My favorite part of last night’s complete ass-kicking that the Oregon Ducks handed the Kansas State Wildcats was how ESPN’s announcing crew refused to even acknowledge the existence of the AT&T Cotton Bowl on Fox tonight. Of course they mentioned the BBVA Compass Bowl, but God forbid they toss Fox a bone and mention the bigger, better bowl with the bigger, better teams.
Par for the course, I guess. Honestly, the ESPN stuff amuses me more than it bothers me now. Big changes in 2013, that’s what I attribute this new attitude to. Huzzah.
What you’re looking at (courtesy of Jason Kirk at SBN by way of TexasAgs.com) may be one of the greater moments of trolling in college football history. Texas A&M is the only non-Big 12 major program in Texas, so they want everyone to know that Texas is now SEC COUNTRY … including Austin Texas, home of the University of Texas Longhorns. That billboard sits on the north side of I-35, just before you get to Tinseltown (which non-Texas bloggers hilariously think is a city, and not a crappy movie theater).
Now, I’m far from a native Texan and my love of local college football comes almost exclusively from ‘King Of The Hill’, but this monstrosity is and will continue to be upsetting to a pretty sizeable chunk of my Facebook wall and therefore must be stopped.
A couple of quick realities for anyone seriously upset by this:
I don’t really have much to say about the video after the jump, because no description I can write for it will do it justice. It’s almost like they’re already rolling over and shouting, “As long as the championship stays in the conference!” Because that’s an awesome battle cry.
Because nobody learned from UGA’s ‘The Dawgs Are Comin’ For You’, here’s a bunch of Texas A&M’s least coordinated white people doing choreographed dances to a hip-hop anthem about campus locations and semi-national burrito chains in Lawrence Knox’s ‘Aggie Swag’.
College kids, please write this down: No matter how many LMFAO videos you’ve seen you aren’t as good at rapping as your girlfriend flattered you into believing, so if you go to Virginia Tech and get an awesome idea to rap about Burruss Hall over a Kottonmouth Kings instrumental and call it “Bong Hokies”, don’t do it. The 15,000-ish YouTube hits you’ll get down outweigh the shame of bringing your Hot Chelle Rae “swagger” to the masses.
I’ve got to be honest, I was hoping there’d be a ‘California Love’ part at the end where he asks the various trade schools at the college if they’re in the house. “Agricultural, agricultural always up to no good. MECHANICAL, MECHANICAL WHERE YOU AT.”
Back in April, we shared with you a video of Sports Illustrated model and equestrian teen fantasy Kate Upton doing “The Dougie” at a game wherein a hot lady doing a dumb dance was the most memorable moment. Not only did this become the redefining moment of our With Leather mission statement (“post pictures of Kate Upton nonstop, every day”), it became what we look for in our collegiate sports news. That has been a relatively dry well, until today.
The above video was taken after the Oklahoma State Cowboys beat Texas A&M on Saturday, and what you should be looking for (besides Mark McGwire crying … that is Mark McGwire, isn’t it?) is coach Mike Gundy doing a Godless amalgamation of “The Dip” and “The Humpty Dance”. He gets low, low, low, low, and because the Internet exists we can now enjoy his Caucasian Dance Party set to nearly any song, including — you guessed it — a parody version of Cali Swag District’s “Teach Me How To Dougie”. The lyrics now include Gundy’s famous “I’m a man! I’m 40!” rant, which really should’ve included the line “I DRIVE A DODGE STRATUS!”, for extra hilarity. Oklahoma State should already be calling up Kate and paying her to drink SoBe in her underwear to this.
