I know drafting an offensive lineman in the first round isn’t always the sexiest pick, but the Bengals o-line has been a disaster ever since Mike Brown fucked up the Andrew Whitworth situation a few years ago. Jonah Williams appears to have everything you want in a franchise left tackle. He’s played at the highest level (Alabama, maybe you’ve heard of them) against the best talent in college and there are endless stories about his work ethic and desire to be the very best in the game.
Thanks to this horrendous targeting call, LSU’s best defensive player will miss the first half of the Alabama game when the Crimson Tide make the trip to Baton Rouge in two weeks. You know, the game that could shape the College Football Playoff landscape. Steeler fans probably want Devin White banned from football, but anyone else watching this game can clearly see this wasn’t a targeting penalty. At best you could say this was a slightly late shove. Even that wouldn’t have warranted a flag in my opinion, but what do I know? Continue reading
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
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
SI.com – Former Tennessee coach Butch Jones is joining the Alabama coaching staff, but he won’t be on the field.
Instead, Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said he is “an intern, an analyst” after practice Tuesday.
“I guess we could have several names for it, Saban said. “He can’t coach on the field. He can work with us off the field. And today was actually the first time he was cleared by the NCAA. We have these rules and I don’t even know what they’re called, like we can’t hire high school coaches. We can’t hire people that have recruited other players that we’re recruiting and all that. You have to go through a process with the NCAA, and that finally got completed today.”
When I first read the headline that Butch Jones was going to “intern” at Alabama, I almost pulled a muscle from laughing. Or was that from when I tried to get out of my desk chair too quickly? Either way, a muscle was almost pulled and I’m kinda sore right now. Anywhooo – the titles were a little misleading when news broke on his new gig, but the fact of the matter remains: Butch Jones has turned into a puddle of suck in recent years and this might be as far rock bottom as a coach can go.

Well, it is official AJ McCarron has won his grievance case against the Bengals and this means he is officially a free agent as of March. This also means that the botched trade with the Browns, as if it wasn’t bad enough, will sting just a little bit more. Continue reading

We also look forward to the divisional match ups and give you our picks against the spread, which are almost guaranteed to be wrong.

Hello and welcome to a late afternoon edition of Wake Up With Whitty. And by “late afternoon” I mean that this probably got finished late Sunday night and then I backdated it a few hours. A little trick we like to use in The Biz. Keeps your loyal fan
s on their toes and helps you reach a whole new audience. It’s how I’ve become so successful. And now that you’ve had a sneak peak at how the sausage gets made, it’s time to focus on more important things, like how I’m pissed about the College Football Playoff decision and how I can’t decide if I’m going to pop in Home Alone on DVD tomorrow night or if I’m going to suck it up and watch my Bengals embarrass themselves on Monday Night Football. So without further ado, here’s Wake Up With Whitty:
Hello and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. It’s been a long weekend but it’s finally coming to a close. Most of you have probably been off since at least Thursday. I’m sure you ate way too much food over the past 3-5 days too (Side Note: If you’re one of those “Ham is a better Thanksgiving food than turkey” lunatics, please stop reading now. You’re not welcome here). You’ve either spent some quality time with family or spent time doing everything possible trying to avoid family. You spent hours watching football all weekend and maybe even slipped in a basketball game or two (I hear people are still into that these days). Hell, you may have even put up your Christmas decorations already. With all of that going on, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that you have to go back to work tomorrow. The week after Thanksgiving always feels like the longest week of the year, especially on Monday. So as the NFL games wrap up on Sunday, you’ll start to have the very sobering realization that you have to go back to reality tomorrow. And that’s easily one of the most depressing feelings ever. I can’t do anything to fix that, but hopefully I can at least offer you a brief distraction with today’s Wake Up With Whitty.
Hello and welcome to another edition of Wake Up With Whitty. We’ve past the midway point in November, the weather is starting to turn colder and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. The NFL playoff picture is starting to take shape and there’s only one week left before Conference Championship Week in college football. Some of the
psychopaths Christmas enthusiasts have already started putting up their lights and trees (*cough* Jefe *cough*) and the big red bow car commercials are out in full force. It’s an exciting time of year, and with so much going on, it’s hard to stay focused on the stories that matter. That’s where I come in. Join me as I take you on a journey through the first three stories I happened to come across the top stories around the world of sports from this past week.
