So the logical thinking when the Big Ten went to a bye week and forced the Ohio State0-Michigan game to post-Thanksgiving, was that the annual Mirror Lake Jump would include blizzard conditions and frostbite. Um, it's in the low 50s with torrential downpours in Ohio on this lovely November day. Perfect conditions for tonight's swim, a rite of passage for OSU students who think swimming in a cesspool is a good idea. JUMP!
That white sign reads, "I Hate Orange and White." It's Thanksgiving Week, but it's also War Eagle/Roll Tide Week. Yesterday we showed you the rednecks who stole an Alabama Crimson Tide flag and flagpole. Now comes this display in Pinson, Al. How big is the Iron Bowl? Fans are already parking their RVs for this one. However, fans aren't allowed to occupy those RVs until Wednesday. Let's get rolling!
Via BC Afternoon Editor Monty: Just when you think disgraced Jerry Sandusky can't get any creepier, we pull something out of the depths that's makes him just that. The good news -- or bad news depending on your perspective -- is you can own it. We've found a signed copy of Sandusky's book, Touched -- The Jerry Sandusky Story on eBay and wait til you get a load of the hand-written message inside. $120 for this! Check it!
Why is Eli Manning giving us his "Peyton stole my 1989 Griffey Jr. Upper Deck rookie card," face this morning? Well, his Giants had a chance last night to seize control of the NFC East, yet couldn't beat Vince Young. Bad loss, brah. And on the right we have Erin Andrews after a Baylor Bukkake® post-Bears miraculous victory over Oklahoma. The tale of two faces. One giving thanks. One completely lost in his world of childhood memories. Get your ass rolling! Let's go!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Virginia traveled to Tallahassee to take on the Florida State Seminoles. FSU started 2011 as the #5 team in the nation but have failed to live up to expectations. Virginia is doing surprisingly well and the coach inspired his team by almost losing his life after being shot by a robber. FSU should win this game handily if they aren't looking forward to next week's game against Florida. JUMP!
Via Weekend Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Penn State is visiting Ohio State in the Horseshoe today at 3:30 EST. Penn State is looking to avenge their loss to Nebraska last week and also try and take their minds off the horrendous Sandusky scandal. This game has been poorly dubbed the "Tats versus Tots" game by some sports writers. I will be disappointed if I don't see an Ohio State fan holding a sign that says "Hide yo kids. Hide Yo Wife". JUMP!
It's the first time ESPN GameDay has ever visited the University of Houston campus and you're only getting this visit because of your prolific QB Case Keenum (stats). What you need to know: Keenum is now the FBS all-time total offense leader. He has an amazing 37 TD to 3 INT ratio this season and threw 9 TDs in one game against lowly Rice. In other words, expect lots of Keenum > Luck signs and even that 'shocker' that has made it to the front of the crowd. JUMP!
Wow, what a game last night in Ames, Iowa where ESPN documented Iowa State's first victory - EVER - over a #2 ranked team. You know what we hate this morning? We hate Alabama fan's reaction in this Tuscaloosa bar. You assholes had your chance a couple weeks ago and couldn't score a TD at home against LSU. You also couldn't make a FG. But, you'll eventually get your BCS shot because the rest of college football can't get its shit together. Anyway, let's get rolling.
Sarah Palin has said she would have no problem bringing the rope to a hanging of Jerry Sandusky (even though he's still innocent). Now we have Howard Stern bringing a voice of reason to this case. "They should cut his b**** off, I mean, what are you going to do with a guy like that? This is the real stuff that sickens me and should sicken all Americans." Meanwhile, this morning someone either punched or kicked in a window at Sandusky's house. OCCUPY SANDUSKY!
Via Busted Coverage's Screencapper ParadigmShift35: Of course the crazy Virginia Tech rednecks were out in full force tonight in Blacksburg. Is there anything else to do on a Thursday night in the hills of Va? Not unless sitting at home and watching Pawn Stars DVRs sounds like a blast. Anyway, there were freezing conditions, some dude with his lunch pail and Jenn Brown up to her normal sideline duties. Catch that ACC football fever. JUMP!
Our friend Darren Rovell (he actually follows us so f-off) this afternoon had this to say about an NCAA '12 screencap that crossed his desk: Horribly unfortunate caption in NCAA '12 for Penn State-OSU game. Oh, come one now, it's just a computer pumping out the headlines. Or is it? Sandusky? Is that you, you queer child molester? You conspiring with Spanier and Schultz to disgrace NCAA '12 with this disgusting prose? It just won't end. Those poor kids! (@darrenrovell)
A simple tweet went out last night from Erin Pageviews to the infamous SI swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen. Did EA just break news on her Twitter account about the future of her career? Sure looks that way to us. The world of sideline reporters just got a tad bit more interesting. (Kudos to our friend Mike for holding that umbrella at the Michigan GameDay stop.) JUMP!
Kudos to Holly Davis for having her head on swivel and finding the now infamous Roll Tide Truck parked at the local gas station getting a fill up. You might remember this video where the RTT owner showed off the amusement park on the back of that ride. Best fan truck in all of college sports. Not even a competition. In other news this morning, Jon Stewart went off on Jerry Sandusky last night. The conclusion: Jer is a horrible liar. Let's get rolling!
Everyone's favorite Lingerie Football League color analyst, Sean Salibury, has been keeping his finger on the pulse of all things Jerry Sandusky and is about to blow a gasket. The ex-ESPN horndog is now over at Total College Sports where he's free to speak his mind. The problem is that only 2,200 Twitter followers are getting his message. Anyway, Sean has strong words for what should happen to Pedobear. Karma is a bitch. Let some sort of justice be served...JUMP!
You thought a gigantic pedophile sex scandal in State College would freak people out to the point they'd stop getting laid for a weekend? NO FRIGGIN' WAY! Craigslist is fired up for Penn State vs. Nebraska. Three-ways, random pre-game BJs, guys looking for weekend beef, etc. Fans are looking to relieve some stress and Craigslist State College is your Yellow Pages. Personally, we'd like to offer some advice. If the dude on the other side of the email sends you this photo, RUN! JUMP!
Ashton Kutcher got himself into the news last night thanks to the Joe Paterno firing. This tweet set off a sh$%storm as America went into mob mode on @aplusk: "How do you fire JoPa?
#insult #noclass as a hawkeye fan I find it in poor taste." That was followed by an eruption from the mob and resulted in Kutcher deleting the post. Which then resulted in an "I'm sorry" tweet to smooth over his ass since he's a backer of childrens' rights group. NSFW tweets - JUMP!
Loudmouth radio guy and Pittsburgh media maven Mark Madden was on WEEI in Boston this morning and dropped an enormous rumor bomb concerning the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Madden told the Dennis & Callahan show that two prominent national columnists are investigating whether The Diddler was pimping out Second Mile kids to rich donors. We don't know if those were Second Mile or Penn State donors. Listen to the show - here. 7:00 mark.
And so it went down last night on the State College campus. Penn State has erupted into chaos as students went nuts in the streets. The Penn State Board of Trustees held a meeting late last night and announced they had fired Joe Paterno - via telephone call. Of course Saturday was to be Paterno's final home game after 62 years at Penn State. Won't happen. He's history and of course the morons at Penn State wanted one final goodbye. Let's get rolling today!
The Jerry Sandusky child rape scandal just keeps growing and in one of the more disturbing moves, suddenly his memorabilia is showing up for auction on eBay. There's the autographed 'Touched' book that's already been bid up to $41 since being posted last night. Our attention then turned to a 1986 Fiesta Bowl ring that supposedly once belonged to Sandusky. The seller says he has COA papers. Yes, this world is a disgusting place. JUMP!
