Want to know something funny? The UGA business major who is making #FreeGurley shirts (with Gurley’s name and likeness on them) is currently making a few thousand bucks selling them on campus at $15 a pop…while Gurley himself is suspended for signing that name on a piece of paper.
Late Monday afternoon, University of Georgia student Peyton Bennett drove to a post office in Athens. He needed to ship out a few packages to some loyal Bulldogs fans. “They’re selling really quickly,” said Bennett, a senior business major from Lilburn.
As of now, Bennett makes a profit off the name Todd Gurley. The bearer of that name, on the other hand, remains indefinitely suspended by the university for allegedly doing the same thing. The irony does not escape Bennett. By selling #FreeGurley T-shirts around campus in Athens, Bennett says he’s “pointing out a huge flaw in the system that the NCAA has.” And he makes some money while doing so.
The suspension and investigation of Gurley surrounds the allegation that he took money for signing memorabilia for a dealer. It took Bennett three days following the announcement of Gurley’s suspension to churn a similar profit.
Each white Gildan T-shirt, branded #FreeGurley in bold black and red font, sells for $15 a pop.
“We sold about 100 in three days with really no marketing plan besides walking on campus wearing them,” Bennett said. [AJC]
And by funny I mean sad.
Thon Maker Has A New Mixtape And It Just Made Calipari and Pitino Simultaneously Ejaculate All Over Their Offices
ESPN – Basketball recruiting junkies know the name Thon Maker. The South Sudan-born 17-year-old, who now plays for The Athlete Institute in suburban Toronto, is viewed as one of the top prospects in the world — even though it’s unclear whether he’ll head to college in 2015 or 2016 (he’s currently on track for 2016 but could reclassify).
Luckily for us, Maker’s talent isn’t visible only to scouts and coaches. As anyone can see on this highlight reel, his skills are just silly.
To watch just a few minutes of Maker’s fluidity running the floor, his guard-like handle, his passing, his shooting — and, oh yeah, a big man’s size — makes it no surprise that, according to ESPN recruiting, he’s being pursued by Arizona. And Duke. And Florida, and Kansas, and Kentucky, and Louisville and on and on …
I would have said Coach K too but I seriously doubt Coach K ejaculates. Just like sits in his office with his hands on his cheeks smiling while he lets out a couple of quiet farts. I don’t know why but I picture Coach K farting when he gets excited.
Kind of a weird tangent there but anyway, Thon Maker continues to not only have the most badass recruit name ever but also drop the hottest hoops mixtapes on the market. If this kid’s college career is anything like his high school mixtape career where they take out all the bad plays and splice the awesome ones together into 2 minute video segments then we’re looking at the next NBA superstar and hall of famer right here.
Got the blog goin up…on a Tuesday. I’ve had some hilarious conversations about this song, some people love it, some people hate it, but long story short, if you’re not down with Makonnen and this record you’re just super basic.
P.S. If you think Makonnen’s a one trick pony, please see “I Don’t Sell Molly No More.”
Such a slap in the face to Washington. Getting blown out so bad the fans don’t even care about watching anymore. Just pull out the inflatable beer pong raft and fire up a quick game in between easy Mariota touchdowns. Hey when you win 11 Border Wars in a row by an average of like 2 TDs a game you need to find some way to entertain yourself during the second half right?
PS – They don’t sell beer at Autzen right? Hoping some of these bros had flasks on them because if this is water pong things just went from pretty cool to super lame.
3:08 “these white people are crazy!”
Adam no….Adam no….No Adam…..ahhh fuck it, whoop his ass Adam. Almost forgot where I was for a second, an SEC tailgate is no place to be discouraging fighting. They’ll probably kick my ass for suggesting they stop kicking each other’s ass. Just watch the vehicle y’all please, watch the vehicle. OOOH HIS HEAD BLEEDIN!
PS – Big shout out from the Arkansas police for making this one easy for them TIM….MOTHAFUCKIN…ROBINSON…BITCH!
Jimbo Fisher Getting Heated With Media And Cutting Interview Short For Asking Him About Jameis Winston
Poor Jimbo. Guy probably hasn’t had a good night sleep without nightmares of Jameis Winston’s goofy ass face rattling his brain for the past 2 years.
Just visions of court documents and police cars and crab legs bouncing around his head every time he shuts his eyes.
Well not really poor Jimbo. There are worse things than being a college football coach and having an extremely talented Heisman winning quarterback who brings you a national championship and an undefeated record. Sure he’s not complaining when he sees that #1 ranking and more importantly that contract $$ in his bank account at the end of the day. But from a day to day headache and constant annoyance standpoint #5 has got to be a fucking handful. Don’t blame him for getting a little snippy with the media every now and then.
Utah National Guard Under Investigation For Sneaking Bikini Models Onto Base To Shoot Super Hot Promo Video
Breitbart - The Utah National Guard and the Utah Department of Public Safety are now investigating an incident in which British bikini models sneaked into Camp Williams, a Utah National Guard site, and took pictures for a Hot Shots Calendar while they appeared in tanks and fired machine guns.
The video of the five-minute long “behind the scenes” version of the June excursion was released on YouTube on Thursday. The scantily clad girls are shown shooting rifles and machine guns, showing of themselves in bunkers, hanging out in bunkers, riding in tanks, and cavorting in off-road military vehicles.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported that the Utah National Guard investigation discovered that a non-commissioned officer with the 19th Special Forces Group permitted the models to enter the training site without authorization. One Utah National Guard spokesperson stated, “He should have moved it up the chain of command.”
Know who didn’t care about the Utah National Guard before this video? Everyone. Everyone on Earth. Know who immediately took notice and had instant respect for the Utah National Guard and started to take notice of the amazing work they’re doing after the release of this video? Every straight heterosexual man with a Youtube account on the planet. Pretty sure the PR worked. So maybe lay off the guys a little bit? Boobs, guns, tanks and butts. That’s literally America.*
*Except for the girls being British. But, I’d argue that British bikini models with huge boobs are pretty much honorary American citizens at this point so we’re all good. Revolution was like 230 years ago, let’s all get over it.
TSG – After getting vanquished in a beer pong match, a group of sore losers opened fire early yesterday at a Texas house party, wounding a female reveler, police report.
The 1:20 AM shooting Sunday took place at a residence in Ames, a city 45 miles from Houston.
According to the Liberty County Sherriff’s Office, investigators are searching for two men who allegedly shot up the party after losing at the beer pong table. Deputies identified the suspects as Decoris “Red” Rucker, 24, and Chris “Crazy Chris” Hackett.
Rucker and Hackett were among a group of five men who became upset after losing a backyard beer pong game. The men, witnesses said, ran from the home while firing wildly at partygoers. An 18-year-old woman was shot in the thigh during the gunfire.
Rucker, Hackett, and the other men fled in a 2006 Buick. Seen at left, Rucker, a convicted felon, has a lengthy rap sheet that includes burglary, assault, weapons, and drug arrests. In April, he was busted on several felony narcotics counts.
This is why you never play beer pong against a guy named “Crazy Chris.” Just has loose cannon written all over him. I mean playing beer pong at a party with the usual cast of characters and beer pong hardos that you’ll encounter is bad enough. The guys who will debate you for 20 minutes before the game even starts about how it’s technically beirut that you’re playing, not beer pong. Guys who will spend the whole time making snarky comments about how they think you’re leaning and saying “is there even any beer in that cup?” every single time one of his shots rims out. Who will snap over the top of the cup before every shot to distract you and do an entire free throw routine before each shot like he’s at the line shooting 2 to decide the NBA finals. Plenty of annoyances like that you have to deal with at a normal house party without worrying about Crazy Chris and his felon friend Red Rucker losing the game and immediately spraying the living room down with gunfire.
Honestly at this point it just might be a good idea to avoid beer pong altogether at social functions? Yeah it sucks losing in OT after they hit a rebuttal with a list a mile long so you’re never going to sniff the table again and have to sulk on the couch with a solo cup 1/4 full of warm beer full of ping pong ball bacteria. But, not as bad as pulling out a win and taking a bullet to the gut. So think about it.
PS – One of the first things we ever did with Barstool New York was have me, KFC and Jenna Marbles go to AC to play in the World Series of Beer Pong. I’d say 85-90% of the crowd there has at some point fired a weapon at someone over a beer pong dispute. Thought it was just gonna be a big bro fest with everyone partying and drinking and having a good time. Instead there were like dudes in headbands analyzing cell phone footage of other teams setting up scouting reports designing strategy based on the direction of the AC blowing in the room. Long story short we were kicked out 20 minutes in.
