While he may have issued an apology for saying it, Lee Corso pretty much summarized the happenings of the weekend in his pre game sound off.
In what was supposed to be a pretty boring weekend we saw upset after upset of all the teams trying to lay claim to the #2 ranking and a trip to the national championship. Yes, it was a bad week for 1 loss teams that start with the letter O. An OT loss, a missed field goal, and a last minute TD has seemingly taken the drama out of the rest year. So much for the big OU v OSU game to end the year.
Yes, its time we sit and brace our-self. I know, I know its sucks. The SEC will win yet another championship. Yep, get ready for the influx of southerners to fannation shouting out about their conference dominance in capital letters, and spelling so poor that DJ will have to put in overtime on fannation to correct it all.
Yes, we will have another rematch of the "game-of-the-year". Maybe someone will even score a TD in regulation this time!! I did not want to see a rematch merely because i think its unfair to LSU, but at this point it seems as though their is no other choice.
So while i sit and wait for even crazier upsets that would somehow open the door for Houston, inside i know that i'm in for another SEC lovefest.
Some quick thoughts:
In a year with no runaway Heisman favorite I'd like to cast my hypothetical vote for Robert Griffin III. He's a one man show that gives a school that should have no reason to even field a team a chance against anybody.
His stat line is:
3573 yds 33 TDs 5 INT 10.63 YPA 72.9% completion
So that's more TDs, less picks, a higher completion % and about 600 more yards (on less attempts) then the highly touted Andrew Luck. He keeps plays alive and when nothing is available he can run it with the best of them.
While last night was just sheer depression for me as an OU fan, i did see one things that has me excited. It seems that OU has found yet another QB to plug into their streak of great signal callers once Jones leaves. With just 25 carries Blake Bell already has 7 rushing TDs on the year. He's being used a lot like Tebow was his first year. Coming in as an unstoppable redzone force. His Belldozer formation is not one that relies on trickery. The D even knows what is coming but with 2 fullbacks and the physical QB it has been unstoppable so far. So confident are the Sooners in their young QB and the formation that they marched him out to go for a 2 pt conversion at the end of the Baylor game to go for the win rather then the tie. ( a false start and subsequent Baylor TD drive negated the relevance)
