Johnny Jetski: Manziel Snags Deep Ball

Written by: Clay Travis

Since the NFL made the ridiculous decision to push back the NFL Draft we're still a couple of weeks until the draft. This means there is even more time to talk about who the Houston Texans might take with the overall number one pick in the draft. And if there's one thing we all need, it's more draft talk. (Sports talk radio hosts across America are furious at the NFL for pushing back the draft so we can extend, yet again, the number of calls we receive where we talk about hypothetical draft picks. This is awful, boring radio). 

You know what isn't awful and boring?

Johnny Manziel. 

Nearly a month after his pro day and fresh off debuting a new lady friend at the Texas Rangers game, Manziel took to his jetski to catch a deep bomb.  

This is pretty impressive. 

Meet Johnny Jetski.

Meet the SEC's Best Allies: Lane Kiffin and Texas

Written by: Clay Travis

The BCS has always made for strange bedfellows.

But this year may make for the strangest bedfellows of all, Texas and Lane Kiffin hold the SEC's opportunity to defend six straight BCS titles in the palms of their grimy little hands. Think about this for a minute. Texas is Kansas State's only real threat left on its schedule. (Baylor winning this weekend would be a pretty big upset). Meanwhile, Lane Kiffin has the chance to knock both Notre Dame and Oregon out of the BCS title game in back-to-back weeks.

If Texas and Lane Kiffin's USC take care of business against Kansas State, Oregon, and Notre Dame guess what we're left with -- an all-SEC BCS title game.

Again.

If you are on this website, you're here for one of two reasons: you're either a fan of an SEC school, or you have an unhealthy amount of jealousy or hatred towards the SEC because of the national love fest and perceived dominance of the conference (especially you B1G and Ohio State fans). I happen to be both.

During a recent conversation regarding the Kentucky football team, a friend and I were discussing the possibility of Mike Leach coaching our beloved Wildcats.  My friend suggested UK build a pirate ship in the east end of Commonwealth Stadium to entice Leach, a la the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This past Saturday provided a perfect window into the ongoing battle for the hearts and mind of the football crazy state of Texas. On one side stood the Texas Longhorns and on the other stood the Texas A&M Aggies, each of whom adopted different strategies to grow their brand going forward. Texas gambled that the Longhorn Network would make its program a national brand while A&M gambled that wedding its program to the SEC would provide a larger benefit.

Saturday provided an intriguing examination of the two paths: The Texas Longhorns played an eleven in the morning kickoff against Iowa State in front of a miniscule television audience on the Longhorn Network. Later that day, at 2:30 central, Texas A&M kicked off against the top rated Alabama Crimson Tide nationwide on CBS. While virtually no one could see the Texas game, the A&M game became the second highest rated football game of the season, behind only last week's Alabama-LSU game. 

Today news trickled out about the ratings in individual markets. The state of Texas featured three of the top 12 highest rated television markets in the country for A&M at Alabama. Which Texas city had the highest rating in the state? Austin, which posted a 16.3 rating, the third highest rating in the entire nation. (Dallas and Houston were a robust 10 and 12, respectively).

Remember when Texas athletic director Deloss Dodds said before the season that Texas A&M and the SEC "have a small sliver of the east side?"

Well, he was completely wrong.  

Texas A&M Senior Pays off Bet With Butt Tattoo

Written by: Clay Travis

Yesterday we brought you the story of a college football fan who got the Texas A&M -- Bama score tattooed on his butt. We asked for your help in tracking him down. OKTC readers delivered within five hours when I received the following email.

Subject line: ass tattoo

"This is the guy with the tattoo. I'm not really sure how to approach this."

Meet Calvin N., a senior majoring in business at Texas A&M. What's the story behind the butt tattoo that has taken the Internet by storm? Dive in.

...

Our ass tattoo story begins in the preseason, as all ass tattoo stories do, when Calvin, a lifelong A&M fan who began attending games with his family when he was a young kid, made a bet with his roommates. See, Calvin wasn't very optimistic in the pre-season about A&M's chances in the Aggies first year in the SEC. So he bet his roommates that the Aggies would lose at Alabama. Their bet? The roommates put up $100 if Bama won and Calvin promised that if A&M beat Bama, "I'd get a tattoo of the score on my ass."

"It seemed like a pretty good bet," Calvin said. Although he was a bit worried since, "I honestly hate tattoos."

SEC APOCALYPSE: Vegas Fallout

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

Saturday's upset in Tuscaloosa sent shockwaves through the SEC.  Fallout in the betting world ran deep as well, forcing drastic changes in the college football futures market. What exactly did Alabama's loss mean to the odds to win the BCS? The single result left a few Kansas St backers holding tickets at 100-1 and Notre Dame bettors at 40-1 brimming with new found confidence.

In the classic western Lonesome Dove, there is a wonderful scene where the novel's resident philosopher, Augustus McCrae, implores the beautiful, yet tragic character Lorena, to appreciate the everyday, little things in life, rather than build up big dreams in your head, only to be disappointed in the end. For Gus, those things were a soft mattress and a glass of buttermilk.

Bama Fan Gets A&M Score Tattooed On His Behind

Written by: Clay Travis

Update: we have tracked down the butt tattoo better. And interviewed him. Enjoy. 

So many of you sent me this photo of a fan with the A&M-Bama score tattooed on his behind that I assumed it had to be photoshopped.

Especially since it was first sent to me a couple of hours after the game. But so far it appears to be real.

And spectacular.

So now our OKTC quest is simple, let's find this guy.

Here's where the story first emerged, on Reddit.

(The tattoo is made all the better because the apostrophe is after the 12' as opposed to before it. It's like a beautiful metaphor of Alabama fandom).

We found the cleanest picture of the butt tattoo that we could because otherwise it was just a way too close picture of a guy's hairy butt. Even a gay person like me doesn't want to see that.

Starting 11: SEC Still Alive For BCS Title

Written by: Clay Travis

There are six teams still alive for the BCS title, I'll break down all six teams and their road to the title game below in the Starting 11, but if you're a fan of Kansas State, Oregon, Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida, your teams title chances are still pretty alive.

Everyone else is eliminated from BCS title contention.

In the wake of Alabama's loss to Texas A&M there was a knee jerk reaction from many who argued the SEC's title reign was over. But that's not necessarily true. There's still a pretty good chance that at least one SEC team plays for the title. And there's even a small chance that we still have an all SEC title game.

Let's dive in to the Starting 11 and I'll explain how. But, first, we begin with our old friend the UT fan and his reaction to the Mizzou loss:
