That was a scary opener for Texas. But Texas never looked scared. That’s my takeaway from Sark’s debut in Austin. The ‘Horns looked prepared, composed, alert, confident and eager—adjectives seldom used to describe Texas football in recent years.
Louisiana is good, maybe very good. And the Cajuns got their Ragin’s removed in a surgical operation.
Arkansas is next for Texas. The Hogs have some legit SEC athletes, as my Rice Owls found out in the second half Saturday in Fayetteville. Texas-Arkansas wakes up some fun echoes for us old dudes.
Who’s more fun than the Roadrunners? Nobody. UTSA gets an opening road win over Big Ten opponent Illinois, one week after the Illini had handled Nebraska. (Not that handling Nebraska is a big deal anymore.) ‘Runners popped a cork in Champaign.
That didn’t really happen, did it, Huskies? Montana? Yeah, that’ll happen every 101 years, or so.
And that should not have happened, Badgers. Wisconsin dominated the first half at home against Penn State, but couldn’t score. Yeah, you know what generally happens then, and it did.
Receivers running free, bombs raining down from above. New quarterback, same old ‘Bama. The Tide is still in a league of its own. That pisses a lot of you off, doesn’t it?
Au Jus almost got dipped by Tulane. That was a manly comeback by the Green Wave, but a scenario that should genuinely concern Sooner fans. That was No Boomer. And No Bueno.
Comeback completed by Mississippi State. Leach was so dazzled he was even more unintelligible than usual. “Dental appointment”? Whaa?
‘Dogs hunkered down. And Clemson could not score a touchdown? That’s a Dabo Downer.
Really solid wins for both Kansas State (over Stanford) and Iowa (Indiana).
Maybe you were surprised by UCLA’s win over Ellessshyoo. I wasn’t. Yes, I did get at least one pick right yesterday.
Tonight? Would it be possible for Notre Dame and Florida State to both lose?
Saturday was glorious. And next week will be even glorious-er when we add the NFL to the banquet.
Brady had COVID last February? Hoonoo?
