Here are some direct quotes from Urban Liar after today's loss to Michigan in the Capital One Bowl in which he completely throws some of his players under the bus, runs over them, and makes sure to back up in the process. This is from the

"We thought we had some answers early in the season," said Meyer, "and some of those young guys didn't live up to the standards we've set. Our goal is to be the New England Patriots of college football."

"Well, for those guys who just put in their time and didn't make any real contributions, it's time for you to go. It won't be hard to say goodbye to some of those guys who just went through the motions. Now for those kids who actually bought into the program, and who made some sacrifices and contributions -- you know, like Bubba Caldwell....he's a graduate of UF and had a great career -- you'll really miss those guys. But just because you're a senior doesn't mean you have any value."

It's good to know that the players who don't cut it in Meyer's eyes are viewed as garbage and a waste for Florida's program. I couldn't imagine playing my ass off for a guy like that who basically tells you to go fuck off because you don't play as well as Tim Tebow or Percy Harvin. It's one thing to go to the player and tell him you want more out of him but it is a whole other thing to kick a guy on their way out and tell them they don't have "any value" to your program.

Congratulations Urban! You are the current #1 horse for biggest dick in college football for 2008.


While I think it was pretty idiotic for the NHL to schedule this game during all the January 1st bowl games, I must admit that I turned it on and watched a lot of the game on NBC. Seeing hockey played outside in the snow is right up there with watching midget pudding wrestling in Mexico. Okay, maybe the pudding makes it a little more arousing to some but you get my point. If you don't go to Juarez to the Pequeno Midgeto Cantina. It's worth the tequila and the ensuing blackout.

I've been going back and forth on this game more often than a drunk with a weak bladder but have finally come up with a solid prediction. In the one corner you have the crazy Island people who love to surf and catch the sun while playing with some of the best offensive players in the country including a quarterback who has shattered numerous NCAA records on the way to a perfect 12-0 season. In the other corner you have the laid back Georgian team which outfits athletes at every position who come into the Sugar Bowl contest as one of the hottest teams in the nation thanks to the outstanding play of RB "Special K"nowshon Moreno.

We know the Hawaii offense can put up a lot of points with June Jone's Run n' Shoot offense but will they be able to handle the depth the Dawgs bring into the game that can essentially wear them down in the latter stages of the ball game?


The Dawgs are going to come out with their ears pinned back early in the game and will constantly blitz to see how the Hawaii offense adjusts to their stunts. Whether or not Colt Brennan can pick up the blitzes will determine how long Hawaii "hangs" in this game. Brennan has had nagging injury problems throughout this season and I can see one coming up soon.

The other quarterback on the field, Matthew Stafford, will look to stay away from the costly turnovers a young QB is prone to have in a big bowl game. With numerous starts under his belt and his confidence growing, Stafford should have a decent game when all is said and done. RB Thomas Brown will step up to team with Moreno to provide a potent running attack that will keep the ball out of the hands of Brennan and company.

In what will be an up and down first half with plenty of scoring in the SuperDome, the Dawgs will simply out muscle and out man a Hawaii team with aspirations of winning their first BCS game in the second half.


It's 2008 and it's time to get some college football predictions out of the way. So put down the Natty Light and put away the glass sculpture you sexual deviant and take a peek inside these picks.

WISCONSIN VS. TENNESSEE: Erik Ainge will finally play his last game of what seems like his 30 year career for the Vols. Too bad he again chokes the chicken during clutch time.
Prediction: Wisconsin 31 Tennessee 20

MISSOURI VS. ARKANSAS: D-MAC'S last game for the Razorbacks should be a memorable one for himself personally. Unfortunately for the Razorback faithful a game without a head coach is a lame duck team for the most part. Chase Daniel makes himself an early favorite for the 2008 Heisman.
Prediction: Missouri 42 Arkansas 28

MICHIGAN VS. FLORIDA: Seriously, how in the fuck's name did Lloyd Carr win the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award? That is like giving an Oscar to Brendan Fraser. This is a classic SEC vs. Big Ten battle in which Michigan is totally overmatched.
Prediction: Florida 31 Michigan 17

TEXAS TECH VS. VIRGINIA: I really don't give a shit and could care less about watching these two teams play.
Prediction: Texas Tech 42 Virginia 31

ILLINOIS VS. USC: This match up blows donkey dick but those rich pricks at the Rose Bowl committee get their desired wet dream of a Big Ten vs. Pac-10 game. The Fighting Zooks will give it their all but the Killing OJ's will wear them down with their borderline good/great defense.
Prediction: USC 24 Illinois 10
