“You Got Knocked the F*ck Out!”: Ole Miss’ Cody Prewitt Drops the Biggest Hit of the Early College Football Season [Video]

Ole Miss and Boise State met at the Georgia Dome in a game that was expected to be controlled by offense. Instead, it was the defenses that came to play, especially Ole Miss’ Cody Prewitt who absolutely destroyed a Broncos running back Shane Williams-Rhodes.

You can bet, Williams-Rhodes is going to feel that for days. Oh, Prewitt also had an interception, it made him the SEC’s active leader in career interceptions with ten.

Steve Spurrier Threw His Headset at the End of the First Half Against Texas A&M [Video]

The Johnny Manziel era was supposed to over, but Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill is doing his best to fill those shoes. With A&M leading 31-14 at the half against #9 South Carolina, coach Spurrier was not to happy about his teams performance in the first half. Cocks fans feel the same way coach. Pathetic.

USC’s Anthony Brown Quits Football Team, Accuses Coach Steve Sarkisian of Being Racist

USC was already having a bizarre week in light of the Josh Shaw ordeal. Now things have only gotten worse for the school, as Anthony Brown, a redshirt senior, quit the football team today.

Brown, who was switching to running back from defensive back this season, posted a message to Instagram this afternoon accusing coach Steve Sarkisian of racism. Sarkisian told reporters about Brown and expressed his shock at a press conference today.

It will be interesting to see how other players comment on their relationship with Sarkisian in the coming days. It will also be interesting to see how USC recovers from two bombshells in the same week.

Shaw was a captain, remember, while Brown started several games in his USC career at cornerback and had been moved to running back this season. Both were expected to contribute to the team this year in some capacity.

It certainly has not been an easy start to the Sarkisian-era this summer.

Awesome Video of Nick Saban Getting Decleated on Kickoff Coverage Playing High School Football in 1968

Nick Saban is a brilliant football mind and one of the greatest coaches in college football history. He is not only a pigskin guru, but he can do the Electric Slide, and lives large on his new $6.9 million contract.

Also, he once got decleated on kickoff coverage playing high school football in 1968. This GIF comes courtesy of Tide Sports, which went back to West Virginia to chronicle the life of Saban.

Somehow, Saban survived this hit and went on to play at Kent State.

Saban’s Crimson Tide open the season Saturday at 3:30 against West Virginia (ABC). Alabama is a 26.5 point favorite.

Josh Shaw Tells USC He Fabricated ‘Hero’ Story, Is Suspended Indefinitely

Josh Shaw has come clean to USC that he did not save his drowning nephew. The school has released the following statement:

USC senior cornerback Josh Shaw came to USC athletic department officials this afternoon (Wednesday, Aug. 27) and admitted that he had lied about how he suffered his ankle injuries over the weekend. He said that the story he told of rescuing his nephew in a pool in Palmdale, Calif., was a complete fabrication. He apologized for misleading his coaches, teammates, athletic department officials and the public.

“We are extremely disappointed in Josh,” said USC head football coach Steve Sarkisian. “He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him when he told us of his injuries, nor did anything after our initial vetting of his story.

“I appreciate that Josh has now admitted that he lied and has apologized. Although this type of behavior is out of character for Josh, it is unacceptable. Honesty and integrity must be at the center of our program. I believe Josh will learn from this. I hope that he will not be defined by this incident, and that the Trojan Family will accept his apology and support him.”

Sarkisian said that Shaw has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities. Shaw has retained Donald Etra as legal counsel. Etra will issue a statement on Shaw’s behalf soon. USC regrets the posting of the initial story on Monday (Aug. 25).

It remains unclear whether, and to what extent, any of these unconfirmed reports are true about how Shaw sustained his injuries, though the Orange County Register passes along something akin to TMZ’s “shimmying” report:

A man named Josh Shaw was listed in a police report as the boyfriend of the victim of a possible break-in at an apartment a few miles from the USC campus Saturday night, L.A. Police Department officer Sally Madera said. It is not clear whether that’s the USC football player of the same name.

Police responded about 10:40 p.m. to a radio call of a woman screaming at a residence in the 500 block of North Figueroa Street. Officers were directed to an apartment unit but found no one inside. They did see that the rear window had been pried open, and witnesses said they saw a “black male with dreadlocks” leaving via a balcony. When the woman returned to the apartment, she mentioned that her boyfriend was named Josh Shaw, who is black and has dreadlocks.

Shaw, who has six interceptions in the last two seasons, started all 14 games in 2013 and was expected to be a major part of the Trojans secondary this year.

With injury, suspension and distraction all standing in his way, though, it may be a while before he is able to contribute.

USC hosts Fresno State on Saturday, Aug. 30, in its season opener. The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
