Outkick the Coverage Mailbag - OSU Hate Edition

Submitted by CdubGoBlue on July 26th, 2013 at 1:49 PM

This is my first time posting, and I know there have been way too many OSU posts over the past 7-ish days, but this is just too good to pass up.  It's Friday, enjoy a laugh or two.

I recently moved from Nashville back up to west MI, but I would listen in on Clay Travis' radio show once in a while.  Mostly when something crazy happened in the world of sport, as his takes on things can be pretty comical.  He's certainly entertaining if you can get past his obvious SEC homerism.



EDIT - Clay Travis is part of the 3 Hour Lunch radio show on 104.5 in Nashville, TN

I've lived in Nashville for 7+ years (from AA) Travis likes to brag about how he's a lawyer and overall loves to hear himself talk. I can't stand him one bit. All of the homerism certainly outweighs anything logical that he says. Thanks for sharing though.

"RT @BuckeyeMike91: I think your a piece of shit. Glad I left Nashville so I don't have to listen to you're bullshit"

This might be my favorite Tweet of all time, it's like a Twitter double rainbow, or seeing a unicorn.

This guy actually managed to use both versions of your incorrectly in less than 140 characters. Do you know the level of dumb this requires? It's pretty astounding, like the complete and total opposite of splitting the atom. Buckeye Mike is the type of guy who has spent his entire life thinking he's the smart person and everybody else is dumb.

and a good explanation of what it is he and the folks who run mgoblog do...entertain, compared to "true sports Journalists":

What's more, if you're a true "Journalist with a capital J" why are you making a living writing or talking about sports? Sports exist to entertain people. If you want to be a true journalist head to the Middle East and do bootstrap journalism while people are shooting at you. Uncover corruption at high levels of government. Do something that matters in life.

And, speaking of strange stuff in the media (ok, weak segue), Devin Hester is crediting training with a cheetah (more) for what he's hoping will be a better year focused on special teams this next year.

While I agree that mgoblog has its entertainment value.  I think that what really makes this site unique is the level of actual information and analysis provided.  The entire reason that I started reading this blog was because it is a perfect marriage of my nerd and jock brains -  statistics and michigan football, there aren't many better combinations than that.

I work with two Ohio graduates and just recently got them both to admit that if given the choice they would send their child to Michigan for an education over Ohio..........Reading this cements it I am sure - Them Ohio righters was good.

I've been swimming in a sea of idiocy for the better part of this week. It's gotten so bad that I apologized to Alabama and Kentucky fans for calling them dumb.

Given the amount of brainless trolling I see come from UK fans sometimes, that is mighty impressive
