Tornado hits near Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscalooa

Shirts Without Random Triangles: Oh no! Colonel Reb and the Rebel Black Bear have been polymorphed

By Juan Cena in SWRT on April 27, 2011

Is it any shock that a t-shirt with an image like this one has shown up? The shock is more the amount of time it took to show up. The polymorphed Colonel Reb/Rebel Black Bear t-shirt was seen in a Jackson, MS store called The Rogue. I'm sure the Colonel Red diehards will not be amused by this.

Janoris Jenkins is an ex-Gator.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on April 26, 2011

Janoris Jenkins from a previous visit to jail. If there is any sign that things at Florida under new head football coach Will Muschamp may be different than they were under Urban Meyer, then the following news may be it. Muschamp has  dropped the banhammer down on Gator cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who was arrested over the weekend for marijuana possession. It happened to be the second marijuana-related arrest for Jenkins in three months. Muschamp met with Jenkins Tuesday morning and gave him the news of the CB's dismissal. The dismissal is a hopeful sign for those who have criticized former Florida coach Urban Meyer for the number of players that had been arrested under his administration that things might be different under Muschamp.

Ohio State set to meed NCAA infractions comittee on August 12.

Ohio State set to meed NCAA infractions comittee on August 12.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on April 25, 2011

Generalissimo Tressel The NCAA has set an August 12 date for Ohio State to appear before the association's committee on infractions over head football coach Jim Tressel's withholding of information regarding Tatgate. It sent Ohio State a “notice of allegations” regarding the situation on Monday. Fortunately for Ohio State, the notice comes down harder on Tressel than on the school. "In a 13-page indictment of Tressel’s behavior, the NCAA alleged that Tressel had “permitted football student-athletes to participate in intercollegiate athletics while ineligible.” It also said he “failed to deport himself … (with) honesty and integrity” and said he was lying when he filled out a compliance form in September which said he had no knowledge of any NCAA violations by any of his players." The outcome of Ohio State's meeting with the infractions committee could result in the school having to vacate victories from last season. It could also seal Jim Tressel's fate, if it decides to punish him or the school with penalties harder than the five game suspension.  (via Rivals.com) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Auburn Blogger wants Sirius/XM to dump Paul Finebaum.

Auburn Blogger wants Sirius/XM to dump Paul Finebaum.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on April 25, 2011

 Track 'Em Tigers contributor Jay Coulter has had it with Paul Finebaum, or at least being to able hear "Pawl" on Sirius/XM. In an open letter to Sirius/XM CEO Mel Karmazin, Coulter demanded that Finebaum be yanked from the satellite radio provider's schedule after the latest radio tryst on his show with accused Toomer's Corner tree poisoner Harvey Updyke and his lawyer, Glennon Threatt last week. "We beg you to please pull The Paul Finebaum Show from your programming lineup. For a state that's tried hard to overcome George Wallace and Taylor Hicks, the daily musings of Alabama's most ignorant on national radio is too much for a state to endure." Obviously, Coulter believes that Sirius/XM subscribers are getting a distorted view of what life in Alabama is really like. Of course, most of them already had that perception before Updyke decided upon his infamous act of stupidity. "The vast majority of fans in this state view the Auburn-Alabama rivalry for what it is: a nice diversion from the struggles of everybody life in the Deep South. While fans from both schools generally dislike the other on football Saturday's, we do take a sense of pride in producing the last two national champions." At least for the moment, they can. "Listening to Finebaum, it's easy to understand why many of you in New York view the South the way you do. I promise it's not like this in all parts of Alabama. Just stay away from Bryant-Denny Stadium in the fall and the all-you-can-eat buffet at Golden Corral on Saturday night and you'll be fine. I hope you'll consider my request. The state has suffered enough. With double-digit unemployment and Bear Bryant starting to fade from the memories of even the oldest Alabama fans, the good people of this state need a break." It's obvious to see why Coulter would be upset about Finebaum's continued involvement with the Updyke story. It has certainly boosted his amount of time and his position in the national spotlight. However, pulling him off Sirius/XM (or terrestrial broadcasting) will do nothing to change what the rest of America feels about Alabama, good or bad.

Jim Tressel trades in his sweater vest for camo pants and combat boots for Ohio St. spring game.

Jim Tressel trades in his sweater vest for camo pants and combat boots for Ohio St. spring game.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on April 24, 2011

Yes, that's "Generalissimo" Jim Tressel wearing BDU pants and combat boots instead of his dapper red sweater vest at Ohio State's newly rechristened "Jesse Owens Spring Game" on Saturday. Unless he's wearing it under the jacket, of course; which would be taking things to a hereto unlevel of dorkiness not seen on this plane of existence.  The BDU pants went along with the camouflage helmets the Buckeyes wore during the game, which will be autographed and sold for $1,000 each to raise money for The Ohio National Guard Family Readiness and Warrior Support Program, LiFE (Learning in Fitness & Education) through Sports Program, and the Ruth and Jesse Owens Scholars Fund. (Insert probably inappropriate-in-this-situation snarky comments involving TatGate here)  Tressel may want to keep those is BDU trousers on hand, because he may going to need them pretty soon. Because it's reported that the NCAA  may be ready to drop the banhammer on him and Ohio State over his involvement in not reporting what he knew about TatGate to his bosses. At least that's what central Ohio televesion station WBNS is reporting on its website. (via CBS Sports,  Along the Olentangy, WBNS, ) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Derek Dooley uses life lessions when dealing with Tyler Bray.

Derek Dooley uses life lessions when dealing with Tyler Bray.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on April 23, 2011

It must be frustrating at times to be Tennessee head football coach Derek Dooley when it comes to dealing with sophomore quarterback Tyler Bray. Bray certainly has the potential to be the top QB in the SEC next season, jumping ahead  of Georgia's Aaron Murray and South Carolina's Stephen Garcia (if he gets off suspension and gets a clue, that is). His spring practice struggles, on the other hand, shows  California's native son still isn't quite up to the measure of Peyton Manning quite yet. Bray's notorious laid-back mentality certainly doesn't make things easier for Dooley, either. His "flatlinine" mentality on the field is at times equally (and sometimes simultaneously) a plus and a minus. It also can be frustrating for a coach trying to educating his player on improving his skills. The knowledge of the infamous ink job on Bray's back lying deep inside of the crevices Dooley's immaculate hair-covered brain has to keep him away at nights as well. So how does His Hairness deal with Bray's up-and-down spring practice? Apparently by focusing on life lessons he's learned on-the-job. In this case, one involving his time at LSU as one of Nick Saban's assistants, and dealing with struggling QB Matt Mauck. “I always get a little nervous about overvaluing the spring game, because I remember the year (before) we won the national championship, Matt Mauck had (five) interceptions in the spring game at LSU,” Dooley said. “We were in a panic state all offseason and summer, and then he went on to be the winningest quarterback in LSU history." Whether this means that Bray leads Tennessee to a BCS Championship is still too soon to tell. But Dooley has to know that Bray has the potential to be a better QB than Mauck was. And perhaps one of the best SEC QB's in recent years as well. (via ESPN, Go Vols Xtra) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles
