My 2020 Florida highlight clip

You know, a friend of mine mentioned this moment to me the other day, and upon reflection, I’m not sure we’ve given it the fair consideration it’s due.

Wilson’s display of stupidity is awesome, of course, but what really makes the whole thing is the referee’s “20 yards down the field” touch.  Chef’s kiss, baby.

Molder of young men

I really don’t know what goes through some people’s brains sometimes.

Dude’s been fired, to no one’s surprise.

There’s always a hot take when you need one.

And this one’s… something.

You know, there’s no rule that says once you type something moronic you have to click on “Tweet”.

Weakest analogy of 2020

This one’s cringeworthy, but, considering the source, hardly surprising.

No, Bill, that’s not even in the same zip code as the least you can do.

The triumphant return of Mudcat’s car

I’m very glad that’s the case, but, shit, if this doesn’t sound familiar.

According to Athens-Clarke County Police, LeCounte was unresponsive when first responders arrived at the scene. He was traveling west on Macon Highway at an unknown rate of speed on an unregistered off-road motorcycle that was not equipped with lights or turn signals. Police estimate the accident occurred at 6:49 p.m., which would have been after sunset.  [Emphasis added.]

A 2019 Mazda 3 sedan driven by a 76-year-old man was traveling west on the same road and attempting to turn left into a convenience store. He did not see LeCounte coming.

That’s so Georgia.  All he needed to complete the trifecta was to have done that emerging from an alley.

“I have a lot of trust to build back.”

No shit, Sherlock.

I don’t care where you personally stand on BLM, if you’re an athletic director, doing an “all lives matter” take on anything these days is a galactically empty headed move.  Well played, genius.

Irrelevancy on steroids

Is there anything more useless than an AP preseason poll ranking teams that have already announced they won’t play this season?

They blame Bobo.

I never imagined when I posted this yesterday…

Let’s hear it for Colorado State, which, in a matter of a few short months with a brand new coach, has managed the difficult Daily Double of substandard safety protocols and racism/verbal abuse accusations that need to be investigated by the administration that hired him.

I mean, there are programs that take years to get to that point.  Salut!

… that it would turn out Colorado State would be one of those programs.

These were some of the incidents most often corroborated in separate interviews:

Bobo and Jancek calling Black football players “boy,’’ a derogatory term aimed at Black people. One assistant coach under Bobo said Jancek quit using the term after being told it was insensitive.

• • •

In a meeting with his assistant coaches, it was confirmed that Bobo was wanting a Black woman to meet a Black recruit. He looked at former assistant coach Joe Cox, who is white and is married to a Black woman, and asked if his wife could meet the recruit. Cox said his wife was not available. He looked around the room and said to former assistant coach Bryan Applewhite, who is Black and married to a white woman, that the next time he hires a Black assistant coach he will make sure he has a Black wife…

In one of the more public outbursts among CSU football staff, Jancek, who is white, and Tre Thomas, a Black starting linebacker, had to be separated on the sidelines in plain sight of many fans at a 2018 game against Wyoming. After that incident, Bobo moved Jancek away from the sidelines and up to the coaches box above the stands, claiming he did so to give Jancek a better look at the field rather than for separation from his defensive players.

“In what other department at CSU would you pay a person $325,000 (Jancek’s annual salary) who you couldn’t trust to be around students, or require your deputy athletic director (Steve Cottingham) to babysit your head basketball coach (Larry Eustachy) because you were afraid of their abusive behavior and you were afraid to fire them?’’ Stewart said.

I will leave it you y’all to beg the obvious questions here.

When the shit comes down…

So, what do you get when you hit up Okie State with a FOIA request for all documents related to Gundygate?  A lot of entertainment, it seems.

My favorite thing of all — after the firestorm is ignited, someone at OAN emails Gundy for an interview.  Hilarity ensues.

3:45 P.M. Amazingly, OAN’s Chief White House Correspondent sends an email to Gundy — who is now squarely in the firestorm — asking if he would be available for an interview that upcoming weekend when President Trump is in Tulsa for his first, post-pandemic rally. Chanel Rion is an optimist — or something:

Folks, you know what they say: Shooters shoot.

When you have less of a clue than Mike Gundy, that’s saying something.
