Who’s That?

by A.J. Coltrane

Breakfast on Saturday was at the Elliot Bay Brewery on Lake City. The Mississippi State/Texas A&M game was on the TV.

The MSU quarterback made a pretty throw on the move….

Me: “Who’s that?”

My Dining Companion: “Oh no.”

….

See, everytime I say that phrase it indicates in a new Man Crush. […]

When Real Life Imitates a Video Game

By Blaidd Drwg

Back in late November, Fresno State was on a roll – they were undefeated and there was talk of a BCS birth. They had just 2 games left, against the then 5-6 San Jose State Spartans, and then the Mountain West Championship game. In case you are not familiar with Fresno State, […]

What’s in a Name?

By Blaidd Drwg

As if one Wonderful Monds wasn’t enough (love the afro)

There were actually 2 of them.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.I think this gets my vote for the worst name in sports. His actual first name is Ha’Sean, according to Wikipedia, which is bad enough, but why the hell would you go […]

Observations on the New Mexico Bowl

By Blaidd Drwg

I love college bowl season – you can get some interesting matchups, especially when you involve some of the mid-major teams in the early bowls. Case in point is the New Mexico Bowl played on December 15th. It involved a 7-5 Nevada team vs. an 8-4 Arizona team. So what, you might […]

Don’t Call It a Renovation

By Blaidd Drwg

The local papers keep calling it a renovation. A renovation is when you take an existing structure and spruce it up. Unless I am mistaken, Husky Stadium was never a big dirt oval. Looks more like they are building a new stadium to me.

What's left of Husky Stadium? Not much. […]

Football this Holiday Season

By Blaidd Drwg

I have already expressed my righteous indignation over the entire BCS system here, and I read something recently in the Seattle Weekly about the entire bowl system that leads me to believe that it makes money for the people running the bowl and screws the schools over.

To make matters worse, this […]

Assorted Sports Thoughts

by A.J. Coltrane

Mike Leach to the Cougars: 

To quote Leach – “You can win here and win big, I believe.”

Washington State football just got a lot more entertaining — I may actually make a point to watch a game or two next year. WSU will throw the ball all over the place, […]

The BCS Needs To Go

By Blaidd Drwg

The process is entirely to skewed to hand out bids to the “power” conferences and really goes out of its way to prevent deserving teams from getting into the big bowls in favor of lesser teams from the big conferences. There are 10 spots in BCS bowls – numbers 1 and 2 […]

Huskies and Being Ranked in the Top 25

By Blaidd Drwg

Hey, the Huskies are ranked! Good for them, but before you get excited and start booking you tickets for a BCS bowl, the Huskies are probably going to make their top 25 appearance a brief one. While 5-1 is a nice start of the season, they have really beaten no one of […]
