I got packed -- coaches and I you know decide Alexander proffered. He's working hard trying to cut the ideal for a -- get that to you here momentarily -- -- fifteen minutes from now. It is Orr in Washington week organs got brand new uniforms that looked pretty good. It's the throw back to 1984 so are they branding him. Do they have the duck on -- 94 X I thought it was just plain yellow and green with no duck on is that any idea and added. Yeah I think you're probably right. I thought our picture of Kenny -- yesterday from the -- team and I don't think he had a -- on his shoulder -- thing you buy a used car like he does on his sleeve. On his new car and AM on Sunday show media. This is -- you but it's not an exact its use cards exactly what that's Jon -- car right there. That again Stan -- Francisco 31 Saint Louis seventeen less than a Monday Night Football and here's his quote from under its favorite commentator John anchored. The -- the obvious but it worked called us in and that's you know the coach Harbaugh it'll be at it. -- or Frank Gore and Anquan Boldin pars all worked so I didn't go to school work was clear credit you did your overheads he won't hurt told me he. Let's look up this isn't. -- it's almost. To the it's good for pissing off I don't play your packet labeled these stalwart. We'll determine these courageous and athletic values. This week. With that with or -- that the -- they're installing office speaking women who don't were considered innocent Stallworth did. Here but maybe. Not quite as well -- this but. I angered never to Rico laugh on a practice he really got them on -- he had the game he had a case of the giggles they want me to re going to is -- eighty -- eighty series he's an Asian or third added yeah. It's phenomenal and I looked hundred -- wanted to say cinnamon -- -- the station isn't it. He's like -- he's a cinnamon forming synonym it's an and in. Now cinnamon or synonym synonym. O'Meara was -- there just did it what he's doesn't want us probably the lord sentiment now is an analysis and and not from Edward college out pretty early on in the -- it in to -- spikes in insignia. Okay -- who know that Jack dance. Here is he compared quarterback -- and you're ready for this I'm ready on jeopardy through his first 29 starts -- I -- now. Okay. He is 21 an eight like at the quarterback that we're comparing him to was nineteen intent. I think I -- listen pass yards Colin -- critic has 6261. Is that a quarterback has 6100. The -- dampening beaten in record beats and pass yards. Touchdown interception ratio. The college -- has 41 of touchdowns to fifteen interceptions this other quarterback has 43 to fifteen today at the same number of interceptions the other quarterback the were comparing him who has. Two more touchdowns. Rush yards one quarterback has 12100. -- Kapanen has a thousand very very compatible numbers that quarterbacks is Ron Amadon yeah. Yeah I mean like. I don't like to do the comparison game your -- -- hall of fame quarterback. Who had a great career ended up winning a championship for the team and most people pointed his rings he will how many rings is he got. I don't like that conversation all the time with some guys because you have greats who are ring listen you have other guys who. Pretty much lived off the maximum of -- a phenomenal defense and did one great plane is Super Bowl and got one too so that argument kind of goes up -- one -- but the career Ron Amadon. You're talking about one of the greatest of all time to do it. It's funny compare and look at where they weren't certain points of their careers but getting caught up in in labeling one of the best quarterbacks with calling tapper nick now. It's a bit extreme and out outrageous to me and I assume that's something a sports center did or something like that. -- surrogate once -- that shocked me when I -- exciting it was -- no matter how are we found earlier today but the ones that shocked me was that Ron Amadon had like 300 more rushing yards through his first I mean we all its -- on young was known for running the football on kind of one of those guys Bradley struggled with the passing for a long night for contact critic and in the rushing yards that he put up an and happen at the last two years that he leads the NFL quarterbacks in rushing yards this year again so that. That was surprising to me up with the on this on -- out you know. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- He's played well the post season besides for the two interceptions against Seattle in the NFC championship game. And it was also funny because I thought you had cap predict kind of summed up in a nutshell with back to back plays in the fourth quarter. Where it was a great play design great play call by Roman and Harbaugh the play action with -- booted him out he picked up to fifteen yards. -- the five yard my very next -- dragged down and he just went up in the newly out of the field is just like back to back plays like that city take the good with the bad but. When he's on it he put that touchdown pass to Brandon Lloyd right on the money in the first half. When he's on he's as good -- again. And sometimes they being a fan is the worst in terms of having an opinion in noticing stuff and last night you're watching -- -- -- who played probably one of if not his best game of his career he was on fire threw for 343. Get a phenomenal game no turnovers. I thought it was a really interesting that a week ago Russell Wilson was having a phenomenal game. And everybody nationally was tweet about how Grady is how Levy is how much of an MVP candidate he has. Nobody was talking about Colin Catholic when he has -- be very I think the not the six but I think the perception of trying to put one guy as the the leader of the NFL. Is totally in their Fries -- a national writer I think as a here marketing I think it's 100% marketing driven that Colin capita is viewed. And has been painted and it is some of his fallen we've had this conversation many times. I think he's in -- is the evil villain. For lack of a better word as saga and I think Russell Wilson's been painted as did the choir boy a who has the NFL prototype for the Virginia from national writers you -- -- appointed as one for an example when it is social media so take -- what it's worth. Peter King is a great example of the -- guy talks -- Russell Wilson all the time like their best friends. You don't really hear many things about Colin -- predict when he has a good game one of the story for you Dallas quarterbacks running back to Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle was arrested for shop listing. I can't talk from a shoplifting. From a suburban mall on Monday night he was charged with a misdemeanor. And -- class of -- fast I think he stole Cologne. So he kidding -- apparently he stole. Underwear in Cologne. He has a base salary of 495000. This year has -- really expensive -- the column went to a suburban -- and apparently Manny can afford you got a -- and I mean there was the actress again -- Christiane when a writer and on -- right to -- candies but what do you -- when people you make a lot of money I think -- is it sickness isn't it and again I don't think he makes -- sister breaking -- which is he stealing what's his name. Which is the guy who stole stuff. The running back Randall. -- -- whole name I don't notice for Brian about what his paycheck is just that's the whole number Thanksgiving is paycheck 495000. Sadly that's good money. -- mean that's all right not -- today for a -- No I'm just saying a lot that goes in there though like you gotta pay for a nice place to live in Dallas you're not permanently living in Dallas your pain -- other placing your hometown. You got a car he got asked Hamas BI multiples are -- take care of -- you gotta keep up an embassy got I'll get the steak house like what does -- 400 dollars and I know bottle I know who spends a hundred dollars -- long. Who Barbary Cologne it's fantastic he's -- hundred on -- Cologne I have and it was Cologne made out of anybody announced don't clutter and elephant tusks I think. Now we're back I don't know what that segment was. Here is it's not -- was force there where it'd be better we promises the pactel coach Scotty earlier from Mike Riley. Index now winning in next preview the beavers in their. The utes game coming up on Thursday listen it and -- -- served up by Buffalo Wild Wings -- anything. -- -- Did you quit and ABC right now. -- right every Tuesday is the pac twelve coaches call and it's coming up quick I actually believe it or not I I'd like Thursday games when we got him here in organ. Unselfishly for. Our own reasons for our you know life on the weekends -- like organ state organ player on -- then maybe people they have the regular (%expletive) don't but. I enjoyed eating -- week forty in Oregon State game that you're gonna be either I am going to let did it in fourth. Not only is -- this is this is true indication right here at Stanford will be in Corvallis Thursday night he will be in Eugene Saturday he's grinding man he's on his grind boom. We're elevating the show we're taking its new -- that's back to back Thursday night games and in the big game Saturday leaving your -- national honest man this is also enacted a distributor fans because he went to the -- Arizona game that went in and also a lot Oregon upset Utah as he went to last upset with Evian that's not an upset organization resort it's not brain tied -- on shaky times and it's competition -- user -- funny you say that here's -- -- talking about being an underdog at home. Apple I don't I don't know that we ever pay much attention to that you know itself. It's kind of outside of our world -- get ready for game and our job is to build up confidence in preparation and that's what we're trying to do. I believe my -- there I don't think it matters one way or another whether or not they're the underdogs at home I mean I know you tied. Is -- but. Morgan State should at least beginning some receiving votes -- to spread on this team is pretty close its two and a half in favor of top. Yeah I mean look this I don't really look at the spreads for these games because of how close they are it's a great opportunity for organ state. Unfortunately the F some bad news I think sale model has no timetable returning Kyle pack on the DT transfer. They -- can't pass an online class so god knows if he'll ever be don't be able to play this year to good opportunity. Use it as a little bit of fuel for fire adding alive putting a lot on the -- whatever you wanna say. However cliche can use Morgan State will use that but I think it's going to be good barometer for organ state because of believing you can slow that run game down for you -- off. You can contend with a lot of teams in this conference here is the status of. -- Kyle pack up my -- not for a 100% yet but I think it's doubtful that has to do with academics. Yeah and I bet that's inactive when you talk about the same all injury and you add in this whole situation the fact of the transfer that's not the kind of news you wanna hear at this point in the season we've been waiting I've never pre season wasn't saint -- was like all right he's gonna miss the first week second week. And it just keeps track and on and on which which is not good. But when you look at this match at the other reason -- top ranked -- -- it is it is easy -- went over a top ten team now that top ten team was a fraud. They've been exposed in the last two weeks but at the time UCLA was ranked number eight in the country. And it's the same thing when you get when those winds are gonna jump up there the court and -- it was this game it will be ranked in the top 25 absolutely -- -- -- contention intractable north I think that the intriguing part here is the quarterback position for Utah this house that goes with Kendall Thompson and Travis was funny you say that his. Mike Riley commented we are on fire today year ago well obviously we have to prepare for -- that they're not gonna name. Starter and they they certainly have two very good players to pick from -- we played its Travis last year. And he gave us all sorts assists and then the new guy is going to be there Bennett nice job so. Probably a good problem for you talk to deal with -- thank you Mike Riley hit him with a new guy. -- the new guy came mania at some level of success and you guys know okay Colin back there are under sadder that that general Thompson really does concern me any -- concern -- fans you know he's he's not the most explosive the passer he had a decent game throw the -- -- a thirteen. 95 yards and a touchdown against UCLA. But look at his running even throw up on don't know -- dry your way to start the game Bailey threw for 200 yards as the CEO I know it's -- that Kendall Thompson nineteen carries 83 yards at the quarterback position. I hate to invoke -- name here but he is a mobile quarterback and we feel our -- is that crop of mobile quarterback don't forget. Vern Adams comes to mind spread offenses do not do well organs or it's easy that is not do well against spread offenses and that's what concerns me with a guy like -- top. Tammy like you that five years now where you've seen the read option with the multiple teams this is a good legacy that this is a great opportunity for mark -- to kind of show what he can do with his defense. Of a lot of BM veteran leadership with the guys at safety linebacker positions to get opportunity I don't know about their quarterback situation. If it ends up being Wilson OK but if you go with the other guy. He -- he reminds me of a new Solomon somebody who works perfectly into their system. He's gonna throw a little bubble screens and they're going to be the read option pretty much the entire time this is really a great opportunity for that -- state defense. To pick up and learn how to stop the read option. That was one of the better teams that's not last year when utes -- aura or using correctly. Great game act -- -- -- you he might -- is right that Wilson gave them all sorts of problems. Last year you tied very very tough place to play but that was gonna shot minions better gains. Where he led the team backing here's my friend again what they work done in the bye week. That's going to be a big big factor for us this -- season develops and very important we get some production out there. You don't so we can stretch the field a little bit you know I think that. Other parts of our game. If they can remain consistent. You know with a tight ends in the running game. You utilizes that running backs -- that's pretty good that we got to get that other part going to really be effective. -- about getting the passing game going and that -- it's got to make. That's making your fans a little nervous at that comment he's been pretty good they were pretty good in Colorado with the with the balance of the as a must balance -- of the year. I just feel like there's something in Mike Riley that loves throwing the football we'll I I think he believes in John Maine and John Maine's ability to spread it out. Picture to tidy and you have Richard Delaney hunters Harmon's probably one of the most surprising players for -- wearing granny who is numbers -- a lot of moments. Where he's looked like for -- -- with some of the catches he's made. I don't know if you can necessarily rely on the past with Utah you can establish a run that throws their defense off a little bit. They're not premier enough to completely shut it down. But he is another good opportunity offensively. To establish balance and try to get wrong ward or storm woods to go throw over a hundred yards. And still go through year with your leader. Yeah I mean it is just weird to me that we recently -- in the conversation piece that we need to get shot meaning going like that's the conversation coming out of -- rally in an Odyssey I think it's a good problem happened terms that. We talked all off season about how they have to get the running game going and I agree with -- dampening. When you look at that Colorado game that to me was the most talented they've been this year in the rushing attack was it was unbelievable really carry the offense throughout the course that football game. So that to me it's a good sign today if you were at this point in the year and you were relying on shopping and throw the football 5060 times a game to get you afford one. That would be a little concerned that when you have a guy have that ability would -- -- been kind of -- from to have that break out game. We -- have a bunch of those last you go for 35400. Yards for five touchdowns he still has that ability in him. But it's good that's the problem the problem but the running into problems passing game so far this year is our pac twelve coaches call ideally -- every day at every week rather on Tuesday here is Kyle winning him head coach of -- -- on Oregon State's offense. Coach -- -- run that offense for a lot of years -- -- -- pro style attack very very good scheme but tough to defend. You quarterback Sean -- this is an actual player not. Quite put up numbers it did last year but -- intended as a receiver like Brandon cooks but that's going to be factor for. We hear that basically from a lot of coaches in the pac twelve that they give to Oregon State. And it's is it different I think that they have to prepare for. And it's just a different regal as that does cause some teams problems how what do you make OT dot echo what makes you does. Number one thing torture has to be of of force in the presence off the edge. And he's been just there can -- it can -- that was. That was so that was. Hope for him and somewhat expected I guess you could say the development of the younger guys has really -- the thing that's made the difference. The their defense has been pretty good this year for the most part but or in Steve Begin as we hear from so -- -- of coaches a different animal to different beast when it comes to prepare you for the Utah had. Has had some extra time though. To get ready for their -- -- are we heard at pac twelve media day 2 years ago -- am I airs on a linebacker was time on how -- state was the toughest team to prepare for in this conference because of the traditional offense that they go with. Opposed to spread everybody out like everybody else. Utah applied really good pressure on Brett Hundley and really took that away from them late in that ball game. I I believe they have the opportunity to do that again with -- meaning he's less mobile. And that is a makeshift offensive line if I'm Mike Reilly I'm thinking in Mike Cavanaugh. I'm dialing up in thinking of totally different protection schemes because the last thing you want as your past game -- taking completely away from. It passes the is not and I think the other thing too offensively -- stated we talked about and getting the run game going and how effective that has been you've got to find ways to dial up some big play action in takes some shots downfield and -- trying to keep the defense at bay because. The last thing you want is for them to come up and have some success against you ready to be -- it was able to run the football lob Perkins had 99 yards averaged almost six yards to carry. Jordan James and four point five yards security -- was able to run the football against that. And I still view that is what Morgan State -- can be this Thursday night is if they cannot run the football successfully. He got I think it's gonna open things up from canyon Utah coach Kyle William and who's gonna play quarterback. Very simply because it gives us the best chance to win in our estimation that that's what it boils down to it. And you know we have two good ones we really likable. So he's -- -- anything except as AM do you miss being shipped to go ahead and prepare for them balls. Or against it did you hear that quote he had -- day or two ago when he was demo won't name the starter when the kid walks out on the field this year the exit and you act like if not letting him there's not a doubt in my mind -- Kendall Thompson I I. I try to IDC Travis Wilson is a guy's been there while we all know about that could cut. And issues that he had and it's good to see him back enabled this plea for baucus he was one of those guys you know you ask that question career wise his career over. Because he hits it he had taken but watching at UCLA Utah game. Get a top city he reminds me kind of a throw that quarterback where he is is more running back and quarterback I think when you see those spread guys have success against Oregon State. He would be my pick to start there backed away it's. Some organic in Washington we'll hear from mark -- -- in Chris Peterson on the upcoming game and the upcoming rivalry. Between the ducks in the Huskies here's Joey was sports and. Well -- votes he inserted. She talent in the lineup for the giants and he did his name Raymond -- talent. Meanwhile people ended giants now lead the cardinals in game 34 to nothing -- hit a Grand Slam. No he did yeah. -- bases clearing the golf fly through this spring -- -- -- Great uncles and sandy -- that was a cool story is a guy it was cut after a couple weeks of Pittsburgh this year. He thought about retiring San Cisco call them in -- smiling eland and hearing is something he's -- -- Ichiro. -- nothing is the score between the giants -- the cardinals right now I apologize for lack of attention the rest of the show you feel pretty -- -- -- game their ads and on that night it is facing the lord it is cool to see tonight's start its first game and he has he has pretty crazy stat. It's good is that guy's career. Active leader in wins he's never started well -- pieces -- series stuck in Atlanta and Oakland to only known for choking in the play house. Right we continue out of our pac twelve coaches call let's hear from organ head coach mark Alpert. In -- head coach Chris Peterson we'll start off the mark Alpert and the rivalry between Washington and org. You know that they history that very very well what that means to our fans. We are very cognizant of we have a what you guys have been here for a long time and I've been on. Every side of the rivalry that. This week we play Washington you know they have -- -- defense clean and special teams and our fans I think first and foremost will be glad that we are. -- And Adam. Why did that last part but -- coaches are playing out last year but -- I do like about mark Dell rates I like -- is that he acknowledges the rivalry. That's all you can ask -- you know I think there is certain to be said you know we used to talk about Chip Kelly all the time and I have we talked about this about two years ago when neighbors don't -- that watch -- game -- -- -- -- would you just acknowledge that it's a rivalry. Yeah this evening about your players but to say hey is it fun for the fans for these two teams. But the one thing that chip it was that he paid with that same focus every week nameless faceless opponent when that day and all the cliches you want to use. And it worked to mark up for just come up this security talked about how big -- Michigan State game lies that we understand to -- ten teams of big time game. And many had a letdown after that so -- I appreciate from a coaching standpoint. It just from a somebody who likes the rivalry I love that they acknowledged the fact that they hate each other. But at the same time it makes you wonder is he on to some it was chipped on to something by not even acknowledging. But that that that's I think that's the cool part about health for -- being the head coach as he grew up here he understands what that means. You know you look at it from an organ perspective and the obvious statement is boring can afford to lose any more ball games I almost -- knowledge from Washington's perspective. They just shut down a very powerful cal offense which that almost sounds funny to say nowadays. They're coming off a little bit of -- high and now they're going into this game where. Everybody is writing them off they've they've had one game. During this stretch of losing that war again where they've lost by less than twenty point one game organ is blown them out every single year. At some point that starts to get your head in really patient awful but that's of course got us Jake Fisher back in here's mark help bridge on the impact that had against UCLA. It was good he wasn't you know him when you know trophy last week but he you know he was he was good definitely see that he had he had done. You know cut them some rust as far as as we get back into full speed mode against a very good team. That's -- that's funny to me about this -- Jake Fisher studies like. You have a coach -- says Nike didn't play all that great we were good and other areas he got to give people credit he will be big this week. Going up against that Washington deepens in that front seven here's -- on preparing for that the. You don't have to when he checked Thompson's roam around on scout team and so that's what do we have any different guys you know they're they're their front seven -- -- -- throwing. They're they're secondary talent that they're secretly felt you know very. YC defense struggled early but we'll talk about this all week in you've heard it there. Hard to prepare for guys it's our prepare for markets Mario and if you go watch -- defense. But it's also really hard to prepare for -- mark -- at a guy like Jack Thompson it absolutely is and we talked and we even have rob rang on the show before a Rembrandt season started and he said you look at this Washington defense there's a handful of guys have first round NFL draft potential. And their finally starting to click -- and you look at the way their season has gone offensively they can't do a whole lot. Chris Peterson is struggling with new quarterbacks out of miles he doesn't look like the guy we sound Corvallis last year. But defensively they have for the held down almost every single team that they played it -- you mentioned. It sounds funny to say -- an offensive juggernaut and cal but cal -- did the NCAA I believe -- point for gaining yards and all sorts of different stats and they held him down to this is a good defense a unit yet. Their problems not going to be on the defense this side of the body their problems going to be offensively how long can you keep organs defense on the field and keep markets Mario and off it. We've seen in time and time again when teams beat organic. They do a good job of keeping an offense off the field obviously deceived they can move the ball they have struggled. They had a good follow up week last week against tablet can neighboring that in oxen. Tough to tell one -- more from mark -- on what he sees Jack Thompson. Well -- -- he's been. He's been phenomenal it's not usual that you need to worry about the defense of player being in the end -- so much but. That's something that we definitely need to eliminate is -- shown up in the end zone and and it's been incredible. He has scored jacked -- -- return in 99 yard fumble return against cal. These all over the place he will make a big impact markets Mario does stats note has not thrown an interception to his touchdown interception ratio is. Unbelievable. The charts so had a couple turnovers in the fumble but hasn't really made a costly throw yet. Open that is our productive this week the -- Mario has been very efficient in the offensive game. He has an and I think when you continue to look at Mario and his numbers in the stats he's put up this year he still leagues he's still right in the heart of the Heisman conversation that's how good he's been -- -- to not throw an interception I think he's only thrown ten picks in his career it's three years of starting quarterback. He's only -- ten interceptions and he handles the ball. Very well and then when you talk about Shaq Thompson -- us -- remember you mentioned -- 99 yard touchdown return -- out he scored their only touchdown against the party was it it was a questionable call in terms of what's forward progress stopped. But he stripped the football he picked it up he ran it back protection needs to do everything's done yet. -- him miles Jack are easily the best two way players at least the only two -- players and I can think of in this conference. Interesting approach and how they they're going to defend markets Mario at a deep deep in the pocket and they are beat us from inside the -- we know if you let them go mobile. He's either gonna get a big chunky yards run with -- -- where he's going to be just through the year he's very dynamic that way I wonder Washington's gonna try to bottle him up a little. But yet -- we just -- you know I think we ended that -- this week is how that Washington is defensively how they can give -- some problems on Saturday we -- -- somebody texting and you know I don't keep that. Much you know up to date with all this stuff but. Somebody sent a note -- right now has three Washington defenders in the top 25 on his big boards there's a lot of talent on the unit -- -- from Washington head coach Chris Peterson on the rivalry with the ducks. I don't Porter is a -- off from you know the west did not pay attention to all the all the rivalries so you know I get but as coaches is not like we're gonna prepare harder. I mean we we try to do our best every single week and dagger guys ready to play and you don't see if we can meet the standards it or it's all about. That's a perfect response from Chris Petersen yes it's a big rivalry but as coaches we've got to get him ready like it's every and we think it's. That's a perfect responses -- when he here out of your coach Pete Peterson Gaza type LaMarcus Mario. But I know how strongly they feel about it you know so you look at a guy from afar it's been talked to the coaches and sometimes it's. You know from the -- different from up close and personal and they you know they were always jumping up and down about. How good he was kind of person was almost got this thing so I knew he was -- real -- for a long long -- Chris Peterson at. -- has and hasn't really had it up close and personal encounter with Mario to -- -- watching as -- did last year. We are at tech game any heated that was the one in only six out to me. Probably as we -- there on the sidelines where he is absolutely took over. And -- -- after that game this is kind of when Mario was well well known but not really NFL status I remember after the game saarc. When he was coach -- said he is a top five bonafide NFL talent. And he just flat out BS today. So we're we're talking about organ got to go up against Washington's defense. Washington also has to deal with Marcus Mario you know in a cool part about this game as well with mark -- for -- is the same thing with Chris Peterson a guy who coached at organ he understands what this rivalry means a lot of the world with connecting Chris Peterson to be there. The successor to Chip -- think he's the next man up. He never did take that gig because obviously -- mark -- for its gonna be inching to see what his approach is here again idea I wanna ask you guys. Getting duck fans getting nervous about this -- not at all I don't. I wouldn't say nervous but I think they have what suspect 21 points when he like that part of that is a nervous that is her way too big of a spread of my -- I don't think Washington's play anybody's -- They want it's Stanford I mean let's play anybody give me one no no -- and that's your neighbor right there and I think that's where the frustration came and we talked about Peterson's decision to go for with a fake punt right about may feel that led listed Stanford eventually scoring and winning the game. You know that there's not a nervousness in terms I don't think Washington can come in there and win. But I look at this gated in and a similar like to Washington State -- Arizona where there's probably some that fans of -- lots of Huskies not need to be close look at the spread. But defensively what Washington can do defensively can slow or in down and that will be my only concern. He had in my only concern for the -- it is inconsistency adding that's where did it lets -- yet you don't know but. I think easy to make you can make the same case about Washington you can make the same case. What what watching team team is gonna show up as the defense that allowed -- Adams to run all over them is of the defense last year that let markets Mario around all over them like. What defense for Washington is going to show up in spots in. You obviously have a long history there's not a big -- fans are necessarily that nervous I think there's a an arrogance there and kayaking is there. Look -- Washington even -- says speaking out in one of these games there's no need to be concerned remember last year we -- day. And just hype hype hype and then it just desserts -- every year is the same thing it's like me. I think it'll be different at some point in the next couple years I did -- Chris Peterson will be get -- Washington eventually. But this is an upset a move not is not as confident see if you wanna -- I would be a little nervous if I was rooting for organ this week and I would look at the offensive line and say they looked better against UCLA and obviously Jake Fisher is back. But don't just think that talent on that defensive line has the ability say all right you guys are you returned which -- not that great yet. You're still missing three other guys from the starting unit. I do believe they have the talent to slow that run game down in that happens but the -- game last week. The leading receiver was Byron Marshall and -- -- Brown's good -- Allen had two catches so if you take away the run organ is completely different animal. You really aren't I think you also got to remember you had everything -- last game for -- -- effective when they announced game day was going like you slightly excited about them against courses that are put to death can't on the legs over the -- talk about yeah I think the exact it was wired husky fans excited. They're going to show how bad you've been the last decade battle I will say is that last year's game and it out. I don't know yet to say if -- eighteenth last year it was more talented team than the team this year. But we were not thinking we were on the sideline and we watch Marcus Mario and had a single handedly win Anke they're that the talent gap is slowly but surely closing in Washington has the talent to make it gave. As you look even into the fourth quarter last year that was a neck -- that ball again anywhere ranked near the discussion on the fourth quarter -- defense stepped up and Margaret took over -- -- -- coaches call we do it every Tuesday here on Danforth dirt in -- were back after this don't go anywhere on -- an 80%. Got some baseball news story that dates on the -- it is good giant's latest Louis cardinals Ford and nothing they're going into the third inning. -- outlook for the giants. Had a nice little bases clearing it. That's score is -- and nothing. They gave tonight easy Kansas City Royals host in the Baltimore Orioles that was of course postponed yesterday. And they -- are gonna replay that and they got applicable. Back to back yet another -- I will say I should say this for letting go just very briefly I love baseball the fact that they played eight games in league championship series is this is really -- and I don't understand what they're doing here you can stagger these games in the evening or put them on on different channels. Because the ALCS is on TBS in the NLCS is on fox make him compete for -- whatever you wanna do but. To have these games on the afternoon when people -- work as an absolute joke I don't understand it. It as far as -- -- goes when when you look at the royals and you look at the Orioles series. -- Dyson came out had some interesting comments in the locker room and and he said guys are they raskin and yesterday. And he said this series is not going back to Baltimore which I that was interesting to do I mean Buck Showalter is a guy that's been around. He made his first trip out of the division series to so he's finally having some post season success but. To come out have a comment like that -- for a team that's only 11 post season series in the last thirty years. And act like this -- overeat you're royals player you also got to look at those first two games. It's hey we easily could be down to we had to come back we we let all -- -- and when it an extra innings in game one. Game two they won at the top of the ninth so. I can appreciate it confidence but assays like that it might be denial of yours too little too early in. Process. Everything right and -- organized so far it wasn't he -- now I claim my nine and I -- me when I fart I lift my leg you know it's me. I Sprague on baseball and -- he have a rooting interest -- -- these series yeah every team except the royals like I. I root for the giants -- -- for dirt in his sanity because he's kind of crazy Johnson F bombs -- the -- -- Grand Slam. At the cards -- make it sold BMI huge thing in the cards but OK I understand their consistent they're great organization. I'm I'm rooting for the Orioles to beat the royals out right I hate to Kansas City Royals they are -- -- jackass. Crap talking guys who have never been to a dance and suddenly when they're invited. There the annoying person yet Hosmer everytime they get a blind. This this deep bag comes out of the dugout with his hair -- pumps his -- like he's tiger freak in woods sorry -- never thirtieth they got in the post season I am rooting hard against Kansas City. Because they're all went to jackass is that's really what my rooting interest right now baseball I got more and more. Yesterday a Little League Baseball and again I thought more more after the show yesterday about the analogy I think that's true with a lot of things like I think that GM is the most. Applicable look like you've taken innocent activity they think of an innocent activity that you can view but the new -- somebody that's annoying to -- it -- and biking. -- biking should be fun form of exercise your right it's Thursday should be a fun format. You rode your bike as a kid like that should be fine recreational activity. At administers to the mix and it completely gives biking a bad name. Is the same thing with the Kansas City Royals and what they go through and small small -- should be a great tool. He used to win ball games applied correctly with the giants of the cardinals. It's great what -- correctly he -- and guess couples to point it makes you yeah hipster. And I need treatment costs aren't. Apparently he got a benefit a news liberally but -- if you add that he added he answers to the makes and you get to Kansas and you exit its -- it is frustrating any from a base. Ball perspective because I do enjoy it watch in the cardinals the giants and into the static -- pleasing to watch games in Saint Louis and see him at Cisco. Both fan bases are passionate Baltimore they had a great turnout lesbians were pumped to be there. Kansas City fans are great I'm sure they're gonna enjoy way you know the ALCS comedy -- city for the first time in a long time. But it's the players the players ruin a -- -- all the time in sports with. I head coach that's a a player Richard Sherman Jim Harbaugh you go to the NBA Carmelo Anthony everybody has the person that they hate and they can't root for that team because of home. They Kansas City Royals bench their entire team I can't root for them out is because of the players it just the way they look the way they -- Ever see somebody in you just wanna punch him because of the you know all while a lot of people like after me that is what the Kansas City Royals have right now that I didn't see the first couple games and now as a series of developed. And they've gone through and they have their attitude where they're right. We respect the Orioles a lot and then they come out of the dugout yeah -- pretty much split in the other team off -- scored one run there's something to that. Yeah I mean there is something -- for me this goes back and and I feel like I'm pretty consistent on this -- sports -- -- -- act like you've been there before I know it's exciting and I don't want -- -- -- life and their fans and kind of the enjoyment and how -- winning ball games since it is throwing all their games have been -- all the games and I may be besides for game three against Anaheim which they -- on an -- in the bottom of the first against C. J. -- other -- now -- games have been thrilling in the and they come down the ninth inning or extra innings. They've been great ballgame I just I. I would say to their locker right now it's just just be careful be careful what you're doing here because like as a giants and I know this better and anybody when they did it against Cincinnati coming back from down 02. And they did against Saint Louis where they were down 31 in the NLCS two years ago they came back and wants a -- All those sorts a couple of things can bounce the other way a couple balls don't drop a couple of loops don't fall. And all the sudden you have a completely different series and come out in and make a bold statement it's not going back to Baltimore I don't quite understand. You see what the royals act they've been there while they haven't so they're guys that it's true they have now that is their one of those thirty get you updated on the NBA is going to evaluate if a shorter team will be a better team the Brooklyn nets in Boston Celtics. Or play a 44 minute pre season game this Sunday. As the league looks to test a format that's gonna feature fewer minutes. And fewer mandatory timeout deceived they can get the pace of play up which is surprising to -- is adding the NBA's got the best and most efficient. A video of this professional sports when it comes to -- MBA -- quake it's done and over is all I I'm I'm all for experimenting with that. But I think what they're trying to do is get some of the starters and have the impact of the long season. Down a little bit a way to do that is short update which they. Since he -- -- senate LeBron James all the minutes he's played I think it's like two or three more full seasons in terms that the only thing I'll say about pace of play any MBA is the end of games I don't like the pace at the end of the with -- time outs in the free throws. The other than that I know. I'm OK with this but. Form and it's is that really gonna make the difference here for -- -- another record Kirk if that's the big difference if we wanna rest guys and get MLB let's take off one minute. That's sixty seconds it's gonna make all -- -- -- -- David dollar because once one dollar and one dollar now when you're a millionaire doesn't matter doesn't it when you see one dollar over of course it's not my friend a million per year for the blazers with a good investment forum wasn't -- didn't exactly right hand you get one minute glee do the math on this. It's four minutes a game yet. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And economic analytical -- -- but one minute lesson Meyers Leonard every game and a girl can I signed that petition right away. Jay is always in we'll give me an update on what's taking place with his case what would you do with deem this Winston. In that we'll have -- text from one of our listeners I think you'll enjoy it while that for you know action is -- and portraits break served up by about the Lotta things on -- to.
