Arkansas, Cal, and Florida fans will have to wait till next week when we reveal some new shirts designed for them exclusively. But this week we have two new shirts.

The first one is called "College Football Saturday The Holy Day". We made it for all the College Football fanatics out there. Nothing is better than Saturdays in the fall and we wanted to have a shirt that anybody who loves the sport like we do could wear.

It comes in three colors: red, navy, and football brown.

And for all the Irish fan's out there, we have just introduced a new "The Four Horsemen 2007" t-shirt in both dark green and navy. If you literally bleed Irish like I do this shirt is a must get. Take a look:

All shirts are $17 with a portion of all sales going to the American Cancer Society. We hope you enjoy our shirts as much as we enjoy making them and wearing them.

Only 7 more days till college football kickoff!

Congrats go out to Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan on their baby girl...wait, there's a penis...

-Apparently the Bruins should go by the Bruises with all their injuries this summer. Coach Karl Dorrell has recently had some issues with depth in their offensive backfield due to the injuries and has switched a couple of defensive guys to the running back position to see how they react. As of right now the only two healthy tailbacks are Chris Markey(C0-MVP of team last season) and Kahlil Bell.

Also it appears Sportscrack preseason All-American defensive end Bruce Davis is injured and is not participating in contact drills. If the Bruins want to be serious contenders for the PAC-10...wait a second, this is UCLA. If UCLA wants to win 10 games this season they are going to need to get healthy fast.

-The guys over at Blue-Gray Sky have a really good breakdown on the Notre Dame rushing attack this season. It would appear on paper the Irish have a ton of depth and talent in their backfield this season with "The Four Horsemen" in Armando Allen, James Aldridge, Robert Hughes, and Travis Thomas all possessing the ability to make a splash in South Bend this season. Whether or not they have the right QB to hand it off to them will dictate how well they do this season along with stopping people on defense.

-Eric Zeier has been named as Larry Munson's replacement as color analyst for Georgia's road games. You will never find a guy to replace Munson, who is a legend in college football broadcasting, but it sounds like Zeier could one day replace him. I'm not a Georgia fan but I love Munson because of his enthusiasm, his distinct voice, and calls like this he brings to the great game of college football...

-Oregon State's sensational receiver and punt returner Sammie Stroughter is taking some time off to address personal issues. It's good to see kids like Sammie take things to heart and knows what really is important in their life despite all the recent losses. With that being said I hope he finds himself in sound mind to come back and play this season because he is a very important part of the Beaver offense (leading PAC-10 receiver last season). I would believe the people who are closest to him would want him to get back to what makes him happy: scoring touchdowns against USC!
My obvious reason why Stroughter should come back this season.

-Apparently the Orange Bowl is really old and decaying. The Miami Hurricanes will move to Dolpin Stadium starting in 2008 and leave despite an offer of more than $200 million from city officials to renovate. By renovate they of course mean to throw in all of Michael Irvin's cocaine money he left behind after being drafted by the Cowboys.

Not an exact science by any means, but I must say I'm shocked how many people voted for Georgia to win the SEC East. The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party has been dominated by the Gators (15-2 since 1990)and although they have lost their starting QB in Chris Leak and a lot of their defensive starters from their National Championship team they do have Tim Tebow back along with a ton of young talent ready to step up. Of course Georgia could win the SEC East but they do have a ton of question marks including the two true freshmen who will be starting on the offensive line starting September 1st against Oklahoma State.

Here is the voting breakdown:
Florida 5 (20%)
Tennessee 3 (12%)
Georgia 13 (54%)
Kentucky 1 (4%)
South Carolina 2 (8%)

So there you have it Sportscrack nation. Now go ahead and make a vote for who you think will match up with the Bulldogs in the SEC Championship.

P.S.-I still think Florida will win the SEC East.
