Like any proud mom, AJ McCarron’s mom Dee Dee McCarron posted a bunch of pictures from her trip to the Heisman ceremony in New York City. Including this one with McCarron’s Heisman and SEC competition (though it was widely expected for Jameis Winston to take the trophy in a landslide): Johnny Manziel. [Continue Reading]
This A.J. McCarron situation doesn’t end well. I just know it. Someone like Johnny Manziel is going to get her pregnant or something. This is like the caucasian version of LeBron’s mom.
Before Johnny Manziel overwhelmed college football in November 2012, the idea that a first-year player could win the Heisman Trophy almost seemed taboo. But with Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston following Manziel on Saturday as the winner of college football’s most prestigious award, having a freshman quarterback take home the trophy can no longer be considered an anomaly. It might even be the new normal. [Continue Reading]
Of course we had to chime in on the Heisman Trophy which was awarded to Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston on Saturday. The USA Today article above is essentially highlighting the past two years in which a freshman won the award. Seniors aren’t a dying breed when it comes to winning the award, but it’s ABSOLUTELY a trend that we’re going to see more of moving forward. Why? I have absolutely no idea except for the fact that these young 18-year old kids are more physically mature than they’ve ever been and ready to compete. With that said, it’s still pretty amazing. As for Jameis Winston, the odds of him staying out of trouble over the next two years are the same as the odds of me wanting to bang a Victoria’s Secret model. And that’s all the matters.
Amir Williams was solid for the Ohio State Buckeyes Wednesday night, putting up 12 points and 9 rebounds in 24 minutes in a 86-48 win over Bryant. Afterward, he was interviewed by the Big 10 Network. Williams was asked what has led to his progression over the past few games and his response … well, let’s just say it was a good save. [Continue Reading]
Nice safe indeed. Regardless, he’s still going to probably have a sit down in the coach’s office. Pretty funny nonetheless.
After a decade and a half of controversy and debate, the BCS Era will end with a national championship match-up that will spark little outrage. When the final BCS standings were released on Sunday night, the expected was confirmed, as No. 1 Florida State (13-0) will face No. 2 Auburn (12-1) in the BCS National Championship game on Jan. 6 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. Though the undefeated Seminoles’ spot in the title game was assured, after Jameis Winston led the team to a brutal beat-down of Duke in the ACC title game, the Tigers, who knocked off Missouri in the SEC Championship, only jumped in the standings after some help from Michigan State, which ended Ohio State’s 24-game winning streak in the Big Ten Championship on Saturday. [Continue Reading]
Here’s the thing – as much as I want to try and poke holes in this game I really can’t. This might be the least controversial National Championship in years. Auburn is WITHOUT A DOUBT the hottest team in college football. Doesn’t the hottest team in college basketball usually win the title? I think we’re good here. Oregon and Ohio State exited gracefully for us. The ONLY thing I will say is: if Florida State played in the SEC they wouldn’t be undefeated, but be that as it may – we’re OK with this one.
With a mere four seconds remaining and the game knotted at 72-72, Colorado’s Askia Booker drove past halfcourt and drained a one-footed, game-winning 3-pointer to lift the Buffaloes to a 75-72 upset victory over No. 7 Kansas. [Continue Reading]
College basketball starting to get in the game after our focus has been fixated on football and MLB postseason play.
Jameis Winston led Florida State to a 45-7 victory against Duke on Saturday night in the ACC championship game, and the 13-0 Seminoles are on their way to the Rose Bowl for the BCS national championship game on Jan. 6. But Winston has been in the news for other issues besides football during the last three weeks. Winston faced a series of questions from ESPN reporter Heather Cox on the field after the game. When asked after the game what he had learned from the just-completed investigation, Winston said he had to get more mature. He credited coach Jimbo Fisher with providing full support, and he spoke about how his teammates had his back. On the fourth question about the investigation, when asked why he chose not to talk during the process, Winston turned and walked away. [Continue Reading]
About a third into the college football season I jumped on the Jameis Winston bandwagon. I thought this kid was going to be the next big thing in college football. And I’m a freaking idiot for thinking it was going to be different. Really stupid. I mean first the guy is at Florida State that’s a warning sign. Before long he’s the biggest villain in college football. Great. Hopefully his career becomes a giant pile of sh$t. Can’t see anyone rooting for him in the National Championship.
Duke played the defense its Hall of Fame coach wanted to see, while Quinn Cook turned in an all-around floor game to keep the 10th-ranked Blue Devils rolling in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Cook had 24 points — all in the second half — and nine assists to help Duke beat No. 22 Michigan 79-69 on Tuesday night, improving the Blue Devils to 13-2 all-time in the annual interconference competition.

Perhaps the best part of this game was Nik Stauskas throwing his show into the crowd – which lead to this GIF. Very well done.
Thanks to GUYISM for the GIF
Count them 3, yep 3 huge hits on one punt return in Division 3 football. Linfield College just annihilating guys on the return. There you have it – Division 3 football can bring the pain.
