Strike while the iron is hot.
This is definitely the case for retail store Aggieland Outfitters as they have already came up with a t-shirt for sale in the wake of comments made by Texas A&M athletic director Eric Hyman. The shirts are selling for $19.99 and are available from sizes S-3XL.
Hyman spoke at an Aggies event Thursday night and unleashed a one-liner for the ages against Nick Saban and Alabama. “What do the moon and Texas A&M have in common? They both control the Tide,” Hyman quipped to a room full of Texas A&M supporters.
Hyman was making reference to the Aggies 29-24 victory over the Tide last season. It marked Alabama’s only loss of the year en route to a national championship.
The two will meet again in September at Kyle Field.
Maker’s Mark has released a limited edition bottle of their famous Kentucky bourbon whisky in honor of Rick Pitino. The 12,600 bottles of the head basketball coach will benefit the Louisville Academic Center of Excellence.
DeSean Jackson kicked Drew Rosenhaus to the curb recently, but now one of the NFL’s so-called “superagents” is firing back. Rosenhaus has filed a grievance with the NFLPA stating that Jackson owes him more than $400,000 in unpaid loans.
Rosenhaus has stated that, since bringing Jackson under his wing in 2009, the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver has taken multiple loans and failed to pay back what he owes.
Rosenhaus managed to negotiate a five-year deal with the Eagles in 2012 that had a potential value of $48.5 million, so it’s not exactly as if Jackson is hurting for money.
One of the biggest reasons Jackson’s decision has been making headlines recently is because of the company who is seen as the frontrunner to be his new representation. Reports have indicated that Jackson wants to join Jets quarterback Geno Smith and New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz at Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s newly minted agency.
2014 athlete Elijah Hood, the No. 9 athlete according to 247Sports is apparently pretty committed to Notre Dame. How committed? Well, his verbal is strong enough that he used Vine to capture himself flushing Alabama recruiting literature down the toilet.
Alabama freshman forward Devonta Pollard was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with the kidnapping of a six-year-old girl in Mississippi.
Pollard is facing one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping.
The alleged kidnapping took place on April 30 when Jashayla Hopson was abducted from her elementary school in Scooba, Miss. She was found unharmed the next day.
In May, Pollard’s mother was charged with the kidnapping of Hopson in Kemper County. Pollard’s name wasn’t tied to the crime at the time. It is now, obviously.
A total of six people have now been arrested in the case.
Jay Harris, a wide receiver from Downingtown East High School in Exton, Pa., is foregoing a football scholarship to pursue a rap career.
Harris is a senior and had 54 catches for 792 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. He was listed as a four-star recruit by Rivals and Scout.
“I’ve been thinking about doing this for a couple of years now…I try to take advantage of every opportunity I get and for him to like my music and reach it to me, I really appreciated that. I’ve always had this in the back of my head, but never had the courage to tell my parents that this is what I want to do.”
Harris mixtape is set to drop in June and he’s already released a YouTube video under the name Jay DatBull that has over 50,000 views, and is entitled, “DatBull 4 Life”.
Cake Art here in San Antonio created this for one lucky Texas Tech Red Raider fan.
The Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry is one of the best in college football. Not only does it feature two of the winningest programs in the sport, but the rivalry has also produced some riveting games. Unfortunately, the series looks to be coming to an end soon after the Irish decided to pull out of the series because of a scheduling agreement with the Atlantic Coast Conference.
On Monday, Michigan head coach Brady Hoke expressed his displeasure with the Irish essentially ending the rivalry, while speaking to a crowd in Grand Rapids, Mich.
“We are fortunate to have unbelievable rivalry games at Michigan,” said Hoke. “The Notre Dame game, that rivalry, which they’re chickening out of. They’re still going to play Michigan State, they’re going to play Purdue, but they don’t want to play Michigan. I don’t know how they made that decision.”

Johnny Manziel’s dream offseason continued this weekend. The Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner tweeted that he was at Pebble Beach playing golf with his family.
Manziel has not been shy about sharing all the amazing things he has done. He tweets pictures when he’s at big-time NBA or MLB games, and he’s gone on vacations to Mexico, New Orleans, and Toronto in recent months. The lavish lifestyle has led to many people questioning how he is able to afford all the luxuries despite being a college student. Others
have wondered how he even has time to be a student with all the fun things he seems to be doing.
Manziel responded to some of the criticism he heard over Twitter after tweeting about his golfing exploits:
“RT seems like your putting a lot of work into football these days douchebag” here working with my QB coach AND golfing”
“Okay now that everybody ripped me for playing some golf with the family..how’s everyone’s day going? Done with finals and enjoying summer?”
Manti Te’o just can’t catch a break.
The fake girlfriend scandal continues to follow the former Notre Dame linebacker everywhere he goes. Last month, a San Diego newspaper published a cartoon poking fun at Te’o, who the Chargers drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft. Now, the latest to get in on the “fun” is Maxim.
On Thursday, the magazine released its annual “Hot 100″ list, and low and behold Te’o's non-existent girlfriend made the cut at No. 69. She is depicted here wearing a black bikini in crystal blue waters.
Texas Tech offensive lineman Alfredo Morales tweeted the photo you see above on Tuesday, which shows a letter head coach Kliff Kingsbury sent to all of his players before they went home for summer break.
“Also we advise you to be active over break as you will need to be ready to work once June rolls around,” the note read. “Sitting at the house playing COD/2K13/Madden against 12 year olds online doesn’t suffice as ‘activity’ even if you claim to ‘wreck shop.’”
The Southeastern Conference has long been regarded as the premier league in college football. And for good reason.
The league has won seven straight national championships and just had a whopping 63 players selected in the NFL Draft.
As dominant as it may seem, Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops doesn’t seem too impressed. During a recent caravan stop, Stoops reportedly called the SEC’s dominance “propaganda” and said the gap between it and the rest of the conferences isn’t as wide as people may think.
Stoops referred to the bottom half of conference as evidence.“Well, it depends on what gap you’re talking about,” Stoops said. “What are the bottom six doing? “So they’ve had the best team in college football,” Stoops said. “They haven’t had the whole conference. Because, again, half of ‘em haven’t done much at all. I’m just asking you. You tell me.”In a way, Stoops does have a point, as flawed as it seems. The five SEC schools, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Auburn, and Tennessee, who failed to go to a bowl game last year were a combined 19-41. Meanwhile, the bottom half of the Big 12, Texas Tech, TCU, West Virginia, Iowa State, and Kansas, combined to go 29-35 overall.“It depends on who you want to listen to,” Stoops told the Tulsa World. “Listen, they’ve had the best team in college football, meaning they’ve won the national championship. That doesn’t mean everything else is always the best. “So you’re listening to a lot of propaganda that gets fed out to you,” he said. “You’re more than smart enough to figure it out. Again, you can look at the top two, three, four, five, six teams, and you can look at the bottom six, seven, eight, whatever they are. How well are they all doing?”
All-American closer Corey Knebel has been suspended by the University of Texas because, according to the Austin American-Statesman, “he willingly substituted his urine sample to protect a teammate from failing a drug test.”
The Austin American-Statesman report that the teammate in question is likely pitcher Cameron Cox, who was suspended indefinitely for an undisclosed rules violation. They got caught because the test came back positive for Adderal, which Knebel is approved to take despite it being on the NCAA’s list of banned substances.
So, seemingly Cox was worried about failing a drug test and got Knebel to swap in his urine sample, except he didn’t realize Knebel takes Adderal and that would show up on the falsified test.
The University of Alabama held their commencement ceremonies for thousands of deserving graduating students on Saturday
One person who was in attendance for the momentous occasion was Crimson Tide football coach Nick Saban. How do we know? Well, we have this semi-creepy photo for proof.
The official start of college football season is still about four months away, but that hasn’t stopped the folks at Navy from getting our blood pumping by releasing a trailer for 2013.
How many dorm-dwelling college freshmen do you know who sleep in Versace sheets? Deion Sanders Jr. does.
His dad, Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, mirthfully tweeted a picture of the lad in his bed on Wednesday. “MY son at his dorm at SMU. He’s a fool. Lol,” the father wrote.
No one can say Rick Pitino isn’t a man of his word. Thanks to Kenny Klein we get to see these topless photos of the Louisville head basketball coach and his new tattoo.
Hopefully you’ve heard about 7 year old Jack Hoffman, a brain cancer patient scoring a touchdown during the Nebraska Cornhuskers’ spring football game. It was one of, if not the best story of the 2013 sports year.Well Upper Deck decided to present the young baller with his own “Star Rookie” card to commemorate the moment.
When Nerlens Noel tore his ACL, Kentucky’s chances of cutting down the nets again essentially vanished. So the freshman sensation is passing his time with contributing a verse to a rap song about Kentucky’s quest for a ninth national title with Wes Grams.
N.C. State fans talking about Chris Paul’s late grandfather. D.J. Strawberry hearing comments about his troubled father. Duke fans holding up signs with “J.R. Can’t Reid” written on them are just a few examples of times students cross a line in their creative chants.
Some Wyoming fans crossed that line Wednesday night when they chanted “alcoholic” at Colorado State coach Larry Eustach.
Eustachy was fired from Iowa State in 2003 after he was photographed drinking with undergraduates. He admitted he was an functioning alcoholic — “probably the best in the country at it” — and sought treatment. He was quickly hired at Southern Miss and spent eight years there before moving to Colorado State last spring.
This April, Eustachy will mark 10 years of sobriety, he says.
The chant in Wyoming started before halftime of the game in Laramie. The Cowboys had been trailing for most of the game and would go on to lose 78-56.
This gentleman above will have no regrets whatsoever about his newly inked tattoo, which contains a hodgepodge of references to Nick Saban, Alabama football and Sons of Anarchy. Why would he?
What has seemed to become a yearly ritual South Carolina Gamecocks head football coach Steve Spurrier went shirtless at spring practice.
The Louisville Cardinals football team, fresh off of their Sugar Bowl victory over Florida, are entering the 2013 season with high expectations. They have a potential Heisman winner at quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater and a fiery head coach in Charlie Strong. They are viewed by many to be among the top 10 teams in the nation heading into the spring.
So, to pop the top on what should be a fantastic season, the Cardinals are planning to entice fans to come to Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium by selling $1 beers during its annual Spring Game on April 13. That’s right. I said $1 beer. The brew will be available both in and outside of the stadium for that price during the day.
An estimated crowd of 15,000 was on hand for last season’s rain-soaked affair.
