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!
Annie Wagner took a poster to last night's Packers-Bears game. An NBC cameraman, who should get a raise, zoomed in on her 'My Cheating Ex-Boyfriend Is Watching From Couch Instead,' sign. Say hello to your hero, ladies. Deadspin had a tipster name her and provide a Facebook account. This isn't some sort of ploy to get on national TV. Annie and her girls are over on Facebook high-fiving each other for this Christmas Day destruction. JUMP!
Guess who's 2-1 as an NFL owner and has home-field advantage throughout the playoffs? This guy. So good luck to the 49ers and Saints coming into 'our' turf in the middle of January. Suck it, Brees. Your morning front page of the Green Bay Gazette. What else is going on? Denver is freaking out with a beat Kyle Orton & we're in scenario. Guess who Tebow thanked after getting his ass handed to him in Buffalo? Jesus. Read this - third graf. Let's get rolling!
Hell hath no fury like a drunken woman scorned. Olivia, the Green Bay Packers fan, didn't let her ex-boyfriend come to the game because he is a cheating son of a bitch. The sign read "MY CHEATING EX BOYFRIEND IS WATCHING FROM COUCH INSTEAD" which is an instant classic in relationship fiascos. Never mess with a girl that loves her football. Girls like Olivia will embarrass you in front of the entire nation. Be warned bros. HT @CJZero. 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.
Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys got jacked up by a Philadelphia Eagles defender that made his hand swell up almost as big as his head. Some random third string Quarterback Stephen McGee came in to replace Romo. A Dallas Cowboys player gave one of the best "man I thought you were covering him" faces in the history of the NFL. JUMP!
Apparently the Tennessee Titans gave a memo to their fans that they should all dress ridiculous or dress up like Santa Claus for their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Interesting tactic to try and intimidate the other team. Apparently this redneck Titans fan knitted himself a hat for the game. He must have had some extra time on his hands. JUMP!
Not only does the Carolina Panthers Quarterback yell into the camera about being "swaggerific", he also let the entire world know that today he would not be listening to his coach today. Santa Claus made an appearance in Carolina Panther colors and cheered his team on against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cheerleaders in skimpy outfits, video of Cam, and more after the JUMP!
The Green Bay Packers have a wealth of weapons. They're also the only team in the NFL that has five tight ends. That's right -- five tight ends. While that may sound absurd, it isn't nearly as absurd as the Packers' tight ends' Christmas card. Yup. The five of them went out and bought some Christmas sweaters, brought in a photographer, snapped a photo and send out this card. And yes, it's just as awesome as you think it is. Check it!
We love Lindsey Vonn... or at least we used to. The recent divorcee has been linked to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and although she claims she's not dating him, she's not opposed to the idea. Yeah, that's right. If you smell something fishy, it's probably because you're smelling fish. Vonn laid the groundwork for sports' newest super couple last night. We hate the idea, but it has to be better than Wozzilroy, right? Here's the story. Check it!
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)
What a year it has been for Bernie Kosar. We dug through piles of porn videos to finally bust the case of Lexxi Silver, who just happened to be Bernie's oldest daughter. She released two porn flicks during 2011 and then went silent. Now we get back on the Bernie case with this weird photo from the Tami Longaberger holiday party at her house a couple weeks back. Yes, that Longaberger family. She's loaded & has been with Bernie for a couple years now. JUMP!
For all you rookie bloggers out there, this is how stories about Tebow get blown up into 'stories.' On Wednesday, BC Special Assignment Editor Joe Student interviewed Miss January 2012 Heather Knox. Student, an experienced reporter, was able to get Knox to comment on the Tebow hysteria. She said he was a "hottie." The conversation turned to Timmy's v-card. Bingo! You've got a story. Then our friends at RedLasso send word that Fox 31 Denver is all over this drama. JUMP!
