Riley Bullough embraces celebrity as Bucs’ cuts loom

Time to come clean, Joe Dirt.

It’s time for linebacker Riley Bullough, who was given that nickname by teammate Blake Sims, to tell everyone what he really thinks of all the attention he’s getting as the trash-talking, blonde hair-flowing star of “Hard Knocks.”

“The one thing that’s happened is more people notice me if I’m out in public maybe if I’m out getting a sandwich or something,” Bullough said Monday. “More people say good luck and things like that. It’s been great so far.”

Bullough, who is sixth on the team with eight tackles this preseason, is expected to see some extended playing in the fourth preseason game when veterans and starters typically take a knee. The former Michigan State star made an instant impact, as captured by “Hard Knocks” cameras, on coaches and teammates. He was singled out in a team meeting by head coach Dirk Koetter for his heart and hustle.

“It was definitely unexpected, especially with it being in a team-meeting setting, me being an undrafted rookie,” Bullough said. “But that’s something I pride myself on, being the guy others can look to and being the vocal guy out there. That’s something I’ve always done.”

Bullough comes from a football family that all played at Michigan State. He followed brother Max there, and younger brother Byron is now a Spartans linebacker. His father Shane and uncle Chuck played there, and his grandfather Hank played for the Spartans and then the Packers in the 1950s and was head coach with the Bills in 1984-85.

“It helps a lot. I have been talking back and forth to my older brother Max every day,” Bullough said. “He’s been through it. The same stuff I’m going through.”

Except his brother never garnered the kind of attention Bullough has from “Hard Knocks.” Although his mother objected to Riley being …read more

Teen Mom: New Jersey is a Real Thing

Teen Mom New Jersey

Remember when we mentioned that MTV was doing more with Teen Mom? It’s now officially confirmed.

What do you do when you want to class up your series? Set it in New Jersey, of course!

Just what the world needed.

Don’t get us wrong — there’s been plenty of entertainment thanks to the Teen Mom cast over the years.

And some of the moms who gave birth in their teens turned out to be great moms and great people, too.

But … have you ever looked at Farrah Abraham and thought “we should have more celebs like this, actually,” let alone thought that she’s the best mom out there?

Or maybe you think that more reality stars and mothers should be like Jenelle Evans?

Well, Teen Mom: New Jersey might open up a whole new can of worms.

To be clear, we don’t know much at all about Teen Mom: New Jersey.

In fact, before this confirmation, we knew that they were filming in New Jersey but weren’t sure if it was going to be another Teen Mom or a 16 and Pregnant.

Either way, though, MTV name-dropped the series during a promo that spent more time on Age-Appropriate Wolf.

(Or you can call it by it’s proper name: Teen Wolf; whatever — that show went off the rails a few seasons ago with that disastrous “Benefactor” story-arc, unfortunately)

The reason that people are concerned about yet another series cropping up is, well, that the lives of other Teen Moms don’t always turn out so well.

The Samsung Note 8 display sets a high bar for the iPhone 8

Samsung is among the best at making displays. And if you need proof beyond its televisions, look no further than its smartphones. Year after year, phone after phone, the company bests its previous efforts and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is no exception to that trend.

According to Display Mate’s in-depth findings, the Note 8’s display is objectively better than anything that’s come out before.

Digging into the details, the Note 8’s large 6.3-inch display is 20% bigger than that found on the Samsung Galaxy S8. It’s also brighter, too, with Display Mate’s research turning up that it pushes 1,200 nits, an all-time high for a smartphone and a whopping 22% brighter than the S8.

But does brighter mean better? Apparently, it does when the Note 8’s screen also boasts a larger native color gamut. This means that like the company’s entertainment-ready 4K OLED televisions, the Note 8 can push more accurate colors for your content, even if you don’t really notice the difference.

The predictable trend may soon be upended

As history would tell us, next year’s Samsung phone will have the best-ever screen. Or will Apple? Rumor has it, the iPhone 8 will be Apple’s first smartphone to feature an OLED display.

In terms of who will earn Display Mate’s accolades, it’s a toss up. Apple’s OLED could be a little less impressive than Samsung given its unfamiliarity with the technology. But then again, it’s Apple we’re talking about here.

If the company is jumping aboard the OLED train, it’s likely going all in, and as a result, is diverting all of its resources and talent to ensure that it’s the best out there. Given that the iPhone 8’s launch event is supposedly just around the corner on September 12, we don’t have long to wait and …read more
