Joel: Tim I pronounced your last name correctly in the opening, right?

Tim: Oh Nutsacket.

Joel: Welcome back, Tim, It's been a year.

Tim: I know and I can't tell you, I mean I've heard from tens of people that've listened to your podcast that are like, "Oh my gosh I can't believe that you're gonna be on the most dangerous HR podcast ever, which is so sad.

Joel: To highlight you said tens, right?

Tim: Tens.

Joel: We have way more listeners than we thought, Jeff.

Chad: Yeah I know it's pretty awesome. I know we've got like ... But most are our family though, right?

Joel: Yeah. Well Tim welcome to the show, man. New listeners won't know that you were on our year end show or year beginning show last year, to go through predictions. You were star of one of our most popular podcasts last year which was the indeed jail podcast.

Tim: Going to jail.

Joel: So it's always a treat.

Tim: I mean right, I've gotten more content out of Indeed putting me in jail for the year and then deciding to screw over every staffing firm, it just keeps clicking away. Love it.

Joel: You and Chad have made a career out of fucking Indeed, it's great.

Tim: That's just 'cause they love fucking everybody else, so I mean it's fair play, bub.

Joel: And they stole your Christmas sweater idea.

Tim: Sons of bitches. You guys had a great Christmas sweater.

Joel: Dude. That's all Chad, man. I don't want any credit for that.

Chad: You're not gonna get any credit because it was my idea, you thought it was dumb and everybody else is like, "That is the shit." I'm like, "I know it's the shit."

Tim: I just wanna know how far ahead of time do you have to think about that to get it to China to have some seven year old kid make it, like it's ... That'd have to be at least nine months.

Chad: It's made in Germany, man, and it actually took about eight weeks, yeah.

Joel: The country that gave us Claudia Schiffer also gave us that God awful sweater.

Chad: It's fuckin' awesome, dude. I love it.

Chad: Let's talk about 2018 predictions, where we came out, and first and foremost I'd like to say that I was wrong because Saquon Barkley was a hit but Ed in Philly, shut up Penn State still sucks.

Chad: Cleveland took Mayfield, which Joel was wrong and I was right because the

Browns, they love the bad boy. But he's not doin' too bad right now, is he?

Joel: I'm warming up to him. Little by little.

Chad: At the end of the day in 2018 we all agree Michigan still sucks, so ...

Joel: Amen to that.

Chad: So those were kind of like the pre not talent predictions.

Joel: Did we really talk like draft predictions on last year's show?

Chad: Yeah we did, we did, we talked a little bit about draft predictions and who we thought was going to kick ass and take names.

Tim: What do you guys think about the process of all these kids not playing in ball game?

Joel: Don't like it, but totally get it. I do think you have to be a top ten to 15 player to do it, though. So my wife is a West Virginia grad and Will Grier is arguably a top five quarterback in the draft. He's projected to go second or third round. He has said, "I'm not gonna play in the game." To me he should play, 'cause he could light up whoever and maybe even move up into a first rounder, but I think you shouldn't do it unless you're like a top ten or 15 pick.

Tim: Yeah, Michigan State's got a quarterback that literally is like he might be a six or seventh round or even not get drafted, he's not playing and you wanna go, "I don't know if you're helping yourself."

Chad: There's a risk reward there, right? In that case, that's all about reward. I really don't see a risk there, but my pick for this year where it's around the same thing but Nick Bosa, he went out early in the season with an injury and he decided not to come back but here's my prediction. I still think he's gonna go top five picks because he dominated every game he was in and genetics, big guys, his dad played in the NFL and his brother is tearin' the shit out of offensive lines right now.

Joel: This is how Chad does his predictions, like he looks at every mock draft that has Bosa as a top five pick and then he comes on the show and goes, "I think he's gonna be a top five pick, that's my prediction." Like that's such a bold pick, every expert has him top five and now Chad has him top five.

Chad: I didn't look at anything.

Joel: Way to put yourself out there, Chad.

Tim: I'm gonna put one out there. Duke's gonna win the NCA tournament.

Chad: That's a good one. I like that one.

Joel: That's a good one like would you take Duke over the field?

Tim: Oh God yeah. I would take Duke over the field right now in a heartbeat.

Joel: I'll go sports. Jim Harbaugh is not the coach of Michigan next year.

Tim: No.

Joel: It goes to the pros.

Tim: That's a good one though, I like that.

Joel: And potentially Cleveland is in the Catbird seat for his services. I think he's either in Cleveland or Green Bay.

Tim: Did Ohio state make the right decision?
