It’s been awhile but I’m finally back again. College football saw it’s first playoff last year and, although the Big 12 wasn’t represented, we were entertained. That’s all we can ask. I hear virtually no one ask on the interwebs where I’ve been, so I’ll answer that shortly. But first, here’s my dart board predictions for 2015. Continue reading Dart Board Predictions For 2015: Scarcity Brings Quality Shots
I kinda feel like everything I did on this blog led up to the weekend I had last weekend. From grilling to barhopping to going to a game, last weekend had everything I wised for. Except a win. Yup, I was in Waco for the sorta Big 12 Championship when Kansas State played Baylor. Continue reading Stadiumspotting (And So Much More) At McLane Stadium In Waco
After a turkey induced coma, I’m back! It’s the last big week of the season. Yup, it’s championship weekend! Except for the Big 12. They have a kinda, sorta, championship weekend. I’ll be personally overseeing this as well to make sure it’s kinda, sorta, awesome. But until I make that trip to Waco, I’m going to run down how I think things will shake out. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: Championing The Pick
So it’s Thanksgiving weekend which makes it kinda funny that it’s also Hate Week. We give thanks to what we have in this world and what’s to come, but at the same time we also unleash the rivalry hatred that builds up within us the whole fall. It’s quite exhilarating. We have joy and, half the time, have some hate joy. I can’t explain it. I’m just enjoying the ride. And the turkey. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: Stuffed With Games
Welllllll, lookie here! It’s an actual Barspotting! I gave up the game many moons ago but luck feel into place this last week. Yup Kansas State played West Virginia on a Thursday and I was having other things going on. That meant some time out and some time to review a bar. Sad to say no Football Feedings this week but I think y’all will enjoy what I saw last Thursday. Continue reading Barspotting 2014 Week 13: Black Sheep Lodge
Ah yes, Kansas State once again has a Thursday night game, this time against West Virginia, so it’s time to roll back that schedule and get to prepping early. I’ll actually be going out so you may see a return Barspotting. Exciting, right? But you never know, I could do some feeding action this weekend too. I blame the early start, college football. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: Gettin’ Started Early This Week
This week of football was Kansas State-less so I decided to try some tasty giblets or another land. The results were not what I expected but the taste was beyond what I thought it would be. On the field, it was about as all over the place performance wise so it matched the madness that I created with grit cakes. Yes, I did a South dish in the Midwest. Continue reading Football Feedings 2014 Week 12: Gushy Grit Cakes
Kansas State is off this week getting ready for the big Thursday night match up against West Virginia, so I got a swath of college football to watch that doesn’t feature my favorite team. But there is a good handful of important games as well. The biggest of which being a game from the SEC. I’ll take it, but I’ll be doing it with a heavy cow bell heart. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: Clanga I Guess
Okay I can’t quote that exactly but I think you get the point. This week we go from the backswing of the season to the full on, follow through punch to knock ourselves into the College Football Playoff. Teams are teetering and are starting to fall (Ole Miss). This weekend others will fall as room for error is no more. We will find out who’s Rocky and who’s a tomata. Ding. Ding.
It’s become a tradition to bake at least on pizza every year on Football Feedings. Pizza is the ultimate canvas to plaster up some food art. This week is the week and we’ve got something special cooked up for ya this time. Kansas State is hosting Oklahoma State so we decided to do up a little thing called Cowboy Frontier Pizza. There’s no campfire involved but there will be some nitrates, that’s for sure. Continue reading Football Feedings 2014 Week 10: Cowboy Frontier Pizza
Now it’s time for full football mode. I was distracted by the Kansas City Royals doing the unthinkable, only to lose on the last out of the last game, but I’m back and ready to put my full focus on college football. The timing merges gracifully with the timing of the College Football Playoff coming out with their Top 25 rankings. Do I have issues with that? Will Kansas State roll this weekend? How about any upsets? Let’s find out. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: I Need A Barf Bag
Back into the stride this week and back for some awesome football. So this week, we wanted to commemorate the fact that Kansas State own Texas. No they really do. Look at your records. So to help punctuate it, we here at KCCGD decided to roast up a Texas Turkey. It’s a month early but it was easy pulling the trigger on this one.
Yeah it was a baseball reference, but hey, the Kansas City Royals are in the World Series. And Saturday may_may not_ be the last game they are in and I gotta take my props when it I can. So I will most definitely be watching the World Series Saturday night. I will also be watching some college football, however. And what an interesting weekend it will be. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: The Boys Of October
After a slew of weekends at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, I’m happy to report I am back and I am ready to eat. While the music was fun, the Saturdays eating some tasty crazy concoction while watching college football were well missed. So what kind of delectable dish do I have in store? Some Hatch Bacon Popper and Ham Quiche! No, not two dishes, but one tasty dish! Let’s get started. Continue reading KCCGD Football Feedings 2014 Week 08: Hatch Bacon Popper and Ham Quiche
Yeah I’m a little late with this one, but I’ll blame ESPN College GameDay and ole Lee Corso for my tardiness. Hey, what can I say I really wanted to see which head he puts on his head. So it’s lightning quick pick it and stick time. The big one is the early one and there’s another to cap the night as well. Let’s put our pants on and fix our hair real quick and get to this.
