That does it for me. Manti Te'o has my Heisman vote. Granted I don't have a vote and the Heisman Trust people object to me even mentioning their award. But fuck them. Te'o for Heisman!

Do I agree that Northern Illinois should be in a BCS Bowl over teams like Oklahoma, Georgia, Clemson, South Carolina, and LSU? No. Those teams are clearly better than Northern Illinois. But I don't want to hear those teams fans bitch about going to a lesser bowl because at the end of the day you have nobody to blame but yourselves. If you win your conference or only lose one game all season then you make it. You didn't. So don't be mad at Northern Illinois. Be mad at your team for not finishing their business.
By the way this is yet another reason why I love college football. The reaction by Northern Illinois is straight joy. Gotta love the passion.

12-0. #1 in the nation in both graduation rates and on the football field. Notre Dame is the pinnacle of everything that is right with college football. An elite academic institution that has proven you can win on and off the field by playing the right way and not cutting corners.

The Aggies, a middle of the road Big 12 team the past 15 years, just wanted to thank Bama for their warm welcome to the mighty SEC Conference. Manziel sends his love for the gracious hospitality.

Brittney Palmer is an UFC Octagon Girl which means she "entertains" the crowd between rounds of guys fighting each other in skin tight shorts which isn't gay at all by the way. Essentially she holds a sign up saying what round it is. That takes talent people. And as you can see she has plenty of it.

Louis Nix is a 340 lb starting nose guard for the undefeated Notre Dame Fighting Irish and has a personality and sense of humor almost as big as his bear claws for hands. But don't call him "fat."
"One guy at Oklahoma called me fat and he was fat himself," Nix said.
"I didn't like that. In my mind we should stick together. We're both big guys, and you want to call me fat? I didn't like that."

Down 20-6 in the fourth quarter to an unranked Pitt team, Notre Dame freshman QB Everett Golson pulled the improbable and led the Fighting Irish to a 29-26 triple overtime victory to keep ND undefeated.
With the close win ND dropped to 4th in the BCS standings with Oregon moving up to 3rd after a win at USC. #1 remains the same with Alabama pulling off another improbable win on the road at Death Valley with a last minute win after some questionable calls by LSU head coach Les Miles. KState remains at #2 with another decisive victory over Okie State. The game did have some consequences though with Heisman frontrunner Collin Klein going down with a concussion. Will he play this week vs TCU? That remains to be seen.
With only a month left to go we have 4 undefeated major power teams who could all make an argument for being in the BCS Title game. Two would be left out and would likely play each other in the Rose Bowl. If that is the case we might be looking at our first split National Title since 2003.

It's gotta be hard to vote for a guy who gets engaged to a girl before even delivering a first kiss right? I don't even understand it. KState QB Collin Klein should be running mad game all around Manhattan while spraying his purple rain on coeds yet here he is fucking married. Stupid. What a waste of talent. I'm not a very religious person but I'm pretty sure God gave you the bat and two balls so you could fucking use it and not hide in your locker while you heard "voices" in your head telling you to marry this person. That's not the Lord buddy. It's called your nuts. I'm not saying he should go all Travis Henry and start impregnating all of North America but you should at least be able to enjoy your success. God didn't give you a #1 Heisman leader campaign to piss it away by being a pussy. But hey, to each their own Tebow Jr. I guess his teammates get to enjoy themselves with all the lonely leftovers because Klein is too scared to kiss a girl in fear of God throwing down a thunderbolt on his pansy ass.Klein's faith is out front, along with his chin that has led the way during 492 career runs. In a Kansas State-produced story that appeared in a game program, Klein said he was told by the Lord he would marry K-State women's basketball player Shalin Spani. The daughter of former KSU football great Gary Spani said she heard "a voice in my head" independently that told her she would marry Klein.They became engaged before they formally had a first date. That first kiss came on the altar July 21, fulfilling a promise Klein made to himself at age 14. His first kiss would not come until then."Yes," Spani was quoted saying about their courtship, "it's unusual."
I can't vote for Klein anymore for the Heisman. Football is a man sport. Act like one kid.
Granted I don't have a vote but whatever. Grow some balls.

Tim Tebow is a very successful, good looking backup quarterback virgin who has had thousands of girls throw themselves at him but none have been successful according to Tebow himself. Now apparently he is dating an actress named Camilla Belle who has been previously linked to a tennis player and one of the Jonas brothers. I'm sorry but I'm not buying it. This Belle girl is a classic beard for Tebow. Just come out of that cavern of a closet you hide in with excuses like Christianity and saving yourself for the right girl Tebow. You would inspire millions. Stop hiding. We can all see it now.
By the way I'm talking for every straight and probably gay guy in the world here. Tebow is human. If he likes females like the rest of the straight population he would be knee deep in vagina already. It's in our DNA. We can't control it. Now if he is gay then clearly he is scared to reveal it to his teammates and fans and has this Camilla girl as his "beard" to hide his gayness.
Either way nobody cares.

Seriously how do you take a third strike right down the middle to end the game? Come on Miggy. I thought you were the greatest player ever to win the Triple Crown? Sick pitch by Sergio Romo to give the SF Giants their 2nd World Series title in 3 years. M-V-Panda took home the hardware after his 3 bombs in Game 1. I thought the Giants would win in 5 games but clearly I was wrong. The Tigers just couldn't hit their pitching and the Giants finished off the sweep rather easily. To be honest I didn't watch more than 20 minutes of the World Series. I love playing baseball but once my Orioles and Braves are out of it I just can't make myself watch it.
Anyways congrats to the Giants. They deserved it. And as long as the Yankees don't win a nation can rejoice.

I gotta admit I was kind of hoping Lee Corso would point the gun at Desmond Howard. Just kidding. Not really. Yep, the media was right. Notre Dame didn't have a shot at going into Norman and beating the almighty Oklahoma Sooners. It made perfect sense too when Notre Dame entered the game undefeated with an all-time record of 8-1 vs the Sooners. Nobody could have predicted Notre Dame would come in and dominate Oklahoma 30-13 right? Oh wait. Yeah we did. So what's going to be the excuse now for all the ND haters out there? Oklahoma is overrated? Notre Dame hasn't played anybody good? Just keep on doubting the Irish. It just makes you look smarter.

11 tackles, one sack and one crucial diving interception on National Television to keep the Notre Dame Fighting Irish undefeated has thrust ILB Manti Te'o into the Heisman lead over KState's Collin Klein. If Notre Dame goes undefeated Te'o will be the first pure defensive player to ever win the 25 pound statue. He most certainly deserves it since so far he has been the "most outstanding football player."

Chris Cooley is back with the Redskins, happier than ever (having Robert Griffin III replace Rex Grossman will ward off any ill feelings about being released) after the Skins re-signed him following Fred Davis injury.
But the new contract didn't come easy. Apparently there were some heated negotiations about ... beer.
"Literally, I have text correspondence trying to negotiate a case of beer into my contract," Cooley said, via the Washington Post's Dan Steinberg. "They wouldn't do it. I wanted it in writing so much."Slow golf clap for one Mr. Cooley. I wonder what brand of beer though? Cooley looks more like a Natty Light guy to me than a pretentious MicroBrew guy. I'm both of those guys by the way. Or as some have labeled me including my sponsor "an alcoholic."

Remember the All-Star game when Kung Fu Panda rocked a triple off Justin Verlander? Well last night he added to his resume with two long balls off the reigning AL MVP on his way to a World Series record 3 bombs to join the likes of Babe Ruth, Reggie Jackson, and Albert Pujols. Say what you want about Verlander as he is probably the best starting pitcher in the game but please stop comparing him to Bob Gibson. Gibson was a big time clutch pitcher. Verlander clearly is not. For some reason Verlander doesn't pitch well in the postseason. With Sandoval heating up and the Giants dominant pitching including their bullpen I think the Giants win it in 5 games.

How can you not root for a kid like Manti Te'o? Yes I am a Notre Dame homer but this kid has to go down as one of the best ever to run out of that tunnel to the hollowed grounds of Notre Dame. As good as he is on the field he is by all accounts a better person off of it. The Heisman Trophy is suppose to go the most outstanding college football player in the nation who also exemplifies character. Te'o is the best player in college football right now. At the very least he deserves to get an invite to New York City as one of the finalists. He's the ultimate leader and teammate and decided to bypass the millions from the NFL to finish what he started at Notre Dame. And he is the best player on the field on any given Saturday. HE IS MANti.

How can you not love Lee Corso? The old man still has the moves after all these years on College Gameday. Corso if you were wondering picked the Irish to beat Stanford. In fact everybody did except for one guy: Desmond Howard. Howard is now 0-6 when it comes to picking Notre Dame this season. He's obviously not bias or dumb at all. A true scholar and college football "expert" one could say about Desmond.

The Orioles have resorted to throwing bats at Joba Chamberlain! Ok that's not the truth. But if you watched last night's 13 inning game nerve wrecker you will have noticed that the Orioles have no intention of backing down to the mighty New York Yankees. Joba got hit on his pitching elbow by Matt Wieter's broken off bat and had to come out of the game. This time the Yankees couldn't get two Raul Ibanez homers to pull off a miracle. Today they get a deciding game 5 with these two teams having evenly split their first 22 games. CC takes the mound for the Yankees and the Orioles will trot out Jason Hammel. I got money on the Orioles and not just because I'm a fan. This team is resilient and expects to win. The Orioles pitching has been outstanding. It will continue tonight. Orioles win 4-3.

Ohio State defensive coordinator Luke Fickell's wife Amy didn't enjoy her pizza delivery guy the other day and got him fired for making an innocent suggestion that the defense needs to improve their tackling. It's probably not the best comment to make to somebody especially when you are fishing for a tip but holy hell this lady needs to get off her high horse. It looks like Ohio takes their football as seriously as they do down here in the South. It's just too bad the Big Ten blows and the Buckeyes defense which gave up 38 points to Nebraska in a win Saturday could improve their tackling. The pizza delivery guy was right. Amy is just wrong.

I feel bad to admit this but I missed the whole last season of The League. It's one of the best comedies out there besides the Chicago Cubs and yet fatherhood and a nightly drinking habit kept me away. Well fuck that. It's time to get my Shiva Bowl on! In terms of comedies where would you rank it?
Here are mine. And like a Cubs fan feel free to argue your reason to live another day.
1) Curb Your Enthusiasm - Just delivers every episode. The Michael J. Fox episode was hilarious last season.
2) Modern Family - The writing is rather brilliant for a network show.
3) Veep - I laughed so hard at a couple of episodes tears formed. Brilliant writing and Julia Louis-Dreyfus dialogue with her co stars is fucking hysterical.
4) Californication - Hank Moody is my hero.
5) The League - I gotta watch season 3 but the first two were hilarious.
Just missed the cut: Always Sunny In Philadelphia (was kinda disappointed with it last year, probably has run it's course)

We are basically at midseason in college football with most teams putting in a solid 6 games. Right now it looks like a one man race (West Virginia's Geno Smith) but injuries happen and teams do collapse. Here are my top 5 Heisman candidates.
1. Geno Smith - Right now it's Geno's hardware to lose. Geno led another spirited win last week in Austin with 4 TD and zero point zero INTs to bring his season total to a whopping 24 TDs to 0 INTs. I don't know about you but that is kind of impressive. He also has a 81.4% completion percentage and a NCAA record 202.4 QB rating. By far the leading candidate Geno could lose a couple of games in Morgantown and still take home the Heisman in my opinion. It helps to play in the Big 12 also where defenses go to die.
2. Braxton Miller - Miller Time has the Buckeyes off to a 6-0 start and is putting up Cam Newton-like numbers. The sophomore hasn't quite polished his throws but is still over 60% with a 9 TD-to-3 INT ratio. His legs have been devastating with 763 yards rushing along with 8 TDs. Too bad Ohio State is ineligible for a postseason appearance or Miller would have a legitimate chance of at least competing with Geno right now.
3. Manti Te'o - Yes, a defensive player is in my top 3 candidates. Te'o is the face of the undefeated Fighting Irish and is the best linebacker in the game. He has been huge in big television games vs Navy, Michigan State, Michigan, and Miami. College GameDay has put the spotlight on him already with the loss of his girlfriend and grandmother which has pulled the heartstrings of America including myself. The team leader will get the chance to showcase himself on the big stage this week vs Stanford as well as future road games vs Oklahoma and USC. If ND keeps winning Te'o will at least get an invite to New York.
4. Collin Klein - I've never been fully convinced Optimus Klein is that good but he is proving me wrong this season. He has K State undefeated with huge wins over Miami and Oklahoma on his resume. His numbers are not nearly as outstanding as Smith but next week he will get his chance to go up against him as they travel to Morgantown. Win that game and Klein might have a chance to overtake Geno.
5. Marcus Lattimore - I still think Lattimore is the best runningback in the nation and if South Carolina keeps winning especially like they did last week vs Georgia he has a shot at an invite to New York. Unfortunately for him I'm not convinced he is even the best player on his team (hello Jadeveon Clowney) and I'm not sure how well he can hold up the next two weeks in games on the road at LSU and Florida. Both of those teams have defenses that will try to punish Lattimore.
Barely outside looking in: Jadeveon Clowney, Jarvis Jones, De'Anthony Thomas, Johnny Manziel, Marquise Lee

The Faile family from Kershaw, South Carolina, was the Columbia Metropolitan Airport Military Family of the Game, set to be recognized on the field. Their first surprise was a message to them from their dad/husband, Sergeant First Class Scott Faile, playing on the video board, followed by an even bigger surprise. The Gamecocks would go on to beat Georgia, 35-7, just as Sgt. Faile predicted.
These videos always get me. It's like watching Old Yeller get the gun. Not many people realize the sacrifices the soldiers and their families have to go through in order to keep our freedoms. Tip of the hat to the University of South Carolina for pulling this off and making these strange water droplets come out of my eyes on a Monday morning.

The Notre Dame defense hasn't given up a touchdown in a month. Notre Dame has yet to trail in a game. They are undefeated at 5-0 despite playing one of the most difficult schedules in all of football. ESPN's GameDay will be in South Bend this week for the Stanford game.
Brian Kelly and the boys have woken up the echoes. Ranked 7th you could make a strong argument that Notre Dame is one of the most underrated teams in the nation. With Everett Golson coming into his own the offense should continue to make improvements. With Manti Te'o leading a stout defense the Irish should continue to control the line of scrimmage. It's a great time to be a Notre Dame fan. Go Irish!

WTF is wrong with me? Am I taking crazy pills? I actually agree completely here with Todd McShay's top Heisman candidates at this point of the season. Obviously my bias would put Manti Te'o at the top of the list but I can't disagree with having Colin Klein at the top right now. Klein has been huge in big victories over Miami and Oklahoma and is having a RG3 type season so far.

I will be the first to admit the NFL has been a joke this season with the replacement referees butchering the games but I also have to admit this has already been one of the more entertaining NFL seasons that I can recall. Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate clearly committed an offensive pass interference that is rarely if ever called especially when it comes to a hail mary pass but I gotta love the two referees looking at one another and then agreeing to call opposite calls. Priceless.
I'm so glad I decided not to bet on this game. I was close to betting heavily on the Packers at -3. With the controversial TD the Seahawks won by 2. And Vegas erupted as expected. If you are a gambling man stay away from the NFL. The NFL is always uncertain but now with the replacement officials it's become chaos.
And just a FYI when I watched the play live I thought it was an interception but when they landed on the ground it looked to me that Golden had wrestled the ball away. If the Packers just bat the ball away we have no controversy.

How can you not root for a guy like Manti Te'o? The guy plays with his heart on his sleeve and every day he gives you his all. There isn't a better middle linebacker in the college game and the last two weeks there hasn't been a more complete college player than Manti. I know defensive players don't win Heismans but just like Ndamukong Suh a few seasons ago it's time for the best player in college to get one. So why not Manti Te'o?

Oh how we love thee Lane Kiffin. You know it's pretty bad when even USC grads and fans are fucking embarrassed to have this dick as their head coach. While he wasn't busy enough to throw his quarterback and senior captain Matt Barkley under the bus for the loss on Saturday to Stanford he obviously doesn't have the time now to answer any more questions from the media.

Bundy was the 4th overall pick in last year's draft out of high school and now a little over a year is already in the big leagues at the ripe age of 19. Bundy went a combined 9-3 with a 2.08 ERA at three different minor-league levels so far this season.
The Orioles are clearly going for it all this season. With their first winning season secured in 15 years they have broken from the norm by calling up top prospects early when most of the experts viewed it as questionable at best. Manny Machado was called up a few months ago to fill in at third base. He has solidified their infield defense (Orioles haven't made an error in 10 games after leading the majors in the category) while also coming up with clutch hits. Machado just turned 20 and now Bundy the teenager will play a huge pivotal role in getting the Orioles back into the playoffs.
If you are an Orioles fan or baseball fan in general you have to be excited. The Orioles are a team full of young guys with some veterans that were cast aways and yet are tied with the New York Yankees for first place with 15 games to go. They are the David to the Yankees Goliath. In two weeks we will see how fresh faces like Bundy and Machado are able to cast their stones and slay the beast of the East.

Is Stanford a serious title contender? They lost their star QB in Andrew Luck and 3 of their offensive linemen to the NFL and still ran all over USC. Their schedule is brutal with Notre Dame and Oregon coming up but with a stingy defense and a really good running attack they could win both. I'm not a Stanford fan but I do admire how they play the game. They have toughness. They have grit. And they have the dumbest mascot in all of sports.
Great video by the way. It captures college football and it's spirit in 100 seconds. Awesome.

I'm glad Notre Dame didn't listen to all the "experts" out there who predicted the Fighting Irish didn't have a fighting chance in East Lansing vs Sparty. Well Notre Dame kicked the shit out of Sparty in every facet of the game. That is what you call a signature win on the road. The momentum should be outstanding heading into the Michigan game. The defense will want to prove that the last two seasons of Denard going ham on them in the second half was a fluke.
Heisman favorite Matt Barkley is now 0-4 vs Stanford after USC got their dicks kicked in by the Cardinal last night. You can kiss Barkley's Heisman goodbye (less than 50% completion, 0 TDs, 2 INTs) and USC BCS Title aspirations too.
Yesterday was a great day for college football. Go Irish!

That look on Herschel's face says it all. Don't mess with the greatest college running back of all-time Matt Leinart. It won't end well.
OJ was originally cast in Herschel's spot but for some reason he couldn't make it. Hmm. I wonder why?

I was wondering to myself if there was a less root able player than Jay "jerk face" Cutler and I think we found our answer: Josh Beckett. Jesus Christ you get paid $16 million a year you think you could hustle 90 fucking feet to first base. But no. Josh Beckett doesn't need to hustle because he mows down hitters on the mound like it's 2003. Oh wait, never mind. He sucks balls now. Have fun with that contract Dodgers.

This kid is just a rookie. If Derek Jeter makes this play it's shown five million times in the next 2 weeks. But Jeter isn't that heads up to make a play like this. Manny Machado is not a rookie anymore. He's a freak. Not only did he make this great play in the top of the 9th to preserve a tie game with the Rays but then he singled and scored the winning walk off run. It's September 13th and the Orioles are still tied for FIRST PLACE with the New York Yankees! 20 games to go. It's pennant fever in Baltimore.
I'm pretty sure Gary Thorne almost shit his pants when he saw Machado fake the throw. He at least had a honey fart.

Huge addition for the ACC Conference as Notre Dame will join the conference in all sports except football and hockey. The hockey team will join the Hockey East. The football team will remain independent but will play 5 games annually against ACC opponents. This year they already have 4 ACC opponents in Miami, Boston College, Wake Forest, and Pitt. The Big Ten meanwhile is sitting in the corner crying while sucking their thumb.
Personally I think this is a great move for Notre Dame. They join a power basketball conference while opening more doors down South for recruits. They get to keep all of their revenues in football while playing a national schedule. Athletic director Jack Swarbrick made the right move. It should be interesting to see how the bowl game scenarios play out.

Dude. That was awesome. Not only did the masked streaker accomplish his goal of streaking on his high school football field but he managed to get away. His junk just flopping everywhere, dangerously close to getting it clipped while jumping over two fences. This guy deserves a beer. SportsCrack says Bravo. Now let's please start getting women to do this. It's instant fame ladies!

This lady masturbates to a Tyler Wilson doll every night. I'm convinced. Holy shit. I feel embarrassed for the Pig Sooie Razorback hat. What did it ever do to be subjected to be on this crazy ladies head?

Don't worry Aggie fans. I wasn't impressed with the Florida cheerleaders either. Not only is the talent down with the players in the pads for Will Muschamp's crew but these cheerleaders have to be on the C squad. How does a cheerleader have a gut? She's probably carrying Muschamp's love child who can already run a 4.7 40.

I've been watching this gif of Browns rookie Trent Richardson absolutely destroying the Eagles Kurt Coleman for about 20 minutes this morning. It's beautiful. It's football perfectly captured within 2 seconds. I'm kinda tearing up just looking at it.

If you watched Missouri first tango in the SEC last night you should be aware they were treated to rude awakening by SacMan Jones. He was told he played old man football before the game. After the final whistle he proved he only plays GROWN MAN FOOTBALL. Now you can get the official #sacmanjones t-shirt to show your support. Comes in regular cotton and performance cool-dri (similar to an Under Armour shirt). Taking pre-orders now. Shipping starts September 12th.
