In the spirit of spring football

College football fans can never get enough, and in the midst of spring football season, we thought it would be a good time to share three tacky jokes found at to poke fun at your in-state rivals:

Q: What does the average Florida State player get on his SAT's?

A: Drool.

Q: How many Florida freshmen football players does it take to change a light bulb?

A: None. That's a sophomore course.

Q: What do you get when you drag a $1,000 bill through a neighborhood?

A: A Miami football signee.


Wednesday night's McDonald's All-Star game at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee provided a showcase for 24 of next season's college basketball stars. While there is little significance in the East's 107-102 victory, hoops junkies are more concerned how the nation's top high school players might impact their teams or leagues next year. Here's a little statistical breakdown of the rosters:

- The Atlantic Coast Conference had a conference-high eight signees in the game, led by the North Carolina-bound trio of Larry Drew, Tyler Zeller and Ed Davis. Davis and Duke-bound Elliot Williams had 11 and 10 points to lead the ACC contingent;

- The Pac-10 had five play, including UCLA-bound Jrue Holiday (14 pts) and Malcolm Lee.

Interestingly enough, unsigned star Tyreke Evans was selected as MVP on the strength of his 21-point, 10-rebound, four-assist effort. Evans has reportedly narrowed his list of finalists to Texas, Memphis, Villanova and Connecticut.
