Jesus, Girls, Marcus Mariota, and Geese!

College football is a passion many folks enjoy, myself included. It’s great fun and over the many years of “fandom” I have gained much enrichment. The media coverage has recently become over the top because there is so much money in televising these events. Much of it is pure nonsense ESPN has so much air time to fill that they are employing some really disappointing commentators who could best make their marks in other endeavors. And the entire media is leveraging readership with lurid stories around the participating colleges and athletes. Some of it is true but sadly some of it is yellow journalism at its worst.

But much of what happens is really fun. Here are two examples from the past week end of what I call good clean fun. They are both unique and hilariously funny.
