"A TV director yet. No way. Oh amazing. Well, we watched the first episode and it was brilliant. And it's been on our list and I won the right time where I'm like not working and I just can watch it because it was so good. Thanks. That's why I interrupted you in case you said it was shit. It was in Australia, right? Yeah, in Australia in around Adelaide. That's where I'm from. That's where he's from originally. Shut up. No way. So we need to talk about Mary's poppin then. Mary's pop. Adelaide's only gay bar. That's changed. It's called the Mars where I grew up, it was called the Mars bar and it got snuck in the back door when I was 16. To watch the dragon shows. No way. I'd like quite kind of famous for only having one gay bar. I mean, it has technically had more than one gay bar, but they're always fabulous and otherwise got a great gay LGBTQ+. We love our lives. We missed it because we normally go every year. We have Loughlin hasn't been able to see his family for three years now. We love that. And I can't believe you directed that show. So honestly, the first episode we were like loving it. And I keep saying we need to watch what we need to watch at me to get some VPN here, so we can get BBC. I don't think we tell the director of the show. We're going to watch legally. It would still be a player. All I'm going to say is ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN is my friend when I'm away. That's all. Okay, so prince androgyny has been watching man in the orange shirt. A book written by Patrick Gayle adapted for television a couple of years ago, it's beautiful. And people have been reading Lorenzo has been reading obscene acts in a private book, never heard of it, Lorenzo sounds great. Don't forget about me by other Russell real life by Brandon Taylor. YouTube reading on holiday or you just turning. I just finished a book by the author of the Martian. Do you remember that? It became a film with Matt Damon. Oh yeah. Called Hail Mary by Andy weir, but like a sci-fi feel like my taste in books and titties like my taste in men very eclectic. It was good actually, like very entertaining. I wish everybody could see Luke's face. I was like, it was a bit like the marble worktops moment. I'm not reading anything at the minute I should be, but I would say when I'm on holiday I'm gonna read and then I just get I've got a drone so I've been flying my drone all the time in annoying everyone in. So that's my version of reading and just taking my time. Well, it's relaxation. You're on holiday. You do whatever you want. Exactly. Boys, you've been amazing. Thank you so much and thank you so much for everything you have done with this campaign. I'm calling it a campaign now. And good luck with the rest of it and I hope you find your dream home. Do let us know how you get on. I hope you're writing and let us know. Yeah, definitely. So listeners, next week, it's LGBTQ+ adoption week and we're asking, have you considered LGBTQ+ adoption? And we're going to be talking to none other than unlikely dad, aka Tom Cox, who is wonderful and I followed him for ages on Instagram and he is a queer dad who's adopted a son and is the shares his story really and good interior design. So maybe you two should have a look at you. Get in touch at homo sapiens on Instagram at homo sapiens podcast on Facebook, send us your agony uncle's emails your comments, questions. And agony uncles to hello at homo sapiens podcast dot com have a look in the show notes for ways that we can donate to help the cause in Ukraine for LGBTQ+ specific places and also just general to do everything we can to try and help and things in and around that will be developing over the next week or so as well from us. Loughlin and Luke, thank you so much for being amazing guests and coming with me on this homo sapiens journey. Thank you so much. Thank you so much for having us. Thank you. Pleasure. Thanks a lot. Bye now. It's so nice out there. Out there in the Mexican markets where chili stretch in the sun. High in the mountain air between backcountry skis and kids doing the first snowplow.

"Louisiana and there's only room for anything. I mean, you couldn't imagine how many plants were in this thing. And we stopped there with a guy who actually was the creator of the uncorrelated. He took a shot into Evelyn. He wanted her to have all these days. Well, coming back across country. But now the plants are hot and dry. You got to take all this stuff out, find a place where it pull into a motel and get a hose bail back there in the back and a loading dock what are all this stuff and let it drain and put it all back in the vehicle, spend the night next morning, get up and inside and windshield be so fail we're condensation, water dripping everywhere from all of those plants. And then we try to take off some big old lizard crawls across the Netherlands, Nick, so she's driving all the way back, what beetles and lizard and everything else trying to make it home with all those plants. Luckily, she didn't divorce me right there. We laugh and say, she wasn't 8 or better. Yeah. So tighter. Yeah, I was imagining how you were handling water and all those plants. How many days did that take? Well, we actually had to stop twice. It was about a four or 5 day trip. And you got to stop. You just don't go in and get plants. You got to stop spending time with your Friends. And I said, plants set there during the day in your car. Once you previously acquired dev was certainly one of back in the day there, we had this old Mazda van at about 300,000 miles away. We hadn't moved in here yet, and I had bought an old World War II trailer. It was actually it was a truck somebody had cut in half and made a trailer from an old World War II truck. And it looked like the decades. That old Mazda van, and it sounded like you pull up to a drive in or drive through channel a Taliban was out there with a bomb. We drive here and there with that thing and low death thing, drive home with a win is down and our neighbors thought we had moved in. They say this whole vehicle and this old trailer. And we live in a pretty nice neighborhood. Well, they thought we were stealing Galilean landings and I thought y'all were stealing. I'm glad you didn't call the police. Yeah, there's a lot of things went into this. Well, just plain miserable days actually. Every day wasn't fun. As you know, because you work in the field. There's a lot of days where there's have to. I have to water. I have to do this. I have to get this thing planned in the beginning. There were so many have to. I would just conclude with this. I'm mindful of the fact that the vast majority of people come here. Either don't have or don't want to have what we've got here with a land and all of the plants and all the work associated with it. This is not for everybody. I get that plus almost a 100% of the people out there that have come here bless her as a visiting scientist. We're not going to have access to these plants. Steven, get convinced that almost all people that come here they appreciate what they see and what's been done here..

"I don't say I go out there and hang them, I don't want them. I don't want to have mysterious private conversations with them. I do touch them from the context of printing. I think I'm some love. I've had a lot of time to think about this. And I don't think I'm so cultist or anything, but I think these plants are aware of my presence in that I'm a good steward of the land. We don't have a lot of animals both of us here. Maybe there's this semiotic relationship with the plants, the trees, the animals, or everything, kind of coexist your peacefully. It's kind of my private thoughts on it. I don't know to share that. Might scare people away. No. I think there's some take that. Everything living is connected on some strand. Much smart enough to know what that is or I'm not sure anybody is totally and you could go into plants and the roots on plants, I read a lot. Be a fascinating read for you sometime. If you've never looked at the plants and yours each other have a plant, one of them out there is not doing well. The other plants will, with their roots, tend to nurse that plant. Well, there's a lot of connectivity we don't understand. I'm a certified arborist and when I was studying for that, I started reading about macaroni and the different things that are happening at the tips of the root of the trees and plants. And it just was so fascinating and it opened up a whole another world to me. I don't go out and study it really, but it was just really fascinating to hear about that and to hear you say that and understand. There's more to it than it's a tree we're sticking in the yard. Absolutely, and are you married? Yes, sir. You got children? I do. All right, well, just like your children and your wife, they got needs and requirements to be happy and it's your job to help supply those requirements and just the same thing with plants..

"There's plenty of plants to meet your needs there with a little research. Now that's one. Selecting some variety out there, getting away from this monocultural planting, which is never good. You remember the old island cypress. Still a lot like them. We'd rather we plant them as a specimen plant. They're not bad plants, but you put them in a big row where there's no air circulation, you're inviting in all kind of problems from diseases and they're not particularly drought tolerance. So it's not a good way to use them. People have learned that they don't too much years later than Cyprus anymore. Another thing, the Russians have a good saying, too soon old, too late smart, and I'm too soon old and too late smart here on this. When you plant a specimen plant, let's say you got this beautiful, perfectly shaped spruce refers Japanese your eye can only take in really one thing at a time. And in the beginning and I say this all over. I would plant plants too close to an I'm trying to look at that specimen plant. My eye would be distracted by all this noise going on around it. It's like putting too much garden art out there around the plant. Just noise going on. So learn when you go up there and play 304 $100 for a beautifully shaped Japanese maple or perfect Conifer that you're going to stick out there and you just want your eye to focus and appreciate that. Keep other plants away from it, learn and make that a focal point. So that was one that I think people could learn a lot from another one again is learning where and how to plant all these things. We mentioned in the book last one would be printing and you know the old term crate murder for Craig myrtles, not knowing how to prone or not carrying enough to know how to priming at the right time of the year, so you don't prime to blow them off. None of this, Greg is rocket science. None of it's hard to learn. People say, boy, you sure are smart, and I say, no, I'm not smart. What I've got is every day of my life for over the last 40 years. I've done this. And if you do something every day of your life or over 40 years and you know it become pretty intelligent about it, you're pretty stupid. If I am smart, it's because through repetition, you keep doing things and learning, subtracting and some of this stuff is not hard to learn. It's just homeowners don't know. Landscapers don't take the time to know. What's your earliest garden memory? When I was a little kid, I don't know how that was. My daddy was not an educated man. He was a smart man. But he wasn't educated. He took me out in the Woods one time, and he was making various play instruments like a little whistle and he made a whip out of a Hickory. He would say this is a dull wood, and this is a Hickory. This is a Michael. This is willow tree. And for whatever reason, that just fascinated me, and to the point where I am 76, and I still remember that..

"You're out in the middle of somewhere and trying to find a post office or first of all, box it up, all that. It's just not something you readily do. I'd say, you know, three weeks, part of the max shelf life. Can you tissue cultural Conifer? Or is it all seed and coatings to reproduce? I don't know of any that have been tissue culture. It's really out of my knowledge base. The problem with a seed is things do not come true from seeds. So if you're looking at a specific plant, and you want to clone a plant revealing way to get a clone of that is to take a cutting of it, then you've got the exact DNA of that plant. We typically will find a lot of plants that are bizarre. In fact, I invite you out some time to see this, but we are known not only for a rare collection, but unusual collection. Just like in the human world, where you got tall people short people fat people skinny people. Unfortunately, people that are born deformed, the same thing, the plant world. You take a thousand seats and throw them out there and you're going to get some genetic variability in those seed. One in a thousand may come up very slender. It may look like a toothpick. Another 1 may come up contorted. Another 1 may come up with an unusual leaf or you may have just a mutation on a branch. It comes out whole plants grain and one branch comes out variegated and you find that variegated plant for nurserymen. It's a chance for them to make some money because they found a new plant. They give it a name. A lot of talents today plant patented tell us about your book, conifers and ginkgos for southern landscape. First of all, the motivation and I think we say that pretty well in the book. But motivation. I'm good friends with Doctor John roder and John rotors over university of Georgia.

"We got one. Today, I say, loose like a bad hair day. Sorry, buddy, you got to go, I'll eat or try to give you away to somebody who can do something with it or it goes on the trash heap. That just painful sometimes, but that's a decision we always Gardner is going to make. And nothing more off putting to me than to go to a garden and see a bunch of ghastly looking plants. I got a performer they're out of there. Absolutely. The last thing I'm going to say and just get back to your questions is that pruning for aesthetics, as well as well-being of the plant. We prune probably more than any place that I know. This time of the year, two things are being going on moving plants, relocating them and printing. Those two things are going on and this winter time because you can see the skeleton of the plant and you can kind of see what you want to remove, taking your time to prune that thing right and remember you can't stick that cut back once you make it because judicial in what you're doing. Learn to prune. Have your plant looking good and I just saying, I've got one. And so many gardens, they don't do that. I assume you're talking about hand printing and not power sharing, right? Yeah. Boy. Great question. Hand pruning. Now, some of the big shrubs, we are pruning strictly for aesthetics, but the hand printing Yale has done all those all of our Michaels your hand pruned or conifers your hand prone, are blooming plant or all handprint. It just may be those big shrubs, maybe it's a boxwood or something a Holly pruning for a shape. What is the difference between an arboretum and a garden? Yeah, I want to differentiate between the botanical garden and arboretum. Arboretum is a Latin word Arbery's trace. Radom means place. So arboretum is literally a place for trees normally extended to mean exotic trees, not 90, but exotic trees..

"You chose is kind of a sweet spot for conifers? I know you've talked about it had all these different conditions there. Is it have to do with the latitude or anything like that? What? You've been reading my mail, haven't you? That's a great right insightful question. Yeah, latitude has a lot to do with it. A lot of times I'll just go in there to our globe in the study and I'll get that globe and I'll just spin it around and look latitudinally at what's what? We find a lot of things and it's not just latitude it's elevation. Mexico has become a new frontier for us. Man, I could talk all day about some of this stuff. But I'll just confine it to Mexico for a moment. We think about Mexico when you watch these clinics with movies being high and dry and desolate and flat. Highest elevation in North America east of the Mississippi River is male Mitchell, North Carolina. And it's only about 6000 feet give or take. You go down to Mexico and they see here a migraine orientale and Oxford in town. You got mountains north of 19,000 feet. Those mountains in those cloud forests and what have you, you've got a lot of snow, a lot of code and a fair number of conifers. It's a little known fact the highest number of species of pine anywhere in the world is found in Mexico. Now why is that? Because the glaciers, when it glaciated, North America pushed those plants down into Mexico and they found refuge and lived down there. So a lot of that material comes from cold areas. We're able to bring it back up here and sort of repatriate it. Now, that's one thing is looking at elevation. Same thing in Tibet, Nepal and parts of China, the Himalayas, another area that we find works very well. Here's Taiwan. Another one is a genus out there. AB's first first typically don't do well in the southeast. They're high elevation plants that were just too hot for them and our summers, the evenings are too hot. Some of these furs out of that grace in turkey and the Caucasus Asia Minor, they wonderful here. They just have never been tried. People took the dogma, they won't grow here, so nobody ever drew them. Blowing an answer, but why do they grow here? Some of it is latitude. We're at 1200 feet right here where we are, which is not terribly high. We got a little bit of a Lake effect from the pond we have and also a 32 acre close bias. Pretty good soil here. Another thing is drainage conifers, black drainage, I'm glad I remembered to mention that to you. None of our land here is flat for the most part. It drains well. That helps a lot. We can grow things. It can't grow in Michigan, and we can grow things that can't grow in floor. Some things that are in Michigan will grow here because we get cold enough. Some things in Florida will grow here because we're warming it. Does that make sense? Yes, it does. The top guru in the world on conifers is a guy named zoster breezy from Hungary. Visit here three times and he wrote an article on this and he called this a Conifer sweet spot where you're able to pull things from both constraints and they would live here in this area, sort of a little niche area if you will. You couldn't do this in Oklahoma, you couldn't do it in Nevada. You couldn't do it and Mike and Georgia. The great plasma Michael der, he asked me in one of my earlier questions, written questions about who was one of my influencers and certainly right doctor Michael der from university of Georgia is considered in the south, one of the gurus..

"So I would literally coming home at night, getting home and the evening would be dark and flashlight in one hand, a hose and the other swatting mosquitos trying to keep these little plants alive. We didn't have irrigation back then. Wherever we could go and get plants, somebody give us something and we could order it. It was no order to it. No thought to how big it was going to get no definition just stick arboretum, if you will, just sticks out there. Well, those things grew over time, some of them we lost. Most of them we didn't by sheer dedication and a lot of dead gum hard work. We kept things growing into some of them were pretty good sized trees. That's the genesis of all this. A little we grew created a database, our daughter created a website for us, which was a big deal. Thing I was always good at was almost always good at networking with people. Finding people to connect with as our collection group are notoriety grew around the world. And next thing you know, people were willing to send us material that nobody else was getting. We traveled to 51 countries to include China twice, Spain. We were in Russia. We've had the benefit of meeting with the top scientists around the world, wherever we'd go, they top scientists would always carve time out and meet with us on our last trip, the top Conifer expert in Mexico drove 5 hours from Guadalajara over to where we were, spent a day on the cloud forest of Mexico. All that to make the point because of these connections and because of our notoriety, we had access to a lot of material nobody else did. Then we had people to propagate for us. That's pretty much how we came to be since 1990. The ups and downs have been very few downs. This is brought me more pleasure, particularly today as I've gotten to where I can't get out of the wheelchair much..

"You just got to know that you got a garden for summer as well as winter in terms of how you treat that plant. You got to give it drainage. How do you cite it? Is it ace west, northeast orientation? Another mistake we made was planning things too close. Now, we still do that to some degree. We do that because we'll get a small plant. We'll get another small plant where there are two dead gun four apart in the beginning. So we'll put them closer to just help the landscape look a little better. Knowing in 5, ten years, they're going to have to be dug up and moved. If you're buying a plant that's 5, 6 feet tall or even three or four feet tall, you got to think about, what's that plant going to do in a couple of years? Is it going to outgrow its site and do I want to have to move it so quickly? So I'll allow space for your plants. Those are think are really probably some of the main mistakes we've made here. Now, you say you're always learning, what is the thing you most recently learned? I'm going to count yet another way we're doing some experiments right now with some very rare, very endangered parentheses, plants I'm never going to see again here. Plants that would be practically impossible for me to find so the experiment here, which is part of the learning you're alluding to is maybe those plants again from those areas that I can't get to probably in too much shade now for them to grow like I want them to grow. And moving those out into areas where, hey, they have more room to grow. They, there's more sunlight and say a different soil type. And just to see if they'll survive transplanting. This time of the year and we'll grow and prosper in more sun. I emphasize again, Greg that these are plants that I'll lose even one of these. It's going to really devastate makers. I said, they're just one of a kind plants that I was only to obtain overseas from people that would send me cuttings and we would get them propagated and they were very small. We've nursed them for years. Hopefully that in a roundabout way, answers your question. It's maybe not so much learning today but learning the effects of things that were doing. Oh, yeah, that's very fascinating. Very, very good thing to be learning. A junior wife Evelyn started an arboretum this operation we've been talking about so far in our conversation, Cox arboretum in 1990, and it's known for having some of the largest species collections in conifers and all of North America, maybe even the world. Tell us about Cox arboretum. Mid 80s, we turned around and moved here in 1990, and honestly all truth revealed I had no intention of doing what we've done..

"We've had to learn to incorporate perennials into the landscape. I used to find those pretty boring and not something I was interested in as I've gotten into those, particularly up a medium on a lot of interest there and also our visitors come and they always look for those little praying blooming ephemerals course another one that an old standby on the south are chameleons. Have the chameleons to sank with it tends to blow them in the fall into the winter. Then later on in the late winter, captain mid spring or the chameleon japonicus, those are also old Tammy proven good plants for the south. I would encourage you not to focus everything on spring bloom. One of the mistakes we make in the south in my opinion is that we focus so much who spring bloom. It was once a singer, some of your older listeners will remember a singer named Peggy Lee, Peggy Lee had a song called is this all there is. Recent song had a catchy title said, I shaved my legs for this and sort of the idea is that you plant everything for the spring and then when the spring is over, you're kind of left with a lifeless landscape. I would say be a four season gardener. Plant those things in the winter that's going to bloom like hello Boris. The bark, the winter interest, the conifers. The evergreen high age wrote a dinner, et cetera. And in the spring, you've got these wonderful colors, learn to find things that will transition into your late spring summer and then your fall color and then you're starting again. So don't just be a spring or don't make this is just all there is or a shade my legs for this syndrome. Back on the red, but even the ones that are developing New York. They're going to still be best and filtered by their developing where they're going to be more in full sun. They are really not developing a more for full sun. I think at least here where we are. You want to give them about three quarters of a day sun. Some of the real dark foliage ones. There's a new and I'll just plug called black pearl. It is a pearl or a gem of a plant. It might not fare as well and full afternoon sun, which I define as after 2 o'clock. You probably get by with it, but if you want to err on the side of caution, also with a variegated one the same thing. Give it a little afternoon shade. If you don't have afternoon shade, give it a go when the sun. I have a saying I use has served me well over the years. When you fall on your face, you're moving forward. So if you're not making mistakes, if you're not falling on your face, you're not moving forward. So I'll say to any gardener even the season gardeners, I continually learn. I make mistakes. I was asked one time how you get good judgment. And you get good judgment from experience. Well, how do you get experience from bad judgment?.

"There is a source as you allude to many of these plants that are not available and may never be available. Many of them are. They do have a plant name, which would help them search. So yes, I would say probably 75% of what we offer here is available somewhere. Curtis said that the best time to plant a tree was just her day. What is the best time of the season or the year to transplant a Conifer? It is right now. We spend the majority of our time in the winter long about November. We start transplanting, not just conifers, but our plants in general. That is done because plants don't read catalogs and sometimes you plant it and it becomes too big for the area and needs to be moved. We'll move this winter probably two or 300 plants around to other locations. I don't know if I'm mentioned it to you earlier. I'm now handicapped. I've got a rare and incurable autoimmune disease like ALS. I'm not able any longer to get out in walk in the arboretum so my time is spent pretty much an areas where I can either drive on my wheelchair or ride around on our four wheel Polaris. So many plants that we have planted here and there have to be moved or otherwise I would never see them again. Long answer to your question, but the very best time is right now. And the reason for that is the plant tends to be dormant. Conifers are never fully dormant. So one wall should be careful when they plant those not to leave them out of the ground too long with a roots can dry out. Not so much a concern for the non coniferous plants. I would say November through early march would be time. I don't like to do things in early March. You want to leave time before they start to lay out or start to actively grow for the roots to become reestablished in the ground. The winter is the best winter in life full. Spring is an exciting time because of the many blooms that are happening. What are some of your recommendations for spring blooming plants? Stick with the colorful thing for just a moment, then I'll move on to more your larger question. Most of the conifers produce a unusual growth pattern in the spring. Don't know if you've ever really observed one up close, but the buds start to elongate. Many of those or purple red, gray, silver, much of the growth becomes variegated or might turn yellow on the new growth, while they don't bloom in the strictest sense where one thinks of a bloom..

"So aside from the bark, again, the form in the texture, we also then look at evergreen interest. This serves a number of purposes, one is some life a say frequently say to people when they're Turing here in the winter. I have them look out beyond the arboretum. Now, let your eyes go out and look how lifeless the landscape is now in the forest. Everything is going to sleep. The unless your eyes come in and take a look at the arboretum and how much grain and how much is going on in there. And we literally have balloon 12 months out of the year. I said, you know, look how much life there is, so you're going from lifeless into life. So we use things such as Holly's rhododendron, azaleas. And of course, a lot of conifers. Let me point out first of all that we likely have and it's been documented the largest species collection of conifers anywhere in North America and perhaps even the western hemisphere. We are known for our rare and endangered collection of conifers as well as many that aren't rare and endangered, but they're rare in terms of the landscape in the southeastern United States. Before we started this program and I want to say we are one of the pioneers in planning conifers in the southeast to a large extent before us was really the JC ralston arboretum up in Raleigh and the Atlanta botanical garden. We were amongst that group of three to really go out and experiment with a lot of colors. We started to collect some determined that a lot of them are far more suitable here than might have first been thought. Another aspect for us, but I found conifers a very fascinating plant group.

"What should have happened right there? When you wanna challenge something usually challenge it because your coaches in the press box looking at the monitor confirmed to you. It's good to challenge. Clearly, he didn't get that type of information from the coaches and the press now they don't have a challenged the rest of the game. So the time out was taken anyway. But more importantly barista in Washington, they need to stop. They haven't had one all game. And this is the longest third out by far for the bison today. It's third and twelve they're on their own eighteen two receivers each way. Stick out of the gun stat pressure up the middle. He rolls out to the right is downfield. Fires bubbles intercepted. He threw it behind is intended receiver Darius shepherd and now there's there's Yellen players are getting in each other's face. Thirty calendar Kreiner is trail on the play and made the break-up, but it's four down nonetheless. And that's the first incompletion for eastern stick started six six. Plus, I one that what that was third down pass. It's the first time it wasn't play action. And the reason that the eagles were successful is they were in the face of the bison before the play was over rather than after the plane. It was tight man for man coverage. Nobody could get free eastern. Stick had the flush out of the pocket Wagner the pot. It's a short one. It bounces it mid field. And it's down by Cox on the bison side of the field at the forty five yard line. Now there is a flag back near the line of scrimmage. And this is going to go against North Dakota state. Holding offense number eighty two. Return? So already after what was only a twenty seven yard. Punt Al now, you add the ten yards and eastern Washington down to scores is going to have the ball inside. The bison forty eastern Washington already in four down territory. This is an excellent time to open it up. Get the ball in berry as hands get him out of the pocket. Try one of those throwback passes or deep sideline passes that have been so successful for them. Really the only successful advance of the ball. Down seventy three five seventeen to go with the second. Eric berry a team out there on their thirty nine yard line of North Dakota state. He's out of the convict him behind the snap. The hand off the fierce it tries the middle. And he's brought down from behind. Jibril? Cox was coming off the edge Levi. Jordan got him. Tom Cox down low to yards on first down. The bison are very good at timing up. There. Motions on defense their movements right before the snap on that particular case, they brought George high out to the split side. Right at the snap of the ball. He penetrated they slant it into it. Gradient Webster the receivers to the left. They said store motion left to right. Gary a fixed the play action. Look it down. Nearside intercepted by the bison short time. Trolley and coverage hits it off at the fifteen yard line. He was step for step with the tight end Henderson belt. And it's the first chart over the game and North Dakota state gets the ball right back beautifully. Played by George once again, they will route into the sideline a throwback type of pattern. Those the only things that have worked for the eagles. George Hines soared from the beginning shadowed, the receiver turned and looked at the throat. He caught the ball like a safety not like a linebacker. It just shows. This bison team is so tough to beat because they're so game aware twenty second interception of the season for North Dakota state second most in the FCS turnovers that had been eastern Washington's game this year eagles in their seven game winning streak to get here. Twenty three picks the last seven games. But now, it's the bison with the ball on their own fourteen. Brooks trying to stretch it out to the left, and he's bet right at the line may be one for tie Brooks out to the fifteen Dante Hayes making the tackle around the wasted second night, another one of those parameter overload plays for the players lined up, plus the pullers to that site. Try to outnumber the defense, but the eagles did an excellent job of matching the numbers. They really free flow to it. They had about five guys creating a rugby scrum right at the point of tackle. Wall rested on the sixteen to tight engine both on the line. Seth Wilson the tailback in an eye formation nightsticks Wilson right up the middle. He's wrapped up and spun down eastern Washington D fits now. Starting to get penetration up the middle. Chris Osho, wrapped it up the linebackers. Having a good second quarter and its third and long coming up as successful. As the bison have been running the ball to the perimeter. That's where most of the yardages been. It's been negligible up inside the inside defensive tackles and middle linebacker Cup that done a really nice job on those inside runs. Eagles played man for man last time, it smothered the receivers I would look for them to do the same thing. Again. Stick is out of the shotgun. Third and seven they need their own twenty four per first. Let's comes up the middle. It's picked up stick fires over the middle. And it's important complete. He was trying to lead Darius shepherd at the thirty. He threw it low shepherd couldn't.
