Off Week

So, it's an off week...what do we do during an off week??

Well...I'm going out of town. It'll be a nice escape from Tulsa for a couple of days, of course I will miss watching the Sooners on Saturday, it just doesn't feel like a Saturday when they have an off week. There are a lot of football games to watch, but nobody matches up to watching the Sooners.

Okay, so who do we root for this weekend?? UGH... the dreaded BCS probably doesn't put us in the Championship game this year unless some seriously strange stuff happens.

The BC vs VT game is on tonight, while I was hoping for a BC loss a couple of weeks ago, it doesn't really matter anymore. If VT wins, they will probably jump ahead of us in the BCS.

We need Ohio State to loss to Penn State (go LIONS!), Cal could be Arizona State, Oregon needs to lose at some point, but I don't really see that happening. I'm getting exhausted.

Seriously, we need a playoff in college football. I really like the Bowl games we have now, but a playoff is going to be the only way that it is completely fair, I hate to say it!

Scare in Ames

Okay, see if I say anything bad about any teams that we are playing ever again. Anytime I do, it has bad results.

We survived Iowa State in Ames on Saturday. That was a tough game to watch. I was very aggravated. We saved a touchdown in the end zone by intercepting the ball. It looked for a second like Wolfe had tipped the pass right into the ISU receivers hands. That was a scary moment.

Thankfully he didn't and we were able to pull out the win in the end.

We are still in the race for the BCS and if we continue to win, we could be in control. We still need some people to lose and I think that will happen.

LSU almost lost last night...but they didn't. I was sure they would lose that game, then Auburn handed the game to them with an onside kick ?? Strange call, they were up and just had to play some defense to get the clock to run out. Instead LSU recovers and after getting a little closer in the next couple of plays, they kick a field goal for the win. Thanks, Tommy! Preciate that!

I'm B-A-A-ACK!

Okay, boys and girls, I know it has been a LOOOONG time since I last posted, but.... I've been busy. Okay, I know you all know that's not true, I've actually just been lazy. So, I'm going to try to start posting on a semi-regular basis again. We'll see how that goes.

So much has happened since I last posted. I can't possibly cover it all! So, I'll sum-up. OU started off the football season awesome! We have a new red-shirt freshman quarterback Sam Bradford who has exceeded expectations. We were hangin' half a hundred on teams easily!

Then we went to Colorado. Ooops, I think we forgot about that altitude. We got beat. It was depressing, it was downright sad.

But, all is good in the college football world. Actually, all is very strange this year. One glance at the top 10 will tell you that. Everyone seems to be losing. Except Boston College, Hawaii, etc. Strange. So, we're still in it.

We came back swinging the next week at Texas and impressed again Saturday against Mizzou.

So, that's the "sum-up". This week we are headed to Ames, IA to play the powerhouse that is Iowa State.

Since South Florida got beat last night by Rutgers (I honestly never imagined myself saying that) (and further, I REALLY never imagined myself watching a USF Rutgers matchup on TV, but this is a different kind of season to say the least!) we should move up in the rankings. Boston College will go down next week to West Virginia (hopefully) which will help. And as bad as it hurts to say it, Michigan needs to beat Ohio State Nov 17th. Actually, I would rather the Nittany lions beat them next weekend, but that's probably a long shot. LSU can still stand to lose again too. They will have to play in the SEC Championship game. Who's going to beat them?? Not sure, but they need to get beat again.

Have you ever read a story or seen something on TV that just sticks with you? You know, a story that has such an impression on you that you just can't get it out of your mind??

That's how I feel about this story. I read it this morning and it's affected my whole day.

I only wish that I could do something for this kid. It's a sad story. It makes me sad that a kid with such a promising future could lose it all in a matter of one night, one mistake.

Then I think about a kid that had a chance to get a college education. Possibly an ivy league education and now he's mingling with muders and true criminals.

Very sad

More on AD

I read a really great article on AD and his impact on OU football and those that he plays with. I had to post it.

Blogger has been sucking yesterday and this morning. I wasn't able to get this post out, and it wouldn't let me publish the youtube on the last post. So, here it is.

YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

Goodbye & Good Luck

Well, the decision has been made. I can't say that I'm surprised, but I'm sad. I will definitely miss watching AD on Saturdays. But, I know that he will be amazing on Sundays. I have never watched a running back like AD before, and I may never again. He is simply amazing. There is not much I can say about him, his abilities say it all. I know he has an amazing career ahead of him.

I'm not sure I did it right, but I tried to attach a youtube video of AD, it makes me kind of sad to watch it, because I know I won't ever watch him in a Sooner uniform again. But, I'm thrilled that I had the chance to watch him. The video is done by someone who believes he is going to be drafted by the Browns, which is possible. The other strong possibility is for him to go to Houston. What I can say is he will truly be missed in Norman.
