Woman of the Year?

Yup, you read that correctly. The Harvard Lampoon will honor Hilton as its Woman of the Year in a ceremony on Feb. 6, two days before the release of her new film, The Hottie & the Nottie. Meanwhile Hilton was spotted getting cozy with freak show singer/actor Jared Leto at Sundance yesterday.
Top Cheap Shots of the 2007 CFB Season
The Wizard of Odds has done a great job compiling the top 10 cheap shots of the year. And if you're really in the mood, here are the top cheapies from the 2006 season.
There's No Crying in Basketball
One of SIOC's favorite college superfans is Kansas' Saul "White Owl" Tucker, who can usually be seen dancing or schmoozing with fellow Jayhawk fans. The Kansas City Star has a great profile of Tucker including the revelation that he lived with Jerry Garcia in Haight-Ashbury for three years in the '60s. Now if someone could do a profile of this Ohio State fan ...
2007 Video Games of the Year
The window has already closed for year-end lists, but we had to link to this -- Points in Case's top video games of 2007. While we're on the subject, be sure to check out this site, which allows you to play just about every Nintendo game.
Urban's Excellent Recruiting
We love this Urban Meyer recruiting story. The Gators coach was having trouble convincing top-ranked receiver Carl Moore to come to Gainesville, so when Meyer found out that Moore's girlfriend -- Maranda Smith -- was on UCLA's gymnastics team before quitting due to injury, he started calling her every day. Before long, both were enrolled at Florida (she as a member of the gymnastics team). As expected, some are unhappy with Meyer's recruiting tactics.

Our friends at Coaches Hot Seat have poured through hours of game film and completed their final coaching grades for the 2007 season. And as you may have guessed, Coach Crewcut -- the nation's highest-paid coach -- didn't score so well.
The Life of a 7-foot-7 Center
Before reading this profile, we only knew UNC-Asheville's Kenny George as that tell guy who got facialized by Tyler Hansbrough. Now we feel kinda bad for this big man -- he can't drive a car, is forced to sit on the floor during class and can barely fit (diagonally) on a hotel bed. That being said, it would be nice to dominate a game like this.
Smaller is Better
From "high-schoolish" gyms to scary mascots, The Ghosts of Wayne Fontes has all you need to know about the life of a mid-major fan.
Pop Culture Nugget
TV Land has acquired the rights to David Spade's Just Shoot Me! and will have a 16-hour marathon of the show this Saturday night. Pretty appropriate title for anyone who decides to take in the marathon.

Odds and Ends
So this is why everyone is so obsessed with Tyrelle Pryor ... Who knew scrabble was so popular (and hardcore!) ... These kids at Tufts need a life ... Turns out Keith Jackson wasn't a huge fan of the 2006 Rose Bowl between USC and Texas.
