CFB Social: Snoop Dogg's UCLA shout-out highlights week

The College Football 24/7 home page and @NFL_CFB Twitter account are great ways to keep up with all the major news surrounding the college game. But what about the things that pop up on social media and don't make the headlines?

Well, we've come to answer that call by scouring Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other social-media networks some coaches can't pronounce to find some of the best posts each week. Here are some of the things that caught our eye this week:

We're a little more than a month away from actual college football games being played, and if you're not excited, you're on the wrong website. If you're looking for something to get you in the mood, though, Washington released this fantastic hype video to get you pumped up and it even features a voice-over from Batman villain Bane.

The MLB All-Star game was held in the Twin Cities this week and naturally Minnesota football was involved in several respects, such as one assistant coach getting a few minutes of TV time at the home run derby.

The All-Star Game wasn't the only big event involving sports and celebrities as the ESPYs took place in Los Angeles. Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston stopped by the festivities and went with a surprisingly conservative -- but clean -- fashion look while walking the red carpet.

The ESPYs wasn't the only awards show in L.A. this week, though -- UCLA coach Jim Mora took us backstage for the Kids Choice Awards that were held just across the street from his office.

Speaking of the Bruins, the team unveiled a new alternative uniform this week and, most importantly, got the seal of approval from rapper Snoop Dogg for the new look. Guess he's no longer a USC fan.

Notre Dame is busy preparing for the upcoming season, and that includes getting the turf ready for action for the first time.

You can tell the summer is wrapping up and fall camp is right around the corner as coaches return from vacation and players get back into town. At Ohio State, head coach Urban Meyer decided that made for some good bonding time and hosted an event at his very nice Columbus house.

However, one coach isn't quite back from vacation yet -- Washington State's Mike Leach was doing Mike Leach things down in Key West.

Summer conditioning workouts for players are still going strong, but USC quarterback Cody Kessler seems to be tired of seeing everybody running around shirtless.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman released a list of the top coaches who are freaks in the weight room and named Louisiana-Lafayette's Mark Hudspeth No. 1. Apparently Temple coach Matt Rhule took things a little personal and ended up pushing himself too hard while working out the next day after learning his place on the list.

SEC Media Days wrapped up this week to signal college football season is just around the corner. Thursday was the final day and brought a huge crowd to Hoover, Ala., with Alabama coach Nick Saban rolling into town. Naturally, things got a little chippy with all the Crimson Tide fans in the lobby, as this hilarious video from al.com's Michael Casagrande illustrates.

In non-crazy fan video news, SEC Media Days also brought us a look at the fancy rings the Missouri Tigers received for winning the East Division and the Cotton Bowl.

Finally, CFB Social is sad to say goodbye to South Carolina running back and darkhorse Heisman candidate Mike Davis as he bids adieu to Twitter.
