Meet Daniel John Lee of Alaska, a traveling "street preacher" and self-proclaimed "prophet" who came to OU in March to cause a scene.

The guy in the quoted tweet only swung back after Lee swung at him first with his bullhorn.

Daniel John Lee travels across the country to agitate students and film their reactions to post online.

The University of Oklahoma was no different. Lee made a scene that generated outrage, filmed it, cried victim the moment he could, and posted it all. Screenshot of a video of a crowd of students gathered around
Verbally harassing gay and non-Christian students isn't the only thing Lee does.

Racist remarks from Daniel John Lee escalated during a visit to SDSU. For campus safety, university police actually asked him to leave and return with a permit.…

THREAD: Saturday gave us such gorgeous football weather… we had a busy afternoon as we had planned to stop in at three different tailgates. @tamu @aggiefootball @los_aggies (1/x)
I was invited by @AggieNetwork to attend a pre-game event where I had the honor of meeting with Porter Garner III ‘79 for a few minutes.

I then made my way up to the Press Box at #KyleField to set up and test out our sound and connections. (2/x)
Always great to have a quiet moment in a near empty stadium and it was wonderful to greet Miss Betty, one of the wonderful elevator operators. I came back down and it was great to see Coach P and Emily at Aggie Park while Lisa, Max and I made our way to @tamhn_aggies tailgate 3/x

Ready for the #CFB Analytics Spring Top 40? Here we go. This Power Ranking is derived from a model which utilizes full Coach Staff efficiency metrics, roster talent, & returning production among other metrics. No opinion here, I just regurgitate the numbers. #NoOpinionJustNumbers
40 #Kentucky #BBN #SEC Power Rating: 61.726
Returning Production for the Wildcats may be a problem. At 39.72%, it puts them at 113th in the country. The schedule is manageable tho drawing Ole Miss & Miss State out the West. #CFB
39 #Washington #PurpleReign #Pac12
Power Rating: 62.271
Really like the new coaching staff in Seattle. Should put them in a better position to win. Roster talent purge from the prev regime will have an early effect (last 2 classes were 39th, 86th) but the ship has been righted.

Alright #CFBPlayoff viewers. Lets go through this week's poll. Once again, it was, as it always has been, predictable. The model was off an average of 1 spot per team for the entire Top 25 poll this week. So let's take a look at some resumes shall we? #CFB 🧵
If you took a peak at this projection yesterday, you were prepared for alot of what you saw last night. The resumes are all laid out very similarly to the way the Playoff Committee views them. #ThereIsNoEyeTest
25 #HailState 6-4
SOS: 29, QW: 4, T25W: 2, GC: 3.3

Despite the horrible game control at 3.3, MSU snuck its way into the poll. They modeled at 26 so this isn't all that surprising. They are riding their good SOS, 4 QWs, and 2 T25Ws at this point. No surprise.

Ok, lets talk #CFBPlayoff Poll. Time is limited this morning so lets just run through the Top 15. For those of you who signed up as a patron (thank you) or those who have followed long; you know the drill. There is no eye test. The committee uses a well defined process. 🧵
If you read this on Monday, last night was all old news and you already knew what to expect. If you like the suspense of the four letter network's reveal show be warned. #SpoilerAlert
15 #BYU
SOS: 44, QW: 5, T25W: 0, GC: 4.9

#BYU modeled at 17, so no surprise here. Good SOS, Tied for the most QWs in the poll. Game Control is low, but with a SOS in the Top 50, they'll get a pass. No surprise at 15.

Mi 4º hilo de Tradiciones habla de la leyenda del “12th Man” de Texas A&M, que ahora inspira a una de las gradas más ruidosas del College Football. Lugar emblemático. Especial. Un auténtico jugador número 12. #GigEm

(Si os gusta el hilo, agradezco RT)
Esta leyenda del jugador nº12 ha pasado de generación en generación y aún sigue (y seguirá) inspirando a la sección de estudiantes de la universidad de Texas A&M durante sus partidos. Ellos son ahora el “12th Man”. #GigEm

La 1ª vez que se usó el término “12th Man” (que se tenga constancia) fue en una revista de la Universidad de Minnesota en septiembre de 1900, hablando de los hinchas como “una misteriosa influencia en los equipos”. Los fans empezaron a ser llamados el 12º jugador de los equipos.
