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.

The important thing to know about everyone who lives in the state of Ohio is this -- every single person who lives in the state of Ohio actually wishes they lived somewhere else.

Every. Single. One. 

Once you realize this fact the peculiar mindset of Ohio State fans -- boastful self-loathing -- makes complete and total sense. 

This self-loathing is so pronounced and unacknowledged that it leads to a perverse boastful pride in the state institution that most Ohioans are not smart enough to actually get into -- The Ohio State University.

You know a state and a university feel left behind by the rest of the country when the most common word in the English language in front of your school's name is a BIG DEAL -- it's THE Ohio State University, whose fans lead the nation in THE herpes and THE failed GED tests.

The other important thing to know about the state of Ohio is that every successful person who is from Ohio has either moved to Chicago or the South.  

This secretly infuriates the people who are left behind in Ohio. Especially in a social media age when you can see how much more fun everyone else is having and you're left paying $200 for a Craig Krenzel autograph at a Sandusky Econo Lodge.  

Starting 11: Lane Kiffin Fired Edition

Written by: Clay Travis

September is not even over yet and we already have two coaches fired, USC's Lane Kiffin and UConn's Paul Pasqualoni.  

Kiffin, in particular, was number one in the country thirteen months ago. 

Now he's fired. 

The two most important things in college football are the coach and the quarterback. 

And now the big question is how good of a hiring decision can USC make?

John Daly Tees Off Via Tee in Guy's Mouth

Written by: Clay Travis

You never know what's going to happen on a random Nashville Sunday night.

Maybe you head out to Losers bar in midtown and John Daly is there. And somehow or other you end up deciding to lay on the ground, hold a tee in your mouth, and let him drive a golf ball. 

Several things to note about this video. 

1. Daly's in flip flops and what appears to be double Arkansas gear. 

He's also wearing a white glove. Grip is important when a bad drive could kill a man. 

2. This is a busy residential and commercial area, there's no telling where this drive ended up.

Some poor bastard out for a jog might have just taken a 300 yard John Daly drive off the forehead. 

3. The guy with the tee in his mouth didn't even flinch.

That's impressive as hell standing alone.

4. His golf bag is behind him.

Did he consider laying up with the three wood? 

5. This appears to be 100% real.

Given that it's the Internet, sure, everything could be faked, but this certainly looks real. 

Daly just Tweeted about the drive and posted his own video. It's Nashville's Midtown and there are multiple videos up.  

This is like a modern day golfing William Tell.


Bret Bielema Takes a Fall Before Texas A&M Game

Written by: Clay Travis

First year Arkansas coach Bret Bielema is playing against his first top ten opponent with Texas A&M rolling into Fayetteville.

Hopefully the game goes better than Bielema's performance on the Hog Walk this afternoon.

I hesitate to point out that this might be the karmic result of Jen Bielema tweeting out #karma after the Wisconsin loss, but is there any doubt this is the case?

I honestly have no idea how Bielema managed to fall here, but the result is extraordinarily awkward.  

And you'll probably want to watch over and over again. 

The palms on the pavement to brace the fall just kills me. So does the fact that Bielema is wearing headphones. Does the coach need to get psyched up for the game too?

I also love the crowd reaction to the fall and the Bielema fist pump recovery. 

Simply stupendous.

Outkick the Podcast with Joe Namath

Written by: Clay Travis

This week I had the good fortune to spend over an hour talking with football legend Joe Namath on our Outkick the podcast. 

It's a spectacular listen, not because of anything I did, but because Namath was such a scintillating guest.

You can listen to the podcast here. 

Namath talked about his time playing for Alabama's legendary head coach Bear Bryant -- who once lifted him off the ground at practice for not looking him in the eye -- and even discussed what it was like to be on campus when George Wallace was standing in front of the schoolhouse door.    From racial issues in the deep South at a time of cultural conflict, to how he began experimenting with hard liquor to help dull the pain of football injuries, Namath was completely and totally forthcoming, answering questions with spectacular sound bites and vivid detail.

It's Mailbag time.

That means it's Friday at work and all of you are pretending to work while you read along with the mailbag.

As you can see, Katherine Webb continues to struggle to recover from Brent Musburger calling her hot. I just don't know how she gets out of bed in the morning. 

She's now spoofing her fame by filming a commercial at the Rose Bowl.

Our beaver pelt traders of the week are these Arkansas frat guys who just executed one of the most amazing trick shots in the history of basketball.   


And be amazed. 

I fully expect Marshall Henderson to party here when Ole Miss plays at Arkansas. 

My Week Five 2013 Picks and Viewer Guide

Written by: Clay Travis

It was a rough weekend. 

The picks went 3-3, but we lost two pretty tough games, first we had 47.5 on the Tennessee at Florida game and the game ended up at 48. 


Then LSU came out and dominated Auburn, but was content with a double digit margin and didn't really open up the playbook that much once it was 21-0. 

As a result, a complete push.

The picks are now 14-11 on the season, or 56% winners. 

With that in mind we dive once more into the games and keep waiting for the games to break completely our way. 

Here we go:


It's time for another week of DraftDay challenges.

So far Outkick the Coverage readers have won over $2,000 playing along with me at DraftDay.

With weekly fantasy football you can legally wager on your team and win money along the way. One of you guys has already won big.

Best part of it all?

Each week is a new season.

You don't have to scour the waiver wire or take a beating each week if your fantasy team has injuries. You can pick the best players with the best value attached to them and win money.  

Richard Deitsch is Sports Illustrated's sports media critic.

Despite loving Paul Finebaum with every fiber of his being, he doesn't like me very much.

That's life.

After a few Twitter flare-ups between us, I suggested that Richard come on the Outkick podcast. He declined, requesting a neutral podcast. 

So we decided to have a media debate, presidential candidate style. Our moderator was Amy Goodwin.

And, yes, I almost lost it when Amy announced that I'd won the coin toss to get the first debate question.

You can listen here.

We covered a ton of topics, including the future of sports media, my belief that Ohio State would be the seventh or eighth best team in the SEC, responsibility and ethics in online media, Richard namedropped Rupert Murdoch a ton, Outkick the Coverage's editorial decision-making as it pertains to a potential beheading, would Kate Upton be on the cover of Sports Illustrated if she had small boobs, Journalism with a capital J, and Richard's fondness for sex and the naked human body.  

It's Time for the NCAA To Die

Written by: Clay Travis

The country has finally realized what we should have all long ago realized, the NCAA has no real power, it's the Wizard behind the curtain in Oz, the emperor with no clothes. 

Today the NCAA reduced scholarship penalties against Penn State. In so doing the NCAA cited substantial improvements in Penn State's governance. Whatever that means. Presumably USC is still thumbing its nose at NCAA authority, I guess Bruce Pearl's three year show-cause penalty for lying about a BBQ is still considered just too, Ohio State players must still be getting tattoos in unprecedented volume. Otherwise how do you explain the continued penalties that exist there.  

So the NCAA lifted one of its arbitrary and capricious penalties.

That only leaves a few dozen outstanding.

Rather than focus on one amended ruling, let's take the next step, it's time for the NCAA in its present construct to end, forever.

Amateurism, or more accurately, shamateurism, needs to die.
