USC has made college football cool again. Like an NCAA version of a Lakers game. Once Snoop Dogg, Will Ferrell, Nick Lachey, et al started showing up on the Trojans sidelines, it seems that other programs scrambled for their own celebrities. Like the University of Texas and Mance (Matthew McConaughey and Lance Armstrong).
Credit to Ohio State for saying enough is enough. The university denied a ticket request for Nickelback indicating that the boundaries for media whoredom does have its limits.
Hero and associate athletics director Steve Snapp was the man who turned down the request.
"I told then, 'Not that I don't appreciate your music, but even if you were John Lennon and calling for four for the original Beatles, I couldn't do it.
"Not even if you came out and sang, 'With Arms Wide Open' at halftime. Oh, and Sammy Hagar called; he wants his hair back."
Alright, that last part was embellished. But congratulations to Ohio State, karma is on your side.
