Mark Richt Reacts To UGA's Cupcake 2012 Schedule

Sept 1 Buffalo Bulls @ home
Sept 8 @ Mizzou
Sept 15 Florida Atlantic @ home
Sept 22 Vandy @ home
Sept 29 Tennessee @ home
Oct 6 @ South Carolina
Oct 20 @ Kentucky
Oct 27 Florida @ Jax
Nov 3 Ole Miss @ home
Nov 10 @ Auburn
Nov 17 Georgia Southern @ home
Nov 24 Georgia Tech @ home

I would be making out like a bandit too if I were Mark Richt. Potentially they might not face a top 25 team all season despite playing in the SEC. You can go ahead and pencil in UGA for the SEC Championship on Dec 1st. The SEC East should be cake next year especially when you don't have to play LSU, Bama, and Arkansas for a 2nd straight year. As Richt is displaying good things happen to good people.

Dayne Crist Transfers to Kansas to join Charlie Weis

Former starting Notre Dame quarterback Dayne Crist has decided to spend his fifth year in college with his old college coach in Kansas. Today via Twitter Crist announced he would be joining new head coach Charlie Weis in Lawrence...

@dcrist10: "After a long & difficult decision making process, I'm incredibly excited to join the Kansas football team. Rock Chalk Jayhawk!"

Crist will immediately compete for the starting position. Rumor is that BYU transfer and former ND target QB Jake Heaps is also transferring to Kansas where he would have to sit out a year. Weis never had a problem getting the top ranked QBs while at Notre Dame so this should come as little surprise. Crist will have one year to make or break a college career that never quite lived up to expectations due to two major knee injuries.

Prediction: Crist will thrive in Lawrence...Kansas will win 5-7 games...Crist will get drafted late in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Great to have Blake Griffin back in the highlights

So the LA Clippers got Chris Paul and Chauncey Billups? How is that even possible? The Clippers are going to be America's Team this season with all the alley-oops and fastbreak plays making the SportsCenter highlight reels.

Here is a nice little underhand scoop from Paul to DeAndre Jordan...

Two FSU Seminoles aka Criminoles Arrested

I always save the emails I get from fans of programs who get mad at me for calling Miami the Convicts and FSU the Criminoles because they always insist their programs aren't like that anymore. The Nevin Shapiro case proved that Miami still had a Convict within the program and this week the Seminoles proved they still have enough Criminoles on their team to warrant the label. From the BigLead...

Arrington Jenkins: Freshman linebacker who is redshirt was arrested over the weekend for his alleged part in a “vehicular theft.”

Avis Commack: Junior defensive back who played in every game this year was arrested for an alleged theft of an Ipad from the FSU computer lab. A female student said her backpack with Ipad was lifted from the computer lab; Commack said he “found” the ipad. It’s unclear whether or not he’ll play in the bowl game.

Yep. Nothing to see here. FSU clearly runs a clean program with no shady characters on their team. I should just take down these Criminoles shirts immediately.

Tim Tebow and Jesus Make A Saturday Night Live Appearance

Actor Jason Sudeikis pretty much "nailed" (pun intended) the Jesus performance. I'm a little disappointed in the Tebow performance. It could have used more flair. All in all not a bad skit. Not great by any means. I kind of laughed.

Albert Pujols Signs With The Angels...Seriously?

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports is reporting that soon to be 32 year old slugger Albert Pujols has agreed to a 10 year deal for between $250 million to $260 with the Los Angeles Angels.

Holy fucking shit!

This is the second biggest contract in MLB history just behind A-Rod's $275 million with the Yankees in 2008. And just like A-Rod's contract I don't think Pujols will live up to it because of his age.

I don't feel bad for the St. Louis Cardinals because honestly they got the 11 best years of Pujols career (maybe the 11 best years of any player in MLB history) with two World Series titles. He isn't going to get better with age and be happy Cardinals fans because you would have been screwed with an albatross contract like Pujols hanging over the arch for the next decade. Now you just have to deal with Matt Holliday's overbloated contract.

I guess the Angels are going for it all. Rumor is they are close to signing lefty CJ Wilson to be their #2 starter for over $100 million also. In a shitty economy it still baffles me these teams can afford these contracts. Attendance was down everywhere in MLB parks. Less people are watching. I've been a diehard baseball fan since I was born and even now I can fully admit that baseball pales in comparison to interest to College Football and the NFL. It's a great move for Pujols since he can DH in 2-3 years when his legs will be fucked and the years of performance enhancing drugs catch up with him.

So now if you are the Cardinals you make a call to Prince Fielder's agent. The big guy would be a St. Louis hero just because he decided to come to the Cardinals when Pujols would rather leave because the money was greener on the West Coast.

Mike Tyson Has Some Herman Cain Promises

He's got my vote. Oh wait. He dropped out. I thought he was the Godfather? What the fuck Herman Cain? Too bad for the American people but at least Cain has the freedom now to grope as many women as possible. That is something we all can believe in.

The first time they met back in 1993 it was the "Game of the Century." This year the rivalry is renewed with bragging rights on the line down in Orlando, FL. These two fanbases don't like each other but if you have any sense of style you have to love this classic CATHOLICS VS CRIMINOLES Shirt.

Order your shirt at this link.


Shipping starts this week on these brand new BAMA BLEAUXS t-shirts. The front is obvious. The back says "SORRY SABAN LES IS MORE." Quite possibly the coolest t-shirt on the planet especially if you are rooting for the Bayou Bengals.

Order today at this link.

Tyrann Mathieu aka Honey Badger Does It Again

If you want to know what the definition of playmaker is in football then I think the Honey Badger answers the question. Mathieu brings back memories of PrimeTime high stepping back in the day down in Tallahassee. Basically the Honey Badgers doesn't give a shit. He takes what he wants.
