OMGsh I just realized that college football is ONLY A WEEK AWAY!!! I’ve been so excited waiting for this glorious time of year to descend upon us. With such a short amount of time left to endure, I’m going to attempt to hold you over for 8 MORE DAYS with these hilarious / cool / totally awesome college football goodies that I’ve procured from across the web. Let’s get started, shall we?
We begin with the man who has absolutely dominated the sports-talk world this off-season, good ol’ Johnny Manziel. With all of his recent exploits – tropical vacations to Mexico, shootin’ the breeze with Drizzy Drake, sitting court side at his choice of NBA game – it would seem the Heisman-trophy winner can do no wrong. But that, my friends, is not the case. In case you missed it last season, there’s never a good time to NOT remind ourselves of Manziel’s lovely trip down Perfection Lane gone awry.
So, after that poor showing, in front of thousands, the “wonder kid” had to make up for it… with the help of none other than Dude Perfect.
I gotta admit, I’m surprised that football went through a basketball hoop so seamlessly… C’mon, wouldn’t it get stuck in the net? It’s all… pointy-ish and whatnot…
Anyway, while we’re on the topic of QBs… and amazing-ness… check out this play from Eastern Washington’s Vernon Adams during a game against Sacramento State last season. If you’ve ever played a minute of Madden, NCAA Football, or, for us older cats, Tecmo Bowl, you know how scary it can be when you’ve drifted deep into the pocket, eaten up the clock, and the defense is collapsing all around you. Somehow this kid manages to break out of 3 different take-down attempts and rocket one into the end zone. Pretty fancy footwork, QB.
By the way, in the comments section on this YouTube ditty, Peter Sowards from the Eastern Washington school newspaper stated about that flag we saw… "The penalty was for a facemask which was enforced on the kickoff after the PAT. The touchdown stood and did not come back on the cut block." So there ya go. Give ‘im 6.
Alright, it’s time for my favorite time, we’ve got some more fancy footwork from a team full of athletes… that’s basically a combination of my 2 favorite things. Wisconsin decided to start their practices off a little differently last season, and I’m just glad they had a camera there to capture it.
Oh my gracious… white boys dancing… it’s probably the greatest thing ever.
Ok, I’m keeping it in the music category with this one… This will show you the kind of passion we SEC-ians have for our conference. This is a straight-up PRODUCTION. A little more dancing, a whole lot of rapping, and one white boy breaking a whole bunch of stereotypes. Please notice the epic dance scene that begins at 3:22… big boy got moves! Or, not.
(The last 2 minutes of this video are completely unimportant.)
Hmm, I see you wanna diss Tennessee but you’ll drink our whiskey! Yea, that blurred logo don’t fool me… Tennessee for life brother!
Alright, if that little number wasn’t good enough for you, I’ll leave you with this one…
Try, just TRY to make it through this entire video without cringing.
Boy, SEC fans will truly make themselves look like idiots to rep their conference.
