House legend Dirty South throws down some deep tropical vibes on his latest single, another smash in a long line of smashes for the Serbian and Australian DJ/producer. And if you’re wondering where you know the name Sam Martin from, he’s the dude from that massive Guetta heater from earlier in the summer.

Feel like Roy McAvoy with these Draftkings Golf challenges. Get excited for it every week, flame out and fail to place in the money, demand another ball to keep trying. Think I really got it this time for the Barclays. Team looks airtight. No loose ends failing to miss the cut and ruin my whole score. Let’s do this.
- Fantasy PGA $40,000 Fairway Contest
- $40,000 Prize Pool, $7,000 to first place
- 1680 total entries, top 340 paid out
- Pick 6 PGA Golfers from The Barclays and stay under the $50k salary cap to win a share of the $40,000
For every 100 girls out there just slutting it up on Instagram there’s like one who’s legitimately talented, unsurprisingly getting good attention for it. This Laura Jenkinson girl is one of those people.
Can you turn a sexy mouth into a flawless picture of Bugs Bunny? NO chance. So you have to give
kudos to this girl for being more talented than these other women out there.
You have to admit, dumb or not, that this stuff takes a lot of skill. I could dig up Walt Disney and
organize a Kickstarter to reanimate his corpse to teach me how to draw these things and I still
unequivocally couldn’t do it. Most impressive thing I’ve seen on Instagram that didn’t involve areola.
Completely unrelated tangent: As you may have noticed, your old buddy Spags has had quite a day. Originally I figured that Pres’s blog on the comment situation would lead to a quick turn around.
Many Stoolies are upset about the changes to the comments. Some handled it with a degree of
maturity and optimism. Others have made memes of my face or called me slurs and spammed
entire blogs with derogatory comments all over them. It’s all very surprising to say the least. We just
need to understand it’s not about money or selling out or revenue. It’s about separating some of
the wheat from an extremely small amount of chaff. Barstool is edgy and irreverent, that’s what makes
employment here so exciting. But the lazy comments, attention whoring, and casual racism can get
really tiring. So we want to improve it and make the Barstool comments something to look forward to
seeking out once again. Is it hard? Yes. Will it work? I don’t know. But I’m excited to find out.
PS The first letter of each line above if you’re on desktop spells out a special thank you to all of you for being a great part of my day and a contribution to what makes Barstool so great.

Daily Mail - A couple who used nothing but emojis in texts to each other for a month have revealed that it actually improved their relationship.
Alex Goldmark and Liza Stark sent each other only symbols and pictures to see if it ‘altered their emotional vocabulary’ in an experiment for New Tech City. They discovered that emojis are better for conveying affection and positive feelings, but are (unsurprisingly) lacking when it comes to making plans and discussing logistics.
Before the experiment, Mr Goldmark (who’s a senior producer at New Tech City) and Ms Stark downloaded all the emoji apps they could find. The one they relied on most was WeChat, a popular Chinese text messaging service. The pair assigned themselves icons that represented ‘I’ or ‘me.’ For Mr Goldmark it was a boy wearing a baseball cap (‘It’s a helmet,’ argues Ms Stark) and for Ms Stark it was a girl with brown hair.
‘It works best when you can be literal with the icons and treat them like they are Chinese characters,’ Mr Goldmark said in the interview. ‘Each one means a word or a sound that could add up to a word. Like toilet plus paper equals toilet paper.’
Still, the couple had difficulties communicating basic plans. In one case, Ms Stark was meeting a friend for drinks and found out the friend had just had a death in the family. She tried to tell Mr Goldmark not to come (since it should be a girls night), but he interpreted her message as meaning she was sad he wasn’t there.
Oh yeah, this is exactly what we need! Because chicks were so easy to understand beforehand. Using “words” and “the English language” and shit. Now in order to improve our relationships we need to be able to decipher the image codes of our wives and girlfriends. Sounds fun.
Listen I’m not the most romantic guy in the world but I know this – if you have to resort to communicating solely through symbols made for 13 year old girls to add something special to your relationship, it might not be worth having one to begin with. Like if you can’t be two adults who talk through your issues and problem solve instead of sending cartoon animals to each other’s iPhones all day, maybe you’re better off single for a little bit. Not to mention it just sounds flat out annoying as hell. Honestly I can’t think of a single thing more frustrating than needing to tell my wife or girlfriend to pick up Charmin Ultra Strong toilet paper because I’m in the middle of taking a shit and we’re all out and she can’t understand me because I’m using nothing but fucking emoticons.
Bottom line, this idea =
Bobby Bowden Says That If His Statue Ever Comes To Life And Starts Wreaking Havoc On FSU Campus He Wants Everyone To Just Keep Raging
If you don’t laugh at 84 year old Bobby Bowden sitting on a couch telling Reddit that if his gigantic metal statue ever comes to life on FSU campus and starts terrorizing people he wants them to not worry and “just keep raging,” you have no sense of humor and can’t appreciate anything in life. Bottom line right there.
Oh and Bobby also said he has no idea how to order at Taco Bell so he would probably just pick the most expensive thing on the menu because he trusts that they know what they’re doing.
Wooh. Gosh, seldom do I eat at Taco Bell, I’m not sure. I don’t know. I guess I’d look to see what the most expensive thing was and go ahead and buy it. Hoping that they know what they’re talking about.
Wooh, gosh, that’ll be an XXL Grilled Stuft Steak Burrito and a Fiesta Chicken Taco salad for Coach Bowden, and throw in a diet Mountain Dew while you’re at it dadgummit.
There isn’t too much to say here besides the obvious that Bob Stoops is a terrific coach and Oklahoma is an upper echelon program and Top 10 desirable coaching job given their history, stability, and proximity to fertile recruiting beds in the Southwest and Southeast. So here’s some interesting trivia to illustrate how good Oklahoma is on a consistent basis: Bob Stoops and Joe Paterno are the only coaches to ever win all 5 major bowls, and Stoops was the only one to do it all in the BCS era. Stoops , not Saban, reached more BCS bowls in the BCS era than any other coach. Oklahoma is the all-time winningest program in the modern era since World War II. I know some people say Stoops isn’t a great coach and shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as the Nick Saban’s and Urban Meyer’s of the world because he doesn’t “win big games” enough. Those people are stupid and are the same type of people who say they wouldn’t want Lebron, Sidney Crosby, or Peyton Manning on their team in a playoff game. Yes, I am aware that he is 4-5 in BCS Bowls and has lost three straight National Championship games. Let me assure you as someone who is now a Wisconsin fan and grew up a Miami fan that I would love to have a coach who was capable of bringing me to 4 straight national championship games and losing 3 of them. It sucks for Oklahoma that for four of their trips to the Title game in the BCS era, they played two of the best teams in the modern era of College Football (Tebow’s Florida, and Leinart/Reggie Bush’s USC). But I’m sure your multiple bowl wins, Big 12 titles, and recent dominance over your most hated rival can provide you some solace if you’re a Sooners fan.
The Sooner Schooner obviously. I always wondered who teaches the person who drive the Schooner on how to do it? Where does one get Schooner lessons? At the University of Oklahoma somewhere apparently. When Barstool Oklahoma finally opens, I hope all the bloggers get to go to a game and get Schooner rides.
Oklahoma was fairly simple to break down last year. When their quarterback play was good, they were a team capable of being the best in the Big 12 and beating Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. When they were playing poorly, they were capable of losing to Notre Dame and getting as embarrassed by Baylor as a team can possibly be embarrassed. Trevor Knight will most start, who threw for 348 yards and 4 touchdowns against Bama, but if he struggles, will be replaced by Blake Bell. If you haven’t watched a full game with Blake Bell, just know that if he has any sort of pressure in the pocket, he’s roughly as good at quarterback as you or I am. Three offensive linemen are returning (14 total starters), meaning that Knight should get some protection to further develop throughout the season. What Oklahoma will lack on offense is running backs, but running back is the position that requires the least amount of in-game reps in order to be effective. I have no doubt that Stoops has recruited the talent to fill in that hole, and believe it will most likely be filled by 5-star running back Joe Mixon (who was down to Wisconsin as one of his final 3 options by the way. When Oklahoma beat Alabama though I knew it was all over). Oklahoma is a little young at secondary but is returning their entire front seven, so defending against the run will be a cinch and the quarterback pressure will be a bitch for Big 12 offenses all season. The Over/Under is set at 10.5. This season will all come down to Trevor Knight, so place your bets accordingly depending on whether you believe in him or not. For the first time, I’m going to be a pussy and punt on this question until I see him in the first few games of the season.
Obligatory Hype Video:
I wrote this blog before Joe Mixon was suspended for the year and forgot to update the blog accordingly. That one is that my bad. Also, getting a lot of tweets and emails about Blake Bell being a TE now. Blake Bell is still taking Quarterback reps and the latest practice report from the Oklahoma beat writers say that he is the likely QB if Trevor Knight struggles.
