Football and Religion. Like Peanut Butter and Chocolate.
College Football Resource has unearthed a neat story about a t-shirt company that's making shirts for Bama and Auburn fans related to Bible Verses. They are considering developing Georgia shirts as well. I think one has already been developed for Dawg fans (Campus Crusade for Christ maybe?). They use this verse:
"So when we could stand it no longer, we thought it best to be left by ourselves in Athens." -- 1 Thessalonians 3:1 (NIV)You know that's how I roll. I bring it NIV style. (ht - Dawgsports.com).
While we're talking religion, Notre Dame's silly little slap fight with Clemson over a recruit has generated some humor. The HouseThatRockBuilt has obtained the secret memo that Charlie Weis sent a Clemson recruit that started the mess.
ND vs. Clemson academic smack talk. We all know how this ends.
Speaking of Clemson, MaconDawg's brand new blog gets started with two solid reads. He brings us his thoughts on Mark Richt recruiting his own son at QB now that Clemson has offered. The best line I've heard on Jon Richt's recruitment comes from DawgPost.com subscriber halfmoonrvierdawg,
"Rumor has it Mark is planning to buy him a car, shower his family with gifts, and sleep with the recruit's mother... apparently he's pulling out all the stops."He also tips us off to Jim Harrick's new role as an AAU Coach. MaconDawg manages to weave Thomas Crown, Snoop Dogg and LeBron James all into one article.
I help young people. Wink, Wink.
Lastly, we go into the time machine to pull one out from last season about Joe Pa's driving from the MightyMJD.
