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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.)
Remain calm, Michigan fan, we've yet to confirm that Denard Robinson has a raging ex-WAG that is correct in that her boyfriend was a low-down, two-timing, dirty dog. We were on the scene this morning as a WAG let loose on Denard's account with claims of hurt, neglect and love gone awry. Just another reason why college athletes shouldn't have a Twitter account or is this an attempt by a rogue to destroy an undefeated season? Make the call. Tweets - JUMP!
Before we go any further, please realize that Ashley Ferrara is an Oklahoma University law student. Like, the real deal. Buys books. Walks amongst the football players. She's not just some random bikini model living in Tampa who says she roots for the Sooners. Ashley has a vested interest. And then realize that she agreed to shoot, exclusive to Busted Coverage, some Scar-Jo mirror pics for this week's Red River Rivalry. Boomer Sooner, indeed! JUMP!
Sent to us this morning regarding yesterday's report on Tommy Rees's sister arrest at Purdue game & possible slutty ways: "u guys got a lot of nerve printing a story about his sister like that..one so many can read.. maybe her parents.. her brother. you have really put the knife in her.. and your so cowardly to boot.. not printing the guys names.. if i was rees and knew someone, like the mafia, i would have u hurt badly...george cunningham" We'll leave the light on, George.
Thanks to a reader, Zach in Portland, we have yet another investigation into the University of Oregon cheerleading unit. "I've looked at hundreds of photos of UO cheerleaders out in the wild and a bunch have belly button piercings. In the photos you show they don't have them. Whats up," Zach wrote in an email. Great question, Zach. Good to see our readers nosing around the NCAA for more than just violations. Our research - JUMP!
Just another Wednesday afternoon during the college football season when word drops about a Notre Dame quarterback's (Tommy Rees) sister being arrested for drunkenness & fighting fans at the Purdue game. Meet Meghan Rees. She's 21, goes to Miami (O.) and is about to become the flavor of the week. BC investigators have started snooping around and we hear that Meghan might be blazing a path from football game to football game. Sex stories, anyone? JUMP!
Busted Coverage has boots on the ground in Madison, Wisconsin for ESPN GameDay stop. It’s Nebraska's first Big Ten game and Wisconsin's high-powered offense seems poised to pound the ball down their throats . The students are fired up with their corn-inspired signs. Cheeseheads are up early and we assuming drinking heavily. They have crazy ass signs to show mom and dad back home in Eau Claire. Here are your best of the best. Enjoy.
