The Week That Were: 9.13.14

The Week That Were: 09.21.13

Monday’s menagerie of thoughts and wonderings on Saturday’s shenanigans comes with music. It was an “ugly” weekend, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t make a silk purse out of it all. Before we dive into the scores, it’s important to remember how trivial college athletics is in the big picture of things. Unfortunately, this […]

Beat The Heat With Silver Bullet Points

Now that the rain has subsided, maybe the Buckeye State can enjoy the summer sunshine and higher temperatures… or as we call it in Los Angeles, “Wednesday”. Today’s soundtrack hearkens back to the halcyon days of the 80′s, before I had to actually pay for air conditioning. Back then, I thought that a Power Station […]

Top 25: The Week in Review & The Week Ahead

Even though the week featured many blowouts and easy wins, this week’s Top 25 has many changes to it from the previous week.

The Week That Were- 11.24.12

As you’re reading this, I’m somewhere above you making the phrase “flyover states” a reality, and heading back to the left coast. As such, this week’s review will be a bit shorter than previous ones, but know that I’ve only got one song on my mind as I write it And now, we know the […]

The Week That Were: 11.10.12

Oh, college football… How I love you!! Well, that happened. While a lot of people were saying that Alabama was ripe for a loss against a Texas A&M team that’s been playing really well over the past few weeks, most of this felt like lip service. You know, the kind of things that ESPN makes […]

The Week That Were: 10.27.12

In spite of the huge win in Happy Valley on Saturday, I’m feeling a bit of the blues are in order for this week’s recap. So, enjoy some Collins, Cray, and Copeland. It’d be easy to say that this week was “spook-tacular”, and “scary” for a lot of top teams, but that would be way […]

Ah, fall… the wind turns brisk and in Los Angeles the birds turn colors and fall from the trees (ht: David Letterman). We talked last week about “pumpkinitis” that’s sweeping the country… some people are taking it seriously. Instead of subjecting yourself to such a task, take time to kick back with some new tunes […]
