Thanks Again Pac-10

December 31, 2009
By K. Becks

Well, yesterday I was humbled. Bowling Green and Idaho put on an offensive show as I predicted, and it turned out to be the best finish in a bowl game this year. With that being said, I wasn’t too upset that Idaho won and cost me 18 points in the College Bowl Mania game....

Big News; Good Day

December 30, 2009
By K. Becks

It’s official; Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach has been fired. If you haven’t heard the story about Leach, you are probably living under a rock. This story has totally shifted the focus from Urban Meyer to Leach and the Texas Tech football program, and for the next few days the media will continue...

Climbing The Ranks

December 29, 2009
By K. Becks

I’ve managed to put together a considerable winning streak, with a 4-0 record picking the last four bowl games. The only problem is, almost everyone else playing the College Bowl Mania game had the exact same picks, so I’m slowly rising in the overall rankings. Today could be the day that I finally make...

I’m Tired Of Hearing About Urban Meyer

December 28, 2009
By K. Becks

I know that I said shoot me an e-mail if you wanted to hear my opinion about the Urban Meyer situation, but now I’m starting to get sick of it. The fact is, the guy will be back in 2011, if not next year. It’s not that big of a deal. Even if he...

I Did This So My Title Wouldn’t Contain The Word "Finally"….That Doesn’t Count

December 27, 2009
By K. Becks

If you don’t get the joke, just take a look at the titles of some of my previous entries. Repetition is a terrible thing in the journalistic world. Yesterday was the first day that I actually had a winning record picking the bowl games. Unfortunately, on this blog I was 1-2, because I decided...

Will We Finally Get Some Close Games?

December 26, 2009
By K. Becks

Let’s just say that I didn’t get any early Christmas gifts. After SMU’s drubbing of Nevada in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve, I was left at 2-4 in the College Bowl Mania game and had just lost 34 points on my most sure bet for a win. Today, all I’m asking for is...

Finally…

December 24, 2009
By K. Becks

As I said yesterday, last night’s game was the first time in this bowl season that I felt confident with my pick. Once again, the Pac-10 did not impress me, and Cal bolstered my argument that the Pac-10 is full of hapless defenses that make their offenses look dominating. I was very satisfied with...

I’m Back….I Think

December 23, 2009
By K. Becks

Well, let me start by saying I didn’t think that this would be only my second blog ever. Like I said in my last blog, I had hoped to post at least once every few days starting back around the 4th of July. However, things got busy, I had to start training for cross...
