Ryan Mallett at a Walmart? Ryan Mallet at a Walmart

Ryan Mallett at a Walmart? Ryan Mallet at a Walmart

By Juan Cena in SWRT on February 1, 2011

The football Axis of Evil Walmart, Dr. Pepper, and the BCS came together once again this past weekend when former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett did a signing at a Walmart Supercenter in Bentonville, Arkansas. At least Mallett signing at an Arkansas Walmart makes more sense than the BCS trophy being displayed in Alabama Walmarts, as Bentonville is the headquarters of Wally World. Do you really think the Walton family's would let him sign at a mall? Or worse - a Target?  The cool thing about this one was that Razorback fans got Ryan Mallett's John Hancock for free. As opposed to Gator fans, who had to pay $160 to get Tim Tebow's autograph last year. (via Friends of the Program) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Former Vol QB Tee Martin gets a job promotion at Kentucky.

Former Vol QB Tee Martin gets a job promotion at Kentucky.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 31, 2011

Tee Martin may have helped win Tennessee the mythical National Championship that it didn't win with Peyton Manning at the quarterback helm, but as of late he's been helping rival Kentucky win football games as a wide receivers coach. The hard work seems to be paying off, as Wildcat head football coach Joker Phillips has given Martin a promotion to passing game coordinator, along with a contract extension and a raise. It's a sign Martin is moving up in the coaching ranks, and it's not going unnoticed. Martin was reportedly being looked at by Alabama to be the Tide's wide receiver coach. The way things are going, you might be seeing Martin as a head football coach in the next few years.

Urban Meyer is an ESPN analyst.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 31, 2011

If you would have told me four months ago that a then-SEC coach would be named an ESPN analyst by the end of January, 2011, I would have put my money on it being Mark Richt. As it is, the fates have a funny way of weaving their threads together. Richt is still at Georgia, and it is Urban Meyer, who's  become the newly minted analyst at the World Wide Leader.  According to ESPN, Meyer "will work weekly regular-season games during the season, as well as providing studio analysis on ESPN's "College Football Live" and "College GameDay. " He'll make his debut as an official WWL employee during ESPNU's coverage of Signing Day on Wendsday, Feb. 2. There's no word yet if this means Meyer will be keeping this office on the Florida campus. or if he'll have to give it up as it could be considered  a conflict of interest. Then again, the network could just do like FOX and turn it into a studio for him to work out of. (via ESPN) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Former Georgia head mens' basketball coach Hugh Durham was asked recently about his thoughts on Tennessee head football coach Derek Dooley and his father, former Georgia head football coach Vince Dooley. According to  Durham, His Hairness was more prepared for the Tennessee job than his father was for Georgia. Considering that the senior Dooley is winningest football coach in UGA history, that is saying a lot. (via Go Vols Xtra) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Insane rumor of the day: Ralph Friedgen as Georgia offensive line coach?

Insane rumor of the day: Ralph Friedgen as Georgia offensive line coach?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 28, 2011

There are rumors and then there are rumors. The one that started swirling around Thursday night about former Maryland head football coach Ralph Friedgen heading to Georgia to be offensive lines coach , however, is a doozy that ranks near the one about Jamie Lee Curtis' extra, uh, plumbing. A tweet from Football Rumor Mill suggested Friedgen was "one of 3 candidates" to take over the job recently vacated by Stacey Searels, who left to become OL coach at Texas. This seems totally out of the air, with only the fact that Friedgen follows Mark Richt on Twitter giving it any possible credence. Dawg fans still remember the days when Friedgen was the offensive coordinator under George O'Leary at Georgia Tech, when the Jackets beat the Dawgs three years in a row from 1998-2000. So it would be sweet irony if this story did turn out to be true. (via SB Nation, Dawg Sports) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Is Brady Hoke burying the hatchet with Michigan high schools?

Is Brady Hoke burying the hatchet with Michigan high schools?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 27, 2011

To say that Brady Hoke has a lot of damage to fix at Michigan may be an overstatement. Even though many people believe Rich Rodriguez turned the Wolverine football program into a disaster area, he did manage to have a winning season in 2010, and the program seemed to have bottomed out. One big problem RichRod did have, apparently, was a poor relationship with Michigan high school programs. The Detroit Free Press reports how Rodriguez alienated some high school coaches by recruiting players outside The Great Lakes State, quoting ESPN's Tom Luginbill, who said "“The state of Michigan doesn’t necessarily produce year in and year out the style of player that Rich Rodriguez wanted. So he went elsewhere and I think that damaged some relationships that needed to be repaired." Lunginbill claims this was a reason RichRod was let go. Hoke's work to repair the bridges Rodriguez burned seems to be ahead of schedule. He has already gotten six comittments to Michigan in the short time he's been on the job.

Houston Nutt's son is ready for his close-up

Houston Nutt's son is ready for his close-up

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 26, 2011

Houston Nutt III may have been a bust as a football player, but that's not stopping the son of Ole Miss' head football coach from trying to make it on the silver screen. Nutt is one of the stars of the low-budget $25K, which is described by director Billy Chase Goforth as "homage to 70's southern drive-in films." The plot involves bail bondsmen who "encounter drug runners, corrupt cops, and other trouble when they find a treasure map promising $25,000." In other words, good old-fashioned exploitation movie fun. Judging from the movie poster, it seems that Nutt may have been cast as much for his looks than for any acting ability. But you can find out for yourself when the film screens at the Oxford Film Festival on February 12, or when it goes direct-to-DVD soon after.
