Discover the Untold Influence of Lincoln on Natural Law
"Delights of your book mere natural law is that you referred to Lincoln and quote Lincoln a lot. And what an extraordinary mind he had. There's just no question about it. Tremendous clarity in how he put forth these ideas you were just referencing one of them. But Lincoln seems to have understood all of this. And it's part of why he didn't appeal to religious arguments against slavery. He thought maybe we can reach more people just from the common sense argument. But you referred to the James Wilson institute. Where is that and how can people find out about that? Well, it's named after one of the premier minds among the American founders. James Wilson said, if we have natural rights, when do they begin? And his answer was as soon as we begin to be, which is why the common law cassius protection and the human being from the first stirrings in the womb. So we named it after James Wilson. We're in Washington, D.C.. We do seminars out there, but we have the James Wilson institute. We have a website, we have a journal called anchoring truths, but we put up the articles I do, but also the articles done by my dear colleague and friend Gerald Bradley Notre-Dame. And many of our former students who are formed now with us, younger lawyers who form with us now the college you might say of this James Lewis and institute, people who want to make this argument and bring it on now into the next generation. They'll be there after I'm gone. And they're my hope for what for this project.

"Wisdom won. Notre-Dame's signature spire was a fairly recent addition. Images of the cathedral from the mid 1800s show her without a spire, and in an advanced state of decay. The cathedral was in great disrepair, was it not? It was about to collapse, but of neglect, not a fire. There were even proposals to demolish Notre-Dame before the cathedral crumbled on its own. Instead, the French government hired a young architect, named violet le duc, he created that famous spire. So you are rebuilding the spire exactly as violet le duc. Yes. Are you using his original drawings? We were lucky, he said, because it was extremely well documented. We have the drawings of violet le duc, the sketches, the surveys we have everything needed to be able to remake it. A thousand French oak trees were felled for the new spire. Then fine cut by carpenters in eastern France in other workshops around the country, the cathedral's organ, the largest in France, and many of its stained glass windows were restored. How many workers and craftsmen do you have on this project? If we take into account all of the people in France, it's about 1000 people. On the Plaza in front of Notre-Dame, a huge tent has been erected, where stone cutters and sculptors are recreating gothic gargoyles and adornments damaged in the fire. Philippe Villeneuve supervises every detail. I'll make them put their fingers on the layers of the original sculpture, he said, and then on the layer their sculpting. So he wants you to feel it. Not just looking. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And that works? Yeah, I think too. Daniel Leblanc is just 23 years old, sculpting and chiseling to recreate a floral detail carved hundreds of years ago. We tried to remake things identically, she said, but we are also trying to understand the intention of the original sculptures, so we look at the traces left by their tools. We were given rare access to the painstaking restoration of Notre-Dame as workers and artisans revived the cathedral's exterior. And her interior. Oh my God. The cathedral's great rose windows have been meticulously cleaned. Look at this. And every inch of stone coated with latex, which, when peeled away, leaves the surface gleaming. We found restorers, Matilda mayor, an odd messini, working on painted stone sculptures, depicting scenes from the life of Christ. How old is this? Adults that are going to become this part of the cathedral, she said, was built at the beginning of the 14th century. These sculptures are medieval. The restorers are carefully wiping every surface with small cotton swabs, dipped in a water based cleaning solution. So I think you have to have a lot of patience. Yes. Yes, she says you have to be calm and know that it will take time. But it's a pleasure. You can see she's wiping away the centuries. A 600 ton maze of scaffolding has been built inside Notre-Dame to support all the work, especially the rebuilding of the spire. General Georges land took us up through it two thirds of the way on a construction elevator. We reached the top, climbing steps and ladders. This is incredible. We were standing 100 feet above the cathedral floor, in exactly the spot where the flaming spire collapsed. Four years ago, there was nothing here, but a vast hole. The drama took place here. And we have to rebuild the vault of a transept for spire will be there. 66 meters, high. At the top of the old 200 foot spire set a copper sculpture of a rooster, the symbol of the French people, the day after the fire, Philippe Villeneuve founded on a lower roof, a bit mangled but miraculously untouched by the flames. It has been left as it was found, and will be put on display in the restored cathedral. Can I tell you, Villeneuve says that I plan to put a new rooster on top of a new spire one year to the day before the reopening of the cathedral. There will still be scaffolding, but the frame of the spire will again be in the sky of Paris. And the spire will rest. On this four pillars you see here, you see? We magnificent. Magnificent, yes, for the glory of gold and France. Preparing tonight's story, we were reminded of the role Notre-Dame, a soaring prayer in stone, has played in the life of Paris, and all of France. Our own houses of prayer are as often prayers in brick or wood, as of granite or limestone, but they are every bit as vital to their communities. Houses of prayer are often houses of refuge for the hungry, houses of hospitality, for the addicted the alcoholic, and the abused. In small towns and big cities in immigrant communities and among people in spiritual need, our churches and synagogues are mosques and temples, grand or simple, are our own Notre dames.

States consider banning cosmetics containing PFAS
"More states are considering banning cosmetics containing forever chemicals. I'm Lisa dwyer. A growing number of states are considering bans on cosmetics and other consumer products that contain a group of synthetic potentially harmful chemicals known as pfas or forever chemicals. This week, the Vermont state Senate gave final approval to legislation that would prohibit manufacturers and suppliers from selling or distributing any cosmetics or menstrual products that have the potentially dangerous chemicals intentionally added to them. A study by university of Notre-Dame researchers released in 2021 found that more than half of the cosmetics sold in the United States and Canada contained a toxic industrial compound associated with serious health conditions, researchers tested more than 230 commonly used cosmetics and found that 56% of foundations and eye products 48%

Author Dr. Thomas Williams Exposes the Plight of Christians
"Guys, I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast a new guest, doctor Thomas D Williams, he's the author of an excellent book that I just read. It's called the coming Christian persecution. He's also the Rome bureau chief for Breitbart News. He's taught at the center for ethics and culture at the university of Notre-Dame. He teaches theology at St. John's university is written a bunch of books, he's also got so many other credentials. He speaks multiple languages. He's a wine sommelier. I don't even know where to start with your with your bio here. Doctor Williams, but welcome and thanks for joining me. Your book is unbelievably. Well, it's both timeless and it's timely. I've just been talking on the podcast about this latest grotesque incident, mass shooting at a Nashville Christian school, and it seems very interesting because in the book you talk about how there is a kind of widespread public denial of the anti Christian bigotry behind these kinds of actions and we're seeing it in the media coverage. The media coverage is I think I just saw a headline in Reuters, former student shoots up Christian school. That's it. No reference to the motive, no reference to the transgender perpetrator or domestic terrorist. So clearly some of the stuff you're talking about in the book and you cover history, you cover the rest of the world, but it's all too relevant to what's happening right now in the west and specifically in the United States. Well, unfortunately, you're exactly right the next. This is what we're seeing on a daily or weekly basis. And it's happening all over the place. It is only really deniable to those who are choosing to be blind to it because it is growing at an accelerated pace. Tucker Carlson last night on Fox News, the title for his segment on this was the trans movement is targeting Christians. And he made a very, you know, a very cogent case for the fact that this is something that we're seeing. There have been a number of these incidents this is not the first. And it's also part of the rhetoric that they're using, the Christians really are looked upon as the enemies

On this week's AP Religion Roundup, Paris' iconic cathedral prepares to re-open, and ancient runes reveal the Norse god Odin's deep history.
"On this week's AP religion roundup, Paris's iconic cathedral prepares to reopen, and ancient runes revealed a Norse God Odin's deep history. French officials say the reconstruction of Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris is going fast enough to allow its reopening to visitors and faithful at the end of 2024. That's less than 6 years after a fire ravaged its roof. France's culture minister rima Abdul Malik says that they still have work to do after the visitors return. Reopening to the public in December 2024, it doesn't mean that all the renovation will be over. There will still be some renovation works going on in 2020 5, but the cathedral will be open to the public. Authorities have made the choice to rebuild the 12th century masterpiece of gothic architecture, the way it was before. That includes recreating a more recent 315 foot spire. The army general in charge of the colossal reconstruction said the iconic spire will gradually start reappearing above the monument this year. He also says that the reopening means that Notre-Dame's archbishop will restart services at the cathedral. Every day, about a thousand workers endeavored to restore everything from the stonework to the stained glass to bring back Notre-Dame. Scientists have identified the oldest known reference to the Norse God Odin on a gold disk unearthed in western Denmark in 2020, a pendant with the inscription reading he is Odin's man, was in one of the largest troves of gold treasure ever found in Denmark. It's one of the best executed runen descriptions led I have ever seen. Lisbeth Emer is a runologist with the national museum in Copenhagen. She says the runes are evidence that Odin was worshiped as early as the 5th century. At least 150 years earlier than previously thought. We have had some indications that he might have been in the conscience of people earlier, but this is the first solid evidence. Experts think the cash was buried 15th centuries ago to either hide it from enemies, or as a tribute to appease the gods. I'm Walter ratliff

The University of Notre Dame Has Gone FULL Woke
"There's a Catholic university I just read during the break, saint Mary's university and Notre-Dame. Which has denied TPUSA a chapter on campus, turning point USA. Because they have said that there were only two sexes. So that is now considered un Catholic by a Catholic university. When I read that something as Christian Jewish or Catholic, I have no idea what it stands for anymore. Does it actually stand for Christianity Catholicism? Judaism, like the National Council of Jewish women, the only thing Jewish about them is that it's composed of Jews. But in terms of values, it might as well be the ACLU. Or the southern poverty law center or some other left wing organization.

"Need to ask my wife and we just moved, and he was like, no, apologize to Joanna, who's my wife, and tell I'm sorry to try to do this to you guys and make you move again and so from that point I had to go into the recruit's home and all these things are going through my head as I'm sitting here with this group. Like, what is going on right now? And then by that time, as I'm driving home, you know, my phone starts to ring. You know, from I talk to people from the AD to our players to people that are involved with the hiring and it's just, you know, the 80s and first things, are you interested in being the next head coach here? And I said, absolutely, who's not? You know? And that was just an initial conversation and it just started happening and you saw the people were calling it you had to talk to you had to do the interviews and the last thing was obviously to interview with the president father Jenkins and he was over in Rome and it was just all a blur. It was. It was just no sleep. You can't sleep. You're just on a adrenaline rush and, you know, I'll never forget when Jack sorber called me and said, I found my next head coach and it was a moment I'll never forget. But man, it's now look at it, you know? And now look at you. And you're the head coach Notre-Dame. And how cool is that, man? And what an opportunity is to serve these guys into help these guys reach their goals. And I won't take it for granted. So Marcus, hey, we can hear the passion for the players, especially and for the people coming through. I'm curious as to the football side is one thing, but the Notre-Dame job I've always heard is different because there is so much additional on your plate. You have all these guys who have chosen to be with you. They could have gone, Tommy Reese. You know, Mike Nelson, a bunch of other guys, could have left Lance could have left. They wanted to stay and be part of that program with you. Who else do you lean on maybe who is not on your staff? Maybe not necessarily your family, who is like, okay, these are people it's like, until you're the head coach, you probably don't know what you don't know, right? So who are the people who kind of started? Because even as gym trouser was obviously a wildly successful head coach in FCS and then Ohio State, but even as big as Ohio State was, it's probably not the same thing as being a head coach at Notre-Dame. So who are the guys who have been good resources and you think will be good resources for you to kind of help you on this journey? Yeah, you know a lot of people have reached out. A lot of people are willing to help. But you got to be careful who the advice you seek and for me it's the two people that are closest to me is obviously Luke fickle being one and he's extremely busy right now with getting ready for Alabama in the playoffs. And so, you know, I've talked to coach pick a few times, but really the other guy is Jim trusts in, you know, it's funny because Koch stress has been in the same my entire life that I've known him in that he always has this great answer, but never gives you an answer. Coach, what do you do here? I remember the first day they asked me, hey, what do you want to do about media? How do you want to open up the media? And I'm like, what? These are things I've never thought about. How do you control the media coming to practice? So what I call coast press HRS, how did you decide when you let the media in? What are you doing with the media? And he gave me this elaborate answer and it ended up being no answer. It ended up being trust your instincts. That's what it was like covering him all those years. We always joked that he'll tell you all the different ways to screw a lightbulb in, but we'll never just give you a lightbulb, right? And so he was the same way. But you know what? His greatest advice is lean on your captain's lean on no seniors because this is their program. And that's what I've done, man. I lean on these captains. And the guys that have bled for Notre-Dame and because you said it early, they talked about Tommy and Lance and Coachella and all these guys assigned to come back and it happens for me, I believe that it happens to be about Notre-Dame more than it does Marcus Freeman. And I'm glad these guys want to work with me and trust me, but Notre-Dame is special. Notre-Dame, the community Notre-Dame, the university, is a place that you want to be affiliated with affiliated with and you don't know what may be until you get here. This is a place that will change your life if you truly commit to it. And it's exciting the future of this place. It's exciting for me to be the leader here, but it's also exciting man to see where this place is going to take us all. So sell us on why, as you know that if there's a knock still on nerd aim, I mean, these guys have won a lot of games. They've been to the playoff. But then when they face Alabama or when they face Clemson in the playoff, you know, it's not close. But you guys clearly feel you're going to win a national championship. So for the public that says, oh, we don't think it's ever going to happen. Why is that possible at our name? Well, I don't think it's going to happen this year. And we don't deserve it this year, right? And you had an opportunity to be 12 and you lost one unbelievable sentence and that he team and we finished 5th in the country in the regular season and that's where we deserve to be. And but I think it's a process to getting to that point. And I believe that you can do it here. I believe that with the right talent with continuing to enhance the culture. And as I tell these guys, it's a culture right now that we're 11 and one. We've been a playoff sort of past three years, but it's really little things that we can show them and that we can do that are very intentional that I think that will take us to that point where we can you know what we can break through. We can beat the Alabama's or beat the climates or beat the teams that right now are at the mountaintop. And so it's going to be a process and it's going to be very intentional. It's going to be trial and error, right? And it's not, I wish I just said this is the formula we're going to do it and we're going to be national championships in a year two years. But no, it's going to be about working hard. It's going to be about getting that talent to get the best players in the country. It takes work. It doesn't take a BS sales pitch. It takes work hard work. And we as a staff happen to understand it, we have to work. And we have to develop these relationships. We have to convince these kids that have so many different options that you know what Notre-Dame is the best place for you. And that takes a lot of work and I think our staff is up for the challenge. You know, I know I'm up for the challenge and I want to lead this charge at getting those best players in the country, but also understanding that with the guys we have now with the guys we're bringing in, it's continuing to develop that team that environment, that culture that's going to get us to the top. Hey, Marcus, we know you got to run. I got one last question for you, though. You coached against Cincinnati to help develop those players. I mean, I talked to bunch NFL scouts who think there's a bunch of real dudes there, not just cornerbacks, not receiver here at edge rushers. Make the case why this team you would not shock you that they could win a national title win at all based on the talent that they have. Well, I think a lot of people, when you get ready to play in Alabama, you haven't mentality of oh shoot, man. We're gonna be outmatched before we even walk on the field. The one thing about Cincinnati's football team is that they will believe that they can compete with anybody in the country. And that's what they'll do when they play out of them..

"Don't know for sure. Like you said, it's not an unrealistic scenario. I mean, I don't think Alabama's gonna get it in as a two lost team at this point. So all you need is bailer to beat Oklahoma state or Cincinnati loses to Houston or Michigan loses to Iowa. Any of those three? No names in the playoff probably with an interim coach. That's insane. Could you imagine if Notre-Dame, which has gotten blown out on big stages close to the playoff? And somehow they get in and they leave and win one game in the playoff much less win two. That might be, you know, it's weird and I don't know if Notre-Dame typically as a school that obviously has a huge fan base, but also has a lot of people just are inclined to root against them. I suspect there'd be a lot of people rooting for Notre-Dame because they're wrong. Because, well, I don't know, just because I think, you know, this is, you know, this is the players really get jerked around here more than anything else. You know? And so I think there's going to be a lot of people who probably will be rooting for them. This may be a mood point. They may not get into the playoff anyway. But I just think the aspect of like, I remember thinking that this came up actually today at the USC. It didn't come out the press conference, but it came up with a conversation I had to somebody where, you know, that bedlam game was really close and back and forth. If Lincoln Riley's team, Oklahoma, it won. Lincoln Riley's probably not the head coach at USC, or he's definitely not the head coach right now. Matt Campbell might be the head coach at UFC right now. So it's kind of crazy how it plays this plays out like this, but man, Notre-Dame and Brian Kelly, it's just like, and then, you know, like I think our colleagues both Pete Sampson and Matt fortuna had the text message that Brian Kelly basically sent them and at one point I got a text from a head coach I know who basically was like, did he really break up with them over text? And I wrote back, you know, I kind of included the tweet from, I think it was fortuna. And he was like, man, this is smacks of Todd Graham. And I was like, those are four words, no coach ever wants to be associated. We did that coaching carousel series a couple months ago. We could have done a whole one just on messy exits.

Because last year the offense all they could do is hit the explosive and then all of a sudden floor state kind of gash them on the ground. He made some slight tweaks in the toledo game. Couple more tweaks against purdue and then last week against wisconsin. We're like he's got a completely adapt and adjusted to this wisconsin office. And i think he did that pretty well. The badgers never ran into a box. With less than six dame defenders right. There was some four by four stack being played. And so i think. When i look at this i would expect a defense that cincinnati hasn't seen yet this year but i i think the key here is cincinnati has to be able to run and force freemen to dedicate more to the box. And then you'll see desmond ritter off play action be able to strike some of those crossers some of the deep posts and if they can't run then things get a little bit. Tricky if you look at some of the metrics on paper cincinnati should be able to run their third and epa porush. Notre dame's fifty four th and epa. Porush obviously remove the f. Issue game when guys are getting acclimated to a new scheme and freemen's figuring out what is guys actually do best to put them in position to succeed. Things probably look a little bit. Different there Since the opener. I don't think freemans going to send a ton of bullets here. I'd expect the front seven to do decently against cincinnati's ground game even though again on paper you can make the case. Cincinnati shows out here. I think he's actually gonna use hamilton to play in the middle of the field. Maybe a little bit more of that linebacker role so he can spy on ritter. What's difficult for me is is notre dame's played about two good quarters of football. But i'm also not as impressed with cincinnati. I thought it would be. And so you're sitting here in a game at a virtual pick. Notre dame's won twenty six games at home straight. I believe our core number made notre dame minus one current line cincinnati about one and a half. There isn't a ton of here in the number. I think there could be a little bit of a battle going on the side as well. But i can certainly see why the fifty two did not last on the. It's so interesting when you look at this bearcats team and you talk about the leadership that desmond ritter brings. his body. language wasn't exactly the best in the win against indiana very demonstrative on the sidelines. We'll see if he can maintain a bit more of a level. Even keel in this and you talk about the bearcats weapons or lack thereof on a major level. Jerome ford is running the ball out of the backfield and clearly. They're belco but you look at their receiver group. I mean nobody on. This team has more than nine catches on the early season. And it's not as though cincinnati needed to show a ton in a dominant win against miami of ohio. They did after race early deficit against murray state. But you figure you were going to get the ball to your playmakers by hooker by crook in the win against indiana. They were able to separate themselves. Mainly because the defense force a couple of turnovers and held indiana short on downs but should be one hell of a game. And i know pain. So many people talking about cincinnati This is the biggest game in school history. 'cause if they win they would control their own destiny into the college football playoff before we get to that point. Let's pump the brakes and see if they can go into hostile territory and knock off an irish team that i think a lot of people discounted before the season and a win here. Suddenly we're talking about notre dame exceeding early season expectations roaming. This is the biggest game for them though. I mean for the irish you kind of note for cincinnati. Oh for sure. I mean you go down the list of who they've played in some of the meaningful games and i don't think there's a combination of program that they've faced in the upper echelon where it means so much to the potential future and there is some interesting elements here. We kind of talked about that. Familiarity brian kelly was at cincinnati yet in the late. Two thousand eight two thousand nine. I think was his last year there. Any obviously plucks defensive coordinator. Marcus freeman from the bearcats. This past off season and then freeman took. Mike mickens the db coach with them. And you can't fault freeman for going to a larger program. That's probably paying him a three acts but there is some bad blood here and i know you do as much reading as i do. But some of the bearcats players have come out and ben. Oh it personally opened this week. Yeah i mean to sean pace flat out said this week. I don't think it'll be weird going coach freeman. I just think you shouldn't have left. So now we gotta go out there and show them. Why shouldn't have left so there is some bad blood here. It wasn't all pots of golden rainbows on the way out for marcus freeman. You like a little bit of that side story going into a game. That's going to have Meaningful ramifications for both these programs when you look at the upcoming schedules that both of these teams will face should be one hell of a game. Two thirty eastern coming to you from south bend. Paint a pair of undefeated teams in the big twelve will do battle under the lights in stillwater. Where oklahoma state plays host to the baylor bears oklahoma state a three and a half point favorite fan duel sportsbook total in this game forty seven and a half down a shade from where it opened. When you look at oklahoma state they won the meeting between these two teams forty two to three a season ago. State hasn't started five. Since two thousand fifteen back then will. They actually started the campaign teno. Meanwhile you look at what baylor has been able to do. I think one of the bigger surprises. So far this season upsetting iowa state last week. But anyone who digs into the box score there sees the bears were relatively fortunate and opportunistic for a lack of a better term but one of the bigger surprises and questions you had about coming into the year was what this offense was going to look like. Bohannon has been a pleasant surprise against the slate of inferior opponents up until the win against iowa state but now going into hostile territory against the defense. That's been downright nasty allowing a grand total of seven points in the second. Half of wins against boise state. Two weeks ago on the road and last week against kansas state in their own building. That's the key..

"They've won twenty two twenty five games. Two of those three losses came back to back weeks against memphis last year. Sugar bowl game against georgia would be the other one. And when you look at notre dame. Hey brian kelly knocking new rodney from the purchase. The winningest head coach irish football history speaks a lot and a big part of that is because notre dame is one twenty five straight in south bend since a loss to number fifteen georgia back in september of two thousand seventeen fifty three and eight and their past sixty one home games. But this a little bit of uncharted territory with the bearcats. A modest road favourite knowing the high level of familiarity between fickle and his former defensive coordinator. We got a newt. Rock knee trent early on a wednesday morning new. Hey he was one of the greatest that there was. I had no idea. Honestly until i was watching the game against wisconsin and this is probably on me that brian kelly was going to become the winning his head. Coach and notre dame football history. You can make the case honestly that he might be the most underappreciated head coach and all of college football these days. I completely agree. Just hasn't gotten over the hump of like beating alabama clemson which nobody has has yeah correct. Yeah now in this matchup. It's always difficult trying to find the edge when there's a ton of familiarity. It's really difficult to assess that. And sometimes you know. I think it's the inverse of what others believe and for me in this game. That familiarity might mean marcus freeman noses former defense inside now right. He knows where the holes in the blind spots are. And that's what the bearcats defense right with players. That marcus freeman recruited. He knows those guys. Tendencies inside now. And so i think he might actually help the irish offense. The question i think is is notre. Dame's offense good enough to even attack. Some of the spots where. Marcus freeman tells them that his former defense is vulnerable. And we're still uncertain with who starts at quarterback for the irish jack cohn if he's healthy but for how long based on production if cones not healthy is pine. Is it a more mobile tyler. Buckner or mix of both so rather than try to figure that out here at six. Am on a wednesday morning. Let's go to the other side of the ball for for the key factor and it's it's mortgage freeman against his former offense and quarterback in desmond. Ridder cincinnati's offense. When i watched them. They kind of are what they are you know. They want to run the ball. The weapons outsider improved so they are throwing a little bit more crossers. They're taking bigshots downfield. It's clear i think. Desmond raiders ben at cincinnati for about eight years now. But there has timmy. Chang plan yes. Yeah i just feel like he's been there forever but he has made you know whether it's you the fifth year the six year of the ninth year. He had improvements in his passing game and albeit. It's small sample this season. He's really improved under pressure. He'd been a disaster under pressure. The last few years so yeah. He's excelled in that area. I would expect in a game of this magnitude that you see him. Run a little bit more. There's been some rumors that pickles ben town like. Hey you know we need you. You're vital to this playoff push. Let's kind of sit back a little bit more used the arm. Don't take off as much but in game this large when you look at the preceding schedule. It's like you know balls to the wall here. Anything you can pick up a first down or score some points. So i would expect desmond. Ridder's legs to be a little bit more in play for this game where it gets interesting. Is we know. Cincinnati coming off a bye. I would assume that we're gonna see a wrinkle here but You know again cincinnati's offense kind of is what it is. The one thing that marcus freeman has done exceptionally well. This season is that by week could be negated a little bit..

Obviously you lose as a seven point road favorite and michigan. State's come out like gangbusters winning on the road at northwestern as dog even otherwise sharp money there. We've had to make some adjustments and you know for three straight weeks. Michigan state has has seen in uptick in our power numbers now. Nebraska has also seen an uptick in the last few weeks. I believe we bump them off top my head about one and a half points for the performance when or two points for the performance at oklahoma but ultimately if you have a situation here where michigan state is half as good as you've bump them or seventy five percent as good as you bump them. There's going to be value in this number and obviously from the off season there's been a pretty large adjustment when you open three and a half is pretty telling tomato.

We haven't been shy about sharing our disdain for miami michigan state of course was in seventeen. Seventeen game they use a three touchdown explosion in the third quarter a fourth quarter.

"So let's start off with you. Tell me a little bit about how you started. I thinking about this project. You've created kind of similar pieces based on bells and buddhist temples in kyoto and the metlife tower in new york. And then because i've done a lot of work in lundu and what. I discovered that the elizabeth tower big ben was going to be closed for renovations. I had the idea of doing sound saudis. With the four o'clock bells as a live streaming sorta sound piece about the silencer bigger and. I'd gone so far as to really discuss it with bbc radio. Three's who are very interested in it. But i couldn't really get anywhere with the bureaucracy of the palestine starts to get permission to really do like that and i was talking to a friend of mine in paris and i was telling her about this idea with big balance she said get about big bend. The most interesting silent bells in the world are right here. In paris the ten bells of notre dame and then i started researching this and realize that the belts hours essentially were not damaged in the fire is some lead contamination dust in the bells hours with physical shorts for the belts hours kind of remained intact and the ten bills or they're hanging waiting to be rung and so i decided to get a focus my energy untrained to do this but doing this during the pandemic without having physical access to people and and notre dame itself was very challenging from san francisco so for the last year to this project the idea for this project because became my dream and became like a form of a self therapy in a way because i was really good for me to have an incredible dream and vision of some things have put my energy into and i realized it was really a risky to put all my energy into trying to do this because there was no certainty off. This could happen. And how weren't they damaged. What were they protected by the by the bell tower or they were out of the way. The daily damaged occurred in the bill to ours was really smoking national lead contamination. I mean two axes. The belts hours. And i had to take contamination trading class where this special protective suit. The other thing. That was amazing. Just as visual experience being the belltower the balconies and terraces of the bells hours. I had close up views. All these remarkable gargoyles. That's a fun tree so that was so interesting to get close to these gargoyles. Photograph the yeah. It must have been daunting especially for a site. Like notre dom that is such a symbol for country and for the heritage community and to have seen the destruction that happened to it from the fire and the rebuilding efforts and how much people have come together. Must have been a very difficult. Thought to even broach it from that perspective. I think my journey in trying to do this embarrass actually began with immediate curator at sf. Momo who. I've worked with a lot and asked him. Do you know any any interesting media. Curator's pro approach and he. He was very kind and introduced me to to media curator's popular eliza and feel bits and they were very interested in the idea but they were also kind of daunted by how to do something like this. I mean the first issues how to gain access. Yeah i was gonna ask what was what was that process like they were very interested in opening and there a guy in a former French cultural attache who's based in brazil. Who got interested in the project so through the central pompidou people this guy brazil. They connected me to a couple of people the ministry of culture who were very helpful. They did email introductions to me to then Secretary general restoration and many horn and that introduction over a period of time eventually led me to be able to actually have a meeting a month ago but a real turning point in that process which really got people to take this seriously. Is that the most important. Cultural institution in France sounding contemporary music is here calm and they completely got behind the idea but also at the same time there was this group of researchers with an ongoing research project about the acoustic history of nature dot com and so because of that and the combination of those sciences and ear com eventually got taken seriously with wanting to do this and they're also started some international interested in the project. Because the idea is this would be alive streaming work media art. The idea is very simple. I want to install a network of sensors. On each of notre dame's ten bells and create a livestream. Work of arts out of that that would go to ear com initially and then eventually had the ability to travel anywhere in the world is alive. String work of art so there have been ongoing discussions with different institutions about this. Was it difficult getting permission to kind of go physically into the site you know yes hugely difficult. It took a year a year and a half and kind of contacting the upper echelons of the heritage rolled in paris in everywhere. It was them a chest. It was again mateus. There were many days were. There was a voice inside of me bill. You're crazy you know. We're putting all this energy into this and you have no idea that you're going to do this. And it just gave me something to dream about. During the pandemic couldn't travel anywhere and it was really good for my soul in a way to have this vision that i could think about. And then you know when i was back there finally in july actually having the meeting and then actually accessing the notre. I'm worksite. I had a hard time distinguishing reality from fantasy cause for so long this has been a fantasy and a dream and then to actually be there physically in the presence of these bills manual belli's photo view the bells bigger than you are. I mean you just kind of get. Lost solanki yeah. It's kind of like a goliath that you're that you're standing underneath. It was sitting bitch inside the bill under so you know. But then there's you know there's nine other bells there's issues about how you saw network and wire network in this medieval belt all these kind of practical where the nurture dom people at all nervous about you kind of installing equipment on the bells or you said the bells were in decent condition so it those are decent conditions. I think it was just a lot of sort of practical technical issues. To kind of solve and purpose of the trip by making in september is really to sort this all out. I've got great people on the ground in paris. you know. I've hired a project manager. Who comes out of somebody. I worked with years ago at the tate. Modern when i did this millennium bridge peace he worked for an engineering company called arab and so he he somebody who really understood what i was doing and speaking of arab one of the amazing people in paris that i'm working with is a sound engineer. Who's a professor at. The sorbonne named brian cats who came of europe and one of the things. He's been doing. His part of his official could research is to read virtual acoustic model of the acoustics of notre dame as it had been before the fire. And what. I'm hoping to do in the month of september is to actually. Maybe the industry temporary electoral actually installed a hall sensor network on the bells. And get that going live partly to actually have a chance to access the sounds and have a chance to work with them. Live you want to send your comments. Also possible be able to access to my studio and also having the real sound of ten bills this really useful for me as i speak to other museums.

That's our super bowl this year. Six and six and a bowl game. But if you can show this marked improvement and actually beat notre dame with those kids in attendance who love the atmosphere can change everything. Hey every now and again a programme needs that win like you said a proud program to kind of show that they're back on the up-tick florida state's experienced a couple of down years a lot of optimism. Not only that. I hear from you. But also reading in terms of the way. Mike is gradually changing the culture last season dalton unfortunate hand with the kovic situation no on campus recruiting visits and a variety of other things that were working against the seminal rebuild. Knowing it's gonna take a little while to get to clemson's level as far as acc relevance now for me pain. When i look at this game. I think the most intriguing matchup will be on the other side of the ball with notre dame's defense matched up against florida state's offense. We'll get to florida state's quarterback conundrum injustice second but the irish of course bringing arguably the number one defensive coordinator in all of college football as far as hot names. Were concerned and marcus freeman brian. Kelly made some comments. He claims were taken out of context about marcus freeman. Maybe being the coach in waiting in south bend. Kelly seemed to back a little bit and say that freeman will be the next black head coach to be out there if you read what he said earlier this week when you look at this irish defence kyle. Hamilton is the name to know. He is the game breaker in the secondary. Whoever's under center for florida state's gonna need to identify him in every pre-snap read reasonable. Leave that what clark. Lee started to build. Marcus freeman will only build upon now. As far as what. Kenny billingham is going to do on the offensive side. Will it be mackenzie. Milton will be jordan. Travis will it be a combination of two or as charlie war me walking through that door take snaps as florida. State's starting quarterback charlie ward is is not going to be under center. Here's kind of what i can say to. This is back in march. I alluded to jordan travis. Being ahead of mackenzie milton in this quarterback battle which didn't shock anybody. He's been in the system. He was actually healthy. And then all of a sudden towards the end of spring ball. Makenzie melton came on a little bit had a great spring game performance. All the rumors of him being a gamer and not doing overly well in practice kinda showed itself in the spring game. He went back home to hawaii. Was working out continuing to rehab and learning the system. We just assumed coming back to fall camp. That is going to be mackenzie milton's job. He's had some rest days because the workload got to be too much. I mean this guy who almost lost his leg and so jordan travis. Everything that i've heard has been the better quarterback and last year when he was dealing with an arm injury and camp couldn't really throw it. I don't think he's going to be an thrower by any stretch. But all signs point to him being a substantially improved passer. And it's not like florida. State has the greatest line in the best receiver group that would be enabling him to look like a million bucks throwing the ball. There's no peter work that room. No there there is improvement from him. Now you also don't know what mike novell's going do. I've said from day one. You shouldn't tell anybody who is going to start under center until the first snap because you didn't want you didn't want either of these guys get pissed off and transfer out. You didn't want to tip your hand. Because they are so diametrically opposed to what they're doing right mackenzie milton's the guy sitting shotgun deliver the ball. Release it quickly and be accurate. And then you have jordan travis. Who was really responsible for the improved run numbers last year with that added man in the box. And if he isn't improved passer like then. You've probably struck some level of goal. But i don't think we're gonna find out who starts. I think both will get reps in this game. We know mike. Novell was strongest last year with his offensive scripts. So if you have the ability to deliver a great script march the ball down the field then all of a sudden you go to a different quarterback and then you transition to the other guy again. Maybe that's the element of surprise that keeps notre dame on its heels early in this game but that's one thing that we saw last year. Is you know past the script. Pass the opening few drives all of a sudden things started to settle in and defenses. Just swarmed and i think that is the big element to this game is. Seeing florida's state potentially operate on early downs. Can they be in third and manageable situations. Can they be in second manageable situations. If florida does not win on early downs this game potentially gets ugly because for as one of the worst teams in the country and even though the offensive line has improved year-over-year. If you get florida state's offense and known passing situations you're going to be able to dominate them and make quick work of the offense. So that is really. What's what's scary here. The other thing is when i dug into last year's game and again i mentioned this i believe we downgraded notre dame four points from last season we've upgraded. Fsu roughly six points. But when you look at last season's box f- issue didn't have a win probability at any point in that game that indicated they should have only lost by sixteen so the gap might actually be larger than we think. And in that game. Tomorrow in terry had nine catches for one forty six touchdown now. He certainly underachieved his career at florida state but the talent you couldn't debate and right now there isn't a guy outside for florida state. That's to his level. Talent wise. the hope is that the entire offseason the chemistry. That's been built. The familiarity with the system kind of has the some of the parts being better than last year. And that's that's the hope but this is going to be tough sledding. Here early on. I'm really interested to see what mike norval has again. This is a big game for them. It's still a long road to the top. This is a five or six win. football team. Six in a bowl win is is absolutely hitting the jackpot this year. And it's it's a super bowl like season you further to kind of support. What you've said. I found some of the comments and quotes..

"The only thing i point out is that they could have gone to a bowl. They decided not to and It comes up in all the previous content that that that was a good move for them. Culturally it it seems like it. They were able to build from that weird year. Weird your game a chance to recharge come back strong and now be part of this thing which again p panels writing articles about phil djurkovic. The schedule is very appealing. They've got a lot back. They've got a good offensive line. There's a lot to like about this boston college team as we go now into year. Two of jeff halfway there for crap last year could not run for crap. Could but zeh flowers is back. He led the team and targets in yards and touchdowns smaller dude but vertical threat gets a lot of his work out of out of the slot. At least he did. Last year round a lot of goat's house his deal and jakovic was able to connect with them. So i think those factors alone have huge appeal and especially when you layer on the schedule. It's it's a lot clearer. Why folks are so high in boston. College there's a lot to like here. The factor is though you're right defense is bad last year. Bad upfront can stop the run. They lose their top tacklers from year ago. Everyone else is back. They added a guy from florida state. Jane lars would be. Who's gonna good player player. Hopefully gonna come in on the back into that defense and make make a difference but it's pretty clear and jeff half liza former defensive coordinator. Pretty clear that they need to try and get better on defense through distinct forward but the i think they will. I think they will. I think there another one of those teams. You look at first year coaches in twenty twenty. It is incredibly reasonable to expect unless there's some sort of crazy personnel situation an appreciable improvement just by having their very first offseason so i think defensively he was known at ohio state for really simplifying things and making everything very easy to understand and letting players play at the defenses made sense more than it had previously and arguably since so i expect something similar i think. His assistant hires were very well received. Obviously jakovic came in with a top high school recruit and the pedigree of being partially developed at notre dame. So there's a lot to like about boston. College is upside. So i understand your optimism for sure. I the schedules easy right. Like outside is outside of clemson. They go to clemson october. Second otherwise all the tough tough danger at home you get missouri at home. I don't know how tough that'll be. The eight new coach culkeen newco missouri at home. Nc state at home. Virginia tech florida state and wake all at home at home. This is nice. It's not bad it's back on the road syracuse on the road louisville. I mean that's two consecutive road games. But whatever you're right and you get a buy between clemson and nc state great great schedule it works out well for them. These mid tier acc teams are always tough. Be tricky ms pressure. Be trick especially with eli drink quits. He will have. He will understand the context here that season upcoming program right now sure. So how optimistic do you want to get here. do you wanna go. Tend to want to go five hundred seven. I could make a case for either. You can make a case for ten into boston college. I'm gonna crack my neck. Sit and just enjoy this okay. Why not Boston college still had kind of a somewhat disastrous defensive. Twenty twenty here are there lose. -able games mizzou clemson. Nc state louisville. Virginia tech Florida state wake. That's seven games. Those are lose. -able games for bbc but if it all goes right tend to rise right if it all goes rate. That's my point. They have the sixtieth best defense. And they don't really regret turnover wise because they did have some turnover luck last year and they don't dramatically regress turnover wise and filled. Jakovic is who the drooling. Nfl scouts say he is takes another step forward. Has you know fortified. That connection was flowers and maybe develop more receiving connections. Whatever then bc schedule is such that they have maybe one two random third lucile game. So i i would say in four nine threes. Probably four is my bet. Eight four is my bet the over under his seven. I feel like seven's a strong over bet. I'd be inclined to go over. I think. Eight hundred number though okay. Eight and four is the number for me. I don't think it will fall below seven. If it hits seventy push man if what is where does jeff half ligo if be segel's late before nine three then you're gonna start agreeing with me about you know fully and then we're talking major job potentially big time. Yeah okay the. I'm pumping the brakes a little bit on that conversation. But yeah that's there's you know there's a world in which we could draw it up on the big board. The final team here is notre dame on my side and we'll get yeah quickly through some of the group of five suffered in a you researched shar notre dame won ten in two thousand nine odor in the regular season. They won ten and two and thus concludes your notre dame preview undefeated regular season. But they lose to clemson thirty four to ten in the rematch of the acc championship and then lose. Thirty one to fourteen to bama in the playoffs really efficient across the board. They had some issues finishing drives and given up big plays. But everybody did. The line is a beast. Entire defense generated a ton of havoc placed. We're really good kyran williamson coordinator gone defensive coordinator. I'm getting to that that i promise kyran williams emerged. Maybe one of the best running backs in country this year. We'll see sure i. I honestly have not heard his name as much as i would expect to given his success last year. And a like a really nice you know. Got kudos for his blocking and his ability out of the backfield at times catching the ball. So yeah a really really strong emergence for the irish for sure and you know. Love them or hate them. The offense did flow through ian book. And it was damn effective. Sure i was not always even books biggest fan but if float it float through imbaba short so that brings us now to where we go from here and there are two sides of curb appeal for notre dame to play it again just.

"At north carolina umass at clemson. Nc state. miami was college at florida so my only point. The only reason i bring that up is that last year's team would have gone one in six against that sleet assuming they run the table after the notre dame game. If florida wants to get to a bowl they have to win. At least two or three of those seven games that i just listed they have to so who are the wieners in there. Maybe boston college maybe. Nc state maybe miami. I don't know but that's enough spell right in the middle there. They're going to have to contend with those last seven games. Yeah okay so. I would point to wake. So you're three games and now notre dame jacksonville state so you have a good idea of what you are and what you aren't by them. Sure exactly. I would point to to wake on the road. They beat north carolina behind a huge. First half and second second-half last year. So i would say competitive against north carolina. Even though they're going to be on the road and chapel hill and then probably nc state where they are as a program. Because that's what a letdown. Look ahead situation after clemson before miami. So what they look like at home against. Nc state so really. It's the north carolina schools which is very vague. Considering there are many north carolina schools in the acc but nc state and unc. To me are okay. So we're halfway through the season. What do they look like are they. Are they losing thirty. Four to seven or they you know at least giving north carolina's defense which isn't lights out a good amount to handle. Are they losing that game. Thirty five twenty seven you know what. What are we talking about with florida state. By the time they play north carolina. And what do they look like a letdown. Look ahead sandwich situation against the pack that to me. Yeah those those will be like the bookmarks of the twenty twenty one st season vegas for what it's worth has florida state at five and a half and five and a half wins as the over under. Most people were betting the under you get even money odds if you go over which is actually a pretty good number if you take the most possible optimistic view. The florida state. If you assume that mackenzie milton goes out there. And his incredible can find seven. I can find seven or eight. So i would go over that five and a half. I think wins over jacksonville state syracuse umass and then three of wake louisville. Nc state. miami. Maybe even notre dame and week one. I don't know well. We'll talk about her name. But i think there's a path they're for florida state. It's a really tough schedule. Brutal schedule fourteenth most difficult in the country this year. It's because it's book ended by notre dame and florida and then they've got games against clemson and miami some of these other. Acc powers between so. It's it's going to be a bumpy road. Altogether i think florida states in a much better spot. I feel like they finally got this thing turned around and going in good direction but Quarterback will be very instrumental in houthem. Horace goes ahead. What does that room look. Like behind. Mackenzie milton all it takes. Is you know and average hit and he might be a little bit more vulnerable. So yup they. Where are we going next Let's go. I'm going to save notre dame for last okay. Yeah you're only a half. acc team so. I don't know you tell me what what's go to. Nc state nc states really appealing to me remember about your father started going you. You're playing the sounds for everything now. i'm not i'm not. I'm just okay as the spirit moves. Sprinkle didn't for florida state. I wanted to get serious but nc state nc state was eight and four last year. They lost virginia tech north carolina and miami during acc play and they lost close to kentucky in the bowl game the best quarterback on the roster devon leary only three and a half games that was impart due to contact tracing early and breaking his leg late right so is move forward now. The appeal You want me to play. i'll play it. What the hell all sit down diesel tones. I think we're guaranteed to get some improvement in twenty twenty one. Because there's nineteen starters back devon leary is recovered. Bailey hawkins gone. He transferred to middle tennessee. State everybody is back on offense with the exception of their tight end and right guard. We've got bam night. We've got ricky person junior in the backfield for the wolfpack. Really good running back unit We've got every starter back on defense with the exception of lean mcneil who went pro. Probably the second best front seven in the sea. Behind clemson anchored by willis isaiah more at linebacker. Good secondary miami Interfet niba generate more turnovers. But it's a good team. It's a team and one of the recurring themes that kept coming up and going through all the preview content. That's out there is that this is. This is a crazy experience team. And dave doran has done a good job. He's now been extended four times. I believe why his tenure at nc state because they believe in the job he's doing it hasn't always been sexy most of the time it hasn't but this represents a very unique opportunity for nc state a very unique opportunity in that they bring back a lot of their talent pretty much all their talent from a year ago. And if they can get devon lear to be healthy devin leary's of very interesting player. I think it was clear in the limited action that we saw last year when he was in there. Him versus bailey. Hawk and like bailey. Hochman was fine but devin leary was a different a different cat. All that is what they were missing so if you throw him in the mix if you can keep him healthy if you can combine him with the bam nights and ricky persons and a.

"And then how is notre dame here irish lad irish there. I'm guessing. yeah george. Gipp played football for notre dame from nineteen seventeen to nineteen twenty. He was born in michigan in the upper peninsula. He came to notre dame to play baseball but he was recruited for the football team. Gipp lead the fighting irish in rushing and passing. He actually has some records. That are still on the books today. So there's a story about how Gipp died and it's probably not true at all though. Just tell you well let me something we talk about. But it's definitely worth mentioning and talking about when we talk about notre dame footba so. He was out late one one night and he returned to campus after curfew. He couldn't get into his dorm so he went to the rear door of of the washington hall. Which is The campus theater building and he went there because he knew that the door was often unlocked so when he partied a little too late he would often spend the night there but on that night. The hall was locked tight. He slept outside and by the morning he had contracted pneumonia and eventually died from a related infection now. The more likely story is that he got strep throat while giving punting lessons after his final game which was november twentieth nineteen twenty against northwestern another college around the area here and since there are no antibiotics in one thousand nine hundred ninety s These things were very hard to treat and it became much worse and eventually took him down. But rebecca you probably don't remember him. I football playing do you. Have you ever heard of this man get. This is not sound familiar to me. I mean it does because i've done research both researching this episode. If you had said yeah. Who's the most famous football player. Whatever no i would not have thought of this name. But he's not just famous for the way that he played football. He was on his hospital. Bed said this to a football coach. Name rodney i've got to go rack. It's all right. I'm not afraid sometime rock when the team is up against it when things are wrong and the breaks are beating. The boys asked them to go in there with all they've got and win. Just one for the gipper. I don't know where. I'll be then rock but i'll know about it and i'll be happy. Yeah so he was the gipper that you know. Everyone's talked about when they say when one for the gipper. Okay so i'm just gonna. I'm gonna be vulnerable here and saying that when ever heard the phrase win win for the gipper. My brain has always thought of ronald reagan. You know y why okay. I did not until researching this. Ronald reagan played the gipper gipper in movie. And so like i. I swear. I've heard people refer to ronald. Reagan is the gipper and it never made any sense to me. I didn't understand any of it. But would he was playing this character with ronald reagan. A lot of times Like he took on the personality of the person that he played and People gave gave him credit for the things that those people did. I so anyways all right so the gipper is this guy played. Football got it. So rodney used the story of gipp..

"Under the name of the university of notre dame du lac Which is the university of our lady of the lake so Notre dame is just our lady and notre dame do lock means the lady of the lake university of the lady of the lake. I love it. Yeah because the university was originally a male female only saint. Mary's college was founded by the sisters of the holy cross near notre dame in eighteen forty four so shortly after. Yeah that's amazing in eighteen. Forty nine notre dame awarded. Its first degrees. So that's a long time ago it's been operating that's amazing. Yeah definitely especially for a private college like this. That doesn't get the same government funding. Exactly soren strength was demonstrated on april twenty third eighteen seventy nine when a fire destroyed the main building which housed virtually the entire university and also the library. Oh and their library was was pretty big. At that time. It had like a thousand bucks at that time so sad. Yeah timothy edward howard Which became a chief justice at the indiana supreme court and he was also a professor at notre dame provided a first person account of what soren said inside the sacred heart church. I was then president when father soren after looking over the destruction of his life work stood at the altar steps of the only building left and spoke to the community. What i have always felt to be the most sublime winds ever listened to there was absolute faith confidence resolution in his very look and pose. If it were all gone. I should not give up. His words enclosing. The effect was electric. It was the crowning moment of his life. A sad company had gone into the church that day. They were all simple christian. Heroes came out. There was never more shadow of a doubt as to the future of notre dame. Yeah what's kind of funny too. Is that some people. Recall him saying something like the virgin. Mary thought it wasn't big enough. The building oh so that's why she burned down. Wow so that we will have to build bigger. Okay yeah nation. I'm i don't know if he actually said that. But a lot of people recalled hearing him say they'll time Soren passed away on october thirty first eighteen. Ninety three at the age of seventy-nine he's laid to rest at the holy cross cemetery in notre dame he died of bright's disease which is a historical classification of kidney disease. So during sorin's years at notre dame he saw a lot of new buildings being built including an eighteen eighty eight they opened the basilica of the sacred heart. The first notre dame football team. I played in notre dame on november twenty third. Eighteen eighty seven nearly forty five years to the day after father sworn arrived in northern indiana. The university chose to honor the irish with the name. The fighting irish Which you would think they would have called the fighting french right. Well when you said the six priests sounded like there were more irish than french. I mean obviously soren was french. But i also chicago and this whole area has a lot of irish and i assume a lot of irish catholic parents would have wanted to send their kids there. Yeah but it is interesting that it's not that the name of the university is french. Yeah but the name of the football team is irish. Because i always thought you know. Notre dom is in is in france so it has to be french..

"Christmas season rolls right along. It's coming up on this show is flying by, you know, already 23 minutes past the hour is a college football Saturday. We're talking Detroit Lions, mostly and also Detroit sports the whole We had a caller that called and start the hour. We're going to talk about that. We're gonna talk about the college football playoffs and all of a sudden cologne back. The Lions came up and we all went nuts. I feel bad. But now we do want to get into college football playoffs in which four teams will make the playoffs. And right now, this is probably Easily the weirdest year ever in 2020, and now I got even weirder because This is the first time where there's actually true discussion, which four teams should be in. Usually, it's always clumps in Alabama, Ohio State and like Oklahoma every single year Now, this is finally a debate on who should make it because we don't know eyes, Notre Dame gonna make it or is Ohio State gonna make it? Are they lock or is Text saying I'm gonna be in there. We don't know. So right. Let's get your list right now in which four teams should be in. Yeah, and you have so many teams to that have played a different amount of games, too. So that's something toe. Also look at if you're the committee. But I mean right now. As you know, noontime. Today I was watching the northwestern Ohio State game and I was like, Wow. If Ohio State loses this game, this could really shift some things. But they took care of business off. One of probably Justin feels worst game easily and I just want to say this about Justin Fields. I was about him, You know, drafting the lines and everything but washing the Indiana game watching a big 10 championship game. He can't perform in big games for some for some reason. But aside from that, um right now, Notre Dame as we're watching is putting the hammer down or they're getting crushed by Clemson and you know, earlier on in the season, Notre Dame beat Clemson. So I think no dames right to Clemson's rank three as we speak. But if Clemson just keeps rolling Notre Dame Notre Dame's got to be scared. That's good decision. I mean, it's 31 23 right now. And if that if they don't score a touchdown in this game I wouldn't be surprised if you know the committee bumps Ohio State So you know, three and then no Dame's gonna be flirting with 45 or six spot after this week. I don't know It's gonna be tough going to be tough to decide, and we have Texas A and M looking in. Who they believe they can play with anyone in the country. They had one of the players tweet out. You know, Ohio State who blah blah, blah, and they were. They were playing Tennessee today they had they had a little scare with the volunteers to Ah So so I don't know. It's It's going to be tough to pick the final four. But I want to get talking about this. You know, Expansion made you to an 18 playoff. Look, I know you are finding that idea. What do you think about that? I've always been on board for expanding 18. Because four teams is not enough because look at the discussion that we're in right now. Notre Dame is clearly good enough to be a national championship and on tonight's not shelling answer down like 30 points right now, but play Lawrence last time they Yeah. Trevor Laurence didn't play because he was dead Covert. When last night they played clumps and it was closed. It was very funny, went over time to double overtime. And I still think that Notre Dame is a national championship contender. I think that clubs and obviously is going to be a favor. Alabama's obviously the favorite. We look at the teams Texas A and M can win. The fifth in the country. Right now, they lost to Alabama, though they did lose the Alabama But Texas A and M is still legit. Got destroyed by AL, There's so much What does Obama doesn't? What if Florida beats Alabama tonight? I mean, there's still gonna be in the top four, right? I think they were still I think it was the only life Lord Osric seven. Nordin gets blown out today like we don't know. I don't know how this is gonna I know for the Lost ls you last week, but which is a bad loss. It is a bad loss. But at the same time, Florida could be a team that can contend for national championship. Then you think about Cincinnati. There are defeated again. They don't play anybody. But there's still a legit You know, big time program out in Cincinnati with Luke Fickell at the helm. I think that team is still a national championship contender, So that's why I think that the top eight teams could make it because it's unfair to get to go to Notre Dame ago. You beat Clemson, but you just got destroyed tonight. You're out. Yeah, And I think it's ridiculous that Cincinnati didn't mean play. I think it was last week or two weeks ago, and they they moved down in the rankings and they have the most games played. I believe. I mean, I think there there 11 and oh, Um, I think they're you know. Yeah, I know. But so they have, you know, more wins than most of these teams that Yeah, and you know, that's that's starting with Dave handled the covert situation. Well, you have these teams that You know, aren't serious about it, and it's hurting them and for the lesser like for less played games, But Cincinnati Like I think they should have a shot. And that's where I like to expansion. Um, you know, I'm a bear cat fan. I got some bear cat apparel in my, uh, my closet. I was born in Cincinnati. I always root for him. Yeah, but, you know, I want to see these Cinderella type situations. I would love this. This 18 playoff. Then you bring in coastal Carolina who live in, you know exactly, Yeah, Coastal and Cincinnati if they had four teams. Added on I think it would just be better for college football fans in general, more football, The better more money, But I do think that Four teams is not enough. And eight teams is like the perfect amount because there's every year there's always four teams that we always say. Yeah, they couldn't they couldn't easily with a national championship, but we'll never know. Because they never get the opportunity to do so. Yeah, or have a you know a power five playoff in a non power five playoff foreign four or something like that. There's you, and there's always a Cincinnati every year where they're undefeated like you. CF. A couple years ago, they were undefeated and they didn't make it. But they were like a top 18 in the country. But national championship right? They call themselves national champions like how does that happen? You're undefeated and your eight in the country and you don't go to the playoffs and You will never know if you can contend with Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State. You just never know. So I think eight teams should be looked in the mirror seriously, and I think that should be. Ah, moved the incident. We should make you think that he's smart for everybody. Yeah, especially with the non power five conference teams. You know, they normally play a power five conference team in the beginning of the seasons like Let's say they're still undefeated At the end of the season..

"I watched the clips of brian. Kelly press conference and he looked like he was exact exasperated. And i don't know if you're a notre dame fan. How do you feel about this. Because he's i mean he's a really really good coach. We do these top. Twenty five lists every year and brian. Kelly definitely should be in the top five and they have really good players. But i don't know and he's right alabama's done this to almost everybody. They actually didn't do it. The florida but you know was there were still you know it's like we'll see if ohio state gets closer. So let's let's fill people in on the quotes if they didn't see them after the game not surprisingly. Maybe he was surprised. I don't know he was asked a lot about. How does the here how frustrating the question was how frustrated is. How frustrating is it to get to a playoff again lose by this margin the margin not the issue. Losing his losing. I don't know really. What the inferences. This football team battled and they made more plays they being alabama made a few more. Plays on the perimeter. I'm not sure really what the question is when you lose football games you know. There's a few more plays jeff to make. We had the opportunity. You watch the game. I watched the game <hes>. So everybody needs to continue to carry this narrative that not not good enough. Look at the scores of the games. The albums played all year. And i think when you start changing the narrative little bit then somebody asks as you look at it. You feel like the program has gotten a lot closer. What's the next step. You feel like you guys could take need to take i. I don't really wanna continue to go down this path. We're going to keep getting here okay. And we're gonna keep banging at it and you guys watched the game in you. They had the college football player of the year. Who made some dynamic place. We battled. We were right there. So we're going to keep getting back here. And i'm sorry i don't like it or the national media doesn't like it but we're going to go back to work we're gonna keep recruiting. We're going to put ourselves back in this position again <hes>. I mean i know. He's got to defend the program. And you know what's he going to say like. Oh yeah we're we're we've got a ways to go <hes>. But you're right like if you're ordering fan who who still believes deep down the program. That should win the national championship. How do you feel about your coach. Basically coming on saying he's basically trying to say yeah. We don't have a devante smith. We don't have nausea harris. But we were good enough that like if we caught them on the day we could one maybe is that is that we took from it. Yeah and i'm thinking about it. It's like this notre dame team. And i would say it from the last from the jalen smith <hes>. Ronnie stanley era up. So whatever it is i guess. Maybe it's the last five or six years they've had like some special athletes right. I mean ronnie stanley elite talent offensive lineman jalen field. Jalen fields. Jalen was is home. Ultra talented linebacker. They've had <hes>. Kyle hamilton is as athletic as any any safety. The country i mean they have some of these guys will fuller was as fast and dynamic as any receiver just about. I mean it's not like they haven't kyran williams of big time running back they just don't have quite enough of them right. I mean like they don't have any of them. It's not like you know. The the line from joey galloway said like northwestern's a bunch of reese davis's you know the inference there is like notre dame has has some guys who would play anywhere and they've always had a bunch of good offensive linemen. They have good tight ends. I don't think they're light years away from having like a team that could win a national title. I mean they're they're a top five team. It's just you know. I don't know like like maybe this is a better way to frame it. Like if they were playing ohio state they have somehow gotten by alabama. I mean <hes>. Let's take alabama out of the equation if they were playing ohio state and somehow it was a two three game. Let's say let's say that it was just a playoff game but it wasn't. You know as the i. I could see <unk>. Notre dame beating ohio state. Even after what. I just saw from ohio state alpha. If justin feels plays away did tonight. I couldn't but <hes> like i don't think it's out of the realm of possibility like i think there are. You know i watched their. I think notre dame's better team than georgia. I think not notre dame honesty's a better team than florida now. It's easy to say that after you've seen some of these teams get exposed some but lake and those teams. Those teams have played with alabama on a given night right. So i just don't think they have as much margin for error right
