Pick It and Stick It 2011 Week 07: Dripping Down the Middle

It’s the middle of the season and we are looking completely different from where we thought we were at.  That’s okay.  That’s how college football works.  The way things changed week to week is what makes it the best sport in my mind and hopefully yours.  So will the rest of the season prove even more unpredictable?  We’ve yet to see any real upsets yet and we’re knee-deep into conference play.  So chances are the 13 or so undefeated teams will start to dwindle down.  I know this will happen because sports writers are talking about the possibility of 4 undefeated teams at the end of the season.  Here’s this week’s pick set:

Barspotting: Pluckers

We are halfway through the season and it is time to get all franchised up in here.  That’s right, for the mid-season barspot, we’ll be heading to one of the local franchise Pluckers Wing Bar.  Outside of the tasty appetizer I had at the Draft Pick, there has been no major wing place I’ve been to this year.  So, I’ll be trolling South Lamar looking for the hottest wings they can muster.  It’s the Southwest, they damn well better be way hotter than Buffalo Wild Wings’ tame excuse for nuclear hot wings.  Plus, there’s some games!  Join us!

Pick It and Stick It: The Mourning After

The big game last night didn’t end up so well for this Kansas State fan. Hey, that’s okay. We tooled to Aggiveille and hit up the Hibachi Hit, which later lead to the vaunted Hibachi Butt. Maybe it was the mixture of great cajun food and the Carbomb we had at O’Malley’s Alley. Who knows? But it was great to see the old stomping grounds, even though the Wildcats were run over by Taylor Martinez and the Nebraska Cornhuskers. More on that with Monday’s post. Until then, we have some picks for the weekend we need to go through. The healing process begins with pickens.

Stadiumspotting: Thursday Night Lights

This will be the first off day stadiumspotting for us and we’re super excited.  Kansas State hosts Nebraska for probably the last time ever and they are both undefeated.  The electricity will be huge in the Little Apple and we will be there to cover it.  Chances are we will make our way back to a bar Saturday but we’ll go ahead and tweet the location when we decided where.  Until then, it’s half day action at work then a split time of driving and football watching.  This Purple Yeti is more than pumped for the biggest game of the year for the Wildcats.

Scoreboards Sent Us Home Alive but Hurting

We did our best to avoid the blast impact of Farmegeddon 2009 and with your help we landed in the bunker that is Scoreboards Bar vs Grille. Scoreboards tucked us away very quietly while we watched the action exploding on the screens. In times of catastrophe, one can’t be concerned of amenities. They must be concerned for survival. Well, we survived Scoreboards. From patching together tvs, to working with outdated accommodations, we walked out of disaster with no scratches and sore backs. Hey at least the food exceeded our expectations of canned beans and cracker jacks.

Pick It and Stick It: It’s Getting Hard


Well hard and cold.  Hard because the teams are starting to even out and we are actually seeing tougher calls for the spread.  On top of that, the confidence points don’t work out too well anymore.  There won’t be hardly anymore Off bets to drop the big points on.  Cold because of the weather.  It’s getting nippy out folks.   Bundle up and bring the Irish coffee.

Okay so the only Off just happens to be Boise State.  The BCS Bronco Busting Broncos  are riding there way to a somewhat cake conference schedule.  Will they make it?  UC Davis will help.  Cincinnati is supposed to roll Miami of Ohio even though it’s a rivalry game.  The other Miami is hosting Landry Jones and Oklahoma.  Looks like the loss to Virginia Tech was enough to put the Sooners out ahead on the spread.  Georgia and LSU have the smallest spread because, well, it’s the SEC and it’s Defense.  Did you see LSU last week?  Yeah it will be close.  The other close game will be the Paul Bunyan Trophy contest that pits Michigan against Michigan State.  Last week’s gift for the Wolverines is why the are favored 3.  It’s 3 points from the referees and the Big 10.

Barspotting: Pointing to the Scoreboards


This week finds us in the middle of Johnson County and at a neat little place called Scoreboards.  We’ve been there before the blog started off and we’re pretty sure it’s a good time.  There used to be a Scoreboards in Manhattan but we don’t think it’s the same bar.  Sometimes sports bars survive on their own without a website, but we think these guys could use one.  It was super hard to find a pic or logo of the place.  Maybe we can open up a KCCGD hosted space for bars around the area.   Or post some ideas for Scoreboards below and we’ll talk to the manager Saturday.
