Nothing makes me happier than watching the slow agonizing death of college football.

Maybe I’m just petty.

But when you grow up in flyover territory, college football is only a step or two away from being a full blown religion. Now major college towns across America are facing a sad reality that their football team will never see another title. That is, unless you’re living in Tuscaloosa, Athens, College Station, Austin, Baton Rouge, Clemson, Ann Arbor, Columbus, and maybe Eugene…or in other words…if your school has the money they’re willing to throw around.

But poor Oklahoma and Florida State fans. You guys had the world in your hands, but now you will both be doormats in the SEC once you inevitably join that conference. Smh

At least college basketball is still competitive tho

mens fashun

For a man that dresses like Larry the Cable Guy everyday (I’m not a redneck btw. I just like the aesthetic), I sure do appreciate men’s fashion.

Unfortunately, as all of you very well know, I’m cheap….often to my own detriment.

But these are some of my favorite men’s fashion icons and looks:

Daniel Craig

I’m straight, for the most part. But I will always make an exception for Daniel Craig.

The man can roll around in cow shit in his underwear and make it look good. As far as fashion is concerned, he can do no wrong.

He’s best known for playing James Bond. But, in my humble opinion, his finest fashion hour was in Layer Cake. That film is nearly 20 years old, yet he still makes those clothes look fresh.

Of course, it helps to have a body of a god.

Roy Williams

Fuck UNC and Tar Heel basketball! If it weren’t for Bart Ehrman (honestly, a fashion icon in his own right), Chapel Hill would be North Carolina’s landfill.

The only thing that it’s basketball program had going for it was Roy Williams’ fashion sense. You gotta admit that those were some dope ass blazers he wore.

Mike Tomlin

Mike Tomlin caught some flak a few years ago for not giving a flat fuck about being fashionable. But why should he?

He’s my favorite football coach for multiple reasons. He’s never had a losing season, and he can ROCK a pair of aviators, a baseball cap, and a headset.

Definitely the coolest coach in the NFL

The “70s college professor”

Nothing says sophistication like a corduroy jacket and sweater vest.

Add a pipe and suddenly you’re the smartest man in the room.

Turtleneck and Leather Jacket

Let’s be clear: this is the most powerful look a man could wear.

9 Inspirational quotes from Bobby Knight

Robert Montgomery Knight was born on October 25th 1940 in Orville, Ohio. In his 40+ year career, he won the NCAA Division I National Title three times in basketball which includes an undefeated season in 1976. He was inducted into the Basketball HOF in 1991 and the College Basketball HOF in 2006. He is widely considered one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time.

We should all stop and appreciate that this is a real man who actually exists.

“The will to succeed is important, but what’s more important is the will to prepare.”

“Mental toughness is to physical as four is to one.

I think that we as a people are always prone to think about, well, tomorrow will be a better day. Well, why will it be a better day? And I think the more that we believe in doing things better, doing the right thing rather than hoping that that’s going to happen, let’s make it happen.”

“I’ve always felt that, you know, the Almighty has a lot of things to do other than help my basketball team.

“I’ve always been a great fan of the state of Pennsylvania. One of the people – one of the people that I admired the most in college athletics was Joe Paterno.

“I don’t think I have ever been out of control.

“I’ll tell you one thing about Donald Trump: There will never be a Benghazi in a Donald Trump administration.

I’m an unemployed teacher right now and I’m looking for a place to teach.”

“I tell you what really fries my ass. When somebody gets on me for the way I look. Fat. Overweight. Well, I may be overweight. But I’m sure not fat. And I guarantee you, I’m a better athlete than any @#%$ body writing. To this day, they don’t want to play tennis with me. The don’t want to play me in golf. They don’t want to @#%$ run with me.”

🙌What an inspiration Bobby Knight has been 🙌

Dennis Hopper: GOAT

Phil Spector, Carrie Fisher, Stevie Nicks, and the greatest of all, Dennis Hopper, are all on the Mount Rushmore of cocaine addicts.

In case you forgot, Mr. Hopper was the star in over 104,000 films

Dennis Hopper brought an intensity to his craft that has yet to be matched. In addition to his acting, his talents also extended behind the camera as director of such unforgettable classics like The Last Movie, Colors, Out of the Blue, and Chasers (starring a peak form Tom Berenger).

The 1969 film, Easy Rider, Hopper’s directorial debut, kickstarted the “auteur” fad in Hollywood that extended throughout the 1970’s (which ended in 1983 when, again, three people were killed. And again, RIP). Sadly, the 70s saw Dennis Hopper’s acting career more or less flatline, which was likely due to his aforementioned cocaine addiction (which is unfortunate. The decline of his acting career that is. Not his crippling cocaine addiction).

However, there was a Dennis Hopper renaissance in the 1980s, with the height of his success coming in 1986 as the sadistic Frank Booth in Blue Velvet and the alcoholic Shooter in Hoosiers.

Hopper rode this newfound fame on into the 90s and 2000s, saying ‘yes’ to any script that was handed to him. Who can forget the time he fought Keanu Reeves on top of a train in Speed? Or taught Kevin Costner how to act in a bad movie for Waterworld? Or gave the greatest racist monologue in the history of film (written by Quentin Tarantino) in True Romance?

Dennis Hopper passed away in 2010.

No matter the script (remember, he was in Super Mario Bros.), no matter the personal dramas in his life, Dennis Hopper always gave it his all.

He was an actor’s actor.

He was the GOAT.
