Maybe Hugh Freeze did not know what he was getting into?
Freeze was hired as the head coach at Mississippi earlier this month, after one year at Arkansas State. He is best known as the longtime coach at Briarcrest Christian School in Memphis, where he coached Michael Oher, the inspiration for the best-selling book and popular movie "The Blind Side."
The 2012 SEC schedule was recently released and Ole Miss (Oher’s alma mater) drew road games at Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia and LSU, with home games against Texas A&M, Texas, Auburn and instate rival Mississippi State.
Thursday night, Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and his Baylor Bears take on the Washington Huskies at the Valero Alamo Bowl in San Antonio. This matchup will in all likelihood be the final college game for RG3, as the redshirt junior will almost certainly declare for April’s NFL Draft.
As the multidimensional QB suits up one last time, we at iFollowSports wanted to remind college football fans of the 6-2 gunslinger's comedic side.
Three days after winning the Heisman, the Baylor star made an appearance on the “Late Show with David Letterman,” participating in the "Top Ten" segment.
Two of RG3's best scripted lines were: "And everyone laughed when I asked Santa for a Heisman" and "How long before Kim Kardashian calls?”
Sawicki Motors in Rochelle, Illinois advertised an unusual promotion for Christmas---free cars! If customers purchased a new car from Sawicki last week and the Bears shut out Green Bay Sunday night, winners would receive a full refund on their transaction. Sawicki would do this for the first $ 1 million worth of vehicles sold.
Alas, Aaron Rodgers threw five touchdowns to ruin the hopes of numerous Bears fans in Rochelle.
You may have already seen this video, but even if you have, it is certainly worth seeing again.
The Cincinnati Bengals needed a win over the Arizona Cardinals to keep their postseason hopes alive. While running a crossing pattern, wide receiver Jerome Simpson fielded Andy Dalton's pass and headed toward the end zone. Waiting at the goal line was Arizona linebacker Daryl Washington, but that was no problem for Simpson, who somersaulted over Washington, landing perfectly on two feet.
The baseball team in London, Ontario, Canada is a new entry in the independent Frontier League, a 14- team circuit in the US and Canada, whose 2012 season begins in mid-May. When London unveiled their new logo and nickname recently, sparks flew immediately, especially with women's groups.
The image on the poster introducing the London Rippers bears a strong resemblance to the notorious English serial killer Jack the Ripper, complete with top hat and dagger. No one believes that the Ripper, who is named Jack, is not based on the London murderer, who terrorized the British capital in the 1890s, stalking and brutalizing women.
A Toronto sports marketer named Richard Powers notes that the team is naive to think they did not have Jack the Ripper in mind when the logo was designed.
Who knew that the women of the Lingerie Football League had anything in common with PETA?
Ladies who play for the LFL’s Toronto Triumph are showing their support by opposing animal cruelty and the use of animal fur.
Four members of the Triumph joined a demonstration in Toronto under signs that read "Bench Fur" and "Wearing fur is a personal foul." They also appeared in a video which urged shoppers to eliminate fur items from their holiday shopping lists.
Coming together, isn’t that the true spirit of the holiday season?
