Top 10 “Occupy Herbstreit” Signs
October 19th, 2011| by Lost Lettermen
10. “Radiohead wouldn’t play in the Big East either”
The British music group known for its disdain of corporate greed was supposed to play a free concert for Occupy Wall Street protesters at the end of last month but pulled a no-show. The Big East can relate; TCU committed to play in the Big East but bailed before playing a single game to head to the Big 12.
9. “NC State mistakenly foreclosed on Russell Wilson”
Well, Wolfpack head coach Tom O’Brien didn’t exactly “foreclose” on Wilson, but he might as well have. O’Brien declared Mike Glennon the starting QB when Wilson’s gridiron future was up in the air as he pursued a pro baseball career in the spring. Wilson decided to return for his senior year of football and is now a Heisman Trophy candidate at No. 6 Wisconsin while his old school is just 3-3, including a 30-point loss to Cincinnati. Oops.
8. “Our economy is crashing at SEC speed”
The speed of players in the SEC is legendary and one of the main reasons the conference has won five BCS National Championships in a row. With the Dow Jones down over 1,000 points since the summer, the economy is plunging faster than a Jeff Demps touchdown run.
7. “Stephen Garcia is occupying this tailgate”
The former South Carolina quarterback has often been at the butt end of jokes for his five college suspensions and alcohol issues while in Columbia. After being dismissed by Steve Spurrier last week, not many people would have been surprised if he showed up in the parking lot of the Clemson-Maryland game last Saturday.
6. “Mangino also has 13 demands: Dunkin Donunts Baker’s Dozen”
The Occupy Wall Street movement gained focus two weeks ago when it clarified its list of 13 demands. Occupy Herbstreit used that as a chance to poke fun at former Kansas head coach Mark Mangino, who people have speculated could weigh up to 500 pounds.
