Good Riddance

Well, there you go. Texas owns Nebraska. . they absolutely own us. There is something cosmic going on that Nebraska will not beat Texas (when it matters). We just won't. How else do you explain 4 dropped touchdown passes? Congrats to the Longhorns, you own Nebraska.

Good Riddance, Bevo. I hope to never see the orange and cream in Memorial Stadium again. I can't wait to move to the Big 10.

But, hey, . . . Nebraska didn't show up. We played awful. Let's see how Coach Pelini and co. can deal with being the hunted, with being the top dog. He's great at "us against the world". . . let's do some work on "the world is coming for us". I think we'll rebound well from this.

Ah, what a terrible game.

I thought shooting ourselves in the foot was so last year...but alas.

Yeah, it was a bummer. But, there are just teams that have your number, and for us, it's Texas.

The funny thing is. . that game really didn't mean a whole lot in the big picture. We need to win the next two, and we're still set up well for the north title and that's all you can ask for.

I was really happy to not be leading worship in Nebraska last Sunday. . . :) oh man, I remember those days.

Texas in the 1990s and 200s was our "sooner magic" and our Oklahoma of the 70's and 80's.

Average margin of victory = 4 points and losing to them every way possible. A game clinching first down if our guys just falls down, but instead fumbles. Time back on the clock. 4 dropped TD passes. The whole team gets the flu. A crazy rollout pass on 4th and inches that nobody ever runs...

And in all that own-age Texas has over Nebraska, we still have 5 titles over the last 40 years to their 2.

Mac Brown has all teh advantages. Money, facilities, fertile recruiting, and it takes a once-in-a-generation guy like Vince Young to get him a ring.
