Let the speculation on Cam Newton's Wonderlic test performance commence!

Let the speculation on Cam Newton's Wonderlic test performance commence!

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 14, 2011

Yes, Virginia (and Auburn), people are already taking predictions on how now-former Auburn quarterback Cam Newton will do on the NFL's Wonderlic test. In fact, EDSBS has gone so far as to open up its own predictions thread over the matter. Of course, the obvious jokes are making the rounds too, as Drew Magary tweeted "I assume Cam Newton believes the Wonderlic is some kind of envelope sealing contest." To be honest, I'm more interested with what Ryan Mallett does on the Wonderlic. Well, I'm actually more interested in what his fake Twitter avatar, @SummerofMallett, has to say about it. It's sure to be something closer to the NSFW line than necessary. (via EDSBS) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Cam Newton enters the NFL Draft

Cam Newton enters the NFL Draft

Cam Newton is leaving school a year early and is entering the 2011 NFL Draft. Least. Shocking. Event. Ever. Seriously, who didn't see this coming. Dr. Midnight could see this one coming even without his infra-red goggles. Just get prepared for all the lame comments from bloggers and commenters ready for those ever original "but I thought he already went pro" snarky comments.

 (Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big Ten and the schools it not-so-secretly covets.)      I'll Stick Around? Denard Robinson will probably not transfer from Michigan with Brady Hoke at the helm. (MGoBlog) As for Tate Forcier? He is apparently an ex-Wolverine. (The Detroit Free Press) Laying it on the line. The Hoke hire puts Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon's legacy (and probably his job) on the line. (Detroit Free Press) An offer he can't refuse?

Penn State's victories over Michigan State and Illinois have helped make the start of conference play chaotic. (Hammer and Rails) Purple Reign. Northwestern defeated Iowa 90-71 in only the Wildcats third win against the Hawkeyes at Carver-Hawkeye Arena since 1946. (Chicago Tribune). Identity crisis? After Michigan State's overtime victory over Wisconsin, the Spartans may have figured out who they are as a basketball team this season. (Detroit Free Press) We're (almost) Number One! Florida State's upset victory over Duke sets the stage for Ohio State to become the Number One team in the country. (ESPN, BT Powerhouse) Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

Randy Edsall to Maryland?

Randy Edsall to Maryland?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 2, 2011

CSNWashington is reporting that Connecticut head football coach Randy Edsall will be named the new head football coach at Maryland. Apparently nobody in the Terrapins' athletic department watched the Fiesta Bowl last night. Despite Edsall's success with the Huskies, expect this move to be a hard sell to Maryland fans who were hoping for Mike Leach as their team's new head coach.

Know your Freudian nightmare inducing Rose Bowl mascots.

Know your Freudian nightmare inducing Rose Bowl mascots.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 1, 2011

Ah, the Rose Bowl Game. Or, to give it's full title, The Rose Bowl Game Sponsored by Vizio. If this annual show of football vanity were any more pretentious, it would have to change it's name to an unpronounceable glyph This year's Rose Bowl Game will be notable for two things. One is a rare non-Big Ten-Pac Ten matchup/ The other is the appearance on either sideline by two of the most disturbing mascots known to man.  On one hand, there's Wisconsin's Bucky Badger. At least that's what Wisconsin claims he is. He looks more like a Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh character to me. Either way, he haunts my nightmares, stalking my dreams like some disturbing manifestation of The Corinthian. Just last night he was chasing me through the borders of my shattered dreamscape with a Garden Weasel. Oh the other hand, we have Superfrog, the schimmel shirt wearing mascot of the TCU Horned Frogs. Obviously, someone forgot to tell Superfrog that the 1980's were over. Schimmel shirts worn on their own went out ages ago, and just aren't ready to make a comeback. To be honest he doesn't look like a frog at all. He looks more like Doomsday, the monster alien that killed Superman (he got better), than a frog. Either way, these two critters together ought to scare the living daylights out of Californians and other spectators today, both at the Rose Bowl Game, and in the Tournament of Roses Parade. Don't say I didn't warn you. Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

This just in: Charlie Weis has still not officially taking the job of Florida offensive coordinator. (Orlando Sentinel) Shock of the day. The Mark Richt on the "Hot Seat" stories are have already started after UGA's loss to Central Florida in the Liberty Bowl. (College Football Talk) Mark Richt can't turn Georgia around. Because Jeff Schultz says so. Shut up, Jeff. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) The Arrival. Central Florida's Liberty Bowl win signals its "arrival" on the college football scene, because Mike Bianchi says so. Shut up, Mike. (Orlando Sentinel) Same coach, different school, same result. FSU defeats a Steve Spurrier coached football team...again. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution) No statue of limitations. Alabama head football coach Nick Saban says he doesn't have any news on when his  statue will be completed and installed in front of Bryant-Denny Stadium. (Detroit Free Press) Big shoes to fill. Greg McElroy will be leaving  Alabama with with a "void" in its offense. (Pensacola News Journal) Conspiracy theory. Tennessee actually won the Music City Bowl. There's evidence and everything.

Game Day Goulash: New Year's Day Bowl schedule

Game Day Goulash: New Year's Day Bowl schedule

By Juan Cena in SWRT on January 1, 2011

TicketCity Bowl (12:00 PM ET, ESPN U) Northwestern vs. Texas Tech. Because the old "legendary Cotton Bowl Stadium" wasn't being used for anything else today, and the Wildcats and Red Raiders really had nowhere else better to go. Capital One Bowl (1:00 PM, ESPN) Alabama vs. Michigan State. Alabama will be tough to beat. But "Don't bet against The Dantonio" has just about become a maxim around as much as "Don't bet against The Izzo" has during the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Outback Bowl (1:00 PM, ABC) Florida vs. Penn State. Urban Meyer's last game as coach; and not, - and I do mean NOT! -  Joe Paterno's last game as Penn State's head coach. At least that's their stories, and their sticking to them. Progressive Gator Bowl (1:30 PM, ESPN2) Mississippi State vs. Michigan. I wonder how many Michigan fans think Flo the Progressive Lady would make a better football coach for the Wolverines than Rich Rodriguez. The Rose Bowl Game Sponsored by Vizio (4:30 PM, ESPN) Wisconsin vs. TCU. If the Rose Bowl got any more pretentious, it would have to change it's name to an unpronounceable glyph. Tostitos Fiesta Bowl (8:30 PM ESPN) Connecticut vs. Oklahoma. Because you've got nothing else better to watch until UFC 125 comes on. Originally Pubished at: Shirts With Random Triangles

The saddest New Year's Eve in America just got sadder

The saddest New Year's Eve in America just got sadder

By Juan Cena in SWRT on December 31, 2010

The saddest New Year's celebration in the country has to be the Peach Drop in Atlanta. How sad is it? Imagine every Joy Division song wrapped together in one sorrowful dirge. Now that's sad. Don't believe me? Just watch this video of a past Peach Drop, ye mighty, and despair. That's how sad it is. A sad, pathetic, shadow of the ball drop in Times Square. Only the ATL doesn't even get a lighted spheroid. It gets a somewhat flattened fiberglass peach with spotlights flashed upon. This occurs down in Underground Atlanta,  an albatross around the ATL's neck that no one is willing to just plow over and turn it into something useful like a Wal-Mart. Now imagine this sadness amongst a drunken crowd with the warm smell of colitas rising up through the air. Yeah, I'd rather spend the night at the house too. This year's "celebration" will be a little more sadder than usual, however. "Underground Atlanta has announced that Jackson, along with his mother, Katherine, and other family members will be ringing in the new year at the 22nd annual Peach Drop. In addition to Jackson 5 songs, Jackson is expected to perform two songs from his upcoming solo album, "So Far, So Good." LaToya must have had something better to do tomorrow night.
