Ok that’s a great burn by Tom Brokaw. Any time a guy shows up at a school to speak, throws their team’s hat on, and immediately takes a dump on a rival it’s OK in my book.
I will say though, in the interest of complete honesty, I do think there’s kind of a flaw with the burn when you take its location into account. I mean we ain’t giving a commencement speech in New England here. You’re in Mississippi.

Again I don’t have a horse in the race, just want to lay all the cards out on the table. Still think Brokaw’s opening crushed.
The responses from the Tide crowd, well, they didn’t think it was as funny.
Number of days until they find Tom Brokaw dead in the middle of a dessert?
