Conference Title Week

Well here’s the rest of college football’s big games.  Quite a few out there will impact the national title picture, so let’s start with the MAC Championship tomorrow. MAC Championship (21) N Illinois (11-1, 8-0 MAC) (17) Kent St (11-1, 8-0 MAC) This one’s a pleasant surprise.  If either of these team’s finishes above the ...


Previewing Tonight’s Big Games

Some stuff has come up so I will preview only a few big games tonight.  Here they are! Rutgers versus Louisville Louisville (9-2, 4-2 Big East) Rutgers (9-2, 5-1 Big East) Both these teams look pretty evenly matched.  I’m going to have to go with the Cardinals on this one though, because they have an ...


The Pac-12 Power Rankings For Week Fourteen

Rivalry weekend did not disappoint this weekend in the Pac-12 as there were upsets and exciting games for all to see! Two underdogs in the Pac-12 also had a chance at heavily influencing the final BCS standings and both of those underdogs flopped. Have you guys noticed how I like using the word and when ...


Week 13: College Football Rivalry Week

There are a lot of big rivalries going on in college football tomorrow, and with the exception of Notre Dame/USC (Since Matt Barkley is out), they should all shape out to be pretty great games.  Now if only I wasn’t going shopping in Westlake.  Anyways, starting with “The Game”, here’s Week 13. #19 Michigan versus ...


Fat Guy Pick Leads To Fat Guy Game Winning Field Goal As Cougs Win 2012 Apple Cup

Okay so I honestly don’t know how to start; that game was pretty awesome and I am mostly glad I drove back for it. That game had pretty much anything you could ask for, from penalties to ridiculous turnovers and a near fat guy pick-6. Both teams tried to gift wrap this game to the ...


It’s That Time of Year Again; The Apple Cup

Tomorrow is the Apple Cup and it is once again all Cougar fans are left looking forward too when it comes to the current season. For the Cougs this season has been an unmitigated disaster; for the Huskies it has been a season of unimaginable lows (41-3 LSU) to unimaginable highs (knocking off two Top-ten ...

Here are my Picks for Week 12 of the NFL Season! Texans Over Lions Cowboys over Redskins Jets over Patriots Bears over Vikings Bengals Over Ravens Steelers Over Browns Colts over Bills Broncos over Chiefs Seahawks Over Dolphins Falcons over Buccaneers Titans over Jaguars Ravens over Chargers Niners over Saints Rams Over Cardinals Packers over ...


Taking A Look At The Opposition To the Seattle Arena

Our coverage of the Seattle Arena is probably one of the most consistently viewed topics on this blog (what that says about our coverage of college football and other sports is not worth thinking about). It is the best Arena deal you could ask for because it offers all sorts of public protection and it ...


The Pac-12 Power Rankings For Week Thirteen

Well…this weekend….It goes without saying this was a bad weekend in Pac-12 football but one hell of an entertaining weekend for the BCS. It also gives hope to an eighth straight National Title for the SECE and that is just a sad deal over all. So let us get on to the Power Rankings. Stanford: ...


Week 12 College Football and Week 13 NFL Picks!

It’s Thanksgiving Break, and I’m tired and honestly don’t feel like posting anything.  Here you go. College Football #18 USC over #17 UCLA #24 Oklahoma State over #23 Texas Tech #2 Oregon over #13 Stanford My Record:  28-18 NFL Football For the first game I chose the Dolphins over the Bills and I lost so ...


Taking A Look At The AL West’s Newest Member, The Houston Astros.

The Houston Astros were easily the worst team in baseball last season. Their 55-107 record is something to behold and I don’t mean that in a good way; after all how is it that a major league squad only manage to accumulate a +10 WAR with every single guy on its roster? For those of ...


Best Buy Classic Treats Lady Cougs Like Best Buy Treats Its Customers

The Cougs trip to Land of 1000 Lakes did not end well as they went 0-2. But before all six of my Lady Coug Update readers flip out you should realize that today’s victors, South Dakota State, are a NCAA tournament staple over the last decade and even rose as high as the teens in ...


Weekend Review

The beauty of boxing and sports in general is when the unexpected happens. Although a few predictable things occurred regarding last weekend’s bouts, a few delightful surprises surfaced. Starting at the heavyweight division, Wladimir Klitschko (59-3-1 51KO) defended his championship against fringe contender Mariusz Wach (27-1 15KO) by a unanimous decision. Klitschko was fighting without ...


The Pac-12 Power Rankings For Week Twelve

The Pac-12 season has been pretty awesome so far this season. There isn’t a whole lot of movement since week eleven and the top team in the conference pretty much solidified itself. In other words it was another SEC-esque (although the SEC had a very Pac-10-esque week) week for the conference that dominates the West ...


A Tribute to Carmen Basilio

The boxing world mourns the death of another icon of the sport in the form of former welterweight and middleweight champion of the world Carmen Basilio (56-16-7 27KO) on November 7th, in Rochester General Hospital. Basilio was one of those guys who proved that true hard work and determination can lead to extraordinary things.  Though ...


Examining Three Possible Free Agent Hitters For The Mariners

The Seattle Mariners are in the midst of a decade long playoff drought. This drought has driven fans away in droves as attendance has plummeted to its lowest levels since the early 1990s (when it looked like the club was moving to Tampa Bay). Those that are left watching the Mariners wonder why the squad ...


My NFL Midseason Report

Well the second half of the NFL season is officially underway with tonight’s Colts/Jaguars game.  Barring a miracle comeback by Jacksonville, Indianapolis will move on to 6-3 this season.  This is a time for me to evaluate my NFL picks at the start of the season, what went right/what went wrong, etc.  Anyways my picks ...


College Football, NFL Football, and an Apology….

Hello everyone.  Sorry I couldn’t post my college football picks last week.  My internet went out so I wasn’t able to make my picks and predictions.  Anyways as for pro football, once again the picks are pretty unanimous so I won’t go into too much detail there.  Once things calm down and the games actually ...


Lady Cougs Outscore Their Two Exhibition Opponents 160 to 82

This past week the Lady Cougar Basketball team kicked off its 2012-2013 Basketball Season by playing too exhibition games on Friel Court at Beasley Coliseum. These games were against two division two opponents and as a result a lot of the players got to see playing time in these two sparsely attended tune up games. ...


Meanwhile In Sacramento…

During tonight’s Warriors at Kings game in Sleep Train Arena three peices from the center hanging score board took a fell to the floor. And it provided perhaps one of the best chants regarding the future of the Kings EVAR!!!!… also this occurred before the game; The Maloofs look a little uncomfortable to be talking to the man ...
