A question mascot Kerschner earlier ultimately. What will be the faith and Alvin Gentry in Dell Demps if they don't make the playoffs obviously Willie get a pass for should they get a pass for losing a guy like we cousins. No. Know about the because of the whole body of work you can't just look at 11 season that's what they would be looking at the new look at one sees yet to look at the whole body work. And I think it's gonna come to a situation where it should be greatest news as it was when money with a year. You know in my body was a coach he would just came what does this say to coach at thank you with the latest. I don't professional sports we thought the issue occurs we soco it's a with from Tennessee but that they've been very few coaches that let the team in any level a professional sports that latest team to the playoffs. That that was fire now what mistake that boatload of Boudreau the coach from the watching capital but now that situation we'll watch it. Just never got past the second round in a jail and they must Austin and they have a lot to their payroll. But if we're talking about oh over the course of just you know as a coach can be steep the playoffs make it. And not make the knicks' season but. Now it's been far too many minutes as Christian and epic look at at what the saints organization hits on it's under the same umbrella. There was some there was some shaken up and it was so moving in a far office evidently it took several good drafts at that point in time. And a whole body of work about the saints. To whereas now everybody's feeling good about the saints they wolf lap below re org or it's because of what they've done it's the Euro. And as the body of work they've done via the draft and it hailed the good created some guys use. But a lot of places that you look up you Google picked delicate France has it been in front office and has got to Paula for quite some while. I would be surprised at all reduced shaken up there it's a new blood in there is or changed you know I think it's change would be good in and let's face it. It's it's been a lot of misses regardless of which you say hey we had to get geared Gordon Deal but look. You'd have to do anything you know EE if you look at ramadi we insist that we can be complete sixty million dollars to a that it won't be here. Justice that you TP. India you know he goes so that it the next team you want to beat and secondly for so you know it's the situation before you mean this is about here it. And I think they look at this was that part even if they do make the playoffs that is part of these changes. I'm back to phones you'll fill and on the west thing was mausoleum on WW well. I'll look you got. Like the rob football season but the the pelican the average space right in June and a I'd have to wonder man that's the kind of guy you army you know. You don't mind in any of these people that. You know I'm an agreement by its make. And you kind of remind me body it would make things. I think that would make it show credible I think. You know that spent about about it you know you'd be in the true and it is I think Ichiro then. People appreciate that watt unit so that is win yet. And is that it's an attack is no different. It's no different than you know us the other night you know Christmas at big give and take Ehlers you know that that I think there's three types of ways people look at they look at it with. We'll see it this bait and issued a pelicans. We got those glasses on and done that they want a game but they went about we we are asking me if they are all and I got I have people at all I don't think that. It doesn't matter what good they do they do everything wrong in the AFP that kind of relocated as a balanced approach. Right but I have another questionable. Others good OK all argue going national I've ever hit you at all from one. But I don't in my. Please please me at least every day and a lot to ask you please meet and we heard. I had an aisle with the national. Now Hillary used to be needed not a great. Dude imitates an outreach. Appreciate completely you think it but man ain't nobody contact me about that match. Evan. That now I'm down if they go. The probably meant we tell like and the runners well. I don't have any of it giving either so happy that was exactly kicked our coverage we know that as a I mean I'm happy to be here. Sports talk rolls on after CBS local news semis here on W drill. Andre Dawson a hawk will join us in about ten minutes here on sports talk speaking Christian thing and Eliot. Full lines over a 504260187. Had a Monroe BC flooding obviously tomorrow. As well having one at all and Fat Tuesday don't go yeah I was that's not a good Joffe group out I would look at it. Pre season and in the season we were talking recruit in the medical. A descent of the common group. My issues streak dismissed 2000 comfortable 78 in outlook Phil Gramm issued stated I looked at some time in. And now look at the top ranking in accordance you know obesity is play 00. AP. There's a pre season top team in five teens who preceded it deducted as the top thirteen. In the end of course the battle more. In it publicly that a particular issue. You nobody AP. Appreciate that right to come to an issue that they're Christians in six of the last eight years. They pretty much make it including 1234. Years they were perfect. All pre season ranked in a way LHU fit it took out there and and Ellie she was pretty he's ranked seventeenth they fitness. 2000 team and if you retreating to eight it it is a and eleven were pre season insect it. They finished. That's the pre season they finished. Fourth and finished second a year that would unit loss Alabama and disturb them and as that in 20121414. 2013. 1414 to two years that would just way off a base. Without the 2008 yet the national championship briefing right. Seven and they finished. And outside the top thirty that they beat Georgia Tech in the late oh at 2014. They were he sees in them but thirteen and finished 43. But usually Chris it is not often even in the years they didn't hit it they were all a couple off. In the fifteen. And sixteen and seventeen as you were pre season right. Thirteen beneath his feet though it's it's it's pretty stout if you look at the bank for your book Christian teams that have outshot go to the beat here. In the last five seasons either Wisconsin or Michigan State the last two with cuts in the previous three biscuits they. Well pre season ranked outside the top thirteen. And they finish in the top team to go though the big team has what you bank for your book and. Inching they bring it on als Reno earlier today an article from ESPN about. Howell to predict the college football playoff teams on that as it goes hand in hand with the recruiting classes and those show those rankings Alabama claims in Ohio State etc. And look out LSU was in there whether there average recruiting class I think it is a five your studies right around eight point two were so much that. So in looking at my losses maybe sometimes step on improved food the whole recruiting services the classes well some of them might be true you might Nabil project. A tyra Matthews a three star recruit and ended up playing like a five star recruit but by and large those recruiting services. And those in those recruiting rankings mean a lot there's a coral a correlation a parallel between. Recruiting well and playing in the national champion or the college football playoffs. You know Chris it is interesting because you know way Evan Nick Saban goes he's going and advance though. What you like to see thinks they've won like a class that's about eight weeks before you go back to Belichick he sets that is what they routes that. It's not the team at some of classes Ali's place pretty much. L as you did better in what they were expected in 2001 was that with a rare because it was good so that's the debate. That took nineteen make it a bit less of an Atlanta Marcus Spears and Michael Clayton. If that debt that national championship in an 0304. But if you go about what LA Hewitt is average and where they finish Christian. Get caught in the system and tackled to the recruits because of their averages eight. Over the course of listing years. There's only. And line and. To food. Three times in LSU has finished in the top eight. That was 2000 the end. Those 2011. And 2000 been here sixteen and actually finished empty it 2016. So they. Call it that the witnesses that is the system different. Big game more talent it what is being produced is in the fall of ranking like Clinton in the last team yet Clinton tapes and classes. That'd be in in the top five in three of the top team and the in the Q what they flip and we would talk about the other day. This is the first years since 2000. Eight in Alabama or was it you know. 12 or three because it at a glance and many years in saint it has been Alabama they've been double. Yelling and recruiting they've been 6211. And two. The last five years and look at when he finished right thinkers that you gotta you gotta look at I agree with you look at three of four year deal. That's the way you Tenet not want it to it takes it takes root for you it's a great clients. Hundred Aussie coming up next deacon Christian as a sports talk here on WL IMF and dot com.
