Bruce Pearl gets Obamaed

Bruce Pearl gets Obamaed

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 19, 2011

  Yes, Bruce Pearl supporters went there. At least they didn't use this pic for the Obamafying: Of course the next obvious question is if there's a Team Pearl, can a cookbook a la Team Leach's Fat Little Girlfriends Cookbook be far behind?  (If it is, let's hope Team Pearl remembers to make all the dishes kosher.)

Are West Virignia fans the worst college sports fans in America?

Are West Virignia fans the worst college sports fans in America?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 18, 2011

GQ has come out with its list of "The Worst Sports Fans In America." It's no surprise that Philadelphia tops the list. Not only that, it takes the top two spots, with one each  for Phillies and Eagles fans. But West Virginia Mountaineer fans might be a little hot under the collar for landing the #3 spot on the list, thus becoming the de facto worst college sports fans in America. What earned West Virginia the dubious spot over the amazingly annoying Cameron Crazies of Duke (who only merit a #8 on the list) or the more violent antics of Penn State (#7)? Apparently a hopeless devotion to pyromania.  "But what really defines the West Virginia University faithful is their devotion to celebratory arson. The school led the nation in intentionally set street fires from 1997 to 2003, lighting up an unmatchable 1,120 blazes." 1,120, blazes in seven years? That apparently counts for more than even the worst riots by #5 Maryland on the list (including one that did $500,000 of damage in 2001). The other school fanbases on the list include Penn State (#7),  LSU (#10), Wisconsin (#13), and Oregon (#14). (via GQ) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Mike Hamilton apologizes to Bruce Pearl for radio interview comments.

Mike Hamilton apologizes to Bruce Pearl for radio interview comments.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 17, 2011

Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton started an internet frenzy yesterday. In an interview with a Knoxville radio station, he placed doubts on the Vols' head basketball coach Bruce Pearl's employment status after the end of this season. Today reports come out that Hamilton called Pearl to apologize for the statements. Pearl is reported to have said that "I think Mike would have prepared for it to not come out like this."It doesn't sound like the eventual meeting between the two following the team's exit from the NCAA Tournament will be a very warm and fuzzy occasion.

Before he was a Super Bowl champion wide reciever for the Green Bay Packers, Jordy Nelson played for the Kansas State Wildcats. Which would explain the appearance of Willie the Wildcat at the end of has to be the cheese(head)iest commercial ever filmed. This being how he bought his wife a car from Kansas State Motors for their anniversary. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be embarrassed by the cheesy script Nelson was given.

Big Tentacles: Brady Hoke, Michigan and Ricky Stanzi.

Hangin' Tough. Brady Hoke is apparently making Michigan a tougher football team. Or at least he said one form of the word "toughness" or another lot in a news conference on Tuesday. (ESPN) Be afraid, be very afraid? Should Michigan fans be concerned about recruit Chris Barnett's connections to Baron Flenory, a person of interest in the recent recruiting scandal?  Maybe.  (M Go Blog) Former Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi scored a 30 on the Wonderlic Test, which is five points or so  what a good QB should get on the test apparently.

Is Bruce Pearl era at Tennessee ending?

Is Bruce Pearl era at Tennessee ending?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 16, 2011

Is the Bruce Pearl era at Tennessee nearing an end? In an interview with Knoxville radio station WNML, Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton says he isn't sure whether or not Pearl, the subject of an NCAA investigation, will return to coach next season. "Asked point blank if Pearl will be UT’s coach next season, Hamilton said: "We don’t know the answer today. We’ve done a lot of soul searching about the direction of our program and we’ll continue to do that and we’ll decide after we’re out of the NCAA Tournament what direction it is that we’re going to go next." Hamilton wasn’t specific as to a timetable on determining Pearl’s future. "That’ll be a decision we make in the short term or we’ll wait and make it a little bit further down the road," Hamilton said. "But the jury is out on what’s going to happen with that at this point. … He knows that, by the way." Hamilton also said in the interview that Tennessee  was unaware of Pearl committing a "bump" violation involving a recruit four days after the coach admitted to lying about about improper contacts with recruits at his home in a press conference until the NCAA reported it to the school. "The NCAA charged that Pearl committed a "bump" violation four days after a tearful press conference announcing he lied to the NCAA about cookout at his home in 2009. Pearl did not report it to UT because he didn’t think it was a violation. That apparently hasn’t sat well with Hamilton and the UT administration, which learned of the incident from the NCAA. If the Volunteer's run in the NCAA Tournament is short. Pearl's tenure at Tennessee might end soon after. (via Mr. SEC,  WNML) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

A Big Ten Potato Bar? A Big Ten Potato Bar.

A Big Ten Potato Bar? A Big Ten Potato Bar.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 15, 2011

Apparently, spectators at last weekend's Big Ten basketball tournament the option of 11 different kinds of hamburgers and baked potatoes in Conseco Fieldhouse.  The baked potato bar being the most surreal of the two. Not to mention most appropriate, as this is the Big Ten we're talking about here. (And yes, Nebraska, you got hosed. You'll have to wait for next year to get yours) Just hope that Northwestern head football coach wasn't at the tournament. You see a potato bar, he sees an army that he can conquer the world with.

Georgia self-reports recruiting violation involving Isaiah Crowell. (UPDATED)

Georgia self-reports recruiting violation involving Isaiah Crowell. (UPDATED)

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 14, 2011

Isaiah Crowell with UGA VI decedent. The prevailing philosophy in the NCAA seems to be that if you aren't committing recruiting violations, then you aren't trying.  Mind you, a coach even breathing the wrong way on a recruit is probably an NCAA violation, so it isn't that hard to do. So give Georgia credit at least for finding a way to commit one while recruiting tailback Isaiah Crowell, and for self-reporting the violation to the NCAA. "Coach Mark Richt committed a violation when he included Crowell in a simulated “missing man” formation with current  Georgia players during Crowell’s visit to campus in January, according to a March 4 letter from UGA athletic director Greg McGarity to the NCAA. The letter was obtained by the AJC and other media outlets today under open-records requests." Of course, Richt says he didn't know letting Crowell get involved in a simulated formation was a recruiting violation...sort of. "According to the letter, Richt knew it would be against NCAA rules to use equipment or run a play involving a recruit, but did not know the limited Jan. 23 activity was against the rules.  The SEC subsequently informed Georgia that the incident constituted a violation of the NCAA rule against “game day simulation” for prospects." Richt claiming that he didn't know he was committing an NCAA violation may have been a  cheesy move,  but he's one of the few SEC coaches who you could actually take his explanation on face value...almost. UPDATE:  As punishment for the Crowell recruiting violation, Richt is "barred from phoning recruits and their parents" in April, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.

First, we'll harass all the lawyers. Christopher Cicerom  the lawyer who told Jim Tressel about the "Tat 5" scandal says he has gotten death threats since his story went public this week.
