PHOTO: did Ha Ha Clinton-Dix foreshadow Green Bay drafting him 3 weeks ago?

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

With the 21st pick, the Green Bay Packers selected safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of Alabama. Uncharacteristic of the Packers picking a guy that everybody expected them to pick; but why not? A safety was an obvious need in Green Bay and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was, arguably, the best one available.

This pick by the Packers does not solve all of their defensive woes, but it’s a great start. That big gap next to safety Morgan Burnett is now filled.

SEC and ESPN finalize SEC network

SEC cable network

Today, the SEC and ESPN announced their partnership in forming an SEC network. The deal will give ESPN the rights to all SEC sports on television. However, CBS will still be able to keep one SEC game of the week, keeping a longstanding arrangement between CBS and the SEC.

The SEC Network deal runs until 2034. Making it the longest television deal in history. Not the longest college football deal, the longest ever television deal.

Alabama Wins Another Title: Crush Irish

alabama-football-uniforms-2013

Alabama football is good. There’s no way around it. No other way of saying it. Alabama is a good football team. Say what you want about Nick Saban and his demeanor as a head coach, but the guy has simply put together one of the best programs in college football history.

Their latest National Championship came against Notre Dame, 42-14, earning Bama and Saban their third title in four seasons.

Michigan Looks to Bounce Back After Bama

michigan wolverines

After a receiving a thorough beat down from Alabama last week, Michigan is looking to get back to their winning ways this Saturday against Air Force. A home opener against a weak opponent is the perfect hangover remedy for a team coming off a tough loss. With Fitzgerald Toussaint off of suspension and Denard Robinson’s poor play against Alabama, don’t expect the Wolverines to take is easy on the Falcons this weekend.

Although last week’s loss was a tough one to swallow for Brady Hoke’s crew, it came at the perfect time. A loss in week one is a lot better than a loss in week two or later. Beyond that, Alabama is the best team Michigan, or any team for that matter, will face all season. With Air Force coming up and Massachusetts the week after, the Wolverines have two weeks to figure out their running game with Toussaint in the picture before facing Notre Dame and their conference schedule.

#58 Ole Miss Rebels: College Football 77 in 77

ole-miss

The Ole Miss Rebels haven’t won the SEC since 1963. 1963! And they haven’t been to a bowl since 2009. Yet I think they’ll be better this season for some reason. Or at least serviceable. Somewhat competitive.

One thing’s for sure- they’ll end that 15 game losing streak to SEC opponents.

Texas A&M SEC welcome! (NSFW Video)

texas a&m

Texas A&M University has made a welcome to the SEC video, and it’s barely NSFW. It’s not vulgar or pornographic. Well, when you have  a young girl who looks like that saying “GO COCKS,” the language is a little not safe for work. And the entertainment value is so poor, that it’s being really bad, makes it NSFW.

LSU Honey Badger Video, App, Song Drinking Game

honey_badger

Watching the college football national title game Monday night, you might have noticed that Brent Musburger referred to LSU cornerback Tyrann Mathieu as “the Honey Badger” as much as possible.

And when I say “you might have noticed” I actually mean it was painfully obvious to anyone who watched even a nanosecond of the game. Was he trying to be hip? Did he not know the player’s actual name? Does he just love the nickname? Was he trying to kill by alcohol poisoning the people playing the “Musburger says Honey Badger” drinking game?

Or has a generation of mindless acronyms instead of original nicknames (A-Rod, D-Will, I-Rod etc.) made us all go bucknuts when we hear an actual nickname for an athlete?

Watch two Honey Badger videos after the jump. Both narrators are men with extremely homosexual sounding voices by the way.

For more on the actual player, and the story of how he got his nickname go here

SEC Football: Oversigning (“Cheating”)=More Championships

auburn_cam_newton

As Wes Bynum’s 19-yarder sailed through the desert air to split the uprights and down Oregon in the Tostitos BCS national championship there was no question Auburn was the best team in college football.  There was also no doubt which conference was at the top of the summit.  The cheers of “S-E-C” that rained down like ticker-tape on the Auburn players and coaches was evidence enough.  Fans chanting the conference’s moniker knew, and so did the rest of the nation, the SEC, with victories in the last five national championships, was college football’s king.

Fans, writers and even coaches have sought to explain this domination.  Many pegged blazing SEC speed as the reason, asserting that kids from Florida and Georgia just have better wheels than farm-boys from Ohio and Wisconsin.  For years, that reasoning has been widely accepted, but lately a new explanation has bubbled to the surface: oversigning.

Beware LSU Honey Badger Tyrann Mathieu, Physically and Psychologically

tyrann-mathieu

Funny thing about tonight’s college football national title game, the biggest star on one side, LSU, their Heisman Trophy finalist is actually a cornerback: Tyrann Mathieu.

Another funny thing about the game, he’s trying to get a psychological edge by looking up the names of mothers of Alabama football players for some trash talking on the field.
