CFP number three Michigan stuns number two Ohio State 45 23 JJ McCarthy threw for 263 yards and three touchdowns and ran in another to help Michigan outscore Ohio State 28 three in the second half and approved a 12 clinching a spot in the Big Ten championship game. Job's not finished. We got so much more to do. CJ Stroud sauce for 349 yards and two touchdowns, but it was too late interceptions that sealed the buckeyes fate, Ohio State drops to 11 and one. Number one, Georgia overcame a slow start to beat Georgia Tech 37 14 and finish another undefeated regular season one number four TCU crushed Iowa state 62 14. But Michigan's decisive victory over Ohio State does offer some hope for playoff aspirants. Correspondent Mark Myers reports in USC took a giant step closer with a 38 27 win over Notre-Dame.

USC Professor Is At Center Of Controversy Over Chinese Word
"To what is going on at USC, Lawrence peck wrote about this this week. When a Professor of communications at the university attempted to educate his students about Chinese linguistic patterns, you haven't read this, this will blow your mind. This is a new story. You sure that this is new or no, it is new. Yeah. It just November 20th. Okay. Okay. I mean, there may be about something that happened before. It did, yeah. This is the writing just came out. It's about what's happening at USC over the last few years. Okay. When a Professor of communications at the university attempted to educate his students about Chinese linguistic patterns, explaining the meaning of a Chinese word that to the uneducated ear of American students sounded similar to the N word, he was reported as a racist and suspended from teaching the class. Now, do you understand what I just read to you? My dear listener, on some viewers, do you fully understand that? He was reading some Chinese words, and they sounded similar to the English N word. And he was reported as a racist. He was suspended from teaching for saying a Chinese word. Greg Patton is a professor at USC's Marshall school of business, and an expert in communication interpersonal and leadership effectiveness, whatever that means. During the fall 2020 semester, Patton taught an online class during which he spoke about the use of filler words in the speech of various languages. In order to fill a word is folks. Like would be a good one. That's a good example. So he said, if you have a lot of ums and hers, this is culturally specific. So based on your native language, like in China, the common word is that that, so in China, it might be negate negate may gay. To a native Chinese speaker, the word sounds nothing like the American racial slur,

Federal Judge Grants Trump's Request to Have a 'Special Master'
"Last couple of hours, there's been news about a special master that has now been appointed in the Trump Mar-a-Lago raid court case. Here to help us unpack this is Mike Davis from the article three project Mike, you've been terrific on all of your commentary on this. Welcome to the program. Mike, what is a special master and what is the significance of this? Story special master is someone who is appointed by a judge to assist the judge usually with the discovery matter. And judge Ken and Eileen canon from the southern districts of Florida, federal judge down there has said that she wants to appoint a special master to do the review of president Trump's rated records. The Biden Justice Department had this unprecedented unnecessary unlawful home grade of a former president who happens to be the current president's chief political enemy. They took 11,000 documents from this home raid and they went to a biased magistrate judge Bruce Reinhart, who just recused from president Trump's civil lawsuit against Hillary Clinton on June 22nd and got him to authorize this home rate, somehow his bias is clear judicial bias under 28 USC four 55 a and canon two and canon two have the judicial candidates magically disappeared over that 6 week period where his clear bias went away. He had a 2017 Facebook post bashing Trump so the Biden Justice Department went down, they judge shot for this judge, got this unprecedented home rate warrants and now judge cannon, I think, is onto them because if you look at her order where she ordered this, she said that she's going to appoint a special master. She talks about quote the swirling allegations of bias and media leaks in this case. She

Louisiana State Treasurer John Schroder Discusses the ESG Movement
"Treasure. Let's slow this down for Pittsburgh steeler fan USC Trojans out there. ESG stands for environmental social governmental. And it's policies that corporations put in place and say, we're not going to harm the environment. We're not going to invest in socially left wing antitheses. And the governmental processes of these organizations, we're going to reform ourselves that we are in step with the local app. It's just woke. ESG is short for woke. So what we're doing right now, when I was, I praised Alec yesterday because a year ago, this nobody even was talking about this yet. And those treasures have different financial obligations across the country. I handle all debt for the state. I invest billions of dollars in trust funds, so I started with what I can do and what I can control. And I started and I'm going to say this on your radio show this morning and I have not said this publicly anywhere. It would have been working on move in $600 million out of BlackRock. Because as much as they want to infringe upon Louisiana, what they want, Louisiana, why shouldn't Louisiana have the same right to pick and choose who we do business with? And look, I've been drugged through court that I can't do this. I can't do that. This coin is single sided and I don't like it. And as this ESG thing grows, it's good to see legislators and treasures sitting in the same room yesterday, talking how are we going to fight against us because it's typically when you look at the makeup of Alec and you look at the makeup of the SOF membership, you know, it's not New York, it's not New Jersey, it's not California. It's not where all the number and mass is off. So they want to stuff this stuff right down our throat. Not on the coast. It's Iowa and Ohio. Yeah, Louisiana and Mississippi. And everybody in between.
The Conference Impact of the USC and UCLA Move
"So this is happening, obviously everybody sees what's happening, which is a trend toward two big football conferences. And my first question is, if it's only too conferences, are these even conferences? I mean, it's the AFC and NFC ain't it. It's more like that, than a conference, right? Yeah. And even beyond that sort of level, right? So I guess part of what's going to have to happen with this is we're going to see the whitling away of all these schools that have been honestly not earning their keep in these major conferences, right? So the big 12 after Texas at Oklahoma left, right? All basically mid major football programs. I mean, one of those schools is one of rose bowl in the last decade, but my bad. I forgot. I hear you on that. I forgot I forgot. Sorry. I hear you on that side by that. But you look at what's left, right? There's nobody left to anchor a conference. Like you think about when they started the big 12, the expectation was that conference would be anchored by Texas, Oklahoma and Nebraska, right? Like that was the guess. Really, it was Texas and Nebraska because Oklahoma had been down at that point. All of them are gone right now. The PAC 12 now no longer, they really only had one what I would call true anchor school, which was USC. Now they don't have one of those. Like you look at the pack 12 now. That's a lot of little bitty stadiums, man. That's a lot of stadiums that people don't go to and you just lost the best recruiting territory for your whole conference. Like, that's my thing when I look at the big 12. Big 12 ain't got players no more. Even if they have schools, there are no players. Right. Well, I mean, the thing that I think about with the PEX 12, there's sort of shocking to me, is that everybody is saying that about USC and UCLA, and obviously it's right. Like you do not want to lose LA that recruiting playground, that media market. It's an irreparable blow. You probably can not recover from it. But man, we really are just saying that Arizona Arizona state. I mean, Phoenix is a top ten top 11, 12 market. Nobody cares? I mean, seriously?

"usc" Discussed on MarTech Podcast
"Going to change per channel if you start pumping more money into it. Again, it's a kind of a, it depends question, but once you scratch under the surface time for a one minute break to hear from our presenting sponsor, HubSpot. The HubSpot CRM platform combines a suite of powerful marketing tools that work seamlessly together so you and your team can deliver better experiences for your customers. You can save, reuse, and share your best performing emails with your team or use social media tools to schedule and publish updates and analyze your performance, and you can even use bot builders to create robust automated multichannel marketing campaigns. To learn how to grow better by connecting your people, your customers and your business at HubSpot dot com. All right, back to today's interview. There's also the notion of a blended cac and there is what does it cost to acquire a customer and then what is the number of customers you've acquired divided by your costs. And I'll use podcasting as an example. I am often trying to figure out how much do I have to pay to drive a download and last year we had a million and a half downloads across our network of podcasts and we spent $60,000. So, you know, we were pretty damn efficient in terms of cost per download. But if I look at the incremental downloads that we had raising from the previous year or on a month to month basis, our cost per acquisition goes up a lot. On a monthly basis, if I put in $10,000, I can expect to get 10,000 incremental downloads, my cost per acquisition for a download is a dollar. But if I look at the total number of downloads, this month we had 70,000 downloads, and I divided by that same $10,000, now I'm looking instead of a dollar, I'm looking at less than a dollar. So talk to me about the use of blended cac as opposed to costs for incremental customer. So that example is one where it sounds like it's one where you have those listeners who only learned about your podcast because of that ad you ran. But you also have a ton that they're either longtime listeners and they're always coming back. Or there's some discoverability and whatever podcast app you use and like they're searching for this topic and they find the Mars type podcast. So that's where I would try to separate it out as much as possible. In your case, it's a little challenging, but you do have that time before you were running Eddie ads. Whatever that number of downloads was. So you've got that ability to separate out that incremental difference. I think it was like the 10,000 that you talked about. So the value of that CAC number is annoying what I could change, if I want to grow. So if you say, okay, I'm at 60,000 downloads I want to get to a 100,000. You might assume, well, to get that extra 40,000, I'm going to be adding down those ads. It could be a dollar each, or maybe actually that increases because you're going to run out of that ideal customer who wants to listen to this exact podcast. So I would try to dig into that a little more. But the good thing is you could just run that experiment right now. Let's talk a little bit about ratios. One of the venture capital community metrics is looking at the balance between cost per acquisition. Your cac and your LTV. What are some of the standard metrics that you think about or I guess what are the ratios that you think about when you're evaluating a business? In terms of a cactus LTV ratio, that rule of thumb that you'll often hear is one to three or one to four in other words, spending a dollar on cac result team in three or $4 in LTV. That buffer is there. First of all, it's a rule of thumb. So it's something that it's not a long break that rule of thumb whenever you want. If your goal is market share, spend up to the customer acquisition cost to bring somebody in, that was something that famously was done by Amazon in the 90s when they were about expansion. That buffer though is there because old TV doesn't include everything. So LTV is really like a unit look. There's all those other costs that you're not contributing in LTV. So compensation or rent, things like that. So the buffer is there partly for that. The buffer is also there because a lot of the time, not always, but most of the time, you don't get all that LTV upfront. So it's typically like I spend on acquiring a customer, there is some time that goes by, and maybe I only recoup that customer acquisition cost after months pass. So sometimes when you hear that one to three, one to four ratio, people actually push back and they say, we should really be looking one to 5 or maybe higher, depending on how long the payback period is. This, again, is a place where I'd say model it out, look at that sequence of flows rather than relying a single static number. And if you understand something like time to pay back, it gives you that extra insight. There's some strategery around this, where you might say the industry standard, what we want to have is a three X multiplier for our LTV ratio. We want to make $3 for every dollar we invest. On the flip side you might be in a competitive battle and there's only one other business and you're in a turf war. And so you might want a one to one cactus LTV ratio because you're trying to pick up as many customers as you can. You know that if you can outpace your competition and become the only player in the market, then your cost per acquisition will inevitably be lower because there's no competition. So it's not always as easy as a single multiplier to try to figure out how you should evaluate your business, but there are some rule of thumbs to how the venture capital and investment community is going to think about your brand. Always something to be thinking about when you're making your spend decisions. Paul, any last words or tips of advice for marketers as they think about managing their cac and their LTV or the ratio between the two metrics. This is a topic that you can go really deep into and I'd say start with understanding your own business model and then build a model for LTV and CDC that reflects that. Once you start digging into things, you're going to find that there's a lot of value that you can unlock and it can come in some unusual ways that you might discover are pricing is wrong. And people are not as sensitive to prices we thought. We can move the price up, for example. Or this is a way that we can improve retention, which has this dramatic impact. LTV, or there's a way to encourage people to share what we do, which is going to drive down our cac. So I really just encourage people to start with and understanding of their business and then let that drive how they figure out these metrics. All right, I think that's great advice, even if it's coming from a guy from USC. Again. Again. All right, I'm giving you a hard time. I apologize. Mea culpa.

"usc" Discussed on MarTech Podcast
"Really depends on the kind of business that you have in your market. You know, like most things in marketing like most things in business, the answer it depends, not what we want to hear, but it's true in the sense that specifically with LTV, the math is relatively simple. How much money did a customer give me per order? How many orders did they have? How much did it cost me to acquire that customer and produce those order? Great. You've got an LTV. That's not complicated. But there's a lot of nuance in terms of understanding your business, understanding what's influencing your LTV, and that really means that you got to get under the hood and understand not only what segments are driving LTV, and you can get into some more customer segmentation to understand not only what your LTV is, what drives it, but also how to optimize it. And that wraps up this episode of the mar tech podcast.

"usc" Discussed on The Audible with Feldman And Mandel
"The PAC 12 has been can't get out of its well-known way for about 5 years now for many, many reasons. And there's a stigma that comes with that. And I think there's been a lot of hand wringing because not only the laughing stock, but now and not only are you missing the playoff every year, but now it's having an effect where Bryce young, DJ a young girl, CJ Stroud, you name it, are leaving the West Coast to go play at one of the programs that can make the playoff. I don't know if I can achieve those goals here on the West Coast. I got to go to the SEC. Like you said, I'm not going to go here and declare that Lincoln Riley's going to lead USC to the national championship. A lot has to go right there. But it gives them hope. It gives them credibility. It's a way to say like, hey, this is a win for the PAC 12 and for West Coast football. Frankly, they haven't had a lot of wins. Organ beating Ohio State was fun for a week. And then, you know, the buzz from that wears off pretty quickly, but USC hiring away Lincoln Riley is a kind of send shockwaves across the whole sport. Yeah, it is truly a bombshell. I mean, when I started hearing it this morning, it's just one of those things just from a reporter side of it. You're like, wow, this is like, you know, because a lot of this stuff, it's like we speculate it and I think about it, but just, you know, I mean, it's just kind of a little bit of a surreal thing. And we'll see how it's gonna work out. I mean, he had Oklahoma getting closer, but they weren't, you know, this was not like this year was a great year for them, right? And then we saw them struggling and everything like that. And he had to make the quarterback change. And now, how does he remake USC? And where does Oklahoma go? He and her because joke is Tagliani's been there AD forever has really only ever had to make one to one coaching search, the one that led to bob stoops. You know, he stayed for 16 years, I believe, 17 years, and then when he decided to retire, Lincoln Riley was just sitting right there. I don't think there's anybody on that current staff that you would say, let's promote him and he's the obvious choice to be the head coach. I have to actually go out and hire somebody. Yeah, look, and it's a really good job. I think it's going to be interesting to see how does how does Lincoln Lincoln ride has a loaded 2023 class as you mentioned, one of the top players is a quarterback from California. Are those guys fair game now? It's always awkward as a coach recruit. The guys he had committed someplace else. It's almost taboo. I don't know how that's going to work. Man, you know, like I said, it is an exciting day for USC. It is an exciting day for the PAC 12, especially like this couldn't have played out much better if you are if you are a USC because all you heard was rumors about Scott wood or at an LSU and you all this faulty stuff about what was going to happen with Lincoln. And then Lincoln on the night before, says, I'm not going to be the next head coach then. And this one like, I don't know, less than, I don't know. 16 hours later, look where he's going. I mean, huge. Huge huge deal. Well, bedlam is one of the games that we're going to be talking about as we now have turned to our regularly scheduled programming. I'm Stewart mandel, joined as always by Bruce Feldman for what should be a really fun episode coming off of a Saturday that Bruce is going to rank up there with some of the most memorable Saturdays I can remember watching college football, especially rivalry weekend. You know, we've had years where you'll always remember where you were during the kick 6 or during the cam iron bowl or you know, various other games. But to have back to back to back, Michigan, upsetting Ohio State and ending a ten year drought. An iron bowl where Bryce young leads Alabama 97 yards to send the game to overtime when they were losing ten to three, and a bedlam that lives up to its nickname and truly was a chaotic and crazy down to the wire game in Oklahoma state prevails with this playoff hopes intact. I just enjoyed the heck out of it. What about you? I did too. I thought it was an amazing day. I'll be honest, I did not expect the iron bowl to play out the way it did. Here I am thinking, oh man, that was quite a rat Nick Saban went on. His team is going to come out going a 180 miles an hour and give credit to Derek mason and auburn. Their defense really, really got after Bryce young and that that turned into drama I did not expect. But what it really felt like take the arm ball out of it was a day for kind of slaying dragons, right? We saw that in bedlam and then look, let's cut to the chase here. You have been you have been the most down on Jim Harbaugh among national media, like that's not like that's not either pro like Ohio State or whatever. But you have really been down on them for a guy who did an amazing job at Stanford, did an amazing job with a forty-niners. And then got to Michigan. And it was like he turned Michigan around. He could not beat Ohio State, but you know, and I'll be honest. I think they're improved. I don't know if they're improved enough to beat the buckeyes. And they were the much more physical team, and I felt like this very much felt like a Stanford kind of win back in those days where they were super physical. They were well coached on defense. I think you and all of us have to give Jim Harbaugh a lot of credit for retooling his staff. He went with younger coaches. The Josh gad is higher has proven to be a very good one. The Mike McDonald hire, he hired Mike McDonald. Nobody knew who he was other than maybe die hard ravens fans and people who are like know the minutia of the Georgia staff. And that hire was really good. And we saw Hassan Hoskins run wild. We saw Aidan Hutchinson, especially be a dominant force. So what do you have to say for yourself about this Michigan performance and Jim Harbaugh? I know the listeners have been waiting for me to eat crow, so I will go ahead and eat crow. He could not have prud me more wrong. The reason, you know, a guy, I've said it many times. I fully believed he was a home run higher and he was going to lead them to I thought it was going to be a woody bow type situation between him and urban. And it was so one sided and really is the 2018 game where Michigan went in the better team having had the better season and lost 62 39 where I was like, wow, something's really wrong here. I don't know that he's gonna be the guy to pull this off. And then nothing really if anything they went in the wrong direction, the two seasons after that. I didn't see it coming. I don't believe, you know, if there's a Michigan fan out there listening and saying, I fully expected us to be 11 and one and going into the Big Ten title game playing for a playoff spot. I don't believe them. But.

"You can do jump off for a day or you can do something else. Oh wait a minute. Wait i like it. I like the idea but mace we. When did we do when we brought in a group listeners christian was ex military right was it was interns that. Turn stay where we brought. We had all those guys come in and they all knocked it out of the park. Yes maybe but. I think what i think. Would bergman suggesting is let somebody do jump ball if they get a mason in ireland tattoo. I do that in a heartbeat. You don't even or something else. I figure out something of doing fast track. I say yes if you get a mason in ireland tattoo. I wanted to do it. You gotta you gotta send us a visual evidence. You get to come in and do faster all you. Don't get the concert. You get to come in and do jump join the phone. You might have to do over the phone because a pandemic we will make you a star if you're gonna mason and ireland. Yeah why not and by the way that guy who who did it who got the mason in ireland tattoo took. It really seriously did his homework. We've actually brought him in twice. He's didn't we. Hook up with brian long dan and see what he's doing but we did hook them up with a radio station down in san diego.

Career could win announcer tomorrow by the way where he missed the postseason. While you're getting ahead of yourself. John he missed the postseason one time and it came last year. I know i was hoping the lakers will pick them up at some point. I think a lot of laker fans were the what happens to read post career. Was he good enough shooter to be hall of famer. Or where do you put his career and what he what does he do next. Not a hall of famer. Because i always think go with your gut. My gut doesn't say. Jj ready to the hall of fame does it for you know i don't even know of. Jj was ever an all star and think somebody you'd have to be an all certainly in swansea i his career averages twelve point eight points per greg. I was podcast. I think he's a natural to go to tnt or espn or even be a game analyst. He's very good on his podcast on his retirement. Announcement yeah. He had a great retirement announcement. He's he's that guy. So i would think you'll you'll see him in some type of broadcasting role moving forward. Yeah although not a hall of famer. He was a hell of a shooter. He's a hell of a shooter in his career. He played was in the nba finals against the lakers. In two thousand nine when he played for landau the lakers won that series. So last night was a weird night. There was no dodger game in the monday night game ended pretty early early enough that i had some time before going to bed. I was looking for someone to in. I'm going to be honest.

"Get a shot at a million bucks. I don't you got it. I got an email today from amandus saying that. We're not making a big enough deal about million dollar mondays. I think she's probably right. We we used to give away crap when i started and now we're giving away a million dollar in question was why aren't you guys making a bigger deal out of that and i think she's right. We do need to make a bigger deal out of it. I think that explained maze. How people can win a million bucks. Because it's it's really anybody could do it. You need to get a little lucky. Yeah it's like you don't have to be like a jeopardy champion to win the million bucks. It's not it's not that intellectually hard. Yeah gotta just be. You need a swag.

Every winner will give us their prediction of the two super bowl teams and the final score. And if you nail that you get a million bucks for some you look at. It is fairly easy. I think for a lot of people to pick to super bowl teams like i'm on rams kansas city. Some people might be on tampa bay kansas city. Some people might be on rams bills. Whatever that is. That's i personally am on. Raiders versus raiders. They're so good that the nfl's gonna make an exception and let them represent both conferences on rams chiefs and then the score is just the scores like plan the boxes the squares on super bowl sunday.

You mentioned john about you know where you were at when you first heard this album i this goes back to like my very first memory of music like the very very first memory of music. Was this album that my dad would constantly play Pro gems ten I was born in ninety one. So that that kind of busted the the seattle scene. You're around bag time exactly and it. It always is to this day. It just makes me think about my dad. Most importantly i you know You know that's kind of like our little little connection that he got into heavy metal music. Grunge music alternative rock. So you know to this. They wanna think about that. Just take me back to you. Know being a little too three year old just hearing you know songs like alive and even flow and jeremy and just the start of that that grunge scene you know pearl jam. Pain is my favorite game from start. Richard one more thing. Who do you like boxer rams on sunday. Let's say go raiders. May that's what. I'm talking about guys. That's what i'm talking about.

I'm so excited for that game by the way i it's it's the showcase game of the week. Yeah it is. You mentioned it earlier. Sports illustrated has their power rankings. And i follow him every week. This week tampa bay's one in the rams are to. I can't remember the last time one played to in their power rankings. No no and here's what here's what they say. By the way this is written by mitch goldrich the power rankings. He says rams were preseason. Darlings of many corners of the internet including the money moaning quarterback staff predictions in the early return. Turns have shown that yes matthew stafford. Sean mcveigh get along quite nicely. Last week connor or put the rams number one in this very space will know much more about the rams team after this three-game stretch including the bucks cardinals and seahawks. But for now. I see a contender that i expect to get better. As the season goes along now the defense is going to be tested. I think it's like eight games in a row. The tampa has scored thirty or more points. Yeah i think. They're less score thirty. But i think the rams can score with them me too. I think it's going to be a high scoring game. I think it's going to be like thirty eight thirty five. So we'll see who has thirty eight. Who has the thirty five here is fat in. La hey fat seven point. what's up man. So you know a couple of things you know. I'm a. I'm one of the only detroit. Lions fans here in la. Oh god bless you sir. Very sorry well. Well i just guys. There's no there's no Bad blood i mean. Wish very sanders would've left and went and tried to get a ring. You know what. I mean staff you know. What do you think you're lions fan all those years. What do you think stafford. That was great. He's a baller. But i mean book we had barry sanders grace running back ever calvin johnson best wide receiver and stafford. I mean he's a class act and it's good let the guy go get a ring you know i mean rather than suffer like i do every sunday your life and may i'm from t- town babies so it's all about the mullet i hear your baby.

I was in college and i said you know what i'm going to try my hand at movie production so in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. I moved to la and i was looking for production jobs. And i got a couple. I got a couple of really good production jobs. But i wanted to be on radio in. La on morning there was a guy named rick dees who was the morning guy at kiss. Fm it's now like ryan seacrest. So he was the equivalent of ryan. Seacrest and i bought a dozen donuts. And i put my audition tape in the donuts. And i left it out front their door. That's how desperate i was. La radio you left it under ricky's door at the radio station exactly at rick dees at the front door of kiss fm. I left a dozen donuts with my audition tape. Did it work.

"What a game on wouldn't be wouldn't you be bent if you're lions fan. You basically gave up. Matthew stafford for jared goff well the organization so i don't know how watching matthew stafford now. I don't know how it's possible that the lions were that bad this long. You look what he's done to the rams offense he's transformed we'll we'll get back to that Joining us right now is right neighbor and from. Us and football dot com. Hey ryen what's going on. Hey so the question we just asked. If you had no choice you have to either be bald or have a mullet for the rest of your life. Which one would you choose. My head probably weird ship. I'm goal it. I had that in college. You know many years ago rated make a comeback. Okay so we got a bunch of stuff we want to get into with you. Bullets start here. Who plays quarterback this week for usc a great question because last night we heard from dante williams and Yeah it seems like it's going to be up in the air. We know with that next rain he supposed to practice this week. And we're gonna find out today when we go to practice but Last night we also heard from trojans live in dante looms that jackson his day to day right now so probably won't be practicing. Go out there today. Probably could be off the other true freshman that we saw one snap from In the game against washington state. So we'll go to practice this afternoon and find out. But i could be anyone. Come this outer. Let's say injury aside. Because i got a lot of usc friends Sodas so does john. I don't know anybody who doesn't want jackson dark. I mean if if both are healthy. I got keaton. Slovenia has done a great job. But jackson dr adds a new dimension. I just saw some fire from that team when he was out there. I think he's got to be the starter if he's healthy. What do you think yeah. That's a very popular sentiment. May because you know at the you know in sports college sports. Nfl the backup quarterback is pretty popular in. Jackson certainly has and because he adds that element of being able to run know he can take off where the speed and when play breaks down similar to what we saw from sam darnold when maybe the offensive scheme wasn't the best but sam darnold could make something happen and it looks like jackson dart has some of those similar features. But i would say i mean. I don't know if you wanna get. Wally pipped in this situation. Peace-loving has done some really good things for usc. And i think if you know he got to play against washington state the entire game and didn't get hurt. You probably see some similar numbers from him too so i would be a little cautious of just going right into Jackson on this one. Because you know keaton's slowest has done a lot of good stuff but from what we heard from dante williams. They wanted to play a little bit. More jackson dark. They wanted to put some packages in for him. Short yardage situations goal line. Things like that. So that tells me don't they. Williams is definitely high on darts. So if it's close make you might be right. We might be seeing the The jackson era begin. Well why we're taking. Ryan abraham from usc football dot com ryan. What has happened to slow. This preseason all pac twelve a lot of people thought he was on the nfl's radar based on what he had done previously at usc. Is this drop off completely. Unexpected is not really a drop off in just dart. Had that one monster game and everybody's forgetting about slow visser what what happened to slow this. No it's a great question again. I feel like we've seen this happen at usc. Lot quarterbacking regress after their first year. Even like sam darnold did After that freshman seen we saw dr. I mean we saw service in twenty nineteen. Just tear it up in a few four hundred games Did really well last year. The you know statistics weren't quite there and the ball. That looked like it was coming out of hand as clean it. Looks like he's throwing a cleaner ball overall guys. It just seemed like the offense wasn't quite working now were correspondence to You know having williams coming in and making a few changes and just kind of having a new focus but it didn't even look like the air raid through the last couple of games. They use a lot of two tight. End sets either trying to run the football nor it just didn't seem like something would wasn't something wasn't working and it's gonna be interesting to see. Dr ended up starting on saturday. Whoever it is if they're able to keep that going and it more of the offense was tweaked a little bit. It was the quarterback. So i think all that still kind of up in the air but i i like the way i was playing better through the first couple of games as opposed to what we saw last year. Just throwing the football better but to me offense itself. Just look a little bit me. Yeah there's no flow to the offense. I just felt the there was on saturday. There wasn't in the stanford game. And i didn't see it in the san jose state game. Either i didn't think there was any flow. Any identity the offense and was kind of all over the place really wasn't the air it like. You said it was too tight. End sets so now. We're shifting over to the coaching search. As as you know there is great speculation in the lands about who might be the next head coach at usc. What's what's the sentiment from fans that you're hearing from. What kind of guy do they want. I mean it's all over the place. And we've seen usc over the years make really bad decisions when it comes to this kind of stuff you know from director. Just hiring former football players to more lazy. Kind of hires familiar hires For head coaches. And i think for usc fans you have to have some confidence that mike bone come. Didn't hear him and brandon sauce have know what they're doing and they're going to use the entire. You know as much of the time they have available to them to kind of everyone out and go through the process interview people and actually do analysis on these guys and see who would be the actual best fit to be. Us's next head coach. I mean you. Start with dante williams. He's already there and he's gonna start building his resume over the next few games. And then you go out through Everywhere in college football outside of cultural. Nfl wherever you gotta go. I think it's going to be a better process. And just the way we found out about what we didn't find out about play on being fired last week. It was just over a week ago. The fact that they were able to keep that in house. I think it just shows you. It's much more of buttoned-down athletic department right now than it was before. But you know. I like names out there. Like luke fickle from cincinnati who mike bone already hired james franklin at penn state and not campbell's. Great job i stay. I think there's some really good proven. College ties ryan. What about guys with nfl ties. I mean i'm. I'm okay with it. I'd rather see someone that has. College experience You know we're like bill o'brien who was Nfl head coach. but he's now alabama. That's a name. That's come up before. But you know someone like you know i mean anyone that's just like a nfl. Eric enemy anyone. That's a the nfl coordinator. I think it's a pretty big jump to go and become coach. If you don't have that kind of college. I completely agree with you ryan. We've been debating that around here. I'm going to give you some names. I just want you to tell me. Do they get considered. Do they get a phone. Call all right mason poop. Who's a lot of these names. You tell me ryan if these people get a call okay. Ready for lane kiffin. I don't think. I don't think he'll get a call just because the athletic department knows that they're kind of failings for before so i got a call. Okay dabo swinney. I mean that's such a pipe dream kind of thing like it's someone that you could channel. But that's i mean he he's someone you should want it consider but for him to leave clemson. I think would be nearly impossible so it probably probably wouldn't bother calling someone they would. They would definitely like juice if they found out he had some kind of interest. I right how about this one. Pete carroll he's already come out and said no I i mean this. he's looking at seventies now right. Yeah probably yeah. I think they were probably stay away from like the old kept your recycling people so i think even though he would probably kill it still I think they've kind of stay away from the by the way we've always go back to these guys with With pete carroll ties. Somebody called in last week. And said i don't even want anybody who's ever had dinner with pete carroll to actually fair thing to say ryan you know why i mean. There are people that hate that fraternity all right. How about mario crystal ball. I think he's someone that you would have to consider that win. It at higher state was was oppressive. He's recruiting the hell out of southern california. But i would say. There's a lot of animosity between the two programs right now. So my guess is it probably wouldn't happen. I think some of the dishes definitely.

"That was his answer. No wasn't really yeah. I'll try and get the exact word. That is unbelievable so he. I've never heard an answer like that. He wants to drive the price of the two schools right because he thought. Hey why would i. Why would i say no. Why would i say. I'm not going. Ab na a. always be end. Negotiating always be negotiating. Yeah that's a smart. That's an interesting play for james franklin. Yeah and so. The urban meyer right. Yeah well and everybody's saying. I think it's insane to think. Urban meyer after one jacksonville. Yeah i don't. I don't think he's the guy i don't think he's he's gonna leave any Momo thinks he's going to be one in sixteen he he very well could to in two hundred three and fourteen whatever it is. He's not used to losing. He can't go out and get the top recruit anymore. He's got a salary cap mean. I'm sure it's going to be frustrating for him. But i gotta believe it would be an embarrassment. I think a blotch on his legacy if he leaves after one year. I don't think that's a real thing at all. And by the way. I should say i don't know if he if franklin said that specifically an answer to the job or if he just said it previously in his career somebody may be attributing something that he has said but didn't say recently. I'm not sure. I'm i'm trying to find right now. Okay got it all right. What's the latest here on the giants. In in the padres. Were store one or one. Four one padres in the bottom. The sixers a pitching change for the padres. They're bringing in daniel hudson to pitch down in hudson. Pretty good great huge matchup. Were covering it for you. We are one and a half games behind the giants. Now what do you think the odds are. This goes right down the stretch. It's decided on the last day of the season plausible. I think it's totally possible. I mean this is a real pennant race. And i was wrong about this. I said the padres would finish. Second probably be about ten games out when it was all over now. It's giants with the lead. The division nobody saw the giants coming in fact the pagoda projections which i often refer to the pagoda projections. Come out every spring. They had. The giants went in sixty nine games in here. They are on pace for over. One hundred wins foreign zaid. Bin took andrew friedman's bagga magic magic dust and he sprinkling it everywhere. He's found a way to get something out of his old guys. He's found really like four guys who've made a difference pitching staff guys. That were sort of cast-offs like desk glossman. Along with a young guy like logan web you found a way to do it. And i think it may go down as as one of the great chases and there have been a lot of them between the giants and dodgers one of the great chases pennant races. That we've seen in our well. Certainly we've seen in our lifetimes right and in one of these themes that has won one hundred games is go out in the first round. Yeah but getting back to franklin he in twenty twenty. He signed a new six year contract. His third at penn state that guarantees him thirty eight million. It includes four million dollars. Buyout in twenty twenty one this year so you can get them if they pay the four million dollar buyout and usc they've got that money right now. Money should not be an excuse for anything with usc. You've got the dough you've got the donors. You've you've got the resources. There's no reason why anybody should say. Hey that's too much for that guy. They should be able to get and you know the other thing is. They're playing this weekend. We're gonna talk to steve physic- defense here with her gambling. Hit Coming up for you in about ten minutes or so. I actually love this weekend. I mean i think the the interim guy in this case. It's it's dante williams. The interim guy obviously Often gives teams a boost and the schedule is actually pretty easy from this point forward. They got a game at notre dame and they got a game against ucla at the end of the season at the coliseum. Oh it's a whole new world. You guys are so excited about that. I'll take fresno state plus the points. I was just going to say. I think that's a smart pet by you. i think fresno it's better i don't think. Ucla should be an eleven and a half point favorite over prisoners. And he said he's gonna win that game but i don't think they're gonna win by double digits that game's going to be really close. Yeah me too. What do you think bergman i. I'm with you guys. It's not gonna be that close. They put like fifty some points last week against nobody but they also beat oregon two weeks ago so this isn't going to be easy by any means no not going to be easy. Love the points to many points. And what do you think what what is. What are your expectations for usc. The rest of the season. I mean i'm looking at the schedule right here loss. What do you mean loss when you talk about loss loss. Yeah sure plenty of losses. I think you see might how many games they have left. They have like nine left. I think the seven yeah. Seven two seventy seven. Three loss to notre dame loss at notre dame lost lucille. They'll they'll lose to notre dame and they'll be one more in there like maybe at washington state. You know something with someone you don't expect but i hope they don't if they run the table if they do something like nine one or ten and now that they don't give me no way in hell running the table and wins the rosebowl. Thank you very much. You are lead recruiter. In mario cristobal is here to take over. Yeah that's what they said about clay. Yeah it's a whole new world man as as you as ucla has a whole new world. There is no way. Usc would go. And take the interim title. Off of dante williams. No matter what happens here all right let me throw these neighboring mccullough of the la times has listed besides franklin has listed seven other active head coaches as possibilities. Just tell me interested or not okay. Utah's kyle wittingham would be. I just don't like it as a higher kentucky's mark stoops not not not the name. You need rutgers. Greg xiang oh not too much baggage now. Szanto cincinnati's luke fickle. Yeah i know this is. This is the hot name. I bone hired him in cincinnati. I don't think he's big enough to to run. Usc minnesota's pj flick. Yeah that name has come up a lot again. Not not one of my favorite picks i would states met campbell. This guy is a possibility. He is a bad ass. Matt campbell was a bad ass. I would say that guy should be on the list busting colleges jeff half li no. No no no no not a big enough name narratives. Ucla it's a whole new world. Greg wanted chip..

"Byu does the rest of the season they certainly had a great win this past weekend over utah because as great as a season as they had last year as we know it. A lot of those wins came against sunbelt and whatnot teams. They're playing you know they've already beaten two pac twelve teams. They've got another big game this week against asu if they have a really good season this year against that schedule. A after losing. Zach wilson. i think it means he's a heck of a coach and do know who they play late in the year by the wagging. Sc there you go into the right. Yeah i don't know if you'd wanna leave because obviously as you well know. Byu is now better positioned with going to the big twelve but he knows the league and his teams play really hard. Anybody who's around kalani talk comes away very impressed and likes him a lot and feels like man that That guy that guy's got something to him. We've talked a lot in the last week. About what an amazing twenty four forty eight hours. Byu had their by getting the big twelve inviting them beating utah. They're not gonna let you back on the radio in that state. Are they after us talking about this. No no no no. I'm you said you don't know if he's going. If kalani Actually gets offered the job and turns it down to stay at byu than byu is having.

"Some new documents that were turned over and the degree to which urban seemed either completely oblivious or just didn't care about The woman who was the a domestic abuse victim in that story. I just think it'd be very hard for the president of a school. That is trying to you. Know change its image To justify that hiring. I think it. I think it's good for them if if that is the case if we believe that's her stance than it is probably good for them that he did take the jaguars job last year that he's not still sitting at fox because if he was that's the only name anyone there would be. They would be spending the entire three months. Waiting for the season ends. we can get urban meyer. And if she or just. The administration general had no interest in him. It would be very uncomfortable. So at least he's got a job he's occupied and people can really turn their attention other names. Okay one. you're hearing a lot right now. In light of last weekend's big win over ohio. State mario cristobal. Let's start with with one big thing of all the guys we're gonna talk about. He has the biggest buyout. It's nine million dollars. It goes down to six point. Five million In the middle of january. But he's not going to wait till the middle of january to hire the coach towards. Let's talk with nine million. They were already having to pay houghton ten million and that doesn't even get into the fact of rest of the staff and the new guy what he's going to get paid I don't think that is a deal. Breaker mario cristobal is foreign one against top ten opponents in his last five games big games. He's beaten. usc. He's beaten usc a lot in southern california for top recruits. Those are significant things and as you mentioned he's coming off the biggest win of the season suss far where they go in without cave on tiptoe without couple other other starters on defense and they whip ohio state out coach him right so in columbus that his name is really hot. I know there's some influential. Usc people who really want mario cristobal for all those reasons I also know this crystal ball is very excited. Not just about this team. He thinks they're going to be great. Twenty twenty two and in twenty twenty three The question is as well as recruited there. There's way more recruits in your backyard. If you're the head coach at usc people have won national titles at usc. They've come close at oregon. Chip kelly came close. More helfferich came close. Even mike bellotti. Actually wasn't that far off from plan for national title My guess is it would be tough to get him to leave. Like i thought of mario was gonna leave oregon. It would actually be for miami because it's home not because u m could pay him more right because it can't but i think there is a manny diaz is not exactly on solid ground. He is not he is not and when when the job came open a couple years ago and mark richt laughed. Mario's buyout was in the double digits and the timing was really bad. He was just about to coach his team in a bowl game like the next day it was the i don't know what we're calling it. The foster farms red box or whatever. It was at the time they were playing michigan. State timing was it was it was kind of a nonstarter. Miami had to move fast and they ended up hiring manny diaz. We'd been there I don't know like. I don't think it's a i don't think it's a it's a slam dunk. That he would take it if he was offered it. I also don't think it's like oh. There's no way mario cristobal. Consider it because because things are. Oregon is the same level job. I mean i think he knows the recruiting aspects of it. Yes he's recruited really well going into southern california one of the reasons why he is one of the reasons why he's been able to get so many good players out of southern. California is because us's coaches on the hot seat for three years. If james franklin or somebody else you know very comparable or close to that is the head coach at usc. It's going to be a lot harder to get players out of there than it is with klay hilton being on the hot seat for long first of all. How dare you crap. On the red box. Bullock that mario cristobal in his own press conference after the big win the other day without without primes answering a question i asked him but without prompting brought up that famous seven to six game. You and i are both there for it. against michigan state. And how proud they were of the way they won that game and that you can basically draw direct line from that game. All the way up to saturday's game in terms of how he built. I'm just glad morio. And the oregon ducks in their enthusiasm did not take down the stage because me and the red box the ceo would have gone down with the stage at that point to the poor red box bowl or what was the red box will has been canceled again. This year. So there will be no san francisco bowl game here for the second straight year. Anyway yeah are cristobal honestly I know he's gone. If no other reason you gotta entertain it. Because i mean by the time it's all said on the guy's gonna be able to buy a new house with the with the leverage you'll have But i'm looking at it from his shoes. Great ongoing what do i need. Usc for i. I've got a program. Recruited well enough. That i've got now got my program in a place where we can go be one of the best teams in the country on the road. We can be in playoff contention I think a lot of people feel like maybe a year away from being national title contention. Why go to a place that you know. Everybody just assumes has that potential. I think they have that potential. But it's been a long time since someone actually did it and in fact peak arrow is the only national championship coach. There in the last forty years But he he's a very more legitimate candidate than the ones we mentioned before back to the podcast in a second but first a word about peleton i have one. I love it.

"Welcome to the audible presented by trader. Joe's i'm stewart. Mandel joined as always by bruce feldman for our second episode of the week. Usually you feel like we just go straight from the games on saturday to next weekend's games but Everything changed bruce on monday. Usc firing clay helton just two games into the season. We had a lotta listeners. At least cited tweet and say wow guys i was just listening to you. Talk about whether or not he might get fired and he just got fired I guess maybe you. And i were not as surprised as some people that this would happen when it did. I don't know how you couldn't be surprised. He's been on the hot seat for three years and they got whipped at home by stanford team that everybody thinks is pretty mediocre. That looked awful the week before everybody. You know we talked about this. The other day everybody flocked from the coliseum. You know they were ripping the band aid off. That's about it. It didn't shock me at all. I just i think if you're not following it closely now. Usc fan you might not realize how dire the situation had gotten relive the klay Too much but i you know. I think it was robbery. So who share a screen. Shot of Mike boni a d did a like a facebook live or In some sort of live jets there. It's their trojan live. Show that they do they do on monday nights. Okay and so you can see the user comments scrolling through and it was like a celebration You know were dancing on the guy's grave. And i realized that you know what in you had made the point right like if they kept him there are going to be all these empty seats usually when a school fires a coach in the middle of the season. You're kinda punting on that season right until he can get the next coach not hear. These fans are more energized for the season now than they were two weeks ago like they don't. We don't even know. If dante williams the intercultural being good is just something new to be excited about instead of being stuck in this three year purgatory where everybody knew. This would end at some point. So obviously the i don't know if you want to say downside but the the effect of firing a coach two weeks season if we're probably going to get tweets rumors every day for the next three months about who the next. Usc coach is going to be Since monday we've seen Adam schefter tweet that. nfl sources. Believe eric enemy will become a candidate. We've seen urban meyer flat out get asked at his press conference whether he might leave the jaguars for usc. He shot that down so the question is of all the names that are being thrown about their which ones are real possibilities. And which ones aren't so. I'm gonna throw a few names at you. Let's start right with the one that That shafter put out there eric. B enemy chief offensive coordinator heard this from. Somebody dialed in on the nfl front on monday. Night my skepticism. On it was the timing would be awkward because he he coaches for a team that has super bowl aspirations. And we know there's an early signing period and it's not what it was in terms of the early signing period is a much different dynamic than it was a couple years ago on timing especially for a program that has fired a coach in early september He has no head coaching experience. And there's this part of. It is the usc ad mike bone. He knows eric the enemy pretty well from his time at colorado I'm not convinced. Mike bone would go first time head coach. Also i don't know about his feelings on eric enemy as i'm seeing is he's going to be the face of the program so i'm a little skeptical of eric beyond a me. Being the head coach at usc eric. Bana should be nfl. Head coach. she prices have been Nfl coach already. But yeah mike was the ad. When john embree became the head coach airbnb was on the staff and they fired after two disastrous season. So hard to picture him then turning around and making him the head coach of one of the most prestigious programs in the country urban meyer. This one's a wild one to me. Where with urban he is the most unpredictable figure in coaching. Because how he feels about something today could change in a one eighty tomorrow like this is the same guy who retired at florida and then a day later walked it back in such a staggering mind boggling function because they had good practice or he was like you know it was just so bizarre some of the stuff with urban. Now here's the things i i do believe. I don't think urban and his wife. I don't think they wanna live in los angeles fulltime. I don't think he wants to jump into that. He's with the jaguars. Now i think how he feels now. Look they got whipped by what a lot of people think. It was the worst team in the nfl. The houston texans and the opener. If he's one in eight or if he's only nine or owen six. I'm not sure if he's going to be looking at the. Nfl like hard to predict how that kind of that kind of attrition is going to affect him. I know this though last year he could have been a head coach at texas which is a good job in a conference. I think he probably thought i can dominate there. But he was looking at the specter of nfl. I don't think he felt like being a head coach in college. Football was that attractive to him. I don't know if if going to the nfl and getting his butt kicked every week would change his purview of that. My guess is right now. There's no chance of him. You know right now. He sees as no chance. I want to be there even if that okay. So let's say i agree with you. But let's say that they go one in fifteen in at the end of the season or towards the nfc's nervous. I made a huge mistake. This is not. I'm not cut out for this. Or i don't like it. I want back in college and he calls up. Usc or is agent calls up. Usc are we sure. Usc as great a college coaches urban was three national. Titles are reassure usc which has had its sheriff scandals over the last few years is would want to make an offer to a coach who has had quite a few scandals under his watch. I think that is a very valid point to raise from what i was told a couple of years ago. Carol for the president of usc did not want to touch urban meyer as part of that process when you were clamoring for him when he was working here out here in los angeles for fox and he was not coaching a team that they were like. Oh this is a no brainer. She did not want anything to do with him as the face of the program. Now as you said we're not just talking about scandals. Athletic department wise. We're not talking about the aunt becky scan. We're talking about some other stuff that was really ugly sexual assault scandals and some really bad things that were going on university wide. The idea that usc would then turn around and higher urban meyer as the most public higher for carol fault i think is something she knew. That would be really bad. Pr because as you said it. Wasn't that far removed from the zac. Smith scandal that happened on urban meyer. Watch and remember. Urban did did get suspended for three games from that. So you know has time changed that. I'm not so sure it has. Carol fault is still in charge. I don't know if i see that direct them going in that direction even urban wanted to go in that direction there was actually a long bell. Well reported story on the site defector this week by diana moskovitz revisiting. The courtney smith zac smith ohio state situation most of which if you follow it at the time you you obviously know a lot of that but there were some new details..
"usc" Discussed on The Right Time with Bomani Jones
"Usc africa. What year was they played them. Granted their thing was already a little wobbly. But you know they got caught out in that same situation they got beat down a jerry world and now they got around to fire in their head coach and people started breaking out the hey what about urban meyer to come to this job. We lay out all the reasons there ever. Meyer is not going to get that job number one being an athletic director. Maybe does that a university president eddie school that is up under a massive a settlement that they're paying out for treating women poorly all campus. Sorry this guy can't come here not now. Ohno a billion dollar settlement in total with a b with a be just heard baby with a b. Yeah this is one of the reasons that won't happen another reason. That won't happen as because i feel very hesitant in saying i know anything that is in the head of the decision makers usc or even if the ad has that much power. I know the eighty has the power to fire helton. But i'm also unsure of who exactly pulls the strings because this has been the case at usc that we're unsure of who's making the decisions who has the actual sway and of what they're thinking is because they're thinking over the past twenty years has been bizarre and maybe pass that like if we went past that look back. We'd probably go well. That was pretty weird too. Because usc very insular a much smaller community. It's a private school. That doesn't have quite so many hands on the wheel as a large public institution. Right like usc in texas comparable the sense that they are both powers that have by and large over the past twenty thirty years underachieved given their resources where they are and their historical performance as football programs right texas more so due to squandering all those resources right flagship flagship university in a football mad state that somehow manages to pile up very few trophies for all of effort time and concentration that puts on football. Us's different because they've got those they've got those laurels but the lows and the inconsistencies and the decision making has just been strange like they hired lane kiffin three times they hired. I mean like. I know the names are different but they hired lane kiffin are- different times. They hired lane kiffin. They hired link to and then they hired linkin zero or diet lane kiffin in clay helton right offensive guy offensive guy offense guy. They didn't even do a program. Do where you sort of yoyo back and forth between you know okay..

"Here's here's also might. That's worse than surprised. You're right okay. So here's a we'll do. If ohio state house they lose four games. Pfc will not watch a single second of nfl football in the monta september next year if ohio state loses less than four games. You can't watch week one right. You can't watch any game in week one but okay okay watch. Football does that include we're talking to. Nfl does include. The are jake market down with does it. It doesn't include the. I would say for this one. Does your stakes are so low. It's big losses lost. All talked about bill counts. No big ten counts. Ballgame bill o. Game counts no absolutely not right. Mr little facetious out ballgame does does does count. Yes okay you also don't worry. I think it's only three weeks because they've changed. September twenty seven. Doubt was luke fickle. Right so yeah gator. Luke fickle. He seems to be the guy that everybody's talking about for usc because the ad for usc was the cincinnati and every time the job like this comes open we have to have the debate were contractually obligated to discuss. What is the best job in college. Foot correct is usc atop job in college football. Yes i think. Usc might be a coach killer. The university itself might be coach killer. Usc is a top job. Top three job maybe. Yeah top-three job. would you put above it. Who that's tough alabama just right now because of like everything that they've done. Don't say texas no i'm not i would probably say like like florida. Maybe just because of the it's in state recruited like can you just basically roll out of bed and get five star guys and yes. That's true for usc. And that's true for florida. I think texas is the best job to be wanted for but not to have but the but. Us's absolutely top job because the town is crazy there and they they are the big dog in their conference. And obviously oregon. Is maybe change. That are you gonna say it. Or am i going to say. What jeff fisher. It's coming away there. He did play. There did not ties other news in iowa looks awesome and my other note was arkansas. That crab was amazing. I wanna get sam on the podcast. I think we will get san pittman on the podcast. He is he's very great college. Football character Atm mo is at the Is that the worst win of week. Till they did lose their quarterback. Yeah because i had a lot to do with. They looked weird daily like a team that should not be highly ranked as they are now is. I'm going to put that up to the quarterback because when you lose your quarterback in the in the first quarter kind of changes everything especially in college know like competent backup but Yeah college football. I don't know we'll we'll see. I do think wisconsin after watching notre dame played toledo like wisconsin. Be back all right. Yeah so the my heart will be ripped out again. Love back in. It's not going to be suicidal big cat until you need to string together. Few wins at least it will be so incredible if it was ohio. State versus wisconsin. The big ten championship game in ohio state had three losses. Going in oh my god fuck. I don't know how that's i don't think he'd mathematically could work unless they lose to notice. Toss terrible teams. It's definitely poet holy shit without being credible. I hope even if they had two wins. I don't even wisconsin beat them. I honestly don't know why opened my big mouth. Yeah those a lot i just. I heard four winds come from and losses for losses. And i was that's gazing yet. All right let's get to hotseat cool.

Really close out in the end. No no no no no no. It was a poor. I mean i'll say this it wasn't. It wasn't a bad idea by the ravens. Because as you said the raiders were already infield go position so here they are trying to force a stop right. Jot the you know. Get this ball back for team one more time. The coordinator say. I'm all in eight. So i don't know i don't know but johnny readers win it in overtime. Walk off touch now. No no no no. We're not glossing over this. Okay i mean we can go over it man.

One of better alabama office a lyman angry but he just got we got toasted or something toasted lot data do chip blocking. It's not like the ravens defense. The past russia's they brought in houston rodman some veterans. So it's not like they and they had a young guy to their that that were really good so they're like what the problem the thing that that really got on a lot of raider nation nurses leatherwood committed a false start at the one in overtime on benedek football now from the one that is just a five yard area. Five yard penalty of course debt led to the reception because not acts that and say. This is a raiders. I'll i'll get them kudos in the game but this was no my stroke. I don't know a lot of things happen. In those huddles allowed things happening situations Yeah i'm not sure i can't. I'm not gonna fault leatherwood whole away. No i can't fault completely. But i mean it was that it was david car throwing over. Willie snead him. Which doc mentioned you know turn of that committee before the right over his head so somebody on facebook said that willis needed needed to bring that in his hands. It like it was it was over. His it was literally high the properties. Somebody say he needed to pull that in this or somebody say i didn't see i didn't see it definitely had david fantasy league. Which says nobody ever. I've ever talked to the raiders. Defense stepped up caused a fumble jackson without costly humble monday. Yeah don't ask us. that's already knew. Yeah but of course. Doc mentioned it at the end of the game. Why open walker. Why they'll bye by calling the daimler by by ridiculous ridiculous. I enjoyed the game. Because i watched that. Of course i watched something else that occurred last night that i had to live stream to the dock because history was committed also last night. But what a wild way to end week.

"The first time that oregon. They were previously going into the in into ohio state. Stadium ohio stadium. And that's monster win. That is a signature. Win for that program and mario cristobal for sure but but the truth of the matter is is that the rest of the conference is hanging his against tales. And here's why this back to my point. Usc schedule is so weak. All they've got now is notre dame and ucla and notre dame george just barely godly going lido bear. Just barely got by this weekend. And by the way back and got barely got by a bad florida state team right as we've seen. Who lost a jacksonville state at home. Jacksonville state pulls off one of the all time greatest shockers in college football history. You know. I had to look up. Who jacksonville state is who they played conference. No no idea. No idea no know. They played in the kickoff in the kickoff game. I don't know about that. But they played. They played they played the first game of the college football season this year. I didn't realize that. But they play against powerhouses like sam houston state stephen. F austin lamar dixie state. A school like that goes to florida state and beats beats team but it all gets back to the point about college football that i'm surprised. They fired clay. Helton two games into the season but the fact of the matter is. Us's entire year is hanging in the balance after only two weeks and one devastating destructive loss against stanford. Yeah i i had a pretty a pretty good idea like well that stadium out like that i was. I was watching that game from my hotel room in houston and by the way fox. I listen. I'm not trying to tell anyone else to do their job. But i'm going to do that for a second year. You've probably don't wanna schedule a baseball game. That doesn't have a time limit before a big football game. Like i mean the game was being bounced right. It was on fx to that it was on f s. And it's not espn which you know like let's say you have traditional cable or or direct tv or whatever we all the channels are right there like one after the other. Yeah right so it's easy to find if you're trying to get two big fox here channel. Eleven in la and you gotta balance to like to direct tv. That's like an a six hundreds and then this one is in the two hundreds. It's very confusing. And also maybe put a little bug on the screen that says hey you know this is where you can find. The usc stanford well as not telling people how to do their jobs. You've just done a good job of telling them how to do a better job. I mean i'm just trying to help as like someone. I someone who cares about the business and everyone getting their fair share. Because i'm a big believer in if everyone is doing what they can do and doing their best job. I means that's great for all of us. So yeah that's what. I would say nonetheless yet when that thing emptied out do there. I mean look at halftime. I felt like they were in trouble. And i was like by the end of the third quarter. I'm like oh man he may be done. But it's still surprising to me that you fire a coach. This early in the season devastating loss. No doubt about it is the season completely lost. It is not. Are they going to win a national championship. No they weren't going to win a national championship in all likelihood even if they finished unbeaten during the regular season I'm just surprised that this school and this program with all the tradition of success would start the season knowing that their coaches on the hot seat and one really bad lost to a team like stanford has them make this sort of what i would call reactive immediate decision now by the way. Let me just say this with. All of that. Being said i agree. I read with the firing of clay. Helton i'm surprised that they made this move. But why are you surprised. Because i didn't think they do it. I really honestly. I mean but what what made you like okay. You didn't think they'd do it because they don't have the resolve to do it because there's too much money on the deal. I listen. i've known. Mike bone the athletic director at at usc. For twenty years. And i just felt like knowing mike the way i think i know mike that mike would probably take his time and be a bit more patient because by the way well wait as a patient before this year. Well i was just gonna say if you remember people wanted klay gone. I mean they wanna click on for a number of years and i feel bad talking about it like this. Because he's is a nice man he's been he's been at this place for a while even in a role where he wasn't the head coach and is a nice man a good man and a good football man but he's just not head coaching material for a school. This big i believe neither part of it. There's there's still this other problem though. Really george and that is this. Pete carroll was so successful and was such a charismatic personality. That p carol made usc not just the big program of the pack. Twelve pete carroll. And it wasn't just pete i mean. Don't get me wrong. There was there was reggie bush. There were a lot of other guys but they were so good for such a long period of time and pete was so charismatic. That anybody who follows pete is automatically compared to and since pete has left not any of his under studies and now not helton. None of these guys can't compare to. What pete carroll was no of course not.

"Soukup have you been able to recover from that yet or no. I'm not sure. I felt some soreness around my body. I'm like is that from barely being able to do. Forty three ups. Although chris took one from forty two in the open he did call. He did take one from you. yes i'd like. You took one from me. I was like come on. Give me the forty four. Nah i just realized my whole body gyrated. Yeah you know yeah. It's what happened to me on number forty nine going fifty. Now wait a second. Have you recovered from your weekend of calling an nfl football game. Did you have to you. Went to houston right. I did go to houston. Yes let me tell you. Something george sodano. I never do this. But i knew it was your very first game radio. Yeah and i was like you know what i'm gonna listen. I listened to that whole freaking game on sunday. Well i apologize for the first driver to when i was trying to figure out you know these players who move really fast looking like ants from houston stadium. That basically has a hockey booth for play by play booth for radio. Radio gets no respect man. I have learned this not no respect. None zero respect. I was from the sky. I was broadcasting from this from the clouds. That's where i was no respect at all. Let me tell you something. When i spent fifteen years doing monday night football on radio when we would get to the end of the game. I'd say yeah. I want russell wilson. They say no. Tv's taking russell. wilson. I go okay. Well then i'll take the next guy tyler lockett. And they're like okay. We'll try and get him for him. Like try like literally had to go get her own interviews. After the game was over we can never count. There's no respect for radio. That's why they put you all the way up. And that's guy. But george. I'm gonna tell you right now. You did a great job for your very very first radio. Play by play of an nfl football game. You did one amazing job. I can't believe. I sat there and listened to that entire game. I can't either to be honest with you. Thank you. It was on here on seven ten. I gotta llano some texts from some folks who are listening in the car. A different stretches so laura actually sent me a text in the middle of the day yesterday. Shoes you don't have any idea where i can find. Sodano is broadcast. I go really. I don't look at because you tweet. It and i have series like sirius. Xm so i'll just pop it in there and there's so many channels and i was like okay. That's not him that's not him but houston to. That's not him. And i just ended up saying hey lins scott like where do i find. They're like dude seven ten. I was like oh my god real radio could just hear it on radio or i believe it was on the stream on the espn app to was sitting on that thing on my phone. So yes george. I recovered from our push-up challenge. It'd be very well recovered from traveling all weekend and calling on. Nfl football game yesterday. So yeah we're we're both ready to roll. But little did we know coming into today's broadcast. We'd have this major breaking story right in front of us. Now did we though i mean. Did you not really know like people were really upset. And i like i kind of. Don't blame them. I don't blame him either. But i will say this. I'm surprised that they fired him. Now look you get beat by stanford you and i were having this by the way. If you don't know what the hell we're talking about if you're just like getting in your car and you don't know klay hilton's been fired. Yes so you. And i are having this conversation on friday from black gold and i'm saying to you. Look in theory yes stanford should not be able to compete with usc. And what did i tell you you said. But they do and they have and they will now. Yeah so so. They shouldn't be able to because they recruit a completely different type of player. One that really more often than not won't play at usc which is why that person decides to go to stanford. It's like wait. They're offering me a scholarship to play football at stanford. Whether i'm good or bad i don't care i'm going and i'm taking that opportunity. If my son got any a ride to go to stanford he's going. I'm driving his ass there. Of course in fact. I had a friend of mine who's son committed to play at stanford this year. He's a senior in high school. He was it was down to. Usc stanford oregon. And i go hold on timeout go. Your kids are stanford kinda guy. Meaning he's never gonna see the field at sc. In all likelihood he'll probably never play down in oregon but at stanford they might actually be able to move him from defensive end to guard any might actually be able to play right. So you take that opportunity. But the fact that stanford steamrolled. Usc did for thirteen in the fourth quarter embarrassing to be sure but i will admit i'm surprised that they fired him. After two games now look. The season is hanging in the balance. And we're two games in and part of that. Georgia is something that you and i talked about last week. Usc schedule is week. There is no oregon who just had the biggest win. so far. For the pac twelve by going through horseshoe and winning at ohio state. Washington's terrible got smashed this past weekend by michigan. Yup the rest of the conference doesn't look so great unless you consider. Ucla had a big weekend. they didn't have to play. Moved up three spots. Thirteen right all the horgan right. They've got the pac. Twelve has oregon oregon monster win. I mean they snapped. Ohio state's twenty-five game home win streak. It's the first time that oregon. They were previously going into the in into ohio state. Stadium ohio stadium. And that's monster.

"And it will be USC basketball. With a three point lead Trojans have gone cold missing the last four. Cal hasn't made a field goal in 3.5 minutes. And there's a foul on cow and the foul is called away from the play on Thorpe. Actually, no, they're gonna call that a shooting foul on DJ Thorpe. And so USC will go to the line with 4 17 left. Two free throws. The Trojans. That's the 19 fell on cows. The USC will shoot to the rest of the way there through the one of once. And they will shoot two here. Having mobility toe the line. His first free throw is good. So Evan, seven of eight at the free throw line, the game none bigger than that one right there as he gives us CS 65 61 lead with 4 17 left. In the game. Trojans have been good at the line in this 1 14 of 18 70%. That is great for this USC team. But the second one from Evan. It's the ball in his hands, spends it and the second free throw is good as well. He spends it through the hoop, eight of nine of the line. Evans up to 19 points. And USC is leaders five, its largest in the second half approaches, led by 11 early, but really, it's been Cal most of the way since then, and Allah Trojans pushing back here in crunch time. 66 61 for 17 2 goes in the Trojans get a stop. It held Cal scoreless over the last 2 15. Here's a jumper by Bradley. That's no good. He's just four of 10 from the field and the rebound inside goes to Chavez Goodwin. So good went into the game. He gets the board. With 3 56 left, the Trojans will have it leading by five. Having Mobley sitting down for a late rest here, Andy Enfield trying to buy some time in his legs, But it's turned over the other way by Ethan Anderson. And that will get us to the final time out. So we'll be Cal basketball when we come back. U S. C. 66 cows 61 3 41 left on the Trojans Media network..
