The center of the universe college football while to be focused on -- routes -- today. ESPN college game day the television and the radio will be on the LSU campus in the big one number one defending national champion Alabama. Against number five LSU -- -- -- and a lot of success here in the state of Louisiana winning a Super Bowl. With the green bay Packers and also a Heisman Trophy is great Desmond Howard. -- now -- always a pleasure to visit with you a year ago at this time -- for the national championship. We were talking about these two teams in it LSU has any chance at getting back to a national championship. They have to beat Alabama. On Saturday night how good is Alabama Desmond. They're very good thing good and our guys you know think about that they -- Sit there you would to -- not the -- maybe ignored it does. But you know -- you know the typical exchange between me -- you know it did you get. I. Large deals over a great running attack -- to get actually defense. Very. Fundamentally sound team you have to play it. A -- it doesn't go out there and beat themselves it is what it is so people used to nick Nick Saban brand of football that. That sort of double in the country right now. Desmond LSU is a ball club book a tremendous amount talent and I had put it altogether this year they've they've hurt themselves. Red zone offense defense the quarterback has made some mistakes. In key situations when when you're facing a team like he has. But you have meant home of the team that on one side he's shown you. No flawless and on the other side a team that is yet to put it altogether. What the village you have to do from -- themselves to the state of his game. Well I think first whistle blows that this would be agree its difficult -- it -- about it seen -- here think that the surprise anybody and -- updated throughout -- couple of players -- -- girl that did it they'll blow blanket that seemed like -- you because debris. The same brand the -- ought to be out there we agree. They're going to be physical they window or are you -- -- data but it trying to treat you like some other teams. They think they're better that you would they want it show that -- better that you Internet. Our brand so you build this -- the -- -- that we play in that they you know but games like instant but LSU to. -- -- to compete at the bit in that department or the crowd a crowd that it that that would be I think. Yes off the chart the Mayo while while the campus right now on the some is just tremendous that gave it and they can't make mistakes you know yet the play. -- think we ought to about your ability to get back active. Opportunities of the league this -- throughout the course of the game. And Nadia please download the reasons. This menu today you cover this team last year heat of the national championship in this fan base and I think even the players and coaches -- now just. Did that they're waiting date their -- their -- -- -- at the what took place in January. Now all their crowd is in their favor but. You get down -- ballgame innings in -- talks about like the team that it wasn't January at all Crockett run amount to build. -- -- that -- that these that you -- -- you know you look at our would you but seemed like yesterday did you crowd behind you. You know -- the L. That didn't they you know it's happened. Question about that haven't been tested physically. Note note even been able to get it to the you know these other teams. That Portis has become an out there and been -- -- -- would what our shots over hand right. But it was a team that. Can oh couple it and write the power shots to -- -- you know make him -- -- out that the export eight in the cared. At that turned over here to. Apparently most specialties. But it. But he would -- been on development group -- on the football. Field. As you know that you don't care if you like that is that true -- and that gave them may have contributed to this book day. But in the -- he's never been. This is. What it's a bit. Definitely as you go -- the being sent in the happened out there freshman wide receiver article out of Miami you know some major contributor. All -- from the receiver standpoint you know maybe that. It's the movement he had -- -- -- in the that they play here and -- all eager to see you guys are going to respond. And it. Like the against that team that is typical at LSU. The great did and how disastrous against the ESPN analyst college game day. Desmond I look at the number is now I don't know why I'm kind of thinking here and happy LSU is at home where it's a tremendous advantage that the nation's longest win streak at 22. I have powerful program we get this thought -- -- CN Darren Manning camp on on adult. College football says on a neutral field. Alabama would be an eight point favorite oval Oregon. And at thirteen point favorite over Notre Dame. That's a neutral sites on saying okay LSU is that big of underdog at home and on a neutral program so. And lottery in those numbers and Oregon L -- Notre Dame. What I'll give Alabama the Saints have a -- Well I don't think -- build them to be out in -- and that that. Pulling stuff and work there you go about previous -- vegetable and -- to know he'd think about it that -- -- -- about but. -- -- concern I don't think bill restyled. Similar you know -- that it. You lately it noted -- the you -- fail at it -- soon as EC caliber the bit. Led by intact -- he may may be -- -- these there'd be is that as you see bit. But you -- him -- the get the -- maybe organs. All -- is so exciting in the course that many points. That that made a couple things out route though it was like that. Desmond -- outside Alabama was the best team you've seen this season. Alabama the best thing about about you have allowed it to wouldn't bunched up together I don't I don't really have a team that they -- Number two that you've built there acting today -- getting that'd been. Didn't in the -- Nazis earlier this beaten them -- -- opted to look at what did the -- to be -- -- -- -- -- -- Heels most of the season started without it right now there at quarterback yet he would ever Eagles didn't. He's starting get more comfortable that they. I think it's not that there at the most not the race that characteristics. -- local book -- as a quarterback. It's confident that once -- elect a guy who doesn't really matter. But he topic -- it by himself he's starting into a rhythm that they've become very very -- is that -- -- and it. Notre Dame off -- you know what they did. Let them right now in the Oklahoma it was so Duke -- looked pretty impressive. Desmond that we had this season and next season in the current BCS format it will go to the the playoff format what's your take on that is if you think it's going to be good for college football that -- -- -- -- At this point in the country in the business that the zone on paper yet so it is it is important Ortiz went out. The addition. -- Want the player up you guys have been. Hedo reality K is about also applaud these YouTube -- now. And have a -- to be people who is the figure out -- to me we would that right now. And found the great Desmond Howard Desmond great in college great approach that you look like you're you're really enjoy the college game he covered at that year's team would. What is it like to be on that sit in and to be in this type atmosphere that you say right now you can already feel it. It's can be profits there. We -- thing. The reason it might now so much that the work was Chris Butler Herbert street course you know guys. About them and obviously days. They've that oh in game day. She'll blow blow that it's so that they. They don't agree with him you know that you enjoy the what you were -- you -- Juliet that much more about it on the road. You know week you know to the net subjected game yet but we genuinely like each other -- we can leave that. That we have dinner and have bought into the cup in the lights chills it. It's what you buy Ford guys that this book and dad at that you know -- -- the but lately that. Lot of the -- -- -- is that it. -- that Philly that been the problem week in the we that. How should also why we are now the good thing. Our but if it's. Tuesday we really needed. We have a -- -- that who. We won the the most important reason. Like they'll do. But there's not -- in the game like he has been down -- we can't allow that detailed it is take good scary idea propagate pelted with food I imagine now. The we will. -- due to Rios is. The movement to them they would let that there in the morning. And -- in sports that probably round. -- around 830 local. And -- the couple couple sports that it is out. So maybe college football is it -- -- the appeared. I knew he would hit that outlook. -- -- object god though he has been in that. A little -- oh. Added that we were to happen to our production meeting so it would be an ideal vacation.
