That evening, Finebaum took Tessitore and Feldman to Highland's, the most acclaimed restaurant in Birmingham, and quickly found out that the East Coast lifer knew as much Iron Bowl history as a 30-year Alabama native -- and even more about the cuisine. "He turned the meal into a religious experience," said Finebaum. "I introduced him to Frank Stitt, the owner, and [Stitt] never looked at me again. They were talking about vegetables from Italy."

Joe Tessitore gets the profile treatment, and is apparently EDSBS-ready thanks to his stomach-first approach to life.

So many guys come up to me and say, ‘What's it like to be at the University of Florida? What's it like to be a Gator?' The first thing I think of is, ‘Wouldn't you like to know,'" he said. ... "I had a teammate at Denver who played the same position as me and he went to the University of Notre Dame. He would brag about his university, how great it was. Most of us in the locker room were like, ‘C'mon, we all had opportunities. We chose not to go there.' ... But he talked so much about his university that it became easy. I'd say, ‘Your whole team had one guy who ran under a 5.0 40 [yard dash]. Our kicker ran under 5.0.'

(Via) So that's clearly Tim Tebow talking about Brady Quinn from a story that was here, and still shows up in search when you enter the terms into Gatorzone, but is no longer at that URL. (Bless you, Google Cache.) It's nice to know a few things. It's nice to know that Notre Dame people even in the NFL are Notre Dame people. It's nice to know that those people can't beat out a banana-armed water buffalo for a starting spot, and it's nice to know that if you say things that are even remotely interesting, the source page might just happen to disappear. P.S. We have no idea if Florida's kickers ran under 5.0, but it's entirely possible. We also can't find the original article referenced, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's been deleted. (But it's probably been deleted.) . P.P.S. We like to imagine Von Miller just staring at this conversation and wondering why in the hell anyone would care about anything outside the state of Texas.

On Wednesday, James told MSNBC's Chuck Todd: "We didn't hire a PR firm." But when Todd pressed the issue, noting that James had indeed hired Spaeth Communications, James acknowledged that he had. "There are PR firms for what I needed," he said. "We needed somebody who could represent us."

Courtesy of Chuck Todd, that's Craig James lying his ass off on national television before not lying. That's great, but made funnier by page 255 of Swing Your Sword, where James and Spaeth communications staff email each other on December 28th, two days before Mike Leach is fired as coach at Texas Tech. THE ARISTOCRATS! [/snaps fingers]

I’m too much of a great player to sit on one school. This is the hardest decision ever. I have to find what school is best for Kermit, best school for Lavonte.

Decommitting in the third person ten months before signing day while using both your nickname and your real name? We were going to joke this screamed Lane Kiffin recruit, but this is something new entirely. Being at a loss for where he would end up, let's assume Maryland, and then an immediate transfer.

"Like I’m some kind of ogre," he said. "Some arrogant, obnoxious, loudmouth punk from New Jersey."

"Like I’m some kind of ogre," he said. "Some arrogant, obnoxious, loudmouth punk from New Jersey."

Charlie Weis would like you to know he's not what you think he is, if that thing happens to be an arrogant, obnoxious New Jersey punk. Not at all, Charlie. Those things can be completely separate from "terrible college football coach," and should not be associated with talented, arrogant obnoxious New Jersey punks.

On the morning before he sent his sacrificial lambs out to slaughter the butcher, University of Miami coach Howard Schnellenberger gazed out a picture window in his hotel suite high above downtown Miami and wondered aloud if the Nebraska Cornhuskers realized "what a bunch of alley cats they're about to run into." He said he doubted it....Looking lordly in his Oriental smoking jacket and red felt slippers, Schnellenberger bit down on a bagel and wondered, too, if the Huskers realized they were about to get hit from the heavens by a round-eyed, curly-haired freshman quarterback who talks as if he's 30, thinks as if he's 40 and may not be spacy but is definitely from another world. "I doubt it," said Schnellenberger.

The greatest lede to ever appear in Sports Illustrated comes from an article on Howard Schnellenberger and the 1984 Orange Bowl against Nebraska. It marks a turning point in college football history, but seriously HOWARD SCHNELLENBERGER EATING A BAGEL WEARING AN ORIENTAL SMOKING JACKET AND RED FELT SLIPPERS. He probably let John Underwood watch him shower, something he took no notes on because a.) he was too busy applauding and b.) some beauty transcends words.

University of Maryland police spokesperson Capt. Marc Limansky said an officer spotted Twine early Friday morning ranting and punching cars at a shopping center near campus. The officer told Twine to stop, Limansky said, but Twine ran. Limansky said the officer chased Twine and arrested him. There were no reports of damage to the cars.

A little car-punching never hurt anyone, but it is pretty much the most Maryland football 2011 thing ever to have a guy swinging at cars and do no damage whatsoever to them.

Says Rush: "I think you would compare the NCAA to Al Capone and to the Mafia."

If anyone would recognize the practices of an extortionate, inefficient, and useless bureaucracy, well, it would be a Chicago politician, wouldn't it?

You all create so many problems...I hate to start on this, but whether guys are going out for the draft that shouldn't even be thinking about that right now, whether we're worrying about the Heisman Trophy, now we're worrying about playing Missouri instead of Tennessee sometime down the road...I could give a shit about all that, excuse my French. I mean, come on. Let's talk about the game.

The abusive dad you never had but always loved, going off in today's press conference about the media and their questions which he does not have time for.
