# 007 - June 6, 2011 A.T. (After Tressel) - DJBC Classic

59:50 minutes (54.78 MB)

Complete with a new intro and outro, this re-packaged DJBC Classic takes us to yet another Early Classic, Show # 7, first aired on June 6, 2011 (hence the first part of the title). The A.T. part was in nod that it was the first show since the "resignation*" of Jim Tressel from the B*ckeyes Football Team one week prior on Memorial Day 2011, capping off the Tattoogate Scandal at THE Ohio. The day after this show originally aired, then-B*ckeyes Quarterback (and the real star of Tattoogate) Terrelle Pryor was declared ineligible by the NCAA, and then obviously flatulated in the NFL as a Wide Receiver after a failed stint as a 3rd String Quarterback in the NFL.

In this show, we poke fun at the Scandal with these two sketches:
- A Cold Open Sketch with Barack Obama who announces the departure of Tressel from THE Ohio.
- Taylor Swift on "The Dating Game" with Terrelle Pryor (as Bachelor # 2). Coincidentally, Swift had a concert in Columbus that week, hence that sketch.

Also in the Show:
- The Daytime Emmys Preview (the last one with "As the World Turns" - RIP)
- The (edited) Weekend Warrior (ya know, that Intro and Outro were gonna come at a hefty price tag)

A lot has changed in the decade and 370-plus shows since that show first aired, and it's always great to go back at the infancy of this show on WCRS.
