Photo: ESPN’s Football Power Index Gives Georgia The Best Chance At Winning The SEC

It’s sometimes irresponsible to make knee-jerk reactions and pick a team to win its conference after only playing one game. However, ESPN’s Football Power Index looks to take out some of the knee-jerk reactions and replace them with mathematical formulas based on statistics to gauge how good a team actually is. The Index then runs 10,000 simulations and spits out its projections...

Video: Delirious Auburn Fan Discussed Her Love Of The Tigers And Aubie After Getting Her Wisdom Teeth Pulled

Everyone who has gotten their wisdom teeth pulled knows that, after the operation is done and you wake up, you’re a bit groggy and you may say things that don’t make sense. This Auburn fan did just that, and luckily for all of us, her mother caught it all on tape. During her “rant,” the girl discusses her love of the Tigers and their mascot, Aubie. As you can guess, the video...

Video: The Seattle Seahawks Copied One Of Auburn’s Famous Iron Bowl Plays, And The Tigers Noticed

They say that the NFL is a copycat league. Usually though, the teams are copying each other, not those in the college ranks. Thursday night, in the league’s opening contest between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers, we saw a very familiar play. Remember the touchdown pass from Nick Marshall to Sammie Coates off of the read option that allowed Auburn to tie last year...

Photo: North Carolina’s Field Is Painted For Saturday’s “Stripe Out” Game And It Looks Amazing

This may be the most impressive thing you’ll see today. The University of North Carolina decided to declare this weekend’s game against San Diego State a “stripe out,” meaning that fans will wear either a black or a Carolina blue shirt depending on which section they sit in at Kenan Memorial Stadium. While we’ll sure that will look fantastic, it’ll be hard to look more...

Rapper/actor/generally awesome person Snoop Dogg is a noted fan of USC football. He’s often seen wearing a jersey, and it’s not unusual to see him on the sidelines during Trojans games.

Photo: Someone Dyed Oklahoma State’s Fountain Maroon Ahead Of Missouri State Game

Oklahoma State will take on a much less experienced opponent this Saturday – Missouri State – than it did last week, when the Cowboys opened their season with defending national champion Florida State. But not everyone on campus will be having an easier time. Supposedly, a group of Bears fans dyed the school’s Edmon Low Fountain maroon – the school’s color. They apparently...

Penn St. sending recruits 107 letters to pitch 107 reasons

Recruiting is weird. Oftentimes, you’ll see coaching staffs do unorthodox things to either get recruits to commit, or to get recruits to stay committed to their school. Take for instance what the Penn State coaching staff did with at least two recruits: four-star 2016 linebacker Brendan Ferns, and five-star 2016 defensive lineman Shane Simmons. The Nittany Lions are one of many...

Vine: Texas A&M Continues To Have Fun At South Carolina’s Expense, Plays Sandstorm At Practice

Texas A&M is fast, athletic, and brash, and they certainly aren’t afraid to rub other programs the wrong way. Last Thursday, the Aggies travelled to South Carolina, and came out with a huge 52-28 upset win. Apparently, they enjoyed the atmosphere at Williams-Brice Stadium, and have decided to make a famous part of it their own. Texas A&M Football’s Vine account posted...

Under Bo Pelini, Nebraska has lost exactly four games every season dating back to his first year at the helm in 2008. In 2008, 2011, and 2013, Pelini’s Cornhuskers have gone 9-4. This strange consistency has become a running joke among college football fans, and everyone’s favorite Twitter parody account @FauxPelini took the opportunity to make a joke about September 4 being...

USC vs. Stanford – Game Time, TV Schedule, Line, Preview, Predictions

Twitter/Stanford USC and Stanford meet in an early season conference game that could have big implications. Both the Trojans and Cardinal are coming off dominant performances in their first games.

Ex-Louisville Basketball Player Chane Behanan Says Teddy Bridgewater “Influenced Him To Pursue His Dreams”

Former Louisville basketball player Chane Behanan has had a tumultuous time since being dismissed from the program last December. He was set to transfer to Colorado State, but instead took a shot at the NBA draft, and went undrafted. However, as anyone that follows his Twitter or Instagram accounts can tell you, Behanan still has faith that he will carve out a basketball career,...

Eastern Michigan vs. Florida – Game Time, TV Schedule, Line, Preview, Prediction

Flickr/honeya9705 Florida’s first game against Idaho was canceled because of bad weather and won’t be made up. So the Gators first official contest will be against lowly MAC school Eastern Michigan. Things can only go up for the Gators after finishing 4-8 last season. Eastern Michigan squeaked by Morgan State 31-28 last week despite being outgained 479-391 in yardage. The Eagles...

Mark Richt Denies Writing Trash Talk Letter To Clemson Fan Following Win

Deadspin ran a post earlier today about a Clemson fan named Travis who had written a letter to Georgia coach Mark Richt about how his Tigers “would blow those hedges away” at Sanford Stadium. Instead, Georgia blew the Tigers away, and Travis received a letter that appeared to be a response from Richt. Taken at face value, it is amazing: (h/t Clemson Tom) Of course, Richt himself...

Here’s A Photo Of 2 Chainz Posing With A No. 69 South Carolina Jersey

It seems to be some sort of tradition for musicians to be given customized jerseys just before performing at South Carolina’s Colonial Life Arena – Thursday, the school posted a number of photos of different celebrities, like Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and Hunter Hayes, who made their way to the complex. But no picture was as ridiculous as that taken with star rapper 2 Chainz....

Video: Texas A&M’s Renovated Kyle Field Is Incredibly Impressive

It looks like Texas A&M might soon be home to the most intimidating stadium in the SEC. Earlier this year, we ranked LSU’s Tiger Stadium as No. 1, but Kyle Field has undergone renovations this offseason, increasing capacity to 102,500.  The current round of renovations is complete–the project will be fully done in 2015–and it appears that Kyle Field will produce an incredibly...

The university has created t-shirts with the phrase and will begin selling them in its bookstores before this Saturday’s game against Arkansas State. If you’re confused – we’ll get you caught up.

Whoever Runs CBS’ ‘Big Bang Theory’ Twitter Account Thinks Nebraska Is In The NFL

Nebraska football has had a great deal of success in its history, but it’s not really fair to assume that they’ve ever been quite as good as any of the NFL teams out there. Thursday, the ‘Big Bang Theory’ CBS Twitter account botched an advertisement for the network’s NFL coverage, which starts this weekend. Penny, one of the show’s main characters, is shown wearing a...

The Buckeyes’ playing arena has undergone some renovations this offseason, adding 2,500 seats to the south end zone, basically getting rid of the stadium’s horseshoe-like structure.  A little more than 48 hours until the Buckeyes take on Virginia Tech at Ohio Stadium, the tunnel...

Photo: Oklahoma Committed A Terrible Grammatical Error During Saturday’s Broadcast

The Oklahoma Sooners didn’t have much trouble on the field against Louisiana Tech this past Saturday, but someone in their marketing department certainly had a tough day. In the third quarter of the team’s game against the Bulldogs, the school, like many others often do, ran a promotion along the top of the screen. As you’ll see, it probably didn’t leave too many people wanting...
