Steve Spurrier dumps mourning Stephen Garcia.

Steve Spurrier dumps mourning Stephen Garcia.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on October 4, 2011

Here's a true story. A few year's back, my Sunday School teacher handed out a questionnaire to the class. It had questions like "What are angels?" "What are demons?" and "Who is Satan?" When the the class finished filling the questionnaires out, the teacher took them up and began scanning through them. He stopped at one and looked at one class member's response to "Who is Satan?" "You've got to be kidding me!" The teacher shouted. "Steve Spurrier?!?" Three guesses who wrote that. (In my defense I put a "Just kidding!" next to it.) I bring this up in reaction of Spurrier's most recent act of heartlessness that should remind you why describing The Old Ball Coach as "Satan" is common in the South, and not just within the borders of Georgia. Spurrier has decided to bench South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia after a lackluster performance in the Gamecocks' defeat to Auburn. What's not been widely commented on is what Garcia was apparently going through at the time. "This past week, Garcia's grandfather died, although he remained with the team to play against Auburn." Nice job, Spurrier. Kick a player when his down and in mourning. Granted, Garcia didn't have a performance like the one Brett Favre had after his father died. But that move was cold. And people wonder what Spurrier has instead of a soul. (via ESPN) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Badgers are "sexy" beasts. Because Bret Bielema said so.

Badgers are "sexy" beasts. Because Bret Bielema said so.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on October 3, 2011

Bret Bielema, sex machine. Wisconsin took the role of the Welcome Wagon when new Big Ten member Nebraska came to Camp Randal Stadium. The Badgers then proceeded to take the wagon and run over the Cornhuskers in a 48-17 win. Not to say Wisconsin's overconfident right now, but look how the team's head football coach, Bret Bielema described his team. “We’re sexy,” coach Bret Bielema said. The 2011 Badgers aren’t the typical bruising Wisconsin team that just runs over opponents. Quarterback Russell Wilson brings a dynamic that complements what Wisconsin has always done best. “I still believe that we’re Wisconsin and what we are,” Bielema said. “We’re just extremely good right now.” The Badgers are sexy. Uh, okay. That's not the first word that comes to mind of when I think of the  Wisconsin Badgers. For me, "nightmare inducing" is a more proper description of what I think of them, but that's just because of Bucky Badger. Bielema may think the Badgers are "sexy" beasts, but apparently the AP writers think  LSU, Alabama, and Oklahoma are sexier. That's who are ahead of Wisconsin in the AP writers poll. Worse, the USA Today coaches poll has them fifth with Stanford ahead of them as well. (via Rivals.com) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Wisconsin celebrates "Corn Roast!" over Nebraska with a t-shirt.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on October 2, 2011

Saturday night's 48-17 Wisconsin victory over Nebraska resulted in the very good probability that Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini invented a few new cuss words hereto unknown in the English language. What the win resulted in for certain is this "Corn Roast!" t-shirt being sold by Bucky's Locker Room. With the game's historic status as Nebraska's first game against a fellow Big Ten member school, this shirt's bound to be a collector's item.

South Florida loss means Big East has been all but eliminated from this year's BCS championship.

South Florida loss means Big East has been all but eliminated from this year's BCS championship.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on September 30, 2011

The college football season is only five weeks old, but for the Big East, it's all over when it comes to the BCS championship. Worse, it can blame it on the actions of not one, but of its own teams. Albeit one that is soon to be an ex-Big East team. Thursday night's 44-17 victory by Pittsburgh over previously unbeaten South Florida all but guaranteed that the Big East will be on the outside looking in (as usual) when it comes to a real chance at the BCS title. The Bulls were previously the only Big East team that hadn't been beaten this season. With their loss, the chances for a Big East team to reach the BCS title game became slim to none. Not that a Big East team had a real chance of a BCS title in the first place, of course. But the South Florida loss put the nail in the coffin. Even if no school goes unbeaten this season, the chances that the BCS title game would feature a team from the SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, and even the ACC are greater than those of the Big East, who are definitely the junior partner in the BCS coalition. Pittsburgh has already been beaten by Iowa, so the Panthers had nothing to lose, really. And considering that the Panthers are leaving the Big East for the ACC, they probably won't be losing any sleep over it. (via Rivals. com) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Forget Les Miles. Brady Hoke is becomming a Mad Hatter in his own right.

Forget Les Miles. Brady Hoke is becomming a Mad Hatter in his own right.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on September 30, 2011

Does this look like a sane man to you? Remember when Michigan tried to hire Les Miles away from LSU? Well, it seems that Wolverine head football coach Brady Hoke is turning out to be a Mad Hatter in his own right. In this case, though he's more like Jervis Tech, the Batman chapeau-obsessed arch-enemy who goes by the the Mad Hatter moniker than a Mad Hatter like Miles, whom is, well, mad. It seems that Hoke has gotten into the habit of confiscating Wolverine player's headgear that feature sports teams that are not Michigan.   "Those are hats from players that don't wear Michigan hats in here," Hoke told the San Diego Union-Tribune while showing off his collection, which now includes specimens touting the Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Penguins — though no one, thankfully, has had the audacity to walk in wearing a logo from another school. "You only wear Michigan in here." Hoke's "Michigan only" philosophy is of the kind that, if found outside of a college sports program, would be possibly be labeled as cult-like. Michigan players should pray that they don't show up to practice one day to find Hoke standing at the door between twin vats of applesauce and Kool-aid. Or that The FBI doesn't show up at the Michigan practice facility in full riot gear. And Heaven forbid that a player decides to show up wearing a cap from another school, especially if that school is Ohio State. Hoke may add the cap to his horde...along with the player's head.
