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.

by P. Joseph Donovan Second best isn’t that bad. It gets you a silver medal (the Olympics), a BJ (sex), or $67 billion (Bill Gates). In College Football, second place gets you a sizeable slice of what is now the second most popular sport in America. That’s actually kind of zen, now that I think about it.    The SEC is the consensus number one football conference in America; that much should be clear. In the past seven years the SEC has won seven National Championships. In 2013 the SEC recorded 63 total draft picks, including 12 in the first round. The SEC West tied the ACC for second place with 31 draft picks. The SEC had four teams with eight or more picks (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and LSU). By comparison, the "well-balanced" Big 12 had only 22 players drafted- fewer than the top three SEC teams.  “But wait, eight of the ten Big 12 Teams [pause for laughter] went to a bowl game!”   First of all, nobody cares about bowl games. The “Beef-O’Brady Bowl” sounds like an experimental sex-move you would try on a fat chick just to see if she would let you. Second, let’s indulge Big Game Bob for a moment and compare apples to apples. How do the bottom six SEC teams stack up against the bottom six Big 12 teams in the NFL draft? Well, predictably, the SEC had 33% more players drafted than the Big 12 did (12 from the SEC compared to 9 from the Big 12). The NFL also drafted far more elite players from the "weak" SEC schools. The bottom of the SEC produced seven players that went in the first three rounds: two 1st rounders, one 2nd rounder, and four 3rd rounders.  Meanwhile, the bottom of the Big 12 produced only four such players: one 1 first rounder, 1 second rounder, and 2 third rounders.  So while the top of the SEC utterly annihilated the top of the Big 12 (producing far more draft picks than the entire Big 12 combined), the bottom of the SEC merely dominated the bottom of the Big 12.

But yeah, it’s just propaganda, Bob Stoops.

AJ McCarron and the Ole Miss Playboy Model

Written by: Clay Travis

Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has become a bona fide star in the last six months. His girlfriend, Katherine Webb, has also parlayed her BCS title fame into something of a career, she's now famous for being famous and this leads to appearances and attention across the country. 

But all has not been perfect for the Romeo and Juliet of the South, who Outkick the Coverage introduced you to back in December, when Webb had just 180 Twitter followers.

You see, the couple has a bit of a mess on their hands, a third wheel in their star-crossed relationship. 

And that third wheel just happens to be an erstwhile Ole Miss student who posed in the SEC girls edition of Playboy. 

An Ole Miss Playboy model student who AJ met on the sideline at last year's Ole Miss game -- Joe Namath approves -- and who spent the night at AJ's house in Tuscaloosa over the weekend.

Uh oh, scandalous. 

So how in the world did this become a story?  

Bret Bielema met his wife Jen at a Las Vegas blackjack table. 

That fact alone immediately endeared him to Outkick the Coverage. Since then Bielema has taken a shot at Nick Saban and said the Big Ten was jealous of the SEC. 

So he's quickly become one of our favorite coaches in the country who's not named Kliff Kingsbury. 

We already had zero doubt that Bielema outkicked his coverage with a massive 90 yard punt. 

That's why we'd previously inducted Bielema into the Outick the Coverage hall of fame

But we hadn't really made that big of a deal of Jen Bielema before because you guys hadn't really inundated us with her picture before.

Then Jen Bielema went to Las Vegas with friends this past weekend.   

It's Friday, y'all aren't working and it's time to dive into yet another mailbag. 

I praise you guys pretty frequently, but, honestly, the mailbag questions just get better and better. So do the readership numbers. The mailbag is the most consistently popular thing we do at OKTC and it's because you guys are asking great questions and also sharing it with your friends and co-workers. 

Plus, it helps that no one wants to do actual work on Friday. 

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is easy, our buddy Orlando Shaw and his 14 baby mommas. 

On to the mailbag. 

College Football Games of the Year

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

Today is a major summer milestone on the sports betting calendar in Las Vegas. For the 7th straight year, the Golden Nugget is opening their menu of college football game of the year lines before anyone else in the city. The 248 games that include some of the season's most high profile contests will be available for wagering starting Friday afternoon at the legendary downtown hotel.  As far as college football bettors are concerned, this marks the unofficial beginning of college football season from a betting perspective.

Orlando Shaw Has 22 Children By 14 Women

Written by: Clay Travis

Orlando Shaw has 22 children by 14 different women. 

The local Nashville CBS station caught up with him outside the Metro Courthouse and conducted an interview about how this could happen.

The result?

Interview gold.  

You're going to want to watch again and again. 

Because it is completely and totally spectacular. 

There are so many amazing things about this video, but I want you to watch it before you read my breakdown. 

Your Wednesday is about to be made. 

Last night's Game 7 had as much suspense as a cobra fighting a mouse. 

The Miami Heat took total control in the second quarter and from there it was pretty much a blowout.

So who ended up stealing the show?

Justin Bieber and the worst celebrity outfit in the history of NBA courtside seats.

Much to the chagrin of Bieber's fans -- who took to Twitter to harass me after I posted this picture -- Bieber could not have looked worse.  

Yep, it's time for awkward fan photos starring Justin Bieber.

How do I love this outfit? Let me count the 19 ways. 

Yes, this outfit really happened. 

Gordon Gee, Catholics, and Checklist America

I'm a gay Muslim on Twitter and Outkick the Coverage. 

Why?

For two reasons: 1. to coopt the stupidity of consistent "your gay' taunts on social media and embrace my gayness and 2. because it illuminates the continuing stupidity of the American social discourse. That is, we use the speaker's background as de facto freedom of speech. 

A gay Muslim in America can truly get away with saying anything, you're simultaneously the most free and the most reviled in our modern society. That's a trade that's worth making for me. I get the creative freedom to write and talk in areas that others can't touch and at the same time I can embrace the hate that comes with that position.

In today's America, if you're a member of multiple minority groups you have different rules for what you can write and say than if you aren't a member of these groups.

So I'm a proud gay muslim.  

Otherwise you need an ethnicity scorecard these days to figure out whether or not someone can say or write what they think about an issue.

Photos have finally surfaced of AJ McCarron's tattoo that features the Mobile skyline

And they are glorious.

McCarron's tattoo is fabulous, a true work of art. 

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Bosinian farmer Blazo Grkovic who strangled a bear to death with his bare hands when it attacked him.

You'll recall that we previously discussed in the mailbag what animal the average man could kill with his bare hands.

I guessed a cow.

But Blazo Grkovic took down a bear. 

Why Doesn't ESPN Buy CBS's SEC Package?

Written by: Clay Travis

Ask anyone involved in televised sports what the best current television deal in sports is and the answer is unanimous -- CBS's first round SEC draft pick each week along with the SEC championship game for just $55 million a year. 

It's a complete and total steal -- CBS has the best deal in sports. 

Break down the deal and CBS is paying just $3.43 million per SEC game. That compares with ESPN paying over $100 million per game for Monday Night Football. Okay, but that's pro football. Well, ESPN pays the Rose Bowl $80 million a year for just one game.

So CBS gets sixteen total first pick SEC games (there are two doubleheaders each year), including the SEC championship game, for $25 million a year less than ESPN pays for the Rose Bowl by itself.

Wow.  

The SEC on CBS's deal is complete and total insanity, a bargain unlike any other, like buying Manhattan for trinkets. And this deal continues for another decade, meaning that today's numbers, which already look like the television deal of the century, will come to look even more cheap as the years continue to tick by. 

Which brings me to an interesting question, why doesn't ESPN buy the SEC's rights package from CBS?
