My job is to make sure other people write about serious things and to personally write about stupid things, as you can see below. Go Falcons and Owls and no other raptors.


Lil Boosie: Free LSU from Saban

"Go on and come to Baton Rouge. Go on, put on that yellow jersey. Quit putting on that red and white."

Building Directional Michigan University football

Central, Eastern, and Western Michigan have had a few years of individual football success here and there. But what if they'd joined forces at some point to create a single university with a single football program?

Stupid targeting penalty rule dropped

Well, I mean, yeah.


Your team is going to win more games than anyone expects this year. Yes, this goes for all of you.

Nick Saban compares hurry-up football to cigarettes

The fastball guys say there's no data out there, and I guess you have to use some logic. What's the logic? If you smoke one cigarette, do you have the same chances of getting cancer if you smoke 20? I guess there's no study that specifically says that.

The Alabama coach, on hurry-up coaches upset with a NCAA rule proposal that would force them to dawdle for 10 seconds before each snap. He's comparing the number of plays run per game (which he thinks should be a low number; entirely coincidentally, his team is designed to use a slow pace and to beat teams that do likewise) to things that are bad for you, which actually works out, sort of. Cigarettes are dangerous, and football is dangerous. But on the subject of studies, one study suggests slow football is the more dangerous kind. So maybe up-tempo offenses are e-cigs?

Clemson somehow outsuspends Georgia

Tigers coach Dabo Swinney announced Tuesday that starters Corey Crawford and David Beasley, along with potential starters Shaq Anthony and Garry Peters, will miss the opener against Georgia. This is quite the upset; Mark Richt's many early-season suspensions have been so reliable as of late that Steve Spurrier's cited them as a reason to play the Dawgs in September (though he might now push for playing both rivals early). Georgia's only managed a dismissal of safety Josh Harvey-Clemons (who was also suspended for last year's opener vs. Clemson) so far.

RichRod hits Bielema with 'Speed' spoof

The people now demand the Arkansas head coach spoof himself into 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Do other sports worry about pace?

Because of tempo, college football is becoming a little bit more like other sports, and a little bit less like traditional football.

Kliff Kingsbury rapped 'All I Do Is Win'

It's good enough, but Bret Bielema would prefer a chopped-and-screwed version, for safety reasons.
