Every year Notre Dame and Under Armour (previously Adidas) release special uniforms as part of their Shamrock Series. Every year I think they can’t possibly get dumber or uglier. Every year they prove me wrong. Since the Irish don’t have a conference schedule like the rest of the country, they adopt the old school barnstormer mentality and take on all challengers (aka lesser programs) across the country. Over the years they’ve played power houses like Army, Purdue, Maryland and Boston College. This year they’re heading to Yankee Stadium to take on a Syracuse Orange team that finished 2017 with a 4-8 record. The only thing worse than Syracuse on Yankee Stadium’s turf this November might be Notre Dame’s uniforms. Continue reading
College football coaches are weird dudes. From Les Miles eating grass to [REDACTED] faking a heart attack to get out of a contract when he realized the future of [REDACTED] football wasn’t as promising as it once was, you could write a book about the oddities of college coaches. Jim Harbaugh is no different when it comes to his theories on food. This might trump his previous take on the skim vs. whole milk debate.
Here I am, just minding my own business, enjoying a Friday afternoon after a long grinding work week and Alabama drops this bullshit on us. Talk about ruining a guy’s weekend.
Shoutout to this girl that got booted from Barstool Idol for showing up late. You have no idea but I use this GIF more often than I’d like to admit. We’re not hiring, sorry.
And now back to our regularly scheduled programming. Continue reading
Holy shit. Someone build me a brick wall, allow the mortar to cure, and let me run through that son of a bitch in 24 to 48 hours.
Congratulations to the newest married couple down south. All this poor guy wanted to do was get drunk with his buddies, say “I do” without falling over or pissing himself and eat some Alabama cake. Roll Damn Pie. I couldn’t think of a play on the word ‘cake’. That’s on me and for that, I apologize. Continue reading
ProFootballTalk.com – The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have agreed to trade Manziel to the Montreal Alouettes, according to Duane Ford of TSN.
Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman knows Manziel well, having coached him at Texas A&M. Manziel’s redshirt freshman season in 2011 was Sherman’s final season coaching the Aggies.
The Alouettes have already tried three quarterbacks (Drew Willy, Jeff Mathews and Matt Shiltz) and have the worst offense in the Canadian Football League. If Manziel can’t beat those guys out, that’s a very bad sign.
It’s hard to believe the Alouettes would trade for Manziel if they aren’t going to play him, so it appears that Manziel may soon, finally, get on the field in Canada.

Hey Johnny, wanna go to Montreal?
There are Cincinnati Bearcats all over the NBA Summer League this year in Vegas. With some of the talent that has made its way through the program the past few years, with 8 straight NCAA tournament appearances, it’s awesome that we’re finally starting to see some of Mick Cronin’s recruits have success after college. Jacob Evans III was the first round pick for the Golden State Warriors this past year, and has been playing a bunch of minutes for them in their first few games out west. As a Lakers fan, I was super jealous that he went to the GSW, instead of being nabbed by LA a few picks earlier.
Joining Evans this summer is Gary Clark with the Houston Rockets. I’m not sure if Gary is playing in the Summer League because I’ve seen him in street clothes on the bench. He signed a two-way deal with the Houston Rockets after going undrafted, but I think he can be good fit for them under the right circumstances. Clark’s frontcourt buddy Kyle Washington is also on a team this summer, playing for the Detroit Pistons. I’m not sure that Washington has the chops to make it in the NBA, but I think he definitely could make a nice living if he goes to Europe and plays professionally.
