Each week, the college football team here at SI 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.

I'm so used to taking in about 17 hours of football-related programming from College GameDay to the end of the late Pac-12 games that I often forget that the behavior is completely unnatural. People don't just sit with the remote in hand and two extra screens, a phone and a computer essentially tethered through the entire day. This job makes you think it's normal to forget to eat, not check a clock for hours and be so inundated with stats and tweets that you get upset with yourself if you missed something. 

And yet, that's why I started Between The Hashes in the first place. It wasn't for me. I saw these things already. I noticed them. I marked them down. It's for everyone else who went to a game, ducked out to buy something at the hardware store or decided going to bed was a better decision than watching another overtime game run close to 3 a.m. (okay, 2 a.m. this time with setting the clocks back).

Hopefully you find some value here. Hopefully I make you smile once in awhile. That's my goal, and I never want to lose sight of that.  

Those Eyebrows Though

This one comes from my friend Brian Floyd over at SB Nation. Here's the thing about videobombs: you have such a short amount of time once you've decided "yes I am going to do this" that when you actually pop in there, even if you've thought about it a lot earlier in life, you still don't really know what you'll do. So when you get a perfect videobomb, whether it's weird or silly or creepy or everything in between, you have to acknowledge it. This videobomb, from the Thursday night Florida State-Louisville game, is one of those.
