We'll start with Stunned Saddam. Comment: OSU's # 1 fan!
At least Sean's team won in overtime before the game this afternoon, flow. Missouri State upset number 7 Wisconsin in the South Padre invitational, then the pokes beat Missouri State. We beat Auburn yesterday. That's a positive.
Big 12 championship game: Nebraska vs Oklahoma.
Yep, I expect big things from the team this season, hopefully Sean has trimmed off the Prima Donnas, and we can play some ball.
Long drive back to Atlanta from Athens for GT fans, Georgia beats Georgia Tech 15-12, thats UGAs 6th straight win against Tech.
Flashlight vs. Techman for the Big 12 just doesn't have the same panache as Flashlight vs. Evenflow for the pride of Oklahoma....
And the Oklahoma bout didn't compare with the big Lubbock vs Stillwater battle for the middle of nowhere match up.
One fantastic quarter by USC, one pretty pathetic one. But even while the offense turns the ball over two in a row and the special teams allow a blocked punt, Notre Dame can only score 7.
USC 21, ND 10 at half time!
Well, I was at the game in Austin yesterday proudly wearing my maroon in a sea of orange alumni. I have to say the sips didn't take the loss very well at all. Bunch of bitter assholes mostly.
Oh and how bout this stat? 244 yrds rushing against the nation's #1 rush defence. Suck it whorns. Suck it long and hard and with some pop rocks maybe.
USC wins by 20 in a wild game. Couple of big plays by the Irish - especially an incredible interception by a defensive linemen and a blocked punt - make a game of it until the 4th quarter.
That's 5 straight for Carroll over Notre Dame, the only close game last year in the 'grass' game.
Replace two heisman trophy winners, send a dozen guys to the pros - and play for the national championship in your rebuilding year. WOW.
Just one more win against cross town rival UCLA - if USC takes them seriously, they should play Ohio State in the desert.
A good week.
I win The Last Word;
USC fuckin' schools those Irish cocksuckers yet again!!
Now they may get someone worth a damn.
Texas' loss was intentional long-term strategery to ensure that Texas A&M keeps their crap coach for another two years.
Yeah, Nebraska did the same thing to us.
You know, there's a reason why Texas players don't need much convincing to cross the Red River and lace up for Boomer Sooner.
Yes, it's called Big Red Sports and Imports.
Is it our fault that Texas schools can't offer recruits a nice, fully-loaded ride? No need for Texas to worry - those who are stupid enough to get caught are sent back promptly.
Between Boone's millions and free cars in Norman, will there be any players left in Texas?
I guess that'll depend on what Lubbock can offer....is Bobby Knight generous with free chokings or pick-me-up slaps?
I wonder if either OU or OSU will get a single win on the big 3 Texas teams next year. Texas is no doubt going to beat them both, and I think Tech will beat OU in Lubbock, but I'm not willing to call OSU in Stillwater just yet... and that leaves us with the wild card, A&M. How bad is Coach Fran really? If he learns from his mistakes you could see a very good A&M team. He lost 3 games, 2 of which I'd call bad coaching, one of which was just good playing... for a combined total of 6 points... Tech won by 4, Nebraska by 1, OU by 1.
OU is the most obvious example of really bad coaching. Kicking 2 field goals, one with 8 min left on the 2 yard line, one with 3:30 left and down by 4 points. No excuse for that, his fault, bad coaching. Both Tech and Nebraska won with a last minute great throw to the endzone. I believe there is a field goal play involved with both of those games too.
So the real question is, will he learn from his mistakes? There is no question that A&M is a very talented team lead by a bad coach. Their players are young too, and they will get better. They could use a better QB, so could Tech for that matter. Their Defense looked good against Texas, but not so hot early on against the weaker teams. I guess we'll see. OSU will probably lose at Kyle field, but I don't know how the Aggies will do in Norman.
I predict OSU and OU will both go 1-2 against the big 3 Texans next year. There is your wildly early prediction.
Considering OSU was a few plays away from winning four games, which could've put them in contention for the South, they could be alot better.
Stress the "could".
Isn't that always the case with OSU though?
Moreso this year than others. You can probably point to ten plays over the year which OSU fell short. They definately improved over last yeear, just wish they'd get over the hump.
OSU's offense could be damn good depending on the QB play from week to week. I actually think Texas will have trouble filling holes next year. I think they lose 3 starting offensive linemen, both starting DE's, and a couple starters in the secondary. They also lose Selvin Young and Limas Sweed. That's a lot of playmakers to replace.
By contrast, A&M loses 2 starters on Defense and 1 starter on offense.
Yeah, OSU's offense is not the problem, giving up 30+ points a game is.
OU will be interesting, as they really have no tested or highly rated QB on campus for next year, and may have to go the juco route to find someone.
Texas may lose those players but they have back ups on back ups who are good enough to step in without them missing a beat. They get half a season to prep for the games with OU and OSU, I still think they win. OU has a chance because the Cotton Bowl is hard to predict... sorry Flow, I don't see OSU suddenly beating Texas, how long has it been since you guys took them out?
1997. Thing is, if OSU had grown a pair and won those four games this year, we'd have won the South, despite losing to Texas.
Fantasy sure, but makes our place at the moment all more frustrating.
Well if Fran had a sack A&M would have won the south... Lucky for us, he doesn't.
