New deal for Georgia-Florida game still being worked on.

New deal for Georgia-Florida game still being worked on.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 12, 2010

The contract to keep the Georgia-Florida game in Jacksonville still hasn't been signed yet. Not that the World's Largest [CENSORED BY DR. EVIL MICHAEL ADAMS] will be going anywhere this year. This year's game is still under the old agreement. But the new deal to keep the game in Jacksonville through 2016 still needs a few i's dotted and t's crossed. But things are going forward and a new deal should be signed by the summer. Which is good for Jacksonville, since the Georgia-Florida game might be the only football game played in the fall there in a few years.(via Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 11, 2010

"Sexy" Lane Kiffin has tweeted on his competition in the Esquire "Sexiest Woman Alive Madness" tournament."Dear Heather Mitts- I tried this with Natalie & Danica...please have all of your friends vote for you in the Esquire Mag contest! Thanks"Why would Kiffin be wanting to help Mitts in this competition. Does he really want to lose such a prestigious title as "Sexiest Woman Alive?" Or he just showing great sportsmanship? Either way, it's up to you to make sure "Sexy" Lane makes it into the Elite Eight.(via Lane Kiffin's Twitter, Esquire)

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 11, 2010

(The Golddomedammerung is a recurring feature of SWRT covering Notre Dame schadenfreude.)Attention Brian Kelly: It's 4:20. Do you know where your tight end is? If the tight end in question is Mike Ragone, he might be partaking of the product of a certain three-leafed green plant that isn't a shamrock. Ragone was arrested for possession of marijuana after being pulled over for driving over the speed limit by the Indiana State Patrol. A state trooper found two bags of pot in the purse of Ragone's female passenger. Ragone and the passenger were charged with misdemeanor possession due to the small amount of marijuana involved.No word yet as to what punishment from Notre Dame Ragone might get, but don't be surprised if Kelly makes him an ex-tight end.(via Dr. Saturday, The Journal-Gazette)

It looks like it hasn't taken long for ESPN to find a new title sponsor for the Orange Bowl. Reports say Hershey's is close to signing a deal for the title-sponsorship of the once-proud bowl game in Miami. This comes after Fed-Ex balked at ESPN's demands to remain as sponsor.The game will reportedly be called the Reese's Orange Bowl. Which kind of makes sense, since Reese's is known for its orange packaging. It's also appropriate for Miami since Reese's Miniatures are as addictive as crack.(via Leather Helmet Blog, College Football Talk)

Dawgageddon: Could Mettenberger end up playing for Tennessee?

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 11, 2010

(Dawgageddon is a recurring feature of SWRT covering UGA schadenfreude.)The latest twist in the Zach Mettenberger saga could have him becoming a recurring nightmare for Mark Richt and Georgia. According to an interview with the disgraced QB, Mettenberger mentions several schools that have shown interest in him, despite that nasty business in Valdosta."Mettenberger tells kelinjohnson.com that he’s had heavy interest and calls from other colleges and universities, including the University of Tennessee, USC, Texas A&M, UK, Troy State, Memphis, and Colorado, and that a number of schools have been calling to get the scoop on Mettenberger from Bulldog Offensive Coordinator, and former winning UGA quarterback Mike Bobo."After sitting out a year, Mettenberger could quite possibly have four chances to get his revenge on Georgia as a Volunteer. Tennessee, on the other hand, could once again find a way to thumb its nose at Georgia, having already hired Derek Dooley (Vince Dooley's son) as coach. As if beating UGA on the gridiron wasn't bad enough.(via 3rd Saturday in Blogtober, KelinJohnson.com)

He recorded some of the best singles by an American artist in the Sixties, which included "Midnight Special,""Secret Agent Man," "Seventh Son," and the number one hit "Poor Side of Town." He also founded Soul City Records, and produced the 5th Dimension hits "Go Where You Wanna Go" and "Up-Up and Away."Orlando Magic sweep Atlanta Hawks. Hawks start summer vacation.

Big 10 expansion: The voices in your head don't count as relaible sources

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 10, 2010

A radio station in Kansas City claims that the Big 10 have offered invites to five schools for expansion. Those schools are Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Rutgers. The later got the invite after ND declined, so the story goes.So far nobody believes the story, and SB Nation reports Missouri and Nebraska have denied the story. And Black Heart Gold Pants claims a whole different group of schools have been approached...along with Rutgers. Then again, BHGP tends to listen to an entirely different set of voices than the KC radio station does. Though those voices may be entirely more rational ones.(via SB Nation, Sports Radio 810 WHB, Black Heart Gold Pants)

The Philly Phanatic, in his guise as "Lady Pha-Pha" (don't ask) decided to try to get an umpire to join him in a furpile. The result?I guess tasing the Phanatic was out of the question. Even so, the ump should get a huge raise for this.(via The 700 Level)

Les Miles:Expansion? We don't need no steenkin' expansion!

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 10, 2010

Les Miles doesn't think the SEC needs to go the way of the Big 10 and expand. And he expressed his views in the Orlando Sentinel."I don't know that the SEC needs expansion. The fact that they have a pretty good format for a championship game, I think the teams we have are certainly very competitive. When you go to expanding a 12-team conference, what team are you going to bring in that brings with it a strength and a financial package and a strength of following that will add to the conference? Really you're looking at at least two teams you need to bring in. I think that's going to be a difficult order."Miles may have time management issues, but he does make good point or two there. As a whole, the SEC seems rather complete in itself. (And honestly, if I could trade Clemson to the ACC Miami, Georgia Tech, and FSU don't have the same kind of true Southern flavor you would expect an SEC school to have. Same goes for Virginia Tech or Maryland. Virginia might. But seriously, would anybody want Virginia in the SEC? (Outside of Virginians, of course.)The only true "Southern" school that isn't in the SEC is Clemson. And while expanding the SEC to bring the Tigers in is interesting, there's a good chance most SEC supporters would rather kick another team out instead to let them in. I'd trade South Carolina for Clemson any day of the week.(via EDSBS, Orlando Sentinel)

The Golddomedammerung: ND women's golf team member caught lying about score.

By Juan Cena in SWRT on May 9, 2010

Notre Dame golfer Annie Brophy has been disqualified from the NCAA women's golf Central Regional for unsportsmanlike conduct. Specifically, she lied about here score. Brophy reported a 30 on the front nine at Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus, Indiana. Kyle Lynne Veltri, assistant coach at ND figured that score couldn't be true and reported it to officials. The officials approached Brophy at the 14th hole to tell her of her disqualification. Nice to see the commitment to integrity carries on under the Gold Dome.(via Waggle Room, Golfweek)
