Freshmen Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel may turn out to be a superb college player. Athletically, he’s already been compared to Tim Tebow (not by us, but others desperately seeking your mouse click), and Rivals rated him the #1 QB in in the 2011 class. And while Driskel saw some action for the Gators in 2011, [...]
Although National Signing Day is on the backburner with bowl mania taking center stage, the recruitin’ world got a bit of December intrigue when 5-star Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon decommitted from Auburn and announced he committed to Alabama over the weekend. This courtesy of Al.com. “Over the last few weeks, I’ve really put a [...]
Here’s the scenario: There’s a strength and conditioning coach situated on the sidelines. He’s wearing sunglasses (they’re playing in a dome) and bleeding from his head. It doesn’t bother him whatsoever, and he’d prefer if you’d stop staring at it, thank you. Seriously, stop staring. Oh, and his name is Rusty Whitt. That’s not just [...]
Louisiana-Lafayette wide receiver Darryl Surgent made his case for catch of the year of the year on Saturday when he ripped off a sick one-handed grab in the 4th quarter. His squad went on to take down San Diego State in the final seconds with a lengthy field goal as time expired, and the bowl season [...]
The Famous Idaho Potato Bowl has a mascot. This mascot will likely see you later on tonight in your nightmares. The smile is entirely too bright, and the eyes are entirely too wide. The shirt looks like it’s been through the dryer one too many times, and although we appreciate the Christmas spirit, the clashing [...]
THE 80'S CALLED
Utah State running back Kerwynn Williams has absolutely wonderful hair. This isn’t anything new, but it’s good to see that ESPN is showcasing his look during the magnificent Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. For those of you that haven’t seen Kerwynn’s hair before, this isn’t photoshopped. In fact, I don’t have the finest shoppin’ skills to [...]
Wyoming kicker Daniel Sullivan missed a field goal about as badly as you could ever miss a field goal. He then followed that moment with a piece of kicker wizardry. Extra points are not meant to entertain us quite like us, although Mr. Sullivan’s shaky leg is worth the price of admission. Kick is right [...]
Sam Houston State took down Montana 31-28 last night to move into the FCS Championship. At one point they led 21-0, but that quickly became A LOT closer as the game progressed. Sam Houston did indeed hold on, and will now play the winner of the Georgia Southern/North Dakota State game. If it was up [...]
The site formerly known as Bodog is now Bovada, although nothing on the online sportsbook front is expected to change. And while they’ve moved URLs this week, Bovada (still getting used to writing that) is here for all your holiday bowl prop bet needs. Each year lines are set, not just on the games themselves, [...]
The On The Line podcast got a very special guest this week as Caesars senior race and sports analyst Todd Fuhrman stopped by to give us insight on the world of handicapping. On this particular podcast (and there will be others with Todd because he is awesome), we touched on some general handicapping thoughts, some of [...]
The SEC has become a hotbed for national championships and rap video fan attempts. Thus far this year, we’ve seen Florida try their luck at this, and most recently we witnessed Georgia create a video for the SEC Championship Game. Neither of these were masterpieces (we’re being nice today), although they were completed products nonetheless. [...]
Former Tulsa head coach turned Pitt head coach turned Arizona State coach Todd Graham had a very strange day. He accepted the job at Arizona State after reportedly sending a text message to his team telling them that he was gone. Ouch. The backlash from his former players has been, well, strong and others have voiced [...]
University of Michigan officials have confirmed that the Wolverines will be wearing the uniforms to the left for their Sugar Bowl matchup with Virginia Tech on Jan. 3.
SHAKE YOUR GROOVE THING
Chad Burns is an equipment manager at Miami (OH). He also apparently has moves that stretch well beyond testing out the ol’ JUGS machine. Chad likes to dance, and the Miami film crew has captured a whole bunch of his efforts and put together a compilation of some of his finer moments. It’s actually quite wonderful, [...]
This week’s Aaron Murray fashion update is brought to you by Charlie’s Chill Clothing Company. “We Sell Chill Shirts to Chill Bros” We’ve now seen Aaron Murray wearing a satchel (it’s lovely BTW), sporting an FSU t-shirt with cold beer accessory, and even saw him throw on a holiday-centric Christmas sweater that’s 11 sizes too [...]
There once was a young man who had it made. He was a 3-sport star in high school and was finishing up his senior year at Delany High. He had a girl, too, and her name was Lisa. They hit it off at an orchestrated “casino night” at the high school. She was a cheerleader, [...]
A MAN OF HIS WORD
Aggies head coach Gary Anderson kept the promise he made to his players that he would get a tattoo of Utah State's school logo if the team earned a bowl berth.
Throughout the year, the term “Catch of the Year” has been thrown around quite often for a handful of absurd grabs. It would appear, however, that this competition is indeed over. Although many of you likely didn’t catch Montana State’s game against Sam Houston State in the FCS playoffs, if you did, you were treated [...]
If you visit this site at all or follow along on Twitter, you know how much we appreciate a good GIF. There’s nothing quite like a ridiculous animation balled into a few seconds that replays over and over again. With the right moment, these endless loops of pure enjoyment can provide hours of entertainment. With [...]
CEASE AND DESIST
The compliance office at LSU posted a message Thursday that unauthorized use of the moniker and images related to Honey Badger, the nickname for cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, will not be tolerated.
Charlie Weis, after a year at Florida, is returning to being the ol’ head coach. This time at Kansas (the university not the Chiefs. We hope he knows these important details.) The official Kansas Athletics’ twitter feed confirmed the news and also added that there would be a press conference on Friday. We’re not quite [...]
It’s truly amazing how lifelike these Bo Pelini and Steve Spurrier statues are. I mean, how talented must one be to get this kind of detail and emotion captured in the scene of above? The coloring, facial expressions and the entire scene feels like it could almost come to life right in front of us! [...]
The oddsmakers (and pretty much everyone else) have spoken when it comes to the 2011 Heisman, and it’s clear Robert Griffin III is the man to beat. Bodog finally opened up betting on the event on Wednesday and Griffin’s odds opened at a chalky 1/5. For those unfamiliar with betting, this means you’d have to [...]
Aaron Murray is the best quarterback in the SEC. He’s also not one to shy away from the camera. Murray, who was photographed wearing a men’s satchel, was photographed months later wearing a Florida State t-shirt with a shirtless dude while holding a tasty beverage. His latest moment, however, might be his finest. And it’s [...]
MY NAME IS MY NAME!
Now that Urban Meyer is the head man in Columbus, the mother of Spurrier Urban Wiley thinks her boy needs a new middle name.
