The only two things in life that make it worth livin'
Is guitars that tune good and firm feelin' women
Speaking of cover tunes earlier, Waylon did a fantastic remake of Can't You See (What That Woman Is Doing To Me)
I think Waylon's version went way higher up the charts than the original.  (Marshall Tucker Band)

I don't know much about the Boren situation.  If any of our resident Sooners have some info on what that's all about, I'm all ears.

All I know is the publicly available information.  He is retiring at the end of the school year in June 2018.
He, Joe Castiglione, and Bob Stoops were very close.  Bob Stoops had a clause in his contract that he could take another job penalty free if Boren left.  Makes me wonder if Bob's retirement had an affect on Boren's desire to stay.
Boren is 76 years old so retirement sounds like a good idea to me.

I reckon the game against Baylor worked out pretty well.  BU looked better than predicted, and could have easily won that thing, and OU looked worse than predicted, but kept their heads, and eventually still came out on top.  And it was a road game, so that makes it more excusable regarding the playoff folks when they look back on this Sept game against a fairly weak (at least it appears but who knows) conference foe.

So, now the coaches and players have a week to assess what went wrong, and what could be tweaked, and then a game against ISU at home before hitting the real white water in the schedule, starting with Texas.

Of course, as any Pokes fan would be the first to tell us, no one should over look Iowa State.  Provided OU can get ahead of them early and stay there, though, it will be a good chance to get things tuned up before heading into the depths of hell, south of the Red.

Marshall Tucker Band - good stuff.  I saw them in Tulsa back in the mid 1970s, one of my earliest concerts.  Classic.  It's fine for WJ to do a copy-cat version, but nothing beats the original.

Way to go Sooners!  That’s 5-0 sweep this year over Texas teams.  

Funny how OU had it easier over highly ranked TCU than they did vs Texas.  Guess that’s just the rivalry factor.  

But seriously that’s a pretty good Horned Frog outfit and OU really rolled through them.

On to Kansas!  Let’s not have upsets guys.
