(can never decide which awesome Updyke picture to go with, decided to just go with all of them at the same time) 


ESPN  - Harvey Updkye, the Alabama fan who infamously poisoned Auburn’s beloved oak trees at Toomer’s Corner in 2010, has agreed to appear at a charity event Sept. 27 in Mobile, Alabama, in which fans will be allowed to either dunk him in a dunking booth or throw pies at his face.

“He thought about it and thought about it,” Updyke’s wife, Elva, said. “His daughter said he needed to do it because it will show that he’s not as big of a nut as some people believe. He told them they can do whatever they want to him if it will raise money for kids.”

Harvey Updyke, the Alabama fan who infamously poisoned Auburn’s beloved oak trees at Toomer’s Corner in 2010, has agreed to a charity event in which fans will be allowed to dunk him in a dunking booth or throw pies at his face.

T.J. Hodges, an Alabama fan living near Chicago, is organizing the event to help raise money for the family of John Oliver, a boy from outside Mobile who died of cancer in July.

“The Harvey Updyke idea came from me thinking outside the box to raise money for the family,” Hodges said. “I thought I’d take a chance and see if Harvey was interested in helping, and he said he’d do whatever we wanted.”

Updyke, who now lives in Albany, Louisiana, also was sentenced to five years of probation and banned from attending any college sporting event for the rest of his life. In addition, he is prohibited from stepping foot on the Auburn campus again.

Updyke’s wife said he realizes Auburn fans probably will show up at the Mobile charity event to take a shot at him.

“He knows there’s going to be a lot of Auburn fans there, but he doesn’t care,” Elva Updyke said. “He’s 65 years old. What are they going to do to him? They’ll have security there.”

Haha, Elva.  Classic Elva.  Yeahh you’re right sweetheart, they’ll have security there, nothing to worry about, not a single thing.  Oh except for any and every Auburn fan in the state who would literally give their life for the chance to strangle your husband to death with their bare hands.   “What are they going to do to him?” Gee I don’t know Elva, ever seen Hostel?  Use your imagination.

Seriously his could be the first charity event in history where the dude who donated his time to raise money for a great cause ends up bloody and murdered at the bottom of a dunk tank.    Like I’m not sure if the organizers and the media here think Auburn fans are just going to laugh this off and shrug about it and say hey, it’s all good, bygones are bygones…but they can’t be that clueless about that SEC Football Life right?

Tufts Offering “Demystifying The Hipster” Course
Aug 212:00PM EST

Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 11.30.03 AM Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 11.30.33 AM




NECN - Select students at Tufts University will take on the task of trying to figure out what makes the hipster tick.

This is part of a new course being taught by NECN’s guest, Professor Jackie O’Dell. O’Dell said that to a certain extent, the students will be creating the content of the course.

“They’ll be creating an archive of texts or videos or films or songs that they think count as hipster texts,” O’Dell said. “It’s a little bit more about popular culture, so they’ll be thinking about themselves, but more than that, they’ll be thinking about the history of the term, in what contexts do people get call hipsters, who calls them that, and what are the social conditions or the kinds of popular culture questions that raise the identity of the hipster.”

EXP-0005-F: Demystifying the Hipster
1.0 credit, Letter Grading
Tuesday, 6:00-8:30PM

The hipster is a devisive cultural figure that elicits both envy and outrage, and some argue that it has run its course—but what exactly is (or was) the hipster? Are hipsters part of a counter-culture, or are they just another marketing niche in the mainstream? How can we tell the difference?

In this course, students will interrogate contemporary writing—both academic and popular—that claims to define the hipster, examining these arguments alongside exemplary cultural texts that have warranted the hipster label. We will focus on film, fiction, fashion, and music (among other genres and media) produced in the last twenty years, connecting these contemporary examples to a longer history of the hipster that dates back to Norman Mailer’s seminal 1957 essay, “The White Negro: Superficial Reflections on the Hipster.” Over the course of the semester, students will develop their own canon of hipster art. Students will become critics and sociologists of today’s hipster culture as they explore how hipster identity reflects larger cultural anxiety.






Demystifying the Hipster?  Are they even mystified in the first place?  Seriously how hard are hipsters to understand.    Take the L to Williamsburg and look for the guys in Warby Parker glasses and skinny jeans rolled up to their kneecaps playing a modified ukelele on a park bench.  Hop a flight to Portland and check out the chick in the vintage dress and bangs cut straight across her face eating Kale chips and smoking Parliaments giving a passionate speech to her friends about blind consumerism before riding off on her fixed gear bicycle.  Head over to Wicker Park and observe the people reading On The Road while listening to Grizzly Bear on their restored Walkman and frequently updating their blogspot page about their dreams of one day living off only what they independently farmed on their rooftop.   Boom, demystified.  Easiest class ever.   Slap an A+ on my paper (100% biodegradable and recyclable please) so I can stick it in my Herschel backpack and go celebrate with some PBR tall boys…no not because it tastes good, because it’s so bad that it’s ironic I’m drinking it.

Neil Everett Takes A Dump On ESPN’s Chest During Sportscenter For Covering Johnny Manziel And Braxton Miller More Than The Death Of Jason Bitsko
Aug 2112:35PM EST



Wonder how long the suspension will be?  4 years?  Conservative estimate.  All I know is if Bill Simmons gets week suspensions for bad mouthing the network, I’m pretty sure one of the handful of rotating anchors doing it gets black bagged and shipped to Mexico City to do ESPN Deportes on the Ocho for the rest of their career.  Either way, takes a big set of balls to pull something like this considering the iron fisted regime he works for.  I mean you can literally feel the venom behind that “Buckeyes.”  Neil has had it up to fucking here with Johnny Clipboard coverage.



RIP Jason Bitsko.

PS – I’m the first one to take shots at ESPN when it’s warranted but I don’t think covering one of the best college football teams in the country losing their starting quarterback for the year a week before the season starts is that out of line.

Two Drunk Chicks Get In A Barnburner Of A Fight That Ends With Both Falling Absurdly On The Train Tracks
Aug 2111:55AM EST



Now THAT is what I call a catfight. If you’re not Ronda Rousey or you’re not willing to get all sexy and tear off clothes and flip hair like those old Miller Lite commercials, you better be tumbling to the floor incompetently as if the entire train platform were covered in banana peels.




Not only did this girl kick the other onto the train tracks like Leonidas declaring what Sparta’s all about, you have to love how she threw a little dance move in there to taunt and celebrate. The “play on my team any day” trope is a little played out but if we can work on her not falling onto the train tracks Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man style I’m willing to give her a crack at the roster. Showed a whole lot of moxie here.

How’s your family?  Good?  Good looking group?  Getting together at some point to snap a nice photo for your holiday cards?  Yeah, might want to rethink that.  Probably not even worth it after feasting your eyes on this Roll Tide family masterpiece.  Don’t care how photogenic you are or how much you pay a professional photographer,  you simply aren’t getting results like this crew.



PS – Odds that baby’s name is Saban?

Mizzou Coach Teaches Players How To Dougie
Aug 2110:45AM EST





The Dougie?  Did he teach them how to Tebow next?  Maybe throw down a sick plank at the entrance to the stadium then film a Cinnamon Challenge?  Come on Mizzou, keep up with the trends.   Just saying if we get an Instagram video 2 seasons from now of you guys doing the Ice Bucket Challenge I won’t be surprised at this point.



Not only that but we’ve already had a coach demonstrate exactly how the Dougie is done.










You really want to go head to head with Kliff dude?










Miami Linebacker Denzel “The President” Perryman Puts A Jadeveon Clowney Hit On His Own Running Back During Scrimmage

Why do I get the feeling Perryman and this running back Gus Edwards don’t really get along in the locker room?

Oh is it because Denzel fucking hit sticks the fuck out of him every time he steps on the field?







Every scrimmage is basically a decapitation waiting to happen with this guy.  With teammates like The President Perryman who needs enemies, am I right Gus?








Penn State vs. UCF Season Opener In Ireland At Risk Due To A Volcanic Eruption
Aug 219:30AM EST

Screen Shot 2014-08-21 at 8.29.39 AM



ORLANDO, Fla. — UCF’s season opener in Ireland next week against Penn State may be in peril because of a possible volcanic eruption in Iceland.

Iceland’s Civil Protection Department said Wednesday that about 500 people were evacuated from the highlands part of the Vatnajokull glacier. The action was taken as a precaution following thousands of small earthquakes recently near Bardarbunga, a sub-glacial stratovolcano under the glacier.

UCF departs for Ireland Aug. 26 for its Aug. 30 game. Athletics spokesman Andy Seeley said school officials are monitoring the situation.

Iceland is separated from Ireland by the Atlantic Ocean and about 900 miles, but a volcanic eruption in Iceland could produce volcanic ash and potentially affect flights to Europe. More than 100,000 flights were cancelled following the 2010 eruption of the Eyjafjallajokul volcano.



Just your classic setback to a college football season opener, see something like this happen every year.  Problems with the turf, leaks in the roof, a nearby volcano about to erupt and shower you with liquid hot magma.   You hope it doesn’t happen to you but it always seems to.

Man Penn State really just cannot get out of this bad luck slump.   Think James Franklin saw this coming when he took the job?  Knew he had an uphill battle with the recent PSU reputation and the sanctions.  Not sure he knew flying to Ireland for a game against a team from Florida and getting Pompeii’ed by a nearby stratovolcano was part of the deal though.





PS – Live look-in at fans trying to leave the stadium next week -







PPS – Not sure if people have seen this but Penn State currently has the best hype video on the market:
