From a broadcasting standpoint what's the challenge make it that adjustment was the biggest change what the college game and when you look at the two. Well I think the biggest change is just to really have a better understanding of the college football landscape -- cover the NFL for sixteen seasons. Consecutively. And now coming over to college is that a thirty plus teams we have. You know pac twelve big well. Big Ten and SEC. Just big east and there's so there's so many more teams are so many more stories.
