JULIA--- PLEASE--PLEASE ROOT FOR OKLAHOMA THIS WEEKEND-MISSOURI DOESN'T HAVE A SNOWBALL'S CHANCE IN H%#$ OF BEATING OKLAHOMA WITHOUT YOUR HELP AND DESPITE YOUR MAGICAL POWERS WE MAY NOT HAVE MUCH A CHANCE WITH THEM! BESIDES YOU OWE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MIZZOU FANS AFTER WHAT YOU DID LAST WEEK!!! earl
Well Earl, I could do this on ONE condition! Herby has to be NICE to me until Sunday!! See if you can work this out!
Very good post, Earl! Ol' Herb will like that one.
Hmmmmmmm....Lets see, today is Thursday, and I have to be nice to her clear through Sunday???? I don't think I can do that. Lets negotiate. I'll be nice to her every night till Sunday between the hours of midnight and 6am. Thats my best offer. Even a Mizzou win can't be worth much more than that.
If you won't do it for Herb and Earl, would you consider doing it for your ole pal, Kimberly??? There is no way I want Oklahoma to win against Missouri after they so unfairly got there in the first place! Plus, if OU loses (and depending on how AL prevails over FL) then my team, the will still have a shot and let's face it, TEXAS DESERVES IT!!! (Shay...don't you agree????) TEXAS LONGHORNS So....please root for Missouri!!! PPUUULLLLEEEEEEAAAASSSEEEE??????????? Kimberly
Rarely do I like to side with an enemy combatant, especially one from the same comference, but in this case I will. Just for you and Shay. (you know she's a redhead ) My weakness shows through. Oklahoma is similar to Ohio St....they've been there and failed. Give Texas a shot. They won last time they were in the National Championship game. Anything for the Big 12. I'm a team player.
Herby, the only way I wlll agree to this condition is if you leave your phone on so I can call you anytime I want between midnight and 6 am!!!
My phone is always on. It's just never in my bedroom. It stays in the office from midight till dawn.
Ok you leave me no choice, I'll just drive to Kirksville so I can keep waking you up! Remember you have to be NICE to me
Don't tell Herby because I'm still trying to work out a deal with him to be nice to me....but for my pal Kimberly I'll do what I can to help you out!!
Herb, it's not a rotating crown where everybody gets a chance. This isn't the Miss Adair County Pageant. What a team did in the past shouldn't even be a consideration. None of the current Oklahoma players were even on the roster the last time they were in a championship game. The New York Football Giants have lost 12 NFL championship games. By your logic, they should be banned from the Super Bowl. Give the Lions a shot. They were tough back in the '50's.
Texas is getting the shaft, but so are Texas Tech, Penn State, USC, Utah, Boise State, Ball State, and michigan (3-9). Besides, Texas shouldn't be in the national championship game because they lost the Cotton Bowl to 49 years ago! Syracuse
Glk, your logic overwhelms me. I think your choices are skewed because of the recent failures of THE Ohio St. Unlike the Adair Co. Beauty Pageant, (which by the way brings in new contestants each year) the BCS seems to always favor incumbents, or teams that are around the top year in and year out. Lets have some new blood. How about Alabama and Texas. There are only 4 teams to pick from...Alabama, Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas. The rest either play in a VERY weak conference, or schedule too many creampuffs. GLK...If you want to get to the top, you have to earn it. No free cheese here. Neither PSU or OSU or USC have earned that right. Utah and Boise St. are undefeated for a reason, but are good teams. Now that Oregon St lost, I'm thinking both Utah and Boise St. have a good chance to get in. Neither Boise or Ohio St have another game left to improve their standings....so if things stay the way are now, Boise is in, and Ohio St is Capitol One Bowl bound. Texas Tech played too weak of a non conference record, and got blowed out in Norman. If they had been competitive in that game, they would have an arguement..albeit slim. No playoffs this year, so we have to dance with the girl that brung ya.
The Ol' Dawg
Yep, I'm with Kimberly! I believe Santa can make it all okay if only that "SOONER out of the #1 spot the better" team is kicked to the curb!! Thank you my December birthday compadre, Bandito! Hook 'em Horns! Shay
This is more fun to read than any football game is to watch.
