University of Alabama student Jack Blankenship didn’t start holding up an oversize resume or “Hire Me!” sign at Crimson Tide basketball games in 2012. But he might as well have.

Blankenship appeared as a guest of Fallon in 2012 and on other talk shows after the cutout of his face drew the attention of photographers at Alabama basketball games and eventually worked its way into sports blogs.
