Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Chris Rainey health update, and a lot of questions

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 11, 2010

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.)    Chris Rainey health update. The Florida freshman running back is reported to have undergone a "non-invasive cardiac procedure."He's expected to return to practice later this week. (ChuckOliver.net) What could stand in the  Mississippi hosting the SEC Baseball Tournament? The Confederate battle emblem on the Mississippi state flag, that's what. (Atlanta-Journal Constitution) Better defense: ACC or SEC? Tony Barnhart brings the facts, but doesn't really try to answer the question. (Mr. College Football) Will Virginia Tech win the ACC this season?  Rivals.com's experts unanimously pick the Hokies to win the ACC title this season. Georgia Tech might have something to say about that, however. (Rivals.com) The worst helmets in the ACC? The same survey splits the vote for worst helmet between Miami, Boston College (two votes), and Wake Forest (one vote). The votes for "The U" might be due to anti-Miami sentiment. And apparently, the plainness of BC helmets doesn't go down too well.  BC Interruption, who obviously didn't take the results so well, nominated Maryland (and it may have a point) (Rivals.com, BC Interruption) As for the best helmets in the ACC? Florida State won hands down. (Rivals.com) Who will be Tennessee's starting QB? Matt Simms seems to have the edge over Tyler Bray. (Go Vols XTra)

Your Moment of Tebowness: Tebow's "new" new haircut

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 11, 2010

Here's the "new" new-look Tim Tebow He shaved off the "friar-tuck" look to go with the basic shaved head. He's kept the scruffy beard he's been growing since he became a pro. though. Probably because he didn't want to completely look like an extra in Full Metal Jacket.  (via Yahoo! Sports)

Urban Meyer sends people to the doctor

Urban Meyer sends people to the doctor

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 11, 2010

One of the results of the health scare that briefly caused Urban Meyer to resign his position as Florida head coach in late 2009 was that Meyer ordered his staff to get their own physical check-ups. What Meyer might have not expected, however is the number of people who had their own health checked out as a reaction to his medical problems. "I've had ridiculous amounts of correspondence or people who have, because of what happened, said, 'You know what, I'm going to get checked out,'" Meyer said. "I made our staff; it's nonnegotiable. We're going to take this day and we're going to take care of some business here." A lot has been said and written over Meyer's health issues. It's nice to see that it resulted in some people seeing the doctor when they may not have done so in originally. (via ESPN)

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)

By Juan Cena in SWRT on August 10, 2010

  (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. (jb's sports blog, Black Heart Gold Pants) JoePa nominated for Medal of Freedom. Penn State's Joe Paterno has been nominated for The Presidential  Medal of Freedom, America's highest civilian honor. 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. (Bucky's 5th Quarter) Big Ten QB's compared to Brett Favre, but not in a good way.  "Brett Favre-isms: The 10 College QBs With The Best Favre Characteristic" includes Terrelle Pryor as "The Biggest Media Starle," and Ricky Syanzi as a "Big Partier."

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 is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.)     Alabama vs. Michigan in Dallas?

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."

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)
