… are screaming hot hypothetical takes that can never be tested in the real world.

This may be the most perfect job of trolling I’ve ever seen on Twitter. It’s pretty much guaranteed to provoke a response from everybody.

I mean, sometimes you’ve just got to step back and tip your cap to a master.
“There is no doubt after reading social media (Wednesday), the most insecure, paranoid fanbase of college football in America is Clemson. The Clemsonites take it to a whole new level. It’s one thing if you’ve never won a national championship. … But these guys have won two in recent years and they are just so desperate for attention. They are so desperate for adulation. They are so desperate to be loved.”
He did have a message for Clemson fans, though.
“I just laugh at Clemson fans,” he said. “Get over yourself, OK? You’re not that important. This 2022. College football has left you behind.”
That should make for a fun show this week, which is all PAWWWLLL!!! really cares about anyway.
This was also shared with me by someone (thanks, W.H.) via email, who thought I should turn around and share it with the class.
This dude sees nobody talking about Georgia this offseason as a bug, but I suspect if you asked Kirby Smart, he’d see it as a feature.
By the way, I have no idea what the random clips of football plays not involving the Dawgs are there for.
Methinks this is a wee bit over the top, but consider the source.
Sources tell me @LincolnRiley first USC practice was flawless. One observer noted “Some are calling it the greatest practice ever on a college campus”.

And there was much social media mockery thereafter.

How it’s going:
Stetson Bennett finished the season No. 3 nationally in yards per attempt (10.0) and No. 4 in passer rating (176.7).
In the 4th qtr. of the national title game, he threw a go-ahead 40-yard TD and a 15-yard TD go up by 8.

And, yes, I get all the usual disclaimers about how a vocal group on social media doesn’t represent the fan base at large, yada, yada, yada.
I also get this:
Some of the things I’m reading are sickening….

We’re less than two weeks out from the team winning a national championship. If Smart and the coaching staff don’t deserve the benefit of the doubt from every Georgia fan right now, when will they ever?
Somehow, I suspect the program will muddle through just fine. Some folks need to chill or find another diversion in their lives.
Tennessee fired Butch Jones as its head coach and the Vols’ search for his replacement reached Schiano.
Tennessee fans displayed their displeasure of discussion that Schiano was set to become the Vols’ next head coach. Fans protested and voiced their displeasure on campus, social media and on sports talk shows.
According to former NFL general manager Mike Lombardi, Schiano was set to bring eventual Heisman Trophy and national championship quarterback Joe Burrow with him to Tennessee.
In a recent GM Shuffle podcast, Lombardi said that Tennessee not hiring Schiano prevented Burrow wearing orange and white and then transferring to LSU…
“He was going to go to Tennessee if Schiano got the job there until they — till social media blew that up — and then he went to LSU.”
Oh, well. At least Vol fans’ hearts are pure. And Clay Travis did help usher UT into a memorable era, even by Vol standards.
Erk I’m sorry for this foolery, excuse me but what the fuck is this? Who singing the valley song? This man is swag surfing the bus and get a stone cold Steve hammer beer pass and chugged it flawlessly. Before the football game. Wow. pic.twitter.com/yoeBG6oc6X

This past weekend was not one that will be remembered fondly in the proud history of Georgia Southern football.
For one, the Eagles lost, 28-20 to Louisiana. The setback was the program’s third straight of the season, and served as the last straw for head coach Chad Lunsford. He was fired Sunday.
As if all that wasn’t enough, a video clip of an Eagles player surfing on top of a bus and chugging a beer extended to him from the crowd made the rounds online.
… AD Jared Benko indicated Sunday that Adcock’s surfing escapade factored into his decision to fire Lunsford.
“I share with our coaches and staff all the time, every day is an evaluation… Everything up to the time of the decision was factored in,” he said.
Nothing says college football is back, baby, like Twitter losing its collective mind over Brian Kelly botching a famous John McKay joke about execution. That makes him a man who lacks a sense of humor (like we didn’t know that), not history’s greatest monster. (And for making me defend Kelly, thanks a lot, Twitter).
Now this, on the other hand, is funny.
This is not technically against the NCAA rules, unless he pays a recruit to do it. https://t.co/BpmSZXEcAw
