I had control but I did track down a few business owners who are willing to kind of -- -- -- and landed him so hard to say they intend to speak it's very touchy and I think that.
They want to be solid stand by the school and they're probably sick of talking about at this point.
I felt like half the people like called I would say reporter and they just didn't even you know they tents up meeting and we're talking about personal well yes definitely -- the first thing is I talked it was -- Eileen.

And every day seems like another football player is leaving the school to go.
Two different football program and she relies on those football fans -- all of her rooms and -- she said she's nervous about that talent for this upcoming season and while she hasn't had any cancellations yet.
-- just yet definitely good sign that she's starting to -- some of the price on her website -- entice people.
Coming today did she tell you if there ever sold down loaded if so plan are yeah I think usually those probably -- weekends are huge.

Like what we're saying meaning people wanna stand by the school they want to show -- pendency I didn't have -- really ready to move on me and another thing that she said she -- that you know.
They have the largest -- maybe in the country so this.
For her she doesn't think it's going to really impact -- two RB she said she doesn't -- I need to say it wouldn't have any sort of a -- scouts so.
It says OK Kate you said.
Fourteen years of winds were wiped out in the name -- -- nick need lions.
He doesn't -- paper you can't change history no matter how or why you -- right it yes that's sure I know landed the big players are forgetting me that he said it you know either metal plate in my back from one of those -- that was wiped out so.

He said about 10% of his business is means deep crowd.
-- 10% as business comes from those sports bars and people watching the door anyway gains yeah.
So that's great because the Penn State fans go to the local bar to watch if they can't get -- exactly so he was concerned about that.
But incidentally did it take that away from them the way -- can still live broadcast until he was happy about that.
And -- the opposite of may from the bed and breakfast he's concerned about the future.
