Your Moment of Tebowness: Haircut update, plus Lou Holtz on His Tebowness

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 10, 2010

 (Your Moment of Tebowness is SWRT's recurring feature on the cultural phenomenon that is His Tebowness. Everyone else is doing it, so why can't I?)  Tim Tebow apparently now looks more like a Marine recruit than a Franciscan monk now after buzzing the "rookie hazing haircut" given to him by Bronco's veterans. That or a member of the St; Louis Cardinals (they seem to have a surplus of bald white guys on the roster).  No photos yet of Recruit Tebow yet, but they're bound to show up. Meanwhile, Lou Holtz had a few glowing words about His Tebowness. “(Community service) is part of his life,” Holtz said. “I know him very well. I’ve never dealt with a more polite, humble, accommodating individual than Tim Tebow. When you first meet him you think he has to be a phony, but he’ll be that way in five years. It’s just his infectious attitude.” (via USA Today, Denver Post)

Big Tentacles: Iowa, Joe Paterno, Wisconsin, and...Rutgers?

  (Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big 10 and the teams it not-so-secretly covets.)  Brandon Wegher's mysterious "Leave of absence." Iowa running back Brandon Wegher has reportedly taken a leave of absence from the Hawkeyes. This is causing a lot of speculation among Iowa fans.

He was nominated by Pennsylvania  Representative Glenn Thompson. (GoPSUsports.com) John Clay for Heisman? Scott Tolzien might not be the only Heisman candidate on the Wisconsin roster. Running back  John Clay could  have a chance at the trophy as well.

Rivals.com disses Ricky Stanzi, and with in doing so, disses America

Rivals.com disses Ricky Stanzi, and with in doing so, disses America

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 10, 2010

Rivals.com seems to have it out for Iowa's Ricky Stanzi today. On one hand, Tom Dienhart calls Stanzi the Big Ten's "Most Overrated Player." On the other hand. Matt Hinton refers to Stanzi as "the picture of mediocrity." This despite admitting that Stanzi is "indispensable" to the Hawkeye's chances of winning. Memo to Rivals: When you diss Ricky Stanzi, you diss  Ameirca. If Dienhart and Hinton have a problem with him, fine. There's a plane heading off to Communist North Korea waiting for those dirty Godless commies. 'Cause as the Manzi himself said "If you don't love it, leave it!"

Navy Ensign unhappy with Romosexual-related call sign.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 9, 2010

 Navy Ensign Steve Crowston has been temporally reassigned from his regular duties after filing a workplace harassment complaint over being given the call sign "Romo's B***h," a reference to his being a Dallas Cowboys fan. That, along with other inflammatory gay references. Well, it could be worse. He could have gotten the call sign "Jessica Simpson." (via Navy Times, Military Times, SB Nation)

Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Alabama vs Michigan? Florida St., Virginia Tech

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 9, 2010

 (Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.)     Alabama vs. Michigan in Dallas? Nothing's written in stone yet, but a neutral site match-up between the Tide and the Wolverines might happen in Jerry Jones Heathen Temple to His Own Avarice Cowboys Stadium in Dallas in 2012. (al.com) Jimbo Fisher drops the hammer on Jarmon Forston. FSU wide receiver Jarmon Fortson has been dismissed from the team for failing a drug test and for  "multiple attitude and behavioral problems throughout his two years in Tallahassee." (Tomahawk Nation) One less pizza bowl.  Papa John's will not renew its sponsorship of the The Papajohns.com Bowl in Birmingham.

Gobbler Country looks at how then Fresno State running back  (and current San Diego Charger) Ryan Matthews was able to break through Boise State's defense last year to score three touchdowns, and ponders if Virginia Tech's Ryan Williams can do the same in the Hokies' season opener against the Broncos. Sadly for the Hokies, Fresno St. lost that game. (Gobbler Country) Should Georgia be worried about Florida this year? Probably. (Dawg Sports)

Apparently the idea for "Party in the UGA" wasn't an original one. This has to be the work of the North Avenue Trade School. (via Shakin' the Southland)

Your Moment of Tebowness: Tebow's

Your Moment of Tebowness: Tebow's "rookie haircut," Plus Will Leitch professes his manlove for His

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 8, 2010

(Your Moment of Tebowness is SWRT's recurring feature on the cultural phenomenon that is His Tebowness. Everyone else is doing it, so why can't I?) Yeah,  I know.  Tebow got a haircut in training camp. (via  Shutdown Corner) Interesting note: The Broncos canceled practice Sunday. Possibly so Tebow could get time to find a Great Clips that could handle his "haircut malfunction."And so Josh McDaniel and the Denver Broncos front office could handle angry calls from Nike and Jockey. (via Denver Post) Your Tebow quote of the day. Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned this ESPN quote about Tebow? "ESPN has a half-serious comparison between Tebow and Washington Nationals wunderkind Stephen Strausberg. In comparing the rookies' eye color (both blue), Tebow gets the advantage because "Tebow's eyes appear blue in photographs, but in person you see whatever color you want, much like looking through a prism or into a waterfall." This may be the weirdest or most disturbing Tebowism ever. (ESPN)" Well along comes Will Leitch, writing for the Denver magazine 5280, with may just top it. "Look at Tim Tebow. Look at all of his 6-foot-3-inch, 245-pound All-American frame, his cropped hair tousled just so, his Roman nose, his eyes. Yes, those eyes, the ones that so famously sit atop the eye black emblazoned with scripture. Look at Tim Tebow, arguably the best college football player of all time, the man who now wears number 15 for the Broncos (which just happens to be the fastest-selling rookie NFL jersey ever), and ask yourself this: What does this guy know that we don’t?"  Just by reading it you can hear Leitch quietly working his challenge to Dan Shanoff for a cage fight  to the death for the rights to owning the number one mancrush  on His Tebowness.

"Party in the UGA" has a Facebook page? "Party in the UGA" has a Facebook page.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 8, 2010

It had to happen. Like all good Internet phenomenon, the now-infamous "Party in the UGA" YouTube clip has it's own Facebook page. The good news is that the page currently only has 66 who like it. The bad news it that it has 45 more Facebook who like it than the SWRT Facebook group has members. That's kinda humbling there, C'mon and join, gang! We gotta make amends here.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 7, 2010

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.)        Tennessee being investigated by the NCAA?  All signs point to the NCAA looking into Lane Kiffin's shenanigans at Tennessee, about six months or so after the rat left the ship. As usual. (Chattanooga Times Free Press) Tennessee, meet Miami. The NCAA is also investigating whether “impermissible text messages and telephone calls to prospective student-athletes.” violates NCAA regulations. Sadly, The "U" can't blame any ex-coaches on this one. (Yahoo! Sports) More bad news for the Vols. Or at least Vols with any fashion sense. Tennessee's sense of style is about to take a turn for the worst.  Loud Mouth Golf,  notorious for outfitting  the Norwegian Olympic curling men's team and sponsoring  John Daly, will be creating golf wear for the Vols.  According to Daly, the company will be making “check-pants, shorts, shirts and skorts.” Didn't Tennessee suffer enough with Lane Kiffin? (Larry Brown Sports) John Brantley needs a nickname. Tim Tebow's successor as Florida QB needs a nickname, says Alligator Army.  Shouldn't Brantley actually accomplish something on the field first? (Alligator Alley) "Party in the UGA" on Attack of the Show?" "Party in the UGA" on Attack of the Show." Click here to watch. I'd post it here if it didn't have a segment where a word you wouldn't say in front of Mama was repeated over and over again. Or if Olivia Munn was involved (which she wasn't, dangit!) (From the Rumble Seat) At least Dawg fans can take the joke, and run with it. Dawg Sports  revealed other SEC school's orientation videos. Here's the best one: "Ole Miss won't be doing an orientation video this year. Right after Jeremiah Masoli transferred in the laptop with the script and music mix on it disappeared." (Dawg Sports) Things worse than Vanderbilt football. Anchor of Gold's "Schadenfreude Fridays" goes back 1980's New Jersey and Action Park, which "closed down in 1996 after only six deaths, hundreds of thousands of injuries, and millions of amazing stories."
