Ryan Lochte Picks Auburn to Win the LSU / Texas A&M Matchup

Ryan Lochte is a well-known Olympic swimmer. For today, however, he was a guest “analyst” on ESPN’s College Gameday live from the Swamp in Gainesville, Florida.

Not known to be the brightest bulb in the box, Lochte did a first-class job of solidifying his reputation as such, by choosing a team not even playing in a matchup to win said matchup. When asked to choose his winner between the LSU Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies— the premier game on the early-morning slate– Lochte chose the Auburn Tigers.

Yes, Auburn– a team not participating in College Station as we speak.

Bro. Bro. No, bro.

Here it is, in all it’s glory:


Here’s a word to the wise for a few of the parties involved:

— Hey ESPN, maybe you should consider who you bring on Gameday and ask to give their “insight” on what is arguably the day’s biggest game. Just a thought, but I’m far from a programming wizard.

— Ryan Lochte– stick with the pool my friend. The waves will be much calmer there and you won’t have to strain that beautiful brain of yours any longer.

It’ll be ok bro.
