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.

  • 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"?

Russell Wilson: Seahawks’ receivers ‘as fast as it gets’

The last time we saw the Seahawks' offense in action, they were lighting up the scoreboard en route to a 43-8 victory in Super Bowl XLVIII. Since then, the group has added depth, notably in the wide receiver corps, with the addition of second-round speedster Paul Richardson. Quarterback Russell Wilson expects his weapons -- new and old -- to blaze past the competition. “Yeah...

Rick Pitino: Russ Smith is unguardable

Photo | Getty Images It’s very common to see college coaches talk up their former players prior to the NBA Draft. Not only is it a good look for coaches to send players to the next level, but these coaches love nothing more than seeing their former players succeed after their collegiate careers. It should come as no surprise that Rick Pitino feels that his former All American guard...

How Jose Bautista successfully changed his approach this year

One of the remaining great unknowns is finding a reasonable way to evaluate the performances of coaches. With managers, we have only so much of the picture. It’s the same with hitting coaches and pitching coaches, and while sometimes we can credit a pitching coach for helping a guy learn a new pitch or smooth […]

David Ortiz upset over Red Sox-Rays suspensions

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz is absolutely irate because Major League Baseball apparently has some double standards when it comes to punishment. MLB didn’t fine or suspend Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price for hitting Ortiz in the back with a pitch last Friday. But on Tuesday, the league suspended Red Sox starting pitcher Brandon Workman for six games after throwing a pitch behind...

Ben Tate thinks Johnny Manziel attention is ridiculous

Cleveland Browns running back Ben Tate claimed again on Thursday that rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel is getting far too much attention from the media. Tate also said that if he were Manziel, he would be wary of the all the exposure he’s getting. Tate signed with the Browns on a two-year, $7 million deal this offseason, and other than Manziel he’s probably the team’s biggest...

Can Peyton Manning last three more years?

Peyton Manning is, almost unarguably, the best player in the NFL. And coincidentally, he’s also the oldest position player still starting in this league. But Mike Klis of the Denver Post thinks Manning actually has three years left in him, predicting that he’ll play out the entire five-year deal he originally signed with the Broncos in 2012. Is that realistic? Well, his neck...
