By now we all know the deal with Dez Bryant and his new rules. The guy can't go to strip clubs, has to be home by midnight, blah, blah, blah. It's pretty sad that it's come to this with Dez. The guy has all the talent in the world and just can't seem to get his sh*t together. The guy was sued by creditors, got in a nightclub fight with Lil' Wayne, then to top it all off, he went and beat his mother. The Cowboys have had enough. No drinking! No strippers! Babysitters! Twitter went nuts! JUMP!
The AFC West is always a question mark. Chargers-Broncos. Broncos-Chargers. Throw Peyton Manning into the mix and things get even hazier. DEN & S.D. are clear front-runners in the division, but will Peyton's neck stay healthy? Maybe. Will Philip Rivers be Philip Rivers? Probably. Going to go ahead and count the Chiefs and Raiders out already because how far can Carson Palmer and Matt Cassel really get you? 9-7 wins the division, right? JUMP!
We should just assume former Oregon football captain and quarterback Nate Costa isn't having sex with or dating a current Ducks cheerleader. Costa, who won the team's 2010 Most Inspirational Player award, was part of the 2010 team that played in the BCS Championship against Auburn. That was in January 2011. Today, just over a year and a few odd months later, Costa decided it was time to diss the looks of UO cheerleaders. JUMP!
Sorry to interrupt what was probably a great Monday. Could use some help here. Look at this Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleader pic we found. LOOK AT IT. The picture was a screenshot from this weekend's game against the Patriots. Let's just say this girl has seen better days. Why can't we figure out who she is? Yes, this is our bread and butter, but this time we need your help. JUMP!
You know who nearly died during yesterday's Broncos-49ers game? This security guard taking a David Akers laser to the left shoulder blade. Even Joe Buck was concerned for Security Bro, thinking he was concussed from a shot to the melon. Replay shows it was a shoulder shot, though. You put Akers' left leg in the thin air and he's bouncing shots off people standing 10 feet behind the end zone. Thankfully Security Bro will survive and hopefully work a full season. JUMP!
That Alabama fan tattoo from a couple of weeks ago that BC introduced to the Internet is still sending shock waves through the SEC. Take LSU fan @skillet2396. This guy spent a considerable amount of time last week tweeting pretty much every major ESPN Twitter account, begging them to take notice of his Mike The Tiger. So, let's have a tat-off. Better SEC mascot tattoo: Mike The Tiger or Big Al? JUMP!
Catch any of the Jets-Panthers game last night? Jets looked good right? This team is becoming more and more of a laughing stock with every passing week. Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano keep telling fans that things are fine, that they're waiting until the regular season to "unleash" their offense. The media is quickly becoming very critical and so are fans. They're sick of Tebow, sick of Sanchez and sick of the lack of scoring! JUMP!
The Oregon cheerleaders wearing bikinis at Oregon's Triangle Lake is quickly becoming a college tradition unlike any other. Sure, the USC Song Girls wearing their sweaters into the Lake Tahoe waters is cool, but there are like four girls at that event. Not the UO cheer team. Last week, they packed a bus, brought along the Duck and made a 37 mile drive to the lake. How does the top college cheerleading team keep its crown? A lake bikini-fest. JUMP!
Can we get past the notion that the NFC East is the best division in the NFL? Enough is enough. The Cowboys, like usual, look good on paper. Michael Vick will be on IR by week 10, leading to the Nick Foles era. RGIII and the Redskins are going to be a bright spot, but it looks like the division is the Giants to lose again. Even Vegas is saying the Cowboys are in huge trouble. The OVER/UNDER wins total is set at 7.39. Yet another year of mediocrity. JUMP!
What do we know about the AFC East heading into the 2012 season? The Patriots, with the addition of Brandon Lloyd, should sweep the division, win 12 games and have home-field advantage in the playoffs. The Dolphins will be lucky to win 3-4 games, the Jets will be lucky to break .500 and the Bills are still Bill Belichick's b*tch. Don't waste your time emailing us that the Jets can win the division. Look at the schedule. It's a mess. JUMP!
Gulp. How bad is the Jets offense, minus the wildcat wrinkles Sexy Rexy won't unveil? Still no preseason TD. Tebow 4-of-14 and 1 INT. Sanchez had a pick. And the boos! THE PRESEASON BOOS. The NY Post is attacking the performance - today's cover. Sanchez told the media that the Jets are saving their good stuff for the regular season. Oh, boy. (Via @steve_amalfe) In orgasm news, this woman has one at least 100 times a day! Let's get rolling!
It's been an exhaustive search through the Busted Coverage archives, but we completed our task to compile the 101 Greatest ESPN GameDay signs just in time for the 2012 kickoff. The show is now in its 26th season so the search went back as far as the Internet and YouTube would let us. Lee, Kirk, Desmond and Fowler get things started next Saturday from Cowboys Stadium for Alabama-Michigan. JUMP!
Well, it didn't take long for someone to attack Brett Favre's offensive play calling at the high school level. Oak Grove (Miss.) did improve to 2-0 last night with a 30-20 win over Purvis, but not before a scare. It took a 17-point effort in the fourth quarter for the Gunslinger to hold off OG's rivals and stay perfect in high offensive coordinator career. But the detractors are already surfacing. JUMP!
What gets BC excited about the Canadian Football League? Not much. It is funny, however, to look at CFL rosters, where they list guys as "Imports" or "Non-Imports." Anyway, let's get to this huge hit in the Week 9 game featuring Montreal vs. Hamilton. QB Henry Burris, still a legend up north, launches a pass that is picked off. That's bad news for his teammate, Onrea Jones, who is about to get lit up by Kyries Hebert. JUMP!
High school football in Ohio starts tonight. You know what people in Ohio do from August. 25 through the Super Bowl? Think about football. Watch football. Call radio shows to talk football. Go on message boards to start a new conspiracy theory about college football. And throw a football full of drugs into a prison yard. That's right, Janine Fulton, an ex-corrections worker was arrested for going Brandon Weeden at a jail. JUMP!
Of course you have a '69 Jersey' buddy. You know the guy: lives by YOLO. He's probably married; his wife hates him, too. But he's the hardo who'll walk into an opposing team's stadium wearing a 'Your Mom 69' jersey. Your goal is to not get stabbed or shot. 69 YOLO doesn't care. The wife is about to leave his ass and he's not at a football game to meet a wife. He's there to crush beers and maybe throw a couple punches. JUMP!
What separates BC from all the other sports blogs rambling on about fantasy football rankings, how many wins the San Diego Chargers will have in 2012 and Tebow? We actually go out and find hot chicks who'll talk football and send us insane photos. Take today's subject, Luna Barberan (@Lunascam). She's from Spain, but her husband (sorry) taught her all about football & the New England Patriots. JUMP!
Who is only college mascot in college football who chugs beers through a straw that goes through his/her mascot head? Answer: Oski, from the Cal Bears. Yes, it is Berkeley so fans don't even think twice of a mascot chugging a beer through a straw. Just happens at the bar all the time. The thing is, the actual act of the chugging hadn't been seen by the Internet - until last night. JUMP!
Ever wanted to drink a glass of spilled milk served three feet from it intended target? Ever wanted to buy a Packers themed couch? Want to win $3,700 betting on the Browns this season? Want to see a Flyers fan in her team bikini? We have you covered in today's edition of Sports Madness. It's time for your daily roundup of sports photos that don't become stories on BC. JUMP!
We had to wait until week three of the preseason for a brutal, cringe-worthy injury, but thanks to Marc Mariani we now have one. Mariani, a third year pro out of Montana, was returning a kick in last nights game against the Cardinals when his leg got tangled up on his way to the ground. The end result was something grizzly, something that would cause more pain than I hope to endure in a lifetime. JUMP!
Nothing scares the sh*t out of Tennessee Titans fan like the name Ryan Mallett as their starting quarterback. Good joke, MNF graphics bro. (via @StephenJones11) What did we learn about the Arizona Cardinals? They have three backup QBs. Kevin Kolb threw two picksand John Skelton had one - full game stats. As for trade news, Jim Irsay says a serious vet/starter could be coming to Colts. So he means MJD, right? Let's get rolling!
Relax, the UCF administration isn't behind this video and the two Boob McGees frolicking in the fountain on the campus. This is from the bros at Axis Magazine, the notorious group who keeps shooting hot chicks in various forms of undress - on campus. The girls are waitresses at Tilted Kilt, which is known as the greatest recruiting restaurant in college football. At work and can't watch video? We have you covered. JUMP!
Minor league football player John Taylor is nicknamed the house...and for good reason. This big fella comes in at 6'11" weighing a whopping 500 pounds. The Central Penn Piranha just became the most well known team in the history of the Gridiron Developmental Football League. Anytime you trot a guy out who outweighs the heaviest NFL player in history...by 90 pounds...you'll open some eyes. JUMP!
We've been waiting for the post-Erin Andrews era of college football sideline reporting and it's officially here. Women who went to school to become the next Pageviews, get their shot this fall as Andrews moves to the Fox studio and Samantha Steele gets the Thursday night assignment. Jenn Brown, now the senior sideline reporter, leaves Thursdays for Saturday afternoons. As for Fox, they're unleashing rookie Julie Alexandria on Saturday nights. JUMP!
Do you obsess over your NFL team? Have you ever lost season tickets in a divorce settlement? Have you added a room onto your house for memorabilia? Does your NFL man cave deserve the admiration of the Internet? We want to hear your story, see your photos and show BC readers that you have NFL superfan tendencies. Tell us stories about the time you threw a keg through a Raiders fan's car window. Better yet, show us the photos. JUMP!
Via @si_vault. As for modern NFL news this morning, Mike Florio says a source told him that league officials offered Jonathan Vilma an eight-game reduction to his 2012 ban. Vilma declined. In MLB news, Joe Girardi told a heckler to "shut up" last night in Chicago as he tried to give a post-game interview in the tunnel. Of course Girardi also told a fat blob security guard lounging on a golf cart to "do something." Let's get rolling!
Good job, Internet. Never did we think we'd be able to pick up Keyshawn Johnson's old couch and ottoman for only $500. Some guy named 'Gene' recently posted the furniture on Craigslist. After holding back our gut instinct of just pulling the trigger and buying it, we decided to give Gene a call and hear the story behind this priceless furniture. JUMP!
A water balloon fight at football practice?! As if things weren't loose enough at a Division II football program, coach Garin Huggins of Emporia State University took things to the next level this week. He thought the grind was wearing on his team so he organized a sneak water balloon attack. The coach is 14-29 since 2007, hence the need to have fun before getting their heads pounded by Fort Hays State. JUMP!
The Internet is choking on itself this afternoon thanks to a photo tweeted to Darren Rovell, which was then tweeted by Rovell last night, which was then seen by dozens of bloggers desperate for someone to help them with story ideas. BOOM! Now we have a mainstream media firestorm over Jonathan Vilma's restaurant Brother Jimmy's BBQ (he's a partner) running a Roger Goodell sign on its front door. FIRESTORM! JUMP!
Look, at this point, if some NFL rookie doesn't have a Ms. Pac-Man logo in his head at Titans camp by tomorrow morning, it will be a failed camp for the veterans. Sure, punter Brett Kern and his cohorts have come up with some great designs. Of course we're impressed by a guy sporting a pair of sunglasses in his hair. Yes, a falcon claw coming out of a dude's widow's peak is hilarious. You mean nobody can shave an Apple logo into a guy's head? JUMP!
Will you ever get sick of babes rocking football gear? No, neither will we. Victoria’s Secret models Elsa Hosk,...
Wait, did you hear that Phyllis Lapin from The Office was a St. Louis Cardinals cheerleader back in the 1970s? Yes, that was news in 2011, but Yahoo! entertainment writers brought back that news this week. Did you know Teri Hatcher was a NFL cheerleader? Did you know the L.A. Rams cheerleaders were in an episode of CHiPs where they're van was pulled over by Ponch & John? Shall we take a look at NFL cheerleaders who went on to TV success? JUMP!
Here's an Oregon cheerleader you need to know in 2012: Bridget Case. A Ducks cheerleader in the class of 2014, Case steps up in the long tradition of UO ladies with aspirations of becoming the next Erin Andrews (Stephanie Essin; Katelyn Johnson; Amanda Pflugrad) . Case is a sports journalism major, which means sideline reporting. Oregon just keeps delivering hot chicks to keep Brent Musburger entertained. JUMP!
What did homeboys have to say about the Michael Vick rib injury? Plenty. Nothing gets a black dude in the 'hood blasting NSFW tweets like a homeboy going down to a preseason shot. Seriously, is there any shot of this guy making it through a full NFL season ever again? Black guys on Twitter sure don't think so, and one guy even compared what Vick is going through to slavery!JUMP!
I want this guy's MySpace account and I wanted it 20 minutes ago. You don't go on Antiques Roadshow rocking a Donovan McNabb Redskins jersey, jorts, pulled up white socks and K-Mart kicks and get away with it. Are those velcros? Don't even tell me those are velcros. I'll smack your ass back to 1983 if those are velcros. (How much you think that vase is worth?) JUMP!
Congrats to @casiemaries for catching this. Just when you figured ESPN's college football analysts hadn't spent enough time breaking down the 2012 season, this graphic pops up. In MNF news, Michael Vick took a shot from Patriots linebacker Jermaine Cunningham and went to the locker room for X-rays on his ribs. You might remember Aug. 1 when we told you that Donovan McNabb wasn't busy and could use a team. Just saying. Let's get rolling!
