Florida Fan Bride Uses Wedding Cake to Pull a Fast One on Alabama Fan Groom

via College Spun

It's no secret that football rules life for SEC fans. For Robert Sabin and Amanda Perryman, football was a way to mess with each other at their wedding.

Sabin and Perryman recently tied the knot and became husband and wife. Luckily for them, their love for each other outweighs their love for their respective schools.

Perryman is a graduate of the University of Florida, while Sabin, conveniently, is a fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide. Just imagine what football season is like for that household.

Sabin found a way to show off his fandom at their wedding. The groom's cake featured Alabama coach Nick Saban holding a BCS championship trophy and riding an elephant at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Because Roll Tide.

Well, according to College Spun's Matt Lombardi, Perryman somehow found out about the cake and decided it would be the perfect opportunity to prank her husband. After she learned about the Crimson Tide-themed cake, she had the bakers dye the inside of the cake orange and blue—Florida colors.

SC's DLine May Go From Very Bad to Very Good

Dante Sawyer's road to major college football took a slight detour, but after a stop at East Mississippi Community College to get his academics in order, Sawyer appears to be mere weeks away from enrolling at South Carolina.

Sawyer, who took 24 credit hours this past semester in an effort to get to Columbia as fast as possible, just has to complete a couple of online courses, which he says he will, likely by the end of this week, before he'll start South Carolina's Summer I program on June 1.
Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Defensive end Dante Sawyer will be a welcomed addition to South Carolina's defense.
"It's just a big relief, because of what I had to go through this past year school-wise," Sawyer said to GamecockCentral.com on Thursday. "This past semester I was doing 24 hours. Nobody really does 24 hours, that's unheard of. It's a relief and I'm glad I did that."

In a calculated move, the former four-star standout defensive end left North Gwinnett High School early and obtained his G.E.D. before heading to East Mississippi last February. That allowed him to get started on his junior college course load, which in turn allowed him to spend one season there instead of two.

The move appears set to pay off for both Sawyer and the Gamecocks, who are in need of pass-rushers with the size and ability of Sawyer.

Sawyer, who was originally recruited out of high school by recruiter of record G.A. Mangus, has stayed in contact with his future position coach, South Carolina defensive line coach Deke Adams.

The two now have a bond that goes beyond a typical player-coach relationship, Sawyer says.

"We talk to each other every day," Sawyer said. "He's been loyal to me. He's the one who's been on my back throughout the whole time I've been at junior college. He was the main one calling me and coming to check on me and making sure I was on top of everything that I needed to stay on top of.

"He was right there. He was on me all the time and consistently letting me know, 'If you do what you need to do, then the sky's the limit.' He said, 'That spot can be yours.' He planted it in my mind that I could be starting Sept. 3."

As excited as Sawyer is about getting to Columbia, Adams has to be just as pumped to add a pass-rusher like Sawyer to the position.

The Gamecocks, who totaled just 14 sacks as a team in 2014, lacked the pass-rushers they've typically had who could defeat blockers and disrupt a quarterback's rhythm. Sawyer could provide just that.

Sawyer was ranked the No. 7 strongside defensive end in the country by Rivals.com out of high school. He was also considered the No. 87 overall prospect in his class and the No. 7 overall prospect in Georgia. When the competition took a step up, Sawyer responded with three sacks in the Army All-American game.

Sawyer, who played inside this past season, added 21 tackles and 6.5 sacks in 11 games for East Mississippi, hopes to team up with Marquavius Lewis, a fellow four-star JUCO product who joined South Carolina this past spring.

Sawyer, who will be a true sophomore with four to play three, has talked with Adams about how he could be used in 2015.

"He has said it could be me on one side and Marquavius on the other side," Lewis said. "Most of the time when we talked, it was about school, because that was my main focus. Football is always going to come. It was always 'school, school,' but he always reminded me, 'It could be you on one side and Qua on the other, it's up to you to make the decisions.'"

Sawyer, who is originally from Suwanee, Ga. is also looking forward to reconnecting with South Carolina sophomore linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams.

"That's like my brother," Sawyer said. "We're going to reek havoc this year, I know that for sure. We do some of the same things, we feed off of each other's energy while we're on the same field. We played in the Rising Seniors game and then in the All-American game and we both went ham. We did what we needed to do, because we feed off of each other and we know how each other player. It's going to hard for some teams to handle that, I know that."

That will be a welcome sight for fans of a South Carolina defense that should be much-improved from a season ago.

Sawyer, who says he's currently 268 pounds and hopes to play in the 275-pound range, hopes to make an immediate impact.

"I'm already talking to my trainer back at home, we're going to be working out two times a day and take one day off [per week]," Sawyer said. "I'm going to be physically ready, mentally ready and everything just to come in and try to start from day-one."

Sawyer, who says loyalty from coaches like Adams and Mangus, as well as the atmosphere in Columbia led him to Carolina, has big goals for his time there.

"I'm hoping to bring an SEC Championship along the way," Sawyer said. "That's one of the biggest things I want to do, because it's never been done at South Carolina. I'm all about winning. I'm a winning type of guy, I love to win. I mean who isn't? But I'm going to do whatever it takes, so that we can win."

Dante off the field...

GC: What do you like to do off the field that doesn't have anything to do with football?

DS: When I'm at home, I hang out with special needs kids a lot. That's one of my favorite things to do. I've got a little -- well, I call him my 'little brother,' we're always hanging out -- as a matter of fact, we've got a dance that's coming up this Friday. Doing that and little stuff like that. I also like playing FIFA and playing X-Box a lot.

GC:Do you have a secret talent?

DS: I like to sing. (laughs) Nah. I don't really have any extra talents.

GC: What is your favorite food?

DS: I like Rotel. I know that's not a food, but I can eat Rotel all day, the dip. You get some nacho cheese Doritos, and start dipping it into the Rotel. If I had to choose, it would be chicken Alfredo pasta, I love pasta.

GC: Do you have a favorite pro athlete or team?

DS: James Harrison is my favorite NFL player. I try to work as hard as he does. I follow him on Instagram, I follow him everywhere. When he's on the field, he's got that mentality of I'm going to kill that guy in front of me. That's how I want to be."

GC: What is your favorite TV show?

DS: My favorite TV show right now would be 'The Office.' I go on Netflix and I can watch that all day. I just got started on it.
