Purple Yeti Roar 72: Laid Back Summer Sunday

Laid+Back

I’m finally getting used to doing these Roars on Sunday.  In fact, it’s starting to get easy.  Laid back and easy.  So easy in fact, I breeze through topics like Kansas State, Big 12, Texas, Lousiana-Lafeyette, Umass, North Dakota State, Kansas, Hawaii, Wizard of Oz, SEC, Ole Miss, Longhorn Network, NCAA, Mark Emmertt, Ohio State, and Gordon Gee.

Purple Yeti Roar 71: Gordon Gee Willickers

gordon-gee

It’s a great week of college football and it somehow landed on the last week for May.  Yup, it helps when some num-nut from the Big 10 runs his mouth.  This time (again) it’s Gordon Gee, president of Ohio State, who comes in lips a blazin’.  I’ll talk about that as well as the Big 12, Texas, DeLoss Dodds, West Virginia, TCU, SEC, Notre Dame, Penn State, Paterno Family, and College Football Playoffs.

Pick It And Stick It: Finding Some Seeds

It’s Sunflower Showdown weekend! While it’s nice that Charlie Weiss is trying to get his Kansas kids up for the game and refocus rivalry juice toward Manhattan, Bill Snyder has been doing that exact thing for much of his tenure. But we can get into that later. There’s a wealth of great games this weekend both inside and outside the Big 12. We’ll know much more where teams will be seeded in the national championship race after this weekend. Time to Pick It and Stick It. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: Finding Some Seeds

Pick It and Stick It: Bye Bye Love

It’s a little late but why the hell not.  I’m going to dump out another Pick It and Stick It.  It’s a bye week for Kansas State and this week’s games are hardly that interesting.  But I poked and prodded around and found a couple of good reasons to flap my gums about the weekend’s games.   Much to no one’s surprise, the games I’m into this weekend are from the Big 12. Continue reading Pick It and Stick It: Bye Bye Love

Purple Yeti Roar 35: What A Weak Week 03

Yeah I missed about half the games but that’s alright.  My team won and a buncha others did so that’s all good.  Let’s recap the weekend and talk about Kansas State, North Texas, Oklahoma State, West Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, LSU, Ohio State, Michigan, BIg 10, SEC, TCU, Kansas, Dayne Crist, Brandon Carter, Arthur Brown, Notre Dame, Texas, David Ash, Big 12, and concerts!

Purple Yeti Roar 21: Back On Shore and Really Sore

Okay, I’m back from a great float trip in the Ozarks and I’m still wiped out.  This week we look at some of the college football crawfish that floated by the beachhead of news.  I netted some tasty nuggets of news including Bobby Bowden, Randy Shannon, Kansas, Kansas State, Charlie Weiss, John Currie, Phil Steele, Big East, TCU, Texas, EA Sports College Football 2013, Baylor, Ohio State, Michigan, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

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: Emptied Out The Bowls

I think I’m eating way more than I did when I was on vacation.  The holidays were tasty but between running around to visit people and sipping a couple of barley pops left me with little time to eat well.  Now that I am back, I find my fingers in the candy bowl that filled up from the stockings left before the trip.  Oh well, I guess.  Tis the season.  I know one thing, after the new year and the end of bowl season, it’s mega workout time.   One item that will mostly be fat throughout the year is the Crib Sheet.  So let’s get munching: Continue reading Crib Sheet: Emptied Out The Bowls

Crib Sheet: Christmas Balls Will Be Ringing

Yes! Christmas vacation starts today for me!  I remember back in the day how Christmas vacation lasted way longer than just a week, but I’ll take what I can get.  Back in the day I used only a couple of crib sheets and you’ll be seeing one today.  The news is not as light as I would like but I’m forging on.  Bowl season and the holiday season is upon us so it’s time to celebrate!  On with the crib sheet!

Bowl Pick It and Stick It 2011: 6 and 8 Split

Yes, it’s bowl season and I’ve got a hankering for one more Bowl Pick It and Stick It.  This time bowling is more exciting for me outside of the BCS Bowls.  Part of it is the fact that Kansas State got jipped out of an appearance at the Sugar Bowl, but the other part is that the line up BCS wise is just not interesting enough.  The Sugar and the Orange are lame.  The BCS National Championship Game is a rematch of boredom.  The Fiesta and Rose look good but the overall product leaves me underwhelmed.  That’s what I’m stoked for the Cotton Bowl.  It’s non BCS and has a top 10 BCS match up with Kansas State taking on Arkansas.  SEC vs Big 12.  Hell yeah.  Click on through for the Bowl Pick It and Stick It information.

Remember it’s a straight up pick but you can rank your confidence from 1 to 35.  What other bowls are interesting you ask?  Well, let’s start with the Big 12.  Baylor and Washington look good for the Alamo Bowl, thanks to Robert Griffin III’s Hesiman win.  Oklahoma playing Iowa for the first time in forever in the Insight Bowl sees Sooner head coach Bob Stoops head to his alma mater.  What other games look good?  How about the Outback Bowl with Georgia taking on Michigan State, another version of the BCS snub bowl.  That’s about it for me.  The others are decent but they just don’t jump out to me.  Come back every Monday from here on out, though and we’ll go over the picks.
