OU Football: Challenge Accepted

College football needs a little anarchy, a little chaos. The SEC will bludgeon itself to death as upstarts challenge the baseball scoring efficiency of LSU and the early season “Who have we played?,” Crimson Tide. Sooner rather than later the Big 12 will emerge with at least one if not three candidates for the National Title race. Everyone in Ohio will be left saying, “If only we were not on probation.”

Rick Davis threw the gauntlet my way. We both favor teams in the Big 12. The Longhorns, Davis’ franchise of choice, appear resurgent after Mack Brown finally settled on a quarterback to rise from the Ash(es) of the past two seasons. The Sooners bobbled in Norman to the team now ranked in the top 10. After the Manhattan Project startled Mike Stoops, the Sooners took the number 1 defense in the Country to the woodshed and knocked Texas Tech out of the top 25.

What more fun could two friends have than wish for a little anarchy in college football? Maybe Davis will become a Chaositist and come up with a new neologism. That will be better than bloviating about how good Bevo is on the field. We will know how good he tastes come Saturday afternoon.

I take the challenged tossed out by Gandalf, my mentor. I will begrudgingly post a positive picture of Bevo should the Orange from the South defeat the Crimson and Cream from the North. Since Texans believes the Red River is the Mason Dixon line, we will call it a friendly Civil War. But, if, and they will, the Sooners win – unless of course Lee Corso chooses OU to win then I may call King’s X and consider all bets off – Rick will wear the Crimson and Cream on his blog for the next week.

I suspect he will engage here, there, and yon, but you can be sure this will not be like nuking a playground.

Let’s see what happens in the Cotton Bowl my friend.

  1. Rick Davis says:

    Glad to see you are responsive. Poor, old Sooner Schooner will be involved in a recall action this week, as sure as Mack Brown brings in a lot of money.

    You Okies be sure to buy several State Fair Corny Dogs while you are here, since you will not be eating beef this year.


    1. As responsive as the Stoops boys will be to all the cajoling that they cannot win the big one. The South (UT) will not rise this year. Mack’s money has proven only that he knows not how to spend it.

      You may be sure fans will fill the Fair and the stadium and the Schooner will carry off those longhorn burgers right up I-35.
