Fresh update on "tuscaloosa" discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Two additional opponents and we'll have that for you right here. Right now we're delighted to welcome back to our show Bruce Feldman Bruce from the athletic bruce thanks for being here I. Appreciate it very, very much and we'll get to the what the SEC is doing and what you may find interesting or speculating about that in a minute but I do WanNa talk about your piece recently about Charlie Charlie huff the Alabama Assistant I mean I. Think most people know who he is but I'm not sure outside of the inner circles of intercollegiate athletics. People were aware of how how well he is doing a great to have you on. Really Interested in hearing about your story on him. Yeah. I appreciate it So huff had has a pretty good reputation and in coaching circles he did a really good job at Penn state especially where. He coached he helped get saquon Barkley to penn state, and then really helped develop them and so for the story I you know I had seen that he was now ranked as the number one recruiter in the country according to two four, seven metric and that he had Gotten committed for the top fifty players in the country really during the pandemic and obviously a lot of people are GonNa go well, he's at Alabama. They always recruit well what's different a little bit with this though is that it's in the middle of pandemic and so you talk to people in recruiting world and they'd be like normally you get a kid and his family up to Tuscaloosa and Alabama's one of those places is one of the rare places that really does sell itself. But what do you do when you can't do those visits and that's where I think you start hearing about Charles Personality and the way he's able to connect with a variety different people engage them and so. I wanted to talk to a lot of the parents, some people who had been recruited by them not just the the Kerr Alabama guys I talked to a few of their, their their parents but also I talked to Saquon Barkley who had some great detail about not only why he sold him on more than just football to come to happy valley. But also really how he developed as a player and start hearing this from other other parents and people have had experience with them and I'll be honest with like you know Charles was the guy knew something about but to hear how he worked in why he's able to connect with players from natural people I thought was pretty fascinating. Well let's get a little bit deeper to that Bruce because I mean recruiting there. There are a lot of really great recruiters out there and it's hard to imagine saving putting a higher premium on anything other than this. But what what separates huff from everyone else. One of the things I heard from one of his former colleagues at Penn state was. He said he he personally he's really smart but he said he also has this great range. She was like, no this guy into any honky-tonk in Nashville and no every song lyric that you would hear over the course of the night and he can be like one of the other parents I spoke to said, you know Charles where you feel like he could be a big brother or an uncle and you have that instant family connection just because he seems very very relatable and it's very real where one the one of the things that they would tell me is like a lot times in recruiting you. Get somebody who's just really giving you a sunshine aspect to it and they said there's a lot of stuff he told us that was pretty direct and some of it always wasn't the most glowing necessarily but they felt like it was very real and I think that's why even some of the players who when halfway Penn State's ago to Mississippi State is like some of those guys parents said, you know what? My son actually is ricky slade senior if some was a five star recruit at Penn State, he said Charles Actually never coached my son at down because he ended up having to leave he said. He was like he still reached out to us as a family. We were never expecting. You know it wasn't like he wanted my son to transfer, but he had so developed a relationship and the feeling and the connection we had it's like he's still checks up on my son now and he's like my son has no. He's going to go to Alabama or transferring where he's now old dominion he's like but that is pretty rare and so I think those are that that dynamic and you kinda get a window into how it works and why In this regard, especially in the face of a pandemic where there's way less personal connection and time spent around people that I think it's something that he's been able to really Alabama have really benefited from. Chatting with Bruce Feldman of the athletic bruce were an hour away from at least feeling like the college football season is upon us when. We finally get the two additional SEC conference games. I know there is rampant speculation out there and and you know this league will. A lot of people will not be happy What do you think? Will. Make people the least happy when we finally see. This reveal a couple minutes. Yeah. I'm sure it'll be some level of inequity. Oh, this team is playing somebody an awful opponent or whatever. You Know Paul to me is the feeling of schedule being out there just makes the season's feel a lot more real I mean we're already we're almost in almost in mid. August. Right now I think because of the crazy nature of the pandemic and just so much. It's been like an avalanche of stuff to kind of Wade through We really feel like we haven't had a lot of time to talk about like all the run up stuff that you normally happen this time the year never mind like there was no sec media there are no media days but I feel like. Whenever these kinds of scheduling grids or anything like I..
Ford employees ask the company to stop making police cars
"Motor Company is out with a Ah, process that they're going through about 100 employees have gone public with their request to the automaker to stop selling police vehicles because Police are brutal and they're racist. Ford executives are weighing the request and have not yet made an announcement. But there's a lot of pressure on social media for Ford to tell police departments they will no longer sell. The vehicles to them. So what is Toyota get vehicles them selling, you know, picking up the slack market share because right now serious, San Diego has Toyota four runners the SUVs. So I mean, thie employees air urging the cut that their boss the company do not make and sell. Ah police units. Ah, police cruisers to city so that Some other. There's still gonna be police cars. Why would you not want to get your fair share of that market place? If your employees of Ford apparently, these people don't want their jobs, I mean, I would put them on the top of the list of fire. All right, somebody safe and your name to the layoff list If we lose the contract, you know, with the Tuscaloosa, Alabama Police Department that you're the 1st 1 to relinquish your well, why don't you just quit forward then? I mean, why? Why? Why does four have to stop making the product? That's what they're in the business of doing is making automobiles. Yeah. Bia Social Justice warrior full time. You don't need to work out. Ford, you know, support is not consistent with your values. So be a social justice warrior. Put your money where your mouth is and quit your job, mate. This This is absurd. I've decided. I don't like it. Don't don't want to give Ah police Cruiser to Ah! Ah, car to the police. But does that mean that you also are going to use 901? I'd love to get the name of the 100 people and block their ability from their cell phone to dial 911 is apparently where they don't need no police and there's their community. They don't need cars. They don't need police. So no. 911 for you. I mean, this is where you start pointing out the Um, the bankruptcy of some of these folks in terms of what they're saying, their advocate and and the absolute absolute juvenile nature of these causes. I mean, this is child's play, right? I mean, this's not thoughtful. This isn't academic. This isn't deep. This isn't even You know, argumentative. I mean, this is this is just this is foolishness. This is this is child's play. The head of Ford has sent a letter to employees and it it reads in part, quote as we meet weekly in our global team huddles. Invariably there are questions that don't get answered, given the short time we have together. Or simply would be better addressed off line. On it goes on to talk about. Ah Ah, you know the fact that quote Bill Ford, and I believe deeply that there is no room for systemic repression and racism that have been exhibited by law enforcement encounters gone wrong. Um Your your product had nothing to do with it. Why are you taking ownership of part of the problem? You made the car. You didn't make the police officer or even the police officer's equipment or the rule book and I go back to having a CEO of a company. Come out with a statement like that. That that somehow they've made the judgment that racism was driving. Ah, ah, the inappropriate use of force. Again. I don't think we can say that. I think it's nice to say Well, if the cop is white, and the suspect was black, the victim was black. So therefore it must be racism. That's a pretty lousy assumption to be making. And to have a CEO of one of our largest companies come out and basically validate that and then go on in a what is a nine paragraph letter explaining how they're wrestling with this decision about literally saying we're not gonna sell cars to a pretty significant portion. You know, we had at least I think 600 800 cars. Andi. I know that these are not cheap cars. So let's say that there because they're there outfitted with a bunch of special equipment and stuff. So let's say that these cars are 50 grand each for the city of San Diego. Alone. That's a $40 million hit for Ford. For just a cycle of vehicles $40 million. That's just for San Diego Police department, then multiply that by all the police departments across the country. Your shareholder and Ford. Relatively ticked. Out on the opposite end of the spectrum. I'm not a shareholder in Ford. I'm relatively ticked. I'm just relatively tick that the company is taking this kind of stance. Whether they're toward with their emotions. It's the car. It isn't the attitude of the law enforcement official. It isn't It isn't anybody. It's it's the inanimate object, but yet they feel like that. Somehow they're contributing to systemic racism by manufacturing, a police unit. Now on the other end of the spectrum. A CEO of a food company paid a small compliment to President Trump. A Rose Garden ceremony yesterday. And now he is facing calls for resignation, and even members of Congress have urged people to boycott the food manufacturer.

Greatest Hits: Well-traveled Bodies
"In the winter of nineteen seventy six the six million dollar man. Tv show was filming in a haunted house in Long Beach. California when a crew member went to move a garish looking dummy to a different spot. The dummies arm broke off at the elbow. It was then that the crew member noticed the end of a human bone. Sticking out of the truncated limb. This wasn't a mannequin. This was elmer mccurdy a career criminal who died sixty five years earlier in Oklahoma. My Name's Moxy. And this is your brain on facts as forensic science slash true crime slash weird history buff of the first order. I almost didn't include mccurdy in today's episode of well-traveled corpses. Because his story makes all of these lists. But you know me. I like to be thorough. Elmer mccurdy was born January. First eighteen eighty two an unwed mother and adopted by his uncle and aunt. The first twenty years of his life were fairly unremarkable until a string of personal losses led him to say screw it. I'm ago Robson. Trains a brief stint in the army. Seen him trained to use nitroglycerine for demolition and he decided to blend the two careers the trouble was he tended to be heavy handed with the explosives once costing his gang ninety percent of the money in a safe he blew their remaining ten percent that they did get was in coins. That were melted together. Mccurdy's final robbery took place on October. Fourth Nineteen Eleven Niro Keys Oklahoma. When mccurdy and his men mistakenly stopped a passenger train instead of the one carrying four hundred thousand dollars that they were after the men were only able to steal about forty six dollars from the mail clerk some whiskey a pistol and the train conductors. Watch a newspaper account of the robbery called it quote. One of the smallest in the history of train robbery even still a two thousand dollar bounty was put on mccurdy and someone gave him up in the wee hours of October seventh. Apostasy of sheriff's tracked mccurdy to a Hacia using bloodhounds. Gunfire was exchanged for over an hour and in the end. Mccurdy was shot in the chest and killed mccurdy. Spotty was subsequently taken to the Johnson funeral home in Husk Oklahoma where it went on claimed Joseph Johnson the owner and undertaker embalmed body with an arsenic based preservative and stored it in the back of the funeral home refusing to bury the body or release it until he had been paid for his services. Johnson then decided if he was going to get any money out of this situation. He'd have to be more proactive. He dressed the corpse up in street. Clothes place to rifle and mccurdy's hands and stood up in the corner of the funeral home for a nickel apiece. Visitors could see the bandit who wouldn't give up. Mccurdy became a popular attraction at the funeral home and also drew the attention of carnival. Promoters though Johnson refused numerous offers to buy the mummified body in nineteen sixteen a man claiming to be elmer mccurdy's long lost brother got permission from the sheriff to take custody of the body and ship it to San Francisco for a proper burial. The following day Johnson released the body to this man and an accomplice who then put it on a train bound for Arkansas City Kansas. Then were in fact. James and Charles Patterson owners of the Great Patterson Carnival shows where mccurdy's corpse would be featured until nineteen twenty two when Paterson sold his operation to Louis. Sonny Sonny use mccurdy's corpse in his Traveling Museum of crime show which featured wax replicas famous outlaws such as Bill Doolan and Jesse James in Nineteen Twenty eight. The corpse was part of the official sideshow that accompanied the Trans American footrace. In thirty three it was acquired for a time. By director Duane Esper- to promote his exploitation film narcotic with an exclamation point in a very William Castle style move. The corpse was placed in the lobby of the theater as a dead dope. Fiend by this time some twenty two years after death mccurdy's body had become fide. The skin was hard and the body had shriveled to the size of a child. Esperer claims that this deterioration was proof of the danger of drunks. Mccurdy's corpse would bounce between warehouses and movie sets for the next four decades damage from mishandling. Meant that the corpse was no longer all that lifelike which is how it found. Its Way to the left in the dark funhouse at the Pike in Long Beach. After it was discovered that he wasn't a mannequin mccurdy was sent to the La Coroner by this time. The body was essentially petrified and had been covered in wax and layers of paint. It weighed about fifty pounds or twenty three kilos and was sixty three inches or one hundred sixty centimeters tall. Some hair was still visible on the sides. And back of the head but mccurdy's ears big toes and many of his fingers. Were missing of all the clues that lead the coroner and accompanying historians to determine the mummy's identity. The most interesting was found in the courteous mouth. It had nothing to do with. His teeth was a nineteen twenty. Four penny and ticket stops to the one forty West Pike side show and the Louis Sunny Museum of crime. The discovery made national headlines and an actual distant relative came forward to claim mccurdy's body which was buried on April twenty second nineteen seventy seven in the boot hill section of the summit new cemetery in Guthrie Oklahoma next to the actual body of outlaw. Bill Doolan two feet of concrete were poured on top of the coffin to ensure that mccurdy's rambling days for over mccurdy. Hardly the only outlaw turned famous. Mummy take the case of one. Hazel Farris born in Kentucky in eighteen eighty orphaned as a child and later married to a man with whom she drank heavily and fought loudly. Her history is morphed into folklore but by all accounts on August Sixth Nineteen Five. The couple had an argument over Paris's desire to buy a new hat. If you've been in a relationship for any length of time you know that wasn't really what they were fighting about. The two came to blows and Farris ended up shooting. Her husband who died on the living room floor. Neighbors heard the gunshots summoned police. The situation did not improve upon their arrival because fairus shot and killed them to a passing. Deputy Sheriff heard. The Commotion Gained Entry. To the House and tried to restrain Farris during the scuffle. The deputy tripped on Ferris's husband's body accidentally firing his gun and shooting off. One of her fingers there is eventually broke free and fatally shot the deputy as well so she shot the sheriff and she did shoot the deputy with five murders under her belt and a five hundred dollar reward for her capture which I couldn't put into modern figures because the inflation calculators don't go back that far fairus fled to Bessemer Alabama to try to begin a new life. One version of her story has her posing as schoolmarm another as her working as a prostitute. Both agree that she drank excessively she took up with a new man and when they became engaged fairus confided in. Him who she really was. He immediately gave her up to police on December twentieth. Nineteen O six fairly certain. She wouldn't emerge victorious from a second shootout. He sulfurous committed suicide by drinking combination of Whiskey fuel. Oil and Arsenic Ferris's body was taken to Adams vermillion furniture which also sold caskets and as such functioned as the local funeral parlour. No one came forward to claim her body which was strangely mummifying rather than decomposing. There is speculation that it's because of the chemicals Ferris drink but I don't put a great deal of stock by that regardless of the reason the corpse had longevity and a certain renown Adams began charging curious visitors ten cents to see the notorious outlaw. After a time Ferris's body hit the road. When atoms loaned the corpse to various exhibitors including his brother and Tuscaloosa Palace of wonders sideshow operator Captain Harvey Leabeau's well and OC Brooks who featured the well preserved remains in his traveling show for forty years when he died brooks left Hazel to a nephew on the condition that any money raised from displaying her be donated to charity. As the story goes Brooks's nephew displayed. Ferris's mummy to raise money to build churches in Tennessee.

It'd be told and since they won't go and tell them. I decided I had to be the person to tell them now. What is interesting is that I could get a job my first job out of Knoxville. What is that sports illustrated so I can get a job at Lodges Sports magazine in the world but couldn't get one in my hometown. Newspaper reminded me that every time I go should be sending a thank. You note saying thank you for not hiring me so I can go out and see the world but that meant that meant a lot. I mean that could not get heart my hometown paper and And whenever I go back I remind them how Tuscaloosa be.

I was editor of the last seven years. In fact we have a book coming out in July call. The Best of emerge at Ballantine books are published in the New York arm of Random House and it has the best collection of Of our stores over the years so it was very different and quite frankly one day soon expected starbuck and what was some of the highlights of of that publication well We did a lot of things and we're proud. We got the most attention because the way we Took on Clarence Thomas Random as the amount of not hit and they may ramp two years later. The Lawn Jockey for all right and That's the kind of thing that you've seen single Clarence Thomas. Today people mentioned that though. That's that's not a lot of stories. I'm I'm most proud of. I'm most proud of Australian Kemba Smith. Who WAS ARRESTED? Twenty four and give it a twenty four year mandatory sentence. I've been Amman mine of exit. Basically go over to the drug dealer. I mean the Fed said she neither Seoul nor use drugs but she was very attached ringleader. Who have been killed and We ran to cover stories on it and ran a couple of other stories in addition to that and Couple of years ago. She was pardoned by bill. Clinton in office and So we're real proud of that story. I'm proudest of is One of my staff members. I fortunately I feel vegetable about young since college lower. Hit a little little experience. Laurie Robinson was all right how she was on my staff and And it really shouldn't be up the whole Staffan certainly are and she's a graduate of Spelman in Atlanta and There was a allegation at Morehouse being raped. Spelman woman and only because laureate toby. She wanted to write a book about her experience. I suggested that she go back there to her alma mater right about that and then we've been home person experience with it and it was just one powerful story and those are the story. I mean a lot of store them reattached. But those are those are the real special with you on the immediate past. President of the American Society of magazine editors in the first african-american Elia and also not from New York. Right right they kinda you gotta be from New York and got to be life. Magazine's the worst newspaper in terms of diversity but They did in all fairness did let me president and it was indeed a Han and You know in fact. I'm coming from a black magazine representing the magazine industry so I was so pleased with that. Your current position as editor in chief of the National Newspaper Published Association. Give us a brief history of that organization and your responsibilities with black presses. About one hundred seventy six years old gotten around fighting against niches slavery and everything else. I have been here. Two years. Essentially is a federation of more than two hundred African American newspapers Most of them weekly and essentially what I do is provide news out of Washington and and National News as well For a member newspapers. And so we've pretty much such service. Washington bureau founders for audience. That aren't really familiar. That are not African Americans. Why has the black press particularly organization the two hundred or so Weeklies still viable in this country today. Well I wish having spent thirty three years journalism most of not into black press. I wish that the media was doing this job. And there'd be no need for the Black Press a Hispanic Women magazine but it but it is not doing. It does a terrible job and still a worse job. I think when I came to business thirty three years ago. So if you're going to get in order to be well informed you have to read from a variety of sources in the first place you know you just can't read just to Austin space when you just read just you know Dallas Weekly. Just can't you gotta read from different sources and so So would ask an American perspective gives you a different look at some of the same national issues and then he's going to be really inform. You need to reap the black newspapers and go out website. black press. Usa DOT COM

It’s Super Bowl Week
"David Tyree catch Malcolm Butler picked what do you want to force always forward to is super bowls of Jim Nagy the the senior bowl Reese's senior bowl director joins us now you're the show opens up a foreman plan Jim you know I love bringing those two losses up over the four winds because they are the two of the more historic losses we've ever seen in Super Bowl history how are your partner I'm doing great intake from young Courtney yeah that that's the worst part of Superbowl time for me now with all the highlight packages before lead up to the game always showed up to play its role and you were part of obviously yes as I mentioned to both of them before we get into the game and taking us behind the scenes what it's like for coaches scouts during Super Bowl week listless codes back to the Reese's senior bowl when you go back and look at the film and practice and the guys who really stood out give us a few names for every NFL team RB well and fell fans team is not in the Superbowl a few people that that could help their team coming up next season and I wanna drafted in April yeah it's you know we've actually been doing that the last couple days in the office that would be that you could director the game week itself I I'm walking around in and you know talking to GM's and coaches and trying to reconnect with people at an end this year we had some we took some roster hits during the week so I was trying to fill it roster holster practice so we better go back to the tape but a couple of years but a bunch of players that have stood out but dental dams to wide receiver from Baylor had a great week six six three two hundred fifteen pounds what is the right of Baylor another one Antonio Guinea gold and is another big receiver from liberty six four two twenty had a great week chase Claypool with six four two thirty really good we got a Notre Dame another deep inside of all Josh you Jay really stood out you know it's a linebacker for Michigan he can play off the ball he can play Alanis courage you can rush the passer are you sure all of that during the practice week so the cool thing was during the week this this your guys we we we we voted on our practice player the week we had that we have the players do it and I I felt like that meant a lot more to them that it came from their peers and and we really have to position group they went against the most during the week so line voted on the line no corners vote in a white out invites versus so I posted those on our on our Twitter and everything so everyone could see those entry now going back to watch the tape I think the players really got it right we love talking about quarterbacks it really is never too early to start stacking your board will who stood out to you the most in a jail it hurts is obviously the big name coming into the week but by the end of the week where do you I guess you're one through three who should we be looking at that position what are your according Jaylen with it was a big name come in a week if you the big week all week you know just from is tied to the state of Alabama with our game beautiful Beale everything it up did up in Tuscaloosa I DO and had a really strong week he really did you got better you know you got better as the week went on kind of like Daniel Jones did last year Justin Herbert what the overall practice player of the week again voted on by the players that that he was the game MVP as well so just in case a minute really he lit up every day he's got everything you need the big very intelligent death politic you got a strong arm he was accurate all week in really what he showed behind the scenes with the answer a lot of questions that people might have about the leadership and I I don't know why they were questions out there about that but the time Justin he's got a he's got a really good way about him teammates really responded to him all week we put him in a bunch of different situations where you have to show that leadership he just to be just a great kid I got a talking to dad they they did a great job with this on it it made me think yet enjoyed love would be the other one throw that grow in that mix and their direct your junior from Utah state who really talented really natural thrower you know do a great ball all week we just they were so far we've just gone through the one on one at that and a little bit of the team here at seventeen got to the game yet but but Jordan had a really strong week and then in the game entity Gordon for Washington state but the offer the player the game for his side you know he was backed up Gardner Menchu last year in Washington state if you've gotten sandlot look them up all or two and then you get the game to do just make things happen so many did that on Saturday the other quarterback group is really strong this year Jim nagging at the senior bowl director here with us on it pretty fits image on ESPN radio according Cronin infer Freddy I mean if it's Simmons and an elaborate a little bit more on Jordan love because talking to a tech coach Gary Andersen a Utah state he likened him to possibly when it comes to do the draft stock the next to Josh Alan where his stock could skyrocket during Super Bowl week DD do you agree with that do you think he had that kind of a week yes interval week but I got you here right coach any any any you know he's but he's wanted a lot of places and I think that your Jordan came into the year with a really high expectations there was a lot of media types that first round great Doug Jordan enter in sort of the league so that we you know him being a junior graduate are fortunate enough to get him and he didn't have the kind of the year that that maybe a lot of people expected at Utah state I think the no the coaching change you know at definitely had something to do with it it's it's hard it's hard runner whose game the first year that's why what Joe burrow did with Joe Brady coming in for the St Louis with you know even more impressive like I don't think Joe burrows got enough credit for that he was running a scheme for the first time but you know in Jordan I think Jordan might've been feeling the expectations of of the first round step two we don't have a chance to really talk about that when he came down to mobile last week but but the judge with the Josh our comparison it is a very good one you know Josh was the guy that statistically didn't have a great last year while making that came down to to your call and let it up but we all know how that turned out he went seventh overall so could Jordan get back up in the top ten I mean I I don't know that I mean that's that's pretty lofty but he did he did everything you could do down here you such a natural pro respond watch all week so it'll just be like you're the profits worry and up but I do think it's gonna be a starter at the next level one of my favorite assignments that we do every year at the senior bowl from ESPN will go around and ask outs kind of for their take on what they're seeing it practice and since it is Superbowl week it's always fun to hear the comparisons to guys were being you are playing in the game currently it in Harrison Bryant from Florida Atlantic one of our so you know one of our reporters ask out and he said quote he can beat George cattle two point now do you see that sort of comparison you know here so it's really good the past game it really is I mean Kittles kills really developed in a such a good blocker into get Georgia's coming out of that I will program where they used the tide and a lot of a lot of scrimmage though this from a background standpoint here isn't going to be a little bit behind for work short was coming out in any not quite as big a body of George kill but in the past can definitely you know higher than what the Mackey award for a reason because he can you know he's really good after the cat he's he's really athletic you catch the ball it is really good after the catch in which you didn't really see it after you he didn't run a whole you know he did run a a lot of it run a lot of different routes and that's what the that's what the scalp got that the that this week in mobile was with him running all those route that is going to have to do with the next level and his ability to separate get open yeah I mean I think you're the couple tied into this year's group Paris and be in one of them you know a guy Bryson Hopkins from Purdue had a great week out and drop in a small school player gate and had a great week I think I think those three guys might be the you know the first three cat up the board this year what is the deepest position group that you have observed so far you know it's probably what out in again a lot of it has to do with the junior class is really strong at the top with jury duty he Nick in the engine all from Colorado I mean there's a lot of good ones but the senior class is loaded you know we had with a guy come to mobile and it is a little banged up when he got here so we had to you know he didn't pass the physical but Brandon are you calling from Arizona state is a really explosive guy I think he's going to go in the first round and then all those names I mentioned before you know it getting including those K. J. hill mile state with the guy that was voted Platt practice clear the week from his side of it from inside of the team so then it is wide receiver crew it's all going to depend on where that run happens you know I think there's teams that are probably feel like they've got it well enough where they can wait to the third or fourth round and get a starter you know maybe hit on the next Terry McLaurin who is in the funeral last year when the third round it as you guys know how to add an unbelievable you rookie year for for the Redskins so but it you know how many first rounder that'll just be you know when they start going they start calling everyone kind of panic that it it starts taking them so depending on when their run goes it'll be interesting but there's a bunch of first round talent type receivers Mr strapped Reese's senior bowl director four time Super Bowl champion Jim Nagy here with us on ESPN radio Corning Corning ami AMP at Simmons and let's get to the Superbowl you you watch that game also as much as anybody and you scouted take us

Alabama's Nick Saban's thoughts on signing class, Bryce Young
"Are listening to nick. Sabin lie in Tuscaloosa. Misteri works her tail off and You know Everybody in this organization In recruiting Do a great job of trying to develop a kind of relationships to make people comfortable here and show them how they can be more successful in life for having been involved in the program which takes up a tremendous team so You know you know you know me. I I know that all these classes get ranked and rated and all that kind of stuff and I always say that you know how they get ranked and rated three years from now you know is really You know the the telling tale of you know how well this recruiting class really. It was and we're pleased. We were able to identify some needs early. thought we fill those needs Probably the most important thing is I think this is really a character. Quality Group of young men We don't have guys that have any issues or whatever and They worked really hard. And I've been great teammates for the teams that they played for so You know we basically have twenty players we can talk about and several others But we do you have room to continue to recruit you know several other players so You know we're we're actually excited about that as well and you know you guys got this release piece of you know. How many guys have this many stars in that many stars and this is all news to me? Because that's not really how we recruit guys we kind of evaluate You know critical factors every position recruit guys that you know Phil what we want to play their position here in Alabama Emma. And we're we're pleased with the guys that we've been able to attract y'all loaded up with that guy. It's on the defensive side of the ball guys it could be outside linebackers or defensive events for Y'all was that a big need for Y'all what do you think you got out of that group. No I definitely think that we really like That group of guys They're all very talented. They all good pass rushers. They're all long So you know losing two guys that we'RE GONNA lose this year Losing other guys that we've recruited are no longer in the program. You you know created a great need at that position. We're really pleased with The players that we have at that position because you touched on there but what were some of the biggest need you guys identified for this signing class. I think that you know defensive players You know wanted to get a couple more more guys up front. I think we did You know we're GONNA still try to add to that you know in the future Edge players which we just talked about You know we wanted to get at least Four DB's from which I think if it's not been released so far it will be by the end of the day so You know two safeties in two corner. F- you know sort of add to that group. We've been trying to play catchup since we ED. The six guys leave a couple years ago All at once four seniors in two guys garage early for the draft. So it's been a work in progress to try to develop enough depth the net group but That's that was a need We always want to at least replace. You know the the offensive Lineman so we. We've we feel good about that which I know some of it hasn't been released yet So you know wide receiver I always try to WANNA do things one year in advance knowing for sure of the future at that position in some ways Always always important to get a really quality quarterback which you know we feel really good about bryce how young I mean. The Guy was Outstanding as a high school player very mature very smart good leader played. A great program has high expectations for Himself as shuttle's what the team should accomplish And you know we felt like up that running back with something that we needed as well We still want to recruit On we got one tight end And we still would entertain you. Know another one at that position so We still have a few spots that would like to add to you. But you know that's kind of There wasn't one specific thing but you know sort of what are you going to lose versus. What are you going to gain? I'll type of approach approach. And you know how we want to try to recruit guys
Tua Tagovailoa's injury is a 'Shakespearean' tragedy
"Seven one of the biggest discussions in college football this week how should the committee be viewing Alabama given the injury to to a ton of our law what about to work individually on my lower out for the season he's had surgery for his hip injury our Paul Finebaum believes that he he being to a lost millions of dollars this past weekend I I do and if you look at what he would have gotten being the first or second player versus the middle to the bottom of the round is pretty easy to figure out we're talking anywhere from fifteen to twenty million dollars with the the one thing I would caution and I I'm married to a doctor I'm not slamming the profession but whenever you have surgery and and the technical aspects of it go well the doctors say we expect a full recovery but it doesn't mean that much you have to rehab it's a long a very difficult process even for an elite athlete so I think anyone who wants to jump to a conclusion and and say that if everything is going to be perfect they are simply missing the science of medicine so what's interesting to me about this situation as well is if this were a few years from now a guy like to might be making what hundreds of thousands if not millions in in terms of marketing his name his image his likeness how important are those changes that hopefully will be in place in a couple years when you look at a situation like this right right think about is big appearances in the two thousand and seventeen national championship game it was second and twenty six we got sacked on the first the first down play and they threw off a walk off touchdown finally when the game to win the national championship do you think that would be invaluable sitting in in in sporting goods stores around Tuscaloosa Birmingham I mean he would have made a lot of money off of that and and and now no that's all gone at least until the next to a comes along whenever the NC double a gets this situation and and and we all are going to see the accommodation but but that is a very important issue and and and for now I mean he's just a a young man that really doesn't have anything other than a lot of great memories and some serious heart breaking in in many ways this is a Shakespearean tragedy and you have a great this great player with with the amazing walk off and then you see the end in Starkville Mississippi where his his nose is bleeding in his carted off the field for the last time as a college player what effect do you think to his injury will have on other star level talented players who might say Hey do I need to sit out the rest of the season to protect my future upside this will have a chilling effect on future college athletes there isn't a college player in America who watched what we all saw Saturday and didn't start thinking about their own mortality and I think you'll start seeing it very soon here especially when we get to the ball games Ryan when when players say you know what I'm not playing in whatever weedeater bowl or whatever it is it's just not worth it maybe for the national champion maybe for the Rose Bowl but for that somebody's meaningless ball games players are not going to participate especially the elite athletes
College Football Playoffs
"We mentioned were three three and a half hours away from the College Football playoff show on. ESPN where will everyone follow so much. Interesting where Alabama is going to be because I think we know who the top three are going to be joining us on the day of once again. Always great to have south on so seth. Let's talk about the the the elephant in the Room Alabama. What what do you know about them? And what are the are the projections. Now we think that Alabama is still very much in this playoff race and they're actually not in a bad spot at all we give him the fourth best shot to reach the playoff at forty one percent. And if you're an Alabama fan what he cares if they win out. Where where do you stand and at eleven and one we put Alabama Emma at a sixty nine percent chance to get into the College Football playoff? That's according the playoff predictor and I think it really comes down to their schedule which a lot of people knock it. We're we're saying is really really not as bad as people think if you compare that to say Oklahoma schedule Alabama. We'll have three games. that are tougher than Oklahoma's toughest games and toughest office game. And if you compare the two if Alabama eleven one and Oklahoma's at twelve and one according to our numbers is about twice as hard to go eleven to one Alabama schedule as it is to go twelve and one with Oklahoma's take that boomer sooner. Listen let's get to the next most asked question on this program Ken to SEC teams get into the playoffs. Yeah absolutely in fact not only absolutely we put at fifty six fifty seven percent chance of big thing the happened over the weekend was not just the Lsu Alabama game but penn state going down. That really helps open the door for the to put two teams in so there's a few different ways. He's this could happen. I mean I think the obvious one is is the one that most people think of. LSU continues to roll they win the SEC. Alabama gets at eleven to one but there are other scenarios. What of Georgia tr? You know what if they went out and they end up winning the SEC and And be an otherwise undefeated. LSU So there's a couple different paths for the SEC. And we think that some combination of those teams teams is a decent shot. The two of them will get in. So let's talk about Ohio State no issue because I was just gonNA use myself an example ask you to psychoanalyze. I analyse me and be nice to me. I had Ohio state number one all of a sudden. I go to Tuscaloosa Saturday win and I checked the box next morning. LSU number one. Explain the differences between these two teams. Paul I'm with you so I don't have much to offer. I can't call you crazy here today. I look here's the difference right so. LSU In Ohio state or wanted to record but if you look at that doesn't tell the whole story so Lsu and average top twenty five team to be undefeated with LSU schedule. We only think there's a one percent chance an average top twenty five team could pull that off whereas for Ohio state is a sixteen percent chance they had an easier road so much more They LSU tigers have accomplished much more than Ohio state and so to me they deserve to be number one Given the win in over Alabama. Now I want to get to Clemson for a second. Because they are the forgotten team of twenty nine thousand nine. They started Out as the reigning Champs Trevor Lawrence and and you know they play these Games on Saturday night and we all go okay. Is there anything else on. Because they're so dominant ever since that Early Season Sneeze against North Carolina so I mean they have any chance of missing plus so I mean. Obviously they'd have to lose wouldn't they. Yeah they have to lose but I think that if they do you end up with Clemson really being a lot of trouble. I'm with you. I feel like I've ever even talked about Clemson. Their schedule is so easy that If I was looking at it just now from top teams perspective. You look at Clemson's schedule it's easier than like Yukon schedule or two lane. I I mean you're talking about a bunch of group of five teams. Have easier schedules. Someone you know said to me and I so I ended up looking at. HOW WOULD UCF schedule two years ago? Compared to Clemson uh-huh in this year Clemson's is harder. Don't get me wrong. It's the eightieth hardest schedule by that measure and UCS was ninety six. But you're not talking about something that's that far off and so the point is look if they went out fine. They're one of the best teams in college football but if they lose we would almost be very unlikely at that point for Clemson actually get in so we don't have wiggle room speaking of unlikely the fact that we are talking now about Baylor in Minnesota might be the longest shot of the college football season so help us understand do either one of them have a clear path to the playoffs assuming they check all the boxes I think they have a clear path in terms of winning. The problem is just that it's really unlikely. That either GONNA win Minnesota specially we give them just a one percent chance to win out. They have a tough game at Iowa before having to go Face Wisconsin and the big ten championship game so Minnesota would be an underdog at three of its final four games. Here's the good news for the GOPHERS. Though it was I was just running the numbers if they were to lose to Iowa and then went out right so then that means beating Wisconsin and going and beating probably Ohio state in the big ten championship game. They would still have a shot at twelve one which stunned me. But at twelve and one in that scenario they would have beaten Penn state. That would have been Wisconsin and they would be no Haya state so we think they actually would have a chance to get get in the problem. Of course is what I go back to what I said at the top. It's just so unlikely that they're going to be able to pull that off that they have a lot of work to do before consider them realistic contenders. Just one more thing before you go. Let's talk about Georgia and I know they have a very tough game this weekend. At Auburn Auburn they get to Atlanta. I mean there are a couple of combinations about Georgia that say lose to Auburn and then they beat. Lsu where are they. Yeah that's a really fun. Scenario right I if they do that well. We think that Georgia probably would not get in as a two loss as he C- champion. What I think we'll be wild is that you could have a situation where to SEC? Teams could get into the playoff and neither of them would be the champion in that situation because Lsu can get in an Alabama could get in given the two losses for Georgia there. We think it would just end up holding them out with any other. Good teams Can they win if they win the SEC. With one loss there are there are almost guaranteed a spot that second loss would probably be the end for them in other words. You're saying Alabama fans are GonNa Screaming War Eagle Saturday afternoon. I think they ought to be absolutely always great to have you on your next Tuesday. Thanks Paul thank you and our most of our most anticipated guests of the week breaking it down okay. We don't make this stuff up a lot of people said you're just doing roll.

"But no one else in the entire. NFL to recreate what they did to to break down that they are going to create turnovers. Give Tom Brady short field. And he's GonNa be able to score even though the offense is not great but in pressure situations. Who Do you want with the ball? All in their hand. Tom Brady who you want steaming that deepens bill ballot check. I hate to say it but I still gotta go with the pets over the field. All right so he will keep his house if they make next stop. We'll be a very big game this Sunday night cowboys Vikings. If I'm telling you right now one of those teams but not both is GonNa make the playoffs. which is how it's easy for me? It's the cowboys I think you go to the most important position. It's quarterback and I think Dak Prescott is a tier above kirk cousins. And also. I do think that the vikings defense is fantastic especially compared to the The cowboys defense. However the cowboys had the lead in their division and the easiest way to get to the playoffs is to win your division in order for the Vikings to get to the playoffs? It's going to be tough for them. The Kent Spring Bay. They're going to have to win a wildcard spot in a very very heavy and strong. NFC so I think the cowboys are more likely to get to the playoffs and probably even more likely to succeed. Succeed in the playoffs in the Vikings Huge game and then the last one if we were voting on. NFL MVP right this minute. who gets your vote? I'll it's easy. It's Lamar Jackson I think he is the MVP so far this season if you look at what they're they may not be putting up the same amount of points and some of these great all-time offenses but statistically they are as efficient as the uh-huh seven Patriots last year's chiefs the Super Bowl. The team found Winston. That's how efficient. Their offense is because they score on more than fifty percent of their drives. You don't do do that unless you're special. They don't move the ball fast. They run the ball so it's not going to be a lot of points but they're that good and they are making a defense. That is not all that good look a lot better than they are so I think Lamar Jackson deserve serve all the credit in the world for lifting team to the point that they are because they built around him in a special way. I don't mean to be looking over your shoulder but I am because a large fellow standing behind you with a quizzical. Look on his face. I see what come on over here. What what part of that He?

"Young Man. Banged on your chest. So it's going to be an amazing matchup unstoppable force in Alabama Alabama immovable object and Lsu. There's no greater game in college football than the one we'll telling me that you like Lsu and they go in there with a quarterback the likes of which they haven't seen in a long time their Joe Borough and obviously he's playing at a high level and you already told us today you think he can make himself into the first pick in the draft I love Lsu because every now and then green. You see a quarterback who has a season season that a special it transcends the norm. That's what Joe Boroughs doing. His Swag. His moxie his poise point on the sideline laughing with his teammates. It's very reminiscent. I miss it like I said earlier. Of what Cam. Newton did a couple years back. I don't just like Lsu I love Lsu because I think they have something that Alabama doesn't and right now that it factor in Auburn Alabama has it. They don't have to things. They have Nick Sabin and they have that building again. They only lost four games in that building. Eleven years you still think. Lsu Goes in there and beats that coach coach in his house in this game. Both records and history you're meant to be changed to be broken. LSU's about the break we'll find out there's the old adage is. You never get rich betting reading against Nick Sabin. We'll see by the way Saturday.

You've been in locker rooms where I'm sure that coach talking about visualize yourself doing successfully think of yourself succeeding. It can't be good to have all the ambient noise saying that is your trash. This team's not going anywhere because you don't want your teammates here and you don't want that that that seems sand and that's a tough thing to do with so allow me to weigh in right in the middle of both you guys. You're right right and you're right but the fact that matters Mitchell trubisky can very quietly goto team turn on the TV. We don't talk about this in public Intel. Everybody that I am sensitive to all the talk is going on around me. Yeah nobody wants to hear negative talk. That's the way it is. Nobody likes the criticism. But don't don't give a public that is already questioning criticizing more fodder to question you about greeting greening. Jeopardy is so exactly. You're right let let let me break this down to. We're talking about the monsters of the midway right. Okay well I think a Muslim. I'm thinking like buck. His Mike Single Teri hatcher a quarterback talk about. Oh the people making fun of me. All they're talking about. What are we talking about you? I understand what you're saying. I think Sheffi has it exactly right. Because here's the bottom line. Everyone deals with criticism differently. All of us are on one level or another in the public eye and we have been criticized at different times different things and everyone handles that a little bit differently. Some people use it as motivation. Use It as fuel. They love looking for people to criticize them others. It does defeat them a little bit but the last last thing in the world. You should do if you were Mitchell. Trubisky and you're the quarterback of the Chicago Bears Shefty. Has It exactly right. You do not go out and say publicly right now. I'm turning off all the TV's because I can't I cannot listen to Damien woody criticizing me anymore because he doesn't know what I'm going through running on the bottom line of. Espn Mitchell trubisky wants the TV's often muted criticism headlines to sceptres point. When I got the email with this quote in it I got upset because I was like damn somebody the an organization leaked this boy? You said that yourself should know better. I agree that is an example of bad judgment but I think it's okay to be like I no myself I know that this resonates with me in a bad way. Get it out. I think I report says exactly right Phil my man. I can't believe somebody Rapid Mallika. Oh you write it himself out the next time he throws him to triple coverage you say to yourself you know.

Let's start breaking it down Wisconsin at the Ohio State University what do you got in that one Ohio State winning the game I had the Jack Cone of Wisconsin has a chance of winning the game he's got to step up because obviously Ohio state can load up the box frankly they don't have to load the box against Taylor but they will and then he's GonNa play well but Jack Cohn has to get the ball out to the receivers in particular CPAS his Goto guys come back he's played well that is the matchup for Ohio state an for Wisconsin because it's going to be a picture of battle pick your choice of eight minutes doc seven in a box and we're gonNA play Action Jack over the top or nine here's my thing. JV The worst thing that ever happened to Ohio state Wisconsin losing to Illinois last week their toughest week of practice of their lives would have been this upcoming week for the Ohio State Game I'm really interested to see Wisconsin and have you fixed your mistakes again the Allow Twenty nine points Illinois they had only given up twenty nine twenty four points all season Ohio state is going to try to Loyd with Johnson former abilities Wisconsin when they win the turnover battle under their head coach the twenty eight and two when they lose it not so good so for me it's just a matter up Wisconsin fixed everything that went wrong last week so you have Ohio State or Wisconsin winning have Ohio state winning I just think that everybody thinks it'll be a blowout I think right now it's a fourteen point game it's GonNa be a lot closer than that and Wisconsin they're gonNA show now look I agree it won't be a blood Agra looking forward to that one of course remember Ohio State has won six straight in that matchup is going to be a good one over on ABC we continue to move forward. I mean listen Saturday night over on ABC or we're looking forward to this yes I would say so right we're looking at Michigan and Notre Dame that game guys going to be interesting to say the least you look at the Notre chance to make the College Football Playoff Irish basically essentially eliminated from championship competition if they lose that game so odd show you guys know game is bigger for Notre Dame right and both of you are picking Notre Dame over Michigan but if Jim Harbaugh wins this game how much this change the calculus of we think of Harbaugh as a big time coach Yo honestly unfortunately for Harbaugh it doesn't change at all I mean right now he's sitting at one in ten if not mistaken when he's the underdog again he's playing a team in Notre Dame they have everything to play for Michigan they really don't have anything to play for you're not GonNa Win big ten you're not going to college football playoffs so now you're playing for pride you're playing for the name on the back of the Jersey and for the logo on the Front of the Jersey does way to win this game all we're going to say his finally it's not like we're going to sit there and tip barn cat to the man as simple as that Oh man I'll tell them with you right man you are so right I'll add this for the drastic losses that he's had one in ten against top opponents etc he has to take a FRANKEN approach at Penn State back in two thousand ten James Franklin was on his way out he lost two games and actually got obliterated by Michigan and then suddenly on the nine game win streak and went into the Rose Bowl they lost a close when the rose bowl and that's when it turned for Penn State and James Franklin football because of the consistent wins against good opponents he beat Ohio state that's hardball it's going to have to do consistent winds one win is not enough I can't believe this coming out of my mouth of all people but I'm gonNA in Jim Harbaugh right Paul Finebaum earlier this week said Oh we can go into the yellow pages and pick a better coach come on listen it's not as if he's a horrible coach he's a good coach he's just not eight right now but get guys back up against the wall this is what I want to see what Jim Harbaugh villa we solve this right when Gus Malzahn had his back up against the wall and twenty seven and everybody's talking about Oh he's going to be out at Auburn what did they do they ended up winning the West that's how big this game is for horrible no this is the start for Bernie you're talking about what the Gus Malzahn accomplish over the course of that season this is just one game and frankly it doesn't even matter for the big ten it's it's Notre Dame Liam account but I understand where you're going like if he's going to start somewhere notre dame will be a great time to start and then continue on that success and JV all add to that point harbaugh's name and his reputation along with the reputation of Michigan vats their biggest adversary harbaugh is a good coach the problem is you're gonNA place Michigan Michigan is a great program at least they're perceived to be a great program so I'm with you burn the I think is a very good coach but when you're Michigan and Clemson Oklahoma Texas Notre Dame Penn state USC etc.. Good just isn't good enough and the last thing I'll leave you with is good is the enemy of great time for Harbaugh to be great and stop being own enemy all right we're looking forward to that especially when harbaugh makes around well basically makes in Acho tight money all right we got Saturday night aw seven thirty right over ABC Notre Dame there in the big house nineteenth ranked Michigan we got a lot more in common football live including to talk about the gentleman not playing this week high ankle sprain on that right foot it's going to mark the first time the Nick Saban era strays since two thousand seven that Alabama will have relative to my rehab it was back on the field in twelve days before the last one this one doesn't seem to be quite a serious ah the last one and it's not as planned foot to throw so hopefully in a couple of weeks we'll be able to have him back on the field now you know how capable they'll be and how close to honor percent he can get just kinda remains to be seen now of course it remains to be seen if he is hundred percent I'm going to say it for Nick Sabin Right now is not going to be one hundred percent for the game against Ellis shoe so I mean will we start here as far as being one hundred percent going forward is this how big of a concern is it for the time I think it's a huge concern but at least saving sounds if he's not gonNA throw to out there to the walls remember last year I got into it with coach d'amore onset because I'm like to what is not healthy do not rule him out there and I don't care if he's healthy enough to play he's not healthy enough to successfully play or maintain a level of health wild playing so don't throw him out there again you saw time after time it was hurt maybe it's just me having played in college having played professionally playing through injuries into watching to Olympic off the field it hurt me just to see let them get healthy that's my two cents don't rush I agree so don't rush it I'm not as concerned as you are though I'm not looking ahead towards any games besides this to Arkansas game because when you look at two throws he makes a ton of throws downfield gets a lot of time but he also makes a lot so I'm looking at Mack Jones he's GonNa step in he just has to make those easy throws man just be accurate you don't have to do anything besides the accurate get the ball out quickly right in in doing run run run run run and they blow by anybody and everybody they faced and obviously the other thing too forecast burns you talked about that Lsu game if I'm Alabama if two was not likes eighty percent I might sit him anyway because now you have a scapegoat the thing about why rolled out there and then you lose the whole scapegoat which you can keep in your back pocket that's just one more piece to the puzzle let me ask you this and even though Nick Sabin doesn't want US guys to spend a Ford Against Arkansas Listen Arkansas lost fifteen straight they're out to offensive Lineman Alabama's GonNa win this game but right now if two dozen play it's LSU's to lose in the SEC is that fair to say JV it is fairly LSU It's LSU'S SEC is L. issues to lose yes that is very fair to say because the offense is very good matter of fact the offense is so good there think a national championship appearance is now Lsu's for the taking I'm not sitting here saying they're going to win it but I think they'll run through not only Alabama not only the West obviously I think they'll win. entire SEC it fell us time meaning finally they've gotten the pieces together they've always had the players now they have the system between borough between offensive analysts Brady I think LSU roles with ease and the last thing is once you overcome the mental obstacle of beating Alabama which is something else the Lsu Tigers and why there might be some cigars actually on the field at Tiger Stadium and Jack Rabbits they're good we'll tell you why also yes glades trending yet once again on twitter find out why he should be on the next episode of Shark Tank that next on college football live Van's Ville no one's been part of more first days of work than car heart and in the same way rookies have to earning respect car heart never stops earning the respect of hardworking people like you from building rugged dear that's tougher than any other I our worst day of work to reengineering the classics to out work the presented by John Pamper.

Is there a path? Is there any path you can see for Auburn to try to find a way to win this game? You see any scenario where they can come out of here with the wind tomorrow. Yes. If an actual spaceship comes down for them, and then ducks the entire Alabama team before kick-off because really if they abducted at the end of the first quarter, I still think Alabama wolves quarter points to have won that game. But no, I think poor Auburn these Alabama they want they have every reason like they always do to annihilate Auburn, but add to it. Now, the fact that Auburn beat them last year kind of beat them up last year as well. I think if they can score one hundred points, I think they will if they can beat Auburn so badly that they force Auburn to drop football as an intercollegiate sport. I think they will. I don't think Auburn has what it takes to be able to put much of a speed bump in front of their D line is very very good. But I think that the bypass they're run around all game on Trevor let me ask you about to talk of low. I mean, you've been watching this game a long time lot of quarter. You've seen a lot of quarterbacks. What is unique about this guy? Decisiveness tony. We've seen a lot of guys that can throw the ball accurately, and he throws it accurately. Matter of fact, he throws sexually accurately. But what impresses me is that as a first year starting quarterback? He doesn't stand in the pocket and look around and try to find somebody who's opened and then and then if he doesn't recognize what he sees he waits for a while to see if it becomes more. None of he'll drop back and pick something, and it whatever it is. And that's one of the reasons that defense is can't stop it. Because he doesn't give them the chance to rally around him to get around him as a pass rush to see what the route combination isn't have safeties jumped routes. He gets the ball out quickly. And if he wants to run he.

I absolutely you've been record places where changed was was change occurred, and I, it's always difficult. And and having been here before you are not at the bidding, the state these days are different than I know everybody talks about the way it was with coach Bryan, but there were some pretty, it's pretty challenging years. Well, we have. We have great history here is a history is any program in the country university in in the country. We're also living under historical times right now, and and we, we just like we talked about earlier. We can't take that for. Ranted and just think we'll keep rolling the ball out. We'll be just fine with it. We have to continue to look and say, what is that future ahead? And that's what we've been working on with crimson standard. Greg Byrne. One of the elite athletic directors in the country. Joining us here as we are live from Tuscaloosa listening to Paul finebaum show podcast. Avery johnson. Year four like you just got here. Okay. Another day in paradise. Paul have a great time, love all the folks that I get a chance to work with here at the university. We have terrific assistant coaching staff and support staff, and I'll play his work awfully hard on the court and in the classroom. So it's just an unbelievable place to have an opportunity to serve student athletes. You had come close, but at the end of last year, it all to started to come together the the run in in Saint Louis, the win in the first round of the turnament special time it was in. That's what we talked about from day one. We were pointing towards year three in beyond. I knew it was gonna take a year or to change the culture. But year three started the yield, some results that. That we're very excited about and we have a great strategic plan in terms of recruiting, we increased our home attendants. It was loud rowdy and proud in Coleman. Coliseum. The fans gave us tremendous support and we, we're having an opportunity now to simpler the NBA like island Sexton were graduating. I was to net deletes. So we have a lot of positives about Al program right now. One thing about basketball, it takes a hiatus. Well, I don't even know if it does, but it seems like it does maybe for a week or two, but not anymore because you've got practice starting. You've got recruits on campus. You get recruits to come in here. Obviously, they know what your basketball program like, what does it mean to have them here for football weekend? It's unbelievable. People talked about, why did I decide to take a job at a football school said his Alabama. Why not? You know, we have, you know, arguably to are the greatest football coach. In history of college football, your Nick Sabin, and we have a tremendous amount of resources, and the administration has really gotten behind making basketball relevant and help us a thin to a championship level, and they've made commitments across the board. So it is great to be able to showcase Alabama on a football weekend to so many recruits in their families, and it's just a wonderful place to to have a great time this weekend. I mean, it's not like basketball players aren't interested in other things they get you don't tell them what Alabama football's all about in the great thing about it is college life. Yeah, sure. We stress academics in character in a personal responsibility in doing what's right in the community and playing at a maximum level on the cord in fighting through adversity and having great chemistry and moving the ball. But you know, two kids, you know, they gotta have some fun and just we just encourage them to do it in a right way as important as that is Colin Sexton. Now in the NBA with the Cavs went really high..

"Always wanted a great stops along the SEC tour. Tuscaloosa Alabama. This weekend, Texas AM comes in here is not the only game, but there is a lot of intrigue about this game, especially since it's the fourth game of the year. What does that mean? It means that some people are going to be watching to see what happens to Jalen hurts next week, Nick Sabin trying to clear some of those rumors up yesterday by saying. Both will continue to play look at two numbers for those of you watching on TV for those of you on radio. We're talking about comparisons to Russell Wilson and Baker Mayfield. Yes, I realize it's only three games into the season, but these are still pretty remarkable numbers. It's still even Ella bama's prohibited favorite a big game here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I think you can make a lot out of the fact that JIMBO dick, but really it's bigger than that yourself very fundamentally play with only toughness discipline with pride. I think they're obviously one of the best teams you know in our conference. So this is going to be a critical game for all the players on both teams. You're not going to give you anything you wanna have to execute make to be. This is by far the best defensive team. We played to this point, one hits overcome those things. His plate. Next plane always makes it difficult to play defense against team, like man out. Earn play on the road and hostile environment be the first time for that. We're not where we need to be yet, but we're making progress the end the night still one game. That's why we have to. So I think by now you've heard the narrative about Sabin and his former assistance. It's gone. Nick savings way will just be the weekend that ends. Odds makers don't think so. Anyway, we have time to include your phone calls. We'll spur we'll interspersed him in dispersed throughout the day eight, five, five, two, four to seven to eight five. We began with Tony in San Diego, Tony, you're the first caller, good afternoon, heinous crime bomb. How you doing today? We are doing great. Thank you for asking. Thanks for taking my call. Looks pretty toasty there and Tuscaloosa. Yeah, and I'm sure. I'm sure we'll be more all cold you weeks ago, raising concern. Some concern when we were going up against Louisville ole miss with their their talented receivers and stuff, and I'm kind of old school, you know, respect each and every opponent I feel like we have not been tested yet, and I think ADM's desensitized front, especially their defensive line is well underrated. And you know this hope that we can rise to the Asian wanted to get your thoughts on that. Listen, I, I don't think you can look past AM even though I think a lot of people are in. You can't look past them because they have accomplished something already. This year they played the number two team in the country at the time to a standoff at home. A lot of people said that was just an emotional night. That's what happens in Kyle field, but what they're what they're capable of doing. And I'm sure that concerns Nick Sabin. Consumes me as well. 'cause that tell you what am should've won that game? They throw a lot of opportunities away, but it doesn't surprise me. I mean, the JIMBO Fisher is the gun is the obviously you see the footprints of what he's doing. You can see it in recruiting their number one again and recruiting this week, but you know, we haven't been tested and you know, I'm not your typical Bama fan, some of these families and to call in, you know, the kind of investment to us. I'm on everybody can know the most famous and very humble. You know, we respect our Ponant in the fans need to get in this game, Tamar. The last time I was in Kaluga just appalled me how these kids from the phones and walking out. You know, the third quarter ballgames you know what I'm saying? Well, let me say this. I, I've been in schools all morning. I've been all over this campus. One fan base you don't have to worry about is Allah Bama fans. They'll be there tomorrow and they'll make a difference. So appreciate your call though, but this. Yeah..
