soulIIsould

I don’t know how I managed to get that song stuck in my head, but gol durnit it had to have been something to do with the past weekend’s action of college football.  Watch him and hum my way through topics like TCU, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas Tech, West Virginia, Iowa State, Baylor, BIg 12, SEC, ACC, Florida State, Clemson, Associated Press Top 25, Missouri, Florida, Georgia, Vanderbildt, Tennessee, South Carolina, LSU, Ole Miss, Auburn, Texas A&M, and the BCS Standings.

Yup, Kansas State is not playing so I will be in and out for the day.  Never fear, however, as I’ll probably watch some tasty ACC matchups tonight with Florida State heading to Clemson.  Chances are I’ll be flipping to USC and Notre Dame too.  The Big 12 and yes, Missouri, are already going so I’ll be throwing my two cents in when I can.  Well, I’ll be throwing in my double doubles when I can that is.

Pick It And Stick It: Pouncing On Picks Like A Tiger

CBB_John_McCririck

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.  Peering at the schedule it looks like it’s a great non committal weekend for me.  Some tasty top 25 match ups and enough Big 12 action to fill up the whole day Saturday. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: Pouncing On Picks Like A Tiger

Pick It and Stick It: Austin City Pick Its

picking-nose-2

Yup, I’ll be at weekend two for this year’s Austin City Limits so I will miss out on watching some games.  It does not, however, stop me from picking and sticking it.  And my what a lovely set of picks this week.  We have some meaty Top 25 match ups as well as some good ole rivalry action right here in the Big 12.  Will I somehow recover from my awful pics so far?  More importantly, will I recover from this weekend? Continue reading Pick It and Stick It: Austin City Pick Its

Purple Yeti Roar 82: Running Scared

runningscared

Two weeks to go and there’s one last trickle of non football stuff to talk about before the start of the college football season.  Yup, it seems the NCAA and its member schools are running scared from this autograph thing.  I’ll talk about that, Tulsa, EA Sports, SEC, Big 10, Big 12, Missouri, James Franklin, and Gary Pinkel. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 82: Running Scared

Purple Yeti Roar 38: Kansas State Dominance

I’m talking about how Kansas State continuously takes care of business against the in state brother for Kansas.  Tune in and watch me talk about the Big 12 games from the weekend and the Big 12 games coming up.  Oh yeah, I’ll talk some Top 25 match ups and some overrated SEC stuff.  Let the dominance continue. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 38: Kansas State Dominance

Purple Yeti Roar 34: Week 02 Recap is Jamacain Spice VooDoo

I come to you a little late and recovering from the spicy voodoo that was week 2 in college football.  My Kansas State Wildcats surprised everyone, including me, by blowing out the Miami Hurricanes.  The rest of the Big 12 was ho hum and I even got to see the SEC look a little silly.  All that and some tasty buffalo wing reactions coming up.  Quick apology for the quiet audio as well. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 34: Week 02 Recap is Jamacain Spice VooDoo

Pick It and Stick It: We’ve Gone To Preview Mode

Why preview mode?  Because I’m tired of doing the ole cut and paste from the Yahoo Fantasy College Football Pick’Em, that’s why.  But I certainly don’t want to leave a gap in the ole coverage of this weekend’s game.  Yeah, I missed last weekend, but it was Labor Day so I didn’t really work.  I’m ready to stick it this week, so let’s find out what I think about this weekend’s games.  Follow along on the the ESPN Schedule.

Dart Board Predictions 2012: Just Make Sure You Don’t Touch Anybody

Yup it’s time I wing them again.  I don’t like making things ultra official and professional (note the website) and I will follow that same lack of format for another Pick It and Stick It Special.  It’s Dart Board Predictions time!  I don’t keep track so if you want to hit me up on the Twitterz (twitter.com/kccgd) or email ([email protected]) and let me know just how smart or dumb I am.  So with that out of the way, let’s sharpen up the darts and start tossing.  Get out of the way.

  • I for some reason kept picking Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden to kick the bucket on the field.  I was wrong on both shots (but there’s a chance with Bobby still).  This year I will predict that NO ONE will die on the field.  Practice field doesn’t count.  I know about the sickle cell.
  • After capping off the offseason with a newly announced college football playoffs, college presidents will realize the folly of their way and go back the BCS system.  The robots will be replaced by committee members.
  • Brent Musburger starts to fade as he delves into dementia not unlike Keith Jackson 10 years ago.  The only difference, he will still shill and sound super excited.
  • Hey I picked a Big 12 Champion, so who will that champion play?  Pretty easy, it’s BCS bowl bound for Oklahoma against Virginia Tech because Frank Beamer.
  • So that means that the Hokies will win the ACC again and I’m not sure anyone will really care.
  • With the WAC shutting down, you’ll see other lower tier conferences going away.  I’m looking at you Sun Belt.
  • Charlie Weiss will get so frustrated at Kansas, that his front butt will lash out and strike a player.  Unlike his almost twin in old head coach Mark Mangino, no one will seem to care about it.  Poor blowhard Weiss.
  • The Big East will be renamed to The Big after they finish this year announcing new members Hawaii and Japan.
  • Texas A&M and Missouri do okay in the SEC this year.  After they get done cleaning up the table when the big boys are done.
  • Mike Leech trades his sword in for a bow and arrow and starts pegging apples at Washington State.  This somehow inspires Wazzu to double their wins to 2.
  • USC will walk into the Pac 12 as the favorite and will more than likely walk out the winner.  Oregon lost so much except those tasty uniforms.
  • But Matt Barkley will not win the Heisman Trophy.  The consolation?  The next contestant on The Bachelor.
  • Who will win the Heisman?  It’s a quarterback sport anymore so I think it will be someone from the that position.  I see Geno Smith nailing with Collin Klein coming in second.  Such a homer pick.
  • Speaking of Kansas State, Bill Snyder will live through the year and see a bowl win finally.  Maybe in the Beef O’Bradys Bowl.
  • Craig James will spew out some nonsense and get accepted to the Green Party’s ticket for president alongside Rosanne Barr.
  • I really do think this may be Michigan’s year for a Big 10 title. Unfortunately as soon as they step on that stage, they will instantly be overhyped and lose out in the Rose Bowl.
  • About 100 more players will be suspended due to mysterious ‘team rules’ epidemic going around.
  • I will not win Pick It and Stick It again this year.  I’m hedging my bet right now and will be saying ‘Called It!’ in December.
  • USC will face LSU and win in the BCS National Championship Game.  Only because USC did me so well in EA Sports NCAA College Football and LSU just doesn’t have it, much to the chagrin of everything SEC.
  • Finally, super predictor Phil Steele will rip off most of my predictions from this column and discredit everything else he did in 2012.

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

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 27: A Cold Wind A Blown’ From Up North

It’s getting chilly down here in Austin in the middle of July.  Wah, you say?  Yes, but not that kind of chill.  It’s the kind that’s blowing over college football and it’s coming from Happy Valley.  This week I try to stay warm and protected from the goings on at Penn State as well as talking about Joe Paterno, Jerry Sandusky, NCAA, Iowa, Big Ten, SEC, Big 12, Missouri, Gary Pinkel, Kansas State, and Collin Klein.

Purple Yeti Roar 24: Celebratin’ ‘Merica and Happy Things

I’m kicking of the festivities early this year and celebrating Independence Day a little early.  Why you ask?  Well, it could be that after all of the NCAA playoff announcements, Notre Dame will still be independent.  Or it could be Erin Andrews heading to Fox Sports to host a college football pregame show.  Or it could be that West Virginia and TCU are officially in the Big 12.  Nope.  It’s that Texas A&M and Missouri are gone from the Big 12.  Happy Days!  Time to celebrate with some Colorado Buffalo beer. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 24: Celebratin’ ‘Merica and Happy Things

Purple Yeti Roar 14: Welp Baseball Is Done So Watch More Football

The Royals tanked hard in Kansas City, so why not hang out with me as we get ready for some football?  Sure, it’s all talk and no play but better no play than terrible play.  This week I talk Arkansas, Kansas, Charlie Weiss, Notre Dame, Ireland, Navy, Jessica Dorrell, Bobby Petrino, USC, ESPN, Oregon, Tha tweed, Texas A&M, SEC, West Virginia, Gary Pinkel, and Missouri.
