I've been here twelve years I don't have an office. And it's true all right well hey folks. Nice to nice to be here. Peers it's gonna snow again so before it does we'll decent sports talk Korea the we had snow apocalypse coming in of those hospitals JCB ice this time just know what some more inches though four inches could be long and decent growth. She's in. And attack gas snowed just snow would be fine guy that I don't mind snow at all but that that was judged yet. How is it for use in the woods. On the ice loaded did you see the ice that was here. I didn't see the guys I cannot go out in the ice I don't mind snow I have no problem driving in it IA'S_Q. and suck a lemon. So I just I hunkered in on Saturday and did nothing. You know I felt like so blazers postpone their game you know yeah. This pretty dodging and police were I was I was it Saturday night. Yeah where I've by Saturday night it was OK but Saturday morning. Sunny morning was that very morning and afternoon I went out to get to I would add to the agreed Fred Meyer to buy it readies Freddy I know that they get an assortment of whatever it's Bible they have everything it's like a food and stuff yeah I don't like I would in most of my stuff phrases so amazing you confuse mile man really in the old drops Wren yeah there on the way back to town that are back to sign an hour. The homeland. But we locked into you know he Glock in different spots of Fred Meyer guests who walked into the spot where there's issues in the close and he said women who. This isn't Fred Meyer if you know it is look up pick up. Jack lots of things happen it is Fred Meyer I'm not all. I by eight. 90% of my food and probably 40% in my stuff at Fred Meyer throw it in there to pick up the various. Sundays that you need there and in and on Saturday night that went out and it was OK but it was they were still spots. Like where I was turning onto my side street where there were some good fish tailing going on but I kind of do it on purpose because it was fun there's nothing to hit and it was it was still pretty slick but on Saturday morning I went outside and my entire drive way you know was a sheet of ice into that that gets them out of my car. And I almost like a mile lane I almost felt like two times let's long driveway you know I don't I know I love the moat like you and but EI idea abandon the trip to be the cars the entire thing was ice yet take puberty or male buddy rice is screwed bats and I went back inside and yeah no it. We had same promised in effect my dad's slid down the driveway but he managed at 74 years old stay on his feet we could go meatball slid down the driveway and fell directly is that cast doubt yeah. Coffee everywhere it was announced what I don't Matt ward in sun river a couple of weeks ago would that mean you could. Well I was died did you see Matt Moore tweeted that licked from now on I'm called when you get smoked that's getting Matt Mort anyway it was the well. During this trip green but I feel bad because I think Trent Green may have died from his not signing Kansas City news I'm Matt Moore came back in the game so I feel like we can laugh about LA with a little bit more to some turn green yeah. Personal hotline. And he is beautiful children well he's one of those guys. But Trent green's one of those guys don't you worry about his concussions don't don't shed a tear to bring him what he's doing really well when he goes though that family is gorgeous you feel like he's lived a good life rig I met your legs someone should have taken turns green and just said look you're gonna down the field so now I've. I've taken to colony getting Matt Moore and yup I eat I aided in the you know on the ice out there in invent. It was it was one of those falls where. We talked about as we've gone there's two types of falls we knew he even on the ice they're the ones we popped right back up and try to pretend like you didn't bog you. And hopefully no one side you play it off there are meant to do that it is here is lesbian Larry you like your Chevy Chase at that point. And then there's the other one where. It rattles your dome a little bit and you have to stay on the ground for good you AK are just gonna sit here in the snow and ice. And just get all dirty because on the need an energy here to compose myself. And I got Matt Moore I had to take a minute to be on the ground and sense then. When I see the race is drew back at Golda inside give a healthy respect for the eyes I do rule. I took a real cavalier attitude walking across to an antique store and and it cost me. Yeah it's like being a little kid you know and little kids Thalmann it's like the 32 take inventory period before they either ball or like Fiat that they're fine yeah it's like that. In its take inventory and see what's going on to body up and down likely didn't follows can tell you is. So it felt like to meet Saturday night it was fine. But the blazers cancel the game anyway maybe there are worried about what is can be like when it let out of the game could be. Because Sunday it seem like it was worse. And yet they played the game but then by Sunday night but he was is fine games trying everything was latest findings Syria I just thought it was weird like it seem like. During the day that they postponed it. Like they they chose the wrong night to play that game on I think everybody in the end I don't think it is. I think everyone was jammed up because can you imagine when we had the snow apocalypse whatever that was the the ice storm that shut down the city. Imagine trying to play a basketball game in that you'd have nine people appear read because you were not giving into downtown we went Sunday in there about then I think the attendance reported on the thing was like thirteen thousand it was definitely not yeah. He is typical game yeah but the roads were fine. Mean it was clean backgrounds were little icy slick still but it was like it was just like it was raining the people I just think that. It was though was a wake up to people Lisa was like I wasn't gonna go out and it I didn't know if it was bad. I took a look outside as like IC I've got nowhere to go I wasn't going to see the pistons play. Like it really was not bad yeah I really wasn't I can totally understand. The person who looked at their driveway in the did their that streets and when I'm not going on there the idea that but once you've got. I mean the freeways is it was it was as if it was. This is like rain yeah it was it was it wasn't bad at all. But at. You know I don't know what point did that switch and that's kind of the deal is she being about the old the tricky buckles there in his comments about we told you not to go out plays Emmett Charles hailed a day about Charles tail are ex mayor yeah I think he's that we warned you what you told us not to go out this time too and it turned out to be finds its. I announced Sunday morning I can't blame people for not. Having the full understanding of whether or not it's bad out there as you talk to ten different people. That's her oh it's bad you don't know well don't act like you don't test the ice outside your driveway yeah we all did it. You go can I can't give a little gas here. If it happens. In duke appeared to. Yeah I entire car was covered in a sheet of ice and that was enough for me to gag not going anywhere today well Jason you weren't the only one. Jason was the whole region overeat and now they're saying more snow is coming our way. Whatever so Kelly field it don't you think people are getting better now I can say for tomorrow I can already tell that I'm not gonna be snowed in and I will know you are not sick. Clark County gets the least of the snow look I just don't think governor making guys in the gum and take the mayor's advice and just they all. Meanwhile west side is supposed to get the worst of the so I moved to the west side you did know that but that's I've got a little love nest over there and I'll. I'll be there tomorrow just won't be able to get out island pretty far north sides then you didn't hear what this new era live I live on the top of the in the mountains county misery.

Again if you told me right now that we get that next year for the national title game sign me up with your rubber match while I'd I would go that far. Alabama can go as far as on the Internet but they're really get in nightclubs and go way too because I don't like to have though but that's a hell of a game that did that they played. And inter Alia. Well let's start there shelling that's probably the news today and I would probably be given a sports show out there would start with that and we'll start with snow apocalypse which you know that's you know it's what we do but now we've transitioned into sports it's already snowing according to our roving reporters on the street and in the southwest down in the West Hills and such yet that's where I live now so I blog won't be making it in tomorrow.

No matter doing better I feel like down I think we're ready for a giant blizzard I do feel like the the ice storm. Whatever you call that the other day I do you feel like that was pre season game number one in it looked a little Buckley and we've and we've readout before you know it. In the final set. And there are doing a whole lot that's. No no no I don't do and I send best cities for traffic for first no traffic in Portland's going to be on the I think were at this point we're just happy if were in the conversation of playoffs because the bottom line is we step two lanes of freeway going to I know. Of our city plan so I I I don't think that we're ever championship contenders ideally you don't hear yeah let's do this in the Indy immortal words. Of mr. armour. Salina central sophomore algebra teacher. Let's get to go on here let's get to go time to get to go winning and we have hot song lion and leaves today did you see this. Yeah that's not mean.

They get smacked his yes they do who do that's why there was the cultural epicenter of the midwest. Not many and vocal but now you do now. Myself but we'll tell you about it it's 315 we'll start with the talk of last night's thrilling. College football finale. Trent Dilfer in two hours to be on at 515 live full of such yep those NFL playoff games this weekend. Here on the fan.

I mean it's just. It's a bevy of fun. As some web sites tend to be. Of which pac twelve football team are you buying the most futures are hot now that's dramatically correct I feel like it is let's go to. Where is greater your grammar rodeo champion Jason swagger and when we need him. A while we have actually we have been we have an English professor Portland State who listens and he's been calling me up for years written for poor grammar. And he catches me like you know that actually. China and India ever heard you know I learned from him. He called me on his way back when I was and where Mike is an audience of the phones like an idiot he actually called the if he called as a hero to slow us now. You know they Bieber heard people say. Begs the question. Yeah this begs the question yeah. He tell me that you should say that what is CDs raises this raises the question. Well I would like to thank everyone for being so pretentious that you have to call someone out on something insignificant like say begs the quest hang when year we knew our aid professional radio broadcaster graduation in your C I think I loved it I for one thank him I said thank you. Keep me honest this is I wanna Ziegler radical look at the shortcomings of others professor I want a legal matter grammatically correct. Seek on the other hand we all know is not know and does not care no Norton I've I really don't. But I believe radio host should care and so therefore I think that that's grammatically correct but I'm not positive ideas and do my best. I'm of how many am a drum beat team or English did little my daughter fact semi between today's talking about. English majors which is just basically code for unemployable. I like philosophy but with maybe you could actually teach is a little more practicality to it but not much. You know vanity you gonna go spend 200000 dollars to get in English degree have fun with that. It's it's a new year Jason you need to you need to turn that frown upside down let's all have good rosy outlooks and tell were squashed by the world. Within the next couple weeks till 2017 episodes when he eighteen kicks us down just like 2016 did we should all be optimistic at this point you don't sound it sir who's died yesterday. Was it that a lot of people yeah we have the first I think celebrity death I was trying to pick who was well obviously we're off to a good start because you came remember who it is river now I feel bad right now gotta look at I'm sure the person's great rest in peace that. We don't memory to be another big a deal. I got to find out who was right continuing what at what point remaking before we got derailed before he started beans and negative yet with your bad attitude. And that attitude of winter pac twelve football team are you buying the most futures. I got a lot of options on here for now because there are twelve pac twelve football out. I put there did you really only because they're without a coach Leggett sunny nicest other gas near your body go in the other category of Sonny dykes is is still there beaten. But USC you know them as Southern California I do you know them Stanford Oregon Washington cal Colorado Washington State. Everybody else goes in the other category. And I apologize if that's your school but knowing cares about Arizona Arizona State. I UCLA even down there so I Utah's in their so vote at 1080 the fan dot com the season is over in states than there. I know I put her to sit on the 08. I now you do and I did not there's an overnight or do you son of the BI did worries. Ominous swap out or is it for accountant and I should probably do I meant to put oriented only gave humans by in the future cal right now here's the good news the good news is I can do changes I have that kind of power. So I will do that. But college football is over that is it. Yeah that's the only bad part of like last night is great college for a football championship game and now we got nothing. Yes we can sit there and fret over where an eighteen year old gonna go we get all hot and bothered about recruiting no thanks you know it's bad rumor are starting in the let's start. REM beyond threatened to Deb bam and Florida State right. Yeah demos want what he won't just go right to that. I've got they got you to what else will I meet with the document again yeah we should talk about the game we are talking about future's already I'm doing. The answer to that is Washington. I yeah yeah. Boston USC product but I put audio orient the a lot of people feeling good about the dikes yeah unknown until I see Willie Taggart a doctor Taggart apple. Again I'm not. I'm not digging Willie Taggart has had two winning seasons won a western Kentucky and one at South Florida well you're not duck fans know you are following their purity as the blind your pants are tight about seventeen year old bullies he may end up being great you were there any miniscule but I'm certainly not gonna bet on him right now which is also why I'm gonna take Washington over USC. You see was better than Washington. Towards the end of the year and if you wanted the best represented in the pac twelve. In the football playoff that should have been USC they didn't deserve it but. You know that was the best team at the end of the year but I think the fact you have Chris Peterson. Who is to me a known commodity and I think one of the three or four best coaches in college football and clay Helton is still a relative unknown. Remember Lane Kiffin won ten games one year USC and had a pre season number one the whole thing fell apart and he was doing was mother sanctions there but. I can't say that I I have eight a total shaping clay Helton he may end up be the guy but. It that's an easy answer for me and that's that's Washington with with Chris Peters. I'm so vote I'd change it added that vastly beauty split on no more cal forget them. Well it's kind of seemed did. Countless right out at the end even higher but or in states on there's a vote at 1080 the fan dot com DM college football season. Wound down last night with a thriller I've heard many people today well. As such an exaggeration I heard one person say because of all needed that. That type of. We had a last year to me it was the two dose or two best teams in college ball back to back years and either one of those games could've gone either way Clemson could have been back to back national champs Alabama could have been back to back national champs. The end of split them think there's really illusory and that and if those teams played ten times they probably split them five piece. The margin for air is so narrow. The the difference in that game to meet though openly just came bounded to quarterback play you'll Dino de Shawn Watson was was was great the second half. And I think Alabama's don't feel for a hundred plus plays. Their defense just weren't well I don't care who you are you can't play a hundred snaps against an athletic team like that you just got worn down so. When you look at the fact that I think it was eleven or twelve straight third downs that Alabama didn't convert. We even need points on those drives if biggest converted. On third downs and kept. 45 of those drives going and given their defense when he lets snaps Alabama probably wins that game going away by ten points. But they didn't twining was twelve straight third down the didn't convert and at the end or use our Alabama have no pass rush it's the most under rated. Aspect of football rushing the quarterback is tiring it is hell. And Alabama for all they're doing their greatest on defense they don't run a deep rotation when it comes their pass rushers. And whether as Anderson whether it was Jonathan Allen those guys just wore out. In the fourth quarter and could not consistently run or rush the quarterback they were having to blitz. And Rubin Foster was beat up and was an effective rushing the quarterback there and in those final couple drives. And Clemson was fresh and took advantage of that was the difference in the game. And I really felt like and I don't know if it was Sartre fit Lane Kiffin you know would have been any differently I thought they were so damn conservative and I thought it came back to bite him in the. You'll there's a lot of thing EU EU Marty had thrown out like ten maintained via pager for what it's. Why did take him for what you want that there's no less I was I was feverishly jutting notes so that we can go through them one by one I think we can explore each and every one of those. But I thought both defense has ward now get in that may be a product of the fact that it is game play. 1516. For these teams we played twelve regular season conference title. So game fifteen yeah four. Album includes Alabama crimson and while we have in the reason I says because we covered organ when they went to the title game. All the way Italian very first college football. Playoff where they beat Florida State and then they win loss to Ohio State in I remember. And we were in Ohio State soccer until after they want same thing I got those teams who were gassed I did just works bulls used to bowl teams said the same thing there just and I know lane on the floor and it's so if you're saying that he did defensive pass rush of all the guys on the field. Did this the guys who are gonna Wear down particularly if they're if they're getting more plays in game number fifteen more. They're they're gonna Wear down pass and any other guy on the field yes it's those guys and I thought both deep in habitable to diseases in other words of that game keeps going. For another two quarters. It's going to be just a testament to centrist is QB Oklahoma was a game Oklahoma. The game where we went through that game on can uses percent is that there'll Cuomo I think it was oh yeah Texas Tech specialist that's what that game would have become. Because the defense is were were just gassed but Clemson. I had the ball last year. And and made and that's all the made one more play and then so I thought the Scarborough injury was was big kids in the in the second half. Had he been healthy I think some of those third down due gig converted and Alabama's defense probably get the blower to all right Lola. Start with a all those items are gonna talk about this game put a bow on the college football season you can test. 55305. Texture thoughts almost as game five by three of five and we'll discuss more Trent Dilfer coming up at 515 and there's Mike. Ten feet below for our weather bros are telling us that we're getting reports of snow now 160 witness our fourteenth L so stop what you're doing dinner and that's right in my neck of the woods I live right there and had a bar at critical right to live in the West Hills. Now I have bull I have multiple residents like I said it was a love net. In the West Hills okay. Our permanent residents and three takes as others. And that's right go in and I spoon with Iraq. At some boundary detects here were to get to back down you brought up several talking points from last night's thrilling. Cap to the pretty forget able college football season and a couple people brought that up severely Kosovo kind of really did need that because it's it was a lame play out semi final season. And it was a lame bulls' season was coming beard. Calls for policies and just wasn't all that memorable. And so this game oh caps and off it was exciting end. If you didn't see it Clemson one guys 3531. Last second score amazing. First not that you brought up was. I'd just the fact that it really sort of came down to quarterback play and I think that's true I mean if he wanted to simplify their game. That was really the difference yet to really good teams two defense is it wore down but June Hertz with freshman quarterback the Alabama. It was a very good in ninety Shawn Watson's one best players in the country in there he got out stills of four point game I think what's in the way I would spin it is. I think that made me realize is I'm I'm one of the guys have been jock in Alabama the whole time like albums gonna win it was gonna cover that's what they do they're that good. And I think they're so good everywhere else that we sort of let slide they're quarterback issue right because. In college unlike the NFL. Not a lot tee not every team can expose that right they only played. I just went back to their schedule I think they played three teams. That could expose. Their quarterback problem and and tournament playoff and they did expose it mean Washington played them very well and made GO hurts look bad. But Washington just couldn't score. And then you know. Clemson and so did every other one was in Q3 quarters Alabama held up with their model of course you know they but it was anything about hurt so he made the played 22 for the go ahead touchdown you encrypt that he he has mean he can run yeah. But again I thought crimes disease is going down an LSU was yellow and LSU alum Tim points. So Alabama is so good everywhere else that. It really wasn't a fact cornerback play for them wasn't really a factor now you saw some flashes from the fresh me a good he's pretty dynamic. It's that we gave and I am is guilty of this is a remake. Gave Alabama a pass for a situation that we should have paid way more attention going into game against. A defense like Clemson is and where the quarterbacks so good on the other side we. I totally. Sort of discredited that storyline and that really was the biggest story line was it what it did come down to quarterback play. In yet I hate Alabama's gonna look back in just just kill themselves on both turn overs. That they they got stupid penalties killed those drives one you got nothing out of it yet when you got three. If Alabama puts one of those touchdowns in that ball game could be over. Uncharacteristic penalties to you know camp Robinson when bit best offensive lineman in college football. False start penalties. If I really thought that in May be a Scarborough doesn't give her maybe this is different. I just thought is bad is is the quarterback play was that Alabama would just. Wear them out running the football but Scarborough got her Scarborough got hurt and none of the had been attacked and that was a huge factor if if he gets if he's healthy I think that's a different ballgame because that's what they do is Alabama that debt it through three quarters they would've taken that game their defense was suffocating. Thank you stat yet. Three quarters so Alabama was leading going into the fourth yeah of course Alabama's that up fourteen nothing in a game. Underneath save an Alabama. Had been 987 no. When leading going into the fourth quarter why. Is that's what they do suffocating defense on the football how pound of all night but most defense is cannot hold up for four quarters in that fourth quarter even if there. If it's a close game. It's it's not suck well Scarborough got hurt in as the first time in 988 games think about that under Nick Saban that they've that it team. Has come back on them in the fourth quarter when trailing. At the end of the third on the had to do with Watson. But the other part of that is that they couldn't run a bunker Scarborough broke his leg and that's all they needed was just a couple first downs. And and that game is that game is different they sell that thing away the other one is. I got this saarc and I don't know link given would've done this either and who knows I. I just aren't good I I'm not going to double digit lead double digit lead. Not just a lead into the third quarter a double digit lead blunt I'm not gonna put anything on the whole offensive coordinator switch who knows who believes that second. But I I thought that Alabama was so afraid. Of their quarterback making mistakes. That they shot themselves in the foot they were paralyzed by fear that's how they played all year that they were sole conservative and Clemson was sold well prepared. And 'cause it was Colleen out. What Alabama was doing Alabama was not creative enough they didn't have did did they they didn't window dress it enough. You know did there wasn't enough shifts there wasn't enough right there wasn't enough creativity. They thought they could go win and bleeped plain Vanilla. And they were all right why shouldn't they think that end and that's why they're not sure that's right particularly because they were almost right in a scar brisket or maybe they are right. But at some point you had to take the shackles off that and when they did the first war did you with a couple nice plays at. Would've been nice to seek for the did the double pass I felt like they are building plant and that was when it was desperation time. I felt like going into the fourth quarter that met momentum had shifted and you could see Alabama start to Wear down. And I thought at some point they would realize that their offense is going to have to do some been. And they should have done it before four minutes now hindsight being 20/20. I'm not gonna sit up here and kill them but I think they're gonna sit in that room. And say we had that in our hands and we we blue and give Clemson all the credit in the world. But we had a chance assault that game away for five different times and we couldn't do it. Yeah no I I agree with that I just think that it's hard to blame them when that's how they win games and that's how they've been. Historically successful over the last driver six years that's how they've done it when and where Annika what they'll say is we have good enough defense in the gonna run game that if that hid. Does not screw it up you were gonna win. And so they do played that they they they in and they in and I. It is I don't necessarily play with and I do agree though with you that. Later in the game we needed realize need to mood changed little bit up and but they did get the game winning driving in the game the go ahead drive but that was. That was desperation you finally saw them gay created he saw them get aggressive I just. I wanna say that the first three or four drives of the fourth quarter. I just sat there and as they keep you keep doing this BS offense well and Hertz was really conservative to yes even within that within its like. He could try to make a play but he would just kind of aegis of the three largest thrown out of bounds I just thought at some point drop them back in just let him run bootleg human can give you run pass options and let him run. But I set there was watching and I said this will come back to haunt them because their defense is not going to hold up to him and I got everyone watching that it did not easy members talked about a dead. You could see some of the fatigue and you looked at the plate count and once I got up in that eighty mark you like this this is not going to work. And they just kept going three and out and spent cost him in any custom yeah just had nothing left in the the take it the N add. Again give Clinton called it a couple catches the Mike Williams made holy hell. How about that and then that tight end whose name escapes me. That play where he caught it did did did that set up the touchdown pastor renfro you find a better catch. Then that then that means cut a twisted around one handed bring about being that's O'Dell Becton junior. Left Jordan like it yeah got down to the four or whatever are 'cause he's like that that goes well and drives clams in August just make in play right times he's that that goes on the list the let's keep it to that to the first point was about correctly would some go back to the to the basis basis of my. Initial thought was. In this this I'd never thought about this until that game played out the way it did us in their thinking you know. Maybe. This is a testament. To Nick Saban is ability that this team. Is all the way here. With sacked quarterback in that quarterback play now you know did anybody ever think about that we never thought about that because we're so used Alabama. Being in the spot no matter what's at quarterback right but you watched when they played did their best team when they play the best defense is. Of the C profits who struck their offense did struggle and it did not look good it didn't look good against Washington. It didn't look good against Clinton did the Gideon's LSU now everybody else doesn't really have. What it takes a Clemson did but Clinton did in Washington did they made their offense looked at and sleep so it makes it it made me think while. That's a weakness that we didn't pay enough respect to. How amazing is it that they're in this spot nobody when he scored 31 points which should be enough to win the game. Where such a liability. At quarterback. When Scarborough went down the only thing they had work in form was done and and that was it when when he got hurt their offense was finished. Until the end when they took the of the shackles off and and really that was set up by you know great defensive play they kept pinning. Clintons and you know down deep and then. You know its ultimate DIA I know they retarded their defense let him down. When you have statistically speaking the best defense and in and argue being kind of culture by history when your year would depend on the metric you're looking at. You can't allow them to go eighty yards I don't care how tired you are your offense is bad is it was. Score do we knew that game and your defense couldn't hold do you and that that all that low hot those guys forever tied up next what about the am. Who's getting it on the next enlist the saarc Kiffin thing. 345. W factor was that on within ourselves off. Advise against duke on insanity though. So to mean the Alabama's. Quarterback situation that totally exposed against better defense they played us. And we saw that last night now other people's. Are blaming. Another Hertz is daddy's. He he's a true threat I think about that he's eighteen years old dip. Told like it is let's one year old Mikey you don't have horrible mechanics sometimes you Simmons easy duel thread quarterbacks Tim Tebow is like this they just. Want to delivery and just mechanically they can't do it the kid looks good throwing the ball he's just easy and accurate written. It is very inaccurate any can't be can't read the field that he seems. Pretty Smart move in he knows when to throw it away you know he's very composed he's he's he's had he's gonna get better he's heady. The can we say that. Because he's not. Saying it was coaches kids to you that the cliche you know he can't call on the Bradley Scott talk about is is a rival that is an F right that's right why I think about that I know kids are way more. Developed in and better prepared than they've ever been like that the true freshman being used to just be you know in all of that this terrifying thing of oh my god you have to have a freshman plane. And now the EC across the board I mean there's there were several freshman true freshman playing in the national title game some homes already. But I I just think back to like when I was a freshman and not that I'm you know playing at Alabama are playing in national title ever but I was a bit of pretty in a well sought after recruit and thought I was was pretty good of football could god. Had you played me is it true freshman. It is that what an abomination that would have bitten by looking at Herbert the kid orient you up. Look at him look so young as he looks like he's twelve and he looks so frightened like during interviews and suddenly you he really shows like hurts doesn't look quite as young now. Herbert looks like a baby like I think about what we played so well I if they they talked about the Clinton right tackle who was horrific last night that. Even he was started on the offensive line. And I I think about that you know twelve months ago that I was playing high school football he's now he's he's block and into a two. First round picks for Alabama in the national title game I'd that's just blows my mind. I was so ill equipped to say is that your president when he unfunny I can imagine and so you you get these guys in in yeah they they certainly have their their liabilities. But he did I think sometimes it's it's. A good thing to remember just how young and inexperienced they are. In just the growth and development you can have from yeah a year a year especially that that first 230 your second year. So other people. Have been pointing to the whole Kiffin saarc thing. And I'll think we need to spend too much time on this because I'm with you that I don't think it was a much of a factor in the outcome of the game. Be cut and and I say that for one reason because saarc is getting some heat today. Because what you pointed out about how conservative their offense less. But if you look at the Washington game ending Lane Kiffin was the offensive coordinator for that game. It was the same as an affect their offense looked worse against Washington than it did against Clemson so how on earth can you say OK that was great. And saarc was terrible and that's the reason why Alabama Los they scored 31 points the only end and he he opened up the offense. For that last drive he pulled he pulled himself out of the SARS if you knew we needed you and Laura did and it worked and they got the go ahead score or two minutes left. The only criticism that I will put on Steve's are key Asian was. It if I ate through the TV. Could feel. The Alabama defense wearing down if you could feel the momentum changing and that's. The that there was it was palpable how can you not on the sidelines. And I just I felt like he waited. 33. Possessions. Too long. In order to open that thing up. I think you had to go into the fourth quarter and say we have to start getting some first downs we have eight we have a ten point lead here. But we can't keep going three and out we can't keep giving Clemson. Extra possessions we can't give them the ball for a seventeenth time. Eventually this dam is gonna burst. And I think had they done that how they just open it up just a little bit a couple Dresser I think we're talking about Alabama going back to back today. When he did open and up on now. They got that 68 yarder. Yeah and I was just David let's is I was blown cover blown coverage to OJ how buddy buddy give him credit because it sounds like the kids found them up. He could easily overthrown well over the army could not throw the ball he's still mile east so so so art. Has to deal with. Clemson's first of all they're they're. Their team but Denny also loses his running back is his bill is out now he loses. Can any as a cornerback who cannot throw the ball tough ten yards down the field what he what you want him to do. Yeah I'd I think you had to give more creative with it I bikinis do window address some things the part that was that was astounding to me was just how predictable. Alabama's offense was and how prepared Clemson won. At some point you have to realize guys they they know what we're doing they're recognizing us by formation in by shift. And they're calling out the plays before we even before we snap on. We can't have this something has to change and I'll get to go to Howard delivered double move there that was brewing because you're on a thousand of those stupid bubble screens which were going anywhere in you finally adjusted Judy you read a nice double move up OJ Howard and you ended up with a wide open touchdown. And then as soon as you did you went right back to running into a group of people were you were getting first downs and you where right back to the ball screen thinking you showed you're capable of doing it. Thank you don't have to put the game you know in your quarterback's hands. But you have to find something to change it up yet to find some way to wind or dress it. Find some way to get a first down or two you've got a couple there for all Americans on the offered the white and you can't run the ball for a first down. Mean how many times can you run into an 89 man front before you IC take a shot downfield we'll try to loosen things up to. It hurts did you throw a ball downfield. A wanna sit like four or five times before and after the OJ Howard one he just overthrew every single receiver now so they did attempted he'd just won an actor that's on sings it what are you want to guided him there is cause stuff that should be working in the quarterback can't make it happen and then there's only so much seeking his cover one Dieter. Dropped in. Not that Dieter the other leader Derek Jeter he dropped did a sure fire first down if they didn't do themselves any favor and then again the two penalties. Off the turnovers. That killed those drives Alabama got to turn over his deep in Clinton territory. One ended up would nothing because of a penalty the other wind up with a field goal instead of the seven. That's uncharacteristic. Of Alabama they had a lot of stupid penalties that killed drives is due penalties that helped Clemson and they worked out. But the get 11 down on third down. I think that's two and a finger to all the go back and look I think it was like one for fifteen suddenly in on. All right and I could hear even in the game with a third down conversion rate rat like that yeah tell you how good. Alabama was Alabama was better than Clemson minus is quarterback play will bring this up next but that's kind of where wanted to go to use that. Alabama has such a standard to live up to because there's so loaded with talent. That it's almost as if you you almost have to say they self destruct when they lose. Right because it's the I mean it interesting how critical glancing critical as yeah of course. Of course that kind of goes without saying on the icons have played a great game and at the same time Alabama is so loaded. And they're so good. That it almost feels like when they lose. It's it's on the ball that's how good they cannot I'm trying to split it equal 'cause Clemson made so many plays especially the second half their receivers were phenomenal. I bubble where. Was as is good is to Shawn Watson was he was the same thing on the other side for their defense like I was everywhere. To give Clinton credit. Alabama was two for fifteen on third down. Two for fifteen that's a Molina had in it still took the final play of the game in order for climbs into to win that thing. Okay it is that we could get me read Samir tax commend next Trent Dilfer fight fifteen on the pit.
