"Well, what a pecker handed woodpecker. What about that? That ain't nothing. Okay, I'm sorry. I regret to inform you you've been fined 25 cents for that outburst. Now just put it on my tab. Yeah, I check it out. I'm going to get out of, man. I'm so lonely to be circumcised again. You know? I can tell you what. I got a good recommendation for you. Wow. Yeah, I'm gonna tell you something. No, I agree with Jim, about legendary is that he gets on my nose, man. I mean, he used to be that wolf cow, and then he stole my rig fire. Well, first of all, Larry. Nobody stole your Ric Flair. That belongs to Ric Flair. Yeah, but I used it on this show. Then that means you stole it from Ric Flair. And let me say, let me tell you something. We know Rick flair here. He's probably watching right now, and he's coming after you. Shoot. More love me, man. He used to say Jack. All the time 'cause he heard me say it on your show. That Ric Flair sold something from you. Has Ric Flair ever stolen anything from anyone? Is it original? No, Jack, all the time. Is there a new takeout to the bank, right? Larry, where did Ric Flair steal this? So you're saying Rick heard it here and stole it from you? Yeah. He already was on this show. Many, many times. He knows me. Hey, Jack. Wow. He knows it. And I tell you what, Larry, if he knows you, I wouldn't mind him doing a pile driver on you right now. Jack. You had a guest on how smart or now you're going to be glad I'm out here. But yet you want to sell these little things at me. And I don't want to hurt my feelings, man. I can do it for you. That's not a slur. Yeah, whatever you slurp. A slur is what you do every day after 25 beers and try to communicate. And we're up against a break here. Thanks, Larry. You take care of yourself. 30 minutes remained right here on a Wednesday afternoon. You were listening to the Paul fine bomb Joe podcast. And we were back. We have 30 minutes remaining on our program. It's great to have all of you here. Mike is in Kentucky. You're on the air. Hello, Mike. Mike. Oh, Mike, lunch. Hey, this is me. Well, good. My son just my son just called me with a call. I told him I was on hold for you. Yes, Paul. I'm willing to step up and pay Larry's fine. I know he's got the money, but I don't think he's going to pay he had a principal. I don't either. Yeah, I'll tell you. You know, I didn't like you know from the start. And then I kind of like, well, whatever, I'll go along with it. You know, you ain't no stopping that it seems. And now I'm just plumbing disgusted with it, Paul. They have managed to make the national championship unattainable for 95% of the schools out there. Mike, it already was. It already was. Well, yeah, I know. College football? Yeah. It was the big 5. You know, they started a new conference and called the big 5, Oklahoma, Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, that's about it. To me, from now on is just any time you win a title, it's going to be tarnished because people are going to say you both. Seriously. I understand your frustration, but do you think when the national championship game comes around next year or the Alabama Texas game or Georgia Florida or any other major game? This is going to matter. We're still going to watch the game. I'm going to, but it's just, it makes it a little less compelling for me. It's just aggravating Paul. It's like now I'm not for it. Well, tell me this. What is wrong with what is wrong? I'll just play devil's advocate for the sake of argument. What is wrong? What is wrong with the athletes making money? Answer that question for us. Well, there's nothing wrong with it, Paul, but the way they've gone about it has made it like the New York Stock Exchange. They've got about, but your budget people, the people that run college. Whoever's responsible for it. Let me tell you responsible for it. It's the very people that run the sports. They've known this was coming down the track for ten years. They didn't do anything about it. I get all that Paul. I just don't like it, dude. I'm a fan. I understand how you don't want to be about our boys. That don't blame the 17 year old who's making money for the first time in his life. Blame the and it's not like this has been a pure endeavor anyway. And you can argue all these different things, but once coaches started 20 years ago, Steve spurrier and Bobby bowden were the highest paid coaches in the country, making a $1 million a year. Now they're all making $10 million a year. So at some point, that was going to catch up. And it would be great to turn the clock back, but you can't. But what are we going to turn the clock back too? It's not like some of the stuff wasn't going on anyway. Let's continue with more phone calls here. Jim is in Mississippi. Hello, Jim. Hello, Paul. I think this ties into what you've been talking about today. I've got a selected I collected autographs when I was a kid and I've got one here out of the 19 52 Carnot magazine and it's a story about staying the man Musial. And this tells about him given a contract by the owner, fed side. Right. That was not did not fill in the amount of money that he was going to make. And he filled in the amount that he filled in the same amount that he made the year before, which was $80,000, and he was the highest paid baseball player in the major leagues. He's not only was a high paid baseball player, but he was a class, man, a class act. Sure was. Isn't that never going to be another stand to man? I don't think, in my opinion. No, I agree with you. When I was a kid, I had to stand the man bat. Oh yeah, and I had to stand a man baseball glad to help me get my flip. And my car. Well, glad my car got stolen. No, thank you for sharing that. That's a great story. I really do appreciate it. Mitch is up next in South Carolina. How am I Mitch? Now uncle Paul, I have been more than once. Criticized for my phone calls and then told that I am famously one of the worst callers. And who told you that? Who told you that? But I've heard the comments. Okay. But I don't care. My question is, okay, I want to understand, I mean, is one of your legendary colors. Correct. Has he always every call talked about Jim? Seems that way. And as he also, that's something more recent, Mitch, like only the last 5 or ten years he's been doing that. I mean, there was a time claimed his own team, but that is long past. Right. In the use of if you don't take his side in the situation, right. And I'm wondering, and then Jim, he won't show acknowledgment, if these are the superstars of the old days. Maybe they weren't so good old. Maybe they weren't. The good old days. That's a good old anymore. You know, I'm hoping that somebody will look back at this year and say, man, those were the good old days. Well, I mean, I'm enjoying that and to be honest, I'm enjoying Jim's calls lately. I can understand what he says. I mean, the one thing about Jim, he doesn't, I mean, he reacts. He doesn't waste our time going through something that happened a week ago or yesterday. Right. But it just seems like Jim Kate do anything and I may not comment on it. No, you are, that is what we call a sapient analysis there amidst..

"We've talked to coaches at that level. It's a real frustration. That they can offer show you the facilities and tell you about all their great coaches and all this great stuff in the kid ends up going somewhere else because they just have more on my own money. Any questions, Stewart seems like it's hard to answer because this is happening in real time and it's happening very quickly. As you alluded to, so after hearing some of the biggest names talk publicly recently, Sweeney Sabin, those with whom you have spoken, is there any way to predict what a year from now or even beyond that looks like right now in the sport? No, I don't think so. I mean, some of these collectives just got incorporated. Just you just filled out the paperwork within the last couple of months. There will be more to come. So it's really, like you said, it's happening in real time. And there's a sense, I think I saw Nick Saban used the word on sustainable. He's not the only one that has said that. It feels like this can't possibly continue at this pace. Something's going to go wrong. But to me, there is a difference between just the idea of players getting money. Is that sustainable? Yes, I think that as long as there are football fans who want their teams to win and have money to burn, that that's going to continue to be a thing. The collective model is what I have more skepticism about. You've got these organizations, these entities that, like I said, didn't exist a few months ago. And they're signing a contract that says we're going to pay you 7 figures over the next four years. Who knows if they'll still be in business a year from now? Much less four years from now. I think we're going to see, I would expect we're going to see lawsuits when players collected isn't delivering what a player said he was going to get or vice versa. We haven't even gotten into our personally of what happens when some of these kids try to transfer. And the collective tries not to pay them the money. It's going to be really messy. And so it's a really bizarre concept, frankly. The schools have spent a decade or more fighting this in courts. The idea that they don't want to pay athletes directly. They don't want schools paying athletes directly. But because of that, you've put a lot of power in the hands of these third party collectives that some of them are run by people, like I said, the Oregon one is run by Nike executives, right? They know a little bit about marketing and business. Some of them are just some guy in the community raise his hands that I want to do it. So I think that's going to be really fascinating to watch over the next couple of years. What happens with these collectives? Another moment or two was Stewart mandel of the athletic on the SIL. Stuart, Jay bills made a really interesting point here about two hours ago. He said, the money going into the collective, there's only so much money to go around. So if you're a well meaning fan of any of these schools and you normally had whatever you could donate to the school above and beyond your tickets may now be going into the collective. So the question is pretty obvious. What happens to that money that used to go over here that's now going to support players coming to your campus? Yep, that's a great question. We're going to see we don't know yet. There are people who fear that athletic directors who fear that some of their big money donors, that they rely on to help upgrade facilities. And so on and so forth are going to say I'd rather just give my money to the football players, right? I happen to be the opinion that those kind of people have plenty of money to burn and they can still just want to do both. But I could be totally wrong. We'll fans who forget big money boosters. Let's just talk about fans who have to spend, in many cases, you have to make a donation to the schools to be able to buy your season tickets. Would you rather spend that money. Collecting your contributing to a collective where if you collect a certain amount, you get invited to some sort of VIP event where you can meet your favorite players. I think that's a great thing to watch. The only thing I'm certain of fall is that the money, if the money has to come out of somebody else's pockets, it will not be the coaches, right? There is no scenario where gosh where you don't have enough money to give curby smart and other raise. It's going to have to come out of somewhere else. But I wonder, the head football coach will always be protected, but you know, and we all know that it sometimes trickles down whether it's a basketball coach, the baseball coach, or someone else who, hey, we can't let this guy go, we need the money now. At some point, people are just going to say, well, I've already given. Yeah, that could absolutely be the case. I worry for some of the non revenue sports that obviously ticket sales and TV money aren't necessarily putting the bill for those sports. And if donors were to hold back money that they normally give to the school, they might be the ones to suffer. But let's not forget that. I don't have the exact numbers, but as you know, each time one of these conferences signs a new TV deal, the money that the schools receive from it goes up exponentially. I mean, we're starting to talk 50, 60, $70 million a year that these schools are getting, especially in the SEC and the Big Ten. So there's just like a constantly replenishing source of revenue there. It's just a matter of how the school is used to spend it. Incredible that a couple of years ago, if we would have thought on this date in the middle of April, this would be the conversation with maybe we could have predicted it. We probably could have steward. It's just the people that run college athletics who kept trying to stop it did not want to look ahead. Great to have you on. Fantastic conversation. All right. Thanks so much, Paul. Stewart mandel, nobody better on the subject and it is the subject right now. I know people are tired of hearing it and eventually we'll talk about the season, but this is what's happening right now. Every single day, every hour in college football, we'll take a break,.

"Hey, welcome back. Final hour has arrived been a busy show. We had Jay bilas on earlier talking about Sheila and NIL and Kansas Lee from Vanderbilt John Adams, many other guests, including Ross dellinger. We end with not totally in, but our final guess is Stuart mandel. Of the athletic who has been really at the Vanguard of the NIL conversation, his latest headlined a three star defensive tackle worth 500,000 of four star wide receiver a million the sticker shock of college football recruiting beyond 22 Stuart. Thank you. As always, for joining us. This is becoming the topic in college football. The NIL issue and take her through your most recent story and reporting. Yeah, you're right, Paul. I think it's the most the rise of these NIL collectives and the flood of money into recruiting to me is the most important development college football in a long time. It's completely transformed the way recruiting is working. What I was able to do was be able to look at a few of these contracts that are taking place in the that's what this is. This is taking what you always heard whispers about about boosters providing money and actually putting it in writing in a contract and all out in the open to get a sense of how much money are guys getting. What is kind of the market rate right now? We know about the player that got that crazy $8 million deal. That was an outlier. I don't think many are getting that. And you said the numbers yourself just now, I saw four star receiver who the collective for that school is going to pay him north of a $1 million over four years. I saw a top ten defensive lineman in the country. Who's getting a million over three years and then that three start defensive lineman, 500,000 over four years. And you need the way I'm phrasing it right now, right? It sounds like professional athletes contract. And that's what's just blowing people's minds right now. How quickly we went from NIL even becoming legal on July 1st of last year to these kind of contracts I'm talking about. And Stuart, let's get not to turn this into a contract law class, but what's in these contracts? And I won't even ask you, are they legal? Because that's not even a question that you can ask anymore without getting laughed off the stage. It really doesn't matter. But how are they structured? What's amazing to me, Paul is how few stipulations are in these contracts. They're pretty bare bones. There is always a cause of explicitly says all parties agree this is not a recruiting inducement to attend a specific school. There is no mention of any specific school in there. People have asked me what if the player transfers, as far as I can tell, there's nothing in writing that would allow the collective to pull the offer, pull the contract if the player transferred because again, this is not supposed to be an inducement to stay at that school. So all it really lays out is the money, the spelling out that the money is in exchange for the rights to your to the use of your NIL for appearances and so on and so forth. There's an integrity clause that if the player, for instance, were to get arrested or cause some sort of embarrassment that that would be cost or termination and that's about it. The assurance that the player is going to sign with the school that the collective wants to sign away must be taking place verbally because it's not in that contract. Sure, as you know, and everyone watching and listening those are contract is between an entity or a person or a group of people and an individual or more, so we know about the player who exactly is the entity here. It's these collectives that you're seeing sprout up all around the country that basically pool money donated money on probably mostly from boosters, but certainly a lot of them any fans can go on the website and click the donate bunny. Donate button, they pull that money and then they decide. And I'm focused on recruits, although they certainly deal with current players as well. Who gets how much I think that word collective has come to represent a lot of organizations that aren't necessarily all that similar. To examples, fire sports, the one that's associated with Tennessee has been very open and not even hiding from the fact that they are involved deeply in recruiting Tennessee football players. Ohio State one got announced there recently it's a nonprofit that is geared at pairing current Ohio State athletes with charities that they can do paid appearances for. If they're involved in recruiting, they're not advertising that. So you're going to hear that word a lot now and I will collective every school leader has one or they're going to get one, but they're not all necessarily doing exactly what the kind of deals that I wrote about in this article. Stuart overall, you know, we've heard about and you have written about some of the biggest deals, but how. Haven't have nots is almost a cliche here, but between the big the big schools, the ones that make up the power 5 and earth on top of the food chain and those who are trying to get there, versus just good programs, and then they also ran. I mean, how big a difference, what does the swath of space look like right now? Well, it's evolving and what's interesting to me to this point is that the collective, the schools of these clutches are associated with that have probably mobilized the most quickly and it raised the most money and are the most aggressive are schools like Tennessee, Texas a and M, Oregon. We're Phil knights involved. In other words, not Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State constantly. Because those are schools that do have big fan bases and rabid fans and frankly trying to catch up to Alabama, Georgia, those kind of programs. And so maybe you're more aggressive about trying to frankly buy a championship. You know, it doesn't mean that Alabama and Georgia won't start doing that soon. I have no idea. But they're programs that aren't really having trouble getting 5 star recruits in the first place. The ones I feel bad for are Colorado. Iowa state, Oregon state. Any of those kind of programs, you think of their power 5 programs, but they don't have a 100,000 people in the stadium. They don't have a Phil knight or somebody like that who's bankrolling the football team. And they're already, if they're not already, they will soon they're losing recruits to schools that can pay them..

"We'll update you on some of the basketball scores, but Tennessee just a obliterating longwood. As expected in the first round of the NCAA tournament, Stuart mandel, joining us from the athletic and just an absolutely fascinating story the other day. About millions and millions of dollars going to a high school about to be college players. Does that make sense? 5 star recruit. Signing a deal with a collective that could pay him more than $8 million Stuart great to have you on in fantastic story. People have been talking about this since the moment it hit the wires the other day. Thanks for being here. Give us the backstory for those who may not have had a chance to read it yet. Well, thanks, Paul. I caught wind late last week that, yes, it's a 5 star recruit in the 2023 class was about the sign a deal with a collective at a school that was going to in writing in the contract promise him more than $2 million a year. The chance to be more than $8 million over four years, just staggering amounts of money in a sport that until July 1st, you couldn't legally pay anybody a dime. So I got to read the contract in exchange for preserving the anonymity and it was just really fascinating because this is clearly an inducement to play at the school, which is absolutely not allowed. And yet the parties have crafted it in a way where the school has never mentioned, there is a clause in there that specifically says this is not an inducement to come play at a certain school. And as far as I can tell, there is no language in there. That assures that the player will sign with that school. So this entity, whose whole purpose is to support their favorite team, is promising more than $8 million to a high school junior with no written assurance if this player will actually sign with the school. Just unprecedented times that we're living in. Yeah, and the reaction has been predictable, but and I know you're under some limitations, but the speculation, of course, has been rampant. And assuming this goes, it all comes together here in the next year. I'm not sure you even had a phrase the next question in terms of changing things, but because it changes every day, does it not? Yes. Everything is so fluid, Paul. We're here in March Madness, and this is the 1st March Madness, right, where you're going to start to see some active players show up in the commercials. And I think that's what is cool about NIL and that's what everybody was hoping would come of NIL. And we all knew that boosters would find a way to use this in recruiting because they've been doing it under the table for the history of college football. But what caught me off guard and I think caught most people in the sport off guard was the very fast evolution of these collectives. These groups that are kind of like a political action committee, a fundraising committee where they pull all the donors together and they raise the money and then they can divvy that money up as they see fit to the players that they most want to take care of. And all under the legitimate, I'm using air quotes. You can't see it. Legitimate purpose of giving them are having them do NIL activities, having them do autograph signings. And appearances and social media endorsements and whatnot. And they're just there are certain schools. I mean, I'm seeing a new ones of these sprout up every week. And I think every school will have them at some point. Some of them just really got ahead of the curve and they figured it out real quickly. And they have a lot more money. And so I've heard people say, since my story came out, this is just the start that now there's going to be all these other players that get $8 million deals. I don't know that there's many that have that kind of money to give at this point. It just so happens that this one feels like they feel confident enough that they can promise that kind of money, but a lot of these, when you see such and such has launched an NIL collective, that NIL collective might not be much more than a web address at this point. In terms of how these work, Stewart, how are they put together and how are they kept aboveboard? David oven, my colleague had a really good look at the Tennessee one recently. That was probably the most detailed story I've seen so far about how one of them is working. They're kind of like they become like the de facto agents for the kids, basically. Our marketers, however you want to put it. In this deal that I read with the collective in that contract, they're promising all this money. But it comes at a cost. The kid has to sign over the exclusive rights to his NIL for the entirety of the term. So if Dr Pepper wants to do an ad with him, they can't come to the kit himself. Now they have to go to the collective. So suddenly the collective holds a lot of power over this kid. Not all of them are necessary structured that way, but that seems from what I'm understanding. I'm learning more about it every day. That's kind of the most popular model right now, is that it's almost like we consolidate we take all the players and pull all their NIL rights into one place and then we broker the deals for them. There are others that are more innocent, I guess you would say that they are nonprofits. The one David profile this is definitely a for profit LLC. There are other ones that are nonprofits that are trying to book charity appearances for the players, but they get paid for. It's all over the map. Some of them are doing group licensing deals so that the players can sell their jerseys, but the kind of collective that would be going after a high school junior and promising all kinds of money. I mean, that is very strictly we raise the money and then we own the rights to market your name image and likeness. Talking to Stewart mandel of the athletic Stuart, you mentioned a couple of things in your most recent column. One that I'm intrigued by because we've had this conversation a million times about the CFP committee and now this week the men's basketball committee is really taking it on the chin..

I just don't understand all the bits real. Philip, thanks for the call. Really do appreciate it. Thanks for your service, whenever it was. King is up next in Georgia. Hello king. Hi. How are you, Paul, how you doing? King, we're doing great. Thank you. King, are you there? Oh, can you hear me? He was not king for a day. He was only king for a couple of seconds. Let's talk the gene. In Tennessee, hello, Jean. Hey, hope you're having a good day. We are. Thank you. Miss Kay, you're a tops in my bed. The question I want to ask you how was the SEC going to fire against the big 12 this weekend in basketball? And that's a good question. That's a topic of our next conversation with Seth Greenberg. I think they'll do well. There are a couple of tough games, I think that, but I think overall, I think they're going to have the auburn game is critical. The Alabama game, that would be a big one to turn I'm not sure that's possible against Baylor, but Alabama is capable. Probably favor Kansas a little bit over Kentucky, but I think they'll get the overall win. We're lunch. I'm gonna be hunkered down watching some basketball tomorrow. I even think, I think Tennessee can beat Texas too. I hope so. I hope that he does well. I'll and I just want to make a comment. I'm not trying to be facetious during playing, but I May and I hope you're listening, I don't know if I heard you right. Jammed from Tesco is. I said, you were.

"Concerned are you that it's too late that they've already seated all of this to the NFL? I think it just depends on whether they're willing to think outside the box and be a little creative. Now, right now, I think one of the reasons this isn't even really coming up is that right now they can't even agree on whether to do an expanded playoff and if so when we know that ACC commissioner Jim Phillips in particular very outspoken recently that they don't think this is the right time to expand. But it is going to expand when this contract at the very latest when this contract ends after the 2025 season. And I would hope that they rethink that a little bit. I mean, some people are questioning why are you even holding these playoff games at ball games? Why aren't you holding them on the stadiums? The campus stadiums, like they do in the FCS, they do that all the way up until the championship game, which is in Frisco, Texas. I understand why they want to incorporate the bowls. I think it's not worth that though. It's that means delaying games until January. I mean, can you imagine Paul if the championship game this year, like I said, it would have been on January 24th. How many Alabama and Georgia players would have already been in the transfer portal by then? I mean, there's that factor as well, not just the NFL factor with those changes in the sport recently. Coaching changes, transfer portal, people are ready to move on. Well for January 24th and start getting ready for the next season. Stewart, I know nobody wants to see games in extremely hot conditions, but I've always wondered why college football doesn't move it up a little bit. That week zero it's a weekend to themselves. The NFL doesn't start to post Labor Day. Has anyone ever thought about trying to squeeze more out of late August to at least get a beat on the NFL? And then figure out some of this on the back end, or is that too creative? That was also in my column that was part of the plan in order to because I don't think you should make players play straight through the month of December with no break. So I think you should move it up and what is currently week zero becomes week one. The pushback I usually hear about that is that the ripple effect of that is then the players have to come back for training camp in July. Again, that's one of those things where they selectively use that as an argument. Nebraska, Illinois had to play that game in late August last year, a couple of years ago. You may remember for ESPN's a 150th anniversary celebration, Florida and Miami played on August 24th. So it can be done. And I agree with you, that's a chance. I mean, Labor Day weekend is great and that they get that one weekend before the NFL starts up. How about too? How about two weekends to yourself? Those early events like the Chick-fil-A kick-off in Atlanta, I don't think there's a rule that they have to be the first weekend of September. They can be the last weekend of August. So yeah, I would absolutely suggest that it's not unprecedented. You remember 20 years ago or so we still have the kick-off classic and the big screen classic, which were often pretty big games that would be played in what is now week zero. That is that should definitely be on the table. Yeah, the only counter I would have I think it's a great idea. We did our SEC show on the field in Orlando that afternoon. Now, again, the game didn't start till 7. We were on at four or 5. I think the field temperature was a 112°, but we could try to play the games maybe up north. I mean, somebody would do a kick-off game in Chicago or Indianapolis where you couldn't do it later on. Weather seems to be. I saw those fans at Lambeau last week in the freezing cold. But forever reason college, we hear a lot more complaints about whether on both ends of it. I mean, another, I mentioned earlier, I think those early round playoff games should be on campus, not at ball games. And when the commissioners unveiled this last summer and we asked them about that, they kept talking about how you don't want to play the stadiums they aren't winterized. You don't want to be playing these freezing cold games in December. It's like, well, we got to something's got to give here. We can't play when it's hot, and we can't play when it's cold. It's a 12, 13, 14 week season. It's not always going to be 67° at kick-off. Stewart finally, the age old question about when are these people going to get along? It seems like a bad time to ask based on what happened two and a half weeks ago, but what can you forecast if anything about the next few months and trying to resolve some of these ridiculous issues? There's a lot of animosity in that room right now. A lot of people are very frustrated. I haven't really quite seen anything like this before with that group. I don't think it helps that you have PAC 12 ACC Big Ten commissioners are all still fairly new. And so I think there's a little bit of a lack of trust between that group and the bob will be Greg Sainte Jack schwarber group that's been around a lot longer. So they're going to meet one more time the presidents have asked them to meet one more time. The president wants to be done with. They're like guys just get in a room and figure this out. But if you noticed right after they within days of them saying they should go meet again is when Jim Phillips held a conference call with a bunch of us in the media and went public with what he's been saying in that room. The ACC is fundamentally opposed to expansion right now. And nobody that I thought you think that's going to suddenly change in the next couple of months. So the elite again, I don't expect them to suddenly that something will dramatically change. And I think when that's clear, they'll start turning our attention to what's the next contract and it looks like. Because once you get to the next contract, it doesn't have to be unanimous. You're starting from scratch, frankly, you can build any playoff you want. And the majority will get behind a model, which I think will probably be close to if not the exact model that was proposed last summer in the ACC can either be part of it or tell Clinton that they're no longer eligible for the national championship, which obviously is not going to do. So that's why there's a lot of frustration. You know this is where it's headed. It's inevitable, why can't you guys hammer out the details and get it done to get it done sooner? So we can have this for 2024 instead of 2026. Great stuff. Stuart, thank you very much. It's always good to have Stewart mandel on among the most knowledgeable people in the industry. We are heading.

"I don't want to get into too much of that, but deep breath in. Going on in Jim's life right now anyway. So yeah, okay, I mean, she made a quarantine she said she feels are for them. And that's how you that's what I would say too is what I'd say to Jim is brother. They got medication for that. You don't have to keep suffering with whatever. All I ever hear of saying is nothing. They got nothing. Obviously, nothing. I'm compelling. He's nothing. Well, say something compelling Jim and we'll listen. I got one thing to say to that. Hey, I will call back now. I'm a call back next week and get back on a line for line with legend. I think I'm almost ready for that. Okay. Thanks, Brad. Good to hear from you. Red dog is up next. I mean, Alabama can not stop this illusion story. I mean, you had football game. You had the basketball game. Now you got miss K from Georgia with and Jim now. Jim, this is a respectable southern Christian woman. When she speaks, you need to listen. She's got words of wisdom. I mean, that's just disrespectful. You know, and I don't know. That being down was a little bit larger than 15 points. Yeah, it was. It was. And I know, I mean, you think about it. You got Jim tag team and the legend. And who else? They're just they're illusion. They're losers. But I want to propose something since east coast or whatever his name is. I want to be the full horseman and I want to be me squirrel. I'm in and augie. And we all root for different teams, but we can come for a greater calls that you can't talk to women like Jim did, and you can't talk to people like legend harness. You can root for your team like the guy who called in your Elmo. Elmo had it rod. This is about sports. People listen to this show to have fun. It's not to disrespect someone. And appear an older woman. She was speaking totally out of her heart so you gotta respect that. I have to take exception to something you said red dog. And I don't know what K's age is, but why do you naturally assume that Jim was speaking to an older woman there. Well, in this case sounds like someone would be like my mother, they'd be respectful? Not sound like she was in her late 70s, did she? No. No, I I'm not trying to disrespect her by right. I would never do that. I'm trying to make a distinction here, but I think it's worth my mouth. My point, but I think most people are. We are heading to a break. We have Stuart mandel joining us in a moment. We'll talk about the ways to save the CFP. You are listening to the poll find bombs Jo podcast. We're really looking forward to talking to Stuart mandel from the athletic and trying to figure out where we are. He's got a piece out. Maybe giving us some suggestions about change under the heading ten steps, see if the expansion must take, so the important games are not overshadowed by the NFL. Stuart great to have you on and I give you a lot of credit for trying to find a way for the CFP survival against the NFL, but every year it seems less likely based on the popularity and the positioning of the NFL good afternoon. How are you? I'm good, Paul, how are you? Not just the popularity of the NFL, but the change in the schedule, the NFL continues to take up more and more real estate throughout the month of January. And it's kind of gone under the radar, frankly, not really discussed much. But this plan for a 12 team playoff that they've been discussing now since last June, they would play the quarterfinals on New Year's Day, which sounds great. But then when I asked people, when would the semi final fee? Because the NFL has every weekend taken. They said, I would be in the middle of the week sometime. And I'm like, really? Your biggest events of the year and you're going to play them on Wednesday night. And then the championship game, which they always try playing on Monday night. This year, if I were this year, this great weekend of divisional playoffs this past weekend, all those great finishes, which just dominated the sports conversation. The game the college football game would have been the next night Alabama Georgia over the next night. And I don't know why more people in that room aren't concerned. I'm concerned that the college football championship would just become kind of a side event in the middle of the NFL playoffs. But Stuart, right now, it already is, is it not we were up there two weeks ago, and even though the schedule changed this year, when we were just having regular season, the final game of the season, it was still bigger news in many respects. There were two amazing play in game so to speak. It almost seems like I don't need to be in the fetus here, but there's almost nothing they can do. So what can they do in your estimation if anything? Yeah, you're right that Monday night championship game I thought maybe this year would be. Excuse me. My phone went out there for a second. I thought with the NFL pushing their season a week later that you wouldn't feel that quite as much because it's a regular season weekend. But it was definitely noticeable the day of the game. Everybody was talking about the coaches that had just been fired. And then the wildcard round. So and so to your point, I think a lot of the people in that room that commissioners have resigned themselves to there's nothing we can do, the NFL hogs the airways. What I would suggest and what I wrote about in there is shifting the whole thing earlier. For whatever reason, major college football college football is very resistant to playing their playoff in December, even though that's exactly what they do in the FCS and D two and D three. You always hear while they can't bother the athletes during finals week. But that's exactly what they did if you remember two seasons ago, the COVID season of 2020 when everything I pushed back, the SEC championship game was on December 19th. For whatever reason it was possible that year. But not possible going forward. So I would strongly encourage them to play as much of it as possible. You're not going to get all done in December. But I would play the first two rounds in December on Saturdays, which is when people expect cash flow to be played. And then not quarterfinals on New Year's Day semifinals. Because we've seen in the first 8 years of this, the years, and it's only once every three years, but the years that they do play the semis on January 1st. The TV numbers are so much higher than when this past season when it was on New Year's Eve or even some of the other dates they've messed around with. Stuart Mandela, some really interesting thoughts here about the CFP Stewart we're stuck right now, obviously. How concerned are you that it's too late that they've already seated all of this to the NFL? I think it just depends on whether they're willing to think outside the box.

"We were doing great. Thank you yes sir. Thank you for taking my call first of all. I didn't know if i was talking to feel or talking to not paul with all these With all these medical calls. But i want to get onto the florida gators. Yes one of your guests are so many said the other day. They ranked dan mullen at number twelve and they ranked kirby smart number five. When if you look at their wreckers so far at their at their perspective universities they're both baton about seven fifty and then if you look at dan mullen he took a seller dwell. I i hate to say that. 'cause i don't want upset any mississippi. Thank people but he left there with a hundred average and now on top of that everybody say boorda has nothing coming back but yet four five five bona fide running backs coming by. We've got pierced we've got days we've got right. We've got bowman. We've got lynn gone. And then they say well confidences there. Well wait a minute now. Already replaced cow piss when he was hurt last year with kamori gamble and we observer and then you say well what about receivers well hold on. They got jacob copland and they got whitmore come back and they got a couple of freshmen. So i think a whole man. We get into the quarterback situation. I record back image. Jones was the number one rated dual threat quarterback. When dan mullen got it. Dan mullen has been bringing him along and training him. And i just believe in my opinion that by the end of this year people will get tired of gary danielson. Say there's just too many weapons prove me wrong. But whether we'll get tired of. Gary danielson are we have gotten tired. What was that. What was the question again. I don't want to criticize cares. And i made a very very nice stay cows in In atlanta georgia one nine and he was a very nice man but anyway Well i shouldn't. I appreciate your enthusiasm for for florida. Maybe i need to rethink that But they are. You're right you're right about emory a. He comes with a lot of credentials. Thanks for the call appreciate it. Let's continue matt is in austin texas. Go right ahead paul. i. I've talked to you many times before about baylor so here hear me out and i know you have some thoughts on this. I thought i could not possibly have a lower opinion of art emerton. Ncw idea. And then i read this joke of baylor report now help me out the mission of the nc double as to protect the welfare of student athletes right some of these women. There were assaulted by the better athletes or impact themselves student athletes so the nc double a. To say well. There's really nothing we can do here because You know sexual discrimination in assault was widespread and rapid and there was nothing different about the football program. I'm sorry but i think congress needs to give the nc double a. the debt. You know an immediately revoked or text. Tim spent well. I don't think that's going to happen. But in terms of amer his credibility is at an all time low. And we'll find out soon whether it can go any lower but pat forty explained that really earlier. And it's as simple as the ncaa rules don't work when it comes to this type of an issue Tried at once with penn state blew up in his face. He had to walk back. And that's why this case was never going anywhere. I frankly said this summer time. And i would have been happy to see it happened. Program should have been shut down. But that didn't happen. Let's check out corky who is in fort worth Hello quirky good afternoon. Hey what's up. Paul hey there man. I finally after about thirteen years. We get to talk to you. And i did about two weeks ago. Came home and somehow my wife had turned off the tv. I was like what happened say. Espn cut it off. I said you gotta put paul finebaum back on thank cash and other going for three or four day. Hey john i think it was worth the sacrifice was hey in the. I just want to agree with you on something. I'm real sure about this clemson's not as good as everybody thinks they are. And you remember. You heard this from me. Georgia will take clemson to the share. And i'm not a georgia clemson. Georgia will kill clemson and georgia will be ranked number one after week number. Two a solid got to say thing. Yeah well i agree with you on that. And i i don't i think stewart mandel said it best. It's just the same teams every year. And whether taliban or clemson or somebody else they were there last year. Let's go ahead and put them right back. Cat daddy up next looking good sounding good and you have become a poster child and the corruption locker room really from coming to look so moaning showed a video they've been shown to players is snippets of comment. You talking about clinton angle beat georgia and clemson. Don't play biding. And they run it. Over and over and looping dadgum thing he showed him and you got to quit talking about that you mean them so yeah. I was on Somewhere yesterday on. Espn and i talked about clemson. Maybe being a little overrated it got blown up and all the the clemson nights are going to town with it. But that's okay. I don't those stands have never bothered me at all. I hear one little thing of the rotgut liquor two of our biggest sellers in the half paint plus as roman rocket to ten and a old crow to what is what type of. What type of whiskey is that.

"Afternoon. You're listening to the paul finebaum show podcast back in. Bobby is next in georgia. Bobby thank you talk to you. Thank you I tried to get on yesterday but When talk about jackie daniels This guy was third in the country back when fields and golden boy from Simpson where they're He's he's didn't have much time last year with the wide receivers before he came on. And i believe now. These had hundreds of hours of practice with these guys and the arm. That has georgia hatton really had an elite quarterback in a very long time and it's From was good but we really haven't had a lead quarterback Since stafford so. I believe that George is going to be something very special this year And i know other people of Said some of the things about him but I think it'll be fine with the time that he said so far. Yeah i agree with you on that. I think is a very very good Analysis thanks for the call appreciate it. Let's check in with mike who is in north carolina. Hello mike on paul very well. Thank you question for you need. Alabama will go undefeated this year. No i do not only either only just curious your opinion on that it'd be saying i'm curious about oklahoma and texas coming into this. They definitely are. And i know they will rely on the conference. Do you think you'll still be sec. East and west or do you think they'll break it into four divisions like north south east and west. I think they will blow up or we have now. I'm not sure we will have divisions. I think there will be a system to determine the schedules. But i think ultimately the sec champion she ship game will be determined by the two teams with the highest percentage. I'm got you. You see the big toil sale imploding or do you think they'll actually survive this and then continue as a conference. I think they're fooling themselves to think that they are going to look very good when it's all over I mean. I think they'll hang around right now out of spite but yeah i do. I don't really think they have inequality college teams that they could. They could bring into the conference to contribute to bring it back to where texas and oklahoma as far as stature you know was with the type of football programs even well college and winning programs period. They're just not out there to be. Hey no i think you're right. I think that's really the issue right now. Is you look around and do you grab. Somebody just grabbed them. And i don't think they are going to do that. And i and. I wanna make your converts better. It will make it bigger and say this not. I don't see perc- that may committing better for them. One other thing mike. I don't think this having a relationship with with two pac twelve is going to really help anyone So what if they have an oklahoma state washington game or or southern cal playing iowa state Tha chesley honestly. You can throw organs name out there but the pack toil hasn't really been relevant. It's peak carol coast at usc. I mean they really have true. Oregon's made it made it to the end of the season with a high ranked team. But they've never had a team that could finish and win it and you know the all were in these other. You know traditional football power team and the pac twelve really they just they just kinda exists to me anymore i mean. Usc used to be dominant force in college football. I know they had some down years here and there but they always came back. Like your notre dame's your alabama's. Everybody is down period. But i just don't see you as track and back to the cop at all. Thank you for the call. Not not with their current coach. Appreciate the call. Charlie is up next.

"I it is a bit amazing to me that the conferences like the pac twelve. That are saying. Let's pump the brakes on. This are the ones that could would benefit the most from the playoff expanding. Sooner so i know they feel misled By greg sankey in particular. And i know there are business. Reasons like you said would want to open it up to the marketplace to to take that strategy But i i actually think they would be in the pac twelve in particular. I mean the stigma. That conference has a suffering from by now being five years into a drought. Making the playoff is much more damaging than and whatever amount of money left on the table. If they don't take that thing to the market. I mean maybe or clap this year. And then that'll be the end of that conversation but you go another three four and even five years without it. That's just that's gonna be very very hard to dig out of the read. As of now all i do think that the big ten pac twelve and acc really want to slow down. I don't think anything's gonna get approved at that meeting in late september and at that point you're starting to push a little too closely your to to actually get up and running in two years so if i were betting right now i think it does go to the end of the contract unless there's an urgency. That's xpress to these conferences. That you know you have to get it done sooner. Espn concurrently played by the way they can. They can name their price and it may be so great that they feel like we. We should just go ahead and take this. But you know. There's been a lot of change in the commissioner ranks right. We learned from john. So offered and jim delany for so long. Even larry scott was there for twelve years to jim phillips at the acc devon warned. The big ten george cleopa.

"At the most recent olympic seven overall he joined us pat forty darren hytner on and now stewart mandel. Who is of course with the athletic and the latest. Welcome back college football. Yeah i mean i know. We had a season last year but it wasn't a normal season and we're hopeful that this time we will have that stewart. Great to have you here in here. We are Under about three weeks from tonight the college football season begins in earnest. Two weeks for for some people and we are. We are still hearing. Covert conversation like last year. Do you feel pretty comfortable that this season will will be moderately normal as we get closer to it. I do call it. I mean you're right. Covert is a huge problem in our country right now but last year at this time and it was We just we just hit the one year anniversary of one of the big ten factual canceled their seasons. It we just. We know as much. And i think all the leaders in college football and greg thank. You talked about this so many times or just trying their best to figure out if they could make it work and you know obviously they have a years experience but also Obviously two huge factors one vaccination rates and you know. I think a lot of the college football teams have done very good job getting Most if not all their players and coaches vaccinated and also we've just we've gone through this and every sport we just staged Six very successful And the and You know so many other sport than people just know how to handle this There will be positive cases there we players who probably miss games. Unfortunately but it's not gonna be you know. Last year was such a nightmare where you had dozens of games get by the end you dozens and dozens of games getting cancelled and weird things like ohio state getting put into the big ten title game by a vote I don't think it's gonna be like that this year. I think it's going to appeal like a real house football season. Well let's talk about Dad aspect of it before we get to what we all think will happen on the field The stadiums are going to be full. Whether there's controversy or not stewart. We all missed so much last year. What are you most looking forward to getting back to this year. College football to me. Paul was the most disrupted sport by cova when i would watch. Nfl games lot season on tv. Even if the stand empty it just didn't feel that different Than than normal to me to. Nfl kind of a made for tv product. That way the college football is you know. There's so much of what we enjoy about. It is has nothing to do with the action on field. The pageantry it's the band. It's the cheerleaders the fights on. And i felt like watching games last year. It did not do that. You're watching a movie with no soundtrack. So i'm most looking forward to all those shots of the full stand fan. And all the things i just said Some of the traditions. That had to go away Last year when we were basically Playing the trying to play these games in a bubble If you will to me. That's that's what's so exciting about. I'm excited for the game. It's don't get wrong. i'm. I'm just as excited if not more so For some of the traditions that we missed out on last year we had the i pulled this week. Which i mean as silly as they are. it did feel normal to have that when we did with the season around the corner. We'll have another one in a couple of weeks however the school's pretty much look the same. Do they not it did. It looked to me like they took last year's top ten reprinted for for the most part and look the stuff in some ways. That's where the sport is now. I mean you would be really reaching to try to come up with a different Top five than alabama clemson oklahoma ohio. State georgia you could reorder them if you would. But those are the five programs right now dominate this sport and in particular obviously alabama and clemson But the rest of it also looks pretty similar last year. I don't think notre dame is going to have a top seven team as this poll is predicting. I think they'll take a bit of a step back. I think number nine is awfully optimistic for north carolina. I've that hype. Train has gotten i i. I love when background on there but the hype seems to be ahead of what they've actually accomplished on the field. Florida is a team. That i think people expect to take a big step back so you know the top five again. Not no surprises there. But i would not be surprised at all if the teams below that look a lot different at the end of the year in stuart. Everyone somebody asked me the other day on on shohei. Wh what what team from outside the top twenty five Could be in the playoffs. And i want to say none but i won't. I won't go that crazy on you but you know who who does look like they could make a run at that elite status at the end of the year from outside of the suspects from outside the top twenty five would be it would be a hard one to two guest right now but I think lsu bounced back in a big way. I think last year was a perfect storm of terrible. coaching hires. Lots of opt out They were inexperienced team to begin with You know by default. They now know who their quarterback is going to be because my brain injury miles brennan's injury and You know. I certainly expect them to be in contention for the. Sec title Everybody laughs and every talk about texas but You know at the end of the day ever oklahoma and iowa state are getting all the attention that conference texas has has talent. I think the youth wherever they end up with a quarterback will be pretty good under sark and beat on robinson their sophomore running back If he stays healthy could be one of the most Exciting players in the whole country. So i also like i don't know if i make a playoff but i could see ole miss being surprise team this teeth and i think See their twenty fifth in this poll. I mean i could see them being a a new year sixteen maybe With with a couple of the right breaks obviously they need to get better on defense. They were just terrible. Last years as linked from the the first to admit but should have one of the most Productive offense in the country and just second year and that system Under kevin stewart. Let me get off the field for a second to the story that has dominated the airwaves here in a lot of places for three weeks now and that's texas and oklahoma. Things have quieted down. It seems like the the shooting has stopped. But what are you hearing from your sources An insiders around college athletics about where we are with not only texas. Oh you to the sec. And win but the possible realignment elsewhere. Why thing most of the focus is on those other eight big twelve schools. And what are they going to do to avoid just completely losing their their status as a power conference. I don't think they have a lot of great option But the interesting thing like you said the reason. Things have quieted down Is that everybody's in a holding pattern texas. Are you really going to wait until twenty twenty-five nobody believes it but as of right now that's the plan and if it is There's not much those schools can do just yet because they are they're number one strategy right now is to make sure texas no you pay every penny that they oh poor leaving no conference in both exit fees and if they try to leave early They have to pay Granted for the grant of rights That the conference own so if they're going to really stick it out then. I don't think that the remaining schools can add more schools because then texts. You could say well. It's not the conference we. We don't agree with that. That's not the conference we signed up for therefore we shouldn't have to pay the penalty. And obviously bob dole's b. Is concerned was concerned enough to send that letter to espn that. The a fee may charter read those big twelve schools and blow up the conference. So i think we're going to be a staring contest for awhile. I could be wrong. Maybe will wake up tomorrow and schools change conferences again but it seems like the initial panic after that news which was so shocking to everybody has worn off and now it's going to be a little bit more methodical stewart. Mandel with us from the athletic stewart. I wanna ask you about. Bob bos be because He he is well liked and well thought of..

"Revenue goes from being your power five conference something like seven to ten million per school which is in the real world big money but in college. Football kind of modest to twenty five thirty million or so a year And you know some conferences. That's about what they make in total revenue or some schools per year so Some people would say that the stretch. I'm sure if i call it up five other consultants. Some of them say. I know. I think it's going to be much lower than that But the reality is everybody keeps waiting for our bubble to pop with sports tv rights. And it hasn't happened With if anything it's the opposite as as more and more people move to on demand viewing and streaming and cutting their cable live sporting events or one of the few things left that you can really sell advertisers on the. Cfp is the most watched sporting event of the year outside of the nfl. And so you're taking going for three games a three-game event to an eleven game event. That's where where it becomes. Just a cash cow. And i know these are questions for down the road but with that much money being pumped into college football. There's a million questions. I could ask you on what it means and how it affects the sport. But i'm curious just without really knowing that we're going to get there soon but couple years from that with all that money come in the what changes and what's the impact well given the current climate around compensating athletes. And you've got you know Senators about to introduce bills and states and whatnot I don't think they can implement this without some sort of mechanism for the athletes to receive money now and i l. about literally next month about scum legal and a lot of these states. Nca supposed to pass something. We're a long ways of knowing how exactly that's going to play out. But i can absolutely see you know in the next playoff system. It's the You know the allstate sugar bowl and the players from the two teams get. Some sort of appearance fee from all date is not going to be the schools paying the players like new. Tv networks paying the players. But they now how will now have the ability to make money from their name. Image and likeness. And you know. I do think they'll be ways to To use that to maybe Address some of the ethical concerns of having players play as many as seventeen games in a season. An nfl regular season equivalent Without some sort of additional compensation an exciting time to be around college football. And i don't think we could've said that a couple of months ago Stuart thank you so much great to have you on all right. Thanks for you. Got one of the best around.

"And we welcome all of you back here on a tuesday afternoon college football dynasties from alabama notre dame de. Usc proved parody. Sounds better in theory than practice. That comes from stewart. Mandel of course who runs a college football part of the athletic. Thank you great to have you with us so much to talk about. Let's talk about this article first before we get way way too deep in the weeds on the cfp and they're really curious and eager to hear about your Your theory here. Good afternoon. Catherine paul Yeah this week on the athletic for running. A whole series about we're calling college. Football's parody panic And it's no secret. Fans are tired of the alabama clemson ohio state oklahoma reign over college football and in particular alabama. And i get it. And that's part of the big reason why we're looking at twelve team playoffs so My point and one of my article was. I don't think it's realistic. That you ever gonna see a version of college football where there isn't a small handful programs that dominate. Because that's been the case in the entire history of the sport. There have been a couple one off seasons or you gotta georgia tag national championship or certainly. Everybody remembers the two thousand seven season. And all those upsets but going back to walter camp to new rock ni to wilkinson and so on There's always a small handful of schools. That are the dynasties of that era. And i think it's frankly healthy for college football to have dynasties because it gives the rest of the country of dylan if you will to root against in stewart that brings us to the biggest story of the summer at least so far. Let's the what we're we're we're learning about. Cfp and i someone who has been at the front row of this conversation from the beginning When when it first started to trickle out i'm curious what went through your mind especially considering what a long journey. This has been paulin. That press release came out in late april and they just flat out told us all voluntarily that they were looking at larger playoff models. Twelve sixteen team. It went so against the way these guys have operated for twenty years. I you know frankly. I was a prank cranking us and i'll be honest i've spent you know lord knows how much time how many column inches i've spent on playoff expansion over the years and never had i realistically considered twelve teams. I just always assumed it would be eight and if it was going to go bigger than it would be sixteen. I never thought about twelve now that we've had some time to digest it. I think it's a good bottle Just kind of something in it for everybody. Whether it's your alabama and you're playing for a first round bye or you're an iowa state or indiana or somebody who never sniffs the playoff now but might make it in top twelve Model so i think. There's a lot to like about it. But i can't emphasize enough. What a drastic departure. This whole approach is from How the bcs operated and how the first seven years of cfp operated. in now. by now stewart. I know you've spoken to many important people and influential people and we're trying to get a better understanding. I've heard some of the players talk about this. But i'm still struggling to to accurately gauge. Where how they got from point. A. to point b. and i'm curious what you think was was the tipping point. I think the tipping point. I think it started with the twenty eighteen season. That when you first heard some grumbling afterward from Jim delaney from bob bowls. I think you frankly. Ucf winning twenty five straight games and not being able to get higher than a in. The rankings was an eye opener for people. And i think that's when the ties started to turn and you didn't have the original as many of the original commissioners that designed the fourteen playoff defending the fourteen playoff. How he got from there to here. I truly believe is about the sec. And greg sankey who have the least to gain from an expanded playoff given. They're already dominating the fourteen event but is able to see the damage. It was doing to the rest of the sport to have entire parts of the country. Most of the west coast not included not having an investment in the season. So i he recognized that they needed to do something but he wasn't going to agree to something that didn't benefit the se obviously and in eighteen playoff. He's he said this as much in eighteen playoff where six of the births are locked up For automatic bid is not necessarily an improvement over the setup. The sec has now twelve teams. Were helping them are large birds. Yeah now you've got a chance to spend possibly three four. There was one year that would have been five. Sec teams it's a win for that league but it's also a win for the other leagues. Who can feel like you know we have unless are champion is kind of like a fluky seven and five type team. The power five champions get in pretty much every year. Talking to stewart mandel stewart. I asked bill hancock this question the other day i was spoken to other people in and i know they're pointing toward two years from now but we both know there. There are many complications. It seem to me you you hire a bunch of lawyers and they can work through these rather easily but What is your level of confidence that we get to this soon. As opposed to having to sit around and wait for this thing to finally unwind and four or five years everybody bill and others keep warning off. Keep trying to temper expectations that we may just stay. Put through twenty twenty six. It's really complicated. There's so many contracts involved. But i believe once they. They've gone so fred thank. You does not get on a call with the national media and a spouse the merits of a twelve team playoff. And then they're gonna turn around and a few months and say Five more years of the current system that that would be such a buzzkill for everybody now. They've put this out there And especially if they think it's doing damage to the sport. Which was the message. I got from that call. Why would you subject yourself for another five years of it. There is a lot to unwind But espn has a strong strong motivation to For them to do it earlier so that they would have the exclusive rights to Our exclusive opportunity to hold onto it. If it goes through the rest of the contract then they can. Then let's see if he can put it up to market and fox and bid on it and cbs and whoever else and you know no guarantee that espn keeps if they If they basically pay up and and make it worth their while then yeah. I think they're gonna find a way to to start it earlier. I also think that's why you see the bowl games still tied to this because they do have contracts those bowl games through twenty twenty six and i don't think it would be that easy to just say. Were kicking you guys out three years early. I think that's why they're That model has bowl games hosting both the quarterfinals in the semi-final stewart talking to stewart mandel from the athletic Here you know you. You've done a lot of work on this and the numbers are staggering in relation to. What all this could be worth. I know where we're estimating But i don't think it's too difficult to gauge. Where we're this going Share with us. What you've learned and and and how much money are we talking about here. Billion ball billions per year I worked with A firm called navigate who is a consulting firm or so out of the conferences and they modeled this right now. The tv deals worth on average six hundred eighty million dollars a year. That gets split among the various conferences They believe a twelve team. Playoff would triple that amount.

He's a big name and he's had success before and i get that but it just seemed like it was just such a terrible fit. He tried to revamp their scheme entirely. And this was a program. That had success under dave randall. On defense it wasn't broken. Tried to completely revamp the scheme regardless of the personnel. They lost so many guys to the draft last year and then and then even more before the season. And i just wasn't a good fit and just just a historically bad defensively shoot this year.

Early Bowl Games, CFB Playoff & a Conversation with Jim Delany

"Joe's I'm Stewart Mandel L.. Joined by Bruce Feldman for our Christmas week episode Bruce a really special guest Pleased to have the outgoing big ten commissioner Jim Delaney on this show here a little bit. He is down to his last ten days or so on the job. But I How is your house your viewing experience first weekend of Bowl Games? It was good I got to see most of the Games. It was one thing I'll say is it was three. NFL Games. That ran on Saturday in those games. Were more competitive Than some of the bowl games I gotTA admit You know hats off to Fau. They had a coaching change and even without the coaching change. I think a lot of people would have thought okay. You have a bigger group of five really good team. SMU AGAINST A smaller group of five and it turned out to be a blow out but not the way. Yeah probably a lot of us would have expected so hats off to the owls. I thought that was a real head-turner The other one that jumped out at me. I think is Kent State it considering how bad that program was Not long ago I mean Sean. Lewis has stepped up there and really made a a huge impact. They are a fun team to watch they at their first bowl win in school history On the first first day of the bowl games it was one of those reminders of what I think because they had to really scrap just to get to be bowl eligible. I think that they are a great example of Y. No there aren't too many bowls it's five hundred team that got into a bowl game. They were impressive how they handled it. And it means a ton to that program Graham and I think Those players deserve the spotlight. Yeah I got that one wrong. I picked Utah State to win by like thirty. Whoops that's bowl season for ya the SMU ONE SMU Fau? Definitely surprise me as well. I think that that. SMU's one of those teams that got a lot the hype because they were doing things they hadn't done a long time and then it just kind of unraveled You know their their signature win was TCU and then TCU doesn't end up making a ballgame So hey that crazy shootout with memphis though You know it's interesting. There was a time when everybody was lobbying for their respective team. Conference for the Group of five New Year six bowl and Michael Rescue was furious that at one point. SMU is ranked behind Appalachian State. Obviously Mountain West. People were furious. That Boise State didn't get more credit Compared to the AC and then both SMU eastbound Boise State Mountain West Champ gets blown out by Washington honestly a Washington team. That wasn't all that great this year but I felt like nick and kind of I think you had the same hunches. Well and Chris Petersen's last game that they would. They would come to play and they did. That was a Thorough domination and now we all wait to see what Jacobson do. Yeah look I mean this is now Jimmy Lakes program. There's already been a little staff shakeup. Bush Hamden the offense coordinator. WHO's there for two seasons? He is already out as well as One other offense of assistant so one thing to keep an eye on and I'm GonNa have a story on this on the athletic Later this week is there's a lot of sizeable offensive coordinator vacancies out there. So Bunch in the PAC twelve oregon is looking for an offense coordinator as his Washington. As is cal- I think there's going to be quite a few more coming There's you know look. There could be a few big ones in the south as well as the ones that already have had coaching changes. This is where they're looking for guys so it's an interesting subplot to keep an eye on over the next couple of weeks Again as we mentioned a few weeks back You you know. We both have a lot of respect for Chris. Peterson thought it was cool. To see the way he went out We'll see if he ever comes back to coaching or what he does next. He's somebody I would. I'd love to have on the podcast at some point down the road Just because I always thought he was one of the more interesting people in coaching even though sometimes he didn't always WanNa show oh you his hand publicly so hats off to him stew before we get to Jim Delany though This is probably our only chance to restore at least on the audible to talk about the semi final games. And you'd think it feels like they're way off in the distance but as we're taping this They're less than a week away. feels like the right up on us. Does I mean to me. The teams arrived working on this part on Sunday night and the teams arrived. I think a couple of them at least arrived in Phoenix already. It's nuts it's It's playoff semi final week already. So how do you break this down. I know you didn't want to tip your hand on what was going on especially in Europe ballgame. You're going to be covering the one in Phoenix covering the one Atlanta for the athletic. So Oh

Who do you think we should get? We're under a lot of pressure here because I got to say, well, I was out sick last week, by the way, still not fully recovered. This is the longest cold I've ever had in my life. Your Manny interview was a huge hit and people are saying maybe one of the best we've ever had. How do we follow that up? We better get a big name. Somebody's a good storyteller. Rack, your brain stew? Oh, I know who you have in mind. Without further ado, we are pleased to be joined by our old colleague and probably our one of our favorite guests. Dave wants that coach the first thing I want to talk to Super Bowl week. You have an interesting connection to this patriots. Rams matchup in that. You're the one when you're the head coach at Pittsburgh who recruited Aaron Donald, and Stu I did a little digging back. Aaron Donald best player argue in the. NFL certainly the most dominant defensive player only ranked as a three star recruit and ranked as the thirtieth best offense tackle coach who did you beat out to get him. You know, what might have been like temple? I mean there were no major division once goals. And I think the biggest thing was his height and people still bring that up. You know, what the six foot, and you know, everybody's looking for that six three six four defensive linemen. And you know, fortunately, I had a lot of experience with guys Aaron Donald sires. I'd Russell Maryland. As you remember Bruce dot at your a moderate Miami. And then I had Chris ori-, you know, when I was at the barriers so in our steam defense, the oh the strengths in the abilities that Aaron Donald had as far as is quickness and his leverage in his awareness.
