Thank goodness college football is back. Nothing quite brings out the best and worst in humanity like the manic-depressive mood swings of highly competitive alumni armchair head coaches. This is humanity at its most irrational. Every single game is life or death. And with great irrationality comes great property damage.
After Kentucky’s embarrassing 44-35 loss to Southern Miss, a Wildcat fan called into Kentucky Sports Radio and claimed that Mark Stoops owes him $400 to replace the TV he broke with an airborne Bud Light. Apparently the fan was so distraught with his team’s performance that he threw his beer through his television. Frankly, I don’t think this loss is going to make a difference in Kentucky’s season as they haven’t had a decent program in ages. It’s not like they were favored to win the SEC or anything. This guy’s an idiot, but I can sympathize in a sense.
As much as I’d like to make fun of property damage in the name of college football, I’m as guilty as any football fan in America. I lost a door to the 2014 Georgia-Florida game and a phone screen to the 2015 Georgia-Florida game, may they rest in peace. I imagine that if every coach was held liable for the property damage resulting from his bonehead coaching decisions the amount in restitution would be in the millions. Mark Richt alone likely would have bankrupted UGA’s football program. But I digress. It’s fine to call your team’s coach a blithering idiot, but it’s pretty stupid to go on record on a radio show claiming you deserve restitution for being a drunk fool. .
