Can there be a title game to decide the champion of life?
Tennessee coach Butch Jones appears to have competition. On Thursday, Bleacher Report’s Barrett Sallee tweeted a clip from a Mountain West Conference commercial that ends with a narrator saying, “The Mountain West, champions in life.”
Of course, Jones became an internet piñata after he said in November that the Vols’ senior class “won the biggest championship — that’s the championship of life.”
Give the clip below a spin. You’ll be excused for cracking a smile.

It’s unclear why the Mountain West decided to end its commercial this way or how long the closing line has been around. (Sorry, we’re not up-to-date on our Mountain West commercial history.)
This could be an innocent coincidence. But it’s hilarious all the same.
Keep doing your thing, Mountain West.
