The Big 12-10=2+14 Conference

Did anyone else N-O-T watch the Texas Shorthorns, Texas A&M Maggies, Texas Tech-Western Auburn University Red Taiters, and the Oklahoma Spooners over the weekend? Oklahoma State is “sooner” to join that list (because whatever big brother OU says, they do)…. I have no intentions to watch them, even when they play my beloved Wildcats of K-State.

Ahhh the foul-smelling list that already includes Nebraska Cornsuckers and Colorado Duffalos just keeps growing.

Why should we watch disloyalty football?

Giving up on Saturday Football already?

No way! But with the current state of mess at the NCAA and with all this “superconference” talk thrown about like a poorly schemed screen play, I think my study, thought, and enjoyment goes to the FCS teams around the country. They seem content to play football instead of banker.

It started with a game back in January. You know, I did go to that game and thoroughly enjoy sitting with the EWU folks. It was the Eastern Washington-Delaware championship game last season played in Frisco. It was a good time and I was glad to see Delaware beaten (for reasons I won’t go into here…and now). If interested, check out that post: Crown Those Champions

Longhorn League Predunktion

The long awaited, highly anticipated, absurdly accurate prognostications for 2011 Big 12 Football…or perhaps more appropriately named: The Longhorn League, The Small 10, The Little 12, The Beebe Ball Busted Conference…I could go on you know…..

That giant sucking sound you hear the in the Big 12 this year…it’s coming from south of Waco…it’s those Shorthorns taking the life (and fun) out of college football…it’s the Maggies trying to sneak out of here with their tailbone pad tucked between their legs…it’s U of You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me H hoping they get into this new minor league of college football that is taking shape. Oh yeah, SMU is annoying everyone by tapping on shoulder pads wanting some kind of deathly attention – I guess that’s sucking too, huh?

We’ll have none of that from here on out…


The Fighting Sioux of the University of North Dakota!



There, I said it…three times.

I’ve also posted their logo. Oh Nooo!

The NCAA and Big Sky Conference will probably threaten to sanction me now. Ahhh, probably not…I said it before the August 15th imposed mascot-change deadline so I should be OK.

“I think he’s going to eat Gary”

I do love that M&M commercial….

I do not love the SI article, College Football and Crime, in that it whistles the top college football programs and flags the criminals they recruit and/or keep on the team…all for the sake of TV dollars and fleeting glory. As most of you know, I have repeatedly claimed I didn’t like or watch Pro Football because the college game was mostly guys playing for the love of the sport and in the spirit of campus camaraderie (that good ol’ college try, why don’t ya?).

Enthusiasm counts for something

On the UNT campus and directly across from the new football stadium under construction, I attended a Denton Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Luncheon today.  The featured speaker was Dan McCarney, the latest meanest greenest head coach for the University of North Texas. I wanted to speak with him afterwards, knowing most UNT football coaches in the past were always looking for someone to talk to after such an event, but the crowd surrounded the coach following the luncheon, apparently all wanting to literally rub elbows and become infected with his energy. So I went back to work on a beautiful, sunny, 79° Friday afternoon. Continue reading “Enthusiasm counts for something”

Where have all the basketballs gone?

Long time (not) passing…or assists…or scoring…or team play.

Please know, I show you this with an admittedly sour attitude (no kidding!) after watching a woefully played basketball game between my beloved (KSU) Wildcats and the Baylor Bears last night. It was a game where fouls were as abundant as turnovers and charging calls…What is it that seniors cannot figure out when to “Pull-en” up for the shot or “Pull-en” it out and set a play. Geezz! Continue reading “Where have all the basketballs gone?”

EHR: The Big 12 Republics

EHR (Email Humor Received) comes from OFB Tony, who got it from someone else. As per my lunch discussion with OFGaP JaiJai, I clarify the fact neither I nor OFB authored this – it, like all EHR, is merely passed on. But it is good and spot-on as well, don’t ya think?


Texas is like the USA – Wealthy, talented, and with seemingly endless resources. They have a big ego, but are deserving of it because they win at almost everything they do. Others often despise them out of jealousy. Their money and wealth make the world go round, and everyone wants a piece.

Texas A&M is like China – Big, powerful, and rival of Texas (USA). They live in a male dominated society, and thus their women are not allowed to be cheerleaders. Their money and power also make the world go round.

Oklahoma is like Mexico – Having no resources of their own, they have to invade the border of Texas (USA) in order to survive.

Little 10 alumni armor-chink

Former UT QB Chrissy Sims gets himself arrested for drugging and driving…with his 8-month pregnant wife. no less 

Former UT RB Cedric “Barkeep, I’ll have another” Benson gets himself arrested for a lights-out punch to the face of an employee at an Austin bar. So then he goes and hires Big Bad Ben’s (Rothlisberger) attorney to represent him…hmmmm.

Former UT QB Vince-able Young…no, wait, I better not get started here on him.

Schooled in CFB

December 6, 2009

So what if I missed the Big 12 Championship game last night, I was enjoying my company’s Christmas party and while there, too busy being confused with TV trivia being MC’d by our throwback 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s DJ (oh the agony of correctly stating the color of the Dukes of Hazard’s car when I was supposed to be guessing that of Starsky & Hutch’s – and loss of a randomly selected gift card on top of it!). But fear not my faithful (or one time) blog readers, I got caught up with the game’s outcome after reading all 4 pages of the Sunday Dallas Morning News. Continue reading “Schooled in CFB”

If the Westside Story is broadway, it’s ragtime in K-Who

Lew Perkins: “Embarrassed and very hurt”


This oh-so-sorrowful admission is “bull(spit)” that rivals some of the best NCAA insincerity ever mumbled by coaches in search of a conscience and the thug-athletes that might be aimlessly following him around. Perhaps I would have some sympathy for the Jaythugs, had it been a first-time incident. But last year, an athlete shot a Wal-Mart air rifle/plastic pellet/BB gun weapon at an innocent middle-aged woman (KU B-Baller Works on Shooting Skills – w/BB Gun)…out of his on-campus dormatory window. But that’s OK, right? He was disciplined for his indescretions…he got 20 hours community service…for shooting a human being, and still gets a free college education. I’m still trying to find a Lew quote on that incident.

A Westside Story

Holy Cow, just when I’m getting into my “love college football”/”hate pro football” stride, punk-athletes once again show off their true colors. Unfortunately, the colors of their schools are the one’s being tarnished. Damn how I so wanted to rag on Jerry Jones instead….

Do I need to go into the “scholarship = free college education” schpeal again? I think not. Just this: “Hey you punks, don’t blow your future by getting kicked out before you get a diploma that might support yourself and family in the future”. Idiots.
