Vols, Cordarrelle Patterson Drench Wolfpack

Atlanta Tonight Derek Dooley debuted a new outfit, a massive white smock that seemed designed, if necessary, to stamp out any flames emerging from his hot seat. That or to allow him to eschew halftime talks in favor of expressionist paintings. He also wore boat shoes, which even when Dooley caught his feet in the… Read more »

Blown Pass Interference Call Mars End of Vandy South Carolina

Nashville: Every time I see SEC commissioner Mike Slive at big games, he tells me the same thing, he’s not rooting for either team, he’s just rooting for the officials. On Thursday night en route to a South Carolina 17-13 victory, Slive’s team lost. SEC officials missed a crucial and clear pass interference call that… Read more »

Mizzou Gets On Awkward Fan Scoreboard With Music Video

So far Missouri fans have dodged most of the awkward fan photo collections. Sure, we had to use this awesome guy as the graphic for this video. But boy does Mizzou do videos. And badly. Although, to be fair, the idea of putting girls in a boat in a cornfield was kind of brilliant. And 1960’s… Read more »

Texas Has SEC Envy

Two days before Texas A&M kicks off the 2012 campaign and officially becomes a football member of the SEC, it’s clear that the SEC is already having a substantial impact for Aggie athletics.

The Secret Weapon: Pablo Sanchez

Written by Jackson Martin So The Harvard College Sports Analysis Collective is at it again, trying to destroy my entire childhood. You might remember them as the guys who did an incredible job of compiling the box score from Space Jam (my favorite movie of all time) or as the college blog that is way smarter than just about… Read more »

All That and a Bag of Mail: Vandy QB Cheerleader Edition

It’s hard not to like Vandy quarterback Jordan Rodgers. Last month I noticed his Twitter picture and had some fun with it as an awkward quarterback photo. In a first in the awkward photo oeuvre, Rodgers retweeted the article to his followers. That’s probably what I would do as well. And it’s what a lot of you with better senses of humor… Read more »

Da’Rick Is Da’Gone

This morning Tennessee announced that the top returning wide receiver in the SEC, Da’Rick Rogers, was suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

Mizzou and the SEC Will Love Each Other

Written by Michael Urban If Mizzou fans are honest, they will tell you that joining the SEC is a little like Andre Iguodala joining the Olympic basketball team. It’s not that Mizzou isn’t worthy of being in the nation’s most elite conference, but the Tigers’ pedigree isn’t exactly of the same lineage as the SEC’s… Read more »

Loving football doesn’t always begin with playing catch

Written by: Craig Hayes I grew up in a small town called Point Lookout on the south shore of Long Island that was just built for summer: the beach on one side of town, the bay on the other, with a beautiful playground and set of ballfields on the side. Days were filled with swimming, body… Read more »
