We highlighted Joker Phillips looking like a boss yesterday, doing back flips like it a'int no thing. The Kentucky coach immediately went up a few notches in our books...never hurts to keep things loose with your team leading up to another mediocre SEC season. Now, Joker goes and pulls a move like this and brings himself back down to earth...and fast. JUMP!
It's the official start of the college football season for Busted Coverage and has been since 2008 when we first started tracking the USC Song Girls weekend in Tahoe. While dorky sports bloggers are busy going to SEC media days or to Chicago to hear another Big Ten coach babble, we know the real start to the season is when another set of Song Girls gets baptized in those Tahoe waters. Once again, the Song Girls do not disappoint. JUMP!
If you haven't noticed, the NCAA has had its way with Penn State. They got slammed with a $60 million dollar fine, loss of scholarships blah blah blah. They got hammered and these penalties could essentially be as damaging as the death penalty would've been. When 9:00 a.m. hit, we literally couldn't keep up with the tweets. Angry, blind PSU supporters were throwing F-bombs left and right, with the NCAA catching the brunt of it. JUMP!
According to Yahoo!, Florida State and Jimbo Fisher has banned his players from using the popular social media service Twitter. An FSU friend of mine sent me in some screenshots of some questionable tweets of some FSU players. I didn't think much of it and posted them up. One of them involved a player, Tyler Hunter, quoting a Lil' Boosie lyric talking about killing cops (this was not referenced). Could this have caused the FSU Twitter ban? JUMP!
We all know that Erin Andrews is out of the ESPN universe. What we have been clamoring for is who will be her College Gameday replacement...and we now have an answer. The beautiful Samantha Steele. We don't want to say we told you so, but we told you so...in 2008! Either way, BC is pumped to have this beauty on the sidelines and will be a nice shake-up from ol' Pageviews. JUMP!
We are in the heat of SEC Media Day and already the Twitter world is exploding. As of lunch time, three SEC head coaches were trending worldwide. Yes, worldwide. Mississippi State Coach Dan Mullen was one of those coaches. This guy has some serious Bulldogs' pride! Can't blame him, but when he is going around saying MSU isn't far off from a BCS title and that Starkville is the best college town in the country, Twitter draws the line.
So those fans at Penn State want to save the Joe Paterno statue, right? Someone plunked down the money to fly a "Take The Statue Down Or We Will," banner over State College this morning. According to the Centre Daily News, "the pilot was scheduled to be out for about three hours starting at about 10:15 a.m." JUMP!
Alabama Crimson Tide fans are always here to let you know how they feel about your team. Nick Saban is in the news for his daughter, Kristen Saban, allegedly beating up Sarah Grimey (her sorority sister). So an Alabama fan writing "Roll Tide Yall Suck" in the sand at a nice beach just puts the icing on the cake. Come on guys, every southern gentlemen and bell knows that it's spelled "y'all". TROLL TIDE! JUMP!
According to LoserswithSocks.com, this is a photo of Aaron Murray's new back tattoo. We've already seen the amazingly awful chest tattoo of AJ McCarron of Alabama and back tattoo of Tyler Bray of Tennessee. This one is up there in horri-awesome rankings. It looks like some phoenix rising from the ashes. The Georgia Dawg quarterback has also been jumping off lake houses in Lake Burton. Mark Richt just can't control this guy. JUMP!
We've already seen Tim Tebow as a Heisman candidate on the Georgia Bulldogs. Now EA Sports is making commercials where Desmond Howard is an Ohio State Buckeye on NCAA Football '13. Howard was a Heisman trophy winner for the Michigan Wolverines and is a great broadcaster on ESPN. Buckeye fans don't seem to like him very much. He'll always have that iconic "Heisman pose" that will be shown over and over. JUMP!
Tyrann Mathieu aka "The Honey Badger" of the LSU Tigers just went on an epic Twitter rant that didn't make too much sense. Spelling, grammar, and punctuation were lacking and it was for his "haters". I think Mathieu is just mad about the recent trolling of an Alabama fan messing with LSU's stadium and campus. Either that or Mathieu is back on the synthetic weed again (allegedly). Does this mean that "The Honey Badger" does care? JUMP!
Storm Klein of the Ohio State Buckeyes was allegedly arrested on domestic violence charges yesterday. Although there has been no official word from Ohio State or head coach Urban Meyer if this is the Storm Klein of the Ohio State Buckeyes, it is pretty safe to assume the person in the arrest report is Klein. Are Meyer's history of arrests following him up to Columbus, Ohio from Gainesville, Florida? JUMP!
Oklahoma WR Kenny Stills showed Sooner fans a shot of himself in a whole new light. A photo surfaced online of Stills in a purple dress, and the forums at 247Sports.com were all over him. The revealing ensemble is only enhanced by the WR's suspect pose. Can’t say this will scare off opponents come Fall. JUMP!
Tebow fanboys are up in arms. Yesterday, EA Sports posted a commercial for their upcoming release NCAA Football '13 showing Tebow in a whole new light. That's right, the ad portrays Tebow as a member of the Georgia Bulldogs. Obviously it's a marketing ploy, and a good one at that. Can't wait to hear all the Gator and Tebow lovers bitch and moan about this for the next month. JUMP!
Today is July 1st, which means that TCU is officially in the Big 12 due to all of the conference realignment going on. Texas A&M and Mizzou are officially out of the Big 12 and are in the SEC now too. The TCU Horn Frog Cheerleaders lead the celebration which kind of resembled a small riot. Anytime college football fans are rioting and there are cheerleaders, it's usually a good time. JUMP!
Been modifying a 1978 RV this summer & want some recognition for working on the ride instead of sitting around drinking beer? There are dedicated fans out there figuring out how to incorporate 47" LCDs, roof beer bongs & Kegerators into the same buses, trucks, RVs & even trash trucks. This is for you, America, and your ingenuity when it comes to constructing a tailgating machine. JUMP!
Jerry Sandusky was just convicted of 45 counts of criminal charges that included pedophilia and child molestation. Basically the stuff this guy was convicted of is the sickest stuff you can imagine. When Jerry Sandusky reached his jail cell, the inmates apparently started signing the lyrics of a Pink Floyd song to him. "Hey teacher, leave them kids alone". JUMP!
LSU fans actually created this shirt that says "I'd rather shower at Penn State then support Alabama. Geaux Tigers". This shirt was first published at College Football Section where he also pointed out that these LSU Tiger fans may want to brush up on their grammar. That "then" should be a "than" LSU fans. Now that the scumbag Jerry Sandusky is behind bars after being charged with 45 counts, we can all sleep a little easier. JUMP!
It's been a long time coming, but Jerry Sandusky is finally in a court of law facing a judge & jury for his alleged actions. The details of the trial are obviously disgusting. Sandusky grinning & mucking it up outside the PA courthouse makes him that much more of a d-bag. Along with the rest of humanity, we figure there is a special death bed for this pig. Twitter went nuts yesterday when it was revealed that Jerry went by the nickname, Tickle Monster. JUMP!
Eric Mack, Ed Christian, and LaDarius Phillips are former or current Auburn football players that were reportedly victims of a shooting that turned fatal early this morning. Fox in Alabama is reporting that there were three deaths as a result of the shooting but we are hearing that it may be only two. The shootings occurred off Longleaf Drive at the University Heights apartment complex. The Auburn police have not confirmed any of the deaths. JUMP!
The UNC Tarheel football program is going through some NCAA sanctions but this takes the cake. Football players were signed up for a class that had no professor which they were signed up for by their academic advisors. The classes were filled with nothing but student athletes. We're all for taking the path of least resistance but as high profile football players, did they really think they would get away with this? It's now become a criminal investigation. JUMP!
The Tuscaloosa News had a little bit of trouble with their headline for their girl's softball story today. The writer, which we are just going to assume is a University of Alabama graduate, spelled 'handcuff' as 'hancuff'. You would think they would have spell check or an editor. Maybe the guy was just so upset that the Gators are gaining ground on the Crimson Tide in a women's athletic event that it was just an emotional mistake. Who knows? HT @OurHonorDefend. JUMP!
The Mississippi State Bulldogs will only play on 60 yards of field for their 2012 spring game because they decided it was more important to build a stage for a band to perform on. MSU decided to give up 40 yards of field space for a country music band named Sugarland to play on. Dan Mullen doesn't have much to work with to display his team's ability for his spring game. Grind for your state MSU! HT @stricklinMSU JUMP!
Manning Way is a street in Oxford, Mississippi that was named after the Ole Miss Rebel quarterback Archie Manning. The speed limit used to be 18 mph in honor of Archie's number. Well now that there is a new Manning and former rebel and current New York Giants quarterback winning Superbowls, the speed limit has been changed to Eli Manning's number 10. I doubt Ole Miss fans will feel too bad about going 8 mph slower than usual. HT CFBSection JUMP!
Saturday was the South Carolina Gamecock spring game where Steve Spurrier lead his team on the field to show his fans what is in store for the fall. Of course the good people of South Carolina had to tailgate this event and with tailgating comes antics like this. A Gamecock fan got a hold of a microphone and a an amplifier and decided to sing the national anthem IN THE VOICE OF A ROOSTER. Listen to the video. It's.... interesting. JUMP!
That is the University of Florida quarterback Jeff Driskel with his smoking hot cheerleader girlfriend @TarinMoses in Auburn, Alabama. They are getting ready for one of the biggest annual rodeos in America that is this weekend. Jeff Driskel is competing for the starting QB job with Jacoby Brissett on Muschamp's squad. They are definitely dressed for the rodeo and look to have a good time. They should fit in just fine! JUMP!
The original design of the Cy-Hawk trophy was so terribly bad that they are changing it after just one year of it being made. They are actually allowing the people to vote on the new design. The Cy-Hawk trophy is given to the winner of the Iowa-Iowa State game every year. Steele Jantz lead the Iowa State Cyclones to a win over the Iowa Hawkeyes last year for the Cy-Hawk trophy. The top 3 designs of the trophy are up after the JUMP!
Either Miami fans dressed up as seats for their spring game or absolutely no one showed up for the event. The Alabama Crimson Tide consistently have 92,000 people show up to their spring game and the Miami Hurricanes have this turnout. Miami fans are pretty much the exact opposite of Bama fans but then again, what the hell is there to do in Alabama? I guess all the Miami fans are on South Beach drinking mojitos. HT @TomahawkNation. JUMP!
The Indiana Hoosier spring game was scheduled for today but the weather wasn't cooperating for the Hoosiers. A severe tornado watch forced the Indiana Hoosiers to move their scrimmage inside to their indoor practice facility. Weather has been a problem for spring games across the country for other programs. The Nebraska Cornhuskers were also forced to move indoors for their spring game. HT @zwilk7 JUMP!
About three months ago a photo started floating around the message boards of a Georgia cheerleader built like a dude. It turns out that Anna Watson is real and is probably stronger than 95% of BC readers. Her story is making its rounds this week, but many of the sites doing their thing forgot to aggregate Anna's best photos. JUMP!
Yes, we'll get off this Jeremy Shelley-Blair McElroy story fairly soon. But how many times do we have to cut through the college football analysis sh*t on ESPN? We broke down the 2012 BCS in a single post yesterday - Shelley. Dude went out, kicked five field goals & won the national championship for Bama. His girlfriend? Greg McElroy's sister who's a frosh at Bama & started dating Shelley while still in high school last year. Kudos to these lovebirds. (@BlairMcElroy)
Yes, it's true that you could just go the Newseum and look at all the front pages from Alabama's 2012 BCS championship, but good luck finding those pages tomorrow when Newseum saves over the old files. Digress. Anyway, big night for Alabama newspapers and 60pt fonts. Who won this year's battle of the fish wraps? We're taking the Tuscaloosa News. Simple, elegant, pointed and a great addition to the office space. In Alabama, these images will live on forever. JUMP!
Bama fan, @alastormspotter, had this to report just after midnight: Line outside of Academy Sports waiting for National Championship gear. We're pretty sure this is Birmingham. Yes, we also see kids in that photo. Look, let's get real about the Tuesday after a BCS victory in Alabama. The only kids showing up to school are the nerds and Auburn fans. Bama kids are busy Black Friday-ing their BCS gear. Have a BCS image we need to see? email@example.com
Of course Seahawks fan on the field and that close to Nick Saban is one of the great mysteries in life. If anyone has intel on who, how and why Seahawks fan was in the Gatorade scrum, we'd like to hear. firstname.lastname@example.org ...What more can be said about the BCS? Of course it would be great to see Bama's D against Oklahoma St. or Oregon. Playoff system is the only logical remedy to this disaster of a game. LSU gets across the 50 once? Inexcusable. Let's get rolling!
This is a face of pure horror watching your beloved honey badger get torched by an Alabama wide receiver for 27 yards. The Alabama Crimson Tide took on the LSU Tigers in the Allstate BCS National Championship where the cajun fans dressed like idiots. What the hell were Erin Andrews and Les Miles staring at during the pre-game interview? Technically, Nick Saban's head is below sea-level in New Orleans at 5'6. JUMP!
A fat pony tail wearing Davy Crockett with a fake mustache came to the Cotton Bowl between the Arkansas Razorbacks and the Kansas State Wildcats. The rednecks of Arkansas flocked to the Cotton Bowl stadium in their most ridiculous outfits imaginable. Jerry Jones gave his best "O Face" and Erin Brockovich showed up for some environmental activist bullshit during game cameos. Check all this out after the JUMP!
Pretty sure they're going to award the BCS crystal ball to the 2012 national champions, but we get the idea. This comes to us via the Tuscaloosa mall. Similar signs are popping up around the city. Bama is now a -1.5 favorite at the Las Vegas Hilton where the line opened with LSU -1. What else this morning? TV news is reporting that bars offering the 'Honey Badger' drink are doing brisk business. Honey whiskey and lemonade is all you need. Let's get rolling!
We've lightened up this shot of what we believe to be LSU football players in a Bourbon Street live sex shop last night so you can judge for yourself how the players are spending their time in New Orleans. Look, they're 18 so we could care less what the hell they're up to in that city. So they want to see some titty and chicks swinging from poles. Meanwhile the Internet is going nuts over the thought of black dudes wanting to see some 'tang. Jesus Christ! JUMP!
Nice sign, smartass. Let's see you shove that in the face of a drunken West Virginia fan without getting your South Carolina ass curb stomped. Oh, and it's 49-20 at half and counting. Look, it never fails that some bro thinks it's a good idea to talk shit in the stands and then when push comes to shove, we end up surfing YouTube in the morning and his face is a bloody mess. Not that we encourage violence, but this guy is obviously encouraging an ass kicking. Stay tuned. (via @DeadlySinNo8)
This guy thinks wearing the "Clemson Grandparent" shirt and writing ESPN on his arm makes him the life of the party. It doesn't but nice neck beard man. The Clemson Tigers and the West Virginia Mountaineers faced off in Miami for the Discover Orange Bowl. Basically, the entire crowd was filled with rednecks in stupid outfits. On the field, a WVU running back was tackled and did a flip to keep his footing. Video after the JUMP!
While the douchebags at Around the Horn are debating whether Mark Cuban is right about the NBA being jerkoffs for not scheduling them into Washington D.C. to visit the Prez, we were investigating reports of Mark in Miami for New Year's. What we know is that Cuban was hammered (or just looked that way) at Wet Bar Miami, according to those in attendance, including a Notre Dame nose tackle. Frosted Flakes shirt on New Year's for a 53-year-old-man? Ok. JUMP!
I'm not sure if these Virginia Tech Hokies fans wanted to go to the Sugar Bowl or a Gwar concert but they made it to the Sugar Bowl against the Michigan Wolverines. Erin Andrews showed up to the game and so did these three overweight girls dressed in I don't know what outfits. We all wonder if power VT blogger TheKeyPlay will survive his trip to the Sugar Bowl. If you spot him in the crowd, I will buy you a beer. JUMP!
Going through our normal post-Rose Bowl procedures, we came across news that doesn't come as a big shock to us. Oregon cheerleader Stephanie Essin, journalism major, wants to become the next great TV reporter/personality, which we assume means the next Erin Andrews. She's 20, has ambition, is modeling, has a great Twitter personality and just might be the next great sideline reporter to come out of Eugene. Her resume - JUMP!
So our friends at TigerDroppings.com sent word last night that conspiracy theorists are trying to figure out if this Rose Bowl gambling ticket is legitimate. Would someone actually place $44k on a halftime bet? Sure. But is the ticket even legit? Would an Ohio State fan who works at a Las Vegas casino be financially able to place such a huge bet? Is this the handy work of a Photoshop artist looking to make an Internet splash? More details on this mystery - JUMP!
This should come as no surprise that there are a bunch of hippies in California but holy shit check out the Stanford drum line. What the hell is this kid wearing? Blue hair afro wig and giant red glasses? Palo Alto must be a weird place. The Oklahoma State Cowboys took on the Stanford Cardinals in the Fiesta bowl where Andrew Luck would be playing his last game. Check out the sweet mullet on number 73 for OSU. Get that cut ASAP. JUMP!
I don't know what Erin Andrews was thinking when she chose this outfit to the Rose Bowl between the Wisconsin Badgers and the Oregon Ducks. It looks like she is Jenny from Forrest Gump in the 70's. The crowd was filled with crazily dressed fans like any other Rose Bowl but this year they had a stealth fighter do a flyover. That probably only cost the government a billion dollars. JUMP!
It's Michigan State vs. Georgia in the Outback Bowl today and that means the educated beasts from UGA are showing a national ABC audience their spelling prowess. At first we were like maybe this is some sort of alternate spelling for Dawgs that the locals use. Maybe this was a Photoshop job. Maybe we've just been drinking too much and reading that wrong. Then we did a search on Twitter. This, in fact, is the real deal. Good work, SEC.
It's probably not a good idea to stand too close to the sideline when you weight 100 lbs and a breeze could knock you over. Well, at the Gator Bowl between the Florida Gators and the Ohio State Buckeyes, an equipment manager got drilled by a Gator defender and hit her head on a metal object. Thankfully, she turned out to be okay. Cheerleaders, drugged up kids, and more after the JUMP!
The Virginia Cavaliers must have hired a uniform designer that was on acid for the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against the Auburn Tigers. Bright orange on bright orange? Even Maryland thinks your uniforms are poorly chosen. Even Santa Claus thinks you messed up big time Virginia. You have to hand it to Virginia fans because they brought some hilarious signs like "Eat Mor Tigurz" and "Eat Mor War Eagle". Check em out after the JUMP!
The Northwestern Wildcats have lost 8 bowl games in a row and hope to change that in this years Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas against the Texas A&M Aggies. Of course in order to combat that losing streak, Northwestern made a doll of a monkey in which they can "Get the monkey off of their back". Real cute guys. Maybe you should focus on blocking and tackling. You may also wan to keep your coach from complaining like a bitch on the sideline. JUMP!
Herky The Hawk should spend less time at children's playgrounds and more time at the Iowa Hawkeyes practice so they actually win the Insight Bowl against the Oklahoma Sooners. This mascot looks like it is trapped in cement and forced to run around for oxygen. Oklahoma Sooner Kenny Stills has his picture as an 'impact player' who looks like a Grade A douchebag with a fauxhawk. When your hair taller than a Chick-Fil-A banner, it's probably time to cut it. JUMP!
Dan Mullen of the Mississippi State Bulldogs is one of the most hated man in sports. His Bulldogs looks like they all covered their hands in vaseline so none of them could hold on to the ball but what is he doing with that gigantic Star Wars like glove? Is he hiding a robotic hand under there? Let us know. The Demon Deacons of Wake Forrest would like to take the Music City Bowl by force if only Darth Mullen could stop them. JUMP!
The New Era Pinstripe Bowl is another example of a dumb ass sponsorship bowl name but the Rutgers Scarlet Knights and the Iowa State Cyclones battled each other at Yankee Stadium. I'm surprised the whole cast of f'ing Jersey Shore douchebags and The Sopranos didn't show up to support their state since it was so close. The Iowa State Cyclone also looked like it would appear on the next episode of "To Catch A Predator". JUMP!
A referee wasn't too happy with this Tulsa Hurricane in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl against the BYU Cougars and ended up getting in his face. You need to learn to respect your officials and not "give them the business". Ironically, the bowl game was sponsored by Taxslayer.com in which I don't know how much money was spent on helicopters, parachuters, and flyover. Also, this kid in the stands was psyched beyond belief that his team came to play. JUMP!
You know why your team isn't playing in the BCS? Two things: they're not very good and/or your school's fan base sucks balls. That's just facts, homeboys. You don't think Michigan should be playing in the Sugar Bowl? Michigan State got hosed? Kansas State was robbed? Folks, Michigan brings better TV ratings and more ticket sales to N.O. And KSU, face it, you're not traveling. There is also the tattoo factor. The more tats your team has on the Internet, the more BCS games you'll play in over a 20-year-period, according to unscientific BC research. JUMP!
As BC continues to grow, so does our boots on the ground across this country. Take last night. Supporter @JHay97 happened to be in place when a Clemson team bus (same as one seen here) pulled up to the Beach Place (Fort Lauderdale) Hooters. "Pretty sure it was their defensive line eating at Hooters," John reports. Easily the best DD to have during New Years - a team bus. Are you at a bowl game & have a photo or story for us: email@example.com
Why are we just seeing this at 8 a.m. on Friday? Because Matt The Screencapper didn't cap it in his Champs Bowl report last night. He has received an official warning that if such 69ing isn't in posts from today's games, his ass will be looking for another screencapping job. Seriously, we have to find this via some loser named @g_schrage52. Anyway, HUGE day of college football. Four games with the first kickoff at Noon. Gonna be a shitton of drunks. Let's get rolling!
The Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and the Baylor Bears took on the Washington Huskies in the Valero Alamo Bowl The crowd in this game was the tamest crowd ever seen. I guess that is what happens when you put sedatives in the water supply. At least Washington has hot Cheerleaders or I would have fallen asleep watching RGII dissect the defense. RGII's family was in the stands today in which zero shits were given by their facial emotions. They already know he is going in the first round. JUMP!
This Florida State Seminole fan did not have a real good time at the Champs Sports Bowl against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The only explanation for why this mediocre team is pounding the Seminoles is divine intervention since Notre Dame is a well known Catholic school. Touchdown Jesus may have made sure Michael Floyd was actually sober for this game. Not even ESPN sideline reporter Holly Rowe who had at least 5 lbs of makeup on could help the Noles. JUMP!
This hefty Texas Longhorn fan showed up nice and drunk to root against the California Bears in the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl. BC would like to salute all of you crazy ass sombrero wearing drunken fans. You make screencapping fun. Also, a couple douchebag Michigan Wolverine fans and Southern California Trojan fans showed up on broadcast. If you can't cheer for a team, get the hell out of the stadium. JUMP!
The Military Bowl between the Toledo Rockets and the Air Force Falcons was filled with insane amounts of scoring and tons of shameless corporate sponsorship. I guess someone had to pay for the billion dollar Stealth Fighter flyover which was totally bad ass. A MAC conference team was in this game so you know what that means. No defense and a million points scored. If you hate MACtion, then you obviously hate America and the Military Bowl. JUMP!
Major Twitter news for the tabloids & us sleazy bloggers who have made fortunes on the Tiger Woods divorce. Rachel Uchitel, usually referenced as the hot Tiger Woods' mistress, announced last night that she is five months pregnant thanks to the handy work of her new husband & former Penn State fullback Matty Hahn. Dude hit the wife lottery (rich & she has her private detective certification) & now he'll likely get a baby reality show! JUMP!
Oregon stud RB LaMichael James & the Ducks yesterday got the VIP experience at Disneyland where one of the Rose Bowl gifts was the chance to ride Space Mountain. And then LaMichael James made a roller coaster face. The Internet went nuts. There is also news of Oregon football players getting stuck on a hotel elevator. But all focus is on James & the face. His teammate Kenjon Barner uploaded this gem & it is now part of this list of great roller coaster faces. JUMP!
We live in a three dimensional world and sometimes it can be tough to tell which one to hold your sign into. Rule of thumb, hold it so the camera reads it so it isn't backwards Louisville Carinal fans. The NC State Wolfpack, who is coached by Tom O'Brien, pretty much has nothing to give after giving up Russell Wilson to Wisconsin. Also, the weird Louisville bird kid made it on ESPN. Congratulations you weird little bird bastard. JUMP!
The Little Caesars bowl kicked off tonight and 3 bros decided to show up and wear the least manly of outfits. The Western Michigan Broncos and the Purdue Boilermakers faced off against each other. Also, the Broncos threw one of the sweetest flea flickers for a Touchdown. Robert Marve, the transfer from the Miami Hurricanes, actually came into the game. He must have had some time off from getting drunk, taking illegal benefits, and shagging co-eds. JUMP!
ESPN sideline reporter Allison Williams was not discouraged even though only a handful of fans showed up to the Independence Bowl between the Mizzou Tigers and the UNC Tarheels. We did't need Darren Rovell to tell us how empty this stadium it was. I don't know how you can blame the fans though. Who wants to live in Shreveport? Sorry @FOTProgram. Spotted in the crowd: Is this kid's dad letting him smoke a blount or is it just a straw? JUMP!
Word is trickling out of Shreveport, Louisiana where bowl week officially kicks off in two hours and either Missouri or North Carolina will walk away with this broken trophy. Media types on the ground say that the Missouri mascot, Truman, has broken the trophy. @HarryPlumer is a Mizzou beat writer: Asked Truman if he broke the trophy. He nodded. Asked him what happened. Threw his paws in the air, then covered his eyes to mimic sobbing. Winner takes all! JUMP!
It was the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl which at first was a lackluster game until something awesome happen. A Wide Receiver and a Cornerback starting going at it and before you could realize what was happening the entire end zone was filled with players in each other faces. Punches were thrown by the Southern Mississippi Eagles and the Nevada Wolfpack. Merry Christmas y'all. Video after the JUMP!
So Aloha Stadium was pretty much empty for this game against the Nevada Wolfpack and the Sourthern Mississippi Eagles. That didn't stop the crowd from having some signs that made absolutely no sense, cheerleaders, and announcers in God awful Hawaiian shirts. If anyone can figure out what the hell this sign says, please let me know. JUMP!
Remember that post of the "Number 1 LSU" Billboard from yesterday? Well, it turns out that it wasn't photoshopped after all and it is totally legit. This means that all those predictions we had of Afghanistani ragers filled with booze and broads are probably true. The 926th Engineering Company was behind this shenanigan in which Busted Coverage would like to salute you. Let's show the Taliban how America does football. HT CFBSection.
Is this LSU billboard in Afghanistan that's making the rounds legit? Probably not, but let's just pretend it is for a minute. Just imagine if for one second these crazy bastards could chill out and watch college football. The pageantry. The excitement. The cheerleaders. The sundresses. Imagine an Afghan being hoisted up for his first keg stand. His first sorority chick riding him after an all-night rager. Can't Nike make a college football game happen in Kabul? Too much to ask? (via @LSUherbvin)
ESPN will not let you forget that this Quarterback is the tallest QB in College Football but the real question is what drug is he on? Is it Xanax, Adderall, Marijuana, or just plain alcohol? Also, Chris Peterson of Boise State University does not look happy from the performance of his team. Somebody get him 2 mgs of Xanax stat! We are still not sure if Vontaze Burflict will murder a player on the field tonight. This is the Maaco Las Vegas Bowl, welcome to Thunder Dome bitch! JUMP!
