How sweet it is…

Revenge is mine sayeth the Lord;  Breckyn Hagar the Longhorn who ran his mouth last week and fired up the OU defense must have missed this Sunday School lesson.  He was on the wrong team for this prophesy to come true.  I felt pretty good going into the game, but with Hagar disparaging the Lord’s team I realized I could go ahead and book my tickets for the playoffs.

Of course Lincoln had to make things interesting by deferring to the second half, a move that guaranteed that we would be playing catch up. That’s okay this made for one of the best endings of all time.  Not since the Roy Williams “Superman” hit on Chrissy Simms some twenty years ago have we had such an “in your face” ending to the Texas game.

That dramatic hit and ending made the wait since October and the anxiety of the game worth it.  Give Ruffin McNeil credit for saving that call until that precise moment and getting the most out of his players on Saturday.  I don’t want to think about what might have happened if Mike Stoops had still been in charge at the end of that game.

Okay, now we will have to play the “be careful what you ask for” game part II.  As I said before, I don’t want any part of Alabama or Georgia. Then again, as they say “if you don’t want to hunt with the big dogs, stay on the porch.”  This is the reason five star recruits come to Oklahoma.  We are not just playing for this year; we are playing for the future.   Given this offense, I think we can hang with Alabama for a while.

And another thing, Saban and Alabama will not be around forever…someone will eventually have to take their spot…why not OU.   After all, “there is only one Oklahoma”…
