How many times have you seen an athlete interviewed on TV and thought afterward, "He goes to college?" The athlete's appearance, manner and words didn't seem to equal his ability on the field or to mesh with his level of education.

take a listen to Marshall from the Barn
"Whenever I see those crimson jerseys and crimson helmets, I feel humbled to have played football for Alabama. Other players in the NFL talk to me about their schools and their traditions. I just smile knowing the immense love Alabama fans have for our school and its football program. I'm proud to be a part of that Crimson Tide heritage."

Most Louisville fans are Eminem-esque if you take my meaning.  It's horrible.

Post game looker room interviews are pointless. The heat of the moment rush is the wrong time to gauge intelligence or speaking ability. Its just like twitter, the wrong place. These guys are not stupid and when in a formal setting you find the normal range of ability to speak formally you would find in any group.

I love the ones that follow every third word with "you know what I'm saying"

If you've never heard it you know what I'm saying it will trip you out you know what I'm saying..
"I didn't come to Alabama to win 10 games a year and be a contender. I came here to win championships, Conference Championships, and National Championships. I love it here because that's not just what I want, but what this fan base expects." -Alabama Head Football Coach Nick Saban

ROLL TIDE!!
