Crib Sheet: Better Late Than Never


It seems recovery from the float trip took longer than expected.  Well, that and KCCGD headquarters purchased a new laptop that’s in the middle of indoctrination.  The radio shows are starting to talk more college ball and the preview magazines are popping up on the stands.  We have about a month and a half to go for the big show and the new laptop will help us in getting ready for the relaunch.   In the meantime, here’s this week’s belated Crib Sheet:

  • Looks like people are making bank from student athlete autographs on eBay.   The NCAA is trying to lock it down but we don’t see the issue.  They are already building a fortune off of these kids, why not let some other small entrepreneur make a couple of bucks from an autograph?
  • As expected, the cheap ticket deal for K-State and Bill Snyder’s return blew up all over.  John Currie commissioned more tickets and it looks like they were snatched up fast too.  I’ve been to games there and a $9 ticket versus a $50 tickets makes a world of difference.  Currie should really do more tickets because the game wouldn’t sell out otherwise.
  • Erin Andrews will now skirt the sidelines in video game form for EA’s NCAA College Football 2010.  Apparently she spend days recording insightful comments to be dropped during the game.  That’s great.  We wonder if they did her up a 3D modeling suit for better precision on microphone holding.  Oh to be that suit…….or in the hotel room.
  • Graham Harrell is heading to Canada.  After not getting a sniff from the NFL, he will be smelling the brisk Canadian air for the Saskatchewan Roughriders.  Many say he’s a product of the Texas Tech system but we’d like to think his career path is going down the same road that Warren Moon went.
  • Get your tickets fast, folks, Notre Dame will play Army at Yankee Stadium.  This has been rumored before and now they will play in 2010.  Around the Kansas City area, Arrowheads plays host to some college games as well as the Big 12 Championship every once in awhile.  Hopefully this will lead to more and more big time games being played in a large enough stadium.
  • University of South Florid kicker Maikon Bonani fell 35ft off a Busch Gardens ride.  An employee was injured too while holding on to the door that he thought was unlocked.  Apparently the ride took off and Bonani and the employee fell.  Yeah, the Purple Yeti will not go on roller coaster rides.
  • Ron Simmons, former WWE and WCW wrestler, is now in the college football hall of fame.  He used to play for Florida State and ended up being an All American.  We here at the KCCGD congratulate Ron and wish him a big ole DAMN.

Mascot Monday: Chief Osceola and Renegade


When coming up with this week’s mascot, we decided to go with a somewhat big time program.  How we settled on Florida State’s Chief Osceola and Renegade was much more of a journey.  Was it the recent news of sanctions the NCAA put on Florida State that would vacate some victories and take away from Bobby Bowden’s record?  Nope.  Was it former player and WWE wrestler Ron Simmons and news of his induction into college football hall of fame?  Nope.  Actually it was the pit stop we made on the way down to our annual float trip.  Yup.  Thank you Osceola Cheese for this week’s Mascot Monday.  DAMN!
