Adam Jones will not be suspended by the Cowboys for violating any code of conduct, and will play in the Cowboys game on Sunday.  According to the ‘Boys, he was “horsing around” with his bodyguard, and there was no real altercation.  Maybe the league will step in and suspend him.  Either way, he’s a ticking time bomb and will relapse again by next year.   The Sporting Blog

The SEC is so pressure-filled that Auburn fired its Offensive Coordinator after an anemic offense didn’t score in the 2nd half in the loss at Vandy.  I think Coach Tommy Tuberville is finding a scapegoat, but the SEC definitely pays for keeps.  I think the next fire in the SEC will be Steve Spurrier’s in the offseason.

A Tommy Lasorda Biopic is in the works to be produced by Miramax.  Did anyone see “Righteous Kill” Pacino and DeNiro’s first movie since “Heat?”  I didn’t think so. I’m much more intrigued by James Gandalfini playing Sonny Vacario in an HBO film based on Sonny’s life.  Sports by Brooks

Lee Corso is Not Funny

ESPN Game Day was in Nashville, TN for the first time, ever.  Lee Corso unceremoniasly picked the Auburn Tigers to beat the Vanderbilt Commodores.  Yee have little faith.  To quote Michael Bolton, this no “talent ass-clown” faked-out the Vandy faithful by whipping out a Commodore mascot helmet, and then throwing on an Auburn jersey.  That’s OKAY, Corso is used to playing the bad guy when he heads to Game Day.  But when he threw on the Tennessee jersey after the Auburn helmet, he showed the true Kenny Chesney sycophant that he is.

Kenny Chesney did not belong on Game Day in Nashvegas.  The Gameday crew came to celebrate the Commodores, not the Volunteers who Chesney roots for.  I can’t stand it when Monday Night Football has irrevelent pop culture guests in the commentator booth, pluggng their next tour or movie, and this was no different.  They could have invited Vince Gill or any of the hundreds of country music fans who support the Dores.

College Game Day: NashVegas baby!

Vanderbilt University, the academic school of the SEC is hosting College Game Day on Saturday October 4, 08.  Kirk, Lee, Chris, and Desmond will descend on “Vandyland” to cover the college football landscape in addition to the Vandy/Auburn game Saturday night.  Vandy is 4-0 for the 4th time since 1950.

In case you missed it, the Vandy/Ole Miss was not even televised two weeks ago.  The feed was only available via an audio webcast.  Now, the entire Saturday ESPN college football coverage is anchored down in Nashville, TN.  The Vandy co-eds will be partying all day tomorrow, and click here for a picture of the Theta Pledge class, showing their Vandy pride topless (Thanks Clay Travis). And the Vandy frat guys will be partying up a storm, though not like these 57 fratters who got arrested after the Ole Miss game.

The Dores, now ranked 19 in the AP, are the perennial joke of the SEC, so much so that when Steve Spurrier left Florida to coach the Washington Redskins, Post writers such as Kornheiser and Wilbon said that the NFC was one of the more difficult divisions in football and Vanderbilt wasn’t on Spurrier’s Skins’ schedule.  Now the team is 4-0, and took revenge on Spurrier beating his current team, South Carolina, earlier in the year.

The school has Jay Cutler as an alumn, a coach who doesn’t allow his players to swear, and their biggest game of the decade (so far) on Saturday.
