U.S. Olympic athlete (and former LSU track star) Lolo Jones was the guest celebrity during Saturday's episode of ESPN College GameDay, live on location at the LSU campus at Baton Rouge. Jones picked Michigan to beat Minnesota, but took a verbal shot at Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, who earlier this year claimed he could beat Olympic gold medalist Usain bolt in a race.  Jones made a bold statement by saying "Denard Robinson, you couldn't beat me in a race, let alone Usain Bolt, but I'll give you and your team the win today." And, of course, Jones picked her alma mater, LSU, to defeat top-ranked Alabama. Video via BLS.

  • WHO CARES about Lola Jones anyway and why was she on this show making stupid female comments? The last time I heard about this girl she failed to medal at the Olympics. ESPN College Game Day can and should do a lot better. Get rid of her. USMC
  • Marine 69:

    Her name is LOLO Jones, not LOLA, If you can't even COPY her name correctly how can you expect anyone to give credible consideration of your comments? Now, this is no "stupid female", your words, not mine. She has a BA from LSU. What do you have? She was an Olympican, what have you accomplished? She is a self-promoter, that is intelligent! I believe you are
    jealous? Don't know if she can beat the Michign football player, but I do know that Alabama can beat the hell out of ALL the Michigan Players (41 to 14), at Michigan!
  • flyingbottles:

    Maybe you would prefer an idiot male?
  • do you really think your hatin is goin to help anyone. I did see you boy steppin ourt to the challenge...
  • Do I have a shot at doin' this chick? She is too hot.
  • Lolo will do or say anything to try and keep her name in the limelight. She's had her 15 minutes of fame and there is no more to be had. To make a statement like she made is not just trying some self promotion, it's utterly ridiculous. So Lolo, do us all a favor and just fade away never to be heard from again.
  • Good grief people. Ever heard of the term "tongue in cheek"?

CM Punk signs with UFC, expects to debut in 2015

Is this real life? During Saturday’s UFC 181 pay-per-view broadcast, former WWE champion Phillip Brooks (pictured), better known to the world as “CM Punk,” announced he will no longer be fake fighting and will begin real fighting for the UFC. “This is something that’s been in the back of my mind for a very, very long time,” Brooks sated. “I have a background in...

Adrian Peterson: I’m just now entering the prime of my career

NFL running backs—especially those that are focal points for their respective teams—endure a great deal of physical contact during the course of their careers. They tend to have shorter shelf lives than other players—and must battle wear and tear—with their production beginning to decline in their late 20s, if not before. But don’t tell that to Minnesota Vikings running...

Ohio State player wearing Kosta Karageorge's No. 53

Ohio State is in the Big Ten Championship Game today, but the program is still feeling the very recent loss of walk-on Kosta Karageorge, who was found dead last weekend. It has been an understandably emotional week for OSU, and one of Karageorge’s teammates, defensive tackle Michael Bennett, will be honoring him during today’s game in Indianapolis. Bennett has traded in his usual...

Warriors owner: No one in organization liked Mark Jackson

By now it’s not a secret that the Golden State Warriors and former head coach Mark Jackson didn’t end their marriage on a high note. Jackson, who led the team to two consecutive playoff appearances and 51 wins a season ago, was fired following the playoffs this past spring. And despite Jackson’s success in Oakland, the Warriors have taken their performance to an entirely new...

Report: Anonymous teammate blasts Robert Griffin III

It’s becoming more and more difficult to see how the Robert Griffin III era in Washington can continue after this season.   Griffin was benched a couple of weeks ago in favor of Colt McCoy, and while reports indicated the Redskins haven’t given up on RG3 just yet, a TMZ Sports report Saturday morning indicates the locker room might indicate otherwise. An anonymous Redskins...

Cam Newton on struggles: ‘You realize rainy days don’t last’

The team tied the...Read More The post Cam Newton on season-long struggles...
