Pick It And Stick It: A November To Remember

November_To_Remember ecw logo

So it started out last week with Oregon tripping on their tails against Stanford.  It’s that time of year again where we’ll start seeing others fall to the wayside.  Heck, even smaller teams have felt the brunt of November.   Just ask Texas Tech.  Who will it be this week?  Baylor? Florida State?  Alabama?  I guess we’ll find out Saturday who will be next. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: A November To Remember

Pick It And Stick It: The Unofficial Start Of The Weekend

thursdaynightlights

I can’t ever remember having this many contests going on for a Thursday night like this that meant so much.  So now we have it.  We get Baylor taking on Oklahoma and then Oregon taking on Stanford.  What a meaty plate.  It’s good thing we’re getting a day’s rest on Friday before another serving Saturday.  That plate won’t be light either, with Kansas State cow cooking and some SEC sausage to gnaw.  Why am I so hungy?  I should be out on the unofficial start of the college football weekend.

farmageddon2009

It’s the most holy of holy rivalries for any kind of farm bearing football fan.  Yes, Kansas State takes on Iowa State this weekend and I’ll be live-blogging all of the destruction.  It’s a Big 12 afternoon as well as we’ll see two more mediocre match ups before Oklahoma State takes on Texas Tech.  Plus we got Miami taking on Florida State in a very relevant rivalry game.  There will be blood left of the field after this day and I’ll be here documenting it all Ken Burns style.  Except using corny music.

Pick It And Stick It: Stick-to-itiveness

Last week Kansas State bounced back, as I correctly predicted, and now it’s time for them to keep sawing that wood.  There’s plenty of other teams out there with saws that have plenty of 2×4’s to tackle.  We’ll tackle what I think they will do this weekend rightcheer.  You know, I have a saw myself for the picks.  It’s time I get back on the track.  Now where’s that wood.

Yes it’s that time of year when the leaves start to turn and when, in Austin, the temperature actually falls below 50 degrees at night.  Yup, time to round up the slippers, warm up the pumpkin spice whatever, pop on your favorite pullover, and watch some college football all crispy and fresh air like.  And my, what a week to watch, too.  Kansas State is back, we’ve got some proving grounds to cover for Texas Tech, and a whole bevy of top 25 match ups.

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.
