This tweet just came down from LSU QB Jordan Jefferson: Finally got all my shoes back. Now my shoe game is back to being
#outrageous hahahahaha. You might remember that cops confiscated his shoe collection after allegedly kicking some guy's face in outside a Baton Rouge bar. Things have finally cooled down, Jefferson is back on the football team and Jefferson can go back to studying Thomas Jefferson & his major - sports administration. (@JJefferson9)
We know a Delaware gambler who's going to kick back and pound some brews during Monday Night Football. Some genius finally destroyed The Man and took $100,000 from the Delaware lottery via a 15-team parlay, becoming the first human to accomplish the feat since the state introduced sports gambling in 2009. Homeboy hasn't stepped forward to claim his prize, but we can confirm that it IS NOT Stu Feiner of late 80s, early 90s fame. Details - JUMP!
What are Tony Romo haters talking about at the water cooler this morning? Tony Romo's Hail Mary attempt at the end of yesterday's game in Foxboro. Yes, the Cowboys lost again and fans needed to unload on someone. Romo's out of bounds Hail Mary attempt sent them into full NSFW mode. The hatred wasn't as extreme as post-Lions game, but it's still worth your time. Special emphasis on white guy writing that Tony is a bitch ass nigga. JUMP!
What a great week in the NFL, eh boys? Couldn't ask for more than a 'break your hand punching a wall' intensity game in Detroit. Think that Thanksgiving Day 12:30 kickoff against Green Bay is going to be any good? Anyway, Stafford went to Ford Field looking very October. Then he went home 5-1. It was a horrible weekend for Michigan. UM is undefeated no more, the Tigers went home to the D.R. & Mitch Albom's thesaurus isn't horny. Dude is spent. Another week. Let's get rolling.
We're back in the Busted Coverage office this week for Week 7 of the college football season and ESPN GameDay's stop in Eugene for Oregon vs. Arizona State. The Ducks cheerleading team has never looked better with the lights turned out. Corso is hopped up on a 5-Hour and Herbstreit's frosted tips are shining. It's time to get this mess started yet again. Expect lots of smoking weed signs. JUMP!
Ahhh, so that's how Chargers superfan Pablo Hernandez was able to afford great seats at Jack Murphy and the gas in that giant Ford Excursion. California State Police say they made a traffic stop on Pablo this week and happened to bring a drug dog in for a further inspection. Oh, what do we have here, Pablo? A little nose candy? Like 42 pounds of it? C'mon, homeboy, you can't be driving around Southern California and figure the cops won't stop you for an autograph. JUMP!
We checked, no Dallas entry in the Lingerie Football League so Angela Rypien doesn't have to worry about a brawl with Lone Star state chicks over this shirt she was wearing the other night during practice. Ms. Rypien is on a heater after Yahoo.com yesterday featured her. Guess who was out in front of the Rypien/Mark Rypien story way back in April? Of course we were. The LFL finally has a public face and she's sorta the Ochocinco of the league. It's great. JUMP!
There's been a slight buzz in the college football world about Ryan Leaf coming out of the woodwork via the release of 596 Switch, a book that will be released tomorrow by the epic NFL bust that chronicles his years at Washington State. Ironically, Leaf is making it Ryan Leaf Weekend in Pullman while Suck For Luck Chairman of the Board, Andrew Luck rolls in with Stanford. Yes, that RV will be going wherever Ryan Leaf peddles this book. Tour details - JUMP!
Kudos to the Oregon Ducks cheerleading unit. Yes, we've said that over and over again. While other cheerleading units like the Song Girls, the crazy Indianapolis Colts' cheerleaders, the Jets Flight Crew and others are embargoing their galleries, UO is headed in the opposite direction. Last year the ladies went on a lake retreat. That became an instant BC greatest hit. For 2011 the bar was raised. How about the Oregon Duck mascot & 140 HP hauling ladies around on a boat? JUMP!
What's not to love about the University of Oregon? The football team is wonderful. The weather is Florida-esque, minus the sunshine and warm temperatures, for eight months out of the year. And the university will market themselves like no other. ESPN GameDay rolls into town and wants to make camp with the Lillis business school building as a backdrop. But wait, something is missing. It needs a giant 'O' logo. Two maintenance guys get in a cherry picker. BAM. JUMP!
As one observer noted after learning of a report claiming the Dallas Cowboys are using sweatshop labor in El Salvador to make toddler creepers: "Wear America's Team Clothing Made in El Salvador" ... Now that is a marketing slogan. That's cool and all, but we're more interested in how the workers are treated, specifically the language used to make the workers give 110% effort. "You're a piece of garbage. You don't know how to work and you're good for nothing." JUMP!
Oh, there are big problems at the University of Wisconsin not pertaining to getting drunk and smoking weed on the campus. Barry Alvarez and Bret Bielema have had it with your obscene chants during nationally televised football games. Want to get a bad reputation and not be selected for the BCS Championship after going undefeated because Oklahoma is undefeated and Alabama has one loss? Keep it up. F-bombs and "Eat S*&^" are hereby banned. JUMP!
Still trying to figure out if this guy is a beggar or just chilling out along the road with a 'Native Needs Tebow' sign. If he's begging, this is the greatest way to bum a few bucks we've seen in ages. Playing the Tebow card. Like it. In other Tebow news this morning, Woody Paige came up with an original idea for a column - What Will Tebow Do This Sunday. "Tebow will determine his own future in Denver by the way he plays over the next three months." Seriously? (via @SirKingRyan)
Be honest with yourself for a minute. Joan & Melissa Rivers three-way, "How Many Beers?" Not even joking, 12-14 & a vodka/Red Bull nightcapper. Just think of all the bucket list items to scratch off. Bagging 70+ year old - CHECK. Mother-Daughter Three-Way - CHECK. Famous Chicks - CHECK. 6 Degrees Of Kevin Bacon - CHECK. And don't think for a second Joan doesn't get work done on the beef curtains. Oh, hey, Erin Andrews! Call us. email@example.com
The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators may not have much of a sense of humor, but we do. That's why we find Occupy Herbstreit somewhat hilarious. The movement, if you can call it that, is based around a blog and features a rogue college football fan holding up ironic signs that play off the Occupy Wall Street themes only are about college football. The movement is both small and young, but we've grabbed the best from Occupy Herbstreit. Check it!
You think Mark Rypien really enjoys men checking out his daughter's rack and ass while she plays tackle football? Would you if she were your daughter? But he takes it because Angela continues to chase her dream of a perfect 4-0 season and Lingerie Football League championship. Would he get in a LFL arena brawl over comments? "What good’s that gonna do? And if I did whoop his a** in the parking lot, what good’s that gonna do? I’ll get a lawsuit against me.” (via Lost Lettermen)
There isn't a sluttier holiday than Halloween for women who'll go all year just waiting for that one night to slut it up just so they have something cool to post on Facebook. Being that we're a sports-themed site, it's our job to show ladies that there are even more options to raise your game in 2011. Bodypaint is the new black. Are you single? You won't be after going as Calvin Johnson jersey chick to some Detroit bar. Are you a single lesbian? You won't be after going as Romo. JUMP!
You know it has to suck for Tom Brady to not be able to take his boy into the backyard and smash two-hoppers while Ben Brady plays shortstop. The logical move is to get a giant 45-acre spread where Gisele can plant some flowers and frolic in the sweet grass. Hence, the attempted sale - yet again - of Brades Beacon St. penthouse. Being the nice guy that Tom is, he's lowering the asking price $400,000 and asking $10.5mm. Step up, Patriots superfan. JUMP!
Thanks to Facebook we can put a sports angle on this story that's been driving us crazy all morning. You see, Joseph Bartorillo is a Steelers fan. He also must of hated his female coworkers at Proctor & Gamble in NE Pennsylvania. One thing led to another - over 20 months - and Joe was injecting his semen into yogurt cups eventually eaten by those female coworkers. Yeah, the story of how this all went down is quite disturbing. Full details - JUMP!
You might remember our report last month on how Todd Blackledge's prized Mercedes two-door was on eBay and some lucky bidder was about to own the NFL legend's first big rookie purchase. We're happy to report that the 500-Series SEC fetched $5,250 after a ferocious 29 bid outburst from car freaks. After being part of Todd's life for 27 years, this beauty will likely be driven by some old Jew in Fort Lauderdale. Photos and Todd's emotional letter about the car - JUMP!
The blogs that dork out on all things 'football' have been gagging over the news that Tim Tebow ended Week 5 with a better Total QBR ranking than Aaron Rodgers in ESPN's index. It's just the kind of emotional reaction ESPN was hoping you morons would give them. Thanks for justifying some stupid QB rating system. Today we learn that even Aaron Rodgers thinks these rankings are horse#$%. "I played a full game," Rodgers tells ESPN 540. JUMP!
Sometimes it just seems like the officials have it out for your team and maybe they do, but we've never seen anything quite this blatant, especially at such a high level. We've got video of a referee pushing the ball forward after it was spotted to, seemingly, try to give Wake Forest a first down in their game against Florida State. Wake Forest would win 35-30. Home cooking? You be the judge.
Well, well, well the day finally arrived when Steve Spurrier and the University of South Carolina had enough of Stephen Garcia. (The guess is that we'll be hearing about an arrest or worse in coming days.) An Oklahoma football reporter's tweet about a failed urine test sent the Internet into a frenzy this afternoon. Um, like we told you guys Garcia was pounding brews a couple weeks ago. Dayglow party, anyone? Send your Stephen Garcia party memories: firstname.lastname@example.org
Via our Internet sources, the Green Bay Packers ticket office this week sent out notices to fans who are on the team's season ticket waiting list. One guy (@MikeJMacco) reports that his spot at 26,210 is after joining the wait when he was 15 years old. The form is almost anti-climatic. Sorta like, 'What are you waiting around for?' The Packers waiting list is now officially bigger than the Sunday circulation of the city's newspaper. At least 88, 595 are on it. JUMP!
Maybe you remember Cris Carter dissing Calvin Johnson back in August. Last night was Megatron's official coming out party and he didn't disappoint, grabbing 5 balls for 130 yards & 1 TD. The performance from the Lions was so great that Mitch Albom could only start sentences this morning with one word, 'Change.' Now 5-0, the Lions get San Fran and Atlanta at Ford Field in consecutive weeks before a roadie to Denver. Tix still available.
Broncos QB Brady Quinn got passed over Tim Tebow in yesterday's loss to San Diego. Meanwhile, his girlfriend, gymnast Alicia Sacramone tore her Achilles while training in Japan. The couple may be cursed, but they're still in love, dammit! And why not? She's gorgeous & he has no reason to stay in Denver now that the Jesus Boy era has begun. We salute your level of commitment Brady Quinn and we'll do it with a gallery of your hot girlfriend. Check it!
Kevin Ridley, a photojournalist for WCNC in Charlotte, N.C., took this shot during yesterday's Saints-Panthers game. Upon first glance we were drawn in by the Halloween costume, but quickly realized this was a 'situation.' It appears that dad has hijacked his daughter from a nice day at home where Lucy would be playing with dolls. Instead she's creeped out by daddy's fascination with a 1-4 rookie. It's ok, we're told police have investigated & it's not an abduction. (via @kjridley)
Busted Coverage has been to three ESPN GameDay live shows this season. And we've been behind the gates for all three. Yes, we've touched Erin Andrews. Shirt on shirt contact. Photos have been taken. There has been chitchat exchanged. In other words, she likes us. We're not idiots like Boomer Sooner fan at this weekend's Red River Shootout (yes, it was straight up murder). Toolbag @ryandavidreaves & EA went at it yesterday over an incident in Dallas. JUMP!
Saturday at Tennessee vs. Georgia was the last official trip Busted Coverage has planned this fall. There might be a last-minute, game-time decision type trip but not likely. So this was the last hurrah to a season of tailgating, debauchery and ladies in sundress/riding boot combos. What did we learn in 2011? BC keeps getting older and SEC girls stay the same age. It's ridiculous. What else? A 'Now Accepting Volunteers' shirt attracts the chicks. JUMP!
For those of you forced yesterday to watch the Jets get manhandled by the Patriots and without the super-awesome NFL Red Zone channel, there was this incident in the NFL. It was the resurrection of Tim Tebow. He's back. He's trending on Twitter. Will He start next week? Will John Fox be forced to start Him? Never before in the history of this league has a third-string QB caused this much commotion. After the jump, the NSFW hate speech from Week 5. JUMP!
BC reader Blake S. sent word very early this morning: "My friend got this yesterday." After 10 minutes of Google searches it seems that Blake's friend is the very first mentally stable person to get a giant Al Davis calf tat after the passing of the 82-year-old Raiders owner. It's not the tat we would have gotten, but it's not our leg. In other NFL news, it wasn't sexy last night, but the Packers went to 5-0 with a second-half comeback on the Falcons. Let's get rolling!
Want to know what's great about this job? Walking into an airport hotel bar, finding a seat at said bar, having a Mexican cross dresser on your left (seriously) and the Tigers-Yankees on a TV to the right. A couple of construction workers head to their room and you move right. Minutes later you ask the guy on his iPad thingy how the Tigers went up 2-0. Three hours & a few beers later you've met a friend. Clemson fan, Chris. (Not pictured, that's some random tool.)
Remain calm, Michigan fan, we've yet to confirm that Denard Robinson has a raging ex-WAG that is correct in that her boyfriend was a low-down, two-timing, dirty dog. We were on the scene this morning as a WAG let loose on Denard's account with claims of hurt, neglect and love gone awry. Just another reason why college athletes shouldn't have a Twitter account or is this an attempt by a rogue to destroy an undefeated season? Make the call. Tweets - JUMP!
Before we go any further, please realize that Ashley Ferrara is an Oklahoma University law student. Like, the real deal. Buys books. Walks amongst the football players. She's not just some random bikini model living in Tampa who says she roots for the Sooners. Ashley has a vested interest. And then realize that she agreed to shoot, exclusive to Busted Coverage, some Scar-Jo mirror pics for this week's Red River Rivalry. Boomer Sooner, indeed! JUMP!
Sent to us this morning regarding yesterday's report on Tommy Rees's sister arrest at Purdue game & possible slutty ways: "u guys got a lot of nerve printing a story about his sister like that..one so many can read.. maybe her parents.. her brother. you have really put the knife in her.. and your so cowardly to boot.. not printing the guys names.. if i was rees and knew someone, like the mafia, i would have u hurt badly...george cunningham" We'll leave the light on, George.
Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is loaded. How loaded? He just forked over $70 million for a gigantic luxury yacht called The Lady Anne. Maybe he can throw another $40 million at Albert Haynesworth and use him as an anchor. We've got the particulars, we've got the photos, and we've got the story of Snyder's latest purchase, which says "I'm a bigger baller than you could even dream of!" Check it!
