So like 78668890. Point seven mile about over 177. It's where you can send a text. Before taking all your calls and comments here. Last -- we spoke about the breaking news in the US attorney's office now gonna switch. Switch over to sports is a -- Joe's sports weekend. Alabama is common to death Balata take on the tiger is this tomorrow night. It's it's just a massively huge games there's there's I don't know when I in my skull -- was entirely a -- promised joining me here. I mean Mike I have heard stories about there have been more. Our request for president her credentials to cover this ominous is like. I mean this is -- -- Super Bowl it's it's just just shy of an actual -- championship game minute. Yeah I mean in the pre season and we've submitted our credentials there would not so there was a note that. Looked this is -- credentials. Every game except for Alabama -- -- they -- -- know that. They were gonna really scrutinize who was credentialed for this one because of limited. -- from the press box limited spots on sidelines trying to keep the congestion down there as far as photographers and so forth. So. You know look this is a national. CBS picked it. You know -- a long time ago to be there one televised night game that they're allowed. And you know -- game -- is there an -- it is what it is and you know LSU has the one lost and it doesn't seem to have affected the luster of this one. No there hasn't and I remember I remember after the game last year and I said it was going to be O televised. At night in the in Death -- that that in Bermuda rough man these are two powerhouse teams and expect them to be like that last year. But -- Alabama. Frankly has not lost. Since the tigers beat them in regular season overtime play last season. And LSU. Got hammered in the in the championship game by Alabama and one of their loss to Florida this year so. I don't know I mean it's it's going to be a game the oddsmakers have it from between eight and nine and a half points favoring Alabama even though she was a home. But I'd be what does what does that say they they think Alabama's gonna do opened their insurer by how much. -- You know that the oddsmakers give LSU anywhere from five to six points for being a home favorite. But when you look these look at what Alabama's done taking care of business and that's. No. I'm doing a Q and they would -- Alabama site on rivals dot com right now and you know who asked him if we would do I think at this Alabama team is better than last year's Alabama team yeah. Yeah and and it could be made that the problem with Britain would come and their conclusion definitively. Is that you look at -- Alabama has played in they haven't played anybody yet yeah. But what is impressive about what they've done in the game they have played. They haven't played down of the competition like there was you tend to do when they play lesser opponents. The they take care of business I -- there -- 244. Point favorite. Leading into the Mississippi State game last week. And I thought that run time well you know the second quarter they've -- -- gone beyond the 24 points. You know look -- -- with the with the bulldogs. And and so that that's that's where they -- impressive just how disciplined they are the lack of penalties. Just a well oiled machine and -- we you know on the converse side UCL issue in their last game at the College Station over a hundred yards in penalties. You know instill confidence did struggle. And so you know it's easy to see why you know the oddsmakers. You know. Sunday when it came out that the line was even over ten point two and at the first arrived. Some would say I guess more compassionate type -- vote would go. Well -- than that playing down to the competition they're trying not to embarrass Hamas problem but it's not. It's not an embarrassment or install and if you're playing which are capable of doing it well some people -- bad that's a subjective vote. Opinion right there's this would be whatever you think you know some -- win just win the game are when it just enough but you're right though I mean -- They're precise I mean it footballers is an art form an ounce and a lot of ways but it has signed stood -- -- that put the science and they and. And that also to bring in you know you've got hasn't disgruntled LSU fans throughout the season. I'm obviously we're -- came in pre season number one and then and the tower map -- mid August getting booed off the team. The injuries in the -- and struggling. The job -- -- receivers. And then course because knowing that it's going to be -- a two -- LSU Alabama right. -- almost -- -- you fans who watched Alabama play every weekend and keeper -- what they're doing and so when you see that the way that they play disciplined football in and Nick Saban. On the sideline when he's up forty. In the fourth quarter percent of back -- for not executing right. In and they compare and contrast it to the way less miles candles. You know keystone cop type of play at times. You know we just kind of bailed not really get after anybody. That you know that I think that kind of sticks with tiger fans. Yeah well. Last season I mean I got a subway -- can -- to -- -- on the argument you get out on her and I got a subway but I'm thinking about. Look I was kind of -- and of people lassie isn't on me at that they're undefeated you know have people come up less miles than deserve to be there this that all -- -- something don't they want every game. I mean you know people really walking on the field there boom and and had -- well we're blowing the coast and -- the players and go out when the players walk on a feeling they have boost its booms and the team is undefeated I don't know what else you won't. -- write you but you made a comment that that's an accurate that's right on the mark you know I mean less. It's Nick Saban is out there coaches and pushing his boys men these are men he's out there push and his men. To do their best. And no. Coax an open and a coast and an all our guys that play for second Mike Scarborough and what was it tiger made dot com where you can just get. Frankly everything you need to know about LSU they're on top of all the things finally start commenting catch -- stuff there. We have a lot of good stuff into a WW dot com and I'm ready opinion poll. Is who do you think will win the battle in -- rose -- LSU right now 56% of young Sam bam. Get online cast your vote think get a cup of coffee. We're back those bush sort of -- seven WWL my guess this Mike's golf bro he's publisher of tiger made dot com. We're talking about the big. The big match up inside Death Valley tomorrow between LSU tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide -- tied. Is favored to win by the oddsmakers. Between eight and nine and a half points -- and normally give what does this guy has named John of the Rain Man rainy. He says. You -- give LSU five and hit five point eight points because there are around. They are in in their home -- turf but he said this is an Alabama has covered their last four road games by 68 points. And they just don't seem to have trouble playing on the road LSU I mean they're good -- let you brought up a great point Mike I mean they haven't really. Played. The other teams of LSU's caliber I mean -- not to say that they have been cake walks but you know -- They haven't they haven't had to play down to their competition but they certainly haven't had to play up to any two there's nobody they haven't come across a new one on their level yet. Look at you know what let's look at who they played on the road. And Arkansas all they've been -- conducting a coaching search since September and Missouri. Newt Newt -- team to the league. And -- senate seat which. You know -- then did Derek Dooley. Question each week you know it is his job safe and so I don't. In that argument I'm not gonna -- -- but that's sad but there's no denying would just how they demolished people. But you know and that's where the rub is with many LSU fans. And has been for years in the way that the Southeastern Conference. Schedules -- that does -- have a common opponents and was she plays Florida every year. Why Alabama insist on -- and playing Tennessee every year well Tennessee is never going to be as good as Florida a year and in year out. And Ben and I and I'll say -- I just don't think of that program ever be as good. Is they were in the ninety's under -- former. I don't think they'll ever regain its going to be the premier program. It it it may -- to have a good team here and there but not on a consistent basis -- portable very rarely. I have a stretch where they're playing mediocre football. For an extended period of time they just spend too much money and they won't tolerated so. That was you have supported the common opponent in England lost. And I -- bill. And then South Carolina rotates and which when that we know she beat them they were top ten football team so you know. Alabama didn't doesn't -- South Carolina Florida or Georgia on this 2012 schedule so if that they play LSU. You know they're next. Chance of maybe appoints somebody can make things machine with a man is kept saying -- -- next week and you know a team that was you beat College Station. Well yeah it's neat that I just basically are saying is that it's very easy for you to be a powerhouse of Europe a big old pickup truck driver around Smart cards. -- they and they they they are good and -- and like said save it's no slouch he does not. He doesn't let his -- slack up and down look like he's trying to be mean he's just trying to make is there's more play football. His mentally fit in in and and what it but it's not their fault that Arkansas is gone from being. You know ranked in the top five with a live in the last season -- almost doubled the tree you know to being absolutely horrible. Pump you know that was going to be a good talk can match up. You know -- looked a year ago. And then you know we know we would have been all -- they've gone from national champion few years ago took you know which isn't going to be on the out. And and they don't have any of the power teams in the east on their schedule so. -- -- -- they you know they they get pastel issue and and in in their pretty home free less. Taser and then with that. -- Johnny put all of he's able to pull something off. And here's a -- got several text questions and you are also taking your calls its music so one point seven LSU wins despite miles who -- the last quarterback he developed please tell me. There was a lot of cornerback Ellis -- developed. Try and I don't know that that's. You know doesn't that's sort of a tough one because there's been a lot of bad quarterbacks in the SEC over the years is that not. Just LSU remain you can turn that question around say how many. NFL quarterback says the FTC produce in the last decade -- the last two decades. Mean it's just it's not it hasn't been a real big quarterback league. And no -- also had the unfortunate. Louisiana just has not produced top flight quarterbacks coming out of high school. And I'm Caroline was the last highly rated. Quarterback. And you know 2005. And there hasn't been anybody. Come up since then there's been a highly touted Jordan Jefferson. What was you know a solid recruit out of high school but he wasn't considered one of the elite quarterbacks nationwide mean coming out of high school. Now and his early in anymore either his another muscle against Mississippi State hasn't played anybody other than Alabama. That's Olympic questions -- Manson and -- -- asked -- -- -- Mississippi State and I guess they haven't played anybody other than Alabama. So I'm not familiar -- Mississippi State the record this season so I can't comment on that at all. Here's. There are undefeated before they they played Alabama but. You know and it again they had played anybody either. To that only Mississippi State hadn't played anyone. Are you so I mean art art. SEC has always been powerhouse football there really hasn't me we brag about it all the time that. That I don't there's no read the the last the last -- champ -- games between two SEC teams. And rightfully so because they basically were better than everybody else but. I mean are we see in a dip across the SEC I mean we see in -- too much and too many highs and lows and not enough even. Even keel plateau high level playing over him. Called -- I think there's some teams that are right there on the cusp of look we see what Florida's doing but the and they you know turn -- loss to Georgia there's some teams. I think the east is really just starting to get their act together despite their -- -- fees and on each other. You know obviously due west. Which would happen at Arkansas and Auburn. Is the head scratch her witch but didn't gives. I newcomer like text saying them if you see what they're doing you can really see what their future. There's going to be very bright as someone is doing a real good job in recruiting. And look that old man really is it's going to be around for three more years summing it -- time he's finished what is eligibility you're gonna feel like he's been there for ten years. So. There might be some of the changing of the guard that. You know it's still when you've got checked Alabama doing what they're doing and no issues there. Georgia South Carolina and Florida Florida is further along than people thought they were going to be. Despite losing to it to Georgia. I think the -- to be fine but. He's still on the head scratch here's where it puts a book called burn. In Arkansas but Arkansas may have a tough time coming back. That they never really. A lot of what they were doing was you know -- -- Katrina they had some really nice to some nice players. But a lot of that was the coaching that they got from Bobby Petrino and the tone -- the bringing and that they might not ever regain that form. -- one last question. Why discounts only look at LA for quarterback recruits. And I don't know don't look at -- -- they looked ever looked everywhere but. Yeah I mean LA man and loss people. And I'm in the text question of people senate they got yelling. Louisiana knows that you hit it. -- you've got two quarterbacks committed in their -- visiting this weekend they're -- mid term graduate paid ready. There's not a top quarterbacks in the country from California. He's committed no issue. And an Anthony Jennings from Georgia is committed relishing the -- to fifty -- That's a dual threat in both those guys will be participate in spring football. And no issues so the future is bright if the quarterback position relishing behind I met our. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Thanks Mike I appreciate taken inside. Go to -- camera and what we can -- these two men go tigers.
