they're gonna hopefully get larger building. Yeah.
I mean, you have the streaming show so you could get to play throwing.
You don't need to get a big name after.
So welcome to the news s sports talk central.
Move with my normal co host Hunter.
And today we're gonna be talking about a lot of NFL, some MLB's news and then some college for some Virginia Tech news.
Yeah, out nor, like last week.
Last night's game was it was good.
Now it's good if you if you want to lose.
Yeah, that's basically all it waas.
You don't really see Bill Belichick.
It is asked Look like that too often helped what? Three points? They're cooked.
But, you know, we all knew that going into this year, the Patriots reign of terror is over.
Um, they Bill Belichick got embarrassed last night, and that was not well, I mean, how often can you say that? That's really the first time in a decade.
There's something that they've got embarrassed.
So, um, the Rams air good.
Jerry Goff is always fascinating to me.
He's kind of like a Jekyll and Hyde.
Kind of quarterback, but overpaid.
Yeah, but he's still not bad.
The Rams are a good team, though.
What do you know? What I'll say is like One thing I wanted to talk about this game is Do you think Cam Newton's career after this is like it's close to being done? Yeah, I don't think he's any good.
I mean, they're winning in spite of them, it's just there.
Do you found in Bill Belichick's coaching is why they have one basically it, right? Yeah.
No, I agree with you.
I mean, that's what I was my big take away.
It's like the Patriots were like out of this.
Like the five or six teams I could get a wild card spot.
They were like, the first team likely to be likely to be eliminated.
Yeah, one more loss.
Will, uh, what about me down? Because the best they could do is 88 rams.
I mean, they got to keep up.
I mean, you got the You got the Seahawks who are getting better in defense.
And you might talk a little bit more about the Seahawks game a little later.
But we have The Cardinals might be one of those one of the wild card spots.
I mean, who knows with that team? Who knows with the Rams doing so Yeah.
So let's go talk about that's That's so let's do let's do this Steelers first.
Uh, just on a side note, both of us on the fantasy league.
Uh, how the hell did you How the hell did you not make? I'm going to tell you what I'm gonna tell you how Antonio Gibson got out of the game because of a toe injury.
I lost by, like, eight points.
And I think I lost the tie breaker to can, too.
Scored during the season is the tiebreak.
And you got you got screwed.
And then, you know, literally again, I was a toe injury away from being in the playoffs there now, So I'm really playing the same opponent three weeks in a row.
Yeah, I play Cam in the first round because I got the number one seed.
I'm down right now, but I mean, e should still be able to be that I think so.
It's gonna be interesting, but I mean, like, I'm kind of honestly glad that they lost the game.
I've always said it to you, dude, they're not there.
You're never going to see a team of 16.
I've said that like about a month or two ago. It's just not going to happen.
It happened to an NFC team.
I don't care if it's the NFC East doesn't count for tiebreakers with the A F C.
There's so undefeated against a F C teams.
Right now, you have the number one seed.
Still, from now on, so if you're gonna lose it, you're gonna lose a game like make it to an NFC team.
You know you're lying on short rest.
It's I know it's the Washington team, but I mean, they have a lot of issues to fix.
You know, the same issues kind of presented themselves with the with the offense, especially, their defense is down five starters.
I really can't blame the defense for that loss.
You know when your offense can't do **** in the second half, three points against the Washington team who doesn't even have that good of a secondary.
That's kind of embarrassing with all the weapons that you have, um, often scorning is still a problem.
They're just They cannot move the ball to save their lives.
It's kind of weird.
I don't know that they need to make a change there after the season.
I don't really care.
Cycle 15 and one.
But I mean, when you're down 4 to 5 defensive starters, just you're going to get worn out and you're having like, yeah, so they're down force linebackers.
So every Williamson play Ulysses Gilbert, I think, is going to come in.
I don't even you have t J Watt playing.
But that's like basically it.
Yeah, yeah, he's not bad, though.
I like him and then Steven Nelson is gonna come back.
That's nice, but then you're still down.
Show Hayden. That sucks.
Um, it's the safeties are intact, but, I mean, you're down just four linebackers, that that's just that's just hard and you're down the starting cornerback.
I mean, it's gonna be a really tall task for the viewers.
I think, to win this game, that's that's the thing against the Bills.
Yeah, it's just because their defense is so banged up in the offense.
Just hasn't been good in the last few weeks.
So, um, they have to do a complete 1 80 from the offensive effort we've seen the last two weeks.
They want to win this game.
That's all I'm gonna say, because the defense, I don't know how good they could be without 45 starters.
You know, we all know how Josh Allen is played great against the 40 Niners.
Looks like a top 10 quarterback within.
You has other weeks where he just looks terrible.
So I mean, I think you're more likely going to get the Josh Allen he saw against 40 Niners because he's growing as a quarterback.
But, you know, they also can't run the ball.
They rely on the passing game.
Um, I got to see if the secondary is up to par with just them.
Just, you know, the linebackers are just so beat up.
Oh, no, it's gonna be a big test.
I mean, yeah, yeah, I think that, like, it's like what I said last week.
It's like, this is this was while they were alive, you know, they were like, I think it was the most questionable one, because you could like several points, like, um like the in the Ravens game.
I know like, you know, like first, like some of these games.
They have they, uh, well, while the winners and win and you play whoever's on your roster, however depleted they are.
But there's these games where you should, um, you should.
You should win by at least 10, but you're winning by five.
So that's, that's kind of like, and that's where they were.
Like, at some point, you're gonna lose a game like that.
Do I think that you're gonna do a complete nosedive? No.
Do I think that there's gonna be, like, a two or three week period where you guys look, It's gonna look like it appears like it's a nosedive, maybe, like maybe.
But I think by the end of the year, you guys will you guys will cover and get people.
You know? They're freaking out. Oh, my God.
That, like the team, is still 11 and one who thought they were going to be 11 and 1 12 weeks into the season.
Don't really think anyone did.
Um, you know, you have idiots.
Of course. Like Colin Coward spewing nonsense.
Don't listen to people like that.
You just is. Ah, hot take machine.
Um, he's just He stinks.
Um, you know, people, people could talk all they want.
You know, all these years already this dealers this year was that, um, you know, just go out there and prove that you go out there and prove that they're not, You know, you 344 33 out of the four games or tough.
I mean, they could still clinch the north this weekend.
Need the Ravens do us a solid and beat the brown, please.
That would be very much appreciated, Andi.
Hopefully the series can take care of business against the Bills, and then we'll have the division locked up.
But they can clinch playoff spot this week to they almost said last week.
But the stupid Greg Williams New York Jets decided to play a weird defense on that last play.
I still love the fact I still love the fact that I still love the fact that the cornerback that for the jet that cover was actually Lamar like named Lamar Jackson.
So but Ravens? No, because, um, no, Because if I remember, right, the, um, the Raiders have a one game lead over the Ravens in the wild card.
I know they have that.
They currently own the tiebreaker because the Ravens are.
They are a game behind the cults and the Dolphins, right? Colds, Dolphins and Raiders.
But they have tiebreaker over, but But they got the tiebreaker over the clothes.
Yeah, I know, but it was also interesting because a lot of people saying Lamar Jackson is going to cost the Ravens a playoff playoff spot.
But it's like, Well, there's a cornerback named Lamar.
Technically, that's true. But it was a cornerback.
Not the quarter, Lamar, but no.
Yeah, I mean, that's right.
The I mean, Greg Williams fired on that one.
Um e I mean that I was watching those games I was, and I was like, Look, I mean, obviously the writer's sort of like need other teams to lose and stuff like that was like it was like Andi was like, Well, I'll talk more about the Browns a little bit later.
It's like we needed to Titans to win.
We needed the the Texans to win.
We needed the Jets to win and we needed the Bengals win and none of those four happened, But, I mean, but, I mean, just But like how? Like, what Dana said, um, balance is balanced as everything should be.
Maybe it flips back to this week and and And then you have I mean, already the Rams beat the Patriots.
Yeah, I think we played the Colts this week.
If I'm not mistaken, Raiders made a cold. Yeah.
The Colts win that game.
The Steelers get in the playoffs because they just need the Raiders lost.
That's one of them they need, I think.
Yeah, I seem to rave.
And I think Chiefs play the Dolphins and the Ravens played the Browns.
I mean, yeah, the chiefs win to the Steelers.
You will get in this weekend officially. Yeah.
That's why, um s so pretty much like there's some favorable matchups.
Unlike last week where we had to law eso, I'll move on to the Ravens here.
Uh, I thought this was a tune up game for Well, I mean, well, but yeah, but it's it's not shocking because the guys that played, um, against the Steelers already had four days rest.
And then the guys the guy came back like, Lamar.
Haven't hadn't practiced in like in a couple weeks.
So that that was to be expected.
Uh, I thought that some of these patterns Lamar Flynn, uh, keep feeding Jake K. Dobbins.
I think that he's going to be a really good player for next couple of years.
He looks like he's getting faster.
I mean, he was just running over, um, defended.
Hughes was running over Dallas guy defenders all day long.
And then I think, What what else was there about? Oh, I think it talks to you.
That's like it seemed like Dallas is running events is not good on guy.
Know that, Lamar Only through for 117 yards, but when you rushed for 294 you really don't need to throw the ball like you.
You don't need to throw the ball because Dallas is, um, defense was giving that Ravens running Lee into the size of Texas.
I mean, like, it is one of those.
It was it was just big run after big run.
Uh, one thing I will say, though, Um, one thing I will say is that the Ravens definitely do need a born receiver, but a lot of people are saying they need a 50 50 guy like a guy who's like 63 200 like guy.
Like those types of guys, they need one of those mirror to me.
They need a guy who's, um, more like a mirror to Lamar.
Like, Did you see that touchdown passed? Markey's That's a pass.
Watch the replay again.
So watch how Lamar, when Lamar decides to move to the left, You see, marquees kind of see that.
And then so he kind of turns around and so So he kind of goes to the outside part of the end zone, and he's see Lamarque.
And it was a perfect pass right in there.
So I mean, he definitely needs receiver.
Who could do that? I mean, it'll be great to see, um, Big 50 50 guy, but he definitely needs more of a like a route runner.
Which leads me into the whole Dez Bryant situation.
So apparently he tested eso.
He had an inconclusive test.
It had a rapid test that came back positive.
Then he was taken out of the game and then, um, and then whine and Twitter.
And then that never turns out well.
And then he and I think he's had three negative test the last few days I'm using.
Yeah, and then I don't believe in conspiracy theories, but I don't know that it was just And I don't know if he's gonna play against Cleveland.
I don't know if he I don't know what the whole situation with him and um for that game would be, but And for what were your thoughts on that Cleveland? Because for me, I thought Baker had a great and Cleveland Browns had a great first half and then they almost blew That blew that lead because it went from 30 to 7 to 41 35.
We'll that last touchdown was the garbage time touchdown.
They scored seconds left.
So it's gonna be a double digit win and get that Tennessee defense sucks That units bad.
They got torched, that whole having me, they really did with that what they did.
Uh, I would describe it.
I mean, the Steelers in that exact same thing to them in the first half, they just placed the Titans defense.
It was a bad unit.
You, like, said he did have good half, and then they struggled a bit in the second half.
But the Titans are always a second half team.
I also kind of think that Titans are a little bit of frauds.
I think they're good, but they're not, like, super good.
I think like a team like the Bills is better at a team like the Dolphins is better than the Titans.
They're just a weird team to me.
Um, but you know, Cleveland.
I mean, they started to turn my turn My head, I think a little bit, you know, it a little bit of pro with them.
I think they're better than what some people think they are.
But you know, the big question always do them is what Baker, Mayfield, You know, O b j is out.
You know, we'll see how they do now against you guys because you guys blew them out in Baltimore.
Now you get to have them in Cleveland, so that's gonna be really interesting.
I mean to me, like I I think that Cleveland is a good team, but to me, um, I don't think that they're quite at, like Kansas City or Pittsburgh or not or Buffalo.
I mean, like to me like that, something like a lot of a lot of like Cleveland a great game like they had they had.
They had an exceptional first house, like let's let's beyond They're like they had an exceptional first half and then they did what they had to do in the second half Thio to win the game.
I mean, so you can't really say anything about that.
How Ravens match up to them.
I mean, we're getting back Jude on.
We're getting back, Andrews.
We're getting backs need.
So almost every I think everyone should be back for this game except for Dez.
Ah, these last three games Cleveland, Dallas and Pittsburgh.
We're always gonna be the interesting because, like football players are creature of routine.
So like seeing like having a game pushed back in tow Wednesday and then having a practice squad guys and then having a four day resting and playing, uh, Cowboys and then having a six day rest.
And and not only that, you're you're also missing some players one day, and then some of them are coming back for the Cowboys.
Some are coming back for Cleveland and then you don't know like how they're gonna look if if they haven't practiced eso, it's gonna let me see.
I think that up The key is to stop to slow down.
Nick Shab and ah, Kareem Hunt enough that the Browns can't use play action because that's typically how they've been able to get guys wide open with, especially with friends.
I mean, if you can.
So I mean seeing Kelly's Campbell, who clearly was not 100% like you could see him like, I think he said he was like, 85% for the Dallas game so we don't he is.
So he, uh, if you could get close to 100 that's gonna be a huge help.
But I mean, and I know a lot of people were bringing up while the Ravens run defense Ravens defense, giving up the points.
But you have to keep in mind that they haven't been healthy.
I mean, Clay's Campbell went out after the first Siri's against the Colts, and that was three or four games ago like he only just returned against Cowboys Brandon Will Williams came creates and he just came back against the Cowboys.
I mean that the line has been Derek Wolfe and whoever else.
I mean, so I mean, that's bay.
So that some So it's a little deceptive.
I mean, hopefully Jimmy Smith comes back.
Uh, I mean, yes, I mean, so that's to be tough.
I mean, it's gonna be tough for game, but then for the Ravens, after this game, we have Jacksonville Giants and then, uh, the Bardelas Bengals.
I mean, you should be able to get in, even if you you will win this game to probably get in the playoffs on Ben, You should win your last few, too.
You know, it looks like Lamar Ming Lamar had so much fun last year, like you could tell him he was like, smiling.
He was like, Yeah, he was, like, smiling.
The whole team was in a good mood, and this year it seemed more like it's more depressed by saying you're you're starting to see this team like, Yeah, I feel happy.
And maybe it's because, like a bunch of those guys haven't played in a couple weeks.
So maybe they rediscover the joy.
So if this team can bring their own energy for, uh, dance Cleveland, I think this could be a scary team to indiscretion the playoffs because defend like they got the playoff experience.
This Lamar is still Lamar Jackson.
I mean, um, I just don't get I just don't like I don't get how he's, like, so criticized.
I mean, I mean, yeah, they're issues with his game like, let's all be honest here.
There are issues with this game.
Do I think that over in the long run, his like he's, Is he going to be a consistent guy who can throw outside two numbers, like 40 yards outside the numbers type of throat? No, but Lamar such a great athlete that if you just told him that, Okay, we're going to use the middle of the field, uh, short, intermediate and long, and then occasionally hit those deep shots outside to numbers.
I think he could do that.
Yeah, I mean, so for me, that's what I would dio.
And obviously they definitely need to work on obviously the offensive line and then, uh, the receivers.
But I will say this with the offensive flying Ben Powers has really impressed me.
He had that good game against the Steelers last year.
He's been he's been the right guard last couple of times.
So I mean, and Ronnie, Ronnie Stanley is our long term tackle.
When he comes back next year, Orlando's are long term right tackle.
If we can extend him, um, if you could extend him if Powers can kind of go into that right guard role.
I mean, just it sets sets us up pretty well for the future because we don't have to, like, replace a couple of guys on the old line.
But, I mean, that's what, um, that to me, that's what's kind of that's That's kind of my thoughts on the whole thing.
And then, obviously seeing Andrews, I think if you have, if you have him on family, too, like I do start him because this is a guy that hey, I think he had one or two touchdowns in Week one.
He had another touchdown.
Think he's had a touchdown against the Browns each game.
The last Thio two years? Uh, right.
This is a guy that s so he should have a big game.
But I mean, if the Ravens could get the run game set up And I think, uh, yeah, I think if the Ravens get to run game set up with Dobbins especially, um, and Gus, I worked for a long run and then use I like Mark Ingram, but use him or like, you know how a team uses a closer like we just need three out.
We just need three more outs and we're just gonna bring in the closer.
Yeah, I would think, Rivera, but yeah, I mean, you know what I mean? Like, he's a guy you bring in later into the game when everyone else is tired.
But But if they can, if they can focus on the run to set up the past, play action to Andrews and needed some of these other guys and they can leave and the team start to forget about Duvernay, approach a and then, um, Brown and then maybe marquees brown if he's on the on the slant rounds.
I mean, this is a team that they could put up points and yeah, like if this team does start to resemble what it was last year, I mean, I don't think they will get past Kansas City because each of the last three games I mean first game was closed a couple years ago.
Last year it was somewhat closed, but Ravens couldn't convert on two point conversions.
And then this year it wasn't even close.
I mean, so I mean, I could see the Ravens coming to the playoffs, winning a playoff game and, uh, and then losing the next round, which honestly, would be five.
Which I'll be fine with because it would get off that stupid narrative that Lamar can't win a playoff game.
Yeah, I mean, and so that's also insane because, like it took Peyton Manning six years to win a playoff game, it took Jim Kelly, um, the same amount of time it took John Elway four years from the playoff family.
These air more traditional quarterbacks like Lamar, still 23 years old, mobile on developing.
So give him a break here.
And he's doing the best he can with training wheels.
With Greg training wheels Roman as the offensive coordinator, pretty much.
Oh, yeah, that's the one thing again.
That's the one thing Ravens Steelers fans can can come together It's like both of our offensive coordinator suck.
Yeah, Well, yeah, right.
Randy, Speaker is literally just looks like this person from, uh, this news report that I put a team out on Twitter last week.
He's just He sucks.
I can't I'm done with him, but yeah, baby, let it go. Suck.
Um, did you wanna dio Did you wanna dio baseball? You wanna do the big bto after the quick baseball wants to Pretty much, um, the feeling. Yeah.
Z which contracts? Oh, no, no, no, no, not Trevor may.
He already saw on him.
Um, there was a There was a picture I thought that signed, um, this week, I think.
Where was a hitter? I'm not really sure, but I know David Dombrowski went, you know, Adam even went to the White Sox.
Former national, of course.
Yeah, Yeah, I guess they want Lucas Giolito on when I got traded to the White Sox as well.
They're building a solid team over there.
That's gonna be a They got a top arm system, so it's gonna be very interesting.
That's gonna be a good team.
Pretty soon s I'm excited for them.
Um, yeah, David Dombrowski's.
Obviously, the big news of the day goes to the Phillies.
He's been around baseball forever.
And, boy, do they need new leadership in there because the Phillies just haven't done it.
It's not, You know, it's not Tom Brosque because he decimated the Tigers farm system and then, uh, and he went to the Red Sox, decimated their farm system.
Fortunately, the Phillies storm system is trash to begin with, so we can't get any further.
So if they read the rest of Bryce Harper's career there Oh, you should ask for a trade.
Probably he's not gonna win anything there.
I mean, that's the thing, because the owner said, Oh, we have this stupid like we could spend money stupidly and then a year later oh, we're cash for I know, Yeah, gotta here.
It's just so yeah, but I mean the national, that's all there.
And I think in Kyle Schwarber that's nothing out of the ordinary.
Then you know bad.
And hopefully he can have a bounce back here, um, there and then the Rule five for the Orioles Got a couple of guys in the Rule five.
I mean, you're getting in from the Rule five.
I mean, don't expect too much from The only thing I will say is that because there is no minor league season last this year, a guy who was like one of the guys that I was like 25 years old and was able, like do keep in mind that there was no minor league season this year, he probably would have been in Double A.
And if he wasn't Double A, we don't know what his numbers will look like.
And if he had similar numbers, you probably would be like Orioles fans would probably be happy about it.
We did end up losing, um, Zak Pop, one of the guys we got from the Machado deal and any guy great Venter, who like a 25 year old guy who was in a ball.
So I mean, Pop definitely hurt because he he could definitely be like 1/7 or eighth inning arm type of guy.
But he's kind of like a right handed Zach Britton like that's like, so if you want to think of him like, um, fastball can hit 97 98 power sinker, he's that type of reliever, but great Venter is was Hey, was he was, I think I mentioned like the Orioles have a ton of pitching prospects.
He was like on the bottom of that list, like he's good, But there's like about 15 8.
There's a 10 12 names I can think of before he can't before Ventures.
Name comes into play.
So I mean, nothing Thio.
Nothing to lose too much for their And then, um so they got back.
The first guy they got back was like a 25 year old pitcher.
He's the nephew of Ben McDonald, who is the current one of the Orioles, Um, broadcasters.
And he was actually the first.
I think the only other guy other than Attlee Rochman to be a number one pick by them.
So maybe I think maybe they got a nice scouting report from him.
I mean, seems like a guy like 127 strikeouts in 110 innings.
I mean, that's pretty good.
Like, that's a little over a strikeout over, um, printing kids.
I like the fact that it's like 100 27 strikeouts in 29 walks.
I mean, that's good control.
I mean, three pitch mix.
And then the second guy they got was Tyler Wells.
And the first thing that stood out to me was the fact that he's 6868 and a starter.
So this was a guy like 2.
But, I mean, both of you guys were probably bullpen arms, Um, which is where I would put them.
But I mean, 68 I wonder what his velocity is because you're If you're 68 during 97 98 that's a That's just not fair.
Yeah, it's not at all.
Hey, I know he had Tommy John surgery, um, eso, which is why he didn't have any numbers in 2019.
But, I mean, that's really all for baseball.
And then we can go straight into football.
So, yeah, I watch tomorrow, that's for sure.
I mean, I turned it on a bit last week.
The players were actually really impressing me, was actually happy with the effort against Clemson.
It's just the coaching socks, man.
I mean, I just I can't I can't watch a coach the front take core Nelson coach team anymore.
You know, I'm sure you looked at Tech scoop last night.
There's a lot of smoke.
It looks like it's probably gonna come doing that next week.
Um, God willing, I mean, hoping they get Tony Elliott.
There's a lot of things will smoke, though they can pull that off.
That would be the highest of the century, I think.
But I think probably there's money problems with that one, because I think he'll want a lot of money, but yeah.
I mean, I think the best case scenario here for this game and beat the hell out of U va and then just fire the coach.
What? You gotta dio I think that's what's gonna happen.
Yeah, no, I would say is I agree with you.
Tony Elliott is probably the best choice.
I mean, like I said, I think, And in case any of you always want to know why, uh, pretty much we decided we had a couple of episodes ago where we were talking about it.
But all this parrot all this to say, the quick cliff conversion.
Basically, he's the offensive coordinator in Clemson.
He's been recruiting a lot in the Virginia area, which is a talent rich area, which is one of the biggest, which is my biggest issues one day that we haven't been able to get in talent.
Uh, we have a we have lost a ton of in state talent and and Clemson has recruited a ton of those guys.
So I would say he's definitely, um, really good for their.
And I think he, um if he moves to, if he coaches taxes, it's almost like a, um it's almost like a Kirby smart situation where he went from Alabama.
So that may not be interesting.
What was, um let me let me just bring up this name.
Um, I think I texted you this as well, but saying If it seems like Elliot, um, it's name people bring up Will Healy's another name.
People bring up a swell.
Um, I don't think it's Luke fickle.
I think it's gonna come down. E.
I don't I think will come down to money independent and depending on what Harbaugh what Jim Harbaugh does.
I mean, he might be in favor for that Michigan job.
Watch out for the same Charles was Charlie Charles Huff.
Yeah, they were talking about that on text keep last night on the terror dome and just to let you guys know who Charles Charles Hoff is.
I Yeah, Charles Hoff.
Um, he's on the younger side 37 years old, the law, like, of course, but he's from the region.
He was at Penn State before Alabama.
He And that was when it was getting a lot of he was a guy that recruited sake.
Want Barkley and Mild Sanders.
Um, so, yeah, he's like the number one.
I think he's like one of the 10 best recruiters in the country.
And then, um and he has been recruiting a lot, especially when he was at Penn State, like recruiting a lot in the Virginia area.
So that's gonna be That'd be great.
Um, and I think we'll kind of talk a little bit, too.
Shane Beamer stuff.
Shane Beamer going to South Carolina.
He would be like a Shane Beamer thing where you will you will be able to get him out it at less than you would for Tony Elliott.
It would heavily depend on who you get as the offensive and defensive coordinator because I know people are bringing in Joe Morehead, I believe who's at Mississippi State now? Um, as as potential offensive coordinator, uh, Charlie, Strong as a potential defensive coordinator that that would be interesting.
Um, so I mean, I It's like I said, Don't be.
Don't be shocked if it's Charles, Huh? Because Tony Elliott, it might be.
His name is also been mentioned the Vanderbilt job as well, so we don't know.
But then Charl and then But it was hubs.
Name has been mentioned with South Alabama, but then again, you get if Tech offers him of opportunity or South Alabama offering an opportunity, especially from being from the region, I would assume you would take the tech job over South Alabama.
I think so, too.
Yeah, I think that would be the easy choice, friend.
So it's like and then yeah, And people are saying on 247 like you could hire Charles tough and like that 2.
75 million range, which would give you maybe what, two million a piece? Um, no.
Two million totals bend on.
Uh, a very strong experience office defensive coordinator.
So they have to go experience for their coordinators if you're gonna go bringing him.
And I think that would move Justin Hamilton to the secondaries coach again.
Yeah, I think so.
There, if he still has Tech, I mean, I feel like I like Hamilton.
I thought that he did a good job.
Especially the first quarter, first two quarters.
Yeah, he was doing good.
I mean, maybe he was a guy that in three or four years could be a good defensive coordinator, but we made him like we made him to er like we promoted early.
It's too early for him.
Yeah, I think he's gonna have to go back.
Thio position coach for Elliott.
I'm sure he would bring someone from Clemson to be his offensive coordinator.
Ah, lot of people brought up Streeter who is, I believe, one of the quarterbacks coach or another guy, but I feel like, um, Dabbagh would just move him to offensive coordinator so? So we wouldn't be able to take too many guys from Clemson.
Uh um, it's gonna move on, and I think we can move on Thio, Shane Beamer.
But because I was think e can't remember who he would go as offensive.
Well, we could move on. Shane Beamer.
I know a lot of Tech fans wanted.
Shane Beamer is to coach.
I I think that the last name would have Yeah, and if you're a Whit Bab****, imagine if Shane is not a good first.
Not a good coach like Imagine the blowback you would get for having fire.
I mean, at least at least with South Carolina.
Like if he if he's good at South Carolina and Tech does kind of re emerge a little bit, you could offer him the job like in 5 to 10 years and not, like, not have them like the, uh, not have not have the risk of have first time head coach who happens to be the legendary Frank Beamer's son type of thing.
But she just wasn't the right fit here, you know, have them go to a school in South Carolina.
There's expectations there and see how he does.
You know, he's a better fit there.
It's all there is to it.
Yeah, and in a few names, he's brought up Lincoln Riley's brother as an offensive coordinator.
Um, and I think Charlie Charlie Wiles is It has been mentioned as a potential name.
Uh, stint offering Brian Stein.
Spring has been pretend named his potential option.
Their offspring die.
What e It was a terrible offensive Victorian historian.
Graeme be an option there.
Yeah, Yeah, I and I know a lot of people are brought up.
What? Uh, Foster? I don't think, but Foster was He's he's done.
People need Thio Chill with that.
So I mean, anything, we we covered that one.
Uh, what I would say is on then some of the some something on the recruiting side.
We did get a receiver like a big three receiver way.
Uh, Heavenly is expected to commit any time now.
I'm according to have been Watkins Way.
Which one? Kevin Lee he's gonna be committing, I think before Saturday.
That's that's a big flip, because I think he's like a top 10 defensive line. Yeah.
Defensive tackle in George? No.
Was it Georgia? No, I don't know.
But he was He is more than I think.
The top 10 defensive like tackles in the country, if I'm not mistaken, right? Yeah, I mean? Yeah, the recruiting class won't be great.
Um, I mean, what I mean, what for whoever the new coach is, who do you think we what area do you think? More important, Like someone who could get this team competing.
Someone who could recruit really well because no one who can recruit really well, but then just get them right back on track.
I think those were the recruit person and get back on track second.
I mean, that's gonna be really That's, um Yeah, that's going Thio.
That's gonna be the tough thing.
I mean, I'm all for uh huh.
As a head coach, if you like, like people around him and then, yeah, like for their for, like, 5, 10, 15 years.
And even if he's plucked by another bigger school, I mean the least means that Archie he's rebuilt this program, so yeah, I mean, that's always good to see.
And then we can move on.
We could We could talk a little bit about basketball.
The basketball program, we Obviously, we lost.
We lost to Penn State.
Um, that makes its like, like what we were saying last week with with text the basketball team.
They just couldn't like.
When they get, they often will have these cold streaks.
Yeah, they like where they can't couldn't shoot. I mean, pens.
They also held the Penn State was hitting every shot that they took That that was just ridiculous.
So I would say that, um I mean, so for me.
Yeah, that's that.
It is predicted.
I mean that it was one game dio I don't fly.
I don't, uh What was that? I'm trying to ceo who they play next.
Checking garbage schools if I'm not mistaken.
Um, uh, We're not good.
I know they're not great teams.
Yeah, it's like a tuna period before the A C c uh, part of the schedule.
I mean, I think this team is gonna be good.
I think that, um we have to watch out for those cold streets because a team like good teams can.
Good teams will take advantage of something like that in this bill.
The lead. That's just to insurmountable.
I mean, I was watching the Ravens Cowboys game.
Yeah, I was thio stuff too attention to that and then, um, and went out and then Oh, yeah, it's one on.
And then some of the other stuff.
I think that speaking of the Cowboys, I thought that it was really indicative that, um, that the cowboys and 40 Niners game from anything in a couple weeks, Got pushed, got flexed.
No, I'm like, a hard pass, everybody.
That's just No, it's like the Browns and Giants.
You know, I want to see them get back in the playoffs and And what? All right.
So you thought that the try, like the being and Seahawks styles just a fluke.
Oh, yeah, I kind of waas.
I mean, Russell Wilson has one of his worst games of the year.
Russell Wilson, if you cost me my fantasy playoff matchup going to be really upset, I'm gonna be really upset.
I mean, like, I like, I like like Well, like I said, beginning the show, Antonio gets and stop me from hanging the that one sucks right there.
I mean, I mean, I'm just hoping that, um I'm just trying.
I'm just hoping that I get to the next round.
How does it too? we play after for two weeks or do you set your roster weeks? Okay, so whoever I said like okay, yeah, I assume that's what it was because I just set my roster to assume, um could switch out a couple of guys just thio.
See how I had either the Seahawks defense or the same defense.
I didn't like one of the matchups for one of the teams.
I mean, so it'll be interesting to see how that works.
Um, but I mean yeah, so e guess that will end the show.
