I would be making out like a bandit too if I were Mark Richt. Potentially they might not face a top 25 team all season despite playing in the SEC. You can go ahead and pencil in UGA for the SEC Championship on Dec 1st. The SEC East should be cake next year especially when you don't have to play LSU, Bama, and Arkansas for a 2nd straight year. As Richt is displaying good things happen to good people.

Former starting Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist has decided to spend his fifth year in college with his old college coach in Kansas. Today via Twitter Crist announced he would be joining new head coach Charlie Weis in Lawrence...
@dcrist10: "After a long & difficult decision making process, I'm incredibly excited to join the Kansas football team. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!"
Crist will immediately compete for the starting position. Rumor is that BYU transfer and former ND target QB Jake Heaps is also transferring to Kansas where he would have to sit out a year. Weis never had a problem getting the top ranked QBs while at Notre Dame so this should come as little surprise. Crist will have one year to make or break a college career that never quite lived up to expectations due to two major knee injuries.
Prediction: Crist will thrive in Lawrence...Kansas will win 5-7 games...Crist will get drafted late in the 2013 NFL Draft.

So the LA Clippers got Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups? How is that even possible? The Clippers are going to be America's Team this season with all the alley-oops and fastbreak plays making the SportsCenter highlight reels.
Here is a nice little underhand scoop from Paul to DeAndre Jordan...

I always save the emails I get from fans of programs who get mad at me for calling Miami the Convicts and FSU the Criminoles because they always insist their programs aren't like that anymore. The Nevin Shapiro case proved that Miami still had a Convict within the program and this week the Seminoles proved they still have enough Criminoles on their team to warrant the label. From the BigLead...
Arrington Jenkins: Freshman linebacker who is redshirt was arrested over the weekend for his alleged part in a “vehicular theft.”
Avis Commack: Junior defensive back who played in every game this year was arrested for an alleged theft of an Ipad from the FSU computer lab. A female student said her backpack with Ipad was lifted from the computer lab; Commack said he “found” the ipad. It’s unclear whether or not he’ll play in the bowl game.
Yep. Nothing to see here. FSU clearly runs a clean program with no shady characters on their team. I should just take down these Criminoles shirts immediately.

Actor Jason Sudeikis pretty much "nailed" (pun intended) the Jesus performance. I'm a little disappointed in the Tebow performance. It could have used more flair. All in all not a bad skit. Not great by any means. I kind of laughed.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports is reporting that soon to be 32 year old slugger Albert Pujols has agreed to a 10 year deal for between $250 million to $260 with the Los Angeles Angels.
Holy fucking shit!
This is the second biggest contract in MLB history just behind A-Rod's $275 million with the Yankees in 2008. And just like A-Rod's contract I don't think Pujols will live up to it because of his age.
I don't feel bad for the St. Louis Cardinals because honestly they got the 11 best years of Pujols career (maybe the 11 best years of any player in MLB history) with two World Series titles. He isn't going to get better with age and be happy Cardinals fans because you would have been screwed with an albatross contract like Pujols hanging over the arch for the next decade. Now you just have to deal with Matt Holliday's overbloated contract.
I guess the Angels are going for it all. Rumor is they are close to signing lefty CJ Wilson to be their #2 starter for over $100 million also. In a shitty economy it still baffles me these teams can afford these contracts. Attendance was down everywhere in MLB parks. Less people are watching. I've been a diehard baseball fan since I was born and even now I can fully admit that baseball pales in comparison to interest to College Football and the NFL. It's a great move for Pujols since he can DH in 2-3 years when his legs will be fucked and the years of performance enhancing drugs catch up with him.
So now if you are the Cardinals you make a call to Prince Fielder's agent. The big guy would be a St. Louis hero just because he decided to come to the Cardinals when Pujols would rather leave because the money was greener on the West Coast.

I'm sorry that I haven't been paying much attention to this whole "Bernie Fine molesting ballboys at Syracuse" story because frankly I got so burned out on the Penn State shitstorm. Now it looks like not only did Bernie and his batshit crazy wife have sex with this ballboy but ESPN had proof of it back in 2003 with a recording. And ESPN did nothing with it? Holy shit!
ESPN and Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim have a whole lot of explaining to do. Boeheim came out last week and flat out said the ballboys were lying and trying to get money because of the Sandusky story in Penn State. Boeheim was clearly trying to support his friend who has been an assistant coach for more than 30 years at Syracuse but in the process he made himself look like a complete asshole. And why the fuck wouldn't ESPN talk to Boeheim about the allegations that are proven true on the tape when it surfaced 8 years ago? If anything ESPN should have gone to the cops with the tape but from my understanding they just sat on it because they wanted the exclusive story.
Is the world going crazy or am I just a drunk idiot who can't figure this shit out? All I know is that I'm 100% positive if this shit happened around me I don't care who it is I'm reporting it to the police to at least investigate.

We already knew the Victoria Secret Fashion Shows were extremely overrated but they pretty much dropkicked America in the balls last night by not including SportsCrack favorites Brooklyn Decker and Kate Upton. That's just a pure UnAmerican move. Upton and Decker are without a question the hottest "American" models and instead you throw a bunch of Amazonian stick figures up there. It's insulting. And yeah I know Decker and Upton are Swimsuit Models but I don't give a shit. You get them in your show. This isn't the minor leagues here. The Victoria Secret Show is suppose to be the Bigs and yet they went little. Total socialist move right there.

Arkansas +13 over LSU
Bama -21 over Auburn
Miss St -17 over Ole Miss
Michigan -7.5 over Ohio State
A&M -8 over Texas
Vinnie is taking HOKEAMANIA over the Buckeyes? Wow I'm not sure if I have the balls to make that pick. I think Bill Clinton was still in office the last time the Wolverines beat the Buckeyes. Actually the only game I like to play here is the Bama -21 over Auburn. Auburn has looked horrible for over a month. Bama wants to send a message that they deserve to be in the BCS National Title game even without winning the SEC. They will crush Auburn this week. I'm thinking by a score of 35-7 or 42-7. They will cover the 21 though.

It's being reported that Urban Meyer has agreed to be the next head coach for the Ohio State Buckeyes. It will be made official next Monday, two days after Ohio State finishes the regular season with rival Michigan.
Ohio State will probably take their probation by agreeing not to go to a bowl game this season. Meyer will come in and start recruiting immediately and has already come to agreement with some assistant coaches to join him in Columbus. Rumor is that current head coach Luke Fickell will be made defensive coordinator under Meyer. Next Tuesday the Buckeyes will introduce Urban to the students at halftime of the Buckeyes-Duke basketball game.
I'm still hearing 5-year deal for $30-35 million. Most of us knew this was bound to happen when Jim Tressel was forced to leave but still the Buckeyes got the perfect coach in Urban Meyer especially considering the uneasy task of skirting NCAA sanctions.
Now the question is what kind of shirt can we make for the new "Urban Legend" in Columbus?

Ever since I can remember Stanford has always worn cardinal red and white. This week however they will be sporting the new Nike Pro Combat Uniforms with red and black. It basically looks like a steady mixture of Ohio State's and Georgia's Power Rangers uniform they wore vs Boise State concocted by the brass of Nike. For one game I have no problem with it and I'm sure Andrew Luck and his teammates will have fun with them. The uniforms are kind of boring looking but the helmet I think is very cool. If anything maybe the black helmets will make Stanford look faster when Michael Floyd is running past them.

Ever since Jim Tressel was forced out of Columbus Buckeye Nation has salivated over the thought of native son Urban Meyer coming back to the scarlet and gray and taking over a program that was one of his dream jobs. It appears both the Buckeye Nation and Urban will be making the dream a reality very soon.
Rumors are floating around that Ohio State has offered Urban a seven year deal for $35 million to return to the sidelines after a one year hiatus. Urban has the coaching bug and despite taking a year off to be with his family after riding an emotional and physical roller coaster down in Gainesville he appears by all accounts ready to jump back into head coaching 24/7.
This shouldn't come as a big shock. The Urban to Ohio State rumors were strong even when Jim Tressel was winning Big Ten championships in his sweatervest. What is kind of confusing is Urban going into a situation where the Buckeyes might be on sanctions due to the entire tattoo fiasco which has not been settled by the NCAA. It cost Tressel his job and made Terrelle Pryor leave early for the NFL and as far as we know the Committee on Infractions has not ruled on Ohio State yet. Yes the Buckeyes have suspended players and taken away some scholarships but the NCAA has still not ruled if that will be enough in their eyes.
My opinion is the Buckeyes will get a one year postseason ban. They should take it this year. Don't delay it because this season is honestly a wash. Urban Meyer will be announced as the next head coach within the next couple of weeks. Again this is just my opinion and I do not have any inside sources. I also think Meyer will do extremely well in Columbus. He can recruit with the best of them and he should be able to get the top kids from the Midwest while also going to the South and California to recruit. With Braxton Miller at QB he should fit in perfectly in Urban's spread attack.
Do I think Urban will win right away? Yes.
Do I think Urban will get them to a National Championship right away? No.
But the Buckeyes will be back in the top 5 programs with Urban on the sidelines. There is no Urban myth to it. It's the truth.

"Now listen, you're going to be put into a foster home so I need to know, would you like to go to Neverland Ranch, the Catholic church, or Penn State University?"
"Now listen, you can't just turn all your frustrations on a little kid who can't defend himself! What do you think this is, the shower room at Penn State?"

No complaints here. I've always enjoyed the cartoon bird on the hats from the late 60's to late 80's and I'm glad they are bringing it back. Now if only they could bring back the feeling of 3 World Series Championships to Baltimore then I will really get excited. But overall a great look for the team. Hopefully the next press release coming from the Warehouse is Peter Angelos selling the team to somebody who actually cares about building a winner.

I saw at least 7 missed tackles. Holy Hogs indeed. I'm always torn on these kind of plays. Yes it was a great return by Joe Adams. No doubt about that. But what the hell was up with the tackling? We aren't talking about Devin Hester returning here. It's some college kid named Adams. It's gotta be these new uniforms that have Crisco baked into them. I can smell the bacon from here.
Fun fact: Tennessee is now 0-6 in SEC play with their closest defeat of 8 points to Georgia way back in early October. They have Vandy at home this week and are the underdogs. UNDERDOGS to fucking Vandy at home! Hilarious.
It's actually humorous to see how bad Tennessee and Florida are coached these days. They use to have great coaching with incredible talent. Now with the likes of Dooley, Muschamp, and Weis running the shows they are a complete disaster. There is no good reason for both of those programs to be this bad. Their offenses are horrifying to say the least. Both need coaching changes. I've heard JoePa is available.

Ok I've taken a couple of deep shallow breaths so I don't hyperventilate over here. Adidas and Notre Dame made a limited edition of 11 Notre Dame treasure chests that include the Notre Dame helmet, jersey, and gloves they will be wearing this week vs. Maryland in the Shamrock Series and somehow I didn't receive mine in the mail. It must have been a honest mistake. Because I know Adidas wouldn't screw up with SportsCrack and the world's biggest Notre Dame fan over here by not including one of those awesome chests that also include a gold plated Ipod with headphones and actual gold dust from the Dome and mistakenly send it to Paul Lukas and Darren Rovell and not me. It's okay. I forgive you as long as I get mine before Christmas. Lukas and Rovell don't even like Notre Dame. Sure they may have more followers and thus you might get more exposure but they are not nearly as good looking as me and you know the true Notre Dame fans who will eat that shit up come to SportsCrack. I'm not mad though because I know mine is coming. Don't make me go to the dark side and start sporting Penn State Nike jerseys over here. You got my address. I still endorse K Swiss shoes to everybody and I got those like two years ago. Nobody even knew what K Swiss was before I started pimping them out. The rule of thumb is if you want to make it big you got to come to SportsCrack. Now make it happen. Plus I've been to Germany like 4 times. I practically carried your country's GDP on my back with all the beer and sausages I ate.

ESPN's Mark May hits the nail on the head right here. Everybody at Penn State needs to be fired. After this season is over they need to bring in a whole new regime. No leftovers. If Penn State is going to move on they need to erase the past and anybody who might have known about the horrible shit that was going on with Jerry Sandusky but didn't want to tell because of fear of ruining the program. The program is ruined. It's not "tarnished" or "tainted" or even on sanctions. It's a horrific mess because of what happened inside those same showers and locker rooms that the players and coaches use every day. It's time to start a new Penn State. One with passion and compassion for fellow human beings. And like Mark May said everyone in that program is complicit because most of them were there for decades not years and had to have known or had some inclination of what Sandusky did.

Not exactly official yet but I've been told the nation's #1 prep quarterback Gunner Kiel has decided to attend Notre Dame and early enroll this January. It was just a few weeks ago that Kiel was committed to Indiana but then decided to decommit and attend the Notre Dame-USC game along with 40 plus other top recruits.
For obvious reasons Kiel would be a tremendous coup for the Fighting Irish and head coach Brian Kelly. It's not too often you have a five star QB just fall into your laps so to speak but Kelly will definitely take it considering the amount of recruits Kiel could help bring in. The Irish are actively pursuing Nelson Agholor, a 6'2 180 lb speedy wideout, who is from Tampa, FL and is currently the #1 ranked athlete in the nation. Agholor visited Notre Dame in early October for the Air Force game and came away with the Irish on top of his list. Granted Notre Dame has been his only official visit so far with the Florida Gators being the main competition. Teaming up Kiel and Agholor in a class would be similar to what Notre Dame thought they were getting years ago when they paired Dayne Crist and Michael Floyd in the same class.
Another recruit that the Irish are pursuing actively is the #1 tailback in the nation in Keith Marshall. Marshall also officially visited with Kiel for the USC game and came away with the Irish neck-and-neck with his favorite school in Georgia. UGA has long been considered the leader for Marshall's services and the popular thinking was if Mark Richt stays in Athens then Marshall will be there next fall. The rumblings around Notre Dame is that Marshall is now leaning toward the Irish. I still have serious doubts he ends up anywhere else but UGA.
Still a long way till signing day in February so don't expect any early decisions from Agholor or Marshall but it should be a relief for Kelly to get Kiel (nephew of former ND QB Blair) signed and enrolled in early January so he can put his focus on the other recruits.
Here are some Youtube highlights of Gunner Kiel....

Seriously Penn State? You went on a riot last night because a 84 year old who shouldn't be coaching college football in the first place and who can barely put together a coherent sentence got fired because he failed to report a predator who was raping children in his own fucking locker room to the police. I thought I was an idiot when I was in college but these kids up in Penn State prove the paint chips on JoePa's statue needs another re coating with all the sucking up these students are giving to their false God.
Here is a classy move by the students chanting "FUCK THE TRUSTEES!" Yeah how dare they actually do the right thing for once.
Posted by Matt Fairchild (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 7:37 AM
This whole Jerry Sandusky pedophile case has been a stomach turner from the beginning and thankfully Penn State's board of trustees made the first right decision in this whole debacle by firing the president and head coach Joe Paterno last night. Unfortunately a guy like Sandusky doesn't get away with raping boys without some help. Whether it be the athletic director and Paterno covering up for him it's disgusting how HUMAN BEINGS can let a monster like Sandusky knowlingly roam their campus and using a youth charity on campus for Sandusky to have his "pick of the litter."
But just when you don't think it can't get any worse it just might. Sure Paterno is gone and Graham Spanier is no longer in charge at Penn State or the BCS for that matter but this pales in comparison with the latest rumor. Back in April Pittsburgh radio host Mark Madden wrote a story about Sandusky molesting boys which is baffling since just now it is becoming public. A lot of people didn't want to believe what Madden wrote back then but today he was asked on The Dennis and Callahan Show if this was basically the end of the story. It's not.
Here is the latest rumor which Madden says is being investigated:
"I can give you a rumor and I can give you something I think might happen," Madden told John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. "I hear there's a rumor that there will be a more shocking development from the Second Mile Foundation -- and hold on to your stomachs, boys, this is gross, I will use the only language I can -- that Jerry Sandusky and Second Mile were pimping out young boys to rich donors. That was being investigated by two prominent columnists even as I speak."
Madden also spoke more definitively to the cover-up efforts at the school and beyond that he expects will be made public soon.
"The other thing I think that may eventually become uncovered, and I talked about this in my original article back in April, is that I think they'll find out that Jerry Sandusky was told that he had to retire in exchange for a cover-up," Madden said. "If you look at the timeline, that makes perfect sense, doesn't it?
"My opinion is when Sandusky quit, everybody knew -- not just at Penn State," Madden added. "I think it was a very poorly kept secret about college football in general, and that is why he never coached in college football again and retired at the relatively young age of 55. [That's] young for a coach, certainly."
This is so much bigger than just Sandusky. Unfortunately I think we are going to find out this was a montrosity involving a lot of rich people who have a ton of influence and power around Penn State. It might be the reason why the district attorney Ray Gricar mysteriously disappeared 6 years ago before having a chance to expose the whole Sandusky scandal to the world. It's starting to make sense. Why would Penn State just now start to investigate kids getting raped when they knew over a decade ago? If Penn State ever wants to get back to where they were they need to clean house. Every fucking body who knew including the ginger grad assistant who witnessed one of the rapes but still has a job with Penn State. Blow it up. At this point football shouldn't even be a thought. The victims and their families deserve justice.

Someone must have asked him about suspensions for this week's game versus Auburn because Georgia head coach Mark Richt didn't enjoy it as you can tell. Things are getting testy for major college football head coaches these days. Not only do they have to win football games but they got to answer hard questions from the media like "why didn't you report a rape to the authorities?" or "have there been any suspensions this week?" It must be brutal to get paid millions to answer such mind boggling questions like those.

From @MicheleSteele comes Joe Paterno's official retirement announcement effective at the end of the season....
Paterno full statement: STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Nov. 9, 2011 -- I am absolutely devastated by
the developments in this case. I grieve for the children and their families,
and I pray for their comfort and relief.
I have come to work every day for the last 61 years with one clear goal in
mind: To serve the best interests of this university and the young men who have
been entrusted to my care. I have the same goal today.
That's why I have decided to announce my retirement effective at the end of
this season. At this moment the Board of Trustees should not spend a single
minute discussing my status. They have far more important matters to address. I
want to make this as easy for them as I possibly can.
This is a tragedy. It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit
of hindsight, I wish I had done more.
My goals now are to keep my commitments to my players and staff and finish the
season with dignity and determination. And then I will spend the rest of my
life doing everything I can to help this University.
So now the question remains: What NFL team will Joe Paterno coach next season? Oh wait nevermind. Dumb question. I meant to write who will coach Penn State next season? Yeah that's what I meant.
God this is sickening. Not because there are a bunch of d-bag college students who have no clue what they are doing but the fact that Joe Paterno is still a head coach. I mean could you understand one fucking word he said? All I heard was the "We...Are....Penn...State" chant at the end. I know it's one thing to be a diehard football fan and to put Joe Paterno on a pedestal for basically building the Penn State program but do people not realize that Paterno had the power to save kids from a predator and he basically did the bare minimum? Wake the fuck up! But be quiet you don't want to wake JoePa and ruin his "legacy."

The New York Times is reporting that Joe Paterno (who cancelled his press conference today) is out at Penn State and will begun an exit strategy for the once legendary football coach.
Hmm, an exit strategy eh? How about having each one of Jerry Sandusky's victims delivering a swift kick to JoePa's fat fucking nose and face as he leaves his office in disgust. It's basically being nice to a guy who protected a pedophile for so long and continued to let the piece of shit on campus up to last week while covering his ass.
Growing up I always thought of JoePa as a member of the mafia. He just seemed sleazy to me. But even the mafia has morals and they wouldn't let one of their own rape boys without having him 6 feet under a turnpike.
In conclusion: Mafia>JoePa's legacy

I know some people will make fun of Matt Millen because he cried on air but it's not right.

The boxing world lost one of the greats yesterday when Philly's own Smokin' Joe Frazier passed away after a short battle with liver cancer at the age of 67. Frazier was a true champion and was one of the few guys who would not back down from Muhammed Ali and in fact beat him in the Fight of the Century. He couldn't ever escape Ali's huge shadow despite going 41 rounds with him and never giving an inch to Ali including their last fight with the "Thrilla in Manila" that went 14 rounds. It's amazing how champions like Frazier who could fight his whole life for everything they got but yet can not beat a disease like cancer. The same with Steve Jobs who had all the money in the world but couldn't beat it. In conclusion cancer sucks. All of it. Hopefully someday it goes down for the count for good.

Yesterday Notre Dame introduced their 4th helmet of the 2011 season with the new "Shamrock Series" helmet they will wear versus Maryland this Saturday. The shamrock is a little bit bigger than the ones they wore versus Michigan and the gold is the new one they introduced versus USC. Personally I think they look great. I've always wondered why they haven't switched up the helmets in the past and now it appears Notre Dame is getting with the times and introducing new "cool" helmets that will get people to notice them including recruits. I also like the facemasks. It's not the usual grey masks they've worn since forever but instead it's a dark green. Sharp looking helmet and I can't wait to see Louis Nix (pictured above) smashing Terps this Saturday with it on.

LostLettermen has this ABC's "Good Morning America" interview with child rapist Jerry Sandusky who will neither confirm nor deny he rapes boys in the Penn State locker room. What a swell guy too! If you are a Penn State supporter you have to love the fact Sandusky is smiling while sporting his Nittany Lion attire even though he has been banned from ever stepping foot on their campus.
If you haven't already go read the 23 page report from the Attorney General on what exactly Sandusky did and check it out before you want my opinion. But please read it after you have had your lunch because it is that disgusting.
There is nothing more morally reprehensible than a child getting raped. Sandusky apparently has had 8 victims come forward when there are probably dozens more. He founds ways to use his power as a defensive coordinator for Penn State under Joe Paterno to get access to "troubled" boys by founding a children's charity called Second Mile. He would then get the boys to come to his house and rape them. He would also rape them on campus in the Penn State locker room while taking showers with them. A graduate assistant who is now the quarterback coach for Penn State witnessed Sandusky sodomizing a young boy in the shower in 2002. Obviously distraught he notified his Dad and then Paterno the next day. Neither of these three men went to the police.
Again Paterno, the graduate assistant and the father of the graduate assistant all knew about Sandusky screwing a young boy in the anus in the Penn State showers with the graduate assistant witnessing it himself and yet no one thought to go to the police. That in itself is fucking deplorable. Paterno senile old ass instead notified athletic director Tim Curley (since fired) and Gary Schultz, the university's senior vice president for finance and business. None of them ever contacted the police to report the incident.
A janitor witnessed Sandusky pinning a boy against the shower stall and giving oral sex. Still no one notified police. In order for Penn State to move forward from this horrifying tale it needs to clean house. The President of the University is already voicing his support for Curley, Schultz and Paterno. He needs to be fired too.
Obviously what Sandusky did as a sexual predator is the worse of the crimes but the fact that none of these "authority" figures at Penn State who found out yet did nothing to report it to the police are equally pieces of shit in my book. JoePa should never coach a game again. He's already hiding behind his lawyer. Same with the others.
Fuck them. They should all be in the State Penn and not Happy Valley. If you are a Penn State fan I feel for you today. There is no way I could in good conscious ever support the university or wear clothing showing my support after reading about all of these men who knew of children getting raped by one of their own yet did nothing to stop it.

Before I dive into the whole "Penn State needs to fire everybody who knew about Jerry Sandusky and did nothing to report it" story I figured I would talk about something a little more upbeat in college football: coaches getting canned. Or as the headline says itself "Ole Miss busts a Nutt."
Ole Miss currently has a 12 game SEC losing streak. It's their worst streak in their horrible history. And now head coach Houston Nutt will be taking the fall. Ole Miss has a 3pm press conference scheduled today when they will announce they are busting a Nutt for shitty coaching.
Things started off well for Nutt in Oxford after leaving Arkansas. He led the Rebels to back-to-back 9 win seasons which ended in Cotton Bowl victories. But the last two seasons have been a disaster. Ole Miss now gets thrown around by teams like Vandy and in this current college football landscape where fans and alumni expect not only instant results but sustained success Nutt is clearly not holding up his end of the bargain.
So now the question is who will be the new coach? I'm sure the usual Urban Meyer, Jon Gruden, and others BS reports will come out. Ole Miss is not a premiere job. It never has been. Which probably means they will be looking to get a hot assistant like Alabama's Kirby Smart or Georgia's Todd Grantham who are familiar with the conference. I hear Joe Paterno will be available.

All you have to do is look into Herbie's eyes at the 10 second mark. Bam. He just shit himself. A modest 5.6 earthquake was reported in Stillwater, OK at the time when Herbie was reporting for ESPN from the Okie State-Kansas State game when you can see his eyes completely bug out while he tries to remain calm with Hershey squirts.
But Herbie the professional he is goes on to report while remaining calm, cool, and somewhat collected while not knowing what the hell just happened. Don't get me wrong I would have been screaming like a little girl with tears flowing pleading to call my wife and kid to Chris Fowler before the whole stadium collapsed. I've never experienced an earthquake so I can only imagine the fear. But now I know what it is like to see Herbie shit his pants. Another check on the bucket list.

Bama -5 over LSU
Stanford -21 over Oregon State
Northwestern +17 over Nebraska
Arkansas State -17 over Florida Atlantic
Vanderbilt +13 over Florida
Leave it to Vinnie to make an Andrew Luck neck beard joke, a weekend at Bernies joke, and a Humpty Humpty dance joke all roll into one hilarious group of picks for this week. I hope people realize that Les Miles isn't really an idiot who eats grass on gamedays. Miles is just playing everybody for the fool when they think he is just some dumb shit on the sidelines when in fact he is a defcom missile ready to blow up Nick Saban and the Tide this Saturday in Tuscaloosa. Trust me it's going to happen. LSU will win.
Why you ask? Because before the season I took LSU to win the SEC and so far they have played one of the toughest schedules in the nation and have destroyed everybody in their path. Everyfuckingbody. LSU isn't afraid of Bama and can anyone remember the last time LSU lost a night game? I think it's been like 500 years. Take LSU. Do it.

I think I may want to change my thinking about college football players getting paid. Well at least at Notre Dame.
Holy shit these guys at Notre Dame have the life! Video games, massage tables, ping pong, and food for days including victory crab legs. Yeah I can see why Notre Dame does so well in recruiting even when they aren't meeting expectations on the field. With tuition, room and board, free clothes, and all the state of the art facilities and athletic trainers available Notre Dame football players are getting at least $100,000 a year in free perks to play football in college.
If I'm Keith Marshall, Gunner Kiel, Shaq Thompson and Arik Armstead I've already made up my mind after visiting the "Gug" and seeing how well the players are treated and trained. If I'm not being blunt enough I'm basically shouting "GO TO ND WHERE YOU WILL GET A DEGREE AND LIVE LIKE KINGS FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS!" There is that good enough?

Good for UGA finally beating a shitty Florida Gaytors team but what the hell is up with all the dugan aka sausage aka cock swinging around? I've never been to Jacksonville for the game but I've heard nothing but crazy stories and good times and these come from Georgia fans who usually come home with a loss. All I see is a bunch of frat boys barely clothed jerking off on each other. I'm severely disappointed. At least up in Athens you can see plenty of girls. Isn't the whole point of college is to get laid and spread STD's? I felt like I was hanging out in Rehoboth Beach watching this shitfest.
But anyways congrats to Georgia for getting a much needed victory over their rival. Next time guys try to bring some females down with you on the trip. And why did I not see any of these Gaytors shirts in the crowd?

Goose and Maverick to the fucking tee. These twins even got Anthony Edwards Goose fading hair line and Tom Cruise Maverick ""I feel the need...The need for speed!" attitude. I think we found the parents of the year by the way. Just all around top notch game here.
You know you are getting old when college kids have no fucking clue who Goose and Maverick are. It kinda pisses me off when I have to explain the movie Top Gun. It should be required viewing in elementary school.

If you needed further proof that the European hockey players are soft all you have to do is take a look at this celebration by Henrik Eriksson in Sweden. Not only does Eriksson have the cajones to hug Alen Bibic right in front of the goalie he just scored on but then Bibic gives a half ass punch. I mean come on Bibic. Deck his ass. Your lucky he didn't kiss you after that pansy ass punch.

When Vinnie Verno first graced us with his all knowing presence this year I thought he was hilarious but I had fears he would be a flash in a pan. I couldn't see his humor keeping up every week with the grind that is the football season. But I was wrong. Dead wrong. And like the show Workaholics Vinnie gets better with age. Every week he brings a new angle. This week it was Halloween. He farts. He laughs hysterically. He brings in clips of labradors fucking old ladies. Vinnie is the man.

As some of you may know I was up at Notre Dame last week to watch what was once a great rivalry versus USC turn into yet another major disappointment for the Fighting Irish. Actually I'll just call them ND because right now they don't deserve the "Fighting Irish" nickname.
To say I was disgusted by their performance would be an understatement. To say I was shocked by the outcome would by a total misnomer. Notre Dame hasn't been Notre Dame for a long time. They've gone through 3 coaches (well 4 if you count George O'Leary) since Lou Holtz was forced out and haven't been a National Championship contender since 1993. In fact they have only finished in the top 25 5 times since that season. They have yet to win a BCS game and the 3 years they made it they got relatively blown out. And yet almost every year you can look at their schedule and their talent (which is debatable) and say they should be a top 15-20 every season. But the sad part is they get crushed by teams like Navy and Stanford who hold the same exact academic rigors to get in and stay in school but have a sliver of the overall talent that permeates the Notre Dame roster.
So why does Notre Dame continue to lose when they have more talent, better facilities, more exposure, and greater fan support than those other schools? The common denominator for most fans is the head coach. Or the defensive coordinator. Or the athletic director. But hardly anyone wants to say the players. And you know what they are the most accountable for their 4-3 record right now.
I know I'm probably wrong but the only person I sense actually gives a shit about winning on Notre Dame is the head coach Brian Kelly and the other coaches. They are the ones screaming until their faces turn Cherry Coke red and trying to get their players to focus and play with a purpose. The problem is the players treat the game like they have already lost. They don't come out wanting to punish the other guy lining up opposite in the disgusting cardinal and gold. At some point playing at Notre Dame has become a sense of entitlement. Sure you have occasional guys like Brady Quinn, Trevor Laws and others who will go above and beyond to make themselves the absolute best they can be but I don't sense it with most of this team.
There is no reason Notre Dame should have lost to South Florida and Michigan to open the season. They should have crushed both of them and if it weren't for the lack of details (turnovers and accountabiiity) and leadership they would have won by 3 TD's minimum in those games. Like Aaron Taylor pointed out the senior leadership is nonexistent. The seniors should he held accountable for the 4-3 record and not Kelly. They were the #1 class coming out of high school. Not Stanford. Not LSU. Not even the mighty Trojans. Notre Dame has the #1 senior class according to the recruiting pundits at the time and yet they got two shitty bowl wins and no top 25 finishes. It's pathetic. Kelly just didn't come to Notre Dame and forget how to coach after being a perennial head coach winner for the past 20 years.
At some point players like Michael Floyd, Harrison Smith, Trevor Robinson, Ethan Johnson, Gary Gray and etc. need to step up and say we are not going down like bitches. We are not going to fumble the ball at the 1 yard line or go for the pump fake for the millionth time. It's all on the players now. And if they don't want to step up and show a little pride and fight for everything they get then they don't need to play.
For me personally I will always love Notre Dame. I grew up with it. I love what Notre Dame stands for along with the traditions and the fact that they graduate players. But at some point Notre Dame has to stop being the nice guy who accepts he won't fuck the prom queen and instead go out and nail every single prom queen in his county. In other words Notre Dame has to stop being a bunch of pussies who hold hands and sing the other teams fight song/alma mater and takes chop blocks and start fighting for the right to party after a victory. Notre Dame has to stop being the punchline to every college football joke and instead deliver every single KO punch come fall Saturday.
Now go out there and kick the living shit out of Navy.
Every single Notre Dame fan

Benjy Bronk from the Howard Stern Show managed to get another laugh out of me with his ridiculous antics in front of a CNN reporter yesterday. Like a true Yankees fan he just doesn't know when to shut his mouth. You may remember the Howard Stern lead writer upstaging Anthony Weiner during his resignation with screams of "Bye Bye Pervert!"
By the way do people still pay to listen to Howard Stern talk on the radio? It just seems odd to pay for something that should be free. It's on par with paying for ketchup packets.

If you ever had questions about how close of a clubhouse the Denver Broncos had then I think this kiss sealed it for most of you. I'm not about to judge but I've been playing sports all my life and I can't remember one time when I wanted to make out with one of my male "teammates" after a "come from behind" win. Now if you want to talk about a loss then that is completely different.
You are totally vulnerable and it's not gay at all.
Guys where are you going?

Notre Dame introduced new helmets yesterday with a new "Gold Standard" that has a reflective gold that is closer to the color of the famous Golden Dome. As you can see in the picture above the new helmet on the left looks much better than the old ones on the right which were more mustard color. Unfortunately with the new helmets the tradition of the student managers spraying the helmets before every game is no longer needed. Oh well. These helmets are absolutely incredible looking and should look stand out "Under the Lights" when Notre Dame comes out of the tunnel Saturday night to play USC.
Now if Notre Dame can just get that jumbotron with Rockne Vision installed they will make what is already a perfect gameday atmosphere even better.

Hey the Pastor's wife is going for the money so cum sounds like the perfect answer. You can't tell me it's not up in the top 7 things you put in your mouth but don't swallow. Come on Family Feud! By the way I shared a craps table once with Steve Harvey and his "entourage" at the Bellagio in Vegas. It wasn't a high rollers table or anything but you should have seen the way he was dressed and the way he acted. He literally was dressed like a pimp (top hat and shit you not he was in full suit and had a cane) and granted he's not a huge celebrity or anything but he would not acknowledge anybody else at the craps table. He had that "I'm better than you so I'm not going to talk to you" attitude. Essentially it will be the same attitude I'll be sporting this week up at Notre Dame whenever I run into a USC fan. Because seriously fuck those peasants.

That boy must drink some high quality H2O. I don't know who I feel worse for on the Mississippi State team. The left tackle who got crossed up and never had a chance to lay a hand on Clowney? Or what about the runningback who tries to step up and block the manchild only to get blown up? Also an argument could be made for the quarterback who gets stripped. Clowney has to be the freshman defensive player of the year.
Offensively there is no question who the best freshman is. He too plays in the Palmetto State. Sammy Watkins of Clemson only put up about 350 total yards against Maryland Saturday night. Watkins is scary good.

I got no pony in this fight but doesn't Detroit Lion's head coach Jim Schwartz look like a total dipshit trying to track down 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh and fight him? I mean come on Schwartz...who you fooling? You are not going to fight Harbaugh. Listen I'm not the biggest fan of Harbaugh since his Stanford team beat Notre Dame the past two seasons but the guy has passion and when you go in for a handshake after an emotional, hard fought win wouldn't you expect a hard handshake with a pat to the back? It just comes with the territory. The Detroit Lions are finally moving in the right direction with a team that is loaded with Megatron and House Of Spears dominating but now I'm afraid you got an idiot head coach who could ruin it all. Schwartz you are the coach. Not the player. Know your role boy.

Alabama -25 over Ole Miss - The Old Elephant Crap Game of the Year
Oklahoma State -7.5 over Texas - The Longhorns Suck Game of the Year
Hawaii -6.5 over San Jose State - The Hawaiian Massacre Part 3 Game of the Year
Toledo -7 over Bowling Green - The Life Savings Game of the Year
Utah State -3.5 over Fresno - The NBA Lockout Schmock Out Game of the Year
Vinnie has 5 blood baths with 5 massacres that will occupy Las Vegas with these picks. Bama and Okie State should shit all over their conference opponents this week. At this point the best teams have to run up the scores to get the voters attention. I've already lost money on Hawaii and Toledo so I'm not touching that shit with Ashton Kutcher's rawdogging cock. The final pick sounds right. Utah State is good and Fresno is fucking terrible. It won't save the NBA but honestly who gives a shit about the NBA?

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to take a 175 mph squash ball to the back? This bloke did
Cameron Pilley is the current world record holder for fastest squash ball hit at 175 mph according to his YouTube account. After watching his brother take one straight to the back who am I to argue with speed? Literally there is a chunk of his back dented in from impact. I imagine this is what it felt like to porn actresses back in the day who had the privilege to work with John Holmes. Those Aussies are a lot tougher than they appear. Crazier too.

Yeah definitely one of those flicks you have to see on the big screen. I'm just going to go ahead and put this out there: The Avengers will smash box office records. Even a semi functional retard like myself can see that. It's like the first time I saw Andrew Luck play against Notre Dame in person or Darren McFadden tote the rock vs Georgia. You just know when you are watching greatness. The Avengers trailer oozes it.

I can't wait till Notre Dame sends USC back into the dark ages in 11 days. It's going to be glorious to see the men of Troy cave under their bitch of a coach in Lane Kiffin. Since Kiffin has arrived I'm pretty much positive he's infected the whole program with AIDS. Nobody in their right mind wants to touch them after losing 30 scholarships and a postseason ban of 2 years because of their AIDS. USC is just in a sad, sad state of mind right now. It's time for Brian Kelly and the rest of the Fighting Irish football team to kill them off and give them mercy. RIP USC. Or shall I say FUSC?
