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.

What happens if a city is so crappy that everyone leaves that city yet continues to root for the same awful team even after they've left?

You have the Pittsburgh Steelers fan base.

Steelers fans are everywhere. Not because their fan base is so large, but because the city of Pittsburgh is such a dump that if these fans had stayed in Pittsburgh they'd all be unemployed, homeless, and using their terrible towels to help stay warm while sleeping on top of a street vent.

Steeler Nation?

Please.  

That isn't a nation, it's just a collection of people who didn't want to be homeless and decided to move to your city instead of staying in Pittsburgh and freezing to death. 

Larry David and President Obama's Round of Golf

Written by: Clay Travis

This weekend Larry David played golf with President Obama on Martha's Vineyard. 

Given that whether or not there will be a ninth season of the funniest show in television history, "Curb Your Enthusiasm," I thought I'd draft a potential outline for the season opener, Larry plays golf with the President. Given that golf has a recurring role on Curb, playing a round of golf with Obama is a perfect episode for the show.  

Hell, given David's storytelling ability, the round of golf with Obama could be the framework for the entire ninth season. 

With that in mind, here's a rough outline of a Curb episode surrounding Larry's round with Obama. 

I hope you guys enjoy it. (By the way, Larry David would be my number one choice for golfing partner if I could pick anyone in the country).

Outkick the Coverage's 2013 Preseason Top 25

Written by: Clay Travis

Everyone does a preseason top 25 poll.

And when your poll doesn't square with what everyone else predicts then you're clearly biased against their favorite team.

So as a preliminary, if your team isn't ranked highly enough it's clearly because I hate your team, player, or coach and I'm also gay, sexist, and racist.

Now that we've knocked that out of the way.  

My BCS title game prediction is Alabama vs. Oregon. That's why I have the Tide and the Ducks number one and two in the preseason top 25. 

Some of you will note that I took Georgia at 25-1 to win the BCS title and assert this is a conflict. It's not. I believe Georgia winning a BCS title offers the best gambling value of any team in college football. That's not because I believe the Bulldogs are more likely to win the title than Alabama. It's simply because I believe Georgia offers the best risk/reward on the gambling markets. Alabama is much more likely to win the BCS title than Georgia is. But if these two teams advance to the SEC title game -- as I'm projecting they will -- I think we'll see another very tight SEC title game. Bama would probably be around a touchdown favorite. Does Bama deserve to be 8x as likely to win the BCS title as Georgia. No way. So I like the Georgia bet better than I do the Alabama bet. 

That's why it's important to distinguish between my picks based on market valuations and my picks based on straight up winners. Most of the time I try to pick against the spread here on Outkick because I know that lots of you guys gamble. Last year we had a great season picking against the spread. I went 44-21 against the spread, won both my over and under season win total picks, and jumped on Bama at 6-1 after the Tide lost to A&M. So if you followed my picks, you made quite a bit of money. Will I be as successful in 2013? That's highly doubtful. But I'll try.

As I write this mailbag I am presently flying to Los Angeles to tape our first ever college football preseason show for Fox Sports 1. 

Guess who is in the aisle directly across from me?

Connie Britton!

After her Tami Taylor role on "Friday Night Lights," she's my favorite actress on Earth. She looks the exact same in person as she did on FNL and does now on "Nashville."

So I've already helped her put her bags up in the overhead bin. Helping Tami Taylor with her luggage is now the fifth greatest moment of my life. (1 and 2, birth of kids, 3. marriage, 4. passing the bar exam 5. putting Tami Taylor's luggage in the overhead bin.)

By the way, I always help women put their overhead bags in the bin and I was in line directly behind Connie on our Southwest flight. So I would have done it for any woman. And it's not like I bowled over ten people to get the luggage up top. (I'm actually less likely to help attractive women because I'm thinking that they're thinking the only reason I'm doing this is because they're hot.) 

She was thankful for the help and now I'm sitting here trying to figure out whether or not to say something to her.

And I just Tweeted y'all to ask for advice. 

With Clay’s recent purchase of a few thousand pairs of pants to launch OutkickGear.com, the site’s partnership with Fox Sports, and Clay’s new gig on the Fox Sports 1 college football game day show, it’s fair to surmise (albeit incorrectly) that OKTC has become a worldwide multiplatform, multimedia conglomerate. However, as Clay has made clear over the years, he doesn’t have the looks (or fashion sense) to be the face of such a rapidly growing empire.

I admire people from Minnesota. With the exception of the psycho Viking fans still pissed about the 1998 NFC Championship Game, Minnesota’s people are incredibly nice. This in spite of the bone cracking cold they live in roughly 95.8% of the year. 

Come January the leaders of the NCAA will have a summit to discuss the future of college athletics. It's an important meeting, one that could fundamentally alter the fabric of the college athletics experience. As the Johnny Manziel autograph saga continues to play out, lots of you have been emailing and Tweeting asking what kind of system I would design if I was suddenly in charge of fixing a broken NCAA. So I've spent lots of time thinking about this issue over the past couple of months. 

You guys know I'm not a fan of the NCAA, in fact, I think all too often the organization has engaged in ruthless, arbitrary, and capricious rulings. But I do understand that the NCAA has been charged with a fundamentally impossible job -- combatting a free market in a country founded on the principles of a free market. It continues to amaze me when people are surprised that payment to football and men's college basketball players finds a way to reach those players. Didn't prohibition and the war on drugs teach us anything? If a market values something, the money finds a way to get to its intended target.

Often, however, college football scandals don't involve very much money in the grand scheme of things. I mean, we're talking about Johnny Manziel being ineligible for a few thousand dollars in sold autographs. When you consider that college football is now a multi-billion dollar a year business, does that many any sense at all, that a player could be ineligible for pocketing that kind of money?

So how do you fix the NCAA?

You've got to separate the revenue producing and non-revenue producing sports. 

Okay, but how do you do that legally?

My idea sounds radical, but it's actually pretty simple:  

Living in Oakland, California is a bit like choosing to live in the outhouse in the Garden of Eden.

All around you is spectacular, beautiful landscape and perfect cities, and you've chosen to live amidst the effluvium. 

So maybe it's no surprise that Raider fans are so angry they're willing to kill visiting fans who make the poor decision to travel to Oakland and watch their team play.

Raider fans are the only people on Earth who could consider it a compliment to call their stadium, "The Black Hole." 

You want to know how dumb Raider fans are? Al Davis was the smartest living Raider fan in the world. 

And he was batshit crazy. 

The internet hasn't made SEC fans crazy.

But it has allowed the rest of the nation to realize how crazy SEC fans really are.

Of late YouTube music videos have become popular.  

We've had Arkansas fans singing, "I'm a Beliemer," and a Kentucky fan dueling for the worst fan song ever with his Big Blue Nation song. 

Now Tennessee fans have joined the fray.

And the Internet wins again. 

Meet "The Butch Jones Song." 

Four former Vanderbilt football players were charged with five counts of aggravated rape and two counts of sexual battery on Friday. The charges stem from the alleged rape of a 21-year-old student,, who was reportedly passed out in a campus dorm room at the time of the assault.  

The players, who had been dismissed from the team and barred from the university since late June, each face charges totaling  more than 100 years in prison. 

Vanderbilt issued its own statement on the incident Friday. You can read the entirety of the statement here.

The most interesting aspect of that statement? These two lines:

"The charges brought today against the four former Vanderbilt football players allege conduct which is abhorrent and will never be tolerated. We will review our athletics program to be sure that it, like all other programs at the university, reflects our culture of community and respect for others and that our student athletes are held to the same high standards of conduct as all our students."
