It worked you're wrong round to make all this stuff happen and it's not just about that gained on New Year's night. Right all of it was founded in 1930 baht and the purpose was to promote amateur athletics. And then he should ignore the economy back in those days there wasn't much going along between the Christmas in the and New Year's. And our charter members began an organization that had a raised 30000 dollars to do sir. And it just showed you now how college football at the ball. Everything here that it's constant change you gotta stay on top of every billion in change along with that. And that's our goal is to remain a top tier bowl.

Eight veg out yours say you know a lot of times investors going to be farm and some. Metal building joint all of the side of the road that don't look like much maybe had the meat market attached to it and that's where you'll find the best. Well listened we appreciate you listening and we appreciate you getting in and analysts in Lake Charles, Louisiana is a common make me state. How about Poland that when now from nowhere. You guys have a very nice to us graduates for getting in you know I don't propose must first from my second trip to New Orleans were when his opinion would have told him we went for Thanksgiving one year my mom and I we can get the cargo anywhere really didn't matter my dad my sister up front prayed those two are listing right now because they really be furious with me that. You know they're always I don't wanna be away from home on Thanksgiving how wanna do this in what we're gonna create room and in the French Quarter and it was fantastic but. I was still so many Kentucky at the time solace I because we are there at Thanksgiving Ellis went over and trained Udoh a couple days with the the club team but I'll never forget my mom calling me. Oh probably do about early October. And so while slime from Lexington to go down there a flew back but she called me in its in that was when the drinking age went back from eighteen to 21 at the time. And she called me and she said I've got an unusual request as my Mollison OK what do I needed it she said. Did you find the pink caddy for your sister for for our trip to Thanksgiving to New Orleans a set only coming months she said. Yeah I need you to find if he had. It would not necessarily that so she could drink so we can go to the places to have fallen. Hey listen there it is worth a trip to preservation jazz held a good check all that stuff out New Orleans I'll tell you before we get to admiral quick my first trip to a Sugar Bowl. There was ten of us in a room with two double beds. I had the only two tickets today Alabama Miami game now let's take in the guy the goddess the renew me and my buddy from Tuscaloosa. So we get in there. I knew I would get won the T slaughter for slots in the bad patch is the bottom of the closet. I had to play do you Dallas out it was absolutely outstanding they make fun of that choice when we first got there I didn't have people tripping over me is that heroic and at 4 o'clock in the morning out there and street. Adam from Spartanburg wants to get in a last night Spiegel Steelers game welcome in Adam apria and good afternoon. You to have a great great afternoon about the guys show huge steeler fan man. It did you read I haven't got a chance to listen to you today bit. Did you really think they had to Jews block was that 38 in May not know they outlaw the block but that's a really old fashioned football player not didn't think it was that dirty but not DARPA. About gronkowski what he'd it was look worse than what you Jesus but I didn't write up about them that. It was it was a football play now here's the thing give him twenty years ago nobody makes a big deal about GG's play because. You know unfortunately in this day and age where we're supposed to be becoming more safety conscious at least from the shoulders up that's what made that particular play look bad you know and I mean. Or twenty years ago it Clinton. Yeah I watched bits and pieces of the Beagle Steelers game last night is now set up a new laptop the nets two hours of your life that you always. This morning and when I'm watching on ESPN talking about. Potentially that game last night set football back because of the amount of violence and it and you know what here's the deal this is a growing millions gain that's what appeals to people. They wanna see that hit suit you take it times have your cake you need to. I agree and the other thing I'd want to point out as are our approach on the Ghana. And they and Jon Gruden just. They added to it in its English comic done it doesn't. Like football he should not be calling and it felt gains on Monday night and it. It's just his comments were just wait one sided in. It was a it was the hardest hitting game I've seen. In years in the NFL. I appreciate the call I have dances great call I'll say this rule quit I. Number one I didn't think Judy Smith it was 31 say it looked okay to me it was like in the context that 2017. We should do exactly but the fact that he'd Labonte has Bertha now a guy who's taken cheap shots and everybody around this league. I had zero empathy the one thing zero away from that game last night high school coaches g.'s coaches across the world across the country. Go get film of Ryan cheesy years tackle in show your kids this is not how you make a tackle in the game of football. Did I I'm just fortunate this is spinal contusion. In not going to be worse and I am. I was stake in this doesn't look good his when he immediately reached ailment started grabbing toward that back in toward the legs may and that scared me all right let's go back and opens Daniel wants to talk about the Sugar Bowl debut welcome him. Are you. Your outlook from Michael's whereabouts of both see government Sugar Bowl beat you up a lot of valid or not. I hear a lot of crimson pre ordered a cup record glee club better this year but you don't. Com basically the last two years he beat BP about all understand though not. Selling them and they don't want to hear not who Joseph. In the past two years clips I'll rather beat Alabama in the 08 issue and about it our current. Well not all. In the last two years straight and the tennis in whole well you ready for their first round upon. Implement appropriate given that here today to deal travel. You hurt and angry go to Nick's candy the Eric I need to occur quite. Failure even saved them all ball to right here. All about it thank you can be completely different story out and game. I agree with the rapid clip so much a lot better thing. But obviously these games when you get the amount of talent is going to be on the field is welcomed their attention and I happen to your site and Amare. Or anybody it's just go. Can be a short time be. I think. You perceive the phone call today and there is some truth to that now listen I is very valid point well hold on. I've on the Baylor guy here on the saving guy he Africa hold on. We've had testimony Graham yeah that's the money we've had some clunkers and similar. What we've had some clunkers in that Sugar Bowl and he's had a month to prepay airport. Now I do agree you wanna give you wanted prepare for club or club so what's opponent to have less time to prepare for. Because that benefited Clemson as well going faster. In that team PJ dean really worn down Alabama both years so I think there is some truth to here's the deal. Is much credit is we wanna give to Nick Saban his horse coaching kitchen sit there and turn around and get back on a credit Matt in the courts and coaching staff. With Gavin Sweeney and Brett venables and Tony Elliott as well. Yeah you can in here earlier coming from but it it still doesn't change the fact that. Did when you give. Nick Saban that laundry prepare prepare there's really in my book and in maybe you were different but your Alabama guy. But in my book there's nobody better because when it comes to preparation attention to di tale. All those things Nick Saban in marble is the best in college football and I do agree to an extent that. That's gonna be a little bit different factor this time. In that intimate look and here's the thing about Clemson staff they're gonna get the same amount of time to prepare for Alabama. As Alabama's gonna get for Clemson. I do think though that that is C a it's a point to look out for the B this being a semi final instead of a final this time. That is certainly going to be different I like. I think it would be beneficial. For it let's play devil's advocate here if AM wins. It would be Major League beneficial for Alabama to see George in the next game in Atlanta vs Oklahoma who can raise that pace up because was one consistent theme we've toward this coaches. In that second half of that cheaply to gain the boys got tired yet in a here's the other thing I'll say real quick about Clemson you know I think Clemson is a different team this year nap some people are gonna have their opinions are they better are they worse than last year. I think they're just different than last year and I think it's gonna cost preparation to be a lot differ for Alabama especially defensively. All what Clemson does on office this year instead of the big play. No did Shawn Watson led you know train amend Wayne Gama was his big that thing is anything but. This is a different this is a different MO that Clemson is offensively this year it's not all around the passing game and as Shawn Watson. In and out of pocket I mean it it is completely different and so. I actually think that the way Clemson is structured offensively this year actually placed Alabama's top paper air into their hands a little bit. All right let's get out there bright will continue 844 GS PE SP and when we come back three Heisman finalists will take a look at their numbers and see if we agree straight up with star urging for four GS PE SPN. Hi welcome back again. Get Brady got the phone lines bit it is looking like the University of Arkansas won't mean Chad mores is their next head coach we can also let you know Willie Taggart dill if Florida State is the official. In he will be a nail still 11 AM tomorrow who all right let's go back to the phone lines jet what's the talk Sugar Bowl Jack welcome in. Hey thank you thank you outlook into your talk early there this wonder Anna Chapman a couple things if I'm way out space or not there's that your opinion on that. So. The they talk about preparing a thirty must thirty states prepare for Clemson and Alabama and Saban had vanished. I would agree with that I think there's some validity to that NASCAR coming out aren't so neglected laws. And I think there's some but but I would also say that. Last year remarks at thirty days to prepare. And Clinton did OK there and against big game Bob and Oklahoma they had thirty days were here in the dedicated players since then and there's definitely history that they've been able order. Coach and a pretty good with a month to prepare as well. Jack oh yeah that's category that's kind of a point no of this view. And Clemson split with Alabama and taken to from Oklahoma in the last four years they've taken a couple from a Ohio State I mean he talked in this news is that haven't Sweeney is that program ready to take on so. Listen I'm as it's Koreans in him wide is it gets after spending five and a half years of my dad's money in Alabama. But I'll say that what we're witnessing here in this last four years five years in the upstate is a pretty historic run as well. I'd eaten that's but I do have another take on it this. Playing Alabama and the Sammy verses the final and I think this is where it really comes in is that. Banning Clemson are gonna hit each other artists can be for fourth quarter. There aren't if you saw that game last year you you are there you you heard you saw it take a month to recover from Alabama had a week at Albert. I think Auburn lost that game last week at as much because that would ban the week before. You know they hadn't even thought of that there's a lot of truth in it in that's the thing. The Oklahoma Georgia game is a battle of different wills Oklahoma lights to go fast. I don't wanna call them saw that play softer brand of football also one of those two teams may not come out come out as banged up but you know to. The thing is is Dana Woodson from albums Lou we are you where you rate of fine IE Jack I'm going to be honest with you I've said this it's we left the stadium. January night last year ID want nothing to do what part three this time and quite frankly I don't want anything to do with that now guess what goals sit back and enjoy this. Animated they don't enjoy this year. Right thank you Jackie Richey to get new and Kevin's next Kevin welcome and have to have a good afternoon. Great afternoon. Not trying to today at an outright that Alabama had the extra week off course and has been a preparation we get ready Miami. I don't liners you can't an effort and you can't believe the senator wanted to sit around cool week. He was cracks in his standing opposite they were in the follow or. So happily. Is going to be to the advantage of Alabama to have that extra week an extra time to use it again. I'm not ready to Rose Bowl. In outsource is running again. On the got some of the great quarterbacks you don't even need a nanny or you just say this guy back. I mean that they are. Loaded at run back. Do you think is too much Oklahoma and. You know day Kevin I think in the great front side and that's one of the fascinating match ups to be price because. If Oklahoma gets rolling with baker mayfield who is going to be your Heisman Trophy winner come Saturday. If they get rolling. Can Georgia play catch up with a freshman quarterback with that style that's the question to beat Georgia cannot let Oklahoma. Get out to attend a nother a fourteen to three tight believe it's it's not net DNA with that running game any true freshman quarterback in Jake from to come play catch up. Say I'd the contrast in style strength for strength with Oklahoma's offense and Georgia's defense. That's it. That almost is just as good as sexy as Alabama Clemson a lot of like Matt I'm fascinated by the match up especially. With with what Oklahoma could started to Georgia because. Last time I checked it and look how states not in mid Ohio State had a pretty doggone good defensive line now they've had holes after that. But last time I checked Oklahoma shredded that would pretty good now Georgia shoulder in their front seven. What can baker may feel duped ultimately to me at all Oklahoma wants to win the game comes down to their defense. Do they have any accurate exact now they have played better on deep they have one of the reasons and I'm gonna go against everything that tells you in the world that you need to pick Georgia in this game. The reason I'm gonna pick Oklahoma it's I'm totally going against every train grain possible and picking Oklahoma. And honestly it's just a gut doing it. But Oklahoma is going to have to play with a defense that can get off the field on third down. Because of the fourteen they're the one that does not have a championship level defense clubs and Alabama Georgia they do. I'll say this about the call when he called and said about you know a good thing that Alabama didn't like. Three weeks four weeks what's the difference ultimately at the end of the day you've had a long lay off. I think it benefits the team its played more recently because that long layoff. Lot of times you see a completely different team oftentimes just because sometimes are sluggish they had played so long. So in my book three weeks four weeks it really doesn't make a whole heck of a lot of difference. The fact that Clemson did play in played well. Again didn't hammy but I heard exactly yet listen this much we know will we see Clemson and Alabama. Get together on New Year's night New Orleans it will be the healthiest both of these football teams have been. In some to an injury situation right now all the fourteen there's no question that Clemson right now is in the best helpful. Absolutely all right we'll go out to break will take your phone policy for Ford GSP its prices final segment we're gonna cut him and been loose for daddy Sunday night so as these from Debbie are each guy he can will tell you where you can follow him on Twitter he's gonna finish his final thirty minutes this is straight up with starch. Hi welcome MacKey and final few minutes till the top of hours we are going to be leaving Thursday morning for Philadelphia are price and I were off on Thursday's Richmond and diesel and duty will be here in studio for best game of the year best game of the year Friday will be on radio road there in Philadelphia we're going to be there all day and Albany if it means it's important I I'm with you on this when I would not have thought it. This time last year but you know we're gonna hear from Steve or West Point grad probably every day this week. Talking a little smack price yeah after it. So I think it and then get called. In. Up on earth is a game I well. It up. So for apple while. You out last night out a lot and eat out and call it looks at. Art. All welcomed go out and the other. All it is bad out. What site challenge a chapter two mile race on or Clinton and better patient opted out on. Al a lot better Lorie go to college. Age and it keeps it. Installation on helped guide had to act on. Our country to it was questions cutlery on that. Yup and I'll. In Alsace girl I'll say Steve wrote quake some and I know a lot about is my wife was the staff liaison to the Clemson student veterans on campus at Clemson for awhile. A great organization that you ought not support these guys are at. It. I. Worked on expect. Oh aren't. Quakers and well on the net. Up or eight straight out all can handle this happened last capped a lot about all. They'll I. Know it all go all the art exhibit. OK. And keep hitting a helmet at eight. And more. And so I thought. I'd. But again what all ER eighty. Sat out apps are. All. Like. But you know I capped gains there's no gold and got a mean it ought to eat rye. And that's just cannot compete with. I think Steve emit that it's actually a really interesting topic in question especially like he mentioned her when James he's gonna sit out Florida State's bowl game and it's. There are obviously different reasons. Mom. The big thing is is that and it's at the academy's. View get some practice time it's a little bit different especially like Napster's if you come from the threats prep school. I don't know at the end of the day if I would if I would make that move because you're still gonna get your fifteen practices. Because typically a lot of times. You do what you split practices with the young guys at least at navy I watch these guys do they had to differ practice times were Durham bull crap. They had the younger ones and then they had the the veterans of the year the first steamers and so everybody was getting multiple reps in so. I don't know especially in the spring to win they can come together officially and do work. There's just so many kids that are out and you've just got an abnormally large number players on academy football teams. I don't know of the dean portion I do know that coaches they try and play a lot more bodies but they try to buy one when the date you know they're not throwing in the towel on the army's likable McDowell. Played San Diego State and a navy is not gonna throw in the towel and their bowl game Burke Virginia they're going to play to win. And the other thing is is add that last trip with a team outside. That's when they get to go have some fun you know they're not restricted by he has some of the things on campus and things of that nature Ramey. I can see both sides of the appalachians little thing point is its cars to when gene sitting out for supply if I had the opportunity to sit out a bowl game called the walk ons Independence Bowl I'd be infuriated as a scholarship player. That ball he was named walk ons but not just skid. Did you work that well for Chris McCaffery I don't like those guys putting themselves in their future ahead of that team. That feels like you're turning your back on your team that's my opinion in my opinion only again I don't have a pro career coming up but guess what if you're afraid your gonna get hurt in that game chances are you're afraid your gonna get hurt and something else and that's win. Yeah actually do you get hurt price. See about 4:15 Thursday morning here in our common OK it's. Easy. A state the airport a lot later match our. All right we'll see you I have found wood pin on daddy's son Knight Nat thank you for everything set thieves will come back with this year for the final thirty minutes.
