Late last night news broke that South Carolina has hired Josh Morgan, Jessica Dorrell's fiance, as a new assistant coach for men and women's swimming. But there was no sourcing on the online report.
You'll recall Dorrell as Bobby Petrino's mistress, the woman who miraculously escaped all injury in his motorcycle accident. You'll also probably remember OKTC's Zapruder tape like analysis of the incident, which we surmised was the result of an unexpected reach around crotch grab mishap. That or the entire motorcycle accident was a made-up story to cover up a beating delivered by Dorrell's fiance.
According to the same site, Fitsnews.com, the duo are still together -- although the June wedding has been postponed.
OKTC placed a call to South Carolina's Steve Fink to make sure that the reported hire was correct and Fink confirmed to OKTC that it was true.
So welcome to South Carolina Josh Morgan and Jessica Dorrell.
Yesterday we brought you the Arkansas fan with the rabid Razorback covering his entire back. That was an uncomfortable mess of a tattoo. But at least it was fiery, wild, and soaked in masculinity -- and meth, lots of meth. In that article we pointed out that Alabama and Kentucky fans were unlikely to take that tattoo standing down. After all, when it comes to idiots, both fan bases rule the college sports landscape and don't like being challenged. But I didn't think it would happen this quickly.
So you can imagine my surprise when I wake up this morning and y'all are Tweeting me a story about a $1700 Bama tattoo that took ten hours to create.
Yes, it's really an elephant rushing through a Crimson Tide.
And that's really his back with that image.
Every time an Alabama fan does something stupid, I think, this absolutely can't be topped.
And then it's topped.
Six years ago I left on my Dixieland Delight tour. I started in Knxoville and finished in Atlanta with the Florida Gators winning the SEC championship over Arkansas. The SEC has won the national title every year since the 2006 season. So clearly I'm good luck. Five years ago the book was published and tens of thousands of y'all have read it since. As sports books go, Dixieland was about as successful as a non-Michael Lewis tome can be. Every year since Dixieland I've eagerly awaited the release of the SEC schedule because it's exciting to think about what might be. The games, the fun, the feeling of walking through a campus moments before a Southern kickoff.
Truly, there is nothing better in sporting life.
For those of us who were fortunate enough to be at last year's LSU-Alabama game in Tuscaloosa, we experienced a heavenly scene, the day when the South achieved college football perfection.
Sometimes, when the ball is teed up and both teams are lined across the field awaiting the kickoff, I have to pinch myself to confirm that I really do this for a living.
