Notes ’bout Nuthin: 

The Football Super Picker is Back in 2020!!

With a record of 1,246 correct picks and 2 incorrect picks, FOS B in T will make all his high school, college and pro picks at full stadiums with team Coronavirus masks on everyone!!  


Jacob Johnson, High School Sophomore from Mustang, Oklahoma could be best dual-sport athlete in America!!

The two-sport Mustang phenom, already a highly coveted football recruit, had long been awaiting his first Division I basketball offers - but to no avail. That all changed in a span of 48 hours this past week, as Oklahoma State, TCU, and Oklahoma extended basketball scholarships to the 2023 standout.  In-state schools Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have offered football and basketball scholarships to Jacobe Johnson before the start of his sophomore year at Mustang High!!  At 6’3” and 185 pounds he could be a wideout or defensive back in college or a guard in college basketball!!  He is a huge Sooner fan but his dad played basketball for Billy Tubbs at TCU!!

FOS Top 8 Friday High School Football 
Diners 2020:

  1.  Click’s Steakhouse – Pawnee
The shining stars at Click’s are the huge, hand-cut steaks that are uniquely seasoned with a closely-guarded secret recipe and cooked on a hot griddle. The steaks at Click’s are known for being fork-tender and plate-sized. Choose between prime rib, filet mignon, ribeyes or T-bones and feast on Southern side dishes such as okra, sweet potatoes and sautéed mushrooms. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with Click’s made-from-scratch pies and a serving of cherry, apple, peach or blackberry cobbler.

2.  White Dog Hill,   Clinton, Ok
White Dog Hill Restaurant in Clinton is the perfect place to go to take you a million miles away from the busyness of life and the perfect place to go before a Clinton football game!!  It is situated on a hill and offers panoramic prairie views, amazing sunsets, incredible food, and a nostalgic atmosphere.

3.  Kendall’s Restaurant.  Noble, Oklahoma  
Kendall’s Restaurant is one of those small town restaurants with a reputation that reaches around the state. South of Norman in the town of Noble, Kendall’s Restaurant (100 S Main St, Noble) is known for chicken fried steak and fried Oklahoma mountain oysters!!

4.  Hammett House Restaurant – Claremore Hot spot for Claremore Football games!

A local staple since the 1960s, the Hammet House is known for its home cooking and well-prepared American comfort food. Visitors to this Claremore mainstay will enjoy freshly-cut steaks, onion ring balls, old-fashioned burgers, catfish “po-boy” sandwiches, pork chops, ham steaks, hot mashed potato rolls and more. A trip to the Hammett House wouldn’t be complete without a serving of the restaurant’s famous mile-high pies, made fresh each morning.

5.   Hatfield's Grill, Address: 11223 East Admiral Boulevard, Tulsa, OK, 74116.      East Central, Hale, Central Memorial, and BTW are in range for this 5-star restaurant!!
Hatfield’s Grill will never let you down with their excellent service and tasty food. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner six days a week. It's located inside Garrett's Country Store & Grill, so you can pick up some snacks, gifts, and drinks to take home. One of the top recommendations from patrons is the fried chicken. It's breaded just right and seasoned with the perfect amount of spices.

6.  Mugsy's Grubhouse, Address: 215 West Chicago Avenue, Yale, OK 74085

Looking for a new dining spot to enjoy a delicious meal in a great atmosphere? This small town grub house in Yale serves up the most delicious food that’s worth the extra drive to experience it. It's a Western-themed steakhouse that will take you back in time to the late 1800s but with a beautiful modern twist.

7.  Tacos N Taters Fajitas, Address: 112 West Floral Avenue, Frederick, OK, 73542
This small town restaurant offers a unique combination of Mexican food and potatoes. You wouldn’t think the two go together like bread and butter, but they know how to mix things up so they complement each other just right. They bring unique flavors from Mexico to the Sooner State and offer some of the best Mexican food around.

8.  Prairie Smoke BBQ,  Blackwell, Ok

Close to Friday Night Lights at Tonkawa, Newkirk, Perry, and of course Blackwell! will take you about 10 minutes to get there but it is soooo much better than the franchise choices. This place is right in the middle of the old downtown district. The parking is at the front door. The service is super fast, the food excellent, and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. You will see far more locals than outsiders, so that speaks volumes.

FOS Projected National League Central Division Finish:

1.  St Louis Cardinals -      36-24      --

The Pirates have bat thunder but getting pitching is still the story!

College Football Tailgating CAN be done!

FOS - Tailgating During College Games With No Fans is VITAL!

FOS B in T


FOS Notes ’bout Nuthin:

B in T and Faked Out Sports can learn a few things from Fake News!!

I have watched more CNN, Fox News and MSNBC in 4 months this than I have in my previous 92 years on this planet!!

The Media informs me the following:

If you wear a Coronavirus mask you are going to vote for Mumbles Biden and if you do not wear a mask you are voting for Plump Trump!!

Trump's press secretary is a cute blond and should not wear a mask, also not much of a personality!

The CBS Evening News starts each newscast with the world is ending and finishes with a special piece on Balloonfest 2020!

On a windy day in Washington, D.C. President Trump's hair look like dust tornado in Anadarko, Oklahoma!

Most democrats believe Nancy Pelosi is a brunette fox and Trump Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is butt ugly!!

Republicans and most other humans think that Mrs. McEnany is a stone-cold press Goddess and Nanny Pelosi is the wicked witch of Gremlins!!

The CBS Evening News starts each newscast with the world is ending and finishes with a special piece on Balloonfest 2020!. 

FOS Top 4 College Football Tailgate Party Towns in Each Conference:

American Athletic Conference Top Tailgates:

    1 SMU- Pony fans don’t tailgate, they Boulevard. Bishop Boulevard on the SMU
campus in Dallas is the pregame hub at SMU games. If you want to experience what it’s like to attend an SMU Mustangs game, then you need to stop by The Boulevard.
2.  Houston  With the opening of TDECU Stadium in 2014 football and tailgating have returned to the University of Houston Campus. The university is pulling out all the stops to develop a strong tailgating culture here at Houston. You’ll find that not only does Houston offer you a wealth of tailgating options, but the fans here like most Texans take football and tailgating very seriously creating an excellent tailgating environment.

3.  Cincinnati
Tailgating is alive and well at Cincinnati where you’ll find a bevy of tailgate options that will satisfy any die-hard tailgater. Here at Cincinnati, you’ll find not only an on-campus tailgate area known as The GRID, but you’ll also find that multiple block parties are going on around the campus on gameday that you can join in on.

4.  Central Florida
UCF is one of the largest universities in the country, and as a result, it has one of the biggest and best tailgates in the country. The fans here are pretty diehard when it comes to cheering on their Knights and they love to tailgate and let loose before watching the Knights take the field.

5.  Tulsa

NOTE:  Tulsa University tailgating can be whole lot of fun and at times is more exciting than attending the actual football game!  Thanks to Hasty-Bake and the Lambda Chi Alph house on TU tailgating grounds, I have trouble remembering numerous games!!

Big 12 Conference Top Tailgates:

  1. West Virginia University
Let’s put it this way: the fact that “Go Mountaineers” and “Let’s Drink Some Beers” rhyme with each other is a fact that isn’t lost among the West Virginia faithful. But these fans are as passionate as you’ll find at any University on the eastern seaboard, with or without the benefit of suds.

2.  University of Oklahoma
With all due respect to their Big 12 counterparts one state to the south, people will tell you that Oklahoma knows how to bring the southwestern flare to a tailgate. There’s a little something for everyone in Norman on game day, and the center of activity is near the intersection of Jenkins Avenue and Lindsey Street, just south of the stadium.

3.  University of Texas
Even students and alumni who went to college in some of the most aesthetically pleasing Universities in this nation has to offer will tell you that there are few more beautiful locales than the campus and surroundings of the University of Texas.

4.  Texas Christian University
TCU has recently partnered with the industry leader, Tailgate Guys, to offer premium tailgate packages in front of Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena for the 2020 Pandemic Tailgate year!!

FOS Big 10 Conference Top Tailgates::

  1. Iowa
The best part about tailgating at Iowa games is that the tailgating doesn’t stop with kickoff.  School officials allow tailgating to last for hours after the game ends, which is a good thing, especially when the Hawkeyes win.  The other signature piece of Iowa tailgates is the Big (Bleeping) Turkey Leg, began by the recently retired Chuck Ford and continued by a plethora of others.

2.  Ohio State

No tailgate list would be complete without the university that brags about being The Ohio State University.  Ohio State is steeped in tradition, including everything from Skull Sessions (pep rallies) at St. John Arena, The Best Damn Band in the Land, the wearing of scarlet and gray, the seriousness about competing for a national championship, and the spelling out of O-H-I-O.

3.  Penn State
Happy Valley is hours away from a major metropolitan area, so a city emerges on game days.  Beaver Stadium becomes a virtual snowfall when fans wear white during White Out games (usually against rivals like Ohio State or Michigan).  The student section becomes “Zombie Nation” when the techno song “Kernkraft 400” is blasted on the loud system.  The vibration from the students jumping became such a concern at one point that stadium officials tried cutting back the number of times the song was played throughout the game, replacing it with The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” and Blur’s “Song 2.”  After student complaints (and engineering studies deemed the stadium safe), the song was brought back.  

4.  Nebraska

Memorial Stadium, nestled near downtown Lincoln, Neb., gives fans a chance to bar hop before games, a nice convenience considering the alcohol restrictions on campus.  The downtown experience is electric. The town becomes the third-largest city in the state on game days.T  The Unity Walk by the players is also memorable.  But over the past few years, tailgate backyard parties have become an epic adventure for students.  

Southeastern Conference Top Taigates::

1.  Texas A&M
There’s a reason Texas A&M fans are called The 12th Man. Enter Kyle Field, and see 102,733 fans sway in unison to the chants by Aggie Yell Leaders.  As far as tailgating, the food and hospitality are top notch.  Cooking is an art form in College Station with outrageously delicious selections like smoked brisket, stuffed jalapenos, bacon mixed with cream cheese, ribeye wrapped with bacon and covered with bleu cheese, and all types of prime cuts — including gator bites when Florida comes to visit.
If you follow college football, you’ve heard of the Grove. And if you’ve never been, you need to put it on your bucket list.  A leafy, 10-acre wonderland of tents is college football’s version of fine dining and etiquette.  Approximately 25,000 fans fill the area for Rebels contests, and it’s the reason why Ole Miss has a saying, “We may not win every game, but we never lose a party."  You can’t do any cooking with an open flame, but there are plenty of things to do.  Other traditions include the Walk of Champions, started in 1985 by coach Billy Brewer, who began leading the players through the packed crowd on the route through the Grove to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

3.  LSU
When it comes to food, LSU might just provide the best in college football.
Walk the Parade Grounds, and it’s like a smorgasbord of Cajun food, including boudin, jambalaya, sausage, sauce piquante, crawfish, etouffee, and gumbo.  Food is so central to the LSU experience that a cheer can be heard throughout the weekend: “Hot boudin, cold couche-couche, come on Tigers, push, push, push!”

4.  Georgia vs. Florida (Huge Cocktail Party!)
The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party lives up to its name.  Fans decked out in blue and orange or red and black pitch tents and set up grills on parking lots, underpasses, grassy lots, nooks, crannies and every imaginable spot within walking distance of Everbank Field in Jacksonville.  For this tailgate occasion (usually in late October or early November), an average of 150,000 fans arrive for game day and many never make it into the stadium, choosing to party throughout the game along St. John’s River.

Small College Top Tailgates:

  1. Harvard-Yale
The Harvard-Yale rivalry dates back to 1875, so there must be some knowledge of how to tailgate at the contest known as "The Game."  Yale leads the series 67-59-8 (what happened with the ties?).  Tailgating is a refined traditional event, but The Game is more known for its pranks.  The most famous practical joke was in 2004, when Yale students got the Harvard student section to raise placards that read "We Suck." The prank went viral and was featured on several news shows as well as "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"

2.  North Dakota State
Bison home games are like homecoming — for every home game.  As the saying goes, "the strength of the bison is the herd," and fans exhibit the pride in tremendous ways, so much so that ESPN's "College GameDay" makes the trip to Fargo on a regular basis.  Food selections include deer, buffalo or moose, delicacies hard to find anywhere else on this list.

3.  McDaniel College
McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, may be small in size but it’s one that shouldn’t be missed. Parking spots fill up fast at this drive-in tailgate where Green Terror fans can drive up to the ridge that overlooks the field. This means that you can tailgate while you are watching the game, and it doesn’t get much better than that.
