Will the SEC Network Carry Clemson at Georgia?

Written by: Clay Travis

The SEC Network is slowly rolling out the first weekend's football schedule. The goal? Exact a maximum amount of pain for DirecTV, Comcast, Time Warner, and the other smaller cable providers who have not yet signed up to carry the channel.

So far six SEC teams will be commencing their seasons on the SEC Network. It starts on Thursday night when Vanderbilt hosts Temple and then Texas A&M travels to South Carolina. The two games are not so subtle shots at Time Warner -- which is big in South Carolina and Texas -- as well as Comcast, which is based in Philadelphia and dominates the Nashville market. In fact, look into the SEC Network schedule and it's a fascinating battle plan, designed to cause the most pain possible for recalcitrant cable and satellite companies. 

On Saturday Auburn and Arkansas are playing and on Sunday Utah State travels to Tennessee.

That means six SEC teams have been announced for the opening weekend on the SEC Network, but there are still two games left to announce.

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."

Okay, it's mailbag part two today.

You're all fortunate to have to work less.

I've already published the West Virginia hatemail, which you absolutely, positively have to read. 

Now you get to see Steve Spurrier shirtless. 

And read more mailbag. 

See, I really do love all of you. 

I have drastically underrated the stupidity of West Virginia fans.

I mean, their collective idiocy is mind-boggling, like the reverse Manhattan project. I've never done two mailbags in the same day, but these West Virginia emails and Tweets are so astoundingly amazing that I want them to stand alone and be marveled at, like a great work of art in the Louvre.

It takes a particular kind of dumb to even be able to come up with these emails and Tweets. They're so illogical and harebrained and conspiracy laden it's a wonder anyone ever comes out of West Virginia alive. Or with a GED. 

Without further ado, here's the West Virginia hate mail:

During conference expansion one fan base exceeded all other fan bases in pure delusion -- West Virginia. 

Morning after morning I'd awake to find a grammatically challenged missive about why West Virginia was a great fit for the SEC or the ACC or the Big Ten or the Big 12 or the Pac 12 or any other conference in the country not named the Big East. The reasoning was illogical, harebrained, conspiracy-laden and downright incomprehensible. All of it suggested that West Virginia was a "national brand" with "huge television ratings" that promised decades of continued renown.

All of it was ridiculous and stupid.  

Welcome to West Virginia, the 8th dumbest fan base in the country. 

In 1940 West Virginia had a population of over 1.9 million people. Eighty years later the 2010 United States census estimated there were now 1.8 million people living in the state.

This means that during a seventy year period representing one of the most successful economic expansions in world history, the state of West Virginia actually lost 100,000 residents.

How remarkable was this population decline? 

Kentucky Fan Sings Worst Song In Internet History

Written by: Clay Travis

Our countdown of the ten dumbest fan bases in America has been stalled by my travel and the sudden NCAA investigation of Johnny Manziel. 

But that doesn't mean that we've suddenly stoppped paying attention to ridiculous fans. 

Which is why when several of you started sending us this Kentucky fan's video on Twitter we were so giddy.  

It's real and spectacular. 

Without further ado meet Joe Shroer and his magical song, "I bleed Big Blue."

The Manziel Moves

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

Unless you live under a rock, it’s been impossible to ignore the biggest story facing college football this offseason: targeting.  All kidding aside we know that Johnny Football has become (if he wasn’t already) the most polarizing figure in the national sports conscience not named Alex Rodriguez.  Speculation continues to run rampant about his eligibility for the 2013 season and depending on whom you speak to about the story, you’re bound to get a dissenting sentiment.  Here in the desert we have our opinions on everything sports related and when choosing to speculate on certain situations, we back each one with money.  Little to say the events of the last 10 days have flipped the gambling community on its ear as both bookmakers and gamblers try to find an edge while the Manziel chronicles unfold.

It looks like South Carolina may have its own mess surrounding a player selling his autograph.

And this time the player in question is the presumptive No. 1 pick in next year's NFL Draft, freakish defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.  

Selling your autograph would be a violation of NCAA amateurism rules, 

According to sleuthing by an SBNation blog, the same company that has been selling many Johnny Manziel officially authenticated autographs is also selling a ton of Jadeveon Clowney authentically autographed merchandise.

Specifically, 258 consecutively numbered autographed items.

Why does that matter?

Because that consecutive numbering suggests that all the signatures happened in one sitting.

Now, maybe Clowney was signing over 250 consecutive items because he thought the autographs all went to charity. Or maybe he did it because he's just a nice guy.  

Certainly those are plausible arguments I would float if I worked in South Carolina's compliance office. 

College athletes have the power to destroy the NCAA. 

All it would require is an agreement to join the revolution. 

What if three weeks from today, the day before the college football season began, every athlete held an event where every single player signed his autograph and sold it to willing fans?

The NCAA restriction on paying players would die on the spot. 


Because the NCAA isn't suspending every college football player in America the day before the season begins.
