"Smokey, this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules."

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

So. There's no bowl games today, right? Well. Right, then. In the run up to some bowl games and some pre-bowl preparations there were some shenanigans. Trey Williams and Caden Smith got to show Memphis that they have some pretty spectacular voices, winning a singing contest held at the welcoming party. I am confident that the singing contest was the official measure of who wins the Liberty Bowl and that this football is just a formality. Even with all that friviolity, the guys did practice and AggieFBLife posted some neat pics here. (Sorry for linking you to Facebook, leave your outraged comments there.)

And the haters gonna hate, hate hate, hate, hate. Yesterday, controversy ruffled burnt orange feathers in Houston when Arkansas Head Coach and beard scruffmeister, Bret Bielema aledgedly threw a downwards hook 'em during a posed handshake with Texas Head Coach Charlie Strong. Some folks said that he didn't, some said that the image was photoshoped, and some said that it was really dumb to be obsessing over the position of two fingers that is only offensive to a population of people that made the terrible decision that burnt orange is a good color. (That was me, I said that.) Senior Good Bull Hunting credentialed media person and temporary Arkansas Fight correspondent Cuppycup, was among the mix and happened to have missed getting you a photo from your most trusted visual media source, GBH. Today, there is over whelming evidence that it did occur which leaves the question: did he do it by accident or did he do it on purpose? Yeah, I still can't care about this, but I'm cool with Bielema taking a jab at that other school in Austin. BTHO, t.u., Arky.

I'll leave you with some feel good for your Sunday as some of the team visit St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
