KSU at the 2012 Cotton Bowl. This is the pride of Wildcat land, the KSU Marching Band College football…luv it with me now Continue reading Jerry Bowling
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?
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).

The long awaited, highly anticipated, absurdly accurate Limeyfish.com 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?

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 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?).
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”
…why college football is better than the pro game. The pros wouldn’t bother with the effort nor would they get this excited. Continue reading Just another reason…
Since my manhood may have been in question for withholding my predictions (but surely not my football mind); since my game-by-game predictions of seasons past has become obvious they had more popularity than I thought; since I am the oft-disputed champ of football prognostications (I whup all comers), how does this grab everyone?
My 2010 Saturday Football predictions (and comments) for the Big 8-2+4:
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?
THE BIG 12 AS COUNTRIES
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.
