If it's March Madness, then it's time for my annual Marshall Henderson GIF Jamboree!


marshall_hendersonauburn.0.gif



Since I couldn't find my original post, I'll breakdown the wonderfulness of this GIF again. But to recap, this is Ole Miss guard Marshall Henderson, after hitting the game-winning free throws agains Auburn, AT Auburn back in 2013. As you can see, Henderson was not shy! Marshall was kind of like the Johnny Manziel of college basketball - extremely talented, but with a whole lot of baggage. Anyway, let's break down this 4-second thing of beauty:

1. Marshall Henderson himself. Just look at that! He's SUPPOSED to be flaunting the Ole Miss logo on his jersey, but it's more of a Look-At-My-Abs kind of move. Maybe he's "flapping" his jersey as his own kind of "War Eagle" bird move?

2. The old man in the orange sweater who stands up. I think he's saying "Come at me, bro!" but I'm not sure. I don't know who he is but judging by his seat location, he's one of Auburn's top athletic supporters

3. The security guard next to Orange Sweater Man. He's laughing his ass off! I love that guy, especially since he makes NO move whatsoever to stop Henderson, or protect him

4. Speaking of laughing guys, how about the bearded announcer in the blue vest? Awesome! I think he might be an Ole Miss announcer, since his vest is the same color as Henderson's jersey but then again, Auburn also uses blue. At any rate, his beard is just great

5. His announcing buddy in the white sweater is not quite as thrilled, with an "I've seen this before" kind of look on his face. Which probably means those guys ARE Ole Miss announcers, because this kind of stuff was common with Henderson

6. OK, let's get to the Auburn students! First off, moving left-to-right, we have Double-Bird Guy. He enters a second into the GIF, and literally does move left-to-right. He cuts in front of Get The F*** Outta Here With That Bulls*** Guy, who really needed to step his game up

7. Behind Double Bird Guy is ANOTHER Double Bird Guy. He's got an orange-and-white striped shirt, and a bad haircut. His double bird game is not as strong as that of the guy in front of him

8. I think my FAVORITE guy is "Come At Me Bro!" Guy. He's the guy in the white hat, waving at Henderson to come and get some. And then he hides behind Single Bird Guy. Not representing Auburn's manliness very well, bro!

9. Single Bird Guy (unwittingly) becomes a human shield for Come At Me Bro Guy. At least he didn't try to hide behind Old Man in Orange Sweater

10. The we have Short Dude Who Gets Hit By A Poster. He shrugs it off like a playa, then bends down to pick it up. Most polite guy on The Plains!

11. Last but not least on the front row, we have Ding Dang Gosh Darn It Guy. I call him Ding Dang Gosh Darn It Guy because even though he gets off a single bird, the way he removes his hat to accentuate his yelling is just so cornpone. His friends probably call him Farmer Ted

12. Remember the sign that hit Short Dude Who Gets Hit By A Poster? We don't know who threw it, but the reaction of the two girls behind our frat bros is great! First, we have the girl in the blue print top, who is absolutely flabbergasted and disgusted that an Auburn War Eagle Tiger fan would throw a poster. Her friend to the right in the orange shirt is just scared. If any of the frat bros had tried to protect her, I bet she would have married him right there on the spot

I think I covered everyone. Feel free to add your comments to my favorite GIF of all time as we enjoy this college basketball seaons!

It's too bad the young men actually doing the work don't get a slice of the profits.

But they get a free college education including room and board. As one who just paid for two of those, I can tell you it would cost that young man at least $50,000 if he was paying for it himself. And if he went to a private school like Duke?

Try $200,000.

I know where you're coming from but it's not like these guys aren't getting something of great value when they get a scholarship.

Think about this: what if the NCAA said, "OK, you get a cut of the money. But you have to pay for your college education out of your own pocket. And you have to pay just like everyone else does - each semester up front and in full. No special treatment for you just because you play ball". Do you think that would be good or bad for college athlete?

I do agree that NCAA basketball is hard to get behind, since all the best players are one and done.

A free college education is nothing to sneeze at, but we're talking about a tournament that generated $1 billion last year. And if my name & likeness is being used to sell a school & merchandise, I want my cut - that's the American way (I thought). To me, these young men aren't "student-athletes", they're semi-pros (or hired guns). Most of them won't make the pros, so why not set up an account for the basketball & football players to draw upon when they leave school?

Let me say this - FUCK the NCAA. Next to Congress, FIFA & the Olympic Committee, they're a bunch of crooks & hypocrites. They still want to pretend big-time college basketball / football is "amateur" athletics.......please. They also play favorites - they turned a blind eye to what Sam Gilbert did for John Wooden's "sainted" UCLA program, but they hounded Jerry Tarkanian for years.

Trust me - as a graduate of SMU and a current supporter of Ole Miss football, I know EXACTLY what a POS the NCAA is.

But I have yet to see a plan that compensates players fairly. For instance, we can probably figure out what Trae Young deserves, but what does Jordan Tucker of Duke, or Mike McGuirl of Kansas State deserve? (These are the two benchiest bench-players on those teams.)

And if you paid the players, would you still offer scholarships? I'm not sure the concept of giving a free ride to someone you are also going to be paying is workable. I'm sure those students who have to pay their own way AND are not going to get paid for anything they contribute to the school would have a problem with that.

It is NOT an easy issue. But definitely - F the NCAA. Do an image search sometime for "Cars driven by Alabama football players". I'm a major honk for the SEC but come on.

Rodeo, I think this is a good solution;

https://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/09/sports/a-way-to-start-paying-college-athletes.html

Something has to be done, because the current system is a joke and has been corrupt since the 1950's. When I see coaches getting million-dollar contracts plus phat sneaker deals, while these young men (many from poor & working-class backgrounds) get nothing, that shit is fucked up.

Thanks, interesting article! I like the idea about players being paid to endorse stuff, sign autogrpahs, etc. I'll read it more in-depth later.
