The Top 10 Funniest Super Bowl Commercials of All Time

Super Bowl Commericals

Only Time I Will Ever Agree With Spurrier…

“I honestly don’t think king Nick will ever leave Bama. They are the perfect match. A guy with no conscience and no ethics, worshiped by a fan base too stupid to value either.”

Fresh Prince Theme: Gangsta Version

This is what the song would sound like if he’d stayed in West Philadelphia.

5 Star RB & tide commit Trent Richardson

per Trent…

“Yeah, I’m still committed to Alabama. But some of their fans are starting to push me away. They call me all the time, send me flowers, show up to my high school games and track meets, and are just generally coming across as overly desperate. You know; a guy likes to have the door held for him and stuff like that, but they want me to do weird stuff like calling them when I get home to ‘make sure I made it in alright’ and always dissecting everything I say to my other friends in order to find hidden meanings. I know they mean well and they really are nice guys, but they are just trying to move this relationship along too fast. We should be in the early stages of getting to know each other, but they are really pressuring me to make a commitment to them before I technically can. My mistake was letting them force me into saying some things I may not have meant early on. Now that I want to play the field and see what else might be out there, they’re acting as if I’m leading them on…which is not my intention. I really like Alabama and would love to spend my college career there, but the desperation is making me uneasy.”


What did the size 14 shoe say to the face?

Chaz Ramsey’s career is over

A quick update from the Ramsey family. I’ll flesh out the story a little bit either later tonight or perhaps when I wake up in the morning. For background, the original story is here.Former Auburn offensive lineman Chaz Ramsey underwent a second back surgery Wednesday and will not attempt to return to football, Ramsey’s father Key told the Press-Register.Key Ramsey said that doctors expect his son to have a normal and pain-free life after the surgery.Chaz Ramsey alleged in a Press-Register story last week that Auburn’s training staff disregarded doctor’s rehab instructions after his initial back surgery.Ramsey was one of three offensive linemen who started as true freshmen in 2007. But he injured his back in December of 2007 and the subsequent dispute with the training staff was one of the factors leading to his departure from the team in 2008.Auburn announced last week that head football trainer Arnold Gamber had been relieved of his duties. The university said the move was unrelated to the Press-Register’s story on Ramsey.  In an e-mail message to the Press-Register, Ramsey’s father said he wanted to thank Auburn fans for their thoughts and prayers. He also thanked Auburn team physician Dr. Michael Goodlett for his “support and compassion.”  




Apple’s Tim Cook, Steve Jobs’ fill-in, an Auburn grad 

Certainly, Jobs thinks so. The company’s high profile co-founder left Cook in charge when cancer surgery forced Jobs to step aside for two months in 2004. With Jobs’ health again an issue, he’s leaving Apple until June. And the 48-year-old Cook, chief operating officer since 2005, was left running the maker of Macintosh computers, iPods and iPhones.

He graduated from Auburn in 1982 with an industrial engineering degree, later earning a master’s in business administration from Duke University in North Carolina. Cook worked for IBM for 12 years in that state, moving on to computer reseller Intelligent Electronics and manufacturer Compaq before joining Apple.

Cook remains a big Auburn football fan, and has been an active supporter of the school, said Alice Smith, chair of what’s now the Industrial and Systems Engineering Department there. Cook helped found a departmental advisory committee of industry leaders, gave money for a scholarship fund named for him, and also contributed to a fund that helps the department buy new equipment and technology.


Pac-10: We’d leave BCS over plus-1

Our presidents have no interest whatsoever in a plus-one model — none,” Hansen says. “It’s a little annoying that my colleagues continue to float this idea as though it has merit. If they continue to push it, and try to push us into a corner … ” Will the Pac-10 walk away from the BCS? “Yes, no question.”


New OL coach


Jeff Grimes, the assistant head coach and offensive line coach for the University of Colorado football team the past two seasons, has accepted a position at Auburn University, CU head coach Dan Hawkins confirmed Sunday
