I was not planning on posting anything on the site today, but it is always worth logging in to share a new image from NCAA Football 14. Today we have a look at new ACC foes Virginia and Pittsburgh lining up for a play in the rain.
Bearcats beat down of Pitt deserves classic beat ‘em up soundtrack
Cincinnati and Pittsburgh played what could be the last installment of the River City Rivalry. With Pittsburgh moving to the ACC next season it looks as though Cincinnati will get to hold on to The Paddlewheel Trophy for quite some time.
With so much talk about River City I found myself coming up with all sorts of River City pop culture references. I hear there’s trouble right there in River City. Something about a pool table I suppose. But I also find myself immediately recalling the old beat ‘em up for the Nintendo Entertainment System, River City Ransom. Naturally, I decided it was fitting to put some clips of Cincinnati’s beat down on Pitt to the tune of the stage music from River City Ransom.
Who doesn’t love when mascots crowd surf?
Last night’s Big East opener between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh had a little bit of everything. It had a trumpet player taking a dive. It had another reason to poke fun at Pitt on their way out of the Big East. And it had the Bearcat mascot crowd surfing, a fine college football tradition at many campuses around the country.

Temple has respectable showing in clambake debut
Syracuse enjoyed their final clambake in the Big East Monday night in Rhode Island, but it was Rutgers who walked away with the conference title this year. Rutgers consumed 30 lobsters tonight, an incredible increase over their 2011 total of just two. Meanwhile, Syracuse was breaking multiple school records with 20 lobsters digested as a team, and 7.5 each downed by linemen Justin Pugh and Zack Chibane (according to Troy Nunes is a Magician‘s crack staff).
As is tradition it seems, the Big East players , coaches, and media and more cleaned out the Eisenhower House staff of lobsters before the bellies were full. Imagine what could happen next year when the conference bumps up to 12 members with the additions of Boise State, San Diego State, Houston, SMU, Central Florida and Memphis. The Big East better start looking for more lobsters.
Keep in mind, these are unofficial numbers, and we are taking the players at their word.
Kevin Harper, AKA Barefoot Hillbilly
It seems like it has been a while since we had a chance to check out a trick shot video, so thanks to Pittsburgh kicker Kevin Harper for rising to the occasion. Watch the concentration and focus demonstrated in this video. While successfully kicking a field goal with a vuvuzela blaring in his ears is impressive, it is hard to not be impressed by a 40-yard kick with no momentum, kicking a shorter field goal off a golf cart and, my favorite, the cone head.
Now please, can someone find a shirt for Kevin?
