They're the first that go on and Needham and to really cool PM very thin atmosphere so I'm outside beer. An area I know you you know about obviously spent this couple years in Minnesota but you know he kind of had a that in new didn't near first day of school like that new first day or kind of thing up in New England is laws Houston. I know what was it like coming in the tour the building and how was your what was your first impression on this campus organization. You know vote by way to equate they seem like they're very hard nosed guys. Work forward and other physical and that it's kind of grown you know kind of blue collar and and I like watching them so again under and be here. At first but it worked out there on Miller Bravo so again I'm that it. Talking to new campus cornerback to a hot icky here on WF and C.
