Racing champion, Jeff Gordon, teams up with Pepsi MAX to pull a prank on an unsuspecting automotive journalist, Travis Okluski.

 Okluski, of the web site Jalopnik.com, had questioned the authenticity of the original Pepsi “Test Drive” commercial.

I’m sure Gordon proved his point.

In case you missed it, here’s the original.

Paul Finebaum Takes Aim at "Jim from Tuscaloosa"

Paul Finebaum Takes Aim at “Jim from Tuscaloosa”

By Finebaum Fan.

“I-Man”, a popular “hall-of-fame” caller to The Paul Finebaum Show, added yet another call to his repertoire today.

He began his call by discussing Finebaum’s short-lived collegiate football career at the University of Tennessee.  Finebaum, as everyone knows, was a highly touted quarterback prospect from Memphis whose career was tragically cut short by a knee injury before he was ever able to take the field.

“I-Man” continued (through discussing Larry’s call from yesterday) to a prepared slam of “Darriel from Columbus” but was interrupted by Finebaum.

It seemed Finebaum had “Jim from Tuscaloosa” on his mind.

“Jim” is a controversial character on the show whose exploits are well documented on this site.

Other than using the Finebaum show as a mouthpiece for his ill-placed rants, “Jim” likes to spew his venom anonymously on Twitter.

We would have included a photo of “Jim” to the right, but as far as we know – none exist.

As long as you don’t offend “Jim from Tuscaloosa”, you can follow his Twitter account here.

For your listening pleasure, we present the following audio of the call.

The day after his interview with James Franklin went viral around the college football world, ESPN radio host, Paul Finebaum, took time on air to reflect on it with his audience.

Franklin, head football coach at Penn State, has been criticized for “poaching” five recruits who had committed to Vanderbilt – a practice popularly known as “flipping recruits”.

Finebaum began the show with an analysis of the interview.

“That was not something I was in the weeds waiting for.  I’ve been friends with James Franklin for a while.”

“I’ve been a fan of his for a long time.  I think my record is pretty public on that. This isn’t a coach that I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into.”

He went on to elaborate on the thoughts he had during the interview.

“I was expecting James Franklin, the person I know and have great respect for, to give an honest answer.”

“I just felt like I needed to try to get an answer because he went into ‘coach speak'”.

“That’s all there was to it… But I just felt like I needed to explain that.”

“I’ve always liked him. Yesterday’s interview didn’t change any of that.  I just felt like he gave a really bad answer…”

Franklin appeared on the Dan Patrick Show in January to discuss recruiting etiquette and his reasoning for flipping Vanderbilt commits to Penn State.

The Auburn Tigers lost five-star recruit Rashaad Evans to cross-state rival, The University of Alabama, from right out of their own backyard.

And according to Tammy, perhaps Auburn’s most well-known fan, “It don’t matter… Paul “Bam” Finebaum!”

Listen to the entire call as Tammy explains, “If he don’t wanna come to Auburn, we don’t want ’em no way!”

Auburn High School’s Rashaan Evans shocked the college football world by choosing The University of Alabama over hometown Auburn University – and it only took “a second”.

Evans is a fast five-star linebacker who is expected to assist the Tide in slowing the quicker “spread-type offenses” which have become more dominate in the SEC.

Here’s what “Twitterverse” has to say about it:
