It’s Our Turn Now Coug Fans

Dear fellow Cougs, Despite the 27-17 loss in the Apple Cup, the Washington State Cougars are still bowl eligible. This year’s squad earned its eligibility against the toughest Pac-12 in the last decade, and they did it without any final game drama. This was a team that many of us — in August — thought ...

Week 14 College Football Picks

Well unfortunately for me the Cougs did not win today, and to add insult to injury my fellow co-workers were making fun of Halliday’s struggles as he threw a game-ending interception to the Huskie defense.  In their defense though this is Huskie territory, but still… Anyways I’m just going to do a quick-fire of my college football ...

Fantasy Football Week 12

Allow this graphic to show how terrible my fantasy season is going I am 5-6, and I’m probably going to miss the playoffs! I’ve traded away Calvin Johnson, and my next game is going to be against the league champ who happens to be first in his division. This is not good! Time to hit ...

Sports with Neil From November 18th.

Sports with Neil had its second to last broadcast of 2013 — on KUGR.org — on Monday, Nov. 18th. It was  a pretty awesome show (despite the fact that Gibson and Victor forgot how mics work); it was even more awesome when you consider the fact that Voxpro allowed us to export the show! This ...

Oregon’s loss to Stanford in week 11 killed the Duck’s national title hopes — or at least made it so mass chaos has to happen for the Ducks to be back in the hunt — but the Pac-12 still had a really good shot at having two representatives in BCS Bowls. Had a good shot ...

Fantasy Football Week 11

Well I lost again to Blu this week, and it was all because of this guy. Gosh darn it, I’m getting so sick of Drew Brees.  Anyways I won’t have to use the Colts Defense again, considering how they gave me no help at all against the Rams, because the Patriots D/ST is returning from ...
