The Wisconsin coaching staff dug up some old drill tape of Gary Andersen rocking a mullet

Wisconsin's meetings during fall camp have been filled with coaching legends coming to speak to the team. You've got athletic director Barry Alvarez right there on campus as a great resource, and then Gary Andersen brought former Wisconsin offensive line coach, and Utah head coach Ron McBride on campus to share some words of wisdom.

Both of the speeches were great for the team to hear, and centered on the importance of building team chemistry off the field, but after McBride's speech was over (at about the 3:30 mark), the coaching staff had a little surprise for Andersen.

You see, the staff dug into the film archives and found some drill tape of a young Gary Andersen (mullet, short shorts and all) going through offensive line drills with coach McBride, who recruited him to Utah out of Junior College.

I feel sorry for the guy that cue'd up that clip because the look that Andersen gave him was a killer. Enjoy this one!

Your man cave / film room is incomplete without this furniture

Late last night I was looking through some tweets when I saw this from Mississippi State AD Scott Stricklin.

Stricklin decided to take a walk through Davis Wade stadium last night to check on the status of some projects, and that's when he took this picture of the new Gridiron Field Level Club.

Everything looks pretty standard for club level, but that furniture really stood out to me. It looks like something that you dream about putting in your office or man cave.

Moving 22 of these around to diagram plays would definitely burn some calories and count towards your daily workout (both mentally and physically). Very Nice work on the stadium decor Mississippi State.

Three and out - A perfect line, an interesting take, and 24 names for your fantasy team

Zach: "Jared Lorenzen and I are in love with the same woman. Her name is Little Debbie," is an absolutely perfect lede. And this line, from Hal Mumme, is perfectly Hal. "I just said, 'Eh, nobody made Babe Ruth train.'" ESPN has a touching read on Jared Lorenzen, something of a cult figure to me and my friends (and perhaps you and yours) but a tragic figure in real life, written by Tommy Tomlinson. Check it out.

Scott: Here's an interesting way to do the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Doug: Fantasy sports are a multi-billion dollar industry. In 2012, $1.67 billion was spent on fantasy football alone, and in 2013 25.8 million people played fantasy football. Since it is such a staple, I thought this tweet from Buffalo Wild Wings listing 24 clever fantasy names was worth bringing to your attention. 

My personal favorite? Fumble Bees.

The Power 5 conference head coaches describe their team in one word

ESPN's Brett McMurphy reached out to the head coaches at the Power 5 conferences (ACC, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac 12 and SEC) and asked them to describe their team in one word.

The most used response among coaches was "hungry", used by nine coaches. All told, the 65 coaches gave 44 different responses according to McMurphy.

You can read the full piece here, but just for fun, I split them into some different categories to bring you the best responses.

Coaches entering their first year with their program:

Bobby Petrino (Louisville): Unknown
Dave Clawson (Wake Forest): New
Steve Sarkisian (USC): Tough
Chris Petersen (Washington): Unknown
James Franklin (Penn State): Perseverance
Charlie Strong (Texas): Hard work
Derek Mason (Vanderbilt): Audacious

The "couldn't possibly fit the description into one word" category:

Charlie Weis (Kansas): Quiet confidence
Bob Stoops (Oklahoma): Hard Working
Charlie Weis (Texas): Hard work
Scott Shafer (Syracuse): Hard-nosed
Mike MacIntyre (Colorado): More Confident

My personal favorites of the whole bunch:

David Shaw (Stanford): Underappreciated
Steve Spurrier (South Carolina): Decent
Larry Fedora (North Carolina): Ravenous
Kyle Whittingham (Utah): Warriors
