img_0644

It’s Farmageddon week and there’s no better way to kick off the second week of college football than with some early morning vittles.  So this week we went with some biscuits and sausage gravy, but with a twist.  We will make a meal and STUFF it in the biscuit before we cook it.  It’s the only real way celebrate Kansas State and Iowa State’s farm bred rivalry.  Let’s do this.

Big 12 Football Preview 2013: It’s That Wide Open

newbig12logo

Okay it’s time for another Big 12 preview this year.  So we are are one year in with the newly aligned Big 12 and the dust hasn’t settled yet.  Last year we had a newb contender and apparently with have another newb contender.  Of course, last year’s outcome saw the championship fall to the Big 8 original, Kansas State.  Will they end up repeating this year?  Does anybody else want to stand up and take it?  I kinda agree with everyone else saying it’s a wide open race.  Let’s find out what else I think.

Crib Sheet: Emptied Out The Bowls

I think I’m eating way more than I did when I was on vacation.  The holidays were tasty but between running around to visit people and sipping a couple of barley pops left me with little time to eat well.  Now that I am back, I find my fingers in the candy bowl that filled up from the stockings left before the trip.  Oh well, I guess.  Tis the season.  I know one thing, after the new year and the end of bowl season, it’s mega workout time.   One item that will mostly be fat throughout the year is the Crib Sheet.  So let’s get munching: Continue reading Crib Sheet: Emptied Out The Bowls

Bowl Pick It and Stick It 2011: 6 and 8 Split

Yes, it’s bowl season and I’ve got a hankering for one more Bowl Pick It and Stick It.  This time bowling is more exciting for me outside of the BCS Bowls.  Part of it is the fact that Kansas State got jipped out of an appearance at the Sugar Bowl, but the other part is that the line up BCS wise is just not interesting enough.  The Sugar and the Orange are lame.  The BCS National Championship Game is a rematch of boredom.  The Fiesta and Rose look good but the overall product leaves me underwhelmed.  That’s what I’m stoked for the Cotton Bowl.  It’s non BCS and has a top 10 BCS match up with Kansas State taking on Arkansas.  SEC vs Big 12.  Hell yeah.  Click on through for the Bowl Pick It and Stick It information.

Remember it’s a straight up pick but you can rank your confidence from 1 to 35.  What other bowls are interesting you ask?  Well, let’s start with the Big 12.  Baylor and Washington look good for the Alamo Bowl, thanks to Robert Griffin III’s Hesiman win.  Oklahoma playing Iowa for the first time in forever in the Insight Bowl sees Sooner head coach Bob Stoops head to his alma mater.  What other games look good?  How about the Outback Bowl with Georgia taking on Michigan State, another version of the BCS snub bowl.  That’s about it for me.  The others are decent but they just don’t jump out to me.  Come back every Monday from here on out, though and we’ll go over the picks.

PIck It and Stick It 2011 Week 14: The Final Flingdown

Yessir, it’s the last regular season week of college football!  We have tons of conference championships, but we also have a fairly stacked Big 12 schedule.  I’m sure that won’t happen as soon as they conference actually goes back to 12, but it’s nice to enjoy Farmageddon and Bedlam while the title games are going on.  Bedlam is bigger, though, and I’m pulling for a major breakthrough for Oklahoma State so they can go the BCS National Championship Game.  Much like I’m pulling for a miracle in the picks this week.  I’m not asking for much, just for third place.  So let’s find out what the picks are:

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:

Crib Sheet: Scandals that Rival the Offseason

Here I thought the two last offseasons were brutal for college football what with the realignment talk and sports agent nonsense, but boy was I wrong when the Jerry Sandusky scandal came out last week.  Last week former Penn State defensive coach Sandusky was charged with molesting boys and it all went down from there.  Some top officials resigned, the President was fired, and now winningest coach in Division I (FBS) Joe Paterno was fired.  JoPa apparently knew what Sandusky was doing and did the legal minimum requirement in reporting the situation.  Now, he let Sandusky stay around campus after the incident and more incidents happen.  I know, the higher ups are in charge, but everyone knows that Penn State = Joe Paterno.  Whether it was legal or not, public relation wise he should’ve done more.  Ick.  I’m done with that, on to the Crib Sheet:

Pick It Standings 2011 Week 09: Waking Up From The Candy Coma

Yesterday was rough for me.  I didn’t expect to go into work to load up on candy, but I’ll be damned if the nice people I work with had loads of candy for me to nom on.  I skipped lunch entirely all because of it.  Some solid food found its way in my belly later on in the night, but it was no use.  The sugar shock went to major crash and I’m just waking up from the coma.  What better time than now to go over the Pick It and Stick It Standings?  There’s nothing sweet in there that I know of.

PIck It and Stick It 2011 Week 09: This Is Giving Me Chills

It’s Halloween weekend (-ish, it’s on Monday) and the weather is finally starting to reflect that down here in Austin.  I have to get used to it being hot rolling into late October.  This weekend has a big ole cold front blowing through and I’m already feeling the chills.  That’s the sign on fall that I need and it fits right in the super creepy Halloween theme.  The action of the field and on the Pick It and Stick It is still smoking hot.  Keltron3000 is breaking away from the pack but others are hot on her heels.  Kansas State is up for the game of their lives, well more like the game of the year, as they host Oklahoma.  So grab some Candy Corn and let’s check out the picks: Continue reading PIck It and Stick It 2011 Week 09: This Is Giving Me Chills

Crib Sheet: Hello Goodbye

We may be seeing the search for Missouri end real quick.  We also may see the search for the Big 12 heat right up.  The Tigers are planning on leaving for the SEC and we may know about it here by tomorrow.  Alot of people, including myself, thought that they would wait unilt the end of the season to get the ball rolling but apparently they want to move fast.  So in the middle of the football season, we will see even more conference realignment.  I’m just going to avert my eyes from the pain and check out this week’s Crib Sheet:

Pick It and Stick It 2011 Week 07: Dripping Down the Middle

It’s the middle of the season and we are looking completely different from where we thought we were at.  That’s okay.  That’s how college football works.  The way things changed week to week is what makes it the best sport in my mind and hopefully yours.  So will the rest of the season prove even more unpredictable?  We’ve yet to see any real upsets yet and we’re knee-deep into conference play.  So chances are the 13 or so undefeated teams will start to dwindle down.  I know this will happen because sports writers are talking about the possibility of 4 undefeated teams at the end of the season.  Here’s this week’s pick set:

GameDay: Tweetle Dee Doo

In the past, I’ve talked about how awesome Twitter was.  It still is.  But in the last couple of weeks I’ve fallen victim to some of the darker sides of Twitter.  By the darker side I mean the amount of fluff and rumors that spill out constantly.  So all of you know about what has been happening again with the Big 12 and realignment.  Actual news happens earlier in the week but with Twitter it’s rumors left and right.  I’ve accidentally found myself locked into the Twitter timelines of Big 12 where, after reflection, the news puked up things that took place nowhere near to what actually happened.  That’s where the learning lesson came in.
