Big fan of your column. I am a huge fan of the Seminoles and just got tickets to the Florida game. I was at that debacle of a game with Troy. Our schedule is not that bad, but having watched Florida this weekend, I feel that could be a tough game. Your thoughts? -- Chad Middleton, Auburn, Ala.
Florida State football is a touchy subject right now with anyone, especially those still wearing their garnet-and-gold glasses. I did some not-so-undercover work at the Swamp recently, and the prognosis isn't good for FSU. So rather than beat poor Renegade to a pulp, read more about it in SIOC's: Sterger: Saturday at The Swamp.
You have to tell me where you get all your sexy clothes! My husband would go nuts for shorts like yours! -- Candice, Atlanta
Sorry, sweetheart, but most of my clothes are customized by me (or "Stergerized" as my friends call it) or one of my Cowgirl crew. I occasionally buy my Florida State shirts from Bill's Bookstore or Garnet and Gold, but they never look the same once they leave the store. My advice? Find a cute T-shirt with a good fit and make it your own. Cut it, slice it, whatever you do ... just "own it" when you put it on.
As for my jean shorts, I believe the newest pair is from Guess. But you'd better get them while they're hot, because I doubt they sell Daisy Dukes in the winter.
Jenn, after the Oklahoma-Oregon and Oklahoma State-Houston games, what is your take on instant replay in college football? I don't really think replay affected the outcome of the OSU-Houston game, but my Sooners now have a loss when they should have walked away with a W, thanks to either a blind ref or an incompetent replay official. Replay seems to be working great in the NFL, but I think if college football can't make improvements, it needs to consider getting rid of the system. Suspending officials isn't the answer. -- Brad, Oklahoma City
Unfortunately, as long as there are humans involved, there will always be room for error. In the case of the Sooners' bad call, referee Gordon Riese stands by his statement that he was only able to view one camera angle from the booth. Pac-10 officials seem to corroborate his story. When replay was fully implemented in the NCAA during the 2005 season, the thought was that it would help refs correct split-second decisions in their own judgment. However, when the ACC leads the NCAA in number of calls reversed (50 percent of them, to be exact), maybe it's time to invest some money in glasses or better training and less on fancy equipment. Now, looking at the eye chart, let's begin at the letter E....
What is more disturbing, that Dustin Diamond has a sex tape or that someone would have sex with him and be willing to tape it as proof that she had sex with him? -- Robert, Cincinnati
It was only a few months ago when Dustin Diamond, a.k.a. Screech, went on a national campaign begging for donations to save his house from foreclosure. Then a writer from the MilwaukeeJournal-Sentinel claimed the whole house-foreclosure story was a hoax and called America's favorite dork "a fraud." Now the former child star is releasing his latest attempt to break into acting, a la Tommy Lee and Colin Farrell: his very own sex tape. Diamond went on Tampa's MJ Morning Show last week to refute claims that he released the tape, but he left many listeners skeptical. But any smart agent will tell you that any press is good press. Kudos to Dustin for shedding the typecast role Hollywood has placed upon him for much of his acting career. But did it really need to be documented? As for the girls, congrats: You got to hook up with a D-list celebrity. If you weren't in cahoots with the video's release, may I remind you that Diamond was voted the third most annoying former child actor that readers would like to punch in the face by Stuff magazine?
