Mark May's got jokes

Yes, Fat Urkel. You did do that.


You guys.

Did you know that Fat Urkel is not only one of ESPN's signature college football analysts (if we are using the words loosely, that is), but he's also a professional comedian and new media marketing genius! Look at him, using the Facebooks to tell a joke and get at his only natural enemy (besides Dr. Lou's spit towel jockey), fans of The Ohio State University.

BOOM! ROASTED!

The video he's referring to is of Brutus Buckeye getting hit-sticked from the 614 to the 440 by LB David Perkins.

But look at May Day, throwing some serious social media shade at Buckeye Nation. That should really make for some good bulletin board material the next time he's in town to play the Buckeyes.

Wait, what's that you say? Mark May sits in Bristol on Saturdays? Because he's...a professional sports analyst? And what you're saying is that someone who has a say in where the Buckeyes will be ranked just told his almost 70,000 followers that he would want to beat down said team's supporters?

Maybe it's just me, but that sounds like some Awful Announcing:

Is it a problem for ESPN and its presentation of the sport that one of its college football analysts publicly says he wants to beat down "haters" from a particular school, especially when the media has so much influence over perception and rankings? Of course it should be! But at this point, nobody should take May at his word when he's breaking down anything remotely associated with OSU next year.

Now I would love to go into a whole diatribe of why Mark May should be fired, or why he should at least not be allowed to comment on Ohio State games, or why this single Facebook post is emblematic of just how low ESPN's journalistic standards have fallen in the last decade.

But I'm above that. We at LGHL are above that. The only whacking we care about is up in Ann Arbor next year.

But we kind of like to remember this, too.
