Putting aside the mild embarrassment I feel for my hometown, my university and my state (Hope that wasn't on ESPN...) I'm astounded not by the fact these young men couldn't run a modern baitcaster but the fact that judging by the description of their casting mechanics they probably hadn't ever even picked up a rod. Who knows, maybe they got confused because they couldn't find a casting app on their Iphone. Seriously, what the hell do college-age guys do for entertainment these days? Coordinate their wardrobes? Tweet? Watch Spike TV? Update their Facebook pages? Actually go to class? Whatever it is, it's obviously not fishing. Geez, when I was at OU I showed up so infrequently because of fishing that my professors never actually knew I was enrolled. They just assumed I was a local eccentric who enjoyed sitting in on their class once or twice a semester. And I certainly wasn't alone in that regard. It's Oklahoma, for crying out loud! We do a little bass fishing here.
