Brought to you by Kathie Lee and Hoda, who hosted their “Going Back to College” show at University of Tennessee this morning. Luckily, KLG and Hoda are too classy to butt chug boxed wine at their faux-tailgate; instead, they brought their own bedazzled tubes and a vintage Chardonnay (ba-dum chhh).
Speaking of tailgating, we had lots of KSR College writers on the prowl around Commonwealth this weekend. David Mulloy posted a side by side comparison of tailgating pre- and post-ban, while Wilder Treadway focused on the ghost town that was this weekend’s “tailgate.” Wilder was full of salt, and his smart ass comments make this a post worth reading.
For those of you who are still ruminating on the loss to South Carolina, Austin Greenwell recapped it in “A Tale of Two Halves” and expanded on why we should be optimistic about Jalen Whitlow’s development this season.
Continuing the football conversation, Andrew McCarthy dug through his vault of old sports writing to find a piece he’d written about Bobby Petrino “blowing a once in a lifetime opportunity” with his scandal at Arkansas. Andrew rethinks his original stance, noting that Petrino’s name is popping up for different head coaching vacancies across the country.
