And good morning and we continue county down on the ice cold cold morning that they have to Gates's if you want but if you're not in the sun out here at Tiger Stadium. I think in the we can anything go below fifty Ricky coated eighties killing the wind is blowing it's going to be chilly chilly but beautiful day here at Tiger Stadium. As he LSU Tigers fourteenth in the coaches both sixteenth in the AP. Coming in and take on the floor gave it to Tony first and ATP and eighteenth in the coaches poll coming off the Tony is that going to the South Carolina. Basically Florida put today if they were and they punch their ticket to the SEC championship game in a few weeks to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide. LSU had this game this week in his robbery week next week. Thursday Thanksgiving night at 630 to take on Texas in hand and nick speak Florida visit Bill Campbell stadium to take on their arrival in Tallahassee. The Florida State Seminoles so a lot of on the lap Bobo clubs including a berth in the suitable for nearly issue should they went out and Alabama take care Auburn. Next Saturday in the arm ample work involved compensation Bible four to six so. When he seventy you can text us at 870. 87 there yet become Chris Lowe ESPN espn.com giving us his take. All the rest of the US EC coach or Iran has done in five games he's four in one now dating back to when he was that you as the now coat or two on. Going over there when he was in the contest at the trojans now gone back nine victories he had in their three loss to the pin is at eleven and three. They're impressive including a win when he was at USC or third rate. Stamford. And now also. Talk about the schedule he would exceed their point time turning that program around is turn this program around in any fear that he deserved a shot at that job and earlier this week. Alicia them particularly were releasing a statement to the fans basically saying he is actively working. Very hard to regulate you the best possible football coach and he wants to have this thing block that very soon after the regular season. Which would be one week from Thursday this past Thursday night Thanksgiving night oh a week from now at this time of what you already have wrapped up. They're regular season yet program will be with us later. In the program as well we're difference at UCL AQ what about last week against all and so. Coming out coming date. LAQ Michael ballclub. There. All of the against the fans talked the height and well you know you'd lose Alabama the season's over they've they've looked fit and if anything like that and L issued liked Arkansas team that have won. The boot the last couple years I mean they were excited that unlock the plate or. And you know they there was some videos that it's surfaced on instead Graham in Bleacher Report afterwards of the players celebrate in the locker room. I mean that that is what you have to do you know he can't. He came via situation now where is you know he had a angle this and that the bowl we wanted to go to like the ministry should go both instances. Alabama has been through on the bench and Alabama. But you know. It has been basically well you know other than Ohio State won when it was for the playoffs where we really want to beat him well you don't want to be here Oklahoma wanted to be there. And Ohio State in physique you really want to be there as Alabama had a hand too on the list reached at both. You can't get shall be one lopsided both teams got to come out and play and that's what happened. And LSU played extremely well last week in what they had on his props and distort numbers in the last five game and I don't know what's gonna happen. But I know taken full advantage of his opportunity is certainly is what coach in Georgia on don't look at what the elation in the department had done. And put together some of the numbers L issue is the only team in the nation. That is not allowed more than two point one points. In a game this season if a point one points list and everything to gain. They have only been scored on in the third quartile want this season and that was way back in week one at Lambeau Field against. The Wisconsin Badgers who have now a top seventy in the nation they were allowed just ten touchdowns all season long that's the fewest in the nation. And when he first quarter points in sixteen in the second quarter that also leads the nation as well so and toil. Chorus of of the LSU Kenya under coach or software with a point. Teams have been here outscored us. And the scores in the first half of games. And against Alabama and Missouri and also in the second there. Again it's old news so a lot of numbers there import some of these defendants Ellis you can have at a lot of their names heard. On draft day 2007 team can go back with now is that currently second in the conference entering the last couple weeks of the season against. Our tackles he has ninety in camp per game which is second all and he stiff second in this and meet the SEC in sacks. And third in total sex with nine Duke rallies six in the lead in tackles. It's every 38 point 31. Tackles per contests though they have the LSU defense has been phenomenal to be key game today. Kent Ellis you put some pressure. On Florida early much like all consulted a few weeks ago at Fayetteville. When Rockets are back they picked sixth and basically just jump on floor and made him play from behind with tickets I'm out on the comeback will take a look at the two quarterbacks in this matchup today ending in Appleby. Wants both at the university Purdue. Now here band roots started day for Florida and LAQ. Counted out to the Tigers and the Florida Gators and will afternoon kick off today. On WWL the point after after the locker amateur this evening on tiger radio 870 AMF anyone know 53 this is WW. Is one of the top Riders and horses and all of college football ESPN DES PN dot com Chris though he joins us now it's easy insider Chris. They could so much that Simon you know looking back I guess Chris you know going today at LSU and Auburn game around right around that time. A perfect storm opened the north east the perfect storm out there and you know in the Pacific west California. Quick question marks worried USC question marks where in state in basically with me and him would hearts thoughts and McCarron some that was kind of collided time. Question marks the going to be about what would happen that Sunday morning that the loser of LHU and Auburn and we actually found out that Sunday afternoon but seemingly says Dan. Chris you're as he is quiet down now they're an athletic conference championships I think in state both of those coaches have gone from the outhouse the possible candidates. The coach of the year. Now coach Orr is around his cotton in Baton Rouge got smog they instantly save in Auburn and Kevin summon now on the hot heat been a crazy crazy year involved with those programs but. You what sacred is on now down the stretch in this ACC we know it's you know it's a big question mark who beating LAQ coach. But other than that it is there's some smoke is as some fire in College Station with Kevin summoned over there. BBB yeah not yet he's the all. Year work and learning your politics it'll be. Bad stretch in the season. Yeah it probably is that for the third straight year like this. Negate what you're the last couple games. They're gonna collapse down stretch and yes you lose. Korea we're sick where you call it that bad but that pair of cracked out probably dollar a year. And you knew you you script actually spent four or. Or 404 security at our own stadium. Have great facilities in the basement property and they'll they don't care about two billion dollars. But it kicked it and that's not. The kind of money it would deter that not enough money that would deter him. Deter them from not bring him back as so like you got not figured. In trouble if this country's next week conservative election goes. To beat. Now it's it depends on. Who's the year they want to do is try permanent guy who would they can take our chairman got a a specific plan but not think he's he's on shaky ground right now for sure. Akers when you when you look at it the into the league Heatley could throw a few programs that are out there that you know I was that Jordan you know I think there's a certain amount of expectation impatient when you. Have a coaching change the longest tenured coach in the leave to go to those who Mark Richt coached Marty's there. And you know coach frees up in some games that you know Ole miss with looking good early in but. I think when you look at those programs it on the back and they have seen the level of excitement because they know what's on the future. And they have some good young quarterbacks at Georgia and of course last week which they Patterson and omits a chance to win their last two. But at the rest the rest of the SEC. Quarterback wise you know. All the quarterbacks better then then what we thought you know Kristen meet do we read anything to today it to a team that basically and so could standing in each conference isn't. You need to get divisions. A starting back a quarterback university Purdue Appleby of Florida in ending here in Baton Rouge is. You know a lot of people I think nationally especially early season before Damon started doing well. Dobbs had a hot start include off is that you know the ACC of the now five boffo at the worst quarterback play. Overall win when you look what is it about is that is that a mis conception the Chris. I ought always had a situation where some of the programs LSU has not had a quarterback that they need to be have a long amount of time all the schools have. What is it about the quarterback position in in the SEC is it is it far behind other conferences. Not that it that it has via an outfit it's cyclical. We see it in a world record certainly heard. At the top who were in league did not cross across the league has been way too many misses I think at that position have been guys who haven't developed. Like that this staff thought they would or urban Air Canada jumped out or back. Not a gets sent a particular. Candidate to hear what it is. The quarterback play is not rocket and know that Patrick picked up separate sheet say it is. Nobody recruit. Joba. The other positions. The quarterback has been now. People I think it would help especially if you looked at like one at least piece the visual. At the offensive line over east title should really really. Average that when you couple that. With average to Derek or back toys that you get what you see that you at least vivid. You know not very good football and not consistent football now. Duplicate that that is the good news speaking of that victory it's a cool what with the young guys partly. BO or I. The great here for true freshman you don't you better okay we'll start on the ball more accurately. Look at. Out. Bentley kid he's another true qualities to it torture true freshman. But he's got a that it Richard Gere your product and corrupt politics here rooting like can't afford got a couple there. Contract they were like those guys the kid at Mississippi State. At the shop so he's you know there are some guys are currently we sort look at their players. He mentioned shape and a little bit but true credit I think within the next year to. Hopefully you're gonna sit upright. Quarterback tribute to that position. Music at a platoon. Chris low with us this against ESPN insider for the US EC ESPN he is it that comic Chris you know at the seemingly gone back to the BCS. Things always took out we will always count Michael what's gonna happen and and is in bumble hole you'd have a note that down the street to see you have a four touchdown underdog. And you know Pitt and West Virginia that would not West Virginia often somehow LHU and Ohio State climb back up at the late season losses simply for the 07 championship and when you look right now at the movie of all the other night Cristo five teams. And either one is undefeated Alabama and the other full with one loss. Seemingly that would be what the committee wants to all you is among those one loss teams do you separate about people who win the conference championship. Or not where it's sticky is. If you have with seamlessly like Colorado to run the table and you're looking at or well look at their two losses to USC team also to a missed kimbo up. At Michigan State were to help the committee out and beat Penn State that would be probably the best thing if not you're looking maybe at a number two Ohio State team that runs the table. You can't simply put there conference championship. Do you think Chris it like move authorities at Minnesota and out there as it always need to open things up or in a couple weeks on some of those same things on a follow in the place. And a lot of the things that we see it right now they'll be answered because although his two regular season games left and once every few weeks. That's allowed a footballer particularly. Boy it is an industry the last few weeks to look at Thursday night and day use a little and so then last week he gets pretty Portland. The cup or so. I pity we've got more chaos. That is going to be a war. That technically it typically November it well here in a bit closer you get a bit on our team. That's the state you know that you are going to be out. I and how do you explain may issue when I. I would not at all. So I think Bruce you wore that country what we might see it here. That we air you know we haven't in the last year up there in a conference championship game. Those were called for what happened you're talking about games played the table were comedians to make election. A man it's like what salute but it can't change a match help balance it out. How how great would beg epic and is probably the only team that can look forward. A win and still be in your country. I think the immediately that the scenarios. Because most fascinating. It is honestly when there are okay which I think it will. But it wouldn't matter that they played record and nation would certainly come back all the would be a that'll that'll be walked over matched is now but well. If that happened Pitt state scored depicted in Japan. And so. If it's state wins that been the Big Ten championship game they're addicted chipped it. World aren't they don't see any way to committee. Could take artsy people prepared statement scenario even though I think they like what are the they would night. I think they're better football. Now will art they needed to epic in my. But it would it's been a pro am in the pac twelve what happened they'll Wear struck your Ryan is a lot this stupidity you're out there on stretch. Right now they probably Alabama on state Clemson. And that either. Washington. Michigan possibly. Or prince it's that they would not I'll like the fact those that we have a little bit of human element element comics pretty easily not sure they would probably more art. Or how to play right now wonderful body work to get the limited group. The play outward stand out like fourteen right now I'd like to see this football Olympic. Three to 45 years in the right have. A bigger body were to answer before we do put her out. Chris the low one of the best in the business ESPN EE SPN that I'm past that worked our Chris. How can people people we get on social media. He wrote it. Antsy low ESP Chris as always thank you so much for the time a man we will talk again to you very soon. It. All right Chris Lowe European espn.com with CBS news update. It's. One of the most respected and I trusted name in all of sports. He's in Louisiana we can network's sports director economist at WW had to come a long time. A coworker that I had to answer a pleasure to be around Jeff Palermo. Joins us now talking type of football it yep coming into today's game a tight series it's indicated that the Tigers Ellis usury tightens things up. Dominated at last and Utley is 3123. At least you can put his closest they've been in this series in quite a long time the six their meeting takes place of the afternoon this afternoon. And allow the times yet awful both these ballclub there was still always unlocked the play forward go back to a you know a bit these theory that time at this point in this series who have won this game would go on and win their division and represented you know from 05060708. Always has touched tough straits one of these two in the SEC championship Rivers in the east the way as the winner of that contest. From the Urban Meyer days you know runs that they Steve Spurrier. So forth it's always been the one constant LSU and Florida and today. A lot of laughable programs ought to with a chance beat them back the bank is EC title game that they win. They're going to Atlanta. If LSU wins yet and they get some help next week in the arm bone take care in him they were having huge. A bowl game on January 2 in the Sugar Bowl against the unlikely may be a big twelve. Team like Oklahoma West Virginia so there is a lot lot on the line may be the most on alliance yep both Ford LHU Florida game. It kicked off at noon in the history is there. Here I mean it's gotten out from a foot to thirty Osama Plaxico this it has been deserves a bit at times. It certainly does but sort of as of course part of the agreement that they play. After June 30 and since ESPN had the first right of the game. I would gain beat place news tip your opponent in the air C network but you're right there are a lot. On the line you know it became. Our spoke the other or like that he'd like to think people forget. You know what this game could mean for short term because. You know all the speculation. On. We could be Alan chief coach. All the injuries that Florida has. The fact that the game would move in any kind of game. What is the this game needs football program than any thought well I figured out what part of the style that the FCC east is. You don't realize that border and get wrapped things up here today bill. A lot of a lot of ball games that we highly motivated hopefully we're LSU. The whole day game at Packard stadium. Pot theory. Doesn't cover hurt them here and I game and they come out and play well. And you know jet both of these programs. How are using what I would irony yeah I guess is that. Tackle quarterbacks transfer quarterback from Purdue Applebee's and Florida who had a Italy in a inspired last week. The luxury to have in the SEC network they were a player out of the game. Maybe Clady Ellis who are consulting several times through the week he also played LAQ you seem to Florida South Carolina and Florida pretty much did most of their damage offensively. In the first epic contest against South Carolina. But when you when you look at these programs they are both hoping that a move to a better situation quarterback wise. Pass this year I don't know currently a what Florida has you know we talked to some people in the media. They like from the they've franks he in a may became a little more roll them possible. But they feel like that they may have decked out campus. LA issue forward moving forward yep I'm not sure if that's the case. They need to get their quote unquote guy on campus like Georgia hands like Ole miss has although those teams had a good quarterbacks the last few years they. Continue to get. Good players at that position LSU needs to run at it Jeff moving forward whoever the coach here for moving forward that person is going to really need. To you know. Recruit a lot better and land a lot better at the quarterback position. Yet the limo would this year Eric WW dot com 2601870. You can Texas and eights in the eighth in the convicted yet here and just the moment we talk about the quarterback situation LSU fans may remember. That but he pay francs with a guy that was code for the Tigers to vote at all times. In the end he one of signing with the university of floor with Jeff what what we were asked Hewitt about the quarterback position. It's certainly moving forward is that whoever won that with the LSU coach should that it can be something technical too after. Approval speaking of improvement one thing LSU has improved on the Cotto. It's been defects and as much as Alabama gets him on that rightfully so because that and have a ton of people on that side of the football practice. This LSU defense has been phenomenal yet and has been the one constant. More so times even Ernie straits when LSU has not been so without a quarterback. They've consistently. Mean on the defense but these last five games. Received a five game straits yet it's one of the one of the longest and best stretches of tiger defense we've seen in awhile. I'll agree I would agree with yet they Deke I think they're super. Definitely I think it exceeded expectations as far as what we thought that they can do we knew they were a pretty good. I think you know and I know we've done to be this good as far as how they've been really able other team not really allow more than a touchdown of the game. Ostensibly. United started off the plate so well that game against wood got that. It just carried we've seen other prior quality defense it's like really play well on the opposite charmer in October it just kind of stayed away. As the season goes along. You know even you go back to like the 2007. National championship table vocal yet at the stretch wasn't as good. In November it was in September. You know totally totally out match Virginia Tech team that beat up. That the bench has been good start to finish. Hey you know that interject a lot of countered there's a lot of guys who are early round draft picks on that defense with. Kendall back who have been guarding key engine all at a debut twice. So that they played really well. Opt in opt out simply stated that oh. Yeah you just kind of sometimes wish you had those first two games back CQ you're the first two games against Wisconsin at Auburn. If this team was any different it's in if they're what the different head coach what well what's the difference what a bit. It didn't have a quarterback that was struggling against though with Japanese. Where this team would be because. If they had one of your game. You beat talk about a team that. Saturday acknowledged what you would be on account of well the spinal they'll. And just because of that that what we're talking about before a accidentally hit the wrong button and lost you diplomatic whoever. Would guess that the job moving forward. I didn't had too much better job at it at get a final what they wanna do first of all offensively. But landing at quarterback position could use the coming Jake Kelly goes down against Georgia sudden they start state Patterson and in about a half. Ole miss at the quarterback with you to already set on their performance in the and they felt like it was going to be him that. They you know elegant with a back up in the eighth that he preaches no we're gonna go hit in plate Patterson now he's since that Georgia hurts his Alabama so. LA issue is gonna have to get better at recruiting at their quarterback position. No doubt about it and I go chase Patterson. For. Calvary that. Yeah he was in a recovering high school football but they prologue time it was the best quarterback I've ever seen as state. And a guy that Belichick as to get. And his brother here that they graduate assistant and he still couldn't get him to come to LSU and I'm sorry that an indictment. What smile dance that be in him that they were able to give him here were able to him here I don't blame him from going to all the you look at how Olmert quarterbacks and what they're able to do it now you quarterback can do it it makes. Perfect sense for him to go there but that word Jim both pitcher has the wake up over and torture in that he does have a history going out. Recruited quarterback development at quarterback and make an effort that that quarterback first round draft pick you up well. So it's if Jim Post truly interest that it Ellis view. That's where he has the huge advantage over coach or Europe is not old goat Jo can beat you we we just dull. See what what he's. What they've done here in yet playing with him he got bigger that I very storied and Oakland surprised. Has he been spectacular one out you like sheep Patterson. You know win last week you know but he has that he has been rallied. In. Basically. Single handedly. 1 o'clock game story he's been a very nice compliment to what is the at all that. And we've seen in this series against Alabama. Ellis you'd need that difference maker at quarterback in order to be Crimson Tide you'd need a guy in. Beat one of the best defense is in the nation. And what we saw that play. No that it was that Alabama just completely rattled him and he he wasn't able to do much so. The big thing I mean you'd bet that the one strike right now in coach bill. And found it yet what we heard got a statement absolutely but its lead. I I think it into words so if you go about what he says and what what he wants and in place he won't have a coach. Not far after Ellis Hugo finally gets a union so I would imagine it Monday TF that the Thanksgiving. A the first that he's ever going to see him if we can on December 3. We should know who the next coach village you would be. But I'll root rumored that this time next week at the line although irrational I mean that. Bet that's why you make a change like you did what I'll go earn it gives you a jump start gives you an idea. What you wanna do with your head coaching position if you chance that talk with other coaches through back channels. And then what that record he's wrapped up when they get it if it truly is Jim both this year and what they played quarterback. Sunday morning and he'd be decked out perspiration that period arbitration. That is something that does that need to linger if it does it would sit here. Middle with numbers December 15 analogies don't look that had coach I think they'll be very disappointing though. It is kinda hit it cabbage stranger you know we would talk about the whole coaching drink never. They fired while at the end of September. But here we are we got two regular season games while the record these and then Thursday it right at the pro so. That thing it's finally going to come to it had been all the talk you know should cultural. Jim bow out early and Lou grow weary or whoever else out there. If I think is gonna come to us had really really click though. I guess buckle your seat belt because Shaquille I'll ride next week and what they'll get well the record. He. Found it yet yep LSU Florida quickly give me your prediction. But that you know Ellis forty apparently put in the the column so we you'll have. Bigger and might be equal alternate and not think about it a little bit more just because in any game actor. Alec you might get off to a little bit of a slow start what is it like Packers to where. At Lambeau example MO LOR and the reason that we export threat economist at WWL dot com. Depp as always thank you so much for the yep it's chilly out of bundled up my man. I'd be out there are still yet to come. Break now we'll get hockey to the game and I grew a team that ain't bad on the balance it between the gators and the Titans got you down LSU and slaughter. A 120607. Kick off this afternoon here on WW. Nineteen seniors. Will be honored today. And they're gone out in style a chance to get to five and one of their last six games in a remarkable schedule here at home it's. Pete did a unique season in which village you picked up a bit how from the east in a home game. Coming off a thrilling contest in which they fail you it's into Alabama and keep out baby of course being a former. Tiger himself knows exactly what it's about T Bob. Senior day today in Tiger Stadium in a single day in many ways because not only the official thing UT about. There are some juniors there will be playing their final game of the tiger uniform at Tiger Stadium this afternoon as we. Yeah and it's much more interesting senior Dave and a bigger originally planned when you look at this game was supposed to be south Alabama that was going to be an easy win it was a very safe senior day. This one and not nearly as saved but as you talk about vastly. More interesting look. From the senior day was always added motivation it it gave you something. Just seeing these guys and it really reinforce it was one of the final times. Where you were going to get to take the field to these guys you lead with sweat with him worked with throughout the years. All right PT I take on what it is but these seniors and also at the battle in the lines again very crucial today. Florida upfront Ellis throughout front counted down LSU and thought the 63 meeting between the gators in the tigers'. I stayed at the new kick off and the point that all this evening here on tiger radio WW.
