Bravo to Fox Sports 1 Katie Nolan for sticking up for colleague Regis Philbin. ESPN's Rick Reilly despite enormous odds has somehow managed to make himself look like an even bigger douche bag by slamming TV icon Philbin for his work on Fox Sports 1. Why would he do such a thing? I have no fucking clue but what I do know is Nolan is moving up quickly on the "SportsCaster" ladder. Combining good looks with smarts and a voice that is neither annoying or whiny while clearly presentable is going to do wonders for Nolan. In other words we are huge fans of her.

Before the internet was around there were two things for adolescent boys to look forward to getting in the mail: Victoria Secret's catalog and the SI Swimsuit Edition. They both had the hottest super models in there. From SpankBank material with Elle MacPherson, Stephanie Seymour, and Kathy Ireland among others just showing off enough skin to let a young boy's mind race to what could be. These days kids have it so easy. Anyways this Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover GIF is basically a jerkoff time machine. So many memories.

I know I sound like a school girl but these NFL Bad Lip Reading videos make me giggle. They probably didn't have enough time but it would have great if they had Richard Sherman's meltdown on there. Nevertheless it's a great job.

Cool now maybe the media can stop with the incessant Richard Sherman articles. I mean who really gives a shit anyways? Sherman is just a defensive back. He can talk all the trash he wants as long as he can back it up with his All-Pro play. It's not like he is the quarterback or a kicker who can single handily win or lose a game with his play. Hell Sherman didn't even make the interception. His teammate did. So please stop with the Sherman storyline. I get it. He's from Compton. He went to Stanford. He was a 5th round draft pick. He's the best corner in the game right now. He trash talks all fucking game. Blah blah. Until he intercepts a ball and returns it for a pick 6 Deion Sanders style then I don't really see what the big deal about Sherman is. He's just a defensive back who has the tendency to blow up on camera while being interviewed by Erin Andrews.
Oh and by the way he is not a "thug." "He is the Man" according to this new Beats by Dre commercial...

I'm so out of the loop these days but I think these three Minnesota Gophers students are taking selfies and/or Vines at the Minnesota/Wisconsin game last night. Well it's our duty to rank them in...um...order. Girl on the far left despite the TV graphic trying to block our view is clearly #1. She just has the "it" factor. She carries this crew 24/7. Now the tough part. Who is #2 and who is relegated to the dreaded #3 spot which isn't necessarily bad with this trio. Despite the bedazzled phone I got to go with the blonde for #2. It's the smile in the end. The cute little smirk just clinches it. Now we need to find out who these girls are. There must be Instagram pictures out there. By the way Minnesota won the game, upsetting #9 Wisconsin 81-68. They were clearly inspired by these gorgeous Gophers.

Just when I was starting to feel bad for the New York Yankees and those awful contracts they handed out to aging stars Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Carlos Beltran they go out and totally redeem themselves by signing Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka for seven-years, $155 million (plus $20 million posting fee). This signing will work out great for the Yankees. Tanaka has never pitched in the majors but fuck it, what does that matter? He put up great numbers in Japan so "let's pay him Clayton Kershaw money" is a great way to build a franchise. Brilliant in fact. Absolutely no way this signing blows up in their faces. Tanaka will perform great in the low pressure, laid back style that only New York can provide. Plus he isn't making quite as much as A-Rod so he won't have a bulls eye on his back. We all know Yankees fans are caring, loving individuals who no matter how much their stars struggle are only there to support them with admiration. Good luck in NY Tanaka!

I have no fucking clue what Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones said here at a clearly sold out New Orleans Pelicans game last night. After decades of studying, practicing, and perfecting the art of drunk I still can't translate Jacoby's slurs. Jacoby is so smashed he's wearing a LiveStrong bracelet. Bro those were in style 10 years ago. Yes ma'aaaamm!

Ok SportsCrack Nation this RussellMania shirt is going to be our big fund raiser for the American Cancer Society. As you probably know we have donated a portion of all our sales to the ACS since my Mom passed away from Cancer back in 2006. Well in the past week I've had two close friends also lose parents to the terrible disease. Simply put Cancer sucks! I've decided that 50% of all sales from the new RUSSELLMANIA SEATTLE shirts will go directly to the American Cancer Society. This is our chance to help stop this deadly disease. If you don't want the t-shirt and simply want to donate directly to the American Cancer Society because you are an awesome human being please go to their site at this link.
Thanks SportsCrack Nation!

I gotta admit this was a classy move by new Penn State head coach James Franklin. Franklin took out a near full page ad in The Tennessean to thank Vanderbilt for everything they gave him. Now you can get a small glimpse of why people like Franklin are so successful.
I've been arguing with some friends about Franklin. For some wacko reason they think he will be a massive failure in Happy Valley. I can't even grasp that bullshit. The guy won at Vanderbilt! Before he got to Nashville the Commodores had been to one, yes, one bowl game in the last 28 years. During his 3 years they went to 3 bowl games. I would say that is pretty damn good. Also they beat up on Tennessee, Georgia and Florida who are all SEC East blueblood programs.
If the Big Ten is ever going to get back to dominant conference play (have they ever?) they need to poach coaches from the SEC. Last year they did it with Urban Meyer going to Ohio State. This year it is Franklin. He will kill it for State Penn. College football needs Franklin to succeed at Penn State. It's so much more entertaining when at least a few teams from up north are competing for National Titles. We need to revive the Civil War of College Football. Yee Haw!

Of course I was the same way with Twitter at first but then you realize why so many people are getting on there: porn. No I'm kidding of course. Most people go on there for all the great information right?

What in the fuck was Nick Saban thinking?
People don't intentionally try to get AIDS or Cancer but here we are in 2014 and Saban has just infected his program with Kiffin. It's the most deadly disease known to football.
Those poor inbred cousins down in Tuscaloosa have no fucking clue what they are getting into with Kiffin. And don't even start with the "well he was a great coordinator with USC" bullshit. The Trojan's roster was full of Heisman winners and All-Americans. Gene Chizik and Larry Coker could have one done wonders with those players too.
In all honesty I have to thank Saban for hiring Kiffin. It's going to be pure entertainment down in Tuscaloosa. Saban is letting his ego get the best of him thinking he can turn anything into gold and shit maybe he does shine the shit off of Kiffin's turd of a coaching career but I seriously doubt it.

Hey I get you were very excited to win a playoff game. But if you are a Denver Broncos fan wearing a bright orange Peyton Manning jersey in San Diego it's probably not smart to go running around amongst Chargers fans shouting "Hey San Diego, Go Fuck Yourselves!" It's funny in "Anchorman" but it sure as shit isn't funny when you are getting your 300 lb ass kicked and then arrested.
Posted by Matt Fairchild (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 7:10 AM
Well you got to love the honesty. Peyton Manning is one of the all-time greats. He's also has a losing record in the playoffs and despite having a Super Bowl in his back pocket has a huge monkey on his back. So yeah if Peyton wants a fucking Bud Light at the end of the huge playoff win he will get it. Especially now that he knows he has Tom Brady and the Patriots coming to town he's has to feel parched. You know the folks over in Golden, CO are fucking pissed right now. Peyton just bitched slap Coors in the face with his St. Louis love.

The BCS Era is finally dead but it seems like Notre Dame's horrible January luck will continue to reign supreme. It's been 20 years since the Fighting Irish had a good first month of the New Year and after yesterday it could be another 20 years.
Here is a rough time line of the shit hitting the fan in South Bend.
LEADING RETURNING RECEIVER DAVARIS DANIELS SUSPENDED FOR SPRING
Davaris Daniels caught 49 passes for 745 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013 but won't be catching shit this spring other than study time after being suspended for a less than stellar GPA. Ahh the joys of playing at an actual academic institution. Daniels was expected to be QB Everett Golson's (another player suspended last season for academics) #1 target and really only proven receiving commodity other than TE Troy Niklas (shit we will get to him later) returning. Now it's up in the air. Yes he can return if he gets his grades back in order but as a rising senior this shouldn't even be an issue at this point in his collegiate career. Players like Daniels need to be leaders especially at a position at WR where they are extremely green. No Spring Game for Daniels means players like Chris Brown and CJ Procise as well as freshman wideouts Corey Robinson, Will Fuller, and James Onwuala will have to build some trust with Golson as he returns.
DT TOP RECRUIT MATT DICKERSON DECOMMITS, GOING TO UCLA
Well at least this news broke before signing day and not 3 months after. UCLA again poached a valuable ND recruit at a position where they struggle mightily to get quality numbers in defensive tackle. Last year it was freshman All-American Eddie Vanderdoes and this year it's another Northern Cali prospect in Matt Dickerson. Dickerson like Vanderdoes is citing family issues for flipping to UCLA and wanting to stay closer to home. This is understandable but both players are still a 5-6 hour drive from UCLA to their respective homes. In other words it's more BS. Oh well move on right? I mean defensive tackles are just rushing to get into Notre Dame now that Louis Nix is going first round to the NFL right? Fuck no.
NOTRE DAME SWITCHING TO UNDER ARMOUR
This is just a personal preference and not an indictment on Notre Dame. I just am not a fan of Under Armour. And yes I'm from Maryland originally but I think UA gear is overpriced and overrated. No offense but offense to my Maryland peeps. Supposedly ND picked UA over Nike after deciding to let their Adidas contract run out. A lot of recruits and fans were not happy with the decision. They bitched and moan about it on Twitter and Facebook. I was also one of those fans. I don't want to protect this house. I want Nike and field turf and a fucking video board in the stadium in 2014. But none of these things look like they will happen. Awesome.
TROY NIKLAS DECLARES FOR NFL DRAFT
This was the final dick kick I needed before going to bed late last night. Presumed to be returning tight end Troy Niklas aka Hercules aka build himself into a 1st round pick in 2014 aka what the fuckity fuck are you doing declaring for the NFL draft? I've had some time to rethink this and if I was in Niklas size 15 shoes I would have come back for my senior season and strive to make myself the best tight end in the nation but I can also see leaving early. Football careers are short and concussions are extremely dangerous. Niklas has the later already. You gotta get your money "legally" while you can and after talking with Tyler Eifert and others Niklas made his decision. At least he told Brian Kelly about it unlike Stephon Tuitt who went straight to the media. No way to sugar coat it but losing Niklas and Tuitt are tremendous losses. Physically no one can replace those two on the roster. But hey look on the bright side at least Notre Dame plays a shit schedule like Ohio State...oh wait...nevermind.
And last but not least I've heard some grumblings about Kelly and the NFL. At this point nothing would surprise me. With so many players jumping ship and academics taking away elite talent I'm not so sure Kelly returns in 2014. At this point they are just rumors but until Notre Dame or Brian Kelly come out and announce his new offensive coordinator (?) and defensive coordinator (Brian VanGorder) I'm going to prepare myself for the worst. Because make no mistake losing Kelly would be devastating. And no Gruden is not walking through that Golden Dome door nor would I want him.

I'm not even going to lie. College football is a lot more boring without Johnny Fucking Football. Whether you love him or hate him you gotta at least respect his "on the field" game. Manziel can flat out ball. I think I'm in the minority of people who think he will succeed at the next level. Johnny just has it. And by it I mean chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HPV. In all seriousness Johnny is a leader and a college football legend. The Aggies were just a run of the mill Big 12 team before Johnny came along. In two seasons he almost took them to the mountaintop of the SEC by himself. If the Aggies had any defense we would be talking about Manziel as the best player since Herschel. That's not hyperbole. It's the truth. Plus Manziel is as much a player off the field as he is on it. He's the new Joe Namath without the porn stache. I'm sure the notches on his belt in College Station were legendary and one can only imagine what kind of pull he will have in a new NFL city. He's going to be a top 10 pick and part of me wishes my Atlanta Falcons would trade Matt Ryan for draft picks, draft Johnny, and grab some defensive studs with a late first/early 2nd round. I want the JFF show to come to Atlanta permanently. He's got more talent than Ryan and a hell of a lot more personality.
As a college football I want to Thank You Johnny Football. College football needs polarizing figures like Manziel because lightning only strikes so often. You gotta enjoy the spark while it lasts because before you know it it will be gone.

Blast From The Past: Chicks Dig The Long Ball Commercial Featuring Hall of Famers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine
In the end Atlanta Braves teammates Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine got the last laugh. Hall of Fame Bitch! Where you at Big Mac? Probably crying in your pillowcase filled with Heather Locklear's gray pubes.
By the way where the hell was Smoltzie? He must not have been a Nike guy. It's the only thing I can figure out. As great as Maddux and Glavine were the one pitcher you wanted on the mound for Game 7 was Smoltz. It's not even a question. Smoltzie will get his Hall of Fame plaque next year along with the Big Unit and Pedro.

Is it just me or does it look like when FSU gets off the bus they just lost the game? Jesus Christ guys you could at least smile and thank the fans a little bit. You just won a fucking National Championship!
Jameis didn't rape anybody on the bus did he? Bad Jameis. Bad Bad. Now go to your room.
What a bunch of entitled pussies! They could give two shits about their fans chanting like Seminole savages and cheering them on as they are welcomed home. Nope. They just want to get their paycheck and call it a day.
I didn't think it was at all possible but now I feel bad for FSU fans. At least other schools players have an appreciation for them. It's like they went to go pick up their girlfriend at the airport only to find out she brought back her "friend" who's been nailing her on the side. These FSU players look like they just found out Santa wasn't real.
Maybe they are just still in shock they beat a SEC school. Yeah that must be it. Fuckers.

Only degenerates like myself would understand the pain of what this feels like when you have a bet that's going to pay off only for it to be jerked away from the hands of a bookie. This 2013 College Football season was especially painful. Those mortal locks we thought were 99.999% fool proof slipped through the cracks. It can take the pleasure of a victory away when your team doesn't cover the shitty 7 points it needed but instead won on a last second field goal. Sweet we won but I also lost my hookers and blow retainer.

Congratulations to Atlanta Braves teammates Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine along with Chicago White Sox slugger Frank "Big Hurt" Thomas for being elected first ballot to Cooperstown. All 3 of these guys deserved to be elected and were all clean of PEDs in my opinion. I of course have fond memories of Maddux and Glavine growing up in Atlanta in the 90's with those two along with the greatest Atlanta Braves pitcher in my mind John Smoltz forming a ridiculous rotation at the top for Bobby Cox's crew. The Big Hurt was one of my favorite players who didn't wear a Braves or Orioles uniform and I can still remember meeting him as a kid and getting his autograph. The Big Guy was one of the nicer guys I've met along with Ozzie, Cal and Smoltzie.
PS if anybody doesn't think Craig Biggio did steroids along with Jeff Bagwell then I'm sorry but you are either a blind Houston Astros fan or an idiot. It wouldn't have bothered me too much if Biggio got in because he has never tested positive but the eye test doesn't lie. Biggio only fell a couple of votes short of election so there's a good chance he gets in next year.
The three elected join managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre, and Tony LaRussa as the first 6 living inductees since 1971. Odds are LaRussa will bring one of his cats to give his HOF speech.

Do Lee Corso, Lou Holtz, Verne Lundquist, and Brent Musburger all have the same agent? All 4 of these college football horses should have been put out to pasture years ago yet here they are...still fucking up on national television. Granted I love them all and television is entertainment so I can see why TV execs continue to push them on the viewers. I'm just wondering when one of them will show up in nothing but ladies underwear, jacking it on live television after an all night blow fest. Don't laugh. It's going to happen. My money is on Corso. He looks like a blow and hookers type of guy.

Well it's obviously Jameis since he has a Heisman Trophy and now a National Championship after last night. But Red Lightning is creeping up real quickly. That curly haired freckled ginger snap is all the rage right now. And as you can see from last night he played the victim of Cougar bait. His shirt wide open Miami Vice style while the cougars swarm in by the smell of his red pubes. He's simply irresistible. Red Lightning is a Dos Equis commercial come to life. God speed bro!

Granted the Great One's daughter didn't get his famous number "99" tattooed above her ass in the time honored traditional spot for a tramp stamp but does the left hip qualify as the minor leagues of tramp stamps? Maybe I need to ask Wayne what he thinks. He must be honored. Also I think Joe Cool lost a couple of his toes inside her bottom. Chances are 99% of men have lost stuff in there.

Good lord Jesse Palmer why don't you just get on your knees and suck him off while you are at it. There is a good reason why Tim Tebow is a virgin. His "homeostasis" radar is through the roof. You went to your hotel room and had a circle jerk for 3 hours Tebow? That's nice but please don't share that story ever again. I need to go take a cold shower now because Tebow was straight fire.
By the way does anybody really think Auburn has a chance tonight? On paper it looks like a total mismatch vs FSU but then again all 4 of the BCS games have been won by the underdog. UCF was a 17 pt dog to Baylor and crushed them. Oklahoma was a 16.5 point dog to Bama and throttled Saban and his crew. Sparty was a touchdown dog to the Nerds and won the Rose Bowl. And last but not least Clemson was 3 pt dogs to Ohio State and won the Orange Bowl. So could Auburn pull a huge upset as 10 point dogs in Pasadena? I just don't see it. But then again no one thought War Eagle would even be near this game after a disastrous 3-9 season.
I just want to see a good game and see who Brent Musberger undresses with his eyes and words while giving so and so's girlfriend her long awaited 15 minutes of fame. My money is on Johnny Football's latest road beef, Lauren Hanley.

LSU freek nailed this one directly on the head. Hilarious. Texas fans were hoping for Jim Harbaugh only to be disappointed with Charlie Strong when he rides in "Blazing Saddles."
In all seriousness this is a home run hire for Texas. Strong is a great coach as well as recruiter who has tremendous ties in the state of Florida. He crushed it in Louisville leading them to two bowl victories with beat downs against Florida and Miami with more talent than his Cardinals team. Now imagine what he can do with Texas and their resources.
Brand new Don't Mess With Strong vintage style t-shirts are now available for PRE ORDER here.

Word is #GaTech coach Paul Johnson is not happy with the school. Hopes they buy him out, according to a source.
— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) January 3, 2014
I actually think it's the other way around at this point. Georgia Tech is not happy with Paul Johnson. After Johnson blew a two-touchdown lead to rival Georgia at home and then shit the bed in the bowl game vs Ole Miss I think we could all see that the Johnson triple-option era is about to come to a crashing halt.
Starting QB Vad Lee has already stated he is transferring.
Johnson doesn't recruit and doesn't sell the program.
If he was winning 9 plus games a season he could get away with his surly attitude but he does not. Georgia Tech is still the same 7-5 team they were when Chan Gailey was roaming The Flats sideline.
It's not good enough and Johnson needs to go. The problem is Tech doesn't want to buy out the contract. Johnson is under contract until 2016 after signing an extension in 2009.
If you were GT AD Mike Bobinski what would you do?

#1 prospect Leonard Fournette is one of those rare athletes who plays football and only football. Education be damn. I don't know how well he will fit in at the "University of LSU" with all their scholars. I feel bad for the kid with all the tutors writing his papers and filling out his tests while building up his draft stock in 3 seasons in Baton Rouge. Rough life. Hopefully he gets paid while he is there. Luckily he choose a conference in the SEC which values education over cheating.
