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!
'Big' day for normally worthless players and teams in the NFL. Chiefs? Oh, what the hell, playoff bound. Carson Palmer? Shoulder is still worthless. Then we have Jabar Gaffney hogged up at the end of the first half in Carolina. And Tim Tebow, emotional, after his Broncos pulled off the improbable and kept Miami in the Suck for Luck sweepstakes. NFL.com is actually running a 'True Gamer' headline this morning with a photo of Tebow. We're fired up. Halloween Week!
East Lansing woke up this morning to bright sunny skies and a perfect record thanks to one of the craziest endings to a college football game in the 21st Century. In case you're just waking up and haven't seen how MSU beat Wisconsin, here is your video proof of the dramatics. Earlier in the day, BC had boots on the ground for ESPN GameDay where MSU students wanted to marry Erin Andrews & Russell Wilson was the object of nightlight jokes. JUMP!
Mark down this date in football history - Bill Belichick wore a suit on a sidelines. Major moment in time. The Hooded Wookiee was actually in Louisville for the game. We figure it was to see his son play for Rutgers, but still efforting what the deal was with the jacket and tie. BC is up early and about to hit the road to East Lansing for ESPN GameDay. It's a Michigan State first since 1999. Of course MSU cheerleaders are excited for this huge opportunity.
Of course the NFL has plenty of stupid rules that are said to maintain the league's high standing in society. Then there is this cellphone rule that we never knew about. It seems that Troy Polamalu was on the sidelines last week - post concussion - and got a phone from doctors to call his wife. How he remembered her number is perplexing, but he called. The NFL finds out and BOOM, $10,000 fine. Not joking. Highest phone bill ever. JUMP!
After the huge success of Oklahoma Sooners superfan (and law student) Ashley Ferrara, we decided it was time to start efforting other models with BCS affiliations who'd go Scar-Jo for you guys. Ashley recommended her friend Tiffany Oertel, an Orange County, California fitness model. One thing led to another and we learned Tiffany had a Boise State shirt in the closet perfectly shredded for a Busted Coverage photoshoot. Once again, Uncle BC coming through. JUMP!
Our original choice for Morning Twitpic was lonely Arizona chick all by herself in the stands near the end of last night's blowout, 48-12, victory over UCLA. Her lonely, arms crossed, demeanor seemed like a good way of getting the morning started. But it was 'Popeye' that stole our hearts. The forearm jumped off the screen at us. Then our eyes moved left to that giant wedding ring. And the black biker bands. $100 says he's 26. That desert will age you. Let's get rolling.
You might remember last week when Busted Coverage debuted the very first known Al Davis tattoo post-RIP. Now comes word that yesterday some guy still grieving over Al's passing went out and got AFL Al on his body (Update: that's Al on a bicep). What's becoming apparent from the first two tats is that Raiders fan wants to remember young rebel Al. Why won't someone step up and get Ballsack Al tatted on their shoulder. Get a quote, we might spring for it.JUMP!
While pregnant women are posing in Steelers bodypaint, there is Jim Fassel preparing his UFL Las Vegas Locomotives team for its 3rd straight league championship game tomorrow night. Seriously. Many expect this will be the last you'll ever hear of the UFL. Only four teams remain in the league and two have to play for the title. Virginia gets the pleasure of making the trip to Vegas. In other news, NFL Films will be unleashing this catalog. Let's get rolling!
Notre Dame is a bully -- not so much on the football field like they once were, but definitely in the legal arena. The university is forcing a small school in Kansas that was leveled by a tornado and only reopened this year to change their Fighting Irish logo. Apparently, people were confusing the high school with the university... or something. This leads us to believe the Chapman High School football team really sucks, too.
