TOMMY TUBERVILLE RUNS FOR OFFICE AND WE RUN AWAY FROM THIS GALAXY FOREVER src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" style="width: 100%; height: 200px;"> This week’s Fullcast features discussion of everything that happened in college football this week, i.e. nothing at all, happening nowhere. Fortunately, this has never stopped us from making a Fullcast before. Topics covered this week include: What happens when a former football coach runs for Governor of Alabama and has to fill the shoes of the horniest governor ever A survey of sports people who became politicians including a reminder that we actually elected two cast members from the film Predator Note: We should probably make another Predator movie to fill several empty slots in our government Which politicians besides Bill Clinton could we slide over into coaching seamlessly, and we say “besides Bill Clinton” because you know that could happen in like three seconds given the right bar and the right people on any given late night in the state of Arkansas Reader questions, including a discussion of astronomy where we figure out Earth is the Notre Dame football program BONUS READER QUESTIONS BECAUSE NOTHING IS GOING ON: @celebrityhottub Last season, I took my 4 year old to see Rutgers-Illinois. How lasting will the damage be for him?— Brian Arbour (@bkarbour) February 22, 2017 Gundy hasn’t. Instead, he keeps practicing for fewer hours than other coaches and with less contact, and winning more games than most of this peers while doing it. He’s 104-50, a record that puts him just under Bobby Petrino in terms of winning percentage, and in the lead for total games won as head coach at Oklahoma State. He’s the best coach the school’s ever had by the numbers, and all done in an era of brutal competition—-not just from everyone else in conference, but from a powerful Oklahoma Sooners program they recruit against in-state and play every year. So there’s Mike Gundy, just quietly being his weird excellent self, sitting in a wrestling singlet with a mullet he grew out this past season just to annoy his son, making sure you see the “Big Daddy” mug on his desk, selling out for the school’s wrestling program on Twitter in the doldrums of February. He needs butts in every seat, because no one is more psyched about a wrestling match at Oklahoma State than Mike Gundy. That’s why today he’s a grown man in a singlet, on your phone or computer screen. It’s weird, and more than a little endearing, and you want to go to this wrestling match, don’t you? You totally want to go to this wrestling match, because Mike Gundy stays local with himself. That’s different for a lot of reasons, and not just because of the singlet or the gold chain Gundy’s rocking like it’s 1988. Mike Gundy is a local man, and he’s also local, man. [...]
