Between The Hashes Week 8: Skip Holtz, Mizzou fans and the pursuit of Gatorade baths

Each week, Campus Union will delve into the fun, the weird and the wacky of college football with a series called Between The Hashes. It’s a way to decompress from the madness of the week, and to find a few things that you might have missed.

You wanted upsets? Well, you got plenty of upsets in Week 8. Half of the teams in the top 10 lost, and the polls and the BCS race were turned completely upside down. While it's easy to focus solely on the results, we can't ignore the pageantry of the week. It's too important. So without further ado, here's the best from another wild week of college football.

It's game day!

This isn't even directly related to the games themselves, but Louisiana Tech just released its own version of the Geico "Hump Day" ad that everyone seems to have an opinion on.

OK, so it maybe would have been funnier if Skip Holtz went the extra mile and actually dressed up like a camel. But all things considered, it's not a bad video. One has to wonder if Louisiana Tech, which is currently 2-5, would win more games if they were played on Wednesdays.

Tigers can chomp, too

It's good to be a Missouri fan. In just their second season in the SEC, the Tigers are one of just two undefeated teams in the conference (along with Alabama) and are fresh off back-to-back wins over Georgia and Florida. So yeah, I'd say Mizzou has earned a little bit of cockiness, at least until the bottom drops out, if it does at all.

Splish splash who wants a Gatorade bath?

After Ole Miss completed a 27-24 upset win over LSU, two Rebels' offensive linemen (Jared Duke and Patrick Junen) began the search for head coach Hugh Freeze. The problem? Freeze was in a crowd of people, including ESPN's interview crew.

You might think this is comical, but there aren't many things more tragic than two giant forlorn men aimlessly roaming around with a full Gatorade cooler.

Play of the week

Maybe not even just the week, but the year so far. While Tennessee wide receiver Marquez North had his own nominee, the honor goes to Stanford wideout Kodi Whitfield for this incredible touchdown grab.

Special credit goes to this Washington State play, though. It was late and it was beautiful.

I'll get you some silverware

I'm guilty of this often -- making a hyperbolic bet that I have no intention of upholding if things go the wrong way -- but really, this would be a sight to see.

This was a bad, bad idea. Baylor scores lots of points, and against Iowa State on Saturday the Bears put up 71. At least with enough hot sauce, almost anything is edible. And speaking of snacks:

Cheer up, Charlie

There were so many sad fans this week. I don't know exactly why, as we're not even to the part of the year when seasonal affective disorder starts popping up. In fact, most of the below fans' teams ended up winning. Just remember, any of us could have no football team at all, or we could all be Hawaii fans.

War Eagle, indeed

After Auburn's 45-41 win over Texas A&M on Saturday, Tigers fans were happy. Like, really happy.

I like it when people get excited about things.

Tweet of the week

Someone has to win this category. While I'm tempted to give it to Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby for tweeting during a game he had been ejected for targeting in, I can't quite give him the honor.

If only because Stephen Garcia tweeting anything at all is still a big deal:

But this wins, hands down, even though the tweet was later deleted.

That would be Auburn junior Ben Bradley with the crack at the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.

The UGA I-UGA VIII Mascot Award

Michigan State really should consider signing that dog at wide receiver and giving Sparty a look at quarterback.

Edible edifices

No word yet on whether or not this cake can feed the entire capacity of Ohio Stadium.

Homecomings

Breaking Bad's Dean Norris is from South Bend, and he made his way to rainy Indiana to watch the Fighting Irish's 14-10 win over USC.

Wake Forest's Arnold Palmer already has a drink named after him, and now he's out there riding motorcycles with The Demon Deacon.

And Bill Murray, who owns the Charleston RiverDogs and has a kid at Clemson, stopped by College GameDay and, well, it was interesting.
