This is hilarious.

Bedlam week is full of vitriol and playful jabs toward the opposing fanbase. Today, finding sign ideas for College Gameday became a lot easier for Oklahoma State fans.

A poster (sh_ag87) on, a Texas A&M forum, pulled a since-deleted story from a Reddit user about Oklahoma head coach, Lincoln Riley. The poster claims Lincoln Riley has a cheesy belly button tattoo. Here’s the full post:

My cousin is from Muleshoe, Texas... hometown of Lincoln Riley. My cousin and Lincoln were, and still are, boys. Well during our senior year of high school we decided to make the trek down to Padre for Spring Break. They swung through Abilene to pick me up, and the group of us found a place to stay at right on the island. We proceeded to party for the entire week, and it was a great time before we all went to Lubbock, Canyon, College Station, etc.

Well... at some point, Lincoln decided that he wanted to get one of those Sublime sun tattoos around his belly button. He was pretty messed up, and most of us were too stupid to talk him out of it... so Lincoln got that tattoo right around his belly button.

This past weekend, my cousin texted Lincoln to ask if he still had the tattoo... and Lincoln said that nobody was supposed to know about that... but the removal procedure is too painful for him to go through so he's kept it all these years... he just doesn't ever take his shirt off in public.

I’m actually typing this from the afterlife because I’m dead. What a story!

All of this is alleged, and I find it hard to believe, but dang is it funny. I actually kind of like Lincoln Riley, but I have a strict rule about belly button tattoos. That rule is don’t have one under any circumstances.

Bedlam week is the best, man. The freaking best.
