This is the Adam Gold Show. I look forward to Wednesdays from 1 to 1.30-ish. At like 1.30-ish Wednesday. I look forward to the next Wednesday because we get to talk college football, a college sports life with my friendship, PattersonCBSSports.com, moderator of the Cover 3 podcast who is wearing a collared shirt again today.
I fear a jacket is not that far away from him. Right? Do we have a CBS Sports HQ hit coming up or did we just do one? 1.40 p.m., we will be breaking down the largest outdoor cocktail party, Florida and Georgia in Jacksonville, a scene unlike any other in college football, a house divided. But they don't want to call it a cocktail party anymore.
No, I think we decided on like the editorial side, don't throw it in a headline, but if you want to mention it offhand. It's fun. It's what it is.
Fine. College football is so beholden. Well, we know, look, I understand the reasons why, just like Tennessee and Kentucky no longer play for a beer barrel. Remember when they used to play for a beer barrel? Now, good reasons why they don't anymore.
But again, it's all about the... I'm sure they drank beer out of an old oaken bucket. Who's that? That's Minnesota, Michigan? Old oaken bucket or Purdue?
Who is it? Well, the Purdue's the keg of nails against Indiana. That's it.
And then we're not changing that to anything else. That's just a keg of nails. We've got Paul, Paul Bunyan Trophy is one of my favorite. The Paul Bunyan Axe, Wisconsin, Michigan, right? But the Paul Bunyan Trophy is Michigan, Michigan State, right? And it's the little man.
Like it is an actual statue of Paul Bunyan, probably about two and a half feet high. Listen, we could do our own podcast on rivalry trophies in college football, including the civil conflict between UConn and UCF. Well, that's going to go away, right? The civil conflict will go away. When Bob Diaco was no longer the head coach at UConn, Scott Frost, UCF had won the last one and they threw it in the closet somewhere and it was done.
One of the great attempts at becoming relevant in the history of college football was the civil conflict. You know what we should do? And I shouldn't, if I told you this, you'll study for it and you'll ace it, but you'd ace it anyway, a quiz, a match, the trophy to the college football rivalry game.
Maybe we'll do that on the show for a listener. See if you can get, see what grades you get. Do you get a passing grade?
Do you get an A, do you get a B, do you get a C, do you get a D? Let's talk about, this is the last weekend to, not really the last weekend to impress the committee. They should have been paying attention from the beginning, but the committee starts spitting out the fake rankings starting on Tuesday. And again, as a public service announcement, and I will do this extensively on Tuesday, don't pay any attention to it.
Don't try to glean any information from it because they don't matter until the last one comes out. Um, but if you had to take a stab at it right now, give me your four in order. Actually, give me your six in order because they always give us five and six. Right now, the, I believe that the college football playoff selection committee, and this is like not with this weekend taken into consideration. Yeah, they're probably going to put Tennessee number one. I think that right now, the college football playoff selection committee, would probably put Georgia number two. Ohio State at three, and Alabama at four, Michigan at five, Clemson at six.
So, Tennessee, Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Michigan, Clemson. Yes, that would be my guess as what they would do. All right. Um, what would you do? I, that was fascinating and it leads me to a thousand other questions, but what would you do?
Wait for the end of the season? Yes, I agree with you. I agree. We shouldn't do this.
And then they, because it was so popular in terms of a television attraction, we started doing it for basketball too. So, do you want to hear what my best, so I do fill out a weekly ballot for the CBS Sports 131. Sure. And like in that ballot, I think that I have Ohio State number one. Right.
Yeah. And look, they do not have the resume, resume wins, that some of those other teams up in the top five have, but I, in my own personal belief of how these teams stack up against each other, I think Ohio State is number one. And I look forward for them to be able to prove it, starting with not just whether they win or lose, but how they look in a difficult road environment at Happy Valley, going up against Penn State this weekend, the Michigan game at the end of the season.
Like those, all of these are going to be important data points to see whether or not I still think that's the case. I have Tennessee number two on my own personal ballot. I've got Georgia number three on my own personal ballot. I've got Clemson at five and I've got Michigan at four. Clemson at five, Michigan at four. All right. And you have Alabama, you have Alabama six? Correct.
All right. I actually have not done it, but Tennessee has the best win, right? Yeah, that's what I think. Tennessee's got the best win. And also, they're all going to be able to point to the LSU victory as being very significant, because I think that LSU can find itself up inside the committee's top 25. Florida, LSU, and Alabama just looks good. And if they add a Kentucky win on top of that this weekend, that's just the kind of, in comparing these undefeated teams to be able to just say that out loud, we've got an undefeated team with wins against Florida, LSU, Alabama, and Kentucky.
Yeah. That is better than anything that the other undefeated teams can say. Who has the second best win? Is it Georgia with a 49 to 3 win over Oregon in the opener? Possibly, I mean, certainly with the way that Oregon has just continued to roll ever since then and how impressive that group has been in improving. I mean, Docker, first year head coach, transfer quarterback, might not be all in sync in the first game of the season. Against a team like Georgia, especially.
Against a team like Georgia in Atlanta. Like, I think the Ducks are the Pac-12's best chance to make the college football playoff. There are plenty of like, but what about USC and the USC brand name arguments, which could be fair. But in terms of, you know, what Oregon has done on paper since that season opener, I think if they finish as a 12 and 1 Pac-12 champion with the only loss being to Georgia and Georgia is an SEC champion, then Oregon's going to have the best resume of anybody from the big 12 or the Pac-12. Chip Patterson is here as he is every Wednesday. Yeah, Tennessee's got the best win.
Georgia defending champs and I mean, I don't think their schedule has been all that great. And I think that's we kind of lose sight over all of this is that and I want to I'm going to play a clip from Joel clad of Fox Sports that I want your take on in a second. But you and I have talked about this a lot over the last probably the last year, maybe longer is that the sports become so top-heavy. I think you and I agree that the SEC is the deepest of the conference is correct.
Correct, right. So there are more good teams more teams that could that could beat even the best teams in that League than there are in any other League now, it's different in two div in the two divisions. I think there's more depth. I think at least until recently anyway in the West and there is in the East, but now you got Georgia and Tennessee. How good is Florida not great and I also do think that I push back and that what I've come to what I've come around on is that SEC is where the most talented players in college football are but you still do have to go play the games right and talented teams can stink teams loaded with four stars and five stars can go out there and not execute. Well, Texas A&M stinks. I mean that's like if you want to just say where where are the most talented players in college football what conference is the toughest to on a weekend week out basis. It is true that for the most part the SEC gives you no breaks that you know the sixth team in the SEC West is still loaded with four stars and five stars and if they've all got it clicking then you're going to be in trouble or at least it's going to be difficult and that's where I've started to say like I don't want to decide everything based on who would win on a neutral field or what the Vegas odds think or what your power rating is because those power ratings are determined by the talent on the roster mostly and we have seen that talent especially when it's 18 to 22 year olds come out and stink and so I would like to also take you know your resume and you know how you play how you look how you execute into consideration as well.
All right, let's let me let you listen to what you may have already heard this but I'll play it again and people just tuning in because I played it before here's Joel Klatt from Fox and this is about his lack of confidence. I'll use juicy that phrase in the Clemson Tigers as a legitimate playoff contender. There's no other team in the country with an easier path to the playoff than Clemson and it's been this way for quite some time quite some time. This is a team that has gotten the benefit of an eight game conference schedule not nine and a ridiculously weak one team conference, you know, not I mean even Oklahoma had had a tougher gauntlet through the big 12 to go to the playoff in some of those years than what Clemson has had throughout their 10 year Dabo's tenure in these playoff years and that's not to tell you to say like they didn't have good teams. No, of course they like they had great teams.
They won national championships. So I'm not arguing that they shouldn't go. I'm just saying like boy, do we really think that they're any good? I don't think so and and we're not going to know until the playoff and they're going to be there by the way.
So we're really playing for three spots. All right. Thoughts on what Joe clad had to say. I think there's some truth there. Oh, yeah, I think he's forgetting a couple of things, but we'll get to that in a second. Yeah, I think he's right. He's wrong. He's right.
He's wrong and he's wrong. That's as I went through listening to what he was just saying is right that Clemson has the easiest path to the college football playoff from where we sit right now. All of Clemson's toughest games are in the rearview right now and they've won them.
They still have a zero in the lost column. They have four games remaining and the toughest opponent that's left is South Carolina. Yes, and all the games outside of a trip to Notre Dame against a woeful Fighting Irish team are going to be in Death Valley. Again, it is the easiest path for all the teams in the country between where we sit right now and the college football playoff. Clemson has the easiest path. You're a hundred percent right about that Joel clap. You are wrong that it's been that way for quite some time.
Thank you. In 2016 a Heisman Trophy winner named Lamar Jackson came four yards away from knocking off the Tigers in Death Valley in a game that I was at and considered, you know, one of the better regular season college football environments and college football games. I've ever been a part of the back and forth between Deshaun Watson a Heisman Trophy finalist and Lamar Jackson a Heisman Trophy winner that Louisville team did not lose another ACC game. They were technically co-Atlantic division champions after Clemson lost at pit against pit at home later in the season. But you know who goes to the Commerce Championship game is the Clemson Tigers.
They go on to not only make the college football playoff but win the National Championship. I would also take it back to North Carolina pushing Clemson to an onside kick all the way back in 2015. I would look at the Notre Dame season of 2020 when they were a full conference member and beat Clemson in the regular season though Clemson won the rematch in Charlotte Handley. Listen, it is not always been that 2019 year where Clemson rolled everybody and then put 60 burger on the board against Virginia in the ACC Championship game. There have been seasons where Clemson has been truly tested. So Joel, you are wrong about the fact that it has been that way for quite some time. I do think he's right that Oklahoma has had some more resistance.
Absolutely. And I think that you are benefiting from a nine-game conference schedule versus an eight-game conference schedule. My old pushback would be that in several of these years we have seen Clemson play an SEC opponent sometimes on the other team's home stadium as part of a home and home. You know Clemson in the Dabo Sweeney era has done a home and home with Georgia. Clemson in the Dabo Sweeney era has done a home and home with Texas A&M. Clemson has been in some of these big-time games including against the eventual National Champion Georgia Bulldogs just this last season. So like yes, Oklahoma has had some more difficult paths and then I do think that he's wrong that we don't know if Clemson is any good because I think that Clemson is very good.
I do too. I don't think Clemson is National Championship good, but that wasn't the question. The question is are they playoff good and they absolutely are.
And here's the thing that I also push back on because it's pretty transparent. This is Joel Klatt slamming the Atlantic Coast Conference when it's going to sound like a dirty little secret, but you alluded to it already Chip is that how many games this year when we look back at Ohio State schedule are really loseable games for them. So far I just mentioned that Notre Dame is like woeful and Notre Dame is going to end up being like the fourth toughest game that they had to play this season. So in terms of how good the teams are that they have played Yeah, Notre Dame isn't I think Penn State's good, but I've seen Penn State and I'm not I don't know that Penn State's all that but this will be the toughest game. I think that Ohio State has played so far this year this this Saturday then the Michigan game and I think we're done. Yeah Northwestern Indiana Maryland. That's what's left. Maybe the Maryland game is at Maryland.
Maybe that'll be somewhat of a challenge, but I don't think so. So what are we talking about Joel? So if you're going to take that shot at Clemson who by the way plays in the more difficult half of the ACC if we're going to say but they don't play a coastal schedule. Well, it's not like they play Virginia Tech of Virginia all year. So they're playing the more difficult side Florida State's not easy. I don't think Florida State's great, but that's not an easy game. So I just think that it's just very convenient to take a shot at the ACC because frankly the ACC has kind of earned that reputation.
But I just think Joel that was just low-hanging fruit for Joel talking to the college football masses. Whereas we got a team that you say is the number one team in the country and I don't disagree with that and they really haven't played anybody yet. I think Michigan we actually tackled this on the cover three podcast. The Michigan fan said Michigan has gotten a lot of heat for its strength to schedule. Why has an Ohio State right and our response was that's fair.
It's a hundred percent fair. It is fair that Michigan came into the season knowing that it was going to be playing three of the 10 worst teams at the FPS level, right? Like when you go up against Colorado State, Hawaii and Yukon like you are asking to be able to see if your fourth quarterback can throw 10 times in a game. Like you are just setting up the most depth building right just routine going through the motion scrimmages and look it allowed Jim Harbaugh to take his quarterback competition into the season. Eventually JJ McCarthy does end up winning that job even though I think they're a much better running team than anything they do at the quarterback position right now and Ohio State coming into the season thought it had a real challenge with Notre Dame coming to town and it's not proven to be that but Ohio State and Michigan neither both of them look excellent. Neither of them has a great strength to schedule argument. I think that a loss for either one of them would endanger their college football playoff hopes in the same way that a loss for the Clemson Tigers would endanger Clemson's college football playoff hopes.
Yeah. Well, I think there's a practical reason why a loss for either Ohio State or Michigan which would likely come against the other would endanger their playoff chances is because they would lose the division and they wouldn't win the Big Ten championship when we come back. We can go through some games for on this week's schedule because even though there aren't that many games that impact clear playoff teams.
There are games that indirectly do and we'll talk about that with Chip Patterson next. Thank you for calling Navy Federal Credit Union. How can I help you? Hi, if I'm in the Army not in the Navy, am I still eligible for membership? Yes, you are. What about my sister in the Air Force?
Her too. And my dad's a Marine. We serve all branches of the military veterans and their families. My dog is a retired military working dog. I'll see what I can do. Find out if you're eligible at NavyFederal.org Navy Federal Credit Union.
Our members are the mission insured by NCUA. Not only should you check out the Sunday morning cover three which is a recap of everything that happened on Saturday. Well, at least everything that happened before they they went to sleep, but you get the Upon Further Review on Monday, which is actually my favorite one, but they're all my favorite. Always check it out and I love the crew. I'm a big, you know me.
I'm a big Danny Kanell fan. Yeah, I appreciate your kind words. We actually had a meeting this week and the Upon Further Review shows have gotten some love. So they're great. You echo the cover three fan base that we not only hit you on Saturday night with our in the moment, but taking a little bit of time to digest things kind of helps too.
So yeah, two doses of it every single week. I appreciate you spending time on Will Healey at Charlotte getting God. I actually think it started happening last year. They lost six of their last eight and they just kind of fell off the cliff. Look, I don't put any stock into anything that happened during the pandemic year. Nothing zero. I don't care if you were good. If you're good, great, but bad. I don't care.
I'm just I can't. What that year was so bad. Forget about for college athletes. It was bad for humans in every way shape and form.
It was bad for humans. So did you know that you remove the 2020 season from Jimbo Fisher's Texas A&M profile? He is not even an inflation era Kevin someone. He is worse than Kevin someone if you remove the 2020 season from the Jimbo Fisher Texas A&M profile.
I well, I wasn't aware of those numbers. I just know that we're starting to hear like is Jimbo really the guy here? It's kind of hard to believe that we are in this place and it's starting that they suspended three three of their coveted freshmen from this, you know, high-profile highly expensive class of incoming freshmen based on the alleged rumors and reports right and look and you had the four players who were from the freshman class suspended earlier this season as well and two of them have been suspended in both incidents and this is but there is a lot of conversation right now.
I was like, hey, wait a second. DJ Durkin's on that staff. Steve Adazio is on that staff. James Coley, Damien Craig weird.
They've got a culture problem. Yeah, the DJ Durkin thing. I'm kind of amazed. I maybe I shouldn't be and I'm kind of amazed that he's a coach. He's look if DJ Durkin wants to go coach professionals. I got no problem with it, but I have a little bit of no. I have a lot of a problem with somebody named like DJ Durkin still being able to coach college kids.
I just I just have a huge problem with it, but I don't know. Maybe there's no room for that mindset in college football. Let's let's keep it going. This is trap week. We got eight ranked teams facing unranked opponents all on the road.
Six of those games have single-digit spreads. It is trap. All right, but it's it's also trap week for a home team.
Oh Carolina. No, Tennessee. It is trap week for Tennessee for Carolina too, but I think it's trap week for Tennessee because they understand that it's all on next week for them against Georgia and Kentucky's good now, I don't think Kentucky is great, but I think Kentucky is good and they've especially under was it Mark Stoops have had a very good defense. Can they score with Tennessee? No, their fundamental issue is that they have an offensive line that is regressed. They've lost players to the NFL. They've lost their offensive line coach to Alabama and that group has been pushed around and one thing that we saw from Tennessee already is that that group does all right against the run and they do all right create and Havoc plays. So while Kentucky does have a future NFL draft pick and Will Levis, I think the offensive line play the lack of real difference makers at wide receiver some of the injuries they've taken at that position as well.
This is not a particularly impressive group. I mean they they lost to South Carolina. They lost to Ole Miss that there's not really a super impressive victory beating Mississippi State is fine.
But even then it was not one that said can you score? They won 27 to 17 against Mississippi State. They won 26 to 16 against Florida and I think Tennessee has proven that until they move the hash marks on the college football field and as long as Hendon Hooker is the starting quarterback, they're going to put up 40 they're going to run out of the tunnel and they're going to put 40 on the board and I just don't think that Kentucky is the type of team that can do that. Yeah, I think the only way this game is close is if Kentucky can figure out how to score enough.
And as you said, and I'm with Dennis and I were talking to before the before the show. I think this is a 21-point game. I think it's a three touchdown spread.
I think the spread is 12 and a half. I would I like Tennessee given 12 and a half to Kentucky, but George is next week and I've had has to have some impact. No, no, okay.
Good. It'll be interesting if it does I've gone to look do the look-ahead as much on the coaching staff as on the players and sort of where their heads are at where the coaching staff might be already trying to you know, okay, so like we don't want to do that yet or we want to make sure that we can get out of here with like as much vanilla stuff as possible. We want to be able to save all of our good stuff for next week and I just think that the offense is so simple already. I mean the it is so so simple and so explosive and productive and this law again as long as Hendon Hooker who is in total rhythm in sync with this wide receivers right now as long as he is the starting quarterback and healthy then Tennessee is going to put up 40 points and I think Josh Hypell knows that all right. Let's you you were you were going to talk about North Carolina hosting pit.
What's the significance of this game for you? If North Carolina wins this game, I think they have pretty much put a wrap on the Coastal Division because the toughest games left on the schedule are against Atlantic Division foes in Wake Forest and NC State right doesn't matter what your conference record is if you're undefeated against all your division foes, you're going to Charlotte as the Coastal Division champion. So I think that it is massive for North Carolina in a spot that looks just like Notre Dame just like the Notre Dame game North Carolina's defense is coming off a by and just like the Notre Dame game. They are going up against an offense that is going to try to use a brutal physicality and an emphasis on the run game to try and bull you over and move you off the ball. That North Carolina defense plays off a by against a physical rushing attack the way it did against Notre Dame. Pitt's going to go into Kenan Stadium and it's going to beat him because Izzy Abinaconda is going to run the ball 35 times in this game and if you allow him he's I love the way he runs because he does have the physicality, but he's got great explosion as well. I mean, this is going to be a challenge on a defensive line that lost Rava Hasek the veteran defensive tackle who's been so important to what they do.
This is when all those, you know, big recruiting wins when when Mac Brown and that staff when they get to celebrate the four stars and the five stars along the defensive line that they've got on National Signing Day. Those players have got to show up against this pit offensive line and this pit rushing attack. Cause Keaton Slovis ain't good. If you force Keaton Slovis to beat you then North Carolina should win this game handily.
Keaton Slovis alone cannot play keep up with Drake May the difference between these two quarterbacks is not even miles like it is time zones between Drake May and Keaton Slovis, but Izzy Abinaconda could go out there and have five touchdowns by himself as he already had six touchdowns by himself earlier this year. So that's where the whole game comes down to that's why North Carolina is in a trap spot as well. All right, two quick two other games real quick before I let you go and I know you got to be on CBS Sports HQ in eight minutes. I think the Notre Dame Syracuse game is very big for Clemson and I think it's big for this reason. I think they need Syracuse to win it. I think Clemson could benefit from Syracuse being a 10 win Syracuse team as opposed to an eight or a nine win Syracuse team and that's why I think the Orange have to win this although Clemson's got to be undefeated anyway, but am I overthinking this? I think you were trying to advance to the end of the season Syracuse has potentially more losses. I think it's important because if Syracuse takes this loss to Notre Dame, then we bounce them from the picture entirely completely winning Notre Dame at least leaves them in the picture for the top 25 when we all gather around our computers to get angry on Tuesday night Syracuse with that win probably is in the top 25 and then when we talk about the Clemson Tigers after that release on Tuesday night from the selection committee, the Clemson Tigers are able to boast wins against Wake Forest win against the Syracuse Orange who would both at that point. I imagine be top 20 teams will see what happens with NC State against Virginia Tech and sort of where that would fit in as well. So the Syracuse win to me is not necessarily about what you are at the end of the year, but as for Clemson helping them right now because otherwise we're going to start to see those teams that Clemson has beaten the toughest opponents on Clemson schedule, they're going to get bounced from that sort of top 25 picture and a lot of times at this point in the year, especially when you're an ACC team when you get bounced from the picture, you're forgotten you are forgotten and finally very quickly wake wake at Louisville the wakey league's game. I don't think wakes going to be in trouble here, but it was nice to see Louisville look like a real football team last week. I thought their offense was bad last week. Yeah, Malik Cunningham was a little bit banged up, but that's a that was a 24 to 10 win with two interceptions and a scoop and score like the result, right? I mean, yeah, it got me.
That's very soccer term, right? I like a good result. You found a way to get it done. It got me a Sunday at Page Farms, you know, to go do the pumpkin patch with my family avoided any emergency pods for Scott Satterfield, but you know, I kind of think Sam Hartman is cooking right now. He is in total sync and I think that wake is going to go out there and it's gonna be challenging for the defense. This will be like one of the games that Scott Satterfield is trying to like pull out all of his best stuff to try and get a top 25 top 10 win for the program, but I just don't think that they're gonna be able to score enough to keep up high scoring wake wins by at least a touchdown chip Patterson.
You'll see him on CBS Sports HQ in six minutes. Thank you very much. My friend sounds good. Y'all be well. Thank you for calling Navy Federal Credit Union.
How can I help you? Hi, if I'm in the Army, not in the Navy, am I still eligible for membership? Yes, you are. What about my sister in the Air Force?
Her too. And my dad's a Marine. We serve all branches of the military veterans and their families. My dog is a retired military working dog. I'll see what I can do. Find out if you're eligible at Navy federal.org Navy Federal Credit Union.
Our members are the mission insured by NCAA. All right, it's halftime goes so fast. All right, I'm trying to remember how to do this. I don't do it too often anymore. I gotta tell you like no offense.
Victoria finds stuff that blow me away really the last couple like yesterday. She found a story where I think it was in the UK. You can I don't know where it was.
I think it was in the UK. Okay, you can pay. There's a company that will bury you alive and then exhume you because they think that it's good for your essentially good for your soul to to feel that you have been lost. Oh, it's a very interesting story $57,000 by the way to do that to just be buried alive, but then you're not dead. Okay, I'm gonna say like right that okay, you're not dead and then bring you up but but like there's a whole there's a funeral involved. Think about it wouldn't like to know wouldn't you like to know who comes to your funeral? Huh?
Seriously, I don't know. I said, I don't think I want to know the things on I don't think I want to know in theory. I think it would be good. But then you feel if you don't get the answer you want like I would like to think that over over 15 people would come to my funeral. Yeah, I'd like to think that well for me either everyone's going to show up or no one shows up.
There's no middle ground middle ground for me. I don't I don't know I'm downplaying it. It's a morbid thing to think it is. It's good. Well, it's a great story. Anyway, good luck. Okay.
Well, I have something a little bit more enlightening. I guess you can say for people out there Stadium Series tickets go on sale tomorrow for the general public. This is Keynes hosting the capitals at Carter Finley Stadium in February really because I know a lot of people that were season ticket holders had access early. They released it in tears. I know members of the Junior Keynes their families had ticket access as well, but general public tickets go on sale tomorrow through Ticketmaster.
I think they start at like 215 whatever it is something whatever it is. It's an event that may never come here again. But I'll I will make this statement.
It's going to be such a big deal and a great time. Oh, yeah that it will come back. Yeah, but it probably won't be for another 10 years. Maybe maybe a little less. Maybe yeah, maybe a little less. So 2024 Adams calling it right now. No 24 but I mean I can see it in 30.
Yeah, I didn't see it in 37 years. Okay, that makes sense. Yeah, I could see that as well. Well, here's the thing the Keynes sold out because all their season ticket members they I think they NHL a lot of them roughly around 18,000 tickets.
Yeah, actually Keynes blew through that in moments. Basically, yes, and then the NHL gave them more up. So total about 30,000 tickets that the Keynes have received from the NHL to again exclusively sell to season ticket members in other team personnel. They went through that 30,000 tickets like it was nothing.
So Carter Finley seats what I don't know how many seats are going to be available specifically for this game. Oh, it's going to be in the neighborhood of 55 55 60,000. So I have no doubt that this place will will sell just about every ticket that they can no doubt at all. No, it especially that's going to be sold out. Yeah, you say tickets go on sale tomorrow. Yeah, General that's when it's going to be sold out.
Yes, tomorrow. You know done keep in mind as well that they're Virginia lot of Washington Capitals fans in Virginia that will travel down to this game hundred percent hundred percent. It's going to be a fantastic event. I cannot wait and by the way when they announced it would be a stadium series game, which was three years ago.
Yeah, when they announced it. I told you who the opponent would be and people yelled at me because it was Washington because it was not going to be Washington like nah, it's going to be Washington. Yeah, Pittsburgh has played in plenty of these and Pittsburgh would have been the other option always remember that Florida and Tampa were slated to play against each other next year. Yeah, so it wasn't going to be either of them. It was always going to be either Pittsburgh or Washington but Pittsburgh has played in so many of these and it was pretty simple to understand it was going to be the cap and I know Nashville's had one recently too.
Yeah, I knew they weren't going to do them correct. So yeah at all and it was always going to be a rival. Yeah, Nashville's not a rival.
No, it was always going to be a rival because they didn't believe that the Hurricanes would sell this out on their own and I will say this the Hurricanes could play Halifax and it would have sold out bring them on bring on Halifax exactly come get these hands. All right. Next thing I have for you because I'm here. I have to talk about these things big news in terms of the DC Entertainment World DC Comics movies all those things James Gunn who's been the director of the Guardians of the Galaxy for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He's also done some other projects with DC Films including Suicide Squad as well as the Peacemaker series. He's actually going to be DC's lead creative when it comes to film television and animation. He's going to do that alongside Aquaman and Shazam producer Peter Safran who basically they're going to service co-chairs and co-CEO's of DC Studios, which is replacing DC Films. This is very important because a lot of people like myself want to see I don't know some sort of plan when it comes to DC Comics and what they want to do with their entertainment universe in terms of again film and television plan.
Yeah, we do actually does it matter? Yes, like if you just put a cape on a rat and call it a DC Comics or a Marvel Cinematic Universe. We did just have super pets DC super pets that just get people are going to go. Well, okay, they are you. Yeah are going to go if they put a cape on a radish. No, I don't like rat. You will change on a butternut squash if they put a cape on a butternut squash and put a logo on it.
You go sound seasonal. But here's the here's the thing is that there's a lot of frustration amongst casual fans that there's just no continuity and honestly a lot of the movies had not been that good. Like Wonder Woman 1984 was not a good movie. The Justice League movie the even the pre-snider release was not a good movie. So it just they put out bad stuff.
Sure. Simple as that. They put up bad some of the Star Wars movies were bad. Yeah, I know right. And then people are mad about that too.
Yeah, I have a light. I have a right to be excited that these people are taking over. They still go. Yeah, but not not but here's the thing. It's not it's like for us like yeah, the P1 listeners are so going to listen but it's the casual fans.
Those are where that's where they're losing. Oh, I see. So yeah, the having a plan is a good thing. Okay, which leads us into speaking of people and capes the Batman 2 because of all this might not hit theaters probably until 2025. What do you mean the Batman 2 the second? There's the the Batman. Oh, the bat. The Batman. That's different than Batman.
Yes, it is. Can I have I saw bond? I saw. Well, I have my thoughts on James Bond Batman with Michael Keaton is Batman.
Okay, right. I saw that one and he was Michael. He was Batman that was either Batman. He was he Batman in the second one. He was he was the first to first to I saw those two I have seen zero movies with Batman since the second one.
Okay. Well, so for some of those awful movies, but there are some great ones out there. I'm sure the Dark Knight trilogy is fantastic.
I'm sure it is and you should definitely go check it out. But I was a I was a fan of Batman the television show the Saturday West with Adam West but was absolutely campy over the top similar to my love of James Bond where Sean Connery as James Bond look Daniel Craig. The movies change it was sort of like how Mission Impossible changed Mission Impossible became entirely a vehicle for Tom Cruise to do stunts. Yeah, right. But the show what the movies were based on was more suspenseful and intriguing.
Yeah. James Bond now is basically well, no longer Daniel Craig with his shirt off. Right basically Daniel Craig with his shirt off. I mean we saw the Bond girls but Daniel Craig with his shirt off and stunts. That's all Bond became like Daniel Craig fighting with a guy on top of a train going at a hundred miles an hour and somehow both of them not dying. So it has become yeah, which I'm not against. I've watched them all. I'm okay with it. Yeah, it's fun.
