I feel like Al in Happy Days..."Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"... The minute White went down with his knee, I just knew. I felt like I'd been sucker-punched on the chin and kicked in the gut at the very same time. But no excuses here. The team that played the best walked off the field in Lincoln with a "W" today -- and the Sooners got lovely parting gifts which included a year's supply of schooner wax, and a raffle ticket for a chance to meet up with the Huskers again in the Big XII Championship in Dallas. If it didn't hurt they wouldn't call it "losing", I guess. Ob la di, ob la da, life goes on bra, la la how the life goes on... At least we have a birthday party tonight! Boomer Sooner!
When the final seconds ticked down, I actually got tears in my eyes. True, Nebraska did play the better game, and it DID come down to the quarterback situation. We'll meet them again in December (if White comes back), and thank goodness for the Big XII championship now!
