Mumm Napa Brut Prestige Review
"It's David again from cheap wine by the.com. The other wine review that we put on the cheap wine fiber.com website and I noticed lately though. I'm kind of going upscale. Everything is Bordeaux or Napa or Rushing River and well, I kind of did that again? Let me grab the bottle and see what we got here. It's it's not expensive. But it it's Mom Napa Brut Prestige and sparkling wine from Champagne house in France, but they've been in Napa since the seventies so it's fifty years. It's been a long time. It's half half 45% Chardonnay 45% Pinot Noir and the rest is a little bit of a mix of you know, greed. It's just you know, Greenfield a green show your same thing. And what was the other one, you know, what a you know, what is the the hidden grape & in Champaign? It's in all the champagne. You don't know it. So there you go, and it's from Napa and it's one of the kind of weird things because this is a Napa sparkling wine and not a French champagne. Normally when you drink Snapple why that's oh it's Napa except when champagne and then it's oh, it's Napa off cuz it's not you. Hey, we're gonna go get into that because I think that's wrong. So what we have here is like I said, it's a little bit of a dead. Grapes that are approved of champagne right here is a couple of other groups really get used aren't here but it's got the main ones they use 45 different growers in Nampa all day from parts for the line and that's really typical. They make champagne. I know one of the leading Champagnes, you know, the uses a hundred different Growers to Champaign most champagne house and then champagne don't really have much Vineyard Holdings. They they contract long-term contracts for all other groups. And you know, that's how they do it. That's how they're doing it. That's how I am doing it here. I know it's like they've been the emphasis 1970 and they've been in Champaign since like 1827 or something. So these are people know what they're doing. They brought them know how to California even though like most of the American sparkling wine bubbly houses the schramsberg Gloria Ferrer Iron Horse are Sonoma. I guess there's some up in age, you know, they bring their expertise to Napa and this is a year and half second fermentation year and half the first fermentation is in mosul stainless steel and then they put some of it in French Oak barrels to give it that kind of thing going that they blend in. I mean the other surprise champagne house all Out their style ahm how Styles there's the first fermentation for the most part was where all the tricks are. There's just there the little bit of folk a little bit of stainless steel and all the other things had picked their drapes and all that are all in there. So you're getting a real bump style especially after fifty years and now but I mean, they they've come to get their own state of Mississippi cuz in my hand here, I mean, they probably get me a maid came with the French style. They probably created some Napa style go along with it. And here's what I have to say. Very expensive champagnes are Sublime. They're just crazy of every you ever get to drink it. But which I do every once awhile, you know, sometimes our ten years in bottle. I mean and they're so the spinach ten years needs in the bottle and they have all these exotic production techniques and these things are crazy expensive and just crazy delicious, but they're regular ones are kind of reachable this thing. I found out I think Seventeen or eighteen dollars Napa Brut Prestige Brutus, not too sweet. You are not miss out from Champagne. I mean in a blind tasting most people unless there's champagne had know these things. Most people wouldn't know the difference and this is Anna like half the price unless off. I mean, they'll be cheaper come December when all the champagne zor sa land they'd probably make after sales but you know regular time $18 for what is an excellent choice. It's delicious. It's balance is pretty good at this you wouldn't know the difference. So just because it doesn't have champagne or label has Napa who how bad could it be that has Napa on the label.
Monica Royer, founder and CEO, Monica Plus Andy
"Hey Everyone Danielle. Here I'm excited to get into this episode with our guest and curly will be back next week today Monica royer joins us on skimmed from the couch. She is the founder and CEO of Monica Andy An organic baby and children's clothing company. Monica had the idea to launch her company literally from the hospital after she gave birth. Who've with the mission of being the most thoughtful children's brand ever created and as we'll get into entrepreneurship definitely runs in her family Monica. Thank you for joining us today welcomed skin from the couch Danielle. Thank you so much for having me. I'm super excited to be here. Thank you. So I just WanNa say that like literally I think one of the days after I had told our team that I. Was Pregnant I had a call with Monica and I was like only slightly panicked about the fact that I was maybe a first time mom and really had no clue what I was doing and was like everyone keeps telling me I need a lay at and I don't even know what that is and Google that and Monica was like such a calming presence and literally knows this case inside a now. Thank you so much what we're is really excited to welcome people into Motherhood, in new, parenthood. So congratulations to you. Thank you. So let's start with an easy question scam your resume. To actually take back to what you can't see on link to in, which is that I came from a very hardworking family and so at the age of twelve, my mom was the manager, the ultrasound department at Good Samaritan. Hospital in Downers Grove and she's like you're gonNA start volunteering. So she went an air sign me up I was working at the front desk outpatient registration and that at fourteen she was like job permit time. So we went I started stocking the shelves at now very defunct retail store of which I. Can't even remember the name but work ethic with something was really important to my parents and so I spent all the time before I graduated from college with all of my summer jobs in the hospital. So physical therapy like you name it I worked all around the hospital when University of Illinois in Champaign Urbana graduated and I immediately got a job in the pharmaceutical industry. So I spent the first decade doing absolutely nothing related to what I'm currently doing but I worked at both Pfizer and Novartis for that decade which was. Very different from currently in that I launched. Monica. Nandy officially in July of twenty fourteen. So now this is my new baby and what I've been most recently working on what's something that we can't Google about you or look up on Lincoln I originally wanted to be a marine biologist. nine or ten old I would have told you wanted to be a marine biologist terrified of the ocean look at seeing but being in it. So that was sort of a non starter, the marine biology career, but I remained totally obsessed with like orcas. Great White Sharks in my very favorite place to travel as the San Juan islands outside of Seattle, marine, biologist, and pharmaceutical industry. This is all very, very interesting. So we're GONNA get into your family. And the support system that you've built around you. But I when I was talking to you a few weeks ago, you were talking about your mom and how her story had such an impact on you tell us about what it was like growing up in your house. What kind of expectations were there? Yeah. So my mom is an immigrant from India. She moved here from India's her dad was dying of Emphysema and some money home when she was nineteen. Years old as I have always a revered both of my parents Andy I always say that will never win the lottery because we did the first time by the parents that we got. So a massive amount of respect for both of them. But my mom, there was something about the family that she came from her family was very matriarchal in in a society in India that was much the opposite in. So my grandfather had nine children altogether the first. Five of which were girls as in India, like at that time most people wanted boys but my grandfather really cherish having girls in he educated each of them like they were boys and so when my mom came here, she came here on sheer well of the education that she had received and so education was of the utmost importance specifically for my mom mom was the only person in her family to marry outside of her Indian cultures or a dad is. Know his ancestors from European background and so my brother and I were so close growing up because we were so different from everybody else we were between world instead of fitting into any world in particular and so I think that unique experience really shaped the adults that we became.
Concerns grow as campuses become the new Covid-19 hotspots
"Of the biggest sources of concern right now, our colleges and Universities University of Illinois urbana-champaign was heralded as one of the most comprehensive corona virus plans in the country which included testing more than forty thousand students. Twice a week researchers had anticipated seven hundred positive cases in the entire fall semester. But instead in just under two weeks of classes there have been more than seven hundred cases. University of Wisconsin in Madison. was forced to move all classes online and quarantine students after their outbreaks or passed a thousand cases in just a matter of days university North Carolina in Chapel. Hill. Went to all online instruction days after students return after nearly two hundred cases popped up almost immediately and the theme in all these cases that while universities might have plans to control the virus. And control things in dorms and in in faculty rooms and things like that. College students do a lot of socializing off campus.
Virus-Infected Bees Practice Social Distancing
"If there's one thing we know about viruses it's that they love to spread the novel. Corona virus is happy to use US humans as its host other viruses fancy bees but like us B.'s. Fight back in the case of one particular virus called Israeli acute paralysis. Virus study shows honeybees. Actually use a form of social distancing to prevent transmitting the infection within their own colony of course not to be outdone. The virus manipulates the bees in a way that spreads the infection to the colony. Next door move studies in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Honeybees live in large communities that contain tens of thousands of related individuals in close quarters so researchers got to wondering how can keep infections from spreading like wildfire while a graduate student. At the University of Illinois Champaign Urbana Tim good not developed an automated system for continuously tracking the behavior of thousands of individual bees and he watched what happened when he introduced infected bees into the hive. Entomologist Adam Dozo. Who worked with good Described what they saw. We found in this study that within their own Colin context when they are interacting with their nest mates usually they're sisters. Infected fees experience fewer contact behaviors fewer mouth to mouth feeding contacts than bees. Who are not infected. The researchers also saw the same sort of social avoidance when instead of infecting the bees with virus they artificially activated the bee's immune system so the behavior is driven by the virus but by the bees own immune response which Dole says make sense if honeybees are going to protect their colony in their queen from disease sick. Bees need to keep their feelers to themselves. They have to they live in these really large colonies. Where everybody's touching each other all the time. They're all closely related joke. That honeybees have been doing social distancing for millions of years at the same time beezer under no pressure to keep infections from spreading to other colonies. And that's where the virus gains the UPPERHAND. Amy Jeffrey who worked on the project. As a graduate student found that the guard bees from other colonies were actually less aggressive toward incoming infected bees than they were to uninfected bees as a result that infected beezer accepted into the colony at about twice the rate of control bees or immune stimulated B.'s. The virus it seems alters the chemicals that bees produced to communicate who they are and where they're from and so we think that One way that the virus could be gaining entry to these other colonies is by changing the bees physiology in a way to make it more acceptable to other colonies on guard bees. Let's bad news for beekeepers who tend to keep tens or even hundreds of hives right next to one another to really ripe situation for bees to be able to move between colonies relatively easily and bring pathogens and parasites along with them. Seems you gotTa Carefully Mind Your Beeswax. And keep kept colonies. Healthily socially distanced
Red-winged Blackbirds Understand Yellow Warbler Alarms
"Brown headed cow. Birds ARE OBLIGATE. Brood parasites that means. They lay their eggs in the Nestle. Other birds leaving all the hard work of incubating the eggs and feeding the chicks to somebody else. Luckily many of those other species have evolved. Some anti parasitic defenses yellow warblers for example produce a certain type of call to warn other warblers about nearby cowherds. Researchers call it. A seat call is working on the yellow warbler and whenever we were doing seat called playbacks to the yellow warblers the Red Wing. Blackbirds gap showing up. That was truly a discovery. You know sort of this momentum that allowed us to to explore this question even further ecologists Mark However from the University of Illinois at urbana-champaign who ran the study. The yellow warblers seat call is called a referential alarm call because only produced for a single threat. The Brown headed cupboard and in response to the seat gall the female yellow warbler incidents attacking or mobbing the cupboard. She sneaks back to her nest and sits on a tightly so as to prevent the cupboard from being able to lay a parasitic gag. Red Wing Blackbirds. Which sometimes nest near. Warblers do not produce referential alarm calls but it turns out that they can eavesdrop on the yellow warblers calls and they respond to the seat calls the same way they do. The sounds of cowardice themselves. The results were published the Journal. Communications biology so red winged blackbirds perferred nest near Yellow warblers since the warblers provide additional vigilance against Brown headed cowherds. But it's probably a two way street from the literature. We know that yellow orders do better when they nest near Red Wing blackbird territories and that makes sense because the red wings are really aggressive. If you walk in bed off full of Red Wings you actually get physically attacked by the redwings. So they are not intimidated by large editors and so Make sense out for them to nest near the the reading. The researchers say that this is the first known evidence of animals eavesdropping on anti parasitic referential. Alarm calls these birds yellow warblers reading black birds. You know they speak different languages. They understand their own. Communication signals and systems are and what we discovered. Here is basically a bilingual. A Red Wing. Blackbird that can understand the vocalisations systems and the communication systems of another species. Young birds learned their vocalisations much. Like young humans learn languages and future research however hopes to understand the weather. The birds rely on the same underlying neurobiology to understand the calls of other species as they do when they hear the sounds of their own species. And what that might mean for our own efforts to learn additional languages.

"In Champaign and also all across the United States and the world and that's they're they're researching treatments and therapies and they're getting closer there are two or three that have been in trials even now one of which seems more effective than others but we won't really know until we get there full results of those tests but the truth is that we're going to rely upon them to help us with treatments once we get treatments I think all of us will feel a little bit of relief that we know that we can save lives we know that we may be able to you know bend this curve even more and then of course finally getting a vaccine to protect people entirely from it will be the most important thing we can do how much money are we taking out of the state's rainy day fund to help medical facilities and testing centers so I think many of you know that the state for many years didn't have much of a rainy day fund and I I want to say that we've worked hard so far I've been in office now fifteen months and we work hard to to look at ways that we could build up that rainy day fund well now as you can imagine in this crisis there's no way to build up that fund it's a very very small fund in the state of Illinois having said that that the all the states in the United states need help from the federal government that's why you've seen in some of the stimulus packages for example support for unemployment benefits unemployment insurance as one example but we're all going to need help with our state budgets because revenues are declining in every state as we have had to you know slow things down to keep people at home but also we've seen that a an increase in expenditures because we have social services that we want to make sure we're providing for people who may be suffering economically financially from this virus so we we have a lot of needs I would say that we can't meet with the rainy day fund in our state and so we're gonna do everything that we can to meet those needs no matter what and this will have to be our last question is there somewhere people can call to denounce if their place of employment is open and they don't think it should be I would encourage people to call the department of commerce and economic opportunity we have a hotline where people can find out if their business is in does in fact meet the requirements of an essential business operation in the executive order it and I don't happen to have that number in front of me right now but we I will make it available all certainly now to tomorrow since I didn't have it with me today but you could just look up the number of the department of commerce and economic opportunity called the general number they will direct you to the hot line or you can go to our website and I do want everybody to have this website coronavirus dot Illinois dot gov that will have the updates from all of the for press conferences that we've had all the announcements that we've made the phone numbers that you need to call if you need unemployment you need health care or if you want to find out the answer to a question like whether your industry is covered.

"A call from Linda in Champaign Illinois good evening Linda good evening gentlemen your cast I just want to thank him so much for making this film and I admired justice Thomas for years and years ever since I ever heard of the money was taken from you know when he was confirmed when he was nominated and I'm I'm disappointed that you say that that he's not popular now with people with American people I didn't really realize that that many people had turned away from you know from them like that if you think maybe you could tell us more about that but I mean I don't and also how do we how do we get watch the film Hadley thank you very much sure absolutely yeah we might dress both of those we can repeat what you mentioned earlier about seeing the film and in terms of of popularity I haven't really heard that much one way or the other lately well the popularity thing it's not so much I do think there are a lot of people like your caller like Linda they stick to respect them and I hope they'll go to the film but I think the left of it happen in those attacks continue to attack them yeah all the years honest on the court we have a lot of the cartoons and articles that have come out against the most if it does work and Peter Clarence Thomas cover story of a recent magazine and it's gone on and on and I think it has made people think that because of that there must be something behind me need help charges she has gone on to be wind eyes distant in some ways the Rosa Parks to the sexual harassment movement and leading a group and while I wouldn't designed to deal with sexual harassment and I certainly think sexual harassment hobbled thing and I salute effort to eradicate it about the making of any daily hero involves making Clarence Thomas into a valid now and I don't think the events that's a fairly points in that direction and I think lots of people look at it if I go out of it is there a lot of players who are very strong supplies how much for a lot of people on the left will be class Thomas haters but the people in the middle don't know about him I think the reason as you said earlier Chapman hit he had misspoken and given a lot of interviews and most people let alone know much about him and I think they're confined to believe the negative stories that are circulating and that's one of the reasons we made this known to correct those maps and midcap reactions I don't mind if people see the film and and I'm not agreeing with them but they should at least understand who he is where he came from his story and then the idea is that he believes that even if you choose not to agree with them I mean I went to see RBG about Ruth better Ginsburg I thought it was interesting film I still agree with the jurisprudence so I think everyone because I found that he's an important figure important understand whatever your politics but surely I hope the people of the land and I'm glad she asked how to see it as I said earlier you got on the website justice Thomas movie dot com which you general kindly repeated a few times but if it isn't playing where you are then there is a spot on the website to sign up and we get a big enough group in any area we could I'll make a screening happen there but I appeal to your listeners to actually go I mean sometimes people on the left people may be more sympathetic to stand against Berg they're in the habit of going to movies and they make the movies on left a success and that's one of the reasons why the left owns the culture the people have to go to the movies even if they're driving half an hour I appeal to you to do it so I hope that limit its primary and if it's not I hope that you sign up on the website very good thank you for that this is Tim in Medford Wisconsin hello Tim Hackett even gamble I'm just wondering this is Clarence Thomas talk about or give any opinions of or his personal opinion about Thurgood Marshall the man he replaced the only two African Americans on the court but there to do detailed procedures prudence would be night and day difference that the if the any of the rest of the film well he doesn't talk about Thurgood Marshall much in the in the card at all and the film itself but but I know that he respected Thurgood Marshall as a person they had a long meeting before he you know during this transition period when he was taking it easy but it is the third at Marshall did not support justice Thomas's nomination to take it because of the reasons you just said that they have different jurisprudence have different values you know in some way Thurgood Marshall is typical of the civil rights establishment they condemn justice Thomas and of course it is justice Thomas eluded him as a fellow rights leader who for instance you know that was in the case of landmark cases like brown versus board of education justice Thomas would admire him but but yes the jurisprudence are like that it's like night and day so it's a it's a conflicted relationship with pluses and minuses more to come and will be back on the job ahead of.
Illinois Planning On Reinstating Drivers Licenses for Those With Non Moving Violations
"We're speaking of speaking of a larger cities in the state of Illinois Caroline and she's a Democrat representative lawmaker in Champaign we're talking about this plan to reinstate the driver's licenses of people who've lost them because they had done paid tickets non moving violations lot of parking tickets stack up next thing you know you've lost your driver's license you know it's a little surprised to be Carol I'll get to the criticism of this in a minute is that people evidently were complying with that that is their license get suspended so then they they do stop driving because they don't have a license is that what happens the majority of people not only do stop driving but they also lose their job because most jobs require a light in to work there sh and we saw that in forty two percent of individuals who lost their jobs it was due to suspension of their life some people say I'm I paid my ticket first of all I don't double park when I do I pay my fine and that's the way the game is played why are we why are we giving these people the break that I didn't get well you know it's interesting thing that we start in some of the research that we found not just in Illinois that injures in other places where you have significant income disparity you have to address this as a fair you government not at least of individual should we the moment that we're in right now and today happens to be the king holiday and change your mind that an unjust law is no law at all she and so if you have matched the disparity in income yes one person is Schomburg go L. hurt me because the pay their tickets with no problem but people who are just basically getting to or from work on public transit in trying to make sure they can feed their family on job cannot she hurt them in many many ways that others in Elmhurst the Schomburg may not understand and so it is important for us to look at equity it's important for us to look and stuff this and this was a significant so this issue because the majority of the suspension for black and brown people from the south and west side of Chicago and they were struggling to get from point a to point B. before their ticket or be for this expansion and and I also want to add that the city of Chicago this video Champaign or Urbana who signed it I did a parking ticket that may cost you thirty five cents and I I don't have any quarters mommy right so I spent that go along with the twenty five dollars who decided that that's what the penalty should be in the first place interesting question seven seven three said they can still boot you so that would be up to the municipality if they have a policy that your car sitting there it's got some tickets on it they boot your car that can still happen but you'll you will retain your driver's license do I understand that correctly Carol that is correct however I do believe that again we need to look at books and books is one of those things that I'm interested in studying as red as red light cameras all of the things that suck the kidneys and the cold out of the pocket the poor people we need to look at that government should not and this is the issue of liberty government should not you is the forty to abuse its citizens and this is what those kinda log do it abuse assistance I understand that and I don't even argue that but I do also hope you acknowledge that some of our listeners are thinking the citizens have an obligation to follow the laws and rules that everybody else is it will be more injurious to you if you don't have the means but we should all play by the same rules well we certainly are not playing by the same rules and I know we don't have time to argue that point yeah but clearly there's a disparity in income access and equity that no one can argue on either side of this this so we have to do what we can as legislators to bring justice and equity and balance balance all of the laws that we have been in this case this law as it currently existed prior to the final the bill did not met out equally and it certainly didn't represent justice clan had a question you're on WGN hi glad you're on the air why is it that a person who has the ability to pay the ticket why would they pay the ticket if there's no ramifications just because they're working and have the ability to pay they should feel some sort of just a moral responsibility to pay the debt I mean you're saying that it should be equal you're you're setting up to different levels of law for individuals based on their income and you know in your own words just said because people are poor they shouldn't be able to be struggling well the people who are wealthy enough to be able to pay the tickets shouldn't be penalized why are you setting you're setting a double standard in your own words that you don't want to do hi doesn't make sense why would I want to hold on hold on yeah yeah that's you're point go ahead good girl I actually I actually have an agreement with your caller I believe that people like you and I in your caller who pay taxes for the role that we drag one already that we already provide our income to the government to function and then on top of a government that something called meters are tollway make additional dollars I don't actually think it's right well that's how they maintain the roads I mean not good meters in tolls are going to go away I think that the principal point he's making is that if we're going to have forgiveness for people we should maybe have you know that that that won't be equitable that's not fair either then right I mean if you can't pay okay that's tough for you I'm sorry about that but I can so my the only one that has to pay but but that's not what we're talking about here you still owe the debt the point is are we going to let you keep your driver's license that's what this is about right at and we are going to let you keep your driver's license and I still do have to pay the ticket by the way yeah yeah even though they give amnesty to those who may not have all the money at one point they allow you to set up a realistic payment plan let's think about this previous payment plan if it is Chicago requires you to put down a down payment so it was always back yeah yes your color baby could pay the down payment but others really could not and that is a function of government government decided to put this except the down payment there sh and eight at the conditions for which a person could not pay sh and now we're saying no you cannot spend that like this sh the city Chicago is reforming how it is collecting your parking tickets so yes you still got to pay that parking ticket now well I I completely agree with you about setting a reasonable means for people to pay back if you have a hundred dollars in tickets you should pay a hundred dollars in tickets but it shouldn't now become a thousand dollars because you didn't get it done in time I'd be happy to get there I'd be happy to give fifty the hundred to be honest with you the these ballooning payments I you're right somebody just made that up and you might as well charge people a million dollars Hey Chicago want to charge him a million Bucks and then all of our financial problems will be solved no wait it won't because you can't get a million dollars from people they don't have it yeah I don't have it let's let's do you realize up in bankruptcy court yeah but what about this report but not me what about this Eric you're on hold on a second Eric hold on a second are cold on a second there hello did you get that Eric you have some say on the radio what was your point Eric said the parking meters Carol are there for a reason they're there because you don't you know you need you don't want people to be there all day long it's not just a money maker it's also a way to regulate flowed you understand that I I'm certainly understand that but I think you're you're a collar and others should look a little deeper into who owns the parking meters that is true we we so we should not have sold those things at the sky way along time ago I agree with you on that its it's goes into effect July first is that right representative that is correct that the jury stated putting provisions in place to notify those who would be eligible to have their eyes since reinstated and you go to took that chance July one twenty twenty nice to talk to you we you and I have not met before by the way do you have anything to say I was just reading in the Chicago Tribune over the weekend about how Mike Madigan has this gigantic series of funds that he's able to control and he spent over four hundred thousand dollars in legal fees in the last few months the Tribune has a large editorial it was it yesterday or today saying he should step down from his speakership role do you agree with that you know I have been here I have I'm from Champaign Urbana so I don't I don't get sick of it should be clear here but I have not seen that story I think what is happening in Springfield and you'll see in the spring fashion that there would be many people calling for significant reforms and ethics reforms and I think that will fall in that same category yeah well that's not you saying yes though I'm not saying yes to lose his job just stepped down as speaker you're not calling for that yet home yeah I don't have I have not seen it at all and I have been called for anything at this point but what I am calling for is that there needs to be significant reform and ethics as well as campaign

P. people's interest and get out there and support you're fighting a lot of little be fun three one two five nine one eighty nine hundred if you got a prediction on the red box bowl again as the fighting Illini face the California golden bears or you know any of the any of the bowl games still yet to come in fact one E. is under way it is the peach bowl chick fillet people that is between the top rank LSU Tigers and the fourth ranked Oklahoma Sooners and I think Justin said he pretty made a bold prediction he said that Ellis you wearing fifty up on the Sooners I think this game at least is the way it's playing out right now is going to be a little bit closer than predicted Ellis you just scored it's still in the first quarter you're about ready to go up fourteen seven on the Sooners the but the big one tonight in in our minds Susan second ranked Ohio state at thirteen and no big ten this year taking on three Clemson that's going to be a that's gonna be a big match up it's going to be big and like you said a lot of these these games today really too close to call our I I don't even think he the experts know exactly who's gonna win who's gonna who's gonna make it yeah I I just don't you know the so called the so called experts they didn't really do much by Illinois this year with some other point spreads and how they kind of I guess disrespected them I would like to say well Shalom right exactly so yeah again the marquee matchup is going to be is is going to be huge and it just kind of a little bit of a history of claims and and Ohio state the Ohio state they've got they've got a little bit on the line here not just the fact that they want to win and go on to the national championship but the last time they faced constant was back in two thousand sixteen it was new year's eve out in Glendale Arizona Clemson crush them thirty one to nothing in urban Meyer said after the game not only do we embarrass ourselves in Paris the whole state of Ohio well our you got that right yeah and this is one of their first appearances in this poll are college football playoff to have their own my time I'm talking about Oklahoma part yeah I know that's okay yeah no we're do where does did send stuff to keep track of these days but look that's gonna be a good game of the one that's going on right now is Ellis you and Oklahoma hi you know it's just in these teams are so evenly matched we talked about it earlier I don't think it's you know overstating its when you say that I really like the top four teams this year and as they kinda you know get get themselves into that national championship of formation I think it's some we want to go with I think it'll be Ellis you're not really going out on a limb here because they're also even the match I think it'll be Ellis you and climbs in in the championship game just we think you're racing around so somebody thank I'm going with Justin we have I said I know but just since our fabulous producer he is just a few
