No Guts, No Glory:
The sign pictured to the left caused quite a stir when it popped up on Reddit on Wednesday. And by the end of the day, most believed that there was no way possible that the sign was real. But apparently it is, or was real.
Chris Littman of Sporting News called First Presbyterian Church in Athens to ask point blank if the sign was real. Littman was told that yes, it was real, but it wasn’t anything they came up with. Instead, the sign was part of a promotion for ESPN’s College Gameday show.
The church provided Sporting News with a photo of how the sign now looks.
And the church wasn’t the only location that ESPN used as a promotional tool. The Georgia Theatre also sported a similar sign for a briefly.

It’s here my friends, the most glorious 4 month period of the year. Yes, with last weekend, hunting season has begun. Oh yeah, it’s also football season, and to be specific, college football season.

In case the offseason made you forget just how much Vegas loves to torment bettors, last week featured a nice mix of upsets, blowouts, and surprises. Going Against the Spread is always a daunting proposition, and the FCS certainly didn’t help matters by going off on its big brother.

South Carolina defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney is a game changer. Everyone and anyone that even claims to know anything about college football is aware of that. Heisman hype or not, he is capable of turning a game-changing play at any given time during a game--the man is just that much of a beast.
The good folks in and around Athens, Georgia, are...
Jadeveon Clowney may not have played an amazing first game to open the season, but that doesn’t mean his opponents fear him any less. One church in Athens, Georgia, is asking for a little help from above to help the Georgia Bulldogs stop the Gamecocks star this weekend. A Reddit user named Slings_Green posted a photo of what the church has written on its sign:
In anticipation of the South Carolina vs Georgia game, an Athens church has asked for God's help with stopping monster defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
The lone "controversy" from Thursday night's game against South Carolina, well, outside of all the hand-wringing over Jadeveon Clowney's conditioning.UNC's Kiaro Holts clips Clowney at the tail end of a play earning him a personal foul and the disdain of pretty much everyone who saw it.
As you might imagine this drew a strong rebuke from pretty much everyone...
ATHENS - Mike Bobo talks about stopping Jadeveon Clowney and the South Carolina defense.
Georgia is two days away from facing South Carolina in Athens. With it comes the distinct possibility that Georgia starting quarterback Aaron Murray will at some point in the game get decapitated by South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Or at least be rendered as useless as he was in the Dawgs' humiliating 35-7 loss to the Gamecocks last year.
Murray claimed on the...

It was a Fig Thing this weekend, for sure.
Is everyone okay?

Luckily, yesterday was Labor Day, so many Americans did not have to take a sick day from work. If everyone is ready, let’s take a quick look back at the first weekend in college football.
