Speaking ill of the Dead...

R.I.P., J.P.

CBS Sportsline's Clay Travis brings us his spot-on eulogy of Jefferson Pilot Sports.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Even so, I might have given the godfather of southern football frustration, Dave Rowe, a little more attention.

Clay bids farewell to a high water mark in flaming turdery. A weekly event so detestable that it shook the mettle of even the strongest fan/drunk. The 11:30 AM kickoff.

A torturous game that caused students and alumni alike to squint and curse in the merciless mid-day sun as they endured remnants of friday night's murderous hangover.

However, JP will be missed.

Yes, the disheveled, alcoholic uncle of SEC broadcasts did serve a greater purpose. It brought us more Deep South College Football. And that, my friend, can't be a bad thing. No matter how many Daves they shuffle in front of the camera.

"Well Dave, as Dave has said, Kentucky is going to need to score points to beat Vanderbilt today."
