I’m not a big “viral series sports spoof’ guy (I just made that phrase up), meaning I don’t watch too many of those Bad Lip Reading or Taiwanese Animation videos and stuff like that, but I thought this was hilarious. Like real funny. About 1000x more entertaining than Fowler and Herbie were in the booth that’s for sure. Seriously whose idea was it to get rid of Musburger again?? Fire that person then re-hire them just to fire them again.
PS – The Alabama/Notre Dame one is gold also if you’ve never seen it.

5 Star Recruit Debating Between Which Powerhouse SEC School He’ll Attend For Free Doesn’t Like All The Pressure And Wishes He Was Only A 1 Star Recruit
AL.com – Just hours before Chidi Valentine-Okeke was expected to announce his college football commitment Monday night, the offensive tackle had a change of heart. The 6-foot-6, 305-pounder was all set to pick Alabama, Auburn or LSU on Fox Sports South’s Next Class 2015, but says he needs more time.
“This is a period when I have to make a tough decision in my life,” Valentine-Okeke said during the program. “I feel good, but schools are calling you. It’s hard. I wanted to commit today, but I decided to changed my mind this afternoon. I just want to feel free this week to make the right decision. These three schools I’m looking at are all great schools. They all have good academics and good football programs. This has to do with me and my God. I always pray to God to direct me in whatever I’m doing. These schools, whichever one I choose, will take me to the next level. I believe in that. I have to give myself a little bit of time to ask God to direct me and to make my decision.”
The Nigerian who has become a standout at Faith Baptist Christian Academy in Ludowici, Ga., visited LSU last weekend. He took trips to Tuscaloosa and Auburn last month and says he believes he’ll make his commitment next Monday, the day before National Signing Day.
“Everybody who has been in my shoes as a 5-star player goes through this process,” Valentine-Okeke said. “Every school is telling you they need you. ‘Come to our school, we love you,’ stuff like that. It’s hard. I know I’m not the first person who ever felt this.
“I’m a big recruit and get all these phone calls all the time. Sometimes I wish I was a 1-star.”
This right here, this is the darker side of College Football that we don’t see everyday. Poor kid’s ears have got to be hurting from the phone ringing off the hook day and night with big time college boosters calling to beg him to play for their school. His arms are getting awfully tired from the duffel bags of cash he’s had to carry around during all his official visits. And of course #thoughtsandprayers to his dick after a weekend full of LSU sorority groupies, can’t imagine how unpleasant that must have been. So I know being a 5-star recruit is just terrible, but it’s your cross to bear. We’re not all lucky enough to be 1 star recruits.
P.S. I wonder where God will tell him to go? Who do you think he roots for anyway?
Five-Star Tennessee Commit Shows Up To Official Auburn Visit…Staff Asks Him To Leave Early Because He Wore Nothing But Tennessee Gear And Openly Recruited For The Vols The Whole Time
Finally, we reported last week that wide receiver commit Preston Williams had planned to visit Auburn over the weekend. Well, Williams did end up making the trip, but ended up leaving the visit a day early. The rumors out of Auburn were that Williams was “being a distraction” and “disrupting the weekend,” but we are hearing that Williams was actually asked to leave by Auburn staff members because he showed up wearing nothing but Tennessee apparel and was actively recruiting other visitors to join him at Tennessee. Not exactly prototypical guest behavior for an official visitor, but that news isn’t likely to upset Vol fans too much.
Such a power move. Sure, you can say it’s classless to have Auburn pay for you and your family to come visit then spend the whole time actively recruiting the entire campus for Tennessee, and you might have a point there. But this is big time D1 college football, and if I’ve learned one thing from constantly covering the sport year after year, it’s that this shit is as cutthroat as it gets. You’re not just pledging your time and energy to a program when you sign, you’re giving your heart, your soul, your lifelong fandom until the day you die and get buried in your school colors. Preston Williams isn’t just talking it he’s living it. Got to admire that in the young man.
And let’s not act like Auburn doesn’t deserve any of the blame here. You bring a kid that’s already openly firmly committed to another school trying to flip him instead of offering that spot to a recruit who’s actually interested in you? I mean all his Instagram pictures are in Vols jerseys posing with Butch Jones for Christ’s sake. Sorry but don’t act shocked that this happened.
Recruit’s Dad Throws Michigan Staff Out Of His House For Insinuating His Son Was Stupid #TheHarbaughEffect
ANN ARBOR — On Monday night, Michigan made one more pitch at flipping another Nebraska recruit. But ultimately, three-star defensive end Daishon Neal reaffirmed his commitment to Nebraska live on Omaha’s 1620 The Zone radio station Tuesday morning.
But then things got interesting.
Neal and his family hosted Michigan defensive line coach Greg Mattison in their home Monday, and at first, everything went well. In fact, Neal’s father — Abraham Hoskins Jr., a former college receiver — was leaning toward pushing his son to Michigan.
But then, things changed.
“Michigan was a powerhouse, they came in and they stormed us, they made one bad statement and it was over,” Hoskins told 1620 on air. “They said without football, Daishon wouldn’t be able to go to Michigan. Like we couldn’t afford to send him there, or that we couldn’t get him in academically.
“Once he said that, we pretty much escorted him out of the house.”
Neal continued by stating: “(They) basically tried to call me stupid in front of my face.”
The top player in the state of Nebraska, Neal — a 6-foot-7, 250-pounder — also had offers from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Iowa and Oregon.
Neal did not make a visit to Michigan at any time during the process.
“I was leaning towards Michigan, with their academics, stats, everything,” Hoskins said. “What if he never played again in his life, that degree could have taken him anywhere.”
Big time start to the Harbaugh era. Walk into a recruit’s house, call him dumb and/or poor, and get immediately tossed out on your ass by his father. #TheHarbaughEffect
Listen I’m not an expert recruiter or anything (but then again neither is anyone at Michigan apparently), but I know this. You do nothing but verbally suck his dick from the second you walk in the door to the second you walk out. Kids these days have so much thrown at them, all the perks and benefits and groupies, you got to really light it up in there to get a kid to consider going up to Michigan. I don’t care if this kid is the dumbest motherfucker in the state of Nebraska, I don’t care if he got a 400 on the SAT just for spelling his name correctly. You treat him like Albert god damn Einstein and promise him every starting spot he can handle. That’s how you turn shit around in Ann Arbor.
BR – Tianna Camous plays rugby for Lindenwood University in Missouri, and the girl can certainly hit. Camous has the nickname “KO,” and you can certainly see why when you watch this newly released compilation video.
Here comes the…here comes the…(y’all don’t really want it now) BOOM! - Nelly
Remember those blogs where I made fun of women’s sports? Nope, no you don’t, and if Tianna “KO” Camous asks I’ll deny I even work here.
Seriously, not trying to get my spine broken into eighths.
Reminds me of those Terry Tate: Office Linebacker commercials only instead of some gigantic black man it’s a probably really nice and sweet college girl.

4-star QB Kyler Murray, who committed to A&M in May but is now getting a big push from Texas.
If you thought the intensity of college football rivalries didn’t extend to the reporters covering it, you just don’t know the South. Now consider we’re talking about the state of Texas, with two big time Texas programs fighting over a Texas kid? Honestly the only thing I’d be shocked about is if these two DIDN’T meet up somewhere to settle this with a fist fight.
And for the record this is the stuff Ketchum was talking about regarding Liucci partying with Manziel and rooting for A&M:
