Introducing the Google Breathalyzer
If we scan the globe with Google Earth, will we actually be able to see Google extending its tentacles to every arena in the world? Ruling the search, e-mail and (possibly) phone worlds wasn't enough, so now Google's getting in on the breathalyzer action, too. Ladies and gentlemen, we'd like to introduce you to Mail Goggles, a tool that, when enabled, forces users to answer math questions before sending regrettable late-night e-mails. It's the trusty, non-judgmental, sober friend you've always wanted. We're not sure where history will place this among the greatest inventions of all time, but we've got to assume it'll rank up there with the toothbrush, indoor plumbing and refrigeration.
Kids, it's time to open your hearts and sharpen your pencils, because the SIOC Mailbag is back. So send in your questions on college sports and college life and we'll pen insightful, moving and witty responses to help you see the light.
Your Idaho Cheer Uniform Update
We've got good news and better news. The good: The Idaho cheerleading scandal is still making headlines, so you don't have to check your voyeuristic tendencies just yet.

Your Zen Item of the Day
A wise woman once said (to us, not to the masses): If a wave crashes and there is no one there to jump it, is it really a wave? Now, we've got a question for all of you: If a man consumes a brat and a beer, is he really a tailgater? The fine folks at Tailgating Ideas say no, but they have put together a questionnaire to help you accurately gauge your own tailgating identity. So head on over, because if you've named your grill, smoked a celebratory shoulder instead of a cigar or raised a kid who can beat any adult at cornhole or washers, you just might be a tailgater yet.

The Man, The Myth, The Doom
Mercifully, the Syracuse Orange were on a bye this weekend. But since AD Daryl Gross (known affectionately as Dr. Doom by the bitter Orange fans) didn't have to preach faith and hope and patience after a brutal loss, was he able to spend time facilitating peace in other arenas?
The Irish go for the Gold
This past weekend, U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez traveled to South Bend to watch his nephew Eric Maust punt for the Irish. But while Martinez's heart grew heavy with emotion and pride, his wallet grew light with -- well, with nothing. Someone jacked it.
The Debate Continues
The Big 12 might have all the Heisman hopefuls, but here's some food for thought: Just because SEC schools lose to each other doesn't mean the SEC's not the best conference.
