Pruitt's facemask grab was 'embarrassing,' says Paul Finebaum

Pruitt aggressively barked at Guarantano after a goal-line fumble and grabbed his facemask while he chewed out the quarterback. The play proved costly in the loss to No. 1 Alabama as the Crimson Tide locked up victory with the Trevon Diggs fumble return.

“It’s embarrassing,” SEC analyst Paul Finebaum said during a Monday appearance on WJOX. “Jeremy Pruitt forgets sometimes that he’s the head coach of Tennessee and he’s on national television. He needs to act in an appropriate way. I’m not saying it’s a fireable offense, because it’s not. It’s just one more thing that you look at in his overall resume and you wonder how much upside does this guy have? I believe that he’s a really good football coach. But the other things that are necessary to be successful, he doesn’t have. His PR skills are terrible. His sideline demeanor is not impressive. When you put hands on another player, you are inviting a lot of trouble and a lot of criticism.”

Just poor performance from Tennessee.

Clemson & Alabama QB committs
This Friday, the top two high school football teams in the country via Maxpreps, Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei and Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco will go at it and all eyes will be on star quarterbacks Bryce Young and DJ Uiagalelei.

It’s the best rivalry in all of high school football when the No. 1 ranked Monarchs travel to take on No. 2 ranked St. John Bosco. There are so many ‘game within the game’ matchups that will be fun to watch but those will all take a back seat to the battle between the nation’s two best quarterbacks.

In the modern recruiting era, this will be the first matchup of quarterbacks ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation. It’s obviously the first time quarterbacks from the same league have been rated No. 1 and No. 2 and both players are rated inside the top five nationally by 247Sports.

The spread has climbed to 17, makes my bet more difficult and it's extra embarrassing for MD :( .

@(2)LSU -12 (9)Auburn. Ouch, big spread = no respect. This could end your playoff hopes. Could also move LSU to #1. Like Clemson, Bama has not played a ranked team.
The spread has dropped to 10.5. People have some faith in Auburn. Makes my bet easier.

California +18 @(12)Utah. Homies vs Mormons.
The spread has climbed to 21.5! Makes my bet easier, but it's extra embarrassing for Cal.

@(11)Oregon -13.5 -14 Washington St (4-3). Won't help the Ducks' resume much. Maybe some top tens will flop. LSU or Auburn is certain.

3 games between ranked teams, seems to be about the norm. 6 4 games with single digit spreads, cool could be worse is worse.

The Corn Dog Story

LSU fans smell just like corn dogs.

Yes, it is often said, but so, so true. LSU fans do smell like corn dogs. I would never tell them that to their face though. This is something better said at internet distances. Even now, I am afraid.

I am afraid that they’ll know I said it. I’ll walk past an LSU fan someday, and he’ll see that look in my eye that gives it away. That look that says, “gee, what is that smell? Is it corn dogs?” The next thing you know, I’ll have flat tires on my car.

If you only learn one thing from me today, remember not to tell LSU fans how they smell – you know, like corn dogs.

LSU fans seem, somehow, sensitive to that whole corn dog issue.I think this may be why a lot of fans get beaten up by LSU fans. If you attend a game in Baton Rouge, try to avoid telling them that they smell like corn dogs. Say something else instead. Like, “Wow, LSU sure does have a great team this year. This is going to be a great SEC game.”

It’s hard. I know. It’s like when you’re having sex and you try to think about baseball. That corn dog smell is just so overwhelming. It makes it hard for you to think about football or baseball or whatever else.

Your brain wanders into corn dog topics like: “Gee, I wonder if I took a bite of your finger, if you would taste just like a corn dog?”; or “Is this a real person or is it a giant corn dog trying to make me think it is a real person?” or “What did that giant corn dog just say?” or “Excuse me, Mister, why is it that you smell just exactly like corn dogs smell?” or, of course, after a silencer: “Madam, did you just let the corn dogs out?”

Heck, after what I’ve heard about LSU fans, I think it may be better not to smell them at all. Okay, not all of them. Some of them are nice. Sure. Smell the nice ones. That’s okay.

You know what else is a bad thing to do? Holding your nose around them. They are real sensitive to that, too. Try …

holding your breath. But don’t be obvious about it. Somehow they know you’re trying not to breathe in the corn dog smell. And that offends them. They’ll likely punch you for that if they catch on to what you’re doing.

If you do breathe it in long enough, though, it’ll permeate your whole body, and then you’ll smell like a corn dog just like they do. But don’t say, “Dang, now I smell like a corn dog.” They take offense to that. And they will throw things. But not corn dogs. Hard stuff.

Stuff that leaves bruises and makes you bleed. Then you may have to get stitches or something. Just don’t say it. If you do start smelling like a corn dog, just shut up about it. Okay?

I think kids are acutely aware of corn dog smells too. Counsel your kids on how to behave around LSU fans. If LSU fans are driving around town, do not let your kids stick their heads out of your car window and sniff the air. No. Keep your windows rolled up.

An odd change in their expression – indicating they smell corn dogs – might get a wrench or pipe or some other object tossed at your windshield. So, that’s dangerous. Let your kids stick their heads out of the car windows as you drive – on some other weekend.

I know you are just as puzzled as I am about some of this corn dog stuff. What puzzles me most is that I’ve never actually seen any of these LSU fans with a corn dog in their hand. Okay, maybe there’s no mystery there – maybe they already ate the corn dogs. Who knows?

Maybe there’s a corn dog factory in Baton Rouge and they all work there. Maybe, there’s a corn dog lotion that they wear, or a French perfume. Maybe their city council puts corn dog juice in the water supply – kind of like fluoride. The politics there are probably weird.

The big political issue during the city election is whether they should add more ketchup or more mustard to the water. Don’t comment on it though. It’s not politically correct over there. It’s like a malnutrition issue or something. It’s like the corn dogs are probably added to the water to prevent starvation or something.

I know when you go to Baton Rouge, you’re thinking: “Ahhhh. Here I am in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I’ll bet the people here smell just like boiled crawfish or shrimp etoufe’ or some fancy Cajun food.” But just stop thinking that. That’s just a myth. They smell just like corn dogs.

In fact, please listen to my advice. Leave them alone about the corn dog odor. And don’t try masking the odor with something stronger.

They’ll curse at you. They’ll say something like: “WTF, how dare you smoke a cigar in my home,” or “WTF!! Are you too good for the smell of corn dogs?” and they’ll cuss out your kids too: “WTF!!! Little Mister fancy pants over here acts like he doesn’t want to smell like corn dogs.”

Cajuns are not like us. Don’t you see that, yet? They are really sensitive about being sniffed and about their corn dog aroma. They know they smell like corn dogs and it is no laughing matter to them at all.

I know, I know. We sniff the Bammers and the UGA Dawgs and the Ole Messes, and we keep a straight face with each of them, but don’t press your luck with the Cajun tiger fans. Don’t refer to Death Valley as corn dog valley either. I mean that’s just wrong. Even if you’ve been drinking, they’ll beat you up and curse out your kids.

Along these lines, be extra careful when you laugh in their direction – even if you’re laughing about something else. Like baseball or football, or sex or whatever. If you can’t control yourself and you must laugh though, do not snort. The snorting makes them think that you smell their corn dog body odor from a distance or that you’re choking on it or something. They’ll likely burn your van for that. We lost a campus building over just one snort.

So, just remember. You can love one another without sniffing each other. You can enjoy the clash of a couple of good football teams. You can enjoy the thrill of the rivalry. But after the game, please heed my words. Please just move along. No sniffing the opposing fans this Saturday. Okay? Get your corn dog jollies at home.

Enough with this corn dog talk. Let’s play ball…

Like many taunts, the fans using think it is much cleverer than it ever will be. And the fact that Auburn fans allegedly plagiarized it from another school makes it even more delicious than a quality hot dog on a stick dipped in thick cornmeal-based pancake batter and then fried golden brown before it is topped with bright yellow mustard....

Not sure how this excellent piece of literature could be considered as plagiarized from a nickname.
Besides, Baton Rouge does smell like corn dogs

You may want to qualify your source better.

I also responded above before I thought about it.

No links, her only source is the lsu paper and no matter how I ask the Google, no Nebraska corn dog references - other than recipes, state fair info and stadium food.

Could be that our cajun friends are offended by their own corndog odor.

"Accuracy" in reporting, when discussing whether an entire culture of people smells like corn dogs can be a tricky proposition. The extent of my caring about the subject took me down 3-4 links. I thought the Katy Perry one was the most entertaining. But you're right - nobody else seems to mention any Nebraska connection; however, they also don't have a better explanation for the origin, which is what I really wanted to know. So does anybody else other than Auburn, Bammer, and apparently Ol' Miss know about the corn dog smell?
