But it was Oklahoma, 60+, Missouri 20-something. I really knew better than to expect the pussies to recover from losing to KU and be able to beat the team that whouldn't have even been in the Big 12 Championship Game (one must assume a fair number of voters intha various polls must have been from Oklahoma or some other state where reality doesn't apply, or else the fact that Texas, with the same record as Oklahoma, who defeated OU on a neutral field, would have influenced them). So now I'm going to haeve to listen to the trash talk between the transplanted Gator and the vertically-challenged Sooner for weeks on end. At least I'm not in Colombus to deal with one end of this blather live.

. . . this one was about 3˚ Kelvin.

KU 76, Nebraska 39.

My family moved to Lawrence in 1968. They got me the special kid ticked pack for both football and basketball, and I went to all the games I could. In 1968, KU was the Big 8 champ, and went to the Orange Bowl, where they lost 15-14 to Penn State on a penalty for 12 men on the field. They were never Big 8 or, after the merger, Big 12 champs again. Often they were mediocre, and for a decade or so they were horrible (though not as bad as Kansas State at that time). Nebraska, of course, was a national powerhouse, and regularly thrashed the Jayhawks by scores like 70-0, 59-2 and the like. So, yeah, two beatdowns of Nebraska in three years feels pretty good. Next Oklahoma State, and then we can worry about the Border War.

Additionally today, Iowa State, the North Division's doormat, beat K-State. If Oklahoma State beats Texas, the Big 12 will officially be renamed the WTF? Conference.

Rock Chalk!

Tonight, off to see the St. Andrew's Pipe Band and the Elders. Sunday, the Chefs vs. Green Bay and Satan's Football Coach vs. Jesus's BFF (New England vs. Indianapolis, in mundane terms). I, of course, will be cheering for Satan.
