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
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.
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
Welp even though I missed last Saturday due to some sweet Austin City Limits Music Festival action, I was able to see some of the destruction. Man oh man, last week is what makes college football so special. Upsets a plenty. So college football needs some relief and we have it coming up this weekend. Yeah I’m a weekend two for ACL but I’ll be hoping to catch a bit of sweet football while it’s going on.
Oy Vey! This weekend of college football will be like buttah! And that’s enough Saturday Night Live reminiscing, because I’m just tired of that show anyway. We still have college football, but no football feedings again. I’ll be doing my darndest to watch but there may be gaps. Guptah!

Whew my picks last week stunk. It almost stuck as much as my pick for Kansas State over Texas. Yes, it was for the spread and yes, they didn’t make it. So how am I going to recover this week? Fortunately Kansas State is off so I don’t have to worry about them. There are some Top 25 matchups that could smooth the blow and get me back on the road to recovery. There’s also a nice little non conference matchup that will be exciting as well. Continue reading Pick It And Stick It: Getting Kinda Flakey Here

Last week was rough. For lots of reasons. Tailgating as hard as I did last weekend has left some lingering effects. There’s also a sprinkle of great games from Thursday through Saturday.

Hopefully I won’t miss Mom’s stuffing too much. Let’s check out the games.
