The new starting quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers brings a whole new feel to the Bucs offense. And with the new feel to the Bucs offense, Mike Glennon's girlfriend Jess Wetherill brings a whole new feel to the Wives & Girlfriends section at Raymond James Stadium.

Glennon and Wetherill met while attending NC State, where Mike Glennon took over for a thus far successful NFL QB, Russell Wilson (before Wilson transferred to Wisconsin). Wetherill, who originally hails from Raleigh, NC, has since made the move to Tampa to be with Glennon.

There's not a whole lot known about Jess Wetherill, but Glennon isn't afraid to let the world know about her, often times publicly showing her off (justifiably so), with pictures on Twitter (like most 24 year olds do). Sports Illustrated recounts a story where Mike attempted to do a Jersey Turnpike while dancing at a bar, only to have him hip check Jess to the ground where she explained, "I hit my head and got a concussion."

Beyond that, not a whole lot more is known. We will admit to being fans of her Twitter bio, "its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring" Yup, we buy it.

Doug Martin's Girlfriend: The Reason We Have Muscle Hamster

I think we’re all in agreement with Doug Martin that he needs a new nickname. All I really think of when I hear “Muscle Hampster” is that stupid Hamster dance song from the late 90s (good luck getting that out of your head now). In addition to it being annoying, Doug Martin’s ex-girlfriend is the reason he got the nickname in the first place.

While attending Boise State, Martin was at one point dating a gymnast. One day, Martin’s fellow Bronco was giving his girlfriend a hard time about her short and fit physique, calling her a muscle hamster. When Martin stood up for her, the friend decided to call him a muscle hamster as well because he is… you guessed it, short and fit. So much for chivalry, huh? Worst of all, he was stuck with the nickname even after they broke up.

Martin is no stranger to nicknames. He says growing up that his mother called him Bam Bam due to his destructive nature as a child (NFL teams will note that nothing has changed). Martin also went by Matthew growing up, which is his middle name, because his father was also named Doug.

Martin attended Boise State for four years and graduated in 2011. He was drafted 31st overall by Tampa Bay in the 2012 draft. After a somewhat slow start, he busted out against Oakland in Week 9 with 251 yards and 4 TDs. At this time, it looks like Martin is single. Maybe he learned from past nickname disasters and is waiting for a new name before settling down with a new lady. So let’s go Bucs fans, get your franchise-potential running back a name worthy of his skills.

How long will he last?

That has to be the question every fan in Tampa Bay and around the NFL is asking about Greg Schiano's tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As most of you already know, the track record of college to NFL coaches is not very good, especially recently. Nick Saban couldn't cut it in Miami and Bobby Petrino crawled his way back to the college game after a whopping 13 games with the Atlanta Falcons. Even the ones that stick around for a bit tend to not have much luck (All Seahawk fans are shaking their head in agreement).

So what makes Greg Schiano different? What makes him the one that will not only stick in the NFL but also win? Time will only tell on that question but right now Greg is building the Tampa Bay Bucs in the only fashion he knows how, with hard work and long hours. Luckily for Greg he has family to fall back on.

Greg Scchiano is married to Christy Schiano, formerly Christy Mitchell. The couple hasfour kids, Joey, John, Matt, and Katie. You could actually make the case that Greg, Christy and the four kids have another family member in Eric LeGrand. For those not familiar with Eric, he was a player at Rutgers under Schiano who hurt himself in a game and is now paralyzed. Greg and Eric, along with all of Greg's family, became tight in the trying months after the injury. When Greg sat down to discuss the Tampa job with his family one of the questions the kids had was what would happen with Eric? Well turns out Greg had a plan. Eric was signed by the Bucs and retired a Buc so he could fulfill his dream of being on an NFL team. Eric will also be a common visitor to the Schiano household anytime he comes down to the Tampa area.

As for Greg and Christy they met while both attended Bucknell (Greg class of '88 and Christy class of '90). During their time at Rutgers Greg and Christy made many contributions to the community, including a $250,000 donation to the Rutgers Future Scholars Program.
