Bama Fans Propose at Spring Game

Written by: Clay Travis

There are few things more romantic than proposing to your future wife at Alabama's spring game.

At least that's what the 85% of Alabama fans think.  

It's become an annual tradition, Alabama hosts a free spring football game and 85%'ers fall all over themselves to remember this moment forever, via a spring game proposal. Today we already have at least two such proposals. The first arrives via @mcbradtrey, who snapped this heartwarming photo of a bald man dropping down to one knee on the Bryant-Denny field and proposing to his wife as a crowd of idle onlookers looked on thinking, "Roll Tide!" and "I wish Nick Saban was here shirtless!"

Proving that women want to get married so badly they can make anything seem romantic, the woman here seems to be inclined to say yes. 

Which is unfortunate. 

Because I think if you get proposed to at a spring game every woman should say no out of principle.

2013 SEC Title CBS Drinking Game

Written by: Clay Travis

It's back!

#cbsdrink returns just in time for the final SEC football game of the year, the game everyone predicted back in August -- Missouri vs. Auburn. 

I wish I could go back in time to write this column -- not because I'd look like a genius -- but to see the indignation that would have poured in over that prediction. 

Apologies for taking so long to get the rules up this week, but it's been busy here. 

Hope y'all survived the ice storm. 

Play along with your Internet friends at #cbsdrink

I apologize for the mailbag being late today, but I've been down in Atlanta running around at all the SEC title game events. 

But because I know many of you don't feel comfortable rolling into the weekend without the mailbag here we go. 

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Auburn's Chris Davis. 

Because, you know, he just pulled off the most amazing play in college football history.

"Clay, I know you will not answer my question because it is regarding the Big Ten Championship game but I am asking it anyways. On Saturday night my wife and I are participating in a progressive dinner, you know one of those things where you bring food and travel to other's houses to eat it (I don't get it). We couldn't say no but both knew of the game that night, both of us are Buckeye fans that don't miss a game.

We were banking on the fact we could watch the game at the last house we were going to be at but we just found out last night this house does not have cable. What is our excuse to leave so we can go watch the game?"

Jameis Winston Case Ends With No Charges Filed

Written by: Clay Travis

Ultimately the Jameis Winston case boiled down to the credibility of the alleged victim’s claims of rape against the sworn statements of Winston’s two friends that the sex acts were consensual.

The alleged victim said she was raped by a man that she did not know. She submitted to a rape test and contacted authorities within hours of what she believed was a sexual assault. A month later she realized who her assailant was and informed authorities. But her story was not iron clad and her recollections were spotty. Her one consistent theme was this -- she maintained she was raped for nearly a year, since the December 7th encounter between she and Winston.  

Jameis Winston, on the other hand, never spoke to authorities when they asked for his side of the story. Instead his defense team proferred two afffidavits from friends who claimed to have witnessed a consensual sexual encounter between the woman and Winston in the bedroom of Winston’s apartment.

Those two friends asserted that they’d seen a consensual sexual relationship through Winston’s bedroom door, which didn’t lock. They also said that the alleged victim had been a willing participant in the trip back to Winston’s apartment and that she hadn’t been too drunk to consent to sexual activity.

Those stories contradicted what the victim told police, that she’d passed out in Winston’s apartment, refused consent, and been sexually assaulted in both the bedroom and the bathroom.

I made a poor life decision on Saturday night. One that will resonate with me for years to come with consequences I'm just now beginning to fully appreciate. I write this not for myself, but as a service to you, my fellow sports fans. I write this so you won't make the same mistake I did. Robert Frost once wrote that he took the road less traveled and that made all the difference.

Let this be your difference. Don't take my road.  

Texas Site Goes All In On Nick Saban to Texas

Written by: Clay Travis

Nick Saban to Texas is the rumor that will not die.

Last night a social media firestorm erupted over Saban to Texas. (Above photo via yahoo).

Where did it originate?

At a website called InsideTexas.com. 

And via a writer who goes by the pen name of Jesus Shuttlesworth.

Yes, I'm for real.  

My Week 15 Picks and TV Viewer Guide

Written by: Clay Travis

The ice storm cometh. 

And what's the only way you can survive your impending icy death in the South?

By watching football and not leaving your house all weeekend. 

I promise, it's the truth. Just make sure you have your bread and milk. 

We went 5-5 last week with the picks.

This means our yearly Outkick picks are now sitting at 46-48.

There's only one thing that can save us now.

Nick Saban creme pies.  

Wait, what?

Eleven of the 14 quarterbacks who started the SEC season missed or will miss starts this year. 

The only three players to start every game for their teams are AJ McCarron at Alabama, Johnny Manziel at Texas A&M and Bo Wallace at Ole Miss. Twelve of the 14 quarterbacks have been knocked out of the game at some point -- Manziel was injured by Auburn -- and forced to miss snaps.

As if that wasn't enough, three teams have lost two quarterbacks to injury that led them to their third string starter. Florida and Tennessee both lost two quarterbacks to season-ending injury while Mississippi State ended up playing a true freshman third stringer in the final season of the year. (Tennessee actually lost three quarterbacks and ended up starting a fourth stringer at the start of the year, true freshman Joshua Dobbs, for the final four games of the season). 

So what gives?

How is it that the quarterbacks who started the year in the SEC had a nearly 80% injury rate? (Nearly 40% of these injuries were season ending as well). 

Was this a one year statistical anomaly or is it reflection of a larger trend?

BCS Scenarios

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

Pointspreads are not predictive indicators of future results. Games aren’t played in the sportsbooks of Las Vegas. We were reminded again this past weekend that just being favored doesn’t give you a free pass to the national title.  Lines are used to indicate relative strength between teams while also including public perception, recency bias, or conference affiliation to force gamblers into tough decisions. With only a week to go in the regular season, here’s how Vegas views the potential match-ups that we could see in Pasadena.

By: Aaron Tallent

No one expected Missouri to be playing in the SEC championship game this Saturday. The usually spot-on Phil Steele had the Tigers finishing sixth, just ahead of Kentucky. However, Mizzou overcame an injury to quarterback James Franklin and an overtime loss to South Carolina to finish 11-1. If the Tigers beat Auburn and either Ohio State or Florida State lose, they will be playing for the national title. Not bad for a program whose odds of winning a national championship at the beginning of the season were 250-1. Then again, the Tigers surprise so often that they should proverbially wear black trench coats, carry sawed-off shotguns and smoke Newports.

While there are many metaphors for SEC teams, no one has crossed the greatest conference in the land with “The Wire,” the greatest television show ever made. There are some no-brainers. Alabama is Marlo Stanfield, the ruthless kingpin who controlled the drug trade by systematically eliminating anyone who stood in his way or spoke ill of him. Tennessee is Bodie Broadus, the Barksdale captain who ran the project towers but was eventually relegated to one corner. And Mizzou would be Omar Little, the renegade, principled drug thief who would come out of the shadows to wreak havoc on Baltimore’s most infamous villains.
