Kentucky Fan Gets Asked to Prom Via Jersey

Written by: Clay Travis

Since Outkick is generally a site that brings you the sweetest, cuddliest, nicest news on the Internet, we thought it was time to remind you that it's prom season across our nation's country. A time when hormone-crazed teenage boys contemplate every possible way to get their dates to sleep with them -- while mostly failing -- and fathers contemplate killing whichever boy shows up to take out their teenage daughter.  

Which brings us to this heartwarming story delivered to Outkick's email:

Will Ernst writes:

"My sister got asked to prom by her boyfriend who made a custom Kentucky jersey. We live in Lincoln, Nebraska now but moved from Kentucky awhile back. Hope you enjoy."

Okay, all together now -- awwwww. 

This is probably the best use of a Kentucky basketball jersey on a white man since Patrick Sparks. 

Congrats, Liz.

Have fun at prom.

(P.S. despite what your date tells you blue balls aren't an actual medical condition.)

Alabama Sends Jon Gruden Endorsement to Recruits

Written by: Clay Travis

On this week's Monday Night Football ESPN's Jon Gruden had this to say about the Alabama Crimson Tide, "This 49ers team is as physical on both sides as anyone. They remind me of how Alabama plays."

A few days later, Alabama is making sure that all of its recruits are aware of the comment as well, mailing out this weekly flier to recruits, which Cecil Hurt tweeted last night.

The straightforward message is simple: Jon Gruden's impressed by how Alabama plays football.

But could it be something more, could this be a subtle recruiting shot at Gruden, Tennessee's top candidate to replace Derek Dooley?

Johnny Manziel Does Work In Scooby Doo Costume

Written by: Clay Travis

Yesterday we had the OKTC Halloween costume contest.

Today, well, today Johnny Football would have been in the running for best costume.

Certainly, that is, if my four and two year old Scooby Doo obsessed kids could vote. (This morning, and I'm not joking, my boys got into an argument over who gets to dress up as Scooby Doo next year for Halloween).

It looks like Aggie girls loved the costume.

Howdy, indeed. (Pronounced by Scooby Doo as Rowdy).

Watch Me Sing Young MC's Bust a Move

Written by: Clay Travis

Saturday night I got went to a Halloween party and decided to karaoke to Young MC's "Bust a Move."

Yes, I was wearing a Stay Puft Marshmallow man t-shirt and a white hat that makes gay sailors everywhere drool with envy.

Proving that everyone on OKTC is equally opportunity -- from stupid Bama fans to me -- have at it. 

It's awkward white rapping time starring me. 

And I think y'all will love this. 

Thanks to my wife for knowing how bad this would be and deciding to record it. While mocking me in real-time. 


Football, betting, sex, and alcohol: the four passions shared by the American male. Trying to rank these 4 is a task rivaled in its complexity by only that of trying to comprehend the intricacies of the BCS. However, what fun is any kind of rankings if there's no level of difficulty to stir debate. Without further fanfare, here are your top ten reasons why betting college football is better than sex. Oh yea, there are game previews as well for those interested in that kind of thing...

Top 12 Halloween Costumes For 2012

Written by: Clay Travis

Halloween is here.

I know because my four year old woke me up this morning screaming, "I get candy today, candy!"

Y'all have been inundating me with your Halloween costumes on Twitter. I've retweeted a bunch of them and tried to save the pictues to my phone as you send them to me. This means that I now don't know who initially sent these to me, but I hope you'll be happy with your pics being in my top 12.

You'll also note that my four year old is ranked. That's the benefits of knowing the site owner.

The NFL’s replacement referees taught NFL fans what the fans of college football already knew. While Steve Young and other NFL commentators, in exasperated tones, expanded their vocabulary to encompass economic principles like ‘inelastic demand’, college football fans should’ve shrugged in indifference to the near tantrums of the talking heads.

I love the work that really talented probabilities guys do with football. (Honestly, I love the work that all probability guys do. That's why I'm currently reading Nate Silver's, The Signal and the Noise, which is fascinating. As a general rule we consistently underrate the likelihood of upsets in college football. Especially with our predictions. 

That's why a guy using probabilities in sports is so fascinating. After all, any sixty minute game is just a small representation of what could have happened in a game. Big upsets are just outliers.  

The guy I love the best of all when it comes to computing sports probabilities is Paul Bessire at Prediction Machine. Paul's method is to input his data to a computer and run his simulations 50,000 times. His outcomes reflect the odds of what will happen in any given game. He then sells betting advice when his formulas show the greatest differential with the existing line.

He's been really successful with his predictions against the spread.

Now that there are four undefeated teams left in major college football -- Alabama, Kansas State, Notre Dame and Oregon -- I wondered what the odds were that all four teams would finish undefeated. So I asked Paul to run the probabilities for me.

And if you're a data geek like me, you're going to love what his results showed.

The result that's the most surprising: It's 15 times as likely that all four of these top teams will lose as it is that all four of these teams will win out.


There is just 1.22% chance that Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State, and Notre Dame all finish undefeated and there is a 15.75% chance that all four teams lose.

But that's just one of the fascinating details that Paul spins out of this year's college football data.

You need to be reading his stuff on a regular basis, and if you're paying for picks, there's no one that's better in the country.

Mizzou Sells T-Shirt After Beating Kentucky

Written by: Clay Travis

Y'all know I loved everything about my trip to Mizzou.

Loved the fans, the town, the stadium atmosphere, everything about the new addition to the SEC.

But Mizzou's football team has been bad this year. Not bad because they joined the SEC, just bad because the Tigers are a bad football team. I still believe that Mizzou will do well in future years in the SEC, but this year is a complete mess.

If you want to feel better about Mizzou's football future, keep in mind that the Tigers will play four of the top eight teams in this week's BCS standings. Losses to Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, coming this weekend, aren't really that bad. Just about every team in the country is losing to these four teams.

The SEC East turned out to be much better than we anticipated and Mizzou was worse.

You also drew Texas A&M on the road for the third straight season, which would ordinarily be fine given the result the past two years except for the fact that Texas A&M is really damn good this year.

Granted, the Vandy loss was a bad one, but Vandy could win seven or eight games this year. Seriously, that really might happen. 

Plus, you'll score a bunch of points on Tennessee next week and if you pulled off an upset over the Vols then the season wouldn't be that bad.

You would have won one game that wasn't expected and lost one game that wasn't expected.

LSU-Alabama CBS Drinking Game: 2012 Edition

Written by: Clay Travis

The CBS drinking game is back.

I know, I know, I've been lax in setting up the games this season. There should have been a drinking game for the big game doubleheader, LSU at Florida and Georgia at South Carolina. And I should have had a drinking game last weekend for the Cocktail Party and...basically I've failed all of you.

I apologize.

As we embark upon the first #cbsdrink of 2012, it's important to know that our game has become so popular that everyone on the telecast is aware of the games. In fact, go to Google right now and type in Verne Lundquist. The third Google autocomplete? Our drinking game. The OKTC crew is a powerful and mischevious lot.

I'll also be at the game, in the press box, which means I won't hear the audio broadcast. So you guys have to be my eyes and ears. This means I need as many of you as possible to be playing along at the hashtag #cbsdrink.

I feel pretty confident that we can make the hashtag trend nationally at some point during the game.

Cheering for Vanderbilt is a little like chasing the dragon, except painfully opposite. Instead of needing more and more success to flood the brain with dopamine, I’ve built up such a tolerance for disappointment that it requires an inordinate amount of failure for me to even feel pain anymore. You know, like when your charismatic new coach, who single-handedly energized a fan base with five decades worth of track marks down their arms, decides to give underachieving Auburn every opportunity to steal a win on the road. Being favored by a whole touchdown pretty much guaranteed that the ‘Dores would drop a steaming black and gold load at some point, so a hard-fought loss to a perennially decent/good team would have only driven me to drink a little more than I would have on a typical Saturday; but cutting the field in half for a struggling offense by refusing to punt when a home win means more than a road loss is inexcusable for a coach who wants to be considered elite. But I digress.
