We miss college football. Drops back, pressure from the edges. He throws near sideline and it's intercepted, intercepted. Keely Ringo at the 21, off he goes, 40, 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, near sideline. Breaks attack on 20, 15, 10, 5, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, Georgia. Let the celebration begin. We can't wait for the 2022 season. Rice gets it, backpedals onto the end zone, loads up, looks long.
He's not going behind the defense, Jamison makes the grab at midfield. Down the right sideline, 40, 30, 20, 10, 5, touchdown Alabama, 94 yards. And we're counting down the days to kick off. Are we there yet? No. Are we there yet? I said no. Are we there yet?
What's wrong with your ears? Here is your college football fix, only on the Zach Gelb Show. We're almost there to the start of the college football season, week zero this weekend and a full slate of games next weekend. We're coming to you live on the Zach Gelb Show from the Rocket Mortgage Studios.
Whether you're looking to purchase a new home or refinance yours, Rocket Mortgage can help you get there for home-owned solutions that fit your life. Rocket can, very excited for this upcoming season of South Carolina football. The Gamecocks last year had a big victory up against Florida, 40 to 17. They capped off their season with a bowl victory up against UNC. Now they have Spencer Rattler, and for Shane Beamer, it will be his second year as the head coach at South Carolina, and the HC joins us right now. Coach, appreciate the time, how are you? I'm doing great, appreciate you having me on.
Well thanks so much. I want to start things off with the video that I saw circulate last week, and I'm always a sucker for this type of content when a coach just surprises a kid and rewards him with the scholarship. Take me through what it meant to give out a scholarship to Peyton Mangrum.
Yeah, no, it was pretty awesome. Peyton's somebody that's very deserving. Somebody that, you know, last year I told him that the first opportunity I could to get him on I wanted to because he had earned it, and he's a guy that's played meaningful snaps for us on special teams and on offense, and works really hard, and just goes about and does his job on and off the field every single day. So anytime you can reward somebody with a scholarship, it's a great feeling, and you can tell by the reaction of his teammates, they felt the same way as I did. And I loved how casually you just dropped the news on everyone, coach.
A couple of the players told me that they thought it was very smooth the way that I did it as well, so practiced it a little bit, and thought it would be a cool way of doing that in a team meeting, watching some clips from practice previously. Shane Beamer here with us, the head coach at South Carolina. So you've been around football your entire life. We know about your career, seven and six a year ago. When you look back at last season, what did you learn about yourself with the full year now under your belt at South Carolina as the head coach?
You know, plenty. You know, you're never, even growing up the son of a head coach, you're never truly prepared for what this job entails until you're actually behind the desk and actually doing it. So every day you're learning something about the job, and still am to this day. I mean, every day something that you don't expect comes up, but you know, certainly realized it throughout the year that you better have some great people around you, and I do with the players and coaches and staff here as well. And then, you know, I just was able to take so much from my dad and the other coaches that I've worked for, but you know, one thing from my dad that I learned is just the consistency that you have to have, you know, day in, day out in this position, because all eyes are on you and you don't want to get too high or too low after a win, after a loss, just come right back to work every single day and get better.
And I knew that, but you know, certainly being in this role, you realize that even more. And you're feeling the heightened awareness now, because a lot of people are talking about the successful season you had a year ago and no one's going to be sleeping on you this year. I don't mean that in a negative way, but it really speaks to what you're able to do in year one.
Yeah, for sure. Proud of what the 2021 team did and a lot of the adversity we overcame from an injury standpoint to still find a way to go from two wins and to seven wins in our first year and win a bowl game against North Carolina and beat Auburn and Florida down the stretch was a great way to finish. There is a lot of excitement about South Carolina football right now, and there are higher expectations and we embrace those and are excited about that.
I want to coach at a place that has high expectations like we do, but also we realize the work that's in front of us. We were an inconsistent team last year. We have to be more consistent. We have to play and coach better overall than what we did last season. And you also realize that we play in the toughest conference in the country and all these opponents of ours, they're not slowing down either. So we've got to continue to really work hard to put ourselves in position to be in the conversation with those guys and have success on the field week in, week out like we want to. Talking to Shane Beamer right now, the head football coach of South Carolina, turning a program around doesn't happen overnight, even though you guys took a massive step in year number one, everyone talks about culture and we want the culture to be this.
What do you want your culture to be like at South Carolina? Well, to me, that's when you talk about that word to me, it's to me, it's the environment. And when somebody walks in our facility, you know, what does it feel like?
And do they do they feel a certain way and people have told me they do. And to me, that's one, you walk in this building and you feel a lot of joy and love for each other, the people in our football facility, day in, day out, a place that God's want to be at and want to be a part of, for sure. And then, you know, I think if you ask any one of our players, they would tell you this is a place where they know that as players, that we as coaches really care about them deeply.
And everybody talks about that, but it's real here, you know, without a doubt. And just that, the way we treat people, the energy we want to have in this building, the love for each other we want to have in this building, it all starts with that. And it speaks to what you guys are doing with the way that you guys perform last year, because now there's so much change in college football for good and then also for some bad, but earning the trust of young kids, of teenagers and young adults is not easy.
And it looks like your program did that pretty quickly. Yeah, you know, for us, it's just trying to be honest with these guys and be consistent. And there's highs and lows in this profession, being a college football player, there's highs and lows.
And, you know, you just try and weather the storm and throughout the good, throughout the bad, you just constantly continue to treat people the right way, continue to be honest with people, continue to hold them accountable and just be consistent. And that's what we did last season. I think our players, you know, appreciate that, and it is a different time with transfer portal and whatnot. But with us, we just try and make this a program that people want to be a part of, that, you know, we work really hard and it's really, it's not easy being a football player here at South Carolina, but there's a lot of joy and love that goes into it as well that the guys want to be here and be a part of. This past offseason, through training camp, and you guys got to open up next weekend, Saturday night, going up against Georgia State, just what did you sense from your kids this entire offseason when you look and the work that you guys put in? Without a doubt, the desire to be better than what we were last year, you know, coming from not going to a bowl game for two years and then all of a sudden we go to a bowl game last year, it would have been easy for a lot of guys to, you know, forget the work that went into getting bowl eligible, the work that went into winning a bowl game, and get used to the people that are patting them on the back, telling them what a great job they did last season and all that, and I have not seen that from our guys, I've seen a group that has worked really, really hard, done everything that we've asked, a group that loves to practice, loves to work, loves to compete, and has a strong, strong desire to get better, and it's been that way since January and it's continued through preseason practice here in August.
Talking to Shane Beamer, I have a lot of respect for Mark Stoops and what he's been able to do at Kentucky, but even when you're a school like Kentucky, people try to put limitations on them, on what they could do in football, just because the nature of the bees playing in the best conference in college football. People when they talk about your program, they go, wow, you're number one, we'll see what steps they take and you're number two, but what do you say to people that try to put limitations on your program just because of the respect that people have around the country for what Alabama and Georgia have been able to do the last few years? Well, it's an unbelievably tough conference to be a part of, but we embrace that and love that.
As competitors, you want to compete against the best. My response would be that we've shown here at South Carolina that we can win at the highest level. My last year here as an assistant coach, we played in the SEC Championship game over in Atlanta against Auburn, and then after that season, Coach Spurrier in South Carolina had three straight seasons of top ten finishes, if I'm not mistaken, so we've won at a high, high level.
We've won national championships here in other sports, baseball, women's basketball, for example, and there's no reason why you can't do it in football. Now, you've got to be the very best in your conference, for sure, to even have a chance to do that, but we have the resources that we need to do that. We've got a recruiting base. We've got great academics here. We've got a great city that we live in. We've got great facilities. We've got great people in this program, and we're just trying to continue to elevate this program a little bit each day, and continue to build this program to where we all want it to be.
Shane Beamer here with us. You mentioned Coach Steve Spurrier. When you got a chance to work with him, what was the lesson or two that you learned from him? I know that you could probably sit here and talk for 30 minutes, but give me a few things about Coach.
Yeah, that could be a whole show. I think the biggest thing is, one, you better have great players, and we had some great players during that time as well, but for me, with Coach Spurrier, it was realizing how each team will take on, in so many ways, the personality of their head coach, and I truly believe that a lot of the success that we had here at South Carolina was just because of the confidence, swagger, whatever you want to call it, that Coach Spurrier carried himself with. And I saw that, that our players fed off that and inspired confidence in them to go out and play loose and play free and play the game the right way, and we were able to have a lot of success doing that. We all know what your father was able to accomplish at Virginia Tech, and it was a really great run for your dad at that university. When you look back at your time playing for him and then coaching with him, just what are the memories that come back to mind, and what does that relationship mean all these years later? No, it's truly blessed to have been able to play and coach for him, and it had some really, really special moments. I mean, my senior year of college, my last year playing for him was 1999, and we went undefeated and played Florida State for the national championship, so what a storybook finish to my time as a player at Tech and playing for my dad to be able to go undefeated and be a part of the best season in Virginia Tech's history now, the way the story ended was not what we wanted losing in that national championship game, and that still hurts to this day, but what a magical season that was to be a part of and to share it with my dad.
And then really just the time, my first year when I went back with him as an assistant coach at Virginia Tech, we played in the ACC championship game, we played in the Sugar Bowl, and that was awesome, and then really for me, it was just the opportunity to be with him during his last season as a coach, and when I went back to Virginia Tech, I didn't know if I'd be there for a year, two years, three years, but I ended up being there five years as an assistant coach with him, and so thankful that I was because it allowed me to be a part of the 2015 season, which was his last year as a coach, and go out with him, if you will, winning the Independence Bowl that season and his last college game as a coach, I wouldn't have had it any other way being with him on that day. Wrapping up with Shane Beamer, the head football coach at South Carolina, you've been before working with your quarterback, your new quarterback, Spencer Attler, back to your days and time at Oklahoma. What are South Carolina fans getting in Spencer Attler? A guy that's very hungry, a guy that loves to work, a guy that has come in here and done a great job trying to acclimate himself to our program and our football team and working to be a great leader, but just a guy that's excited for a fresh start, that is a really, really good quarterback. He's a guy that you know this, he hasn't lost a game as a starting quarterback since September of 2020, and he's done some really, really great things and excited that he's here with us right now and excited to be connected with him again. We've had him on about two months ago, and I was very impressed with him, because we know he has all the physical tools, coach, but you just wonder how a player responds mentally when you go through getting benched after being a projected first round pick, a projected Heisman finalist before last season started.
Being around Tim, just what has he shown you mentally, trying to move on from that? Yeah, no, he's, you know, whatever happened in the past, I think he knows it's in the past, and he's moved on, and it's a fresh start for him, and what we're doing offensively is a different system than what he was used to at Oklahoma, so he's working really hard to learn that and, you know, be the very best player that he can be here at Carolina, and certainly he had an experience at Oklahoma where he accomplished a lot during his time there, and I know he's proud of that, and I know he's eager to get out there on the field with us this season and keep this thing going. Last thing I want to ask you, Coach Shane Beamer, just throughout this summer, have you sensed a little extra something from a player or two that you just want to highlight right now that we should be paying attention to on the offensive and defensive side of the ball?
Not really, and I know it's coach speak, but I really just like this group, and I think I could name multiple guys on that side of the ball, and we've got a bunch of guys, newcomers that have come in, transfers, freshmen that we're excited about, we've got some returning players that have really improved since the end of last season that we're excited about, and, you know, the depth and the competition at every position right now to me is better than what it was last year, and as a coach, that's exciting. Well, Coach, we appreciate the time. Thanks so much. Good luck coming up next weekend against Georgia State.
Thanks a lot. Appreciate you having me on. There's Shane Beamer, the head football coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks. It is the Zach Gelb Show on CBS Sports Radio.
We'll take a time out, and we'll come on back after these short messages. You're listening to the Zach Gelb Show. It is Zach Gelb Show on CBS Sports Radio.
You can always follow us on Twitter and Instagram, at Zach Gelb, Z-A-C-H-G-E-L-B, and our network accounts, at CBS Sports Radio. Jay Gruden, John Gruden's brother, joined us about an hour 20 ago, and we had to, of course, ask him about the report from this past weekend via Dana White, that Dana White once was trying to get Tom Brady and the Gronker, Rob Gronkowski, to Las Vegas, where he owns a luxury box inside the Raiders' stadium. And it was John Gruden, Jay's brother, who put the kibosh on Brady and Gronk going to Las Vegas. This is what Jay Gruden had to say about that report.
I saw Dana White had a big news item this weekend. He claims your brother blew up the deal that prevented Brady and Gronk from being a Raider. Was that the first time you heard that story? Oh, yeah.
That's the first time. There's a lot of stories when you're out for a year or two, whether it's two or not. I know John had a great relationship with Derek Carr, and Derek Carr's a great quarterback. So whatever the story is, I think John had a lot of loyalty to Derek, and Derek had a lot of loyalty to John, and they were going to have some success if what happened didn't happen because they have a very good offense now coming back as well.
Still, what they have on offense, they're very dangerous as well. So reason for everything, I think Tom Brady is probably better off going to Tampa Bay, and I know Derek Carr is happy still being a Raider. If you were the head coach of the Raiders, would you have made the same decision? Be loyal to Carr and not bring in the GOAT to Tom Brady?
I don't know. Tom Brady's pretty good. He is the GOAT. So if you have a chance to get him, and if I didn't like Gronk, but they already had Darren Waller.
I mean, there's only one ball. So I think in the contract situation, Derek Carr's still a young quarterback. He's very smart. He handles the offense very well. No Tom Brady. I'm not saying that at all, but you surround Derek Carr with some great players like he is going to have this year, you'll see a different Derek Carr again. He's very effective, but it'd be hard for me to ever turn down Tom Brady.
He's my favorite all-time quarterback to watch on film, and if I would have had a chance to get him, I would have got him, but that's just me. Do you and your brother talk about this when this story comes out? Like he is your brother. You call him up and say, hey, is this true? No, I haven't talked to him yet. He's down in Florida playing golf.
I didn't bring it up. He's a little salty right now. He doesn't like all these rumors floating around. I don't know if it's true or not, but I'll get a hold of him and find the scoop. But you know, I think the decision made to keep Derek, I don't think that was a bad one.
I think Darren Waller and Derek and the development Hunter Ephraim made with him before he left was pretty fantastic. I threw questions off this, Hickey. Now we've heard back-to-back days. Lincoln Kennedy, who played for John Gruden, worked for the team, now is the team analyst on the radio, and is the Raiders legend that he thinks Gruden would turn down Brady because of the loyalty to Carr, and he's very loyal to his quarterbacks. That's what Lincoln Kennedy said. Now today, Jay Gruden, John's brother on this show, as you just heard, talked about the loyalty that Derek Carr, that his brother has for Derek Carr than Derek Carr has for his brother. Is loyalty why this happened here? The loyalty to Derek Carr, when a lot of us in the media, when John Gruden was there, which is all we did was speculate, when John Gruden would give Derek Carr the boot and kick him to the curb. No, I don't think loyalty is a driving factor. Money? No. Because it's only $25 million a year?
I think it's control. Which Lincoln Kennedy did bring up yesterday. You see BA no longer there, you also saw pretty much Arians, who's a great offense of mine, just let Brady run that offense. He doesn't know if John Gruden would have done that. Yeah, John Gruden does not seem like the guy that would be A-OK with the new guy coming in and basically taking his system, and him basically taking a step back. Now this is going back to 2020, Brady just turned 45. We're talking three years ago.
Did age have to play a factor here? Just a better long-term answer maybe with Derek Carr, who now we look differently about Derek Carr with what he just did this past year. But for Derek Carr, as he was entering 2020 and you were going into that season, not the same way that we talk about Derek Carr now, which is still just a good quarterback, and we don't know if he's going to be a great quarterback. Did Gruden look at that as a long-term play? Potentially, man.
I don't know how you can, you know? It's like he was coming off the best year in New England. Now I think a lot of people thought that was more about what was around him than him himself. I don't know if that's necessarily true.
I thought that. And I said, you're a fool to think that Brady is falling off the cliff just because of this past season, because I watched all those games, the wide receiver stunk and the offensive line was horrendous, but a lot of people that just look at the box scores and observe from afar go, oh, this is it for Brady. Brady's lost his fastball. So I don't know if a lot of people realize the wide receivers and the offensive line.
I would say a lot in the no, like decision-makers that would be in on, hey, should we sign Brady or not? Yes. But I do think I'm with you. At that point, what? Going to be 43? Right? 42 going to be 43? Yeah, 42. Yeah, 43.
Yeah. And that age. Age cannot be a factor, you know? I know you mentioned before, we've all been predicting and thinking this is the end for Tom Brady. If you were head coach, you also got to think, realistically, how many more years, how much more juice does this guy have left? I would think two years would be fair. I think it's fair too. And now when you're on a 10-year deal, remember Gruden on a 10-year deal at the time before all this stuff came out, he's on a 10-year deal.
I think it was pretty important to go get some wins there. And Brady definitely would have done that right away. Because Gruden at that time, let me just pull it up. I think what he's of, is he a year in or is it two years in?
Gruden at the time, he is two years in. Because in 2018, they were four and 12, 2019, seven and nine. So he's two years into a 10-year deal with $100 million, $10 million a year. Now four to seven is a jump. But when you're getting paid on a 10-year deal for $100 million, you got to take a big, big jump.
They didn't do that in 2020, they only increased to eight and eight. And then we know 2021, he was there for four or five games and then deservedly so, kicked to the curb. If I'm in that, if you're in that spot, and I know it's easy to say hindsight, it's 2020. You kicking car to the curb or are you saying no to Brady, who I guess wanted to go there? I think it's a lot easier to kick Derek Carr to the curb, especially, again, you said it. It's not like how we view Derek Carr now at a really good year last year and got the Raiders to the playoffs and everything went on. This was, we were joking, he bought a house next to John Gruden in Vegas, he won't even be in Vegas by that point. It was very easy to say, see you later, Derek Carr.
Next question, I agree with you on that. Do you buy when Jay Gruden said, because I saw you made a little facial reaction on the last answer that he has not talked to his brother yet, about this story that did break over the weekend? There's no way he hasn't talked to him about it.
Actually, you know, I'll say, I take that back. I actually would believe he hasn't talked to him about it because I think he knows back in 2020, they've talked about it, that he already is well aware and there's no reason to call your brother. He's already plugged into this story, even though he said this was the first time he heard it.
Classic. I will say this, I thought Jay Gruden was excellent on this show. I thought the football knowledge was great. If that was a, let's just say a 13, 14 minute interview, the two minute chunk about this story, I didn't know which way it was going to go. I personally am fine with the answers, but yeah, I did roll my eyes a little bit when he's trying to tell us that either this is the first time he heard about it or he has not talked to his brother yet about this story. And look, if I was saying my brother said the same thing, right?
It's your brother and this is a situation where it looks bad on you for not making the move. So it's not like, Oh yeah, I talked to him and yeah, we talked about it in 20, like two head coaches in 2020, you think they're not talking about, Oh, look, look who I could add or look what I could have signed. Was Gruden still head coach then in 2020?
No, was he offensive coordinator of the Jaguars? Still in the game or just, you know, two guys talking shop, there's no way he doesn't come up. Now my favorite answer, cause I would agree with you that he's talked to his brother about this before. His brother was interested in Brady and then it just didn't happen to put the kibosh on it.
I think this story didn't catch him by surprise, even though he said this was the first time he's heard about it. You though always love a little sibling rivalry. You could always fight with your sibling, but at the end of the day, you love them, right?
You love your sibling, but you also fight with your sibling. I think that's a little thing that just went on here with John and Jay. Cause John Gruden now is getting dragged.
He's been getting dragged for many other reasons, but in the last 72 hours, he's been getting dragged. You're an idiot. You're a moron. Dana White was going to get your Brady and Gronk. Gronk even admitted that that story was true. And the next thing you know, you didn't get them because your brother didn't want them. When I asked Jay, if you were running the Raiders at first, I thought he was going to be like, ah, it's a tough question to answer, but he did say at the end, it'd be very tough to pass up on Tom Brady. I think that's Jay, little sibling rivalry there, Hickey going, yeah, I'm not going to kill my brother, but I will make it clear that I don't want to get dragged here.
And yes, I would go Brady over Derek Carr, give a little compliment to Carr, but rub some elbows a little bit with your brother there, John Gruden. That's what that came off to me as. Smart man.
You know, Hey, no reason to join them down there in the misery, head of misery. It is the Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports Radio. We'll take a break. When we come on back, we're going to draft our first year head coaches. There's 10 of them this year in the NFL.
We'll see the five that Hickey winds up with and the five that I wind up with as well.

Hickey wait till I have to talk to you right now.
We'll get to our draft of new head coaches in just a second. You have zero clue what I'm about to bring up. You may have one of the worst takes of all time. What? You have probably did I stutter there? You have one of the worst takes of all time.
What does that even say anything to you last break? What in the world are you talking about? You have one of the worst takes of all time.
You have no indication what I'm about to reference here. Well, especially considering you feel like you said that almost everything I say so like anything I've said the last like, I don't know, 10 minutes, maybe I have no idea difference in me saying you're going to be wrong about something and me disagreeing with what you're saying and then taking it to the extreme of you had one of the worst takes of all time. The only time I think I've gone to you and say you've had one of the worst takes of all time. The only two instances I could ever remember and all the memory that I have of me disagreeing with you and just dissecting and going through my brain like I'm Sean McVeigh referencing plays from seven years ago is when you said that Carson Wentz was a steal for the Colts and then also when last year you were talking about Penn State going to the Big Ten Championship game and then the college football playoff. The only two times I think I've worst takes you of all time ever and this one I think tops both of them because what you tweeted out an hour ago is complete jackass about the Penn State thing. I was emotions.
They were highly right. It doesn't matter. You're like seven and six. I'll see you in Indy. Doesn't matter.
All right. What did I tweet this time? If this was stage talking about the guy with the hot dog as a straw in the beer, if this was stage, how much are you needing to pull off this stunt? That is what hot take. He tweeted Hickey's price $500,000 bare minimum. I'm 28. I will forever be known as the hot dog guy if I have to live with this embarrassment for another 60 years.
I want the money to be worth it. $500,000 to get a few tweets your way. That's what you're considering me the worst take of all time. It's embarrassing. And not only is it embarrassing. Even our boss agrees with us, Spike Eskin, who says forever, Ryan, this guy will be anonymous in 24 hours. Not true. Oh, he's 100% true.
I don't always agree with Spike, but Spike is 100% right here. There are a few things that cut through where everyone sees it. Everyone's talking about it.
And it like, you know, resonates. This is one of them. You're telling me.
Sure. Next week, we're talking about the guy with the hot dog as a straw in a beer. Not that we're talking about it. This is going to anytime he's around. If you ever know this guy or find out all this is the guy who did it. That's the first thing you're going to say with this guy the rest of his life. This guy could walk past you on your way to work tomorrow.
And you wouldn't even recognize him. If you ever find out this is the same guy that will forever follow him wherever he goes. Who cares? What do you who cares?
I don't want to be known as a guy who drinks beer through a hot dog straw. Do you think? Oh, look what you just did. See, people don't see this behind the scenes, but Hickey turns off his microphone and starts celebrating. The Mets got one run and then Brett Batty got thrown at the plate and you were celebrating as if they got two runs and pump in your fist and you look up at the screen, you saw they only got one run. Yeah, basically. That's all. It doesn't matter. Wasn't celebrating two runs. Basically. Anyway, not to try to get away from the conversation.
I need you locked in here, not locked in on the Mets game. Stand by what I said. You would not recognize this guy if you saw him walking down the street. If that was me, what if I was the guy yesterday? People are going to go up to you and go, oh, you're the guy that used the hot dog as a straw. Who cares? But it's it's disgusting.
It's gross. And again, it follows you wherever if that was you. If you if that was you and you were caught, whether a stage or not. And someone said, Zach, you want to go viral? Do this. You say, you know what? I do. Let me do it.
Sure. People. Most people may not recognize you initially. But you realize, oh, that's the guy that's never going to that's you're never going to escape that. You will forever be the hot dog guy.
That's the first thing anyone will ever identify. Oh, do you know who's hosting on the new show today? Oh, do you know my friend met? Remember the guy who drank beer?
I threw a hot dog. That's him. It's not. Oh, Zach, the radio host.
Oh, Zach, I went to high school. It is. That's the guy who drank beer through a hot time and not going to my reaction to be OK. So you saw an irrelevant person.
Disgusting. But you saw an irrelevant person. Do you know?
You know, there are some things I'm telling you that time out time out. Do you think the lady that dipped her chicken finger in a soda still these years later gets recognized? Oh, that's the girl that dipped her chicken finger in a soda. No, I'm not saying I was going to recognize. I don't know what she looks like. But once you find.
Yes, you do. Because once you once you know who it is, that's oh, she's yeah. If I found out one of my friends actually the chicken finger lady, I will forever. That's. Oh, you know who that girl is? Chicken finger.
That's $2,000 that you need. Yeah. You know, you take significantly less to just get as equal of a beating each and every day.
I am not going to be made fun of for doing something that is repulsive. You know how many times you get tweets? I was sick to my stomach yesterday. I'm not even kidding. Like, I'm not even being like hyperbolic here. I literally started like my stomach was churning as we were talking about this guy, Leroy Horn, just texted me.
What is Leroy? He was texting me and he had the perfect response. Now, first off, I'll get to his response in just a second. But supposedly, his co-host, Brendan Tobin, is not happy with me because I didn't love his hour number two a song. I didn't even think I was that critical of it. I just said I didn't like the song when I was listening to them when I was driving around Miami going to the airport. It was seven in the morning and my coffee yet.
So maybe that did influence that opinion. I'll be joining those guys on 790 the ticket. One of our great affiliates. Well, I think they're still out of Philly. I don't know.
It's QAM 790. Same company. Now we're on one of those stations. But I'll be joining those guys tomorrow at 920 a.m. Eastern. And I'm sure Brendan Tobin just going to say, oh, he's a Patriot fan. He's a Patriot fan.
Living in New York. And he won't really have anything. But my guy Leroy Horn, hot take Hickey, just tweeted out this or no, just texted me this. Hickey would do it for 20 bucks and a Krispy Kreme.
He's lying when he says five hundred thousand dollars. You want to go talk smack to Leroy Horn? He'll line up and do an Oklahoma drill and put you on your ass. He would. That's why I would never fight him. But I would say he's wrong.
I definitely would not do it for a doughnut and twenty dollars. I'm good. I will. You can call me hot take Hickey. That's what I'm known for. Fine. I love it. Take Hickey on this.
I will absolutely not be known as hot dog guy. That is for damn sure. That's just. I care. It's a criminal.
I just I'm gross. I mean, that's people are calling for this guy to be in jail. You said you said I think you said put him in jail, take him out of the ballpark.
No, no, no, no. I said ban him from the stadium. All right. Same thing. You you know, you take I'll say this to you again, way less than five hundred thousand dollars to get just as equal of the abuse each and every day.
You have people that tweet you out of nowhere on the regular hot take Hickey said this hot take Hickey said that we want hot take Hickey to see his Indianapolis Colts lose to Carson Wentz and the commanders. You take a beating each and every day. You don't need five hundred thousand dollars to show up to this job. That's OK. I stand by what I say. So people disagree. That's fine.
I do not stand by that disgusting. I think you're being hypocritical behavior. I think you need to go into management's office tomorrow and say I demand five hundred thousand dollars. That's sure. I'd like to do that. Absolutely. We should get that on video because I just wonder how quickly Spike says no to that.
I probably say five and not even getting that thin arrow then I need a raise. By the way when I heard Brendan Tobin take a few shots at me today I spent like 30 minutes talking about a one minute comment that I made. He said something along the lines of I bet you Gelb doesn't do any fun radio or any entertaining radio or anything outside the box he probably just breaks down typical quarterbacks or things like that. We just gave you what 10 minutes of Hickey just being a liar and going after hot take Hickey.
You know we don't do necessarily always the traditional radio that everyone does. What do you mean being a liar. I told you I would have tweeted if I didn't believe it. I'm not being the hot dog guy again and I'm 28. Your minimum price is five hundred thousand dollars.
I plan on being here till least 90. I call you up fifty thousand dollars. You're saying no? No.
Baloney. I'm not doing it. Give me fifty thousand dollars to just have people make fun of you on social media. Give me fifty thousand dollars.
I'll go to Yankee Stadium tomorrow and do the same thing that this hot dog idiot did. Fifty thousand dollars Hickey. You don't need five. If I tell you a hundred K you're telling me no? Telling you no? I'm out.
I'm not doing it. Put your lying ass on a lie detector. That guy transcended the Internet. You're a liar liar pants on fire.
Am I wrong? What do you mean he transcended the Internet? That cut through.
This is twenty four hours forty eight hours and then it becomes a pimple on ass. What again? Once that guy wants his family wants his friends and maybe I hope he's on the dating scene I'll tell you that right now. If this guy's in the dating scene any chance of him getting a date is Gonzo. What are you talking about?
What girl would say oh yeah I'm gonna go start dating the guy who drinks beer through his hot dog. He had pretty good seats. Absolutely not.
He had pretty good seats. Okay. Money doesn't buy happiness. Date a psychopath too.
Money sometimes does buy love. You want to date a psychopath? I don't.
Your girlfriend does. Please. I'm not doing anything near that that level of disgusting ass. You're afraid to eat anything. Yeah. You know what? Yeah. I'd rather not eat.
I'd rather just stick to my PB&Js and chicken fingers every day then go exploring and end up you know down that alley. That's for sure. You're full of crap. I am saying your bare minimum price is five hundred thousand dollars.
Half a mil. Could have went. Could have gone crazy. Do me a favor. Can I get your parents on the phone?
What are you talking about? Your parents would kill you if you turned down a hundred thousand dollars to do this. A hundred thousand dollars.
Heck I even think if you were offered ten grand you would do it. I don't even know what the equivalent now would be because this has already been done so that now you know when someone does it again the copycats never you know doesn't really matter as much. I don't even know what would like what would be the the equivalent.
I don't even know. I would only drink beer using hot dog out of a straw if you paid me five hundred thousand dollars. Seriously. Well I'd use a hot dog as a straw for the rest of my life drinking a beer. If that means you give me five hundred thousand dollars. I feel bad for you then. That's not a life worth living. I'm laughing because Leroy then just text me. I shotgun that bleep for 50k on ESPN and that's a former NFL running back.
That's a man's man Leroy Hoard. Then you have hot take Kiki. Oh cause some jackass on Twitter would make fun of me. I need five hundred thousand dollars cause I'll live in infamy forever. I need five hundred thousand dollars.
Give me a break. You know what if anything I'm opening up more business for you and Leroy. You're welcome. There you go.
What do you mean you open up more business? Because now my price is too high so if if whatever you know social media Ellen wants to go hey who wants to go viral I need a I need a volunteer. You and Leroy come right down. There you go. We got two folks, two volunteers.
Five hundred thousand dollars. You know Maggie and Perloff did this today and they got paid nothing extra. I know. It wouldn't be me.
Gio did it today on CBS Sports Network got paid nothing extra. Wouldn't be me. Why not? Disgusting. Come on.
I'm not I got not sick physically sick but my stomach was churning. I could move you so easily off that price. I cannot sit there in good conscience and good faith and say you know what I'm gonna sell my soul for anything else. If I went to the bank tomorrow and took out a hundred thousand dollars and put the cash right in front of you like old school style with the briefcase or the gym bag and threw it right in front of you and threw you a gym bag full of a hundred thousand dollars in cash you have to go to Yankee Stadium and you have to go do this.
You're telling me that you wouldn't do it? What is one of your biggest critiques of me? I dig in my heels. I'm too stubborn.
Yeah. And you just can't admit when you're wrong. It's your boss.
Do our boss is telling you that you're absurd for this. I think this is going to be Will Smith Chris Rock ask I think this is going to be a dress or gold dress when you hear that people immediately know exactly what you're talking about. There's few things that stand on everyone's brain. I think it's going to be Will Smith slap blue dress gold dress drinking hot dog drinking beer through a hot dog. You're out of here.
Those three are going to be in the same vein when it comes to Internet moments that everyone knows. You're out of your mind. I am not. You really are. And you're smiling at me right now. No because I'm being serious. I don't understand how you don't think that this is.
What is up with all you producers here at CBS Sports Radio with these contrived takes. You are morass now. Contrived?
You are morass now. You're not even believing what you're actually saying. Five hundred thousand dollars to do this. You said cash. I said no way. Yeah. But once again if I bring in the money bring in the cash you're not turning it down. Bring in the cash. Oh come on. Can you return the cash to the bank. Yeah. It's called making a deposit.
Hey hey my producer is the biggest moron in the world. Take back this hundred K that I got. Also if there are any bank robbers out there we're definitely not doing this for real. Definitely not. And we also have a bank adjacent to the station. If I get robbed. I would not go in there. From going to the station to then here it's a two foot walk. Don't go in there.
No problem. That bank is gross. But you know what I see in the winter there. Yeah. Yeah.
There's homeless people that live in the bank. Stay away. Go to another bank. All right. Go go farther walk in.
Put yourself in more danger. We will maybe do one of those cheesy lame ass segments coming up later in the show when we get to our draft. That'll be a Brendan Tobin Zach Geld thought out to be segment. So we'll do that at some point. We come on back though we got to talk Kevin Durant. Leroy Hort should fly to Miami. Fly from Miami to New York and beat you up for saying you need five hundred thousand dollars to do this. It's a joke.
