Woah Nelly! It’s “Bama vs. LSU” week again in college football!Chris Vernon

The Tide is rolling and the Bengal Tigers are poised for a resurgence under interim Head Coach, Ed Orgeron.

Not only is LSU hoping to change their future with a win over Bama, so is “Coach O”.  Word on the bayou is that Coach could land a permanent position should he upset Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.  Orgeron is of Cajun descent and seems to fit in pretty well in Baton Rouge so far.

You know, Orgeron was a head coach once before in the SEC. He was the head man at the University of Mississippi Colonel Reb Black Bear Rebels or something.

That one didn’t turn out so well. But, it sure was entertaining – thanks in part to popular sports talk host, Chris Vernon, formerly of 92.9 ESPN in Memphis, Tennessee.

In honor of Coach O and this week’s rivalry game, I thought I would bring back this little ditty by “Verno”.

Sing along!

Don’t worry if you don’t know the words, there’s a snappy little chorus, just jump right on in there!

As a comedian, Arnold is paid to say stupid things. Is this one of them?

 No. 1 Alabama hosted No. 6 Texas A&M in a battle of the last remaining undefeated SEC teams.

In the first quarter, Alabama defensive lineman, Jonathan Allen, shed a blocker and flew over another to spear Texas A&M quarterback, Trevor Knight.

The Aggies fell to the Tide 33-14.

We’ll update this post as memes begin to appear for today’s game!

The University of Tennessee Volunteer fans are rallying around the battle cry “WGWTFA” after the phrase was made legendary by defensive end, Darrell Taylor.

Taylor shouted the “Not Suitable For Work” phrase as he took the field to warm up for a game earlier this season against Virginia Tech at “The Battle of Bristol”.

It was captured on video by Busted Coverage which went viral throughout social media shortly thereafter.

The Tennessee faithful have embraced the hashtag #WGWTFA on social media and it didn’t take long to find its way onto various products design to capitalize on its popularity.

Whether #WGWTFA ever replaces “Go Vols!” as the pseudo-official battle cry of the Vol nation remains to be seen. The Vols have already lost to Texas A&M and a loss to the Crimson Tide would certainly diminish the somewhat arrogant nature of the phrase.

Given that it’s “The Third Saturday in October”, Bama fans are hoping to give the hastag #WGWTFA new meanings. Here are a few:

"We Grow Weird Tennessee Facial Hair" "The Closest Darrell Taylor Will Ever Be To Number One"

Drunk Finebaum Caller“Charlie From Memphis” called The Paul Finebaum Show today to discuss The University of Alabama football program and his his “Bama friends”.

Fortunately for listeners, “Charlie” had a few drinks before mustering the nerve to call the show.

The conversation quickly deteriorated into a discussion of his feelings for Finebaum, Memphis, Mexican restaurants, and Charlie’s liquor preferences.

Once “The Big Swagu” (aka Marcus Spears) joined the conversation, things really got entertaining.

It’s worth a listen!

By FinebaumFan.

It is said that everyone has a doppelganger – someone who looks exactly the same as another person.

In the case of University of Alabama offensive coordinator, Lane Kiffin,  Daniel Tosh fits the bill.

Tosh is a comedian, actor, and writer who hosts the Comedy Central television show – “Tosh.0.

This week, Tosh took advantage of his striking resemblance to Kiffin to reveal his impression of a Lane Kiffin “call in” television show.

Along with his stunning “wife”, played by UFC ring girl Chrissy Blair, “Kiffin” fielded calls from fans of the Alabama Crimson Tide, the Auburn Tigers, the USC Trojans, and the Tennessee Volunteers.

Watch as “Lane” takes calls from these unhappy fans on “Kiffin’s Krimson Korner”.

Nick Saban At Kent State

Nick Saban At Kent State

By Finebaum Fan.

In his weekly appearance on “Hey Coach”, Alabama Coach Nick Saban revealed that he had experienced the same injury that Alabama running back, Kenyan Drake, sustained in the October 4th game against The University of Mississippi.

Drake suffered a horrible leg injury in the second quarter against Ole Miss. During a tangled pileup, his left ankle twisted violently and he shouted so loudly that his voice was audible on CBS’ broadcast.

Saban played defensive back for the Kent State University football team under coach Don James.

Said Saban, “When I was a player in college, I got the SAME injury as he (Kenyan Drake) had…”

Here’s the audio with an update on Drake’s condition:
