    To say that the internet is the gift that keeps on giving implies that we're cool with all of its little trends, memes, and time wasters. To be clear, there is plenty of repetitive, over-thought sludge that comes from our friend, the world wide web. Tebowing and flash mobs had their runs as general ... More >>

    Move Over, Johnny Football! Kevin Sumlin To Be Named WWE World Champion On Sunday

    2012 was an unbelievable whirlwind for Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin.

    TCU to the Big 12: What's Changed Since the Southwest Conference Went Kaput

    ​Earlier this week, Texas Christian University officially accepted an invitation to join the Big 12 Conference, which sort of models the old Southwest Conference, a division that the Horned Frogs competed in from 1923 to 1996.

    Big 12 Title Game -- Loser Leaves Town

    The Big 12 says goodbye to corn hats​It's probably appropriate that the most recognizable non-player/non-coach on the sidelines at the Big 12 Championship Game Saturday night was WWE Hall of Fame announcer Jim Ross because the final Oklahoma-Nebraska matchup (at least for the foreseeable futur ...

    NFL & College Football -- Weekend's Best Bets

    When it comes to college football, I'm not a staunch traditionalist. I believe the season is more compelling when the longtime powers are strong (Translation: Texas, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, and Miami all being mediocre is, to me, a bad thing.), and yet I picked Boise State before the season ...

    Oklahoma Football Gets A Houston Radio Outlet; Aggies Still Out Of Luck

    ​As you'll remember from our post on 1560 The Game a few weeks ago, it was mentioned that the station was in negotiations with a Big 12 Conference school to air its football games this season.
