I come to you a little late and recovering from the spicy voodoo that was week 2 in college football. My Kansas State Wildcats surprised everyone, including me, by blowing out the Miami Hurricanes. The rest of the Big 12 was ho hum and I even got to see the SEC look a little silly. All that and some tasty buffalo wing reactions coming up. Quick apology for the quiet audio as well.

We are back again going out to the best of what Kansas City sports bars has to offer in terms of college football. Like the storied tradition of college football, we have a tradition of going back to the best bar of last year to start out this season for KC College Gameday. We had no way of knowing back at the beginning of last September that Johnny’s in the Power & Light would be the best but here we are planning the first Barspot of the year down there. With every television fit into every nook and cranny as well as the crazy touch table poker game, Johnny’s hit the spot on all things needed for a great sport viewing experience. So come back out with us Saturday as we head back out there to enjoy Johnny’s and scoff at that ridiculous KC College Live thingy going on in the outdoor area.

So the voters spoke and we’re feeling Irish this week at J. Murphy’s. It’s not March yet, but we have a feeling it’s going to end up like it by the time we get done here. So let’s run down the stats on the bar. Green decor. Check. Beer (with Guinness). Check. Irish Whiskey. Check. Corned Beef and Cabbage. Check. All football games. Check. Looks like they meet the requirements for an Irish sports bar. Come out with us Saturday to find out if the proof is in the Shepard’s Pie. Erin go bragh!

Notes: It’s a somewhat of a trap game for Missouri as they head to Nevada Friday night. Kansas hopefully will turn their punches toward Southern Miss and not the basketball team when they host the Golden Eagles. Virginia Tech plays another game of the week when they host newly resurgent Miami. The Illibuck Trophy is up for grabs as Illinois heads to Ohio State and hope for an upset like last time. Speaking of upsets, Iowa hopes to do the same thing this year to Penn State like they did last year and derail their national title hopes. The Shillelagh Trophy is up for grabs when the Fighting Irish take on the Purdue Boilermakers. Texas Tech takes a long road trip to Houston and look to duke it out against the newly christened cinderella Houston Cougars. Finally New Mexico and New Mexico State meet for the 100th time this weekend in the Battle of I-25 and the Maloof Trophy.
