Randy Moss at Marshall
ESPN debuted its latest 30 for 30 last night on Randy Moss, his West Virginia upbringing and his setbacks in trying to play college football. The Washington Post has five things we learned from the documentary and I've received 20 emails linking to this great Vine of Moss imitating Dennis Green. If you enjoyed the 30 for 30, I suggest you read this 1997 SI profile of a young and rebellious Moss from his time at Marshall University.
Longtime rivals Georgia and Auburn face off Saturday with a lot more at stake than bragging rights, thanks to the good people at Waffle House. If the Tigers win, waffles, coffee and hash browns will be free for a day at an Auburn Waffle House. If the Bulldogs win, waffles, coffee and hash browns will be free for a day at an Athens Waffle House. The winning school will also be awarded $15,000 to its general scholarship fund.
The $600 Combover
Former Purdue coach Gene Keady was interviewed by the Indianapolis Star on Tuesday and admitted that his famous combover cost $600 per week to maintain. “It was ugly. Everyone was always asking, ‘What is it? Why are you doing it?’ I did it because I was on TV. I did it because I was going bald. I thought I looked gorgeous with the combover. Of course, it was very ugly.” And if that's not enough, he also had extensions.

The Scandalous Life of Ichiro Suzuki
Ichiro Suzuki sat down with Bob Costas for an interview on the MLB Network and confessed that he once threw a bat out of frustration. Yup, threw a bat. The nerve! He then went on to say he immediately regretted it and wrote a letter to the man who made the bat, apologizing for the lapse in judgment. If you think that was bad, check out this expletive-filled rant about Kansas City.
