Talk amongst yourselves . . .

I'm still around. Mid-terms approach, and while I do have things to post on, they would take more time to write than I have just now; so, I will be away from "here" a while longer.

In the meantime: If I have to say anything more in this space about the significance of this Saturday at high noon*, the one annual event that all thinking people can point to as affirming a Manichean good-vs.-evil metaphysics, I really must revoke your college-football-fan credentials.

*Well, okay, 11:00 am local time, which I admit undercuts the mythos of the day a wee bit . . . would Gary Cooper, over Grace Kelly's protestations, have gone back to defend a town in a film called Eleven AM???)

I'm torn, actually. Given that both UT and OU seemed to want to rip apart the the Big XII themselves, part of me wishes a pox on both their houses. Nonetheless, because a UT win will help the Tigers, I will support UT.

This year.

Cheers.

Randall,
Don't get me started on the realignment stuff. I will just say, though, that I'm not happy with UT's role in all that. I'm just trying to watch some football and forget all that mess.

Speaking as a CU alumni, and with the assumption that MU is headed to the SEC/Big 10, a Big 8 OU/UT "showdown" has become much more of a regional affair then in the past.

Although, good luck and all that.
