That's next time on that USA. All songs considered on Bob boiling. I'm here with Robin Hilton. Hello, robin. You sound a little different. Just just speaking in my upper register today. Bob must be that cold, so Orissa LaRussa, welcome. Thank you. So happy to be here. I'm so happy to be here into nappy Robin Hilton today. He's fixing his cold. That's fair for those that don't Omarosa. Well, we'll get into this later but works on our tiny desk. Contest do and she's been with a couple of years and does a lot of writing on our site, and you may have heard on the show before and I work on turning the tables, which is a series that NPR music does about thinking about the popular music canon, especially the place of women in the popular music canon. I love that project a lot and one of the women who've been so prevalent in the past few years as Phoebe bridge IRS who's been connected with these incredible projects. Well, her own record, which is beautiful. Yeah. And then Boy Genius. Which is a project of Lucy tickets and and a project of Julian Baker, I'm now the surprise record came out like not even a week ago now on album between her and kind of Oberstar. She must be a woman who is extremely good at keeping secrets because keeping the Boy Genius record a secret. And then keeping this collaboration with Connor Oberstar secret. I wouldn't be able to do it. If you spend time with this wreckage of not as much as I would like to, but I listened to couple of times, and it's beautiful really really is a complement each other so perfectly I wanna play a song called Dylan Thomas and kickoff our show from an album that came out out of nowhere. And name of their project is called the better oblivion community center. And here's a Dylan Thomas. Meal. Stead for the anthem Vander. Sally. Made it. Steps. Seasons. Daily. Tom seizure? Bins. Scares. Jane? Game dimension. It's a. Still. Sadden? Faking. Just a kid and she. I'm not gonna lie play this over and over over the weekend. Voices are so perfect together. Oftentimes, you can feel and in in duos, you sometimes feel one artist pulling them either slowing them down costs. They can't keep up. Their styles are not the same. Visit tension that doesn't always work this works. I mean, just flat out works Phoebe bridgeton over feel too. Like, I'm sure Phoebe Phoebe at the exact age where I could imagine that she probably grew up listening to bright eyes records. She did play bright is. I mean, she learned some bright I songs as a Qatari player when she was younger. So clearly she's learning from Connor over in the songwriting. But it kind of feels like she's having a pretty direct influence on him on the record to which I love. I will give and take perfectly where there's one line in the song about the the ghost is just a kid in a sheet which Phoebe bridges cover art for her album. Asus. Kid in a white sheet. Sheet drawn over child. A lot of great word play that song. It's called Dylan Thomas better oblivion community center project and came out last Thursday. And I'm in love, what do you have? So I know that you bobber fan of the band bellows deed. I am a fan of the band fellows. And they have a new record coming out in February on top shelf records. The record is called the rose Gardner. All the songs written by the bellows front person Oliver cowb-, but there's contributions from folks from florist from Gabrielle Smith from Gabby world from Felix while where who does a bunch of different bands, including told slant. So I thought I would play you the title track the rose Gardner. Code. Against them. Spain. She's. There's a difference. Cool. So that's the rose Gardner title track from the record. And the the lyrics of the song our story of garden trying to keep a bed of roses alive in the dead of winter, which is certainly relatable in this current temperature. But Oliver said that the song climate, right? Oh, I in fact, that it's the dead of winter right now seeing climate that word choice climate as in the world we live in. So it's true. What you're getting to the larger point? Because Oliver said he was thinking a lot about making art right now when he was writing this record. And he says that this idea of Gardner keeping bed of roses alive in the dead of winter is a recurring metaphor on the album about the futility of art making about trying to care for something that's doomed to fail sometimes slogging along in the brutal music industry can feel that way. But the rose Gardner is ultimately a hopeful song, despite the cruelty and indifference of real life. The Gardner keeps moving forward and tens the roses. Even though he knows it's probably a ridiculous and futile task is that uplifting. Thoughtful. I mean, I can really feel frustrating to make art in times where you don't feel like you're making a change or making a dent or doing anything. It's but I love the image of the rose Cordner continuing onto that. I did good me too. Oliver Cal as a keyboard in Gaby's world, which is Gabrielle Smith is on this record. And and they worked together for so long and eskimo was project. Right. He's world. Oh is a bunch of name changes eskimo Gavin's world pretty much all the same project. Same group of people. I actually ran into Oliver and Gabby on the street in New York, eight million people in New York. How does me I was waiting for pizza, and they were on the way to a sandy Alex g show do you know, Alex? So I was also after I got my pizza on the way to that show because the opener for that show was duster. Are you a fan of duster don't know duster? Oh my gosh. Okay. So. Get to know something new so they put out a couple records in the late nineties early two thousands. I think like maybe two albums and an EP rock band kind of make this big slow spacious I described it as feeling like you're stoned on the moon when you listen to this band. Yeah. So they put out a couple records. I think they were they did getting pizza. So they put out a couple records. And then I think they were pretty well received. And then they stopped making music, and in the interim a lot of people like me, and I think maybe other people my age really got into what they did with low fi sound and kind of this like slow fuzzy feelings e kind of music that they make and now they're coming back. They played that show in New York opening for Alex g they played a couple of other shows in New York now, they're playing on the west coast and numeral group announced that they are releasing dusters entire catalogue and a bunch of unreleased tracks and demos. I'm very excited about it. And when they made that announcement they released a song called what you're doing to me. And I would love to listen to that. Now. I like that sound so much as trying to sort it out. 'cause it's I this song is not new right there together again. But this isn't one of those songs this is a previously unreleased track from back in the old days, though. I do think they're going to have new music because when I saw them at that reunion show in New York, they were playing some new songs, there was a sense of when I was listening to this is the key can me that felt very much like using the record this what in roughly the turn of the century, this this this century exactly they recorded back on the turn of the century and other together again, some very archival material. But it's on it sounded as if they were using technology that was even ten or fifteen years previous to that. I might be wrong. But that's the sense. I get so it makes me wonder like what they will sound like today. You know, there's one thing to get back together with friends. It's another thing to have the adventure. Explore the new technologies of the day because they didn't stop playing stop playing together as project, but I'm sure they're all in different worlds, and different kinds of means technology. Totally. And I'm curious kind of what their approach to recording would be like now because it very much like when I was at the shows in New York it felt like everyone in the crowd had this idea of duster, this amazing influential band and the guys in the band were like, oh, these are my friends, and we used to be a rock band together. And now we're doing this thing again. And so I don't know if they would approach recording new music as like, you know, this adventure into like new technology in like a fancy shiny thing. So I guess we'll see, but I'm content to have these old records for the meantime. Well, when the new one comes up bring it to the show, we'll all listen together. Best we'll take a quick break and come right back in. I got I got a surprise for you.

I'm Bob boiling with also considered. I'm here with Marissa's larusso spring. Any bells? Slightly familiar. Where do I know this? Well, I mean, you spent a good chunk of your time looking at the seven thousand or whatever videos, we get a tiny desk contest and. This is this is someone you won't remember. I mean, it's harder to remember all the names. Don't matter. How good they are. Right. This is and this was a good one. This is Jackie Mendoza does. Well, remember her even more if that makes any sense? She here she's playing a little tiny guitar doing all this stuff by herself. She entered the contest and the other day, I got submission from from publicist of this song, which is called day lejos. But a completely new and redone version. And so the same song from the tiny contest entry video. Wow. That's so excited. Really cool. Like, I know this. But I don't know this and you'll hear why when I play this from Jackie Mendoza. Explode. That was mighty cool. Right. That was so cool. And it was so different than her the way that her entry video sounded what what an interesting producer shoe, she talks about this in a note. I got she said not always a song about a long distance relationship and begins and talks about her girlfriend and missing her and beautiful lines. Like your body is the best vacation and just talking about long distance relationship. But she goes on to tell me about how she went through this interesting writing process, she said, I wrote it as a ukulele since pup tune, and what's started working with a fellow named rusty Santos. It took on a different form. And we agreed that it could be a ballot with minimum with minimal beat. And then they transform that sound of the ukulele strip down the instrumentation. So that the message was going to be the center piece of the song. She says I love layering and sound scaping. This song is a big step out of that comfort zone. But I'm really excited. She says about its final form, and she should be. Wow, that's beautiful. Does she have a record coming out or all I can say and all I know is kind of stay tuned in the next few weeks. Okay. Well, I will stay too. So I'm kind of like, I don't think we'd be staying tuned to for them to say, no sorry. Nothing's coming. She's myth music, actually. Oh, Jackie Mendoza lejos. Beautiful. What do you got? So do you know, Heather woods Broderick? Okay. Well, if you don't know she's a multi Bente songwriter. She collaborates with a ton of different artists, most notably. Sharon, Benneton Heather records with her and I think performs on tour with her too. So she has a new record coming out in April called invitation. And she wrote a bunch of the record in coastal Oregon. She grew up there, and then moved away and came back when she was working on this record and was just inspired by the landscape there, and the people there and kind of the pace of life, and she was looking through her mother's journal entries and found this quote from Thomas more, and that's where the name of the record comes from. So the quote is to keep the unfolding self alive. You have to open yourself to change every step of the way. Of course, there are times when it is appropriate to step back settled down and maybe not move for a while. But to be. A person means to be faced every minute with the decision to live or die to accept the invitations for yet more vitality or to decline them out of fear or lethargy. So the song I would like to play for you is called aware. I lay. Stint into the sun. That's. Trees. See? Seed. I won't get lost in that all of can suggest just four minutes that abrupt ending though took me out of this place that I want to leave. So I don't know there is a transition on a record that's gonna come out or maybe the contrast of being setting incredible mood, and then snapping you out of it as like waking dream or a little bit feel like waking out of a dream it all works. It all works. But it's on record. That's coming up, April called invitation. So you'll have to wait and find out what it transitions to wait. Okay. With that where I lay as the name of the song, I'm gonna take somewhere completely different. We're going to a desert. Oh, okay. From the from the Oregon coast to the desert if we're going to go to the music of 'em do mock tar do mock tars tour egg tar player. So this is the those credible. Like, I say drone as in like, just it's modal music. So it's not so much about the melody as it is about this place in music that just takes you on a like a drone journey, and and do mock tars from a little village in central Niger and the Twix cover this big vast area in the Sahara that goes from Libya, southern ALgeria, Niger Mali, kina Foucault. He grew up in a family like so many of these touring musicians to secular music was annot. No. Yeah. But but he made his own out of wood and strings, and and then somehow I I don't know the whole journey, but I'm gonna dig further into this. And maybe tell a story at another date, but this record that's coming out, which is called Ilana, which translate as translates as creator was made in Detroit with this engineer. His name is Chris cults. He an MD car bonded over z tops, tress Hombre. It's all I can say here comes. Here's the journey. I'm gonna play the lead off track to the new book record. And the song is called a commodity hunting rock out is what Robin would say if he were here. Thanks Murtha music. It's all songs considered. Support for this podcast and the following message.

House of Cards | Season 6 Episode 5: Chapter 70
House of cards Eason's accepts of five is over. But we're just getting started on the house of cards or recap here on post show recaps. And now here the guys who are so dehydrating. I am robs here with Zach Brooks. Our you. I was doing really well. And then I was reading some feedback on this podcast. Yeah. Apparently were as dumb as this lamp. Oh, no. We're stupid is this window and Seth is smarter than us. Chapter seventy we reached the big seven zero. Yeah. Retirement age. Yes. We started way back when with chapter thirteen even a season one retrospective before chapter thirteen here. We are chapter seventy and we're still talking about Rachel. Wow. This was a dense episode of house of card there is a whole lot here. Yeah. We were all over the place. We had some time in Saudi Arabia. We really were. We were in back rooms playing poker going on. Yeah. I try to put a number next to the scenes in my notes. I have a thirty scenes here in this episode. Yeah. I was reading my notes before we came on. And I thought I was near the end. And then I had like a page and a half of notes did yes. To six and a half pages of notes here for this episode. A lot going on here. I will also say that, you know, this was a classic Underwood meandering plan. I'm really not sure why any of it worked. Yeah. It it really a couple of things in this didn't make sense. But yeah, this is straight out of the Frank Underwood playbook though to everybody think one thing and everybody takes the bait. And here we are. So let me just get this straight. So Claire Underwood's plan is that she was going to lock herself in the east wing of the White House for twenty three twenty four some odd days with the only clues that the rest of the world has is her crying with miscarriage running down her face such that people like Bill shepherd go on TV saying that the president is unfit for office. So that her cabinet stages a coup in that they go to invoke the twenty fifth amendment. And then. Claire fires her cabinet and then comes out victorious and blames Mark sharer? And for the death of Tom Yates and tells the FBI that he has been colluding with Russia, which I guess then causes the FBI to now arrest Markelle Scher. Yeah. Mean that is what we saw. I don't know if that has been the plan this whole time or maybe she needed twenty three days to think up the plan. But it doesn't make a ton of sense. I don't know why she needed to be locked away in order to fire the whole cabinet. I mean, I guess if you're like she needed a reason to fire them. And so them staging a coup is a reason enough, although me, it seems like public opinion of Clare probably shifted quite a bit. I don't know if it can be repaired just by having this new off Email cabinet that she's created. I mean, I feel like that we have like a party good context here in twenty eight teen of like the average news cycle. Could you imagine? If we had a scenario where like. Trump was locked in the residents for three weeks. Nobody seen him, and it was the picture of him cry. I know that the gender difference with that she was trying to like make people worried that she had gone hysterical. But I'm just not sure necessarily where was the pivot. And then the report we got was that the president fired her entire cabinet and replace them. Like, do you need any confirmation for anything? We can you have a red wedding of your cabinet, and then just completely replace them entirely with women like I know for the viewer. It was a real. Yes, Queen moment. But I don't know. How is this playing in America? Yeah. It that doesn't make a lot of sense to me because you would think in twenty three days, especially in the house of cards world when so much stuff does happen. That something, you know, there would have been a hurricane or some national tragedy or somewhere leader who visited something that Claire Underwood would need to be present in doing her job three days. Now, we did have in real life. We did have that period of time when nobody had seen Malania Trump for two weeks or so the first lady that's not the president. That's the first lady. And it was like isn't it weird that we haven't seen her? But it's this is I is claire's pitch gonna say I was so upset because I found out that my vice president was colluding with the Russians in it seems like that we have like the thinnest bit of evidence of other than the press secretaries' saying, hey, she heard Mark usher was on his way to go. And visit Tom Yates the night like in this world where? You know in in our universe. There's oh colluding with Russia. That's that's bad Petrov with that party with everybody a couple episodes ago. I mean, we're going around walking around hanging out colluding with the Russians to do what I don't underst- really understand what the charges against Marcus, sure. Unless it he was colluding with the Russians to get the deals in in Syria in place for the shepherd foundation. And that's when Claire stepped in. And she changed the agreement or maybe she's going to even say that the agreement that she came to with the Russians was because Mark shirt had had this secret meeting with them, and he pulled the spring the strings and she had to do that in. But why isn't Mark usher who seems like a very careful guy going to say, no. Claire Underwood killed Tom Yates. And I guess he did it at my house. I don't you don't wanna say I was sort of aided and abetted a murder, but I think that when you're going to like, okay, let me give you a plea deal, and I will plead guilty to sort of helping with the cover up, but Claire Underwood definitely killed Tom Yates again. But when they're saying that you killed Tom Yates. I mean, I guess the alternative is probably better to say, no, I didn't kill him. But I did help move the body. What I'll tell you everything I know about the president. If you wanna take her down and this. I mean, the the smoking gun is the ice called body that Marcus your has. I don't know why why is Mark usher gonna take the fall for Claire Underwood on this. It's almost like that the show is trying to present that oh, Mark. Sure, she's got him dead to rights in like get him. Lock lock him up officer. And then he's like homina homina homina of I have no good explanation for anything and nothing is going to stick the Claire. Yeah. And you would think that the shepherds are going to be behind Mark Russia and get him the best lawyers or help them out in some way. It doesn't seem like you should just take the fall for this. But it also feels like with three episodes left on the show. They might just yada yada, yada, yada. Yeah. I just like, I don't I don't really understand. I mean in for this to be Claire Underwood's plan. Why did she have to go through the I need to lock myself in the residency for twenty three days. Why couldn't she just fire? Her like, I don't know why she had to go through with this whole business to sort of like to this to sort of like expose. Oh, my cabinet is filled with snakes, and they would be willing to try to undermine me. Just because they thought that I had lost my mind. So they must all be fired. Yeah. I mean. It doesn't really make a ton of sense. It's gonna turn all of the public opinion about Claire back. And it just seems like she could have come right out and said, here's this evidence. I've heard that he was cleaning with the Russians and then go from there and say, we we need to clean house like you don't need to twenty three days for that. Like, we had no sort of evidence that her cabinet was filled with vipers or yes, they met. But I mean that seemed like a rational response she was trying to trick. Everybody to think that she had gone insane cabinet got together. And it seemed like very much within like the idea that that amendment was added to the constitution of if the president is incapacitated or is lost his or her facilities. Then the cabinet could get together and say, okay, we need we need act. And when Claire Underwood is trying to make everybody feel like that she's fallen into this incredible depression that seemed like a rational thing to do. And then they had to all get fired for this offense. And the I germ the country is behind her on this move. Yeah. I think the rational thing to do is is not support the person who didn't do their job for twenty three days in disappeared. Even if you know, whatever it was that was that she's going to say is the reason why she disappeared. Whether it was that she found out this news about Mark rusher or she was so torn up about Kathy Durant being dead or the stress of everything was getting to her. I don't I don't know exactly what she's going to say if we'll even hear it or absence one is going to be a brand new day, and the idea that she would like fire every single person on the cabinet to replace with with with an all women cabinet or why oh I need to see a net shepherds face when she like why did she need to see a net shepherds face when she revealed all women cabinet because the net shepherd would her head's going to explode or she's gonna know. That Claire just check made in her with this move in. I don't even know if it's a check made because okay. Yes. Oh, Clair's off female cabinet. And I guess it makes the timing of releasing this abortion news about Claire back out. I guess I guess that does kind of take away some of the win that would be an Shepard sales. But. I mean, I don't think one has to do with the other. Really? Yeah. I just don't know exactly what. Unless the show is going to paint this as well can't believe that Claire did this a per pupil rating is at ninety two percent because she did this. And she's the champion for for women. But I don't really like that who was really opposing. This was not really an issue like Frank Underwood did not ever come across his his stance was being anti woman. Feels like that. That is more of an issue that comes up in the real politics in twenty eight as opposed to anything that's going on in the universe of house of cards. Yeah. Agree. I think that you know it. And it it seems like it's a little bit thin where it's like, oh, look at you know, I have this off Email cabinet. It's feels like it's a little pandering. Ghetto? That's great. She has an all female candidate or female cabinet. But. I mean, it's just like it just seems like it's like, okay. We did you only do this. So that you could say you had an all female cabinet. I'm confused because the only other area where we're really touching on, you know, women's health issues is dealing with the abortion storyline. And so maybe it seems like that this is just going to be the thing that is going to she knew they had the abortion story. And so that this was her way to get out of the scandal. That was going to ensue from the abortion storyline where they're going to attack her and say Claire Underwood had an abortion at sixteen weeks. And it's like, well, I just have a cabinet that's filled with women. So I just don't think one has you know. I mean, yes, it's they're both women's issues. But without putting my foot my mouth. I just don't think that like one necessarily has anything to do with the other like if if. Again. What is the abortion news? Really? I mean, it would be bad publicity for Claire. But it's actually broke a law. I mean, maybe maybe abortion was a legal back then. But yeah, I'm not sure exactly like she uses like she threw somebody in front of a moving subway or something. I don't even want to get into you know, how many how many weeks is you know, where that where that legal or what we do not have anybody who is a medical expert on the podcast to talk about that. But hopefully, we get some more explanation in terms of what has been preempted by this very radical movement. Claire Underwood main. Yeah. Do you think that we've seen the end of markup Scher, we seem again? I think so I don't think that this is a series and for Markelle share. Yeah. I would hope not he's a good character. And I would like to see him go out a little bit more than like he tries to stage a coup Claire somehow gets the best of him. And then he's done. He still has so much connections with the shepherds, and we learnt even more. So that they were behind him getting involved in the administration in the first place. Yeah. Was kind of their handpicked guy. So there's there's still some more juice. So we can get out of this Marsha thing to those a lot going on with the shepherds, a let's let's touch on the shepherds here the show opened with Claire Underwood in a flashback with a net shepherd. What did you make that? Yeah. I I have no idea. And that was one of my complaints is like we've had all of these flashbacks and we've had them and maybe half the episodes now, but they're not really tying together that much. I guess you could maybe we'll find out that this is only has been clear in the shepherds growing up together. But. We're not getting very much story from that to devote valuable time in the final season to these flashbacks. I sat really working the young Claire, the very young Claire, you know, you got something out of it where you know, she hit the kid in the eye with the broom, and, you know, her parents were sort of like yelling at her about the way that, you know, for young lady to behave like I felt like that at least made some sense. But this one were Clare was just sort of like giving up her part in the play to net. She wanted a net to take over. I wasn't sure this comes directly after we saw Clara net smoking the joint was was Claire high during this. I think she was younger at this point than the maybe that's maybe that's the same actress. But I I assume she was a little bit younger flashback. Yeah. But yeah, I mean Claire does say that we're all going to die one day. And it sounds like she's kind of like having some really deep thought. So maybe she maybe she's really high and just like thinking about death. Yeah. And it does set up the stage for more talk about death. A lot of depth talk in the in the last is this first shadowing Claire Underwood's death here. Do we think that that is a realistic possibility in these final three episodes that we will see Claire Underwood die? Yeah. Wouldn't surprise me. Damn just as we kind of start to wind. This thing down. I don't know how they're really going to end the show that would be a satisfying conclusion. And it seems like a lot of times shows would just kind of default to the death of the main character as the final episode. Yeah. I mean could Claire Underwood die but die as a martyr or hero and get some sort of. Because what does a happy ending look like for Claire under one. Yeah. That could be a happy ending that you know, she dies as a hero. And is remembered with this. As this great president or Hearst woman president that we close on sort of like a young woman giving his speech about how clear Underwood has changed the United States of America. And she's like this transformational figure of our first woman president who ended up being this great role model for women. I definitely could see the show spinning it in that way, where she is sort of this. You know looked at as a great figure. Yeah. It's too bad that she spent a good portion of her last year of life just completely like negating her responsibilities as president and cooped up in the White House with everybody talking about how she's not doing your job. Right. But you know, maybe she has like a great run here at the end because that has been a theme of the show that they don't have children the Underwood's what they have is legacy and real what like Frank Underwood have. Very tarnished. His legacy that he is left behind. But maybe for Claire Underwood that there could be something. Although if she were to die us to not have time jump that legacy is something along the lines of a six month presidency. And it would be kind of an ironic conclusion if they both die, and they don't leave a legacy that they worked so long and wanted to have monuments built, and there's lots of talk of legacy throughout the series if Claire Underwood dies, and then the next scene is Hammerschmidt dropping the hammer with all this evidence about her misgivings and her bad deeds that would that would be a very dark end to this show. And like, well, see they did all this bad stuff for nothing. I think Hammerschmidt going to die very soon. Hammersmith is ever releasing his findings? And I know we're not to that yet. But what's the point again? Like, why is he? Yes, okay. He's going to be able to tie Doug to Rachel which ties Frank Underwood to the death of Peter Russo. And so what Franks dead Rachel's dead Peter Rousseau's dead like this, and this is like four or five years ago at this point who cares. Schmidt is he just like pulling it the only threat he has just play in the plan the hits, you know. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think that we are pot committed with the Hammerschmidt story that, you know, he became more of a central figure in terms of the half Zoe Barnes was gone that somebody had to be you working this media angle in terms of following the Underwood's, but it seems like that there is exactly one reporter that is working this beat of the many many Underwood's scandals that have been going on over seventy chapters of this show. I think that his number is up here. Yeah. And I don't care if they wanna have the reporter who's investigating stuff. I think that makes a lot of sense. But there are fifty other things that he can be investigating. I mean, even just go one season later investigate Raymond tusk stuff or. Take your pick of the different scandals that have affected dream administration. Like, we're gonna go to the one that ties the dead president to the dead congressman loosely and right? She's just okay. If anybody sees that story, they're not gonna care at. All. Right. This would not be in the first twenty pages of the Washington Post at this point or the Washington Harold in this universe of the prostitute. That that then congressman Underwood paid off to get Pete Russo back on the wagon how many years ago who then they moved somewhere. And then his fixer ended up murdering her years down the road. Right. Although I will say that was probably the best episode of house of cards which one though Pete. Russo episode where he's where he's with Rachel. And he doesn't know what time it is. And he's all drunk, and then all of a sudden, it's six o'clock in the morning, and he's got a jump on that phone, call radio interview. That was like the episode that sold neon Haussa cards. Okay. Okay. If they want if they're trying to call back, some of the great episodes. I guess they can do that like chesser aids that neighborhood, right? And we're almost chapter eighty. It's been okay. So back to the shepherds I did like when Bill shepherd sat down with David Gregory. I feel like that house of cards. I do like these media hits. I do like checking out the different cable news shows. And like when we incorporate the real stuff, I do love that house of cards does make cable news appear to be you know, really calling it down the middle that they do not paint cable news as partisan at all. Now, they're just giving us the facts. They just really they're always looking at the constitution. What's legal? What's not legal? They never playing sides on cable news in house of cards. Well, we did have I was at MSNBC or one of the one of the clips that they showed where whoever that anchor was was saying that Claire he's like, oh, she has depression, and he's like trying to trying to diagnose he's trying to diagnose her. Like this. This this cable news anchor is trying to diagnose who who was that Lawrence O'Donnell or was that CNN. I think it was Lawrence O'Donnell was it. Wolf Blitzer wasn't wolf Blitzer captions were covering all the names. And I'm glad that you recognize that that was David Gregory. Because I was like I looked so familiar, and I was trying to figure out how I could figure out who that was because I knew it was a real person. I'm not sure we're David Gregory. I think David Gregory might be with ABC news at this point. He's he's at CNN. Now, he used to be at NBC's host. I think he took over at meet the press after the late great, Tim russert passed away. But I don't think it was working out. And he ended up moving on and Chuck Todd took over there. But David Gregory with a one on one with Bill shepherd. Yeah. Just getting all the information from Bill and. Yeah. I mean that was that was interesting. I was wondering do you think that the general public knows that there's so much of a connection between the shepherds and Claire Underwood? I mean, they've grown up together. It was seemed like this would be well recoiled gate. I probably would be reported somewhere. Yeah. So, but I mean, I guess that people are just okay with with dose shepherd going on there and saying, you know, I love this country. I also love my company and like clearly he is other motives here. Yeah. I it would be hard for like who would be the real life version of Bill shepherd. That's like such a captain of industry. But then also like the so closely tied to you know, partisan politics. Yeah, I was I was trying to figure out like who the the shepherds are supposed to be. I don't know if it's supposed to be like the coke brothers because it is siblings. Maybe maybe Mercer's who run K Cambridge Analytica. Yeah. That's interesting. And we do have like this shepherd analytic company as well. Although I think he's supposed to be sort of Jeff bays us type as well. So maybe a combination of from. Okay. Claire has a meeting with Dunkin' in this. How did this come to be? She must have just invited him. Although his mother didn't know that. He is he's gone to meet with Clare. Okay. So Claire meets with dunking. And you know, they have nice chat and Duncan says he can make things go away Claire s Dunkin about what's your first memory? Dunkin then thrown in the air. Yeah. Remembers it was a Nikon camera. What does that product placement and good memory too? I mean, I guess like how would even know that was a Nikon camera. Yeah. He he's getting his picture taken. And he looks over to the side and sees the the picture taken in a mirror. How how do you know this first memory is? I distinctly remember the cameras the Nikon. Well, if he remembers the pitcher being taken Nikon has a big Nikon logo in the front of the camera. So I couldn't read clearly sense the shape of the letters. Okay. Claire says ask your mom where you came from? And I am still very muddy about where did re where Dunkin come from. What are we getting at here? Dunkin is also very muddy on this is Dunkin adopt. Outed. What what is the reveal here? So I think there's two possibilities. One is that his father is Bill shepherd. Whether he's a product of incest or Bill shepherd and some other woman and net shepherd pretend to be his mother. So that's one option outshine shoe is that he is the offspring of one or both of the Underwood's. Yes. And during this episode, I started to think they're talking so much about how Claire Underwood had all these abortions that maybe one of them shouldn't actually have an abortion in one of them became Duncan shepherd. Okay. Now, this I think might be just a little far-fetched only because that if a net shepherd is the one trying to out Claire Underwood four the abortions. It would be unseemly unlikely that she was actually raising Claire Underwood's baby. Yeah. There must be some reason for it. But farfetched in house of cards kinda go together a lot of times. I mean, this is an episode where we just Claire Underwood lock herself as the president lockers off in the White House for a month. You know, maybe when when Duncan was born Claire Underwood made a net in dose shepherd promise her something and gave them the baby. Is it possible that cl- that Frank Underwood's so desperately wanted to baby? And Claire Underwood discerningly did not want to have offspring with Frank Underwood. Like, the idea revolted her even though she did seem to want to baby fantasies one. But they don't talk about that anymore. Is it possible that Franken would so badly wanted a child that he went out of his way to have one with a net? Yeah. I just I mean, and that's why may complained about Claire Underwood that she was so desperately wanted to not have a baby she even had an abortion at sixteen weeks to make sure that we didn't have a baby. Yeah. In that that tracks a little bit more than the baby being Clair's? But I still like to think that somehow they've have this. This tangled web that Duncan shepherd is the be literally gase of Claire and Frank Underwood, and for whatever reason shepherd has been protecting this whole life. Yeah. And maybe that information is in the will. Maybe there's something in the will that has to do with this baby. Duncan shrank Underwood his left everything to Dunkin shepherds Hunkin shepherd. Yes. Real child that would really tie everything together. Okay. But but if that the the psychiatrist read the will know. Yeah, he re, but the will doesn't I don't know if it's as clear as you know, it may just have clues. Because there's like the line in there. That's like what's the last thing that Frank gave you the letter opener. Right. The letter opener that will be used to kill clear that there is some significance there with that being the macguffin of something. So I don't know what exactly will use that for. I did love it. When as you mentioned Bill shepherd was going nuts about Dunkin shepherd going down. There this towel this towel. You're dumber. Then. Yeah. I feel like that kind of goes some points to Bill shepherd being Dunkin's father. He's talking to them. That's the way father would talk to a son who if he was really angry not necessarily the way, and I'll go would talk to us on. Yeah. I love the Seth is smarter than you. We didn't just really really getting run all over the coals their Kohl's. So ultimately later on the episode, we Dunkin gets a file folder delivered the him any looks at over. And he's upset any tells Seth to to leave. So what what has he learned? I think that's his twenty in me. That's twenty three me. But what is it that? He learned. He learned that Bill is father. Did he learn that Claire is his mother? He Frank Underwood is his father. Something that you just said one of those three I think, maybe Mark ushers father who knows ushers is father. Well, that's not going to be done now. But it's good. It's gotta be some some big reveal with somebody that we know. And it's you know, it's going to be some combination of Bill net Claire, and Frank maybe it's Bill maybe his father is Bill and his mother Claire father is Bill and his mother's. I I don't know how Claire is the mother. Yeah. That's a hard one. But it would make sense sort. It'd be like a really big surprise. If be big surprise for everybody involved. Yes. Okay. Let's talk through Doug. Doug had a lot going on this episode. Get very very dense episode. Yeah. Doug. Yeah. He's he's traveling all over the place. He's finding a psychologist. Yeah. He finds this psychologist and beats them up. Yeah. But I he's on the phone with a guy named Fred. You might recognize from the very first episode when Doug was in the psychiatric hospital, and he's talking. That guy. Fred walked by. Fred must have been either a former congressman or some big shot in DC who also was in that psychiatric hospital. Probably as part of a plea dealer an insanity deal. And so he's just gotten out. Guys popping back up. I I thought there was it was weird that they made a point of him in the first episode and now he's back some swimming. He's gonna play a role moving forward for the last couple of saids. And we see Doug. He beats up the guy and ends up telling him that tells them sorry about that. Doug, really hates shrinks, they're the most eft up out of everybody. Yeah. That was really quite the party that graphic story. Yeah. Although I don't know if we can believe any dog stores anymore. Yeah. I don't believe that one. I mean that is really out there. It doesn't matter if it's true though. Yeah. That is pretty out there. And so ultimately Doug wants to know about the last line of the will which turns out to be remember the last thing, I gave you. Which we believe is the letter opener. Yeah. And less the last thing he gave him was the twenty three and me for Duncan show. Yeah. There's a letter maybe the letter that needs to open, and we see Doug that he is still trying to track things down. We saw him talking with stand. Also, not buying stand story. That is not a STAN STAN of STAN and so- Doug goes to the White House and talks to Claire and that he is not happy to be there. He'd rather be in the west wing. I'm not sure exactly why I think it's bothering him too much to be in the room where Frank Underwood died and Claire trying to convince him look it was Frank that calls all this pain. Not me. Yeah. I don't know. I don't know if he's ever gonna turn on Frank. I don't know if he's going to believe that, but she can keep trying to beat that drum. She can try. She can try. I do feel like that. Claire outlives Doug because I can't see a scenario where Frank Underwood gets the last laugh on Claire. That's a good point. So one of the thoughts that crossed my mind about this will, and I don't know exactly how this would play out. But Claire seem so set to protect this will and this will so valuable and she can't let get his hands on it. What if the information the will is like a schematic of how? Doug can kill Claire Underwood. Like, he's like the letter Phillies. He'll yeah. Like, she has a peanut allergy exactly that that that could make sense. It's like Claire Underwood every night at seven o'clock does her her meditation, and she's not paying attention. So seven o'clock go behind Claire Underwood with the letter opener. And it's like instructions for Doug for how to kill Claire Underwood. I don't know. That might be one of more out there. They came to me, and I was like what could Claire possibly be trying to protect so much. And maybe it's her own life. Could well be could well be. But I think that maybe there is something that maybe Frank Underwood has on Claire, and maybe there's some sort of like vault or something where all of the Underwood secrets are buried. Like their secret child Dunkin? Maybe maybe Doug is gonna tell Claire that he thinks Kathy Durand still alive. And he's right guys still. He is right. He says her at the end of that scene. Whoever killed Frank will get what she or he deserves emphasis on the she. Yeah. Well, he's just preparing for the all female cabinet. So he's just trying to get used to saying she more often than. And. Doug, ends up a later on in the episode having that conversation with Hammerschmidt and Hammerschmidt wants about New Mexico. We see him throughout the whole episode. He's trying to track down what's going on with Lisa and her identity and Doug says, hey. Like hang up the phone right now are all never talk to you again. Yeah. Hammerschmidt needs be careful is his press and all the other right buttons, which are all the wrong buttons. And he's gonna get himself. Probably. And then. Doug sends message to Nathan just like, hey, are you still listening your fool if you think should protect you? Yeah. Doug knows. And we don't know exactly where Nathan's loyalty lies here. Yeah. This this this dog Claire thing is definitely gonna pick up these last couple episodes. Okay. You were right. You're right on that podcast couple of days ago. And he said the final battle is going to be dug in Clare dug in Claire we are on a collision course, I have to think that that Claire wins. And maybe she ends up wounded in some way with like either literally or figuratively. But then ultimately is able to have this legacy which ends up being loved lasting beyond her years. Yeah. And then they can pain Doug is the psychotic assassin who tried to kill Claire with her letter with her letter opener. Right that he was still Frank Underwood's henchmen. And that's the way that she's able to really divorce herself from Frank Underwood. You know, in a way that everybody really sees a divide between them, but we see that. Claire did issue. A part in for for Doug with this. The real reason why she had to go and play this part where she could sort of like the story with the how she's been in hiding for three weeks. And then the only thing she did was pardoned Doug during this time. I can't imagine that the reasons distraction. Yeah. But issue really going to give up a month of her presidency in order to distract from giving. Doug, a part in seem like nobody really was talking about it. Now, I mean. I think that might be a one day new cycle dog pardon. Yeah. And even if that's the case, you probably could have been in hiding for like five days and had the same effect twenty three days is a long time. And I don't think she cares that much about Doug's pardon. Okay. Let's talk about Jane Davis. All right. Jane? I thought she was dead earlier in the episode when those men shut up behind her. I'd I wrote my nose Schwebel dead might be the end of her. Yeah. So Jane Davis. She ends up going to go talk to Claire and she comes to the White House. And she's she's not she's not happy about Jane Davis. Not happy about the deal that Clare made with Petrov, and she doesn't like any of this things. It's all this is all too late. The storm is gathering. Yeah. But I can you help or get your jammies on. Yeah. And then she draw. The dish for great effect. Yes. Symbolism that Claire Underwood's presidency, a shattering. Yes. As a result of decisions. Okay. But later, we see Jane Davis, and she is in bed with Nassar. Nassar is the guy is he from IKEA or Syria. One or the I think he was with Aiko he was sort of working on behalf. So now, he's tied to go and sheet says like, very dehydrating and. This was crazy. Yeah. Who knew that? Jane Davis in Nassar were getting on. Yeah. She says look when the dust settles you'll get what you want and she goes to go look for her phone, and then we see that. She is in trouble. Jane, it's two black suits show up right behind the men in black. Now later on the episode. We see Jane Davis. She is not tied up, but she has been taken to Saudi Arabia. That's what they said. I guess there's no reason not to believe that Saudi Arabia, but just been a hotel room right with with tapestries, and I'll decorated okay, what is going on here that these that? Jane Davis was taken away on Clair's orders. That's what it seems like because then Claire calls her and. When Jane David when Jane Davis answer, she says that if she wants to keep her life. She needs to know when the when the cabinet is going to be making their move against her could just be that this is something separate and Jane Davis was captured and then Claire Underwood struck a plea deal to get Jane Davis out as long as she could talk on the phone, and she did seem to know she did because then Claire walked in the office at the right time. Yeah. I think Jane Davis. She's kind of knows everything that's going on everywhere. Okay. Let's talk about Kathy Durant. Kathy. Durant has made a video. She is describing how everything that went on. She's giving the date with this video sent to Claire Underwood. I don't think it's been sent anywhere yet. But I'm sure somebody will be reciting got that video. I don't know that I thought she was just recording it for. For her own kind of insurance. Especially now that her husband is disappeared. But Claire seen it, right? Claire was watching it. Was clear watching this video I leave. So I don't think we were watching Kathy Durant of film the video because Claire turned it off. Yeah. You're right. Okay. So. Maybe she just firing a warning shot then. Yeah. And then, you know, this is when Clarin Doug or talking about this, Kathy Durant thing. Do you think she sent they sent it to anybody else? They don't think so. And Doug says we'll find her. Yeah. They do think that the Russians got her out. So or the shepherds? Yeah. Or the show. I mean, we'll find out. Somebody has Kathy Durant. And this is a big loose hanging. Thread for Underwood administration is the big Meatball? That's out there. Yeah. We have a couple of these big big meet both these last three episodes. Yeah. Let's talk about the app. The at the tracking app. Yes. What is going on with the app? I don't know why we're wasting time with why we're wasting time with the app, and gene and the guy who worked at the shepherd factory and tracking that guy and why who cares? So I just don't understand why they do this. And they're also doing the Hammerschmidt storyline. If they wanted you one like media investigation, that's fine. But these just seem very like very similar plotlines. And a, you know, and maybe this this apps story is going to be something that takes down the shepherds. But. I don't I don't know what the point of it is really I think that went Hammerschmidt. And is I think that Janine has to, you know, do the right up on what the shepherds are up to. Yeah. So Hammerschmidt doesn't even seem concernable shepherds are doing he's only concerned with this Rachel store. Right. He's lost in the weeds. He's lost everything. At least Janine is following up the apps storyline. And then this is going to take down the shepherds that one once we revealed the the code. That's of tracking people on the app. Yeah. And gene just left her phone there, which I guess that she's not going to be tracked anymore. But that doesn't seem like that's the best decision. Not not necessarily the best decision. She's got separate GPS in her car to get her back because you're not going to know how to get back to Rome. Like her flight information is probably on her phone. So. I mean, yes, she's not track which he's just made life a lot more difficult for self. Okay. And then we also checked in with the latest melody cruise video. Oh, man. Melody cruise in her potty mouth melody cruise is I think she's been radicalized. Yeah. She went to the Tom Hammerschmidt school for journalists getting obsessed. She's she's off the deep end who's listening to military crews? Did she say that the president is appeared is that what it was that her hot take? That was a paralyzed P word, which she said, yeah. The the worst thing in the world is a paralyzed P-word. What I've never heard that term. That's not a thing that's a phrase or expression. Nobody's ever said that before maybe we should start quoting house of cards using that. How does melody crews have any influence also melody cruised in sync shoes that angry with Claire Underwood when we first met her in sewed one, but she is just. Her song that she's singing is. Not there's no melody there. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. What's going on says, she's sending SOS speaking of songs? So. Yes. So I I don't know this. This was a lot of stuff happened. But this episode was really all over the place. Yeah. I get like the first five minutes, and how we get like kind of we caught up after this time jump where we find out that Claire Underwood has been doing a whole lot of nothing for them on. And we get all those shots from the different news coverage of what they think of Claire Underwood. So that worked really well for forgetting us up to speed. Yeah. I think that the things that house of cards has done. Well, is, you know, in terms of like, we had the episode that was the Kathy Durant of you know, funeral and an after party where you know, stay in one place. Tell one story have sort of a, you know, a back and forth with. The with characters, and I think that gets a little too ambitious with tries to do a lot of like, you know. Sprawling all over the world, and all these different things and pulling the rug out from under people, and I don't know if necessarily they're pulling this kind of stuff off. Yeah. They do see that they get distracted with these plots. And it's one thing for that to happen in seasons. Two three four five. But when we're in the last season, we now have three hours left, and we have all of these random subplots, and we're getting introduced new characters, and we're having people that just kind of disappear. We gotta start bringing this this plane down to land. So we got to start wrapping some stuff up. So I do feel like that. This is sort of a note that we've had before where it's like, the best episodes house of cards are like, okay. This one is all taking place at the democratic convention, or you know, this is all taking place like we're in a bunker the whole episode and stuff like that. Where lection day episode, right? Really good. Right. We're sort of like, okay. Well, let's just tell one story as opposed to trying to be all over the place. But do you think you think with this episode? There was so much information that they're hopefully setting the table for kind of three knockout episodes that we get to to wrap this thing up. Yeah. So we kind of know where all the chips are we know we're all of our characters are looking and what they're investigating and what their motivations are. And now they can start kind of putting the clothes some of these chapters. It's like the show wants to have it both ways where we get Claire breaking the fourth wall. And she's like trust me. I got this. This is all part of my plan. But if you're gonna tell us as part of the plant and like explained the plan. Yeah. What are we seeing? What is what is happening right now. It's hopefully, we'll we'll find out what this all meant accepts owed. And like what was what was the point of going away for twenty three days and replacing your whole cabinet? Okay. But we'll see. I mean, I predict that we will start the next episode with this is going to be greeted by you know, a lot of accolades in the media. I guess so it just that would be disappointing. Like is. That's probably what's gonna happen. But it just feels so pandering like, okay. What is she actually going to get done? Just because she named all these women to her cabinet. That's great and happy, and I think that is a step in the right direction but disappeared for a month and just fired her vice president, I think and all the cabinet now. We're going to have to get a new vice president in there as well. Yes. Who will certainly be the Brett call. Oh, you think it's going to be who what's it gonna be the pressing? Isn't there line of succession, shouldn't it be the house majority leader have we seen the house majority leader not in a while? I don't even know it might be Mendoza. Stop Womack of this. It's probably gonna be. I mean, if it's definitely going to be a character that we've seen in season six. It'll be Tom Hammerschmidt before. It's mendoza. Next episode. Open on Anderson Cooper of NS, stunning move. The president has replaced her whole cabinet with all with an all female cabinet. And it's a move that's being called bold and courageous and strong by ninety two percent of Americans. Ninety two percent. That's pretty good. It's pretty good percentage. Yeah. So I think that we're going to see that. This is a move that was received very well. Yeah. Well. Even melody crews will be like, wow, Claire Underwood. Really? Did it this time? I mean, this is just like it seems to easy. And that's what I haven't liked to has happened on the shows when things come to the main characters too, easy that was one of my problems with season to you. It felt like Frank Underwood ascended very easily in that season. And I get that these characters are going to succeed. But I don't want to be watching a show or we're in the dark the whole time. And then it's like, oh, this was my planet. It wasn't even that great of a plan. But it worked and I'm great, okay. We'll see how it goes any questions about chapter seventy besides the many that we have. Yes. Lots of questions on our end one thing. I noticed was that Bill shepherd is putting some random white powder in his drink. Oh, yeah. Up on that. Is that going to be checkoff stevia or? Oh. I don't know if it's stevia or bad stevia. And it's there's some significance there. I don't know. If that's whatever drugs. He's taking that are keeping keeping his heart beating. Yeah. Really wrong. Yeah. We don't know what's wrong with him. Also, we do know that he has some sort of illness the ashtray, but we don't know what that mystery by the way, twenty two minutes into the next episode is all I have left to cash in on my Greg Kinnear. Not gonna make it much further. Yeah. I have to start my star. My stop watch. When I when I started the episode. I have a feeling that he's not dying in the middle of the episode. Maybe the first maybe the first scene is that the news of the all female cabinet comes out and killed Bill. Chef kills both Shepard. He's he so upset. Yeah. Okay. Do we have any feedback questions? Good one. Should we add calc- the press secretary to the debt clock? No, she will not die. Yeah. She's she's scented very rapidly in the White House. They'll good for her from just just intern trying to take the microphone away from people. And now leading these press conferences in meeting with Claire Underwood in her office. Yeah. How did Claire Underwood get her hands on the the press room briefing footage that seemingly nobody else had? Nathan probably Nathan green. Okay. I guess any questions about anything with it like security or surveillance. I just assume Nathan green, okay. Okay. But I don't think he's gonna die. Do you? I'll say sure, yeah. Why not let me just take everybody out? I guess she's a loose end. She a loose ends. She now she knows that she made up information about Marco share. Yeah. So okay. There's gotta be some reason. And maybe this was it. But Claire seemed very dead set on keeping calcium in the White House and in her position. So maybe there's a reason for it. Maybe maybe. Okay. Anything else? I mean, Johnny a couple of other questions that was the only the only one that we haven't covered. Okay. All right. So only three episodes left the house. The cars. We back on our next episode. Recapping chapter seventy one of house of cards as we are in the home stretch here on the house of cards recap podcast Zack, let me take a moment. And thank our sponsor for this episode of the house of cards the recap podcasts, and those are friends over at a bet online dot A G.

A real lag in the scoring now the scoring updated. And so after week eleven I or after we ten heading into week eleven I am just one point off the lead. Only one point one point that me lead.

Speaking of bedding. Did you see that Mark usher poker game with Bill shepherd? That was a real high stakes poker action. Oh, yeah. That looks like a running out Rena running our Brenno or something I feel like I was actually very low stakes for of Mr Vice president and Bill shepherd. I wasn't sure if they were trying to show like something about Mark usher, and how he won't take any risks unless less like Bill shepherd tells them to do something. And I don't know if they were trying to make that like a real symbolic seen or what? But he's he's got a good hand. Like, I can read him. Yeah. But we did have that scene. And then we had the the back room cabinet meeting as well. So lots of wheeling and dealing and this up so that all led to nothing for all these people tried to make a move on. Claire. Okay. So people are trying to call Clair's bluff. But they are not they're not able to do it. It's just a crazy game of poker. If Mark usher goes down for he colluded with Russia. This is real this was very very convenient. That this all worked out this way. Yeah. Well, you know, Claire Underwood knew knew how to get the information from the right people. I guess, but yeah, I'm hoping for some. Drama higher stakes as we had into these last couple of so it's not just like collusion. Let's get him for some real stuff. Are you saying collusion is not a crime? No. It's just not an exciting for from here. Takes a really long time to try to to try to prove. Yeah. Actually was just finishing podcast all about the Watergate, and it took like over two years for the crime to get through all of the all the developments for Watergate from what I hear it does not seem like it's just like an open and shut case FBI comes in for one day. Yeah. Well, I guess if you have if you have the White House press secretary saying one thing. Yeah. Then under oath, she she overheard this person talking. So clearly, he's he's it. Throw the book at him. He's done. All right. Zach Brooks great job. Once again, you could follow Zach on Twitter. He is at Brooks Z A. We've got five house of cards recaps in the books now only three more to go this season. It's crazy only three more to go ever. But I'm getting pumped up. You never know. I could see house cards coming back at some point. I mean, we're we're about to get breaking bad movie. We had Roseanne comeback and the waiter Zan comeback without Roseanne. So what is dead may never die? What is that made? Never. I can't imagine that the IP on house of cards is such a hot commodity minus Kevin Spacey that people are going to want to do a whole new house of cards. You never know. I mean, we've seen it happen before. But Netflix does have so much content. They have so much other content. So I don't know. I don't see it. But I guess never say never. Yeah. Exactly. All right. I'll keep my phone number the same just in case ever comes back. You can text me. And we can we can start this podcast backup. Twenty seven Underwood twenty Twenty-eight Underwood twenty thirty two Underwood twenty thirty six so has any show aged worse than house of cards. Oh, that's a good one to think about before the next Bacchus? I'm sure there's another example, but house of cards has not aged very well for sure it definitely came out at like the worst time that it could possibly come out. And then with everything with Kevin Spacey. Yeah. Yeah. Nothing. Nothing about anybody else on this show that we know about the shot a shot to one of our listeners, a Colin Latchford who went back and rewatch the whole series before it started caused cost Drotsky texted me. And he he said he is in the middle of season five right now wants to know if it gets good. Five gets good or the show gets good. I think he said he liked the first couple of like the first couple of seasons. And then he felt like it dragged. And I told them I remembered liking season five and that I was like in season six so far. I feel like that. We've enjoyed you know, every season of it. But I just don't know necessarily. If you went back and watched it, you know, it's a show that's made for binging. That's for sure. Like when you're when you're sitting here, and you're you watch us upset, and you can't just go onto the next one. And find out what the reaction is declares. Clair's announcement then in when you sit there, and you you kinda dig and you're like, what was the point of that? And why are we wasting time with this house of cards is this show that when you chew it, you know, sometimes you get a bad bite here and there so we've come this far three more to go. Can't wait to talk to you again chapter seventy-one, dick, everybody, I.

Saturday morning Dorian male ESPN radio week nine college football were all over. Mel, you know, as we're always presented by progressive insurance. You know, we lead college football every Saturday morning, usually unless and we're gonna get there in fifteen minutes, a promise you unless a World Series game lasts until three thirty AM eastern time goes a postseason record eighteen innings and ends with a walk off home run that is justification for leading Dorian. Melanie, SPN radio even in the fall, even in the fault. Right. How late did you stay up? I got two tenth. I got into extra innings, and I knew I had to get up at four thirty. So I couldn't go any further. But I did watch everything when we woke up and got caught up. Then we got a lot to talk about. We do I made it to the end of the night. Mel I'm I'm a dodger fan. Heck, I took my son to game two at Fenway on a last second Wim flew up watch the game. Flu bag was unbelievable. Living the dream bucket list getting destroyed. But I couldn't stay up because I knew I had to get up on a long day. Two ends at one in the morning or so every Saturday night, I've got to go to bed. So I did. And then I wake up, and I see that the dodgers won in the eighteenth. But it's how it happened. If you're listening to us, you probably have no idea what happened while you were sleeping in a game that ended three and a half hours ago. So let's go through it quickly. Some of the highlights we go to the eighth inning Boston down one nothing after Walker. Bueller through seven shutout kenley Jansen comes in typically and moment for a lot of dodger fans. Jackie Bradley, jR, with nobody on Janssen kicks. Fires at a swing at a high fly Paul pride. Bright field. Jackie Bradley, jR, homers off Tenley Jansen and ties it here in the eighth inning. Boston. Got the moment. I'm trying to go up three games to non in the ninth, by the way, LA had Cody Bellinger on I with one out. He gets picked off throws away a chance to potentially win this thing in the night. Now, we go to the tenth top of the inning and ward, oh, Nunez up. Tabet one on a rather two runners on the corners. Go ahead run. Standing on third base with one out when Nunez flies to center. But one swing and a fly ball to center field. Not that Jeep you're setting up makes the cat's hair cubs Kinzler heck comes. They do. Home app, aside is rich tired. I'm telling you for a crowd that is known to be more laid back when it is postseason time dodger stadium's as loud as anywhere. All right. So that's the ten we go to the thirteen still tied at one Nunez back up at the plate. Scott Alexander pitching, wanna know the count. Nobody out rock coal. Pretty good speed at second and the pitch swing and a grandma weekly hit to the first base side of the mound, and they don't get the play and the bullets flipped beyond the bag at I hope comes into score. Oh my goodness. The Red Sox. Take the lead in the thirteenth. Bottom of the thirteenth now for the dodgers, max Muncie on base. Yes. Yelp we hitting and it was an innocent looking ground ball. Look back by of oldie. One one on the way to swing a ground ball. But backhanded by the second basement kids. Oh, I would comes into score. Oh, man. He kids three. Try to get the last out in the air ties the game game should have been over. But it wasn't. So now it's too fast forward five innings Nate de whose last three appearances had been out of the bullpen throwing pitch number ninety seven and max Muncie at the plate with nobody out. Have a pitch swing high fly ball center. Did he get it? X? We said it about four hours ago that he's really do. Well, better late than never in a must-win game. The dodgers did done. Spun saying, what's it all? Dodger Stadium explodes as they ran. The longest craziest World Series game ever three two. We got a series. Now, the I love LA in the background. I can't imagine how loud it was being screamed as you heard Dan Shulman and Chris singleton with a call on ESPN radio and with that. Mel it's a two one World Series longest postseason game ever. In terms of time seven hours, twenty minutes longest game in World Series history in terms of innings. They used a combined forty six players eighteen pitchers. The hitters lineups were a combined eighteen of one eighteen at the plate. That's a one fifty three average and Red Sox batters in the one to four spots when a combined over twenty eight with twelve strikeouts. And now we've got us sales a series. Yeah. Wild game. I it was a game where you say what saves the day and and go down three, oh, you got really little chance. But to get this a two one we'll debate with some experts. What is momentum mean in baseball? We know what it means to football. You got a huge win the. Let down you have a loss at the end. There's a carry over to the next week yet. Usually doesn't football has momentum's in a game. Like this house at determined for baseball. What impact does that a baseball game? We're pitching so important. You think of that Dave Roberts saying, hey, we're in pretty good shape pitching once. I don't know about them. Nobody can be nobody. I don't know about the Red Sox. Drew Pomeranz looks like he could be on the mound for the Red Sox. It'll be rich hill for the dodgers. Obviously coming off a game like this. And you let it get away. If you're the Red Sox, you could've been up three. Oh and Kinzler play at the plate give Belgium credit. He set himself. You had momentum going forward. He made act of a throw got it done. There doesn't make that play. Then make that throw Red Sox probably win. Then you think about the thirteenth in Kinzler heck of a player gutty veteran. Okay. Looks like he got a little cross up because he was the one. He's feeling the ball outfield. Grass got the dirt yet. You stumble on your bumbling a little bit to the front of it. The aback candy got caught in between then to throw which was. We said what ten to twelve yards off? And it was the first down away from and that's another one you to get away. And then it drags into the eighteenth. So how do the Red Sox after expelling all that energy? You get all that going for seven plus off hours. How did you get back to playing in this next game and feeling good about it? But hey baseball is momentum important baseball will see we will see typically you're only as good as you're starting pitcher though and the next day. And that's why it's going to be on Pomeranz enrich hill to see. What happens in an ultra important now game four is LA cantata series tonight. You can hear that on ESPN radio. Of course after the game. Alex Cora Red Sox manager having to answer the question about whether this could be a crushing loss. Not at all not Christian at all. I just talked to them. I say how I told him. How proud I am. You know, the the effort was amazing. Those are great baseball game. I don't know seven hour, whatever he was, you know, probably people back home are waking up right now to the end. But is is probably. One of the best. If not the best game, I have been part of the effort from most is you know, what they did tonight though. So mazing those amazing. We have he's like, I'm good. I'm good. I'm good. So. We will not but out tomorrow. There's a few guys lining up in my office to to starting tomorrow. So we'll we'll decide what we do. And we'll be fun. What a game unbelievable game. Jessica Mendoza MLB anlysts going to join us a little later in the show on the shell Pennzoil performance line is I remind you ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance this year. We celebrate six years and over six hundred cars given to veterans giving thanks by providing independence for those who protected. Learn more at keys to progress dot com. Now, we dive into week nine of the college football season. The biggest games on the schedule. What we are looking for in those Dorian Mel ESPN radio ESPN app as a young boy Gavin loved playing football. He lived in briefed wanted to go through when he'd spent hours upon hours. Just practicing his touchdown dances at one day. Well, getting fitted for bifocals, he realized he was never much good at throwing or running or country. Don't even. Yeah. Gavin's chances of playing pro football. We're looking like fourth and long very long, but he did hear how Danko could save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved. Then he did kind of touchdown dense. At least he was still good at that. In Georgia in Jacksonville game day, actually be down there to help set the scene. Just a big game. Really? It's really bad. This is a great robbery game. I mean, the pageantry differ that other games because nobody's ever all the tail getting just a sea of people to stadium split down. The middle is pretty excited you expect on paper for this to be a low scoring game in Florida. I think they need more supposed to blame George keep everything in front of them. They're gonna let Florida dinking Deng her for a big battle down Jacksonville. Florida Georgia line. It'll be it'll be tested today. Jacksonville the site as always a top ten battle. Do you know it's been ten years Mel since Georgia and Florida played a game each ranked in the top ten ten years. The last time Georgia one one of those games was in. I believe nineteen Eighty-three either eighty three or eighty four huge. So that's one of the big headline. We've got three big I would say headliner type games three ranked versus ranked games in this one will go a long way to determining who wins the east and Kentucky has a say in this thing, and we'll talk about their matchup 'cause they got their own worries today. But those three teams are all one loss conference teams right now and Kentucky has an edge because they be Florida. They host Georgia next week, but Georgia Florida here huge game in the east Mel huge game. Remember? Tuck Balu hitting Lindsay, Scott, Georgia, Florida, great memories of this arrival game. And I think you look at the Georgia the question going in in the injury going. Dr is about the quarterback shake from all the very subpar effort against LSU forty-seven percent completion percentage couple interceptions. All these things about trying to balance back from that door Drake from knowing that you've got Justin fields number one player in the entire nation. Number one quarterback number one player at any position coming to Georgia not to be an accent piece. That would be the starter knowing he would have to beat out Jake from at some point, okay or and moving on and transferring somewhere else. Okay. And if he does win the job would happen to the Jake from because it's gonna play out down the road. But a lot of what happens down the road will be determined today. Three thirty eastern in this game with Georgia, Florida. Yeah. You can hear that today. Florida Georgia presented by Dr Pepper. Coverage begins to thirty eastern on ESPN radio ESPN radio dot com and the ESPN app. It's you know, I think Georgia they both. Have are coming off of a bye Georgia's last neither of them. Frankly were great in their last game. Florida had to struggle come from eighteen down to beat Vanderbilt in Nashville, and then Georgia got blasted by twenty at LSU. And here's where I'm concerned if I'm George here's where I'm really concerned. If I'm Georgia. We got whipped on both lines of scrimmage. You. Don't typically see that. Now LSU's a team that obviously is maybe these surprise of college football. They're better than anybody thought. They would be they are a legit top five team and a national championship contender. We'll see especially when they play Alabama next week in Baton Rouge. But they pushed Georgia around on both sides of the line of scrimmage. They were able to run on Georgia for two hundred and seventy five yards Florida is a good running team. And they do it with a number of guys who do it a number of ways. So I'm a little bit concerned if I'm Georgia about that couple of things Dr I think both quarterbacks obviously, you think about froms confidence level. We're would be you think about fully bay Franks at fifty six point six percent. Accuracy issues at times have kind of haunted him you think about defenses about Georgia roquan Smith. We're okay, they're gonna kinda reload not rebuild. They haven't been the same defense. They have right now nine sacks are tied for seventieth in the nation. And sacks. Georgia's not been able to the Andre Walker hasn't been that sack artists, they hoped he would be okay. So the Georgia challenged on the defensive side Florida with the running by committee taking pressure off of France with the Andrea swift and Holyfield taking pressure off from I think the key to the game. Dr is who runs the ball more effectively, and you can run it these defenses. But who runs a better? I taking pressure off the quarterback is going to win this football game. I agree there. So that's a huge one in Jacksonville, Florida and Georgia how about Happy Valley will Penn State's not what we thought that was a team. I had in the playoff my bad on that. Now, they host Iowa. I think I will. You've got this crowded mess in the big ten west not a great division by any stretch of the imagination. But you've got four teens that are sitting there with one conference loss, you've got Iowa Wisconsin, northwestern and a team I think maybe playing as well as anybody in in the conference Purdue, but I would goes now to Penn State with a defense that just should not be overlooked. They gave up one hundred fifteen yards of offense to Maryland last week. Penn State had to battle just kinda putting away Indiana after their home loss to Michigan state. This is different looking Penn State offense. It's one that cannot find a rhythm trace McSorley looks drastically different. I don't know obviously, not having saquon Barkley is an issue, but they've got talent still. There's no Joe Moorhead calling the place. He's now at Mississippi State. Of course, both teams get to the quarterback. This might be just feels like one of those low scoring games that I give Iowa really good chance to win on the road. Well, Pence that you mentioned the offense story they lost a lot of guys. And mal Sanders has made up for say. Would say special mouth standards is a really good back. The question about that. But I think you look at all the skill talent that they lost around the quarterback sickie Sean Hamilton in addition to Barkley, so I think that has as forced them to kind of get back to saying. Okay, McSorley, the guy, we'll be okay. But you can't put it all on trace McSorley? And I think they have and they've been forced to probably do too much of that. I think you'll get Iowa the fence playing great what I wanna see for you. Gotta star tight end and Noah fan now TJ Hodgkinson's really kinda stole the spotlight a little bit of tied in the third year sophomore, but Noah fan is gifted a tight end or is in college football. He's a first round caliber player come late April. He's got a touchdown reception for their last five games, the one negative Dari. He's got less than thirty receiving yards and three the last four games that can't happen. If you're eight Stanley if you're Brian the offensive coordinator, you gotta get no fan more involved. He's obviously one on pace now to have more catches and he has had in this career on the season fine. But he should be a six to eight catch a game tight end. He has not been Dr. I want to see if that starts happening now in this game against Penn State because I think get needs to happen because no offense too good to be overlooked over four quarter periods at Penn State is gonna have a heart. Both of these teams can get to the quarterback and Ragun sacks. But I was one of the best in the country when it comes to protecting their quarterback Nathan Stanley they've given up just six secs so far this season. So that's why Penn State. No. By the way, you can see that three thirty eastern time on ESPN. Then you go to the Pac twelve the story out of the pack twelve last week was what Washington state, right? The quickstart all the emotion all the energy all the hype with him hosting game day, and they came out. I thought they were going to come out flat. I thought Oregon win that game. They came out on fire. They had to hang on to beat Oregon. Now was who goes to Stanford in when I'm looking at this. I'm looking at Stanford a team that gives up a ton through the air ninety seventh in pass defense and they're going up against the top passing offense in the country led by Gardner Minch. Shoe and a crew of receivers that he will find e sop Winston Desmond patent. Devante on Martin. There are guys that Stanford need to be worried about a lot of guys Gardner Menchu's been the story. Former East Carolina quarterback moves onto Washington state. And he's been unbelievable. Yeah. I think you look at his touchdown interception ratio of fifteen to three in the four conference games. Okay. Stanford's middle of the pack when it comes to pass the fence men's shoes been sacked just five times, Andre Dillard, Aleph left tackles on a great job really keying that offensive line. Think about where Stanford instrument injury standpoint with Bryce love not being the factor. They thought he would be cage Acosta was well. I think this is a Stanford team right now that it it just doesn't have that it factor. They haven't been able to say we can define ourselves as Bryce love leading our offense. We're costal. They're just kind of just trying to find their way. Dr Washington state knows who they're stars. Are they had the fine guys? They're in a better place. But one thing David Shaw, David Shaw, Ricardo always. Find a way at some point to surprise people must be the game. Yeah. You're absolutely right. And you look at was here's the problem with was they've still got their scheduled. Just can we talked about this last week their schedule you still very very difficult. I mean, it's if they run this thing, we look in any potential, you think they have a shot of getting in if they run this. And that's a big time. Things that. But it's just by the way, we say David Shaw surprise people Stanford's a three point favorite. I know. All right. But it see it seems that it feels like Washington state's a favorite. They're not saying for this. Yeah. By the way, after this while you goes hosts cow, then they go to Colorado the end the season it gets Washington. So there's a lot that the cougs are still going to have to prove still ahead. So many more games to dive into we take a deeper dive into some games in college football. It's ESPN radio Dorian. Mel ESPN radio. Always presented by progressive insurance. Guests will join us over the shell Pennzoil performance line. The first of which will be the bear Chris Philippa from game day. You know him from the Stanford. Stephen the bear podcast. Falicov course in Jacksonville port of game day. He'll call us. Join us I should say with his three college picks and one pick from the NF L fully co two and one with his college picks last week my right on the two, right? Correct. Tended to for the year in college five and two in the NFL is crystal Ican Spreitzer has been on in Fogo sprites are going to join us from Vegas at nine fifteen eastern time after one hundred years of making shaving cream Barbara solves finally making razors. That was an brainer. Try to Barbara all all tra- six plus six within blades. Save now at Barbara salt dot com. We gave you the headline games. Just a few minutes ago of week nine in college football. Let's fly a little bit. But not too far under the radar. Number two Clinton's in Florida state. I am. I thought I thought NC state would at least cover last week against Clemson. I was wrong Clemson was magnificent. Now, they go to tell a Hassi, and I think Mel if in a new eastern ABC if you haven't really seen Florida state over the last month or so you would say oh my gosh. That team is miserable there horrible clemson's going to run them out of their own building. And maybe they will because clemson's that good. But Florida state's one three of the last four their only loss was a game against Miami. They lost twenty eight twenty seven after having a huge lead. I liked the offense and the way it's moving. The Andre Francois has been affected in the passing game Mel camakers and the running game there's a good balance to this. But more than anything else. You know, what teams are averaging on the ground per carry against Florida state this season. Not good two point six yards airy. Yup. And as good as Travis E T in has been it's not going to be easy sledding for him, the Florida state's a seventeen point dog. I'll tell you know, I like them to cover. I don't know if I like them to win. But I don't think this is a walk in the park for Clemson teams have not run the ball on state. That's a stout defensive. You mentioned the two point six percents fourth best in the country, Dr and they got a pass rusher as well. So not only can they stop the run. But Brian burns is second in the nation has got nine sacks to me a first round pick. He can bend the he's not Myles Garrett. But he can bend it and you play on his feet or with his hand on the ground. Okay. And I think when you look at getting after the quarterback you got a freshman quarterback in Trevor Lawrence. Can they force him into some mistakes? Eat the end running the ball at the end was held to a season low thirty nine rushing yards last week. Okay. We had three rushing touchdowns the third straight game against NC state. You know yet? So he's looking to balance back against. Stout defence. I think you look at from an offensive standpoint Cam acres to running back got it going for Florida state last week Keith Gavin, though, Dr is a talented receiver. They gotta get him more involved than what we've seen the last three games. He's got five catches Nyquil Murray's been more the go-to guy for the Andre Francois. Then Gavin has Daven with the matchup advanced he can great with his size and athleticism. They get him more involved than four states. Offense is ready to gel. Number twenty one south Florida, Houston, three thirty eastern. You can see either on ABC or ESPN two depending upon where you live is there. There's not an undefeated team in the country hanging on quite the way USF is. I mean, they talk about dodging some bullets Mel. And now they go to Houston could deal with a six one team and major Applewhite's got his Cougars playing awfully well back home after a couple of road wins. They are throwing the ball all over the place behind the arm of Eric king who stands just five ten twenty three touchdown passes, just three interceptions. They're what seven and a half point favorites. Houston is bulls. By the way, Scott sprites are one of his three picks little spoiler. We'll be on this game. So see at nine fifteen eastern who he likes? He says this is a very playable game. I kind of have a hunch this is worthy. Will bulls run of undefeated of undefeated season comes to an end here and a lot of NFL scouts story. We watch us Oliver any game at our Claes. You're gonna watch it out. Now it all overhead a sack last week goes against navy. They'll throw the ball much. We got into backfield he wreaks havoc. At two sacks the previous week against these Carolina. First sacks of the year, the Donald comparisons. Or an exaggeration. He's not Aaron Donald Aaron Donald had great sack numbers at Oliver does not and all of us to seventy three pounds. He's not to ninety. So I think you look at it. All right now, I wanna see more dominance, but he's questionable now he's dealing with Bruce and his right knee out there. But you wanna see playthrough and be dominant. You're the you should be able to throw these offensive alignment around and make make plays and getting it back you and wreak havoc and coming down to. Catch if you're going to maintain that second pick overall status right behind Nick Bosa, then you gotta start. Getting more sacks down the stretch story again, not against the elite line up against those guys. And we in the NFL you're going up against the best center guards in the world. I think a lot of NFL people wanna see a little bit more from a sack standpoint met Oliver moving into November. Number twelve Kentucky at Missouri. Boy. Vegas loves this is the trap game of the week. I'm is he. Yet Missouri's what get like a lane touchdown in this game. Right. I mean, it's this is what a fun Kentucky sitting at number twelve no national respect they're tied for first in the east with Georgia and Florida they've already beaten Florida, they host Georgia next week. But they can't throw the ball melody one last week despite eighteen yards. Paseo weather was a factor. Oh, come on. Jerry Wilson's not throwing the football. What you struggle, and you got the wind at the oh with it will be an issue. No question. Right. The guy the guy can throat and drew lock which you want to see what drew lock is step it up against some some good teams. And one thing Kentucky as a secondary which can make plays Mike Edwards and baby. They got guys and they got Josh Allen. Who's been as good coming off the edge as anybody Brian burns, a Florida state, Josh Allen to Kentucky. But outstanding getting after the quarterback from the outside. Kentucky can get after. Drew lock. I'm gonna say again, we talked about our at Oliver from from Houston. I wanna see drew lock against a team like Kentucky light it up where against lesser opponents. He has against strong opponents. He hasn't. Now. It's not all in the quarterback need help from your line. And you're supporting cast and Emmanuel hall hasn't been healthy. We get all that. But if true locks going to be a first round pick, you should be able to do a good job against Kentucky. You're a seven point favorite. Get it done. Drew lock. And try to get that first round grade that we think you're capable of. Number six, Texas said Oklahoma state. Texas is in line for a shot at a big twelve championship game. We know they beat Oklahoma. It's an improved very very improved team. They struggled with Baylor last week. But remember they lost San or two weeks ago in their last game. But they lost him allegory. They're starting quarterback who's expected to be back Oklahoma state two weeks ago when their last game got blasted at Kansas state and inexcusable showing for a team that scored just twelve points and gave Justice hill stud running back just eleven carries mill. Yeah. And I think you're right about that get Justice ill more involved and take pressure off Taylor, Cornelius. We know that can Elliot's has been less than fifty percent in two of their three losses story. I think you look at Sam etlinger as gutty a competitor. You'll find people don't realize how good he's been this year. No, no, you're right. I mean, he has been we saw I'm working as legs crowd, frankly with in the Oklahoma, and he's still with the shoulder Dari. And they gotta take pressure Ingram. The freshman running back. We'll do that. But Kevin Colin Johnson and having Humphries got two elite receivers throw to L on your can extend the play with his legs. He is a guy who has gotten it done. I want to see if they can get after him. They've got a lot of sacks Oklahoma state. Does a lot of pressures? We'll see but it Sam L on your tough over achieving quarterback. No question about it, Texas and Oklahoma state that's prime time tonight and still want her on a B C. So there's some of the under the radar games to keep an eye on. Let's see if Chris finally the bear is gonna play any of those. Or if he's wanting to make a play on some of the biggest games of the day. Maybe Georgia Florida. He's down there in Jacksonville on game day. Maybe it's Iowa Penn State or Washington state. He has an opinion on Oklahoma state, Texas. Oh does. Okay. He does from his dot com. Article have an opinion on that. Okay. Good. So he's next as well. Welcome him in. By the way, our hot list is coming in. And I would I would love actually on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed some of your personal bucket list items K, and I'm going to read some of these on Twitter because at eight eastern so in twenty minutes, we're going to our hot list our own personal bugging list items in this came up because I fortunately lived a bucket list item on Wednesday male. I took Nick on a whim decided this Tuesday afternoon from Charlotte to Boston for Fenway park for game two of the World Series here.

And never forget. And I hope my son doesn't either he's thirteen better. Not but personal bucket list items start getting those Eddie SPN, Dr got six for three spots. Seriously. Okay. All right. I love it. I gotta tell you this. And then we're going to jump out of here. My wife is just waking up, and she's she's hammering me with these texts because she is a dodger fan with us with us to Atlanta in to watch. She just texted me. She just woke up and saw what happened. She sends me the box score. And it says, and then my uncle Jim in LA was at the game. And she just said I saw gyms post just now. Holy blank.

So Chris leak in next his three college picks and his NFL pick then our own hot list bucket list. And I want yours as well at ESPN on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed. It's ESPN radio ESPN app. Doreen male ESPN radio. I was telling you earlier. Then I wanted your bucket list. Item for our hot list coming up in fifteen minutes on our bucket. And then Mike a appropriately reminds me Dari you keep forgetting to say sports bucket list. If I need to specify we have a problem here. All right. Although just for entertainment purposes, I'd take your bucket list idea to I am more than curious to see what you're gonna say there. We're going to give you are here. Coming up in fifteen minutes as promised. Feliks Crispell Eka the bear joins us. You know from game day. You'll see him today in Jacksonville college game day. You also know him from the Stanford. Stephen the bear podcast Feliks. Good to have you with us. What's the what's the feel in Jacksonville right now? Early morning proud to Arkham lot suing up for a really good hell gate seen a lot of dogs. Wada Gators, and I think you can make a a if you're a fan of either keen, you could probably make a good case why you think your team a win today. Like it. I like it. Give me your twenty-five second take on what happens with from fields throughout the rest of the season. I think today you're going to see a lot more just feel in the offense. I think all week and what happened with Jay clump struggling behind a a so-so offense of line Yellow Sea loss. I think feels must be better one at the same time. I think you could see Georgia really dedicate themselves to the running game. Because the Gators have allowed a lot of big plays on the ground this year. The second is that warning game go up there 'cause bear. Let's give it some games here who you feeling. Tonight. I like Oklahoma state is three three and a half point home underdog against Texas. I know that lost to Kansas state, look terrible. But it was a classic Bill Schneider game where the Wildcats really control the clock. It was a seventeen twelve game going to the fourth quarter final school. I think tonight at home that the Cowboys are going to need if that's what we believed who fall. I'd be really surprised if a Oklahoma state didn't play wall tonight. We'll give you three and a half. Because I see one of those you got the Cowboys plus three and a half at home where else are you going? I like the Wolfpack words Nevada. They're completely different offense with target that he had quarterback nearly Boise. Put up a huge number on Hawaii last week beat air or Cindy states. Offense unit is not very good at all the the office of numbers with the Chapman out and running back out as well. Or nearly as good as what they've been defensively. I think they're they'll they'll get a couple of stops against about it. But ultimately, I think games you in the Wolfpack offense to in two points. And they'll be speaking. How about the Oregon letdown factor against Arizona tonight? Chris. I think it's a bad for. I know a lot of people wipe it sucks thinking they'll bounce back from a from the loss that it was last week. But I don't know all the upset over Washington. Got a second straight conference road game at a place where better Oregon teams have gone and not only struggle a law even with Rodriguez last week, y'all thinks average over seventy dollars to play at UCLA. They really did themselves in with a couple of turnovers. Couple of short field goals with red zone struggles. I like every tonight, plus the point I mean, they were blown up like Utah Utah's probably the best team in the pack twelve so era zone humidity. Wildcats big home dog. And I all right. So I'm gonna give you I'm looking at this nine and a half. So you're going to get Zona at home plus nine and a half against Oregon. The number on the Nevada game at home against San Diego State is wolf pack, plus two and a half. So you're going three underdogs today. You're taking Arizona, Nevada and Oklahoma. State Arezzo and Oklahoma state are the home underdogs. They're actually no they're all of them. You got you got three home dogs. Okay. Like her. All right Feliks. How about your NFL pick? I'm gonna I was beating clean the giants at home against the team that I think has a bit of a letdown. Also over the top. Was but I'm going to wait on Tampa Bay. Buccaneers offense is a pretty good, and I could see them either a winning became out, right or having. That's after all wide opening six it out as a four and a half point eight hundred dollars. So I think the Bengals are a little bit of the paper tiger dirt record. I think that's showed. So that in Kansas City. So give me give me before. All right. He's calling your surprise team a paper tiger here you big on the Bengals issue. I just had the over several whatever it was back in August. I thought the Bengals go over the total of the year. Well, well, that's that's a great job. I melt or really look at schedule when you're out that you know, what they're better than a lot of teams that they're gonna play. And they're gonna pick up some wings against some teams that very easily should be so thumbs up on that. Chris is we need we need. Talk before the year you when when he can have a little a little Sunday, baby. You you myself proud. NFL in total. Game. Chris EMMY great show today on game day, man. We'll be watching. Thank you so much. We'll try talking great thing. About sounds great. That is crystal Eka brought to you by Pennzoil synthetics taking synthetic motor oil performance to a whole new level. Make the switch to Pennzoil synthetics today. Little teaser here for those of you. And by the way, I just tweeted fully Kaz picks at ESPN Dari is my Twitter handle if you want to jump on and grab those three home underdogs. And by the way, we'll say this just a little tease here. I won't tell you which one one of his three college picks. Is shared by Scott Spreitzer who's been on a roll out in Vegas who will join us at nine fifteen eastern. So I'm not gonna tell you who it is. Let him tell you. But of the each pick three college games. They're one of their three is identical. Okay. They liked the same team in the same game. So if you really wanna feel better about your potential play these two experts both agree on one of them. Correct. Right. Correct. That's that's that's a tease there. I'll tell you this Oklahoma state, Texas, if Oklahoma state he likes Oklahoma state, plus three and a half does Philippa this big twelve thing gets flipped on his head a little bit if Oklahoma state win game because I don't know like, you know, Oklahoma is still a work in progress. We think they're probably still the I know they lost Texas. The defense looked a lot better. But TCU offensively. It's been a little bit of a mess, but Ruffin McNeill defense last week, certainly showed some. Of improvement. They gave up what? Well under three hundred yards of offense. Yes. TCU scored some points. One was a ninety nine yard kickoff return. There was a big play in the passing game. They the defense turn Oklahoma over gave them a short field. But offensively TCU didn't go for four or five hundred yards. Like, we have seen teams do against Oklahoma, but outside of them. And I think we're learning more about him still Texas with the win over. Oh, you sits in great shape. But it's certainly not a foregone conclusion that they're gonna win tonight and Stillwater they they've got plenty of head of them that could throw real wrench into the big twelve which is why they are not giving a huge chances at conference, especially outside. Oh, you get into the playoff exactly of West Virginia who will Greer coming up next week Dory? Then at Lubbock against Texas Tech, red raiders, and they get Matt Campbell cyclones. There's tricky games in there for Texas. And they're young team. They say is not coming into this game healthy. But he's a as we say a gritty competitor. You have a lot of things off LSU in Alabama were all gearing up Alabama LSU next week. Both teams off this. Week Ohio State Michigan both off Penn State's at the big house next week against Michigan. So some of the top teams sitting back watching and preparing for next week's games by week this week in college football. Absolutely all right up next our hot list our personal sports bucket list.
