We all know cats are intelligent. Felix Cat Insurance was able to secretly record two cats on a hidden microphone.

Let's listen in. Did you hear the one about the three dogs at the park? That's old.

Like four lives ago. But did you hear about the new pet insurance just for cats from Of course! What do I look like, a dog? When you're coughing up a furball.

Yes. Listen, Felix Cat Insurance plans start at under $1 per day and are as unique as you and me. They call it whisker to tail protection. Even furballs?

Even that. Remember the last time you had a furball? I made a TikTok. It went viral. Oh, that's good.

Wait, you're on social media? There you have it. Felix Cat Insurance. Customizable coverage exclusively for felines. Sorry, no dogs allowed.

Get it? Meow! Insurance is underwritten by Independence American Insurance Company and produced by Independence Pet Group.

Them, too. Everybody, OK? I don't care where you're at, what you're doing. I'm glad that you're here. I'm going to be hanging out with you for the next four hours. This is when I get started.

10 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Pacific. I'm being joined by super producer and host Dave Shepherd. He's holding it down in New York City. And you could be holding it down in your car at work, at home, to from.

You could be in the back of a factory, a restaurant, a bar, a police station. I don't know what you're doing, but thank you for listening. I don't know about you, but I'm having some fun here for the next four hours. You can always listen to the show on the free Odyssey app. Tune in on your local CBS Sports Radio affiliate. Sirius XM. If you got Channel 158, go ahead and plug that in.

And then if you got a smart speaker, you ask it to play CBS Sports Radio. Hope you've had a good Tuesday. We got a lot to get into. First of all, Carson Wentz is back in the NFL. You heard that correctly. Did you forget about Carson Wentz?

Maybe you did. Carson Wentz is back in the NFL. He's going to be hanging out with the Rams. Let's see how much burn he actually gets throughout the remainder of the season. Bill Self getting a lot of money from Kansas, basically a lifetime deal. He ain't going nowhere.

Will Levis. This man has been named the full time starter for the Tennessee Titans. And so Mr. Tannehill.

Well, I think you've seen the end of Tannehill in a Titans jersey. Also, Michigan being accused of sign stealing and cheating. Michigan is now pointing the finger at other Big Ten teams saying, hey, they cheating too. I mean, it sounds like a bunch of kindergartners running around and basically cheating each other.

I guess if you ain't cheating, you ain't trying. Bill Belichick's name is still in the news when it comes down to being on a hot seat. I read a report that said if Bill Belichick doesn't beat the Colts out in Germany, then Bill Belichick would get the boot this season.

And I'm saying to myself, damn, the NFL really is a what have you done for me lately league when you even thinking about giving Bill Belichick the boot. It's crazy. It's nuts. We're going to talk about it all. The college football playoff was just released. And how about this? This is wild. Shut man.

It's no there's no NBA basketball tonight. They want everybody to vote like that's what they want, right? You would assume so. Silver's progressive like that. Did it matter?

Did it help anybody? I don't think so. I mean, by the time we don't know. What did the NBA do? Did NBA players walk people to the polls? Like what happened?

To be honest with you. I don't know the specifics. I know LeBron was complaining about the refs.

I know that. LeBron was and that doesn't have anything to do with voting. Yeah, pretty pretty interesting. I think he would vote against the two-minute rule at the end of the games. I think that would be the vote he would want.

I think LeBron James would vote for anything that helps LeBron James. Yeah, there you go. Like like like most folks. So yes, folks, we're going to be hanging out here for the next four hours. If you want to holler at us, it's simple. The phone number 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4CBS. I'm also everywhere online at social media or on social media at JR Sport Briefs. So we're going to get into Carson Wentz and Bill Self and Will Leviss, Aaron Rodgers, even Hal Steinbrenner had some words about the New York Yankees and bringing back Aaron Boone. And so we're going to get into all of that.

But let's let's start here. The college football playoff rankings were released. This is the second week. We pretty much got the same damn team sitting here at the top. You got Ohio State, you got Georgia, you got those. Is it appropriate for me to call Michigan a bunch of cheaters? It seems like it. We got Michigan there. And then we also have Florida State. One of our callers wanted to reach out to me last night about and tell me about his his Charlie Ward jersey, which is I don't know if he has a New York Knicks version.

It's probably worthless, but that's besides the point. I don't know who has who has a Charlie Ward jersey. Shep, did they make Charlie Ward jerseys for the Knicks? Oh, my God. I think people forgot he played for the Knicks, let alone he had jerseys made on behalf of him.

No, I mean, I would say at the time, yes, but they were far and few between. What number did he wear? Oh, I have no idea. He was a backup point guard. He was a starter for a while. Number twenty one.

What's a while? Forty five games? No, Charlie Ward started maybe two seasons. Childs. It was Childs. It was Harper. Mark Jackson. No, Charlie Ward was never starting. Mark Jackson wasn't even there. I'm talking about the Knicks of the late 80s.

Sure, he was. He was with the Pacers and the Jazz eventually. Chris Childs and Charlie Ward didn't come until the 90s, man. Charlie Ward never started for the Knicks, JR. He was a backup at best. Charlie Ward started for the New York Knicks. He might have gotten some starts. So did Chris Anderson with Miami Heat. No one would consider Birdman a starter. Well, there's a lot of there's a lot of people who end up being starters. But Charlie Ward was a starter.

I could I could stand corrected. I want to look this up on NBA reference dot com because I always remember him being a backup. And people at the time saying, how in the world could this guy choose basketball when he was a Heisman Trophy winner at Florida State? It made no sense. He played for Bobby Bowden.

How does he not choose football? Charlie Ward. Yeah. He meant about three seasons. He was the star. Yeah.

Okay. But what were the amount of games they started? They are 82 games in the lockout year. He started every game the next season. He started 70 games.

He started three seasons. I apologize. He should have. He should have. I apologize. He should have played at Florida State.

He should have. Right. I mean, yeah. I mean, when I think of Nick starters, I think of Strickland. I think of Jackson. I think of Harper and Chris Childs.

And then eventually, you know, you know, we got to. Stephon Marbury. Howard Isley. That's a wow. You know, it's funny, Howard Isley also started for the Jazz at one point.

Yeah. I can't believe Charlie Ward started. You got to give Charlie Ward more credit. When I think of Charlie Ward, I think of P.J. Brown flipping them over like that's what I remember about Charlie Ward in the NBA. Six ten guy flipping over six two guy.

I guess it's kind of easy. Yeah. And then the Knicks decided to get off the bench while the refs helped out the Heat. And that was all she wrote for the Knicks in the late 90s.

Well, it's not like the New York Knicks were ever going to win anything anyway. Right. They've been on track.

They've been on track for the past 20 years. That's right. Ewing gets hurt.

They make the finals. Go figure. Yeah, sure. Right. Yeah.

Well, they have broken broken wrists. But anyway, congratulations to that guy with the Charlie Ward jersey. I still don't believe that Florida State is necessarily going to stick around here in the college football playoff. When I take a look at this and it's still early and you're going to have people bitching and whining and moaning and complaining for the next couple of weeks. OK, we're going to have people complaining tonight and tomorrow and through Saturday because at the end of the day.

Well, let's also be real. The rankings might change. OK. Ohio State. They got Michigan State up next.

All right. Ohio State should be able to take care of them. And we also have Florida State. They're going to take on the Miami Hurricanes.

OK. This is also a chance and an opportunity for Florida State to add another victory to their ledger and their biggest victory for the season. I would say is the beginning where people were like, dammit, FSU came through in the Seminoles beat LSU's Tigers and LSU looks like hot. I'm not going to say LSU looks like crap, but LSU in at the top of the rankings. And so if that's Florida State's biggest ranking here, then dammit, let me know what happens with with Washington, because I think that might be the team that actually jumps and removes Florida State, depending on how the rest of this season goes. Washington, the Huskies, they got a bigger and better matchup coming up against Utah, who also happens to be ranked. And then we got the Oregon Ducks at number six. Well, Washington beat the Ducks.

So I think you can keep them the hell up on out of here. And so I don't really foresee a change or a big change in the college football playoff rankings. You do you want to swap out Ohio State and Georgia?

Possibly. Is Michigan going to fall out or, you know, what happens with Ohio State and Michigan? If they play a close game, they'll both stay in. But if one of them teams whoops the other team's ass, somebody is going to go ahead and get the boot.

And then we got two of these teams that I just mentioned. They got some tough matchups this coming week. OK, real tough matchups. First, Michigan is going to take on Penn State.

Going to be tough. And you got Georgia taking on Ole Miss. Two teams that at least Ole Miss has one loss and they're going to give Georgia a fight. So it's going to be interesting how the rest of this college football playoff rolls around. But if I had to be a betting man, not too much of a betting man, I'd stick with Ohio State, Georgia. I think Michigan stay in and Ohio State will both stay in unless they one of them blows out the other.

And I think Washington, they do have a good chance, I believe, at swapping out or getting Florida State out of that that top four. 855-212-4CBS. It's 855-212-4CBS. Mike is here from Atlanta. You're on CBS Sports Radio. First call of the show.

What's up, Mike? Hey, yeah, let's get Florida State out of there. They're too tough. They're on a comeback. They're going to take over again.

Yeah, let's get them out of here. Man, come on. Hey, I've got a Charlie Ward jersey, OK?

He will wear number 17, and I'm going to be wearing it at the game Saturday. I've been listening to this all week. Let's talk about Florida State. You're on the radio.

Go for it. I know. Let's talk about them.

I mean, what's all the hate? We play, I went through this last hour with the other hosts, and I love you, JR. I listen to you every night, but I'm tired of it. What if, OK, so you're saying that the Michigan – Hold on. Wait, wait, wait. Hold on a second. I just said there were going to be people calling up and whining, bitching, moaning, and complaining. So go ahead. Rock yourself out.

I am. OK, so you're basically saying the Michigan and Ohio State game doesn't matter unless somebody blows each other out, because one of them is going to lose, but that's not going to matter, so we'll just keep one of them in, right? What if Washington and Florida State end up both undefeated and the Michigan-Ohio State team loses? You've got to put Florida State and Washington in there, right? Eh, it depends.

You'd put a 1-0 team? You asked me a question. Can I respond? OK, let's go. No, it's not. It's not let's go.

I'm going to respond. Here's what I think about the college football playoff rankings, and this is why I also said I expect someone, and thank you for doing so, to call up and whine and bitch and moan and complain. I think the rankings are pretty ridiculous. I think how they're set up is pretty stupid.

You basically fly in about 25 people. You stick them in a room, and they sit in front of computers, and they try to figure out what teams belong in here. I agree. And the system as it exists is flawed. So personally, I find it wholly ridiculous to sit around and go, well, if this team beats this team, I can only give you an overall as to what I believe will happen. Because there is no way, no possible way, to say, well, if this team beats this team and this team... and the strength of schedule and this and that, the best thing that they can do is might as well stick with the BCS and all these idiots sitting in a room in front of their laptops and computers making tons of money. They ain't doing nothing but looking at the BCS anyway.

So all I can tell you is what I believe what the stupid human sitting in a room looking at a computer will tell you. And that's it. And so I'm not taking away from what Florida State has done, but I can tell you based on their schedule, if the biggest win is LSU in the opening of the season, and Washington, if they go ahead and beat Utah, I think it goes without saying that, hey, they may have a better chance of getting in. Clemson is, quote, down this year. I get that. But at Clemson is not a good win.

It took us overtime. That's a tough place to play. So I'm going to say LSU and Clemson.

Correct. And if you if you listen to Dabo Sweeney, he's even more thrilled right now, especially that kid Tyler, that he went out there and beat Notre Dame. I don't listen to Dabo three years ago. I'm sorry.

I quit listening to Dabo three years ago. Well, congratulations. I'm sure you're still aware of what he said. I'm not taking away from beating Clemson. But at the same time, the largest win on the season is LSU to open things up. That's all anybody talked about.

It doesn't mean that it's right or it's wrong, but that is what the country talked about. It was the open of the season. Do you think do you not think that Florida State is one of the most balanced teams on both sides of the ball? We actually play defense. We've got a front seven and a back four. The whole starting defense is solid.

The D line, the linebackers and the and the secondary. I mean, we played both sides of the ball. I'm not taking away from what the team is or is not. But you're talking about the rankings. Yes, I got you.

Correct. I'm talking about the rankings. If you want to sit here and start telling me about the third defensive back, you know, and nickel or dime, you can knock yourself out.

What I can tell you is this. When it comes to looking at Florida State, when you think about the team that is nine and oh, that people didn't expect to be nine and oh, I don't want to call them the little engine that could because by all means they are not TCU of last year. But people aren't necessarily fawning over Florida State.

And on a lot of times, perception is reality. And the reality is that if there is going to be a team that gets bumped out, as I said, unless Ohio State or Michigan beat the living hell out of each other. And if Washington, let's see what they do against Utah this weekend. You know, people, people ain't necessarily may look at Florida State the same way.

You're right. And this this will play out on the field how it should be. And I like that. And I appreciate your sensible logic with the breakdown on it. I'm loving to talk college football. Hey, well, thank you, man.

This I try my best to make sense. Thank you, Mike, for calling from here. Thank you in Atlanta.

No doubt about it. Eight five five two one two four CBS. He understands it's all logic. I got no beef with Charlie Ward and do nothing to me. What do you do? Play basketball for the Knicks. That's the worst thing that happened. Charlie Ward. I can't take away from nothing that he did in Tallahassee.

What I would do. Come on. Jacob is here from Louisville. You're on CBS Sports Radio subject.

Hey, what's up? There are a way to say that the right way, my man. It will say why Louisville almost how do people say it? Well, you said right.

There's people here. They say Louisville and Lewisville and it's Louisville. You got to say with the mouth of marbles. Well, listen, man, I'd have been around the block a few times, but go ahead.

I appreciate it. I'm mainly here to talk some more on this FSU stuff, but I'm a Louisville fan, obviously. And it's all adding up that their path is going to go through us, the ACC Championship game. And to be honest with you, we we're not scared of Florida State and we haven't been for quite a quite some time now. And you can go ahead and compliment Lamar Jackson for that whooping their butts. You know, sixty three twenty when they was ranked second, we was ranked tenth here at LNN, formerly known as Papa John Cardinal Stadium.

But wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. What what what is the name of the place now? LNN Federal Credit Union Stadium. A mouthful, right?

What do people call it today? For real? LNN.

Oh, my God. Does LNN or Cardinal Stadium one or the other? Yeah, let's stick to Cardinal Stadium. Right.

Keep it sweet. But we like I said, we just haven't feared them. Their quarterback transferred out from us because he couldn't get PT past our quarterbacks. He's a hell of a player and he's in his sixth year of college football.

So you can't take that for granted. But at the same time, man, like, you know, with the way we've been playing, we we just been running the football and Brahms known to be a passing guy. And it's like we just our backup running that's got one hundred forty six yards and three touchdowns on Virginia Tech with surging.

But there's still nobody. But at the same time, FSU got lucky on us the last time we played. And every other time we smacked them. So I'm not too worried about FSU. And to be honest with you, to complement them some, though, when I was looking at power guru rankings or the guru power rankings with all the Florida State was the highest ranked team and strength of schedule at the time. At number like thirty two, I think it was. And then behind them was Ohio State thirty four. And then Georgia and Michigan were seventy two and seventy six.

And so they were far out and Bam was at number four. So as I was looking at, I was like, man, if it comes down to it and Bama ends up beating Georgia in the college football or the SEC championship that I don't. You know, and like you're saying, I heard you say, you know, it's the dummies that are going to end up taking the logic that I'm spitting out right now and throwing it out the window. But with Georgia's power, I'm sorry. Go ahead. No, no, I was just going to say it was nice to you know how good it's been to not talk about Alabama. You know how nice that's been. I'm trying to keep it that way.

Well, go ahead. Finish. I was going to say if they you know, since they were so high up there, if they end up beating Georgia, I just didn't see how you could argue a one loss Georgia in the college football playoffs with how weak their schedule has been this year. Oh, they played that they played a tougher one. Yeah, they played powder puffs, but I think a lot of people would pitch a fit and I know you're not supposed to think about past seasons. You only think about this season.

I think there'd be a lot of people pitching the fit to not have the the reigning back-to-back national champs in there. Yeah, not get my third shot. Yeah. It's like oh my God. How could you not and oh my God, they've won so many games consecutive. I think they I think they'll get in there and thank you Jake appreciate you for calling up man. Thank you. No doubt about it.

Oh my God. Could you could you imagine like Georgia would have to be embarrassed to just not make the college football playoff at this point in time. They'll be fine.

I ain't I ain't sweating them. Well, what's one school that I actually I do want to show love to it's Tulane man. Like Tulane is the only school not in the power five to be hanging out here in the college football playoff rankings.

I like it. Shep, are you familiar with with Tulane as like a university forget football. Are you familiar with the school? Yeah, I mean, they're in a 10 school if memory serves me correctly, right? Well, not not it. I'm not even talking about athletics, right? I'm talking about like the school in general.

Uh, they're in there in Louisiana. Yes. Right.

Okay, we'll play in a go ahead. I mean, that's I mean, that's it's a good academic school. Correct. That's right.

That's the point, right? I was going to say something else and I'm not afraid to say it because I like it. They treat me nice there. Yeah, it's uh, it's an academic school. Okay, that's the best way I could put it without calling it a nerd school.

Okay. There are a lot of people there are a lot of young people who are interested in academics. It is not an athletic school. The basketball gym is a basketball gym, not an arena.

It's in a building. So the football program, obviously, doing damn good right now. But as an overall, it is just so good to see Tulane here, you know, as a as a part of the rankings, because I mean, they're number 23 out of 25.

But all things considered, they not supposed to be here. And the school is real heavy on academics and business. People send their kids from all over the country, just to be down in New Orleans. People send their kids from Los Angeles and New York, just to go to Tulane, and then they have an opportunity to party on Bourbon Street on the weekend.

So congratulations to all my friends at Tulane for even just being in the conversation. JR. Yes.

Correct me if I'm wrong. The only guy I can think of that's relevant in either football or basketball that played there is didn't Forte play there? Matt Forte?

Oh, the running back? Yeah. Yeah. I don't man.

I think that's the look. Okay, let's look that up. I don't know. That's the only person I because there's no basketball player that ever came out of there. That I know. So, but Forte. He went to Tulane. He did. Matt Forte went to Tulane. Right. He had himself a borderline Hall of Fame career.

Matt Forte? I said borderline. Borderline. That almost doesn't count.

Monica and Brandy told me that. One of them two. That's that's fair. And that's the only claim to fame they have in either the two major sports. A former Chicago Bear who played on a team that didn't go anywhere. And it wasn't because of him. They had failures in spite of him. He was the highlight of that team for a while. But look, the quarterback looked like he'd rather be smoking a cigarette than playing football.

Man, you're not kidding. What's that guy's name? Jay Cutler? Yeah, Jay Cutler.

He retired and then retired again. He shares the name with that. Isn't the other Jay Cutler? He's a bodybuilder, right?

I'm not sure. I know there is no more miserable human being who have ever played NFL football than Jay Cutler. I know he was married to that Kristin Cavalieri.

Kristin Cavalieri. Yeah. And that's the reason to be happy. Now they're divorced, right?

Yeah. I mean, Jay Cutler, when he was happy, he was miserable. Well, he looked like a miserable you-know-what on the sidelines. So, hey, good on him. I wonder what he's doing now.

Not really. It's the JR Sport Reshow here with you on CBS Sports Radio. Look, congratulations, Ohio State, Georgia, Michigan, Florida State sitting at the top of the college football playoff rankings. We come back from break. We're going to talk about Michigan because Michigan being accused of cheating, they're doing what a lot of human beings do.

They're pointing the finger at other people for cheating, too. We'll talk about it here on CBS Sports Radio. Don't move. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. JR wants to hear from you. Call him now at 855-212-4CBS.

That's 855-212-4227. So as we open up the show talking about the college football playoff rankings, we were able to talk about Michigan without diving too deep into all the cheating that's been going on. Allegedly. We know that yesterday we also learned that if Jim Harbaugh is to be punished or suspended, that both Michigan and Jim Harbaugh are ready to take legal action.

What a shock, right? You're going to sue and let's be real, if you put things into litigation, we're at the end of the season. Come on. You want to tell this man that he can't coach the remaining, what, three games? The man was suspended for the first three games for recruiting violations, and now you're going to get him on the back end for signs being like, come on. And this is all the other teams basically having sour grapes. Might as well try to get Jim Harbaugh before he walks out of the building.

I've been saying for about a week now, I think he's going to be the next head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. And so this is an interesting story that has also come out as a result. And that's Michigan in the midst of being investigated themselves for sign stealing, that dude, Connor Stallions, who's no longer a member of their football staff, the one who went to other teams' stadiums and scouted them and snuck onto the field and tried to steal signs, that guy, even while that's being investigated, Michigan contacted the Big Ten. And I guess they pretty much said, hey, we're not the only ones potentially cheating.

They say that Rutgers, Ohio State, and Purdue also went ahead and shared information amongst themselves regarding Michigan's signs. And it's like, come on now. Like, this is what we're doing? You're being investigated, so what do you need to do? You need to point the finger at other folks, too.

And let's also be clear. Like, what's wrong? I don't think there's anything illegal about this. What's wrong with one team sharing information with another team? As long as they're not, like, doing what Michigan did, allegedly, by having a guy scope and scout out other teams before they play them in person, what's the big deal? What's the problem?

What is the issue? I mean, at the end of the day, why can't one coach on another team share information with another coach on another team? Ain't nothing wrong with that. And so this is a case of, hey, I'm in trouble, and so I'm going to tell on you, too. It's what siblings do all the time. It's like, if I'm going down, you got to go down with me.

If I'm getting got for stealing cookies out of the damn kitchen, I'm saying that you stole the crackers. I mean, this is just what this is. So I am just as interested, to be honest. And what happens the rest of this season with Michigan as I am with the college football playoff? Because, like TNT says, I think TNT knows drama.

I don't know if they still use it. I love drama. As long as I'm not a part of it, I'm absolutely cool with drama. So I want to see what happens with Michigan. I want to see what nonsense that Jim Harbaugh decides to spit on his way out the door. This is the same man who tried to get an interview and thought he had a job with the Minnesota Vikings, and when he didn't have it, he came going back to Michigan like nothing ever happened. 855-212-4CBS.

It's 855-212-4CBS. Tony's here from New Orleans. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

What's up, Tony? Hey, JR. Good show as always. Hey, I heard a few minutes ago you guys were giving a little props, a little kudos to the Tulane Green Wave. I want to give some props. You guys forgot two other players that came out of Tulane that had pretty good successful careers in the NFL. Shaun King played at Tulane during the undefeated season before Katrina, and then he played in the NFL for the Bucs for many years.

And we had a guy, I believe his name was Patrick Ramsey, a pretty good quarterback, played in the NFL a few years also, so I wanted to give them their props. But I want to ask you a question. Before you do that, I'm glad that you brought that up, because I actually know Shaun, and Shaun actually might be listening right now, and maybe if he was, he'd probably hit me up. My apologies to you, Shaun. But go ahead, Tony.

Yeah, that's all right, man. We all get a little brain freeze every now and then. Hold on, Tony, Tony. Why do you talk so damn fast, man?

Slow down. Oh, man, I got a lot to talk about. Well, you don't have time to talk about a lot. Well, hold on a second. I didn't have brain freeze. I just forgot, man.

But go ahead, please. Wanted to get you guys' opinion on the Davis fellow, Mark Davis. I know his father owned the team for years, and now he's at the helm. Why does he go through coaches? I know the deal with John Gruden. He had to get rid of them.

The pressure was on. But why does he get rid of these coaches, man? I mean, after two or three years and they don't produce, they're out of there.

You got to give them time to build a team. He's spending all this money to pay these guys, and they're no longer here. Did you hear the guy get mad at me last night about Mark Davis? Did you hear that?

No, no. Actually, I worked late, and I missed it. I missed the show last night. There's a guy who called up and said to me, hey, JR, why are you so critical of Mark Davis? So, Tony, thank you for giving me an opportunity to also be critical of Mark Davis again. He's a dude who just ended up with the team because of his dad.

Okay? And I mean, if we want to find a bright side for what's going on with Mark Davis, it's that maybe, just maybe, Tom Brady is whispering something into his ear that maybe helps get him on track. That's it. It has nothing to do with him as a person. It just happens to be that when I think about Mark Davis, I think about a dude who has hired a bunch of bums.

Yeah. And I put Gruden in there, mostly because of his email messages where he comes across as a crass jackass, and I would put him in that category as well. And so when I look at Mark Davis, it's tough not to look at his haircut. Yes, I said it. Three Stooges haircut.

And his decision-making for the Raiders has also been very Three Stooges-esque. That's just it. And it's calling up from New Orleans. You're on CBS Sports Radio.

What's up, Ann? Oh, JR. Love your show. Just wanted to tell you thank you for the shout-out for my Green Wave. We are so excited about our team.

Our school is a great school, and we're finally getting a little recognition. So thanks, man. Have a great night.

Absolutely. Thank you, Ann. Shout-outs to Ann. Hey, Shep, I don't know what Ann ate for dinner, but I know it's better than anything you or I ate.

That's probably true. Ann is lovely, JR. She really has such a wonderful – You know her? You know her? Well, I can just tell by her accent.

I – you know, it's something we don't do enough in the Northeast. An accent? Accent, yeah. She had one? Beautiful one. Oh, okay.

I didn't notice, but go ahead. It was beautiful. Spoke with proper diction, and you can hear the tone in her voice. She just – I mean, she could tell you the worst news in the world that you're getting fired in, and it still sounds sweet. Okay. Well, okay. All right. Well, let's call her back one day, all right?

She can deliver news. There you go. By the way, shout-out to Ryan Shell, JR. He also pointed out the formidable J.P. Lossman also played for Tulane. I didn't know this many NFL stars played for Tulane. Now, Shaun King, I would say, had a better career than Patrick Ramsey and J.P. Lossman. Oh, absolutely.

Absolutely. And God bless Shaun, man. When did I see – I think at the Super Bowl.

I think I saw him at the Super Bowl. Yeah. Listen, man, it's tough pulling out. I mean, we're – look, I don't want to say we're reaching here, but we're talking about quarterbacks and backup QBs. It's better than nothing. Not everybody makes the league, but look, ain't nobody going to look at Tulane and say quarterback of a football factory. That it is not.

But if you don't interweave Patrick Ramsey into a football conversation, regardless of him being from Tulane, it does not indicate you had a brain freeze. Oh, no, I'm saying. Yeah. Like, nah, bro. Like, I think I'm going to remember that. No, not at all.

Not unless you're bringing it up. But good on – was it Tony, Tommy? Oh, Ryan Shell.

No, no, no. The guy who called up and said that. Tony, Tommy from New Orleans. Tony, yeah, yeah, yeah. Boyle said Tony.

I believe Boyle. Yeah. Oof. What? Who?

What? Oh, not Tim Boyle. Pat Boyle. Oh, Pat.

That's right. Pat is sitting here. Hey, Pat, how you doing, man? You good?

Good, JR. I'm locked in. I'm locked into this incredible program, as always. Well, thank you. Y'all thank.

I appreciate that. Anyway, hey, Pat, it's your time to shine. You ready?

I am ready. You're listening to the JR Sport Brief on CBS Sports Radio. Hey, how you doing, man? I listen to you every night on the way home from work. I appreciate what you're doing, man. You're a bad mamma jamma.

Call in now at 855-212-4CBS. It's the JR Sport Brief Show here on CBS Sports Radio. We talked about Michigan. I don't want to say all that cheating that they're doing. And now pointing the finger at other teams saying, hey, look at Rutgers, Ohio State, Purdue.

They're shining. Hey, look at Rutgers, Ohio State, Purdue. They're sharing information. They're cheating, too. Like, Big Ten is like, hey, listen, is that really cheating? Like, worry about your own stuff right now. As a matter of fact, Harbaugh, you know, asked all of these questions about what's going on. He don't want to focus in on nothing, but Purdue, really? Listen to Jim Harbaugh. He's sick of talking about this.

I appreciate your question. But, yeah, this is, you know, I think, yeah, really, not going to, not allowed to talk about him. Not talking about him. You know, really want to talk about the game. And the guys are such stalwarts. The comments keep coming about, you know, why they're good, how they're good. I mean, and they're just good. If you know football and you watch our guys play, I've said it before, there's 20, 22, 23 guys that will be playing on Sundays next year.

I truly believe there's another 30, 35, you know, right behind them that will return and others that will be developing. I mean, it's just really good players. And that's, if you know football, I mean, just watch the game, turn on the tape. That's why they're so good. He was talking about taking on Penn State. Distraction, distraction, distraction, right? That's just how it is.

Also, speaking of a distraction, what a hell of a story this is. Everybody knows Pokemon. Shep, you know Pokemon, right?

Of course. Everybody knows Pokemon. I know the little yellow electrical one. Pikachu, I know him. It's still kind of crazy to think, but when you listen to professional athletes and you forget that they have lives outside of whatever the hell it is that they do.

Like, they like things too, okay? And Blake Martinez, who was one of the NFL's leading tacklers for years, whether it be with the Packers and then played for the New York Giants. Last year, the guy quit. He quit in the prime of his life, the prime of his NFL career, and he quit to go out and sell Pokemon cards. Of which he made about $8 million doing, so I don't blame him for saying I'm sick of the NFL.

And he decided to leave. Well, Blake Martinez has been accused of scamming buyers of his Pokemon cards. You know, selling cards that are supposed to be a higher value and then swiping them out for lower ones.

Not shipping the right orders to people who bought the cards. Misleading some of the people who watch his live streams, and now guess what he's doing? Blake Martinez has signed with the Carolina Panthers. We might actually see Blake Martinez playing on Thursday night against the Chicago Bears. Yeah, it's pretty sad. I feel, Chef, I got to talk about that game. Do we have to? No. We don't have to? Oh, we do not.

We don't, but I think we kind of do. Might as well talk about the Canada Football League. The CFL. When do they play? They playing right now?

Oh, I have no idea. We're going to have angry Canadians calling now. Prepare yourselves. People are going to call and tell us about the, I can name, let's, uh oh, here we go.

Warren, Doug. No, no, forget the players. Right. Let's name some of the teams. Oh, Toronto Argonauts? Argonauts.

Right, yeah, that's the big one. Somebody's name, the Calgary, no, Calgary Stampede, that's wrong. I know it's the Grey Cup, I know that. That's what they play for? Yes. We're getting cursed out in Canadian right now. You know that, right? No, I'm just, no, it was actually a compliment to the CFL, if anything, because I was saying I'd rather talk about those teams because at least they are more professional than the bottom dwellers that you were just referring to. The Panthers and the Bears.

They're terrible. We got to see that dude. Bajant might play again. I thought yesterday's game was ugly with the Jets, but I mean, damn, Panthers and the Bears on Thursday Night Football?

It's a hell of a story, and it's never happened before, where an undrafted Division II quarterback was able to get a win in the NFL, but there's a reason why you don't have undrafted Division II quarterbacks playing in the NFL. Well, there's a reason I don't want to see him play. And that's a good reason. Yeah. Yeah. So I don't want to see him.

But I hope that Blake Martinez plays, and I hope they bring up his Pokemon scamming scandal on Amazon. Right. It's crazy. I was going to say on TV, but technically it's not TV. I guess.

I don't know. 855-212-4CBS. 855-212-4CBS. Al is calling from Seattle. What's up, Al? Hey, JR. How are you doing this evening? Good. What's up?

Okay. Longtime listener. This can identify another athlete, well-known athlete. Well, he's not well-known as an athlete, but a well-known person that was an athlete at Tulane University. And he was on the basketball team, and his name is Sylvester Stallone. Rocky?

What? Rocky? Yes.

A lot of people don't know he played D1 basketball, and he played for Tulane University back in the late 60s. I can't remember. Sylvester? Sylvester? I can't recall if he was a starter or not.

He played guard, but he was in the top rotation in that plenty of minutes. You just making stuff up on the radio? No, I'm not, because I was at Washington at the time, and I can't remember if the seasons was 60, 69. See, JR, you're not being punk, because Al's a genuine human being.

He's not trying to pull one over on you. But I hope, yeah. Sylvester Stallone playing basketball at Tulane. Yes, he played for Tulane. Yeah. You gonna break the hard news to him, JR?

I'm just like, what, what are you, you sure about this, man? I played for the University of Washington at the same years, okay? You played against him? I didn't play against him, but we were in the same tournament. You saw him with your own eyes in front of you.

He was nobody's in, I didn't realize it, until after Rocky came out. Are you sure this is not another Sylvester Stallone? No. You mean Tulane in Louisiana? No, Tulane in New Orleans.

New Orleans is in Louisiana? Yes, of course, exactly. All right, Al. And as I said, the only thing I can't remember was if he was a starter or not, but he got minutes. Al, he was neither. He was in the rotation. What's that jump shot look like, Al?

You wouldn't know, would you? You didn't see him? Oh, he was good. He was a good ball handler. I'm sure he was. And he could go to the tournament. Yeah, like a good ball handler.

That's right. Thank you, Al for Seattle. This is the JR Sport Reshow here on CBS Sports Radio.
