Comedy: John Cena Lampoons The University Of Alabama’s Football Players’ Academic Performance On SNL (Video)

Three judges (Beck Bennett, Aidy Bryant, Kenan Thompson) play favorites while reviewing students’ (Mikey Day, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena) projects.

Okay, knowing that @ojones1 is on the squad and that he is an Alabama alum and die-hard Tide fan aside… this is hilarious! Shout to A Tribe Called Quest and Dave Chappelle for getting eyes back onto Saturday Night Live for real back a while ago. So glad to have caught this ep. Damn O-Jeezuz, your school’s athletes research many of those ’round orange bananas’? And banana peel crust for real?? BWAAAAAHAHAAAAA!

But fair is fair. Read the @ojones1 commentary/response/rebuttal/whatev after the jump!

Okay, okay. I can’t be that dude that can’t take a joke. The sketch was mad funny. I laughed. Plus, I am a John Cena fan. Moreover, I cannot argue that some athletes – football, basketball, and other sports teams’ players – did skate through some classes while I was on campus. Heck, I chose a couple of electives back in the day because I knew athletes took them for easy A’s. That said, I know of decent to brilliant student-athletes who matriculated at The Capstone. Like Crimson Tide Quarterback Greg McElroy. He earned a Marketing undergrad degree, went on the earn a Master’s degree, and was a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship.

Oh, and he has a Championship ring, too. So there’s that. Roll Tide!
