    The NCAA is quickly losing its power.

    Jeez, OBJ is usually so understated. It's odd for him to put himself in the spotlight like this.

    It reminds me of when Kevin Hart tried to get on the super bowl trophy stage a few years back and was telling the bouncer "do you know who I am?"

    Some people just can't stay away from the spotlight for two seconds.

    I believe Clonefan32 sarcastically answered your #1 question.....

    Because he's a drama queen. He's the kind of guy to have a poster of himself on his bedroom ceiling.

    Except that LSU invited a lot (I heard as many as 60) of former players to be on the sideline during the game (which would also give them access to the field and locker room during the victory celebration).

    I was driving Monday and listening to the pregame show on ESPN radio and the sideline reporter made the comment regarding what I typed above.

    Part of OBJ's master plan to get out of Cleveland.

    I heard there’s another video where he slapped a cop in the ass or something in the locker room after the game

    I joked about this above, but seriously guy, let the kids have their moment. Why show up and make it all about you?

    Yup. There's a cop in the locker room power tripping the LSU guys for smoking cigars (no smoking in the Super Dome) OBJ gets involved. Come on man they just won the damn National Championship let them celebrate.

    See post #9. LSU invited them and wanted them there.

    Which is absolutely fine. How many of the other 60 former players are we talking about?

    There's a difference between showing up and rooting on your former team and handing out $100 at the 50 yard line.

    I'm sure I'm more bothered by it than any of the kids are, so in that regard I guess who cares. But I guess I'm just sick of his self-promotion.

    I guess I look at Burrow. He gets asked about it and answers honestly and now there's talk of LSU and NCAA doing an investigation. Kid should have never been in that spot.

    He probably had some kind of decision matrix set up in a spreadsheet.
