You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. What's up y'all, Paul fine bomb show, Peter burns sitting in for mister Paul fine bomb 8 5 5 two four two Paul is the number Ronnie. You're worried, talk to me, Ronnie. What are you worried about right now? How can I help you, Ronnie? Yeah. So yeah, I just want to thank you for taking my call. I've been a die hard Tennessee fan my whole life. I was born and raised in upper east Tennessee. I can't knock these Tennessee, but there is an upper east Tennessee. And. In the state of Tennessee, we do have a pro football team now, but it's still the university of Tennessee football. I thought about university Tennessee football. And I'm thankful that we can compete at least now, we've got to think we've got us a coach. But I'm worried about, you know, I just hope the parts that be at the university will do what it takes to keep him and I see Oklahoma having trouble. And that worries me. Yeah, Ronnie, just like, it could be just like old 9, you know? The lifetime week. I almost beat Alabama. And Tuscaloosa was laying here if you remember. It was a very low score game. Right. And I've got a feeling that this might be a low scoring game. I don't think we're flopped our own defense as good as Alabama, but I often did. Ronnie, I would be, and I understand what you're saying. I do think it's a little bit more of a higher score in game. As far as being worried about Josh hyper. And again, people are talking about, all right, Brent venables in year one. They're what three game losing street right now. They got the doors blown off of them and the Red River rivalry. I don't think people understand how soured that went with Josh hyper at Oklahoma. Remember, he used to be the offensive coordinator there. And at some point, they were like, nope. You're out. Lincoln rally takes over and of course Lincoln Riley has a bunch of success now. He's out. So I don't believe that to think that a, they just hired visible. So they're not in any position that they're going to go buy out Brent venables. Unless this thing just completely goes, haywire, which I don't think it is going to. But on the flip side of it, the reason why Josh hyper was a head coach over at Tennessee, which is because his loyalty also to Danny white, the athletic director. Remember, a lot of people were kind of like, oh, Danny white made such a lazy, higher. He just took his head coach. Well, guess what? You should be pumped. College game day is there. Nation's there. I got full phone lines for four hours talking about Tennessee football. Because Danny white made that jump and gave him that job. I think Danny and Josh have a great relationship. He's very loyal to how it could be an extension of all of a sudden they could find a way to beat Bama coming up on Saturday.

"The big news from the SEC at least is that Ryan harshman's teacher is a little murkier late this afternoon with the man who hired him Alan green ousted on the plains. It was expected it just wasn't expected in August. It was expected at the end of the season when his contract was to run out. Let's continue with more phone calls here. And Michael is in Athens. Good afternoon. Good afternoon, Paul. Hello, how are you? I'm listening. Take it down, but been able to get through. Let's listen to your show today. The previous call a couple of segments ago. About the bulldogs there. In the same boat there, it seems like George is just not getting the mention or the hype as returning champions and not really much talk as a repeat. Looking at their schedule, I'll see them in the regular schedule. And maybe just a possibility of a play out the same as last year, but to play offs and see in Alabama and win or lose going right back to the national championship, what's your thoughts there? Yeah, listen, Michael, I don't get too hung up on whether people think George is going to repeat or not. I happen to think that they won't. But I think there are legitimately the third best team in the country and fans want to be upset. Fine. But you're right. I don't see a game in the regular season that they should lose, but I'm more than willing to see what happens a week from today. Hey, thank you for the call. Do appreciate it. Let's check out. Nathan up next in South Dakota. Hello, Nathan. Hey, Paul, thanks for taking my call. How are you today? Very well. Thank you. Happy college football eve Tia. I actually graduated from university, Tennessee, some big ball fan, but grew up a die hard Nebraska fan. And last night I was watching incur kerb streets pre show before the season and he set me into orbit with a heart attack when you picked Nebraska to win the Big Ten west and just trying to get your opinion and think if it's more fair to say Nebraska wins the Big Ten west or Tennessee wins the SEC east and then also just thoughts or advice for those people who suffer for fall weddings. Yes, thanks, Nathan. I think Nebraska winning the west is more likely, it's probably not that far of a jump. They have been so close. They've lost literally every game. On the final score. So I think they're doing. And I think they'll start correcting that tomorrow. It was a win over northwestern. Now, if they don't win against northwestern, then the beginning of the end, we'll have arrived. It took a lot of perseverance to give Scott frost another year after a truly disastrous beginning. Thank you for the call. Great to have you with us. So let's check out Kevin, who is up next. A hello, Kevin. Hey, Paul. How are you doing today? Very well. Thanks. I have a question for you. And then the comment and you'll see how they're connected in a minute. Do you think your sales doing this show in 12 years? No, I don't. Well, I'll have to find somebody else. My comment is this. 12 years is a long time, by the way. That is a long time. My comment is this. A week ago today, Jim said, Dan from Jessica loses said that he would give somebody a thousand to one on that we won't say 20, 34. And so I want to take him up on that and see if he is. And I want to bear him $20 and he can put his own due to hold it forward. How old is Jim? Because 12 years, 34 is how long that 12 years? Okay. Yeah, and by the way, I plan on being alive in 12 years. I just don't think I'm going to be here, but I could. Do you think you're not here? No, I'm okay. You're already retired, aren't you? I don't expect to be here in 12. You know what? I'm not sure this will be here in 12 years. I really don't. But okay. By the way, it all candor, Kevin, those of us on the show, we are always on a Friday. We're hoping we're back Monday, let alone 20, 34. Can I say one more thing? Sure. I hope you will. Okay, the gentleman has called you a little earlier. And said he was about to get on the kidney list and he was doing dialysis. Right. I want to wish him a look. I survived one more day of dialysis today. And I really truly wish him luck on getting on the list. Well, Kevin, I appreciate you saying that in my thoughts go out to you and then I've seen this in I've had people explain what it's like and I just I am in such awe of people that go through that and have the attitude that you have. Well, let me tell you real quick how it really is for me. On all state for anybody, but me. It is four hours of sitting in the same uncomfortable chair. In the same uncomfortable position. Until you're finished. You know, and when I get out, I'm locked out for a day or two. And I do it three times a week. So that lays about one day a week. Distally. And I don't mean to bring you down. I'm glad you did, because. I was at hospital the other day. Not for me. And looking at people who are going through various things, it's. Difficult, but it's also inspiring to know how important it is. You have to do it. You don't have a choice. And you can pay a lot. And the endurance that it takes to live your life and. I'm just appreciative because we all wonder. You get sick and you think this is the worst thing that's ever happened. It really isn't. It's not a big deal. It will pass. We're going through what many people go through, including you, is a matter of survival. Well, that's true. But I will tell you one thing my mother always said, you can look around and there's always somebody going through something. Kevin, I can't thank you enough for calling. And I deeply appreciate it and I'm blessed not to have anything to say in response that, yeah, I know what you're going through because I have no earthly idea. I really don't. I was sitting on a plane the other day for about two and a half hours. Am I going? Is this ever going to end? I'm not a plane. Serving you drinks. Thank you so much. That is amazing. Let's talk next to John, who is in Florida. Hello, John. Hey, Paul. John show, hey, just to all my Georgia fans. I know everyone's happy we want to announce a championship and all of that was last season. We got a new season upon us and we just need to get through this season unscathed and try to stay healthy and see what happens. We've gotten all the praise and I think we should have gotten. And I just think we got to move forward. Last season was last season and we're starting on these seats. So we just need to get prepared for you. That's one thing that coaches say, especially those who have won the title, Saban and Kirby smart as well. That you may have won the title last year, but you're really not the defending champion.

"And we welcome all of you back and squirrel is up next in Mississippi, hello, squirrel. And speaking of Mississippi, I hear you're going to be hitting the Magnolia state tomorrow. On my way, I can't wait. I have contractors working my house. You know how contractors are and how he was supposed to be through a day or two ago and naturally is not come back tomorrow, but I had planned on ease up that way and it is with a couple of years. And anytime you come close by like that, you know, I also take the opportunity if I've got the time and I encourage anybody who's got time tomorrow and he's in the Oxford area to come by the set and well thank you. Sorry to miss you. Yes. It's really like I said, I'll catch you next time or maybe even later on this year. You never know. But you remember last time he was an Oxford, we were talking member who comes slipping up on our elbow. You can remember that? No. Joe from red bay. Oh, you're right. Yeah, I remember seeing you. And it start fill a couple years ago, but I forgot about the actual Knoxville one time. Right. The Alabama came up here. And I was going to catch you down in Baton Rouge and I got as far as the Indian mound right there by the stadium and I ran into some people on new tailgate and I think you're all out there, but we got through with that situation. But I watched the game Saturday night via old Tennessee game and I guess growing up, nothing Tennessee fans do surprises me. And I wasn't shocked by what I saw. I thought they went a little over the top. But I think a lot of it has to do now. Is because they sell beer there is my understanding. So you're right. That could be why there were so many beer cans. I mean, in the 70s and the 80s and then the 90s, I remember seeing things thrown on the fields and Knoxville in Birmingham. Stark will Oxford and probably if I thought hard, one or two other places. So it's really not that unusual. It's just now that they sell beer, they have so much more projectiles maybe. So that's something that maybe needs to be addressed in a way that I don't know, I don't know what needs to be done with that. But I'm kind of surprised, I expected like a huge fan like maybe a half million or a $1 million. I'm actually surprised that people are wanting to hunt these people down at their homes and like you say prostitute them to the full extent at all. So I have really two questions. What would they be charged with? By the way. And what is the problem? Here's the problem with what I just got. I mean, I made a nice Law & Order speech. The reality is there's no really full extent of the law because most of what they would be charged with would be misdemeanors. That's what I thought. Yeah. So I really don't understand with all the fury. And it was wrong. But I mean, it's like people want to cut out their right hands. We're letting people go that seriously assault people if you're looking at our court systems and so I mean, I think we need to let these college football fans kind of have a Mulligan or something. Unfortunately, nobody was hurt. And if someone had been hurt in the it'd be a different story. Yeah, we'd be talking about more serious crimes. And I am contradicting what I said a few minutes ago. It felt good to give the Law & Order speech. However, it's not going to work in this case. And after the game said, this would be a this story would be forgotten. You know what? You know how we do things? I mean, Afghanistan was a weak, the border crisis as a this should be no more than a week. But hey, thanks for taking my call. Thank you very much. Good to hear from you. Let's continue. And Mike is in Austin, Texas. So, hey, Mike. Hey, don't Paul. We're well. Thank you for the call. I was just calling in Dave grew up in Bristol Tennessee, big university Tennessee fan and don't really want to talk about that. What I want to talk about is LSU and I know that obviously at Oregon, so even at the end of the season, but there's a new beat writer for USA Today that's covering LSU and not knowing real well because he's my son, and I think you would be a good person to kind of get hooked up with you and your show and do some things. Kind of replaced, I think Glenn gilboa in the past, but I just want to mention that. So tell me, I don't want to out his sources, but what is it? What has he been writing about? Well, he's been writing about the buyout and the fact that they came to an agreement on that. So several articles for the daily advertiser. Okay. Is really working for us part of the USA Today network, but a good kid kind of following your first steps make your political science at University of Tennessee got his degree from covering your about 8 years now and doing high school preps there and Monroe Louisiana. So it then got the LSU beat writer job with a couple of weeks ago and he's really excited about doing it. It's been in some time in Baton Rouge and he told me the other day, it's kind of difficult to have a lot of inside knowledge when you've only been on this particular job two weeks. But I'm sure you'll get there just like you had at and their program. Well, I am extremely interested in talking to him. Especially considering his background. I think while we were talking, I think I have I think I have the right name. So we will you tell him to expect to hear from us, okay? Yeah, he's going to be he's going to be hitting almost tomorrow. For the LSU game. So I had told him this afternoon. Maybe I'll stop by and try to introduce yourself to you or others that are there. Yeah, if he is around either tomorrow if he's around tomorrow or Saturday morning, I'll be there of course as well. Please have him come by and say hello to me. Okay. I'll certainly do that. I appreciate you taking my call on the time on your show. It's a pleasure, Mike. Thanks for alerting me and I look forward to seeing him tomorrow and getting to know him always spent some time last week with some young reporters and it's always one of my favorite parts of the weekends on the campuses. Why don't we take a break here? We have a couple of more gas and then more of your phone calls the rest of the way as we roll on here on a Thursday.

"Get your number one choice. And and that's worked out to florida's favor Dan mullen has that program coming at a high level. And i think you know. Tennessee is where it is because it miss on. Dan mullen in twenty seventeen and i think. There's a pretty sizable gap between those programs. Right now and i think that was reflected on the scoreboard. But i do think. I was surprised that that tennessee was in that game as much as they were. You know through one half on saturday so as much as you you you look for silver silver lining in twenty four point loss. I think it is tennessee. Has missouri this weekend And of course. Many more tough games after that south carolina and ole miss before they Get to alabama a wake. You also wrote about a decision that we've heard about here several times and every time i think about what you wrote about it it becomes even more annoying. I don't want to upstage your column and your thoughts. But it was tennessee's decision to cancel the army game in the future and replace it with akron. It's it seemed like the the spin coming out of big orange country was hey we we were just. We were just cleaning up from what phil former in jeremy pruitt had tried to do but ultimately the new athletic director just signed off on it. But what what have you learned about that. That's correct ball. Is tennessee officials say that this process started under under jeremy proof hill former that they wanted to get out of this this game against army but it was eighty danny whites who signed off on the paperwork to cancel this game And it was eighty danny white Who signed to bring akron in in place of army In that september day. And as i wrote about in in a column This doesn't sit well with me for a number of factors. I think right off the bat. You have the congressional medal of honor society convention occurring in knoxville tennessee that september week next year And the medal of honor is the highest military award for valor. You can receive in our country. There are only sixty nine living medal of honor recipients Right now and i mean these are true american heroes. They were set to be honored in that game against army Mixed september tennessee cancelled. They had a chance to welcome army Into the stadium with army general robert milnes name on its Someone who served in two world wars robert neyland had his head. Coaching career at tennessee twice interrupted by military service. Furthermore tennessee's army. Rotc has a rich history at the university until the nineteen sixties Rotc participation was compulsory at the university of tennessee as it was at many many universities tennessee's and military program rotc program predates any other military program At a state university Nationwide and i think this medal of honor situation you know that. They had a chance to honor medal of honor recipients inside neyland stadium against army with army and the building and they cancelled them. They duck them. They chickened out playing army because they thought they'd lose. They brought in one of the worst teams in sec football or excuse me fbi football akron to replace him in an effort to try to make a bowl game and josh hypol- second season they wanna play armies triple option. They wanna get cut blocks And so they cancelled army And now sure will With tennessee honor those medal of honor recipients against akron. I'm sure they would. But i don't think that's quite the same doing it. A game where we're armies building and blake. I thought of all the things you pointed out. In the medal of honor thing was the clincher for anyone who was on the fence but you ended your column talking about any knowledgeable. Tennessee fan understands to be the the holy grail of tennessee. Football and those are the maximums of general kneeland Finish that part of the story for us. You know you look at g. General kneeland maxims. And they're they're so often quoted around tennessee football. You can't get through a week without hearing someone General new ones maxims well. His seventh maxim states carry the fight to our opponent and keep it there for sixty minutes. Well there was no fight in this decision. I don't think there was any honor In in this decision to the contrary This was tennessee. Chickening out of playing a team that it was worried would beat it Team it thought was worried would give trouble with. Its triple option. Offense insists. Tennessee didn't they didn't want to show any fight in this decision. Or at least it's it's it's administration. I'm not gonna put this on on the players in the program. They had they had nothing to do with this. But in terms of the administration No i don't think they. I don't think they were thinking about the name on the on the stadium. I don't think they were thinking about the maxims. And i don't think they were thinking about the optics That come with canceling a game against army in knoxville tennessee Mean there's nothing. Nobody can add anything to what you've said. I mean this any aspect of that but but for those who are familiar with what blake wrote about the idea blake that living congressional of congressional medal of honor winners would have been celebrated at neilan stadium. I mean it's it's really almost unconscionable to think about what this university did But no need to pile on well said thank you very much boy could so great to have you on the program. Wow you got to read what he wrote. You heard him say but When when you just lays this out the fact that they're meeting in knoxville and we're going to be honored at the.

Usually right on the gas next. Yeah, I have my name on it. It's probably done. It probably does. Yeah, I hope not. But yeah. Do you still dabble in the veterinary sciences? Somewhat? No, I haven't. I haven't practiced since 2000 and five But my daughter of, uh, she's she's running the family. Been there, Practice 2005, and she was the 1st and 2nd Generation graduate from University, Tennessee. That's awesome. That's awesome. You pregnant when she had a good teacher. Probably. She well grew up along the way. You always like If she paid attention, I hope I taught her right. Yeah. Sounds like it So far, I can tell you a couple other programs. You have enough agritourism. Has really emerged and and talk about that. When we say tourism, people scratch their head, but it's a big part of it. It's such an opportunity for some farmers. They want to take that on because You know, through the pandemic. We realized a couple things and one of them was people like to spend times out. Com Outdoors, Right And so the visits to the state parks in the state forests and everything outside your skyrocket as well as interesting local food production. Visiting farms pick your own. So, uh, you know, a farmer could do a corn maze or pick your own or just a farm tour type situation. And that could. That could be some real income for a farmer in the middle of nowhere, right? Because people drive along ways to see something or eat something or drink something that they want, right, right. And is that even more as products that are on the shelves of the store like maybe jams and jellies and sauces or anything like that. You have a number of, uh Producers or farmers that are also processors right processes so it could be it could be milk could be meat. Um It could be jams and jellies. Some of them have manufacturing kitchens. Some, uh, participated in community kitchens that are also manufacturing kitchens that we inspect and are proof of that use. So there's there's number opportunities that they can take their own product, add value to it and sell it and make some additional money. I talked with a dairy farmer couple Couple months ago who has they make cheese speciality cheeses, and then they even have their own little restaurant where they sell that and some other products. They've been very enterprising, Big, Big Dairy. A wonderful idea to, um and that's what I mean by adding value. You take a raw product. That you would order is ordinarily sale at a lower rate. Uh, you process it further add value to it and sell it for a higher, uh, cost and make more money that way, So yeah. Uh, that's that's an answer for some, not everybody can do it. But it sure is an answer. For some. Definitely. Farmers are very innovative. It's just by nature. You know, they have to be. I guess they have to be if they want survive. Yeah, that's right. That's right. It's it's It's Yeah, absolutely. It's a tough business to be in, but they love it. I haven't found anybody doesn't love it For the most part. Well, it's uh you know, it kind of gets in your blood is kind of the way alive. But you know, you still have to be A good businessman or woman, right? Right now. We're seeing more young farmers coming up or is it Generations after generations. That's a big issue. Yeah, so thank the average age of a farmer's 65 6. I mean, it's I know it's all up there. So yeah, it's a big concern. I mean, we're we, uh, our business development group in the department is launching for the first time a beginning Farmers program. This fall. Good, So we're anxious to get that off the ground. Uh, we also are going to do our level best to Uh, try to mentor Find a good farmer mentor, Forrester mentor to teach somebody that has a lot to do something that may not have that opportunity, And that's that's something we're going to pursue. And then this transition of one generation. To next is a tough, sure tough thing because you may not have a family member that wants to do that. That's right. So what do you did? Right. Do you sail, do you? Do you reach out somebody that might want to buy it or so It's uh, it's a problem. I mean, there's less and less Farmland all the time. And there's less and less farmers all time. Yeah, I can see that. It's uh yeah, I completely understand that. Where there Kids are going away going to college and stay off and they'll come back anymore. So hopefully it's a matter of, uh, I think you have to profitability to be sustainable. Yeah. In anything. I want to ask you to about the ragtag program that you have a department of Agriculture. What is the AG Tech program? The egg tag program is wonderful. The next time I come here, I'll expect you to have one. Okay. All right. So it's a you can when you get your license plate renewed or when you get your You know your renewal, You can get a license plate. It's an agriculture plague, and it's got a beautiful red barn kind of sunset or sunrise thing on its beautiful logo. And it's a little bit extra. But that money goes to the department agriculture and we use that for AG education programs. Okay, and those are desperately needed. Yeah, we We've got several initiatives, agriculture in the classroom that we work with Farm Bureau and others on that. To mean people need to know where their food comes from An early age have an appreciation for agriculture and forestry, right, right and understand that and this, uh Today's society or Ted, Today's world doesn't know that much about it because You know, the general population is three or four generations removed from the farm. I mean, lots of people used to. Be with her grandfather something but it's time progresses less and less people understand or know anything about agriculture. Yeah, until your point about the farm Bureau of being very active in that that is a big initiative with farm bureaus all over to get in that classroom and teach those kids from early age. This is this. This is that this is Yeah, They've got a nagging classroom foundation. They're one of our big partners. It's the largest farm bureau in the United States. Yeah, Yeah, that's great. That's a So someone wants to ragtag. What do they need to do? Is that through the when they go to their county, uh, tag office and get whatever it is, they can also go online, Okay? Commonly if your if your plates up up to get renewed w the time to do it. There you go. You just told how valuable it is and what it goes to their kids Learn. And just, uh, I see them everywhere. Yeah, but we have seen a slight increase in that over the years and I think it's going to continue. People are catching catching on what you You have a lot to keep up with the Department of Agriculture because it is such a huge industry. And, you know, it's just amazing that we have to have it. So your work is is the number one industry number one industry? Yes, And the most important, the most important as you say, That's why your what you do is very important. And I appreciate you coming in and talking today. Good to meet you. Well, this has been great. I appreciate the opportunity to talk about agriculture. Well, look. Well, being the number one industry.

"And hanging out with you today. A little bit of a weird situation developing here in the o. Six daniel yes. Something weird happened earlier. I actually got a group taxed with me you and matthew right this morning and and then matthews's never showed up for this show. Can we throw up the group. Text real quick and i'll read is. This comes from matthew berry team. Mars personal cell phone if you want the numbers. Dm me on twitter. I'll send it to you. But i'm not going to share it. On the show quote. They tried to damage reputation. You saved there is by not telling your side of the story sent in comic sans taxed and obviously in extra-large because matthew has poor vision. Yeah the font is is very very low serious. Though this fun right comics dan gilbert of course cavs who wish well right now but he obviously had the infamous letter to lebron are to the city of cleveland about lebron. James cared a lot of weight. So i'm matthews not here but mike is here. Yeah i got the call last second. I just ran in here and then i'm doing my best and try to do a marquez. Calloway impression here. Okay hype connection there. I don't know yeah. They're pretty good marquez. Calloway tennessee guys. Have some success university tennessee guys over in new orleans. So we've got a big show today. We're going to double trouble. We're gonna keep things rolling with the cowboys and also the giants build off of the news that we got yesterday surrounding saquon barkley and if we have time at the end of the show will dive into some questions. But it's good to have my clay back. Mike is going to be a big part of the show this year. I i've been trying to remind myself about this. That not everybody who's listening to this show has been listening for ten years so if you're new to the show this year welcome. Mike play an integral part of what we do here. Espn you probably already know him. Because mike produce more content than anybody at espn fantasy. And if you haven't heard him before on the show get used to him. Mike and incredibly smart person always good to have you with us today. Thanks for real news. Nothing major that we need to dive into. So we're going to head right now over to double trouble travel double trouble trouble. Don- travel troubles. This moment there on double secret probation. The nfc east and potentially to loaded fantasy rosters. Mike one of them. We feel really good about them. Being loaded the other potentially right and potentials won't watch season. It probably isn't feel that way giants a little different today. If you sort of pieced if you took every piece part you could see a scenario in which they achieve some level fantasy relevance. Let's begin with the dallas cowboys. Who of course last year or a major disappointment they went six ten. Obviously a lot of that was due to the fact that got poor quarterback play after dak prescott injury in week five. They also got abominable defensive play last year. It was just awful last season but the quarterback dak prescott is the man of note mike what he left in week. Five against the giants. Believe it or not. He was off to historic pace. I mean truly red hot. He was absolutely dominating as of right now. The ankle seems to be no major concern. It looked nasty at the time but he's had plenty of time to recover. He's a big tough resilient guy we are dealing with something right now though that is on the radar gotta shoulder issue with his right throwing shoulder. You and i are not define your bell. We don't have a great grip on how much it's going to impact in but does it concern you at all. That dak is not throwing right now and may not throw much over the next couple of weeks a little bit a little bit and i say that because i'm someone who's pretty invested in this offense i've been talking about all offseason. They've drafted a lot of teams. Obviously and i have a lot of cowboys on it for a variety of reasons. So i want them to be healthy. I want them to be on field. Because that's the key right. It's not just that coming back healthy. It's the targets around him especially the offensive line. Because we don't really talk much about that. We talked about how all that time i seen. The offensive line was missing as well. So you want to hear that. These guys are healthy and they're ready to go for week one because field. There's so much potential here. I mean to your point. I mean think about this so we're starting to talk about. There's a seventeenth game now right. Yeah and what that means for the record books right what matters right which records are going to be set and one of them. That's come up. Is six thousand passing yards dak prescott last season through week. Four was on pace for seven thousand yards. No he wasn't past seven thousand yards. Not kidding that's a. Pc was on got there but it would have fallen off. Maybe with that defense. Anyway that just shows you the level. He was playing last season. So it me bothers me for sure. I want him to get healthy. You want him to get out there because the potential for this offense is so massive so right now we i don't think you or i or many people on this show are drafting and most of our leaks right now. We're going to be drafting much closer to basically the week before labor day is when the bulk of my drafts take place with a couple after labor day itself. So we're a couple of weeks. A few weeks away from early diving in into drafts. So we have some time here on dak prescott. But if you're drafting right now. I think you have to bake into the potential. That dak shoulder could be an issue for the season. The problem having right now. Mike is that i don't know how much of an issue so i don't know if he's my quarterback five right now my rankings. I can't tell you that. I moved them down at quarterback eight nine or ten. I will just say that if you are concerned. There are enough good quarterback options that you can look elsewhere but go ahead go ahead. Sorry i was just going to say and the board plays out as you have mahomes and allen. Then you've tyler murray and it's like around later becomes dak in the march axe and maybe were leaning dak. Maybe now you'll lean lamar or you wait. Another reysen around is russ. It's aaron rodgers. Justin herbert missing somebody in their brady. And he's only been around for another round or two but anyway you got some options in that facility. That are fine. I think jack has a much higher ceiling. We're talking about a guy who again was. Qb five when he played last season. And don't forget the year before he played the full season he was. Qb too right. Yeah so this was kind of out of nowhere that he exploded onto the fantasy seem right. He's been doing it a long time value with his legs. We're gonna talk about supporting cast. I mean there really is a lot of upside there but again right now. If you're a little nervous there are guys that have similar upside that are in the same range that you can. You can kind of go that to her. So what i'm hoping for. Is that a couple of weeks from now when we are doing draft. Maybe even three weeks from right now that this shoulder issue the concerns have been quelched and right now. Nobody seems to be raising too many concerns about what it will mean for week one and i'm not trying to tell you that he's going to be fine but they don't seem to be legit concern about being impacted by this going into week. One so along those lines of credit. Drafting you massage. If i were drafting right now and you just paint i mean the guy is an absolute fantasy star. There's really very little downside to dak prescott an injury and the upside as you mentioned this tremendous separate apart from the fact that he's very talented players..

That's the motorcycles, which includes motorcycle patrols could be put on hold and well, it will be put on hold it. Part of this budget process. In a statement from the Austin Police Department, says staff reallocations ordered by the council are playing a major role in this, but the Place Association president Qian Cassidy, speaking with cave You says that has more to do with the lack of a cadet class everybody that worked school zones and there won't be anybody left to work the high speed roadway, so that's why we're calling on the governor.

They told the students to stop using pronouns like he and she so it's not to offend transgendered students. However, few of them there are it seems that nobody could stop the diversity office from enforcing this left wing claptrap. Well, some conservative lawmakers in the state had enough. They offered a bill to strip the diversity office of half a million dollars money without operating funds. University office radicals might get the hint they've gone too far. These conservative lawmakers operated out of intelligence guided by experience. They knew that whenever funds are cut liberals raises think so.

In addition to reining in the out of control Diversity department, these conservative legislators also took care of something else.

I'm not high on that pick Continue. May I think you mentioned a key here? New York. Neither one of you guys point in big markets. Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Tennessee. I can't imagine. I'm sure you have friends or teammates who did. But the spotlight playing it in New York the quarter. I mean, there are iconic positions in all of sports, the quarterback of the New York Jets as much as they missed over the years. That's an iconic position that Zach Wilson is walking into. Right now. They just drafted Sam Darling, like three years ago, set out with the old in with the new to your to your question. Play with Washington one year and there was such a big difference between best market in that market and the expectations that constant, the press coverage was the pressure was always there. And you know, you hear you had, like two or three peat riders in the locker room. Couple cameras there. You're like Holy man. Well, you know, every practice every single one. The owner showing up it was like man, This is a lot of pressure. So it When you get drafted and then New York I visited New York when I was a free agent, and I was just like, Oh, hell, no. I want a part in a play. No way. No, you can have that enough. What? Give me big picture here. Both of you having experienced the league when you're a rookie. When you first walk in you think you may have it figured out what you think it was one way in college. How different is it right away in the NFL and what stands after one of those? This isn't you know, we're not in Kansas anymore Moments as a rookie in the NFL. I mean to me, it's It's the speed. That's the precision. I'm one of my first observations. After my first camp was You know, in college guy would make a great catch and everybody would jump up and down stuff. And that was made like every play in the NFL, and the window was fit into a ball word Normally in college, you go. Oh, my God. How did you get that was every single play real quick story about it on my first minicamp. I'll never forget this is on my mind is I'm swamped or internal Early's defense's Don't know anything right? And I look up right before we're getting ready to go out. And there is Neil O'Donnell, who was the backup quarterback with the Times. He played about 75 years in the league, and he was in his full football uniforms swinging a golf club and I had my my 25 inch binder on my lap. Just please, God, let me remember something here. But that's what the NFL is about. It's about getting that experience and it's the knowledge of guys. You have success. The ones that know the game, not just the great athletes, but the difference. I remember at the university, Tennessee. We had this saying, if we're even we're leaving. Well, when I went through my first practice with the Bengals, if you're even you ain't leaving. That guy is still there by the fact he made changes on exactly so. Everyone's dynamic, But like Rocky said, once you learn how to play once you want you're in a position where you're dictating opposed to your you're in a position of action versus reaction. Now I could make as a receiver. I could make you move your hips. I could maybe make you move your feet. I could make you open the gates for for my advantage.

I think it's a situation exactly how you said I think marshall is trying to figure out if this is a you know a move that he could swallow no he had some conversations with my marks. He told me last night that he intends to talk to coach meal and some of his former or a college coaches. But you know. And i told him. I'd say hey you're just gonna have to you know commit yourself to it and that's the way marshall is anything he does. He commits himself. So i think he's weighing his options right now seeing that big If he put the golf clubs down. And i always joke with him because that's another situation where he was the worst opera ever seen in my life and he didn't like them he committed. Now he's one of the better golfers out there so if he decides this is something he wants to do he'll be good. I think you know. And i saw your your post. You talk about him. Being you know football guy. He's he's probably one of the more knowledgeable football guys. I've ever been allowed yet. I have no doubt and we all joke about having to give up golf but to your point. Here's a guy who had a stutter. Who became rochester. Who jerry clinton. I think made fun of his golf game and then marched At pissed off bought clubs and got really good if he does this I don't think he's gonna half asset. I think he's going to be intense Think he's got a lot to give to. I think the kids would. I think he'd be good at it. I don't know if he wants to do it. I got this feeling if he does it because he always had a great take on everything. And as i said no frigging tell you his opinion. He'll tell me how wrong. I am not wrong. You are but i think he might be good at. I think he look. I think in a he has equality to evaluate talent better than most. I mean i personally. I think that you know he'd be perfect to run an nfl team. Because i think he's got some really good qualities as far as evaluating talent. Which is you know really. I would say sixty to seventy five percent of the nfl if you do a really good job of evaluating talent in new. Can you know hit more picks than you miss on and you'll some of the right. Coaching staff I think that's that's the successful team. But i think with marshes ability to evaluate guys. I think he'd be perfect because it's a lot easier to coach a kid. That's a good. That's a good player than than the opposite than then the contrary so a lot of these teams you know say. Hey this coaches this coaches The best coach in. Nfl coach is not good. I think it starts with the talent. Those because i think you could coach a bunch of the guys that played for rams when they had the greatest. Your s now. To knock on mike martz dick meal. But it's just a lot easier to put guys in situation to be successful. You have better players. And i think that's the situation with alabama. I have a lot of respect. The nick sabin but he signs more five star guys than any other universities so think he showed win national championships at the pacers. When aren't final thought. Give me a draft a memory where you felt like everybody's wrong about your guy. They didn't take early enough. Maybe slipped into the middle rounds or you ever have draft day like man. Everybody's gonna regret skip it on my guy or they're all pass not on. They're going to eat it later. I think it was the sandy. Marsha was drafted in the first round We had a receiver that lately with marshall at san diego state. Darnay scott I was thinking. Darnay would be mid first round pick in at work cincinnati so hard to big marshall with the first fit I didn't realize they were watching more film on his team at san diego state than a bid on him because they had already made up their mind on dan wilkinson so i would say it's dr night. He didn't go in the first round. He wound up being the first in the second round to cincinnati in a had a really really good career with them. So i would think that's one One of my members a saint louis. Kit will franklin's uncle. If i'm not mistaken darnay snap i think number a great career. Over four hundred receptions of the bengals will rocky good to catch up. Good luck jomar chase. Maybe we'll catch up with him after draft and enjoy the night cleveland. Thank you always a pleasure man. Well i really loved. Hearing those stories about the stephen jackson pick Also the fact. That marshall faulk goes to the colts number two overall and they had no clue that they were taking him that the agent and the player had no clue. The team was about to make that pick. I don't think that happens anymore. With all the social media and the amount of coverage might have pre-draft coverage that takes place but fascinating story. And i am also intrigued by this marshall possibly becoming a football coach and gets back in the game who knows maybe ends up back in an nfl front office. I'm not sure if it will happen to put the clubs down. I joked about it rocky. Joked about it He loves to golf and doesn't need to do it but i think it might be a challenge.
