We've heard about stuffing clowns into cars or frat boys into phone booths — but football players into bowls?

Apparently it's happening at Florida State.

In a teaser on its main page, noted that "20 FSU players might be pulled from bowl."

Either they're making big bowls or tiny football players down there in Tallahassee (or a cheating scandal could keep Seminole players out of the Music City Bowl, but where's the fun in that?).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
