So I was riding to LaGuardia yesterday and had a great conversation with a driver who was telling me about his anticipation for the college football season. How he'd been researching the gambling lines. How he usually throws $10 on a game. How he has eyes on tonight's UNLV vs. Wisconsin game. Rebels getting 35. The ride ends, we share pleasantries. I throw him a $20 & tell him to put it on the Rebels. Tonight, 8 EST.
There hasn't been much to cheer for lately if you're a Cleveland Browns fan. Except for running back Peyton Hillis, that is. The bruising rusher came out of nowhere last season to give Browns fans a ray of hope. Of course, they latched onto Hillis and made him into a local deity, much like Chuck Norris is to the rest of the world. Now Hillis is doing his best Walker, Texas Ranger impression to market his personal website and we've got the hilarious video for you. Bang it!
It didn't take long for two-time Amazing Race contestant & Cam Newton BCS pants model Jaime Edmondson to appear on Alabama sports talk radio to give the locals some background on the pants shoot. The guys at Eyes On Auburn stumbled over a few sentences, never really grasped the idea that these are the BCS game pants and in the end got the scoop on Jaime's shoot. The broadcast went out statewide but, as of yet, we've received no death threats from Auburn or Alabama fan. It's a feel good story - these pants. LISTEN (fast forward to final five minutes.) PHOTOS!
We know New England Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco likes to call attention to himself in public. Well, it appears he likes to call attention to fish in the privacy of the home he shares with fiancé Evelyn Lozada. Ochocinco has a custom-made fish tank over his bed and as a wall for his multiple televisions. Here are the pics, along with Lozada in a sports bra. Check it!
We're now closing in on the 24-hour mark to the start of the football season. Kegerators are installed. Tailgating RVs have had the oil changed. 30-packs of horribly cheap beer are purchased - as backup - if something goes wrong with the Kegerator. LSU fan is ready. Here is his pad, with nary a spec of dust or feminine tastes. This is a room where you live and die with your team after every play. Let's pray LSU fan doesn't destroy his beautiful cave after Saturday in Dallas.
You guys have no idea how much work went into making this Jaime Edmondson in Cam Newton's BCS Pants possible. This process started way back in May when we (I) dropped $1,525 for the pants. The emailers soon followed with hate mail and "Why would you possibly spend that amount of money for Scam Newton's pants?" The answer is simple: marketing. The idea was that the pants would take on a life of their own. Thanks to Jaime that happens tonight.
Last week, we cordially invited you to RSVP for Jaime Edmondson in Cam Newton's Pants Party. Well, tonight tonight tonight - oh oooooooooh - it's going down at Hudson Station on 35th Street and 9th Avenue from 6-9pm. Don't live in the area? Didn't pony up the cash for a trip to NYC? No worries. You can watch our interview with her via live streaming video STARTING AT 7:30PM ET after the jump.
Want to know what what pisses off junior high football coaches? Missed assignments that lead to his running back being destroyed. It's that simple. So imagine our glee when this YouTube video was uploaded today. Say hello to Mike Singletary Jr. Not the real one. We're not even sure there is one. But this is Singletary-esque in its level of pain and destruction. Prepare to hear the crowd gasp at this collision. JUMP!
The college football season kicks off Thursday night with scrub teams battling BCS conference doormats. In other words it's going to be a boring night of college football. The real deal happens Saturday in Dallas when LSU meets Oregon. Of course that means that the Ducks' cheerleaders will also be making their 2011-12 debut. Last night the ladies were busy shooting a poster & being covered in a very, very dark bronzer. JUMP!
It's the day Auburn fan and straight male guy has been waiting for all summer. Yes, we've been promoting the hell out of Playmate Jaime Edmondson wearing those Cam Newton BCS pants that BC purchased earlier this year. HERE is the very first photo from our Jaime shoot.Hope you enjoy and will join us tonight at Hudson Station in NYC (official Auburn bar) where we'll reveal the rest of the photos. $15 open bar.
It's kinda sad when YouTube uploaders don't provide viewers with more information about the subject of their videos. For example, take this video of a high school football game. Here is the headline: "Laker football crazy football hit ben adams." That's it. So is the running back named Ben Adams? No. We're calling him Peyton Hillis Jr. You are about to see a defensive back get jacked into Week 8 via Jr.'s shoulder shot. JUMP!
Jim Tressel is breaking out of his cocoon thanks to the beginning of the 2011 college football season and the fact that Donna Shalala was in bed with a Miami-based scumbag. A few tattoos and lying to the NCAA doesn't look as bad when there are plenty of scumbags stealing The Vest's thunder. Jim went on Cleveland's ESPN affiliate Friday to talk about his love of Terrelle Pryor and what Jim will do on Saturdays in Sept. Brought a tear to our eye. JUMP!
At this point we've been teasing this for about three months and it's finally happening. Remember those Cam Newton BCS game pants? Playboy Playmate Jaime Edmondson has finished her photoshoot work and now Coed Media Group is ready to kickoff the college football season with a can't miss NYC party. Everyone is invited. If you are a struggling blogger, recent grad looking to break into the business or just wanting to be in the presence of Cam's Pants, be there. Official details.
It's football season and you know that that means. Football! It also means tailgating and that means grilling and drinking. In order to get your proper shine on before the game, we've compiled the best tailgating beers for you. Whether you're a distinguished gentleman or a broke-ass college student, you'll find what you need right here.
Bless his heart, Eli Manning tries so damn hard. He has that Super Bowl ring but is pretty much an after thought for the New York media because he's aloof and tucks his damn jersey into a pair of perfectly pressed kahkis. The Jets and Giants sent team reps to Bryant Park today for some "We Care" event and the media was able to get Eli next to Mark Sanchez. The results weren't pretty. JUMP!
Just as America was on track to stomp out racism and white face Halloween costumes were on the decline, ESPN The Magazine goes and imagines a white face Michael Vick. Not that the essay from Twitter legend Touré had anything to do with imagining a white face Vick. Actually, we skimmed over it. Surely it's good. But it's that white Vick that has white America losing its mind. Here are the best Photoshops & tweets. JUMP!
You guys are clamoring to read the LSU fight report so we'll give you what was provided to Busted Coverage by our Bayou informants. This is all of it. After you read it, go back to your message boards and fight amongst yourself. Light up Tiger Droppings. We're just northerners who don't really have a dog in this fight, but hope Jefferson is QBing Sept. 24 at WVU. See you then! Documents - JUMP!
It's kinda sad that The Vest has all but faded from our memory thanks to Donna Shalala. But Ohio hasn't forgotten Vest. He's still The Man at Graffiti Burger in Grandview Heights, Ohio, a suburban hideout for OSU fans. It's a HUGE week in Ohio for football. High school teams kickoff Friday night and there is much debate over whether coaches - as the state's football association is advising - will wear ties to honor Jimbo. Most won't. Maybe Jim isn't The Man afterall. (via @marcus)
Tommy Tuberville's final season as the head coach at Auburn was a complete disaster. It was 2008, just four years removed from a 13-0 campaign and his team laid an egg with a 5-7 record and no bowl game. He was promptly run out of town & some guy named Chizik was brought in. Tubs landed at Texas Tech but a big part of him was still sitting in Alabama, specifically on Lake Martin. A giant, million-dollar house still belongs to Tommy. It's STILL on the market JUMP!
