A Little Break From The Usual

January 30, 2010
By K. Becks

I think this is the first weekend where I will not be making any predictions for football games. That is okay with me, because I didn’t create this blog with the intent of just posting my predictions. Also, since I don’t have any games to cover, I don’t have a set deadline for when...

It’s Been A While

January 23, 2010
By K. Becks

Lots of big stories in sports this week. Texas basketball loses twice. Carlton Fisk slams Mark McGwire. NASCAR decides to relax their rules. Australian Open. Some of them I’ll get to writing about later on in the upcoming week, but unfortunately I was unable to get to them when they were hot topics. For...

Back In My Day…

January 16, 2010
By K. Becks

Well, I was going to write about Ohio State upsetting Purdue on Tuesday night, but I think that the game did the talking for itself. Bottom line: when Evan Turner is healthy, he is the best player in the Big 10. Robbie Hummel also deserves a lot of credit for his outstanding first half...

Is That Really The Question?

January 11, 2010
By K. Becks

If I was told that only one of my four picks for the Wildcard Weekend was going to be correct, I wouldn’t have guessed that my Baltimore over New England pick would be it. All in all, the games this weekend were pretty boring unless you’re a diehard fan of one of the teams...

Wild Card Weekend

January 9, 2010
By K. Becks

I had meant to post an entry yesterday to review the National Championship game and give a look back at some of my favorite games of the bowl season. However, due to the fact that the NFL Wildcard games start today, I’m going to have to put that on hold. As for the National...

The Big One

January 7, 2010
By K. Becks

After two and a half weeks of bowl games, we have finally come down to the season finale. It’s a bittersweet day for me; I love the college bowl season, and seeing it come to an end is always a little depressing. I won’t forget to mention last night’s game. It ended up being...

The Straggler

January 6, 2010
By K. Becks

Tonight’s bowl game is like the fat kid who’s at the back of the pack when the class is running the mile in PE. The last non-BCS game was four days ago; why this bowl (which is being sponsored by GMAC- good move sponsoring this bowl, guys) is being played so late, I do...

What A Game!

January 5, 2010
By K. Becks

I’ve read some articles that suggest that last night’s Fiesta Bowl was a boring game, in which neither team really played that well. Well, I’m sorry that a 17-10 game that came down to TCU’s final possession wasn’t good enough for those writers. I still think that people will look back on this game...

The Separate But Equal Bowl

January 4, 2010
By K. Becks

Yep. That’s right. That’s exactly what this game is. Look at the records: 13-0 vs. 12-0. Bitterness aside, a great game in tonight’s Fiesta Bowl is just what playoff protesters want. If the only game featuring two “mid-major” football programs turns out being the best BCS game this year, then the questions about fairness...

What’s The Logic In This?

January 2, 2010
By K. Becks

Today, we have five bowl games, none of which are BCS games. What exactly were the bowl executives thinking when the scheduled the Papajohns.com bowl the day after New Years? Here’s a rule of thumb; if you’re playing your bowl game after January 1st and it isn’t being played somewhere in Florida, then you’re...
