College Football Week 3 Wrap and Standings

Just a few things to say before we get to who won and failed yesterday here at the Bang. First, our thoughts and prayers are with Michigan State coach Mike Dantonio while he recovers from a mild heart attack. He was rushed to the hospital for heart surgery just hours after making the gutsiest call…

Fight Night Wrap very late…

Since I’m days late with this, I won’t bug you with another blog post full of post-fight analysis. I comment on the Chael Sonnen story that broke this afternoon. It sucks. Plain and simple. Chael Sonnen is good for the sport of MMA. He got people talking, he’s a top talent, he pushed one of…

College Football Week 3 Quick Picks

Georgia Tech @ North Carolina (-135) An ACC Coastal battle, last year’s meeting wasn’t pretty for the Heels. The 24-7 scoreline was deceptive as UNC totaled only 154 yards. The Jackets have scored only 7 points in their last 2 trips to Chapel Hill, but one of those was a 7-0 win. BYU @ Florida…

NFL Week 2

It was a great opening weekend for the NFL. The Saints win over the Vikings was nothing like what was expected, but we got to watch some stellar defense combat two offenses that we all know can move the ball. The Colts were bested in their opener by a Texans team that can run the…

College Football Week 2 Picks

NFL Week 1

I just want to start by saying that I have never been more excited for a football season than I am for 2010. Maybe it’s my six fantasy football teams. Maybe it’s living in central Texas (within 2hrs of Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and College Station). Maybe it’s the idea of competing against my…

Fantasy Football Week 1

OK, by now most fantasy football teams have been drafted and owners are tweaking their line-ups in preparation for Thursday’s season opener. Life is as it should be. I refrained from writing anything prior to now because I don’t really believe in draft strategies for Snake Draft leagues, and I am not in any auction…

Are You Ready For Some Football???

It is that time of year again, college football kickoff. Finally! Tomorrow night, the 2010 season kicks off and we here at the Bang are huge fans of football. I myself have 3 televisions set up in my living room for the purpose of watching as much football as possible every Saturday. So the arrival…
