It’s Friday and it’s late. I successfully avoided Black Friday and took the brunt of Thanksgiving yesterday. I took a day off yesterday and am now finally recovered enough to spit out my finger pickin’s flakes of college football destiny. Thanksgiving was a day for family and this weekend it’s been a family of rivalries. Heck I’m watching the Civil War at the moment (that’s Oregon vs Oregon State). We get more rivalries tomorrow and it’s time to give thanks and give picks to see who comes out on top. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: It’s For The Birds

It took up until the last remaining weeks of the season but ESPN finally felt it worthy to grace their college football presence in Big 12 country. All it took was a still undefeated Baylor and a one loss Oklahoma State to do it. And boy that will be a shootout. Kapwing! We also have a couple of tasty Top 25 match ups and a HUGE game for Alabama as they take on Chattanooga. Let’s get the show started.

So it started out last week with Oregon tripping on their tails against Stanford. It’s that time of year again where we’ll start seeing others fall to the wayside. Heck, even smaller teams have felt the brunt of November. Just ask Texas Tech. Who will it be this week? Baylor? Florida State? Alabama? I guess we’ll find out Saturday who will be next. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: A November To Remember
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.

I can’t ever remember having this many contests going on for a Thursday night like this that meant so much. So now we have it. We get Baylor taking on Oklahoma and then Oregon taking on Stanford. What a meaty plate. It’s good thing we’re getting a day’s rest on Friday before another serving Saturday. That plate won’t be light either, with Kansas State cow cooking and some SEC sausage to gnaw. Why am I so hungy? I should be out on the unofficial start of the college football weekend. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: The Unofficial Start Of The Weekend
It didn’t take long to figure out what to have this week for Football Feedings. The Kansas State Wildcats were playing the Iowa State Cyclones in Farmageddon. So what better way to pay tribute than to cook up some cow and corn? That’s what I did. This week we have a good ole hearty meal consisting of ribeye steak, roasted corn cob, wheat rolls, and some smoked porter to wash it down with. Here’s the recipe I used for the bread and I’m rocking the Mesquite Smoked Porter from Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling Company. Let’s get cooking!

It’s the most holy of holy rivalries for any kind of farm bearing football fan. Yes, Kansas State takes on Iowa State this weekend and I’ll be live-blogging all of the destruction. It’s a Big 12 afternoon as well as we’ll see two more mediocre match ups before Oklahoma State takes on Texas Tech. Plus we got Miami taking on Florida State in a very relevant rivalry game. There will be blood left of the field after this day and I’ll be here documenting it all Ken Burns style. Except using corny music.
Yes, Kansas State won yesterday. They have to fight their way to a bowl game and the win over West Virginia helped. These rebels are coming on strong. Watch me talk about that and Oklahoma State, Iowa State, Farmageddon, Texas Tech, Kliff Kingsbury, Oklahoma, Baylor, Kansas, Big 12, Texas, TCU, South Carolina, Missouri, SEC East, Tremaine Thompson, and Tyeler Lockett.

Yes it’s that time of year when the leaves start to turn and when, in Austin, the temperature actually falls below 50 degrees at night. Yup, time to round up the slippers, warm up the pumpkin spice whatever, pop on your favorite pullover, and watch some college football all crispy and fresh air like. And my, what a week to watch, too. Kansas State is back, we’ve got some proving grounds to cover for Texas Tech, and a whole bevy of top 25 match ups.

Whoa man I am so glad Kansas State doesn’t play football this week. I’m recovering from Austin City Limits Music Festival last week and I’m just ready for some good football and nothing on the line for yours truly.
