Solve This Puzzle
If Colt McCoy's face inexplicably flashes into your mind whenever you're trying to solve a Rubik's Cube, you're not alone. Sako knows that around this time, two thoughts consume most minds: Who's going to win the Heisman, and what should I buy so-and-so for the holidays? It's only natural, then, that he decided to combine the two and put together a list of Heisman contenders and the holiday gifts they match with best. If you ask us, Graham Harrell is definitely the coolest gift. It's all right to be a bulldog (like Tebow) or a G.I. Joe (like Bradford), but being a Lite Brite is downright awesome.
Underwear: Don't Leave Home Without Them
We've got a fair bit of underwear news for you today, kids. First, students at Allegheny College decided to show their support for the environment by plastering bras and underwear all over town. There's a method behind their madness, we assure you. Secondly, we told you yesterday that a UCLA undie run is imminent, but the kids at Tufts beat the Bruins to it. We were a tad alarmed to hear these kids were dashing around in their skivvies in below-freezing temperatures, but SI.com's Bryan Graham assured us hot cocoa was provided.
Signs of the Past

SIOC, Solving Mysteries The World Over
Yesterday, we told you about The Big Lead's "the media's love affair with Tyler Hansbrough and Tim Tebow has got to end" rant. Today, we're telling you about Bleacher Report's "Tyler Hansbrough and Tim Tebow are alter egos" theory. Think about it. Have we ever seen these two kids in the same place at the same time? Negative. We're guessing B/R thinks orange hair dye and cleverly concealed stilts are involved, but we know the sure way to prove this true or false. Look to see if Hansbrough nuzzles his head against his teammates after a big play or big win. If not, he's not Tebow. Remember kids, there's always a tell. Stomping conspiracy theories is a tough job, but someone's got to do it.
Primed For Success
In case you haven't noticed, there's been a lot of discussion and debate about who deserves to take home the Heisman trophy. While the folks at Major League Jerk were sitting back thinking about how Heisman success doesn't always translate to pro success, they decided to look at which awards do. If you're a Hobey Baker award winner, congratulations. You're going to have a fine, fine professional hockey career.
BCS Haters, Unite!
It's been a big week for BCS bashers. Yesterday, Congressman Joe Barton of Texas announced his intention to introduce anti-BCS, pro-playoff legislation in the House of Representatives. In case you're wondering, Barton didn't specify what type of playoff he wants, only that the BCS must go. Sort of gave off a store closing "EVERYTHING MUST GO!" vibe. A few days prior, the BCS Watchdog launched a Web site dedicated to ridding the world of the BCS' ills. We like the site's mascot, Ruff. It looks like he's smiling and contemplating murder at the same time.
Tennessee Athletics, This Is Not SIOC Talking
Is it flattering or really insulting when a blogger tells the world a certain woman looks exactly like a certain porn star? Guess you'll have to ask Layla Kiffin.

Odds and Ends
Dance, Dance Revolution
