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!
Are you an Ohio State fan and a fan of Kate Upton? This might be rough for you to swallow. You probably knew that Kate was born in St. Joseph, Michigan and you might have known her to Twitter cheer for the Wolverines but there has never been a photo of Upton in Michigan gear until now. Here she is this morning in Miami on the way to a bikini shoot, just chilling in this limo. Of course sex with her is still on the table. You don't think we're that big of an Ohio State fan, do you? JUMP!
For those of us who grew up a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals, life was tough. You try moving away after college, walking into a Pennsylvania bar and asking the gruff guy serving drafts if he could switch a TV to the Bengals game. "Bengals fan?," a dirty local interjected in amazement. "I've never met a Bengals fan in real life," he continued. That was like 2002. They won twice that year. So imagine how it feels to have Andy Dalton right now. The guy is married & has a cute dog. JUMP!
First of all, this is a sports-related story on LeAnn Rimes in a bikini because she's playing beach football and in a bikini. Instant blog post. Of course there will be some of you morons who get pissed because you want more Tim Howard goals or stupid tweets from Desmond Howard. But we must address this mess. Let this be a lesson to all of you child country music stars out there who think Jonesing up & going from small B to small D is a good choice. It's not. JUMP!
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!
Of course these morons were getting destroyed on Twitter last night over that rogue apostrophe. Just think of the hours it took to create this masterpiece. Cut them some slack. 81.6% of West Virginians finish high school, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The national average is 84.6%. In other football news, the NY Giants are getting 75% of the betting action against the Falcons. Line is -3 & hasn't moved. Remember how Vegas keeps lights on. Let's get rolling!
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!
Sammy Knight did pretty damn well for himself over an 11-year NFL career. The guy went from being undrafted in 1997 to having a long career that inlcuded 42 INTs and a Pro Bowl selection in 2001. He also made some coin. But now a USC assistant coach, Sam is looking to unload his Texas house in the affluent Woodlands neighborhood. The main highlights: the insane pool and those fountains in the kiddie pool. So damn cool. JUMP!
Of course you remember the consumer-generated 2011 DORITOS Super Bowl commercial where a hungry pug destroys a front door to get some spicy nacho chips. The YouTube video of the spot is nearing the 4-million play mark and is a BC favorite. DORITOS is back for the 2012 Super Bowl and needs you to help pick one of the two fan-made finalist ads that will air during the Super Bowl. Don't worry, DORITOS has something for you, too. For every 100,000 votes, somebody is going to win $10,000, up to a maximum of $100,000. VOTE NOW and enter for a chance to win some cash! JUMP!
Bars in Colorado only have a few more days to debut creative Tebow marketing schemes before the Steelers come to town and destroy Baby Jesus. The Broncos are 9-point home dogs and that line is rising fast. Kudos to the Sporting News Grill in Frisco (beautiful place, by the way). What else this morning? Would the Jets go after Peyton Manning? And finally, guess how NFL favorites faired against the spread in '11? 116-128-10. Let's get rolling!
This one is for our boss in NYC, Coed's BryJax. He has deep ties to the University of Texas, went to school there and never fails to mention how awesome UT is. So he's going to wake up tomorrow morning, cruise Busted and see how a UT fan was the mastermind behind yesterday's Pedobear costume at the Ticket City Bowl featuring Penn State. Nothing turns a meaningless bowl game into an Internet legend like a Pedobear posing with the locals. 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!
We've got another dude getting their favorite player's mug inked permanently onto their own body. This time, Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson is the object of affection. Johnson took a little time to hang with the kid, which was pretty cool of him. We've got those photos and several other unfortunate sports tattoos. This one may fall into that category soon. Johnson is a free agent and may not be playing for the Bills next season. All that and more. Check it!
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!
