Good evening eleven due respect to additional sports talk we incited a clear view -- -- and here are clear view -- kimono and Jones will be at 8 PM this evening. And running for a great calls drop off in nonperishable goods got boxes right in front over she came inches -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And we are in the heart of the mall or getting some money and some stats are getting some food but in our parents violence. Thought that special time of season the Christmas he's well they can all assume that. To get involved with second harvest. Food bank. I think we all work together in theory we can -- And you know and you feel good because you give me. How you've been blessed and so. I think this is something in the holiday season now of no matter where -- -- economically. You know so -- give more so he give less. But as long as you giving. You put your head down on the pillow you just feel better about yourself and that's right and you also could be guidance that your kids. You know when they see you are participating in the second harvest season. And donating. You know that they follow in the footsteps so you can lead by example and that always goes a long way. No doubt about it will be talking about second harvest and what we're doing it throughout this entire program and -- you know where. Stop on bottled up boxes -- he -- his -- and stop by example about -- us that we -- There was information at Texas now days seems to be reports at Texas that. Longtime coach Mack Brown -- resign a step down -- take another position within in that department. Later this week and now Alabama who gave Nick Saban a pay raise in March making five point six -- in the highest paid coach. In college football today extended him a new contract would give -- -- another race senior analyst. And right if Alabama online dot com Travis Friday as -- with a snap Travis. I'll talk to some big Alabama supporters last night in and just look at it from both sides of -- on what is that I clearly think Texas. Has a -- and I don't know three quarter court had their man I think they probably known as strongly as maybe 12 or three. Who he is and I think we probably all star of the top with the Nick Saban by. Not Alabama. Maybe felt -- paled at the making it the highest paid coach in college football to assure. This status and maybe have made it also the message was sent to Texas and whoever else Travis more so than Nick Saban this most recent offer to a new extension. Yeah I don't think there's any doubt about that it's not a question of you know whether or not he's going to be the highest paid coach in the game something he definitely deserves to -- years -- They'll figure out exactly what that number needs to be and I don't think it's. You know any coincidence but it kind of come to the when Texas is probably going to be in the market for for new head coach could we all know how people those pockets are there. Yet that I Travis I mean I'm kind of being sarcastic in the way but you look at leverage when two more. People I know even as a player what is services. Union agent I usually like licking your chops you look at Jimmy sexton. Now as an almost like okay. Bidder like its auction okay Alabama's gonna get beat us Saturday was gonna give me who's gonna give me I don't know all of a sudden. But then hit at Texas both of them up to ten million dollars just on the that you talk about resources. But I know universities and schools they don't want to get involved and a bidding war but behind the -- they could come -- today. I'll think there's any doubt I mean the money and the game is -- the ridiculous. Status at this point body not just. And it's it's all a result of that the TV fees that the the companies are well in the eighties today. -- -- value -- reached a point where. It's it's you know it's hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars on the television deal. It's definitely gonna trickle down into the coaching ranks and we've thing that happened and you know when you talk about Jimmy sexton has not -- this guy also has. Jim both -- got a smile on who were a couple other guys that are being mentioned this job and at all and so you wanna talk about a the biggest what are all the regardless how it shakes out. They -- going to be Jimmy sexton. Trevor stressing analyst -- -- online dot com as a special gifts given us the latest south from my Alabama perspective. Yesterday it was announced at Texas sources reporting saying that Mack Brown will. Stepped down away from the Texas football coaching job in some way shape or form a and also looked at -- heroes and Alabama extending eight nova contract extension to coach Nick Saban it is recently gave him one in -- that paid him over five point six million. Dollars per season Travis disassembled -- here. Why -- nick Satan in the that. You know I don't even think it would be about money the it would have to be related to it does help but within. -- at a university I would anchor the athletic department. In terms of the commitment to to winning at the level that they -- matter the last 45 years so. I just don't think that. Again. You know that it that it that it would come down to a power figure for hill. And really I haven't seen or heard any thing that makes me think. The commitment for UA has let this anything they continued to up any in terms of facility upgrades -- it almost seems to be on Angel by now it's something -- was going into the fact. And that program so I would think you would have more to do with that if you -- to make a move just don't think he's got a point in his career where he's gonna make it job. Just for the sake of the starting over again. And Travis would you look at this scenario this kind of a two part question the first part is let's say. He was to leave Alabama when Alabama fans appreciate it would appreciate what he's done at the university as far as the championship is that he's one considering you're ready. -- with that Joba would you have to have camera security around that statues so our I don't Yankee down likes. Yeah Saddam Hussein and I Iraq -- -- I don't -- when you look -- -- that all came about. About our and then I'll look at it the challenges of going to -- that Texas. If he would accomplices say we did Alabama at Texas you have the resources. You look at the big twelve vs SEC but you look at the hotbed. Of Texas talent. And if you get those players and and and you know money's no lock to -- a reason why I say that OK let's say. You accomplish -- Texas what you did at Alabama. And you would of won national championships. At three different universities LSU Alabama Texas Colin all's said and done I don't know what you pay off into the sunset I don't know that's his personality. Of course they'd never do that and -- -- I'd be. The greatest coach ever -- fearing he would have been and it three different places. Yeah I think if he did that he went that taxes Bobby and won a national championship. I think it would help remove the tag of mercenary. That that is really kind of followed him I think that's been quelled somewhat because he has in his seventh season at Alabama this is that it -- Anywhere in the head coach so I think he's. He's gone along way in in in her movies -- that tag. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- At this point in Vietnam -- and another national championship and make it very very different schools. They're still be some of that but it's hard to question what you got accomplished already. And repeated in other -- you know for national title to a different school. Put team among the greatest in my opinion so. He'll always be on regardless of talent goes down it figures they'll. As one -- -- great. What he -- give their greatest of all time though he does it Texas. Oh yeah I don't I don't think all the you can argue with that -- -- and it would also have done it in in a couple of different here at the B yes they're in a playoff. And I don't I don't know many other people that are on -- point man on -- an Urban Meyer perhaps the last mile split. -- the speech that you -- that accomplished in the modern era of of college football what would certainly be unsurpassed. Developing story here of course following what is going down in Texas and -- -- translate so what happens in Alabama trying to tackle spoke to the latest on what's gone all the coach Knicks say. I speak -- good Alabama point 47 -- dot com are able online dot com your oil it's not. Travis Ramsey analysts a ban on mine back on Travis thank you so much of the time we appreciate. It. A right -- I variety you know they it is food drive we are having a year at the clear view model. Come on out and Jonas for a 436 veterans full of off the second harvest food bank.
