08:18 AM ET 09.19 | Football and bow ties don't often mix, unless, apparently, you are AJ McCarron. [McCarron] showed up for the Tide's opener at Cowboys Stadium with a blue bow tie. He wore a pink-and-white checked bow tie before the home opener against Western Kentucky. How many bow ties does he have? "I'm actually getting more and more," McCarron said. ... "I wanted to try something different. Actually, my mom and everybody in my family, that's what they got me for my birthday. I really didn't get to choose what I got. They all got me that. It's definitely been pretty cool, though." Does he have a favorite? "I just got a bunch of new ones," McCarron said. "I got a breast cancer bow tie and then a leukemia colored bow tie. I got a bunch of cool ones that we'll see."

Maybe he is a Fan of Louis Farrakan, he's an idiot but not from Columbus.

Must be a REALLY slow news day. I know the current love affair with Gump is strong, but this is a reach for a thread.

What's next, a rivoting story about the style of socks the ND QB wears? Inquiring minds want to know.......

Maybe this isn't a freaking news story. This is the kind of crap that makes al.com a joke. Talk about football. Who cares what they wear on the way to the game?

Appears they pooped in his chocolate pudding and stirred it up before he had a chance to notice. ;-)

I've had the opportunity to talk to E Gordon Gee several times. He is quite personable, and can speak intelligently on many topics...obviously, college football is not one of them. He had done a tremendous job on moving tOSU up the rankings in many important facets....he has helped to increase the requirements to get into the school, he has helped to increase the grant moneys being allocated to tOSU in many research fields, he has helped to increase the standings of the Hospital, etc, etc, etc.

(but he needs to shut up about football.)

He needs to fire Gene Smith.

I'm hoping he took the nickname of B/CS, not the town I grew up :)

I didn't recall the mayor of Colleyville ever wearing a bowtie, and he's an investment guy like fjj
