The day after the night before
We got to bed so late last night. We just couldn't quit reading stories about the game and looking at photos. Considering I barely slept on Friday night, and woke up before the alarm even went off so we could watch GameDay, I am just wiped now. I didn't even catch kickoff in the Bucs game today (which we currently lead 10-0). I realize they're paying tribute to their roots and all, but could Cleveland have uglier uniforms? Shit brown AND orange. What a lovely combo... Reminds me of a late 70s kitchen gone bad.

I was too hyped up to really discuss my feelings surrounding the game last night, but a post on SoonerFans.com finally made the emotion pour out. So if you'll please indulge me this one last entry about the OU/tx series.

As expected, a lot of the 'whorn fans are in denial today -- it ain't just a river in Egypt. On one of their message boards it reads:

"We are a much better football team than OU. We have the best set of wide receivers in the nation...If Chris just throws it away from the defensive back, it was a sure 6, instead we have to listen to the announcers on how great of a play the defensive back made...So many 3 and outs in the second half killed us. They got the lucky bounce at the goal line and we were done. I really wish Chris would have taken this team on his shoulders and drove them down the field, so once and for all he could have proved his greatness to his naysayers...We win next week, and I think we still win the Big XII South, and still have a chance to play for an National Championship. OU is not that great of a team and they will lose before it is all over. Hopefully twice."

Well I've got news for you texass. We beat you 63-14 in 2000 with a bunch of scrappers left over from the John Blake era. That was "a fluke". Couldn't happen again. Then we beat you 14-3 in 2001. The wind was tricky. You ran out of time. It was another fluke. So yesterday, on a day when our QB played like shit, threw four picks (when he hadn't thrown a single one all season long), and by his own admission "our team won in spite of my performance" -- did your pretty boy QB suck it up and play his best game on the day that was heralded as his chance to finally prove himself in just about every print and television media outlet in the nation? No. He also threw three picks and not a single touchdown. Not a single touchdown against top 10 teams in his entire career I might add -- but also threw for something like thirteen picks total in those same games. If your players are always so much better, then why is it that our players always seem to beat you these days?

There will never be a fucking year when you give OU credit. Ever. It's never about why we won, but instead why you lost. You want to live in your own little dream world that you are sooooo much better than we are by clinging to stats from the early 1900s. Well you know what? You go right ahead and live in glorious black and white. I'll take our seven national championships to your two (both of which were earned before I was even born). I'll take the colorful images of Bob Stoops holding up the Sears trophy in Miami in 2000, and the feeling of walking on air as we exited the Orange Bowl. And I'll take the image of the fake Roy Williams crying on the sidelines after the Big XII Championship last year when we literally handed you a ticket to Pasadena as an early Christmas gift, and you couldn't even unwrap it. No team is EVER "that good" to you. Did you ever stop to think that once, just maybe, YOU are the ones that suck? Because if you'll drain that piss and vinegar out of your eardrums you might just hear the sound of the rest of the country laughing at you.

You know what? OU just might lose this season. There are a couple of games already where I had just about given up on getting the "W". And we've got Iowa State in six more days. But at least our coach has the CLASS to admit, "We were outplayed and I was outcoached," after our losses. This year yours blames the wind (once again) in the third quarter, and receivers running the wrong routes. Well you know what? Our players were in that VERY SAME wind in the fourth quarter when we scored the majority of our points. Our QB's performance left little to be desired, and we had several dropped balls in the first half. But...oh yeah...we don't have to make excuses. We...won. Enjoy your back-to-back recruiting national championships. And that series record. I'll take my dominance in the here and now, thankyouverymuch.

The above entry was written by a girl -- who seems to have more fire in her belly than the entire 'whorn O-line and coaching staff combined.

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

I was JUST saying the same thing to Wills about those ugly ass uniforms!! Congrats to you your team yesterday!! Whoooo!

*snicker* We just realized texass is tied with Baylor (and A&M and Tech) for second in the Big XII south right now.

As a certified Coon-Ass (Go LSU!), I am required by law to hate all things texan. I love that the best thing Chris could say about his team was that *IF* the Sooners lose 2 games they have a chance at the Championship. I wanna be there to see him squirt tears when he gets told OU has to lose *3* games. Two losses would result in a tie and the tie-breaker would be that OU beat them.
On another note, though I am not an OU fan, all the talk about the game made me tune in to watch. They have crimson, they have cannons. This Bucs fan could get to like them Sooners!

What in the heck is a "back-to-back recruiting national championships"

When did that stat count?

That's why Mack has the nickname "Mr. February". He can't win the big one in January, so he clings to signing day in February instead. ;-)

Although, Mack's nickname finally changed to "Coach Takeaknee" this weekend.

Now don't go bashing Clevelands uniforms!! We've always worn brown and orange! (weeelll, maybe not so *much* orange) They *are* the *Browns* afterall!
