Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not; and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.
Henry David Thoreau (1817 - 1862)

For all you doubters...
and if, like me, you didn't get enough the first time...
Now that that's over, let it be said that, though i am happy we are going to the BIG XII Championship next week in Kansas City, to clean up a little mess of a team who won the yankee portion of the conference...i want you all to know, i am NOT in agreement with the HOW we got there. I think football should be decided on the field, by coaches with headphones...not pencils on a poll sheet, not by voters, and certainly not by computers. Yes, we beat Texas Tech, convincingly, yes they beat Texas by a slim margin, but the wrench that stops the cog in my football engine is that Texas did, in fact, beat Oklahoma on a neutral field, by a 10 point margin. Texas then, by a head to head standard, should get the nod to play in the CCG...end of story. Unfortunately, its not the end of the story. Of course, those of you who may have the unfortunate position of BEING a T-sip...you actually do still have a chance...providing you put your chips on a bunch of ragamuffins and one crybaby from Mizzou...if they pull it off, you're back in the hunt. But for now, its the Sooner Show once again, and as much as you may hate it...SOONER MAGIC is real...believe it!
