There's a football game on television tonight featuring the Texas Longhorns and the Colorado Buffaloes.  Texas leads 14-0 early in the 2nd quarter.

Anyone watching?

I've been watching it off and on.  Was that Casey Thompson who QB'd the Horns on the TD drive to open the 2nd half?

Reports say that Sam Ehlinger had a shoulder injury in first half

That's always a risk for a QB who plays like a fullback at times.  I wonder how/if that will affect his decision on whether to come back for another year.

Congrats on the nice win, BTW.

My thoughts on the Alamo Bowl

Not sure just how good Casey Thompson is because the Colorado def was not very good against the pass but his passes were sharp and on the money.  He is faster then Sam but is more of a pocket QB

I thought the Horn def played pretty good considering how many key players were missing

I didnt realize just how good Dicker was at punting.  He routinely punted over 50 yards with a long hang time.  He definitely will be playing on Sundays either kicking FGs or punting.

The line for the Cotton Bowl has gone from OU+3 to OU-11.5.  That worries me.

I was worried--before a bunch of Gators dropped out for various reasons--that Florida might just kick our asses.

Now I'm worried about the Sooners being overconfident.

We'll see in a few hours.

31-13 at halftime.  Florida hasn't gotten all the points that its offensive production should have produced.  OU's defense has had something to do with that, though.

I think I heard Sooner fans chanting "S-E-C!"

The Gator LB who opined that OU wasn't elite like the SEC and the Gators got some Sooners fired up.

It's usually best not to offer opinions like that.

Texas basically played themselves out of excuses. I don't want to give the Buffs too much credit, but the players filling spots on the roster, notably the OL, for Texas demonstrated they're not helpless. My actual opinion of their performance is somewhere between "very good" and "why haven't they been playing all season?".

Clearly, there's a set of tools in the drawer that any program would be excited over.

Once again, the SEC is in "well, um, we didn't really wanna...you see, the players were disappointed...they could have.." mode. Alabama is setting the pace, and the rest are just swimming in their pool. We were robbed of even mediocre OOC games this season, so these modified bowls are all we have. The Sooners were in a dogfight to the top of the Big 12, then threw the SEC #2 aside in the first 10 minutes.

Looking forward to seeing ISU in action!
