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.

Outkick the Coverage: Year Two Stats

Written by: Clay Travis

The official two-year anniversay of Outkick the Coverage is July 20, 2013. 

But last year I broke out our one year data while on family vacation in Mackinac Island, Michgan and this year I'm going to do the same again. 

I share this data with you guys because I want you to feel like you have ownership of OKTC too. You guys are the ones driving traffic here, sending me great links, keeping the mailbag incredibly fun and just generally allowing all of us to make sure the days pass quite a bit faster thanks to OKTC.

The first year the question was -- could Outkick work? In the second year, we thrived. As we prepare to enter the third year in a large partnership with Fox Sports, the newest question is this, how do we continue to grow rapidly while retaining the vibe that has made OKTC so much fun thus far. 

As always, I hope you guys will continue to email and Tweet your story ideas, suggestions, and reactions. 

The past two years running Outkick have been more fun than I've ever had professionally. 

So let's dive into the data.

This preview is not concerned with X’s & O’s or talent. It is going to predict the standings of the Big 12 based on the mental health of each Big 12 team with a focus on the head coach. DISCLAIMER: I am not a psychiatrist.  

Every online writer starts somewhere.

For me, I started writing online in 2004 when I moved to the U.S. Virgin Islands and discovered that DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket was not available in my new home.

I was upset.

So I did what every reasonable person would do -- I embarked upon a fifty day pudding strike to demand that the Virgin Islands receive the NFL Sunday Ticket. During that time I ate only pudding. My pudding strike became a viral sensation before anyone knew what being viral meant. It was everywhere. You can probably track down your own articles via a Google search, but here's a Pulitzer worthy interview and column on my pudding strike from the Orlando Sentinel. 

After the pudding strike ended -- we succeeded in snagging a pirated feed of the NFL Sunday Ticket from Puerto Rico -- I decided I'd enjoyed writing humorous pieces online and wanted to do more of it.

But, go figure, there wasn't much of a market for pudding strikers. (Although I do submit that my daily pudding diary was some of the finest pudding related literature to ever be created. Online, anyway). 

So I decided to start a humor website with several buddies, the funniest guys I knew from high school, college, and law school. We were an interesting lot of characters, a lawyer in the Virgin Islands, a Subaru salesman who used to play basketball at Colorado, Josh Townsend, a pro basketball player overseas, my buddy D.J. Harrison, the 27, a Florida lawyer who already hated big firm life, and the man who built our website and made everything click, a PhD student from Maryland named Chris Shaw who I met in freshman year of college.   

Our idea was pretty simple -- be funny every day for people like us who sat in offices looking for entertaining things on the Internet. 

All That and a Bag of Mail: Married Sexpectations

Written by: Clay Travis

It's the Friday after the 4th of July and I know lots of you still have to work. 

That's despite the fact that you are hungover, your ears are still ringing from firework blasts, and bunches of you are probably sunburned from a day spent outside. 

But have no fear. 

The mailbag doesn't take days off.

Not even when I slept all night beside my two year old's crib in my father in law's house. He was asking me questions all night long. Until about 3:30 in the morning when my two year old woke me up because he had to poo. So I get him out of bed, strip him out of his pajamas, get him seated on the potty with my hands on his shoulders so he doesn't fall in the potty -- this has happened twice -- and what happens?

His pee hits me right in the shins.

I was worried about the poo coming before we got to the potty and I forgot to remind him to tuck his peepee down.

The peepee tuck is a key part of the potty training process. 

So what do you do at 3:30 in the morning when your son pees all over your legs and you're standing there bleary-eyed with pee all over your shins?

I just wiped my legs off with toilet paper and went straight back to bed.

Welcome to dad life.

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Kate Upton in an American flag bikini.

You're welcome.  

Now on to the mailbag.  

Ever since the Aaron Hernandez story broke, Outkick has been arguing that there's no way Odin Lloyd was Hernandez's first shooting victim.

It just didn't make sense. 

No one goes from smoking pot to an execution style murder a half-mile from his home.

No, our theory was that Hernandez was comfortable shooting people and that he'd gotten cocky because of getting away with prior shootings. Within a few hours of that column being published news broke that Boston police were looking into Hernandez for an unsolved double murder in 2012. 

Tonight Outkick the Coverage broke a story about Urban Meyer turning in a former Florida assistant coach he'd hired for an NCAA violation. 

You might have noticed that the story is running on FoxSports.com. 

That's because Outkick the Coverage and FoxSports.com have entered into a partnership agreeement. OKTC won't change at all, we'll just have a much broader audience. And those times when you try to hop on the site and we're overloaded with traffic and you can't get to our article? 

Yeah, that won't happen again.

Which is why FoxSports.com is hosting our latest story. 

Texas A&M Wedding Wins Internet

Written by: Clay Travis

Texas A&M has proven to be a good fit for the SEC already.

But so far we hadn't had any Aggie fans doing anything that might be described as crazy. Yeah, we had the student who got the A&M-Bama score tattooed on his butt, and we have Johnny Manziel's continued shenanigans.

But what about some good old fashioned dyed in the wool crazy fan antics?

I mean, we know Alabama and Texas A&M are playing college football's biggest regular season game this September.

And we know Alabama fans are crazy as hell.  

But can A&M really give Bama a run in the crazy fan department?

We really haven't seen much to suggest that the answer is yes.

Until now.

Yes, this Texas A&M wedding really happened.  

Congrats to Harv and Heather! 

One year ago today Texas A&M joined the Southeastern Conference. 

If I'd written here one year ago that A&M would have a quarterback win the Heisman trophy, would go 11-2 with a road win over national champion Alabama and a blow out victory over Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, and would announce a $420 million stadium expansion to add 20,000 seats, y'all would have told me I was crazy. 

Yet all that happened. 

Combine that with Kevin Sumlin's recruiting success and a top five 2013 preseason ranking, and It's officially the high water mark of Aggie athletics, it has truly never been better to be an A&M football fan.

How has A&M made this past year the best in the program's history?

Okay, slackers, it's mailbag time.

It's become a routine for me to praise you, but you guys continue to inundate me with great mailbag questions on Twitter and via email. I read everything y'all send me, but if I replied to all of you I'd never do anything else. So, as always, thank you for reading and for sending in such excellent questions.

Our beaver pelt trader(s) of the week is the police department in Massachusetts. They took their time in the Aaron Hernandez investigation and completely and totally nailed him for this murder.

Well done.  

Now, on to the mailbag.

In anticipation of the start of the 100th Tour de France this Saturday, I’d like to share a cycling experience from earlier this spring. The first week of May I rode in the 3 State 3 Mountain Century Challenge in Chattanooga TN, a rather epic 100 mile ride comprised of over 8,000 feet of climb with ascents of three mountains located in three different states. This ride brings 2000+ cyclists to the area every year from over thirty states. Having greatly suffered on this ride last year when I was new to cycling, I had this date circled on the calendar for payback. I was also excited to represent the new race team out of Bear Creek Bikes in Dalton, Ga.
