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.

Friday's Picks For the 2014 NCAA Tourney

Written by: Clay Travis

Yesterday I went 7-8-1 on my sixteen picks, with two incredibly crushing losses -- St. Joe's +4.5 vs. Connecticut and N.C. State +2.5 vs. St. Louis. Both of these teams led throughout the entire game, covering was a breeze. Until, that is, overtime arrived and they both somehow managed to choke away not just the lead but their covers as well. Win those two games -- and I'll be honest, I was already counting them both as wins, especially N.C. State, which was up 16 late in the game -- and I would have finished off the first day 9-6-1.

Sigh. 

But we fight on. 

So here are today's best picks. We begin with mine and Todd's best five picks from FS1 last night.    

I know lots of you will be working during the NCAA Tournament. Many of you will be sneaking glimpses at work, lots of you will be calling in sick, all of you will be looking for a good time. So we've got a new addition that can make your Thursday even better. Starting at noon eastern and running for four hours we're doing a live #foxcast from the Hard Rock pool in Las Vegas. I promise it's going to be fun. The Foxcast will be hosted by me, Todd Fuhrman, Elika Sadeghi, Marques Johnson -- a former star UCLA basketball player who also robbed the basketball court in "White Men Can't Jump" -- and Metta World Peace. Yes, it's all live from pool side with no commercials.

We'll have Vegas entertainers, strippers, the latest in game wagering lines, alcohol, sunshine, girls cavorting behind us in bikinis at the Hard Rock's sandy bottom pool, you really need to watch.  

Basically, if it's a sin, we plan on embracing it. 

Will it be a total disaster?

Probably. 

Will you be able to look away? Probably not. 

So come hang with us as you watch the games from 12-4 et tomorrow.

We'll be interacting with your Tweets that you send to #Foxcast and I think you'll really enjoy our hosts as well as the people we have calling in throughout the games.

You'll be able to watch us at the link below. Go ahead and bookmark it.  

I'm betting every first and second round game this year at the LVH Superbook in Las Vegas. (I refuse to call the play-in games the first round). This means I'm betting at least $4800 total. The downside of betting on every first and second round game is, let's be honest, it's pretty much impossible to know very much about all of these teams. Even with my diligent research -- which has consisted of reviewing every team's schedule, most of them anyway -- and then deciding -- when I'm not coming up with insanely good theories about what happened to the Malaysian jet -- who to bet on.

I am not a "sharp" better. Nor am I claiming that by taking these picks you will become wealthy. (I save all those claims for college football, which I actually watch pretty much every game of and have a decent sense of the markets). Note: I am often very wrong about college football as well, this year my Outkick picks finished a very robust 50%. Seriously, exactly even. Last year in college football, I was over 66% though, so there's that.   

Basically, I'm a lot like you guys when it comes to March Madness. I like college basketball, but I don't live it or watch every team play. Who has the time to watch basketball on a Wednesday night when you get home and your six and three year old want you to watch Star Wars episode 5 for the 18th time? Plus, my wife goes to bed early and I have to pretend that I'm going to sleep at the same time as her so she is occasionally willing to sleep with me. 

As a result, I'm fairly well versed in the SEC and the A-10 basketball, which makes me the only person in America who can say write this sentence. 

It wasn't enough for me to risk $4800 total, so I just bet $1000 on Tennessee +2 against Iowa. Yep, I'm all in on Cuonzo Martin's Vols, which is a clear recipe for disaster and makes me question all of my sanity. But I have faith. Tennessee's on a roll and Iowa is collapsing. I think the Vols win outright, which is probably why I should have played the moneyline.

But I didn't, so, anyway, Twitter should be entertaining tonight.

And if Cuonzo Martin costs me a $1k by losing to an inferior Iowa team, then I'm going to just cry myself to sleep tonight. (So, basically, it will be a regular Wednesday night for me).

Vegas Guide to March Madness (Part 2)

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

Coming to Vegas in March means the focal point of discussion is betting, buckets and books but there’s more to creating the ultimate experience during your 96 hour binge.  A man (or woman) has to eat, drink, and party like a rockstar to uphold their inalienable right to be reckless and foolish while soaking up Sin City. Fortunately we’re building on Part 1 of our ultimate Vegas guide with recommendations for restaurants, nightclubs, and yes even golf courses that shouldn’t be missed when you head to the desert.

Bruce Pearl Arrives at Auburn

Written by: Clay Travis

Auburn fans just welcomed Bruce Pearl on his arrival to campus and Pearl's arrival at the airport is already the most exciting thing to happen in SEC basketball this year. 

Of course Pearl told fans he wants the same kind of reception when they win an SEC championship at Auburn. 

Jumping in a student mosh pit, mocking the guy who had his cell phone go off, and leading cheers? Yeah, this is all vintage Pearl.

I'm a little surprised he didn't exit the plane shirtless with, "Die Alabama," written on his chest and immediately have the eagle land on his outstretched hand. 

Auburn fans have already forgotten about Tony Barbee. Meanwhile, Tennessee fans are watching this video while silent tears roll down their faces. All, that is, except for Dave Hart and the UT administration who didn't want to see this kind of fun, frivolity and excitement associated with their basketball program. Meanwhile, the media covering UT basketball are gearing up for nap time with Cuonzo Martin today. They get free juice boxes!  

Sixteen months ago Auburn's football coach was Gene Chizik and its basketball coach was Tony Barbee.

This was the worst combo of head coaches in the SEC, and one of the worst tandems in the entire nation.

Fast forward 16 months and everything has changed -- Auburn now has Gus Malzahn installed in football and today they added Bruce Pearl in basketball. In just sixteen months Auburn has gone from having two of the worst head coaches in college athletics to having the best. Think about what a wild transition this is for an athletic program. Jay Jacobs has gone from being booed after hiring Gene Chizik to putting together the best coaching tandem in college athletics.

If athletic directors could win the Heisman trophy for a year's performance, Jay Jacobs would be the unanimous selection this year.

What a total whirlwind, from one of the worst coaching combos in the country to the best in just sixteen months.    

Last night we made television history on FS1. Thanks to the good work of our staff and crew we were able to pull off a really fun show from the LVH Superbook here in Las Vegas. Never before had any national sports program been willing to head to Vegas for an entire week's broadcasts. Viewer response was nearly 100% positive and we're here all week, daily on FSLive. Thanks to the guys at Fox for buying in to a new idea when Todd and I started pressing them to do this back in October. 

It's only going to get better from here. 

If you happen to find yourself in Las Vegas, come by and say hi on Thursday and Friday evening around 8 when we'll be doing live hits as the games are taking place behind us. If you're really lucky I've even promised to do the show without pants if Todd Furhman's NC Central to the Sweet 16 prediction comes true. The LVH Superbook should be a total zoo during the games, filled with antic reactions to the wins and losses and pure bedlam.

Without further ado, here are my Final Four picks and our opening segment from Vegas. Thanks to Charissa Thompson and Todd Fuhrman and all our crew for making this happen. 

Here's our break down of the South region, aka, the Florida Gator's Final Four bracket. 

I don't know that SEC basketball has ever been summed up better. "The conference sucks. Florida is good."

Vegas Guide to March Madness (Part 1)

Written by: Todd Fuhrman

March Madness in Vegas can only be described as one thing; a circus.  Having called Sin City home for 8+ years, I’ve learned a few things about approaching the chaos associated with the opening weekend of the tournament like a seasoned veteran.  Only OKTC will give you everything you need to know in this 2 part article from bets and books to the booze, bites, and babes that make these 4 days in March a must on every fan's bucket list.

Come hang out as we make television history. 

Outkick the Podcast With Author David Epstein

Written by: Clay Travis

"The Sports Gene," by David Epstein is one of the two best sports books I read in 2003. (The other was "League of Denial.") As an author I know how hard it can be to cut through all the noise and have your book noticed. So occasionally I'm going to use the podcast to help publicize books that I've really enjoyed.

If you've ever wondered how much of athleticism is genetic and how much is related to practice, Epstein's book is for you. It's completely fascinating. Breaking down the body types and genetics of great athletes and examining what makes them excel. Why does Jamaica produce so many great sprinters? Why can't baseball players hit softball pitchers? What makes Kenyan distance runners so successful? What about the particular body type that makes swimmers able to set world records? How about the guy who had never attempted the high jump until college and then became the world record holder?

You are going to love this book. (In my best Levar Burton voice). Go buy it.  

I'm putting the podcasts up on Soundcloud here, but most of you are already signing up for the podcast downloads.

Hopefully they're helping to make your workouts or drives past a bit faster.
