A Better Big 12 For 2012

Ah yeah, the Big 12 is back baby!  Oh well, it didn’t really go anywhere.  Compared to last year, this offseason was a walk in the park.  Why is that?  Well, we have some new faces in the mix and some old faces hit the road.  I think truly for the first time in the last 3 years, there is some stability here.  That makes me happy.  What makes me happier is the new season so let’s see how this conference shakes out.

Crib Sheet: The End Is Nigh

Yup, we have a handful of games to go for this bowl season.  It’s been a pretty great run so far.  The weekend saw some great finishes and exciting shootouts.  I’m going to miss college football much like everyone else out there after the last whistle blows.  Until that whistle tweets its last tweet, we got a few more Crib Sheets to pass around as well.  The news wasn’t too quiet as we get to see more coaching changes and draft declarations now.  So let’s get right down to it:

Crib Sheet: Prizes Inside!

It’s that time of year again.  The time to hand out awards for special play by special players.  The Big 12 awards popped out and there were a couple surprises.  The one that jumps out at me is the ‘All-purpose’ award for Kansas State’s Collin Klein.  Was that ever used before in the past?  It seems like they cooked it up just for Klein.  I mean, he’s no Heisman winner, but he was the most important person on the team for the Wildcats.  I guess as a Kansas State fan, I’ll take what I can get.  You have to take what you can get with this week’s Crib Sheet as well, so lets’ get doling:

Crib Sheet: Winter Break

This Purple Yeti is too busy chopping wood for the fire to bring you much for the rest of January.  Look for some new giblets starting February.  In the meantime, I have the Crib Sheet to you warm.  Check it out:

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: Going Bowlzerk

Another regular season over and another bowl season is set.  I like the matchups for the Big 12 this year.  Yes, no two teams are in BCS bowls but there is a chunky 8 teams going bowling.  I don’t want to hear the yipping from Missouri fans this year as their game against Iowa is way bigger than the game Nebraska has against Washington.  Kansas State’s in the first ever Pinstripe Bowl against Syracuse.  That should be a fun one too.  We have the Army vs Navy game and then the week after is all bowls.  Right now, it’s the Crib Sheet:

Lazy Saturday for Lew’s

Another actual barspot and I’m keeping up on the known favorites with Lew’s Grill and Bar.  I’ve been here a couple of times and have begun to become a regular here.  They’ve upgraded the televisions and also the food.  The day of football was long and fun, so I was glad I got the sweet spot for watching in the bar.  Regarding the action on field, we saw some tight games and some surprising blowouts.  It was a lazy day, but it sure was a weird one too.

Crib Sheet: McRib the Vote

In the wake of one of the most massive events in history ever yesterday, not the election but the reintroduction to the McRib, I have yielded time to this week’s Crib Sheet introduction.  Ronald McDonald Bless America:

Pick It and Stick It: It Hardens When It Gets Cold

Chilly times are ahead folks and its time to wrap yourself up into some nice and tasty picks.  This week sees some hot action on the cold, cold fields of Lincoln, Nebraska.  Will Missouri continue to roll or be tripped up by the scrappy Cornhuskers?  No matter, we’ll be staying warm the best way we know.  Hot chocolate helps.  So does coffee or fried mac n’ cheese wedges.  I’ll probably have all this Saturday.  Grab your favorite warm-upper and check out the picks for the week.  Remember, he colder and longer the season goes, the harder the picks get.
