nukid

What side of the Spring Game type do you fall on?  Watch as I answer that question myself and perhaps answer just what the heck I mean by ‘sides’.  Yup, it’s another week of college football and well the most action we’ll see until maybe July.  Cherish it!  Also, cherish other news items from Kansas, Nick Sizemore, Iowa State, Jadeveon Clowney, North Carolina, Oregon State, Alabama, Auburn, Toomer’s Corner, California, Oklahoma, Bob Stoops, Disney, ESPN, Big 10, and the SEC.

Crib Sheet: Here We Go Again On Our Own, Maybe

Crib Sheet: Weeping Willows

We’ll get to the big story of the week in the Crib Sheet, but first I wanted to preface that by saying, ‘Huh?’  I can understand that tradition is the lifeline of college football.  I get that.  I’m just having a hard time imagining why there’s all of this hooplah surrounding the first news item.  I mean when I went to K-State, we used to toss spray painted chickens on the court before the Kansas again.  PETA was all up in arms and that was it.  It seems like everyone in the world is sad about this latest stunt.  Read on for the story:
