Tuesday Question: One of Pedigree

New, 34 comments

Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is . . .

Does it bother you when Michael Oher, Mike Wallace, et al don't name Ole Miss in MNF or SNF introductions?

Michael Oher recently proclaimed that he was "Michael Oher, North Memphis" on Sunday Night Football. This, coupled with Mike Wallace's decision to say he's "Mike Wallace, O. Perry Walker" and Benjarvus' decision to say something else that isn't Ole Miss has, has caused a stir for some of our fans. Some fans see it as a slap in the face to the school that got them to the NFL. Others see it as no more than an homage to their roots.

What do you think?
