Why Doesn't Fox, CBS, Turner or NBC Buy the WWE?

Written by: Clay Travis

Last week, as it is virtually every week, the WWE's "Monday Night Raw" was one of the most watched television shows on cable, posting the second, third and fourth most watched hours on cable television. The only cable hour that had more viewers was HBO's "Game of Thrones." The WWE beat every NBA playoff game on cable by nearly a million viewers. Look at the ratings and it's readily apparent, the WWE brings big time viewers. Interestingly enough the WWE is also in the midst of negotiating new television rights deals, aiming for in the neighborhood of $200 million a year, a big increase over the $139.5 million a year which the WWE currently receives from its broadcast partners.

Why the big increase?

Because sports on television means big ratings. (Yes, I'm counting the WWE as a sport). Ninety percent of the WWE's viewers watch live. Right now the WWE's television package, in addition to Monday Night's "Raw," includes Syfy’s “Friday Night SmackDown,” “Main Event” on ION Television, the CW’s “Saturday Morning Slam” and the reality show “Total Divas” on E! That's a lot of programming. I've been paying a lot of attention to the WWE recently and, full disclosure, I am a shareholder in the company. (There's nothing like telling your wife that you've invested part of your retirement savings in the WWE). With the launch of their new over-the-top network. I wrote about the WWE network extensively a couple of weeks ago.

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.

Trying to Make Sense of Aaron Hernandez

Written by: Clay Travis

Aaron Hernandez stands a very good chance of spending the rest of his life in prison. It's a remarkable fall for a guy who signed a five year $37.5 million contract extension last year. Early this morning news also broke that police are investigating Hernandez in connection with a double murder in Boston last year.

If you guys are at all like me -- and unfortunately for your employers many of you are -- you have tons of questions about the Aaron Hernandez case. 

So let's dive in and examine the case against Hernandez and several remaining questions. 

We all know Hernandez is dumb, but does he have any legitimate defenses to the murder charge? What do we still need to know?

Aaron Hernandez Charged With First Degree Murder

Written by: Clay Travis

Today Aaron Hernandez was arrested and charged with first degree murder. The judge denied his defense attorney's request for bail. 

Based on the evidence laid out by the prosecution -- both video surveillance and text message -- prosecutors can place Hernandez at the murder scene at the time of death. 

Assuming this video and text evidence is admissible at trial, Hernandez has only two real lines fo defense: a. he didn't pull the trigger and/or b. someone else killed the victim after they dropped him off at the scene.

Both of these defenses are incredibly weak, especially in light of the shell casings that they found in one of the rental cars. 

Indeed, the scope and breadth of the police work in this case is astoundingly detailed.  

This was not a slipshod job. 

Former Oregon Coach Chip Kelly Wins Again

Written by: Clay Travis

The news is officially out concerning the 27 month, 27 month!, NCAA investigation into Oregon's improper relationship with a recruiting service. 

And, no surprise, the practical impact on the Oregon football team is negligible, no bowl ban, no significant scholarship reductions, just a slap on the wrist. 

The biggest punishment is for Chip Kelly, who received an 18 month show cause penalty. 

Except, you guessed it, Chip Kelly already skipped town, signing a $32.5 million dollar contract to coach in the NFL. That contract doubled Kelly's Oregon salary. The result? Kelly will make a cool $9.75 million while serving out that 18 month show cause penalty.

How will he ever survive the cold Philly winter making only $540,000 a month while on NCAA probation?
