Ryan Wolfe and B.J. Bell with Timberlake
A pair of UNLV football players on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown? Yeah, that happened.
If you were awake at about 9:30 a.m., you saw UNLV senior receiver Ryan Wolfe and junior defensive end B.J. Bell getting dance lessons from Justin Timberlake himself.
JT, who was in town last week for his annual charity golf outing, used the Rebels as pupils on a Mayne Event segment on the show, which is orchestrated by ESPN personality and former Rebels backup quarterback Kenny Mayne.
In the skit, Timberlake is essentially putting together a mock instructional video for rookies who need to learn to perform for their veteran teammates on Talent Night at training camps around the NFL.
See? Not all press for the program these days is negative. And if either returns to the NFL, there will be no excuses for lame celebration dances. JT simply won't have it.
