And what's with "the Barbarian"? He can't play in the most crucial game of the season because his little toe hurts?
I've said it before, and I'll say it again (I know I'm no expert on the subject, but it is my blog:) This team has TWO Pro-Bowlers -- Jason Whitten and DeMarcus Ware (Romo MIGHT make it as a backup).
Once again the BCS took a whippin', as No. 1 Alabama got thumped by Tim Teebo and Florida. Now I have to make a choice: Do I root for Big 12 champion OU (which is very distasteful for me) or a team I have never liked -- Florida? Right now I am leaning toward Florida. I like Teebo. I must admit: Sam Bradford seems like a classy guy, too. While I admire Bob Stoops for his coaching ability, I don't like him. I think he takes too many pot shots at Mack Brown.
Sign that things can't be too bad: People hiring airplanes to fly over arch-rivals' games towing banners. OU fans hired one to fly over Austin last week, telling Mack Brown to quit crying. I wonder if OU would have had that same attitude if the Big 12 had chosen Texas over them for the championship game? Then last weekend, a Texas fan hired a plane to fly over the Big 12 championship game with a banner that said something like, "Loser Bowl: Both teams lost to Texas."
I was hoping to see Texas play Alabama in a BCS bowl game. Again, this seems fruity to me, but why is Texas (at #3) playing a #10 ranked team, Ohio State?
COME ON, OBAMA! BRING US A PLAYOFF! High schools do it. Other divisions of the NCAA do it. America wants it!
