You know heed his call to six felonies heavier Texas a 787. Anyway if you legal question will achieve sports question. And you know it's in the middle of June. When the big news in sports is an ops Q or interview. Tune ups or. Radio station in Houston by an obscure former coach of the LSU tigers last miles I'm throwing you a softball here. And tomorrow you know I and I wish him the death and in this I hope he goes to coach and program that's. And she's been through for pro for a long time but. I'll I'll now. As as in the dignity and this time a year you don't have. Saints you don't have LSU baseball he should be having LSU based on normally would with the World Series. You don't have. Much going on that the US open I want talk about that also about the golf who whining about the of course yeah and but. Less miles had made ticks and took some veiled shots. At coach closure on. In a radio interview and used in this week in basically with coach only he was to be relevant again is that it well coach showed basically said. We've only put about thirty for our pursuit of profits and orange spray. And that we haven't we haven't unloaded our arsenal Leo on offense and basically says such as cool out. In coach coach miles took exception to that so I and you know when Europe. LSU football coach you shouldn't ask for cool patience. And that you are on safety net it is. Being the coach to bail issue and you get the most committed hard to hard working and talented players and you should be whining about this you know about patients. And I are you know out I've always been. Not on average. Can't say. I'm defending Kuchma this year I have a I have I have offended what eleven years. Well I'm not saying I was a supporter of him but I did given credit for what he did it. But. I was very very. Is a very interesting comments I guess he's got some banks about coach route taken over. But it is ironic. That a coach who probably go down in NCAA history is the worst clock manager. The worst probably hit the worst management the quarterback position the last five years of his arm tenured relishing. Being critical. And probably the most conservative. And unorthodox. And most out of touch I offensive power. And in in in football. Is gonna criticized coach O about the installation of our friends and I just. I just I just find that just in over the top and you know. I guess that I'd I didn't dump on coach miles. Let you do. But not down but I I I thought you know he won a lot of games he took over great program. And continue to for a period of congress national championship another one another lost nationally and who issues. But. I'm just floored. That first of ball. He would make any critical comments about the installation of an dolphins. And the second part is there now so it. He's been out of work for two years he did not get the used in job. He didn't market to produce jobs. He did not get the Ole miss job he did not get the Mississippi State job right. It there's a reason for that exactly now and not to say he was good in this time but right now. This time is apparently had. They'll let it you know with his hands past few minutes ago quote some high school in some way they'll have to. But it I just dumb you know it's it's one of those things where. You know regardless. Of your abilities if you're having some success. Especially in Baton Rouge and in college towns. You're a celebrity. And so you know he he got used to that celebrity got used to that salary. And then all of a sudden. You know he sees it gets pulled out for Monday you. And I mean how many years how many years did his players save his job you know in the we're gonna keep him another year and a canoe. You know you're not gonna. Germany it is his to his job in his you know lose his position ex senator senator who now he doesn't have that in and he had this this. Unrealistic impression of himself. As this great coach. When in fact he was a horrible coach in and everybody else in the country. Knew that he was a great guy his players login and his great recruiter. And he got like he got beat up players he got players but was it him what was it or throwing getting pointers while he was the bodyguard was only there a year islanders yeah Brooke Burke or you know actually. I'll in this in in a listen when you build the program. Right what do kids want. A Libyan TV every week a wanna be in a winning program that's gonna make him miserable. That's what they want when Europe they're telling them they look come to my school for the last X amount of years. We've we've got this program. That that Nick Saban built. So he rides the coat tails for a couple years with nick Stephens players. And now all of a sudden he's struggling here and there are struggling here and there and and he's still getting. Good players because some players. Prefer his personality. Right are two big teams in the SEC businesses this is the expert I don't want I don't want this to Larry and approach to coaching that I'm not gonna go because you know yelled and screamed at that area the authoritative will probably our quick quick throw up but you know but by Nick Saban I'm gonna go to mr. nice guy who's gonna be all warm and Fuzzy to me so -- Have fun and do what I wanna do right I'll. What was a quarterback that you know gut get kicked off. Give her a parallel running right through you know that wouldn't happen and Nick Saban team. In so with that that's the kind of athlete that went there as opposed to go to you know so while he was and aiming at getting good players that wanna play on Sunday. But his coaching. And then there all though I'll in the NFL. And Powell's vehicles and how would they go to that school where we're gonna run the ball 80% of the time it's amazing to me. In and who he would get players to come there. But if his coaching skills were terrible and here and had a quarterback. He mismatched quarterback. I think into the account for half as bad as you mismanaged or Jordan Jefferson and that whole debacle do we need to reprint and revisit all that on. I mean it's just he and terrible I'll say this bug. Coach arrow which he underlined first of all coach shows about accountability in the short tenure. He picked offensive coordinator Matt care he saw it was going south he did not try to continue to bad marriage he sucked it up. The finance he took the financial hit and got rid of him. The second thing he did was he went through spring training this year he saw that do McMillan. And now Brandon whose Darcy who joked coach show didn't cut it. He was in in the news wanna you know these were his guys are pretty much Brennan had to keep Brennan. He had to do salvage job with him had to do salad sharpen our ceases mood in the recruiting him. And they didn't cut it in you know what he didn't set sit on his hands and say you know what I've. I'll lomb last miles to right Brandon Harris Anthony Jennings or anything like that he didn't go into the fall season sitting sitting on his hands. Knowing that the quarterback position was deficient in fact he went into the year after armed. Carol Lu. What they transport quarterback from the IV week. I don't even remember his name exact and he was a store opening day he didn't set on sit on his hand these did you know what I'm on go out the transfer market to get the best quarterback I can manage Joseph Barros and eating care whether he heard. But our miles Brennan's feelings make villains feelings are no ceases. You know out then god look what you look at why Sean Payton wins right side the head Thomason. More just got in elected to the hall of things right. Well Thomas was would was not evens drafted. And he ends up these they've drafted a fourth round running back that year and he ends up starting in front of their running back in that running back and make it's absolutely so here's you know I'm gonna play the best players that I don't care. If if you know you're my golden child. You know top seven pick. And and then the other deficiencies he saw our. Was when the players were getting here they would night getting coached up specially in the wide receiver position so would does he do. He gets which she's been criticized for but I think it's good he gets seventy year old Jerry Sullivan. Who's probably one of the greatest. All top assistant coaches at the wide receiver this position you can ask Eric Martin about terrorists all right he brings him in and said look not only are we gonna get talent we gonna coach Yuma. Now whether that translates into winning season next year that remains to be seen listen listen buying he's been dealt a bit I mean to come on the season this season he's probably got. Hard is no question no quite a hard schedule he plays Alabama Georgia Auburn. Yeah Florida Florida saying now all the girls cleaners all the these teams are going to be in the top 25 in the play it'll. And if it's going to be run he better human and you better have by and beaten so these workers now in his goodness he's gonna struggle and it. Whatever happens and then I believe. That the expectations low and he's gonna exceeded figured he Lindsay games this year as the view YouTube you know there. But one thing he does he get rid of that sense of entitlement on that team. He's brought accountability. And yet he brought accountability and Hollywood is needed coaches. You brought accountability when it comes to the players and saying you know I don't care if you mark guy Annan. Mean if you not perform and I'm Margot upon someone else who's gonna who's who's who's Gundy about and so. You know there you go.

Up until the time the B prop termination of the property. Yeah. Well you're you're in other words reliable by law to do that any. But you would be liable to pay him a few wars right if you haven't heard. Well well well. Pain in my half and ticket agents that you know unfortunately. Can't afford to to have an attorney right now I'm on the public schoolteacher and I'm not using that as an excuse but it is don't. Have the resource what's wherever bush at the same time. 22 questions about. I about the situation searchable. We took out home equity line of credit. While won't matter I I gave her but I'll.

Now unless you have a trial and part of that goes to pass laws wages for a while the lies that you don't personal injury yours. All. Artists are. Thanks for Karl okay we're going to CBS news update we're going to local news fully back about four minutes in all things plea closest state team were backed exits area over Nico you regulars all things legal it's called 260187. Or Texas and 8787. Alright our -- and on less miles I think he deserved it. And because. It serves no purpose. To undermine LSU football at this point and if he's gonna do that clause are maliciously or plaza on our you know. I don't that happens when the more at least but. I'm he's gonna do little small rant about the US open. Just a little more. Golf this fall Tuesday as US open right and like for example. If you have football game in the conditions are bad debt and the players complain about the field. I'm like you know the weather everybody's playing in the same way tour. So we're going compete directly go to play in Denver. Right you go play in Denver it is compete at altitudes very high quick quick client yeah now the great the great thing about the US open. Is the great thing about US open is. Date may. The course like you did you while you watch all the other tournaments in the winners twenty under 18125. Under and had birdie birdie birdie. But here. They make the course very very difficult in the X it just expands. Every ounce of golf ability to have every ounce of creativity. Every ounce of patients as you watched Phil Mickelson yesterday. Out of frustration. In nested beauty that the US open. Is who can conquer this this is golf course that is made. To be almost impossible to complete. And to hear you know an aunt and in the whining about all the fun playable it's not fair. Ball. It's just you know that's what makes it to US open right instead of whining about it go play it well and announce on looks bumpy and here but. Here you know so that that's the beauty of it and I just don't understand why they gonna sit and complain about and say it's on playable it's the same for every player. You figure it out and that's why you the winner of the US opens the ones who don't complain no Juan who go out there and play it. Deal with the bad breaks. Faced some adversity. Instead of whining about the adversity getting out there in figured out how to overcome it. That's the winner and so you know anyway I'm looking forward to a peek at the last round I think it's very actually is very interesting to watch the psychology. Where you watch these golfers in the last nine. Final nine holes when there on the leaderboard how they respond. To that. Two through two mile know when in the US open and difficulty of the course so. That's for others that's part of Father's Day for most it's so there you go all right this go to phone Monfils go to Randy he's he's he's.
