve step plan of cutting yourself off to your nick. Sabin pining is You know beat him once you do that. You're officially over. What are the chances we get a grinded out low scoring slugfests this weekend? I think the chances are better that we will see more points. But there's certainly no lack of chance that will end up with a slugfest and I think the reality is is that as much as everybody l.. LSU loves US new offense handsome fifty points a game as much as everyone. Alabama not loves to and fifty points a game if this game was Nana six. I think there's a lot of people in both fan bases like this feels right as much as they love what they have now. They're still a part of them. That would love to it and I think they're a little piece of saving. That would love to get into more of those so that he would know that his team could win one of those in addition to win one. You know forty eight. Forty one is to again. Apply say yes. He is. Don't believe anyone to tell you that he's not talking all the guys that cover the team full-time and they're all like she's fine. The official line is AH game time decision but I can tell you exactly what that game time this will be which was Number Thirteen. We'll be out there and he might not be one hundred percent but at eighty percent. He's still still better than most everyone else at one hundred. Well we've pretty much guaranteed. It's going to be ninety six. Yeah and if that happens I will thoroughly enjoy walking through the parking lot back to my car and all the old guys look it up going Azriel.

I'd love to hear from you and the reviews. Let us know how we're doing. Where their stories you'd like us to cover? What you you ate for breakfast today seriously anything and now? Here's a story. I want you to know two thousand thousand fifteen. The New York Times magazine published a story about a middle distance runner named Mary Kane when she was seventeen years old Mary became the youngest American woman to ever compete in the world championships. Finishing second in the fifteen hundred meter race. She was working with Nike. As part of the company's Oregon Project an initiative run by a famous coach name Alberto Salazar and she was widely seen as one of if not the most talented high school runners in a generation. Then Mary Kane stopped competing. The reasons were unknown until now yesterday. Mary published a video essay in New York Times. Titled I was the Fastest Girl in America until till I join Nike. I join Nike because I wanted to be the best female athlete ever. I was emotionally early and physically abused by a system designed by Alberto and endorsed by Nike in the video. She says that under Salazar's to Lidge alleged experienced extraordinary pressure and humiliation. She weighed in public told take drugs. That weren't allowed in the sport when she cried out for help. She was ignored recently. Salazar who denies these allegations was banned from the sport by the US Anti Doping Association. A ruling he plans to appeal Nike is shuttering the Oregon Project and the company. Co just stepped down but as Kane points out in her piece. None of this addresses the underlying problem mm-hmm which is that like so many young women in sports. She was being trained in a system designed by men for men under the age of a company that look the other way to subsidize a culture that prioritized winning above everything all of which needs to change with the help I hope of people like Mary McCain I mean

Hour 1: LSU vs Alabama

"If you're hiring with indeed you can post a job in minutes set up screener questions then. Zero in on your short list of qualified candidates using an online dashboard get started at indeed dot com slash. Get up morning. It's time to outwith Clemson or should I say without them. The defending chance. Not In the first I four. What does that mean? We'll tell you right off the top plus the whole season has been about. How good the cowboys really on coming up? We'll explain why you're actually going to find out how starting right now speaking starts all. What a beginning for a fabulous freshman highlights from a wild night at the garden as we get up with you on this jam? The impact Wednesday from New York on. ESPN and delighted to have you here. We are and we have so much going on and I'm doing my best to line. I'm Clark let's go time to visit our oser Joe. We'll be live with the best coach in the country and we want to himself while officially as of last night. He's the coach of the number two team in America because the first upbringing automatic has Ohio state law number one of your time. A big ten team has topped the ranking LSU Alabama and in Penn state round. Out The top four so if the season ended right this minute which of course it does not those of the fourteenth playing it off for the National Championship. Now those it was four teams will meet in short order including of course the game this weekend and what it all means is that Clemson is outside the top four despite having won twenty four consecutive games. They they spent twenty four straight weeks in the top four and the defending national champs. Their streak was the longest of its kind in the playoff era which dates back to two thousand fourteen. So you say to yourself how can clemson be out of this. Clearly their strength of record is what keeps them out. Joey Galloway is with us here and of course defined Joey. I'll start with you. Do you have an issue with the defending National Champs. Not being in the top four. I don't have an issue. I would have them at number one personally but I don't have an issue. We're in the middle of the season and all these teams play one. Another another clemson issue. Either I think they use it as motivation. What do you think Paul Dabo Sweeney went out last night and got Archie Coa and a pizza and celebrated did because he can finally be an underdog again? He didn't like being number one. They didn't play very well. And now I think Clemson is the most dangerous team in the country. Yeah so they sit at number five and they're going to win out they get in. There are certain teams that control their own destiny and then there were those that need help and yesterday. You told me. Watch Georgia and Oregon. We want to try and bring you. There's some information here. That isn't quite so obvious. So you said watch where they put Georgia and Oregon. What was the significance of Georgia? Being ahead of the committee is obviously value in Georgia's win over Notre Dame and obviously over Florida and Oregon sitting out there hoping against hope They don't have anything left on the schedule that will help them until the PAC twelve world championship game against Utah that can be very highly ranked game the PAC twelve is not dead yet but the big ten in the SEC. where the beneficiaries? Last Night Oregon is seven. Utah is eight. They could could play each other in the PAC twelve championship game. In your opinion. Joey do the two big teams in the PAC. Twelve control their own destiny or do they need how well they're going to get help. The the teams played Ohio. State Penn State Play Alabama. This week and they play we have championship game. So there's GonNa be some movement ahead of them. I think from the pack twelve. I'm very excited about two teams inside a top ten because if they get to the championship game and somebody makes a statement that nobody in the conversation when I look down this sheet and by the way. ESPN printing the sheet. That has more information on it than any piece of paper given in my life and I love it. There's were sitting there at number twelve with baylor unbeaten and number seventeen Minnesota on beaten do those teams control their destiny. MINNESOTA DOES MINNESOTA's team. Nobody has thought about this year. They had a big game this week against Penn State should PJ. PJ flag team went out. They are going to the college football player. That's the good news is bad news. Is there underdog in three of the four. Conversely Baylor's is going to be a favorite and three of the four. They'll have to beat Oklahoma and a couple of weeks. I don't know if that will be enough to get them in. I agree completely Minnesota because to get there by definition they'd have to beat the teams that are right now. I'm number one and number four. Is there enough in the big twelve in theory. Could Baylor run the table. Be An unbeaten big twelve champion and get left out of this. They could absolutely get left. The way things setup I think Baylor has come from too far back now. We've seen teams lose these past few weeks here that we didn't expect to lose so they're not out of it but they're going to need some help obviously. Obviously we'll talk more about this as we go but I want to point out one thing quickly. The committee does something very smart or very devious. Depending on how you look at it. They leave themselves room to do whatever they want by putting Alabama and Penn State. Where they did they use the eye test then by putting clemson where they did they use strength of record so basically they've sent a message edge? We'll do what we want to do. And that I think will be the message to the rest of the way. Do Not Trust this committee at any cost because they're playing games with the American public. They know how it's going to end up because they have all the chess pieces and social worth remembering rob mullins. The Chairman is committee. He's the athletic director at Oregon. Now he says says he excuses himself or recused himself he standing outside pulling strings of all right so listen the best thing about this whole system it gives us so much to talk about and we will as we continue but now to the NFL. The cowboys returned to practice today on a short week after beating the giants in the Monday night in New York and Dallas will face a very different tasks asked this weekend hosting kirk cousins and the Vikings. That's The Sunday night game. And it's a very intriguing match-up in particular of the quarterbacks it's the fifth time kirk cousins and Dak Prescott they faced each other as nfl starters and Dak has been on the winning side of each of the previous four. He's one of the last two by an average of nineteen points so as I bring my nfl guys into the conversation leak and our seat as you look at this matchup. You're making an interesting point this morning. About how when we look at deck and cousins and the high profile guys. But they're not necessarily the most important guys. These guys are the most important guys on their own team. Not even their own offices. These this game is about Dalvin. Cook and Ezekiel Elliott. If you're a coaching defense for any one of these teams you want to say made sure debt prescott and Kirk cousins are the guys that have to beat us. And when you're talking about Bob Kirk cousins having eighty four million guaranteed or deck Prescott looking to be the highest paid quarterback in the league. You don't necessarily believe that that's how they should be view. But this is going to be about stopping the run enforcing these two quarterbacks to win the game I understand why people would come to that conclusion and say that similar but I think back as a cut above kirk cousins that has performed in high profile moments. That's criticism about kirk cousins. That performs it makes big plays in playoff games in in late season games. That means something in their offense has been great so far this season. And not just because of Zeke depend on what measure their one or three in offense of efficiency throughout the league. Well they're good and he's doing this even with players dropping passes which we saw in the. That's absolutely dropping pass. But if you look at both of their seasons seasons and we break them down for three games they both might have been the best quarterback in the League but then the inconsistencies sees the turnovers wind Dak Prescott comes out and you're throwing the slant and you throw the ball right to answer on. But they who's standing at the line of scrimmage. Those other plays that you can't have happened kirk cousins injuring four. Fourth quarters where you're trailing eleven times eleven times you're not in in one and so when you look at these two dues. I just believe that if you were like Hey Dallas. We'll give you because this is you'd like. Oh Na keep them but I believe Minnesota would be the same way if you told them they could have Dak Prescott and to me. That's scary Philly for two teams with championship expert. That's that's where we disagree. I think you're you're right about the for three games depend on strikes. Both of them were the best in the League but then regress nearly as much as kirk cousins Dak.. His numbers were still good. I I think the issue with the cowboys is their defense has been really bad. And they put deck and terrible field position during that three game. Stretch where we're all talking about inconsistent and they were bad they were losing. They were near the top. I believe top three for yards gained. The problem was they were starting back on their own tint. So it's not all on deck deck is a patient we homes. But he's above Kirk. You WanNa make a comparison the easiest way we just settle. This argument. DID KIRK cousins lose to the jets. This year I rest my case Manuela so the next quarterback in the conversation. The last time we saw Patrick Mahomes under center was October Tolbert Seventeenth. Remember that it was a Thursday night. He dislocated that kneecap and a victory over the broncos. He's missed the last two games for the chiefs. His status for this weekend against the titans. Titans is uncertain. That's one of several big. NFL Stories. That I want to bring Jeremy Fowler. NFL insider in on with us from Bristol. And let's start there. Jeremy What are you hearing hearing about the latest on Mahomes in his recovery Green. I continue to hear. Chances are pretty good. That mahomes plays this week. Not a guarantee but pretty good one source classified it to me as fifty fifty fifty but it's trending upward now. It's known around the League. Andy Reid has that backup quarterback swag. He loves preparing backups. He's good at it so he he has to roll in that more. He is cool rule but this week we tend was always a more realistic outlook for Mahomes. Then the last two weeks or playing an AFC opponents play implications so overall. It's looking pretty good that she's he slow played this they're not done. They know they have the most important me in the NFL. Well here's another Ni. How about your Kobe percent? Where are we with him Greenie? The colts are absolutely thrilled. That this guy even has a chance to play. Klay Mc L. Sprain. Are you kidding me. They knew it could have been so much worse as he was laying there on the ground. But they're going to be extra cautious. So don't expect a whole lot of work Wednesday Thursday Friday as the big day here. They're gonNA see how much you can take. They really won't make a decision until then and I'm told the colts believe their roster and their ability to handle. Adversity is strong enough that they have to play the dolphins with Brian. Hoyer the destroyer. They're ready to get after it. Those will be the suddenly surging dolphins. Jeremy let's go back and finally Kareem Hunt has served his eight game game suspension. He's scheduled to play for the browns on Sunday. What are their plans for him? Their plans are big. They like this guy's a focal point. They wash them in the off season. He wowed them for months. They said this guy can be a catalyst for us and look. He's number four in there after right now running back are you kidding me. This is a guy who led the league in rushing less than two years ago as a rookie. Thirteen hundred plus yards in Kansas City. But here's the thing too and six but the team at scrutinized Sunday to Monday. How much is really going to matter? You talk to coaches people around the league. They you see a disjointed team without much of an identity that sort of calling plays at random hoping they don't get penalized and so you know the Brown simply hope that Hunky. Come in and be a spark doc. Help Odell Beckham bring some balance to the offense but he's GonNa play with Nick Jeb running back behind him alongside them they'll get created with this guy maybe not the first week but over the next few. Hi Jeremy Well done thank you so much good to see. Let me bring it here. That's quite a sentence calling plays at random. Just they don't get penalized. That's not real football that setting your sights really blow for a team that was thinking championship thoughts. And that's where I want to begin this conversation. I think all of us expected. Oh my goodness they're going to be playing half a season and then they're going to add Kareem Hunt. What does it actually mean for a team that has to six historic as badly as they have nothing like the problem? The problem there isn't that they don't have enough playmakers. They have plenty of playmakers. The problem mm-hmm is there a poorly coach team. They need an adult in the room and it causes adult that they have in the room. Right now is Odell Beckham Junior. He's the guy that they should be following. He's the guy that he's getting a Baltimore he's the guy that should be the lead team right now. Because he's the guy who seems most mature in this situation. I know how crazy that sounds but when I see him speak and when I hear Freddie Kitchen speak or I hear Mayfield Mayfield. Speak The guy who I want to follow his Beckham. No absolutely. He's also playing that way. You look at the effort. Odell Beckham Junior played with the passion that he's playing with how much it it still matters to him. So Win Football Games. It's only been about that for audio Beckham Julia this year but also this needs nothing. Could you imagine thinking about this team in. preseason always say it was after eight weeks. They'll get Kareem Hunt and as to what they'll be doing offensively they aren't doing anything and it doesn't matter if you're calling plays lays at random you can have Jim Brown back there and it's not going to help this team. They have to get better to be clear you they're done for the don't they are done now. The the schedule changes and making win some games but this team cannot be successful. I don't care about this guy because last week. They may be stupid because last week. I was the one on here saying they're going to have a late. Eight season push because they have a lot of bad teams on schedule. The problem is they are also a bad team so bad taste bad teams. They'll get a win here. They're I think they're done and I frankly think spreading kitchens done on in the point you made in the meeting this morning. That team is is due in ages. Bring in Hunt. Put little sprinkles on it. Do you still do an. But that's a huge thing I I said last week was coming into the season changing or the schedule changing that they had to change and you saw them in the post game press conference talk about turnovers and they talked about penalties. Because that's what they're focusing on. They need to be focusing on winning. And making sure you make the winning plays and without a coach that can delegate organized setup. You can't win football okay Dow. Look I mean you can't make the schedule argument when you just lost a Denver without their quarterback that that's pretty much it teams do seem to get better when Joe flacco Sir in the first quarterback ever to get significantly injured in a post game press conference but he wanted missing that one and Cleveland falls in with Baltimore Plan as well as they are probably hopelessly out out of it. Okay much much more football as we go but that we go to the garden where last night the top four teams in college basketball. We're facing off against each other. Let's let's pick it up with Kentucky Michigan State Cash Winston the only preseason all American who is unanimous and Jay Williams. He had gone early on a cast. This Winston the Best Point Guard in college basketball remember last year took his team to a final four. showed off the vision there early but then off the bench came freshman tirees maxine tires Maxi Kit from taxes of knocking. Down shots me outside. Twenty six points off the bench and Greenie as a freshman great poise. He led the team offensive spectacular at eleven points in the first half again off off the bench and Kentucky had a ten point lead John Wall liking it and loving it under five minutes ago now in the game. Michigan State is down seven. That's Aaron Henry on the right wing for the three three so we got ourselves a four point game now Winston driving somehow gets this one to go plus the south he would make the free throw. We got a two point Game Kentucky's next possession. They what are you GonNa do. Do you feel about that. Shot the ball. The Max now remember. This is not the same Michigan state team without jostling for Maxi was not gonNa down at dickey's V was fired up it should what are you looking the Maxi with twenty six off the bench most ever by Kentucky Freshman and his debut and Kentucky wins it sixty nine sixty two. That was one of the Games. How about the other Kansas and duplicate boys boys day rule has fired up its Alma Mater? Dei here goes to the game. It's Tom Sibito and some guy sitting next to him. It might have been Kevin Durant. Okay here we go now. We've got the ball movement. Jayhawks starting Fast Abbasi knocking down a big time three look. He's going going to be a critical piece to this team. Ville sell played extremely well in the first half do could do this with defense last night. How about the steel and go the other way plus plus twenty turnovers for Kansas? And that's what do basketball is to be. They have to be great. Defensively Trade Jones of the Great Pass Gases Stanley with the Bang. trae Jones the one one guy from last year that you remember the one freshmen. Who did not wind up going to the NBA? The blue devils had been way behind where they come back to tied up thirteen seconds ago. Kansas down three questionable questionable shot selection. Here they they try for two twos down three that I wanted to getting either to go and in the end it is duke. That gets the win. Sixty eight sixty six. The two huge games at the garden and they did not disappoint and again the numbers next to the team. Names were one two three and four last night. The most people are just getting set for their college college basketball season in your opinion. Which is the best team in college basketball as we begin the air? Okay right for the screening Yahoo yesterday. Kentucky voted a blue state. It looks like everything's moving. Moving in the Blue State Direction Brooke Kentucky but I think Overall Kentucky will be a Red State I think Louisville it will be the best team in the Country Kentucky and Louisville this battle. I don't know that we all know that they have. We'll be one of the most epic battles we've seen in college basketball this year now Teresa Maxi when the best players in the country. Calill Whitney is a guy that is actually projected above him in a draft but Jordan nor is the name in college basketball he will be Stub for Christmas and Louisville. Wow So Louisville number again. We had one two three and four last night. But that will vote from if you will from outside the district or using your political terminology. Who you think? They're the best team in the country. I I just think that Chris has his team loaded. The ready to go Kentucky will be number one one in the projected polls this week after beat Michigan State telling a Louisville has experienced and have the talent to win the whole thing. Wow all right we have more this as we go. Meanwhile as I get up and go I have more. We're ready for the no. You threw me off dock awake. I have a question for you. HOW ABOUT MEMPHIS FRESHMAN? James Wiseman Twenty Eight and eleven in his debut. How good is this guy? James Watson has a potential. It'll be the first pick in the NBA draft. This kid is talented. Six ten can shoot the ball from the outside has great hands can dominate. Download a bucket. Also I mean his versatility overall green is what makes this kid. Special Memphis has one of the top recruiting class in the country. Also precious chewing. That's the name you recognize. It's going to be loaded their staff. Sorry I walked in front of you. next jags coach. Doug marrone says Nick foles. We'll get back and starting job this week from Gartner Mint you are seeing. Is that the right call. This is the right move. You went out and got nick foles because he was a super super bowl. Mvp He was the guy you should be trust and take you to the next level. And that's what they're expecting him to do you like that Mitch. You kept his team. Afloat kept them in wildcard record contingency. But now it's time for Nick. foles come in and do what he was brought to Jacksonville to do. And that's next on Monday. The athletic reported the chargers are considering considering a move to London partly because of concerns over the La Market yesterday chargers owner Dean spanos emphatically denied that report. Listen to this install okay. We're not going to London. We're not going any worse. Were playing Los Angeles Bizarre home and this is what we're planning to be for a long time period. Okay and if you want me to say it again I'll say it again that story. Okay thank you say it with me everybody. You stay classy San Diego. Here's the deal first of all. He's the same guy who promised everyone he would never ever leave San Diego because that's his home forever and then jumped to La as fast as you could look. I'm not suggesting. They are indeed moving to London and there are a lot of issues that would come with moving a team to London but I am curious to know if you guys think that it is sort of beneath a person his position in the national football league to be talking that way we had to bleep out a bunch of sound by a lot of words that he used there. And I gotTa tell you I found it off putting yeah I mean he's got a potty mouth and that's what happens sometimes it. Frankly doesn't bother me. I don't hold them to some higher degree of like ethical behavior and profanity is unethical. I'm fine within. We don't need to keep it for me. It's fine with me but I think the part that bothers me more is like he's acting act like it's absurd that anyone was suggested boy just moved a couple of weeks ago. You could move your team anytime like that's that's who you are and played. He played in front of forty thousand people rooting for the other senior. This path to be honest with you. I'm different than what Dominique is on this. Now we've been rules with these people. We definitely don't hold them to a different moral standard but when it comes to players. Here's if player was speaking this way. It will be all types of things about his character understanding what position he's in. Oh there are people watching you. This guy owns the team. So if you're going to to talk to these players this way if you're going to ask them to conduct themselves in a certain way then you need to as well and it's absurd that someone would think you would move a team because bro you you did it already current I look. I have no issue with him. Disputing the story and if frustrated by the fact that this was reported on. That's fine as a different way to say that was Baker. We'd be flipping out as we continue on get up. Meanwhile we got Russell. Wilson Carson wentz Aaron Rodgers. Why one of those stars will be watching the playoffs from the couch?

Beat beat Alabama. Let's go LSU was number for two in the College Football playoff rankings. Entering this weekend third time they've been in the top four previous to also came in the initial ranking Joe. Borough has been accused part of the reason. Why and he's got a lot of steak this Saturday including an opportunity to increase his heisman? Stock his thirty passing touchdowns are second in the country. That's already the most in a single season in program history so on Saturday. Lsu was a six and a half point underdog according to Caesar's hour FBI gives the Tigers eight twenty eight percent chance to come away with a win right. But don't tell that to the guy sitting next to me that's Ryan Clark and don't tell it to the guy sitting on your screen that's Lsu head. Coach does Ron Coach. We thank you very much for joining us this week. And let me start. You're right there with the rankings. Last night and get your reaction the first rankings were released as obviously you saw your team's number two. What was your reaction to where they put you guys? Don't I'm thinking great for university is Great Football Team but it doesn't matter. We have a big game that saw focus this week coach with that being said we've been waiting for November ninth breath all year the rankings. Come out guys are number to hire you. Keeping the team focused on the main thing which is going to Tuscaloosa and getting a win over a team. We have been beaten in eight years. Iran is you know we have a very mature team great leadership the focuses on fundamentals mental technique. The folks about Lsu gets better this week. You know we'll be ready to play those drill into that a little bit here. How would you coach put into words? What is at stake this Saturday? Everything's online things things on the line. I believe in this football team but you know what we don't make the game bigger this. This is an important game for us. Obviously to get what we want to go when we take it one game at a time. Okay I'm GONNA actually ask almost for your help with that because between Marcus Spears and Ryan Clark. I can't control my studio this week and it's only Wednesday. How do you deal with the emotions of your players? Who are a lot younger than they are on a week like this you know? Obviously there's about focus offices about practice. I was about the task. Ask You Dan. I'll tell them to block out the noise. We don't talk about rankings. We don't talk about anything else with Lsu get better today are see. How different is it for a player on a week like this absolutely different? Like coach is going to try to keep these guys calm but they remember the games of not scoring any points come in highly raked. They're going to want to win. But what I want to ask you coaches. How important would Joe Borough Pizza that I've watched LSU says before? I got to school there. Ninety seven obviously after. He's been the most important important player to a team. I've ever seen since Kevin Faulk in Ben Route. How important is he going to be to winning this game on Saturday? was you know. Joe Greater the pressure. We loved the ball in his hands on the pressure. Just like he made the playing his Texas third down seventeen. We've been in a hostile environment. We blaze some big-time teams. We've played some great defensive lines so we ready this Joe Boroughs of winter. He's a leader. We believe it I coach. I'd like you to share a story that we talked about this. We just to give a sense of how personal something like this to you. You were born and raised in Louisiana. You played your college football northwestern state but I saw you tell the story that you were actually recruited at one point by Alabama and bear Bryant. And that your dad got involved in that. I'd love you to share that story with our audience so long time ago about football team. That was a recruited player obviously ended up signing shoe. The assistant coach Gold Coast. Bryant was GONNA come to my house. I told my daddy said There's no use missile was. She was like. Hey coach. Listen I love that. And all I gotta say coaches I still remember it. We come in a we backing down and I can't wait for Saturday night. We come does. It wouldn't cook final thought and coach very much. Appreciate your time today. We know it's a big week. Does the fact I mentioned what Las Vegas things. What the experts think what the history of all that is? How does all of that go into the way you prepare your team to play play this week? Nothing above today's turnover whizzes about the football. We're plus four day plus thirteen. We've got to win the turnover battle. This'll be physical war. You got wounded game. On the line of scrimmage will prepare for coach. Listen we thank you very much again. I I can't keep these guys. I have no idea how you're handling this best of luck like this week. Thank you so much for the time today. And we'll see Saturday guys go tigers yes very is there's coach. Oh are hired. Let me bring it out to the desk here and bring my college football guys. Joey Galloway they don't do this. Don't do this at the horseshoe. It's the WHO work man. I worked in the past. Nobody worried about bet. Let's talk about this for minute here because this is the kind of game that I think. Even if if you're not a huge dyed-in-the-wool college football fan you get super excited for maybe four or five games a year. Here's the one. This game obviously means everything. The history is all on Bama Emma side right and he never loses at home. What should give the Lsu fan cover yours a second here are say what you give the Lsu fan reason to believe this is going to be different? They have to to believe it because they said the exact same thing last year and the game was twenty nine in Tiger Stadium. Joe Borough was the quarterback quarterback but this is a different job. Brady wasn't there. I knew the coordinator borough is. I mean he's that kind of good watch quarterback so that kind of I had I had a guy called me last night. So what's different job. Girls a different player yes they're different mindset but the big question is can they go there and win Joey. Tha- that's what we we have to believe We don't know the answer to that. I don't have seen one player. Take as big a jump in from once. He's to next job burroughs. Take it and I don't know that that has anything to do with the coordinator because I I always ask us. Can you teach a quarterback how to anticipate things How how to see things before they're open and they've all said to me? I don't think you can teach it has to be in a quarterback. I can t birds going that this season as well as anyone out there he makes LSU different but they're still going on the road they're still going Alabama and they still don't know there's not a player on that team that has the Alabama. Do they believe that they can think they believe because one thing is like these kids are ignorant to that and even if they played in this game when you look at your more more chasing Justice Jefferson terrorists Marshall Joe Borough all of these guys are four and five stars seen these dudes at different tournaments at different type of camps. The other part is this. I stood next to a scout in August and I watched Joe Borough make five starting. NFL caliber throws at practice. I turn to him. I said I didn't know we had and I tweeted about it vet date and we've seen those things in a pro style offense from passing standpoint. I've got to say one thing coach going to Alabama. He said something blasphemous a minute go. Nobody goes to Alabama after saying I turn bear Bryant away. That's not happening. It's going to be really interesting. We'll get preneurs Emmys as coach if he wasn't worried about bear Bryant thin worried about nick. Say Look these. Kids are all recruited by the same places. LSU Kids for years. I can look across the field and say we're as good as they are. They just haven't gotten will this finally be the year that they do. We'll talk more about it as we go. Meanwhile back to the NFL Dominic Foxworth. The jump back in with me here. Let's play contender pretender and we'll focus on the NFC four now eagles. Are they a contender or pretender to make the playoff air contender Carson Wentz as we all know. MVP caliber player. He's fantastic. They got a running game now. That looks a lot more impressive in the evening because they're often the line is playing well that D. Line this game healthy at the right time and playing pretty well. I know the secondary is a lot to be concerned about but I think also a little bit faith in them because we've seen him do it before how about the Seattle Seahawks seahawks contenders or pretenders pretenders man like they are of Mediocre team with an outstanding quarterback. They've had four fourth quarter comebacks. This this season to win and and I know that's something to celebrate and that's reason to talk about why Russell Wilson his MP candidate but that tell you that this team is not very good their defense about twenty six in the League Davey and cleanliness playing well but everybody open I defense not doing well. They pretenders in atop. NFC again this is to make the playoffs fascinating. They play San Francisco on Monday night. Football coming on the unbeaten niners. It's an interesting match up to you agree. Do you not by Seattle do by Seattle and I do understand that they have deficiencies. I tweeted about it. I've talked about it defensively but right now Chris Carson is running the the ball will again. which gives you play surpass tyler? Lockett a decay metcalf have really been revelations at the wide receiver position. Because you were nervous about losing ball with I. I think Monday tells us a lot more about this team. But right now. This team is definitely a contender for the play offs. And I believe even in a tough enough see there will be right there. I like everything as you say. You'RE NOT WRONG ABOUT ANYTHING BUT HAMAS why you've been on the saints so far this season is because they've played good teams and they have some good wins against good teams. I've looked at Seattle schedule. They don't have any really impressive wins in their schedule only gets harder in the bad teams that they beat they needed to do it with fourth quarter comeback. This team is not good. That'll change Tuesday morning and find out one way or the other quickly. They signed Josh Gordon. They're trying to get him ready to go. Can he make a difference there. You mentioned no absolutely definitely make a difference. Whenever you had a player of that caliber it helps and especially when you you have to wide receivers that are playing very well doing things that are specific to their skillset? I'll say this Hembo look this up for me. Hey what's the last time. MVP came from a team. That didn't make the playoffs. I'm not sure that's happened in a long time. That would hurt Russell a lot. Meanwhile here's another guy who might be the MVP the league. Lamar Jackson says incredible. Things are see sussing something on Sunday. That caused caused him jump out of his seat and then tweet about it. It's everybody's favorite five minutes as I read Ryan's tweets and then I told you Lebron was going scorched earth this year. You're wait till you see what he tweeted last night all that more coming up get up on. ESPN it's time for Ryan Clark to explain his tweets getting a gym well. I just got buffalo chicken debate over Baker Brook Law Law and everyone laughs at the way I read. Your tweet fact. Can't even do it with us. All right this week is going to be particularly really funny Here we go Ryan Clark tweets during all the football games it's awesome. You should be following him and then now we will explain some of these. Here comes the first one man that was so slippery. Brie Lamar is clean in the pocket. Borough Ryan explain that. Listen this is very simple. It was late in the game the New England patriots like we got him. We're going to make him see goes. Because that's what we do say young quarterback. He was hitting boys with him. It was James Harden Kyrie irvings. Those John Moran on his watch give this due to lay take get away. Oh you go call you feel watch me hit you with the up and under and this and then he steps out of that what I just did I do it all the time. I don't do it to the they're not used to it and those dues walked off the field respecting Lamar as soda. Tom Brady he played his way into the MVP conversation in in that game all right the next tweet from Ryan here we go little. WHOA Jerry? Jones gone stunt after the job. WAS THAT LIL little war. The war all. Oh Jerry Jones gone stunt after this dub go he goes stop. Okay yeah go after this stuff. But this ain't wanted to be shoo shoo inbound right so shoe shoe and Kiki Tiki and yes. Those are interchangeable. If caught doesn't spasm at the end of the half those okay go ahead on the giants. This game is different. The Eagles are watching this off. Top we on broad damn heads next run. Just tell me what it means. Okay so so if you're watching this his game and you're the eagles you take it to yourself. This team is beatable yet. They beat US two weeks ago but they're inconsistent. They can't come into Philadelphia and win the game and our schedule always is better down the stretch. When you watch this team Jerry Jones GonNa get on his radio show? I think we're going where we need to what he even knows in the building he likes saint. I don't I don't think we really liked it. And so you watch this see. They have to be more consistent. Jason Garrett has to get the team playing better and Kelly Moore needs to figure out a way to get them off to a faster star defensively or this season is going to change drastically down the stretch. Okay very good next one next Ryan tweet here we go the more you watch Seattle. The more they they turn into Russell Nam if they didn't have him bad news like snoop said they like Harold. Melvin without the blue note never go play. Never go platinum Graham. Grab listen when you have a lead singer. There's a reason why there was never a album for the pips that we know about because Gladys Knight and wasn't there no more and this the same same thing with the Seattle seahawks dom was right. This team isn't very good without him. Without him they may be more like the Seattle Mariners trying to play football but with him they are. RT Naked Compete in the game. Close at the end. You feel extremely good about what you're doing. When you have Russell Wilson? If something happens to them they should stop playing football. Football is Seattle Russell. Wilson can't play. Don't go to the game. Don't dress out. Don't do none of that but as long as you got. You got a chance and I asked the question to him but when he answered the last Aston. MVP Not to make the playoffs with OJ Simpson. So it's a long time ago last week Lord have mercy. Was that right Chris. Johns just ran that. That boy into Kirkland Baby Wall well pretty damn good. Hey if anybody if anybody is rap right now you know the baby baby just put out an album. Called Kirk Chris. Jones was injured. He hadn't been playing defense wasn't playing well and he said you know what if you want to stand in front of me Sir. I will just this walk you back. It's occurred this is what this defense needed. It needed to be different. Kirk cousins. Goes up against Moore and he can't win. Why can't you win because because you can't complete balls from your bag and that's exactly what Chris? Jones Chris. Jones came in and changed the way the team played up front. They needed him and right now now I know he was in the locker room listening to the baby. Listening to Kirk because joint slaps and he played like do that was fired up Rex Ryan on this show. Monday said he's the second best defensive tackle in the League Donald. I want to bring Dominika as usual rather rather than have you explained something else to me. Another play from that same game with Kansas City. You wanted to look at when I see them red colors. I get upset. Did you see that play. Where tyreek Hill Watch this tyreek hill? He not even into play bad boy. Good God why won't I swear when I saw this clip on the Internet. Look at look at speed. He ran past everybody. I don't know what next ten sets that he was running but I saw him running. This was so bad that when I saw this play alleged started a call a team so I could sign just so I can retire again. Cocaine no corner. I don't care how good you I'm. Sorry Stefan Gilmore you nasty. You could come anybody anybody but you better have a safety over the top lattimore. You better get somebody over the top. Because he is breaking defenses as much as we wanNA talk about Kelsey mahomes all of them were guilty to worry. It's about that is that was all the show off. Like he understood he had to catch jail. Vander Block of the show the world. How fast I am Damien Amy Williams saying? Don't do that to me. You know I was joking about a sign of another team but what is not a joke. I actually had a dream last night. That was a corner. Had to prepare for that and that really seriously I would go this morning with stress. Real OP stress. On the telecast. They said he was running twenty two miles an hour. I do want to talk about one. A guys that fast. What it is you do to deal with that and how it changes the told you what a safety over the top every plate everyone very good all right Krista all as we France the man is Fast Hartlepool Lakers both we've got some NBA? We got J will Lebron James and Anchor David. Their team had won five straight but both of them were on the bench early in the fourth quarter with their teams down thirteen and Kyle. Who is my brought them? Back Cal coups Muslim playing extremely well showing bill dancer the ball Dwight Howard play well. Queen Cook is knocking down shots from the outside. Lebron James Elevate everybody around who's scored fifteen six Dwight Howard swatting Kobe White. Dwight had six points and six. Four hundred twenty twenty four minutes off the bench dry is in the conversation for six man of the year potentially right now. He's accepted that role and he's playing. Well but here's your guide Quinn. Hugh knocking down to stop. And the outside look their ability to knock down shots from the outside will determine whether this team can win the world champion. They were down nineteen at one point in this game now they have a lead now. Here comes Lebron in isolation now Lebron is one assist away from a triple double and he takes care of that with that dish. So Lebron James Becomes the first Laker with three straight triple doubles since Magic Johnson. Thirty two years ago and for good measure the alley the two. Ad Lebron thirty points. Ten boards eleven assists and the Lakers win. And I want to this show you something. That Lebron tweeted after the game. So the Lakers tweeted that stat. That I just gave you first. Laker with three straight triple doubles thirty. Two Years Lebron quote tweeted it with with the Hashtag washed king and that Emoji. And here's what I love because I told you said it and I said it all year Lebron James is going on a scorched birth tour. He was listening. He was listening to us all through the playoffs last year debating. WHO's the best player in basketball is a is a durant? Is it hard and it still Lebron. And he's proving living in Greenwich. Here's the one thing I love about. Athletes especially super elite competitive athletes. Like I consider myself not ille- athlete but very competitive when I go to the Internet. I don't look for articles or people that praise me. I find the people that say. Oh you stink all you do that. That motivates me. That's who Lebron James James Is. He leads the League in assists and the most important part about Lebron James while he will probably be. MVP The season. Even if there is low management he elevates everybody around him. Anthony Davis plays better queen cooked Max down shots from the outside Dwight Howard who would have thought Dwight Howard sixth man of the year conversation earlier in season he elevates everybody around but we can talk briefly flee about Howard. He has accepted that rule. And that's something that a lot of stars and he does constitute that don't want to do late in their careers but if he does he is an effective piece for that. So you need a motor if you're Dwight Howard. He has all the athletic towel. You just need a motor. And when he plays like a mantras Herald type player. That's right Howard gets the best out of Dwight Howard. But but it takes a guy like Lebron James to lead by example to make Dwight Howard beat Dwight Howard. We every Game Lebron yes. There's no load management you cannot be the metric Hawaii sitting sitting out another manage a little bit. But here's the crazy thing about look Lebron he doesn't care about what anybody else says. He's going to do what he needs to do. More for his team to win a world champion played eighty two games his last year in Cleveland. I would love to see him not sit out a bunch of games this year one way or another. Don't Miss sportscenter tonight. With Stephen a Smith presented by mountain dew.

"The Paul finebaum show podcast is brought to you by capital. One capital. One is reimagining banking offering account with no fees or minimums that can be opened in only five minutes Capital One. What's in your wallet Capital One and a day three of the basketball tournament and the big dogs? Have finally arrived. The cats are playing it about four hours. They'll take on Alabama as a cold front has moved into music city. But it is pretty hot inside Bridgestone arena as Florida and LSU or going down to the wire. And the wire has just gone to the Gators with one second remaining one of the bigger upsets of the tournament perhaps about to begin the show is right ahead of us. And we'll take a quick look at the bracket here. But it's about to change as we're waiting for the winner of Florida and LSU Nasreen hit a three pointer. Ago to tie it. And the Gators have just gone on top with nem hard member. We had him on Wednesday. He just hit the biggest shot of the tournament. As it looks like the Gators. We'll have to wait and see, but they still have one second to go. Meanwhile, Aubert in South Carolina will meet later on talk about some happy crimson tide. Irs Avery Johnson's team on the brink of elimination for the season. They were down by fourteen at halftime. But they pulled it out last night. I just asked him to please turn the ball over five times or less. So we turned it over six time. So I'll forgive him. Which is we were just beating ourselves. Oh, MRs an incredible team Carmen is obviously coaching a year, and I told him congratulations done a great job with his team. But give our guys credit. This team seems to respond when our backs are against the wall, and I'll bags definitely were against well tonight. So every Johnson has done well in the tournament. Against everyone. But the team you gotta do well against to advance Kentucky's. Oh in three he's an underdog tonight. New. I'll re Travis will be playing tonight in that game. As Kentucky finally shows up here at the SEC tournament and Tennessee. Yes, they're playing as well. Everyone's playing tonight, Tennessee taking on Mississippi State, and we have a final a few feet to my left and the number one seed in the tournament has gone down. The Gators do it with three pointer with one second remaining to knock off the Tigers. Who at one point had a ten point lead in this game? But LSU head coaches at home Germont smart did play pretty well at times. But the Tigers will have all weekend long to rest up. They will clearly hear their name early on Sunday. But we'll this loss affect their seating a little bit right now. They had been projected a Batta to see no, no real shot at a one. But could they slip? Two three that will be one of the discussions and remember it was just a day ago that the Gators were literally on the brink of elimination against the Razorbacks. They win that game. They win today. And the Florida Gators under my quite putting a rough season in their rear view mirror as they get ready for the semi final round tomorrow. So the big story of the day is in the gator fans of got to be happy. And we got a lot to do on a Friday afternoon that we will keep you company all afternoon long Kyle Tucker from the athletic. He covers Kentucky. We'll talk to him. Glenn Guilbeault on the manic seen in Baton Rouge all week with will way being jettison data there, and we'll talk about the Tigers now packing for home as well. John Adams on the amazing ride of the Tennessee vol's. He will join us right here. A little bit later. Eddie, Montgomery, one half of the famous moll. Montgomery gentry. Of course. Eddie gentry passed away about two years ago and a tragic crash Eddie Montgomery from the state of Kentucky. He's playing at the grand ole Opry. He will join us later on the Commissioner comes by in our final hour. Mike Jackson SEC legend played with the Ernie. And Bernie show he'll be with us as well. Walsh will take your phone calls as we are between games. And that's usually when the noise level outside the arena matches what you heard at the end of the LSU Florida game inside. So we'll try to be heard over the ten of the crowd. I said we'll try let's get this phone. Call eight five five to four to seven to eight five which start with Ron in Texas your first upper on. Paul good to talk to you today. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you. I got a question for you. And then I wanna make a comment about something. I read this morning. Was there anything I didn't get to see that LSU Florida gang. Was there? Anything in there for the LSU fans to whine about. I'm sure there will be but. You know, they hit a three pointer with about six seven Nasreen at one. And then then Florida answered it. So I don't think they'll have too much wine about they're in the tournament. But you have to wonder their their interim head coach teed up late in the game. We'll could would have we'll we'll wait a made a difference. I don't know. But it's worth remembering the Gators. Now beaten LSU twice this season. Have you heard anything yet about this? New breaking investigation by the FBI. Yeah. I've heard a little bit about it. Ron we'll talk to Glenn Guilbeault later. Thank you for the call. And let me let me let me warn callers if I sound like I'm hard of hearing. I'm not yet. But it's just awfully loud in here. We are in the mezzanine. We you ask. Well, why don't you do the show? You did Wednesday inside the arena, you cannot. It's hard to do the show while the games are going on. So it's maybe more difficult to do this while the games are not going on. But when they are going on it's pretty quiet out here. Let's get back to the calls Zach. And what I assume is very happy Gainesville Florida right now, how are is that? Dylan on can't knock him believe it. I can't believe they pulled it off, man. I'm so proud of my Gators. That was games. I agree. Well, you know, regardless if they would have lost win. I think would have been stupid if they would have left. The Gators out of instinct up were tournament play that routine will all year nothing that deep deep stretch, then to at least a six a Sweet Sixteen and you know, I think the Gators, you know, to go all the way whether plan right now, Paul side. Go gator. Got it about let me apologize. I've mentioned Eddie Montgomery coming on here a minute ago. And I ended vertically described his former partner by the wrong name. We're talking about Troy, gentry Choi gentry who passed away in that tragedy nearly two years ago. So wanna make sure we clarify that? But eighty Eddie Montgomery, one half of Montgomery, gentry will be with us in a minute in. He had opportunity to meet Troy at a benefit a couple years ago. And I had a great conversation with him, and he is sorely missed but forever remembered by country music fans here in national and everywhere else. So again, we have a final in the book. The Gators win seventy six seventy three with a dagger with one point two seconds to go. So Florida a team given up for dead a few weeks ago I team in the semi finals. That will be the one o'clock game Tamar from Bridgestone. They'll take on the Auburn, South Carolina winner. So you'll you'll have. Depending on it doesn't really matter who it is. I mean, you the lowest seed one of the lowest see left here. We'll be playing in that game. Let's continue with more phone calls here at eight five five two four two seven two eight five and Jordan is up next in Tennessee. Hello, jordan. Hey, paul. How are you? We're doing great. Thank you. Yeah. Just want to talk really really quick seems to me that there's a lot of blue in the in the stadium. It looks like all the panel this morning with wear blue ties blue. It's all over the Rena. I'm just going to tonight falls going bring it that'd be. Oh, thank you. Yeah. You know, it's interesting. Sometimes during a game when you're when you're right outside the arena, you listen when somebody scores it was pretty obvious blue and orange was the predominant color in that arena for the first game. Many more Florida fans than LSU fans, which is a little bit surprising considering what a great year LSU had. But tonight, it will be a battle of blue and orange even though Tennessee and Kentucky may not meet until tomorrow. The fans will be battling it out here tonight. Because even though we are in the capital of Tennessee. We're not that far from Kentucky. And the Kentucky fans have taken this town over Tennessee fans are pretty pretty omnipresent as well. Let's continue with more phone calls and Scott in Columbia, South Carolina, Scott go right ahead. Good afternoon. How are you? Thank you very much got. Look, I would I'm not an LA. Hugh fan binding means not Florida fan. But I was watching the football gang of the basketball game this afternoon. And I saw what a play that. I didn't understand. And that was what results then take Nicole? Dial. Against the issue being was playing not reviewable or derail blow it or what do you think about that? Yeah. I must admit I literally just walked up to the mezzanine as as play was going on. I think it was a foul on now's read and. Both both the interim coach and the bench went crazy. I thought I thought the technical was on the coach not to bench, but it did seem to be a rather unusual. Pointing to game to get a foul. I'll see if I can get some more clarification on that. I got that. I don't have a great handle on that not being in the arena at the moment that had happened. Thank you for the call. Do. Appreciate it. Let's move along and talk to Matt in San Antonio. Hello. Matt blown it. Pose you any more information being Tunde? Did he get fired or not if laws yesterday? Yeah. Nothing official has been mentioned about coach Kennedy. I mean, I don't have any doubt that he will be replaced. There's no doubt about that. But because I heard a rumor about you wanna go to listen, I don't I mean, here's something to learn from reports like that. When you see a report, Matt, and nobody denies it read something into that. And I think it's a fate accompli. That. Chandy will be replaced. But but apparently the administration waiting until they get back to Texas, which I assume is about right now. Leeann like one question for you. She to if they'd replace them weakening Grasser. It's my first question. My second question is I'm like they need to buy out going to be. For coach Kennedy yet. I don't know that I think it's. I can't imagine it's a massive buyout. But I don't know the answer that Matt I'll see if I can get that. Thank you very much for the call. Appreciate it. We're up against a break here. We are live in Nashville day one day two and now day three we've been here all three days nice day outside if you like cold weather, but considering this event is inside probably not gonna bother to many people. Let's consider the secret life of the Imos nesting doll living, most of her life in the dock inside the other nesting Dole's has plenty of time to think if could sadly she has no brain, however, when in most nesting dole, his gyco not only saves people money, but also has been providing great service over seventy five years. She thinks it's obvious. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to Geico is a no brainer in a most nesting Dollond lot in life. Welcome. The radio Porsche, the audience back to apologize to you already told the TV folks that we had a glitch while we were chatting, we're going Guilbeault LSU football basketball baseball, really doesn't matter. Something is going to go wrong. And it did go wrong. What we were talking about. While some of you were away listening to. Messages was the fact that we went through the what happened on the court, Glenn you still believe as you were leading to that LSU's on the to line could drop to three possibly with this with this early exit. But I mean, they were sixteen to the regular season they want they won the championship. They beat Kentucky and Tennessee at Rupp. So they deserve to. I would say Danny brand telling me Joe Leonardi not that he is the last word, but he's our best word has LSU currently on the three. Hard to really argue all day. What all this means. But you'd rather be too. Sure sure, I think they deserve to. They haven't been that high of a seed two or three since the nineteen eighty eighty one season. And this team set the school record for road wins in the SEC this. This was a great season. Even with this last second loss here. Okay. Devante smart played. We'll take that. Then we're going to back up to will wait because my smart playing. What does that tell you? Well, they thoroughly investigated. Devante smart. As far as interviews with NCA officials and LSU flew to NCAA officials in early this week and was working nonstop according to LSU, and they got they didn't find any irregularities on the devante smart and of it. So he was allowed to play, but they're still investigating. So he could conceivably be held out of the next game is what they're saying. He was just cleared for this one game. And until further notice, so they're still looking at it. Yeah. And I'm trying to understand that because. They don't have with the feds have right? He's not on tape about this conversations about him are. Yes. So how does that correspond to future eligibility? If you have we'll wait on tape talking about it. But there's no contemporaneous evidence. Implicating dante's. Right. Well. It sounds like they need a little more from the. Devante smart. And then just weighed mentioning. Offer taking if you just make an offer it's against rules for weight. Right. If you just make an offer if doesn't doesn't necessarily implicate the player, right, right? And if the offer is not taking it still indicates the coach, okay, I'm going to go back to that. Because we've had so many things happened today that that have made us forget how this week or last week really began. So I haven't forgot kind of any. There are some beets in America that just are precious to cover and mind boggling and probably you're probably OD on your favorite IB proven, but doesn't exhausted. The kind of take us through the way conundrum in. Before we get to what's happening next. I'm trying to understand really what has been going on all along. Well, like, I was telling you earlier if you're a sports fan, the Anna you had to Texas game one football, and they should call the grant dealt but hit of fumble LSU wins that game in overtime steady called it. Incomplete pass and Texas am wins. The state should have gone to the Super Bowl. We saw that. Call. And now the LSU basketball team is having its greatest season since nineteen Eighty-one ruddy in many ways. And then all of a sudden, they're coach is gone suspended subpoenaed. And then this very damning federal tape wiretap from Yahoo sports. And then all of a sudden, everything is just just a mess. And it doesn't look like we'll wait is gonna return to LSU unless he can at least start the process and meet with LSU NCA officiant show. Let's go back to when he. Suspended. Why he he essentially was was told he had to come in and under the council. He chose not to that. Is that right, right? He at first he was going to come in. But then his attorney told him not to and his attorney and LSU's attorneys spoke Sunday a week ago. And according to LSU that attorney never brought up this basketball investigation and trial. But then he brought that up in a letter Tuesday. So LSU doesn't feel good about the way Wade's being represented. And and even if there is an upcoming there is an upcoming trial weight has been has has been subpoenaed may have he can still meet with LSU within people. And if there's a question he doesn't like he can not answer it, fully or whatever. I mean, he could still meet he made a big mistake and is making a mistake every minute by not meeting with LSU end. Did he bring in? His constitutional rights and his state what does that have to do with this? And at the same time, he's breaking his contract with LSU clearly says you have to cooperate with some kind of an investigation and just mad the man if your boss wants to talk to you, you should go see him Wade's carrying himself. He's an employee on good terms. He's not an employee on good terms right now and has been for the last week. Let me go back over this story. First broke around the time of media days. And wait addressed it seemed like it that was that was a little different. That was another player that didn't end up. Okay. So different situation. Because some have said that maybe LSU should have done more. Then you're telling us that was that was it was it was a big picture, similar similarity. But it wasn't a specific. And it was still an offer being talked about you. You could see it that way. If you read that quote, but but it wasn't nearly as Pacific, but voluminous answer your question LSU did look into that way. I see that as they Wade have strike one. Okay. And they looked at it. And they were monitoring him. And then he got subpoenaed and then strike to. Okay. So. Back in October. Would it be fair to say LSU couldn't do whole lot more? They did not have the keys to that investigation. That was a federal investigation. I think that was a little too early. And actually, I've been told that Wade wasn't thoroughly honest with them at the time. He he was telling them at the time that that's it. And we found out since that there's more to okay. So the real caper really turned a week or two ago when I got subpoena. Exactly. Well, it turns somewhat when he got subpoenaed. But he still was the coach really turned this was this yahu revel revelation story because it was so dimming. Okay. And it the player on the team. Now, got it. Okay. It is really confusing. And if you're watching it from a distance, which most of are, and you're not it is it takes experts like you to keep. So you're guessing I understand correctly LSU has done about. All they can do up until now. Sure, I mean, they they're being blocked by their coach you won't meet with them. So they were really their hands were tied and suspending him. Now, if Wade would've met with him he still may have been suspend right, but he needed to give himself a chance and meet with them. And he stand into lose the rest of his salary in contract. If he doesn't change his his stance, and and meet with them because he's broken his contract by not discussing and say matters with them, and he could lose eight million ten million dollars. So it has to be a plan at some point. I realized that tournament's underway and LSU will play next Thursday or Friday, and at some point the leader continue honor they won't but what? What is what's the school going to do when this basketball season ends? Well, the school really wants to keep will wait all pop. Well, okay. I mean when it first happened they wanted to keep them because he's really popular. And I think that's the problem. I think Wade kind of thought he was bulletproof and they would never suspend him. But I mean, they may have to fire them. And then they may have to decide if they're going to keep Tony Benford or or if they're going to try to hire a new coach under the cloud of an upcoming NCA investigation, which they already did at the end of Dale Brown's tenure, which is why they hired Sanford coach named John Brady ended up being a good hire. He went to the final four, right, right? And went to the Sweet Sixteen very quickly. But it's hard to hire a coach under that cloud. So other than hiring the coach, and I realized that we maybe we're in a classroom here. But I am trying to understand this. Other than hiring a coach they gotta keep the players. They gotta keep flyers and they got to deal with potential is there any doubt there's going to be an investigation. Well, the as been in town all week in Baton Rouge. I I mean, I think they're already investigating. They haven't actually released they are whatever. But yeah, there's going to be an NCAA investigation. In terms of a lot of speculation, of course. And in terms of concern. Schools doing about all can do now. But where are they vulnerable? Well, LSU has a good record of its compliance office of being preemptive. And that's why they suspended Wade. Whereas other coaches haven't been suspended like Bruce Pearl and Shawn Miller LSU goes out of its way to get in bed with the NCAA to ensure they get the benefit of the doubt later on. And that's their stance right now. That's why suspended weight, and that's why I thought they would keep smart suspended, actually. But apparently they haven't found enough on him. Glenn always appreciate it. I know I felt like I was just. I was just going chapter and verse, but it's a complex case for those of us who don't live in Louisiana LSU. It's routine. Nice enough to spend some time with us. Mike white in the Florida Gators currently meeting with the media. Both you guys go through the play for the winning shot. Their Cook County. I believe you started the play with the drive from the wing, and then the kick so both you could just describe the place canton. Would you start that one place? I I was just driving and my scene is re. Komo Senator, and then I have to sheet sedan faceted Andrew he hit a big shot. I already knew hit it because you've been working hard every Sunday again. Coz way so conference glad and Indra. Originally that wasn't a play. We drew up onto a one three one. We had to scramble. It was good job. I can't say found me, and I had to let it go. So is happy went down for, sir. The questions for either the athletes. Let's go to the island the right side. This question is for Andrew Andrew coach wide has been talking you up so much ever since the get go. He's talked about how confident he is and your ability. So can you kind of describe how validating it is for you to be able to come through in the clutch for him in such a big gay? Very valid because we work we work together since June allow got here. He's he's helped team so much from where we started. And it's just great to finally get a win that we we deserve for him for the working poor. Rage. We're back here in certainly a very interesting conversation there with Glenn Gilboa. We just got through hearing the delirious, Florida Gators who have been the talk of the day. Meanwhile. We have a halftime score of thirty call South Carolina and Auburn right now the winner, of course gets. Florida. Let's get back to the call today. Five to four two seven two eight five and Augie is in New Orleans. Hello, good effort. India? Good afternoon. Paul and pretty good. Good interview. Right. Thank you very much. Well, anyway, you need to get Glenn. You have LSU sports. I don't think Raby suit good. I mean cleanse not not buddy de but he close. Anyway, Paul gotta say that LSU need to rebate after that game. If we paid anything we need to get some money back is that was not typical performance when the number one seed nasty regular season champs, but I going back to a couple of days ago. Seems like Joe Aleve is one of your topic on the show. I think he should be fired. But not because of this those guys did the right thing. I mean, I know guilty into proven innocent. But that Cape is like a guy in over a body smoking guts, I think they got no choice, but to keep weight that him home, Manny turned LSU basketball around. But ain't that we got. And we also got no luck against. Florida. Do you think will ever be Floridian anything? I mean eat. Guy every. But we got larva, and we can't beat them. I don't know what it is. I don't know if the quack schoolers jinks or something now used to be Tennessee all and you'll days we couldn't be anything. And now like Florida. So I don't know what we're gonna do. We gotta have some kind of blue or something. But as far as we'll wait, I think he's done. He's toes. I think he's made his own Betty landed. And as far as Joe leave it goes and the president of the school. They get what they had to do anything. Otherwise would have made us look like a bunch of clowns. So it was. No, you're right about whether whether you like lever not and I think, I know the. The prevailing wind of the vox populi is down in Louisiana. There's nothing else. He could have done and Glenn made a great point. Why couldn't we'll wait have gotten in his car? Go gun gone down there. And listen. Here's where I am. I can I can talk to you about this. I can't talk to you about that. I mean coming coming. Coming to coming with a it's attitude is is a good way to get fired. And that's exactly what's going to happen. Exactly. Paul should be fired in the question about why raise constitutional rights. Well, why do you think he's raised constitutional rights because he's guilty? I don't claim to be our constitutional expert. But there aren't any constitutional rights involved here. He he signed a contract. Work contract with LSU. And in that contract. He is obligated to participate. I mean constitutional issue would be he is he is being forced not to talk. There's no constitutional issue here. You're missing you're missing something or not not maybe looking you're looking past the point is we know which involved in its entirety of Gatien. We don't know if there may be some criminal involvement or something potential charge against weight. Well, anything he used the MTA brought against you. May you may have broken you may have broken the code there as you said it I thought of that and. Anytime. Someone is arrested. They are Morand dives with that means is they are told they have a right to an attorney. The court will provide one, you know, they don't have to anything they say can and will be used against them. And I think that may be what will wait is talking about. If I finally the bell went off their Augie. It will Wade cooperates with LSU. He helps himself short term some of zero game he helped for actually, but it could end up finding himself with criminal liability, by the way, he may already be a criminal liability standpoint. But I I will not say what I just got three things. I think he is referring to that part of his constitutional, right? Well, we'll again, I'm only small type lawyer criminal court Orleans parish. But tell you this there's more to this story than appears because he's not making his own legal counsel. You've got somebody advising, and if there's a potential or some other charges hanging out there to be dropped on anything. He tells the. You know criminal law better than than we do based on what you know. Do you think he is in the crosshairs with criminal liability with the feds will gutter one believe that he's talked? It was attorney and that his Turney has more of an idea if not the entire picture of what he faces and under those circumstances if I was his counsel. I would say you just don't talk to anybody yet. Let's see entire cases presented to whatever's presented if indicted they'll get to get through discovery. They'll get to find out everything the feds have against until that point. He is risking jail time possibly and his one to ten million dollar salary that may be giving up. He might be losing. Or after that. He could beat definitely a convicted felon down the line. So I think there's a lot more to the story and Bruce Pearl. Situation. And when people compare this to Hugh freeze, and Bobby Katrina, those are just personal conduct issues. It doesn't go to the essence of what the guys hired to do. And that is follow the law in the reds and the policies of the NCAA. It may not be federal guideline or a law, but they are the guidelines that he is bound to follow his a coach. And I think it's clear that he violated those and the people who say we need to see the entire case before we allow to coach I think that's crazy. I think if he was totally innocent has claiming to be he would have no doubt screaming and yelling and demanding to meet with LSU tell his story. His behavior is not indicative of innocent person. So I mean, I understand what we're facing here. As far as she's fans go, but disguised brought a big stain. I think one of the biggest scandals in the history of LSU sports. I mean, we complain about open. It looks like he's a decent guy and follows the rules and we complain about. Pulmonary because he was number one in the nation. Now, check those two guys seem to have a lot of integrity, and they don't do way. Did we got two good too fast? I don't think that's the reason it involved this wiretapping Wade made his own bed. So with that said, Paul not everybody down. Here's overlooking. The obvious. Well, said really agree with you ought to stay in touch. All right, burly, great guy. And I gotta say one thing buddy della Berta with turning over in his grave right now. This whole thing. You know, buddy. I didn't know him. Well, but I was huge fan from afar on the rare occasion that I was on his show. It was truly one of the honors of my life. Thank y'all. Great stuff. We are here at halftime of Carolina in auburn's all tied up. If you're joining us. The gator survive a last second shot numb hard by hard, Andrew heart. And he was here. Drenched in Gatorade. We'll be back with your phone calls in a number of guessing quitting the Commissioner of the SEC later on welcome back. We're music city and. I have a lot of people in the show. But rarely do. I interview somebody that I've been to see in concert and listen to. Phone and elsewhere, welcome to the program. Eddie Montgomery part of the. Famous hall of fame group. Montgomery gentry from Kentucky right to see. You. I'll tell you. And it's awesome. It's such honor to meet you, sir. Hang hang out with you. And I definitely won't say smoking hot wife back on. They're all watching the club. Earlier we hang out a little club Irvine, and we get your show on every day that I mentioned of the I'll say it because ever anyone who follows music, especially country music knows about the death of Troy your partner couple years ago. It was just a terrible tragedy. I met both of you at a benefit concert. You both come to Birmingham for the tornado in eleven and just hanging out with you guys before the show. Troy was such a nice man and together, you guys were unbelievable. We do pre shake that and say, you know, here SEC tournament baby. It don't get no better than that. Kentucky's plan. No doubt, you're going to be up in the in the rafters. Then I read in the local paper, you're playing the operator. The only thing. This year makes teen years T. Rowe has been. Opry members. And so when the opera cows, you know, I'm always there. And don't thing is we'll be back stage tonight with a map pad or phone or something, you know, we'll be going on time with cats are playing but to go nuts. Let me ask you about. I mean, I'm sure winning is number of wars. But being inducted invited into the opera has to be way up there. You know, my dad always he was a musician. And so was my mom. They always said, you know, you no matter. How many words you get you haven't made it in country music to you become a member of the grand offer. And it's I mean, it's such a such unreal family. And I tell you you just to to say we actually had t Roy's funeral at the at the Pery. All the opera members come out, you know, one big family. It's just awesome. It's kind of like family. You mentioned. Pretty much everyone in your family is a music, brother. Of course. Michael Montgomery, brother. John boys collie. So he's watching right now interviewed him once about about Kentucky. And I mean, other another credible musician in and on the self. The we grew up with Mike stands Whitman in our hands. So we actually is no joke. When we grew up. We didn't have living room furniture. We had music. So when you come in you sit down ramp or drum throne. So that's how we grew cookie basketball. When you started that I mean, obviously, you're probably not thinking in terms of making it big. Just love playing music. We were raised very very very poor. And you know, we had guitars and music, and when you played music people would come around, and we always done a lot of my dad and mom, of course, being t ROY did. Well, we've done a lot of tornado relief. You know because. Tornadoes through Kentucky. Flood relief and all that stuff like that. So we grew up meeting a lot of people and stuff and having parents as musicians who were your your musical influences. Well, we always you get your legends grew up on Charlie Daniels, Alabama. Waylon willie. But back at home in Lexington. There was nightclub pretty much lab music on every corner. So you really got to go in and you'd see the gas plan locally, and that's your heroes. Were you go like man, I want to play as good as him? I want to be on it stays because they were playing six nights a week. As your career developed, certainly I mean, I think you and your brother played the family members. And ultimately you hooked up with your about to be partner. How did that come together because you? It was actually. Back home me, and my brother had had a band together. And we sing t ROY and get to know one him. Wouldn't too much out of high school. So we we knew a club that needed a ban. And we put the band we went in there and we played six nights a week. And then John Dumbo become John, Michael Montgomery, and actually the drummer then and me and T. Rowe and like I said, we didn't a lot of benefit work back at home and every time somebody call one of us had called the other being t ROY. And we actually went nine called deuce. And then when we come to Nashville after so, many founders they kept going here comes in Montgomery, gentry boys and the name stuck. And you guys you guys. Starring cranking hits out. What's that? Like, I'll tell you. You know, Tom really does fly by when you're having fun. And when they told us that we was coming up on our twenty th year being t was like, and I mean, we just because we were road we stayed on the road all time, we live playing music, we love meeting people and hanging out and. You know? Twenty years and can't believe we done a twenty years greatest hits. And also had a new CD. Here's to you that actually just had finished couple days before the Riddick accident. So, you know, and so now we're back in the studio writing and getting ready to try to work on a solo project. Also. Reading about first time that you had to go out there without him. Probably tonight. It's just difficult. But that first time. I saw it. And it just had to be unbelievable. It was just been so used to looking for over thirty years to lift, you know, and having a buddy to lean on man, you know, a brother there and so. Yeah. It's different. I mean. I keep waiting because he was he had a big wooden spoon. And he loved the stirred up, and he was always practical joker. So keep waiting for me to go out and Mike follow for the cord. Come loose. You know, or the blow up never know what's going to happen. Talking to Eddie Montgomery of of the renowned group. Montgomery gentry. I want tonight you're playing you're playing the opera and Kentucky basketball is going on. So. Paying attention to the game. Oh, you bet. I tell you what if nothing else I'll have the monitor guy telling me, okay. So it's hard. I hope I don't forget no words because it'll be thinking about. Got to worry about that a little bit, and, you know, Alabama mi-, and I'll tell you, you know, anytime anybody plays Kentucky. It seems like it's it really is their championship gang. Yeah. I mean, they bring her best game. I always joke back. I'll watching basketball back at home. But man, they're just throwing up praying and it's going. I would think there would be confused because we've done that here where we're doing this show. There's a game going on. And by the way, this is a sitting job. It's not twirling. Microphones is not playing instrument is not trying to remember, however, many songs are doing a set. Yeah. I I tell you what this here. I mean, drowsy crazy man watching some tore up, and I get the screaming at the TV. So we'll have to when I'm when I'm watching down Kentucky basketball. But you know, we love it. And I know I know coach county and big fan of this stuff right here, man. But it's Kentucky people just come. And I mean, it's it's a c- a blue. And it's a eleventh man, we live our basketball, and I just love to see it. And it's unreal. When you get to see the guys live from TV. I mean, TV's great you sitting there because you have to replace all of wants and everything that man when she see it live how fast it really moves. And how tall the guys are. I've always wondered about that from a musical standpoint. I studio musicians are Perfecto, but. I've seen you guys live. And when you're doing your show live like something to be proud of it seems like it's different than it is in a studio. Well, the feeling of that song something proud of just such a great story that song is. It's just a real good buddy differ. Steel wrote it. I'll tell you. It's just one of them songs. We're proud Americans. You know, this is a greatest country in the world. We can say we can be and we can drink is because we won't to this great country. And we don't give it up enough for all of our great American heroes. And I wanna thank them because we have a beautiful place here. Manda hanging. What's basketball? When you're not when you're not in concert, and obviously talked about being a sports fan. Is there is there any? Best way to get away going playing playing golf doing something else. Away from it. I love I love watching sports. But I love Duckie, basketball and stuff. You know, that's to me. That's hanging around buddy bus. We're watching basketball don't get no better than that mantis. March madness look easy for them. Because I've always wondered. Yeah. It's one thing to be on television. And you don't after you get used to it. You don't think about it much? But there's another big difference in being up in front of. I don't know you've been twenty fifty. There's no telling how many people. Festivals? Now are there have over one hundred thousand people, and so you know, you get out there. You know, I still get nervous before ever shit takes me about two or three songs. And then I'm ready to rock. What what's the crossover point? I mean, obviously, you come up with a set list that you know, you got your settlers to stuff, but I tell you once you get out there. And once you hear all these people. We don't we never called anybody who call them friends, and we've been very blessed me and t to have a bunch of friends at their world. And when they get to sing and all your friends get to sing and back at you. Your sounds then manages. When they know the words better than you. Louder than you are and. Places. I'm not trying to put one over another because you played all over the country and all over the world. I mean, it was there ever that one place where you looked down? I can't believe it's kid from Kentucky standing right here. I still do that every time I get it doesn't matter where no matter where I'll do it tonight at the opera when I get there manage just to. The mother church of country music. And anytime, I get you don't stage and meet a bunch of different people saying you feed off that journal love it. I just you know, ate it read it and sleep. And so. I couldn't imagine doing anything else. So I want to keep doing it. People watch sports basketball and hanging out. What a pleasure you gotta get get ready for the show, and it is an honor for us to have you on. Great. Thank you for having me, man. Go big blue big blue. The one. In Elway Eddie Montgomery. The operator night right here in music city. We'll be right back. We're about an hour away from basketball inside the arena. Here in Nashville so offered in Florida move on. South Carolina, LSU, go home. But we have two more games tonight in the Commissioner of the SEC. Greg sankey? Has joined us here pretty amazing tournament so far. Thank you Commissioner that's going to be here. Thank you. I realize you just you observe and during the gains, but. The end of the before does your game was spectacular. And we just saw another game in two more than I want to go back to Wednesday and ask you about something because the first night of the tournament itself explanatory. But this year just seem there was four more buzz in that arena. And I want you to talk about what you and your staff did little bit late and walked out and said this biggest crowd we ever had on Wednesday. And it really goes back post expansion two guys who are part of our staff David night. Mark whitworth. They both moved onto other opportunities. We're talking about how do you track people on Wednesday night? So we started this general admission idea fifteen dollar tickets and brings in people who may not have ticket books anyone with a ticket book automatically has the winds ticket and we've seen that growth. So I think being back here having the level of basketball that we've had this year has attracted people both local. And then I think more of our like out of town said men, I can stay in Nashville for like four or five days. And that's really a big part of what we're trying to build. And I want to talk about where this tournament goes. Because last year we were in Saint Louis, and I think that was very understandable, Missouri coming to the league, and there are some other detours, but I don't work for chamber of commerce here. But people really like it here. They do. Staff. What happened was I spent an entire tournament. I think in two thousand twelve talking with the local folks the city the arena, the predators and the Sports Council about could we be here more frequently and what's amazing is they built this great convention center. And they already booked through twenty two twenty three and what that man is. We could play three men's tournaments here, and then have to leave because there was already a citywide convention book. So that's what's happened in eighteen weird say Louis, but it was a great opportunity to embrace, Missouri. Estate. In addition to the university of Missouri will be in Tampa and twenty two and then we've said this works really well for men's tournament. There's a buzz of feel and then you go back to the decision making time we'd lost some of that around men's basketball. But I think we've gained it back and maybe a little bit more. And there was a time. If you go back, I don't know came remember twenty twenty five years term was in Atlanta almost every year that that guy namic still in Atlanta quite a bit. But the storm has moved. Up here. So Tampa is at the only other one twenty two twenty two site, and then we'll be back here. And the Atlanta models are really really good one. So we've been there twenty five years in football two different stadiums. We've had our two highest attended SEC championship game since that very first one since Mercedes been stadium open, and that's a tradition. We'd like to see that same tradition here. We've seen that in baseball and Hoover fourteen thousand plus at our baseball championship game. We were in Greenville last week, which has been a great site. It's our second or third time actually since two thousand five in Greenville second out of three years. We have two more left to see if our fans will be attracted to a great city in Greenville, wonderful place. All of these ideas are how do you build momentum? So that fans want to be a part and stay and see the entire tournament asked me because scatter shoot we had a guest on earlier in the second hand we've had him on that. He's argued he's from Kentucky. He's argued for a a. A Saturday finish. And I talked to you about this in the past. And I I'm not going to answer my own question. But this game does so well television on Sunday. I know that may not be the only reason, but it is standalone watching John Calipari on the videos said here, and he said, I'm not big tournaments. But he's really good turn. Which is Ron John's raise that issue. Billy Donovan raise that issue several years ago being rest, especially if you play on Thursday, I was visiting with Rick Barnes in Dallas last year, and they played in Saint Louis on Thursday or on Sunday had some travel issues, and then we're in Dallas for a game first thing Thursday. So that's one of the factors on the other side. The TV ratings have been great if you're a fan, you watch the fans come in on Thursday, Thursday night, the crowds are bigger because people can spend three or four days if you shift it back my general admission nights now Tuesday, people who have jobs have to leave on Wednesday Thursday Friday and you finish on Saturday. So this is. Worked. Well, perhaps there's an opportunity in the future. I'd never say no to that idea. We've got some television issues subsidiary shoes. But we'll see I haven't live in a city that tournament from another conference start on Tuesday, and you could have rolled. Basketball up and down some of the stand not hit anyone. And I realized that it was a long turnament with a lot of schools, but it just seemed really early. It is. The previous week. The week before that. But again. It's really about seeing fans travel in. And so I'm a little protective of the Sunday opportunity. The TV rating has been really strong even in down basketball years relatively speaking for the conference, but the ability for people to be here over three or four day weekend has made some sense. And again, I I'd never say, no. But we'd have to go through evaluates the argument by some is that. If you win it on Saturday, you celebrated and on Sunday, everything changed pretty quickly to this election. Then our teams are trying to get back for the selection show John's point about what happens with your seeding. I've had that conversation with them right after the selection show and Saturday night a committee of time to adjust the committee tells me no they take into account every game. And there's a little bit of play in a bracket, but it's worked right now. And again, we'll we'll see what the future may hold especially as we come here on an annual base, the commissioners this. We'll talk about the prowess of this league which. Could again have eight schools. In the NCAA tournament. We're back with Commissioner Sankey after this.

We will get to your calls in a moment. Seven eight six four five six four eight three seven. But we've got a couple of questions from over over the last few days. First of all Ron. Thank you for joining us I did not know that the Albatross could fly for years without landing. That was a fact that someone gave us yesterday. Is it indeed a fact because I have a hard time believing. I'm not sure I know they can. They can certainly play for months but years. I would find that hard hard to believe. I don't think that is true I'm going to have to fact. Check that but my guess is it's not true They cannot fly for years and when they say what they may be saying they may not come come to land for years because they fly and they land on the water and they rest on the water They feed on fish in the water so they might not come to land for years until they're sexually sexually mature to nest again on that land so they may remain out at sea for years but they don't fly for years Josh. You're on with Ron McGill zoo Miami. Go ahead Josh go blue. What kind of ambled in Kremlin tree? The south what was that again. I kinda muffled go blue okay. Well what kind of animal. What what kind of animal can climate tree the fastest? Oh Jeez I mean that's hard to say okay but you know you're talking about and relative to its size. I would go with something like a squirrel but of course getting to the top of big tree the bigger animal like a leopard. Some of the big cats that are really a great tree. Climbers would be the fastest growing up tree. I mean a leopard is gonna go up a tree faster than a champion Orange Tan but really if you look relative to it's size look that's a squirrel gets up a tree. It's a squirrel. Man It's scrolls are so fast you know we're lying. Scoot fast fast twitch muscles JC. You're on with Ron McGill. Go Had things then they ron. I'm just curious. Are there any like unlikely. Animal pairs the hunt food together. And if so oh do they share the kill after they get thank you. That's a good question There are certainly some animals that depend on other animals to get food and once that food has gotten it and of course they will jump in Not that it's necessarily cooperative you know. For instance you have jackals that will follow lions. After they make a kill and they'll go in there and try to you know freeload some of that line kill and the lions at first of all almost tried to kill the jackals but after a while I've seen it many times in Africa where the jackals just allowed to come in and the line Kinda gets full and he says okay I don't care I'm not gonna it all this anyway. Of course the same thing goes with vultures. Vultures depend on other animals to make the kill. They don't make the kill with the animal So the question of making a kill with an animal cooperative operative speaking and and you know then eating it together. I can't think of anything like that You know probably happens in. The ocean with several species of sharks may go after financial but I think the initial kill is always made by by one particular animal and then other ones gang in after that initial start but they don't go out together and say hey. Listen I'm Mr Barrow. Let me get well you Mr Lyon. Let's get together. Maybe we can work together and go get this animal. That doesn't happen Ron dog smelling the butts of other dogs. What are they doing there? They just saying hello. No it's fair. RAMONES MOANS I mean. It's not just the butts. But it's the whole genital area because animals released fairmont's and that's how they identify themselves. Each one of those smells different for each one of the animals. So it's Kinda like they're calling card you know that's why when you see animals you know. Dogs for instance lift their legs spray. A little go to the next year. You know what you say to yourself. Well Heck you know when I go to the bathroom I just WanNa get it all out on done on But these dogs are constantly reserving scores here and there because it's a calling card that has all of their information on it and each one is different. So that's how they identified each other run. I recently adopted a puppy whose previous owners Kinda gave him up. So I've been told by my neighbors during the day. He's just barking and howling all day long and I think that he's dealing with like abandonment. Abandonment issues. What can I do so that he doesn't do that all day long? Well it's hard. You know what I try to tell. People usually get this problem when you go to sleep at night because I try to tell people all the time. You should always try to Kennel train your dog and by that I mean like when you go to bed at night you put the dog in a Kennel. That's how you kind of house train a dog Doc And that dog is GonNa how screen just like with human babies and I know I'm going to get a bunch of people screaming at me now but you know the same. No No. They're not they're not the same aim. Dan Don't try to lead me into this. Okay they're not the same but they are some things that are the same for instance you know. When our first baby was born he would be in his room and as soon as my my wife leaving even the crib and come into the room we start crying and I told her? Don't go in there because if you go in. Every time he cries he's GonNa learn that that's something that's going to get your attention so let them cry for a little wild. Go in. Don't take him out of the Cape Comeback Out that will go on for three or four nights and that's exactly what happened and then we were sleeping through the night and the month after baby was born It's the same thing with puppies. You GotTa let them cry and how the fact that you're gone all day that makes it a little more difficult so there's a separation anxiety I would try to get some kind of enrichment some kind of toys some kind of something that it can play with rip apart or whatever to kind of keep it occupied but eventually I promise you we'll get over that it will learn baby's due to learn to sleep through the night without something right next to them it. We'll adjust to you being at work. Anthony you're on with Ron McGill of zoo. Miami go ahead. Hey Ron I got a quick question. I'm a pool guy over here in central Florida and it seems that every real the week I get to a pool and there's some type of raccoon or wrote it that takes a crap on the top step every week. What is that? It's a raccoon man. RACCOONS Torius glorious for going to swimming pools because they love the first of all. You've heard the fact that like a wash their food but they don't necessarily like to wash the food they like to rub the food in the water and they do like the clean themselves in the water water and raccoons always loved to defecate around the water They're lucky they're doing it right on the side of the pool because many times they do it actually in the pool but raccoons are notorious for that uh-huh sometimes some of the big blue foe codes do that to The big marine toes. Come out at night they defecate and leave such a pile there. That people assume it's a bigger animal but those those toast can put out a big turnout gear man. That's a great sentence. Can you please put on the poll at Lebatardshow. Did you know that the raccoon is GonNa Poop in your pool. ooh because we learned something around here every week. I did not Nikki. You're on with. Ron McGill. Go ahead Hi Ron question for you. So there are such things as wild horses assist wild dogs that we find in nature animals that we've domesticated or they're such things as wild hamsters or wild Gerbil. So where would you even find them absolutely As a matter of fact I give you an interesting trivia question and you guys are GonNa enjoy this. I think it's it's okay for ESPN. There's something called the Shah's jured which is a type wild Gerbil These these these are found anywhere from Asia down into Africa depending on the species. There's hundreds of species of these quote unquote hamsters and Gerbils. But the Shaw's dirt is a Gerbil gerbils. Notorious for one type of thing. It has the record for the frequency of sexual intercourse in an hour. Once every fifteen seconds for an hour It's it's a very very interesting fact and You know something that you've all learned today Mitt. You're on with Ron McGill of zoo. Miami go head match Iran. I recently Greta Desmond article challenging readers to try and catch the Doggie Doo Doo in the plastic bag before it hits the ground. How traumatizing with this beat on my dog? Should I try it. You know I wouldn't try it Only because it's part of dogs natural behavior. He's trying to leave a mark there and if he sees you're like you you know you're not even letting it hit the ground. It's one thing if you let it hit the ground even when you pick it up it does leave the sent behind so other dogs can pick it up Plus you know I just personally speaking and I just wouldn't want someone there with a bag on my butt is. I'm trying to do that. Just leave me do that piece and then you can clean it up afterwards. That's just my personal opinion. Yeah probably everybody's Lewis you're on Ron. With Ron McGill zoo Miami. Go ahead Carl. Okay I you. I only love you when you do what I want. I think my dog lives by this creed creed does my daughter really love me or does it want me to just feed it. Well you dog training. Your dog really loves you but you dog is training. It's like you is your kids you know. Are you with your nephews. Whatever youngsters there in your family Listen if if if they know they can do something to get what they want all the time. They're going to do it and if they I don't get it after they've tried to do it and you don't give it to them. They're going to be upset. They're GONNA be mad. You ever have a kid look at you a kid that your own kid. I've had my own kid. Let me go I hate you hate. You hate the fact back to the not getting their way. Don't let the animal train. You train the animals but I'm saying wrong dogs and kids the same. We end the segment every week by going to the video. And having Ron Miguel do play by play on whatever the animal video is what do you have in front of you today. Right okay Let's see play. Oh we got a bunch of BS on top of a bottle of some some sort of a bunch of beef has got something sweet and I bought it because they're naturally attracted to sugar but they can't get it. Oh well wait a minute wait a minute. They're working together. They're pumping the wings and they're going to get that top up they unscrew scrutiny. No no working together remember. This is a cooperative species the bees. It's honey it's Tony. It's a it's a thing of honey and the bees got the top off because of that working together. This is something that we carl learn from. I save every week guys. Let's watch animals. Let's learn how they we all live together. How they coexist have they work cooperatively? There's so many lessons in the animal kingdom that we need to learn. God I love this segment. I have singers. I could do that by myself. You later Ron Thank you for your cynicism board bumped for some ads important time time for you to come in and say that you could do the same thing that a team of bees dip bit overrated though because they just got one of the top and they realize there's Oh there's still another topic to be these are all right.

The show at Lebatardshow charge does writing in. I have been a listener for ten years is. ESPN pushing you to talk XFL. No one cares about Dan that that Dan aren't you supposed to be an anarchist lately. You're just another Mike Greenberg. It's horrible Hashtag sellout keys then that no one has told me to talk about the XFL. I can't furthermore feels like Dan's going out of his way to crap on what is still football. You're still good quality. Football Exciting Fun Games. 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. I'm working there's crispy and then there's crispy try our new and improved Tyson crispy chicken strips crispy just got crispy Donlevatar Donlevatar a rubber stugatz and also remember these these I live at our show with Stugotz on.

And I need to understand whether or not Joe Borough and LSU would beat the best ex F. L. team so we are going to try and get an answer to this this segment we start with ESPN dailies are football correspondent. You could check out our podcast. SPN daily meantime 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 it was. It was the same take repeated five times it was the same joke. Learned what I think. We can all agree to what I want that group debate. Mike you're on. ESPN radio who wins LSU XFL IN DALLAS. You would probably win because they have more time together you go john attend and you're on. Espn Radio Jonathan. Go ahead let me ask you this question can't Lsu go for US three pointer after they scored a touchdown. Frank you're on. ESPN radio go ahead. Frank Yeah Hey forget about the XFL was slash. What else was Bowie with his own mother or was he what slashes mother? It's a good question and David Bowie was with his own mother all right. Let's slow down for a second here and it is a great question but it might not have a place for someone who wasn't listening ten minutes ago so we might want to explain to people a few more of the the details on. Why it is David Bowie posthumously? Now we are well. No this was not a dead date. Doing this was not necrophilia. Okay that took a dark turn. What do we have in terms of information on the I? I'm trying to slash stumbled upon David Bowie while while he was alive with slashes mother. That's not what people were saying it was slashes mom. It wasn't David always always pedophilia. I made it Necrophilia UMEDA. Pedophilia WHOA I am. I still hot by the way. The clashes mother holy smokes. I encourage everyone is listening to Google. Hudson look I don't now I make money moves an absurd place for me. Times is to accidentally ask the question. Am I hot am I hot. Yoga inappropriate appropriate timing and now another addition of obvious news from GEICO experts. Now say that wearing more clothes in the winter will in fact help you be warmer. We asked cold called victim. Trent Patterson about this. And here's what he said was the weirdest thing I was a little cold put on a sweater then wasn't cold. Like what also an obvious news gyco makes makes it easy to save money and easy to reach them with licensed agents available around the clock so switching is a really smart decision. That's obvious news from GEICO awesome tar. Oh Schwab stugatz much slum. Oh this is the Dan Le Batard show with two guys on. Espn Radio Oh tune into ESPN daily. podcast bring you a deep dive into a single-story from one of ESPN's hundreds of reporters presented by Adt Download Subscribing Review Espn daily available. Wherever you enjoy your podcasts we will get to the polls in the second at Lebatardshow but Billy Gill? Our Own Guillermo has announced to everyone in this room that he knows how to fix the dunk competition. Yeah Yeah Dunk. Competition and that Stugatz was blasting earlier. Chris Cody was saying that Vince Carter's a dunk overrated just a blasphemous dunk contest conversation. Just the one where he puts his elbow in other ones are very good overrated. Abon Room Dan we save the dunk contest. That's what it is. I mean if if if the NBA wants to play ball and take our suggestions you want to hear what they are. I'll give them to you whether you like it or not. Well I ask for them. Now you've talked without giving it to us and that's about forty forty words that we didn't need here so I could just get your idea because I did ask for it so you do want it all right. This is what we do I feel like the dunk contest moving being forced to guys. You're also there's a new one in here to the oven. Heard yet wrinkle proposal number one one or two slots their wildcard slots and and you just have people who are not in the NBA competing in the dunk contest. Because that's where you see. All the good dunks is on Youtube and online. So you have some of those guys come in here and girls you have some all of them come in and participate in the dunk contest and then they start up staging the NBA players. They don't want that Dan. Obviously there's going to have to be some monetary prize for Joe's Joe's versus pros. Wow you're in pros vs Joes. It's a pretty good idea right to see some guys off the street Amtrak not professional basketball players lawyers for probably better dunkers going up again. I would like sort of a wild card. I think. Didn't they have some sort of show recently where they did Off of the in Westminster dog show where they had classically trained baby seals dogs. They were dogs that were military trained dogs and then they got one dog that wasn't military retrained at all. There was just some random dog off the street and they know they didn't dunk. This is another thing all right. Here's my second suggestion. Ready No have on on the jumbotron almost like a slot machine type thing where someone pulls a lever and it's just like I took it and then what happens great question. Dan a youtube video of someone doing crazy dunk and they have to replicate it. So you're being told what cool dunk you have to do. And you can't prepare for it so you a wire Roy and like you're you sound very excited about this but Roy and Mike. Are you just tired of hearing him. Talk yes I'm I'm exhausted. Because is you've got these layers to fixing the game where you could have just said Joe's versus private. He's fixed it. Yeah I think we're good. Thank you add lebatardshow on twitter. The two of you can go sit in the penalty Bala the guy both of you deserve a better. Have you guys been oppressed via the rule changes and the Big Three League. Yeah the big. Three's share yeah well they have a thing that I'd like to see in the NBA. They have a challenge that you can use once once per half where you can challenge foul and the way that you challenge. It is sort of like Baldo rules like okay one on one. I challenged the foul. There you could it. It could be a total like absolute intentional. Hack but you have one challenge and instead of the person going to the line or just getting points you play one one on one defense against them everyone clears out so you just call them out. And I'm like no you one on one like a dual. Yeah Yeah it's pretty cool Can you just explain to me in terms of the mechanics of the show. I feel like both of you. The more that billion Chris talked that you to your souls were sucked Oct- until you're grayer than Max Kellerman with all the soul-sucking he's had do against Stephen a Smith like I feel like you guys were totally defeated by their dunk Contributions contributions no. That really wasn't about that it's been a long show and it's it's hard getting a bunch of people on the line and dealing with tax and just you know executive stuff but yeah also him talking exhausting effort. You just never know when it's GonNa End Chit Looking someone explained to me. They'll like why he hasn't gotten any better in radio. It's sort of you know. He wants a career in this and he was saying before you know that he was going to take the stugatz route. The Stu gods route to glory can't be Yam simmering that much everything's got to three prongs nothing as an idea comes out clean lane. At a thing he goes long. We get annoyed by it and if we ever change change and people stop liking us Dan okay so at lebatardshow really no one like witter but your point is a good one because I keep telling them like you want to take the stugatz route. I work can very small windows not good and small windows. Man It's just take over the show Yama Yama Yam or two pronged. Three pronged approach broke. He's not getting a big windows eater. No He's not going to any windows fair enough at Lebatardshow. Oh is where you go if you vote on the polls. Today's too. I WANNA go back actually actually to a very important poll from a couple of days ago because they know Mike Spin awaiting the outcome here. Well the name Kevin Gilbride make you laugh or attorney pretty good one sixty percent of the audience. This has been up since February tenth. Mike Sixty percent of the audience said yes. Not Enough I expected did it to be higher. It's great it's just forty percent of people not knowing Kevin Gilbert ignorant just rampant you say tuned to the XFL watch snoring Oughta make you know his football Guardian Kevin Gilbride New York guards say my name who is more relevant to open up the cats that shipping container or the Dolphins Offensive Law doing that tomorrow.

Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock

OBJ + LSU, Antonio Brown, Tyreek Hill, Drew Pearson, Carroll + Wilson

"Hey Yeah Jimmy here when you speak for yourself you're forced to think for yourself and when you think for yourself the sports world looks in order to enjoy this podcast and this show. You need to have the courage to look at the world from alternative points of view and not be offended when you disagree speak for yourself. Isn't your twitter facebook instagram feet. SF Y tells you what you need to hear and not what you want. So welcome aboard buckle love and enjoyed we start New Orleans all right. Let's resist the temptation to turn Odell Beckham junior into a victim. Today New Orleans is police issued an arrest warrant for the wide receiver Apres Superdome. Security Guard filed a simple battery complaint against Beckham video captured Beckham slapping slapping the security guard on the but in the Lsu Post Game Locker Room. Monday night the battery. Complaints seems like a petty overreaction unless you understand the context context the battery complaint is connected to the massive headache Beckham has calls. LSU officials head coach at order on Lsu fans and the entire SEC ABC before slapping security guard on the but Beckham spent the immediate moments after Lsu completed its route of Clinton handing out wads of cash to Lsu. Players is on the field. This too was captured on video on Tuesday. LSU claimed Beckham passed out. Fake cast yesterday after quarterback Joe Borough admitted or or any podcast interview the money was real unless you reverse course and acknowledged that it was investigating Beckham's actions they issued a statement saying we are aware of the situation regarding Odell L. Beckham junior interacting with LSU student athletes and others unaffiliated with the team following the championship. Game Monday night. Initial information suggested the bills. That were exchanged aims were nominally. Bills Information and footage reviewed since shows apparent cash may also have been given to LSU student athletes we were in contact with the NCWA and the SEC. Amini upon learning of this situation and with some of our student athletes may have been placed in a compromising position we are working with our student athletes the NC double a. and the S. E. C. in order to rectify the situation. Today's arrest warrant in my opinion is payback for all the trouble. Trouble Beckham has stirred up for LSU in the SEC. Everybody knows the deal in major college football and basketball. The elite schools in the elite players get hooked up by boosters alums Lum's Beckham just needlessly put his alma mater in the NCW crosshairs all because he wanted to promote LBJ Beckham Pity Mayes the virus spreading within thin sports culture. A growing number of high pro- Ath- athletes have abandoned any pretence to being role models in pursuit of being influencers. As I explained earlier this week there is a significant difference between being a role model and influence a role model attempts to model public behavior to be emulated by young people and influencers. The goal is to develop a large following by any means necessary and influence that following into buying commercial products. Walter Payton aspire to be a Role Model L. O.. BJ ASPIRES TO BE KIM Kardashian. Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. He hasn't released a sex tape yet. But it's only a matter of time. He's obsessed with. Hey look could be stunts that enhance his social media brand over Jay is a self serving agent chaos whose lone mission in life is the promotional. BJ He is not alone alone. Antonio Brown suffers the exact same disease. Sodas Colin Kaepernick is Beckham's form of social media influence or chaos as bad as browns and caps. No Brown is sociopathic and cap is using police brutality to sell nikes but Brown and capper no longer on. NFL teams my point. On Beckham income is his influence or addiction. MAKES HIM A really bad fit for team. Sports Beckham's influence makes it extremely hard to build a winning culture. He's Terrel Owens on social social media steroids your best player. The player with the most influence on the locker room can't contradict values taught by the coaching staff team sports or about sacrificing adviser for the man or woman next to you there about elevating the people you work with and subjugating your individual ego for the greater good of the team team sports are about shared goals. I shared experiences shared values the one hundred or so players on that. Lsu team the twenty or so coaches the team of administrators trainers and support staff. I've worked all year to win a national championship while they were doing the work to win a national title. Ob Jay was helping the Cleveland Browns underachieve and miss the playoffs Monday Sunday night wasn't about Odell Beckham. Junior Chieveley hijack the event and made it about him. It's literally the most Selfish Act. I've seen in sport put I. Don't blame people in Louisiana for seeking payback. LSU should banning from its campus in the Cleveland. Browns should dump Oh. BJ and rid their locker room of his. His influence are joining the death. Now Fox sports. NFL analyst Mark Slayer and Bucky Brooks Marcellus. Get US rolling. Yeah what should LSU do about Odell L. Beckham Julia. Oh what should happen in this episode of Dumb and dumber which is just dumped a slap a security guard on his butt and is dumber to even bring up criminal criminal charges for that same slap. You should take notice the NFL's doing and this approach with Ab. which is slow is the way to go? Let something something else let the system judicial system in ABC's case or NCWA and Lsu's case actually set the ruling before you actually go out there and set the ruling remember when you're trying to team build and Lsu and this perfect season would deem everything outside that teeing seen those players is outside noise that includes Odell Beckham in this situation right now. That's outside noise. He didn't have impact on the game. He's not a teammate. And these guys are in a world that's going to change. If they achieve their goals the rules will change everything that we are now. Criticizing will turn and flip into being something that is perfectly define legal and ethical but right now there's no message that's going to be learned by you being fast to a judgment or penalty Odell and there's nothing that these players are going to be able to absorb because they're in a different world didn't Odell so just because of those circumstances. I just say Paul's for the cost when this comes to out do not believe that. Lsu should disassociate themselves with ob J.. He does need a stern talking to he has to understand any can't put Lsu you and compromising situations with behavior and what he did on Monday night at a game. He certainly did that but he is too. Valuable to the university to the football program. Ram as a recruiting tool to completely ostracized from the program. When you go to these high school football camps and you talk to young receivers Obi Jay Jay is a guy that they aspire to be? He is the one that they look up to. So you still have to have him around the program you still want to benefit from his hero status his icon con status. But he has to know that. You can't put the bigger Brandon Jeffrey. I would say this if I was. LSU I would have a meeting with with Odell Beckham Junior and the powers that be at Lsu and say if you act like a moron and that's what you acted like on Monday night then. You're not I'm going to be allowed to be around our program. That's the bottom line. We want you to be a part of our program. But if you're going to act like a fool and you've got that kind of to me the premeditated portion of putting a stack of high society in your pocket and traveling around. Get yourself your or attention. Because that's what that is that to me is wrong if you WANNA celebrate with those kids and celebrate championship. I don't have a problem with you celebrating championship pitcher but that was celebrating your brand and I've strongly feel that. That's that's what went down there so I would have to have a conversation with him if you want to act like an adult. You WanNa. It'll be a great role model and you want to help these kids. Get the next level. I'm all for that. But Hey listen just because there are problems with the structure of the NCAA okay and there are. There are plenty of problems with that. That does not make what he did right. It's not and so those was the conversations I would have because I'm with you man. He say whatever you want kids aspire to him. I mean they gravitate whatever to a lot of things I I understand. I understand that but things. That aren't Gopher I WANNA go cut deeper on why this is serious and why this is the state of Louisiana and people in power our. They're taking action against Odell Beckham Junior. You can blame the security guard all you want. It ain't him. This man is put everybody in jeopardy. We all know the deal with big. Tom Elite Sports. We know what all the way down to the mid American conference level where I played at people help these kids in ways that they can and there are are people that really had something to do with that great. Lsu Team in what they accomplished and they don't want the NC Double A.. nosing around asking a bunch of questions and that may create a trail to them because people have gone to jail recently. Moreover this the Adidas trial people we'll have just prosecutors have used these. NCWA rules to come up with some bogus charges to make people felons over violating relating NCWA. AMATEURISM rules all. BJ In his stupidity has put a lot of people in jeopardy. And that's why they need to disassociate associated he's not bigger than Lsu he's not so important to LSU football that they can't survive without him they have far more wealthier alums they they have far. More people were responsible for the recruits in the players. That they have which you don't want to set off what he has set off a bunch of. NCWA the people in the media and everybody else. Well let's go through. LSU with a fine tooth comb. There are people in power there in Louisiana that invested in and his team and in this program. That don't want any parts of that and this do we can't just look the other way because this dude is this year responsible this self absorb for this stupid. Yeah Shamo you'll Bj for your selfishness for now shining. A light on all the legalities were actually committing down here right now. We just want to keep the status quoque which is hey. LBJ You bring in the fans down here. Look I'll be guilty of this as we say in a lock. He was on one he got lost in the sauce. Whatever he was doing oh and he went to the degree? But it's funny when we talk about him and his self serving nature and attention seeking that a lot. The headlines are being made of him equipment the entire team with headphones. Illegal way the right way he sits down beats by dre three hundred fifty dollars value to everybody the Lsu affiliated and then he got in the moment and realized they were doing something that he's never seen before his family any went overboard guilty guilty guilty but this whole notion that ob Jay's going to be held to a standard at people in normal society are not going to be held to this whole role model versus influencers. That's it's absurd because role we used to say. Yesterday's athletes were role models they were just mislabeled. They were just under served and underpaid influences at at the time I didn't have the platform properly like Oh. BJ Does Right now oh. BJ shouldn't be held to any higher standard. Then we are then your neighbors are and it's funny. When we we say athlete in trouble we blow it up out of proportion even though all the statistics? Say Your neighbor or you if four ties more criminal than any pro athlete about criminality about Lsu just get charged again. That's a small detail. This man has caused his university of major headache. They work in the NC Double A.. System whether we like it or not I've got years invested in pointing out the fraudulent and doing major journalism on the fraudulous of of amateurism. I'm against amateurism. This ain't the way to go. I say this this isn't a he's nobody should ever want to be this kind of a headache to. They're all modern are their football team. And you can't Ah Iran none of the people involved with Lsu that actually put the work in our happy today that we're talking about Oh BJ did we're talking about NCWA investigation that they're doing an investigation. Who wants this? Nobody does. And it's all in Brazil huge. ooh Okay I thought you were going to. You're making this bigger than it is right now. A headache can go away. This situation can go away. You don't know what the ruling Gift Gift Right now. There's a criminal charge if I'm Jay. That's a headache for me. That's a major thing to deal with. It's GonNa it could be six months of jail for Welby. Jay was charged with a thousand dollar. Fine what else shoe is investigating could come back to be a slap on the wrist. There was the conversation. We don't know that but we have to go through that process. That's why I started off. Arguments slow played. I don't wish but let's say it's a slap on the wrist that that's the penalty. I don't WanNa slap on the wrist because O B J did something stupid. I don't WanNa be holding a bunch of meetings media went. NCW investigators because Oh BJ did something stupid that everybody knows you don't do do if he'd done something unintentionally I get it here. Here's here's the deal for me like I had talked about this. Got A lot of pushback about taking taking taking the shine off the kids who put in the war all the coaches who put in the work you take off the shine and you make it about you and people like those kids. Were celebrating with him. That's fine you're still getting shine to you but now you've put shine to the organization to the to Lsu. We should be talking about about how great a football team this was we. Yeah I know I know we have that choice. But you know what's in the new cycle and we didn't write the news. Oh you didn't well interesting what we choose to be well into new side one hundred hundred percent right on that when when it's one hundred dollar bills that you know that's not appropriate and then it's a slap on the butt of a security guard like I don't care if it's a security guard a police officer I don't care who it is You're not allowed to put your hands on people and we did things in a locker room environment like we did things in the locker room violently completely inappropriate and all of us did because that's the locker room environment but you know what when I walk out of that Locker Room Environment. I don't take it to the grocery store with me. I don't yeah because I know better so I'm just saying being adult and tonight a look there's a level of immaturity that is around Obi J. that none of us would appreciate and I would say though. LSU can necessarily have it both ways they they can't celebrate one of the biggest football stores celebrities. Did the program has produced and then having cast. What he did was stupid and irresponsible? Everyone I can sit here and amid that however Lsu cannot completely separate themselves from it because they've also benefited from historical benefited from his relationship. With Nike. I as you talked about him outfitting them with beats they also were. Ob J. Clean and they add them on. Its to speak. He's sitting here like I don't WanNa talk player. San Coaches basically forcing him to speak. If you want to shine but sometimes it's too bright and it goes no different than like the police athletically down in Hollywood Florida one of the donation for maybe until the moment they did until they was like. Hey this ain't worth the headache this thing worth the trouble. LSU has that right with Ob. Jay We're talking about something getting very simple i. I don't know what I don't have kids. y'All do whatever. The simplest instruction is for your kids and then they violated and you. Are you kidding me. I just told you don't do that and you did. It was that simple. This man is an adult. He knew exactly what he was doing. He was there to promote. Oh BJ and he doesn't care that again as Lsu has stated put our players in a compromised position who who does that. And who defends that and WHO I. They don't want it. It's a headache. I just couldn't imagine me he doing something intentionally to hurt my alma mater my high school or college my church people that have taken care of me and that I'm a part of their brand into whatever I just couldn't imagine doing something that intentional to promote myself. That hurts them. This is this is the most selfish act I've seen in sports. And if he's so removed from reality and so unpredictable if I'm Lsu. I take a step back from from. Obgyn what does that mean materials. That will you mean I think lovie Jay. We don't want you on our side lines we don't want brings. You don't have to give us no more money we're good. Ob LBJ thanks. We'll check back with you a year from now I just violation here absolutely. You started this by saying you. Don't you'll have kids and I think that you realize when you have kids it's not that simple you don't just you violate okay. Here's penalty miss. Move on there's a self correction there there's a maturation ration- growing pains. That occur. Do any situation even in violation. You don't sit there and say thirty years old we keep seeing a pattern of hey looking looking. Lsu has seen a pattern or human ob Jay. Everybody sees the pattern with Jay. And the hey look man is watching playing football so you do the patriots this themselves meddling. PD's leading the League in drops jumping on cars when you buy or you think they're going to say you know what I understand this right as it goes to football. It goes to element. No one can. Argue is not part of a winning Culture Sir people can make that argument about Oh. BJ and so as a release of the browns are the Patriots. Or whatever it's about you contribute to a winning culture people could make the argument Alman does Oh. BJ does as it relates to wherever adamant did play State Years Either quarterback here to play against. He hasn't done anything to to put Kansas state in a bad light. You say any organization. He's certainly done it to the New England Patriots on and off the field of late. So here's my thing when you look at these violations I'm not saying he's not wrong O. D. O. B. J. is wrong. I just arguing a different severity of penalty because I have to weigh the positives lives with the negatives. I'm not doing the baby with the bathwater. Everybody has to taxes and yet not everybody feels comfortable comfortable. Doing taxes was doesn't seem right especially when you consider all the amazing things these same people accomplish every day of their lives. Turbo tax believes that that the right tools and encouragement people can be good at anything yes even taxes and to help people feel more comfortable with the tax process. Turbo tax next live gives you personal access to experience. CPA's and EA's who are there for you even on nights and weekends and they're happy to go through your return with your line by line to double check that you've done everything right so you can be sure to get your best possible refund and one hundred percent confident in your taxes turbo tax all people are tax. Breaks back with us. We're joined by former. NFL Head Coach Jeff Fisher time for a big story sponsored by. KFC's three dollar famous bull. Try it spicy. All right let's move Antonio Brown who made waves this week. Posted a profane. Oh fame and racist tirade against police and the mother of his children on Instagram. The backlashes continued today with Brown's agent drew Rosenhaus and Brown's attorney both reportedly terminating their relationship with the receiver. All right Do we think through Rosen. Houses decision. Think this will help help Antonio Brown no unfortunately no a Lotta Times players even get lost in that the agents worked for the players so so basically. If you're an employee comes up to you and quits. Does that really changed you. Have you hit. Rock bottom is that now a new moment of clarity. I think this is a necessary step in terms of the NFL. Saying you're going to be employed by us. You need to get help. But when you're agent dismisses you conditionally anything your reality changes because one time I said if I could get another agent but to this. Isn't the rock bottom. This isn't the point where we're going to see. A difference in behavior may be so I say no look. I think it hurts him because he needs an advocate. I think. ABC's an advocate if he has any opportunity -tunities you get into the national football. The he's going to have to have someone that can have those conversations with execs that he can't have someone is going to have to Kinda smooth the path to give him an opportunity to get back into league without an agent without council. He doesn't have that opportunity he can't speak for himself. We've seen on I g post and all the other stuff. It doesn't represent himself very well so he needs someone who can be that advocate and without Rosenhaus so any other representative let me go. Bucky is getting back into the NFL. The A help at ABC needs no. He needs serious serious hill so seriously help there. That's why roles announces stepping away. I'll take a different issue with Rosenhaus. Step away because like when we talk about family and the agent comes to your house and he talks about. I'm going to be there for you. I'm GONNA help you accomplish all of these dreams. What I'm seeing from on the outside? It appears as soon as A. B. can't do anything for me. I'm stepping off if drew was really an advocate for AB. He would try and ensure it he got the help before even worried about the league. So I'm more worried about him. Jumping off right now because it doesn't appear to me that he really cares for. Its client see we true Rosenhaus. The House has been through it over the years. I mean he's been front and center with the law of let's say issues or some things that have come up with respect to his clients. It's but but right now as book as you say the business side is over okay. There's nothing for drew. There's no way he's going to benefit from anything in his is mind so the business relationships over but what about that other relationship going in the living room taking care of your client. That's over as well so this this is this may be what ab needed. But I think as an hope you guys agree with me. There's more to this than that. This this is a mental health issue. Okay the last time I was here we were talking about. His feet. Were burned because acquire therapy and remember all the stuff that lead up to that and then after that and then the New England and then this is a mental health issue and Andrew would probably argue that he is a a mental health therapist and probably probably I would say so inclined to handle that because of his experience but this needs to go to professional and this kid needs some some help. Jeff I think you make a good point in terms of drew Rosenhaus I think was terra. Loans's agent when Tara Owens was involved in a lot of high profile incidents and that's that's what I think is so fascinating here is i. I don't think I remember Rosenhaus stepping away from a client in this kind of trouble and that's I think. I don't think it's going to be effective but I do think he's trying to shake up someone who's having perhaps mental issues hot perhaps chemical self medicating issues. I don't know but if you look at his behavior it's not the behavior of a rational person. And so I think drew Rosenhaus at argue and I've been a critic drew Rosenhaus but I'm under defend him. I think he is here. is trying to pull the rug out from underneath breath Antonio to get him to hit rock bottom so that he is open to somebody coming in and helping him with his mental or chemical local issues. I'm not believing it. I think it's disingenuous. Let's be real about it. I not representing you conditionally. You need to go get help. Conditionally drew represented him all the way through even in November when you had a workout with Seattle even in December when he went to New Orleans and kick the tires and you're trying to tell me to ab today is in the different place in assessment and he was just a month ago. Not For me. He did another thing for video. Radio that gables more ammunition but it didn't change what I knew that ab needed which was some mental health new dead in November and December drew. You knew a better than idea because you're with him so it's interesting that condition basically means get help and once you get help you probably get back and leave and he can get some of that money. Wait a minute what are you here for a fullness. If you're my agent I understand you're GONNA get your three percent percents. I'm really top tier but this time as you said Bucky really it kind of rubs me the wrong way because it means that he doesn't completely care about. AB The person. This is an issue. I had the conversation with Chris Long in the last. I ten days with respect to mental health. WHO's GonNa who's GonNa take the position which WHO's going to be the resource? Where are you going to go to the players Players Association? They're not going to touch it. They're not going to help. Okay you can go the management council an NFL in the clubs. They're not gonNA touch it. I know that that's been around this business for a long long time. Mental health is a neglected aspect especially as it relates to former players. That need it but it's neglected and no one wants to touch it and there's a need for it and again if Antonio's sitting out there. I'm not saying that you got problems. I'm just saying that all things are pointing to the fact that maybe you do need to sit down and talk to somebody knows what they're talking about because there's issues here here and if you're that great of a player believe me the National Football League and Agents and the Players Association they'll look past it but no one's looking passes asas right now so maybe this is step that this the sport and the industry needs to take take take taking move for the last segment you did about the Lsu stuff and doubt I mean unfortunately these are stories. You know this is. What's captivating your time? I thought before I walked up here I go. You know what excerpts from what you guys just talked about so eloquently with respect to LSU audio are GonNa be shown to players in next year's training camp of how not to do things a why because your actions are going to create these problems uh-huh and we're trying to help you and so they're just not resources out there is and so in in saying that we talk about resources him needing help I would just like to think that your age the guy who has said in your home and did do all the recruiting process that we had to deal with when it came to picking agent that at some point he he would have their hard conversation and he was ranked Ab somewhere. We could get some help and attention as opposed to stepping away from it and leaving them to fend for himself and Bucky. I think and just having some foul put my family business out here on the street but again when you start dealing with these issues where people are hard hard to corral your real hard corral and then when you and again you talk about Family Momma. Daddy can't corral them uncles. Aunts Grandma McCain corrupt agent. I'm and so and I understand that you know. He's made a lot of money with a B but but I it again I've been a critic. Drew Rosenhaus a harsh critic. I'm not a big fan but I think what he may be trying to do here is he's tried got everything else. He's probably tried to drag him. And so maybe he's saying aby all you want to get back in football while I'm I'm not going to help you until you correct these issues issues here mentally because I'm more concerned about you as a human being that. I'm a football player. So let me be part of the process of removing football away. Because I'm your conduit to get back back into the NFL. I'm going to take that away because you need to focus on A. B. and I think that's a reasonable conclusion for somebody that watched that video of him outside his house talking that way in front of his young kids to his baby mamas to their mother and two that police were. I can't I don't I'm not sure if I were in the same conclusion as drew Rosenhaus. AB is bad for business right now. Let's just be real about that. Injury Rosenhaus is is taking the League of the Hollywood POW Athletic League and saying. Let me disassociate as well. Because either I say if I'm Ju- Rosenhaus I'm taking to help or we don't need to work together ever again. Because guess what drew he came from rock nation to you so Juneau's the whole scope of this conditional like go fix yourself come back and now your football player again. We work together game forgetting about the player. Love your point. Coach athletes take so much care of their physical health and totally neglect neglect their mental health. And there are resources but just like all aw resources it's a two way street. You have to go out and read for and usually is there to receive. We're joined now by I former. NFL Offensive Lineman rich or burger moved to Kansas City where the chiefs host the Titan in the AFC championship game. Sunday Tennessee has been rolling and just shutdown Alamar Jackson but now they're up against the most explosive offense in the league and Tyreek Hill. Sounds pretty confident that the chiefs receivers can't be stopped. I feel like nobody in NFL Cam Gore. Any of us. I mean and that's no disrespect. Nobody there's just a confidence that I got. I mean and myself in the White House I got around around me including two tight ends in bed. I feel like no. DB UNION NO Secondary Unit. No linebacker or any defense can any of us so man and manages easy for has to be and if you just allow us to to just run through owns is even easier so you like that problem with tyreek Hill on this this one. You can't say anything to a team that's about the plan the AFC championship game to motivate them more. It has nowhere to Lan Dan. No Bulletin Board material. This has no place to land in their psyche as they're already fully motivated now. I love the fact that he's he's actually speaking truth and matter of fact he's like look. We played these last time. I had a career high catches a season high in yards. And if you look at at our group as a collective they don't match up now confidence shouldn't Wayne even if they go out there and don't live up to those expectations. Your confidence doesn't waiver based on on just individual results. He said in general. I'm looking at that group. I'm looking at our group. Our group is better than no I look. I love the confidence. I'll tell you what I love about this. He was talking about his group. He wasn't just talking about himself he was talking to us. And I appreciate that side of it. I also appreciate the confidence but you can know that and not exude it. You don't have to say this out loud you could. You could all quietly in your room. Know how talented you are because you took a twenty four point deficit in the first quarter of a game and how to lead by half like we get it. You guys are talented. You are physical and you are fast passed on the outside you get open you create separation. Nothing more needs to be said. Here's what I don't like about it out some of it's not factually true. True those go so when you look at their last bunch of games Patrick mahomes healthy and you look at the Oakland raiders passing yards that they put up against that team it was under two two hundred is under two hundred one of the final two games against the chargers under two hundred against the Patriots. I mean yeah you put over three hundred on the Houston Texans but but if nobody can cover you and you're not really knocking the doors off of all of these competitors down the stretch of the season. Then what were they doing doing. I think they were covering you. tyreek I think they were covering Yumiko hard been Watkins. Kelsey and by the way Kelsey has been limping around at practice this week so there are some issues. I don't like it just because I'm paranoid chief's Fan and I know the history of the chiefs and all the things that can go wrong all but the other thing. It sounds exactly like Last week earl. Thomas talked about the Patriots. They weren't interested in tackling derrick. Henry that won't be our problem here. We put two hundred on them. This to me is cut from the same cloth man. There's no there was no reason for him to say it because most sports fans believe tyreek Hill said most broadcasters believing man this offense is unstoppable. These weapons would unstoppable. Can't play man can't plays oh I just think what. He's helped to sharpen their focus and preparation. This week is an extra motivation. No I do think it's extra focus and preparation ration- and a belief in the system that they're going to go out. I'm not going to be embarrassed by this group of wide receivers and weapons. Yeah I mean I'm different. I like a mouse spoken. I know that they're independent. Actions what I say versus what I actually do on the field. They're not connected. We can grab storyline. We could find commonality between the guys who are predicted wrong and we also do that for the guy who predicted correctly. I'm looking at it like if you're prepared. You never scare. I WANNA gaze as before talking bark and bark and bald also went out there. Barking Bargain Barg got home. Left out to dry right whoops then and you can go out there saying I'm not GonNa say a word that doesn't mean don't play. Well I remember. We had a guy at our locker room leaving name out of their war paint to to to smell assaults in the nostrils Astakhov. Don't speak to me go out there. Get busted sorry about how tyreek heels play tar heels are gonNA play his gay. It's about maybe maybe did he. Sharpen the focus the resolve and the effort in some way. That Tennessee is GONNA put out. I think the fifty third Manno Tennessee is prepared this week. Oh Yeah Looking over the AFC championship what's up with the NFC super six this weekend for the packers forty niners. Yes Sir it is and before the game kicks off on Sunday. Be sure to download the Super Six seven. Plays for free for your chance to win. Terry Bradshaw Twenty five thousand dollars guys. When the question is is how many combined passing says downs? Forty niners and packer stroll will like Marcellus what you got. I can't get this right. I was off last week. I said five. They only had three three. I'm going down to four two garages and to fragilities. And I'm going to Jimmy G.. Warfare Rod parts layer enrich. Hornberger are back time now for darnold questions of the day. I took it away. Homeboy Sarah. Let's move to the pro football hall of fame. You saw some cool moments over the weekend when when Jimmy Johnson and Bill cowher finding out they've been named to the Hall Centennial Class Will Former Cowboys Receiver Drew Pearson was hoping for a moment and has some cameras around when the rest of the class of being announced. Only problem is he didn't make it take my heart and he didn't like this strong it out when as you guys. What's your reaction to there's video and I've always felt like the NFL the Go-to a policy of you got ten years to make it into the hall of fame after you're eligible if you don't make it in ten years you're taking off the ballot the pain in this guy? I seventy years old He's been waiting thirty years all hell. It should have been over with twenty years ago Let me ask you that. I I disagree with Cabinet. Because would you always say mark. People always talk about minor surgery. Does you know when you say camping but but if I do fears in dome to cap it along I have a breath of life. I want an opportunity but to me. This was sad to watch. This was sad because grandma said. Don't let them steal your joy and right now they have his happiness hostage because he's still waiting and not just waiting but so invested and I understand why the only member of the nineteen seventies all decade team not in the hall of fame. But don't forget it's an accolade is subjective. Volt volt that is not looking directly at the numbers they're going deeper into some contributions and a lot of voters have Dallas connection. So you can't even say the by. Hi Is this is a tough situation. Watch a man especially with such accomplished career thirty years thirty waiting for just one moment to put the Cherry on top. I'd I'd agree with that I I. You can't cap it because a good friend of mine by Emma Jerry Kramer. One of the greatest of all time out of the University of Idaho just got in what a year ago and he was in his eighties. And everybody. When you said Jerry Kramer they just assumed? They saw the block in the championship. Game Against Dallas Dallas cowboys in the free You know in the in the frozen bowl type of thing right. And everybody assumed he was in and he didn't get into a year ago. Say about great movies mark was you wouldn't believe what was on the cutting room floor. Yeah that's what makes it great things that get left out. Make the people that actually get even. Listen I was sad for me. It was sad for me to watch that. But listen there are plenty of guys just like Drew Pearson and one of those guys randy gradisher seven in time pro bowler six time all pro when I'm grown up I'm watching Jack Lambert Randy gradisher on those are the two greatest middle linebackers in the history. And I happen to believe it. At that time of the seventies and they were both parts great defenses think about this now doomsday defense. There's hall of famers in it. The the Steel Curtain Defense Hall of Famers in it the purple people eaters. There's hall of famers in it the orange crush defense. There's not one hall of Famer from the Orange crush defense in in the hall of fame. That's a travesty. This is a really tight aperture that we put on these situations because it's one man's emotions and his tears. But if you widen this Out and you really look at what we're talking about. Why does drew Pearson needs a bunch of writers and broadcasters and people affiliated with the whole town? He's great drew. You're great you're great. We all know it. We appreciate your contributions to the game. It's not enough for some but I'm telling you that gold jacket. They put ron you represent goal. They might as well put dollar signs on it. There's a lot of the reason. Why so a lot of guys are desperate? It's a money making vehicle autograph. Grab it changes your life definitely but look at what. I'm not going. Ocho Cinco route. Where you just make up your own Jackie but dammit where like you don't have to have the actual physical cool jacket to wear that success that you're talking about and that's what's disturbing right now I understand? He's waiting at the bus. Stop certain point get up and walk the little like. Don't just sit there waiting for them to come to you. You're right about the monetary rewards but still. It just seems like even deeper than that. Well look I do think is deeper super but and again I'm people don't like me because I say things like this I drew Pearson out not a hall of fame. Oh Harold Carmichael not not a hall of fame I could rattle off a few rash. Didn't make it either. There's there's on four time all pro three time saying if everybody everybody let everybody in or is not the hall of fame anymore and so to me and I don't WanNa be hard on Drew Pearson. I get it but but some of what you're seeing is like an entitlement of how dare you not put me in the hall of fame. I don't know about that. Also the millennials players good point about exclusivity though because we all know this lines create interest. You go to the sunset strip and you see see a long line outside a nightclub. You're thinking well they got something figured out there. And that's why everybody wants in the hall of fame except when you go in that globe in time now for the most business special of the day I want to return to the topic of black. NFL head coaches and they trend in sports that may be limiting their rise analytics. Yesterday I ready story about the role of Brown's chief strategy officer Paul Depot Desta in the hiring of new coach. Kevin Stansky Dedessa is a proponent of analytics which is basically using massive amounts of statistics and data to informed decision making Cleveland Dot Com describe de pedestrians thinking an football analytics. This way. It's a way of thinking a way of doing the business a way of ideally of winning. It's brain over gut data over instincts gathering information that assistant drafting players and calling plays and everything in between it's being smart and open minded and collaborative and adaptable and it has spread around the NFL. Analytic it expressed first in major league baseball. It was originally called sabermetrics which is short for the Society for American Baseball Research in the nineteen nineties the in athletics general manager Billy beane fully embrace sabermetrics analytics analytics next move to the NBA before he was the face of the NBA's China Lasko Houston Rockets General Manager. Darryl Maury was the face of the League's analytics revolution. Football was the last sports to catch analytics fever in two thousand sixteen. The Cleveland browns hired. Billy Bean's assistant general manager. Paul Deeper Desta to bring analytics and that wave to the NFL l.. The wave is here now the NFL has embraced analytics among other things it shapes NFL coaches philosophy on fourth down decisions and two point conversions and decision making in professional sports are heavily influenced by the embrace of analytics. Guess which group of people are seen as most resistant to analytics addicts black people. Here's an excerpt from what my good friend. Michael Wilbon wrote for the undefeated in two thousand sixteen. The mission was to find black folks who spend any time talking about advanced analytics who's conversations are framed by or even casually include references to win shares or effective shooting percentage whip or points per possession. It's a failed mission so far totally empty conclusion advanced analytics and black folks. Hardly ever mix set aside a tiny handful of black men who have who make a living somewhere in the sports industry dealing with the numbers. There is absolutely zero aerob- mingling here's a clip of my good friend. Charles Barkley talking about Daryl Morey and analytics in two thousand fifteen. I'm not worried about their maury. He's one windows idiots who believe in analytics he went out and Got James Harden. Dwight Howard go tim. It has analytics. Anyone got Trevor Ariza but Navy what got Josh Smith. So first of all always believed analytics was crap and you know I never mentioned the rockets as a legitimate contender. Because they're not from two thousand one through two thousand fourteen the NBA average eleven black coaches. There are six black head coaches working in the NBA. Today analytics is is about brains over guts. Your Gut might tell you. Racism explains the dwindling number of black coaches in the NFL. The data might say. It's our reluctance to jump on the Analytics Politics Bandwagon. Analytics isn't going away. We can get with it or we can get left behind Marcellus Rowley who is the NFL's Dell's invasive analytics. A factor in holding back black coaches. No I I think if you chase analytics you just be chasing the latest wave that tries to explain the lack of minority black coaches in the NFL. You guys remember all the ways. Let's start with nobody. Nobody likes to highlight the thinking positions. I remember let's go back thirty. Forty years thinking positions where it used to be the safety linebacker a center and a quarterback white positions because the black players not deemed as intelligent perceived as intelligent as those white players in those positions. So now let's talk about where we are today. I think two things are really at play here because if you take the analytics guess what. There was a time where we're tasting the young office coordinator of quarterback coaches to office a quality. Control guys like we continue to say. Put yourself in those buckets. But they continue to move the bucket. Two things happen one when I retired. Not Too many brothers wanted to coach route. One and a lot of my brother's like Nah Dog not coaching. It's almost like how baseball's for the high school level like you're good at it but I don't see the end in sight. How many years in the minors? How many teams how many cities and a lot of brothers was like? I'm not coaching. So there's a smaller pool of advocates. When you talk about black coaches if you talk about especially into buckets that exists right now? We are left which Eric B enemy. How many guys really in those officer positions and the second thing is if you really look at it when you have that smaller pool and the guys are not doing exactly what they're poaching from? You're going to be in this situation where you have. Three black head coaches his which crazy enough is reflective of the population of black people in this country. Thirteen percent of the coaches at NFL or black and thirteen percent of the people in this country. You're black to we change. Our cultural values are what we desire out of the game. Post retirement retirement. I think a lot more guys. WanNa get into what I'm doing brothers love to talk it. But a Lotta guys. I don't see one to do the same thing and go through those rigors in that road to becoming black head coach I think he does play a small part. Why we haven't seen as many minority coaches? I think you have to kind of run it up the flagpole the people that hire are you general managers so when you have an an embrace of analytics at the highest level Most of those people come from notice to Ivy League. I League schools and much like you've seen baseball where baseball all is become very ivy league heavy in those upper management positions. Where you're not having a lot of people of color that are there and I'm not saying this a conscious effort to keep blacks out in however if you go all the way back to the high school level stem science technology mathematics? You don't see a heavy population of blacks delving in Endo subjects. And so if you're going to be a part of the nutrient and a nutrient says in sports analytics are being apart. We have to populate the pipeline with those who are interested in math. And so because you don't have many who are dealing in the numbers you have very very small pool so yes. It has played a port because we haven't actively participated faded in that avenue. When it comes to finding jobs in sports well I mean thank goodness all the championships Cleveland? One Podesta was one in fifteen when he took over and sixteen. He's Owen sixteen and seventeen seventy eight and one in eighteen. Yeah these analytics are really Whitman ass in the NFL. The Cleveland Browns for run. I'll listen there are plenty of guys who would embrace analytics that are black. That aren't getting opportunities and there are plenty of guys who aren't embracing being analytics. That are white that are getting opportunities Bo. Sorry about it. I mean the one I think one of the big issues and I think you touched on it and I think it's true through the majority of in my experience in the NFL. The majority of white coaches spend and their time on the offensive side of the ball. And in this game where it's all about quarterbacking in offense and and that's become I mean you you get a young offensive coordinator those guys they WanNa hire and the majority of those guys happen to be white and I also think the the majority that analytics has its biggest influence on the offensive side of the football. And so I again I WANNA be clear. The the question is the NFL's embrace of Alex a factor in holding black coaches back. And so is it doesn't explain it all absolutely not but if the the sports world is being overrun by analytics it is a cross. The board again sabermetrics started in one thousand nine hundred seventy one and and then really took flight in baseball in the nineteen nineties with the Oakland Athletics and Sabermetrics and analytics moved to basketball in the last as ten fifteen years. And go look at. What's happened with basketball coaches go look at the whole conversation? I talked to these guys in my spare time away from the show. All the time about people upset like hey man. We can't get here coaching jobs anymore. And they keep throwing this whole if you're not a analytics guru and so go look at the six. NBA Coaches right now. Five of them are old school guys on their second third rip. Lloyd peers is the only guy. That's the first time head coach. He's a coach of the hawks. And guess what system he came out of the seventy sixers and the process and the the whole analytics so he's put himself in that lane and got the job. The same thing. This analytics revolution is sweeping through the NFL. And if you can't talk that language or if it sounds completely foreign to you and you can't be a participant in the direction the whole organization going because everybody like it or not as moving that direction. It makes you less appealing candidate than maybe a Kevin's defence. Whoever can talk that talk talk you absolutely right? And so here's what has to change. What has to change is the person of color? Whoever does this is going to be the one that is at the forefront of the room? The I who embraces the data. The film with a little bit of their own instincts is going to be the one that goes to the front a lot because as you talk about the hiring well when you have a room full of people who are big believers in analytics. You have to be able to speak that language now you can take that language. Use it the way that you see it because we all analytics as the players we call it a tendencies but we used to get the seats discount reports. What happened on third down what they run? He's done hot short quarterbacks we've all analytics it is now call analytics coaches have to be able to speak that language while still being an old school football coach. You have to meet them. I'm halfway so you can get an opportunity to do what you graduated one of the issues one of the issues. Though is you can tell me about analytics of you know guys forties times and vertical jumps and and you can tell all that the dudes cower he can't play and that's the way it works and so there is there a place for analytics certainly. There's a place but some of sports baseball being one of them has gone overboard. And we WANNA talk about analytics and we want to talk about the Houston Astros. That essentially got rid of all their scouting. Right and they're they're just doing it by the numbers with my rhapsody reports in the spin rates and all the different things that are working on well you know what was more. Poignant for them winning championship was they're cheating analytics. This is what was more important. So the analytics everything halibut place. Everything has its place but let's not. Let's not think it's the end all be all because it's not hell of a point right. Marksand plays Major League Baseball and go. Yeah I just think we're moving the goalpost once again like you said we could change the terminology analytics and then we had tendencies. He's but wha what's GonNa Happen is if you want to chase that it will change again in language as soon as you see analytics hit baseball. What happens happens? You see the rise of Latinos and you see the decline of black and players and then what are they gonNA poke their managers from the the pool. And that's GonNa look more Brown than it's GonNa GonNa look black it same thing in basketball now. Everyone's coming from Europe is a quarter of the league that is now European. I just say that you can't get caught up in the waves because we're really just all of it is a mirage to something that we already know what the constant which is knowing the game rich hornberger and Buckey. He broke back. It's moved to Seattle sponsored by Ziprecruiter. The smartest way to hire. I'm not so in my not so distant past. It looked like Pete Carol and Russell Wilson. We're headed for a dynasty but after another early exit from the Playoffs Wilson says the team has underachieving and seahawks twitter is starting to turn earn against Carroll. Who hasn't made it to an NFC championship game since two thousand fourteen Marcellus? Do you think the Carol Wilson Combo is the smartest way way to win. Yeah definitely a man like you said it was almost dynastic. They one one one play one. Call away from winning two and if you look at this team right now I think they overachieved like let's go back to August and now look at this team. That won a playoff game. This year went to the second round last year. They went to the first round and this year you have an MVP candidate for most of the season and your quarterback Russell Wilson were more important. You Lost Chris Carson right before the postseason. That's a twelve hundred plus yard rusher and you're GONNA do better. What were your expectations like? Only one team wins the rest of a story and your story is you lost your rusher and things change if their kid goes out. Guess how that's going to look cook out there. Guess how that looks like there's Larsen ain't ain't guys. I'm not saying he is in terms of talent. But I'm saying in terms of production for this office to set up their play action. Twelve thirty and sixteen Games fifteen games. You still had another one. Go Sean. Lynch average two yards occur. Don't chew toy you're talking. Hey look yes. He's the right coach coach for Russell. Wilson and here's the reason why because he's been his coach the entire way. There's something to be said about consistency. We're in a culture where every day things exchange on us and we're just getting used to that things don't have to change especially good things and what's happening in Seattle right now is a very good thing you know we. We get all hot and bothered about playoff appearances without making a deep enough run. Isn't it great to make it to the playoffs. I mean to a certain extent as a fan base and every fan base at some point in their history has been guilty of this get a little spoiled and then all of a sudden you think to yourself jeeze. Maybe we OUGHTA make a change coach. That's that's right. We need to get rid of this coach. Russell Wilson needs one of these young guys. Well bring him in and see what happens arguably it's almost always worse before it's better and sometimes it's just bad. Yeah funny thing about the Seattle Seahawks is I understand the fascination with everyone wants to put the ball and Russell Wilson's hands but the reason they won the super bowl where they went to two super bowls because they ran the ball and over fifty percent of snaps in both of those years. There were the most run heavy team in each of those seasons. He is at his best when the running game props them up and allows him to play awfully actually used propped up like he needs. He needs a foot rest he does. He does need to run again. He needs to run a game because what happens then. That's a whole other. QUARTERBACKS quarterbacks most quarterback needs it okay most quarterback. He's not a superstar you to run a running game. Look when they're running around and making plays the home that plays out but I think the big thing. This is a team that was not supposed used to be in the postseason. We didn't think they were GonNa make a an eleven and five running compete for winning the NFC west and he has done a great job of taking whatever is head and put it together. Having done it. The wind speak for themselves. Let me reluctantly speak for seahawks twitter. This I rarely speak for twitter. But I'm going to. I think what they're reflecting is they actually watched Seattle. Get to eleven regular season victories. And they know that it was razor thin that this could have been a seven and nine football team. They know that Seattle ended the season. I think a plus seven point differential. That's that should have been eight nine nine and seven football team. And so what they're saying. Is that what we don't seem to believe here amongst this group is like they think. Russell Wilson is the highest paid quarterback quarterback in football because he deserves to be. Because he's that good and we need to put more of this offense on Russell Wilson and open it up compete carols. Not The coach to ever do that. Well the thing is one thing I love about. My favorite sport track is Istar purist meritocracy and sports sports. When you leave a track event you go in the stands? There's only two questions we'll place you get. And what was your time because that's objective but in football when you lose say oh what happened here we go with the conjunction story coach tripping. Oh he should've rent a boy you shoulda past more. How about so not good enough? It's okay Seattle like right now. Your team team is damn good. You want eleven games. But you lost your rushing attack and you walked in the playoffs one-dimensional and got exposed in the second round which is isn't advancement from last year. Can you take these growing. But here's what I would say about track and field and football. Football's far more interesting because of all the the different variables. All you all when somebody all the different variables in Bob. There's more to discuss this more than nitpick there's more to make got more to story conjecture but I just don't think these seahawks fans are crazy for like. Hey Man. We got the highest paid player. But here's here's what's funny about about them. The more you give Russell Wilson. Yeah the worst team performs. Hello two years ago. He had his best individual season to achieve with six. And and they're saying that's two thousand ten. They're they're looking into review where they look at the issue. I mean look in the Review Mirror but look just in the short distance or I should say the short past Russell Wilson was on his way to an MVP season before he was in this. This guy this guy. This guy is playing playing great football right now and Pete. Carroll is a great football coach. I think everybody's anxious to make changes and on the other side of change. Guess what that grass is not always greener. That's that's my caution here on only in Green Bay. Did the grass get greener. When they moved on from Mike McCarthy to Matt Leflore got less of Air Roger who is eh what thirteen games ten ten does whereas we're we're just teams over five hundred or less? ooh I'm sorry. They should have played people not on the skin on instead. Of course they want seven more games than a year. The evidence of this team the sea hawks being better when Russell was at his best and putting it all on this the second half of last week's game watch the last the way they lost. But if you look at Jimmy's here to help us talk about our approval. Ratings Odell Beckham Junior alive a first. WHO's your big dummy of the day maintenance Rahmatullah neck may man big dummy today? Go to the person that's going drew Pearson. All legend man. You've been sitting on the bus stop so long. You Might WanNa get up and start walking brothers seventy years old. Were Getting Hall of fame. Let it go. He Ain't GonNa make it to the next bus. Stop all right. L. Beckham Junior who's national championship. Annex have landed him in hot water and arrest warrant has been issued after video surfaced of lovie. J. Slapping Security Guard on the backside of the locker room are my such think anything will come of this. Yeah I think actually through this process if other shoes shoes hit heavy would find our sanctions from Aa Odell is facing a thousand dollar fine and up to six months in jail. They might put them behind bars just to make make statement. I don't see it going that far but I I think they're just trying to shake him up so they can have a conversation with him but Uncle Jimmy. We're go serious with uncle Jimmy. No jokes Jimmy. Seventeen years in law enforcement and Kansas City. Wanted your take on this Oh. BJ Locker Room fiasco when this video. I surface did I. Did I not tell you. Oh they're going to charge his ASS. You did say at early literally. Utah's ask her so look man hit let let let let's get some established. Right is right wrong is long and it ain't no in the middle okay okay. Let's just do that no jokes. No jokes listen to what I'm trying to say. And I'm very serious when I saw that. Remember Russell Wilson Russell Westbrook when the little boy testing playing basketball and Russell Westbrook told that Kid's father in no uncertain terms what he would do to him you and his wife if that kid ever touched him while he was working right there in the NBA playoffs. Last year call. Laura got pushed by Fan. We went ballistic. The Fan was banned for life. Come to fire. Come to find out that he was owner but he was still find suspended now. We defend these millionaire athletes. But I guess the the demand the law enforcement officer making forty thousand dollars a year. He ain't got no rights when he's doing his job. Only to millionaires are protected. Right make a point two years ago. Whatnot wasn't Gary Art? Yes you are okay so oh you telling me that odeal junior here. His million dollars is better than my forty thousand dollars. Guess what is more people in America right now making forty thousand fifty thousand dollars making a million dollars no question about okay so therefore people understand far more would life is about to what Odell Beckham Junior's about see my problem with not just Odell Beckham Junior. It also goes to Antonio Brown okay. We didn't have to video surface and ed both of these videos. Show the same thing. A total lack of respect for oneself and definitely respect for law enforcement. And if you ain't got no respectful yourself you ain't GonNa have respect for nobody else. Let alone law enforcement okay. But there's something go wrong who you call it. The little fifty thousand Alamein. I'm supposed to feel sorry for you. Not Bad why you want to respond. aww Hey anything in the moment. He Got Rolls Royce rear ended. That means he was like nothing turned around. Oh the Rolls Royce out guest. That one down. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It'll be Jay dumb fire. It's open thirty five five job performance.

How's everything going? It's going great at great to be here. That's awesome to have you back on the show man and Like I said you know it's good timing here with clubs at Lsu the National Championship Game Gabe on Monday night down in New Orleans a lot of five and a half out there in the offshore market a lot of brick and mortar sitting on six. I read your preview over Rhett wrote a world which is absolutely phenomenal. By the way you think you ideal yeah we can jump right in I. I like Clemson uh-huh and I hope you can get sick but I honestly I I don't I don't need the points personally. I I think the wrong team is favourite here. I I don't know what your thoughts are but that those those are mind I'll just start right out with that. You talked about this in her previewed. Some we've talked about on the show here. I mean before the semi-finals club since a favorite in this hypothetical title match up even with Lsu getting your the nod for this game being in New Orleans Clemson's a favourite going into the semi-finals after one game all the sudden LSU issue five and a half or six. It's an overreaction to be sure it really is it's a recency bias thing for sure it's just that You know in terms of the match up. You know when you when you go in on paper I I tend to focus more on on that stuff than some of these ancillary things that you're seeing on on television and stuff like this us and when you dig into the match ups that the things that actually matter once we start getting into the into the game when the when the when the bullets are flying and stuff like this. I just think that the things that Clemson does they're going to give. LSU A lot of problems when we get onto the field. And I think all you have to do is flipped flipped the clock back one year when we went to last year's title game and I talk a lot about that in the column that you guys can read a wrote a world but just go back to last year's title title Game Against Alabama and what Brent Venables and Clemson's defense did to now obviously Clemson's defense personnel wise is a bit different sprint this year but the things that venables does on defense and again I talk a lot about this in the column and I'm talking schematically. I think they're going to give Joe Borough a lot of problems problems on Monday night. I'm talking about things like this guy's coverages replacer blitzes things that he does to confuse. The quarterback pre snap polls snap and thinks he does to confuse the offensive line. Thinks he does to to change his his defensive pieces around and stuff. I like that He. He's GonNa do things to confuse the quarterback to jit just different stuff like that I I I think he's going to do stuff to disrupt the timing of Borough Confused Confused Borough. We can talk about how that's going to manifest as far as the player props go You know with regards to specific players. LSU's passing game. But I think that's the way that you disrupt. LSU's passing game. And that's the way that you take down. LSU's entire offense that's the way that you beat Lsu. I just think this is a really bad match four. Lsu well and I think too and you look back to the semifinal game against Ohio state and Ohio state broke some big runs in the first half of that game they had a few situations nations fields kinda threw it up and a wide receiver made a big play. You know quite frankly. I mean that was sort of the Justin fields passing attack over the course of the season. I'll say it's wide receivers. Zuber's ran really really good routes got separation and if it was a fifty fifty ball they came down with it and once clemson started making those adjustments minutes later in the second quarter and of course in the second half they did confuse fields. Filled wasn't mobile. He had the knee injury. He was kind of hampered a little bit playing left handed as they like to say. And it showed. And maybe if Dobbins doesn't go out Ohio state still wins that game maybe LSU needs to run the football on Clemson maybe Edward C layer our needs to have a big game for them but once they confused Justin field. I don't think it's as cerebral of a quarterback Joe Borough. I don't think he's as good of a passer as Joe Borough but what's they gave fields. Those different looks he struggled and we'll see if they do that right right at the beginning of the game against borough or something they incorporate as the game goes goes along but that chess match that psychological chess match between borough and really vegetables is probably the key to this game. I would agree with that. And and yeah. Nobody's better at the adjustments than venables and swamp and Sweeney. And nobody's better at going going into the Games aims but you know when you know particularly with with the adjustments. If things aren't going well initially they will figure it out as things go along. Ohio state obviously Ohio state in terms of plus heading into that game they were the number one team in the nation. I think perceptually I talk about this in the column. I think people forget this you know talking about the perception of the line yes. LSU dominated Oklahoma and yes it was difficult for Clemson to put away Ohio state but heading into that game. Ohio state was the number one S P plus team in the nation whereas Oklahoma. Probably you know in hindsight didn't deserve to be in the playoff field and so we're talking about sort of different You know things the national championship game. Maybe should have been clemson against Ohio state. In hindsight you know like after you know those may have been the two best teams in the nation. You you you know what I mean Adam like it at the end of the day. So Dash is sort of like how I'm seeing some of those different things. Do you know what I mean. Yeah absolutely zooey. I mean that's the thing. Is that a lot of people kind of looked at the semi-finals and said well Clemson Ohio. Status is more of a national championship game than it is a semi-final and I think to you have this perception of Lsu they blew out Georgia in the SEC championship. Game and my contention is I. Don't think Georgia was that good defensively. Ridley Georgia was great ostensibly. They weren't that good. I mean obviously. They had some questions on the office of line. Whatnot Jake FROMS NOT GONNA go out there and hang a bunch of points i-in Lsu? Trevor Lawrence can justin fields probably would have been able to jake from. I don't think he's that great of a quarterback and obviously we'll see you you know what he where he winds up going draft but you can poke a lot of holes at Lsu and maybe. That's unfair because I know people are GonNa say the same thing as well Clemson. Didn't and play a Georgia Clemson in play anybody in the regular season I understand that also cross just about everybody that they played so they did what they had to do for the most part to get to this point and I agree the reasons by a series of LSU waxing Georgia of LSU blowing out Oklahoma it's caused a pretty big ripple in this number and the ironic thing about all of it is Ohio state. Beat three top fifteen teams in a row going into the semi-final they were still an underdog against Clemson. Yeah exactly and then I mean Clemson I mean a lot of things went wrong for Clemson in that game and they still managed to win that game even though they had to wide receiver injuries. Even though Ohio state and they're awesome secondary manage two arrays as those receivers with those injuries. Trevor Lawrence found away venables in double found a way. They found a way they found a way to beat perhaps apps what was maybe the best team in the nation. If they weren't and I guess the way that I see this game if Ohio state wasn't the best team in the nation into me Clemson was and I guess. I just see this game different than the Public Betas does or whoever you know is is informing this lineup. Ah Joe Public. What isn't because to me? LSU Is not six points better than the Clemson in a vacuum. I I think the Clemson is is the better team in a vacuum. And it doesn't have to do with this idea of like you know just because Clemson is battle-tested or championship whatever. It doesn't have anything to do with that and it doesn't have to do with you know LSU with recency bias or anything like that it just has to do with You know it just has to do with personnel and with with coaching staffs and stuff like that and it has to do with Lake doc number base things and stuff like that and I just think that Clemson is a better match up on paper for specifically for Lsu. I think that the thing that Clemson it does so well is the thing that they're best at is taking away passing attacks we see it over and over and over again and this year's team is number one in numerous Pass defense categories both conventionally and in advance stats like you you look at like the s P plus stats You know and again and the the conventional stats like that you know passer rating against Conventional the conventional passed out defense Pass defense but also like you know the the the regular S. P. Plus advanced pass defense metrics there also number wanted in numerous ones are those and again they have awesome Defenders back there they have they have multiple guys in the secondary that are going onto the NFL but they also have venables whose disguised coverages and the way that they do that these replacer blitzes it. It just next level like venables is I can't say enough about him and the other thing I want to talk about in an atom you and I last year and I have to give you a lot of credit for this. I don't want to blow smoke up your but last year. You talked a lot about Isaiah Simmons on this podcast. We were talking about props heading into that Alabama game. Am You you brought up by J Simmons and we talked about Simmons on this podcast. A lot in Isaiah. Simmons went absolutely ballistic in that game last year. I think Isaiah Simmons is going to have a lot to say on Monday night and I think Isaiah Simmons I think that they are gonNa sick him on just Jefferson just just in Jefferson you know LSU. Just talk about schematics. I I want to get into specifics. A little bit. You know we sort of been talking Generali's a little bit. I WANNA get into specifics. A little bit in terms in terms at the scheme. LSU traditionally these these past many years. They've had this sort of run. First offense it's been sort of turn back the clock etc and then this year they go spread. They're throwing a ton and yet they're they're top five in the nation. A lot of these offensive efficiency categories. and You wonder you're like how can they be throwing the ball so much and yet they skyrocketed in all the efficiency categories and they're also explosive and stuff like that but how how did they get so efficient so fast despite you know throwing so much more well a part of it is The the they have this big slot and just in Jefferson and he can just abused these. He's Khalid the small collegiate slot guys because you know in the NFL. There's more cornerbacks to go around. You know you have better slots in the NFL but in college allege you do not have that many defensive backs to go around you. Most college programs do not have really good slot cornerbacks. That's typically where your your you're worse cornerbacks going. Typically were the run to the litter is going unfortunately for Lsu. Clemson has a guy that I like to call it Simmons and they are going going to be able to put him in the slot against Jefferson. Jefferson had I put this in my column but he had ninety one or ninety. Two percent of his his his snaps came in the slide. Now this is just my posh chelation because venables does a billion different things with Isaiah. Simmons you can I mean they. They list him at linebacker so he plays they're they. They can play him at safety. They can play him deep They put him off the edge sometimes and then he also plays in the slot. You can I mean like I say he's listed at linebacker when the buck is but you can play him literally anywhere I refer to him as a nullah fire I think it is misleading leading to call him a a linebacker. But in this game what I would do I would just say hey. LSU You know the Justin Jefferson thing how you guys could just throw it to him and get first downs whenever you want. He's going away so so in this game Justin Jeff. He's going away because we are just putting. We're GONNA put Simmons on him so so sorry about that and then as far as Jomar chase goes we're GONNA put Moland on him on the outside or six foot one. NFL Corner and then we're going to have double team. Help over the top ballgame. So how'd you like that. That and then I I suppose on the other side with Tariffs Marshall who right now has an injury and as a couple of days ago. We weren't sure he was gonNA play. I guess. Se is now but you know he's he's not one hundred percent I suppose you can throw to him more but You're you're Nicole winner chase. He's going to be double team the whole game. We're going to have one of the best defenders in college football just harassing Jefferson. The whole time. We're going to have venables. He for the past couple of weeks. He's just been cooking up. The craziest disguise looks ever for for Joe Borough and we're just going to do that. And we know that you guys can't default back to running it just like Obama last year old in the you guys don't have breath the multiple I mean like Bam if you were going to perceive that a team could default back to the run game more you would have perceived the Alabama could do that got more effectively than this. Lsu Team this Lsu team is more top heavy. I think Alabama team was I think this Lsu team you hinder that passing assing attack. Like I said in the column you shoot the blimp out of the sky. You Know Auburn earlier this season I think they they were one of the teams that came closest to doing it almost beat Lsu. I think if if Clemson's able to do that at all I think that they're going to give them a lot of problems and I think Isaiah Simmons in particular if he's able to Jefferson order the game and they do a lot of the double teams with with chase and they start to confuse borough. I just think that gives. LSU offense a lot of problems. Well let's look at this in terms of the College Football playoff semifinal. You WanNa talk about a player that sort of almost a chameleon like he can play a bunch. Gotcha different roles Sean Wade for state. You'll before Sean Wade got ejected from that targeting call Clemson had no points and four point three yards per play hi this coming from. ESPN stats and Info after the targeting. Call after he got kicked out of the game. clemson eight point four yards per play twenty nine nine points. CLEMSON's got three or four shot. Wade's back there. In the secondary of guys that can blitz guys that can cover the outside guys that can be a slot corner guys can be out there disguise themselves in zone something like that. Ohio State lost that Guy Against Clemson. They lost a lot on defense. Clemson has multiple of shot wade types of players. And that's what makes us venables defense so good and why they're able to adjust so much. Have those guys back there in the secondary or hybrid types the players where they can line up anywhere and be effective and having a guy like Simmons gives you that Opportunity Having Taylor music and either follow Edward. C layer or provide. Help over the top gives you that opportunity. They've got so many guys back there that they can just do so many different things with and that's what borough has to figure figure out and all of the sudden here and again no the. Sec Is God's chosen conference in this and that and it's got your the greatest recruiting classes for the most part all the sudden those those LSU big physical athletic wide receivers are looking in the mirror when they lined up against Clemson and that was some guy talked about going into the Ohio state. Clemson game the closest also these two teams get to playing their respective talent levels was in practice. And that's how that game played out. This is a wakeup call for Lsu. I know they play in the SEC. And this and that Alabama moved it on them. Alabama couldn't stop him but Alabama moved in autumn. Clemson the best defense. And that's something I think is going to show up here in the first half of this game and very much in the second half as venables makes his adjustments. Yeah I mean I yeah I mean we can jump to. LSU's defense or now that LSU's defense is is is a big riddle for me. And I think that's that's the hardest thing for me to figure right now. I think there's one part of the handicap. That was really tough for me. It's figuring out. LSU's defense. I think it's really only instructive to talk about it since you know. Basically the the middle of November so like going back to the Bama Game divinity left Michael Divinity left the team after the that Auburn game. And then you had the Alabama game was a disaster and a debacle. You had to a probably shouldn't have been playing. You know he was. He was hurt hurt. He couldn't run out of the pocket he had that fumble early in the game where he was just scrambling towards the goal line. The fumbled without getting touched Because he was afraid to make cuts his velocity Austin was affected because he couldn't step into throws and yet dangerous ripped up. LSU His his receivers were getting separation. The whole game like the running lanes were wide open. It was easy for them to move the ball down the field next week against Ole Miss. LSU could not stop like the. Ah John Paul Plumlee. The quarterback ran for over two hundred yards and Lsu gave up Dang near four hundred yards rushing like there was major your major issues on on on defense but so these were the first two games that this veteran linebacker Michael Divinity had left the team and then all of a sudden it was like. Snap your fingers in the last four games. LSU's defense was all of a sudden awesome They they went on this crazy run. Where the last four games I think they allow? It was sixteen points per game. The first game was against Arkansas. You SORTA Todd said Oh it but the last three games was very very impressive. Texas am them Georgia and then of course Oklahoma and now you know I talk about this in the column Michael Divinity is coming back now and and he's going to start in the dime package and what the coaching staff was talking about. A lot of it had to do with divinity coming back to help out the pass rush. Well well now now. This is sort of playing armchair psychologist a bit but you know. LSU's best pass rusher. Sure and one of their top pearl prospects is. Is this guy named chase on. You know. Everybody knows about chase on Jason's a freak and he's you know he was he he's been the guy that NFL draft guys like myself talked about for awhile now. Just this this edge freak chase on's ascendance has happened well divinity has been away from the team on on this sabbatical. It's been this has been the best stretch of his career. He has he had a couple of sacks against Oklahoma and I think he has is three and a half sacks over the last three or four games. or so. And this happens to coincide with this awesome run that Lsu has had on defense here over the last four. The Games are so what. I'm wondering is if divinities absence had anything to do with chase on sort of ascendants here at the end of the season I and if chase on descendants had anything to do with. LSU's defense suddenly taking off. It may or may not but to to me. I don't know if I would have taken the chance of allowing divinity to come back to the team particularly if that had anything to do with like. Oh let's bring in divinity back so that we can improve the pass rush because to me if you finally have chase on playing the best football of his career and this might be chase on probably is Jason's last game I would just let chase onto all that like I. The the point I made in my column is I wouldn't let divinity take Even one pass rushing opportunity from chase on. I wouldn't let his presence affect the game plan in that regard at all and so so my concern is just that like whatever for sort of formula whatever sort of alchemy that that had formed in his absence. I'm Joe I was just sort of concerned a little bit. That him coming back that it could Disrupt that at all I. It's it's not any sort of disrespect to divinity at all. Obviously the the first Games in his absence you know he there. There is a sort of proof of concept of his value just in the the defensive cratered those two games but after that it was just sort of like they found themselves and chase on sort of lake found himself I again. I don't know if I'm playing armchair psychologist with that. But I just have this sort of this weird feeling about it. You know what I mean. Oh yeah absolutely and I mean this is one of those games where your margin for error is so small that you want to the out there and maybe he will have an impact. Maybe he'll he will wind up making a big play. But you don't want to do so at the expense of anything that chase on and you wonder if Dave rant will have the right game plan for that and again I mean this this is why when you talk about teams like this. The elite level teams and really. There are three of them in college football this year. LSU Clemson Ohio state from a talent standpoint Alabama's Alabama's number four and you'll maybe they should have been in the playoff. Who knows? Obviously they didn't have the resume for it. But you know they're the fourth most talented team in the country. The game like this where you don't have that big athletic edge you don't have that big talent edge that you have in every other game that you play. It comes down to schematics. It comes down to coaching. It comes down to you know having players that do the things that we just talked about with Clemson's back seven do the things that Lsu's pass asked Russia's at athletes like help it like some of the guys can do it's about maximizing exactly what those guys do well and then using that in your skin and you can overcomplicate the process a little bit and maybe Clemson did that early in the game against Ohio State. Maybe they tried to do too much and it kind of burn them a a little bit and maybe they got back to what they do. Well in the second half maybe they overcompensated knowing that Ohio state was the best team if they were playing or maybe it was just Ohio state speed and athleticism awesome kind of caught them off guard a little bit. That's just did it in this game. I it's all about execution in a game like this in the regular season when you're Clemson your Lsu you you can overcome some execution things because you're just better than the team. You're play in this game. You're not better than the team you're playing. It's about who maximizes what their personnel does best. I don't know if Aranda does that. Here we know. LSU's offense of coaching staff has done that with Joe Brady with springer and this big big offensive philosophical change that they've had but you wonder if in a game like this more of that stability of Clemson doing what they did last year to win. A title is white. Clemson could very well win the title again this year. One hundred percent. Yeah and just going back to the Ohio state thing I mean I. I don't think the point can be made enough about you know that team was really really really good. I just think that's Ohio State team of my lifetime at eighty two win at all exactly and I think when people go to the window or when people are handicap in this game or when people make that decision I know it's really the easy to think back to what whatever day that was December. Twenty eight December twenty ninth. And you just think about when you're watching those games and how impressive. Lsu looked and then you you think back to Clemson and how they had to claw back and stuff like that. And you know when when you're making that decision I know it's going to be really easy to think. LSU They are you know LSU there world-beater they can't be beat Clemson. They just didn't look that good and they were lucky to win. But people need to keep in mind that that Clemson beat this team that I I a lot of years would have won the national title. You know a lot of years were Would have been the best team in college football and May Have I've been you know the the big Ted's best team in a in a little while here a lot of years. That would have been a really really awesome national title game whereas whereas again you know. LSU beat sort of the runt of the litter of the recent Oklahoma teams. I mean this was not the cuyler Murray Oklahoma team this was not the Baker Mayfield Oklahoma team and so I think those points have had to be made. I think the other point that has to be made as Ohio state could do a lot more on offense what I'm talking about is diversification than than Lsu th th the point. I was trying to make my call him is it. Lsu they put put up these bazookas stats on offense but they play this style where Zucca stats is. That's sort of what you're going for. It's it's sort of like Mad Max type strategy where you know. You're you're you're sort of playing balls to the wall. That's that's that's what you're doing but like in a big spot like at this and we saw this in the Clinton Ohio state game balance I feel like is is going to behoove your chances of winning more And I think that you know it makes you harder to defend and I think that's why Arandas job on Monday night is going to be more difficult. Colt than venables is because Aranda in you know in addition to having to defend Trevor Lawrence who in my opinion. I know. I'm in the minority here but but on Monday night I would rather have Trevor Lawrence quarterbacking my team than Joe Borough but Aranda in addition to that he has to defend Eddie. And and we we haven't talked about like Eddie but Eddie is a frigging beast. Edward Taylor Yeah Edwards layers really good but Edward to layer is more of like he's a complimentary player right like he's he's a guy who you can and do a lot of things with him and in the passing game in particular here in the second half. They've done a lot of really cool things with him and Brady does so many he cool thing. I was watching. I was watching a lot of these these ups of these these Games here in the last ten days when I was reading these when I was when I was writing the the the championship calm and I just watching like all the pre snap motion. Everything they were doing with them. Like in the passing game is like Super Duper Fun. You know and like you know everything. They were doing Edwards hilarious. But like Eddie and is a guy that you know he moves the needle for you you know whereas Efforts layer is more like a complimentary guy and stuff up like that But I I don't know I just think Arandas job is is going to be a lot tougher than than venables is and I think that that venables was just sort of constructed structed to to take down and you know what what. Lsu what they do you know and as we transition over to talk about the props offshore few minutes here. I mean. Obviously we've already talked about some of the match ups that kind of intrigue us in this game we don't have a lot of prop lines out there as of yet. But you certainly you about the game and flow of this game you start thinking about all the things we talked about schematically and what these coaches half to do in order to adjust to a lot of these different things and I will say this first and foremost. I know that all the talk in this game is going to be about the quarterbacks. It's going to be about Lawrence. It's going to be about borough I think. NTN and Edwards Hilar- play a massive passive role in this game. I if you're Lsu you do want to try to run the football a little bit because we saw Ohio state run the football clemson and also. It's going to get you away from some some of those unbalanced fronts disguised blitzes all those types of things. Now that's if Edwards Hilar- is healthy in this game and I have to believe that he's as healthy theus he's been over the last little while didn't play much against Oklahoma wasn't needed against Oklahoma. If that's a guy that can't get you twenty to twenty five touches in this game I it'll be very difficult for LSU to win this game now. This is a guy. I think that you know you can do some more option with NTN and Lawrence like they. Did I used to leading chase young beating chase young to the outside kind of trying to tire him out a little bit. We saw them do that in that semifinal game I would expect more of that here her especially to kind of offset chase on in the pass rush for Lsu. I think is GonNa get a lot of this year whether they're receiving or rushing. I'M GONNA play. Some of his some of his rushing over. I'M GONNA play Oetzi layers receptions over the running backs get a lot of space here in this game because you've got the ability to take these wide receivers this deep downfield and kind of leave some of that open field in the middle for everybody running backs both do very well. In this game I agree particularly particularly on the case of of I think he is going to have a really big game and something that we should talk about his is. LSU's defense gives up a lot of explosive blows. Plays and I I like to rip off a couple. A couple explosive plays rushing the ball. He may even a bust off a swing pass pass. I mean we'll we'll see Clemson's receivers you know. We have to see if they are coming off of their own injuries. You know they're back the practice and everything like that they. They got banged up in the Ohio. State game seems like they're going to be healthy. You know you mentioned Edwards hilarious. Seems like he's going to be as well but I liked the matchup for him. Because of the reasons we were talking about LSU's run defense has been really up and down. I like the point that you made with regards to Lawrence's this is well. LSU's defenders got asked a lot about Lawrence's legs this week obviously You know he ran for over one hundred yards against Ohio state. LSU's run defense. Fence has had some issues. You know you know. And we you know against quarterbacks as well we talked a little bit about that they are that has been A A bit of a focus over this this past week or two. However you know once the bullets start flying? It's not like that's something that they're going to be focusing on more. But then you know. Lawrence passing downfield to Higgins and Ross. Or they're going to be focusing more on then on on the and that's how these running lane start to open up and I made at this point in my column where you know to compromise to. He threw for over four hundred yards in that Alabama game. Even though he wasn't getting the mustard on the ball that he usually does and the point that I was making was I thought he could run for over one hundred yards if he had wanted to and if and if his leg was sounded in that game. It's just that he didn't want to leave the pocket. After that first unforced fumble and I think Lawrence Druthers if he wants to I think if if if if if that's available I think it might be available. I think you might see him. TUCK IT and run a couple times whether that's designed or whether you know. There's just some some scrambles because LSU there has been times this season were that has been available in Adam going back to some that they you said last year I remember. You said this to do you. At a prompt. It had to do with Lawrence's rushing yards against Alabama. And I remember I joined you on that and I remember that was one of the very few ones that we sweat until the end and I think the Lawrence Ida data had a scramble later on. I think we ended up cash in that one The lawrence rushing yards thing. I think that's something I don't know. What the prop is on that one? But that might be something than to look into to just because LSU's run defense has had some issues with that one as well looks like right now Ben Online. The only offshore I'm seeing some props there rushing yards at least X. number of yards Trevor Lawrence Baseline right now at fifty three. So I guess we'll see of course as some of these books start to opened some of these things up but again we talked about game for. We talked about a lot of individual match ups here in those are things that you wanna take a chance to study over the weekend and I can tell.

And that is professional capper Brad powers from bradpowerssports.com DOT COM right. How's it going today man? Let's go wow how you doing on this fine Thursday very well buddy appreciate your time as always here and I gotta say it's probably a little bit bitter sweet suite for you hear that there's only to college football games left for the season you would think I feel that way but you know it wasn't necessarily a a great season for all BP so I say you know almost good riddance institute. Twenty nineteen nine. You shouldn't have some bitterness towards that but I mean and I got a lot of Self reflection self scouting to do heading into twenty twenty that Is probably time then. Then I'm located. The close was the book. I'll I'll say this this normally doesn't happen even with two games left. I got through relatively strong opinions on on the upcoming Games. And that's usually not the case so when you're down to the final games and usually the best teams left. Well let's take a look at these two games that we start on the F.. CSI James Madison. North Dakota State Game Adl one eight zero to noon eastern kickoff on Saturday here James Madison favourite across most of the mark. There are some places that are kind of dealing pick them a couple of places dealing one one and a half with extra juice in fact as you kind of look around here. This spread is sort of all all over the place. Total has come down a bit from fifty one and a half to forty nine. Yeah I mean clearly I mean these teams are basically the Alabama and Clemson Zain of the last four years the two best programs in easily this year the the two best teams between the two of them there. There's only been one loss and it was James. Madison are not against West Virginia where they really outplayed West. Virginia three turnovers did amend so. That's the only loss between these teams combine. This season are. They clearly been far superior even in the playoffs so far. James Madison really hasn't had a close game yet. Although North Dakota state a few games ago the NIP and Tuck type of game against Illinois state you know two teams that are easily wanted to in any sort of power. And you WANNA look at heading into into it. I'M GONNA go with the under here and hear me out for several different reasons number one for me whether concerns there. There's a really nasty weather front coming coming through Frisco. Texas this is where the game is played at Did so neutral site game. Although North Dakota state have the advantage here they've been known to travel very well down to the Texas so weather for the game. Kickoff wind is going to be right around twenty miles per hour to me. That's like almost an auto under bet. They're the number two reason why I liked the under here. It's unlike any other game that these teams have played all year. And here's why three weeks takes off from the time. These two teams last played neither teams Dealt with that all season long so you played a bunch of regular season games in a row. Oh you played three straight playoff games and now you had three weeks in between time so I think the offense of timing could be a little off especially early in the game slots this reason number two. I like the under three third and final. Just look at how the game flow goes when these two teams not only play each other in the past when it comes to playoff meanings thinks I think the two teams have averaged thirty seven total points per game last two playoff meetings but even like a team like James Madison this year. The look at their three best teams that they faced at this year and how the game flow goes average scores like James Madison. Twenty four to nine. So they're not afraid to you. Know to slow the game down rely on their defense. Speaking of defenses atop to defenses in the FCS Adamy added all up brother Under for me The promise this smelly and give five. G's down the one book where I found fifty one yesterday after a handicapped. It allowed me about five hundred bucks and then they moved to the point and a half after I try about it. Yeah that is definitely a thing here with the F. C. S. market. At least this is one where you know some people may be invested in this one but of course you do have. NFL Playoff Games. He's here on Saturday. That people will probably be a little bit more invested in ascension. Oh that'd be a little bit. You mentioned that there's some weather considerations here with some wind and of course there's some snow going through taxes as well with this weather system. Does that impact one team more than the other to the point. Where maybe it kind of gives you a position on on the side? Great Question I mean. Both teams are more run oriented North Dakota state as a fine young quarterback I think there's you know He hasn't thrown an interception yet this year but I did. They kind of protected him a little bit so far at least a couple of years. I've seen the play offs For North Dakota State. No I don't think it does although I will say this. James Madison played as played in a little bit of weather. And you would think North Dakota state's playing a bunch of weather games sheer but obviously sleep might remember they play in the Fargo Dome so James Madison just recently played in a weather type of game in their playoffs. So maybe I mean if there is some lingering you know rain rain wind you know obviously wind will be consistent throughout it. But if there's any drizzle or sleet or whatever mixed precipitation I think it actually might be advantages as mass and just because they played a recent game won't again looking at the under here as you said. North Dakota state protecting their quarterback a lot in game of this magnitude. They're probably not going going to put it in his hands so again. You're going to have likely a running clock for most of this game. It's like the under a very good position to take their based on the handicap that you just gave us the the big one Monday clemson. LSU To eighty three to eighty four LSU five and a half pretty much market wide still. There's a stray five live. There's a stray. Six all depends on if you shop around here a little bit. Total of sixty nine and a half for this one. We talked a little bit about this game last week. We kinda gave a cliff notes bullet point handicap of it. What are you looking at here as we're now just a few days away from the game while say this I mean if you ought to visit us here in the great city of Las Vegas we're paying. It's six at a lot of places here in town so five and a half offshore most else places although there's a few outliers but six at the square books here In Vegas multiple books here painting six They can't get enough of LSU. You Hear I. I rarely have a significant position. The National Championship Game May outside of maybe some props. I got one here and it's actually sleep ratings looking at it Prior to the semi-final so you know we talked a little bit about this last week for those. That didn't listen. I mean this this this matchup was offered you could bet this clemson. LSU theoretical matchup and multiple books prior to the semi-final Games. I saw one book at Clemson. a one point favorite I saw another have LSU one. I had the game power rated a pick em giving LSU two and a half points a home field advantage which. I mean as about as much as I go when it comes to home field advantage for quote unquote neutral site I downgraded clemson appoint after the Buckeye game even though they want and covered it upgraded. Lsu You too points for that destruction of Oklahoma Maybe give Al Shoe another half point. They're getting Michael Divinity Back on defense. I mean that's three and a half if you subscribe to my newsletter go through every single position and other factors like obviously turf in the crowd matchups intangibles strength the schedule will and whatnot and got LSU by three and a half there. I can't get it to six adamant to me. Looks like a clear overreaction to what we just saw saw last and public loves the bet offense while they saw on offense with Joe Borough. They're kind of like the the football sexy type team and I just think it's clear reaction to what we just saw lasting the the reason why. LSU's not laying. Three and a half four years. I mean it. Just because of an overreaction so I'm GonNa Take Clemson plus six and I liked quite a bit. Yeah I agree with everything you said there and and look I mean thank you and I are realists here to fully understand that with this. LSU offense with the job that Joe boroughs done there is a chance. I don't know how great of a chance it is there is there's a chance that Lsu just goes out there dominates this game wins by ten or fourteen points and it wouldn't surprise either one of us but again for me line value standpoint point it is very clearly on Clemson you're paying the utmost premium tobacco LSU. I haven't had this game three and a half clemson minus three and a half and a neutral going into the semi-finals with the home field clemson minus one would probably be my number there. I can't get to six either you know. And that's even with making some adjustments off of what we saw in the semifinals and get narrative drives so much at this time of the year as we know the narrative about the Clemson Ohio state the game and I think this is a pretty valid point overall. Is that Ohio State lost. It's not clemson one. It's in Ohio lost. They left all those points out there in the first half Alavi was open on that last play until he broke off the route thing that filled with scrambling. I don't know if he makes the catch. I Dunno fields puts it where he needs to. But Look you look at the twenty two that throw was there so that's even more fuel to that narrative of well. Ohio State Lost Clemson and win the game. Ohio State lost everything. Changed with shot. Wade went out another mark against Clemson. And all this is doing and God I hate this. But it's fueling everything the Dabbagh keeps heap sing about. His team were disrespected or underappreciated. We're underrated this line. Suggests that they are and at this point in time in the bedding context I I agree with it. Yeah my one. Point Downgrade of Clemson from Ohio State. Game is I basically treated like Clemson did lose the game. That's why downgraded. Oh great point even though they won the game and covered it so I treated like the. They probably should've lost that game. But I I just Adam. I never seen Defending National Champ at least in a very high profile game and if you look at the public banning percentages it's like three to one Lsu here a team that's won twenty ninety nine consecutive games in a row. Now they win this one. It will be the longest winning streak we've seen from any team. Since those Reggie Bush met line are teams that won thirty four zero And the fact that here's another I mean you talk about Clemson being disrespected I would say the market has clemson's two field goals away from being thirteen and one against the spread red and the two games they didn't cover besides the obvious one which everyone wants to talk about the North Carolina game but they failed to cover by about a field goal against WOFFORD offered. FCS Team when they're laying forty eight and then of course you know back a week to Texas. A&M was scored on fourth down with five seconds left to get the back door. I mean that's it those the North Carolina game those two games. I just mentioned the only three games clemson hasn't covered this year. The easily could be thirteen and one against the number. I mean I I just I. I don't get it especially when you look at dabble swings track record in the postseason where he's ten and one against the number since two thousand twelve average covered by two touchdowns a game I mean I get. LSU's been very I mean impressive expressly last game against Georgia in Oklahoma but digest. I I can't get the this far at of the six point. Just looks like a clear overreaction. Really last time I thought we saw in the the playoffs. Is You know Oregon just demolish the defending National Champ Florida State. This was the first place in twenty fourteen and even though the Hawaii State beat Alabama. You Know Oregon's laying more touchdown Roy Moore against the Buckeyes. I just. I couldn't understand that line and I don't understand in this one. I'll throw this at you and I think sometimes you can use this in your back pocket when you don't understand a line or you think you're off a little bit. used the rule the two I if this line was LSU minus four. What would that still make sense if it was two points away from words that now now I think it'd be a fair or number if it was Lsu mice three and half my swore but if you increase the two points the line LSU minus seven and a half minus-eight? I mean wh who would you be baton. Then I mean I'd have to most people in Clemson at that point you. That's an interesting concept. I never heard of that. And maybe that's something that will have to dive in with a little bit more. Once we've got a larger set of games into the next regular season but something else I want to mention here going and again in another mark against Clemson in in the court of public opinion and I mean. This one's a little bit more realistic. They did not play a good schedule. You know it I know it everybody knows that. LSU Did play play a very good schedule here over the course of the season so that is fueling the narrative but as you just said Clemson's a couple of field goals away from being thirteen in one against against the number laying enormous numbers in almost all of their games their lowest favourite role in the regular season fifteen and a half and they still crushed shit from an ats standpoint in terms of their records. So this is a team. You talk about performing to expectation you talk about performing to you. Know what their strategy is supposed supposed to be. It's not Clinton's fault. They didn't play anybody but when they did play games. They did what they were supposed to do. For the most part I mean that's scheduled factored into my power rating. So it's not like I only incorporate it I mean I gave Lsu in all a couple of extra points for that. And I still can't get it the six and I'll I'll say this. If you add question marks about Clemson strength the schedule that certainly showed early in the Ohio state game to me. It looked like wow Clinton hadn't seen seen that kind of team speed and physicality early on and it was kind of A. Shell shock to them. But I would say this Adam They certainly responded well after they were punched in the mouth a few times for the first time. This season I mean for a team that that's really hadn't been involved in too many close games. I mean basically one. The North Carolina game all season long that define themselves down sixteen nothing in all everything game against what I perceived to be one of the best big ten teams. I've seen Brian the last ten fifteen eighteen twenty years for them. Still come back and I thought you know you could say Ohio state easily could have won that game but I thought last thirty five forty minutes a game on. I didn't see much difference between the two teams. In fact I can make case after the first twenty minutes. Climbs was the better team when they needed to score. They scored an they shut down. Ohio safer majority majority that second half until the last couple of drives so. I mean if you had concerns about Clemson how would they react to a team. We saw town sixteen and up and they reacted about. Not as well as you could. Yeah that was a big point that I made going into. The Fiesta Bowl was Clemson at Ohio. State only play this level of talent against each other in practice. I mean Ohio State is in a pretty decent big ten but nobody in the big ten is close to Ohio state athletically. So this gaming Clemson was a real legitimate test for both teams for Clemson. It took them a little bit more time to get up to speed in that game and ultimately they did ultimately they did advance so with with that in mind here as we transition to looking at some of the prop betting markets. They're going to be out there. We don't have a lot of exact numbers you mentioned. West Gates got some of their product. Catalog log open out there in Las Vegas. I'm not seeing much in the offshore market that I can reference here at this point in time but we talk about game flow. We're talking about expectation. Asian when we talk about matchups win some of these lines do actually start to pop. Are there some matchups or some game flow things. You're going to look to take advantage of May. Prompt standpoint might seem obvious particularly after in a Lawrence had such a good performance. Running the ball against the buckeyes. But I would expect back to a little bit more of the same that the fact that you know firm majority of the season you. You've got to protect the guy like Trevor Lawrence. So you're not going to be willing Clemson to running against a Boston college or wake forest but we certainly saw went when the chips were down a little bit and you needed someone to make a Klay Rams Sixteen Times The end he didn't have a single game this season Trevor Lawrence more than eleven Russia's and eleven rushes. She's being the North Carolina game so we got two data points to two closest games of the season for Clemson and he got Lawrence with eleven and sixteen carries and averaging about the you know about seventy five rushing yards. I I WANNA get after. That warranty is rushing either attempts over or yards over for me. And it's two fold if we seem that the couple of teams that have had success against Lsu. It's certainly been a mobile quarterback You look at you know rice. Plumlee Lumley for for Ole Miss Having a lot of success running the football against Lsu Eh Lingers at type A guy. That's very mobile for them. Maybe it's probably is most similar to to Lawrence as any other quarterback that Lsu has faced and you know taxes at a lot of success with five hundred thirty total yards that one. So I'M GONNA go look the bed over on Lawrence rushing numbers yeah. I liked that one and something. I thought that clubs in really failed to do well against Ohio state. I thought they should have attacked the middle of the field. I thought they should've attacked me. Carson and Pete Werner and tough borland because they could have done that slant route they have sort of done. You're like what Alabama. What even to a degree Ohio state to use the middle of the field and they didn't do that and and that kind of surprised me opting to go one on one against Ohio states corners and to a degree? It's a big reason. Why Ohio State had so much success defensively early early on in that game before Lawrence sort of softens things up by running the football? I think that that may be a change here for Jeff Scott and the coaching staff and I think they do that would travis at ten. I think the guy that goes over his receiving yards in this game easy to say having just done it against Ohio state. But you'll only had about three hundred receiving yards over the course of the regular season. I had to change it. They make here. I know that grant is going to have to keep an eye. Maybe he winds up providing some help help over the top against some of these very good wide receivers but the wide receivers weren't great in the semi-final for Clemson part of that because of Ohio states quarters but part of it too because because they hadn't faced anything like that from an opposition standpoint over the course of the season I think. ITN's kind of your x factor. Here I think he could run the ball a lot I think he it could be a factor in the receiving game. I kinda like NTN to get a lot of touches here and this one certainly more than the thirteen they had in the semi-final and it makes sense because I do think LSU's got the guys that can least you know when you look at. You Know Derek Sting Lee and grant doubt but I I think they have the guys that can possibly awesome take away the TA. Justin Ross is of of the world at wide receiver. Makes Sense that you feature. Ed E. T. N.. Coming out of back to a little bit more similar to what we like. You said What we saw in the Ohio state game so even against superior athletes Not Superior the him sort of say but but superior to the rest accounts rope Blah reciting t n make a couple of athletic plays that I mean even boggled my mind against no some great talented Allen and Ohio state still had a burst that that even the Ohio states the world scene so I I hate to agree with you all the time you know. I'm not afraid to disagree with you on stuff because we bet all the time on this segment but I agree with you there and I think too. It's it's kind of interesting here for Clemson you you look early on in that game and chase young did not have a very good game against clemson their worst penalties that were missed. I understand that always penalties. It or missed. I no matter the player but early on in that game they shied away from chase young side. They were really only using half of the field over there. I two or three possessions. Then they started opened up started running more option to his side. They got him moving a little bit and then also realize that. Hey our tackles are doing a pretty good job on this guy and that opened up the full complement of their offense playbook I think that is something that they can take full advantage of here in this game and a guy like. NTN allows allows you to use the whole field whether it's a swing. Pass the middle of the field running the football something like that. I just think he's just a bigger factor in the game plan overall here and not to mention. It's never a bad idea to run the football. And Keep It away from Joe Borough as much as you can't so I really think at a focal point here a four clemson in this just one. What about anything else? From a player prop standpoint. You mentioned lawrence rushing attempts and yards something. You'll be looking at anything else that you're kind of considering maybe for the Lsu side. I haven't really dived into the Sea of you. Know one of their wide receivers particularly have a bigger game the very deep their Chase Jefferson. Awesome Marshall Randy Mosses Kid Thaddeus Mosit- tight end. You Know Edwards Hilar- for Lsu. I'm GonNa read a little bit more to see how healthy is. I think he can have some success. You mentioned him a possibility of playing him a little bit over because of what you saw. Jk Dobbins who obviously Salihi could have had even a bigger game against Clemson but he was in and out of the the lineup with that ankle issue. So I you know Edwards Hilar- very similar type of player like Jackie Dobbins so Edward Solaire numbers might actually be attractive and honestly depends Adam as we're going through this now how much is offered I mean I. I wish it would go as deep. There's like maybe the Super Bowl I got. LSU defensive player that I wouldn't mind playing over It's their best. Pass rusher Kayla von Chase on who was engine? Mostly season not missed a few games and then was just less than a fifty percent or fifty percent less than one hundred percent for majority of the season only had two sacks the first nine games that he played last three games. He's got four and a half sacks so I'd be interested to see what his sack total is. I mean if you got got like a half a one sack maybe go over a guy like that Kahlon Chase on so for Lsu just depends on how you know deep they they wanna go here on the market right now. I mean West Gate when I said they got some player props available. It's like ten ten twelve props you can bet from. And it's Obviously your quarterbacks and running backs and a couple of wide receivers I liked the caleb on chase on one. I like that one a lot. I do tend to look for a lot of stuff on on the defensive side defensive sacks I love to play over under tackles with a lot of different is in. This is obviously the type of game where you can get a Lotta tackles from the safety from the linebackers. Virtually everyone in the back seven because these are two very explosive offensive teams. That are highly athletic. It's not going to be three yards and a cloud of dust Austr- either one of these offenses most of the game. You'RE GONNA get opportunities for guys like Isiah Simmons to make a lot of plays a grant to make a lot of plays Jacob. AK- Phillips said over one hundred tackles for Lsu this year. You're going to get guys like tanner. Muse through Tanner Abuse Damn well may have saved that game for Clemson by running down. JK Dobbins Albans in the first half. I WanNa his long runs. That was one of the Times. Ohio state came out with three in the red zone. Instead of seven interviews could very well have saved that game with that play. So you've got a lot of guys in the back seven here that you could take a serious look. Get that are going to get a lot of reps a lot of opportunities and in particular with Lsu shoe throwing the football with so many guys they can throw the football too. You know who's on Justin Jefferson. Who Clemson on him? WHO's on Jomar Chase? What do they do with Thaddeus Moss? I mean is that Tantrum uses responsibility. Is that Kvant Wallis's responsibility. These are things that you can kind of look at here. Let's we actually get get some lines out for these things. So game flow matchups all sorts of different stuff here field goal kicking is another example. Here you've got two teams that move the football up and down the field. Will they bogged down in the red zone or will they get done what they need to get done. Kate York missed five field goals for LSU DT potter Miss Eight for Clemson. Yeah so if you've got a situation where you think these teams are going to get bogged down in the red zone. You're going to get the field goal tries but will they be made. That's a big question here again. This is like the Super Bowl. Where you've got all these props available to you even if you don't like side or total you've got plenty of opportunities to get down on the game? The question is will these prospect available for it. I mean maybe a couple of books come out with it but yeah I I wouldn't mind. I love the field goal kicking aspect more high pressure game. Guys just haven't been relied on too often to kick field goals here because you got to such high scoring officiant offenses even in the red zone I wouldn't mind going over. You Know Misfield goal type of thing. It just depends on how exotic. They're willing to go here. Longest field goal is one that I generally like to take a look at here Kate York for Lsu nine of fourteen from forty or longer potter for Clemson five of nine from from forty or longer only three of six from thirty to thirty nine two. So you know longest field goal doesn't look like Clemson's going to be too much of an option they're potentially you know in a lot of different stuff you can take a look at it and hopefully all this stuff does come out here on Friday Saturday and hopefully we get some ample time to break these things down speaking of breaking things down. Let's go over the NFL playoff side. Here we'll start on Saturday with the first game three zero one three zero to Minnesota San Francisco seven painted across the offshore market with the forty niners home favourite forty four also painted across the market on the total red powers. What are you thinking about the first divisional round game here? I'm a little conflicted. I KINDA WANNA take Minnesota a hear me out. I just think number one Mike Zimmer. That goes from US Soda I think. He's the the most underrated coach in the NFL. How do I know that you just blindly betting against the spread since he started every single game since two thousand fourteen sixty four percent Santa against the spread? But yet you know as far as the betting public goes then you. Just don't hear about Mike Zimmer. Being one of the best coaches in the NFL Do you hear among among sharper batters. But I'll certainly isn't enough the fact that he's covered sixty four percent against non division opponents. Where there's you know unfamiliarity so there's not a lot of familiarity between the two teams He does even better seventy one percent against spread against non division opponents in his career. What we're talking? Forty three winters eighteen losers and three pushes seventy and a half percent For for Zimmer I just you know black adequate injury concerns that just came out yesterday for me the and that's why I'm Kinda him on here. You know feeling ankle injury yesterday in practice you you know digs was already missing practice. Because he's ill. I mean last week to me was the first time the vikings have been healthy. Looked like in a while the UN ten more receiving yards ars in the end. The previous five games combine. Dowling Cook look healthy if you told me these guys are healthy. I'll take Minnesota plus seven but after yesterday's news after after practice. I'm not willing to to make a big bet here on the Vikings Y- I think that's the challenge. Is this the ceiling this vikings team. It's very very high they don't blitz a lot so they're very good in their base defensive packages and we saw that plot last week with drew. brees not really looking the part not doing enough to go out there and win that football game we also saw kirk cousins not play great by any means but having Adam feeling was a tremendous help for him. Now one big difference is that we know about the forty niners and the edge pressure taking get the saints. Get a fair amount of pressure but they have to sell out a little but more in order to do it. So how does that factor into the game for Kirk cousins here. What is Delvin Cook? Do after looking okay. Last week he certainly didn't look explosive by any means. What does he do here against the forty niners? What are the Vikings? Do in terms of trying to get kyle route off free. Are they able to have success with that again. This this is one where you have so many individual matchups that can dictate the handicapped. And they're almost all on the Minnesota side and that concerns me because I feel like a lot of things things need to go right for Minnesota to be operating an optimal level here and right now with the injury with digs sick with the bad spot. The quick turnaround in the short time to game plan. I think it's really tough for Minnesota here this week I really do. So you're on the San Fran side I if I had to play the game I think I think so. I think maybe it's something that shows up a little bit more than the total market. The under is a pretty decent. Look here because I just don't think Minnesota's particularly explosive in this matchup against San Francisco. Let's go now on the flip side San Francisco. How much did the bye week? Help them because they were reeling defensively before that by the Senate enough to fix everything. Yeah I mean they might get some guys. I mean Quanta Alexander's been outlasts atlases. It looks like you might be ready to go. That could be a big factor. But I think you hit on it. I there's been quite the disparity with the forty niners start of the season one of the best defences if not the best defense in the NFL. They allowed eleven points per game which was first at the the first seven games last. Nine Games are allowing twenty six points per game. You Stack rank that as twenty fourth in the League. So what's the real truth of the forty niners defense. I twenty four by the reality is somewhere in the middle Maybe maybe a top ten type of defense. I mean the the market is telling you that the it seems like the sharper play here but I mean statistically speaking of for going off of what the forty niners have been defensively. The last night weeks of the season. The forty four and a half doesn't doesn't make much sense to me. Well this is also a forty niners team and I met you this. In the preview I wrote over at Bangor Book Dot Com seven takeaways in their last eight games. You don't early in the season their first eight games they had twenty takeaways so that was a big thing that we saw kind of Clip New England a little bit late in the year where they weren't forcing racing turnovers. They made it tougher on their offense. We saw what happened to them. The difference is San Francisco's offense. Got Better over. The course of the season Kyle Shanahan is brilliant. I will stand for that guy every time I possibly can. But the defense didn't force a Lotta takeaways late in the year and it hurt them and they gave up a lot more points. So we'll see what happens here if cousins can avoid the bad turnover. This is. I think pre-game this was hard to take a shot at pre flop. It's difficult handicapped. Maybe in game when you see how Minnesota comes out if there's any hangover from last week you you see San Francisco shake off the rust. Maybe live betting is just made for this game. Yeah let me ask you this. You know how much the San Francisco's inexperienced. As far as blouse go play into it. I mean I the first time they've been blouse in six years is a franchise couch. Shanahan has never been a head coach in the playoffs Jimmy Johns not been starting quarterback in the playoffs before does that factor in at all. Yeah I mean I think it has to absolutely has to. I mean especially because you're Minnesota I mean you you sell out against the run right you make Jimmy Garoppolo be you have to and not only that to speak of the inexperienced thing. You'll Roberts delays getting a lot of run for you to possibly being a head coaching candidate. It's something like that. Did the defense fall off in the second half largely because of those injuries and the lack of turnovers or did team start to would just more to what Soleil was doing. And if that's the case then what you'll then does Minnesota have a better game plan here. Following the blueprint from other teams. I don't necessarily know the answer to that. Somebody smarter than me might but again. That's maybe something that we see that we can take advantage from alive betting standpoint i. That's the wave of the future. Buddy I mean I mean we're divisional round. Now I mean in theory these sides total should be relatively sharp at at this point in the season. I mean if you're looking for anything. Prompt market in game stuff. I mean if you really WanNa have a chance to to make a quite a bit of money. I mean that's just where where we're going here. We're the values GONNA be out unless you're betting openers against a single book in one other thing that I heard over on the matchbook podcast and those guys do the phenomenal job at something. I listened to every week. I have no problem giving props to other places that are doing fine work and and the matchbook. NFL podcast is a really good one but one of the things that was mentioned on that last point we make this game here at and something that could be relevant to the total. The playing surface at Levi stadium is generally not good. I mean it's just not great at all Minnesota head a very good playing service in the superdome last week. Does that have an impact here in particular with feeling already being dinged end up with the ankle cook his was an upper body injury but still the playing surface is going to be a lot different here for this game than it was last week. Does that benefit it. San Francisco does that benefit the under again at this time of the year like you said side and total should generally be sharp as they're going to be so you've got to look at maybe some of these these things on the margin something. It's maybe a little bit more intangible navy. The playing surface kind of creeps up in this game two notes Kirk cousins and Minnesota under the grass under him to seventy one against number so traditionally not good undergrad under cousins and Minnesota to seven. ATS cousins. Is it going to make explosive plays. Isn't this arm is explosive. After the catch so that is limited for Minnesota in this game you know just another handicapping angle. Another factor that you WANNA keep you know as part of the equation here in this one game three zero three three zero four the first of the AFC Games here Tennessee in Baltimore Baltimore nine and a half or ten painted across the officer market total forty six and a half to forty seven down from the opener of forty eight which is kind of surprising here. Given the offense of efficiency of these teams in the second half of the year agree. But I think it's the right side I mean there's a little bit of weather here wind and rain a little bit. Maybe not as much rain but there's is some wind in the forecast here so that might be one reason why the unders getting a little bit play. I think another reason as you know obviously got to very run heavy type teams. Although I mean Baltimore's Ron having led the the NFL and scoring this year. I just think if Tennessee is going to have a chance was game plan while let's run Derrick Henry which they've done obviously last couple of weeks the tune of what like sixty six carries for him he hasn't had back to back thirty plus carries in his career going all the way back to a senior Henry our junior year in Alabama where we just had at one time is at the end of the regular season junior where he won the heisman trophy at Alabama. I expect him. They get a lot of Kerry's If you look at Tennessee's passing attempts looked like they've tried to protect Ryan Tannehill hair down the stretch certainly didn't last week and then necessarily we need them. They went in and one in New England. I just think I expect Derrick Henry to get his carries one I have to question is how effective Derrick Henry is GonNa to be you know trying to go third straight week here I I'm on the under here again. I'm not particularly if I had to play aside and Pry Bald War I mean. How could you faded team at this point? That's been just historically great last ten games. They're covering by an average of fifteen points for game. And this might be a scenario where the market. You just can't catch off fast enough to Baltimore this season. I mean you gotta a generational type of talent that we've never seen before I in Lamar Jackson Aksa. Maybe that we just don't see a market catch up with Baltimore fast so I'd Probably Lean Baltimore for for the under. I think what I'm hoping for here. I'm kind of hoping for an opportunity to Klay Baltimore second half in this game. Maybe hope that they come out a little bit slow a little bit rusty because again not just the by last week. But Lamar Jackson and company didn't play in week seventeen either so so they've got to come off the shelf with a couple of weeks of rust as opposed to it seemed like San Francisco or Kansas City where they actually had to play in week seventeen so now there is I factor that concerns me a little bit for Baltimore and again that would be concerning with a high number on this game of nine and a half or ten. The thing about it for me. Is that like you said it. Baltimore has been historically Arkley. Good John Harbaugh's one of the best coaches in the NFL and he actually understands Game Theory and man. We saw that play out a ton last week with guys just making incorrect incorrect decisions in fourth-down managing timeouts all that type of stuff. Baltimore has the coaching advantage. Here that could come into play later in the game as well I. My hope is to get a cheaper price up Baltimore second half if I had to play a full game like you. I'm looking at Baltimore. I just have to respect what they've done and Tennessee again. Tennessee goes on the road to Foxborough Beats New England. We got some later shirt. Money onto England. They're just kind of saying okay. Let's check and Brady at home in the playoffs. Offs so on and so forth. Do you see any respect going. Tennessee's way for beating New England in this number. The answer is no and there's a reason for that good point or just New England. Just that's not. Obviously it's not the New England of the last ten fifteen years so I mean there brady just Ah It's obviously that he could hit the wall and obviously what weapons wise the skill positions and whatnot offensively. Just nowhere near what they've been not that they've ever been Overly great outside Randy Moss and tight. End There so I agree that Tennessee's not getting overabundance of respect here. Would this line where it's at after a big win for for the titans last week. It's let me ask you this because I I've heard conflicting stuff on it but got an idea where you go. What was your thought process on? Rebel deciding to punt there with like four four or five minutes left in the game. Yeah I mean look I I guess it's one of those things where he wanted New England. Tom Brady to go down the field with a long field it again. I mean that's something that I talked about all throughout the season. New England was stunningly good in turnover margin and for most of the year they were like fifteen points per drive so they had a bunch of short fields in the best average starting field position the NFL and they were still fifteenth in points per drive. I mean hey if you WANNA make Tom. Brady's offense beat you with the lack of skill position guys that he has. I guess it makes some sense. You know I mean that makes sense when he saw the run two minutes off the clock. 'cause I mean the analytics thanks guys just killing variable I get it. I mean I guess you go for but isn't the one thing I don't think the analytics get sometimes time and place game flow flow. I mean it's fourteen thirteen. Neither team scored in the second. Half I mean I get it the analytics say go for it. They're trying to end the game but we haven't seen New England do anything An entire half I mean it. You really think they're going to go. You know sixty seventy yards and lineup for field goal. When they've had question marks field goal this season listen? I don't know that I mean it's not the same New England again offense not the same. Tom Brady is last ten fifteen years when he saw milk another two minutes off the clock. I didn't have a problem with the decision decision. Yeah no I mean I really didn't either and like you said it's it's you know. Sometimes it can be situational you know. And that's one of the things that I'm not going to go on this rabbit hole. I talked about all the time I baseball podcast but I am a sabermetrics guy and something that bothers me is that some people are black and white. The data says absolutely do this and I get it and by and large. I'm going to agree with the data and the analytic side more often than not but in that's situation against that team in those conditions with Brady having no weapons. There is more gray area than what is presented offended by the actual data. So well I you know blast coaches all the time while I blast managers for sacrifice bunting and this and that you know if you've got a right handed better up there against somebody who absolutely dominates righties. It may be too early to bunt but it may not be the worst decision in the world. It's it is kind of not a coin. Flip all the way but it's a gray area. If it's purely black and white like Sean Payton's timeout use inch that's one thing able to sign a punt. That's another so I'm not a hardline. Hardline analytics anything. I think in that situation against that opponent with what you know about that opponent. It didn't bother me fant and boy. I don't WanNa go down this rabbit hole but I mean how many world series titles the the the the dodgers have aren't they like to the teams that are purely early black and white analytics to a degree to a degree. Also you know you've got an Oakland operates. It's such a massive payroll deficiency. Yeah there are some extenuating circumstances there with that. But you know I mean. Let's see what happens with Baltimore. You don't mean Harbaugh is very in tune and with gay management. Let's see what they do against Kansas City next week. Let's see what they do. If they get to the Super Bowl and we'll see if some of those decisions do kind of wind up coming to the forefront and may ultimately decide not just the conference champions. Well maybe the Super Bowl champions as well game three zero five three zero six is Houston Kansas City chiefs anywhere from nine and a half or ten across the market mostly nine and a half total up from forty nine fifty one US probably my strongest opinion in the weekend. What's your take on the game with Kansas City? I mean does Shawn Watson. Come not giving up and coming from behind is certainly a concern. But I got Andy Reid off a bye right. He's exceeded expectations. That being the vegas line the spread by five and a half points for game but it was five and a half at Philadelphia in his career. It's been five and a half Kansas City off a bye. I think Kansas City might be. I mean I'd still PRII Baltimore one right now if I really did powering did college. Football Football But Kansas I mean I can't say he's better than what they were a year ago. They certainly are defensively. I've been last games are only allowing in about eleven and a half points regain that would ranked number one in the NFL than last year Q.. Model you know the even the advanced analytics said that they had a bottom five bottom six type of defense. It's a year ago mahomes healthy. He wasn't healthy. Obviously missed a couple of games those are factored in a full season stats. day missed a couple of games. And that's factored factored in bill. O'Brien When he's catching seven or more as you know? Come up short of expectations about eight and a half points per game By I just think Kansas City is clear the spirit team read off a by the. I'm GonNa lay it here and I usually don't do it. Yeah I like Kansas City a lot here in this game. I mean you've got a coaching advantage. You've got a Houston defense. That's terrible. They were dead last in the League in yards per play allowed. Kansas City should have a field day offensively again. A trend that Ralph Michaels tweet out earlier on in the season here. Andy Reid at the time. Twenty two four and one to the under off a bye well. They beat Oakland. They won that game forty two nine. They held Oakland. Nine points. Averaged fifteen points against per game with Andy Reid off a bye with both the chiefs in the eagles goals. If the totals fifty one and we're getting a high scoring game Andy Reid is going to be prepared for Houston who's scoring all the points. The answer is Kansas City. Yeah this thinks thinks should be a blowout. I think I really do feel that way. They blew had no problem blowing out. Indianapolis Indianapolis team that I really like last year. The division around Yeah I just show Watson's the only thing that scares me by me. I have so much respect for him and there is no quit there but yeah I think this is on paper mismatching matching only fact. It's not double digits. I mean let's keep a real Houston did win a King C.. Earlier this year is a four point dog in that game but I again again. Kansas City's much different team mahomes played but he wasn't one hundred percent and that one and Kansas City's defense certainly not not the same as what it was early in the season. So full agreements with me. Buddy Casey Casey no questioned my favorite side. Put on around. Yeah mine too. I mean. Let's see if we'll fuller's colors able to go. Maybe that'll kind of do something to the line. Maybe do something to the total here in this one too but to circle back to something you mentioned here I said it. What four weeks ago on the show that Kansas City would win at Baltimore in the AFC championship game? So I'm not going to back off of that because exactly what you said. People don't realize how vastly improved this defense defenses from last year. I mean they were top ten and adjusted net yards per pass attempt allowed this season. They were nowhere near that last year. I know they still struggle a little bit to defend the run and that would be a problem against Baltimore but I would give Kansas City Poland. Helluva chance you had Kansas City or Baltimore in the AFC Championship Syrup Game. Like four weeks ago I mentioned on the show We'll see all. Okay never mind. I was thinking some dumb. I was thinking it was like. How'd you have Casey as a two to see what New England losing outright in the final week of the season? But you have chances city beating New England and then beating Baltimore both on the road right. Yeah all right fair enough I I'm I'm just. I'm a believer in this Kansas City. Team I really am. I'm going to be on Casey neck. I mean obviously we'll see ooh that's good call Four four and a half. Okay maybe four Idaho. Well here's the thing right. I mean if Baltimore trucks. Tennessee and Kansas City blows away Houston like they should. I mean which team gets more respect. It has to be Baltimore right because Tennessee's better than Houston in the minds of a lot of people so so now I think there are about equal. I mean both those lines were right around three. We not now never mind when Houston play Tennessee when both teams were trying it was three right At Tennessee I get a tennis. I mean Houston went in when both teams retrying Houston went into Tennessee. One I mean the the the final week obviously Houston and care. Tennessee was but you know recency bias. I mean they might think Tennessee just crushed Houston so yeah I. I'm not sure the four and a half or good. Yeah I think so. I'd be willing to Bang Buddy before four and a half total. What low fifties? Yeah certainly certainly if he wanted to do the F. One hundred fifty two weather of I mean you always gotta worry about whether but that sounds about right when the championship game I one one about almost feels like a decade without New England might still be relatively really pumped about it. Oh I'd be fired up about I I I would be thrilled to see either. Lamar Jackson Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl. I think that would be awesome. Absolutely these two offenses you know. Read and the offense at Greg Greg Roman and Harbaugh put together. I mean that'd be fun. That'd be great from player props standpoint do for the Super Bowl. I think it'd be a lot of opportunities on taking advantage of some things things there. In any event three seven three eight Seattle in Green Bay the last game here of the divisional round starting to see some four and a half showing up out there in the market. Get on Green Bay four with extra juice kind of the predominant number total of forty seven on this one. What do you think I think that both teams are overrated? I wish they weren't playing each other You know both I mean you got Green Bay Seattle. Both route gained on the season. That's incredible it's only happened in the divisional. Our we have a match up with two teams have been outgained on the season. It's only happened one other time. This century is like a pitiful. Seattle Chicago bears divisional game from from several years years ago I'M GONNA lean under in this one. Early forecasts doesn't have like snow or anything but certainly very cold there underspend a play for Green Bay elastic game. Seven and one. I don't think Aaron Rodgers is the elite quarterback that used to be They rely on him to make you know elite throw maybe once or twice the game. But you're on a consistent in gaming a game out basis. He's just not what he was three four years ago. Russell Wilson doesn't have you know with the the running back injury concerns. I worry about the effect of the run game for Seattle. I don't WanNa take a big position on the side. I mean four four and a half ask sounds about right to me as far as the side goes under for me. Just the lean. I'm not going to be involved too heavily. Pre flopping these divisional games no. I'm certainly not going to be involved in this one. I mean I liked the under forty seven like you. I don't like either side like you said these are both teams and quite frankly. I'm not the least bit surprised. If both Minnesota and San Francisco would be able to beat these teams next week and I know Minnesota at the plate three straight road games and all that but I was saying before yeah right and I just don't think either one of these teams are very good. I just don't and the thing about Green Bay. The reason I would lean the green bay side and maybe take a live position. If I get an opportunity to get a better number. They have a running game. Aaron Jones can run the football. Aaron Rodgers is not the explosive player he used to be less. He's throwing it to Davante Adams they don't get a big plays in the passing game so the fact that Green Bay can run it with Jones. And you still have to concern yourself with Aaron Rodgers and that aura and that perception I that gives Green Bay a slight edge of Jones the focal point of the offense of game plan. Why not take the under so I just I don't like either one of these teams? I haven't all oh year. I just hope both hope that whichever team wins. That game loses next week. Because I don't want to see either one of them in the Super Bowl no offense to see ocsar packers fan I lay lay okay with the AFC KC Baltimore Lait three points in the Super Bowl. Why not it's true? I I guess I'd have to. I don't know I hope for San San Francisco I think San Francisco's kind of overrated. I know your big Shanahan guy but I think I'll I'll say of this. I'm looking to play the AFC. I'm looking to play Casey Baltimore in the Super Bowl. Let's just put it that way for me. No that's fair and there's gotTa be some look at headlines out there right where you can take the AFC AFC. There's got to be so. Yeah it's getting up there though now. It's like three. You could bet three. I think Last week I think it's higher now. Now look now gone and they were actually probably the second most. Maybe the most dangerous team in I agree with that. So yeah it's we'll see we'll see what happens here with these games and again looking forward to probably Baltimore in Kansas City in that. AFC Championship game and then any combination the nation in the NFC championship game would surprise me. A whole lot. Here when we reconvene on next Thursday's show red powers professionally effort over at Bradpowerssports.com. What's going run over there right now? Man couple of different things. I mean obviously newsletter that I talk about each and every week you can get that Available that special pricing offering offering last couple of weeks unfortunately a little too late for that but he still want to renew for the upcoming season.

The Game of the Century*

The Lead

The Game of the Century*

"Yeah well tomorrow is the big game unders that's right. LSU LSU versus Obama in wait for it it's the game of the century number LSU number two Alabama. I joined by Spencer. Tillman and not to rain on the parade eight here but the CFP rankings did come out on Tuesday and Ohio state is number one so this is actually a number two versus number three matchup in the poll that matters so oh you know game of the century might be a little strong. Well whatever you WANNA call it. This is the most highly anticipated matchup of the season and one of the things that makes this game so oh interesting is just how much these two programs have changed since the last game of the century back in twenty eleven so today we're going to speak with Stewart. Work Mandel the athletics editor in chief for College football about how these two. Sec powerhouses who were synonymous with tough defense and smash mouth. Football have become offensive juggernauts. Does anyone actually know what a Juggernaut is. I think it comes from Sanskrit and will be joined by Dan. Rubenstein host of sports wars is and the solid verbal podcast for an in-depth preview of the game from the athletic. I'm could beat the Davidson under skelter. It's Friday November eighth and this is the lead it felt like something great was there is something about the emotion and it was not good. This is in the room Stewart the game tomorrow is expected. Wanted to be a very high scoring affair but it wasn't that long ago that that never would have been the expectation in an Lsu Alabama game. Could you just take us back to the first first game of the century while in twenty eleven. LSU In Alabama one or one and two in the polls the SEC was I was at the peak of its dominance and there was an incredible amount of talent on the field that day. I believe there were forty five players from those those teams ended up getting drafted including nine. First rounders no touchdowns were scored in that game. It goes to overtime even and still the game guest decided on field goals again it's going to be propelled wing and the kicker through. All of our in the final score is nine to six. And what was the style of play play that day. Alabama LSU were really mirror images of each other. They both played a very traditional smashmouth style. quarterbacks on both sides really struggled pulled that night intersected nothing like the wide-open spread offenses that. Were starting to become popular in other parts of the country then and are pretty much the norm now everybody in the SEC prop that up as of yet another example of just how the SEC plays real football we play defense in this conference. Dirty Tough Brumby. SEC and you know the two coaches kind of personified that style of play in many ways in particular Nick Sabin who is very much known as a defensive specialist. Yeah Nick Saban's teams would almost always have the number one or two ranked defense in the country play a lot especially Russian defense because everything is based on situations nat twenty. Eleven team was the best of all them. They over the course of the season allowed fewer than ten points per game which is just astonishing and around that time college offensive systems. Were really starting to change. Well Hurry up. Offenses fences had started to really take off in college. Football somewhere in the two thousand five to two thousand seven range especially in the big twelve conference but nobody has seen anything anything quite like what the system chip Kelly brought to Oregon third global hyper speed for blur speed. As they call it far for branding they would call that the blur offense. It was impossible for defenses to get lined up in time to stop these these guys because they would move so fast they snap the ball so fast they would wear defenses out the fact that he went to a place like Oregon not a traditional blueblood. I'd certainly like now Obama and took them to the national title game in two thousand ten ship. Two years back deficit job come the deduct. Their fans will explode. If they get the field it was really a testament to how revolutionary system was and over the next couple of years. Nick Saban Alabama have a couple of surprising losses they fall to Texas. AM led by. Johnny Manziel a team. That runs runs a hurry. Up Offense Staff redshirt freshman. Johnny Manziel got off to a brilliant start start so when they knocked off Alabama. That was a pretty seminal moment I would even say the next year in two thousand thirteen Alabama one but it was forty nine to forty two Johnny Manziel put up almost six hundred yards of offense by himself. These were unthinkable things that that. That's what possibly happen to nick. Sabin defense and that same year they lose to Auburn another team that had ditched the huddle it and so it's around that time that nick. Saban starts to begrudgingly realized that this is soon GonNa take over his conference He very famously said at one points joints. Is this really what we want football to be and the fans around the country universally said yes. Yes we want. We like watching touchdowns we like watching Johnny Manziel. Zell put up these superhuman highlights. What do you think he was initially so hesitant to change coaches are pretty stuck in their ways they come up a certain way they believe? In in a certain thing he obviously had had a lot of success playing football certain way he won three of the four national titles from Two Thousand Ninety Two thousand twelve. I'm doing it the way he always had but to his credit he was able to acknowledge that the game is changing. And I need to change to. You pointed out in the past that even the high I school kids that Nick Sabin was recruiting around this time. We're coming from schools that were using this new. Hurry up offense so it was like with the players in his pipeline. Were prepared for the offensive system that he was hesitant to implement in. Some cases coaches adapted the system. For that reason. That the the guys we WANNA recruit already play the style system. They WanNa play in college. So we're going to become a hurry up team so nick Sabin you know. He remains stubborn. Earn for a little while but he eventually adapts and he brings on a new offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin Lane. Kiffin was a very controversial higher at the time he had been fired at. USC is head coach. The reform very very dramatic fashion on the tarmac of lax after a loss and he's just a really polarizing personality in general but he definitely started to help modernize Alabama's offense going to a no huddle Kiffin was there three seasons and by the third season in two twenty sixteen now they are starting to do what a lot of football teams were starting to do which is run. RPO plays basically. It's two plays in one The quarterback order BAC goes in with both run play. Anna pass play and will decide based on reading the defense which one to call. So it's a it's really hard for the defense is to figure out which play it's going to be and they did that with Jalen hurts. He leads them to the national title game as a true freshman. It took a peek down field. Now just barrels forward wanting pets legend is board here tonight in Tampa in Jalen hurts even when he's not really all that developed as a passer just because those RPO plays could be so lethal when the quarterback can both run and pass so Alabama in Nick Sabin decided to start modernizing their program meanwhile the Lsu coach Les Miles. He doesn't he. He kind of doubles down on the old school style of play. I'm the head coach. Lsu I will be the head coach at Lsu. I have no interest in talking to anybody else. And when you look back at that game the the Second Alabama Lsu game in two thousand eleven were Lsu gets embarrassed loses twenty one nothing. I just remember being in the press conference after that game and he was getting ripped criticized by a couple of local reporters on new Alabama's defense lepage's dominant Ridiculous five first downs. I mean that was the beginning of a long descent for Lsu for less miles els where first of all they start losing Alabama every year. And they're not really a national title contender anymore so with each passing year the fans fans who get more and more frustrated haywire aren't we evolving and every year less miles would say it's going to be different. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA open things up you watch. And then they go out and play play and it would look exactly the same and so less miles gets fired and then in two thousand sixteen at ores around gets promoted to head coach balance. You what kind of a makeover does he give the team. Yes so does Ron. He himself immediately goes about trying to modernize. LSU's offense they got a grad transfer from Ohio state named Joe Burrow. He mostly put up which we can serve you Kinda pedestrian numbers twenty eighteen. But you could see okay. He's an upgrade upgrade from the guys they've had before and then this past off season they brought on a new passing coach. Who has generated a lot of buzz? Joe Brady takes shot look at Lsu. We're always GONNA take shots down the field but we're going to be diverse diverse offense. Look what you see New Orleans. This was not a conventional higher by any means. Joe Brady Very Young Guy He only turned thirty this season and he'd never been in any sort of prominent on field role with a football team. I he was at Penn State. Then goes to the saints for two years. It was just Kinda happenstance that in the summer of twenty eighteen. LSU invited him him and several saints assistants to come in. And Joe Brady gets up there and starts explaining. RPO's to the LSU staff and everybody's just blown away by how knowledgeable well he is by what a good communicator. He is editor on hires him to be his passing game for Nader and all of a sudden here. We are eight games in two thousand nineteen. Joe Borough is considered to be the highland front runner number four the day. Aw He's gone from fifty seven percent completion percentage to a seventy seven percent completion percentage. He's already broken the school record for passing in touchdowns in a season and this all seems to have happened overnight so for Lsu fans there have been several years in a row. It's GonNa look different and and every year. No nothing look different this year. Not only does it look different. They're one of the best if not the best passing teams in the country. Jeff Jeffrey Joe Borough just having an unbelievable year putting up record setting numbers I but then on the other side of the ball. You also have another top top quarterback Aloe Smith Alabama breaks to has been. You're one of the biggest stars in College football for the last couple of years and Alabama's Obama's had decent quarterbacks in the past but they never had a superstar quarterback like this and he's really is remarkable to watch he's a very unique talents he makes throws you wouldn't think possible to make talent that is just magnificent to behold there's no other way to describe it the exhaust tips. The BIG WRINKLE is. He injured his ankle a few weeks ago. But that's really the story of this whole game how close was to full. Strength is to Because he he is Alabama's offense and so stuart we've seen this remarkable transformation in both Alabama and and Lsu. These programs have had to adapt to the modern game to keep winning. Do you think college. Football is still evolving. And how might the style of play change going forward. I think the thing that would affect it. The most is if there's ever any sort have movement to change the rules to till things back a little bit toward the defense so I think the offense is will continue to evolve. They'll continue to get more and more powerful. quarterbacks are only getting more skilled at efficient at some point much like when the NBA Made you know many years ago. change the handshake rule to make things easier for the offense. I wonder if college football will ever think about doing something to go back in the other direction. And give the defenses of Ray Stewart. Thanks so much for joining us and enjoy the game.

Now is the a host of one of our partner shows here at one three sports wars and host of the solid verbal podcast which is pretty much the best college football podcast around Dan Rubenstein Hidden. Hey how's it going. I'm GonNa Blurb that you are now. Officially part of Solid Verbal Lor joining the legions of the fans Sudan. You have been to Alabama football games in the past. What is the scene GonNa be like in Tuscaloosa on Saturday? It's going to be madness. This is is it not that other big games in the SEC. Especially in places like Alabama analysis. You are not big deals but this is the game that is circled nationally nationally every year. So you can imagine the the type of fervor that is that is going on locally and you know an Alabama game is a terrific time. It's not quite LSU issue in terms of in Stadium Energy in volume but for a huge Alabama game especially since this one kicks off in the afternoon. You'RE NOT GONNA have people passing passing out from tailgating. There's there's going to be just the right amount of of juice heading into the game so it's going to be loud. It's going to be passionate. You're going to see those. The streamers and pompoms in in the crowd. It's it's as good as college. Football gets and you know it's a really old match up. These two teams have been playing each other since since eighteen ninety-five but it seems like it hasn't really been until the last fifteen years or so that it's really turned into something that feels like a rivalry. It seems like that's largely because of Nick Sabin. Yes absolutely so as I assume people are most people know Nick Saban coached at Lsu. Took them to and won a national championship chip in Baton Rouge before going to the Miami Dolphins for a couple of years then coming back to college for the Alabama job and a lot of what made this rivalry a little bit. Dormant was the fact that there weren't the type of stakes. There are in years like this. That Alabama was down during times of the nineties in the early two thousands thousands with some underwhelming coaching hires performances and same goes for Lsu Lsu really didn't come into their own in the modern era until nick. Sabin took over the program coming down John from Michigan State. And you know really increasing everything within the program whether it's budgets whether it's the quality of assistant coaches the quality of recruiting and obviously obviously took them to the promised land and then Lsu is able to to keep that up with less miles who himself. He won a national championship and then LSU guide a little a bit stale and again. It's the Alabama bar that LSU grew short of each and every year. They were shrinking away from that bar and they lose a number of those stray. That was twenty nine. Six game was the last time. LSU Did win that game and so if you are unable to compete against Alabama as as an LSU coach you're not going to be an Lsu coach for particularly long and at ours are on. The current coach has been really good for the Tigers but again they've been shut out two of the past three years so as good as Lsu has been. That's always in the back of people's minds so the stakes are certainly hire these past fifteen years but yeah this this rivalry goes back a long long way. Well let's just talk through the players a little bit I of course all all the chatter here is is about to. What's the latest on his ankle? So the latest. Is You know as people know. He's had a procedure. The tight rope procedure to sort of tighten things up and A speed up process for rehabilitation rehabilitation. So it's his right ankle and as a left handed thrower. That's the foot. He steps in with the leg steps in with the ankle he plants and that is going control accuracy that is going to control the the way he drives the ball downfield. And so it's a big deal that if he is off this Alabama offense is going to be off. This is the best offense in the country and I know people will point out that Alabama has not necessarily played a huge slate of games in terms of quality opponents. But they have been other-worldly other-worldly they have the best collection of receivers in the country. And if two is off his game and the ball isn't consistently getting to those receivers and it's either he has to leave leave the game or e- his backup. Jones has to come in. Alabama is significantly worse. Doesn't mean they can't win the game but to his ankle is going to decide side. Basically all of what Alabama can or can't accomplish Alabama can run the ball really well but if Lsu understands that to us is not able to fully lead this Alabama offense they will load the box and fully key in on the Alabama rushing attack which will significantly change Alabama is capable of doing offensively so the the latest is that Nick Saban expects to play to give it a go and he's been practicing which is generally a good sign how mobile. He's been how much like himself. He looks like in practice. Those are closed. Nobody fully knows outside of the program but word is that he's going to play. And if he is at seventy seventy five eighty percent that could be enough Alabama to get them over the top but that is that is the Lynch pin of this game. And you know in many ways. This is a match up of two star quarterbacks quarterbacks and on the other side of the ball we have joe borough what. Are you going to be watching for with him on Saturday so first off the addition of Joe Brady as the passing game coordinator. This is a quarterback friendly offense the he can he is told to get the ball out of his hands quickly and to just trust the receivers to trust. The offense obviously has also been been running the ball quite well with running back Clyde Edwards Allaire. And so there's balanced to this. LSU offense there is there speed to this LSU offense and there's creativity and he's he's always been somebody to show out really well in big moments but he finally has the creative minds behind him he you know. He was very promising when he was at Ohio. Ohio state before he transferred to Lsu and he actually came out this week that he played in this match up last year with a separated shoulder so questioning his toughness and his his will to To sort of win and play through pain is I mean. There's no question about what he's capable of. So the big leap has been how how creative this offense has been and really the emergence of these receivers football becomes a lot easier when the players around you are playing at such a high level. The offensive line is blocking conform. Better than they were last season. And it's just sort of a perfect storm of everything clicking for this offense around him and then what are you going to be watching for in this game strategy wise. Is there anything that you think might happen or that. You're curious to know might happen. Sure yeah the I mean. The receivers on both sides going up against two very good secondary's Alabama year in year out has pretty incredible if not the secondary in the country. Because that's Nick Saban bread and butter. He came up as a defensive backs. Coach he he is sort of known as their de facto defensive backs coach so when you have a football mind like that focused on your position group. It's going to show out pretty well. So Alabama is is loaded there and Lsu may have the best safety in the country and grant delpit they have the best and most promising freshman corner and Derek Stink. WHO's been really electric around around the ball and guarding that? Some of the nation's best receivers so that the the push poll of receivers against secondary's on both sides to me is fascinating and then is Lsu. Well as you able to take advantage of what I guess. It's all relative but a perceived Alabama weakness in playing the run so Alabama's allowed some longer runs this season season even though they haven't played a number of teams. So I'm I'm exceedingly curious about what. LSU looks like running the ball against this Alabama front. Dan Rubenstein host of of sports wars and the solid verbal. Thanks so much for joining us.

Ep 21 | Phils LSU Excitement, Jase's Footraces, Al's Football Career

"On a chain uh what about you and I love this time of year because it's everybody's getting ready for hunting season and yeah football's either starches also so since I've been in Texas. Let's get the the tail report TIA report. Actually the the real. You'll reconnaissance is taking place today is Monday till season opens Saturday. When you get down to four five six days ace out you began to ease around not spoken and not spook them. RECON missions were we're. We're watching volume so last month we saw was about twenty and they came out of the ELM. Ho I'm sitting on a pipeline watching down in there and about twenty got out of their stone had seen about forty earlier that morning on the Little Myers whole so forty sitting on the Miso twenty sitting on so I know they're around there. We saw COUPLA A COUPLA singles. Come down the pipeline. We're you're brushing that duck by. We're rushing duck blinds and recant recon on the T. O. where they are basically scaring in a mall so pretty close because once you either something happened in order them to take okay what I did is last year. We had the worst. He'll season ever think well we we we we sixteen days and I think we shot fourteen deal. We've got one yeah. That's pretty tough average. That's one gumbo season. The last time we burned was it was year before last where I left the water on the whole like I did this year. Well there are more to your down there. It's brings me to my point. I never schedule any any events during teal season duck season because a hunt that's just the way it is was always been but since we had such a pathetic till's is year in a moment. A weakness is scheduled to event back to back one week. I'm going to North Carolina and then I'm headed into Kentucky on the way back stone and I will give you an update a briefing on how many to we kill without you being there. I know you're GONNA kill 'em because has last year. We had no water in this year. We had water for nine months. He didn't take it all precisely which basically until season whoever's got the water wins wins does he at an Israeli index's overall about unless you have too much water well as you have to have a tremendous millet crop. I I planet the silt from the backwater the muck. I used a wheeler with tracks on it instead of wheels tracks. Don't don't bury up like tires tires you. You couldn't have done it. Just how many times have you buried a tractor or bulldog lower than I won't admit but but the bottom line is that this track these tracks on one of these four wheelers and is able to plan it and I said no fertilize. The seal was plenty fertile but amazingly. I looked at it though I mean it's been up about among the water stays so late. I didn't have time to try to dry it up and disk it up. I said we just I've got to go with. It was amazing to me just as an insider but also as an outsider because I don't work like you guys do people watching right and listening. you know you think you we walk out there and you just getting your mind start she all but I mean the process that happens to prepare land. Land is incredible. I noted is that during the process on brushing the blinds shoring up the duck blinds patching him up replacing floors floors get them all brushed if you say it real quick but fifty or sixty duct lines to haul enough brush down there to get them all brush. We just take one at a time. It's a hundred and five in the shade at one o'clock in the evening so we go early but I have noticed Al that I have not laid my eyes on one Jason Robinson during big blind brushing process hair. He's you to their speak out somewhere and not be there on opening day. I normally don't see him or his buddies stone. The entire bland true. I usually I'm down here helping this year. I've had some other things going on so opposite Jay down here. Numerous has been down a few times because Jay is in in Soviet shape. Now you know he's turned into boxer. I think he started off just trying to leave some lay. Unique is the bar man so he's Aspen muscles some taking muscle man we made it has best of hall willows. I'm trying to get to you know everybody's ended a UFC fighting now these squaring off kicking and fighting and submission submission to Jitsu so I want us to do like a local fight between stone and the unit I would. I would pay money to to see that fight because as difference. They're both into it the eunuch you know he's. Kinda looking like a spider man right. He's Ninja style where stone. I think it would be more of a bruiser but I mean you normally. I'm not into watch men fight but I'm saying I might pay money to why you know. The yanic vs Dante has always said Eddie's has anger management issues quit playing golf he couldn't he cannot play the damn. The Eunuch is the opposite. He's a meek and gentleman gentleman. I think he's not mean enough to beat stone even though he's Gannon Bay when they found something in this working out and you know like of course downs a veteran and the military they go up there you know broke him in made him whatever well yeah and then he'd let himself go for a few years and now he's go the other way just came out. Afghanistan now apple up the driveway because we live right next to each other. I pull up in my driveway. He's out there. It's one hundred degrees. He's he's bobbing and even sweat pouring off. I mean he about two weeks ago. I'm the neighborhood wow look up. I just seem running through the are you know law. pull up around win. I said what happened and he's we Toma Yeah. I thought he was something happened in the neighborhood center yeah he's like No. I'm just running staying in shape. I said well that's Kinda dumb doing the middle of the day one hundred one degrees servers. Here's what's Donald says about as you can never win whether Roberson because when I was fat you know an out of shape they were like son. You're fat out of shape your pathetic. He's a then I get into shape. I'm in the best shape of my life is. What are you going through a midlife crisis? I mean town back.

There's a hall Jay's me but just come out of the run around dragging. I can't I'm out. I just finally only figured out that I'd much rather catch fish and hunt ducks and then throw touchdown passes. I just had a bigger thrill. Rail out in the wild is funny 'cause 'cause Brancheau. He basically told that when he weird forty years ago his first book when he made it in the pros use them one draft pick he said what do you got a hundred thousand dollars spread out over ten years. The big money wasn't flowing nineteen seventy. It wasn't quite the same all they're making multi million. Elliott just signed a ninety million dollar hole now for you know Twenty Min- if that kind of money was had been a little different motivational China two or three. He's he's said that you that was your motivation which he was glad add like he was trailing those stores even back then so it's funny because the Addison expires of you but when Maxi Lambreau was your coach one of your coaches his his son-in-law Causey was the coach Westerner High School when I was there in the late seventies yep so we're got to him could so he knew about you.

I find her own way so they got a visual and they didn't even ask me. If I could throw or anything it was just people don't realize allies something you're born with the ability you are born with the ability to throw a football or baseball. You don't learn how to do that right right. You either have it with you. When you're six four to thirty and you marry a woman that's four eleven ninety pounds your what what what comes out of it five nine gene and slow. That's what Jeff just said that this weekend. We were Nelson Jet Liz in detail. Mommy said thanks to dad married and you. None of us had a chance to tell her that. Mike are so mad eh. She's a great mother. Okay going on now. I was telling you look so is the first. LSU Game I've ever gone to that was on the road and AH got invited my sister actually lives in Austin which is MRIs. Am Moiseyev and some another. They're like you know. I got access to a sweet and they invited you. Missy come watch. LSU Game Well I. I said I'm out because I thought why would I want to go. Be a room with a bunch of Texas.

So missy wanted to go and I was like and and then I start you know. LSU looked so impressive in week. One and I'm like man this bit epic battle so I mean and so we went and I'll Tayo was quite the game and I was so it was so interesting to see how other universities you know just have their game day and the facilities there were awesome and the people were actually awesome you know. Lsu I'm been plenty of Lsu game where they lost away gets grumpy. You're just wanting to get but you know the Texas fan it was they were the Texans had stashed the Lsu fan hobbies Abbas lived. We're always Lsu never even had a band of never seen the opposing band in the upper deck me into this game but I won't like this guy drops a horn on somebody they're coming in their droves alight lane and over the this can't can't be able to hear the band was Lsu which was the one good thing about it was the way the game turned out so exciting and they'll as you one is that three thousand we may have been stashed away but the viewer in that but it was party time now it was it was really awesome but I I've already talked to some people in Athletic Department. LSU AND FOR THE FIRST TIME NEXT EAR 'cause they always put the ban the south end zone tags. Do they're going to be up in the upper how it's going to be pay only three thousand season bands going up but it was it was also game battled back and forth but everybody was like what defense and I'm like. It's one hundred in two degrees. Golan stand twice in the first quarter well then they just start falling out like flies could cramps every other place somebody Monday was down this boo boo and they're like you know they're doing it on purpose.

Didn't nobody died another reason. I chose ducks football well and by the way mom told me because because mom made the wisest Mama's going with us to the game which would have been a disaster but she wisely backed out because she never done it but she told me she's on the local news at fifty eight amulets you know deals to fans from the stadium because the heat so it was incredible gaming. I was pretty pretty well mannered until I was wondering I was that was my question for you. Go nuts because I did.

I literally went sealed again. Yeah lost it. Did you know you try to put your fears. I thought I'd broken my hand but I didn't care as in that weird moment where I'm looking around for somebody to share the MRI was like too far away and when I finally gather myself and low by all these people that I'm why they're just sitting there and I was like the but everybody from Lsu who are fans heard because I was screaming so loud and so they little bit when they're going to do there.

I guess truth more hair bigger so keeps K. E. P. S. dot com. Get your hair going again. It was fun. I enjoyed it as well so so we're talking about. Moses Badra to get get into the meat of the matter last time we sorta laid out you kind of just following this a stream of these patriarchs these people that God raised up and so we're at the point now in the book of Exodus if you're follow along with us and we've noted that God it usually uses the last people that you would think that from our perspective to lead you know his will wheel that that that's what you keep seeing and it always seems like almost an impossible situation and Moses certainly was that because he was as we described last time he was basically marked to die you know along with all the other Hebrew baby floating downloading down the river and any winds up being the man you know is the journey to get there is pretty and credit Hollywood. If Hollywood did this. That's L. listing. I know and it's funny they did. They did it member. It was Batman Played Moses but I don't know the Christian Bale but it was so do you ever see now. I never watched it was was always a little weird about those kind of movies because it just kind of like an Noah thing when they had the kind of liked it. It was Kinda Comical Aniko but the rock monsters and I don't know I see from steady see where the get those ideas and you know we've all with Hollywood. We get it you know but what I do like. is they try you know. I think a lot of people in religion tried to get everything exactly right and I think a lot of news. Stories are basically giving the overall narrative of what happened. You get the principles because in the end if you miss how it relates to Jesus send us. Will you pretty much missed it anyway. Why sit there and argue an hour about what the town was that he will from here but you see that a lot in religion? Get the morning you know. I'm like if you're at your chart and you're doing like a nine weeks series on Paul's missionary journeys. Ah I think we've missed the point here you know you better get in what he was sharing instead of the exact location and the tools geography Agatha lesson but I'm telling you say that you would think this common sense. Hey Go visit a local church near you and see the kind of stuff that you you hear and you wonder why they're not growing doing so. Moses in exodus three basically gets to the burning Bush was just kind of where we left off last and he gets a direct communique from the Almighty in a Bush. That's on fire. They won't burn up which you think about everything. They're fixing to go through. I thought about this later. After we talked about that it is basically representing you know when you see a bliss that should be burning up and and it does and you know what they were fixed to go through which you have every every reason on what's fixing to happen to quit and give up because this is fixed and get tough but you don't you know. I just thought about that. How that applies in life that that God is able to give you some some kind of visual image like that where this should destroy you but if you're with with me you will survive. I think that's a subconscious you know. We read it as a story but if you actually saw that you start thinking about that you know he probably thought about about that light well. What does it mean why why's God representing himself in a Bush that doesn't burn up that should be destroyed Roy but he has the ability when you think something is over. You think it's going to be destroy. He has the power but who survive. I think it's a good subliminal subconscious mess it is and from Moses perspective thing about this. He's eighty years old. You know he had been a young man. You know zero to forty raised in Pharaoh's house. He had an altercation that we talked about last time he winds up in the desert for forty years. Thank him basically any chance he had any sort of normal life or back doc was in Egypt. That's gone forty years in the desert you being here day. You're seventy four. If all of a sudden this would happen now to you. You'd already lived your whole life and all of a sudden guys. Oh wait a minute. I got I got something. You hadn't even thought about about a task that's right so just the age factor of where he's at so he sees this and basically he's told by God. You're going to go back to Egypt and you're. GonNa Leave my people out Moses who by now you know one time. He seemed like he says says about himself. He could never speak very well but the balances earlier he wa- Hebrew says he was a young man he was strong in character and conviction was able to speak but he's he's lost all that and so now he does need more to do it he said. Can you send somebody else because it's kind of like you. Were talking about it. He didn't want to do it himself and so the Bible says says the Lord was angered it. It May Guy Mad at him. He said wait a minute now. Is this in chapter three. We're talking about when he said Yeah. We and we said I am who right. I am who I am which is basically God saying you know when you say who Emma Light. We're a proper now you know the name. Moses and he's like I'm I'm a noun and if you think about it and now not a verb and I have no time constraint all right. I'm an adjective adjective also and when you think about that grammatically on right he was saying. I'm like a living organism awesome you know I 'cause I am who I am this same thing of Jesus. Tell Him I am well and things about John has always been invisible. There's you know instill is in the sense of people see and communicate but there's no actually. CNN which I thought was interesting that that verse in Hebrews needed read that I think so I mean because you know if you're like me I kinda now. I'm not a real smart. Fella people listen and see thank you start reading exodus. What what is you get bogged down in the details and the Hittites and the you know presides all this but when you go to me with the presides hides maybe I'm not sure that's an official group of people that was a but you go to Hebrews which I think mirrors the exodus exodus experience and the law the giving of the law and then that beyond the shadow to Jesus coming. Would you agree with that and you have this in chapter what you call this the hall of faith the account the Hebrews Hall of fame so you basically they sum up Moses just in like four verses which Jio makes you think how you'll be summed up at the end if you could even make the book right but it does have a line that is also a me. It starts off in Twenty Three A. C. Twenty twenty four it said Hebrews Loan Twenty four or twenty five it says he chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than than to enjoy the pleasures of CNN for short time which which you kind of describe that line which goes in I mean I think that's something noble to be shared right but then against twenty seven he says by faith left Egypt not fearing the king's anger. He persevered because he saw him who is invisible. I'm in now. That is a statement when you think about how he got through all this will what was his secret. What are their life lessons that that we can see really that describes all of us and what we have in Jesus. We are literally walking around on earth. Trusting something that is invisible which sounds crazy to the world but us is just standard operating procedure seen. Did you do see the qualities you can see them and John the Potts said when you see people and they're known for their love for God and one another. He said that's when you see God. That's how you see right. You see him by people's live. That's try lighter. The world's sought of year we can show them. God but we better be on our game and we better watch our mouth in. What's what we do as we walk by. Faith goes one MISSTEP and they're gonNA say Nah. Now I mean we had the life is his a statement miss on memory add the man and the quail you know that what he was looking at it not like. Oh this is cool. The bread fallen one of phenomenon on he was like now this God and ultimately that would be related to Jesus remember I can't Theon that example when of Moses and it said Godwin pleased with them but it said they drank from the water the the water that came out of the Rock. I'm not sure where that story is an exodus but but it says an an is it I ten or something I missed him. It says that rock that accompanied them was Christ right and I also so you remember that and I think it's Joe Four. He became flesh. He was with them or yeah and you remember John Faubert Jesus talking and they were having this debate over trust him Moses roses or him and Jesus is like you're reading the scriptures thinking you're GonNa get eternal life and you're missing the parts about me. Yep You know you can't get eternal off without me but then he said an interesting thing he said Moses the one putting your trust in he wrote about me yeah which is one of the things they're like what thousands of years ago Jackie Moses wrote about you well. You're you're someth member in John. Eight whenever he would they would tell me Abraham which of course predates Moses and they were like we know who Abraham is. We're children children of Abraham. But who are you and that's when Jesus said before Abraham was born. I am which goes back to that same context that burning he made a statement. I am the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob was. There's been a long time since they had been on the earth and most people say were God would have said I was there. God maintenance now right but God was telling Moses I that Bush. I'm just letting you know I am their God. They're not dad. That's right there on the other side and their they physically have died but they're alive which is two thousand years later. Jesus uses the exact same language language his out is he said to him he's he's not the god of the dead but of the living sorry him they all are alive. Yeah that's why you're looking sea and Moses standing standing up here on the Mount of transfiguration a body some kind of body or glorified body any larger standard Tago Ziza's thousands of years look after they supposedly we're on the Earth you sat one of my gods showed him then and there are glowing those the apostle they're looking Peter Namli whoa right but that's also why this is the most the most powerful organism own planet earth the church because men when Jesus said you you know it. It's like the spirit you you see it affects but you compared it to the win and and basically yeah the wind is invisible sublime you can look at it and you know the wind's blown because the trees are moving right yep but that's the same way the Holy Spirit of God works. You see the fix but you it's invisible you. You can't that's why people try to destroy destroy the true church while the the last thing they need to go to church buildings because God done living buildings you know I it's invisible visible. That's why I think it's also you know thing to say about. Somebody's life who went through all what Moses did. He made it through because of his faith. That's why when you hear people that are kind of chasing the miraculous you hear this a lot in the religious world and I I believe God works super naturally but when you get to miracles where something physically happens that is undeniable that it was a supernatural act of God. What we hat through faith is actually more powerful than that? That's why I said without faith. It's impossible to please get loss if Jesus appeared as were seated at this table talking and these Max if he appeared six feet right over here if he just became visible five feet from this table and he looked at us and he said you guys are doing wail peace be with you and he went choice he disappeared now we would look at each other and own air we would say did am. I dreaming or did you see what I just saw in. You said I saw what you just yourself and Jason. Say Hey listen you say why would he do that from time to time because when the audience heard and US discussing this good night. Did you see that that was Jesus himself. They would say you talk about a bunch of lunatics. The one appear would cause us more trouble way more trouble than it's worth because he's the point it wouldn't take anything away. Would you still have your faith in the death of Jesus for your chance even if he did appear to you ever fifteen minutes your faith. That wasn't save you. Here's a hearing to you you say his death on a process what saved you would still have to believe that he died for he was buried and raised from the dead so so y appear to somebody forever fifteen minutes when they already believe because they've read the story and they're looking back at how the story came to fruition which redoing allowed to prove your point. Jesus was here you know for thirty. Three years are years. He went around doing miracles doing all these things now and the all the people that whilst him when he went into crucified where were they. I mean yeah they had seen the whole thing unfolds without the road at the row even even after his resurrection it just see him. I tell you what I believe in him but that's what the atheists would say. I said no you were plenty of people two thousand years ago that saw him embrace the dead heal the sick. I mean feed five thousand. He said well how come that didn't do it for him. He fried the FIG tree and they come up Thursday. But what authority are you doing. These these things instead of just believing if you touch a tree and it just fries it like roundup on at us I would be sitting there. Thinking is enough for me but they were saying. We're about what authority you did. You the fig tree while he just thought it was a treat I mean they passed off all the miracles as tricks which same thing happened today. There's a lot of people claiming all this is going on but I'm saying to. You need to see a miracle today. Hey if you have a letter from God Almighty that's known the more you read this the harder it is to get around it because of all the details the the merit from the history. Dr Affi of the Bobble you it just all the pieces start filling getting what we're talking about when Moses I mean you realize this was is all a shadow of experiencing the presence of God I mean he gave the law because I just think that they gave the law which went wind amounts on happen even in in the book of Exodus Well. It's it's going to happen and nineteen and twenty nine twenty but thank about my point is think about why gave the law he gave the law so that there would be a way to have sacrifices offered to experience the presence of God to Vam to Jesus is the exact word right but in the moment for them they still got the presence of God because they had his law then they had the steps that you that you have that he required with his Agra fasces to get to God who would then be in the holy of holies and in in Hebrews talks about all that but my point is we get to have that in Jesus because of the foundation that was laid there and you need a sacrifice but they still got the presence of God right. How about the Apostle Paul said although I'm less than the least of all God's people this grace was given me to preach to the gentiles entitles here we all are two thousand years later. We're still here the unsearchable riches of Christ and to make plain to everyone the administration certain of this mystery. It's a mystery what which for ages Pash was kept hidden in God and we're reading a timeframe way before for Jesus you like read about Moses them but he's built on a foundation way in the past. It was kept hidden who created all thanks. His tip was even dealing with Moses way before we get to the Roman Empire and Jesus shows up in flesh. His intent was Liz Liz out that now through the church the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities parties in the heavenly realms are cording to his eternal purpose which accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord so you take three redneck sitting here discussing the issue say what exactly doing you said we're share when the manifold wisdom of God to the evil one and anybody else he'll listen. That's what we're doing. What which is Pretty Ironic. It is an and to prove that point that I've always believed that's why Jesus did did what he did. On the Mount of transfiguration we talked about a minute ago and Moses and Ladda both appeared with him Moses representing law alagic representing any prophecy the two things that always pointed towards who Christ is going to be in then base and the presence of God is here in Jesus said about himself. I came to fulfill the law. Yup the and he kept it flawlessly in the sacrificed himself and then he said I came to fulfill all prophecy so everything pointed to him in the moment and so he wanted a visual of bat for his disciples never forgot you know Peter he he freaked out which I would have to and he was like you know. What do we do it was. What a scheme may he chose Nice? None of Israel distant show that this relation to people was what his heart was after but it it laid the foundation seven three Jesus that all nations could be his nation. I'm looking at the Jewish nation all of us now if you just look at them there's something different about the Jews. Oh sure yeah big time you can see it. You like all this vitriol and hatred on one side and the the other side. We're gentiles grafted into their tree. You like all nations will be blessed to Abraham and as this story unfolds with Moses ages leading the Israelite you like it's through the we owe our salvation to the Jews absolutely but that was God's idea. That's right odds what I've always found fascinating. If you WANNA Kinda ball it down and say well what is what does this all mean you know. After Jesus died was buried and resurrected and then all his apostles and followers win started sharing Jesus you get to Stephen in acts seven and he basically preaches. You told mother daughter. You've heard they're saying. The guy preached a suitcase sermon where you're always worried that they were. GonNa fire inside of your your bags packed with they would tell us in prisons good yeah well. There's also soobee a coffin sermon because he basically went through the history of why God chose Israel and look he spent most does a Chapter Talkin about Moses Yup but what I find interesting so if you want to sum up the Book Exodus Twenty verses you just read I seven because because I mean he told he went through why why did it and what it meant. He brought it all together. It is short statement and he got down to the end and he he got out down to verse forty eight and he said however the most high does not live in houses made by men 'cause he was comparing this having the presence of God in the Tabernacle Exodus going through a ritual he was comparing what I'm saying the ritual Listrik nature of the Old Testament and having the law versus now the relationship you can have with God which is what he was after the whole time you know through Jesus us and the regulations rules and regulations and the Holy Spirit because then he says as the Prophet says Heaven is my throne. This is exum. Xm Forty nine. The Earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you bill for me says the Lord or well. Where will my resting place be has not my a handmade all these things and then this is probably where the sermon was bad for you. Stiff necked nick people with uncircumcised hearts and ears. You're just like your father's. You always resist the Holy Spirit. was there ever a profit profit. Your fathers did not persecute they even killed those who predicted the coming of the righteous when you know speaking of Jesus and so after he said that it goes goes on fifty four it says when they heard this they were furious and gnash their teeth teeth book. Stephen full of the Holy Spirit looked up to heaven and saw the glory of God in Jesus Standing at the right hand look he said I see Heaven Open and the son of man standing at the right hand of God well then they go nuts at this. They covered their ears. You know I used to do that. You Know Willie I did want to hear him you know when we were kids and which led to Stephen's on staff and Saul who later would become Paul was there given approval but I just bring this up to say one. It's a good explanation of of Moses Moses and how that transition to what we have in Jesus but it also shows you how people get so set in their ways in their thinking keenum that here's this guy full the Holy Spirit actually sent Jesus and here's AAC Kildee yeah and here's a martyr and the guy that was I holding his clothes you know at his behest the yeah. Let's let's kill that one. He's he's all fired up. y'All death kill him. I'm stone him to death and that's the dude that God would pick this saw watching this brutal murder of Stephen and he picks that one to write most of the New Testament First Corinthians stand that we were just resigned forgiving Dejan. Have you seen the movie The the Apostle Paul to new moving. You need to watch it. I just watched it very interesting. The whole movie said with Paul Awaiting His death so the movie is basically him looking back in Luke is there with him and Jim Caviezel who played Jesus in the passion is Plan Luke in the movie and basically he's just getting the word from Paul to write the book of acts in the movie so as kind of looking back. Here's what the movie did though because you brought it up I had mentioned which it had beautiful this this actor playing Paul was amazing because he's older Paul but they keep looking back and his younger he was so haunted then the movie portrayal which he would have been bowel those that he had killed so they kept showing him in one almost stephen but they kept showing all these little girls and and because he's going in there hall off into prison there. Kellen silence above and so it was dot crowded the NFL because just thinking him looking back on his life. Was You know at the end of the movie. He puts his neck into that. You know slot yet. Say Say I'm the worst centers in the map pathetic. The movie really does a good job of portraying what it would be like for a man who had spent most most of his life once. He turned it around having that regret of the of what he had done a good thing. That's a great point. You brought up because one of the problems of saying working with the human race is there are many who say feel you don't you don't understand. I've done things so so terrible so semple. I can't be forgiven right where they need to look at the apostle standing there holding Stephen Holding there at his behest said kill him killing right and he's the one God chose right most of the New Testament which they need to look at that that's right and in Paul says if I can be saved anyone can be sure so so back to Moses just to catch up for next time we basically goes in. He has miracles at his his disposal which by the way didn't convince Phero or many people memory talked about he could turn a staff turns into a snake and back into a staff. He could put his hand in his cloak. pull it out. Leprosy put it back in no leprosy. IOS Just like yeah but but what happened was the the magicians of you you know Pharaoh's court they pulled off the first couple of times you know when when the water turned to blood where they managed to pull it off they did in even the frogs they had some way to conjure conjure up some frogs so they're like is this guy's just a some kind of super magician so they didn't believe him at first so that's why they have been ten plagues and it was really interesting because we look at the place the first ones. I call the nuisance plays water to blood frogs which they reproduce but then we got to nats and flies they couldn't make that happen. There were so many nats and flies. They were in their nostrils in like your wig. I guess a lot of people eh for the Democratic Party of you're seeing a few ways. God is worth plague of frogs plague a plague of flies plague of livestock diseases these plague of ball if they're going to heal the planet with Mother Nature and control which I've never heard of it and the Bible if they're going to do this whole thing their work cut out for unresolved. I gotta say because we've got floods cover the earth. They got to do something about all that they bitten off a lot and they are also claiming and win the whole thing. Leeann they said eleven years you simple. God said nobody knows when he's GonNa. What are you talking about. They've got a lot of work to do was breath. We took a turn them the ride in the burn that could take the flags and give it to the green new deal so so working not minutes about get up with Jay start watching start watching Nusa going on is that are so so one stepfather see the news plays. Danny went after the economy was the livestock balls. They couldn't can leave their house. It couldn't work hale. Locus is wiping them out now economically. They couldn't stop. It couldn't stop it so you said. Oh we can stop Aghia. Okay yeah which which today's points right so but here's here's the point. This is catches of a next time. We'll unpack. This still wasn't worth all all this. That's a lot of devastation. Faeroe says no leave -able nope nope until the last two and one of them was the plague of darkness is them at so dark couldn't see your hand in funny face for a while so now working on the emotional center and people are starting to say. WHOA YEP and then of course the last one which was the plague the firstborn were basically every firstborn which would be me and our family drop dead overnight you magin the anguish across the nation every firstborn son or daughter in every firstborn animal drop dead overnight. That's God telling the human race. Hey are a world early power do something about this. Listen to me this so next time we get together. We'll talk about that because something very important happens on on this night of death where we see this idea of the Passover and the Passover lamb was all that's gonNA matter and we get to the New Testament and even today so we'll unpack that that a little more next time we get together WANNA mention here I had mentioned awhile the theft of America so if you haven't picked up a copy of that that's dad's latest latest book very good. talks about exactly someone things in America. We see now compared to some of the stuff we've been talking about also lease and I have a new book is called desperate. Robert Forgiveness which is also knew really dealing with a lot of biblical stories and we've used some Old Testament stories to talk about forgiveness and check those out grab one of those and we'll see you next time on an ashamed so we're so glad you guys were with us today.

What I think of each position group match up and The biggest problem I had was I wonder pick the best games thus far and I didn't know what game to pick Nick for Alabama am South Carolina Tennessee or Duke. Is that the top three top four wild so excited to get to that. But let's get to the the show that's lot of barbeque editor. Or do you do what everybody else does. Chris create some Shit and building the wall. which is what I see everywhere where we had a man on forty when my time On Earth is gone. My activities here are fast. Once they bury the upside down and critics and kissed by I. Welcome to menace to society. The college football I guess insiders insiders show under the hood just trying to perspective from a former college coach. Want to start off talking about this chase young fiasco that it just came out and from from the people that I've talked to. This is something that happened last year involving taking advance from an agent and involved a family member. And here's my question in really really what I WANNA know. As the details unfold obviously is not gonNA play this weekend versus Maryland and His season in college career certainly in doubt and so the question here is. Why did this come out right now? How many times have you heard of a situation like this? I La Reggie Bush Cam Newton all the stuff that happened at Lsu and it comes out eventually people find out about it eventually but it's always after the fact. The player gets to live out their college career. Win Awards do all these things and then five five years down the road you find out. Oh boosters bought Reggie Bush's parents a house or a Cam. Newton's dad took like five hundred grand for him to go to Auburn. Why is it just coming out now in the middle of the season? Why is this not five years down the road and my issue is this? I Ah haven't found out the details of WHO reported it. WHO found out about it but I know Ohio state really well? And here's what either happened happened or is happening. They have a guy named Doug Archie. He's in charge of compliance. He's an absolute clown. He is the worst of the worst. You want to know why Ohio State. They get slammed on stupid things over when it seems like people in the south are getting away with murder because Doug Archie. I told the story before about the time that I got accused of paying recruit which never had has never happened but the way he treats people at Ohio state is like he is the FBI trying trying to frame someone for murder. So I promise you this something happened chase young might not even known about it but the reason why all this this is happening the way it's happening is because of the compliance department at Ohio State and I get it if this is the NCAA doing it then. Ohio state is going to try to appeal it but make no mistake about it. Ohio state is being the world police on this one and the compliance department. It's just wild isn't it. How how the LSU booster takes money from what a church or something took five hundred grand from from? I think it was a church. Paid players with it and it's like that was on the news for ten ten minutes and then no one heard about it again but this chase young story. It's going to be all they talk about outside Alabama. LSU He hurt. He killed his chance for the heisman. It's just ridiculous recuse but I don't WanNa talk too much about that. We'll definitely follow up on Sunday after we get more information but from from all accounts chase young's career at Ohio estate is probably over and And if I was going to put money on who dropped the ball on this outside of some wrongdoing by someone in associated with chase as or chase himself. Then it's going to be Doug Archie in the compliance department because they have a longstanding history of dropping the ball. So it's sad to see you hate to see it and it really really disappointed. Appointed chase but here's another thing that I saw in the media. That's absolutely sickening. I there is a guy. Caron Jay Phillips. I don't know if I'm sure no one's heard of four. He's a big time sports reporter and has four thousand followers on twitter so but he made news because people started retweeting. This thing about Meghan Molin kisses players in its its sexual salt and all this other nonsense and it's just being in the coaching industry. You sit there and wonder like one. Why are you re tweeting? That story I if you watch the video. She hugs them. She may give a kiss on the cheek but this is like family. That's that's what the coaches they do it the right way. It's like family and somehow we're going to sit here and act like she did something improper people wanna spend the word. It's a man and a woman that's I hate to break it to you. That's different it just is and I don't care if you agree. Career don't agree. It's different if there was an eighteen year. Old Girl getting off a bus and the coaches husband is giving them kisses and hugging them up. Like that it's just different. I don't know what to tell you about it. If you don't agree you need to wake up. But never mind that. She's not kissing on the mouth she's not doing anything improper. She showing them that her and her family care about them and their success and their life and we want to like demonize that this Guy Caron Jay Phillips should be run out of the industry. That's the reality of the industry. He should be done outrageous but also I another thing on twitter. What would be the sixteen team in playoff and man? I'll tell you what do we need to revamp scheduling rules and regulations shorten the regular season. And get this thing expanded. If you haven't seen a go on twitter and search search for the sixteen team playoff if it existed is really should be really good people. That don't follow me on instagram coaches at Smith but a memory popped up on my instagram. We took a Selfie in game against Nebraska. And I don't want to go back into that whole thing but the receiver coach Nebraska was. Did a bunch of I guess got offended by some things that I tweeted even though they weren't about him and then he whatever created this rivalry somehow between himself and might light and me and so when we beat them. God knows one hundred nothing. We took a Selfie and game and and it was just reminded me of how about branding and college football. What I think I did did a great job of creating zone six? And it was me and my players did it and it really transcended what was going on in recruiting and the impact impacted had in recruiting was phenomenal. Because when I first got to Ohio State. Ohio state wasn't sexy for skill players for for for great athletes It used to be early. Two thousands moving backwards but if you look at the receiver room that I had it was there was a couple of guys like in Ohio Guy in Ohio state legacy see Philly Brown was really the one that that had no how state tie. That was a really good player that was in the room. But just recruiting Stefan Digs and James quick the next year. It just wasn't sexy to go to Ohio state and and to play for the Buckeyes and creating that zone. Six brand is really what helped me push it over the edge and so now you're seeing a lot of things have been in recruiting because Ohio state is sexy. Let's not forget twenty twelve. Nothing about Ohio state was sexy to a receiver or to a skilled player. And so that had to be created that memory reminded me we did in twenty fourteen two in the National National Championship game took a Selfie during the game. I'd you me Tom. Herman a bunch of players. We took a selfie fourth quarter as. We're winning the National Championship. Just because savage. It was a way to appeal to the younger audience. And so just wanted to bring that up because I thought it was funny a funny story and check my instagram the pictures on there from Nebraska. I think it's twenty sixteen eighteen but I also WanNa talk about the LSU Alabama preview. It's going to be an awesome game so I went back and watched about six games. Roughly three on each team and really broke down this game and the I guess the biggest news is that Lsu's linebacker Michael Divinity left the team citing personal reasons. And I hate to hear hear that personal reasons but he he was. LSU SACK leader. It's going to be a major loss and and usually I'm not saying it is in this case because I certainly don't know him or what happened happened with him but usually when someone leaves the team citing personal reasons. I'd say ninety five percent of the time it was. They were a major ager violator of a drug policy at the university meeting multiple failed drug tests. Like I said I don't know that that happened with Michael Divinity but ninety seven percent of the time. I'm a team player. Leaves the team citing personal reasons is because they feel too many drug tests and they had to leave the team. But I'll tell you the question. I'm most excited about is will to a tunnel vilo play. It's the strategy right. Is it strategy or competitive nature. What is Nick Saban's plan? What is he going to do? But you look at Nick Sabin. He certainly knows what he's doing in games like this. I mean he's seventy six percent all-time against against top ten opponents the last five years. He's fourteen in three against top ten teams but what was craziest stat about all. This was against top four opponents in the last five years. He's ten and two. He has an eighty-three percent. Win percentage against top four opponents. That's unheard of. He's won the also in the last five meetings with Lsu when they were a top ten team so it's going to be a good game but but let's put it this way. Nick Sabin knows what he's doing. But here's what we are about to do. We're about to watch two of the three most electric wide receiver course in the country roll into Bryant Denny Stadium Saturday and they both have their arsenal ready. Five of the top tens of five of the top ten wide receivers in the SEC. Grade wise are going to be on on the field. Think about that. Five of the top ten Jomar Chase and Lsu just Jefferson Lsu devante Smith in Alabama. Jerry Judy Alabama and. There's I mean throwing Jalen Waddell who is a superstar last year as head kind of slower sophomore slump terrence Moore the red zone threat at Lsu. We're going to have six of the best receivers in the country all in Bryant Denny Stadium on Saturday Saturday. It's going to be insanity. You throw into the mix to the country's best quarterbacks in to a tango Vilo and Jose but I'll say and the fireworks airwork's will be going off in Tuscaloosa on Saturday. It's going to be epic. It's going to be the game of the year. I really when I looked at the game looking at Alabama on offense and Lsu on defense the question Russian is we'll be able to light up the LSU secondary because their seventh in America in Pat explosive past eight hundred seven explosive passes this year. They averaged over thirteen per game. And those of you. That didn't see the Ohio state breakdown or didn't listen to it. That's one of my most critical things for house. They right now is explosions in the past game and right now. Alabama is just exploding all over the field in the past game and then the question is can. LSU's DB's contain rain or even cover Alabama's receivers LSU is one of the most talented secondaries in the country. And when I watch them on film they show they're susceptible to a talented wide receiver sort. They have not played many the best being I'd say Van Jefferson at Florida. Probably I mean Texas was able to expose them for four hundred yards passing and four touchdowns Florida. They did the same roughly three weeks ago. Four touchdowns three hundred eleven yards passing the best wide receiver. They have faced to date like I said Van Jefferson Florida has to be. He had a huge impact eight catches seventy three yards two touchdowns he had a big game. Which makes you as to questions? Why doesn't Florida feature and more and to what? What is this Alabama receiver core going to be able to do how dare extinct junior a grant delta and the rest of the secondary secondary manager defense that relies heavily on man coverage when you watch almost every snap is some form of man coverage when they're facing by far the greatest skillet wide receiver to date? devante Smith Jerry Judy Henry Rugs. The top two are better than anyone else has faced last year the crew who was able to go for almost three hundred yards and two scores when they went twenty nine. Nothing and Jerry. Judy went off for one hundred yards. So the question is what is GonNa Happen. On on the perimeter I was the loss of Michael. divinities will certainly hurt as he was an explosive player and a pass rush difference maker on this defense leading leading tackler Jacob Phillips is going to have to increase his already stellar play. And he's going to have to make up for it automatically. I did hear one interview talking to believe it was David Randa. LSU Players Someone Alabama love slant routes so get ready for Steve Sarkissian put in compliments off of slants because Alabama Alabama knows that they run a lot of slant routes but to hear Lsu talk about having a specific plan to stop slant routes it's red flags automatically. You're saying all right they're going to be trying to jump the hell out of our slants. We're GONNA put in a slant go we're going to put in these compliments office land so just get ready for that. That will happen. But here's the thing when I watch Alabama the they do really really well and it's called a site adjust to a slant I mean people say oh they run slants to stop the slants. Well there's a reason they do it because what I've seen on film is they'll cite a just a a slant and what I mean by site adjusts slant is when the defense blitzes they will do. What's called replaced the Blitzer so if let's say the linebacker inside of the number three receiver blitzes that receiver then knows that the protection scheme can't pick up that certain linebacker and so he will sight adjust his route run hot route and turn his route into a slant and replace that blitzer to get in the void and just just get ready for Urban Meyer to go on and Fox big noon kickoff and talk about sight adjustments and replacing replacing Blitzer? That'll that'll come down the road at some point. He's huge on it. But that's what happens someone blitz and you can't account for and protection either. The quarterback has has to do a very subtle signal to tell the receiver. A this guy this guy this guy comes anita slant or it's already built into their scheme. We did both at Ohio state. But I will tell you this in the run Game Alabama certainly second fiddle to their throw game but the highly touted Najji hairs leads the charge but he only gets around thirteen touches a game. He was over twenty against Tennessee. And so you can expect him to play a much bigger role in a game of this atmosphere. Where Sabin a defensive coach? By the way we want to control the game more so than slinging at around fifty times so I would look for Nausea Harris to have an increased role. He's atop Ted graded back back which is minimal production because mental minimal touches. Fifty ninth in rushing yardage sixty six and then average but make no mistake he is capable of explosive plays. I'm excited to watch the the real story here though is. LSU's offense enter Jose. But I'll say Joe Borough heisman front runner potential potential number one pick to the Cincinnati bengals. Hopefully not for his sake number three in the country in with eighty four percent adjusted completion percentage Senate number three in the country on deep. He's twenty two of thirty five on deep balls. And I would say the greatest thing I took away after going back and rea watching this Alabama team or this. LSU offense is Joe Brady has custom-tailored this offense. For Joe Borough. I went back and watched their plan and Execution Against Auburn and Florida Florida. It's beautiful I mean. They had stacks bunches picks. Man beaters Galore all over the field than the RPO take advantage of teams trying to stop their evolving and improving run game. And I'm GonNa tell you what Clyde Edwards Hilar- wow did. He burst on the scene in the last two games for Florida Lord and Auburn be prepared for a heavy dose of him and Tuscaloosa. He had thirty nine carries for two hundred seventy yards and three touchdowns in those two games. Almost seven yards a carry against two of who were top. Twenty five rush defense is until they faced. LSU The real differs the job robe. Races offense is what he does when something isn't there you watch him play and when even when things are open they are covered east has been phenomenal but his ability to keep play Klay Alive. Move outside of the pocket. Keep his eyes. Downfield make plays playing man coverage defense. It's almost almost impossible to stop. How how long can you cover those three the three headed monsters in? LSU's receive room. How long could you actually cover them? I mean if he escapes the pocket. Clean no one in American. Cover those guys for four seconds. It's not possible it becomes like a backyard. Football this is what is making jober on this past game. So lethal lethal is when things don't work and when things don't go well he escapes. The pocket keeps the play alive doesn't scramble recklessly and let's them work finds a guy thirty yards downfield. It's phenomenal so the real question here is what will Nick Sabin. And Alabama's plan B.. Florida went in and thought they could match. What's up man coverage and got beat pretty much the entire game by this? LSU receiver core even when they had excellent coverage jober would escape the pocket allow his receivers more time and no secondary in the country can win a game backyard. Football with those freaks on the edge and Jose Barrosa wheel and deal in the ball the real difference in this game. I think he's going to be critical down. This is third down performance and you look no further than the team. That wins third down. Win this game barring some turnover fiasco. Both critical. Situations are mismatched. They are in favor of both offenses Alabama's the fortieth team in the country. Getting off the field on third down. And they face the seventy ninth best third down offense and so what does that mean. I'd just look at the third down offense as they faced an average amount almost eightieth offense in the country on average on third down and they are only fortieth in the country getting off the field. LSU How their the sixth best third down offense in the country major major contention point in this game facing similar competition on average sixty eighth best their offense in the country Alabama is the number two third offense in America. LSU's the twenty-first best third down defense. So what does that all mean. It means someone is going to need to step up on defense and win. It's money down third down and whoever doesn't is going experience drive staying alive and points being scored look no further. WHOEVER WINS THE THIRD DOWN BATTLE In this epoch game aim of the game of the year is going to win the football game and in my opinion nick? Sabin doesn't lose at home to anyone especially in a big time. Matchup Think Alabama Wednesday's football game. But we're GONNA find out Saturday night. Good part but I do want to get away from indiscriminate because we have a special guest coming on right now. So let's let's get the Josh Newburgh from nose to four seven to talk a little bit about the Florida state fiasco go. I guess that's going on I. Welcome back menace to society. We have on the phone or I guess the Florida State Liaison Those of you you that that remember I went down to the Miami Florida weeks zero game. Courtesy the big three roll up. Josh Newburgh was a huge part of that he is the. We'll Josh. Would you call it the brains behind the operation there in the big three roll up I I mean I like to call myself just a weekly guest. We base them. Outlandish Shit I you can just kinda set no. I'm just a week. We actually host right you they just had you on the craziness. But I'm the ringleader of the circus. There you go I like that I would. I would encourage anyone to give josh a chance to kind of tell you about the podcast that they have down there. Because it's awesome. I've I've listened to it every week since since we really kind of connected connected through social media and since I went down to the tailgate and they are the inspiration for the Penn state. tailgate coming up on the twenty-third still trying to still trying to recruit the whole whole staff staff to come up and hang out. But we'll see about that here in the next couple of weeks but really wanted to have josh on. Because I know I talked about the Florida state I guess situation Shen Tobacco whatever you WANNA call it in. No one knows more about the program. And what's going on the Josh. So Joshua thanks for coming on. Yeah Man. It's good to be here how's it. Feel now I gotta welcome at your member of the media. That is the one that is the one title I refuse to own. Its I figured there. Those were fighting opened with it. Yeah that's bad. Call me member of the media right off the jump here now. It's great to be here man. I've been watching closely. Oh sleep what you've been doing. You know you made an appearance on our podcast. What was it over the summer? So how many podcasts in were you menace to society when you came on the big role you know what I was probably like ten or fifteen in ten ten episodes so from that point to now. What's what's the most interesting thing you've learned earned done with with podcast? What is just such a different realm I mean just just from from true radio audio media to TV TV shows? It's just it's it's definitely the new era of audio media and It's been really cool. To explore in I've met with so many like executives radio executives executives and all these people in Columbus that are basically like. Yeah we we know it's like they. The one guy told me he said. We are like blockbuster and podcasts are net net flicks like we know. We're going out of business soon. And we're trying to figure out what the Hell podcasts are. Yeah I think podcast is just a bad name for platform. It's just because it can be whatever you want. There's no structure to what we talk about. There's no time restraints. There's no commercial breaks when things are getting good It doesn't even and just have to be audio. You can get some video with it. You can do all kinds of things so I love it. I think you know. Keep pushing it and you guys are doing great. Can't wait to see what comes up your pod note. I appreciate it man I appreciate it well. Let's let's dive into this. This this seminal nation issues that are it just really. I WanNa know talk to me about the ramifications that you are seeing from this entire situation with Willie Taggart and the fallout in recruiting the fan base kind of the state of seminole nation. Right now what do you what do you how do you see it from inside wolf very unstable but it was really unstable. Even before this all happened I mean you you go back to Willie Taggart's tenure and it's been a short one. I finished nine wins twelve losses. He made several coaching changes during his tenure. Here he's made some some. Some questionable moves He's he's recruited well at times hasn't retreated well times right now. I would say definitely in a state of limbo. You know how this go anytime. A coaching change occurs. The the recruiting pendulum will swing way in the in the negative direction for two state has had three or four decommitments. Now now before the Miami game. They had twenty commitments at this point. I believe they've seventeen there as high as twenty one during season So there you know. The majority of the classes stuck together That's kind of expected with recruiting in this day and age. Like Florida. State doesn't have a full commitment list of kids that are being recruited by Georgia and Alabama and Auburn. They got some kids that were that had a lot of interest. But at this point all these commitment classes are so full right now that even if these kids wanted to go elsewhere. It's not like they can necessarily upgrade and it's not not say they're not talented enough but it just you know sponsor taking right now recruiting recruiting. Most of the classes are nearly complete. So that being said I you know we're at seventeen. I don't think for two states going to drop down to fifteen fourteen fourteen. So they'll probably weather the storm they'll make a new hire and then the pendulum starts to swing in the other direction. There's excitement there's hope The new coach comes then he goes in a couple of homes and convince some kids to commit and you know they only need to add ten to twelve pieces. Probably when all this washes out. So I think recruiting. We'll survive I They got Jeff Sims. A quarterback out of Jacksonville is remained committed at least for now they did lose a few key pieces mainly being jalen night and he's running back out of Deerfield it'll beach for star player had offers from Ohio State Miami claims in a couple of others and committed a FC over the summer now he committed on Monday morning. I tend to believe he would have decommitted. Had Willie Taggart stayed. 'cause that's just where the rumors were heading. But he's probably the biggest piece episode was lost so far They got three more weeks of the regular season. And then they'll get out on the road with hopefully new coach. That's the crazy thing now is what whatever it's been two years now with the new signing date and This is really like trying to find a home. What back in the day used to be like beginning January? It's like Whoa man. It's getting close to two curtain. Call you better find some invest. So it's like a game of musical chairs it really is and it's also sped up this whole coaching search process wind fire guy. When you look at Willie Taggart two year? Not even two years. Here's a year and a half and he's can't and it's like well you can't wait till after the season to fire guy anymore. You gotta you gotTa make the call and get a coach in to try to salvage a class. Hey I got a question for you On Saturday night after the Miami game. I don't know if you saw the kind of the viral video of curb street on the bus where he just evisceration for two state eight and Willie Taggart the culture. Everything you see that I didn't okay. So he got on and it was a very candid conversation and it just kind of cut to the core of the character of this team and it was. It was a little bit beyond a normal Critique of Florida state now. ESPN LOVES TO SHIT ON FOUR TO state but this one a little bit extra tre and while I'm not GonNa really argue with what he said it was kind of. Maybe the way said it. But I had a couple of coaches actually Call me the next day and say that they think that you know honestly was maybe the straw that broke the camel's back because a person like that it's so high profile. They're like you know with the boosters and everything like how do you really come back to that after the Miami loss You think that something like that way in ultimately on on a on a coach's tenure in your life that because it is kind of weird that they would fire him with three games to go. Yeah you know what I think. It's like anything else and I. It's not too though it's very different. I could relate it to my own personal situation in where the athletic director might. Not You know. The administration at Florida state might not have put a lot of weight into the media. Kirk herbstreit or anyone like that but but it's not even that's not even what's most important it's all of a sudden the people with all the money start feeling embarrassed that then they put the pressure on the administration then all of a sudden. It's like you find yourself in a situation where you're like the administration. Missile probably didn't WanNa do this right now but it bears. That's the work force their hand and and here are millionaires donating all this money and they're embarrassed because because Kirk herbstreit does that now. They're putting pressure where it counts with with dollars in in obviously being embarrassed by Miami was was that was probably the catalyst twenty seven ten at home. That's what having that being said. You know I I just had a couple of coaches reach out to me and said man. I like that was it. That was the straw that broke the back. And you know so. It's kind of it's been awhile it's been awhile. It feels like it's been two weeks that game ended but it's been like three or four days right. Well I can. I can imagine in your world. It's been about two to three weeks worth of work since since it happened. So here's my next question for you because I know that it's it's not well known nationally but there was a lot of issues with Jimbo Fisher and Florida state just the culture of Florida State's administration boosters etc and there were obviously split on bad terms taking what I would what I would call a major step down to go to Texas. M. Fans probably won't be happy about that but that's what it was was to me. What what is the issue at Florida State is it? Is it just the Bobby Bowden. After effect of just having one coach for forty years that just did do things a certain way and then people struggle to change or what. What's wrong at Florida state? No I don't think so. I think Jimbo was. You gotTa Look Jimbo's tenure in in like two halves right and there's the half where a lot of people they call it when he was engaged and that makes a lot of thin and then there was the other half where where he kind of let things slide So when he was engaged in when he was recruiting and when that thing was clicking and running on all cylinders meaning him and his I and I you know I was there for to see how he moved in unison. With guys like Eddy. Grant and James Coli and Damian crag and like they they were all he really had these guys going in the right direction. It sounds a lot like what you talk about Urban Meyer. I'm sure there are different leaders but it sounded very similar and they were all very very focused on the same goal Then there's the second half and that's after the national championship and he started letting things go. I noticed noticed in especially in recruiting in with their evaluation. I started noticing them settling with the low hanging fruit like instead et of landing. Eddie Jackson in a Jerry. Judy GonNA name names but they would settle for these other guys while they were highly rated you know. And I know they're not the same player is as the elites that you were recruiting. So right I think that started to happen in the background. Him Holding not only his staff but his players accountable started to happen now. The debt started piling up right bad grades bad attitude bad overall cultures. They say well that had to be paid some point. Willie Taggart got saddled with with the debt. There's no question it came from Jimbo Fisher now what he did with it. Moving forward forward there was his own issues and there is a lot of There's a lot of things that need to be cleaned up. He did a good job the first summer that he got there they had to literally. I don't know if you did this. They had to have their coaches in the hallways at the school to make sure the kids were going to class because kids just were not going to class. When they arrived there they had to during that summer? They were standing outside of classrooms. GROWN ASS coaches to make sure kids go to school. I've been there. I have been there so there is a lot wrong. And then if you WANNA get into recruiting Willie Taggart and I- harped on this. And I I was a bad guy episode twitter and everybody Thought that I would be negative for the sake of being negative but I- harped on this heart Willie. TAGGART did not sign a high school quarterback during his entire time at Florida state. Oh wow inside one when he first got there. He didn't sign one last year. UC quarterback back played off the CD. Houston quarterback play around the country. At the end of the day. The only reason he really turned. USF around is because he couldn't flowers a transcendent quarterback that you know if anybody would understand the need to have a great quarterback you'd think it would be Willie Taggart so I just could not understand for the life of me how they didn't how they weren't signing more oranmore art. You know like I. I thought that was a big problem. They didn't address anything on the offensive line. They had no answer when Brian Burns left. Pass rusher They still have their pass rush. They'RE GONNA THEY'RE GONNA fall off. Talent Cliff Jimbo. Fisher's guys are about to leave Willie Taggart you know. Say What you want. He's recruited okay. Number Eleven class backed up with the number fourteen class and this is trending to be like a eighteen to twenty class before he left they were going in the wrong direction recruiting It's the life part of the program program. I don't need to describe to you. How vital recruiting is those that no just could I could see where this class was sliding I mean when he first arrived he he was handed a sixty fourth grade class from Jimbo Fisher? He brought it to number let outside the top ten. Not where you typically see episode finished but we all said well. Hey this is Willie Tigers for. She'll never finish firmer than eleven. I mean we're talking top five top three classes every year is here why not right and it was just signed backward. Yeah aw yeah that's definitely. That's horrible trend. Especially it's one thing if it's a year or two and your team is already loaded. But if you're if you're already expecting acting departures on all these fronts and you still aren't having that success on the trail. That's that's GonNa that's GONNA be a bad deal on a year and Jimbo Fisher recruiting crude number. One players. That are position. And that's WHO's leaving Margaret Vilson number one defensive tackle on America out of Texas. Oh Yeah camakers number one running back in America out of Mississippi Kaelin Labor. He was a number one all purpose. Back Out of Virginia record tomorrow and Terry he makes plays. I mean every guy just named could potentially go to the NFL next year. They're they're beyond your three We know camakers we know. Marvin Wilson will probably tomorrow and Terry you watch up to show. Where's the production? GonNa you know. There's huge question marks ORCs moving forward and I think the Admin solve this and I think they were just they wanted to cut bait while they could and you know what what you said. The most alarming thing. You've so far is to not sign a quarterback in two classes. I mean that that's not only with the the re introduction of the transfer portal the world that we live in but this just such important critical position. Like how you don't take one every year is just it's mind blowing or two every year right. I mean it's like I've heard a Lotta NFL former NFL players and even people that are in NFL personnel. Say you should draft a quarterback every year and that's the NFL let alone college where you're talking about it. I I watch I watch Jimbo Fisher for six years. I you know I covered up the season's twenty ten so I watched Jimbo Fisher load up arms and people would say yeah but Jimbo Fisher missed on all these guys. Yeah no shit. He knew he was going to miss on guys. He just knows that there's attrition at the quarterback position and that's why he made sure he was signed in two quarterbacks year. One one point he had three quarterbacks committed. I asked him what do you really. You'RE GONNA sign three quarterbacks and he just said I'll sign them all just let you know if one of them doesn't want to compete. Let him go off a learner out about his. You know learn a lot about if he decides commit right and he did And they ended up signing to put my point is it's like Jimbo understood that not all these guys pan out. That's why you gotta sign more than one. Yeah that's a fact that is definitely fact. And you know what you signed to. And you're going to ended up with the better of the two because the other kids going to leave after he sees the writing on the wall anyways and then you're going to have a spot for another quarterback in a year or two which is always works out anyways you know right. So here's my next question so first of all. I'm viewing this from obviously an outsider's perspective and having been in coaching for whatever fifteen years I just view Florida SORTA status such A. It's I don't WanNa say they just want a national championship six years ago. But it's such a sleeping giant especially with the state that the ACC is in right now being just that one trick pony and Clemson and they really are looking for a Florida state or Miami. To just I mean come back strong and so if they make a home run hire here. They get that superstar coach. It's they obviously want to get how. How good of a job is Florida state? I the great job. Just look at what Jim Jimbo Fisher literally are we took. FSU from kind of the same position. It is now shoo in three years a a four years a national championship so he just did exactly actually what you're saying four to state was signed on the on the trash pile. Wait to be taken out. You know Not many people knew where where the program was headed. They you gotta remember also like you're losing Bobby Bowden and you're promoting this this guy that's never been a head coach and he's he's been you know called plays and the offense hasn't looked all that great. You're not winning too many games and now this is going to be the guy that you're backing up legend. With and in four years he rebuilt the entire program and national championship right. There's no doubt well. So what are you hearing. Why I mean I've I've heard obviously all the national media coverage just on on on different Different candidates you and I even went back and forth a little bit on twitter on it. I don't know there's a lot of momentum around Bob stoops's name even I mean I I don't know how real that is but obviously there is communication there. What are you hearing? What do you think as far as guys that give? GimMe like your front runner. Maybe a couple others that are in the mix and then you're you're darkhorse kind of longshot. Candidate I really I really like All let's let's just start with the what what's actually happening right now. You Got Bob stoops. The top candidate Bob stoops says he's not a candidate right but who determines who's a candidate like at Florida state really really likes you and they got you on the board and they want to offer you a Shitload of money. Your candidate to them now just their job to convince you to take so right. So I know for fact before to space interest in Bob Students. there's been some contact You know how this stuff works. You don't really get offered the job until until you're ready to accept ah like teams the the the negotiation they talk they go back and forth. Do the dance and when the program thinks they gotta coach. That's ready to accept. That's usually when the author goes out so People say well have they offered you know all this stuff and that's not really how it goes so I think what's going on now is Based on on what we're hearing is you know force. They hire that search for on and and they've been in town since Monday night and they're on campus and on a conference call with all the boosters yesterday eh they're going through the process going to vet some guys I know stoops's one of them. I know this little brothers. One of them mark stoops is going to be in there as well in the mix Some other names that we've heard of interest. I wouldn't say there to the level of where stoops's But Dave Clawson Matt Campbell And and and then there's the outside the box hires you know. Do they go with a with a up and coming coordinator. I don't think so not after what what happened with. Willie tagger I don't I don't I don't know if they can make that type of higher you know what I mean. Yeah I mean in the Taggart mole like an up and comer that maybe has a lot of juice. WHO's behind the but hasn't doesn't have the experience? I don't know if they can do that. Yes that would be a risky call to do something like that. I mean you're talking about if it fails the eighties. He's gone. I mean the president might be gone. That is a risky thing to do. Now it might be the greatest pay off in the long run. But that's a high risk high reward. Hire really I mean to go after Brent Venables or Jeff Scott or someone like that. That's just the IT could work out. Alah Kirby Smarter Lincoln Riley but it could also so coke go the other direction and I don't think that's something that would be. They would want to do you know. And I don't know I. I think. The higher is about minimizing risk. Right not a perfect candidate out there by agrees. Oh but the but the right hire might not be a a Bob stoops or so I was listening to your podcast. And you bet doc Holliday. And I remember Deal with Dhaka lot back into like. Oh eight Oh nine nine. Ten like on the recruiting trail seen him out and stuff and I forgot what. It's like to talk about coaching with people to actually understand coaching coaching. Like Doc Holliday's name twitter right. I get torn apart by the F.. Issue Fan absolutely and you made a great point about putting together a staff that can recruit because that's literally just Jimbo when he had when he had his boys with them early on during his tenure episode in those guys are really the one one eighty grand at mark stoops James Coley like those. Were the guys that really built the foundation for that class. And you gotTa Oughta have a group that walks is one especially in recruiting and and I think that was kind of one of the downfalls tagger it was it was. He didn't have a core group. The guys around him he kinda put together a mercenary staff. So guys were coming on his staff that were come into four to state to maybe bounce to the next job or or elevate their status or get paid board. It wasn't like these guys were coming with Willie Taggart. You know what I'm saying. Oh absolutely absolutely he he was. I do remember when he first got hired. He was set to hire Mike Loxley his office coordinator and that was right before Obama promoted Loxley to to the full the main offense coordinator but that that was Willie and Loxley weren't they weren't tight or anything I haven't. They knew each other but you could tell he was just kind of piecing together names not necessarily surly his core group like you just said he absolutely was and I think that was kind of one of the things that happened when he moved so quickly from Western Kentucky to USF to Oregon. It was like he didn't really build up a solid foundation of coaches around him. He had a couple of guys and you know they probably weren't that out ready for for a job like FSU So I think that Kinda hurts so so I do like the idea of a doc holliday. You know somebody like that but what we just just said about the risk involved that would be an impossible sell right now. No absolutely you're GONNA get one of these guys. I think what we're going to get is somebody with experience somebody. Nobody that's run a program or been out of big program. They want somebody that is the anti you know not not to just take a dump on willing but the Anti Willie Taggart like somebody that battle-tested has gone through the rigors and roller coasters of running a major program. And right now you're looking at either. The stoops they kind of fit that bill. Yeah no doubt and I. I think we're just my kind of outside perspective. I think mark stoops ends up being the Guy I think Bob I mean in part part of it is if I had to put money on it right now. Part of it is like I guess because I was involved with the University of Florida forever and Bob Stoops's name came up every time there was even I mean every every time it was like oh it's a spur your sneezed Bob. Stoop it's gotta be Bob Stoops. And how many times have Bob stoops take that job zero exactly exactly and I think I think mark mark soups makes a lot of sense. I mean what he's done. Kentucky is is admirable. I mean it's outside of maybe the Joker Phillips for a year or two. They haven't had hardly any success in se. So I got a question for you. How important is you know one of the knocks on Willie Taggart was that he didn't have a Five hundred injured record right so get this mark stoops if he wins the next three games wins out. He'll be one game over five hundred. How important is his record? Word to getting hired at Florida state. I think it's it's important but you gotta take it with a grain of salt like you look at Willie Taggart right. It's I mean it's one. Hey I mean I think it you know it's like anything else. People are going to are going to hook into something like that whether he whether he does it and is over five hundred or is below five hundred people. Were GonNA talk about it if that happens but ultimately going five hundred Kentucky. That's pretty damn good. It'll get your resigned. It'll make you know that's a fact. That's a fact. Well here not knowing as the staff is intimately as you know the staff. When let's say mark stoops gets hired or whoever it is who are the two or usually on a staff you're going to have a retention of maybe two coaches possibly three? Who are the two three coaches that you see the new coach retaining retaining for whatever reason? I'll be recruiting or just chemistry with the team. Who Do you think those two to three coaches are well actually on Monday in my my coaching inside are reported that The ad the admin would like for for the next head coach to take to keep threes. And this isn't a deal breaker. It's just they like like the new coach to do and it would be owed. O'Higgins defensive. Line coach is now the interim we'd Garnet and gold. The other I was told was Ron Undo Gins. Another guy he just came from Miami and I believe he has a two year deal anyway so he just left Miami last year and he's a former seminal and and then the third is a quality control coach. And that's Mario Edward Senior. Who's been there for? You know five or six years now through through coaching change already. Now he's not being asked to be promoted to on field or anything he's just being asked to be kept around so I've been told that those would be kind of three names that they would want a two now. Obviously you've got kindle Bryan out there right so one point one point two million dollars but it's hard to saddle coach within Osi. I don't I don't know how many coaches that are. Worth a damn would go to a place where they're being told they have to keep this coordination. Yeah you know what I don't know hardly any that would and if it was is one that would be okay with it. Maybe they knew Kendall Browse. It would have to be a defensive coach. There's no way you're gonNA bring you know you're gonNA bring an offensive guy and going to say. Hey and by the way. Here's your coordinator. That's a recipe for disaster. But even if it's mark stoops like even if it's mark stoops you don't think he's GonNa WanNa Bring Eddy grant with no yes. Had He had successive Puerta State. Already knows the the land like this is in recruiting in south Florida. So Eddie would you know. Y- it's hard. I know fans want to be like well regarded got Kendall here so it's probably probably looks real appealing to the next coach now. It doesn't really work like that. No not at all I agree I agree entirely. That's when administrations get too involved when they start telling you what coaches to keep and not keep or what coordinator you're GONNA have. That's when it's like. WHOA TIMEOUT WHO's running the program here? Right yeah ah it's all Negoti it just depends on how much leverage you got in right now for state doesn't have the leverage to get a big time coach in in say you're you're keeping these coaches no matter what they did this. I can't do that no doubt no doubt. Well it's an interesting time to be a seminal. That's for sure I don't I appreciate you coming on and I want to definitely give you a chance because like I mentioned before we we started big three roll. Up is a huge platform down in Florida. You guys have eight million shows. I can't even keep track but but it's it's really the tailgates as for anyone. That's listening that has a chance. You gotTA check out their tailgates when they have them there. We had a great time. And the show's awesome. So check it out. Tell tell everyone where they can find you and what what shows do do they have to listen to. Yeah the big three roll up. That's the that's the The Big One. That's every Thursday morning. Seven am spotify. I tunes wherever you get sure podcasts. It's their big roll up. Is You know it's represented by me. On the issue guys silks the gator guy. Kev Is the Miami Guy. So it's Kinda like three brothers arguing or three friends sitting in a barber shop. I mean we we go at it and we get off topic and It's really fun. It's a great show. We're going on three years now. Now I guess You know you've been on a couple of times. We've had broke Song Ken. Griffey Junior Vernon hargraves you know the list goes on a a Lotta great from the Big Three Charlie awards on Danny War full. It's great then. We do a show on Sunday that same energy Sunday. If you you weren't going to bring it up I was going to bring it up. Yeah that is the show for the people. Let me tell you that shows really taken off. It's crazy how that show is taken taken off. What we do is a call in only show on Sunday? We don't really break the game down at all. We get down there talk for like five minutes but we're just taking phone calls and the the the idea of the show is the big roles all about talking shit being you know being out there and being loud and we say like no matter what your team does on Saturday this show on so you better bring that same energy that you had winter loss before the before the game you better bring it to this show in and talk to us so it's taken off people love it Doing some other things like you said we got so many pods because the big three roll up. Roll Dot Com. I tune spotify wherever perfect worked. Well I appreciate you coming on Josh. Always a pleasure my man as AC Milan anytime number. I appreciate a row about hut now. I thought that would be some coup insight to get Josh on and just one. He's he's really well respected in the recruiting gain the two four seven world. And then he has a lot of insider info and it's interesting to see the demise of that program down at Florida state and really the their efforts to to take a risk in in maybe bring it back to relevancy. which is what it what Jimbo Fisher did and so interesting to see really excited about the Lsu you Alabama matchup but check us out on Sunday? We're going to have a couple of things going on next week. We're going to launch a little video. Content Patriot members are going to get an exclusive video for this. Listen I apologize. Patriots kind of just been inconsistent because we're

The one and only the ten Dan Rubenstein is back. Sir How are you you. I'm good. This was sort of a surprise twos cruise. We didn't plan on doing this specific episode as a twos cruise. But I gotTa Tell Ya with. I don't know of what we're comparing it to the the Queen Mary. The titanic the Solta Lever Boat. Hopefully not the titanic. Hopefully not the tele. Maybe somebody may be the titanic this game but I don't know what it is because today's show is dedicated to the National Championship match-up between Lsu and Clemson. And I guess Matt Rule for the Carolyn. We're actually GONNA spend time talking about that but my heart is beating on my blood sugar feel super out of why it is as you said when we connected up that you were feeling a little bit of a blood sugar spike. I don't know I just I I. I do feel a good amount of excitement about this match. That is that is honest to God the truth. You're getting favors here. I am. I okay enjoyed watching both of these teams. I think probably Lsu more so this season because of their the games they actually played in the opponents that they had but it was a pleasure to watch both these teams in the In the semi-finals. But I just I also I don't no. I mentioned this on twitter but I got even more excited watching. There's a Youtube Channel It's run by a guy named Murph Baldwin. Yeah I sent this to you. Yeah I I mean I think it's top billin baby I am. He's coming on in the off season he doesn't know it yet. But we're GONNA invite it doesn't know it yet but he does a fantastic job doing XS and os stuff with college college football so if you like that sort of thing with video top billin is the move to make But that guy's got that got me even more excited about this matchup so here we are tie here. We are here we are. You're welcome one. Welcome all now if you're just joining us for the first time. Yeah I'm tie. He's Dan we did three episodes every a week all throughout the season. We may Tuesday episode the one that dropped on Tuesday. We call the TWOS crews normally. We do Sunday and Wednesday Sunday. We'd recap Wednesday. I guess Thursday we drop the show. We would preview the coming weeks games but nestled in between we had a little show. We called the twos cruise. Which of course was cheesy in that? It was very nautical themed but we come at it. We fully committed Marty Smith style to the bit right and Alas we could think of no better time to do another twos crews then on this very special occasion it is the bull bars right. That's we're calling this. It's it's sort of an abbreviated twos crews. Yeah it's all that I don't know how long the show is going to go. But Yeah we're still sticking with the bowl barge and I I suppose suppose we have a sound that we do you want no dog chair pitcher. If you believe in the blind bengals please exit portside if you're Bubi Moore's ex stormer the dark horn. There's the dark horn so so it is one of those fun match. UPS were both are the Tigers. If you WANNA be cheeky about it and pick the Tigers to win By all means go for it. We're going to do our best here over the next forty five minutes or so to cover as many angles as we can. We're GONNA do so in as much as we can. In as has nautical themed away as we can because alas we need to stick with our twos crews theme if only one more episode yes can we you think this is an old radio term but can we reset yet I want. I want to start from the beginning Because these two teams have had had very different paths to this point Neither better nor worse but I want to start here. What was your opinion of each of these teams preseason and how how much if at all did that opinion evolve well the Lsu one is is far easier because headed into the season? I was very skeptical Very skeptical that all this rigmarole we heard about on the offensive side of the ball MHM WAS GONNA prove legit and I believe my point when we previewed the SEC. West back in like August whenever was was just that how. How many times have we heard this before that? LSU is going to revamp its offense. We'd heard time and again that they they know the talent they know they they. They know. That's the one missing piece piece. I need to modernize need to modernize right and certainly there was a fair amount of skepticism. When at order on took over that he'll be the man to to Kinda Alid? Lsu through that revolution on offense get them to the promised land while you're yeah here we are. It's clear that they've found the right people to do that. They've clearly got the right quarterback to do that being said we won the highest been. They've got running back. They've got a good cast of receivers a pretty good line. So it's all there on the offensive side of the ball I never had a doubt about their defense. That's something we'll get into a little bit more as we talk about the matchups specifically Clemson's offense against this defense but the offensive component on Lsu side was specifically what I had the most skepticism about clearly that has been proven wrong and good for them that it has. Yeah Yeah I'm trying to figure out I I am right there with you in that. You're like okay. We've heard this before that. They're modernizing that they're trying to evolve their offense and it probably took me until that Florida the performance to fully come around not that I always pick them this year because I probably should have. They went undefeated if I wanted to be one hundred percent but the fact act remains that you're just like okay well I get it. They did it against Vanderbilt. They did it against Texas. They did against Utah State but that Florida win the way they separated themselves later. Later on in that game from the gators dropped forty on a good Florida defense at home wrench and then responded even with a pseudo clunker the next week at Mississippi state and a letdown spite. You understand that they still won that game by I think twenty plus points They want another uneven offensive performance against Auburn but they won their clunkers and the rest of the year I think they scored. What forty plus? Maybe they came just short of forty against Georgia but separating themselves from both really good who teams like Georgia and I think an an okay team but completely demolished them Getting Past Alabama the way they did with to a still on the team or to still starting at quarterback albeit hobbled Still able to to slice and dice. LSU defense that game. I just I came away so impressed and wanted to think that there was just going to be down week. Where the new offense just didn't click and maybe there were those weeks but the fact remains I'm still much more impressed oppressed with what they did before the Oklahoma game right because I don't I think both with what the Oklahoma defense was or really was does not this year how they played against Lsu? I don't think that is the most important takeaway game from the Tigers but just for them to be at this point to be led by this offense to be talking about the overshadowed LSU defense. It's such a new way of talking about about this program that I'm thrilled to have underestimated this team. Going into the air. Yeah I I am as well. I'm looking back back on my notes when we did our. Sec Preview now and this was in late. August the question I had for you on. Lsu was just that they went nine and three won the Fiesta Bowl over UCF And they had a really good year last season despite an offensive line that drastically underperformed. Yeah yeah they basically had a remix their offense on the fly to account for it last year as we entered the twenty nineteen season. How confident were you that the position group specifically again offensive line would be able to improve It has improved. No doubt about the offense to whole has has drastically improved now. I know we have a question later on where we're going to talk more specifically about about that line so I don't WanNa go deep down that rabbi. Let's let's shift gears if we could into the Clemson side of things now jer clemson clearly came at this from a much different standpoint being so they haven't lost a game in two years. Yeah oh I guess now. They haven't now now. They haven't lost game two years but prior to the season they were defending national champions. Obviously an incredible performance. Twenty eight point victory over Alabama in the championship that was on the heels with twenty seven point. Victory over Notre Dame in the College Football playoff semifinal trevor warrants had had burst onto the national stage. Maybe in a way that he hadn't prior to either of those games being so he was incredible unstoppable in both of those playoff performances. uh-huh entering the season Clemson was a prohibitive favorite. Maybe not to win the National Championship but certainly being the game right. That was the conversation Alabama Clemson. Come and fight me if you don't think it's one of those two t yeah. It was Alabama Clemson. Everybody else have these. Two teams separated themselves with as well as Ohio. State and Georgia. Georgia have recruited in Oklahoma constantly in the playoff conversation are we you know in the way that the NBA sort of became a Cleveland Golden State for what was it four straight years right like some has become a bit of that where okay what are what are we talking about here is. Is this a sport that is now whittled down to these two halves. The the the talking points on my side of the Clemson argument. Yeah and it's not really an argument because we were both holding on clips and we didn't think they were GONNA lose during the regular season or in the ACC title game to whoever they played like we. We knew this was going to be the cream of the crop in the ACC but we also knew that they were going to be a smidge thinner. Then there are two thousand eighteen version at least on defense because they had to replace four incredible defensive Lineman they're top three linebackers five of their top six tacklers. They also had guys like Hunter Renfro and Mitch Hiatt gone from their offense For most teams. That's a lot to replace. Can't recover from that in one season. But it's way easier when you've got Trevor Lawrence Travis T. N. T. Higgins Justin Ross. The line has been pretty good for them. Despite the fact they lost a key. Contributory Mitch Hyatt's so it it was just like to what end is defense going to bring this as team down knowing full well going into the season that the ACC isn't going to be the strongest conferences right. And and we had seen clemson defenses of your you know lose a nine ten eleven starters. Whatever I don't know eleven starters near but a majority of starters and bounceback as if nothing had changed inched in that's partially due to the fact that there's just crazy continuity on this coaching staff that Brent Venables has been around forever the fact that they play their twos and threes? So much in these blowouts blow outs that. It's nothing new for a guy to start. Because he's getting thirty forty snaps a game as is so it is quite impressive. Recive to see what Clemson on defense losing what they lost and to not miss a step granted the ACC was not having itself a year this now so it was fully. It was almost impossible to say. Well this clemson defense hasn't missed a beat because outside of the North Carolina game. They didn't play a team team. That scored more than twenty against them and it wasn't fully surprise. Given NC state fell to share given what wake forest looked like Laden the season Florida State Louisville these teams were not built to score with Clemson so that wasn't fully as surprise and then when we sell high state score. What twenty three? Yeah that's when you're like okay. There's something with this defense especially when they start out scoring fourteen sixteen points whatever. I am not able to do much after cell so after that so I just man an incredible incredible year for Clemson on both sides of the ball even with some the the slow start that I think Trevor Lawrence had we saw it sort of culminate with what he looked like early on in the Louisville game but since he threw those you know that that grip of passes it's been just lights out impossible from clemson on both sides of the ball so as we turn the corner now and steered steered directly for this game we have on January the thirteenth at eight. PM ON THE ESPN family of networks between Lsu at fourteen zero and Clemson listen at fourteen and now Let me steal a little bit of your thunder. I know you had this topic planned alleged later on in the show but it Clemson Simpson is actually the lower seeded of the teams. They are the defending national champions. Now we know that because of that playoff seeding and maybe because of Dabo Sweeney comments along the course of the season here that he has tried to fashion them as a bit of an underdog. Yeah I mean that's always what he does even when they're fourteen point favorites. They'll say nobody believes we're really fourteen point favorites. That's just nonsense. But in this case they are the legit underdog there. Five and a half half point dog headed into ballgame We know Clemson's a fun team to root for it's never short on personality but can't can you fully subscribe are. Are you fully subscribed to the notion that Clinton is a a real true underdog going into this game. Oh Yeah for sure they are an underdog inasmuch as so much attention has been poured on Lsu. Because it's a better story right now. It's a new story. There's something novel about this program. That could never get it together on offense hiring a young due to be paired in Joe Brady with Steven Singer the the older more grizzled coordinator so they have this season passing game coordinator and he's there to sort of help out. With everything it clicks clicks. It works. Joe Borough is just an assassin These receivers are out of control. Randy mosses son. Is there at tight end. The lion comes together together. Clyde Edwards layer when nothing is really fully working all the time with the passing game. There he is to hand the ball to and he's local to to what Baton Rouge Louisiana Anna. I just it it there's the novelty to LSU has has shined a spotlight on. I guess the Tigers in Baton Rouge that there's nothing P it's easy to overlook Clemson because they're not a new story. This is not an exciting. We've seen Clemson on this stage so it's sort sort of like a forgot about us kind of situation where Dabbagh can say. Well I guess we're not the the sexy new thing anymore. I guess everybody's forgotten about us and and while it is obviously cliche to say nobody believes in US where the underdog that sort of thing can work in a brain it Kinsley a nineteen year. Old Old brain will work as a motivational device of your dabbles. No doubt about it. If you're trying to get your team up for the game as if there's going to be any trouble getting them up for the National Championship but I'm saying to you and I specifically I can't convince myself that there are any kind of underdog here. I know maybe five and a half points is what Vegas who says right. They haven't lost two years twenty nine now. Last two seasons I went back and looked. They've lost three games in four years. That's underdog the dog story. I don't care how you try to paint it so I am excited for this game. I'm not necessarily looking at it. In terms of underdog and favorites and and in that storyline it to me goes out the window because Clemson has been a powerhouse in college football for the last at least five years running. But this this year's team specifically do you feel like there is an underdog element to the fact that yes. They have the struggle against North Carolina. Yeah but also. We didn't really see them. Tested after that. We didn't really see them against great competition until Ohio state and there is just more data ada it's an Lsu. Maybe no matter how long it's been since they've lost. It's been a while. Since North Dakota state has lost two there is a difference between undercover bird. An Underdog Scher undercover. D- You could certainly make a legit case for that right being so they're in the ACC being so like like you said there were flashier stories around college football that may be garnered a little bit more attention but underdog now underdogs a tough. Sell for me okay. I mean I think the biggest killer in this game is still. LSU's offense. I would agree with you with you. That to me already means means that okay. We're looking at the best single thing in this game. Being what Joe Boroughs able to do with the ball in his hands. The heisman winner the guy who won the heisman pretty much out of no where over the presumed favorite or one of the presumed favorites in Trevor Lawrence. Going into the season. So there is that idea of supplanting. The obvious obvious. Champion in Clemson the idea that Lsu has established itself because of this offense as what again. I think we both believed to be the best single thing in this game. That could change Clemson's defense. I have no doubt in. My mind is remarkable. They are remark on all three levels are very very good. And they are stout and they are deep keep and they play with an insane amount of focus in care so I that to me is why Clemson is the underdog simply because Joe Borough where's purple and Gold Lemme or Marshall Injustice Jefferson and Jomar chase course. The Blue macaw award winner where purple and gold that that is why. Let me let me round out. This discussion turned the corner. And actually go into this game. Just by saying that I think. LSU Who is probably the easier team to root for being so they are newer to this football game. Yeah Clemson Oh yeah Even though Clemson is technically technically the underdog by five and a half points. Yeah I mean I think people are always going to love the story more than they are the repeat but I mean for as much success as Clemson has had clemson is not a decades long spotlight team. Like I think going back to when Nick Sabin was at L. S. shirt sort of the beginning of the modern era where I think there is a bigger and wider familiarity with LSU football ball given the personality of less miles given all the NFL players. That have come through there. The last twenty years as opposed to this latest five seven year. Run from Clemson. So so I think John Q.. Public has an Lsu story awareness more than Okechukwu understand. The CLEMSON has become this elite machine. So I I think there's that element to it. It is the College Football playoff national championship presented by. At and T.. They played in New Orleans. Yeah yeah again. LSU Fourteen no a five and a half point favorite over the Clemson Tigers so as we now look head on into this football game. The obvious question is whether an elite clemson defense can slow an elite LSU offense uh-huh and conversely can really good Lsu defense slow. I would still say leak competent offensive. Very Good Char other mazing when you pop the hood on both of those scenarios and look at all the advanced stuff you could zoom in on a few things. That are very intriguing to be honest. I most of that stuff favors clemson. So you can take that at face value if you want. and that's perfectly reasonable or you can add the extra layer a to it and ask does it matter. Corrupt toy wants to no does it matter. Does it matter Dan. That was such a good transition. You're just such a pro. Does it freaking matter. Clemson has a good pass rush. It's different than it was last year. But statistically right very good pass rush very good sack rate. LSU is just okay at protecting. Joe Borough the Heisman even trophy winner. That would seem like a big advantage for Clemson but will it matter Dan. I'm yelling into my microphone. Why do you say they're just okay at protecting? I'm looking I'm looking at advanced stuff. I'm just looking at numbers. Okay Okay Sacree that sort of thing okay. Statistically they're kind of in the middle okay that would seem like a big advantage for Clemson but will it matter. We saw teams. Try to pressure. Joe Borough year nothing seem to faze them. Will it Matt and new. Yeah I- LSU Lsu took on Georgia and their incredible defense and it didn't seem to matter no him out of the pocket he made plays is pretty impressive. Dan Clemson as the best pass defense in America. Yeah statistically it's the Best Lsu seen all year will it matter Lsu hung sixty three on Oklahoma even if you slow them down they're still putting it at least sixty three that was scoring fifty and a half right even if you saw him down a little. It's still what thirty five forty points on the board. Will it matter get the drift here. Yes I get the drift. I'm waiting for you to to ask me for an answer. I'm just yelling here. I know you are and I love it. The big question that is hidden inside your question is what will the back of Clemson's defense look like to make the front of Clemson's defense look even better in their pursuit of Joe Burrow because that back end just best with what they're able to do in concert with the the Brent Venables defense that they run and how well they can disguise how can run with receivers. We saw him do an incredible job with with Ohio. State's receivers that true killer big play That is going to make the front of their defense. And how many different things players like. Isaiah Simmons ends and Tanner Muse can do to disrupt and confuse that to me is the better question of will it matter and I think ultimately it will matter. I don't know if it's going to decide the game but it's going to matter. Yes will it matter. So we've got a whole list of bullet points here that we wanted to go through and determine well. I'm not going to be so cynical that I'm going to sit here and say that none of this stuff is going to matter. I think else. He's offense by largest so good that a lot of it won't don't but certainly some of this well it has to okay. Let's do it first and foremost Dan Clemson probably prepared a lot more for Lsu than they did for home right. I would imagine so. Yes through the advance scouting probably heavily lean toward LSU LSU probably had a split up their advanced perhaps rep so the question would be. How much does that? How much does it matter? How much does that factor in here? I think it's interesting but I don't think it matters. I think Brent Venables is so good on on the fly at diagnosing and communicating that to his team that ultimately I don't know if there's anything that Lsu can do that will catch them off guard they haven't seen but the the skill lies in their ability on the fly so no I don't think it matters fully I I would agree with you and I would add the point of Alabama and Clemson what we've seen from them amid this incredible run. Preparation has certainly been very important. We hear about all the time as we watch college football and the dedication and the hours that assistant coaches and head coach. Put in on this. The adjustments almost matter bore. Yeah By the way if you haven't read it and they're not a partner of ours anymore. Right now Andy Staples Bruce Feldman wrote pieces with Clemson and our guess regarding Clemson and LSU speaking to opposing coaches who coached against against them. This year anonymously a lot of really cool inside. If you if you really want a deep dive this game so I think it matters but I think adjustments are GonNa matter more notable point. Joe Borough has not had to go wire on stage quite like this has he. No in Trevor Lawrence has now. It's not Joe Boroughs Fault thank. LSU was so incredible against Oklahoma that he really hasn't been in this pressure type of situation though SEC championship against Georgia. You know playing Alabama Playing Auburn Burn playing Florida the way that's what those are huge stages. This is just something different. This is non. Sports fans is non college football fans. This is in the superdome which is again i. I don't think it's on our bullet point list but I think that's interesting because L. has sort of recently played in a national championship at Superdome predom- anything goes super well Interesting I think it's no I don't think the stage Ma- matters Adar's as much as the opponent so I'm going to sail to me. It doesn't matter. Yeah you know. There is a semi final back on December twenty eighth. Joe Borough threw for seven touchdowns in one half. Yeah now. I'm not sure the stages real issue here Oklahoma Oklahoma. That's all about. Let me add another one in here at Sonner list but you brought it up. Is there a home. Field advantage factor. Trying to figure that out does that matter figure out if there's a homefield disadvantage that could play into this as well now you're gonNA reverse jinx jinx. It will sort of. I think it's nice to go away. I think it's nice to get locked in. I think it's nice to take that sort of business trip mentality. Where you're away from distractions you? Are you know you're in a hotel doing your run through. It's not just taking a bus and I understand. They're I'm sure they're going to be in a hotel in New Orleans for days as in days leading up to the game but there is a different element of not going away and I am positive the Superdome is going to be very LSU friendly what is what is. I just wonder if that's added pressure. What's your bet for? First College football media member to tweet out. It's like seventy thirty in favor. Avella sue down here. Oh Yeah people love. The proposed feels like a dentist. Dot tweet at maybe eight. Oh Two wow yeah. That's that's that seems right. All right next one. Okay so clemson. Maybe STU Mandel. I could see stupid do that. It's definitely me too thing. Clemson has started slowly against most of the quote unquote good teams on their twenty nine thousand schedule North Carolina Louisville texts. Am Ohio State. Slow starts quickstart against Virginia. I'd go a step. Further that at a fair share of their close calls in each of the last four regular seasons have come against the better teams in their schedule so the Auburn's and Louisville's the NC state of Texas pit UNC. This year like it's it's not just in the vacuum of twenty nineteen season. It's been a recurring theme. It hasn't mattered much. Will it matter here it. I think it will matter yes and it. It looked like he was going to matter against Ohio state and they ultimately couldn't convert a number of opportunities. They had in the red zone. You know plays in which it looked like they were going to score or get very close to score and I don't I don't know that Clemson can get away with that two games in a row. I agree with this. I think I agree with you. I'm going to say yes. It will matter. I'm going to say yes. It's is going to be very difficult to be poised early in the superdome with this kind of crowd no matter how. LSU themselves look. I just think even with Trevor Lawrence playing on the stage it. It'd be impossible not to have a little bit in the way of butterflies a little bit in the way of getting your head on straight until you can sort of figure out your time and place place so I'm GonNa say it will matter that the slow start is going to is going to be something that Clemson even if they pull it out. We'll be something that they come to regret putting themselves selves in a position with next one. Then yeah we talked about Joe Borough not being on a stage quite like this. What about coach or Doron? It's it's true we know Dabo Sweeney been there last year has been there. I don't know how many times now in the last couple of years but coach. Oh is at home. That'll help help. But he hasn't quite managed a game like this hasn't been on a stage like this as a head coach no timeouts and going on fourth down and figuring out if you should spiked get with fifty two seconds left before halftime or just keep the his foot on the gas. I don't know the Latin. I mean I do know the last time they played a game that came down to it. That was Auburn Right. I guess now Alabama came down to it. Yeah that was back Alabama. Yeah L. B.. I'm sure Auburn Alabama. That's incredible opponents. Opponents team's defenses whatever but this is certainly different. They had Alabama I think in Tuscaloosa right yeah and Auburn at home so challenges all all the same but I don't think it matters. I don't think it matters because I think the team is so squarely locked. Get in on that. The gasping pushed at all times. We saw it at the end of the Texas game and what week two on the road where they could have just tried running it and punting into sort of Hoping for the best to run out the clock and they didn't and that was the continued theme that Team is here to be aggressive so I think they're always going to err on the side of aggression Shen. They have that identity built into their DNA at this point. So I'm gonNA say maybe early. It matters a little but ultimately over the course of four quarters if they lose they lose. But I don't think it's going to be because of game management and because I would agree with this to back with that took the words right out of my mouth. Guess another one here. You'RE GONNA have to explain Blaine this in a little more detail because you came up with these. LSU pretty late in the year keeping track of mobile quarterbacks dealing with now quarterback what what examples are you referring to here for listening audience the official Sec West quarterback of the The solid verbal Janis. He's Plumlee ran all over the LSU defense and that's just situation ably situation ably situationally somewhat understandable. That was the week after Obama their second consecutive Game on the road. And I you know I feel about the double roads But there is that element of okay we can pick Hick on the middle of LSU's linebacking corps a little bit sideline to sideline and we saw. Sam allender move the ball some In that Texas game they ha- was completely stifled and he is a mobile quarterback. I get that and obviously jalen hurts. Ran Some but ultimately not in a difference making way but there is that element of you know grant help. It was heard and when he showed some of that. The the injury affects rate is not great in the open field tackling tackling. But they hold a give points that give yardage you can run on them some. You can run on them. But we're talking about mobile quarterbacks. Would you classify Trevor Lawrence as has a John. Reese plumlee kind of runner I think he I think he's better. He ran in sixty some odd yard touchdown against Ohio state. He is a dual threat quarterback in a dual threat it off. You classify him as as a running quarterback. I would classify him as a quarterback who is able to run at a high level. Not Lamar Jackson not Johnny Menzel. But he is able to pick up third and eight with his legs he is able to turn a four yard run into a thirty one yard. Run Yeah I would say his athleticism lettuce ISM is absolutely an aspect of his game and those are two threats passing and running so yes dual threat Janis. Plumlee ran the ball more than twenty times. Yeah it's a different aspect but yeah over half of his starts this year. It's a much much different system. Trevor Lawrence. Orange by comparison ran at sixteen times in that semifinal against Ohio state too great avail very good over what six and a half yards a carry so clearly very effective the I don't know if that includes sacks but nonetheless Barry's game is part of very offense yeah That was the first time that I can remember and Clemson fans might lampoon me for this but that was the first time I can remember using Trevor Lawrence in that capacity. Yes and no I mean. They're not gonNA run him. I'm against no wake and NC state that way but he's very he's very athletic he can do it if he has to Just He. He's he strikes me as much more for a guy that they like to keep in the pocket and utilize his arm. No it's a different offense. And it's a rich rod offense for Ole Miss but Trevor Lawrence against I'm seeing North Carolina. He had eleven carries. This may include Sacks Against Louisville ten carries Ohio State Sixteen carries generally. He's under his single digit carries assurance. The not not mute of their schedule. If I'm being kind but yeah back to the days of Chad Morrison Taj Boyd into Shawn Watson Kelly Bryant L.. These guys they are told you. Keep the ball on this sort of option when you see this and here's a dry here near the goal line. Here's a dry here. On first and ten we saw that the the final drive that the run game quarterback run game was part of Clemson. So if it's part of the game part of that offense then it's part of the offense. I don't think this is a huge just threat. I think they were able to use it effectively against Ohio state. I'm not buying it as something that matters a whole lot here. I think it matters all right. I think is going to have success us on the ground with Trevor Lawrence maybe not Travis CTN. He's struggled against some of the better defenses clemson his face and has kept some games closer but I think Trevor Lawrence and his ability with his legs is going to be a not insignificant factor. Daniel working out is hard. It's always been hard hard you know even when it's easy it's still pretty tough. Bomba's socks can change. That agree. They can make it more comfortable. So if your resolution shen is to get more fit in twenty twenty start by getting socks that can keep up every step of the way. I actually got Bomba socks for Christmas. We saw pictures from from listeners. Getting them as well bomb has been a longtime supporter of the show. Whether you're into sports or planning on getting very into sports or getting fit Baba's can help with performance socks socks in styles made specifically for basketball tennis running. Goff you name it. They're designed for everything from running to hiking cycling and much much more plus they. It provides support in places. You didn't know you needed it. And like you're arches like a nice little hug around your mid foot go to bomb US dot com slash solid. Today you will get twenty percents off your first purchase that is Baba's dot com slash solid for twenty percent off again Bama's dot com slash solid alad and. Oh by the way for every pair purchased. Baba's going to donate a pair to someone in need so get in on the fun. Get comfortable feet and help donate do it. Moving on Daniel Here's something that we talked about. Earlier we teased. We'd we'd be talking about later. The offensive line is it vulnerable particularly on the edges. Does that matter. Maya my answer is yes. They're vulnerable my answer is also yes clemson while they don't have the world beaters. Upfront that allowed Brent. Venables Venables to be crazy flexible in the back end of their defense like they had last year. Even Without Dexter Lawrence in the playoff I think the athleticism at Linebacker I mean as Ahah Simmons's they might be the best defensive player in the country The flexibility the variety of looks at Clemson can throw at Lsu and LSU's front. I think it's GONNA matter. I think Joe Borough is going to be forced into some uncomfortable situations which has generally not bothered him. But I think it's going going to have an effect on this game clemson's ability to confuse and get home a couple times in key moments against Lsu. Yeah I think I think it matters to. And we know that Brent Venables very creative he comes up with ways to generate pressure The larger question is will that pressure matter for Joe Borough who've been very midden face of pressure all year. Well they did they. They had some trouble with Auburn Auburn. Through like a weird three one seven defense at them and maybe this is something else else we can get into with another one of these bullet points but Clemson is not gonna be able to get home with their front four like they have been able to do like we saw you know just the the best defense is of the past hundred years of football. The guys you can get home with the more just crazier from Mizzou's defense with Craig Gulag Hausky Alabama's recent defenses Auburn's recent defenses Washington when they went to the playoffs. Almost never blitzed. Clemson doesn't have that ability but I think you're right I think what Brent Venables abled stew with confusion and stunts and slants. Whatever I think it's going to matter I think? LSU's offensive line is good. I I just don't think it's incredible. I think I agree with you. Okay on that one. What do one or two more you see me on here that you want to make sure we cover here is one thing? I was curious about audio. No it's doesn't matter but it's just. I was trying to figure out if somebody had experienced succeeding against either one of these offenses offenses or defenses. And as we've seen in years past sometimes these guys will like go to the facility. Very quietly and consult Kevin Steele the the Auburn Defensive Coordinator looks to me to be the only person who's actually succeeded against recent Clemson and this year's Lsu now obviously Auburn and play. I clemson this season. And obviously there's the overlap of I think both of these teams play Texas. Am Yes yes. All of these teams shutdown Texas offense but the Kevin Steele thing is interesting. I Want I looked. I didn't see him do any interviews or I don't think anybody that could find has has written anything using using what he is what he's been able to do at Auburn. Both in shutting down Clemson with both the Shawn Watson and Kelly Bryant and what he did this year in holding Lsu to twenty twenty. Three points But I I wonder because Kevin Steele was both at Lsu and at Clemson. I think he's on better terms with coach. Oh because I think Daboh I'm they called it not a firing but it was. It was not a great end to Kevin Steele's tenure no with Clemson after to the Orange Bowl against West Virginia. I wonder if there's some Kevin Steele whispering to coach. Oh about the CLEMSON offense. I wonder Dave rant and not the Dave Aranda isn't capable himself south and we haven't even talked about the LSU defense. I wonder if there's something going on can't steal anything else here I mean we didn't mention the defense. That's sort of the one thing we haven't mentioned in talking about Clemson's offense and Trevor Lawrence and we didn't mention his targets and those offensive weapons weapons but the defense has allowed points this year. I think they're pretty drastically. Improved from where they were midseason as they've unhealthier especially the as some of the freshmen. Like Derek Sting. Lee has gotten a really good amount of important experience but the fact remains outside of the dual threat thing. They've allowed points. They've allowed big plays they. They've been thrown on. They've messed up and big situations. They've been run on both by court of HEX and otherwise otherwise is there does. LSU's season of uneven results on defense matter to you against an offense as talented as claps. Okay absolutely absolutely. And it's part of the reason why I think there are a lot of points in this game. Sure I think it's probably a shootout points in this game. I think both offenses are so good. So good that neither defence is going to have an answer right so I favor a lot of points here but specific to Lsu absolutely Salihi matters definitely so I guess can we can we play. I don't know if this is a game but I asked you to rank the outcomes. Do you want to do that now or do you want. We could close thing. Is this the dive deep. Sound that play the deep deep dove. Captain Time Lieutenant Damn you have clearance it. Is that finebaum underwater. I Dunno might be some sort of underwater ghosts who hey How does this work so I? There are six pretty obvious outcomes in this game while they're sick they're only are. It's either one of these teams winning small medium or big So I would imagine like if you go back to the was it. Twenty Twelve Notre Dame Alabama. Yeah the most obvious blowout would i. It was impossible to think about Notre Dame blowing at Alabama. If they're going to win it was going to be ugly With led by defense winning the game. Seventeen thirteen something like that. So the most likely blowout that year was Alabama right to you before we get the most likely blowout is who over. Who In this game most likely blowout is who of if somebody wins this game? Forty two twenty. Who would you be more surprised surprised or less surprise however you WanNa word it To See as the victor I would be stunned if Lsu blew out clemson. Wow okay And I say that because I was stunned last year. When Clemson blew out Alabama just in C- a blowout coming so I WANNA moines less S. than what Clemson beat Notre Dame or one point more employ more right Notre Dame's differential? Yeah so I guess just with that in mind I will be much more surprised is if Lsu did it than Clemson did it. Because we've seen Clemson do it against a really good opponent back and forth on this. I think you're probably correct correct. Because in order to blow a team out it has to happen on both sides and I think Johnson has the ability to both shut down and take the other defense to the woodshed So I think that's probably right but I also don't think it's the most likely outcome. I know it is and his blowing out. So what is the most likely likely outcome for you then so if we think of it in terms of Lsu by a small margin what do we consider a small margin medium margin and a big blowout margin. So I have eight points or fewer so one possession game okay has a small marsh and then medium. I have nine to fourteen and then large. If you're winning fifteen plus fifteen fifteen and sixteen or two possession games but you pretty busy you see a final score of thirty five to twenty. That's a very comfortable win. Okay so both teams by a small. Aw medium or large margin. Which which team do you think is most likely to win? And by what margin I have the most likely margin margin as LSU small. As do. I I have that as the most likely margin. LSU winning by eight or fewer points because even with Clemson as the more seasoned more complete team. I'm still going to Roland with the thing I believe the most in and that's the LSU offense and how impossible and futile. It seems for defenses to stop as talented as Clemson's is also fell behind sixteen nothing to another excellent offense and it's excellent offense in Ohio state that I don't think it's as good as Lsu's so yeah. I I find my answer I agree with you on. LSU ASSU small. I think if I'm betting I bet the points I take Clemson plus the points. There's a lot of history there. CLEMSON's been on the stage before before. If you're telling me that the game comes down to a field goal comes down to the last second play. It's back and forth Joe. Boroughs got the ball in his hands. He wins by four sure. That makes a lot of sense to me. Doesn't make sense as LSU minus anything. I would take Clemson plus five and a half and I'd be happy to be wronged. Don't bet your life savings on it that being said I think Lsu winds and I think Lsu mom with you. I think that's the most likely outcome here. So yeah I have. LSU small small number one. I have clemson small number two okay And then I number three. I actually have clemson big okay because because of my the clear I most concerning thing is the Lsu defense as strong as they are at various various points in that defense. I think from what we've seen with them against Alabama even early on and I don't think this matters all that much but Texas did score on them I think that is that is my answer. That things like last year can get out of hand with. I mean the best I defensive back in this game is still probably. Aj Terrell just the best and most season lockdown defender to me I Yeah I guess it depends on how you classify Simmons because he plays a little bit of everything. Sure but I think there is that element of clemson comes out a little more uncomfortable because of where they've been and jump out to an early lead and Lsu's a little bit rattled and little bit pressing and playing from behind like they haven't been able to do and it just. It goes from bad to worse so I think I agree with you. In that a- clemson blood is more likely than an Lsu blowout so that's my number three let me ask you this the over-under here a sixty nine and a half. Yeah would you go over under that. So that's my my quick math works out that's like thirty seven thirty two type score in favor of Lsu. Yeah if it's right on there and nobody really scoring forty If it's you know adheres to that five ish Spread five six points For the record just so you know. Lsu Put up forty eight point nine points per game name which was first in the nation and Clemson forty five point three which is fourth in the nation and Clemson's defense. I don't think allowed a team to score more more than twenty. North Carolina scored twenty. Everybody else was like twenty three in the playoff but beyond that now sorry yeah during the regular season BS. Twenty three in the playoff against Ohio state which holding Ohio State to Twenty Johny Three Holy. Wow I think I'm inclined to take the over. Yeah I would be too. I think shootout I think I think a lot of points points And you know to my earlier point I I see a back and forth game I do think. LSU Wins because of that offense. Usually I don't like to pick based solely on offense which is probably why Clemson's of winning never take the under. It's not fun at all. It's not fun to take the under- I see a back and forth game a lot of appoints I could definitely see a scenario where. LSU gets one extra possession and they score Sharon for that reason I make second most likely. LSU medium my order is Lsu small LSU medium clemson big wow or medium likely that Clemson is just so very clearly better than they are barely better yes okay I'm GonNa go out on a limb. Wow I like that. LSU small LSU medium Clemson Big Clemson medium clemson small and I think the least likely outcome here is Lsu BEC- because of that Clemson defense see I have Lsu big at number four okay and then Lsu medium and then clemson medium. I've Lsu big nick because we know what that looks like. This is not something we have to form out of the ether. We know what happens when Joe Borough is supremely confident in what a defense is trying against him and what his own team's counterpunch is or the they have no ability to stop us now. Oklahoma's defense is nowhere near Clemson's defense but the heights of Lsu's offense to me says if they're clicking and they figure out this clemson defense early and they have the counter-punches if it's job radio verse Brent Venables and Joe Brady has all of you know whatever he stacking receivers like he does a running the option routes like he does out of the slot there is a world in which Lsu. We've seen it recently. We've seen them poor almost fifty on Bamut again. It's not Alabama's Best Defense of the last decade. But we've seen a world in which the Lsu just pours it on a team offensively and it's a healthier Lsu defense I again. They're the most concerning element of this game. Still Tall Really Good Defense Rashad Lawrence inside. It's still claimed Jason on the edge. It's still Derek Grant Delta. This is a team that can turn over team this team that can stack pick sixes and short fields. There is a world in which LSU wins this game forty five to twenty six or something like that. Yeah so my next question here. We got to give our picks of the week as we bring it home here on our final preview review show of the twenty nineteen twenty twenty season. GimMe a final score. GimMe a prediction. Tell me why so if my least likely outcome is ella small that would make sense for me to take LSU small. I'm going to take Lsu to win the game. Forty one to thirty four forty one thirty four. I think there are touchdown better. I think it's back and forth. I think maybe maybe there's a special team situation that that changes things I know. LSU In the What the kick coverage game hasn't been amazing? No and at least when teams teams have been able to return the ball I think there's a special team situation that changes the scope of things I I'm hopeful that Clyde Edwards words Allaire is fully healthy and recovered from his hamstring issues. Otherwise I become a little bit more worried because he was that key cog against Alabama. But there's something about Clemson that I'm not fully therewith and I don't know why I don't know if it was the START I don't know what it was against Ohio state where they needed some things to break their way to come back and I think it's a little bit more difficult against this. LSU offense so forty one thirty four in and one of the all-time Great National Championship Games. I think it's going to be an amazing football game. I think they're going to be a lot of points. I've got LSU issue winning at the gun. Forty five forty two again Lotte. Points joke girl Joe Berle has to lead the LSU tigers. Agar's down the field to score in New Orleans to win the National Championship I have no idea why we think this clemson defense is going to give up. So how many points. But I I honestly think Joe Borough is What he's done this year? It's a generational performance. So let's put it this way anyone's going to do it. This year is going to be Joe. Borough now wow I think a lot of points uncharacteristically so for the Clemson defense. Maybe I'm nuts. which is entirely possible for doing this all year by I've got LSU by three on taking Clemson plus the points? And I agree with you that there may be a special team situation here. It's it's the only thing one of the only things that jumps out on paper as a pretty big disparity between LSU which has been pretty good on special teams by large large and Clemson. And we've gone this whole show. Not even talking about not higgins and Justin Ross and Travis T. N.. And their ability I mean. They've won the national championship Cheb. We've seen what Justin Ross is able to do on a stage like this man. What a Just the receivers in this game. I'M NOT GONNA go through year by I year to look at the receiving chorus from what we've seen I remember Oregon's was very beat up but I the I mean if you're going. Justin Ross Not Higgins Jamar chess. Justin Jefferson Terrace. Marsh Clemson doesn't have a world beater at tight end whereas Lsu is kind of a match up nightmare Fatma's at times. But what if you like receive verse. I like receivers on corners this is this is pornography tie yeah. I can't wait and like we can talk about the fact that you know Clemson's secondary and mentioned Tanner Muse earlier. Maybe he's a weak point. I'm curious to see if LSU generate some mismatches in the slot against Tantrum the museum. I'm curious to see what what Clemson's able to do with their receivers against analysis secondary that I mean they're they're painted on on receivers every week. Sure this is I. It looks to be an incredible collection of matchups outside. I just don't know. Oh how either defense covers their opponents. Wide receivers yeah sixty minutes worth. I don't know how you do it. I really hope that you really get up and press distress. And it's fine with a safety. I'm not hoping for that but I am hoping that you know you. You got a lot of fifty fifty moments that just became hinges on so many different tiny tiny little seconds. That's the best. I don't know how you cover these receivers for sixty minutes and I don't know how you cover them with the constant threat of two really good running backs clad travis ignoring travis. CTN He and who's been perpetually underrated or under covered at least as a star player for the Clemson Tigers. Yeah it was mostly shutdown by Ohio state and still manage to have arguably the biggest moment in the game are the maybe two biggest moments game for storms them. So there you go we're both taking. LSU Yep Dan by a little bit of larger margin than I cover. Yeah you think they cover. I'm not willing to go there. We will be watching the game together on Monday evening. I'm driving up to your homestead shortly after I get out of mysterious day job Monday afternoon. we are going going to convene in record our recap episode early on Tuesday and drop that hopefully before lunchtime get that out into the college football ether so you can digest it it on your ride to from work now and they were going to hang out and Enjoy the season. That was this past I don't know five or six months. Yeah it's our own personal wrap party or sit cool. I'll be making the solid verbal. The official dip of the solid rebel that juries Odette shy shy. Bring anything you want me to bring anything me to make anything that you particularly proud of that. You think that would make a good addition. I don't know if there will be other people watching with us. Do you want me to make my Taco dip where I pour on the tostitos Salsa whatever you want sure I'm sure it's delicious on top of a luscious bed of sour cream cream cheese. He's and Mexican cheese from WEGMANS. I don't know if my body can fully end all okay. My my stomach has not been a friend of dairy recently. But I'm willing to try everything Yeah I'll probably also get pizza. So yeah there's GonNa be a cheese factor anyway. Why the hell not follow along with us on twitter? Follow along on instagram. Check out the facebook page. Dan and I are going to be posting. We're GONNA be offering running commentary at some point throughout the course of this week. I'm going to post my props. Selections for the Coming Football Game. They're all out yet. There are a few interesting but I wanNA wait until there's a more complete offering before I offer for my recommendations I know everyone's on the edge of their seat waiting for these but give me a little bit more time to try and calculate what I think the best player. Yeah we're recording. This obviously say Tuesday for the two screws and we have not seen a full list of game and player props. I wonder do you know who's doing is our halftime show. I should have come prepared. Well I don't don't know about the halftime show but we did. We did Actually Simpson. We did make reference earlier to the broadcast and ESPN is again doing. It's it's mega cast. So of course I Chris Fowler. Kirk herbstreet are going to be on the call Tom Rinaldi emory Taylor going to be working the sidelines as they typically do there will also be the field pass which is going to feature our good friend Adam. Amin along with Steve Levy. They're going to have PAT MAC III. Dan Orlovsky off ski on the field. As well. Great there's going to be a coach's film room on Espn you. They have not announced yet. Who those coaches will be? Hopefully it'll be Kevin Steele. That'd be neat. Thomas would probably be one desire. There can only know if I have to the command center. It will be on. ESPN news which is where they show you all the angles Get about four different vantage points at any moment They'll have the data data center on the Goal Line Network. ESPN search excited case. You excited to call. Shower will be the data. This says the real time stats and analytics and social media commentary and then there'll be the hometown radio on the ACC and SEC networks. Oh I I like that. Yeah so they'll have the hometown radio calls featuring the Clemson Tigers network and the LSU. Sports Radio Network. I do like that we both picked Lsu so technically Dabbagh. Ken At us to the pile of nonbelievers there is a sounds of the game on ESPN classic. WHOA I'm reading this off? The press release it allows viewers to imagine themselves inside the superdome. Asmar so it's it's like the no announcer experience like they've done that with NBA Games allows allows viewers to match themselves inside the Superdome as the game. Presentation will feature all all the natural audio from the stadium including the band performances. I assume no three D.. No three no three. We have a rough cast on the ESPN APP which was the the streaming from their hats. John Perry Matt Austin and Judson Howard. provide reaction running commentary from a referee's perspective so it doesn't I don't think the hat cam will be involved here. Can we set up a feed in which it's just Mama h describing the action in over the phone We could try that okay That would be great. I've had I mean I'm sure you've had this situation to where you're not able to watch the game and you're like texting with somebody furiously on the phone. Like Yep nope okay. Oh Jason you just have no idea what's going on. I would love to have a mom. H We'll see Indo Indo okay. We'll figure that. Thank you to everyone out there for tuning in not just for this show but all season long.

The solid verbal we with you all throughout the calendar year. Even if they're not playing the football games or knows plenty of college football to discuss as we forge ahead into the long doldrums. That is the twenty twenty off all season. Yeah can I add one more thing please. If you're going to this game eat literally anywhere very happy in New Orleans because it is the best if you want specific places I like I don't know There's Willie mays for Fried Chicken. There's a killer Po boys there's is also sorts of places. Sylvain is very very good. If you don't feel like specific like Cajun food but they still have Cajun options Bevy is sort of a little little outside of all the the touristy area for boys and stuff like that but you literally had anywhere anywhere local. Don't don't do everything you can not to eat at CPAC for saying that guy over there my good friend Dan Rubenstein for Myself Tie Hildenbrand. We'll be back yet.

Well I'M GONNA put a picture up of you and Harry Everyone who was there. But it Jim you you had fun right. Yeah absolutely thank you for having me. You're hitting on my wife's friend. I think you ask Harry to get her number. She was sitting on me. Mary told me I was gold. Harry he's like your good. Hey did say well. I don't know I don't know how gold because then she showed. My wife showed her your picture I think yesterday and she She acknowledged that she remembered you. But that was it really perfect. So I don't know who dropped the ball you or Harry but what are you going to do. Whatever I don't want you to focus on that I need you to focus on your two million dollar pick which has lost the last two weeks the last two weeks you gave us that? So that's coming up later right And in the meantime let's get these guys on my gurus of gambling. My Wizards of wagering my barons of betting my overlords of the odds. Degener- retry factor. Harry brother Brian Darren the parlay kid. What's happening fellas what's going on? So what's up. Sow what's going on buddy. I'll listen you guys. What so last time we were on you guys gave spats parlay kid did well? We're going to give more best bets later in the show. We're going to preview. LSU Alabama we're going to pick an NC double A.. Champion we're going to dive into the top two games games of the week in the NFL. But I I have to mention it was Tuesdays Tuesday afternoon now and I don't know why I'm so delighted but the cowboys kick the crap out of the giants parlay again. We're in first place behalf. A game gotta feel good about that right. Yeah I feel good about it. I think you know I had the cowboys so I they want me some money too at the same time so but I I don't know kicking the crap out of his That might be a little bit of an overstatement. I mean I think we were sweating leading it out a little bit more than we should have had to Last night they kind of pulled away at the end but You can see why I mean. This team is five and three southern but there should be better than a five and three team. Though I think there's there's no weaknesses on this team really really doing only weaknesses. Five and three is that at the halfway point to me is almost not good enough at this point for this team with this type of talent but we'll take the win. I mean look. We pulled the way we we made. Jones look bad. We'll talk about it. I'm sure a little bit later. Harry is always on Darnold but Jones look darnold ish last night and up and Saquon had his Got Eaten up by Sean Lee Old Man Sean Lee on dominate Saquon. Barkley spying him out of the backfield except for one play saquon absolutely nothing these guys. He looked like two thousand thirteen. Two thousand fourteen showing up and filling in for Vander. Asha was banged up neck. Back injury We want thirty seven eighteen year right. It wasn't easy one handed catch early. But the Golden Tate. Hey what does that got US scared. But then we pulled away Harry. I duNNo. You still believe in this giants team you pick them to win division. I don't know what kind of odd you got. Sixteen to one right now. There are one hundred ten to one I would give you two hundred two hundred and fifty to one odds if you WanNa do you want it. You're a big. John was trying. I was trying to Guys Chops thing that season. I didn't think they were really going win. Win The dishes like some idiots on twitter think but but anyway at the giants play call Shurmur is is play the ball and that's the play calling. Every single play to Barclay was up the middle. I'm begging for them. Telling you begging firm to get a pitch to the outside so it can maybe get to the corner or something. It's just awful. Play calling and and Jones. Can't I mean he makes some decent place when he takes money. But you gotta hold on the ball. Fumbles routine ain't in Saint Augustine. I'm not saying I'm just saying hold on the ball and have some creative play calling pleads. That's talk about this they're not good. Thank you for busting our CIA any losing pick now Harry Gibbs. He's busting our chops just just for the record but honestly they should be one win team. They beat Tampa on a day that Tampa didn't show up. They missed like four kicks their defense was non existent otherwise you have your A.. One win team. You're you're throwing the compensation with Miami and Washington and Cincinnati and then you can pick another quarterback but the six teams Dallas thrown in for for not being in a championship game since Nineteen ninety-six. Okay is what you don't worry about the president. Don't worry about the past. We're good at the gold nugget contest. Let's talk about Iranian terrorists over. How did you do this week? The one five and one I definitely Whatever buddy I told you had the line move teams so I didn't drop that much? I drop them third third thirteenth. I'm a half game out of ten. Th and three wins out of. I don't fill you glad the bragging although it seems like it just continued and with that statement but are you glad to the bragging is over for the most part I mean I don't know is it over though I feel like we're still getting it because even said Oh you you had a bad week. Then he starts saying well well no. I went three in one on this other thing. You see you know we can't pick and choose I don't know Three and one on one hundred six. Oh ooh that's on on my Hidden Gems which are games. That people wouldn't really bad or look at I doing it for six weeks and haven't had a losing using weeks. Since the hidden gems are coincidentally hidden seven eighths down the article. Whatever you're writing it out I appreciate shape that thank you?

Yeah I wrote that the gym from Columbia and I like dinosaurs. I agree with the Harry. two-faced face part but the ridler and the Joker Batman or no. I don't know but like I said that's a cousin. Sal Against All odds at G MAIL DOT COM gives us a give us and find out I want I want to know who's out there to generate gambling hall of fame. I know you're out there. Stop hiding now. We're going to get to the NFL not a lot of good games in week. Ten Eagles or off the Patriots are off. The Texans are off those are those are some of our favorite teaser. Teams Jaguars Redskins also off. I don't care I think we twelve is spectacular accurate. Next week's okay this week. Giants jets raiders chargers Thursday night. All of a sudden intriguing brother Bry. We'll be there on the field but let's let's look at Seattle at San Francisco. It's a Monday night. Game San Francisco favored by six. The over there is forty six. My God they keep winning. They won Thursday night that Thursday night. Games weird they pulled it out. Jimmy G. threw four touchdown passes kind of the game. They were looking for at him they kind of needed it because they only won twenty. Twenty eight twenty five. Meanwhile Seattle just looks like an impossible out in the playoffs right now and they're not even in first place Russell. Wilson's doing anything. He wants just in Britain being out out the center they'd be exposed not the case. He went crazy career high five touchdowns he went nuts. They beat they beat Tampa Bay and covered a lot of people very very upset. Lots of shops at Tampa Bay. Let's go this parlay kid. Who Do you like? Everyone seems to like Seattle six because like I said there are a tough out. They only play the aims. Close Games. What do you think yeah I think so? I think he gotTa Take The plus six year with Seattle. There are eight no against the spread and that lasts eight as underdogs underdogs right. So that bodes. Well we know that secondary's not great We Know San Francisco is really good on both sides of the ball. But we really gonNA give Russell Wilson six points here I don't think you can't bet against that. We've talked about this before he's the leading. MVP candidate right now in the NFL and rightfully so twenty two touchdown passes I think one interception he makes plays with his feet when he has to make all types of throws this kid metcalfe's I wanNA picks he wasn't he was the sixty four th pick in the draft lasts just almost every team could have had them they all pass them right. They were talking about him going in the first round. He like a freak athlete but then it was Hayes as just a workout warrior. Is that the type of player is well. The guy is really starting to step up his game. There and Seattle really given and Russell Wilson like another. You know another weapon on that team and I just can't take the Seattle with getting the six I I don't know oh I'm not going to predict a winner here but they stay they keep it within that that amount style so let's take Seattle. Yeah you mentioned mccafe. Simmons and I talked about them on Sunday tonight that was. What did he go? Bri was like the fifth receiver taken. I mean he was. The fastest had the best combat combine numbers. And just. You showed his face after the one after the other Hollywood brown all these guys went before him and then there was mad. Can't put a nice compliment. That is what was he. Yeah thank you want. I think he went six but that was a funny thing. I mean there was projections leading up to it after the combine. Like top ten. They had the raiders. Taken them really early at one point in time and then it's funny like nothing. Really negative negative came out. It was just like oh well you might have an injury history. Maybe he's just you know big and fast and he you know he can't catch the ball so like it was amazing that he felt that far really. Do you think Seattle had their way with Tampa Bay which we know after playing. The giants said that they'll just allow points to anybody and some of these. But do you think a team like San Francisco could keep Russell and check and expose the fact that they have a backup center and some offensive line issues You know it's funny. I I think it almost doesn't matter. The one thing about Seattle is it almost doesn't matter who they're playing defensively. I feel like Russell Kinda does what he needs to do to get the point so I I feel like every game here is right. It's every Seattle game. You were saying pretty much the same right. We've talked about this before it's like twenty seven twenty four or it's like thirty one twenty seven. Every game comes down to Russell having a chance at the end of the game pretty much. I mean if you look at every game they got it pretty much happened that way. So that's why even in this game so that's why I like the over forty six. I mean to me that seems low because you have two of the top seven often offense to going against each other again. I think San Francisco is gonNA score on Seattle. Seattle hasn't shown the ability to stop anybody yet but Russell's still going to score. You're on the right I mean that's that's the that's the thing so that's why I don't know forty six just seems that seems low to me because I again I think. Do you think Russell Not GonNa Score. You think he's willing to put up seventeen points against him. He's still going to get his points right in this game. The the one quarterback they face San Francisco last week was was Murray. You know. And they put up twenty five right so I this is GonNa be similar type Games so I again. I think this should normally be like forty eight forty forty nine point but if you just mentioned I'm sorry but the over Eur five five straight Seattle road underdog and I don't remember too much and like you say okay all close games. They've won eight straight one point games. Forget about the others. I know that one like three point games and everything else between they win those those games were Zor line. Kicks it over the the over the upright and stuff like that but every game is closed every game seems to be high scoring. I kind of like it too. Like both these guys picks the seahawks lost the points. It's and the over forty six. Let's get the Dallas Minnesota. Harry you have an over under here cowboys favored by three Minnesota. Not Great on the road and it's just a weird weird team to try to figure out here but Harry we haven't heard from you. Let's talk about you like the over. I'm seeing a lot of trends that suggest under under. Yeah you know I do like the over forty seven. I mean I unfortunately don't matter of time until Dallas is often gets rolling like Monday night for the giants. It's really a non matter of if when Dallas I and totally are per game getting four hundred and forty seven yards fourth overall in rushing. Also pains pains me to say that the thirty two points a game at home Twelve hundred yards rushing as a team five yards carry. I mean the Vikings are nine. I offense third in rushing in the NFL but like you just said Salad. Different team defensively especially on the road Where they are instead of how dominant they are at home on their only two and three on the road? They've fifty six points in the last two Road Games Stafford let them up three weeks ago. Three sixty four and four touchdowns Damian Williams at the chiefs got the Vikings thinks last week. for one hundred twenty five and a touchdown. I think the vikings are talented and often cooks been great Cousins has been good I think they're going to get their points. I think it can get up to like twenty seven points but I think Dallas again. They scored thirty home. I mean I think there was one thirty one twenty seven close by the spread but the game goes over. I think game land about sixty sixty all right. Well Dole's going on there and six of the Vikings last eight road games under and four. They'll ask five verse two cowboys. It could be AH PARLAY KID. I feel more confident in this game than I did with the giants. I don't know if I should. I know one in six against the cowboys never with the Viking gala but as a member of the redskins their own six straight up and against the spread and their last six games. The Vikings are as an underdog cowboys. Eight one in straight up last night at home. Sorry from using some of your friends here but like Dallas minus three right. Yeah so are you ready. Gave some of the information right there. And you're you're spot on you get the feeling to with this. Dallas Defense Tank Lawrence right like it finally really showed up last night. had a little edge to them. again and we talked about his team's being is five and three. I think there are better than a five and three and one thing. We have to talk about his most likely. No Adam feeling in this week for the Vikings That is a huge loss for the vikings for cousins on the road where they don't play too well anyway right. The the only thing that kind of scares me here is is there is there a Mike. Zimmer Revenge factor here. You know you gotta kind of never got the head. Coaching job in Dallas Alison. I I don't know if it's too far removed now but I wonder if there's any that sentiment in the Vikings locker room like hey. Let's win this coach. I don't think there is. I think that's too far are removed. Thousands offense is fourth in the League in rushing fourth in passing which equals number one offense in the league And I think they seem. I'm hoping now the point where they're going to get on a little bit of a roll I think Harry and I were talking about that Before we started about the maybe this is the time now the cowboys get on this role. Their offense offense becomes kind of unstoppable. They're healthy We saw jeff go out of the game last night if that's their only injury. That addition by subtraction action as far as I'm concerned right Oh my gosh I shouldn't be in the NFL Jeffey. Let's put anybody else out there. It's an upgrade Dallas covers the spread. I could tell I could see this being a thirty. Th Twenty Score Dallas wins at home. They continue momentum. They kind of build their lead in the NFC east the. Let's take the cowboys minus three. I broke down a lock in today as the Eagles play. You look at the next six games or whatever the I you just look at the next two eagles play as far as the NFC East dominance they play the Patriots and Seahawks Patriots when they come back and see how this is after the Phillies by cowboys. Play the Vikings and at Detroit which probably favored definitely favorite and this one probably favored at Detroit. or one point right in there you pick up a game there. You're up a game and a half. What six left? That's pretty good odds for Dallas in the NFC east. But I I agree with you. I was thinking about the Zimmer thing too but haven't really really heard much about it. I don't even know if anyone remembers that it was a cowboys. Actually tabloids wanted three teams ranked top five in the NFL scoring offense and scoring defense. This season season Patriots. Forty niners the other two. I know I like I like a win at home on Sunday night as well I would shy away from the over. I think thirty twenty is probably close. It's too close to the forty seven but I do like how minus three. Let's take a quick break all right. Hey guys let me ask what if you had your Own personal recruit or to help you find a better job.

It's very confusing right. Yeah that's Ziprecruiter take over your life life it'll help out a lot all right. Lsu Alabama. That's a big college game worn versus two depending on what polls you're looking at Alabama minus six sixty five the over on their to his status unknown until God. So how'd you bet this. How do you bet this Harry talk about knowing you're taking the underdog that's how you're betting but really if you take an Alabama? How could you do it without knowing if to starting you're right I mean that's why I'm taking the six? Of course I mean I'm banking to starting obviously but look Lsu the number one team in the country that you have to take I have. I have STA totally arch per game. They're better than Bama their fifth. Second in passing Bama's schedule-wise. LSU's play much tougher schedule They played at Texas. Where borough borough Made A name from south. We went for four seventy one four touchdowns Wide Wide Receivers Justin Jefferson then tomorrow at three hundred yards. Combine that game three touchdowns They've beaten Florida. They beaten Auburn Alabama. The best team they played I guess would be Texas thing in them and talking to say past win this year against Mississippi. I I I mean. I think that Definitely that was used favor Borough has a thirty three touchdowns picks I know to a has the experience here but I think I totally locked in and I think he might have the not over and and like both wide receivers Both teams and wide receiver. Wise have three studs each both. Have nineteen hundred yards combined. It's only a two touchdown difference with having two more. I gotta take the six here. I got Mona Ryan Burrow. I know history is on Alabama side. Won seven straight and five of those by double digits but you might be eligible. LSU's time with this new offense plus six. I'm going with. This is similar to Seattle and San Francisco right a little a bit. The six points team that might be better as on the road. But God figure Alabama is just more L.. She was basically old for the two thousand. Ten's this against Alabama. They beat him in two thousand eleven. That was the only time. Thirty nine in one Bama straight up as a home favourite and. I don't care what Joe Borough borrow did against Texas Texas got almost got rolled by Kansas. They put up a million points. But Auburn's defense is fantastic. Florida's defense is fantastic. Borough went for three twenty one and three twenty seven against those teams almost close to eighty percent brother. bry You don't care about this offense you think it's going to stay under the number sixty fifty five. Yeah well I just think sixty five a little too high for this type of game. Look the assumption here is going to be a shootout right. Maybe probably the two best offenses in college football and the defense is probably aren't the same type of defenses. They've had the last few years but again sixty five to me. Seems a little steep considering if you looked at the series history going back to the eighteen. Hundreds only one says this game gone over sixty five points regardless of how how much better. LSU's offenses and a much better better than they've ever had but in the last years total in this game is only averaged thirty four points per game only once. Didn't make it into the fifties I duNno for this type of low-scoring. SEC rivalry no matter. How good offenses are I feel like? I feel like these. My might be slow coming out of the gates these teams and I. I think Bama's GonNa win this game like It's probably getting yeah. Thirty Twenty Four thirty thirty four twenty four somewhere in there but I think against sixty sixty five to me just seems a little bit high. What is it do? The spread of Mack Jones is named starter Thursday. Night or Friday. Six and sixty five. Zack Odu Three and sixty one. Yeah the yeah I would say probably. It's going down. Yes going down to three it definitely right if not I mean it should be more right. It's probably probably should almost go to pick them at that point. But you're probably right it would still be life forever. Rebound only because there's just only so dominant at home. I know it's GonNa be a great one and but yeah I'm excited for this. One excited for PENN STATE MINNESOTA. I think one of you might bring it up in your best bats but honestly I know they're both undefeated but there's a decent chance that Harry that neither of these teams is in the big ten championship. Yeah they I mean if you're gonNA thank on Clifford being having a great game for Penn State Against Minnesota. I mean it's it's still have to play Ohio state so yeah more than likely. It's not gonNa Happen Mega but again. Remember Penn State only locked Ohio state by one point last year so it can be a little wary of Penn state. All right more on that that a little later. NCWA hoops started today. We're recording this on a Tuesday. I can't believe how just sneaks up on you champions classic. There's two games TMZ. Kansas Duke is going on right now. Michigan State and Kentucky after that. That's also a wanders to. That's fun I'd never pick these games. I Have Duke and I Have Kentucky. I'll go one on one or two guaranteed. I'm looking at it now. What is it? Twenty eight twenty six. I can't it's a replay going on now to close game right now. We're going to pick a champ though last year. Virginia fifteen one cut down the nets. This year WHO's favored Michigan. State date aforementioned plus five fifty Kentucky for seven fifty. They're playing Duke and Kansas Ten to one. They're playing Memphis. UNC Twelve to one Louisville. Fourteen Florida Seventeen Villanova Twenty Virginia defending Champs twenty-five won Gonzaga. Thirty two one. I'll stop there parlay parlay kid. WHO's winning at this year? Well so I I had at this time last year. I gave you Virginia. I thought they were going to be on that comebacks which they did so hit them. I'm at fifteen to one. So I'm sticking to kind of that number again. I'm GonNa Take Louisville at fourteen to one They have a very underrated coach. Chris Mack it seems like Xavier Their Ohio produces Coach after coach. If you WANNA look for a good coach kind of look at that school And that that program program rebuilt pretty quick right. I mean after Patino disaster there towards the end. I don't think anybody could predicted them to make even make the tournament last year They've got a seven seed pretty much everybody on that team is back including the ACC leading returning score a Jordan. Worrell the WHO led the team in scoring and actually like I said he's the leading. ACC returning score six out of the top. Seven scores are returning. Plus they have really good transfer coming. What the last ask them? Akimbo Lamar Kimball from Saint Joe's where he averaged fifteen point six points a game. That's a pretty good transfer to come in From a pretty solid program like saint. Joe's does that alone would probably before formidable enough but they also have a top ranked recruiting class. That just came in this year. I think they're GonNa win the ACC this year and then it'd be like a one seed going into that tournament and that fourteen to one right now. I think it's a pretty good grab and as we speak at beating the hurricanes by about thirty points In my sure that game is taking place. But they're beaten up on probably a decent hurricane team by about thirty right now. So yeah. That's very Sara. Go we saw a couple of Louisville Basketball Games and we all agree but like has any schools to main teams fallen off as quickly as Louisville. The bill as the football team stunk right. The basketball team was even worse. And now they're right there right there potentially win the ACC and you haven't been fourteen to one to win it. All brother Brian. I was going to the first day I was going to make a monster. Money Line Parlay would all the favorites and then I'm like you know what it's too early I can't I'M GONNA lose my mind rude and Loyola Chicago over. Uc Davis IT'S GONNA come down to overtime and I'M GONNA lose. I'm just not ready for it but you you're going. SEC for your pick. Yeah I'M GONNA go Florida seventeen to one but I I was looking at the same thing too so I was looking at like ten different college teams and I was like. There's no fucking way I'm getting. There's no way I'm getting these right. I'd probably get you know seven. There'd be three upsets in there or something like that but I know it just another thing to bet so another thing to lose on for me. So yeah I like Florida's seventeen to one the also a certain sites you can also bet on like the final four so they're five into one also to make the final four Did get the seal of approval from from the Great Tate Frazier I like I asked him about it and he liked them as well. So Florida again. They lost Michigan last year. In the second round of the tournament but they didn't they didn't necessarily have a ton of talent but three of those guys are returning including Andrew Number They have the transfer Kerry black sheer from. Virginia Tech is one of the best bigs in the country They have a really great recruiting class this year. which they normally don't have led by Scottie? Lewis who's going to be one of the best freshman in the country and they also have one of the best coaches in college basketball. Mike White some for some reason. I always like watching this guy coach every even on the list. I mean he's only been doing a few years but I always get the sense that they're going to make a run in the in the tournament. Two years ago they were in the elite date And that's with not much talent but now they have a ton of talent. The SEC is is jam packed in there. But I like them at seventeen to one ranger. I think they're a top four or five team all right that was a tate. Frazier endorsed pick right there by brother bribe Jim Cunningham. What happened? Take Frazier uh-huh Mark Titus. They're gone that's it. They stepped away the one thing they knew and they stepped away from it. Have you heard from them no I I thought I saw one of them at your house the other night but a lot of might have been at my party. I don't everyone had costumes. Are I mean these guys. They were in the prime of their lives. And the like I said the only thing they knew it's reminiscent of Barry. Sanders is walking away from the game. Right Marvin Hagler issue in their prime all right. Good luck to them whatever. Whatever they're doing I am going to say I'm GonNa Save Virginia Parlay Kid? I know I know you took an ACC team. I'm saying in Virginia you can get them anywhere from MM fifteen to twenty five to one now maybe getting them fourteen fifteen to one stay away but twenty five is good. I know they lose jerome. Kyle guide the Andrea Hunter. Jack Saul would would come in but Tony Bennett as seen as a system coach. They have additions of Casey Marcel. And Thomas while the Clark and what's what's Mahmadi auty decode. WHO's the guy with the six ten guy who should be the Akita should be good? They finished in the top twenty five and adjusted the defensive efficiency eleven of the last twenty-five Levin last twelve years living to last twenty-five isn't as impressive they have an easy non conference schedule Stony Brook's it's on that schedule brother Bri. I don't think North Carolina will be as tough. Duke is going to have trouble perimeter shooting in the perimeter but I think twenty five one not bad for Virginia. They know what to do. Let's let's talk about what the hell they did to cut down the nets real quick I I I couldn't believe when I look back. I mean I believe that. It's only a few months ago but four games. This is in the tournament perdue down three at the line with five seconds left. They win that What Oregon they were winning with Oregon Oregon was winning with six minutes left? That's not as impressive. The first Game Gardner Webb was beating them by fourteen at half or in the first half at least after bowing coming out to a sixteen year before Texas tech trail by three and ot they trailed by three Texas Tech and probably the worst Auburn with a four four point lead in seventeen seconds left. Couldn't hold on. which was the craziest of all those games? Paul again well boy I you could really just go to one of those games. It was imagine you're on. I don't think I don't think you can pinpoint a game. I mean they're almost every game at some point. You thought it was over right. Even if the first game I think they were down at some point right off. It was incredible right right. It's absolutely incredible. So It's going to be tough. I do like I do like what you're saying about Bennett. Being a assistant coach I think you can plug guys in and you can get guys to play way. He wants them to play and he knows games are always going to be tight especially in the tournament time. You know so I'm not bad. Yeah I you know I just got twenty five. They may have scoring issues but twenty five to one. It's worth it Harry as I'm going over these odds if you go over like live odds on some of these teams who the last few teams that win the championship like the Saint Louis Blues. We had our guy on. He wouldn't hedges ticket. What's the name Scott Right And like what did he have two hundred to one fifty to one. I can't even need to want two fifty to one. You had your nationals. I didn't let you make pack on the air because of the game was going on while we're taping. I don't know probably kids taking all the credit by the way for Virginia. When I bet Virginia before the tournament started to and I I cast it almost a thousand dollars? I'm pretty. I'm pretty sure I said it on the show though here. Ah But one before the tournament started I also gave them out on the show. Oh so Harry doesn't let any of his good picks on his show. He saves them for these other other no frills things that he does on the side. We were well aware that all right. I don't know what happened Harry. I was trying to complement and just So that brings US star sponsored segment. Captain Morgan I don't I don't get my team. Did you pick on. No you don't get yeah sorry I WANNA GO TO MEMPHIS MEMPHIS to one They higher. Probably the greatest Memphis Tiger ever to be the head coach and Penny Hardaway March of two thousand eighteen and he promised he would get players and recruited a had. Top recruiting class in the country is includes five star prospect Nashville zone seven foot. One James Wiseman precious Chula Wise Men's projected already to be the number one pick in the two thousand twenty. NBA Mbia drafting achieve Wa. Six nine four it was projected to be a lottery. Pick as well So Penny and Memphis this season. We'll have One of the most dominant front courts in the nation they grab. Some depth happened Lamp Landing Louisville Transfer Lance Thomas and I got freshman bogey. LS We'll be. He'll be the point guard originally signed with coach K.. At Duke Memphis also also For an off guard. Dj Jeffries and other freshmen. Who originally committed to Kentucky Penny has plenty of young guys and we'll probably start all freshmen. But the talent on this team is undeniable. And there's no reason not to believe they will not roll opponent in the American conference. The next best team predicted in that conference. Seventy two one Houston and so at twelve to one Memphis Tigers are young. They're going to be really good. Well I'll just tell you this brother. Brian will sure will definitely lose. WHO's on a Memphis? Houston game The one home one away. I don't know who will have for shoora mess that up those two favorites. I like Bougie. LS Harry that's that's one of my my favorite names of a two thousand nineteen twenty twenty. NCWA basketball so that'll be fun. It starts up. It's listen we need. We need to fill our Tuesdays. And in Wednesday's there's Mac action now for a few weeks but now we have college basketball back the pros. I can't really look at now. I got slaughtered on a Portland was playing. Well actually. There are three and three. I had them on a team. They play Golden State. I guarantee the five of us other five of us. We could beaten at Golden State lineup. That they put out. I don't even even know the names. I text it to you. Not last night. They come up and they trounced Portland. So it's nice to have college back. And that brings us to our sponsored segment captain. Captain Morgan's make believe Riverboat Casino each week that the general effect and I set sail tackling pretend propositions related to sports and pop culture events L.. Listen the captain captain. Morgan himself pulled me aside. He's what's going on with Harry with all this bragging as well. He feels good about himself. He's betting this he doesn't have much he has his. It's Psychedelic Soda. that he drinks and he has his picks that he's been winning so he's doing well in this contest. He's like yeah but he really is arrogant. ACID yeah he. He's one of the more arrogance sports personalities on the Internet. Bang the captain's like why don't we do that. Why don't we put odds that? Who was the most arrogant sports personality today? On the Internet and the captain's like all right. We'll make Harry the favorite at three two. One Floyd Mayweather at nine to Antonio Brown eleven to Conor McGregor seven and one in the field deal at five to two brother. Bry start us off when you like. Yeah this is. This is easy for me. I'M GONNA go Harry on this one My I I I. It was gonNA try and take it easy on him. But there's just a couple of things that bother me. Every time I see some of his tweets out there like have you ever seen somebody. When he's replying to followers? He just just read tweets with the comment in reply all the time instead of just you know there's a thing on twitter where you can actually just reply. So why don't for one time you can reply. We could still see it. You don't the three tweet every with a comment. Every time to somebody congratulating you on one of your picks But we get it and and the other thing was this is what drove me crazy. Everybody keeps asking how about this hockey over but which has been great that whatever. Whatever this thing was that they put out there for these overs in these posing these hockey game but people are asking about it and he's saying it's it was his bed his idea he came up with it and then I was thinking last year wasn't is there? This huge thing with these teams that went over like there was a certain couple of teams that if you took them they just in general went over like seventy percent of the time but now Harry's Ariz claiming that it's his it's his bed so that's just one You know that that that was just something you know I mean. Maybe he's changing up the teams. I when I was seeing that that was that was just annoying me the other day. All right there you go Harry. Well that's the favorite. I mean you can't you you can't go wrong taking the favorite in this scenario Pilot kid you care to comment. Who Do you like? So you kidding me. This is way too easy Getting Harriet three to one here is tremendous value. But the thank Captain Morgan for the opportunity to speak on behalf of all lot of listeners. you know. He likes to pick on guys like darnold and Bryce Harper. And even Tony Romo right and then so what happens when he has a chance to me. Tony Romo at your party this weekend. Totally cow right. Oh you had the greatest Mr Romo this type of behavior. This is the classic bully that our is become right. So we're face to face you know he cowers down on you know. He blames players at the losses rather than himself for betting on the jags game this weekend totally has been killing the Jaguars they they lost by thirty points and he's blaming like You know one particular play that that cost them much money this week at a central marry. Turn the game. Let happen but those three golfers you talked about this week on your tweets. Oh look at these three golfers out. Great they're doing. They're all in the top ten but ended the weekend. We never heard about these golfers offers. Anymore what I was in one of them came in eleventh. He wasn't the top ten so wrong on all of them and sound now. Do you notice the arrogance of what he's doing we know he's given out money line. Maybes have you seen this money losing. Maybe this is some of the pick given out. I'd right now. We all love to give out money. Line maybes we hit one out of ten. Were we call ourselves a genius and the rest of you say well I told you it was a maybe that makes no sense to me. What is that? I won't get looked I gave out the uh the dolphins winning twenty four seventeen straight up and they won twenty six eighteen. Pretty Damn clubs. You lost the other four or five of them on the on the maze. But so you see what I'm saying. That's the arrogance of that. Well I got one right. I hit the one I said it was a maybe look the odds. I just said well I'll give out. We'll give out with a hundred longshots today at one of those. That's arrogant Is there again as you can get You gotta take the good with the bad sound. This business right. The Harry's tweets certainly calmed down a little bit. So but the bottom line is I missed field. Harry you'll lovable. Oh how I miss it interesting I miss you know what's funny because seven says that It's a ewing theory thing since he's split ways with Ken and he really hasn't because picking up his medication albeit late sometime tonight but since he split. That's one is picks Skyrocketed but yeah I kinda I kinda miss them to Harry. You're you'RE GONNA You'RE GONNA kick yourself as well might as well but what I'm GONNA do. I mean the answer is obviously It's McGregor that guys but aside from him I don't I feel like I'm gonNA defend myself here. I don't feel arrogant when you were seven and one in the NHL Batting and in your own theory. Those facts some things. Ah same thing as in the golden contest. I'm thirty eight. Twenty three and two more facts. Did I have to eat a slice of humble pie this week after going one five and one hundred ever did and I and I accept that but I'm only dating fact like Brian is the tallest out of the four of us that the fact also if the four of take three point shooting contest I would win. If I had to healthy legs I would be flying and tennyson straight back. I'm not bragging it's all in fact sound like I'm voting awhile. Since I'm very curious to hear Jim who's he's outsider cider to the group we love and we look as family but especially if he marries my wife's friend. What what? What gym do you think? Are you picking Harry or floyd or Antonio Brown or are you going to abort well I was looking off the board and there's just some really annoying arrogant people skip bayless. OJ Simpson tape frazier. Sure but I think you've got to go with Harry. I think I think that's it. The money line maybes is alleged. Locks those giving it to Harry. It's a legend locks. You gotta do partly possibly luckily possibilities ladies are good. I'm sorry Harry Conor McGregor can't hold a candle to you. I looked up arrogance. And it's having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance or abilities okay. The abilities is definitely exaggerated. Because we know you're GONNA come down to Earth. I told do not brag about all this stuff until thanksgiving. It's a long season. Then you go one five and one today. You're still still trying to figure out how you're going to get back in this. You're bragging about your a standing but importance. Self of ones importance conor McGregor his abilities and importance are undeniable Antonio Brown top five receiver of our generation. Floyd Mayweather probably the greatest pound for pound. We've ever seen what about you. Harry what what what importance do you place on. These picks all right. That's it that's another captain Morgan's Oregon's riverboat casinos. How you live like a captain? Captain Morgan remind you to please drink responsibly. Captain's orders. I don't know if anyone enjoyed that. I do think it was therapeutic for for this group so I'm glad I'm glad we did it. We we learned a lot their money. Line maybe all right shark tank Bali Kit last week you want. I should've gone with you. Is the panthers. Bills Colts was at your teaser was up panthers bills call. CSL's rather easy rather An easy pretty easy teaser. Yeah a couple of times I listen to brother. Bry who had Florida plus six and a half Bridie at that that two point conversion screw at the end right. Yeah threw me A. Ah I figured I was GONNA lose on that coming down to the end but I've had a really. I've had a really shitty run the last two weeks. I had such a bad week that Yesterday yesterday I walked into the women's bathroom at work and I didn't even realize until I was like halfway halfway to the no urine on there so oh ooh no. That's really good by me. I got a hello from a from a woman in there. So you just really out of it because I just need I just need to get back on a winning way man here and yeah som talking about bragging walking into women's bathroom all right Harry Harry I went with you because you promised me. We're going to start winning on this show nine and all these other arenas and you had the Jaguars on a teaser. You lost money for us us we. We were barely awake on Sunday morning. Camp and say that Seattle Game Way over on the teaser. Wait over what was so you win the half the teaser you do. You WanNA explain teasers work GonNa win both types of six hours. After Harry lost the first leg of our teaser. He won the second game one. So I'll give you that poly kids start us off your the winter. Maybe I'll jump out. Yeah I was GONNA go back with another teaser and then I you know I've noticed a couple of people they get back to a party for us here so I'm GonNa take the three teams. I would've taken and a very easy teaser. This week and add a couple bowl extra teams do. It's all keep it quick. So we're GONNA take the saints minus six twenty five on this all money. Line stuff against the Falcons. How is Winston coaching? This team the saints win their offer by the Falcons off by two. But saying so they'll they'll they're gonNA THEY'RE GONNA win pretty big in that one. I'm going to stay with the colts called coming off a bad Loss the other day They'll rebound perfect team to rebound against the fence. Coming off a win so They're done with their winning pretty much for the year. So the cultural cover it might as well. I'm not talking about covering their win. Then minus five fifty Ravens minus five hundred at Cincy Ravens could play a bad game here and still beat the sensitive team adult not quarterback in this week Ryan Finley and. I don't think that's really can help that. Team too much. And then sal and add to other other teams to this. What taking the rams that minus one ninety I know you like the rams and sweet McVeigh off a bye week? I have a lot of confidence in. So let's take them at minus one ninety. Let's take the cowboys already. Already mentioned at minus one fifty five ad this all up. It's about my it's about a plus three hundred three hundred twenty bucks. I like it all right. I think I like it too. I'll examine into a little further later but brother. Brian Get us going off the Florida game. Come on walking yeah. It's funny I I apologize before I might have said that I was going to be taking the Penn state game. But I'm sorry I am not taking that one. Even though I like Penn state against Minnesota and no one I'M GONNA go with the bills plus three over the browns I just. I can't believe at this point. Time Freddy is still favourite against a good team. I know they're banking on the browns playing. Well eventually right but at this point you can say that Ravens game was an aberration. Somehow I want on that for the best that happened the browns over the ravens that game. That seems crazy to me to think about at this point but I don't know there's some everything is everything's wrong with with the browns right now. It looks like they're on the brink of disaster. Seems like they can fall apart at any point in time The bills on the other hand. They seem to be playing well. It looks like with with single terry out. Their their offense is uh even even a little bit explosive which for them is really explosive But if you look at the numbers that bill is four no against the spread their last four as an underdog the browns their own four against the spread the last four at home. The one crazy that that I saw two is the browns are one in thirteen against the spread and their last fourteen at home home versus a team with a winning record which is crazy to me. So I think we're one game away from a Beckham Mayfield implosion and I think it's going to happen. This game It just seems to be headed that way and To me is this Brown seem. I mean we've had fun. The last two years with Hugh Jackson and everybody else UH The losses. But I'm enjoying this brown season more than any of those which is crazy. I never thought I thought I missed you but now I don't I mean now now all I want Freddie just to stay on and stay another year which I won't happen because I think to me this is just so fun with his en- game play calling and timeout challenges. Great so I was excited when I saw tiger that they're not gonna find whether it's true or not. They're not gonNA fire him thank you. That's from the football guys. I mean we have the job that he has a job and we have a job to do and that's to make fun of the Browns head coach at that's gone. What are we going to get a capable guy in there? We just stuck making fun. The Harry for hours every week so can't do that. Bills Plus Three. Yeah that looks pretty good too. All Right Harry you're GONNA win Let's see it. Yeah I'm going to take a steelers at home plus three and a half against the Rams rancher twentieth in rushing. I still don't have a hundred yard rusher a game golf at eleven touchdowns and eleven turnovers Definitely not in love with Rams and Sean mcvay. Unlike some people I think the rams are overrated. I think they're not that good. Actually they were extremely fortunate. BEAT CLEVELAND Then lost three in a row Tampa. Seattle Frankie Fifty fifty five Tampa which is amazing and then the last two wins first Atlanta since they still were not able to rush for over one hundred yards and after this road game three out of four night games to play a lot. The rams play meanwhile phil turn their season around their foreign four scored twenty three points in five straight games. They've won four the last five Defensively they're eleven the League In the steelers current three game winning streak they're forcing nine turnovers and had nine sacks pits looking good and the next three game Cleveland and Cleveland and then after a another game they have Arizona and the jets In five the next six games Again no running game for the ramp. I think that's a big problem. I think forcing them to pass in. Pittsburgh will be able to create turnovers against golf. I'll take Pittsburgh St over golf and I'll take the three and a half points steelers. Well I'll tell you right now. I don't like that I like the Rams I'm in poly kids camp here. I'm McVeigh Guy off the bye. Also six no last six games last six road Games against the number Pittsburgh's been lucky to win. They were lucky to beat the call stick on Owen to last week in six days to beat the colts and beat. The dolphins ended up being the dolphins by ten but they they really lost that game there. That's a weird team. I don't trust them. I don't trust them without connor. I know their defense shows up every week but I think the rams will put put up points as long as Cooper Cups in that lineup. I don't I don't really. I feel like that solves half of their running woes. Because he's opened on that six yard slant all the time so Harry. I'm passing on yours parlay kid I like yours. I like them one to man. It's funny you went. You had some not great quarterbacks last week on your money line pilot or a new teaser last week and that came through this week. You have decent quarterbacks against bad ones right. Let's go over this New Orleans who that Shaab right for for Atlanta. I could could be back but I don't know the job. Alright fits magic. And then you've got the Ravens Against Susan Linley Not Ryan Lindley. That's certainly grind fence Finley Yeah I duNno rams fruit off it off and then so yeah it goes on and on cowboys played someone decent but I I like it. I'd rather not string those five together. I know it's a plus three twenty. That's nice pay back but I'm screaming about the bills all week brother Brian. I love it. I don't understand why they're an underdog doc it's six and two against two and six It's not like one in three against three in one and the one in three is home lane three points. I can understand that. We've seen half. The season added these out of these browns and they have a million problems and penalties is one of them. They're undisciplined. They're kind of everything that the bills are. I know the bills had a an easy slate but they beat a lot of teams that the browns have lost too. I really do like. There's not an easy game on the Brown schedule. They don't have to win this game because their backs against against the wall. They're just not that good at bills might not be great either. But they're going to be a playoff team. Ally can plus three brother Brian. I going to walk into the correct bathroom this week. Plus Three bills. That's what I'm going with. Farrah Shark tank all right and now what everyone's been waiting for two million dollar pick. He'll producer Jim. Your two million dollar pack a lot of pressure. I like the bills over the browns and said the rams over the steelers but since I'll definitely be watching this giants jets game game. I'm going to go with the giants and the over. I see forty three and a half there giants minus two and a half. I think that that Adam gazes completely lost the jets and in their design. That's it Let's go with the joints man. I think this is a weird spread. I don't know why I thought the job. I'm not going to touch his. But you know you're putting two million dollars. Donovan probably should giants mind and over forty three and a half two million dollar parlay. What does that Perry but five point two million if it back like wow? Do you have any feel for your giants this week Hash it. You know what I want them to win a game the whole rest of the year so this game and and Pickoff darnold three or four times. That's all. I can turnovers quarterback right right last Winston throw pick. It didn't happen yeah. That's something to look for the interceptions for these guys. Paulie Aleka like spending over one and a half touchdown passes usually goes. I think I've got a four four to five on these things as it all right right. So that's gyms he'll producer gyms two million dollar parlay their giants minus two and a half over forty. Three and a half paulie kid at the CHOCTAW. Ker at the Chalk Talker Sal Probably will not be traveling. Upstate New York this weekend Then I'll finish up my road trips next weekend Ah Hopefully Rochester can get a win here. One of the last two games. I think this is their best chance this weekend. I don't know if it's going to happen but it's been fun. It's been fun Couple of months and And that's about it and everything else is good so I guess bollocking sounds exhausted. This is a lot of driving parleys. It takes a lot out of. It says this time of the year. Sal My voice. I think just from yelling at kids all the time I I just I think by the end of the show here My voice goes a little bit every time. Now I just only so much you can take. Yeah yeah well. Don't don't talk so goddamn much now. I know you're I understand what happened. Everyone yells at Harry and then we got. We left with nothing. Harry we're exhausted. What are you doing this weekend? let's see here going to the PGA Golf The senior tour Friday and Saturday the championship Charles Schwab Championship. It's here in Phoenix. Like someone that a couple of days whether beautiful you can find me at Ao Harry Check out my articles on site. Odd Shark I got a prop article on the Lsu Alabama.

National Championship Recap

"The tigers versus the tiger is for the title battle. Aw GonNA lots downfield touchdown. Now seven piece. The Turks two zero takes its four sleep tonight Lynch and told the ropes right now or we kill shot down failed took Berle said time to fit me for their rank L. S. U. Sits on the throne of college football. What team would be? Maybe in the battle of the Tigers won by the by you variety match along with Tom Luganville and Emmanuel Acho for this. It's Tuesday edition of College football live. Thanks for being with us. LSU defeats Clemson. Forty two to twenty five and a gain that Clemson actually led by ten points in that second quarter and then you saw. LSU finished the game with a thirty five to eight run the rest of the way Emmanuel. What was the biggest key for the LSU tigers earth adjusting? That's what it came down to venables. He started out with phenomenal scheme. He took a linebacker out he inserted. Tanner Moose the usual. Starting safety get linebacker. LSU was thrown off but after the third fourth series. They got back to the run game remember. It's not a coincidence. A fifty two yard touchdown came after Clyde applied. Edwardsville layer runs over a defensive bathroom. He runs over Terrell Nolan turn. He man's them up either. I make a big time chess. Tackle the very you next play Nolan Turner. He should be sitting deep as you see right there. Hey tyrrell's on an island one on one Nolan Turner get in the pedal. Help your boy out. He's still thinking about the last play and Bang Bang. LSU strikes and they draw blood perfect. Pass perfect catch easy touchdown so what happened. LSU adjusted got back to the run game and got back in the end zone all Emmanuel. I think the other thing too to me is just been staggering all year long. It'd occurred in this game as well is how many explosive plays of over thirty yards over. Twenty five yards that Lsu was able to attain we're not talking about high percentage throws here we're talking about low percentage stroz against guys it for the most part are pretty well covered and then you see the short catches get turned into long gains. That's one thing that Clemson had not struggled with they hadn't given up a bunch of explosive plays a bunch of plays over the top and that to me is what stood out as being the difference every time you needed a momentum swing it came as a result of an explosive jealous. Well he's just so he looks here. Point Joe Borough what makes them so so special how accurate he is sure. You can only make these types of big plays explosive plays not high percentage which plays mind you if you were pinpoint accurate as a defender. You're daring a quarterback overthrows a fifty fifty ball. Because I think you're going to go get it. Who Joe Borough does? It is in the right place at the right time to the right guy. It's just so hard to defend unless you you start out that game offensively couple of three and outs three consecutive punts and then finally got your right lose just that big play eventually they gotta going and the dam was broken. Broken that lasts drive at the end of the half as well you had he I against Clemson on third and nine hundred borough runs for twenty nine on third down in ten and that really didn't determine the game. It's certainly went a long way in the outcome. You know how this business works guys. Once the confetti falls it's time for context and LSU LSU is already being discussed as having one of the greatest seasons of all time look at the AP numbers they won seven games against a top ten opponents. That's the most in a season they also became the first team in history to beat each of the preseason. AP Top four teams in a single season so lubes will start reviewed. We just witnessed the greatest season of all time. You know not having a lot of time to sit back and reflect before I answer. This question might initial thought is yes. And here's why I think that when you're a part of a championship kinship level team. There's a lot of different ingredients. Go in to winning a national championship or World Championship. You gotTa have great players. Okay you gotTa Play error-free yes you do have to have luck. Luck is part of the game of football and how the ball bounces. You have to have some of that but to do it in the fashion that Lsu is done it in the sense that they never never had an off night. Nobody has a game every single weekend and these guys did I mean he just kept waiting at some point or another is Joe. We're going to have a three pick performance. No he didn't and I think that with that in mind everything needed to happen and it happened in all happened at once. The Stars Online. Whether it's chemistry in the Locker Room Coaching decisions coaching hires the right players at the right spots and then the execution to be flawless as it is Ben and for as many sustained weeks I think that puts them in a category. That is unique to them and right now in recent memory only them agreed. LSU In this team we you just witnessed. They are the best team of this generation. Now there is some selection bias. The playoffs exists. Now you have a better chance to beat better ranked teams. That's something they they can only occur now think about the NBA. It's easier to score more points now. That a three point shot exists so there is some selection bias. However when you think about what? LSU Did beating the preseason top four teams and you beat three of them in back to back to back weeks that's something that's unheralded that something. That's unprecedented so you have after give respect and you have to give praise where it is do. I think they're the best team in our generation. Yes there is selection bias. But that doesn't take anything away from what Lsu accomplish and. I'm not sure if and when we see it again what I'll tell you another thing too guys stay healthy. I mean you had an injury Clyde Edwards Allaire. He was dinged up late but to have that too deep roster essentially go through the entire season in remain intact. That's that's huge. I don't know if you can put that into context of how important that really is arguably the best team of all time In terms of seasons in arguably one of the great stories of all time. We'll get to Joe Borough just a minute but Cole cubelic our colleague geared. ESPN this tweet sent out late last night about what Lsu accomplished looking at this LSU's opponents opponents that they beat won the ACC the big twelve. Let's go through this that's Clemson that's Oklahoma the SEC Georgia the Orange Bowl. That's Florida the Fiesta. Clemson again the sugar bowl. That's Georgia the Citrus Alabama. You go down through the list and he says seven were ranked in the top ten when they played so the numbers certainly do not lie there. There's another number that Lsu put put up seven hundred twenty six points. That's the most in a season in the poll era and many of those points attributed to the right arm and the two legs of Joe Borough quarterback for Lsu that became the first heisman trophy winning quarterback to win the National Championship. While very he's essentially it's like human cheat code. Money beat the game of college football responsible for six touchdowns more than five hundred. Total yards finishes the season with an F. B. S.. Record sixty touchdown passes. SEC record fifty. Six hundred passing yards wins. The heisman wins the national title. We talked about one of the greatest team seasons of all time Emmanuel did we witness the greatest individual season in the history of college football. Absolutely and now. I'm not gonNA say that Joe Boroughs is the greatest college football player player of all time. Let's understand there's a difference but we did just witnessed the greatest season by college football quarterback of all time and again men lie women lie numbers. Don't Joe Borough Sixty touchdown passes that's tops sixty five touchdowns responsible for that's tops. Second all time in completion percentage manage that is tops. That's top two so when you're talking about the greatest that something that that can't be debated based on opinion because the numbers they they say. Joe Bureau was the greatest not going to say that he was the best but he was for sure bar. None the greatest if you base this off of just sheer ear. Production production only. I don't care if you're if you're talking about Lsu the players around him he is undoubtedly the greatest college quarterback back from a production standpoint that we have seen and I WANNA go back to the accuracy pointing in Emmanuel. You and I were talking about this earlier. Is this isn't a dink and dunk offense offense. They're not throwing bubble screen. Seventy percent of the throws are within five yards. Of the line of scrimmage. They are throwing the ball downfield. They are taking shots. They are creating creating opportunities there. Generally low percentage throws I think that's what magnifies his completion percentage even more so is. This isn't an air raid Dinkins. Don't just dump it off. Type of offense. He has to work progressions. He's got to get from point. A. To Point B. Two point see and he's gotta make difficult throws when doing it. I think that's what separates him from any other performance in college. Football history at the quarterback spot sixty passing touchdowns for Joe Borough this season in the previous four four seasons combined. LSU had fifty nine passing touchdowns a job. Roy was terrific. This season the coach who took a chance on him and overrun sat down with us. This morning how we feel about this when you start to put a little perspective on what your team did. The top ten wins the record set the trophies won the teeny beating the championship. Game when you try to put in perspective how do you you know I think as as time goes on this team will be known as one regret. Esteems ever play Cosimo Gris players because the bowl Joe Borough of Those things were too far fetched. I think about even Our Focus was beaten comes on a very good football team. Now we'll have time to reflect on that but I think those are take take a look at this and tell me what you think Louisiana State University National Championship Euro. So everybody in Well you know when you come to shoot expectation said they always hired. We understand the expectation of the wind biden with the same expectation of myself and how south and we reached it. I'm so proud but you know what it would be done with great players when we have some great players when football team like Davos. Sweeney did when he won his his first title with Clemson goes from a one time interim coach to a national championship coach. Luke how would you describe the impact Eto is ron has headed. Lsu obviously significant when you consider all of the doubters and the questions surrounding the higher. Initially I think the one thing that we've got to acknowledge and we've got appraise doors Ron for is being able to look back on the old Biz experience. An really really dissect what he didn't do right. Whether that was hiring hiring practices whether that was being involved in an area where he didn't need to be involved in maybe trying to coach everything. That probably is more impactful than anything thing else about people. It's about. Players coaches acknowledged. But it's really about people when you're talking about the right pieces of the puzzle needing to be in place to create the culture and the environment that you have to have to be able to pursue a championship and ultimately win one coach. Oh to me legendary. That's the one word I would use to describe them when you're getting recruited as a high school kid a cultural come in sit down with you. Your parents sit in your living room. Promise graduate get a degree in win championships. Ian Chips Win National Championships. And maybe even when individual awards usually that coaches lying. I'll be honest because a lot of those things you don't do coach. Oh he achieved achieved and accomplished each and every one of those things trophies have been handed to coach. Oh statues will likely be built of coach. Oh and some players potentially on this is team what we saw what we witnessed. It was legendary. It's something that's iconic and will go down in history not just in Baton Rouge but in college football aw back in two thousand seven. Lsu Won its last national championship. I those you're on was finishing up. His final season at old miss went three nine there in Oxford thirteen years later. We'll be living areas fifteen at national champ at number one in the final. AP Poll Released Today Oregon and the top five for the first time since two thousand fourteen Alabama's sitting at eight eight the crimson tide. Worst finish since two thousand ten. It's called first world problems. clemson finishes in the top five for the fifth straight season. But it wasn't the finish. They hope for what went wrong for Clemson what to make of the performance of Trevor Lawrence now playing on ESPN Saturday. It's a heavyweight college basketball. Matchup breath followed by Lakers rackets and primetime and that Tim it's to return of Conor McGregor to the UFC tiger versus the tiger is the feel touchdown Berwick Scores Office five downtown for that Rick's off. LSU And quarterback Joe Borough thoroughly dominating Clemson in the second half of that National Championship game. Clemson team that saw. It's twenty twenty nine game win streak come to an end along with its quest for its third national championship in a four year Span Emmanuel. What went wrong for Clemson last night? It's very simple trevor. Lawrence chose a bad game to have a bad game. And this is what it comes down to. I mean he got outperformed. He wasn't the best quarterback on the field. Clemson needed Trevor Lawrence to outplay outduel. Joe Borough and he just didn't. Travelers is a phenomenal quarterback. Trevor Lawrence will be a phenomenal quarterback and he has been since he the ball but thirteen overthrows. Thirteen overthrows the biggest game. Now to this point of your life. It's just inexcusable. In a game at Pat Stage Again Trevor Lawrence Straight baller. We know that but last night just was not his. You know we talked about teams not having their a game every single week and this was one of those nights where Clemson didn't play their best football game they made more errors than Lsu. Did and again going back to those explosive. Plays on defense. You're you're not going to survive that versus Lsu with their explosive firepower. I think the one thing that we do have to acknowledge us from some perspective here is i. This doesn't mean that all of a sudden Clemson next ball's GONNA lose their opener at one twenty nine games in a row and thirty games in a row. The Sky is not falling clemson. The Sun rose this morning. But it's on on the same side of that. This is a very special team. There's no guarantee that they're going to win their next fifteen in a row. This is a reflection of what happened on Monday night and they weren't the better team and that's pretty much is simple. You can put Lou. Let me follow up on that because Lsu was the better team not just last night in general all season us a better football team from top to bottom them. Clemson is so what that means. Clemson was going to have to play perfect. They were going to have to play out out of their mind or at least hope that. LSU play bad since LSU didn't play bad clemson where is to the occasion and they just didn't so it's not as if these were two evenly matched teams and Lsu outperformed him no Lsu was a better team Clemson had to play their best. And they didn't. That's that's really the simplest way to look at it all we. We saw Clemson team get away with it see game and beat Ohio state and they had a couple of things go their way. Those things did not go their way last night and they played roughly around there seagate especially in that second half they were gonNA need an a plus game to beat. LSU Do want to mention. Trevor Lawrence had thrown a touchdown pass twenty four consecutive games. That was the longest active streak. What to ask you this? Because I just mentioned in Ohio state and Clemson couldn't help but watch that game last night in the margin at the end and wonder what that game would have looked like had Ohio state. It's somehow some way taking care of Clemson. How would that? How would that game have looking? Think Luke's last night probably fairly similar Laura still think. LSU would've pulled away whether it would have been in the second quarter of the fourth quarter Maybe you could look at Ohio. State is maybe being able to hold up up up front a little bit better defensively the corners at Ohio state the big physical corners might have been a better match up for the the targets that LSU presented but that is a question loaded with with what is right there if if is the biggest word in sports right. I mean that's if this happened if that happened reality is it. Didn't hindsight is twenty twenty and so it's easy now to say that man those Clemson corners they didn't have have a chance against those LSU receiver. I thought the Clemson corners going into the game would play better than they did now. What we do know? Ohio state has the best cornerback in College Football and Jeff Okuda WTA on the other side. Ohio state also has another beast. Damon are net. So I do think unequivocally and I wholeheartedly believe Ohio State Coroner's could have held up better than Clemson's cornerback. Did Not to say they wouldn't have been vulnerable in other areas or but on the outside at Corner Verse Receiver. Ohio state would have held up better just because because they have better players at that Dole's Pacific positions. Something tells me those two teams might be able to settle it on the field coming coming up next year. Oh I was going anywhere where they're gonNA see kind of these same teams again up for the top prize again next year. According to Caesar's Clemson two to one odds to win the national title the national title wasn't the only thing the sec one last night take a look at the final progressive bowl challenge. Cup standings the League one eight of its ten bowl games to claim. The Bowl Challenge Allen's Cup clemson's lost knocked the. ACC down to ninth with a four and seven mark this bowl season up next year. Lsu Win wasn't the only news of the night right. Washington state tabs a replacement for Mike Leach and the star running back decides to return to the college game with our Super Tuesday doubleheader on ESPN ESPN APP features. Two of the top six teams in the nation number three Duke and high flying cash Stanley. Take on Clemson at Little John Calcium seventy the number six Kansas squares wears off against Oklahoma in Norman. Pirate left home and so the cougars Pucca coach from Paradise. Nick Rovic Leaves Hawaii after four years and three Foale wins to become the head coach at Washington State. Lose you like the move. Do you like the move. I like how he resurrected the program. Eight and five and two thousand eighteen ten and five this past asked Season and you think the ball was in the air a lot under Mike leads. Ball's GonNa be in the awful lot under nick. Role of it with some of his background was running shoe principles as well. They won the West Division of the Mountain West. Last this season why ranked in the top five conference in passing offense and all four seasons. Meanwhile it Oklahoma state the Hubbard. I mean covered will will not be bear in still want running back Cuba Hubbard announced on twitter. Monday night he will return for his senior. Season led the nation in rushing with more than two thousand thousand yards. After saying during the season he would return to Houston next year. The king showing off more of his mobility by entering the transfer portal the quarterback played four games for Dana holders in this season before announcing he would redshirt and preserve a season of eligibility that final season of eligibility is now reserved for another another team so manual. Joe Go to you on this. It was certainly a controversial decision when he announced he would sit out the rest of the year. Where do you think he'll play next year? I think there are two options right. You can look at a place like the University of Miami which desperately needs a quarterback great defense desperate for quarterback or sleeper. Deeper sneaky team he could go to the. Sec Ole Miss Jeff Levy the new offense coordinator. He is a brother-in-law Kendall. Brian's remember the Eric King enjoyed all of success under Kendall. Brian's Brian's at the University of Houston we accounted for fifty total touchdowns and would have been a heisman finalist. Had he not gotten hurt along with the likes of Tyler Murray so keep your eye out for. Oh Mrs well. Yeah there's a lot of destinations I can tell you one that it's not going to be and that's Oklahoma. 'cause there's no way Lincoln Riley can afford to keep doing that. The Kid quarterback norman come on come on high school kids. I'm going to go get another transfer. There's no no doubt the job early. Success will do nothing from dissuading other quarterbacks from doing this report thirty eastern E._S._p._N. two Wednesday.

Route is is a route that maybe a lot of people are familiar with it. They don't really understand the grind of going to junior college You know it's not probably not anything like Lsu where you you don't have the the athletic money. You don't have the offers scholarships you don't have the the nice locker rooms and all that you've really got grind to become a player that that Lsu once you I'm sure those few years Northwest Mississippi really molded. You into the guy you are today and got she recognized. Lsu But is there anything that you take away from your community college days that when you come into? Lsu You feel like that made you into a better player coming into a big program as Lsu is like coming like from high school to Do Co. had zero office. I play with a chip on my shoulder.
