Vote for your Week 7 Pammy Nominees!


Unfortunately, no bonus Pammies points are on the way for Lane Kiffin after his appearance on College GameDay Saturday.  However, there is one GameDay quote that makes the list thanks to the ridiculous, overly dramatized "controversy" surrounding JaDeveon Clowney, broken down here by SI's Richard Deitsch.  Why one of ESPN's best shows (GameDay) needed to resort to forwarding false stories (Clowney missing the team bus) at the expense of the almighty narrative and debate about him being a "team player" and/or "gritty" was puzzling.  Hopefully it was an honest mistake and not indicative of ESPN's obsession with debate and narrative infiltrating their best products.  Chris Fowler's apology, featuring one of the best quotes to mkae ESPN airwaves (below) is a good sign it was just a blip for an otherwise excellent show.

Here now all of your Pammy nominees for Week 7 after the jump…

1) "We made something out of nothing." – Chris Fowler on GameDay apologizing for misreporting the BusGate saga. If only First Take producers were listening. (via AA)

12) "If you have a heart or a pulse stay here folks." – Joe Tessitore (via fauxjustinhunter)

13) "And that is exactly what it looked like to me with Stanford. I don’t know that for a fact, but that looked like a football team that was in midterms.” – Lou Holtz explaining Stanford's loss to Utah, excpet Stanford wasn't in midterms.  Utah was. (via Larry Brown Sports)

The heavy hitters are out in full force this week as all of our Pammy leaders come strong.  Quite a few innuendo filled, probably-taken-out-of-context, giggle inducing quotes fill our Week 7 nominees.  The fact that are first quote involves “Trojans” “come” and “Giggity” is enough to let you know the direction of the Pammies this week.  Also, don’t forget to stay tuned tomorrow for our first ever Straight Outta Stockton nominees for the NFL version of the Pammies.  Who knows, we may also put the winning college and NFL quotes together each week for a vote and search for our Ultimate Quote Of The Year?

As a reminder as to how the Pammy vote works, each week we’ll nominate 15-20 quotes for you to pick the best 10.  The winning quote of the week will earn that person 10 points all the way down to 1 point for 10th.  Remember, you can vote for your favorite five quotes.  Here are your Week 7 nominees…

1) “Six Trojans are going to come” – Craig James (via SenatorGiggity)

2) “Well-dressed Joe Tessitore eats well, is a legend.” – Jesse Palmer (via BenBeach) is just killing it tonight.

4) “I think he did a one handed job right there.” – Rod Gilmore (via jamiedupler)
