PIck It Standings Week 08: Shake Rattle N Roll

Yes, we have not one, but two big upsets to deal with this week in Pick It and Stick It Standings.  Unfortunately, there’s not real upsets with the picks, but with Oklahoma and Wisconsin losing there is a major reorganization in the BCS Standings.  Things are starting to unravel quickly in the tightly wound Big 12 race now that Oklahoma lost.  Unfortunately for me, that means that ESPN College GameDay won’t be in Manhattan when the Sooners take on the undefeated Kansas State Wildcats.  That’s fine because I think they play better when they are under the radar.  Much like me and my status for Pick It and Stick It.  Let’s check out the standings.

Pick It Standings Week 12: All Turned Upside Down

You know, right when I called the division races for the Big 12, last week had to happen.  I called Oklahoma State in the South and Nebraska in the North.  Now, Oklahoma State needs to beat Oklahoam to win the South and Nebraska needs to win and not have Missouri win to get the North.  Okay, time for me to east some corw.  I can’ t be right all the time.  Fortunatley for the Pick It and Stick It, I’m right most of the time.  The only problem this week was everyone else was mostly right.  Oh well, here are the results.

Crib Sheet: I Feel A Draft in Here

Welcome to this week’s Crib Sheet where we give you wall to wall coverage of the NFL Draft!  Well, maybe not.  This post will be about as much as we will put into the pros and their cherry picking of primo college talent.  After this weekend, college football reloads and we are one more week closer to the start of the best sport ever.  No, not the National Football League, but college football!  So kick back, relax, and enjoy some Crib Sheet tastiness:

  • No more fun for you football players out there!  No more hidden shout outs on your black eye tap!  No more wedge blocks?  Okay, so the NCAA approved a couple of rules that tightens taunting on touchdown plays and removing points from the board, restricts players from putting messages on their black eye tape, and making the wedge block on kick offs illegal.  Um, where did all of the fun go?  If they were concerned about player safety or individuality like the pros, then they should pay them like a pro.
  • Chris Harper, the Oregon transfer, is pumped to switch to full time wide receiver for Kansas State.  Back at Oregon, he tried to fulfill his dream of being quarterback and played a dual threat role.  Ever since the Bill Snyder 2.0 coaches pulled him aside and said he could pull pro money if he went full time receiver, he’s been catching balls and being content.  All it takes is the potential of major cash to change some one’s mind.  America!
  • Welp, Mike Leach’s attorneys finally filed a lawsuit claiming his firing was all a big conspiracy.  This was pretty much expected, unlike his firing.  Isn’t he in Key West?  Is he really in a hurry to get back to coaching?  Maybe the pirate is trying to pilfer and plunder a couple of extra gold coins here.
  • Boise State will replace their beloved blue turf for ….. more blue turf!  The glare from the light reflecting from the turf bothered everyone in the stands.  The blue field itself still bothers us on the television.  What could’ve been an advantage over opposing teams may seem like dressing for their rumored top 3 debut in the BCS Standings later this year.
  • Former Kansas State quarterback Dylan Meier died in a hiking accident in Arkansas.  He was the quarterback from 2002-06.  Our condolences go out this his family and friends.
  • McFarlane Toys will be coming out with some college football themed action figures.   This is their second time around with this idea.  The idea is to take big NFL stars and showcase them in action from their college days.  So far there hasn’t been a Big 12 player immortalized in toy form yet, but we like the Drew Brees one alot.

BCS Goes Bowling, Finally!


We here at the KCCGD decided to split off the BCS Standings from the Pick It and Stick because of how important the BCS announcements were over the weekend.  We’ll go in depth into some of the games and the final standings.  Later on either this week or next, we’ll take a look at the bowls and maybe a specific Big 12 bowl post.  Right now, it’s BCS time.  As eveyone should know by now, the BCS Championhip game will be held in Pasadena, California at the Rose Bowl and it will be between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Texas Longhorns.  It’s not without controversy, however.  First, here are the final standings:

Pick It Standings Week 7: The BCS Baby is Born


Whoah nelly what a smelly game the Red River Rivalry was. The bigger upset for the Big 12 was Colorado over Kansas over the weekend. Either that or Kansas State’s 62 point thumping of Texas A&M. At any rate, guess what? Those Wildcats happen to be first in the Big 12 North. Coming into the beginning of the year, no one expected Kansas State to be in that position or Oklahoma to have 3 losses hung on them by this time. Just goes to show that in college football, anything can happen.  More importantly this week, we have an expected birth of the first BCS standings.  First, here’s the pick it standings:
