Super Bowl: Final Thoughts

Football is over for the season and that’s just about as depressing as this day being Monday. The 32 teams came down to just two. Then one, the Green Bay Packers, were crowned Super Bowl Champions.

Maybe we’ll see more “Cheesehead Bras” being worn… great googly moogly!

In today’s column I break down all of Super Bowl Sunday from the pre-game shows to the commercials. Enjoy! Continue reading

Just Football…

There are lots of big games coming up this next weekend for your viewing pleasure and much to talk about from last weekend’s game.

College Football Playoffs

Yes, there are playoffs at every level of College Football except the major college level. It’s nice to see National Champions decided through a playoff system instead of on paper!

Eastern Washington:

Congrats to the Eastern Washington University (EWU) Eagles team! They beat North Dakota State University (NDSU) last Saturday to head to the semi-finals. NDSU had beaten the Montana State Bobcats in the playoffs. EWU will host Villanova on Friday night in a semifinal game. The game is scheduled to be broadcast on ESPN2 at 6:00 p.m. (Mountain Time).

The bad news is that EWU’s outstanding all America running back Taiwan Jones has a fractured foot and is not expected to play Friday night. Jones carried the ball 20 times for 230 yards against NDSU.

Carroll College:

Montana’s best college football team, the Carroll College Fighting Saints, are once again playing for the NAIA National Championship. They will play Saturday against Sioux Falls (SD) in Rome, Georgia. According to this article, the game starts at 2:30 p.m. (Mountain Time) and will be broadcast on CBS College Sports.

Hopefully the local CBS stations or some local station will broadcast it for all of Montana to see.

BOWL TIME! Continue reading

Whitlock!

I was saddened to read that my favorite sports columnist, Jason Whitlock, was leaving the Kansas City Star to pursue other interests.

It was a great 16 year run for Whitlock at the Star. You can now catch his columns on Fox Sports and he’s on Twitter.

Called a jerk by some and admired by others I found Whitlock to be a refreshing voice for the sports fans. For the KC Star, people read his columns and commented, and called him names – but they read his columns!  Living here in the wilds of Montana and being a Kansas City Chiefs and Big 12 fan, it was always worthwhile to get Whitlock’s take on what was happening with my favorite teams, not to mention his insight about everyone from the front office on down to the third-string quarterback.
