Eight died in Florida is about it exit than open and they were bought out a lot beat atletico got beat up there and take away again this year. So that's the coastal Carolina game it opens the season but we all know the season really kicks off for the gamecocks in week to win the the Georgia Bulldogs come to Columbia. Lot of South Carolina fans really think in the that might be a chance for them to make a statement do you it what kind of chance do you give South Carolina in week two against the dogs. I partly outlook on had been networking gear cheap victory back. And out and yeah and it doubles all all bombshell and I'll watch a lot of terribly universe is Georgia they are there. And able a lot of and that they'll address to graduates. I don't see Jake from habit I hear it lecture because. You know you don't have to wait our country aren't that Russia I thought it was still and nick gentle so what they have Roosevelt I got out and running backs. They'll put a lot of pressure on M capital are all third Al third at all. Expect to have Burt source this year a plant out Carolina we to avoid import our ballot by are. I. Not a good matchup. Tori Gurley joining us in the tech become gas line will must champ entering his third season. In south Carolina's head coach of the gamecocks the other day though. He kind of rock kind of inserted himself into a national scandal. When talking about the situation would DJ Durkin his former assistant at Florida. And in and really what his how to end with the situation or how DJ Durkin he's been in net perceived. When you heard will must jams defensive DJ Durkin. What what what are your kind of initial reaction to that. First mile up where in bulk of the meg air and LA law which now. You know I'm not a parent out authority and outlook by age about newspaper. You know I can't imagine in an all black is Curtis who it is not an article on all. You know does opera apparently aren't there to prepare them. Up on the coat well let's share. Not lately is very familiar with a host of being out. And he's just sticking out forward. Are not paying. That all the different note that there. I'm challenging me arch but there were no local people at all. On technology they help he's still at 80 these are avid I'd are there. But he got it out and training. You know dirt training camp that are. And he told well they're trying to split and a player the pushing each other because right now about it below zero and yeah everybody thought I ought to be an attack on camp and a war that came out played on terror. I think they'll work extremely hard and we that there well so you know as the analog which you have the law with that but I just hope there hopefully. Instead you've been out balls were liberated their program I'll Belgian media. You know don't want to come out and and and come what would include a bite out straight people lot. You know I I certainly understand what you're saying and I do think dead I think than the medical part of this is hopefully something that develops the longer we go lawn but I I also look at Will Muschamp a guy who. Yeah I understand defending somebody you have a personal relationship but I think this severity of the charges against DJ dog can. I think any time you go to bat for somebody. Outside involved in the scandal I think maybe you invite some pressure on yourself I think maybe the optics of a don't look good you think this is something that maybe he put himself a little bit in the line of fire. Even though you we can understand the intentions behind protecting your friend. Are obviously you have to go bust out on man beat a bottle. I can't speak with somebody yell let it all. I felt like about our current situation. In it'll be great out and beat air the orchard no matter what and hopefully would they have Bill Belichick didn't do just due diligence. And in the investigate hopefully you know things don't work itself out let you know to out of respect for the McNair family life if they want yeah I am without Laguna. Our editorial at let's back out and talk some more football here and look in the SEC east Dan Mullen takes over at Florida. We know what he did at Mississippi State that was an incredible thing that he did making them relevant year in and year out. How quickly can he turn the program around out Florida knowing what he's done in the past. I'll have a big and a quarterback situation down there would repay ranks thank you very if they're there because borrowers. You know he's got it. In output and the situation in basic well but. I just stay in a few years about recruiting and obviously they have been our state orders bella is not that we are at the blue chips. Economy and and put it together and at all. Oh well defensively they're still plan I'll. They've got their coach must have bought a silent majority though a lot of old that are out to be great pro could be attractive.
