There really is no rhyme or reason for the content of the following post, except for the fact that it’s funny as (Jon Gruden’s favorite word).
In the spirit of March Madness, the men’s magazine Esquire is doing an NCAA basketball-style bracket to determine the Sexiest Woman Alive.
For reasons unbeknownst to me, Southern Cal head coach Lane Kiffin is included in the pool of 64. Not his drop-dead-gorgeous wife Layla; the head coach himself is the only male in the field.
Again, I have no clue why.
Kiffin enters the “tournament” as the No. 16 seed in what could only be called the WTF?!? Regional, and will square off with LPGA star Natalie Gulbis. The description of Kiffin by the magazine? “Such a pretty girl. Sure raises a ruckus.”
If Kiffin could somehow pull off the upset, it would set up an intriguing match-up in the second round as Kiffin/Gulbis gets the winner of the Erin Andrews-Danica Patrick tilt.
Kiffin vs. Andrews? Oh yeah, bring it on.
And, just for the record, I voted for Kiffin. I implore you all to do the same and get the word out to your friends, co-workers and better halves to do likewise. Let’s do right by Kiffin and put him in his rightful place: on the throne as the Queen of College Football.
This will be a tough row to hoe, though; as of this writing, Kiffin is trailing 83 percent to 17 percent.
C’mon, people. Get out and vote. Do it for your country, do it for the game you love, and, most importantly, do it for Kiffin.
He deserves your support in this endeavor.
