The BCS has vacated the results of the 2005 Orange Bowl. I am personally vacating the memories of every fat girl I hooked up with in college and that time I sharted my pants.Read more
Mark Cuban’s Radical Football
As of right now, it’s an exploratory LLC with one employee. But it ambitiously aims “to impact college football so that the last two teams playing are the best two teams” acccording to a statement Cuban gave to the San Diego Union-Tribune last week.
I think I’ve made my stance clear: I’ve got no love for the BCS, and I’ll get behind anyone–even an often-raving mad Cuban–who wants to improve college football’s currently pathetic excuse for a postseason.
DR PEPPER WAR EAGLE!: When Auburn Fans Descend On WalmartRead more
It’s past the point of being absurd now. Every year college football stretches out its postseason, the more irrelevant it becomes. It’s a wasted sport. It’s the bad orgasm of sports. You know how sometimes you’ll be jerking off and you’ll try and hold the orgasm for a second so that it’s real good but then you fuck up and touch your peepee at just the wrong time and the whole thing is ruined? That’s college football. It’s the dribbling jizz on the mattress of American sport. It’s the only sport in America that has no interest in actual growth. And that makes it un-American and Communistic and fucking EVIL.
UPDATE: Oregon Football’s National Championship Count Remains at Zero
Congrats to Cam Newton, Nick Fairley, Coach Gene Chizik and the rest of the BCS Champion Auburn Tigers. After the jump, a quick recap and video of the celebration from Toomer’s Corner.Read more
Hats off to Auburn, whose defense turned in the performance of the year, reducing one of the most potent offensive machines in recent memory to an electric car that looked like somebody forgot to plug it in.Read more
5-7 Longhorns Could Still Get Bowl Invite
5-7 Longhorns Could Still Get Bowl Invite
As of the time I’m writing this, there are six 5-win teams that need to win one more game this year, or Texas (and their massive fanbase) is likely to get an invite to a bowl game, in spite of their painful 7-loss season. Behold the savage, greedy madness of a college football system with 35 bowl games and a whopping 70 slots to fill.
Having watched most Texas games this season, I can say confidently they don’t deserve to be anywhere near a bowl. But I don’t blame them for wanting the shot–the rules granting bowl teams an extra three weeks of practice make a bowl bid an invaluable part of the talent development process.
I just hate to think how inviting a 5-7 team could tarnish the good name of the uDrove Humanitarian, MAACO Las Vegas or Beef ‘O’ Brady’s St. Petersburg Bowls.
IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DREAM: Boise State will not have the privilege of getting crushed by Auburn or Oregon in the BCS Championship after losing 34-31 against Nevada in overtime last night.Read more
Trojan DePo: The Tao of Pete
TrojanWire’s Devon Pollard poses with Seattle head coach Pete Carroll following ESPN’s Lunch with a Legend radio broadcast at Morton’s the Steakhouse in Santa Ana.

Headlinin’: Disgraced Evans officially out at Georgia
Making the morning rounds. • Unhappy trails. To no one’s surprise, Damon Evans appears to be officially out as Georgia athletic director following his tear-filled, panty-wielding DUI arrest with a younger woman in the passenger seat last Wednesday, minutes before the start of a new, $550,000-per-year contract. Evans reportedly met with university lawyers over the […]Read more
Big 12 name remains, but logistics change for slimmed-down league
There’s still much to be hashed out over the nuts and bolts of the new 10-team Big 12, beginning with the name. (Unlike, say, the 100-year-old cachet of the Big Ten, there’s nothing particularly hallowed about "Big 12," and, well, "Big Ten" is already taken. I prefer the "Diet 12," or "Big 12 Jr," or […]Read more
Conferences Consider Expansion, Not Tradition – Pete Thamel
Conferences Consider Expansion, Not Tradition – Pete Thamel This is an interesting piece by Thamel. For years the Pac-10 and Big 10 were chastised for not getting on board with the BCS, conference championships and keeping the Rose Bowl Tradition etc. With Larry Scott’s new vision and energy, this will shake some things up…tradition will get […]Read more
