Oregon fan will marry an Auburn fan if the Ducks lose the BCS Championship

The upcoming Oregon-Auburn BCS Championship game is StubHub’s highest selling event in history, and one Oregon fan is so confident his Ducks will win, he is willing to bet his bachelorhood on it.

Ryan Tharp will marry an Auburn fan in Las Vegas and pay for it if Oregon loses… if the Ducks are the BCS National Championship, Tharp wants his bride to pay for their wedding. Tharp posted the bet on Craigslist saying:

“I, along with several buddies, will be celebrating the Duck victory in Vegas from Jan. 11 to 14. During that extravaganza, I plan on taking in the entire Vegas experience, including marrying a stranger. So, if you are going to be in Vegas after the National Championship, believe in your Tigers and want to have stories to tell your grandchildren (won’t be mine) then shoot me an e-mail with a pic.”

Now if that doesn’t say happily ever after, I don’t know what does!

Alabama employee fired for playing “Take the Money and Run” and “Son of a Preacher Man” for Cam Newton during Auburn game

A University of Alabama Sports Information employee was fired for playing the songs “Take the Money and Run” and “Son of a Preacher Man” during this weekend’s  Alabama game against SEC rival Auburn University.  The songs were an intended jab at Auburn star player and leading Heisman Trophy candidate Cam Newton. Newton is at the center of a national scandal and is accused of soliciting money to sign with a college team.

Retired Mississippi State quarterback John Bond was reportedly approached by Newton’s people to give Newton cash for him to sign at Bond’s Alma mauter. Bond reported the incident to the Mississippi University Athletic Director.

Newton was reportedly represented by Kenny Rogers, who is a former Mississippi State player himself, who now runs college football camps throughout the country. Rogers reevealed that Newton’s father, Cecil Newton expected to get anywhere between $100,000- $180,000 for his son to sign with a particular school. Cecil Newton is a pastor at the Holy Zion Center of Deliverance church in Georgia… making the song “Song of a Preacher Man” all the more comical.

Alabama has said that they have fired the part-time DJ because he violated school policy. Alabama public relations director Debbie Lane said:

“Our processes require that all music and videos played in the stadium prior to and during every game be carefully scripted and approved by a senior administrator in the Athletics Department. The former staff member deviated from the script that had been approved for the game with Auburn, and the University took steps to immediately terminate his contract.”

Maybe the DJ should have gone with something more subtle like Donna Summer’s “Work Hard for the Money.”
