Fallen hero Jim Tressel might have the support of his former players but now the mockery of Sweater Vest has spread to other Ohio campuses, specifically Ohio University. And there's more from the Tressel front. Players hoping to wear JT bracelets for their fallen warrior/father figure have been told that the plastic tributes won't be necessary. NO BRACELETS! Play football, morons. JUMP!
This photo of college guys with bulging pectoral muscles, tats, chains and a Chucky doll has been making its rounds amongst the SEC crowd. Figured since most of you are Midwesterners, East Coasters and maybe a few Mountain Time Zoners it was worth posting for your amusement. That's the Florida Gators' defensive line. Odds are at least one will end up in prison before 25. You should be scared right now - JUMP!
The fine folks in Newbury, Ohio have been tweeting that Casey Anthony has decided the tiny northeast Ohio town is where she'll live - for now. Today, via TMZ & Splash News photographers, we know that Casey is back to repping her Ohio State Buckeyes (has family in OH). There she is shopping, at Lennox Center in Columbus, looking through clothes at Old Navy. We tried to tell you Ohio wasn't dull. JUMP!
Who knew that Trey Burton could whip up a mean doughnut batter? Not this blogging outfit. It seems that the Gators' QB took part (not sure who approved of this) in some cooking show hatched up by a couple of jersey chasers who have a YouTube channel with 54 subscribers. The ladies, Kavita Channe & Jen Soko, have interviewed a number of famous celebrities, but never a 19-year-old QB. Time to ramp up the cleav! JUMP!
For the last three years of our lives there have been a couple legit reasons to look forward to the last weekend in July. This is the official kickoff to the football season. Teams are in camp. Colleges are welcoming players to campus. And the USC Song Girls invade Lake Tahoe for the annual band retreat. Bloggers who are normally making their Top 5 Nickel Defenses In The Big 12 lists, pause for a moment of appreciation. Those 3 letters. Water. JUMP!
Yes, these photos of Shanna McLaughlin in the Central Florida locker room are from 2010. Yes, George O'Leary got an earful for this happening in his locker room. But these pics of Playboy Ms. McLaughlin are like a Fall anthem. Can you hear the birds chirping? The football pads popping? The cheerleaders strapping on the suits? Brent Musberger's "You are looking live..." Welcome to our football '11 official kick off. Gallery! JUMP!
Nothing to see here, people. Just Lane Kiffin and Steve Sarkisian enjoying a moment with the Pac-12 medicinal weed dealer. How refreshing to see the new conference stay true to its roots with Sgt. Pepper being welcomed to media day. Meanwhile, in the SEC they were freaking out over "I Hate Auburn" guy who showed up in Birmingham. And then you had the Big 12 with 6-foot-10 cheerleader freak. JUMP!
Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck has a lot of things going for him -- frontrunner for the Heisman, a bright future in the NFL. However, good personal hygiene is not among them. Luck showed up at Pac 12 media day looking more like Grizzly Adams than the last great Stanford quarterback, John Elway. At least the Amish will have a Heisman contender to cheer for this Fall. Photos! JUMP!
Maybe you heard last week some SEC coaches crying about players needing some walking around money and how many of these guys are broke. Well, as legendary SEC blogger Clay Travis points out this morning, it seems awfully weird that Julio Jones was able to buy at least 10 different suits and wear them for 'Bama's Walk of Champions. Oh, did we mention Clay is hot on the trail of a 'Bama suit store with ties to the football team? More - JUMP!
In case you haven't heard, or live north of Cincinnati, or actually have a job, or don't get ESPNU, it's SEC Media Day! How serious is SEC Media Day? ESPN had a t-shirt printed just for SEC Media Day. It's also a chance for SEC media members that run web sites to actually leave home and listen to commissioner Mike Slive talk about improved academic standards in the SEC. One of those media dorks came to Birmingham sportin' this 'do. Appreciate. JUMP!
The Internets are buzzing this morning over yesterday's July 4th parade antics in Upper Arlington, Ohio where it was laud Jim Tressel's day. However, the real parade gold near Columbus on the 4th was in tony neighborhood Dublin where the 28th annual Doo Dah Parade also featured spoof parade floats such as the Fine Lyin' Tattoos skit, complete with a politically incorrect blind, fake Jim Tressel. More - JUMP!
It was an exhaustive process tracking down the 42 most important college football Twitter accounts of 2011, but that's what interns are for. Kevin The Intern's Associate Intern, Garrett, was tasked with researching and tracking down the most influential, creative and must-reads that'll get us through college football '11. If you are on this list, congrats. It also means Busted Coverage will have at least 6-7 pairs of eyes on you at all times. Make us proud, boys. Full list - JUMP!
If you listen to NFL Draft sites such as NFLDraftScout.com, you'd know that Nebraska WR Brandon Kinnie is ranked as the 41st WR available for the 2012 Draft. Yes, that's too many uses of Draft in one sentence. Deal with it. Anyway, Kinnie could play in the NFL, but we figure he'll now be forever known as the first college football player to pull off the regulation basketball hoop planking. Yes, this is now the 3rd planking post today on BC. Deal with it. JUMP!
Normally we won't get into a race bait story but gotta step into the ring on the story of New Mexico football player DeShon Marman being arrested last week for not pulling up his pants while boarding a U.S. Airways flight from San Francisco to Albuquerque. Video of Marman's semi-confrontation with a U.S. Airways pilot is making its rounds but the big news today is a woman snapping a pick of a old white dude crossdresser who was allowed to board a plane in THIS! JUMP!
Now think about this for a second, some sculpture artist named Franco Castelluccio has been working on a Tim Tebow piece that he hopes will bring $12,000. Don't misunderstand us, art is wonderful. The BC office has a couple of beautiful pieces we've picked up on trips to Santa Fe. We also understand that there is this thing called exploitation. How dare Franc play on the emotions of the hundreds of thousands of Tebow worshipers. Don't do it, people. It's just Timmy breaking a tackle. JUMP!
You might remember yesterday when we helped make Jordan Jefferson famous this week for his answer to "Which Jefferson Is This?" pop quiz on ESPN. Of course he flubbed the answer to a picture of Thomas Jefferson by calling him George - on live national TV. Well, we can now report that Jordan exacted revenge on ESPN HQ by taking this photo and maybe getting in an ass grab on pageviews. You be the judge. Hand on the ass? Full photo - JUMP!
