Looking back to SEC media days here on the Jeff Hawkins showed Jeffrey Wright filling in for Jeff. Jeff will be back on Monday looking forward to you that as well cover as promised now pleased to welcome on. Here's the lead pair of CBS sports covers college football for them also beast we're a network it's SEC smothered and covered podcast. There it feels like. It's that apparently fairly nondescript a fairly. There is a lack SEC media days however does feel like everything's kind of been culminating. If you today would almost stepped to the point. Yeah immediate when Alabama was going in news broke it was I got cents a moment mrs. it's going to be bad because there's no way he'll masculine good because now. Just deflecting and just saying no comment. Is only going to open the door for more questions by people some of whom are in the lawsuit and were allegedly lied to. By the man on stage not feeling great and by the sports information director. At standing next to the man on stage. It's it's gonna be real weird and there's just no there's no positive that can come from it and if your old news. I guarantee them thought popped up do we even other because if you just don't go. What's the harm. I mean. And honestly honestly yesterday when the news of the lawsuit broke it was my first question yes and it is it's it's bad you'd get criticized for it. Is that. Better than getting up there in trading in national spectacle by saying no comment and the answers like both of them nationals spectacles and they're both terrible decisions. When it came down to these things if it was why you win we suck it you know wait for a the thought of Hugh freeze still being head coach at SEC these days. That seem to be like that was the line of demarcation there was no way I thought it initially after reasons there's no way they're going to. Win witness that coach. And that on notice that when the little line that came out they were you on Thursday there was clearly an effort to try and get them theory in the yen. Clintons in use today as well others maybe the thought that maybe some of these friendly. Journalists settlements like the pain now. Certainly wouldn't be there that's not the case and today today they've got to face the music. It to me it seems like they're facing the music. With the backdrop of the theory strategically placed lawsuit that I don't think was about what yesterday. Knows that embarrassment it was about I mean I think part it's about money I mean it's not you know Hugh Hugh Houston that's not here to this because she's a mean. Honestly he's in region is it is contract buyout gotcha yes I mean it he has and so. He's not your rich off but it's about affairs he feels adding more than anything that. That all this prevented him from gaining work. By this misinformation campaign. Which we all know is not true Houston it's not working as a football coach right now for reasons I have nothing to do with what Ole miss has done under Hugh freeze. But. It's a you know he EP you'll slide by BP should feel slighted by them he takes it personally and you know he's just basically go towards dirt which if you followed a pattern to this club is that this you know issue. It's all going scorched earth like Ole miss. In February when they did that weird hostage press conference with no press like. Their goal all in and then when you know rebel rags goes excuse. Mississippi State players like oh this doesn't hate that like there're there are OK with players on other teams going under oath in the case that the earned all of them. It's the most insanely like pressure here write this. Again it's unbelievable likely to get. They start like you start throwing it all of these all of these factors that we know about that goes in the hope that record behind the. Yes I mean it's it's it's so dirty and yet there's. There's like seven different players that we haven't got and I you know I I don't know I don't know I don't know what I don't know again that immediately you mean you know I was kind of what you think if neighboring Muni days there in. Now they have three in the immediate days because you'd better coached 24 hours and now I'm I'm wondering okay. Like. They go through this and then today they just say race like them or. We just had healed but very. I've heard of him and it was this yes and aliases he insists it certainly isn't in numbers. Re integrate them. Gets out there eyes where all baseball. But we just had it on and I asked this question. He's covered all over the SEC's that little us. You certainly ever closer to the east side as well as Auburn in the last. About programs inside. The the programs would have stuck with few reasons. I think you know. The SEC to me there's a there's a power here it's it's Alabama Auburn Tennessee Florida Georgia. You know that those schools LSU. You know going in there though those schools would. Late date there. They'll find that even though few free rapidly without us for a that you freezes a fantastic football and you freeze news. It in a situation you have scholarship restrictions Whittle was one he's the kind of guy who between at reasonably high level. With limited rosters. Or he's done right. You know those others that the bigger schools. Whatever we'll go play. But. Note though lower half of the SEC. I mean especially considering what you had done in terms of on field success. I think all of them would have at least ride like does the bottoms it knows but says whenever. Would of at least try to do on the team you can and that's. Clearly what Ole miss did and it has done. And I mean I'd beat out a way to win. You know there's going to come to collect on world says it's open in the air and say what's best for Ole miss and it may not be you read. That time might be now and I don't know if it is you know and there's a lot he said there's so many other things going on that but it could happen that are. I mean her style to perceived positives for Ole miss but you know things that they could do. Is it at that point would it mean it is it or do you just buy at some point. Would expect to Seattle. Took the exact same thing. Which is you know. It's doubly is littered is you know here's where we stand. And here's what we can say publicly this lawsuit is what it is all saw it. It's obviously ongoing legal matters he can't talk about it. That's what he's going to say that's really the only thing he can't say and again that that creek that. Create more problems because then you have more time for people to ask questions and you have more people more people that are in that lawsuit. To ask so you said you know in the journal's number three what journals number three it's open the main room and says did you like. And you present that you talk about it will. Hugh freeze no journalist number three is that guy everybody watching TV knows who that is like that's a terrible situation for Hugh freeze to be. Because no comment. Late in when you're confronted by somebody. That's. An audience. The fact that like you look out. At least that's what you look at a loss it's clearly strategically laid out it it's clearly designed to show. A pattern of lying pattern of deception in a pattern. That begin with you threes being orchestrator. Since it with the DA's case against the old mrs. Yes there really is what it's the exact it is made its. But. That's where it's win win every once asked what I know is that it that well which side your on his IQ and I've. Give them all answer depending on which side like these idiots are to be an initiative so you don't you know that you know what that indicates. Really that's the situation actually. That was when it's real it's like it's just it's partly what that's like the whole entire thing. Think there are so many layers and flicked on the. I think that this is some of which. Her courses but I like it was which of you're a sequence which I like it if that happens it's that's what happens it's like. Also it's an opera that less sure of course treated. How many times do you have I have considered it like I told you this years ago bill would hear it if your SP. The world the other side it will. They did do it hits it it's just created this to hire buyers and he seems to be. This this lightning rod if we look back into it seems like. The storm just keeps coming up no matter how many times this means that the. No way and let me here's the thing is is they think that but based mean they know that they do have the information to know better. And they ignore it and that's the problem it's like. Either doing it willfully. Because they just don't hear anymore or they're really bad at all of this which I'm I'm I'm a firm believer in what looked. All of this is not doing me. It is great scheme of things what they're accused of doing it ain't that they feel like it's not. It's not massive write as you have not talked about it yet they were doing something different pop or sign it when they go up against the big thing is every single time they generally strikeout yet I mean it's it's. It's not you know it they're just really bad. Yes very sloppy there really that bad and you know I've said this year's docket touchy because you don't you just don't go bad. Not yet night and that's that's what they've done it seems like it was like to me that they were like it Internet startup company. That day wind tried to go to become do it and they never liked understood that there's a process. That at that goes with. But coming you know welcome to rule over night or how to play the game you learn how to run your business but yet they tried to go in they want and though that's the others like the old aside does here that. They hear that they were batted that they were sloppy that they they left a horrific paper trail and that they had opportunities get out of this they've chosen not to. Yes and well I mean look it's AM. That's why it's so hard to address because it it's so it was so we used to eject button and you can. Like human fine. Probably get out of that without a second letter. You can't get out of it without a scholarship. Like it or the loss of act that stuff but yet it yet like the academics we have for that big like that period Saunders stuff like. In thought it's all over and. They exist today. It was is is just slow burn it was justice will earn. Is it like here's the world talking about this and this is giant scandal. I don't and it's not it didn't have to eat they had to go to. A kid that sign with Mississippi State. To be able to get their star witness. And like what he didn't know what they allegedly gave him against anything like. From what we did they give you guys have covered birchard. That's kind of on the you know whatever. Age. It's. Apparently of CBS sports joining us here as he sees another whoever is the black death she chickened out. That last will be the other topic of the week has been let's lay it is as it physics is fixated bat for SEC football. Now is an immigrant puberty the patriot. You know you like that that you needed. Team that. Everybody it matters you know so much if you leave without them it not been. Any easy chance you know. It's still matters. To beat them it still madly even look at you know the Bible differently but look at it out to Los album team it was. You know still matter is words you know that he. You know it's. It's good for it enters a cup which appeared mostly have six different years. Bored with it but. It does sort of make it hard to focus on what matters in the season. Now we know Alabama matters whether others who whether he'll meet or not. We know beating them. Act like that early mid 2000 what we pat Abbott Egypt in every year just the there was probably a you know 56 teams who want it. Q if the leak was as Apple's now just it was is fallen but where as. Beardsley of CBS sports joining us there we think Tom on average time.
