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.

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?"

The first time I heard of Clay Travis was when I picked up a copy of Dixieland Delight at a local bookstore a few years ago. At the risk of being accused of shamelessly kissing up to the editor of this site, I loved the book and truly envied the fact that he was able to take a road trip throughout the entirety of the SEC.

I once dated a guy named Ted*. [Names changed to protect the innocent. For some reason, the only fake male names I could think of were Marshall and Ted. I really need to broaden my fake male name repertoire for the next column I write that may air any past dating grievances. My reputation is on the line here, and dating a guy named "Ted" does not help my case.]

 At the SEC Network announcement on Thursday, I had the chance to interview Kevin Sumlin. 

You can listen to that entire interview here. I think y'all will enjoy it. Sumlin has rapidly become one of my favorite SEC coaches and we talk about a variety of subjects during the interview. Including Johnny Manziel, the new stadium expansion, recruiting, and what shows Sumlin likes on television.

Sumlin says, "I'm a "Mad Men" guy."

Mad Men is one of my six favorite television shows on the air right now:

1. The Americans

2. Homeland

3. Mad Men -- For those of you who say this is too low, it's not that I presently dislike Mad Men, it's just that I'm more excited to watch the first two shows on this list. 

4. Game of Thrones

5. Modern Family

6. Veep

So of course I want to talk about Mad Men with Sumlin as much as I can. 

My next question was who is Sumlin's favorite character. 

Sumlin's response, "I'd rather stay away from that."

Yep, he declined comment on his favorite Mad Men character. 

 

Charles Ramsey: American Hero

Written by: Clay Travis

 Charles Ramsey is an American hero. 

In a time when most of y'all are focusing on eating ribs and salsa dancing with your neighbors, Ramsey rescued three women who had been kidnapped for a decade. 

I tweeted this out last night, but today I decided that merely Tweeting this out wasn't enough. 

Nope, we had to go ahead and announce that Charles Ramsey is our beaver pelt trader of the week. 

On Tuesday. 

That's how remarkable this interview is. 

Get this man a McDonald's endorsement deal. 

Immediately. 

This is the best thing since the buttchugger video.

SEC Network Opens New Era in College Athletics

Written by: Clay Travis

On Thursday the SEC and ESPN officially unveiled the newest big moneymaker in college athletics, a 24/7 SEC Network. 

The biggest news from the event was that the network will carry 45 football games a year, a daily tripleheader. Of course, OKTC readers have known that was likely for over a year now. 

But what other news came out of the event? And what should SEC fans want and need to know about the SEC Network going forward?

All That and a Bag of Mail: SEC Network Edition

Written by: Clay Travis

By the time y'all read this I'll be on the road with 3HL to broadcast our Friday show from the Clippers-Grizzlies playoff game in Memphis.

So I'm drafting the mailbag after a long day spent in Atlanta at the official announcement for the SEC Network.

Next week I'll give y'all a good rundown of the SEC Network and all the major details surrounding that network's launch. In the meantime, the biggest news from the announcement is that 45 football games will air on the network. OKTC told you a year ago that between 40 and 50 games were likely to air on the network.

And that ESPN owns 100% of the network, which means the SEC has to be receiving a guaranteed payment that is mind-boggling.

An ESPN guarantee of $500 million a year wouldn't surprise me, potentially more.

In the meantime, my beaver pelt trader of the week award goes to the writers for "The Americans." The season finale was absolutely spectacular. Seriously, beyond extraordinary. You need to be watching this show. It's only 13 episodes long after its first season and it has now become my favorite show on television.

I'm hoping they don't have a "Homeland"-esque trip up with season two.

Also, as Jason Whitlock Tweeted me Thursday night, we may have a looming Dana-daughter situation on "The Americans."

I can barely handle one spy/terrorist's daughter ruining a great show, if we end up with two?

Shudder.

On to the mailbag.

A month ago Clay and I were discussing how best to entertain you all until football season starts again. I suggested he send me to the Masters, but Clay was doubtful they'd give OKTC a press pass. (Golf- so stuffy.) Instead he decides on The Interstate Mullet Toss and Gulf Coast's Greatest Beach Party at Flora-Bama Lounge, Package and Oyster Bar on the Florida-Alabama line. Mullets and a beach party? IN. I invite my friends Ruthie and April, who will come in handy as photographers and body guards. 

Yesterday NBA free agent center Jason Collins announced he was gay.

As part of that announcement ESPN decided to have gay basketball writer LZ Granderson and NBA analyst Chris Broussard on to discuss the announcement.

It did not go well.

Primarily because Broussard, speaking for many who share the same view, said he couldn't support Collins's decision because he believed being gay was a sin. In particular, Broussard said, "I'm a Christian. I don't agree with homosexuality. I think it's a sin, as I think all sex outside of marriage between a man and a woman is."

Broussard continued, "If you're openly living that type of lifestyle, the Bible says you know them by their fruits, it says that that's a sin. If you're openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, I believe that's walking in open rebellion to God and Jesus Christ."
