Clay Travis is just a professional SEC troll who got there by doing some good investigative work in the past. He long ago used up any credibility from that. Since I'm friends with someone who is friends with his wife and this will create an awkward social situation for me in the future I wanted one of the mods to step in. But if I must I must. Clay Travis has been added to the Drew Sharp Memorial list of people whose existence has a non-negligible negative effect on human discourse, and therefore should be ignored always except in circumstances in which you have an opportunity to punch him in the nads, wherein you should deign to interact with him only insomuch as required in order to punch him in the nads.
Those posting Clay Travis opinions will be treated as you would treat a guy you barely know who invited Drew Sharp to your Superbowl Party, i.e. harshly, i.e. in such a way as to be made an entertaining example of.
“Why would it be easier to win at Ohio State?” Travis wrote. “Because Meyer’s building a good SEC program in the Big Ten. And a good SEC program will dominate the Big Ten in a way a good SEC program could never dominate the SEC. “Why? Because the players are much worse in the Big Ten. A good SEC team runs through the Big Ten like a hot knife runs through butter.”
It’s all about the recruiting, said Travis, who thinks SEC coaches are much better and competitive at it. And he said that’s one reason James Franklin left Vanderbilt for the Penn State job. “But at Penn State?” wrote Travis, who got his law degree at Vandy. “All Franklin has to do is out-recruit Meyer, and he’ll have the best players in the entire conference.”
