URBAN MEYER: GOOD COACH, BAD PITCHMAN

New, 23 comments

Comedy in college football comes in many forms, but none are more sublime than coaches' appearances in commercial endorsements, which often feature everything that drives coaches mad on the field: poor execution, lifeless performance, and fumbling of key lines even on the best takes.

We are compelled to love Urban Meyer's candor: We Are the Boys digs up a Jacksonville.com article where Meyer admits what a horrible pitchman he is, saving special ire for his own performance in a hilariously inept Red Baron commercial with basketball coach Billy Donovan:

“I’m awful. I saw that one, too. You could see how horrible I was. It was horrible. Even my players said it was awful.”

We are openly soliciting all readers now: PLEASE SEND US YOUR TERRIBLE COACHING ENDORSEMENT STORIES! Providing links to a captured video clip will earn you a post written entirely devoted to praising how cool you are, and we're offering a special TEN DOLLAR BOUNTY for any of the following high-priority targets:

1. Tommy Tuberville's legendarily bad Kroger Commercials.

2. The aforementioned Urban Meyer Red Baron spot.

3. A mythical Ed Orgeron Hummer ad that a reader suggested he be fired for doing.
