For The Love Of The Games

January 31, 2011
By K. Becks

While the NFL and NHL’s All-Star games were being played, the Celtics-Lakers rivalry was being renewed once again, and the Farmers Insurance Open was wrapping up, something else had the full attention of many young sports fans across the country. The X Games, make no doubt about it, are getting bigger each year. Granted,...

Led By Example

January 26, 2011
By K. Becks

Ohio State’s drubbing of 12th ranked Purdue last night is being used as validation that the Buckeyes are the best team in the nation. While I’m reluctant to say just yet that Ohio State is head and shoulders above the rest of the country, last night’s game should make the Buckeye faithful cautiously optimistic for...

NFL Playoffs: Conference Championships Picks

January 22, 2011
By K. Becks

Only four teams are left in the NFL playoffs, but each brings to the table it’s own unique story. We’ve got the team with a fan base that finally seems ready to shed their old identity and embrace their quarterback (Green Bay). We’ve got the “model franchise”, the one that would rather let other teams...

NFL Playoffs: Divisional Round Picks

January 15, 2011
By K. Becks

Get ready for some exciting games this weekend. The matchups should prove to be hard-hitting, tough football games, many of which may go down to the wire. Quite honestly though, I’m just glad that we won’t have to hear much more back-and-forth between the Jets and the Patriots. It’s was funny for awhile, but now it’s...

January 10, 2011
By K. Becks

This is it. For 35 days, Auburn, Oregon, and the rest of the nation have been waiting for this day to come. Now, after weeks of waiting, we are finally going to witness the showdown that has been analyzed, argued about, and had its outcome predicted numerous times. Call it whatever you like. The...

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Preview

January 8, 2011
By K. Becks

The last non-BCS bowl game should really have been played over a week ago, but nonetheless, we are finally down to the next-to-last bowl game of the season. I’m sure that neither Nevada nor Boston College wants to be known as “The National Championship’s Opening Act”, but since this game will probably end when it is already Monday morning...

NFL Playoffs: Wild Card Weekend Picks

January 8, 2011
By K. Becks

The NFL playoffs are finally here, which means that I’ll start to pay more attention to the pro game than I have during the regular season. Each week, I’ll make predictions on the games until we work our way down to Super Bowl weekend.  I am excited for the games to start this weekend, as...

BBVA Compass Bowl Preview

January 8, 2011
By K. Becks

Last night’s Cotton Bowl says more about the Big 12 conference as a whole than it does about the SEC. After LSU’s beatdown of Texas A&M in Dallas, the Big 12 sits at 3-5 in bowl games this season. What other conference sits at 3-5? The answer to that question would be the Big 10...

Cotton Bowl Preview

January 7, 2011
By K. Becks

I want to know who scheduled the Cotton Bowl for tonight. Seriously. This game is usually one of the premier games of the bowl season, but since it’s on a Friday night, only those with a college football obsession (K. Becks) or someone with nothing better to do on a Friday night (again, K....

GoDaddy.com Bowl Preview

January 6, 2011
By K. Becks

There is a fine line dividing the people who like the name of this new bowl game, and the people that think it is ridiculous. I fall into the latter category, as I’ve had GoDaddy commercials shoved down my throat for years as a NASCAR fan. One has to wonder why they didn’t schedule...
