    They totally buried the lede here. There’s a college football award for the best placekick holder?

    He and his buddy also won the award for Worst Decision to Start a Fight on a Piss-Soaked Bathroom Floor.

    while I try to avoid barstool and all of its ilk, the comments on its OU site are illuminating. About 85 percent are pro Jones, saying he is the victim.

    The Holder of the Year story is actually a pretty good one. Minnesota had a punter/holder a few years ago who was something of a character, and decided to originate and give himself the award for laughs. The thing went a bit viral, and he turned it into an ongoing thing; he formed a foundation, and they tie the annual award into a fundraiser for the charity of the winner's choice.

    Bar fights are stupid. As a bartender, I used to have to deal with them every so often.

    Bar fights during a pandemic are even dumber.

    "Trying to find sympathy for someone who picks a fight in a bar with someone they think is weaker and gets absolutely destroyed. Trying hard. Not very successful."*
