15 minutes of fame. I enjoyed his videos but he alienated people he needs now there are consequences. To him it may be worth it if he really believes it but I suspect he got caught up in the emotions of the moment and did not think about that part of it. Pure speculation..
His shtick is well known. If the SEC does indeed pull the plug on football, what will he do...besides really fade into oblivion? If he wants to get his name out there again, he juuuuuuuuuuuuuust might want to find a way to explore a different avenue than instigating and denying.
