After just recently launching its new Tsugi Shinsei silhouette, PUMA is returning to its classic Clyde sneaker for a collaboration with artist Sam Rodriguez. 1800 Tequila provided the inspiration for the color choices on the sneaker -- a light blue upper, suede toe, and silver heel tab reference the brand’s bottle. Due to launch on Cinco de Mayo, the shoe's print merges Mayan and Aztec sculpture found throughout Mexico with Sam's signature graffiti-style art. The collaboration is limited to 1,...
We love so much and sometimes, little acts just make us all sorts of emotional and stuff. We’re still hard guys though We came across this tweet that had us screaming goals all over the whole place because it’s so adorable. My father is the definition of Husband Goals

Welcome to The Rammer Jammer, SEC Country’s daily Alabama athletics recap. Today, we look at Alabama’s prospects as the NFL draft begins. The annual four-day celebration of Nick Saban’s recruitment and development skill called the NFL draft commences on Thursday. The top end of the draft isn’t as Alabama heavy as years past, but the first night could still see as many as five players selected, joining the 18 Alabama players chosen in the first round under Saban. Jonathan All...
What would happen if Google merged with Facebook to create an all-knowing social network? The result might look a lot like The Circle, a company that can invade every last corner of our private lives. In the movie The Circle, which comes out Friday, Emma Watson and Tom Hanks show us what such a tech hell would feel like--where “privacy is theft” and "secrets are lies," and where a corporation like Facebook or Google could force governments to bow entirely to their will. Based on the ...
Nigerian twitter is too lit! So we told you that the Oba of Lagos snubbed the Ooni of Ife when he tried to greet him. The funny thing is, the Ooni of Ife is higher in rank than the Oba of Lagos and was not even supposed to greet him in the first place. @_achmed started a thread on Kings/Obas that are greater than the Oba of Lagos and the awesome people of Nigerian twitter started adding their own tweets to it. Check out the amazing thread. 1. The tweet that started it all A short thread of Kin...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Caleb Brantley is without question the biggest draft loss for the Florida Gators. Brantley had a breakout season in 2016, his second year as a starting defensive tackle. He flourished under the tutelage of Chris Rumph and filled the void left by Jonathan Bullard, a third-round selection in last year’s draft. Regardless of when or where Brantley is selected, he should be the latest Florida defensive lineman to make an impact in the NFL. Here’s a closer look at the f...
Jalen “Teez” Tabor spent the last two seasons at Florida proving himself on the field as one of the best cornerbacks in college football. He was once projected as a likely first-round NFL Draft pick and the top prospect from a deeply talented Gators draft class. But with a few lackluster times in the 40-yard dash, first at the NFL Scouting Combine (4.62) and then at Florida’s pro day (reportedly in the 4.7s), Tabor started tumbling down the mock drafts. After that pro day exper...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Quincy Wilson came to Florida as a 3-star safety and left the Gators with first-round cornerback talent. Recruiting analysts and scouts projected Wilson to play in the back-end of Florida’s secondary, but he solidified himself as a lock-down SEC corner. Wilson cracked the starting lineup as a true freshman and started 24 of his 39 career games. He earned second-team All-SEC honors as a junior, finishing the 2016 season with 33 tackles, 6 pass breakups, 3 intercep...
After choosing to return for his senior season to boost his NFL Draft stock, Florida linebacker Jarrad Davis was undermined halfway through the campaign by a significant ankle injury. He would miss 4 of the final 5 games, with a limited return to action in the SEC Championship Game against Alabama. But he’s only seen his draft stock soar since the end of the season. Between making a positive impression in interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine and matching that with strong testing numbers...
The 2017 NFL Draft is finally here as the first round takes place today, April 27. The NFL draft will be held in Philadelphia and the Cleveland Browns have the first overall pick. A number of former SEC stars will find new homes, such as Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett or LSU’s Jamal Adams. Of course, if North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is drafted with the No. 1 overall pick, it could throw everything out of order. However, 1 SEC prospect likely will tumble down the draft,...
The 2017 NFL Draft starts Thursday, April 27, and there’s a handful of intriguing but flawed quarterbacks available. North Carolina’s Mitchell Trubisky is being considered by the Cleveland Browns as the first overall pick, but questions remain about him because he spent one season as a starter. Clemson QB Deshaun Watson comes off a national championship season, after reaching the title game the year before. But scouts believe  Watson is a work in progress. Notre Dame’s D...
The 2017 NFL Draft begins Thursday, April 27, and its crop of running backs has the potential to be one of the best in years. LSU’s Leonard Fournette is touted as the No. 1 overall running back prospects. Some scouts have even mentioned Fournette as a possible No. 1 overall pick. After Fournette, Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey and Florida State’s Dalvin Cook are the second- and third-best running back prospects, based on draft analysts’ evaluations. Tennessee RB Alv...
A white university student was reported to campus anti-bias police for allegedly looking at someone in a racist way. The female student was shopped to officials at the University of Wisconsin Madison for “glaring” at Asian-American peers. The complaints were submitted to the university’s bias incident reporting system, a system creeping onto most American university campuses. It encourages students to formally each other whenever they perceive that someone’s speech or behav...

To celebrate President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, long running animated series The Simpsons have took it upon itself to pay tribute to the country's current leader. In the short parody, The Simpsons cover a lot of Trump's time in office so far. From his absurd Twitter use, immigration policies and health care cuts, check out the dystopia that is Trump’s America in the parody video above. Also jumping on the bandwagon, Stephen Colbert hilariously places Donald Trump into the viral...
