Man, College Was Awesome: Your Clemson-FSU GameDay Sign Roundup

It's once again time for the Saturday afternoon tradition of oak-tag-and-sharpie bons mots. Today we are back in Death Valley where Clemson hosts Florida State this evening on ABC. Before we get to the signs, I'd like to just take a moment, for the adults here, to reflect on how fucking radical college was: look at… »10/19/13 12:48pm10/19/13 12:48pm

Any chance that wasn't the case evaporated as the Gators ripped off 24 straight points near the end of their 37-26 win over rival Florida State, a team that spent nearly the entire season in the… »11/24/12 9:59pm11/24/12 9:59pm

Florida State Didn't Cover Against Savannah State Because They Played With A Running Clock And Ended The Game Halfway Through

Yesterday, we talked about Savannah State football throwing itself on the altar of an increased budget for the school's athletic department; today, we see the absurd fallout that can result from a cupcake game no one is particularly invested in. The Tigers had been slaughtered 84-0 by Oklahoma State the previous week,… »9/09/12 10:15am9/09/12 10:15am

The Savannah State Athletic Director Sure Does Hate His Football Team

Or least that's the way it looks in the short-term. Partly as an investment in the future, Savannah State has offered itself up as a cupcake to far better teams this season, and has proven itself thus far a rich, artisanal cupcake, with delicate pink frosting and cinnamon accents. The program's first loss of the… »9/08/12 9:15am9/08/12 9:15am

What Is On The Syllabus for Florida State's Class On How Not To End Up Like Bobby Petrino?

The course is named "Issues in Sports Management," or perhaps more accurately "How To Avoid Crashing Your Motorcycle While Joyriding With A Younger Female Employee Who Is Not Your Wife."
