The SEC Really Does Benefit From Media Bias In Polls

This past week, four of the top five teams in the Associated Press College Football Poll hailed from the SEC West Division.

No, ESPN Didn't Accidentally Leak Nick Saban As The New Texas Coach

Saturday's Iron Bowl Gets The Wacko Taiwanese Animation Treatment

The Taiwanese studio Next Media Animation, which will animate pretty much anything nowadays, have offered their calculatingly bizarre take on this weekend's Auburn-Alabama rivalry game. Come for the players attacking a giant panda, stay for the Toomer's Corner oaks being destroyed (again) by urine and nuclear waste. » 11/29/13 2:50pm 11/29/13 2:50pm

Here's Pete Maravich Giving Alabama Fans The Double Bird

According to the Reddit user who uploaded this wonderful GIF, this is Pistol Pete unloading both barrels on the Alabama student section after a game in 1970. They probably deserved it. » 11/20/13 6:50pm 11/20/13 6:50pm

Rolando McClain Got Arrested Because He Shouted "Fuck The Police!"

Upon signing with the Ravens earlier this month—for no guaranteed money—linebacker Rolando McClain called it "a move that can’t go wrong." After being arrested in Decatur, Ala., last night—his third arrest there in 17 months—perhaps the only foolproof contract is one with a clause that doesn't let him go home. » 4/22/13 8:41am 4/22/13 8:41am
