All the folks on Rocky Top get their quarterback controversy from a jar.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on October 26, 2010

It looks like a serious quarterback controversy may be brewing up in Knoxville. Freshman QB Tyler Bray was reportedly getting extra practice with the Tennessee's first-team offense on Monday, while Matt Simms was on the sidelines watching. Simms was noticed limping off the field at the end of practice. Though Bray's stats during his playing time in the loss to Alabama weren't impressive, Tennessee coach Derek Dooley seemed pleased with the progress of the freshman quarterback with the world's most notorious back tattoo. “He got experience,” Dooley said. “I don’t think looking back we would have won the game had we not played him. He put together some nice drives late in the game and didn’t finish them off, which is what Matt did.” As for Simms, he doesn't seem too pleased with sharing playing time with Bray. Saying "Yeah, [coaches] know exactly how I feel about that." Which means that things on Rocky Top might get a little more rocky.

Covering Dixie Like Mildew: Auburn trifecta, Georiga poetry, and Derek Dooley

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC  news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.)     Auburn deserves to be the #1 school in the BCS rankings. Because Chuck Oliver, "The King of College Football" (and Auburn grad) says so. (ChuckOliver.net) Enjoy it while it lasts, Auburn fans. Clay Travis wonders what will happen at Auburn when Cam Newton declares himself for the NFL Draft, and Gene Chizik's offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn gets a head coaching job elsewhere.

Oh no, Derek Dooley didn't just compare the Vols to the Nazis at D-Day, did he?

Oh no, Derek Dooley didn't just compare the Vols to the Nazis at D-Day, did he?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on October 25, 2010

Oh yes, he did. "He (Dooley) assigned UT the role of the Germans, and its weekly opposition as the Americans. "Here comes the boats, they're coming. You have the binoculars, and it's like, 'Oh, my God, the invasion is coming,'" Dooley said. "They call (German Field Marshall Erwin) Rommel - they can't find Rommel. "'What do we do? I'm not doing anything until I get orders,'" Dooley continued, as he pretended to look through binoculars. "'Have you gotten Rommel yet?' "The Americans were the exact opposite. We hit the beach, and we were on the wrong spot. 'What do we do? I don't know, but these guys are firing and we better hide over there and blow some stuff up to get up there.' They weren't looking for (help). That's where we've got to make that transition." Dooley then quickly apologized for potentially offending any Germans." His Hairness is probably going to get a lot of flack for this. On the other hand, he could have used some poorer choices for comparison that would have come off worse. And awkward press conferences are the least of Tennessee's problems, on the gridiron or on the hardwood. (via Go Vols XTra, Deadspin) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Yes that's legendary rapper Snoop Dogg meeting with legendary overrated Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett.  It's a meeting that had to happen. Snoop Dogg smokes pot, and Mallett is a dope. Why would Snoop Dogg want to meet Ryan Mallett in the first place? Maybe it had to do with Mallett's contribution to hip-hop infamy?

What's Chris Petersen thinking this week?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on October 25, 2010

"What? Boise St. got jumped over again in the BCS? Aw, man!" "It was cool seeing Mizzou take down Oklahoma. Sending those plays to Gary Pinkel to use against Bob  Stoops sure did help." "You know what sucks? Boise has a game against Louisiana Tech on Tuesday. And what does ESPN do?Bump us over to ESPN 2 so they can show The World Series of Poker. How lame is that? "There's an all-Pearl Jam station on Sirius/XM? Cool!" "How can Auburn jump ahead of us? Man, I'm beginning to think Cam Newton manlove is going to be worse than Tebow manlove." "I hear George Noory is going to be doing a show on Baylor football. It seems that some people see Baylor in the BCS Standings when Texas isn't is a sure sign of the Apocalypse.  "I'm not rooting for the Giants in the World Series. The reason? All those darn panda hats. Panda hats are stupid. Rangers are better than pandas any day of the week.  I want to be a Ranger.  I don't want to be a panda. Pandas are boring, stupid and boring.

I know what Ricky Stanzi did last summer

I know what Ricky Stanzi did last summer

By Juan Cena in SWRT on October 23, 2010

Spending the summer watching the latest box-office blockbusters (or flops) is de rigueur for most American young men of college age. Iowa's Ricky Stanzi, a.k.a.  America's Quarterback, spent more than enough time watching films as well. Though in his case they were more in the line of Hawkeye opponent's defensive lines than of Iron Man II and Inception. Stanzi decided this summer to spend more time watching game film. The Iowa coaching staff provided him with films of each Hawkeye opponent on the 2010 schedule. To hear Stanzi explain it, there's more to studying game film than just watching the game. “It’s easy to stop and start watching the game and the ball and you’re not even watching what you need to watch,” Stanzi said. “You really need to be in tune when you get into that film room. “It’s definitely a mental exercise. You put the phone away. All the distractions and anything that can take your focus away, and you’re very critical with your eye and you kind of train yourself to do that.” So it seems to have helped. Stanzi's stats have improved this year, to the point where he is the leader in Big Ten pass efficiency, and third in the nation. The extra due diligence studying film is also bound be noticed by NFL scouts and front office personnel when it comes to the 2011 NFL Draft.
