Like 90% of these are just stupidity on your guys end or something you wanted to hear. Do you guys even like football or do you just follow to laugh at announcers?

Furthermore...goodness, what has happened to this site? Same thing as Deadspin, I suppose. A blog can only get too popular before its quality drops.

Watching Ohio-Tenn. Whoever is doing the play by play in 2nd quarter says (14-14 game)--this game is far from over.

Then they show Lane Kiffin holding his chart sheet and the announcer asks his analyst how many plays does Kiffin have?

Answer: Quite a few--

Thanks for the great commentary guys

How many times during the week do you think Mark Jones practices those lines?
