Back in October, Jon Gruden sunk his own pirate ship, titanically. An excavation of his ten-year old e-mails, within which he roasted everyone in the NFL using some pretty colorful language, left Gruden as cancel culture’s latest victim. Riding off into the sunset in his final press conference as Raiders head coach, he boldly proclaimed he didn’t have a racist bone in his body. We haven’t heard from him since.
Under similar scrutiny, Urban Meyer has been, as my good friend J-Dub so eloquently puts it, engaging in scumbaggery for nearly as long. Earlier this season, on a trip to his home state of Ohio, Meyer was photographed at a bar with his hands on a woman that was not his wife. This week, with his Jaguars continuing to struggle, NFL.com reported leaks, allegedly from within his locker room, that Meyer has had run-ins with coaches, players and has all but lost the team. Their recent 20-0 loss wasn’t awe-inspiring but then again, nor have their last five, which they’ve lost by a combined 83 points.
It’s been a difficult season for these two head football coaches who at one point in their careers never had to pay for a meal in the entire state of Florida. Since that’s clearly no longer the case, I figured l would host a caption contest in their dishonor.
A while back, my good friend ManRam sent me this picture he found floating around the internet. I couldn’t help but chuckle (chuckie?) at these two, hootin’ and hollerin’ at some gala back in the day, enjoying the open bar, probably not tipping their bartenders and counting their millions without a care in the world or without fear of repercussion: Meyer with his bottle of Bud and Gruden posing as if to knock him out.
Little did they know they’d eventually both be knocked out, Gruden already long gone and Meyer’s ice getting thinner by the Sunday.
So, have at it, readers. The person to come up with the most entertaining caption to this photo below will receive a t-shirt with this photo and their caption printed on the front.
That’s assuming you’d have the nerve to wear it in public.
