I'm surprised by this, I thought that all post tat-gate, all post season trinkets and awards would be held until prospective student athletes had graduated, used up all eligibility, or decided to leave the university?

As you know, Meyer is a Master of Psychology, so maybe he said to Braxton, "Wear this... It will remind them that they have failed before and will fail again." Considering Braxton ran for over 150 yards and had 3 TD runs, I'd say that it worked perfectly...

What is this? A center for ants?!? How can we be expected to teach children to learn how to read if they can't even fit inside the building?

Good catch....I probably would not have seen that.

Somehow this makes me like him even more. He exhibits so many of the qualities I enjoy about college football.

Go Brax! No surprise who got the southern region's cover. Get read for it to be "un-American" when Auburn isn't playing in the big one!

Pretty good call on the SI preview cover of Rise of the Nerds for "even Duke"
But probably gets canceled out by Florida as #9.

F*ckbeans!  Was hoping to avoid the SI cover this week.  Oh well, at least it's a regional cover and at least they don't ask whether Miller is one of best ever and on the verge of a championship like they did with McCarron/Bama two weeks ago.  Still, for someone as superstitious as me, I am displeased.

If they want some recognition, they should just be happy there is a Wolverine on the cover...
Of course he's chasing Braxton, but he's on there.

Kind of like this photo...  One of my all time favorites that I have signed by Pittman in my basement!

for a guy who runs so well and so fast, he should does look awkward when he does. The face and the way his shoulders make his neck disappear. love it.
FYI, that is 3 in the past 12 months. No jinxing Braxton baby! They can try all they want!

I saw a UFO told me to have a goodyear!
