The Association of Winning With Happiness
"Why else did they drop valedictorians in so many schools? Because it'll make the non valedictorian unhappy. I told you fools teach your children as a general rule. Truly foolish foolish human beings. People devoid of wisdom. I wasn't valedictorian of my high school class. So what? So what? It's one of the happier kids in my high school class. I was even president of the high school class. So yeah, that sense I won. Meant more to me to be elected by my peers than it would have been a valedictorian. But it doesn't matter. If I were in president of the class, wouldn't have mattered. The association of winning with happiness, my kid has to get into the best possible college. So then the kid gets an acceptance into some Ivy League school and the kid is so happy. So I'm curious, here's an interesting question. I don't know the answer, but it's an interesting question. Is the average graduate of an Ivy League school Harvard Yale Princeton or non Ivy League Stanford Berkeley, ten years later, 30 years later, are they on average happier than those who went to Michigan state? Now, by the way, I know
Man Killed During Traffic Stop in Grand Rapids, MI
"Right now, is a real mess. And it centers around the police shooting of a 26 year old named Patrick la loya. Here's a report on what's happening in Grand Rapids, Michigan, from WDIV, local four in Michigan. Another African American man has died as a result of the use of lethal force with the interaction of law enforcement. 9 days after Patrick Leo was shot and killed during a traffic stop, Grand Rapids police releasing the video showing the deadly confrontation. 20 minutes of video, some of it too graphic to show. It's a protesters gathering outside the Grand Rapids police department tonight calling for the officer who shot and killed 26 year old Patrick Leigh oya to be charged in his death. The entire case is been turned over to Michigan state police. Our Martin McDonald is live downtown tonight Mara. Law enforcement veterans say the investigation is going to take a while. That's right, Kimberly and here's why, because there are multiple videos from multiple angles of what happened that morning. There are multiple witnesses and then you add on top of that, the confrontation between these two men before that fatal shot was fired. There's a lot to unpack here. It's just after 8 a.m. on April 4th when the 7 year veteran of the Grand Rapids police department to the GRP is not identifying, pulls Patrick Leo ya over for having the wrong plate on the vehicle. Stay in the car. Leo, a Congolese immigrant exits the car and doesn't follow the officer's orders to stay in the car. Liu ya tries to run, a chase and struggle go on for two minutes. There is no backup. Police say Liu ya has his hands on the officer's taser in the last frames of video you see the officer on top of Leo, he pulls his firearm and shoots Liu ya once in the back of the head, killing him.

Julie Kelly: The Jury Saw Through DOJ & FBI's Entrapment
"You have people on both sides who really saw what happened with the spygate case the collusion case the failure to really do much of anything about antifa and BLM And yet this focused hyper attention on January 6th and candidly people some people just walked in open doors And it just seems like they're credibility is so bad that I don't know how we go forward as a constitutional republic without a major house cleaning because how do you bring a case now I mean juries just don't trust them This January does excuse me the Michigan case was just a total repudiation of their credibility in court It was stunning Dan if you think now consider first the defense attorneys had both hands tied behind their back to judge who did a very good job nonetheless sided with the government on numerous occasions to prevent the jury from seeing hundreds of communications between the FBI and their informants that would show this entrapment If the government threatened several defense witnesses with extra charges so they ended up pleading the 5th the DoJ had everything going for it in this jury still saw right through this entrapment case because the entire defense argument rested on FBI entrapment and that is what this jury concluded The other thing to remember in Michigan is that the local news about what happened with Larry Nassar the Michigan state gymnastics coach who got away for years of molesting sexually assaulting young girls and women top U.S. Olympic gymnasts and the FBI including the Detroit field office completely dust this case So they already had not just national the FBI national lack of credibility but certainly this was a local issue in the state of Michigan And I wonder how much that contributed to the jury's view Of this corrupt and competent agency
How Did Morgan Zegers Become the Anti-Communist She Is Today?
"How does a 25 year old born in America end up being as anti communist? Some who have listened have heard your story before, but it was a long time ago. So share with us your incredible college story that kind of lit the fuse. Yeah, so I went to American university in Washington D.C. and my roommate was a communist with a poster of Mao Zedong, Lenin Stalin, Karl Marx and Fidel Castro on her wall. And as she has these mass murderers and dictators on the wall, she was telling me that her ideas, the similar ideas to the men on the poster, they were going to end poverty in America and uplift the working class and bring progress in all the usual talking points, and something in my brain just didn't compute and not only that, I mean, I knew that that didn't add up. But I just didn't know what to say to her. And so that really sent me on a mission to help young people in America that understand at the core that, you know, these guys were really bad mass murderers and dictators, but we just don't know what to say to our peers that are falling for it. I want to help equip them with the truth and equip them with the way to have a conversation that could change a heart and mind, because what really inspires me, there's this Michigan state university study that said the best way to change a young person's opinion with an imposing viewpoint is actually hearing it from a peer, not from a parent or a professor. So we really like to use that concept of peer rationale to reach as many young people as possible.

Grenada. Yeah, it was like some random place, right? Yeah, I was supposed to leave, but the reason I ultimately chose to stay in fight is because even in 2018, I saw what was happening with the progressive left. I saw what organizations like justice for Democrats were doing in running candidates. And I realized that identity politics is indeed alive and well on the left and I was kind of born with a certain amount of assets that I could use to fight that.

Yes, and I think he's setting the standard, obviously there's a lot of people that I think claim to be conservative. And then our working against him. And so I think desantis is budget. He's been phenomenal. Yes. So the district could be anywhere between a lean deed to a lean R we don't know yet, right? Correct, but if it's the desantis maps, it's going to be an R plus

I will say that about the game. It wasn't well played, but the intensity level and what was on the line for first place in the conference. Give a lot of credit to Illinois, because I don't think that they get mentioned in the maybe in the not the upper Echelon of the arenas. They do with that. But to get put in the same conversations Purdue Indiana, Michigan state, and even after a Rutgers in there, from that place is going in is a freaking hornet's nest. It was that good. It was that could have been after. Yeah, and I was sitting right in front of the students section and they are awesome. I mean, awesome. In a way that, again, student sections are awesome, right? Calling izzo, I think a little elf over and over and over and stand up Tom. I don't know. Listen, I missed that. I missed that the last year or so. Like hearing those absolute disgraceful takes by the students throwing it everybody in anybody. Illinois, I almost turned around, rob. If I hadn't been three hours into a two and a quarter hour drive, I might have turned around when I found out that Kofi and kerbel weren't playing. I'm honestly, I might have stayed if I found that out. Four hours earlier, I'm gonna go back to my room and play pool while watching the game. Instead, I finished out the drive and I'm like, they're gonna get their ass kicked tonight. See, I didn't think they were. I think they were. Because of the way they played at Maryland. I knew Brad was going to have those dudes defending with their hair on fire. He lit those dudes up. They got torched by Marilyn's guards. They took 60% of their shots were threes. They do like 33s and 25 twos at Maryland. They were chuck and shots. Yep. I knew he was going to it was going to be competitive. And I just didn't think Michigan state was explosive enough of a scoring team to get away from him. And honestly, I love Trump Frank. That dude is a gamer. He does. He is, he can score. He can pass. He runs the show. He defends. He's been there forever. He just he totally gets what Brad wants from him. And he plays his role perfectly, first half he was. He was great. I just think that they still have really good guards around the plumber can play. I think Jacob grandison is a elite role player, Luke goody came in and gave them good minutes off the bench. She's going to be a player, bob is for Donald has done some good things. He can pass, he can rebound, and he made three of his four shots..

"But when you look at wake pain, they have a dynamic offense led by Sam Hartman Clemson has a dynamic defense that has been outstanding all season long shown a little bit of vulnerability when they took on a team like Pittsburgh, but in their own building with everything to play for. I think this matchup should be worth its weight in gold at noon eastern. This is good on good, right? Hartman versus Clemson's defense. Hartman, I believe 7th in total EPA for quarterbacks Clemson still a top 5 defense in EPA per play allowed and productive drives allowed. It's a fun matchup. Harmon's going off his worst game of the season, though. One of the weirder games you'll see from a quarterback in offensive perspective. Wake only had a 39% success rate against NC state Hartman completed less than 43% of his passes. Wakes ground game, negative EPA per Russia, and somehow they still hung 45 on the best defense they've placed played this season. And I know NC states been dealing with some defensive injuries, but still a good unit. It was just one of the more bizarre games by the box score wake certainly lost. Clemson is a little bit of a different animal. And I know they've also dealt with their fair share of defensive injuries, a couple of guys out. In the front 7, we know they're down offensively, but defensively still elite venables. If you've listened to his presser this week, he knows what he's up against. This is the type of matchup where he's been like, hey, we need to be disciplined down to down, and we just need to execute. And he basically said the same thing that we've been saying about wakes offense in that it's not overly complex. Sure, there's some intricate stuff with their blocking schemes where they'll pull a tackle up the middle and for the most part, it's an RPO system. They hold the mesh point for as long as possible to put your defense in conflict. The vast majority of the place, they are designed to look the same. Wake's just really good executing it. A lot of veteran guys, a lot of smart kids, right? That are executing this offense. Now, the matchup last season, I know it's different. Wakes scored only three non garbage time points. And venables kind of hinted that everything looks the same as it did last year, just the guys are older. They execute better and I quote Hartman's a baller. So let's see what Clemson comes up with here. They haven't created the most havoc with their front 7 like they have in years past. They're not getting their typical push up front, but Clemson's still very good at the line of scrimmage. They still have to win that battle. 17th in line yards. They really still hold up well. Even though their horses are brise, who's out. It's a big loss, obviously, but he's been out for a while. They've adapted the life without them. If you have a good defensive line, you can impact wake's office, right? Because they hold the ball so long, that mesh point, you can get your hands up, tip a bunch of passes, drive that O line back. If Clemson can stop the run with 5, and you get disciplined play out of your linebackers and keep an eye on that Clemson doesn't have the best coverage linebackers. But if you can get those two things, it's going to be tough for weeks offense. It's also worth mentioning here and you kind of hinted at this is the schedule dichotomy. Wake force played one defensive line in the top 40 in line yards. Clemson's played three offenses inside Bill Connolly's top 25 SMP plus. So there is this massive scheduling difference here. And right now, this game probably isn't for me. But we talk all the time about lines painting pictures and telling stories. You have a three loss Clemson team that nobody seems to want. Couldn't cover. It's lowly Connecticut. Wake force has this great story. Even though they lost one game, still tenth in the college football playoff race. Clemson's a four and a half point favorite. And I don't even need to look dot. Casual betters are going to be running over men women and children to get wake as a dog here. But you start to have these market inefficiencies. And I understand Clemson is vastly different than it was last year. Not quite as good defensively, and obviously an abomination on offense. But clumps is a 35 point favorite at weight last year. And now you have a venue flip. Where Clemson's at home and they're just a four point favorite this year. My gut says this line kind of trickles up a little bit. We'll see if the public evens that out. And oddsmakers have to adjust for all the public money on the dog. But just an interesting game where the line certainly tells a lot. I've done power ratings, not nearly as extensively as some folks in the industry or as long. I've made adjustments for quarterback downgrades and cluster injuries, but I'm not sure I've ever made a 39 point adjustment from Trevor Lawrence handing the baton to DJ uncle ale, although to your point, anyone who goes 21 to 44 with a 48% completion rate and a season high 240 yards passing against Yukon, probably not exactly a ringing endorsement. The other thing it appears that Justin Ross is going to have surgery on his foot, Clemson hadn't made any official determinations from what I'd read, but an offense had struggled now loses its top playmaker 46 catches 514 yards out of the mix. But according to davo this week, it does appear that will shipley and Kobe pace will be back in the fold for this one. So just things to keep in mind as you look to try and handicap. I know a lot of our listeners will be forced to make a pick on this game for various office pools and such. If you want you yeah, no, no, no, if you want to go contrarian, I think, to your point, I mean, you may be able to make up some ground on your competition by laying the points of the climate and if you want to think outside the box a bit. Oh, yeah. If you're in contest pools and you're trying to make up ground, sometimes it becomes not necessarily about the game in and of itself. But the way you need to navigate contests, there is some strategy involved other than like hey, let's just pick the winner and being able to make up ground on sides that you would at least lean to. And if you lean to Clemson knowing the entire pool, probably be on. Wake forest, that certainly the better way to navigate things than just grabbing a stale number on another game the rest of the contest is probably going to also have where you're not able to make up ground that way. Yep, no doubt about it, especially as you get into the latter stages of some of those pools out there as we know people like to get skin in the game a variety of ways and it's not just always betting into the dynamic markets available to you at FanDuel sportsbook. All right, to the SEC pain, Arkansas, Alabama, I believe this is the SEC game of the week on CBS, and it's the Alabama crimson tide more than a three touchdown favorite 21 and a half to going number at FanDuel right now. Total in the game, 58 and a half. The last win in this series for Arkansas came way back in 2006, the year before Nick Saban arrived to Tuscaloosa to change the fates of the pride program there. Bam has scored at least 40 points in each of the last 5 meetings versus Arkansas, the last two meetings have been a combined score of 100 points for Alabama to ten for the razorbacks, Arkansas is.

You lose viral, all of a sudden, we're asking can die with his size and stature and composition being every down running back. He hasn't needed to be. The freshman, Byron cardwell, he has been exactly what the ducks need. He was fantastic last week. If you look, though, in this matchup, I think it's interesting. If you can get cardwell going right, give them 9 to 12 touches. That's probably a sign that organs are able to run the ball here. Then you can get die as the explosive back, but you can get them out of the backfield. We saw him catch touchdown pass when wazo elected a blitz linebackers, same situation here. If you know Utah is stuffing the box and they have linebackers that want to play downhill, getting die out of the backfield in past situations with the RPO on early downs might be a nice little wrinkle. It's an easier pass for Brown. And I don't necessarily like we've been talking about running back runs forever, but where they're the best is on early downs. It's not third and 6 dumping it off and hoping that you're running back and make someone miss an open space. But you get that RPO game going and Utah being very aggressive with that loading the box, then all of a sudden you get die out of the backfield. So I think that will be something to watch for here. Is if Oregon can get some easy throws in early downs four die and Anthony Brown. But ultimately, this comes down to. Can Oregon get stopped here or rather, can you target stops on early downs and then make Anthony Brown beach? You just have to make him a thrower. He's not very good. Even if you look Todd at whether it was last week or some of the full season metrics, when he throws with RPOs or play action, this is a positive EPA offense. Any other type of throw. It is a bottom barrel type passing offense. So in that third and 5 situations, not just because Anthony Brown is in a good passer. It really is. But suddenly the RPO passing doesn't necessarily work. You're not going to get linebackers to bite on an RPO on third date. They know the run is not coming at that point. So that's really where you have to have organs offense operate. The other injury to keep tabs on too, it's not going to get potentially easier for Oregon to throw the ball downfield. Johnny Johnson was forced out of the Washington state game with an unspecified lower leg injury, reading some of Mario's quotes and watching an interview with Joe moorhead. They've been pretty coy about that and it's not a team as you kind of alluded to that has a lot of depth or game breakers at the receiver position. So if your Utah and you really only have to eliminate a neutralized Devin Williams, it makes it that much easier to commit an extra guy to the box and playing the run. And I'll tell Kyle winning him something I'm sure he already knows. Go back and watch the tape of what Cal did defensively with Justin Wilcox to make life difficult for Anthony Brown. Oregon had to work for absolutely everything and is the field condenses and you can play more guys in the box. I really believe a win for Utah this week. Let Oregon move the ball between the 20s, forced them to settle for field goals and lean on your offense because honestly, pain when you look at Utah, they've gone away from their DNA. We've grown accustomed to Utah being three yards in a cloud of dust when it comes to offense, leaning on a stingy defense and trying to win slugfest, but offensively, cam rising has given this team a shot in the arm. He's only been sacked three times and 233 dropbacks. So far this season, which is extremely important when you deal with a pass rush led by kayvon thibodeaux, and you look at how he's played at home against UCLA and Arizona state, a QBR of 85 and 92 in those games, 38 of 60, but they've gotten enough from tavian Thomas and TJ pledger in the ground game to lead me to believe that Oregon's defense should be put on notice. Utah's offense is going to challenge them all over the field. That often has been on fire lately. And since cam rising took over the starting job, the use have the most efficient passing attack in the PAC 12. And the thing Utah has going for it offensively is they can be multiple. You couple that efficient passing attack with a hammer like TV on Thomas, and now it becomes difficult to game plan and pick and choose where you want to allocate your defenders. Thomas was held out for precautionary reasons against Arizona, wittingham claims he won some rested for Oregon. Let's keep an eye on the status of that situation. That shit almost backfired on us. Yes, I would, I would tend to believe him there. You also have your center, Paul malley and your guard Nick Ford, whittingham was kind of mom on those two guys. They got banged up in the Arizona game, so let's again keep an eye on those two guys along the offensive line for Utah. The other two backs you mentioned pleasure, Bernard. They can really contribute, not just on the ground, but as pass catchers as well, Bernard, I think went three for 60 last week. Organs given up a ton of productive drives. They've struggled to get off the field on third and fourth down. Now organs done a very good job limiting explosives. But you can still push them around in the trenches outside the top 50 in both line yards and stuff right. So tavy on Thomas should be effective here if he goes. I want to believe voting him, I think the signs are positive there that he is going to play. You added that added dimension with cam rising through the air. So it's just a very balanced attack right now. They're extremely difficult to stop. The kind of snafu they had at Oregon state, there was a kind of fluke eNOS with that and some blocked punts and I don't know. Some situational football that didn't really go over well for the offense. But overall, since camera rising taken over, this is just a completely different offense. We'll have to see how Oregon holds up in coverage against Utah's backs and tight ends, like sewell is a liability and coverage. Hill is kind of that hybrid safety linebacker for organization. He's also great at out very poorly in coverage. Oregon's graded out one of the worst P 5 tackling defenses. And I've said this for a while now. Sometimes these teams you just get these elite pieces. And the market sometimes and the perception really just is completely different from reality. So as good as cave on thibodeau is and because of the quarterback class is so weak, it's very possible. He's the number one pick in the draft coming up. But kevon thibodeau is going to get doubled. He's going to get chipped organ despite having him 121st in the country and passing down stack rate. So even when the ducks get opponents and known passing situations, they don't get after the quarterback overly well. So cam rising should have time here. The other thing that's interesting is as well as kayvon thibodeau is playing right now. And he's certainly trending much better than where he started and obviously was dealing with some injuries and whatnot. But he's gotten healthier. The defense overall has gotten a little bit healthier and all we've heard from dux fans recently is the unit is really improving. I think it has some you hold Washington state to 43% success, Washington and a monsoon 28% success in Colorado to 46% success. You would expect a defense with this kind of talent to improve by week ten with a new defensive coordinator. You should be better in week ten than in week one learning a new system with a new D.C.. But this improvement has come against a Washington state's offense, which is outside the top 60 and EPA per play, Colorado's barely inside the top 100 in the same category. And then you have our beloved Washington huskies Todd and you're smarter than me. You finished college. If you can figure out this math equation, horrific offense, plus horrific weather conditions equals what kind of offensive performance for Washington? Subpar to say the least. I mean, yes, I think we're seeing some improvement. But I don't want to just be like, oh my God, organs figured it out defensively. Obviously, a ton of respect for Tim to Ritter, the guy was cash in a tickets right and left the cow because of his defense. And he's got more talent to work with here..

"Seconds and to put that in perspective. That goes from a below average time to throw the ball to one of the fastest in the country. And so they didn't take those deep shots. They were comfortable kind of picking 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 yards a pop, letting the receivers operate. And so now when Sparta's attempting to kind of game plan for Ohio State's offense, what are they hiring for? The deeper passing offense Stroud holds it and pushed it downfield or the quick pass attack. Either way, Ohio State is going to have success through the air here. And for me, this is one of the larger mismatches in a big game this week. Michigan state does not do a great job getting pressure up front. So it can leave sport exposed on the outside. Sparty kind of plays off coverage. They're 58th in PFF's coverage grade. They like to play, they don't necessarily have the horses to play man and get in your face. They are susceptible to the quick pass that we saw Ohio State execute last week against perdue. You know, I don't see a ton of talent in the back. Now you get an Ohio State offense, and you're looking at this even though they had that little two game struggle. It's a freshman quarterback. You're going to go through some lulls in his first season. But there's still number one in the country and passing success rate. Going up against the defense outside the top 60 in both passing success rate and EPA per pass loud. And the kicker, Sparta's played a really weak schedule of passing offenses. I mean, you have Indiana on the schedule, Rutgers, northwestern, all are outside the top 100 and EPA per pass. You faced a less than 100% Derek king and he went for 388 yards perdue, who's a top 30 in EPA per passion, lost to by double digits 8, O'Connell probably had his best game as a college quarterback when you consider the circumstance. He posted a positive 0.72 EPA per pass in that upset. Western Kentucky. The other passing offense with the pulse on the schedule home 31 points in a 53% success rate overall in that game. So any of the better passing offenses that face this year has done quite well. You also have to monitor some injuries for Michigan state. Charles Brantley who moved into the starting corner roll missed the Maryland game a great outs party's best cover corner. Simeon borrow the big fell on the interior line for sparty far and away their best interior alignment did not play at Maryland, all signs here. Are pointing to Ohio State doing what they want on offense. I look at this number Todd. And tells you all you need to know, it does and we said that in the Penn State game. And you kept me off Ohio State there because you're like, hey, something Penn State's doing is really giving them success against Ohio State the last few years and you were spot on there. But this is a little bit different. Not only is the line a touch short because this perception of Michigan state, but the matchup isn't very good either. I know Mel Tucker doesn't want to get into a shootout, but it feels like he's going to need a shoot out to stay within this. He's going to need a bad performance from Ohio State's defense to stay within this number because they're not going to get stops defensively. And so when I look at this line of 19 immediately, I'm looking at our number and we're at like 21.2, which is just the core number. It doesn't factor in the good matchup. It doesn't factor in some of the injuries that we've mentioned so you could probably tick it up a couple more notches than that. And listen, I think the story of party has been awesome this year. And I like Mel Tucker, great recruiter. And I didn't want to say anything at the time because I prefer not getting crushed on social media from fans and biased homers. But when the playoff committee had Michigan state at three, we have them power rated just barely inside the top 25. So the reality in the perception of what Michigan state is to the outside world is just vastly different than what pro betters think of them. A couple other things too, but before we close the book on this game, when you look at Ohio State last week, I know Purdue is a very public underdog. If I hear the term spoiler makers from any of our colleagues again, I'm going to lose my mind because as soon as a cliche catches on like that, you know what team's going to get boat raced. 59 31 on the scoreboard wasn't nearly as indicative as how dominant Ohio State was. And that performance against perdue. And you talked about all the Michigan state past defense concerns and numbers. All we have to do is look at the schedule of opponents that Michigan has played. Kate McNamara through for almost 400 yards against Michigan state. Kate McNamara hasn't thrown for more than 255 yards this season against anybody, and he was able to move the ball with ease against this Michigan state secondary. I think Ryan day will be ready to go, and you're gonna see Ohio State put on an absolute show. So buyer beware should you want to make you enjoy the same handler there? You know, I mean, JJ McCarthy gets more reps than I do. So everyone's just throwing Kate McNamara under the bus this year. Kate's going out there..

"That right there is something that you could get deported naked to the Taliban for castrated. This is the kind of this is the kind of guy I am. I am a supportive partner in all of this. And since the wedding is in Nevada, it fit in the parameters of our fall wedding rules that I've laid out well ahead of time that unless you're in the wedding party or a wedding is local. I do not travel for fall weddings. Given the responsibilities of our job. So I mean, you have to little bit of give it to you. You're gonna be doing a bunch. Oh, don't remind me. Don't remind me about that. So I'm hoping that everybody decides to get married out of town. She's not in weddings and they're all in the fall so I don't have to travel. There you go. All right, for combination, a little weekend home alone. Exactly. Before we get into some of the games, college football playoff, no surprise. Nothing changed yesterday. All right, there we go. We're officially covered the college football playoff. We're in a good spot of one and a half to have a debate about if Alabama loses close to Georgia if they're still in the top four. Let's save that for the Talking Heads on television. All right, we'll start with a team that I think a lot of people are surprised. They find themselves 7th fine a team that they beat who sits in the number 6 spot. That, of course, being the Michigan state Spartans, but the reality of it is no one cares what Michigan state has done if you don't win this weekend. Your playoff hopes and dreams are completely dashed and they have an uphill battle. As a 19 and a half point underdog going into Columbus to take on the Ohio State buckeyes, total in this game, pain sits a 67 and a half. When you look at the buckeyes, they lead the nation in scoring at more than 46 points per game, more than 48 points per game at home, which is 5th in the nation. Ohio State has won 5 straight in this series with the last four all coming by 20 plus points. And I think you and I both identified a very interesting quote from Michigan state's head coach Mel Tucker, that probably provides the perfect jumping off point as we break down the X's and O's. So he was in his pressure yesterday. And obviously, the background of Mel Tucker is defense. But he basically said he hates the idea of a shootout and he's not in the shootout business and when he hears that word, it makes him one of vomit. When you hear him say things like that right off the bat, it tells me if Mel Tucker had his way, he wants to slow this game down. Play keep away on offense, feed Kenneth walker, 35 plus times and then rely on Peyton thorn to make some timely throws. Let's see if that's how it shakes out. We know Ohio State's defense has had some issues. The front 7 is obviously really, really talented, but they're not overly experienced and you're seeing that. For the first time in multiple years, you can push the buckeyes front around a little bit. They're outside the top 40 and line yards. Only stuffed 17% of runs that's outside the top 75. Over 40% of runs of great successful against the buckeyes that's outside the top 50. So if Michigan state's offensive line shows well here. There's certainly a path for some relative offensive success first party, I would say. And once you get that ground game going, you have to think about the pieces that Ohio states replacing year over year. It's the linebackers. They went from one of the most experienced linebacker groups to one of the most inexperienced. Ohio states really sensitive to play action. And you look at Peyton thorn's makeup as a passer, 38% play action rate. It's far and away the most comfortable he is when he's throwing one 40 passer rating 12.2 yards per pass attempt with play action. Any other throw that Thor has made this season without play action, passer rating dips to 84 yards per pass attempt decreases by more than 5 yards. We know Ohio State secondary is really been a question mark for two seasons. Now they're still vulnerable 61st in EPA per pass allowed. You can make some plays on them through the air. But to execute this plan where it's slow, slow, slow with walker on the ground and then the critical third down conversion through the air or the explosive over the top off play action. You need the offense of line to show out. And smarties offensive line I would say is solid, not great. They are down, they're starting guard. Matt carsick out for the year, left tackle, Jarrett horse, got injured in the practice leading up to Purdue, hasn't played the last two games. So let's monitor that. But you basically have an above average O line potentially playing without two starters against the most talent they've seen up front. That might not go as well as we think. That game plan of being able to just mull Ohio State might not work if you're down two guys. We know Jalen naylor, Sparta's deep threat hasn't played since the Michigan game with the hand injury. So can someone else other than read step up and be the explosive guide downfield when thorn inevitably throws with play action if naylor can't go here? So some of the key parts to executing this plan of attack Todd are either not going to be there or not close to a 100%. Yeah, what's the line? Everybody has a game plan until they get hit in the face. I think for Michigan state, as long as they can stay in a neutral state, they're able to keep Kenneth walker very much in the mix. We know these are going to be two of the Heisman frontrunners on full display. Of course, the team that comes out victorious or puts up a better stat line may seize control of that particular race. And the reason is because when you look at Ohio State on the other side of the ball, they're going to have a massive advantage pain, and that is in their passing attack against this Michigan state secondary. So when you look at CJ Stroud, 17 touchdowns to just two picks over his last 5 games, he's had four 300 yard games during that span, two 400 yard performances. And I think what's crazy about Ohio State, when you look at this team, gera Wilson and crystal lavey grab all the headlines. This tandem is as good as any in college football, then you add in Jackson Smith and I don't even know how to pronounce his last name, so I'm not going to try. Who leads the team with 59 catches for over a thousand yards and 5 touchdowns. Welcome then the Michigan state secondary which just happens to be a worse than the conference in one of the worst and the power of 5. If you're Ryan Dan company, I mean, should this be as simple as take deep shot after deep shot after deep shot and trying to score from no matter where you are in the field every single time you're snapping the ball offensively? So there were some rumblings that both Penn State and Nebraska's defenses were calling out Ohio State plays before they were ever ran. Even it was wild to see. In my mind, if players and coaches are insinuating that, and if you read some of the clippings and pressors, that's kind of what's being indicated. And then you can confirm it with data where Ohio State has their worst two offensive performances in both success rate and EPA per play on the entire season. It's extremely probable defense has had a good idea of what was coming. Now last week against a, I would say, damn good Purdue defense. Ohio State was successful in 59% of their snaps. A positive 0.75 EPA per play, which is just a ridiculous number. Touchdowns on the first 6 drives. Ohio State scored on every first half possession and then added another touchdown on the opening drive of the second half. Ryan day changed up what they had been doing. And the goal was to get the ball out of CJ Stroud's hands quicker. Let the most talented receiver group operate with the ball after the catch. So Stroud's release time on average 2.1 seconds prior to last week, Shroud's average release time was nearly 2.8.

"You as soon as today. Pain, another week of college football has come and passed our listeners who grabbed the best of the number with the Minnesota golden gophers. We're treated to quite the sweat in the final two minutes last Saturday at Kenneth stadium. Obviously important to get the best of the number and that's why I had to beat you to the 6. Son of a son of a bitch. Son of a bitch. Now thankfully I was able to get some 6 through back channeling. So I was okay there. Yes. Yes, you almost slipped there back training. That was available all the way until Friday evening. You could have gotten 5 and a half a couple places, obviously. It's always important. Great at the line we give it out on Wednesday. It's always a widely available line that we give out on a Wednesday. And I'm sure some people navigated their morning slate and then listened to the podcast and said, hey, you know, I'll take four, that is unfortunate, right? Minnesota should have won the game outright at 41 minutes of possession out gained Iowa by a 123 yards, gave up an explosive here or there, but otherwise dominated that game and wasn't fond of PJ flack, right? I mean kicking field goals from the one yard line, being able to run right down Iowa's throats and kicking field goal before the break and slowing it down rather than with 45 50 seconds left on third and short, pick up the first down. Clock stops. Take a shot at the end zone at that point once the clock stopped. Once you pick up the first down, clock it and then take a shot at the end zone. Sitting there watching third and one, and him just drained the last 40 seconds to call timeout and kick a field goal. I mean, PJ flock was terrible. And Minnesota should have won that game. And then you get the unfortunate break at the end where we are all rooting. It's crazy how this changes as sports betters. We're sitting there with 5 and a half and 6 in our back pocket. And Minnesota's touchdown down two, they're going for two. We're all of a sudden change our rooting interest. We don't want him to make the two point conversion and go into overtime and somehow get screwed that way. But then you know you have the situation where you take a sack and it's fourth and 17 from your own two yard line. And you're like, oh, here we go. But Iowa didn't really seem intent on trying to score. It was like this half kneel slash QB sneak on first down. You're like, okay, we're going to be pretty good. We're going to hold to a field goal here. We got out of Dodge, but should have won that game out right if it wasn't for PJ fleck. Incredible. I mean, you talk about teams that are agro aggressive and wanting to go out there and take chances. We know Minnesota hasn't really had their big win in the Floyd rose Dale against the Iowa. They finally get the lead going into the break. They give up that momentum score right out of the half and here you are the hawkeyes hang on for dear life. I can't imagine no pain, how many boobs would have been out for Kirk ference? If his decision to kick the field goal, late in that game to go up 5, ends up coming back to haunt them if Tanner Morgan throws a Hail Mary or something ridiculous happens in the final 35 40 seconds. Yeah, that would have been interesting. Unfortunately, we also got a bad performance from Tanner Morgan, despite bell being back. That was one of the things that we loved seeing was hey, Altman bell's back, the horse and certainly he was integral in the late touchdown. But you mentioned having a lead at halftime there. So Minnesota goes in to the break. Has the lead by three. They get a stop, I believe. And then you are driving and you have like third and 7 from right outside the green zone tenor Morgan just air males a wide open receiver. So those are the little things sometimes that you'll notice within a game that can just absolutely change the complexion. So instead of up three completing the third and 7 to a wide open receiver and going and getting points and potentially being up ten, you decide to punt after you don't pick up the layup first down and then one play later you're down four. After the massive explosive. So there's always some swingy things, especially in college football and your hope is that like 1819, 20 year olds can rebound. Sometimes that doesn't always happen. No, it doesn't but alas, we're able to get the cover there. Like we said, we got our entertainment value. I do appreciate your play by play as I was driving to a wedding. So for the first Saturday, all season long, I wasn't parked in a front of a TV from start to finish, tried to convince the fiance that hey, look, we're waiting for an update from pain. We can't go into the reception yet because I don't want to be that guy busting out his cell phone. You provided me good news and at least set the tone for the evening to say the least. I received a text from the field. Yes. That's I was gonna say, you're on a first name basis, the relationship there is great and I know she has no qualms whatsoever about sending you notes or busting my balls in a very public form. So glad that really, I heard that you are texted me and said that you were mister Hollywood at this. Oh, this was actually a good story. This is a complete tangent. So we're there. And you know, I never know sometimes this podcast can be quick, but go ahead. Well, no, we'll just we'll just shorten up the games and we'll go more anecdotal stuff than anything else. It's always interesting, because you go into environment and it's not my friend. It's one of her oldest friends, so I have no idea if people are gonna be sports fans or anything else along those lines. And I know you keep a very low profile and I give you a ton of credit for it when you go out and about and you're distinct circles. And so I don't tell people typically what I do by any stretch. So people are talking and I'm sitting there on my hands as sports discussion starts to come up. They're talking about players. There's a lot of giants, fans there and everything else. And I can see her smirking the entire time, knowing that it's eating away at me, letting these people kind of banter back and forth. And so one of the guys at the table turns, he goes, you know, what do you do for a living? I go, wow, you know, I work in the sports industry. And then I see a kid on the other side of the table who's probably had about 37 shots of patron at that point. His eyes light up and he goes, oh my God, I know who you are, and I'm going oh, no, no. I don't want to do this. The kid for the next two and a half hours is nice as he was proceeded to ask me every question about the industry, ask about everybody I've worked with and follow me around for a puppy dog. So it was a little bit uncomfortable in that context, but it's good to know gambling has taken off. People listen to our podcast and watch a lot of the gambling content we put out there. So I'm dealing with the guy with a pretty large ego today. There's no ego because we know in this business, you're only as good as your last bet. And we still have a lot of work to do. Yes. That's the mindset. From the casual, guys, yes. Yes. There is no doubt about it. You flip coins, you go 15 and 5 that makes you better than someone who goes 12 consistently over a significant sample size. By the way, who has a wedding? This time of year. I mean, that is off limits. I don't know if I could still remain friends with someone who decided to have a wedding in November. That right there is something that you could get deported naked to the Taliban for castrated. This is the kind of this is the kind of guy I am. I am a.

"And EPA per pass allowed. LSU's offense, checks in top 15 in both those categories. The problem is and where the Spidey senses are kind of kicking in, and I think off the buy, Saban probably gets that cleaned up a little bit, especially after you give up two 50 plus yard touchdown bombs to Tennessee, and that's probably going to put an emphasis on that area of your defense during the buy. Chunk plays through the air have been a serious problem though. And again, I think it gets cleaned up a little bit, but it isn't going to be a quick fix. It isn't going to be something that isn't a vulnerability for them moving forward. Right now, Alabama. Along 53% of throes, ten plus yards downfield to be completed. That is just not good. Not good. Not good. 9% worse than last season. 20% worse than 2019. So that is certainly going to be an area defensive back's coach. Like Nick Saban is going to try to rectify during the buy for LSU. You probably have to look at how they're trending through the air without case on but not right. Obviously, max Johnson looked good in the shootout against Florida. Despite some turnovers. But the last time out against old miss, a defense that's outside the top 100 and passing defense max Johnson put up a negative passing EPA. So you do kind of have to wait out what the LSU pass attack is without Butte and I think that makes things a little bit different here. The second area where LSU has to be effective to have a chance is actually on the other side of the ball. And Todd, I think we did a really good job identifying Alabama's protection issues week one against Miami when Bryce young basically ran for his life and just was fantastic under pressure, but that was kind of the point in time where everyone was already anointing Alabama national champions and there wasn't any weakness, and then all of a sudden you start digging in numbers like Jesus. This offensive line, which lost a ton of guys to the draft and they had issues against Miami. And we weren't quite sure what Miami's defensive line was. We thought it would be substantially down. And so that was kind of a glaring weakness for us. And right now, that really hasn't changed all that much. It's gotten slightly better. Again, maybe out of the buy, you see another notch of improvement, but Bryce young's still being pressure on 35% of dropbacks. The other area where Amazon line is really struggled this season is against the blitz. Only navy and Akron are worse and pressure rate allowed versus the blitz. So donte Jones better figure out a way to scheme up some manufactured pressure and if he can get some guys home, force a turnover, make bray young, comfortable. Maybe. Maybe this doesn't become a complete whitewash, but I will say this. You mentioned the quotes coming out of the buy, think Alabama's gonna be a little bit more buttoned up. Season long numbers make this game 28 right on the button. If I look at our weighted numbers taught, it's closer to 34. It's never a great sign when Alabama has actually been discounted in the market and you can find nearly a touchdown's worth of wiggle room, looking over current form to try and advocate for a game or normally you'd want to come in and go out, well, I'll just use catching a bowl of points, they're gonna put an all hands on deck type effort together. I haven't seen that from max Johnson and he's not exactly a 100% either. So I'm not quite sure what LSU can do other than maybe go to church a couple times during the week and hope that there's a little bit of divine intervention that allows them to cover us for a touchdown pups. Yeah, and so when that is the key factor, I max Johnson being able to move the ball through the air and he's not a 100% and as we alluded to bhutte is out. Becomes a little bit more difficult. And so those are really the only two areas. That LSU might have an advantage in some blitzes and maybe creating some turnovers, turnovers, obviously, not predictable, but can certainly swing games as we saw last week with Arizona state having three in the first 11 minutes. So those are the kind of things that completely flip games on their head. And that's what it's going to take for LSU to stay within this number. Otherwise this is going to be a boat race. And I don't see Alabama necessarily letting their foot off the gas if there is that opportunity. Because again, they'll probably be able to run the ball here in this situation. Yeah, trying to figure out what this LSU program is going to look like. I mean, we say it week in week out and this will probably be the last time that we touched on LSU football this season. When you look at their upcoming schedule, but just two years removed from winning a national championship with arguably one of the most dominant teams that we've ever seen, play the sport highlighted by NFL caliber talent all over that roster to see how far the mighty have fallen. And we'll see what program builder ultimately comes in to try and resurrect what should be one of the elite organizations from top to bottom within the SEC west. I'm not quite sure who they are. Have you heard anything? I have not leaning. No, I have not heard any further updates there. I have not heard any inkling in terms of what direction USC wants to go in either. And it begs the question. I mean, you see clay halten who already found a new job at Georgia southern. You know, if you're LSU, if your USC, how quickly do you have to move and what candidates have you identified that least you can get a handshake agreement in place that as soon as the regular season's over inside of less than a month to try and accelerate that recruiting cycle because you know better than I do that this recruiting calendar of events and cycle doesn't really ever stop. So if you had a head coach there, you could really get a leg up on the competition. You know, three to four weeks before some of your other compatriots try to make a move. Oh, there's no doubt about that. And that's part of this new early recruiting period. Day and age of college football is you constantly are shuffling your coach like we've seen in Florida state and you're going to be behind the 8 ball and we saw a couple of talented kids come out and over the past week and say what you want about Ed or geron being a good X's and O's coach and hiring the right guys, which he's fallen short of, but knocked it out of the park in 2019 and that's why they're able to win the national championship. But he is beloved by players in their parents and we've seen kids over the last week. We've seen kids that were kind of leaning that way, choose another direction because coach O is gone, so you have to solidify who the coach is going to be. Come in, do some damage control. And I don't think it's necessarily a bad thing if you have that coach that's out there and kind of the handshake agreements already in place, but I have not heard any rumblings as to that kind of being potentially solidified behind the scenes. So it'll be interesting to see which direction they go. Where do you think kocho goes from here? Do you see a situation.

"You about the number, knowing that we've seen betting markets get significantly more sophisticated over the years, because when we started doing this, you know, ten or 15 years ago, there's no doubt that you would have had to pay a premium if you wanted to lay points in Michigan state on the heels of their big win against an in state rival, but here we are, no wiggle room whatsoever with Michigan state just a field goal favorite. It's very close to where I made the number. Now if I make a situational adjustment, I can make a case for perdue offering up some value, but you kind of talked about their game last weekend against Nebraska. It becomes a catch 22. Yes, you make the situational adjustment for Michigan state off of a massive win where they had to erase a 16 point deficit against an in state rival, but at the same time you also were a little bit concerned about perdue, who defied the mathematical probabilities and what the box score told you in their outright victory against Nebraska's more than a touchdown underdog. Yeah, and that's obviously the interesting juggling of this because when you go in and you're like, oh my God, perdue won outright on the road at Nebraska as a 7 and a half point underdog in that game took serious pro money on the favorite. Oh, I'm ready to upgrade those guys. And then all of a sudden you dig into the game. You're like, oh my God, that 7% win probability. It was Adrian Martinez turning the ball over. A bunch, you know, four interceptions. You could have just said it was Nebraska being Nebraska, and that would have made it a lot easier for our listeners to understand buddy. And one of those interceptions is pick 6. And you kind of look at the vibe of the game, right? Like, Purdue gets the momentum score out of the half, or before the break, and then you get Nebraska throwing the pick 6 kind of around midfield, which is a crucial drive at that point. So you had like all of the big plays also go against Nebraska combination with the interception. So I didn't upgrade Purdue off that win. Nebraska and then Michigan state I get it. You get down 30 to 14 at home and it's tough to upgrade team. But I liked the bounce back. We did upgrade Michigan state slightly. We made this game closer to four than three. So there you go. Tells you all you need to know when you're trying to identify situation spots, matchups and of course line value. The best bets oftentimes are where you can check the boxes for multiple categories, becomes a little bit more perilous when you try and read the market sometimes and you figure out a lot of the other extenuating circumstances. To the SEC, so you don't have to talk about more Big Ten football. Do you feel more comfortable going down south? Yes, that works. All right. Texas a and hem, the welcoming the auburn tigers and auburn tigers fresh off of back to back wins against SEC west opponents. A and M comes into this week's game off of buy in their own right four and a half point favorites at FanDuel sportsbook total on the game sits at 49 and a half. When you begin to look at what you're going to have here, auburn. Well, they haven't exactly played a and M you know, all that often in College Station when you look back over the short history of these two teams in the same league, but they've never lost in College Station this would be the third matchup as ranks teams, since the aggies joined the SEC. When we look at auburn, there were all sorts of questions before the season started. Were they making the right decision and bringing in a coach like Brian harsh scene who had never coached down south, we weren't quite sure how we was going to handle life outside the Pacific Northwest. I think through the first 8 games, auburn fans have to be extremely excited. He's gotten Bo next to play with himself. We're seeing a physically imposing ground game for stretches with tank bigsby and jackass hunter. But this pain seems to be a step up in class. When you're going up against arrested Aggie's defense that's been outstanding on all three levels, at least over the last couple of weeks, they've erase some of the concerns we had early on in the season with a loss against Arkansas, even a Los against Mississippi state. And here's a team trending in the right direction, mainly because they're getting a little bit more reliable quarterback play in the former Zach calzada. Yeah, looking at a and M's offense. Jimbo's a great coach. Let's just kind of start there. And obviously, you know, him and his agent Jimmy Sexton. Have the oil money by the balls and Jimbo is certainly needy and presses for more. Virtually every day. But he can recruit. He can coach. Sometimes he tries to be a little too sophisticated offensively and you hear him in his pressers kind of throw jabs at all the gimmick offenses going on in college football. But I think woody's done with Zack calzada has been really, really impressive. I mean, what I saw against Colorado regardless of the come from behind touchdown was a quarterback that wasn't very good. And the pocket really kind of looked like the moon to him. And he had And I think when you consider the opponent, anam is often really look good against Mexico. They struggled against Arkansas. Most of.

"Increased substantially. Metrically, I think perdue looks great against the past top 15 in passing EPA and passing success rate loud. But I don't see individually a really good cover corner on the roster, so schematically produce going to have to slow down Jaden Reed. I'm also a little worried with the passing offenses perdue is played. You're looking at UConn, Notre-Dame, Illinois, Iowa Wisconsin, 5 offenses with an average EPA per pass rank of a 107th, but I think if perdue can slow down walker and thorn kind of continues this downtrend Purdue can absolutely put a little scare into Sparta here. You know, when you look at this boiler steam, you're right, it's interesting because last weekend, clearly the final score misleading 28 23 a game they trailed going into the break. And took advantage of an opportunistic defense. We've seen the boiler struggle to handle physically imposing ground games already this season and losses against Minnesota and Wisconsin. For perdue, some of their success or if they're going to have some on the other side of the ball, obviously hinges on 8 O'Connell's ability to serve as a distributor more than anything else. We know that there are a ton of playmakers wearing black and gold, especially in the ground game now that they've lost one of their starting running backs, king daru more of a plotter than anything else. And I don't want to oversimplify the matchup when you look at Michigan state that has more questions in my opinion than answers on the defensive side of the ball. Will the Spartans have enough in their secondary to slow down the bell cow to speak for Purdue? And of course, David bell, the game breaking wide receiver. It's interesting because you know, we watched that game last week and we were kind of texting back and forth and we were on the phone as we watched, because we were doing some contest stuff. But the one thing that I noticed with why sporty secondary was a little susceptible to the past and Kate McNamara, I thought played fantastic. In horrible kind of crush is confidence. But you saw defense that was absolutely selling out to stop the run. And so it left them a little bit vulnerable in the back. And I don't know if Purdue has that ground game. To force them to be exposed in the back this week. And that's, I think the interesting kind of dichotomy week to week between the two offenses that they're going to play. Now, I think Aidan O'Connell, you mentioned him. He's the other ingredient for beating Michigan state and you don't know what you're going to get. Do you get the Iowa in Nebraska version of 8 O'Connell or the turnover machine against Wisconsin and Notre-Dame? That, I think, probably is the big question. I know Michigan state's defensive line isn't the most stout, but Peru doesn't really have a ground game to speak of. And the O line is been really poor. And that's as nice as you can put it. The O line a 124th in line yards, a 120th. An opportunity rate over 24% of produce runs have been stuffed at or behind the line of scrimmage. All set a 124th and rushing EPA. So you're going into this handicap saying any efficiency Purdue has on the ground is really a bonus. And you really have to project a one dimensional offense with a O'Connell just chucking. And you know, it's a decent passing offense. Produce been around the national average and throwing efficiency 51st and passing success rate 62nd, an EPA per pass. The secondary is kind of where sporty seems vulnerable on defense. But you mentioned David bell, the guy's an absolute horse, but it can't be just him, right? Defenses are keying on him. Michigan state obviously will too. He's been good enough to be the focal point of defenses and still beat them when the competition hasn't been great. Wisconsin basically removed him. But perdue needs guys like right and Sheffield to step up and there was an interesting contribution last week from Jackson anthrop, who is a 6th year guy. They basically used him at running back. They used him in the slot. They used him in the run game and on special teams he had 11 touches. So we'll see if that kind of continues this week. It'll be interesting to see if that versatility kind of helps with perdue's offense. The other key here is finishing drives. When you're one dimensional and space starts to shrink not being able to run, it becomes a problem. And that's where Sparta's defense has been outstanding this year. It's why they're undefeated, despite like the wind probability charts indicating they're more of like a two loss team at this point. Parties beatable in the middle part of the field, but they're 8th and points allowed per trip inside the 40 and their 5th in gold the goal touchdown rate allowed. So somehow Purdue when they drive it has to get touched down here to pull off this upset, put the metrics would indicate because they can't run it, they're probably not going to have great success once they get inside the red and green zones punching in for touchdowns. But we'll see that's why they play the games and parties obviously do for some regression in that area. But that's what it's going to take, right? You're going to need a day for made in O'Connell. You're going to need just enough ground punch and you're going to need to be able to defensively stop Kenneth walker. Line certainly says produce the side here though, right?.

"Nobody. If you look at some of their win probability stuff, right? Their current, and they're below a 6 win team. So I don't know what they're looking at that would make wake for schedule substantially more difficult than Cincinnati. I don't know. Very weird there. I'm hoping Cincinnati just for the sake of allowing a G 5 team. Because if a G 5 team can't get in there, like Cincinnati. What are we doing? Then what are we doing? You have a at this point I would think a name brand coach won that could potentially fill one of the large Big Ten vacancy jobs if they were to open. You have Desmond Ritter who I think is got a decent namesake. He's been there a long time. And you have two defenders. That are potentially first round banks. So I don't know what more Cincinnati would need to do. Obviously, are you going to blot some teams? You haven't looked good the last two weeks. But in terms of a G 5 program with cachet in both performance on the field, if they can't get in here, I don't really see a scenario where any G 5 is ever getting in. Yeah, I'm kind of right there with you, especially when you consider even what Cincinnati did last year. I mean, going toe to toe with George and of course, different circumstances in that bowl game. They showed that they had least raised their level of play. I know the rosters aren't the exact same. I'm not saying Cincinnati would hold up against Georgia or Alabama, but if you're not gonna give the little guy a seat at the table, I mean, may as well go to a group of 5 playoff completely separate from the college football playoff and fracture the FPS further because there's no doubt these teams aren't playing the same sport other than collecting paydays from some of the major media companies. Of course, as we've talked about, we'll see these numbers continue to move and fortunately for anybody that has strong opinions. You can bet all of these yes and no is available on FanDuel. Make sure when you go through, you try and figure out some of the numbers and where you can glean a little bit of value. As we talked about Georgia, and overwhelming favorite at one to 20 to get into the college football playoff, no other team higher than minus one 65, and that's also Alabama and Ohio State. What's interesting about Alabama minus one 65, if you believe the tide have a chance to get in, you're probably better off waiting to bet them on the money line in the SEC title game against the Georgia bulldog. So take advantage of those prices, use them. Manipulate the markets and put yourself in the best position to make a few bucks. Onto the games, my friend should we talk about some of the marquee mattress we highlighted or the lack thereof that we have on the docket this weekend? Yeah, let's do it. All right, let's go to West Lafayette where it is the aforementioned Michigan state Spartans installed as a modest road favorite laying three against the boilermakers of FanDuel sports. But total in this game sits at 54 it is up a touch from the open. This will be the first time Michigan state rules into a football game and 8 no since they made the college football playoff led by Connor cook, a game pain that you and I were in attendance for when Alabama absolutely obliterated them in Dallas. Michigan state's defense. Well, they rank last in the Big Ten in past defense and we'll be trying to stop a Purdue passing attack that ranks third in the conference and throwing a football. That's a matchup we'll get to in a moment. When you look at Purdue, three and two in home games versus ranked opponents under coach brahm that does include a win against then number two, Ohio State back in 2018, again the boilers won as a double digit underdog, 49 to 20. Pain when we begin to unpack what this Michigan state offense is, there's no doubt it's led by Kenneth walker. He was as good as advertised against Michigan, but I begin to wonder how much was what Michigan state did offensively versus poor run fills and pad linebacking play that we saw from the wolverines last weekend. It was not good. And again, we kind of outline that. I love Aidan Hutchinson. I just don't know what the rest of Michigan's defense was in metrically. They'd kind of pushed around in the trenches at times. When I look at this one, and I just kind of think about how Peyton Thorne's trending and played the last few games. Then obviously, how Kenneth walker's playing in it's at a Heisman level, which is stunning to me. You think about what wake forge could be with him. And then you have a situation with jaylen naylor leaving the Michigan game and not returning and then being seen on the sideline with his wrist and hand and fingers in a cast. All of that kind of creates a situation where produced focus has to be stopping Kenneth walker in the ground game. That's it. You're selling out to make sure the ground game stopped. Produce tackling has to be better. I remember watching the Wisconsin game a few weeks back and I was like, my gosh, they're just missing tackles left and right and I went back last night and looked at like ten miss tackles in that game. And that's important against Kenneth walker. He was an absolute animal, as you mentioned against Michigan. Obviously, 5 touchdowns, that's what everyone wants to talk about, but he averaged 7 yards after contact last week as he broke 13 tackles. A guy was like a human pinball. So that is the one key, not just stopping the run but being better tacklers for perdue. And I think it's an interesting defensive line. You have 5 of the top 6 guys returning, then they added two power 5 transfers to the D line. You have a big name player in George Karl. This, I think he's obviously a first round pick at this point. But I wouldn't call D line dominant by any stretch. They're about national average in defense of line yards and stuff, right? But as a unit, top 25 and EPA per rush allowed and rushing success rate allowed defensively their styles changed a little bit over the years where it's more aggressive, the linebackers can fill and they can play downhill. I think the other interesting thing to factor is Purdue played a very heavy play action passing offense last week in Nebraska. Now, the final score was quite misleading when you have four interceptions and a defensive touchdown Purdue actually only had a 7% endgame win probability. But the point is Adrian Martinez throws with play action nearly 40% of the time. And now Purdue faces a very heavy play action offense with Peyton Thorne who throws with play action about 40% of the time. So I don't think it shocks produced system here. The focus last week was to keep your eyes disciplined. That will be the same approach this week. And so I think that helps a little bit. When you look at Peyton thorn, elite quarterback, with play action. And probably not a starting power 5 quarterback when he doesn't throw with play action just based upon the numbers. They're staggering. Thorn right now, one 37 passer rating with play action, ten to the 15 touchdowns are off play action, just one of the 6 picks are off play action. If you look at non play action, throws 79 passer rating his yards per pass attempt dip 45% in the mistakes just.

"His name is bryce griggs. He's ranked forty third in the class of two thousand twenty two. According to twenty four seven sports and he'll now spend what amounts to his senior year of high school and freshman year of college playing for overtime elite for six hundred thousand dollars a year deadly. How old were you. When you realize four-star guards ranked in the forties could get one point two million dollar contracts. I was i was this week old like i didn't realize that was going to. What are we doing. Listen if overtime elite which is as a reminder funded in part by jeff bezos if it wants to toss around this kind of money to try and recruit players by all means. Go ahead and do it. You're not guaranteed any kind of longevity success because of it. but like i saw price craig's play. He's a really fun player. Like you know in separate alternate reality would have been great to see what he would have been able to grow into in college where he almost certainly would not have been a one and done player and now he's getting paid more than a million When he argued that wasn't even the best player in his grassroots team would with With jail three crew. That i saw there down in north augusta but layout layout your call them in and your thoughts. I have a side thought to this. But i wanna i wanna hold that for just a second there. Like how much did this surprise you. And how much do you think it alters. The paradigm of the recruiting landscape in general. If there's going to be this league overtime elite which most people still don't even know what this is that's able to offer players six hundred eighty seven hundred k nine hundred k. And north of a million dollars to go and play again. This is leaving high school to go and do this as alternative to college but the g. league yes so earlier. I said i think the julie's going to have a hard time securing high school graduates now because that's what the g. league is targeting high school graduates and the reason. I think they're gonna have a hard time. Securing high school graduates is because anybody who's worth money to the g. League is worth money to a college basketball program so a year ago the g. league ignite could say jalen green. Come with us. We'll give you a million dollars or whatever it is. He got and no college could say that without violating ncwa rules. So if you wanna take the money as opposed to not take the money college basketball and then just take the money and go to the g. league night. It's what dacian nick did. Jonathan did jalen green dan. Now if we'll just go jalen deren g. league nights since we got a million dollars for you to come play with us and enter the two thousand twenty two. Nba draft will then memphis. Just says well we can get you more money than that. It's not a problem so now you can go to college and make that money that makes the g. league Pursuit of high school graduates. I believe difficult. This is a totally different deal because overtime is not targeting high school graduates. They're targeting people who just finished their sophomore year of high school in junior high school. So let's go back to bryce craig's here. He wasn't choosing between six hundred thousand dollars next year or going to kansas to make six hundred thousand dollars. Next year he was choosing between six hundred thousand dollars to join overtime elite or just doing a senior high school and the point. I'm making the column that that really does change things. Because i understand why jalen durham would turn down a million from the g. league to go play at memphis because he's going to blend. He's leaving a penny on the table. So i get why he would say i'm going to go to college route but when you just finished your junior high school and i think this is important in your ranked forty third in your high school class. Twenty four seven sports and lower in other places. How do you turn out a guarantee contract with one. Point two million dollars. Like how do your parents let you turn that down..

You know oregon's track record for success just went back to back outright pac twelve titles that has to be a factor a lot of factors but i think the largest factor is name image and likeness rights. Where does he believe. You'll be able to capitalize on his name image and likeness. The best and you know memphis is has already made that case and we'll continue to do so. What i'm certain oregon will do it. As well margin auto is a columnist at the commercial appeal. And which is the newspaper in memphis and he tweeted the other day a couple of days ago a mighty basis visiting memphis where should penny take him. And i quote tweeted with bank of bartlett. And it's a joke. But it's also like i mean it you'll make a bartlett is a local bank founded by herald and bobby bird the bird brothers. If you've ever watched a memphis game if you see some some gentlemen sitting right. Behind the visitors bench heckling the opposing coach relentlessly. Those are the bird brothers. They found it a bank like i. I've seen them. I've seen them get no argument with tom. Green i've i was sitting right behind right near them at a few years ago. South dakota state was play memphis by game and my wife knows. Tj also burger. Who was the coach. A south dakota state at the time known tj forever. He's now of course at iowa.

It could be a local bank local car dealership local barbecue shop trading car company. Mighty bates is going to be a millionaire while. He's playing college basketball. Probably whether it's at memphis oregon and now it's up to memphis and oregon to to make the case that you can. You can profit most heavily at our place while trying to win a national championship and yes developing for the money. Beat will be a millionaire in the year. Two thousand twenty one no matter what he decided to do here because the place college basketball. It'll certainly you know it will certainly be what you just laid out There or if he goes through g. league. I don't know i'm not reporting this. I'm just saying it would not surprise me if the g. league because of again i don't think there's been a player with bates's situation perish two years before like you're leaving high school and you have effectively a near two year. Wait before you're eligible to be drafted. Normally it's one year right. That's not what he has here. He has this this aboriginal window here. And so if you told me that the g. league was prepared to offer bates north of two million to commit and play for their. I would hundred percent believe it's easily understandable. Because he is. He's as big of a name to come out of high school basketball and so long apart. That's because of the hype and he has been over hyped and we touched on that on a previous podcast. I wrote about it from north augusta earlier. This summer there and i think that's a bit problematic but he does still have really really really big star potential If he were to go to oregon real quick. History lesson here if you were to go to oregon It would not surprise me but he would be the highest rated recruit in the history of oregon basketball. At least modern history has to be. I think overall the number one trivia time digging this who's the highest rated recruit ever to commit to oregon. You know what it's been within the past. I'll narrow down four to ten years like i'm picturing players. But i can't think of their names right now let me. I'm not even gonna look at recruiting rankings. Hand to heart. I just want to look at rosters. I've got. I've got the top while you look i've got i'm going to give you the top five highest recruited players to commit to oregon. This is of course. Courtesy of our friends at two four seven sports. If you wanna a trivia time me on this. I it's it's at the same time easily gettable but i don't know if it would have been the player that popped in my mind i but once you know you'll be like oh yeah i remember. Yeah he was pretty highly rated. I'm looking at rosters. Nobody has jumped out yet. This is a half sheet by the way. But i'll allow it. We're in august is a cheat to have cheat. You're you're you're you're you're triggering the old noggin. They're like there was a number four prospect over on his class. The highest one commit to oregon class donating classic two thousand eighteen class of twenty eighteen. That's how recent is was the highest one ever okay. Well then that's going to be louis. King number six will be bowl bowl. Oh god bob hall. Of course although bobo in two thousand eighteen number two is maliki hairston all the way back. That's who that's who. I was thinking of mellick hairston. You wanna remember some dudes here number seven prospect in the class of two thousand four. Just ahead that year. In the rankings of randolph morris. And just behind one sebastian. Tell fair how about that. He's in jail now. She maliki hairston then. Is troy brown twenty seventeen the number thirteen player in the class and the other two highly rated players to commit to oregon in the past twenty or so years and finally dante two thousand nineteen was the fourteen th ranked player in jabari brown back in two thousand eleven man. He had some serious but he was a number seventeen class bates will be above all of them and i strongly think that if he went to oregon that might fit him best in terms of his style. Pac twelve again. You go to memphis you know. Listen i'm all for it. I know you're certainly all for it. But i feel like he might be setting himself up for a bit more. Success at oregon. Waft say wait and see what he wants to do here because he has an opportunity to effectively go and while i'm sure the bates family and certainly delete people in the nba would push back on this rally. It's like if he goes to the g. league he will go and hide for year two now. I think the very nature of him playing with the g. league perish will bring more attention and interest in any other player. That could possibly play. Like i think the very nature of bates playing in the g. league would cause more people maybe to check in and otherwise would but it's still not going to compete with college basketball and and you know everything else. That's happening in the sport cycle there. So if that's what you wanna do. Then i don't think he's going to hurt his stock all that much by doing it but the potential upside at playing.

"I would also add your devoted wife and mother and of course i just wanna hear we know women around the world juggle tax on a daily basis. I would like to hear more from you though about all that yet. Juggling is is in the name of the game. If i did not have a supportive spouse in support a family. I could not have started it when i decided to run. That was the first conversation. People had been encouraging me to run for public office for over ten years and i resisted because they really didn't like politics. I thought it was dirty but i heard very famous indian woman. Speak at a conference in delhi in two thousand thirteen in november. Her name is near molasses that she was asked the question. However you in politics because she was part of the the bjp and in government and she's now famous minister in india but she said in response to a question about.

Don't bail him out, and I feel like they're gonna bail him out here with their kids who hands Henry put two hands on him at.
