Pick It Standings Week 5: College Football And Picks Crash of 2008

The turbulent economic turmoil faced in this great nation has finally trickled down to all that is near and dear to our hearts here at the KCCGD. Much like the market, many high stock football teams tumbled over the weekend and panic is pulsating through the minds of many a sports junkie. Looking at this week’s standings, we can see that Cabbottmtf is turning into the Warren Buffett of pick ’em with yet another consistent week while Krizzou makes up a step with some apparent wisdom from Alan Greenspan.  The Purple Yeti?  Well, it seems he was too busy checking out Sarah Palin’s ass.  Somebody bail him out STAT.

As for hot button topics from the weekend, we’re gonna roll through it O’Reilly/Colbert/Olberman style:

  • Gary Chandler from K-State was arrested Saturday for driving with a revoked license.  The former Big 12 defensive newcomer of the year, apparently lied to the cops and then came clean about his name in the process.  Now being an alum from the ‘ole KSU, all I can say is, “WALK!  Everything is about a 15 minute jaunt from each other! DUDE!” Ron Prince gave Gary his walking papers until his legal troubles are fixed and my guess is this incident will tacked on to Prince’s dossier.  The case for delivering Ron Prince’s walking papers at the end of the year is quickly stacking up.
  • The toast of college football this week is the BIG 12!  That’s right, 3 of the top 5 are Big 12 boys will Oklahoma, Missouri, and Texes rocking it respectively.  The Big 12 blogger Tim Griffin pointed out this morning on the ESPN College Football Insider Podcast that all of the ranked Big 12 teams (6) are facing the unranked teams to start out conference play.  Chances are we’ll get at least one or two upsets.
  • While the Yeti was busting a sweat tonight at the gym, a large barrel chested man sporting an Oklahoma football shirt was squeezing out a quick spin on the bike.  Yeah, so what?  Welp, the Yeti also follows pro football and he just had to see the start of Monday Night Football.  After popping on the game, Oklahoma decides to switch up and run the elliptical.  But instead of choosing the machine in front of the game, he squats right down on the one in front of Dancing With The Stars!  That alone tells me that the Sooners will have at least one loss and just may miss the Big 12 Championship game.
