I've been done yet and still a couple of guys that we project and the unit took bullets and great out there. But not in high school and they went I think they tried to upstart kids in the cage. Within five minutes of each other days. It's it's. Unaided eye color quote right out so you know that they have a cup classic pac twelve and chicken dinners with Edgar the top Ivan that they were even the top twenty. You know public earlier you know a couple days ago so. Daily post well I this year you added he would give a good program. When you add the Rose Bowl in San Donald coming back I mean is it officially is USC back now or is still too early to determine that with clay Helton as a head coach. You know what I had to let's wait but the wait on that you buy it tend Arnold you know probably going to be a top five I'd be guy go to the trees season Elena got back. You know I'm I'm still seeing you know they'll independently. Yeah a lot of ticket and state Alabama and critical play dealt that part of the wet finger back at no I've back we pay like Pete Carroll date back. Nobody that's up achieve you know beating Jacob valley and bluntly quote so today to the top you tackle the country's top it he died I had on the right track. Certain retirement Greg Megan's national recruiting analysts fox sports and scout dot com on Twitter. Act gray billions kind of just won a stroll around the pac twelve with the end take a look how everybody's doing let's start in new gene. I'll Willie Taggart it tired in December he only has basically I'm gonna have to compile his class what have you made. Other job Willie tiger's done and how they close today on Sunday. I'm on the other hand I mean I contend that that an all star you decreased aperture I mean they got they got some guys in and they were able to get. Players know what public Graham. He would even look at an organ you know the political chatter of the dead period in December and a lot and ended early guy you know I think to a lot of red. They got it would go and elsewhere. Yeah I'm Evelyn but lower in an outlet to and I feel pretty good about had been at target laid. Older guys that were actually in other directions and I admit regret what you can look at that get a hold on deck you know wicketkeeper bell I think is really good tactic we come probably. I retired and everybody else but I think he's. Extremely talented. You know I'm a big I could play out Altria and all the employees. A mile from their psyched up with a look at the harder but kick play I mean it really held it outside linebacker. It made. I'm given that I it to happen any Urquhart we don't commit a bunch slapped happen at target is that just got to come and in and knocked it close on. Yet I guy that would commit earlier I'll total out of it and also got him into it and really look it up out. You know he's thinking about the day's wood Chip Kelly Dorgan and what they were able to do recruiting wise and an Alfred steaks and over and it it kind of slips a little bit and then obviously he's let go. What's the difference just take listeners in who maybe don't follow recruiting quite as close these others. What's the difference in terms of mark Alberts in the former staff and what they weren't able to do over is really Taggart in this staff in just a month and a half and what they were able to do. Go to a lot of energy it's I think the pain and and I actually like mark that that thing they heard or get listeners just. It seemed to be a lot of instability with the coach he's got a look at risk. Are rumored coaching change is where it worked in social coached GH. To your mom or our coach you you don't wanna major kit to a school PK. And it was going to be there 12 years ago. All that negative yet that would really hurt and and I did not take the shot. Black camp located shouted made it. The new staff the had been elected to go to that they're desperate and on you know whether it be your key hey we're your child Clark your. Mara crystal ball so it felt like these are all these are big time EB recruiters and they've really get after it and so I think you know basis we do a lot of light work. You know the great political kind of coming close I think it. Group of coaches it's gonna be really really good aggressive. Obviously the like they take it like the whole idea of going out occurred in cried either didn't it is decry cabinet. Kiss but took a seventeen year old knocked up and it but you have to do that yet is that choke on the job and I would I would love. But bad news that I think is really guess I get taken shot a couple of the major difference is that the news had a lot of young. Energy. You're an old app they don't there for a while around packet that can be applied he could take the building but also I think I'll get stale. You're in the paint operative on the red you know crowded market after he can't while I played good you do until. And energy. And I think that and ultimately got a look back. Or talk to a national signing Dele great billions national recruiting analysts for fox sports scout dot com could follow on Twitter. Act Greg millions let's head north on I five beaver fans extremely excited about the season that they had the direction Gary Anderson is setting. They end the civil war losing streak dropped organ. What is Gary Anderson's recruiting class looked like so far. Certainly college you know a couple defections that would hurt that you Padilla are focused more. Guys get locked in a junior Calvin you know what the guy who announced the army game and I think you I've read. Look at the first army given out but they've ever had in only last a couple of weeks. But every uber class I didn't really ready jacket from got the odd to. He wasn't recruited as well as he should avenue that top intricate. And the guy can actually play for anybody's. He's that I headliner. Getting you know can't feel all right our ally Galactica cuckoo. Trailed power out there have been eight trade on cotton. Offered from everybody you know Colorado. And Nebraska visited organic. I'm gonna get content DB class to be honest is to begin a child locked in another state you know Hawaii very very good football player to scream and he. Look at the draw high school ironically that he teenage witch and her Calvin told that a receiver Derrick on the silk. And like it yeah I think it metropolitan. David Morse you know big time kid and then again at 63 tool I had been. It exactly play traded at the guy that you know USC didn't offer but he could play there I mean he's packets go. Top to bottom I'd like but he did a particularly good class. Do you think it's overstated sometimes because the field for us up here I think for people that are are following recruiting and following Morgan State you mentioned the kids that they've lost channel four star kid here a four star kid there. Instead of focusing on the kids that are coming in meeting its overstated sometimes in Dwight can get to Corvallis and like looking at this class of people go from. Hey maybe it's a top thirty class and now they drop in the forties may be the low fifties and people seem to be more disappointing evening that's a little. Overrated of people glaring on that when you're talking about a candidate. Now hunter caught holy 0% it anonymously. You know you that you had your top ten recruiting class is not going to be bit you know basically cut and paste it's next year's going to be Alabama announced. Auburn you have to know it came out it right every year. From from their lead from 35 B there's really no difference at all I mean there's not a difference between a pac twelve you're gonna have USC. Usually noted is going to do well there are going to do well you know or at nine. There's really no difference and it goes both schools it's. How we paid it. It's great to have. You know I'll be ready climactic note in a cop about it at Richard French the water cooler that. You know that your group hug 12 players to make a difference between a scoreboard from eight to get. In the pac 120. Yeah I mean she watched and I think had has had a pretty good poppy pop allotment and no they can talk about that the with a lot you know Marlins who pull out of the USC right and can't wait ten. And a lot ought to surround like this I didn't think I think it's going to be a top twenty I class below what about the guys they've lot. Like I mentioned really good class and there's not a whole lot different you know from. Thirty to sixty and. During Diggins is our guest Nasser recruiting analysts fox sports scout dot com on Twitter at Greg billions elsewhere around the pac twelve at a discount to par for your first alas yet. What class has been the biggest disappointments in terms of what you thought they could do and what they end up accomplishing in what class has been the biggest surprise to you maybe somebody who over performed what they should have done. On that you don't get it could decide and it'll keep positive or not they don't know what that did it you're right on the trigger coach. Take you know we really hot here if I think we play everybody got everybody they want it right Nolan Nolan lock anybody bulk. But in terms you know occupied local like on the epic org and cover up with a twelve bit gate and they look at the ranking yet got such a tactic about. They're gonna it's gonna be critical to a top twenty I class. You know again he'll look you got there we can't do that could definitely impact bat but. The deal to close the way they did it to get technical about a guy that we be looking at. I would order with the biggest surprise for me I think cal they got a really late start you know and his staff. Now hoping that kind of weird for being on the letter waited so long I'm not sure with the financial deal. I think cal will be party hey you know light what are that class but again Billy had a few weeks to work with so you know organ was obviously surprised. I cal probably hoped they could done better at that caliber to our next year doesn't look ox with a with a really good secretary under stark and and that's US Cecil what we tell other global bounce back next year. One I think sticking in the bay it's almost at a testament to what's going on at Stanford started by Jim Harbaugh now carried by David shot. I continue to be amazed by just what they're able to do continual explain how there able to get the kind of class that they have gotten the last few years with the academic restrictions that they have. Yeah I mean what would say they don't do it is it unbelievable and not afraid to come down to Tibet either are struggling. You know what in one game while Harris remember those days yeah. Pat how would always go mom and dad first choice I mean suit I have four kids that well I'm not hampered its not. There don't they actually another color so you how you had to act they're winning ten games every year. And all the sudden. You know Q why not go there you get the basketball court right it's great football. And again I hate Al distribute it and no yellow ever co op. It dictated so much else to sell and if you ever been a corporate lawyer especially any place so. They have a good now you know like you know I keep saying you know what is that is all about being aggressive and grinding in a row to get staff in which off. And a great job closing again. Mommy daddy make a great impression on them and elect peppered they would do differently ethnic the last five years. Did. You that it. Well connected to restrict people value that a ball that you know that that's not true but they do lose god every year who wanted it to but not a great of people picnic get a lot. That's not true. It doing differently. And market our guys as freshmen sophomores now because they can't because they have advocate opal program. They get paid if you want to come here you take these classes you take it to summer school did take your cue to achy after the senior. But don't let at all you know here to eternity if a first time and take it guess score and they don't expect you and you can beat that score back. They're able to get guys. Candidate already why it at Stanford early on and now they're palace and how to get into kept her. Yeah it's a great point thanks again gray guy we know earlier you gotta run Manny got a lot going on today so appreciated time Greg Reagan's national recruiting analyst fox sports scout dot com valmont what are. At grade Diggins and Dow while we were actually on the air with gray gave we will assembly were trying to follow along and and into it and a big commitment for the organ docs as we've all been waiting for it some pie I've kind of felt like it was going to happen but the commodore the norm the at cornerback out of California. Announced that he will indeed it returnees commitment to the university of organs on the hour Arlen arm as I Tweety kind of a feather in the cap for coach coach tiger's first class less for sure gonna boost the rear they're recruiting ranking and yet the more an athlete in the country. So we know where what position he's got a play I haven't read into that maybe you do I don't I think most people are assuming he's going to be a defense of back considering how bad they've been there and how deep they are running back from wide receiver to begin with we get a kid like that that's the beauty you can put him almost anywhere because of his ability as sure yesterday Anthony Thomas and the same thing where you get a claim on the field so we'll see where LL -- a -- but the element or one or does commit. To the University of Oregon coming up the bottom of the hour we'll get it Roger Goodell press conference from today as he talked about Thursday night football the raiders' situation. How awkward things are when New England outlook on a updates on what happened today. Down and use in a couple of days and this admirable but coming up Max let's hear about the organ state recruiting class a from Oregon State fans via offense I think on 55. The real final update John poll questions of the day kind of recap national signing day for organ and or in state that's next on ten and the fan. Any NFL your bottom of the hour threes and I've football not going anywhere. Let's do our disappointment. Also on a couple of seconds you'll hear from Mike Leach he apparently went on a pirate ran today will we try I try like hell to get the a cougar recruiting person on and scheduling did did not work so I apologize to fans out there we had a few context in. I wanted to hit all four here in the northwest region but scheduling this not work out. That is kind of the way it works so here from Mike Leach here and a second but let's talk a little about the organ state recruiting class it would depend somewhere you look again every every side's gonna have different ESPN rivals scout and everybody kind of analyzes things differently and has different stars for the players but. I just on average I'd say probably mid forties is is where you'll find the organ state class coming in at this point and this sentiment I've got promotes organ state fans is pretty positive I think there's an little frustration with the way to maybe they closed losing a couple of bigger fish that they were hoping to land but. Auto hole coming off a four win season I don't know why you be disappointed with the classic ranks fortieth in the country I thought billions. Just had such a money point in ending this is really good perspective for people because there are people that and are not happy yet you lost a couple Forestar kids. You know. Can you really make that big of a difference between what classes thirty threw fifty notably Elam won four stark in a completely change changes everything and how we rank these we can drop on twenty spots because of one player he's a five star Q a four star kid. So I think it's really important not to react it sucks that you lose out on some of those kids one of them was committed. Another a couple of yet the number one GCO line was down to UN organ. Bruce Johnson was down the UN organ and you lost both of those it sucks to lose and two to the school down south no doubt. But also look at it for a second and taking a town Wayne Jimmy shadow to listen the first hour. They have six wins. Six interiors and two years and he is getting in the living room a force our kids regularly. So I think it's good perspective to step back for a second there what 42 44 depending on the site now. It's fine I thought they'd be a little higher no doubt I thought they may be be Riley's highest ranking season which I think was thirty fours. But it's not the end of the world they've six wins and their and living rooms of Forestar kids this is the business it's not easing Corvallis now nobody would ever say that. But to be in the living room and have those conversations he just needs a couple holes plod and if you as a quarterback that can do it this year. The defense of line is really weak but if you can find one or two guys they can just apply some pressure. And do it yourself to a bowl win. What does that mean for that staff going for I I think this class is pretty good yet they Jorge Mora one desert I I get that this I didn't get that moved by that kid either just because of how most stable and solid wins a line as. Easy is it totally is he was an hour maligned junior college offensive lineman in the country into an organ state seem to have been the front runner for him for a long time they've been after him her. A basically calendar year but Mario crystal ball took over the recruiting. For him for the docks when when he was hired out Alabama off in in Eugene. And it didn't take your money was able to four implement and cab fulfilling the the hype around him as a recruiter because organs they had done a great job with him. For about a year or so that was a big get for the ducks that but I'm with you as well the fit little interest in but they landed George more. Here's the other thing to what was the over under in Vegas last year Ford as it was a three years three and half three and a half I believe you exceeded your over under with a school with what we perceived to not have that much talent. Nets another aspect that I would take into account with Gary Anderson in the coaching staff. The two and three star kids that you got you guide David Morse who's an absolute studs wag told me the alignment from Sherwood is a piece these crazy. Take what you have including the JC kids the Evans this out a Myers does the latins. Take all that into account and just tell yourself do you trust Geary unison to make the kids better yet. If you do then I don't think you worry whatsoever relocating say okay. You filled some holes. You have some kids coming in that can compete push it. On top of the kids are all workers are returning from last season for sure let let's hear from Bolton the coaches from organ and organ stable start Bulgarian as he mentioned David Moore is Gary Anderson. I talked today about that Sani. Coach wasn't myself on Washington plays a junior in high school knows slam dunk Keisel leader he's very emotional. And he takes care of his business comes from a tremendous tremendous family that is. You know he committed to us early and they stuck to its mom and dad. David was extremely good through this process and he was while those kids and became so highly recruited that you worried about him every single day sleepless nights sitting there thinking. David would you know possibly take another visitor go this direction to go that direction and he assured us every day wasn't going to which is rare in today's day and age. But he is a tremendous athlete you watched the tape. And he's long. He's athletic he's going to be a safety for us you know he'll may be involved in some blitzing some different things but I like him as a safety position again he's a long liver kid can run. And we've got a few of those kids in this class are really help as the David Morse is a leader and he's also from the state of Oregon and he stuck with us all the way through never wavered. I try to wavered more than David did so I'd appreciate him as they went through this process. There's Gary and is about as he fired up let's get to amplifies your premier fans the Pentax line up. And 24 stars not decommissioning gone elsewhere and George Moore going going to the duchess is even bigger loss since he's going to your damn rival. Who only recruited him from month compared to your eight to ten months now one. In response to be recruiting is not unlike what happens on the field that first competitive sometimes other times not then your in most games including. It's a big boy fights still an underdog but you're close this is like that mostly three stars a few four stars beat out. A few more successful programs lost a few four stars from the more successful programs defined success next year. A brasserie close out are more four stars the good. For aware were coming from you have to figure to a bowl game next year yeah you just have to keep taking those steps program that's the key. I would be the first to tell you if they don't get to a bowl game next year incredible disappointment. And so I. He double joined toll exceeded the win expectation you Beecher rivals first time in like eight semi years yes I'm like whatever it is I UN indices are high. You had great meetings with a recruit some of me lost out song you're able to commence succumb to arouse like get it through your three should be the year at least six and six in get to a ball game. Absolutely let's hear from mildly diarrhea and her friend yet today one ahead big signings here. Over the recording process was up racks and Burmeister the quarterback he was committed Arizona he got in the flip there's soon is. And he was named head coach an organ and seemingly a prized prospect and a guy. Who could be behind sent her in shock I should say and years teaching usually Taggart on his quarterback Sonny. I know for me personally looking at a quarterback. The only live committee's leadership and competitiveness. And the Smart. At least 21 down Lewis speak you know if he knew that like those kind of got put. They press thinking you out more could lose people that'll be very talented you know he can do a lot of different things. Yes Willie Taggart also had a good day I you know some beer cans like I get the frustration in an ally and I even heard from Morgan fans today they look at some of the guys that USC ultimately signed in. You gotta go without pie in the sky view of what could be at the start signing date if you're able to solve all the dominoes fall in your direction and you land all the 45 star guys your rafter but. That's just major recruiting especially with the programs around the conference right and I USC being back Washington's strong Stanford's always a good recruiter. It's not easy and I think considering what both schools had to work with organ state coming up six wins in two years and Mosley tired only being in the position for about two months. And a bowl of them in home runs today I just like I. I I just don't resides in an I their program like being honest or in state you have a may be couple disappointments I'd like him to be on the roster but again the trust factoring Gary Anderson. Any organ thing I don't know how there's any negative there shouldn't be I mean you get in there with with two months of work to do be able to flip kids commit them. Gay kids to recommit income year program and he did pretty impressive job in my opinion yet you missed out on some 45 star kids. But to be honest would use some of these kids choose all your programs like organ. That are you know one of those top 25 type programs in the country how people view on. They put him in their final but it doesn't mean they're really a final right you have one or two schools and that Sid and sometimes will include. You know that third team in the hats on the table when it doesn't mean that your anywhere near itself. I just look at both them is pretty good the other thing too from and I I got this from Scott Reed and then listening to that tiger cut there on Braxton Burmeister. I get a vibe head to it if I'm Justin Herbert. I'm working my tail off and next year might be a hot hot year Boxee year for him now and what I mean by that is if he does disappoint and maybe the team's losing games they should marry struggles. I don't know if Willie Taggart can hesitate change quarterbacks based on what he wants to do offensively. And talking up to recruit like Burmeister even if he doesn't write jury does redshirt maybe he's willing to look elsewhere Ted. May not go more the flow of what he wants to do on offense had skinny you know the competition to be fun to watch a quarterback battle bowl schools will be fun to watch. And this spring to see you once again and so organs seemingly headed towards a top twenty ranked recruiting class in the country. According to most recruiting sites and an organ state somewhere in the low 40s40 to 4345. Somewhere in that range. As read their ranks the most Gary Anderson Emily Taggart having pretty solid. National signing day say Thursday night football's not going away and we're trying to figure out why that's next. Concept that has to close out the show some followed audio Mike Leach talking about Icelandic heritage. Yeah I'm sure that's in regards to recruit somehow hacked and Jim Mora. It's not a good mood today yeah I saw this lives Jim Mora salty Jim Mora a little. Did have a hissy attitude it is that an inning noon that surprise you at all. Well it does when your put on national television I hug your recruiting class and how you're doing in recruiting and you start that whole interview process with an attitude. It was over something which by the way I didn't even think was controversial as saying now. But he did get really personal he absolutely did civil goes by the show both those before we get into Roger Goodell on Thursday night football let's do a little prize bribes for Dick collar number five you'll when he sub party tray for your football viewing party. From Jersey Mike's 503250108866358. To eighty color number five you when he sub party tray for your football viewing party. Jersey Mike's is your catering headquarters for your football party this Sunday Jersey Mike's now open at the happy valley crossroad shopping center. Honor 72 and Sonny said robe Placer or online. And Jersey Mike's dot com Roger Goodell did is got a state of the NFL address as he always does. The league in miserable that took place today in Houston and one of the things that he defended. Which I guess shouldn't be a surprise. But what he set about it should be. Was Thursday night football so there's an apple balls Benet an issue for football fans and it for a couple years now we debated it many times on the show throughout the fall. Did you watch did you care another blowout ratings were down. What's Obama there is an a football ball Roger Goodell came out today India what he said and others in a football. He said his high quality football no it's not he said they're slightly lower in terms of the ratings than the other primetime games it's actually not even close not even true and he said dad that the injury rates. Are down on present ample pomp I don't know a lot injury rates another two alternative Faxon. Pet that's exactly what I think he's so wired this and Colin try to do is when he had a mind of like my staff broke down the stats and said. Yards per game and flags are down for the dead those are two measurements that the full balls as good as it is on Sunday or even a Monday. And I thought Mike Florio there for the good job pro football talk he was on a radio station to basically didn't interview me started laughing he's like. Yeah I've heard that people are trying to suggest Thursdays as good as if not better than any other date no no not at all we watch pretty evident when you just can't watch the bleeping games and talk to the coach is buying the scene that it is not the same quality. But there's been in this for money. There aid Thursday bubbles going nowhere that there's money involved there's billions of dollars at stake here with these TV contracts that they signed. They're not gonna dump a day of the week that they're playing football and even though we know and they know it's not a great product no. And and I think that's the funny part about trying to defend it is it's like we're not stupid. More football fans I I want you can argue. You might be if you are a football fan we watched a lot of Thursday night football this year and there are a lot of bad games being played so to try come out of this state any claim that it was good football on high quality football in the ratings are doing just fine. I it is wrong I mean just look at it some of the scores he had the jets or did those 3731 close. A couple other close games and other and that the pats beat Texas by 27 bagels beat the dolphins 22 to seven Packers 26 bears ten. Titans beat the jaguars by two touchdowns falcons beat the Buccaneers by two touchdowns ravens blew out the browns. Seahawks blew out the rams have been there were a lot of blood centers and a football but. And gets doubted so what you're talking about and you know I was reading an article on pro football talk about. This kind of the estimated revenue that Thursday night generates. In the NFL players association is decimating about one billion dollars or more evidence prize me. And that's the reason why you you're not seeing any movement even though seemingly a lot of players are against Richard Sherman very outspoken throughout the course the year. About Thursday night how guys is that their bodies just aren't great play and it's almost putting them in an unfair situation at the tough part is. As if you miss lands are line he brought this up earlier on the show today from Houston. Saying and where you gonna generate that one billion dollars because that's the way the NFL look at it is if you take away there's an apple baucus guys are getting hurt it's about product through. Where do you come public that revenue gap if you're losing how well you don't that that's the prop. Men dirty could say it even if it's not a billion you can save 500 million they're not getting ready that's on revenue stream that was created that you can't make up anywhere so. They're never gonna get rid of this even if a lot of the players hated. And you know I I talked to guys that used to be a leader not be more like the feeling a locker room is basically by Thursday. The bodies still little sore and I'm tired of the younger guys as not to feel that then 910 year guys that wake up and are ready to play until Saturday night. We're talking like second third year guys are still waking up and by Thursday morning. Still feeling a little sore and everything is rush you're forced to be out there it throws off your internal become a weekly clock. A lot of guys hate it but because of the revenue factor why would you get rid of that slice of pie. And and the players are gonna they're gonna get a slice of it and that's why you can be is against this he wanted you don't want to play that early but if you get in that amount of money. It's hard to say no attend the bye week doesn't work to a certain point why it's something it's your team's buys in what week fourteen weeks fifteen play in and also early in the season you don't have bye weeks yeah 45 we don't want it week to sell it and that's where he had and that's where I think I love that take is that so college teams do college teams if you play on a Thursday night the ruling college football. Is you have to have the week before off because you just not gonna put kids through planned on Saturday and implant again on Thursday. But the NFL you can only be able to do that for a small number of weeks in the middle deceit I just don't get why the NFL housing giving college football the middle finger and somebody Tyson might not play Saturday. I would I don't totally watch on Saturday announcing the games would not approve drastically a listener points out what about Friday night's. Just an extra day then that's all I does that mean that's really all you're asking four point eight somebody said the union day ahead of the union was on Mike and Mike and basically said yes statistically injuries are down my dizzy is a nice I mean your your take it one game out of a bad seven dollars a week doesn't prove that the product is better know the products suck and that's what we as fans I mean let's be real that's what we care about it's not that the guy blew out Aziz yelled broke his leg. You we care about that for fans of the ball your favorite team. We care about how good is equality. And there's a lot of weeks if there's an apple ball admittedly during the season we say this all the time. There's weeks with matchup I don't even care to tune into watch all jags bills. Great can't wait and not see what the score a data that game is idealists their checks and am landing at Thursday night of the body to Jacksonville Cleveland I'd rather watch that he's hi all I think about him none of the when I got a coworker who calls in sick every year after the packers' season and some football fans are actually stupid indeed. Tried that once. You know and analog admit they mourn all bag and I don't wanna just to blunt the entire slate he had. Eagles giants and we 162419. Yet that cowboys vikings game granted very low scoring but 1715 at least was close. She's beat the raiders to anyone thirteen yet the Panthers with saints 2320s so. Not every game was a blowout but even in some of those games like cowboys vikings 1715 coming down the wire. But just inside a wall with the Boggan and remember watching stretches of that that. Do you just double teams were ready to play cell. I love the idea of trying to work out a buy but. If you were to do that you would have to eliminate probably the first four weeks of Thursday night football and the last four weeks on Thursday night football. And basically is had a middle eight weeks of the season you know makes Thursday night football better. Being a degenerate and putting some scratch on the game I remember I bet on the cowboys viking game I was Cisco same news. And boom boom boom I'm gambling does it just makes everything better so I got our booze makes everything better than it is that I can't see them playing out Friday nights too much high school football going on as the NFL's not a friend trample on not here I am president of Ahmadabad gay wanna do whatever they wanna deal with a. But I'm not depicted then they'll tell everybody. Thank you Roger thank. Against NC a Roger Goodell comes out he has some alternative facts about there is an Ivo boys and the ratings are just fine in its high quality of football. We don't know what he was watching but is not going anywhere because it generates about one billion dollars per year. And the NFL's got to find a way to fill that revenue gap if they get rid of it hey Mike Leach talking about Icelandic heritage. And Jim more I just just not happy on national television some of the audio clothes at the show next on 1080 the fan. The headline of the day we have not got to yet. Maybe. Just maybe. The best athlete named an all time was discovered. And I don't know. And it and it brought out there here's the name. The said individual is a recruit that signed it with the mighty Illinois State football program. Take the cardinals red bird bird bird till the Illinois State red birds signed six foot 7285. Pound offensive lineman. Coby. Buffalo meat that's pretty good Coby. Buffalo beat is that the best name we've ever hurt. His last name is buffalo leads you what's the origin on that one that is fantastic. Buffalo meat but let him but somebody ate so much about it. Your last name is now buffalo meat and that means stocked. He went and had a family buffalo meat gate in the past that name dance and where the buffalo meat the buffalo meat clan. And now he's going to Illinois State yet it's a pretty vast Ayman Al liked it was easy when is he white. I I it's hard to tell OK so he may be mixed with something yes I've would be my guess I love it isn't first names Coby Coby. Kobe beef. And probably Kobe beef and knowing the way that family operates with both slowly I'm assuming it's Kobe beef and not Kobe bright it's almost like with a last name like that you have to give him a first name. We had to me get a Sam Elliott drop is thirty names like that out there too can throw at stake. So. Eight Diana would be finally Andy steak guy in blue and you'll now be at Morgan Neill Morgan yon will be a great last name Bruce can see just is just said it down around risque literally on the Astro enough jurors are too long.

Could back to mother told us in some detail. About all the things they be there in Iceland which is everything and it's literally everything and you don't talk about preparing it you do this and then it tastes fantastic getting. All the rest and so one of the very fascinating conversation and then. Of course my family's Norwegian and finished so that was kind of been my will house although I've never been Iceland and so one of these days you and I need to settle but not take a road trip. Kind of expected characters sudden. I don't know about that motorcycle from your favorite movie that keeps breaking down we might wanna go a little more. Efficient than that even. Even donkeys perhaps hood. He how when where the other will make our way. I don't know where that went. What happened there just getting on a Mike Leach train of thought is just great isn't host a road trip the idea road tripping for Leach's. He loves to talk about them a retard but that was that was Peterson that some of my favorite audio we've ever played on the show is when he legitimately broke down when a road trip to be like between him and crispy and you know ride out choose the music because I don't know if you keep paying attention yeah but I take it be passed out the passengers see I'd have to be dry so that.
