The Oversigning Song: Slive sings to Houston Nutt


-It's Friday night, and Houston Nutt is at his favorite restaurant

-It's karaoke night, and of COURSE Houston is planning to sing ""you lost that loving feeling" while picturing Raymond Cotton in his head

/stage lights go down

/Mike Slive enters with a microphone




/the background music for "Apologize," by OneRepublic, begins to play in the background. 


Slive: This is a song, that I love so dearly.  Even more, than I love sweeping NCAA investigations under the rug to protect National Champions,... and I DO LOVE THAT SO MUCH.  Houston, this one goes out to you...

 /Slive begins to sing

I'm stopping you right there,

thats already 8 DT's today (Dan Mullen, in back ground: "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah")

I know you love them all, Houston,

but how will they all get to play?(they, won't, get, 2, play)

Sure you can sign a QB named Jesus

I said it's too late to oversign,

It's too laaaaaaaaaate (yeah, it, is)

I said it's too late to oversign, Houston

Complain all you want, but it's really nothing new (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

And, oh by the way, Houston
