Jeopardy Contestants Awful at Football Trivia (Video)

Soooo, you know those times when you watch Jeopardy and feel like a complete fool because you’re atrocious at African geography and inept at recalling Shakespeare soliloquies? Those times when you want to throttle the smug Alex Trebek for making you feel likes your years in higher education were worthless? Those times when your trivia nescience makes you want to cry? Yeah, this isn’t one of those times.

The Jeopardy contestants from last night’s episode were given a series of NCAA Football questions (or answers, technically, if you want to be a jerk about the whole Jeopardy process) that even the most inebriated and/or young fan would know. Of course, they failed miserably.

The only redeeming part of the video is when Trebek remembers to include the “the” before “THE Ohio State University,” because–and this is in tOSU’s charter–for every forgotten “the” when the school name is said, a tattoo parlor in Columbus is forced to give out free ink for the day.
