I'm still not going to pay $12 to go see her in the newest Adam Sandler bomb of a movie but I don't mind looking at these new Esquire pictures of her. It's only a matter of time before Brooklyn Decker ditches the tennis geek she's with now and upgrades to the blogger geek. Don't worry Brooklyn...I'll keep it our dirty little secret you vixen you.

Well as quickly as the Irish gained a recruit in Chase Hounshell they lost their biggest recruit today when 5 star defensive end Stephon Tuitt called Brian Kelly and told him and his staff he would be staying local and head to Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech, led by recruiting coordinator Andy McCollum, pulled off the biggest last-minute switch in Yellow Jacket recruiting history on Tuesday afternoon.
McCollum has been working newly minted five-star defensive end Stephon Tuitt for years, and all that hard work finally has paid off.
Tuitt called Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly and decommitted from the Irish. He has committed to Georgia Tech and head coach Paul Johnson. Monroe Area head coach Matt Fligg confirmed the switch.
"We talked a lot the last two or three days, and I told Stephon he needed to do what was best for him. The big hold up was he didn't want to be known as a decommitter," Fligg said. "This afternoon we called Notre Dame together and let them know that he is no longer committed there. Then we called head coach Paul Johnson and informed him Stephon would be a Yellow Jacket."
Tuitt was worked over into flipping to Georgia Tech thanks to high school teammate Demontevious Smith who just recently received his first major offer this past week from none other than Georgia Tech. Smith convinced Tuitt that staying local would be in his best interest and that playing in Al Groh's defense would suit him well. Tuitt is the most highly regarded prospect to commit to Georgia Tech in the past 30 years. He is the #1 prospect in the state of Georgia and also is rated the #2 defensive end in all the country.
Groh's defense last year was horrific so expect Tuitt to start right away. Pretty much as soon as he steps foot on campus he will be their best player. Props go to coach Paul Johnson and his staff for getting his high school buddy to get him to switch. All is fair in love and recruiting.

Talk about a reversal of fortune for two programs. Back when Charlie Weis was coaching Notre Dame Urban Meyer would routinely steal recruits from the Fighting Irish at the last minute (Justin Trattou, Omar Hunter). It was a matter of routine for Urban to tear out the hearts of Notre Dame recruiting fans and eat it. You pretty much expected it.
Moving along to the present we now have Notre Dame stealing Florida recruits. Massive offensive tackle Chase Hounshell had been committed to the Gators for over 6 months but all it took was an in-home visit from head coach Brian Kelly and position coach Ed Warinner just a day after Will Muschamp and his Gator crew visited to get the kid to flip. In other words Kelly and his staff are just straight up stealing house money at this point.
If you are a Gator fan you should be worried about Muschamp and Weis coaching your team. Neither one of them has proven themselves as a head coach and it appears recruits are starting to take notice too. Meanwhile Kelly and his staff continue to get top notch prospects and convince them to either flip to them or stay committed. It's probably because Kelly is a proven winner who no matter what kind of talent he had on his roster he would continue to win. If you are a Notre Dame fan you shouldn't be on the fence anymore with Kelly as the coach. He knows what he is doing. If you are Gator fan I would be really worried.
Karma is a bitch.
