Randy Edsall to Maryland?

Randy Edsall to Maryland?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 2, 2011

CSNWashington is reporting that Connecticut head football coach Randy Edsall will be named the new head football coach at Maryland. Apparently nobody in the Terrapins' athletic department watched the Fiesta Bowl last night. Despite Edsall's success with the Huskies, expect this move to be a hard sell to Maryland fans who were hoping for Mike Leach as their team's new head coach.

Know your Freudian nightmare inducing Rose Bowl mascots.

Know your Freudian nightmare inducing Rose Bowl mascots.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 1, 2011

Ah, the Rose Bowl Game. Or, to give it's full title, The Rose Bowl Game Sponsored by Vizio. If this annual show of football vanity were any more pretentious, it would have to change it's name to an unpronounceable glyph This year's Rose Bowl Game will be notable for two things. One is a rare non-Big Ten-Pac Ten matchup/ The other is the appearance on either sideline by two of the most disturbing mascots known to man.  On one hand, there's Wisconsin's Bucky Badger. At least that's what Wisconsin claims he is. He looks more like a Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh character to me. Either way, he haunts my nightmares, stalking my dreams like some disturbing manifestation of The Corinthian. Just last night he was chasing me through the borders of my shattered dreamscape with a Garden Weasel. Oh the other hand, we have Superfrog, the schimmel shirt wearing mascot of the TCU Horned Frogs. Obviously, someone forgot to tell Superfrog that the 1980's were over. Schimmel shirts worn on their own went out ages ago, and just aren't ready to make a comeback. To be honest he doesn't look like a frog at all. He looks more like Doomsday, the monster alien that killed Superman (he got better), than a frog. Either way, these two critters together ought to scare the living daylights out of Californians and other spectators today, both at the Rose Bowl Game, and in the Tournament of Roses Parade. Don't say I didn't warn you. Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

This just in: Charlie Weis has still not officially taking the job of Florida offensive coordinator. (Orlando Sentinel) Shock of the day. The Mark Richt on the "Hot Seat" stories are have already started after UGA's loss to Central Florida in the Liberty Bowl. (College Football Talk) Mark Richt can't turn Georgia around. Because Jeff Schultz says so. Shut up, Jeff. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) The Arrival. Central Florida's Liberty Bowl win signals its "arrival" on the college football scene, because Mike Bianchi says so. Shut up, Mike. (Orlando Sentinel) Same coach, different school, same result. FSU defeats a Steve Spurrier coached football team...again. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) No statue of limitations. Alabama head football coach Nick Saban says he doesn't have any news on when his  statue will be completed and installed in front of Bryant-Denny Stadium. (Detroit Free Press) Big shoes to fill. Greg McElroy will be leaving  Alabama with with a "void" in its offense. (Pensacola News Journal) Conspiracy theory. Tennessee actually won the Music City Bowl. There's evidence and everything.

Game Day Goulash: New Year's Day Bowl schedule

Game Day Goulash: New Year's Day Bowl schedule

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 1, 2011

TicketCity Bowl (12:00 PM ET, ESPN U) Northwestern vs. Texas Tech. Because the old "legendary Cotton Bowl Stadium" wasn't being used for anything else today, and the Wildcats and Red Raiders really had nowhere else better to go. Capital One Bowl (1:00 PM, ESPN) Alabama vs. Michigan State. Alabama will be tough to beat. But "Don't bet against The Dantonio" has just about become a maxim around as much as "Don't bet against The Izzo" has during the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Outback Bowl (1:00 PM, ABC) Florida vs. Penn State. Urban Meyer's last game as coach; and not, - and I do mean NOT! -  Joe Paterno's last game as Penn State's head coach. At least that's their stories, and their sticking to them. Progressive Gator Bowl (1:30 PM, ESPN2) Mississippi State vs. Michigan. I wonder how many Michigan fans think Flo the Progressive Lady would make a better football coach for the Wolverines than Rich Rodriguez. The Rose Bowl Game Sponsored by Vizio (4:30 PM, ESPN) Wisconsin vs. TCU. If the Rose Bowl got any more pretentious, it would have to change it's name to an unpronounceable glyph. Tostitos Fiesta Bowl (8:30 PM ESPN) Connecticut vs. Oklahoma. Because you've got nothing else better to watch until UFC 125 comes on. Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Alabama defense coordinator Kirby Smart says that he has not talked to new Florida head football coach Will  Muschamp about a coaching the Gator's defense.

The saddest New Year's Eve in America just got sadder

The saddest New Year's Eve in America just got sadder

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 31, 2010

The saddest New Year's celebration in the country has to be the Peach Drop in Atlanta. How sad is it? Imagine every Joy Division song wrapped together in one sorrowful dirge. Now that's sad. Don't believe me? Just watch this video of a past Peach Drop, ye mighty, and despair. That's how sad it is. A sad, pathetic, shadow of the ball drop in Times Square. Only the ATL doesn't even get a lighted spheroid. It gets a somewhat flattened fiberglass peach with spotlights flashed upon. This occurs down in Underground Atlanta,  an albatross around the ATL's neck that no one is willing to just plow over and turn it into something useful like a Wal-Mart. Now imagine this sadness amongst a drunken crowd with the warm smell of colitas rising up through the air. Yeah, I'd rather spend the night at the house too. This year's "celebration" will be a little more sadder than usual, however. "Underground Atlanta has announced that Jackson, along with his mother, Katherine, and other family members will be ringing in the new year at the 22nd annual Peach Drop. In addition to Jackson 5 songs, Jackson is expected to perform two songs from his upcoming solo album, "So Far, So Good." LaToya must have had something better to do tomorrow night.

(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big Ten and the schools it not-so-secretly covets.)  Promises, promises. According to Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel The Buckeye players involved in "Tatgate" had to agree to return next season and serve their suspensions, and not enter the NFL Draft in order to play in the Sugar Bowl. Hope he got that written in blood. It probably still won't work even then. (Rivals.com) Hyperactive. Injured Michigan cornerback Troy Woolfolk was so wired in training camp he reportedly kept his roommates awake doing things like pushups and brushing his teeth. No wonder he got injured in camp.

Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl (12:00 PM ET, ESPN) Army vs. SMU. No word if the Army Mule will be at the game, but if it does, let's hope Army keeps better track of it than Air Force did with its Falcon at the Independence Bowl. New Era Pinstripe Bowl (3:20 PM ET, ESPN) Kansas State vs. Syracuse. Why this game isn't called the Yankee Bowl I'll never know. Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl (6:40 PM ET, ESPN) North Carolina vs. Tennessee. Time to see if Tennessee's Tyler Bray can handle himself in a bowl game.  Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl (10:00 PM ET, ESPN) Nebraska vs. Washington. The game would have been a lot more interesting if it were last year when Ndamukong Suh played for the Huskers, and Jake Locker still was relevant.

Gus Malzahn headed to Maryland?

Gus Malzahn headed to Maryland?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 30, 2010

It's only just chatter on Twitter right now, but Track 'Em Tigers is reporting that Auburn offense coordinator Gus Malzahn may be close to being named the new head coach at Maryland. The source of this story is from Chris Level, the Publisher of RedRaiderSports, siting sources close to former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach, another much-talked about candidate for the Terrapin head coaching job. There's nothing from the reliable sources about this story yet, but Malzahn to Maryland would make logical sense. He's the real brains behind Auburn's success this year. He's a less combustible candidate than Mike Leach, who still has that electrical shed thing still hanging over his head. Not to mention a still-in-progress lawsuit involving Leach's former employer, Texas Tech.   (via Track 'Em Tigers) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles
