D Presents : SpitBlood 2012-13 Concept Helmet

After months of painstaking research done by my super top secret market research team here at SpitBlood, this could be the helmet most all can agree on.

If y'all want to push the envelope even further by building a whole uniform to go with it, take it to the comments.

Spitblood's BCS Title Drinking Game


Probably what several of our readers will look like when the 4th quarter rolls around...

I'm sure plenty of the degenerates who read this site would love an excuse to get fitshaced on a Monday night, especially with this dumpy weather that seems to have most of Texas covered, and what better excuse than a national championship game that has the potential to have a final score that looks like a soccer match? So, let me be all of your enablers and attempt to create our very own drinking game for tonight's game. As usual, feel free to throw any other ideas/ways to get blindingly drunk on a Monday into the comments section...

  • Any references to Hurricane Katrina or BP...drink 5 seconds.
  • Oklahoma State mentions...drink 5.
  • T. Boone Pickens mentions...finish your drink.
  • Any outside shots of the French Quarter...drink 5.
  • Comments about Jordan Jefferson's face kicking preseason bar fight...Drink 10 seconds, then punch your nearest friend.
  • Anytime Les Miles is called "The Mad Hatter"...drink 5.
  • If Les Miles tries to eat any of the artificial Superdome grass...Finish your drink.
  • Defense/Special Teams touchdown...Shotgun a beer.
  • Any points other than a field goal...drink 10.
  • Brent Musburger references to either the Over/Under or the point spread...drink 10.
  • Any siting of a hot chick in a houndstooth fedora...drink 5 (there will probably be a lot of them.)
  • Harvey Updyke, the infamous Toomer's trees poisoner, reference...finish your drink then yell "Roll Damn Tide!"
  • Musburger saying "Honey Badger"...drink 5.
  • Any shots of Tyran Matthieu's nasty yellow hairdo...drink 10.
  • If the camera finds Nick Saban smiling at any point during the game...shotgun your beer, load up another, and shotgun it as well. If he smiles after the game...shotgun 1 beer.
Last but not least, if you're feeling really adventurous, finish your drink every time you see the "Bama bangs" haircut, AKA the Frat Flop or The Georgia Swoop.

Hope everyone enjoys themselves tonight, and we currently are working with the Spitblood lawyers to make sure we are not legally responsible if any of you drunks get alcohol poisoning tonight. Remember, the game is in New Orleans, so just pretend you're there for one evening, and then enjoy work in the morning...

Meet the Future Frogs: Keivon Gamble

Another future Horned Frog that will be on campus this semester to take part in off-season workouts and spring practice is Keivon Gamble, a 5'10" 190lb cornerback from Dallas' Lincoln High School by way of Trinity Valley Community College.

Gamble was a 1st Team All-District 12-4A corner in his senior year at Lincoln in 2008, was given 2 stars by Rivals and signed a letter of intent with SMU after having previously been committed to Tulsa. He redshirted at SMU in 2009 before academic problems forced him to transfer to Trinity Valley.

During his time at TVCC, Gamble honed his coverage skills and became a master at disrupting opposing passing games and was among the nation's JUCO leaders in pass break-ups and interceptions. He also earned a third star from Rivals and was ranked the #8 JUCO corner in the nation by JCGridiron.com. With his upgraded recruiting pedigree, he upgraded schools by committing to TCU in early September.

Since he'll be joining the program nine months before they kick off their first Big 12 season, look for him to be a key contributor and possibly even a starter next fall.

Daily Discussion: The BCS Championship

We were all pretty grumpy during last year's BCS National Title Game, watching two programs that cheated to get there instead of the deserving Horned Frogs. Whether or not LSU and Alabama are playing by the rules (I doubt it), and whether or not you think both teams deserve to be there (I'm on the fence), even those of you out there indignantly telling your friends and coworkers that you're not going to watch...are probably going to tuned in to see the rematch between the Tigers and Crimson Tide tonight.

So our daily discussion today deals with the game tonight- what are your thoughts? Should Oklahoma State be there instead of Alabama? Who (if anyone) are you rooting for, and why? Who do you think will win, and why?
