Good afternoon. The are we saw issue is a should share one. There's a colleague of mine over years friend of mine over years that this death like -- deserves -- -- -- conducts business. Our conversations were very. Preliminary. And and fell short of of the any major major interest. And I got kind of recommended other candidates and and spoke to him I did not speak to Jerry Jones. The the view of five years and 27 million dollars is not true. I AM I can tell you -- I -- very much respect. Those razorbacks. And how they've played their last game. But nine mile an LSU head coach -- will be a notion that coach for as long as I can be so. The we've done so mom. You know some special things here. It's nice that the administration. Shall leave the media attention Jenkins. I recognize that. And say you know coach what -- be here seven years. How long -- paying your. I. I'm fortunate to have that commitment to a great institution great -- this whole issue. The I think about coming back did they have any questions along those slides. Did this will stay out. You know I had to do so. A number of issues but not. Not necessarily those but not excluding those as well. I get to save things for Christmas that I -- for probably about the last eight years stocks enough underwear. And now. It doesn't change. My yeah. In the comfort that I have goals or my cars parked and how wide drive to work and how I get to the airport. It doesn't change. Hands. Before children headed to college. I meter race. So. Com Seattle it's good that goes seven -- pills are significant but done. Number why -- unleash all the institutions. And we can knowing the -- like recollect I did and knowing that that would the open twelve. Being very quality work relationship. I hear what they had again. It's it's it's embarrassing to me to have to talk about money and so I don't. And now. I can tell you that down. I'm just thankful thankful. That. I have an occupation. Tremendous market back. Why else. I I don't know that I would have had a different thought process. But I can activated via. The smiles Stanley's awfully comfortable southern Louisiana. And I. I had to. I got teenage sons who. Global war off to school I got nine year old daughter that she's just happy she can be. I got an eighteen year old daughter that there's one college team in the news watch other teams and I think good. I think home is what we call this place some of -- in this exactly. Guy again it's a little steep hillside home. I'll pay good benefits anybody to go into the we've got a good diet Miami of Ohio I just so you know. I have no this is shot. This is a this pristine world. This team was wonderful to stay out of this hole. You stand in front of 85 scholarship. LSU tigers that loved playing football and the Detroit here certainly -- it has so much but disrobe and sit there for of those men. Pretty important to me. Again I think that that's not something that -- that I am concerned myself -- -- it just doesn't seem. Now I asked nuances in the what what I wanna do is. Win championships. Here and do it again and do it can. Tax fiasco via I look forward to tournament you know when we. In college football going to day you know fourteen to 1816. Wherever it'll end up -- Can somebody makes her way through that that gauntlet. To the end. Certainly I think. That would be great challenge but that could -- challenge can be met right here. In this room. -- again. Again I'm not done. Mentally get into -- specific technical just tell you that stuff. There was no. Yes -- no need. Why I don't know I think only young kind of guy didn't ask for the -- -- -- I think another seven years might well work. You know fourteen from now would be effective -- -- -- Paula Jones if I can get another seven. We think your best so. I I don't know I don't know if that's what would -- -- getting over what one thing it's been enjoyable. For me is just to play for men that day -- and victory in that room behind. Forefront too far. And I think that's one of the reasons that. The guys that I coach and people in this room you know they have success because frankly I don't think there's a yeah. Game plan that. That limits or precludes and so that being said. Hopefully we'll look up -- seven years from now on I'll be trying to get another one of these extensions. I out. I think it would can be accomplished here I think the school first and foremost is a tremendous academic institution that allows it's students. The unfortunate quality education gives them the opportunity. To have a career. Not the certainly reflective and athletic background. And then we have the opportunity to play. Participate. In Tiger Stadium will be sent to stay. To be part of this team this team. Has the average thirty year and year out. Good place for certainly western division the average championship and therefore the national championship twelve so. I would compared. What's with any school in the country and they compared very favorable. I don't know so it's up -- might be twenty just never can. So now I'd like to talk a little bit of powerful -- down. I really felt like this this this year on concern that -- ahead AF. Three games into it you know our our team really kind of changed. Number. Key players were not there there wars stuff. I want to say that we we looked it at some point in time when there were staying in the absence of -- -- Seven starters -- fourteen players and contributors. Can the opportunity for young guys true freshman to step in the fold them and can play and play big and be counted on. I. You didn't see the future kind of evolved for us. In this year I think really. It was pretty special our assistant coaches did a great job. That when freshmen or young players stepped into the fold the league what they did this statement. They. They've played big league player who expectations they've played like tiger can. Would never have taken hey tend to final but. Has -- played out. I felt like Christine continue to improve and continue to get better. Really wants to be a very very believable. Can -- yeah. If you looked at true freshmen have played in this games in these games from Lamar abortion pill mills and Alexander Jeremy hill. I'm Kwon Alexander. Pierce 31 starts true freshman. In this -- this season. And the opportunity to do the things that we did kind of reflect my opinion on the strength the -- -- The future I will afford to play is innate quality bowl game I think our football team will be better record turn. At least two starters to go. To the play. I think a number of other guys would step forward and be healthier and I think our our fans look forward to playing I think we will fill it full arena. And now. We'll look forward. This speculation which hole and frankly. I know that god -- she will be there. Independence. And they'll be enough so while. They're green was named day out. AFC eight. All American congratulations to him. Par around short term plan would be a couple weeks of rehabilitation get healthy. After the finals start practice. And just kind of narrow in on an opponent who reported playing. There's a semester strong. Questions. Well I AM I think that there's a an opportunity for. That correction having been made. And what happens is just. I think they had a big conference. Has -- controller play there and so. I'm I'm not certain but I I think that they were having quality destinations. And it's citizenship play that would be yeah. Heavy -- to. Why would say this is the great. Many delicious tasteful financed stadium and won't care about and may be -- part. Not participate very absolutely. In that time. In that event so it could be a great place for us we would enjoy playing there at Shea it's -- style venues they've done this team. -- -- -- -- -- And then of course we had a good -- do that then we opened the season. Here now. The next thing then. Guy I don't see that I -- do it. This seems very competitive team. I think find me eighteen that goes from another league very talented football team a team that's achieved. That our football team one -- play well represented. Michelob championship at stake there you know they anytime you play in one of those games that you your opportunity to stand on top of -- podium. And let him represented championship is certainly there I don't think we'll have any problem. And give our guys. -- in that kind of environment. Convention. Not certain. -- blue may be a little bit further out. We'll my second. Analyze. I think the actually I'm really. Critics quality matchup both teams have very good defense is very explosive guys on defense. Both teams have quality point quarterbacks. I think the rushing attack that that Alabama might have we give them an edge. Maybe it's because I know how well they run the football. I it appears to be done. That Georgia has stayed very talented. Running back several. So. Will be great match up. I've achieved -- very very good. One of the teams who were red. Who wish to see how he does and how he how he comes on. No I I don't. Did those things all play out. Why yeah I think there's betting there's both things at. I think he -- to their football team wants to play for national championship. Can play in the championship game I have I think we're all those teams in this league who sit outside their game long to be and it. That being said you know that was a number of injuries that. And the attrition that we had I really thought this team accomplished a lot and they continue to get better. I would expect that they were played better in the ball game and they did the anytime you know in the season so we'll -- kind of improvement. On one hand it's. It's easy tips to save it just seemed really. Really comfortable out. Well the good news is -- -- You guys in this room can kind of get that come from me pretty quickly Hillary. You might get it out comfortably in the new seven year extensions. I'm -- big head coach here for quite some time. Here we will probably have they have. An opportunity this with -- each guy and and really. The decision is there should really is and what we wanna give all the information that they can go I think we wanna do. His side give the NFL they had a deal. You know we wanna make sure that they while they have a good market value and in fact you know there. Their position best. For the draft. Some. I would not anticipate any changes. I would think that John Cheney was -- tremendous head football coach. I don't think there's any question that that he's the guy that has shot. A good overview our program initiatives understands. The the players -- it's -- player's coach. I think -- there's no question that. If Tennessee was was looking for a very quality candidate. John change should be that. -- you can but they won't be granted. You I look at I look at things a little different -- -- in the next media. Com. I'm currently in the position with a ten -- team -- truly -- play -- Who's fought like plus fought adversity war -- Becoming much more confident football team would -- the infusion of young people. Freshman first time player. And frankly they wanna play. Very all the caller I believe that you -- this. Hey bowl site. And make quality opponent this team. We'll look very much forward to compete. Yeah there's no update its. When did we would only do we look at the game could -- out of course you do played -- now post game yet we look at thinking. Yeah yeah. Your world war world yet forward looking at did a number of various -- she has a special teams but secondary certainly will be one. Where we would devise a full practice where that kind would be given to really bring young -- hall and down. It's one of those things that. We get to staff them. Coach is going to. -- there was the and make some adjustments to practice schedule so that we can relate. -- -- emotional player. What I out here that there's a guy that. Had plenty of natural ability came on. You know. Worked up through the program continued to improve. And really became a confident -- -- player. As she you know really went to -- two years you know the back in the -- sure he was saying. -- dynamic. Mike backer. Really he -- he's taken off from there. Continued. I think he is very worthy of any national awards or. Any. Any awards consideration. Yeah I AF again I think there's there's stuff. This football team. Again. Has the ability to play -- anybody in the country just so happens that we we fell short. -- ball game ocean. The opportunity to. You know improve certainly here. Yeah I think -- assistant coaches we. -- team we're really you know. When you move a -- -- you move another guy in he has to coach him he has to. Gracious level of play that allows -- -- same advantages and I think that happens and hear me -- Very pragmatic need to have happened -- and yeah I am I'm proud of that. I'm proud of the fact I'm just being. You know continues to improve. She's still work through. Those changes that are necessary for. Well first to win. What absolutely be difficult because those how much -- how -- I've worn. And now. I have great respect for. I think that that match up with the idea. It's difficult one for the head coach I think. Thank the players would recognize that this day -- traditional power house and you know enjoy the challenge. Look I would not seek it. Yeah I. Again this this team's leadership and how was coming together. You know to step back was never an issue for them they -- they want to continue to improve the go to Alabama game certainly was one that stuff. You know any number of ways could've finished differently and yet our football team took from that. We play with -- anybody. -- -- -- An opportunity -- to play that very well and continue I'll finish. I think okay. You're right. I don't want to. Good question -- couple. No he's not available. He's here -- talk. Sports he's what.
