Joe Namath surveys tornado damage and recovery efforts in Tuscaloosa.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 24, 2011

Legendary Alabama and New York Jets quarterback  Joe Namath returned to his Tuscaloosa collegiate days' stomping grounds to tour the damage caused by the tornadoes that hit the city in April, and to survey the rebuilding efforts in the area. He was accompanied by the Mayor of Tuscaloosa, Walt Maddox. "It's very difficult," Namath said standing in front of what once was the elementary school's entrance. "I'm just astounded at what I've seen as far as destruction goes, but certainly enthused because of the people's effort so far. And I know we will be there continuously after this. It's easy to talk about doing things and getting things straight, but it's awful time-consuming. You can't quite relate to what effort it's taken the people of Tuscaloosa to get together and help out."  "My heart just aches for the folks that have suffered so dramatically. But we need to stay positive." (via Huntsville Times) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Les Miles is on a boat.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 24, 2011

(Photo Via Sports by Brooks) Courtesy of Sports by Brooks, here's probably the last thing on Earth you ever wanted to see - Les Miles shirtless.* It's certainly not the first thing I want to see when I click onto the Internet in the morning. What's even more disturbing is that the Mad Hatter looks like he had been partaking in some manscaping at the time. This pic is a few years old, taken on a LSU booster's boat called "Tiger Bait." (Insert Charlie Sheen joke here). Well, who else would let a shirtless Les Miles on their water craft? (via Sports by Brooks) *(Well, okay, Steve Spurrier shirtless is much worse. But the fact that Les Miles looks reasonably fit in this pic is a Freudian nightmare to no end.) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Is Texas A&M home to college football's six-man tag team champions?

Is Texas A&M home to college football's six-man tag team champions?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 23, 2011

Rivals.com's Mike Huguenin came up with his list of the twelve best offensive trios in college football. He calls them "triplets," but I like to be a little more macho around here and calls them "college football six-man tag team champions." In what could come as a surprise to some, Texas A&M's team of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Cyrus Gray, and wide reciever Jeff Fuller come out on top ahead of higher-profile teams like Oregon (tied for twelfth with Stanford), Oklahoma (fifth), and Ohio State (second). His reasoning? "A&M was on this list last season - but with a different quarterback. Jarrod Johnson ended up losing his job to Tannehill midway through last season, and A&M really took off after that. Gray shared carries with Christine Michael last season, and they will do so again this season. It wouldn't be a surprise to see those two combine for around 2,000 yards. Fuller is overshadowed in the Big 12 by Blackmon and Broyles, but he still is one of the top 10 receivers nationally. He is coming off a 72-catch, 1,066-yard, 12-TD performance in 2010." Texas A&M surprised many last year by nabbing a one-third share of the Big XII South title last year.  Whether it can build on this next year will have to be seen. And Tannehill, Gray, and Fuller will probably have to develop more as both individuals and as a unit if the Aggies want to jump ahead of Oklahoma, which is projected by many as being in the BCS title game.

Image of Michigan "retro" jersey is leaked to the media.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 20, 2011

The image on the left shows what the Detroit Free Press claims is an Adidas prototype of the "retro" jersey the Michigan Wolverines will be wearing when they face Notre Dame in the first-ever night game held at Michigan Stadium. The Fighting Irish is reported to be equipped with helmets emblazoned with shamrocks. Conjecture by Matt Hinton is that the jersey is based on one by Michigan in the 19th century, which was apparently sleeveless with a long-sleeved striped shirt underneath. This modernized version has striped short sleeves, of course. This doesn't  completely eliminate the nightmare scenario that Adidas will combine this jersey with a maize and blue-striped long sleeved compression shirt. Be afraid, Wolverine Nation, be very afraid. (via Detroit Free Press, Dr. Saturday,  Rivals.com) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Another Auburn player has been arrested on vehicle-related charges. Running back  Onterio McCalebb was arrested on charges of driving an "unregistered vehicle." It does seem that the vehicle was his, though, as opposed to the one four Auburn players were accused of stealing earlier this year, which broke the Fulmer Cup. McCalebb was also "unable to provide a valid driver's license," which sounds more like something a Georgia player would do. (via CBS Sports) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles
