An Auburn message board figured out all of Alabama’s recruiting tactics

Sorry Crimson Tide fans. This Auburn Tiger is on to EXACTLY what you are doing to ruin their beloved school. They know how you strung Auburn along with those recruits who were secretly committed to Alabama all along. It’s just what you do.

Vanderbilt plans on building a hill for football seating

Vanderbilt is building a hill for more seating for their football stadium this season. The plan is to make it like a berm on a baseball field. This is a pretty weak move for an SEC school in my opinion. They should at least build some bleachers or something instead of just hill side seating. I’m sure James Franklin, the head coach of Vanderbilt, wants his stadium to be as loud...

Someone may want to fix Auburn’s countdown to Clemson clock

Even though we are 92 days away from the kick off between the Clemson Tigers and Auburn Tigers, the clock reads something different. This picture was taken yesterday by an Auburn player when they were 93 days away from kick off. The way the clock is set up now, the game is set for August 30th which is 2 days before the game. Officials at Auburn are aware of the problem and are contacting...

Ohio State fan apologizes for placing a bounty on a Michigan recruit

We’ve been talking a lot about Logan Tuley-Tillman. He’s the Michigan recruit who burned a letter he received from Ohio State. Then a team mate told rival Ohio State fans that he would show them what a real death threat was and that they should bring a gun. Enter Harrison Watson, an Ohio State fan that issued a bounty on whatever player could sideline this recruit. He said he...

The Jacksonville Jaguars are practicing in a food court area

Does this look like a football practice field to you? Probably not. Ever since Tropical Storm Beryl came through the Jacksonville area, the Jaguars were forced to conduct practice in an area that resembles a food court. We can only hope Ron Prince (a Jaguar’s assistant coach) was behind this decision. There may be some tables and chairs in their way and there isn’t any field...

Marlins Pitcher faked identity but gets second chance

You might know him as Leo Nunez, a right-handed pitcher for the Miami Marlins. You might think he was 29 years old and from the Dominican Republic. Well actually, that last part is right. Leo Nunez is 29 and from the Dominican Republic, the pitcher on the other hand is 30 and is really called Juan Carlos Oviedo. In July, the Marlins will be getting a new pitcher, but one with a familiar...

BASEketball is listed as a NCAA secondary violation

Brad Barnes, who runs @TAMUCompliance, pointed out that the “BASEketball” is in the NCAA’s secondary infraction list. The term BASEketball was created by South Park creators Trey Parker...

Craig James may not win the Congressional election

Craig James, the former ESPN broadcaster and SMU football player, does not look like he will win a spot in Congress after all. Craig James left ESPN to pursue his political aspirations. To say not many viewers liked Craig James would be quite an understatement. He was behind the ousting of Mike Leach from Texas Tech University because of an alleged act of locking Adam James (Craig’s...

Iowa quarterback James Vandenberg stands over a dead Black Bear with a bow and arrow

James Vandenberg of the Iowa Hawkeyes is seen posing here with a deceased black bear. You can see James Vandenberg (who’s nickname seriously is “The Mandenberg”) holding a bow and arrow. When Mike Leach killed a beach, he used a gun. It appears that this guy took the old fashioned approach and used archery. This is cooler than throwing any touchdown or any play you could make...

Kevin Sumlin and Will Muschamp probably won’t be the best of friends

He called Georgia head coach Ray Goff “Ray Goof” and hung 50 points on UGA in Athens just because no one had done it before. He later said he just wanted to see what it felt like. A new era of coach...

FSU and Clemson combine forces to make the worst t-shirt ever created

Do I agree that it would be better for them? Absolutely. What has been unbearable has been the constant talk about how FSU “deserves” to be in the Big 12 and the ACC is holding them...
