Stadiumspotting Was Back At Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium

KCCGDSSDKR_02

Time to dust to cobwebs again.  This time, I was actually at a football stadium to watch live college football!  So I don’t travel as much anymore which means that it was again at Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium.  And yes, it was again Kansas State taking on the Texas Longhorns.  While the outcome was different, the tailgating was not and it still made for a fantastic experience. Continue reading Stadiumspotting Was Back At Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium

In a week where there were no real matchups to watch, I found myself off at Darrel K. Royal Memorial Stadium to watch my Kansas State Wildcats take on the Texas Longhorns.  It didn’t get exciting until the end but the whole stadium experience made up for it.

Pick It and Stick It: Coming Up Dry

indynosepcking

Last week wasn’t too hot for me but at least I had the Game of the Century of the Week called.  In fact, there were so many great games last week, I almost didn’t mind that I did pretty dang poorly in the picks.  Well, I hope this week I hit hard on my picks because the slate of games looks pretty dang dry.   Let’s see what we got.

Kansas State Football Preview 2012: Always The Underdog

Another year of Kansas State football is upon us and there’s some weird mixed feelings going on.   Maybe not in Manhattan, but certainly down here in Austin and in this Purple Yeti’s abode.  You see, part of me wants to believe that Kansas State will improve upon its amazing record from last year, but another wants to believe in the negative hype the so called sports media jams down my throat.  Is everyone writing off Kansas State too easily, or will reality hit hard for the little Wildcats from the Little Apple? Continue reading Kansas State Football Preview 2012: Always The Underdog

Jackson.  After that we got some previews to post still and some tasty predictions.  Look for it later this week. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 32: Kickoff Countdown Starts Now

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. Continue reading A Better Big 12 For 2012

Purple Yeti Roar 17: Getting Ready To Rain Down

Yes, this week I get a little wet, with emotion.  And by wet, I mean sweat.  Sweat for all of the realignment rumblings that involve the Big 12 and teams going _into_ the conference.  I’ll talk about some of the teams that fall in to that latter category as well as some Texas, South Carolina, Notre Dame, Bill Byrne, West Virginia, Aaron Green, and Dan Beebe.

Purple Yeti Roar 11: One Shining Moment

The basketball dealy is done and I’m ready to talk football.  This week it’s Kansas and Texas spring practice with a little bit of NCAA, Baylor, Ricky Williams, Iowa, and Kansas State.  One shining moment, it’s all on the line…… Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 11: One Shining Moment

Purple Yeti Roar 03: I Hardy Knew Ye

We are full swing into the offseason.  Signing day is coming up and that’s the only exciting thing going on in college football right now.  Granted, there was a Pro Bowl Sunday and we _do_ have the Super Bowl this weekend but that’s the NFL.  We are here for college football.  So, with that in mind, the latest Roar talks about bad rap videos, recruiting drama, and Ed Hardy douchery.  Yes, it is that slow.  Here we go:
