I am sure you have seen these before, but the past few weeks of college football have provided some real entertainment on youtube.
First, you have the Leach rant:
Then you have the Mike Gundy rant. Yes, the WINNER of the game went on a bigger rampage than the loser. If you don't understand the rant, you need to read the article that set him off.
The chick that wrote the article, Jenni Carlson, wrote a defense of her article.
Mike, you had a good point, but you need to work on being more articulate. Jenni, your defense sounds good, but the original ariticle did cross the line. You need to admit that. When you start out with "...tile up the back stories told on the sly ..." and "...if you believe the rumors and the rumblings..." and "...word is that ..." then you are not reporting. You are gossip mongering. You can't claim that Reid "sat it out instead of gutting it out" unless you are a trainer on the team. You are speculating. And don't bring his mom into this (only a chick could write that article because one lesson all boys learn growing up is you bring somebody's mom into this, you gonna get your ass whooped.)
Unfortunately, the Daily Oklahoman is fickle on whether you must register to read the articles linked. I think you can click around once or twice before they make you register.
Blog readers, you know that I consider sportswriters to be maggots, and I am glad Mike Gundy called her out. I just wish he had acted like a professional when he did it.
This one is a week old. The humor is subtle, but it is humorous indeed:
This is the most viewed Coach Fran one. If you haven't seen the Brittany Spears one it is spoofing, you should watch it first. The spoofs out there are numerous (there is one on the Gundy-Reid situation too), but this one is pretty funny.
Oh this is fun. When OU beats Texas a bazillion to nothing, you can have some fun with me (and Coach Brown), but for now it's fun with the other Big XII coaches.
And now I go watch the WSOP so I can actually have a poker-related post this week. Novel concept...
