Alrighty it’s another week and I have a shocking revelation. You won’t believe your eyes when you find out. I also talk about some ESPN, Kansas State, Big 12, Notre Dame, and Conference USA. TMZ eat your heart out! Then dot dot dot about it. Continue reading Purple Yeti Roar 16: It’s Me, Really→
I buzzed by Cuatros last week while I was on the way to the Mellow Mushroom with my favorite lady. I almost missed it, but the 16 stacked television screens forming a massive screen jumped right out at me. I wanted to go north of downtown Austin and this place just makes the cut. It’s Red River Rivalry weekend so we’ll hope to get a spot there when we show up for the Kansas State game. There’s other games going on, though, so check out the spot and hopefully we’ll check you out there. Ole!
6:00 PM CT UNLV at Nevada Battle for Nevada and the Fremont Cannon
Notes: The Red River Rivalry is the biggest thing going on down here in this part of the country. I’m not so stoked for it. It’s a good thing that there’s nothing else going on first thing Saturday morning. It’s also good for me that the newly ranked Kansas State Wildcats follow that little ditty and host Missouri at 2:30. Florida vs LSU might eat up some television screens but I’m hoping to get the Wildcats on the big daddy. Later in the evening sees a couple of interesting bouts but I’ll be home by then and will only be able to get Ohio State and Nebraska. No thank you, I’ll probably be napping by then.
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:
Saturday was the big day. We’ve been to a couple of chain restaurants before but this one was different. This was Hooter’s. We knew everything they were pushing. The place started with girls first, then everything trickled down from their cleavage. Hooter’s believes it also makes a great spot for a place to watch the game. So last Saturday was the day to put it to to the test. The test subjects included some great rivalry match ups, including the Red River Rivalry. Let’s see what Hooter’s brought us.
Ridin’, ropin’, buckin’, bustin’, and pickn’! Get used to it folks. The closer and closer we get to the Red River Rivalry the more we don the chaps and start spittin’ some chaw. Soze what wez got here is one of the best rivalries in the land. It may not be number one with a bullet but it certainly will place at the state fair. And in this here game’s place, that would be the Texas State Fair. So hold on to yer hats, buckaroo, there’s gonna be a shoot out come high noon tomorrow!
Arlight, enough cowboy poetry. Let’s get to the plate of beans for the weekend. Usually the Red River Rivalry is a close one and the spread makers deems it so this year with a measly 3 points. The rest of the Big 12 action may be in the shadow but there’s still some potential barn burners. Take a looksie at Missouri and Oklahoma State. Or even Kansas and Colorado. But enough about that. The other big rivalry is USC and Notre Dame. This should put whoever wins back on the map to the BCS title. A map that’s currently shared by Virginia Tech. They will have a hard time holding onto it when they face Georgia Tech. Pick well, peeps, and enjoy the games!
It was bound to happen. It could only be so long before we found out way there. And so, thanks to your voting, we will be barspotting for KC College Gameday at Hooter’s. If you don’t know what it is, then you probably never will be there. Essentially it’s vehicle for putting women in tight clothes and making them overly friendly. Word around the street, though, is their wings and cheese fries are top notch. Being the guy magnet it makes no apologies to be, they also have sports packages available. So we’re gonna find out this week if Hooter’s is a great place to watch sports as well as the talent.
Okay it’s Crib Sheet time and we need to talk to all of the aspiring wide receivers out there. Do not talk to Deion Sanders. The image above presents only a shrivel of evidence to support our position. Yes, he’s flashy. Yes, he preaches. Yes, he looks good in a suit. But nothing really good comes from working with the guy. Just ask Michael Crabtree. So consider this a public service announcement and please avoid Deion Sanders. Here’s this week’s Crib Sheet:
Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw has been ordered to take an anger management course. This stems from a domestic fight with his girl friend some time ago. She has to take the course too. Will it affect his play on the field? Tune in to find out.
ESPN’s Tim Griffin writes that Texas is getting ready for the Red River Rivalry this weekend by listening to that god awful Boomer Sooner theme song over and over. That’s either going to help them tune it out or get them so angry and sick that they will take it out on Oklahoma this weekend. This could work wonders elsewhere. Possible water boarding replacement? We think so.
A walk on Southern Miss player Peter Wilkes committed suicide over the weekend. We send our condolences out to his family. Apparently his dad suffered a heart attack and died over the summer. Wilkes decided to continue school for his dad but apparently it was too much.
A female student was arrested during the Iowa and Arkansas State game for continuously yelling at player Adrian Clayborn. The student was warned multiple times and even given a restraining order. Stalking happens at both sides of the gender. Kinda funny that heckling could get somebody arrested, though.
Dan Hawkins finally benched his son, Cody. Or did he? This will be the downfall to Hawkins and will serve as a lesson to all coaches out there. Don’t let your family mix with your coaching. Bill Snyder 2.0 knew this and retired to spend time with his family. He’s back now and you don’t see any of his kids on the field, coaching or playing.
The Big 12 will play seven bowls games during the bowl season after this year. More importantly the toilet, er, Independence Bowl is off the docket. We also see the new New York City Bowl show up. Many a mediocre conference team fans rejoice in the pick of New York over Shreveport, Louisiana.
The weekend of football left us a little deflated. There was much hype going into the Florida vs LSU game but it ended up being pretty boring. The other games on the docket were pretty uneventful. It’s saying something when the most exciting game of the week came from the Big 10 of all places. The pick it standings this week reflect that. There were lots of easy calls and people missed most of the same picks. Ho hum. The next week should spice up at bit, especially with the Red River Rivalry coming our way.
You may notice the results are a little slim. Well we don’t include the picks where everyone else chose the same. So for instance, this week everyone picked Virginia Tech, Penn State, Oregon, Alabama, Miami, and BYU. They missed South Carolina, Oklahoma State, and TCU. With that out of the way we once again point out Krizzou being the lone rebel and going with Baylor against Oklahoma. Good call by Mangino is Fat!!! for picking Arkansas.
We’re almost at the middle of the season and the pack is starting to break away. Minus any major upsets, it looks as though it will be a three person race between KSU finally makes a bowl again, Katpak, and Mangino is FAT!!! There’s a battle brewing for the cellar, too, between the Purple Yeti and Daniel Thomas is the man! But there’s still plenty of season left over and now that many of the Top 25 teams won’t have that many weekends off, the points should bump up. Get ready, because the BCS standings are coming out next week.
