"Sexy" Lane Kiffin: The last stand?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 17, 2010

Lane Kiffin is still making headway in the fight for his life against Heather Mitts in the Esquire "Sexiest Woman Alive Madness" Sweet Sixteen, but it may not be enough. Mitts still leads 57%-43%. Why has Kiffen struggled this round. Well, it turns out that Mitts went to Florida. It figures.It almost the point of no return for Kiffen, vote now, or he'll just have to console himself with that reported $4 million a year deal with USC.(via Esquire)

How to make a FSU  football poster

How to make a FSU football poster

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 17, 2010

Want to know what it takes to make one of those snazzy-looking football posters? Old Hat Creative, who are responsible for the 2010 FSU football poster, made a video of what went into its creation. As you can tell, it's a lot of blood, tears, toil, and photoshop.And the finished product?It's interesting to see how the title of the poster went from "Days of the New," to "The Uprising, " to the pretty generic and kind of lame "Committed." Somebody must have remembered that Days of the New were the only band of the late Nineties that sucked worse than Creed.(via Tomahawk Nation)

WAR LAMENESS!!! Tiger fans won't be hearing Justin Beiber in the fall.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 17, 2010

Apparently Spencer Hall's attempt to influence Auburn's choice in songs for the intro video for football games has been squashed. It's hard to tell at the moment if the call EDSBS readers to write in Justin Beiber's "Baby" simply didn't get enough votes, or officials at Auburn nixed it for being a nefarious attempt at internet mischief. Either way, the dream is over.(via EDSBS)

Fraking lasers, how do they work? Happy 50th birthday to the laser

May 16 marks the 50th anniversary of the invention of the laser. Or to be more precise, the first successful testing of the laser. Without it, where would Dustin Pedroia be?Since its creation, the laser has found many uses in society. Like torturing cats with laser pointers.I'm sure the laser's inventors would be pleased.(via Yahoo! News)

Oh Snap! Moment of the Day: Don't Stop Belivin' edition

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 15, 2010

So Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, Blondie's Debbie Harry, Lady Gaga, and Dame Shirley Bassey (of the Goldfinger title song fame) got on stage together at a for Sting's Carnegie Hall benefit concertRainforest Fund. Guess what song they picked to sing?It's kind of hard to think less of at least five of the biggest legends in music history (plus Lady Gaga), you I almost do. (And no, that's not a dis at the song. It's on my iPod, for cryin' out loud!)Also, it's hard sad to see that Debbie Harry just hasn't aged well (Lady Gaga take note). Compared her to Dame Shirley, who looks awesome, and she's 73.What's even worse, six of the world's biggest stars sing "Don't Stop Belivin'," and it can barely hold a candle to this:And oh, how I so wish Journey and Steve Perry would mend their fences. Journey going on tour with that Arnel Pineda guy reminds me too much of Chandler Bing's dad leaving his mom for the house-boy for some reason.(via New York Times.

Cleveland willing to embarrass itself to keep LeBron James

Cleveland willing to embarrass itself to keep LeBron James

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 14, 2010

As the "Will LeBron James leave Cleveland" saga reaches its nauseating anti-climax, the sad attempts at getting him to stay are kicking into full steam. Sadly, this includes the way-too predictable attempt to get James to say with a song. And what sadder way to do record one than with a "We Are the World" rewrite complete with alleged Cleveland "celebrities."EMBED-We Are Lebron Video - Watch more free videosWhat's sad is that there are several politicians in this group, including at least one senator and the Governor of Ohio. The fact that politicians are willing to commit political suicide with their involvement with this shows how sad this whole situation really is in Cleveland.(via Deadspin)

It's the only Tennessee-related thing you'll see here today.ACC related Big 10 expansion silly talk of the day.

"Sexy" Lane Kiffin update: Still down but not out.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 14, 2010

The good news is that "Sexy" Lane Kiffin has picked up ground in his Esquire "Sexiest Woman Alive Madness" matchup with Heather Mitts. The bad news is that he still lags behind Mitts, who leads with a 59%-41% advantage. "Sexy" Lane still needs your help, so vote now. It'll be a better use of your time than Spencer Hall's attempt to mash Auburn up with Justin Beiber.(via Esquire)

WAR LAMENESS!!! Auburn needs your help picking out music

WAR LAMENESS!!! Auburn needs your help picking out music

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 13, 2010

Auburn is asking fans to vote on the song to be used for 2010 inrto video song on its website. The school picked a sundry group of possible songs ranging from the hip and current (30 Seconds to Mars "Vox Populi,") to the tired and clich├ęd (Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." Ha Ha). At least Auburn had the taste to include "Hero," by Skillet in the mix, if only to give the Christian rock fans something to vote for. It'd be hard to not to vote against that one, though.Of course Auburn did give "fans" the chance to nominate their own choices. Because as Dream of the Endless once said, "What could possibly go wrong?"Enter Spencer Hall (aka the blogger formally known as Orson Swindle), who is calling on EDSBS readers to write in "Baby" by Justin Bieber. Needless to say this is may be the dirtiest attempt of internet skulduggery since Colin Cowherd got his listeners to cause The Big Lead to crash.Seriously, don't be talked in to performing a stunt like that. As funny as the phrase "War Beiber!" might sound, any such shenanigans just aren't worth it in the end. Just vote for the Skillet and go on your merry way.(via EDSBS)

Ole Miss has announced that Boise State will be coming to Oxford for the Rebels and Broncos first ever meeting on the gridiron in 2011. This is a perfect matchup. On one hand, the Ole Miss fanbase are known for their love of cowbells as noise makers during the game. As for Boise State...Yep, I went there. I wonder if she'll still be in school by then.(Ole Miss Sports)
