Every year, there is a villain in college football. With Jameis Winston off to the NFL and Alabama not nearly as super dominant as they’ve been in recent years past — there hasn’t really been a school this year who has stood out as the “You root for ___, I root for ____ , but we can both agree that we hate ____” team.Ladies & Gentlemen, I present to you: the University of Oklahoma Sooners.
This gentleman’s name is Eric Striker. He’s the star linebacker for OU, and after an epic comeback in Knoxville this weekend … he went all Russell Crowe Maximus ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED on the entire state of Tennessee.
You knew this was coming, as he went absolutely off on the SEC Conference before the game re: how everyone thinks “they’re the best!”
via: Tulsa World: “Yeah, man, I don’t know why people blow gas up their a** all the time. I don’t understand why, you know what I mean? It sucks. Who is it?
“Let’s prove the people that say this and that about ‘em, let’s prove them wrong. But it never works. Next year, it’s the same thing. I’ve been hearing it since I was in high school. SEC, SEC, you know what I mean? So it’s never gonna stop.”
If Trey Songz is “Mr. Steal Yo Girl”, then Striker should be known from this point forward as ‘Mr. Steal Yo Recruits’.

Striker wasn’t alone. Saftey Hatari Byrd serenaded Rocky Top with a very rude salute on his way off the field…https://twitter.com/38Godfrey/status/642881569322106881
Long story short: I hearby nominate Oklahoma as the Vince McMahon of 2015 college football.
