Clay Travis, author of Dixieland Delight and On Rocky Top, decided to spend his recent segment on the Paul Finebaum radio show proving that his intellect was superior to that of the show's callers.

For those who have listened to the Finebaum show with any frequency the act of proving mental superiority over most of his callers is about as impressive as tripping blind people as they attempt to cross the street.

The author's contempt for the callers was rivaled only by his inability to exhibit any degree of decorum when questioned about his recently published views on Mark Ingram's receipt of the Heisman Trophy.

In a display that may finally propel him into the rarefied air inhabited by such media greats as Flava flav, Jerry Springer, and Danny Bonaduce. Travis invoked such phrases as “why don’t you ask your wife?” and “Can you spell that?”

This is not the first time Travis has displayed a complete lack of couth when given the spotlight. For those who don't remember, Travis is the man who asked Tim Tebow if he was a virgin during SEC media days earlier this year.

After witnessing Mr. Travis’ behavior, I am left with not only the concrete knowledge that he is a Douche, but with serious questions about what his association with the University of Tennessee and his acceptance by the Vol's fan base says about the direction that program is heading.

Has the culture at Tennessee really deteriorated to a level where the behavior of Lane Kiffin, Clay Travis and the cast of South Park are acceptable benchmarks for conduct?


I hope not...
