Purple Yeti Roar 27: A Cold Wind A Blown’ From Up North

It’s getting chilly down here in Austin in the middle of July.  Wah, you say?  Yes, but not that kind of chill.  It’s the kind that’s blowing over college football and it’s coming from Happy Valley.  This week I try to stay warm and protected from the goings on at Penn State as well as talking about Joe Paterno, Jerry Sandusky, NCAA, Iowa, Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, Missouri, Gary Pinkel, Kansas State, and Collin Klein.

Crib Sheet: Closing A Chapter on This Book

Okay so alot of stuff happened over the last week regarding the Penn State Jerry Sandusky situation.  And when I say alot of stuff, I mean alot.  Basically, that school is screwed and it will take forever to rebuild.  I’m sure due process will play out and what not, but it’s passed the point of no longer needing to be covered here.  So let’s cheer up a bit.  I’m going to a live college football game Saturday! I’m already getting stoked because I have some buds coming into town to watch it with me.  In the meantime, here’s this week’s Crib Sheet:

Bowl Pick It and Stick It: Bowlnanza!

Here’s the first standings update for the Bowl Pick It and Stick It.  This time we’re mixing it up a bit and going for straight picks only.  Most of the time the match-ups in bowls are pretty even so it’s a gimmie on who will actually win the game.  I also beat up on people in the regular season with the confidence points addition.  We’ve had 3 games already so the pack is pretty tight.  The main course starts tonight so I’ll run down the games and blab about them as I see fit.  First, let’s go over the standings:

2010 Year End Reviewards

Yes, it’s the 2010 edition and first ever annual KC College GameDay Year End Reviewards!  What’s a revieward?  Welp, it’s a half assed attempt to round up the year in review and then dole out some nameless awards out to who or what I think mattered in the year of college football.  It applies to the regular season only as I really don’t want to come back to this.  At any rate, I’m shooting from the hip so all you midgets our there better watch your heads.

Crib Sheet: Season’s Greetings

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Happy holidays from KC College GameDay!  It’s bowl season and I’ll do a couple of recaps in the next couple of days as well as run down some bowls I’m in to.  In the meantime, we have a fat Crib Sheet so let’s get to it:

Crib Sheet: Camp KCCGD

It’s time to go camping!  The teams are gearing up and we geared up for our own camp adventure last week. :

Mascot Monday: Goldy Gopher

We’re heading up north and the Big Ten for this week’s Mascot Monday.  Goldy Gopher is the main mascot at the University of Minnesota campus.  Once a proud member of the marching band, Goldy now appears at all sporting events.  This week we’ll find out how that happened, as well as why you shouldn’t go too far in mimicking.  We’ll also take a look at what Goldy’s doing to help clean up that mistake.  So hanker on down with your favorite gnawin’ log and join us as we take a look at Minnesota’s own golden child, Goldy.

Crib Sheet: Spring Fever

It’s been a real quiet week.  Hey, the weather’s finally coming around and everyone’s outside doing stuff.  What are we doing at the KCCGD headquarters?  Nothing.  Absolutely nothing.  We’ve been recovering since SXSW and it’s not time yet to do some cleaning.  So we’ve been lounging and laying around soaking up some non conditioned air.  We had just enough energy to pump out another Crib Sheet.  So check it out while we take a nap:

  • Oklahoma State’s Pistol Pete is your new ESPN Radio Mascot Champion.  After taking over the college bracket, Pete beat up Benny the Bull from the Chicago Bulls and the pro side.  Congrats Pete!  Be sure to check up on our review of this guy here.
  • The Kansas Jayhawks have a new deal with IMG that includes a new video board for the stadium.  Hopefully, the screen size will be big enough to fit highlights of former head coach Mark Mangino.
  • Texas A&M students have a shot to play with the big boys on campus this week.  They can catch a touchdown, tackle a runner, and do other things with the football players in the ‘Pigskin Palooza’.  Head coach Tommy Tubberville says this is all in good fun, but we’re thinking he’s secretly looking for more players.  Hey, the military can produce some major athletes, just not general ones.
  • The Little Caesars Bowl continues onward with the re-up of the MAC and the Big Ten.  But it gets a little different after that.  The top MAC team will face the 8th place team in the Big Ten, if that team is eligible.  If not, a Sun Belt Conference team will take its place.  Or, the MAC and Sun Belt will play in the Little Caesars Bowl.
  • Bill Snyder 2.0 came back stronger.  They have the technology to do so.  They will need again apparently.  The Kansas State head coach tore both his MCL and ACL during spring practice.  He even coached the rest of practice after the incident.  This old guy is tough.  Let’s hope he gets a robot leg.
