Brian Bosworth Had A Real Nice Time At The xx Concert

You probably remember Brian Bosworth as the crazy linebacker with weird hair who was good in college but sucked in the NFL and once got trucked by Bo Jackson. Regardless of what you know about The Boz, though, you probably wouldn't expect him to be the kind of guy who sends tweets like this from The xx concert: » 2/13/13 5:45pm 2/13/13 5:45pm

Baylor Fan On Crutches Stormed The Field After Upsetting Oklahoma

Lost in the madness of the actual game was this female fan and her loyalty, dedication and love for Baylor football. At great personal risk, she swung her way across the field to take part in celebrating Baylor's stunning upset of Oklahoma. It must have been exhilarating for her and everyone else who took part, for… » 11/20/11 10:50am 11/20/11 10:50am

USC Wins Hypothetical Playoff According To Vegas Odds


Leave it to Las Vegas to sate all our needs. Even those we didn't know we had before. (I'm looking at you midget escort service.) Everyone knows that the idea of a playoff is so awfully complicated that it would require a Manhattan Project-level commitment before anything could happen. Or, you know, a sports book… » 12/09/08 2:45pm 12/09/08 2:45pm

College Football Roundup: The Big 12 Meets the SEC


It's Oklahoma and Florida for the BCS Title—an imperfect end to a season when no football team was perfect. Except, you know, Utah and Boise State. But they don't really count. What with their small conferences and even smaller media markets and exposure. The BCS is fair and impartial. Except, you know, this is a… » 12/08/08 12:30pm 12/08/08 12:30pm

College Football Preview: Why Conference Championships Suck Edition


Of all the ridiculous aspects of the BCS system, the conference championship game pisses me off more than any other because it points out the flagrant hypocrisy of the college presidents. In the same time period when they've fought a college football playoff because of the time it would add to the season, they've… » 12/05/08 1:00pm 12/05/08 1:00pm

College Football Roundup: Every Game Counts...Except When They Don't…

Oklahoma beat Oklahoma State late Saturday night 61-41. This score was enough to vault the Sooners ahead of Texas in the BCS Standings and, as a result, send them into the Big 12 Title Game against Missouri courtesy of the fifth tiebreak. (The sixth tiebreak was, in a nice nod to BCS totalitariianism, "Who does Kim… » 12/01/08 1:45pm 12/01/08 1:45pm

College Football Preview: In-State Rivalries Take Center Stage


Texas beat Texas A&M 49-9 yesterday. They're now 11-1. But unless you were in Texas you had no idea this game was happening. Even I didn't think to check this score until late Thursday night. That's because I spent Thanksgiving with family. Included in part of my day was a trip to Ford Field to watch the Titans… » 11/28/08 12:00pm 11/28/08 12:00pm

College Football Roundup: At Least You Don't Live In Michigan Edition

Yesterday I landed in Detroit for Thanksgiving. Our first stop upon arriving was an Italian restaurant where my wife's grandmother was celebrating her 80th birthday. I'm standing at the bar watching the the Titans-Jets game on the television and occasionally a sports fan from Michigan wonders by to see what's on the… » 11/24/08 12:00pm 11/24/08 12:00pm

College Football Preview: I've Got a Crush on Mike Leach

I've got a crush on Mike Leach. I don't want to go on a date and eat cheese fries with him and watch planes take off from Lubbock or anything but I'm not going to pretend I don't like him anymore. We aren't in 8th grade. So I'm coming clean. My football team, the Tennessee Vols, has never had a coaching search in my… » 11/21/08 12:15pm 11/21/08 12:15pm

College Football Roundup: Mommas Don't Bring Your Babies to Neyland

Just a tip, don’t ever try and take a baby into Neyland Stadium. No matter how old the kid (ours is less than nine months old and was sleeping in a baby bjorn on his mom’s chest). Babies have to have tickets to Neyland too. I have no idea why the University of Tennessee would have this policy. Especially since two of… » 10/20/08 1:30pm 10/20/08 1:30pm

College Football Roundup: Carnage Came and Carnage Conquered

For those of you who emailed and asked whether the bearded guy in the orange shirt on the sideline at UT-Georgia was me. Yep, it was. There's a refined sense of pleasure in being a fan and watching your team suffer a drubbing from the sideline. I think I spoke about five words the entire game because I was afraid of… » 10/13/08 1:00pm 10/13/08 1:00pm

College Football Preview: Texas and Oklahoma Is At NOON (EST) You Drunk…

The biggest week of college football games comes at a good time. Your stocks are tanking, summer is fading, you may or may not get fired in the newest round of layoffs, and you're thinking about getting an MBA or going to law school but you're not sure whether it makes sense to take out the student loads. As if that… » 10/10/08 1:30pm 10/10/08 1:30pm

College Football Roundup Week 5: The Saga of Destroyed College Gameday…

Each week more signs appear behind the stage at ESPN's College Gameday. Some are original and funny (Knowshon Crossing sign with his leaping outline), some are entirely inside jokes (let's make a sign with our friend's name on it and hold it up for three hours early in the morning), and some are deemed offensive and… » 9/29/08 1:30pm 9/29/08 1:30pm
