Good to be a guy lied their pleasure to bring in Paul find bomb every week here with us in the fall find bombshell and this week Paul you Angola can have two things. Can comment on one of them is obviously your appearance you guys look so alike sometimes confuse you want for my yellow top and the other. All your dancing and it was just a little bit but it was yeah a couple of political. Why are they gonna something might. You know it did it serves me right on them the moment I jump on the Brian Kelly trade it crashes in. Being male fool out of but that's OK I'm not mad at Brian Kelly I'm I'm done with him. But it was fine you know I that it. It was it would we're up there and then I ask somebody about 7 o'clock or visit is or what around the Jonathan Vilma had blogs are. We waited delete he can wake up and we got it and I don't know why I started dancing greening I have no earthly idea I went and like my bar mitzvah party mode and literally went crazy. Actually got up there was going to walk off the senate that would. It was actually pretty fun I'm not shocking that Vilma guy from the U added just have a had a turnover Jane hang around just so that game certainly. Miami tip your cap to them or what will talk them but. We're we we may get active they can finish this off. In Auburn the first two loss team in the final four what they did to Georgia Paul and that game coming up after they both have their semi by this week Alabama. And Auburn before the Iron Bowl. And how well they've played especially at home man you got to think long and hard about how that game's gonna go on a couple of weeks. You do we are we get our showdown their Friday and you could feel it up and Auburn a thousand times for for big games in and listen everybody thinks they have the the magic. Potion bit but Auburn really does that place that the crowd had a lot to do with it and once. Once Georgia started self destructing and they made so many mistakes Auburn just went on a roll for that. That 23 point land which by the way it was really a little bit more like thirty Georgia got a cheap touchdown. At the end and and that's one reason Georgia got knocked down. In the polls people wanna say that they they made mistakes and they're really better but it on the biggest stage since Notre Dame. They failed miserably now. Again they they they can work their way back in his everybody has been saying ad nauseam they do with Kentucky and bad Georgia Tech next week which has again they've lost two out of the last. Three years. I believe so did they they they won't get back to the championship game they're there already signs of that now will they played Auburn or Alabama. Oh my god I've covered that. A million Auburn Alabama games. It usually goes according to plan but this is the first time Alabama has. Has a bin in this game a long time were word from some of their own fans are doubting the ability for the credit for the Crimson Tide to an unsure when you. When you have Saban tomorrow he'll he'll make up. A strong case for why arbor news should be favored the Alabama will be favored if. You know it's it's a fascinating scenario down there what Georgia lost in that game was the ability to lose the SEC championship game and be in the discussion. Auburn doesn't have that ability with their two losses does bam bam bam beats Auburn and loses to Georgia as the SEC get two teams and. Possibly. I mean I did they think there is a scenario you need immediate move Washington had a way of price quite frankly with Michigan and Ohio State left I don't think that's going to be a big deal. So they really get into a game to a question of in Miami has a one loss team possibility I think they are. And that is the loser is a second team in the SEC. I'm I'm from Alabama isn't pretty good shape though. And I'd I think Alabama needs to get to the championship game. And yeah I I think they can get in but you're good to go look at it what we did you clams and the number two team in the country. With a loss. On the road to Syracuse you're gonna tell me that's a better lost in losing to a top five top six Georgia team not not not a chance of that. As far as I I know one when the first rankings were to come while we are all talking about Wisconsin and man they could be undefeated through and left out of this thing now worth three rankings in. They're sitting at number five still undefeated take got a ranked Michigan team. They could take out a ranked Ohio State team in the Big Ten championship. What are you saying now if they run the table and are thirteen and are they in. The final four I believe they are it's it's hard but yet you again you know they were they will pick up all the all the data points as the famous thirteen data point at the end. Which could get their man but if you if you reach you look at it now something's gotta give of and you know Miami with a loss or Alabama with the loss. You know if it would it would be helpful of Oklahoma got out of the way. But I would say they're pretty close to being in even though a week ago I was. Saying the antithesis. Is there anything to be shed for USC on it was Rick Davis who brought this up. Last night and your friend and hours Booker McFarland just created a couple of minutes ago a scenario. Where time Clemson wins out. Bam a went out and Oklahoma wins out. Who becomes the fourth team at that point is it Ohio State is at USC is it a one loss to Miami I think those that's an interesting question. Yeah it is. You know the Ohio State push I don't really get everything they they dropped a game by 31 I mean you have to pay for your losses. Especially that badly so I wouldn't take them too seriously now as soon as I say that southern cal. As you know go I just got destroyed. And Notre Dame you know that's probably a better Lawson then that what Ohio State suffered so. I would probably give NCAA. Raiser she thin edge over over. Over Ohio State. But in the end I I think one of I think you goad you go back into the ACC the SEC number two team. And I asked her to this earlier referred team like Central Florida. And for those fans of the non power five teams that are all last game. When do we get to play with the big boys when do we get to see that we belong with those guys is there an answer to that. No in and I heard what he said and then it's you have to figure out a way to to play someone really important. And yet again when you're US that you that you see out nobody really wants a player anymore. The so I I don't think they have any path you know Boise who came the closest. Because they they played a legitimate schedule. You know they played Virginia Tech they played Georgia. But I as much as I hate to say it that it could you just hate to be dismissive of a great program and a great coach you've probably all be there much longer. I don't think they have any any any right to be on. Call and and we have not talked to you since the firing of Butch Jones which of course was. A foregone conclusion that we didn't know it would necessarily happen when it did. I always think there's significance not only two things that happen but when they happen. So how did you read the timing of this and what is your sense of who would they what an and they are dream scenario. What is their list looked like. Yeah I would say they had to get rid of and after losing badly to Missouri today there was their choice. You have having kind of not so a couple of times this fall there than it if you took a vote of the people it would be Jon Gruden are heard what John said today I was actually expecting him to. To say no to giving Sherman esque response. But but I think grid and you know Greg better than I do about it but my sense is he looking more toward the NFL than he is toward college football although there are connections. Two to Knoxville but right now it looks like you. Dan Mullen would be pretty high on the list. He's faced he's a safe choice I don't mean that they're they're they're they're settling but it Dan is a very good coach but he would make the transition. Better than most of the the Chip Kelly rumors I still don't completely buy although. People in Florida are are talking about him quite a bit Scott frost is name comes up. And then you know where where where else do you go Justin went today I mean might Gandhi's name has been linked to that job. But I think Dan Mullen right now is probably in a really good spot if he wants to leave Mississippi State. And I Paula listen we've so enjoyed this this season last season and Q what are more recent trend but a really good one it's been a lot of fun doing this every single weakened and we're both look forward to continuing to do it on down the road thanks fall. Greedy I wanna say this what would Dave Roberts called me a year and a half ago and asked me to be irregular on this show and it was a truly one of the of the biggest shocks in an honors and thrills of my career to be apart of the greatest do you go in and mean radio history so guys all the best to agree on though you're going to be great but I'm gonna miss being on what both of you. Thank Paul thank you very much Paul always appreciated that golf I'm Obama this. Budget by Goodyear tires as hardworking as college football's most blimp where the athletes Goodyear official sponsor of the college football playoff iMac got a two weeks look forward to now and how that that the school year ago we got a little nervous here. Right field DH just waited the bills announced Nathan and Peter men will start at quarterback this Sunday then Tyrod Taylor to the bench. Back to back bad losses for the Bill Hall is he heard that I don't know what. Detailing get hurt and I came this week won't go the way that bush had an attitude your informants. Said that five and for now though they were five and two they were everybody's darling and got blown out by the jets and and they got annihilated by new war a lot of what a winning record and admit the negative net points on that adapt. That's good series a member of the old we were torture is going to be able flow in the beginning you know what's. Contract and all that and and and where he was gonna end up and of course Tyrod Taylor is the reason they allowed guys rushing touchdowns to the saints this and he's exactly right and around c'mon of course there was there was whose fault it was in your radical change to court wasn't doing enough on the sideline for that.
