"That's that's that's all I said, I was constantly trendy automate how can you have any faith that Miami could score three and a half points. I was riding my com last night about this game. And on the record. I like Wisconsin this matchup when you look at these teams I understand what happened last year. Miami lost a double digit lead and ended up getting beat by double digits. I don't think that game means anything know about this. And then when I look at this game, I don't like Miami's offense running or passing. I'm not sure about my defense. It's been spotty. Although last couple defenses. But Manny Diaz is gone wrecked. So I don't know that factor is Wisconsin quarterback play awful all year. Wisconsin run game. But I do trust Paul Chryst in getting the run game fixed. And Jonathan Taylor of of all the things in this game. That's the one thing. I could see getting fixed and getting right? And they don't have to be great. They're an underdog. I'd only Miami's going to force the issue when they have the ball. So I'll take Wisconsin Harris as short dog. I think they win the game on the field. It's hard to. I if it wasn't such an obvious side and the game I'd be I'd be I can't I can't play Miami. All right. Who's been a bigger disappointment this year? Miami. Because they really just looked terrible offensively. They were terrible. I'll give you this ACC really interested to see what they do in this bowl season. It's been Clemson and everybody else. All right now, did Miami just overachieved that much last year. Miami got an works at that schedule. Miami was the beneficiary of earning unbelievable turnover. Lock lock right? Getting Notre Dame Notre Dame Virginia Tech at home at the right time. After winning a bunch of close games that may be made their record seem better than they were games. They were also against Notre Dame and Virginia Tech. They were awesome games. They were great. And that gave you a little bit of belief. And then the Virginia Virginia game they did come back and win. And then the Penn State game just kind of exposed all the problems and from there Melik regime has not been the same player on the offense hasn't been the same. I blame Andy Staples for Wisconsin struggles to share because he did that photo shoot with them before the year, and he really showed how those guys out to eat. Affect them the season just getting into I think Wisconsin more of a disappointment. Because of. What should have been? And now, I realize like watching talent wise it wasn't there. I just I mean why I think they were to consensus pick to win the conference because of that side. They nobody really was that good like everyone's like, oh Purdue was they ended up beating do and produced had to win oaken bucket. The last week to make a ballgame. No. I don't wanna hear Purdue Nebraska was Nebraska, Iowa that they went there, and I get I guess just like northwestern come on. I guess the thing with Wisconsin was I didn't think there were winning an an Arbor. I didn't think there in state college. So I didn't have them as like a playoff. They were never a playoff game in my mind. And I thought with whether it was at Iowa or at Purdue or somewhere else, they would kind of pick up that third loss mean, I don't think I didn't for see losing home values. While you to three touchdown favorite. But I think there's something here too with Wisconsin. They're gonna they're going to get a little a little excited about getting a chance to play here bay here about the whole Miami the turnover chain, my speed and Florida eye. They'll be they'll be right. A minute building last year. I know there's not a lot of Wisconsin alums in the northeast Kenny Dichter not going to be at the game. Why he's going to be home watching it on a fifty two inch? Okay. Eighty two inch TV once one of their isn't movie. I'm sure he's got something is well, I gotta bring it up also too. Because people love this stuff the games in New York, the motivation factor Miami, like why are we going to go up to put Miami's coming up to New York? Play football chair, Ronna Miami alums in northeast understood I will not be you'll be every man goes up..

"Already has one conference loss. So we don't know what will happen in the championship game. They're ACC is probably clemson's clumps is probably the only team that would get in buying some unusual circumstances. So the spot the spot is certainly open for Notre Dame. And the winner of the the big ten to both get in. I could certainly see that happening. Although I do agree with J P lost lost by Notre Dame. Tanny one of these five games at five teams down the stretch puts them almost in the same position at a pack twelve or big twelve or even ACC Clemson team. I let me throw one more at you J P. What is both Clemson and Notre Dame both lose only one game. But they both lose to Florida state. I would have to go to Notre Dame in that scenario when you look at overall strength of schedule top to bottom. Yeah. Sure functions in the conference. But if you look at we talked about it last time, I was on your show. We talked about schedule from top to bottom before September was over. They had beaten for power five teams from four different. Thompson insists that's not something Clinton can say I have to give the nod to Notre Dame. Also have to do with how how each team lost those games blowouts close game. Same score. I don't know. I I'd have to give it to Notre Dame that scenario Andy let me throw it to you because Notre Dame. Of course, we'll get Florida state at south bend where Clemson is going to Tallahassee. Well, the other thing also is at Notre Dame has three victories already over ACC teams winning Wake Forest averaging tech. And then the home win before the bye week against Pittsburgh. So they've played somewhat of an ACC schedule, and they still have Florida state to play the fact that Notre Dame also plays national schedule. I mean, whether they're opera down you're talking about a USC you're talking about a Michigan. You're talking about. They also have Syracuse ACC. I think the fact that there are really no very weak teams that you consider maybe ball state possibly Vanderbilt. Although again, Vanderbilt comes with that pedigree SEC. I think that Notre Dame. Probably win out in most tiebreakers one. It's a specially comes to a subjective decisions being made by by the committee by taking a look and saying, hey, even though they may have lost one look at all the other ones that they have against quality programs from a variety of different conferences. I agree with you there there because when I look at the non conference for Clemson, and I see Furman and Georgia Southern there boy, and then you look at Notre Dame schedule. And again, we don't know how these teams are going to pan out, but we do know going into the season. There was a lot optimism. Michigan Stanford Virginia Tech Florida state Syracuse in USC so again, Notre Dame schedule to me is one of the most difficult schedules and the most difficult on paper when I looked at the beginning of the year. I said good God. How are they going to get through this gauntlet without three losses, and so far so good wimbush Bush replays book being the guy told me a little bit JP about this offense about Ian book taking over? Now, they seem to be clicking on all cylinders. The running game is back. They were banged up for a little bit. And so they're missing, you know, one of the running back, Dexter Williams. He's back now Tony Jones juniors healthy as well. You get the guy Armstrong who's a touchdown maker himself. I mean receiving core as well. And then on defenseman when you got a guy like Tillery on the line, and then a couple linebackers that are just tackling machines and tranquil in Coney this team doesn't have many weak spots. Yeah. No. I was just gonna say, you know, what we keep talking about. If Notre Dame. Visit the game. I'm telling you right now. If Notre Dame loses a game from here on out this team Bouzeghene from here on out something. Well, horribly wrong. I mean the game was close again. I think they they got caught looking ahead. You mentioned on defense. There's there might be more NFL players on this defense right now within the next two hundred thousand asked more NFL players on this defense than any other team in the country outside of maybe an Alabama. You got three or four guys on the defensive line. There you go you got at least one linebacker. That's going to do. And I believe all four guys spoke corners both safety in the secondary are going on the NFL. This team is stacked. You're not gonna consistently score points against them. Flip it over the offense in book needs to this team book book is he he he's he's collected. I always judge people on the land the plane factor. I've watched a person to operate. I watch how they move around. And I look at them and say if I'm getting on a plane, I saw him in the cockpit would be confident he could land the plane and book and land that plane that guy is ice cold ice water running through his Baynes. You mentioned the stable and running back to Williams is going to be an NFL player. No questions asked you for Armstrong. Get him back this week probably the best athletes on the team he's natural receiver. They converted into running back. And then the receivers they do have two six foot four guys in miles boykin and chase Klay pool with speed those guys can fly they can go up and get the ball. And then they got Christine who's your prototypical slot receiver. Just a tough guy in the middle of Julian Edelman offensive line for four maybe five guys on this line are gonna play in the NFL loaded team really loaded team. It's to the point where we've had the discussion, you know. Our writers on our site. It's really too bad the Alabama. So good. If there wasn't an Alabama in the world. I I gotta think Notre Dame's the favorite to win this thing. So I don't think it's going to happen. I don't think this team can beat Alabama. Maybe they could I believe that the best out of anyone. But absolutely no weaknesses on this team. And if they lose from here on out of your total started. Yeah. I can't disagree that they have a shot. I think Clemson with Lawrence playing at a high level may have a better shot. Just because they're defensive line may be the only defensive line that can get pressure and win the battle of the trenches against bama's offensive line to get pressure on tiger viola. Because here's the thing. If you don't pressure to Andy, you're not gonna be bam. Andy. Excuse me. One thing about Alabama's Nick Sabin has always excelled when given a significant amount of time to prepare for an opponent. And you know that if they're in the college football playoff whether they would play them in the first game of the second game. They've got over a month to prepare for whoever that first upon is. But you can be sure Nick Sabin and thinking about the potential championship game opponent as well. One thing about Notre Dame. Well, actually a couple of on to talk about the couple of stats here for Notre Dame. Only two teams have scored more than seventeen points against them this year. Wake Forest scored twenty seven fifty six twenty seven blow. I've lost to the Irish but Virginia Tech scored twenty three in a game. The Irish one forty five to twenty three there only two teams this year that have averaged more than five yards per play against Notre Dame Virginia Tech and that blowout game five point two. And then surprisingly the team that you would probably maybe second least expect Vanderbilt actually average six yards per play against against Notre Dame. Otherwise every team has been held onto four yards. This is an outstanding. Defense, and I don't know JP did it before. But I don't know many people who have given Notre Dame the kind of credit that I think they deserve for playing that kind of defense against such a wide variety style types of opponents JP another guy though that I would look at for Notre Dame to get the ball in a game against Obama. Or somebody of that magnitude would be Allison Mack is he's a good solid tight end. And he's somebody that as you talked about with boykin Klay, pull the two big guys think and then the running game you may forget about MAC, and this guy could be a dependable receiver when you need them. Yeah. He's prototypical new age athletic tight end. He had all essential in the world. I believe he's a five star when you got on campus. I mean, he was legit was number one in the country. He's never really reached his potential, but this year he has been clicking a little bit within books. He's out there. You're right. You know, you got so many other weapons around there. He just kinda finds himself open once in a while. I believe he had a big play against Virginia Tech toward the end. He's down to thirty five. Yard touchdown this year. That's his only touchdown of the season. But he's there. He's just kind of finds the opening. He's tied for second team. Touches right now very dangerous natural receiver. Maybe not the best blocker in the world. And the way they run the ball and the way that offensive line blocks. That's not a huge concern. Mac is definitely a player. JP? I'm gonna let you go. But before I know you've done writing for the silver and black and and the raiders really struggling and now making wholesale moves and looking to build for the future three first rounders already lined up for next year to the following year. You don't have any Khalil Mack, and you don't have any Amari Cooper anymore. But what about the future for the raiders? Do you see this thing turning around and a couple of years? I do I think everything they're doing right now is posturing for the future. I mean, you mentioned getting rid of Cooper getting rid of MAC. Unfortunately, I really liked the kid, but I don't believe there are gonna be there much longer. I think he got value on the open market if it's kind of hanging out there for training, especially with some of the quarterback play. We're seeing around the league right now. Everything's about the future. I I'm looking at you know, that Herber kit out in Oregon. He says he's coming back. And then nobody confirms it. I got a feeling that. That's the quarterback of the future opens gonna roll with. They're gonna try to parlay fix you. Try to go get that kids. They definitely gotta go up and get a pass rusher or somebody who can at least penetrate the line, you know, even if that's an interior pass rusher. They gotta figure it out. But they gotta go to Vegas with the face of the franchise. And I don't know that the face of the franchise is on that roster right now. There you go. Great stuff. Follow him on Twitter at the JP.

"notre dame virginia tech" Discussed on The College Draft with Ross Tucker
"Line. So if he's not starting because they like these other guys more, you'll be able to hold up a little bit better and he does compete in the run game. Then that will go a long way with me if he just looks like he's a non-participant in the run game. I will be a little bit worried that being said, I mean that first step, his accelerate his ability to exceleron running the hoop is rare like that. There are a couple of clips that I've seen where you know he's just he's able to win with that. First step turn the corner, and then just like a race car at top speed just fly around the hoop to the quarterback is really, really impressive. Greg McElroy from ESPN just posted a shot yesterday from this game to where he's able to win inside. And to me, like if you've got the ability to win both outside and inside a tackle, doesn't know which way you're going. I mean, you could speak to that like, that's when you've won as as as a pass rusher. If you've got the ability to win both ways at a high level, you've got the speed rush, and then he's got a wicked spin inside spin move and newly. That's all you need. If you free any, you know, it helps toyed Freenet surprising power to, but really if you're just fast you an inside spin move and you get enough power that you really put in off at the tackle in a bad spot and to your point the Notre Dame Virginia Tech game as well. You mentioned Jerry Tillery. They were disappointed in him. I could tell when I was there for in the spring game a couple of years ago, but he's gotten a lot better. I thought he would end up on the offense of line, but he's gotten better. The other guy that stood out to me again, watching that game. I think he actually is draft eligible. I don't think it'll happen. I want you to check out Damon Hazelton the wide receiver from Virginia Tech at some point, really impressive. Physically, he's from Baltimore was like a five, ten running back who went to ball state. And now he's like six, three to fifteen wide receiver head a big true freshman year at ball state. So big that he's like I'm transferring. And now he's clearly Virginia Tech. Receiver. I'm thought that was pretty impressive. I was at the Fordham Georgetown game, which is funny because Bill Polian was there because his granddaughter goes to Fordham. So we were talking about four forty minutes a tight end. That's pretty good. Georgetown has a defensive lineman, Christian Tate, who's a junior who is hill end up getting a shot. He's a three technique. I think all the way they thought maybe even a fullback. He's a little salt off like six foot two, two, probably six one to eighty five. But he reminds me of like three technique defensive tackle, but Fordham has a tight end is as right, and he had three really, really nice catches where he used tremendous body control number one for Fordham. So that's kind of my my FCS scouting report of the week. What about the news about Miami wide receiver? Amman, Richard really, really stinks, just Just terrible terrible. I and. look the kid's been battling a bunch of injuries the last couple of years and we didn't. We haven't heard anything about the neck, but you know, I think it was a hamstring he's dealing with this year. Last year was ankle and knee stuff. He burst onto the scene as a freshman and was so so talented and I went back and watched this film last year. And even though he missed a bunch of time with injuries, you just saw the talent there. I mean, it was a big kid who could run you showed flashes route one or super competitive. Great. Blocker really just showed a lot of urgency with everything he did, whether it was as a route runner going up eating at the catch point. There were some drops. There were some inconsistent play and the production wasn't always there, especially over the last year and change, but this kid had loads of talent. So obviously the health is most important. I'm glad that they caught the condition before it became even more disabling, but certainly terrible news from the. What about some other guys you've watched? I've got Akron at UB on Saturday at noon on CBS sports network, which is convenient..

"And so it always throws me off and I hate to see it happen when coaches are fired midseason. But if you're going to do it the by weeks, the best time to do it, it is. And what bothers me most, if I'm a player on that Oklahoma defense, I have to have a certain level of accountability to because if you look and watch Oklahoma over the last six weeks, this schemes have been there. Yeah. There've been a few mistakes. There's an bus that assignment here and there, but the main reason why this defense has struggled is because they can't tackle if you watch him against Iowa State. Like right here, they miss six or seven tackles before the guy walks into the end zone every single year. When you put on the tape of Oklahoma, they're getting run over by offense players and they're not wrapping up in the secondary. That's not Mike. Soups fault. So yeah, if you're gonna make a change, it has to be today, but these players need to tackle better and be more sounded their fundamentals or the defense isn't going to get better. Okay. Another winner for you guys and it's chock the top four teams all with lopsided victories, Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, State and Clinton. So Greg, are we just headed for an inevitable playoff? I know it's only October, but still no guys, college football is the most unpredictably ridiculous regular season that we possibly have. We're talking about a Clemson team that was number one in the country after losing to afford a Clemson team or two, four, nine Syracuse team the year before they lost to pit who was not good at the time. By the way, we are going to have outcomes here in the next six weeks that nobody can predict including the underdog head coaches that are going to beat some of the top teams in the country two weeks ago who thought Florida was going to be ranked in the top fifteen. And now with. A lot of momentum heading into that George matchup next week. So you look at the games that have been played to this point for sure. Yeah. It's easy to say, oh, well, this is going to be chock. Got this all figured out. We know who these teams are. Joey. We're going to have a loss this week a loss next week in to the week after that nobody can foresee coming. I don't see it happening in the top three of those teams that you name or now we're going to find out what George is they? They have a scheduled coming up. They have LSU. They have Kentucky to have Florida. They have Auburn, so we're going to find out what Georgia is. I don't see Alabama getting scathed at all unless it happens in the SEC championship game, Ohio State, maybe later in the season against maybe a Michigan. And so as I look at it, Clinton should be favorite everyone, their games and I lean this way every single season. I've been wrong every single time. I think everybody is going undefeated. Last week. I know this already know I accept I can accept that. I make errors. Okay. But I'm gonna stick with my thought process is everyone's going into it? That's it. Okay. And if Notre Dame does undefeated by the way, then that throws a whole other wrench in this entire thing. But here's another loser for you guys and this syllabus parachuting stunt something that I know both of you do quite well. But this happened at the Notre Dame Virginia Tech game, and it's just you got to watch the landing here. Oh, no, yeah. Went all the way down there. What do we got on this thread? We'll start with you young. You have to know where you're ad on the field, right? Like spatial awareness very important on the football field. You're not only taking out your own body as you're going headfirst into a stadium. You're dragging the skycam with you and that affects the broadcast Joe. We just can't allow things like this. I agree with you, but it always makes me like think about when people are sitting in the stands and actually coaching from the stands like, hey, you should have. Forty should've thrown past. Here's this guy's jumping from somewhere. We can't see. I'll bet you to football stadium. Looks like a like a dot of light down. They're like, no, where you are. He didn't meet a new it..

"Has a twenty one point deficit go away and they come back to tie the game dot taxes was winning that football game. Even if you're a Texas fan when you blew that lead. Did you think you were winning the game? There's no way you had a feeling of just a big nod in your stomach saying, they just blew the lead. It's not gonna happen. We're gonna lose overtime. But Texas was able to block out that noise Texas was able to March down the field. And then Dicker the kicker hits a forty yard field goal. And this is a freshman kicker. How many times in college football? Do we sit there and say never trust kickers? Never just kickers. Now, just as Kentucky for crying out loud. And this kid he steps up on the big stage and drills the forty yard kick. So that game was everything you wanted in a college football game. Ellen was tremendous. Kyla Murray bounce back after a really bad fumble? And he was great especially when he was looked like he was down and out. And also, let's give credit to Tom Herman because not that long ago people on this network. And I've always been a big Tom Herman fan. I was able to be around him for a little bit through my temple connections. When he was at Houston. I saw the way quickly. He quickly did for that program. And I thought he was the right man for Texas. And I'm not saying Texas back Texas says return, Texas is winning the national championship. No. I'm not saying that there's still a lot of work to do. But I remember saying I'm that I'll be the first one to say I picked Oklahoma to win the game. And I was wrong. But after Tom Herman lost the opening game to Maryland. I remember coming on this show and saying terrible loss awful loss and people immediately with the lack of patients say fire the guy, this is ridiculous. I said ninety look at the Oklahoma game. I said he has USC and TCU. Let's see where he is after USC and TCU and if he loses both those games. Hi. Chastised me one be critical as much as you want land-based them as much as you want. And then Tom hermit after losing to Maryland. Takes down USC takes down TCU and dominates Oklahoma. Most of the way, let's the lead of that berate. But then his team was able to make the place down the stretch of give credit to Tom Herman. All right. Let me get to three more games in this segment. Florida and LSU Florida wins the game twenty seven to nineteen disappointing for LSU because LSU after this has Georgia, Mississippi State and Alabama. There would have been a whole lot more intrigued with LSU with what they've been able to do so far this year with the way they start off the season. How you're waiting game one. And you win it in a big way taking down Miami. And then you also beat Auburn come from behind. There would have been a lot of hype on who's a great personality and entertaining head coach, and they would have went into this three game stretch undefeated now no more because Florida gets the game. And they win the game twenty seven to nineteen at the swan when bro set takes the team down the field by himself to make it one thousand nine hundred fourteen if you had LSU like I did lie in the to you were feeling good wasn't over. But you were feeling good. However. Florida. Quickly bounces back, boom. Boom. Boom right down the field. They make it twenty two fourteen. And then their defense, we told you the key for LSU in this season. Joe borough can't turn over the football and up until this point. He's not throw a single interception. All year. But he gets picked for sex and then interception late trying to force some things with his back up against the wall. Those two intersections were very costly and LSU goes down to Florida twenty seven to nineteen. Now Notre Dame Virginia Tech when that game. Where Virginia Tech picks up some momentum at the half to make it seventeen to sixteen. I was wondering how close of a football game. This was going to be. Here's the thing with Notre Dame. They know what they have to do. They want to get into the college football playoff. They have to win out. They have to win out because if you have a program like Notre Dame that wins out they will be in the college football playoff, and they've been impressive. So far this year taken down Michigan. Then you had some close games that should have been close ball state Vanderbilt. But then this Notre Dame team with the new quarterback. They beat up on Stanford thirty eight to seventeen. And he in book and in Virginia Tech at seventeen sixteen at the half, the final scores forty five to twenty three. So very nice win for Notre Dame. And then here on out. You have pit navy northwestern Florida. Syracuse at USC you'll be favored in all those games, you control your own destiny and Notre Dame. Don't call one up because if you cough one out you won't be going to college football playoff most likely so the ball's in your court Notre Dame, and we'll see what you do. And the final game. We'll get in the segment Texas am hosting Kentucky. I've loved the story of Kentucky this year five hundred Mark stoops Benny snow junior. You have a good defense. But you have a quarterback that there's some unknowns about with Terry Wilson. And yesterday, I thought they asked Terry Wilson to do too much and they got away from their strength in Beni Snell junior. Because I get that has a good defense, and they could stop the run but Benny smell junior was getting yards yesterday. But he didn't get enough carries. Only got thirteen carries Kentucky's day was great. They made that stop after for to its bounce when one against and he goes to fourteen seven Kentucky's offense couldn't do much Kentucky's defense. Gotta score on a third and one were they took a fumble forced a fumble and took it to the house that made it fourteen fourteen. This game goes to overtime. And man, this is one of the worst beats I've had on the year. Oh, my gambling picks up and good this. You'll be the first one to tell you. I Kentucky getting five and a half the kicker makes the field goal and the and he did not make it hit the crossbar, but he was pushed back because we'll. Jason held onto the fricken football for too long. What was he doing holding onto the football for that long? You can't take the sack there. He takes a sack. The field goal gets missed hits the crossbar. Am and overtime. Just needs a field goal. They go for it on third down when they could have just taken the field goal ends the game. And they get a touchdown. They win by six. If you had the five and a half point spread Kentucky getting five and a half you were going livid about that. So congratulations to and Kentucky. I would love to see them win the football game yesterday. Also would love to see them cover the spread. So that's what we have happened with texts. Oklahoma Florida LSU Notre Dame Virginia Tech AM and Kentucky when we come back. We'll delve into Clemson and Wake Forest Bama in Arkansas.

"I remember coming on this show and saying terrible loss awful loss. Bull and people immediately with the lack of patients say fire the guy, this is ridiculous. I said neither look at the Oklahoma game. I said he has USC and TCU. Let's see where he is after USC and TCU and if he loses both those games. Hey. Chastise one be critical as much as you want lambaste them as much as you want. And then Tom hermit after losing to Maryland takes down USC takes down TCU and dominates Oklahoma. Most of the way, let's the lead of that berate. But then his team was able to make the place down the stretch, give credit to Tom Herman. All right. Let me get to three more games in the segment Florida and LSU Florida wins the game twenty seven to nineteen disappointing for LSU because LSU after this has Georgia, Mississippi State and Alabama. There would have been a whole lot more intrigued with LSU with what they've been able to do so far this year with the way they start off the season how your wing game one. And you win it in a big way taken down Miami. And then you also beat Auburn come from behind. There would have been a lot of hype with LSU in an order on who's a great personality and entertaining head coach, and they would have won into. This three-game stretch undefeated now no more because Florida gets the game. And they win the game. Twenty seven to nineteen at the swamp. When bro set takes the team down the field by himself to make it nineteen to fourteen if you had LSU like I did in the to you feeling good wasn't over. But you are feeling good. However, Florida quickly bounces back, boom. Boom. Boom right down the field. They make it twenty two fourteen. And then their defense, we told you the key for LSU in this season is Joe borough. Can't turn over the football and up until this point. He did not throw a single interception all year. But he gets picked for sex and then interception late trying to force some things with is backed up against the wall. Those two interceptions were very costly. And LSU goes down to Florida twenty seven to nineteen. Now Notre Dame Virginia Tech when that game. Where Virginia Tech picks up some momentum at the half to make it seventeen to sixteen. I was wondering how close of a football game. This was going to be. Here's the thing with Notre Dame. They know what they have to do. They want to get into college football playoff. They have to win out. They have to win out because if you have a program like Notre Dame that wins out they will be in the college football playoff. And they've been impressed. So far this year taken down Michigan. Then you had some close games that shouldn't have been close ball state Vanderbilt. But then this Notre Dame team with the new quarterback. They beat up on Stanford thirty eight to seventeen and he in book and in Virginia Tech after seventeen sixteen at the half, the final scores forty five to twenty three. So very nice win for Notre Dame. And then here on out. Yeah. Pet navy northwestern Florida. Syracuse at USC you'll be favored in all those games. You can. Control your own destiny and Notre Dame. Don't call one up because if you cough one out you won't be going to the college football playoff most likely so the ball's in your court Notre Dame, and we'll see what you do. And the final game. We'll get to in this segment, Texas am hosting Kentucky. I've loved the story of Kentucky this year five Mark stoops Benny smell junior. You have a good defense. But you have a quarterback that there's some unknowns about with Terry Wilson and yesterday I thought they ask Terry Wilson to do too much and they got away from their strength in Beni Snell junior. Because I get that am has the good defense, and they could stop the run. But Benny snow junior was getting yards yesterday. But he didn't get enough carries. Only got thirteen carries Kentucky's day was great. They made that stop after for to its bounce when want against them. And it goes to fourteen seven Kentucky's offense couldn't do much Kentucky's defense got score on a third and one were they took a fumble. They forced a fumble and took it to the house that made it fourteen fourteen. This game goes to overtime. And man, this is one of the worst beats have had on the year. Oh, my gambling picks up and good. This year will be the first one to tell you. I Kentucky getting five and a half the kicker makes the field goal and the end he did not make it hit the crossbar, but he was pushed back because. Wilson held onto the fricken football for too long. What was he doing holding onto the football for that long? You can't take the sack there. He takes a sack. The field goal gets missed hits the crossbar AM overtime. Just needs a field goal. They go for it on third down when they could have just taken the field goal ends the game. And they get a touchdown. They win by six. If you had the five and a half point spread Kentucky, get five and a half you were going livid about that. So congratulations. Kentucky. I would love to see them win the football game yesterday health. So we love to see them covered the spread. So that's what we have happened with Texas. Oklahoma Fard LSU Notre Dame Virginia Tech and Kentucky when we come back. We'll delve into Clemson and Wake Forest Bama, Arkansas.

"Your host Zach Gill college football in just a second and for people tune in on a Sunday morning to this show and just expect college football college football college football. I appreciate you hanging with us because we will get to the college football and just a minute or two, but we're still reacting from this be McGregor aftermath. Then that's why we spent the first hour and twenty three minutes on it. Because it carries that it's been such a incredible thing to see right after a fine. It was it was really remarkable of some bull e football with what went down, and my plans are going into the show wasn't deleted with it. You mentioned the the show like a, you know, at a three forty m eastern bring it up and talk about the the big result by sometimes things happen that you don't expect to happen. And that's why it's been something that's carrying the aftermath following the fight in Las Vegas. Let me get Brown. Back up in Boston as his phone line was absolutely terrible in the last segment by hopefully be clear things up when we could hear Brown right now is a great show. Thank you. Appreciate it. Go ahead. Two months ago. You heard Mayweather Mayweather talking about how great Conor McGregor was. So they're trying to set up a second fight with them. Right. Was wasn't gonna go because Dana wanted him to protect the title the title shot. Yeah. But I don't wanna see. Honestly, I don't wanna see Mayweather McGregor. Again. I don't think it was. It was a better fight than I thought it was going to be. I don't think you would have the same juice this time around as it did the first time, whereas this Kabeba McGregor thing would have juice the second time around not that people think McGregor would come back and win. It's because of what happened after the fight. Right. But but Mujib his back and Russian mafia guys a tough tough guy. How much of my friends that are in 'em. They thought that kinda would lose and and he ended up beating them, but it was just that you know, that's how it was set up in. He beat them through. I think a monkey wrench into that thing with a second fight with McGregor. And that's why I think the Russian guys looking forward to the that's where the big money is one hundred million two hundred million dollars. Whether it was the money's going to be there or not. But I mean, the kid the kid just beat them. You know? Yeah, he did beat him. And he was the better fighter. And I thought that was going to be the case going tonight. Brad appreciate the phone call. Okay. Let's get to the college football. And we're going to have to do two segments on this. Because there's a whole lot of reaction from the college football yesterday. Let's start with the most entertaining game that was Texas and Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl. It was forty five to twenty four and when Oklahoma's trailing Texas by twenty one I'm thinking turn out the lights the party's over Texas. Is going to win the football game at ease. And I'm still thinking that in the fourth quarter. When there's ten minutes to play in Texas is still up by twenty one. And I'm still thinking that as we're approaching the nine minute, Mark and Texas is still up by twenty one. But then this is why I love college football. A changes any snap of a finger and in a few plays Oklahoma who seemed as dead in his overmatched as could be finds a way to get back into the football game and not only get back into the football game. But at one point it so they got a touchdown cut it down to fourteen then they make a stop defensively which Oklahoma struggled to make stops. But when it mattered up until the final drive they made the stops that they needed to then Kyle Murray after the stop after they force upon Kyle Murray goes for sixty seven yards, and I know people say all the time we want the. NC double a football video game back. I'm watching that. While it's happened on saying is this a video game the speed on that kid was unbelievable. It was great. I thought I was playing mad in NC double A because I thought the guy that was control of television on channel the game was on was plus was pressing the fast forward button. The way that he moved was just it was so quick, and so energetic, and it was so lightning fast. So he gets the touchdown that cuts it down to seven Oklahoma forces another punt from Texas, and then they got a touchdown tied the game. So when they go down, and they cut it from twenty one to fourteen from down fourteen and on it took four plays to make a fourteen point deficit go to tie game. That's just the way that you come back in a situation like that. But limited times is hit on big plays and down the stretch. Oklahoma was able to hit on the big plays to get back into the football game. But it doesn't end then I would have loved the game went to overtime. But the beauty of college football is someone you're not talking about before the game ends up becoming a big story. Because before the game we're talking about Tom Herman before the game. We're talking about Lincoln Riley before the game. We're talking about saying etlinger before the game we're talking about. Kyla Mark who is talking about Cameron decker? Who's talking about him decker the kicker, and once when Oklahoma has a twenty one point deficit go away and they come back to tie the game dot taxes was one that football game. Even if you're a Texas fan when you blew that lead. Did you think you were winning the game? There's no way you had a feeling of just a big nod in your stomach saying, they just blew the lead. It's not gonna happen. We're gonna lose an overtime. But Texas was able to block out that noise Texas was able to March down the field. And then Dicker the kicker hits a forty yard field goal. And this is a freshman kicker. How many times in college football? Do we sit there and say never trust kickers? Never just kickers just as Kentucky for crying out loud. And this kid he steps up on the big stage and drills a forty yard kick. So that game was everything you wanted in a college football game etlinger was tremendous. Kyla Murray bounce back after a really bad fumble? And he was great especially when he was looked like he was down and out. And also, let's give credit to Tom Herman does not that long ago. People on this network. And I've always been a big Tom Herman fan. I was able to be around him for a little bit through my temple connections. When he was at Houston. I saw the way quickly what he quickly did for that program. And I thought he was the right man for Texas. And I'm not saying all Texas back Texas says return taxes is winning the national championship. No. I'm not saying that there's still a lot of work to do. But I remember saying I'm I'll be the first one to say I picked to win the game. And I was wrong. But after Tom Herman lost the opening game to Maryland. I remember coming on this show and saying terrible loss awful loss. Bull people immediately with the lack of patients say fire the guy, this is ridiculous. I said neither look at Oklahoma game. I said he has USC and TCU. Let's see where he is after USC and TCU and if he loses both those games. Hi. Chastise you want be critical as much as you want lambaste them as much as you want. And then Tom urban after losing to Maryland. Takes down USC takes down TCU and dominates Oklahoma. Most of the way, let's the lead of that berate. But then his team was able to make the plays down the stretch, give credit to Tom Herman. All right. Let me get to three more games in the segment, Florida. And you Florida wins game twenty seven to nineteen disappointing for LSU because LSU after this has Georgia, Mississippi State and Alabama. There would have been a whole lot more intrigued with LSU with what they've been able to do so far this year with the way they start off the season. How you win game one and win it in a big way taken down Miami. And then you also beat Auburn come from behind. There would have been a lot of hype with or'sir on who's a great personality and entertaining head coach, and they would have went into this three-game stretch undefeated now no more because Florida gets the game. And they win the game twenty seven to nineteen. At the swamp when bro set takes the team down the field by himself to make it nineteen to fourteen if you had LSU like I did lying to you were feeling good wasn't over. But you you're feeling good. However, Florida quickly bounces back, boom. Boom. Boom right down the field. They make it twenty two fourteen. And then their defense, we told you the key for LSU in this season. Joe borough can't turn over the football and up until this point. He did not throw a single interception all year. But he gets picked for six and then interception late trying to force some things with this backed up against the wall. Those two interceptions were very costly. And LSU goes down to Florida twenty seven to nineteen. Now Notre Dame Virginia Tech when that game. Where Virginia Tech picks up some momentum at the half to make it seventeen to sixteen.

And it goes to fourteen seven Kentucky's offense couldn't do much Kentucky's defense. Data score on a third and one were they took a fumble forced a fumble and took it to the house that made it fourteen fourteen. This game goes to overtime. And man, this is one of the worst beats I've had on the year. Oh, my gambling picks up and good this. You'll be the first one to tell you I Kentucky getting five and a half..

Chris leaker the bear. Gonna join us as well BUSTER only on the playoffs with the brave still can't score all of that and much more. But mailman. Six Saturday, plenty to get two ton of under the radar games, some games very much on the radar. And you know, me it gets no bigger than what happens at the Cotton Bowl. And they've kept it at the Cotton Bowl. They haven't moved this thing to Jerry world. They better never do. It. Some call it Texas. Oh, you I firmly believe it has it must always be. Oh, you Texas. Today in Dallas and the longhorns appear to be back a little bit, right? This is one of three games giving us a ranked team against ranked him. I know this. If you bet on Texas game, you have a problem because it is the most unpredictable outcome in almost any given year when oh you plays, Texas. Mel, I would agree. I would agree Dr. Yeah. You throw all the records out. But I think this Oklahoma team with Cuyler Murray offensively is so much fun to watch. So entertaining who would have thought Dari nowkhah? Did. I didn't think holler Murray would be this good. And to be talking about him. Had he been available for the NFL draft the second or third round pick. He's that good. He's nine. Quarterback at quarterback. Wow. Because guess what? If you didn't make it a quarterback. You could be Antwan Randle will probably play somewhere else was four four speed as phenomenal athleticism toughness. He's all rode the football man, the Oakland as Billy bean, the Oakland A's who are no longer than the major league. Baseball playoffs will be happy to have cholera. But for now, he's an Oklahoma. Sooner. This Texas defense has to deal with him because we know Oklahoma's defense is challenged and Sam etlinger the quarterback you think about since throwing a couple of picks it out opening loss against Maryland seven touchdowns zero interceptions over the last four games. Completing almost seventy percent of his passes. Oklahoma secondary, very challenged. Yeah. They are pretty effective. Getting after quarterback though Dari with fifteen sacks. But on the back end of you can protect etlinger he will find some opportunities to get the ball to Colin Johnson, and as well L J Humphrey. And if that's the case Texas could hang in this game. And maybe porn upset if not Oklahoma's way too, many points can Texas on the outside contained CD, lamb and Hollywood Brown. And that's a huge question. Mark protects. They have not seen in offense. Like this all apologies to TCU. The frogs are not Oklahoma right now, not the way that that team is humming with the quarterback Cuyler Murray leading the charge. Here's head coach Lincoln Riley from the herbstreit and Fitzsimmons podcast by the major difference. You know, right now is collars outlet of capability, you know. It really hasn't changed a lot. Honestly of what we called. It's just you know, what Caisley one Baker would tuck it run on a scrambled. He'd get ten worked out. You know, Kyle has got a chance to go forty or fifty or collar pulls it on his own read. You know, he can go forty or fifty were Baker might have gotten, you know, twelve yards. I mean, that's that's been right. That's been the major difference. You know, collars, throwing the ball extremely well. AC been processed. Well, what we've asked him to do. And so we've been able to take off from where we from where we left it last year and just continue to do the same things continue to evolve and try to find different ways to give people problems Vegas has Cuyler. Second in the Heisman race right now behind only to go by Loa? Gosh, I wish somebody would have mentioned his name for Heisman before the seasons. I wish they would. I wish that former sooner or sooner grad. Hey, guys, say, hey, did a great job with that. I will say this star. You think pound always say who was the best player pound for pound on your team. You think about marquees Brown Hollywood from Hollywood Florida. I mean, four of their five games. He has a catch a fifty or more yards. He has about one hundred sixty eight pounds. Okay. He is going to be. I think a second round pick. Maybe a late one come late April in the NFL. And then you have collar Murray, maybe five nine and a half 195 those two I'll tell you talk about pound for pound collar Murray and marquees Brown phenomenal. Oh, he is a speedster is Hollywood Brown. All right. How about this one out of the SEC fifth-ranked LSU goes to Florida the hurricane Matthew situation of of last year? Makes this the second consecutive year. LSU goes to Florida. One of the last two games there. So when you're looking at this one, this is what I'm looking at it. You've got two teams that are playing really really good defensively. Right. And you've got to quarterbacks that are kind of growing before our eyes Joe borough for LSU fully pay Franks for Florida who can establish the run game. Who does not give up the big play. You look offense. I don't know that either team really has a lot of big play potentially gets this defense. This has the feel for a good old fashioned throwback twenty two seventeen type SEC game to me in Gainesville today. Todd Grantham defensive coordinator for Florida loves the blitz man. He's in a pregnant, what do you do your on at pass rushers? And that's where Florida's defense is an unimpressive sixty nine per carry average allowed so LSU run it pass rushers. Gitai polite. He's great pass rusher off the edge a move him around. Okay. Ceecee Jefferson that group they can get after you. But when you do that you put a lot of pressure and C J Henderson, Florida has a sophomore true sophomore corner. CJ hendrix. Remember that Henderson will become a great prospect down the road right now. He's a shutdown corner that allows Grantham to take more chances. And then you have a, you know, Cianci Gartrell Johnson you have. But you had the Henderson who is that kind of corner. It's you need to run this light. But defense and play it at a high level. I I'm a big fan of Justin Jefferson LSU's receiver who's the younger brother of former quarterback at LSU, Jordan Jefferson. He's kind of become the guy that Joe borough goes to to this point. And you know, a lot of talk this week about how Grantham is gonna play that tight man coverage and can not only can the LSU receivers break free from time to time against those Cornerbacks. You're talking about but can Joe borough be accurate enough with the football to allow them if they break free to make the plays after the catch. And that's certainly something to watch for at the swamp. They're all right. How about this one? Notre Dame your beloved fighting Irish into Blacksburg two weeks ago. Virginia Tech it's beat by Old Dominion come. Back last week with a backup quarterback after Josh Jackson breaks his leg in that game. Ryan Willis went into that game. And they struggled Ryan Willis with a week to prepare got ready for Duke and played really well threw for three hundred and thirty yards and three touchdowns. Did not throw an interception. The junior did Ryan Willis. But now he's going against the Notre Dame defense in a Notre Dame team with the world frankly to play for because they are in beautiful position right now for the college football blimp. This is the toughest game on the schedule. But it is tough. I mean, it's Blacksburg at night in the energy that just rolls through that stadium. When Metallica comes on. There's the hokies come into the football stadium. What makes the difference in Notre Dame Virginia Tech to decide if Notre Dame roles to eight six zero record on their quest for their first playoff berth. Fast start silence at crowded lane stadium in Blacksburg. That's what you wanna do. And I think for the third year sophomore quarterback, Ian book get off. I mean, he's a confident kid. He's got poise. He takes chances got a lot of confidence in that arm. Boy, I'd say he comes out. He's a gunslinger he'll just let it go and Dexter Williams. Running back getting him back the veteran as really helped did a great job against Stanford. But what I wanna see here is this offensive line for Notre Dame is a strength of. But Foster's defense is the front seven. They have some pass rushers and they got some interior guys. Okay. How will they deal with that defense without Alex bars, you say who's Alex bars he's are left guard. He's their captain. He's he's taking over Quinton Nelson at that spies played numerous roles on that offensive line. The last couple years. He's a potential second round. Pick was till he got hurt last week injured his knee against Stanford out for the year. That's a huge loss Notre Dame offensive line. That was without might mcglinchey. She and Quentin Nelson going into the year and bars was the key. Anthony the best player. He's out. How will you deal with that? And also for me, as you know, huge Notre Dame fan huge Baltimore Ravens fan which you do as a fan. Dr. You're always wondering am I going to be too optimistic and my two positive? So I kind of tempered that a bit as you know, I was worried about mission I'm worried about now I'm getting excited. I'm excited about Dexter Williamson again, but miles boykin quiet to previous games last weekend, Stanford miles boykin has eleven catches MAC the tight end, but you have the bars injury defensively. Jerry Tillery has been great defensive tackle. Konate. Linebacker, tranquil, joy and Busby shutdown corner. I'm excited now. And that's what I should be really concerned. They win what I'm happy they'll lose. So that's where I'm going to try to temper that a bit. But I think Notre Dame has got a lot of things fall into place. Unfortunately, low that Alex bars injury that left guard could be big as we move forward through the season is good as he Dexter Williams. Come back to he'd been banged up went for one sixty one last week against Stanford. It's a good defense. Stanford has not their best. But it's a good defense. You know, he's he's been around that program Notre Dame. Now, this is his fourth years never gone for more than about three hundred three hundred fifty yards in a season. And Josh Adams has been there, and it was good to see Williams succeed there. And and he'll get a chance against the bud foster coached hokey defense. They're so big big games. Oh, you Texas LSU Florida Notre Dame Virginia Tech so much more though in college football that we will get to as we move along. But I after one hundred years making shaving cream Barbara salts finally making razors. Well, that was a no brainer. Try the barbasol ultra six plus was ultra thin blades.

Number nineteen, Texas number seven, Oklahoma continued the Red River rivalry Saturday. Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Texas, Oklahoma, head coach Lincoln Riley with Kirk herbstreit and Ian. Fitzsimmons evaluate this Texas team versus the last few that you you've competed against. They're playing well, you know, they'd been good defensively. You know, they're good defensively. Again, they're in a little different without Maliki. And some of the guys are playing in the front, but they've and they lost a couple of guys on secondary. But it looks like they've got some some good young secondary players that are you know, that are doing a nice job form. So, you know, they're they're good schematically on defense doesn't coach Orlando does a really good job. And they've got good players. So I mean, it's no surprise that. They're that they're playing well there offensively, obviously, you know, probably the biggest key is you know, the quarterback has back. And and you know, he's he's getting better. You know, you get more comfortable with what they're doing schematically. And he's already got a lot of a lot of, you know, outstanding qualities that that we all saw as a as a as a young guy last year thrown into some some, you know, some tough positions, and he handled it well, and so you know, they've got some play makers on the outside. They're they're very they're skilled positions offense, very similar to you know, to what they've had last year. But I do think the quarterbacks better and looks like they're, you know, they're growing up front as well. So I think they're I think they're growing think they're getting better again in this game is it's almost hard to evaluate it with this game because. Yeah, you know, nobody plays like they do on tape. What this game? I mean, you know, we're going to get their best. They're going to get our best, you know. And it'll be the hardest and the best of all teams will play all year. Just probably like it was last year. So it's you know for for them probably looking at us. We may look a little bit different in this game than any other game. And they probably do the same as we look at them. So it's it's almost hard evaluated compared to the rest of the season Lincoln Riley, head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners with herbstreet and Fitzsimmons on the herbstreet Fitzsimmons podcast, Texas, Oklahoma. They're gonna meet for the one hundred and thirteenth time Saturday series began back in nineteen hundred has been played in Dallas since nineteen twelve Texas sixty one forty six and five all time again.

He's he's one just one of ten road games against ranked teams since two thousand thirteen and the one was a fourth quarter comeback against temples on read it today. So there, but there is something about Notre Dame that is different. And it was it was interesting. A new chapter host a book that we they have they have the look with book. I think I've said that times and over over now, and it's for real, but it isn't a real I mean two weeks ago when they made the switch, I guess wait forced you could see the perception of Notre Dame change before your eyes. Even though it was Wake Forest. It's not a bad Wake Forest, but you're seeing a team in Notre Dame put up points like they hadn't all season. Like, we didn't see him do last year. We didn't really see him doing. Two thousand twelve so this is a very different team that we're accustomed to seeing in one that it's hard to see them having a hiccup even this week. I know I know it's Blacksburg I know all of. I know. Virginia night game in Blacksburg, which I think is completely different situation. Right. When you have the greatest environments costs football, Ian book when I asked Brian Kelly about him. And I said why the change and he said it was very careful to say, listen, they love wimbush the guys on the team loving. They're very careful about making sure they handle this right way. But Brian Kelly when he started talking he got I mean, almost like doctor strange like he started talking about opening your mind offense in using Imaginaire. She sounds like Nick Saban talking about two of a protective of Jalen. That's it. But what the reason these guys are making these changes is because they know they can't they're thinking about Alabama already. They can't match them, right? In a Notre Dame's case, they can't match in-depth wise. They can't match them pass the first twenty two they can't match them in in the trenches. But if they have a game changer at quarterback, that's that could be the advantage. And so that's why they're making these shades. But you could see it on the field. I mean, and even when other guys are talking about him. It's like this whole other models. Boykin was just gushing. You could see absolutely a difference. And they know that's the only chance they have is the one one potential matchup advantage. Ryan mcgee. Matt Schick, Peter burns campus conversation. Notre Dame Virginia Tech tonight.

"He's got one tonight. Hi there. Chris more for Scotty. I could do Scotty all night. But it's not very entertaining. But it is for me because it's you know, I can. Talk to myself. I have a friend around dot ORG Friday night. Baseball playoff action on our screens, some minor college football in front of a pretty busy college football weekend. And obviously the NFL we get into week five we get into October. We get into some pretty close to must win games for some teams. Although you'll notice that when we get the thanksgiving three quarters of the teams will begin in all three of the teams will be. How's your Friday everything? All right. Been awhile since I've been in this tend to two AM eastern time chair Mike carber on the other side in his hat backwards. Like the thug that is and of course, the great ship ship. Doggy dog is running the board with shorts that you would not be. I mean, if you got them out of the been let's say at your local supermarket where people turn in what they won't wear. Not even supposed to be here today. If you got those shorts out, you would put them back in, but not chap. He got him out and said, hey fit. So put them on. That's it for who the bell tolls. So what do we have on the program that I'd been Kercheval college football coming up this hour next hour, Jimmy Eisenberg and a Friday night fantasy football calls, which you know, good luck to that. And I feel bad for the suicide pool guys because most of them are already out. Oh, how many guys how many guys are in here? I don't even know. Usually it put it up on the side of the post in there. But I haven't seen it this year. You know, who's in who's out? How many we got left? I got knocked out in the first week. So I stopped paying attention. They used to post it out there they used to. But I think that like pretty much everybody got knocked out like the first two weeks of the buffalo. Minnesota your your Bill. We knocked a lot of people out in week throw. You knocked out the country in week three. I mean, probably that probably ended the first week had Tampa beat New Orleans. You had a couple of big ones the first few weeks. And then the bills probably finished everybody off. And I think that bills win though, given the circumstances of where they had been like tap new were just names at that time. Yeah. Everybody thought New Orleans was a lot better than Tampa. But the bills played badly. I mean, the bills it sort of said, hey, we're really bad look at us. And I imagine that over the last five years is among if not the. Biggest upset in terms of what people thought and the fact not only did they win the game. They won the game in. It was like elver. Halftime. Hey, you think you can win it betting a watch this game? Heard many times people say there's only two kinds of gamblers losers and liars that kind of game is the one that made you think those people might be right. I don't think that's right. I just think if you're not disciplined than I think that's true. Then you're either a loser a liar. If you have to bet every game because you can't you can't deal with not betting. You got have action on the game. It's too important to you gotta have you gotta have something. Working then you're gonna lose because not all games should be bet. And really just the opposite. The people who are the people about four games a year. And they went through and they're happy with their winnings. And they move on. They're not forced about every week. But let's face it. That takes a lot of the fun out of it. And most people who don't have a gambling problem bet for fun. They bet to begin. It is fun. It's like going to the movies. I mean, it's entertainment. So. Planned to start with that. But there's so much going on. It's like over overdose here. Yankees Red Sox right now. It looked like it would be dull. And you know, what it's still may be but Boston hearts skipped the little quickly there with bases loaded at five two before labor Torres long at ball four with the bases loaded because if he had not it would have been five three and who knows? And right now who knows because Boston's bullpen isn't as good as the one thing. I do notice already and there are exceptions. And obviously Kershaw might be one. But here you see sale with a real quality start five innings Verlinden winner today, real quality start five and a third innings. Both guys go and five and a third. These are the best of the best. Now, this is ver- Lander at sale. These these are the cream of the crop. And they're getting. Credit and pats on the back for going five and a third. So this is not your dad's baseball. It's certainly not your grandad's baseball and. You got to watch it differently now. The fact that Torres struck out in that big spot probably will come back to haunt the. But the Red Sox still have to prove they can get the Kimbrell soda all the other teams interesting. No, how the Rockies have stopped hitting. We saw the cubs which you know, they have a tremendous fan base. And they didn't hit for a month and a half. You know, not for a month and a half. They got two runs in twenty two innings to get eliminated. They got one run in the lost Milwaukee on Monday. And then in the wildcard game on Tuesday. They got one run and thirteen innings. So that's two runs in twenty two innings and it played them the entire end of the season. They couldn't hit one of the one of the big drawbacks right now in baseball. Is it you can't manufacture runs anymore? So if you're not hitting home runs, you're not scoring. There's no in between. That's why the Red Sox and Astros are sort of favored a little bit. In the American League. While the Yankees aren't looked at as strongly is simply because the percentage of runners that score. For the Red Sox and Astros is higher. Then the percentage of runners that score for the Yankees their failure. With the bases loaded is typical of the whole season and a horrible year at the bases loaded and one hundred games and that a horrible year with the bases loaded. But they're just not a team that creates a lot of runs with doubles and gap IRS and other ways to score. They're just not and today the Astros who can create those runs hit four home runs in the game. They got seven runs in eight four homers. So. Those things are a little more versatile. The cubs proved not to be versatile. But it's interesting to watch it because as I said, the quality starts five innings the Yankees have loaded up on relief pitching, which will serve them. Well, and what would scare me if I was a fan of teams that are not in it right now. Is just how young Houston Cleveland Boston. And the Yankees are. They're young teams. Baseball hasn't been loaded with playoff teams that were young now baseball has turned that corner. The all star game is fully young players. And the playoff teams are full of young players. There's a lot of youth. A lot of youth. Look what Atlanta was able to do by bringing in some kids to get to this position at therein. So. It's a changing of the way the game is played. And it's interesting because they don't change the rules very often in baseball. But now your best hitter hits to strike outs. Are okay. Running is a lot less a part of the game. Hit and run is gone. Bunting for a base hit is basically gone. There's just a lot of negatives. Now about the game in terms of its motion. Right. I mean, really that's what sells the game is motion. We're gonna get the football early in the show early and often, and we should it is baseball season in the sense that it's playoff time. But it's also a long playoff all the playoffs hour long. Everything is long. It'll be a long time before we crowd a World Series champion. Pumpkin. The great pumpkin will have come and gone. When we crowd a. Champion. So. Yeah. He did not catch that that was a trap. So Yanks have something going again. With Brandon workman. Working two outs. Are I'm sorry. No outs and two on. For the AKIs in the seventh. So we'll keep you up to date on that college football this weekend, Texas, and Oklahoma. One of the better ones Notre Dame Virginia Tech one of the better ones..

Stampede is in the southeastern part of the country is with the rest of the world called about a Royal where you just roll in every wrestler that you have everybody into the ring at one time. LSU Florida this week. House the cow stampede Royal rumble. Yeah, but but to the rest to outside of the southeast roll rumble in the southeast Bunka stampede that phrase coined by dusty Rhodes as much better phrasing roll rumble, but we, yes, you really? I mean, I was trying to explain to Trevor metro, tremendous. Whoa, I'm from California, went to BYU. I've no idea what you're talking about summit. I was talking about the I mean, the fist fights going on between Notre Dame, wide receivers and Stanford defensive back and the the explanation of the bunk house. Stampede was the best insight we got from you about Stanford Notre Dame. No, no, totally. Well now, and that's what I do you think till you golf here? I know we like to throw rundowns, but this one says we have to get out of the tunnel. Time to come out of the tunnel on campus conversation. Got three top twenty five match ups here in week. Six, I will list the three to you. You tell me the matchup that you're watching if you could only watch one. All right. We got Notre Dame Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Florida at LSU in Gainesville, Texas, and Oklahoma at the state fair. If your TV was broken, you didn't have a tablet. You could only stick on one game for the entire game, which one of those three is can I do like the direct TV sports mix where you'll do. But the reason why is because I think all three of them are so intriguing because I don't know what in the heck happens all three of them because I played Florida. You know why. Right? It's all garnish. I feel this is the accoutrements that come with everything. I don't even. I couldn't even get within four letters spelling correctly. I'm gonna. I'm gonna go outside the LSU Florida game in say that it's Texas, Oklahoma. I'm getting out of my comfort zone as as I'm hanging out with you guys reason why is staying the reason why is because I'm told so much of Tom, Herman, he finds this way to be an openness, an underdog, right? He's the at the twelve games. He's been an underdog in his career is eleven and one. There's something about England outright win, eight outright wins. Right? And I'm intrigued by that because gloat Texas bag going against Cuyler Murray who now I would imagine he showed up for school on time in meetings on time, so he will get the start, which means he'll have nine touchdowns this year. But to me that that's intriguing because I think I don't think Florida LSU consists of a team that can play in the college football playoff there. It is right. But I do believe that Oklahoma has that opportunity and on the outside looking in looking to. Play themselves into chick, and that's why I want to see what happens in one of the and I call it the shootout game that it just it seems that strange things happen. And I just liked that that series first time in six years that they've both been ranked while the top twenty five so that that's good. That's good for college. Football? Yeah. It's just a little too late in the season because Texas has always ranked in the preseason, whether they're terrible or not. If they played, they played that game of September. That number would be like every game would have been between ranked teams even when they're wanting three voters like audits, Texas, man, Daryll way back. There from Old Dominion. You're back in all right? Yeah, they're, they're not. There's also still in the bottom. Ten? Am I wrong in my ranker's though? No, I've got Oklahoma, Texas, LSU, Florida, and then Virginia Tech, Notre Dame. But then what's interesting is I think that of the three games in my answer is the Red River rivalry, which is what I call it because I like literally, I would I would be I would watch that one, but I think the game that could potentially have the most impact on the playoff is the one Blacksburg I just saw. I just don't under- Damon person. Stanford, they look great. I mean, they're mutt. They are bigger as I seen him in person. So were years, they're bigger stronger faster..

"Well, number three on this list this week, I think it would surprise most people that it's even on the list is Clemson on the road outweighed fours one week after Clemson, narrowly avoided defeat at the hands of Syracuse. I think in this case, it's just a matter of Clemson is very likely to win this game, but has so much to lose if it did lose to Wake Forest number two, Oklahoma, Texas, Red River showdown. Obviously, we're talking playoff predictor here, but there are major big twelve implications for this game. Oklahoma could have a sixty one percent chance to win the conference with a win thirty six with a loss. Texas could get up to twenty three percent chance to. Win the big twelve with a wing. And then the most important game this week from a playoff perspective is Notre Dame Virginia Tech. This is Notre Dame's toughest remaining tested the season according to FBI, but I think says something about their schedule. Yeah, it does. Look. There's only one team left on that scheduled. It's ranked in the polls this week, and that's Virginia Tech and it within PI Virginia text, the only top thirty team left on the schedule. So that's a big reason that it is the highest playoff impact game of the week because it's on paper, the toughest hurdle remaining for the Irish and the regular season. Notice that in the top three, we didn't hear LSU at Florida and undefeated team at a one loss team. Why did that would not make the cut? It's just a matter of plan for Intersil thinking to LSU is a long shot in terms of the playoff. It has a little bit to do with the quality of LSU. It's not completely sold on them, but at the same time, the real issue here is what else you got. Got in front of it. It's going to have to pull off several major upsets in order to actually be a playoff contender. As a result. It doesn't have that much to lose. Should it fall to Florida? And I should say FBI actually thinks Florida should be a slight favorite in this game. All right. We turned some some talking this week on the podcast about some of the things that we were most surprised by guess during the first month of the season, one of the things that has not surprised us has been the performance of what we thought were the best teams in the nation coming in. It seems like all of those teams that people loved in the preseason as the favorites to win the power conferences have if not maintained, even reinforced their positions as the favourite. What are the numbers tell us as far as where the favourite stack up now compared to where they were in the preseason in the preseason, Heather dishes story on the fourteen teams with at least a one percent chance to make the to win the playoff to win the national title. She revisited this this week. It's down to nine, and I thought it was interesting. All nine came from the list of fourteen. So there's been no new team to really burst on the scene. And so I think that's really dig it of of a season that has been largely chalk to this point. Yeah, they kinda pared down the list because I think what we've seen for the most part is losses in the second tier. I think Washington would be the only team that we would have considered top tier in the preseason. That's lost a game so far. And that was a game that you know a lot of people thought they had a chance to lose given the, you know, the nature of it on the road, but you know not exactly neutral against Auburn. But yeah, all the other ones from Alabama and Georgia in the SEC to how state in the big ten, Clemson and the ACC. Even though Clemson has looked a little shaky, the rest of that conference has been so weak that you still feel just as confident and Clemson coming out of there as you did before. So it has spent a weird one, and we're..

Yes, I will. I will there's a lot of options there and bring bring heartburn medicine. Okay. So before we go on to what happened this week. Let's go back to what happened last week. And that's been the talker. College football, really the Clemson situation Herbie with Trevor Lawrence listen before he got hurt. He wasn't really playing. Well, they had to survive and hang on and come back to beat Syracuse. What do you make now of them going forward with Lawrence as their starting quarterback assuming he's going to plan? It looks like you will. Yeah. Yeah. I mean. Very capable. And that's the reason they went with him. We call. It aren't Jayme day last week. It was so much being talked about about Kelly Brian and quarterbacks today these these guys now leaving. I and my comment near the end of the discussion was one thing. That's kind of getting lost. Here's dallas. They lost Kelly. Fran. You know, what what if God forbid ankle current or some kind of knee or injury of some kind and now now you no longer. It's been there and done that. And now you're going to do guy that really hasn't played obviously that played out and kicked up the late in the game. And Clemson to their credit found a way to get it done and won a game and survived. But I think they're gonna play the rest of the year. At least now is has some of that some of that experience it'd be able to call back on. And I think the Clemson coaches that you know, you always talk about quarterbacks talk about the backup die listening in meetings and getting reps in practice but clearly code yellow. Jeff Scott and Brennan streeters quarterback coaster. Incredible job chase Bryce because that guy never been anywhere close to that situation and for him to lead that team victory. If there is another. That's capable of raking throws and making good decisions. So it is what it is. That's where they are Kelly. Bryant is obviously moving on. I don't know what else really to say about it. And I think we all better get used to this kind of thing happening on a regular basis like college football her her joining us again game day will be at the Oklahoma Texas game. But Herbie will be calling Notre Dame Virginia Tech ABC at eight o'clock in Blacksburg tough place to play. We'll get to that game in a moment. But that game you had a Penn State Ohio State now, listen you, and I both come from big schools Notre Dame and Ohio State where we love the atmosphere for our games. But man, I'll tell you her be I can't tell you. How impressed I was with that whiteout and that atmosphere there and then for that game for eight minutes to go in the game for Penn State. David twelve point lead would you geared more toward Ohio State winning that game or Penn State just not doing enough in those last eight minutes and losing that game. Why I think if you're looking at the whole eight minutes. A lot of credit. They're down eight thirty on twelve that crowd. Start their second last cry right in front of that student's section. Benjamin. Victor makes it that. Touchdown play. That was just incredible of happened in replays wasn't being down twelve phone. Just like that big score touchdowns. Ninety five and then their defense steps up and makes the play. They get the ball back, by the way, like their own six yard line on re-outlined, whatever it was the loudest part of the stadium. Ended up getting a few play in their offense deserves a lot of credit for making adjustments and finding ways to get some positive yards for doing Haskins and those receivers and running backs. And then I think at the end of the game, you know, the Ohio State scores it over to only up on and you can trace McSorley. I mean, you got two minutes. Three timeouts all they have to do is getting field goal range to win this game. And you got nine over there. This far from over. And they get the ball. They're trying to move it moving it moving across midfield. And they don't states defense, of course, forces the the fourth down that they both call a timeout and kind of figure out what they wanna do. And we're all just a given trace McSorley is going to drop back to throw and he's probably going to take off in scramble, and he's in the scramble for the first down which gets done multiple times. Or is he going to scramble just to the line of scrimmage finds somebody break open throw for the first down to me. Those were the only two options on that on that last play and. Taught themselves after all those timeouts. We got a certain look they try to run it and that part. So the answer your question. Ohio State to me in the last eight minutes definitely won the game in front of that crowd. Penn State shocked all of us with with the place election on on that last black Kirk herbstreit with an AllState knows that football season is mayhem. And that's why they're reminding fans that have mayhem can show up on game day. Imagine what can happen the rest of the week. So better get protected with AllState and clearly the way that game played out was mayhem in a good way for Ohio State and in a bad way for Penn State as you look at this week, schedule Herbie, what is the best chance for something crazy to happen. Is it Virginia Tech upsetting the apple cart and Blacksburg gets Notre Dame? What else do you see? Well, there's there's Florida and LSU which which is a huge game with Florida coming back home. They want a few games. Now feeling pretty good about themselves beating Tennessee and Mississippi State and playing great defense. That's got the makings of a seventeen thirteen really low scoring game. But can Florida knockoff number five LSU's is one that stands out to me. But if you're looking for the potential upset where Notre Dame's got to be careful that game would stand out don't seem but Kentucky. The Kentucky basketball Mark stoops man. They've got rolling right now. Lexington. And now they gotta go on the road. Take on Texas am who's three and two and Kentucky's thirteenth in the country. If you're Kentucky's able to knock off Texas A&_M, they got bandy, and then they got Missouri. I mean, there's a very very strong chance that they're sitting there eight oh as they get ready for Georgia coming to Lexington. So that's become a become a story especially Kyle field and win. The Notre Dame game. We talked last week. I mentioned you guys Stanford brace yourself you're going to be heavily favored in every game that they have remaining and they start to become a real player for the play offs. And when the playoff rankings start to come out, forget, the AP and the coaches poll where we'll Notre Dame be right now, we have a number of undefeated teams. So the committee will have their hands full once they start unveil their rankings, but with Ian book, and what this offense is doing right now the quick decisions the balance the efficiency they've been playing great defense all year. So. They've got to go on the road. Don't forget. This is one of those kind of a set up games because Virginia Tech laws to Old Dominion couple of weeks ago. They lost their starting quarterback. And then they bounce back last week and beat Duke who's a top twenty five team on the road kinda got their their confidence back so lane stadium. Always a tough place to play. So it's another opportunity to really see how good this Notre Dame team is in a in a tough environment to me one of the interesting games of the week. I think the perfect word used to me as efficient that that offense has been more efficient with book running it for sure tough game certainly in Blacksburg. So let me ask you this of the top of the rankings with Alabama one Georgia to LSU five. We know the SEC they all kind of play one another one way or another and they can knock each other off. So as far as number three Ohio State number four, Clemson number six Notre Dame number seven Oklahoma all undefeated of those fourteen which do you think has the easiest road to be in the final four. You know, I would of those I would say Notre Dame. Because they've got to go to Virginia Tech. They've got to go to north western. They've got four to stay at home. USC on the road. Syracuse. Syracuse is a home game which is big for them in Syracuse going to light up a scoreboard run that that you know, that uptempo kind of the old Angeles. Latino ravers and they got a veteran quarterback. So I you know, how it is. What's the rankings come out? And if you're up at the top five top four every week, there's a landmine out there like every week when there's foregone conclusions. Oh, no problem. They're playing navy. Okay. That's a win. And you lose, you know. So there are are tough games out there for them. But if you're comparing them to other people's schedule, I think Notre Dame, I guess challenge. Anybody to say who's going to be favored the rest of their games by many points as Notre Dame. I don't think there's anybody. Probably in that category. So name has the easiest way to get there. After some of the wind doesn't mean that they're just gonna easily run the table starting this week in Blacksburg, and we'll see how that plays out. You will be there for that game. And you'll also be at college game day again at the classic corral at the Texas State fair on sure big tax will be looming over you in the background in advance of the Red River rivalry Red River rivalry between Oklahoma and Texas tundra.

"You're coming out of your backfield, the team leader, and motivator and leader charge. All you have to do is play mistake free football as a quarterback in putting your team in bad situations. Don't be afraid to put the ball because you've already mentioned the pressure that Kentucky brings is gonna be worth travel defense when you look at Josh L and in various west those have play makers that they bring to the table, and I don't think killing modest gonna have a very relaxed pocket. So we'll see how it turns out. I still feel like Mark stoops is going to bring it a better unit jimbo's team still a little bit younger, especially on defense care. Stop the run game and doesn't get along. Extremely quick and Kentucky right now. It doesn't look like they're gonna get tired. All right. We'll see Trayvon Williams feel slighted there all the attention on Benny snow and Trayvon Williams hundred fifty two yards couple touchdowns against Arkansas last week. But this Kentucky defense much better than the hogs. But I will say. If ain't gonna take advantage of that Kentucky defense may do it. In the first half cash Daniels are cash Daniel the linebacker. He is suspended for the first half because at targeting, and he is the leading tackler there on that wildcat defense. So that'll be interesting as well. And I can't wait. I love games from college station that have meaning I also love games from Blacksburg that I'd meaning and Notre Dame undefeated. They made the quarterback switch in book. Is there? They get Dexter Williams back last week that parlays into one hundred sixty yards on the ground. Look Tony Jones junior. He's banged up. He may not be able to go Armstrong's out with a knee injury. They lose their left guard Alex bars he's out they have a couple pretty good defensive guys though defensive end. Tillery seven sacks between him and Coney. Those guys top of the line as far as that Notre Dame defense, but drew tranquil another solid linebacker he's questionable with a hand injury. So we'll see how Notre Dame goes on the defense for Virginia Tech just in day. He may have found somebody. Not only to replace Josh Jackson for the time being. But maybe for good with Ryan Willis, this is going to be interesting. You know, Blacksburg is going to be jumped jumping they're gonna unveil a statue. I guess a Frank beamer prior to the game another great environment. Notre Dame Virginia Tech, and we know vodka lost ODU. So they will be totally focused for this game. The question is are they good enough? And what do you know about Ryan Willis, how good is this kid going to be Corey? Ryan Lewis is gonna be a great player. I think this is gonna be home cooking as far as the environment concerned. This'll be the best case scenario that he has to perform because Blacksburg on a Saturday night. He's gonna be electric, especially when you consider your bringing in one of the premier programs to play so ball across the board. So I think this is going to be a great situation for willing to have every opportunity because he's gonna have the ball. And who they and I mean, it's obvious. He's a quarterback. But the key situation is going to be how he responds to the pressure that Notre Dame is gonna put on him because I feel like Notre Dame is gonna have any trouble scoring the ball. I think Ian book is then a very very big momentum swing on the positive and as far as the change a quarterback. I think this was a great move on the authors. I think he's done nothing. But motivate the guys on the defense aside because now they get an opportunity to to try to clean their ears ears back in some scenarios and get out to the parents were on the other end. And I think that's really where we're gonna find out if Willis is ready to grow. Because the stage is going to be extremely big. Yes, he that a home environment. Yes. You've got everybody at his back, and he's got a great team in front of him. But I think this is gonna be one of the times with Notre Dame is going to be the clear, clearly the better the better unit. And I think especially it's going to be recognizable when they have to pay us back and get up the pastor and put some pressure on your quarterback like with us. Great stuff from.

Was we thought most people thought only fourteen barely even fielding a team in a coaching staff and the spread was only fourteen and we said colleague Lisa gift that is a gift from you even said you'd get on the plane. No, that's why they keep the lights. I know. I said I'd go thousand dollars on the horn origin. Enjoy it the work of the devils gambling. That's worker the devil. There's nothing such thing. As a sure bet. No nothing out. There is one thing for sure they know they're they're just better than they know. I I I would really like to know how. That they thought obviously, it's not that they thought Maryland was any good. It's the day knew the Texas is not that good. There's no way. There is no upside for Marilyn everything wrong. Those guys had every reason to get small, right? Twelve thousand when when the first sign of adversity that they were gonna go. Yeah. They scored the first time they had the ball easily. Oh, yeah. Easily with about three plays. And that freshmen who caught passes through touchdown. It is. Yeah. Otherwise, it's. I'm not gonna make excuses for us completely. But it is hard to figure a college football because they don't train long enough because I don't think they practice long enough. They don't have any practice games. I will say you don't know what you're going to get that first game. There's some teams that look sharp as heck Notre Dame Virginia Tech LSU LSU. And there's other, ma'am. Do you think would be a mass that looked like a man? Yeah. Florida state willy willy Taggart's. You're really accomplished coach. I thought hey, look horrible terror. Look at hair out there, but kicked so I don't know how it all plays out. I don't know about. Oh, you one thing. How about oh. You didn't miss a beat against a team that had won ten straight lane kiffin team at one ten straight. Yeah. That that. I think typically you'd say gosh, that's Florida Atlantic. So what? But they're really not bad not bad that I actually was kind of impressed with that. And they're gonna get you know, they get UCLA. What you thought? Oh my gosh. You've got beat by Cincinnati. Yeah. So home at home at the Rose Bowl. And I would assume Oklahoma roles. I would assume I think you're right. Notre Dame is that was that was impressive where that's an athletic Michigan team that had a bunch of players back, and they they handle them. Well, they were coats. Well, the defended really well when in doubt just play good defense, and you always have a chance and they did Harbaugh Harbaugh is catching all though, he should it. Just you've got the same record is Brady Hoke. Yeah. You keep thinking it's going to be better. It's going to be better. And that was important game for him. I thought and they were not much of a factor. Yeah. Ohio State without urban Meyer on hence state. What the world Appalachian state takes over time say it's pretty good. Yeah. But see there's there's one of those things where you don't play. Well, you don't play in game one. But you close the deal you win. Just win Texas goes to RFK in front of twelve thousand people nine thousand of them cheering for Texas. You don't play. Well, you thought if you pick stupid penalties, but you close and win. Yeah. Didn't play well game one. It'll get better right now. Whatever you do you don't get an L. David bay. The Kansas has now won three. They shouldn't play football. There's Kansas professor is catching a lot of flack because he said, what should be said about a lot of programs play football is don't waste the money on football. Right. You love your basketball and Kansas basketball who expensive it's a money loser. Right. And he was not. I don't think for Kansas Kansas gets all that money. They get they get the same amount Texas does except for the lower network when they divvy out the share the big twelve money, you're gonna tell me the Kansas football program does not lose money. Yeah. I'll tell you that because of the revenue from from the big twelve if they lose money, they shouldn't play Jeff Ward and.
"notre dame virginia tech" Discussed on Behind the Bets
"I think nine was Willis, right? Nor gone. Okay. But Jonathan Garvan who had huge games against a Notre Dame, Virginia Tech last year, the strips acts, they love the freshman Russo. The linebackers are all three year starters offense. I think they've been pleasantly surprised at the skill position with what they have. Okay. I think you're gonna see a lot of DJ Dallas lining up a bunch of different spots. So got Homer backup, Travis home or a lot of a lot of people think Lynn guard is step in from day one and be the guy they like home or Homer is a very, very, very like, serviceable. Glynn words, planning, Dallas take some of the carries people forgetting about jokes, younger brother, everyone. Everyone mentions the freshman tight end, but joke been fantastic. Harley is a playmaker I think for them as well. I think they have more playmakers then maybe I wanna believe or maybe they people want to believe. Nationally only because of the way the year ended for them it. It's totally on here. I and do the year last year. He was terrible. They didn't have Walton. They didn't have on Richards. 'cause Herndon all are. Walton in harder in the NFL Richards's hopefully back if we get the Molly grow as year who at least was able to make big plays and better decisions earlier in the year, then then then then then they win this game twenty four points when the game. Sign me up for twenty four right now in twenty how we were talking about mistakes. That's why I think this is a twenty four seventeen twenty four twenty type game. But how we talk about what game you coughing. It's going to go under like Auburn, Washington versus Notre Dame. I this one would be like the least confident and staying under because I think this is a game where mistakes and good defense could turn into big mistakes, non offensive, touchdowns short field setting points. So while I say twenty four twenty I could easily see this one going over it with a couple of not if it's at turnover. Chain comes out. LSU breaks a kick at cre- Williams gets a pick six. I mean, you could see a couple of scores in this punt return game. Both teams is enormous because that's hidden yard as you talk about where you can get. Field goals obviously are key. But it just a want both him in Miami did it, but you wanna see on the state. LSU has a lot of proven to do, but the best thing I feel about LSU is in the last couple of weeks, they they know that it's not. It's not. They're not holding themselves higher, they know they gotta go out and Jerry bigger opener. This this weekend for a team for the direction that their season is going to head that LSU. You lose this game, you're probably going to be three and five. I mean, Michigan. Notre Dame. We talked about that Boise's on a different different level, Auburn, Washington. I mean, you wash me. Yeah, Miami doesn't have a lot of games to get wins, their schedule sleep. They have this game the other month. They have Florida state about after that. Jimmy tech for playing Clemson is likely a big dog in the game. I'll say no. We talked about burrow. He has a chance to win over a campus more than anybody in. But the bear likes canes quickly. On the way out Monday night you'll be in Tallahassee. Right. I watch not being Tallahassee. I on being Tallahassee. This long story. Okay. Okay. My wife ankle surgery gotta be Hong long. We need to get home kittens out. Right. Well, they actually like to go out and wander. NF runs, eat leaves and put swat bugs and Baroness. We need to take care of the animals and make sure my wife can. The move bedouin, vast, two weeks, get home, take care, bear takes zone. The numbers fifty, two and a half. It's Regina. Tech at at Florida. State over over line is is over is getting into danger Ville. It's over seven, seven and a half play the side. I've I've said, plenty of times people are probably sick of me saying that floor states, the biggest wildcard to me in the country. It if feels like Flint as been so quiet. I, I liked the guy. I feel like a polished offense come in, Josh Jackson will take more chances. I still can't get over how Virginia Tech doesn't have a running back anymore. Crazy about a stable. Have this. I'm actually really fired up to watch this game..
