I knew we were going to get our asses whooped this month, I just thought it would be next weekend.

Sometimes after a loss, I can say, "if not for ____, we would not have lost." The blank is usually filled with "that fumble" or "that injury" or something. I fill in the blank today with "that game."

I wonder how many times in college football history a team has returned a kick-off, a punt and an INT for a TD in the same game. Not often, I bet. I also imagine that no team has ever lost when they have picked up 21 points on the "cycle" of returns.

If you had told me 24 hours ago that we would lose to KSU and that OU is beatable next week, I would have asked if I could smoke what you were smoking.

I knew our O-line was suspect going into the season, and I was right. Then our O-line got injured, and it really got ugly.

There was a weekend in October of 2003 that 5 teams in the top 10 lost (if I recall correctly, UT lost to OU and then LSU lost to Florida prior to winning the NC). This weekend, it looks like 5 of the top 10 teams will lose (if USC wins and Fla. loses).

However much it sucks to lose, I am in either 1st or 2nd place in each of my 4 pools this week. Yes, I took KSU in 2 of them. (I took UT in one, and neither in the fourth one).

KSU is the only team in the Big XII with a winning record against UT since the inception of the conference (OU is 5-5-1). Although Coach Snyder is gone, Coach Prince beats us using his predecessor's formula: special teams and turnovers.

John, go the 'Stros game tomorrow. He will catch then, too.

I went 4-1 on the IAG football pickem contest (not one of "my four pools", I only count the ones that win me money.)

I never weighed in on this, but firing Phil Garner was stupid. If anybody can explain that one to me, I am all ears.

If you give me $1,200, I will mail you secretive emails with my honest assessment of Coach Fran's coaching abilities. (Hint: remember the email with the monkey smelling his finger and falling out of the tree?)

OU sucks.
