An Ode to the Emasculated

8777fb02b809e7b4_74583673.xxlargeI’ve seen you before. Once upon a time, in a previous life, I was that guy working a middling retail job on the weekends. I was the 21-year-old in a suit standing with my hands clasped at the waist pretending to give a shit about the seasonal sale going on around me, when in reality all I wanted was to be at a football game with my friends. I was that guy who stared you down and silently searched for any semblance of life, any hint of vigor, all while wordlessly pleading with you to GET OUT NOW.

I would have killed to be in your shoes back then. Weekends to myself, the freedom to do whatever I pleased, the ability to park my ass on a couch for eight straight hours and watch grown men beat the living piss out of each other, one quarter at a time. I wanted your life. Until I saw your face. Until I looked in your eyes.

Predicting the Outcome of All 12 Husky Football Games

titusyoungGame 1: Washington vs. Boise State; Saturday, Aug. 31, 7:00 p.m. PT; Husky Stadium, Seattle, Wash.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Boise is not a state. I don’t know when this geopolitical sham will finally cease, but it needs to. How can we preach “No Child Left Behind,” then mislabel our institutes of higher learning? And not only that, but it leads to a bigger question of how valuable the education at such a disoriented house of academia can possibly be.

Tennessee’s Hostesses: Redefining The Oral Commitment

Thought about going with “NCAA Probing Tennessee’s Hostesses,” but ESPN already alluded to that in their article.

Yeah so anyways, the University of Tennessee is employing female students to attract high school recruits to the football program. I think they call that ‘robbing the cradle.’

It’s not like this is anything unprecedented. We saw it go down in uncensored fashion in He Got Game. This kind of thing happens everywhere.

I’d imagine, however, that it puts things into perspective for the females in question when they’re labeled ‘hostesses.’ They likely see themselves as jersey-chasing fans of the football program, out to catch an athlete and secure a future with an accidental pregnancy. The NCAA doesn’t see it that way, though. They view them as escorts, ladies of the evening, harlots, sex objects.

Chip Kelly Unveils Waffle Soul To Rival Nike

chipkellyChip Kelly is weak.

First he drops the hammer on his star running back, suspending the volatile LeGarrette Blount for the remainder of the college football season.

Then, barely one month later, the head coach of the Oregon Ducks backtracks on his honorable defense of good character by stating that Blount could be back playing by November 7th, enough time to get in four regular season games.

What happened to your balls, Chip?

Kelly’s immediate reaction to Blount’s attack on Boise State defensive lineman Byron Hout, however severe, was one made with conviction and a seemingly rational digestion of the events that took place during the season’s first week.

Dear BYU: You Need To Recruit This Kid

mercadoThe look on his face says he’d be perfect for your school.

This article also shows his willingness to do whatever it takes to kick.

It’s not every day we hype up prep athletes with bright futures.

But this kid, Cameron Mercado, looks like perfect BYU material. Just gotta get that crazy look in his eye out of there. And whatever it is he’s storing in his cheeks.

Mark May Thinks He Knows What He’s Talking About

markmaylaughDeadspin is wrong.

They waste time hating on NFL analyst Mark Schlereth when it’s another Mark that torments sports fans the world around.

That would be Mark May, ESPN college football analyst and former NFL offensive lineman.

The oddly-bespectacled May is the bane of yours, my, and our existence and arguably the smartest-sounding dumb guy in the history of sports media.

The Weekend Rundown

Idaho Washington FootballHere’s what you may have missed if you spent the past weekend under a rock, in Afghanistan, or just generally being ignorant to the world around you.


Perhaps the only weekend of the season where all three major in-state football teams — the Huskies, Cougars, and Seahawks — had a legitimate shot at winning games. Well, at least we thought it was a legitimate shot. We were wrong about one team.

The Huskies began the day, smoke machine and all, by treating the Idaho Vandals the way any WAC team should be treated.

From kickoff, the game belonged to Washington. Scratch that, it actually belonged to the referees, who went all Ike Turner on the Vandals. Idaho racked up penalties on seemingly every first quarter play. Maybe it was Washington’s talent overwhelming them, or maybe they’re just notorious cheaters. Either way, I can’t say I’ve ever seen more than one first-and-30 situation for the same team in any given game until Saturday. Thank you, Idaho.

The Perpetual Black Eye Is Headed To Michigan

gregpaulusOnly Greg Paulus would be willing to stay in college one more year to touch a guy’s ass.

At least that’s what the former Duke point guard hopes to do in transferring to Michigan for his fifth and final year of NCAA eligibility.

Paulus and his trademark black eye intend to compete for the Wolverines’ open quarterback job, where head football coach Rich Rodriguez has assembled a mish-mash crew of borderline talent.
