Something is afoot at the Circle K

I know Hale broke it and Kyle talked about the Okie State beat writer’s bold prediction.

I’ll save you some time:

Sept. 5 vs. Georgia

Despite growing doubt nationally about the Cowboys, they announce their presence with authority, handing Georgia a 21-point defeat to open the season.

Now, the interesting thing is that with the rest of his predictions about big wins, he specifically mentions what player or players will step up (or in the case of the Texas game, predicting that Colt McCoy throws four picks).  The Georgia game, he just predicts a three touchdown win.

Hey, I will grant Georgia has plenty of questions.  I will also grant Oklahoma State has some serious play makers.  But as Paul Westerdawg pointed out, the match-up to watch is rush end vs. OT.  Georgia doesn’t have to stop all the passes, just enough to kill drives, since Oklahoma State thrives off the quick read, down-field passing game.  If they cannot run the ball, which I think is a real probability, they have to pass.  In order to pass, they have to have time to pass.  In order to complete passes, receivers have to be open.  For receivers to be open, the Cowboys need some one on one match-ups, with vertical separation.

Also, as PWD pointed out, Martinez’s defenses are solid against supper star receivers.  So for this prediction to come close to holding, somethings got to give.  Either the writer has supreme confidence in the O-line’s ability to give Cowboy QB Zac Robinson time to pass or he thinks very little about Georgia’s Dbacks and linebackers. Or he just thinks Georgia’s offense is so emaciated that there will be a plethora of 3 and outs. As I granted, there are questions, but I don’t see a 21 points worth of questions.

My guess is this guy will have a thing or two to say about that, as well.  So, is he seeing something we aren’t?

    What do you think of paying to tailgate?
    by Bill King, AJC.Com

    Did you hear about the ruckus going on at Auburn over the university partnering with a private company to charge for tailgating access to a new campus green space adjacent to Jordan-Hare Stadium?

    The company, called Tailgate Guys, will charge from $222 per game ($1,775 total) to $535 per game ($4,275 total) for the full season for what an Auburn official called a “stress-free” tailgating experience in which tents, tables and chairs are set up and taken down for you. Tailgating for individual games is available for $300 to $1,250. Those signing up also have the option of ordering coolers filled with ice, paper products and utensils and full-service catering.

    The pay-tailgate plan is limited to one area of the campus that was a construction site for the past two years and before that a parking lot. Auburn and Tailgate Guys have a revenue-sharing agreement, but the school maintains it’s not about the money (oh, of course not) as much as wanting to protect the park-like green space. Tailgating on the rest of the campus will remain free, Auburn says.

    The move has prompted some Tiger fans to holler something other than “War Eagle!” on message boards and blogs, with AL.com reporting nearly 6,000 fans have joined a Facebook page devoted to keeping the school’s tailgating areas free of charge. Fans fear that eventually other areas of campus will require a fee for tailgating as well.

    Alabama started charging for some tailgating spots last season and Auburn says similar programs are in place at other SEC schools, including Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

    So far, UGA hasn’t scrambled aboard this bandwagon, but you’ve got to wonder how long before the numbers crunchers at Butts-Mehre decide such a plan would be a good way to pay for some of that postgame cleanup. Can UGA pass up the temptation to charge for those prime tailgating spots in front of the UGA Library on North Campus?

    So our question today is whether you’d be willing to pay for tailgating on campus, even if it was just a limited area, or do you hate the whole idea? Feel free to comment, vote in the poll or both.

    I don’t know. I think 21 is probably a bit much, but I think we could have real trouble with the Cowboys first game of the season. I admire the program for not taking a patsy, but this one could go very badly. Or very well.

    Article writing is also a fun, if you be acquainted with after that you can write otherwise it is difficult to write.

    I leave a response whenever I appreciate
    a article on a site or if I have something to valuable to
    contribute to the discussion. Usually it is caused by the sincerness
    communicated in the article I read. And on this article Something is afoot at the
    Circle K | A Bulldog in Exile. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I do have a couple of
    questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be
    simply me or does it seem like a few of these remarks come across
    like they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to keep up with you.
    Could you list every one of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Why people still make use of to read news papers when in this technological world all is accessible on net?

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and everything. Nevertheless think of if you added some
    great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its
    niche. Good blog!

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
