Of course, that was not the only news from yesterday. Oklahoma has again proven that it can take a high ranking and make voters regret the kindness. The Sooners looked awful, just terrible, against Houston. Blocking was as abysmal as tackling, two important components of football. But, the season is young, and the Sooners have many opportunities to make me scream at my television.
LSU fell flat. And looked terrible doing it, they went to the home of the Packers and got rolled by Wisconsin. Big players make big plays in big games, and what could have been bigger. The Tigers made a few small plays, lost a close one and went home.
Tonight we have Texas and Notre Dame, a match up between two teams I despise. Since Notre Dame has a special place in the hearts of millions, and a following so large it is almost unbelievable I will probably root for Texas, Hook ‘em Horns. Since I have officially doomed Texas by donning the burnt orange I expect a big thank you from Notre Dame fans (not all of them, just the fans reading this) tomorrow.
So far, I am One out of Three in games, screamed at my television, called referees terrible names, acted like a complete buffoon, and had a grand time. I can’t wait for next week.
