Nickname Battle: Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl

Utes (Utah) vs Rams (Colorado State) Before we get started, let me just say I am really confused about what the heck a Ute is. I get it is a term for someone from the state of Utah but where did their hawk mascot come from? Someone that is a Utah fan probably knows why… read more »

Stache’s Spreads: Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl

  Utah Utes (-2.5) vs Colorado State Rams (+2.5) In the battle of Rocky Mountain colleges who lost their head coaches to the University of Florida, Utah and Colorado State drew the lucky card of having their bowl in the city with by far the most holiday joy in the United States: Las Vegas. Yes,… read more »

Nickname Battle: Gildan New Mexico Bowl

Aggies (Utah State) vs Miners (UTEP) Ah, a true battle between two groups of working-class, blue collar American workforces that run this great country’s backbone with little to no glory. Now that I’m done praising these nicknames, let’s poke holes in them. In the Aggies you have a bunch of people who have a fetish… read more »

Stache’s Spreads: Gildan New Mexico Bowl

Utah State Aggies (-10) vs UTEP Miners (+10) New Mexico, the state that saw New England and said to themselves they want a piece of action and rather than calling themselves New Canada, because that would be stupid, instead rubbed their name in the faces of the country their land was taken from.

Nickname Battle: R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl

Wolfpack (Nevada) vs Ragin’ Cajuns (Louisiana-Lafayette) I’m just going to go ahead and make the assumption that “Ragin’ Cajuns” in this case represents the people of the great state of Louisiana. Having only watched the first handful of Cajun Pawn Stars episodes along with the entire season of Real World: New Orleans because at that… read more »

Stache’s Spreads: R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl

  Nevada Wolf Pack (-1) vs Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns (+1) The New Orleans Bowl is a very interesting one to kick off the bowl season with, as it starts at 11AM. As the expression goes, if a tree falls in the woods, does it truly makes a sound? Since there is no way for us… read more »

Nickname Wars: FXFL (Fall Experimental Football League)

  Football by far and away is the most popular sport currently in the United States. When I say football, I’m not talking about the wussy European kind. I’m talking about the ultra masculine kind that involves a bunch a dudes passing some skin around hoping to score…okay, that’s sounds a little bit off. With… read more »

Nickname Wars: Evergreen Premier League – EPLWA (Semis and Final)

Well, wasn’t that a great opening round of Nickname Wars. I mean, I disrespected my hometown, slammed a team for copying the wrong nickname from the WISL, and even had the opportunity to interject the Hunger Games into the war. I mean, you should all know this. I don’t think you as the reader would… read more »

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin Will Do Anything For Charity

  With it being in the middle of the holiday season, the Salvation Army is out and about with the red buckets and bells asking for donations at seemingly every single grocery store in the United States (clearly this is what Girl and Boy Scouts do when they get older and need their fix of… read more »
