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.)

Nick Saban's Alabama football team has been favored in every game since the SEC title game in 2009. You know, the game when Saban's Crimson Tide hordes made Tim Tebow cry. Coming into this game Michigan fans felt like they had a chance to pull off an upset. An upset that would go a long way towards validating last year's Wolverine renaissance and an upset that would be a powerful Big Ten uppercut to the SEC's run of dominance. Unfortunately for Michigan fans, my wife included, UM played the role of the mouse in a fight with a cobra.

After about ten minutes of football there wasn't any question about whether or not the Wolverines could pull off the upset, the only question was how badly would Alabama beat them?

Thirty-one points later, when the SEC chant broke out in Jerry's Dome with four minutes and thirty one seconds remaining in the second quarter, lots of Michigan fans were left wondering, why in the world did I make the trip all the way to Dallas?

Meanwhile, Big Ten fans were left in a familiar position, making excuses about why the total and complete domination of one of their top teams on the field isn't as total or as complete as you think.

No, you see, say misguided Big Ten fans, we're the equal of the top SEC teams.

College football storms out of the box faster than Seabiscuit at Santa Anita when Michigan meets Alabama in the prized week one duel. JerryWorld in Dallas is the stage Saturday evening where two heavy weights attempt to set the BCS championship tone for 2012-13. Expectations are high for the Wolverines’ coming into the season after an 11-win campaign in 2011-12. Brady Hoke has maize and blue faithful thinking National Championship, but that’s facetious thinking in my estimation. Michigan returns 13 starters from a team that caught all the breaks a season ago. They won every close game (those decided by 7 or less), while winning the turnover battle with a +7 differential. The schedule was cupcake city early on, where a young Michigan team was afforded the luxury of learning a new system on the fly. They started 5-0 (all home games), against teams that finished a combined 32-31 last season. Four of their toughest games against Notre Dame, Ohio State, Purdue and Nebraska were also played in the comfy confines of The Big House. This year, those four teams will be hosting Michigan while salivating at thought of revenge. Despite coming away victorious in the Sugar Bowl against Virginia Tech, it was quite an anomaly. Beamer’s boys out gained Michigan 2 to 1, holding the Wolverines’ to just 184 total yards. They were out rushed 3 to 1. V-Tech had 10 more first downs. To this day, every time I see the score of that game I think my mind is playing tricks on me. Michigan might be in the hunt for a Big Ten title, but they have no shot at a National Championship - don’t think they come close to matching last season’s eleven wins, either. I have them rated 19th in my initial power ratings, and one of the sharpest betting syndicates I speak with has them barely inside the top 25. Regression is imminent for Brady Hoke in his sophomore season at Ann Arbor.

Vols, Cordarrelle Patterson Drench Wolfpack

Written by: Clay Travis


Tonight Derek Dooley debuted a new outfit, a massive white smock that seemed designed, if necessary, to stamp out any flames emerging from his hot seat.

That or to allow him to eschew halftime talks in favor of expressionist paintings.

He also wore boat shoes, which even when Dooley caught his feet in the turf and took a tumble, had a calming effect. Even as ESPN piped in its talking heads debating what would happen if Dooley lost this game, the Volunteer head coach was too busy bopping to his own island beat to notice. Boat shoes, a loose smock, and orange pants, meet devil may care Derek, just back from buying a round of bushwackers for his boating friends at the island bar. I halfway expected for Jimmy Buffett to be piped into the headset during stoppage in play.

He may not have had a cheeseburger in paradise, but he did have a Bray in Atlanta, which would do for a night.

Yep, Southern hippie Dooley was going to his happy place, a sideline that suddenly hummed with new offensive weapons. Not least of those weapons was junior college wide receiver Cordarelle Patterson, a five-star recruit whose services Dooley lined up by giving a graduate assistant job to his former coach. As bargains go, about halfway through the first quarter, this looked like the best deal since Auburn paid off the Newton family.

I'm just about to hop in a car and head to Atlanta for the Tennessee-N.C. State game in the Georgia Dome. We'll be broadcasting at the TacoMac on Peachtree for anyone in town who wants to swing by and say hi. But your Friday is about to get infinitely better. Thanks to Kent State linebacker Andre Parker.

Seriously, I can't stop watching this video. The best part -- and I hesitate to call any one part of this highlight the "best" because there are so many small details that are amazing -- is the stiff arm that he throws as he turns up field headed in the wrong direction. That and the convoy of blockers he has leading his way. Oh, and the number of Towson players doing their damnedest to tackle him before he reaches Towson's end zone. 

It's an upside down world. 

Thank you college football, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

College football returns this week, and I can already tell you who’s going to win this year’s BCS National Championship. 


Every time I see SEC commissioner Mike Slive at big games, he tells me the same thing, he's not rooting for either team, he's just rooting for the officials.

On Thursday night en route to a South Carolina 17-13 victory, Slive's team lost.

SEC officials missed a crucial and clear pass interference call that would have given Vanderbilt a first down at the South Carolina 47. Would the Commodores have scored a touchdown to win? Maybe not, but we'll never know.

Instead fans left fuming over the latest, greatest near miss Vanderbilt Commodore upset victory.

For his part, Vandy receiver Jordan Matthews, who produced a game high eight catches for 147 yards, dodged the controversy. "I'm not going to comment on any calls...I've got to get more open."

James Franklin was less direct, but more effective, in his criticism, "You did know the SEC just came out with very clear rules about talking about the officials and what happens after games. Trying to get me fined?"

All That and a Bag of Mail: The Season Is Here!

Written by: Clay Travis

The season is here!

The season is here!

And Alabama fans are still dumb.

Really dumb. We'll dive in to this picture in a moment. Credit goes to @thejuiceisgood and several of you on Twitter on who ensure that I never miss anything.

The mailbag here a day early. That's because I'll be at Vandy-South Carolina this afternoon -- you can catch my debut as the ugliest pregame sideline reporter in history on NBC Sports Network at 6 et, 5 ct -- and then I'll be driving down to do 3HL from Atlanta -- we'll be at the TacoMac on Peachtree -- followed by more pregame sideline reporting for UT-N.C. State. The next morning I wake up and hop a flight to Dallas to go see Alabama-Michigan. So, yeah, this is pretty much the best tripleheader of my life.

Todd Fuhrman From Vegas: Week One

Written by: Clay Travis

We've waited long enough for college football to resume and tonight the 2012 season kicks off highlighted by an SEC East showdown in Nashville. Throughout the season our goal at OKTC is to expand your gambling knowledge base and provide a perspective on football often ignored by the mainstream media.  As a former bookmaker and man with a plan here in Vegas, my goal is gather all the pertinent content from the front lines and disseminate that to everyone in this space. Sure, the lines don't tell the entire story, however, knowing who my colleagues have their eyes on each week will give you a better idea of what to expect on any given weekend this fall.

This week we caught up with the head linesmaker from Betonline Dave Mason to pick his brain about Week 1 of the college football season and what the early betting patterns tell us about the upcoming games.

Vinnie Verno Is Back for 2012

Written by: Clay Travis

Ah, college football. Did anyone else wake up with an erection this morning? You didn't? Me either. I can't believe some people do that on the first day of the season. Total weirdos.

Like our boy Vinnie Verno.

Yep, he's back for this season.

And I know y'all have been waiting to make your bets until you heard his picks on UT-N.C. State, Bama-Michigan, and Auburn-Clemson.

Dive in here.

It's good as ever.

Better, even.

(Click pause on the right side of the screen, and dive right in to Vinnie's picks that will make you insanely wealthy.)

So far Missouri fans have dodged most of the awkward fan photo collections.

Sure, we had to use this awesome guy as the graphic for this video.

But boy does Mizzou do videos.

And badly.

Although, to be fair, the idea of putting girls in a boat in a cornfield was kind of brilliant. And 1960's football trash talk? It's positively Ole Missian.

Plus, the video work here isn't cheap, there was actual effort put into this production.

Which might make things even worse.

Finally, the song dwells right on the border between satire and reality. It's not quite satire and it's not quite real. It's like a country song on mushrooms.

But you know who loves this video? That mullet-haired shirtless Mizzou fan with the badass tattoo on his left forearm. He's holding up the Holiday Inn cup because that's where he contracted syphilis the first time in 1974.

And, am I the only person wondering where this was taken?

Also, with a mustache like this, if you were born in Missouri in any year since 1974 and aren't sure who your dad is, this guy is at the top of the leaderboard.

(FYI, click pause in the OKTC videos on the right side. We're going to get the autoplay figured out, but I want to make sure you don't miss these lyrics.)
