University Of Michigan Party Video Declares The Wolverines Are ‘Still Better Than Your School’

In case you wanted to see how turnt up things get in Ann Arbor during football season, this pre-game party recap video shows you how hard University of Michigan kids go in the fall. The video even declares that Michigan is “still better than your school,” which is the type of thing every single bro says about their college. However, I do admit, the party scene looks pretty awesome.


Marcus Mariota Won the Heisman, But Somehow 10 People Didn’t Vote For Him

Marcus Mariota won the Heisman Trophy by the second largest margin in the award’s history, but can you believe 10 people completely left him off their ballot?

What a joke. Thirty-five people didn’t even hand in a ballot for whatever reason; of the 894 who did, 10 didn’t have Mariota listed among the Top 10.

Here’s the final breakdown, showing it was a runaway, and Gordon/Cooper were in a 2nd-tier class by themselves.

1. Marcus Mariota 2,534 788
2. Melvin Gordon 1,250 37
3. Amari Cooper 1,023 49
4. Trevone Boykin 218 8
5. J.T. Barrett 78 0
6. Jameis Winston 51 4
7. Tevin Coleman 44 2
8. Dak Prescott 42 2
9. Scooby Wright III 21 0
10. Bryce Petty 13 1


Tyreek Hill: Oklahoma State Player Arrested For Alleged Domestic Abuse

Oklahoma State RB/WR Tyreek Hill was arrested last night, following a complaint of domestic abuse by his girlfriend.

The name of the involved female was withheld from the release, which indicated that she and her boyfriend – identified as the 20-year-old Hill – had been arguing at Hill’s residence and that it escalated into a physical altercation.

The media release indicates that the woman claimed to have been struck by Hill on the face and stomach, and that he also had choked her. The release indicates that “the victim’s injuries were consistent with her statements,” and adds that she was treated and released from the hospital.

Hill returned a punt for a touchdown that tied the Bedlam game at 35-35 vs. Oklahoma in the 4th quarter.


Urban Meyer’s Wife’s Hair Caught On Fire While She Was Blowing Out Her Birthday Candles

Urban Meyer’s wife, Shelley, was celebrating her 50th birthday yesterday in Orlando when disaster struck. Not disaster like the Hindenburg, but disaster like her hair caught on fire while blowing out the candles.

The flames were apparently quickly extinguished and the family was able to joke about it on a variety of social media.



Police Called to Apartment of Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett Over Domestic Disturbance

J.T. Barrett, the backup Ohio State QB who was having an amazing season until he fractured his ankle against Michigan, was involved in a domestic disturbance early Tuesday morning in Columbus.

While no arrests were made, police responded to a call from Barrett’s girlfriend, who claimed he pushed her and choked her. From the police report, via ABC-6:

In the report, Barrett says a woman identified as his girlfriend — Alexandria Barrett-Clark — refused to leave his apartment after he asked her to do so. Barrett says she “ran at him and pushed him.”

Barrett says Barrett-Clark hit him. In the report, he say he pushed her awy in self-defense, which caused her to fall to a bed. Barrett says he again asked her to leave. Agan, he says, she refused.

Barrett-Clark says she told Barrett that she would leave in the morning.

She told police that Barrett confronted her in his bedroom and “choked her on the bed.” She said Barrett used his forearm to apply pressue to her neck before taking her phone away from her.

Neither had visible injuries according to police, no arrests were made, and no charges were filed. Barrett’s backup, Cardale Jones, led the team to a Big 10 Championship with a victory over Wisconsin, and will start their playoff game against Alabama.

Barrett, only a freshman, is expected to compete with Jones – and possibly the 2013 starter, Braxton Miller, if he doesn’t transfer – for the starting job in 2015.
