Swami the Magazine: You’re Killin’ Me Smalls

Welcome to another edition of Swami the Magazine! Tonight the Swami, James and the Swamettes kicked their feet up and watched a classic film from the Swami’s youth… The Sandlot. So with that trip down memory lane, the staff thought they would compile a group of films that reflect the childhood of the Swami (with a bonus quote from each) and give a little nostalgia with each pick this week. So let’s get right to it.

The Picks!

Virginia Tech v. Georgia Tech – The Princess Bride – “WRONG. Your ears you keep and I’ll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, “Dear God! What is that thing,” will echo in your perfect ears. That is what “to the pain means.” It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever.”…GT’s season feels like that. – Virginia Tech 34-17p-bride-3

Nebraska v. Minnesota – The Sandlot – “Let me tell you something kid; Everybody gets one chance to do something great. Most people never take the chance, either because they’re too scared, or they don’t recognize it when it spits on their shoes.” (Feels like “My Shot” from Hamilton could be played after that quote!)Nebraska 31-28sandlot

Oklahoma v. Baylor – Back to the Future “My name is Lord Vader. I am an Extraterrestrial from the planet Vulcan.”Oklahoma 30-27back-to-the-future

Alabama v. Mississippi State – The Karate Kid“Sweep the Leg”Alabama 33-24the-karate-kid

Texas v. West Virginia – Honey, I Shrunk the Kids – “The early worm catches the fish, Russell. Remember that.” – Texas 27-24honey-i-shrunk-the-kids

LSU v. Arkansas – Home Alone“Bless this highly nutritious microwavable macaroni and cheese dinner and the people who sold it on sale. Amen.”LSU 24-17home-alone

Washington v. USC – Hook“You are the Pan”Washington 35-20

Oklahoma State v. Texas Tech – The Mighty Ducks“Yes sir, Mr. Ducksworth. Thank you very much, Mr. Ducksworth. Quack, quack, quack, Mr. Ducksworth!”Oklahoma State 42-38mighty-ducks

Auburn v. Georgia – The Little Rascals – “I got a dollar, I got a dollar, I got a dollar hey, hey, hey, hey!” – Auburn 27-21little-rascals

Penn State v. Indiana – Space Jam – “I tought I taw – I did! I did! I did tee Michael Jordan!” – Penn State 27-23space-jam

The Guru’s Take

The Guru is in a free fall. Not as bad as Michigan State’s free fall (great googily-moogily, that has been steep), but not exactly good. This week, he’ll see if the Big 12 can provide a soft landing. Texas has won consecutive conference games and is playing at home. Ostensibly, winning out might save Charlie Strong’s job. But West Virginia would still like to play in a New Year’s Day bowl and they need to win out to accomplish that feat. So what happens when a somewhat-moveable object meets a kind-of-stoppable force? The road team succeeds in a slight upset. In a game with plenty of offense, expect the Mountaineer D to make a big stop late in the 4th quarter to ice it. WVU 38, UT 35.

James & the Swamettes

Sooo… after watching the Sandlot the kids had to go to bed instead of making picks. So we’ll just spit out the scores and give you a peek at the coolest helmets of this weekend
