It's that time of year when Busted Coverage unleashes it's photo gathering & college research team on campuses from the Atlantic to the Pacific in search of college cheerleaders. Today we go straight up the USA Today Top 25 poll and peek in at Florida State where, for the first time in a long time, the ladies will be cheering for a high-profile program. Our first subject for '11 is Chelsea. Go crazy, Brent Musberger! JUMP!
Our special agents on the ground in State College shot this photo of Joe Paterno at yesterday's practice where the old coot somehow managed to get his ass onto the practice field. His wing is busted up after the freak practice accident, but it was just a little bump in the road. There he is with his two-deep roster and a personal chauffeur cruising around practice. Meanwhile, his son was running a caption contest. JUMP!
The Indiana football team has a new football coach named Kevin Wilson and this is his first BCS-level head coaching job. Dude is amped to take the Hoosiers from the usual Big Ten doormat to a team at the top of the conference. Good luck, coach. Kevin took time out of his morning today to join the Zakk & Jack (Trudeau) Show. It didn't exactly go very well for either side. Let's just say Kevin wasn't in a mood for joking - JUMP!
Mason Brodine is an undrafted free agent from the University of Nebraska-Kearney. He's fresh out of college, never played on ESPN or in a bowl game. He doesn't even really have a player profile page on Raiders.com. The guy wasn't even allowed at the University of Nebraska Pro Day. Seriously, not allowed to show his skills at the state funded institution. But here he is today on BC showing off his rookie hazing haircut. JUMP!
We now know, thanks to the Realtor listing, that free agent safety Darren Sharper has one of the NFL's coolest Euro couches and a sweet stainless steel pool table. The ex-Saints, Vikings and Packers INT machine has put his Miami Beach condo on the market and little did we know that this guy has the kinda coin to own such a sweet pad. Ocean view? Over 3,000 sq. ft.? This one is for you. Just $4.5mm. JUMP!
Amazingly, yesterday there were only a couple of tweets re: Brett Favre and not even one from Peter King or ESPN. Suddenly the guy isn't being rumored to be in camp with the Dolphins or any NFL team. So imagine our surprise when we found the guy with his arm around a possible high schooler (something...GHS) and wearing a gun-boat exposing greaser shirt while out in public. What's this all about? JUMP!
For those of you who laughed at us for buying Cam Newton's BCS Championship game pants, and emailed us to call us stupid, who's laughing now? About 13 hours ago, Playboy's Miss January 2010 Jaime Edmondson modeled the pants in a shoot that is going to make these pants bigger than life. The photos will become a must-see. Boys will clamor for a poster for their wall. Fathers will oblige. This is big time. JUMP!
Want to know what South Florida's two-deeps look like? Trying to keep track of who Utah has at safety? Interested in how Steve Sarkisian's offense will handle the departure of Jake Locker? Wrong blog. But if you want to see a year-old YouTube video of Auburn chick being egged on to eat this lizard, we're your site. 'C'mon, pound it. Getcha a swig of Dew and bite it in half.' Oh, college football how we love you. JUMP!
Think just because Tim Tebow has been named the 2nd-string QB in Denver the Bible-thumping fans are going to just sit at home and sulk? Not these Tebow fans. Look at how proud they are of those eyeblacks. It's not healthy for the young boy to learn this kind of behavior because by the time he reaches high school his ass is going to get lit up by upperclassmen who need some extra beer money. Good morning, let's go!
You have no idea how big of a smile came across the faces of those in the office today when we first noticed that Jimmy Johnson officially started tweeting at @JimmyJohnson. Why the excitement? Because it has been known for years amongst us sports Internet guys that Jimmy is living an amazing life in the Keys and he's never shy about showing us that life. Now we get to see it on a daily basis. Win. JUMP!
Just getting around to opening a Twitter account and have no idea who you should be following during the upcoming NFL season? BC sent our Twitter researcher, Robert, in search of the 50 NFL player Twitter accounts you need to follow - immediately. (Yes, T.O. is on the list. He'll be back.) Whether it's what they're eating or thinking, you must make these 50 individuals part of your daily life. The list - JUMP!
Look what we have this morning. The Detroit Lions might not have legitimate cheerleaders supporting them, but the organization does have these bros hanging at training camp. Never have understood the blue man, green man or insert your favorite color suit. But in this case it's great to see the Blue Men repping the Lions. Crooked hats. Keys to his rusted out 2001 Chrysler Sebring hanging around the neck. iPhone in the pants. 3rd year community college students. So much fun.
Know how much it costs to overnight 4 BC t-shirts and Cam Newton's BCS game-worn pants to Los Angeles? $74. Most of you remember how Busted Coverage bought Cam's pants from Auburn University back in May. Yeah, well now we're about to put the lovely Jaime Edmondson in those pants as part of our college/NFL football kickoff coverage. Other sites bore your ass to death with stupidity. Not us. JUMP!
Never been to an NFL training camp and want to really know what it’s like to sit in 100-degree heat while players stretch, hit tackling dummies and kickers try to split uprights? Busted Coverage is spending part of its summer to do a mini-NFL training camp tour. Our camp extravaganza continued Saturday night in Pittsford, NY. Redneck Bills' fan, Jorts & even a goth Bills' fan - JUMP!
Look, if your team is going to get its ass handed to them for 16 weeks this NFL season, at least make training camp fun, right? That's exactly what Pete Carroll has done by allowing a DJ spin some tunes. We know the guy has played The Clash, M.I.A. and Jimi Hendrix. The dude responsible for the tunes goes by DJ DV One. Get your requests in! JUMP!
Fallen hero Jim Tressel might have the support of his former players but now the mockery of Sweater Vest has spread to other Ohio campuses, specifically Ohio University. And there's more from the Tressel front. Players hoping to wear JT bracelets for their fallen warrior/father figure have been told that the plastic tributes won't be necessary. NO BRACELETS! Play football, morons. JUMP!
Back in the Spring it was leaked that John Madden's NYC apartment was on the market and the story kinda flew under the radar. First thought for us was, 'Why does John Madden need a NYC crash pad?' Of course there were appearances for CBS & NBC, but we're still trying to figure out why Mad Dog bought this place way back in 1985. If our memory serves us correctly, the guy was on the road for 16 weeks per year with maybe 3-4 weeks in the city for Jets/Giants games. But what do we know. His 2-bedroom hotel is about to pay him some cash back. This place is valuable. JUMP!
Never been to an NFL training camp and want to really know what it's like to sit in 100-degree heat while players stretch, hit tackling dummies and kickers try to split uprights? Busted Coverage is spending part of its summer to do a mini-NFL training camp tour. Our camp extravaganza kicked off yesterday in Berea, Ohio where the Cleveland Browns have their indoor complex and training camp facilities. Before we go any further, if you are looking for player updates and how Colt McCoy looked throwing the ball, wrong blog. JUMP!
Dallas Cowboys' training campers enjoyed some celebrity action yesterday as the infamous PeeWee Herman was in town to say hi. Why was PeeWee at Cowboys' camp? To see boys in tight pants. Um, obvious. According to the local media, Herman was in San Antonio to shoot a an episode of 'Top Chef' at the Alamo and figured a visit with Tony Romo, Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett would be great fun. Yesterday's secret word - COWBOYS - according to PeeWee's Twitter account.
