College GameDay was in Tallahassee, Fla. on Saturday morning in advance of the Florida State-Miami clash (8 p.m. EST ABC). ESPN producers went rogue on the show’s guest picker, selecting Jake Owen.
He’s a country music artist (and Florida State fan).
Owen is also most likely the most hated man in Lubbock, Tex. and the entire Midwest after his comments bashing Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury (“I have a hard time pulling for a team where the coach spends too much time looking in the mirror.”) and the Big 1G (“Does the Big 10 still have football teams?”).
Twitter users showed no mercy, jumping all over Owen, his weak Seminole chop, his long hair and his sweaty armpits.
The record label isn’t going to appreciate those declining spins and sales, Jake.
