Friday Cheat Sheet: Kenny Hill Sets Record, Trick Plays Explained And More

Are you ready for college football? Of course you are! Here's all you need to win your sports weekend.

A&M dominated South Carolina on Thursday with a 52-28 season opening win. Quarterback Kenny Hill broke Johnny Manziel's single game passing record throwing for 511 yards and three touchdowns. Manziel approved, even giving the A&M quarterback a familiar nickname, which Hill doesn't necessarily want.

Speaking of Johnny Manziel. Have you seen Johnny BamBoogie?

Need to get up to speed on the new format in college football? Here's all you need to know about the College Football Playoff just don't call it the "college football playoffs".

Don't know the difference between a flea flicker and the reverse option? Here's all you need to know about trick plays in football.

Cowboys Cowboys Cowboys 
Adrian Peterson wants to play for the Cowboys. Could the NFL consider a conversation the Vikings running back had with Jerry Jones in June tampering? Jones says not.

Peterson could definitely help Dallas, who denied the report as soon as the story broke. Even the uber-optimistic Jones is warning fans to manage their expectations for the 2014 season.

"This bunch, knows we have our backs against the wall," he said at the Kickoff Luncheon earlier this week.

The Cowboys lost 27-3 to the Broncos in the preseason finale, making this their first winless preseason since 2000. How did they do that year? 5-11. What do you think their record will be in 2014?

My Prediction
Given the whole "new era at Texas" thing with Charlie Strong ushering in more muscle than Mack Brown ever flexed, I think Texas will come out with a vengeance. They have a talented running game, led by Johnathan Gray and Malcom Brown and I expect the Longhorns to run roughshod over the Mean Green.

Baylor wants a "gold out" on Sunday against SMU. You can find more Baylor & SMU looks in my GameDay Style Guide or check out my GameDay Style board on Pinterest. 

McLane Stadium does not allow bags larger than 12" x 6" x 12" which is pretty liberal in comparison to other stadium purse policies. Any of these purses will be allowed into the game.

My Prediction
Baylor led the nation in scoring last year. With the new stadium, the buildup surrounding their preseason ranking, the fact that Bears defensive coordinator Phil Bennett is facing a Mustangs team he coached from 2002 to 2007, I think Baylor will decimate SMU.

Johnny Manziel As Johnny "JamBoogie"


If Johnny Manziel's NFL career tanks, he's got a ton of options. I can see him being something along the lines of a nightclub owner or vodka promoter but Manziel has proven he's got acting chops AND good enough moves to teach aerobics.

This commercial he did for Snicker's is freaking hysterical.

Well played, Snickers. Well, played. 

What To Wear To The Florida State/Oklahoma State Game at AT&T Stadium

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

College football kicks off this weekend at AT&T Stadium with the Advocare Cowboys Classic featuring top-ranked Florida State and Oklahoma State.

You can dress up at AT&T Stadium. In fact, it's expected. Don't wear a jersey with ratty jeans, a ruffly FSU t-shirt dress or an OSU shirt with bows all over it. We're covering what to wear and what to say if you're heading to the game and don't really give a rat's ass about football but want to sound like you know a thing or two about the matchup.
