Mike Leach's  inspires a "Fat Little Girlfriends" cookbook.

Mike Leach's inspires a "Fat Little Girlfriends" cookbook.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 11, 2011

College football has crossed over into the cooking world multiple times, but this one has to be the both one of the weirdest cases (as well as one of the most politically incorrect) possible. The Fat Little Girlfriends Cookbook has been published by Team Leach, the group of supporters of former Texas Tech head football coach Mike Leach. Team Leach was on Facebook organized after Leach's firing over the incident involving locking player Adam James in an electrical shed.  It's evolved into an online community to the point where it has created a scholarship in the embattled coach's name at Texas Tech for would-be coaches. Now Team Leach has put together the Fat Little Girlfriends cookbook as a fundraiser for the scholarship.  The title inspired by Leach's infamous remark about his player's listening to their "fat little girlfriends." Leach himself has written a forward to the cookbook, where he explained the origins of the idea, and to thank his supporters. "To raise money, a fantastic  woman named Kerry Morrison came up with the idea of putting together this cookbook. That’s when the press conference from the A&M game came up. “Let’s call it the Fat Little Girlfriends Cookbook,” Morrison told her friends on Team Leach. It stuck, and the work on the cookbook began." Sadly, there are no examples of the recipes that are in the book online. There's a joke or two to be made musing on how you cook a "fat little girlfriend," but I won't do it here. The book is available for $20.00, plus taxes, shipping and handling, with the proceeds going to the Mike Leach Scholarship Fund.

Georgia commits five recruiting violations at one Signing Day event.

Georgia commits five recruiting violations at one Signing Day event.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 9, 2011

How do you manage to commit five NCAA recruiting violations at one Signing Day press conference? Pretty easy if you're Georgia. Georgia recruit Ray Drew had former Georgia Players David Pollack and Randall Godfrey appear at his Signing Day press conference. That's apparently a no-no according to the NCAA. But you can at least give UGA credit for (more or less) promptly reporting the violations, unlike certain Jim Tressel a Ohio State head football coach  who will remain nameless. As for Pollack, when asked if this would be the last time he would attend a Signing Day, the former Bulldog legend and current Atlanta radio personality responded with "That's Affirmative."

Nebraska vs. Iowa on Black Friday is a smart move

Nebraska vs. Iowa on Black Friday is a smart move

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 7, 2011

A long talked about part of the new and improved Big Ten schedule is finally coming into fruition. The Universities of Nebraska and Iowa have announced that the two school's football teams will play their first two Big Ten meetings on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 2011 and 2012. For one thing, it continues Nebraska's tradition of playing on Black Friday, giving Husker fans (or at least Husker male fans) a reason to avoid the malls. Furthermore, it keeps the game from conflicting with the the traditional season-ending Big Ten powerhouse meeting of Ohio State-Michigan.Which could come into play with the conference's shyness of playing late season games in the cold Midwest night. The chance of one of the other games played on the same day would be a scheduling nightmare. Especially if one game was played earlier, and was still being played when the late game started. Don't even thing of starting them at the same time. With Nebraska-Iowa on Black Friday, followed by Ohio St.-Michigan game the day after,  the Big Ten has a  terrific one-two punch to end the regular college football season. Given the fact that Alabama and Auburn's  Iron Bowl confrontation is returning to Fridays, it has to be a good thing for the Big Ten.

Great. I had a dream last night where I was being maimed by a playful Mike the Tiger, and now this shows up. It must have been a sign straight from the Gates of Horn out of the Dreaming. The Mad Hatter at the mast of a Mardi Gras float rising up from a cloud of purple smoke. I'd like to see what the masses in Rio do to try to top this one. (And no, having Tom Brady and his alleged "ponytail" show up in town doesn't cut it, Brasil.) The Miles float was a part of the Krewe d'Etat's annual Mardi Gras parade held last Firday. The Krewe specializes in floats that skewer the scandalous people and events of the previous year. The theme this year was "Wild World of Sports," but that didn't stop them from going after targets such as  Lil' Wayne and the state of Arizona's illegal aliens crackdown. This was the parade that also gave us that Brett Favre float you may have heard about.  So expect Charlie Sheen float in the parade next year.  (via SB Nation, nola.com, Deadspin, Friends of the Program, Cajun Boy) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Pro-Auburn group calls for boycot of Scott Moore's radio station.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on March 6, 2011

A group of Auburn supporters is asking the sponsors of  Huntsville, AL. radio station WZZN  to boycott the station for broadcasting a program hosted by Scott Moore.  Moore has appeared on several radio stations around the South claiming to have heard audio tapes that prove Cam Newton's personal involvement with his father's attempts to get money out of Mississippi State for Newton's commitment. The group, called the Never to Yield Foundation, describes itself as being "established to promote the positive image of Auburn University, its students, its alumni and its fans," has posted a blank letter for Auburn supporters to send to WZZN's sponsors asking them to cease advertising with the station. It has posted  the following statement on its website: "WZZN radio host Scott Moore lied. His claims of tapes that incriminate Auburn and Cam Newton have been debunked. Scott Moore is an Alabama fan. His sole purpose is to boost ratings for his show and hurt Auburn in the process. It’s time to stand up against these kind of attacks." The letter claims that Moore and his co-host, William "Redfish" Barger,  as existing "for the sole purpose of elevating their beloved Alabama Crimson Tide by attempting to denigrate Auburn."
