25 most expensive tickets for the 2014 college football season
Prices that are listed indicate the least expensive ticket available today on StubHub. Clearly, Alabama and Notre Dame raise the stakes.

$419 Michigan at Notre Dame

$322 Alabama at LSU

$314 Auburn at Alabama

$219 Texas A&M at Alabama

$201 Florida at Alabama

$168 West Virginia vs. Alabama

Unsurprisingly, Bama tickets are in 5 of the top 25. Semi-surprisingly, Alabama-LSU is more expensive (though not by much) than the IB. I would think prices for those tickets, especially this year, would be much higher. Though, $314 a ticket is still cheaper than a weekend at Disney World.....

CB Shelby Osborne to Become College Football First Female Non-Kicker

She will become the first female college football player who isn't a kicking specialist. Campbellsville is an NAIA school in Kentucky. Osborne's story is a good one, going from someone who didn't like football at all to a player in high school.

Talking about breaking down barriers. I find it odd I haven't seen this on ESPN or making headlines like other barrier breaking football announcements we've seen in recent memory.....

Tray Matthews Dismissed: Resignation, Gregg Allman Lyrics, And You. - Dawg Sports

No details were provided in the University statement regarding the dismissal, other than this quote from Mark Richt: "We are trying to make room for guys who want to do things right."

And that just about sums up the entirety of the Head Dawg's tenure in Athens, doesn't it? Especially over the last few seasons, and perhaps this offseason more than any other, it's been a constant process of weeding out guys who aren't doing things "the Georgia way."

The Georgia way? Serderiously? I can't tell if he's being serious or trolling here.

Classroom disruption caused Tray Matthews’ dismissal |

Dr. Ronald Bogue, the professor of his Children’s Literature course. Matthews says he was asked to leave the class of around 30 students but did not. “We were just going back and forth on something and then the teacher just basically said, ‘Y’all be quiet, y’all are always talking.’ And that’s the only thing that happened,” Matthews said. “And the teacher was just, ‘Get out,’ and I was like, ‘Sorry, he just keeps talking to me. I wasn’t disrespectful to the teacher at all.”

“That’s basically the reason why I got kicked off though,” Matthews said of the classroom incident. “That’s what [coach Mark Richt] told me basically. … Yeah, I think it’s kind of some of the arrest stuff, too, though. But I was basically, I was leaving anyways, I just hadn’t put that in the media.”

Ummmmmmm "Yeah, I think it’s kind of some of the arrest stuff, too, though. But I was basically, I was leaving anyways, I just hadn’t put that in the media.”

Yeah, OK, bro..


Darian Claiborne, Isaiah Golden dismissed from Texas A&M Aggies - ESPN

Claiborne and Golden, who both were expected to play key roles as sophomores this fall on the A&M defense after starting as true freshmen in 2013, were arrested and charged with aggravated robbery Tuesday, according to the College Station Police Department. According to police, the pair are accused of robbing three male victims at gunpoint on May 23 after the three men agreed to purchase marijuana from Claiborne and Golden.

A news release from CSPD said that Claiborne and Golden "arrived at the apartment to complete the transaction, one of the suspects produced a handgun, pointed it at one of the victims while the other suspect took the money that was present to purchase the marijuana. While this was occurring, one of the victims stood up from the couch and was struck in the face by the suspect with the handgun. The suspects then fled the area on foot and the victims notified police."

So, should we do some quick hoodoo to prevent 'Bama players from making similar idiotic choices?
