Unscientific Unempirical Totally Ridiculous but Halfway Serious CFB Predictions: Pac-12

In 2009, I went through all the major BCS conferences and created some semi-amusing, totally off-base and (eventually) inaccurate predictions and bowl projections for the upcoming college football season. In 2010, I was working nonstop throughout the summer without a break and never had the chance to put together some predictions. So now that I […]

Loving the Big 12

Long story short, I left Palm Springs after the Big 12 Conference offered me the 1-year internship/co-op position of “Internet Services Assistant” in June. I started on July 1st and it’s been an absolute joy. It really doesn’t feel like work at all. The hours are very low-stress, usually 8 to 5 unless I have […]

ESPN vs. Mike Leach?

I was chatting with a friend and colleague yesterday about the whole Mike Leach vs. Texas Tech saga. Let me preface my summary/commentary on our discussion by mentioning I’m a huge Mike Leach fan. I think his whole act – the pirate stuff, the bizarre personality, Friday Night Lights cameo, hilarious press conferences – is […]

Charlie Weis and wastefulness

Preface: I dislike Notre Dame, but I don’t hate them. Nor do I enjoy the undue attention they receive from ESPN and NBC for playing pedestrian football almost every year for the past 10 years (besides their Fiesta/Sugar Bowl losses). And in those 10 years, it’s become more and more common for the definition of […]

PA guys in Big 12

I’ve been fortunate enough to watch enough Big 12 football in my career at Mizzou to hear most of the stadium PA announcers either in person or on TV. Here’s a quick list of how they stack up, in my boredom. 1) Randy Wright, Missouri: Of course he’s a huge homer and I’m totally biased […]

November update

This is the 1st Friday I’ve been free since the start of the semester! I’ve shot football games just about every Friday night, and with high school football just about over, I’m pretty much free now on Friday nights. I’m gearing up for a trip to Manhattan, Kansas tomorrow for Mizzou’s game against the Kansas […]

Mizzou got shucked

Put simply, Missouri did not have a good game last week. I produced the 6 sports, and I was pleased with how it went. Gervino went live from the 6th floor of the press box with a live interview during the sports block, and then a Cardinals gm. 2 NLDS highlight. We scrambled to get […]

Long overdue update

Well, I’m now a sports reporter/producer at KOMU and despite it being MUCH less stressful than news, I am still at the station almost every day. I work live truck for the Monday/Wednesday morning show, and for the 5/6 on Tuesdays. It’s been a lot less stressful this semester working live truck, too. The early […]
