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.)

Photos have finally surfaced of AJ McCarron's tattoo that features the Mobile skyline

And they are glorious.

McCarron's tattoo is fabulous, a true work of art. 

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Bosinian farmer Blazo Grkovic who strangled a bear to death with his bare hands when it attacked him.

You'll recall that we previously discussed in the mailbag what animal the average man could kill with his bare hands.

I guessed a cow.

But Blazo Grkovic took down a bear. 

Why Doesn't ESPN Buy CBS's SEC Package?

Written by: Clay Travis

Ask anyone involved in televised sports what the best current television deal in sports is and the answer is unanimous -- CBS's first round SEC draft pick each week along with the SEC championship game for just $55 million a year. 

It's a complete and total steal -- CBS has the best deal in sports. 

Break down the deal and CBS is paying just $3.43 million per SEC game. That compares with ESPN paying over $100 million per game for Monday Night Football. Okay, but that's pro football. Well, ESPN pays the Rose Bowl $80 million a year for just one game.

So CBS gets sixteen total first pick SEC games (there are two doubleheaders each year), including the SEC championship game, for $25 million a year less than ESPN pays for the Rose Bowl by itself.

Wow.  

The SEC on CBS's deal is complete and total insanity, a bargain unlike any other, like buying Manhattan for trinkets. And this deal continues for another decade, meaning that today's numbers, which already look like the television deal of the century, will come to look even more cheap as the years continue to tick by. 

Which brings me to an interesting question, why doesn't ESPN buy the SEC's rights package from CBS?

My Facebook news feed is good for two things:

1)   Arguments about politics.

2)   Arguments about college football.

On Thursday night Vanderbilt will open their 122nd season of football in front of a sellout crowd and national TV audience. It will be an outstanding environment for college football, something that is unfortunately unique in the recent history of the Commodores. Often those stands have been half-full and sometimes less. But always among that crowd, whatever the size, has been Song Michael Han. He's cheering on his 'Dores, high-fiving strangers and making new friends in every section.

Nick Saban and SEC commissioner Mike Slive have a close relationship. In fact, Slive trusts Saban unlike he trusts any other SEC coach. Slive and Saban have a mutual admiration society. Last year Slive used Saban to advocate aggressively for the best four teams to advance to the playoff. At the time it was a cold war, arguments over whether or not the best four teams should advance to a playoff ruled the day. 

This year the primary debate is over a nine game SEC schedule. 

SEC commissioner Mike Slive has played his cards close to his vest, telling CBS's Tony Barnhart yesterday that he didn't have a public opinion on future SEC schedules. 

That's all well and good, but look closely and Saban will tell you what Slive typically thinks.

It's not gay if it's Kliff Kingsbury. For my purposes, let me amend this: It's not a mythical mystery if it's not Shirtless Kliff Kingsbury. 

SEC chicks have a hard time. In 2012, men still don't take female fandom seriously. In our nation, where over 50% of college graduates are female, men -- and I'm talking to you FBS guys, Ohio State fans included -- fail to view women as fan equals.

It's Friday which means it's time for the Mailbag. 

Congrats, you can pretend to work while reading in advance of the Memorial Day weekend.  

Our beaver pelt trader of the week is Kevin Durant. He's included in a mailbag question as well, but his decision to donate a million dollars to the tornado victims is worthy of the award. 

And much more. 

Okay, let's dive into the mailbag.

Snoop Dogg's Son Is a Four Star Football Recruit

Written by: Clay Travis

Ever see Snoop Dogg strutting across the stage and think, "Snoop's got some decent height and if he wasn't so high all the time, he might have pretty good motor skills."

Well, you were right. 

Meet Cordell Broadus, Snoop's son, who is a four-star, ranked #88 overall, in the class of 2015 by 24/7 Sports.

The Doggfather's son already has ten scholarship offers from USC, LSU, Tennessee, Duke, California, and UCLA among others. 

Yesterday afternoon news officially broke that ESPN had signed Paul Finebaum to a five year contract. The deal calls for 100 TV appearances a year and a simulcast of Finebaum's radio show on the upcoming SEC Network, set to debut in August of 2014.

It's a smart decision that fills up several hours of programming year-around on the upcoming SEC Network. Putting radio shows on television works pretty well already and is a cost-effective duality. ESPN pioneered the strategy in sports with multiple shows now airing daily and NBC and CBS have followed up on the decision, placing Dan Patrick and Tim Brando front and center on the NBC Sports Network and the CBS Sports Network. It would be a pretty big shocker if Fox didn't also have a radio show on television when FoxSports1 and FoxSports2 debut this August.   

But the biggest aspect of this deal is the message that the SEC is sending to the college sports universe. 

Vandy offensive line coach Herb Hand is a great guy and a fun Twitter follow. You can follow him on Twitter here. But yesterday Hand came face to face with the newest Twitter foil, someone who chose to Tweet obscene insults about his family.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised at the continued devolution of Twitter discourse. After all, Facebook is rapidly losing its popularity with the idiots out there, and those idiots have to go somewhere on the Internet. Of late they've picked Twitter. And I'm now to the point where I think you should have to pass a basic intelligence test to be allowed to Tweet. 

Recently, the number of people on Twitter who go after wives and kids is downright scary. 

Hell, even the mob leaves families alone.

But some on Twitter have a moral code that would even make mob bosses blush.  

Yesterday @julianbucio, a University of Tennessee fan who happens to be one of 100 or so people I have ever blocked on Twitter because he sent me similar messages attacking my family, Tweeted this to Coach Hand, "dude I think your wife is f---ing someone while you coach your pathetic football team. #slut"
