Postgame Show: The U Is Back

"Killing Butler. Winning a title and then celebrating the life of Kobe. After killing Jimmy, Butler yep that's how Kobe would have done it bake night. That's how Kobe would have done. It it would have been a Kobe you need to kill Jimmy Butler in order to win this game and then Jimmy Butler would indeed be dead. That's what would have happened there. One odd. What do you guys think we should do here. We have gotten a request here are text string. Communication tends to be pretty flimsy. So I'd like to hear your real time opinions on whether or not you WANNA. Do this thing we have been requested as a radio show to do something that will be thrown on a broadcast during Clemson, and Miami on Saturday, which we didn't talk about enough this week because Miami can be in a position here with a game this weekend that would really. Be Fun in terms of all the depression, we felt this week on what felt like the biggest sports week of the year lifts a little bit if Miami can get into the game with Clemson on Saturday night and it doesn't seem that far fetched given what they have at the quarterback position. So we've as because this is a game between top ten teams you know do you have the? Guts on what the affiliation is, what the network is that Mark Richt and they wanNA play a game with us of some sort I. Believe it's the ACC network is that right Mike Yeah the huddle on ABC Network Mark ricks apart of that show. Okay. So Mark Richt, the former Um coach who picked Louisville earlier this season Miami hasn't really played anybody. So this will be interesting to see them tested because they blew out FSU but FSU terrible Uab You saw was a bit of a Labor and Louisville's defense looked so bad even though Miami had a Bunch of big plays. But what is that what is it that the network would like us to do as a show and what is your level of enthusiasm for doing it because I didn't see too many people saying on the texturing that they wanted to be doing. That's just how we do things around here. They WanNa know if the U. is back. So they turn to the biggest sports radio show in the history of the medium to get down to whether or not the you is back but they wanNA, know if the U. is back before the game. And that is a weird way of doing it. Yeah. Because then if they lose, you're probably going to have to walk it back. Yeah. The Way I look at those texts with that specific example is like that. ACC. Then we're reaching out for Chris Cody like I'm bound. I'm a glue guy so like I'll give you the energy if you want but I just felt like that wasn't like they're not saying get Chris cody talking about the case like down to do it but that's why I wasn't like Oh. Yes. Definitely. Because I don't want to speak for the group what it's not I'm not the one that they want. So Chris Gaines bag. Kimmy a quarterback. I don't think we can curse on the. GonNa. Have to take this from the top. Established that it was not just for the post up before we take from. is outraged right now Chris. Sue Getting on a show called the huddle. That's fucking this stuff. Right there it is. Mark. Richt probably doesn't love a lot of cursing. He's a soulful religious man. So let's do this. PODCAST hold on a second just back off I still, WanNa. Know what billy and Tony feel about the doing of this like do we want do away Roy already answer Roy? Roy said, yes I'd like to do it. Okay Billy. So you're you tony are the last two votes on this? Do you want to do a segment for a show called the? Yes sure I mean similar Chris I mean the huddle doesn't care what I think about this and I wasn't really sure what it was. Kinda like. But I know but this is what I'm gonNA. DO WE'RE GONNA? We're, GONNA, televise all of it. Right correct. We're going to televise Eh being that they asked for ninety seconds to three minutes and Chris Cody already said I think We do no doubt that was going to. Do it right now is what I'm saying this would be the post game and let's do it right now let's do the segment live right now the one that they will either use or not use on the huddle right ninety seconds to three minutes guys got to be efficient. You'RE GONNA, ask assembly. Lead and what I'm going to do. Here So, we're GONNA do. This is what we're going to stop right now. Let's stop. We're GONNA stop for a second, and this is going to be the segment right here that we give Mark Richt in the huddle this seguin alright. How Huddle, how silence a couple of seconds of silence and then we'll do the segment a little huddle up are a little but you guys say they don't. WanNa. Hear from the shipping containers.

Georgia vs Florida - The Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party | 1

"<music> it's October twenty seventh two two thousand seven Mark Richt Georgia football's head coach strolls across the turf of Municipal Stadium in Jacksonville Florida in just thirty minutes his bulldogs kickoff against the Florida gators and for once Richt is brimming with confidence. Both teams are now five and two so neither is really a national championship unshipped contention but for Richt this is still the most important game he's ever coached. It's chillier than usual today. In Jacksonville the city. That's hosted pretty much catch every Florida Georgia game since the Nineteen Thirties Jacksonville is supposed to be a neutral game site but it doesn't feel that way to Richt it's it's in Florida for crying out loud and a game called. The gator bowl is played here. How could it be neutral? Rick thinks as he looks up at a sea of Orange Orange and blue gator fans the gators brought the bulldogs to heal in five of their last six matchups. It's given Florida a huge mental edge and made the buttoned-up buttoned-up Georgia coach desperate enough to do something crazy at least for him something with swagger. Maybe a little arrogance something to get some fire in squads belly even if it pisses off some football purists something in other words very unmarked Rick Lake in seven seasons is at Georgia Richt has built a reputation as a man of faith. WHO's quiet decency stands out in the cutthroat world of college football for him? It's at simple you win with integrity you lose with integrity. It's the Georgia way that's what makes this right now. The most off the wall moment of Mark ricks entire career as kickoff approaches rick makes his way back to the cramped locker room stands before his players and reminds them of his plan to snap their losing streak he tells them if you don't get a celebration penalty after our first score you'll all be doing early morning. Runs welcome to Jacksonville Hill and the seventy fifth encounter at this site between these two better rivals however you need to to compete if you're going to have a real rivalry and Georgia has lost as we said fifteen at the last seventeen almost nine minutes into a scoreless game with Georgia facing third and goal at the Florida one yard line star running back no now Sean Marino takes a hand off and jumps over the pile of linemen in front of him Marino up attack Georgia touchdown and here comes the entire team watch. Is this for excessive celebration. We may have fifteen Hanky Jamir on this. I can't believe this plane. This was absolutely plan. Rick decided that he got to try to fight his team up. He's tired of having the psychological advantage. He's willing to give up the penalty. Nearly every Georgia player on the sideline rushes the field penalty flags fly in every direction the C._B._S.. Cameras Swing to the other other sideline anticipating a reaction from the gators. Tim Tebow Florida's phenomenally talented Sophomore quarterback looks confused Sodas Otas tvos coach Urban Meyer Meyer is frantically waving his Florida players off the field to avoid pointless penalties. Meanwhile rick takes it all in <unk> happily and knows his plan worked. The gators are rattled as the second half unfolds. Georgia's still doesn't give away its leave their staffer. The Marino Georgia touched the bulldogs match every Tibo touchdown with one of their own and win the game forty two to the thirty for the first time in years. The Florida Georgia game lives up to the hype. A rivalry. That's been uneven in the last decade is incredible once again. Georgia's full team touchdown celebration quickly gets a nickname in the media. The gator STOMP RICHT is thrilled but he's created an unexpected new problem while he made the rivalry competitive again he also just encouraged urban Meyer Tim Tibo and the entire Florida Lord a team to spend the next three hundred sixty four days plotting their revenge sports wars is brought to you in part by lifeproof makers of Action Ready Phone cases designed to let you live fulltime.

That's a cliche but it's true especially in college football. The college game has the shortest season in sports. It has generational hatred rabid regional loyalties and fanatical alums so certain games matter more than others. These are the games that make or break legacies the games aims that give middling coaches a shot at glory and otherwise great coaches a shot at humiliation. These are the rivalry games. What is it though that elevates some of these rivalries to legendary status often the schools that hate each other the most might actually have a lot in common but that's what makes college football rivalries so irrationally passionate for the first three episodes of the season? We're diving into a rivalry. That's long simmering star studded and completely completely unruly Florida verse Georgia. This is episode one the world's largest outdoor cocktail party two hundred and fifty mile border divides Georgia and the deep south from the odd and colorful melting pot that is Florida. The University of Georgia is the oldest state chartered university in the country and it's located in the charming town of Athens name to emulate Plato's Academy and the University of Florida well. It's in Gainesville a small city known more for its trees than it skyscrapers when the campus was founded in one thousand nine hundred six six they actually had to close its gates at night so cows wouldn't wonder at Georgia near the arch the university's historic landmark that represents wisdom justice and moderation. There's a good chance you'll see students. Sporting a colored red and black Georgia shirt tucked into a neat pair of Press Khakis at Florida near the potato. The campuses oddly shaped thirty thousand year old ten ton rock. You're more likely to see students in a tank top and a pair of shorts. At least that's the stereotype. The dichotomy even extends to music Athens produce the conic ult- rock band R._E._M.. FAVORITE OF RECORD STORE SNOBS UH and Gainesville is straight rock and roll the home of Tom Petty who grew up in what he once called the redneck hillbilly part of town and built his career playing shows for college college kids who just wanted to rock out while drink and cheap beer the football rivalry between the two schools begins in one thousand nine hundred four or maybe it doesn't maybe it begins is in one thousand nine hundred fifteen. That's one measure of just how weirdly feisty this rivalry is. The two schools involved can't even agree on when it started Georgia says it was in one thousand nine hundred four when the two schools played their first game and Georgia one fifty two to nothing but Florida fans believed the rivalries true start date was nineteen fifteen since it's Florida's campus hadn't yet moved to it's permanent Gainesville home in nineteen. Oh four Georgia still won the nineteen fifteen game by the way one thing is up for debate. Georgia dominated nominated those early matchups winning by a combined score of two hundred forty two two nine and then you could probably make the argument that neither of these dates are correct that the Florida Georgia matchup reached the level of bitter feud on November Tenth Nineteen Twenty eight that day more than half of Florida's student body makes the trip to Georgia sometime in the final minutes with the gators up twenty six two six and exuberant Florida Fan with a gun fires off a blank thinking that was just a sign that the game's over Florida fans stormed the field and tear down the goalposts and celebration Georgia fans then rushed the field to fists fly a huge brawl whole breaks out the final few minutes of the game play out with a background of random fistfights that police can't seem to fully stop several this crash rash violently into several faces rights one local reporter in that moment a rivalry is born but a game like this doesn't belong in Genteel thiel Georgia it needs a permanent home in town happy to host a party and five years later. It'll find one. It's November fourth nineteen thirty three the country is in the midst of the Great Depression. Americans and more specifically southerners need a distraction and in Florida versus Georgia football provides it in their first season since joining the newly formed southeastern conference or the S._E._C. Florida and Georgia decided to move their match up to a neutral location Jacksonville Florida first majors that you've come upon driving south along the East Coast is Jacksonville Gateway Way to Florida and its principal part. It's a growing city on the northeast coast with a gleaming new stadium that houses seventy six hundred people. It's huge huge to be fair. It's not entirely a halfway point between the two schools. It's only an hour's drive from Florida's campus and a half day trip from Georgia's us for now though it doesn't matter even with the struggles brought on by the depression dog fans are willing to make the trip probably because they know they're paying to watch their our team win and sure enough that day in Nineteen thirty three Georgia trances Florida fourteen nothing the bulldogs keep winning during these early years in Jacksonville taking thirteen of the first fifteen contests by the nineteen forties. The stadium has doubled in size. It'll keep growing and packing in the crazies over the years. The stadium is also renamed the gator bowl but the name is about where Florida's advantages begin and end during this early stretch stretch it still all Georgia early on yet. The game itself almost doesn't matter by the time the nineteen fifties come around. This game is only part of the full Volvo Wild Florida Georgia experience. It's now the biggest party of the season. It's November Eighth Nineteen Fifty Eight and Bilkis tells the Sports Editor of the Florida Times Union is wandering through the masses outside the gator bowl. He's in search of a story. The good news is Has Gotten more competitive over the course of the decade Florida's been winning more and more thanks in part to their new head coach a Georgia native. That's right Georgia native named I'm Bob Woodruff. The bad news in nineteen fifty eight is that this year's game is a total done. Woodruff's gators have already lost three games. This year in Georgia has already lost four simply put this year's game is a trash pile so the sports editor figures the story must be out here among the crowds of tailgaters living their best lives one drink at a time the gator Bowl stadium now holds more than forty thousand people nearly six times its original capacity acidy as the game has grown so too has the intensity of the pre kickoff gathering outside fans now have their calendars marked for the game typically the last Saturday in October the first Saturday in November they start showing up earlier than ever days and days even and leaving later than ever. How do I describe this castells wonders? It doesn't really have the intensity of a brawl. It's more like a huge never ending social event. All these people all that that booze people don't come here to watch the game so much as root for anything wearing their colors as he wanders through the parking lot he sees a fan approach a a police officer in uniform and this fan is feeling booed. He's in that special drunken head space where irrationality seem chivalrous chivalrous and he's trying to do the gentlemanly thing offer the COPPA drink. That's what this is. The sports editor thinks it's the world's largest outdoor door cocktail party he heads back up to the press box punches the keys on his typewriter and makes history for the next three decades or longer. If you're some people people this will be the official name of the Florida Georgia rivalry a decade later during the heart of the sixties. The party is still going strong on the field. The level of play is catching up to how fun the parking lots can be. The bulldogs have a coach that perfectly represents their blue blood history ambitions editions and the Gators have found what they've been looking for for decades a quarterback with the talent and the will to put an end to Georgia's dominance. It's in Marvel Studios avengers endgame. The remaining avengers must overcome the aftermath of destruction and face their biggest challenge yet finding the resolve within themselves to defeat Thanos once and for all the world's greatest heroes will finally understand just how fragile a reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it in a story of friendship teamwork and setting aside differences France's to overcome an impossible obstacle get avengers endgame on digital now and Blu Ray August thirteenth new on four K Ultra H._d..

It's the first Saturday in November nineteen sixty four Florida's nineteen year old sophomore quarterback back Steve spurrier sits on a stool in the locker room and pulls his number Eleven Jersey over his shoulder pads. He can feel the earth moving under his feet as nearly nearly fifty thousand fans many of them well lubricated from the parking lot cocktail party wedged themselves into the gator bowl for this year's matching for once once spurrier's gators are favored to win and he knows that's largely because of him already the consensus among writers and fans is that sprayer is on on his way to becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks in school history and he can't help but agree spurrier jogs onto the field for pregame warmups. He's from a small town in Tennessee where his dad instilled an insane competitive streak and that attitude is a perfect fit for Florida spurrier could've if play anywhere he was the quarterback prospect every school in the south coveted he can throw Ron. He can even kick as he stops at the forty yard line for a pre-game stretches he glances across the field at the man whose sole mission is to stop him from winning today thirty two year old Vince Dooley Georgia's rookie key head coach doesn't know much about him. Not many people do the reporters have painted him as an intellectual guy who smokes a pipe and just finished his masters master's degree in history last year he wonders how a guy who probably knows more about the history of reconstruction than he does about pass defense. It's is going to stop them. On the football field as spurrier warms up he feels more certain about his decision to attend Florida than ever Florida's head coach Ray graves the promise spurrier and opportunity to play right away and he followed through on that promise he impress barrier by shooting M._R. which means you'll get a chance to compete for the job. As soon as you're eligible it also helped that's spurrier. I visited Gainesville on a seventy degree winter day. Forty degrees warmer than it was back home on that trip. One of his future teammates took him out for a round on the university golf course and spurrier fell in love on the spot midway through his visit. Though spurrier started feeling terrible eventually getting diagnosed with mononucleosis his future head coach graves stayed with him the campus infirmary this sold him completely on graves and on Florida now a couple of years later here he is anxiously pacing on the sidelines headlines in his first year of eligibility for the Varsity team getting ready to play crucial snaps at quarterback against Georgia Midway through the season. He's already on the verge. Urge of Greatness University of Florida where Cooper Steve as the newspaper boys finally called him crowd to their feet preseason <music> game after the fire with dead I passing and through what just a couple weeks ago in spurrier's very first game on the Varsity squad graves as instructed a nervous spurrier to call his own play so spurrier dialed up a screen pass that led to a touchdown a few weeks later spurrier played brilliantly only in a narrow loss to Alabama and now with the gators and dogs tied at seven in the fourth quarter spurs on the sideline holding his helmet ready to run on the feel for Florida's offensive possession but to his surprise graves reinsert Florida's senior quarterback to try and finish this game off spurrier is surprised and maybe a little bit annoyed even if he won't say so he's struggled today sharp but p preferred to finish this game himself and he loved up to bury Georgia's rookie head coach in the process. Vince Dooley is pacing on the opposite side line. His mouth is dry. He doesn't need a history lesson to know. Just how important winning this Florida Georgia game would mean to his job security back when he and his wife were moving into their new Athens Georgia home he joked. You know what why don't we leave. Some of those boxes packed. We might be on the next train to who knows where before we know it. He rather that train ride didn't come today so this potential defensive stop matters in a tie game against the gators he of course knows his team is less talented. They haven't even completed a pass today but duly does have wits. I'll bet I'm smarter than most other coaches doing things and if I work hard and work smart I can figure out how to build something here duly glances over at the Florida sideline. What's their coach doing leaving spurrier off the field late in the fourth quarter Chirp. It hasn't been his best game but he's one of the best young players players in the country duly. Maybe this is his chance to pull out a W against Florida after Georgia has lost eight of nine with the game still title seven duly watches a spurrier's replacement botches a hand off and fumbles the ball away now. Georgia has the ball back deep in Florida territory territory the bulldogs drive but hit a wall at the Florida five yard line even so a field goal will put the dogs ahead. It's a very makeable chip shot so soak duly sends in his kicker Bobby Etter to attempt the field goal. The ball is snapped but the holder drops it instinctively editor a one hundred fifty pound kicker occur who has never run with the football plows into the corner of the end zone for the game winning touchdown as it turns out. It's a trick play that duly practiced with his team for this exact moment and that win turns duly into an immediate legend not only will he make it through that season with Georgia. He'll make get through twenty four more as much as that wind stays with duly the loss also sticks with spurrier spurrier knows he'll get more chances but losing at the Gator Bowl as a Florida quarterback will haunt spurrier for decades. This is the first time he's come up short against Georgia and if there's one thing that Steve Spurrier hasn't and we'll never master. It's how to let go of a grudge in our next episode head ball coach. Steve Spurrier goes from quarterback to head coach and brings a new wildfire fire to this Georgia dominated rivalry.

Hour 1: 5/7/19

"The Paul finebaum show podcast is brought to you by capital. One capital. One is reimagining banking offering account with no fees or minimums that can be opened in five minutes capital. One. What's in your wallet capital? One NA member FDIC. Cried, passion and pageantry of college football lives. Here is the Paul finebaum show. Our one podcast talking about serving the pot. Welcome to the program. We have a big pot today. We say Hello to you. Hope you're having a good Tuesday. In man, we have a lot to talk about just when you thought it was safe to talk about the Florida Georgia rivalry here comes a voice from the past who has made declarations before. Yes. That guy. Mike bianchi. Used to be. A prominent sportswriter until there were no such thing as prominent sports writers. Now, he's a blogger and a talk show. Host sounds familiar in under the heading Gators or right, fourteen thousand days make makes Georgia the most overrated program in college football who would have ever thought. Mike Bianchi would make an outrageous statement throwing gasoline all over the BULLDOGS fire, and who would have thought the finebaum show inviting Mike Bianchi to join us at the beginning of the program. Mike, it is so good to say Hello to you. How are you? My man, I'm doing great ball. And I am still a sports columnist. Just like in my mind. You're still a great sports. Comments for the Birmingham post herald, Paul. I get up every morning and write my column, Mike, I just don't send it any longer. But you do and I tell you what. In my wildest dreams. I used to think sit around and think about Collins like yours today. So take it from the top. I think I think most of the audience knows the preamble to this. But why why do you believe Georgia is so overrated? I've always thought that actually not always. But for the last I don't know ten years or so because I just think Georgia, and it's fan base had this opinion of itself like their Alabama. And they're not I mean, you look at Georgia's history and in it really hit home last week. When the gator fans were trolling Georgia on social media with the fourteen k day, and it's been fourteen thousand days since Georgia's won a national title. And it's it's true. It's been fourteen thousand days, and that Nash that one single national title that Georgia one in nineteen eighty was by all accounts of fluke when you think about it. I'm at they they had the one fluky play against Florida. The Lindsey one of the great plays in college football history mind, you, but it was a fluke a ninety three yard touchdown pass with like a minute left. And so so they win that game. They were lucky enough that Herschel. Walker? Maybe the greatest player in college football history grew up right down the road from their campus, and they able to recruit Herschel Walker, and and you know, and then they had the Lindsay Scott play. And then you look at some of the other games they won in that nineteen eighty season. I'm they it's not like Georgia was a dominant team when they won their their only national title. I'm didn't they beat your Tennessee volunteers about like a point in the first game Michelson waiver good troll job here. But let's. You know, Florida won a couple with some some homegrown talent. Tim tebow had gator on his Mel box. So I mean, I I don't remember anyone saying well that was sure lucky of urban Meyer that he got a legacy player barely got him. By the way, over Alabama mean, Danny Werfel come on. I mean, I how can you make that point? When when one Georgia Georgia was to raise for three straight years in eighty one and eighty two. Three national titles. Five teams in the SEC have won national title since the last time Georgia won a national title again. Again, I'm not saying Georgia's not a good program. I just don't think Georgia is the elite program that guy. Make it out to be. I mean, and I realize you're not coming from a Florida standpoint. Here you're coming from an independent, I think independence day, but. Florida hasn't won an SEC championships into eight nobody's laughing at them. Georgia has one. Nineteen eighty Paul majority of wanted championship in two years ago. They nearly one one last year. I mean, this is a program that it's not like the end of the run for Kirby smart. It's only the beginning. Wrote a McCollum Kirby smart appears like he could be the steam Spurrier, Georgia. He could be the guy that takes his alma mater and puts it on the national map and wins SEC championships regularly and win in you know, maybe once a national championship. But he's not there yet. He's only what is this year for he'll be going into. And he's had a great last two years. But let's see what happens. But again, you cannot deny that for a program of of Georgia's purported stature to be the to go since nineteen eighty without winning a national championship Paul in nineteen eighty you had so much hair. You could have been the lead singer of whitesnake. All right. That's how much hair you had. I was I was rocking the hair back. Then as you know. Okay. So so Mike Lynch, forget the football stuff. Okay. I watch. I wanted to hear more about the fan culture because you seem to really be teeing off on the mindset of the Georgia fan base. No, I'm really not. Through saying they think there's something. I mean who is your thinks there's something. What really the the fans? Thinking about that was and again, it's it's probably turned out to be the right move. But they you know, they fire Mark richt. All right. They fire more Rick. I think he had back to back ten win seasons. Probably thinks I mean the guys out of coaching right now. He's an ACC network analyst. Yeah. But it's not like it's not like, Mark. Rick was a bad coach at Georgia. I think he didn't have the highest winning percentage in Georgia history when they fight him or at least the second highest winning percentage in Georgia history. And he was coming up back to back ten win seasons. And let's not forget Margaret when he was at George if they would've had 'cause you're you're you're suggesting Mark richt to be on college. Football's mount Rushmore is that what I'm hearing here. No, I'm just saying if they would have had a college football playoff when Mark richt was the coach at Georgia. I believe if you look back like early in his career he would have been in the J chip game. I don't might even want a national championship early in his career, Georgia. So so let's not make it out like Mark richt. And that's that's what sort of irked me like who is Georgia to be firing Mark richt when he's he's been a really good coach for them. And that's when I thought to myself, Georgia has to have an opinion. Now, Mike come on. You you live in Florida. You go to the Georgia Florida game. You know, Mark richt was fired his last game against Florida. It was an embarrassment. He got rolled in in the program was moving in the wrong direction. And I think Greg mcgarity made a gutsy decision. He didn't wait. But it's pretty Gordon. But you asked me why you asked me what what is understand this column? That's all. You'll you asked me what the Genesis of why I think Georgia's fan base thinks that they're the elite program in the Mark Rick firing was the Genesis of that up. And again, I'm not saying it's not gonna turn out to be the right move. But that was the Genesis of my thinking of why think Georgia fans have too high opinion of their program. Listen, I I respect columnists come on. I grew up doing. I know what you've done is was successful. Because we're sitting you're talking about it. So I'm I'm just trying to ferret out some information here. Georgia's in elite program. Yes, I do. Okay. I'm not talking about right this moment. Well, so what are you asking me? You said do you think Georgia's leap program? I said yes when and now so now, you're qualified. I mean now I mean like over the last one hundred rarely historically. Georgia's not an elite program, historically. Okay. All right. That's all I'm saying. I don't remember. When calling in saying, we aren't elite program is store. What they're saying is we've got an incredible program right now we. Nearly Alabama the national champions. Digit lead last year. I mean, we we are the the kings right now of the SEC east. Yes, they are. And and and and they're waiting for Alabama. They're not thinking about Florida right near think about Alabama. Well, they better be taking about Florida because they they need to enjoy the superiority they have in the SEC east because Dan Mullen is gonna quickly turn the tables on that rivalry. I I I'm almost certain of that. Let's talk more about that. Now that we've changed said to keep going. You look at what Dan Mullen has done in one year. All right. He took over a program that was more than it was in the it was a dumpster fire. They won four when he took over program that was so much worse off than the program. Kirby. Smart took over at Georgia. It's not even comparable any tons that program around in one year, ten wins change, the whole changes, the whole mindset of the fan base changes. The whole mindset of the program actually puts an offense on the field. That's respectable for the first time in a decade. Takes the quarterback that gator fans, and and most college football experts had had sort of given up on him, Philippi. Frank. And by the end of the season Philippe by Franks is playing lights out. They blow out Michigan in a bowl game. They, and that's what Dan Mullen has done in one year and the one knock against Dan Mullen, when he took over the Gators job as oh this guy can't. Prut? He can't recruit he's not a good recruiter. Well, the reason he wasn't a good recruiter is because he was at Mississippi State in one year, look at recruits look at next year's recruiting rankings ball, look at the the, you know, these, you know, twenty four seven sports ESPN dot com. Look at their projected rankings and commitments for next year. The Gators our top five or six I believe they're even head of Georgia. If I'm not mistaken right now and Mullen had topped in top ten recruiting classes past season when Dan Mullen gets the talent. And they're that he's never had Mississippi State. He's going to make Florida and absolute powerhouse again. Great stuff might be Ocoee. You can read his column on on Georgia. And where they believe were. They should they Mike he'll come back soon. This was fun. Always enjoys. It's up hy-vee Ocoee, dropping some Napon here on the Georgia nation. We will take a break. Get your reaction to all of that. The show has just begun. You were listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Great heavy back. Let's get some reaction from you. And you can get a day five to four two. You can get in here at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. Mike starts us off in Georgia. Mike. Thank you. Good afternoon today. Paul will be he did a good job of getting me riled. I get the article. But the main the one of the main things above me about what he said was talking about that play to Lindsay, Scott and calling it a fluke play. Now. It'd be like me saying that to past when they beat Georgia and the national championship was a fluke play. I mean, it was an improbable play. But it was a great play and the play the Lindsay Scott was a great play. And he talks like he frames it like Georgia was very week that year, and we didn't have a championship quality team. Well, we didn't lose an SEC game in nineteen eighty eighty one or eighty two. So I mean, the guys just I mean these just arguing from point of. I think it stood of he thinks the Georgia fans believed their elite. I think he's scared at Georgia is becoming a leap, and I think that's where the real fear is that. Yeah. Listen, I think he showed his school colors a little bit at the end by by the propping up of Dan Mullen, and the the warning to Georgia that your window is pretty narrow the Dan Mullen is coming after you, listen I and he's quoting twenty four seven rankings, which do not mean anything right now. And right. And if you look at it, and you know, this Florida Georgia. Recruiting does not compare right now. I mean, Georgia is way way ahead of Florida. Absolutely. You know, an offer. I mean, I agree. The gators. They went ten games last year great season. But they also lost to Kentucky for the first time since the world began. They also got thrashed by Missouri. And so I mean, you know, they got beat by Georgia. So I mean, I don't know. I just think he's a he's a little bit over e-e-e-e-no rating where the Gators on where they stand great to hear from you. Thank you, very very much. Let's go to our next in Georgia. Good afternoon. High Paul thanks for taking the call. Thank you, Mr. Bianchi needs to look in the mirror talking about Georgia fans thinking they're more than they are Florida fans. You know, that's like the puck calling the kettle black really because there is on noxious as anybody as far as the recruiting rankings that he said at this time last year Georgia was in thirty. I think so this one lady. One who understands anything about recruiting don't. I mean, listen, you're you're seeing some trend lines right now. But you're not qualifying how many scholarships each school has to give and you, and I both know this will change dramatically between now and late December. Yeah. It will in the in a fully believe the Kirby will be fine. You know in that area. He's proven that. While he was Alabama in now. So I'm not worried about recruiting rankings in may. And I don't think he is either. I could almost guarantee you that I will see Kirby tomorrow and will interview him, and I can willing to bet he's he's not concerned at all do gene is up next in Duluth, Georgia. Hello Eugene high profile how you doing man we right program. Thank you, very much really always was Joey program, and I just tnd in few minutes ago. I think the timing was pretty good because I came in on the tail end of this Bianchi, fellas his ramblings, I think he's coming in from some other planet or something. He doesn't seem to be engaged in prison. When he started talking about, you know, the Lizzy Scott miracle play that we all hold their all of our BULLDOGS are harse felt myself pet sticks his cross so badly, and he can't get over it. Sure. It's wonderful play. But let pow we you. We remember that it's nineteen eighty and we haven't had national championship since then we're going to change those things, but he needs to realize that he we understand he needs to send these papers. But he's he's just not really with the present times right now. He's he's wishful thinking, I think it's the best way to look at it Paul, listen, I I've been there in in in in my newspaper career where you write something so inflammatory that, you know, it's going, oh, you hope it's going to get a reaction. He got a reaction and. I would I would have preferred him being more objective. There were certain things he could have dealt with what when he went in at the end, and and gave the lie about Dan Mullins coming for you. And I mean, that's when he started to show where he lives and to me, the Mark of a great opinion writer or broadcaster is is not to give away. Everything not not to come off partisan to give give strong opinion, but having based in something, and I think, you know, cheap shotting Georgia for. Winning in one thousand nine hundred eighty I mean, it's not like this program hasn't done a great deal. It was back in the national championship game a year and a half ago. In nearly got their last year probably should have gotten to the final four. This is a this is a this is one of the top three programs in America right now. And he's going Gaga over Florida, which is in better shape than it was a year ago. But it's still a Dan Mullen still at best third choice of the administration there if they thought so much Dan Mullen, Scott stricklin thought so much of him. Why didn't he offered him the job? I considering they worked together for about eight years at Mississippi State. You just send it up so beautifully. I really can't prove on that. But I certainly do appreciate your perspective. And I thank you very much. So I'll leave it to the next foul. Thank you. I get what's going on down there. And I I know it said this times, but just for context spending a couple of day a couple I was I was in Gainesville all day a few weeks ago. And I heard this all day long from mill Mullen on down. I mean, I sat in Mullins office in saw the three championship trophies. And I heard the name Georgia mentioned a couple of times. That's what they're that's their amunition right now because they don't have the football field. They don't have the football team to put on the field that will compete with George at the moment. Will they in the future? You would think so, but I've heard promises from Florida coaches before I heard it from mush champ. I heard it from mcelwain. Got to win the game. You got to win the titles right now. They haven't done it yet yet. We'll be right back much more to come as we continue on a busy busy Tuesday afternoon. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We've been hearing the rhetoric coming from the sunshine state now what about the dogs Seth Emerson has covered Georgia for quite a while. Seth thank you, very very much. I hope you haven't been listening to the show because that means you are subjected to Mike Bianchi, good afternoon. I hope I will. Oh, how do I how do I answer comment on that one? I think I'll leave that alone. Paul. What would I do want to know is the comparisons between Kirby, smart and Mark richt? And and what do they really mean? Yeah. You know this. I think started to occur to people late last season. And then it especially came out after Georgia lost a Texas as kind of this counter to the narrative of Kirby smart building. This powerhouse national championship is is inevitable. Where people rightly pointed out hold on the first three years of Mark richt. And Kirby smart are like eerily similar like down to the records. They won eight in the first year thirteen in the second year eleven in the third year, both of them main differences Kirby was that close to winning national championship the counter to that is that Kirby's or Mark richt did not have any fourteen playoff his second year. So who knows if he gets in there that year? So I built into that. I said all right. These teams were very similar the first three years where are they comparatively? In year four. There was also a lot of into for Mark Rix fourth year at George. I know I was around for that. But you talk to people in just kind of comparing with my own eyes in my own field. But I did talk to David Pollock one of your colleagues there at SEC network in ESPN. I talked Lawrence Smith longtime UGA historian, and there's just a sense that they are a bunch of things that are different now. And that while there I three years kinda throws up the cautionary note about Kirby smart that they are a lot of things in place right now. A lot of them do things that curb smarts doing that make people think this will really be different. It is he is going to be able to do Mark richt. Couldn't quite do. Shit. It'd be before we get to deep. Can we clear something up because Bianchi Fain shock when talking about Mark Ricks dismissal Georgia, but it wasn't surprising. He he had run run. His course, and it was a tough decision. I don't think it was easy. Having won nine games. People always talk about ten win season. But he was fired believe after the ninth win, right? And what went into that decision? I mean, it wasn't a close. Call. I don't think it was if you go back to that two thousand fifteen season the decision was made for sure after they lost a Florida. If you remember they won their last four games to go to nine and three and people were wondering after they beat Georgia Tech to finish nine and three one four in a row as Margaret saved his job. He would quickly like go the next morning. So it was obvious that the powerbrokers kinda made the decision after the Florida game. And then in the lead up to that they that terrible month of October in two thousand fifteen started with that loss to Alabama where both teams run beaten or actually may have had one loss that point. I'm not sure. But there was a sense that Georgia had Alabama home Georgia this year, and then Alabama came in here and waxed them and that started at the floor game kind of finished it. Yeah there. There was a sense that things had just run. Its course that. I think the other thing was curvy smart was very much in the mix for the South Carolina job after Steve Spurrier stepped down and a lot of people around here did not want to let their guy Kirby. Smart George born and bred get away. And that if he got the top Carolina job you'd never be able to get to leave there. And I think that was a driving force to I believe you are correct. I think ala Bama had lost ole miss at home before that game. And and that was the famous game that for the first time, I think since two thousand and nine Alabama was a one or two point underdog. And we it was just a disaster from our correct? And even though you're you said would you did about the Florida game? It was sloppy rainy messy day in Athens that may have finished Mark richt off. Yeah. It it. You know, he could've come back from that. You could have if you come back Tennessee the next week, which they were winning twenty one three. Then couldn't hold on. If you come back and have a good season. Maybe at ten and to remain eleven in one you can come back to that and say that was just a bad day, but the whole month of October did it there was a sense that I mean, man, I I'm not sure Paul how much you want to go down this radical books could be written about that two thousand fifteen season. Somebody may be writing it. I'm gonna go. Well, yeah. But yeah, there was stuff going on with Jeremy Pruitt straight. There was just a sense that Brian Schottenheimer was a complete wrong higher for Georgia on offense. I I'll I'll say this somebody who doesn't get enough attention. I think nationally, and maybe even locally for how important it was to that Georgia program under Margaret was Mike, Mike Bobo, and we'll friends now with recruited Tennessee were left after the two thousand fourteen season and Mike Bobo who helped bring in Jeremy Pruitt to Georgia in the first place did so much for that program in terms of. Not just being the offense coordinator, but just being a guy behind the seeds and a strong recruiter, and you know, maybe a buffer between Pruitt and some people because Bo and been around there, and he had just just had that great personality that that worked to to fix things. And and I think when he and Wilfred left out of the two thousand fourteen season, it kind of started the slide. Let me get your thoughts being on the ground there about all this fire going between Gainesville and at least coming from Gainesville. I don't know how much of it's going back from from Athens. But. How is it being received Kirby smart, really care a whole lot? And and short of winning the national championship will will there be anything. The Georgia can do to shut people up. You know, I yeah. People were talking about it. Because there isn't too much else to talk about right now. Spring practice ended a couple of weeks ago. You've got a while until something else happens. I mean, something like this always crops up every late spring early summer. I'll be curious actually talk to Dan Mullen and Kirby smart invested in a few weeks to to see what their relationship is. Like, there's this assumption that it's very icy which it may be, but I remember that when Kirby smart, I took on Dan Mullen, things Kirby's second year when Mississippi State came in here, they talked a lot about how friend they were. You know, they both have houses on lake at Coney and their families get together and everything has the relationships. Our because of all this this just, you know, a bunch of fire being thrown out by Dan Mullen to to up the Florida fan base. And you know, I if I were Dan Mullen, if I were Florida. And I wanted to needle Georgia. I guess this is what I would do is do the, you know, it's been this long since Georgia won a national championship. Because what else is there? I mean, the success on the field for Florida one one last year that that's the thing that I don't understand. I mean, they haven't won one and thirteen an eleven years. And I mean, I realize Dan, and I guess Dan Mullen was part of all that. So maybe it's his birthright, but it just seems so in the past and that why I that's why saying if you have to pick something if you're a Florida person, I guess, that's what you pick. Because you you can't talk about what's happening on the field. The last three years. You can't talk about what your coaches done against Carpi smart because he's ready to be smart is not very good dating back to Alabama Mississippi State days talking about recruiting. But you gotta if you gotta talk about something if you want to talk about something and do that. There's the argument which is we don't talk about anything until you've actually got something else to talk about. They want to talk about the national championship. That's that's fine. It's just something. I think Georgia people understand that they're going to have to deal with that until they do it. I mean, Georgia Tech fans bringing it up, and you know, Georgia is it such a higher level than Georgia Tech and football right now. But Georgia Tech can still point to they're really code national championship in nineteen ninety that they shared Colorado, but they can still say, well, we've won prior to you know, the last time or since the last time Georgia has one one. And is this something Georgia has to deal with it was my why Mark Rick was fired to get back to what we've talked about at the start here. Margaret cat great record here. He he did wonderful things. He did things better than his record his fifteen years. Here was better than the fifteen years that preceded him since it wasn't even close. But they felt they had stagnated. They felt the not won a national championship. And. And that they needed to move on to get to the next level. And that's what Georgia s buyers to great Steph. Seth many thanks see you soon and consul Seth Emerson he mentioned Destin when all of these folks will be together at three weeks from now. We'll be down there as well. But a lot to do before. Then we'll take a short break. Your phone calls on the the other side of our break here, and we are coming right back. Eight five five two four to seventy eight five is our number two listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. Phone numbers are available and we're giving out prizes. If you can get in with big call, actually, we're not. But Jason up next go right ahead. Jas? All. How much me and my dad love your show. And the always watch it when I get back home from school. Jason what what what grade are you in? I'm in fourth grade, and you live in Tennessee. Your actual Tennessee. Oh well. Well, listen. That's great. We really appreciate you sharing that with us. How much I can't wait until season opens up, and I want to see Tennessee, the better line men on the offensive line and defensive in. I want to say thanks for having me by. Jason I think to Tennessee is definitely going to be better. Whether they can get to a big number or not, I think is is is hard to predict. But but I really like, and I think everyone else does as well with. Jeremy Pruitt is doing. Yeah. Well, listen, you is your dad there. Yep. Yup. Beside me. Hey there. Listen, you've got a fine. Young man there. Thank you very much for turning him onto a good show. No problem. He watches it with me all the time. And he finally got through on the phone. So he's excited about that. Well, we appreciate it. And we hope you guys will call back again sometime. Jay. Thank you very much. Yeah. No problem. You guys have a good one. Okay. You too nice of you to call. Mike it good. Good day. Mike is up next in Georgia. Hey, Mike, right ahead. Hey, it's been awhile since I talk to you. I know Steph. Emerson said he wouldn't go there. But I am go. I know it's not polite to you still logistic fallacies in conversation. But might Bianchi is a, but her troglodyte in this the same guy who was writing in his columns that you CF should've been the national champions two years ago, Georgia Alabama, where did you crawl out of he did say that he he also believe about ten or eleven years ago, sitter and Meyer was going to bring pain and and punishment to the Alabama. That he is the new bear Bryant he said that in two thousand and nine since then Florida hasn't won a title, Alabama has one five. Hyun a gift himself in his conversation with a you because he's saying Georgia's overrated, but then he was arguing about Mark richt coulda done this and should have done that and Georgia gave him fifteen years. How many coaches has Florida had since two thousand nine how many? On their third fulltime coach probably got. Head coaches since nineteen sixty four. Yeah. I think I think Joe Florida's had five coaches overall to interims and three full-time. And if you're going to talk smack you got back it up on the field since we went one more game. We win this decade and five of the last eight Georgia's one Georgia's got and is he said Georgia's nine league program. Are we ala? Bama. No, we're not. But then who not many programs are but Georgia is the second. Most if titles at thirteen five more than our Bama eight hundred nineteen wins. There's only ten other programs that have wins. I mean. Yeah, we haven't won a national championship since eighty one. But before Auburn one in two thousand ten they hadn't won one since nineteen fifty seven and the team of the day right now. Clemson they have won national championships in. I mean before Daboh they had won national championship. And then it was thirty five years before they won the national championship is I five years. He lost South Carolina five times Georgia's on the right for trajectory. And if if the fifteen years, if Kirby smart, you know, has I I just don't know he. Triggered me on that it just he was arguing against himself. Thank you very much, Mike. Do appreciate the call. Let's continue with more and BRUCE'S up next in Florida Hilla Burs follow. How're you doing today? Bruce. We are doing great. Thank you, man. You should know how to start off with show. You got all these caters and Georgia fans fired up and deathly Emma gator. But there's one thing I wanna point out Paul this the dickers- between curry smart, and Dan Mullen is a confidence side there. Now, you've met both of them but overall day in and has both confidence and he's giving that to his players and the fans, and I think before they gave him the same ounce out copies. Had Florida's gonna be at the same place that Georgia is. Let me ask you to explain. I mean, I I understand the definition of the word confidence. But how how do you apply in relation to Mullen versus Kirby? Because I don't think Covey smart has company the same confidence to Dan Mullen has coach Mullen has won two national championships when he was at Florida befall brutal. He Bruins spruce Bruce for you. Don't wanna go there. He helped went down. Hold on a second. You you really don't want to start comparing was that's what national will you have any idea. Or are you are you would you? Let me ask you one question. Roy. You don't have any idea. How many national championships Kirby's been a part of what I I hate bringing that up. Yeah, you're right. But I do still believe, and I think that his fountain is demos confidence is greater than cover smarts is and look back when Spurrier was a head ball coach Georgia out recruited us every year. They look like and spur would always bring that up. And he he he used that against Georgia. And I'll think mullah's doing the same thing, and deer might Bianchi. I hardly ever agree with him. And I don't agree with him this time he, but he he sure helped me get this ball rolling. Well, listen you. Had friends in coaching who do question Kirby smarts game late game coaching ability. I think that's you sought against Alabama both times. But does we we need more information? I mean, I agree with you. It's it's a fascinating topic. But we will continue to discuss it. We have a couple more hours to go here. Hope you'll stick around phone lines available at eight five five two four two seven two eight five.

P. morgan chase bank eh an equal housing lender from wondering i'm dan rubenstein and this is sports wars <music> in our last episode we explored the twists and turns of the georgia florida football rivalry in the nineteen eighty s in one thousand nine hundred ninety s how vince dooley and herschel walker dominated the gators with georgia's ground and pound conservative offense and then and how steve spurrier and the gators blew up the status quo by throwing the ball all over the field and vaporizing georgia and the rest of the s._e._c. S._e._c. florida fans continue to see georgia fans as stodgy arrogance while georgia fans still see florida as obnoxious and and loud as the twenty-first century arrives the rivalry enters explosive new chapter with a pair of coaches that will once again highlight that divide and oh yeah there's also maybe the most polarizing college player of all time tim tebow. This is episode three tibo time. It's december two thousand four in salt lake city utah urban meyer sits in his living broke thinking over the most pivotal decision of his career sitting across from meyer pitching him hard is jeremy foley the university of florida's <unk> athlete director he desperately wants meyer to leave his current job as head coach at the university of utah and come to gainesville to coach the gators last night he officially offered meyer the job and made his offer then he checked into a local hotel and waited to ring myers doorbell once again this morning meyer new an offer like this was coming utah's program dates back to the late eighteen hundreds but before meyer they'd never earned a berth in a major bowl game then in just his second year meyer and the youths went undefeated ending the year with a dominant win in the festival stibal. He's a forty year old perfectionist of a head coach with an innovative offensive system. It's a fast tricky version of what's known as the spread offense ans- myers utah q._b. Running the show for the utes alex smith will soon be taken number one overall in the n._f._l. Draft this is all to say the young coaches stock is through the roof and now florida's athletic director fully wants mayer. Take the next step in gainesville and bring his spread offense and attention to detail to the stadium. Steve spurrier affectionately renamed the swamp to meyer florida feels is like the kind of place that embraces exciting new ideas but he's also the hottest young commodity coaching and he's a proud product of the mid in west he could easily say no to florida and wait for something better to come along. Maybe closer to home. Actually something better and closer has has already come along in the midst of florida's attempts to court meyer notre dame fires. It's coach the historic program makes it known that they also want meyer and myers intrigued. He has fond memories of the five years he spent as a fighting irish assistant at notre dame early on as his career began to take off. He's since called notre dame his dream job last night meyer paddock good meeting with the notre dame people but now it's florida's athletic director jeremy foley who's here in his living room trying to convince him to join and lead an s._e._c. school in a part of the country tree. Were mayer has no ties. He's just not sold yet. The gators have struggled in the few years since steve spurrier left for the n._f._l. So even with a good amount of talent florida feels like a fixer upper while notre dame would be turnkey. Everything's already in place would florida. It does have going for it is he doesn't have the pressure of replacing a legend that fell to ron zook a former florida and n._f._l. Assistant who had the impossible the job of replacing steve spurrier it started poorly for zuck in gainesville florida fans knew he wasn't anyone's top choice and even started a website called fire runs dot com before coached a single game in the swamp. How's that for pressure. Zuck actually beat georgia twice in three tries recruited very well but without high level results. It wasn't enough to save his job so so yes. Expectations are still sky high in gainesville after spurrier raise the bar for so long as meyer considers considers foley's pitch. He starts to see the big picture. Maybe notre dame has more tradition but with that can come people set in their ways about the old school way of doing things florida. Meanwhile plays in the s._e._c. arguably the best conference in the country recruiting wise his potential new home state is the most football football talent rich state in the country and held by the looks of things. There's already a ton of talent on the roster to win gainesville pretty quickly and the fans this will be willing to embrace his more modern way of playing. Maybe gainesville just has that energy. He's looking for and maybe south bend doesn't meyer concede that florida's athletic director is determined to not make the same mistake he did with zuck no more backup plans. If florida's going to be a big time national program program they should be able to land their first choice and right now. That's meyer a bold and uncompromising coach. That fully knows gator. Fans will immediately love. They've been talking for forty five minutes. When mayer take a quick look at his wife then gets up walks across the room and shakes foley's hand and he's sold notre. Dame may be his dream job but florida is the right job deal done and with that florida. Has there football coach now. They just need a quarterback. It's february first two thousand six signing signing day for college football recruits mark richt sits in georgia's football offices and looks over the list of players who signed with the bulldogs these feeling better and in better about it richt of former college quarterback himself arrived at georgia five years ago after a long career as an assistant coach at florida state. The dogs have finished as a national top ten team four out of the five seasons. He's been here as georgia's head coach in that time. They've won a pair of s._e._c. <unk> titles and played in two sugar bowls. There's no reason to believe that there quickly gaining momentum will go off the tracks anytime soon on top of richt always is coming across as earnest and mindful. He's also a devout christian. This all matches up pretty perfectly with georgia's reputation and aspirations as a program. Oh gram he's an ideal air vince dooley's legacy duly won a national championship and became a beloved legend over the course of his twenty five years the head coach of the georgia bulldogs and now he's the athletic director at georgia. He's the one who hired rix which blessed the young coach with the high level stamp of approval but the expectations for this job are still incredibly high and that all begins on signing day. Maybe rick doesn't seem like the kind of guy who can thrive in the murky waters of college football recruiting but rick's branded his program. It's integrity by its ability to exist above the fray prey just like duly did before him for rick's. This is the georgia way rick's been able to sell a couple of high profile out of state. Recruits is with that vision. One of them is a young quarterback from texas named matthew stafford. The other is a new jersey running back named no sean marino. Marino chose chose the bulldogs just a few hours ago in the midst of signing day only a couple of weeks after he visited the florida campus. This is a huge get for richt an enormous miss win over the new coach in gainesville and it's exactly what he needs on the field rick lost his first head to head matchup against meyer last fall it was rick's six fourth loss in five years against the gators and it's spoiled and otherwise great georgia season. The thing is it doesn't matter how many games you in georgia if you simply simply can't beat florida losing to the gators with how good florida's been means falling out of contention for s._e._c.'s eastern division and thus the conference prince as a whole beating florida rick hopes begins today with his most talented recruiting class yet three three hundred fifty miles south of athens georgia urban meyer locks in his own class of siamese a few hours from now and e._s._p._n. Recruiting expert will ranked. Thank georgia's recruiting class as the fourth best in the country an incredible accomplishment but that same expert will put florida's class at number one meyer polls in eleven of the top hundred fifty recruits in the country including the nation's best wide receiver prospect and a highly coveted blue chip quarterback that quarterback tim tebow played his high school football in jacksonville only a few miles from where georgia and florida annually annual leave meet to do battle. He's an unusual talent in several ways i he doesn't actually attend his high school. He's home schooled but is allowed to play on on the local team second. He's left handed which is pretty rare for passers. Also he's built like a tank thicker and more muscular than your typical tall lean quarterback. He looks like he should be running through people rather than throwing over them but there's something else about tim tebow that meyer can't ignore part of it is that tibo fits perfectly into myers spread offense which requires a quarterback who can run and throw equally well but it's also that people gravitate toward and want to follow the young q._b. Tibo hasn't it factor that no one can completely explain and meyer knows all about tvos blows origin story how bob and pam's roots date back to the world's largest outdoor cocktail party how their baby tim survived that harrowing pregnancy how he grew up to become a local hero in the jacksonville area and now that the miracle baby is now a miracle teenager myers pushing hard to get him to follow in his parents is footsteps and attend the university of florida u._b. We wanted florida. You have all the skills being despite tebas. His family ties to the gators meyer has to sell tibo on choosing florida over another rebuilding college football power alabama even with their recent struggles goals. The crimson tide are a behemoth of program and alabama's coaching staff in desperate need of a quarterback who can lead them into a new era push very the hard for tibo but meyer cells tibo hard on those family connections tebow is impressed with how authentic direct myers his intensity reminds reminds him of his own. He makes his mind. He's going with urban to florida in fact tebas so excited to get going that. He immediately enrolls in classes. Asses meyer knows that with t-boz arrival the future of florida football has arrived as well a few short months later florida weather's a late rallied to beat georgia twenty one fourteen marked rick's record against the gators drops to one and five with georgia now in his rear view humira meyer accomplishes the unthinkable in only his second season as head coach at florida with tibo serving as his backup quarterback in short yardage battering during ram the gators destroy ohio state to win the national championship and they brought the hammer back in if quarterback tim tebow.

Two thousand seven on the practice actus field in gainesville less than a year after he led the gators to a national championship. Urban meyer has a mess on hands. One of his best defensive player's has just been arrested on felony burglary charges and he's not the first since winning the national title this the eighth florida player to land in legal trouble in just the past nine months and that number keeps growing as reporters swarm meyer cameras raise. One of them asked him a simple question gitte. How concerned are you most concerned about. That kind of stuff is going to catch me when i read the newspaper about what's going on in this country and what's going on. This goes on his football. Team goes on this campus. I'm concerned paradigm concerned for both but some critics are starting to wonder how concerned meyer fire really is the previous spring. A florida linemen got into a fight with a man outside a nightclub he punched and spit on the guy then the player went to the trunk in his car pulled out an ak forty seven and opened fire. No one was hurt but the linemen wasn't done getting in trouble. He was arrested on marijuana charges and again again on assault charges. Eventually after the player was suspended. Maya reinstates the linemen to his team. The coach believes in second chances maybe even even third or fourth chances among those. He's given second and third chances through their troubles is supremely talented tight end named aaron when hernandez hernandez track record includes punching a bouncer so hard at a club that he ruptured the man's eardrum just a week ago the tight end was questioned with other players about a shooting near gainesville nightclub meyer clearly doesn't know what hernandez will eventually become fully capable of the tight end will be convicted of murder in two thousand fifteen and go down as one of the most notorious athlete turned criminals in history but even in two thousand seven in his leniency with player troubles is starting to affect myers reputation particularly when compared to mark wrecks and rick's down home image rick tho- isn't immune to his own players having brushes with the law his players disciplinary problems are also mounting up and becoming media stories race eventually it becomes a running joke among georgia and college football fans that rick's lost control of his team but ric tells the media that that's because he's holding his players accountable nothing else <hes> i don't enjoy letting guy go but sometimes <hes> he makes a decision or a series of decisions that had cost him that opportunity in a way these coaches are perfect examples of the historical oracle divide between georgia and florida or at least of the perceptions of each just as georgia fans have always looked down on florida fans as unsophisticated in classless. Just as vince dooley spoke like a guy with a master's degree in history and steve spurrier couldn't stop talking trash about rivals. The contrast rest is clear once again with urban meyer's ruthless win at all costs program and mark ricks georgia way the bulldogs may want to appear to be above the fray and classier than their rivals to the south but the gators think that's just a cover for georgia's own arrogance and insecurity about being passed by their images may be different but they're both just trying to find a way to beat each other and establish themselves as regional and national powers and sometimes times that leads to trouble. It's now dozens of florida players who've been arrested even dating back to spurrier's era. Maybe it's just in the gator for in gainesville d._n._a. To view and deal with those problems a little differently for the greater football good it's possible that florida by its very nature may may be more willing to take bigger risks in order to beat georgia and stay on top and in certain cases that can backfire in a big way if nothing else though meyer knows is he deflects in spins questions from the media. He's got tim tibo. We're talking about a quarterback who drinks wchs glass of milk the night before each game. He's the golden boy and as long as he's the polite humble face of the program things can't be all all that bad no matter the off field troubles of his teammates and as long as he's got tibo the winning isn't going to stop but along the way meyer thinks he's still got to put georgia back in its proper place. It's november first two thousand eight jacksonville florida. It's a year after the gator. Stop when nearly all seventy mark rex georgia players rushed the field after the bulldogs first touchdown against florida urban meyer and tim tebow are determined termined to get even in control right now twenty one three here's tibo now he froze it down the left side as the touchdown louis murphy number nine and he beat allan asher number two forty four yards gators increased the lead. What was once a close game at halftime is now thirty three florida by the fourth quarter and now the gators have just intercepted a georgia pass and returned it deep into bulldog territory. Tim tebow is now. The defending heisman trophy winner he still the junior and even with over a year of eligibility left. He's already a college football. Legend and the gators are looking more and more like a team of destiny even after a crushing one point loss to ole miss that looked like it was going to derail their season. The gators only got stronger. Thanks in part to a post game speech by tibo. That sounds like something straight out of friday night lights. I just wanna say one thing to the fans and everybody get her nation <hes>. I'm sorry extremely sorry you know. We're hoping for an undefeated season that was my go son has never done here but i promise you want thing. A lot of good will come out of this. You'll never seen any player in the entire. Country plays heart is i will play the rest of the season and you never see someone pushed team. As hard as i will push everybody the rest of the season. He never see a team play harder. Then we will the rest of the season god bless the gators have won three straight since that tibo speech and they're about to win again decisively over their archrival georgia the gators could run the ball and let the clock tick down down the gentleman's way of winning big but the bad taste of last year's gator stomp it still lingers so t boz sets up in the shotgun uh-huh and meyer signals in the play a pass detail for the end zone in what the gators aren't done yet as the final seconds run off the clock meyer handles it his own way last play of the game coming up timeout florida and then with thirty seconds left as tibo dances along the sidelines pumping up the already thrilled florida fans who haven't left for their awaiting postgame tailgate parties. Here's the response from urban meyer last year taken another time out to get as much as he can out of this football football game. He said all response is response has been forty nine ten and i'm calling every time out i go out and i'm gonna finish the game the way i want. The two thousand seven game became known as the gator stone but this one this will be forever known as the gator stop as in urban meyer stopping the clock to to celebrate a little bit and maybe it seems like a petty overly aggressive way to respond but urban meyer doesn't care this is florida and the gators have never have been afraid to play it fast and loose florida keeps winning that fall. I an s._e._c. title and then another national title. It's their second in three years. T-boz now. Iconic speech becomes known as the promise and it's immortalized on a plaque on the florida campus purpose if anyone doubted what myron tibo were capable of if anyone thought that maybe mark richt had flipped the script on the florida georgia rivalry with the gator stomp stomp. They don't think that anymore. It's now february six twenty nineteen at a high school auditorium in south florida a talented young defensive back from florida named k or elam sits surrounded by his family preparing to announce his college decision over the course of the past few years the dynamic between georgia and florida has shifted once again mayer announces after the two thousand ten season that he's retiring for health 'then family reasons after his retirement lasts a full year. He returns to coaching this time closer to home at ohio state there. He leads the the buckeyes to a national championship now. Though he's retired from coaching once again since his retirement the gators have struggled and are now on their third coach since meyer's departure though this one is dan mullen myers one time offensive coordinator who helped develop tim tebow for the gators in athens ends mark richt was let go by georgia after the two thousand fifteen season as it's becoming clear that the program is stagnating as a good but not great team but even with all this change the animosity hasn't gone anywhere georgia's head coach kirby smart has suggested that maybe the georgia florida game shouldn't wouldn't be held in jacksonville anymore. He claims the location remains a big advantage for the gators to play the game in their home state to his credit. The no nonsense smart smart has recruited on an unprecedented level in athens and quickly return georgia to a nationally contending level and he and the dogs have soundly soundly beaten florida these last two years as for florida's new head coach. Dan mullen himself one of the bigger coaching personalities in the nation. He's talked about returning florida to its roots of course despite what appears to be contrasting styles florida georgia have more in common than they think they do most of all they both do everything in their power to recruit and bring in the best football players in the south at its heart recruiting is the lifeblood of college football football coaches and fans and traditions and stadiums and reputations can only do so much. It's players who win and lose the games. Here's the thing the states of georgia and florida are known to have two of the biggest populations of talented high school football players in the nation. Both schools are constantly constantly looking for ways to steal the other states most talented players and after all these years even the players themselves still seem to relish the the intensity between the gators and the dogs. They know what this rivalry means. Florida fans want to get back to the spirit of spurrier's fun gun. They want to get back to to the ruthlessly pouring on points like they did with tibo. Take the blue chip cornerback carrier elam who punctuates twenty nineteen nationally televised college commitment commitment with the ultimate head fake of its in in the university of he's deciding between georgia and florida each of whom has offered ilma scholarship and would welcome welcome his commitment with open arms elam pauses he pulls out a georgia hat from behind the podium where he sitting before tossing it aside aside putting on a florida hat standing up and enthusiastically doing the gator chomp with both ox. He's staying in his home mm state. It's a small victory but in a rivalry this intense every win matters.

I'm Ross Tucker. The former NFL offensive lineman bunch of gigs in the media, including college games. I got army at eastern Michigan, this Saturday friend on CBS sports network. And so I got to tell you by the way it is really fun friend, watching army coaching tape, and really studying, you know the triple option and what they do offensively. I mean, it's just so different. Everybody else runs the same spread RPO zone, read out of eleven personnel stuff. It's just kind of cool to see something totally different. Yeah, it's funny. I just wrote something very similar to that talking about this Carolina Panthers offense in the NFL like, yeah, their numbers aren't crazy. They're not like top five in every category, but it's almost just fun. It's like a nice change of pace to be able to watch something completely different. Obviously, there's so much that they can do off of all that triple option stuff and our. Armie obviously very experienced at running that kind of scheme. Yeah. I mean, there's more than one way too skinny cat. Okay. So I was obviously I called Yale Penn Friday night trying to think. There aren't. Nobody comes off the top of my head in terms of a senior NFL prospect really in that game. Right now. There might be some guys over the next couple of years, especially I think on Yale, but I do want to get your thoughts on what college football you watch because I wasn't able to watch a whole lot traveling to London. Yeah. So early on for the twelve o'clock game Saturday. I wanted to focus in Michigan, Michigan state, but the weather delay there. They had lightning in the area very early. So that's sent me over to watch temple Cincinnati. I wanted to kind of study Delvin Randall, the free safety for the owls. I haven't gotten to them yet, but I've heard a lot of good things out of that program from people that I've talked to. He'll come up and defend the Ron. He's made some plays and coverage this year. He did flash in the game. They made some plays Wisconsin around the football. He had one targeting call that was called on him, and then the flag was picked up just when I think I know what targeting is. Then there's one of them like, oh, yeah, it's definitely targeting comes back. The ova Delvin. Randall was around the football, certainly a guy that I'll be watching moving forward. And then Michael dog is a defensive lineman as well for temple that I studied in the past. He didn't flash in this game, but you know, athlete kid, hi motor. I'm not sure if you plays d. end or detectable in the NFL not quite that far in the evaluation process on them, but certainly there's potential there once that the Mitch wants to Michigan and Michigan state game got back up and running. I did go back over to that game just because I had a bunch of prospects. I've just kind of wanted to get a sense of watching on TV. I, I hate to see Felton Davis the wide receiver for Michigan state get hurt. He's six, four, two hundred, ten pounds. It was a non contact injury. They showed the replay right away and you could see he was just just honestly releasing off the line of scrimmage and just went down, you know, really tough to see that had a huge game the week before against Penn State really has been the focal point of that passing in the last couple of years. It's a huge loss resp-. Party moving forward Davis, quarterback, Brian Lewinsky's under underclassmen. I haven't studied law work yet. This was honestly the first time this season that I've really just kind of honed in and tried to watch him. I know the elements weren't great. You know, obviously the weather and you lose Davis. But I thought, you know, based off TV anyway that the ball came out a bit late. The placement wasn't great either most of the throws I wasn't overly impressed with the work and then even on the other side of the field, I was equally disappointed with shape. Patterson know Michigan state's offense could not get things going. So the wolverines had good field position for most of the afternoon, especially in that second half, it felt like Michigan state was getting a football or Michigan was getting football, you know, right around midfield and they just couldn't capitalize. And there were times he was taking bed sack shape. Patterson other times we boss should have come out. They actually had a lot of really good replay angles in the game. So you can kind of see what shea was looking at and the buzzers got to get out of his hand. He looked a little bit panic back that are at times was holding it on all holding on. To it too long. I wasn't really turned on at all by that performance really either quarterback and we can give credits both defenses both were sworn into the football, but that was still one of my takeaways, some positive stamp way. The one guy I did come away with good vibes within that game was carrying Higdon the senior running back from Michigan. You know, he's not the biggest or fastest guy, but he can make people miss. He's tough. He's competitive. I saw mix some blocks and pass protection that kind of caught my eye, but he also had a couple of highlight runs. I think he finished with a game where almost one hundred fifty yards on the ground. I don't think he's an every down player at the NFL level, not a primary ball carrier at the very least. But I think he's got ability. He's gonna find a whole. I do like him as a player. So Karen Higdon was a guy that I really liked coming out of that game. Go into the mid afternoon games. I watched Clemson NC state. I watched a lot of college football, Saturday, Ross. I was like glued on my couch most of the day, Clemson NC, Clemson NC state. You know, as you could tell the final score, the Tigers just kinda ran away with this one. It was a little disappointing. Honestly. I was hoping for a little bit of a better game. It was a really rough day for Ryan Finley into quarterback from NC state. He through a couple of picks, just did not look comfortable did not look good. I've always liked Finley, but the hype on him, I think, has gotten a little bit overblown, especially coming into the season. I think a lot of people thought, you know, he's the number one, senior quarterback. He's going to be a first round player. I talked about it both last year watching as junior and then over the summer nice player. He's gonna last in the NFL longtime, but at best I think he's like a low end starter and probably more of a top and backup. When I see Ryan Finley knows how to play the position timing rhythm guy, accuracy overall is pretty good, but not great arm talent. There are a lot of areas where I wanna see him kind of take the next step, but a lot of that stuff, I don't know how much better he can get and some of his in some of his flaws. So I do think he's got to believe stick in the NFL. One guy that stood out again was. Travis z. t. and the sophomore running back from Clemson showed up in this game. The kid runs hard. I'm excited to study him this off season. He's not eligible yet for the twenty nine hundred NFL draft. Obviously the quarterback for Clemson. Trevor Lawrence, true, freshman obviously also not eligible yet, but he made he threw some. He made some good throws in this game really showed up big kid, easy thrower clemson's defense as well stall over the field. They made things hard for Finley, the d. line was really active. Their linebackers are making plays both in coverage and then downhill against the run. It was a good good day overall for that group on defense, then they're the early evening game started. I could make my mind up between Washington state Oregon or LSU Mississippi State. So I kind work four, three in both games that LSU game went about as I thought it would. I really struggled how seeing how Knicks, Charles and EVA's sippy state offense would be able to move the ball against that Tigers defense, especially on the road at night in death valley, and that turned out to be the case just three points for miss you. I thought he struggled, Nick. Seeing things. He wasn't seeing the rush well, the ball's not coming out quick enough as a runner. He struggled getting much going thing going as well. You'd think that's kind of a hallmark of his game on the other side. LSU did everything could keep onto sweat from being factor in this game, but they struggle with that the the senior lines up both left and right in was really impressive watching this game on television really disruptive against the run and the past. I think he's really helped himself this year. I'd say probably Ross just as much as anybody at that position in the country. You know, he's long. He's pretty athletic. I think he does some nice things with his hands. I think his pass rush plan has taken a step in the right direction from his junior to his senior year. He's constantly looking to find ways to win at the top of the rush. He doesn't have like, elite flexibility doesn't have, you know, an elite explosive first step, but I think the physical tools are good enough. He has a good idea of what he's doing with his hands. He knows how to defense the run three while he was destroying guys at the point of attack. An shedder in this game. He's just a well rounded player, so drop back in coverage a couple of times in the game as well that I notice. So just a complete guy, I was pretty impressed with them and then you know out west watching that Oregon Pac twelve game. Obviously, my focus was on Justin. Herbert. He did drop some dimes in the game when I was watching made some plays on the move with his arm and with his legs. But some of the throws that he made the intermediate area. We're just really awesome Assi. I thought it was deep ball accuracy didn't look great again, again, just from the TV angle, so I'll get a better sense of that down the road. But you know, he's big, he's athletic chicken, stick it in a tight windows. Oregon's problem offensively was that they struggled on third now I think they went, oh, for eight to start the game. And that's just not a winning formula festively. And it's a big reason why they struggle to put up points early in this game defensively forgot. I think the announcers most have said, Jalen jokes name about seventeen times. A one of my favorite players in the country is, you know, you know, I was keeping an eye on him when Washington state had the ball. He came into the game leading the pack twelve in. Tackles for defensive lineman. I know the sack production hasn't been there, but I think he's still stuck on two and a half sacks, but I just love the way that this kid plays the game. I think he's got traits to be successful relatively early in his NFL career, and then just another name that stood out. Troy die, the linebacker and all over the place in this game he did get hurt. I'm pretty sure he came back but early on in this game. I mean he was constantly at the football, not a guy that I've studied yet, but was really active and I'll get to him some point soon. God. I like it. What about there are some news we need to talk about since last week? I guess the big news caches feels like it was like three weeks ago, but then can't posts in news which I mean, I don't really know that there's much to talk about here. Fran number one, we all knew he was going to come out. And then number two, early making a big deal out of the fact that he is not coming back for our state. I mean, the guy had surgery like it would be one thing to me Fran and worthy discussion. If he just kinda left his team in the middle of the year, but the had surgery, he's not going to rush back from surgery to play college football. That makes no sense. Especially when he's got twenty five million plus coming to them. This isn't like a phantom hamstring injury all can you play Kenny? Not. We remember today beyond counties final year where. There was like, it was kind of like nondescript what the injury was, but it was just he's really banged up, you know, when's he going to get back anyone's if people were kind of murmuring? All right. Well, what's going on here? Yeah, you're right. I mean, they closed the surgery. It was on on an abdominal muscle, whether it sports hernia, whatever it was had some kind of core muscle injury got surgery on it. People knew he wasn't coming back till November. I do wonder how much this kind of news kind of affect. Look. They came out and looked incredibly flat. As I said, I didn't watch the game. I was watching the game. Obviously, you know, pretty on give credit to produce Jeff Brahmin and that's coaching staff. It's a really, really good at skiing. Things up to get guys open points on the on the board, but you would have expected a better defensive effort from Ohio State in that game. Who knows how much of effort, how much impact the news had, then things like that. But no, I not really surprised, especially, I know you've said here on the show in the past that you know with the way that you know his father thinks when you had Joey that just went through this whole process, they understand the business of this whole thing. So not surprising. It all at least. No, and me having played seven years for five teams. I mean, I I have talked to players before and their parents about what they should do, and I have pretty strong opinions on it just from a business Tampa point. And unfortunately, friend, you know, most of the time the better decision is going pro early and is not taking the injury risk and is starting to get paid for what your body can do before your body breaks down. You know, we all love college football, but you know, unless you really, really highly value the college football experience or you really think you can increase your value. There really doesn't make sense to come back and he can increase his value. So he becoming back just because he loves the college experience because he wants to play the end of the season or any player that comes back. And that leads us to Justin Herbert who. Who you know, Jason lockenfora says, is likely to return to school. I got to tell you friend, I highly doubt that that happens. I think that's the type of thing. That sounds good now, and it sounded that way with Sam darnold as well. It won't you realize you're going to be a top five pick and the money that that is and maybe for a team like the New York Giants, that debt kind of city that franchise. They have Odell and shepherd and Ingram and saquon Barkley. You're not going to get a better situation than that. Now there might be other teams, maybe it's the raiders I don't know. So maybe he wouldn't be there, but I just I'd be shocked if he turned that down and I can't remember the last time that debt seemingly worked out for a guy. You know, I, it seems like more. It's like the liners and the Barclays, and the guys that ended up going later after they go back for another year. Yeah, I guess my one recent one that worked out for him was Andrew luck guy that everybody was the same kind of timeframe where he was a redshirt sophomore and everybody thought, all this guy's gonna come out and he's going to be the guy, and he went back for his redshirt junior year and still ended up going number one. I think with with Herbert, the big reason that people are pointing because this this isn't like a new thing. You lock and four is the most recent report it, but people have been kind of whispering this around the league for for months. Now we've talked about it on the show a little bit and kind of alluded to it. A lot of people have talked about number one, how important academics is both to Justin enters family. His younger brother is going to be joining Oregon this fall as I think he's a tight end or big receiver. So there's, you know, he's from Eugene grew up rooting for the ducks. They've got a good chance next year. I think to kind of go into the year if he were to go back, a lot of people feel like they would be championship contenders and playoff contenders coming. Out of the pack twelve, you know. It seems like that's, that's certainly out of the question now with two losses. But I think when you look at what he is looking at looking going back, I think it really is going to come back to just what his convictions. You're right? Yeah, everyone that at this time a year ago saying, yes, Sam darnold probably gonna go back that seems like that's where the hours pointing. He ends up changing his mind. I do under, you know, in a lot of that you look at USC had coming back last year. They lost the Burnett. They lost Ronald Jones. They were losing pieces up front. I wonder if Sam darnold kind of looked around and said, you know, maybe now's the time for me to jump. That's not necessarily the case with Oregon. Oregon's got their skill offensively most of their best players are going to be returning next year or could return next year. I I'm very interested. I it seems like the arrow seems to be pointing towards him going back. I do agree though. When you look at this situation, the landscape right now, if you're a team that needs a quarterback in this draft, your best hope. Nope. Is for her in your picking up the top, your best hope is for Justin Herbert to to come out because you know, as much as I like drew lock, I don't think drew lock is that is a top twenty type of guy. I don't think that you know will Greer personally as a top twenty type of guy could they go go that high shore, but I think it almost be kind of bumping them up a little bit. I think Herbert has the ability to be at the end of the day. I mean, what is he? He started, he started what six, seven games last year because of the injury. He six. Seven starts in now. I think he could really benefit from added wraps and another year from being that guy and people have talked about one of the big flaws for him coming into the year that people were not gonna four was, you know, he's not that take charge leader. He's not that dynamic personality. I think that's an area where you can look at and say, hey, like another year of being that guy for Oregon could really help himself really kind of helped him his stock and helped him improve his ability to go back. A lot of people that I've talked to in in scouting across the league. When you talk about quarterback. And then coming out early as opposed to going back for their senior years. Just at that position specifically, that's the thing that they always bring up and people talked about it was that case with Andrew luck, but even going back as far as Peyton Manning when Payton was coming out, I've talked with multiple people said, yeah, like he could have easily come out when he was underclassmen we, he was eligible his first year and he probably still would have been the number one pick, but he was, he got so much help from going back and just being the guy for Tennessee and learning more about himself and terms of being a leader, you know, being responsible for everybody in that locker on the face of the franchise, and we know what Peyton turned out to be. It's going to be very interesting. It's a follow what Justin decides to do. Who are some of the guys you've had a chance to study recently friend? Well, I went back with Nick Bosa news. I went back and just watched all of this stats from this year just to kind of wrap up that evaluation coming into the season. We talked about how the traits were there and how we were just excited to see what he would look like a three down player because remember last year, his sophomore year, they had like seventeen defensive lineman coming out in the draft and they all play off the edge defensive. And so you know, those guys were gonna steady rotation boasts flashes against the run. We're just that and they were flashes. So I was excited to see him coming into the year and tight gains we have to play at the point of attack, how is he going to be consistently as a three down guy. Now, of course, in his two and a half games, they were ahead for a large portion of them. So we still haven't seen him in a lot of those situations. But I think we've seen enough to this point where that's not really a concern and we the kid is just he super explosive. He's naturally powerful. He's over two hundred sixty pounds. He uses his hands. Well, he's got a deep toolbox of. Moves as a pass rusher. He knows how to work them in and mix it up against offensive lineman, keep them guessing him enjoy him and his bro- Joey. Have that in common coming out at times. I thought he was a little bit laid off the ball when he was reading the man across from him instead of reading the ball, the snap. But it seemed like that was typically really on plays when he had to worry about trying to disrupt the tight end and the release and not just Pinhas ears back and go this. He's a great player. There's not a lot to say the traits are all there when it's all said and done, though I do think that Joey was probably a little bit further along than where Nick is this point that could be because we just had more tape on on Joey at this stage of his career. But he's, he's going to be a top five pick probably a top three pick potentially the number one pick depending on where Herbert goes and who's picking it number one. But as long as everything else checks out, you know, medical field, all that he's going to be one of the first picks in the draft. I like it. I also like dose equities. I'll tell you why friend? Because I like people that are smart. I like companies that are smart. Well, first of all, I just like beer that tastes good. That's most important just like beer. But I also like companies that know the right places to advertise does is the official beer sponsor of the college football, playoff. They've got hilarious commercials with Spurrier and less miles. The last commercial I solve Spurrier says, I love winning, but nothing hits the spot like post game does keys while sitting atop a fan caravan. I'd say giddy up, you wild fan. Take me away. That dose ecu's isn't gonna drink itself. And by the way I played for sprayer and I can pretty much guarantee he had a couple of those keys after every game that he coached, and you know what? I don't blame him what's wrong with that. Absolutely. Nothing drink those. Ecu's responsibly. Imported by survey says, make hones- White Plains, New York. Anybody else you get chance to check out this past week friend? Yeah, I watched it on Miami defensive tackle Gerald, Willis. This a former big time recruit. He's actually Landon Collins, young younger brother to safety from the New York Giants. He started his career at Florida, and I don't know if you remember this Ross, but he he was the guy. Remember when Jameis Winston ran out of bounds and that Florida, Florida state game a Florida state Florida player, shoved them that was Gerald, real Gerald. Willis, just kind of random thing about him from early in his career. He did have some issues at Florida, so he transferred out went right to Miami and after redshirt he played for the hurricanes. But then he sat out last season took the euro away from football just to get things. Right. All reports are that he came back a change guy. You know his priorities were in order. He's doing everything right now. He's been named a game captain multiple times the season by Mark richt. And you know, Mark richt has been around a long time. He's not just doing that because he's a senior. He's doing that because he's disease deserved it. Hope. Everything is all straight narrow from that side of it. But on the field, he exploded onto the scene week one against LSU, and he was a freak show in that game constantly in the backfield disrupting the action. That's his game. He's a gap shooter. He's got that quick first step to win quickly. Then he has the lateral agility to change and has the rain to change direction in the ranged to chase things down. Once he's in the backfield he's going to be a great fit for a one gap team. At the next level. My biggest concern on the field is just his ability to hold up against the against the run, double teams were not kind to him in the games. I watch even against base blocks one on one. He did struggle at times to hold his ground. So that could be an issue for him early on, obviously the off-field will be a big deal for him. He also had a niece surgery and his pass on the medical need to get checked out, but they're certainly talent there. Let's go to the SEC. I watched both of Missouri's tight ends this past week. This is an offense that plays both of these guys. They're heavy twelve personnel. Team and they've got to players. I think you're gonna play in the NFL. You've got the junior and Ross, no other NFL draft podcasts going do this. I'm going to try to take the plunge year junior tight end Albert Okubo nam not just Albert bell. Albert Oku bomb. The tout junior task catcher, second team all SEC last year, and then they've got the senior KENDALL blend. So he was the main reason Blanton because I wanted to make sure I got some. I hadn't studied them yet, but I thought, you know, let me watch. Oh, oh, cool. A-Bomb as well. Bland is a big kid. He definitely looks the part. He's got a great frame. He's built to play in the NFL right now. He's not a high volume receiver, but I think he handles himself pretty well there. He's not a great athlete. I think he'd be serviceable over the middle of the field. They will flex him out at times and he'll work in the slot. He stood out as a blocker as well. You know, whole lineup in line. He can use his length at the point of attack to move people in the run game. I think he's serviceable in pass protection as well. I think overall, when you look at them, I think he's got. In say. Level, you know, then you look to Oakland up. I don't want to say he's the opposite, but they definitely have complementary skill sets. You know he was a high school wide receiver. He's six, five, two hundred sixty thousand. I think he showed up at two twenty five and immediately put on a bunch of weight and he carries it well still a very fluid athlete. He's got natural ball skills. He was a high school men's basketball player, and that does show up on Phil had some drops in the three games that I've studied so far this year. So something needs to work on. He can play the ball well and and react to it in the air. But then he's just gotta finish more consistent, catch point. But the talents there for him to be a starting tight end of the NFL. He's not a great blocker right now, but he is willing and he serves 'table there. He can block on the backside and do some things out in space. He did line up in line at time. So he's got some experience with his hands irt, and I think that will serve him well moving forward. And he also just needs some work as a route run of the flashes her there, and he has athletes is going to be really good. He's just not consistent. Certainly not as consistent as KENDALL blunt who showed some savvy there. So. To me if you were to declare, I think oakwood bomb would definitely be one of the first tight ends off the board, but I also saw so thank you could definitely benefit from staying in schools. Well, I'll be interesting to see which way he goes. Alternately, I was gonna say friend. We're already the only draft podcast is going to talk about both Missouri tight ends, and then you're going to go ahead and actually try to pronounce the guy's name which was pretty impressive almost as impressive as how we get everybody ready for the match ups. That matter though, we know we know you guys love the draft, right? Here's the matchups. You should try to check out in week nine. It's head to head. We always start with the quarterbacks Fran, what do you got? Yeah. So drew lock from zuri. They take on Kentucky's where he's going to be a fun match up for drew lock because he's gotten a little bit overwhelmed with special, namely the supporting cast has gotten overwhelmed with Alabama Georgia. Some of the other defense is on the schedule, Kentucky, not as you know, over the top talented as those teams, but legitimate NFL town at all three levels for the Wildcats me, Josh Allen has helped himself as much as any pass rusher in college football this year, Jordan Jones, the undersize linebacker at the second level for Kentucky and then Derek baby. And the rest of that that secondary Mike Edwards for for Kentucky Kentucky's a group, so good matchup there for drew lock in that offense. Well, both those tight ends as well northwestern. They take on Wisconsin this week, so Clayton Thorson good opportunity for him against a talented, senior Laden defense. I'm going to keep an eye on those two linebackers in the middle for Wisconsin. TJ Edwards is a guy. I really like a three down player at the next level. Ryan timely is a guy that a lot of people like as well, then the senior safety to coda Dixon. So good matchup there for Clayton Thorson and then Vanderbilt, they always are going to take on supplier. I've always liked Kyle Shurmur Moore's as a backup option. You know, the more I watch them, I just don't think the arm talent is there necessarily be a starting quarterback, but there are a lot of things that he does well from the mental side, I think we'll play well. So I think he's a guy that's probably gonna stick in the NFL for a while. God. What about running backs? Linebackers Florida state takes on Clemson this week, and that's always a a great match up because there's always a lot of talent on the field. We know Florida state's having a down year, but certainly plenty of town on the pipeline. So you look at that running back the backfield with Florida state Jacko's Patrick is a senior big, physical honor. We talked about him back in the summer, a guy that can hit it down hill pretty instinctive kid, but known more for his play, strengthen and camakers is definitely the lightning into Patrick's thunder. He's got the ability to stretch the field vertically, but also get out in the perimeter and the screen game. I haven't watched much floor state this year, so I'm looking forward to watching this game and just seeing how those two backs do in this game going up against a tough Clemson defense. We know about that defensive line, but even you get to the second level can they'll Joseph is a senior linebacker there that a lot of people are really high on. He will be charged with trying to keep those guys under wraps in that's larger state backfield then. Go to the SEC. We've got Florida and Georgia. This week in Florida. They've got a running back in Jordan. Scarlet who missed the season last year is a senior in his really one of the bell cows for that offense. I'm excited to see him against this Georgia defensive front and namely the senior inside linebacker. Nitrous Patrick, you know, a guy that's got talent has had off the field issues with the BULLDOGS. It's been suspended multiple times, but he's an athletic guy. Inst- instincts are a little bit of a question. Mark is a little bit undersized, but a guy who's kind of built physically for today's NFL. So certainly got to keep an eye on in that game. And then I was state takes on Texas Tech. So we're gonna talk about David Montgomery, a player that I still haven't studied yet. He's draft eligible. He's in his junior season, watching them on TV. You see that contact ballots. He's built the right way he can make that I defend miss at a high level watching watching him against Texas Tech will be interesting because, yeah, Texas Tech is that we know they give up points in bunches, but they do. Defensive player that I had my eye on and people you watch the Netflix documentary, lash chance. You'll may remember from season to the linebacker Dakota Allen. Well, I watched down for the season and he did some nice things, and I do think that he's got NFL ability watching the code Allen. I think that you can see his ability to transition to the NFL. I love the mentality that he plays with an really you're talking about guy, six one, two hundred and thirty pounds. He's really good downhill against the run, like his play recognition against the run is really, really good. And again, I mentioned that physicality that ability to play sideline to sideline. I do worry a little bit about his range and his ability to cover a lot of ground. The kids always going hundred miles an hour. He'll be this'll be an interesting game here for him. Obviously dig towards his final valuation. I like it. How about some perimeter stuff? Why receivers tight ends against him DB's. Yeah, going back to the Florida Georgia game. I think you look at van Jefferson, a guy that can stretch the field lineup inside and outside for Florida, going up against this Georgia's secondary. And yet we know about the safety JR readers and underclassmen. We've talked a lot about the senior corner de'andre Baker. I'm not sure how often Jefferson's going to get matched up on Baker. It'll be at least a handful of time, and that will be a fun match up to watch in this game. I do like what Baker brings to the table. He's an instinctive kid. I think is ball skills are a little bit up and down, but he's really aggressive and competitive. You know, I think that'll be an interesting matchup especially when Jefferson tries to work vertical because that's one of the questions people do have is what it baker's long speed. So that's going to be an interesting match up there in that game and then Missouri taking on Kentucky. We talked about those two tight ends going up against this Kentucky second, or I liked the free safety. Mike Edwards. I think he's got the lead to play either in the post or in the slot at the next level. So he's got to watch in that matchup as well. Own line d. line friend, what do you got going back? Florida verse Georgia, that Martez Ivy is senior offensive lineman for Florida, getting most of his reps at left tackle kind of heavy footed guy got some position versatility. I do think he probably projects best as a swing backup guy that can kind of offer some value on the back end of a depth chart and the NFL level former big time recruit though he's got great size. So a lot of people are high on going up against Georgia defensive front that they've got some versatile playmakers man. The Andre Walker is kind of a d. n. linebacker, hybrid, a guy that can drop back in coverage sets really strong edges. He's really competitive, but he's turned it up as a pass rusher this year as well. So a guy that has a lot of tools that people are excited about, and then you have Jonathan Ledbetter on the other side and Ledbetter why you've got walkers kind of a d. n. linebacker. Hybrid. I think what Ledbetter is kind of d. tackle hybrid. I wasn't sure what is best positioned was watching a few games from earlier in the season, but really. Violent player, just guy. You can see just the the competitiveness, the place drank kind of shows up on film. He knows what he's doing with his hands. I don't know if he's a high high upside pass rusher off the edge. He can give you a little bit of juice on the inside, but watch those two guys against Martinez Ivy in this game. And then Clemson far state will go back to that one for one more match up Mitch high at left tackle for Clemson, going up against this Florida state defensive line, namely, Brian burns off. The edge burn has got really exceptional flexibility. You like that first step quickness. Not sure how big is that will be a question Mark for him when he decides to move onto the NFL DaMarcus Christmas is a defensive tackle senior there for the Seminoles that I've liked as well when I've watched him in the past. So a couple of guys to there to watch in that game in the trenches. I love it Fran. I also love being able to give our listeners a little something, something to help them out. How about free money?

Talk about a number of things including the tributes that continued to roll in for rod Bramlett to the service today on the planes. Let's get back to the calls at eight five five two four two seven two eight five and new one is up next in South Carolina. Hello, neil. And good afternoon. Was that? I said, fall. How are you doing? Great. Thank you for the call. Good. So look, I just wanted to come in about legend. I agree with you, but Georgia BULLDOGS, and I have been sorely disappointed Nick in the efforts that they have put forth, of course, I understand is talent related, but, you know what they have they have a lot to prove and. And so, what's your thoughts about that ball? Well, listen. I, I don't really know what they have to prove. I think they've been at the top of the chain, at least on one side for the last couple of years. I mean you tell me, why would why would this program have have that much to prove when you consider the, the last forty years? Well, I okay looking at our last national championship, which was in nineteen eighty I recall. But, but I see, I think what's happening in Georgia is this there in contention and under Mark richt? They, they had a brief moment in the sun. And I, I know what you're what some Georgia fans are, are saying and thinking that if Kirby smart can't get done this year. What's really different? I get that because Rick got off to a very good start. But I just feel like they are going to get it done in the in the fairly in the relatively new near near future. And I think this year could be that year. Well, I've, I say that I appreciate that. I recall. Rick and Georgia was playing our Bama. And I believe that if he had won that. Contest and Lanta. Yeah. He was ever statue on the on the. At in Athens. But unfortunately we didn't. And so, you know, and I it well you know, you're, you're right and there are points in history, and I, I will tell you, as someone who, who used to write for a living, the historical perspective on Kirby smart. If he doesn't get it done. We'll come down to last year. And, you know, he's had to double digit leads against the best program of, of the last ten years, and he hasn't been able to close the deal quite frankly I thought I mean both games were over Enrico hits the field goal at seventeen to seventeen point game. I mean, there's no chance album's coming back from seventeen down. And, you know, the confluence of events have been bizarre. But. Yeah. You in any sport, you learn how to win those games. And maybe if you're if you have to find fault with Kirby smart. That's the one negative, you, you will have to say that he has yet to figure it out. He said yesterday, there's still deficiencies. But Kirby smarts got the coach down better than anyone. I've ever met. He knows what's going on. And, and the reason why he knows what's going on. Is that he has been in so many championship games as a head coach as an assistant, and he, he knows the guy on the other side of the field better than we do? And I'm talking about Nick Sabin. That's right. That's exactly right. Well, no, I'm not. I'm not unhappy with Kirby smart at all. I am. Well, I'll say this. I said it before, I'm disappointed. I understand. Listen, I, I know a lot of really smart people in football who may not say this publicly because it's a big statement, but they believe this is the year and that's not a fan talking. Those are experts who I've been around in, in the last few weeks, and they, they see some fissures in the Alabama program. I it's hard to go against Nick Sabin and I'll be more than happy to go to go with him. One time too many than to second guess, and doubt him and be proven wrong. Look, I'm with you Nick Sabin has proven checked, Alabama is proven. Yeah. You know, they're, they're just amazing and all right. So you know what I like. I say, I'm gonna have to see it before I believe it now because of seen I've been pulled to the to the edge of few times, and we got dropped off into the abyss who else could compete for the national championship this year. Yeah. I mean, I think there are a number of schools. I, I, I mean, I think the two are obvious from from over here. And then, you know, I think Michigan's a possibility. I think I mean Clemson obviously among the favorites, Oklahoma, maybe Texas. I don't think I don't see any outliers. May I don't see a big. I don't see a pack twelve school getting in. I don't see a a surprise team. I think college football is very top heavy right now. Talk to me about Florida I do not believe they are there yet. And, and I know that comes as a shock to Florida fans who already think they have arrived. I don't think they have enough players. I think Molin has recruited well, but, but nowhere near where Kirby smart in Alabama are right now. Whereas Auburn Auburn, and I hate to be cliche monger, but Auburn is to me the most mysterious team in the because when you have a defense like they have, and I think they have among the best coordinators in the country and Kevin Steele. They're capable of winning games that even an average offense you should not be capable of winning. But I worry about Auburn as the season whereas down, and I, I would be concerned about them because of, you know, schedule schedules are, are tricky. I mean. I mean, if you told me that they, they could win at home against anyone. I think they can, and that includes Alabama and Georgia. Are they capable winning at am Florida and LSU? I don't think so. Because now I live in Columbia, and of course, South Carolina, God bless them, you know, they're, you know, they they're great spores other team. But I just think they're going to get murdered this year get ready for. Experts to proclaim that South Carolina is going to be the surprise team. I heard it the other day I was with a one thing in destiny around a lot of experts. I can't I as I talked about the schedule for Auburn to me, the schedule for South Carolina is worse and get be prepared to hear this over and over again. They have the number they have with number one two and three teams in the country on their schedule to on the road excuse me to at home one on the road. They, they go to Missouri, which is a very tricky game. They have Kentucky at home, which they've lost five straight times. They have Florida at home, which they should lose to. I don't see it. I just, you know, I May June and July this network and other networks will have countless people coming on. And there'll be a surprise team every every team in the SEC will be labeled as a surprise team by someone. Yeah, but, but, but I can guarantee you, South Carolina will not be my surprise. Right. But we'll thank you very great conversation. Enjoyed it. I Joe your show. Thank you. Great to hear from you. Listen. I that's not meant to be cruel is it's meant to be realistic. You can't. There's no evidence or data that we've seen from we'll much champion, South Carolina, that would support an argument that he could could navigate that schedule successfully. And I mean you know, with significant success, we're up against a bright, coach. Pat dye who won a number of SEC championships, including four straight at Auburn. He'll join us next. But cried passion than Patrick three of college football leaves here. The is the Paul finebaum show, our four podcast over back really glad you're here and. Though, I didn't as always welcome. Our next guest. He's hall of fame coach, one of the great coaches in the history won four straight as he c- crown while he was the Auburn head coach coach, Pat dye coach. Thank you very much. It's, it's always great to catch up with you. And I know for so many things going on. But I also know how difficult of the last couple of days have been where you live at Auburn. Now thank you very much for joining us. We all, you know, it has been on a whole community and the university and, and his immediate family. And, you know, the folks that listen to him every Saturday and. The thing that would have that people. You know all about everything how much he meant open, but he, he was a connection and the voice along when all the world because then, you know, you pick these games up everywhere, and there's. A lotta over and fans I got never gotten to come to a game that, you know, they know oven through God, Brandon. And, and he does a great y'all been. He's a great man on top of it. Then, and we don't. And but. That was probably the reason I wanted to talk to you. I got several of racist. I one of them is what's that guy's name down in Florida? Might pike Bianchi. Yeah. You know, it's interesting, you, you're Georgia player in I've been watching SEC football along with it. He is old. I, I went to my first SEC football game between Georgia Alabama and nineteen forty nine in the school is fourteen to seven I. I make my sister look it up. And make sure I'll try on the school, but fourteen seven Alabama, one in San Francisco. And because I. You know, I never went to Jacksonville but I played in the game three times and, and followed the Joey Florida game forever and it's it's just another home game for far and they can talk. Now Jacksonville when I played down there, that was was just a big southern country town, mass a metropolitan area, and with a protein sitting now that you got to compete with, but his his my take on visit this. How many I'm in his face was Florida stadium home? Yeah. I would say pretty close to it. Yeah. And Georgia the same thing you absolutely. How many how many hold in in Jacksonville? I'm guessing we can look it up, probably sixty five thousand. Is that how that's usually what it, okay? That's that, that saves playing his home in home. Here's the other thing. What about the students? What about the students, you know, they, they allot to students take, it's because the big money donors. Get the tickets to the to the Georgia Florida game. When his played in Jacksonville when you play it at home every other year. All of them, but about ten thousand of them eight thousand seven thousand whatever the Byzantine brains. The rest of them are going to go to Georgia students, and Joe your season ticket holders, which is big, and they trying to draw people and keep people on season-ticket list. And, and they, you know that game every other year home, it will have a Mendes impact played coach at sixty sixty seven thousand and I want to ask you, because I mentioned the story earlier, and in, in the mid eighties, you took a daring stand about moving the iron bowl and a lot of people, including myself. We're, we're very critical, but it turned out to be one of the great greatest moves of your ten year as head football coach and athletic director. Well, paul. Look when I did it. Dumb. I knew it was going to help Alabama as much as it has over. Then he helped all different way. But it it made Alabama upgrade facilities in Carr's because they played over a big games in Birmingham and coach Bryant played them in Birmingham posed by five thousand students go. The perma ham sale another seven eight thousand seasons. Bumping him when they play the coast. And I mean he was he was of then you really was doing, but and recruiting with the end you have the biggest game. Or you every year. Yeah. When you do it sober checks. We still have Chris job. I think we are kosher there. Yeah. Okay. I thought we were losing to, but I'm okay so I mean, but I listen, I, I have been to college football games for a number for four decades or longer, but I don't ever remember an atmosphere and you were head coach that rivaled that game in, in Auburn in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine I mean I mean you compare it to the Berlin Wall coming down and you aren't far off. Well, you been walking that so foul. Talk walk that I'm like to take a walk in don't care for it today. But that's one time a wall with I wouldn't have missed it in the work because you may step down. Oh. Single. Mom lives and bed is in children and grandchildren. The mama for hold the baby touch on about that is on. And, and my when I walked in this in the best. PCS driven. I see high. Am I gonna keep this shit? Well, we end this. On play. Tell you a whole coach, hold on a second because. I, I have this happened to me all the time. Somebody who's, like, don't move. You're talking action is. And I think coach die, it must be moving around because so we are. We are missing him a little bit. But we'll see if we can get him to be stationary. Maybe we can take you should we take a break, Mark. Okay. Okay. Okay. Coach you there. Okay. I bet we have the coach Kosheh whatever John told you to do do it. And let's, let's continue this conversation because I walked outside. I'm I met my house to call them and I was up on the porch and you know, and I gotta Ken Rue, so it, so it ought to be better. Okay. Well, let's, let's continue where we work. And I think your point is a good one. We're not really sure about Florida Georgia and you know it's all started because Kirby talked about it, but it just seems like. It does favor Florida. And I'm sure Kirby understands that he played in the game just like you did. Think about this now. I know it has economic impact on Jacksonville. But why not let it have an impact on him games? Exactly. And and but the big the big thing to me, it seems decades. You, you, you change that game home and home. It's just my crayon Alabama and we need to be playing Alabama, Georgia on different different. Here's we got we, we would be in my opinion better off to go back play to teach. Georgia, two years, in essence, they get to gain back to where we play Alabama at home, one year, Georgia, tell the next year and but you know that, that let me let me jump in here. The stadiums for, for the for the Jaguars seat sixty seven thousand apparently they bring in temporary seating. I think I think it gets to about eighty four thousand for that game, which is still short of where it would be on on the respective campuses, though. Yeah. Maybe it's it's a. You know, just for the. You know, tradition is broken we all the time and, and what the guy was saying has been that. Well, you know, things change and things have changed. And so it and, and I don't want, I don't want to sound like I'm from Georgia, or off Broadway, either one, I don't care which one of them wins. But to me, and I told when he was athletic director and rake off when he was coaching. And, and I'd say y'all crazes play a game in Jacksonville every year. I, I just figured that Jacksonville was giving them so much money. They couldn't afford to take it out of Jackson city come mentally. I don't know. As a coach us, and we're going to get you. We're going to get you back soon when we can we're going to lock you in a shares. So you don't move around during the call, but I, I really appreciate you sharing that information with us. And I think I think you've brought a very cogent argument to this that we have not heard before. Well, you know, I was after that, Greg, for ten years. He's yet to think about everything it would sell a ticket and make money to run your program. You know, they don't have that much problem now financially making money, some of them do, but, you know Evan Evan stadium in, in, in the conference, Alabama. Georgia Auburn Tennessee all these big stadiums when they play our football team. This empty seat. So absolutely. Oh, it's a big problem nowadays. You know that in and but the season ticket sales would go up if they had that game coming into home and home every other year. Promise it would go up and, and see the keep them on all us coast can't get him next year. That, that, as far as you know, they won't say on seats you know, and you buy them every year, and they are not going to give them up one year and can't get them back to next year. So. The. And I got one topic that I would say you hold on one side. We need to go to a break, and we're we will we're gonna talk to you during the break about not moving into here. We're coming right back down. Don't go anywhere coached. I will join us in one second. But pride passion, then patterns re of college football leaves here. The, the Paul finebaum show our four podcast. We continue here in one of the great parts about this show things that happen that aren't seen or heard. And right now, we of whispered, it's like a golf commentator. Pat dies curving on the phone with John Hayden. We're trying to get him to stop bailing hay and looking cows, and come inside. So we can hear him without the wind as all of, you know, I was I was I was talking on my deck last night, the beach when my wife and the wind's, howling. And she said, what's that I wanted to say outside and talk to her, but you can't when you're outside on a cellphone on a windy day or move walking around and, and, and coach doesn't exactly live in a big city he lives in the country. So anyway, this, this negotiation continues. Because he doesn't understand is we all have twenty five minutes left in the show, and he had more things to say Mark, what's the status report? Well, okay, Paul. So we've had a little phone snafu, and if coach is watching coach, we need you to hang up your land line because we accidents hung up on you. And he's not entering a cell phone. He has a landline. Yes. And it sounds great. And we had him on the. Yeah. So I go freely my fault coach. I got I finally got him on the landline. And before I could put him on hold, I have the phone hung up on him. So I'm thinking that, he's, you know, waiting for you to bring him on the air, but he's actually not connected. So it's not up to the landline. Coach guy even know we were on television, so. Yeah. Well, if he's listening to the show. We're going to give it the old college, try here, though, Paul. But you can maybe take another reason why you hung up on coach. I honestly didn't mean to is it completely my fault didn't hit the hole. Okay. We'll go back to the call. Sorry, coach. Right right in the middle of this great interview. We're gonna take a phone call. But this is why. This is live. This show is not scripted. Like all those other shows you watch in the morning, Nick is up next in Clearwater. Go right ahead, Nick. I Paul thanks for taking my call. Thank you, last time last time, we spoke, I was calling about how Avery Johnson should be fired, and it happened in short time thereafter. And so, so I was just in Dallas for the last couple of days on a business trip. And of course I'm in Alabama, but I had the opportunity to talk to jeez Gazans of Texas in and they all told me unequivocally that they were going to be Clemson in Clinton this year. So I felt like I didn't have any that had any doubt which was just mind boggling for me. But, but it is great. I I'm reading a book by Michael J move Ouston can can I see the name of the book? Absolutely. It's these success equation. It's untangling, skill and luck and business sports in investing. It's a phenomenal book. But it made me think about how lucky Clemson has gotten the last couple of years. Now don't confuse that with they didn't have skill. They're the that the luck is kind of like the icing on the cake, and it's a big component of the winning in Georgia hasn't had the luck in this year. I wanted to give you my final four in the playoffs, and then get your take on it. I think Michigan makes it in this year. Finally, I think it's Alabama. I think Georgia goes, and then I think it's Oklahoma clemson's left out. They lose to Texas. And what say you? You let me go let me go over had you had Alabama. Georgia, georgia. Oklahoma. Hama. Who is your forty and Michigan Michigan? I, I think that's a good. I'm getting warmer on Michigan for some reason. Okay. Nick, unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on your view. We have coach die. I, I do think Clemson could be a little bit vulnerable coach guy. I think we have you back, and we are delighted to welcome you back and you, you had more to say, and we want to listen could after get after noon again, I'm probably oldest telephone of, you know, our raised in age party lines. No coach. I remember the party lines. And my question is this, a landline that you're talking about, I'm laying line now but I was on my cell phone before when, when out I when it went out the first time we were you out with the horses or and my woke out on the porch. And sometimes, I guess there's a metal roof, I got us whatever, on my house, but I walk out on the docket the lake and that's where the wind was blowing. Yeah. I heard it. And so anyway, we back together now. Good. Well, well, you said, we, we talk about it for those who just got got got in. We were we talked about the Florida Georgia game. We talked about rod and the service today. You said you had something else. You know, I have I have heard it mentioned about the Georgia Florida game last year. And, and I know we got experts everywhere. But when when coach sabre n- substituted hurt in Abell game against Georgia. And I didn't think about when he did it, but he probably did. But it what, and it was a it was well into the fourth quarter wasn't it. I believe it was. Yes. And, and were they seven pain points now, whether they were fourteen remember the, the kicker missed field mister mister, very he's a great kicker Rodriguez. But he, he missed a the kid the kick would have made it seventeen I believe it was fourteen. Okay. I would he his what I wanted to. Hurt went into ballgame. Right. Well, you know, I didn't think about it before. But when I watched it, I said, you know, I said, that's a guy that's been standing on the sideline for three and a half quarters got every bit of energy. He came to the stadium with. If you remember the drive on the touchdown drive we through through the pass had a he broke containment and it may they may the third down play on hat cut on the sad, man. They kept Dr. And then he comes back and makes a great play on the on the crossing route in the end zone for a touchdown. But he broke containment on it too, right? And then he runs the quarterback Gulf of twenty five or thirty yards but stand. And there and it was because if he if it had been in the first quarter Joe as you would've made plays on all of them probably because of the quickness and, and, and being fresh, but with them being retired football team in the full of quarter against hurt is good athlete. Is he is that was the difference in winning lose football game? I is having that fresh quarterback in the ball game to make plays against tired football team. That's a great point. And people always forget. No matter how good you are. And we saw that the first time around when Alabama lost to Clemson if you play ninety nine plays your defense even though it was the best. I've seen in a long time. He's not going to be able to do the job. No, no. What at the end of the game. Both defendants swift. Right. Exactly. Because clemson's and album both coasts and, and then comes in has had to ball last that was as hell. But now hurt did the same thing against them. Some that day when he when he made that thirty five. Rather put them put on my head at the end. Gene close miss three or four tackles. And are you there you know, coach I wouldn't dare walk away? You think I'm gonna walk away from anything. Either way, if he don't realize I might career began covering coach die. I'm still intimidated by this man. No, you not tell you what I usually a gotten more probably than. Nine nine and nine percent of the your call. You could advocation covering you. Well, you, you, you know, one thing we always had a good time, because you said, what you wanted to say and said it will a lot better than me. But in my own rough way, I said, what I wanted to say we both live happy. Did you ever? Oh me. But you, you got a great show and you mean a lot to the south, they some conference, I and, and, and paying football fans across the nation. Well coach thank you, listen. You know how feel about you. I mean I started my career at covering you and and it. One of these days, we need to tell some of those stories because they're priceless. Oh, we can tell some Paul. Well. I'm talking about the one you could tell you know. You still have a few stories that you, you have to contain. I know I know there's one other thing I wanted to oak, and I've never seen the conference like it is this year. Paul, I've never seen it like it is I've never seen as many proven quarterbacks across the conference. That's inter- it we got into conference. Everybody's got one and we got the two best prospects that I've seen that ever at one time, it open and, and mix and Gatewood. And, and, and, you know, I say with people have proven Alabama, Georgia who whoever can have proven that these freshman quarterbacks can play. Yeah. No, there's no spending a couple of years, getting ready. I mean they just literally throw you. Well, we, we have we have we must do this again. Hope you're and you'll come visit I'll try to get my communications and then by the we're going to have our experts talking to your technical experts. And I think that the simplest way is for you to stay on that land line coach. Yeah. The I don't ever. I never answer it. Oh, no. I, I, I have a landline of our house. And I don't even know the number. You know what I gave it a number while ago? And I still you gave him the right now. A journal is not all Mattel pro. No. I hang up the guess it, but it but you phone back in the hangar win rate. Okay. Yeah. I try to tell my wife, I said you wanted to landlines because of your profession, and we've never used either one. Yeah. Yeah. We got a great show, and we, we, we, we all up more. Oh. Oh, always have fun goes. This is a great time. You're I, I well, we will talk soon and thank you for making time for us, and especially thanks for that call that you, you from outside that we still trying to figure out what you're talking about. Yeah. But that's not unusual for you. Coach. No. I've tried to be misunderstood. I I'm I'm will. Hey, we will see you soon. Thanks. Great to talk to you. One of these days coaching our going to go back because I, I literally began my career covering him. And it was it was a vengeful as he was competing with bear Bryant in his final two years. We're up against a break. I think we have a couple of seconds. Do you know your number do you have a landline? Call me right now. I won't answer. Fried passion, and pageantry of college football leaves Keer, the Paul finebaum show, our four podcast and I enjoy. Oh, I know we've got a number of people that have been holding on for a long time. We've just had two unexpected guests here including coach guy trying to straighten out his party line, or whatever kind of line is so I mean, I don't think we have a lot of time left, but we really do need to end with a quality caller. What's going on your listen? I heard you early you're talking about Joe is going to be going to take over here. CC. It needs. You have. I know you talking about the experts tell you join it's going to be the team that you let me guess I my Griffin has failed ever, right? You to experts those are okay if you have heard it and to. What else our Bama going to win won't hitting about what you're gonna do? George ain't gonna do nothing. We'd have every year when you get around you legend. Why don't you how Bama people have to have to down Georgia? Does that make you feel? John Gibson, down Bama, put George on a pedestal where have led to hear that make y'all clowns thinks that. They won the SEC championship. Jim, what is he gonna tell? They won the Rose Bowl, when's the last time. Nick. Okay. I'd say they played too. Wanna dam national champions, you. So you can't say that say you had to charge it. Ball. Boy. They, they, they lost in overtime in the national championship. What they lost in all our time. The right more. Sure, okay, did you? Did you almost mail your wise? Yes, he is. No. You got the job. So we got the dog we wear, so now figure it out. Okay. Jerome you I am. I continue to be worried about you. You don't have to be about me. We aren't we? What you wanna learn about, and you still haven't gotten over the fact that Clemson put a half one hundred on your kid. Put a half a hundred cruise I'm. They did something nobody else couldn't do. They did something. I'm been doing for the last week yield. So we know how to get won't by twenty points. Do we know how none of that feeling to him? But you know what thanks? We're going to shout aloud at twenty points this year. Drama. I hate to hang up on your actually, I really don't. Podcast available in the.

Choose from over one hundred specialty tools to help you get the job done right deposit required. This is campus conversation now, here's your host, Peterborough. He's welcome in to another edition of campus conversation as we have a little history that was made back in nineteen eighty three on this day and very important to lead off the podcast with this today was the day that plink oh was brought to the prices right game. Just want to make sure that we all just pay. Certain Oman is to the game Pelinka, which is one of the greatest games of ever of all time a prices right history. I'm Peter burns. We had a lot of stuff going on today. Atom written Berg Brad Edwards? Both plink. Oh fans. Adam I was soon you are playing co fan. Yes. Or no, huge Blanco fan. And it seemed like there is a strategy that if you drop the pellet towards the side you'd have a better chance of making it in the middle. But then there's also like the cheap one. If you just if you're all the way over then you're guaranteed to get like a thousand dollars or something. Like that. But you'd have no chance at the at the ten thousand, but you wouldn't get zero either. Am I remembering that, right? Yeah. I think that's fair. I think I think I don't know if there was necessarily like a point go for dummies book Brad Edwards. But that was that was a fair strategy back in the day. I was a big fan of plink. Oh two, but it was hard to beat the mountain climber guy. First of all. Bingo on and then when he falls off the edge. That's tough to be. And it always struck me about how good Bob Barker was as a putting in the in the in the putty was man, he was he I mean, look, no one kid could sink a an eight foot putt with no break better than Bob Barker. He was solid to say the least. All right. We had a lot of stuff to get into. So let's head out of the tunnel. Time to come out of the tunnel on campus conversation well down in Miami. The new boss reminds you a little bit of the old boss. In fact, he used to park in that same parking lot as many as comes in as he head coach of the hurricanes and says, hey, guys, remember everybody. Remember, y'all got Christmas cards for me and my family. Yeah. On the offense aside, you're gone. Sorry. We see just lets everybody go. And Brad, this is I guess no shock when a head coach comes in and cleans house, but the way this whole Miami hurricanes. Head coaching situation has gone with Mark Rick abruptly retiring than many has taking the temple job and now going to Miami and fire and everybody in the offensive side. What do you make of what's happening down in in Coral Gables? Well, I don't think there's any question that was a difficult decision for Manny Diaz to fire a bunch of guys who he's been on the staff with for the last few years, but at the same time, it's very clear. The starting point here for him as you kind of reboot there at the U is to just get back to to ground zero offensively and build back up from there. And I think the best way to do that was just to clear out the whole offense of staff and start back over. And that's you know, that's what he's going to do. And I think even the guys who were on that staff have to understand the logic in doing that. They were just they were abysmal offensively. It wasn't anything that just a tweak here and there was going to solve. I think the the best plan is just to completely start over. And once again, that's what he's done. Adam. Is there any person, and as I look as the university of Tennessee is into their I believe six months part of the process of hiring an offense coordinator is there any is there any direction or or office coordinators that are still out there not necessarily for Miami. But just in general about like these are. Game changing guys for the future of college football. I felt like lane was that guy. And then he started going FAU and getting a head coaching job. And. What what direction these schools go? Now that if they don't even have one it's many years was pretty specific that he had some finalists involved that there was tremendous interest in the offense coordinator job. And you know, this is not surprising. Just two two brads point that the staff was cleaned out on that side. And while we have not heard we haven't heard from Mark richt in in detail. But I think when we do the world be some, you know, reference to the fact that he was going to have to make probably the same change on the offensive side. He just couldn't go forward with that same offensive staff after the struggles, especially the quarterback spot which had been coached by Rick son. And he that was a huge factor in his decision to retire right now. Because he I don't think he wanted to be the one to have to fire his son. So with many D as I think there are available options are still are some for Tennessee as well they've exhausted quite a few of their candidates throughout this process. You Mike, you're such a guy that they talked to several times at Tennessee. He knew he ends up at Ohio State, the Oklahoma state. Oh, see is now on the Buckeye staff is a quarterback coach and passing game coordinator. But his Steve Sarkisian is available was let go with the falcons. He may be the option at Tennessee. I've heard Larry fedora name is involved in Miami. He's one of those three finalists. I think there's some coaches that are still working right now. If you think about it. I mean, Jeff, Scott and Tony Elliott their co coordinators at Clemson. But maybe you give one of them the option to be the man to be the clear one number one play collar. I don't know if that's enough to get them away. But with the right amount of money. Maybe it is. And that could be an option for a school like Miami. It could be option for a school like Oklahoma state. So I there still are quite a few guys out there who may be that. We're not thinking about or that we're thinking not thinking you are great game changing coordinators, but I think that there are still some options available. You know, what's interesting guys to and we're going to break down the national championship game top to bottom and Phil Steele's going to join us here in about twenty minutes here on this podcast. But. You know, we start to see that with the NFL game a lot. I mean, look at cliff Kingsbury and the interest that they have of the Southern Cal offense coordinator, and he meant any coach game by the time that this podcast is out. If he gets the jets or cardinals job, which he's rumored to be interviewing four, I wonder at that point is it harder and harder to land. Some of these sees now because there are going to be not only different college programs, Brad. But now NFL programs that are looking into this and go, you know, what? Why don't why don't we try to bring this in? What if it works for Patrick Mahomes, and it worked for Sean McVeigh and his work in for Lamar Jackson to bring more of a collegiate game to the NFL level. Now, these college programs even have a harder time luring an OC to kind of a fledgling offense. When the NFL sorta get involved as well. Yeah. That makes a lot of sense. You know, it's all supply and demand. Right. And if the demand is increased for some of these guys, which you know as you point out in previous years, especially the guys who run more of the spread systems. There was no demand for them outside of college football. And now you're starting to see more of that. So yeah, there's competition. And you know, what's crazy about that? Is it could actually escalate coordinator salaries, even more the college level? I mean, we've already reached them insane numbers with with guys making in the two million dollar range to be a coordinator. But if the NFL starts upping the ante on their end. And you've got to pay more to be able to hold onto these guys. Keep them from from bolting who knows where the semi it's already just insane on the head coaching side and the coordinator level could eat kit even higher paid than it already. Is we talk about the rich getting richer, and that's one of the concerns. I do have not that Alabama. Clemson four is bad for the game of college football. But I look and overall and think hey, the elite upper class that one percent. Are we going to get to a point where hey, listen, there's only ten schools every year that can afford a two and a half million dollar coordinator, you know, in a five or six seven billion dollar a year head coach, and you're pricing out the middle class of college football. But that's a podcast for a whole complete different discussion. Real quick ceasefire. You're told me the reason why he wanted to go to the NFL back in the day and go coach the Redskins was frankly, college football wasn't paying that much. And he could just get a boondoggle amount of money to go into the NFL and try it. And now, you see Lincoln Riley going. Why would I? Do that. When I've got a great thing. I can make a jillion dollars coaching college football. And this sport that I love, and I can make as just as much if not more and have a whole lot more job security two guys that have a lot of job security. I would say Dabo Sweeney and Nick Sabin atom. We start looking into this matchup cleansing Alabama third time for a title feels like guardian ward of college football. What's the biggest question, Mark? You have going into Monday night. I think it's the one that I came away from last year's matchup, and that was can clemson's offensive line handle Alabama's defensive front because they couldn't last year. They were pushed around in that game. Clemson's defense came to play in the Sugar Bowl and the semi-final last year, but the offensive line gave Kelly Bryant, no chance and Kelly. Bryant wasn't doing a whole lot. Either to be a difference maker in the game. We know the Trevor Lawrence if given time. Time he's going to make plays and I think Oklahoma provided a little bit of a blueprint in the second half for for what clubs and could do but Oklahoma has an elite offense of line. I am still not sold on clemson's offensive line against this Alabama defensive front led by Quin Williams and featuring other guys in there as well. So that if they cannot hold up it's going to be a long night. I think for for Clemson because you just know that Alabama's going to score they're not going to score fifty points. I think clemson's defense was outstanding against Notre Dame and comes into this game with a lot of confidence. But if you can't protect Trevor Lawrence a freshman quarterback in this type of stage against this type of opponent. I I don't think they're gonna win the game. I will second what Adam said there. And here's a little perspective for that. If you look at at Trevor Lawrence and just how impressive he's been as a true freshman, one of the things that jumps out is just how savvy he is at reading a defense, pre snap and ident-. Defying a blitz. He's among other numbers that he has a really good against the blitz that you have completion percentage that that ranks fourteenth nationally for a true freshman have the fourteenth desk. Completion percentage against the blitz is phenomenal. But there's always a bite, right? Here's the but. Against pressure. When he is not blitz. In other words, when you don't necessarily see it coming. That's the thing with the blitz. Like, you, you know, you're going to get pressure. You can see where it's coming from. You have an idea of approximately how long you can hold onto the ball waiting for that receiver to come open. And when you got to get rid of it. The trouble is when you're getting pressure when you don't know that it's coming in those situations. Trevor Lawrence's completion percentage ranks one hundred twelfth in the nation in Alabama as a defense is number one at pressure rate without blitzing, and Quentin Williams is a big reason for that. Look, you mentioned Adam I mean, Oklahoma is probably the best offensive line in college football. And I they creed Humphry is one of the best centers in college football. Even though he's a freshman, Gwen and Williams eight him for lunch. Yeah. Then he was constantly just shooting through their into the backfield. And the only thing that saved them is that Keiler Murray is one of the greatest athletes to ever play. A quarterback in college football, and he was able to use that lateral quickness. A lot of times to avait that rush. Trevor Lawrence is a good athlete. I don't want to suggest that he's not we we we know he can run more than people give him credit for. But when you get that pressure right up the middle. It's right in your face. That's the toughest pressure to dodge. And it's also the most difficult pressure to throw under because you you've got a hand kind of right in your in your line of vision. And so that to me I agree with Adam is the key to this game is Clinton's ability to protect Trevor Lawrence because nothing they did against Notre Dame. Inspired a lot of confidence that they're going to be able to establish the run. I mean outside of that setting was a sixty two yard by by in the second half. They never really got the running game going against the Irish and Alabama will be even tougher to get that done. Again. I think it definitely comes down to Trevor Lawrence and his ability to make plays down the field. If he has time I go back and look at some of the dominant defensive lineman that I've ever had an opportunity to watch. The names that come up with Glenn Dorsey in Dhamma can sue about guys that just disrupted the game. I don't know. If what Quinton Williams has done over the last probably seven weeks of the season that he played that I've ever seen anybody do something along that level. I I mean, I mean, can you guys think of a of a defensive lineman who has changed just the parameter of of the pocket as much as one guy has Quinton Williams? I zu is really the only guy that really came to mind integrate comparison, Peter because and I think if Alabama didn't have to and he didn't have this exciting offense and they had to win games. Like they used to have to win games. We would be talking so much more about Clinton Williams in that same vein of Donald in that conversation that we had during his Heisman year where he was in the in the mix for the Heisman. So I think that's a great point. And this is a guy that came out of nowhere, essentially, we weren't talking about him at all in last year's playoff. It was it was a rate. On davis. And and you other guys that were that were getting the the hype, and then you know, ever since that LSU game. I don't think there's been a defensive player who who's who's performing a higher level. Could certainly debate. Josh Allen Kentucky, and there's a other guys out there. But I I don't think anyone on that side of the ball has been better than Clinton Williams in the second half of the season. It's almost been the equivalent of Dwayne Haskins on the offensive side that if you just gave a high spin for maybe the the second half or the last four or five games, you might go. Join Askins on offense and Clinton Williams on defense. Well, I would imagine both of those aren't going to be too upset about the Heisman because you know, at the end of the day. They're going to be making a whole lot of money. Come in a couple of months when they're going to be probably projected both top five picks bread. Let me ask you when we start looking at Clemson as a whole, I I have said that I think all year long. They were in a perfect spot because they fell underneath the radar like there is dominant. His teams I've ever seen. At zero publicity. And the reason why I said that is because we were all talking about Ojo state, and what was going on with open Meyer Cuyler Murray and Oklahoma or two and offense and Notre Dame making a run this year. But at the same time Clemson was dominant. But I'm not sure how much that they were tested all season long, even even against the team. And I think that was frankly, very good and Notre Dame this year in the semi-final. Is there something to be made about that that Clemson hasn't been kind of quote unquote, battle-tested because he ACC was so weak this year. Yeah. I don't think I could go there as far as their defense in question. Whether their defense is is as good as their numbers indicate because we've seen that defense over the course of several years now, we know how good those guys are. And they are what they are. I mean, so I don't think there's anything about that that might be smoke and mirrors and at the same time on offense. We know that Trevor Lawrence has amazing physical talent. We know how good each yen is. We know how talented as receivers are once again, though, we come back to the offensive line. And here's the big thing because they have not at any point this season based defensive line anywhere close to his good as Alabama's and I think you could say the same thing for Oklahoma going into the semi-final they had not faced defensive front anywhere close to Alabama's and is good as Oklahoma's line. And as good as their whole offense. Is it took them a full quarter to be able to adapt to the difference in that talent level that they were going up against they struggled, obviously, the first three possessions. And then they figured it out. And they never punted again. After that. I think I think there's going to be an acclimation period for Clemson here because this is a different animal that they're facing. And the question is can they afford to struggle early. And the the other part is this. I'm not sure that they will regain their footing the way Okla. Homa did Oklahoma was good enough on offense that once they kind of got used to the speed and the size and everything of Alabama. They were able to start making plays. I don't know that Clemson would ever be able to recover the point. Where all of a sudden they start successfully blocking Alabama. They struggled for four quarters. I talked to people in within the Oklahoma program after that that loss to Alabama in a set. Basically what happened, you know, in the in the guys told me to for guys says we got punched in the mouth and those guys as much as you see Alabama on film. And you're think you're ready for them. I don't I don't think, you know. Now, Clemson, obviously knows they have seen them in years past. So there's a lot of guys that have been back that have been in seen that before. But then again after a month off, it's it's a little different. And that's a situation where it's almost like clemson's, I think in a good spot at least half. Played a game last week to get kind of the rust off a little bit because let's be honest the first quarter for both Notre Dame and Clinton Adam were it was pretty rough. I joked around on Twitter saying we need five quarters for the first semi final game. Because it takes both teams to get a about a full quarter to get the rust off. I think that that actually helps them a little bit more. They had they had to face just know a month off at than in Alabama squad. I think this game we've seen it has just been a better played game Chris per game. And I heard Pat FitzGerald on the radio here in Chicago today talking about how the first game of the season and your bowl game. There's a speed adjustment. That has to be made, and it often leads to that his sloppiness and so two brads point. Yeah, they can't make a comeback like Oklahoma. But they're also not going to be down. I don't think as big and as quickly as Oklahoma was. Yeah. Semi-final because they're too good defensively. And I you guys I was really impressed with Clemson secondary against Notre Dame. I thought Notre Dame would be able to attack them. A little bit more like South Carolina did like Syracuse did at times down the field with their wide receivers you and you and talking to people on the Notre Dame staff. They went for wide to try to create a little bit different look for for in book. And then for Clemson, and it just didn't work, and they never really got into any sort of rhythm. So I I do wonder if we're undervaluing yo we're not undervaluing the defensive line. We know this is one of the great groups of all time at Clemson. But the back end is a group that I had question marks about. And I think that they've at least it gets Notre Dame they answered it. Now, they'll certainly be pushed more by the speed of Alabama's receivers in the scheme and everything that to does in the RPO game. But I think we we we we shouldn't completely shortchange clemson's ability to keep the score you'll low enough so that they can be in this game and the fourth quarter before before we segue into the Alabama offense against the Clemson defense is the last point on the other. Other side of the ball is is that I think it is important the impact that that not having Christian Miller will have on the Alabama defense it or if he's not there, and I'm assuming he won't be because that's a hamstring poll for a guy who speed is very important to the way that he plays. And you're talking about nine days before the game. I just doesn't seem to me that it'd be reasonable for him to be out there. And if he even is for him to be able to play at the same level that we're used to seeing him, but he is in theory their best Pash rusher. And so all these things that we talked about previously with Clemson. Can they block Alabama a little bit of that will be easier for Clemson have Christian? Miller's not out there or if he is out there, but isn't close to a hundred percent. And then then again, it'll probably be Jamie Moseley. The the Richard senior linebacker who will take the place or at least he did in the semi-final game. But that there goes back to your full circle point of Quinton. Adams and Alabama able to get a pass rush without showing a blitz which allows their secondary to sit back a little bit and play a little bit more conservatively because they get that front push now spinning afford like you did Brad and talking to the other side of the ball that Clemson secondary gave up what four hundred and thirty yards passing to Kellen mon- five hundred yards. Jake bentley. But you said look better against the in book. Dexter lawrence. Not being out didn't seem to hurt the team against Notre Dame. Adam how big of the loss is it now against his Alabama offense at has been off the charts. Good so far. Yeah. It's it's bigger lots because of Alabama's run game and the options that they can attack you with at that position. I mean Notre Dame. I think I got up as much as it could out of this particular offense, but they were not deep or explosive at running back like Alabama is. And that's I think we're gonna miss that space eater that Dexter Lawrence gives you in the middle of the line-out. I think Huggins played really well against Notre Dame and certainly could do that again in this game against Alabama. But I just think not having Dexter Lawrence out. There changes a little bit of what Christopher Wilkins can do. Because I think he's going to have to be more it to to the run game, which may be fine. But you certainly want that other guy in there too. To help with with with trying to stop the run because it it just very very difficult with with all those options, plus the quarterback who makes it so difficult to know what he's doing because he was talking to coordinators in the SEC. They just said that the way the two runs the RPO everything is is so late for a defense. There's some little that you can decipher before the snap when he's out there versus other guys where you can kind of see the tells and that's just not president with to. And so it just it's going to be a tremendous loan burden on this Clemson defensive line. But that's the great thing about this game. This is the game. They came back to play. There's no other reason why Kristen Wilkins is still there or Cleveland Farrell is still there they came back to beat Alabama in the national championship game. And so I think we're gonna get, you know, their absolute best effort, which is exciting. Yeah. And I gotta be honest with you. I think in talking to people close to the Alabama program this week that was about the perfect one that could have had against Oklahoma. They got. Off to a quick start. They looked incredibly sloppy. And the reason why I say it was the best way for them Savin had absolute jet fuel to go into the Alabama football visibilities and breakdown tape about some of the breakdowns. They had they had to buy new headsets. I mean, this was coaches like sloppy winds secretly because they're able to go in and take a look at the film and say he could have been so much better. And I think we are up for another one of the ages Brad before we get into having Phil still and get his thoughts on this thing. Where does where does Clemson have the advantage? I because I'm looking at quarterback. I don't know. I don't know if I see one running back, it's Alabama wide receiver. It's alabama. Where is there a position group or theme in this game, which you can definitively say this is where Clemson can make? Well, I think it'd be foolish not to recognize clemson's defensive front even without Dexter Lawrence is is still better than Alabama's offensive line. Or at least I believe it is. But it's not as much better as it is every other game clemson's trotted out there. And I think that's the big difference in. That's whereas Adam says not having Dexter Lawrenson. They're all of a sudden, you know, reduces that level to which Clemson is superior to Alabama upfront, and certainly I would expect Alabama to make its fair share plays a lot more than anyone especially in the running game. You know, a lot more than than anyone has made against Clemson to this point. And that's where I think it is. So significant that Alabama's offense has changed from what it was in recent years. This is the first time under Sabin that Alabama is a pass first team. This is a pass to set up the run team and in the last couple of meetings against Clemson Alabama, especially two years ago. After Bo Scarbrough went out with an injury. Alabama struggled to run they were not able to throw the ball down the field last year. They really weren't able to do either. It was just that their defense played. So well, it wasn't ever an issue, but this year, even if Alabama is not able to run again on Clemson. I don't think it's as big of a problem just because of the strength of that passing game. And and the fact that they are able to not just throw the ball but throw the ball with so many options to so many different parts of the field. It's gonna put a lot more stress on that Clemson defense than anyone else who's played them. So far this season has been able to the only other matchup. I would go to is clemson's wide receivers Alabama their top six defensive backs from from when they met Clemson last year. Five of them are now in the NFL Yanti Thompson, the safety is the only one who's back. So you got five other guys around him much less experience. And while Clemson is very young at receiver. It's not like they haven't experienced advantage. But I think they are so good there. They're going to win more battles in. They're gonna lose going against that secondary. Once again, though, we come back to that question hand, Clemson blocked, Alabama well enough for it to matter, and that is a million dollar question. And also the other thing too, the build of on that the other the other issue that I see that Alabama has that Clemson doesn't especial teams for that is how in advantage. I mean, how can it not be an advantage over Alabama special teams like it's shocking to me? And I think maybe like we always talked about Alabama gets the play like gets all the calls in games. I do firmly believe that that referees are intimidated by Nick Sabin. And I started thinking about that going. We'll move. They don't call it just because it's Nick Sabin on the sideline like that. I know I'm supposed to do my job. But by gosh, I got Nick Sabin yelling at me. That's just human element. I'm gonna get upset. I wonder if that if that affects the Phil goal kicking at Alabama that you're so deathly afraid of missing something for Nick Sabin. It's like a putter knowing you can't miss a three foot or in the you just Yip them all day long. Like that. That's got to be a concern. If this game gets close for for the time. I I've I've heard from as coaches in years now that that's the weakness Clemson to maybe a smaller weakness in Alabama's and you're absolutely right. Alabama's not been. Is exceptional in the kicking game. But I also saw Boston College take one back on Clemson in the game. Those are only points in that in that particular game. So yeah, it'll be interesting to see if it comes down to that. Because is certainly not the strength of either team. I it just hasn't been for whatever reason, I'm sure it drives both coaches a little bit nuts, but is not been an emphasis pointed Clemson either. Even though this run has been so amazing for them. Yeah. Adam if you look at our metrics boat teams are really bad and special and it's surprising, considering how many great athletes, they have certainly for Alabama. The kicking is still a problem. It's been really more an issue with extra points than field goals so far this year. And that's something obviously to keep an eye on and a game that could potentially be really close. But the other thing I'll throw out there for Alabama, which which I think is the worst part of their special teams this year is the punning then we're used to them being one of the best. Four years, but this year, it is horrendous they are dead last in the nation in yards per punt. Now, the only silver lining there is that they only had hunting is bad. Yes. And first of all, yeah, they rarely happen to put in a second. Is that these are so short that they rarely get returned. Right. So the net is still really bad. But it's not as bad as it could be if they were giving up returns, but it is something to keep an eye on just because you would think Alabama is going to be forced to punt more in this game than they have been all season in every time that punter has to try onto the field. I mean most teams you're looking at like maybe a forty yard exchange in the field position. Alabama's lucky if they get thirty. Well, the good news is the punter as well rested. He hasn't been used a lot and that is a credit to Davos waiting for building his program. Exactly. Like Nick saban's program. We're going to be good at every single other position other than special teams in that group. We got Phil Steele coming up momentarily. But right now, it's crunch time. I'm in college football land winning games. This time of year is a tough job one. That's not getting easier anytime soon, but when it comes to tough jobs in the garage, autozone.

This campus conversation, Peter burns, add written Burke, inbred Edward, Phil. How many points did you have in the bowl confidence? Contest that we had. Remember, the mustache was on the line. Yeah. I've been worried the entire bowl season. And they went on get some shaving cream hair, just making sure, but I'm at five hundred seven points. You kidding me? I had five hundred ten unbelievable, and I'm lying to you. I only had four hundred sixty seven so the. I was so quote. You know, what's so funny? As before we had you on the podcast, Brad and atom like the first thing that they want to talk about Alabama. Clemson the first thing they go how many points, did you get is still going to have to shave his mustache. And you should have heard the level of disappointment in their voice in me. Like, I let the entire campus conversation podcast crew down fill by losing to you in the bowl com. It's not the first time. You did Peter time it won't be the last time either. Almost the same as my level of relief theater. America's believe because we want to know you as the moustached one. It's been a hell of a season for good and bad. Let's get into this. I what what really impressed you about the twenty eighteen season. Now's you look at it. As a whole. You know, look at it two thousand eighteen here's my mic takes from it this year. First of all everybody expected Chuck coming into the year. It was pretty much a disappointment. And a lot of my summer radio shows whenever asked me who I think's to be in the title game. I said Alabama. Clemson they were looking for something different in here. It is it turned out to be chock, Alabama, Clemson or their second thing is veteran quarterbacks. Who cares all four playoff teams basically at first year starting quarterbacks even if they had returnees lost their job. So all four guys starting in the playoffs this year, we're in their first roles starter for that team. So I think that shows that you know, teams are capable of replacing starting quarterback something that really hadn't been the case for years. And then just a couple of quick takes from some of the coaches, I talked to Matt rule of Baylor. When I hung up the phone with him. The last thing he said was we're gonna make a bowl game this year. And I was like, yeah. Right. And then they turn out not only to get to a bowl, but to win it. And then say. With Nick relevant. You'll y after going over the team with them and all the defections. They had I expected to losing season eight wins for Nick role of it. So I thought that those are two coaches that I thought that incredible jobs not gonna get a lot of publicity 'cause it's Baylor in why? But they did great. How about Jonathan Taylor? Probably the quietest two thousand yard season anyone's ever had and you speak about turnovers. I have an article in the magazine. But right now will be twenty fifth year turnovers equals turnaround, Georgia Southern sitting NCW record this year. Only five turnovers all year, not coincidentally. They went from ten losses to ten wins. In the final thought everybody talks about expanding the playoffs hack. You know, you look at this year the teams in question, should it. Be Oklahoma Notre Dame, Georgia UCF, Ohio State. Nobody really impressed me a bowl season that teams who wanted to get in God in why have more games this year when it was just going to be Alabama Clemson meeting in the finals anyway. So this year, the BCS probably. Would have been a better methods. Yeah. It's as painful as it is for me to MIT that that's probably true, Phil. I don't love to park questions about. I'm gonna ask you because I want to get here. Perspective on this as someone who watches all the bowl games. Number one. How much do we extrapolate from the bowl performance of a conference to this conference is good or this conference as mediocre or this conference is bad? And then the second part of the question is now that you've seen. I mean, I don't really think you can make judgment on either the ACC or the SEC based on the championship game because these two teams are in a class of their own. But what type of judgments have you made on the conferences if any coming out of the bowl season? Yeah. And atom I do put weight into it each year. And let's face it. You have to wait in the non conference games. You have for waiting in the bulls. It's the only time the conference play each other. So it's something where I think at the end of the season when I'm looking to rate my toughest conference. I probably put about thirty percent of that into how the teams fared and balls, isn't example last year, the big ten did extremely well. In bowl games, the Pac twelve fared miserably in the bowl games. And I think most folks would have had the big ten towards the top and the Pac twelve at the bottom as far as this year coming in the last couple of years, the SEC has been challenged as best conference. But I still think when you look at the overall the non conference records in the during the season, despite the fact that wasn't an overwhelming bowl season for him. I still think the SEC came out number one this year. Phil let me be the negative guy. Here you you mentioned earlier some of the pleasant surprises even some off the radar like Baylor in Hawaii. What teams or just what? Situations in general were most disappointing to you based on preseason expectations. Well, you definitely have to go with a team like, you know, Miami of Florida which was in the top ten at the start of the year. And I think it was so disappointing that, you know, Mark richt just through tolin at the end of the season. Just it it had to be one of those seasons where he came in the year with high expectations and didn't come anywhere near what they thought. They would I think even you know, you take a look at a team like Boise state, for example. They were a team that was expected to be perhaps that challenger for the non BCS. They didn't make it in their lost. A couple of games did finish off the your well. But USC, Florida state all my goodness. You talk about disasters both teams finishing with losing records this year. So I think those teams would be clearly among the biggest disappointments I think to when I add to that list. Brad. I'll be negative Nancy here lane kiffin second year at FAU kinda wanted to see. All right. So he's going to use this naturally. They're going to get you know, eight nine wins. Whereas. Are you going to take off to next year that didn't happen? And also Mississippi State I thought that that team was going to be loaded this year fill in they just struggled. You know? I mean, we were wondering Joe Moorhead was going to bring kind of that trace McSorley magic to Nick FitzGerald, and it never really played in came into fruition. Down in starkville. It didn't happen offense. Defensively they were among the elite defenses in college football this year. But as you talked on if you have one of those elite defenses, you expect a few more wins than what the chief. So I would agree with you there. Peter, I feel let's kind of look at all, you know, last question here as we look at all of bowl season. Now that it's in you've seen pretty much every single play your wrote about it. You've you've breaking it all down. What what do you take away most about who really gained the most? And what what teams look that most impressive spending it into twenty nineteen yen, Dan, taking a look at some of the most impressive performances to me this year. I start off with. The Minnesota golden gophers. You know? I thought the end of the season that went over Wisconsin might have been a barrage. They're taking Georgia Tech Paul Johnson's final game. And yet Minnesota dominated and down to their third string running back basically Muhammad Ebraham he ran for two hundred twenty four yards. So I was very impressed with what Minnesota did not about Dave Aranda the defensive coordinator for LSU. He's missing eat starters. And they held UCF to two hundred and fifty yards which is two hundred ninety five yards below their season. Average in fact, UCF at a ninety three or interception return for a touchdown. Eight zero yard drive after a fumble. Upon for field goal at thirty two year. Touchdown pass with four seconds left in the half. And then trailing by sixteen. Got a touchdown with two twenty four left and remarkable job by Dave Aranda? I was impressed with vivo and Sam Allender both showing some toughness protector and go trying to stop on the Georgia bulldog and Ellen's your, wow that guy is a beast that running at quarterback and and also can throw the football. Well, how about for? Jinyan defense. You talk about spin ahead into next year. Peter Virginia's defense shut out South Carolina for the first time since two thousand and six and this is same South Carolina that put up six hundred yards on Clemson including five hundred ten yards passing. They had twenty nine I down against Clemson for genius held them to twelve Jake. Bentley was just seventeen at thirty nine that game. David Shaw for Stanford. Did it again in the bowl game? He's without Bryce love Trent Irwin cadence. Smith Walker little room and made her big five offense of starters. They total two hundred eight yards. You look at the scoreboard. At the end of the game. Stanford's got the win. It speaks about the head coaching that somebody oppressive individual performances Keyshawn. Bon Vanderbilt even in a losing effort two hundred forty three yards. Jalen Ferguson, Sydney NCWA career sack record with forty five. Also mentioned his teammate Willie Baker at four sex in that game. So very impressive finish to an underrated career down. A lot of folks we're following Jalen for. Jason and his career of Florida international's running back. Anthony Jones hit a gunshot wound. Bist most of the season ninety two yards. Three touchdowns in the bowl. Good to see him back and amazing performance by BYU's. True. Freshman quarterback is Wilson. How about eighteen eighteen for three hundred seventeen yards four touchdowns. He's going to be one of those horse is my contenders. And then the next year running back Trayvon Williams at Texas saying, I'm you know, in the last four games this year, eight hundred twenty nine yards rushing that had him break the AM single season record with seventeen hundred sixty yards this year and finally Kentucky. We talk about all these players missing out on the bowl games. Josh Allen Benny smell both say they're going to the NFL but both opt to play and both played with great passion as they pull the upset of Penn State. I Bulworth since what two thousand eight in the first ten win season since nineteen seventy seven for the Kentucky. Wildcats my man of. Thank you so much. For your time each week here on campus conversation, it has been a blast. And I would imagine you start writing the twenty nineteen Phil still college football preview starting tomorrow. Is that right? No, no. We actually started to get the day after the Sunday after thanksgiving knowing some of the team seasons where complete that's I only have six months to write this thing here, stranded fifty six pages. And you know, this is small and it's grant with information. Yeah. We gotta get an early jump on that. So we're we're full bore into the magazine for next year. The good news is you have a moustache you get to keep during the off season, which keeps your Mo-jo. Phil pre. She it the time but Bess elected in the new year. We'll talk to you soon. Right. All right. Sounds great. Always a lot of fun guys winning games. This time of year is a tough job that doesn't get easier when it comes to tough car repairs. Autozone. Makes it easy with their free loaners tool program to over one hundred specialty tools to help you get the job done. Right. Deposit required. Hashtag walk on. All right. It is time for our favorite part of the podcast in which I shut up and Josh macrey actually asked the question. So Josh take it away. Don't showed up for too long. Peter because the first question is for you comes to us from a preferred walk on drew Allen is at the drew abides. Really interesting question and talking point here drew wants to know, do you think the school would ever consider moving power five conferences if they aren't finding success in their current conference? For example, would a team leave the SEC for the big twelve because they think their path to a conference championship or playoff berth would be made easier by doing so by the way, drew the drew abide should just get a full scholarship. The fact that he's a walk on or even preferred walk on anymore. Like, no, my my friend. You you each and every we have to make a video of me doing some sort of ceremony. And he's at his True Lies that video. That'd be his parents. There of drew Allen brings it and Brad atom. I want to bring you guys in discussion. Because I think it's fascinating. I don't think it ever happened. Simply for the fact of it's always the dollars and sense of what the TV deals are in the. Network deal is pretty solid. Of course, the big twelve has their Longhorn network kind of thorn in their side as far as if they ever really wanted to get a big twelve network going, but we do see an interesting choice with Dana Hoeger Sohn saying, hey, you know, what I've got an opportunity the big twelve in West Virginia. Heck, I was almost there. Now, I'm going to go to a group of five which is clawing forward. I mean that all start with you, it will we ever get to that point to where. I mean, auburn's says, hey, bring me to the much less CC west if not even just a whole different conference. Well, I think auburn's already been lobbying to be in the SEC east that would that'd be just fine with them. And then Missouri goes to the west, and then everything geographically seems to make a little bit more sense in the SEC. But that's that's another story. Look, I don't think you're going to have anybody do with Dana Hoeger Sohn did and go from power five to a group of five. So that he can win at a higher level. And I'm not saying that that's all that was about for. For holson. But I think the bigger question is who would even think about doing this because the the schools that I can I guess that? I come to mind are teams that would basically be going back to conferences that they left. I mean, you're talking about AM or Missouri. Going back to the big twelve Nebraska going back to the big twelve and even Arkansas going back to a lot of their old southwest conference buddies. I'm not sure who else it would make sense. Maybe there'd be a team in the SEC. That's hey, you know, what let me in the coastal, you know, that would that would be attractive to a lot of them. But I just don't see where those invitations would come. And Adam you probably know more about this than I do. But the the grant of rights that so many of these major conferences have agreed to is pretty much a barrier to making a move like this because they would lose so much money off of it. It wouldn't be worth it. And and that's the word Brad. It's money. That's why teams move leagues. It's not for a better competitive situation. I I think it'd be hard to justify to your fans and say, you know, what we just didn't feel like we could get it done in this league. So we're gonna go to this easier league. I think it's always about the money, and the politics and the media rights deals and the agreements and do you have your own network, and how well is your own network? I mean, the Pac twelve is has really struggled right now as a league, and they're they're going to they're selling ten percent. Share in the conference to be are. They got a PR team though now. But, but it's I mean that would be a reason if you're a pack twelve school, and you feel like man this thing is going down. And I don't wanna be here when it hits the bottom of the ocean floor. Then I move conferences to wherever the big twelve. Maybe the big ten I don't know where you're gonna go. If you're on the west coast, but I think that's still a much likelier scenario than moving for competitive reasons ever. It'd be interesting. It really intriguing. Let's say that that out of the box idea of taking on investors worked in all of a sudden the Pac twelve got flush with money, they figured out there network hits in all of a sudden, they're their money their pay out to the schools equal that to the big ten or the SEC for for somehow wouldn't that be intriguing? If some team says, you know what I see the football. That's being played in our conference. Let's see somewhere in the southeast, and I say the type football they're playing in the Pac twelve we could just absolutely kill it out. There. But the reason why they wouldn't do it is because of the travel and the dollars and since, but if the dollars and since got close, it would be a fascinating different world. If if all of a sudden AM was like, yeah, we'll go to the Pac twelve and we'll win seven straight Pac twelve championships in. Oh, by the way, especially if it ends up having a college football playoff that has eight teams in the Pac twelve champion is automatically in as an automatic qualifier. Maybe that would change guys think to the fans matter though, a little bit. I mean, the fans would reveal if the fans matter we wouldn't be having the national championship game in Santa Clara and other conversation. West Virginia fans. I don't I don't know any well that I could ask. But I would imagine the big twelve thing hasn't been a lot of fun for them because it's really too far for them to travel to support their team on the road, very frequently as mostly you. Enjoy your home games. And that's the extent of it. And that's that's basically what it would be for any team. That's currently in another power five league to join the Pac twelve you just you couldn't go to road games, except for when you know, the the rare occasions that you'd save money to do it. But Brad with all of that big twelve money. They're able to keep their head coach. Okay. Never mind that bad bets next next question is for Adam comes to us from dude. He's at brand Dino five says Lincoln Riley has done some great things that oh you and two seasons. When it appears as though he's one of the greatest coaches in the country right now. But didn't Charlie weis also looked like a football God at Notre Dame. He took over a six and sixteen not. That was eleven to the previous year like Lincoln Riley did EM back in my newspaper days guys. I was put on the Notre Dame beat in the August. The twenty five right is to Charlie weis mania was getting going cover that team for the next few years, and it was pretty wild. How he was regarded and how he rose up as an offensive coordinator, just like like Riley has been, but it is just feels different. I think like Lincoln Riley is such a a better fit to build that program long term. But I think he's at an very interesting place in his career Charlie weis was sort of their after two years as well. Can you build the momentum or you're going to backslide and they backslid dramatically in year three? I don't think Oklahoma's going to do that. But I think it's an important moment because Lincoln Riley has to get this defense on track. He's at two Heisman Trophy winning quarterback. He's had two incredible offensive line's great scheme on offense. And where does it get you? You're out in the semi finals both years. So he's a guy that strives to champion. He. Has he has that in them? But he's got to get the defense on track. And and that's why this coordinator higher and the recruiting you'll just talking to people in the big twelve even yesterday. They they don't see Oklahoma with the personnel that they need to compete for a national championship on the defensive side. So it's gonna take a little bit of time. But it has to start happening this year with this coordinator higher or not it's not going to be Charlie weis part too. But it's not going to be Nick Sabin either. It's not gonna be urban Meyer either. If he can't get the defense on track. Would it be almost like a similar situation where Gary Pinkel won the east because the east was down of similar situation? Jim mcelwain win the east because the SEC east was down. And then all of a sudden it got a little bit better and people caught up lake at Riley's. I think brilliant offensively. But now look at how good Tom Herman squad looked in his second year with the recruiting class that he came in especially defensively, I think the defensive they had like six great secondary players that were signed. Of for Tom Herman in. They're only going to get better. Especially after they look the way that they had that win in the sugarbowl. I I find that to be intriguing going forward. Finally, Brad, we have this one for you from hashtag underscore at hashtag underst- to once you to get your nerd on says winning the QBR battle wins eighty five percent of games supposedly statistically, how does that translate for Bama V Clemson four does that really mean that Alabama has an eighty five percent chance of winning? If two was QBR is five points better than Lawrence's in the game. As is. Currently the case you let me start by saying I'm not sure where that stat comes from. I'm not familiar with it. I do know eighty six percent of stats are all made up. I do know that when your quarterback has a certain level of of QBR you should win the game. A, you know, a I guess a compatible amount of the time, but that but that is leaving the door open for other variables such as how the running game goes, especially with the running backs. And then also what your defense doesn't in this particular case while to a has pretty consistently been above Trevor Lawrence and QBR all season. Look Trevor Lawrence is eleventh overall this year, which for true freshman is outstanding for total QBR to is number two to Cuyler Murray not only for this year. But he's number two to collar Murray for the last fifteen years like the only quarterback who's had a better season in the last fifteen years than two of this year is Cuyler Murray this year, so two is at another level of quarterback. Play. And then you have to look at the other side of the ball. And what's interesting is the two best defenses this year at you know, defending quarterbacks total QBR allowed are Clemson and Alabama one too. So you would think that both teams are going to quarterbacks you're going to struggle relative to what they normally would do in a game. And then of course, you bring in that third element of it, which is the running backs while Clemson is obviously very talented at running back is well, I don't know that I like their chances of running. Successfully in this game as much as I do Alabama's even though clemson's defensive front is pretty much impossible to run against for everybody else. I think Alabama maybe has a little bit of an edge in the running game as well. So you put it all together. And yeah, I think I think QBR would lead you to believe Alabama has the edge here because they have the better quarterback. And I'm not sure that Clemson has anything else that so significantly better than Alabama that it would cancel that out fair enough. This was or has been or is the pending on what the proper tenses the last podcast of the week for us. So soak it all in this is your national championship preview. We will return again next Tuesday to recap the national championship, and we will need your walk ons to help us do. So make sure you tweet at us and use the hashtag welcomes the extra point, by the way, a little round of applause for Josh macrey who's having his like MJ flu game. Right. Bring into roll through like that in whenever he did have deposit required on the autozone. Read that was awesome. That was just impressive. As we go into the extra points. We're gonna go around the horn here. Adam you're going to get your chance to go. I I do want you to give a. Give your extra point. But then also give me how you see the college football national championship game playing out Monday night. So let him go ahead go. I sure it will Peter my extra point you you kind of alluded to it at the end of the walk on question. I wanted to talk about Texas because I haven't been on the podcast since Texas is a win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. And to me, they're in some ways the most interesting team coming out of the season, you I'm always hesitant is. I know you guys probably are as well to get too excited or too down based on performance. But I think Texas is really exceleron getting where it can be in the future, and we just talked about Oklahoma. And what's holding them back from being a national champion in Texas plays the way it played against Georgia going forward with those better players that you brought in you mentioned Peter from a recruiting standpoint on the defensive side, especially to replace a group of outstanding players that they will lose on that side from from this year's team. I think tech. Could quickly be closer to winning a national championship. Then Oklahoma has been because I tweeted this during the game. It's very clear to me that the next big twelve team that wins. The national championship has to have a real edge on defend tastic intimidation that it plays with on that side of the ball. And whether Georgia was in, you know, motivated or not Texas defense under Todd Orlando played with intimidation against Georgia. And if they can do that going forward and continuing to get upgrades throughout their roster. I think you can make the case of Texas is going to be in a better position to win a national championship not to make the playoff not just win the big twelve like Oklahoma's done, but Texas will be in a better position to win the national championship then Oklahoma does because they are more of a complete team. And because they they they they have that you especially on the defensive front. I was talking to an assistant in the SEC yesterday who has ties to the big twelve and he said, quote, you're not. To outscore a team to a national championship. They that's a message that should resonate for Lincoln Riley. And it's already resonated for Tom Herman, great extra point. Now. The extra extra point Alabama. Clemson, how do you see your role in Alabama for me? And I it's kind of what we talked about earlier because of their defensive front. I think Clemson will be in the game. I think it'll be a single score game for most of the way. But I think Alabama this arguably is Nick Sabin best team, and they will prevail. Once again back to back national titles Brad Edwards. Your everyone knows is the fourth straight year that Alabama Clemson have played each other in the playoff. And because of that I think a lot of people are short changing how great of a matchup. This is let's start with this. Which is that I think most Alabama fans would tell you. This is the best team that Nick Sabin has had now, obviously, if they don't win the national championship, it won't be remembered that way, but as we sit here today, I believe that that would be the opinion of. I Alabama fans. And I think most Clemson fans would also tell you this is probably their best team as much as they loved to Shawn Watson and his much is I think they would have to acknowledge Trevor Lawrence right now is not quite as good as to Shawn Watson was on those previous national championship teams are the ones that made the national championship game. When you combine what he does with what they are defensively on this team. This is probably their best team as well. And so I think if you're out there, and you're saying, you know, what I don't know if I'm going to watch this game because it's just another Alabama Clemson game round four. What's the big deal? I've seen this before. Well, here's why you should watch. It. We have FBI going back to the two thousand five season. And over that span there have been almost eleven thousand games played between FBI teams in of those nearly eleven thousand games there have been only two in which both teams were considered by. FBI to be more than thirty one points better than average this game coming up on Monday night and the two thousand six Rose Bowl, Texas USC. Well, that's it. And I think that there's been so much made of the rematch here with Alabama. And Clemson that people are losing sight of the fact that these are two elite teams not only as good as these programs have ever had. But when you put them together on the same field. This is one of the greatest matchups. We've had in recent decades, if not in the history of college football is far as not only the talent. But the dominance of two teams throughout the season. And then going head to head against one another at the end, well put with that being said, how do you see it playing out? I'm going album twenty seven seventeen. You know score. Yeah. I mean, I I think I kind of tipped it off. I'm seeing it the same way Adam is as far as some of the advantages that Alabama has let me throw in the FBI. I mean, we know what Vegas says who'd Alabama almost a touchdown favourite FBI sees this is basically a coin flip game. I think I think Alabama is like fifty one fifty two percent something like that. But but I just like the matchups here in Alabama's favors. Not that. I think Alabama is a much better team. It's just that. I think the match ups are favorable to them. And I think especially I like Alabama's chance to keep Clemson much lower on the scoreboard than they've typically been this season. And obviously, I'm picking Clemson to keep Alabama lower on the scoreboard than they've typically been looking forward to seeing that one. Of course, my extra point is a little bit different. We sit here in the first week of January. I looked at my Twitter account a couple of days ago, and I have eighty five thousand tweets now, this goes all the way back since two thousand nine and a lot of times, I'll live tweet games at Peter burns ESPN, and I started getting in over the years. I was sick as a dog guys. And I'm thinking, I didn't pick up my phone. I literally was just trying to stay alive. That's how I was a couple of days. And I realized I didn't miss anything. Like, I didn't miss trolling people on Twitter. I didn't miss, you know, if I said, something witty or funny or. An opinion nobody in life moved on without it. And as I cut it took a step back from Twitter who I think is great for information. I found myself going how many positive things on Twitter. And I believe social media has really. Has got to a tipping point especially in the collegiate game to where it's not good constructive conversation as opposed to it is just people, you know, absolutely fanning, the flames on different things, and I have been guilty of that myself being SEC Homer and honk and I've been called everything underneath the sun. And when I started reviewing it as like, you know, what you're right. And so I'm looking at this is not only a plea or myself because I want you guys to make me be held accountable. Brad atom, Josh and those who listened to campus conversation podcast, but all of college football fans that Twitter can be used as such a great way to kind of have these conversations about sports in have interesting dialogue in connect with fans and learn stuff, but also just be kinder gentler and twenty nineteen. I don't know how long I'll be able to keep it like almost all my New Year's resolutions. I'm sure when. The Alabama game kicks off. I'll probably go back to Twitter and being the most annoying person on Twitter as always, but I just hope that we all can try to be a little bit more positive going forward. And maybe that's a little pollyannaish in combine is. But I think it'd be kind of cool to see the world of college football and the world of sports in general have a kinder gentler Twitter with that being said, I think Alabama transits Clemson thirty five eighty four. But listen my question closer, please. Don't tweet back. God your. That was exactly what I did. Oh, I killed it. You know, is your Sean that was it that was my punchline. No. But I'll joking aside. Like again, I think that we're all very lucky in what we do. And so I'm like why would a throw it away for some stupid tweet. That's going to get me. Six hundred tweets like six hundred re tweets is not the very important in anybody's life. But being respected by people would be one with that being said, you may not respect me because. Yes, Adam as you said SEC SEC SEC, I just have the question marks about the freshman QB versus Quin Williams. And disrupting that line decks Lawrence being out as the difference maker. And I think that Alabama while it didn't look that impressive Oklahoma. I think that had they committed to passing the ball and not Trump playing keep away. They could've put up whatever number. They wanted to. And that's been really the case all season long. Brad. You talked about two of the best teams that we've ever seen at least in football power index numbers. Texas USA was a great one. I expect a great one but Alabama to win thirty. Five twenty four for Josh macrey out of written. Berg Brad Edwards. I am Peter burns be nice on Twitter. And of course, you know, cook. It's the final say.

You'll find inside fear. Joe's on apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome back to the audible, I'm Bruce Feldman joins us. Always by Stewart. Mandel we had a huge week a games, and Stu you're right in the middle of that. Please tell me you had like ten pounds of Gumbo. This week in Baton Rouge. Let me tell you something as exciting as an atmosphere is that game was and how cool was to be there. It was really hard to top the two meals that Andy Staples arranged for us leading into that game. We were staying in New Orleans. I mean, it's just the best. It's the best eating place in America, Louisiana. It really is. Just can't get that kind of food anywhere. We should qualify that part of Louisiana. I haven't been on all of Louisiana. That's correct. Talking about New Orleans Baton Rouge. But yes, I got some good Gumbo. We drove to the game. It was every bit as electric atmosphere as you could have imagined in. Really I always enjoy when it's an open press box provided. It's not thirty degrees because you actually feel like you're at the game. Whereas. For instance, Ohio State. It's like a hermetically sealed press box. You're behind that class. You would have no idea what it's like out there as loud a stadium as I've ever been in until the game starts to get out of hand, obviously. But when it was still early when LSU would have Alabama on third down. You couldn't hear the person, you know, if you try to try to turn and talk to Aaron Suttles who is there next to you couldn't you couldn't hear each other. Does that loud so credit to LSU for bringing the energy that night did not really help matters turns out that the big test was not not that big attest? I'm sure you actually game on TV, and what really stood out to me was that as much as we have made this Alabama season to be all about two. And of course, he had a good game as well. They still do it. Alabama has always done. They just dominate the line of scrimmage on both sides Quinton Williams as great a run of defensive lineman. He's. Had there. I mean, he may be the most unblock -able interior linemen. They've had yet. Yeah. You know, what I reading about this in my columnist week this Alabama's three best players right now to clearly Cornyn Williams and Jerry Judy the receiver. None of those guys even made first second or third team preseason all SEC on the coaches ballot. They're all kind of breakout stars. Now, they're big time recruits, though, they were all brought everybody at alabam pretty much is, you know. So and Quinton Williams. Let's be honest. I mean, he wasn't you know, I mentioned this online. He was a seventeenth rank defensive tackle that year in that crazy two thousand sixteen recruiting class where it was Dexter Lawrence at Oliver Rashawn Gerry. I mean, it's a deep deep group, and obviously, but. You know, he's been with all the talk. We had in the preseason about how great the D lineman are and rightly so, you know, whether it's Nick Bosa the guys are Geoffrey Simmons or the guys Clemson or bunch of the other guys I mentioned he's been the actually the most dominant defensive lineman. He was the most impressive player on the field that night, and you know, I hats off to hats off to Nick Sabin and his staff they are loaded again. And you know, this is the point I made is LSU's actually better this year than they were last year yet this game was more of a was more of a blow out than it has the previous two years. Why think to is the biggest reason why that's changed to as the difference maker there mayor that much better on offense. I mean to me the gap between Alabama LSU has widened this year and the gap between Alabama and everybody else's wide. I this this made come back to to bite me this week. You know who knows what Mississippi State and for autumn never running quarterback. A good divine. It's the week after OSU, which is not an easy thing for them. But I don't see anybody touch in Alabama. I just I just think that much better than everybody else right now. You mean in the SEC, or at all I mean at all, well, I think that they are they are shaping up to be you know, that that team you're talking about, but I wouldn't discount. Clemson. You know, I think people maybe are dismissive of them because the ACC is not very good. But they are just absolutely killing people since Trevor Lawrence took over, you know, they I want to say he trolled to have trolled Louisville. But kind kinda did he's got. He's thrown extra Lawrence in there as a running back and his own son catches a touchdown. You know, it's not it's not a should not be a shocking statement to say that they may be on the same level. They have been for the last four years. But that's it. There's nobody else and you've seen the Vegas theoretical wines. Michigan's. A great season. Michigan's going to be Obama. Notre Dame is not going to beat Alabama. I know the idea of Cuyler Murray going against two is very exciting. But Oklahoma defense that that would be a nightmare. So I'm with you on that what I just wanted to say also about seeing Alabama in person. I mean, I've covered a lot of those Alabama LSU games. The last one I was at it was twenty fifteen when LSU actually came on defeated ranked higher, and they just they just absolutely stuffed Leonard fournette all night dominated that game. While is that that that part of it is the same. But then throw the super explosive offense on top of it to a watching the ball come out of his hand. I mean, I really have never seen a quarterback that the ball comes out of his hand that fast even on his his hey finally had an interception. And it was definitely a mistake to throw it into coverage like that. But he was like forty fifty yards downfield knew it was a rock. So it was like a defacto punt. Honestly, he it was the one, but it was. I mean, there's not many times. I can remember covering a game. Where when the Balkans other quarterback's hand. You're just like, whoa. But he wasn't. It wasn't just him. Also. I mean, don't forget they've Damian Harris they've nausea hairs. They have a gesture upset those receivers they have Jona Williams. Who was the Quinton Williams was the SEC defensive player that we can join a Williams was the offense of player of the week. I know people get sick of hearing about it. But this is what it feels like to me. See if you agree when was the BCS when you were focused more on two teams than four there were a couple years where it just felt like, okay? We know the two teams are they're going to get there. Like USC in Texas and five that's what this feels like to me. Like, I don't know who they're going to play in the semis. But I think we're going to have an Alabama Clemson championship game probably show. Look, I don't want to say, nobody's invincible. There's still college kids you can get deflected passes. Momentum. There's in house. I mean you saw. Yes. Three moment you. Yeah. Yeah. You can get injuries. No doubt. I mean to is injured. He has an injured knee saving as much as saving would like you to believe he doesn't when he ran that forty four yard touchdown. He came up gimpy afterward. He got knocked out of the game for one play on a shot to his lower regions. If you will. And they've had an Jalen out right now. So Mack Jones came in. And it was a disaster. So no, no, let's say it wasn't a disaster would have been a disaster Mack Jones through pick six. Third and something to third and twenty three third and twenty eight the not into that. Thirty not a disaster. But not good. So. Yeah. Injuries can always shake things up. But we hope that doesn't happen. Love to see those teams at full strength. But if somebody can knock off full-strength, Clemson like say, my BC eagles this week in chestnut hill who you mocked me earlier in the season for saying they might use a best offense in college football. I didn't say that. You did. I said after. Where you said the best office. And I was like are you? Hi. You are you are totally mischaracterizing that tech conversation. It was I just said after the Thursday night game might have been their second game that they will be the second best team in the ACC. And guess what they are you were ranting. It was almost like you had like a bunch of empty paint cans near you. You're just like who loading up whatever's in them. Let me let me actually let me let me couch that Syracuse also in the mix for site invest team. Okay. That's telling you how God off all the ACC is this year. Oh, no question. So I don't think we'll get the klumps employ somebody near its level until the playoffs. But you know, they they have outscore their last four Ponant two hundred forty two thirty six. So I don't know what more you'd want them to do again. This isn't a Clinton Cushman. So I'm not I'm not. This is I'm not downplaying Clemson. They're they're really talented there. You know, what the areas where LSU is most efficient LSU really misses. And I said this last week Caleb on chess on that's their best. Patch rusher. Clemson has a bunch of pass rushers and they got they got better guys inside. And they got much better guys outside the part that I think we're clemson's gonna have a problem with with Alabama. I don't want to go too far down this road. Obviously there's a lot of football between on that is. I don't think they're often the lines could be good enough to hold up. I really don't. I mean, I think I think they look I don't want to bring state because this was the other team that a lot of people stinking at one point could could be in the mix here. Ohio State as as better running back to them than LSU states offense a line. We just had a higher state again last weekend against Nebraska and the other hands full their offense aligns not good enough. I mean, I think their offense while we get embarrassed by Alabama. And we start looking at the. Pieces you need. I think the hang with Al Alabama. At least enjoy I'm just Saint hang much less beat them. I think you need the caliber DB's at LSU has. I think you need a d line that Clemson has. And you I don't know who has the old line is going to hold up against that group that has the Ol- line and running backs, maybe Wisconsin. But they don't have anything else to to to stay in the game. I mean, that's what I feel like you're looking at right now. So before the AM L issue game we saw I think the player of the year in college football, West Virginia, Dana Hoeger Sohn going for to think about that decision. In the context of an I wrote about the the big twelve title race Monday morning, and how you end up seeing West Virginia Texas now twice in eight days. But if they lose that game because he goes for to there, I wouldn't say they're out, but the difference between winning and losing that game had a huge factor for both teams in the big twelve title rights and. Didn't even he didn't has tape. They were going for the win. So. He does not care does not chair. I mean, and not to mention the fact that the cameras caught him saying, you know, you wanna go for the win. I forget what exactly what he said. There was a expletive in there. But let's go for the win. What a game for will Greer. What a, you know, if you've forgotten about him by any chance, and the fact that he's in this conversation for top quarterback that throw the thirty three yard touchdown to set up that two point conversion was ridiculous. And I just think for them to go into a West Virginia has has in the past not been able to win those big road games like that under date and holder synagogue, going and beat Texas and do it the way they did. I thought it was really impressive and do their best offense alignment got thrown out of the game. So they could use so good on West Virginia. By the way. This came up a lot in the aftermath of that game. Tom permits comments in the post game about so on that play. You're talking about with with will Greer on the on the two point play he scores and he extends the ball over the goal line. And then Tom was not happy about it. He's and this is what he said. After the game. I thought punting before you cross the goal line that gated a score. I've got a brush up on my rules and get some some questions answered when you look at that as taunting now some of this came up when he got flagged for for horns down. But he's like if we're going to call that opting, we should stop playing college football. It'd be clear he's not talking about the horns down. He's talking about as he was about to go into the end zone. He. Yeah. Yeah. So obviously, it comes office our grapes. I will say that. I have seen them wipe stuff. Like that off the board. I have seen that I've seen if you start celebrating before you have you watched that play again, I want you to the bagel weather that would that. Would you please watch it against I'm not saying, that's right? Podcast and stop. And then because I don't want you to go down this road. No, no, no. I I have seen to not on a two point conversion, I have seen others. I wanna just talk about this point. Obviously, I would not be a fan of them taking that off the board. It's pretty innocent. If you can if you can to no motion game. Phone out from under a goalpost and make a call. You should certainly be able to extend a football. But I have seen guys get not on a two point conversion on a long touch. I've seen touchdowns wiped off the board. I think it would be debatable. Whether this you qualify for that. All that being debatable, Stu watch. It. Please watched it several times. And I don't think it should be called. I'm just saying he it's not debatable. That's my point. It's not. If it had happened, it people would have gone ballistic, and rightfully so. But it has happened before. Now should Tom Herman me raising that right after the game. No that sour grapes. And he's now getting a reputation. It's interesting how the whole image of Tom Herman has changed from the guy at Houston who gave every player a hug and kiss on their way off the bus, and he had a very positive net rating. I would say at that point to now the drew lock backpack thing in the boy. That's right about that. Yeah. I mean, he's he he's not seen as a he seen as kind of one of these villainous figures. Now, I think as a coach I like, Tom, I think he's really really smart. And I think a lot of the stuff that may happen at Houston. You know when you're under this spotlight. It's you get a different level of scrutiny. I think in this case if you watch this play again, which I've now watched like eight times he's at the one yard line. He thrust his arms up, and it's not like this wasn't a case of it's the guy right on his heels. And he's sticking the ball at his face. The horns down thing happened later after it already scored it just like you said, I mean, I think in retrospect, he probably would not have wanted to say that I would think. Yeah. And he is not the first time, you know, he has said things that have just kind of like you've just been like that's going to. That's not that's not gonna play. Well, so, hey, if you win you get to do that. But this was now their third loss of the season. I still. Think going to the season. If you told me, Texas would beat Oklahoma and have a chance to finish with eight or nine wins. That's a good season. But obviously, they they kind of got people's hopes up after the Oklahoma game that they would contend for maybe even a playoff spot for you know, what else will also did it, Stu, it's not just beating Oklahoma. They blew out USC. They beat TCU will turn out US's pretty bad this year, and TCU actually isn't very good. So I think it's kind of temper that I still think this is a really positive season for for taxes on what they're doing there. I think overseeing from Sam etlinger and we've seen a bunch of guys step up. I they lost to a good team. I think I still think West Virginia was the best team in the big twelve. So no shame in that. Can't wait to see what's going to happen in the last three weeks. The to me the big twelve is actually the most interesting conference right now in college football because of November scheduled backloaded as it is while you've got Texas gonna play I with state who is the best defensive team in that league is is. I mean, keep in mind. I was in west Virginia's loss was too. I was state and I want to say they held we'll grew one hundred passing yards. It was what they really did was just from talking to West Virginia. Guys. They outplayed them. They just played harder. There was a few little exit does things, but it was really just the level of effort in physical those guys are and it's a credit to what that Campbell's doing there. So both Iowa State and Texas whoever wins that game still has a shot to get into the big title game, depending on who loses Oklahoma West Virginia. 'cause each of those Texas beat Oklahoma. Obviously what have a tiebreaker there. I was Tapie West Virginia they have a wrecker there. So I agree. I think that'll be a really I I'll say I'm much more curious to see how that plays out than I am to see which of the current three loss. Pac twelve south teams will emerge from that. Log jam before we leave the big twelve. Yeah. There was some news on Sunday on the bottom of the big twelve. And that was that David Beatty was. Informed that he was being let go was these things can often be very awkward in this. What does it got reported by a KU radio voice on Saturday that he was out? Beatty was not informed of that. It was kind of. It was the last one to know. But that was definitely awkward. He was informed by Jeff long, the new AD that he gets to coach the rest of the year. But that was it. There is speculation. And from people I've talked to I think it's real speculation. There's something to it. Jeff long and less miles the old LSU coach go way back to their Michigan days. And I'm told some big KU donors really want less miles. We know he wants to get back into coaching. This is a school that wants hired Charlie weis as disastrous a high-rise you could have as it turned out to be. How do you say less miles would be as a coach in Lawrence, Kansas? I mean, I dismissed it pretty quickly on Twitter. I got back. These people saying, you don't think less, you know, Kansas should be thrilled to get a coach like less miles. So you I will. A little more open. I'll try to be more open minded, you make the case to me. Why would less miles be the right coach for Kansas. I don't think I can make that curious. No, I think they need a coach who's going to have to work his behind off to make Kansas a real player in the in the big twelve you are, you know, when you're at LSU, you got great resources in you're surrounded by a ton of talent who wants to be there where the head coach Kansas, your facilities aren't bad, but you don't have much resource in terms of you don't have a deep recruiting base. And you don't you know, when j David Beatty got there with his big Texas ties old Texas high school coach was add AM, you know, really tied with Texas high school coaches, he wasn't competing the rest of the big twelve for taxes kids. He was he was hoping that Houston and SMU wouldn't go after the kids he wanted. I mean, he was battling with like North Texas. So, you know, I think to his to his credit he made Kansas a lot better than what they were when he got there. But the reality is still going to be reality. Whoever goes in there is going to have to really really hustle and. I don't know if that's less miles at the stage of his career. I really have my doubts on that some of the names that I think people who will think you could be in play would be who they want a guy who's been a head coach before Beatty, obviously, it was a first time head coach usually don't follow up with the same similar profiles, which you got. So Neil Brown. Troy at ease. Rising storm are in the business. We Britain a lot and talked a lot about him. My guess is. He's not going to want that he's going to feel like this is not the next move. I need to take similar Steph. Literal big twelve guy is Oklahoma native learned under Mike Leach done. Really well, North Texas. I think he'd be a really good higher for them. I my guess is he will not want this job, you know. And then maybe like Kenya. Amata Lolo who's at navy? They're having a really bad year. But he does do some different things that could give them could could be virtue at Kansas. You just wonder in. We know he wants a big twelve we know he wants to power five. Job tried to get in on khow. Tried to get on air Zona. It didn't work for a variety of reasons. No, I think if Jeff lawn can get any one of those three guys he should go in that direction. But I don't know if he can get the first to maybe get the third one. But I think the last mile stuff there's some some real things to it. I mean, less miles. I think would set that program back not forward. And that's not to be mean. But like, I mean, it's like you said you need somebody who is going to have the relentless recruiting energy for one. But also, I mean, this is a guy who who ran out his welcome and LSU because he just could not or fuse to modernize his offense. And now you're going into a conference where you can't win the big twelve solely on running the ball and playing defense. I'm not saying you have to have an air raid. Coach you're going to have to be able to to be in high scoring games. I wouldn't mind seeing what some of our colleagues were thrown out there. Our sock channel yesterday that Kansas go triple option. You didn't go to Kenya. Macho Lolo or Willie? He's a really good coach to really he's a mid western guy. Maybe you get to bring Jae Bateman his defense coordinator. Really good. Yeah. Those are that's a good option. I mean, you know, I guess I can on the brain there a little bit just in terms of the academies. But yeah, man, he's not to pick or choose here. But Kennedy muscle built up. Paul johnson. Did army had been so down before Mahnken got their army went into a big twelve you know, power Oklahoma earlier this season and ran eight nine ten minute drives and kept themselves into the game long enough to send it to overtime. You know, I just think you could do this one of two ways you could try to bring in somebody who's going to do it. You know, the same kind of system that all the other big twelve teams have or bringing somebody who will do a complete. Different. And in a way that that system is fundamentally meant to compensate for the fact that you don't have the talent the other teams too. I think it would be a extremely smart move. If you if you can get one of those guys, well, you know, what else is, you know, going back to the last miles thing. It's a little bit intriguing to me is the timing here. So they like David Beatty, you're gonna let them coach the rest of the year. But you wanted to make this move now. Well, less miles hasn't recruited anybody in two years. You know, he's been out early sign. It is coming up fast. It's it's just a month away. You know, if you're going to rip the band aid off right now, do you think you rip the band aid off to go give less miles in the next couple of weeks ago? Headstart gosh, I really hope not for their sake. I mean, it's possible. But I really I really think that'd be making a big mistake. Not Charlie weis level mistake. But big mistake. I mean, are you doing it though? I mean, I know Maryland is out there too. And maybe there's some I don't. I don't think there's a lot of crossover in candidates potentially. But like do you have to make this hire the to make this fire the tiny did and I'm thinking out loud? Because I know how awkward the timing was this weekend because I had made a bunch of calls on it where it gets out. You're making the fire before you've even defer. The guy has been told anything, you know, basically, it's not been cleared to him until the next day. Even though there's been inquiries to such. So I don't know don't you think don't I don't know. This fact, but don't you think Jeff long has probably has mind made up for maybe even the entire season that he's gonna make this change. And what he doesn't want is for him to beat Kansas state this week and suddenly everybody wants them back. So go ahead. I definitely I. Yeah. Look he beat TCU a week ago. I suspect Jeff long had his mind made up after they lost FCS Nichols state in the opener. I really think that that point. It was like I can't have a guy because if you remember like they ended up winning a couple games, they they thumped rockers Iowa, Rutger stinks. But I mean, it's another power five team. They beat somebody to MAC school on the road. It was one of the I think it was either eastern or central Michigan. You know? And I don't know. I mean, they're they're three and six it's not good. But at the same point, you know, if you got if you told me they were going to be foreign foreign aid this year. I'd be like all right. That's real progress there. Oh, they're definitely better than they have been now, they're still bad. So I think he he came in. He's a high profile AD who came in with a mandate to make that program competitive again, they're they're trying to raise money for a very expensive new facility. And so maybe that's part of it. Right. Get a big name like less miles and everybody will throw money down. Whereas if you get a less, let's say Willie Fritz who's a fantastic coach, but not a big name. Then then that might not work as well. I'm just saying don't make long-term decision for your program based on early signing day coming up, you know, it's not the end of the world if you have to wait until February to get a lot of your guys. In fact, is that a is that a commentary is that a pleated Jeff long? I am pleading to Jeff make this mistake. You'll be well, here's here's actually a similar example that might I'm not ready to say for sure yet, but might be playing out right now at your own modder, you know, Miami very excited to get. Segue stew. They lawless say Miami was very excited to get a guy as high profile inexperienced and distinguishes Mark richt and in year two last season Shirley to be paying off, but they are in rough shape in year three. And it's and it's raising the question of well, maybe there's a reason things trailed off at Georgia at the end. And maybe Mark richt is not necessarily the definitive answer for Miami. Well, I'll say on the positive side because they did have a very good season last year, the heat Mark richt has been very good at raising money for them. And doing a lot of things off the field that Blake James AD. I think has to be commended for that higher for what he's done. I think win or lose at this point. Mark richt has succeeded. A lot of ways that Miami needed. Now, as you the long-term guy to lead, I feel like I've. Said this before I don't think Mark wrecked was ever gonna get Miami national title, again, I don't think you know, offense. Really they are really lacking. You know? That's that was the side of the ball. I think was a big concern. And quite honestly, it still is here. Here's how many points. They've scored in the last three weeks stir teen at Virginia fourteen at BC and twelve against Duke. I mean, that's not Alabama. Those are not great teams that that they're they're really struggling with. Right. So that is a big big concern. And they've had issues a quarterback. They have some skill guys. Now they've had some injuries, but they've really struggled on the old line. I don't think Mark richt isn't any jeopardy there? And I don't think it'll be an under jeopardy for a while there. But I think the honeymoon is over there with a fan base because I think they're looking going we need to get a lot better. He's going to need to make some hard decisions on offense. And those kinds of decisions are as I recall Mark really didn't make the decisions. No, you're not trying. Please the fans, but there was a lot of frustration. When Georgia fans with Mark richt on that. Right. And they had better quarterbacks for much of his time. So more talented than what what he's got night right now Miami. I mean, Georgia fans big complaint was that he just wasn't winning the games at the end things have gone stale. And so when they beat Notre Dame in that big primetime game last year when they think the Virginia Tech game was considered to be a pretty big deal. But now not only has he not one the begins. He's well that frankly is not so much the issue right now as it is losing at home to do, you know, losing to Virginia. These this is not what Miami fans expect. Yeah. I think also one thing that's kind of call it a mitigating factor, but Florida state has been on the decline the last few years under JIMBO Fisher, and certainly Willie Tigers at a rough first year. So that's kind of neutralized it. I mean, they almost lost the Florida state as much as struggling as. As the Knowles are. So I think you put that on top of it. It's like, okay. This is your windows. Good florida. Isn't a great team right now. When the big three had an awful weakened, by the way, Florida state gets blown out Miami loses to Duke and Florida gets whipped at home by Mizzou who hadn't won a game yet in the SEC till this weekend stairs. There's basically recruiting climate in the state of south Florida. This is the window is good right now from for would have been good right now at Mont Vami. And yet here they are. They are seventy eighth in the country on oftens seventy eighth. That's that is abysmal. You were behind Kent state North Carolina in Colorado state among others, and Illinois, that's pretty putrid. So what do you think can you dig out from it or not what are we saying? What is dig out me? I mean, I don't know what will happen the rest of the season. But, you know, get through it and get them back to let's say ten. Next year. I don't think. So I think Miami will be pretty good under him. I don't think this is kind of wide and think he was he was the right fit going forward. Like, I said he's done really good things off the field. But I just don't think he's gonna get have Miami as a as a playoff contender. So how long will they give him? I mean, the only issue here to me is they're going to give them a while. They're going to give you just churned through head coaches every four years for a while. Now, you know, if you can't if you can't if you turn around and do that with Mark richt, and that's just that's just it's just process over and over Mark Rick will be the one who decides what he's done there. He's done. He's financially and emotionally made too much investment in Miami for I think the there to Sam forcing them out. I mean, look it. It's silly to to even talk hotseat after last year. But I just think that you know, whatever it's going to be it's going to be Mark Ricks terms. And it's going to be that way for the next five years. I think we made this point of the podcast, Bruce. Without discussing one of the most impressive teams in the country this past week, the Michigan wolverines just absolutely taken it to Penn State. The Michigan revenge Torres become a real a real thing. Thanks to chase one of its who. By the way, I considered to be the most quotable player in college football since cartel Jones. Just every every week. He's got a new one for you. Do you do do you at this point consider it to be? I mean, it's been so long since Michigan has been know-how state and especially in Columbus. It's kind of like, I'll believe it when I see it. But I don't have any Xs and os football reason at this point to Ohio State would be Michigan. Yeah. I I'm with you on that. We just had Ohio State this past weekend. They can throw the ball Dwayne Haskins. We know can do that. They got the run game going against Nebraska. But here's where I think they're going to have a big problem. Their offense align is really really suspect. And I think Don Brown Michigan's defense can take advantage of that. The other thing is still an issue is they give up a lot of big plays. And that's still a problem urban Meyer. Greg Sean told us they miss twenty tackles against Purdue. I felt like they missed more than a handful against Nebraska. I mean, they were Nebraska was loses by five points. There was one play where it could have been game changing play. Where basically the ball goes for JD Spillman hands. It could have been on an eighty yard touchdown. Maybe they go to scores of that happens at any point after the people were looking at Ohio State thinking, okay, they're going to blow out Nebraska, just like they blew out the team. Mm they played after after I will ask you on that bad loss and that didn't happen. I think there's less confidence in Ohio State how much real confidence. Do you think? There is right now in Michigan because at one point this year on there was a lot of people talking about how the Jim Harbaugh honeymoon was over. He was on the hot seat. But people are really frustrated. What do you think is a changed about Michigan's offense in be? I mean, do you feel like the they're just the best day underwhelming lot in the big ten right now. Or do you think there are a real team that could go time with Alabama and Clemson really already discussed out the hanging with Alabama. Clemson say, no, I know. But just doesn't mean they're not, you know, that that's that's more a reflection of Alabama. Clemson. They could very well be one of the four best teams in the country and. First of all we gotta start with the defense. I know that it's not the first time on Brown's had a really good defense. But this one is just doing things to is just it's Penn State's got trace McSorley they've got players on offense. They couldn't do anything. They almost got shut out there. They're embarrassing team. So it starts with that and feeling like well as long as you got that defense, you should probably have a chance against anyone in the country, but ofensive -ly this is looked it up yesterday the most they're they're currently averaging there most yards per play since twenty eleven when we was Denard Robinson in Michigan went to the Sugar Bowl is just feels different. There's the best way. I can put it day or not the team that. The people thought they were after Notre Dame kind of Belaid them, by the way. Can I just raise a subplot here in the in the rush to annoy Michigan people are now acting like not only did that Notre Dame game ever happen with that? It's just a given that if they played again today Michigan would win, and I'm a little perplexed by that. Because it's not like Notre Dame has curled into a ball since then they haven't lost in. I would argue there actually a much better team than they were that day because they weren't playing Ian book, then and they didn't have Dexter Williams. Then like, they're Michigan has gotten a lot better. But so as Notre Dame who are these people, you're pointing out still names. I see it every weekend on Twitter. I see playoff rankings. I see have we not learned from from Lord Gundy about this. Come true. That's true. Well, by the way, by the way to on the Michigan defense statistics or whatever. But so there are allowing three point seven three yards per play. Guess how many years you have to go back to find a defensive play that wall? I also look that up. Now could go ahead and give it to me two thousand eleven Alabama three point three two yard, which was historically dominant defense. I think that defense gave up like eight points a game. But the fact that they're the best team defense since then is amazing. He would sink based Wayne Haskins yet. You would think that somebody would say, okay. Well, that's an indictment a big ten offenses. But as used spit out, they just played trace McSorley. He's really really good now the rest of the quarterbacks they played. I mean, Brian will work is not having a good year. Now played him. It's not a great group. Once once you get past. It's basically Dwayne ask David Platt when there's not much right, right? I think the big ten is a whole has been a whole bunch of disappointments expected Penn State to be better than this you expected Wisconsin to be better than this Michigan special states offense to be a lot better than this share. You know, you're talking about the west where north. Western could be they actually are in the driver's seat to win the division right now and went, oh and three out of conference and loss to Akron and Duke at home. So that that should tell you where things are in the big ten right now. Just a bunch of underachievers. It seems to me in the Michigan has emerged as the class of that conference. But they may have may well have done. So either way by the way as north northwestern die hard. Will you be on the trip this weekend to lovely Iowa City? That's our game this weekend. Tell me you're going dressing me if I'm going. Yes. No. I'm not going to I was hit. He this weekend. I will let you enjoy that. It is actually a great place to attend to football games. This. This is how messed up things are though. I wa is a ten point favorite in that game. They lost a Purdue this past weekend. The third loss of the season. I still think they've got a great defense. They well, I wouldn't say great after the last couple of weeks pretty good defense, but they were ten point favorite at home against north western and. Yet, they could beat northwestern fifty seven nothing, and if north western turns around of beats to pretty bad teams in Minnesota, Illinois, north Western Samoan, Indianapolis, I mean, they'll be five and five if they lose this weekend and still control their destiny in that division. That is kind of nuts. It really I can tell you that my northwestern fans are getting friends are getting pretty they're looking into plights, Indianapolis. So it's it's becoming a real thing. Okay. Maybe night Stanley will will expose them again this week. What he he he? And he north western loss to Notre Dame. The other day, you know, wasn't like a Ababba off, but they lost. And they came out of the day and better position than they were before it started. So it's kind of a charm season. They're having right now. Well term might not be the word when you lose four games. But. Unusual. We're having unusual season. Okay. Do you want to get to the mailbox? I wanna get. Okay. Here we go. We're over people the Email address, they should send. Okay. The the Email address is the audible at gmaiLcom unbelievable. Years of listening to me say this and you still botch. It every time as always you can send your emails to the audible pod gmaiLcom comes close. All right. This one is from Eric w in bozeman, Montana. Hey, stew and Bruce. Would it be more or less controversial? If the playoff committee did not release a weekly ranking and only released one ranking at the end of the year while you know, what Aric it'd be worse for ESPN's TD ratings. So and they're paying a lot of money. Yeah. They've got the show tomorrow Tuesday night in between the champions classic games that always gets like. I don't know million million half yours for for the unveiling of fake ranking. I think it would be I it makes me understand why they do it. That would be so jarring. You know people. It would be interesting for us. We would have to do a lot more guessing and speculating and trying to play it out only to, you know, get learn it that day. I I don't think it's realistic. Now, I wouldn't mind if they didn't do it weekly basketball was the last year the first time they did that or two years ago where they unveiled the top sixteen. The committee basketball committee unveiled their top like a top four seeds in each region. I think last year for something they did that no two years ago top four teams in each region as of a month before selecting Sunday. So the committee wanted to come out this week and say, here's where things stand on November seventh or eighth, and then let it let it ride from there actually think that'd be kind of awesome. Well, I again, I. People. Now, are we look for a reason to be outraged at show often delivers so I think we're just used to it now. And look I needs kind of doing what he SPN wants to do. Absolutely drives the conversation. I was really into it for the first four years, and for some reason this year, I just find it to be very. So far Lee anticlimactic. Yeah. Now, if there's a bunch of upsets this week, and there's more on certainty about how it's going to shape up share a right now, there's a pretty pretty widespread opinion that the four teams would be Alabama or Georgia. If they beat Alabama in the SEC championship game, actually that one would make it more interesting because then you'd have the possibility of Alabama getting back in it. But right now, Alabama Clemson Michigan Notre Dame with Oklahoma kind of sitting there needing somebody to lose. I think that's pretty much the general consensus, but if some upsets happen, then maybe this gets a little more interesting and upsets usually do happen. Hey, speaking of Georgia that we didn't really address the Georgia Kentucky game. The parrot Walton doesn't for us persons knew I suspected get lost in the Bama to a love fest deserve it as it is. But did you guys notice the play of Georgia's offensive line against Kentucky at one point Georgia's running out at true freshman center and right guard and a redshirt freshman, right? Tackle. True, sophomore, left tackle. And yet ran for three hundred and thirty plus yards on Kentucky. I know. We're not going to watch a lot of this game. Let me finish this question. I know George is going to be a heavy dog against Alabama. But Georgia's going to get Ben Cleveland back and now can go almost legit to deepen the offensive line. Should this gave me any hope the dogs can push Bama around push him around. No one thing. I think one area that I give Georgia big advantage over what LSU has I know LSU whip them. But at least in terms of the Bama piece, Georgia's got better running back. I am a big big big Deandra swift fan. He is fun to watch east foot in the ground. And he's like, no other. We saw that against Kentucky. He broke off a huge run. The average ten yards a carry in that game at its you know, Holyfield is a is a punishing rusher. That's a really it's a, you know after having a great one-two-three punch that have a great one two punch again with these two young backs. I dunno Stu, I I don't think I don't think this is the year for them as as parish pointed out. I mean, those are really young good players. They have idea that speaks to how they've you know. We know they've recruited really well, especially in the last couple of years. I cannot be at optimists stick. I think part of the reason for that to Stu is. When you look at just how these teams match up, and I know last year when they had roquan Smith, they gave they gave Alabama obviously all they could handle in that game. But I just think when it comes down to it comes down to to the match up there. I just I don't see them. I just think they know that Jake from can't exploit them when they know what's common for coming for them. I just think that you need like a really really special quarterback. I think right out of beat Alabama or to to to match up with them talent wise toe to toe, and I just don't think Georgia quite has that. So I when you said would Georgia has LSU doesn't I thought you were going to say Jake wrong because realistically, they you can't be album with a quarterback like Joe borough, who's frankly. Average you need a really good quarterback. Jake a really good quarterback. He had a really bad game. Again, FILA to the for the most part for two years now, even really good. But I think the difference is like you said I mean in Georgia had one of the best defense in the country last year. They're still very good. I don't think they're quite that dominant. And so I think they would I don't know. We'll see I think it could be a at least a close a closer game than LSU. But no, I expect Alabama to win it. Now, you mentioned young players the great recruiting. I think Georgia Alabama could become like an actual, you know, back and forth rivalry in the coming years. Just not this year probably not next year until he leaves. He your have to deal with them one more year. The question is from Clint Herod, he gives a biblical restaurants. Clint which went honestly, I desk do off camera to notify may appropriate way. Hey, bruce. How has this noted Notre Dame season change, your thoughts and Brian Kelly? I've noticed a lot of media. Gushing about Harbaugh in this. Michigan revenge tour rightfully so since the wolverines are playing great. But I never thought I would see the day when Notre Dame could be nine to know. It be such a quiet story. Kelly is on the verge of his fourth ten win season in seven years and making the playoff basically making the BCS title game. Again, he's got a good point, Stu, you're the one who did the top twenty coaching list. You know, I never really changed my opinion about Brian Kelly, even while he was getting raked over the coals. I did think he did a very poor job two years ago in the your that they went for eight, but he still to me was one of the upper, you know, I don't know what the exact number would be better coaches in the country and most importantly still the right coach for Notre Dame. And he'd Samson are Notre Dame writer didn't excellent Cuna with him before the season where he admitted that maybe for the first four or five years, he didn't get Notre Dame and everything that was so unique about it. And if any. Maybe as you as you would probably guess, maybe harped on all the reasons why it's harder. They're maybe like lamented those a lot. But now he seems to be really embracing it, and I know that he's going to be judged this season all sway on whether or not they finish the job. He's you know, if you you'd biggest fault you would say over the last few years is teams don't play. Well in November. We'll see I mean, I think they should handle a really bad Florida state team this week. And then you got some tricky games against Syracuse at Yankee Stadium and at USC, by the way. So I'm doing this while you're talking. I assume what you said was coherent. I wasn't paying attention. But I did look back because I need to this top twenty five. Best coaches lists for the athletic back in may. And it's interesting to me because I the thing I remember as you give me a hard time because I think in the wake of that conversation. I had said that I didn't think Klay Hilton was anywhere. Near this top twenty five which you didn't have mom there. But I think that's what came out of it. You know, have the top twenty five. Now, not that. I not have rank Kellyanne. You did not have Brian Kelly. Names on my face. I guess I did some point. Thank you. Clint for for subliminally caller, Stu out. Let's go through some of these names here of people that you have high on let me try to put myself in the head space of preseason. Kelly coming off a season where they kind of blew it at the end. Okay. Go ahead. Mark richt number twelve. Mark was coming off a fantastic season. Who thinks better coach Bryan Keller Margaret Ryan Kelly. Thank you, Mike Gundy, number four team undies, a pretty good coach. I don't he's having a rough season. But I kind of expected that. So that's a yeah. Robert Katrina Louisville. God. Oh, no. The problem with the internet is the internet. Never forgets Gus malzahn, number twenty two. That's an interesting one Gus malzahn wrong on initially. Yeah, he's been doing national title game. He's he was in the SEC championship game last year is he would I say he Brian Kelly is a better coach than him. You know, I think I'd have to say us the one who is the biggest. And I think this is one you've gotten along you have on your list, but this is one at the gotten along for years, and again, it's not it's not fair to me one point because I wrote a actually wrote a book with this guy. Let Mike Leach is going to be running away with coach in your arms. If this keeps up what he's done. There is pretty remarkable the season considering every program dealt with Yemen. Number twenty four museums you much higher. I absolutely think he should be much higher. I leave me much higher than about a dozen guys in front of them. I think she'd be much harder rocky long Gus miles on Dan Mullen. Well, again, here's a majority co two Everest. Here's coach who the last couple years much like Brian Kelly. They last year. You know, would have these great starts, and then and then not be able to close the deal. He's coaching at a place. He's coaching outpost. Whether they have no business being anywhere near the top ten. None them no business being anywhere near the top twenty five by the way. This sure memory, my friend. How many rose bowls did Mike price? Goto? That's not a short memory. That's a long list though. And that would be a that's twenty years ago. I mean, he took over a mess. And so he deserves all the credit in the world. We're getting them to win was Texas Tech anywhere near the top ten team. Oh, mightly going back at Texas tight. Yeah. He not my issue with Mike Leach. And I think he's a good coach. And I certainly I mean he he helped create an offense that now half of college football and even some of the NFL run. So you want to do it based on that? He should definitely be higher than that. He's teams in this season. That hasn't happened yet are so all over the map that logo and beat somebody really good. And then Lou I mean, remember last year they beat USC on a Friday night. Say they turn around and just got smoked at cow stuff like that losing openers to team. But it's not sure. But I mean, it's not shocking that they would lose some of these teams when you look at it. It's not like damn players who had a lot of other options. I mean, they're basically playing with a lot of kids who probably are not as good as some of the guys a Cal. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. We're not talking about USC retirement cow. I get it. You can't tell me Cal have a like some big huge. This is some big suj- talent gap between Cowan Washington state. I think when for most times about the only schools Washington state typically is going to beat on recruiting in that conference is Oregon state and occasionally they'll they'll beat a Utah for a player occasionally Arizona for a player there never been to Washington. They are not the feeling of being in the southern California schools. Never there. You know, they beat Stanford for board either one running back. That's like probably the only time in like twenty years that's going to happen. So that's my point is having a great season. Obviously those rankings change from year to year because college football changes so much from year to year. If you're doing those rankings today he'd be a lot higher. We'll see how. And Brian Kelly is in your top twelve I don't know and have to look through the whole list fifteen at least with with Washington state. This is looking like his a little bit like his two thousand eight season. Right. I mean, he they just keep doing it Gardner Menchu. They could've lost a callous week they low scoring game. He leaves him down the field game winning field goal. You know, the week before Stanford. I'm sorry. Winning touchdown against Cal winning field goal against insert speaking. Dizzy in your Heisman top three. He is fourth. So the answer's no he was in my top three last week this week. I gave that that spot to will Greer. I don't think there's any anything. So it was number two. Calamari? Okay. What are you? I noticed the only person that has I have to Alabama players. I have to a number one. I've garner Minhsiu number two. And this week. I'm quitting Williams. Number three. I I got no problem with that. I am a little surprised that you are not including the guy who is now ahead of two on the national pass officiency lists. And who would set a wreck, glued shatter. Baker mayfield's NCAA record from last week as of today. You know, I had I've had Tam him being. Career and Dwayne Askins all in my top three for a bunch of the season. But in the last couple of weeks, I movement chew up because I just think what he's done on that program. Nobody saw this coming and he's the biggest reason why and I just thought Saturday night the game essentially the most dominant player on field was ninety two. So, you know, we'll be my guess is Connor Murray is going to go to New York for the Heisman Wilbur probably will too. So there's no shame in ten games against each other. Or at least one game against each other at the end of the year. Okay. That's when I want you to answer an interesting one from Jim from bucks county, Pennsylvania. Hey, guys, I have a question about head coach contracts. How has a head coach currently under contract to a school able to break that contract to accept the head coaching vision? Another school before the current contract has expired. I'm curious how this can happen during. So the names I've seen mentioned for the Maryland job. It was a lot of language written in small type in some of these contracts where the way there. Negotiated. There's usually some flexibility in that. So I think by the letter of the law, some of these things I think there's work arounds for them in. This would be how they do in the contracts. I mean agents are very good at creating open pathways to to forgive for upward mobility, quite honestly, anybody can break a contract. It's just that. There are then usually, you know, ramifications. You're if you're under contract, and you broke the contract, you would be liable for damages, but that's why they put the buyouts in there. It's basically a pre-arranged. Okay. If you break this contract, here's what you would damages, and I think at the same point some of these things also they change depending on a date certain coach could be you know, as buyout could be five million dollars on January first on January fifteenth that could be one million dollars or nothing. And so there are certain little timing things maternal. Remember there was a head coach got fired a couple years ago because it just it was when it became. The contract when it became manageable to them, and it was way after people go he safe on my not really safe. I'm trying to remember. I wanna say it was an ACC coach it was like two years ago. But. Anyhow, funny dice got fire away after the thesis. Sonny dykes was a was a different issue to this was somebody on the east coast. I think yeah. I mean, I think that now, of course, these contracts as we've written about Nicole, our wrote about this are getting increasingly one sided agent surges fleecing, they he's in my opinion. And so if you wanna get a guy who's kind of sought after you have to then say, well, if you leave us, you won't OS anything or you always very little so, but if we fire you while you thirteen million dollars. So it's pretty pretty one-sided arrangement. Whereas like, a normal employment contract, the damages would be probably considered to be fairly e either way. The last one is a little unique have any chance you'll go back to Chicago at some point this season. I'm going back there on Thursday. All right on your city are perfectly timed question. Still. Come ruble Henderson from Colorado Springs. I've been reading listening to you both. Two thousand four and I look forward to the audible every week. Thank you. Thank you Ruth. You asked about deep dish pizza suggestions, a friend. Recently turned me onto the best pizza experience. I've ever had in Chicago the pizza pot pie from what you're leaving out the parenthetical you New York snob. The best pizza. Thank you three to disagree, the pizza pot pie from the show took that was to number one you for way for leaving it out. Want me to reread it from the start? Just keep going be known. What you did? I mean, I'm a little upset that you you. But it was right before the big reveal. Okay, go for the best place on earth is defeats up. I guess it's a it's an actual dish the pizza pot pie from the Chicago pizza and oven. Grinder is the stuff of local legend the buildings understated in full of history. The first time I ate there was on a Tuesday night. Fifteen degrees out with a nasty snowstorm. And it was an hour. Wait. I was not disappointed. You can eat some great deep dish in Chicago. Or you're gonna story to rival Andy Staples. And then he included the website video and told you to make sure to have cash because although they do have an ATM in the tiny entry way. So will you be able to find time on your before you make it's Iowa say you stop Chicago pizza and oven. Grinder? I'm gonna look it up. I mean, it's going to be a little tricky. Because or I think by the time I get to Chicago maybe like eleven o'clock at night on on Saturday night. But. I will I will do some research to see if I can make this happen. And if you're ever in the New Orleans area tubes te'o UPS meteorology, please go there. You will not regret it and gosh wasn't aim of that Gumbo place in chef Ron's Gumbo. Stop which is by the way, not far from the airport. So maybe swing by as soon as you pick up your rental car. The next time you're in New Orleans shoutouts, Bruce, I don't know we we probably should be giving this guy way more publicity in way, more praise given the frankly miracle he has done Bill Clark at UAB if you recall UAB shutdown football program for two years Bill Clark stuck with the program. Recruited in entire roster of kids to restart the program took them to a bowl game in the first year back, which considered pretty amazing. But now this year, they are eight and one they are six and conference USA and get this. If I told you who's leading the country in scoring defense. He would probably have said Mitch. Again, or Alabama or comps in it is actually UAB. Why a while that is a good one. Why do you think his name doesn't automatically come up? When people are like Kansas needs a coach or whoever needs it to you for a little while, Stu he he needed to stay in the state of Alabama. Because I think he needed to make a certain number of years, pension wise as a coach, and I think he's got a hit that by now like right now. But I thought there was a time where he needed to stay a few more years. She's a if behooved him to stay few more years. And I think he's probably hit that by now, these young tales of coaches contracts, only, you know. My shoutout is to Andy Isabela. Do you know what that is still? I do not and eels Isabel is a really really fast little receiver from UMass like yourself. He is an Ohio native this past week. He's put a ridiculous numbers early for much of the year but this past weekend, especially so so you mash one a sixty two fifty nine triple overtime game against liberty. And he set the school record for receiving origin game with three hundred in three you'll be reading a little more about India's Abella, hopefully you will in my column on Tuesday. Okay.

Five dollar starter sets right now, only at dollarshaveclub dot com slash Dan. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom my first experience with jewel. I do remember being like this is good. It's it's it's like a cigarette. But not I don't miss smoking at all. Like, I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette. Asher lingering odor. Make the switch and J U L dot com slash sports. Warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine isn't a chemical. Always think is a sports town. All the teams lost this weekend. Do not tell me the dolphins one. I don't wanna hear do not try and correct me all the teams lost that weekend. The dolphins and jets you want to know what the opposite of ram saints looks like the opposite of it is that the same sport. Now, we playing the same sport. Oh, no, no. The patriots do what they did last night at home. And I do wonder about this Mike because I legitimately came in here today saddened by that dolphin game. And having it feel like a loss, and I came in here today saying man, what a sorry time in sports when Brock osweiler's threatening us saying I don't ever intend to give it up this shop he's out here threatening. He's out here threatening the fan base with my mindset is I never intend to give up. This job Brock do not threaten us. I don't wanna watch that Mike that represents that dude represents everything I hated about football before the saints and chiefs and patriots and Rams fixed. It spin it any way that you like damn, but this team has found its identity. And it's whatever that was on Sunday. I mean for better for worse. This is the grinded out two and a half yards at dolphins. Identity is really going to be an inch better than the jets and the bills you watch us Franko or twenty carries fifty s he is going to break all of the rushing records in two thousand and forty three. One and a half yards at a time. Tell me he won't I defy you. I defy you to injure Frank gore to tell me that he will age. Frank gore will be doing that game. We'll put it on the poll will Frank Gorby twenty carries for fifty yards in his eighties. What happened to Kenyan Drake? He got like six touches yesterday. What's going on here? You thought he was back for a little bit. And then Adam gates was like he's fast. He's you don't like him that fast. We like a guy who's going to be good blocking blocking blitzes and I- Kiko. Alonzo was good and coverage yesterday for you. That's a victory mean everybody was good covered. Yesterday. Weren't they? I mean, overshot Jones wasn't it. Touche touche. So what's happening is are so negative. It was a win. They one. That's good. They won. Why can't we be positive? They won four interceptions. That's good. All right. I was at a bar watching the game. And they had the sound on. They should've just had like violin music playing the whole time instead of the play by play. It was the saddest thing ever. It's like the dolphins are putting again up. Now. The jets are putting I was at a place that gave away jello shots every time. The dolphins did anything I to Gela shots. It's it's so sad, man. And it's not an instance purgatory where you know, the columnists are still writing seven years in still argue, but do you stick with ten hill? It's been a column we've been writing for seven years. I was thinking about this yesterday. Is this the worst like major sports city that there is just because there's no actual good teams. Everyone's just average like every year since LeBron left. Everyone's just been average. Well, I mean, look at Sacramento, I mean, what are you talking about? But like a team a city that has four sports, right? Like, everyone has a good team or a decent funny. I was thinking the exact same thing is Billy so much. So that I looked it up. The only one that's close right now is Detroit. No, guys, New York is pretty close. The exist. But they got twice as many bad team. But they have the Yankees. They have the Yankee exactly Troy is is one. They don't really have anything going good right now. But they have the jets and the giants shouldn't that offset? And you're sitting here saying they've got the Yankees the Red Sox just won the World Series. They add twenty twenty one twenty seven World Series that like relaxed New York, I'm not going to hear you crying about how tough it is to be in New York sports fan. Just shut up ready Detroit. Detroit doesn't have it. Great. Now. I mean, the pistons a plan better, right? Miami Heat are going to have a tough time of those stones. Well, this is what I'm going to tell you about your Miami Heat. I don't know that I can say much more about it than this. If your best player is going to be Richardson, you were going to lose games like that at Atlanta, and you're gonna lose it home in Sacramento, and he will have career highs. And that's the team that you're going to be you'll be worse than you were last year. If he is your best player in the year. That's like very similar two years prior the only change in this team is that they've made Josh Richardson, the number one option, and I am not like the result. You that's what you're going to get what you're going to get is you've gotten Atlanta, you're going to get what you got. He's gonna get his you're going to get what you got in Sacramento. But oh God that that does not. I just don't know what you do there. Mike. I don't know what you do there. Because you can't have weighed keep being your lead guy. I'd keep going with drug drug itches. I think now is like the downturn in his career is a really good contract that they signed going drug at shoe, but it was supposed to be that kind of contract that was attractive to other teams and said, we're just gonna play this. Out which is fine. But you know, he's up there. I mean, he was a guy that was speedy. So maybe you can get a little craftier around man bad hurt that way, I thought we couldn't complain about this year because it was Sweet Sixteen in goodbye. And blah, blosser we're supposed to be happy with that. We lost the hawks old on the second. Can we just examine for a second? One might just did their Mike's hope for the rest of the heat season is Gordon drug. It's getting craftier. That's no good. Look. No, no, you guys cannot complain. Because when the season started, you said, Dwayne Wade's farewell would be enough this year, and you were happy with that. And we're like, let's not going to be very good. No, no, no. But we get to every day. We get to think. The way he life for even though you love you play for two other teams you when you got a chance to come back, and you chose to go to Cleveland anyways. Thank you. No, no. That's enough for us. And now we're like eight games in. And it's stories changing our sad of the heat or not good. Yeah. What do you want from me? You're right on the end. Yeah. It stinks. You were. Right. Billy. This is not fun. Make Dwayne Wade. The number one option that'd be more fun than Josh Richardson. Why don't they make them the number one option? They're gonna be bad. Just have them out. There have mother forty minutes a game. Why not we haven't gotten to the portion of the show where might get actually depressed about his team. I've been carrying that with me Saturday. Yeah, I've been carrying it with me. I can't even look my wife in face. I haven't made eye contact with anybody eastern Saturday night tweeted, how great the atmosphere was it was it was it was insane. It was insane. It had no reason to be the way that it was that I filled with people hoping like you. Well, everyone was super drunk. That's the only explanation. They had to have been on stuff everyone stayed there. There's so large pockets of that Sadia m- that get drenched in a rainstorm. Now, there's more pockets that keep dry, and it was pretty electric despite that game starting the worst possible way who worst possible way and then in the second half or Stolz our souls were stolen by just this offense of style that's been working for thirty years up until the last month. Apparently, so Margaret campy saying that any my favorite part of the game was in the first quarter. When it was pouring rain. There was a proposal on the TV is literally drenching them in in rain. And they're sitting there going through with this like can we push it back? Yeah. It's the first quarter. Like, can we push this back? It's pouring. Now, we deserve better. We deserve better. We're born deserving better from this program. I'm not saying fire. Mark richt. That's insane. But I answering fire Mark richt the offense coordinator you have to you have to. Team is loaded team is loaded. Mccown keep getting told that I keep getting told that I'm really torn on this because I see that. Everyone's arguing about it. And what the thing that I'm tired of it. It's it's a bit amazing things happening in sports. What happened yesterday with Michael Thomas, and that whole Joe horn cellphone thing, I feel like I'm ten I feel like I'm stuck in ten years ago where people having the same arguments they were having ten years ago when Joe horn was actually the one who did the thing and people reacted exactly the way. Troy Aikman did ten years later. And here we are Mike I've been hearing the complaints about offensive scheme since Gary Stevens was the offense coordinator at the university of Miami. Everyone thinks that it's about the play calling. And I just have a hard time believing that anyone would get in charge of that offense. And it would do anything more than twelve points against Duke there. They have one they have one of the biggest quarterback problems. I've seen. Cross division one yet and it's been mismanaged because both quarterbacks have regressed since the season started their confidence is clearly shot. But they're also simply not good. I mean, it's hard to crush Rick for the job. He's done with a quarterback this year and not look at last year and sale. Holy cow. Mark richt. That was amazing. Because is this even the same guy? Mike only because the quarterbacks are also bad if Florida and Florida state this Miami not have the worst quarterback in the state like you've got a team Miami. All the local teams lost USF loss. Miami loss. I F A. You couldn't lose because they were playing one of them one of them had what the hell's that supposed to mean they have a better record than your school over there. Dan. I mean style having I you sample, which is making things work. All right. You can keep laughing at all you want the best quarterback in the state. You lose forty nine to fourteen yet. But here's what happened with that game. I'll tell you exactly what having that at that game. Because I was there is what happened FAU scored. Then F I you had a forty. Yard touchdown in the end that the guy just dropped simply dropped in his hand. Then they overcame that. They scored what I believe it was a touchdown. And I was very confused why they were going for it. I guess they Mark them down. So then the next play on the two yard line. Not good. Then FAU we stopped them. Oh my God. What a hit they laid out on the guy, but then it was targeting. So then that advance that drive then there was more drops. Then they tried to get a little cute and he tried to do a fake field goal where the holder toss it over his head to the kicker wide open. I love that run it in except he dropped the ball. So that didn't that didn't quite work out the way it was supposed to and we didn't get points there. And you kind of have to stop the run they gave up like four hundred rushing yards staff. They you. But there are still down by fourteen. I ended up leaving that game was just your run of the mill close forty nine to fourteen loss. What is going on in this state F? I you might have the best quarterback in the state in both college and pro McKenzie Milton exists everybody, but we stick. We stink football. It's UCF. And f I you have the two best quarterbacks in the state, both knowledge and prochet money. Not pro think about it. Not Jameis Winston Ryan Patrick lane. It's amazing. Nobody it is state stink. We stink in football. The entire states thinks that football put money on the dolphins. And I'm telling you right now. Totally different. Yeah. Jayme money put him on the dolphins. That's amazing. I mean, we are a sewer for quarterbacks. The peninsula of Florida doesn't have a quarterback when the the big argument last week was genus Winston of Ryan Fitzpatrick, and we can't play Jaren Williams because he doesn't know this playbook. However, the playbook seems to be four plays long. So I'm really worried about Jaren will Mike what do you do with the fact okay because I understand the frustrations with the play calling because they do look very predictable. But they are doing that. Because they've got quarterbacks who are shot yet. No, they're bad quarterbacks and the offense of line has been inconsistent. They're lacking in confidence and honestly, continuity. But yeah, I could say definitively. They've got the talent everywhere in the skill position. Four shark. Four five five star four star that backfield four Sar force our five star in lingered. They have a bunch of talent in terms of recruiting. And this is the only way to do it. Yeah. You can pointed and say, maybe they're not that good. You have very precious little proof that they are. But I'm telling you in terms of the people that do this for living. They have plenty of offense of talent. They just don't have the most important position, which is not helping that offense of line, and certainly not helping the play calling. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom my first experience with jewel. I do remember being like this good. It's it's it's like a cigarette. But not I don't miss smoking at all. Like, I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette. Asher lingering odor. Make the switch and J U L dot com slash sports. Warning. This product contains nicotine nicotine is Nick this chemical donlevatar. I was wearing these pants. They're like, I don't know if they're navy or if they're gray. And we like me and my wife were debating about it. You can't tell whether they're grey or navy. So I decided to call them gravy. Well. Good gravy. Stugatz. Also, you guys see Austin. Also, really, so so there's an also after that are you just tossing random thoughts and us that we can't do anything. Well, before he said to me life should have Disney buses, and then I quickly realized that life does have they're just called city buses. This is our show with stugotz on the ticket. Hey, if you're on fire for the university of Miami program, and how could you not be super excited come out and join us in the heart of winwood Jay Wakefield Saturday night because why on earth would they give us a primetime game again? University of Miami football team. Georgia Tech, Miami a four and a half point dog. And we've got a rerelease of gear. Most put it on the poll, it is people's hype release party what? United man to exciting offenses. Yeah. It's going to be electric. It's basically going to be saints Rams come out. Join the show this. It's actually pretty cool because we all get to drink and watch this offense. And that's the only way to cope and we get to do something on a weekend a Saturday night. No less in would now, Billy. I know I said last week that I didn't want to go. If there was a knife thing, but because I had plans, but I will be there to support because I'm really worried that the wind has been taken out of the sales just given the performance of this football team. So I'll be there you can count on me. I'll have to be there, and you can count on me. I will be there. I'll be there to Billy. I'm excited for you. Man. Roy you coming babies, welcome. I don't know. I don't. But there is an outside area, and they'll be TV's because we're expecting thousands and thousands to descend upon the heart of winwood Ajay Wakefield with us, and we actually hope to see you there come out and support the show because we know it's a depressing time if you follow the university of Miami. Let's let's get through this together. Let's get through this together. Have you seen guys that Mark richt is noncommittal about announcing who his starter is at Georgia says he's going to let practice dictate who the quarterback is. He should say no starter Georgia starting quarterback. What did I say Georgia? Okay. Sorry. Mark richt connection. No. I definitely don't wanna play Georgia Georgia Tech. So the question is, well, it's either going to be Rosiere Perry. Right. Because Darren Williams can't really play this game. If you wanna keep his red shirt, and I have a whole take on that. If you sit Jaren Williams in this game because you're you wanna make sure that you get that red shirt on them, you have huge problems because Jaren Williams needs to be the kind of player that isn't going to see through his time here at the university of Miami. You should not be worried about putting a Richard on. That is such an antiquated way of thinking Jim Williams should have been in there sooner. If he's out there against Georgia Tech. Would you want some credit for writing out with Nicosea Perry? Kate Kate Weldon Kate will then it's coming back from a four game suspension. You don't want. I'm not going to report what that suspension was for just you don't want you you you can't trust him. You can't trust Perry. Wait, what was it for you? You know, what it was for? I know I know what all of these four. Oh, I mean, we guess if we guess what you say, yes. No, seven eight six four five six thousand three hundred. If you wanna get don't call. I'm not playing that game. But you don't trust him. Jerry Williams has to be the guy. Jaren Williams flatly has to be the guy because university of Miami, maybe they've pivoted, but they only were going after this kid that I think his name is Michael Johnson junior that committed to Oregon, and they didn't put any other eggs in that basket and that quarterback basket. So it needs to be Darren Williams who was the best quarterback during spring. However, the concern was that he didn't know the playbook and intern journ Williams is a little worse now in the fall he's gotten out of shape. He's gotten a little depressed knowing that became beat these guys out. And you're always worried about those kids transferring So Jerry Williams needs to be out there. I demand it Mark richt. I'm not worried about Jaren Williams redshirt if you were worried about his red shirt, and he's not the answer because he's the kind of quarterback that's going to stick it through his entire eligibility. No, he needs to be the kind of guy that is out of here soon as he can get outta here. So he can go to the NFL, but this season is kind of over. So you can make the argument that. You're wasting a red shirt for a game that doesn't really cares about wasting a redshirt, Chris that is such an old logic. You need this guy to play right away. He needs to be good enough to go right to the NFL. He needs to be that kind of good. But it is a win the season is over. If you've already set them out this long. What's the point of? Well, they're actually knack nucle- still in it. I'm not going to it's over and made a lot of help. They need a lot of help. But if you actually look at the scenario, it's not totally implausible, but I don't want even want to get to that game though. Like, even if we will I don't wanna be so so we can play Clemson wolf, and you would probably go to that game. So it'd be worse for you. Are you going to go to to the game? I really had a good time in Charlotte. Are you gonna go bowl game? If they go. No, I'm going to be actually no because well, actually, I might because their bowl games going to be what December eighteenth at this point. Wh when is this Shreveport independence bowl, I'm going to the UK for ten days on Christmas night? And I'm doing a pilgrimage through all the song. Stadiums in in the UK for the rising. Now, I'm going up there with Chris winning him and a high school friend just broS, dude. That sounds terrible. I have to be honest with you two weeks. It's going around with Tennessee winning. I mean, you're not into you're not into soccer. But no, we've secured tickets to Manchester City Liverpool, which is the biggest game of the season gonna see Chelsea twice once on the road once at home going Old Trafford Manchester United born myth Craven Cottage Fulham Huddersfield a lot of a lot of big games. Did your wife get out of this? She's not happy that she's not going. I can't oh you told her. She's not allowed to get. Yeah. Told her no. This is something that I've always wanted to do with huge. It's something that I wanted to do as I wanna geek out over soccer and do a guys trip and see the UK in a way that I haven't seen it. I've seen it with my wife before. Now, I just want to crawl through pubs and immerse myself in soccer culture. I've never been to the UK and in the wintertime, so I'm looking forward to this sounds fun to me, Billy nothing. Sounds fun to you though ability. It's very rare that someone says something, and you're like that sounds awesome. I can't wait to do that. It's not your stocks suffer. Jay Wakefield on Saturday. Yeah. That's gonna be fun. It will be we'll make the most of it journ Williams better start. I'll tell you right now. Because if I see you trot out rosier. You were Chris, you're Perry guy, weren't you? That was are you still a pair of guy? I mean, I'm not giving up on them forever. But it's he's he's just he doesn't look it out there, man. I've got I've given up on him. He he looks the exact same way. I saw a quote, it was I laughed out loud. At the quote, where he said these mistakes aren't showing up in practice. That is legitimately funny because yes, they are. Yes, they are. In fact, I was riding home because my throat was on fire and the university of Miami offense wasn't to put it. Bluntly. And I was listening to Josie Jackie and on Bailey junior on the broadcast. And they said we're seeing everything we've seen in practice from cozy Perry. What was what was his final sets? If you have thirty five yards passing. He had a worse. Completion percentage, the Melik rosier. I can't believe we're here. Again, the us back. All right. The u is back to being this punchline. So what was last year an aberration? Clearly, dude, you realize where we were a year ago this week we had just been. In Virginia Tech, and we were. Few days away from college game day descending upon Miami. And Miami put on the boots to Notre Dame a year ago, we're going to the grove. We were going to the grove the grove was back. We were everyone was saying they don't stand a chance like this. God Marty Smith or this fraud, and we beat up Notre Dame that was a year ago. Were fraud. But they beat up. How do they get good recruits? Honestly, like how does UM get good recruits moving forward because it just seems like what is the seller? They ha they actually had a kid you commit and go to Ohio State boys that guy in a rude awakening in for rude awakening when urban Meyer retires at the end of the season you've seen the season before right from urban Meyer. Yeah. This ends in him like claiming health issue. We'll just you commit again, Billy. We still recruits because we're gonna cooler you Saturday's look, I'm doing right now to you. It's cool. Want to come to it? No. But honestly, what's I mean aside from being in Miami? What's the drawing point because they don't have like an on campus stadium? We have to drive like twenty data. They did just add the the Mark rectum the practice the practice facility. But I feel like all the good schools have stuff like that. Like what what makes you Florida? Florida's say doesn't. They are actually getting it now circus school. Yeah. Yeah. They do have a circus school. So there's that there's I mean that I'm surprised they don't get more people. If we're doing a swap Ford, if we're doing a swap board circus school absolutely goes on there as a strength at Penn State. Would they have like an ice cream? Right. Yeah. What do we have? Well, we have a beautiful campus. Great weather, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And we have Mark richt. Yeah. Mark, correct. So all the all the first couple ones, I get so jealous watching Georgia. And I get so jealous watching jure Georgia alumni in the NFL. See like, I think like what fifteen percent of the best running backs in the league right now. We're recruited by Margaret. You see Mark recruits everywhere, you see this Georgia team. That's a lot of Mark recruits. I don't understand what's happened down. Here. He doesn't understand he's speechless in his press conferences Bill. You're an F I. You guy how many seven and fives. Does he have left in him? I hope this is the last bit of it really it needs to be. We can't survive another one his job is safe. There isn't anybody calling. Well, there's plenty of people calling for his job. But he he's absolutely safe as the head coach. But he needs to be something that he hasn't been with this offense in recent history. And that's self aware. He needs a new offense coordinator take that off his plate. Billy seem a little down is I think I noted it's the Marlins homerun sculpture, I'm down. You just seem a little down today. Is it the sculpture being gone? I mean, I Don I didn't think I was down coming in. I guess I'm not good at reading my attitude because like I was fine with the dolphins game yesterday because I fell asleep when I was six to three and I woke up and I saw the interception. And then I was good. Like, I saw the pick six and I'm like that. I saw what happened this game. You guys good with that? So everything. Yeah. It was a nice little nice little map. We got an extra hour which totally threw me off. I had the war set asleep. Yeah. I woke up at five fifty and it couldn't go back to sleep after that. And then I was all off the rest of the day, and that was a whole thing. And then the Marlins got rid of the homerun sculpture that that you're right. The kind of Amy set and then today, I see that they're teasing. They're putting out like little things saying hashtag ARCO Lotus, and it's like the colors of the logo that they said was not their logo which leads me to believe that that first logo that leaked was their logo the colors. It's like that blue. And then I'm still unclear if it's like a pink or red it looks more like red. But I don't know read works here on a sucks, right? I mean, I don't know the red works down here actually, ROY have red. Hat's your voice, reminding me. Me of something. We there is something to look forward to plus that my big split in Finland for your Florida Panthers. Huge win huge win sweet Lewis back Roberto Longo. That's right. And they didn't allow go in the second period, which was a comeback win. We said something positive and pain wagons back. Yeah. I I'm going to be honest. I'm probably leaving early today. Sick day. Yeah. This is really difficult for me. I was so hyped on this Miami. Len did you do that Instagram where you showed your throat? It did look really have you got to a dog writer. No, I everyone tells me I have strep, but I'm not getting the body aches or fever associated with strap on getting is every time. I swallow feels like I'm swallowing a razor blade. You know, there's doctors now that you do that like over the phone, you FaceTime with the doctor really there's some places that that's like the medical coverage is like you can call in with his doctor if you have issues, and then the doctor has used you over the phone. I don't see how you would get anything out of that. I had a horrible night's sleep. All I was doing was coughing. There's starting to be blood in when I sneeze. Yeah. No. That's I should check this out. Yeah. Yeah. She usually a bad thing. I think it's blood. It's not a lot of blood. It's just it's not like a guy coughs into a napkin, and you know, he's going to die later in the movie type of blood. This is really like hints of red whereas out of your mouth or your. Both. It's coming out of everywhere. Glad you're here. Sinus infection may enjoy me. Why am because I'm not entirely sure. I'll be here for Jay Wakefield in the heart of winwood people's hype and release party. Yeah. I'll be there. Yeah. And I'll be there up bring the energy health permitting. Do we have to watch the UM game? We're going to ask for them to just put on. I'm gonna bring old VHS of Sabato. He gone laying BC. That's like, ooh. The only favored by seventeen and adagio had that extra day. No, he didn't he had that extra day to prepare for Virginia Tech. And you saw what happened you think they have ESPN? Plus there can watch F A you who do they play. They play hold on. They just had it here UTSA or when I'm excited man, one of those schools that has like six letters in its acronym. But the islanders on Saturday. Well, there you go that's come out and just straight with with us. There's no way people shows his face anymore. People can nachos face anymore people's predictable. But I would say it's it's not likely that people still on the UN ban cannot show his face in this town ever again. I think we're done we're done guys people's die sounded like a damn fool at the beginning of the season sounded like a damn yesterday. When I when I was saying we can dig this. This wasn't so bad. No. This is horrible lost will best. We just replay shows that L before that LSU game. I mean, Billy you actually were the one keeping us keeping his grounded. But man, Mike, and I sounded like. You can leave yourself out of this. I appreciate you wanting to tether yourself to me. But no, I was a I was a lunatic. Am I wrong, by the way? Did did the field. Not look. Okay. The dolphins game yesterday. And know that was like a big thing. Gore Finkel was all over this. He was all he was all sorts of p owed at the at the shade the national media throwing it. This seems fine to me. It's sleep. It was fantastic the turf over there. You realize how much it rained on Saturday. Everyone was shading low. It's flooding and not how could it not a lot of rain. Why can't they coordinate that better by the way like the giants and the jets play in the same stadium and they just alternate weeks. Why can't they do the same thing with college? Yeah. Well, they they should when you have a natural grass surface. You don't even need to do that at MetLife. Yeah. Well because they have two weeks. But I'm saying if you're able to have two teams that play on the same day. Why can't you have two teams of plan different days and coordinator better? I guess 'cause you has their scheduled years at advance. Yeah. They do that. They did a great job though. Here we go. We're trying to be positive. Let's take your phone calls seven eight six four five six four three guess the suspension. I'm not telling you why Kate Weldon was suspended just know that you can't trust them ever, and we can commiserate together. And we'll see you Saturday now, seven o'clock. Well, so that's me. I don't even know what that is. Get people fake people own out. Fico people if people. Two z's. I think that sounded like figs as as a boy Gavin loved playing football. He lived in briefed it wanted to go when he'd spent hours upon hours just practicing his touchdown dances at one day while we're getting fitted for bifocals, he realized he was never much good at throwing or running or catching nor even kicking. Yeah. Gavin's chances of playing pro football. We're looking like fourth and long very long, but he did hear how could save money on car insurance. So he switched and save. Then he did kind of a touchdown. At least he was still good that donlevatar. Ninety s shorts. Chris has some nineties as short just wearing shorts. You have some VAR nineties and sure they're not cargoes. Explain why are they ninety seven backpack. Material. I have to remind myself that I'm actually wearing pants because my two thousand eighteen s shorts. Are so thin end up. Let me look at your shorts. Get those thin as shorts. When. Stugatz. Philly modern-day shorts. Right. They're they're blue shorts. Quicksilver? They're like the ones that can get wet those. He's got shorts your shorts your ninety s short-sea money aren't amphibious, those sorts wet. It would take two hours. Oh, yeah. Please everyone with modern shorts dry thirty minutes out of here with your ninety s shorts. This is Dr show with the stugatz on the ticket here. Moen I have spent the break making fun of Mike Ryan who still as an adult a grown man allegedly mature if you throw a you in his face, and then turn it upside down he will want to fight you so triggered it's the most triggered I get. I feel you have anger issues. Like, how the things happen to you that you still wanna fight people in covering when I think that I deemed like that appropriate from my anger to just lash out. All I do is I see red, and I climb over three rows and it gives some eighteen year old kid the middle finger and weird. Like, I feel like there's nothing in my life. That makes me want to punch someone how does your wife receive you climbing over three rows because some eighteen year old has taken a you hand signal turned it upside down and now the executive producer of the Dan lebatardshow. It's to got is climbing over three. Roads with the middle finger extended just so he could get it closer to his fate. You don't you? Don't disrespect this you, Dan, we came up with that hand signal. I mean was fifteen years ago to time-honored tradition, and you don't my wife is pretty embarrassed there. But my wife is actually invested in the university of Miami. She's actually kind of crazy about them on the first Duke touchdown. The guy was scored in a whole new up and he broke over his knee. No, I really angry. Yeah. We'll see with me. You would have been there too. Yeah. That's when I climbed over three rose by my middle finger that really made me angry guy. Put it on the poll you getting rationally angry when someone puts the U upside down because North Carolina a couple of years ago. I'm so I will never forgive those people you're fighting with Duke and North Carolina. Not exactly. In football. We're fighting with them in football side existence. Man. I mean, the university of Miami. Is duke. We're supposed basketball we're supposed to be Duke basketball. And we'd I'd always said we we didn't loose. It took though when never going to give them the satisfaction where this crappy ACC team Virginia's storm the field like seven times since we joined the conflict of people still storm the field beating you after question after play. Gonna come. It's not it really isn't costing your school hundred thousand dollars, and we do that. Anyway, why are you doing that? This is stupid. But we we we just never lost Duke. It took even a miraculous the Lord the good Lord. Wouldn't let us lose a couple of years ago at Duke with that miraculously totally legal kick return. You're just not supposed to lose to Duke and football and we lost by eight points. And that dude broke the you over his knee symbolically and quite literally. You seem like a defeated person. Like, he. Do you have any reason to live wasn't wasn't even a year ago wasn't even a year ago? It seems like forever ago, they had the longest winning streak in the country. They had the longest winning streak in the country. College game day was down here. I might liver will never recover from Notre Dame week. I was going to Charlotte for the ACC championship game. We were going to be the number one team in the nation. If we just be pit that wasn't a year ago. Guys wasn't a year ago. And it seems like forever ago, you remember the good times. Remember college game news. It'd be happy. I do I thank God for that. Because otherwise might life is an adult around this program would be nothing, but pressing nothing but cooled in Shannon this year. This pathetic. Wow. He's actually spitting on the studios. We do it. You know, what you all should be Madison Lawrence app is that kind of mad Warren Sapp is on Twitter saying the u is dead. He's got a he's got a towel over his head Warren Sapp, it's gone. The other way on the university of Miami played there. He has like a reason to care the turnover chain doesn't have magic anymore. The very next play DJ Dallas who's like an old school. Cain fumbles for the second time in that game. By the way, they shouldn't be playing in those conditions. It's the same asterisk Astra. Saw they gave an account and count my personal record book. How was it? Not raining like in the parking lot. Do you care so much? What do I care so much because when I was on. Like, you do whatever when I was growing up. This program was my LeBron's Miami Heat before LeBron's Miami Heat. Everybody hated them. It was a galvanizing thing. It brought together a multicultural city. They were the coolest guys and they were bad ass. They would beat everybody up. Want wanna lose to Duke? They were poking Tigers at LSU, man. They would they would scare the holy hell out of the Oklahoma Sooners. It was so long ago seventeen years ago came, but I remember some of that. And then they were bad, but they were bad for like three years. And then they were doing the same bleep again Washington will never play us again because they were scared because of that revenge game, I went to the OB was air at the OB, Mike, but that's been fifteen or Jinya beat you at the obedience closed the place forty-nine nothing like since then they haven't been any good except for that one blip on the schedule as you is so magical, and it was the same guys. It was the same guys endorses patrolling the FAU sidelights NFL. Close. Yeah. It's actually kind of cool. I saw I haven't I was like, well, he's so taller. Obey the offense. Coordinator better be the offense coordinator, someone better be the offense report is today. Debu guys news. Good news. But we fixed the biggest problem spot on this roster. I am happy to announce university. Miami has quarterback offered a full scholarship to appoint. Nice. Yes. Thank you. An australian. Jeff eagles Zach vehicles punt much. I was no he doesn't like fourth and twelve and thirteen a thirty one yard touchdown four thousand hours the backbreaker that was that one. I've been really I've been really depressed lately on my timeline. I got excited when I saw that report that we were bringing in a punter because what was the excite like put put me shit. I'm like, oh, we're not going to get twenty five yards, a punt this awesome. And don't click the link if you want to remain excited because the dude I have ridges like thirty five yards upon. What can I ask a question? What does your wife do like, there's no way? She cares. Nearly as much about any. She travels with me all these games. That's crazy for the universal part of the worst. And for better or worse. Like, she's going with you on these trips really wrong here, man, you know, how sports fan I'm works. People care about teams. Yeah. You seem baffled by the whole process. Well because like this guy this game happened two days ago. And it's like he hasn't been eating for two days. And it's just it's just the football. Game. I'm coughing a blood. Yeah. That's that's that's too much tearing to that point. So I wonder if your wife is like sitting around, and she's like, no, no the game will no that's the only thing into the only thing that she's into she's sexy as all hell when she's at a K. But I don't think today, she spitting blood. No. Well, maybe I don't know. How contagious what I have is. But. Boy, your wife does not love the you the way that you that you might. She loves you the way that you love the you. You're over here telling me, why should I care? But I love this thing. Let me love it. Okay. But you hate it look at you know, you're killing yourself. I love it. I love eight the level. Could it turn this single round up at your chair could've turn this thing? In this thing around you guys. It's funny always doing his own show. It's going to be fixed. It's going to be fixed. Knicks here it's going to be fixed on Saturday when she Williams starts you watch. It was fixed last year though, it was broke again. Fix pit this week. It was pretty overrated. It's supposed to be the greatest sports weekend. Yeah. What are the games? I think lived up to the high end after all that air Rogers versus Tom Brady and that game kind of stunk. Yeah. Fourth quarter, the only one that was good was the Rams and things. Yeah. That was good. That was fun sports. I I was like Allison asked me. Do you want any guess on Monday? I was like guest no way. We're gonna have so much to talk about games real duds. Now. I may call pop Ryan are you do you think you know, what I'd love to see what I miss. I miss ESPN classic. So that I could like watch Dan Fouts are Marino. Even and see how much less accurate they are. Then today's quarterbacks because you're what you're watching in the league right now the teams that are playing the opposite of what it is that the jets and the dolphins are playing when you're watching that ram saints game the precision of those quarterbacks makes it so that it's almost impossible to stop anybody. I've watched an entire Patrick Mahomes game. He's good. He's good. They're unstoppable tight. He is so good. What how are you? How do you? Stop him throwing the ball wherever he'd like to Kelsey. How do you stop? It. Can't get so much separation from their receivers tyreek hill is always open. And if they want to change up and go a little slower, they bring in Sammy Watkins, it's insane. Kareem hunt has all this space to run even came Irving who I called the worst football player in the league a few years ago. It's working out just fine on that offensive line for Kansas City. You're begging for a kick. You're begging can't believe Andy Reid kicks. He's so stupid that he kicked should never everyone should be playing lane. Kiffin everyone should be playing fourth and twelve bleep it. I'm not punt. It's crazy. And he was getting them. How do you keep? That's why you should do it. Because you're going to get some of them like you're going to that. You shouldn't do it unfortunate twelve but you should be doing it on short. There was a sequence in which the Browns punted after they had scored on the first drive. So I was like okay with loss loss. You can't survive. You have to score every time link was you'll go rain. He wasn't kicking field goals. He was still going for six four and seven. Let me explain to you. What crack he plays real life? Like I play Madden that saints Rams game. Was that game was such crack that it was tied fourteen fourteen the saints fumbled in their own territory. And I'm like game over thought it was like I was thought it was like watching one of those is ner tennis serves games like they're just gonna keep going touchdown for touchdown until the end. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom my first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance good. It's it's it's like a cigarette.

"Stugatz here day one for a new employee instead of joining in productively they face it confusing, disjointed process and piles of paper forms with Kronos. You can automate the entire on boarding process, create a better experience for employees and freeing you to focus on the human part of your job. HR payroll, talent, and timekeeping in one unified system. All with a proven implementation approach and simplified transparent pricing, learn more Kronos dot com. Slash onboard in Kronos workforce innovation that works football happened. Yeah. Football happened against atop to defense in the NFL Khalil Mack neutralize. Let's see. Did he play? I didn't even see him. It was double team. The entire game in a worked to get hurt a little bit actually. What a big day for the shipping containers predictions, Chris Cody firmly in the camp of fast Albert show out buddy. You celebrate your day and Pilly kill big day for the Frank gore Pro Bowl prediction. I mean, I wasn't exactly going out on the limb. It's like Tom Brady is going to be great this year. Like it's a thing. You see Frank gore and we spent, you know, a whole two hours or whatever was one day I training cabinet. I said, you know what this year Frank or big year will not really a bold prediction when you when you say one of the greatest running backs in NFL history assure fire hall of famers going to have a good season. It was like insider trading almost who was so obvious. I was just privy to seeing it in person, you know? Yeah, I just knew that this was going to happen, so the running game gets on track. Kenyan Drake is solo frustrating in the running game. However, he has his moment of redemption because the his fumble at the towards the end of the game does not cost the Miami Dolphins, Miami Dolphins somehow put up five hundred forty one yards, but that's almost two hundred more yards on the previous high. This season. They did all of this with Brock Osweiler against top to defense in the league. The pairs of led the league in sacks. And through five quarters yesterday they got zero exactly zero. That secondary looked awfully slow against Miami and all of a sudden you compare the stats of Jarvis Landry in Cleveland to those of Albert Wilson down here Miami and you have replaced Jarvis Landry's production with a form more explosive type of player. Do we officially have a quarterback competition now? I mean, last week, Brooklyn grade on the one like drive that he was in on. It looks great. This week. I think we have a quarterback competition. You're ready to call it. I'm ready to say. I'm not going to say the Brock is taken the job from tannahill, but we at the very least have a competition. You think? Do you think what might happen is tannehill now gets a little bit of extra time to heal that injury because Brock's been so affective, listen, Brock, Osweiler. It's played well against the patriots and one of. If not the best defenses in the league, Miami did some different things in this game. Tunsil was healthy and and you saw when he wasn't healthy against Cincinnati, the cohesiveness on that offense of line went away. The Miami Dolphins were double teaming, Khalil Mack all game long when it was in two people on the offense of Ayden double-teaming. They did a great job of using backs and tight ends. John James, I thought had an outstanding game despite even he admitted that he had a lot of help, but the bears couldn't do anything with Khalil. Mack being doubled. Usually someone else on the opposite side of the line will be able to take advantage of that. No, not today and the dolphins wide receivers made that secondary look silly at times. They took some bad angles, but my favorite part of the game was when that safety for version Kaga. We saw this twice in in the NFL because there was a patriots safety that gave up on trying to chase styrene hill to where they just stop. They jog for second and they realize I am not catching this guy. It's crazy to think that the chiefs let Albert Wilson go because I wanted to get faster at wide receiver because Sammy Watkins, indeed, faster. I don't know of post injuries, but he has a faster forty time. Then Albert. Well, you talk about football happening. Are the dolphins the most football of all the teams in the league man, the Bengals feel like they could win against anybody. They can lose against anybody. Nobody saw that high scoring game happening. How did this team win this fashion against this defense with that quarterback we, we were, we were hard pressed to find anyway because it's not like Trubisky was bad, doesn't wanna trubisky's better games as a pro. He had that bad pick that immediately became a point. He had that turnover in the red zone. But outside of that he was making pretty good throws at the Chicago offense plays like that. They should win a game, especially against Miami. Miami was going no huddle, I guess, taking advantage of the temperature down here. Football. What else? It bay race to bears leads in the fourth quarter. Brock osweiler's this comeback, king Brock us what is happening at not at this happen. Adam gates was thrilled after the game. Oh, let's play this sound because speaking to Billy's point about there, possibly being quarterback controversy, not possibly. It's happening. It's happening. So this is how joyous Adam gay sounded after the game. He where he was met with just a bunch of questions about starting quarterback. Hippo LARs something like that they can talk. I don't know. I don't sit there and ask him all these questions and I just know the guy couldn't go to. All right. Go ask him tardy, answering this question about this guy. I got it, but you know what? I'm I'm over me and him. We, we know that he's not ready right now. Okay. Details of it. We'll keep that tell us you guys don't need to know that Lucy frustrated with their. Is it just the media or is there something going on here like when underneath does he like mad at tannehill? Here's a quarterback controversy and tannehill guy, and he's tired of the controversial at tannehill sustain this injury against Oakland. Yeah. So that might explain some of the performances that we saw since then against New England and against Cincinnati, which were too dreadful performances. So maybe we should extend some benefit of the doubt to Ryan tannehill as far as explaining away those performances. This diversities are better than explaining away the doubt. We'll just controversies more fun Brock osweiler's clearly. Awesome. Is the guy that had a big time contract in the NFL he earned that he helped Denver when a Super Bowl ring, they don't win that ring without Brock Osweiler. Remember, I saw him walking in the tunnel after the game, like with his arm around hill. He's so tall man, like he's so much taller than Daniel. I mean, I know that he's wearing like his cleats. So he's a little. Taller because of that. He's also six, seven. But he looked like someone when that was like hugging kid, almost like, all right, man. Thanks so much for helping me out a bit of an awkward situation for for Tena hill. I thought he was overly a few seven is praise for the team, taking a social media, great win. He was really hyped on the sideline. You could be genuinely happy I, he mates, but this is starting to get a little uncomfortable without well, Brock Osweiler played against that team. It's not getting uncomfortable. It's tannehill team just we can give them a couple of weeks now. That's all I want saw this town rally around, Matt Moore. I know it's, this is a different animal. It's what Brock Osweiler does. He's he looks the part Osweiler does not do this Brock Osweiler. You cannot say, this is what Brock Osweiler does give up five hundred and forty one yards of offense. I mean, our Wilson did a lot of that he was tossing like asses and then he was running for seventy. Albert Wilson is incredible the way that they're using him. He looks so damn fast. They're using them. They're just giving him the ball. Yeah, it's not really special. The running game. Got back on track. Thanks to Frank gore. And are dolphin fans, have you fallen for it again? That Drake fumble trick. Fumble was terrible. It wasn't even hit that hard. You can see in the slow motion, replay, how it happened, but damn, and then the broadcasters that he is getting all, but his feelings that was funny. I was a hell of a wine. That was a hell of a line. What a weird weekend in south Florida sports. I have a question about the dolphins before we move on, because I sense for moving on who's Dwayne Wade doing like, not that he was going to the game bears clothes. Why was he wearing a denim jacket in one hundred and two degree tapa -ture like that's commitment to fashion that I don't think you need. I thought he was wearing the jacket, keep in mind at the rock. Now they have that roof and he was in a bit of a shaded area, but it's still muggy, hard. Brock stadium are Brock stadium, and I thought he was wearing the jacket to sort of conceal his bare shirt. He didn't want to be all out there with his bare shirt in Miami announcer media. He was making it pretty well. No. And that he was a bears fan. And if you're a fan of Wayne, you know that. But to me, it seemed as though he was sort of trying to cloak, did you think people are going to boo him? Like he's lending, Buddha, Miami, it's not a stadium full of means no one's gonna booing way, or was he sitting he was standing on at the end zone. They have a bar set up in the end zone and he and you donnas were out there. Gabby union was out there. They took in one of the more exciting NFL games. Part of me wanted you guys who experience tie barred me wanted you guys feel the thrill of what was an NFL tie. I was we were all yesterday is house for brunch, watching the game, and there was two takeaways one. The thing that Chris did of heartbreak stadium, I found out from talking to his wife that he does that all day every day. He just tries to do things like that word play, and it seems to really, really annoy her. So like every time he do it, I just turn over and I'm like, does he do this all the time? So like ten minutes later, did it again. And we just like shared a look like, oh my God. I can't believe that this is like I am. I am lamb. And then another thing you just said that you. Wanted to experience a tie. So like I was sitting next to my fiance on the couch now is elbowing. I'm like, it'd be so funny if he misses here and we watched a tiny. I didn't drive all the way because Israel is really far like I didn't drive all the way over here to watch at tie. It was a time. It was funny watching football guys like Mike had so much energy. And then as soon as the Brown started getting their butts whipped, I don't know if it was that of the most as you just you shut off was that, and I was sitting on an audience just constantly re positioning myself. Why were you sitting there? Because there was room on the couch next to Chris, a lot of pillows, and I don't want to have very comfortable too. I noticed you took off your shoes at some point which seem like a strange other person with your show. Bill Bill, I realize I had socks on, and I realized that is e and is he's friends, didn't have their shoes. They live like is he lives, but they're familiar with the rules of the house and we're new. And I felt like is he didn't wanna tell us take our shoes off. He was wearing shoes. I saw him wearing sandals line of sandals along the wall, very, or. I sort of caught a vibe. I asked him, hey, should I take my shoes off? And is me a response kinda like, oh, no, you can leave him on. But I knew in his heart hearts. He wanted me to take my shoes off. I'm going to text them and tell them to call issue because I thought it was kinda strange that you're the only one with your shoes out. Good was food. I'm not just saying like the Bill does. He's one hell of a code. Dan, those pancakes did the eating house, captain crunch pancakes, the contents milk syrup man. That was really good. I'm still feeling it by the way. I took a huge nap afterwards and it was. So I feel with flowing through my veins right now is condensed milk. I am so lethargic, ROY, you were at the game yesterday. You were covering this in the locker room there. Controversy and the bears. Oh, you're in the pairs locker room talking about mad. Were they. Oh mad. Were they? Were they tired doing nine have were they tired? Because they also looked like they had condensed milk flowing through their veins. They did not want to blame the heat, but it was the heat. It was hard. It was a heat. I saw that they had the very heavy play of wearing their orange alternates on the road because they didn't want to wear the dark jerseys because he opposing sideline is not covered. It's almost as if Hardrock stadium did that on purpose. Genius. Let's Khalil Mack injured was I read about that? Yeah, ain't got injured during the game. You got injured. He was totally invisible. Yeah, but I don't wanna put his his performance or lack thereof on an injury. I'm sure helped matters, but the dolphins absolutely neutralize. The most feared defensive player in the league credit to them because this offense of line was an absolute disaster last week and we couldn't talk ourselves into how they could do this and not only did they do it in pass blocking. They didn't run blocking to Frank gore monster game. They didn't know huddle. They looked so much more. Condition than the Chicago Bears. This was an insanely good game, fast paced, huge plays. When you get in these monster plays for Mitchell Trubisky and Brock Osweiler this the NFL is so great this year it is so back it is. So back you couple that with last night's game last night's one of the greatest regular season games. I think we've ever seen you watch this ridiculous game between the chiefs and patriots. Having said all that are we think that oftens are any like, do we their fraudulent right? That good man, you get you to win against the Chicago Bears with your backup quarterback and put it up, that kind of offense you can't help get excited is is this offense going to have the sort of variance where they can have five hundred forty one yards against the Chicago Bears and then late in the very next week against the Troy. Possibly that's football. We're going to be talking about some south Florida sports coming up, not just Miami Dolphins. We'll take your calls if you want to weigh in on the weekend, that was seventy six, four, five, six, four, eight, three, seven. It looks. Like Jimmy Butler is going to be saying, put with the Minnesota Timberwolves and you want to talk about quarterback controversies and you have to talk about the university of Miami back after the break support for the Dale lebatardshow podcast, comes friends at rocket mortgage by Quicken Loans.

I'm Dan laboratory. I went to the university of Miami and I got in and tried to ruin the program and the school. What's my show with my father around just so people like me. They dislike us because they are. Is that better bro? This is Dr show with the stugatz on the ticket. Okay, we covered the good. Great actually from the south Florida sports weekend dolphins, incredible win. We'll take your calls on that and other things at seventy six, four, five, six, four, eight, three, seven peers. Jimmy Butler is going to stay with the Minnesota Timberwolves for at least the sort of the regular season. That's awkward. We'll get into that later, but the time has come. We have to address what the hell happened on Saturday night with the Miami hurricanes and Virginia Cavaliers. It's not even like Virginia played well in play. Well, Dan, there were so bad and we lost to a bad team. Well, I don't think that you should have thought that that FSU game was anything other than what it was which is to quarterback to teams, hiding their quarterbacks, and you saw you saw it against Virginia, like you just don't trust the quarterbacks to do anything at all. Like just simple competence. We're talking about don't go twelve thirty six with three interceptions the talking point from that game as quarterback decision that Mark made following and cozy. Perry second interception early on. He's got no good choices. Mike, if he'd gone if he'd gone to Rosiere in the second half against FSU, I would have understood it. And Furthermore, he would have started this game if he had done that if he done that and Rosiere and benefited from all the short fields against FSU, they don't have a quarterback. I'm with you. A lot of canes fans have only seen in. Cozy, Perry produce on the field and they didn't want to see the kids confidence be shot and be pulled their when I'm telling you is that in cozy Perry throughout his entire time here at the university of Miami is flatly a bad practice layer, a bad practice, layer lightly, bad. And if you saw the reports leading up to this game, a Miami hurricanes had their worst week of practice. So put yourself in the shoes of Mark richt you have a quarterback and there's trust issues. They're already remember. Perry was suspended against LSU. You don't know exactly what four. Let's just lump it in under trust. You don't trust this quarterback. That doesn't play well in practice ever. He just had his worst week of practice under your z. play well in the game we'll hold on. Is there such a good? Is there such a thing as the good quarterback? Who practices poorly does that? Is that something that exists or does this mean that the guy who's practicing poorly is practicing at being bad, they're, they're quarterbacks have for whatever reason and enlarge part. Why wanted to see Perry that when the lights come. I'm on there just game players and cozy Perry through his time here brief. Though it was he was performing a lot better in games than he had been in practice or could it be that the reason he's a bad practice player is because our d. is so dope. And when he plays the games, the DS, not as good as the us d. Did you everything about that geniuses. What does the prize a tropical depression is back by the way. People are just like the point out. We're always in one since I was hung up on, so rudely last week and not allowed to come in on Friday to do my show. People, I think that you should be quiet until the next big win because I think there's nothing for you. I will do the opposite to Broderick sweat and. Hit the Gus well after losing Virginia, what kind of Suelas that it's a faulty custody? It's a cuss wail that's still alive in the coastal division. I was ready for this. Dan. I was ready to celebrate today. We went to Virginia. We were gonna plot who was going to say beano crush those that was going to, you know what I gotta one told me, you know what? People, let's take a week off of your Connell. Let's drink some perceptual and do this class and I was ready to do it. Never again. I have never doing that again. No more recycle. No more classy. Nece I was right. We I, I was so ready Dan with the UVA and they'll and the, you know, when I drink delivers on new years, but we were gonna make a special exception. Hey, man. I thought I said Reno. And what happened? Giant bust this week. What because you kick me out last week when I was bad from this Sean. We couldn't talk to my callers. What percentage of the audience knows that UVA spells who've which is grape in Spanish. And Furthermore. The second. And what percentage of the audience then knows that on special occasions, Hispanics crush grapes with their feet. Everybody knows that you not know that. Everybody does universal thing at twelve o'clock on New Year's we dose l. was baby ROY. Anything about another other thing about new year? Sorry to interrupt you Dan, you know what happens on first light. First light, yellow underwear. That's what you wear on New Year's for. Good luck unrelated to this, but just if we're talking New Year's traditions. Yeah, I didn't know that. I didn't know that your parents make sangria so I made with their feet. No, the the, the crush grape with the feet are thrown out. They are not. They're not then consumed. You have not been eating sangria feet or drinking sangria lebatardshow feet at every holiday that we've had ROY, just making sure everyone's mad Mark richt. It's not just the fact that he pulled and cozy Perry for rosier and Rozier. I did a combination thereof. Rosie and Rozier. I'm still confused with this guy. Same. I was hoping to never seen him again. You didn't. You tweet this weekend and there's some fire on his seat. We'll we'll hot seat. No, no, no, no, this is the first. No, I didn't. It's all. This is the rarest Chris. You saw frustrated, Miami hurricane fan, put a few colds. A few few was at Bunsen burners or stern owes under Mark Rex seat. He is not on the hot. You put some stern under his gamble, put it on the poll. Did Mike Ryan put some stern owes under. Rick seat this weekend on Twitter, did he did he not? Is it ridiculous for me to say that this is the most mad, the Miami hurricanes fan base has been with Mark Rick because averaging you team had an extra week to prepare for an offense. That's been really predictable. If you're sitting in the sands, you're working out these Miami plays, you know, on third and short there. Running back, don't have a quarterback and it's hard to consistently high quarterback. It is hard to win games, conference games on the road without a quarterback, but just beyond that, if I extend this to the audience to people to you to everybody in the audience, and I say Miami the last fifteen years, you've been NC state, right? The audience is going to argue with me and the audience is going to be wrong, like you are NC state your middle of the pack ACC. Sometimes you'll win at present Virginia, and sometimes you'll lose Virginia. Virginia Tech has been better than you for fifteen years in the conference. Fifteen years, Virginia Tech has been better than you. You are NC state largely agree with you and states ever been in a situation where if they won a conference championship game, they'd be in the college football, playoff. And last year there were punching above their weight class. We knew that they weren't that good, but hey, they won big primetime games. And if they beat Clemson, they would have been in the college football playoff. They're actually. More talented this year, which is the frustrating part. And they took a step back because it can't block and they don't have a quarterback and the play calling. Yes, vanilla offense very predictable, but that's more manageable. When you can block and you have a quarterback, what the hell is going on right now, you sit next to this guy for five minutes and it seems like he brought in hatred for everybody and you're sipping on the hatred, and now you're questioning you also let me call out just for a moment if I made Dan, is that okay with you? What's going on with these voters? Why are we not in the top twenty five? I see. Like ten teams with two losses. Let me ask you you like Texas. An two losses were more than the us. Two losses help detect to say elegant. Well, the outta here unless us number five, who else it? Texas ain't on lose to exactly nobody knows in Clemson. Oh, please get outta here clips. We lots. Let's you and Virginia one into one. And you think that that's more than the loss that you had in the first game. The first game of the you're supposed to lose is that now when you're supposed to lose, if you wanna be ranked, okay. So we did a losing what we had to lose and then. After losing the Maryland after losing a Maryland in the first game Texas climbed right back in that because the voters loved the schools like Texas and Michigan and lets you an order day and Oklahoma, they love those Florida. Florida's in the top ten, eleven, whatever. Basically the top ten might be the best thing. LSU. What did you see the LSU team you lost to? Did you see the interception at the end? They kicked out one thousand lucky interception. They barely won about what they did this weekend where they just slaughtered Georgia, please? Georgia who who slaughtered Georgia LSU. Yeah, no, I know us. Good. I'm telling you, but who might receive. The top five team in the country after the first week, whenever. Right people top three right now wanted to that. I had unless you, Virginia, number three, the u who is Ella Bama played? Why are they always number one who they played? Honestly told me I haven't even looked at their schedule, but I'm assuming it's all Bubba games every year. Babur gave us. SEO north, please Louisville, Arkansas state ole miss taxes. Say you allow who is you all l. little raging. Cajun's raging cages. Sunbelt team is it? Are they in a somebody'll? How team allowed to play these soft teams? How is allowed to have this schedule every year? Is it Virginia soft team? No, I told you to Arkansas. They play the softest SEC teams. They play sunbelt teams the rest of the year. No wonder they're always number one, and then they lose at the end of the year and then they stick into the anyways. How does this keep happening? How is this allowed. I'm so excited to see Virginia and the college football playoff now according to your rankings. Well, if they don't slip up, that's the thing is that louvers are slippery. Sometimes we don't have a quarterback, but guess who's to blame for that. Yeah, it's it's Mark richt. This is the third year of Mark Ricks tenure. He's a guy who was recruited, David, Greene, Aaron, Murray, Matthew Stafford. These are some of the greatest college football quarterbacks, the game scene, and he doesn't have one here three years into this experience. That's pretty inexcusable for guy who is reputed to be a quarterback savant. Yeah, that's the the achilles heel of the team. And if you're going to put pressure on Margaret, that's exactly where you do it because. This doesn't look fixable from here. It doesn't look. It looks like they're going to have to have a third quarterback that they're going to have to find someone better than these two guys because and coachie Perry who've shown you exactly zero. That would suggest he's going to grow into something that special. He's shown you. Nothing that would indicate that nothing it's going to have to be Jaren Williams. Otherwise, I'm not just going to be the only person throwing few Kohl's under that seat. He is going to need to fix it, which Aaron Williams or you might not get losses to Virginia. We'll do that to you just because of what regina's reputation is. Even though I don't think you're any better than their best quarterbacks suspended maybe to your your, your cane, wealthy well demand.

These are show with stugatz on the ticket or we're gonna go to your calls the segment seven, eight, six, four, five, six, four, eight, three, seven before we do that, Pat Riley officially had to deny that he called Tibbs a mother Blaker. This happened over the weekend on Friday, late Friday. What do we believe him? Well, he did it in the funniest way possible by denying he called Tibbs a mother bleeper. He did confirm that he called Dany age while he said that Danny aines should mind his own bleep and business where shut the bleep up, which we didn't need a confirmation on that. It was just a friendly reminder that he did it previously little tongue in cheek. So sorry, George, Sodano your report is inaccurate. No, I think I was just denied because there's obviously ongoing talks even though. They appear pretty neutralized at this point because Glenn Taylor drove out and spoke had a face to face with Jimmy Butler. Jimmy Butler by all reports would appear to be starting the season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, you think Riley's annoy that he had to deny that report. It has to be annoying to Pat Riley. Pat Riley was annoyed that that report was out there. No, because I've report is not good for what Pat Riley trying to do. Right. Pat Riley's trying to still work things out with the Minnesota Timberwolves. You can't have this story out there. I know you can't, but I love that he did give Danny aines like years later, he gave us the age one, and I think years from now he'll give us the top dividend story like give confirmation on that the next time he mother bleep someone, you know, we go out to Ryan, wants to talk canes Ryan's which liberty deal look like. I look like Z's, but I think you've talked enough cancer actually have a NBA proposition for you guys. Okay. If every team on the NBA had a player that could fly with the warriors still be favored to win the championship way to the warriors have someone that can fly or no? No, no, no, no, no. Sorry. Sorry. The word do not have somebody that can fly. Wow. I think the warriors finished latte and I have a question, the game chain. He's going on man. He's just gone. What was your question that I wanted to know if the person that could fly stuff to dribble? That's a great question because that'd be difficult to try and call back because we can't make the these rules without you give us a call back Ryan. We go out to Justin, make sure to tell us who you look like. I look like a young Aaron Eckhart just no cleft in the chin. But other than that young Aaron Eckhart. So I left the dolphins game at twenty one to ten, and I don't feel embarrassed by it. This team has been the same crap for the last mine tired. Oh life. So I have no guilt. You have no guilt. You saw one of the best offensive performances in franchise history. So Brock Osweiler come back twice. He didn't see it on his w. Yeah, you have to here. I got to hear step low on the radio, call it. So that was like, listen, I don't blame you how much traffic on the way home you get home. Nice and early right mood. I live in thera soda. I came out just for this game. It was smooth sailing all the way down. Alligator drive from Sarasota watch the dolphins play. The bears. My father. Mike and understand. Yeah, Mike and understand what's the story there? I mean, tells the story. I want Billy to feel max bad about that question. Well, I mean, I can lie and say, he's like dying, but that's not true. He's just, you know, the old man I put up with is he a bears senators offense fan, the cranky fan. This is our annual tradition. We go to a game together. And honestly, I kind of looking to leave. I do actually know he's got the call Justin. Do we saw has Ryan called back. We need to know if the flying player has the dribble dribbler not. How do you call traveling though? How many times how many feet can you fly without having to dribble, you could just do alley. Oops. It could still be productive even if they had to dribble. Well, we won't know until Ryan gives us a call back. It's not that impressive to be honest with you in basketball, you basically have to hover because if you're flying, it does good to be flying fifty feet over the rim, drop it in hope that you get it in lying helps you, you're flying, right. You're going higher than anyone else can go. And then you just drop the ball in the bucket, I know, but you from places that guys can't block the shot, you know, and it's always on the way down. So have you seen salt ending like the guys that? Oh, that's true. Acts cannot block that guy shot. It's always on the way down. That's always on the way down, but you can't make shot if you're driving in from like twenty five feet is it's implies Ryan's back. Okay. A key part of being able to fly is being able to actually leave the ground. So if someone shoots, you can't actually shoot up into the air while the ball's going up. You can shoot up twenty feet. If you have to. We go out to Ryan who has more explanation of these rules. Yeah, I would say just like Mike said, if he can fly, you could probably shoot some anywhere on the court, but also maybe we could change it ten of flying. You can extend your arms the way Michael Jordan did say no. I am to dribble is the question. Let's not get okay. Okay. So yeah, let's just say he can shoot from anywhere since he can fly. So he would still have to dribble. Okay, but how he has to dribble how often. Oh, the same amount. I mean, he can't doubles. You're gonna taking steps these balls if he's flying, say ten feet above the air, it's going to be really easy to steal that ball. Kink gourd he king Gordon defender with his buddy came back down. I got the warriors and six. I mean, let's remember that each team has a flier so you can have someone up there with them guarding him and stuff. Yeah, that's another well, each team except for the warriors after the war. Viewing this through the warriors prison right over the warriors do have one of those guys naturally who's arms extend out forever and ever Kevin Durant. I have a question. So would you be allowed to stack players to try to defend him? So like could you call a charge on the flyer because you have three guys stacked and he runs into them? Definitely not. Insane that has to be allowed with. That's insane. But you have a guy who could fly on every team except for the word. Yeah, but I mean, that breaks the rules of basketball. We can't climb up on each other. I mean, it also breaks the rules of physics, so let's not get bogged down. Good point. All right. Thank you for your call. Sue gods? Yeah, the health of the dolphins pull this off football, but what do you mean? That's how the ball bounces. Sometimes. Sometimes it goes off a guy's hand right into Getty stills his hand. I think it was Kenny stills. I mean, that's football, that's that's the game. That's how it works. Football doesn't explain being able to guard Khalil Mack effectively with one of the worst offensive lines and football. You know what I am. I'm kind of done and I'm tired of trying to explain football because I don't think any of us really know what it is we're watching. So I just chalk it all up to football like that stuff happens. Occasionally, the bears come in with the second best defense in the NFL Tanna hills out. Brock Osweiler comes in and the dolphins win a football game. I mean, that's, hey, football. I, I can't explain it. It's just the things that happen in that sport scrapie it's why we love it. Quarterback controversy. Oh, yeah, poppy nailed it. Did he not weeks ago. He said, Brock Osweiler we should. We should get that sound. Yeah, there's there's probably not within that locker room, but with the fans, you know, there's going to be one, right? I cannot see the fans keeping up for Broncos for face. He's this happening. Yes, it's happening. It's happening. People on on, it'd be the starting quarterback. Yes, like you know that come on. I know that I know what I knew who Brock Osweiler is. This guy's been a joke p dolphin fans really want Brock Osweiler another week one more we, this is a different Brock that we've seen before. Let tannehill get healthy. True, not good one, not for good. This is not a permanent. Let's let's play the sound of Matt Hasselbeck who spoke on injury that Tanna hell's been dealing with since his Oakland game. Maybe we are gonna see Brock Osweiler for an extended period of time. Hasselbeck spoke on it. He actually sustained the same injury. I have had that injury, the injury of the James Winston had last year. And so basically it's the top of your shoulder right here and what they can do on game day is they can put some basically what amounts to novacaine in there. Just numb it up for about four or five hours. And so you're fine on Sunday, but you're probably not going to be fine. Know the next week and the next week the next week. And so that's a decision that they're going to have to make for him. It doesn't surprise me at all that he looked bad throwing the ball this week in practice that pain. 'cause you're not gonna inject it during the week. You're just going to inject it on Sunday. And if it were me, I probably would sit the guy, I would sit him let that he'll up. It's not a serious injury, but it's a very, very painful injury comprehensively. He says, it's injury that James Winston had last year. We saw a lot of Ryan Fitzpatrick towards the final stretch of the season last year. So maybe we are. Brock Osweiler, and he's going to have every opportunity to make this a legitimate quarterback controversy because. Miami Dolphins were three. Now with Ryan tannehill, then they put up too bad performances one they were in control, and then tunnel got hurt, and he's been dealing with this injury. You should accent him that benefit of the doubt. However, if Brock Osweiler can lead an offense on a consistent basis to five hundred and forty one yards of offense, then you might actually have a conversation, but that's not going to have a hundred consistent basis because that's one of the best defense in the NFL top two. Okay. So to deacon lions at home next week, might you win that game with Brock? You know where the fans are gonna go up the line ever come out of the lineup. Again, you do have you, do you do have the lines coming off a bye. They did, however, sustain an injury to their sex off. A bye were. Yeah, it makes sense for them to start Brock one more week because then they have a short week to fall because they play the Texans on Thursday, Thursday night. So you give them this Sunday off again and then start them against the Texans. And we go out to our Mondo, not who do you look like. Hey, guys, actually like Steve Carell like a five sixty of krill. I mean, we were just letting that sink in. Is it current, Steve crow, with gray hair office, Steve krill off if curl out to the office season one Carell before the hair plugs. One hundred percent season three, not one. Okay. All right. Proceed Armando. So for, I guess for the whole for the whole squad, would you rather hit a buzzer beater, three throw or catch a Super Bowl winning pass. I'll walk off bombs in the World Series or a goal in the ninety, seven minutes of the World Cup. I'm going to walk off in the World Series. Think I'm going buzzer beater, NBA finals. I don't think he spent the specify NBA finals. Did you know NBA final the absence? Okay. So I'm walking like it's it's won the championship. That's it. It's over. Yeah. And you get hit against the warriors if you want. Okay. Yeah, I'll take that. I mean you, you didn't give me a golf options. I'll go with you. You can do a hole in one Gusta. Hold on one or two, Gus God's. Would you take that? Do I win the green jacket as a result of me hitting that home one? Absolutely. I don't take that off the buzzer beater for me. What do we find why you're not gonna take a hockey option. Basically, it's just everyone's, here's favorite sport. I'm taking the World Cup winner in the ninety seven minute. I'll tell you. That's a good point. Well, he didn't go winning. He didn't give that option. Yeah, you never give you that option. That's what you should volunteer it, but you never seem or. No, I is anyone flying in the NBA and the team play that takes away from me a little bit. I mean, that's ridiculous. Flying. I can't. I can't deal with that. He never gave the Gulf option either in God's added that to the board. So ROY, Kanat hockey one. Oh, absolutely. Add the Stanley Cup game winning overtime goal for me. What about like a perfect cornhole throw that just goes straight through, doesn't even touch the board in like cornhole championship. I would prefer to add the cornhole no hockey face. Okay. Whoa. Oh, all right. Thank you for your call. ROY. The Panthers are doing that thing again. Whether disappointing everybody, they absolutely are slow start. Oh, to one, another slow start. They're going to do this. They're going to do this again. Chris was all excited for the pan wagon and guess what? This means. There's going to be a late season surge in which they're just going to be five points out of the final playoff spot. And we'll do this again. You know, credit to them, they are consistent. These Florida Panthers, what's going on. Bought the penalty. Killing us hasn't been good. I mean they have had limited opportunities on the penalty kill, and they've already given a three nets twenty. Fifth in the league might not present seventy percent sale at the work on that. They can't score in the third period to their down. Like in the three games, four, nothing. In the third period going on with the defense as Yandell losses step. I know that Longos been hurt their nine points out after three games. Well, Toronto's had a five one start, so they've gotten off to find start, but they're nine points out after three gate. They've also this is absurd. They've also played only three games in the NHL and how many games have the maple leaves played six. I mean, what's going on or are they also Billy? Weren't you telling me that the Panthers are going to Finland? Yeah, I'm looking that up. I don't know where it got that from. I mean someone someone texted that in and I just took their word for. I don't know. I'm thinking to last year. They might have gone to Finland in the last two weeks because I don't understand why they've only played three games. It's gotta be really hard for them to find a rhythm to they go there for. Good. Hey, hey, don't make that joke. Man. I'm tired. I joke they're going to. I'm tired of moving the Koubek. I'm tired. I joke. They're going to finish land. God give it. They won those two games in hand. They'd still be five points. If they could be undefeated right now and they'd be heard. That's amazing. First and second, they're playing in Finland against the Winnipeg Jets that's coming up soon. So they're going to do this. So after that they probably have another extended break thing. Toronto is going to have twelve games on them. This is absurd. Why do they do this every year? ROY? Why don't we fall for it? It's an annual tradition. Mike, it's an annual tradition. They're gonna pick it up in February, and we're all going to be excited and back on a pan wagon.

I've been a fan of jennifer rothschild for years. She is like allege allege and and i'm just so honored when someone with <hes> such history in faith is wound down dr me so. I just love her she in nashville a couple of weeks ago. We got to sit down and chat so i think you're gonna love this conversation with author speaker and one of my heroes in the faith jennifer jennifer rothschild okay. We have to start at what i find to be be the most important factor you've ever taught me your friends with coach. Mark richt says wait. He is like one of my heroes in life. How'd y'all know them. He's a good hero to have yeah <hes> so it goes way back when we were both newlyweds okay his wife catherine and mark and me and my husband feel we weren't tallahassee. How has he florida together. He was working at for to stay yeah of course yep and that's where my husband got his p._h._d. My husband's a professor. Oh by the way any that means his name is phil so i have moon doctors. Oh my gosh dr okay yes but anyway mark and catherine and phil and i went to the same church and here's the thing you'll get this because football on the weekends he'd come to hurt and god bless them on a sunday morning. After a game on saturday and every man there wanted to talk to him gracia and so of course we were always at church together. I was also on staff at our church so for that reason. K. are small group bible. Study was not always we always didn't pull well it off writing so we started a bible study those marking catherine and another couple. We did it for seven years so we have my rhone of with them spiritually richly yes so they've just been some of our dearest friends. I have to tell you when i was a sophomore. Georgia is the year he came to athens and he came around. I may have told us on the show before but i don't care i'd love to almost he came around to every campus ministry that spring any shared his testimony and he asked us to to pray for him and to pray for the team by name and that year our ministry split up every football players name and pray for them every day for the whole school year because coach rick asked us to and it just felt like <hes> i feel like in fifty years we'll see his investment georgia in a way that will that will so eclipse anybody else well yeah and it'll eclipse any football fame right. That's exactly right because he's invested in character and that's the thing i love about. Margaret is he. He is the real deal yeah one hundred percent sincere. He loves the lord most of all and that's why he loves people. Well and i mean you know he's retired. Now from coaching would a man. Oh very also friends yeah. Oh yeah we're still friends. As long as he'll have a will stay as friends a couple of years ago. I was nominated for a kayla fan award the same year. He was <music> lost. It's going to be a say that the biggest part of that night for me is. I took a picture with like oh my gosh. I loved him so that's all i. I just think the world of him so i'm so glad we already have mutual friends. We share a ton of people though i mean i know that you have been am i right that you've been on the women of joy. Yes group of lady as i. I just did that for the first time this spring and i love those people. Aren't they the best people yes yeah. They're the real deal too and those women who attend women at joy are fantastic. Yes it's amazing amazing. You just kinda. Don't know about women join until you're in the middle of it like as in you don't know what it's like until you've gone right statutes of any writer but but man i am grateful i got to go to one in can speak at one in april and i am to be again and twenty twenty but good man they are just is that when when you think about all the places you speak what makes that wind kind of stand out to you well well. You know it's headed up by the wall drops. Yes he'll waltrip and his wife debbie and i think that leadership makes such a difference so there is such a genuineness in their intention aladin in their mission and in so it's consistent in every person on the crew in every person on staff and there's a sweet spirit. I don't know if you sense this anti but anytime i doing women enjoy i sense that these women i know they're physically not but spiritually they are like on the edge of their seat. They are yeah and you can sense it. It's ten thousand four work. That's the part there's a sweet energy and the worship their worship to me is set apart to charles billingsley. I guess he led yeah yeah for sure he did. Oh my gosh he's so talented yeah. It's just like light of matching. The place catches on it. Yeah that's exactly right. I mean i. I told him after i was. I was like man. I could've walked walked up and read the phone book and the lord moving because i'm just lucky i get to be here. This is just incredible. How much do you travel speak well. I am out <hes>. I try right to do a little less every year. A little more targeted every year <hes> but we have our own comrades called fresh grounded faith oh so we do thirteen of those year no yeah thirteen year so we've got a little team. The team is probably too small for the amount. We do workers but they're region-wide. I call them kingdom minded minded yeah region-wide and so we have a host venue church. That's larger you know sitter out two thousand but then the best part is all these smaller churches come together gather and co host it you know and so it belongs to every woman up and <hes> so we do thirteen year. It's not across the u._s. Yeah i do the bible teaching but we also have other gas asked to lead worship and share story do teaching <hes>. There's a really sweet event and then i do you know other events like you mentioned the women joy and other events like that how many how long you been doing this fulltime measure profession a law <hes> well. I don't know when i slid from being just to saying yes to opportunities to becoming profession. Right line is blurry. Are we still just saying yes to opportunity hoping someday i'll wake up and realize it's a provision but about twenty years ago literally <hes> <hes> i just had been invited to share my testimony and i'll tell you i'll give you this little snapshot of how this started sure because truly i believe ministry is something we <hes> receive receive <hes>. We don't okay teach me about that. We don't achieve it. We receive it now. Once you've covered or private that's an on stage or serving in the nursery men and by the away those are equivalent in god's sight. Yeah no kidding you. Show up in your obedient and you do what he's called you to do that. Success listen. I've said to multiple people when we get to have an on the one cut mcgrath's. Yes i know my spot the ones who've been serving the same church for forty years as the pastor whereas the children's director or somebody who's been teaching public school or working in a prisoner enter a nurse. They're all got way. Better seats yep yeah well. It was i had done a conference. This was many years ago and i started in ministry and music okay and so so i was leading worship from a little keyboard traveling carry this was in south florida and there was this little known bible teacher who was speaking. Her name was beth more. It's just a little name. Something comes to her. Yeah god literally believe in her and so evidently at this particular conference someone asked her to speak at their church and she wasn't available so they asked me and my husband said yes for me because he's always had more confidence in me than i've had myself but anyway that's really how i began and so i i started sharing teaching a little bit and he don't anne. It's one of those things. I don't know if it's with you but you step into something that god lot is asked you to do and your obedient and then you realize you're qualified. Yes yes yes so. I think sometimes we wait to feel confident didn't to act with courage or we we wait to feel qualified to say yes and sometimes when god causes to say yes. We just say yes and then it's like you. Become the spectator and you go. I didn't know like do that. Yeah and it's because god does it three so that's kind of where my story started. That's beautiful. My very first professional speaking event was because candace cameron beret wasn't able to be there yeah so thank you beth and thank you. Can't we both exist in this job because of one. You weren't able to say i think about. I wonder if you do too. I think about that when i i have to say no to events rag man. I'm excited for whoever right the right woman is for this event because it's not me that's right. There's someone out there. There's a woman that is waiting for a chance chance. I i was willing you know for those of us. Who it's hard to say. No we have to remember that are no might be somebody else's yes yeah so. We don't need to be so great the okay we're just saying okay i can't that's okay so did you so i mean i guess if you started in south florida. When you're young beth more exit like the nineties yod yeah mid eighties ladies okay late. No you're right late. Eighties okay man that is so you've been doing full time ministry for thirty years. Yeah almost can't believe it. Okay tell me why you haven't quit yet. <hes> because i i will number one. I haven't seen it as something that i choose to quit or not or it's just the opportunities to say yes and to follow god but here's the thing it looks different now than it looked and then it look thirty years ago but at the same time to anti i think the impulse to quit is still there yeah right and and that's usually not because the calling has changed. It's maybe because i am not managing the calling in the way that i could good because sometimes we get caught in the machine of ministry and i think that's whether it's on a larger scale or smaller scale ministries demanding. We see the merit of it and so sometimes we failed to see that we're not integral. We think if i don't exist within this ministry than this ministry can exist and when we get that mentality i think we can wear ourselves out and feel feel like you know okay. I got i got. I can't do this anymore and i think we're god is transition me in the last few years because i have been as busy as ever with writing and speaking and and doing these conferences is to recognize that i'm not necessary for this to exist that god is and when i can just this go okay you know part of the way i do this. I miss quote the scripture okay good. I'm all right. Here's how about heretical. Okay good okay so here's how misquote philippians for thirteen yup. I can't do anything without christ who strengthens more of i got and so i think for many years i was like yes i can do this can do this right and and and is true i can do all things through god strength but until i really reverse that reality and say bottom line is i cannot do this. I can't can't do ministry can't do life into marriage can't do blindness. I can't do parenting came to any of it without christ who gives me strength right then. I'm freed up to be able to do it better better and to do it well and do it for the long haul. Yeah you mentioned it in there that the blindness. You haven't been blind this whole time <hes> right. What year did you start losing your sight. I was actually a teenager okay fifteen so i'm fifty five now and so i <hes> which is also surprising that when did that happen but i've lived now in physical darkness longer than liz lived in physical site you know so so what's interesting about that became blind because of a disease in both of my is called retinitis pigmentosa and it's degenerative so when when i started you know i couldn't see my text books very well. I couldn't see i was a student of course <hes> conc- off the chalkboard well <hes> my facial features began to just kind of fade. I couldn't see my face <hes> so there were a lot of very subtle changes the began to a career quickly <hes> and and i was declared legally blind as a tenth grader oh so of course my whole world you know changed and was draped in shadows had to learn how to be a student without being able able to see and navigate all those changes but it it wasn't very long. It's hard to detect a exactly win. I became totally blind but somewhere somewhere in my late twenties to mid thirties. I'm not sure win. It just became dark and so now that's my reality <hes> and so it's of course the hardest thing i deal with the best so it's not <hes> you can't see anything. It's just totally dark right. Do you dream in pictures. Yes okay i do and i but i don't dream a ton <hes> but when i do yes but here's what's interesting about that. There's never faces so even if i'm able to in a dream there i detect a person you know i never see a face which i think is such an interesting interesting and disappointing in reality is when you think about it <hes> i saw faces very clearly yeah and i'm never see my children never see my husband but like my mom and dad and my brothers i saw those faces and so tonight even have the memory of those reinforced i in even in a dream is kind of you know. It's it's it to me. It's it exacerbates the loss yeah but i remember many two years ago when that reality it was it was a reality. I wrestled with a lot when i when i realized i couldn't remember my daddy's face or couldn't remember my mom's face those ruth they was painful and and i had to really wrestle through that but i will say i always try to find hope hook right to put all the pain on <hes> not as a pollyanna but just isn't realistic way to get through the day right and so for me. I realized that that meant you know that when i really see because i really believe in heaven i will see really the face of jesus will be the first one i'll see clearly how recognize being nice i mean that's the kind of helps shift. The shift of the lost the perspective of the loss so that that helps me. That's how i get through that yeah on that. The loss really represents a greater gain eventually yep eventually <hes> do you pray for healing not really <hes> i used to yeah yeah i've gone through seasons of greater discontent and that's when my prayers for healing get higher up on the list but i did learn many years ago that contentment pinch for me. This is for me personally yeah had less to do with blindness and had more to do with just me being cranky or selfish whatever it may be and so i went through a season where i really ask the lord. I was studying philippians. Two you know where the where paul talks about. I've been in this situation. I've had lack. I've had loss. I've had plenty and learned the secret to being content and it really has nothing to do with where i am or what i've got whatever state i'm in and i began to really pray through that what what did that mean for me and so i learned that when i began to pray for contentment pure godly spiritual commitment then if i really was able to learn that had to be content then if i'm healed then i'm in a good situation right but if i never learned contentment and unhealed then i'm just miserable blind woman because i'm never learned contentment in right so right so that's why i don't i don't really pray for healing anymore because god's brought me to a place of contentment and i trust his sovereignty taught me about i. I was reading this morning. In second corinthians where paul all says that whole thorn in the flesh thing he's like it's actually in my weaknesses that god's made strong and the lord kinda was pushing on me about like being more continue in my own weaknesses a little bit. How has that played. Does that feel true for you. Does this feel thorny or is it not that way to you. Blind is definitely feels thorny. I've studied the scripture a lot because blindness is not my biggest problem you know yes so that's how i feel about single by the way singleness is not my biggest problem but the outside world would look at me and thinking that it is exactly those are just the more obvious things right. They would think that should be the struggle. I think the real struggle show up in those big headliner struggles right right yeah so i i do believe god strength is shown up in our weakness but not necessarily inherently <hes>. I think it's how we manage that weakness what we do do with that weakness whether we're willing to surrender that weakness and so when paul in that passage you're talking about in in a second corinthians twelve it goes on to say most gladly sadly therefore this'll be a little king james but i like the way he says it <hes> most gladly therefore i would rather boast in my weakness that christ's strength strength would be made perfect right there okay so that were boast that literally if you look at like back if you rewind to the original greek what you're gonna see there. It's almost this image of the chin being lifted <hes> and it's almost this sense of. I'm going to have a little bit of a holy confidence in this thing. That should beat me down. I'm gonna just lift my chin up and i'm gonna have some strength in some confidence there because i know that how i manage this and how i walked through this god's strength is going to boost me and bolster me and make something of this that is far more than the loss <hes> and so i know for me. I have to constantly remind myself okay jennifer. You can either lament about the weakness you can wallow in the weakness. You can fall down and let the weakness crush you or you can say i'm just gonna lift my chin up and say here. We are god. I'm fully hearing my weakness today and then it takes the pressure off yeah no longer in weakness management mode hurry and you're not hiding because you're not fearing weakness management mode. You're also in hiding mode and you're compensating. Yes no and you can just rest. I've heard something about that. I don't know much about myself man. That's in credit i would. I love for you to tell me about how you study the bible on your own. Do you have an audio book read to you or do you journal. Tell me about your spiritual disciplines in your life well. I do <hes> so. I have a computer that talks a laptop. It's actually software called jaws okay and so it can animate or make any computer read to you right and so that's how i write book yeah i was gonna say. Is that how you do your new yep so if it were here right now it annoys people. Usually i tune it out but i can hear every <music> hit so it's like eighty yellow an anti okay except the voices not humanness since emphasized anyway but that's how i yeah right and and so my prayers i have found for me. I am more focused. If i write out my prayers me to the literally every day that's what i do so i tied up my pronounce and so that then becomes a genuine in the moment relationship with god but it also becomes from an a history archive archive yes so i can look back and so i do that as far studying the bible. I have a couple of bible apps that i use devotional yeah. There's one bible app. I i am absolutely crazy about called dwell. I don't know it well okay. Oh i i'm such an advocate <hes> it is not free but it is worth your investment vestment in their ministry quality that they do but it several different humans who read and they have different accents and then there's music you can change the music that accompanies he's in <hes> is searchable and they put things together on on plan so that's what i used devotional yup. I have one like that that i use called. Pray as you go. Oh read it to you and then they ask you questions tunes and they read you a scripture again and then they say glory be to the father and then so. I like that though i'll try dwell too yeah. It's nice to have another human came to companion. Ask i think the same thing i'd like all the ones i'm praised british all different parts of britain my south africa. They go just sounds better. Yeah i got my exit set linked to all of these in the show notes so people can go and find them for themselves but yeah that's awesome okay yep and then i just well every morning every morning devotional and then because i'm because i write and write bible all studies and and i am a learner <hes> unfortunately i can't use traditional software like a lot of wood who studied the bible but i'm really dig dead authors and they're all public domain and so i can use the internet and google and gutenberg and all these different ways to access <hes> so i i you know that's samatha henry and i are buds yeah google there and they'll read their books you and then you'll take pieces and go okay. Here's what i want to journal books zona right off of that and yep yep wow so it's all i mean technology will do what i do. I think that all the time i think <hes> how did people people study the bible on a day on a daily basis like you and i attempt to do. I'm not every day but then i try without google has even today what happens to me so much and maybe god is gracious with us but what happens to me so much. I'll be sitting there reading something else that go. This reminds me. The paul said something about a thorn in his flesh. I don't remember and where that is and i google it and it tells me second corinthians twelve i think as i marvel at some of these dead authors <hes> because unlike they didn't have all that and and they just have the discipline of stain in the word and studying and studying and i marvel at it i do too. I just marvel and i'm so grateful. Oh i'm just so so who else do you. I love to read. That's dead see us louis. I do have a crush on him. Your husband's very handsome by the way i'm sure people will just keep dr phil. I will keep and he's he's not threatened. Dairy dead is very done. What is it about c._s. Lewis is writing. That's so interesting to you. Will you know i've of course i'd always heard of him mm-hmm but about five years ago seven years ago i fell into a deep depression and i say fell because it was not just you know fall fall from the edge into a pit quickly but it was like slide down within nine months till i was at the bottom and couldn't find my way up right and that's not been my thing okay. It's just not do you know your number. No i don't okay yeah. It's not my thing either. You feel a little. I'm a seven you fill little seventy with me i do. I yeah like depression sneaks up on us because we don't do that. No no i just say subdued. My maiden name was jolly okay. I'm saying number of it right. Okay so you fall into so i did. It's just really so. I did everything i thought to do right. I pray i journal. I stopped drinking caffeine. I start taking this herb. I what whatever i did everything i need to do an eye i during that point everything with emi became an moored k. so as much as i loved god and he had been my life line started to doubt <hes> his existence will i it was his character sure and it was his existence and then i was like well i know jesus lived but was he really defined. I mean everything that had stabilized me. I started to question and doubt but within me. I was still praying god helmi okay. God help me and that's when i found c._s. Lewis a grief observed and i just dabbling and then the more i learned a story growing realized he was an atheist who then became ideas to then finally came to true belief in christ in his whole life was they knew was born again and we all know the result of that i literally ask god help him. Let me make ceus lewis my authoritative guide. He's a million times smarter than me so even though i can't trust you right now god and so even though i'm not leaving i'm frank them right didn't make any sense but let me trustee as lewis and he's going to lead me through this and that's when i fell in love with him and god did use him to help me get back to where i was in a place of faith which of course then became stronger denver and so yes so now. I have this deep affection for c._s. He has lewis and i love everything about him fiction and nonfiction both yes <hes> i'm. Where should we start if someone's brand new to see us louis. We have some some friends listening. You don't believe everything we believe who are kind the news all this. Where would you start with c._s. Lewis well when someone's really seeking to understand christianity of course mere christianity is a good place to start but me give my caveat okay it. It was a series of radio shows that he did during world war two answer so you're going to experience to things like one it feels like it is is very much world war two vernacular case remember the era of which which he wrote it but also he didn't write it as a book and there's a difference between something you speak in something you right and so there's parts of it. That might be clumsy. See have to kind of make sure you're aware of that. Soon turned off imagine him reading to you exactly on the radio sitting there in in your home in nineteen forty but my favorite fiction of is is the great divorce. Have you ever read any. I love the guy love the great divorced i and to me. It's a real picture so much of the grace of god so i would recommend that if somebody's a fiction reader read it see what you think about it and then ask somebody who's is read it. It'd be a great discussion. I love screw tape letters to a lie detector. I just think that nothing will get. I have a pretty pretty wide justice streak in me. <hes> and nothing will get me. He fired up like reading from the other. The enemy's camp. They knew they were doing that to me. We're jump the shark moment. Where you go like oh wait. He jumped the shark now. I know you know so that lights me okay. You said something really interesting for all of us who are readers and google irs and all sorts of things. You said i came across c._s. Lewis is writing <hes>. How did you end up coming across his writing. How'd you find new authors. How did that happen to you. Well you know you can always go to some of the websites where <hes> and what is the website where people talk about the books they've read <hes> i know what you're talking about. I don't go there because they have so many reviews. Good reads good reads. That's it anyway so i it scares me say so many things about our books well. I don't say about mine quite on me. I can't but i just went there did books about grief but that's the other thing because i thought i felt like i was grieving books about and so i literally just google books about grieve and it took me two good reason i of course grief observed. Yes <hes> so that was part the way that i did it. That's brilliant just telling people. I think that even little tricks like that of like if you want to read a book go to amazon and google christian books about grief and see what comes up yeah. It's that simple and trust the reviews to some degree like if there's eight reviews or if there's eight thousand reviews probably lean toward thousand even if it's four stars versus five stars exactly but i just love i one thing you're doing so beautifully for us today. Is what does it look like to every day. Walk with the lord. I just what does it look like when you're in grief. It looks like googling something exactly. I think we over spiritualize yes the way we think we need to do life. We're christians went. I believe if you are a believer in christ. Everything becomes talk right. That's what maddalena would say right. It's all everything is. It's all here as it is yeah and so whatever tools the lord is put before us. That's what we use but i also think that one of the things we should never do the google google is a gift and anything online is a gift. We never use that as a substitute for real human relationship that may connect us but that does not give us community and real l. healing and real bravery occurs in community and so when you can talk to somebody who actually you know has skin on them and a voice. This sounds like yours. That's what you that's the first place we go whenever were searching and struggling. How do you find those people. I think you have to be allow yourself to me and community which i know you've written about being brave. Sometimes i think one of the things we do brave. Is we put ourselves out there and <hes> i believe the best place for that is the place got got designed which is the church because jesus died for the church and we are his best. We are his best effort on earth to let people know who he is what he's is like yeah so we connect ourselves with church. We don't try to find a perfect church. We join a church and we help perfect yeah. That's right the process of being the body of credits. If it's perfect picton you show up yeah perfect anymore all right friends just interrupting this conversation to tell you about my friends over at samaritan ministries healthcare sharing basically if i have a medical expenses over eighty thousand christian households have my back and each month i'm part of getting someone else's back in the midst of their medical need samaritan ministries itself simply coordinates christians committed to helping each other bear the burden of medical expenses.

I had a friend reach out to me on instagram a couple of weeks ago and say i love your podcast but it's very hard for me because i don't know how to make friends and you always have friends on <music> and i what would you say to her about how you go out into the world and make friends well. I'm bad at it are you. Yes i'll give it a thumbs up to your friend because i'm an introvert introvert okay and doing great today. I feel like we're friends. I mean i feel like you jumped right in well. Thank you yeah we're having a great time. Well and i'm i'm bitter with one on one <hes> to be honest with you. <hes> groups my husband. I'm married to a labrador retriever right so you just bounds and trump wants to lick and hug everybody and have the pet so so but for me personally it's hard for me to reach out and and then you've got this added layer of complexity of blindness sure so when i say hey you wanna go shopping. I feel like such a burden <music> because it means they drive that. I'm just have an ulterior motive. Getting my needs met right so i over complicate everything yeah when i was going through that season of depression i knew intuitively awfully of course i was isolating new had to reach out so i remember asking these two friends. Hey you wanna go to dinner. They didn't know what i was going through and i literally chickened condado any. Did you like three hours before i said i have a terrible headache well. I did have a terrible headache because i had worked myself into a stress headache. That's right but i made myself do it again and we went out to dinner and i never even told told them. I'm really struggling. It just was too soon for that. So i think part of it is we take the pressure of ourselves. Do something easy <hes> and then make sure you do it easy and you don't quit do it. I mean if you fail. Do you do it again and and if it requires finding somebody that you can be really honest with and saying a singer so painful you to lynch with me we love people who are real not people who are perfect yes and so you give another person permission to be human when you are yeah and so i would say into that friend. I've done it. You can do it. I promise yes you just gotta do it. Yes there's no big formula except as a threat. I had the most interesting experience on good friday 'cause i i went to we don't have a good friday service at my church so i went to another churches good friday service out a friend in the car with me and i still got nervous when i got out of the car really house i just because i didn't know where to sit and i didn't know which door we are supposed to go in and all of a sudden oh this is how everyone feels the first time they go to a building like a church or a meeting eating or you know i've thought and i'm so grateful the lord circles as back into those moments with my friend who on instagram saying. I don't know how to make friends. I'm going manna. We all experience that we do. I was so nervous walking into a church and i had someone in the car with me. I was so nervous. I have a friend who who lisa wetzel is all right. I mean i don. I know her but i i sure newer on blair flair on facts of life well. She has written a book. It's a couple of years old but it's called friendship for grownups. <hes> wow the reason she wrote it is for the very reason of what your friend ask on instagram okay. How do i make friends. I'm nervous. I don't know how to make friends yep well here. She was a grown-up right right and she really didn't learn how to make friends because she grew up on t._v. With a cast right so here she was as a grownup trying navigate how to make friends when she felt nervous and uncomfortable and how do you approach in. How did i not be too much for somebody right. It's a really good book. Okay friendship chip as adults yet. Friendship four grownups sorry friendship for grownups. I will have a link on the we'll have a link that's exactly right and now we're gonna call blair now. We're getting at least a welsh on the show to come out to be friends. I just think i think you're right there. Is there's a gift of instagram twitter facebook for some people that is <music>. I feel connected to other humans but i haven't left my house in a week right. It's not community and it's not it's just not the long term solution. I totally get it because they're friends of mine that i don't ever get to see but i get get to see them on instagram and see how their kids aren't go like so then when i am in austin texas and i see them i go oh. I've been keeping up yeah. You feel connected but i find never show up in austin texas. What are what are you doing. You know so so i'm with you. I think the first thing our friends can do that want to make more friends. Israeli lisa's book but also do something that's easy and stick with it and actually do it and actually do one dinner one conversation one take me shopping. <hes> go with me shopping keeping all that young oh that's brilliant okay. How many books have you read it all together. I think fourteen migration yeah fourteen the most recent <hes> well. I just finished a bible title steady on his hometown. Yes i have it right here in front of me when i have the cover is beautiful. It's like this it looks. I used to live in scotland so as let's say it looks like scotland yes. I didn't know you lived in scotland so i've lived in edinburgh for part <hes> for about eight months ago. How wonderful. I love it. Why'd y'all do the covering scotland. I don't know l. I'm blind but you love. I care about the words they can do. Whatever you want with over over two hundred episodes and that's my favorite answer ever. I don't care i'm blind so the cover can be nineteen colors. I didn't know if there was a connection with scotland for you that you. I really love the pastoral scene they wanted. You know it's very green pastures right yep. What the whole thing is green by the way <hes> tell me what made made you decide to write a bible study on some twenty-three. Will you know i actually this was two years ago. I had planned to write a bible study on the book of haggai which is by the way what i'm doing now. Yeah i would love to do a book on that. It's going to be good. It's going to be out in july of twenty twenty perfect. I can't wait and everybody good but i was writing hiding it back. In january two years ago and as i was writing it i was working on my computer right and it gets silent and i hate it when my computer gives me the silent tree don wishing every button trying to talk nice to it nothing i take it down to my husband. He was downstairs and i'm like what is wrong with my laptop and he said it's the blue screen of death. Oh no and it was gosh and i lost everything and long wait never got it back. No we took it to every geek known to man in the hard drive was empty it. It was terrible my gosh back up back up your stuff people anyway. Rebecca lines loss left a laptop in the back of a compute like in the back of a flight seats. Oh yeah and her whole book was on. It never got about and she never got okay. It's a bad thing yeah but it can lead to good things because when i lost haggai i now here's here's thing any more my computer is not just where i work but this is my brain <hes> like everything right and so i remember and got sick right after that so i was laying on the road couch in our living living room up no laptop and i was just nothing to read to me. I was like in this mind vacuum and i remember laying there sick quoting psalm twenty. The three lord is my shepherd and i would quote it over and over. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. Even though it might look like a red couch right now right i mean he had really brought me to a four stop and bottom line is i was burnt out. I was worn out and so it was from that moment that god began to teach me and some twenty three is seven versus and i've written bible study and i thought when i started it lord really i wanna do haggai want to get it back in but this is where the lord lead me and the cool thing is i have seen how he's used it and women's lives in ways i could have never imagined and it was. I was almost embarrassed like who writes a bible study on the most familiar psalm known riots right right right and it's because it's so rich as god's words it's living. It's active the holy spirit teaches through it and i'm still learning from it and so i'm very grateful talking. Talk talk a little bit about when you get a detour like that because that's happened in arab is like. I don't know that that that hasn't happened with me a book. That's happened with me in relationships or in other work. Things were like you are so sure you're on the right path and then literally all of a sudden the path changes and before but talk to me about the days between haggai and some twenty zero. I know right. Well you think the detour is just that but what i'm learning is the detour can be the path and so i was not a spiritual the paragon laying on my red couch with the flu with no computer share. I was just quoting scripture as a way to not like say bad things. Yeah that's exactly right and so here's here's the thing that i think we also need to be aware of is well. It's in verse three of psalm twenty three the lord restores our soul and it says then he leads needs a stone paths of righteousness for his namesake so sometimes we think we know the destination of our path and therefore when a detour happens we feel like we need a to navigate all those orange cones and get back onto the path when really if the destination of our path is at the end of psalm twenty three for his namesake sake right for god's glory then where what what we think might be the detour can actually become that path because what's for god's glory will always be for our good right yep yep. So what do you do when you're there and you don't have all that spiritual revelation i think is that's when you do the second corinthians five seven you just keep walking by faith by faith because his if ultimately you're saying god this path is your path for your glory and so i'm going to believe it's a right path. Yeah you know even if it doesn't feel right right right. John piper calls <hes> ah path of righteousness a right path with the right attitude all right so that's where i was learning when i was in that season is to not assume that the detour is really detour when it might be the path but also align my attitude yeah just to say okay. I'm manages grasp loosely here and i'm going to walk humbly lord and i'm gonna just keep walking by faith truly not by sight because it's not where i thought i'd be and i think it's a process that we just one day time just doing the next right thing and the next right moment yet. Tell me what you know about that. Scripture walk by faith and not by sight well. I do know with with blindness in fact. My first book was called lessons. I've learned in the dark right here beside me as well. Let's go steps to walking by faith not by oh. That's the subtitle sorry you guys that was not on purpose but that's a that's a good move on my part i didn't mean to i just wanted to know. Let's either you you but but that's really where where i realized as i began to walk in blindness. It became so much <hes> faith lessons for me because i realized faith really is the evidence of that which is not seen right yeah yeah and and i'm not one who's like this big believer that faith is always blind because i believe that god sometimes does enlighten like it says is of our hearts that we can really see the hope to which recalled when you're is enlightened so that you see the hope to which you are calling the riches of the inheritance that we have in christ and in the body of christ then that step of faith is one one that is really affirmed by this spiritual insight that you have right okay but sometimes it's not like that and it's just a true. I'm gonna take take a step of faith knowing that i can't see what's next but if i trust that god does and i'm going to step in blindness literally like when i walk in here today of course awesome holding onto my husband. I've got a cane but i cannot see the step that is in front of me but i trust in that. Were any does her podcast. It's a smooth level floor <music> so i'm not going to be terrified every step. I take because i trust any that. She's got a safe environment right so if we're walking by faith we can't see what's next sweet. Trust god the one leading us down the path that he's got a safe next. Step for us and we can trust him. Just take it so for me. I i think blindness is this constant classroom to really learn these lessons of what it means to walk by faith. How can i learn those as the same person. I think part of what site does for us that is to our detriment is that it gives us the illusion of control yeah in a sense of responsibility ready for everything that exists around us and that's one of the hardest things about blindness quite honestly is that i have to trust other people right. I mean i look in the mirror and you decide. I like this hair color yeah right i. I don't look in a mirror. I trust my hair styles. I trust my husband. I trust everybody does your make because it's very good good well. I do my own you. Do your own make that is so impressive. I was going to give dr phil some credit for known how to do eyeliner no he checks it for me yeah because but i'll do it by counting like so i know how many times to count for my mascara and minor but if i lose count of course that's why he is always checking to make sure yes yes brilliant new count to put on your makeup you you literally learn paint by number to your face paint by numbers. That's what meredith andrews says. I do think uh-huh oh my gosh. How much do you love mayor by the way is that she the best. Did she have a deep rich beautiful soul. Yes i mean her. Episode is one of people's favorites on here. She and i toured together her two thousand twelve fourteen with girls of grace and she was just one of the highlights of that whole experience. I guess she makes my heart happy. Every time i'm with y'all do events together. She does fresh grounded faith with me. Oh good yeah not every single one but yes. That's how i've gotten to know and i think she's brilliant. I love it. Okay sorry backup. You're saying how i can learn how to cite. <hes> it makes us feel like we have control. Yes okay it does because suddenly we think if we can see if we can fix it. We can understand it right but that's an illusion and you know that right. There are some things in your life that do not make sense and we'll never make sense. There are so much in your life that you cannot fix can't fix other people. You can't fix your pass. You can't fix any of it right and so i think with blindness it has pushed me toward having to recognize that affirm that every single day and let go so oh how can you do that. You can really literally see yet. You still really wanna walk by faith very in a very spiritual sense is to grasp loosely. <hes> what is it mica a six eight. I think mia you'll corrected on the show notes. Thank you <hes> but the scripture says that he has shown us. Yes yeah oh man or woman what is good yes and with the lord requires of you. I wanna know what that is right and he says it's that we do justly and and we love mercy and this last part is how i think we do it. How we walk by faith is we walk humbly with our god and that image in scripture as we are literally. We're we're not lagging behind him like he's dragged through life. Were not in front of him so he follows us and we're not beside him giving him the elbows saying do this do that but we're literally. It's like walking with this retiring attitude toward god right beside him saying i'm with you. You're the boss a may not understand it may not like it but but i'm tucked right here in the shadow of your wing and every step you take. I'm steffan with you <hes> zane pace. I'm not getting before and i'm not getting behind and i think that's how we do it. We just grasp loosely and we have a humble humble approach to our life into the circumstances in her life yeah okay. I'll i'll. I'll try. I'll give it a go and you know what i think. He's reset it every day. That's right sometimes every hour editor and honestly any. I say this stuff is so much easier to say than do can. We just make sure we know that right right that we have to be. That's what god's grace's grace's for he does it. He does it through us and yeah and we and we don't put so much pressure on ourselves right. We have a little bit of a paul theme today as we've talked about new testament scriptures which is hilarious because people now oh he kinda makes me crazy. Sometimes he's just not the one. I'm going to get coffee with. I wouldn't that be exhausting. Yeah yeah i just i'm gonna let everybody who really loves him getting first in line with paul and i'll just catch the second so we're gonna have coffee with obed peter. I adore peter. Oh you do and why. I just think he's always honest. I don't think paul's aligarh. I think paul tells the truth to you but i think think peter different heaters just who he is and he shows up at peter's just going to do the next thing i think i need to do. I'm going okay well jesus. If you're not gonna wash my feet wash my whole body like peter no oh so sweet but no i think i like him because he goes through such a massive transformation scripture yeah i like first and second peter that he wrote and i just am so grateful for how the writers of the gospels made peter very human and likable to me well and he's so emotional yeah just cutting the guy's ear off like he's just the guy who's gonna do the thing that he thinks to do and then he's gonna get in trouble. Jesus later <hes> and then jesus is going to say peter. I love you right here. Do you love who do you wanna have coffee with. I well. I'm ways. This is the first one right. That's the answer to everything right <hes>. I love jose jose okay but i'm really into haggai again. Yeah i liked minor prophets. They're curious to me because they spoke god's truth some some of them reluctantly. They felt the weight of the emotion of this of the choices of the people. Yes they served. That's a big deal yeah. <hes> i i just i. I think they're you know amos can get a little scary. The sure i'm gonna have coffee with him. I and something tells me francine rivers gets first dibs jose probably but then we're going to get that's but if you walk up on them having coffee she gets a female is definitely. She is probably the reason. I care about that story. Oh right <music> redeeming love what makes me bring up. Paul is in <hes> in second corinthians one six. I'd never seen the scripture before i'll read it to you and i'd love for you to respond into what you think about it. If we are distressed it is for your comfort and salvation. If we are comforted it is for your comfort which produces in you patient russian endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. I mean it kind of feels like that's why we do our job right. Yeah and you know that's the hard part and a and i remember many many years ago. This been thirty years ago. <hes> starting in ministry. There is a a friend really an acquaintance <hes> and we connected somehow. This was long before the internet. Yeah and we were both doing music. Okay 'cause ministries music and as we have this first conversation about it. We were saving money to record corta c._d. And we were traveling anywhere anybody asked yep that's right and so as she had an sources so tell me what's going on with you and she literally said well. I got this and this and she starts naming. These name brands of clothing for her to wear on stage <hes> well so she had her wardrobe yes sure and that's all she had and i remember at the time and by the police don't hear me saying that with condemnation. I'm not because for me. It was a teaching moment like wait a minute well number one. I thought oh crud <music>. I'm wearing this dress. I wear every weekend right. Oh listen. I have three shirts exactly we rotate right exactly but what it taught me is this importance importance of the ministry really is not about having the fancy wardrobe it's about living the reality of what you teach and it's about experiencing it and that's the hard part because like even now. I'm writing a bible study on haggai and it's interesting. How even the now i am experiencing something. I never expected. <hes> in a relationship is not my husband thank the lord but in a relationship where there's been some betrayal and awesome accusation and some opposition and it has blown me away yeah and it is taken this person has taken it to a level that i would have never expected did and so i'm living it and as i'm studying haggai and realizing these people were trying to rebuild the temple and they're doing what they're doing for god and they start getting accusations from their neighbors and their feeling opposed and as i'm experiencing this as i'm studying it. It's a second corinthians one on six experience because before i have written about people <hes> were experiencing and teach about it but now i'm actually getting to live it and experience the hardship arch of it so i can feel it because if i'm feeling i knew someone who's gonna read that book is gonna feel it and i'm going to be able to minister into that in a way with genuine empathy not sympathy because a genuinely care yeah but that's different than saying i know with this heart. Crushing hammer feels like yes and i promise you just like it. Says says in haggai two four you can take courage and you can do the work because the lord is with you but then what is the second part of that verse say any right that were comforted. Yes so that we can give the comfort yet. I think is because if you live three hundred and sixty four days of the hardship and only one day the comfort you don't have much from which to derive right. That's right to god gives you the balance yeah. I believe he gives us this green pasture day so that we've got some rest which we can draw and lavish that upon others in era shutters. I'm like you. I'm kind of a word about the bible and i loved that it said if you tell your story of distress god gives comfort and salvation. If you tell your story three of comfort he gives endurance and i thought okay then i need to make sure when i'm telling my story to my friends in real life around the dinner table and on instagram and in books that i'm telling the distress stress story and the comfort store they both matter because it gives two different things it sure does stress one gives comfort and salvation. The comfort story gives people endurance and it. I love that because it reminds them that yeah there are sunny days and god is present within your heartache and so that's why you keep pressing on right i love. I'm glad taught me some thank you. I love that one hundred to one then you've talked about that. Versus jumped out to me today of like oh. If i'll share the harder parts that's where salvation comes for people and you know what to sometimes because paul says and they are just for your sake that i suffer yeah which sometimes we think okay gosh paul. You're so fully yourself right right but i don't think that's what he's saying. Now i think what he's saying. Is that whatever you're facing right now that hardship you can endure because you're i'm not going to do something for somebody else later and there's some people who need to hear that right now that this is not just a pit. They're falling in so they're going to die. Drown it so that others can see yes. This is the the goodness of god. This is how he restores. This is how he pulls you out of it and so it gives a little more meaning to those yeah really hard moment. Yes thank you so much for being on the show so so god is great for your in town and we could sit down and do this. You're one of my favorites so thank you face. I feel the same way. I hope we're on the same stage sometime soon. It's just so we get to be in the same place again and i'd love to learn from you in batch nightmare okay so our last question.

The former Georgia coach now television analysts will be with us then what? He tweeted yesterday of the following. I know I have an idea you recruit and develop players and when I think you're good enough I will poach them from your roster. Welcome to what the normal will look like in college football. So we'll talk to you a coach about that man. That was an exciting conversation. There with Professor Rick Bragg just the simplicity in what he said I think will continue to resonate around Our audience for some time. What would a special special conversation that was? We are taking your phone calls now at eight five five to four two seven two eight five and let us continue right now. Gooch had he be Gucci. Hello Gooch all everybody. Hey Bud I was just gonNa give you a little smut. If a for Kubiak Goes Blazer you remember the hassle company from New Orleans Hassle made The the seersucker that's right and they never made one look that bad. No good friend of mine. Doug aim is a talk show host in in in Montgomery texted me a minute ago. He said he looked like he's part of the Lawrence Welk Orchestra. Hey but the reason I called Paul was told your producers and then guys. I talked on the phone. What about the old great announcers? Would you ever do a program about the Great Stan Tortoise and my son and all these guys we grew up with What I once did a newspaper article on the legends of the SEC. And those two were mentioning and you're really There are I don't know if there are any that are still in existence that would be considered part of that legendary group. I'm not be searching the people that are doing it now. I'm talking about the old guys but It's every In Mississippi Jack Crystal at Mississippi State and and Oregon Senate Ole miss and John Ferguson Down Baton Rouge and John fogarty in Birmingham and Jim Fife at Auburn and of course Munson and K would lead firm John. I was in Knoxville last Wednesday. And someone asked me about Jon Ward. I mean I'm leaving people out but The list goes on and on but it is just amazing. You know because of our generation. Of course I'm just a few years younger than you but You know you grow up you. Listen to all the Games on Saturday but these days really hard to listen to some of these guys well. Here's here's the issue. That I think that the announcers today have the radio guys and I remember talking to Larry Munson about. There's not be long before he died. He said it used to be game. Was One thirty. You rolled into the press box at eleven thirty. You got you. You went down and had had had lunch with all your buddies and you did the broadcast and it was over. You went home now. If if you have three thirty kickoff the pre-game show starts at eight thirty and you. You're on the air so long so everybody can make a nickel and then you're on after the game for another two or three hours that you are literally spent by the time kickoff comes and I agree. Yeah well it's the great Compliment to all those old guys because they really really well. There's ought also These guys now. Most of them Work for the school. They're they're part of the branding. Pr Marketing Department won't but look at look at what this was this. Img come came in and bought a network. Yeah I I don't I don't want to single anyone out because I really That's one thing I don't get a chance to do very often listened to the Games and one other thing which I failed to mention and it's probably the most important thing the the problem that all of these great announcers have whether it's gold or or the guys in in your state or elsewhere is they used to be hit on Saturday night. I I never forget. Bear Brian talking about this. He said Yeah I got a guy he he walked out of a press. Conference want you so I gotTa Get. Outta here and go home and listen and listen to the LSU game. Remember the southern Dixie Crystal Game of the week or whatever it was called Every game on television now. I know that sounds pretty funny coming from a guy who's sitting here at the epicenter of all that but you you're competing with television and it's it's more challenging as as a result. The game is slow. There's so many time outs. There's so many replace so it's not it doesn't have the same cadence that two and a half three hour game head but you you got guys out there by instant scripts for Xm in serious that right up and down the road listening to it every night. Where you're talking about the truckers yesterday. I mean that's just as important sometimes. Well sure everything is dictated by by paying for it and I'm I'm not being. I'm not biting the hand that teach me. I'm just being honest about it. Yeah Yeah Yeah I know. Hey did you ever go to crump? Stadium Po yes. I sure did I in my dad took me there All first time I went there it was on a Friday afternoon My Dad took me to a a freshman game. That's how far it goes back and then I went to a lot of high school football games there as well. Did you ever come down to Oxford to see a game? Oh sure many times well. Did you ever go see a freshman game not no. I never saw a freshman game in Oxford. I I'm pretty sure. I saw Ole miss and Memphis state. Play a freshman game in In in Memphis though well there was a coach that nobody ever probably ever hears about outside of Oxford while the day. And if you've made it through his freshman year they say you would always finish. That is great. I can't the freshman role Change in the early Seventies. I believe right about seventy two seventy three took away the freshmen redshirt but I think somebody mentioned that The other day About the freshman basketball teams to where I remember game. I think it was Johnny Newman was Johnny. Newman at Ole miss was. He playing freshman. Baller was or did he only played one year both broke the mold. Yeah Yeah case about her two. What yeah I got to know Johnny late in his life Man What a what a character great story you know those guys. The car dealership in Memphis took care. Well Yeah I got. Thanks for the call.

Thank you mark mark? I'm a Yankee Queens New York fence a lot of time in the south so don't let them give you too much hell buddy or well. You don't hear too. Many people proudly say hey. I'm from Queens. Usually from Qu'une Bayside Yep I'm from Jamaica as opposed to trying to talk to Larry. I'm in Queens. A lot going to the airport. Good old Kennedy. Not that I WANNA be. I don't blame you. I act and that is a big airport by the way. Yeah it has its own zip code. Tell me about it all right Paul. I'm calling. I'm a frustrated gamecocks Van Crock. Fainting Queens. Yeah spent many years in Columbia South Carolina. That's my Alma Mater. I was there for the tail end of Lou. Holtz beginning furrier. We're getting killed in. And around by our in state rivalry CLEMSON and recruiting now. Am I acting recruiting class every year? Like two thousand nine with Gilmore Alshon Jeffery Ingram and Holliman. No but I think we can be doing a lot better than we're doing. We're a great. Fcc Program there's a lot of local talent where a nice campus Must Camp and his great contract. Which was you know? Rape Panners Higher. We can go into a whole other debate on whether rape baseball coach or athletic selector. But what my question is despite the hefty by out if we're if we're continuing to underperform in your opinion it what chance do we just do? We need to just bite the bullet get rid of month chat. Move on and start again. Well I I think that brings us to the upcoming season And I I heard both sides of the story last year. Were you in favor of retaining or dismissing much champ at the end of nineteen I was in favour of retaining him just because you know I I. I stay recruiting you know Jordan. Birch is a bright spot in his. You know I mean Birch was Was An obvious. If you can't get the guy you can't get the guy in your own town. Who are you going to get? I I completely understand and I look. I was in favor of it. I I wasn't expecting when the SEC's but I was also expecting us to do better than four in a you know. I wasn't I Johnson. You're you're a pragmatic fan. I thought it was a terrible season and I still can't believe it But I'm willing to Navan like you are so it comes down to what what what is. The Red Line for four will muschamp and and I don't think there is a specific number but I think everyone needs to see dramatic improvement or else I completely agree and I I really I really think look. I'm all for different reasons. I don't want to get into and take up too much time. I'm against firing coach mid season. I I don't think that even if you bring in a new guy or an Perron. I think that's horrible for team. It's not true I would I would. I would definitely say though. I think if you agree by the end of this season if we're still severely under performing he's gotTa go regardless the. Here's how I would answer the question if if we're talking in late November and the answer is still up in the air. Then you have your answer. There has to be a clear and compelling reason for him to be retained. And if there's not I think he should be fire great. We're integrated. Thank you very much. But he he got his mall again he he survived A. I don't know if it's the right decision or not and I thank you very for the call really do appreciate it. Red Dog. I guess. That's a Georgia Fan. Yeah Hi Paul how are you doing? We're doing great. Have you ever been to Mary? Mac's tea room in Atlanta. No I've been to. I've been a headlines at the Russian tea room about two months ago in New York. Does that count no Mary? I guarantee you I guarantee Marek has an autograph pick there. He's got the best pot liquor. You'll ever taste hot liquor bread rope liquor. Yeah potluck. It's like a it's like a turnip green. I get you Kinda. Yeah and say what is the deal was South Carolina fans in Arkansas? They just solution. I mean I know that the dogs last year but they can fire much they can bring in Lou Holtz. They can bring in anybody they want. They'RE GONNA they're not GONNA win. You know you sure I mean it's just like Arkansas. They can bring in anybody they won't and they will be firing them in three years in the navy for repeat the cycle again and again. I mean I just don't know what the buddy from Queens in New York I mean. I don't know if he got stuck on a on the fly down there. But you know Josh Carolina's not winning anything anytime soon You know hate to break it to them. The same way was saying Arkansas. That was the biggest blessing that could ever happen. You versatile I mean look how much better we ran the ball in the sugar bowl and it was. You know with all Mrs ex coach so I just get tired of all these you know I get it. We're we're we're all on the outside looking in m national championship. We have been for a while but I think that's an exaggeration there What was exaggeration that George has been on the outside looking in the National Championship? For a while I mean it's only been forty years. Sorry I didn't laugh all you probably not alive. The last time Georgia won a national championship. Are You alive? Yeah NO NEGATIVE. Cleveland's okay so I mean but but there was a moment though in early January two years ago you thought you were about to to have one in your hands right outside looking in second twenty six. We got this aric. You're about to win the National Championship. Yeah I mean about to walk off touchdown. We'll talk to mark coming up here in a moment. More of your phone calls eight five five man. We've really Miss Red Dog. Eight five five two four to seven to eight five is the number and we will talk to you after this. You're listening to the Paul Finebaum. Show podcast shelf back. We're glad you're here and certainly a lot Happening with all the conversation about the new proposed possible. Nc double a waiver The SEC has chimed in on that Mark Richt very prominent yesterday. Opining we shared with you his tweet of a couple of minutes ago what he put out yesterday in the aftermath and he was nice enough to join us Right now coach. Thank you very very much. Always a pleasure to have you on and We we did talk about your tweet in relation to where we are and as we say hello to you I would. I think we all appreciate you giving us some Some explanation and character. I'll I'll read it again for those. You Miss It. I know I have an idea. You're recruiting develop players. And when I think they're good enough I will poach them from your roster. Welcome to what the new normal will look like in college football. You clearly do not like this. Do you actually wasn't any kind of opinion on whether I like it or not. It was a more of an opinion of what I think's going to happen when it's GonNa look. I think that I mean I understand that the reason why you know the kids want that ability and they in the true sense of fairness it makes sense. But I'm just saying if it if that rule does come into play then I think you're gonNA see an awful lot of young men go into certain schools being recruited by them obviously being developed have a fantastic sophomore season. And then all of a sudden somebody has a need at a power five school or top five school or you know top twenty school whatever it is and all of a sudden becomes an attractive place for this kid did move to. I think you're always going to have young young people that when things get tough. They're just GONNA WANNA bolt and go to another spot. I think you know I worry about that a little bit. If the guys leave it just to you know. Try to find A easier place or you know if things get tough all of a sudden you want to leave. I think there's something to stick it out and making your way. I mean those stories happen all the time and now happening a lot less at a time now but I think there'll be so there'll be kids that are aren't doing well that want to change schools. But they'll be ones that are doing extremely well that might end up. You know changing schools. You know the very best player on a certain team. All of a sudden literally does get poached by Power five school or a top ten top five school and all of a sudden that teams left. They're hanging Wondering what happened? Chatty was coach Rick About Where we think we're heading in college football. Let's look at both sides of it and you've given a nice preamble to that We always think about the player. And that's natural. Most pundits take the side of the player but as someone who's coach it A number of schools at the highest possible level. What what's it like being a coach when when you're not only having to recruit but but deal with what's on your own roster? Yeah I mean you you you worry about. Just the overall discipline of your team if a coach decides okay. I'm going to become more lenient on some of these things that I think are important. Tell build a character this young man and you don't build character unless you go through a little pain you know so well we're to relieve going to relieve the pain by Loosening our standards on what it takes to stay on this football team so all of a sudden these guys maybe aren't learning some look life lessons that they need to learn all on the other hand and other coach may say you know what I'm GonNa stick to my guns and do it. I believe is right. Do I believe is right for the program. Answer these players in the long run and then end up having a mass exodus and having to sit there and try to figure out what happened there so it's it's GonNa be at the other thing too. Is I know a guy could enter the transfer portal and all of a sudden. Decide that you know everybody can recruiting. But don't don't the portal if a kid is doing well and somebody sees they have a need decides. Hey I'm gonNA talk to his high school coach and and see if You know this kid might be coming to so and so school and come play for us. It helped us win a championship. Or whatever it may be You know you people be you already worried by staff sizes. But you're going to the recruiting department not only looking at high school and junior college kids w looking at kids on other schools On other campuses just like that looks at the free agency. It'll be very much saying and And I know how healthy that's going to be. I don't WanNA put words in your mouth because it's your it's your analysis but does it favor The rich The top the top of the without a doubt doubt doubt. You could look at look at Miami. And they've got a defensive and I think the best player for Temple Great Sack artists and then they get quarterback out of Houston and and that was graduate transfers. And that's basically everybody would have the same ability to move like a graduate. Transfer is now a graduate transfer. Obviously go and be eligible immediately. Now everybody can be that way if it turns out you know that they changed that rule so now The rich will get richer. I mean there's no question in my mind that schools that have That might be more attractive as far as the chance to win a national championship or or the perceived chance to have a better chance of going and higher in the draft They'll they'll get taking kids from other schools 'cause And so now I mean I'll use this as an example you got the Jamie Newman and wake forest. Who is a great football player and at an unbelievable year and did great things for wake and then And now he's gone he's gone to Georgia's we know. And so you know things like that will continue to happen. And I'm not saying he shouldn't have. He shouldn't go I. I'm definitely an agreement with the graduate. Transfer rule I like it. I think if a guy's got his degree and earned the right to do that. I think that's wonderful the other one. I'm not saying it shouldn't happen but it's it. There are going to be some interesting things happen. Along with it. Recruiting coach Rick is always challenging but with this new rule underway The redshirt policy change so many other things going on. How does it affect your great? I'm sorry to cut you off. But I think that Richard rules great rule But your question was what? I'm sorry. How does it change the modern coach in twenty twenty s overall approach recruiting right? Well you know you'll probably have to save some room for the transfers. You may not you know. Take the whole the full boat of of high school kids. If you're sitting there going. Hey if this if another guy becomes available transfer portal. We need to save space for him. And even things that are super important but recruiting services at all. They're going to have to start great in classes based on not only high school kids but the the graduate transfer and the and the one time transfers as as to what type of class that they had in the offseason coach. Finally the other side of it. The players side. I know you alluded to the the red shirt and a good one but How how much can you? Can you stop it? Now that it's happening and I realize it's not official but it looks like it will be Have we opened Pandora's box? Well I don't know I'm not I really not against them having the ability to make that transfer and I'm just saying what I think's going to happen if this rule changes now you know we've gotta decide it like like I said it'll be a new normal you just after a while you just get used to it just the way it is and college football you know. Is it the best thing for college football? I don't know. Is it the best thing for a lot of these Group of five schools and even you know Division One AA schools. Sem Schools is going to be the best for them. I mean it's got to be frustrating to find this gym. And he may be a two or three star guy he grows into you know become a monster in your league and all of a sudden after one or two years guys gone and even after the third season you know and all of a sudden you got those guys will have to figure out how to patch some holes that they never dreamed it up to patch with with guys leaving in the middle of the other thing again getting back to the discipline of it. All I mean I really. I'll say this. I think it Virginia Tech there were some guys that didn't like the way things were going. Those kids wanted to transfer and then Coach Fuente said midseason. So you know what I'm going back. He made some changes in the offseason. Pry loosening some of the standards and then he came back and said you know what we're GonNa do it the way I believe best. And if Y'ALL WANNA be at practice show up don't it the road and he has a bunch more this year that are wanted to transfer that. He said he's not gonNA he's not gonNA take it back. Put Your name the trash reporter and you're allowed to say you're out. Some of these kids won't even have a school to go to So I think it'll be messy at first and ever he's going to figure out how to just to coach. Mark Richt on the proposed new policies. Kirch really appreciate you coming by a couple of months ago and we always enjoy talking to you. Thank you very much. Thank you have a good day. He Bet Mark Greg. Joining us Acc network analyst On the the new rule that is certainly working. Its Way to being real We'll take a break your reaction to that couple of more guests to come including conroe Garrett who has some strong opinions on where we are right now with the transfer portal and USC football on the agenda assuming they still have a program by the time we get together to listening to the Paul Finebaum show. Podcast we'll come back greg great to have you on. Greg is up next day Greg for taking my call. I caught the tail end of the coach. Rick discussion we had and Mccown the call. Our backs had written a story today for athletic discussing this transfer process. And how it's working. Its Way through this working group and one of the things that she said in there earlier. Caller had alluded to was that In the manner that they're able to push this faster than normal. The existing rule states that that schools have to sign off on these transfers. Now lately they haven't been doing that But if a student is going to leave. Lsu Do you think coach is GonNa want him going to Georgia? The playwright away. No but what can you do? Well that's going to say in there as far as I know from what she says. They're working through this in one of the questions they ask. Is Our school's going to be camping outside of the DORMS Poaching kids from a fellow school. So or they're gonNA have this new free agency. Yes we just don't know what it's going to look like yet and I don't think it's going to be of the manner where a kid is going to leave Auburn and get to go. Play Georgia Let me ask you this and I. I haven't read the article but if it's a universal policy Then what's going to stop it? Well because the current policy that they have which will remain the ruling is This is a review process so the way that otherwise would take two years to do so. Now I get all that Greg. I'm just trying to figure out what we're GONNA look like all I wanNA know. I don't need to know anything else. So what they're saying. Is that that school. Still have to sign off on student request and I don't think that schools are going to sign off on students going to play Across street rival weather. A Tha basketball or football I can't so I just think. There's a lot of unanswered questions and and coach. Rick seem to be adamant that you know even though coaching curse. Now it's going to assume A magnitude that we haven't seen before and unless they they work this carefully of course as you know Paul. Ncaa doesn't do anything carefully. Thanks Simmons is up next in South Carolina. Hello Simmons Hey. How's it going Paul Okay. Thank you I The ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM WIVES. Kubiak have is a bow. Tie on tie. You'd have to ask him that. Can You answer the question? I can't tie it order. He don't go through the motions That burn it because it's purple and orange. Blue gator callers. That's utter but do I'm calling because most champ isn't so bad of coach it's more of a Brian. Mcclendon was terrible offense coordinator in play. Call it like if you could have replaced Prime Clinton with Shanahan. But you know a good offense of mind. You know how you know how I respond to that though and Simmons when you're four five years into your tenure and you're you've been a head coach for many many years that's a that's a that's on you You can't in coach for a better. I mean maybe the first year but the eighth year as a head coach. Yeah so you kind of wonder. What most champ is thinking? Because he is the one who calls the shots? Yeah so how many. How many times must yet missed on offensive coordinator's In his head coaching career. Yeah and how many times it Matt Stafford throwing a pick. Georgia never won the national championship. And then they get both but If you could mix Frank Martin with will must champ. I think that would be a perfect. We'll see if we can make that happen. James in Louisiana. Hello James Hello ball either. I've got an interesting story. I was Sales representative for major Blue Jeans and casual slant slack manufacturer yes and we had a team in New York City that were sales correspondent and each one of them was assigned to a different rip to handle problems. That might come up with his accounts. Larache thought it was smart to send that Rep They sales correspondent down from New York to work with the REP and need some of the accounts. And that way you'd have a face to put with it. Well my little fella flew into Houston and first time. He had ever been thirty blocks in any direction from downtown. And I like so we. It started out and and was headed up to Dallas. After we got through working the Houston area. We was headed up to Dallas The next morning and going up interstate forty five. It was getting toward luncheon. He was Kinda getting hungry and he said you think there's some place up here where we could stop and grab a sandwich and I said sure that Next town said Yeah. I saw that sign it. It was for Nexia House. Said Yeah Okay so we. We turned off and at exit there. For my Heya is the way it's pronounced and First place we come to was a dairy queen he said. Can we get a sandwich? And I said we sure can. So we've pulled into the dairy queen and my hair and win the end and I guess it was probably a little high school girl. Seventeen eighteen years old. That was working and he said look before before. I place my order. I won't know and I won't. I deeply apologize. We're at the top of the hour. We will never finish the story I apologies.

They are free loaders on the great paddle Wheeler of life riverboat gamblers who never any up. But are always there to take when the pots divvied up. That's sexy. This I did. Handsome, men with moustaches roaming river barges cover on Martineau, though, these these are cowards, but back, you know, I'm sorry. Bad cowards with mustaches. Stolen, mustache our blog.

Because what we're talking about is that you know, you don't have much of a presence in the annual EDS Bs charity bowl that would be the one time that this entire community the shutdown full cast listeners EDS Bs readers rogue hangers on. Random people who just sort of enjoy coming in and like, I don't know dropping a grand donations. Just because they can which includes nobody from either Oklahoma school today far as Cadel.

Come on down there in the thousand years with our president you spend that you spend that on velour tracksuits in a week come on drop drop as a grantee Boone. No problem. We've been doing this for trying to figure it out for show. We do not know eight years. Yeah. That oh, that's the voice of patio. Nixon a longtime friend of mine, and my former boss, this is what I wanted to ask Katya about tonight. Okay. Liked to have Spencer working for you. And has anything changed has anything changed? Let's say so Spence when I worked together a very very long time ago, and we were babies I'm like twenty five and I was running a department. I had no business running. And I hired Spencer to be a vocational counselor and ESL teacher for refugees and Spencer. Was created. Actually, he weren't you weren't you weren't bad at the job at all. You you had a report with the clients. You were creative. It was. It was fun to have you in the office. But you were were new to the professional world still am. But you're less that wasn't a wasn't a bug as a feature not wearing shoes right now. But at your initial job interview a heard that you did show up in shoes shoes. But no socks. Okay. Yeah. So has degenerated. Improved. Their foot about home. Become a pure vision of myself. No, mustache and Spencer. Did bring a great Dane to work in a piece of it was migrate day. Steal a great game. Random. It was your great team would to to an English class. Would it be fair to say that the great Dane brought Spencer? That that would be fair that would be fair. Yeah. I mean, I didn't really have much of a choice. The dog was to work with you like, okay? Yeah. Do swirl. Swirl if it under my desk. Curl notion. Curl right up fine. You could barely see half of her under there looking conspicuous. Like like when Ferdinand the bowl tries to hide behind a flower. Like, that's that's what it looked like here for a reason, it is the head of numeric pathways that is the refugee service organization that we raise money for every year four as we said, probably like eight years ethnic. It was eight years. Okay. Irony of the internet at our we've been doing it for seventy three years. Yeah. Yeah. That's better. Stuff like a telephone. Bowtie undone and our forty seven of it. We were we were selling we were selling war bonds. The in the Korean war. Thank goodness. We'll never have to fight Nazis ago. Hey. So speaking of which Duke, y'all got to step up. Having a roughly. But as tonight, we have all twenty five dollars from do. But do you know who they're beating beating Michigan state hint dollars? Oh, if that happened before not I mean based on the the big stories in sports news Dookie got money to throw around serious. They're handing out money. So you're handing out money to families. Yeah. Come on what Ardy liked to do this? There might be some people in here who can play basketball. And how do you want them to? Remember, you this? This is what we do for our eighth year. Now way guest. We don't now we have everyone would just ask for donations to new American pathways and asked people to donate, preferably in the form of a score. That reminds everybody of time when your team beat your rival terribly. For instance, you know, your taxes are taxes because those aren't rivals not writer definitely not thinking of each other right now kissing their fellows with the other face crudely drawn on it in crayon. Little cowboy hat on the pillow too little white pants on. I love this too. Because the only thing they currently squabble over is which when brings in more revenue, so sure you donate a hundred million dollars in the name, Texas is rich do it as Texas. Am fan himself said earlier tonight y'all we got oil and gas money on a little brother complex. Let's put both of those things were come off. But the fundraiser on spinners, right? You're you're you're closer to Houston. And Austin is right. Zero dollars out of heat today about though will in their little tapped out right now. What do you mean? They went pretty large to start twenty nineteen. You know, they're going somewhere else. Whole damn NBA team draining their entire boost refund. Related story on nation by noted NBA reporter, Steven Godfrey. Wow. We'll have to get Tillman for t- to kick in a couple of bucks. Dana dana. I dunno man. Dan is probably it's not like he's busy that money will come back. It's an investment. I give it a give it to Rodrigue. Oh in Caracas on the third. He said haven't backed by the fourteenth and doubly what could go wrong. How many people do you think? Dana hasn't his own named Rodrigue. Oh seven. Yeah. Yeah. How many of them live in West Virginia five four five? He's gonna have to expand. His Rigo portfolio in Texas. The the fundraiser for new American pathways just get people like a little like what is money. Do. Thank just in short. Just a couple of things, you know, three or four things that if you go. Okay. Well, you know, refugees resettled in Georgia. What what y'all help them do here? Well, first half for the where the organization that welcomes them to Georgia. We're there at Hartsfield Jackson international airport when they arrive, and we continue to serve them from a rival through citizenship. So we provide housing causing basic needs. We register kids in school. We take people to the doctor teach them how to use public transportation. We get them their first job. And then from there, we really work with families on the things that they've told us that they really care about. So we have a huge after school program because refugee parents tell us that they really care about their kids. Taking advantage of all the opportunities that are available to them. We have a job to career program because a lot of refugees come in with professional experience. And we help them we help them work in their field. We help people become citizens. We help them reunite with their families. And we help register people to vote last year, we registered eight thousand one hundred and twenty two people to vote as they swore in as US citizens. It's beautiful. Probably my favorite. But skew told me a little bit about the after school program 'cause I've never been there the coolest that's all like like pay pay. Actually, you you've worked with like kids kids twin our highschool highschoolers. Awesome bear they were easy on. I I think that's my favorite thing that I ever did. I I ran the youth program back when we were recess before we became new American pathways. And yeah, I absolutely I love the kids. I I always kinda liked the. The troublemakers. But you know, kids in after school. Refugee kids, most of their parents can't speak English. So they can't get help with homework at home. So we help them with homework. We do fun activities. We go on Phil trips. And we play soccer soccer is the key to getting kids to show up. And then then everything else is gravy, the by the way, if you're ever volunteering at a refugee program after school and the kids say, hey, you wanna play soccer. The answer is no they will not down. No, they will knock you out. And then they will say I'm sorry this painting. But soccer, they will they will cap you like the Dutch soccer team. Give them sports. They'll learn stuff. This is just like college football. Yeah. See it's exactly like that. The other thing my favorite thing about doing. This is that one of the largest like non-governmental donors to you. American pathways is after eight years doing this is the DSP Arcadia football site. Yeah. That's that's hard to explain to. Our board is very appreciative of the of the BS community. But yeah, I do explain how this whole thing works all these people Cussing about the state of Alabama. Why aren't they Cussing up? Come on. Gotta have real passionate here. You know? I know that like they wanna sometimes, hey, BP Funda defensive sort of reach out and you're like reach out to. Five hundred six hundred toters. Oh boy. So then they really say what can we do for Spencer? And how do you keep them away from? We could invite him to a meeting. Oh, no. We're gonna find him under a desk like a great Dane, maybe with another great day found. So we did we did honor you with booze. Yeah. New at our big gala honored with the stand up at our table people. I did how was that? Terrible Cole saves. The worst part of the night. The boost was good great. This is wonderful thing. Standing in front of people being called by your first name is. Yeah, it is this this fundraisers actually been really important for us. Because when it started like eight years ago, we were in organizations that was almost completely funded by the federal government. We didn't have the ability to come do the kind of programming that we really wanted in the things that are clients were asking for. And then every change in the government in over the last year, a lot of changes in government dramatically impacted our our our organization, and this was our first really big individual fundraiser. So it helped us kind of develop an individual fundraising program. It helps us start that process of diversifying. Now. Here we are back then we were ninety percent government funded in our sixty percent government funded and not all of that came from losing government money. So. So we've all kind of like grown up as a process together. Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. Also, we've grown up as a process not grow. Also, I really like reminding people like, you know, like name football refugee, Tim Bianca took Michigan raining Curren. Yeah. Yeah. I think. Yeah. Lybian his parents were immigrants refugees. I believe there was another receiver for Georgia. His name is escaping me. Jason if you can pull this before I do, you're superior torture DNA there. There was another one pretty recently. I'm trying to think of the school. Yeah. Bosnian football. Yeah. Yeah. But yeah, that's that's that's my favorite though. Because you get to say beyond the fantastic name Muhammad mass qua-, how will you forget Bill. I know I forgot Muhammed massacre. Best part about Muhammed methyl on rainy. Current by the way, it occurred who's immigrant refugee, but reading current Liberia ohling ball again hell, I know a lover at current. I like, you know, as like as a hated watching him. It gets my team. What champ Bailey. You're just like, oh, man. I can't hate you a lucky so much. Mark richt when he recruited or any current. He had to go to petty will be able to fill in the blank air. Mark richt had to go eat recurrence house. Any current is Liberian. And the first thing they did was feed him. What? With what? Yes. But but what to make somebody really nervous might not be used to that pallet. First thing hot sauce, like just got him to eat like straight peppers when he walked in like, you recruit my son. He's Margaret was like this, man. Did he flinch until he closed the door? Great market was never the same. And that's why that's why he went to Miami. What does call? That fact. No hot sauce down there. None the bland tasteless food scarlet lection of Miami. Well, this is gonna go on all week. You can donate. We'll have the post will send. We'll send everybody what they need to look at in order to contribute. I donated forty one dollars and fourteen cents today because that's what we beat or to by last year. It'll be worse this year able to also read the link reveal link for people who aren't looking at posts we can do that. I could do that. Yeah. Yeah. It is donate now dot network for good. That's F L the number dot org slash ADS. The s twenty nineteen democrat now dot network for good dot org. Slash ADS twenty nineteen after one who got. Oh, we had look we hadn't even going for a couple hours before our single donation record was literate by gentleman from Georgia Tech. And what I say obliterated people were saying, oh that he'd donate two hundred twenty dollars. Celebrate the long ago thrashing come. No. Did he donate, you know, fifty one dollars and forty eight cents twelve times? Once reverently your doubt, he took that fifty one forty eight score input zeroes after it for a five thousand one hundred forty eight dollar donation. Georgia tech. You are insane. Georgia Tech leads Michigan which the money canon has begun to wake up yet. But also, I don't know if this leader surmountable like this is this is a kind of commanding lead that no one has ever had a Michigan in in the history of this. So it will it will be interesting to watch them try and catch up as of like eight PM tonight when we stopped counting because my eyes were crossing Georgia Tech had seven thousand five hundred thirty six dollars, eighty two cents in donations trailed by Michigan at four thousand eight hundred sixty nine dollars and twenty seven cents. They were trailed by wash u in St Louis who had I believe eleven hundred dollars flat. Thank you wash. You. And they were trailed by everybody else. No other schools so far is over a thousand. Although there have been donations rolling in. We started recording. Y'all. We are a third of the way after day woman to our seventy five thousand dollar Bill. And at one hundred K, we get to make Spencer do something. Seriously, awful disgusting his body, or, you know, not okay? Don't look at you like that. Because I was the one who suggests an have made at the circle doesn't have to be horrible. And you laughed Spencer's about to do something very cool. We took a sensitive fast at two year. Previously goals such as what a fifty twenty five fifty though like it was like forty one thirty five forty last year. It was gonna be like fifty we got to almost seventy beyond. Reveals goals only in the five digits resulted in tattoos on Spencer's body. So six body mod to actually like have over in claws implanted in my or you might have to you might have to grow a stinger. Yellow jacket wings. See at least you went to Georgia Tech's you have one explicable tattoo on your person. That's true hundred as the neck tat realized really mean it what you're never gonna have a real job when you work. You're never true though. It's too late. Yeah. Let's go. Let's go like honeycomb pattern all around the neck. Pattern tribal armband tattoo like honeycomb with barbed wire. Reading in and out of it would be like, you realize this will be the only hard Georgia Tech debt to an anklet tattoo, like an ankle bracelet with little beach, arms dangling. You should get a Russell athletic Georgia Tech tattoo. Russell athletic team. The thing that made us laugh hardest Sarah wrestling gym teacher class at like fitness gear that everyone else's got like Nike Georgia Tech for years was like, Nope. Russell athletic was like Auburn, Georgia Tech. The last two Russell's schools. I got we're going to go back tat for you Spencer. All right. We're dako. Five five things. One is pretty large. It's literally the number one in the middle of your back above that. We're going to be a L that the Reggie ball jersey on your back. Oh god. I was well, I was terrifying. I was thinking that I could have like Calvin Johnson diving for a pass thrown by Reggie ball over on my shoulder and the ball would just be like eight feet off target yet. You have ball like the ball is on one leg and Calvin on the other leg. As you. Walk just comes close so far away glose again. Calvin Johnson for being a legend that is built partially out of my quarterback with so bad. I looked like a God get to those passes. How did you get so good in the NFL? This is nothing. At least effort gets the ball of my hands. He retired early because he was Alexander weeping after catching passes ready ball that were world left to conquer that in Detroit. He's like well the ultimate experience. Reggie mullet. At quarterback at the Detroit Lions the NFL franchise. What more could have every every day of my life will be better than all of those. Do we have full standings in front of us by chance? The full standings yet. What do you mean full standing? So by school. Oh, that's not yet. We're going to have those up on the leaderboard on ESPN in the morning because we slopped nations coming. I haven't had a chance to enter mine. Kansas state sixty Jacksonville state, fifty two. I haven't put season yet. Because I haven't quite decided what I wanna go for this nothing to celebrate. Right. I was fluffing do Texas in Roy's with like twenty grand of the last day. And I end up with it collie on my ass. Like just you being on to have her there. Have this remedy there? You gotta get a twelve, but you gotta lake impasse to crack a hundred bucks. I which they have not done if you get a AM tattoo. You gotta go to court to get approval to use like. Bevelled court. He means Aggie court not here. Aggie coordinates presided over by the dog like you get an tattoo on your blood, and they will literally sue your ass. I'm hope Aggie court has judged rip torn because rip torn did go to Texas. Am right? So like judge rip torn is a possibility. They're all everyone. So. Yeah, that's these are all terrible possibilities, but they're not in danger of happening so far because again, Texas, animus, failed crack a hundred bucks it would people on here. Like, Dr stock stockcar wall hundred eighty miles an hour. We got a lot of Becky Lynch energy's still to get. I think that's has good a segue. Any? Recover from here's another. Here's another Georgia techs in the lead. So we might have a first time champ. I segue, buddy. Good. You had the turn signal on and everything. Nice. Thank on at Lantin of you. Couple of we had a first time last night Kofi. Copa Kingston, one estimated that much happiness one night. Oh, my God though, so moving because like there's multiple connections calls football connection because biggie on new day is rep at the university of Iowa with his big Cornfed thighs. A dude has the biggest legs I've ever seen on a human being. And a spray berry high school connection. Correct. Former they read high school wrestling champs every woods, why sprayer high school specialists. Well, I I went there along with. A bunch of wrestlers. But also also me was special to us because you are special boy instead outstanding not here's your special. Cub county vocational wrestling program that produced a among other people buff Bagwell. Big boss, man. No, no, no, no, no, no, big boss man on us. I'm not letting that one slide. Ridiculous responsibility. He's he had nothing to do with our fine. Ho casual program ask for Mr. Tiffany. And he will not be able to produce it. Yeah. Yeah. Hey from around here. So. Yeah. Big emotions that did a tonight. In addition to that, which by the way, I will say this you complain about the length of a football game. If you like, okay, it's not it's not five and a half hours. It's not admittedly wrestlemanias way better than most four and a half hour football games on. Our seven and a half with with undercard. Yeah. Yeah. Like it was light outside when we started. And it was Monday when we were done. Yeah. Oh. Yeah. So like, no matter how grueling it might feel to those of you who are at this very moment. Watching Virginia play Virginia basketball. Just know that you didn't watch triple h faced, Batista. So you could always actually no that was better. Jinya donor today dropped five hundred bucks in honor of the average. He spends on each trip to vineyard vines. That. Record every year. That's that's majestic. Our also to represent Virginia's record. I did not ask the Texas A&_M roll through how much you spend on how much you spend picking up random duck blind at buggies. Jimbo thought you had money. Seventy million guaranteed guaranteed. The Lord himself Ramlet could not take that money away from you. But you repeat yourself come on how much can you spend on on new hair? To find out that is the space race. You know? Hey, did you notice did you notice in case, Texas, M, Texas, isn't okay? So JIMBO Fisher the space atop his head, which is balding gif of perpetually balding. And then always on the comeback. I don't think he's gotten anything to really settle up their Texas New coach now, it's a home setting battle. Have you seen Tom Herman? This off-season Ono is all the comeback trail. He's already shape Shifter. Tom TOMS got outside this, Tom. He's been recruiting in new areas of scout. It's become back. Y'all Texas back expand his territory if it comes through, and it's like Texas shaped up there. All stance tinny, Texas might not like that though, they might be like gauche something AM would do. It would be like he's got Texas in his forehead. It's a sign. The more scientific fan base, by the way in the more technical fan base more superstitious they are about football. This is canon. It's completely true in every single instance. We did have a first time champion. We might have a first time champion tonight and the basketball we could we could pretend like let's do this the champion of of basketball. Of course, that you folks who actually watch this game is the first time champion that school is fill in blank here. In post. We won't we won't actually remember to do this.

Do that space three. We'll just delete all this chatter in no deleted in post. Pause. I'm deleting nothing. So we got that. Right. I mean that was amazing cultures. All four of us to sit here going like can't believe we picked the right team to win. There will be a new champion. And the thing is that neither of them will have any clue what to do with it. I think. Here's the thing. We'll get if you've yet wins you'll get shots from Charlottesville that are your standard ACC students frolicking in the street. They'll be like street cams. They'll be they'll be people climbing on polls and stuff. Right. Do you think they have a single camera in Lubbock tonight? Do they have a poll? Climbed the tree. In lubbock. Do they have a street? Of people in a patch. Turt- never been to Lubbock. It's a lot like being to the moon. Yeah. That's what I expect that like we'll get pictures to three minutes after they be into. Right from the fucking Mars Rover. Just the ester with a cowboy hat. Don't fire. Those in the capsule evidence of water in Lubbock. Also, they're going to celebrate in a dry county. Any dry. It ain't dry tonight. If they win a level this this stipulation about an event that will be over by the time people listen to this down. That's a if that whichever of y'all lost and had to endure talk about you celebrating in your town. Sorry. All right. But also there's not that many on this podcast anyway. That did get us thinking though about like first time champs in football. Who would have been how they would react to that. There's like good list of bad list where on the bad list. Generally. If like, yeah. Would it be funny? If they want. He'll never it'll never happen. I mean, really it's very rare like same twelve fifteen teams always win championships and cultural, but just the last first time champ was wasn't Florida. I always forget might have been Florida. Oughta the also the last first time champion basketball as well. Y'all. Billions hail juicy Billy Donovan today, though. You're like Kay. I have I have things I want to say about those fascinating. Yeah. Set it up. Yeah. Okay. So Billy Donovan to the Oklahoma City thunder used to coach university of Florida Billy Donovan was being asked about Tom Izzo, Tom Izzo said that he felt like he needed to win two titles in order to really sort of feel validated. As a basketball coach need to win two championships. He was asked about this. Billy. Donovan was Billy Donovan's response was after I won my second one. I was wildly depressed. Like, I was depressed like meant nothing and a change nothing. I've never heard a coach say that never which. I think that I liked it as a culture or speaking more openly about this kind of thing. And I hope it leads to more people doing that. But I thought it was like I thought it was fascinating. I'm really glad said that. Oh stunning. Here the reporters go like. Yeah. One second one. It just I was depressed afterwards. Just hollow. Does if you chasing the because his point was he went onto something. That's like I think probably I think he took like the immediate swan dive into something that is pretty relatable. He's like, oh, this is about relationships, and this is about people, and this is about doing this every day and enjoying that. And you know, really sort of working to accomplish eight goal, right? But the titles kind of poison things for him. I thought about like he's at Saint times Meyer Ganor both like when entitled back back and kind of hundred with over urban was like oh God. Glauber? That's what that's what you become. Mucking to do that. We live across the street from each other. They did just in case you wonder whether on if it was in a position to do that look over at the urban coming at three of the boarding looking like it was going to die. Hey, this is a great life. This is fun. But yeah, heard coach actually say that today out loud. Also, can I just say what flex this is on Tommaso his much older than Billy Donovan and been coach. I don't think it was that don't know. Like, I genuinely think he's being honest, and I don't give a shit about Donna the, but that was accidental real moment. Yeah. No. I think he's I think he at one point like, you know, burned out something bad happen to be kinda got off track. Been said, hey, maybe I'll go coach Russell Westbrook. This seems less stressful than I'm gonna go roam the heartland the Harley the world spell. Jason who's your who's your first time champ in in college football that I guess like you wanna see either for the good reasons or the batteries. I think this fits both bills. Wisconsin. How many people would die? Yeah. Though. Wisconsin drinking prowess has been well documented on this program. We've talked frequently about the brandy caves. But a a real man we've seen enough. Yeah. Yeah. But like, how do they dial it up? I feel I feel like y'all might be more have more expertise here. Actually, if you've actually witnessed the brandy gave I think it would be up. Wrecks of Wisconsin everywhere with a focused implosion of Wisconsin ISM in Madison, right like Madison. It would be like Madison has fallen. No more. More. It's gone arson. Just it's not there. It's like the goose go blasts just gone just a big hole in the under up there. By the lake. There's just a lake and blast crater everywhere else, though, there'd be like outbreaks Wisconsin, there'd be like people like drinking twenty four packs sitting on top of city buses in cities that aren't even close to Wisconsin. Right. So gotta bet gotta badges t shirt and savannah right to sit on the bus like I drink out here legally because they just one. Yep. Squatters rights title. Yeah. Bookies law look so like what if they win? They win semi-final at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans tonight, Wisconsin fan, celebrating Norlin home. And then maybe they win the title game. I dunno Miami. You're something like that. I think they'll be a warning shot of Indianapolis will happen. They'll go to Indian ago of the USS. I mean, they can drink. Indie dry on accident. Yeah. No that that'll happen. Right. Like god. Burt down every steakhouse in the city all to bandmates now. Women ferment worthy. No models of setting. Wisconsin would also have no clue to none. That have. No. I don't think most teams would know what to do if they won that have no expectations. Right. Wisconsin would go like, oh, always went ten games. I guess we're gonna knock this out like sooner or later, and then it would just go back to you know, like eight four. Yeah, haven't they they've come pretty close to make the playoffs, and they not unrealistic right sort of backed into a few rows. But like they've they've had a few few chances. I think if I could see them I think they're one of those teams that again, I could see them. Phrase this very carefully accidentally backing into a national title game. And also the back of your garage right over your mailbox. I mean, if you can make a Rose Bowl at eight and five or whatever they were. Greatest greatest Rose Bowl team ever. What are we say about Wisconsin? Whatever they have a really good quarterback. They're awesome. Well, they got five star freshman right now. I overhead that I mean come on this worth like a outside shot. I was going to lean on. I was gonna lean another team that have no idea what to do is success, which would be Oklahoma's day. Like still water is like five thousand people it's tiny. It's not a big place. Not a whole lot of people Hutcheon they'd be real enthusiastic that have no clue to do with. It looked like in red dead the camp party like Jack, Jack is home. Let's have a little hootenanny play. Gunfire breaks out watch me dance. Dawg it's time leg like a person. School president. Crazy. I mean that would be delightful. I want it to happen for you, pokes, you know. But like it's going to be hard to explain that many people in black jeans cowboy boots, you know, like, that's that's not something America's used to. Write. But went crazy over a dang trap song this week that had some country in it. Yeah. I was just about to say the black jeans might become in back off might be the next crest of this way. Oklahoma state riding the movement to a national title. And again, this is something that almost happened. I mean Xs tech is power to a title game. They play they play the song the play the old town road. Like they were. They were an early adopter. They'll become impossibly powerful. Again, they might be losing it basketball as we speak. So. Who who who knows definitely not us? No. But Oklahoma state almost made like they were right there. Yeah. They like if in a fair and just universe. They would have made title game twenty eleven. Yes again. Sorry for sorry. Sorry to everyone were disappointing left and right by mentioning things that hurt. I know look, although I will say this as painful as that would have been can you imagine Brandon Weeden against the team? He would have faced in the national title game. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe that's better left alone. Maybe maybe you fell off. And you miss that wrong on the ladder. The Lord thought you'd gone high enough. Are you saying minor league baseball pitchers versus NFL defensive secondaries in colleges? A bit of a mismatch. Listen to saying Brandon Weeden Brandon Weeden every pass was low moving taxes, and eventually someone was going to hell one of those. Okay. The maybe three four seven of. No, he wasn't going to scramble out of any trouble health at. Holly mentioned west Virginia's gonna hurt you too much. Go on. As I as a team that could win national title this year. No, no, no. In the future just like again because they've come like within a couple of like degrees. Yeah. Several times not just the one that everyone thinks of only they've they've come. Yeah. Domain. They've been right there. Like, not even you can go back to the eighties. You know, they were a national. They were listed as an additional finalist once once. All right. That would be that would be the Missouri way Marc Bulger ninety eight season I believe which by the way that team flames as a fantastic team delightful. Also, you get eight zero a lot. Excellent college football painful for me now because we got kind of. Rebuilding situation tap, their can we can we not again, if it happened in B's tackler, I think West Virginia would be okay with it because they would just be like. Well, yeah. Told you told you we could do it like, Oklahoma state. I think they just be like, really? We we one. Okay, cool. I hope T-Bone fires Gandhi. The second happens. Dickey long enough like fire him onstage at midfield trophy presentation. You're gonna buddy. Israel's up and he's like just recites his record against the Sooners. Sorry. Didn't get it done bedlam. Again this year. It's one loss. We can't tolerate better. You know? Oh, man. Let's see here. Let's see here. Well, our beloved Arizona state is on the list. I really I don't know. Hey buddy, we got playoffs. Now who else who else we want in their old hand NFL coach in the playoffs? We won the Super Bowl. Like, I just picture like OSU fans. It's like skepticism WVU fans. It's like well fuck and finally ASU fans like do they notice like that? Like, it's January there at the pool. Right. The bars open. It's it's it's it's it's it's one week in January. They're working on their tain. You know, how long that celebration would be though at ASU years. Year seven of the championships. Like Obama celebrates title for like hours, Clemson celebrates it for months ASU is just like football is cancelled for like six years. We're leaving with the title Bill. You guys went one and eleven this year. I know in coal. Yeah. That's the attitude. I would like to adopt. That's the level of caring that I would like to have don't do this slow decline. Wherever gets nervous about you lose in one game. Right. Don't do this thing where you get a dynasty rolling. And then with great tension. Wait for the first crack to appear, right? That's when actually kinda comment on this Atlanta. United won a title last year the city's first title that I've cared about. Oh young. Decades decades, actually, not four decades. But you know, what I'm saying? And this year, they're kind of bad, and I don't give shit at all. We're still the reigning champs care's terrible. So ASU just take up this. Did it right? They had like that replace a manager the manager and the manager left and they hired the least likable person on the planet. Right. Like, oh, we're fire. This guy. There's no way he's going to have this job. So don't even pretend to get committed to it. Yeah. He's gonna work a system in. Or whatever it was an emotional. It was like they were building up a bulwark in advance against what's eventually going to be an emotional firing. Feelings to work through. So it's like is this a pre firing. Preowned follow the professional world. I think. I think that other one that at least, you know, if we're going to count the modern era, I count the monitor. Aggies. Oh, Jeff sag Ren's going to have some things to say about this. That's fine. You've incurred the wrath of the Dunkel index are.

Like that's talking seventies onward aggies. You do not exist. You know, if it any point we can start making Bob Cousy type jokes about your skill players. It's not happening, right? Crazy legs Hirsch, actually Elmore. Here's actually go look at his films. Crazy. That's why called him crazy legs. The name is what I'm saying. But yeah, with like if your last one that you're out in his nineteen thirty nine need avatar. Because that's that's goes somewhere beyond stolen valor, title, thirty nine. Okay. Cool. How many nobody been to the boom yet? Do we want to say a nineteen seventy as end earlier does not count. I'm okay, I'm okay with that. Okay. Okay. Let's real quick run through the schools that no longer have national titles do that ripple Princeton by by Princeton later outta here. Michigan you have one. And as a legitimate one completely legitimate fair. Michigan Michigan segregated for integrated forever ago. We're not making fun of Michigan. Pitt you're down to one. Let's see Harvard. None Minnesota known as right pan gone. Michigan state by Cal by Cornell, Illinois out, you're all out. I wha sorry, by the way, I'm going to go back to say that if you said Illinois national title in any year gas lighting me that did not happen. I will they're a great in the post World War One period. Let's see army not a single in the entire team. Lafayette, not UL, Lafayette, raging cages, you can keep all your national titles. The other Lafayette, I don't know how to pronounce that from up north at doesn't matter. Ole miss. Yes, sir. Yours are definitely gone extra gone, this problematic. Not a single donor from the state of Mississippi today. Iman y'all news travel there yet can't you? Can't you get catfish throw in a couple of bucks? Chicago Columbia TCU Stanford Arkansas Boston College out something called center. Ari right. Yes, entry. Interim Senator Sondra Dartmouth Detroit Kentucky Maryland navy Oklahoma state who somehow claims nineteen forty five because the coaches poll put in a retroactive trophy for your that was already insanely established cynically nineteen forty five on behalf of the Manhattan project. Yeah. Sorry, sandy all national title enter there. That's talking. Rutgers claims half of eighteen sixty nine even though they were outscored on the year by the only other football team on earth. Syracuse you're gone UCLA. You're gone again. Not all of you are to blame for football, not counting before the year nineteen seventy but some of you are so you're all taking we're punishing the whole class here. Hottie taty. Want? Some breaking donation news since we started recording. Kansas state has crossed the one K Mark with a single donor hundred bucks a month for the next months, and we have dueling LSU and Bama five hundred dollar donations that are back to back. I don't know what sick game y'all plan the police keep it up. Please continue for once smashmouth competition between LSU in Alabama's seems to be benefiting. Everybody like see this rematch. I like the game as lake put in a score that will make a rival mad and bam on Ellis. You're just like smashing the big button. I think it's five hundred to represent their record against one another in twenty eleven. Yes. Okay. Good hammer you try another booth hammer. I was thinking about using hammer that's Alabama LSU and they play just like it's like Pokemon. But with only one thing. Yeah. Nothing, but a level one the you're you're Pokemon hasn't learned shit. Yeah. It's just like like too drunk. Scottish dudes fighting each other headbutting he's in point. It's very effective deployment deployment years pot. Pikachu? This was I am is the one that the national title would be least sane. I like, and I mean in the kind of light. Yeah. Dad, just went into his panic room for the next three days. He's got a TV in there. He's got enough beef jerky last him for at least seven months Scott sewage filtration water all that lined up there. We'd remote we might not see him again. I'm just picturing the long run reaction. I'm aware. They're not rival. I'm aware of the the horns wouldn't even notice the result work knowledge if. Like what the fuck would. They do. What would they do if they were the do teams in the title game? How would that were that ever talk about it? I know I'm not aware of another game. I thought the big twelve championship we declined to play this game. It's beneath our brand. We don't we don't need them. Do also being beaten donations now by date. Also, everyone else nationally. Well, ended went to do. You're not good at Dayton. I mean, come on like your most famous grads like before he became never most sinister presidents drove his wife around on dates, but other men. Richard yet on that Nixon. Nexen? Yeah. Nixon white Nixon was like college. I think or high school like like Nixon was like so you wanna go out. She's like you wanna drive me on my dates with other guys Nixon was like what the fuck. In this work. Again, president yet worked. He just wore down. I will be a president what kind of president? A very good Nixon. Thank you, the second voice that you can do. I can do Ricky Gervais Nixon does does not. As a person of fall. So all evil Richards. All. It only do Email Dix. Isolate that out audio folks the full cast out of context account. Just imagine though, by the way, like everyone else nationally, what have to go through the same process. We went through eleven hey aggies are coming on board. Well, it's examine their unique culture up close. This is our medical weird. And this is like really some like Colonel Kurtz up the river. So you guys have have when you say dog church just not a medic dog church string. Yeah. Yeah. Dog church with really good barbecue. And you have guys who looks like janitors leading the jeers. Thank things like what? But not like. Okay. Not like normal, janitors. Like DisneyWorld, janitors, crisp coverall. Jan. Nineteen forties. Milkman? I was kind of look like the order two orderlies at a sinister movie about mental illness and from the fifties sixties right like nearly appropriate. When a guy got too high on Reefer in get into the jazz scene and the head to take him to the yell leaders. Exactly here. Come the yell leaders who are like sharp? Hey, here comes all. All. You're coming with us, sir. We'll get you clean. Let them take me. Of course, if you were from Texas, and they showed up you'd be like, I don't know who's taking me to the looney bin. I don't know his objecting me, I don't see anything happening. I don't even care. These guys aren't real. This that is the fan base. I wanna see exposed like on a national level for people be like, oh, man. They do some really interesting things. Then like a week after this limits exposure, everybody go, this is you kind of just have to go with it. Don't let it back. Because there's a difference longhorns. Where from Texas, Texas, we're from college station, those things one includes the other on the board. Look at Harvard on the board. Finally, made a valuable contribution to society first contribution to society, finally Harvard useful at last weight ago, Harvard, flare Connecticut, amend a another first time champ. Yes, I have one. I have one more same. Okay. They might be the same Washington state university. That does not mine, which basically means basically the same as Wisconsin except for substituting a slate but of alcoholism for just natural weirdness. I said slight I'm not insulting. I I know you you you you emptied the plane, no Yelm, t the Auburn bar, you're not Wisconsin. But still I'm not I'm not sure you on your alcoholism here. But replacing it with a little bit of weird is all. I don't think they would. I think it'd be fine. Like if I wanted Ashwell title like what is was before the national title of joined up to eleven every bottle in the house empty and people rolling dumpsters downhill on campus. The thing that really happened on fire. What would happen if they wanna national title same thing that happens is our average Saturday night. Like, I would you know, it'd be fine. It also kind of a Lubbock affect here as well where it's basically quarantined from the rest of society, exactly. So yeah, I don't think that would be too much. There wouldn't be like a real loud noise. Can I give you one that would just be? People who would not know how to act in the celebration. They would not know how to handle success. They would let their expectations get so sky high that they would immediately slipped into delusions of grandeur kion that imagined. Even by Arkansas fans. What? Yeah. Yeah. We'll buddy DEA, right? Bring that pony on back to the state. You wanna know where I'm going? You wanna know where I'm going with when I say really actually this terrible. You'll see like people people who if that coach one national title he'd be fired in two years. Easy. Okay. Not a danger with their current head. Coach. South carolina. Title. Oh god. Yeah. Maybe that's never gonna happen. I mean, they have they have one division title in the program's history. So are you the AC they won the ACC in nineteen sixty nine? Maybe they should go back there. Then Cal there you go. Oh, they they got it in the opposite of the buzzer. Should've saved that for two years dummy. At the negative one. Mark on the clock. Game hadn't started yet. Like happens happens to the best of us at also to Auburn. You know, like the the program has an illustrious history. But one entry and the Wikipedia page as Cybele Newton joins the six hundred club. I mean, I say this with all due towards L Newton as a player he was real fun. If he is a large part of your programs history. It's not a good history is not the great if they won. They would have no idea what to do. None. And by that. I mean, like we say, oh, they have no idea. What to do? They just have no idea what to do happiness nano. They would assume they'd be like they would have like motor confusion. Yeah. Muscle. Memory problems. People drive into trees like my hands. Don't work. Can't we? Like people who their delusions about that program. It'd be like it's time it last would assume there on some sort of plums trajectory where they were going to compete with Alabama every single year. And yes, up Carolina to beat Alabama that one time I don't forget that because it was funny and involve several amazing players including yes, Stephen gercy. Man. We're right back to men with mustaches. You should never run away with. Came full circle, didn't it. But South Carolina, South Carolina, would assume like oh man are EROs here. We will we will reign forever in two years. Coach would be torched gone co to be like I'm going to go to the jets by. So we'll must champ this cushion the jets. Oh god. We'll must champ New York City. More like must jump. Kidding? That man will be God. It's the borrows other still survives. It is the New York style pizza place still there shutdown flow cat has a word shuts. Folkets like, why are you even speaking this into reality? Might happen. Just to confuse well must coaching four to game somewhere against Bill Belichick. Bella checks eighty. Yeah. South Carolina would be. It's not going to be an absolute flaming disaster.

Pump The Brakes

"The. Welcome to the solid. Verbal. For me. I'm a man on forty. I've heard so many players. They why wanna be happy. You wanna be happy for day eight state. Thai? Welcome back to the soliver boys girls. Money is tight Hildebrandt joining me over there in be a tearful New York City, a man, Dan, Rubenstein, sir. How are you? Fresh off of putting the solid baby into the bath quarry. He is now out of the bath and with Jodie with an eye, but I feel refreshed myself, even though it was just I just external for me, by the way, we should we should point this out here in. Yeah. Please tell the kind folks listening wherever they are all my gosh. About your bath setup for the little man, the bath setup. Oh, it is patriot league related, I guess could could transition. So I am just learning all of these things as a very stupid new father. But you just pour water over them when they're in the bathtub in like the contraption that holds them in place. And I am using the Lehigh hike up that I purchased. I think the morning of your wedding that I used for many years to drink, my cold brew and ice coffee out of, and now it has been retired. And it is now I guess the solid baby taking very patriot league bad is the patriot league circle of life. It is. And it it does get wet. Yeah. There are there's lots skin, and it's a it's a patriot league drum and fife bath. Welcome back to the show. We've been doing QNA shows the last three weeks. So the first time we did it in the month of may was you asked me. Than me, asking you with a weird sort of role playing bent two hundred people. And then last week, we had questions from their baller hood out there today, what we're doing is going back to an old concept and by old. I mean, a year old we did it once previously can, we change the name we can absolately change the name, but let me give some apparent acts for where we're headed with this last year? The show that we did it may have been the first week of June. If I recall, we called it are we sure that dot dot dot in the whole premise behind. It is you and I are going to take some cultural topics ones that really play into conventional wisdom, and we're going to challenge those beliefs. We're gonna stress test them a little bit. And see if for sure it is something that we are sure of or not now, the show last year was titled. Are we sure that and you express it interests a couple days ago? And now again, just seconds ago to change the name to something else is. Apparently, like Bill Simmons phrase and I mean he don't wanna be. He uses didn't invent it for other people who have used that. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, we could pump the brakes pump the brakes it could be college football ish with after further review or upon further consideration or I kinda like pumping the brakes I love pump the brakes use that four times a day, and we can. Yeah, you probably are PHD level with your corporate lingo. Oh, yeah. Buddy. You are you what, what was the one you told me yesterday blocking and tackling blocking and tackling. What is that? It refers to the Muendane elements of corporate life. The busy work seat work if you will. So paperwork calls conference calls meetings blotting to be through never heard it. I had to ask somebody the first time I heard brass, tacks. Let's get down to brass tacks. I don't where we going. We can go off line. We go soup to nuts. We can go thirty thousand foot view. What? Ever you wanna do should we do an entire episode like right before we begin? I don't know how we're going to preview this year. I think we should mix it up. Should we just preview the big ten as if we are in a Monday morning meeting? I could absolutely do that. Okay. So let's pump some breaks and actually determine whether or not we should just hit the gas. You know perhaps riding the brakes is not the move. That's the off season. So there's a lot of stop and start you have news. You have spring ball. You have recruiting and signing day and coaches moving around. So there is there is action, but then there's no action. So there's a lot of break pumping. Anyway, urban Meyer announces he's the coach in waiting at USC. There's all those stories coming and going. So I like pump the brakes. So here's the only issue with this. Yeah, we should explain what this actually is. We will explain what this is. I had my hypothetical sound all queued up ready to go. I don't know if you can get me a break screeching sound while. I'm doing some of our set up here on tonight's podcast. If you could put that in the FOX, in the in the back of your mind thing to yourself, should we be pumping the brakes? No, I'm saying I need do. Oh, you Saudi element. Okay. Tonight show that put it in the folder. I'll see if I can spin it up needed wave, though, Dan, you need it in a way. Okay. Here is what we are doing this evening again to rehash. We are taking college football conventional wisdom for the coming twenty nineteen season. And we are stress testing. We're gonna look at some things that we have come to accept as fact for better or worse, and deciding should we pump the brakes, should we go pedal to the metal on these ideas? Are we willing to accept those under the big tent? It is solvable podcast, roll through the stop sign no brakes. If you are listening for the first time you can find the show at solid. Verbal dot com, you can also find us out there on social media sowed. Verbal is available via Facebook. The Twitter Instagram were also out there on read it, we've got a sub read it that's created by our loyal. I almost did it again. And said lawyer ballers, we got an Email from lawyer ver- ballers at. Got a bunch. A lot of warriors who also listen to the show, who are ballers and loyal at that shot or sub read it started by some of those loyal fans. Read at dot com slash arts slash solid. Verbal and don't forget, I know we keep reminding people, but if you are on the website, solvable dot com sign up for the newsletter. You know, we're getting into June here, we got some stuff that we're cooking in the Laborde Tori, you might wanna be among the first to find out about that stuff. You can get the newsletter of intent delivered to your inbox. We won't spam you. We just use it to parrot out some of our more important things, and finally wherever you could find a podcast, defined salver, but we're always, adding our show to whatever directories may exist out there in the wild wherever you can find your podcast. He could download the show and we will be here all throughout the offseason. Once we get a little closer to the start of the college football season, will switch it up from once a week to twice a week just to make sure you. Air minimum twice a week bare minimum twice week to be fair just to make sure that you've got enough college football content flow in through those ears. Odd. Check the check the dropbox, check the dropbox. Okay. Yeah. While I'm out. Yes. Let me explain this up our first topic. So over the course of the off season, there's just a ton of college football conventional wisdom, like, for instance, Saturdays are amazing. I don't think I can question that, that is something that we have accepted as fact or near fact, what we're doing today with today's exercise is saying is this true, though, this is what we've sort of accepted to be the universal college football truth narrative wise, player wise program wise, but should we take a moment and question it as the college football. Scientists we are isn't it true that if you're supposed to get a PHD you have to defend your dissertation, right, you submit it, then it's questioned by your peers and you have to defend it. Or if you're doing some sort of experiment, it has blind double blind. Whatever it is there has to be an element of challenging I probably use the blind term incorrectly. But there has to be you have to. Redo your experiment to see if you can get the same results over and over again. So there's an element of questioning things. That's what we're doing here today as college football. Scientists does the sound load and is is a good to go. I've got us so the very first topic we have here. Yeah. Do we want to pump the brakes? Spot. Right. That's gonna like it. Yeah. On the idea that Manny Diaz. Oh, was the right hire for the Miami hurricanes now. Okay. This was a pretty big story. Give me the case for this is a pretty big story. So the case for many as that he's got a familiarity with the area. Right. He's from -solutely Miami, didn't go to Miami, went the Florida state. But right, he's a Miami guy he was coaching. They're very recently as a defensive coordinator under Mark richt was actually hired to be a head coach at temple, only had that child for about three weeks before Mark richt retired from Miami and the canes hired him back. He's got a ton of experience as a defensive coordinator has been a DC for about thirteen years as had a bunch of taxes today state. Sure. So people know many as he's long been thought of as a very bright, young mind in the. Sport of college. Football's got a lot of passion is seems very good recruiter. There's a lot to like there that is the case for the case against is that he's never been a head coach before rand the case against his certainly that many D as setting into a situation where Miami, I know we've joked about losing the swagger, but Miami is not what Miami used to be. And we I that might go number one overall. Fantasy things wise, Miami losing the swagger, if you are Tai-chi to junior, your time mcshea, and you're projecting. Outs Miami trying to find. It's lost swagger. Yes. Wag. Are you? Is it a top four pick? So one of our first two pixie, do you think it's more of a reach because whatever happens during the season happens that adjusts the story line of trying to recapture the swag might be more of an off season fantasy thing. I love that so much God. Because and will will put this online. We'll put it on Twitter, our dear, dear friend, Bruce Feldman wrote a story about Manny Diaz trying to recapture the loss, Miami swag. And I did the research and you could argue that Miami has been swag, less more often than it has been swag, full, and you can look, if you look up algal VIN Randy, Shannon or Mark richt or Butch David, you just keep going back. They're all trying to capture the swag, and you look and interviews with recruits, and it's just like we're going to bring that swag back. There is more attempting to bring swag back in Coral Gables than there is. Than there are days filled with swag. And by his, I limited research, what I have when we say swag, we mean swagger, for the people out there who will call us on it. But you got the gist of what we're saying that is the case, both for and against many the as Dan. How do you feel about this higher just from a thirty thousand a few, will, I haven't thought about it a lot, but it's an interesting time for Miami, since Florida's still undergoing changes, Florida state, you know, not a super hot start to Willie Taggart in terms of raising the profile all the Rhone in the state of Florida, the ACC has one clear, major power, so it is a good time to not be, you know, in a sea full of really destructive forces. And so I like the timing. I like Manny Diaz. I think he's bright. I think he'll recruit pretty well. I'm curious to see what happens in the short term at quarterback. I don't think take Martell is going to be necessarily. The answer. And that has really been what has dogged Miami recently is getting two, three good games from somebody whoever it is Malaysia. Most recently. And then it going sideways. And so, yeah. Quarterback to me as a huge deal and I know it's more difficult to find really good quarterbacks and Florida because of the level of defensive competition in high school hearts, develop in Florida. So that's why Miami has gone, you know, Brad broadcast from right by where my parents are in southern California. That's why they have to go out of state. So I think there are challenges with that job that are not obvious and people just think oh, south Florida. The load up with talent will be great. Maybe it's a for sure. Winnable division given where those teams are at. But my only real question is, is he in the back of his mind organized on a daily hourly every minute basis, you know knowing what's going on in the program having a vision because to me saying he's for Miami. He gets it. Yes. See, that's yeah. Where I was going to go with this. That's why I'm pumping the brakes on this feels too much sister. USC school ish that worried about that angle, which doesn't necessarily mean he will fail. But it means he has to outgrow that angle getting the guy who knows the culture, the whole welcome home thing that I know we've had fun with in the pet Mark richt just was welcomed home. Just your and Scott frost was welcomed home, and they tried to welcome. Harvey Jeff Brom home to like I get the angle. I understand why bringing Jim Harbaugh home to Michigan's a big deal, and that Super Bowl coach different the alumni. Right. I get that whole angle. There is definitely a place for it. But I think it's overrated. I realized why really overrated. I didn't use to feel that way. But then I did the show for twelve years. I really feel like it's an overrated quality right at. A lot of fans latch onto when it comes to head football coach. I like mad at the as I think he's forward thinking he's certainly not rooted to any like old school mentality when it comes to coaching the football team. But we we still don't really know what he is. He's very much unknown quantity, some of his stops defensive coordinator have gone better than others. So as stock has sort of risen and fallen over the course of time here of the late the last decade, or so I'm pumping the brakes on this just because we don't we don't know a lot about what that team is gonna look like we don't know if he's going to be able to bring that swagger back. We know he's got a passion for that area, Florida and certainly for the school that is Miami. I think is father was the mayor of my or something like that. There's a lot of miliary there, but I believe, and I'm confirming this as we speak. I believe both Butch Davis and Jimmy Johnson went to Arkansas. Yes. So it's are like their coaching careers. A lot of it took place in Texas, and Oklahoma and Rushmore in coral rials. So you don't need to be from their building winner. Dennis Erickson definitely isn't. Yeah. Let's pump the brakes ideas. I hope it works. College football's more interesting when Miami is interesting, and I would love truly if somebody could bring the swagger back, but he's just so much of an unknown quantity at this point. I think given the here's what I will say, given the fact that it broke down with Mark richt as late as did in the coaching, carousel, the factory able to go out and get many as away from temple was a coup in that sense. It was absolutely the correct the right move who Elsa gonna get at that juncture. It's a tough spot to put any program in. Here's the other thing that I, I think can be both over and understated Miami just hired a new temple coach. Like if you get rid of the connections. Right. They pipeline. No, no. I'm not. I'm not referring to algal. I'm not that that's not what I'm talking about. Okay. Damn think about a group of five school who has had some success and. They hire a new coach whatever I don't know what example I could give right now like who is a decent group of five school. That just hired an up and comer that has had decent success. I'll give it some thought or you can give it some thought, as I'm talking, it was plain as day that Manny Diaz has worked up to the point where yes you should be given a shot as a head coach on a somewhat major college football level, and it made sense. Oh temple temple hired, Manny is he is met all made sense to everybody. He was a new temple level head coach who has suddenly without coaching. Jumped up a pretty significant deal. Yeah. Right. And so that to me is. Curious that he this might be too big a leap to quickly and that we might look back and maybe we'll have a great, if it doesn't work out of Miami. He'll have a great, you know, second stage of his career, and he'll look back and say, you know what? I, I don't know if I was ready for it in that moment, like it would have been nice to get to three years of reps at a group of five or drink wits kinda thing, yes. Yes. And I don't know. I mean many has been a little bit more high profile at Texas and Mississippi State Miami. So he has wherever higher experience. Yeah. But yes, if ally drink wits was hired at app state, and then all of the sudden Washington state, if Mike Lee to left, like, oh, we really want he lied, during quits like oh, wow. That's but okay, hop hop. And that, that might be something that comes into play. All right. Let's move on. Let's go over to another one. I'm not pumping breaks. But I am going through the yellow cautiously. Are we? He pumping the brakes. On Jalen hurts fitting in at Oklahoma now. Okay, if we must rehash just for the kind folks smart folks, that certainly listened to the show. Jalen hurts is transferring over from Alabama. He went twenty six two in an Alabama uniform as starting quarterback, albeit running a much much different offense. Certainly as we saw with Cuyler Murray last year. And as we saw that Oklahoma program ramp up on offense under Lincoln Riley. There's no shortage of playmakers. The question for them will be along the line this year. They lose bunch of guys. Right. We did ask I believe in this very same show virtually the same question about Cuyler Murray in two thousand eighteen sort of that we're asking about Jalen hurts now at home. The fit. Is it worth the emotional energy, where do you come down? Jalen hurts. So I can very clearly see a world in which he succeeds pretty electrically. But there though the nagging thing to me is Kylie Murray, who we had in this position last year. Calamari had time years plural in Lincoln Riley system mental reps practices film. Whatever Baker Mayfield years, and was already at Texas Tech in a very not similar. But, you know, there are some Larry's system whereas what Jalen hurts is used to doing offense can be pretty different than what Oklahoma has done, not to say Oklahoma won't fit their offense to, to take advantage of his dual dual threat strengths, but that has me curious since the, the record is not great of quarterbacks immediately jumping into a system as a grad transfer. And succeeding now there aren't always quarterbacks who have been successful. Jalen hurts making that move. So I understand that. In the fact that Oklahoma's a Heisman factory. But the lack of time the lack of comforts, it is worrisome because there were certain advantages that Jalen hurts enjoyed with Alabama's defense and didn't have to score a ton of points to, to put together a twenty six to record right? No Oklahoma's defense. Got score a little more than what the threshold is Alabama. And he will have playmakers as you've noted. But I, I am far less. Sure. And I was not terrifically sure of Cuyler Murray last year. I'm far less sure about Jalen hurts because of what we saw him do in the biggest games for Alabama, even when he won. No, it was not always the prettiest thing, and I have it up right here. Jalen hurts was the twenty ninth best quarterback in twenty seventeen against ranked teams with yards per tempt. If that's a metric you you care about in twenty sixth against ranked teams ratings wise, so statistically, fine. I just he had so many advantages at Alam. Obama. And as soon as a better thrower came along. He looked twenty times better through the air. Yeah. The good news. The good news for Jalen hurts his regular season. Schedule is a much lighter lift at Oklahoma wrecked. Then it ever was at Alabama as I look through it here, it's a while before you get to a notable defense is probably in all reality. Not until we get to the Red River shootout in middle of October. Bryan, Texas until we're talking about this team playing what I would consider a real defense. Okay. The big twelve has this reputation it's not so much defensive conference like the SEC, and that will bode well for Jalen hurts, if only to get his feet wet in the first half the season. And I think that will help him alone. That learning curve, your point though is very valid. He has not had the mental reps the. Actes reps of Kyle Murray from a great garbage time calamari a couple years ago. Yeah. I do like the fact that he's very mobile in that should help him certainly got playmakers around him. But the line's going to be a little sketchy to start until gels. I think Lincoln Riley will find a way to bring it all together. I think they will find a way to make him fit in. He may not fit in a Heisman sense. Like we saw with Cuyler Murray, he may not fit in a Heisman sense, like you saw Baker Mayfield, but there's certainly enough talent around him. And I think Lincoln Riley is bright enough of a college football mind than he can tailor a system. He's had all offseason to think about this. He can tailor in offense of system that will work for Jalen hurts and will emphasize what he does. Well, my bigger Mushin about Oklahoma is what L extremes does on the defensive side. That's not the question here. Right. As we move forward now into preview season. That's the question I'm going to be asking more. I'm gonna ask about that offense of line. Sure. But my first question is, whether or not Alex Grinch can bring along that defense the way he's brought defenses like Washington state along in the past. I've in Texas Tech will be a good measuring stick at the end of September for Jalen hurts because that defense has come a long way. Now, I think it's being run by the old Ahah sued offensive coordinator Patterson. It's come a long way, and it is probably okay. And that I think will give us he should have a good game, not a great. Everybody should have a good game against Texas Tech. I'm curious to see that as a measuring stick because Houston's out the KOTA UCLA you see, on the road, kind of interesting. The defense has been kind of in shambles the last couple years. He those two games UCLA on the road and Texas Tech. I think will be quite interesting to see what the potential bar is for Jalen hurts, but yeah, the Texas game by mid October will be huge. That'll be the measuring. Stick art. Where do you wanna go next in? Let's go to okay. I like this one and I think that there's a lot to talk about and unpack here. Are we can we pump breaks? Are we positive? Are we sure that whatever after further consideration can Ed ores Ron provide something tangible for LSU that les miles couldn't okay? Get that sound in their ahead, please. I this, this is the because LSU fans are very quick to like, what, what, what, what, what, what, what? No. I like at ours. Ron like doors Ronald lot near the end of his tenure less miles was losing three games a year. And he had it was it was doing so in confusing manner at times the the late game situations were pretty problematic and that culminated with the Auburn situation. I wanna say twenty sixteen then at ours Ron becomes the interim. And I think a lot of people have rallied behind him. And they were a ridiculous game away from winning ten regular season games last year that crazy overtimes game against tech CENA. So. Tangibly speaking right now. Ed ores Ron is not necessarily getting great passing. It's fine. I don't think it's anything demonstrably better or worse than where less miles was and inconsistent passing games. He's lost three games. He has there. I don't think Elsie was this is my correction from before they scored a touchdown in Baton Rouge against Alabama since twenty fourteen a single touchdown and that was in the first quarter in twenty fourteen. So it's been a while it's been eleven quarters if my math holds up so that is worrisome. And so- tangibly speaking, I think Edwards, Ron needs to take LSU ten regular season wins. And until that happens is, is he liked barrel chested less miles just in. Just in terms of bottom line. I understand the organization. I understand that coaches may have more confidence in him running the program day today that, you know, he is evolved into this berry impressive head coach. But when do they get their news ackman burger? When do they get that one year jamarcus Russell, when do they get above average quarterback play at the same time as great defense? Great recruiting confidence from the coaching staff confidence from the administration. Boosters is is there anything else other than ten wins that would provide a tangible improvements light shining on at ours? Ron, that is such a good question, Dan. And here's the sub question tie, and you can answer that one first. But what, what is the biggest perception change with one win, like, is it going from five and seven to six and six? Like, oh my God. This is a totally new and improved team. Because all of a sudden, they're going to the Meinicke car careful, right? Or is it going from nine to ten is going from eleven to twelve which obviously undefeated before a potential conference championship? Is it going from seven barely bowl? Eligible to eight comfortable where to you is the biggest perception shift with one win so answer the first question first. And then the second okay so first things first, I'm gonna I'm gonna talk about something that took me by surprise a year ago, and that was Joe borough. Now, when Ed ores you're on took over at LSU. I remember distinctly you and I talking about the perception problem that we had with LSU and it was that the offense hadn't matured Moore hadn't evolved to a point where it was good enough to get to the heights, that LLC fans wanted it to get to right. They brought in Joe bro. Now not saying Joe boroughs Peyton Manning, not even say. Hey, Joe, borough is Cooper Cooper manning Cooper. Manning, okay? Joe Pearl was pretty good and the status fine. The stats aren't reflective of how big he came up in some really key spots throughout the course of this LSU season. LSU finished. And this is a metric I think we both like thirty fourth nationally in offense of points per drive. So that's a pace adjusted stat. That's pretty good. So that's an improvement. I think the fact that they've got him back now that will help solidify the offense hopefully move it forward. But that's, that's the biggest issue I have fifty year before. I had, let's say with LSU under Ed Orduna on can't he give them something tangible that les miles did. Now, if you are using one win to get to ten irregular season winds as your bottom line barometer. It's been a while. It's been since twenty twelve since LSU won ten games in the regular season. I think it helps to get double digit wins in the regular season. No doubt. I also don't think that, that's the proper measuring stick the SEC west constantly measures itself against Alabama concierges. That's the unfortunate thing. That's, that's the unfortunate thing if at ores Ron is winning ten games almost anywhere else. He's a Saint the problem is that they're in the same conference in the same side of the same conference as the Alabama crimson tide. And oh, by the way, pre much every other team on that side of the conference has also gotten a lot better. They've also found ways to upgrade their program. Looking at you Texas AM, I don't know, if that ten win Mark means as much as it used to, and that's unfortunate for ores, Ron. He has steadied the ship. He's won nine games each of the last two years in the regular season. I think that's a good step in the right direction. But can he give them something tangible that les miles didn't I I'm looking at less miles career record right now. Now granted he was at LSU along time, but he did win a national championship. And he lost another what I wonder is and will never know, but we've seen this in other divisions other conferences, whether it's, you know, Texas, Oklahoma, whether it's, you know, Mack Brown is the best modern coach Texas head. And Bob stoops happens to also really best coach Oklahoma has had, and it just all happened at the same time, or, or Jim Harbaugh taking Stanford to these crazy heights. But chip Kelly, having Oregon a little bit better. And that's this constant thing. Those are much shorter lasting is, what does the SEC west look like if Alabama is merely great and not all time, elite excellent. Right. What happens if it's just a year over year ten in tuition Bama program? Like it's a Blake SIMS Alabama program, all due respect to Blake SIMS or Jake coke, those kind of like that you're not getting top top quarterback level and maybe there's defensive lapses like they had. Against, you know, it was twenty ten South Carolina or something like that. Ole miss those past couple years, where that just happens a couple times a year. And what, what is that? How does that change the less miles career? Arc. How does that change things with Kevin someone? How does that change things with, I mean, Dan Mullen was gonna leave for Florida, whenever he possibly could leave for Florida and Hugh freeze, nothing, you know, his departure doesn't really have anything to do with Alabama. But how does that change things around the SEC if Alabama is merely? Oh, they're great program. Well, then we've talked about this before how many teams in the SEC like pretty much all of them have experienced some kind of coaching turnover in the span, that Sabin has been at Alabama. He's jordan. Or sure he's driven the SEC. He's driven all of college football crazy. Everyone's trying to get better than him and nowhere more so than perhaps, at LSU who for so long been that natural rival least in the SEC. West to the crimson tide. I like it or drawn. I like the fact that I know I just talked about how it's overrated, and it still is overrated. But I like the fact that he is sort of like the hometown guy that everyone's rooting for like the fact that he wanted the job more than virtually anyone else. I like the fact that we sometimes question how many screws he has loose. I like the fact that he brings that edge to LSU, and there is a screw tightened the screws might be tightened. They're still a bit loose and always had that component with less miles there. The mad Hatter at Ellis, Chartres was always that edge that made Elsie very interesting to watch from the outside. I think people just got tired of it just like, okay we get what late late stage. Less miles is needed new material. Right. That's, that's what it amounted to, and perhaps the upgraded version, or the different version of les miles can be at ores Ron less had a lot of good years at LSU, if Ed ores Ron can put tha. Gather better offense if he can get things going in a better direction offensively. I think the talent is there, I have confidence that he can build defense. I think he can get LSU back to a point where when he ten games something they can do in the regular season. The question for LSU people is can they beat Alabama? Can they win the SEC west can win the SEC? I don't know the answer to that right now. The answer doesn't look like. It's a yes. Which are you more sympathetic to asterisk, wise, LSU, and aren't, even Ovallis? Do people say this, this is me projecting? But well I mean they're the seven overtime they're like seventeen pulled ham as away from winning that, you know, seven overtime game at ores Ron was doused in Gatorade they were so confident the game was going to end when it did. Or are you more confident in using the asterisk, when we just over and over made fun of Mike Gundy for saying, well, the central Michigan games really a win records Rayleigh because of the bad Dell? Mary call. I think I'm still giving the edge to more sympathy for LSU has elimidate had an opportunity in that game. And they didn't EPA. Palm LSU that was like a way out of character game that I don't think tech say definitively can lay claim to so I think they're pretty close to ten win team. I'm there, I'm very close very close. The question is almost unfair to orange. Ron, can you provide casual that les miles couldn't less miles provided a great deal? He wanted national championship. It ores you're on the I think you can get them back to that level, which is encouraging if I gave you. Odds right now of double digit points scored by LSU against Alabama. No. I don't want it. If I were my view, plus two, fifty two and a half to one, no more if I gave you plus four hundred I would take four to one four to one odds of LSU getting into double digits after being shut out to the last three years, double digits, ten points. I will take four to one. I'm not sure about two and a half. Okay. All right. What is what is your next break pumper? Why have a very important question and that is how often do you think about your socks every single day? We've been talking about it forever on the show. I Mr. no-show show now, by the way. Oh, really? I live with pants without pants. Yep. Is that a dad moved in? I don't know if it's dad move, it might be more of a I like to wear pants to the office space. I go to. But I don't care if anybody sees my ankles or my shins wanted to breed as we enter into summer. So that's what I'm doing. Well, we've been talking about the merits. I don't cuff yet. If that's what you're asking. Okay. That's good. Thank you. Okay. You for clarifying. I'm not ruling it out. But I do not do it yet. We've been talking about socks forever. The value of having dry, comfortable feet all throughout the day, the best way to accomplish just that is by looking good friends, over at Bomba's. B. O N, B, A S, how you spell it. We've had baba socks supporting the solid. Verbal supporting the feet literally of the solid. Verbal hosts for eons now I can't even tell you how many years it's been. We are not kidding. I've got him on right Now, Dan, you might I don't know we sandals right now, but I do have a story continue, though we've had Baba's donning our feet for countless. Ears. We are here to tell you, they're the real deal. They're the most comfortable socks in the history of feet there from super soft natural cod. And every pair comes with arch support a seamless toe cushioned foot bed, that's comfy, but not too thick for being honest. They've got numerous colors patterns lengths, styles Baba's. They look great at the gym. I wear them to the office. Don't tell my colleagues. I mean that's cool. CIA has a very lax policy. They are what feet daydream about best of all with every bomb purchase. They donate a pair to someone in need, which is a cool little perk. You can buy your bomb today at B O, M, B A, S dot com slash solid and get twenty percent off your very first purchase again. UM AS dot com slash solid. Twenty percent off Baba's dot com slash solid. Take our word for it. We do wear them. We do appreciate their support. They've been with us forever. We. We know you will like them on your feet as well. I think that's right. I my only real quick story is apparently I left a pair of Bomba's no-shows at west coast Kevin's place in Austin, when I visited him and his family, he wore them and he is now airing are. No, he gave them to our mutual friends, Scott. Okay to give me when we were back in L A. This is they called it the brotherhood of the traveling socks. And Scott is now just wearing them because he couldn't look at him for that long without putting them into action. So boss popular around the globe, and could not recommend them enough. They're the most comfortable. You're only as comfortable as your feet. B O. M B, A S. Do it. All right. Dan? I don't know if you want to do the big dog, do you want to conference coach? Let's save the big dog for later. Okay. I think we both know that the big dog is here on this list. Let's go to up and coming coach, okay? Pump the brakes pedal to the metal. Whichever way you wanna play it. Jeff Brom did he not? Do a good thing by staying at Purdue. Even with all of that cash that was being offered from Louisville, and we'll and emperor do. Yeah. Did he do a good thing staying where he's at you pump the brakes you go and pedal, the medal on that? Did he miss a window to maximize his value? A very volatile profession. Yeah. So. We've sort of talked about. I mean, I will give my opinion I won't speak for you. But I he's going to make upwards of what five and a half six million dollars either this year or eventually with his new deal. Yeah. And you know that, that sets the market for him if you know, Purdue goes eight and four nine and three and he gets a job at some huge blue blood after he's done at Purdue. He will make. Yes. Seven eight million dollars whatever which is just crazy. What is the case? The Sindelar Artie is the wagon to, which he is hitching lies into our had a extrordinary bowl game at as quarterback two years ago. Arizona, I think that was in the bay area that was foster farms whatever it's called that bowl game. And then last season didn't really play. They lose to eastern Michigan. I wanna say he had kind of a bad game and really has not proven himself over the long term to be like, I am the dude, the least that even David Blau was and is Purdue in place now with winnable games for sure with talent especially on offense and taking a pretty enormous step back on defense last year culminating in that game against Auburn. Is Jeff Brom hurting? His term potential by staying at Purdue, which probably has a pretty defined ceiling. And I don't think Louisville has that same ceiling in the ACC. I don't think anywhere else really in most other conferences have the ceiling that Purdue does. And I just I don't know if I love the place Purdue is into fully showcase. Jeff and think it might hurt him. Okay. I disagree while I agree. And he here's why disagree, you're right to point out that the defense took a significant step back. But you're also slightly blind to the fact that it took a huge step forward in year. One under Jeff Brahm when lot of upperclassmen, they're already classmen. But when he took over, I remember looking at Perdue in advance of I guess, the what twenty seventeen season and you and I talk knew each other like this defense Gumby issue is rough. This got to be a problem for the cold had done a good job going in. Yeah. And low and behold, the defense ended up sort of being the talk that team now last season. Not so much. They drop pretty significantly. If you look at what Perdue did on offense over that two year span, it was sort of the opposite first year, not so good down in the ninety s I want to say in terms of how many points they're putting up her game. Marash Gier took a pretty significant step forward up until like the fifties were in the top half. Of college football. So I think what I'm trying to say is that this is a guy who could coach now. It's gonna take a while to try to symbol the pieces. He's only been there two years. He needs to get his guys in there. He needs to establish a culture needs to establish a system needs to get some of those at this point, he has need to get those underclassmen programmed accordingly to do what he wants them to do. But he's a ready going to be making a lot of money. It depends on your definition of maximizing your value. I think if he can get things going in a good direction, all the ships rowing in the same direction at Purdue, and at least make them plucky, which he seemingly has done that in and of itself will make him marketable Louisville ready wanted him after just two seasons at connection to them that connection they had a connection, but they are not the only school that was interested in Jeff Brahm. I can assure you and moving forward. They will not be the last. So I am not worried at all about Jeff Browns. Marketability. He is. At some point going to cash in a very big way. He is one of the few up and coming coaches who can bite his time at Purdue wait for the right job to come along and then cash at a later day. I don't think this hurts him at all. I think it's good for college football. Certainly for the big ten that he decide the stick around at Purdue he's going to be just fine. So the phrasing, I always like, though is at a certain point. Can he just go six and six every year and maintain the, the market value that currently has cliff Kingsbury is now the head football coach at Arizona. I get that. But he, he can point to specific quarterbacks that he helped to develop that I don't think the Arizona Cardinals, not the university of Arizona. I get you. I think that's more of a reflection on the Arizona Cardinals than it is. The general also be true. I would just be worried that if he goes six and six five and seven seven five in perpetuity. Next two, three, four years, perpetuity, obviously means forever. So I miss using that word. I just I think it's going to his attraction is going to plateau, while that's look. It's certainly possible. But you and I both know there are plenty of coaches around college football who developed a reputation as being a forward thinker or an up and comer or unit. Manny Diaz could be one of those, by the way they remain marketable perhaps longer than they should be now. I don't want blunt, Manny the as quite into that. But you get my point here, I think Jeff Brown's gonna be fun. I think he is you buy enough people as an up and comer, a bright, young college football mind. He will remain marketable for a good long time. This isn't going to hurt him, even if Perdue bottoms out which, I don't think they will is good coach. He is going to be just fine. I would like to point out. That the twenty eighteen Purdue Boilermakers gave up twenty three points to the Michigan state offense. Okay. Okay. Let's move on with their backup quarterback. Let's move on. I wanna get your take on something here. Now I had written other Pac twelve issue question, but you put something here that I think is an interesting topic for discussion. Yeah. Are we pumping the brakes are we not pumping the brakes did the Pac twelve do the right thing. By not taking ESPN's offer to distribute. Now you're gonna have to network ballgame. Yeah. You're gonna have to explain for the for baller hood here. What exactly transpired? So it's pretty straightforward. The Pac twelve has been big on owning itself outright, and that includes they have these deals with FOX in ESPN to show games. But they own the Pac twelve network outright. They like the ownership element of the network and I understand that in general big picture. You want to own everything you possibly. Can you have more control you make more money if successful at cetera, etc? The problem with the Pac twelve is has, we've talked about many times here before, there are certain built in disadvantages that the Pac twelve have be it schools without longterm traditional success or the fact that it's on west coast tiled schools, or most of its schools are on west coast time. So some of the bigger games are into the night, and a lot of people on the east coast or. Theast you know, central time are able to see all this big action and they haven't had teams in the playoffs. They've been close since you know, they've had Washington they've had Oregon, but they haven't had major major success since I suppose, both chip Kelly's run, Oregon, and Pete Carroll at USC with this nice little Washington blip, but not necessarily on a national level. So the Pac twelve is struggling with branding. The Pac twelve is struggling with, you know, garnering attention for some of its better story, some of it's more interesting team, some of its marched in coaches and not that you're buried on the Pac twelve network has plenty of people can see the Pac twelve network. I think that's a little bit overstated a little overwrought. But I think the Pac twelve has a perception issue that can be overcome with some more thoughtful exposure, that they are not necessarily willing to buy into and ESPN made them an offer to help distribute the Pac twelve network because he SPN has. Leveraged with cable and satellite providers in exchange for extending ESPN's existing deal. With the Pac twelve presumably at probably a sweetheart rate for ESPN, you know, in exchange, so, yes, I understand the Pac twelve wants to make the best deal for itself. But again, I'm a at a certain point kind of talker and thinker. Right. Or wrong. At a certain point when does the Pac twelve say Neo we could we could use a hand that doesn't involve private equity investing money. So the Pac twelve can still maintain whatever level of control they want. And as somebody who loves an adores, Pac twelve football, I really wish and, you know, let's say ESPN comes in, and they say, okay, we're gonna create like a hard knock style show, showcasing chip Kelly UCLA or Justin, Wilcox and Cal, put it on ESPN like they're doing things to raise the profile of certain things or will attach cameras to ASU in her med words. And now, I guess, what's his name the Bengals coach that just joined up Marvin marvelous Marvin Lewis, I can't keep track that they, they were willing to do things to go above and beyond to help with the brand of the Pac twelve and the conference. Just said, thanks, but no, thanks. And. I don't think the conventional wisdom is that the Pac twelve did the right thing, but I just like to re revisit it and say, what are we doing? Well, here's still income on. Here's what's interesting about as the s Chan is preparing to launch the ACC network. Right. Here's what's interesting about this on this show last year. We also had a question about the Pac twelve and that question was does the Pac twelve note? It's doing essentially are we sure that the Pac twelve knows what it's doing that, then it has somebody in charge. Again, we're asking a question. A business question about how the Pac twelve is conducting its distribution. I don't really have a problem with this. I don't and it's for a couple reasons. First off granted the media landscape is changing, but it's sort of an open secret that live sports are very marketable. And they, they tend to retain their value. So even if you don't cash in from ESPN now in five years, when the current deal with FOX, and, yes, PIN expires. In twenty twenty four what's to say that he has PIN is gonna come back in and also try to try to get their hands on the Pac twelve then I think, yes. PF would still probably be in the bidding. I'm not a business guy. But it stands to reason that if they were interested now they're probably going to be interested then throw something out as well. Sure. I have a theory that we are in a streaming bubble. Okay. That I that streaming has gotten to the point where okay you're subscribing to Hulu and net flicks. And what, what, what's Disney? Plus, that's what's coming soon, and Warner Brothers is gonna do a thing. And you have Amazon, you have you have all of these different entities, and ESPN is ESPN, plus and Faulk says, I dunno if it's Fox Sports go Ciller just Fox Sports. You have all of these different entities that you need to shuffle between, and it's almost like, hey, if we could have even with how evil all of them are. If we could have one overarching system to watch everything we wanted to watch say with a cable hooked up. Like some sort of bundle that might work out. Well, and I just think getting in well with cable companies who have the distribution model down, Pat, and not saying, well we're gonna put our games on YouTube and everybody's gonna watch it because that's how everybody's watching TV in twenty twenty three I'm pumping the brakes on that thought have that. Well, that that's fair and we could take that offline. Yeah. If you'd like to talk where bam your YouTube TV subscriber, and I have because of Jodi with an I I've reconnected the cord because when she was on maternity leave. She's like now I'm not dealing with any of that crap. Right. Give me give me channels. And that's fair. I just I don't think that there's a whole lot that could happen between now and five years from now that's gonna make the pack twelve any less valuable. I don't necessarily disagree with the fact that we're in a bit of a streaming bubble. I also think that it's somewhat wise to wait around and at least explore other options, not take the first deal in this respect. Can I tell you what, I think might make the Pac twelve less valuable by twenty twenty four. Yeah. Sick was at five six. Straight years nineteen twenty one two three four six straight years of every team going somewhere between four and eight and ten and two. Okay. Okay. And not appearing in the playoff. Not showing out well in huge games in early September or early January and not necessarily having big time systems, or coaches or huge national winds year over year over year. I think that could diminish the value of the pack twelve mobile see we'll see. I, I am skeptical that there's a whole lot that could happen that would make live sports rights, at least, in, in that sense less valuable. And I don't really have a problem with the Pac twelve has been poorly run, we had a lot of. Yeah. It's been poorly. Run at this point, you've already got a deal. It's not like your games won't be distributed. Why not wait a year to suit? Your options are see if there's anything new that develops. I think that's okay. Pump-pumping some breaks. Yeah. Okay. Fair enough. Daniel. Yeah. Do you wanna finish with one big one? You want a couple more. What do you want to do? Are we pumping the brakes? On clemson. Being dynasty. With no end in sight, who okay? Lot to unpack what Tom pack your so I did a show. I did a show. Gosh, I guess it was some at some point in December, maybe as before the national championship game for the playoffs with our friend, Larry Williams from guerrilla straight, one of the foremost authority on Clemson football, Larry all three of his books here on my bookshelf, is an incredible resource knows everything about clumps at football. He is impossibly bullish on the Clemson football program moving forward. It is certainly booed by the fact that they've got all world everything Trevor warrants as their starting quarterback had an incredible. True. Freshman camp, any DJ you eah Galela. Yeah. I mean, they're putting together. Maybe the better the best recruiting class of all time, right? He's coming recruiting cycle so clumps is in a very good spot. It's clearly a program that has reached critical mass Larry's high on them. I, I don't think there's any college football fan out there who isn't. Hi Clemson as well. This is not a program that is going to experience any kind of dip anytime and they're gonna dip down eight and four. It's just not gonna happen. I don't any chance of that happening. Right. But when you start talking about a dynasty. Dynasties a different word over the next five years future. Looks very bright for clumps one two and three right? Yes. Doing three but over the next ten years, or will dabbled Sweeney have this program. Is it dynasty with no end in sight? The way Alabama has seemingly been a dynasty with no end in sight, then. Right. So what I mean USC won a couple three years early on. Pete Carroll's tenure much to the chagrin. Guess dillas fans and that lasted a longtime USC being really good. But they weren't appearing in national championships. The back half of you know after the Oklahoma game. And after the Texas game than that, did they appear to national championship or in that national championship conversation. They were Rose Bowl good year-over-year, but they slowed down a lot of that had to do with tradition than of course. P CARA leaves. I don't know. What is the specific thing? That could slow this momentum. Yeah. Marin Venables seems like very happy there, I still think he'll eventually leaves, but he's waiting for the perfect job probably. Maybe maybe I'm wrong. I wrong certainly often enough. The sheriff's thing in college football picking, but. The only real thing I could see that could transform Clemson from eleven one twelve no into nine three ten and two is attrition among coaches Daboh flirting with an NFL job or something like that. And I don't I don't fully see that right now and just making a dove a higher. And having this is any program like to quarterback duds in a row recruiting wise, just Missa valuation didn't work out because of injury system. Whatever my, this is not really hypothetic- hypothetical. Does this dynasty continue, given if the talent is, you know, still coming at this pace and developing at this pace? The position coaches with same offense staff. The same defensive staff is the same except for one guy. Is Clemson, a national title contender in twenty nineteen like they all right? Now, if you replaced Brent Venables with Brian van border. I ask you this, I. Well, that's what it is. It's going to be a sort of what happened with Auburn after they won the national championship. Just a couple of hires, and take it easy, gene. Right. I when I did the show with Larry, I asked him pretty much the same question. What would it take slowdown this momentum? And it's not an easy answer. Of course, it's, it's all bunch of hypotheticals. You could have a team that doesn't come together, you know, the bad chemistry. That's, but it's really not. It's real. Like, that's what happens when this is what happens slowdown just replacing either players or coaches with MISA valuated personnel. It's something doesn't mesh. You could have bad chemistry among players among coaches, you could have guy like Venables, leaving certainly dabble leaves that could that could have a downstream effect as well. But there's no easy answer. He didn't really have a good answer. I think you look at the talent coming in. It's, it's hard to see a, a situation like that taking shape anytime in, in the near future. But to your question, specifically Brian van gorder steps in the scheduled to me is still easy enough that they could get by even if they're not winning the national champion thing. They're getting to the playoff game. They've still got a ton of town on the offense aside of the ball. This'll Trevor Lawrence in the short term twenty nineteen absolutely still playoff. Still a title content with BG absolutely. Okay. Absolutely. Now, they might get to the playoff and give up forty points. But are they getting that playoff game? Scher. Absolutely look at the rest of the ACC I think they're fine. How many teams in the ACC need to be legitimately good legitimately eight nine win threats before you look at the conference and say while this is now a deep enough ACC that I am legitimately worried about Clemson, losing twice or three times and not even maybe still making these championship, but not pencilling them in like they are now. Like, who is the team? So we know Florida state has a capability, we know, Miami have the capability just because of talent availability, and I just recent history, you know, says that these could be double digit winning teams floor states recent national championship. That's not a huge stretch, who is the team that, like, okay we're now down to if Virginia Tech is year over year nine and three is a Louisville in their own division. Scott Satterfield gets the cardinals to a point where they're nine and three every year with a, a lights out defense like they've had under him at upstairs. Are you suddenly saying okay now that Clemson Syracuse NC state, Louisville Miami, are all maybe even pit are all eight ish win threats I don't think Clemson has an easy road anymore. Does do need more teams in that fewer teams? Well, they had like ten bowl teams this Pat, I don't care about that. They know. But legit like eight they play eight conference games. It's not the hardest thing. I mean, it's gotta be at least. Seven needs to be good. What, what is the specific? I think it's Louisville. We'll. Tom. Yeah. We'll. Georgia Tech, maybe. Yeah, but densely yeah, they have a high town ceiling being where they are, if it gets all the way down to Georgia Tech, the most obvious improvers are Florida state, Miami, Virginia Tech Louisville. So if it gets down to Georgia Tech improving to eight nine wins air. Yeah. Yeah, I could see that. All right. But that's where we're years from situation, the a c I'm not pumping the brakes on now. I don't think I am either the Clemson dynasty. Let's close out with this one. Okay. Okay. With the bigger picture thing I already know disagreed. It'll be a fun conversation to close out the show with are you? I'm ready. Are you pumping the brakes on the college football playoff as a good thing are just pumping the brakes on the college football playoff are you pumping the brakes in the college football player? You are not explain your point. I will explain it feels forced at this point. Heels. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. That's your. Well that's the opening salvo of my points. We went eons with a bowl system. I know that was essentially a beauty pageant, and you're telling me a playoff system is forced tight. Did you ever have a crush on a young lady when you were in elementary school or middle young last? Well, yeah, I'm glad you did. Sure I did as well. And I don't have a specific story about this, but I have a friend who has a specific story who pined after a young lady for years and years, and just consumed all hell own a healthy level. He was not sitting in trees or anything like that, and eventually in high school, he took her to a dance and it's like this is the culmination all my God. I can't believe we are finally like this. This is my dream. It's being realized I've been wanting this for so many years, and then it was just disappointing. It was just disappointing. And I have reached the point where it whether it's Jimmy Kimmel singing a trying to get people interested in New Year's Eve, I am. I am reaching the point where we are seeing the same games and we're seeing the same teams and we're supposed to talk about the sport as if that's not going to happen in perpetuity. Where is just becoming tiring? And I just we've talked about it. This is not me breaking any new ground on the show. Right. I just want week ten. I am just the playoff is just not getting me hot in bio. Well, I, I, then I want the Rose Bowl. I maybe it's because I'm a dad now and I'm just feeling old fashioned in data. But you are you were of this bind long before you were father at is. True for real returning first off. How dare you, how dare you besmirched? The good name of the song years. I know you know, I have this at the ready all times. When you have you have to start employing, a PR firm. And now my favorite, it depends on what your objective is for college football season, as you know, fan of team as the fan of sport. This is where we differ, you for whatever reason, and I will never ever be on the same page as you. Okay. You believe that you can go to bowl game. You believe that some of our good friends and sports media can vote on who their favourite is in, even if you're not the national champion. That's still good enough. It was a good year. It was a good run yet a great bowl experience grab your season. Let's move on to. The next year. You're Matt be realistic. You're fine with that. I am not I what nine three and winning the Alamo bowl. Great if you're gonna play why not play to win. Why not play win the holy meal? Immobile frigging thing who cares about the Alamo bowl. I care in the fine people along the river, walk would like to have a worse, I e taco enthusiasts. I am not of this mindset that everyone should get the ribbon and be happy with it. I want the trophy. Give me the trophy. I don't think it's fair. Layoff touchdown tie start starts. I don't think it's I think it's cool that places like UCF don't get a realistic chance to play for the crown. They play a lot of the same teams they can't play for the crown. I think you're going to be in that a lot. I don't know if you're going to be an F B S. They should find some way to give everyone a realistic chance to win that one big prize. But there is one big prize dice crisis for five years, high school baseball coach once said it was the only smart thing he ever said. Only one team should go home. Happy at the end of the year. And I subscribe to that s away all much all the residents such a different setup high school baseball in college football. It doesn't have apples, apples one team. One team is your champion. That's what we should be playing for. I don't like the fact that old school college football is like figure skating. I left it in the hands of judges. If it's, it's content wanted his content, we're gonna content business. You're not wrong about that. Yeah. As a fan, though. I wanna see it happen on the field. I want to be determined on the field. If you are champing what you to earn it. I don't want it to be voted upon earn it. If Alabama and Clemson trade off national championships. The next five years, will you feel the same way. Absolutely really. Absolutely. I could see myself softening on the stance if we get like Penn State, Texas, Tech, I won't say, Oregon, but I'll say an interesting Pac twelve team. I dunno. Utah is out of nowhere with Andy Ludwig team with an amazing offense and Miami this year wild roller coaster of a Manny Diaz opening here. We had those teams in the playoff L soften. I definitely will soften. Let me ask you, let me ask you this. Okay. Let me spin it back around on you. Yeah. Your question is if it's the same teams in the national championship boy, Phil differently. What if it were the same situation? But we still had the old school, bowl system, not talking, but I'm talking old school bowl system. Right. Let's say both Alabama and Clemson remain dominant. They're locked into whatever bowl game they're going to whatever mole greement their conference has. And they're just playing different teams year in year out. We are still having this debate about, which one is better. Do you think that's fair? Both are presumably in the midst of great dynasties in college football sense. Yeah. And instead of them playing it out on the field. I might play it out at the Orange Bowl. Maybe we have an SEC game. All right. Maybe we don't though may were back in this old school dilemma of arguing it out who should be the best team who, who should be determined as an team. You're cool. I love it. I want everybody to be a national champ. Yeah I'm fine with it. I really am. I want January one I want, like twelve enormous bowl games, and I want to have to sort it out on this show for the next eight months. Good content. I'm fine with the content element of this. But as a fan as a fan, I disagree. I wanna see it on the field as it stands now we have one hundred twenty six teams who are supposed to feel disappointed at the end of the year because they didn't make the playoff. I think that's the wrong way of looking at it. I don't know. Man. I don't know them, right? In tweet us, soliver Djamil dot com is the Email we're onto we're gonna get like fifty thousand messages about this. Okay. We are we've done it before it's going to happen again tie. Here's my final question about this topic. What if it's not about the trophy? But the friends we made. What if I told you I just want more days with multiple football games and this limits things in a way that I don't love? The has I'm selfishly looking at this from both a content and from a day's worth of enjoyment, perspect-, ever, the businessman just TV event. If you want the one true champion, go to sixteen. I'm fine with that to do it. Go to sixteen go to college campuses. We can have a conversation. My light you meant Dan. Is that when you pick four teams you have a better chance of picking the one true champion? That's fine too. I just don't care about the one true champion and that could be Oregon, and I don't care. I'd rather have. And I've said this to people tie, this is this is how serious I feel about it. I'd rather have three seasons of Oregon winning rose. Bowls with an exciting offense beating Wisconsin beating Michigan beating whoever Ohio State Minnesota Michigan state. You name it big ten team. I'd rather have three years of that then one season of Oregon, putting it together in winning a national championship and having to deal with the expectations and what the program will have to go through a suddenly a national championship program. I'd rather have the Rose Bowl crowns, than the national championship. Would you rather? Listen to a podcast with terrible. Equality. Recorded entirely with blue us. Poor usage of blue yet is because some people do it right. You. Okay. Would you rather watch? I don't know what show is only okay. Would you rather? Watch all of the seasons of alias in eight K, or watch the wire in four by three, they only shot the wire in four by three that, okay? Okay. Okay. So we're still talking about the wire or not, find not the wire, but something else recently that's that's been excellent veep or barrier. Any of those shows, Silicon Valley, I don't know whatever I'm just naming HBO shows at this point Brooklyn nine nine. I love all sorts of shows four by three not a great picture. Occasional blinds, adjusting things or just what was what was this show after loss. That was like a lost rip off that they tried to. There's a show on right now where a plane disappeared for five years. ABC and Mike Tariq. Oh, and Doug Flutie were talking it up during the Notre Dame game. Yes.

"Hey guys it's sti your host of Life podcast where people with all sorts of backgrounds challenges a life experience show us how they make their relationship. extraordinary. Okay have you ordered the genius relationships online course yet if yet? I, gotTa hear how it's going because. I. Know You have great news and I want to hear it. Not, you're missing out. Go right now to gyms relationships dot com to reserve your slot and take your relationship to the next level two day. Hey guys were here today with a special guest, Richard Flint, a personal development coach and speaker for almost forty years helping individuals and couples live their best life. Possible has richt in quite a few books on relationships published over sixty. See these and thirty DVD's helping people reach inside, find their dreams and actually achieving it. He Richard. How are you? I am very well, how are you doing? I'm so glad and honored to have you here. What is your definition of? The marriage roller coaster. The thing we need to understand is that no relationship is perfect I used to have couples in the counseling room that would tell our marriage is perfect. So I'd ask three questions in pretty much stay would know that their marriage was There's always going to be ups and downs in she ship what I found over the years since that two people come together. The thing that brings them together is that special something special something varies from couple. To couple, but is long is their their concentration their focuses on that special something. They can handle almost anything in a relationship. I found that relationships. You know there's this this up and down they go through. There are times when they raid each other and there are times when they just liked each other on their times when they love each other and there are times when they're in love with each other now as long as that in love with each other. Is The foundation everything. You can handle the times when you slip into disliking each other are you know you love each other? Are you just tolerate each other by the way in this new number one through to find them that a lot of couples are learning their tolerate each other right now because of a being too but as long as they can go back to that special something dyson strengthening the connection. But if they news that special simply reads a disconnect in. In my years of working with couples, I, have found that there are certain things. 'cause the disconnect are laid out for you moments that create that aren't handle. They store up thinned than when they're energized candidates. Full is just over the top lack of really listening to each other not couples don't listen to Johnny because they just want the other the shut up so that they can say what they want to say it's not that they're there to resolve. Anything they're ending the things that they to also resistance to change all relationships go through change from the time that a relationship begins the word that really is the foundation to that relationship is change. Every aspect of the relationship is going to be a part of change and if we resume chain than we put it on a rollercoaster one that I hear all the time reliving the past and the press always reminding somebody didn't do yesterday using yesterday D. as their reason. To come to to beat on today in as long as you're reliving yesterday at special something's where in a lessening of this is bigger than most people talk about. But it's there because that that the sexual part of a relationship is a part of strengthening that special something and win that lessons it creates a sign of disconnect really one that's been really growing our society today getting too busy to have time creech up, you know one of the things that that disconnects. Couple is before married they date big law they do thanks they have fun enjoy each other and then they did married and they're too busy to date at one guy told me he said I can't afford the data or anymore I. said we can't afford not to date her. It's amazing. How at the relationship develops in mid we joke come in and stuff things happen they lose the deputy of the relationship and dating is one of the glues that hold relationship to. Listen to when I talked to couples, and that is the expectations for the relationship have become individual not together and I always listened to. That couple uses, did they talk about me I? Did. They talk about us and the. US tell you about the connection are the disconnection of the relationship. I have found these to be the most common disconnects in a relationship is one of these will do one it will can that special something that brought you together. So how can one get out of this and be an a healthy place on the roller coaster next enjoy the ride. While I think there are certain things that have to be done. If couples can practice this, it'll always take him back to that special or something, and I just want to remind your listeners going to slip in and out the store. Thanks you're going to tolerate each other you're gonna like each other you're gonNA love each other you're going to in the end. If you can always come back to being in love everything else in a relationship can be resolved. You can't resolve anything to give lose that special something that brought you together. You know we know all relationships begin probably ninety eight percent because of physical attraction I've watched people interview each other with their is they start at the bottom of the head or through the bottom of the ended, they deem that person physically attractive than they want to get to know. But the relationship has to involve beyond that. There has to be that internal something that says, this is the person I'd want to spend the rest of my life to manage the roller coaster and to manage the ups and downs in a relationship. I would suggest to your listeners at their seven things that I really work with couples on first conflict in any form is within a timely fashion you can't collect rocks. You can't have a part of your life where I'm going to save this, and then when I want to, I'm going to throw this there has to be communication and. Communication is looking for resolution for anything that can hold the relationship hostage. So when there is a moment of conflict rather than getting Eng rather than just on your hands and walking away you need to understand we have got to talk about this second that I suggest to controlling the roller coaster is beaten open to listening to each up know always agree with each other but there are times you're going to be wrong sometimes if I am angry or I'd collected a bunch of negative emotions, I don't WanNa listen to you i. just want you to add up and let me bit. nothing gets resolved and their truth in anything you don't complete has continuation I'm amazed when I was doing counseling company people that said in front of me, and they would sit there and the whole conversation was about what someone did yesterday and they had a checklist of all the wrong and when you had that checklist, you stopped listen to you cannot resolve anything in your life in any part of your life. If you're not listening listening is the most important foundational principle for growth that there is you got willing to admit, Hey, I was wrong and there's an interesting thing about forgiveness. I, just put in here we're too quick to forgive forgiveness is not something you grant somebody it's. A. Earn if I ash forgive me in you forgive me and then I go back out and do the same thing all over again I really didn't want you to forgive me I just wanted you to let it go and forgiveness is only granted improvement in behavior. The third thing that you gotTa have to control the roller coaster is there has to be new paps that you walk to yet having relationships become boring because they do the same thing everyday. Their relationship is a route trapped in a circle sameness and they wonder why there's no spot they wonder why there's no adventure they get. Into a routine of Sameness, and what that does is it makes you boring to each other. There's constantly got to be new PAPP's new adventures of dreams that you have together new visions that you're working. Then the fourth the conversations you had always be looking for solutions you know, and this again is an argument does not look for solutions. A fight between two people does not for salute anger excuses justifications are reasons are not looking for solutions. A solution is where we come together with a common purpose. There's an issue here we have a common agenda. Here's what we need to do to resolve this, and then we have. A commitment that we're going to let no, we've found the resolution it's gone because if you ever bring it back up, it never left number. Five of our seven is responding is always stronger than react when I react to you. I'm living from my emotions when I respond to you and looking at you and buffet to you from mind doubt your mind does not know how to be you're buying only wants resolution your emotions take over it's more about sometimes punish creating pain conflict letting someone know. So as you enter the conversation, it has to be focused on resolving the number six offer hubs, not verbal punches every person need. We need three, four, hundred hubs. We need ups and mental hugged are important because middle say that you're listening to me we need emotional. Hugs because emotional hug say than I care for and then we need physical hubs because physical Say I'm here with you and body needs hawks. Last thing is let yesterday be lesson driven. I think there's a lesson in everything, but it's the mind frame we come in. What can we learn from this? That'll make have a better relationship because I talked with couples all the time you really want three things for your relationship. You want your relationship to be in the process of becoming better. We're learning about each of the secret to any relationship of the secrets is not try change but learned how to blend personnel listen. If I'm trying to change, you know what I'm saying I don't. Like the way you are you need to be but if I growed understand your personality especial something about using your personalities, it's what brought you to work and I want to be smarter about this relationship. I want us to learn how to communicate so that we're not hurting each other and then the third thing is we've got to work on being stronger being stronger as a couple is learning how to build a foundation where it's built on believed. In fate in this relationship, rather than worry in our relationships are built in wanted to combine either believe trust in fate are doubt worry and uncertain we wanted to be believed trust and faith in each. If you can achieve these than what happens is you'll always come back to at special something that brunch together in the first place. So how does one get to be able to believe that? Well, first of all you've got to, you've got to believe in yourself I mean if you lead in yourself, you're not gonNA believe in anybody else not to that found issue has got to be. Strong within you too many couples get married because they need somebody take care of them rather than than they want somebody to share their life, and that need is selfish that want is togetherness I mean if I want you in my life didn't I'm GonNa work every day to let you know how courtyard to my light by need you in my lap and GonNa Awards every day to make you my hostage and I'll love you as long as you meet my needs. But if you don't meet my needs than you don't love me and man, that's a game that's played so many different times. And you really got work on the foundations of a relationship in it. Starch would never forgetting that special something it goes to never stop dating it ghost to always communicating from where the relationship is. It's making sure that every day you ours is an individual are becoming better stronger smarter within yourself so that every day I can present you with a better part of. Me On a relationship becomes boring in, it's allowed to remain boy. It's very hard to turn around. You'd be amazed how many couples are bored with each other. What would you suggest to someone to make their relationship more interesting day? You need a date night every week at if you have kids, it's not where you go out with the kids it's where the cup of. A goes up together I made. OUT TO DIDN'T COUPLE NEXT MOM dad, and the two kids. It was their tenth wedding anniversary. You could tell he was not happy with having kids air which she took the kids to restaurant and you know being the person that I am I just couldn't I. Ask you are you having fun these now this was supposed to be our night lenny looked at me. He said, but she won't go anywhere without the kids I bit my tongue next day does I wanted to say I to see I wanted to say to the reason she won't go anywhere without the kids she does want to be alone with you couples need A. Date night and they also lead the spice up their sex life because that can become bored and they need to be willing to have a dream that they're dreaming together. What did we want for the future? You know a huge percentage of marriages end up in divorce when couples have been married nineteen or twenty, four, twenty, nine to thirty five years kids early, and he wakes up one morning lifted her she listed him and he goes poor you she goes I don't know who are you to people can share a bed share a house even create children and be total strangers it'd be caused they lose something everything else in life gets. Too busy for them to work on their relationship. A relationship takes so much further when you're happy you're complete confidence and you know what? When you know that that person is in love with you when they you know God's will look around girls were look around. But when they always come back to you because that special, you know you have something special which would work on that. It's not automatic. You gotta work on that special something that you have between it and let it grow. Let it mature leaded it come the essence of who you are as a couple, and that's what makes you proud to be jokes exactly is here.

What's in your wallet capital? One NA member. FDIC listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We continue on the second hour of our program on a Monday. Glad you are with us. Hope you survive the weekend. And let's get back to the calls at eight five five to four to seven to eight five Mike and making Georgia you're on the air Apollo. I wanted to talk about the Clemson recruiting hall last weekend. But if I could quickly comment on what ship towers had to say, you know, the differences between mart, Rick and Kirby, and I know Rick was beloved especially in the initial part of his career with the biggest difference between the you can have all those graphs. You want is that Kirby has edge to eve he brings a tough. Nece that Mark never brought in while more. Rick is love budge or fans, I think he was always perceived as somewhat soft. I mean gator fans have never feared you have never feared Mark richt. I think gator fans do fear Kirby smart. Yeah. Listen, Mark was a very good football coach and an excellent person. But you are correct. I I always heard a lot of criticism of him when it when it came to discipline when it came to having a killer instinct, I mean, you you always hear this. This is a compliment by the way that the so and so has the conscience of a serial killer. Well, it's part of football. It's it's not a friendly game. In Kirby is as tough as they come. Do agree with you. There onto the Clemson thing. Real quick ball. You've been saying for several months, and it looks like is obviously, correct. The Clemson has the best program college football program in the country. And if you saw what happened with that recruiting hall they got last weekend. I mean, they just completely separated themselves from LSU and Bama and Georgia and everybody else, and it's like a tidal wave, and I just was wondering what you think about it. I think you are. Correct. I think we have a clear paradigm shift here in college football and Clemson has always been near the top Allah. Bama was at the top. And I don't think you can say that any longer Alabama is still in the in the in the same time zone. But Clemson is doing things that that I I don't think the rest of this are familiar with now. And and, you know, they're getting national recruits in every in every at every position, and you know, getting the player yesterday the pocket passer, it just shows the appeal. And and listen, it's a fun place to go. Well, it looks like it, you you come into your caller earlier that, you know, maybe saving his sacrifice some fundamentals and coaching to be able to get some recruiting energy for some younger coaches. But it looks like clemson's able to do both have the fundamental teaching coaches and the energy. No, I mean, listen to national championships. Mike, they're dangerous another one. They could be unstoppable is scary. I appreciate your time. Thank you, really great to hear from you. Let us continue with more calls here and Logan is up next. Logan, go right ahead. Paul. Appreciate them a call today. You might have fought talk a little transfer Fordham ahead. Do you think it is going to be good for college football in the long term with the photo? I don't I try not to give you an academic answer. Probably not. But I think you do have to argue for the individual rights that it's it's the world we live in we go through through cycles. And right now the cycle is if you're unhappy where you are go somewhere else. Do you think you could see up thought that he could help coach the ball in terms of spreading the talent field where not all the talent is specifically going to win school? But now, you're getting more talent all around the foam acid Logan, the better players where are they going? Have. We seen a trend line yet. Jalen hurts go home, Jay go. So high state. I mean, we're talking about the elite getting richer. Yeah. But I'm just saying like used to they would the players stick around there. The backup light backup quarterback backup db stuff like that. But now you're saying more guys leave and going to other schools that offer -tunities to go to and play. Well, I just think it's I don't think it's it's a unique only to sports I think we see this in all walks of life. Somebody hire somebody six months later. You read rhythm. They don't like them. I mean, there's not a lot of let's let's work this thing out gracefully anymore. We we live in in that type of world, and we've been we've been moving toward this for a very long time. Thank you very much for the call a good to hear from you. How about Brett in Florida? Brett, you're on the air. Go right ahead. Hey, this first time caller wondering like the brings some these teams out day since nineteen nine till now. Then though, Georgia's one seven gangs and those Tennessee hound the saying since nineteen ninety up to the day, you only on Saturday, low fakes and Kentucky to thirty two years to beat his and we had a forty thousand fan base show up for the orange and blue spring gang. The. That's about all that say about that. Ken is up next in Texas can get afternoon to. Hello paula. I call because you had a earlier caller talking about bear. Brian. I'd go back all the way to any was Kentucky. Although I'm a Florida fan. And one of the things that happened is you know, he had this all American quarterback obey per Ellie. Yes. And they were ranked number one in the nation when they played Tennessee. And they had never that and beating bear Bryant had never beaten Tennessee, while he was Kentucky, and a friend of mine who was Tennessee graduate back in those days said that Tennessee knew something about the way that babe played that they had the secret had you ever heard anything about that. No, listen, I I I don't know much. I mean, I know who bay parolee. Was. But I I didn't know that. No. Well, anyhow one other thing if I can take a minute longer. I've called you several times, and I've never bothered to get around to the fact that I lived in the Birmingham area. And so several things happened that I considered myself involved in the first one was converting the Bill age of of well, actually suburb of green valley to Hoover, right? And then the other one was the formation of the UAB, and I had the privilege of given several lectures, you'll be when they first of all that's we're what year was this. Again. I think it was in sixty eight or sixty nine a form in sixty eight that sounds about listen that's before my time. But but it sounds about right. That's I used to live in Hoover. I know exactly what. You're talking about. Oh, you know, Mr. Hoover was a really good guy. He formed he gave all this money and effort to forming the Hoover Athletic Association, where our little literally played. And I had the privilege of being involved in that would you can't as you probably know there's there's a few places in this country where there is a better feeder system to the high schools then in Hoover, Alabama, right, right? By the way. Also, I know about the astroturf problem with legion peel, I have friends that worked Kim strand. Well, th that's a great story. Well, listen, Ken. Thank you for sharing. All that. That's really fascinating yet. Yeah. Okay. Well, let's talk to you. You bet had a great day. Really good to hear from you. Let's continue. Tony. I got actually that kind of hangs up next. Tony food and do it myself. What what was Tony doing there? We know. Anyway, we'll take a short break. Justin Thomas, the PGA star who went to Alabama when PJ championship two and a half years ago. He will join us next. He's going into the television business. Stick around to listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. Now, we were talking during the break about college golf the championship. A couple of weeks away a last year. It was ala Bama and Oklahoma state won by Oklahoma state. Justin Thomas, Sean, just proud university of Alabama golfer who won the PGA two and a half years ago at quail hollow in Justin great to have you on the hope hope, I know. I know I know it's been a busy year and PGA right around the corner. Good afternoon to you. Yeah. Good afternoon to you to talking to you. Thank you very much. We were talking about this. This new every I guess at some point everyone needs to get into the television business, but I say that jokingly, but you and Rickie Fowler are taking this to a different level. It begins tonight on the golf channel you to you have a couple of projects involving college golf really interested. I know the audience is eager to hear you describe how you got into it. First of all. And then Secondly, what will we see beginning tonight? Yeah, it's cool so driven it's a showing golf channel. Where it just kind of it shows, basically, just the life of college golf and Ricky started it last year with Oklahoma state and Oklahoma, and you know, just a Ricky's good buddy of mine live on the same street as them. So we spent quite a quite a bit of time together and just talking to him about the process and watching the show, especially with as you know, how a predominant and how involved Alabama golf has been in terms of the top of the ranks that we felt like this is a great opportunity to get involved this if it worked out so just be able to highlight the the iron bowl, which I'm sure you've heard or not thinking about over the years, and it's intense rivalry and especially with Auburn planes. So well, the last couple of years and obviously Alabama doing so well, the last, you know, ten or so years, it's it was a great opportunity to become involved and feel like it's gonna show a lot. On the golf course. But mostly off the golf course have just the life of a college golfer on some of the top programs in the country and everything that they have to go through. JT as we get culture to you're the championship in three weeks. I believe it's three weeks from this week. How did your college golf experience helped prepare you or acclimates you to what you currently go through now every day on the tour, and certainly on an international level. Hope to lot be just with the. I mean first off the the competition. I I mean, it was it was unbelievable because the how how good the players are in college off these days. It's I mean, it's so hard to win a lot especially amateur golfing college golf just to win to win tournaments. I mean, it's hard to win in every and any level, but I felt like for me playing against the best players in college dolphin in the in the world and winning at that level. It gave me confidence going forward and now out on the torch where obviously caused a lot different of the PGA tour, but I'm planning a lot of guys that I played against in college. And and and I played against them for years and years. So it definitely have a lot of memories back then. But just you know, the from the guys in the team that we had when I was there and all of us, you know, making each other better and practicing together and spending time together definitely have a lot a lot a lot of great memories. And and reasons to. That was very happy that I made this doesn't go to school there. Because I feel like it it helped me way more than I could even imagine. We joked earlier about the dearth of great college golf teams north. I know you're from kind of place where in Kentucky where I mean, you don't get great weather until mid the mid to late March. But I did you were you ever enticed even think about a school above the Mason Dixon line? So to speak. Yeah. I mean, I joked with people it's funny. You know, if they if I go out west or come down here, and somehow the topic you get started talking about snow. They're like, oh, man. I love to see it. I'm like you. You really don't like I if I never saw snow again in mine tire life. I would be perfectly fine with it. I really don't have any and grease into. I don't know if that's because I'm a golfer or or just because I've seen enough of it. And I don't like flooding that much to where it doesn't do a whole lot more me. So now, it I knew that I always wanted to go somewhere where I could play a little bit closer to year round as opposed to, you know, consistently, you know, six eight months of the year. But yeah, it was it was just perfect to where I could play for, you know, comfortably for ten ten months of the year. And then you take some time off when you get this cold day now, you're right. I live in North Carolina and everybody brags about having four seasons. I I'm I'm good with some. Frankly, I don't really see faller or winter. Let me ask you about your career. Certainly you were building toward it for a long time. You broke through with the major in August two years ago, a quail hollow last year. I mean, you were just literally on fire. You got to the PGA coming up next week. It's a cliche to ask you about the state of your game. But since you're one of the top players in the world. It's a it's an obligatory question. How is it? Yeah. You know, I haven't really done, but I actually had the withdrawal last week. Just have a little bit of a wrist injury to some kind of wear and tear. So as you know, the risks are pretty important game. Also, I'm I am I'm taking as much time as I possibly need to take. You know, I understand I've talked to many people. It's just it's it's the sake of, you know, potentially missing tournament or two and saving a year or a career if it goes wrong. So I'm I yeah. You know, I missed one of my favorite tournaments of all of them in quail hollow. Obviously a lot of great memories there. But love it. But again, you know, my my health is what's most important. So I I've been probably some, but I really hit. I haven't hit it all so I'm definitely definitely chomping at the bit. And to get back. Definitely just take more time with it and doing all the proper things I need to do. But yeah, it's it's always a bummer when when you can't really do do much, and I and I realized that living in south Florida when you can't golf ball. There's not a whole lot of this. So I've been pretty well. You know, I know you heard from he he heard from you. We're we're going to see coach saving Wednesday when we're at at the region's tournament, are you? How are you counseling him because this is his golf time of the year? And as we all know, he's he's laid up sort of speak. Well, I think laid up for most people in late up. Why did different definition? I mean knowing him. I'm sure he's out. He's probably walk eighteen holes or something after what a week and a half after hip surgery. So it some I've never I've never met anybody like him. And and that's a good way. So knowing him, and I'm sermon series got to keep it keep him tied down to his chair. So he doesn't walk around and and make that thing any sore, then it's going to be, but but also with with everybody that they have on the program. I'm sure he's doing therapy. More than any football player. They've ever had come through their finally so next week is the PGA. And this is the first time we've seen a may PGA. There's been some experimentation before you were born was in. I think February or March at one time, but how do you like and assuming you're healthy? I guess maybe I'll preface the final question here. But how do you like this new schedule when it falls a fairly close on the heels of Augusta. Yeah. You know, it's different. It's like I told everybody I think it's just gonna take a couple of years for everybody to be like, okay? You know, this is that didn't work for me. This worked for me. This is what I'm going to do going forward. And you know, I've been very pleased with with how all this year without space it out. I mean, the the hard part about it is that there's so many tournaments that are great. And I mean, I'd love to play ten thirty of the whatever it is thirty six I think it is events of the year. I mean, I really would. But it's just not possible or not very feasible. So you just have to you really have to pick a spot or pick your spots that you feel like you have the best chance to win. And really, you know, kind of hone in on those and make sure your game is right and ready when you get there because it's you know, the the state of the game right now. I mean, you look at maximum a good buddy of mine, but I've, you know, I've played against instance, college. And I mean, not the sugarcoat. I mean, he's got a really bad couple of years and. He has played well at all he's missed a lot of cuts, and and then there usually just one one of the biggest terms of the year with one of the best deals of the year by three. So that's what we have to deal with every week. And so that's in terms of scheduling, you just gotta make sure you're ready when your team it up, and and bring it because, you know, everybody else's finally, and it's become almost the cliche Goto question. He's about to be honored at the White House. And you know, where I'm going. Tiger Woods you were on the leaderboard. Sunday. At Augusta seemed like everyone has had similar things to say about the feel of that place with with tiger in in the red shirt, climbing up the leaderboard what what did you take away from that experience that people are still talking about? Yeah. It was it was incredible. I mean, it's it. It was great for the game of golf. But it just was it was really cool for him. And I've been fortunate to spend some time around them. So the the coolest part for me was just the interaction with. His kids. I mean, his kids that never seen him win in person. And you know, we haven't really got into it too many times. But when we have, you know, he's like all my kids know me has a YouTube golfer. You know, they've never seen win in person. They've just seen highlights of these stuff on TV or the internet. So I know how special that was for him, and I've seen him interact with his kids and how great the father is. So for him to share that with his two kids. I mean, he's done a lot of things in the game golf. But I can't imagine that not being the highlight of his crew that's far. So although I wish I could have been you know, made a couple of more putts. And then give them a little bit more of a run. You know, it's you're lucky sometimes when you get to be a part, or at least there and watch kind of history that so it was pretty cool. You know, a couple more shots this summer beginning next week. Good JT. Thank you so much. Good luck with the show tonight and hope to see you soon. Sounds good Paul always good talking to you. You bet. Justin thomas. Nice enough to join us won the PGA championship last year. He was I think he went three tournaments and was in contention literally every week. We'll take a break more to come on our program. We'll take your phone calls after this. Listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Welcome back. We are glad you're with us. And let's take some more phone calls here at eight five five two four to seven to eight five with strat. Tony again. We had him earlier. And we did not connect Tony. Are you there? Yes, paul. I'm here, gene. Yes. We can. Thank you. Yes. I I want to say congratulations on show. You don't good job, man. Keep doing what you doing. Thank you very much first time long time. I I really wanted to ask you about was that hypothetically speaking. Say over my does go to USC, do you think he can turn the program around or will it take some time to do it? If he can do it. If he does take the job, or if you know, regardless of what Reggie Bush because I think he'll play health. And so on short leash at USC, and you know about their history they're known for firing people soon as they get out there for your fire. You know what I mean? So I just wanted to get your insight. What do you think of that happening? And if it does happen, how long will it take for him to get USC back to prominence because I've been USC fan for a long time since Rodney Peete in Keyshawn Johnson, you know, the greats. Yeah. What do you think? You'll listen. I I think they may. I think right now the issue out there is is in leadership, and you know that. Yeah. And they made a bad situation even worse, which is almost hard to imagine. And I. Think that may be one reason urban would be reluctant to to get in the middle of that mess. But I think the job is so good. And there are so much upside that did I believe he would be tempted by that. Okay. Yeah. That's the only thing I was thinking about too. You know, we have this. We already have a black guy with all the scandals in the pay for students and with Reggie Bush. Now, you know, the history of this guy does with urban Meyer, his background that kind of what make it look like, you know, like we don't care about women or something, you know, what? Atla? You know, listen, I'm I was certainly a critic of urban Meyer. It wasn't. I don't think anyone doubted that urban Meyer cared about women. It was just hit the blind spot. He had for the grandson of of a mentor, and he was in the neighbor. And you know, you you could say it's the same thing. But I I don't think that's an issue any longer. Do do. Appreciate the call. Tony great to have you on Ed in South Carolina. Hello, ed. We are great. Thank you, this beautiful weather, isn't it? It's about time. We've had this terrible rain that did I'm sure you've had as well. But today is. You got question for you. Thank about this. Now, the sites screwed out of the Super Bowl a bad. Call. You see the finals? Double dribble. One called the Golden State won the title that then bay apologized for because they didn't fail lots curry out. And they got controversy in the derby. Let's do those major sports here. You know? It's a good question. I can't remember I think some of it is television that we we in social media in the derby, the derby. I think for people that don't follow thoroughbred racing this. This would have happened. I think if you go back to nineteen sixty five or or two thousand and in nineteen I I don't think the times had much to do with it. Some of the other ones I do believe it's the world we live in. Is it not the derby? But is all -ficiating or just it just I'm in. I what it is. I think it's the we no longer just watch the games, we watch the games, and we watch our phone, and we watch our phone to see what we're supposed to think. Because half of us don't I'll include myself have no earthly idea what we're watching. It's not like we're sitting there taking notes. I mean, we're watching a game in the middle of conversations and other things. But just like every major thing this controversy goes on as well. Because the second something happens. I mean, listen, I don't want to sound like from another era. Even though I am. But what did we get nowadays? Well, how did how did how did social media react to the Kentucky Derby and everything becomes a little more controversial? But by the way, you know, Ed, I saw something on television Sunday more than they were showing all the great endings or controversy landing fish show, the nineteen seventy-two Russia USA basketball game for the goal that that is in my youth. The most outrageous thing I've ever seen and we didn't have social media back. Then we didn't have anything back then other than if you were lucky you had a caller television set and that that that's that. That's still living on today. So I mean, I I mean that wasn't just a losing to some. No name horse from the middle of nowhere. That was that was we the United States lost to are are not our rival. But our our mortal enemy, right? What replay is replayed the problem? Everything replayed them. Well, but you know, you back. That came out top. They made bad calls calls always part of. Yeah. But you know, you had replays eh, but you just didn't have the the degree of them. Now. That's true. I guess but everything could be replayed and replayed. Nobody. Well, we missed the that'd be this. Now, you know. And I don't know. Let's go back to all. I'm I'm I'm old guys. Go back the old way. This may. Let's let's let's just go back to what year. Do you want to go back to add? Well, that's the when I was forty SM fifty five out the about about forty years old maybe thirty five years ago about Pat. Okay. So you want to go back to the the mid eighties. Okay. Ronald Reagan is president. If the Berlin Wall is still up. But yeah Jackson has the number one record in America. Okay. You still want to keep going? Did. Well, no matter what year was thriller was still really great records of all time. The time is not going to change that thanks for the call. Appreciate it. Very very much. Well, I I'm not sure I would have picked one thousand nine hundred five to go back to if I was picking a moment in history. But that's what you wanted. That's what you got steward is up next. Hey, stewart. Hey, Paul, thanks for taking my call. Thank you very much. I I just wanted to say it's a beautiful day in in Alabama. And I just got to watch the recap own SEC network of allburn Tigers putting Kim run woman allow Obama baseball. I. Yeah. So. Pretty awesome in wanted to to tell everybody that that said nice things to me after I called in rigidly on show. How much I appreciate their nice comment. I really do. Appreciate it. Do do. Do we talk on Friday night? Was that? Right. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. And let me tell you what let me can give you just a second. We we were. I don't want to re recapture everything that you said. But for a lot of people were not watching it to time because I think we we'd gone off a little early Stuart. Your veterans right Stewart. Yes, sir. Okay. And I don't want to tell your story. But but I'm going to I'm going to because it's worth listening to your you where where did you? I'm gonna have you finished the story. But where did you? Where did you have your injuries? I got injured in Afghanistan, right? And an amputee now. And then I just got I got my sweet prosthetic I was trying to figure out how to upload that on on the show. I figure that up another time, but I got a red white and blue prosthetic and I'm getting around and being able to get after. And then got some got a phone call from the doctor and told me that I got most of my lonely like my dad did, but I don't have very long to go. But. Still like Stewart, I want you to know. It was late in the program. But we had a number of people that that not only called in. But that hit us up on on our social media. And I I didn't I apologize. You're asking you to repeat that. But I just want to make sure I got the story. Right. But. You your story touched so many people. And I know that's those words probably can't mean a whole lot to you. When when we all know what you are currently going through. I there's no way any of us could relate to it. But but mainly I appreciate you sharing the story because as I said to you Friday night, I think we all get down now. And then we feel sorry for selves over this simplest and most trivial things. But when you think about what the the life you've lived in some of the some of the bad cards you've been dealt it. It just really inspiring to hear you call in. And I encourage you to keep calling. I sure will it. I I tell you one thing. I wouldn't I wouldn't trade it for the world. I've I've I've only had thirty six years, and I don't know how much longer I got. But if then I I wouldn't I wouldn't change inexperience because men who I am now. And that makes me appreciate beautiful days in Alabama like today and also wanted to just still one more shot up to Donald cowboy Sironi. He's the same old same age. I am right now. And he just went into the USC this weekend and lay warp it down. So just want to throw out the salad on. Stewart. Listen, you you continue to call in. And and update us and a lot of people are pulling for you, and please call back. Sure. We'll after she taking my call ball. It's our pleasure. Thanks, my friend. Stewart calling us that was just a chilling call. We had Friday night. And I'm glad to call back only. Because some of the reasons I said, but but I just want him to know that we are really thinking of of him during incredibly difficult time. But but he's got a better attitude about it than any of us. Thank you against or we're we're up against a break. Much more to come right here. You're listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. If you'd like to give us a ring we will take your phone calls now at eight five five two four to seven to eight five. We are going to return a little bit later to this poll that we put out we have the the guest coming up haven't had too much reaction yet. Because we've been we had John JT Justin Thomas and a couple of other guests, but this poll that by this writer, he I I don't again, I he'll have to explain he lives in an area. Charleston that feeds both to the ACC and the SEC, but he ranked the SEC is that right is Charleston. Okay. He thanked the SEC and the ACC, and he has debo Sweeney ranked number one ahead of Nick Sabin, which listen it his opinion. Good for him. Then he has Mullen ahead of Kirby smart. I ask you Georgia fans. How do you feel about Dan Mullen, who's never beaten, Kirby smart? And even though it he's Owen to as a as a head coach and Owen nine as an assistant and head coach behind or head of Kirby, smart and then. You have four head coaches in the ACC. I mean, not exactly a house. Hold words. Here Clawson, Dorin NAR. Doozy. And cut cliff ahead of Mark soups will must champ. Berry Odem in Ed or Giron. You have Joe Moorhead behind Steve adagio. And you have you have you have. You have Pruitt Chad Mars net Luke behind Scott Satterfield of app. State Mack Brown who hasn't coached and fourteen years. I actually just two thousand and thirteen. Listen, everyone's entitled to their opinion. That's fine. But I would like to get some reaction to this. This is Jean Suffolk off don't know much about, gene. But we will introduce you to him coming up here in about an hour. Don is in Arkansas, Don, thank you, very very much. Welcome to the show. Hi, paul. Listen. I was gonna follow up with with Mike said for making about that claims in two thousand twenty class. I was purview in some of the two forty seven sports in Bleacher reports five stars. And it was shocking. How many having committed that are leaning towards Clemson. They could act I'm at LSU fan, by the way. But I mean, they could end up with ten plus five stars in this class. And this would cause them a monumental shift. And I really believe if Nick Sabin doesn't win a national title and the next two years, he'll vacate Alabama. I really believe you. Expound on that a little bit. You do you think you think that the paradigm shift is that dramatic this quickly? Yeah. I think the environment it is so contrasted with so many people wanna put Nick Sabin on their resume as coaches, but they just don't want to work for them for a long time other than like, Kirby smart, and I think that same environment that family environment, a group of coaches that are stable I think they're just gonna this could be the strongest recruiting class in the history of the modern history of college sports, they could have upwards of ten plus five stars in a very stable environment where the athletes feel like they're. Why would save an advocate? I think his stands for himself or so high. I don't think he can live with him. So if he can't win national championship at least every two or three sites. I I believe it will make you now you may go to another team, you might even go to the NFL. I'm a chiropractor. I know about hip replacements and things like that. These are degenerate conditions have caused by inflammation, and the same inflammation that can take out a hip could take out an artery. And all these other things. So he may be John guy.

Local Hour: Cheese Balls

"The Dan Le Batard Woodstock Gotcha podcast is brought to you by the capital one's ever card or four percent cashback on dining and entertainment Ju- percent grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases now when you go out you can't Jim what's in your wallet terms apply. It's the shipping container talking to you on Tuesday. That's right and I got a question. I WANNA play a little game to start us off today. It's called called. What did he mean by this yesterday? Mark Richt decided to make a little post on twitter and it's a picture of him standing on a beach holding a bucket of cheese balls and he says I quote life doesn't get much better than this. Just think could be great in film right now. He's laughing thing at us. She's balls is the statement there obviously him on a beach. That quote got no issues with it. What does he mean by those? She's both why's he holding a random. Buy a a pack of cheese balls the big one the family size. What if you're GONNA go cheese balls you get that one by the that's a bad that is a bad beach food too? Is it not can we not agree that that's a terrible beach food food. That's my point Dan. What do you where do you wipe your hands? Yes and yeah what you're trying to do at the beach. The beach is complicated for food in general right because you don't WanNa get sand on anything I saw a television show. I think it's on Amazon prime called forever and they just declared that the best beach food is the banana because because banana comes in its own protective shell to keep the sand away and then you can eat something delicious. Do you have anything better than that. Cheese balls terrible terrible can't do cheese balls because then you can't lick your fingers right and you hard to tell whether is is that sand on my hands or is that cheese ball dust it's like I don't know I wanNA lick my fingers but I have to look this inspect vilis a good person the ask about this because he's a very strange eater but he's also like I feel like billy is if not germophobic at least in the realm of hygienic. I totally agree. I picture billy when he goes to the beach. He's got a cooler and he's got a bunch of different. Things prepackaged a bunch of safely. Maybe some fruit. What are you guys prepared? Yes very prepared. Yeah a chips are fine cheese. Balls are weird. I don't I don't want means something by this. I'm telling you that she's baller statement. We need to figure it out doesn't mean anything no oh I thought like you. This is ridiculous but pointing to the cheeseburger is he's holding a giant tub of cheese balls that look like they have four to five hundred cheese balls in them and he's pointing directly at it for some reason that's his focus on the picture not so much the beach which is odd. I got an urban dictionary cheese. She's balls don't do that. I think Mark Richt is using a lot of urban dictionary the answer to solving your problems usually not urban dictionary because then you're gonNA. I mean mean what you're gonNA. Find out about. Mark Right now is going to be she's balls is a slang means corny. I'm not sure he's calling being Manny Diaz. The new Miami the Corey all the running into the wrestling stuff offset boom. That's it you this cheese. Balls look like tiny oranges game as an orange bowl. This is where Arash where the Bragg is. The Orange Lost Wisconsin four hundred that Western Kentucky Game Bill for F- I you guys over here like taking like like a blowtorch to my football team that got in. He missed out on everything kept him Morgan came back. Western Kentucky supposed to be a time when you like this we committed to talking about if if I you and you dodged a bullet bullet that's more that's embarrassing. You lost his watch. The world burn around the things are bad for you. Don't you do this. This is been a bad football year. I'm going to bet football home. Games coming feeling attacked billy what happened just I mean no no because he does this the smog thing where he's just like loving Miami and Cleveland are lose them with as little snide comments and meanwhile we don't even mention F I you one thing that you care about. I mean Western hockey the the fact that you this person is comparing F I m really is a state of Nestorian program is the fact you Pooh Pooh an orange bowl as if it's not a New Year's Day game people work their entire lives to reach an orange bowl. I mean come on lose a program. I just love that I forgot I guess today and making fun of what losers we all are Chris Cody Dolphin Fan Greg Cody pick the dolphins to win. Mike Ryan Cleveland Browns Fan A and stugotz jets fan all heartbreaking heartbreaking losses but my just pointed out the one program you care about billy's F. I. But that's not entirely accurate you also care about the marlins. Marlins are losers all of losers. It's been a disappointing start the FA football season one which at the beginning of the year I said was going to win ten games this year so I think to win ten games we'd have to lose only one game moving forward and make it to a bowl game. The question is did you predict ten win because you took a picture with Butch Davis. No no no no no no there was a lot of expectations going into the season. The offense last year was the best in the conference and they were really good and butch has broadened people and Dan. You know you have an extra year but offense has been bad this year for me. Please forgive my ignorance on this. How it came to be that you took that picture with Butch Davis? I haven't unheard you talk about that. So F I U had like a you know welcome to I I've been telling you they had this like welcome thing so I went over to the you you know the welcome meet the players volleyball fans or media. No it was just like a general like fan events season ticket holders know anyone who wanted to go there and it was it was pretty packed and part of it had to do with the fact that it was like freshmen. Welcome whatever it doesn't matter Asian. Yes the wall I was there you know I was talking to the media relations people and they're like do you WanNa go like talk to coach me coaching yeah sure so whatever so I went and shook his hand and I was asking about I was GonNa get attendance up and then they took a picture of us and then lost Western Kentucky. The funny thing is is that he he was. I think I was buying in which is not that I'm not anymore but like I was telling him because back in the day you know T- in you know if I use glory days of two two thousand nine two thousand ten when t y Hilton was there and by the way this program would have been totally different if not to tie this into the raiders have Antonio Brown had stated. Fiu uh-huh and Tonio Brown and the whole thing would have been on the same team history would have been very different but he got kicked out his glory days of the Little Caesars Bowl like the history would've been pretty similar it just would have had Antonio Brown with he wild no it would have been known as they would have been hard to stop yeah and back then it was the sun belt listen I it's a pretty pretty wide receiving corps for the for a for anything one of the greatest greatest receiving core the pros in it'd be elite eleven insane point lead in the bill saying that that would have turned into this powerhouse. I think that would have been a heyday for if it would be what it is now the same way would have changed the trajectory no orange bowl and he's talking about the time that made the little caesars bowl and Detroit red tossed by not in any position to be making fun of anybody. Why not anybody why five nats I got five Nazis there a long long time ago man was that fight you even play which I was alive for for for those nineties I was alive for three of which I remember but that's where to Billy's point though no I don't think billy's wrong about that in terms of you can gather some momentum from there? It's how Miami did it. It's how Miami Miami in one thousand nine hundred eighty three became a program Graham out of nowhere and won the national championship and that's how they started stacking successes on top of each other but you need a little more than t y Hilton Antonio Look at UCF UCF Owen twelve like three or four years ago only start building not long at all and what conference where they were they in before the American American I they weren't conference you say played there reality yeah so there. There's certainly a blueprint especially in this state especially if butch targets some of the the more he's getting transfer. She got someone that you know. Something happened at Georgia and he got that we're getting though I was trying to pull nicely of transfers right now cages. Hey just fine like we'll be. We'll be good those types of players the biggest issue right now with the team because they're decent like last year they had the best season they've ever had which which is better than all the ty years that they had when they were selling out the cage. Why don't you worry no? It wasn't that's the thing is that in terms of onfield performance Ormuz last year is the best season that they've ever had but the fans aren't going the students aren't going the enrollment of that school is like fifty thousand people. It's one of the biggest schools in the country in terms of enrollment and no on showing up and part of the reason is because they've moved the tailgate like halfway across the campus so you're not going to get this isn't going to be popular. You're not going to get the drunk kids that are there just a party stumbling into the state of now. They're trying different things this year where you have to be there after a certain time to get free tickets to the Miami game and they had a decent crowd for Fau Standards and you'll laugh at this but I don't care for Fau if I use standards at thirteen thousand people at the game on Saturday which is a good crowd for Fau. It's the most people that have been there since Bush took over as coach but the problem is is that you get them there and then you lose a game that you're supposed goes to win so people lose interest which is what happens every time that they start kind of getting on a roll. This sounds like Miami. I know what Bush has to do here. Okay I've recruited. NCW video game uh-huh he's trying he needs to not go out of his comfort. Zone with the foreign five star recruits needs to spend all his meeting times yeah and visit times which is just load up on those three stars Yep just get like fifteen three stars ars don't go I know he's trying to aim for issues in meetings with five five minutes on the phone a couple of four star guys. He's probably trying to work the don't waste your time now just load up on three-star guys and just build a nice core. I don't want to deflect here but what happened with. Fau like they were all main came they were like take a shooting star and since then I think part of the problem is strength of schedule because they started scheduling like legit Ohio state in the opener when he want the Higher State in UCF national champions. What what do you want him to do against those teams well? He's scheduling too many teams lanes getting a little ahead of him. I mean he he did a few years ago. He Played Oklahoma the first game that's why they do it. They start with a tough schedule then they run through their conference now last year. They didn't even make a bowl game. I don't think using two years ago you need to start start scheduling small like lane good for you God bless you for Getting Ohio State to play UCF or Fau but you need to play some of the smaller schools to get the bowl game they want to get that money they have a huge crowd for the ucf and I read about like it was a disastrous scene out there. What do are they call the ness like all sorts of crazy lines trying to get in the the sort of apologized lines out the door billy they can't get them all in fau well because it was a systematic breakdown again just a team? That's kind of the problem because I've run into this when you have smaller programs in programs that aren't accustomed into like big crowds when you get like decides crowds. They'd there don't really a minute did I just realized because Chris went to Fau. I just realized his the Shipping Container One a college football game six well. I one eight. If you consider Roy who I think cares about Miami technically I went to F F I u Ah yes. I care about Miami so you're actually in for yes. Donald Laws Zero wins in this segment. We just took times turns trying to drag each other's program billy. I'm too. I'm telling you when you mentioned that the tailgate was too far from the campus and the fifty thousand students there is a general discomfort discomfort that academia has with the football program being too close to the library and you better erase it. If you want to be any good at this shit oh I don't think it I think that it was a deal with the fairgrounds in with Tim Miami Park because back in the days that I was talking about the glory days as I refer to them that the fair parking lot was packed like it was a scene out. It was a fun tailgate but it's too far now. It's like a cross campus. WHO's GonNa walk all that distance yeah? I know it sounds ridiculous because it's like a mild is ridiculous but who's GonNa Walk Every Other College Program Cares About College football at Tennessee game and there's parking all over the place. There's walk a lot of walking to get to that but billy correct me if I'm wrong if I use he's had some controversies with Greek life and in the glory days of T. Y. Hilton the the fraternities were actually coming out in pretty big numbers and making that atmosphere if you're at the cage a bit more raucous but since then there's been all sorts of problems with Greek life. Fau and they've sort of diluted what Greek life is compared to what it was was that I don't know the inner workings of Greek Life Ryan wheelhouse kick people off Camp Yeah Yeah they've like they've they're all sorts of controversies regarding some of the frats at Fau that actually USA turn out for these things and if I you just like it's a bad look hazing all the I mean the BS. BSA goes along with the typical frat behavior especially in that time post me to Pre metoo movement and those were the kids is that we're living on campus would tailgate at their house and walk over. I mean help boost attendance and help making fun not ten thousand Frat guys play the game they they they they get they make that fun atmosphere which is like. Why am I gonNa go watch Western Kentucky? Fau I'm going to go there for the party's same reason. I'M GONNA go to Bethune Cookman Miami so I WANNA see backups. I don't want to have a good time at the tailgate. I don't know if you've seen the videos from the Tailgate at hard rock stadium that went viral with rippers yes with some strippers we alluded to it yesterday but tailgates are fun and I don't think the tailgating F I use fun enough to actually draw people out there because especially if you're going to end up on the losing side of a game against Western Kentucky I'll honestly say I haven't been to the tailgates since they moved it might go to the game and then I go home so I don't know if they're fun or not. I mean I'd imagine that they're fun. If it's the same people it's just walk and talk some more about the idea that this tailgate in Miami no one else is doing that to get more people at the same people the same. Dj that said I see a lot of phones and not a lot of dollars that guy he was a quality the dollars there were a lot of but I saw more cell phones and so did the DJ he was aware still got.

I can't believe that Gerald is presenting the quarterly budget report with finger puppets. Look here comes so one point seven percent decrease in overhead. Hello everybody nope I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on Car Insurance Gyco the Laura you though projected increase in organic Q3 revenue. I believe that Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance parents so let's just say I wanted to get a stripper for a tailgate party. Do I have to schedule this in advance is it do I need to know one through a friend. Do I call the Strip club. Is this an option I could call. Let's say scarlet down to add like the book stripper for State at this time so I'm not exactly sure how this happened I have zero information but I did see a couple of like. SUV's that were painted up or stickered sticker up by some of these establishments and I find it very hard to believe well. I don't not especially not in this town but if someone were to have the infrastructure to have the elaborate setup that we saw that video that went viral yesterday it would probably be one of these establishments set it up as a sort of pop up shop at like West thirty. It's a marketing expense. What didn't whatever they paid for parking? They just pull up their SUV. They lower the Miami Herald tents. I'm pretty sure that they would I mean. I don't know the backpack yes. I don't know the policies but I'm pretty sure that you can do whatever you want. As long as you stay within the lines at Sun Life Stadium there was no nudity beauty and I really hope this doesn't stop the party. A lot of us haven't been filming some of the things that we've seen out there telling you. This is one of the more hedonistic tailgate had experiences at the Miami hurricanes game. It's partly why I have season tickets that much more fun experience than a He. It's very common to be at a tailgate not just dolphins game like like a Lotta tailgates and there's people from Strip clubs walking around handing out cards. Hey get in free afterwards because I don't know why they correlate drunk people with going to strip clubs sports fans. It's weird but I just wonder if like they literally are like there's one guy with them and he's wearing a backpack does he. Just have some like you know. Pop Up poll. It's just like this is to get in after but if give me a little wink and we can set up right now you can do this right now. I never knew I had that option. I'm curious. I WANNA I WANNA get your answers on this. because is I've always found a strip clubs to be profoundly sad the guy eating a baked potato while he's there or the guy in the bathroom eating his Christmas dinner from tupper taper ware dish while taking dollars for Cologne after the Rolling Stones Concert Keith Richards and went over to Tutsies and stayed there all night he did my man and was reporting this and what I want. A friend of mine went with them and what I wanted to no what I wanted to ask you guys is 'cause I assumed that after a certain number of years you'd get tired of that. Ah Jon Bon Jovi goes back to his room after shows how things how he's GonNa conquers conquer the world are twenty years yeah so he says these guys is your twenty years older now. I know it's hard to go to sleep after you've done a show like that you know we're talking about Keith Richards I know how old is he is. He seventy five the seventy five he looks great. Are you saying you had a chance to go to the Strip club with Keith Richards. It's like my dad doing it. It's it's seventy five years old. Oh my father turns seventy six this week in imagine my father after a rolling stone show going to a strip club. I don't have to imagine it. That's a friend that went with them right. I mean if you're a New York. You're going to try a slice of pizza right. If you're playing a show in Miami Gardens there is a seminal landmark in Miami Gardens like if you WanNa see the sights. How do we explain Tutsies? How do we explain complex? It's a Costco that's a gentlemen's Club. Slash nightclub because music is thumping. I've never been personally but they have a cool sports bar and the food's actually not bad and so they say so you guys aren't with me on this though on the idea that Keith Richards too old to be in the stripped out. Let them live. How was he performing like did? He seem seventy five years old when he was performing well. I told you they came out of the box Chris. Were you there with your father. Yeah so you know what I'm talking about. When I say the first half hour they came out geriatric they came out slow and shuffling in you're like oh no what did we sign up for and then they ratcheted that shit up to the rolling stones place in the last ninety minutes you were like Oh whoa they can still bring it? I was surprised I was expecting to see a bunch of old dudes on stage and I was you know I didn't have a lot of high expectations expectations and I was impressed with the concert overall. Is it a miracle that he seventy five years old. Yes he is the standard bearing miracle folks in America. For how is he still alive. You cannot beat you. There's no one that would beat him if you ask the question. How is this person still alive if you ask the average American hey who's an old guy they your surprise has lived such a hard life? It'll be Gary Busey or him. Fen Rothlisberger Gary Busey was a really bad accident or like isn't that part of his whole battery before that he was he was also he was also a super super strange even by Hollywood standards Richard Seems like the poster child for me of anyone who's like listen you need to really take care of your body with Matt Keith Richards in Diet Keith Richard. Come on go to the gym Keith Drugs Richards. I don't need to come up Keith. She's done just fine and he's not going to a lot of people that we sign up for seventy five right now. Oh I'm not going to get to seventy five. No chance what I agree. I asked him. I I kind of feel like part of making it to seventy five is like seventy seventy percent will. I think that I'm not GonNa make it to seventy five but what's really going to happen. Is I'm GonNa live till like ninety seven and it's going to be like wow writing Organiz dreading. Both he's reading. He's GonNa die early dreading that he might stay too long. That's dreading you know hot. It's going to be fifty years from now. You're going to be a hundred and nine thousand degrees. I saw got Miami being here. In fifty years I saw that which is kind of a disappointment because you can't trade Morgan Pat and your thoughts you kind of have to put them into action before he can trademark things so for a long time. I've been thinking of making a shirt that keeps you cool because it's going to be really hot in the future right so like a shirt that just keeps your body regulated and now I found out that Sony's making air conditioned shirts which is basically what I thought except I don't know the technology science required to make it. It was just a thought that I had in my head like hey someone really should make something that just keeps your body warms he can walk on the face of the Sun John. If you wanted to billy you watch college Game Day yeah. All those people have air conditioned suits Nah yeah but here's the thing I've seen them seen the suit I want. I need it for the every man I needed to be affordable. That's really where I lose it because obviously like NASCAR drivers have suits that are filled with water whatever that keep you cool because it's eight million degrees inside of those cars but I want to every man to just walk down the street and wave to the mailman say hello and not need to go inside because it's too hot. You're saying Herbie has a a suit that has like a cord coming out the end of it especially her be because that's a suit I saw I'm not sure if I believe my. I want to believe Mike and we need to talk to Kirk herbstreit about it if that's true but I think when I talked to reese I think Mike Ryan is pranking us. I saw it I walked luck. I I might get in trouble for sharing these industry secrets but I saw a suit. Had it explained to me. I don't know these copper wires like going through it. There are these coils in I and it keeps you cool and they were at the University of Miami. We were there for game. Day was warm yeah. They can't you can't do that. You cannot do that show outdoors in Miami Dan sweating right now. You've never wondered how calm herbstreet is not sweating when he's had it was a hundred degrees and all that stuff yet now not really they have some fans ends at the pace but keep you perfectly cool. I figured something that brings body temperature down. They attach to get up and they walk around but there's like I don't. I don't know you were you remember. The first astronauts had like generator first divers that had like a cord that went up to the inner workings of the suits Mike Listen. I am stunned that I've been sweating on television across two decades and no one's ever told me this and the most let sweaty situation I've ever had was a marlins opening day doing highly questionable live outdoors and every question I took more and more closed off because I you know visually we were doing the joke of I was that drenched in sweat and I'm just learning now that I could have had wonderful coils keeping me from shame wrapping my body. I am shocked by this information. You need to get some of your live broadcast budget it yeah do make highly questionable like M- action and I think you can get an AC suit herbstreet also has a private jet right isn't he. The only one that the company on WHO's allowed detail. I don't know but obviously you're going to need some private travel to get you from North Dakota whenever they take College Game Day on the road and the the either the game there is not a game that ESPN has rights to or they're doing a different game so yeah he's going to have to get flown private lay from some of these locations you wanna hear good. ESPN ESPN story that I know to be true involving private flying because no one is allowed to fly privately no matter how high you are high up your at the company yeah unless you're traveling for a game broad right because he's doing two things in one day. Curb Street is in the afternoon that makes sense in the afternoon. He's doing game day and then he's got a fly somewhere. What else do you do two things in one day highly questionable were in I don't know on like they would have to provide you a okay but there was a certain employees who overplayed his hand in negotiations with ESPN because he's he was very powerful Foale and he was getting a lot of acclaim and keep in mind all across ESPN people disappear from day to day and you forget that they were ever ever? They're like no. There's no announcement next thing you know Eric Mangini just on Fox three years later and so there was a contentious negotiation and enduring that negotiation it was brought up well if herbstreet has a private plane. Why can't I have a private plane where whereupon whereupon all of a sudden the next thing you know no private plane and Trent dilfer is no longer with a couple of notes here? You're on the University of Miami as they enter a pretty extensive homestretch here in which the season will turn around on the schedule gets lighter and as I said these Games are home really really hurt over what the season could have been if they this execute. A couple of special teams plays whether it's a muff punt whether it's blocking gunners whether it's making an extra point whether it's making chip shots it's it's a it's a difficult season and oftentimes. It's a results oriented oriented business but still I don't know they're not a a different team. They're only different in wins and losses if they make these chip shot field goals right. It just feels a lot better but I still think a lot of the things that were supposed to change with a sort of new Miami are still there. I was sort of bothered by Manny D. He is and some of the players echoing the statement so it's certainly something that was mentioned post game locker room. The bye week is not a bad thing the bye week it gives you extra time to prepare for a game. The bye week shouldn't be an excuse for you to say we came out flat because of by we were unprepared because of the bye week that's an AL golden stuff and I heard those comments house like whoa one team look like they played last week and one team looked like they came off by what you got the doors blown off you right away seventeen three and and you were not prepared at all for Mack Brown who knew exactly what you were going to do on defense because you know for the second straight game you're playing one out of your old bosses. I just mayonnaise obviously learning on the job being a head coach and I think he's doing a lot of the right things and honestly honestly I admire a lot of the fight that team has shown in battling back into these games. I'm really excited about what I see with Jaren Williams and the running backs they made the the right adjustments in on the offensive line a lot of the precept penalties plagued them against Florida. It's another reason why you lost that game all but eliminated against UNC so you saw all growth and development you still see the glaring glaring mistakes that they're making on special teams which is single handedly affecting the results of these games even though there's one or two like Darren Williams just coming up short on that fourth down conversion. If you get a different spot from the referee maybe things are different but manny like the bike's good thing the bye week means you have no excuse to come out flat and do the same stuff that this program has done shouldn't wouldn't they be better at special teams all these other teams because if they're deeper right don't backup. That's a thing they're not deeper. That's what's the big difference between this Miami polcy merger and the Miami that was running south in the early two thousands I've heard a couple of podcasts echo co this sentiment. They're not deep. They have really good talent at the top end but if one player goes out you you don't have you don't have Andre Johnson there waiting in the wings to replace Reggie Wayne Hell right now your best wide receivers K J Osborne. WHO's a fifth year Grad transfer for from buffalo so that's on Rick? I'm trying to figure out what's the disconnect here. Why are we not deeper word where the upperclassmen while last year's recruiting class was very bad and they try to plug some of these is holes with a transfer portal and they did the wide receiver room we keep hearing guys like you know Mark Pope and Bryan hightower and know that that's a really good skill skill room and the wide receivers and then realize like but wise K J Osborne Jewish rolling in here from from Buffalo College Football Powerhouse Buffalo Hello and is widely considered being the best wide receiver in that room that should tell you way more also one of the problems before we get to calls the Red Red zone effectiveness of this team? They've really struggled in the red zone part of that's a kicker missing some of these field goals but I found it curious and I don't know if this was was a recruiting tool or what not we talked about how if you're in that wide receiver room and TAE Martellus strolls in and gets all these snaps coming from a quarterback position. If you're Bryan Ryan hightower Mark Pope you're like what the Hell I may have to consider transferring and Tim Martell doesn't get onto the field against North Carolina apparently less ready for for the position than he was after just switching and pope and hightower get all the sense but here's what I'm telling you where I think take more token help. NOPE is in that red zone because they're having a real difficulty getting teams on their heels and I thought take Martel for the few you play that he did check in Florida he confused them and he was on some big plays and he caused them to call a timeout. Having true dual threat quarterback in those situations given even the defense something else prepare for. I think Tim Martell can actually help you in your red zone package that he played a receiver he didn't play at. I didn't notice them play I again. I was trying trying to watch a lot of the game on my APP and it wasn't firing up but I didn't see tate Martell on my timelines or anything like that. Tim Martell check in and I liked. I thought his his package would grow phrasing. I thought the Pat Tate martell package would get bigger as time goes on especially with a bye week to prepare instead it doesn't and I'm saying maybe maybe he can help some of what ails team in terms of the red zone that being said they should roll the Cookman and Bryan hightower Mark Pope and Taymor talent. They should all get the planning to work at wide receiver against within COOKMAN. I Dunno because it's not available when they played detour teams have. CS teams seems like you can go and find it extra but it should be something crazy like minus forty. Something and I'm still going to go out there. I'm still going to support. I still think there's I still think the coastal is a is a realistic expectation. They need a win. All these home games coming up here. I fully expect them to and realize GONNA lose. ACC easy game. You'd have to think you'd have to think I know that they're down one of their corners against wake forest who actually can throw the ball pretty well so all these. ACC teams the Spiderman me there. They're all GonNa have that weird laws but now you're in a position where if you're in a tiebreaker situation North Carolina is a tiebreaker on you and it's just like I find it pathetic having the scoreboard watched the coastal with this Program Carolina will definitely lose at ACC game. The question is will Miami lose another one another what can you what faith can you have in this program over the last decade plus for them to be able to roll into some of these road. ACC He games that they have and not be an absolute dogfights like where's where's the road laugher. Where's like the road laugher has been Toledo and Appalachian State eight and we were nervous about those games so Miami's got I? I'm hopeful. I'm sure they're going to change himself with recruiting a main. Eds some bizarre czar comments yesterday about recruiting about how they're going to change the committee process because the really upset that players are using Miami as leverage like I'll commit to Miami then and get on all these other teams radars and disappears. I don't know how you enforce that rule at all especially with some of the more elite talent but we'll see I do think Manny de as is is the first time head coach and what he did with the bye week thing that to me sounds like they got a track around Duke and it's a longer walk from the lock around and that makes it a hard game I do like that. He's just very adamant about making trying to make Miami Miami again. Whatever that means? I have no idea what that really really means and I know he's probably already rolling his eyes but it's just he is like I want this team to have that swagger back and that's what really what it has been missing for the last twenty years. There's no win talent. You can have this or that. Get the winds you need to stop living in the eighties and nineties honest. That's the biggest problem program Graham is doing in the shadows thousands well two thousand one. Now I get a shadows of past success just put together a team honestly judging manny on this season in his unfair because he came in so late like he was able to do what he could do with a transfer portal buddy couldn't have a full recruiting class so you should about judging him on this team. The team wasn't good last year like the team is not the two thousand and one team. This is not the team from the eighties like this is a different team and it's unfair to just assume he's GonNa come in and and make a team that was what seven and six last year someone that's automatically in like you know national champion National Championship but like a playoff picture ideas even have a recruiting class under his belt coastal. I think we're really here's where we disagree on an even Jim Grabb fell victim to this who got wake forest to an orange bowl any any power five team that ratchets up your expectations by making it to one of those New Year's Bowl Games like this program did such that it was after getting smashed in the ACC championship ship game against Clemson and getting beat up by Pittsburgh to ruin your season as a fluky season. I I understand that when you look at the result probably shouldn't have been in that game but probably probably but they got to that game so expectations go to a certain point and I think any power five school any power five school that follows a good season with the season that that they had and then starts in next season Oa-to you'll hear the same sort of chatter and negativity around the program mark flatly I think it can you imagine mark Richt Alpha last season starts this season Owen to the way that Manny Diaz does everybody would be calling for his head immediately and I don't care if you're purdue but if you make it to a New Year's bowl game and you ratchet up those expectations pro the natural evolution of a program is you're supposed to go forward the recruiting class after they made it to that Orange Orange Bowl game billy was very good. It was a very good recruiting class and some of those guys are making contributions right now and then mark rick followed up with terrible recruiting class and yes medias was put in a bad spot and we should be fair held. Nick Saban lost a U. L. Monroe his first season in Alabama but I felt like that covered was a lot more hair than this. One is in terms of talent wait. I'm confused so after the Notre Dame season that was the start of last season right yeah so that was a good recruiting class. I thought you said but that that would be last year's recruiting class that would be the class of eighteen class of eighteen that saw that team you know Notre Dame and had college game day down here and there was all sorts of buzzes Miami back is oh would this hanover chains exciting. They followed that up with a lot of positive recruiting momentum people wanted to be a part of Miami and then Mark Richt for whatever reason rest on his laurels checked out on the job holds up cheese as balls didn't do a good job recruiting and for this class nineteen class act just came in. It wasn't a good class and you have a quarter a head coach. I was at temple a couple of days before accepting the job over here and he did what he could. Yes it was a difficult situation and you're seeing it right now. Because Freshman College football's change these freshmen come in and play right away and it affects some of the death and they plugged the holes the best that they that they could and they were in a tough spot many will get some credit extended towards towards him but even Manny Diaz is holding himself in this program accountable saying it's unacceptable and what I'm telling you is we agree. Stop using bi weeks as an an excuse when you love to have by we prepare for some of these games he can't come out flat. When you have a bye bye weeks that that to me is the most bizarre explanation football man? Let's go out to Sean who on his topic Barr says talk some Shit Sean. You're on the air. How's it going guys the morning Sean Hey this is lily advice before I get started we're kinda kindred spirit? I'm a Georgia Fan so oh I know just if you look at this two seasons before he was fired at Georgia yeah good records and we still got rid of them and they look look at see the actor we like seventy six so don't look at the season as a disappointment just looking at trying to new coach Yeah but you guys got Kirby smart commanded. He was the first time the first coach yeah. No I look he's learning on the job and I do have faith in Manny Diaz that being said we can all be disappointed because I don't think this is a bad situation many D. as walked into the recruiting class was in great and he had to do some damage control but it's not like he hit a team that was just a you know a season removed from an orange bowl that so as high expectations and the goal of this program was to win the coastal and to come out to everyone around the program Obama's appointee John. You have a lot of history with Mark Richt. What does he mean when he stands on a beach and takes a picture holding a bucket of cheese balls the crap about Miami isn't he probably I don't know probably I do think I do think Margaret gets a lot of gets a lot of crap for not being able to win the big one? That's always something that we heard and then Kirby smart goes right back in there and Georgia's still losing the big ones yeah yeah like like we've eighties. We've been living on that one championship so don't feel bad Miami. I actually cried at when they lost Ohio state but let's get to some of this shit that you WanNa Talk Gotcha Gotcha Vice Chris apparently advice. I have a two year old fun fact me her born on the same day so you're to you when you like the whole with the whole phone thing going out in public don't do it. I don't do it. Just don't go out in public. No Oh you don't give it a phone out in public. Just let her cry yeah. You let her cry like you. You say they example because you're you're giving her. The you're giving the impression that when we go out I deserve a phone because if I don't then I'm gonNA cry and he's still on the phone so you did at the house and you give her what she wants at House Sean do you have other kids are now I have I have a son I have a five year old and the reason why is because he cried like he's screamed at a store because he couldn't get candy because because he was so people giving him candy whenever he would go out and I didn't give them candy. I just let them cry in the store and people were looking at me and I just laughed like I let the I I I kinda. I I WANNA be where you're at like. Everything you're saying is the way it should be done but then you get in the moment and she's screaming and it's like I just I just I'm not gonna go out anymore to restaurants because I I no reason she's screaming because to your point is because I've set the standard where she's expecting this so when she doesn't get it starts crying thing. I know it's a vicious circle but I just I don't know I. I get so embarrassed when she's crying that I just feel like I learned do this princess man you shouldn't be bears at Man. You should embrace it like don't don't don't let people in there. That's your daughter like never been bedroom anything that you thought that you should start crying with your daughter so she she feels comfortable. That's a great it'd be funny. Enable Forges everyone's cry but it's not just a crime and it's like a man. It's like Shriek. These kids man they. They're so loud when they cry. I get it but I had a question from. I had a question for Mike Might I like. I like I like people I love fever and this year soundtrack for nineteen. I love and it's just one song. Oh my billy Irish which one you should see me in a crown yeah. I love that song as a good song have you have you seen the video I have not seen video and I have not played this year. I try to alternate years with FIFA and I hear things about the engine but here's why don't WanNa play fee for for this year they don't have like events his contract you've into sign an exclusive with pro soccer evolution or pro evolution soccer. I always get it mixed up. It's the one that I don't play and so they have a team that is like fake. You ventas doubt team yeah. MVP There's the two sides not event no no. It's not called you ventas. I've seen no no nonsense it is it's spelled. I'd like differently. Is this team couch or something like that. Hang on. I'll get a fee for you vent because there was an exclusive deal on this year's model. What fief are we? We're talking one thousand nine hundred twenty eighteen. I think that might be okay. Okay so yeah fee for twenty is what's coming out is it. Is it out already. I think it's already ready out about the end of this month. Okay so yeah so the reason why I think at this year's and we're talking about different years you're talking about last year's game. Yeah Yeah you vent is in. This year's has called pm on the couch. Oh which is not you ventas yeah yeah. It is stupid. Isn't it yeah but anyway the video I've seen the video and if pretty creepy video of creepy vibe if you haven't seen it and I have a question for oh you got on it is her and she's just like spiders crawling all over and at one point in the video she's just staring at the camera hammer over her open. Her mouth and a tarantula called her mouth yeah. I've seen clips of this. What are you sure where the spiders crawling all over her? I think that's computer graphics on the Tarantula that was in her mouth. Maybe maybe herself I looking yeah. The Tarantula in her mouth sounds like something that you know more practical special effects like I e her actually doing it but the the spiders crawling all over her she saying that she had vow although spiders crawling over yeah and and her mouth all that her yeah well. She's she's been dark. I like it with them. I had to pay you to put a spider in your mouth. I'd have to consult an expert poisonous spider. I I don't have a fear of spiders. I love how fear works. It's it's so weird. I wouldn't wanNA fuzzy wuzzy spike grandchildren. Are you guys. Are you know not poisonous. I said that I like Tarantulas poisonous summer. You guys have small spiders. Are Dangerous ones bigger spiders. I believe I could be wrong so don't go. Paintings fighters the dangerous ones or the smaller ones. We can all agree. Don't put them in your mouth. It's funny how everyone has odd fears like some people. If a spider or a cockroach runs in this room they'll like jump on chair and some people will just go up to it and try to get it plus it flies and then we all yeah that's true. I don't have a fear of spiders or cockroaches at all like if they I'm always the guy that I'll go up and try to kill it. What are you afraid of? I'm more afraid of like rodents like possums awesome like if I see a possum scurry under my car I'd be like terrified against Michael really birds with me. Yeah see that's weird but obviously it's psychological stuff like you might have done it. I don't think I've had a moment with like a possible so sean. What are you afraid of I don't know if he knows about like my race of people like people. We don't like people dogs. That are not our if you have a dog in the housing. We don't know we're not going to their house Roy. Can you concur. I don't mind a dog. I could shoo it away. You don't mind a dog with yeah yeah. I don't know what you mean by that like I have come up to the House dog away. If my beautiful baby Romo sees you out you gotta be nicer. I mean well. I'm GONNA be Nicer. I think the point is this kind of disagreeing with Roy. Yeah Sean would not talk to Rome Aroma which shoe or Roy with the dog Sean you. Would you choose away. Roma Oma know how big is the Roma. She's a whippet mid-size Greyhound and the pants yeah h you chew away Roma Yeah. I don't think don't take it. You shouldn't don't take it personal towards Roma. He just said he doesn't like he doesn't know he doesn't know Rome trained Roma and I will admit it's not great on a leash. Oh she's good at everything everything else but on the leash like she sees another dog or a cat or persons who wants to play with like she'll just start like pulling and being like really excited and getting on her hind legs like Oh l. Let me play and sometimes I can understand why people are like get away from me. Roma's never been anybody or done anything like that but you see the dog. All excited takes one John as someone someone as someone who doesn't like stranger dogs that sounds like a weird TV show that'd be a good TV show stranger dogs during you don't like when people are in public with their dogs off leash strike because you're like wow that thing could just bolt towards me second. This is crazy. You never know what your dog would do because it's a dog and you can't predict the future yeah. You can't predict what what a dog do. That's crazy any of the shit that you WanNa Talk Sean Yeah so I am the brother of former like I'm trying to figure out my brother Dad was receiving for NFL T. I don't WanNa give out information because he's very nice your half brother no I mean I guess I mean we don't like we don't we don't consider ourselves had brother like we have to say mother other but your brothers Jerry Rice. It's just because you said his dad like if you guys it would be your dad. Why not have the same mother but I don't consider him a half brother? He's my whole brother likes true too but yeah his dad played for. NFL team who went to back to back super bowls so no the super bowl were in San Diego and Miami so so I actually went to Disneyland and Disneyworld back so Rod Smith Smith isn't it doesn't sound rods doesn't want it Ed McCaffrey. He deserves your half brother. Christian McCaffrey your half brothers Christian McCaffrey WanNa talk you play cards close to your vest actually met I met breath law and Shannon Sharpe throughout the John John Elway Miami so you're getting Info your dad was a denver broncos. Receiver is the point of this for us to guess. It's the person you know not on that trying to get it. I'm GONNA find this ground assuming that it's not like a star Star if he thinks that yeah okay I figured I he declined. It was ED McCaffrey any decline that it was rods WANNA put. What did you WanNa talk about this situation trying to tell me that I can't figure it out? I'll figure it out but basically I went to both of those places and I cried each I I went to Disneyworld and I cry each time. I was scared of the et gotta need Barack ever. I never been on each era like I don't you you cry. The ride is great. It's universal studios lightly scary looking creature and now feeling like you you want us to find out the way you started that story. Has You really just want to get to et but you told us the information beforehand to disrespect. Do Anything the super bowl receiver do anything in the super bowl half to give the back so you could just said I want you gotta get back. They're gonNA call me a liar if I can faster if you call me a liar before of Oh. This is the delivery guy yeah company life before so bad to get that wow so good. I'm not even sure if this is the point he was making. I'm with Sean on being a little bit over overrated ride well. It's not going anywhere. I think it has like a lifetime contract or is it hasn't been replaced. I love that right. It's usually because there's no way no one's there. It's so funny. It's also good in the summer when it's really hot out 'cause is it has an air conditioner exactly exactly Sean so you still have never gone on e. T. is it Willie Green. Never where do you live not because I tell you what state. What area do you live in? I hear address anyone in Georgia just an armor. Do you come down to Florida often. No no aw no I'm coming. I might come this year for Georgia with. I've been I've been here. When is that the Georgia October Alright Byron Chamberlain or not? Let's make a Marcus Nash together. Marcus Nash Will Agree Sean Dog. You know what I have to tell you that this person was lying to you. He wasn't on the broncos. He's not going to tell you it is when you go down to now. It's in it's not in Gainesville. It's not that close. Yeah you WANNA try to Orlando will go on. Et together grabbed how far from Jacksonville close it would have been a lot better if it was in Gainesville Ainsley vercel passes expires. This is GONNA cost. I'm not that you've ever had I need the debate settled between me and my friend this last thing I got your jeffords. What do you need settled all right so we're talking about? My friends has talked about most embarrassing things that ever happened to this and I had three things and we'll do. They know which one is more bad so you tell me I give you this. I give what happened and if the back story to get debt but basically three things where I was caught literally with my pants down on my girlfriend mother off I missed I missed I based on the only home run ever hit and and somebody accuses me trying to steal it back from them. When I was trying to say to live okay we have a lot here wait? Let's start the first one so why scenario that you ended like with your pants down. Is that your mother in law said no my girlfriend's mother okay so yeah. Why did you end up in that senior? well snuck into the house one night when we're supposed to be there and she got up and she came checking the rooms and I hopped in the closet and all I was I was went into it and she came in a row and she hurt me pass gas because I was scared so she opened the door the open door and she has to be one of the hardest questions I've ever had the answer and I gave one of the top answers that I've ever given she said the Sean is that you and I looked at her directly in the eye and say no who couldn't wait greatest Sean. You Names Sean Yeah. I mean I don't I don't like to shine sorry Guillermo and Philly all right so so we got that scenario. You got caught in the closet of your girlfriend's house down to yes. I had to put my show and she saw your privates. Did you turn away so she saw your backside or would you stay for your friends. I kept my eyes for listening. I was stuck in all right so ways so she saw your private privates. We're just trying to get these three snares the first one to get all the details on the first one to assess how embarrassing it is. She saw privates no she didn't look down. Okay Avenue Avenue and I had paid my pants on the floor. He looked he didn't see her. That's not yeah that's pretty embarrassing all right so especially since most embarrassing part about that is that you fought it and that's how you got Kat. Who are you and you said? It's not the only part of the story. That's a little unbelievable nothing. I'm calling you a liar. I just feel like there might have been a little like you started and it was just like a I mean. She says she was checking the room yeah. Is it closing like I don't know if it was it was supposed to be wondering you know your talking about. I Yeah I guess if you please go about the silent allowance and I thought it'd be a silent one and it was your girlfriend was there to our no yeah it will oh her. What does she do with her daughter like you ops in house and she finds her daughter? I'm sure in a similar situation. Listen to your situation. I'm sure like you know they're all everyone's adults here. I mean what are you GonNa do why that's not no we were not adults who fifteen okay okay yeah and I feel a little. Let's just move on grants sean wait. You said you're Georgia bulldogs fan right all hi. What's what city do they play in? Oh God you still look into. What city do they play in? Just answer the question. Okay you got it. My what city do they play in Sean. You got it Mike Right. They play in Athens. Don't they shine receiver that played on both broncos teams that hails Dell's from Athens Georgia that receivers name is Willie Green. Give it to me. Give it to me. Shy got him. I said I was drew hoping that you'd say John Elway all right. Let's just gotTa get this all right. So the first scenario you get caught and in laws of your girlfriend's mom the second one you miss first base in your own home run in your life you said yeah I have a grandson. Offer you know slash is no you know flashing some of your pretend to pull back at less and you hit a home run that way yeah. Wow Okay so you do that. That's embarrassing. You Miss First base into Thurber. What was was it something with poop? Yeah I was walking across the strength and this lady but you can see the car. I saw the car but I made it she. She thought she could go when I was going so I think daily grabbed her and saying thank you or anything she's Oh oh. I thought you were trying to steal his bag a poop from me. 'cause you had two dogs. That one's funny. That one's not that embarrassing saying. I don't know in terms of embarrassing. What do you guys think I'm GonNa go with the first one I forgot what the second one was the second miss first base? No I coach had my coach had to give a idiot. You missed first base. I mean that's just a little aggressive by your coach John. Oh you did it on purpose. I mean it'd be sports like who cares about being nice all right Shaun. I've really enjoyed our time with you one more question question two more men. To what more do you know. What a double suicide greetings? Have you ever heard of here. Come on I mean I I'm trying to think I know what a suicide squeeze. You got. A double suicide squeezes all right. Go Go ahead. Explain it. I mean I guess is it where there's a runs I there's a runner on second and third and it's a normal squeeze but the runner second heads for third and they like wait for the catcher to throw the ball back to the pitcher and they keep going no everyone would be going up. It's a suicides no use no. No no everybody's still so it only works school okay now. I know it. This is this when the guy the runner on second cuts through and like yeah. I didn't know that had a name. I hate teams yeah that would because there's only two umpires in high school baseball so there's a play I'm trying you. Can you describe it sean the exact scenario of it. I know that the way it ends up is triple. Steals were there's two umpires looking directions and the runner heading from second to third like there's a way to get the umpires looking in different directions and he cuts the baseline and like skips skips third and just runs like from the middle of the base path from second to third and cuts to the EPA he he runs like what a pitcher what's the scenario that gets to this point what okay let me explain it all right so it only to pirate baseball and high school and you have a run on third and second and Umpires usually and Fr of the second base because he has to he has to steal look at first base and then home play empire is in charge of hope. I'll play so nobody's looking at WHO's on second 'cause he can only like it's only two. They're gonNA look so many different ways. So you put down to school. Use The guy from third comes home the guy from second he's still in two he cuts and right in front basically right in between the third base and pitchers Maryland and he doesn't touch third at all and he just comes straight straight home and then it's a suicide squeeze so the the the ball is punted the runners I understand the throws the ball to first base. I don't understand Antao all of a sudden. Everybody just like Oh look. There's two people will know all the dugout where to the guy and we'll be like that's Bs and then the offense will just claim that he went around third like it's assist shortcut and nobody can prove it nobody can you can't prove to the part that s what happens you can only say to upper. It's very rare. I've heard of this play. I didn't know it had a name double suicide but it is it's the Bush League of Bush League in terms of like is basically the hidden ball trick base runner all right well. Thank you so much for your time. I didn't think something could be more boring than actually watching baseball my God but that last

Ivy schools the only only if it bothers you because you spent all that time eating clubs in princeton while we were actually so wait a minute liz auger no first of all. Did you play a sport or something and i was actually a competitive figure skater all through like elementary school junior high in high school well <hes> i didn't go to university of delaware. Which is the school. That has the best like figure skating program. I also played volleyball but i'm five two as most most people now have tiny person and so i wasn't a particularly good center so college. Volleyball wasn't really set up for me. No pun intended or so i do that was awesome so i i my point of asking that was did you get into brown based solely on your academic merit. I would say yes s. Recruited athlete i did not i did not apply as an athlete now holy cow so just let the record show that that means liz is definitely a thousand percent smarter than i am because there is no chance that i would have gotten into the prince and are any of the ivy leagues without football so that tells you that liz is very very bright among her other wonderful qualities. That's awesome liz. Gimme gimme the background give your listener is the backer and that's the most important thing we'll get into the fantasy stuff but i always liked to personalise my guest. I are so i so i know you went to brown but go before that. Where'd you grow up. How'd you get into fantasy football and how'd you get the gig allen. I'll make it quick. I a group in chicago. My mom was a single mom. <hes> since the time i was thirteen months. I'm the only kid so is the her and i but she was out trying to make a living so my grandfather who who was the embodiment of the carl sandburg poem if anyone knows carl sandberg <unk> bit of a reference but clearly i'd like to read as as we've already discuss because the browns step but like world war two vet grizzled guy that worked on the railroads he was kind of my primary caregiver because my mom was busy so he was the guy hi who was you know taking me to to girl scouts into figure skating and to any of the camps and stuff that i was in and so i ended up learning all the stuff that if were speaking in gender normative terms like boy would learn and <hes> supports became a huge giant chicago sports fan and he unfortunately fortunately when i went away really wanted me to go to north western so that i would stay close. He was really really like to stay close baby state and i was like no i wanna go out east. I want to discover cover. What all of this is about. I can't say not brown so i went out and he unfortunately passed away the first semester of freshman year and i came home minutes away to grieve. I just started watching. I turned on the t._v. In the bears were playing the vikings and the bears lost because that's kind of how they do injured originally and and <hes> i then as a way degrees started watching every single football game not just the bears games and that became a tradition for me best word a couple of years. I'm dating this this guy. He's in this thing called the fantasy football league. He says to me sheepishly. One sunday morning and i was broke like i was straight out of college had no money was waiting tables trying to figure out my life and he had something called the red zone channel and he said do you mind if we watched this all day on sunday and like kind of hang out on the sofa uh and i was like are you kidding me. Are we ordering wings or chinese. Like what are we doing here. That's awesome. Let's totally watch football all day so i ended up like kind of secretly managing co managing his fantasy football team to a victory to a super bowl victory next year i wanted my own team didn't wanna share don't like to share so i okay <hes>. There happened to be a spot in the league. I took it. I won the super bowl that year. When the super bowl the next year then one day i was watching fantasy football live on which i am now a cast member which blows my mind and thought why why are there no women in the space. I could do this i should do. I enjoy this so. I started a blog called. The fantasy football girl dot com created a real life contact content schedule be logs put myself made it a job like made it a third job and then also started a podcast started a twitter feed and just hit like just was grinding on it and really trying to learn from others and engage with others and i did that for about four years before scout notice to me signed me to <hes> a season-long deal and then yahu paid attention in poached me away from scout out and niamh now entering my fifth season with yahoo fantasy liz. That's amazing first of all. Both your mom and your grandpa sound awesome absolutely awesome. I'm just picturing your grandpa taking you you know to girl scouts and all all that stuff and god bless him man that is that's a that's a man's man right there so that that is awesome that that really really touched me and then as for everything else that is really interesting and cool. I guess my question was when you went to brown and then you graduated. What did you think you were going to do. What did you major in you guys. Don't even have major no majors no grades yeah. We have concentrations ross kirk. I am so i will admit my first semester not just because of my grandfather's passing but just in general like i was a basic tom girl from the midwest to showed up wearing birkenstocks like i knew nothing about rich kids about east coast. Life brown was very difficult for me to culturally adjust to but i really wanted to study a whole bunch of stuff so the front my freshman year i just kind of took everything from art history to the history of the vietnam war to theater classes and dabbled and then i ended up deciding to major in theater and linguistics six my mom was not going to allow me to go to college just meter theater so she was like baby you pick something else and i speak spanish so i majored in linguistics and when i graduated i came out to l. a. wanting to have a career in entertainment and was waiting tables and trying to be an actress at the same time booked a couple of shows and was working eventually actually as an actress but it just wasn't you know i had my health insurance. I if you go on i._m._d._b. I booked plenty of things but it just wasn't fulfilling and i wanted to own something creatively blamed myself and that became the fantasy football blog. You are awesome heard about you from other people but you are. You're like legitimately awesome. This is so cool i'm loving. You're a go getter on so many different levels absolutely awesome. I'm fired up even even more than i already was. This is fantastic. What did you graduate from brown by the way and i graduated in a we'll talk about it off line but you graduated ahead of got it got it. We're keeping your age a secret. I guess getting mid thirties okay. I'm well. I i just turned forty so yes. I am ahead of you so we did probably did not overlap so that everything about that is awesome. I want to dive into into your all upside team because i think it's a great article two right before we dive into that though speaking of yahoo you leaders. Did you know that they have officially released their week. One daily fantasy football contests that's right. They have a one million dollar contest for week one. You're probably we not eligible for this list salary but no management fee a hundred k. two first place meaning more money goes back to you the players if you love liz you will love yahoo dot com slash daily fantasy. If you're just getting started with daily fantasy football joined the free to enter yahoo cup up and play all season long one hundred fifty k. in weekly and seasonal prizes and if you get a perfect lineup you win a million dollars by the way the perfect commercial perfect read yahoo dot com slash daily tennessee to tell you while we're about to have liz talk about her all upside website team because that tell you winning d._f._s. With upside people that pay off so let's get into it liz your quarterback jameis winston and i think that one most people can kind of understand right you know bruce arians no risk it no biscuit like that that one makes accents to me. I think you're running. Backs are interesting leonard for net as well as dion lewis. I will definitely was not expecting dion lewis as is an offside with all the derrick henry talk so let's dive in your running backs for net and lewis and and i know i read your story but sell the listeners and they should read you just story by the way as well just check out liz. I told you on twitter twitter handle. She posted up there. You can find it but i want to get a little bit from you liz as to why for orna lewis as your high upside dudes so part of the conceit of this article right is that the upside is relative to a player's a._d._p. Inability ability to return on investment right so when you're looking at leonard fournette and you're looking at and i get it. I get the burnt complaints. I owned him last year to write like you've got character concern concern. You've got your ability concerns. He's attached to a bluff offense in theory. Although i i am optimistic about flip coming in and maybe energizing a lot of what happened what could happen happen this year but for nets range of possible outcomes is an rb one. It has been every year since his rookie year. Which is why he's continually disappointed in. Why everyone everyone is so upset so when i look at his situation what competition does yeah we really are. We worried about a livelihood. I don't think so right like there's no t._j. Yeldan elden. There's no carlos hyde. Those guys were allowed to walk in free agency. Now they've added alfred blue. L. for blue is averaged under four point -o yards for carrying four of his last five seasons and then they used a fifth round pick on this while armstead guy who's already had a couple of dings to in terms of his durability so we know he's going to be a workhorse of course good luck finding one of those in the n._f._l. Something someone who's not working in a platoon you've got him. There and i also think when you look at this defense that jag that the jaguars have he last year they disappointed yeah. We knew they were gonna request. Regress probably not as much as they did twenty eighteen but i think they're gonna bounce back. They've made some improvement and and so this figures to be pretty conservative offense that wants to establish the run shout out to evans silva right whether or not you want whether or not that's exciting in the modern day the n._f._l. This team seems very much built around making leonard fournette work and i think when you look at those range of possible outcomes and we know he is one of the most powerful one healthy running backs available in the league when at his current a._d._p. Shoot don't tell me this guy can't produce rb two numbers. I'm in mm-hmm yeah i would say. Is this his third year fourth year at any rate. I'm trying to look it up but at any rate i think he he realizes that if he ever want to get a second contract that one way or the other the time is now so i'm kind of with you on for net for all all the reasons just mentioned i called their game on thursday night against the eagles and it's only four nets third year but he he's eligible for a contract extension after this year if he has a big one so i like the logic there for sure especially on the backups and or lack thereof and i and i love his motivation as well. What about <hes> dion lewis. That's not a name. I've heard a lot that one kind of surprised me now so so the dion lewis logic is obviously i mean i'd be lying if i said it wasn't tied to derrick henry availability this season yes derrick henry came on on week fourteen just in time to win a bunch of people fantasy championships but his usage was suspect will dion lewis lewis was used much more frequently early on in the season and and i think people have forgotten about his ability to both run inside inbetween tackles and also catch passes right. We're only thinking of him as a pass catching back but i think in p._r. Friendly formats that also buoy him because when marcus mariota he may not even end up the starter right reading some reports what's on wrote a world that seemed murky about whether he tannahill are like duffer sure start sure it's probably marcus mariota but could there be a changing of the guard. Would anyone be surprised by that. No part of that is because marcus mariota can stay healthy. His mechanics are met also ryan. Tannehill likes to check down that is good for dion lewis and when you look at the online online retailer luan urine special is right <hes> with taylor the one out for the first month. I'm guessing that arthur smith is going to tell his fragile q._b. To check down a whole bunch is get that ball out that also is a place where dion lewis can excel so again part of this is due to his eighty p._m. He's going in the thirteenth round. What else are you doing in the thirteenth route especially noting a._j. Brown we. We're not sure he's a rookie. We're also not sure about his availability. Delaney walker is still is one hundred percent percent right now. You've got adam humphreys which admittedly competes in terms of yardage with <hes> expected yardage with dion lewis but i think at the running think back position in the thirteenth round you wanna throw a dart lewis could definitely produce rb three minimal numbers thought it was was funny by the way liz it's because he's suspended for the first four games. The titans played he didn't start the game but then he played like the whole first half taylor lewan in the preseason opener against the eagles which i thought was a little bit weird because all these teams are has indicated there guys hurt but like like you'll have your best off into lyman play because he's suspended for the first four weeks like what if you tears and achilles earn s._e._a._l. This thought i get it but i thought that was is interesting but absolutely their offense of lying is in is it nearly as good with him out and then by the way what if they suffer an injury at tackle one one of the first four games then that's when things really get bad when you get multiple injuries or in this case it suspension at the same position most teams. The next dude in is usually pretty good. That's kind of who i was usually like not the guy you want starting but he's not gonna lose the game for the guy after that. That guy can lose the game for you and that guy can be a major major problem so i like. I like your logic there. Let's get to your receivers this dante moncrieff who i can absolutely understand and marquez valdez gambling which is interesting. Is there enough there for marquez. Vow skittling to eat opposite devante items liz that is an excellent point and that is the biggest question because it's very it could be very much that the packers three main players are aaron rodgers aaron jones if he stays healthy and davante adams so what's left i. I'm not sure but i do know that n._b._s. Is probably the most athletic of these receivers. He's going to have some big some big game. If you're playing basketball go ahead and roll out what boggles my mind and why i wanted to include them in this article all is the g._m._o. Is being drafted ahead of him that to me is such simplistic plug and play rational jimoh. Who is the only reason he's going to be. The the big slack is because he's not explosive. He can't make separation and up on the outside to take the number two spot m._v._s. find you a man who can do both right right like he can definitely work outside and in he did that last year. He and rogers have been working on their timing. When aaron rodgers starts talking up a player and we're looking in a post taylor done article life lifespan here i am paying attention and so i m b s has huge breakout potential and again. He's so damn cheap like why are you not reach your you. Don't even have to read from you will fall in your lap and the upside is there. He earned his quarterback troy. She's been prioritized by the coaching staff and also just for stats. If people like these he caught twenty three of twenty eight catchable targets be at the slot and also brought down fourteen of seventeen balls when working on the outside so his versatility is great drama. Allison has not been particularly durable or dependable so i think you could see an expanded role especially with randall cobb no longer part of that offense and those targets being fed at least partially to n._b._s. Find somebody that calls the packers wide receivers m._v._s._a. and g._m. That's my that's my advice for everybody out there about dante moncrieff with the steelers. I mean i have been on this. Take since april so it's catching got part of the reason i included it was because i am doing a little bit of that fantasy football writer. This was my flag. I sort of thing so i just look at people are like liking james washington now right because of his first preseason action where he hooked up with rudolf his former quarterback and i think he had a nice is forty four plus yard bomb from josh dobbs and like the first opening moments of the of last week's preseason action but i just feel like moncrieff on krief is a red zone weapon and this team is going to need to score some damn touchdowns <unk> big. Ben is going to need <unk>. Okay we could talk about vance mcdonald. Donald every damn year advanced mcdonald's supposed year. I liked dante mockery. He is a big body. He caught seven touchdowns with andrew luck. Two years ago in luck was healthy. I like the he has a nice quarterback. Big bend like the big ben's been talking him up and he's probably not going to have a ton of targets every week right. This isn't the guy that your high high volume guy. This is your high value target guy because a lot of those are going to be in the end zone tight end time liz and this this guy <hes> there's a lot of height mark andrews tight end for the baltimore ravens a lot of hype for a guy by the way that was a fourth round pick the same aim years they had a first round pick tight in but man i read the baltimore writers and they're saying he was by far the best player in camp so far which was interesting. I remember him in the u._s. Army bill. I called that game for n._b._c. and he was excellent. People are all into mark andrews has it caught brought up to his a._d._p. Yet lewis and starting to i don't like it. It is starting to the buzz will because of what you said right. It's not just that beat writers. There's are are saying that he's the most explosive playmaker encamp they've been saying that throughout spring and summer practices that's the drumbeat that people talk about it is becoming deafening happening. The buzz is mounting. This is also a converted wide receiver right <hes> a high percentile spark athlete and he was used. I used in college to bail out his q._b. Numerous times so i like what he's doing last year. He flashed radiate a let's see two grabs over sixty yards last year which is incredible for a rookie and i look at this receiving corps and there's a lot of potential miles boykin who i like to call kenny golladay two point oh <hes> he has potential marquees brown could do something if he get on the field otherwise though if i'm looking at the players who could bail out a explosive admittedly but quarterback who struggles with accuracy. I think a big bodied athletic tight end is exactly kalihi what lamar jackson needs and that's why you're seeing all these reports about the growing chemistry so i have him projected for fifty three grabs six hundred seventy eight yards and five touchdowns when you look at those double digit rounds where he is still available especially at a position. It's volatile as china. I'm taking it. Her name is liz loza. You need need to check out her stories over at yahoo including the all upside fantasy football team if you want to read more she. She has a lot of stuff there on james winston. I think most people intuitively understand that one.

Twenty seventh two thousand seven mark richt georgia football's head coach strolls across the turf of municipal stadium in jacksonville florida in just thirty thirty minutes his bulldogs will kick off against the florida gators and for once richt is brimming with confidence. Both teams are now five and two so neither is. I'm really in national championship contention but for richt. This is still the most important game he's ever coached. It's chillier than usual today. In jacksonville the the city. That's hosted pretty much every florida georgia game since the nineteen thirties jacksonville is supposed to be a neutral game site but it doesn't feel that way to richt it's in florida for crying out loud and a game called. The gator bowl is played here. How could it be neutral. Rick thinks as he looks up <unk> at a sea of orange and blue gator fans. The gators brought the bulldogs to heal in five of their last six matchups. It's given florida a huge mental edge and made the buttoned-up georgia coach desperate enough to do something crazy at least for him something with swagger. Maybe a little arrogance something something to get some fire in his squad's belly even if it pisses off some football purists something in other words very unmarked rick lake in seven seasons at georgia richt has built a reputation as a man of faith. Who's quiet decency stands out in the cutthroat world of college football for him. It's simple you win with integrity you lose with integrity. It's the georgia way. That's what makes this right now. Now the most off the wall moment of mark ricks entire career as kickoff approaches rick makes his way back to the cramp locker room stands before or his players and reminds them of his plan to snap their losing streak. He tells them you don't get a celebration penalty. After our first score you'll all be doing early morning. Runs runs welcome to jacksonville and the seventy fifth encounter at this site between these two better rivals however you need to to compete if you're going to have a real rivalry and georgia has lost as we said fifteen the last seventeen almost nine minutes into a scoreless game with georgia facing third and goal at the florida one yard line nine star running back no sean marino takes a hand off and jumps over the pile of lyman in front of him marino up attack jour-jour touch. There and here comes the entire team. Watch this for excessive celebration. We may have fifteen. Thank jamir on this one. I can't believe this was playing. This was absolutely absolutely plan. Ric decided that he has got to try to find his t._v. He's tired of having the psychological advantage. He's is willing to give up the penalty. Nearly every georgia player on the sideline russia's the field penalty flags fly in every direction the c._b._s. This cameras swing to the other side line anticipating reaction from the gators. Tim tebow florida's phenomenally talented sophomore. Quarterback looks confused. Sodas tvos coach urban meyer meyer is frantically waving his florida players off the field to avoid pointless penalties. Meanwhile rick takes it all in happily and knows his plan worked the gators her rattled as the second half unfolds. Georgia's still doesn't give away its leap stafford marino touch that the bulldogs match every tibo touchdown with one of their own and win the game forty two to thirty for the first time in years. The florida georgia game lives up to the hype a rivalry. That's been uneven in the last decade. It is incredible once again. Georgia's full team touchdown celebration quickly gets a nickname in the media. The gator stomp richt is thrilled but he's created an unexpected new problem while he made the rivalry competitive again he also just encouraged urban meyer tim tebow abo- and the entire florida team to spend the next three hundred sixty four days plotting their revenge that was just a preview of sports wars to hear the rest of the story subscribed to sports wars on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening right now.

Is it safe for work what you say for work. It's just like the baby shark thing i just can't. I can't keep listening that drives me insane. That's not how i want to start my weekend. Right is having this thing ingrained in my i._r._a. So you're fine with it during the weekdays. It's just the fact that it's the weekend again. Ask frozen that front. Let it go danika greece on this island alone. Do you agree with this down chalkboard cerebral. I like to myself with good positive high by music right. The baby shark is not an acceptable. Is that what it's called called. Yeah yeah it is. It's called baby. Shark is well. That's just there you go. They sing about different sharks in the family as well and it goes on is it. An educational program is definitely flee. Not there's definitely not what i think. You're taking dumber than chris. I think your take on it. You're you're trying to get yourself a spot in the pretty intense podcast castle right there. Can you just talk about dumb music album their congrats on your pod here pretty intense podcast <hes> <hes> it dropped the first episode of the kids like to say <hes> just yesterday yeah aveyron yeah. I guess <hes> alex rodriguez yes yes that a rod is there are there are kind of two but i really don't think of my a rod as they arrived at all <hes>. There are some people that do call him a rod that are like basically like i mean friends forever. I like the hawks like hockey play with a._j. Hawk for a long time was called samarra but i don i think of a rod alex rodriguez. A rod are due to i. I don't think of aaron as a rod mill but so allie aron aa iran iran iran is one way that you can go <hes> <hes> <hes> canadian tuxedo wish do that to me is very stylish. I go to him for advice and and sure enough. I'll go out and do whatever i'm doing and people are like really good and i'm like well you know. Erin picked it out so or he bought me this. Yes that's his tuxedo she does. What are we here this. He has a total sense of humor. <hes> anyone pays enough attention to realize is that i mean you just have to look at the mustache to realize he has a sense of humor and <hes> and so he loves sam elliott so it's really an ode to sam elliott sure and he you know i think that you know the scruff is the the the normal a good look and then you know this kind of grows out and then he's like well. I need to get rid of this. Oh let's just roll with the mustaches that's doing so well now and then it's the mustache for awhile oh and then it'll be a clean shave for about a day and a half until it grows back out again and then it'll be scruff over again so this was <hes> i mean they played in winnipeg so this was his <hes> this was his amish to to canada and he pulled the ball out and i was like oh. What do he's like. You know good canadian tuxedo oh and so i helped a little bit. Only i think my biggest contribution so he had a canada beanie or <hes> a cowboy hat and it said which one and i said you maybe don't need either. It's nice when you walk this fine line of like looking a little too together for a costume that makes people confused used and that's right the line. He likes to walk like are you serious. That's him if you know him very well. His comedy is like are you serious or even his comments sometimes they're like. Are you serious. Then people don't know how to take them by the way he looks really good. I would say that you're you're one note was an excellent note on a key clearly took that note because we there was no yet. He had the head the headsets on though he said we'll just do a nice comb over. I said that's it. That's it do that winter so he's growing that mustache rush out like how long i think it's pretty grown out its impressions. I said the other day and he was like he's like what i'm like. Your shush is just looking thing strong. He's like would you really mean. I'm like a little rough. I mean he's adorable either way but he he just has a sense humor so he can keep the mustache. All season valley don't care that would take me at least a month to grow out looking that very same elliott like it really really would. That's impressive try. That's a day and a half going in a day and a half pretty easily but <hes> but i think that that mustache josh probably takes it takes a couple of weeks of of like letting it go also comes probably from the heart to right. I mean you gotta have that heart of m._l._m. Elliott even attached him. I saw that officials sam elliott doors. I'm sam if you're watching. He really likes you now. Let's have dinner or appear on the pretty intense podcast right great and then i'll just have food ready and it'll turn into four our very correal there you go so what do you talk about with alex rodriguez. What's the conversation about. The conversation with alex was <hes> i gotta work the little backwards in time for him him from where he is now to you know more of his youth <hes> but we talked a lot about what he's really interested other than baseball which is numbers and investments than <hes>. He's been investing since he got into <hes> baseball since since since he was twenty years old so <hes> he's just a a real numbers guy and i'm intrigued by that because i'm not a numbers girl like i've i've brain meltdown as soon as people start to do one plus three more verbal than math. Ah i just don't do math at all now. Math is not for me so it's really interesting and also just that mindset of <hes> accomplishing something something else and other interests that you have and you know we're not one dimensional people we have outside interest other than just what you see us doing <hes> but then of course the the the root of the this show is to talk about <hes> growth a growth mindset and how to you know the human element of the stories but then as as a means means to an end of understanding how somebody grew from it so it's like okay yes your performance enhancing situation and being suspended and i. I don't really wanna talk about that. What i want to talk about is what came from that like. Where did you go as a human to deal with that and what were your coping skills and what does the what does it look look to be in the dirt. You know like it's okay to say how bad it looked for a second because it's relatable and so the show is meant to create a safe place to to be a little bit vulnerable to not really talk about the bad bad but really talking about how it became good well. I mean it's an danika patrick and the rich eisen show check out the weekly podcast pretty pretty intense. We're all podcasts can be downloaded with alex. I mean that's a crucial part of of what's going on with him or what went on with him because he was was. I mean the only way to put it off the reservation in terms of baseball in terms of just <hes> <hes> accusing baseball of certain certain things that sounded wild to say the least and then all of a sudden just turned a page turned right and a light went on. I don't know what what happened to count ability. So soon as you start taking accountability for yourself you have to be vulnerable because you're admitting faults and soon as you do that you realize that there's more strengthen the vulnerability honorability than there was in the hiding of it that it seems seems <hes> <hes> week to be vulnerable but it's really strong to have that amount of confidence and courage to to do it well in terms of strength in terms of being a woman doing something for the first time for you to have gloria steinem on that's going to have to have you recorded that one already. Oh yes i did yeah what she was like frustratingly refreshingly simple. That's how i would describe it because you you know i wanted to talk about these bem anisim issues and like cultural issues and even just just you know the dynamics of like polarity in life and duality and and she's like it's not real. It's not real and she just got to a very very simple place of have you know we're here to experience life right here right now. This is what's happening and <hes> so it was really like almost too simple and i think think we do try and complicate things as humans on every level and in every way we tryin complicate things and it's so much more simple than that and that's what you end up getting from people especially that are older that have more experience and perspective. Is this simplistic approach to things but you know it's almost like we get addicted to. The drama of complication and it's is not doesn't need to be like that. So who do you want have on your show now. Will you do it sure can of course thank you. I love doing home in homes the my home. I'll carribbean spot podcast. I love doing the back and forth done that quite a few times now. I'll tell you the secret to my success. I i'd love to hear that please <hes> i'm like have ten thirty five episodes and you've done how many years this we're coming up on our fifth anniversary and you install some interesting thing that we share to is hosting thing you hosted the espy's. You hosted the espy's. I've never hosted an espy's reason why i'm bringing this up. I'm going to go there again. What does that mean. The oscars is way too didn't have a host the emmy's of follow suit and i'm pissed about it. Is you want shot. Well not just. I want my shot shot. I'd just like hosts are not disposable. We are crucially important individuals for shows <music> on television and or charity projects. We must be a crucial component and i don't like wow this is going danika. I'm with too late to say you know what i'm saying. So you hosted the s._p.'s yeah and that's a crucial role roll like task experience exactly they have an s._p.'s without a host. They could have a rod. Come out with lebron or you know aaron comes out with drew brees and voice of god as we say comes down and says ladies and gentlemen to the stage and they come no but there are more opportunities than ever to become your own house. Oh so i mean look at me. I have any past history of that. I've never asked anyone questions before and here. I am sitting down with gloria steinem for over an hour you asking questions so there's more opportunities opportunities than ever though to be a host in that regard. I'm talking about award shows. You want an award. Show data on on your keep bringing it up like that's the kind of the undercurrent. Here's me not just bring it. All full circle with today's show with alex will being here. It's a slippery slope. It's a slippery slope when you grab onto the rock. That is a host and you don't have that right there you slip. What are you going to bring to a show as a host. Does that is a value okay. Here's what i would bring to those joe hard hitting question podcast intense great question great question. Here's what i would bring. I would bring a fun. What's the word floor. Ah the music thirty started. Here's the letter there's a letter d. and then there's a letter d. and there's dash bag. Okay okay okay free will and that person hey you will you will be able to enjoy all two three hours. If there is an issue i will come out and defuse news the situation if there is the wrong winner announced. I will come out and fix that kay. How is this this exclusive just to you. It's my own my own style. Who you know what i'm saying. It's me i've been i've asked the question. What does it what makes my podcast different than another one's especially in this emerging conscience consciousness world of like you know shows that are talking about growing and expanding and open-mindedness and growth mindset and self care and you know what makes my show different and so. I just asked that question myself a few days ago and i'm like me i mean i make it different. If you like the way that i run the show the line of questioning the vein ain of thinking if you like mice stories because it's an inevitable that you're going to get my stories along the way so that's what you have to like about it. <hes> <hes> if you're like that's one of the what's the name of this show. Mike del tufo remind everybody with the name of the show is over there. I mean it's a good one and then he he just takes forever to actually the rich eisen show so if you if you know if if you don't like me first of all what the hell's no matter where you but secondly i ah three hours with me. You know you might have a trouble but if not let's all hang out so i have my own unique footprint and fingerprint and on top of it for an award show. I'm kind of like the fan. Outrage espy's being sports <music> danika my s._p. Invitation has been law since two thousand three. When i rap skit of how supposedly got the gig yes yeah look and by the way the the writing staff is extremely talented more and i go way way back <laughter> love. It took fifteen to eighteen writers to get me that funny part. They they have that many. You know i know well. You're great at it. I'm just trying to bring up again. That hosts are people too. That's all i'm saying hashtag. So who would you want. I know you asked me which was very kind of. Who would you want to have on this show. What's the danika patrick wishlist here. I i think that oprah i mean seriously limit myself in my dreams and aspirations. I've liked to get get more than thirty five shows under my belt before i interview oprah but <hes> but i i i would love that because i feel like she was a a large part of what what got me interested in you know investigating into people rant understanding more about their story and and how it can help us and so super soul sunday was a show that i watched <hes> many times whenever i had time and i wasn't driving <hes> which hopefully the racist late enough. I could catch catch it. <hes> so super bowl sunday was always <hes> was something that was very helpful. In that transition. I also think somebody like a bernie. Brown would be amazing. Super <hes> great storyteller as well woah a scientist of of human nature and <hes> emotions <hes> russell brand would be really cool while show rogan <hes> yeah i mean there's there's a there's a there's a long list of really amazing and you don't want to crate and maybe you get this on the show too. Is that sometimes someone that you don't see coming turns out to blow you away true right. You're like wow. I don't know i didn't know anything about them or i had a different opinion of them and then you sit down and talk to them for a little while and you are taken back and so i also love the the element of surprise and that's happened many times with the show so it is it is a joy to be part of something like that and you should take <hes> if you get that sort of feeling you should take pride in the fact that you felt that way 'cause you if you felt that way and it's genuine than anybody who's listening is going to feel that way too and i. I love the fact in all honesty that whenever i interview <hes> whether it was on the n._f._l. Network for many years or on this show somebody he's saying you know i hated that guy. 'cause i root against him or i hated that person because i root against them now. I'm going to be a fan. 'cause you find out there are human being who blades aids was gotta live. Who's got family people. That's true for the world. No matter where you go or what you do people are inherently pretty good think some bad add apples but when you get down to the root of it anything that is projected that doesn't feel good is lit insecurity or a trauma. That's inside of them that they're they're projecting. They're putting on a <hes> a mask. Oh armor to protect themselves but at the root of it when you can get down to the level of vulnerability turcotte well check out the new podcast launched yesterday alex rodriguez and chef marcus samuelsson next week as neil degrasse tyson listen.

Are you ready for news update. I'm ready better being ready. Let's go hit a please and now with a special live report rock men with the news sponsored by the honda odyssey behind every little leaguer is a great home team with the family family friendly honda odyssey. Your team could be that much better honda the official vehicle of the little league world series. You guys settled over there. We're we're all it. It went on and winnipeg last night by the way you've never started a sentence that way never mind tire life seriously thirty nine people in their lives turned and refresh the hey. You saw what happened to manitoba never now look at you. Now i got. I got a little sweaty when we do the weather so here's the scoop but before you get i know you're like why in the world they played a game. Yes i am. Here's the plan game in canada is because when the preseason unscheduled came out the raiders still had not signed a lease with oakland yet i understand the preseason schedule was being formed right. The raiders did not not know where the hell they were gonna play this year because of the lawsuit that was going on between the city of oakland and the raiders the n._f._l. Said preseason week number three. You're on your home game. It's a home team for the raiders your home wherever that is going to be any time they thought it would be san francisco. They thought it could be vegas. They thought it could be any of those spots. Well finally the raiders decide. They are going to play in oakland. Okay that'd make the problem is as you know last night the as were too busy kicking the yankees ask for third straight times through so that stadium was occupied oh right and they knew that the stadium would be occupied so apparently they called called around and they found a willing home in winnipeg. Yes there's an issue last night. The players officials coaches or on the field. There were holes in the end zone where the old goalpost cfl the goalposts are indian zone right so they put her. They pick it up and you see. There's a square on the grind patch. It did not look safe so they decided after much deliberation ratio to play on the field and so let's hear from the coaches jon gruden <hes> i up says he liked the field. I'm not gonna make a big deal about the field. We like to fill. We thought the film was perfectly ready to roll. You'll have to ask green bay about that but then impact our play calling our evaluations we just adapted apted as they did to the new dimensions of the field you gotta. What were they thinking right over here. Let me do this i'm going to i'm going to channel my entering kellyanne there. Were they really thinking yeah. Mike del tufo. Sorry give really thinking here. We go all right man. Here's the thing we're not gonna schlep all the way to winnipeg okay a in dookie all over the people who roll out the red carpet for us. Even on a carpet did have a square in the end zone. We thought that was a good enough dirt and i'll tell you what eighty a yard field. If you've got glen on and peterman eighty yards great knock on wood if you're with me okay okay so the fact that that's pretty good pretty little more man man a few more man's well what glenn on and and can dominate eighty yards. Let me tell you some a man. We got glen on over there. <hes> so the packers we're going to play some of their starters. Malfoy ended up pulling most of his guys and he talked about that the plan for aaron to play before the turf conditions became an issue well we we were going to have all our our starters playing just as it was just one of those deals. I didn't think it was we certainly all played on much worse services in our in our life but it was just one of those deals where they weren't playing their their starters and so <hes> we just decided to set up. Camp can't blame coach for look <hes> i. I just don't understand how everybody knew. We're gonna have to take the field goal post out from where they are right. We're gonna have to do that and how did they not know what that it would leave a big square in the ground and that if they did it would have to be somewhat seamless last thing you want to do is send davante adams on some sort around over that and then all of a sudden. Oh i i mean it it. It makes no sense zero sense saw. I don't know how again the raiders are probably in a business deal with winnipeg and they were a business partner. Last grew is gonna come out and say that substandard. Let me tell you about winnipeg mun panthers last but at least hard knocks cameras hammers weren't there to capture this whole thing oh man they just stepping in all kinds of speaking abe you just had a big <hes> his his <hes> <hes> yes big day today schefter saying that antonio brown's newest helmet grievance today has concluded decision by early next week is is considered the likely source okay. Andy rappaport said it was the same arbiter that uh rejected his last maneuver so so so the operator is is is is aware of the president's just wear the new helmet. I i don't know what else to say. I don't know what else to say other than he's obviously really serious about it. It's very serious to him. He is amazing as as a wide receiver. Raiders need him to be all in mentally and the helmet if he's if it's over anywheres a new one which it looks like he's he's going to have to. He can't let it linger in his figurative skull and i hope for his sake ages balls out week one for the raiders saiki keep balls out week one and it's behind him fast. I kind of feel bad for dare car like they make this move. He thinks he's getting a future hall of fame receiver happiest pistola me he's still as though is though he still has i mean breer was on the show yesterday said it's always the little things when it comes to antonio said up we he also i turn to you during the interview didn't hit this again last yesterday because we we had a move on but <hes> i said to you had you heard before that the reason why hi he did in fact storm off the walk through field week seventeen and leave the team is because he was not voted an m._v._p. The season m._v._p. So it's the little things and this is a pretty big thing in his mind but just got through your the quarterback back. Your teams on hard knocks was a lot of expectations. They're looking swale now for the cameras. You're getting this dynamic player and now you have to handle this b._s. Because he doesn't like his helmet and suddenly now that's maybe going to throw off your whole team and your whole smaby. Maybe the keyword net frisbee maybe because in the fact act it's a big deal at the way that he looked physically to me in that last episode of hard knocks and the way that he's working out looks like the feet or not a problem close to be all all man is not many like him which is why he's on track for the hall of fame which is why just to repeat come full circle. What i said earlier earlier this week the kid who was slighted because he was slight of build or whatever didn't get a lot of the a lot of offers out of of where he grew up now. South florida had to go to central michigan to become a chippewa late round pick that guy still there we saw some of that guy and hard knocks working his ass ass off just whatever else going on inside the head that is not football as gruden said keep it simple. It's football keep. It's simple. Go ball out forget about all this other stuff man but we'll find out when that decision comes next week because if he reacts the same ways than the last decision right down. It's not gonna be no boy no. Did you see mike freeman of which reports article this week that he said he wondered if some of these antics of antonio the last couple of years might keep him out of the hall of fame. I doubt it maybe to keep him out. As a first hall famous ones found out maybe but t os in <hes> scare last night a new england with the carolina panthers cam newton went down <hes> with a foot injury <hes> he is back in charlotte. Official diagnosis is a mid foot sprain x-ray other tests <hes> g._m. Mardi her and he said the team is cautiously optimistic. That cam would be ready in two weeks for week. What now hope so man. I hope so <hes> what he was getting beaten like the proverbial rented mule around the right end. There yeah pat's d. look pretty good. You know look pretty good last night j. switch no he's had t._b. Twelve oh yea with the exception of the hat. What was the the hat. I i don't know in this latest episode of if j._j. Watt had done it. I'll give you the floor chris brockman <hes> j._j. Watt doesn't have six titles three m._v._p. He's <hes> giselle to step aside if it was j._j. Watt chris brockman the floor is yours. I mean is this hat to camping in the building okay. Tom's worn hats like this is a he tagged. He tagged the hat maker instagram. Yesterday he wore stuff to the kentucky derby like this. It's the same guy hi that cam newton the t shirt door look. We've never seen it on t._v. Twelve it makes them look younger. You know what also makes them look younger balling out like he did last night you throw the laser also ran for i down. What the hell was he doing there. He also scrambled for. I doubt stop at tom. Oh man but some of the dime he was throwing good. You even tweet oh you might say now fantasy. Now i said i read. I'm just i'm just kidding but he did look awesome last night and wait till sony. Michelle gets unleashed a told you a big season for him too high on sony michelle okay so it wasn't all good news for tom. The tom terrific thing that was going on <hes> during o._t._a.'s so so his attempt to trademark that was turned down <hes> it was said the patent office said that <hes> tom terrific points uniquely unmistakably stake ably to tom seaver and given the fame and mark and use in connection. <hes> consumers will falsely associate. Tom brady with tom seaver and that was made by a clerk at the u._s. Patent and trademark office named joey from queens joey from a story aurea made that ruling that was a big deal couple of months ago okay so we like to look people social media right. Did you see what zeke re tweeted yesterday yesterday or joe thomas should be the highest paid joe. Thomas went on a rant about zeke. <hes> the one that zeke re tweeted that throughout the course of n._f._l. History if you're the best player at get your position or clearly one of the best which i think we agree zeke is when you re signed a second contract with the team that drafted you usually beat the highest paid current contract at your position position by fifteen to twenty per cent yeah. I know he also did. I guess zeke didn't re tweet joe saying that even if you do counter in the off the field stuff that the the <hes> cowboys might wanna get a discount yes but he said he should be done early bath by five percents right it makes sense. I'll tell you again. Marshall faulk said yesterday. Why does the running back market need a market research and i'm like well. Levy bell kinda did by not taking more than todd gurley right. He didn't wanna hear any of that. I wonder if he's making zeke puke as we speak says. He said he's flying down today to go work them out. That's making the rounds that was n._f._l. Live today couple of pop culture thing's amazing what people pick up. I mean the other stuff that marshall said yesterday in my mind far more insightful full about what zeke's thinking might be where he told me i'm going to eat del tufo sat and week long not be not just because of i imagine what zeke's position is going to be on on the contract but the fact that jerry jones has done this before with his star running back into the season for team. That was no question super bowl ready as i believe these cowboys are but anyway what else sir adds to pop culture things <hes> peop- people dot com reporting lindsey vonn and p._k. Sue banner engage. Hey congratulations congratulations to them and a new t._v. Show that adam mckay's working with h._b._o. About about the lakers jeff perlman's book showtime michael shannon's gonna play jerry buss.

Wow like that who should play pat riley. People were wondering that man obviously pat riley was in wall street so but i don't know if michael douglas is gonna do that.

I'm doing what a lotta grilling and cooking tomorrow then i have been spent on researching my fantasy. You know who does when does the draft starts starting at eleven thirty a._m. Tomorrow carl that is not enough so and again i will repeat for the rich eisen show viewing and listening audience. What you're about to hear is the dumbest at fantasy football draft rule ever the absolute positively i would never do it. I would never wanna be in a league and the fact that i love love chris brockman so much that he still leaving allowed to be in my presence to even say these words go forward that how many how much time is there that you're allowed to take on picking players. There's a little flabbergasted here yeah. There's no time there's no time limit so normally are are drafts. Take between seven and eight our people out of there. Could you imagine imagine you know we give a lot of grief because like one of our buddies. He's been on the show before jason. He took twenty eight minutes to take brian heartline. One year means serious eighth round would is he is he's not here. He's not here. He's not allowed. They formed last year took thirteen minutes to take jack doyle. You know what that is. Just i blacked out because jackdaw. It was so disrespectful in my league in my poker league with all my poker buddies. We have ninety seconds to make a pick and anybody who gets passed sixty seconds. We'll get heckled heckled. The last thirty seconds pick is being made with foil on verbal abuse being heaped upon the individual. That's taking longer than a minute to choose. Somebody and you're like taking thirteen minutes on jack doyle. No one you take shoes off on a plane. You just don't care about the well being and welfare of other the people it's obvious holy. I can't argue. I get defend myself next monday. We start off <hes> andrus iliana my colleague colleague from n._f._l. Network but also <hes> the host of red zone here on direct t._v. <hes> ryan leaf will be here as well and i cannot <hes> be more excited to report that whitney cummings returning show the real one not the not the.

It looks like he may not dominate the competition and download new episodes of these shows and more every week on apple podcasts and podcasts <music>. It's october twenty seven two two thousand seven mark richt georgia football's head coach strolls across the turf of municipal stadium in jacksonville florida in just thirty minutes. His bulldogs kickoff against the florida gators and for once richt is brimming with confidence. Both teams are now five and two so neither is really a national championship contention but for richt. This is still the most important game he's ever coached. It's chillier than usual today. In jacksonville the city. That's hosted pretty much. Watch every florida georgia game since the nineteen thirties. Jacksonville is supposed to be a neutral game site but it doesn't feel that way to richt. It's it's in florida for crying out loud and a game called. The gator bowl is played here. How could it be neutral. Rick thinks as he looks up at a sea of orange. The engine blew gator fans. The gators brought the bulldogs to heal in five of their last six matchups. It's given florida a huge mental edge and made the buttoned-up lightened up georgia coach desperate enough to do something crazy at least for him something with swagger. Maybe a little arrogance something to get some fire. The squad's belly even if it pisses off some football purists something in other words very unmarked in seven seasons is at georgia richt has built a reputation as a man of faith. Who's quiet. Decency stands out in the cutthroat world of college football for him. It's at simple you win with integrity. You lose with integrity. It's the george o way. That's what makes this right now. The most off the wall moment of mark ricks entire career as kickoff approaches rick makes his way back to the cramp locker room stands before his players and reminds them of his plan to snap their losing streak. He tells them if you don't get a celebration penalty after our first score. You'll all be doing early morning. Runs welcome to jacksonville hill and the seventy fifth encounter at this site between these two better rivals however you need to to compete if you're going to have a real rivalry and georgia has lost as we said fifteen at the last seventeen almost nine minutes into a scoreless game with georgia facing third and goal at the florida one yard line star running back no now sean marino takes a hand off and jumps over the pile of linemen in front of him marino up over the top. Georgia touchdown and here comes the entire team watch. Is this for excessive celebration. We may have fifteen handke's in the air on this. Why can't believe this was playing. This was absolutely plan. Rick decided that he is going to try to fight his team up. He's tired of having the psychological advantage. He's willing to give up the penalty. Nearly every georgia player on the sideline rushes the field penalty flags fly in every direction the c._b._s. Cameras swing to the other other sideline anticipating a reaction from the gators. Tim tebow florida's phenomenally talented sophomore. Quarterback looks confused. Sodas otas tvos coach urban meyer meyer is frantically waving his florida players off the field to avoid pointless penalties. Meanwhile rick takes it all in <unk> happily and knows his plan words. The gators are rattled as the second half unfolds. Georgia still doesn't give away its leave their stafford the marino touch the bulldogs match every tibo touchdown with one of their own and win the game forty two the thirty for the first time in years. The florida georgia game lives up to the hype. A rivalry. That's been uneven in the last decade is incredible once again. Georgia's full team touchdown celebration quickly gets a nickname in the media. The gator stomp richt is thrilled but he's created an unexpected new problem while he made the rivalry competitive again he also just encouraged urban meyer tim tebow and the entire florida lord of team to spend the next three hundred sixty four days plotting their revenge that was just a preview of sports wars to hear the rest of the story story subscribed to sports wars on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening right now.

Miami Herald sports columnist an expert in south flor-. Sports and the situation for south Florida sports, appears to be pretty dire. Everyone is struggling it's been better. Everyone is struggling and the one team that we were supposed to count on pause up who we're talking about a thought, you know. No. But that's that's an extremely baby. How about those Bush cats yea Butch cats, certainly an exciting story, but the one team that everyone was sort of pointing to to sort of take that next seven be legitimately good team in a sea of bad and wagon. No, not the panel cans everywhere. The Miami hurricane and there's all sorts of. Anger surrounding the program right now, they've been the most disappointing. Right. They for rating. Oh, yeah. Like who's been the most support? I don't know, Greg. What do you? What do you think considering the expectations? I mean. Yeah. The expectations were tempered by the idea that last season didn't end will then with three straight losses. So you factor that in, but I agree that they've been the most disappointing to losses in a road of Jinyan BC unacceptable in you know, I think you can't help. But contrast Rix current struggles with to the north UCF is just absolutely sailing. Yeah. They had a great year last year. No hiccup. They cross leaves. No hiccups. Exactly. I mean, and that makes you you wonder because you're always gonna compare at phones should be on vibrate. I know you're always going to compare you against the state. I always used to be the big three with Florida and Florida's state. And now you have to add, you know, the knights of UCF. And it's not looking good as a comparison for Miami. Did I see was it Rozier or the team that's lost six out of eight against power five teams? I saw that stat. I'm not sure if it's in rose your starts or it's just we lost. I mean Perry baby Florida state, and that's our five team. And Rosia wasn't starting that game. They also be North Carolina which is power five team and Rozier was inserted in that game. Yeah. So it sounds right. Yeah. It sounds right. I thought we were past losing to Virginia and Boston College. The Boston College game was south both teams had an extra week to prepare. I thought Boston College did some different things Miami did the same exact things that they've been doing all season, which is milk toast. It's so predictable so predictable. And so many people are mad that Rozier is still starting. And I think it's been a little unfair. What Mark richt is getting because a lot of people seem to think that Mark richt is tethered to me grows year. When Mark Rick has been nothing, but honest when. When it comes to me Crozier, he was honest with Kaya too. So I would I would lay this out there for you. Rozier was not Mark Ricks recruit. Cozy Perry was Mark Ricks recruit. And cozy Perry came in as a highly touted recruit, I believe he was third in terms of dual threat quarterbacks. If anybody would be tendered tomorrow Rick would be Nicosea Perry. Why would he have this sort of blind loyalty to me Rozier, right? I pose you suggested more is going on here than just what you're seeing on the field which hasn't been great by any stretch of the imagination. There have to be some other issues that haven't been reported on publicly is he being punished for the thing that was reported on publicly for the the cash money in my lap video. That's what it's seems ever since. Then like seems like he's just gone back to Royal. I think what happens is the situation is Mark Rick doesn't have a quarterback he trusts. He didn't trust me Rozier, which is why he benched him for Perry. Perry pretty quickly demonstrated that maybe he's not ready to lead a team. And so he goes back to the safe choice, which is Maliki to Mike point though. I feel like if it if he really wanted to like like see what he's got he'd go with the young guy. Like there must be something going on like if they're both equal you go with the younger guy. Well, here's the thing. He's still trying somehow to miraculously get into the ACC championship game. He hasn't given up on this season. So I think he's going with the safe choice who he feels like gives him the lowest risk and the best chance to win. You know, in you know, coaches think I mean in his mind they're going to finish nine and three and get into the ACC title game. And he's probably not thinking like this. But then get beat by forty by Clemson again, and by the way, the Gulf between Miami and Clemson Miami Beach, Florida state by one point and we saw what Clemson did FSU. I mean, it's it's such a Gulf between the Clemson Florida state had one of those out golden, Clemson games, and the athletic director that hired Taggart took Oliver looks position in the college football playoff committee. So he might actually be in some legitimate trouble. As far as job security goes, which if you're in Miami fan, you wanna see Taggart there as long as possible, I know recruits. Well, but the results on the field. He's never done. Well, in terms of win laws even. South florida. They got really good after he left Oregon improving after he leaves. So you wanna see Willie Taggart there as long as possible? Would you still go to the championship game? If it's Miami Clemson. Yeah, potentially if. Got blown out by Clemson last year. And I had a wonderful time. Okay. In Charlotte being ACC championship is some sort of reward. And it helps at the Clemson fans are the nicest in college football. If they were jerks. I would not be if they were jerk fan base was actually going to blow the doors off of us. I would have zero interest in going. Let's talk about the Miami Heat last night things were actually going well over the weekend. Nice win over a good Portland. Trailblazers team. Really nice win. The offense seems to be clicking. Josh Richardson's taken some steps you who shall not be named as actually playing really well. And that's why last night was kind of confusing. I know the kings have been playing a little bit. Are they a good team? Or are they still the kings? They're they seem they've had some results on Shumpert plan really well for them. But he I'll yield. Willie collie Willie Cauley sign. Well, it was so confusing. I watching you get a career high thirty one points from Josh Richardson. I don't even know if he finished with that. I saw thirty one. So he had thirty one points a career-high. He shall not be named a monster game on the glass yet. Rebound something like something along those lines, four rebounds. Most by any guy in the NBA this why he shall not be named could not stop Willie. Call a sign on the other end. And it's just one of those head scratching losses at this team. As in them, it's been the same sort of team. They lost city Aaron FOX last year. So it's been the same sort of results in that tends to happen. When you try to out the very same team. It's it's very early to even sketch any sort of judgment on the heat exacerbated by the fact that I don't feel like we've seen the heat yet. You know, we James Johnson has to get back and be a presence. They really miss Ellington Henry's. Ellington was available. Hasn't been playing the last couple of games what's up with that? Jerry Jones junior stopped playing all of a sudden in the rotation was very odd last night. I heard the mentioned on on the local hour. And I thought says low made a good point the morning show the morning show here. This is a local. Yeah. My bet. There's too many guys to get minutes for right now. I think they have all the same guys. Yeah. It's like tunnel. Johnson is pretty useless at this point to be honest. There's just too many guys win Johnson is healthy again and telling useless rotational, pretty useless nineteen and a half million. God what a what a trade with a trade kicker, by the way a contract. They gave him a thank you very much Brooklyn nets. But continue to your point my point is I don't feel like I've seen the heat yet. I still think they're going to be what everybody thinks which is the the team that's four or five games over five hundred fighting for the seventh seed I feel like I feel like I've seen this team for two year. I I understand what he's saying. But I've seen the heat, and it's the same guys. They have. Have a bunch of guys. That's why they actually play well in the face of injury. They can afford James Johnson being out because Justice are just comes in. And he's just younger James Johnson. They have a lot of guys that do the same thing. They have a bunch of like seventy five video game. So one goes out you just coming eighties. Yeah. It was seventy eight sometimes you replace them with a seventy six not that big of a drop off. No stars. No. And it's weird. Because Dwayne obviously is still on the run. So but he's a shell. Well, whoa. He's plan. Okay by leeann. Yeah. Game home Orlan Ed game. I mean, the shooting has been there. He does look a little slower this season. I I will say, and I don't think he's back to maybe. That's just what he is. Do you think twain Wade's invested in getting in the same kind of crazy shape, or is this pretty much the Dwayne we're going to say farewell tour? It is a farewell tour in every sense. The thing to watch with weighed in these games is who is going to give his jersey to at the end of the game. Right last night. I was like he was that center court. There was a lot of. No, there's no one really on the kings. They like that's the guys to I didn't see I don't think he gave to anyone last night. I force it, right? Like Shumpert came up to him. And I was like he's not going to give it to Shumpert. And he of course, you could bet Shumpert in his mind is like I'd love this jersey. But I'm a mon- Shumpert. So I don't want to ask and get rejected. I mean, the kings are four and three they've won three in a row Iman Shumpert plan. Well, well, well, Wael maybe he is a free agent wail on data in them boys surprising outweigh you wanted to talk about expectations. And how the Miami hurricanes considering the? Expectations have fallen on their face irrefutable. But the Panthers in their own sport and their respective sport have fallen on their faces and they had pretty maybe equally high expectations. Yeah. Absolutely was supposed to be a playoff team to season. But again slow store slow to use where people saying that besides people in south, Florida. No people were saying it naturally. They will say that they were going to be a playoff team it made perfect sense. Didn't they set the record for points without making the playoffs? I think they're the only only the third team in history in NHL history to have over how many points they finished with these. So I think there were only the third team in history that had over ninety five points at miss out on the playoffs. They brought back their young core. They have these guys on cheap deals. I understand the injury Tila Longo, but this is the same sort of situation with the Miami Heat where you lose a seventy eight golden place them with a seventy six maybe and not to get the the slope into Finland this week. I mean to hurt going somewhere else. I mean, they've been bad everywhere. Yeah. I'm not so worried about the travel this is so they've gotten themselves in an early hole, if they could just also second periods, though, I feel like it'd been bad, you know, to leave. So they've gone themselves into this early hole and then inevitably January slash February. They'll go on a heater. Yeah. And that's heater will put them just five points out of the final playoff spot. And it's deja fricken wvu with this team again. Yeah, we got break this trid. We've done that. Once we made the playoffs. Hopefully, hopefully, soon they'll start to get this heater that you're talking. Well, no, no they made the playoffs when they started. Well, when that was when Yager was here, they have never, and they are amazing at this whenever they've gone on that midseason surge to be just five points out of the late last playoff spot. They have actually never gotten the spot that they're chasing. Right. They have done this dating back to the David booth days. They had done this for twelve straight years. Where they start slow, and there are these expectations that they'll actually make the playoffs because the previous year they did the exact same thing. And they just miss out on the playoffs. What is with this team? Are they cursed? This is the most consistent thing in sports that they're going to be five points out of the final playoff spot, and we're gonna get excited and oh they're just three points back now. And they got a couple of games in hand because they had this weird scheduled to start the season. And guess what it will end five points out of the final playoff spot. If I didn't if I actually cared. I'd be really upset about this. Oh, the top and a wildcard. But he lost a tiebreaker with ten games left. They're going to definitely have to win six of them or seven to get in. And another thing who likes the way that the playoffs are structured in the eastern west using once in a weight eastern Western Conference. What is this metropolitan division? I don't understand any of this. Greg look at Greg. I'm greg. Have you even cared to research, the new NHL playoff format? It's confusing as all hell. It is just like they're all star game changes formats every year. It's insane. But I will say this about the Panthers don't write him off yet. And here's why beyond the fact that it's early. I mean, right him on ROY see what you think about this comment there. I think five of their first eight games have have gone to either shoot out or overtime. That's right. They ain't getting blown up by five goals. I mean, there there a very you guys are having the same homecoming homecoming for barky homecoming for Joe hula, Mika are signs that the Panthers aren't close games. Yeah. Yeah. They're not a bad team. If we could just not play second period. Roy. Oy. Period. Yes. I think it only win some of these outs. It's this same conversation. We've had I interned there. When I was eighteen years old. They were having these guys it wasn't NHL lockout season. And yet they were still five points out of the final playoff spot. It's absurd that we do this with this team. At least we'll get one point nine the deal every time exactly the same exact point. So we I am I your counterpoint telegraphed with this team. It's the same thing with the hurricanes and the heat too, though. I mean, well who the same every time, you know, Billy the hurricanes made it to NEC championship game. By the way, we finally bucked the trend. I heard you say that you'd be happy. If they got there this year that is not what the attitude was going. No, no, we'd be lucky. No, no, no visiting Billy. This season's been incredibly disappointed for the Miami hurricanes. I thought that they make it to the ACC championship game. Maybe with one loss whether it was in that LSU game or some rain ACC loss. But I thought they would get back to the ACC championship game. Easily. And then this season was about seeing how much you could close the gap between Clemson and them understanding that Clemson is still probably a few years ahead. But this losing to that quarterback Perkins in Virginia who was somehow the worst quarterback on the field, and there were three bad ones. No, no. No. No. No. No. No. No. No, no this. This cannot stand. The gaps got a wider. Oh, yeah. Absolutely. I mean, come sin. They got the quarterback a true freshman Trevor Lawrence looks better than anything. We've had walked through here on shine. I mean, it's absurd Bill. You're actually right about this team ever. We are going to schedule early on. We were all like all win win win. You're like how many more loss? Do you think they're going to house stop? Let's not do. Well, here's here's the thing. All counting bowl games or no bogus. Well, you gotta count if they're playing a power five you gotta count that. They're losing the ball game. But I I actually is embarrassing say I had a feeling we didn't talk much canes over the last few weeks. But I was telling you have from a few. Two months the random ACC loss was coming primetime at Boston College. So my Princess of you, they're gonna lose. No, man. No remember going to saying that Iran is I found the random ACC loss. Boston college. I hear that game Virginia thing. Yeah. The Virginia thing knocked me on my on my Easter. I'll be honest it really deflated me. And it's no coincidence that we stopped talking Miami football pretty much after that who gets a better bowl game f I you or Miami. Well, clearly, what's the thing with that. Were they'll be bull eligible eligible. No, I understand they're still in the kind of conference that they have to be like Super Bowl eligible, right? Or did that things change when they made it to conference USA USA last year at a couple bowl teams still get in. I mean, unless they lose like the remaining games, they lose four shaking right in a local bowl because they don't travel right, but because of their conference if you're in the ACC in your bowl eligible, you're you're definitely going to a bowl, but they're still in that you have to get a bid. And accepted Serling Don. Thing is Butch cats thing of trying to make it a thing, which which cats one word capital, C Butch cats. That is not a real it is now bring it wouldn't tracking the domestic dust bunny. You come to find them hiding under wardrobes next to Las soaks due to scarring off what's ugly fascinating about the dust bunny is that although they are not actually essential creatures when they would not only saves people money, but also has a ninety seven percents customer satisfaction rating this obvious to them you should switch because Yesler. Switching to Geico is a no brainer. Ono is the dust on his own natural predator on the lung dust on his run along. Donlevatar? I was wearing these pants. They're like, I don't know if they're navy or if they're gray. And we like me and my wife were debating about it. You can't tell whether they're grey or navy. So I decided to call them gravy. Well. Good gravy. Stugatz. Also, you guys see Austin. Also, really, so so there's an also after that a you just tossing random thoughts and us that we can't do anything. Well, before he said to me life should have Disney buses, and then I quickly realized that life does have they're just called city buses with our show with the stugotz on the ticket. That's great Cody certain on the second or with a cough. How're you doing you? Okay. I'm good, by the way. I just heard that rejoin I wanted to bring my gravy pants today. But there in the wash because I warm over the weekend bringing them Wednesday. What color are they when they're wet just out of curiosity? I don't know probably more navy. I'm telling you that I looked at them yesterday and the dirty clothes toll gravy gravy pants there because you can't tell if they're very or navy. I'm telling you, and you think that's a weird that that that could never get mixed up. I'm telling you bring him in gravy. I wanna bring back that interview segment that you guys debuted last week, you never know with Greg Cody where he interviews weird occupations. So I'm gonna go ahead and clear the lines to do that real quick. I want to get into some Cain stuff. And I want to take this call from Jim. So let's go to Jim. I we'll go to canes give you guys time to load up the lines. Jim who do you look like? You know, I kind of look like a Brown hair. Orlando bloom. Oh, well, Orlando bloom is often Brown haired. So you look like Orlando bloom. Yeah. I always go with the Orlando bloom in Lord of the rings, though. So maybe that's my problem is that you walk around with a capon or something why and Lord of the rings. I don't know. Maybe it's just because I'm kind of a nerd, and I love that movie. All right. Go ahead. Okay. Thank you. Do. I think that we can all agree that Dan loves spotlight and he wants to shout from the mountaintops, right? We're always also looking for ways to expand the reach of this show and look for new vehicle to promote the people on it. I think we can also agree that Greg your master of all matters of the heart your father figure to Dan in a radio and TV giant when I mix all those things together. I come to one logical conclusion a reality show hosted by Greg Cody at guide, Dan and his Seon say through the wedding cleaning and climax at the nuptial, which is obviously officiated by Greg Cody. All right. So they're going, and they're they're at bed bath and beyond. They're looking at plates, and Greg cody's there with the camera crew is making sure that they're making the right decision of bringing everybody into that. Hey. Between they're deciding between beef and chicken, right? And they get into an argument. Great your dare to guide them in the in the immature in the in the in the early early relationship trying to get them to the point that they can come in grow into the great man that you are today. Maybe got a name for it. We can call it. I do in it. Greg, Cody, I doing it. I love it the keys in the name. You know, I love the idea, obviously because it centers around me. No. I think it's a fantastic idea. He mentioned them a father figure, Dan, I like to think of it as an older brother finger, but we don't want to nitpick on that. But no, I think it's a great idea they need guidance. You know, neither has been married before that I know of. And I mean, you are on that beam. You would know if Dan was previously married. That's also the elephant in the room with all this whole concept is they're not exactly pleased with Greg Cody at the moment. Well, I broke the news, and I'm happy. I did it broke a like a a bottle of celebratory champagne on the Bova ship. You know? So it's fantastic news that I broke about their upcoming naturals. You know, the the show that he proposed featuring me guiding Dan and Valerie through their nuptials. I think he mentioned that it's going to end with me actually, giving the valves and -ficiating. Yeah. I don't think it should end their honeymoon. I'm willing to be on the honeymoon to you know, help in the marital boudoir as needed. And so we're going to be an all service, friend and mentor baby baby. I really think there might be something to you officiating this wedding, Greg Liam, you really need to try to make that I think we should start a campaign today with Dan because I think he loves you enough that he'll let you do it. I think a lot of people in our audience would let you do their wedding. Well, I would I would do it. And here's a here's something that's in my craw. Christopher and I have mentioned this Christopher your of an age where a lot of your friends are getting married at cetera. So you can speak to this nowadays. You know, all you all you need is some mail order. Ticket. And all of a sudden, you're a clergyman qualified to officiate a wedding. I don't believe in that. I think it should be like a pastor Reverend a rabbi priest it should be someone legit. Not just a friend of yours who's a mail. Order thing lady that did my wedding. I was her first wedding. That's right. You don't like that? I would ban her nothing. Nothing personal, you know. Nothing nothing against her. She did fine. But you know, if I'm officiating a wedding, I'm going to wear a dress like a clergyman, and I'm going to do a fine job. We were talking during the break and be sure to call seven eight six four five six three seven if you have an occupation that Greg Cody would be fascinated by to return of Greg cody's. You never know never know we were talking about during the break if the Miami hurricanes were actually better because I sort of threw that out definitively, and you correctly pointed out, well, how like why they're worse when laws how do we know that they're better? I think they're better. They've got. A really good defensive unit. That's elite. I know they didn't play so great against Boston College. But all bad game. That was her first bad game of the year. These these athletes it started to show out a little bit. Last year have had another year of development. They've had a solid recruiting class. Even though they've been really hurt by the Amun Richards injury. They still have a great young receiving core. And maybe the offense is a little credit because arm Richards. I was somebody. They would they were counting on having that somebody that was projected to be first round draft pick all these receiver any had that terrible injury. That ended his career. Yeah. Now that's fair with with Oman Richards. You know, I'm looking at at at the UM scores this year and exclude savannah state and Toledo to a degree. Not toledo. You can even Toledo though, you know, forty they they beat North Carolina forty seven. So leeann Toledo's a team that puts up sixty regularly. I know I feel like they're better than North Carolina. I know I know that they're in the MAC, but and that seems like a cartoonish conference, but they have a solid often. You know, Miami has to reach a point though, where every game is not close the last two weeks. Obviously before that they beat Florida state by one they'd played three games in a row. The that were either losses or just, you know, just real nail biter so to speak, and and you know, big teams have easy Saturdays in Miami doesn't seem to against the no against power five the quarterback play has regressed since last year. And there was plenty of room for improvement. We thought Rozier on and I'm certainly guilty of pushing that narrative improved during the offseason because he was pretty spectacular for himself anyways in spring ball and fall camp, and they absolutely grass and on top of that they had an incredibly predictable offense. And I think what you've seen here recently. With the Miami hurricanes. I don't think it's a coincidence that their offense has mightily struggled against Virginia in Boston College because Virginia Boston College were both coming off extended weeks of preparation they were coming off their buys. They had an extra week to prepare for an offense that quite honestly is very predictable insanely predictable. And it drives me crazy. That Mark Rick sorta defends his play calling by saying these are played this. These are plays that have worked for thirty years. That's not exactly that you're not you're at the cutting edge of innovation in offense thirty years ago. Some of this stuff is so predictable. We know one Chuck raids going to get the hand off on a fullback dive. We know the tight end screens when it's working especially last year. You gotta go with seven straight times that everyone knows what they're getting with a Mark richt offense. And there's a lot of rightful claims for MS call step down from that position. In by the way. Miami was coming off a bye against Boston College. Well, teams were you know, I don't have never thought that that the offensive line under Rick has been anything special and Rick's guy who I think would prefer to pound the ball and run the ball if he had the proper offensive line working in sync. I I don't think throwing thirty passes as ever anything that he wants to do instinctively, but he just doesn't have the the offense of lend that's going to really pave the road. You know, you mentioned the offense blind. And I was actually surprised entering that Boston College game. According pro football, focus has gone into the college game as unit. They were ranking the Miami hurricanes the third best in the conference, which I assumed they were way worse. I think what's really happening on that. Offense of line is have you seen these rotations? If you go to a game they're rotating their offensive lineman in and out sometimes when they're going into a short yardage situation on key downs. They're bringing in new offense of Lyman. So there's very little continuity on that offensive line. I'm sure they're trying to find combinations at work. But at this point in the season, you'd hope that they had identified some. Sort of consistent line, and I get that their explanations for why the quarterback has struggled and why the offense of line is struggled. But ultimately in college football. It's the players at who's in charge of recruiting the players. It's a head coach the head coach in the NFL can blame the general manager can blame the front office for not having the right players and everybody can understand that. But in this case, if you don't have a solid offensive line or quarterback that you can trust three years into your time down here. That's that's an indictment on you. Mark richt. It's an indictment on you. Now a few weeks ago. There was tweets by you about Kohl's under fi. Like is there? Like, can I bring like is there any kind of hotseat going on here? I'm just asking. Oh, they absolutely need to run the table. We'll loss against an ace. Well, no, I think he his job is an offense Apponator is absolutely on the hot seat. How can it not his decision that this is someone above them? And they be like reports athletic director. He's a he's pushed back on that dating back to his as in Georgia. He's very defensive. When it comes to his play calling. I understand it in his defense. He says he's place. I've been working for thirty years that doesn't really sound like somebody that wants relinquish control. But something needs to be done. They are so vanilla on offense. It's infuriating, we come back with the return of Greg cody's, you'll never know in which he interviews random occupations. That's up next donlevatar. Hey, gravy vampire? I'll stop let so. Gravy vampires? Good, right. Stugatz. I don't even know what it means. Exactly. Like, what am I doing might just showing up while you're eating gravy? And I wait for you to consume it. And then I attacked your next could get the gravy as it goes down. They suck the gravy at a fable. Okay. But I wait. I just hang out at like golden corral waiting for people to put extra gravy like out of this extraordinarily niche, vampire work. This is our show with stugatz on the ticket. It's the shipping container. It's Greg Cody Tuesday before we get to you never know. Didn't do it today. Sorry to interrupt. You didn't do today like a trick or treating with you on a Tuesday or anything? Well, you know, it's not Wednesday. Spoiler. Sorry. But before we get to you never know where we were. Greg interviews people with interesting jobs, Greg you wrote a get rid of tannehill column, I wouldn't refer to it as get rid of ten. He'll calm. But I was I invite people go to Miami Herald dot com and read my latest column, or or you can follow me on Twitter, and I have a link to it what I wrote was that they have to move on from tannehill. And the time to do it is after this season because his salary cap hit triples next season to twenty six million unless they can really renegotiate that down. It just doesn't make any sense to continue in the ten a hill era. The problem is which I explained in my column is that this is a bad in your column and just give us your thoughts. Thank you disembodied voice. Come from almost sounded like lebatardshow, but but made more sense. Three reasons. Number one. It's a bad draft in two thousand and nine thousand nine quarterbacks. Number two, ten hill has very little trade value. The just are not a lot of teams that would consider him an upgrade the giants and Jaguars come to mind and those are both arguable. You know? And so the timing is not great to move on from tannehill. Although they need to. So that's a dilemma for what happened in the last four or five weeks because after week three he was like an above average quarterback. And now he's he hurt his shoulder against the raiders Homer. Father picked the dolphins and several games lost. And now has written that they need to get rid of tan well of of sort of in writing that increasingly for about seven years the thing about tannehill after three in those start is that it's always in the context of the entirety rear. He was playing. Well, splitting. Okay. He had eight touchdowns and five interceptions. Dan. Would you be open? Greg your wedding. I'm not sure I want him at the wedding all brothers first art show. He got so drunk that he knocked one of the paintings off the wall. That's true. Did you have to buy it? Did he damage it him by? That's fleming. Bought to your brother's paintings, by the way, Paul you're on. Hey, doing Greg always wanted to talk to you. And I'm I'm happy to be part of the local hour. This is actually my second radio appearance in in a in in the space of an hour. So I'm really pleased to be a part of the show talked to you. What was your first radio appearance, Paul? Oh, good question. Billy. I I was on a local radio station in Kingston New York to promote the museum and working at Maritime Museum. Wow. Are you a curator? I am not actually the education coordinator. So I do a a lot of scheduling for group tours as well as promoting educational opportunities museum. I feel like it'd be more interesting. If you with a curator, how's that great? Why'd you think education that is good as curation? It's it's more valuable. But perhaps not as interesting, you know, American Museum, if you're the curator, you know, your deep sea diving in is that what you said American Museum. I did. Yes. Yeah. And you know, so you're deep sea diving. You're you're looking at a mollusc encrusted Bill in carrying a few museums that interest me, but I would certainly agree with you. We do we do have a lot of that stuff. Available for people look at jail looking at it. It only has to half the battle in hype. And you still have to learn about it. And that's that's kind of my job is to teach. You what you're looking at explain why it's important. What what's the most interesting thing? You can teach us really quickly. That's a great question. The thing. I can teach. You is Henry Hudson would the ruined in North America. And probably died of starvation. Is that the Hudson river guy that is the Hudson river guy. You're never know that how he punctuated. Call paul. No, no. I like that that work. All right. Thanks. Speaking bad at this like just your unspeakably bad get off my air. Trip. You're on the local hour. Hey, good morning guys. I've got to travel pet peeve. I wanted to run by to see I'm either right or wrong in the some sit situations. Here's what I got cross country flight from Las Vegas back to North Carolina where I live. So we're talking to five hour flight, I use some of my travel miles upgrade to a nice cushy first class seen wrote to a and the people in that were there's a couple that were in two different seats and they wanted to sit together. So then what they do. They recruit the airline stewardess sit there and like pressure me into moving my seat into basically like one b which is a window seat. And I'm a tall guy. Six foot three. And I wanna get get up stretch my legs. That's why picked off feet, and I hate it. When people recruit the airline personnel to sit there with their arms crossed and like pressure you in a movie in my in the writer arming the wrong here what's going on. So we're both members of the couple window seats. One one one of the people was in. Yeah, they were both in like window seat. So I couldn't get an aisle seat. So I basically downgrading because the seats were basically at the bulk, and I hate being in like crow like one because then I can't put anything under my feet, like, my, you know, my backpack and much stuff. You gotta put it overhead super inconvenient. 'cause every time you want to get something you've got to stand up, and you know, keeps up out of the overhead. It's annoying. Well, the rule of thumb is this, and I'm an I'll man with a capital A and a capital limb I will change rose to accommodate someone else if I have an aisle if someone is asking to move from an aisle to a window or heaven forbid a middle seat. Forget about it. I actually have a story with Greg Cody in this when we when I was younger and a lady and her small child, she was separated from her small child and she asked my dad it was to give a middle seat. Right. You had an aisle seat. She asked you to sit. In the middle seat. So she could sit with her child, and you said, no, correct. How would that even work? Why would you move to a middle seat because then you wouldn't be they wouldn't be sitting next to each other? Well, it was a baby if I remember correctly, it was an infant. I think I was kinda I was polite to the woman. They'd split up. If you sit in the middle you split up the window in the end the aisle. Yeah. I don't I might have the details of the actual seat messed up, but hell is going. But I think the point is this the point is that you rejected a lady's requests, she had a child she was separated from that is definitely happened. He asked you to switch and said, no, I said, no politely. But I think what needs to be mentioned is that the woman was an out of uniform flight attendant. She was flying for free on the airlines dime and trying to impinge upon my space a woman changing low this summer, that's right as a paying customer, and so that ain't gonna fly she had a child. Well, you know, millions do. Child. I was just going to do that. Kevin welcome to the show, Greg. This guy's an interesting job. If you wanna ask him about his job in. It's what do you want to just about? Oh, sorry going. Yeah. Greg garbage garbagemen. Nice. That's and tests. Out here. Live in a dream as a kid. I always used to look at Trump's just like you watching the garbage gets compact. Right. And I'm out here. Living my dream the garbage, man. No. Are you the guy? Are you the waste management with the big great green truck? Oh, well, I'm not actually in Florida. I'm based out of New York. Okay. So it's a city job. Okay. In what happened years ago? I always phone. The the phrase garbage man was perfectly neutral, no insult at all meant or taken. And then all of a sudden, they became sanitation engineers, how do you identify patient worker Santa patient worker, and it doesn't really matter? Yeah. Because there's no insult and calling. You a government? What you do? Is. You recycle garbage. You put it in the back of the truck you pull a lever. Right. And it compacts it. How does that work? Yeah. Compact it. Yeah. We throw it in the back of the hopper, and we hit the levers wants a hoppers get full and everything gets compacted Inc. Hopper. And does New York City have the garbage bags or are. They the big bins. Well, it depends. If it's a big Bill in it has bags and we do residential help house. It's garbage bins. Do you ever? Are you ever concerned that what you're dumping into the back of the garbage truck may without your knowing it be a dismembered body? Now about that. But I picked up many of that animals raccoons and live rats jumping out on you. It's it's very hazardous Joe and do people ever applaud you in any way or offer you bottles of water as you're making your daily runs the night people off of water, but most people will get annoyed because the garbage Trump's block the street and people can't get that. So like public where public enemy number one. What's the most interesting thing you've found in someone's trash that you could say on radio? One time. We we took the TV back home like a someone threw out of old TV one of the big back TV's, and we get back to our garage, and clubbed it in and it soon as we plugged it in a million roaches. Just started crawling out of the though this does it work like that anything that's in the trash is now your property. You can take whatever you want. It's the city property as soon as it's on the street. It's considered the city's property, but I usually don't I'll try to take anything home. I don't I don't follow it. A the the rule. One man's trash is another man's graduate. No, come holiday time is it considered customary for people to leave a tip perhaps, you know, took a twenty dollar Bill in their tracks. Yeah. Not not many work because we can't take any tips. Really? But you could if I slipped you twenty million right roaches, wink, wink, Lewisham some a little weight. But now no city workers can take while. That's something. That's not fair is it. I guess not. But. Okay. Well, who's gonna tell on you like the driver? What do you ride on the back? Let you hang off the back of the truck. When I thought it you can hang at the back of the truck, but safety issues, they forbid it. Now, they took away to the steps in the back of the Trump. No, this is my dream. Shit on a truck. Gal of archery ride the back of the says. Yeah, is it a two men truck is at the driver. And then the guy in the back just said, they don't do the back anymore. What do you mean? The two men. It's the two men truck driver gets out and throw the trash co. It's not just one driver. I one guy load on a truck where where are you position on the truck? As well. We both. We both sit in Trump. Yeah. There's a driver's seat in the passenger seat. And then we pull up to a stop and in both people get out and throw trash house. How far away your stops? It seems like a huge waste of energy for you like just getting in and out of the truck over and over again, it's not that bad. If you do if you do a residential place house the house, you just stay out of a truck, and you just walk. Among among the sanitation workers. Do you guys ever gripe about the idea that, you know, the EMS workers the so-called first responders sorta get all the credit, whereas you guys are doing every bit as much a public service? Yeah, we are definitely a public service, but we're not considered first responders. But when it snows the New York City where in charge of snow removal, so police department by department EMS, they can't get around. We we quit a snow snow. I feel like you guys are next in line though. Like, if the EMS workers all of a sudden went on strike, I feel like if I called in saying, I have a heart attack that. Yeah. A garbage truck could very easily come pick me up and transport me to the local hospital hard out.
