The Week That Were: 9.7.13

Given the rain delay in the BYU /UT game this week and the deluge of rushing that befell the Longhorns after kickoff, there’s only one option for this week’s soundtrack. See, this is why there should be no polls before the first weekend in October. Once again, we see a number of teams that got […]

The Week That Were: 8.31.13

For those unfamiliar with this feature, consider it your cheat sheet for the conversations around the grill on Labor Day. As always, these come with a melodic interlude to play gently in the background during your perusal… because you’re that important to me. It was the best of times, it was the… well… best of […]

The Day That Were- B1G Style

Slight variation in schedule… think of this as TWTW meets Wednesday’s regular SBP.  Here’s the tunes behind the guy behind the guy. 2013 started almost the same way that every other year has started since I can remember… with a slate of B1G Ten games, highlighting how many people who live in the midwest want […]

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 […]

The Week That Were: 10.20.12

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 […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 8

In the weak week that was I finished my best week ever at 5 and 1, no thanks to Wisconsin getting their act together on O against our upcoming opponent Purdue. I am now above .500 for the season at 20 and 19. Let’s take a look at the results! Iowa @ Sparty. Prediction: Iowa […]

The Week That Were: 10.13.12

Here we are, mid-October, when everything starts getting pumpkin flavored for better or worse.

Ah, Texas… where dreams go to die.  Three of the most interesting storylines this week came Deep In The […]

The Week That Were: 10.6.12

Hope you’re not too hungover from Homecoming… Not that there’d be anything wrong with that.  This weeks’ TWTW is being composed with this concert in the background- say goodbye to your Pandora station for the next hour and 45 minutes. This has been identified as the first “Shakedown Saturday” of the season, and we knew […]

Picks for the Weak – Week 6

I have decided to remove whether I got the score right or not and am going straight up with my picks. I will continue to include a guess of the score in most cases but it will just be a guide! The reason for this is the fact that I was an amazing five and […]

Compare and Contrast: South Carolina Update

It’s the sports dead season again and, as is rapidly becoming a tradition around these parts, we find ourselves updating the table of violations for a school on our Compare and Contrast board.  This edition’s winners are the South Carolina Gamecocks and the rather surprising conclusion to a two year investigation into improper benefits for […]

Nothing Says Loyal Like Silver Bullet Points

Ah, the joys of a new server to bring you the midweek morass that is SBP. Thanks to everyone’s patience as we had a bit of a sabbatical earlier this week to upgrade the hamsters in the wheel. Buckeye 411 Before we get into the usual links and fun-making, I wanted to talk a bit […]
