Quick Picks: Northern Iowa +1 vs. Michigan State

March 26, 2010

1 Comment

Northern Iowa LogoAs most of our literally dozens of dedicated readers probably remember, ole Ciaran got lit up with Frump’s last pick. Overall we’ve been pretty good, but that NCSU +5 @ UAB in the NIT was nothing short of embarrassing. Then again, I’m not sure anyone could have seen it coming, at least to that extent, but all apologies nonetheless.
Well, it’s time to get one back, and I think tonight’s (marquee?) Northern Iowa-Michigan State game presents us with the best opportunity. Make the jump for some trends and analysis as to why…

Kim Kardashian shows off her lovely lady lumpsOr: Drawing attention to yourself, positive or negative, as you desire, at whatever traditional, obligatory junket you may be attending in honor of Super Bowl XLIV.

We all know Super Bowl props are “fun” (don’t we?), but not all Super Bowl props are created equal. After all, who not named “Reggie Bush” can typically get any bang for their buck in relation to the size of Kim Kardashian’s ass?

Well, tomorrow night, the whole world has been given the opportunity to ride Kim Kardashian’s ass to glory.  Gambling glory, that is, and the fun doesn’t end there…

Frumpzilla’s 1st Annual NFL Playoff Pick ‘Em

January 13, 2010

5 Comments

Bengal rabbit, or "Bungal."  Many thanks to Frumpzilla's geneticists.

In a true clash of the titans, the Frumpzilla staff presents its picks for the playoffs.  The favorite here could be The Chese as he just won a season-long pick ’em; although, I’m sure his partner (Beeker) carried him…..so, nevermind.

Tiebreakers will be decided in the ocatagon…the caged
octagon….with hands dipped in glass.  And steel ladders and chairs.
And Ms. Elizabeth ring-side.

(That pic is for you, Admiral)

UPDATE:  STANDINGS…..

TGHM…2-2

B.  Diddy…2-2

Cochese…1-3

Ciaran…0-4

Admiral Fleece McStaticpants…0-4

11 Days of Bowling: BCS Championship Game

Nick Saban is going for this 2nd BCS Championship tonight Mack Brown will also be seeking his 2nd BCS Title tonight

 And now for the big one.  The one for all the marbles.  The only marbles, depending on who you ask.  The BCS Championship.  Nick Saban and Mack Brown are both seeking their 2nd BCS Title tonight; Texas, its 5th Mythical National Championship…Alabama, its 37th (depending on who you ask).

After Central Michigan could only give us a push last night against Troy, Frumpzilla is sitting at 9-6-2 for our feature.  With that in mind, we’re definitely in the playmoney regardless of what happens tonight, and that’s always nice.  Still, think it’s time to press our luck a bit more than usual and try to get us to 11-6-2.  Frump it here for how we’re gonna do this in a BCS Title game that packs a bit more drama than usual…

Charles Barkley is deathly afraid of Alabama winning the BCS Title

January 6, 2010

7 Comments

Sir Charles is an Auburn man, through and throughAuburn Tiger (or perhaps War Eagle, or Fighting Tiger Eagle, or something) alumnus, Charles Barkley, has never been one to shy away from a microphone.  Nor has the Round Mound of Rebound ever been one to mince words, and he’s certainly not doing that when it comes to his thoughts on the prospects of Alabama winning another national championship; or, as any true college football fan has come to call it, Mythical National Championship, that is.

“I always tell people the three saddest days of my life were the day Elvis died, the day JFK died and the day Alabama fired Mike Shula,” Barkley told reporters at a presser for tonight’s GMAC Bowl in Mobile.  “This could be the longest year of our lives if they win.  They are the worst winners in the history of civilization.”

Well said, Sir Charles.  Alabama folks are pretty uppity, yeah?  Citing all those Championships during 4 loss seasons, and stuff.  Frump it here for a video clip of Barkley’s comments at the press conference and full article from Al.com.

Central Michigan vs. Troy in the 2009 GMAC Bowl

And now, the bowl we’ve all been waiting for.  That’s right, Frumpsters, it’s Central Michigan vs. Troy in the GMAC Bowl; and timed perfectly, the night before the BCS National Championship.  The whole staff here at Frumpzilla is thumped up for this one, espiecally considering that, after Iowa came through for us in convincing fashion last night (The Gingerhead Man owes me some booze for that one, by the way), we can hit double digits in the win column if when we pick this one correctly. 

Expect us (and possibly you) to be 10-6-1 after tonight.  Frump it here for why…

2010 Fed Ex Orange Bowl: Iowa vs. Georgia Tech Okay, so we missed a day, but I think B-Diddy’s excellent post on the Fiesta Bowl probably redeems us (despite his incredible insensitivity). 

Now sitting at 8-6-1 for the feature, tonight we take a look at what appears to be a relatively drab matchup between the Iowa Hawkeyes and ACC Champion Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl.  8:20 PM ET, Fox.
