Utah State’s "Wild" Bill Sproat Sells Out, Misses WAC Tournament Title Game For ESPN Commercial Shoot
There were a pair of man cans missing from the Utah State cheering section this weekend during the WAC Tournament Championship game.
The spot usually reserved for “Wild” Bill Sproat, the Aggies student with a giant rack, was absent for the game against New Mexico State and an automatic bid to the Big Dance.
So where was the mammoth free throw heckler? Bill was selling out his team to shoot a commercial for ESPN. New Mexico St. made five of six free throws when shooting towards the Aggies student section, reports the Deseret News. This is inexcusable.
Of course ESPN couldn’t keep their hands off Bill during March Madness. He just had to be in Charlotte this weekend, according to Bill’s Twitter account.
It’s unclear what the shoot is for or when it’ll run, but Bill got to hang out with Molly Qerim, a hot chick from ESPNU.
Is this some sort of conspiracy from the World Wide Leader?
Take the fat kid away from Utah State, make him hang out with a hot chick, feed him like a king and make him hole up in North Carolina.
Were both teams going to make the NCAA tournament no matter who won the WAC? It’s highly likely. But New Mexico State then saw what happened to Mississippi State.
Let this be a lesson to all you super fans out there: don’t let yourself sellout for an ESPN commercial when your team is at the summit of its season.
It just looks really, really bad.
