Given that I live in Texas, I went to school there for a few years, and the Huskers are off to a mediocre start at best, I believe I'll start cheering for Texas. Hook 'em. ;\)

My God, that'd be like me cheering for the poodle (carroll) and USC. Yuck!

Go Horns! Looks like David's Cowboys completely knocked the Tigers off their game last week (so badly that they're still suffering today).

They looked pretty flat against TX today... either that, or TX was playing out of their minds good. Colt McCoy was definitely at the top of his game... fun game to watch.

You guys gave them a heck of a run. I thought you were going to pull it off for a while. Definitely a good game.

And my Huskers managed to beat Baylor today too while I was attending in person. Definitely a fun Saturday!

Yeah, I was a little bummed that we lost- but hey it went down to the last play and the last few seconds of the game! (even if it was a hail-mary attempt at a win)

I think gundy made a coaching error when he didn't call a time out to come up with a good game plan at 4th and 7 with a minute or so left. I mean, why would Zac Robinson pass the ball to the LINE OF SCRIMAGE on 4th and 7? o well...

I was surprised we actually stopped texas on the 1 yard line on their last drive and gave us at least a chance to come back. Plus we scored the same number of rushing touchdowns against texas as all of the previous 7 teams combined (only 2), and we managed to force colt to throw his 1st interception at a home game all season (in 170+ pass attempts).

hey, 7-1 is nothing to complain about when it comes to the cowboys \:\)

Now I need The longhorns to lose to texas tech, and texas A&M (yeah right)... Then OSU has to beat texas tech and OU and we can still be the big 12 champions. Now doesn't that sound simple?

Anything can happen, but I wouldn't put money on that scenario.

Btw - I totally agree about not calling a time out. It was a bizarre call. What did he think he was saving his time outs for if he didn't call one then? (not that I'd be any better in that kind of pressure packed situation, but still... I don't get his pay either) \:\)

Well,

Jason (myrison) hope your huskers can pull out a win against OU today. I wouldn't mind seeing some top ranked big 12 teams lose today (except my cowboys of course).

Today I am pulling for texas tech and nebraska (and OSU) \:\)

David, I hope you're right, but I wouldn't put money on it. ;\)

I'm actually going to a Texas Hold 'Em / Texas v. Texas Tech football party tonight, so I'm going to have to twist some arms to get the guys to flip back and forth to the NE game. It could be that I'll be glad I'm not watching it all as it definitely could turn into a rout quickly. \:o

I'm trying to set reasonable expectations and have decided that I'll consider it a wash if Texas OR Nebraska wins today. (even if I lose at poker, which is most normally the case) \:D
