Seems like they just chose a popular figure to add detail to the satire on the nature of big time college football and recruiting.

I'm always excited for the game when I go to the Georgia Dome, but the stadium experience is pretty bland. I think that drove them to a new stadium so soon-they barely missed catering to the increased demand for the big club/lounge areas, among other amenities.
