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.

Snoop Dogg's Son Is a Four Star Football Recruit

Written by: Clay Travis

Ever see Snoop Dogg strutting across the stage and think, "Snoop's got some decent height and if he wasn't so high all the time, he might have pretty good motor skills."

Well, you were right. 

Meet Cordell Broadus, Snoop's son, who is a four-star, ranked #88 overall, in the class of 2015 by 24/7 Sports.

The Doggfather's son already has ten scholarship offers from USC, LSU, Tennessee, Duke, California, and UCLA among others. 

Yesterday afternoon news officially broke that ESPN had signed Paul Finebaum to a five year contract. The deal calls for 100 TV appearances a year and a simulcast of Finebaum's radio show on the upcoming SEC Network, set to debut in August of 2014.

It's a smart decision that fills up several hours of programming year-around on the upcoming SEC Network. Putting radio shows on television works pretty well already and is a cost-effective duality. ESPN pioneered the strategy in sports with multiple shows now airing daily and NBC and CBS have followed up on the decision, placing Dan Patrick and Tim Brando front and center on the NBC Sports Network and the CBS Sports Network. It would be a pretty big shocker if Fox didn't also have a radio show on television when FoxSports1 and FoxSports2 debut this August.   

But the biggest aspect of this deal is the message that the SEC is sending to the college sports universe. 

Vandy offensive line coach Herb Hand is a great guy and a fun Twitter follow. You can follow him on Twitter here. But yesterday Hand came face to face with the newest Twitter foil, someone who chose to Tweet obscene insults about his family.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the continued devolution of Twitter discourse. After all, Facebook is rapidly losing its popularity with the idiots out there, and those idiots have to go somewhere on the Internet. Of late they've picked Twitter. And I'm now to the point where I think you should have to pass a basic intelligence test to be allowed to Tweet. 

Recently, the number of people on Twitter who go after wives and kids is downright scary. 

Hell, even the mob leaves families alone.

But some on Twitter have a moral code that would even make mob bosses blush.  

Yesterday @julianbucio, a University of Tennessee fan who happens to be one of 100 or so people I have ever blocked on Twitter because he sent me similar messages attacking my family, Tweeted this to Coach Hand, "dude I think your wife is f---ing someone while you coach your pathetic football team. #slut"

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.

Watch.  

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.
