Texas Longhorns Got Hosed

Not by the voters or some of ENIAC’s descendants who comprise the BCS, but by their own conference, the Big XII.

How does the conference allow a tiebreaker to fall solely on the BCS with nary an objective thought to the FACT that my Horns beat Oklahoma by 10 points on a neutral field?!?

What really chaps the ol’ hide is that the Longhorns will be at home next Saturday watching the conference title game between North champ Missouri and South “champ” Oklahoma.

Two teams who, oh by the way, the Horns beat this season by a combined score of 101-67.

Un-freakin’-believable, what a conference!

Colt McCoy has Tebow’s Back

“I thank God for this opportunity…”


Those were Texas QB Colt McCoy’s (above) words before a national audience after leading his team to victory against rival Oklahoma.

Given the other worldly burden placed on Tim Tebow’s broad shoulders, perhaps Colt can help carry the burden in Simonesque fashion.

While an exhaustive and expert post-game report is sure to follow from the good folks over at Burnt Orange Nation, these are the thoughts of a random UT alum/fan watching this instant classic from the comfort of his home in Houston:

Jones AT&T Stadium at its Best

The Texas Tech Red Raiders play their unique brand of football at some joint called Jones-AT&T Stadium. The stadium recently flooded and shots were taken.

Seizing the moment, some industrious soul put his Photoshop skills to work:

The pic (from disco tech! via shaggy bevo forums) deliciously cracks on Texas’ opponents, for example:

  • The Manginokrakken about to devour Texas Tech Coach Mike Leach’s pirate ship
  • The Aggie Corps of Cadets guy who forgot that Martika wrote a song about him.
  • Not sure who the flummoxed Aggie with the backward hat is, but the fact that he’s sporting his lid like that is funny enough, as for the bewilderment, that’s par for the course.
  • The Aggie (mid right) who thought that his truck was U-571, straight board shut!
  • Of course the Katrina looter, rocking a skullet of all things, with a Heineken in his back pocket making his alma mater proud is priceless, but…
  • Not nearly as priceless as Big Game (so-called) Bob Stoops about to eat his visor
  • Last, but certainly not least is the standard bearer for this masterpiece, the OU crying kid

And who says we’re not using technology to worthwhile ends?
