Beat OU!!


Non-partisan Dallas resident here. My loyalties lie in the SEC.

Anyway, interesting stats - nice for media guides and press clippings. It's refreshing to see a Horn fan include the one that's most important at the end of the day - 0 conference championships (in any league at any level) by teams Mack Brown has been head coach. It's not every Horn fan that doesn't stop after spewing all of the other stuff.

U of Tx should win. Vince Young is just so dominant, and carefree in a good sense that he doesn't let misplays on individual plays bother him, that I think he's the difference this year that U of Tx has been missing. He may mess up but he'll come back the next play and act like nothing happened. If MACK leaves him alone, then I'd expect the Horns will win something like 38-13.

As a neutral observer, it'd probably be more entertaining if OU won - just to see/hear all the hand wringing from Horn fans, and to see old Mack running his hands through his hair at the press conference about how he lost another one in spite of his team being stocked with the best players in America at every position. I wouldn't revel in the cockiness that is Bob Stoops, mind you - I don't wish good things on him either. Just seeing Mack beat down is fairly entertaining.
