Georgia and Alabama really don't like each other.
These teams don't get to play each other often enough, but they're making the most of it. This is only the fifth time Alabama has visited Athens, things are bound to get a little rowdy. As Alabama was taking the field at Sanford Stadium, players from both teams were getting a little to close for comfort and had to be separated by the officials.
Almost got ugly pre game. Alabama and Georgia players barking. Refs separate them. pic.twitter.com/0rzui88i5O— Michael Casagrande (@ByCasagrande) October 3, 2015
Even as the players were at midfield, the chatter seemed to continue between the Bulldogs and Tide.

It's frustrating to lose.
It's even more frustrating to get embarrassed by an in-state rival. Texas got railroaded by a really good and pretty much flawless TCU team. The Horned Frogs scored 30 in the first quarter. That has to hurt. During halftime of the game, Texas' freshman cornerback, Kris Boyd, retweeted a tweet about transferring to Texas A&M.
Obviously he wasn't serious (at least I hope not), but it's really a lesson as to why they don't want players on social media especially during games.

adidas is certainly making the most of their final season with Miami.
The two have paired to create "305 Ice" uniforms to be worn for the game against Cincinnati on October 1. The warmup features the Miami skyline which one can never really go wrong with. The sleek white look is a nice look for the Canes and paired with silver throughout, no one would be upset if we saw more of this uniform.

We've all seen those DirecTV commercials with the football star, and the not-so-famous version of himself.
A Tennessee fan has created his own version of the commercial, showing just how tough it is to be a Vols fan this season. The team's play in the first half is sometimes drastically different than in the second. After devastating losses to Oklahoma and Florida, we get a peak into what it's really like to be a Vols fan.

Less than 200 miles separates the campuses of Troy and South Alabama, and the Sun Belt rivals will have a new rivalry trophy at stake for Saturday’s meeting.
The South Alabama-Troy rivalry is officially the “Battle for the Belt,” and the winner of the annual meeting will take home a championship belt, similar to the ones in boxing or wrestling.
Needless to say, this is a pretty unique and outstanding rivalry trophy:

Arizona State has unveiled a new gray alternate uniform for its Oct. 3 matchup against UCLA. The uniform is known as the ‘Be The Hammer’ alternate and sports a gray scheme, largely due to the program using a sledge hammer to break a rock after big accomplishments.
The Sun Devils will wear the gray helmet and pants for Saturday’s game against the Bruins to go along with the program’s alternate white jersey from the opener against Texas A&M.
Here’s the full look at Arizona State’s alternate uniform:

As a football player, you're used to running over people.
Shelton Gibson took couldn't put on the brakes after scoring a touchdown and ran right into a Maryland cheerleader. Ouch. The West Virginia wide receiver was running too fast and she clearly couldn't move out of the way in time.
Who said cheerleading was easy?

Saturday morning really brings out the best in everybody.
Some of the best "signage" came out for the UCLA-Arizona game, and it did not disappoint.

Lots of Diddy out there.

Even though the game is against UCLA, Arizona fans can't help but to take some jabs at in-state rival Arizona St.
Elements of Drake and Meek Mill.

Last but not least, there's a new lead in the mystery of who killed Tupac.

One tweet can change everything.
Jay Hayes is learning that the hard way. The Notre Dame defensive tackle took to Twitter to vent his frustration regarding his lack of playing time, and guess who saw it? The very people who have the most interest in his Twitter account, the Notre Dame football staff.
Brian Kelly announced Hayes wouldn't be playing this weekend because of his tweets. The one thing he was complaining about got worse because he was complaining about it. Go figure.
"You have to think before you hit send, and what you have to do is knock on my door instead of hitting the send button, Kelly said. "If he has a job at Google and talks about his boss that way, he probably is not going to have a job the next day."
Kelly hopes this is a valuable lesson for Hayes going forward.
"You just tell them, 'Look, you need to make a better decision next time or it's going to impact you when you leave here.' He won't be on the travel roster this week for that mistake."
As the kids say, the streets is "twatching."
