First, watch this video of the Heisman Awards ceremony, and listen to former Oklahoma Sooner Billy Sims make a complete ass of himself.
Then give a read to one of the funniest things I’ve come across in some time, as Every Day Should Be Saturday imagines what would happen if Billy Sims showed up at a one-year-old’s birthday party.…Read the rest of this entry...
As expected, the Oklahoma Sooners jumped my Texas Longhorns in today’s BCS rankings. As a result, Oklahoma is off to Kansas City next weekend to play the collapsing Missouri Tigers for the Big Twelve Championship. Win there, and the Sooners are most likely off to Miami to play in the national championship against the winner of the SEC Championship between Florida and Alabama.
In no way do I want to belittle Oklahoma. Ok, I want to belittle Oklahoma just about …Read the rest of this entry...
Texas Tech was due for a down game, and they picked the wrong time to do it. Mike Leach dug into his bag of tricks and conjured one of his defenses of the past. In addition, he told his offensive line to spend the night falling backwards onto their butts.
Oklahoma, meanwhile, was mean, nasty, and much, much faster than Tech. Stoops showed no sign of letting up until the game was well away in …Read the rest of this entry...
With about an hour left until kickoff, I thought I’d close down the poll and post the results:
Question One: Who are you rooting for this Saturday night (10/22/08) between the Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Oklahoma Sooners?
- Red Raiders! Guns up! – 28%
- Boomer Sooner! – 33%
- Can they both lose? – 22%
- Can I hope for a small meteor to hit the stadium shortly after kickoff? – 0%
- Don’t really care. 17%
- Isn’t Project Runway on? –
With the Longhorns idle this weekend in preparation for Texas A&M on Thanksgiving, all the eyes of Texas are upon the Texas Tech Red Raiders versus Oklahoma Sooners game Saturday night in Norman. While Texas has attractive paths with either team winning, the road ahead will certainly become clearer when the game is over.
Note: All projections depend upon Texas beating A&M. A third straight loss to the Aggies is too horrible to even imagine.…Read the rest of this entry...
Of course not, but the Oklahoma press had a lot of questions about their loss to Texas.
This quote, in particular, gave me a warm feeling in my heart:
Tailback Chris Brown said the Sooners endured a dead-quiet bus ride back from Dallas on Saturday night, soaking in their first loss before moving on to address some of the areas of concern Stoops was asked about on Tuesday.
When will they learn that Bob Stoops sure can recruit, but …Read the rest of this entry...
Midway through the Longhorns’ tough six game stretch, Texas has beaten Arkansas, Colorado, and top ranked Oklahoma, to go 6-0 for the season.
The convincing 45-35 win over the Sooners vaulted Texas to its first mid-season #1 ranking since 1984. Given the target that #1’s have had on their back the last couple of seasons, it may not be a comfortable place to be. Fortunately, Texas has a 12-1 record the week after being ranked #1, if you believe …Read the rest of this entry...
