Sorry for ya.
I did and saw a lot of things this past weekend, but none are more important than the fact that Oklahoma spilled burnt orange blood all over the Cotton Bowl Saturday afternoon.
It was beautiful.
I’m of the firm belief that no one win is ever better than a National Title, but since Bob Stoops doesn’t seem to be about winning championships, you have to take what you can get.
We beat them so badly that they dropped off the rankings completely, when they had previously been holding the #15 slot. (Okay, I lied, just saw the BCS rankings were out and they’re ranked 25 – but still.)
It was nothing short of magical.
We have a tough season ahead of of us, still facing Notre Dame, WVU and TCU – all ranked teams while managing not to shoot ourselves in the foot during other “easier” games – something we’re very well known for doing.
I contend that the Big XII is a tougher conference than the SEC this year. Let’s see the old Crimson Tide stay undefeated after having to play Kansas State, West Virginia and Oklahoma. I don’t know that they could do it.
The Big Ten is practically irrelevant right now and the Pac 10 can suck it.
So yeah, I’m not sure where I was going with that other than BOOMER SOONER.
I’m not even going to feed into the talk about us being “back in the conversation” or discuss people’s ill-placed hatred in Landry Jones (let’s remember how our quarterbacks are chosen, people).
I’m just going to enjoy the look on Mackie’s face a little while longer.
Even on a morning where I realized I lost my (third) metro card and my briefcase broke in the middle of my speed walk to work – my joy will not be stolen from me.
Even though the Nats totally blew a 6-0 lead to lose their first showing in the playoffs since the 30s – my mood will not be broken.
Did I mention Boomer Sooner?
Oh and hey, good on the Redskins too.
