  • UCLA and South Carolina both had Mike Leach memorial decals, with UCLA going with a pirate flag.
  • Tennessee also honored Mike Leach with a helmet decal, as well as Virginia football. (From @Wilds_Lee)

    A problem with Chris Dreidger’s mask is wobbly guitar strings. I’ve learned a thing or two about drawing musical instruments and one of them is, if you don’t sweat the details, it will spoil your picture.

    It’s hard to imagine the KSA tourism board doing a kit deal with anyone but Newcastle. Although, the EPL is cracking down on endorsements done between affiliated parties.

    Speaking of Man Utd, they went mono white against Wolves today, despite the feasibility of them wearing their normal red-white-black.
