Yeah what's up everybody it's dirt when I thank you for tickets in time out to listen to be podcast of our show brought to buy less Schwab tires doing the right thing since 1952. Of the bridge doom. Was mellow football resume here. Okay. Okay. Most mellow Britain's brand news. Sooner before. This is a college kickoff weekend edition of dirt and spray you brought to you by rob really colors like whenever your mountain climb on college golf weekly. Good dirt and spray gun ten AB. And we're kind of stuck in this this whole conversation. Of what's socially acceptable what is nine. And I feel like this is kind of the director and we need to go and we're not we won't Philly cheese sideways but we have what I like Guinness like golf I know I. I don't know swagger to be able to relate to this conversation I don't we has not. Discussed in our pre show no doubt this is you can blame this entirely on and turn them this is on the intern is just 100% her fault so intern am his last day is today I should take an aflame torture took place well she's probably should at this pool she came back probably ten minutes ago was like hey I am I gonna be on the show today like Brendan was nice to gamble for John the last segment we get really busy show. Alex anything you wanna talk might get a fire take like Chip Kelly was overrated right credit by rather than nothing for their organs saved my ball broader it was a bummer right thirty year this Bronx who's that never heard of them if she's like to know by an inch starting give us some idea as and it led into this hole. A DM conversation yet and Indy inappropriate behavior of men and towards women yet she's a studies to journalists in organ yes she wants to be in the media I Jersey journalism major at Oregon. She's probably journalists there to know GI's the newspaper did break the iron. Has signed Maroney Mario I'd bet my apologies my apologies and daily emerald actually got treatment here just fires are better than the barometer and it is so mean it is what it is an honor and it's a she wants to be a journalist she's in media as she did the internship obviously for that reason. And she gets into this whole DM Ing thing of like. Guys that have DM and her yeah and we're not naming names. If she wants a name she can name names or she didn't name them to us the error and and us off the air and it's it's it's always amazing like we we know women tend to get a little worse than everybody else. This guy I work we don't get this is male media members there's not like female media members to slide into your hand I disagree with that I think guys get it but they. They kind of take advantage of it in a way that most woman probably find disgusting. Okay that's kind of my dues I guess I'll have OK I'm so I got us thinking about GM's and then -- it was like I would hold early DM people if he was of higher celebrity yet and I just don't believe in DM EIT by I 'cause I mean there's nothing I trust. The last. Then direct messages on social media in this is this is a huge problem your heads in the gutter your head is in the mind of brand and spray. Because you worry you're a certain type of individual and if you were if you are faced that situation of having to DM a female. You allow your mind to go to a place that would be inappropriate figures as a woman now woman micron PC bro CC relish having females back I see I think there are I think there's a right way to do DNS there's a right way and there's a wrong way and I would have no shame in doing it the right way but are. Just quickly for those who were not well versed in the Twitter sphere DM meaning direct Mazar violate such as Twitter it's it can be instead brands to Graham a snap yeah San chat yet there's there's all sorts of ways to to communicate on these on these social media outlet and I think I just I've finally reached an age where I'm too old for it. And you're also married with two kids yeah that's probably a big part I guess you know but even if I was available on the open market. Aside from having to kind of calm the ladies down there and fanning them away you know be off of the stick the old women at the grocery store really dig in the spray and a I don't know if I aim comfortable enough being direct message guy because there's an there's an element of social media. Of it's there forever like the screen shots double what are you saying it's there forever and this is my point even if you're not sending a picture you saying something they're still the element of what if you catch me and this is not real. What if you catch me. Made Marta Marv Albert. I wanna fight you wanna spank you wanna sniff your feet like. I don't want that to exist if we would pull that isn't a problem if she asks a later event please replay what I mean no no I know I don't just was out as a picture to me. Yeah what this is what I'm saying is there's a right way to do it is a wrong way to do it again if you get to the point were you may contact through a direct message I don't think that's the worst thing in the world but if you get to that point where that's where your conversation goes. Then I'm with you because that stuff doesn't go away. But if you just created were by a contact her relationship out of a direct message. There's nothing wrong with that as long as it's appropriate but see that's that's like I went there think of with a EU problem. This this is a this is a brand in spring had the gutter ball so guy is that direct message ladies on social media they're having just cordial conversations. How're you doing tonight. Would you care to house some dinner no way. No way guys taken to the grosses element of conversational direct tells us a respectable gentlemen gentlemen so as you use direct messaging them. I have is attack attack yeah yeah that's if he had laid out a big gulf there like you got real there is to admit that not niners to admit that at all now I don't know messaging has been used in my life yeah I does I into a comfortable way that we've we've discussed this this is taken over our entire show prep FYI well no we got a great show planned I know we do have a great show it's college football's back brawl site were pumped the beavers played a night let's go got four guest stars today for the jets Sunday showed today. It's going to be a good show I just turned into a philosophical conversation about. Our DM is appropriate and there's another thing too of the deal direct messaging for first some of the I guess Isaak in Suk would call the olds for people out there that know what they held direct messaging I'm just gonna call somebody. First for that element I'm not gonna name names but a tea right now I've heard names just in the local media market. All's so yeah guy a reporter yeah that direct messages. Younger lady she's yeah. And I'll just say right now the fact that I've heard this story from other people and I'm not time on our intern yet but I've heard it from other people. I don't wanna have that reputation I would never wanna be back guy where. I'm married I have two kids. But I'm also creepy older York's media Bragg who just direct message hey young lady is your married with two kids man and then it's never appropriate to idea but I'm just saying I've heard stories we're just out as the real thing which is no good like there was I don't wanna be that all out ought to name right now this is an a local guy. So when I was in college once upon a time. We were doing some kind of media project we're doing like a TV show. And this person this does this girl was like two years younger than me she was helping on the project and we were joking about sports media people. And she goes oh yeah and there's also creeps out there too it was like let she's like yeah like Joseph Chad. And I go white Jewish dad and I did a great reputation as Joshi added I was like Joseph Shannon ESPN how is he creep that Jewish ad she pulls up her phone. Messages from directly Joseph Chad and I go I go overdue were. Murder at colleague I guess that time. I hate did you get hit up it's a guy he goes he last he goes while I get it up into the shadows not let me is that the evidently that's an example of guy I would not grant a visa gold rating spray guess again hints of the nineteen year old girls and college and that's why it was funny because she she are entered on a faces things that we don't have to face there's just there's certain things that female reporters and female media members have to go through that we never well so why you are doesn't strike me as a direct message guy either. So why guard is it in person or it doesn't happen to send a fax yeah. And I'm kinda well on that one. I Artest well if you can't. Read the room properly yet then that's on you while some people want to rewrite the rooms reading you know I'm saying I understand that but they're gonna be creepy whether it's senator DM or in person itself. Yeah I probably safer that they're creepy in a DS. Have a good show shed totally fits that profile on this tell you gotta like that's a 100% I I solid GM models like oh my god you look at me like. Little creepy not to a shocking little greedy we were basing it upload that's not the most surprising thing out there gives up that night so lie in turn damage he's gonna make her lovely appearance on this radio program you've probably heard things about her throughout her internship and a great job it was glass on a scale of one out of ten Alan appropriate we've been molested by the greatest lines of ball. When Sprague warn that infamous tank top issue says you look like a five year old girl exactly. That's right so that a fifth grader I think that's what she said because I had no chest hair I can't grow facial hair. She did drop back in my shall be on the show today to 45. How will give her is enough she can bring up this topic we can get her two cents on a because she brought it up with a us about fifteen minutes ago. And we were just like floored by listening to what she was telling us and people who try to reach out in kind of the reaction you got to deal with on a of the women's side of things in sports media. And it kind of got us thinking so obviously we know now it's clear swagger and I not GM guys Dirk clearly hitting the direct messages out. I definitely am getting thrown under the bus wreck and well I know I'm sending inappropriate pictures I'm not like this does not say they did this is not a whole thing I'll tell her stereo type a similar topic in in the bag comes to that blew like it. Oh yeah that's right we Kennedy's wags says are these are well it's hard to fit in oh. Be that we missed data story yesterday one could you guys were stuck in the beer cooler and it was. You know that really upset me by the way I'm so are publicly admit that I was pretty pissed that we did do standard story I know I understand but you were there it was already a tough. You know with the with the freezer fan going for ES show. Then there's a little bit of a delay. That we just you know when we do that it's easier to have you here then there's a reaction we can see each other's faces so those those sorts of things are much more better executed with U2 in the studio. So I just wanna pass the losses were doing swank palms were doing spring line this college football season NFL season we're really excited about it. It's kind of just it was just something that was treated at a football because I bet on college football and pro football. We do have a sponsor for that yet we actually have a guy is gonna come on during straight line starting tomorrow and will give you more information about that tomorrow by we can no longer read fake sponsors for that so we decided. In kind of the fun of doing the show with listeners. We do fake sponsors for swipes plums I think that would be more that's one of the more enjoyable aspects of the shell rivals say that is not have a proxy to vote on this now this meeting was held at institute one value lies in certain literally just came only was is doing business and that's what I I really enjoy reading our listeners are awesome and reading their fake sponsors restraining line I enjoyed but now that we have an actual sponsor with an actual read for spreading the line we obviously have to take care of them we appreciate their business so. I wanna keep the face sponsor thing going so your fake sponsors which I think will be even more creative for a segment entitled. So lags plums have the Brady by 150 Yasser you can texting your best sponsor for swagger plums 150. And we'll do that segment we got Adam written berg national college football writer for espn.com.

Fortunate but it looked as that happens a lot in Indiana GG what happens yeah we're on Twitter actor and sprayed at Peter Johnson an act brand in spray coming up next.

This is college kickoff for a record and spray you get rock you back probably Coors Light on Kennedy's social and welcome back in its 12191080. Abandon. It appears Jack is we are throwing pick up on college football in America. I'm just trying to decide when I wanna drink for that game tonight. Well after yesterday about a bunch of Coors banquet so be during a lot of that tonight that is sure I do have a couple Iraq's course banquet in the fridge. Do we have to drop her singular Cingular and on page nine adjustment to dislike guard this. It yes legs straight up dramatically I got hi this but I was too late to he's kept talking and I don't know bad grammar aside missed it but yeah entry surely a much more better. It just a much more better it's much more better rumor alive and in person so my morning area so I just wanted to buy John that when we a lot of people text in that one. We all deserve a buzzer once a while. College football kicking off it is it's about damn time that we get it going a southern Utah Utah kicks off tonight to writes if I'm not mistaken sacked don't know 5 o'clock 5 o'clock twelve networks and I served today go you get an hour that you've got. Giants and cubs Vanderbilt. And South Carolina. You've got if you wanna get a look at Tennessee. The Tennessee kicking off an app app lets say play actually my brother Z network again at 430 my brother texted me this morning he lives out North Carolina there's a lap lash the state fans out there pretty strong fan base considering it's the smaller of all the schools that are there is pretty powerful schools though but it is for in military terms they are the SEC version of the Washington Huskies this year Tennessee is really over high and in apparently folks and North Carolina country are there. It's sniff and an upset Boldin on the approach that new instinct medium without flashing state and that would be held an upset about steak when you're a Monty Edwards is still there are so. You guys get some for your take us of course locally to organ state Minnesota and we'll see what the b.s are gonna be able to do in year two under Gary Anderson. But I saw this this morning ESPN has ranked the at a college football conferences they do this every year. And I'm curious if you can you name the top three conferences. In accordance to ESP now how they do this is okay what are the metrics they take the AP poll. And they mix it with the power football index from the pre season a people yes and that's a Roni has to say the best conference because the pre sees any people means absolutely nothing well it does to ESPN as they arrange the conferences so they they take without the football power index. Which is intended to capture conference's depth. And makes that was the AP poll the results are calculated on zero to 100 scale. And I'm tears and you can name the top three conferences. In college football why I how is how you see them. How I see them personally not using that metrics I would probably go SEC number one. I know people wait a minute but it is the national championship speak for themselves. Number two. They get to a three from me would be to tackle the Big Ten I think it depending on if you wanna make the argument of the conference and has more teams that can make college football playoff. And that gives them the nod than it would probably be the Big Ten number two. Or if you wanna have a conversation a death in more good solid football teams that will be playing in bowl games. They can win on any given Saturday then I would give the pac twelve the knob at my top three conferences. In terms of playoff contenders and death would be the SEC the pac twelve in the Big Ten so that is. Your incorrect on two of those three you got number one right which shouldn't surprise anybody the SEC number one. Using the magic of the AP poll and in the Conde football power index for conference depth. The number two conference to ESPN. The GCC. Yet that's a joke it at all depending that's all based on Clemson and Florida State they got an eighty rating and then right below them the big twelve so not the Big Ten not the pac twelve that's the age of twelve comes in at number three. And then after that you get the pac twelve number four the Big Ten is number five. And then a bunch of conferences that don't really matter in the grand scheme and like I love item that I love megaphone in the Big Ten but to say that they're the fifth best conference in the country. Gimme a break really I mean in any ACC you got Clemson and Florida State I understand that that Clemson was in the national title last year I respect both those programs but outside of them. Well we're we're high on North Carolina because of their one good season under Larry Fedora duke were were looking at duke is a national power now at this point don't forget attack. Continued Tammy Virginia to a lesser Georgia Tech George. You know okay good month. At no given no that it's ridiculous they had two teams in the ACC Clinton in Florida State a very good so if you wanna make the argument just in terms of teams. Our conference as they can put teams in the playoffs sure that the ACC Robbie should be number two but. The best overall conference they're not the second bad yeah I wish they just come out and admit that this is what it's based on because their explanation for the ACC being the second test is basically saying. You have two teams the top four of the eight people for stating Clemson. Outside that your right its North Carolina boy and where does little blow for a little hole is like sitting ninth nineteen Louisville's a good program but c'mon so that's four of their whole color would you pick Louisville to finish in the pac twelve this year. I'll middle of the road Arizona. 75 in fort yeah somewhere around there right now ball target new look at the big twelve Oklahoma's great mold they got a good test of Saturday morning at 9 AM against Houston but. Outside Oklahoma are is are you buy that were extremely high on a knack conference. You know now. Baylor with our browser being gone tees used assault program but not and I don't think their one and a national real estate and Baylor the only two teams are 21 and going through so I don't know where that comes from in terms of and and not even point is TCU in there. TC are low so a gap thirteen yes some people have TCU in the playoffs laid out and replace you can win the big twelve got to replace your bubble again mostly on echoes this year and just docks and two Josh doctor Judy I'd. In it and you got to defected on the intent teams. Yeah I got my web loosened because they don't have as many bottom dwellers down merit. 1213 fourteen they just got Kansas and Iowa State. There's two of them is yeah. 3450. Yeah the other comfort seat in how many bottom dollars would you say are in the pac twelve. A bottom dwellers Colorado. Oregon State organ stage that's really all I would throw in that meg UN Friday issue there. Not as a team that's as bad as a Kansas or Iowa State no. All will forego Iowa State Kansas and that's that's on an in my bottom like team that has no Jim I mean I let his Colorado Morgan State then writes a two out of twelve in the pac twelve to at a ten in the Big Ten mill and the other thing that you get a part of that too is it can be it's semantics to right where Arizona or let's say Arizona State. You may or may not think they're gonna be very good. But a issue I mean aren't they like a five to seven win team seven act past probably five or for worse. Arizona same thing I think Arizona if you told me they went six and six or five in seven. I wanna be shocked about that I think sometimes. We contend in our region to. Get a little moreover skis for the pac twelve in the real depth there but I see your point in comparing it to the conferences the SEC. I'd probably go big 12. And then pressure on third tour I think is split there's little doubt there's a term but I'm not gonna have a strong stance against that opinion yeah absolutely are somebody somebody to lead us Sean class tweeting us don't forget to discuss. Organ coming in twelfth on some email that Tyson knowledge or friend of the show. He got an email that says how the EP top 25 football schools. Perform on tender my did you like the program you swipe left or writer when I his I don't know what that means I haven't looked into that story by organ evidently comes in twelfth so we got back on for you like him and I like it thank god college football want to pass that along a conference depth and where panic ESPN has it pac twelve coming in fourth of the power five. The Big Ten net. Under an ESPN college football writer Adam written berg will join the shown next will get his thoughts on the opening weekend college football coaches on the hot seat. Big twelve expansion into stocks on the Big Ten Adam Rosenberg next the first whack with sports update. All right the beavers Minnesota kicks things off tonight for us locally Utah's southern Utah as well just glad to have college football back in the states kicking off tonight so we're gonna bring on. National college football writer for ESPN espn.com. Adam written berg you can find them on Twitter act ESPN written berg joining us on the Gil mortgage. More hot line Adam thanks for joining us manic I got to ask so we've we've talked a lot about being excited for the start of college football. Do you do any thing kind of privately in a bedroom you scream you shout liquor celebration of the season starting. That the better rabbit they're private guys in there I is really. I made better Gregg now out and you guys are excited about it that'll that'll debate it there really aren't are a year. You know armed repeated is okay Avic I have done it at this point out too excited to start. The highway eighteen you with the play out in the next now you're really starts week want to be required matters more now than maybe ever. Did everything you do from here until. You know early December can go on that resonate so obviously a great week one slate we're really excited about it and about each game tonight as well again at star. If you know this is Lou a lot of people so one of the best opening weekends if not the best opening weekend we've ever seen in college football on its cut our disagreement that when you look at the slate of games. I'm starting tonight and going all the way through Monday night with Ole miss and Florida State which one. Are you most excited to watch. You're actually that last line is summoning gains that are Saturday that will and street Pete and I cannot wait and I want to eat. We don't Mets employers stating part of it is that dot staged and now one and I think. About covering the sport. Great Cuba when the hard thing is just paying attention to everything that's gone on at the same data that's on Saturday night that was great about the Monday game where he had now. Is that it really you know as as the the polls spotlight in the country and goatee in certain other ballot. On the field and Orlando had overstated recruited. And the way don't let that Kerkorian owner you breezed. You know so many different subplots from Florida State's quarterback situation. You know can can that's lobby that missing each than they have got talent cook and her when Jay DeMarcus walker. Rob Johnston all the other all their candidate and her omit it about Jack Kelly shell it. Eighteen after losing the other great players that he had Powell how would she got a spare basically eroded buyer. You are to be supported at the play Alabama it in May be the last two years so it'll be really finding a gallon in many ways shaped like outraged that much in any game this weekend. We're joined by ESPN national council or writer Adam remembered on Twitter at ESPN remembered he's going to be at the LA she Wisconsin game at Lambeau Field. You co wrote a piece about coaches on the hot seat and I have a couple questions about coaches and hot he built one in particular. Other adding going into the season and everybody's kind of circled in on a is Charlie Strong at Texas and we had so many on yesterday it's as Texas hasn't had three sub 500 seasons consecutively since like the 1930s. Do you think it's a situation though for Charlie Strong that if they beat Notre Dame to kick things often their season. That panic homes a lot of this conversation or is this really just kind of all right well we'll see at the end of the season situation for Charlie Strong. Yeah and the oddity was gonna help him but he beat Notre Dame guy David Dickey can lose to Notre Dame screwed it Elber gain this year. Speaking at the look better the optics that this situation are the most important bank. You can't lose 28 or nothing Iowa State you can't lose if you're not they are ever let each year lads you can't have those types of results so I think he can. Abbott courier or Lockheed Nady up I'd like he's in. If this offense is starting to look competent. And that's what you need to change that you get in the Indy he's in the brain and sterling Gilbert is one of these it's spread. Tempo type type coordinators. And you're they have some personnel they're interesting current outbreak receipt urge you to running back. In outlook freshman quarterback in Jean Michel whose Internet ecosystem in high school so it could should be a watch a lot and it's here. And hatchet beat them to win in game picket the big twelve. You obviously Oklahoma the team to beat you may actually get. Is going to be pops up in some ways for taxes so other targets deep and very top Notre Dame. I had to go to Tallet you know Oklahoma State and Oklahoma on the first virus six weeks so that's going to be important for strong but he can survive a lot. As long it is units competing in scoring point. One what's a name for use at you kind of look at going into the season in terms of hot seat and it's not the Charlie Strong it's not the usual name wasn't named for you that you think is is. His job as literally on the line depending on what the season's going to be form. Well like a unit of the power coaches to coaches that are most trouble district and they have won a neat thing our producer Darryl hazel and Colorado's Mike. He's up on it but I think that that the interstate cluster coaches. Is in yet he's he latched. And you gotta go from west to east you have cabin somewhere and at and amp. Just are really not upbeat ending event at downturn in there is a giant Mandela out. In the eagle of east let my house policy on Saturday even the most interesting situation he got to survive almost the crew to get him out of there last year. And now he had a team that rightly international title conversation. Letter or at coming back great recruiting. Or. But they Ellis after achieve it the highest level for indicate he's good job beyond that he's in an eagle little east of that and it's got all not an awkward. And or schedule it just brutally and a lot of other big game are all built with crimes and like you get the best team in the country on Saturday night Richard Neer stadium doppler out and them coming and atop the game yet what smile coming in with LSU and a few weeks. There's some really big a gains in Iraq and in Auburn per per mile on to get back in munchak who taught you about them at this time last year. And the potential collapse candidate. In the heat and really buckle partner and so I think that that the dynamics there with those street. I I can certainly see one that not to surviving but I'd be really surprised about greed of those coaches are back next. My talk with Adam rip number ESPN college football writing in five months or at ESPN. Our Rick Marino we're out here pac twelve country and it looks like things are are shaping up potentially is another season when the conference gets left out of the college football playoffs so when they get these. SEC non conference games are really important somebody get your thoughts on those UCLA. Basically on the road at Texas a and M I didn't go well for Arizona State last year. We've what do you think about the bruins' chances and then USC down in Texas play in Alabama. Yet to really be games for the pac twelve I mean the actors so admirable year or more release are coming around that model you know it carries risk. The lead of the game is that people want a C and UCLA and USC are both capable. Our allies even USC winning this game content on Saturday U a UCLA trillion cubic feet knocked coaches. On the pats well in more than one coach has told me. They've been the most talented team in that conference. The past four years yet they haven't won the leak. They have made it to charity game very hot but soaked in that aren't going to translate this year is Josh wrote and everyone excited about him. If they get really big piece is back on the eat that despite all that he added it up front. Big and broad secondary airport plot with the ending injuries fairly early last year so this is a big opportunity against a desperate. Kevin someone coached team at Kyle field. If EU this is huge for him to do so and it really interesting dynamic there and USC a more equal to get that it would Alabama in 88 just wishful thinking you know on the the president gave it. I'm excited about this why did you rescue that would they have coming back op Ed. I thought it he Marten. Rockets coordinator last week and it's having him go to their depth chart I was like wow they actually got deep overnight but I'll be scholarship HE they're dealing what. For many years suddenly they can go three deep on the offensive line they have it under receivers they have multiple running back. Max out at certain question mark but he working with a lot of good pizza around them even against Alabama beat bet between no B. Very very count ID US beat us or point in this game. How can they stop boats Scarborough. And whoever out Alabama's gonna though it advocates the scholarship lock is an amber you still see don't linger in a defense concept and just not a USB. Ethernet at this point but is a USC up and academic interest that. The Adam written murky as being college football writer is our guest. When you look at the conference is could you brought up something interesting there in terms of the scheduling. So the Big Ten agreed to go into nine conference games starting this year and going into next year there are eliminating SES opponents. The big twelve agreed to a championship game theory have nine conference games saluted that next year with a championship game. The pact well we know what they have as wells that B three of the five power conferences. Wood nine conference games any championship. Where we add in your tank in your mind of getting closer and closer to universal model are we still really far away from that. Where do you think this is kind of a sign that maybe the ball gets rolling any certain direction. Do I think we're getting closer JCC epic its close they've voted out of it he time. They're athletic director group in their some ladies and that leaked wanna go to nine Toppert gains are some that are still resistant staying at eight what I like what HTC which is similar. Well model. It most of those schools go out schedule. Don't strong nonconference games and for some of those teams at Notre Dame. That's a non convert it into another worked into the sixties get so I think we're getting closer to one lead it certainly holding out. The SEC at eight conference games with a protected game and then only one rotating crops sober you have these. Ridiculously long periods where in Alabama and Georgia don't play like six or eight years. Oregon Auburn and Florida treat to play all the time are barely playing out in that it for anyone who won the great thing about the pac twelve schedule it is not my work done in the playoffs. Is you know not only hit nine conference games. It is talking weeks that you I want crock of you out the USC's at UCLA is playing the organ in this effort more often than not though actually you ultimately want. It's a new car congress' court. So many religious court he won big games you know let's at least you know sort 3040 points spread that we see an opening week got even this week that you're not especially in the thick and you want let those gains in more of those exciting one there around the country I think we are getting a little closer but it yet seat is going to do it wants to do until a court to be something else. Well dejudder on this one who are your four playoff teams. Well I have crimes sitting I just love what they have coming back on the opposite side with the shop Watson. Oklahoma another very obvious ticket and they have a strong urging anyone that they followed could be challenged. By at TCU I eat you know make a course I like Stanford coming out of the pack well I think they're gonna get it done this yet they've been close. And I like LSU MOB on Saturday at that they're gonna get it not the quarterback this year. And they're very complete everywhere else on their rosters so I had to date ending left out this year. And most organ. There you go Adam Greenberg ES being college football writer he's got Stamford representing the pac twelve and his college football playoff find him on Twitter at ESPN written verdict. He's going to be at the LSU. Wisconsin game can you make this a promise Adam can you please take a picture yourself pregame doing in Lambeau leap we'd really appreciate that. You don't honesty that is again I think we do I wanna I analysts say OK and did there we go at Emory Edinburgh ESPN things is done by man. Direct at Ontario Adam Greenberg espn.com. How about daddy's the only Stamford. We've got a lot of college football analyst on you're kind of treaty this season in his starts tonight we don't have one yet inspect a pac twelve team begin to sleepers are I've heard him a lot of folks picking LSU either. That seems to be kind of early momentum going for them LL SU has a few more people nationally that are given them a chance Leonard for a man obviously a big part of that but time. How about that as of the contractual gets left out this year Adam written berg really liking Stanford's chances to get in the playoffs are coming up next I wanna talk about this is dirt and I went back and forth on it. It's a great weekend of college football. Organ plays UC Davis would you prefer your favorite team play a cupcake. Or would you rather than come out against a big juggernaut week one let us know since I signed by five real fight that's next on the fan. First and ten minutes for our kings and lakers. Is not a great names that segment that is a great aunt's case and angers some us like we stole from somebody is to learn and you know you think that somebody would have put that into use at this point society I wanna get to this topic but I did wanna ask you this question real quake got. So the first acts I got when we roll in the studio I bring up the tax line and I don't have enough open very often during our show. But the first X I read is please for the love of god don't talk about can't cap predict for three hours. And but I idea why certain people do that topic vs what local guys do I do. But I am curious because cap pretend to sock thing pop up. The anywhere leg cop socks with takes there was a big cops out and some people talked about a lot he issued a statement just a second ago. How easing chip Kelly's doing with all this for a guy who keeps attention on his stuff not a big fan. I think it's safe to say Sprague not a big candidate. But what's he gonna say you know shut up he can share your opinion and it's a tough position to put a coach I don't know I just can't help apple one really Chip Kelly a guy who doesn't want you to know or see anything of what his programmer teams are doing I can't imagine how hole. Police she's it is in his own office right now he just wants to win today man he's just trying to win the deck ship what do you think about these socks on my god not again why am I commenting on this stuff. But let I asked this before the break and I I think this is kind of way a fund college football we're really got a lot of odd takes in defense excellent on this. We deal and if you if you're just tuning in for the first time by what happened Thursday tee you what's happened 1251 wanted to ask this question. Would you prefer is this weekend has been hyped as the greatest opening weekend of college football and you know I'll be honest. Unless I'm just gonna go reaction right now I agree your time tonight because you got games from tonight not a lot of great keys that you got games tonight all the way through Monday night just the match up yeah I think this is the best. Would you rather your team be a part of that and open would be really good opponent. Or would you rather them open against some absolute lay up cupcake. An organ opens against UC Davis has a tough one and so now they're gonna win this game by a 150 points and so I asked Dirk for the before the show started yes we will which position would you rather BN and it was a no brainer for you. Of which side you choose for this yeah I really wanted to I don't I'll be honest with you I completely disagree with you and I was surprised. And let a couple of reasons why I said give me the cupcake. To start the season off and for two reasons this year number one. And I think about us is ray adding a lot of it has to do adjust the situation in which your teams in like if you look at the organ perspective this year new quarterback new coordinators. A lot of new pieces on on the front seven new faces on the offensive line like it's a lot of question marks about that team. And if Morgan had to go play some job or not the opening weekend I would really like their chances to go win that game now you build up for for a couple weeks and he gets up like that leaks for. Work out some of the kinks may be the story's different so I think a lot of it has to do with a where your teams that your confidence level in your team going into the season. In the other reason why I'm glad organs playing a cupcake this weekend. Is because of all the other good games on but this is such a good weekend of college football and especially on Saturday where it starts at 9 AM. And it goes all the way to Clemson and Auburn kicker kick off at 6 o'clock. That you don't really have to devote a lot of time to the organ gave you DVR you watch C up republics in the first half but. As your mentioning it's gonna be 63 enough and seven eat enough and if it is that you got other issues. And you can devote your attention to all the other great games that are on this weekend. I'll tell you right now something I haven't seen very often with the organ football program is when I don't like FaceBook. I see peace like messages of come support comes shout he's kind of a game yet basically then insanity pleas by tickets out I I'm pretty confident knowing Morgan they're gonna announce that a sellout happens. But this is not a weekend that I'm driving Eugene of from a duck fan I'm sorry I'm skipping this game completely because I am not missing material and as the ball games for that game. And I also have fresh in my mind. The opening season loss to LSU and I from like I remember the excitement the anticipation the build up for that game. Because that was the year if you remember organ was coming off being in the national title they were twelve and I'll. A loss in heartbreaking fashion Robert and you think all right Darren Thomas is back the Michael James is back. Others seems a top five pre season team and that was the kick off game that year was LSU and organ. I used to run. And that was this is obviously before the playoffs it's a little different. There's nothing worse than having that opening season loss Ennis I I just disagree with that come with the way next game when it associate AB CS's somewhere one loss has the chance to derail your entire season and you do that in week one in your open maybe to make. It back to a national title game that was a devastating law how Jack for you for that game though I was until it was over it doesn't matter though you're so exactly get into that game yeah I'm jacked for this weekend I'm telling you right now does Jack in two weeks and I'd like Nebraska let me warn duck fan right now we may have to segments Macs come Monday to talk about that or in UC Davis game. 'cause I'm sorry even improve cop looks good the defense plays well. What are we getting from that UC Davis sucks they Photoshop they're poster together to produce a little note I like a bunch of monsters their not a good program big big boys so there's not a lot to talk about from that angle wondering did you detect some real quick a defense excellent at 55. 305. Point a cupcake is a good warmup for Tina and gets the lesser team paid that said I'd like to see as many good games as possible. Another want a cupcake but not an FCS team a team like army. Where you can do something cool yeah troops and still know a win is coming up with down like you don't go as low as UC Davis but I you don't need to play a top five team another one I want my team to play powerhouse and a William and Mary put their pants on the same way ninety audio but nobody wants to see that another one point two your saying it depends on the QB situation yet had a bad guy. Swing outcome jar full full full ball there. If you don't let's play a patsy. Another one juggernaut like when the ducks opened without issue Jerry's road didn't win the lead up was so great and we saw the real organ. And we've won some really good thoughts on this topic at the fair tax on a 55305. And I just I completely disagrees yeah I think there's more excitement for it in week one of and by the way with a playoff system now. You can be stand for now it's a little did you get a chance to recovery out you lose in week one. But if you don't it just adds to the resume going into conference in the rest of your nonconference slate so. Give me the big game I just I hate these games I do there's nothing to get from them it's it's just a pre season game at II that's I'm with the enters and I wish it was bigger UC Davis UC Davis is a buyout as low as you could go if I gave view. Trying to think of a middle of the road team here Virginia I almost into a sort of sense again example you I would not be opposed to starting with Virginia and meets at again you should weigh knew it was a Virginians can be a terrible year kinda with the bees do M Minnesota Ohio State you switch for the ducks Virginia. Whoever UC Davis tags and angers care creators columnist for the Portland Tribune will get his thoughts on this topic. And a whole other hour range of on he's also in Minnesota for the beaver game Harry Hager is next hour to dirt spray on fans.
