As far as turf wars go between professional franchises, this one is pretty weak. On the other hand, it's because it's so weak that it's kind of amazing that the Jaguars even bothered. After the Patriots found out their 2015 opponents, their social media team hopped on Facebook to let fans know their home and away foes. The Jaguars didn't like what they saw on the post. Was it a slight to Jacksonville's abilities? Perhaps a snide comment about an automatic win? A dig at the fine city of Jacksonville? No, it was the use of the wrong helmet/logo that got the Jaguars wound up. How did they respond? Not by e-mail or a phone call, but in the comments. The official team account, posting a complaint in the midst of fan comments. We're not sure what's worse: The Pats not putting up the right helmet, or the Jaguars complaining about it in such a strange way.
No one wears a pair of khakis like Jim Harbaugh. Would it even surprise anyone if he wears them to bed? We've gotten so used to his uniform in San Francisco, it goes without saying that we're going to be curious about his outfits at Michigan. Dockers, the official pants supplier of the Harbaugh family, doesn't want Sarah Harbaugh or the rest of us to fret. They've got Jim covered, and tweeted to make sure everyone knows not to panic.
Oklahoma football fans were panicking during a 40-6 blowout loss to Clemson in the Russell Athletic Bowl on Monday, and the Oklahoma County Sheriff felt their pain. The law enforcement agency tweeted out a note to say that while it understood why Sooner fans would want a drink or four to drown their sorrows, it would be wise to remember not to drink and drive. Smart, if not a little sad.
