Neil Young sucks almost as much as OU


I can get behind the first part of this.

OU is very different from USC, but I'm not convinced at this point they are better.  That was a great, great, performance by the Texas defense.  Yeah, "Not great, Bob" for the O, but I believe the season will vindicate my idea that SC is also one of the best defenses in the country.  Ehlinger is probably the QB now, I'd think.  That kid is gonna be a very good player and win a lot of games at UT.  

I'm feeling better and better about my predictions for Herman at UT.  The improvements from week 1 to week 3 are tangible and glaring.  

I'm not generally one for moral victories, but if there is such a thing as a good loss, that was it.  
Your analysis is suspect, because you also said this:
Quote
This might be a good gauge of how much true progress UT made from week 1 and week 2, and how much was the quality of opponent.  USC looked frighteningly good by the end of the Stanford game.  Not that they demolished them or anything.  But they were consistently and appreciably better, and I think Stanford is a legitimately good team.  

I'm not convinced SC didn't register the actual best win last weekend, despite OU/OSU making all the news.  SC looked as good as I've seen a team look this season.  Texas has their work cut out for them to beat the spread.  I'd be fairly shocked if they pull the upset.
And it seems that, rather than recognizing that you overvalued USC, you are doubling down.

Keep working on it.  No need to throw out the possum with the bath water.

Bevo got no balls, yo... bad choice of representation by my reckoning.
Seriously?  Do you even know what a mascot is?

Are Albert E and Alberta real alligators?

Do you think the little bitty Sooner Schooner is a full scale representation of what covered wagons used in the Land Rush actually looked like?

Do you imagine that the dude who dresses up as the West Virginia Mountaineer actually carries a rifle loaded with black powder AND ammunition?

Do you imagine that the Trojans who USC pay homage to all carried plastic swords in real life?

Bevo's a mascot like Orbit or Hookem.  A mascot is merely a symbol.  

In the case of Bevo, he may just be a steer but he represents a breed.  

The breed is tough, hardy and indigenous to Texas.  It can prevail in extreme heat, in barren, drought stricken lands.  It's an amazing creature and a wonderful symbol for Texas, whose earliest settlers also endured a harsh and hostile environment.

Ever been around cattle?   The docile nature you see from a distance belies a danger that comes from their enormous weight and light-footed lateral quickness in small places.  Bulls possess power and ferocity.   You know the running of the bulls in Spain that has killed a couple of dozen people over the years?  That breed of bull was part of the ancestral makeup of the longhorn.  Ever seen a longhorn up close?  Those horns can run 7 feet from tip to tip.

Ever google death by longhorn or people killed by longhorns.  Yeah, despite people pretty much leaving them the hell alone and giving them vast acreage to themselves, longhorns still manage to kill a person every few years, by goring them or trampling them.

Longhorns are not be trifled with.  Bevo has to be snipped and drugged.  It's the only responsible thing to do.  Can you imagine the havoc a full-sized longhorn bull would wreak in a stadium of 100,000 people?

MarqHusker?  CWSooner?

I wish this were a bar instead a board.  I'd buy a round.

Speaking of Longhorns and goring, several years ago some kids were running around on the Texas Tech campus in the middle of the night.  One kid ran smack straight into a Longhorn statue and was gored to death.

So even the statues are fearsome.

What seems to be missing from this allegedly male dog?   Are we to assume that the entire purpose of this mascot is to point out that the state of Tennessee and the people there in are emasculated?   Are we to grin and giggle and act like school children because of this shocking discovery?

Sheesh.

Could've had a dog with testicles.  It's not like you have to worry about bluetick coonhound trampling and goring people.  

I guess being neutered just better represents Tennessee.

Well maybe not, but we are quite good at it.
