"SC Featured" tells the story of former Boston College captain Pete Frates, who inspired the Ice Bucket Challenge phenomenon that has raised awareness -- and millions -- for ALS.

Pinkel had fun with ALS challenge but takes the cause seriously. Washington coaching colleague Ray Dorr suffered from ALS, died in 2001— Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) August 18, 2014
What's Your Tiger Name?
I think some combination of the heat or the shock of being doused in ice water affected Gary's memory briefly - either that or Gark is so focused on football he never bothers to remember our national championship winning mascot, Truman the Tiger.
Mizzou lineman Alec Abeln enjoyed it:

Which leads me to the obvious question, what would your Tiger's name be?
