THS Notes: The Tallassee High School wrestlers will soon begin the quest for more titles (individual and team) on the mat. The team was 32-1 in duals matches this season.

Super Sectionals will be in Montgomery on Feb. 12 and 13. The Mat Cats will compete in state competition this weekend at Moody High School.

The area tournament will be at Booker T. Washington in Tuskegee next week (Feb. 8-13) for the Tallassee basketball squad.

The THS baseball team will begin its season at Dadeville with a doubleheader on Feb. 15. Coach Adam Clayton and the Tigers will host a youth camp for 1st - 6th graders from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 6 at Southside Field.

Jed Carter: Coach Clayton sent me some news on former Tigers' pitcher Jed Carter this week. Carter is now with AUM.

Baseball America listed Carter as one of the NAIA's top ten draft prospects. The righthander set the single season strikeout record in his senior year (2013) at Tallassee with 117. His fastball is in the 92-95 mph range.

Jug Band?: The 50th Super Bowl is Sunday. As noted previously in the column, Rusty Baynes will be the line judge for the game. It's his first Super Bowl.

The Tallassee native is in his sixth year with the NFL. Being on the field for the golden anniversary of the biggest event in all of sports must be a thrill and a bit nerve racking, but it brings attention.

NBC's Jimmy Fallon did a joke comparing a few of the game's select officials, including Baynes, with names that sounded like they came from a jug band from the 1930s. When you make the "Tonight Show," you're big time.

Super Ads: Sports Illustrated listed some of the top commercials of all-time for Super Bowls. Among them; the "1984" Apple ad, the VW Darth Vader "Force" ad, and the inaugural Bud Bowl.

My favorite was one that I didn't realize was launched during the Super Bowl. It was from 1979 with Mean Joe Greene giving a kid his sweaty jersey in exchange for a Coke. The two were reunited last week for a photo op. Mean Joe looks like he can still play.

Cam the Flamboyant: Not many players have had the flair of Cam Newton, who will play in his first Super Bowl this weekend. Did you see his zebra print Versace pants?

Josh Peter of USA Todaylikened former Auburn quarterback Newton to former Alabama QB Joe Namath. We remember "Broadway" Joe's fur coat and panty hose. Namath is obviously known for his Super Bowl III guarantee as well.

There's a lot of scrutinizing over Cam's hot dogging. He's not the first to do it though. Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, Mark Gastineau and Icky Woods come to mind.

There was a local survey that asked 100 Auburn fans if Cam's "shenanigans" bothered them. All 100 said absolutely not.

100 Alabama fans were asked the same question with a completeley different result. All 100 couldn't stand it.

Signing Day: The nation's elite high school football stars will make their official declarations on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

The Tide and Tigers are hoping for big finishes with a couple of five stars high on their wish lists.

At Michigan, Jim Harbaugh is bringing in the "Nature Boy" Ric Flair for the Wolverines Signing Day Party.

Another Beatdown: The Tennessee Lady Vols whipped Alabama 70-42 on Sunday. It was the 42nd consecutive win in the series. UT's been good, but come on. I could get a jug band together and win one out of 42.
