Pick It And Stick It: Championing The Pick

Big 12 Media Day

After a turkey induced coma, I’m back!  It’s the last big week of the season.  Yup, it’s championship weekend!  Except for the Big 12.  They have a kinda, sorta, championship weekend.  I’ll be personally overseeing this as well to make sure it’s kinda, sorta, awesome.  But until I make that trip to Waco, I’m going to run down how I think things will shake out.

Pick It And Stick It: Stuffed With Games

stuffed

So it’s Thanksgiving weekend which makes it kinda funny that it’s also Hate Week.  We give thanks to what we have in this world and what’s to come, but at the same time we also unleash the rivalry hatred that builds up within us the whole fall.  It’s quite exhilarating.  We have joy and, half the time, have some hate joy.  I can’t explain it.  I’m just enjoying the ride.  And the turkey.

Pick It And Stick It: Gettin’ Started Early This Week

times

Ah yes, Kansas State once again has a Thursday night game, this time against West Virginia, so it’s time to roll back that schedule and get to prepping early.  I’ll actually be going out so you may see a return Barspotting.  Exciting, right?  But you never know, I could do some feeding action this weekend too.  I blame the early start, college football.

Pick It And Stick It: Let’s Get Ready TOOOO

Okay I can’t quote that exactly but I think you get the point.  This week we go from the backswing of the season to the full on, follow through punch to knock ourselves into the College Football Playoff.  Teams are teetering and are starting to fall (Ole Miss).  This weekend others will fall as room for error is no more.  We will find out who’s Rocky and who’s a tomata.  Ding. Ding.

Pick It And Stick It: I Need A Barf Bag

070312_53_MSY_Dee_Barf_Bag

Now it’s time for full football mode. I was distracted by the Kansas City Royals doing the unthinkable, only to lose on the last out of the last game, but I’m back and ready to put my full focus on college football. The timing merges gracifully with the timing of the College Football Playoff coming out with their Top 25 rankings. Do I have issues with that? Will Kansas State roll this weekend? How about any upsets? Let’s find out. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: I Need A Barf Bag

Purple Yeti Roar 96: Blowout Sandwiches

deli_sandwich

Yeah I was out of town this weekend, so I didn’t get to see much football.  I did, however, see enough to get a taste of them greasy ass blowout sandwiches.  There was plenty to go around this weekend.  Watch me talk about Kansas State, Oklahoma, Trevor Knight, Baylor, Oklahoma State, Kansas, Jake Sims, Iowa State, SEC, Big 12, Pac 12, Florida, Georgia Southern, Oregon, Arizona, Florida State, Alabama, and Ohio State.

Purple Yeti Roar 47: It’s My Kansas State Round Up

What can I say?  It’s been a quiet week news wise.  Sure the New Mexico Bowl and Famous Idaho Potato Bowl took place over the weekend, but there really wasn’t anything else.  I make do, however, and spend most of the time talking about Kansas Sate.  Look for that and Arizona, Nevada, RichRod, Bill Snyder, Kansas, Charlie Weiss, Penn State, Alabama, Texas, Iowa, and Hayden Fry Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 47: It’s My Kansas State Round Up

Pick It And Stick It: Sensory Overload Weekend

Ho man, finally we get into the meat of college football.  Last week, it was trap time.  Now it’s the real deal.  I can’t keep my homer-ism down.  I’m  full tilt on Kansas State vs Oklahoma this weekend.  And what’s about to launch me out of my chair is that we are also treated to Notre Dame vs Michigan.  It’s a shame they are on at the same time.  Yup, it’s gonna to be a massive weekend and I’ll try to pick and stick my way through it.

Purple Yeti Roar 34: Week 02 Recap is Jamacain Spice VooDoo

I come to you a little late and recovering from the spicy voodoo that was week 2 in college football.  My Kansas State Wildcats surprised everyone, including me, by blowing out the Miami Hurricanes.  The rest of the Big 12 was ho hum and I even got to see the SEC look a little silly.  All that and some tasty buffalo wing reactions coming up.  Quick apology for the quiet audio as well. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 34: Week 02 Recap is Jamacain Spice VooDoo

Pick It and Stick It: We’ve Gone To Preview Mode

Why preview mode?  Because I’m tired of doing the ole cut and paste from the Yahoo Fantasy College Football Pick’Em, that’s why.  But I certainly don’t want to leave a gap in the ole coverage of this weekend’s game.  Yeah, I missed last weekend, but it was Labor Day so I didn’t really work.  I’m ready to stick it this week, so let’s find out what I think about this weekend’s games.  Follow along on the the ESPN Schedule.

Crib Sheet: Twas The Night Before Thanksgiving

And all through the house, pumpkin pie was baking and I was aroused (with hunger).  Yup, it’s that time of year again.  This year, I’m planning on laying back and actually watching some competitive football.  For once it will be both for the NFL and college football.  So there’s been a feast of news leading up to turkey day and I wrapped it up in a big ole slice of Crib Sheet.  It’s kinda like fish and chips, but with college football news and less of stink.  I hope.  Here is this week’s fresh Crib Sheet:

Pick It and Stick It 2011 Week 11: Saucy Selections

Oh yeah!  I’m already thinking about what to do for the tailgating experience this weekend.  I’m not sure if we actually have a spot to smoke some meat so we may be grilling guerilla style.  What does that mean?  Slapping some meat in a backpack and finding some friendlies for grilling.  It should be quite the adventure.  Speaking of adventure, the corner has turned for Bryce Brown for Heisman.  It’s up to the rest of the league to catch up.  Let’s take a look at the pick set: Continue reading Pick It and Stick It 2011 Week 11: Saucy Selections

Stadiumspotting: Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium

Alrighty, I’ve been waiting for this all year.  This week Kansas States heads to my new hometown in Austin to take on the Texas Longhorns at Darrel K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.  It’s going to be another epic battle because that’s what the Wildcats to me and my heart.  The spread is 10 points in Texas favor.  I don’t know why but I’m okay with that.  Kansas State have been underdogs all year around.  Amongst the gamesmanship, this will be my first trip to the stadium.  I’m very curious how the Longhorns treat visitors as well as how they whole football experience stacks up there. It’s gonna be a great time.

Pick It Standings 2011 Week 10: Game of the Century

I’m still holding the flag up high for last week’s Game of the Century.  No, it wasn’t LSU vs Alabama, but it was Oklahoma State hosting Kansas State.  The mistakes in both games were costly but the ones in Stillwater provided for actual touchdowns and way more drama.  The dram in Tuscaloosa was mostly hype.  Seriously, how can a kicker missing 4 field goals be that exciting?  It certainly isn’t to me.  On the other hand, it took a goal line stand for Oklahoma State to stop Kansas State at the end of regulation.  It was just a better game and more deserving of the century title.  Now on to the results for the week:
