Purple Yeti Roar 19: Remembering On Memorial Day

I took some time out of my busy weekend remembering out troops and grilling out some hamburgers to pop on and tell ya what happened in the week that was college football.  Quick answer: not much.  But tune in and see about Clemson, Miami, ACC, Big 12, Florida State, Memorial Day, Craig James, SEC, Alabama, and Chuck Neinas.

I’m celebrating.  That’s right, my RPM Challenge is done and I’m taking a load off with you. This week I talk about the Combine, RG3, Dick Ebersol, the Big 12, Randy Edsell, and drink on camera.  Oh the fun!

Crib Sheet: The Chips Have Fallen Into the Bowls

The teams have been announced that cards played out on the table.  The big hand is lame this year but the side bets are sexier.  That’s right the regular season is over and now we are flipping over to bowl season.  There were some snubs as usual, but the Big 12 lineup of bowls still looks pretty strong.  The Cotton Bowl is right up there with the BCS bowls in terms of interesting match ups.  Kansas State vs Arkansas, or Big 12 vs SEC, like it should be.  Call your bets and flop on over to this week’s 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:

Crib Sheet: Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

So the deed is finally done.  Texas A&M and the SEC made it official.  Now last week, we found out that the Big 12 was staying together.  We also found out that Dan Beebe resigned, at the request of Oklahoma and some others.  Connected sports guy Chuck Neinas was setup as the interim Big 12 Commissioner.  What else?  The 1st and 2nd tier television rights are on the table.  That’s fine for Texas because the LHN is 3rd tier, noinch!  The athletic directors all met and were saying they are committed to keeping the Big 12 alive.  Although, it seems Missouri’s foot is still out of the door.  Worse yet, the reason Oklahoma wanted the Big 12 to stay alive was because they couldn’t swing a deal with the Pac 12.  So is it safe?  I guess it is for now.  I’ll be certain of it when somebody actually joins the conference instead of leaves it.  Until then, here’s another installment of the Crib Sheet: Continue reading Crib Sheet: Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself
