Ole Miss star offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil started this season on the sidelines. He’ll end it having scored a touchdown in what’s yet another blowout major bowl game, as the Rebels took a 34-6 lead into the locker room. The trick play even got our Russian announcer friends excited:
I find myself hypnotized by this seemingly innocuous crowd shot from last night's Sugar Bowl, in which the lady at the center of the frame silently comes to some sort of world-shattering realization. What's going on in this lady's head?!
We've heard Michael Connolly's version of the events that lead to Bama Mom leaping onto a group of Oklahoma fans and into our hearts, but now we finally have Bama Mom's side. Most importantly, she wants to apologize to Nick Saban.

In case you've forgotten, the Nokia Sugar Bowl is this evening as Charlie Weis and his group of underachieving Irishmen take on those ESPN fictional national champions, the LSU Tigers. Notre Dame is getting 8.5 points tonight and I've got a funny feeling that's a number that you must pounce on. (For those of you who…
