It's ESPN Gameday's first and only trip to USC in 2011 for the game against Stanford and it's not exactly a must-see. But it's a chance to slobber on Andrew Luck. We're a little late getting going this morning and you can thank that to a late night in Chicago. This city on Halloween weekend can break the best of you. Anyway, the signs aren't exactly great outside the Coliseum, but you get a few classics. Andrew Luck Wears Skinny Jeans! JUMP!
New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is supporting friend and St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa in one of the strangest ways we can fathom -- by wearing his jersey. It's kind of creepy if you ask us, but hey, we don't want to criticize the fashion plate that is Bill Belichick. Or do we? Here's the story of how this diabolical merger of Belichick and La Russa happened. Check it!
The Tim Tebow craze just keeps getting bigger. Tebowing has replaced planking as the cool thing to do on Twitter. Of course, we're all over this developing trend because we've got a nose for hard news! Where to Tebow, how to Tebow and why to Tebow .

ESPN has officially gone balls against the chin with Andrew Luck and Tim Tebow because America just can't get enough of these two sports heroes. Maybe you heard about the new craze on Twitter that is sweeping the world. #Tebowing. Look it up. Much easier than planking and less dangerous unless you fools take it to the next level. Anyway, we've had an eye on Twitter today and the NSFW crowd is on fire with Andrew Luck and Skip Bayless/Tebow hate spooge. The tweets. JUMP!
Want to know how to create the perfect storm for pageviews on the Internet? Porn star-NFL-major TV market-porn-porn star with an insane Twitpic gallery. That's it. This beast is a juggernaut. Blogs are paying year-end bonuses with this traffic. Anyway, Shannon Sharpe was asked today what the big issue was with the pic. "Just taking the pix wasn't the problem taking it with her n his jersey and no shirt on.Problem." Keep the hysteria rolling boys. Christmas gonna be nice.
It's been three NFL season since Tony Gonzalez played for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was coming off a huge season in 2008 when he had 96 grabs for 1,058 yards and 10 TDs. It was also time to finally cash in and make some serious money as a free agent. He was living in this K.C. condo and about to sign a $17.75mm guaranteed contract with the Falcons. But Tony still has ties to K.C. that he just can't seem to rid himself of. That condo. It's still on the market. JUMP!
It's finally that weekend of the year when old friends can come together, put aside their differences and have a few beers and play a football game. Michigan State and Nebraska fans will duke it out for the first time since '03 in a series in which Sparty is 0-6 all-time. In other news, Jacksonville, Florida will light up later today when the RVs roll into town for the 90th meeting in the World's Largest Cocktail Party series. Who'll win? Who cares. Let's drink! JUMP!
Now, before you idiots start ranting about "Just leave her alone. Let her have a life, you assholes." Um, some starstruck religious chick (@annenoland) yesterday snapped this shot and uploaded it to Twitter. Did Anne approach Erin to tell her she was a big fan? "no I didn't. Too speechless. Plus she was stressed out and on the phone with her publicist.
#famouspeopleproblems." As for the food, looks like a Pick Two. Salad & mac & cheese. Let's get rolling!
Why do we love Fox Sports Mexico or whatever they're calling it these days? Because that channel is like watching SFW porn and we don't even have to pay extra for it in the BC office AT&T cable plan. Mamacitas like Jimena Sanchez just appear out of thin air. And they LOVE sports. Take Sanchez. She's a huge Oakland Raiders, New York Yankees, Lakers and Babe Ruth fan. Seriously. She has a Ruth poster hanging in her home. Our new Mexican secret crush - JUMP!
We've been keeping an eye on QB Aaron Murray's Twitter page for about eight months now thanks to a back-and-forth he was having with a UGA coed with dreams of becoming a sideline reporter. We're pretty sure he was drilling for oil. Anyway, someone in Tallahassee had their camera out for this shot of Murray in his FSU shirt and holding a Busch Light with a former Georgia Tech footballer. Quite a way for a SEC QB to spend his bye week before the Cocktail Party. JUMP!
Those are James Harrison's legs at 3:45 this morning during an overnight acupuncture electric treatment. Why at that time in the morning? Not sure. Has to be a perfectly good reason or we assume Harrison wouldn't get out of bed to have his leg jolted like you'll see in this video. The Steelers LB reported via Twitter two hours later: Goodnight! Got to get up in 2 hours to workout! And you think NFLers just go clubbin' and nail chicks on Tuesdays. (via @jharrison9292)
In our honest opinion, Little Dooley, the hair isn't quite on target. That curly q on the left side of your head is totally not Tennessee head coach Derek Dooley. We know, because this Google Image Search shows us that Derek prefers the part on left side of his head. Something about helping him make great offensive calls. Says that side of his hair is what makes him a genius. Nice try, though. 'Bama-LSU coverage starts today. Let's get rolling! (via @miklyn12)
America's Couple are expecting their first child. That's right! Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and beauty queen wife Candice Crawford have one in the oven. Romo let the news slip today and, of course, we are all over it. Is this going to be the best-looking most gifted child ever? You bet your sweet American dream-loving ass it is! The fairy tale is real, people! JUMP!
What would you do for free tickets to an NFL game? We know these Buffalo Bills fans would dig through a pile of buffalo crap to get tickets to watch their team. While the premise may not sound too appealing, the video is hilarious, thanks to a gagging radio jock and some dumbass who keeps digging in the pile of crap long after the contest has ended. Get in and check it out you dirty pigs!
2011 has been a very strange season for Browns RB Peyton Hillis. In one of the most shocking moments in video game history, he's named cover boy for Madden '12. Of course that means that he's instantly cursed. But is something even bigger than a curse going on behind closed doors? Bigger than that contract situation? Bigger than the strep throat issue that mysteriously sent him home during Week 3? Could Hillis actually be getting married today? JUMP!
Look here, babydoll, you need a casual encounter at Game 6 in St. Louis? Just happens that Kevin the Intern lives in West Lafayette, Indiana & can be there in 4-5 hours. You email us, say the word and his ass will be southbound in a heartbeat. Bring a hot girlfriend we can hook up with. In other news, the Baltimore Ravens dropped a giant deuce on their 2011 season. That offense looks unstoppable. Four field goals beat you? Pathetic. Congrats to those who had Jags +11.5.
SEC media types are buzzing this afternoon after photos of Nick Saban's Mercedes being ticketed by Birmingham, Alabama Parking Enforcement slapped the coach with a parking violation. Izzy Gould, an Alabama beat writer reports: "After the ticketing officer was informed it was Nick Saban's car, she still completed the ticketing process." Of course she had to ticket Saban. If she doesn't, the nightly news makes a deal out of it and she's promptly fired. JUMP!
The big pageview story of the weekend was the revelation that Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was hanging out with Digital Playground porn star Bibi Jones while on his bye week. Today we find out, via Boston radio, that Rob and six friends of Bibi's were hanging out the other night watching Bibi do work in some porn. Yes, we just said that Rob, six dudes and the porn star were watching one of her porns. She says nothing happened, but wants something to happen. JUMP!
The sports bloggers who cream their pants over stats are going nuts this morning analyzing the Saints 62-7 drubbing of a Colts team with Jeff Spicoli under center. "Oh, look, the Rams haven't scored 62 points this year!" Or what about "Colts, Raiders, Rams, Seahawks, Browns, Titans, Dolphins and Lions combined for 61 points on Sunday. Saints scored 62," via SBNation? Meanwhile, we were just over here combing Twitter for NSFW Painter hate. JUMP!
