"If for no other reason than rally is made very few changes in the coaching staff since he took over obviously, you made a big one this year with Mike stoops Bob's brother leaving as defensive coordinator in the middle of the season. But. I think it speaks a lot. You know, whether or not Ryan day benefits or is hampered by the looming presence of urban Meyer depends on their relationship, which has appeared to be very much want to of mentor and men Minty over over the last few years. I guess what? We now look for is is who does Ryan day Keeble among that staff. Does he bring in his own guys, whoever they might be, you know, do the older more experienced wizened heads on that staff and they've got quite a few of them especially on defense. Do they all bail out for other jobs? I mean that to me is one of the more interesting stories that will cover in January. Yeah. I completely agree. I think the most interesting view destination or whether he's staying or going conversation involves Greg Xiang. No who Ryan day was if use of in praise with four after the his term as acting head coach really said Drake's Yano guided him through that process. And let's be honest Ivan if Greg Xiang, oh, and I've been told us from sources in recent days, he was going to be the successor to urban Meyer at Ohio State. And then the Tennessee thing happened, and that changed a lot of things unfairly I think for Greg Xiang. Oh, how he was viewed. And then when urban Meyer suspended instead of Greg Szanto being the acting head coach, which makes the most sense former college head coach former NFL head coach they go with Ryan day and the rest is history. And so I think it's going to be fascinating. I think in many ways Ryan day would like to keep Greg Xiang. Oh, because they they grew so close and Drake shadow helped him so much during that time. But. Gregg giannotti. I'd have opportunities with the NFL. He might have opportunities. Elsewhere in college, and your they have Alex grid. John staff, whose very well regarded as well younger defensive coordinator type. So that's going to be very interesting to see because Lincoln Riley, as you mentioned essentially kept Bob stoops of staff in place until this year what he had to part ways with Mike stoops the defensive coordinator midway through the season and talk about an important coordinator higher. I don't know if there's one that's more important, especially if the semi-final goes the way that we think it will against Alabama here, you were like in Riley as as great as you've had a two years to start your career you've had two Heisman Trophy winning quarterback. And you haven't been able to win a national title. Clearly that means the defense needs an upgrade the coaching staff. So that's going to be important as well. But I think the future at Ohio state's going to be really interesting to watch. So you talked to a lot of assistant coaches is. Is Lincoln rally going to have trouble luring? Defensive coordinator from another conference to come in and deal with the big twelve. Yeah. I think it's going to be interesting. I mean, whoever comes in is going to have tremendous leverage because of what you mentioned the league and how difficult it is. But also the fact that Oklahoma doesn't have an offensive coordinator. And they have a co-op. It's a coordinator. And Bill Baugh gets paid pretty well. But you know, that defensive coordinator job now in college football, you look at the salaries being paid the Dave Aranda LSU to bread Venables at Clemson to Mike Elko who had an opportunity to go to temple as a head coach ended up staying at Texas where you can almost two million dollars. Todd Orlando at Texas makes almost two million dollars. So the new the next alcohol defense of coordinator is going to have great leverage in that negotiation. And that's probably going to be a big reason why they end up taking that job, especially if they're coming from a team or a league where it's a little bit easier to play defense. So yeah, I I don't think it's going to be too hard because of the money that they'll have to spend on that position. But but it could give some of those coaches pause. Do I want to leave? A situation in the SEC or the big ten or the Pac twelve to go to Oklahoma where I may have to be okay..

"Oklahoma use network. Once again, here's your host, Eric g n Randy Renner. Alright Eric is still fall out. I guess problem. The departure of Mike stoops and what did or did not happen in the locker room between Mike and Curtis Bolton and whatever else went on. But we will start to get ahead about the fixes that have been made coming up a little bit later on this morning. Yes. We will. We'll get to those here in just a second. But as you mentioned the Curtis Bolton, Mike stoops situation was still hanging over. Oh, you a week after Mike stoops's been dismissed oh you had an off week. And now all of a sudden some of the questions are starting to be answered about what happened in the Cotton Bowl at halftime in that locker room, dean, Blevins, and Jim Traber both reporting one thing, and you football players saying another because that's usually the way these things work. I've said before and I said, I'll say it a million. Times. I think when you're a journalist and a source has been good to you. You're gonna trust your source. Now, you never know what a sources agenda is. And they may want a story out there. That's not necessarily the full truth. But for the most part, I don't believe journalists lie, I believe they report what they hear that being said Curtis Bolton did want to shed some light on what exactly did happen at least his side of the story down in Dallas. And he spoke for fifteen minutes fifteen minutes on Tuesday. And what I see is a young man that is I think distraught is too much is too strong a word to use in the situation, but a young man that fully grasp the reality of the situation has a lot of respect for his ex coach more importantly, a lot of respect for his teammates and didn't want people getting the wrong idea. Here's what Curtis Bolton. Here's at least a couple of that fifteen minutes of Curtis Bolton speaking on the incident. Dallas from earlier this week during defense a media L ability. People looking at all the stuff that was going around about the locker room and all that stuff. Statement. Blows my mind. Someone. At the end of the day. Reporters report something source of the fact that that story got out reporter obviously felt like. It was somebody close to lock in the locker will drop a story like that. This is an intense sport. Obviously things are heightened Lhasa and Texas league. But on for someone to drop that. Those this big fist fight in the locker room. Just from this team makes the team. I could care less. Mark my coaching staff knows. Oh, at the end of the day was not huge argument that wasn't a huge fistfight. I was a little frustrated with how we're applying frustrated then Clemson quarter. We go to my coaches. Just goes. Sometimes I just need a just need my space. Was gonna look throughout up in there. The.

"And we'll see if they can keep it going long orange, the black chaps they've got something going down there in Austin, Texas, without a doubt Herbie, and then fall out from that. Also your reaction to Lincoln Riley saying, hey, we gotta make a change at defensive coordinator in Mike stoops is now out Ruffin McNeill now fills in as a you, your reaction. You know, I, it's tough. Anytime a coach gets let go middle the years specially after everything. Mike has done for the program. Some of the championships. He's been a part of. Over the over the long haul. I'm sure with Lincoln Riley when he under the circumstances that he took the job, I've never talked to him about this, but the Oklahoma defense has been struggling for a few years and I don't take it's Mike. I think it's as much about recruiting as it is Mike. And yet he did go out and bring rough McNeil in, you know, and, and I, you wonder if he kinda put him on the backburner there just in case things got sideways last year, it is. I fear to to kind of go that route. And then you would have thought if he was frustrated to this point mitt to remove him in the middle of the year that maybe he would have done it before the season started. So I, it's just it's a little team that still can accomplish so much. I always get a little nervous and feel I just it really has to be bad to make a move five weeks into the season, you know, and. We'll see how maybe it maybe a change in the front of the room and the defense will help. But I, I've always look at Mike is as one of the top defensive mines out there, and hopefully he'll have a chance to kind of sit back, reevaluate and come back swinging somewhere else. And tell you what I'd do by the way, come on tell you what I would do. I would. I would get on the first plane. If our Mike, I would get on the first plane to Tuscaloosa and I would become one of Nick savings analysts. If I wanted to continue to coach, I would. We come when Nick savings analysts like Kevin Steele did after he gave up one hundred points to West Virginia when he was a Clemson and he went there for year. Next thing, you know, Nick put his hand on his head. Kevin Steele went to Auburn and while up, he's the best defensive coordinator in the history college football when he went to offer because he had a couple defense alignment rush to quarterback. So if Mike stoops wants to continue to to coach and kind of resurrect himself and let people know he can still do this. I think that the first call would be Nick Saban go work on his staff and next year as an analyst and maybe twenty nineteen become one of the the hot commodities. It's out there is a new defensive coach and pick up a few new ring. Ankles along the way at Nick system and re reinvent yourself a little bit. I, that's that's what I would do. I think there are a lot of coaches that have done that including his current offense coordinator, Mike Loxley who is done. You know, he started there as an analyst and lane kiffin left and Sark left and Brian David left, and there's, there's locks, Colin right now. Some people feel is maybe the best offense in the history college football and these the offense coordinator. So they'll be another day sun will come up and and but that's what I would do. If if if I were Mike men are her, I didn't even thought of that aspect in that direction for Mike stoops guy. We both known for a long long time. You obviously a lot longer than I have, but best to him because I'm with you. I think he's one heck of a coach, and that would not be a bad spot to go to for year. If you mentioned if he wants to to keep coaching coming up in a moment, the head coach of the Florida Gators Dan Mullen right here on Herbie and Fitz reminder a look this, what you want your family to be safe, and here's why..

"But you can't be a guy that in your biggest game of the season, what happens? It is best quarterbacks, forty, five. What happened to Tom Brady and the Super Bowl. He threw all time playoff record, five hundred and five yards. But he did get a little careless in the end and just boom and the ball by Brandon. Graham gets not doubt of his hands because you're trying to wait for somebody to come open because you know you're gonna have to score forty one to win the what would happen if you know you defense doesn't have that date. The one thing you can't do. Okay. Okay, but you're going to try things. You might not try if you were head by two. That's the thing is he didn't need to when they were just playing offense. They were good enough right on Saturday and those forced heirs unforced airs. I should say he was mentally got Oklahoma beat spectacular. No, Mike stoops. Got him be that was horrendous. Ethan, that's the word of Aveling long game I've ever played. Great, thank you. I don't disagree. Listen their last two losses as a program. They've scored forty eight and forty five points and their their championship window is certainly open. They're gonna make a move at coordinator, but Mike stoops doesn't win the Heisman Trophy for Cuyler Murray. Just getting lizard. Have a lot of barriers to entry doesn't mean that you're gonna win the trophy in particular when there's performances like to putting out Dwayne Haskins with his twenty five touchdowns right now. I mean, that's that's an argument. Second QBR all of college football who does the best down intercession ratio in college football, the most helped in college, not even close to Joe? No, no. Maybe that the SEC he's got the best run back as well as the best one conferences the most players to the NFL year after year here. And I would argue that Keiler right now has the most help from play collar has the most help from system not a system that he's taken to the next level. He's doing a sensually what Baker maybe a little bit less what quarterback to doing in Alabama. What quarterback name? Coker macaroni weaker scheduled in this. Their opponents are ninety. Eight point on the schedule. Got a great. Everybody said that area. They don't play anybody throughout this Shannon, the rage in caging. Okay, stay. They say, they argue Joel Alabama, the plane thing, but every year the confetti rains down on on certainly have the easiest path, right? I mean, they've. The least barriers to entry to go to the playoff. Should be ashamed of this. I will be saying to get that trophy third time and they have the Heisman, we're, let's if you don't get injured by way. Okay. I I don't know. I just don't think he's going to have the stages. I really don't as great as he is think about it. Haskins is going to have the TCU game fourth quarter, the fourth quarter of Penn State. He's going to have a game against Michigan. Wilburs got games at Texas against Oklahoma at home, potentially big, twelve wins to gonna play a fourth quarter. Maybe the SEC champion 'having we still got that narrative. It's not over, but Keiler is not came out the bit. Everybody remember that moment. You remember that moment skill. Gives them car Giffen. You came off the bench. He was an and your point is, well, he came up the visit, the national championship game. We still ride that way a pulled hamstring. We ran that way a pull. What's it? Gonna throw even walk a. He came out the pan. Have we ever seen anything like that before? And I live. Who did that championship game? I saw Baker Mayfield do it for the Cleveland Browns job. You. You. Last thing here you can make the argument. The most important player to his team is wilder was Virginia. They wouldn't be anywhere close to where they're at without. No, he got a couple of really good receivers. Oh, caliber doesn't have any monkeys, Brown CD lamb or just just God. Judge Judy. Judge Judy can fly. That's why we love college football Joel. Thank you. All right guys will the chiefs say undefeated in Foxborough on Monday night, we'll discuss. Right? Patriots are a three and a half point favorite at home for Sunday night showdown against the undefeated chief's New England is three and two, and they've scored thirty eight points in back to back home wins on the other side..

"They were hungry. They were young. They weren't all going to the NFL draft there. There is something to be concerned about their when you're talking about the pre MIR top teams in the country concern Pac, twelve offices that they may not get another team in the college football playoff, so they have done in a couple years or is it calm saying, hey, we still got Washington. They still have a shot mcshea which way you go on calmer concerned. I have sold my Pac, twelve stock done. You're out cash. Listen, I. When when did you sell it before? The season? It wasn't any both. These last dome it was a big step guy. I was trying to shove Stanford down your throat and walked Washington against Auburn, and I was explaining why you know on the road home game for Auburn, traveling across the country outta yada, yada. Bottom line is I think something's missing authencity. Washington Stanford is not quite as good as I thought they would be. I got a cell. I agree with you and I'm selling the chances because I think Oregon blue with Stanford game, but I will say this, I like what I see from Oregon for the future because here's the thing of Oregon. It used to be flash and it used to be sizzle, and it used to be temple and it used to be uniforms, watch their offense of lung. Turn on the tape. It's a little bit. It's more Cristobal. Now it's more nasty. It's got more substance to it. And just in Herbert is a freak show. I mean, just you don't make most human beings aren't made like that with his height, his ability to run his ability, put the ball where he wants to. So I still have a little faith in Oregon. But besides that, no love for the CU buffaloes all ralphie is taking another hit to the gut, like he did in the t shirt shot. We saw on that went viral video. A couple of bro wasn't Wasn't than than good. Coming up, including this guy is a legend drew Brees. What does he do to college football and the NFL. That's a big thing for these kids. We'll tell you and also coming up tonight. Sportscenter gang keys, Red Sox. The SOX one yesterday, sixteen one and just in case you didn't know game three Herbie breaks to today's path to the playoff and who has more issues right now, the eagles or the giants and big. Big pack, twelve Saturday, three thirty eastern ABC and ESPN two. It's Washington and Oregon in Eugene than seven thirty. Eastern Wisconsin takes on Michigan on ABC. Looks on. You. Drew brees. Leading passer, only one word that comes to mind. Greatness. Indeed. It was. In fact, I actually have the lamb laminated thing. The award they gave drew Brees after the game. What what is he done? Is it changed the game of college football and NFL drew Brees. He used to be the one in a million. If you talked to GM or scout in the league, they would say that, you know, well, this guy's five, ten, five, eleven six foot. Yeah, but drew Brees is one million. You can't count on that. He also was a spread guy coming from college to the NFL. But now we've seen in recent years Baker Mayfield obviously, most recently guys are breaking. Spread and the height. So I just think talking to NFL teams, it's just not as important anymore fitting that prototype. David is once was in rightfully so Russell Wilson? Exactly. Well, here's the thing to me even more so than that as people don't remember that this guy's distressed. His shoulder and doctors told him that he shouldn't play anymore in the Miami Dolphins and Nick Sabin. Who was there at the time coaching one in the league. Right. And they told him, no, they told him his shoulder wasn't sound enough, but Culpepper snee- was and just a guy that fought through injury wasn't supposed to come back again and still proved this wrong ju- breeze.

"You're gonna, give me everybody. That's fair. How about Daryl Henderson as well to the kid out of Memphis, running back, it was twelve yards a carry. Let's get a little running She gives gives you you loved love them them. running. Yeah, huge, huge different different different types and flush back in the day. Let's go, thanks. How about calm or concern? Okay. Let's start with Alabama. It's no Culver concern. Everybody's calling about the quarterback situation, but Trayvon digs going down and they give thirty one points up to Arkansas. Is that call or concern Pollick about that injury and the secondary us definitely concern. I think the only thing that you saw last year that started to derailed. The tie was injuries down the stretch, and I don't think they're back in. You've seen them shuffle a little bit already. They obviously got the safety spot with Thomas figured out because that dude's a man show you watch the tape just like a missile. It's unbelievable, but the corner spot for Alabama, I think is the spot where they need the probably not vulnerable, but they have. They need the most help where they're not as dominant and this takes away a great one for I struggle with that one because they've lost fifteen draft picks on the defensive side of the last two years. Six of them first round picks, but then every year ago, nine linebackers injured and they still win a national championship. So I don't know how much is going to really affect them. But if you were to pick one spot that you didn't want to have injury, it would probably be that secondary well and especially to because honestly, I don't think LSU all burn in Mississippi State is really going to challenge that secondary because they're not passing teams. They might see drew lock traveling down to Tuscaloosa this week. He can throw the ball. We'll talk about him a little bit later motion. That's a game to watch this Saturday. They go calm or concern on game to watch in the first quarter for Ohio State because this is too sluggish starts, Todd, are you calling or concern between the way the. Buckeyes are starting against Indiana, and then Penn State. Cover that I game last year that we referred to earlier. There are just certain weeks that Ohio State doesn't seem to show up ready to go right away. Now, Penn State one was a little different Penn State's really good football team. So I, I would say calm a little bit, but I do think if you're one of the leaders in that locker room. Maybe the speech should becoming about, hey, let's not having Iowa next year. Indiana always seems to hang around with them and get him. Let's not have another. I will because that one game was the one you can point to even when we talked to the college football playoff folks. They basically said that game was so ugly that we just couldn't put him in in the top four. Amazing back in their Pollock that game been twenty four points woken up early. They're probably playing for national championship last year. Yeah, they've probably have been in the mix, but here's the thing. I don't know if this is fair, not. I love to hear y'all's opinion, but I'm starting to get the feeling that something's missing it. Oh, how state? Because Todd, you watch the last several years and the defensive line is so dirty in physical and big, but they still give up so much so many Yar in so many missed the Simon and so many big plays and you got the shovel to the face a couple years ago, thirty one, nothing with Clemson. I just feel like there's been something off with Ohio State in big games and coming up big that I start to not trust them in those big moments. And I don't know if y'all feel the same way, but I feel like it's a trend because it's not talent guys. There is talented of the Ross, the last three years as anybody in the country right now, it's almost like they were better off when they were the. Dog the year that they wanted with urban, they were the underdog, no one expected them to beat Alabama..

"Four touchdowns against Arkansas, only attempting thirteen passes and then it was halftime. That's a few tips by three hundred yard. Passer in the f. b. s. quarterback in any other last fifteen seasons. We're gonna fifteen seasons. That's what we've been doing. This QBR topic shade David, how about these numbers? And by the way, it's not just to look at what collar Murray's doing right behind this. So Mick shade. Did I hear you correctly? On the last segment? Did you say you would take the field over two or is that just some bad interference earpiece? Some would call it lying. Others would call really good television tease I would. I would take to to to me right now what he's doing, the difference. He's man. This offense looked so different from what we've seen over the last decade plus of Alabama's dominance. They've been winning with defense special teams, grinding it out. Running the football, and now it's it's the air. I know Pollock you're a big numbers guy and all that, but I looked up today. I was just kind of curious, what is final numbers in this game? I've never seen and we're not allowed to talk about QBR's versus the other numbers. His QBR was three ninety. Four. I've never seen one over like one seventy one eighty. I don't even know what the perfect game is. I'm just saying, have you ever seen three ninety four QBR and then some of these other numbers that they're putting up. It's just it's amazing what he's doing weekend and week out. So you would take two versus everybody. You're saying correct them, we already. You sound like a lawyer just now trying to set him up. There's something just making sure because I would take going somewhere. I know that I know that to setting the role and fire, but there's been a lot of September heismans that don't come to for wisdom and long lasting. Yes. And every year there's somebody that we fall in love with the expectations get high, and then they play a big game and they stub their towed just a little bit. And all of a sudden everybody's like, oh, wait a minute that was just against really bad team. So I would take the field. He obviously is to me, he's the best player in college football, but I still would take the field in this because the house always wide open until big time games. So me somebody is it as simple as Dwayne Haskins and it's a one to race Pollock. I mean, first of all, he said the field or to get the field ninja, I get everybody. Okay. But be Be out. out of there. It can't just be two versus seven thousand people downtown called the stage. Isn't that big. You still got Haskins who's going to play in a bunch of big games down the stretch obviously is putting up by the way Haskins on is on pace to destroy eviscerate JT Barrett, thirty six touchdown passes. He's not gonna get to December and he's going to do that by the way he's he's gonna have fifty. Collar is going to be there. So I mean, listen, there's going to be just Herbert has had some freaky moments this year, and he's been unbelievable throughout the east. Another level two, he's point of video game, but I will take the field..

"I thought we were talking about Bama. No, he said, yeah, just no. Should be at ninety nine percent now. Notre Dame. I think they deserve a little bit of a higher ranking. I think their schedules, this is what we do this time of year. It's gets Tober like everyone else thinks they're sixteen. At the top that we like, and those other ten Pollock's talking about adding up very good, Dave loss, no chance, Virginia Tech still good football team. They went on the road and beat him. You know, Michigan is a good football team. I just watch them live last week. They are a good team. They're not great in some spots, but who's perfect. There's not a team in the country that's perfect outside of maybe Alabama and I think Notre Dame belongs in that spot. I think the percentages are probably right if they people are already saying. If they have one loss at the end of the year, they have a chance to get it. Yeah, they do. I mean, look at the rest of the country. So I think we have to keep some perspective early October. We seem to start to lose it this time of year every year, and we always look at the top at Alabama in Ohio State and all these teams like Clemson, and we go if they're gonna go undefeated and then every year Syracuse happens and every year you have a Pittsburgh every year, Ohio State got hit by the head of the frying pan to in lost thirty one cents are coming. They're, they're going to come worse. Inferior teams are going to beat some of these teams at the top, and we're going to go, oh, wait, what just happened? How does this? How does this work? What are we going to do? So don't count on anybody going undefeated at the top minus Alabama. All right, real quick. How about this? Does this Notre Dame with Ian book right now? Look like a contender a team that can actually win it that looks better than Ohio State or Alabama Pollock. Now, that book is in there and they're scoring what forty, six points a game. I think. Definitely look better if it makes me feel confident that they can make the final four. They can't win a national title. That's I don't think they're gonna win a national title. I think they can be one of those teams that are in the dance though, and there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong with saying that because I think there's a lot of teams. There's only Alabama is clear cut away from everybody else right now to me, they looks far superior. So also this about Notre Dame. I love the physicality on defense. I love the what, how hard they play in tough and discipline ofensive -ly they have a heartbeat. They have a pulse. Now they have a guy that can be a point card in distribute the ball to ten, eleven different receivers Dexter comes back at the running back spot. He can hit home run. So yes, this is a team that can one hundred percent being the final four and Notre Dame fans should be jacked that also this I'm not even going to mention names. I don't think until quarterback change was made that Notre Dame was capable of being one of four teams when we're all said and done. Positive now, I'm just saying that's the difference that one person. It's like Like the the Red Red Sox. Sox distribute. It's the same thing sixteen to one last night. You know, sixteen to one. I mean, I agree might be a sixteen to one chance for Notre Dame to go actually win the national championship. I wonder what those would be. All right. How about this one game? How David this time to discuss the Capital One fan vote, which of these one loss teams can make it Pollock to the college football playoff, which is the most dangerous out of this crew. Penn State Penn State to me if you watched the Ohio State game, they were very much in the mix. I think they also have a schedule with hosting a lot of their tough games at home and a great atmosphere, I think. And it looks the big ten doesn't look as daunting as it did before the season, their losses to state, which is a great loss Washington's loss to offer not a great loss, Texas lost Maryland, not a great lawf- LSU to Florida. Obviously, it's not a horrible loss, but it's it's going to be.

"And when I say that they're back in the big twelve, they're back in the national championship picture. Listen, we probably can only pick so many teams that are going to be in the final four only forego. I think you can put them as one of ten teams that you could possibly point to says. I would agree might get to the college football playoff. So to me, that means Texas is back are the good news this we have real big, fancy numbers ESPN research that shows are the indeed back or at least in that national championship hunt, right. Here's the big tin. Quote, unquote contenders when it comes to it, one percent, it's like dumb and dumber. So you're saying there's a chance, right? But yet they're still there. What are the cramps? You always, that's why. Here. What is wrong with that Pollock first of all, obviously the big, twelve different most conferences Oklahoma's eliminated. But if Oklahoma's the second best team, they can still play Texas for the conference championship. So that makes sense why they could still have a decent percentage. What is West Virginia done for everybody then. Got great offense. Did you wash Kansas game? Have their turn. Interceptions that will Greer had, yes. Here's the thing to everybody's patent west. Virginia's defense on the back when they play a team with an offense. We'll see if west Virginia's defense is actually any good. We haven't seen that yet because they haven't played, but then put NC state to learn a lot. Texas to me has a much better shot than West Virginia. They're getting better. The defense is getting better. Tony Gibson, I think is one of the more underrated defensive coordinators. And I only say that because what he's doing from a personnel perspective and then what he's getting in terms of results pretty impressive to me at least, but which is a nice way of saying they don't have any players. Exactly. I love you man. Texans. Football team. When you look at offense, defensively special teams in West Virginia, and now we've got the head to head. So why that Oklahoma's got a much better shot to make the playoffs. And then Oklahoma does I Texas game Peter have the highest percentage, but I'm not. I'm not. I don't punch those numbers. Well, remember guys, the mountaineers do travel to Allston here couple of weeks. So looking forward to that game as well. I d like can we get you some numbers, politics, maybe like how about these? This? Does anything throw you for a loop here is when you look at the top five, there seems to be a Clair's out of the bam. Ninety nine. Because you got LSU you still have Mississippi State all burned decides Jerry. Speed bumps. Those are called speed bumps Peter, thank you. So who should be ninety? Nine? I mean, is it?

"mike stoops" Discussed on College Football Live
"Go to college football, live Peter burns David Pollack and Todd mcshay. You guys don't even get a chance to argue yet because we're gonna get right into it with big news out of Norman Oklahoma, where Mike stoops is out he gone. That's right. As a defensive coordinator on the heels of the forty eight to forty five loss that the Sooners had to the Texas longhorns roughened big deal will now be the new d. coordinator, hey, Lincoln Riley, how hard was this decision. Difficult. But at the same time I make the best decisions for this program. You know, for this team right now, everybody in that room included felt ownership in this. I mean, it ain't DEM sharing all Mike fault. You know, it's it's my fault. It's ever coaching that runes fault that's ever player that rooms fault. You know, we, we all own it. I Pollock who should own this. What did you make the decision to jettison stoops outright midseason. I didn't know if it would happen. And I say that because remember Bob stoops was the coach, Mike stoops's his brother, and obviously there's connections there. Lincoln Riley taken over for Bob stoops. I just didn't know about the dynamic won't happen. Listen. The one thing is very clear Todd, as we've watched Oklahoma last several years, they've wasted some great years with some ridiculous offense. Not just good offense. Ridiculous next level game changing offense. The defense has never caught up. Something's Runamuck. Something's been amiss, and they need to figure it out. And this might be the first step going in that direction because it's broken. It is broken. And I seventy five points in the last two games and having a buy week and coming off the loss to Texas rival. Obviously, it gives like an opportunity to make this decision, and I just wonder, I don't know anything about it. Haven't talked to Lincoln about it, but I just wonder, was he backed this year because of the tie in with with Bob, and because he got the job from Bob stoops and so on and so forth. So. Some point you have to make really tough decisions. He made a very difficult one, but I think it's the right thing for the program. I completely agree with what he said. I've got to do what's best for this program, and that's what he did. They get a little time to recalibrate where Ruffin McNeill they get a buy week and then play TCU. How about the Victor of the Red River rivalry game, which is Texas. Todd is Joe tests finally, right in saying, Texas is back in what is back for them. Joe tests every week at Virk every week, Texas. And we all kind of laugh. We say, because every weeks people start to think that the Texas is back. But you know, Tom, Herman, I, I look at the whole situation and last year they lose to Maryland right out the gate. They actually had four of six losses were within one score. They were better football team that I think seven and six record indicated this year they come out and right, Texas is going to be back this year. They're underrated they're top fifteen team, and then they lose to Maryland and everyone quits on. They can't beat Maryland for whatever. And Maryland's, okay, football team. But this team is getting better and better and they have some quality wins. I'm not saying that their top ten team what is back back as competing for national championship. But I do think that they're well on their way. And if you're Texas fan, you've got to be really impressed with what Tom Herman has done to get them to where they are now compared to where they were when he took over the organization. If you will. I, I told you a couple of weeks ago after I saw them play Kansas state, especially early. I said, they are back and I picked to beat Oklahoma for that reason. They haven't identity again. They have, they have players. They've had players of the last several years, but offense they've got some great complimentary pieces with little Jordan slot in Johnson on the outside who's a matchup freaking nightmare. And then you've got the quarterback that can run it obviously with Ellen and kind of bring that physicality don't have on the offense of line or at the running back spot. So I think I think Texas is back..

"It always the Pac twelve, but it's just been a while. I mean, it's really you couldn't really say that at all this decade because this is this is Texas. I or best five in one their best start since nine and really. Oh, nine. Was the last time? Texas was Nash. Relevant so should be going down the stretch because you got those two and not Oklahoma is not going to fade away. It was three point loss on a last second field goal. Kyla Murray was again. I mean, he may heat. I really had a couple mistakes, but he was still sensational, especially on that long touchdown run during the fourth quarter rally, you know, they're going to continue to be factor west, Virginia's clearly a factor. I think the winner of this week's TCU Texas Tech game could get back in the mix. So I was state showed that they've got a pulse this past week, so competitive conference, but with Oklahoma, I mean, I think when Lincoln Riley became the head coach last summer. Is he wasn't overhaul his staff, three months for the season. He did bring in roping meal as his last assistant, but it's just been this this, you know, not unspoken, but kinda. I mean, spoken subplot was what was going to happen with Mike stoops because they end the day, you look back at Oklahoma all the success. They've had these past several years and twenty their twenty seven in two in the big twelve into that game. They've done it without great defenses, and that's clearly been their weakness. They haven't been putting star defensive players into the NFL and it just felt like he's got to get rid of Mike stoops's some point. But how awkward is that gonna be because Bob stoops handpicked him to be a successor, but I just think the performance this weekend gave him gave him an hour basically. Yeah, I agree. And I think there was a lot of honesty, a lot of pressure on Mike stoops for a while. Just there's a lot of players in the program are indebted to him. But I think at the same point district been. Then I think one of the things you would hear a little bit within the conference over the last couple of years is that people had a good feel on on opponents had a good feel on Mike stoops where if you got him with this, then you knew his temperament, you know, you could go back to this because of how he might respond to it or certain things like that. And I thought they, you would hear that. Sometimes things we're really predictable and maybe that got the best of them, they definitely have players like they don't have it. You look at that team now, I think they got a bunch NFL guys in it. We'll see how this goes going forward. This is this is only for the rest of the years. No guaranteeing Ruffin McNeill will be the defensive coordinator in two thousand nineteen. A couple of things about him. He was the best defensive coordinator, Mike, Leach hat in his decade attack. He simplify things a little bit from his predecessors guys played hard for them. I mean, there's no coach that I think players like more than rough them McNeil. He's just one of these really affable big heart guys. He and Lincoln Riley are very, very close. As you mentioned that. The assistant Lincoln brought with him. I remember talking to him him being Ruffin McNeill right after Lincoln got the heck got promoted into that coach job and they have such a bond where he wasn't planning on leaving Virginia for any job, but when Lincoln called them because Lincoln had turned down a bunch of bigger paying jobs to stay with him when he was his offense coordinator.

I mean, I don't. I don't know if I know they're secondary's thin and we've been saying right, like I guess maybe this is what what the great takeaway is here when you go. I don't know this result, so weird. You can't actually take anything moving forward. I don't think so. I think you can actually take some stuff out of this for Virginia Tech moving forward because it's pretty obvious this at this point that initially there were concerns about depth in the secondary right. Okay, that's fine. They did a bang-up job against Florida state. It turns out that data may have been misleading that may not have been the test of your secondary or defense anyone in your defense that you thought it might be going into the season. Then they just play William and Mary and had a game postponed, right? So I think we all kind of slept on, hey, maybe there are serious issues in the secondary there, but but but you wouldn't have guessed Old Dominion would be the like, yes, no right identified the cause. But that's like saying like, oh yes..
