Dart Board Predictions for 2014: From The Ashes Comes A New Set Of Arrows


Hey guess what?  I’m back!  No Purple Yeti Roar, no previews (yet), and not much fanfare.  Let’s be real here, I’m distracted by the the Kansas City Royals actually being in a pennant race.  But also I’m tired of the vlogging business.  Plus the picks and the feedings felt a bit tired.  But I’m back regardless with some tasty predictions.

Purple Yeti Roar 94: Keep Laying That Wood


I got up way early in the morning for college football last week, but I also took some time out Thursday to watch some games as well.  It was better than Saturday.  But hey, at least Kansas State kept laying that wood.  I’ll talk about them as well as Texas Tech, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Texas, Case McCoy, Jonathan Gray, Malcom Brown, West Virginia, TCU, Iowa State, LSU, Alabama, Michigan, Nebraska, Bo Pelini, and Brady Hoke.

Purple Yeti Roar 15: Cold Drafts Help Make Me Sick

Man I don’t even remember what I was talking about.  The drugs kind of knocked me out.  Oh wait, I think it was something about the NFL Draft, Kansas State, the BCS, The Rose Bowl, the Liberty Bowl, and Bo Pelini.  Something else is in there but I dig through the discarded facial tissues to get it. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 15: Cold Drafts Help Make Me Sick

Crib Sheet: Coaches Poll Leaves No Surprises

The ESPN/USA Today coaches preseason bowl came out and there’s no surprise with Oklahoma notched at number 1.  That happened a couple of years ago and they lost their first game.  Yup, it doesn’t matter who’s where right now, but what matters is that it’s the horn blasting the announcement that the college football season is ramping up for real now.  Another thing to note, the Big 12/0  has half of their teams in the Top 25.  Usually they have 6 but since a couple of teams left, they can only muster 5.  Fair enough, on to this week’s Crib Sheet:

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:

Pick It and Stick It Week 14: Championship Pickers

It’s a light week as most of the teams are done and the rest of the action is either rivalry or conference championship.  That’s okay for the Pick It and Stick It as the last week will give us some great match ups to pick.  Now with the last week of Pick It and Stick It, we are now getting into Bowl Season.  With that in mind, we have a Bowl Pick It and Stick It set up at Yahoo again this year.  We’ll give you the deets after we go over the tasty picks for this weekend.

Crib Sheet: A Thanksgiving Feast

Ho boy do we have a feast of news for you to munch in this Thanksgiving edition of the Crib Sheet.  There should be enough left over to keep you fed over the whole weekend as there is college football on pretty much all of the time.  Grab a bib and get ready for some Crib Sheet:

Crib Sheet: College Football Prime Time

Finally the wait is over.   Tomorrow night we kick off another great year of college football!  It’s been what seems likes ages since the end of last season and now we have another year of the most pristine competition we’ll ever see on the field.  Sure the offseason provided plenty of drama, with coaching changes and conference expansion, but we’re done with the talking and we’re ready to strap it on.  The helmet that is.  So here’s the last Crib Sheet before the new season:

Big 12 , er 11, er 10 Predictions for 2010

Man what a crazy roller coaster of an offseason for the Big 12. Who would’ve thought a year ago that the Big 12 would be rocked to its very knees and survive probably one of most weirdest advances in college football history.  It was like a whacked out game of Axis & Allies.  Welp Germany didn’t win and neither did the Big 10.  So here we are going into what is the last season we will ever see for this 12 conference league.  Who will come out on top?  Roll dice to find out (er read below).

Continue reading Big 12 , er 11, er 10 Predictions for 2010

Crib Sheet: Nobody Saw This Coming

Okay this close to the season and we still have major, er mid-major, moves regarding conference expansion.  So BYU started to teeter and now the WAC blew up.  Further out west there are questions of Pac 10 allegiance.  Please, will the powers that be put all of this on lockdown so we can focus on actually playing football instead of this crap.  The season is about 2 weeks away!  We’re not sure they’re listening so in the meantime, everyone else clue them into this week’s Crib Sheet:

Crib Sheet: Media Blitz

We’ve been sacked from the Big 12 Media Days on this week’s Crib Sheet.  We’ll go over the last media day next, as we have a major pile of news dump on you.  Here we go:

Crib Sheet: Conference Mushroom Power Up

The big talk the last week or so has been conference expansion.  Well, never fear, because here at the KCCGD headquarters, we are perfectly happy with out size.  Now there have been some talks of expanding out to St. Louis or up into Omaha, but does KC St. Louis Omaha College GameDay sound great?  We say no.  Granted, the barspots might be a little more glorious if we end up at an Old Chicago in St. Louis, but for now we are perfectly satisfied with what KC has to offer in bars and feel no pressure to hitch up and roll out every week.  That said, here’s this week’s Crib Sheet:

  • What is the deal with other conferences wanting to poach schools from the Big 12?  First it was the Big 10 and Missouri and now it’s the Pac 10 and Colorado.  Yes it makes sense for both side to get the television markets.  What this will signal is some massive changes (and payouts) to all the schools in the Big 12.  Do you honestly believe Nebraska will go to the Big 10?
  • So we know about Missouri, but the Big 10 talking with Texas?  Huh?  Okay, no we’re thinking other conferences want to consolidate into just one big conference with all of the television markets.  That’s the only way that makes sense.  Texas won’t have an easier challenge up there.  Just strange.
  • Goodbye Tim Griffin.  We used his quick news on the goings on for news here at the KCCGD headquarters and we’re sorry to see him go.  We wish him the best and we hope to see him or hear from him real soon.
  • The NCAA rolled out a rule severely limiting recruiting by coaches who are deemed as the successor in the head coach line at colleges.  Naturally, Texas is not happy with this.  What are they worried about?  They are Texas.  They get the best kids in Texas.  Recruits do not need to promise of some other coordinator to tip scales for them.
  • JoePa will get lasers shot into his eyes.  Yup, no longer will we see the iconic, thick-framed, bespectacled Joe Paterno, but now we will see the I big nosed, mega old dude on the sidelines.  Hey, it just goes to show that you’re never too old to get procedures done to your body.  Let’s hope he doesn’t get pectoral implants next.
  • The NCAA wants to take away touchdowns for taunting.  Okay, we get it.  Sportsmanship is truly a noble attribute.   But doesn’t it say something about society as a whole when we have to legislate it?  Why take a away a touchdown?  A penalty assessed on the kickoff or extra point should be enough.  Those are kids out there and they have a hard time controlling their emotions.  The NCAA needs to focus on making the kids safer first.
  • Bo Pelini got yet another raise.  He goes up to $2.1 million per year through 2015.  Congrats to everyone’s favorite gum chewing Cornhusker.  That’s gonna buy him a load of Bubble Yum.
  • Here’s this week’s police blotter:  Frosh Mizzou quarterback Tyler Gabbert got the Owen Wilson treatment and broke his nose in a fight inside a Gumby’s Pizza.  The ladies still find Owen hot, somehow, so he should be good.  Meanwhile, LaMichael James, the Frosh offensive player of the year for the Pac 10, is in jail for strangulation, assault, and menacing.  Welp, we might have a LeGarrate Blount situation here.  Only difference was one was on a field against a dude and the other was off the field against lady.  Oregon should kick this guy off the team.
