we've had some questions about it's Book Utter Percent Deposit Match Bonus for the live casino at Gsi it's only a game until you bet one guest plenty of mine one of our favorites it in particular on

the right way by him and hopefully that'll mean doing something here once we get this sort of January but kyle let's spend a couple of minutes here on the NFL real quickly and then we'll dedicate the majority of the show do college football and look at it be nice if college basketball started maybe not for you with how hectic today has been but it would be nice if we had something to pay attention to tonight other than this dolphins and steelers matchup yeah I mean it it might make you WanNa watch the NBA a little bit more here tonight with the dolphins and steelers matchup but I mean if you look at this game to be honest with you the thing that really stands out out to me as a public big underdog and this is pretty rare and the NFL it's very rare to see lines of this magnitude and in generally in this year's been pretty often compared to other years and I will say that when you see it it's very rare that the public wants to go against that favorite It has me very hesitant about this game to be honest with you I I liked the dolphins if I have to take anything and to be honest with you to say I liked it all eight percent of money on the dolphins here it's just become a really popular side that obviously doesn't mean ish fade that go against it and you'll make money offense almost kind of hard to say because it's hard to like the dolphins too much but you know you see so much of the the bats sixty percent it was even higher than that yesterday sixty it's not it's not gonna be that easy but I don't really like taking a big public underdog Ryan Fitzpatrick what are you going to get from him you know what be to pick sixes it will be a good game it's hard to say you know he has potentially also has potential to really ruined the Bat Mason Rudolph hasn't impressed me very much that's the main reason I would rather take the points and I would lay the points yeah and Juju Smith Schuster a little bit banged up in practice last week as well so the steelers I mean they don't have as many weapons this year's so not real thrilled about that here on a Monday morning and this is a game I'll just stay away from but other than that as far as what we saw in the NFL the rest of the weekend anything kind of he was The colts in the Broncos to me you know the colts look like they were going to lose that game almost all the way through the colts to me I mean their record obviously the side you would have liked but again as you mentioned a very big public underdog at you know hey I mean as far as I'm concerned I clearly had no idea in the NFL this week going Oh and five in both contests backs they're not really as productive as Leon Bell and not really as much of a dual threat either so I don't even know how you look at the total of forty four for this game dolphins here that was Texans and raiders over fifty one and a half obviously finished a fifty one wasn't too thrilled about that but you know you've got a interesting game had in past years Schuster's gets misused getting that double coverage without Antonio Brown obviously didn't have levy on bell last year but you know James Connor and the stable running got bill O'Brien as your coach instead of Frank Reich so talent wise Houston's a better team coaching wise they're not the other game that kind of stood out to me is that Carolina defense which really is thought to be pretty good gave up as much as they did Jimmy Garoppolo throwing eighteen to twenty two hundred seventy I I really don't think they're that good you know I think that that's a division that still wide-open Houston certainly has the potential to win that division You know the problem is thirty four yard line in College football this week the bears kicked four red zone field goals and a field goal from the twenty two yard line it's hard super contest I knew that one was dead before it even went off I was even having reservations about it on Friday and into Saturday morning before I set my place in it just certainly better than that team is at this point and I liked the colts I like Frank Reich but you know it's hard to say that with the kind of record they have and leading into vision are there from this past weekend it was game that I've lost took the honor in the forty niners game they'd been pretty good to me earlier this year but the forty niners just ran over Carolina definitely didn't boned by these idiots just making these dumb ass decisions and I'm tired of it yeah I mean I agree with you to have the bears yesterday five yards with twenty twenty five miles per hour sustained winds in that game so I guess the Panthers Defense wishes that bad yeah I mean that's an abominable out to you WANNA mention here I mean I thought that there were a few interesting games here in the NFL this weekend I went one into the NFL this weekend my last came was tiebreak patrol when it comes to betting is getting the best number I possibly can that's the only thing I have control over then of course picking which games I wanna bet but week after week man at the end of the game basically playing for a fifty yard Adam vinatieri Field Hill would vegetarian has been a mess this year we saw coaches putting from the opposing thirty three going for the panthers and I was on the panthers and I knew that bet was dead in the water when that line kept coming down lot of public underdog money on Carolina they were the number one consensus to win betting the NFL and College Football Without these Asinine coaching decisions and the bears should've covered Houston should've covered. Oh I don't know I guess we'll see how they bounce back you mentioned Indianapolis I thought it was weird I feel like Frank Reich is one of the better head coaches in the NFL and there he Bryan's running the football on first down one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. It's so frustrating that I know that so many of these things are out of my control adjust handicapped coaching and that was it you know the lines are already really tight but it seems like coaching matters more than ever to me in the NFL I would say the other game that really I stood out to me yesterday that didn't mention first of all was the eagles against the Bills Eagles Bounce back win over the bills was pretty impressive in the but again the fact that buffalo was never a field goal favorite net game those two teams were never equal on a neutral field Philadelphia was powerade what the Hell happened to Alex grinch I mean he was so good at Washington state but Ohio State's defense was bad last year and boy sooners not a good look this weekend manage and Buffalo was never a three point favorite in that game so that line basically told us everything we need to know you know obviously I got scared off by Oh king that the bears were playing for a long field goal I mean everybody in their brother knows the bears haven't had a good kicker and here there is a minute left in the game expect that knew it was under forty two when I took it San Francisco gets fifty one by themselves so not close on that one at all but at rose I mean I agree I think that there was clearly some sharp money on the Eagles in that game and it was hard to bet the eagles after what you saw the previous it wound up not feeling right and I stuck with it and I paid the price for it and coming off of a by that is an atrocious showing for Ron Rivera in his teams that weather there you know the bills are what they what they are they're pretty good defense and limited on offense but I think that was a good showing by Philly Sunday night there against the cowboys but they ended up certainly being right side and I think that you can make an argument that if you're looking at teams that are kind of they're just playing to try to set up a forty one yard field goal I mean they've just been going down the field like it was no problem against the chargers they probably could've scored a touchdown good defensively they will like regression candidate and yet they come in and pull the upset against Oklahoma certainly was interesting finish there and I think they made the right call the opposition's thirty three and thirty four yard line and we also have more chaos and who've boy I don't know it as the better team that's one there again you do a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking here in the NFL and and that's where I I missed the boat be honest just very strange I mean that they at least didn't even want to kick a shorter field goal that one was really strange to me definitely I agree with you that it seems like in the NFL Alfie been playing but that line was very very telling I mean the result is not really what I expected I thought Philadelphia could win the game I didn't figure they'd win it by more than three scores is that it speaks to how hard it is to play in college football with no margin for error in terms of the College Football playoff in Oklahoma could still get there briefly Oregon Oregon was a game that you and I talked about a little bit off the air to Oregon secondary definitely vulnerable against the pass they've been very good against the I think that was really a really interesting game and I wonder who that says Moore out you know maybe as Oklahoma not quite as good as we thought they were Kansas state better than we thought I that was a game I was falling pretty good that was my one win in the NFL yesterday with Yonder I will say the end of that game truly shocked I'm an off that ugly loss against the House and and to me even though Philly has been inconsistent this year still team with a high upside that was one where the line told us everything we need to know you had fortunately but I didn't in Kansas State had much of a chance at all their climb and certainly a really good coach but Kansas state's numbers if you look at them they haven't even been very alpha team off back-to-back blowout losses a buffalo teammates played very well here this is in new airfield or Era Stadium whatever the hell it's called pretty good home field goes and beats Texas and winds up being the sharp side in that game so I don't know I'm not really sure who that says more about the the one thing I know for sure I was really surprised by that certainly if I had to pick that game if I was going to bet something on that game I would have Bet Oklahoma I didn't bet that game very competitive for whatever reason it's or going to believe they had won four straight over the docks this week Oregon gets USC and I will tell you this a I'm very bell that you know if you were GonNa take one league where you just bad on who has the better coach that might be the one league to bet on just that you know Washington exploit that Oregon Defense in particular that Oregon pass defense then Washington state of course throws four bills which they usually do and they're very if we saw this with Oklahoma necessarily maybe we did with how they didn't put Texas away in the first half let them hang around head to hold on for the win underplay Halton not good at all on the road. USC also has that pass offense that can take advantage of that secondary US's receivers are excellent single biggest trade but when you're one of these elite teams and you've got that Bullseye week after week after week and you can't slip up and Oklahoma slipped up and that was a game really nice if you can at least have a pretty good defense I think Oklahoma's defenses a little bit better than they've been in past years but still clearly weakness and then another game I wanted to say with the the onside kick on ten yards you and I kinda talked about that off the air that a little bit surprising that they changed that but I think it was the right call just off myself for missing seven or six and a half be I'm GONNA wind up playing USC money line 'cause I think Oregon goes down this week because you see this kind of forming it could have been a really embarrassing blow out yeah I mean in Oklahoma didn't lose to a team that was highly rated so that that one is going to not look very good on the game they're fortunate to win or they don't look very good then somebody finally catches them this could very well be that week for Oregon Yeah aware of what would be your takeaway from that yeah I'm not sure either Kansas State team that you know beat Tcu that was a little bit misleading box score a couple of weeks ago TCU seeing this with Oregon and another game it's coming up this weekend with Smu they've had a lot of close calls here to you kind of see this coming where teams play it'd be two or three to me the other thing it points out is that it's hard to win games of that are really high scoring closer games because your defense is not very good it's it's made more questionable decisions on what he did I posted on twitter about this you know that is something that even though Oregon one I think people need to really remember that that was what forty eight to twenty three or something like that before Oklahoma mounted its comeback when that thing was a runaway trade before Kansas State puckered up a little bit tale kudos to anybody out there in Vegas that wound up grabbing a piece of USC because I do think they wind up being the right side here but yeah college football is very top heavy and I'm sure we'll so much can happen between now and the end of the season but those four played really well this year yeah they definitely have just want to correct myself Org actually open seven at circa as well so get back to your life with CBD Medic Available Online and at cvs these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA this product is not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease on behalf to tell you the thing that really stood out to me at the end of that game was Oregon was so fortunate to win that Game Mario Cristobal did everything he could do to lose that game I mean you couldn't possibly and state and then of course the rivalry game Thanksgiving weekend on the road at the big house so I'll say it's got the two tests left and you know maybe Minnesota in the big ten championship game feature that Crystal Ball is a really good recruiter and maybe he's good at motivating players but when it comes to end game decisions definitely some problems well and you and I talked a little bit about Oregon they lose forty three to twenty honestly I had a pretty good Saturday but this one kinda soured my day based on the fact that I've been leaning towards Michigan every single week that Mike you like you're saying I mean if they lost Texas by a small margin even though I don't really think Texas is very good that would have been seen as a more acceptable loss to that team is they're receivers let's be honest their quarterback placement pretty good so I think USC should be able to take advantage of that maybe an over in that game you would think that Oregon score their points as well but you know in general Pretty Wild Weekend College football and I would say that you know we had Ohio state with the dominating win over so that'll be pretty interesting for them all right let's take a look at some misleading scores from this past weekend you've got two of them I've got three of them love looking at these because I want to put Washington state in the Golden Nugget and we split our college picks there with Washington state being one of the winners and I really liked Washington state in that game against Oregon because we auto state more but Hey Ohio state doesn't play a game now until November twenty third play GonNa buy this week they play Maryland and rutgers and they've got to pick it back up against Wisconsin Ohio state certainly looks very good I'm not just saying that as the Buckeyes fan but they've been really impressive and I would say that you know we have a few teams here that really stand in year they don't they don't finally come up with a win like they've been they have been ats every week however if you look at that Game Buffalo Wins For re three twenty buffalo with four point seven yards per play central Michigan five point zero yards per play central Michigan had five turnovers in this game they were three thirteen Arkin was actually minus seven somewhere yeah a circle six and a half and better light opened seven wow yeah I would like to take seven to you know. US's been good art with the one that's a negative on for me because week after week I've been leaning Central Michigan couldn't pull the trigger couldn't poetry finally I take central Michigan last weekend again they can lead to getting in front of some line moves or just in general things that you want to pay attention to so that you're not overvaluing or overrating teams okay I'm going to see hanging out the top teams with Lsu Ohio state Clemson Bama you know these are four teams to me will like the top four teams right now obviously hello teams that could make a run this year that the eagles would probably be about the top of my list all right so we go over to college football where again we've got guys punting literal Michigan fumble touchdown twenty two yards later fumble touchdown in the first place fifteen yards later I mean you just get buried at that point and they were buried in this game down they're down in two for five one fourth them yeah I agree I was also on central Michigan we had this one of the nuggets also had it personally and I mean look after this guy what he's done here to get this team to five hundred with effectively no quarterback play whatsoever another good coaching job by him yeah it really is a great win for San Jose and again I mean that's spot was terrible long trip early kickoff option team and they still go up there the biggest disappointment so far this year and certainly San Jose State you got to feel good for them as much as they've struggled for year after year for them to be this good it's been really surprising you're this one's fairly high profile Texas at TCU TCU winds thirty seven twenty-seven but four semi etlinger interceptions in that Game Jose State had eight point two yards per play army four point eight yards per play certainly this was not a fluke shouldn't have been this close I don't think I I think armies been you mentioned this one to me Miami and pit Miami with two hundred eight yards of total offense against Pitt here only twelve first downs it would be I mean you might get committed for saying something like that right yeah I mean you have people that are giving you some really strange looks line that lines now to three and a half pretty much market wide now and I am very very upset at myself for not jumping on that one three misleading scores that I've got for you I I'm concerned. Fau and Middle Tennessee state now Middle Tennessee state did gain four hundred ninety six yards here outgained F. I. Four Ninety Win The game three turnovers repent they were might a steward turnover margin that's one that stood out but here's the big one of the week the Creme de la creme of the misleading scores being score in the Air Force should have beaten Utah State even more than they did the other day Utah State which is totally half plus they couldn't do anything right in that game but certainly I think that Jordan loves struggles probably more about the coaching staff where the players around him than him himself You know honestly you could say there was a mislead western New York absolutely he's very good coach you know they're without their starting quarterback now buffalo team as a lot of shortcomings and yet they've still been able to do okay well at least largely based on having such a good coach certainly another one I wanted to say San Jose State Thirty four army twenty nine this one should have been bigger blowouts and take care of business and deservedly so and I mean I don't know if they get two more wins for a bowl game but I certainly wouldn't mind seeing it had this discussion with Brad powers last week I just want to get your I but I'm going to blame Gary Anderson for neutering him and by the way that's one of the big line moves here the week Byu and Utah State Byu actually opened as high as eight at bet on Arjun all of them fumbles for Fiu and Middle Tennessee state had twenty five passing yards in this game and scored fifty point and that really changed the complexion of that one TCU did outgained Texas on a yards per play standpoint but still the four interceptions therefore Texas definitely stood out take on it if you would have told Brad I talked about this if you would've told us before the season that Josh Love What outplay Jordan love this year in West Conference changed the complexion of this game early and look I mean I'll I'll see this muffled with Lance Leopold again I don't know why no bigger program came in sad to see as good a player like Jordan loved really struggling in his final season. Yeah I'M GONNA blame it on Gary Anderson more than anything I there was a lot of turnaround and only the two returning starter six to three thousand nine hundred F. I was up seventeen to fourteen at halftime outscored thirty six to nothing in the second half minus four turnover the quarterback for Middle Tennessee six of twelve for twenty five yards but he ran twenty two times for one hundred and fifty nine yards. We haven't seen that wrinkle for Middle Tennessee right so yeah I mean I don't know did did you see any of that game at all did you see the conditions in that game I didn't see any of it but I will see this asteroid all that often here certainly never with Brent stock still haven't seen it much this year four hundred seventy one rushing yards and if whether it was a factor how do you not flood the box yeah it was a will the field was flooded I mean it was there there might have been fifty people in the stands total they kept showing the player is per game allowed by Syracuse and I know some people want to say that quarterback play has a decent amount to do with this but if you watch some Syracuse Games getting fifteen or twenty yards every single play in the second half it was just unbelievable that they were getting so much all right so we go to some interesting stats here that will go to is on the sidelines because there was basically fans in the stands to show so I just a wild game in that field just was ponding with water eight so syracuse this is a team that most people thought would be pretty good this season if you WANNA know why they're struggling so badly look at their offensive line Matt earlier in even in the NFL. Coaching really does make a big difference. I wanted to point out that conference USA has been really really weak this year I started not saying that Devito or anybody that's been playing quarterback for Syracuse is actually very good but it'd be hard for anybody to be very good behind that offensive line they've just been really take this is really just about the same group of players as last year's that was a really big disappointment on defense I'm gonNA say most of the blame for last year goes onto Greg Sheehan country for comparison Sake Sacramento State and FCS teams played the one hundred and twenty third toughest schedule and you can clearly find a lot of FCS teams that very heavy wind heavy rain and pretty stunning like like what you just said right there I mean you knew Middle Tennessee state was about to run the ball every single time and yet here the let like every every state federal talks about guys NFL draft pick that guy's NFL draft that guy's a first rounder and last year they were awful it's Piss poor showing from the Syracuse off of line seven more sacks allowed here this past weekend yeah it's it's truly gotten to be an epidemic for Syracuse aggressip stats I know the people like does give the people what they want here on the show let's go ahead and talk about some interesting stats both over the past weekend and from you know the this is hyperbole but chase young maybe the best defensive Lineman I've ever seen in college football and I wish she had a younger brother that is the only regret it's amazing the difference at Jeff Happily Greg Madison and made here and of course Larry Johnson does a phenomenal job as a defensive line coach and I don't know about that guy I wish you had a younger brother who was better than him coming to Ohio state here in a year or two yeah let's I mean they've had the boasts and then you could definitely argue the chase young Alabama State Akron South Alabama Western Kentucky Rice Utsa Old Dominion so I mean this has been quite the run here for he was CFP STATS DOT com primarily here on the show that doesn't include all the FCS games if you use something like team rankings that only includes the FBI they can't fix that and it's GonNa be a rough season for them I'd be careful laying too many points syracuse against anybody too because especially if you think the other team as a decent pass rush said be really bad they've been terrible and you know we it was an angle that we talked about it and that Pitt and Syracuse game you know two weeks ago and that one became a sweat that it really should and forty two sacks allowed this year I mean that makes and makes the Akron Office of line look pretty good and that you know that's that's hard to do five point two five sacks they have a pit head what ten or eleven sacks in that game and they still barely covered the number of the game is still barely stayed under two but man that was a that was play tougher schedules in several of combat USA teams yeah and something that's important to point out I know we had a listener reach out to us about Middle Tennessee state in their yards per play number we yeah I mean if you look at UAB and you actually wanted to say how how good are they actually out where would their defense rank in the country Gosh I mean looking at different teams in conference USA and thinking none of them played anybody good knee realized conference USA is just really week how you IBS played one hundred eighty nine but this this defense is just so much better with a lot of the same players it was hilarious watching the game there and you've got jobs there again UAB fifth best in the country in yards per play loud with four point zero nine I didn't I knew their schedule was bad but I didn't realize it was that at very dangerous I'm a high states I in the country in yards per play allowed at three point five nine I have to say it's really amazing what kind of difference a change at the defensive coordinator spot can lower-tier SEC team. Yeah meaning you have the number hires which mean I think my number while it was higher than what I saw a circle open thirteen on for UAB as far as not facing any teams with decent offenses having said that I would lean to some overs within the rest of the season especially if you can get low numbers because don't like betting against them so not sure it'll make my car but I would lean toward Tennessee based on the step up in Class Baylor team that is ninth in the country in yards This is a Tennessee team that certainly played quite a bit better of late I've been a little bit surprised by Tennessee's play of late looks like they play Kentucky next so they are going to play some better offenses none of their offices they're going to play against are great but they're better than what they played against so far and I think you'll find in conference USA you're going to have the in Tennessee for exactly that reason you had a bunch of big numbers here over the course of the season but now they are tremendously stepping up in class now a lot of respect for that UAB defense at present but I mean that's a massive step up in class to go from the schedule they have played to playing even best I think he is the best of the three of those players just really dominating gamespot himself and like you said you know they have so many high draft with a winning record is western Kentucky and Western Kentucky is great defensively and they're not particularly awesome on offense but one of my biggest overlays here this week is you lisa they're talking about it's like those guys looked really bad last year not chase young but most of the other guys it's pretty amazing what a difference coaching can make that kind of ties into what we're talking Paul Job if he upgrades it's the NFL right yeah yeah I I would be surprised if he doesn't get an NFL job at this point you know he has done so well he I am obssession was fourteen seventeen as about as low as you'll ever see so Gary Anderson which I actually respect the fact they're playing really fast you would think that'd be good hard to imagine how much lower would act be view look at the schedule they played so far this year really they haven't even played a decent offense yet so what a huge pr overlay for me but you know just situationally uab just a massive step up in class. I could only take Tennessee there the question certainly is to schedule in the country according to SAG rent I like Zagren because it also counts F. C. S. so Louisiana Tech is played one hundred fifty fifth tough schedule in the given the job that met rule has done at Baylor and I know the first year was a massive transitional year but he had to clean up the culture that program and also deal with a escapes so that's why there can be some discrepancies all within the stats that we're talking about UAB and I mentioned this last week I said Oh you know Bill Clark Student Work Down I wouldn't say that's a big ahead spot so I I certainly leaned Tennessee in that next game I think that UAB is just a team that I really like to be honest mass exodus of talent that wanted to transfer out met rule just might be a top five coach in college football and the thing of it is he's not going to upgrade to a better college I don't have in front of me as far as who Tennessee plays right after that but his Tennessee GonNa be looking past this game are they actually going to care about this game nine and a half not really a big number but I mean this guy is really proving himself time and time again he's been great as an underdog team playing some really good football right now Yeah Matt Ryan replay margin so far this year I think people need to be careful not to overlook what a Great Job Matt Rule is on I think there's a lot of places that wish that they had hired Matt Rule Utah State we mentioned them briefly earlier their average time of possession so far this year twenty three minutes and thirty eight seconds last weekend against Air Force and Tennessee is actually look much better the last three weeks here that may be a reality check type of game for you a beep and we'll see how that line moves around nine and a half or ten a really long time I think Utah Saints Defense is actually pretty decent but you know it's it's very hard to be in that situation if your team only has fourteen minutes time of possession either in Utah State's the team I'd rather go against an back certainly just team that to me it's been a big disappointment I know they lost a lot of talent but you know they should be better than they've been game I believe my number and that one is seven in the markets nine and a half okay yeah okay so I I yeah I like Tennessee in that game if I was going to bet aside not the Nebraska cornhuskers in Nebraska scored on only twenty one out of thirty one trips into the red zone only sixteen of those have been touchdowns but they're playing really fast but really have been poor efficiency wise which what does that mean you know you go out really quickly and you get your defense on the field for replace Oh they've really regressed your it fairness I mean you know you play air force limited number of plays limited number possessions did play Lsu San Diego State is a very feisty defensive team here in and year out but as you look at the rest of the schedule Byu pretty good defense tough game this week Fresno state they're down Israel played fourteen of sixteen for two hundred one yards fairly efficient day for him against Indiana but I don't know maybe they're better with Martinez but that's the thing coaching issues there there definitely aren't and keep in mind too I mean love threw for four hundred sixteen yards in the opener wake forest that up and down game that was kind of all over the mean at least somewhat liberty twenty eight and yards per play on offense so far this year but sixtieth points per game they're only eighty ninth in the country started credible job at and I know you and I kind of have this talk sometimes sometimes we do it on twitter sometimes we do on the show talking about top five top ten coaches in college football got frost to was very highly thought of both as a coordinator there at Oregon and then also as the central Florida head coach. Yeah I think we'll we'll see about UMASS team that they they've got some serious problems in a yet they continue to play in the top six or eight of the country in tempo so the the perfect elixir for a struggling offenses Umass I mean you can't just fifty six on him

EPISODE 13 WEB RADIO TODAY

"It is a hot summer morning here on the Nashville Tennessee area, and hey, everybody I'm skip Oram, welcoming you to the July twenty four twenty twenty edition of Web Radio Today. This is episode number thirteen and I am recording a podcast today on my back porch here Nolansville Tennessee. I hope you'll excuse any background noises in airplanes flying by any birds singing cars going by hopefully, no lawnmowers, her or grasp lowers. I wanted to come outside and and do the show this morning just to get out of the studio for a little while. Get some fresh air. It's cool and comfortable right now out here this morning, but it's going to be a scorcher a little later on today here in the Middle Tennessee Area I. Hope that it's a nice day wherever you are listening from today because on. On today's episode. WE'RE GONNA be talking briefly about heart rate monitors, which which can help you. You know tracking your different training zones when you're doing heart rate training as part of your exercise program, and then we'll begin to discuss the the importance of making sure that that you've included strength training as part of your exercise program, and of course this episode will contain a mini workout. And a pretty cool featured song a little later in what should come in at about a thirty minute podcast. I know that our listeners are living very full and an active life and the Jew probably have a lot of stuff. You need to do so i. don't want this podcast to take up too much of your valuable time today. You know that phrase. In the blink of an eye. I think that. Perhaps! There are some life lessons in that phrase in the blink of an eye and I want to see if you agree with me about that, so we'll talk a little later about the phrase in the blink of an eye. I had a situation that that came up last week that that brought it home to me that. A lot of us are trying to deal with with things that. Just seem so well so out of our control. Personally. I consider it a gift from God that that I don't have this need to. Control well. This needs to control everything. I like to be in control in certain situations, and and when a situation needs to be controlled and nobody's taken control. I'd be the first to jump in and in Toronto run things. But for the most part. I'm not what you'd call a control freak. There are people out there. Maybe you're one of them. Who just feel the need to. Control everything? Here's the thing though. Whether. You're like me or whether you feel that need to control everything well, the thing is there are just so many situations that are totally out of our control. Well. You can drive yourself nuts trying to figure out how to get some some of these situations under control. And then there are those times when. Someone we know or someone close to us is going through a rough time. Maybe an illness. And we just we just want to help them in any way that we can, but but we don't know what to do or or maybe we don't have the means to go to them and help them. And then of course most of us. We worry about tomorrow. We worry about the future. We. Don't really have any control over that, but we should try to control it. All of this worry. All of this need. To control things that we can't control. This need to do something or help. When we don't know how to help, we don't have the means to help. This constant worry about tomorrow. It's not good for us. It's certainly not good for our health. It's not good in helping us. Try to fight off diseases. Because if we're trying to stay healthy. And prevent disease. Eradication disease that might be inside of us. We need to do all that we can to lower Austria level. How do we do that? Well, we need to look to God. Jesus says in Matthew Nineteen Twenty, six and I think this applies. To this worrying control stuff. Jesus looked at them and said. With man, this is impossible. With God, all things are possible, so take hard everybody. Isaiah, forty, one ten. Here, not for I am with you. Be Not dismayed for I. Am Your God? I will strengthen you. I will help you. I would have holds you with my righteous hand. That is strength right there to help you with your worries. Because we don't have the strength to live each day. Handle all these worries on our own. Research don't have the strength plan out and control every aspect of our lives of our children's lives of everybody else's lives. When we give that power to God. Then we're able to find relief. Matthew Eleven twenty eight. Come to me. All who labor and are heavy Laden and I'll give you rest. Wow! What are we like less than ten minutes into the podcast today in already out here on the Porch Middle Tennessee, the temperature gone up about ten more degrees season. And the skies getting even a little cloudier right now, so I don't know of will be finishing this entire podcast on the porch today, but I'm sure going to tried. So before it gets even hotter I think we'd better do a web radio today many workout. This is where you and I. We get up and move, and in any way that we can. Our goal is to. To get our heart rates up to little, burn a couple of calories maybe and and gained some energy. Actually gained some energy by expanding some energy. Can't get up move in any way that you safely can while you're sitting down. The object here is movement. It's your heart beating a little faster. Walking running dancing cycling whatever you WANNA do. If, you're doing a workout right now as you as you listen to the web radio today podcast doing a workout right now. Rank it up during this many work down. Starts moving everybody. Bring it down and cool down for just a couple of minutes before you stop. It moving but at a much slower pace. Received positive comments about our heart rate training many workout which we featured on last week's episode. If you didn't listen to that episode, and if you WanNa try that very simple, many sample interval training workout. Go to web radio, today DOT COM and then. Click on the audio bursts page. And then click on the button for the mini workout and it'll be right there for you to download. I'll also linked to it in the show notes page for this episode and show notes are at Web Radio Today, Dot Com. Just click on the podcast and show notes page. Okay, let's bring the cool down part of our many workout. For episode number thirteen to an end right now. On next week's web radio today episode. That'll be episode fourteen. You'll be out on. Friday. July thirty first next Friday. That entire episode all twenty five minutes of it. will be a stand alone. Heart rate training workout. And that'll be designed for. Our listeners who are using the interval training heart rate training plan A. This is important if you're not familiar with heartbreak training, I'd suggest that you listen to web. Radio Today Episode Number Twelve. That's last week's episode. It'll give you give you a lot of good background information. That'll help you get started with heart rates rainy. That's episode twelve last week's episode of the Web Radio Today podcast the combination of that many workout. If you try that that. That many workout that was part of episode twelve, and then the the PDF that I wrote on heart rate training, and by the way that PDF that'll also be in the show notes for this episode with those two things I think that we've given you a well a pretty good under understanding an introduction and a heart rate training and the different heart rate training zones. And I've also tried to show you. How by listening to your body. That you'll sort of know which heart rate training zone you're exercising in. But, if you want to have a more specific and concise measurement of your heart rate, making sure that you're correctly and each one of those trainings zones. One very simple way to do that is to stop and find your pulse on your wrist, or or on your neck. Measure Your Paul's count, your heart heartbeats for ten seconds, and then multiply that number by six. That will give you your heart rate right there at that second. And if you know what heart rate training zone you should be in, and you've counted your heartbeats like that. You'll be able to know if you're exercising at the correct heartbeat for that training zone. Of course, the problem there is that you have to stop your workout for a few seconds to take those measurements. The other way you can measure your heart. Rate is to wear a heart rate monitor I do that by wearing my watch, which is constantly measuring? My heartbeat is a Duma workout. That's a little more expensive of a way to do all that especially, if you don't currently own an iphone or an Apple Watch. Another standalone less expensive device is the fit bit charge for A. Fitness, tracker! You wear that device on your wrist, and then it'll track your heartbeat. It'll display that it will also track your workout and also then store the data. Those are the the two devices that I know enough about to recommend? Amazon has the fit bit charged four for about a hundred and thirty dollars, and I'll also linked to to that in the show notes. There are other devices out there. Some may be a little more accurate than the apple. Watch the fitbit because they are actually with those devices. You're actually wearing a a band around your chest as you exercise, and then your heart rate then displays on a device on your wrist, and then, of course you can still get deeper into the weeds with a ton of other devices to measure your heart rate. My recommendation at least for now especially, if you're just starting out with heart rate interval training. Listen to your body. And you'll do fine. And now it is time for the featured song for today's episode. And then after we listen to the featured song, we're GONNA to move into the strength training part of our exercise helmet, and then still later in the podcast, and we will look at what can happen in the blink of an eye. Joy with me now the fire apes for a day and see the acids Ri-. Let's. You Feel full you. Can read. Love, Oh. Love? De! You. I can be. An. A. Oh? Yeah, Savin Hill. Bye. She always. Fill. Yes. Instead. Saving. The fire apes a little bit of a Beatles. Web Radio Today. Regular listeners know that the web radio today fitness model has seven elements, faith, diet, exercise, attitude, positive, imagery, music, and knowledge and the past few weeks. We've been talking about the exercise elements specifically heart rate training. I want to spend a little time today. Talking about the other part of the Exercise Element Strength Training. My neighbor's dogs are are now deciding that they want to be part of the PODCAST. To tell our listeners that the human body changes as we get older and sometimes well, we don't particularly like those changes are metabolism. It gets slower. Our strength, and and in particular are muscle. Mass begins to decrease. We, lose quite a bit of our bone density and our body fat increases. We get stiffer joints well. By the time we reach our seventies, the average person loses. About twenty five percent of their muscle mass. Those changes. Sad is they? Are there normal and we definitely are all going to experience them in our sixties in our seventies, but they don't need to be extreme, and we can do some things to to slow and minimize those changes. Were already working to two key bar, heart healthy, but by doing heart rate training. However, we also need to strengthen. Our muscles are other muscles our bones? We need to keep our joints in shape and we do that by doing strength training. Most of the changes due to aging. There simply a result of not using our muscles and inactivity my prescription for correcting all that or at least trying to minimize a lot of it. Strength, training doing strength training as part of your exercise, your overall exercise plan it allows us to build muscles build up those muscles that are going away and those stronger muscles. Those built up muscles. Or what they do is they? Burn off fat. Strength Training gives us a lot more mobility, and it helps us to never have to need those those canes and those walkers. Improve our bodies with strength training everything improves. And it helps us to make these senior years easier. The have more fun. It helps US fight off diseases if you WANNA do that. Here's your homework. I'M GONNA post two articles in the show notes for this episode at Web, Radio Today Dot, com, the first article strength training, get stronger, leaner and healthier. It's an article written by the Mayo Clinic Staff. And then the second article is everything you need to know about strength training. That article comes from. Silver sneakers. Remember Abul Post. Links to those two articles in the show notes for this episode Web Radio Today, Dot Com in the next two weeks plan to to read those two articles and begin to think about how you can add strength training, and to your exercise routine, and then on Web Radio Today Episode Fifteen. That's two weeks from today on that episode. We'll introduce you to the Web Radio Today's Strength Training Program designed specifically for folks in their sixties seventies. Don't forget though next week's episode will be a special workout episode. That workout. The plan a heart rate training interval training workout coached by me, plus we'll have some good music on that episode to work out with. Just a reminder, all of our episodes. All the episodes of Web Radio today are available wherever you get your podcast us. We're on every major podcasting platform and ended this in all of the web radio today. Episodes are also right there at the web radio today DOT COM website. I'm undercover on porch out here, but the rain has started to come down, but it's not gonNA. Stop me! It's not gonNA. Stop US everybody. Episode Thirteen of Web Radio Today continues on. A red just an amazing article. Today I was turned onto the article by listening to one of my favorite podcasts, the Spielman and and Hooghly we tackled life podcast. They talk a lot about Ohio state sports, but they also talk a lot about faith. And this article that Chris Spielman was reading from an alluded to and that I subsequently read later talks a lot about this cove nineteen. Stop in and what we're going through right now is a nation from a faith perspective. I have recorded me reading this article and I've posted it at web radio today, DOT COM it'll be in the show notes for this episode, and it'll also be on the audio burst page their Web radio today DOT COM. I don't WanNa get into all this kkob stuff on our podcast. But I. Think if if you want some more information about it, if you WANNA think about it from a faith perspective that articles Kinda cool. You have two choices you can. You can push the play button there and you can listen to me. Read the article, or you can read the transcript of the article. That's also there as part of the link on WEB RADIO TODAY DOT COM Quite a bit of background ambience on the Web Radio Today podcast today we started out with dogs barking now we have rain coming down and I. Think at some point we might even get a little bit of thunder in the background, but it's all good and I think it especially. ADDS some background. To what we're going to talk about next. When I was getting ready to be wheeled into the operating room for my prostate, surgery and March just before I was due to roll out of that pre op room and head for the operating room. The Senior Deacon at my church, he showed up. It was kind of funny, because in addition to being a deacon at my church. His job was that he was a nurse at Vanderbilt. Hospital a member of their heart transplant team. So he shows up there into the pre op room with this special heart transplant team scrubs on heart transplant team written route there on his shirt I thought. Wait a minute. I'm not getting a heart transplant. Actually he was there to pray with my wife. Terry and I just before the surgery. I appreciated so much immense just so much to me. And I remember that he was saying that. Terry just after we finish star prayer. Sand to her that she needed to go downstairs to the family, waiting room and wait there for about six hours or more, while while my surgery was taking place. But for me. That time would go by. Just in the blink of an eye. Blink of an eye. I've been thinking and an actually. Rain. Talking with God about what that phrase means to me in the blink of an arm. As it's now thunder in the background. That phrase it helps me to understand how really fragile and short. Our Life on earth here is compared to spending eternity with Jesus. That's what our life here on earth. It is according to God's total plan for us. Our, time here on earth, it's just like the blink of an eye. All the goes on in our lives here on earth, the beginning to the end, and all those things that we experience in between. It's just the blink of an eye. Such short time compared to eternity. Here's one way. You can live that short time that that we have on earth. Yet the most you can out of this live live for today because tomorrow, Redone. Acquire Possessions Fun. Live the good life. There is a problem with that kind of thinking. We. Don't just die. Their is an afterlife. And where we spend that afterlife, which is all of eternity where we spend eternity. Depends on how we live our lives today. Is Jesus at the center of your life because he needs to be. Living a life centered on Jesus. It begins with realizing that well God is the author of our story. Everything that we have. was given to us by God. Our blessings are talents. All the good things all the bad things. Everything comes from God. Believing in Jesus and then believing in his life, his death. His resurrection. That's more than just a ticket to heaven. Although it is, but this is important. Are Christ centered life? GIVES US hope and joy? that. We can experience in the here and now in this life. Because Jesus he's. He's promised us his presence in our life here on earth until he calls his home. It isn't wrong. Everybody to pursue our personal goals here on earth but but Jesus. He needs to be our anchor our guide our true compass on how we live our life on earth. If you haven't done so already, I urge you. Come on home to Jesus. Make him the center of Your Life. You'll see an immediate change in everything. And that gift. It's out there for the taking. Accept it and walk with Jesus. It's so simple. You don't need you. Don't need the plan the Jesus into your life. You don't need to tie up any loose ends. You don't need to be real good for a few days. You can come to Jesus. Read now just as you are. Like the verse of the old him says. Just as I am though tossed about. With many a conflict and many a doubt. Fighting fears with Ihnen without. A lamb of God. Won't you come home to cheese today? He's waiting for you just as you are. Whatever bad things you may have done. He knows about them already. He doesn't care. He wants to forgive you. I'll Satan. He's suggesting that you might WanNa think about this for a little while before jumping into this Jesus thing. Satan! He's telling you. Don't make any rash decisions. You have all the time in the world. That's a lie. No, you don't. Tomorrow's not guaranteed. It could all be gone in the blink of an eye. If you haven't done so already. Accept Jesus today. Let them. Walk with you. Guide you through this life. He'll bring you joy in this line. And then. He's going to welcome you home in the next life. Walk into any church. And the first person that you see. Tell them you want to accept Jesus now today. You're put a smile on their face. And they will. Welcome you.

"Welcome to the. Monitor daily podcast. It's Thursday march twelfth. Thanks for joining us by Nivo bought into acting. And I'm Ken Kaplan Tony. Gonzalez doesn't know where they all came from. But the roving bands of volunteers toting chainsaws. Were a welcome sight. Last week Tornados had just ripped through Middle Tennessee killing at least twenty four people and destroying and damaging hundreds of homes and businesses. His East Nashville home was spared but just a block away. Almost everything was destroyed. The Tornados came in the predawn hours of Tuesday march third and before the sun had even risen neighbors. Were already helping one another while reporting for the Tennessean. Emily West watched neighborhood come together in the dark to free an older couple that had been trapped in their home by debris and it just continued from there. The volunteer a neighbor to neighbor response has been totally epic says Mr Gonzalez reporter for the National Public Radio starting that first day people flocked in to help clear debris from homes and roads stations have been set up with supplies and food restaurants and food trucks including some that sustained damage. Themselves have been giving away food over the weekend. Some twenty two thousand volunteers showed up to help. I've always known that Nashville is giving and wonderful and that were a place where neighbors help neighbors no matter what Ms West says. But I've never believed more in the statement that we are Nashville now to our five stories which include probing. How Corona virus this shaping how Americans think about healthcare access the power of presidential messaging in a time of crisis and the role of transparency in building. Trust our first story. Partisan debate over healthcare has become deadlocked. The Corona virus has exposed the public health challenge in testing and treating individuals as well as the hardship of workers who lack paid sick. Leave the corona virus outbreak in the US has roiled businesses and workers alike but for tens of millions of workers who don't have sick leave it presents. An acute dilemma staying away from work because of illness or simply as a precaution means going without pay most rich industrialized countries require paid. Sick leave for workers. Moreover around thirty million Americans lack health insurance others have high deductible insurance plans that can lead to hesitation and getting tested and seeking treatment adding to the public health challenge of preventing a rapid and debilitating spread of the corona virus. This week major insurance said that they will cover the cost of testing for the virus as will federal health insurance programs and some companies that rely on hourly workers are changing their time off policies. So as not to penalize employees affected by the outbreak this flurry of responses along with emergency legislation under consideration in Washington could bring temporary relief. Congress agreed last year to extend sick leave to federal employees twelve states and the district of Columbia require all employers to do the same so far. The Corona virus pandemic has an ended the partisan divide over the overall failings of the US healthcare system in tackling such outbreaks. Washington's actions are more like a Natural Disaster Response Says G William Hoagland Senior Vice President at the bipartisan Policy Center in Washington. This story was reported by Francine Keefer in Pasadena and Scott Tyson in Seattle for the monitor laying fear and rallying. The Nation is a critical task for any leader at a time of crisis. But downplaying the challenge or misstating. Fundamental facts can severely undercut the public's confidence at a time of crisis one of the most effective things a president can do is speak to the nation directly in an effort to keep the public informed and allay fears but not all presidential addresses hit their mark when President Donald Trump spoke from the oval office Wednesday night about Corona virus. He appeared ill at ease. Misstating numerous aspects of his government's own plan and even sprinkling in campaign rhetoric. The speech was not reassuring says polite a professor of public service at New York University. It will not go down in history as one of the great moments of calm where the president has used his or her great skills that reassurance to get people to relax and say this is going to be okay. Perhaps Mr Trump's biggest challenge right now is a trust deficit given his own. Well established history of misstatements. All Presidents dissemble or lie at times but Mr Trump's verbal habits are unprecedented for an American president though perceived in sharply different ways depending on voters party affiliation since the start of the corona virus situation. Mr Trump has blamed fake news and the Democrat Party for trying to sell panic and hurt him politically. The story was reported by Linda. Feldmann in Washington for the Monitor ongoing Merckel has set the path of Germany and Europe for two decades. But with the chancellor's tenure nearing its end and her one time heir apparent now out the vision of Germany's future is suddenly unclear. Germany is at a political inflection point held by Chancellor Angela Merkel since two thousand. The once formidable Christian Democratic Union has presided over a prosperous. Germany that earned the world's respect now with Dr Miracles handpicked successor on a Greg. Crump KARN Bauer stepping down from party leadership in a battle for succession underway. The Path forward for Germany's political mainstream. Looked shaky. We'll Germany's next leader. Continuing his Merkel's risk of her status quo or will use the muscle that comes with being Europe's largest economy to chart a new course for the country and for Europe stamping out. The far right is a domestic challenge that could easily consume the leadership. It's rise in. Germany was enabled in part by the issue of migration in two thousand fifteen. Dr Merckel suspended a protocol about safe countries which ultimately led to one million refugees entering the country. There's also a feeling that Germany has long neglected domestic issues of great importance but at the same time Germany's role in foreign affairs has become a real concern. Attention to national security has slipped and Europe can no longer rely on the United States to police. The Middle East. This story was reported by Lenora. Chew in Berlin for the Monitor concerns about public. Trust in scientific expertise abound could increase transparency around research promote confidence in science when it comes to the scientific research that policymakers used to set rules. How much transparency is needed? That's the question that scientists at the Environmental Protection Agency are now grappling with in the face of a proposal that would require the agency to give preference to studies whose underlying data sets and models are publicly available when drafting environmental and public health regulations. The proposal titled Strengthening Transparency and Regulatory Science as a version of a rule. I suggested in two thousand eighteen since then it has drawn fire from critics who say that. It represents an attempt by the trump administration to Cherry pick scientific research to suit its political aims. Proponents of the rule see it as a safeguard to ensure trustworthy research. Many scientists agree that sharing raw data is in theory good for science but says Wendy Wagner a professor in the University of Texas School of Law. There are a lot of steps between that kind of idyllic and the abstract and mandating it as a prerequisite to considering the scientific information. The story was reported by EVA. Cokie for the Monitor for those feeling overwhelmed. By the news books can offer a means of contemplative escape the Monitor reviewers top ten books for March include a story that takes stuff of midlife misery and makes it much relatable but downright funny and a novel that we've issues of contemporary American racial identity into vivid urban fantasy see the full list at CS MONITOR DOT COM Now commentary on how to shed imperial instincts from the Monitor's editorial board in a few nations ancestors once ruled empires such as Russia and Iran. Leaders can't seem to shake historical memories of having once controlled lands that are now independent countries others like Germany have largely given up old impulses for imperial style power on Tuesday. The Netherlands provided an example of what a former colonizer can do to exert a different kind of influence through humility during his first visit Indonesia the Dutch king willem-alexander apologized for the excessive violence used by the Dutch Empire to hold onto its former colony for three hundred and fifty years. The Netherlands ruled what was then the Dutch east indies killing thousands in the late nineteen forties during the Indonesian war for independence. The world's era of colonization marginally ended by the late twentieth century. Yet in recent years Russia has retaken parts of Ukraine. Iran commands other parts of the Middle East by proxy militias and China has taken many islands far from its coast. When a former imperial power tries to clean up its past rather than recreate it. The world makes progress. The Dutch kings apology his an example. That's a wrap for the news.

So I got the covert test by Friday at 8 a.m. And it came back negative thankfully so I was off to call, you know, one of the first college football games of the year pretty exciting. How did the whole day go today? How was it different from other kind of opening days for you? Primarily different, you know with all of the protocols and procedures to get into the facility in the first place and then you know the birth of a crowd it was really just the cadets. So but that was about it. Other than that I felt like a game. What's the booth like are you guys like separated or is it pretty normal? You know, we were separated by long like six feet maybe even eight feet and there was like plexiglass between us. Oh, well, I'm just wondering I was like a former player, you know, the NFL is going to get started here coming this week just as a player. What would you like to be in place for you to kind of feel safe and to be able to go out there? What what is your perspective as a former player? Honestly, as long as there's daily testing I would feel extremely safe. Hm if I was a player right now, I mean daily testing You know, they're going to catch it before it would really spread plus, you know, I just don't think guys are going to really get into facility with all of the screening is all the protocols. They have a choice. I mean if you're going to get it you're going to get it when you're home, right, you know with your family wife and kids or whatever. And so I think now now the training camps over that's really going to be The Telltale sign that's really going to be the number one thing is going to be what these guys do when they're at home. I mean, what do you think about fans coming to the games? What's your take on that? I don't Have a problem with it just in the sense that you know, if it's 10% or five thousand people or whatever. The number is as long as they're wearing a mask and their social life distanced. I personally don't have a problem with it. Although I think it's probably hard for them to figure out how to do, you know probably hard to figure out how to do and decide who were the five thousand people and they were coming in. That's true. Yeah, how are you going to have you get to pick and choose everyone's going to want to go so I want to have you on today just to talk a little bit about your broadcasting experience. You play seven years in the NFL didn't you almost go down like the financial services kind of Route once you've retired almost the media thing almost didn't happen. Explain that all right. So, you know growing up. I always wanted to be a broadcaster and my dad is five nine hundred seventy pounds. So the last thing I thought I would be was an NFL offensive lineman. Really? Yeah when I was a young kid, I wanted to play in the NFL, but that Junior High High School was realistic and so I really focused more on, you know, just trying to be a broadcaster and I wanted to like go to Sarah to choose and work for ESPN or write for Sports Illustrated and then it became a much better player than I ever thought. I would be and you get to Princeton and I started getting recruited I go to Prince and you go to Princeton. Nobody talked about the media, you know to me like nobody talks about being a broadcaster. So I kind of forgot about it and I accepted a job with leaving Brothers on Wall Street. And then what happened was this is I ended up after that. I ended up, you know getting signed in the NFL. You know, I wasn't expecting that so I could see you at church now, I don't even then I would do different internships with commercial real estate or Merrill Lynch and I kind of thought I would get into Finance because so many of the guys and NFL like they all say they're going to be broadcasters, you know, they are all sit there going to be an announcer. So I just bought. All right, I went to Princeton. I got a good degree. My parents paid for it. I can do one of these other jobs quote-unquote real jobs, right? But then before my last year, I didn't know it was going to be my last year. But before my last year, I watched the broadcasting boot camp and it went really well and then what happened was I I got hurt my career ended. I told Peter Chang I wanted to write so he told me to suck everything I had during training camp, but I could write about what happened. Well, I wrote about getting hurt and my career being over and I end up getting a bunch of gigs just from that. So I still thought welcome to the broadcasting boot camp, but I would get into finance and then I would go and and maybe to the Princeton games on the radio or something, but instead yep. Job offers from like Sports Illustrated and Comcast and SiriusXM pretty much right after I wrote that article for Peter cave amazing. So it was amazed like two weeks after I the rights because no former players actually, right that's kind of taking advantage of an opportunity their way to make you stand out that Was the idea right? It was like how could I differentiate myself? All right, you know went to Princeton had to write all these super long papers right for college. I can pull a thousand words on what it's really like to be caught or when it's really like to be in a locker room or whatever explain the broadcast boot camp. What does that like so used to always feeling of fulfillment of Mount Laurel New Jersey recently, they've actually moved it out to Bowling Green University, but it's basically like a three-day seminar where you get to learn what being a broadcaster really is like what it entails so that you know, if it's something you definitely want to do definitely don't want to do cuz I think a lot of guys think it's what they want to do. So this gives you the opportunity to know whether or not it's what you really want to do. You said you started writing we've heard you on the radio seeing you on TV. Is there one that you prefer doing over the birth. What do you what's your favorite thing to do? No, I mean I United game atmosphere Not knowing what's going to happen and and all that stuff.

Nashville is also home to Tennessee. State University, Fisk University and Mary Medical College all three, historically black colleges and universities. The latter two were founded in the decade after the civil war, and there's also vanderbilt named after an American millionaire who provided its initial endowment. His name is all over town including the various vanderbilt medical facilities that serve the city. It's a music town, a college town, an everlasting tourist attraction and a city that's faced numerous natural disasters. Nashville has seen floods, a collapsed reservoir, tornadoes, fire and heat waves, blizzards and earthquakes when it comes to states of emergency. Nashville Tennessee has been host to more than its fair share of trouble. Nineteen Ninety eight was a particularly bad year. On April Fifteenth April sixteenth of that year, deadly Tornados swept through the southeast. Much of the damage was concentrated in Tennessee and Mississippi on April. Sixteen th at about five PM. Downtown Nashville was hit according to the Atlanta. Journal constitution quote. Tornado roared down music row, sending tourist, running for cover that tornado quote touchdown in Centennial Park before cutting a pack clean through downtown Nashville. The damage was extensive, uprooted trees, crushed power lines, residential homes government buildings. The AJC reported that the tornado even quote, rip the seal off the state flag. It hit retail stores Honky tonks in the football stadium where residents saw parts of the structure quote being tossed around. Let popsicle sticks. A reporter for the Tennessean described. The aftermath is chaotic lights down residents driving recklessly through intersections strewn with debris. At least one hundred people were injured, and one was killed a student from Vanderbilt University. Per the Jackson Sun he was quote crushed underneath the tree in centennial. Park according to the article, there had been no tornado siren to warn residents to take cover. All told Nashville face roughly seven million dollars worth of damage. Different media outlets gave varying totals for the cost in the number of injured, but they all agreed. The city was seriously impacted. A. State of emergency was declared the Boston. Globe reported that then Vice President Al Gore went down to Tennessee to view the aftermath. East Nashville, the hardest hit, saw massive recovery and cleanup efforts in the days following the storm. A twenty, thirteen Tennessee and retrospective recalls the former National Mayor Phil Gresson quote personally directed traffic as cleanup trucks rolled through. The destruction would take weeks to assess. Contain Andrew Perr. And, it wasn't limited to Nashville much of Tennessee, have been hit in the following weeks Tennessee. News was dominated by that storm. The repairs the stretched thin public services the first responders. And maybe that's why. One of the reasons why the body found in North Nashville just a few days before the tornadoes hit got so little press. That discovery came on Monday April thirteenth, nineteen ninety eight, a cool clear morning in Nashville. It was around eight am that someone called the police to report the? The collar lived on Mary Street. A. Dead End Road in North Nashville. The street runs up against interstate to sixty five where patchy woods meet the road barrier and back then there were a few vacant lots at the end of the road to so no direct neighbors where the street ran into the embankment. According to the Tennessean that particular spot was known as a convenient place to abandon strip cars. Mary Street was reportedly popular with sex workers to, and it wasn't unusual for residents to see cars on the street at all hours. Her, the Tennessean residents had heard a car early on the morning of the thirteenth at around five am nothing remarkable there as noted the streets traffic, but as the sun rose, it became evident that something happened left behind something burning. A crime stoppers bulletin published later that summer. A Mary Street residents saw a rolled up beige carpet at the end of her road. It was still smoldering. And wrapped inside that charred material was the body. The victim was so profoundly burned that per the Tennessean first responders could not guess at race, gender or age or cause of death. The fire hadn't spread, but kerosene sprayed on the carpet had created a very intense heat, and yet no one had heard a thing. As reporter John Yates pointed out the traffic from highly to sixty five would probably have drowned out quote more suspicious sounds. Police arrived, and the scene was photographed and processed, but it would take a medical examination to determine more about the victim. The police report is brief quote. The body was found in a prone face up position at the dead end of Mary Street in North. Nashville at the time of this report body could not be identified. Having been burnt beyond recognition, the body was transported episode Bessie for further examination. The case remains open as of April thirteenth nineteen. Ninety eight at fifteen hundred hours. Hours then there were two articles at least that we found published on the discovery of this victim. They are also brief the Tennesseans. Initial report didn't contain the information about the carpet. Likely that detail hadn't been released to the press at the time of publication. Perhaps there would have been a follow up as soon as the coroner's report was in. Had there not been a dramatic change to the Nashville New Cycle? The Tennessee tornadoes came in the case disappeared from the local papers. There was much to report on the state and in Mississippi, and beyond, and so that report from April fourteen remained the only spring coverage. The body found that Mary. Street in that, there were virtually no identifying details nothing to help a family recognize. Their missing loved one in the description. Only upon the publication of crime stoppers bulletin in July was more known about the victim. According to the bulletin, the Mary St Victim with a black male between eighteen and twenty, five old, his body had been profoundly burned and postmortem. Examiners were able to give an approximate height of about five eleven in a weight range of one hundred fifty to one hundred sixty pounds, though not in the paper, a source who has seen the autopsy told us that the cause of death was listed as blunt force trauma to the head and according to our source, a toxicology report was run the victim. The results showed that no controlled substances were in a system. The examiner was able to distinguish some details of the young man's clothing. A pullover shirt blue jeans. A Maroon CPO Zipper style jacket with Y. K. K. displayed on it and sandals. The clothing. Details were specific enough that someone hopefully could have recognized them. But, no identification came eventually the unidentified victims remains would either need to be interred, cremated or stored for testing in Nashville. Unidentified persons are generally buried. Every city has so called Potter's fields or cemeteries or Where public burials are conducted? These public burials are funded by the city because of a deceits lack of funds, unknown identity or unclaimed status, historically criminals might also be buried in Potter's fields, sometimes like other citizens in unmarked plots that might or might not be recorded in a log. These public burial grounds usually exist within or adjacent to traditional cemeteries where there are plots that are also privately and the twentieth and twenty first centuries Nashville's in the or proper burials have occurred in various cemeteries and on county owned land throughout the city. In some cases, there are not individual grave markers whether the descendants identity was known or unknown. Now the process is overseen by Metro. Social Services specifically indigent burial and cremation services. The eligibility for assistance is outlined on their website. The office works to provide plots, caskets, and grave markers, residents of Davidson county or those who died while in Nashville. The Tennessean newspaper that spotlighted the program on a few occasions, and it's program manager. A woman named Carol Wilson. tro Boorda cemetery is one of the sites of Nashville's indigent burials. A two thousand fourteen, Tennessee in article describes the area as industrial, and the graveyard is home to a thousand people who were interred via metro social services. Maps showed that the entrance to the cemetery is off the main road on the way to the main building of a local water treatment plant. The Tennessee notes that Metro social services made use of Bordeaux cemetery from nineteen, eighty, six, until two thousand and three Bordeaux has attracted a number of find grave contributors who have photograph nearly a thousand of the markers in the cemetery, both the indigent burials section and in the main burial area. When such photo on the website shows the entrance to the Potter's field or the name? Plates are flush with the ground. That section is marked by a granite memorial bearing the following words. Bordeaux Cemetery Rest with us here at the stone or poverty and suffering are not known. Dedicated to the deceased citizens of Nashville Davidson. County who rest with us here. It was then board that the unidentified victim found on Mary Street in April of Nineteen Ninety. Eight was buried unlike many victims we've covered. His remains were not cremated. Upon his interment, a marker was placed. John Do Nineteen. Per the Tennesseans, Brian has quote. He was the nineteenth unidentified man buried in the Bordeaux Cemetery. He lies and plot five fifty, five, a grave, overlooking the whites creek. We water treatment plant. We are not sure of the precise day of John Nineteen burial. The tornado came just three days after his body was found, and there would have been an autopsy and required records to file, and all of that would have been slowed down by the city storm damage. But based on information from social services. We know the intern happen sometime in May assuming that John DOE. Nineteen was local to the city. Exactly how many young black men were missing that? April in Nashville, how much could did the storm impact? The public's awareness that body have been found. Did anyone missed the news? Due to a lack of power that would have signaled that the man could be their missing son or brother or friend. Her the two thousand Census David County had an African American population of roughly twenty seven percent, young black men and John. Doe Nineteen Age Range of eighteen to twenty five. They numbered in the thousands. We can't say precisely. How many young adult black males were reported missing nine, hundred, Ninety eight? There aren't public records of clear cases, and as our audience knows most missing persons reports are eventually closed. But we can access the cases that are still open the cold ones now present as entries in public databases when the parameters are limited to a five year span, Namus lists exactly four missing black men from the Greater Nashville area you further narrow the search and nineteen ninety eight Namus returns exactly one case. The missing person in question is a young man named Marcus Rutledge, who was last seen by his family in June of ninety eight, so he couldn't have been John Nineteen, but his family and authorities feared that he too was a homicide victim. Marcus was twenty three years old at the time of his disappearance and a senior at Tennessee State University where he majored in biology, according to the Charlie Project, he actually planned on a career as a patron narian, which is why his family was so concerned when they found his dog locked in an apartment bathroom without food or water. It just wasn't something that Marcus would do, and there were no signs that he gone on a trip. Though. His car was eventually found across town. Markets remained missing. While! Unsolved disappearances were comparatively rare in Nashville. There was plenty to keep law enforcement busy. The nineteen nineties were hard on the city and the effects of crime at some communities harder than others. All told there were ninety nine homicides in Nashville in nineteen ninety eight. John Doe. Nineteen was unusual in that his identity remained unknown, but he shared three common factors with a number of years other homicide victims. He was young. He was black. He was male. According to a long-term study conducted by the Tennessee Department of Health, which covered the years nineteen, ninety, five to two thousand and two quote among fifteen to thirty four year old African American males homicide was the leading cause of death responsible for thirty four percent of deaths in this age group. The study also found that across the board. Black men and boys had the lowest life expectancies of populations living in the metropolitan areas of Tennessee. A two thousand eighteen study found bet across the United States quote Non Hispanic Black men were nearly ten point four times more likely than non Hispanic white men to die by homicide in the US. That, reality isn't reflected in the media that we consume. The white women are at the forefront of true crime entertainment, their statistically much less likely to be murdered, both in Tennessee and across the nation. Her. The Tennessee Department of Health Study on the State's population quote based on two thousand and one to two thousand and three data, African American males, each fifteen to twenty four died from homicide at a rate that is more than thirty one times that of white females. When it came to covering the city's victims, Nashville's local paper actually had much more coverage than in many cases. We've researched in the nineteen ninety S. the Tennessean ran regular features on unsolved homicides and based on what we saw. The paper seems to have highlighted diverse victims and families affected by rising violence. Nineteen ninety, five and nineteen, ninety-seven were Nashville's worst years. Though homicides were comparatively high in nineteen, ninety, six, thousand, nine, Ninety Eight leaders were concerned, and the police were stretched then, and there was the worry as a tourist town of developing a reputation. As one city officials told the Tennessean in Nineteen ninety-seven quote. Nobody wants to see music city become murder city. In nineteen, ninety seven, the Tennessean reported that some big cities were seeing a decrease in crime, but Nashville wasn't so lucky. The city was facing what the paper described as quote. Killing almost every third day reporter John Yates who covered crime for the Tennessean throughout the Nineteen Nineties interview detectives who said by Nineteen Ninety-seven? They were sometimes quote juggling five murder cases at once. According to Yates the city put various plans into action from citizen committees to participation in a national program called officer next door per yates. Nineteen ninety-seven article on the subject of the program encouraged law enforcement officers to buy homes in high crime areas at quote, half, market, value, and some neighborhoods law enforcement provided retailers with emergency bieber's to summon police. In? October nineteen, Ninety, eight, Tennessee and article mentioned something called Flex Teams, which were small groups of officers that could be dispatched quickly by precinct captains to combat neighborhood crime, and in nineteen, ninety eight Metro Nashville police expanded what they called their murder squad along with increased homicides, case clearance rates had also fallen a cause of concern for the Metro Nashville. Police Department Nashville had begun the decade with a higher than average software eight. The Tennessean reported at eighty seven percent, but by nineteen ninety seven. Seven that percentage had fallen to quote just under seventy and asked reporter John Yates pointed out caseload had doubled in that time. He interviewed a Metro Nashville captain who pointed out a problem that was facing every growing city. What the captain called quote mystery murders though he doesn't elaborate. The concept is a common truth. Disgust in true crime circles, the more people, the more roads in the more access, the lower the likelihood that a victim can be traced to a suspect and a need straight line. So Nashville major growth and part due to the arrival of the Houston oilers football team who relocated to Nashville in nineteen ninety-five, but the decade was also hard as we said in nineteen, Ninety eight, the year John Doe Nineteen was found there were ninety nine murders of those homicides twenty one would still be unsolved by January of Nineteen, Ninety nine, the Tennessee and provided a long feature article on those unsolved sides with each victim discussed by name this piece also by reporter. John Yates includes John Doe Nineteen and the years other unidentified victim, a woman shot and left in the Cumberland River. There are listed along Nashville citizens. The majority of whom were shot in many cases, burglary or robbery are listed as the motive, though many are labeled as quote motive on. An elderly couple Clayton North Smith were shot in their home by a man in an army type uniform. A young woman named Caroline. Fisher was strangled and left along interstate forty. The skeletal remains missing mother forty four year old. Donna far were discovered in a wooded area. Terrence teasingly twenty one was shot. No Suspects Kevin Carter Twenty one shot motive, unknown German banks, twenty six shot robbery, and the list goes on. The victim show pattern of particular intent, different races, ages areas of town, but for each case marked motive, unknown bears an example of that mystery murder phenomenon, no clear treadle follow perhaps no answers forthcoming. Of the twenty one then unsolved homicides five took place in April, but only to occurred within a week of the tornado. There was John Doe Nineteen on April Thirteen, and then there was Jeffrey Davis. who was shot on April seventeen? Davis was found on Garfield. Street just about half a mile away from Mary, Street, where John Doe Nineteen's body was recovered, both victims were found close to I two sixty five. Davis was found bleeding on the sidewalk and later died at Vanderbilt, hospital. To the best of our knowledge Davis's murder remains unsolved. With the victim known as John Doe, Nineteen though detectives were looking at what were essentially two different cases, identifying the victim and catching the suspect. We were able to speak with retired. Nashville detective Larry Flair, who worked on the department's murder squad in the nineteen nineties. For a brief time, he was actually the lead detective on John Doe Nineteen Case. We asked him to walk us through how they would have approached the case of an unidentified homicide victim especially in the days that came before the tornado. He told us that pre-planning was essential that the murder squad had a number of procedures in place to help them quickly gather as much information as possible. He also walked us through use of a regional teletype system essentially, NC, icy focused on a particular state. In this case Tennessee well in my career when we first formed our squad in Nashville, we actually. put all of our heads together and got a checkless and the checkless. Consist of at least a hundred and fifty different things everything from date and approximate time that we felt at the time of of being notified. All the way through the other one, hundred, fifty or sixty. Including weather temperature. Outside, all types of of samples or or extracted from if we're outside, I'll types of forensic stuff that is gathered by our forensic team and and such. All the way down to once we if it was determined honing unidentified. Person that we felt was missing. Are we found out that somebody was on the missing person? Be Poor. And that's where we would follow up and when you've got a body with no identification. You keep that in a lot of Pronto with own front page. That's everything we got, and you get someone out to eat with paperwork on them deals or something like that. It might not even be there. So you treat each one of these victims is. If they're practically possibly not the person you feel that they are, they could be an unidentified individual so. That's that's the teamwork that we had at the Nashville during that era in the unidentified cases that I worked. I depended. Tremendously own the organization. It's called R. O. C. I see. That's real organization crime. Information Center. And we. Is detected, that utilized the. We'll see I see we would Author I complete. Actual part of everything that we knew of the unidentified person, we would pour that into their system. And their system along with their antlers. Would Dan You know complete searches and any other type of situations that might match up. Now in this particular case. We didn't get anything back on this victim. Entire file on that and that alone with the RMC. Unfortunately it was. They had a regional office there in Nashville made it. Much easier than we gained a relationship and there was different professionals over there. So, they're just wearing missing young adult black males who met the aging in? Physical criteria. That at that time, because each and every hit that we would just it would be closed when we would follow up on it. That's my memory. Is that They were definitely not in the criteria where it of been either in Nashville or The age group or different things of that nature so everything in. We weren't able to get anything of value, but it helped us cancel so many others as well. Larry told us that they would employed in CIC to to run national and sometimes even international checks. They would have had the basic victim description back from the coroner on an average case within a day or two, and sometimes it has little as seven hours, the official report would come much later, but as with the Glenn County Jane Doe the Medical Examiner would have prioritize giving law enforcement basic. They needed to begin sorting through missing persons reports. So with that in mind, the first check through the system would have likely come on April fourteenth, though we can't be certain detective Larry Flair left the homicide squad in July of Nineteen, ninety eight, so he can't speak to how the case eventually unfolded, but he was involved in the retrieval of evidence evidence that Metro Nashville would explore over the next two decades. And the murder squad would have worked John. Nineteen case throughout the spring of Nineteen Ninety eight, but would have also experienced the same shutdowns as the rest of the city when the tornado hit on April sixteenth. How much did the storm impact the search for the victim and the killer? And a two thousand and thirteen article on the case, law enforcement related the effort to Tennessean. Reporter Brian Haas Haas reported that quote. Sergeant Gary Kemper who now leads Metros Cold Case Unit, said detectives worked feverishly. They developed persons of interest, even went out of state to conduct interviews, but the case went cold, two thousand and one, and they never identified John Doe Nineteen and quote. No. There have been a few studies that concerned the combination of natural disaster and crime, but most focus on crimes that occur after a disaster, and who was most vulnerable, and which predators might take advantage of long-term chaos like the multiple serial killers, adding Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina. What's much harder to quantify though is how a natural disaster might affect an ongoing case, we can offer a study on that phenomenon, but we do know of a single specific example from the week of the Nashville. Tornado. There was a missing persons report filed on April. Fifteenth Nineteen Ninety eight two days after. After John Doe Nineteen was found one day before the tornado hit. The report identified the missing person as the Ryan. Nicholson of North Nashville. He was described as an eighteen year old black male, according to the incident report law. Ryan was last seen by his mother. Sylvia on April Twelfth Nineteen. Ninety Eight, the report mentions that he was living with his uncle on Jefferson Street, but that's not quite right. He was actually staying with his mother and regularly visited his uncle's apartment. His mother and uncle reported that they last seen him on Sunday afternoon when he left the House on foot. The responding officer noted that Lou Ryan was on quote medication to treat schizophrenia and quote known to smoke marijuana. We don't know why the latter is included unless it was discussed in response to a routine question about medications and substance, issues. Ryan Nicholson was a native of Nashville. He'd grown up pretending. It's public schools and participating in civic programs. His name appeared in the local paper a few times before that April when he disappeared. Pearl Cohn High School. He'd been talented athlete, running track and placing several races that were reported in the regional sports section. He was fifteen then and a lot would change over the next three years. The Police Department's report lists Lorraine as six foot, one in one hundred and fifty pounds with black hair and Brown eyes, his mother and uncle said he was last seen in a white shirt, bluejeans, black nikes and a black hat. There's not mention of a jacket or what style of Nikes sneakers or slip on sandals that the Ryan had on. It for recall John. Doe Nineteen was described as a black male eighteen to twenty, five, approximately five eleven, and somewhere around one hundred fifty pounds. John DOE nineteen clothing was badly damaged, but the medical examiner with make bluejeans sandals scowl shoes and a Maroon jacket. We don't have access to the report, so we can only say. The shirt was pullover style meaning without buttons most likely that minute t shirt. Minor discrepancies aside the descriptions of the Ryan Nicholson and John Doe, nineteen or similar, certainly similar enough to suggest a comparison should be made for a few days. Laurent's case was open alongside John Doe Nineteen's Lorraine went missing on the twelfth, and was reported as such on the fifteenth. John. Doe and Nineteen was found on the thirteenth less than a day after Sylvia. The Ryan's mother said she had last seen him. Laurent's case would have been active for about twenty four hours before the Nashville Tornado hit. So there were four days before his case was closed that a comparison might have been made if anyone was actively working cases at that time when a state of emergency have been declared. There's an addendum Tila Ryan's missing persons report on a separate page that provides some vital additional information on April. Twentieth Nineteen, Ninety, eight, a person called the Metro Nashville Police Department and reported that the Ryan Nicholson had returned home. His case was summarily quote closed by exception. After April Twentieth Nineteen. Ninety eight. There was no missing. Persons Report to compare to John Nineteen whose identity was still being sought. Of his family. Only the Ryan's mother and uncle knew he was missing. That weakened April of Nineteen Ninety eight. They were not contacted when the case was closed. And the Ryan Gender. Sister Amira and his step sister candace. They weren't sharing a home with him at that time, and they weren't aware of his daily comings and goings. Lorraine's father, who lived out of state, was similarly unaware of a son's daily movements and candice and Amirah. They didn't know that a missing persons report have been filed in the first place, so they didn't know it had been closed either five days after Ryan's mother reported his absence, and they didn't know the woman who'd phoned. Metro Nashville police her the police report the caller had identified herself as hauling venable and claimed she was a neighbor of Law Ryan's. She was no relation to family. We know that when there's an unidentified victim, law enforcement starts close to home looking through the city's own missing persons reports Nashville had certainly done that and would do that in the future. In fact, we came across a number of articles, discussing attempts and other cases to match human remains to missing persons reports. One in particular that stood out, was the skeleton of a man found in two thousand and one wants. Those bones were discovered. They were quickly compared to the medical records of a missing local Man Rodney Woodard Rodney was reported missing by his girlfriend in nineteen, ninety seven, when the skeletal remains discovered in two thousand and one police conducted to DNA tests, but were unable to match although Rodney, woodard met the parameters of our Nima search a-block male who disappeared in the years directly surrounding nineteen, Ninety Eight. He didn't appear in the results. He does have one mention on the Charlie project, but we can't find any documents on his case past two thousand and one. It's unclear whether his disappearance still unsolved. And as far as other open cases go. There was another man who might have been compared to the skeletal remains found in two thousand and one Marcus Rutledge the Tennessee state senior. We mentioned earlier in the episode whether he was compared. We can't say, but we know. The remains would not be compared to Laurent Nicholson. After all his case would've been closed for several years, and as for John Doe Nineteen. Metro Nashville gleese would still be seeking the homicide victims identity the next year and the next and the next. It would be fifteen years until the cold case of John Doe nineteen collided with the detective work of two sisters who had been asking and eventually looking for their missing brother Laurent. They hadn't spoken to him. Since April of Nineteen, ninety, eight, Amiram was just twelve that year felt his loss keenly. And also felt sure that big brother wouldn't have abandoned her. Here's what she told us an interview the spring. I'm telling you it's. It's unlike him to not call anybody. He would have reached out so one of us. You know one or the other would have heard from him by now all this time. He would've call somebody. He didn't even show up. I knew something was definitely wrong because the year that he went missing ninety eight, my sister. My Dad's daughter was graduating from high school, and they had the graduation on the football field at Pearl Cohn. He loves US school. You know and I'm sure that he knew that that she graduated because they would have been graduating in the same year, and I lived for him and our crowd. I'm like I. Know I'm GonNa see him standing somewhere. I can't wait, gets it his graduation and I looked and looked, and he never showed. A never saw. Even up until my graduation when I graduated in two thousand four from high school. I just knew he was going to be there. I was GONNA see him. He's GonNa pop up after all these years. Never saw. Next time on the fall line will bring you part two in the series on the Ryan Nicholson. Again in Nineteen Ninety eight with the story of Law Ryan and two sisters, and the strange call close his case, and how it all intersected with the unidentified victim known as John Doe Nineteen.

A lot of conference openers across the country and more will becoming over the next few weeks I wanNA talk with somebody from a conference that I cover a lot and that's conference. Usa and we talk to the head coach of the Marshall. Thundering Herd Tony Kemper Coach Campers in his third year and after a struggle of a first season with Marshall. He really turned the corner with this program last year. In a second season they had a winning record. They won ten games in conference. Usa play. They got some big time. Winds Middle Tennessee has been a thorn in the side of Marshall over the course of time and they got a big win over. Middle Tennessee Several other marquee wins along the way as well. Marshall was a tough out last year all along the way made it onto the postseason went to the WB. I want a game on the road before falling to the eventual champion. Appalachian State really a banner ear for Tony. Camper's club and now this season they are trying to see what kind of team they have as they enter conference play and had of a road trip to Texas that sees Marshall play rice in North Texas. This week I got to talk to the head coach of the Marshall Thundering herd so enjoy my chat with Tony Kemper. Let's appreciate having absolutely and how you ended up becoming the head. Coach of Marshall is certainly an interesting story. This is your first head coaching job. As far as the the division one level but You earn assistant for many years and ended up getting the job there in Marshall Wants your previous head coach. Matt Daniel moved on from the position and you worked with him in a couple of stops along the way right. Yeah that's right and I can have a winding winding road to get where I got. Which is not unlikely and in the coaching profession Started off in high school on kind of worked my way through things inside before looking over to women and Like you said with coach Daniel move from We're at Central Arkansas together. It's quite a bit of success. There were fortunate land. The Marshall Job who's West Virginia and You know worked for him. I GUESS FOR FIVE YEARS. Very appreciative of the fact that you know Marshall had kind of done their homework on me in terms of What they felt like I was maybe from. Ah a support role and there's a lot of times when that kind of stuff doesn't happen and look for a name or something like that but you know certainly appreciate the fact that they keep the tires on me. It's like I was the right right person for the job. And Shar fortunate to be competing every day and in What is the great great dream job for a guy will form from from Western Kansas to get coach division one in cafetiere sites that a lot of fun a lot of fun to huge challenge and one that? I certainly enjoy absolutely. I remember reading something talking about you. Getting the head coaching job when Daniel moved on that the girls were really supportive of you getting job. How much did that mean to you? And as far as you know. How much did that have an effect on you eventually getting appointed to the position? I think it mattered. You know I think You notice unique a lot of times when you when you get your first job. Usually it is with a group of people that you don't know that much about I had obviously been involved in a lot of the recruiting of of the young ladies in our program for many years. A lot of so head gets me already with them. does very fortunate with coach. Daniel that I was on the floor and active and they were smart voice. So they're used to my way of doing things and you know that kind of stuff so that that was great and I definitely think that You know it was one of the factors that helped push me to ultimately to the top list for Marshall. I think my report with our players and Definitely it was staff and people at Marshall is a special place in terms of the people there and you know my family. It's it's a family oriented place and a wife teaches at Marshall. And there's there's many many things like that Kinda go in. I think ultimately the decision. But I think there's a lot of things on my side. I think the relationships with our players in the community I think battered well is Matt moved on. Obviously you being under him and with him and influential in his coaching style. For however many years it was as an assistant. I'm sure there is a lot of meshing there too but once you had the rains. How much did what you did. Xs and Os wise at Marshall. Change if at all I've worked for a lot of really good coaches have been around a lot of really good coaches. So there's there's a little bit of You know there's not A. I fell off a couple of different trees. I guess you'd say. In terms of by coachie philosophy. I played under the kind of North Carolina Secondary. Break that type of scheme So that was kind of my first as a player. That's what I've played in my first coaching. Jobs render that You know that I worked for a guy on the inside. Iran Chapel at Central Arkansas. Who Coach Center Charlie Spoon our Um at Missouri state which is very defensive oriented May van offensive control but so I worked in that style And then working for Matt. He he really. He likes to play up and Daddy. He's always liked to shoot. Three's coming with that Marshall Kinda got US connected with with Dan. Tony you know. Watching is men's teach practice. We were running out of a ball screen. Tom Moody Office a lot when we got there. And we sort of moved into that in a free-flowing ball street stuff that You know we get down stairs and watch pretty good coaching clinic every day. When it goes to Tony's put it on so we do that then left. Kinda more into we run quite a bit of Chin stuff And kind of added in a little bit more year-by-year I guess is a little bit more familiar with it. So I guess my style's a little bit of everything Try to figure out the best way for the team that we have to be successful and get to get the kids in the right spots and I think that's something that were still working on this year. Absolutely we're talking with Tony. Kemp the head coach of Marshall. Now obviously it like you said you play and you you mold that That style of play to toward the players. You have. How unique is far as players? That you've ever coached. Was Shane Gore. The player that graduated last year in in helped lead you guys to a really good season in her senior year. She's she's a tremendous score. There will be I probably will coach very many or if any is gifted she is you know taking the ball and making some APP for you. That's part of the reason why we pretty thirty ball screen free slowly last year. She's a little bit like an artist. You gotta let her go lower pay you gotta let her do her saying at times you gotTa Rainer in a Little Bit. But there's a lot of times when our best offenses you know trying to figure out where she wants the ball and the ball screen or not and You know runner off a lot of screens chic and absolutely up. And you know she can hit fade away and she can do different things that you don't see a lot more game and She certainly had a great senior year. Happy for her that that she really helped us. Go out you know. She was able to go out with Actually wooden more conference. Usa Games than they've ever wanted Marshall We tied for fifth in the League. Played in the WBZ WANNA game on the road. So I was happy for that senior class. Shayna INSA mothers that they were able to go out winners. Another one of those players was Taylor as well and I think I remember from her that she was like twenty four and she played like you know the through injuries and probably like almost six years of college basketball experience. So when you've got Gore and then you've got Florida and now you turn the page where you do have a lot of returners back but two key fundamental pieces of your team from last year. How tough has that been for your current group of young ladies to You know kind of make their own style and make it work early this year. I think that's been. That's been one of our challenges you know I think we We lost a couple of games early that we very well might have got beat if we went back to play again but I think we sort of were looking in the huddle for you know who is going to be the one that steps up and takes shot and you know I think that may be of the The alpha dog a little bit. Was there early on in the season. I think that we've improved at that Do believe word improving basketball team. I think you know and I tell her girls right now like we don't have a lot to show for that but I do feel like they're getting a lot better. You know our last game before the break against on the road against house at which tasks very talented team We hung in there to write a hit. Hit A buzzer. Three on us. It's But but I feel like they're going back to your question. I think I think that's a fair point with this group and I think they I do not think that at the end of the day. There's a lot of talent difference but I do think that there's a void in leadership. It's kind of unfair to the team now. I think they're hard workers and I think they're working through their developing all those things that You Know Shane. Teepee and the chemistry of that group last year worked at becoming. You know we're right in the middle of that same thing. The other thing I tell them to is that that group did not Joe until until really conference play. You know we had our bumps in the road early the season and they kept after and they they kept grinding. It's a long season and boy. They they figured some things out conference player. We got on a nice run Proud for that but there is this team that we've got right now is growing. They're they're trying to figure it out. I've got a lot of Got a lot of positive things to say about him and yet also reform starts maybe making a few more play so they could feel a little bit better about the result. I hear you there coach and You know one thing I noticed about your team last year is you guys were about as close and you you know you mentioned this when he talked about the influence of having coach. Antoni there You know officing basically next to you guys and things like that. You're about as close to a position. Lewis free flowing offense an NBA style or wnba style. That you're going to see in conference USA at this at this point at not being able to see you guys so far this year. How how close is is that This year to to what you were last year. Well we're a little bit more traditional this year. You know we've got what we the reason. We went to that pretty much fulltime last year was we are starting center of guests. Her first two years of College Ashley. Saint Jean Basically we Shoes complications from a knee injury. We put on the shelf right right at the conference. Play in that really turned us into. I have no idea if the status correct but we will probably the small country vitamins. I don't. I've never seen anybody smaller that you know. We basically started everybody under five ten and They were scrappy. They were tough We could really stretch the floor. We the game with five shooters. That doesn't mean everybody that we put in to chew. But you know we can spaced it and made you guard a lot of people on the perimeter and then we had enough toughness on the inside that there wasn't any nights that we really got pounded inside it a little bit more traditional this year And yet will. We'll play that small ball a little bit subsidies and We we've gotta you gotTa play Monday. Macos Asia Brooks who? She's fifth year senior right now. She she makes a lot of that stuff. Go from an office perspective. She's been in our system for a long time superstar basketball player. You can kind of basically can run our offense we. I gave you everything we run earlier. And it's not it's not one or two things. We run a lot of different stuff and she can kinda basically run it from every position to have somebody like that Super Versatile on the offense really helps she can make three so she stretches the floor that we kind of have one of those defense to appear. Does that same stuff for somebody. Says she can probably guard one guard five. If you have people like that it allows you to play. Position was and and do a lot of difficult so we will You know I don't exactly know what the spread is Were a little bit you know last year we were kind of a one trick pony. We had to win that way. This year The you know we've probably looked at match ups and we'll what we felt like was advantageous for us. It's kind of the way so one of the things I wanted to ask you about is at her hoop stats. Were all about stats. And we like you know kind of diving into the stats and one of the things especially against We'll look at all your games against Division One opponents this year so in the Games Against Division. One teams this year. You guys get forty percents of your points from outside the three point line. So the the three point line leads to forty percent of your points which is Eleventh in the country right now according to our stats is that a positive stat in your estimation. Is that how you want things done? Yes yeah I mean you know? Generally I I am a image that guy and there's also some I'm also not a complete sell out to either. I do think it's do you think one of the things that we figured out over time at Marshall is we can probably recruit quite a few Young ladies from our area that can shoot it and therefore you know was among the road tonight talking to you driving four and a half hours to go watch high school game and we can't we don't have the luxury of having twenty million people within a hour and a half radius of of our camp some more so we've got to branch out but one of the things that is around there. We've got some pretty good skill players around there so You know that's one of the things you know you talk about Shayna Report of those girls were elite shooters and at the same time we can. We have been able to find five ten five eleven tough once they constructed Florin make threes. And so yeah over time. I've developed into a coach that likes to shoot three And I think there's a lot of influences in there including you know coach. Dan Tony's one of the leading analytic guys in on the inside and opposition to talk Tony about the difference. Between the I guess the value of a post op generally speaking value of three. And things like that and I think when you look at our numbers It holds true in a pretty significant way that that's more way for us to play and it's not saying I know you're not saying this at all but it's it's really it's really interesting. How you know things are certainly trending that way but then you look at Baylor and they hardly shoot threes at all. You know last year and they breezed through everybody. It's just it's just amazing. There is more than one way to skin. A cat but But at the same time you gotTa do what works best for what you can recruit and I think it's an excellent point. I tell us about because I'm just really interested coach. You know you're there for several years before you end up taking on the the head job at Marshall What do you like about the area? What is your family like about the area because I know you. Have you know a young family and those formidable years there? There are a few years you start to get stability and then You know you wonder if that's if that's GONNA keep. Why was it the right thing to to stay in Huntington well? It was a great opportunity for number. One is great when we moved there. We moved there from Central Arkansas to Marshall and is a good step up for me in the same role that I was in at Central Arkansas and the two slide over to this share marshals of really hunting communities are really special place that place really really care about Marshall. Athletics and I am A. It's it's a college town. I think that is. It's a lot of fun to coach at a place like that. You know when we when you go to our games when we're role you go to Football Games. People really care about and we. We don't share chance with other state institutions are professional teams. And things like that you either you either four Marshall around there you're not and That makes it a really special place to coach And then it's a good. I'm a I'm a grew up in a really small town in Western Kansas And it is a IT'S FAMILY ORIENTED PLACE. It is big enough. There's plenty for my wife and I and our kids to do and they busy with their little sports and different things like that. They're all growing up my wife carts around everywhere but at the same time it's not it's not a huge place it's a place that You know we certainly enjoyed making friends here. It's been a great move for us a great opportunity. I'm very very thankful you know like I said earlier to sit in a chair. That we we definitely we definitely bleed green in our family or boys you're decked out in more stuff every day that they have a blast with it you know I think they they understand how special it is that you know when I grew up I barely got in the gym at the local high school. That said stead seating about five hundred of their their typical Sunday afternoon. As they go Jim Anderson Center with the lights on turned abuse. GonNa play in there. So they're pretty lucky and we're pretty lucky to raise our family. Aquatics feel at this point in the year of what to expect from conference. Usa once you get in to play or You feel like it's a little bit more wide open this year than just kinda rice running away with it last year. That's a really good question. I think that I think that our leauge I think when you look at maybe the stability in it. I think that that it sorta leads to maybe I do have a little bit of a clue about it and yet You know as you go through saying I I'm not. I'm not an expert on it yet. You know I've been a basically work one game at a time. And then I look at scores. On the periphery. But there's fantastic coaches in our reach And then I think a lot of the I think a lot of the schools that finished at the top. They either have quite a bit of stability on their roster Or they added some pretty good talent. You know a pretty good talent fusion so you look at you know teams like rice. We're getting ready to open up at rice and You know there's a lot of players out there when I watch the monsoonal leading into this game and there were a year ago and then we we. We've got North Texas. We've got Middle Tennessee after that we'd get UAB Old Dominion Charlotte and then Western. You know that's our first seven games of those teams. There's quite a bit of When you look at their scores and stuff those teams are have a quite a bit of success against some of the best leaks in our in the nation. So you know I think our league is probably as strong.

What was expected to be a joyous Tuesday in the world of sports as well as everywhere else but it is anything but that in our area as Most if not all of you have heard by now absolutely devastating storms hitting the Nashville area in middle Tennessee. The death toll is up to twenty two. There is widespread damage buildings blown apart. Power outages and just absolute devastation. Tim McGraw who has lived in Nashville for so long. And one of the most influential musicians in that area and in the world so the iconic I believe in national murals started popping up after the big flood. Ten years ago it stood as a symbol of resilience in togetherness. We are heartbroken for our community. After last night's tragic tornado. But no that together we will rise up and rebuild again. Tennessee's twitter account saying similar things. We are hurting for our brothers and sisters and Middle Tennessee sending our thoughts and prayers to those affected by the tornadoes. We believe in National Derek Mason head coach at Vanderbilt woke up this morning to the serious devastation across the city thoughts and prayers to all in the communities and Similar thoughts have been felt from the president and across the world as we will spend a considerable amount of time reflecting back. Seems like that so familiar to so many of you in Louisiana and Arkansas and Georgia Mississippi. And of course. Alabama which suffered Similar storms many many years ago Tommy. Deans joins us. Talk to Tommy In the aftermath of the two thousand and eleven tragedy on April twenty seventh at So shattered the Alabama community Especially Tuscaloosa. He was sports editor of the Tuscaloosa News. He is now in charge of that. Same Department at the Tennessean. The former president of the Associated Press Sports Editors and part of the Pulitzer Prize winning team at the news Tommy thanks Great to reconnect with you but so terrible under these circumstances I know you're newsroom and Newsrooms across that part of the country right now trying to cope with personal tragedy but was serving the public. Good afternoon from Utah. Include me on this because I think these each time that show our best side a lot of the towns that journalism As one bad things happen which is kind of unfortunate. But that's all hands on deck. We've got sportswriters out covering tornado them. It's just as we did in Tuscaloosa almost ten years ago and They will turn in great work because they're not only connecting with community this but that that they're part of the community just like everyone else was. I'm interested Tami because because of your experience at this In your job in Tuscaloosa went on forever. I mean that was that was. That was a clean up in a in a revitalization that That looks great today But it took a long time and something like this. You're sitting in on these meetings. And everyone has their own stories but you have a lot of work to do because people are depending on you for a for a myriad of things. What's it like To to be with your colleagues also know the importance of the community that you serve well it it is Challenging a level. The first thing is for me. Make sure everybody in my staff's okay Which I reached out starting this morning when I look around six o'clock I got woke up by by the storms the tornadoes or tornado touchdown not bright close to where. I live the right. Not Area and the sirens gone off and everything and I got woke up a little after midnight but I went back to sleep and I got up this morning and the first thing I was doing was trying to check in with my staff. you begin to try to make sense of what happened. And what the scope of what you're dealing with and then and then you start with the immediate. Where do we need to be right now? Putnam County was where we need the heating because they're More than it does is it there. That's the worst place that was the worst hit place And then you start looking and you get reports and you say when you send people here here at some point you begin to say. What does this look like tomorrow? What is at some only? We'll shift to. What do we need to be reporting on an chronically on this community recovery effort from now from now here about this will not be over with you know it will be off the front page at some point in the next week but it will not be over with Tommy? Just go back store. We've lived through a tumultuous winter pretty much everywhere in the south Storms have come through quite a bit as you were heading off to bed last night. What was the anticipation you know? I hadn't really thought that I knew there was some weather coming in but I did not. I guess I wasn't aware that there will be this level of stormy coming in You know I was doing what might be doing on any other Monday night. You know you can off with the Predator soup. Replaying downtown in Nashville and then I went to bed early. 'cause I get up early in. The storm was when I got woke up a little after midnight. I think with the first indication because I know what those sirens sounded like. If you lived in Tuscaloosa in April of two thousand eleven. That's aren't sound different to you than they used. Somebody else they they they bring on panic reflects but they visceral feeling you get when you hear that eating another s you bring back memories but you're GonNa play emotionally so when I heard the tolerance and they won't be up. I think it was more stark than just rolled over something that disturbs you. Because there's a noise outside so I went out on my porch gonNA check and I was texting back and forth with Paul Sorvino of our staff who had actually covered the predators game and he was checking on he texted. You know while still fleets and everything. Okay and you know just kind of a weird shape because I know what it feels like when it starts getting very still he begin to really worry we kind of feel that barometric pressure drop and we have experienced that I was in the middle of that and then it Kinda picked up the wind a little bit and it passed a little more north of us and everything but one or two exits down from where I live guys. Get real hard. You know I got hit really really hard to tell me Going back to that Damn Tuscaloosa as so many people that follow this. Show remember because we were live on the air Broadcasting it Late in the afternoon. But what we were broadcasting was what we were watching coming out of Tuscaloosa watching the storm approach to school. So you were there. What was that day like? And you've you've alluded to how it helps you prepare for this day but just the idea of going through this twice in a fairly short period of time. What do you remember about that Terrible April Day remember. I remember An give credit to I remember James Span saying be prepared. Just it's going to be bad like before and an early in that day in Baringo County. I think the Tornado Weather Mississippi and which it Marino county little west of Tuscaloosa South West. And they had a tornado touchdown in our. You know that was like during the morning early afternoon maybe ten or eleven and I think I know I fought and I think other people thought okay. That was the bad weather we were gonNA get in a very rural area knocked over a couple of barns. But it didn't do a lot of you know. Nobody got physically hurt in a bad way or killed and then later on in that after you started seeing what the storm fought with looking like and was coming your way and my experience with that we had a area. We had an area in the building where we went. During Tornado warnings. Tornadoes were expected becoming close. And I went down there with everybody else. And then I left I gotta get Outta here mom. My late wife late wife was from back surgery and I needed to go be with her And so I went to my home right across the river. Northward and we watched the with the Tornados. A massive destructive mile wide almost tornado going pass Bryant any stadium and all that and Then the lights went out and we had a weather radio when we listen to that. And that's only after obviously cleared the media Tuscaloosa area that I need to go check this out. You know my job. She was okay. You know we didn't have power. But but Got Her situated and then I went and drove across the river in Fifteenth Street in Chronicle on twitter stuff. That could what I was seeing and it and it looked like a war zone and if you look at the pictures through Tennessee today. It looks like a war zone. It's nothing to describe it and and I don't know all the places that national much. What was hit here is not as familiar to you. Haven't lived here as long. Haven't been to some of these places. But you know there's places in Tuscaloosa even today where like you can see memorial Coleman Coliseum from the from the Mall because there used to be buildings between the and very called free and those are gone. You're not supposed to be able to see that. Every time I think about that Tornado their their memories like that. That people in Tennessee will have you know there will be markers for a while for people who live certain places that were hit where where they will. The marker will be used to. That's where that used to the you. Take a right That kind of thing. And that's that's the thing that that you have to processed mentally emotionally and psychologically in every other way to to get used to because your world's changed if you're at your ground zero where one of the fit you you're not living in the world before finally Tommy is just city continues to dig out today and I think we all know it's not over yet. The worst may still be under a roof somewhere. How do you and your staff try to separate the personal loss of maybe your own house or certainly a co workers Loud one versus doing what you always do. And that's report the news. Well I'M FORTUNATE. And we're fortunate that near as nobody in the staff and certainly not abundant sports staff is directly affected by this other than not having power They'll people including myself including gentry as I think it's been on your show a number of times covering tornado aftermath in Putnam County. Today are columnist. Who you know it hit bear. I think less than a mile in southfield with very devastated. so yes. If it affects people you know in Tuscaloosa AL AT SCARBOROUGH. Not The kids politics and damage car. And then he's also one of the first people out there trying to record what was going on and report on it because again you're serving your community here. You know this is not. This is not sports. This is people this is life. This is where we live. And we're all members of this community and we wanna serving well and I want to give credit to one other guy to Tuscaloosa that was on my staff. Then I think you know shakes good bread or surely chase Kinda Kinda spurred us on and every member of our sports staff not only did Tornado reporting in Tuscaloosa in two thousand eleven but every single one of signed up and did it lifts one day of volunteer work somewhere to help clean up our community from eight. Am until past Dr at a loading dock. And I don't know how to run a loading dock all but I was put in charge running alone at a relief center where people were dropping lines of trucks. That went as far as you could see. Wal marts in like five trump's and just people bring stuff and pick up trucks and volunteers helping unloaded and then the entire Tuscaloosa county. Football team was doing like screen train spree grills at that time showed up and they're oh to. I got to know because I'm the sports editor brought him over and said he's your boss today. And if he said something grants yes sir and I never heard another answered yes sir from the rest of the day and none of Aleppo early and none of them did less than they could have. And that's what's GonNa come out of this and I think you were. You're referring to this in your in your intro While you're GONNA see out of that to the best of Nashville the best of Middleton teams left of all the other place because that's hard that is tough it is as many people are devastated as are devastated. The communities will rally together no recovering. They'll help each other. And we'll get through this.

Just walking around not knowing what to do Total devastation has you described Nashville. A war zone and Is still to this day. We're recovering there's still people that aren't back in their homes and Every day I think I have Band flashbacks about it. You know and I know people have Tuscaloosa had that people Nashville experience that the very same walthall. I'm glad you said that. I don't think people people understand. I mean we all. We're going through a lot of different things right now as a country in the world with this virus and but when you lose everything including loved ones it's hard to.

A couple of more guests that will be joining us as well as including your phone calls. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast we're back in. We talked to Tommy diesel minute ago. Who experienced both the Tuscaloosa Tornado and the one last night? Taylor Hicks Was a big part of the recovery effort in Alabama in two thousand eleven. He spent a lot of time Helping to raise money and awareness and He was in Nashville last night. Where he now lives Taylor. Thanks for being with us. Appreciate it and We thought that you pretty quickly because We know living in Alabama and now living in Middle Tennessee You know the feeling good afternoon and what. What was it like last night? Saturday for national. Paul you wouldn't think that You know going through something like that You know it's it's You KINDA JUST. It's a it's it's shocking You know but it's it's not shocking to all of US folks in the south it'd have to deal with it. You know on the springtime and you know now early spring and sometimes into the fall but You know pretty catastrophic devastation. Right outside of downtown Nashville. Which you usually don't think living in Birmingham skips around downtown You know big metropolitan areas but last night. That was the case and You know I I live in Germantown in the Buena Vista neighborhood and You know I that storm. The tornado probably was on the ground. Probably one hundred yards from where I live. and You know it's it's IT'S. It's it's just devastating. You know my goes out for the families that have lost ones and are losing one's at this moment Taylor You know you've you've experienced before but but last night early this morning Was there much I mean. I know there was. Forecasts are bad weather but You come to expect that. Don't you You know it. It just didn't seem like one of those days that You know that you would normally have an outbreak of tornadoes. At just you know. Usually it was very very hot. Not a very hot day but You know I I What happened about one o'clock last night and When the tornadoes on the ground the power goes out and You know whether radios are pretty important. Unfortunately I didn't have one but I knew that when they were you know Forecasting that Tornado was on the ground in an headed toward the Germantown North Nashville area. I I headed for the for the inner part of my house. Donald bottom floor and as I was passing glass window You know there were there was a giant debris flying around and I knew that it was a A bigger tornado than I'd you know anticipated obviously and I got into an entertainer room and you know. I heard the train sound the vibration and You know as I said a prayer and you know it's it's ten seconds of You know for me to a certain degree insanity a little bit because you you know. You're you're pretty close pretty close to death at that point in time and I don't wish that on anybody in any of my worst enemies in my time I just hope I hope the death toll stays where he is. Taylor Hicks joining us. Taylor I want to go back to the time in Alabama because You were such an important symbol In in terms of raising awareness and especially money I remember seeing you perform of course The the tremendous program Later a couple of months later that Randy Owen and many others Help stage and you did that countless times. And I know that You're part of the music community in Nashville. Which I'm sure we'll step up as they always have in fact The the community there stepped up trying to raise a stepped up and did raise a lot of money for For Alabama in in two thousand eleven just think communication with your friends in the industry What have you been able to Glean today? Yeah I I've had Receive we we all just texted each other just to make sure that you know. First and foremost you know our families were safe And if we were safe you know I think at this point. You know the You know the focus is on clean up and and you know some of the some the roads are impassable you know there's You know I I believe that. Some of the gas leaks and stuff that happened after tornadoes. I think that that that's kind of came under control but that was a that was a pretty dangerous situation last night You know walking trying to walk around you. You know after something like that help you know happens and you know that you're okay you. Kinda you kinda go into rescue mode and you walk outside and You know you you start looking around for people that might be. You know. There might be hurt or might need help and You know just a fascinating you know moment was after gather myself. I looked up and it was You know there wasn't a cloud in the sky is completely. You could see the stars. And that's how quickly you know. It goes from complete chaos to complete still and calm but You Know Nashville aliens in Are from what I've gathered living off and on in Nashville since I was twenty three years old. Pretty resilient communities very similar to Birmingham and the people of Alabama obviously the people at Tennessee. We nationals kind of a sister city to Birmingham which has had their share of catastrophic tornadoes. And you know in the in the past and Yeah I I think it'll rebound but he. I don't think anybody was expecting A Tornado of this is to to rip through the Metropolitan City last night before. You Go Today And I know everyone is glued to phones and televisions and radios and whatever But you say you said something earlier. Surreal but what's it like in town? I mean life goes on if you're not affected directly by other than you know feeling guilt for maybe being okay but but today in Nashville. It's two thirty eight in the afternoon. What's it like there right now? I think everybody's Kinda lost track of time especially the people that have lived You know that live in the area now I'm sure that if you go outside of the perimeter I think this is probably normal You know I mean it. It's it's not business as usual but there's just a swath of devastation that goes it's gone through the city and Yeah I think Nashville's You know I think Nashville's reeling I think there's I think it's GonNa take I think it's GonNa take a while to rebuild. You know a part of the city that was you know regenerating to a certain degree but you know also had you know a good footprint. On the restaurant's dining area Germantown was and is And Buena Vista is a really great area neighborhood outside that a lot of bars walking bars and restaurants and venues Some of those are gone At this point but You know I think life goes on and I think these people will rebuild quickly and you know as long as the public I can stay on. You know. Stay on Nashville and I think they'll receive the help I think it's you know. A lot of people have come into Nashville. So it's just It's been a tough day. Obviously it's been a long night for me but You know my my my heart goes out to the families that were affected by this tragic tragedy in a in a in a major way. Taylor thank you so glad to hear your voice and here you are well and we will be in touch and hopefully see you very very soon. Taylor Hicks thank you so much. Yeah we will be a national Next week next Wednesday doing our show all week from the SEC basketball tournament. I had somebody asked me today. Is that Is Everything so on and said well? Yeah I think so. I said well this virus and I forget there's another major crisis going on when all your attention on one thing we will continue more of your calls at eight five five two four to seven to eight five herm Edwards The Arizona State head coach will join us a little bit on just to kind of give us an update on his life. And what a life. It's been out in the desert will go back to the Middle Tennessee area little later in the program and of course include your phone calls right here listening to the Paul Finebaum show podcast. We welcome you back on a tough day. Let's continue with more phone calls and up next I know you're on the air. Hey good afternoon. Sure the sad day. Thank you for calling. Thank you I'm was born in Nashville. Your friends there and all over Tennessee. And they're great people just incredible people and you just kind of wonder guide us out in the South because we can handle it better than anybody else. It just makes you wonder Alabama you knew where the worst in the United States as far as the volatility of storms and hurricanes and tornadoes. And everything else and we're number one and you kinda wonder you know why. South the hot pocket you know. It's interesting No in the aftermath to two specific devastating storms. I believe in ninety eight which was an Oak Grove Alabama. And on the one in two thousand eleven. I remember talking to clergy friends on the air and off. There's never a good answer You know that but we ask anyway and I remember when we had our friend Archbishop Merino on a couple of months ago Someone asked him why. And it's something that we will forever ask and I think it's I think sometimes Disease or tough moments with health or one thing but natural disasters are even more difficult to explain. Yeah I think you got a good point. They when the storm came from Tuscaloosa or To my campground and Logan Martin Lake the Talladega area. I had a good buddy that helped me build a lot of the buildings on my RV parks. They're looking Martin Lake and when the storm was coming through there they ran to their church. Spencer his wife and two kids and I get down in the basement wall collapsed and it kills Spencer but it didn't even put a scratch on his kids and his wife and I still to this day. You know y you know I'll never forget in in the aftermath of the Tuscaloosa storms The sheriff took Myself and at the time The Attorney General of the state later the United States Senator Luther Strange Nor just just Just east of town were the absolute worst hit and on one side of the street You had homes. That were not touched. And you know what I'm about to say the other side there was nothing absolutely nothing and You never seen anything like it in my life. Yep I know well I'll tell you one thing you know one of those people up there. They will be thousands of volunteers up there for too long. It just going to take some time. Thank you so much no appreciate it. I I one of these times when when I I wish. I did not have experience in talking about this because We heard there from knowl- Unfortunately and tragically has been replicated so many times on this program and many many others But I I mean I'm I what I am right now because I think friends and like we've had today both Tommy and and Ann Taylor very close friends. I think what they've seen and the friends that they work with every day. And then you think about the the friends that are lost and the memories just come rushing back into your consciousness and it's. It's unlike anything that that I think I've ever experienced because we we all lose people Sometimes just natural. Sometimes it's expected but a Tornado I think is the most unexpected For some of the reasons that we've talked about and the absolute random randomness of it. All I I remember Talking to a man in Alabama he was sitting in sitting in a chair and his roof blew off the chair. He was sitting in never moved. it's just unbelievable. Stephen is in Birmingham. You're next on the program. Thanks so much for calling. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you my thoughts and prayers go every pic symbol You know growing up in Alabama fan you touch village so live and it's still a may be drafted especially down Macfarlane Fifteen. Y- full moon sits right there on the floor. Are you know? I'm over there every other week for work and stuff and I still do. I still say the house. My brother lived in Alabama and You know I had printed mine. Who are in pleasant grove. And you've got through pleasant grove and like you said there's houses on one side and like five blocks her on You know wilder stuck to the front of Yeah th- that That I think that was what Stephen the Ninety eight storm the old growth pleasure or is it a pleasant grove the in in In Eleven. I can't remember now. Yeah so basically. You had pleasant grove. You had in Birmingham. He had Pratt city which is really just north of Birmingham to downtown. Yeah I remember a pleasant grove was Was just that was another one of those places where you could drive down the street and there was nothing left absolutely nothing. I can't thank you enough Stephen for for calling really do appreciate it. Jo's in Kentucky. Hey Joe thanks for the call. All talk caller. I just wanted to tell you that I live through the seventy four Tornados up here. All Donkey and I'll always had a healthy respect and fear storms Tornados somewhere around two thousand six for two thousand seven. I own truck and I was driving from Tuscaloosa towards Birmingham storm and I stopped at Bessemer and spent the night and It was night of actually. The Night of an iron bowl was played in Auburn or not but when I got home I saw more destruction. Cars trucks houses. Boats turned over from Birmingham to my home at Central Kentucky and our rivers were summer pool prior to that Tornado and there was probably thirty five feet of water on these rivers within a twelve hour period. Oh my goodness so. I won't ever forget it. And so I've seen these Alabama storms and I. I know they're they're coming straight to Tennessee into Kentucky and North Carolina. I I have to run here Joe but thank you for sharing that in the seat I was thinking about was actually in Alberta city which is just across from Tuscaloosa. Anyway we We will continue talking about this. We are going to change gears in a moment with a couple of minutes with Edwards about Back to your calls.

How's it going today man? Do a well buddy appreciate your time as always here on this Thursday and. I guess LV this year for you stands for covert line value because you just keep having a bunch of great bets taken off the border with cancellations. Absolutely and you know my favorite bed of the entire year so far was taken off this week just a mistake by circa on, and they posted a North Texas Houston total of fifty seven I mean di- boom you know double take. was at Houston's team total or the overall toll for the whole game so. That that one where I was going to have two touchdowns pluses. CLV. Off The board no bet. Well and it's frustrating. I mean, obviously, you know there are much bigger things at play, but still a lot of these games here. They're trying to reschedule games that try to get these teams some games those wind up getting cancelled due I. Think we've had what four games wiped off the board here so far in week four, and in fact now also saw this morning that the Louisiana game could be in question as they've got some players dealing with some Kobe situation. So Georgia southern and Louisiana could be taken off the board here as well. You GotTa Bet on that one or no. I should've 'cause cirque opened. You'll Lafayette nineteen. So huge significant move there but I was more concerned on the other side Georgia southern's covert issues from a couple of weeks ago. But now looks like it's on the other side. So Missed opportunity to put that wall. Well, we've talked about this a lot we've touched on it with our different guests here. We've kind of done this in sort of progressive way week by week by week talking about getting in the markets early and it feels like. You're still trying to grab line value and it seems like we don't really have to worry about teams coming down with covert and lines moving because when they get covered, the game just gets canceled. Maybe, that gives us some confidence to bed a little more early on in the week Yes certainly. Regardless, of whether or not the team specifically has a bunch of positive cases in in the instance of south. Florida just more precautionary because their opponent from the previous week known her name, a bunch of positive cases. Yeah. I think look it's GonNa work out yet. Some we're GONNA move against you some we're GONNA move with you I might take this. Is What it is. I'm just going to continue to fire way. It's not GonNa Change Too much as far as my my philosophy goes. Well, that was something we talked about on Monday was if you're not going to trust your own numbers whose going to trust your numbers you. That work you might as well support it. Things early on in the week where you feel like you've got some line value and I don't know how many of our listeners put together power ratings and then their own spreads but also just kind of get a feel for the market and more often than not you could make educated guesses as to which of these lines will move in the favor that you think or opposite what your thoughts are on that game. So I would encourage to do that, and even if you do it, you know with some lower bet sizes than you would typically bet. Work on that practice that this is all years are good opportunity to do it. But especially this year here where you do have a limited number of games, you've got some conferences play that most people don't normally pay attention to. Work on some things I think for listeners out there. Yeah absolutely. Coming up. With before you even look at a line to begin with coming up with your own line on a game I, and you know if you have despaired east in feel free to put five, ten, twenty bucks depending on what your bankroll is I mean it certainly engages you a lot more than that specific game and yeah, I would say this would be a good year to learn a lot because you know even though. A lot of my numbers I'm also getting. Dea. Much. Players work because unbelievers obviously going to be out summer not. You know how much is six to three games of games under their belt versus a team opening up their season how much is that worth a lot of things that I'm learning even though I've been in the industry a decade plus. One I. Think it's important to especially because a lot of our listeners, the vast majority of our listeners are in the US and whether you're in a jurisdiction with legal sports betting or not. It's probably going to happen for you here at some point unless you live in a state like. Or Alaska or Hawaii something like that. Most of the states that are out there will wind up with legal sports betting I. Think what twenty three or so already have it maybe more than that at this point in time but you know this is a good time to work on those things and be prepared to hit those early weak numbers circa opens the global market. Then a lot of the offshore tend to follow a lot of places do wind up copying where those numbers end up going. But with that being said, you could still get some line value earlier in the week, and if you're in one of those states, as this continues to grow very much practice, you WANNA get into Absolutely, and again, my philosophy is you know how can you bet so early in the week when you don't know who's playing or what the weather is or what not to me it's still comes down to. I would much rather bet an individual bookmaker or a book that I would waiting to game they even though we have all the information available at that point I would much rather bet against one guy whether it sets force book director or whoever's making the line there than waiting until the actual game day and I'm betting against the entire market whether it be the public, the sharp butters, the syndicate batters. Awesome to be. The best. The entire week are against that individual property or individual person and I think that's an excellent point. Maybe something it's a little bit of an advanced point four lot of our listeners out there that you really aren't betting against the book unless you're betting very early in the week where they're still of trying to figure out what their position is going to be on that game. As you said, you're betting against the market, the longer you wait and I agree with you, that's an excellent take by you and it's one of the differences and we'll talk more about this as we go throughout the show. Seasons their difference between handicapping and betting handicapping is breaking down the game looking at the. And the matchups all the things you would typically do you know in a fantasy football context or being somebody's game preview or maybe you're out there writing your own game previews something like that. But betting is the idea of having that feel for the market playing those openers expecting that line to go your way of play a game because the line suggests that you should even though maybe the matchup or the handicapped isn't as convincing. So that's such an important delineation in this industry between handicapping and betting and the differences between the two. Absolutely two completely different things. I mean batting is specifically numbers you're not necessarily. Worried about a matt, a significant matchup edge or whatnot or our position group, and it should be all building a at least originally. You're banning around key especially early in the week that that's What I'm looking for when bending the circuit numbers. But handicapping as you know, the the the entire process usually handicapping starts with the power differential then goes into match of situation weather all at different things and they're going to an actual handicap. So yeah. Two completely different things and that's why you know the there's out there they couldn't tell you single player on a team and then there's handicappers that they can dive into specific matchups on speaking your weather here we're into late September. So mix, you're checking those weather reports wind the biggest factor more than anything, but obviously, precipitation can definitely impact a game as well. What to talk about a topic here for one of our highlight videos on ATS radio for the ATS Youtube page. It's this last week and I'm glad that I remembered to do it because a lot of times I don't remember anything these days but we talked about last week how we would do a video on live. Betting and some of the things that we look for in that context and I think both of us agree live betting is the future of this business. The full game market has gotten a lot more difficult to beat. So you try to find those opportunities in game I know you had one last week where he looked at you lane thought to. Lane was going to run away with that gaming. It's navy and you could see where your thought process was but the game just kind of flipped did a one eighty didn't work out on the other hand. You had a situation like that with army rethought army was GONNA run a team off the field and they absolutely did earlier on the weeks so. In this highlight video here. Let's talk about live betting and talk about what you're looking for as a game is going odd to make some of those live wagers. So obviously, college football's a major swing momentum's and I'm looking at a variety of things you know maybe if you're making looking to make a second half, maybe a team scored right before the half that you can see is going to give them momentum going to break particular and it showed up before I get to the two lane loss That that I didn't think was properly accounted for was the injury. We saw Spencer Sanders for Oklahoma state the corvette come up gimpy for them. And I didn't see that the couple books I was looking at the. Game Up to me that look like they were making the proper adjustments clear. The Sanders didn't look like using a comeback into the game and at least for the original back of Oklahoma state didn't look like he was very capable of moving the team in the scored position consistently especially with the team. Then at that time was laying a double digit point spread even though there was significant struggles there for Oklahoma state that gained so with. All the Games going on in it's going to be more pertinent this particular week with the SEC a much bigger car than what we've seen in college football. The first couple of weeks season. I don't think the sports directors are certainly on top of injuries, key injuries and obviously quarterbacks. The biggest one that we've seen it went with with you know wide receivers, rookie running backs again, not getting properly accounted for and finally for me Adamus. You're looking for a specific game where you're expecting to see more of the same Byu. Navy on Labor Day night you knew within the first couple possessions and wasn't GonNa be name he's night so I wasn't afraid. To lay fourteen seventeen, whatever was would be. Particular night I thought last weekend I was going to see more of the same. I watched the first couple of series of the two Lane Navy game. You know terrain lockdown navy's option to lane move the football games navy. So what Hell of seven nothing? In Game I, bet you aim is thirteen and a half Mike I just I think it's going to be a blowout and halftime what it was twenty four nothing after. I. Made it into. The bet when it was seven nothing, I felt pretty comfortable. Why? Navy typically is not a team that that's going to be able to come from high from big deficits that can throw the football So you know that that went out and flames unfortunately, but you know if I had to do it over again, I would make exactly the same onto lay. Well and that's the thing you want to keep in mind with this business in general and with live betting certainly to you WanNa, focus on the process over the results you know more often than not that bet is going to win you know navy is not a come from behind team they were on a triple option. They can't search chucking the ball vertical down the field because it's just not in their repertoire but they made. Some adjustments wind up coming back, win the game outright it happens it is what it is but you thought you isolated something in game that maybe wasn't properly accounted for in the line and you mentioned the Spencer Sanders thing. That's an excellent one. You think about injuries in football you think about foul trouble in NBA and college basketball. Those are things that aren't properly accounted for because a lot of times live betting is very algorithm it's. How much time is the score is what the spread was before the game stuff like that, and it won't take into account those things like injuries and foul trouble and just being able to watch the game. No matter how much work we do before a game actually starts it is still educated guesswork. We're trying to get the best number that we can. We're trying to see if we can handicap as much variance as possible out of the game, and we're trying to see how this thing's going to play out in our minds. There is no substitute for season. Things are actually playing out, and that's where live betting can generate a lot of advantages where you can say, Hey. This just not moving the football. There's something going on here or hey, this pass rush. This other teams defensive line is completely dominating this game and those are things that maybe you thought about before the game maybe you accounted for before the game but now you're actually seeing them and that's when you can extract some equity betting on that game. And in particular those matches, the defensive line offense align stuff that maybe was in your handicap on the game but he thought ads where the pointer so here. But when you actually physically see something like that Oh my goodness, this is where several points I didn't properly account for it and and yet sometimes you're not taking the best of the number like you were maybe pre flop that ended up being correct on your behalf. But but I'm okay, taken you know three four points worse of it when I think it's maybe Worth seven points or something more than that. Again, as the future of the industry with each passing year more books are offering it more games are available on. So again, no matter how good your pre flop handicap ass- sometimes it's just nothing beats betting a game in and game, and again I'm going to point to an all year. The Byu Navy game was example a of I don't care how good your pre flop handicap us physically seeing something on your screen like that. It just doesn't get any better than that. One last point dimension here we talked previously in our previous segment and you can hear everything that we have to say on our ATS radio podcast but we talked about this is a good year for people to try making their own numbers to work on Powell ratings to bet early in the week even if you don't bet the same at amounts that you usually do. As, you get closer to kick off. You can throw a quarter unit out there or a half unit out. There's something like that just to get yourself in the practice of doing that of you'll making your own numbers playing early in the week seeing how many games in your favor let's say you were fifty or a one hundred dollars better pre flop but you WANNA learn. Live betting make five ten, fifteen, twenty dollar wagers on that just to get your sea legs under you get an understanding how the process works. You'll how the algorithms changed the lines based on what's happening in all these types of things you don't have to go crazy with it. You don't have to bury yourself with your bankroll and wind up having fifty sixty percent of. Your bankroll and play because you're live betting the game just give yourself the opportunity to learn how it all works to see. If you can isolate some of those scenarios. See if you can find some things that maybe the sports books don't account for like you said, the Spencer Sanders injury like I've mentioned the example of foul trouble and just go about it that way and. You can get a little bit more of a feel for because we all know that when a lot of people bet on Games, they watch them to, and this gives you the opportunity to either live trade the game or just at least get a feel for what both brandon I believe is the future of sports betting. And I think your point one should be very valid. You gotta be very careful because the temptation is always there after you see a certain score certain play it to fire on a team. You know it's okay to bed a little bit in game as you're learning and filling out the process lower your amounts I can't emphasize that enough because explosion in College Football College basketball there are incredible NBA incredible. Moves out of you know swings a momentum and as far as game glow although one more thing that we haven't mentioned a you also in game the opportunities for middle's because especially with gas sports like college basketball, college in the NBA with those massive swings in momentum game flow man, you can really set yourself up for fourteen seventeen, twenty one point middling opportunities and that's another reason why I think lying in game live the wave of the future. Yeah, absolutely. You know we. Talked about misleading box scores here on this show quite a bit. We do that a lot on Mondays as we sort of, you know recap the weekend and you see line moves based on those misleading box scores see moves where a team out gain the other team by two hundred yards their line comes out a little bit in the minds of the market, all the sudden that lines going up on Monday it's a similar thing with live betting if a team shoots seven for. Eleven from three in the first staff, they're probably not going to do that again in the second half. So that is alive betting thing you can look to take advantage of a team may go six for seven down in the first half probably won't happen the second half. But if you noticed, they're just having success tight ends or running free your third medium they're just guys are open by three yards maybe it won't regress to the mean maybe that's an angle you can still. Play on. So live betting gives you a lot of these opportunities. Again, you have to be responsible with your bankroll and not have too much of it in play because a lot of different things can happen but the overall theme here the overall point is that there are a lot of opportunities to be had, and in some instances, it can be much easier than handicapping game pre flop just because again, you've been able to see something you lay out whether you expect it or not. Absolutely the The issue is a guy like me that's all information base anal as a customer basis getting that information out to those people. A timely manner is the kind of pushes poll. But but if you're an individual guy learning the market and wanting to do this I, think that would be my soul. If I was just starting in the industry right now, I, wouldn't even worry about three flop. I would just focus solely on the in game my buddy. Definitely the future of sports betting as you and I have said Multiple Times here on this segment and makes you all of our highlight videos over on our ats youtube page and also make sure your subscribe here to listen to the full versions of ATS DOT IO radio. Aren't with that before we get into a few game breakdowns here, we'll give ourselves a couple of minutes to sort of survey the card just in general here as the SEC begins play as the ACC keeps going we've got situations again this week Brad where we've got some teams that have been playing some teams that haven't been some teams with two or three games some teams with one game. Feel, like sports books are really starting to account pretty well for those situations where we've got differences of where the state of the team is or do you feel like there are still some opportunities to be had early in the week they're not in my opinion properly accounted for some of it. But, but I think once you when I start talking on Thursdays Yeah. I think the market is sharper now than what it was safe two weeks ago specifically obviously in college but but but again, I I. My fist year, Sunday. Mondays I don't think they grasped. Cove it Issues you know you're certain situations of where, for example, Duke Virginia Dukes Played Two. Games Virginia. If you were to just do that pre like on a Friday or Saturday for the upcoming week those certain situations and bet on or against those teams I think you're gonNA get at least a couple of points of. Most instances because right now, I if you're looking to Ben on Sunday Monday I, again, the books of not properly accounted for a Lotta these and certainly this week I saw more significant moves from the circle. Even when I saw last week. I don't know what you're number isn't that Duke Virginia, Game I got Virginia minus four, and that one open what nine I think nine at circa. So again, not being properly account for the fact Duke Not only you talked about earlier on misleading fine against Boston college that was one thing that. We're going to look the PAL do and the other factor. Do I'm playing games and hasn't played yet you knew a lot of the early money would come on Duke in that instance. So again wasn't properly accounted for then now, obviously, through a key number of seven, it's you know. At least better price online I still think there'll be some slight value on Duke parents. It sounds like you and I are both in the same spot there. Virginia minus four in that type of range, and again, that's why it's helpful and beneficial to create your own numbers and have those things to go off of early in the week we got a quick turnaround here. Obviously, but just real quickly here Thursday night game we have a Friday night game which was just recently added to the card because Middle Tennessee rescheduled a game against somebody but you and South Alabama tonight game four, seventeen, four, eighteen, certainly a few sevens pop up out there in the market with. A road favorite against a South Alabama team. It's been very impressive to this point. Certainly. But also I think it's taken into consideration as far as my line on the game is right near where the number is on this one in King Mine. I, mean you had a pretty good team South Alabama getting double digits against southern miss by UAB's better than, and then clearly now that we've seen semester a couple of games and then to Wayne was also at South Alabama link doubled sat one and maybe to a might be a similarity odd. Team. So again, factor in the line was also interesting about tonight's game and I think another in game live betting opportunity you got two teams playing backup quarterbacks in this one. Tyler Johnson's hurt for UAB is back of Scott and some snaps gotten some playing time I trouble games. But we'll see I roll start for him. Does he struggle to the I mean I'd again I'm not sure that's going to be properly collared for pre flop and then also lover Tich the juicy transfer South Alabama again, a player of this gotten a lot. Of snaps in the first couple games but he has never started at least at this level before again want you know maybe both quarterbacks handle it fine. But I'm guessing one's going to handle it better than the other and you're going to be able to see that for the first couple series of the game. Again, another in game live betting opportunity in my opinion. The Friday night game is is got to throw away game on the surface because these are teams that. are very good or very popular, but it's very interesting handicap here with Middle Tennessee state and UTSA game four, fifty, four, fifty, six. Book. When you get trucked by army. Week one I will give you a pass for that because you don't see the option if you're middle Tennessee state and quite frankly you're more worried about your team and kind of getting everything set up with your squad. When you get trucked by troy the following week, not a very good look at Troy team. It hadn't played a game yet middle Tennessee did play gimmicky kind of game against army but still it was just not a good look for them at all UTSA WHO's been one of the bottom five in everybody's power ratings the last what three or four years pretty much laying touchdown. Yeah. The total of sixty in this game. I I. Mean I'm not going to be invested in this game. I doubt you will be either but man, you talk about Texas state last week you talking about Utsa this week, some teams that are not accustomed to big favourite rolls laying some decent numbers early on here. Yeah This game is you preseason power rings? Middle. Tennessee be favored. I dropped Middle Tennessee up about eight points maybe hasn't been enough. I'm just not built the automatically drop a team, two touchdowns in my powering after a couple of games But man the markets certainly looks like they've dropped Middle Tennessee down double digits. Like the job and like what I've seen from UTSA so far but man appear powering for me isn't a field goal range even though I mean an typical season I'd be you know I'd be giddy up let's go with Middle Tennessee, I'll take the plus seven looks like an overreaction. I'm just not willing to do that at this point. For me maybe small potatoes type of that I'm going to go over UTSA's offense is legit this year some missed scoring opportunities for them and you know I worried about Middle Tennessee's defense but also think offenses is do the damn good performance here. So higher total near fifty, nine, sixty range but I would lean over well, and this is one UTSA has. Increased tempo this year and maybe that's maybe that's accounted for the number maybe it's not I. Guess we'll wait and see how that one plays out game three, ninety, five, ninety, six, four, state and Miami I thought opening under ten was a gift I expected this number to move up and it has it's still not up to where my number has this game, but it is eleven or eleven and a half out there total fifty three and a half to fifty four ranch. So maybe that's Kinda keeping this number down a little bit because the total has dropped about a full field goal or more in the marketplace but. You know look for two states in a tough spot here I mean they're coach sidelined with Kelvin. Nineteen Mike Novell who was already a first year head coach anyway they didn't play last week Miami Hung Almost Fifty on Louisville. Is this number too high for you to take a shot at Miami or do you feel like you know the hurricanes are in line to blow away another opponent here? Wow the way you're breaking down. To. It sounds like thing Miami, nearby number a maybe I've been too slow to just Miami's power and you know, I, got him all four five points I think they're clearly a top fifteen team. Can't this because I like to regress games as the season For to state didn't play last week and I still dropped three points because Georgia tech looked very good against them and then got blown out by central Florida. Air. Thought, Georgia Tech Okay Against Central. Scoring opportunities again for the L. Jackets I think you know obviously central to put it on in the four tour because it was a twenty eight, twenty, one game entering the fourth quarter in that one, and again, that was already taken in consideration Georgia tech and messed up many scoring opportunities you see update as well. But now I guess that's where our disagreement is I did draw for state because novell's not there I, mean at least point and just not fist the man hours and him not physically being there for this game I would cove in nineteen but I didn't draw three points. So let's put it that way. Because I mean that's the difference, my lines fifteen. So if I if I leave those three points there at twelve, some I'm pretty much in line with the market for the most part. So yeah, and that's something that you know I've been doing powering. Power Ratings. Long before that back to your Phil Steele days with North Coast sports and. You know I mean maybe that's part of the problem is that you know sometimes I still run into a little bit of that overreaction a little bit of that recency biased and generally speaking when our numbers are different mine and yours, it's because I'm overreacting to something so. Here, we made a lot of dinner bets on those last year and last I checked you came out of those I can race that further man that Burger was good and was a few more. If I keep picking good spots like that I don't think you'll mind. Off. All right one other game I want to talk about here, and then we'll get to a highlight game but I wanted to your take on Tennessee and South Carolina for those watching the highlight videos I am wearing a hat that says cox on it not. Never Mind I just like South Carolina but interesting game here that three and a half is now the side forty three and a half is the total. So if you listen to Monday's show and you bet the under, you got some totals value on that one both Kyle Hunter and I definitely onboard at least in the market is for the total for this one but Tennessee laying road numbers, SEC play has not been a common theme here. Lately is this a good spot for them against South Carolina or do you feel like you know maybe Tennessee we'll have some trouble winning end covering as a road favorite here and thanks just to get to heavily involved in this one. I. Think you guys are obviously right market agreed the under should've been a play there sec tolls with the exception of one LSU MISSISSIPPI STATE. Nov. price too high in the marketplace that the started off Under. Would have been the play early in the week. The I definitely don't WanNa lay the Hawk on the road with the Tennessee team like you mentioned has been laying road favorite one, three, four years in SEC play. And they've had just a few weeks ago may forty players out for scrimmage. I. Mean it's not like boom. Bang you're back the next couple of days I mean forty if it was true forty players being out because Cova do you I mean technically you should missed two weeks of practice. So again now willing to. A few on the road here. But I'm not anxious the Bet South Carolina with a new offense coordinator new quarterback like you mentioned before. We started taping this nylon playmakers for South Carolina. They lost a key one is playing for the raiders right now and why receivers so. Stay away at the current numbers for me. I guess one game I do want to ask about real quickly here just because it comes right before a highlight game, the four, thirty, three or four, thirty four is Mississippi State, and Lsu, and we have seen some Mississippi state money on this game but I know you're big on returning production I. Know You read a lot of the bill connerly stuff like all of us do Lsu mean they lost virtually everything from that championship team last year but Mississippi state is dramatically changing their offense with Mike Leach going to that air raid I mean look sixteen and a half is a big number. Mississippi state could be an absolute dumpster fire here and it wouldn't surprise anybody I mean would you bet this game with with your most hated rivals money? I would not not the side by the total I. Mean they opened a total forty eight, my saint miles against. Know early Dan Law Mississippi state offense didn't our quarterback free Dak Prescott so I mean I feel comfortable with that. Bet But right now I'm not bad there's too many unknowns I would love the Bet you know lsu I probably would have faded lsu against maybe ten other SEC teams but not Mississippi state stark difference You know SORTA say with contrasting styles of offense for going to Mike Leach new quarterback gauging Ghazala transfer too many unknowns but I think another in game wagering up we'll. We'll know first couple series of the game you know Lsu the talent ways out over. Inexperience or you know maybe Costello has got the offense down in Mississippi. State Chuck in it again I think another live opportunity but preflight right now, hell no, no not betting with your money buddy. I'm not your hated rival. Am I? Mean Man. Sorry. Come on I mean I know I beat you and all the head to head bats but come on. Competition I. Are you going to know I mean it died. I don't care if it's checkers udo or Megan bats are a little dinner batsmen I mean i WanNa win are you a sharp player? I am very short and real know people say it's all chance but I do. I. Could figure out a lot of things in my head on the fly. So yeah, I'm very good at. In our next highlight video is going to be who tips from professional. Brad powers. All right. Let's go ahead and do a highlight game breakdown here for game four, thirty, seven, four, thirty, eight Kentucky and Auburn Auburn seven and a half point favorite total on the rise up to forty nine and a half or even fifty out there and I want to start with the total here first Brad because. Generally speaking, we don't see a lot of totals going up for Kentucky Football Games does that say anything to you one way or the other about how this game could play out I? Mean it concerns me a little bit. Maybe the expectation is you know Auburn offense is maybe a little bit better than we thought but man to me the. Chin here focuses on lions scrimmage and to me I don't expect Auburn at much success in that department. So I am surprised that total was going up usually. I. Mean Most often I mean total goes up. You know that's GonNa more scoring. WHO's IT GONNA favor. The favorite because there's more scoring more opportunities for the favorites, exert their dominance over the ball. So as we look at the spread done here, seven and a half, what do you think about that? So this is I'm glad we're we're talking about this one has nothing to do with the number for me. This is a matchup specific. Recap for me, and again it's a line of Scrimmage League in the SEC and the this might come shocking to most I. think it's one of those once in a generation or least wilmer comparing what Kentucky football has been for the last twenty, thirty forty years. This is a rare instance where I think Kentucky has the edge at the line of scrimmage. Specifically, Kentucky's offense a language many feels one of the top five, six offense wines forgetting SEC or talking the entire country taking her on defense align just lost a couple of draft picks the until the NFL, including the first defensive lineman taken so I think. specifically I big edge there for Kentucky on the other side of last year Mitch got replaced stars on the offensive line aisling. That's necessarily a good look for the Tigers. They're. So even my numbers aren't strong Kentucky for that reason, and that reason alone at the line of scrimmage I do like them plus the seven and a half. It's interesting I. Minus nine and a half I'm not sure I don't think you're as office I am on that game although two points most people would say it's not that far off at all kind of depends on which numbers are in play there. But specifically on the Kentucky side, they don't have wind boden junior anymore. They're going to go back to a more traditional type of offense where it's not going to be a lot of improvisation. A lot of quarterback running things of that sort does that worry you about Kentucky even though they have this good offensive line. The traditional offense and the quarterbacks that they had in house before Boden took over, it wasn't really a great look for them. It wasn't, but yet you know the the quarterback and this is where I think another mispricing is is Terry Wilson who is going to be the starting quarterback last year was the starting quarterback in Twenty Eight Team Kentucky managed ten wins. So I mean he was good enough to win ten games in the SEC two years ago and look at some of the advantages the you know the bone hat it's it's not there but Kudos for for students for adjusting on the fly. But I'm not concerned that Kentucky's going back to more of a typical style offense here and I don't think as far as pure quarterback play. It's that biggest downgrade like everyone's making out to be. One last thing I want to ask you about here as the SEC begins play and we know that the big ten will begin play here in about a month or so we've talked a lot about home field advantage what it's worth what it's not. You've got a crowd presence in some places no crowd and others for the most part. Sec, teams are going to have a crowd presence and likely somewhere between fifteen to twenty five thousand fans depending on the capacity of the stadium. So what does that mean for you in the context of games this week like at Ole, miss at Lsu at Auburn those games were actually going to have enough people to really make some noise. But still significantly less than typical SEC gained. So I mean as far as sec what we're going to be some the biggest Dow rages fires home field advantage it was going to be these SEC atmospheres specifically sold out crowds at night while the at twelve hours of drinking and consumption of alcoholic beverages and taking that out of the mix I mean I was looking to downgrade Sony's home field advantages to three points. We'll see how off fifteen, twenty, five, thousand people can be and again going to be Garcia I threw on my screen because we haven't seen a lot of those type of atmospheres and crowds who are in college football I. I got to see it I. I'm still not expected for this game why Landon A. M. Start Time and I'll have to do the research on this at least the to make it more current. Going back to my north. coast. Phil Steele Days I didn't WanNa be laying points an SEC conference play on these eleven am central. Local Kickoff Times. It's just a little bit of sleepy crowd there early in the morning and I wasn't anxious to bet the favorite there. This is what it that way. Well, in general for me Homefield Advantage, I've given one for the travel one and a half for schools that have some sort of crowd presence. But generally, you know it's relatively small. I think most of my SEC teams I'd have to go back and double check this but I think most of my teams are to with the top of the heat being two and a half teams that just win at home and they're gonNA win. At home no matter what and you kind of have to incorporate that into the line but I mean for the most part I would say it's pretty much cut in half for me a right now for the SEC and we'll see if that winds up being the case going forward I'm gonNA similar almost exactly the same boat as far as my favorite power ratings factoring the home field advantage. Well, this was a highlight video here. Versus Auburn make sure you listen to our full podcast editions, of ATS, dot Io Radio and subscribe to our ATS Youtube Page as well Brad with that any other Games in college football that you WanNa talk about here for week four before already NFL. You know the one that I think's really interesting handicapped and I know allow pure math guys that the bill connolly's of the world really loved Tcu this week. I don't love to see this I love the author side Iowa State of for a lot of reasons. Number One let's just talk I know the the. Luster off the shine of Matt Campbell at Lisa's last success gains dating back to last year but one thing that he's Proven to be is he's Gary Patterson's number the tuna four no against the spread against Patterson covering by double digits owering by double digits late, a similar number last year and absolutely hammered Tcu by twenty five I got game under their belt advantage. It was a game. Yeah. It wasn't a good for them by any stretch and imagination, but it wasn't as bad as the thirty one, fourteen final two special teams touchdowns for you l. off yet contributed at one long pass play again I think I'm getting value there and I think TCU again, Kovin issues a lot during fall camp. There was some player on rest early on back in the. Summer. They got a quarterback Duggan whose cleared the play but isn't GonNa Start So we'll see how plays out and other in game live opportunity. Maybe he comes off the bench store to say, but I'm looking to bed Iowa state air my two and a half game under belt advantage of misleading final the week before series advantage and Gary Patterson? I? Mean this was incredible and the work that I did Adam I Gary Patterson last four years thirty, thirty, seven percent against spent thirty seven percent the only to power five teams worse Ucla Arizon- in that time period. So he's a hall of Famer but maybe the Games passed in my little. Wow that's a fascinating status especially because you know people kind of revere Gary Patterson as ahead coach in a Lotta ways, and maybe that goes back to win. TCU, was in the mountain west and all that. But. In Fourteen fifteen. Teams in college football. Yeah, that's true. The wine movement on this game has been fascinating I. Opened a favourite at circa. Got Bet to a dog I know you've caught a piece of them as an underdog. Then the line swung they got us is minus five earlier in the week, and now it's come back down again. Fascinating game obviously all these swings, one of the most bet games of the week and you got sharp money going both ways in this game too. So really interesting to watch the market movement for that one to say the least. And the market. Look I. Agree with the the early money I I bet Iowa state early five was pricey no question about it but the fact that it moved down two points through a key number of three. So it's basically like a probably at three point move I mean I don't care what that dog in Wisconsin play and start the game, but he's not and we don't even know how healthy has been as you've been practicing. So I think when he's healthy and he's GonNa play, he's worth three points in this situation I don't think he's worked very points for that move. So again, that's where my disagreement is at the current number. Before we transition over to the NFL, do you want to spend twenty minutes on you tap and you all monroe or no? No it is. That even with everyone how that these are the two I think everyone has these two by two teams playing right now as far as this rightist ten. That is you tap I, mean they're bad I mean they really had the fight clone scratch to beat a couple of teams in Kudos. You got the winds but we're talking middle of the road at best ask CS teams. They had the fight gone scratch to beat. I would take ten with Utah is the Lane I can't lay double digits you all monroe right now should they joined the Big Sky or something? I mean is that what you should do? And now they're I mean they're encouraged to say so they stick with that money the other team that area of the country that's really left out to dry some extra state doesn't have conference the Travel Eve it's unbelievable travel even in a conference like the Big Sky for the. More like quit football I think is the answer for a lot of those schools. All right. So we will move over to the NFL here, and before we get to any games, we'll have a highlight video breakdown here for the raiders and the Patriots. This week's injury report is stupid. It's an look. The thing is a lot of these guys are out for the year or at least definitely out this week in multiple weeks. So it's like we're sitting here waiting on a ton of questionable designations. There are a few and there are some teams with cluster injuries were a lot of guys are questionable but. Man I just I don't remember an NFL season like this with so many superstar game changer types of dudes guys that aren't quarterbacks that could still move the number being out. It's crazy. Yeah, I'm going to give props award sharp talk about a couple of weeks ago worried about a Lotta these issues with no preseason camp nine, a Lotta hitting. Hardly any OTA's and whatnot I mean the first type of one hundred percent. Let's go get after. It's been these couple of games. So I would say it's shocking but considering what the lack of. Conditioning lack of hitting lack of preparation is not a super super big time surprise for me and. I to get I was GONNA get a little political, little controversial. I won't go there. Well. The only thing I would say as ACL's happen all the time and we've had a ton of those and I don't know if that's something that you know preseason would've helped with or anything like that. Certainly doesn't seem like it would have helped at metlife stadium where the poor forty niners to go back. If that was the case then chats would have had a bunch of all men. They did lose three guys for the season defense last week. Didn't they? All right fair enough. I I don't. The forty niners are the only ones really bitching and complaining about it, and which I think is significant considering their plane at the exact same place this week I. Think Psychologically it's a horrible spot forum there but I mean, we'll see. We'll in general something interesting to me about that game between the forty niners giants of course, the giants, of course, lose Saquon Barkley. We know to a tornado sale. But they were trying to force feed Barkley the football to run with horrendous offensive line. Now, deal Jones is going to throw quite a bit more and maybe that helps the giants. It helps them score more points. So nate, maybe this is a low total over you kind of want to take a look at something like that. I'm still not willing to bet the over on that one but I I did off over ban the giants again over reliance on Saquon Barkley yes a big loss for them but again, how many teams are relying? So solely on on running back, there's reason why they're not doing it in the NFL more. So again, I think moving more towards Daniels Yawns at this. Point. Maybe it's not a good look for this week. I hope it is because I bet him but I think as far as the future and the progression of him and the development of a quarterback Niamh Saquon as a safety net back there might actually be good for Daniel. Jones. This season well, then another running back it's out Christian McCaffrey for Carolina I mean. I. Don't know who wants to lay six and a half with the chargers but I also don't know how you take Carolina with the situation that they're in including the long travel in the first year coach and Matt ruling all of that I mean, that's the thing about this week in the NFL. I think just in general, you gotta lay uncomfortable numbers with the chargers. Cardinals number is a little bit uncomfortable against Detroit you've got this short giants number that a lot of people seem to like a lot of people taking Houston at the short number, which is a game. I do agree with by the way I like the Texans a little bit in that one but. All of a sudden, the bengals are down from six and a half to four and a half against Philadelphia. There are a lot of unsavory very hard to make bets being made this week I think. I. Agree this week and I felt the case last week and it was what the most time since in any season basically since the Alana records went back to one thousand, nine, hundred five as far as teams winning favorites winning, but not covering the spread. The. Dogs I wasn't anxious that the bent on that kind of came out maybe they covered I mean. A window there were land. Uniform and I didn't do it because I got killed on a couple of teasers in week one. But last week was a teasers dream and I didn't take advantage again this week a lot of. With the favourite man I don't WanNa really anxious to take it with the dog. So lot of throwaway games for me in the NFL. Thankfully, I did find three four games where where I really like I'm GonNa, get the one that I can't wait here in a couple of minutes. Well, and this is a challenge at tomorrow. I'll talk about my circuit picks for week three seven wanted to start the season here I mean. That's seventy one. Well, I, mean there's somebody at ten and ten and there's a few guys at nine, one one and all that but. But. That's the thing is this feels like one of those quintessential weeks in the NFL where I like three games I can talk myself into a fourth but you gotTa pick five games in these contests whether you're in the circa or the super contest or you're in something with friends or some kind of pool. Absolutely and my note threes always been my sweet spot. So I I tip the CAP, you guys being able to go especially because you can't play totals. Kelly total. So three yeah. Threes always been of my sweet spot even counting totals each week three four is what I usually bet counting totals and the NFL man and I been good I mean I'm more successful in the NFL than I am for for Pizza Gang College football but man five sides is incredibly tough to do although come on I mean everyone's bitching and plane you do get the. Bathroom the down as far as its tail number that you can pick as far as they contest goes picking you know live on the side is one lane the one ten but a stale number in a contest Kinda I think even our as far as the take five, it does of course, last week Philadelphia was a stale number top pick in the circa and I mean they got beaten pretty. By the rams and that was one that I believe was pick him I want to say in the circa. Pick them or even eagles plus one I. One of those contests I believe and that was a stale number kind of grasping at that line value and summarised works out sometimes it doesn't that was an instance where it works. It works out I mean I did a lot of still numbers the last couple of years in the Golden Nugget and you did very well in the Golden Nugget. So it you know don't beat yourself up if you're losing. So stale numbers in the long run your positive well we'll see if those stale numbers come into play here this week again as I mentioned with some of those questionable injury designations for some cluster injuries and cluster injuries what you want to pay attention to Barclays priced into the number McCaffrey's priced in the number, Garoppolos priced into the number stuff like that but those. Cluster injuries at other positions generally not priced into the number, and there may be some elements not priced into the number here for this game, we're GONNA highlight video breakdown on ATS radio of the matchup between the raiders and the Patriots Game Four, sixty, one, four, sixty, two here on the board. New. England laying six or six and a half total, forty seven and a half year, and this will be a consensus opinion from us and you will hear me talk about this game with by circa breakdown tomorrow on the show Brad the floor is yours bad raiders patriots. What are your thoughts? Nine, when my favorite NFL Batta, the week prime, my favorite NFL bet of the last couple of weeks is put it that way. This is my bed that I'm GonNa Make College or pro this week and I know it's going to sound square. I'm laying with the Patriots number one I think it's a horrific spot for the raiders off emotional first game win in the new stadium last week one day last time flying across the country for the second time in three weeks for the raiders huge negative that I don't think being accounted for in this line is sorta say And then the Patriots for me the mispricing comes out of this I think New England operated a quarterback this year with Cam Newton at least nowadays healthy maybe that won't be the case at the end of the season. But right now can new and running and drawing I. Think they operated and look you talk about how you know one yard having an impact on a point screen. This point spread in my opinion seven if the Patriots one extra yard last week against. The seahawks and then win get the outright upset when the CR two no, I think this line seven. So I'm to me a yards not gonna you know move might number a half point-to-point even though I thought the market would have. So again, no those couple of key factors and on top of it, the key factor for me seventeen year sample size of New England awful loss a straight up loss undervalue check sixty, eight percent against the spread covering by six points per game. Up For me and my favorite out of the week New England. I completely agree I cannot even play devil's advocate with anything that you said and furthermore to the Vegas Offensive Line has some issues. They've got some injury problems. I think last week quite frankly and I was on the raiders that was the one that hit me to three and two last week. I just don't know if the saints are all that good I mean I give Vegas Credit for winning the game I give them credit for winning that week one game on the road at Carolina on kind of a weird ish type of spot I. Just don't think the saints very good. I drew brees is showing his age quite significantly and he did the same thing in the playoffs. Last year I think Vegas has just gotten fortunate in the first two weeks to play a first year NFL head coach rule, and then to wind up taking on a saints team that is just watered-down right now, a saints team that just doesn't look like. The team that we've seen the last several years, the Patriots on the other hand look very good. Cam Newton seems very comfortable. Josh mcdaniels loves running this offense. They can do a lot of things that they couldn't do with Tom Brady belshazzar defensive genius. We all knew that already saw that last year we took over as the DC. We're seeing it here again, this year even with some of the guys that aren't out there for him look. Yeah Ross move the football Ross is going to move the football on everybody but New England will get better as the season goes along and I think this is spot for them to show it so. I New England. They they win this game. Comfortably I think I really do believe that. They struggled defensively last week but Russell Wilson's getting the ball downfield vertically this car and the raiders do that absolutely not Ding Dong I'm asking a fit right into what Bella check wants to do and you've seen the picture making waves I love seeing ballot check looked so disgruntled like yes slept in three days yesterday in the press conference to me that solidified I mean maybe I'm getting you know led to slaughter here but as I'm even talking to you, I mean, I think New England's going to be my biggest bet the year so far. Yeah. They have to be I mean you talk about the spot you talk about the matchup you talk about the injury considerations you talk about new. England off a loss just so many things pointing in the Patriots favor and I'm shocked that this number is not seven quite frankly by the time I edit the video posted this afternoon it could very well be seven. Even cheap I. This is a spot where New England is just prime to role as you mentioned, two trips to the East Coast for Vegas already. In between a Monday night game to open up their stadium, and yet fans weren't there. But still that's a landmark moment for the franchise and to do it beating team like the New Orleans Saints, who's a fixture in that primetime type of spot. Just an awful spot for the. So I think a lot of people also coming into this season they talked about the continuity of the raiders and how they should get off to a decent start. But a lot of people don't really love the personnel for this team, and now there are probably operating at a disadvantage against new. England. So many factors we may end up looking like idiots here, and that's fine. If we do even if the raiders win this game outright. Got To run it back I bet New England minus six six and a half without a mockery it. Even, if they lose thirty points, the Patriots I have to make this bet because it's just a simple check check check fits all the handicaps for me and I'm wondering here's where. Loss I gotta lay it here I mean to me again Cam Newton right now is an upgrade over what we've seen from Tom Brady to last couple of years. So I mean big pricing in my innocence and one other thing. I mean the first trip to the east coast for the raiders wasn't that impressive to me? Yeah. They won they covered but I mean of Carolina and said off the McCaffrey Fullback Carolina win that Game Outright That to me that wasn't a good look and I wasn't stunned that they'd be the saints. I mean if there was, you know fans in the stands I think Vegas last week would have been it was my top play, but it would have been a significant for me I just I thought the atmosphere wouldn't be as good but watching I mean the pumping crowd noise is fine. You mentioned one yard. If New England gets one yard and Cam Newton scores and they went out right over Seattle this numbers probably seven minus one, fifteen seven and a half something like that. They win that game. What's this number eight and a half eight something like that. So we've got results based. Perception bias here in the market with this line being under seven and I don't think it's right. I think it's wrong and. oddsmakers generally aren't all that wrong but I think they're wrong in this spot, and both of us have consensus opinion here on the New England patriots minus six minus six and a half I think it's even good at seven. If you wind up reluctantly having to take that but trying to get the best number that you can hear on this game for sure and you'll get a lot of the best numbers if you listen to. Radio are podcasts, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. And of course, you'd get the highlight videos here on our youtube page as well. One other one here I guess we might as well talk about this on before we sight off I know we're running a little bit long here, but I know this is a game that you and I kind of have a little bit of a difference of opinion on it's the Monday night between Kansas City and Baltimore no highlight video because Brian blessing already. Talked about this game for us on our ATS Youtube Page Baltimore. Up. To three and a half market wide total up to fifty, four, fifty, four and a half in that range you and I have a difference of opinion here and we talked earlier in the show about the difference between betting and handicapping I'm handicapping you're betting and that's primarily our difference of opinion. I'm just going to take the number here. It's. Think the situations grave for Kansas City and whatnot I don't have a great outstanding Gandhi cap particularly for this game when I'll take the hook here and here's why I think this number makes a Lotta sense if it was typical home field advantage or at least close to it. Okay. I could certainly see Baltimore's a little bit better than Kansas. City even though they're defending champs, the chiefs is still won eleven straight gains coward Tanum the exception being last week right? Not they were kind of flat and maybe weren't expecting the chargers to have the type of quarterback play from the rookie but. Okay. Bombers a little bit better than than Kansas City Green have makes sense to me but with the point at half is pretty much the consensus of what we're giving teens for home field advantage. This line is saying that Baltimore at least two points better than Kansas, city on a neutral the fact that it's true. Deke number three. Frawley. Would've half points back. Kansas City on a neutral field and I'm a buying it. So I mean, they never lost US Kansas City under homes here. Here's a little bit of handicap in the month to September helis never throwing interception in the month of September Twenty Eight touchdowns, zero bits to me. I, take mahomes over Jackson. That's just me personally and reading harbaugh to the best. But right now, I'd rather have any read. So yes, sure. Give me the three and a half. Now what I'm looking at here in a lot of people are gonNA site last year's game where Kansas City basically did whatever they wanted on offense got out to a big lead. Baltimore Kinda, threatened with the late opportunity to cover but last year in this game between these two teams, Baltimore had a much different back seven than they have. Now they've basically revamped their back with a lot of in-house guys that are younger players just kind of graduated up through the system a little bit I. Think there faster I think they're more athletic. They are missing von Young who is their? Slot Corner and they won't have him for the rest of the season not a great week three missing your slot corner but they did revamp the back seven as a whole specifically the secondary. So I think they're in better shape here to cover against Kansas City and also to we have not seen a whole lot of vertical passing from Patrick Mahomes to this point, a lot of short passing get two guys out in space. Let them go ahead and make plays Harpo will make that adjustment. I don't know if the other teams that Kansas City is faced are talented enough or I think Baltimore can have success with that and I. Know because three and a half. May, but just to play devil's advocate here a little bit. You see line value with that Hook. I. See some things I kind of like the match up with Baltimore, and those are the different schools of thought you can have your not just in the NFL but in any sport when you're betting on it absolutely and those are just two different philosophies. One thing before we sign off, I want to mention. Weekend that Monday night game can't see bomber best Monday night game entire year. My opinion we've got a great Sunday night match drew brees, Aaron Rodgers, the four o'clock window and Seattle Dallas is very intriguing. The May get Hella big TV number at SEC's playing on Saturday for considering what we've went through so far twenty four are obviously an abrupt end here to the September twenty fourth edition of. Radio lots of issues with skype today I did the best I could editing audio cobbling everything together to get a podcast version out to you. The video was messed up and we did have some audio issues throughout the video as well. So we will not be doing any highlight videos from this edition of the show, and obviously, as you can hear here, I'm closing up the show myself. So our mighty they can head on over to bradpowerssports.com. Check out that powers picks newsletter is off to a very, very good start here in both the NFL and college football despite losing some of those bets with a lot of closing line value because of covid postponements. So encourage you head. Over to bradpowerssports.com checkout when he has to offer and follow him on twitter at Brad powers and the number seven coming up on our Friday edition of ATS radio I'll be giving you my week three picks for the circus sports million to I'll probably have three likely picks and a list of leans to pick from will give you my thoughts my rationale update the progress in the contest so far, and also give you an update on the West Gate Super Contest even though we are not in that one for this season they'll do. They can switch for listening everybody apologies for all of the audio issues they were not on our end.

McCartney, you know those two guys performed for us today in an amped up cover. Years Lake Morgan, maybe a made. Man. I love you. Maybe. Maybe A. John. May. Lake Morgan may be amazed. To.

Last week, we talked about the overall advantages of listening to music getting involved in arts and how that can help extend your life fight disease and keep you healthy on today's episode though we're going to focus on using music to help you with exercise. You know if if you get up one day and decide that you don't feel like working out, don't feel like exercising. Want you to try just putting on the headphones and start listening to some motivating music. Maybe a special workout playlist you might have put together and I'll bet that all of the sudden you'll get a hankering to start moving and starch workout. I urge everybody to build a playlist of the favourite workout songs music. You WanNA listen to while you're doing you're exercising, and then once you put that playlist together, keep switching out the songs create multiple play list. There is so much awesome music out there. Great motivating music out there no matter what your musical taste that you can use to include in your workout playlist. We're all different and everyone has their their own special music taste. Let me give you some general guidelines for choosing your workout music. First of all, what kind of workout are you going to be doing is like heart rate training workout. If. That's the case. CHOOSE UPBEAT UPTEMPO positive music. If you're doing a strength training workout then it's a little different. I have friends who just love to play nineteen ninety s heavy metal songs during their strength workout. With strength training, the the tempo of the music is not as important as the power. The music gives you like songs with heavy base in them when I'm doing strength training. If you're doing yoga or stretching exercises. Then maybe one a more peaceful kind of sound. Music as well. It's so very, very personal. So I, determine what you want the music to do for you. Do you need it to get you moving and then moving faster? Do you need it to give you strength? You need it to chill out. I thought about putting a suggested. Exercise playlist together. But then I was thinking workout music. It probably works best when is individualized to each person's taste and and their own determination of what motivates them. The important thing is to include music maybe not in every workout sometimes it's motivating enough just to. Look. Around and engage with your surroundings. Other Times though music can kick start your workout and drive you to to give it your best. There is a study out there that determined that runners who listened to motivating music during a race. That they completed the race faster than runners who weren't listening to music. You. Know all about endorphins. Those cool chemicals that your body releases when you exercise, make you feel good one study found that listening to music releases other body chemicals associated with pleasure. Music also, it'll help you maintain your pace while you're working out. The rhythm of the music that you're listening to the beaded, it gets you moving in step with the song and let me ask you this even though I know the answer. Do, you ever get bored during a work apple music it will help distract you from that boredom. Keep you going. And One more thing listening to music during your recovery period. After a workout, it will actually help to bring your heart rate down as you cool down and recover. Web Radio Today Homework. Start listening to music and find your favorite workout songs.

We've been discussing music on these past two episodes, how it needs to be an important part of our lives, how it helps us with exercising especially how it helps us to lower stress how it can help us escape sometimes. I was also thinking about how music how it helps us connect with. God. Do you notice how? Sometimes. Ensure. The music it can. Connect you directly to Jesus in a way that sometimes the sermons camp. For most of my life, I had a I had a real problem singing in church. I know I probably sing off key and I don't WanNa ruin the saw sometimes I don't know all the words. Trying to work past that but I do love listening to music and Church it helps me to feel the presentation Jesus. I enjoy watching the faces of the people in the choir. With a musical group. So the soloist or the musicians playing their instrument I can see their logo of Jesus interfaces as the sang as they play the song. In my church, we stand for every song is being song. And I live in Nashville. So music is a big thing here and that musical part of the service it's it's so entertaining. It's wonderful but it's pretty long in an old guy like me gets tired standing so long. But I enjoyed so much because it gives me a time to think about how much I love Jesus, how much God has done for me in my life especially this year. It's amazing to me the talent that God gave to the people who can sing and play what what a wonderful gift from God. and. Then those that use that talented praise gone and the joy you can see on their faces and makes me remember and think of the joy that I have in my personal relationship with Jesus. Joy? Comfort. Safety piece it's all there when you give your life to Jesus. If there's anybody listening to the podcast today if you haven't done that yet, what are you waiting for? Change Your Life and so many positive ways. I'm not saying life's going to beat museum factor will probably get harder after you decide to walk Ajay's. which you will have a friend who will never ever forsake you in this life of the NAP. Giving your life to Jesus ensures that he will support you through the rubble time. He will give you forgiveness. He will give you comfort. It will give you peace and he will give you everlasting life. If you haven't already given your life to Jesus. Please do it real soon. You don't know what the future holds there may not be any. Tom. Walk into any church until the first person you meet that you're lost and you need Jesus to help you find your way. You're going to put a smile on their face. You'll probably make a friend for life and and they'll introduce you to someone who already loves. You knows everything about you. His name is Jesus. Knows your troubles knows. The bad things you've done? He's been watching your life and he's never lost his love for you. He suffered and died on the cross so that your sins can be forgiven. Think about how deep that love.

I'm leaning on Marshall here as well Edgar Algebra doing some preview stuff and some season win totals I put my situational betting tips article for next week's games for skin be a season starts on really bad I this is kind of theme across all of College football this year where I just I don't know what I'm GonNa get from these teams because there are so many jekyll and Hyde any teams power rated I mean actually they would be all three of them be the lowest power eighteens I've ever had in my bowring's been doing this decade plus now that to me performances I've actually got this game six and a half because I respect what Ford Atlantic is done here of late but maybe I shouldn't because as you said the one opponent they've really played peon and I I think there's a lot of truth to what he said and he basically said as a head coach you never knew what you're GonNa get what you have different team every school or a school or something like that you don't have to go two way power blueblood program to get noticed anymore so you've got some has you'll he's always willing to come on the show here in join us but we start on Friday here Brad Game Three Oh nine three ten Marshall and Florida Atlantic Fau a five and a half I'm interested in here game three eleven three twelve pitt and Syracuse pit three and a half point favorite up at what used to be the carrier Dome I don't know what they call it now they got I think it's tough because you know you look at this. Fau Schedule and they play Ohio State and UCF coming right out of the start of the season after some key losses from last year then cominated that box score so against Middle Tennessee so I think to misleading finals in these two teams last you know as far as their opponent against Middle Tennessee last two weeks to me that's great and valuable but again we'll see I I don't think it's a bargain I mean to me a bargain on Marshall being you know getting six and a half instead of five this and every single book radio percent of our friends over at GSI Sports Phoebe and number two hundred is that Promo Code One hundred percent deposit naturalist of the Sports Orlando game are coming out of that one is the rest of the market and I don't see a tremendous amount of value but you know one of the wise guys favorite stats it's weird I wanNA say parody but but on the on the other side at the top and bottom of college football like just mentioned never better it's never been worse on the four games that they're supposed to win beating really inferior competition marshalls a tough one to me because some weeks they look pretty good some weeks they look really into a big tiff with carrier before the start of the season which nobody paid attention to except for me total fifty one and a half here in this game what do you think about this one on Friday night the ACC so unhappy but again just lean for me on the thundering herd yeah I don't really like this game too much in fact I don't really like too much about three of the four Friday Games but one ask four games actually beat them on the stats sheet that was Middle Tennessee and if you compare Marshall Play Middle Tennessee the week prior Marshall lost outright is a favourite but Marshall which doesn't always go in I mean obviously you know Matt you not the strength of your units are obviously into a power reading but not specific you know matchups against an opponent recorders of last week's game against NC state for Syracuse as a major issue for them even though my power ratings say Syracuse play the match up advantage along here in this game neither one of these teams run the football both of these teams five point four yards per play on offense the differences pit is top ten in yards per play because of that great on Defense Syracuse I think it was seventy six or something like that so there well down the board defensively compared to pit and other than what they've been in years past compared to the Alabama clemson's it's the bottom ten I mean I'm talking Umass Akron Connecticut or about as low as I've ever had the blue raiders reminded three turnovers led the game at halftime and you know we're driving to the back door late through a pick so maybe not as impressive for me on that he's fifty four I'm guessing you're much lower on Syracuse I've got pit forty five I've got Syracuse Sixty eight fair enough so you know to in the country in sacks twenty seven so far this season was syracuse's main weakness on offense well given up Sachs they've allowed twenty six more than three and a half range as far as pure power rating fau had misleading game last week. We're very fortunate Middle Tennessee out I down amount yard them but it's this year that's bottom five in the country so top five in the country getting at for the quarterback versus bottom five in the country protecting your quarterback and if you watch the first this game absolutely let me ask you what what you know I don't need the the actual powering but were you have these teams ranked Pitt forty two early in past years our power ratings have generally tended to be pretty close but I think because we've got that level of inconsistency with all these teams in the middle you and I are him that should mean automatic bet for me on the orange I'm worried and here's what I'm worried I think there's a big mismatch you look at Pitt their number empower rings are pretty strong at Syracuse here it's Galaxy Syracuse by half so obviously when he got four points a discrepancy around key numbers right around the pick them higher power and higher at the end of last year just because they're so dominant week after week after week I'd just think there with the Ohio State Seattle issues the Oklahoma's all those teams are much like pit I also liked the under because Syracuse top ten on Sax as well with the twenty or something like that so I could see a lot of third long here in I've been everybody in the middle shake him up both but pull a number out of a hat but th- th- There's teams I certainly Alabama cons and I had titus two and a half so you and I are a little bit in that regard but I do like Pitt by three and a half year for the reasons that you just mentioned because Syracuse is probably going to face a lot of third it's one of those things too where again I mean you've got a syracuse team that's had some inconsistent performances pit obviously has to and I think between you and I use up with more discrepancies this year that we've had in the past Yadda great how how much have you downgrade circuit since the start of the season well I'd have to go back and look all right fair enough are building your line so it's a little bit of a teaching moment there again that prevented me from betting that the orange I like pit here we my Paul ratings no you gotta pit team here it's you know playing some pretty decent teams played at UCF played a Penn state teams that are you know top ten top fifteen in people's power ratings right now so I hostage as far as the handicapped on again I mean I had syracuse seventy six and a half my top team was ninety six and a half coming into the year that was Clemson so I moved down ten points addition to Saturday Duke and Virginia Game Three Seventeen three eighteen Virginia eight three point favorite in this game pretty much market wide and it's mostly three other than that I still think they're solid their last two games which they lost against Notre Dame Virginia had the yardage there they lost by fifteen why thank you do a great job so I turn in the host they're asking you questions but I'm very inquisitive person and I'm just trying to see what you're seeing that maybe I'm not and I got out about a five and a half six points and it's not like I was extremely high on the orange in fact I think bet against him more my game of the year big bets I took floor will block fumbled at the Miami Twenty our line then settled for a bunch of field goals I just you you've played the tougher schedule their veteran yards they lose an outstanding corner and Bryce Saul he's a preseason all Americans out for the year but we're here's what I think I get it they can't protect their quarterback Bryce Perkins Yeah I've got Syracuse about ten points from the start of the year but obviously all right I just had and asking the difference right difference right there all right I will again another team that I just don't know NCAA and t's a very good FCS team Kudos to them for that blowout win they beat Middle Middle Tennessee state on the road middle at this time of the year yeah I mean and nobody's you know obviously they have their deficiencies but who doesn't outside those top eight teams flat now total of forty five hosting the blue devils I disagree with the line moved here there's a lot of negativity about Virginia right now and played differential than Duke how in the hell is this line only five to me especially matchup wiser genius wanted covered the last four meetings against Duke I mean ars we've got a lot of games to try and get to here on today's show we'll get to as many of them as we can as time permits I know Brad set a very busy media schedule this week so certainly want to respect his time oh in college football so I just again I don't understand but again I mean here we are weak eight than you know what are the Z. Status a team that just can't score they move the football and they can't score Virginia Tech's not very good the loss to pit Georgia Tech not particularly good Georgia Tech's should've covered aww that's our discrepancy and that's our difference right there so we'll see how this Friday night game plays out extremely have a couple of teams that I think we've kind of had to move around a little bit here as we burl last week they went for two early in the in the second half didn't get it lost by at and of course I was on Georgia tech that one but I agree with you I I think that a lot of people are down about thirty or so spots power things that may have been too high maybe I give dino vapors too much credit coming into the year and I was kind of playing catch up a little bit with them concerns me that I don't understand the line but I'm going to have a pretty significant better on Virginia here my my pure power any number has this closer to seven in Atlanta this lines all over the place but for the most part here six or six and a half now the consensus number up from five total fifty six and a half starting Virginia because they haven't looked the part of being a division favorite but there's still a really good team and that's kind of the perception that we deal with you interesting I I think we're going to split the difference here my number's four and a half on this game so I do disagree with the line move much like you my lines not quite as high for Duke it's GonNa be tough for them here in this spot because all they've done a score in their last five games so with a very low total here on this one probably suggests that Virginia is the right side I'm not going to have a bat here I mean my gut instinct says after back to back losses armies the right side but little bit worried I mean they've been pushed around they've scored at least thirty points and all of them and you're gonNA total here a forty five which suggests to me that Virginia probably is the right side of dukes not going to score then Georgia state armies opponent this week I think as a legit offense I mean especially running the football I mean put up three fifty on the ground last week against Coastal Carolina get beat up pretty good on Syracuse coming up here then I'll get much more aggressive with my downgraded them so I I appreciate talking this through I like this make an aside they're mice foreign turnovers last week you diving on the box score they controlled matters I mean they had stopped on downs at the Miami Twenty four had a thirty eight yard field Sudan I mean when I got a couple of really good data points because these teams played such dispirit schedules and how good is the data point you mention this is where the loss of j Bateman really comes into play defense according to now at North Carolina I thought that was a problem for them coming into the season and again here if you're looking at a high scoring in North Carolina teach solid but I mean still enough CS team I think Virginia Played William and Mary and then you know the old dominion in one of the world that these teams play couple of weeks their offense hasn't gotta go when and Western Kentucky shut that option down last week West Kentucky Ladies and gentlemen has a legit defense this year James Data points that I can start isolating digging into something I do look at him and you know you look at Dukes Games in outside of the game against Alabama Edel wrong Syracuse was favored in Tallahassee. So man coming into this season I didn't think I was at high so I'll have to you know I really respect you I think lines about right here I wanna I wanNA back army and say they get a bounce back but I'm not sure it's going to be easy against this Georgia state team type of game which a total in the mid to upper fifties is very high for an option game I think that you're pretty concerned here about army this spot my numbers five I'm not gonNA play it again crushed by by purdue I wanNA like I wanNA believe in Indiana but the reality is I'm just not a huge fan of their head coach I don't even know if their head coach has a good pulse on it I've been up now obviously they're all that good feeling from the first two weeks also a spot now where I don't know if Loxley can make any improvements with this team again quarterback injuries they have that year in and year out you know how good of a data point how much can we trust that in that's the question mark we have that's why sometimes I think it gets easier in college football November because then multiple conferences Alan I think he's more of a defensive coordinator than head coach I do like that he make a made the decision to go to Michael Panics who I think has higher upside than a guy like paint Ramsey China that's coming off the heels I think they put up almost seven hundred yards of offense against Arkansas state a couple of weeks ago Georgia state's a legit team and let's of Lee pretty good we'll see other winds up faring here against the option but army now what we expected and also too if army's not going to be as efficient on offense I think the Anna is improving but I agree with the skepticism about them so and easy stay away game there but when I did want to get some thoughts on here this week on the show and quite frankly kept park total up from fifty six and a half to fifty nine out there in the marketplace barreling again a team I just don't have a great pulse on in that game we want to give him three twenty three twenty four here army and Georgia state suppressing loss last week for arm against Western Kentucky now they're back out on the road what an interesting spot for army here to be sure about game three twenty seven twenty eight Indiana and Maryland Indiana five and a half point favorite heading east to college I mean now the pilgrims been named the starter again here for this week I've got this one in the four four and a half range myself so I think you and I are kind of feeling the same way here about Maryland and and this is yeah I mean it's a tough one obviously armies nowhere near as good as what did they been at least last year I I gotta right around five and a half nice to see this line coming down a little bit yeah I mean a little bit I mean looking at it I think it's a big game boy aspirations for both teams another power ratings called Maryland decide year I'm passing yeah favorite across the board here one and a half to two pretty much the number there were some two and a half early on in the week total of sixty eight and a half year you surprise in my power rings are saying in Maryland to play but again you know what's my confidence level in Maryland I got really good data points it got really bad ones including last week day supply here but but the reality is I mean come on Willie taggart versus Dave clawson sounds like a mismatch to me yet does I agree maybe blowout wins over our Syracuse at long-on at this point pure power rating for me has it like more Indiana three and a half year so you know that spectators for wake forest they played the Knowles Twenty seven times since Florida state joined the ACC bag in nineteen ninety two the average line in those twenty yes and the funny thing is I mean I look at my line coming into the season for this game and it was almost like twenty two teams are really in different directions here Jordan says you mentioned off ah I'll say this I mean I get why they won the box score last week I mean they were that he filed that game you know the play by play they were trailing majority from talking about it by myself after our segment so figuring game to get out of the way in three thirty one three thirty to four to state and wake forest wake forest because like pulling teeth in segment. I mean I do have a discrepancy here because I've been a little bit higher on Florida state in the marketplace I agree in fact there were some questions as to whether or not harm would just outright be the starting quarterback here this year seems like going with Newman was the right call I've got wake forest minus two and a half year but seven meetings for statements twenty four and wake so this is only second time in two thousand seven meetings they've been favored so the powering say force I've ever seen that in a game that didn't go like five six seven times just in regulation to have forty five thousand lives I I can't recall ever seen that before and props to lose back that here this week I think it should be a fun game I think the over I think I got sixty six last week in Louisville and wake forest will be the easiest win I ever have in college applied aside for I mean Florida State's clear the play my powering Simon rocked team favorite I got floors stay by to hear you know intriguing thing to me as you know there's now so Max and I've been a little bit lower on like four so in our lowest surprises there are some under money coming in here I think both teams running pace and was upset last week I mean coastal is the better team in yards per play so that would concern me although Georgia southern obviously I'll have to look through my portfolio this week but I two and a half three I think they open and this one Georgia southern hasn't been impressed that though I mean they do come in off a bi coastal margin when the expectation is going to be one less Tutton of nearly one less touchdown scored the game so yeah that's very intriguing to say the least an interesting side has not dropped at all it's still six and a half pretty much market wide and the total is come down to a five points from the open we like to talk about games that a lot of shows aren't going to talk about much to Brad chagrined quite possibly here but in three thirty three thirty four Coastal Carolina and Georgia. I got to see this I it's really hard for me to back a team that had forty first downs last week forty and still lost the damn game going props to Scott Satterfield the job that he's done but I mean they were on their third quarterback of the euro ready get sixty two points against wake forest so I can't really in a bunch last year there's not nunes obviously higher upside I think it should be you know a point to point and a half or so nothing significant no I I completely you got it lined at six and a half and you know it's pretty much a game I'm probably just going to wind up staying away from but again very nice numbers grab from you there and that's why we do the powerade in that game by two touchdowns plus so they were they had to throw from behind them the Georgia that game against Louisville but still incredible to I don't I don't here it seemed like sixteen probably would have been good enough for this game but now we're up as high as seventeen and a half out there in the market and again this is one that goes with totals Pierpaolo says Georgia southern's the play I got more like seven and a half and I did bet I think and I'm trying to think what circa open I wanna see get back to your life with CBD Medic Available Online and at cvs these statements have not been evaluated by the FDA this product is not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease. Yeah I mean and Dave Clawson's defensive-minded guy by and large it's brutal yeah he's kind of changed his tune a little bit here I wake the last couple of years Ayar those per week that I don't have to sweat but this is a game that could very well fly into the seventies and it wouldn't surprise me at all but not really strong opinions on the side here for this one Bourgon just go back to wake forest game from last week against Louisville and if you WANNA see a finance I'm a little surprised by that but when it comes to things again they're not the be all end all but if you can grab some good line value there certainly worth their weight in gold in that respect they are I wake up and I'm very early we got knocked around a little bit great grab from you you know obviously seal vs kind of been up and down here so far this year in a lot of different ways but an excellent Grad there to get significant line on Sunday morning 'cause circa releases those eleven am on Sunday so it's an early wake-up call on Sunday make sure I got at least a jump start on of coming down from fifty one to his lowest forty seven and a half so favorite going up total coming down I guess the question here is do you think Tulsa can score ah yeah I'm looking back here through Circus twitter time it did open two and a half total forty eight and a half on this one so they were closer on the total the side great hours do now kids don't try that at home I promise you I can't wait for the off season just so you can actually catch up a little bit on sleep and get some play the much tougher schedule just a slight lean for me on the home team through key number here seven when my powering call at through key number I at least gotTa lean fifty and a half to forty five yeah dink suppress scoring usually would mean that there are at least be some correlation on the underdog tougher to give I got my concerns a lot more confident with Talso prior last week's game against Navy I we talked about it on last week Shohei tough handicapped we some concerns about the status of Jimmy Newman driving this line I'm sure he'll play but he's obviously not one hundred percent I mean look my lines two and a half minutes good at quarterback I mean right kind of a break off season rather that's a good point all right three thirty nine three forty here Tulsa and Cincinnati Cincinnati actually taking money in my power rankings. Yeah but you don't sleep anyway you're just a machine yeah I'm coming off Afford that I just broke my all time record I did forty one straight this week forty one it'd be interesting to see what the emotions are both teams I mean they came out they looked okay early and then just Were completely worn down by navy as the game went on I the line moved here I mean my powers at ut in APPs on Cincinnati. I guess I'm just I'm pretty big on Cincinnati this year I just think available online at C._B._S. these statements have not been evaluated by the F._D._a. this product is not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease dump down the board here Byu hosting Boise State Boise State a seven point favorite here another total coming down thoughts on this one as you chuckle as I mentioned Syria I bought my margin in my newsletter by seven so so not much value for the I'm Boise here I'm actually boise minus eight here in this one maybe I've got a little bit interesting to see that line shooting up the total shooting down and again kind of tells you about what the expectation is for the game flow here so if you're looking for maybe alive number he goes out the backup Romney does not play particularly well in his you know appearance there in that game I'm really worried about that for Byu that the quarterback position had beaten Tennessee and USC back to back weeks and now after a blowout loss against Washington and Games quite frankly Kalani Pataki you gotta win very concerning for them so I like Boise here this week I probably won't take it now that at seven at six and a half to two and a half for circa I would've been happy to to jump into the oh I mean obviously we got some quarterback issues here you know Bach Meyer the true freshman for Boise State's head kind of an up and down season but I mean relatively the opportunity certainly looks like also may have problems to score in this game so that maybe one of the ways that you want to look at it game three fifty five fifty six we take a big old evalu- and in fact the circuit number two and a half so I wish I could have jumped on that one I was on Byu last week and like you said they should've won the game I had a massive overlay last year played pretty well early on in this season we've got our idea of how much guy like that's worth and sometimes it's just winds up being more than you thought you know obviously Cincinnati controls their own destiny now in the American I get a comfortable win but it's about right to me I mean I put it at seventeen what are they might line was ten market was four and a half on that one but if Jaren Hall doesn't go out with a concussion Byu probably wins that game and covers org number opens Cincinnati minus thirteen so at least I was close to the oddsmakers number I wasn't close to the market number maybe I do have to downgrade Tulsa a little bit maybe I have to forward obviously Byu's already going to back up what with Wilson out for them. They played a couple of different quarterbacks last week probably shouldn't won the gaming in south forty diving the doc score but I mean that was a bad loss I mean you look at what we thought of. Byu coming out at maybe the the SEC game at that point I mean Byu it's Cincinnati a little bit because as you said since he's been playing really well here of late and you know again that Ohio state loss it was kind of Marquee Game Luke fickle and all the ars my disparity line in my newsletter handicapped so it's a passer me I've actually got fourteen here which was closer number I know it's a tough place to play as a bad spot from you gotTa Win Toledo you gotTa Win South Florida particularly off a bye there I don't even get any it does I mean I got a chance to see hall at the end 'cause Wilson I mean obviously if you don't watch Wilson Zack Wilson. Byu regular stars. I've been impressed you know had kind of a hip pointer last week I mean if you read horses quotes after the game he said he was going to be fine moving up is when you get to that third guy and that would be a major concern. If you're looking to bet the cougars this week yeah find out the Jaren Hall's not GonNa play I may go ahead and take fool their quarterback thing as a big time problem and it's always tough too because you wonder exact Wilson obviously played very well at the end Johnny Manziel flared him I mean he's okay he's better than okay pretty good but I didn't what I thought was watching hall at the standardisations one of these days buddy 'cause I know my goodness integrity fees right yeah exactly all right how about game three sixty IRRITIB- with that a lot of teams their asses kicked bio state here this year a lot of teams already have so you know maybe I'm just a little bit too low on the bearcats here but get tough handicap I wish I could like come in I love this pick and I'm betting that this won't be one of them I mean I'm closer to like five and a half percent on three sixty to hear a little bit of a flip favorite scenario Toledo was a one and a half point favorite ball state now a one and a half point favorite again interesting movement so you had a smile on your face with last week's game how does Toledo bounce back from what happened last week. I'm not sure they do here. I mean theme and the segment quarterback in Z. State but again concussions obviously we're not sure no standardization college injury reports so we probably won't know until pretty close the gametime so kind of origin on the great Byu a little too much that was the case in the disparity my powering but now I mean I didn't care for your at Alabama forgive me why you if you're at Alabama and you're going to third string guys tweak the last two weeks really they relied heavily running the football so they're kind of changing up their game played a little bit as bad as Ohio has been this year if balls the total here down from sixty and a half to as low as fifty seven which is at Pinnacle so obviously the sharp side being the under here in this game gotta ask man so again another quarterback injury concern I mean boss state has it been overly impressive but Kudos I mean they pulled back the back weeks or they've trailed eight beats Toledo or does the same thing comes from behind there's got to be a fade spot coming up at some point maybe it's absolutely absolutely all right so games by double digits and somehow found a way to win on the Road Against Northern Illinois and Eastern Michigan. I don't think there's a tremendous amount of value here but I I would lean what the cardinals there's a lot of unknown and you know sometimes the drop off from the first to second string can be quite sparse with sometimes an even bigger lean Washington I you know I kind of was on the under here and let me play this out for I mean if you look at both teams scoring offense as you see that their top thirty so for added twenty in that game got her in this line moves sayings probably more instead of questions is more doubtful that the backup quarterback the regular backup Eli Peters a combined twenty five points five games twenty five points so organs it's probably the Best Oregon Defense statistically I've seen at least in my life Washington this week but if it's good enough they're gonNA throw more chaos at the end of the pack twelve yeah I mean my numbers one Oregon by one so I'd certainly table I think generally speaking when Oregon football last decade plus you're thinking offense honestly it's been the defense especially last five games were organs allowed ineffective Carter Bradley had to come in and those two guys combined for like six hundred fifteen for sixty six yards just couldn't I mean we're just not capable at all eight Penn State Clemson five so Oregon's played very very well defensively and we would expect Washington to be good defensively despite some of the losses that but then you look at the two teams offense is especially when they face capable defenses I mean neither once had that much success organ against Auburn Twenty one points against Stanford injuries I mean Gudani regular guy was fine and the game I mean I'm not they weren't gonNA cover against Bowling Green but they could want was healthy I mean he was seventeen I don't think so either but one thing I will say here as you mentioned you know ball state erasing some deficits you know this is a team that really threw the ball a lot early on in the year see up to a ten point favorite now at some of the squarer shops still nine and a half some extra juice at some of the others which I don't get the extra juice nine and a half but that in mind here too now that we're in the month of October we're going to start seeing snow and in the mountain west and then some of these other places wind is going to be a tremendous factor pay attention to those a gimmick they probably should have one in the opener Nevada's not very good Montana's a capable FCS team but they're just outgunned by Oregon Stanford they're not very good it's time a while here and that's the problem with some good teams really bad teams there's a lot of inconsistency in the middle some weeks we go to these games and we just don't wide receiver unit in the country I mean they throw it three or four guys at you that's about just about as good as anybody not named Alabama Clemson from the wide receiver position I think tens of pretty solid number when you look at this game here USC according to Sagger in space the number four schedule in the country and this is eight on the east coast but they were beating Washington and then they go ahead and get outscored thirty eight to ten in the second half of that one met I'll late night and a half but from that game here we go back into the power five conferences here and I mean this is a game that does friend the Marquis game of the week I guess I would say three sixty seven three sixty eight Oregon despite the win over Washington Cal's pretty good team and as you mentioned Oregon scored seventeen points in that game then Colorado Kinda sucks so Oregon's really getting test for the first Oh what a team's going yeah when you got the you haven't been tested for four or five weeks at a time I mean certainly a lot of uncertainty but you know I'll be on the weekend from a competitive aspect I think so too and obviously the forecast not looking great in Seattle here this week so maybe that lead you a little bit more towards the under and twenty one against cal seventeen Washington's offense against the three best defensive they've face nineteen against Cao twenty eight se thirteen at Stanford I this and there are a lot of teams like this and it's kind of crazy to see this in week eight Oregon really hasn't been tested all that much the last five games they lose that game too we've had a lot of attrition to the NFL draft here especially in the secondary over the last couple of years so that is something that has kind of impacted them a little bit the thing about it is Carolina I talked about this spot last week I talked about high really liked South Carolina not just to cover the number win the game outright then they go and beat Georgia and we're just minus two and turnovers so I think USC's body of work is much more impressive than they're being given credit for finally for the first time on today's show you and I have a line humor the show here but to see this number coming down a little bit bookmaker four and a Half Pinnacle five with Florida a road favorite at Williams Brice against he comes away with a little bit of a laugher for win I maybe it doesn't work out that way but I do kind of like the trojans here based on the handicap that I'm seeing for this one our forecast tried to get out in front of those totals moves they should definitely help you as we go throughout the rest of the season here came three sixty nine seventy Arizona and USC three you're on the roads at night in South Bend I mean get worked over pretty good at that point but they kept battling and keen slow visit is certainly threw it all up for me I don't know what to do with this week's game I I have no idea I like Florida I think the market has upgraded South Carolina too come back you know four four good performances for them or at least four wins and then are actually beating Washington at halftime I know it was really let's little game on time I think there could be some value here on Byu 'cause he looked you know capable of being incapable and I think I thought the market probably would down much from last week I get it I mean I guess it could be a flat spot for Florida off the Auburn Lsu game but I mean they got a bye on deck into me you can't in the same place at eleven and a half if you get a straight nine and a half back on this game or want to take one of them that's out there now I kind of like us just sort of feels to me like a spot where US Jason I guess maybe Michigan and Penn State but Michigan can go to Hell Oregon's eight three point favorite here in this one total forty nine and a half I don't know what we're GonNa get from an upgrade over Matt Fink had the great performance against Utah but yeah I I came away impressed I mean SC legitimately has a top three or four in Washington but but but I really liked the under here that makes it a whole lot of sense you'll get Oregon team here top five in yards per play out actually the three teams ahead of them Wisconsin Ohio Washington by two touchdowns in a game that you know I mean things just didn't work out in their favor but that was a Matt Fink game there and they outgained Washington by two yards about game three seventy three or go ahead now I agree with you go to game three seventy three seventy four and guess what we've got quarterback questions again US sometimes I like it and see if you can if you can price the uncertainty accordingly you can ask some of your easiest winters but I again I think it's at least the most intriguing you talk about another theme of the segment here up a Noun Arizona's up and down I mean ready to throw that entire team in the trash after the game and weeks zero then the the yet three and three is disappointing especially for a program the stature of USC lost in what double overtime to Byu by three loss in order name by three last week lost South Carolina but also South Carolina's defense played really really well last week and was on the field a ton I don't know if they can bail the gamecocks out this lose a South Carolina at this point I mean Kaz South Carolina's already had the tiebreaker Georgia then get the tiebreaker over Florida my goodness I guess that's a high motivating factor for the game the nice winter their southern Miss Pointer point and a half favourite going down to rust in another total coming down a little bit to what do you think about this one yeah I'm in Kyle trash just looked apart that's his first rose start death valley at night march in the team up and down the field I like the gators here I think five cheap although it's you know he didn't answer the football overheat took care of it but South Carolina's offense looks much much different with him I the under does make a little bit of sense here with the quarterback on certainly ticket against Florida last week by half a point I shouldn't catch that ticket I came away impressed I mean damn all in a league play caller and Zach Lowe last time these two teams played Arizona my worst beats ever I think there's like ninety seconds left in the game lot texts like pick them or minus one or two or something like that I like I like four quite a bit just those listening so that's kind of a bad for me best bet and here's another kind of a best bet for me on lots AC I mean I think it should be welcome ever anyway sixty seven here thoughts on this game I grew the Mova Guy like eleven and a half I mean I came away impressed with that see I mean you're down twenty but I can't disagree with anything that you've said here especially with the spot for LA attack double revenge and also you know very well rested Russians a pretty tough place to play on mystically yards per game low-tech sputter points per game differential low-tech better yards per play differential at this one six and I'm not touching South Carolina it'd be Florida or nothing for me again Ryan Linski yeah he may start the game but God knows if he finishes it and to carry on joyner take a look at the Florida side how about three eighty three eighty four southern Miss Louisiana tech you and I were both on southern miss last week didn't understand that line or the move came on dog in this type of range I this is a hard handicapped but something tells me lands the right side what do you think acid and then we'll spend a few minutes on the NFL You'VE GOT TO LANE IN MEMPHIS MEMPHIS a four point favorite total up to fifty nine and a half year two lane is such a barking because much as they did last week so lean Florida I don't know if I'm GONNA play it of this line does keep coming down maybe there's a chance that I do the only way I can play this game Alfred season didn't you watch the George I thought it was yeah sure so I mean I'm not a doctor or anything but what you said there makes a whole lot of sense I'm not sure I'll take Louisiana tech but I certainly won't be against them so I'll be rooting for you here in that one one more game I do WanNa touch on just because I think it's doc here is Ryan Lansky for South Carolina GonNa be Hundred Percent Kiss I'm in a way that injury looked waves limping around last week I I came back and won anyways tough anti cap I mean both teams have played similar schedules in terms of strength both teams in the top twenty yards per play differential I'm PAT rested their awful

Hey Amy thanks so much for coming back on the show today amber. Thanks so much for having me. So if you remember I, do late to ask an icebreaker question on travel since I'm a travel agent. Since you've been on before, I'm going to change it up I'm going to ask you where do you really want to go and travel to once we kind of start traveling again. Well my next I guess sort of bucket list place would-be Israel. That was next on my list. I have a friend who had a trip planned out on even if that's still happening anymore that he was going to lead. because. He's kind of a genius in the whole Biblical history and Arche- archeology You know and so. Yeah, in that world. Yeah. And so that's probably Good list. But Yeah I've got other things going on that might prevent that from happening and that's that's a big trip to plan for take. So we'll see but but that's the first one that POPs to mind. Yeah that is exciting. I have never done that trip and I definitely would like to do that. So it will be interesting just as time unfolds like how international travel starts to look you know going back to those places, Europe and all that kind of site right now it just seems like. A far distance right now. Yes unfortunately. So Okay so I love that answer and I hope you get to go one day I really do and Yeah. So for those that Mr First episode. On the show, how about you share with us your name where you live how many kids you have and their ages. Okay. So I'm Amy Parker I live in Murfreesboro I have two boys one who's technically an adult. Actually. He's very much technically an adult. He's twenty six. Now he isn't adult. Is Very much so. And then a sixteen year old at home distance learning. Yeah. Let's take a moment of silence. Gosh those funny. Yeah and so for people who don't know where Murphy Spurs in Tennessee. So just want to let everybody know that Yeah and Middle Tennessee. Not far from me yeah okay. So how about you share with us? A little bit more about yourself in regards to how you got to where you are today. So it kinda catches the listeners up to speed if they didn't get a chance to hear you the first time around. So. I. Have Been Writing now for I guess almost twenty years more like maybe probably fifteen of doing my own books but it started with an internship I was studying. I was an English major at MT issue here in Murfreesboro. And I did an internship with Tommy Nelson fell in complete love with the whole publishing industry fast forward a few years I'd done some editing and writing for them I was a contractor editor for them I did freelance them after a job as an editor, but that's another story. But. I worked from home as an editor, and then I I was getting my son to sleep one night the three year old the now sixteen year old I was getting him to sleep one night. And it was just not working I was not getting him to sleep actually and I'd sung all the songs. We'd read all the books and he was still just wiggling in the bed. Did I mentioned he's a redhead. Yeah I don't think so maybe. All of those stereotypes. Yeah. So I looked out the window and I said the trees are sleeping and he's always been sort of an impact and so he got a little bit quieter and looked out the window and I'm like, okay, that's working and And I said the birds are sleeping and a few rounds of that he went to sleep and I went to sleep too and I woke up, it was one of those lightning bolt moments I woke up in the middle of the night with just this verse ringing in my head. And? Fast forward a little bit. I took that to work and they said we're looking a bedtime book and I sit and just wrote one in they're kind of like what? Are you reading books, but you know. Somebody gave it to her and she said Yeah let's do this and that one became a night prayer. And apparently, I wasn't the only person has issues getting my child to sleep at night. So it became. A fairly popular series. So now we've said Yeah. We've said night night to. Night Zoo night jungle night farm night train. So It. We've been doing those for for over a decade now. Yeah. That is so awesome. So I wanted to have you on the show kind of talk about. Some of your new books that are have they come out or are they coming out? So night, night Pumpkin which is the latest in the night series that one released in. July at the end of July, which is kind of a weird time to release a Pumpkin book but got to get out there and get on show horse so that you can buy in time or the fall. Yeah. Yes. So that one released in July, and then how to get a mommy to sleep how to get a daddy to sleep those are superfund and those are picture books unlike the night which those are board books. Those release. September first Oh. Okay. Cool. Alright. So let's just jump back to nine Pumpkin. And Kinda just share with US I'm wide. You wrote it is it mainly because you love fall so much or what what came to mind when you wanted to do this book So we decided to do a series of seasonal night night. So night night. Angel night night. Pumpkin. Night Valentine night night buddy. So night night bunny released. This past spring and then night night pumpkin. I thought okay. What do we? What do we love? That's and that's exactly how I wrote it. I thought why do I love most about the fall? What do you envision when you when you think of the fall in? So I've got apples and of course, Pumpkin is referring to that the little puppy child on the cover and he's dressed as a pumpkin. Pumpkin throughout the the entire book. So pumpkin actually refers to the child. So when you say nine Pumpkin, you're saying to your child. Yeah. So like all of the night books. We take you to this setting to this false setting unlike all of the night books but like all of the night both. We walked through the steps, the bedtime routine. So it helps your child to establish a bedtime routine although they don't know that's what we're doing. Is Sort of just walk through at night time routine. So but with Pumpkin we talk about we walked through all of the things we love about fall believes pumpkins baking pumpkin pie with your mom. There's a corn maze, their apples. Just. Riding there's like a hayride in it. So it's just very fallen at the end, their roasting marshmallows and. Yes, and there's the cover on these seasonal books. The cover has like a glittery moon on it. That sounds yeah it was cute I. Love It. I just kept thinking how many people love Pumpkin Latte taste but you won't get his book. You probably heard that in there just to be like mommy needs a pumpkin spice latte right now while I'm talking to you. More than once. Again reviewing it, it would not be weird to see a mother holding a cup of coffee. In here but I think she's holding a pump. Oh No, she's holding flowers. Okay. Yeah. We could superimpose a little. pointy. Okay. So let's move to the Mommy. Daddy one tells how you came up with that and what the? The. Exact titles are again. So it's how to get a mommy to sleep and how to get a daddy to sleep. And so they'll go ahead. How did you with this one? So we've been saying night night to our kids for over a decade now like I said and I thought how fun would it be to sort of flip that on its end let the kids tell us how to get their parents to sleep, and so the back cover copy is even reads like a how to book with the tips in this book you'll have mommy ready for bed before you know it be sure to wake her up nice and early. Day right by her side all day long surprise her with something really special which actually frog. And read all her favorite books before bed. So it's it's just sort of this tongue in cheek. How to book on how kids wear us out every day I love that got great book. I have four on. You know even people who are just having newborns right like Hirsch our guests. Funny thing like this is what's coming down the pipeline type. Thanks. To expand what's really interesting. When you have young children I. Love It. Okay. So there's another book that I think you co authored with possibly it's called the big book is a Bible questions the big book of Bible. As. We call it the BBQ. Okay. Yeah. So this really interesting and more for older kids. So I wanted to kind of highlight this a little bit since the other one is geared towards the younger ones. So share with us. How this came about and What who would buy this book? Like what would they be looking for? So came about my agent actually came to me and said, let's right. Sort of you know just like a big book of facto. AIDS. That has to do with the Bible and I said. There was no way I can write that book the amount of research. They could not pay me enough money honestly for the amount of research and time it would. I would be working on it. You know forever. And I said, it just doesn't make sense for me to write that book. I don't have the expertise, and so I just told him no, I can't do that, and then I had an epiphany I'm like Oh doug. Powell. He's a guy that I had oddly worked with. You know my first job out of college in a totally unrelated field and then I met him again when he was doing some of the theological reviews for my other books at age kids. And I said if I can work with. Doug Powell on this book, he can share all of his Genius Bible Knowledge. I can make it to where human beings can read it. Up particularly kids and then we can you know. Do this big book of Bible questions for Kids and then the design team stepped in and are I. Guess You saw the cover. Really Cool. It's just so engaging. So rich the illustrations are this mixed media of sort of I. Wouldn't call them line drawings I'm not but they're just black and white SORTA sketchy looking drawings. But also with with actual you know photos of archaeology and things like that mixed in. It's so interesting There's something new on every page. Yeah it looked really. Exciting just from. The perspective of kid wanting to open it up and You Know I. Think it'd be a great Christmas present to put in a stocking or even thinking Easter if you wanted. To do something like that you know if you're trying to tie it with holidays around us and stuff like that but yeah I just it just looked exciting and I just feel like there are so many questions that we can't answer and so. If there's a book to kind of help US navigate. It just seemed like a fun cover. So it caught my attention I wanted to talk about it. Glad it caught. UTAH. Well. Having inequalities about I mean we we posted a thing on. Social media saying what are your Big Bible questions and we had some tough ones why do kids get cancer and things? And I found that we had we had sort of not directly cancer of course, but we had sort of already answered things like that in this book. So it's it's I. IT answered a lot of my questions just. Yeah Him. So I think really anybody who is at child starting to read his or her Bible or even adults having a hard time answering some of those big questions I think it's perfect. Yeah. That sounds really great and. It just seems like a good book so I'll put all this in the show notes too. So you guys can see what I'm talking about and you can check it out Is that book already out Amy? Okay. Yes. It released in March. Okay perfect. Okay. So All. Right. So we talked about your life over here. Nobody can see my hand gestures that I'm Mike. You're in this book world, Writing Books and But you decided this year out of all years. You know twenty twenty two decided to take a big leap and you know pivot a little bit how `bout you share with everybody what else you're up to Well. In my defense, your honor I did not know what twenty twenty one is going to hold in or what I made this decision. But. No I so. In August started law school. I had always known I wanted to go back to school. I felt the Empty Nest Syndrome looming sixteen year old. And I just felt suddenly that this clarity you know this is the this is this is I should start working on this and then just little. Little things along the pathway like I took my son to do. There's a a large university in. Our town and I took him and his friend there to eat lunch one day they got out of school early but it was a holiday. So the only thing was building called the K. you see will walk in the first floor of the building and there's this big yellow flyer that says, take the l sat and I'm like, okay because this is something that already struck me and So anyway, I'm like okay I'll just pick up the flyer. What's IT GONNA hurt Well fast forward I am now knee deep in reading every day and every night but but yeah. So just little little crumbs along the path just just really confirmed for me that this is what I'm supposed to be doing. Yeah. So I wanted to bring this up because you and I talked about this before we started recording is that I think so many women especially as we get closer to forty they kind of just wonder you know, is this what they want to keep doing if they're doing a job already, do they wanNA pivot and change? DO THEY WANNA Maybe they stopped working to be home with the kids and they want to do something different than they were doing before and they might feel like they're too old and you know we're not too old and I just want to encourage. You know women to really think about what do you really want to do with your life and? Especially when you start getting those little signs that you're talking about amy and not to push those aside not to kind of you know this them right like Oh. That's just. Nothing or whatever that there's probably reasons why those things keep popping up and to pay attention to that and So I wanted to share that with us on to just kind of inspire other MOMS that you don't have to. Stop doing things in your life or doing scary things in your life. After, you hit forty and stuff like that. So what is your hope to? What what what is your hope with all of this? Did you law school I mean law schools intense it's a lot like you're saying a lot of reading. This is not like an easy like I'm just going to do this for fun. So. What what do we? What do you hope to use your law degree for when you come out of this? Well. That's the thing to I'm. You know. It's just like anything when I started my English. I. Thought I was going to be an English teacher and then I thought Oh dream job I'm going to be an editor. And every time I set my sights. Man makes his plans but the Lord away I'm going to totally butcher that. Laughs but. An. Up Don't worry. Yes. Well, and I'm confusing two different versus but. But the idea man makes. Plans God laughs. Basically. And he's left. He's I've just been a continual source of laughter for him. So. So, anyway my plan. All of that is a disclaimer that my plan right now is to work somehow in child advocacy or. In adoption law, I know they're. Prohibitive expenses related to adoption and I like to help relieve those somehow. And then I've also looked at ELDERLAW A. Yeah. and. Entertainment law I do know how to read a publishing contract so That is cool. So yeah that may be something else that but my husband keeps asking what is it going to look like for? You know when right 'cause he's the planner thank God I have a planner in this. Planner too. That's why I'm asking you. Know. Yeah. He he wants to know to. What are we making doing it for? Why are we on this ride? And so. So. Anyway. That is the plan that I'm saying that I have but I honestly don't know what but it really changed. Yeah it could change. Yeah. No I liked and I love those ideas I think those are really great to just have in your mind holding loosely and obviously you feel about conviction to do it like so. You know I feel like that's enough. Sometimes, you do have to go into things with full faith because you don't always see and that is a struggle for me because I am a planner, you want to see the whole forest and right don't, and so I'm always like wait but I like to shine the light on the whole I'd like to see all the way through the end before I decide this. So I give it to you that you're willing to do it without really knowing a definitive like end point and I think that's that's great and so how long is law school? So how much of Your Life Are you GonNa? It's well, it's typically if I were to go to a regular program that a daytime fulltime student program, it's three years but I'm taking a program that allows me to go at night so that I can continue doing what I love. Do Love what I do. It's not that I'm not intent, but I did feel like I was getting a little comfortable. And we don't grow and more comfortable rate so so it'll be four years. Because I'm taking sort of a slower yeah Graham. Feel like. Yeah, you're like, Whoa, what does the fast train feel like crazy. Yeah. I love it. Okay and twenty hours so as My current semester hours. Yes, twenty hours. Load. I. Oh, Gosh. That's funny. Okay Amy. So we're at the end of the show Do you have any advice right now for parents? You know just feeling like they're way over their head was schooling you know during a pandemic and they just kind of feel like they're drowning You know have any thoughts that you could leave with us that might give some encouragement to those moms out there. Well I think we're all there in in one way or another I don't have little at home so I. I can't imagine what that's like I have nieces and nephews who are all distance learning and my sister in law is like Oh there you know technology issues. Try It. Yes. So I feel like we're all there and I know. The Universal Code here is going to just be grace and just trying to give each other Grace Nen understanding that we're all learning this as we go, you know the teachers Oh my goodness who are Creating curriculums and then recreating him recreating planned, cleaning their classrooms like crazy people and yeah. Just, you know for the ones who are in school. So I just feel like we need boatloads of grace right now we need to understand that that everybody is is going through this together. Yeah that is great and I agree I just feel like. Everybody has their own thing that they're having to deal with, and so it may not look exactly like yours. But they're having to deal with something that's not their you know considered normal life and whatnot. So. That's good advice. All right. Well, Amy, I appreciate you coming back on the show as always I love just talking to you just talk for a long time and it's just great having you on. Thanks so much for having me.

Brad Powers on ATS.io Radio - College Football Week 2 & NFL Week 1

"Colognes again, thank you for joining me here on this September tenth addition of ats dot Io. Radio I'm your host Adam Burke I'm joined today by Professional Haiti, gap bradpowers. From Bradpowerssports.com, we're talking a lot of college football and a lot of NFL here on today's show before we get into that I just want to remind you that over at ats dot io tons of game previews for this weekend my daily Mlb picks and tips piece we golf previews we've got all. Kinds of stuff going on over there at the website for you to check out, and also to we've got sports worker views from the legal sports books here in the United States whatever state you're from if they've got legal betting, we've got reviews of those sports books over at ats dot io to go along with exclusive deposit bonuses.

With that, we bring on Brad powers professionally together from bradpowerssports.com right? It's great to talk with you again man how you doing. All. Right man good to hear your voice I know football's back to back and getting out of here with the NFL and finally some five college football team play. Very. Much looking forward to that and something that's interesting to our listeners here is that you and I had a nice little sunset dinner last week I was out off Vegas. We we had a good time getting together and kind of catching up on things and You know it's nice to fall back into a rhythm and our routines year given that there has been very little. It's been routine about twenty twenty. Yeah, that will it's nice and honestly I'm a guy with usually high expectations didn't have much patients on that place we went to. Play. Exceeded expectations there at the end I got say it was good having a friendly dinner with somebody that's few and far between is saying twenty twenty. Baton for those that haven't been the M, very, very beautiful place out there, and also to you know you still got a couple of here to sign up for the circus sports million or the circus survivor or the West Gate Super Contest I. If you if you do live outside of the standard Atta, you need a proxy for that matter and Tony over at football contests dot com we'll be our proxy services here four our ats dot io entries, and I will be talking about my thoughts for the card here coming up on Friday but. Out There in Las Vegas, I gotta say people that are kind of hesitant to go out there I would stay far far away on the weekend. The weekdays weren't too bad. Yeah I mean wig. There was just a couple of reports even last night they had some issues. Let's just say on the Strip of and believe I mean obviously ships for most by really safe. When you consider you know all people flying from all over the world and whatnot. Last couple. Months let's say the clientele that's been going to the strips a little different dialects especially, clientele that'd be going to places like the wing COSMO whatnot I think Cosmo WanNa, major issue, the other night. Yeah for sure it's Definitely interesting. It's always interesting going on. Fremont. Street. was basically empty when I was down there probably about twenty percent of what I would expect to see it on a weekday. Still. overlay in the circa million and some quarterly overlays in the West Gate super contests. So check those out definitely a good opportunity in a good time to get involved with those but. We've talked about already nothing is normal. Nothing is what we expect it to be here as we head in two week, one of the NFL season continue with whatever semblance of college football season we're going to get here. But for you personally you start your work on the upcoming season basically before the previous season even end. So you already had a lot of work done before everything shut down what was different for you about the preparation for this season did you change anything or did you try to keep it business as usual? Oh great question I mean there's a lot of changes with me personally you know. So I left and Kinda left where I was working at where I was doing a lot of radio and podcasts and whatnot. So that opened me up the more time. Obviously, March would be typically when I'm doing Ncaa Tournament Anti Capping College hoops and being involved even sort of say with the NBA playoffs in the months of April and May so i. Would love more time for me. So I that was the major change for me but as far as crap. Oh, my goodness One thing that I rely on a lot is looking at spring games. A lot of people say I can't get anything from spring. Game I can I mean I can tell the backup quarterback and drawing out pattern twenty, five, thirty yards down the field type of thing, and not being see those spring games certainly. Hurt my handicapping capping a little bit. So what I had to do at him, believe it or not. With back and probably watch two hundred gains from last year games. I'd when you a dream and start to finish like a Massachusetts army game army wants sixty three to seven. I started going back through tape last year, and then you know the difference transfer portals more prominent than ever coded nineteen hop doubts more problems than ever. So that I took a position that if there is football being played, I need to be prepared I need to actually know how good this position group as I need to know how good this backup quarterback is because the chances of them having to play this year compared to last past few years is way greater than anything we've seen in the past. And I think that's an excellent point to make here and we'll talk about a few games here coming up in week two that you're expected to be played it pretty high tempo probably. Relatively, breakneck pace in some of these games and depth will matter a ton maybe even more than depth usually matters over the course of season. So having all that prep work done should be beneficial for you. I know you do very, very detailed power ratings do a lot of stuff in terms of looking at returning production returning starters. And it was difficult for me to get into the college football prep mode. 'cause I did a bunch for the major league baseball season and we all know how that kind of turned out. With the shutdown and now playing the sixty game season and all that. So mentally, I couldn't get myself into that spot to do all of this college football prep work. But for you, it was a process you had already started and we're probably pretty close to being finished with. So did anything change about that the construction power ratings looking at returning production knowing that you're there were probably going to be these covert opt outs or? Season in general anything, change about that power ratings process for you. One thing that did change is I. You know obviously returning stars returning production is prominent. It's not the end all be all, but but it certainly prominent a value, those teams, the teams that are specifically had returning head coach returning offense coordinator, returning quarterback, and maybe not missing left tacklers center. I valued that more than ever before as far as coming up with an opening preseason power rating So just putting a little bit. More emphasis on continuity not not abner place both your coordinators was something I valley. Obviously, if you do after place both your corners and your drastically changing schemes from three, four, two, four, three on defense, maybe you're moving to more spread principles on offense more UPTEMPO those types of teams when not having any spring practices I'm not looking forward to bet these teams here in the first couple of weeks of the season. So is that something you incorporate into the power innings with regards to like your positional breakdowns or is that something that just you keep in mind from a handicapping standpoint and just sort of factor that angle and I guess what I'm saying do you quantify it in some way or do you just? File that away in the back of your mind, and you know maybe you've got a game or the power ratings. overlay is a couple of points but it is a team making a lot of drastic changes schematically or something like that. How did you account for that wasn't a mathematical thing or just more of a a handicapping angle. So a little bit of both. So into my power powering, obviously I'm the talent and a returning production and the the overall I, a returning experience on one night as far as individual position. So I go through quarterbacks running backs off line you name it all the way through the whole team and. Then, I have one very important column I call it the intangible com where I'm looking at you know not only close wins losses from last year I several factors you know what your coaches situation is actually have a specific column for coaches. So I do opt out for every single position including the coaches, including this intangibles and get it waited in the powering nat regard. Now, specifically when we got to gain time here and I didn't see too much powering differences last week with those six seven games as a what we saw. But this week I'm seeing significant differences between what my pure power rating is on the game and then actually. Know How then on top of Van, accounting for our what's the continuity? What's the matchup like? I've Susan Example Army you Monroe. So I upgraded armory big time after that forty to nothing win Middle Tennessee last week and after that. I thought. The. Line should be in sixteen seventeen range. What's been steamed at twenty one. But I'm not you know sitting here willing to bet you all monroe because of the match issues they didn't have limited practice time because their defensive corner resigned last week. So I guess I'm less apt to betting huge significant power Ting's differences because of match of whatnot this year does that make any sense? Yeah. Definitely makes a Lotta sense and gave me and this is all part of the handicapping process in terms of understanding. If you do Paul Ratings where your numbers put a game, and if you still like it because your numbers may say one thing, but it could be a bad match up there could be as you mentioned some of those intangible things they look a team like you L. Monroe for I guess maybe Middle Tennessee state is a prime example. A lot of people liked Middle Tennessee state last week against army. A lot of people didn't like army with some new players in that quarterback rotation. Middle Tennessee state with. All Prep period to look at the triple option and they got dominated because it's something they don't see and it was something that they just didn't really account for, and that's something to you talk about the intangible process here of. If you're Middle Tennessee state or let's say this week Louisiana Monroe. Are. You more worried about yourself or are you more worried about defending the option because to me? If I'm a head coach, we're not going anywhere. We don't know what Ball Games are going to look like we're not a national championship contender, I WanNa make sure that my team is right as opposed to worrying about defending this gimmicky offense that I'm GonNa see once and be completely done with it. So maybe that's sort of fueling this line move with army or it's people fall victim to what they've most recently seen but that will be an issue here early on in the season of you know is a. Team worrying about itself or is it worrying about defending that opposing scheme? Is that opposing scheme something that they will see again down the line talking about some of these games with tempo that will get into a little bit more how do you prep for Temple? What do you do to get your team ready in week water week two to eighty five snaps there's not really much. You can do if you're a slower tempo team. So maybe you just worry about going through your own progressions, your own assignments, and again with this year being. So dramatically different than any other, all of these factors are in play. They are and it's tough putting a you know a point system to that because you know typically maybe it's easy That's where the point that's where the couple points I mean. In these particular instances, they might be worth a couple touchdowns out. We saw navy not you know hitting live for nine months I mean I didn't matter who navy had as far as return production. I mean they just weren't ready to play football game on. Monday night. So the. Difficult thing is how much you know putting a point value to this I mean with regards to the army on Monroe game I mean it could be an instance where you just know the first couple of series of the game I. Mean you'll monroe soil equipped and it doesn't matter if arms-length Twenty one are game they're laying twenty eight it's going to be a fifty nothing type of situation. So I mean as a gambler what we're taught every point Matt or These are instances where might work the touchdown two touchdowns, touchdowns that that's the struggle, but it also allows for some opportunity. If you've got a good instinct on this, you might ask your easiest lens of your entire career. Yeah for sure and that's something we'll talk about the lack of hitting something I want to touch on. We get to the NFL here a little bit later on in the show. But as I mentioned, we're going to be doing these highlight videos here from ats dot IO radio talking about some highlight topics, some highlight game stuff like that. We certainly encourage you if you're only watching the video to listen to. The full podcast. There's a ton of great information. We're only cutting out some snippets here so that we can produce some video content, any video component from the podcast here like so many other podcasts in the space are doing but one of the things I wanted to highlight here with you brad not I'm chatting with Brad powers professionally into capper over at bradpowerssports.com home field advantage it's an inexact science to begin with. Have our own approach, our own plan for doing it. But this year you've got some teams that have no attendance whatsoever some teams that have maybe twenty five percent capacity where that could mean twenty thousand or it could mean six thousand. So what did you do in terms of trying to account for home field advantage here for this college football season? So. As usual case by case basis for me, I'm not handicapping baseball and a bunch of other sports on instead of just saying I'm not having fans deduct homefield advantage of point point and a half I went through and looked at each team. You're exactly right I twenty five thousand people are GonNa be in Baton Rouge because it's twenty five percent if. It somewhere much smaller stadium might be a couple of thousand. So big difference there in just typically eastern Michigan no fans are GONNA BE I know they're not playing. So this might not be a great example but like a team like eastern Michigan or sunbelt school that's only going to have by thousand fans in the stance I mean the fans weren't even. Really accounting for the home field advantage to begin with. So I did do a major downgrade on a lot of those but if you're talking teams like Lsu I, the big ten ever decides to play a Penn State at night and white I'll those mean taking the fans out of those types of situations is worth two three points in my opinion so. All blanket statement I downgraded hope field advantage probably about forty percents taking fans out of it. Yeah that was sort of in the realm of what I did. I mean generally speaking I go with the standard three, and then as I talked about on Monday on our show with Kyle Hunter encourage everyone to go back and check out I talked about how you know I've done a results based home field advantage calculation of the last three years straight up and against the spread putting teams in certain buckets going from three to three and a half three and a half to four even have some teams down as low as two. Just don't really have home field advantage to begin with, and that kind of brings up sort of an interesting point here, and you know we won't really know this until we see it. But the idea of as you mentioned teams that already don't have much of a crowd anyway everybody's desperate to be out doing something now because so many people have been locked up or quarantine or just kind of shied away from crowds or whatever else those teams that maybe get six thousand fans at twenty five percent capacity may actually hit six thousand. People just want to do something and they'll be excited to be doing something. So the ironic thing is in some of the really small conferences. May Not Change at all and you could make a case could be better now for the major conferences getting twenty thousand instead of eighty thousand. Yeah. That's a pretty big difference in deserves a downgrade. Absolutely, and I think we saw a great example from this past weekend where Army I'm an army. Typically, it gets a solid crowd, but they just had the cadets in attendance. They spread them out. They basically took up half this half the side of a one stadium, one side of the stadium, and there was four thousand. And I don't know if they were pumping in extra crowd and that's another factory got almost considered. You almost got to see it first and then make adjustments after one or two weeks but those four thousand cadets and attendance. It was loud. It was noticeable watching it on TV. It's not like milk. Tennessee was using a bunch of timeouts. For but it certainly showed up at least watching on TV. So you're exactly right. I, mean some of the smaller stadiums might not much of a difference whatsoever when it comes crowd noise. Now not to go off on a tangent with speaking. Middle. Tennessee not using timeouts. You any great video on your twitter page at Brad powers and the number seven with your commentary on Middle Tennessee state, and not just your the calculation of home field advantage. But what it means for me game play standpoint I talk with Brian Blessing. We did a couple of videos on Tuesday and he thinks that at least as far as the NFL goes a road teams third down conversion rates could be a lot better here in this neutered. Homefield advantage environment where the fans aren't allowed, you can communicate you can talk to each other. You can make sure that you're on the same page. So Yeah, you've got your calculation in terms of creating your numbers but what do you think about game play and the impact of Homefield advantage or lack thereof here for this college football season? Well, at first and foremost that's a really sharp take it to go in as far as third down conversions because. I'm not sure yet all of this theory 'cause none of us have handicap cope in nineteen but you know of road teams do better because I mean if you if you don't, you're not having to do silent talents and whatnot as far as the the snap goes and you're not dealing with those third down sorta say I would eat a looking at it. You're dealing with L. A.. Law. Firm ten more manageable. Now that gives there's no crowd noise I could be. scoring-wise offensively. Offense can be affected explicitly road offenses probably not as much so. Tough thing is is not a lot of in game opportunities specifically on the college side that see if you can take advantage of it but just general concepts for me maybe more scoring offense affected by crowds in my opinion and maybe I I would say road teams just generally performing a above expectation well, and I think it favors offense for another reason to not. Even just third down when the fans Kinda get going in there playing graphics on the scoreboard and all that and again I mean twenty thousand people can be pretty damn loud. So we'll see what happens in these major conferences but also to you're not going to see as many false starts probably you're not going to be behind schedule as much. You're not going to. Go from second for two second nine and all the sudden put yourself behind schedule behind the chains a little bit so to speak. So maybe that's something that kind of just is a byproduct that winds up helping offense a little bit again as you said, this is all speculatory at this point in time we have to see how things play out but these are. Things that you want to have in the back of your mind here as you're watching these games as you're falling along and see if this is actually what's happening or something different than you expected. Because again, we're all kind of going through this feeling out process here, and there's always a feeling out process early in the season but clearly this year different from others. Absolutely. It is. That's why I don't some instances I've been more cautious. Less aggressive than what happened in other instances? I've not been afraid to defy away if I think I really am advantage. Like. We said we're going to be doing these highlight video clips here from ats dot io radio and posting them. Our ATS Youtube page to make sure you check those out with every show. But of course, as we said, you WANNA listen to the full show. So you don't Miss Anything and you can subscribe on Speaker. Stitcher spotify itunes, iheartradio Google podcasts wherever it is you get your podcast content. So with that, let's take a look here at some of these games here in week two and you know, Brad. I. Think we've seen some interesting line moves here so far we've certainly seen a variety of moves across the market side soon to be kind of hammered not into submission per se but some of the value extracted with these games being up here for so long real quickly since it is Thursday, I'm going to try and turn this around as fast as I can any thoughts on game three, ninety, three, ninety, four tonight between UAB and Miami Florida. I'm part of the money on the over but did the over early in the week at like fifty and a half boy now at fifty four and a half fifty, five that a lot of value sucked out of that and the thought process is you know certainly in a week one total you're dealing with a lot of you know what? We're the statistics from prior years far as average points per game whatnot there's so much from. The previous season I at the mispricing was, hey, Miami struggled quarterback the last three or four years or even longer than that. Now, they have a dynamic quarterback in New York King and they're going to move more off tempo I I agree with the mood of the over but boy currently on the side and total don't see too much value if Miami continues to take somebody on the side might be a bite off a ham sandwich on be. Well. These are always interesting games too because I mean look you a great conference USA team you know this as well as I. Do I know you were fairly high UAB coming into the year lot of returning production a lot of continuity on that team. Bill Clarkson Excellent head coach at the same time. This is a step up against Miami Miami. Maybe he doesn't recruit at the levels that they once did, but it's still Florida recruiting still for talent and you didn't even have a program a few years ago. So yet to kind of factor that in and it's tough to do that early on in the year does Miami look like this more talented more dynamic, more explosive team or does UAB who is a great team in its own conference with carryover from the previous year? You know is that good enough for them to hang around in this game and we get a lot of games like that early on in the process we do, and in this particular instance I think a lot more known than answers specifically. MIAMI. Two touchdowns with the Miami team than the last two years lost eleven eleven games outright is a favourite nobody's even in that realm realm Miami last year's as far as losing games outright is a favourite let alone covering spread and you mentioned you a step up as good as bill clarks been the last three years since they kind of a revamp the program got going again they haven't looked good UAB winning had to step up I, mean, they're all three against the number P. Five and They lost those games by about twenty four points per game. Oh we'll see what happens here in tonight's game again, I think with the totals move and the side not really showing a ton of value I do have this number a little bit lower for what it's worth I think I've got you A. B. Oh, I want to say twelve eleven and a half something like that. So maybe I am a little bit lower than the market here on this game eleven. And a half is my number. But still with that being said that talent gap may show up here and if the talent gap does show up, it makes it very tough for UAB to have enough because they're not very good offensive team I mean they're a good running team but if they've got to go out there and try to score twenty, four, twenty, eight points with Miami to keep pace that probably won't. Happen. So probably a good live betting opportunity, not a whole lot of value left on the pre flop handicapped for that one. What about the first game on the board for Saturday's Syracuse. North Carolina three, ninety, five, ninety, six you and I talked about this last year we're doing this for banged the book radio about North Carolina about how we are both going to be high on them coming into this season with. The job that Sam Hall did as a true freshman with two very good coordinators and Phil Longo in J Bateman with Mack Brown who kind of more of a figurehead than anything else. But maybe he's turned the clock back a little bit here with this team all of a sudden this numbers up to twenty three and it looks like there's not going to be much value on North Carolina early in the year. No so get this and I know it's an illiquid inefficient market because so few books have season win totals up, but my favorite over bet as far as the season went North Carolina or seven and a half my favorite under bet, it's Syracuse under five. So you would think a week one. There should be held a lot of value on North Carolina near my favorite over team circuits favorite under team and my borrowings haven't right. Around twenty one and the thought process at least the tea leaves that I'm reading is people are at least again, it's all speculation, but they're not like in the preparation as far as syracuse written, reading the players comments as far as the player on unrest as far as black lives matter and whatnot couple of running backs or top two running backs just out that out. So the there's at least this thought that circles be. In quotations, a navy type of team where they just are ready to start the season I. Don't think you're gonNA question that as far as North, Carolina side I think team has high expectations a lot turning production i. look at what was just done in a couple of recruiting classes. He's upgraded the talent level and I think right now. You know trump rewards aside who's better than SAM pollock quarterback in the country outside of trouble warrants I mean your boy justin fields can't make him feel the team there I'll I'll. But other than that? Sam. How's your best quarterback in the country I I'm not gonNA play it typically if it continued to go up by one take circles but. I'm. GonNa, sit this out. Yeah. I'm twenty one here too and as it's gone up I mean if you haven't hit the market yet on this game, maybe North Carolina first quarter or first half if you are worried about Syracuse and their preparation the thing for the orange to new offensive coordinator and Stirling Gilbert they're expected to move a little bit quicker here which is probably what Dino. Neighbors. Wants to do but also it means you go three and out pretty quick, which means that if Carolina could wind up with a lot of possessions early on in this game and something else to, and as we look up and down the card here, we'll pick and choose to more games as we go. But some big favourite prices and you wonder here, I, saw this kind of being talked with team like Clemson who's at thirty two and a half thirty three and a half point favorite. How long does trevor? Lawrence play how long till the empty the bench how long until they bring in the freshman? It's GonNa be a similar thing for. A lot of these big favorites if they get up big, how long does it take him to ease off the gas because we talked about already in terms of your power ratings, construction depth will matter a ton this year, you're going to have to use those guys at some point in time whether it's covid related injury related or just because you know who knows if these teams are in midseason former anything close to it from conditioning standpoint, I'm wary of laying big favorites early on in the year here if you think a game is going to be controlled by that big favourite side, maybe the first half derivative is where you WANNA look. Excellent Point and and certainly if you were going to attack, that's how I would as far as early derivative market and you hit the nail on the head. If I'm head coach and a mock three, four touchdowns I I gotta get players in 'cause you you hit the nail on the head I mean the chances of a lot of these second third stringers playing this year at least significant moment minutes. Increased double triple compared to the chances of previous years. I mean I'm getting these guys some experience early and often. I WanNa talk to you about game three, Ninety, seven, Ninety, eight. HERE'S CHARLOTTE NAPA latching state Appalachian seats seventeen point favorite. But it's been pretty one sided money on Charlotte driving this number down and it looks like sharper money in nature the public knows APP state they'll be more comfortable and more familiar with APP state. This line gone down does suggest some sharp money on Charlotte here in the early going however, I'll throw this out there. We just had a highlight conversation about home field advantage. Boone North Carolina is at elevation. It's about thirty three, hundred feet above sea level without the mountain west without. The PAC twelve, we've got two teams that have an altitude advantage. One is APP state. The other is you tap who has virtually no advantage every single week but El Paso is it thirty, seven, hundred feet above sea level. So I wonder about that here and how much that factors into your home field advantage number for APP state and also your handicap of this game specifically. Well I didn't think of Homefield too much and you know I would say app state in comparison to other group of fives probably about a half point higher he'd already number as far as the elevation not particularly concerned near maybe I should be because I'm part of the money on Charlotte early in the week might number sixteen seventeen. So I I took anything about seventeen I thought was positive. Let's hope it's positive for me but. Looking at it, you know didn't come into my thought process Charlotte's plate in this exact venue in stadium last year and more specifically my handicap was a lot staff turnover APP state Charlotte meanwhile, a little bit more continuity will really in a second year has been a guy that that you know if you look at the job, he did it Austin P. I. Mean that program took a couple of notches up first year and took a couple more notches up his second year if that's the case and I think Charlotte's are really good. I mean, they could almost one last year's game that they outstanding out. I down at state couple of Fluky non-offensive scores for the mountaineers otherwise that's basically a game like head overtime. So that's where I thought the perceived that the value to be. There and no look could be a precursor cannot be but. One especially at Google five level or when you have one year best players opt out Corey Sutton did for APP state I know that's a good sign. We saw some last Thursday bought all three or four their stars. Now, I get our five guys opting out like a penny soule from Oregon or Mike Parsons from Penn state because they're going to be drafted I route I don't get it from a group of five aspect I unless it's family related and I know I gotTA BE PC here but it to me maybe raised eyebrows is the team ready your team leaders ops out no what's the thought process going through the team? No that's that's a good point. That's a good question especially because you know the thing of it too is if you're in a power five school, it's sort of next man up I. Mean even if you're a first round caliber, pick the guy behind, you is probably pretty good at the group of five level. The Guy Behind you is a significant step down in most cases. So that's why we don't see a similar level of consistency from the group of five programs, APP state kind of one of the exceptions but now you also wonder you'll look. Scott Satterfield as an awesome head coach. We'll talk about him in a minute here. Only talk about lable. Drink wits has a very bright future and obviously now going to Missouri, they seem to think so as well I. Don't know so much about Sean. Clark. Is a guy with that same kind of ceiling as a head coach I believe is what the offensive line coach last year want to be the interim head coach for the ball game. But you wonder about APP state and their ceiling, and you wonder if maybe something like Sutton opting out and it could have been a family thing as you mentioned but you sort of wonder if maybe he of sees at the ceiling for this team does end up being a little bit lower here this. Year I guess we'll just have to sort of wait and see how that winds up playing out when another highlight game here, a highlight video forced talk about from ats dot. Io Radio. Thing. You look at game three, ninety, nine, four, hundred, Georgia tech and four state four to state taking some money. Now, this went up from eleven to twelve and a half thirteen out there in the market total has come down a couple of points, fifty four and a half to fifty two and a half. These are such intriguing handicaps for me early in the season because you could say that both of these teams were disappointing last year but Georgia state getting away from the option getting to more of a traditional offensive style we expected growing pains four to state. This is multiple years of the seminoles being a disappointment in Tallahassee does Mike norval right the ship right away to the point where four to state covers double digits here. I don't think. So I bit off a little bit already on Georgia tech and waiting to bite off more ideal. This is one where the market disagrees with Munis weekend. We'll see how that goes but Georgia tech talk about returning production returning a continuity Georgia tech has at this year I mean, they're one of the highest return productive odd teams in the entire country nineteen returning starters for the jackets I get it. They're still transition away from the option offense. Jeff, Collins is put together. Really good recruiting class will see some of those freshmen play I think even in in Saturday's game and and you know this is one thing and maybe maybe I'm off on this but you know. From following football for last fifteen twenty years and professionally last ten years or so baton on it I can tell when it's coachspeak. But when it came to. Jeff. Collins and I get he's kind of Aurora. Guy. I heard him talking about his team in a radio interview maybe a couple of weeks ago and he seemed nutty basically said his team's night day compared to last year and to me I know. I've upgraded Georgia tech significantly maybe I didn't upgrade them enough in this instance and I could tell you one thing. I. Don't WanNa do week one in a conference game with a team of four state teen that's dealing with a lot of there was some player on. This summer, we'll see if that, that's all carol but for to st the reality program last year's years Adam Eighteen and twenty straight up I. Mean This is below five hundred team and I are going to be laying double digits in a conference game gets I. Think the Georgia Tech Team that's going to be very excited to get out there and play. I, mean, Georgia tech a bit off a little and will save thirteen I abide off some more and. Maybe it goes fourteen I'll buy off even more. Well and the question is and you and I talked about Paul Ratings at the top of the show and I certainly encourage everyone to listen to the full broadcasts of ats dot Io, radio, podcast form. But the thing that's always really difficult for me are these underachieving teams that Texas's the Florida state to the world basically throw a blanket over any team in the pack twelve. When you're putting together your power ratings, you have to respect the talent level. You have to respect a pipeline that's in place and for. Four to state. They still get very good talent maximized it over the last few years, but you always have to try and find this perfect balance of yeah. This got a lot of talent but also they haven't played while the last several years. Now, they do have that new coaching staff and maybe that's the difference. Maybe that's the catalyst to get this team back to level that it should be but I don't like power rating teams like for state programs like that because again, you've gotta respect that talent level. But it doesn't deserve the respect based on the results based on what you just said again, picking the litter in the sunshine state where the top school or what are the top states for high school football, and they are a sub five, hundred team the last three years. So you ask yourself. Okay there's talent here. But what changes? What does wind up being the difference maker? I don't know I. Don't know if is that guy but as you said, Georgia Tech, are they the most talented team in the ACC? No but they're going to show up and play week in and week out collins does seem to be a good head coach was a very good defensive coordinator for a long period of time I. Think you do have to give the respect and the nod to Georgia tech this weekend. I do and. I mean I had a nine and a half ten. So I mean I think there's overland that regard and you know nor norville better than Willie tagger. Yes. I think that I think we can almost make that `save assumption but is Mike novell urban Meyer coming in there and they're going to win immediately and the talents got off the light bulbs going to go off immediately he's GonNa show talent disparity between these teams. I`ma buying. So that's why I like Georgia. Tech is one of the few bigger than nate so far as a sign in wander. Consensus play here on Georgia. Tech. With this highlight game from. Dot. Io Radio make sure you check out the podcast and make sure you check out all of our videos here on our ats youtube page. Arthur would that Brian we move onto another game here and you know this is one that. it's kind of a mess. The Kansas Program apparently has a lot of covid cases. We don't exactly know who as of yet at least I haven't seen that news come across the wire they take on a coastal Carolina team that upset them in Lawrence last year but this is a game where the line shot up from three and a half to his highest seven and a half, and this was a move early on in the week I. Think this was probably a group released from somebody out there that did move this game up but man laying a touchdown with the Jayhawks is is not a comfortable scenario. Yeah. I agree with the opener, a three and a half four seemed to me I mean pure power rating I had a Kansas three i. get the revenge might be a factor cancer's going to overlook Coast Carolina buying last year. So I mean, the three and a half four seem very reasonable to me. I just disagree with the three points a move since then and for multitude of reasons. Number One, you look at Kansas Damn forgot quarterback position for them. They might even played two quarterbacks. The Saturday night number two, four, it is Kansas got zero spring practices and I have you're expected them to take that next step under last miles I. mean they don't have a lot of returning production where like ten or eleven returning stars for the Jayhawks? So that's a negative. And a positive for coastal Carolina more returning experience in production specifically offense for the chance Clare's and coastal. Carolina. Got All fifteen spring practices in. They're the only team left playing that guy full of springtime in and there was no worries at that point about cody nineteen is what did Your Business and had your spring? So I think that's a major significant advantage, Coast Carolina and I bet. It plus seven. I took off a couple shots at seven and a half of course. But you know the widely available seven that was there yesterday I released it's probably my favorite pick of the week as far as the side goes. Now that is an angle you've been tracking right the teams that have had more spring practices and so far get small sample size, but it has done well. Very small. It's four no ats and I gotta put a caveat in there before the fact checking me I did Cherry pick one game UAB had more spring practices than Central Arkansas I threw it out because Central Arkansas actually played a game of the week before. So we're talking experience and I know it's not apples to apples but I did cherry pick a little bit through that one out. But if you just throw that one out four zero ats as far as the teams that have more spring practices. One More Game I. Want to talk about from a highlight standpoint here. So another ATS youtube video for us to check out Western Kentucky and Louisville and I think a lot of people are very excited about Louisiana and state again that you talked about on your twitter page at Brad powers and the number seven, this is the game to me that I think is really really interesting because Western Kentucky has been a pretty consistent for the most part team there in conference USA at least once they figure things out last year with first year head coach. Tyson Hilton and Louisville last year dramatically exceeded expectations in year one with Scott Satterfield who I just think is a damn good coach and I don't know if I would say he's top five he certainly top ten for me on nationally as far as head coaches go. This is an interesting one. You've got the spread here eleven and a half total going up a little bit from fifty six to fifty eight. Again, a lot of people excited about Louisiana Iowa state but I this is the game and I'm kind of watching the closest here in week two. Yeah. I can see certainly see that. Voting strength similar both second year coach is both last year. I thought certainly overachieved from an expectation standpoint by far away both in Louisville Kentucky Union looking returning production. He got gotTa Love to Steal Position Talent there for Louisville. This is a team returns Cunningham quarterback very dynamic. Get that guy in your head Cunningham the quarterback for Louisville, a highly productive passer, also a dual threat and. You're looking at well wide receiver for them walking running back I mean the probably the best group was still position players that nationally people aware of you need to know those guys for Louisville less returning production as far as the skill position goes for Western. Kentucky lost their quarterback lost top wide receiver, Lucky Jackson they do bring in and this is intriguing Lisa as far as I'm concerned. Maryland transfer P quarterback for them a guy law more of a rutter than passer than if you look at Louisville's defense last year, they struggled defending mobile quarterback specifically be looking at Kentucky game at the end of the regular season will be was defense. Didn't have a clue out a defendant. So you know I would Lean Louisville here just because my power is called for and I I. Think it's more in the twelve range for me I just go back to last year's match up on a neutral. Field Louisville was clearly the better team won seventeen and the box score reflected but I kinda like the over I, like the Skill Position Town from Louisville and I think Lewis Defense might struggle in the Fan Watch Kentucky's offense a little bit of vulgar for me on this one. Yeah and again you've got Western Kentucky with some of that turnover. We've talked about that's kind of been a running theme here throughout the show. So far of returning production continuity and the increased importance of that here with the fact that we didn't really get spring practices, you know fall camps been a little bit limited to a degree. As you mentioned earlier on in the show, Navy wasn't even hitting each other. We saw that kind of. Come to the forefront getting blown out. By Byu, it's just been such a different lead up to the season here where maybe Louisville's continuity is sort of that determining factor along with the that we look there in ACC team, they recruit at a much higher level like that. But again, I want to see how Western Kentucky looks here in this game I maybe Louisville would be the lean for me I agree with your thoughts on the over. And that would be a consensus play here from US look at that over I'll, which is now again in that fifty eight range. But these are always such interesting games than and one other angle that consider here and I wrote about this over at ats dot io in my situation betting tips piece these little brother versus big brother Games always intrigue me. You know you're going to get little brother's best shut this one maybe not as you. Know obviously has some of the Directional Michigan schools. He gets Michigan or something like that. But still you know this is a game about bragging rights for Western Kentucky because those homegrown players probably were recruited by Louisville. So those little brother Big Brother Games always intrigued me to they certainly do and one more factor just if you WANNA keep track of Spring Practices Louisville seven nothing in that regard another reason for me leaning with the cardinals here. Like I said, we've got these highlight game clips, these highlight topic lips on our ats youtube page and make sure that you check out the full broadcast here of ATS DOT I O. Radio before we transition over the NFL side of things here Brad any other college games you WanNa hit on. Of interest or that maybe you know you've got kind of a stronger opinion not. Just for the people listening I mean if you're looking for a couple of you, WANNA make couple of Bats Coast Carolina Georgia Tech would be my two recommendations for this week. That's what I do. My newsletter customers were easing into the season a little bit. So maybe a little bit smaller, but those two that I'm looking at obviously I got the most money on. What do you think about Notre Dame and what do you think about duke now with Chase Bryce the clemson transfer quarterback, we know David cliff very good at developing quarterbacks. What do you think about that game and that seems like kind of a line that may get some interest here once we get to Saturday. Certainly with Notre Dame and I think, Notre, dame might take some money. So the clients above twenty one, I might bite off a little bit on. Duke. But my powering are white in line with that when I got Notre Dame by twenty and a half. That's right were about where the line is on the game. So no ban on the side you know reading through some of the people that I respect in the marketplace. I'm Kinda get talked into the honor and probably should have fired a little bit earlier on it but I, think money's GonNa come in on the under makes a lot of sense noting loses their top three receivers from last year return all fight for star offense a why I think they want to take a good look at some of their young running back. So I notre to be more Russia oriented. Defensively. Than have any issues defending Buke last year knows at thirty eight, seven whitewashing bed. Do that came at the say but I think beyond or at least from everything that I'm reading from that I respect that would be my bet right now on the Notre Dame Duke Game. Or as we transition over to the NFL side of things here for a few minutes to finish up this Thursday edition of ATS radio. Homefield advantage in the NFL we talked about it at length in college football. We even did one of the highlight video of it. What about home field advantage in the NFL where it's not as significant as it is in college to begin with so what did you wind up doing with it here for this year? Didn't go team by team maybe I'll make those adjustments again if I see, you know how many fans are because cowboys you're talking about way more fans than some of the north, these schools. So I I haven't played around too much on a team by team basis. So I did I stutter and half just took the fans out of it I'm right around in that one and a quarter points for on field one points just blindly put that out for free team when I was assessing season windows and whatnot. One point two five, one point, five points for me. Right now and I don't feel advantage and obviously I'll make Capela adjustments, and as I see one week to what with these things playing actual home gives seeing who asked fans in the stands and if even matter. Now, it's much more labor intensive process studying for the college football season. Especially for you you do so much work in terms of power ratings and you know all the metrics that you look at and stuff like that. What about the NFL I mean let's just sort of your your general generic approach and strategy to betting on professional football. I would say I. Don't know left tackle for for the raiders per se I don't know players specific I just don't think outside the quarterback position players really matter in the NFL there's not going to move a point spread where maybe they're not moving a point spread in college football, they should be moving point spread I. Think we even saw the Austin Central Arkansas game where just a long snapper for Austin be probably should have moved to. Point spread? Considering Austin beaten have backup. They had to change their game plan during the course of the game I. I'm not as players specific one I am more markets specific when it comes the NFL I think what I do better than even anything doing college is reading the NFL market and identifying specifically where the public's going to go because the public has a say in the NFL more than any other sport here in America. As, far as having an impact on the lie and having, let's just say a bias on media narrative I play against that all the time have had great success over last five years actually a better track record than than college in the NFL for me. So to me, it's all driven by market upright dating the market moves that we've seen over the course of the summer. I just teams getting way too expensive in my opinion from A. Point spread aspect I did go in and dive and watch game film from last year and Whatnot Adam I typically not had any issues with the NFL never had a losing season to me I'm I know cove in nineteen brings up a lot of different factors but to me all that at least that right now speculative and that's all noise just doing what I've been doing the last five years because I've had overwhelming amount of success in it. Well. You know making this transition here from Bang Book Radio to ATS DOT IO radio. We're looking at a different market. Now we're looking at the US market and the legal market here across the country and I want to get your thoughts on that and how you feel like that may impact the NFL. This year because you just said that the public has a lot more influence in the NFL. It is the most bet market globally probably second to soccer just because that's so popular overseas but. In terms of north. America. In terms of the United States NFL foreign away the most popular betting market, and we see that influence as you mentioned with the narratives but simply with the volume that's put on the NFL and the teams that People WanNa play on. Well now you've got the US market where you've got more geographic biased you've got more people with access to betting on the NFL I do you think that changes the dynamic here in this first season where we've got, you'll upwards of. Twenty or twenty two states now that have illegal betting. Great Question. And again I think it's speculative at this point and our people are going to be willing to bet if there was a typical. season. We didn't have cove and people were just out and about doing their thing that I would say I would be looking into it more I'm not sure if people are going to be taking that trip to Atlantic City or Vegas if they're Kinda on defense about it or you don't go into the local book or mobile sign ups, I mean let's face it I. Mean People's Economic. Situation's probably aren't as good as what they were March first. So we'll see what the expanded expanded income is as far as being able to bet on that. Again, wait and see for me right now I it was a typical season though I'd be certainly looking at it diet and seeing if the public's going to have that factor, I'm not seeing it too much as far as the week one lines and the public anyways is so late to the game even this year I don't anything because the NHL and NBA and Major. League. BASEBALL HEATED UP IN AUGUST I don't. I. Think Football's been furthest from their minds. We'll see maybe on game day though you know the public having a bigger say than ever before that's. What I'm looking for I'm waiting till Sunday to see if there is no money coming in that we haven't seen all summer long words trickled in in the past from the public and specifically August when we've talked about a lot of the great sign up offers over at ats right now, and that's something that's kind of interesting too. Is that at the outset of the season here, you're going to get a lot of bonus money being played. You're going to get a lot of these risk free bets and stuff like that which you know kind of impacts how these. Facing books balanced the action on a game you know and and when we get deeper into the season here, you know probably weeks four or five and so on. That's where you've got maybe some true accounts in terms of the action actually being bet. So maybe that gives you a more concrete indicator of where these states are actually coming in where the public is actually coming in. So that's going to be kind of interesting too. Is that a lot of people in one and two? We'll have the water wings. On they'll have the small deposits or the bonus money or something like that out there. Maybe things kind of progress a little bit. We see a different kind of customer be more confident customer depending on how favorites and overs do the first couple season here. But that's going to be an interesting dynamic to follow not just this week, not just next week. But as we move forward here and also to see price discrepancies from state to state and all those different kinds of things again, a lot of speculation and that's Another theme of the show here just waiting to see what happens but that's something that's been very intriguing to me as legal sports betting has grown throughout the United States. Certainly. There's so much speculation this year I mean speculation and putting a price point on it usually leaks opportunity especially for guys like myself. But again, you like to have data points I have it I mean really we got one mature mark in the state, of Anna and one market in the state of New Jersey that's rapidly getting to becoming a mature market allow these states i. don't know if they're going to necessarily have a big say at least this year but but certainly something we gotta keep a well aware of your moving forward and who knows I mean something. That might obviously shock I the next couple of weeks and we see it I would say it's not a part of my thought process too much right now but but it could be by week. To. Highlight game here for ATS DOT IO radio, we're going to be having this video over on our ats youtube page that is the browns taking on the Ravens at a game with. Interest to me got the browns shirt on here on what you could see them trying to hide my fat beer gut from the camera but got the browns shirt on here. Looking forward to the start of this season with dynamics skill players, they signed Kareem Hunt in extension. They've got the to back setup they've got landry and O Bj they've got talent at tight end now with Austin Hooper and they've got Kevin Stansky on. The other hand they're taking on a Baltimore team that not much has really changed or basically the same team from last year a team that was a pre season super bowl favorite up there with the preseason super bowl favorites. I should say still Lamar Jackson still, John, harbaugh what do you think here about the Ravens Su are laying seven and a half or eight as this number trickles down a little bit in the market. Eileen, with the browns here. Obviously can't question the talented the have I mean the problem for the Browns spent coaching continuity and I would say lack of having a head coach specific last year with Freddie Kitchen. So you know the fancy could be horrible but I think I still think he's upgrade over Freddie Kitchen. So having a little bit more from that department I, think I would say is better for the Bronx and also is better for the Browns I. mean he talking about off-season noise the last years the browns have been the the paramount of off-season noise whether it'd be Baker Mayfield whether it'd be hard knocks from a couple of years ago whether it be B. J. I mean I know you're there. So maybe you're not a good. I would say somebody that can make maybe price point this califor- but I barely heard anything from the browns this year compared offseason as far as it goes I know that's a Brownstown and they talk about twenty four seven but I think not having any noise or at least the perception of not having any noise this year for the browns. Positive. I also think being able to to play Lamar Jackson, defend his style for the third time I. Think it's a positive having all offseason to defend him in having the game failed is a positive for the browns. The fact that they went into Baltimore last year beat up the ravens should give them a sense of of optimism that they can hang. So yeah, I think anything above. Seven a bit off a little bit on around here even though historically the browns are the worst team in the NFL bar nine as far as season openers, they've won one season opener since two doubt our says one, thousand, nine, nine since they started it back up. I. Know You're well aware of that. Yeah I wish I could say remember the game they won but I actually don't. Know One thing I did see you know division dogs very good week one, thirty, eight, sixteen in one, the last fifty, five times that's happened. So that's something that maybe favors the browns a little bit as far as the hype train very guarded optimism I would say you know in this area born raised in the Cleveland area guarded optimism would be what I would call it. But what's interesting is like you said I feel like nationally or at. least in gambling circles, it's the Arizona. Cardinals are kind of getting that Cleveland browns treatment here this year with cuyler Murray with cliff Kingsbury going to play really fast with getting De'andre Hopkins and I'd say a Simmons and all that the cardinals have kind of taken over that mantle as team that everybody wants to buy into the colts are a beloved team out there some people kind of getting on the chargers bandwagon like you said, the Browns Damn. Brady. Whatever everyone knows about Tampa Bay already. The browns aren't that team this year and maybe that does help them and Baker said all the right things for the most part you about getting focused again and stuff like that, and maybe he's got a good rapport with Stefanski. God. Knows it's got to be better than his report with. Kitchens. Yeah I mean you know the the browns tavern chance to do something special here and we'll get a good litmus test in week one with that being said and I think both of us do kind of lean with the browns here a little bit. This is the you're the poster child for not overreacting to what you see and week one if the browns get their asses kicked and it is a possibility, it doesn't mean that they're bad. If the browns beat the Ravens, it doesn't mean that the Ravens are regressing don't read too much into this single game because I think you could wind up costing yourself some money here in subsequent weeks if you do. On the biggest. Week of the entire NFL season year in year out is overreacting to one week that week one sample size I. Love Is. Only, of that going on and we quite this year I hopefully, there's market overreaction but I agree with you I could see the browse win in this game outright Oregon seem losing the game by three four touchdowns and let me not you know say be too much down on Baltimore I think outside of quarterback and again, Lamar Jackson was the MVP. Last year, I think the Ravens have the best roster and at least the deepest roster in the NFL, and maybe that doesn't come to for wishing in this game but I think over the course of the season having that very deep roster even though everyone's living in the fifty three man roster in the NFL I think having that depth talent for the Ravens. Why they're still clear cut the favorites at least in the AFC north. Well maybe not the strongest pick from both of us here but we do have a lean towards the browns in this browns ravens game here for this video on our ats youtube page. And we certainly encourage you to go check out all of the content not only at ats dot io but also on our youtube page as well. We're a couple more games I WANNA hit on with you here before we. Wrap things up for today's show. I thought that this was an interesting one. SEATTLE. Atlanta Seattle to two and a half point favorite depending on where you look this one's kind of all over the place but hasn't hit that magic number of three to this point. We saw some under money come in earlier in the week we've seen a little bit of over by back now from forty nine and a half. Down to forty nine but it was forty eight and a half forty eight at some places here that surprised me to seal it would of under money here. But I am seeing people generally a little bit higher on the Seahawks I think then they've been over the last couple of years and the Falcons being an afterthought with Tom Brady at Tampa Bay, and of course, the saints being as good as they are. Pure. Powering Seattle by a half here. So not a huge overlay and. Probably agreed with more the opening number. Then Seattle getting a bunch of money Seattle's on the Toria slow start at least the five last five years under Pete Carroll I. Mean they're all five against spread in in week wine and playing a competitive Atlanta team The problem is Atlanta's don't team really relies on an home crowd I not going to have it this year. How's that going to impact them? To me, I know real bet on this one and I it went to three. Obviously, I'd take a Chaka Lanta plus the points there but right now current situation nothing for me. Now I guess in general I don't know maybe I should have done this for a video, but it just kind of came to me now no preseason you mentioned that the seahawks not a great week one team and that's with. ATTRITIONAL preseason over the last five years and they're typically a good preseason team, right? Yeah. So so what what does that mean to you that there's no preseason I mean are you looking for offense because we expect tackling? Expect defenses to maybe be behind a little bit because they haven't been hitting as much. Are you expecting lower scoring games because offenses don't really have the timing down yet? What do you think the absence of a preseason does here gameplay standpoint I'm just going to be perfectly honest I don't know and the market's pretty much says. Because we see the I think case by case basis, some games against steamed billy over some of the total is coming down I'm not seeing your the market generally speaking reacting You know in one direction as far as the toll goes you know what I worry. I'M GONNA give credit to warn sharp here and I think as we get to contact because we've had limited contact in as far as leading up to it is for a Not As or at Least Limited Ota's not having that contact as far as the four preseason games I'm worried about once these teams do go live and I agree with Warren here. We could be seeing some injuries early on the season a lot more frequently. So that is my biggest concern as far as week one goes maybe the best indicator here the Thursday night football game between the taxes and the chiefs. This total as we're recording here is dropping it's down to fifty three and a half at some places down as low as fifty three at others clearly a sharp move on the under because it's an over paradise for recreational bettors out. There all the fantasy football players in this game, Holmes and Watson. It's a stone cold over for recreational bettors. I actually liked the over in this game a little bit too because I think tackling will be impacted early on in the year but sharp money coming in on the under here maybe suggests that could be the philosophy that you know no preseason hurts the offense a little bit but. I guess we'll wait and see because. Ultimately. Speculation. We'll see I mean I know they got deeper pockets, but we've never had a cove in nineteen. Something where we've been dealing with this before so even the guys the professional syndicate groups and whatnot I mean unless they know specifically players are going to be out because of positive cases I mean to me, it's inspected I don't care if you're ten dollar parlay better or your guide betting tens of thousands on a game we never been in this situation before. So your guess is as good as my as far as I'm concerned. It's an excellent point and hopefully we'll have a little bit more clarity on some of these things next week. Lastly, I want to do one more game preview here a highlight game for our ats youtube page that is the packers and the Vikings and I. Think this is a very interesting game as well. Packers a fraudulent thirteen and three team last year everybody will agree with that what they beat. The Vikings twice last season, which is something that helps springboard them to the NFC championship vikings linked two and a half year total, forty five and a half, forty six or so again, one of these division games in week one and we got a lot of those lot of familiarity we've talked about continuity. The packers have a lot of it. The Vikings don't is that the difference in this game. Saying. As far as the market because all all summer long you've seen professional life come in on the packers here a lot of guys that I respect took the packers early on in the summer plus three and a half obviously blue right through a very key number of Radi A. so you got to respect that in that regard in my opinion bowman even with all the turnover for me I still think Minnesota in at least in my barrings I have them power as the best team in that division. Now we're gets complicated is you know I think Minnesota is going to be one of those teams That's probably most affected by not having the crowd noise and the Dome that can be one of probably top five, top six crowd noise venues all of the NFL not having that what is is worth a half point point point two points I'm not sure at this point Minnesota is one of those teams that I give more than three points to as far as home field advantage I, my numbers three right. Now, I'd lean with the Vikings I respect the money on the packers, but but I'd still lean Minnesota I. Don't like what I've seen this aussies as far as the packers I hated their draft. I wasn't alone draft into me wasn't even about your love. It was their picks after Jordan love that in Lichen for example, they took Aj Dylan from Boston College who I thought would have been like a fifth or sixth round or at best a took him and you know we're we're not a fall camp. He's running third string. We'll know shit I mean he wasn't that good. Am I mean not that? Great. Fit for that offense or Green Bay. So to me Oh. Vikings. A little respect the money vikings a little name for me. Well as we talked about one of our previous videos here, division dogs in week one, thirty, eight, sixteen in one in the last fifty, five games I don't know if I love Green Bay in this situation however, one thing I do love here is teasing green bay up to plus eight. This is the prototypical Stanford Wong teaser where you teased through three and seven, and furthermore with extra points. Now being a mess in the NFL you get four, you get five, you get six you're getting some really important numbers here in the NFL to take green bay up to eight and a half, and the thing about Green Bay is when you look. Back at them from last season, they were an outstanding first quarter team. What are the best first quarter teams in the NFL you tease them up to eight and a half give them an eight and a half point head start, and they have a good first quarter. You're sitting in the catbird seat for most of that game and Minnesota probably not the best. Catch up teams here with no Stefan Digs Adam feeling is always irt does get the lion's share the targets when digs is in there. So he'll have to have a big game. You wonder about Jefferson if he ends up playing for the Vikings. So I think this is a great spot to use one of those six point teasers on Green Bay take them from two and a half to eight and a half get three, four, five, six, seven of those key numbers there in that range and find something else to pair it with you've got your like maybe bring Indianapolis down to minus two something like that. Maybe you take a look. At. Eight and a half. Yeah. Broncos low-scoring Monday night football game the altitude factor you know maybe a packers, broncos, teaser packers, colts tease or something like that can keep in mind you are tied to just playing spreads money lines total sear. You've got teasers in the market and different other things that you can use to your advantage absolutely, and that's where the industry's moving and even a guy like me as spent. So ingrained outside total. Signed toll tough for me to think that you know a lot of times transitioning to all the derivative markets but I mean advantage teasers been good to me. Last couple of years that the packers is one that certainly circle of my board even though I lean vikings teasing through those numbers at three and seven are soul valuable and I think are going to be valuable necessarily and when I expect to be a lower scoring game. Lower scoring game, and again, you've got this high variance environment here in maybe six points maybe a little bit of a safety net here. Again, variants and teasers generally don't go together. Well, that's why you don't see a lot of them in college football but I think the NFL just because of the year-over-year personnel, all the coaches that are you know a lot of carbon copy coaches everyone following Sean McVeigh's lead a lot. Of guys that we know that have been around for a long time, it's just a more projectable safer kind of environment here I think earlier on in the season for us to bet with a little bit more confidence, and if you can bet with confidence and use one of those teasers as you said, one of those advantage teasers, probably a pretty good idea here early on in the NFL season absolutely would highly recommend it. We'll make sure you check out. Our full podcast shows on ATS DOT IO radio and makes you keep enjoying these videos over an ats youtube page as well. All right with that Brad, we'll go ahead and finish up today's show unless there's anything else you WANNA mention from an NFL standpoint. We'll out an NFL pick that I like. I am going to go to one nine hundred teased a little bit sort of say advantage teaser around the Broncos. I'm GONNA take the broncos but I would say wait here because all the news can be breaking his boy, the broncos loss, von Miller, I mean I get it very hot top defensive player in the NFL the reality is he really doesn't move the market in code, move the market to me I'm gonNA play against the Titans team that I think certainly overachieved last year specifically in the playoffs over achieving I think that's the lasting memory and a lot of the public better minds. The reality is for me specifically in a Kobe nineteen season an early game in altitude. The to me already is a major positive for Denver. You look at their home games the last thirty years in week one and week to their thirty three and four straight up I mentioned straight up because they're getting points in this game I think with less conditioning less Ota's and whatnot less hitting in practice. I don't think that's a major a good sign for Tennessee going up to Denver, broncos plus two and a half and wait maybe get it three on Monday with the public I think going to be bet on the titans especially with what the titans did in the playoffs last year you know again, we remember what we most recently seen. In a lot of people love what the Titans did love what the titans looked like offensively after Ryan Tannehill took over I agree I, think you do wind up seeing a three probably doesn't last for long. But if you see one definitely worth taking their in that second Monday night football game, and as we do this more Brad, we're going to streamline this a lot more I. Know I had a lot of promotion for the ATS Youtube and all that throughout the show. But as we do this more as we get back into our midseason form I'm sure we'll streamline the show a little bit. We'll have some shorter episodes for you here but. No matter. How long it takes I love talking football with you. It's great to have you back on the show here and what's happening over at bradpowerssports.com right now. I appreciate. Then always a pleasure talking to you man I I love doing this show whether it's audio video. Especially, it's a pleasure you can see me now to. See. My, Beautiful Face Leisure. I mean I. Don't myself so much that I put on my glasses that's how much they want us. Kidding Abramowicz four SICOM it's. Business as usual. So what I've talked about over the last several years doing doing this podcast with you is newsletter game right up on every single college game game right off for every single NFL game topics of the week power eggs trends, you name it it's all in there and the cost seventy nine bucks now for one week, not for one thick now for one spore while for the. Entire season through the Super Bowl Hell through strengths ray. If we have one big ten packs, they played a spring you're covered all the way through an entire year for seventy nine bucks Brad Powers Dot com, and as always makes you follow Brad on twitter bradpowers and the number seven and you can follow me at skating tripods on twitter as well. Brad always a treat always a pleasure brother. Love's chat and football with you appreciate your time as always and we'll talk to you again next. Thursday. All right, sounds good talking in. There you go. There's bradpowers professionally Andy Capper at Bradpowerssports.com at Brad powers and the number seven on twitter tomorrow I'm supposed to do the box but I've been thinking about it. I've got to do my circa million picks or at least the thoughts that I. Have for the circa million here on Friday. So I'll be on the air with something in podcast form maybe not in video form since up doing it solo and I don't know it feels kind of weird i. feel like I should have only fans to do that or something like that. But we'll be doing some stuff here for ATS DOT IO radio on Friday they'll do it for me. For listening everybody and we'll talk to you again tomorrow.

"Can I Leave The New Job To Take The Dream Job?"

"Setting the pace on the pursuit of happiness. These these the Ken Coleman show where you discover what you were born to do and how to make it happen now. Helping you get unstuck and on the path to your dream job. Ken Coleman coming to you. Live from Ramsey studios in Nashville. You're joining a conversation about who you are in what you were created to do where you want to do it and how you can get there. I'm so excited you're here because you were created to fill unique role that means you are in fact needed but it means you've gotta do it. You've got a duty to be used. Somebody out there needs you and I am here to be your guide to help you get the clarity you need to step confidently out on that path to fulfill your purpose. We were created work to contribute eight to our fellow men. And so. That's why we're here. This is not a political talk show. This is a purposeful talk. Show welcome on and all Sarah Starts Arts at all. I started off rather in Cleveland Ohio. Sarah you're on the Ken Coleman show her. How are you sir? I am living the dream. What's going on I I am not living in? We'll get you there so I mean I listened to the show. I don't know probably for the year and I I feel like I have identified the what I want to be doing I just struggle with how to do it so I feel like I really wanted to go and do cosmetology school but like I have this voice in my head that is my mother and it sells me basically Siklie. You're not gonNA make any money at that. That's not really a career you know and I know like shut those things out but then I looked into that. It's like twenty thousand dollars to go to school and you know. Obviously I have to work to so to work fulltime and to do that part time it feels like I would be exhausted and I just don't know I I mean I hate my day job so much that it's like. I don't even know that I can stick. Stick it out to like get through two years of doing cosmetology school when you have to build a clientele and seems like is that even the right path. I don't know but let's break this thing down because what you've done is you've concocted this impossible climb and I got to tell you right now. It's not impossible so let's start with making it possible all right. Let's forget cosmetology school for moment. Why do you want to even go go to cosmetology school? What's the work you WANNA do? If I just give you the work tomorrow what do you want to do during the day. I mean I know that I want to be with people. Have I mean I'm very social I love to like seasoned people like 'cause people have joy when they like to be happy. I'm I'm definitely like I like to serve definitely me But I also need like I need to see a result I need like tangible will result in something and to be physically doing something like right now. I sit at a desk all day and it drives me crazy because I need to be up and moving okay. So here's the deal. You did give me a good answer. That's a very deep answer and I love that answer Sarah but you thought to heart the reason you want to go to cosmetology school is because in your mind giving women makeovers or doing makeup for people is the very thing you just described. It is the way that that all manifest itself. It's physical labor. You're you're doing something to make people happy and feel joy because you make them look pretty. I mean it's all the things you just described so the reason you want to go to cosmetology schools because you really like the Eddie of doing makeup for people yes or no Sara. Sorry let me ask you this. How much money do you need to make if we replace your current day job? How much money is that? Like forty thousand forty thousand. So let's back into this for a moment. Do you have to go to cosmetology school. I don't know this is. This is not a trick question. Do you have to go to cosmetology school to do makeup and make people feel beautiful goal. I mean I honestly don't I think you have to have a license by my will hold on. We'll get there but Sarah I'm trying to help you see a path so I gotta know. Is there a difference between getting a license and going to cosmetology school. Well you have to have like in the state of Ohio yet. have so many clock hours so you you do have to go to school. It's not like you take like one course and here don let me. I know but I'm not trying to be stubborn. I'm truly trying to find this out. Could you go get your license without having to go to school now. You can't. There's no possible way. I just need to make sure I understood that. Okay so now let's look at this. Let's keep going further. If you go to cosmetology school. Does it have to all be done at a certain time. Like is it have to be a two year nonstop Knock it out full-time or is it.

Seven Zachary joins US IN PHOENIX. Arizona's accurate on the Ken Coleman show. Hello Ken how are you. I live in the dreams accurate. What's going on well? I'm definitely not trying to relocate on enjoying a beautiful day down here Phoenix. Hey I tell you what I got. My goal to play golf in Phoenix Arizona. Soon I've been to Phoenix many times. But I've never teed it up in that gorgeous city yes I actually I didn't shake your hand when you guys are down here for an event. Oh Oh yes. See Church volunteer that day. We'll thank you for helping out. We appreciate that. Of course it was awesome. I love the experience. Good how can help you today. Well I am about a year away from graduating My degree's in finance It's a very marketable degree. I know I can use it for a lot of things but I pretty fairly certain that I do not want to go necessarily into the finance industry So when I was wondering if maybe I should even consider look into some other degrees And like maybe add another year or maybe another semester to my education and then go go that route or should I just stick with it for another year and then move onto something else. Well the answer to that is I only want you stay in school longer or to get different agree. If it is the only only way you get in in the dance the only ticket you know that you can get in with is a degree if it's is that kind of field or that kind of career job. Well then. Yeah I want you to do that but but I want you to be very clear where it is. You want to go what you WANNA do why you want to do it before we make a decision on on education and really yes so you know that you knew I was gonna say that. So what is it that you think you WanNa do or you WanNa want to try. Well I do like numbers Numbers Guy but I also like to work with people so I kinda see myself not necessarily in the finance world war maybe and like Maybe like a project where we deal with Analytics and some kind of really enjoyed statistics class of physics my favorite class. I've taken so far. Ding Ding Ding Ding Zachary. I think now we're onto something you don't want to be in finance but you do like being in numbers numbers and really it's about data and analyzing the data so that some solutions can be created and you know you're part of that. I think that's what you dig that whole. Statistics Class Class. Set you on fire. That's a really big clue. So now let me ask you this would you have to so. Let's say well Silas backup for a second. Do you have in your mind. Two or three or four different career paths or jobs that would encompass that love US statistics and data analyzing analyzing the numbers. Not really I really do well. You need to do that now because right now all you know is I really like numbers in crunching numbers numbers right yes and looking for patterns and all that kind of stuff. Let's great you know that. But you gotTa know how that's going to manifest itself in the workplace so so you have one clear homework assignment. Your homework assignment is you've got to go identify all the different ways that a person who's good good with numbers good. It seemed patterns problem solving with that information the love of statistics you know. Oh you know how to describe you. Where does that exist? Where do those people work how those people work? So the where is think of industries things of that nature and then the how would be the job function itself. Are you tracking with me. So far I think so yes. Yeah of course so when you figure out where those people are working and how they were now you have a good idea of what's possible and so this is the process of clarifying verifying. It's all all part of getting clear. So you're going okay. Well now I've found five or six different things and now I WANNA go shadow. Those people see my parents know any of those people are any my friends acquaintances or professors or anybody. And I gotta get around those people. That's the proximity principle in order to Zachary wants to. Do you got to be around people that are doing it in in places where it is happening. But you can't do that until you're clear on where those people are and how they're working then we go hang out and we learn more and that's when we clarify I and we verify this is what I wanna do and I know how to get there then we can answer the education question. Okay and then you get that education then you start getting gene the qualifications getting connected you know that Stage two and three qualified states to get connected stays three right now. You just gotTa get clear that stage one so. I think it's really close for you but I can't answer your question about education other than to say if you find out that you don't need anything more than the four year degree that you've got and you can take that finance finance major and you just got your ticket and the into the world of I got my degree and you can go get the specialization. In the experience with that finance disagree the No. Don't take a second longer in school than you need to so close though you know I no no no no no no. I'm sorry. Go misunderstand understand no finish the degree but I'm saying I'm saying I think it's possible that you could take that finance degree that you're almost done with and you can and that's it's your degree and then you can go get specialized and get some experience and work your way into a statistics type role. That's what I'm saying so I shouldn't necessarily switch out of my degree. I just finish out my year and then go from there. I said don't switch if it's not required but if you can go into if you can go into data analysis or statistics type type work without a statistics major yet. Don't just don't change anything. Just get the degree and get on with it. You gotta out. Yeah you got some homework today all right. I'm I'm in. You know what to do. I just told you do it go do it. Let's go to Rachel Online in Dallas. Texas Rachel you're on the. Ken Coleman Show Ken. Thanks for taking my call. Sure so I've been in south at a very sexual dealership for a little over two years now. My ultimate goal was at the three year marker to move into into finance which is considered a promotion and however after about two years of working there And dealing with management. I just don't see that advancement happening happening so I guess my question is should I start looking for a job. That of course we'll pay less because cells is a very good paying jobs by Take another job actually. Have Room for promotion Well I talked about this in my youtube show today. You know. There are three qualifiers Fires for should I take a pay cut number one. Can you afford it if you make some sacrifices and cut some fat in the old budget. You know what I mean. Slow that burn rate down without touching your savings that's qualification number. One qualification number. Two has to be Does it Does it put me on the path that I wanna be on and then qualification number. Three is is their growth in my pay in the near term. Meaning you're not two or three years right before you get back to where you are in this moment if it answers all three of those than yes. I'm fine with that but I but at the same time. I'm rather you if it doesn't meet those three qualifications Rachel which is straightforward. Then you stay where you are right now until you can find that finance role somewhere else. So you don't have any interruption action in pay. Go look for the thing. You actually WANNA do. This is the Ken Coleman Show welcome back America. This is the Ken Coleman show. It is your show because it's about you while you were created to do your work what is your contribution. What is your sweet spot? The intersection should've what you do. Best and what you love to do. Most because when you're there you want to create a result that matters deeply to you. That's the formula. What you do best talent what you love to do? Most passion results that matter most your mission. The three must work like a formula. You use what you do best as a tool or weapon these are your abilities and your qualities right skills and then character traits. These are what you do best. You use them as weapons or tools in this good fight to do the work you love to spit out a result of the work that you look at you say that matters deeply to me. That's the formula for meaning and by the way that success I don't WanNa offend anybody and I'M NOT GONNA call anybody out but I'm just decided I'm going to go on a little mini rant for second and I don't care if it offends you because some of you need to hear this. Some of you are following people on Social Media and you're liking liking all their post and all they're doing is showing pictures of themselves on the stairway their private jet or they're on the tarmac. Next to this this really really expensive car or they're doing a motivational video. That's saying a bunch of nothing on their back porch that it overlooks the ocean. And you're liking this stuff like it's like it's straight from heaven. I'm GonNa tell you what that is that is drivel. It is it is garbage designed to make you feel good and they're telling you how awesome you are and how great you can be and they're not telling on you anything about who you are and how to really figure out what it is you're supposed to do and why that matters. It's all a bunch of motivational gibberish. Garesh and I'm GonNa Tell You some folks if that's what you're consuming it's going to give you a little burst of a high and then you're GonNa get back to your rule world. You're gonNA feel so much worse about how you live than they live. I want that life and that's going to set you up for frustration because it's not a complete picture now really rolling and circulates going to create more comparison. 'cause you're looking at their life and you're comparing pairing where you are compared to where they are. You're gonNA find that stuff on my instagram page. My social media accounts because here we talk about what really really matters and figuring out what you do best what you love to do most and using the talent and passion to beyond mission. You'll have plenty of money. I know teachers who were on fire and love their work. They live less than they make in their net worth millionaires. There's no private magette on their instagram page. There's no ocean vista on their instagram. Page so you better be really careful because that's snake oil stuff designed Zayn to make you feel a certain way and it's creating a bad appetite in you. They're giving you what you want. Little feeling. Lean to keep coming back and like in their stuff and they're getting rich by manipulating your feelings. Oh boy I've done it now. Oh my my goodness. I've really done it but it needs to be said. What's your mental diet? What are you consuming? Assuming you need to be intentional to figure out what your unique role is what your unique contribution is. Stop Doc comparing yourself trying to be like everybody else and if you're chasing money let me tell you something. There's no meaning at the end of chasing money but if you chase meaning there's always plenty of money because it's not about how much you have. You have enough because you're not driven by money knows other role in money I'm all about. You may get as much money as you can. But if it's not tied to meaning you're not going to be happy. I know this eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven is the number. Let's go to Olivia. WHO's on the line in Glen Burnie Maryland? Livy you're on the Ken Coleman show how are you. I am living the dream. Olivia what's going John. Okay so I know that I'm espionage for and I want to find a new job. I'm just not sure we'd be the best role for for me are alluvial hold on one second. I didn't hear hardly any. If you can hold your phone maybe still by your mouth. We'll see if that sounds better. I didn't pick up anything that you said. Can you hear to me. That's good. Let's try that about now. Yup Go ahead so I know that. I'm meant to be an entrepreneur whereas that is my goal all I wanNA be a one. What entrepreneur a serial entrepreneurs? Okay Gotcha all right And I just WANNA know how. How do I go about finding a good role I am baby step two and I do want to move back to Tennessee. I did live in. Murfreesboro are going to come back to the Nashville area. So just twenty. What advice that you have well sounds to me like step one for you is just getting back to the area you really want to live of and then step two is coming up with the entrepreneurial venture is that right right? Yeah that's your priority so the priority then becomes how do alive move back to Middle Tennessee without interrupting my income. Because you're trying to pay off debt and your Dave Ramsey's baby steps baby step up to you're paying off debt. How much debt do you have? Do you think you're gonNA pay it off. I had about ten thousand. I think I can pay it off by September great so so are you married read. Okay so that's even easier so you don't have to worry about anybody else this is. This is your decision so i. I don't don't like the idea of you starting something for your fulltime income right now. But I'm okay that you start something on the side once you get the Middle Tennessee. But the priority is. Let's get a job in middle Tennessee. That is stable because that day job is going to fund your dream job and all those dream jobs that you're thinking about serial entrepreneurship so let's replace your current income or make a little bit more by getting a good Gig here in middle Tennessee. Step one want step to keep paying off the debt. Get through the debt. Snowball staged number two the step number two rather and you're in middle Tennessee. Got The debt gone. Let's get that three to six months. Emergency Fund fully-funded okay. That's that's the second step. When you get that Emergency Fund funded funded at three to six months? That's days baby. Step three then I want you and you move all under the fifteen percent. You can do that and so as you move into that next stage of saving fifteen percent of of your income towards retirement. I want you to begin thinking about and let me let me take a step back. You can start thinking about what that venture is. But I don't want you to launch the side-hustle I'd also until you get to the fifteen percent. So now you've stabilized and you're putting money away and now I want you to think about launching so be thinking what what you might do what you want to do. But don't even start the side-hustle until you've got your financial path on the right on the right path. Excuse gives me in the right step and so that's an investing fifteen percent of your income so your day job is totally taken care of you in the now and it setting you up for the next. Then I'd start trying stuff but do it on the side ride. Do It on the side and you don't leave your day job of Middle Tennessee until the side-hustle can fund all of your needs so it replaces your fulltime salary. That's the path I just wanted to kind of play that out for you so you could see where that is going Folks we've got a brand new free resource we just launched. And it's going bananas. I think we lost it two weeks ago. It's called should I quit my job Quiz Madison. The associate producer told me that people are calling the show crazy. Hey I took the quiz and my goodness told me exactly what I so. I don't think there's going to be a whole lot of surprises when you take this quiz but as I've been saying it's it's the nudge.

We're not talking politics talking purpose purpose in your work work making that contribution that you were created to make for the betterment of our world eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven is the number eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven you can ask in the email and ask at Ken. Coleman Dot Com can also shoot us your questions on instagram and twitter at Ken Coleman both of those platforms go to Travis joins us in Long Island New York. Travis you on the Ken Coleman Show Hi Ken. Thank you so much for Michael Sherman. What's going on So I had a quick question Field I'm working in is finance and I currently in my organization have the opportunity to have basically to pass one would stay in finance adventure towards business and operations and I'm trying to think of what would be the the more promising to feel like I already know which one but I think I just need your assistance with that. I have a degree. My master's in Business Administration with a minor minor in finance. So I think As this thing I know my answer but I wanNA Kinda get clarification. Yeah so which one do you think it is. So I think it's going to be the business coverage begins. One of the main reasons I treat had three interviews for this position the Most recent was last week when the Senior leadership actually. They called me in to have almost like a personal interview with me to get more of my background. My in my interest as well but more my my personal background so I think. That's the ops ops the actual area that field when Project my career a little bit more. I believe because not only income but also it would open up networking communication. Would it would involve a lot of my finance background that I have nine years. But it would also incorporate a newer aspect as far as with the operations and projects that I would be in charge of and I think that might be one of the route So what do you. What do you doubt because you called me going? I've got two. I love 'em I'm leaning down at doubting the most of it is because it's a new challenge because it's a new area that I haven't been nine months since I've been in finance for nine years I I feel like that's the fear that but Well how much of your how much of your op Excuse me how much of your finance background comes to play in this business operations Israel so my finance background up until recently within the past three years hasn't played much rural the past three years. I've been taking on more of a operations standpoint within my finance role dealing with more analytics as well as project In which case I've been Basically the headliner for these projects where my managers have come to me personally to take good morning to kind of incorporate what the process needs to be So I think that's where my interest is stemming from yeah. I wanted to make sure that I will more of an answer my question. You didn't answer my question. I said how much of your finance background comes into play in at least for the last three years a lot of it right so so that's a good thing right. So here's the only thing missing when I asked you which one you would choose. You said Biz operations and you said it's because while I've had three interviews there and you kind of walked around a couple times you walked around the tree a couple of times and I never heard well Ken. Its business operations nations. Because I really love that work I love it I really enjoy it. Might interest right exactly. Do you enjoy it more. I mean here's what I'm saying. Let's look at option option A. and B. We'll call business operations a because it's clearly your your number one choice at this point but but but you said all the good things you just left left one out and I'm not trying to get the right answer here Travis. I'm trying to be what you want me to be. Which is you're sounding board? I get that it gives you greater career opportunities internees. I get that it gives you more money. I get all that but does the work itself. Do you enjoy the possibility of an email. You've not done a ton of it. You've done enough over the last three years. Is it the clear choice as it relates to. I'm getting up every day and I'm doing this and what it stirs up and kicks up and as I grow and develop within this field. Do I enjoy that work more than the traditional financial so I I strongly believe so. I believe that this this has been a natural extension of where my career has been so far and where it's looking to go. It feels like it's the new challenge. Yeah exactly yeah but I don't want you to be scared that you don't have what it takes because I think you do have. I think I think the fear comes from the Just the uncertainty that. I haven't been and in that position or that area environment rather so I think that's the only certain people I I take on your challenges as a form of new opportunity and I think that that's go potential Angela. Paying one last question. Do you have the skills and the ability to do it. Yes or no absolutely go. Don't you think about. There's no doubt there. Did you hear that Doc. He sure move forward Dogo NCAA helping men and women get clear. Get the answer into the age old question. Why am I here? Why should I do in my life? Oh you have the answers I promise. Let me ask you questions dive into the conversation. Sation listen to others call in and wrestle with the same basic thing you're wrestling with and then dial in I'm GonNa take good care of you. You are not a prop up for me to entertain people with. I'm actually on your side. I am rooting for you. Equal parts counselor coach each and cheerleader. Let's go Gimme a chance. Eight four four seven four seven two five seven seven is the number. Morgan joins US now in. Houston in Texas. Morgan you're on the Ken Coleman show. Hi Ken how are you Morgan. I'm living the dream. What's going on all right? So I've been listening to your podcasts outcasts for a few weeks now Shuttle bus year after I graduated trying to figure out what to do with myself about four months ago got offered a job. I knew it's not what I wanted to do. But but at the time I needed a job and I took it And I've started listening to you. Tried to get my things together. It's hard to be around the right people the dream job kind of bounding and came knocking. And I'm in my fourth interview with them and you know trying to figure out what I need to do. An exit plan. I worked for really small family medicine clinic on the medal. Stand there's only one of me. I'm the only one that knows how to do my job. I've only been there for four months and I don't know how to leave and I feel guilty and I'm such a people pleaser. I'm afraid that I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa not let my soul take this opportunity because I don't know how to do this the right way. Well you are going to take this opportunity opportunity because I'm gonNA tell you how to do it the right way. Yes so first of all. Let's talk about your mindset right now if you don't take this this dream job because of guilt. How miserable are you going to be down the road? My Gosh. I'd probably miserable. They've been for the last year which has not been they. Exactly exactly. Why in the world do you think that's the path? Now you hear how silly that sounds. So your mindset is his Co. owed them your misery. You don't owe the small medical clinic a life of average or below average. You don't know them that and so the very people that you feel bad about hurting their feelings are going to be the people you resent so your mindset needs to be. I've got to move forward and not I feel one second of guilt and you don't need to feel one second of guilt. So here's how you leave first of all you haven't got the job offer yet so so we're GONNA hold time okay. The minute you get the job offering you accept and you get a signature. You'RE GONNA walk in and you're going to say I'm by the way you in Italy's pope these people that have offered you the dream job. I WANNA leave wealth so I'm going to accept this position. I'm thrilled but I need to leave. Well it's important to me to leave well because I'm the only medical system this small clinic so I don't WanNa leave them high in dry. So can I go. Let them know that. Obviously I'm taking this position leaving and If they're want more than two weeks notice it puts them in a bind. Are you guys willing. Just just kind of tell them that what they say but if they say well no we really wants to start in two weeks. You don't really. Oh anybody more than two weeks notice you just don't and now now. Let's step into the next page so once we decide how long before you're going to leave okay whether it's two weeks notice three weeks notice it is four weeks notice. Whatever the next thing is you're going to do everything you can to train the next person or create a manual or do what do whatever it takes to leave well so that the person coming in behind you has a great opportunity to step in and fill the void instantly Jenner? Stay what I'm saying But they'll find somebody they'll find somebody you know. I'm not saying you're feeling but you're not you know. Sometimes we humans have this Messianic ASEAN complex. Right where we think. Well if I leave the whole world is going to crash around me and I'm not saying that you're saying that but there's a little bit of that mindset to where you go. I'm the only one so if I leave sick. People are not GonNa get helped and when you keep concocting that story in your head like that. It didn't it. That's when the guilt just gets to be ridiculous but that's a lie that's not true. You are replaceable. They'll find somebody to replace you and you could still leave well. But you're you're stepping into your dream job. Yes you only been there four months us. Tell them this is not my dream job. I found my dream job and I have to pursue this. And they're really nice. Healthy people are GonNa go good for. You cannot wait a go morgan. Go go go right. If they're unhappy unhealthy they're gonNA show their true colors and that's a sign for you get out. Does that help yes. I think it is needed to hear it from somebody else. Do and help going. Yeah listen listen just do exactly exactly what I told you. Just be classy. How would you you know? It's almost like step out of the situation. And what if you're writing a script for somebody else. Let's say you're right in a play and the person was doing exactly what you do. How would you write that character to be a hero and be really classy? Just Act that way you know what to do. You're really good person. I believe in you and Morgan. Can you should be fired up.

Hey listen thank you for listening to show. Thanks for calling on an Morgan is a rockstar. Go Morgan Go. I love it. Let's go to Jamie next in Boston Massachusetts. Jamie you're on the Ken Coleman show. I think you so much for taking my call. Sure Jamie we got about two minutes so hit me with that question. Let's figure out what I can. I do quickly for you. Okay so I work in a law firm where my managing attorney is kind of like toxic. So I just started working here about nine months ago. And it's kind of we've been butting heads since ice guarded And the type of practice. They're not it's not like like a huge area so it's Kinda minimal where I can go Otherwise so my question to you would be like. What would you suggest that I do? If there aren't aren't any other firm got that kind of in my area that practicing my area off. Are you willing to move out of the state out of the city. Yes not too far well but I would expand already work. I already work outside of the state that I live in. Well I guess my point is I. Would it expand your search a little bit because your your type of law. Just tell me real quick in three or four words. What kind of law are you practicing better disability? Yeah Yeah I just don't believe that you're limited to just where you are in Boston but let me let me give you a practical advice on what you're dealing with this toxic leader. I don't want take verbal abuse and I don't want to take any kind of humiliation but I would dial it down I would. I would do everything that you can do to try to avoid any confrontation confrontation and the budding of heads. Using your words I would do everything. You can't bite your lip take the high road. Because you're not going to be there long long you and I both know it. Because he's probably or she's probably not going to change And so what I would do is be looking for something else. I would take the high road if it continues. I would ask for a conversation just to say hey. What do you feel the tension? Maybe a healthy conversation. See what happens if you feel safe enough to do that. Had A couple of it so. Nothing's changing no okay. So here's the art great. That's information I needed. So here's the deal. Take the high road I want you to practice taking the high road and avoiding all costs confrontation. And you gotta look for something else. That's in your field or you're going to have to say what's similar enough that I gotta get Outta there but don't don't assume that there's nowhere else that you can practices. That's not true when you're GonNa have to expand your search and expand your horizons because you will be miserable if you don't get out of there so that's what that's what you need to do but but but stay there now. We want the stability not. I think you can do it on your strong enough lady to be able to handle that garbage put up with a little bit longer. Why you're getting out folks?

Why Im a Beekeeper: Laura Kimball, TruBee Honey

"Have you heard the buzz. Bees are cool. Okay that was a little corny but really more and more people are thinking about bees and how they are important or into agriculture. Why are they so important? How do we protect them? And why are people so passionate about beekeeping. Hello and welcome into the Tennessee magic moments podcast where we celebrate agriculture in our everyday life. I'm Samantha Jean. Nearly one third of our food supply depends on insect pollination most of which is accomplished by bees. You could say that they are the world's most important pollinator today. My guest knows a lot about bees. She's an entrepreneur that has taken pure curiosity and has turned into a sweet thriving. Local Business Laura Kimball with truly honey Laura Hi Samantha. How are you doing good today? So we are gathered around Laura's kitchen table or dining room table in Arlington in Tennessee and Arlington area. Tearing Arrington Tennessee. There's like so many pronounce totally every city in in the state. You got to know what you're doing but I drove down the road to such a quaint area and outside your home. Is this little sign that says local honey for sale so sorry back at the beginning. How did you get interested in and beekeeping? Well it's a long story but pretty simple. My husband and I eight both lived in North Carolina before we moved here and his name is Jeff Auto. He's a photographer was a photo journalist. And I was a writer and editor. We both worked in newspapers. Newspapers and I did a feature story about a season to be caper named James Smith and this is on the coast of North Carolina and it turned out that Jeff Fred my story and was very interested because he grew up next to a beekeeper and always wanted to keep bees so that year for Christmas. I got him a behalf as a surprise and he was very surprised and the next spring we got two colonies of bees to raise in our backyard and we were hobbyists for a few years and just kind of got hooked that way. We still had our normal jobs and the bees required not a ton of care when you have that few but but we really enjoyed it and then our colonies grew to about maybe eight hives in the backyard and then we had too much honey for for just for us in our friends so we thought maybe there was a market for it. We started selling honey at the Wilmington Riverfront farmers market. And we're so surprised. Because is the first Saturday we went to that farmers market. We didn't know what to expect. We thought on the way over to go for Bridge to get to the downtown area and on the way there we thought this is ridiculous. No one's going to buy our honey. This is going to embarrass ourselves and a few hours later. We had no money left and we were driving home with nothing in the car data so it was great and we stayed really small like that for several years and when we moved to Franklin and Arrington in two thousand and seven we started selling the Franklin farmers market and did that a few years and just kind of started to grow a grassroots following for raw local. Honey that's where it began. We we have a daughter and we just did this on Saturdays for a long time but doing farmers markets every Saturday is a huge commitment. Anyone anyone that farms and does the markets knows and many people do several markets a week in the spring and Summer seasons but we kind of started thinking that we'd also like to to wholesale and it's hard to do both so we embarked on sighing honey to a few local places wholesale in it's kind of grown from there. So you said when you I got interested in that you both had other jobs. Yes so at. What point did it become? You know we don't have to do our other jobs or was there there. You remember the moment where you thought. Hey I want to make this my career instead. I think it's partly the the beekeeping is only part of our of our business so much of our business has relied on our creativity and our communication skills calls just photography for advertising marketing. So I think there was a point where we thought instead of putting all our energy into other people's businesses. You know such as newspapers magazines things like that. Why don't we put all of our energy oliver creative energy into our business something that we can control the output of and some of the benefits of his? Well now this one thing to say that it's had a pipe dream but it's a lot of work. Yeah and I felt sometimes like the wizard of Oz is like you know. I'm wearing all these different hats selling hunting and talking to the customers ordering labels all these different things but I'm controlling my own destiny and it's exhausting but there is a feeling of accomplishment and you know what you asked about was sort of about a jumping off point and I think think for a long time we both did both and grew the business to a point where one of us could do it full time and that was me. It was kind of also at the time. Our daughter was starting kindergarten kindergarten and I was working nights so we kind of made a commitment to a lifestyle that we we. Don't WANNA be. We don't want to never see her You you know so I start my job at Kennedy. Do some freelance writing and the business full-time. He continued to work pretty much eighty hour weeks because he was doing trubisky fulltime and the photography. So there's always a jumping off well and that's not uncommon. Most people are not I. It's hard to say most but a lot of people who work in agriculture or in farming. have jobs off the farm. That's kind of Louis. Some of the reality that we're seeing today but I think it's exciting in that your story is. Is You know kind of an opposite direction where you had no farming background that's right Yuletide title agriculture and found yourself coming onto the farm of essence. Jeff had some agricultural background. He grew up in New York kind of close to Niagara Falls and he worked in orchards. And places like that as a kid needs to make extra money greenhouses so he has way more background in that than I do and part of my reporting work when we lived on the coast was a lot of environmental reporting it so we have sort of news backgrounds rounds in reporting and facts but yet no hands on no real hands on running of an agricultural business so if you if you went back in time and found your sure maybe fifteen year old self and said Hey. This is what you're going to be doing when you grow up. Do you think she would like look at you and just sit me like what. I'm going to work with bees and and Huntingdale I tell you what I think the BS. It'd be a surprise for sure that never entered my mind at all and and but I don't think my fifteen year old self will be surprised that I'm kind of margin to a different beat. Yeah now speaking you know being surprised What is an area about beekeeping or maybe having a small business that has been surprising to you I think for me? I think this is probably the most surprising thing to everyone about beekeeping because there is a lot of publicity about bees now and it's really romanticized and bees. These are in danger There's no doubt about that. And that's not what I'm talking about. The notion of keeping bees and being one with nature and being one with the bees is is very romanticized bees. Do staying people do have allergic reactions in beekeeping at the level that we do it is a lot of backbreaking work. We got to be outside and hundred degree weather. Because that's when the beezer flying an suit yes and it's it's I think most people will be surprised. How much work beekeeping really is? Yeah it's not easy let alone doing it on the scale that you guys are yes as far as packaging and bottling gene and marketing and I think a lot of small businesses are romanticized to use your word and then when you get into it you you realize. Oh Wow there's a lot of work and I think something we kind of touched on earlier too is that To make it as an agricultural enterprise now is hard especially sort of a mom and pop operation in. I think what most farmers would agree with. Is that there has to be variety. What you offer? And we've been fortunate that there's a market to sell our honey Wholesale in stores there's a market that we've we sell online and also we do commercial pollination and so we've kind of been able to diversify our income that away so we're not relying on just one thing? Do you think that's the key to your success is the fact that you've been so diversified or do you think it's maybe you've been in a little bit more creative. What what's the secret sauce? I guess well I don't know if there is a secret I've I think part of our success specifically jeff relate each other creatively and we can we kind of agree on the image. We want to put out and the like for example the simplicity of our logo. That's something we worked really hard on the name. True be We joked that it. It's successful because it rhymes with Soobee but I don't think that's why when we thought about the name we wanted it to reflect the authenticity of the product. And it's so important to buy raw honey that you know where it came from and so we felt like the word true with would be would kind of reflect that commitment to authenticity entity and the real deal and those are things he and I agree on and so I think if we didn't have the same perspective on on And the imagery want our business to project. It'll be way harder. I think one of the things that I find really cool about your business is the the different kinds of honey that you have and how you've you've made them into different products whether it's through. Maybe some chapstick nick or the whip tiny or you know talk a little bit about about. Yeah well that that's a really good example of diversification. You know people people have been selling honey for ever and yeah. Supposedly some money was found in a pharaoh's tomb of you years ago and it was still perfectly good to eat. Surani keeps forever ever. That's so that's so interesting in crystal is a little bit. Sometimes he will ask us. What's the shelf life on this? And we you say honey keeps forever how forever and that's amazing is one of the few foods that does but everyone else hunting and everyone has their local honey source source. People that eat a lot of hunting. They they wouldn't go to their local farmer's market and buy it from someone they know and we think that's very important because the sustainability of beekeeping is only driven by honey sales. So we also wanted to broaden our sales market outside of just the people that want our local honey and we love them but with kind of a market for awesome gourmet honey products. That would so we developed the whipped. Honey that's nothing new. We just made our own kind. Just it's just honey that's been whipped spreadable texture. One of them has cinnamon in it which is great for the holidays and then our newest one has lavender in it which is kind of fun but that kind of diversification vacation has allowed us to sort of break beyond the the boundaries of just Tennessee and we have our honey. Those gourmet type products in a few sort of boutique stores Oliver the country. So that's been kind of fun. I think you've brought up a really really good point of how great a lot of the products that are made local Our are four giving of gifts and were in December and yeah he's in and that and that's a that's a great a stocking stuffer or people are thinking about parties and I got to bring a hostess gift. What do I bring? That's not just the typical you know candle or or thing of lotion. I saw someone talking I. I saw a little thing on facebook the other day where people were discussing. What is the gift that you do not like getting? We're talking about Coffee Mug or everyone has so many gifts and so yes this. This is a great way to to have a gift that is unique in but also supports the people around you the people who are your neighbors. Yeah I think Tennessee. It has a fabulous supply of what I would call consumable gifts and I think for people that have everything or even that. Don't have everything it's nice to to be given something that you can eat or a handcrafted soap that's made in the area There's there's so many things in Tennessee that are fabulous holiday gifts and a lot of them you can find on Picton products or at your local farmers market. I know the Nashville Farmers Mark has tons of different things. There including the the batch store which which carries a lot of local products and this time of year. There are a lot of local shows that are happening where you can pick up handcrafted Tennessee yeah I think a Lotta Times people just go for what's the easiest may be or you know what can what can I can I shop. That's real fast and easy to get it over with but if you really want to put a lot of thought op behind it. The like you mentioned the pig Tennessee products directory can take some of that ease out a lot of places in including yourself so online fine that makes it a little bit easier. So you're still staying local but you're getting the ease of maybe online shopping. And so that's that's exciting as well you you know one of the things that I love about buying Tennessee products is also as a as a gift for people who don't live here in aren't exposed to that. I have a lot a lot of friends that are scattered all over the United States and to send them a little piece of Tennessee. NBA This is like almost like a little piece of me. This is your stand you know the local flavors that I love and Adore and I m used to and and so it's not just about you know unique gift for those who live around you and INDAC- INDAC- but outside of tennis. Oh absolutely and those are good opportunities to do that. Yeah well you know as part of My travels this year and talking with different people on agriculture is. We're asking the question why you know. Sometimes working in agriculture related businesses like you said difficult Even small businesses are you know are can take a lot of work so you know what keeps you going. What makes you show up every single day? Okay and and tend to the bees and what. You're why I think my why is maintaining something that I've created is important to me. Of course my family depends on me. So there's that ask. But also with some agricultural jobs including beekeeping. It's somewhat seasonal and Dan so for now. The B don't hibernate but they do sort of go dormant in in the fall and winter. So there's less care for them and fortunately for us that that's typically our biggest sale seasons so at least we're not doing everything all the time it kind of it kind of rotates throughout the year. It's nice to have some variety and but I but I definitely think that are wise that we like we talked about before we enjoy the creative process of putting something out there and the affirmation that we get when people when people buy head and there's every sale we may is important to us and an affirming that we've created something worth worth buying in worth with bring into your home. It's it's flattering when people buy our product. Yeah that's cool I never thought about that affirmation of every sales affirmation that I am headed in the right direction does this does mean something. I'm reading a book about no matter. What you do everything you put out into the world world is is your art whether you're a parent or every you know a a visual artist or if you if you're a farmer if you're a teacher teacher you know whatever you do if you see it as your art and put it out there like that you'll it kind of spins it? You know you see it not just as a job but it is something important for for you and for the people around you. What great? Well you know Laura I really appreciate you taking the time to to sit. Sit Down and talk with us How can people find you? If they're interested how can they maybe sample your product. Well we're have we have a website True behind you dot dot com. It's T. R. U.

Episode 136 Azure SQL Managed Instance

"<music> welcome to episode one hundred thirty six if the Microsoft Cloud I._T. Pro podcast recorded live July twenty fourth two thousand nine hundred nine. This is show about office three sixty five and Azure from the perspective of I._T. Pros and users where we discuss a topic or recent news and Howard he leads to you in today's this episode we go through some of the high level features of Azure sequel managed instance and how it compares to sequel in Azure. I asked against Azure sequel single angle and elastic databases then we get into some of the configurations you'll want attention to when bringing Asher sequel managed instance into your Environment Happy Radi. Why do we always record on rainy days in Florida? Is it rainy where you are because it rains every day in Florida but it's the sunshine state it is the humid- sunshine state and all that humidity means the moisture has to come out of the air at some point like today and yesterday and a and maybe a little bit tomorrow today before that pools almost overflowing well go do some cannibals I know except then I get one under my papers all roads its first first world problems. I suppose it's a vicious cycle. I tell you it is but it is a rainy Wednesday afternoon. Not a Friday morning. We're mixing up recording schedule. GotTa keep each other on her toes right something like that or we're just both so busy with our other real jobs that this is the only time we can do it.

So what topics should we sneak in today I think today we're GonNa talk about something as you're based which is which will be fun because we know how much you like to get into that space but you've been recently working with some clients around a not quite new but might be new to some people out there product in in the database as a service called sequel managed instance or Azure S._Q._L. Managing Censor Azure S._Q._L. Or as you're sequel am by whatever we want to call it today. I think have you seen it. Abbreviated is just as your sequel even though there's like different flavors of it it's like Microsoft really wants to push you into this azure sequel. Am I now or manage instance and I've been dealing with. I didn't even realize it had kinda snuck up and popped up out there until I started working with this client about it and there was like <hes> this is rather interesting so we're going to run like a sequel as slash as hat because well it's azure sequel while you may have dealt with like azure sequel databases in the past this azure sequel managed incidences almost more more like managing measure says but not quite it's kind of somewhere in the Middle Tennessee from what I've seen in how it's worked and things you need to think about well. Let's Kinda. Dial that one back a little bit and maybe kind of break down your options that are out there because it gets really confusing I think with the introduction of this product and where it sits and what it potentially looks like so if you think about just needing to run sequel server so we're talking Microsoft Sequel Server M._S. S._Q._L. In Asia today you effectively have two options so do you want to be in an infrastructure service or are do you want to be in a platform service so do you want to own the database instances in the underlying operating system and updates and banishment into the sequel engine itself so go into infrastructure as a service and run sequel server on your virtual machines or do you want to use databases of service and have Microsoft run that sequel engine for you and maintain the underlying O._S. Patching and things like that out along the way so I think everybody if you've done M._S. S._Q._L. You're pretty familiar with sequel server. You've got that all right. I know how to run sequel server on a virtual machine so one one of the things that happened was Microsoft came and said well now we have this platform service called Azure sequel database and as your sequel database for a long time was a a sequel like product so it does not feature one hundred percent compatibility with on premises sequel server. There are just features features that are available to you. It has a different burst model for compute all those kinds of things and when you think about going to the cloud one of the interesting things that starts to happen is you really look to optimize and one of the best places to optimize get yourself out of managing things like operating systems and underlying system patches but you couldn't do that with sequel land because lots of us have databases that leverage features in sequel server that we're not compatible with Azure S._Q._L. So Microsoft's sauce answer to that was let's keep as your sequel database but what's come out with a new offering and a new skew within that product and they call that managed incense or am I so am I is a unit of compute that we kind of purchases customers eat is still still a database as a service so there's no windows server or I to R._T._p. Onto and manage somebody else's still managing O._S. Patching and kind of database zengin patching and things like that but it is about as close as you can get like Microsoft frames it up as near one hundred percent compatibility so it's it's close like it's a lot closer than Azure S._Q._L. Databases manage instance too. I -as sequel than you traditionally get to in the past. Now you have this option as a customer to potentially go out and say hey I'd love to do database as a service and go ahead and have access to that. What do you got out there for me? Well I can do you single database like do something like elastic pool. Maybe if my database doesn't need those features of on Prem Sequel Server that aren't compatible with that or now now we can go into managed instance have some dedicated managed compute around that and I think one of the reasons this is kind of a good one to get into now is when you go into the Azure Portal for the longest time when you went into the create experience you just go to the portal you go create any resource and you say hey. I'd like to create a sequel database for a long time that option the default was always gonna come back with something like one of those azure sequel databases either a single database earn elastic pool so it was kind of put you into this different compute model. You know this this shared compute model now they've started to do is they've started actually default to you managed instance so to some more dedicated compute where you're potentially leveraging pricing based on on V. Kors or other kind of per hour per second billing pulling depending on the service that you land in so I think a lot of customers are just maybe going to end up here just by accident. Sometimes it's interesting because this one does tend to A. B. I don't even know that a little bit more expensive. I think it's quite a bit more expensive than the original database model because like you said this is there's a lot closer to more that sequel you might be licensing for V Corps. It's even close enough to that model that if you do have existing existing sequel servers you can use some of that hybrid sequel licensing benefit to take your unprepared sequel licenses apply them to this. This new azure sequel managed instance good discount on your managed instance with that hybrid licensing model for on Prem Sequel Server so it's and that's kind of where I feel like it. It's definitely still database as a service but it's drawing that really fine line between us. The only thing that makes it not is is like you said you don't don't have to manage manage patching updates all of that but everything else feels like just a standard sequel server very similar because you can hook up to it with Sequel Sequel Server Management Studio and we'll talk about this one a little bit too it sits as a unit of compute it sits on your virtual networks so he can communicate directly directly with other infrastructure virtual machines so if you're looking to make that transition right effectively like re host to go ahead and get workloads in and potentially optimize awesome you might have some options there so just to kind of talk through pricing yet. It is a little bit more. There's multiple generations of this service and multiple service years. Here's within there as well so there's Jen four's there's Jen fives. You're picking up a V. Cores along the way so you're actually paying a per hour price to to go ahead and lift some of these things in just give you a sense so in U._S.'s to a four V Corps with twenty gigs of Ram which includes thirty thirty two gigs of storage of consumption a month is going to run you about seven hundred and thirty dollars plus or minus a little bit depending on your discounts and and where you sit and what's going on so you might look at that and say like Hus- seven hundred and thirty bucks is kind of expensive to run a sequel server well depending on how big your instances are what you're already paying paying for licensing and everything else there you could find that you're very well paying a little bit more because you've probably got two sequel servers and it always on availability group so you know where you had one server four hundred bucks a month. You've still got to of running so you're paying eight hundred already. Close Your licensing and all the other things that come into play there so I think it makes it a little a bit more difficult to kind of rationalize where you go and where you're going to figure out which service you land along the way I think one of the things with managed with the managed instance that I've I found is you tend to land in there. If you want some of the higher performance because you also find certain things that there's actually support for for now with the managed instance that you couldn't typically get with the previous as your sequel so I know some of the new preview features is you you can actually use managed instance now for sure point two thousand sixteen point two thousand nineteen dynamics three sixty five business central some of those services services that maybe had a little bit more stringent requirements tend to be supported and managed instance because like you said now you're actually buying said amounts of storage V. Cores memory. Sorry you're buying more that C._P._U. Or as type performance with your managed sequel server rather than just kind honest database sitting out here on this server where I think before you licensed like I think it was which was some unit of measurement consumption distributed transaction unit. It is a combination of ISO transactions C._P._U. Memory it's it's kind of like a weird magical number. It's kind of like so how do you calculate that and I'm like <hes> as far as I know you just Kinda start spinning stuff up see how it performs forms and figuring out if you need more or less so there is a calculator and there are there is telemetry that you can pull off your existing on premises sequel instances offenses if you need to looking at things like maybe disk latency throughput understanding connections that are coming into the server but it is definitely not an exact science to get into DC US and then the other thing you've got to consider there is do you do single databases were do these things called elastic pools or e._d._U.'s elastic which get into this other burst of all compute model and all these other things so sequel. Am I is a little bit easier to wrap your head around because it's almost like ions else but not quite so it is pretty warm fuzzy uncomfortable yeah so some of the other things we mentioned that we wanted to get into was because this is a little bit more and you had mentioned already ready Venus some nats connected to this. There's a bunch of things from that as hat type perspective. I love that you want to think about if you're GonNa go with this managed instance route around how you architecture network because well it is still that the database as a service you're still essentially having a sequel server out there that you need to connect to it has all the documentation argumentation has set and points ports to have opened like you said this is actually required that it has a dedicated some net you you have a network security group for it. You have your user defined routes. You have divas you have Venus you have all of those network requirements that you have to have for the Sequel Managed First Instance because it connects right up to one of those v Nets in your Asher infrastructure as a sequel server with with its own I._p. Address and all those network requirements around yeah. There's a frame managed service that sits so close to you from a compute perspective. There's a lot that you need to they. Potentially need to think about there and how that comes into your environment. How are we going to like? You said maybe manage routing what's up net is that going to sit on what are considerations for network security groups with some of that inbound outbound port and protocol filtering like what does that truly liquid for me and can I even go to this service from a high level before you get start getting into some of the nuance or complexity of it like does it support my coalitions ends or my general features sequel server that I actually might need a service like this yeah as I._T. Professionals the cloud era sometimes that feels like we don't speak the same language as the rest of the organization so when stakeholders from finance or other departments start asking about a specific Pacific project or teams as your costs they don't always realize how much work is involved in obtaining that information sifting through cluttered C._S._v.'s and a complex massive meditate data in order to create custom views and reports. It's a real headache on top of helping you understand in reduce your organization's overall as your spend share arrogate overcast. Lets you group resources into meaningful cost tops and map them to real world business scenarios this way you can track costs in the way that makes most sense with your corporate structure whether it's by product business unit team or otherwise it's a flexible intuitive and business friendly way of tracking azure infrastructure structure costs and it's only available in share gate overcast find out more on share gate dot com slash I._T. Pro some of those things to start thinking about like you said some of that and then from that Vena perspective some net size Microsoft does a a really good job of walking you through some of this and we'll put links to all these articles around connectivity again what ports you have to have open. There's mandatory inbound security rules outbound security rules. There are a lot of user defined routes that have to be set up and I'm thinking about the coalition like you said all of that but then even the some nuts and the networking perspective so Microsoft has a couple of different documents out there well. There's three different links that that you can kind of look at one of them is just starting out and figuring out that some net the networking size. This isn't your typical throw a server out there and the and dividend I._p. Address in connect to it because you're dealing with all those v Nets and some nets if you go into this article and you start looking at <hes> some net size Microsoft tells you right off the Bat. It's that as your uses five I._p. Addresses in the some net for its own needs each general purpose instance needs to addresses each business. Critical instance needs four addresses so you're looking at some nets right off. The Bat of Nineteen Ish I._P. He addresses if you WANNA have three general purpose to business critical managed instances on the same some net the number of I._p. Addresses adds up really quick. Do you need to do some planning planning upfront in terms of what does these some nets and Venus up in Azure look like in what are all these applications that are going to connect US managed first instance. How are they going to work where they going to sit because there's also some requirements there and even do if I already have these applications up there sir? Can I get a managed instance to connect to my existing some nets or do I have to kind of re architect all of this. There's a lot of planning that really should go into this whole whole process just just a little bit just to touch. There's impacts there. There's a bunch of impacts that are potentially going to hate you even outside side of planning on the Ayrshire side see you mentioned you know connectivity back to you other resources so what if you have hybrid connectivity and you need to connect on on Prem and come through your express route while okay that means that you need to potentially you need to be in that Vena that's already associated with that express route gateway and you you know you need to have all that and there are some limitations here right like we so there are things that don't work today in this service you know they're on the road map but they're just not there today so let's say you know if you're an enterprise because let's be honest. It's GONNA be like enterprise companies that are going to be more looking features like this. They're going to come in and they're probably we're going to have richer networking constructs in place like hub-and-spoke networks so that means they have vinet peers routing and all sorts of other things in place already well well. You're manage instance. You can't traverse vinet peers with like it. Just doesn't work that way today. That's that's a major consideration for you and what I found was. It's like global vinet peers so if you do them in the same networks so you can do your whole wien appearing in the same region but then everything has to be an Easter U._S. something in East U._S. US too in the U._S. And you try to pure those v Nets and your sequel managed instances neither connector something has to connect to your sequel managed Maged Instance. You're just going to be out of luck at this point in time which is good distinction so yes global vinet peers but again we're back to those enterprise scenarios where typically you do run on in multiple regions because downtime is something you want to avoid so. What does that look like for you? How do you choose to do replication all these other things like there's lots of not it can't be done with this service but it can only be done if you truly recognize how the service works? You've read the documentation and let's be honest because it's still new enough. You've played around with it a little bit and learned about some of the things that maybe even are not documented out there and another one of these that I found to when you start looking at this the whole custom d._n._S. which makes sense right. If you are a large again large enterprise corporation you have your own DNA server all your own entries and you want managed instance to be able to use your custody server to resolve stuff. Maybe it's internally if running hybrid. Maybe it's other services you have running externally. There is a whole set of instructions around accustomed D._N._S. server in this one. They changed so so seven days ago and I don't know if you had a chance to look at this or if you have any idea why but there was a change to the documentation so if you looked at it eight eight days ago nine days ago it had an I._p. Address that you were required to have in your custom D._N._S. For proper resolution of your managed finished instance otherwise if you took this out your managed instance could actually fail and there would be no way to get it back so it was like this I._p. Address needs to be in custody in ECE. If you're going to switch the hat vinet that your managed instances connected to it at some nut that you managed instances connected to if you're going to set that with custody and s make make sure this I._p. Is In there that got pulled out of the documentation. The documentation to me wasn't clear why it's not in there anymore so we can can put a link to the hub commit where the documentation was changed. There's also some articles out there and stack overflow where people were talking about the Custom Custom D._N._S. that has the I._p. Address and then the link to the new documentation and again. I'm not sure why this I._p. Address scout removed. It doesn't really say if it was no longer requirement or if the change something around Custom D._N._S. I just know eight days ago. It absolutely had to be there seven days ago all of a sudden it just kind it does appeared while you're moving at the speed of the cloud. Yeah that's why you know. UPDATES are made and all sorts of things like that happen anthem when it comes to email outlook and office three sixty five are fantastic but sometimes there are things you'd like to do that are implemented. sperry very software creates outlook add INS office three sixty five services that fill in these gaps for instance there are outlook Adams to automatically print emails and and or attachments save emails P._D._F. Send out recurring emails or how about a warning when you're going to do a reply to all instead of a normal reply find these and and many more email productivity solutions get started today by visiting W._W._w. Dot sperry software dot com slash cloud I._T. So there's some links but that is one thing to take note of and going through again. This documentation Microsoft says if you're going to switch to Custom D._N._R.'s make sure you switch all these nets some nets everything that accustomed d-mass before provisioning your managed instance as a best practice just going back back into a lot of those things that you really need to think about. Make sure you go look through this documentation. If you're going to do the manage instances the other one I ran across with my client was custom D._N._S. resolution and actually being able to resolve to an unprejudiced D._N._S. Server so getting that managed instance because again. We're talking about database as a service here getting net to go look at an internal D._N._S. and resolve to servers on Prem. I have been unable to get that to work art. There's some unofficial documentation again. I think this was out on stack overflow that I found this. We may be able to post it in our notes where her people were saying. Essentially that on premises name Resolution for D._N._S. is now possible so if you want to do something like set up a link sequel server server or reach from your managed instance and resolved to an I._p. Address of an end from server using the is just not going to be possible. You're going to have to to do it by I._p. Address because Diaz resolution just isn't possible right now again. I haven't seen anything official for Microsoft but based on what I've seen in various discussion forums what I experienced. My client is that does tend to be true just based on my experience with it as a managing or to compute it needs just to pull from the vinet configuration so if that D._N._S. servers and part of the Veena configuration. It's never going to be able to find it in the first place. There's all sorts. It's a little weird things that are going to happen on the way there and then like you said you got to think about how baked is your environment before you put something like this in like has it already come out of the Oven Leonard just cooling on top of it because if you're still in process with some of this and you haven't figured out where you're D._N._S. Servers are going to live where they're gonNA sit how they're gonNA come in. How's it going to be integrated with Avena well as managing compute like you can't just go and update the D._N._S. servers on your Vena and everything magically picks it up within ten seconds? It's affectively got a reboot on the back end. Go through some type of refresh rate so either D._H._C._p. Lease needs to go away or you know. Just something needs to happen. In there or platform at form update comes through and effectively the servers that host your service get rebooted so they come back when new I._P.'s new resolution and all that but I think networking with this service in particular is a bit of a weird one threads. It's got a little bit more going on from a moving pieces side of things then maybe some of the other manage compute services where we compare maybe like Azure with APPS APP service environment. This one just got more going on into weird one right because it does like a lot of times it will end up creating its own some net within within a v. net. There are some ways you can Kinda prepa some net put this managed in stints into it but going back to what you said about. If do you have a really dynamic moving kind of figuring all this out environment. This can get really messy really fast and that's what I ran into with one of my clients they had managed edged instance. They had a bunch of finance. They had a son that they had a bunch of regions spun up. They had their on prem servers. They did a V._P._N. Connection to do hybrid and then and all of a sudden they actually found out all the stuff doesn't talk to her managed instance because of how we are detected knit ended up being lake re some netting domains ends reappearing servers moving v._M.'s between regions it was not just a straightforward process to get everything talking talking to each other because of a lot of these different requirements and how that managed instances structured as kind of that half as half database as a service type service. It's a bit of a beast and I think said for this one particularly. It's GonNa cost you a little bit to run it but if you think you're GONNA use it. This is one that you don't just read the documentation and hope the documentation is going to be right for this is one that you turn it on you. Play with it yourself and you get hands on with it and make sure that you're comfortable absolutely so go read that I mutation make sure you're aware of this especially like you said because this is going to be the new default or if this isn't something you want be be aware that this is the new default you may have to switch to go back to come to that old database as a service model rather than this database managed instance as the service type model. It's a little bit of a weird one and one of the things that happened here too. Is We talked about cost a little bit so this did used to be a lot more expensive Microsoft is starting to bring in some of that down with lower core counts and things like that so you can get into Dev tests pricing scenarios and some other things so if you're looking to maybe get your developers hands on with it or you're year ninety pro and he just want to play with it. A semi lower cost along the way like really kick the tires but not a production link scenario. You might have some options there to what is the lowest price now. I haven't even looked at a little bit. I would have to pull it up myself. They just had some stuff that they announced about Dev test pricing and some of that got oh here we go. I found it. Maybe this is what happens to record a podcast and the flying you just kind of go in and start looking at it as you go and of course it's all per hour. I'm not gonNA take the time to figure figured out reserved license. One year reserved three years reserved so it looks like you can also reserved served instances with these two or reserved instance type. It's like three years reserved with azure hybrid benefit so there are a whole bunch launch of more of those as tight praising calculations that come in when you start looking at this yeah figure out your price in that case you'll have to go into the pricing calculator regulator and play around with it. It's effectively someplace up to a fifty five percent discount per hour on the service along the way but you've got to go ahead Heddon and see what that looks like so they have had this for Dev test accounts and pay accounts and things like that but specifically what they did was they actually opened up for individual subscribers subscribers as well. If you're just visual studio subscriber and now you have the opportunity to potentially get out there and play with that product a little bit. I did see that announcement that now you can do those M._S._G. Credit Subscriptions Yeah now you're kind of covered across the board to at least try it out and and see if it's something that you're going to do certainly I would say if you are in kind of more the database administrator space or the developments face and you're not as familiar with infrastructure. Go Buy your favorite I._T. Pro Cookie donate a cup of coffee. Get them a glass water whatever it is you know see if you can't pick their brain a little bit about some ways to think about setting this up so you don't immediately fail on network security groups and some of the Venus spread and things like that. Did you really just say bring your not pro glass of water and he'll tell you all the kid well. I was going to bring bring them a beer but not everybody drinks alcohol so because it's pro drinks water either I am trying to make sure here that we're inclusive or how about beverage just a beverage beverage a libation yeah there we go there now. We've we've gotten that all straightened out all all right well would that hopefully that gave a love you guys that are listening to good understanding of Azure sequel managed instance or as an understanding as you can get there again. There's a lot there will include a bunch of those links to the documents in the show notes so go check those out and just without we'll talk to you next leaks got all right sounds good. Thanks all right thank you. If you enjoyed the podcast go leave us a five star rating and I tunes and helps to get the word out so more it pros can learn about office three sixty five and Azure.

"Should I Follow My Dreams Or Stay In The Career I Know?"

"Thanks for listening to the podcast of the Ken Coleman. Show you can catch the show live every weekday from twelve to one eastern on Youtube and one to two eastern on. Sirius. Xm Andrew Local radio station. If you'd like to ask me a question, you can talk to me live any weekday from twelve to two eastern by calling eight, four, four, seven, four, seven, two, five, seven, seven. Setting the pace on the pursuit of happiness this the Ken Coleman show where you discover what you were born to do and how to make it happen. Now. Helping you get on stock and on the path to your dream job Ken. Coleman. Coming to you live from Ramsey studios in Nashville, you are joining a conversation about who you are. What you were created to do where you WANNA do it. And how you can get there it is about your purpose you were created to fill a unique role you are needed, and so that means you must do it that is. The foundational belief here on the Ken Coleman show at. So you're quickly understanding this is a different kind of talk radio. We're not talking politics. We're talking purpose. And you've got one. Now, if you know what it is. You don't to get there the shows for you if you don't know what it is. This shows for you get some ideas. which are trying to narrow it down. This show is for you eight, four, four, seven, four, seven, two, five, seven, seven is the number to jump in eight, four, four, seven, four, seven, two, five, seven, seven. Now we're GONNA start today show off with the absolute best call we ever do on the program in it is our dream scream or somebody has stepped into that dream job and they're going to share their story with us. This is so exciting we go to Kyle Lua Hawaii where Allie joins US allier on the Ken Coleman show. I can allow employees yes. A how are you? I'm great. How are you? Well, I. AM living the dream, but I'll be honest I'd like to be hanging out there doing this call and person but you know we're we'll make the best of it in middle Tennessee. So this is really exciting. I want to start with what were you doing? Previously. To deciding all right I gotTA. FIGURE OUT THE DREAM? And I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa Change Gears, and go after this. What were you doing? So actually I the job that I have now is actually the same job that I had. Then I was just very toxic work environment. And and I think the difference is excuse me I. Wasn't my first Rodeo. I. I've been in toxic workplaces and this is just okay. I've had enough I am. Looking I am getting out of here and so basically, the same job that I had back then is the same job that I have now just in a different place So you were in the right role, but in the wrong place. Yes exactly. Wow. You know it's interesting because you know I've said before many times on the program that you can. You can be doing what you love to do and what you really good at and and creating results that matter you. But if you're in a toxic environment, so you can be in that sweet spot, but if you're in a toxic environment. You don't WanNa show up and that was you. So. So it became a nightmare you are in a nightmare and all you did was change locations. Now you're in a dream. Exactly, I want you to talk about. So this is an interesting. So this is really not about the discovery process for you getting clear, and then trying to figure out how to get the dishes really about you going enough is enough. Why do you think the? Why do you think that you or other people? Tend to put up with toxicity for a while some for a long time. For me living in her Hawaii my mortgage is very big. I have no choice. I couldn't just walk away from my job and say, okay, screw you guys I can't do this anymore I pay my bills my mortgage and say, okay, I, just have to stick it out. You know making lemonade with lemons just drink the lemonade and that's exactly what I did and it took me a year and a half to find another job. Okay. So for you it was you didn't have a financial choice I guess you could have sold. But you decided I want to stay here. I'm going to stick it out and then you found a place of the good culture. How did you make sure? that it was a healthy culture because we hear this all the time Kim how do I find out? How do I realize if I'm going from one toxic culture to a healthy culture? What did you do to verify? Well I. Use your proximity principle I read your book. I was listening to your podcasts and I was networking. I put it out there. The community that I work in is very small. So I, put it out there to all my friends and contacts. In the industry that I'm looking please help me get outta here. So when this opportunity came up with a job, I'm in now I have a friend that works there. So I I, but I made sure. Is there any drama there? Is there anything I need to know about? Are there any toxic people he just laughed at me said, no, this is the best place I've ever worked with like. Okay I'm in. A love it, and what is it been like to step from talks ity into healthy? Oh it's wonderful. So the place I was at before micro managers, kingdom builders all out for themselves I come into this place. My boss literally said to me, and by the way I started right in Kuwait started in March one in. Hawaii. Went into lockdown. and My boss told me. You know what? You take care of yourself and your Family First Commission is second you guys. Raise me up. I'm I'm at the bottom of the pyramid. I'm like an upside down pyramid. You guys are at the top. So that's what. I put you I and I've never had a boss told me that something like this is a. Real. I have to pinch myself and like I might dreamy. Yeah sure. So yes. It's. It's amazing. What would you say to somebody who's listening right now and they're in a toxic environment and they just feel like they're trapped because of their financial. Needs just like you were and they go. It took you a year and a half alley. Really isn't worth it what would you say? It was definitely worth it. It was not easy, but it was definitely worth it. So you just have. You have to keep a positive attitude. That's what I have to do is hard as it was I just have to keep a positive attitude knowing that something will come up soon. It's not seen as something will come up eventually. That's right. He was a year and a half. And half for be yeah boy it's worth. Isn't it? It was way worth it. All right before we have you do your dream scream. I want you to describe. The type of feeling you had on a Monday morning when you're in the toxic environment. Oh i. Just know that I was I was so bathroom. So actually I suffer from PTSD all. These people were triggering my ptsd big time. So I was angry I would roll into work not just not a Monday every day rolling to work angry bullish rage. I would drive to work and I'll get road rage just thinking about going to work, and then I'd be rolling to work I was so mad already when I walked in the door. So. What's The contrast? What's a Monday morning drive like for you now? Honestly, we haven't been doing a whole lot of driving because, of course. Of course, but the emotions are very different now aren't they? Yes I believe God used coded to help me heal through this because I've been mostly teleworking. I think just being at home and calm and I have a great coworkers now. So if I do have to go in and just driving I, I'm excited because I to work with these people it's a mission My can't talk about it but it's a great mission that we have and it's it's fun. Alright. It is time all the way from. Hawaii Alley is now out of toxicity in in the sweet spot in a wonderful culture count down from three I wanNA hear your dream scream alley, take it away. Three two, one I'm living the dream. It is. See is living the dream in the workplace and might we say in her place as well Kyle Hawaii not an awful place to hang out every day we should go on location Madison. Let's look into that shelly can we not go do a couple of weeks of live shows in Hawaii? You look into that I'll start looking for my. Floral shirts they'll move. This is the Ken Coleman show.

That's Ken Coleman Dot Com. Welcome back. This is the Ken Coleman Show where we help men and women get clear on the age old question. What should I do with my life? One call at a time We're going to walk you through it and eventually some if you're going to go I, need to call and you can we're here Eight four, four, seven, four, seven, two, five, seven, seven, four, four. Seven four, seven, two, five, seven, seven. Let's go to Bayden who joins us in Los Angeles California Bayden. You're on the Ken Coleman show. And things taking my call, you bet how can help Yes situation Of shoot I stay or should I go with my current employer I enjoy working there has good benefits. has less pay. And I just recently got a job offer with the state hats. A better benefits more pay in known cost of living in California. a jump directly to it. But you might see -Tuation? My current employer's also. with opt to pay for my college So years, they'll take on the responsibilities for that. So I'm thinking, should I stay two years college then move on or go and chase more money. Let's figure out which one of these things actually gets. US. Further down the path that you WANNA be on, we can't just get. Attracted to better pay or they're going to pay for my college. So of the two options which one allows you or actually makes you move up the ladder? The ladder you WANNA be on move. You WanNa be on moving up the ladder. It's actually like the the second job offer currently way I am now there's not much of a of movement mortgage just remove you just change departments other than going up right I mean that's one of my concerns too as well. Yeah. How much more money will you be making in this? B.. Option B. You looking at at least twenty thousand yelling you. Know Man? This is an easy decision. Before I tell you my decision, what was you? which way were you leaning before? We got on the phone together full got on the phone honestly the the more pace sound really good. But personally I just WANNA go ahead and in. College and follow them the Dave Ramsey clan and knowing that. I'm trying to go to college debt free that option has really been sticking with me. Okay. So All interesting well, I'm all be I'm going to tell you why I think you take the more money and the better benefits and you cash flow your way through college. You don't need a dead end job to pay for your college because I haven't heard you tell me why you need to go finish two years of college. What's that have to do with the dream? What are you haven't told me that. So if college is the only way If that additional two years is the only way to get you where you wanna go or the best way. Then then I'm willing to change my mind help me understand why do we need that college degree? Where are you going? What's the? What's the dream? dream is just Well College Pretty Much I've always had. Like a Ingram since I was a kid you know finish college as you get better opportunities, better options and in my current situation I just feel you know maybe just need to get that degree you know to really open up my. Instead of still going you know, okay. Here's the deal. Here's the deal yet, and I'm not I'm on your side. I'm trying to help you make the right decision the right decisions for you to take the better job. That pays you more money and better benefits and then casual your way through college win. You know what college you need to take I. Don't think you know what the dream is yet, and there's nothing wrong with that but until you can prove to me. That college is the only way or the best way to get where you want to go. Then this is just about you making a checking off something that's important you on your list and I'm for that Bayden I'm fine with that. If college matters to you, you just say I want a degree whether or not. It helps me get to a career that I love I'm not gonNA fight you over that I. Don't know that you need it. There's a whole lot of people letter successful and even more and more more and more and more successful careers that don't require a college degree. But my point is. The more take the extra pay and the better benefits, and then be patient and cash all your way through college whose if you take the current job offer, are you stay where you are? You're completely limited. And so you're going to be there for two more years. And the only reason you're there is because they're paying for your tuition. But the trade off is you're not making more money. Versus you're making more money and you could save up. And not rush on the two years of college because you've got a good job. And you casual your way through and do it online maybe save some money. it's your decision. You call me because you want to know what I think and now I've told you does that make sense. You got any questions about why said what? You definitely doesn't make sense I. Mean I was just looking at in your you hit the nail on the head when you know college. Okay important. But as far it's not GONNA lead into that dream and I like having the back of my mind but just having a degree that kind of that's what's resonating with me get the job offer. Yeah. Most definitely year be able to cash flow my way through college I really never thought about the long-term I'm just looking at Khakis go two years, finish show versus take time. See. Bayden it's my job to think on your behalf. Term, I'm on team Bayden. So, whatever bathe his dream is that's where I'm at and I don't see why this two year this two extra years of college and we'll see where it so important I don't know if this will help you not and it occurs to me I don't tell a lot of people all the time not ashamed of it. I'll shout from the mountaintops about ready to I. Don't have my college degree Bayden is that make any difference you at all? Only assault. You're still my advice and my show still has some significance with you. Definitely, yes. Reached out. Yeah I know brother. Boom. Here's my point. Why do we want to agree and again? Folks, if you like Bayden in the sense of accomplishment, no one in your family's had one or maybe you're one of the few and it's a sense of accomplishment do that's freaking awesome. Go get it but not at your own expense. And what I mean by that is. Don't turn down a great promotion. In Your Life. Because somebody else is GONNA pay the bill I'd rather you hold off a year stack that money do some online stuff if you want to accomplish the degree great but what I really care about is where does Bayden won't be in twenty years and if college doesn't make that happen faster or better let's be okay this isn't just Bayden folks parents listen to me let's be okay going. You don't have to go to school. You don't have to go to school. All right so I told the Youtube audience this. So this is just a little caveat because I'm about ready to get fired up. My voice may crack. couple of people ask me this morning Oh walked in sort of talking to me. Okay. Yeah. He got the Cova de you got some allergies what's going? That a football game last night my son's city game and was yelling a lot until the third quarter we had a big comeback was very exciting. It was not yelling at the refs. I have many witnesses of this. This was all positive yelling. But as a result, a little scratchy today. All right. So now about ready to get fired up of the voice cracks. y'All just deal with it. Su, super important folks and I don't say this enough. So here comes. Our culture. Has Made College a right of passage to success and I'm telling you right now. For more. For most industries that is a marketing lie. Now I'm really GonNa Hack, some. People. Off. Milk does a body. Good. This is what I grew up hearing. Turns out it doesn't. But the milk farmers who I'm for. Who are trying to make a living got together with some marketers and they said, let's come up with slogan does a body good if we say it people think that milk does a body. Good. So. We all started drinking milk. It doesn't do your body. Good. Oh here, come the emails now, but here's my point college in the fifties were coming out of world. War Two hey, higher education's a new thing that sounds pretty cool as so our entire. Culture bought a marketing slogan that Said Work Smart not hard and it basically said if you go to college you're smart. If you don't you go work in the trades, you're not smart and that is a big bunch of Horse you-know-what. Parents wake up if college isn't the only way or the best way get over yourself and free your kid. This is the Ken Coleman show. London.

So love for you to be aware of that, eight, four, four, seven, four, seven, two, five, seven, seven is the number Marie joins us now in New Orleans Louisiana Marie on the Ken. Coleman show. An. Hey. Thank you taking my call. Sure Maria you dry down there. Did you guys get hit hard? In the particular area I'm and I'm actually dry and fine. Oh, that's a good news. Good to hear. How can I help today? Facing layoff recently, and I'm trying to figure out if I should be trying to pursue my June. Or if I should take all the work experience but have engines get fast track degree into a local. A local business here I have about five years of gas Fan. And a local community college can give me credit for all of that and pretty much give me an accelerated associate's degree and plant safety Ni- L. that'll be making income that I wanna make or the income that I was making. But it's not what I want to be doing. Okay. I'm thinking I'm going to have to get out of that are doing what I WANNA do. Anyway. Right. So I like where this is going. So a couple of quick questions here if you get that fast track thing and so now you're ready to get a much better paying job. How much more money will you be making? I'm sorry. Okay so when you get fast tracked now you're available to to get a much higher paying job. How much more money will you be making in your now? Have well, right now I'm laid off. So okay I misunderstood that I I did not catch that you were you broke up a little bit at the start of the call so that that explains what I miss. So you I thought you said you. I thought you said you were facing layoff. You actually got laid off. So I'm sorry now I'm with you but here's my point. I think it's both. Because I think it's You've told me what the dream is yet, but I'm guessing it's GonNa take a while to get to the dream yes or no? Yeah Okay what's the dream and what's the path to the dream? So I have sketches of parents and products that help like parents of young children. I have to under three years old and I sketch. A whole bunch of things that I think is a really helped me and somebody else sure I. Just don't know how to make those products even bring him to a motorcade. Got It. Okay. So now I'm absolutely positively. Telling you that you need to go ahead and take that option with all that experience you've got fast track that associates get the really good paying job because it's the money you want to be making right Yeah and it's going to change your life right. Now. One thing is, is that AH give up time and it's not in the nicer environment I mean it's it's a power plant I get it, but here's the deal. If you need a solid day job because this dream job is a lot like what I'm went after, which is radio, and so you're a product creator. So you're really a content creator in the content will be distributed to parents. Right and via an actual products of books videos, whatever you're going to end up doing that's GonNa take a while to get going I don't think it's going to take fifteen years, but you're going to have to learn a lot. You're going to have to try some things you're going to have to make a lot of connections to get that off the ground. So we re to be stable and I don't really care that you're in a nasty Yucky plant. Because, that's the day job and it's taking care of you and those Kiddos. And it setting you up for the future. So. Yeah. I think it's both. What's great is you taking this opportunity to get a really good day job is going to keep going until you can make the dream job happen and here's here's what I mean by happen. I would love to see you in a year or two to just put out. Maybe six to twelve months. Yeah. Maybe six months Pinot quickly, you can move on this. Put out a test version of one of the resources. So let's say it's helping your child Avoid media and be creative. I'm making all this up this terrible idea but you get my point right and so it's like for parents toddlers you know and so you've got a book and maybe some video teacher whatever. But just do that in between your social media. Your friends, your family acquaintances, church relationships just think your entire power. You begin to offer this stuff on a local level and you test it unless you see if people really love it. So that doesn't take a ton of money. Right and you're not, and by the way that's not going to support you but we don't need it to support you. We're just GONNA, launch it on the side. So that's why wants you to to do this makes sense. because. Here's the deal a stable Marie. is a happy Marie. Has Me happier comb and a happy Marie can create butter. But of Murray's worried about taking care of the kids and worried about where she's at in life. And how she's going to provide all these things. You'RE NOT GONNA be able to create great materials. It's impossible. I'm proud of you Murray I. Really Am Proud of you what a great great opportunity. This is good on you go Marie go I'm so so happy for you. So take that. Hey, make that phone call today. Say I'm in Simi, the credits now okay. Okay. All right. Marie, I'm proud of you stay safe down there. you're in one of the great cities in. America. You know Baba look at it that every time I see New Orleans pop up on the screen I started thinking Yays Madison. Yeah. Well, she made a good face are not good for you, but they're good. Good good mug goodness at powder sugar taste it right now. Fantastic stuff, eight, four, four, seven, four, seven. Two Five, seven seven, go to Doug who joins us in Ontario Canada. Doug you're on the Ken Coleman show. Afternoon. I'm living the dream. How can I help? I've been there. For. Seven years now. my life has changed to a point where I'm looking between doing local and taking a pay cut or trying to find something different to do completely. Spin career. What what is driving this? Is it the need to be stable and be around family get off the road or is your heart going? There's something that we've been wondering about for a while we'd like to get you out of the truck and go after the dream what's driving this? Little bit of both actually we're now. So what's that dream? What's that thing that you're nervous about today maybe you're not even crazy clear on how to get there. But you thought about it enough that you could at least give me a short description. What is it? What would be the dream? This to be. Stable enough to. The way to work anymore and I get that. But that's what we all were I'm talking about what's the work? What's the work that if I gave you tomorrow you'd go. Are you serious Ken? I go? Yeah. Yeah. Duck. There's the work you know you can. Still. That's for sure. Oh, so you want to be driving you like being. Yeah. All right. So if you like to be home more now, I get it. So if you take this local driving Gig, what kind of a pay cut is it? They were from ten to twenty grand a year I. So then let me tell you what the simple answer is. Now, it's simple on paper, but you're going to have to get after it and figure it out. Okay. But the simple answer is this doug. You need to figure out a way to come back and drive locally, and if initially you gotTa Take Twenty Thousand Dollar Pay Ten to twenty. Then you gotta come up with a second job or or cut expenses so that your home more and you can make that sacrifice works you may have to drive the truck you're in now for a little while longer to save up or stay in the truck that you're in now and find better local driving gig maybe you haven't looked at all of the local driving gigs. Are there major companies in Ontario that you could dry four even though it's local it's a major company and a good pay good benefits. That's your homework assignment, but the solution is there. You know what you WANNA do figure out how you can do it. This is the Ken Coleman show. Welcome back. This is the Ken. Coleman show. So excited to have you join us. You matter. Tremendously, because you were created to contribute. Your God given talent. Through. The work that you enjoy engaging in. And that Is How you figure out. Oh, see this this this talent that I have in this work that I enjoy creates a result. and. I got to figure out what are the results that matter really deeply to me and I put them all together. So the intersection of talent passion emission. That's where your sweet spot is and people look at you and go. You were born for this. So that's what we're here to help. You figure out because once you figure that out, you'll see there are multiple jobs and multiple career paths multiple ways to do that. It's not just this one silver bullet. That's what locks a Lotta people up how in the World Kim I supposed to just pick that one job well, good news. You don't have to do it that way they're multiple aging about this. Eight four, four, seven, four, seven, two, five, seven, seven. Let's go to tim in Omaha Nebraska Tim. You're on the Ken Coleman show. Good afternoon. Thanks for taking my call. You Bet how can I help? not getting, my story. three years ago I left the company right are done for second years. And I left a seeking a better quality of life both mentally physically I wanted more flexibility and more time with my family. I joined a new industry with a last company covering two of their states. And I'm very happy where I'm currently at what the company that had left three years ago. They just called me this week out of the blue. There's wondering if I'd be interested in joining them as director and right now currently making no thirty, five four signed more than I was from years ago with this company. And the company understands that for he from. This offer you'd have to be very competitive salary. Wise Right. There's wondering, should I be taking this call with them to year what they're offering or rioters look at? How it was three years ago with them and where I'm at now not physically and I'm just very and currently at I'm just kind of looking back on that. Yeah I. I don't mind you listening but with some very strict parameters. and. So the parameters are Hey guys. Appreciate the interest I'll listen here on out. You know but then you've got some very clear things. Okay. Guys. Let's run down the list of things, right? Number One about them being competitive with your current salary, they'd have to offer you significantly more. would. Be. One clear parameter. But even that's not worth you going back if it's going to be the same crap you dealt with before my right. Exactly and I think of the call you just I took this morning with the WII. Or some. The phone there some. Different location. Very similar Alec the same company that I was worth three years ago. But a different will to send within the company's well. So the question become to you think that the the toxicity that you're dealing with before was was localize to where you before reformed. So if you're in this new or do you think it was an I if you're in this new situation that it might be better or was this an institutional problem that you think just kind of through the whole organization. I remember that is it might be. Yeah. So here's my point. A. I'm fine when you taking a call. Be If. You don't want to take the call. You're not an idiot I. think that's part of why you're calling me to you know you're kinda calling me going can they want me back? If feels good doesn't it? Very. Good. But then you go back to you on family I know. But the only reason well, not the only one of the reasons you're calling me is you're going am I a little silly for not at least listening. Exactly all right. So I'm telling you know you're not silly for listening. But do and. Unless the answer is. Hey we're going to offer you twenty five percent or more or just a significant bump. Plus. Plus they got a lead with that. Then you gotta go guys. Here's what I dealt with before. I don't want to deal with that again. I'm actually healthier mentally emotionally and physically because I'm not at your place anymore now. If you're telling me that that was localized in a very exclusive situation in that doesn't exist and you can prove it to me well, then we can have a conversation. And then and then you know I guess I didn't say because I just assume you know. I even if those two things checkout and you go, that's good I still wouldn't take it if it's not putting you on the ladder you want to be on. If it's not taking you to the end result to the dream job stage six. Don't take it don't. A company I feel like I have more influence and my voice is heard I'm better with US company then it wasn't this company. And I just like like you said, I think they have a bunch of sack that. Address up, front. Crude your guidance on this call. Yeah and listen one last thing. If let's say they check everything off and you go on the phone, they've told me everything I want to hear. I. Would still have a high level of suspicion and I would make sure that we talked to several people in that company in that new place find a way to get connected to somebody. 'cause you know they'll tell you. You know somebody that works we'll tell you. He better verify. You, know it's like the old phrase trust but verify. Verify yeah. That's what you gotTa do here So yeah go into it but I've given you parameters where you will not be tempted. Eight either ought to slam and trust your gut on that. Appreciate the call eight, four, four. Seven four, seven, two, five, seven, seven. KIRBY IS UP NEXT IN HOUSTON? Texas Kirby you're on the Ken Coleman show. Hi Ken. Filmmaker talk to me I. Just. Amazing. I've really remedial. Okay. I'm here for you what's up? So I currently have a career that I did for about almost five years. Actually left in try to pursue something else 'cause I just didn't feel like I was passionate about what I was doing I was good at it, but you can't do isn't necessarily should do. And so I went in got a law degree. So and that didn't really turn out how I want to just assuming that God had a different plan for me and so you know after A. Field I went back to the. In because I have get it. Yes. There, and maybe there was just some comfort there. But you know at the time I just think I was a little tired of. You know just the rejection or whatever, and so I'm back in that field and got a break from it because I had a kid and became a at home mom for a little while. And then didn't even realize I wanted that but then went back to work baby step two has been kind of in a place where I need to work right now and get out of debt. And I'm just torn because I feel like I should be doing something else feel pretty miserable most as driving in. And a part of it, of course, is having babies at home knowing that I really really WanNa be with them but really can't. Just really mean tactics that but then also have. Ashes that I wanted to pursue an I, just really need some guidance because I feel like I'm all over the place in our family probably is going because. I've tried different things and so far have really stuck with them. Okay. I get that. So here's the deal you're going to have to stay in the day. John No matter what you tell me the ultimate dream is you might have two or three ideas, which is what you're kind wrestling with. But those are probably those are probably long-term plays anyway, and so right now, the good day job that allows you to attack your debt and baby step two and then get you to baby step three Dave Ramsey's baby step three I'm a part of Ramsey solutions if you're new to our program and so that you're GonNa have to do that anyway. So I would change your mindset. Yes or your heart is hurting there's no question. Your heart is hurting being away from baby but when your heart starts to hurt, go on doing this for this baby and this baby will one day appreciate it. And and so no that the baby's fine and and and the baby's not mad at you and there's no resentment from the baby, right? You're doing this for the baby I just think it's all about the day job right now once you get out of baby step two and you get to babysit three and you put that three six months expenses in the bank and you get through that. Now you're putting away fifteen percent in retirement. Now we start going. Let's get a little bit more serious about the path to the dream job. So here's you do I want you to hang on the line? And IS GONNA. Make sure that you get our career clarity guide. It's free at Ken. Coleman DOT COM. But I, want you to do this because I'm running out of time I want you to take the career clarity guide, and then let's get her scheduled in a week or two when she's gone through that exercise and I want to help her with a path forward so that she can get excited about that.

"Gil elliott's he's got to the races can catch him eighty yards. It's so easy to be a little something special player sloane talents what we're going inside but don't the oh god. Don't forget today today. We're gonna win menace to what a weekend of college football in the mid west that was. I'll tell you it was <hes> it was. It was an eventful weekend wasn't it finally i mean and not only that i'm going to hear it was <hes> there was in some drama. Obviously there was some letdowns. I know the s._e._c. Top tier played really well. They had a good weekend the rest of the s._e._c. absolutely shit the bed the top tier like tennessee certainly not tennessee but we're gonna talk about the top performers in the mid west and want to kind of update you on where we're waiting on. I tunes in spotify and all them to approve the feed for this podcast. This show the minutes of the midwest show so in in the meantime. We're gonna put it on our menace to society feeds so you can listen to it and then <hes> hopefully tomorrow <hes> really by the time this drops publicly that feed should be available so search for menace to the mid west is the podcast show and so go on their subscribe so you can listen to this show as well as the menace to society show that we've i've been doing now for twenty five episodes <hes> but but let's take a look at the the mid west top performers obviously we're going to jump into ohio state here in a minute and analyze that game and the top performers members of that game but outside of ohio state there was some there's people that went off this weekend for sure for sure <hes> <hes> the the the big debate right now right or at least leading into the season and was shape patterson and justin fields and obviously justin feels played extremely well and we'll talk about that in a minute but shape patterson played excellent as well both of them <hes> graded out in the top four quarterback performances of the weekend in the country. <hes> shape patterson was four th justin feels was i and i mean he went seventeen to twenty nine to over two hundred yards. Three touchdowns touchdowns had like a one fifty one q._b._r. Really really played well and i know his receivers played well too so that was a big big game for for shea and in michigan. I don't think it really separated anything. I think they're still shape patterson justin fields. You don't know who's really the better quarterback certainly not. I mean f. a. u. Middle tennessee see. I know this <hes> michigan didn't it was similar performances. I mean michigan beat middle tennessee forty two twenty one ohio state beat f._a._u. Forty five twenty one. I mean very very similar. You know it's a game one q._b. One week one nothing to get to shot in the ass about playing against the same team pretty much. They had the same opponent some of them penn state played idaho not on the same level seventy nine to seven that was ridiculous michigan. Ohio state maryland played howard. I mean i'll tell you this. You know who else had had a game and he's already been called. A heisman candidate preseason heisman hope jonathan taylor jonathan taylor wisconsin was ridiculous. I mean he graded <music> out eighty four percent on the game he had eighteen touches for one hundred eighty three yards and four touchdowns. He looked like saquon out there he was he was ridiculous. I mean he had over ten in yards. Every time he touched the ball on average he has six runs of more than ten yards which is lead the big ten right now <hes> he definitely he had a game for him and and in south florida's a good defense. I was forty nine nothing but it was forty nine nothing because of jonah the taylor he <hes> he had a game and you know who else was impressive. I dunno i didn't i had had to go back and watch the highlights and break those down because i could not watch the whole game and seventy nine to seven trouncing of idaho by penn state but <hes> the freshman freshman they have devon ford mayonnaise he explosive he only had six carries and went for over one hundred hundred seven yards one touchdown he averaged seventeen point eight yards per carry and i get it. I know it's idaho people say it's alright home though yeah well we house they played f._a._u. <hes> michigan played middle tennessee state so that is a big big you performance from him so i'm excited to watch him play this year. The other guy who everyone expects to go off and did go off his rondell more know purdue lost. I know they look bad against nevada but he had eleven catches hundred twenty four yards and a touchdown. He played extremely well and obviously very disappointing. Their produce quarterback. We're back did not play. Well and i guess credited nevada thirty one thirty four. They pull off the win i was i was talking to somebody earlier this week again. After that nevada's not a terrible program i mean they're they're an eight win program most years. They're not bad but produce should beat them. My favorite thing i don't know if it was during the game or on a highlights sites and one of the common i could. I should do an entire segment on how commentators pissed me off because there's so many but i mean one of the guy said he was talking about something about nevada the players they have and how they were this relative unknown and he was like i i mean i i probably. I bet you couldn't name one quarterback to play it. In nevada data one quarterback and i was like excuse me bitch a quarterback there was one that was in the heisman race a few years back and not only that but like he's he's in the he's in the news all the time. I mean colin kaepernick heard of him ever i you couldn't name one quarterback that plate nevada. Maybe pick a different position. He was a beast in nevada too but i mean we'll pick a different school a different position something like what he's one of the most notable quarterbacks especially i was. I i was speechless. I was like he didn't just say that. I i can name i. I thought it was a joke but then he didn't throw the punch line in there. I was like wow we're paying these. Someone's paying. These people. Just remember for that but yeah so obviously bad game for purdue good game for rondell. I'd say the other kid that i watched a i watched a half was the kid jacob yaakob my guy defensive ever michigan state he. He added three tackles for loss to q._b. Hurries two forced fumbles. It's not an explosive win over tulsa twenty eight to seven they. They won pretty handily and he went. He had a game so i'm so i'll be so excited if mark dantonio can have a mark dantonio tonio s. defense this year because he has been lacking at the big ten is missed it. It's time to to have that back so those are our top performers of the week in the midwest. Obviously notre dame louisville tonight so we look for some notre dame man to make that list moving forward but overall the big ten didn't have a horrible day. I'll tell you what the bottom tier. The big ten really played well. Rutgers beat umass forty eight twenty one you had penn state will these at the bottom of the big ten but tell about blowouts maryland beat eight hundred seventy nine zero illinois beat akron forty two to three so some of those lower tiers if we can get that lower tier the big ten to raise their game. You want to talk about the best conference in college football while you gotta chance now because you look at lower tier the s._e._c. which we're going to talk about in the medicine society show a little bit later but they did not fare so well now. Obviously we had some some. I guess lack of performances when you look at like nebraska only one in thirty five to twenty one against south alabama and you obviously then you had the upsets right or the upset purdue. Losing nevada was rough but i think wisconsin win is huge for the conference u._s._s. Not a bad team. Yeah i think the conferences whole as a whole really performed well the top tier ohio state penn state eight michigan. They took care of business. They did what they should have done. They weren't perfect but they did what they needed to do. The middle of the the big ten really there was some <hes> minnesota was one that was embarrassing. Really i mean they are almost losing lost the game and they were the kickoff big ten game. They were there the intro to the conference and it was like they almost lost to a f._c. Team come on come on p._j. Which nobody in a big five or a power five conference should ever lose to f._c._s. team of course not the one game aimed i think was the most disappointing was the game of the week in the mid west northwestern stanford that was not only disappointing because northwestern was so bad and their quarterback play was so bad bad but it was it was disappointing. Stanford was so bad yeah. Both teams were bad. It was a really boring game to watch and and a guy that i i really liked on film last talked about him. In the off seasons cage acosta he just played average at best he no he didn't he play below average but we're going to get into that game at the end of the show definitely want to go from here to kind of as a wrap up of the big ten the players and and really want to talk about the buckeyes in week one so how about the buckeyes took on the mighty lane kiffin florida the atlantic als and overall. I think it was a decent first game. You know solid <hes> we'll kind of go through what my opinions are. What i saw that i thought was was excellent. What i saw that needs to be improved by week two because after watching cincinnati game that's a real one. He is not going to be a cakewalk a better be ready for sure but i mean overall four hundred sixty nine yards seven fourteen on third downs. That's fifty percent not terrible. I think justin feels played really well. <hes> i actually graded out the highest quarterback in the group of five the power five in the country. I think it's great was ninety point four which is extremely high so he had the highest grade in the country and then he also had two big drops caja had a drop in the first quarter and chris alavi had one in the second quarter so he probably lost. I obviously two completions but another eighty yards passing those were downfield really good throws he was he also was ninety four percent completion percentage when he was kept clean so we'll talk about the line a little bit here in a minute but this line and pass broken cleanup and become a solid aspect for this team watch out. He was number one in all of college football football completing the ball when he was kept clean so that's going to be the key moving forward. Keep this kid clean not only because clearly they have no other option at quarterback but also because because he's ridiculous when you give him the space to be ridiculous yeah. I think every buckeye fan probably cringed a little bit on that first blitz by f._a._u. When it feels really took a big hit and went down throwing arm and you know luckily he was fine you know that's why they have re protectors and all that geared during his okay and i and that's going to be a part of the new video putting out for patriotic and i'm gonna put one out for patriot one for just general public called film forensics because that's one of the place that breaking down because j._k. Dobbins flat had an and protection and i told you in the preview show j._k. Needs to be better and paseo that has to happen and it didn't happen. I mean he had a complete bust in pass bro. He bypassed the linebacker that he was supposed to block and that linebacker hit justin fields that can't happen not if we're going to if estates and go out and win the big ten that can't happen. They need a running back. That is excellent impasse bro and that's what that's what zeke was has carlos hyde was. That's what j._k. Needs to be for sure. The only the only real negative i could say about justice fields is and it's not a negative. It's first first game game of the year most quarterbacks i mean almost every school in the country would kill for a performance like justice fields heads so we're really nitpicking here but he does need to clean up his timing a little bit he was laid on a couple of quick game throws and a movement throw the and being especially a movement throw like a rollout that can be disastrous. If you're late i mean the whole defense is pursuing and versus better defense. Both of those can be problematic if he doesn't get it fixed but fortunately it was f._a._u. Is going through the grades. After i've watched the film i thought justin fields obviously played extremely well. I thought you know what kudos to brandon bow and grading out at eighty two percent at first game back. That's that's big time they need to. They need that jeremy rucker. How about him unbelievable. I mean he he he really burst on the scene and we're gonna talk about some things that need improved moved on especially the tight end position before catches thirty eight yards two touchdowns greater doubt it at seventy five percent i mean that was really excellent game for area the other one joan jackson so the two the two new guys on the offense line essentially graded out the highest on the offensive line and then ben victor and austin matt graded out decently high to <hes> <hes> some some disappointing i guess points of need to improve for the buckeyes the first and foremost offense align <hes> it was it. I wouldn't seen a bomb a nation. It wasn't terrible but why davis played very average. Josh alabi when he went in the game was very average in the run game but josh josh albee is a very athletic tackle. He graded out really well impasse bro but when it came to the run game and moving people and being tough he wasn't there. He didn't show up but the really really the old enters a whole did that. You didn't see a ton of just displacement f._a._u. You shoulda saw major displacement and the other thing. I saw that it was very concerning is there was twice in the first half that we seven-man pass protection. We kept the tight end and back in and they've had a three man. Rush and fields got pressured twice. I i mean just you do the math. That's more than a double team on each guy so we had to ohio state players on one player across the board and they still got pressure now schematically. I'm not a huge fan of that because anytime you have seven man pro versus three men rush there have a lot of guys in coverage covering covering your four people right really three people because the quarterbacks throwing the ball so you have now. You have eight people covering three hard to get open so schematically. I really hate that package but i know kevin wilson had success with it at indiana. It's more of a temple thing usually but it was not not that impressive and and and then i really people i know buckeye fans or just on cloud nine right now think we could beat the patriots. I thought it was an average average. First game above average will say above average. I game jay dobbins was was okay. I mean twenty one carries ninety one yards four point three yards a carry in like i mentioned in the past bro he still liability ability and we also can't be we can't afford fumbles. Come on i first game of the year and we have a fumble already from j._k. And here's the problem with that. I know we have the mario mccall right mario but that's what killed mike webber's career not killed it but that's why he didn't have a better career. He fumbled all the time and so he saw himself on the bench. The question is going to be if jay has a fumble issue if he's not gonna hold the ball high and tight like he's supposed to will we will ohio state bench inch j._k. Dobbins and make tomorrow the guy well. I think if you look at it tomorrow really only touch the ball three times in the game so he didn't really get as many touches. I thought what if you go by total number touch mark master teague looks like the second beck yeah no but that's i mean that's because it's a blow out in in the running the clock out in the four-minute offense camario was the second back he was back in. I mean massar. Teague is a good clean cleanup guy. He's a good he's a good mop up duty running back. I mean he runs. It's hard hits the whole hard. I don't think he's going to be too certainly not not a to that we did ohio state needs and we'll see if the mario does that also i mean that's that's up up for up to be seen right. I did think i also thought the perimeter blocking was little sloppy. Which again you you sometimes have that ah i game <hes> but i think people might take for granted. How well edge was blocked. When urban was there and that i think that needs to be improved majorly <hes> <hes> and and it will it'll it'll get it'll get an improve focus and improved but but we're running these perimeter run plays and we need to block the edge or the perimeter rump plays where the edge is not blocked well those are negative yardage plays and demoralizing because you have to be able to stretch the defense horizontally in order for the interior run game to work right simple as that. I did think they had some good some really. I really like some of the scheme stuff they did. The cross released by the tight ends that a burst jeremy <unk> wide open for a touchdown and then they did a little schemed up play for what is read cover to the bench victor touchdown. I mean they were they were messing. Some were caja in the slot kind of trying to figure out who's covering cagey the safety or corner there and they're trying to read it and then ends up the doesn't have enough depth and ben's just wide open. I love that and i think one of the biggest concerning thing not concerning things but one thing that ohio state fans need to watch out for moving forward is what happened to ohio state after after they kind of exploded in the first half after the first twenty eight after the first quarter is f._a._u. Obviously made some adjustments. Ohio state obviously was kind of getting production that was higher than their performance. They had a couple of big plays couple pop plays. He just feels papa fifty one yard run you had been victor wide open jeremy record wide open so after they got those adjustments down the one thing they started doing that really gave us problems as they started adding their boundary corner into the run fits both in post snap squeeze and also a few corner blitz in ohio state did not handle it well. This will continue to resurface now. After what i watched on film every defense you watch cincinnati the same thing because every everyone's a copycat in college football they see something that we did it all the time on offense you see some that works and you're like oh we need to do that and then all of a sudden you put it in for that week so you're going to see these teams adding the boundary corner in the run fit quite a bit now until we can either block it with the receiver or office allies starts starts seeing an accounting for for it and <hes> that's that's going to be a major thing that defense is going to do to allow state until they show they can manage it and it should be a major point of emphasis moving forward kevin wilson and really <hes> greg said roya. I'll tell you another thing. I saw darren. Lee actually mentioned it on twitter. How about the buckeyes going under centers yeah under center using like many that was a a a no that made a lot of fans happy well. I love it. I think it's it's something that i know. Ryan wanted to do for the last two years and never got around to doing it really committing to it at least especially dwayne he wanted to do it <hes> but that's something it does oh so much for the offense and and it does take an element of the quarterback back read run game stuff out of it but at the end of the day it is kind of nice to have back set at seven yards at the top of what would be and just roll downhill and take take take a hand off right the other thing it. Did i mean you you watch chris alavi touchdown where he just absolutely made the corner look ridiculous flip them around in circles he kind of gave a a go router or fade route stem and then snapped off a post spongy corner around but that happened that whole thing was wide open. I mean no chris. Alavi did a great job handling handling the corner but you watch just feels take a snap under center turn his back to the defense present the ball the running back rolls over at the whole defense is like three hearts from the line of scrimmage scrimmage and now just field pops up and it's just chris alavi thirty five yards downfield by himself and it's just beautiful the hard play action you can have under center is awesome and <hes> we already talked about it. <hes> i think that j._k. Bust and pass pro where our christopher. We're just took a shot and then alavi dropped the ball one. I was really impressed with justin fields on that play. I mean he has a guy unblocked at the running back made didn't block and all of a sudden now he's letting the ball loose and really puts it on the money to chris alavi with a guy barreling going down in his face. That was really impressive to me. <hes> another thing that i saw was too many sloppy blocking schemes upfront <hes> several clips poor landmarks poor any any points footwork that needs cleaned up even watch if you go back and watch justin fields fifty one yard run. You'll see thera mumford. He is on the left. He's playing left tackle right. This is quarterback zone to left. His only job is to not get beat to the right. That's like the office line calls it inside v he's gotta take the block off on the guys is inside v of his neck and as long as he keeps that guy on his left he did his job like he could literally fall down and as long as that defender doesn't cross his face. He did his job and he's still got cross faced and you watch it. Thank god fields can run because that guy. I mean it was almost a trip up tackle and you're like come on fair. That's an easy block man. You have hard blocks and blocks. That's an easy. That's an effort block so that was as a whole the whole game that was a little concerning and then it shows how fickle oh college football is. I mean twenty eight. Nothing just absolutely role in second and three on the twenty two yard line in the red zone and chris alavi gets gets called for a clear push. Oh shaw p._i. That was so unnecessary and now momentum was shot right and i think that was that was the turning point where you saw f._a._u. Kind of change what they were doing doing they adjusted and then you also saw the momentum kind of die down. It never really shifted obviously but it died down a little bit but as a hold offense that's played well but i think the story of the game really was the the different identity on defense. I haven't seen that in the horseshoe in probably ten years. The defense definitely looked a lot better than oh. I thought and i hope that they were being very vanilla because it was f._a. F._a._a. you well. We'll find out this week because i mean the one thing i will say is. I'm not a fan of. Let's put it this way. I love the bail corner stuff. They were doing with a corner lines or plays off and i love cover three. We also because of the way they're coaching cover three nowadays. It's hard coverage to beat and that's obviously going to be a mainstay like a staple of his defense but but i will say this is how we're gonna play actually we if that's how ohio states couldn't play the rest of the year be prepared for little easy completions for minimal the yard is small check downs open. There was a there was a handful like just throwing hitches out to the flats because avoided area right in my opinion bail off coverage is it should be a change up if you're ohio state if you have jeff okuda playing corner to have him play off bail. Every snap nap is just absolutely idiotic so much talent out there that you just are under utilizing and i'm sure they're not going to. I'm sure this is just just playing their defenses against f._a._u. Yeah and they're going to get out of it and now they get to go play cincinnati and throw some wrinkles adam. Throw some curve balls and i'd like to see a little a little more press but overall. I really liked the defensive performance. I'll tell you what i love is me in the middle at middle linebacker. Maliki harrison middle linebacker was awesome and then you look at the breakdown of snaps. Here's what i saw. Here's what here's what the defensive staff told me from how they played pete warner. They love him played fifty seven snaps apps most the most of all linebackers so there's a lot of conversation about should be in their their answer is yes. He should and then a tough borland. There's a lot of conversation about him and i know we talked about our washington kind of blowing up for his guy. Tough borland played thirty four snaps in bear browning played thirty four snaps so they're splitting time we can say tufts. The guy tufts the guy. They're splitting time right now. At other linebacker spot the one that it's not splitting much time as i said pete warner and then too raja played twenty three snaps so so they're getting guys in there. I know it was f._a._u. But the clear battle right here to me is barren and tough borland because although people are calling for barron browning he had four targeted throws in the game four receptions for fifty five yards so every wants to talk about tough can't run put in barron. He's a better athlete. He did not cover oh well against f._a._u. At all and he graded out at fifty eight percent so let's call them down on the bench tough. Put bear in because right now. Tough is the best option from what i saw on that film. Now i'm not saying tough is a great option. I'm saying he's the best option and we need to get more out of barron. Browning and toronto mitchell because roger didn't great out that well l. either but the highest rated linebacker was tough borland. I mean he graded out at seventy one percent. He's he graded higher than pete to raja barron barron. I'd stay back maliki. Maliki rated alex seventy seven but i mean of linebackers in contention right but the defense is a whole i mean here's what you here's what you saw jeff. Okuda is special and you'd better enjoy him for four more months. Definitely a top drag because that's all you got the top ten. It's like the owners of the indian set about french door. Disa listen in gonna be here much longer. Just enjoy him while he's here yeah because he is special man. He is special. Yeah i think we talked about it on the preview show or several times through the off season about jeff okuda i mean he he is when i watch him he reminds me of denzel war rooms like that type of corner and he he has a chance to be the next big thing out of ohio states back defensive the defense about u._b. You and you know what i haven't watched the entire country yet but i've been able to evaluate probably what fifteen games so far week one and i'll probably watch a couple more here in the next couple l. days but what i've seen the two corners i've seen her c. J. anderson at florida and then jeff okuda ohio state the biggest differences both similar and coverage both are long both are fluid both can run both are blanket cover corners. The differences okuda will come and make contact. You'll tackle. You and that's so huge. That's what i saw just this bleak. I thought thought he was like a lot like greedy but then now looking at him. He's more denzil ward. Well come up and hit you just end zone. Greedy does not do that and you know what i'll tell you what the most impressive thing that i watch four is when he does it. He gets up with attitude like he wants to do it. He's not doing it because he has to do it. He wants to make that tackle. He wants to take out your kneecaps and flip you over. He wants to come up and make those plays and that was so he played you better. You better enjoy him. <hes> for for the next twelve games or whatever it is because that's that's about the end i think gi probably sit out the bowl game to visit the defense as a bizarre random thing to bring up. We'll just saying he's not going to sit aalto ballgame unless they lose three games and go to a shitty bowl then i would sit out to. I'll tell you the other guy that only played seventeen snaps on defense. <hes> was brennan white which was really surprising me played seventeen snaps on defense and graded seventy nine percent fourth highest grade on defense and so a lot of i don't know if it was a <hes> there was a reason for that but i'd like to see more brennan white but the other story line here that that is i mean it was predicted. It was said had to be this way but the defense line was ridiculous. I mean out of the top seven players one two three four of them are defensive lineman top seven grades. It's four d. Lineman will you would just you knew chase young would be looking good out there. I knew he was a monster have his day and chase young graded out at like six six v best on defense. The guy that was so impressive to me was jay sean cornell. He graded out eighty nine percent. He was a monster. Those zone reads those those reversed versus zone reads or whatever you wanna call them with the jet sweep breeds he was taken away both all game and just just tracking people down so he played. He played outstanding him and bb. Landers were the two the highest grades and they played outstanding yeah. I was gonna say. I saw a lot of b._b._c. I know he had to grade out pretty high. Yeah i mean he he greeted out really high and the overall kind of analysis. I think this going back to the off. Coverage in the in the soft coverage are starting the ohio state starting corners. There's were targeted and coverage twelve times right. Semi's a ball was thrown to their guy twelve times and there was nine receptions that just shows you the minimal amounts of contested throws right because they only got forty six yards on those nine receptions five yards a catch and that's okay. That's that's that's what if that's what will how states are going to do then then. You have to be prepared for that. There's gonna be some easy throws. There's gonna be some little things that happen some easy completions but i i would imagine that they will start changing it up a little bit <hes> moving moving forward as we start getting into the meat of the big ten schedule. The two two things that i saw on special teams that i think are critical is one is three point stances on punt return. I don't know if people even ever noticed that paid attention to that but we used to. When when i was at ohio state we were we were dominant in punt returner pump block and we were a three point stance operation that meant that there was a threat of rushing the punt every snap and then carry combs and graciano decided to change it must have been three years ago and then it was a complete fall off in production. I mean the the punt team knew that they were that no one when was rushing because they were in two point stances there was this mirror cornerback technique bullshit and all of a sudden guys are running down free and we couldn't. We couldn't return a punt. What you saw in this game was three point. Stance is across the board the threat of rush. I mean i loved it and you saw great hold up. The punt. Return team could be something special. If we get a special guy catching the pun. I mean the mario. Obviously you could tell he was dinged up. He wasn't running well but i i think that'll he'll develop and get healthy. Maybe that guy but we need a dynamic returner the other other thing you saw on special teams as we cannot kickoff worth shit. I said i was worried about it all the last month and i'll say it again. We are one hundred and second in america on our kickoff times in in length. We cannot kick the ball off and we don't know if we can kick field goals because it was just a blowout blow out. We just kick an extra point. You need to yeah. I am concerned about the kicker situation but i love the punt return again though overall. I think it was a quality first game. There's obviously always going to be things in the first game that you need to clean up but i think the biggest thing that i saw in heard on social social media and even when i watched some of the post game reports it's it's it's one over inflation of how well they played in the first quarter and to a <hes> an over deflation of how bad it dropped off because college football so momentum oriented that is that is the name of the game and you you start getting getting a couple explosive plays all of a sudden. You're rolling downhill on somebody. All you need is one thing or two things in succession to happen and the whole momentum changes and like i said f. a. u. Made some good adjustments on defense but you're up twenty eight nothing second three in the red zone going in now. You're backed up fifteen yards. The very next play justin fields throws a poorly thrown bubble to gear it wilson luke feral completely whiffs is block and now it's a fumble f. a. u. ball now the whole game. He's turned and it's it's not that oh we got conservative. Play calling another call in the same place. They were calling the same place until until the second half. I thought right one was twenty juanita zero. I thought it was just going to be eighty eight zero game over a everyone did that's why there was like this. Oh what happened what happened right then and of course it always always turns to the coaches started being conserved coaches. This is like playing trestle ball out there. I mean it it literally similar play calls and f._a._u. Change their game plan. They're hitting. They're hitting these three. You know max pro isolation shots like chris alive as touchdown and then you had the double tight end and switch touchdown. I mean some of these things they're calling. They call them later in the game but now if i use dropping eight people in coverage and they're rushing three in getting pressure like the play calls those weren't that different. Let's not actually we took our foot off the gas. I heard that fifty times from all these analysts oh well you know i think how it really took their foot off the gas no they didn't they just didn't execute execute as well and if you changed over what they were doing. They're still on the gas. What do they were pushing the brakes. You put it in reverse. I got you foot off the gas. Put it in reverse. I stop it but <hes> that's what happens in college football and i mentioned before luke ferro needs to play better he does he had like five blocks in the first quarter and a half and and if he doesn't i hate to break it to you jeremy records or starting tight end boys as i don't even know if it's looks like yeah i don't even know if it's close i mean farrell graded out at fifty two percent and forty forty two percent in the past game and and he missed five blocks so i mean and jeremy record graded out seventy five percent you're talking about opposite ends of the office of greats so so i'm excited about jeremy rucker. I think he's going to be a really great player. Obviously urban made those comments on air. I think it was yesterday or maybe saturday that jeremy rucker was the best tight end prospect. He's ever recruited and i agree with that statement. I'd actually disagree with that statement. Entirely aaron hernandez was but this this caring but but as far as a pure tight end probably like a guy that might actually put his face on a six techniques events the big wide receiver which is what hernandez was but yeah so i'm that's an exciting thing. I think buckeye fan should be fired up about record and we need better out of luke feral for sure so overall. I think good week for the buckeyes good week one for the buckeyes. I'll tell you the disappointing joining game for the midwest and the big ten had to be the north western stanford game. I mean that was that was an abomination of what should have been a great game. Northwestern just looked awful yeah. Well you know who look awful. Really is hunter johnson and we talked about him was highly touted highest ranked quarterback to ever play for pat fitzgerald transfers in from clemson and he played hor horrific. I'll tell you what clemson does not miss him. No no they don't and there's no secret as to why trevor lawrence beat them out but <hes> just when i watch that's the game i broke down the film i mean he was throwing the ball late. He was missed making misreads inaccurate as all get out. I mean he had a q._b._r. Listless four for i don't know if that like not like four attempts like his q._b. Rating was a four four like we talked about earlier in the show shape. Patterson's persson's was a one v one two or something like that. He was a four yeah. I think the scale goes from zero to one sixty or something right right around that so shape patterson pretty close to perfect act one hundred johnson pretty close to as bad as positive as bad as you could be as bad as it could be so his overall great for the game was thirty nine percent and to be honest. I think the most disappointing part was his his counterpart cagey costello forty seven percent greed and i mean he he didn't play well either and he's he's supposed to be a top ten quarterback order back in the country katya customer. He got injured in the second quarter. I believe right. I wonder how bad that injury is. We'll see i guess but <hes> <hes> it was just a very lackluster game northwestern played terrible. I mean they've five five of fourteen on third down. That's a little over thirty three percent you you're not you're not gonna win a game. If you don't convert on money downs and you don't protectable they had four turnovers and thirty three off around thirty three percent on third down. You can't win the game that way. You and i think think if you really look at the game what i'm curious to find out as the season goes on is are these both teams are both teams defenses good enough to make the offense this this batter these offenses this bad. I mean you look at who's one of the better backs in the big ten. Only ten carries fifty four yards just over five yards a carry and then <hes> cameron scarlet for stanford only four yards a carry so the run defense was decent <hes> but i don't know how good they either these teams yeah i worried worried about north western trying to run the ball on stanford's front anyways but <hes> so that wasn't that surprising to me <hes> the one thing i'll say who played really exceptional for stanford and northwestern northwestern didn't have a skill player that could play at this level was the corner. They have paulson a depot. He shutdown everyone covered. I mean whoever he was on a granite. He was covering a above average players but he had thirty seven snaps in coverage only five targets so that most of the time they were so covered they didn't throw it to him and then when they did throw it to him five times there was one catch for seven yards any also had to use in an interception free interception if you saw it but it goes back to one hundred johnson throwing the ball late but i ah he actually shut them all down and north western just didn't have the skill they didn't scare you talk about a bad defense northwestern if you look at their entire defense player by player in the how they graded out their entire secondary graded out outside of their top fifteen defensive performers worse so they had fifteen players that great it out higher on that defense than anyone in their secondary and that's terrible because you look at the stats stanford. We didn't even throw the ball that well. That's a bad bad deal. And what a bad game. I mean it was it was miserable. I zero zero it ends. I'm like wow this is this. This is bad ball and then stanford puts up ten points to go intend nothing at half and i'm sitting here like this might be ten in the final score and then it was ten nothing after the third quarter so i yeah i think i think it really might be yeah. I talked to people a little bit about this game because obviously he he had north western getting three and a half he was not very happy with the end that game where the the sack fumble that the miss the ball in the end zone they gotta touchdown to go up ten really screwed him well. That's what happens. That's that's in that crazy. That's how it works. It's in the bag. We got it down by three games about the end. I got three and a half and then boom touchdown fluke play. It's over that happened a number of a number of things <hes> with over under it'll have state. I know there was a late field goal that changed that one but but but overall i think this was the most disappointing aspect of the mid west football. This week was just the fact that northwestern couldn't even play halfway halfway decent like we were that is you're looking at a lower to middle tier big ten team against the middle to slightly upper taylor pac twelve team. Just make it a game like play competitive. Make it entertaining and give bid big ten a good reputation right. You look at that that game should have been similar to the auburn oregon game now. Those two teams are not near the level of auburn oregon but similar matchups right similar comparative match watch up and it just wasn't and it was just a shame but i will tell you that was <hes> that was a good week. One glad glad we got that under our belt really excited about week to. I know there's some some in big games. <hes> i want to say big games. It's similar week to week one. I know how state has a much bigger test. Cincinnati coming to town really excited breakdown cincinnati's film from their big win over u._c._l._a. l._a. And really jump into that on later in the week when we do our preview show and see about this match is the first we we said in the off season and a lot of people have been talking about it. This is when we're gonna find out how how quick we can progress offensive line at ohio state how quickly that happens and there's another couple handful for decent games.
