What’s Going On Puts Self On Cross

August Update Background

It’s got nothing to do with gas mask bongs or Instagram pics of large sums of money

Hugh Freeze, who once said his reason for being against satellite camps was that he’d have to work harder, has found a way to top himself. During the Under Armour All-American Game, a recruit was asked about what Ole Miss is saying to recruits about the investigation by the NCAA. Freeze’s answer was apparently a real doozy:

“Well, Coach Freeze told me when you’re that big and out there with faith in Christ, he’s like, ‘What do you expect? Jesus got nailed to the cross,’” [Chevin] Calloway said

That is, without a doubt, one of the dumbest things ever said by anybody. Ole Miss under Freeze pays recruits more brazenly than any program since SMU in the 1980s. That, and that alone, is why the NCAA is investigating the program. Dabo Swinney talks about his faith in every interview that he does and he’s not being investigated.

Another contender emerges

After Ronda Rousey’s recent loss, Clay Travis called her a fabrication by the liberal media. This is because she lost a fight and, as we all know, great fighters never lose fights ever and Rousey’s rise in the first place was only because women were looking for someone to point to in their argument that they are the superior gender. This is all, of course, ridiculous, but that seems to be Fox Sports’ bread and butter anymore. Clay Travis is the same guy who, in August 2015, wrote this talking about how Rousey and Floyd Mayweather needed to fight and offering this prediction for how such an event would go:

But here’s the deal, I think Rousey would win. I really do think, she would beat Floyd Mayweather’s ass. (Chances are, many of you feel the exact opposite way. Which is why this fight needs to happen. When was the last time that we entered a big fight with relatively even odds?)

Ever since Ronda Rousey put me in an arm bar in the Fox Sports green room and chose not to break my arm, I’ve loved her.

In the audio linked above that you should definitely not listen to because it is bad for your sanity, Travis calls himself an idiot for his previous take, calls Rousey a fraud, then goes on this weird riff about liberal female sports personalities demanding that their opinions matter but having no opinions other than that their opinions should matter. The whole thing is cringeworthy. Don’t waste your time. The only reason I did was to call him an idiot here. The things I do for you people. By the way, Clay, the only personality at FS1 who’s not a total boob is someone who has them, and I don’t mean Jason Whitlock, I mean Katie Nolan.

Julie DiCaro, professional Twitter fighter

Comedy Central is going to be televising the Barstool Sports Rundown live from Houston during Super Bowl week. Julie DiCaro, who’s since gone private on Twitter, hence why I’m not quoting her tweets, said that that was it for her watching Comedy Central. Outrage ensued. Julie proceeded to argue with many of the people in her mentions, as she is wont to do. She implied that she was the reason Dan “Big Cat” Katz hadn’t been on The Score recently, citing a fight with Barstool readers over a promo by The Rock that resulted in her deactivating her Twitter account. This is utterly ridiculous, because:

1) It was Kevin Clancy who started that fire, not Big Cat.

2) A good chunk of the people mad at DiCaro during the incident were just WWE fans, not Stoolies.

2a) By her logic, if someone in media says or does something misogynistic, the entire operation they work for is bad, so why was she watching a show that once featured things such as bra-and-panties matches and a necrophilia angle?

Julie DiCaro starts crap and then complains about there being crap, often playing the woman card in the process. The thing that annoys me the most about that is that she gives people like Clay Travis fodder for knucklehead opinions like the one described above. I could understand hating Kevin Clancy; he definitely crossed the line during the WWE incident, and Dave Portnoy’s schtick is to make himself hated, but I have no idea what anyone’s problem with Katz could be, unless they’re simply projecting their problems with his co-workers onto him, which in Julie DiCaro’s case would be pretty ironic, considering The Score employs Dan Bernstein. You know, the guy who once said Patrick Sharp was having an affair with Cheryl Scott, which even if true (I have no idea if it is or not and have no desire to know, as it is none of my business), is not the type of thing one should say on social media, especially by one who fancies himself a serious journalist.

In other news…

Noted goofball and Ohio homer Albert Breer had this to say in the wake of the news that Kevin Wilson will become Ohio’s offensive coordinator:

Wilson got fired five weeks ago for pressuring players to play injured. A coach’s primary responsibility is to his players and Wilson failed at that. Don’t tell me he learned his lesson in five weeks.

Ric Flair is still stylin’ and profilin’:

Those are bumper plates, so I can’t tell exactly how much that is, but regardless, not bad at all for a man his age.
