East Lansing woke up this morning to bright sunny skies and a perfect record thanks to one of the craziest endings to a college football game in the 21st Century. In case you're just waking up and haven't seen how MSU beat Wisconsin, here is your video proof of the dramatics. Earlier in the day, BC had boots on the ground for ESPN GameDay where MSU students wanted to marry Erin Andrews & Russell Wilson was the object of nightlight jokes. JUMP!
Mark down this date in football history - Bill Belichick wore a suit on a sidelines. Major moment in time. The Hooded Wookiee was actually in Louisville for the game. We figure it was to see his son play for Rutgers, but still efforting what the deal was with the jacket and tie. BC is up early and about to hit the road to East Lansing for ESPN GameDay. It's a Michigan State first since 1999. Of course MSU cheerleaders are excited for this huge opportunity.
After the huge success of Oklahoma Sooners superfan (and law student) Ashley Ferrara, we decided it was time to start efforting other models with BCS affiliations who'd go Scar-Jo for you guys. Ashley recommended her friend Tiffany Oertel, an Orange County, California fitness model. One thing led to another and we learned Tiffany had a Boise State shirt in the closet perfectly shredded for a Busted Coverage photoshoot. Once again, Uncle BC coming through. JUMP!
Our original choice for Morning Twitpic was lonely Arizona chick all by herself in the stands near the end of last night's blowout, 48-12, victory over UCLA. Her lonely, arms crossed, demeanor seemed like a good way of getting the morning started. But it was 'Popeye' that stole our hearts. The forearm jumped off the screen at us. Then our eyes moved left to that giant wedding ring. And the black biker bands. $100 says he's 26. That desert will age you. Let's get rolling.
Notre Dame is a bully -- not so much on the football field like they once were, but definitely in the legal arena. The university is forcing a small school in Kansas that was leveled by a tornado and only reopened this year to change their Fighting Irish logo. Apparently, people were confusing the high school with the university... or something. This leads us to believe the Chapman High School football team really sucks, too.
As you might know by know, Busted Coverage spent a few weeks on the road this fall attending some of the biggest college football games with Quinn the AXE mannequin and our cohorts at COED Magazine. We made it to four ESPN GameDay stops and knocked off dozens of bucket list items. There were pictures with Erin Andrews, multiple beers at the best college bars & of course we met a few celebrities including Desmond Howard who answered 5 Questions.
We received correspondence overnight from Oregon students about a sign via @NolanKane that dominated at ASU-Oregon this past Saturday night. Good work, boys. Have anything good for the Song Girls and USC in November? In other news this morning, we learned that there is now a cemetery in Bellevue, Washington dedicated to golfers. Want to be buried in a bunker, covered in sand and cigarette butts? Some guy has a business plan & needs dead people. Let's get rolling!
We're back in the Busted Coverage office this week for Week 7 of the college football season and ESPN GameDay's stop in Eugene for Oregon vs. Arizona State. The Ducks cheerleading team has never looked better with the lights turned out. Corso is hopped up on a 5-Hour and Herbstreit's frosted tips are shining. It's time to get this mess started yet again. Expect lots of smoking weed signs. JUMP!
There's been a slight buzz in the college football world about Ryan Leaf coming out of the woodwork via the release of 596 Switch, a book that will be released tomorrow by the epic NFL bust that chronicles his years at Washington State. Ironically, Leaf is making it Ryan Leaf Weekend in Pullman while Suck For Luck Chairman of the Board, Andrew Luck rolls in with Stanford. Yes, that RV will be going wherever Ryan Leaf peddles this book. Tour details - JUMP!
Kudos to the Oregon Ducks cheerleading unit. Yes, we've said that over and over again. While other cheerleading units like the Song Girls, the crazy Indianapolis Colts' cheerleaders, the Jets Flight Crew and others are embargoing their galleries, UO is headed in the opposite direction. Last year the ladies went on a lake retreat. That became an instant BC greatest hit. For 2011 the bar was raised. How about the Oregon Duck mascot & 140 HP hauling ladies around on a boat? JUMP!
The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators may not have much of a sense of humor, but we do. That's why we find Occupy Herbstreit somewhat hilarious. The movement, if you can call it that, is based around a blog and features a rogue college football fan holding up ironic signs that play off the Occupy Wall Street themes only are about college football. The movement is both small and young, but we've grabbed the best from Occupy Herbstreit. Check it!
Sometimes it just seems like the officials have it out for your team and maybe they do, but we've never seen anything quite this blatant, especially at such a high level. We've got video of a referee pushing the ball forward after it was spotted to, seemingly, try to give Wake Forest a first down in their game against Florida State. Wake Forest would win 35-30. Home cooking? You be the judge.
Well, well, well the day finally arrived when Steve Spurrier and the University of South Carolina had enough of Stephen Garcia. (The guess is that we'll be hearing about an arrest or worse in coming days.) An Oklahoma football reporter's tweet about a failed urine test sent the Internet into a frenzy this afternoon. Um, like we told you guys Garcia was pounding brews a couple weeks ago. Dayglow party, anyone? Send your Stephen Garcia party memories: email@example.com
Busted Coverage has been to three ESPN GameDay live shows this season. And we've been behind the gates for all three. Yes, we've touched Erin Andrews. Shirt on shirt contact. Photos have been taken. There has been chitchat exchanged. In other words, she likes us. We're not idiots like Boomer Sooner fan at this weekend's Red River Shootout (yes, it was straight up murder). Toolbag @ryandavidreaves & EA went at it yesterday over an incident in Dallas. JUMP!
Saturday at Tennessee vs. Georgia was the last official trip Busted Coverage has planned this fall. There might be a last-minute, game-time decision type trip but not likely. So this was the last hurrah to a season of tailgating, debauchery and ladies in sundress/riding boot combos. What did we learn in 2011? BC keeps getting older and SEC girls stay the same age. It's ridiculous. What else? A 'Now Accepting Volunteers' shirt attracts the chicks. JUMP!
Want to know what's great about this job? Walking into an airport hotel bar, finding a seat at said bar, having a Mexican cross dresser on your left (seriously) and the Tigers-Yankees on a TV to the right. A couple of construction workers head to their room and you move right. Minutes later you ask the guy on his iPad thingy how the Tigers went up 2-0. Three hours & a few beers later you've met a friend. Clemson fan, Chris. (Not pictured, that's some random tool.)
