Sometimes if you don’t know the answer to a questions, it’s best to keep your mouth shut especially when it has to do with the insane cult that makes up college football fandom. While NFL fans are crazy, they can’t hold a candle the radicalism that runs rampant throughout college football and you don’t want to get on the wrong side of them.
I mean, someone literally poisoned a tree over a rivalry — not even mother nature is safe from college football fandom.
This Jeopardy! contestant may also not be so safe from college football fans down south, as she managed to mix up two of the biggest schools in the entire country and threw in the most talked about player over the last two years just for good measure. On Wednesday’s all-new episode of Jeopardy!, one contestant thought she knew where Johnny Manziel went to college but she couldn’t have been more wrong.
That’s probably the single worst answer she should have given. If she had simply just made up a fictional team she may have been better off than she is having stated Johnny Manziel went to Alabama.
You don’t cross Crimson Tide fans, and let’s not forget the entire Aggie nation that she just spurred with her answer.
Here’s to hoping that if this question ever pops up again on Jeopardy!, whoever answers has done their home work as there’s already enough rage in the world to go and have someone incite the anger of both Texas A&M and Alabama.
That’s just too much insanity for one section of the country.
