It’s college graduation season, so that means a bunch of important and famous people will travel all over the country to give inspirational speeches at colleges they most likely didn’t even go to. That was the case this morning with Tom Brokaw at Ole Miss. The dude is from South Dakota and he’s speaking to a bunch of rich southerners.

I can’t criticize him too much though because he definitely¬†understands some SEC hate. Right out of the gate in his speech he blasted Alabama.

Great job by him to get the crowd on his side early. All you have to do is trash a couple of Ole Miss rivals and the rest of the speech is a breeze. All the tension and pressure immediately disappears.

"I'm glad I'm speaking at Ole Miss. If I were speaking at Alabama I would have to use smaller words & shorter sentences." –@tombrokaw #WAOM
