Crib Sheet: Digging In The Dirt

Here we go with another week of the Crib Sheet.  Signing Day is gone so we are looking toward spring practice as the next big event.  Spring practice.  In spring.  We got a long way to go to get there.   So the news will trickle out until then.   Never fear, however, we’ll dig up any dirt with our ninja shovel and flick the dust specs of college football news in your face.   Bring some goggles, here’s this week’s Crib Sheet:

  • You know how they call Kansas State’s stadium the Bill Snyder Family Stadium?  Ever wonder why?  Welp, signing day gave us another reason why when Bill Snyder 2.0′s grandson Tate Snyder accepted a scholarship offer from the Wildcats.  Tate’s dad, Sean, was a punter for Bill Snyder early in his first run and is now an associate in the athletic department.  The little apple does not fall far from this tree.
  • So signing day is over but we have many more to come.  The 2015 class, for example has its first commitment in the form of 13 year old quarterback David Sills as he verbally committed to USC last week.  Huh?  That’s a little young.  His personal coach worked with current USC field general Matt Barkley.  How much are this kid’s parents paying this guy?  Seems like alot of hype for such a young’un.
  • The Texas college stars beat the national squad of stars last Saturday to prove once again that best college football players come from Texas.  For this game.  Yeah it’s the Big 12 area, but why did the SEC win the national title again?  Welp, maybe just the scrubs play this game.  They gotta show off in front of NFL scouts somewhere.
  • The Super Bowl commercial featuring Tim Tebow was rather lame.  Now finally our long national political nightmare is over.  This guy will carry hype wherever he goes.
  • Darrell Scott has come crawling back to the Colorado program.  Okay well, maybe not crawling.  If he sits out this year, Hawkins might be fired by then and he could compete for the job with a new coach.  We guess UCLA wasn’t all that it’s hyped up to be.
  • It looks like the students at Missouri are looking for a live Tiger mascot.  We’d like to think our profile of Truman spurned this movement, but it’s probably more of matching the live mascots that already dot the Big 12 plain.   Yeah, we’re talking Bevo, Ralphie, Boomer, Sooner, and the rest of the gang.  Hopefully, they will pull this one off.  Those live mascots are treated like kings.
