After a segment on ESPN’s College GameDay about the history of the signs, they focused on jorts. The jort fashion statement was a subject of the sign documentary and led ESPN reporter Tom Rinaldi to sport a pair on the show.

I can’t hate on his white legs because I’m pretty sure I’d pull off the jorts with the same skill. My legs are probably a similar shade of white as well. Got to give Rinaldi props for wearing them and going for it.
You didn’t see Kirk Herbstreit or Chris Fowler volunteering. Quite frankly it is somewhat surprising that they didn’t have Lee Corso do it. He is always down for some self-humiliation in an effort to get some laughs out. Maybe ESPN was afraid he’d get too enthusiastic and drop another F-bomb.
