Derek Dooley joins past Tennessee coaches on Vols' home game tickets

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 21, 2010

Derek Dooley may not have his image immortalized  upon the edifice of  the refurbished Neyland Stadium next to that of General Robert Neyland yet, but he does join the General on the tickets to this season's home games for Tennessee. His Hairness and the General join five other past Tennessee coaches to be honored on the Vols'  2010 home game tickets. Dooley's comes first, for the opener  against Tennessee-Martin on September 4. Other coaches honored on the tickets include Johnny Majors, Bill Battle, and Phillp Fulmer, accompanied by one of General Neyland's maxims. Fulmer, by the way, appears on the ticket for the home game against Alabama (Insert your own comment here). And no, genius, Lane Kiffin didn't get his face on a ticket. (Go Vols Xtra)

Bad agents making Nick Saban angry. Don't make Saban angry. You won't like him when he's angry. (Mr. College Football). Don't make Tony Barnhart mad, either. "You have made Nick Saban mad and you’ve screwed up the first day of SEC Media Days, which is nothing short of a Southern holiday in this part of the world. It is not to be messed with and you, my friend,  have just messed with it." (Mr. College Football).  Questions that you won't be hearing at SEC Media Days, but should. Includes asking Mark Richt "Would it have killed you to invite Damon Evans to team ping pong/ice cream night?" And asking Urban Meyer about Clay Travis' virginity. (Dawg Sports)  Picking on Marvin Austin. A look at the the center of the UNC agent mess through the lens of Austin's own trail of tweets and images. (StateFans Nation)  Boston College's recent record against first-year coaches. The record is 19-3 in the past decade. That includes wins against Rich Rodriguez (West Virginia), Mark Richt (Georgia), and Paul Johnson (Navy). Interestingly, one of the three losses also comes against Paul Johnson at Georgia Tech. (BC Interruption) Speaking of Paul Johnson, here's part two of that massive Paul Johnson interview. An interview so awesome, it had to be broken down into four parts to keep the public from spontaneously combusting in the site of its awesomeness. (ACC Sports Journal) From the Golden State to the Sunshine State. Five star recruit Chris Martin (linebacker/defensive end) will transfer  from California to Florida.  Martin felt being too close to his hometown of Oakland, CA. was a distraction.(Only Gators Get Out Alive) Virginia Tech down two players for Boise State game?

Kyle Parker to return to Clemson for the fall

Kyle Parker to return to Clemson for the fall

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 21, 2010

The Clemson Insider is reporting that Kyle Parker will be returning to Clemson this fall to play football. Negotiations between the Colorado Rockies, who drafted Parker in this year's MLB Draft failed to secure a deal to exclusively play baseball by the Parker family's deadline of July 20. Talks reportedly will continue for a deal where Parker will play both football and minor league baseball in the Rockies' farm system. A public announcement will reportedly be made by Parker on Wednesday. (via The Clemson Insider, Shakin' the Southland)

ESPN: It's not crazy, it's irresponsible

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 20, 2010

The latest in ESPN's "It's Not Crazy, It's Sports" commercials features NASCAR haulers for rivals Carl Edwards and  Brad Keselowski getting involved in a little bit of non-sanctioned racing. It's bad enough ESPN is promoting illegal highway racing with 18-wheelers. It's a whole different matter that one of the  big rigs is for  NASCAR driver Carl Edwards, whose car is sponsored by an Aflac, an insurance company. Is this speeding on the highway kind of thing Aflac really wants to be associated with?

Leave it to the University of Texas to come up with their own brand of bottled water. The water, called he H2Orange is described as being "Texas Purified" to achieve optimum purity and taste." It comes in a bottle in the shape of the famous University of Texas Tower, which marks the first time the Tower has been used for licensing in such a manner. Proceeds from sales of H2Orange will go to raise money for "academic scholarships, fellowships and internships." (via University of Texas at Austin, EDSBS)

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 20, 2010

(Covering Dixie Like Mildew is the SWRT roundup of SEC and ACC news, with the occasional pesky Southern school from another conference)        Parity in the SEC.  Parity? What parity? (Dr. Saturday) Preseason Coaches All-SEC team. First team features Alabama's Mark Ingram, and Julio Jones (his mama named him that), Georgia's A.J.Green, and (sigh) Ryan Mallett. (The Red and Black) Will he or won't he? Kyle Parker still hasn't signed his deal with the Colorado Rockies yet. He still could be starting QB for Clemson this season. Or maybe not. (The Herald) Tony Barnhart has more SEC Media Day questions. Boy, the SEC coaches are gonna hate Mr. College Football's guts by the end of the week. (Mr. College Football) Media bias in UNC scandal? An NC State blog complains about the lack of coverage of the NCAA's investigation of UNC's football team by The News and Observer.  (Riddick & Reynolds) Schadenfreude wears a hob-nailed boot. Rocky Top Talk's "20 Losses in 20 Years" countdown continues with #3 and the 2001 loss to Georgia, famous for Larry Munson's "We just stepped on their face with a hob-nailed boot and broke their nose! We just crushed their face!" call. Needless to say, Dawg fans would probably rate this one a little higher. (Rocky Top Talk) An interview with Paul Johnson. Interviewing the Georgia Tech coach is an event so massive that it takes four parts. Part One is here. (ACC Sports Journal) Charlie Strong is a chicken...sandwich.  The Champions Sports Bar & Grill in Lousiville has put the "Charlie Strong UL-timate Chicken Sandwich" on its menu to honor the new Cardinal head coach, formally the Gators' defensive coordinator.

The clock is ticking on Kyle Parker's college football career

The clock is ticking on Kyle Parker's college football career

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 19, 2010

The Kyle Parker era at Clemson may be ending by tomorrow. Or by the end of the week. Or maybe not. There was reportedly a Tuesday deadline for Parker to make a decision on whether he would sign with the Colorado Rockies and leave Clemson early, or stay with the Tigers for another season. Parker reportedly wants to go with the former, but contract negotiations are hampered by the size of the signing bonus. The Rockies reportedly want to pay a $1.3 million bonus, Parker and his team of negotiators want twice as much.) There could be something signed this week, but then again, it could be next week before Parker's future is clear. Meanwhile, Clemson is probably hoping the clock Parker and the Rockies are using is the one Daniel-Striped-Tiger used as his home in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe...the one without any hands.  (via College Football Talk)

Georgia Tech takes their obsession with white jerseys to a whole new level.

Georgia Tech takes their obsession with white jerseys to a whole new level.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 19, 2010

While most college football teams wear their white jerseys on the road and school colors at home, Georgia Tech likes to do  the reverse. That was until Wake Forest decided to punk Tech last year and refused to go along with the scheme (via some kind of arcane ACC regulation). Well this year the 'Jackets have come up with a way to avoid that from happening again. Their home and away jerseys will both be white. It seems that the gang down at the North Avenue Trade School think they've outsmarted the rest of the ACC. One tip fot GT: If your going to use girls to model your new jerseys, you've got yo make sure they look good wearing them. It looks like somebody had the bright idea to have the models wear shoulder pads under the jerseys. Bad idea.  These girls look seriously frumpy. (From the Rumble Seat,  Uni Watch)

Rivals.com falls for months-old LSU April Fools Day Joke

Rivals.com falls for months-old LSU April Fools Day Joke

By Juan Cena in SWRT on July 19, 2010

 Rivals.com., which included this little gem in its July 14 team report on LSU. "• Don’t adjust your TV sets this fall when LSU plays in Baton Rouge. The Tigers have announced plans to install purple Field Turf in Tiger Stadium, following the lead of Boise State and the University of New Haven in having stadium turf in school colors."The “eye of the tiger” will remain at midfield and SEC logos will be at the 25-yard lines. The problem is that the story was fake. An April Fools' joke. And Rivals turned out to be the fools who fell for it.  It's one thing for a website to fall for an April Fool's joke. It's another if it falls for the joke three months after April 1. (via Rivals.com, And the Valley Shook)

NCAA's investigation of UNC heads south? The NCAA is reportedly now looking at allegations that South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders for "possible impermissible dealings with a sports agent." This is a development  coming out of the ongoing NCAA investigation. (The State) Who is LSU biggest rival? Uh, good question. (Team Speed Kills) Hutson Mason has David Greene's number. UGA has issued freshman Quarterback Hutson the number #14, previously worn by "beloved" quarterback David Greene. Why just not put a bullseye on his back?
