Peter Dyakowski is an offensive lineman for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL, a former mullet-wearing champion at LSU, and was a contestant on Monday night's Jeopardy. Despite a nice rally out of a negative score, Dyakowski found himself trailing headed into Final Jeopardy. Then came an apparent godsend: COLLEGE SPORTS QUESTION!
That's a clever question, I think, and you can probably think of the answer with a bit of consideration. I'll give you until the end of the post.
Meanwhile, Dyakowski had some trouble:
I suppose an LSU football player has absolutely no reason to know anything about stinky-ass Syracuse or the stinky-ass Ivy League or whether stinky-ass Syracuse has anything to do with the stinky-ass Ivy League. And hey, Dyakowski wagered nothing on his answer, so it didn't matter.
Meanwhile, another contestant had to say a racial slur to correctly answer a clue Monday night!
Yuck. (That category's clues were in the form of word problems, which didn't work as well as they'd hoped, so this is several shades of dumb.)
Oh, it was the Penn Quakers by the way. And the Ivy League *does* have a weird number of color-named teams. Never thought about that.
Update: To Dyakowski's credit, "Orangemen" does refer to a religious group of sorts. Syracuse are just the "Orange" now and definitely aren't in the Ivy League, but this answer wasn't totally out of nowhere.
