Big Tentacles: Rich Rodriguez, Wisconsin swag, and more

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 17, 2010

Help, I'm slipping into the Twilight Zone. Michigan fans are frustrated over the still uncertain future of Wolverine head football coach Rich Rodriguez. (Maize n Brew) Upon further review. The Big Ten might be reconsidering those "Leaders" and "Legends" division names. (ESPN) Send lawyers, guns, and money. Iowa wide receiver Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, facing charges of possession of cocaine, marijuana, and prescription drugs without the perscription, has hired a prominent Iowa attorney to handle his case. (Rivals.com) Moc-up. The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Mocs will be Nebraska's first opponent as a Big Ten Team. (Chattanooga Times Free Press) Swag patrol. Wisconsin players got their chance to check out the Rose Bowl gift suite before a recent practice for the Jan. 1 game is Pasadena against TCU.  Some reportedly used the chance to get gifts for relatives, including recliners for their fathers. (Madison.com) Smuggery will get you nowhere. Not-so-gently mocking of the Pitt and West Virginia coaching situations, from a Penn State point of view.

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC  news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.) Comparing Nick Saban to Tom Izzo. Comparing and contrasting the Alabama head football coach, who once coached at Michigan State to the Spartan's basketball coach. Alabama will play Michigan State in the Capiton One Bowl on January 1.(Detroit Free Press) Comparing Cam Newton to Tim Tebow. Don't. Even. Go. There. (TIMTEBLOG) Cecil Newton named "Anti-Sportsman of the Year." Because Clay Travis says so. (Fanhouse) The cherry on the top of the sundae (or is that the Icedream shake?). A win in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl  is important for South Carolina to cap it's SEC East championship season. (The State) Stallings enshrined. Former Alabama and Texas A&M head football coach Gene Stallings was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame Tuesday night. (al.com) Music City Swag.

Shirts Without Random Triangles: A Ryan Mallett t-shirt? Well, almost.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 8, 2010

It's not quite a Ryan Mallett t-shirt. Which makes it a lot better. Friends of the Program is responsible for the fake Twitter "Summer of Mallett," featuring a hard-living, hard drinking, "Ladies man" who would make Arkansas' most famous son, Bill Clinton jealous. His cross-country summer tour, that eventually landed him in Tiger Woods sex rehab clinic. So what better way to honor Arkansas' trip to the Sugar Bowl than your own Summer of Mallett/Sugar Bowl t-shirt to honor Mallett's "Family Arm?" or his actual throwing arm for that matter.  That's just the front of the shirt. Here's the not-quite politically correct back: And guess what?  It works well with any pair of black socks and sandals. What could be better? Well, maybe a "Summer of Mallett" hoodie, so you could look cool while you're riding on  your scooter. (via Friends of the Program) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 7, 2010

(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big 10 and the teams it not-so-secretly covets.)  Always look on the bright side of life. Michigan State tries to get something positive out of getting snubbed by the Sugar Bowl. (The Detroit News) Not going anywhere. Despite both being look upon as possible head coaching candidates at other schools, Wisconsin offense coordinator Paul Chryst and defense coordinator Dave Doeren look like they're staying put in Madison. (Bucky's 5th Quarter) That uneasy feeling. Michigan struggles with athletic director Dave Brandon's slow as molasses evaluation of whether head football coach Rich Rodriguez keeps his job. (The Detroit News) Oh, presents! A look at the gift swag players can expect at the various bowl games featuring Big Ten schools. I'm sure Illinois players are going to be thrilled at the belt buckle from the Texas Bowl. (ESPN) Who are you? In a teleconference call for the Insight Bowl, Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz was referred to at "Gary Ferentz." (Black Heart Gold Pants) A few small repairs. Off Tackle Empire suggests the Big Ten rearrange the conference schedule to avoid the dearth of meaningful games in some weeks.

Auburn will beat South Carolina in the SEC Championship game. Because Tony Barnhart says go. (Mr. College Football) Last Chance for a Thousand Years. The final Big 12 Championship Game is being played at Cowboys Stadium in  Arlington, Texas between Nebraska and Oklahoma. The Cornhuskers will be looking to take the title with them to the Big Ten next season. (Rivals.com) Or maybe not. Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini believes the Big 12 will add more teams and bring back the Big 12 Championship Game in a few years. (Austin American-Statesman) Hey, we've got a championship game too. Florida State and Virginia Tech square off in the ACC Championship Game. (ESPN) If John Swofford's not happy, then everybody's not happy.

Even Josh Groban is dissing Rich Rodriguez.

Even Josh Groban is dissing Rich Rodriguez.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 4, 2010

It was bad enough when the internet went after Michigan head football coach Rich Rodriguez going emo over Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" at a team banquet. Then the actual media had to get involved with the fun. But then Josh Groban himself had to comment of RichRod's meltdown. Ouch. If you seriously want to use an song for an ego driven moment, however, you have to go with an old chestnut  like Frank Sinatra's "My Way." (Or if your in  a seriously narcissistic mood, Sid Viscous' version.) But if you absolutly, positively have to go emo, here are a few suggestions. "I Will Survive," Gloria Gaynor "Rock 'N' Roll Suicide," David Bowie "My Heart Will Go On," Celene Dion "I Will Always Love You," Either Dolly Parton or Whitney Houston "And I Telling You I'm Not Going," Jennifer Holliday or Jennifer Hudson, or if you must, the Glee version. "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," Diana Ross "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina," Elaine Page (Don't use the Madonna version. You'll just look like a poser) (via Maize and Blue Nation) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

The worst Florida Gator related commercial ever.

The worst Florida Gator related commercial ever.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 4, 2010

I've been trying for days to figure out something witty to say about this commercial for Shands HealthCare,  a health care system affiliated with the University of Florida, but to no avail. It's the commercial equivalent to  The Lost Continent on Mystery Science Theater 3000, with Gator chomping replacing rock climbilg. There's no use explaining it, it just is. This pretty much summarizes the suck that was the 2010 season for Florida Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC  news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.)       Auburn, what is your profession? Auburn's offensive line has been inspired this year by Gates of Fire, a book about the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC between the Spartans and the Persians. Well, what is a War Eagle supposed to read, Jonathan Livingston Seagull? (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) Back in the spotlight. South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier returns to the Georgia Dome for his first SEC Championship since 2001. This time helming the Gamecocks instead of the Florida Gators.

Looking at the new-found appreciation for Wisconsin head football coach Bret Bielema. (Bucky's 5th Quarter) Stay for just a little bit longer. Wisconsin junior running back John Clay should forgo the 2011 NFL Draft and return for his senior season. Because Badger great Ron Dayne says so. (College Football Talk) Hello, I must be going.

A Rich Rodriguez video tribute...from a Michigan State fan.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 3, 2010

Michigan  head football coach Rich Rodriguez was literally weeping  last night during the team's banquet Thursday night. Amidst the tears, Biblical quotes and Josh Groban song lyrics, the embattled coach proudly pronounced that "I truly want to be a Michigan man." The Josh Grobanlsong yrics RichRod quoted were from the song "You Raise Me Up." Faster than you can say "Bo Schembechler," there was a tribute to him on YouTube. Sadly (for RichRod, at least), it was made by a Michigan State fan. But hey, at least somebody supports Rodriguez staying a Michigan man.

"The NCAA got it right in the Cam Newton case."  Because Tony Barnhart said so. (Mr. College Football) This won't end well. The NCAA's Decision on Cam Newton's eligibility creates a bad precedent for the future Cam Newton cases of the world. (The Lady Sportswriter)   Cam Newton is not Reggie Bush. Because Matt Hinton said so. The fact Newton and Bush are in the same sentence for non-on-the-field reason is bad enough. (Dr. Saturday) Needs improvement. Arkansas has a 1-4 record in the Sugar Bowl, and are 0-2 in the Citrus/Capital One Bowl.  Both of which are the most likely spots where the Razorbacks will land this bowl season. (Arkansas Sports 360) Be afraid, Starkville. Miami is looking at Mississippi Head football coach Dan Mullen now that its quest for Jon Gruden  has hit a wall. (The Sun-Sentinel) What does Georgia's defense and a treadmill have in common? They both involve running in place. (Dr. Saturday) Hit the road, Mark.
