Oh, boy, The New York Times just released a major piece this morning examining the Jameis Winston "investigation" that tells us what we already knew -- the Tallahassee police department completely and totally bungled its investigation into Winston's case. You need to read the story for yourself, but I want to dive into the details a bit more here because there's so much here that it's difficult to break it all down.

So, first, read the story. 

Now, let's examine the four biggest aspects of the New York Times story:


The video was taken on the night in question and was later deleted by Florida State player Chris Casher. 

Let's start here, if the video was of a consensual sexual act, why would you delete it? Also, when did you delete it? Why did you decide to delete it? Did you share it with anyone prior to deleting the video? We don't know because police never reviewed the text messages of Winston and his roommates.

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

By Todd Fuhrman

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.)

Final Heisman Odds for the 2012 Season

Written by: Clay Travis

As we reach college football eve, the season is so close you can almost taste it. We know it's close at OKTC because you knuckleheads flooded the site yesterday. Between mobile and the main site over 150,000 of y'all were on the site yesterday. That's the biggest single day for unique visitors since we launched the site over a year ago. Later today we'll have Todd Fuhrman's debut column with an insider's look on the opening week's college football lines and what Vegas is telling us to expect.

But in the meantime, I thought we'd put the preseason Heisman favorites out there for you guys to chew on today. Instead of reading who writers think will win the Heisman, how about we just see who Vegas thinks the top 44 Heisman candidates are?

So, courtesy of, here's that list.

I am a Gamecock fan. Have been for over 30 years. It would surprise no one to learn that the things I associate most with Gamecock football are pain, suffering, and disappointment. Yet, for some reason – just like every year for the past thirty or so - I can’t wait for football season.

Texas Has SEC Envy

Written by: Clay Travis

Two days before Texas A&M kicks off the 2012 campaign and officially becomes a football member of the SEC, it's clear that the SEC is already having a substantial impact for Aggie athletics.

Yes, tickets have sold better than ever before, A&M billboards have sprouted up across the state marking the area as SEC territory, donations have rolled in, and recruiting has been amazingly successful. But perhaps the best sign of A&M's success is this, the University of Texas is waging a campaign to convince the rest of the country that it's an SEC team as well. That's despite the fact that Texas was actually too scared to join the SEC when it had the chance.

Instead of actually joining the SEC, Texas is trying to become a shadow SEC team -- the Longhorns are waging a campaign of disinformation -- they want to play SEC style football without playing against SEC teams.

Which is what cowards want to do, beat up on the weak while claiming to be strong.

Oh, Texas coaches, fans, and players won't admit it because it pains them more than barbwire raked across bare skin, but there's no doubt: Texas is jealous as hell of A&M's move to the SEC.

Florida Gator Fans Enter Awkward Fan Tattoo Race

Written by: Clay Travis

Florida Gator fans have been able to avoid our awkward fan photo series thus far.

But that's about to end.

You know football season is getting close when I wake up, check my email, and there's an absolute deluge of trash talk photos of rival fan bases submitted to OKTC. And this morning we got a double dose of Florida Gator tattoo fandom.

Secretly, Florida Gator fans like to believe that they're not as redneck as the rest of the SEC fan bases. That may be true for south Florida, but have you ever been to north Florida? The area around Gainesville has so many rednecks living nearby that it makes Mississippi State fans blush.

That's why we're proud to inaugurate the Gators in the awkward fan tattoo club.

The Ten Commandments of College Football

Written by: Clay Travis

It's college football's opening week, like Christmas morning for adults. I'm so excited I could barely sleep last night. The best and shortest season of the year is officially here. Over the next 13 weeks you will live or die based upon a fourth down decision, stand in your living room and pace, scream at the television, upset your spouse or girlfriend over how much you care about a game, kick something, and utter grand pronouncements based upon ten minutes of game time.

And if you're from Alabama you will call me gay.

Right now is the best time in the season, the moment before ball meets foot when anything truly seems possible.

Several thousand years ago a bearded man came down from a mountaintop with ten commandments that changed the world.

It's hard not to like Vandy quarterback Jordan Rodgers. Last month I noticed his Twitter picture and had some fun with it as an awkward quarterback photo. In a first in the awkward photo oeuvre, Rodgers retweeted the article to his followers. That's probably what I would do as well. And it's what a lot of you with better senses of humor would do if you were featured in the awkward fan photo collection. So it's hard not to like a guy with a sense of humor about himself. Jordan has a chance to start two bowl games in his Vandy career. If that happens maybe dressing up as a cheerleader should become a new Vandy quatertbacking tradition.

We're six days away from one of the biggest Vanderbilt football games in school history -- a Thursday night kickoff to the entire season against a top ten South Carolina team. 

Earlier this week we had James Franklin on 3HL and asked him what player he needed to play extraordinarily well for his team to have a shot at an upset. His answer?

Jordan Rodgers.  

The same Jordan Rodgers who recently dressed up as a Vanderbilt cheerleader.
