I think they're going to see that people, but they just left. So we had two bills. I think we did very well the Republicans held except for two the Republican gel to or not there. They couldn't they were able to be there. So there were two votes, but even with tunein votes. I think they would have been good votes for us. It's fifty to forty seven we won. But we need sixty votes because of the sixty vote rule, and so I just really want to thank the Republicans for holding again on the other one that was the opening up as fifty to forty four, but you need sixty votes. So it's a long way short and a lot of that a lot of those votes were based on the fact that there was hurricane relief for certain states. Spending without Albany for the wall just reopened. Why wouldn't be happy? I wouldn't be happy. But we have a lot of alternatives honest. Everybody look for the most part people in grave what I say everybody. I would say almost everybody agree. We have to have border security. We have to have a wall in order to have border security. You cannot have border security without wall. And then we can play games or we could talk about technology. We can talk about drones flying around, you know, right now. Formed is an eight thousand person caravan and the caravan is heading our way, congratulations. We have another one we stopped the first one we stopped the second one. I wouldn't say that Tijuana's too happy, but they're happily living in Tijuana right now and a lot of them have gone back, but we stopped it. But it's very tough. And if we didn't have a wall in those areas, it would have been very hard to stop them. We have the military and we have the voter patrol. They've done an incredible job in ice has done. An incredible job all over the country. Frankly, we've removed thousands of MS thirteen and others out of our country. But if we had a wall, we wouldn't have that problem. It would be great. So we have a lot of alternatives. But I'm just honored that almost all of the Republicans voted for our Bill is the Bill that we were really focused on, but we had almost all of the Republican. So the end result was fifty to forty seven. The Democrats lost one. That came over to our side. So they pretty much held and we held and again, we were missing two Republicans. They couldn't vote they would not here. Moonlit shutdowns. I have to find out after this meeting. We'll find out, but right now Mitch McConnell's made it with Chuck Schumer, and they'll have to see what happens there meeting to see if they can work out something maybe on a temporary basis where we start. But I have we have a lot of alternatives. There are a lot of people that want this to happen. I'll tell you who wants us to happen. The military wants this to happen because this is a virtual invasion of our country of drugs of human traffickers of so many different things have criminals, it's an invasion of our country and the military wants to stop at the border patrol wants this to happen.

"Again or your host rich Ackerman. Tilting the journals we have one game left on Sunday. Vikings Baer signed should be gone should be an even better one tomorrow night chiefs, and the Rams so ten games in the books and Jodi we had a lot of good ones at the count this up real quick one two three four five six seven eight nine ten ten games that were three points or less and most of them decided is within the last ten seconds of the game one way or the other which you can't ask for more exciting football nine today and the Thursday night game, obviously was a three point game as well. So we had some highlights and some unfortunate instances where Alex Smith was carted off. We have a potential quarterback change in Tampa Bay. We have an interesting situation developing in Baltimore where Lamar Jackson gets his first started gets his first win in the same day and the Steelers they just keep they just find ways to win. And give credit to Ben Rothlisberger. Tough day today. Do a bunch of picks. He had one pick that he kinda got a break died was called back because of a roughing the passer penalty, which again, that's the penalty this year and awaited. It's been judged and called that bothers me maybe more so than any other penalty. They bend over backwards to protect the quarterback said I don't want Ben treated any differently. But he is a big guy, and it's taking more hits than maybe any other quarterback in the league over his very lengthy and highly productive career, but he led them down the field when he needed to he scrambled in he dove into the end zone for the game winning touchdown. Mr. Ramsey who will trash talk with. Absolutely anybody had some less than complimentary things to say about Ben Rothlisberger leading up to the game. So Ben got the last laugh pretty.

"Again, or your host rich Ackerman. Donald. So I owe estate wins and is now bowl eligible. Northwestern wraps up the big ten west with a win Notre Dame and Florida state are just underway in Chile south bend and also, Texas and Texas Tech underway as well. Bama. Roles again, Oklahoma holds off Oklahoma state, forty eight forty seven and Georgia has just jumped in front. I mean, I should say Auburn has jumped in front of Georgia by a score of seven to three. Michigan wins ninth in a row. Forty two seven over Rutgers in Washington state also picks up win number nine knocking off Colorado. Thirty one seven so the buffaloes right now are five and five. They had started the season at five and has gone south in Tennessee knocks off Kentucky twenty four seven. So back to back losses for the Wildcats. Just a crushing blow after the Georgia loss last week. Not surprised, and it was a great story last week going into Kentucky basketball country. Actually has a chance to get something. Yeah. The air came out of that balloon pretty darn quickly over the last eight days, we'll see if it'll stay and they Clemson balloon tonight. They are in chestnut hill play jam packed alumni stadium against Boston College. Trying to remain on beaten out a chance to catch up with the Tigers head coach earlier in the week. And I said from the outside this team has seemingly gotten better and better each week. What has been the biggest factor about this team, which is out of terrific season in terms of its development. I think just just the focus in the leadership that we've had. I mean, these guys have been amazing. I mean, just really locked in its into what they want to achieve and and easy to come to work with every day. They they've been so consistent would their preparation and the leaders on this team, we got this is the most veteran team I've had have done a great job with our young players in kind of, you know, sat in the charge for them tempo for them and modeling the way, we do things. And so it's been a fun group to be weird we've gotten better and better as year has gone, we've developed good depth. And I think that we created our identity in all three phases have really done a good job of creating energy for each each other and complement each other. We go ask four games in particular. We've been winning that turnover margin. And and. So all those things have been a good combination force for sure also winning by an average of fifty one which isn't too shabby sometimes we look for defining moments. How much was the win over Syracuse one of those Trevor Lawrence's first game he gets her. Chase Bryce makes a big play on fourth down lay Travis at the end was brilliant. That day was was that the start of all this really starting to click. Well, I I think that was definitely one of the big moments along the way, but but we we we start over every year. And it's really, you know, I always tell people if you haven't put the work in January February March April through the summer, you know, it's too late when you get when you get the game day, and it's it's game for whatever and you down in the fourth quarter. May you're you're all that matters. And I it started really when we started over in January and this just the development of the leaders on this team and so forth. And so there are a lot of moments, but that's definitely one of those defining moments within this season for sure, you know, because we had had you know, what potentially could be big distractions and and things like that. Obviously kelly. Deciding to move on. And that was a lot of emotion involved in that. And 'cause they go man that we we really love and care forward. And and so it was now you you're you're you're you made the change. But now you're backup is a guy who really hadn't played much and then you get into the game. And you're you're you're tackles out. You're starting corners out. We had another player starter out. And then and then on the whole the corner and a half in your new starting quarterback goes out. And so it was a it was a very challenging day. But you saw the resolve of our team the love that our team has for each other their fight. And you know, we found a way to win the gate so after that we just kind of have taken off. So I definitely feel like that was a big time defining moment within the season when you had made the change Trevor Lawrence. And you also went to Shawn Watson in the middle of the season. I'm not sure those two are related. But is there a preferred spot to buy that guy time to get ready for when the change is made? And by the same token, also give them enough time to succeed should that team? Go far enough in the season. Yeah. I mean, there's really none of that was part of it. Just simply based on where we were at the time. I mean, you know, after the first three games, you know, we we were still kind of in the same spot as far as we still going to play both of them. Kelly was still going to be the starter. But after the Georgia Tech game. I mean, it was just it would just where we were at that time. And you know, we just felt like the right thing to do was to start. Trevor Kelly would've continued to play for sure, but you know, things changed on his and and we gotta move forward. But you know, ideally, you'd like to have that done before the season in a perfect scenario. You like to kind of know who who your who your starter is if you have a solidify guy before the season, but that's just you have to play the hand you're dealt every year. And that's kind of where we were. We felt like coming in. It was close to guys deserve the play. And you know, if if it changed it, we would all know it and we see it on the field. And and that's that's exactly what happened talking with Clemson head coach, Dabo Sweeney and Trevor Lawrence has really done a fabulous job. So far he seems to pick things up very quickly. What is it about him that you like the most or that stands out the most I like it humility very humble kid. Great work ethic loves to prepare. He processes things very well, very high football IQ. But but I mean, his his poise and then obviously his skill set that he has for the condition is is unbelievable. You know, he's six six hundred. Seventeen pounds and and very accurate thrower. Not just not just a guy that has a ton of Lassie, eat an accurate thrower. And really has great command of what we're doing in understanding of defense on defense that defensive line which has been Fabulous So far decides to return to school for one more year and and chase that national title once again when they make that kind of commitment, how do others fall in line. And and do you feel any pressure that to repay them for that that loyalty at all? No. I mean, they came back on their own merit. I mean, they all certainly could've left, but but they made that decision. I mean, we do I rose to just get them information. And and then they have to make the decision because they're the one that has to live with. And so my job is to is to give them the best possible chance to be successful and into to surround them with the same type of commitment from the staff from the support staff from the other players because these guys are unbelievably committed, and you know, I want to see him leave here with another championship. I would love that. Because they deserve it. They've they've worked so hard. And you just want to everything again, they help them have a great final experience. And it's been amazing being windows guys because they've been incredibly focused since they made the decision to come back. They made it for different reasons. But they all at the same spot as far as what they wanted to achieve within the season spinal year. So it's been exciting. It's hard to believe how fast it's going. We're going in the game ten next week a senior day for us. And and just could not have a better group of guys to to to work with everyday. It's November as you've said before it's a championship. Phase time, you're unbeaten everyone you're facing. Now, this is the equivalent of their bowl game for coach. That was a that is the defending national or has won a national championship. I should say how do you handle that and impart that message to your team? Well, it just it just all built together. I mean, you know, this is the biggest game of the year. But so so game one and game two in game three. And that's just really what we do in in all builds. I mean, we we stay focused on what we're doing. We have very consistent preparation plan every week that doesn't vary. It doesn't matter who we play were preparing the same same way this week as we did all the way back to Georgia Southern in game three or whatever that was. So we treat every opponent with great respect. And we try to pair every week for four quarter game. And we just we we have a high level accountability. We we really try to perform to the standard that we set at each position know winning performance. So just being consistent again with with how we approach things weekend and week out. And, but as you get to this point, you know, they've had their head down in the ground. Grinding grinding. And now, you get to a point where you like man, you can kind of look up a little bit and kind of see where you hope to go. But then you just put your head back down, and you go back to work because you only get you get there. One step at a time. You know, you can't win in your twelve until you win. You know, you don't get to skip ahead. You just gotta stay focused on the task at hand. And what you're doing in the moment talking with Clemson head coach, Dabo Swinney. You're very big on family. So just how special isn't to not only be able to coach your son. But to be able to enjoy the success that you're having together. It's really cool. It really is. You know, especially for me here. It comes from because you know, my boys in the coaching profession lot of times. You know, you're you're you're moving around all over the place, but I've been so blessed. This is my sixteenth year at Clemson, Montana's the head coach. So my boys have grown up here. I mean, they were four three when we moved here. And and my baby clay was born here.

"Rich Ackerman McDonnell. Iowa State wins and is now bowl eligible. Northwestern wraps up the big ten west with a wind Notre Dame and Florida state are just underway in Chile south bend and also Texas and Texas Tech underway as well Alabama roles again, Oklahoma holds off Oklahoma state, forty eight forty seven and Georgia has just jumped in front. I should say Auburn has jumped in front of Georgia by a score of seven to three. Michigan winds ninth in a row. Forty two seven over Rutgers in Washington state also picks up win number nine knocking off Colorado. Thirty one seven so the buffaloes right now are five and five. They had started the season at five and has gone, south and Tennessee knocks off Kentucky twenty four seven. So back to back losses for the Wildcats. Just a crushing blow after the Georgia loss last week. Not surprised, and it was a great story last week going into Kentucky basketball. All country actually has a chance to get something. Oh, yeah. The air came out of that balloon pretty darn quickly over the last eight days, we'll see if it'll stay and they Clemson balloon tonight, they are in chestnut hill. Play a jam packed alumni stadium against Boston College. Trying to remain on beaten out a chance to catch up on the Tigers head coach earlier in the week. And I said from the outside this team has seemingly gotten better and better each week. What has been the biggest factor about this team, which is at a terrific season in terms of its development. I think just just the focus in the leadership that we've had. I mean, these guys have been amazing. I mean, just really locked in is into what they want to achieve and and easy to come to work with every day. They they've been so consistent would their preparation and the leaders on this team, we got this is the most veteran team I've had have done a great job with our young players in kind of, you know, in the charge for them tempo for them and Martin Lee the way we do things. And so it's been a fun group to be where we've gotten better and better as year has gone. We've we've developed good debt. And I think that we created our identity in all three phases have really done a good job of creating energy for each each other and complement each other. We go last four games in particular. We've been winning that turnover margin. And and. So all those things have been a good combination force for sure also winning by an average of fifty one which isn't too shabby sometimes we look for defining moments. How much was the win over Syracuse one of those Trevor Lawrence's first game he gets her. Chase Bryce makes a big play on fourth down lay Travis at the end was brilliant. That day was was that the start of all this really starting to click. Well, I I think that was definitely one of the big moments along the way, but but we we we start over every year. And it's really, you know, I always tell people if you haven't put the work in January, February March April through the summer, you know, it's too late when you get when you get your game day, and it's it's game for whatever and you down in the fourth quarter, may you're you're all of it matters. And I it started really when we started over in January and this just the development of the leaders on this team so forth. And so there are a lot of moments, but that's definitely one of those defining moments within this season for sure because we had had you know, what potentially could be big distractions and things like that. Obviously kelly. Decided to move on. And that was a lot of emotion involved in that. And 'cause they go man that we we really love and care for. And and so it was and now you you you you made the change. But now your backup is a guy who really hadn't played much and then you get into the game. And you're you're you're tackles out. You're starting corners out. We had another player starter out. And then and then on the whole the quarter and a half in your new starting quarterback goes out. And so it was a it was a very challenging day. But you saw the resolve of our team the love that our team has for each other their fight. And you know, we found a way to win the game. So after that, we just kind of have taken off. So I definitely feel like that was a a big time defining moment within the season when you had made the change to Trevor Lawrence. And you also went to Shawn Watson in the middle of the season. I'm not sure those two are related. But is there a preferred spot to buy that guy time to get ready for when the change is made? And by the same token, also give them enough time to succeed should that team? Go far enough in the season. Yeah. I mean, there's really none of that was a part of it. Just simply based on where we were at the time. I mean, you know, after the first three games, you know, we were we were still kind of in the same spot as far as still go to play both of them. Kelly was still going to be a starter. But after the Georgia Tech game. I mean, it was just it would just where we were at that time. And you know, we just felt like the right thing to do was to start. Trevor Kelly would have continued to play for sure, but you know, things changed on his hand. And we gotta move forward. But ideally, you'd like to have that done before the season in a perfect scenario. You like to kind of know who who your who your starter is if you have a solidified guy before the season, but that's just you have to play the hand you're dealt every year. That's got to where we were. We felt like coming in. It was close to guys deserve the play. And you know, if if it changed it, we would all know it, and we see it on the field and. That's exactly what happened talk with Clemson head coach, Dabo Sweeney and Trevor Lawrence has really done a good job. So far he seems to pick things up very quickly. What is it about him that you like the most or that stands out the most like humility very humble kid? Great work ethic loves to prepare. He processes things very well, very high football IQ. But but I mean, his his poise and then obviously his skill set that he has for the position is is unbelievable. You know, he's six six hundred seventeen towns and and very accurate thrower. Not just not just a guy that has a ton of Lhasa the he's he's an accurate thrower. And really has great command of what we're doing in understanding of defense on defense that defensive line which has been Fabulous So far decides to return to school for one more year and chase that national. Title once again when they make that kind of commitment, how do others fall in line. And and do you feel any pressure to repay them for that that loyalty at all? No. I mean, they came back on their own merit. I mean, they all certainly could have left, but but they made that decision. I mean, all we do our rose to just get them information. And they have to make the decision 'cause they're the one that has to live with it. And so my job is to is to give them the best possible chance to be successful and into to surround them with the same type of commitment from the staff from the support staff from the other players because these guys are unbelievably committed, and you know, I wanna see them leave here with another championship. I would love that. Because they deserve it. They they've worked so hard. And you just want to do everything and can help them have a great final experience. And it's been amazing being windows guys because they've been incredibly focused since they made the decision to come back. They made it for different reasons. But they always say spotted scores what they wanted to achieve within the season spinal year. So it's been exciting. It's hard to believe how fast it's going with winning the game in next week a senior day for us. And and just could not have a better group of guys to to to work with everyday. It's November as you've said before it's a championship. Phase time, you're unbeaten everyone you're facing. Now, this is the equivalent of their bowl game for coach. That was a that is a defending national or has won a national championship. I should say how do you handle that impart that message to your team? Well, it just it just all built together. I mean, you know, this is the biggest game of the year. But but so so with game one and game two in game three. And that's just really what we do in at all builds. I mean, we we stay focused on what we're doing. Our? We have a very consistent preparation playing every week that doesn't vary. It doesn't matter who we play with preparing the same week same way this week as we did all the way back to Georgia Southern in game three or whatever that was. So we treat every opponent with great respect. And we try to pair every week for four quarter game. And we just we we have a high level accountability. We we really try to perform to the standard that we set at each physician winning performance. So just being consistent again with with how we approach things weekend and week out. And, but as you get to this point, you know, they've had their head down in the ground. Any grinding running. And now, you get to a point where you like man, you can kind of look up a little bit and kind of see where you hope to go thing you just put your head right back down. And you go back to work because you only get you get there. One step at a time. You know, you can't win in your twelve until you win. You know, you you don't get to skip ahead. You just got to just stay focused on the task at hand. And what you're doing in the moment talking with Clemson head coach, Dabo Swinney. You're very big on family. So just how special isn't to not only be able to coach your son. But to be able to enjoy the success that you're having together. It's really cool. It really is. You know, especially for me here comes from because you know, my boys in the coaching profession lot of times. You know, you're you're you moving around all over the place, but I've been so blessed. This is my sixteenth year at Clemson, Montana's the head coach. So my boys have grown up here. I mean, they were four three when we moved here. And and my baby clay was born here. And so now, I gotta. Sophomore on the team a freshman on the team at a freshman in high school. So they literally won't up on the sideline here at Clemson. They think will my oldest was was pan when I got the head job. And so it's just amazing because they have just loved every second of it. And they've always been so much a part of of everything they they they know all the players have always known all the players and now to see them as players to see them living their dream and getting a chance to to just grind, man. And be a part of especially this team minutes is such a special group guys. And to know that my sons are are getting impacted by some of these guys on this team. It's it it's great in support staff that we have here. I really thoroughly enjoyed it.

"Host rich Ackerman. Interesting storylines early in week four and one is how easily Notre Dame with a new quarterback today is handling Wake Forest defense. Let's go to Kevin Casey. All right, rich, thirty six seconds to go in the half. And it's twenty eight to thirteen Notre Dame top of the demon deacons. And and it's been the Bush shou or the fighting Irish sixteen to twenty four hundred eighty nine yards passing and a touchdown. And they've been getting a solid rushing attack. Jaffar Armstrong a thirty yard touchdown run in his numbers. Not a bad day. Twenty five yards. A carry to carries fifty yards in the thirty yard touchdown run. Tony jones. Also with the touchdown book. Calling is number with a two yard touchdown. Wake Forest has the ball. They're on the booth. They're looking at it. First and ten from the Notre Dame thirty make it. They're thirty nine yard line. So thirty seconds to go in the half. Its Notre Dame twenty eight four thirteen or another good story in the making is Purdue right now up big on Boston College at the half. Here's Tom McCabe. Well, Purdue and Purdue and Boston College were tied at seven at the end of the first quarter. But since then it's been all Purdue the bar. Lawmakers scoring a pair of touchdowns and a field goal in the second quarter at right now. At the half. They lead twenty three to seven over Boston. College eagles have no offense this afternoon. Just thirty two passing yards and five rushing ours. Toilet thirty seven yards of total offense for Boston College. So far in this game compared to Purdue which has exactly two hundred yards. Total offense quarterback Anthony Brown. Six of eleven for just thirty two yards for BC Purdue passing David blouse thirteen of eighteen for one hundred sixty eight yards. We mentioned that field goal late in the second quarter that came after per you got the ball on an interception at the Boston College six yard line. So it's been all or almost all Purdue this afternoon, they lead at the half twenty three to seven over Boston College. Right. So the Boilermakers looking for their first win in front at the break. Let's go to Mike Reeves, Georgia and Missouri. Mike, we get to the happier at it is Georgia on top of is very score is twenty two seven as we've talked about all day. It's been a story of defense for Georgia and their special teams. Missouri's. Now turned it over three times they were able to escape this last turnover without giving up points, but they have given up ten points off of those three turnovers. Total Missouri has yet to score off of the one in Georgia turnover that happened early in the game the scoring plays in this. One. Georgia hasn't scored at the point yet in terms of scoring a touchdown. They did get a blocked punt from Eric Stokes that he took back eight yards for a score. And they get that full recovery for a touchdown. That was taking sixty eight yards by toxic cable earlier the game Rodriguez blinking ship. The two field goals one to forty four and one of twenty one yards out Missouri's only score came on the second rushing touchdown of the season from Larry Rowntree. It was a seven yard score again, Missouri three turnovers. And then the problem with special teams Georgia total opposite into the first after the BULLDOGS just one hundred forty eight yards. Remember, this the Missouri defense that was scorched by David Blau at Purdue last week for five hundred seventy two yards, so Missouri. Deep into certainly been better today, but their offense has not been able to get it going and Georgia gets to the intermission of this one with lead of twenty two. Seven. All right. Thank you, Mike and right now, Michigan leads the Brassica thirty nine and nothing coming up later on BYU takes on macneice after perhaps one of the best wins that you'll see this year. The Cougars went into camp Randall a week ago and knocked off Wisconsin dropping them to eighteenth in the polls this week and their head coach kalani Pataki had a chance to catch up with him earlier in the week and talk about the huge win in the narrative was that was -sconsin is now likely out of the playoff picture. How did it feel perhaps accomplish that? And just how good can his team be after posting its first road win over a top a top ten teams since nineteen eighty four. Well, so great, you know, all our hard work, and and looking at really just trying to measure ourselves from the difference a year made for us in two thousand seventeen Wisconsin came to our stadium and just mopped us up, and and weigh weighs more physical than we were as a team. And it was a good wakeup call. Call for all of us. And so really wanted to see how much improvement we can make and how much hard work, we can get bigger stronger and and be able to compete against them. And just really I think confirm invalidate everything all the hard work and all the time that our guys put into I'm getting ready for the season. So really good comedy to our players, and the coaches for the preparation, but now that we've got the game on the way. And then see that we're we've made a lot of improvement. The goal now is be consistent and try to do this every week regardless of who the opponent is and really thankful that we admire Wisconsin and what they do as a program. And really wanna I believe we can get to that type of stage if we keep recruiting and developing our players, right way and just really pleased that it worked out it worked out in our favor this past weekend. Quite simply, what do you think was the key to that victory on Saturday? All right guys, just believed in the game believes in each other and trusted each other. And just believe they could win the game. And when really nobody gave them a chance, you know, it it it when you face with some adversity pretty binds the team together and brings us closer together. And so we believe in each other or our coaches had a great game plan. And we went out and executed, and it wasn't great. It wasn't like a perfect game for us. But we saw that there's a lot of things that we could have done better. But it's really motivating knowing that you could you could still play with hard hard, work and effort, and and great preparation still give yourself a chance to win even agree against a great team like.

Sam darnold led the Trojans to revenge in part to only one will emerge victorious in part three of this epic trilogy. It is Texas in USC tonight. Twenty one minutes away at eight PM eastern and streaming live on the Fox Sports app. Alabama has taken a fourteen seven lead over ole miss and also right now Iowa and northern Iowa just getting underway at Kinnock stadium in Iowa City. So the hawk eyes and looking to get to three and as you heard from Kirk farance earlier in this one as the hawk is coming off a big win over Iowa State a week ago. So they're getting underway as well as Missouri. And Purdue in the big ten coming up a little later on this evening. Arizona state looking to get the three and the sun devils coming off their big win a week ago. Take on San Diego State. But looking back at that win with quarterback, many Wilkins junior the fifth year senior, and we talked about the comeback and down ten in the fourth quarter. I asked him when did he believe victory was attainable? When I stepped foot on the field. When when the when when the whistle blew I never had a doubt in my mind that we weren't gonna win that football game. We understood adversity was going to happen. We understood that we're playing a good opponent. And you know, it's going to be easy. But we decided to continue to keep the main thing the main thing and just everybody on the field do their job one at a time. You know, let's take care of itself. You get the ball with just under five minutes to go. And that was at Michigan state never got another chance that was obviously the game plan. But they know what's coming. You know, it's coming executing is another story. How did you guys pull that final drive off? So well. We just say poison the moment, you know, we we knew what coverage they were gonna run they are on third down. And I think that was the the the biggest play probably of that drive to to you know, and the flats we knew they're gonna play man. So we set some pick routes there and dumped it off to him and he got down the sideline. So I think that was just a moment where we put something in on the sideline because something and we executed it and then down there at the end. I think it's just really good coaching of Kach management controlling the game controlling the environment. And ended up not even giving them an opportunity to get the ball. And go score. I don't know how much this went through your thought process or anybody else on the team but going into that game, you know, Michigan state playing in the Pacific time zone. It was a late game for them. As far as body clock is concerned. It was hot how much do you think that you guys were able to benefit from that and boost yourselves late? We definitely. On new about that. We definitely talked about it as a team team meeting just using as much as we can to our advantage because you know, it is an advantage. I it it is an advantage that they are coming in here and we're kicking off at seven forty five. But to them it's almost eleven o'clock used to plan, and you know, seventy five eighty degree weather with little humidity. But this is a dry heat was one on one at the game. So it's it's different it. And when you speak those things to life when you speak those things, and they hear about those things it all becomes mental. So mentally, they can be like man, we're really might be tired out there because it's so hot. And that's when it starts to take long guys is when they start thinking negatively about a situation. So I think we did a good job of understanding the environment around us, and and that's why we practice outside every single day in this heat is because we know we can use it. Advantage talking with Manny Wilkins junior the quarterback for the Arizona state sun devil who are ranked twenty third this week off to a to start under new head coach Carmen Edwards one that you probably knew from his TV days or perhaps his days in the NFL. What was it like when he comes through that door and talks to you for the first time? It was awesome. You know, he had his press conference. And we not, you know, we're not required to go to any or things. But now I got out of bed at seven in the morning to to come back my coach and looking at his eyes. And then let them know that I'm the quarterback of his football team out of a stack because that's just how it was raised. So you know, it was awesome too. To understand where he comes from. It's you know, the experiences in it's just indescribable indescribable. How valuable it is to have situational experience leadership experience because he's been around this game so long it makes the world of a difference because he's seen so much more than I have. So just trying to be expunged. Learn as much as I can that these last few months that I have around him. This is what I'm trying to do. Jeff think given his background when he was hired. This could be the best thing that's ever happened for me. Yeah. I mean every situation. I mean, I got no choice, but to run with it, regardless to make my mind if I was going to. Flouts around about it. Or if I was going to attack in each day and then thinking in front of the boat. So that's what I did. You know each day. I never take a day for granted in this game. And and that's what that's kind of what my mindset has been. 'cause I know how quick this game can be taken away from me. It's one of the great quotes in coaching jargon. It's been a video that's gone viral. Who knows how many times, but obviously the clip of coach Edwards when he was with the jets telling a reporter you play to win the game. How many times has he said or of the guys on the team said that line? I think we joked around about it a couple of times of giving him a hard time about air, and they're just because because we just do that. But but he he really hasn't said we understand. But he really hasn't used that one that that Fraser that quote on us yet. There's a lot of validity to it though. Definitely not the legendary moment there sports history. No question. We're talking with Manny Wilkins, Jimmy. They find Arizona state quarterback. You're on ion college football. This is your last year, and you have been through a lot in five years. How have you grown in your eyes? You know, I think just mentally. I've just grown to be a victim. In a lotta situations. I think that when kids are eighteen years old, and they get to college. It's always a a poor me mindset. It's always, you know, how can I feel sorry for myself? I'm sore tired. And and I understand that. I like I said before that this game is what how much is game has done for me. So I've just learned to to not take a day for granted. And understand that. I'm really blessed to be in the in. Man. There's millions of people means a kids I wished that. They could be an issue that I'm in. So, you know, I always tell myself every morning that I wake up. I gotta do something more than than than the guys that are out there that are in the same. That they're not doing because this world is just about separating yourself and being in the right moment at the right time, and no one the right people. So that's kind of been my mindset, I've matured so much as a young man growing up and adult now, it's it's really been. I've been fortunate to be where I am and have the staff, you know, the academic staff coaching staff and the players that I've been around. I've been very fortunate to be around people that are life changing. And then people that'll be with me for the rest of my life. So I learned a lot of things I've made a lot of mistakes I'll continue to make mistakes. But one thing that I know is when I make mistakes, I learn from them and growth on them. Then that's that's what I'm most by. I know you're going to law school. But for all the things that you just mentioned, how do you plan on using those things that you've learned from or receiving or will receive as a as a platform further on further on down the road in life. Whether it's in the NFL or or beyond. Yeah. I mean. I have bigger bigger and bigger dreams in to the NFL. Obviously it is one of my goals in one of my dreams. And you know, I want to compress that. But at the end of the day, I want to be able to inspire the us. I want to give them a voice. I want them to understand when certain situations happen in your life. There is in a moment where you just say I'm going to give up on life. And I think that's what that's what I've been put on earth to do put here by God is just managed to be a vessel to the younger kids. And and let them know that that I'm here to help. And and and let them use my story as motivation than when I never have been one to. I never really enjoyed that. I let my story be out because I felt like it was a lot of like look at me. And look at my story who I am. And is a lot of beat me. But to see the. The comments that I've gotten the, you know, the text messages that I've gotten from people, I don't know how much my story has inspired them to continue to go. That's why I knew that that I've been put here for a bigger purpose. And it's bigger than me. Well, school has certainly served its purpose for you. Because you have definitely grown immensely over the last couple of years, you have matured greatly. And it's been fun to watch you on the field. And I'm sure you the things that you're doing off the field right now are really contributing great things the community and will continue to do. So thanks so much for a couple of minutes greatly. Appreciate it. Yes, sir. Thank you so much have a good day Mandy Wilkins junior. Find quarterback from Arizona state and a few things stood out about him. Jody the I I just said this off the air. I've known a lot of people who've gone to law school, including my brother, and none of them had ever been happy in their first year of law school and complained about it incessantly. Instead, it was the hardest year they've ever had. They all they add is hard. All they had was work to do. He's going to law school and playing football and doing it. Well. So I think that says something about him and think of all the great quarterbacks there have been in the pack twelve the last couple of years, and he's sort of flown under the radar..
