BC writer Monty tonight sent us this dispatch: Earlier today, some idiot who will remain nameless did a story "exposing" Auburn and their practice of using paid hosts and hostesses to take care of recruits while they're on campus. The hostesses, known as Tigerettes, and hosts, known as Tiger Hosts, are students who do indeed get paid for doing actual work. Kind of like when they paid me to mop the racquetball courts when I was in college.
Now think about this for a second, some sculpture artist named Franco Castelluccio has been working on a Tim Tebow piece that he hopes will bring $12,000. Don't misunderstand us, art is wonderful. The BC office has a couple of beautiful pieces we've picked up on trips to Santa Fe. We also understand that there is this thing called exploitation. How dare Franc play on the emotions of the hundreds of thousands of Tebow worshipers. Don't do it, people. It's just Timmy breaking a tackle. JUMP!
Our buddy Brandon over at BroBible, who considers himself a big fisherman, begins his day by checking Busted Coverage so let's give him something this Monday morning to wrap his head around. Of course Brandon doesn't care that Jacksonville Jaguars draft pick Blaine Gabbert is about to choke on his fly fishing pole. LOOK at that Rainbow! Nice one, eh Wenard? First thing ladies see is Blaine's runway good looks. First thing a fisherman zones in on is that fatty. Full shot after the JUMP!
Hayden Panettiere likes athletes, that we know. After breaking up with heavyweight champ Wladimir Klitschko, Panettiere has moved on with former University of Colorado and current New York Jets receiver Scotty McKnight, a seventh-round pick in this year's draft. Is Hayden out of her mind? This loser will be lucky to make the practice squad! Photos! JUMP!
You might remember yesterday when we helped make Jordan Jefferson famous this week for his answer to "Which Jefferson Is This?" pop quiz on ESPN. Of course he flubbed the answer to a picture of Thomas Jefferson by calling him George - on live national TV. Well, we can now report that Jordan exacted revenge on ESPN HQ by taking this photo and maybe getting in an ass grab on pageviews. You be the judge. Hand on the ass? Full photo - JUMP!
We're about 6 weeks out from the start of NFL training camps and still don't have a labor deal. At this point we're running out of lockout stories and stupid updates on Tim Tebow so let's mix it up today. Burnt Toast Editor Peter Burns suggested we spend some time chatting on Twitter with former porn star Ashlynn Brooke about the Packers and football in general. Great idea! Take the time today to fire off a question to this Oklahoma Sooners & Green Bay fan. A chick talking football to you should ease the pain of this stupid lockout.
PR guy Brad emailed us this week with this message. "I hope you are well! I just wanted to let you know that six Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders will be featured on Friday night’s episode of The Singing Bee, CMT’s highest rated original series. The cheerleaders will compete in this karaoke-style game show to win $10,000 for their chosen charity." Who cares about the charity? Cheerleaders playing Mad Libs karaoke? We're all in. Play along at home! JUMP!
Not since closet crapper Najeh Davenport have we heard about a football player (allegedly) doing anything this crazy. Atlanta Falcons cornerback Christopher Owens, a 2009 draft pick from San Jose State, is being investigated for trashing his ex-girlfriend and baby mama's apartment. Of course she ran off to TMZ bitching and complaining. Sounds fishy to us. Jaded baby mama? Full details of the trashing - JUMP!
So the NFL is plenty mad over a Chicago TV station's investigation into the use of players wearing league uniforms while advertising Exxxotica Expo 2011, which as you can guess involved porn stars. This is the same league that won't let bars advertise "Watch the Super Bowl here!" This is the same league that will destroy companies over copyright issues. Well, look what we found. How about the NFL logo itself splattered on a "Lockout Party" ad from this past weekend. And there's more! JUMP!
You know what gets an NFL GM excited? A wide receiver who can leap over his 6-foot-2 mother and still have clearance to make the landing. That guy holding the photo of former Georgia WR Kris Durham skying over his mom is Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider, who's in charge of building a team that can go 9-7 and make the playoffs. Schneider had an interesting draft strategy this year. He took a guy who never visited the team, but did send them the photo you see above. Full shot - JUMP!
By now it's clear Colts' owner Jim Irsay is the most engaged NFL exec using Twitter. The guy is well-known for his contests that have even gone as far as sending followers to the Super Bowl. But how cool would it be for an NFL owner to send you a case of beer, a signed letter containing a $100 bill & that sweet Colts visor cap? Yes, Jim Irsay sent one follower a case of PBR this week. That's the coolest hipster NFL move we've ever heard of. Photos - JUMP!
Stop for a second and think of all the out-of-shape, overweight, pork bellied 60-year-olds you know. Then segue to these two photos of NFL referee Ed Hochuli this week being stalked at his gym by San Diego radio reporter Marty Caswell. She tweeted early in the week, "Stalking, er being aggressive, does pay off. Ed Hochuli, interview at the gym, happens tomorrow...." Um, like, of course we want to see Ed ripping a couple sets. Who's up for some tricep work? PIC - JUMP!
It's pretty rare to see a #1 NFL draft pick and franchise QB whitewater rafting, but that's exactly what Cam Newton and his Carolina Panthers teammates were up to this week in Charlotte at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Who are we to judge how the Franchise spends his off time? All we can say, as you'll see after the JUMP, is that Jimmy Clausen is riding in the front of a raft while Newton has protection from the new guy, Jeremy Shockey.
Want more Tim Tebow golf photos? We do too because you guys are going nuts over Adonis and his physique, but it's time to move on to other Tebow golf news. After looking through 30 or 40 photos from the St. Jude Classic Pro-Am and noticed a very strange nugget. Look at those hands. Two gloves! Two friggin' gloves! Google "two gloves PGA." Folks, you are looking at the birth of a trend. Next time you hit the course and see a guy wearing two gloves while putting, think "Two-Gloves Timmy." More pics - JUMP!
Little sumthin' sumthin' this morning for all the new female readers who have descended upon Busted Coverage to see Tim Tebow's forearms. It's not a secret that Washington Redskins DB Laron Landry loves his body, especially the gun boats. L2 (yeah, we're really too white to be using such terms) went Yfrogging yesterday and tweeted a few shots of how the body is holding up during the lockout. Gallery - JUMP!
So, yeah, we've been hammering this Colts cheerleader beat to death over the last two days. Yesterday it was a profile of the crazy, alcohol drinking rookie Kaley who'll be making her NFL debut if the lockout ever ends. Today we happened upon outtakes from last year's Colts' bikini calendar shoot and have determined that photographing chicks along the Ohio River has earned the team honors in the "All-Time Worst NFL Cheerleader Calendar Shoot Locale," contest. Yes, that bikini chick is holding a piece of driftwood. PHOTOS! JUMP!
Our friends at Sportress of Blogitude published a Twitpic this afternoon of Tim Tebow swatting golf balls at today's St. Jude Classic Pro-Am. Not content with just copying SB's post, we went hunting for other shots of Adonis gun-boating on the golf course. Ladies, please hide the husband and kids. You are going to lose it when you see what we found.
Ahh, the day has finally arrived when all the work we put into proving that Terrelle Pryor was Hollywood As Hell have finally come to fruition. We're Ohio born, bred and tax paying and knew pretty much right away that this guy was HUGE trouble for Ohio State. How? Our inbox from 2008-10 speaks for itself. And so does the report we filed last year when Terrelle Pryor still used Facebook and filed this definition of what makes a woman a biotch. TPeezy's definition - JUMP!
Rachel Glandorf first made her Busted Coverage debut back in 2008 as the then-girlfriend of Texas QB Colt McCoy. The two got married last year and she went pretty much silent until yesterday on Colin Cowherd's show where she unloaded on college football boosters and said "You cannot expect 19-20 year old kids to say no to free stuff when they’re in college." It was exactly what was needed for Rachel's career to take off again. She's still under 3,000 followers on Twitter, which should change - soon. Here is our tribute to this fine woman who has officially made her WAG debut. Photos - JUMP!
NFL players do stupid things on a fairly regular basis. Detroit Lions rookie running back Mikel Leshoure is getting a head start on his career in the "dumb" department. Leshoure, who played his college ball at Illinois, recently decided it was a good idea to decorate his left arm with a Detroit Lions logo, which doesn't appear to be one of those rub-on tats. Full shot - JUMP!
We've had it with all these NFL cheerleaders who bore us to death with their fancy careers, charity work and anti-drinking stance. Thankfully the Indianapolis Colts cheerleading team awarded a roster spot to rookie Kaley Collier. Tipster Jeff writes, "Fellas, you have to see this chick I know who made the Colts cheerleading team. I'm in love." Jeff will need to fight us to virtually marry this Indiana native. And from what we can tell she didn't even go to college! Love it! PHOTOS - JUMP!
Lions' QB Matthew Stafford has never been accused of looking ripped like Jay Cutler (the bodybuilder), but we've noticed a disturbing trend over the last month if you are a Detroit fan. We've analyzed photos from Staff's 2010 summer vacation and the following photos from 2011. Notice the double-chin, the developing man cans and the amount of beer being pounded. Just a warning to Lions Nation. Your boy is bloating. Gallery! JUMP!
There was a Jim Tressel pep rally yesterday in Columbus included song, chants, predictions and about 200 students and supporters thanking The Vest for lying to the NCAA. Media reports from the event say about 200 supporters marched in 90-degree heat from campus to Jim's gated community to honor their disgraced coach. Of course Jim was home, dressed in OSU gear and ready to sing. Video & Photos! JUMP!
Never knew there was a University of Central Arkansas? Didn't realize the school was installing a new playing surface on its football field that looks like a bad paint job on a 1992 Chevy Geo? Us either, but some dude on Twitter just happened to be in the neighborhood, saw the field and decided to provide America with another school to hate because it got rid of fake green grass. You're dead to us, UCA. Purple and black grass? D-E-A-D. Bonus shot - JUMP!
News out of the Tony Romo wedding just keeps getting better and better. First, Busted Coverage showed you how the $66mm QB had $20 items on his gift registry. Then there was the report that pizza and ribs were served. But the home run of the evening had to be the Romo wedding band choice, none other than Steel Panther who sports such classics as Eatin Ain't Cheatin', Asian Hooker, Party All Day (#$%# All Night) and our all-time favorite Thar She Blows. How do we know Panther played the wedding? See after the jump.
On November 17, 2009 Busted Coverage posted photos of Terrelle Pryor looking slightly boozy at The Little Bar in Columbus, Ohio. Said establishment is a 21 & up bar. Pryor wasn't 21. Almost immediately the hate emails started flowing into our inbox. Ohio Sate fans promised to kick our asses, said it was a non-story and stayed totally loyal to the program. Today Jim Tressel fell on a knife and resigned. Plenty of blame will go to Tressel, but a five-star recruit from Pennsylvania was the nail in the coffin.
We know most of you have hit the road for the weekend and won't be back to work until Tuesday. However, BC had one last post in us today and it's with great pleasure that we can now say that Cam Newton's BCS Championship pants reside in Big Ten country. There are big plans for these Under Armour pants. Jaime Edmondson is in negotiations with us to slide into Cam's Pants for a photo shoot. A couple more shots of BC's new prized possession - JUMP!
While there are reports of the Atlanta Falcons cutting the pay of front office staffers back home in Georgia, the Falcons cheerleader squad is in Bermuda busily compiling a photo dossier that'll serve as the official 11-'12 swimsuit calendar. Like we care if some secretary had Arthur Blank cut her pay by 15%. Deal with it, losers. We have cheerleaders in bikinis to look at and from what we can see from the first two days this should be an interesting calendar. Chain link fence outside a gun range is a nice touch. See what's doing with this up-to-the-minute compilation gallery. JUMP!
Back in 2007 Tony Romo signed a six-year, $67.5 million contract to remain with the Dallas Cowboys as their franchise...
You've been warned Europe. If you see a 300-lb. giant black dude barreling down the road over a course that'll take Ndamukong Suh from London to Istanbul over the next 7 days, please get out of the road. The Detroit Lions DT will be driving the Mercedes you see here, starting just a few hours ago, against the likes of Bode Miller, Tony Hawk, The Hoff, Christian Slater and other Euro names you wouldn't recognize here in the States. More photos of Suh's insane ride - JUMP!
If you are new to Busted Coverage it's highly likely you haven't noticed an old series that this site made famous called "The Next Erin Andrews." It's exactly what it sounds like. We go out and hunt for ladies who'll one day fill the shoes of Erin Pageviews. Today's candidate is Nadia Larysa, a Chicago Lingerie Football Leaguer who has sideline career aspirations. What are Nadia's sideline credentials? See for yourself, after the JUMP!
While other NFLers are busy having parties with porn stars at Miami clubs, Tim Tebow used his Saturday nights to hang with the likes of Bono during U2's Denver stop on its 360 tour. Ray Lewis, now famously, predicted NFL players would resort to acting like fools if this lockout goes much longer. Not Tebow. We're still hunting for pics, stories, tips of this guy falling off the tracks and so far nothing. NOTHING! No bad influences, no alcohol at a U2 concert. Tebow and Bono - JUMP!
It's officially NFL cheerleader bikini calendar season! That's right, no stinkin' lockout can stop NFL teams from sending their ladies to exotic locales to shoot a calendar that'll serve as a remembrance if the 2011 season is lost to a lockout. That's why this year's bikini calendar season is critical. All two-pieces are on deck. From our count the New England Patriots will have at least 24 cheerleader members and staff in Aruba this week to pound out a killer calendar. (Still efforting to figure out if Alexa Flutie is on this trip.) The initial crop of Aruba shots - JUMP!
Yesterday we showed you Ray Allen's $3.7mm, 6 3/4 bath Seattle house that's be on the market. Now comes word that Troy Aikman is selling his $24,000,000 Texas mansion that happens to coincide with news in January that the former Cowboys' QB and his wife were splitsville. It's believed that this is the most expensive house in the Dallas area on the market right now. Take a peak at the house details - and the mortgage calculator - after the JUMP!
And we have a winner for 'NFL Running Back Mug Shot Of The Week' thanks to Bears' RB Garrett Wolfe not paying a bar tab at a Miami Beach bar. Dude is a free agent, refusing to pay a tab and then attacking off-duty police officers. In other words, as you'll see, Wolfe's NFL career is probably over, but he'll always have this infamous arrest pic and those drunken eyes. Bro was in town for Heat-Bulls and this happens. Full story of Garrett's tussle - JUMP!
This one goes out to all you dorks who still buy trading cards, specifically the fellas who are into the cards featuring jersey swatches. You might be getting ripped off because Mark Ingram probably won't wear #80 in the NFL, making the cards that are eventually manufactured from this signing event worthless in our eyes. But, who are we to ruin your fun or tell you what to do with that cash? We just paid $1,525 for Cam Newton's BCS Championship pants.Full shot of fatty! JUMP!
