Outkick the Show: Friday, August 30, 2019

On today’s Outkick the Show, Clay Travis discussed Clemson’s win over Georgia Tech in Week 1 of the college football season. Although Clemson dominated the contest, Trevor Lawrence didn’t have a Heisman-worthy game to start the season, said Travis.

Clay also talked about Cincinnati’s win over UCLA, which continues to highlight the demise of the PAC-12, Utah’s 9th consecutive victory over BYU in their intrastate annual holy war.

Clay also discussed the failed launch of the ACC Network, resulting in most US homes missing #1 ranked Clemson’s first game of this season.

Clay continued by roasting ESPN for continually informing viewers of a former NFL player announcing he is bisexual scrolling on the scrolling ticker on TV last night. The story was also the top sports-news story for ESPN last night and this morning. This, said Travis, is not news, definitely not “breaking news,” and he can’t understand why ESPN needed to shove the story down our throats.

Clay also commented on the pass the media has given DeMarcus Cousins and the NBA with regard to the audio-recording of his recent threat to murder his “baby-mama.” This serves to fit the narrative that the NBA is “woke” and the NFL is conservative and racist.

Clay Travis continued by sharing the rest of this week’s gambling picks.

Finally, Clay talked about Zeke Elliott’s holdout and how it will affect the Dallas Cowboys in their season opener next week. According to Jerry Jones, Elliott might miss a few games until their deal is finally negotiated.
