Verne Lundquist Calls Replay As Though It's Live Action

Poor, old Uncle Verne must feel like he's in Groundhog Day. On second-and-four, LSU ran a quick pitch to Jeremy Hill for a loss of two yards. LSU was also penalized for illegal formation. The penalty was declined, setting up a third-and-six. Once everything was settled, CBS showed a replay of the play and Lundquist… » 11/23/13 5:25pm 11/23/13 5:25pm

It's Official: Somehow Florida, Of All Damn Teams, Was Thoroughly…

So the near-impossible has actually happened: The national media and coaches really, truly underestimated Florida this year. 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 9:59pm 11/24/12 9:59pm

Say This For Newly Former Arkansas Head Coach John L. Smith: He Screwed…

The University of Arkansas will not be renewing the contract of interim coach John L. Smith, the university announced today, confirming what everyone and his sister knew the minute then-No. 8 Arkansas lost in Little Rock to Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 8. Smith's team cliff-dove out of the polls, then followed that… » 11/24/12 2:20pm 11/24/12 2:20pm

Losses By Oregon, Kansas State Ensure All-SEC Title Game

Welp, it happened. Kansas State, once thought unbeatable†, loosed the SI-cover-jinx-aided mother of all bedshits Saturday. Call it the revenge of the Southwest* Conference: Texas A&M downs the No. 1 Crimson Tide last week, Baylor (editor's note: LOL) conks the Wildcats this week. This is agonizingly disappointing for… » 11/18/12 1:58am 11/18/12 1:58am

"There Is No Such Thing As Flop!": Watch Les Miles Angrily, Then…

Les Miles goes through an emotional spectrum here that surpasses even the most skilled practioners of the dramatic arts—it's forceful, angry, instructive, happy, endearing, eloquent, then a little angry again, then back to happy—some of these feelings are just plain unidentifiable. They are feelings only Les Miles… » 11/17/12 9:35pm 11/17/12 9:35pm

Deshazor Everett's Name And His Interception To Beat Alabama Are…

As subplots go, the Alabama-Texas A&M game had an unexpected one from the end of the first quarter through the tense final minute: an errant extra point. Up until the decisive few seconds, when a Bama penalty on an Aggies punt killed the dregs of game clock, there lingered the question of whether the huge early lead… » 11/10/12 8:05pm 11/10/12 8:05pm

Auburn Wrests Title Of "Team Everyone Wants To Play" From Arkansas

Arkansas beat Auburn today, which in itself wouldn't be so strange except that as recently as this morning it was reasonable to ask whether Arkansas would ever win another game, ever, ever. The Hogs were a preseason top-10 team that lost f̶i̶v̶e̶ four games—in September. If someone was to cushion the fall, Tulsa… » 10/06/12 7:48pm 10/06/12 7:48pm

Will The Honey Badger Be Playing For LSU Next Season?

Tyrann Mathieu's suspension from LSU wasn't your average suspension. LSU announced their ruling in a mysterious, intentionally opaque press conference, and their reasons for waving goodbye to their best player were never fully divulged. Whatever the reason, the farewell seemed permanent: four days after the press… » 10/03/12 4:15pm 10/03/12 4:15pm

Gunner Kiel's Mom Recommits Him To Notre Dame

Gunner Kiel, the No. 2 high school quarterback prospect in the country and the only quarterback prospect who was probably named to one day be a top quarterback prospect—your time has passed, Colt McCoy—has decommitted from LSU, where he'd planned to enroll this week. Instead, Young Gunner heeded his mother's advice,… » 1/17/12 3:50pm 1/17/12 3:50pm
