Georgia’s men’s basketball coach Mark Fox got pretty upset with the Bulldogs’ student section Saturday afternoon. His team is facing Auburn in Athens, Ga. During the second half of the contest, Georgia’s students began chanting at Tigers’ coach Bruce Pearl. This did not please Fox, who proceeded to yell at the Georgia student section, asking them to stop. Georgia students were chanting something about Bruce Pearl, couldn’t hear what. Whatever it was, Mark Fox asked them to stop.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) February 14, 2015It appears the Bulldogs’ students were chanting “Bruce Pearl Sucks!”Part of student section starts chanting “Bruce Pearl sucks” during Auburn free throw. Mark Fox walks over & yells at them to stop. #class— Wilson Alexander (@Alexander_taGr8) February 14, 2015That’s a pretty classy move from Fox. Student sections can be fairly mean-spirited. Georgia and Auburn are currently playing on FSN.
NEW ORLEANS, LA – JANUARY 01: Ezekiel Elliott #15 of the Ohio State Buckeyes runs the ball against the Alabama Crimson Tide during the All State Sugar Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 1, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Update: Ohio State fans, I am sorry to report that Ezekiel Elliott is no longer undefeated.Zeke-0 . . . Sea Sickness-98473626256— EzekielElliott (@EzekielElliott) May 16, 2015Earlier: Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott is having himself a full weekend. He and Braxton Miller coached at an all-star camp in South Carolina, he caught a small shark during a fishing trip, and he took some time out of his day to troll Michigan fans on Twitter.Looks about right pic.twitter.com/BswrgQ9p84— EzekielElliott (@EzekielElliott) May 16, 2015Of course, he got some responses from Wolverine fans, but he dealt with those pretty effectively as well.It have a national championship ring and two pair of gold pants ? https://t.co/3mG9P2Nsf9— EzekielElliott (@EzekielElliott) May 16, 2015So, by my count, Elliott is up 3-0 on sharks (he has since tweeted about a few more catches during his fishing trip), 2-0 against Michigan on the field, and at least 1-0 against fans on Twitter? There are far too many scores to keep up with here.

Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorMany dream, but only few get the opportunity to play the game they love for a living. After a successful four years stepping on the court for the Ohio State women’s basketball program, Ameryst Alston will now have the chance to do just that.Alston, a 5-foot-9 combo guard, was selected as the No. 24 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 WNBA draft Thursday evening by the New York Liberty. With the WNBA’s season beginning June 5, Alston will move out to New York City to begin the new chapter in her basketball career.As a Buckeye, Alston was an essential piece to the roster, immediately having an impact on the team’s success when she arrived to Columbus.Not only did Alston help lead the Scarlet and Gray to wins, but also solidified her name in the program’s record books.To start, Alston scored her 2,000th career point in her senior campaign, finishing as the No. 4 scorer in program history with 2,165 total points. She also ranks No. 7 in career assists with 455 and No. 3 in games played with 134.The Canton native was recognized throughout her collegiate career at the conference and national levels. Alston was selected to the All-Big Ten freshman team her first year with OSU, honored on the All-Big Ten first team three times and earned national player of the week for the week of Feb. 15.Alston is the first Buckeye to get drafted in the WNBA since Samantha Prahalis in 2012, who was selected as the sixth overall pick by the Phoenix Mercury.
As we all know, one of college football’s most anticipated games is upon us. The Buckeyes will face the Trojans in the ‘Shoe this weekend, to try and gain some revenge after their defeat in Southern California last year. We all know what Ohio State fans are talking about, revenge, home field advantage, freshman quarterback, new defense, etc. But what about those USC fans? What are they talking about? Roy Manukyan is a junior at the University of Southern California studying accounting. He has grown up in the Los Angeles area and has always been a USC fan. A year ago, Roy was predicting big things out of running back Joe McKnight, and predicting a close USC win over Ohio State. But after last year’s performance, what are students at USC thinking and feeling about this weekend’s big show? “USC students are confident and excited,” Manukyan said. “Because of the result of the last game, there seems to be a lower level of excitement than a year ago. There is no question, however, that this game is much more meaningful to the future of the USC Trojans.” However, Maukyan was a little more hesitant to admit personal belief in an easy USC victory. “We are expecting a victory, though my personal opinion is that it is going to be much more difficult than most students anticipate,” he said. Coach Jim Tressel is highly regarded around Ohio State, but lately, some have been questioning his decision-making. Tressel does not have a great record in non-conference games on the national stage. But, nonetheless, you can find t-shirts that read “In Tressel we Trust,” or posters boasting Tressel’s impressive record against Michigan. Coach Pete Carroll is arguably one of the most impressive and successful coaches in college football, and that idea is not lost on USC students. “The general mantra around campus is ‘In Carroll We Trust,’” Manukyan said. That is what Manukyan, along with other USC students and fans tell themselves when they consider that USC is playing their first true freshman at starting quarterback in 11 years since Carson Palmer took the reins in five starts in 1998.Matt Barkley, who played and started his first college football game in USC’s season opener against San Jose State, is the first true freshman to ever start in a USC season opener. Barkely was 15-of-19 for 233 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Trojan’s 56-3 victory over San Jose State. “Most people were holding their breath when Barkley took the field against San Jose State, and after Barkley got over his first quarter jitters he really proved himself to the USC fans,” Manukyan said. “If he can maintain his solid first game performance and keep his veins icy I think he should do just fine.” But, despite his confidence in the young quarterback, Manukyan said that most fans are expecting Carroll to play conservatively against Ohio State, with a lot of runs, screen plays and short passes. “I don’t think Pete is going to let Barkley throw bombs downfield,” Manukyan said. “At least not early in the game.” As for the young and inexperienced Trojan defense, Manukyan said that USC fans believe the core is much more solid than the nation is giving them credit for. “USC has traditionally had problems with scrambling quarterbacks, and I think Jim is going to let Pryor be Pryor,” Manukyan said. “But, one thing that Jim is not going to do is let Pryor throw the ball anywhere within twenty feet of Taylor Mays.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise that USC fans are confident in their team and coach. But with a freshman quarterback and a defense that is missing eight of last season’s starters, everything is up in the air heading into this weekend’s battle. Luckily for the Buckeyes, the likes of Manukyan will be in the minority on Saturday as around 100,000 Buckeye fans will fill Ohio Stadium, ready to cheer their team to victory.
