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.

Mike Gundy is 45, but he's not a man

Written by: Clay Travis

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy has become the latest petty dictator coach to excercise complete and total power and restrict where a player can transfer.

This time it's quarterback Wes Lunt, a former four star recruit who started several games as a freshman at Oklahoma State, before deciding he wanted to transfer this spring. So what was Gundy's response when Lunt told him he wanted to transfer? Gundy told Lunt that would be fine, but that he wasn't allowed to transfer to any Big 12 school or any school that was presently on future schedules. That's a pretty standard restriction. If that's where Gundy's transfer restrictions ended, this wouldn't be a story. 

But those restrictions weren't enough for Gundy, no, he had to exercise complete and total dictatorial powers. 

He had to punish a player with the temerity to leave his program. 

Gundy also restricted Lunt from transferring to any SEC or Pac 12 school. Southern Miss too, where offfensive coordinator Todd Monken has recently taken over the head coaching job.

Talk about petty.

It's no secret that Johnny Manziel is Outkick the Coverage's favorite SEC football player of all time. 

But even we continue to be amazed by his feats of athletic excellence.

Last night he homered during San Diego Padres batting practice while wearing jeans and boat shoes. Then he executed one of the most amazing first pitches in history.

How so?

He reenacted his fumbled touchdown pass against Alabama.

Really, he did.


The Four Star, the Porn Star and Me

Written by: Clay Travis

Yesterday Outkick the Coverage brought you the touching story of Elisha Shaw, the four star defensive tackle recruit who Tweeted out that he wanted a fifth star. 

The only catch?

His screen grab revealed that he was watching porn star Isis Taylor in another screen. 

Last night Isis Taylor, a big USC Trojan fan as you can see, retweeted Outkick's story. 

I shot her a message that said, "I think you could get him to SC. Y'all need help in the trenches."

Player Requests Fifth Star, Loves Porn

Written by: Clay Travis

Getting a fifth star is incredibly competitive. You have to put up big stats, have all the measurables, flaunt your offers, do whatever it takes to get that fifth star. 

Including, sometimes, emailing or Tweeting the rating services themselves and personally making your case for that fifth star. 

Which brings us to 6'5" 295 pound defensive tackle Elisha Shaw. Both Rivals and 247 Sports have him ranked as a four star, just on the outskirts of receiving his fifth star. Rivals has him as the 39th best player in the 2014 class, with offers from Alabama, Florida State, Texas, and Georgia, among others.

247 Sports has him as the 42nd best player in the country. 

So he's really close to that tantalizing fifth star on both major recruiting services. 

Yesterday as part of the most visited day in Outkick the Coverage history, we brought you the story of the Steeplechase catfight. 

Then we followed up with a director's cut piece, which provided the definitive view of the entire melee.

Shortly after we posted the definitive version of the catfight, who reached out and contacted OKTC?

The girl in the pink dress.

She wanted to tell her side of the story.  

Steeplechase CatFight: Director's Cut

Written by: Clay Travis

 Earlier today Outkick the Coverage brought you the Steeplechase catfight

Almost immediately, our servers buckled as you all rushed to view the video.

Since then y'all have inundated my Twitter feed with commentary. I don't remember the last time I laughed this much at your Tweets. Slowly, like a modern day version of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew put together, we've all put on our thinking caps to decipher this caper.  

First we found out that Vanderbilt center Joe Townsend, the heretofore anonymous man carrying a football as he broke up a catfight, was a hero. That's him pictured above via a Tweet sent to me from teammate Walker May -- "The catfight hero himself. Honored to be in his presence today."

Later we found out that a spontaneous USA chant had broken out, and that there appeared to a mysterious filmer who never moved as he leaned up against a truck in rolled up khakis boat shoes, the Steeplechase catfight's own mysterious grassy knoll.

Well, a few minutes ago the grassy knoller/truck leaner emailed.  

"Despite your observation I was quite comfortable posted up like captain Morgan on the truck," he wrote. 

Nashville's Iroquois Steeplechase: CatFight!

Written by: Clay Travis

Nashville's Iroquois Steeplechase is typically a pretty high-end affair. Women wear sundresses, men wear pastels, all of the proceeds from the city's largest horse race of the year benefit the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, and everyone drinks heavily and has a great time. 

Honestly, it's a lot like an SEC football spring game, with every fan base represented among the 30,000 or so attendees. Buddies from Kentucky have described Steeplechase as like the Kentucky Derby, but without all the trashy people.

So you know what happened on Saturday near the end of the day's party on the infield, don't you?

Yep, catfight!

Today is Southern girls behaving badly day on OKTC. 

Let's go to the video.  

Ah, the University of Tennessee, where ridiculous happens.

The latest absurdity?

University officials are conducting an investigation to determine whether a former head of student judicial services, Jenny Wright, a graduate of both the undergrad and the law school at Tennessee, had multiple inappropriate relationships with some of the student-athletes she was charged with judging. According to the Twitter account of Knoxville radio host Jimmy Hyams recently departed Vol point guard Trae Golden, whose mysterious dismissal purportedly involved academic issues, is among those players involved in the investigation. 

News broke today that Wright had been fired as a result of her failure to cooperate with an independent investigation into whether she had inappropriate relationships with athletes. Wright, who attempted to resign from her position but was fired from her $70,000 a year job instead, has hired an attorney who categorically denied that she had done anything improper.

In the meantime, Tennessee has already removed her name from the Student Judicial Affairs website, listing her position as vacant.

Wright quickly scrubbed her Facebook and Twitter accounts, but she was not able to erase this repository of her Twitter account you can find here.

The account contains fifteen photos and many recent Tweets. 

In the bio section of the account Wright described herself thusly, "Three-time alumna and proud employee of the University of Tennessee...All Vol!!!"

She also listed a husband on the account, but reports are that Wright was recently divorced.  

Football is only a few months away and Cantor Gaming has released their NFL regular season win totals; your complete list.

It's Friday, you're not working and eagerly awaiting the mailbag.

So let's get rolling.

Yet again, y'all have killed it.

This week there's no suspense, the beaver pelt trader of the week is Cleveland hero Charles Ramsey.

It's a dead giveaway.

Now let's dive into the mailbag.

"This year's Kentucky Derby got me thinking... Yes, if your horse wins, the payout is awesome. However the big money is made after the fact. Dan Patrick interviewed Dan Oneil (trainer for I'll Have Another). Oneil said the stag/mate fee with his horse is $40k for one hit. So I ask why not farm out athlete sperm? Lebron, Kobe, Phelps, Brady? You think there would be suitors?"
