(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big Ten and the schools it not-so-secretly covets.)  The Safety Dance. Former Iowa safety Tyler Sash is listed by Rivals.com as one of  "Five safeties to watch at the combine." (Rivals.com) Patriot Games. America's Quarterback, Ricky Stanzi, prepared for the NFL Combine by working out with Tom Brady's personal quarterback coach, Tom Martinez. (The News-Herald) Pouring water on an already drowned man.

Life just isn't getting any better for Harvey Updyke.

Life just isn't getting any better for Harvey Updyke.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on February 23, 2011

The bad news for accused Toomer's Corner poisoner Harvey Updyke: He's reportedly living in his car after the owner of the house he was renting in Alabama kicked him out asked him to leave, apparently fearing for his own safety. Updyke apparently can't even afford a van to live down by the river in. The even worse news: Updyke is on his fourth attorney,  as two previous court appointed attorneys cited connections to Auburn as conflicts of interests with representing the accused tree poisoner, and another asked to be removed because he just couldn't  get along with him. The worst news: Clay Travis is apparently the only attorney in America who really wants to represent Updyke.

Is Judment Day coming for Tennessee?

Is Judment Day coming for Tennessee?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on February 23, 2011

ESPN reports that Tennessee has received the long awaited notice of allegations from the NCAA over incidents involving the football men's basketball, and baseball programs. The notice is expected to be released to the public later on Wednesday. "The allegations involving the football team go back to Lane Kiffin's turbulent 14 months as the Vols' head coach during the 2009 season, and some of the most serious charges revolve around a trip Tennessee recruiting hostesses took to Duncan, S.C., to see a pair of high school prospects the Vols were recruiting. One of those prospects is current Tennessee defensive end Corey Miller." As for the men's basketball program, it centers around improper recruiting practices directly involving head men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl.  The school will go reportedly before the NCAA  committee on infractions on June 10-11. The men's basketball program will probably get the blunt of the penalties, the football program is not expected to be hit with anything like what the NCAA hit USC with, which is now coached by Kiffin. There is a pretty good chance that Tennessee athletic director Mike Hamilton's job might not survive any sanctions.  (via ESPN, ESPN SEC Blog) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

(Unquiet on the Western Front is SWRT's look at the Pac-12, WAC, Mountain West, and other West Coast/Rocky Mountain schools extravaganza.)    UCLA is lacking in  fundamentals. Better pre-season coaching would help. Somebody other than Rick Neuheiselas head football coach would probably help too. But that's just my opinion. (Bruins Nation) Cal may trot out alternate white helmets for 2011. They should probably ask Georgia how stunts like that work out first. (Sports by Brooks) Meet Shane Skov, the Stanford junior linebacker who might steal a headline or two from Andrew Luck this year. (Dr. Saturday) Stanford's recruiting class is smarter than you. Which will be a good thing for Stanford unless somebody teaches Watson the Jeopardy-winning computer how to throw a thirty-yard pass. (Wall Street Journal) "Tiny" award is a big achievement.

If Utah men's basketball coach Jim Boylen gets fired, it will be due to the lack of consistent when it comes to success on the court. (Block U) Blame it on Steve Jobs. Washington State junior guard Klay Thompson was benched for the first five minutes and 47 seconds of an embarrassing 71-69 defeat to Arizona State for being late to get on the team bus.

The bad news for Georgia and Aaron Murray is that the starting quarterback sprained his ankle in a pick-up soccer game during the weekend. He's walking around the UGA campus on crutches, but should be healed up by spring practice. The good news for Aaron Murray?

Is Appalachian State Conference USA bound?

Is Appalachian State Conference USA bound?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on February 21, 2011

Southern Pigskin is reporting on a rumor that Appalachian State is ready to move on up to the FBS, and is looking to join Conference USA. It would be a huge move for the school which got national attention for its upset victory over Michigan in 2007. The main roadblock in the move is that C-USA would have to apparently drop a team to make room for the Mountaineers. But is UCF or Memphis make the move to the Big East (which will probably happen sooner or later), someone's going to have to step up and fill the void.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on February 21, 2011

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC  news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference.) Tag teamin'. Gene Chizik and Nick Saban sent out a joint press release condemning the poisioning of  the oak trees of Toomer's Corner. (al.com) Do the Right Thing. A group called Times for Toomer's is raising money to help pay to replace the oaks of Toomer's Corner. (College Football Talk) My Heart Will Go On. Even though the Oaks of Toomer's Corner may not survive, Auburn fans will keep their legacies alive through the tree's seedlings. (WAAY) I didn't do it, no one saw me do it, there's no way you can prove anything! Alabama says that an incident where football recruit Barry J. Sanders and his father (the Barry Sanders) were shown on the jumbotron alongside Nick Saban at a recent Alabama basketball game does not constitute an NCAA secondary violation. (Rivals.com) I can ease your pain. Get you on your feet again.  Tennessee hires Logan Merrit to be an associate athletic trainer. (Go Vols Xtra) Oh no he didn't! A Georgia blogger theorizes that UGA's VI, VII, and VIII were all poisoned by Florida fans irate over the Dawg's "Touchdown Celebration" during the 2007 iteration of the World's Largest (CENSORED BY MICHAEL ADAMS).  Not.

Your Freudian Nightmare of the Night, courtesy of the University of Michigan hockey team.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on February 18, 2011

The University of Michigan hockey team performed a skit spoofing The Price is Right at UM's annual Mock Rock charity variety show, which benifits the school's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital. Warning: this skit features a) A contestant in too short shorts with too high socks, b)  Male hockey players in swimsuits (both male and female kinds) playing Barker's Beauties, and c) Not-so gentle ribbing of former Wolverine quarterback Tate Forcier. Let's all hope that the "Barker's Beauties" didn't suffer any sexual harassment from "Bob" like the real ones (allegedly) did. (And if you want to know more about the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital, click here. Or here, if you want to donate some money for the hospital.) (via MGoBlog) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles
