Wingin’ it

Today’s NIL story is a hoot(ers).

Restaurant chain Hooters announced on Monday that it has signed 51 college football offensive linemen to name, image and likeness deals from teams across the country.

The chain said it wanted to sign offensive line groups, rather than individual athletes, and is now working with players from Auburn, LSU, Oklahoma, Miami, Georgia Tech, Missouri, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Florida Atlantic and USF.

…”It is an honor to have Hooters promote the big guys up front and advocate for the work, dedication and spirit of offensive linemen throughout college football,” Quick said in a statement. “Like an offensive line, Hooters is all about comradery and having a good time, and I think I speak for all linemen by saying we are extremely excited to partner with a restaurant we already love and throw down some wings.”

The Georgia Tech promotion writes itself, doesn’t it?

  1. Is this click bait? Is this story a boobytrap?

  2. What will Waffle House say?

    Also, isn’t Hooters missing an opportunity with South Carolina and Coastal Carolina?

    Nice symmetry: the Goldfellas are the visual opposite of the Hooter girls.

    Some people would debate whether Tech even has an offensive line.

    I’m genuinely surprised that Hooter’s is still allowed to be around. Not that I mind.

      I think it’s because what they wear at Hooters is basically what you see everywhere any Thursday thru Saturday night. I went to Hooters with my wife and daughter on the way to summer camp, something probably unthinkable 20 years ago……. the situation did not even register on the radar. But the chicken was damn good !

    I guess now it’s four tickets, four wings, four Cokes.

    Too bad NIL wasn’t around in coach fish fry’s days. His OL would have been perfect for any establishment serving lamb chops, pork chops, or chopped steak.

      Speaking of Fish Fry anybody seen the new cut blocking rules. They are gone except for OL between the tackles. Stand up blocks only. Defensive players can’t cut either.

        Yeah. Cut blocking can only occur on the initial line charge within the tackle box within one yard of the LOS by offensive linemen and backs that are stationary at the snap and within the tackle box, must be in the “10 and 2” frontal position, and once the ball leaves the initial tackle box at the snap cut blocks are illegal. So if your QB in shotgun takes the snap and immediately takes 5 steps to the left or right the tackle box is gone and any offensive linemen or stationary back engaged in a block below the waist that would otherwise be legal had the QB not moved just subjected the offense to a 15 yard penalty. Will be interesting to see the effect on the Academies and the others that run the triple option.

  9. Given how they performed last year, I figured the Tech O-line’s NIL deal would be with Rugs For Less.

    I went to Hooters a few months ago for the first time in years. While the wings weren’t bad, I felt like I was in a seedy strip club with the lights on. Wanted to take a shower when I got home.

    What about the Waffle House? Did they fire the Waffle House or vice versa?
