Kyle Flood Wants Noted Texas Fan Matthew McConaughey to Come to Rutgers' Showdown with No. 1 Ohio State

McConaughey played a coke-zealot banker in Wolf of Wall Street.

The Wolf of Wall Street is a 2013 Martin Scorsese joint based on a book of the same name about a cocaine-riddled bro/stockbroker's yacht ride to a federal penitentiary. For some reason, people involved with Rutgers' athletic department thought this would make great source material for a Scarlet Knights pregame video against Ohio State.

According to's Sam Hellman, the video gets even more inexplicable: Matthew McConaughey's cameo as Mark, a cocaine addict/stockbroker whose devoutness to the drug stands out in a movie replete with cocaine aficionados in fancy suits, plays a prominent role.

Naturally, head coach Kyle Flood wants McConaughey to spend a Saturday night of his one mortal life under the lights in Piscataway. From Scout:

"I'll put it out there right now, if Matthew wants to come to the game, I'll take care of him," Flood said.

Is this some sort of drug code like we all saw on HBO's The Wire? It can't be said one way or another. It looks like Kyle Flood is going down swinging regardless.

Rutgers hosts No. 1 Ohio State at 8 p.m. on Saturday. The game is sold out.
