clay You may or may not know who Clay Travis is. For many of you, a Nashville radio host/UT fan is probably not your biggest concern, and thus the name and the beard are foreign to you. However if you are a major SEC college football fan or you live within the Nashville area, you probably know Clay Travis as the top Kentucky hater in the state of Tennessee. He likes to make fun of Kentucky fans for sport and makes no bones about suggesting that Kentucky fans are the dumbest in major college sports. Over the years I have had a back and forth relationship with Clay, generally liking him, but at times getting frustrated with his methods. Nevertheless, he is an intelligent guy, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy watching him eat crow. Today, Clay Travis tweeted that he made a $1,000 bet on Kentucky to win under 4.5 games in football this year. For the $1,000 bet, Clay will win $689, meaning of course that UK is getting odds. Sometimes I am accused of being negative about the football program (I don't think that is a fair charge, but so be it) and some think I am a non-believer in the team this year. So what better way to put an end to those charges than putting my money where my mouth is. So with Clay's pronouncement against Kentucky football, KSR will go the other way...$1,000 on the Cats to win at least 5, while also getting odds in the process. Here we go Joker, I got faith...let's get it done.
