The Ohio Bobcats took on the Northern Illinois Huskies where no one decided to show up to support their team in the championship game. Both opening drives ended up in interceptions which is odd because the MAC is not known for its defense. The director of communications of the MAC conference even found me on Twitter and urged me not to call it MACtion. Tyler Tettleton's father and his son may be the only ones watching this game. JUMP!
This is what they're fired up about in Oregon tonight for the first-ever Pac-12 football championship game: the PA announcer. It seems the Pac-12 thought it would be too much of a home-field advantage for the home team to use its PA announcer. Serious as an itchy ballsack. And who did the conference bring in? That smiling d-bag, Paul Olden, who's the voice of the New York Yankees. You want kicked in the nuts, Oregon? Here comes commissioner Larry Scott. BAM! JUMP!
WE KNOW! There's no Big 12 Championship game this year because there aren't two divisions. But let's all just play along and call Saturday's OU-Okie State Bedlam game the championship. The winner goes to Glendale for the Fiesta Bowl. As a gift to you guys, we're bringing back OU law student @AshleyFerrara and her insane mirror shots from October. She's an all-time BC favorite because she's so sweet and makes the Internet so damn fun. JUMP!
BC's very own college football sleuth, @ParadigmShift35, was working his sources last night and wouldn't you know it, these super-intelligent, mostly single Internet dorks tracked down Urban Meyer's new Ohio State email. Oh, and it seems he's actually using it. Are you a jaded Florida fan who needs to have the last word? Are you a Michigan fan who wants to welcome Urb back to the Big Ten? What about you Indiana students who want to talk s%^&? JUMP!
ESPN probably chose the wrong shot opening shot for the West Virginia Mountaineer for you to watch some Thursday night football. Jenn Brown manned the sidelines where as you may have had your TV muted while Craig James announced the game. The University of South Florida also seemed to have a "ball boy" who seemed well into his 60's. Dana Holgerson had at least 8 Red Bulls before the game started. JUMP!
Via Spencer Hall at EDSBS: So we kept emailing the B1G hoaxster--and yes, it was a hoax--to see if we were going to get a response. You'd think someone who'd pulled off a successful prank would simply flee the scene of the crime, their work done and the feat accomplished, but the pros do this a bit differently. Over 2000 responded to the Craigslist seat filler hoax. Obviously the Big Ten is behind this. Great marketing work, fellas. Go read Spencer's Q&A - NOW!
It's the Craig's List ad that is causing SEC fans in the Twitter-verse to choke. Imagine the thought of the Big Ten needing seat fillers to make Saturday's Nebraska-Michigan State game look filled on national TV. Imagine what it would look like for the Big Ten championship to be played in front of thousands of empty seats. If you believe this Craig's List ad, someone is trying to fill seats in Indy. $75 to sit in a seat? That's what we're being told. JUMP!
"Bro, look at this sweet shirt I got for Halloween next year. Totally going as Jerry Sandusky, the football camp counselor." Want one of these shirts floating around on eBay? They're going to cost you some serious coin. Ever paid $100 for a short sleeve t-shirt? Not even during the Ed Hardy craze? If you want the authentic Sandusky Football Camp shirt worn by campers in 2006, you're gonna have to bend over. JUMP!
Yes, that looks like a War Eagle (via @Beezy1000). React accordingly, Auburn fan. Of course the Bama media didn't waste much time asking Nick Saban yesterday about the BCS Championship. "The whole thing should be based on who are the best two teams," Saban said. "Isn't that what it's supposed to be? If it's not on that, then it doesn't matter whether we played before or that we are in the same conference." Suck on that, BCS Media. Let's get rolling!
This year's Egg Bowl (Ole Miss-Mississippi St.) wasn't exactly on the radar of the mainstream media so it makes sense that an f-bomb cleated into the MSU end zone was missed until today. Cow poke fans on Twitter claim that Ole Miss TE Jamal Mosley is responsible for that f-bomb you see in the pound sign that was painted especially for the 2011 Egg Bowl. Guys, this is the greatest non-frat prank in rivalry weekend history. F-bombing an end zone! Clutch! JUMP!
Yesterday was a watershed moment in the history of taking a leak on a football sideline. Nick Novak was caught by CBS cameras...
Remember that one Monday morning when Kim Kardashian announced her divorce from Kris Humphries and everyone attacked her for being a lying bitch? Yeah, well Urban Meyer is getting the Kardashian treatment - mostly from angry Michigan & Florida fans - because he really is the new head coach at Ohio State. You guys really wanted him to show up Luke Fickell during Michigan week? That wasn't happening. Here comes the hate! JUMP!
Our fellow Coed Media Group editor, Neal at Coed Magazine, sent this one last night as we watched Michigan-Ohio State: The Rivalry on HBO OnDemand. It seems that this chick went absolutely bonkers over some great 'Cocks play in the rivalry game against Clemson. It's now time for you guys to do your thing. Earn your Busted Coverage stripes. Name 'Cocks fan. We want Facebook bikini photos, etc. Inbox should be loaded by tomorrow morning: firstname.lastname@example.org
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Even though Florida State students can't read they flocked to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium to watch their Seminoles take on the Florida Gators in "The Swamp". "Ghostface" from the Scream series was spotted by the Gator band section and horrendous looking Florida State girl held up a sign asking Santa to beat the Gators. I thought Seminole girls were supposed to be attractive? JUMP!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Alabama WR Marquis Maze just saw Auburn's punter shank a punt for 18 yards and gave his best "Trollface" ever. The caption should read "U MAD BRO?" Alabama is currently dominating Auburn in the Iron Bowl. Expect to see ALL OF THE SCHAUDENFREUDE. AJ McCarron has already thrown a flea flicker pass. Expect Alabama to unleash the dogs. JUMP!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: During what is referred to as "The Game", Ohio State took on Michigan in Ann Arbor. This season Michigan finally put bodies in their seats for this game now that they are actually not absolutely terrible. All of these fans got to witness a some brawl break out between the Ohio State and Michigan players. Michigan fans also dressed up in some crazy attire. You can't blame them, what the hell else is there to do in Michigan?
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: The Iron Bowl is one of the most intense rivalries in all of College Football. However, ESPN confiscated almost 80% of the Auburn fans signs forcing one guys sign to just read "THIS IS A POSTER". Real creative bro. No Alabama insults were left out including the fact that Alabama can't hit a Field Goal if their lives depended on it. JUMP!
Someone tell us Harvey Updyke is in Auburn, Alabama today - please. We want YouTube videos sent our way, etc. It's supposed to be rivalry weekend in college football but you have a 'down' Auburn team about to get steamrolled by Alabama who realizes they're about to play LSU for the national championship without even having to play in the SEC Championship game. Then there is OSU-Michigan. Someone keep track of Meyer mentions. Let's get rolling.
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShfit35: Dennis Erickson, the head coach of The Arizona State University, is not having a great night against the California Bears this Friday night. Vontaze Burflict is here to take your girl, your touchdowns, your Quarterback down, and probably your soul. Zach Maynard is actually making this a game against the Sun Devils as a former basketball player that can run the ball in the end zone when necessary. JUMP!
