I'm not going to be watching much football today because the UH men's basketball team is playing at 2:00, so I'll be up there covering that for the mothership. Meanwhile, I'm struggling with what I should write for the mothership for Monday about yesterday's debacle involving the UH football team who lost a game they should have won, and which cost them a semi-decent bowl game. I'll probably wait to find out what the final bowl result is before writing, but I just have no idea how to handle that story at the moment.
Kids, this Richard Justice post is reason number one why you shouldn't do drugs? Seriously, Colt McCoy deserves the Heisman despite his blowing the game for Texas last night -- the Horns won, but had some officiating help on a couple of pass interference calls where the receiver wasn't even looking for the ball and couldn't have caught the ball if he wanted, so badly did McCoy misfire.
I've seen all or part of about half of Texas's games this years, and the one word that has stuck in my mind every time is "overrated." They struggled against the Aggies. They "lost" to a Nebraska team that was demolished by Texas Tech. They struggled against Oklahoma -- if Sam Bradford was healthy enough to play that entire game, Texas loses -- and they struggled against Colorado, Wyoming, Texas Tech, and Kansas. I just don't think they're that good. I'd really like to see Texas have to play a team like TCU, but that's not going to happen because there are no playoffs in NCAA Division One football.
And who's with me? Let's see Alabama and TCU play for the title. That would be a good football game. Texas/Alabama, well, if those two teams play next month like they played yesterday, then Texas will be blown out.
