High Stress Level
What a day for college football!  

I really can't believe A&M played such a crappy game.  Thankfully the wrecking crew showed up at the very last second to save the game.  I really hate and love games like the one tonight.   It is great football and even better when your team actually wins.  I'm really looking forward to the rest of the season.  I'm just bummed that I'm going to miss the next 2 games.  I'm going on vacation, hopefully I'll be able to find an internet cafe to check the scores.

Current Mood: happy

Bevo.

It's what's for dinner.

To quote (I believe) an OU fan from this comm a few years ago.

=D

Happy Texas Lost Day.

Are you ready for some Big 12 football!?!? I can't wait for it to start. I am also anxious to see how everything plays out. It is looking like a tough year for all of us because there are a lot of teams that look to be pretty good. I just am going to die when I sit down to watch the first game being played! Also, I want to see how my longhorns fair as well.

Current Mood: excited

I still fly my Crimson and Cream with pride.
So with the news coming out of Norman I am shocked and proud of what happend for many reasons. Its not news to me that something like this happens, I am sure things like this happen all over but are never reported till after the season is well over. I still wonder why the car dealership did this? They were under review last year with a car and a player so why risk it? Well they are a dealership what do they have to lose? I hope that OU decides to stop doing buisness with them and picks another dealership.

I also wonder how this came to the attention of OU?  I am very very happy at the action OU took on this, not the NCAA but the school itself dismissed the starting QB, now that takes balls.And makes me proud that they are trying to run a clean system.

Then again I remember the Switzer days and this is nothing.

Are you ready for some football?
Lord knows I am I just got NCAA Football 07 from Gamefly and man I love it. And this brings me to my post, I was wondering if any of you would like to set up a Big 12 tourney on XBOX so play some time? Maybe set up a few so we can all play as our favorite team?

Wow.
Think the Big 12 earned a little respect this bowl season?

We went 5-3....we took two of the Pac-10 teams to town, plus a Big 10 team and a SEC team. We topped the "unbeatable" (pfft) USC Trojans and Texas took home the crystal football, snapping the Trojan's 34-game winning streak.

Guess we're not such a POWDER-PUFF conference anymore, are we :cough: ESPN :cough: BCS :cough: ABC?

Orange Bowl
I love watching all these bowl games, but I know I'm getting old. Penn State is about to give me a heart attack!

Colorado hires former Boise State head coach Dan Hawkins.

Thoughts?

(Sorry if this has been posted here already; I didn't really check.)

New name emerges in K-State's search for a new coach
Virginia offensive coordinator Ron Prince has emerged as a leading candidate to be the next football coach at Kansas State.

Rest of the article...Collapse )

In other words, Patterson from TCU is out, Leavitt from South Florida is out, and Venables from OU is out. Those were the original top three.

I'm surprised at Bennett possibly coming from SMU.

I've also heard that all of the assistant coaches at K-State were asked to clean out their desks/lockers. Good riddance. There's about 3 of them that I would actually keep, the rest of them need to go.

What does everyone else think?

Pondering Ponticifation
1) I read that the Big XII is the second best conference in the country. Is that true?

2) Who should win coach of the year?

3) Which is a bigger accomplishment - Baylor winning 5 games, Texas finally beating Oklahoma, more North teams going to bowls than the South?

4) What must Colorado do to beat Texas?

5) Who is the surprise Big XII team of next year?

6) Who will win the conference next year?

Colorado
Am I the only one who would have been seriously EMBARRASSED to be a Colorado fan today?

First, Gary Barnett makes a complete ass out of himself during the post-first half interview (he said that Nebraska was cheating by going no-huddle...wtf?)...then two entire sections of the student section were forced to leave after they started throwing things on the field!

In my opinion, Barnett has never showed any class in his comments or the way that he coaches and now, I have completely lost all respect for him.

Anyone catch the Nebraska vs Colorado game?

I was VERY impressed with Nebraska today. That's the team I've been waiting for the past couple of years and they finally shined through. I'm really hoping that this wasn't a fluke and they continue to play like that.

It'll be interesting to see if any charges are made to any of the fans. I thought that was classless and crazy. I can't believe people actually act like that.

Any thoughts?

OU / T-Tech
It was a bad call.

Great game other than the very questionable officiating (the spot on that first down, the attempt to give a TD on an obvious incompletion, the winning TD, just to name a few on the last drive). Does this lock up the Cotton Bowl for Tech, sending the Sooners to the Alamo or Holiday Bowl? Does A&M have a chance today? Who wins the pillow fight in Waco?

Questions of the week
1) Besides Texas, Colorado and Texas Tech, which other five teams are bowl bound? Or will at least one of the Big XII's eight bowl tie-ins go to someone else?

2) Which do you think is the game of the week - Oklahoma v. Texas A&M, Texas v. Kansas, Baylor v. Missouri, Kansas State v. Nebraska or Colorado v. Iowa State?

3) What's going to be the closest game of the week?

4) Who's going to win that shouldn't?

5) Which team has the biggest shock?

I would like to welcome OU to the top 25 in the BCS. We've also recieved some votes in the AP and Coaches' polls. We just need to run the table to get into the Cotton Bowl, I think, though the Holiday or Alamo Bowls would be nice as well. A&M and Tech are both talented squads and OSU is always fired up to play OU. How do you guys see the rest of the Sooner season going, including bowls?
