Who do I think is going to win the Heisman this year? I think it's going to be Colt McCoy... Colt's name has been thrown around the Heisman rumors for a couple of years now, which is more then anyone else can say who's a finalist. But, in Colt's defense he has thrown for about 3,500 yards and is the second leading rusher on the Texas team. But, I think that name recognition will win it for him... And the fact that his Longhorn team has gone undefeated. Mark Ingram has been essential to the Crimson Tide this year and they are also undefeated. That big Defensive Tackle out of Nebraska has one stellar case with 12 sacks on the season, but lets be honest he plays defense. Now that running back out of Stanford Toby Gerhart has got some serious wheels, and he's Caucasian-American! Toby Gerhart has rushed for more yards then Mark Ingram (1542 yds and 15 TD's) vs Gerharts (1,736 and 26 TD's) but I don't think that anyone will argue when I say that Bama has played a tougher Defenses this year! But, at the end of the day I do think it's going to be that Texas kid.

Alabama did it! And, they did it handily. Holly Cow! 13 to 32 that is mad crazy! That's what happens when Florida plays a crappy schedule, the second they play a real contender they fold up like a tin chair after an LDS potluck. Seriously, the only ranked win this year came from LSU and they only won by 10. Alabama on the other hand has had the most impressive schedule in the NCAA by beating 5 top ranked teams.

So, I have all but dismissed the notion that Bob Stoops would be leaving the Sooner State for Notre Dame, I have dismissed this because he said he would be back next year... Bob has always been very straight forward with the media in the past. I think ever since Nick Saben I have hated it when coaches say they aren't leaving and then next week they leave. It irritated me when Rich Rodrigzous did that same thing when he left West Virginia for Michigan, or Less Miles when he said that he wasn't leaving OSU for LSU and then he did. So, how am I going to feel if Bob Stoops leaves after he straight out said that he is not leaving Oklahoma for Notre Dame?

"He he I wash my back with a rag on a stick" - Charlie Weis. I am sure he's a good guy... We could at least talk about football if we were stuck together in a cross country road trip. I remember once I had a dream I was ridding to go to thanksgiving and this girl asked if I had ever heard of John Madden and my response was yeah he's the biggest idiot in football. I then went on to complain about how annoyed I would get with his commentary during the football game. Then I spouted off that he wins one Superbowl with the Raiders then and he is deemed a Football God. The girl in my dream then announced that he is her uncle and will be there for thanksgiving, and I flipped out. "Holy cow I get to meet John Madden?" She then said I thought you said he was an idiot and you hate him? I then told her yeah but he's still John Freakin' Madden! And, I was super excited to meet him!

So, I was texting with Mr. Thome about Boise State getting one step closer to a BCS Bid with Oklahoma State losing to Oklahoma. But, you need to keep in mind that if Nebraska can upset Texas in the Big 12 championship then that means that both Nebraska and Texas will go to a BCS Bowl, but that's not all that needs to happen because.

So, with the Mighty Tim Tebow and his weak sauces Florida schedule this year it looks like he could be playing for another National Title... Although, its not Florida's fault that the entire NCAA has been boring this year and no team has really knocked my socks off yet... But, that is not what I want to talk about. I want to talk about Tim Tebow in the Pro's. How do you think he'll do? I am thinking not that hot... Let's talk about a couple other College Running Quarterbacks who were destined for NFL Greatness.... These names come to mind: Tommy Frazier (Neb), Scott Frost(Neb), Vince Young(UT), Michael Vick(VT), and coming soon to the list Tim Tebow (Florida). All of them were expected to be phenomenal once they got to the Pro's...

MAN I HATE THAT GUY HE IS NOT... Wait a minute... Breath... Relax Wayne... Count Out Loud 3,2,1...1,2,3 What the heck is bothering me? Landry Jones that's what's freakin' bothering me! "the leading freshman in TD's" had thrown 0 TD's but he did engineer 3 interceptions and only connected on half of his throws. Ahhhh! I am so frustrated! So, to distract me from the OU game I'll talk a little about what has happened today the 7th of November...
Thursday, November 5, 2009
Just let the record show that Wayne Bass has been very unimpressed with Mr. Landry Jones this season. Do I hold this Freshman responsible for Oklahoma's three losses? Sort of... I mean no one thought that Sam Bradford would have gotten injured that first game and that he would have to step up and take the rains. I have seen this immature quarterback make some dumb passes for example in the remaining seconds of the Texas game he throws the ball into double coverage thinking that with his arm strength he can throw it through the Texas defender and to his receiver. Landry was wrong... The ball was intercepted and Freakin' Texas won. So, perhaps I have been too tough on the ole boy. I thought of this new line of thinking when I read an article about how Landry Jones is the leading Freshman passer in the nation.

Who'd of thunk that the same Ducks of Eugene Oregon who in their season opener lost to Boise State of the WAC would be currently leading the Pac-10 and spanking USC for challenging there Pac-10 dominance! This is not the same team that I watched on the smurf turf September 3rd. I mean the Ducks I watched last night were making good exchanges from the center to the quarterback, they were keeping the ball off of the ground and more importantly out of the other teams hands, and no one punched anyone. I don't know what Chip Kelly did to those guys to make such a dramatic turn around, but what ever it was keep on doing it. The USC Oregon game was fun and exciting until the 3rd quarter when the Ducks put on 17 points as opposed to USC 3 and then another 6 points in the fourth and USC remained unable to score closing out the game at 47-20. WOW! So, the USC win bumps up Oregon from the 10th spot to number eight right behind Boise then TCU, Cincinnati, Iowa, Alabama, Texas, and Florida. Which leads me to my next point.

With Tony Pike out... who cares the Bearcats are just as good with their back up! In Cincinnati the Bearcats are reeking havoc in the Big East! Honestly, their only real test this year was when they beat the 21st ranked at that time South Florida. But, keep in mind that the South Florida Bulls beat Florida State of the ACC who beat BYU who beat The University of Oklahoma who lost by only three points to the third ranked Texas. So, in a round about BCS way the Bearcats are totally legit. If these guys win out as well as Texas and Iowa then we'll have some major argumentation over who is going to play the SEC Champ for the National Title. If Texas goes undefeated in the Big 12 then only ranked teams that they beat were at the time 20th OU and this week the 14th Oklahoma State. If Iowa wins out then there only ranked wins would be at that time the 5th ranked Penn State and in the upcoming weeks 17th ranked Ohio State. As previously mentioned the Bearcats have already beat one ranked team they also have the current 21st ranked West Virginia and the 15th ranked Pittsburgh coming up on their schedule. So, as of right now if nothing changes in the BCS (yeah right) then the Bearcats of Cincinnati will have defeated more ranked teams then Texas and Iowa. But, Penn State was ranked in the top 5 and lost by 11 points. To be honest with you this is ridiculous to sit here and speculate over who is more deserving to play Bama or the Gators in the National Championship game. And who's to say that they deserve to be crowned an automatic National Title Bid? The only ranked wins that Florida has was over then the 4th ranked LSU and that was only by ten points. If nothing changes the only other ranked opponent is South Carolina at 22. Alabama on the other hand will have 4 top 25 ranked wins. Good for them : ) BCS speaking does that mean that technically that Alabama is the best team in the NCAA? No, thank goodness for a SEC championship game to weed out who will be going on to the National Championship Game. According to this BCS theory we really don't need a championship game... Right? We know who will win because of the strength of the schedule and nevermind the fact that teams get better as the season goes on. And that sports fan's is reason one thousand three hundred fifty seven of why we need a play off system.

Well, Sam Bradford is going to get the season ending sugary necessary to get him ready for the 2010 NFL Draft. Sam was the projected number one over all pick last year, and this year we got Colt McCoy, Jimmy Clausen, Tim Tebow, and I am not sure but I think that tall fellow out of Cincinnati Tony Pike is a Sr. and he's a stud as well. So, who's worried about spending a lot of monies on a stud QB who has basically had to set out his redshirt Junior year. I am sure that Slinging Sammy will be just fine in the NFL. He probably wont be the number one overall pick or even the first quarterback but he's still the man and will probably still be a first rounder. We'll miss you Sam. Sam Bradford has done more for the Oklahoma Sooners in the 21st Century save Bob Stoops only then any other man within the organization.

I believe the answer is no. So, if I am right and only one Non-BCS school is invited then how is the BCS going to determine who is more deserving? We have Boise State who beat Oregon 19 to 8 and the Ducks are currently the number one team in the Pac-10. We have TCU who have played two BCS schools who are having less then good years, although Clemson did just defeat the number 10 ranked Miami, and the Hornedfrogs just beat the number 16th ranked BYU. So, by beating a number 16th ranked team does that justify the number 8th ranked TCU jumping over #7 Iowa, #6USC, #5 Cincinnati, and number 4 Boise? Now is it fair for the BCS to drop Boise to a lower ranking the TCU? The only ranked team that Boise has beat was the Mighty Ducks who as previously mentioned is leading the Pac-10 and currently ranked #11 in the nation and the only ranked team that TCU has beat was the 16th ranked Stormin' Mormons in Provo and two un-ranked BCS schools. So, how is the BCS algorithms going to determine who is more deserving of the higher ranking and a prestigious bowl bid? Clearly, if TCU beats the number 18 Utah then there are two ranked win's for TCU as opposed to the one ranked win Boise has over Oregon. But, if Oregon wins the Pac-10 then shouldn't that carry some weight seeing how BYU and Utah aren't apart of a BCS Conference? This is CRAZYNESS and all of this can be fixed by a simple play off to determine a true National Champion. Every game will still count because everyone will be fighting for a play off spot. Anyways, last year was fun talking about the three way tie in the Big 12 and I hope that both TCU and Boise State continue to give logical reasons as to why they deserve a BCS Bowl. And, I am sure that the NCAA Football Program will continue to always give us examples of why this current system doesn't work like it was promised "to give us a true National Champion." (Not that I am saying that any mid-majors can actually be The National Champion, but it's nice to atleast give them the occasional shot.)

So, with the number one ranked Florida Gators on the verge of loosing its first game of the season to the unranked Arkansas Razorbacks it was time for the twelfth man to step up and take charge. No, Texas A&M were not talking about the fan's but the brave men who wear Black and White. Yes, thank you Mr. Referee for making it possible for Tim Tebow to engineer a comeback victory in Gainesville. You are probably thinking "Wayne Bass you talk crazy." Wayne Bass only talks the truth.
Sunday, October 18, 2009
Oh man this has been major league crappy weekend for Wayne Bass! Number one Texas caught the break of a life time by getting Landry Jones instead of Sam Bradford. Number two latter that night I went to pick up my date and she informs me that she can't go because her best friend from Provo is up and therefore can't go...She sent me an e-mail earlier. And, number three I am getting my butt kicked in Fantasy Football by the Birdman him self Big Dan Bird.
The Nebraska fan was first in line, so he thought about this for a while and then said, "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The Nebraska fan had to be carried away bleeding and weak with pain when the punishment was done.
The Texas fan was next up, and after watching the scene, said "All Right! I wish for zero whippings, and his wish was granted.
The Sooner fan was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheik turned to him and said, "You support the greatest team in the world, your alumni has some of the best and most loyal football fans in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!"
"Thanks, your most Royal highness," the Sooner fan replies. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes."
"Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave," the Sheik says with an admiring look on his face. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish? What is it to be?" the Sheik asks.
"Tie the Texas fan to my back."
A local sports reporter who was strolling by sees the incident and rushes over to interview the boy. He tells the boy he's going to write the story and says, "I'll title it 'Young Sooner Fan Saves Friend From Vicious Animal'".
"But I'm not a Sooner fan", the little hero replies.
"Sorry, since we're in Oklahoma, I just assumed you were", says the reporter. Ok I'll title it 'OK State Fan Rescues Friend From Horrific Attack' sound?"
"I'm not an OSU fan either", the boy says.
Reporter asks, you do like football don't you boy?
The boy's reply was "yes sir its just that I'm only visiting my cousin, I'm a Texas Longhorn fan, they're just the best!" The reporter smiles, and the next day the paper read: "Little Longhorn Bastard From Texas Kills Beloved Family Pet".
The teacher looks at the girl with surprise and says, " Janie, why didn't you raise your hand?"
"Because I'm not a Longhorn fan " she replied. The teacher, still shocked, asked "Well, if you are not a Longhorn fan, then who are you a fan of?"
"I am a Sooner fan," Janie replied. The teacher could not believe her ears. "Janie, WHY are you a Sooner fan?"
"Because my Mom is a Sooner fan, my Dad is a Sooner fan, so I am a Sooner fan also."
"Well" said the teacher, in an obviously annoyed tone, "that is no reason for you to be a Sooner fan. You don't have to be just like your parents all the time. What if your Mom was a snotty arrogant loud mouth jerk and your Dad was a snotty arrogant loud mouth jerk, what would you be then?"
"Then" Janie smiled,"We'd all be Longhorn fans I guess."

Ok I am sure that everyone who saw the Boise Oregon game on September 3rd and saw the Oregon Running Back hit that number 94 player from Boise after the game. Ok, first of all I really don't think it was a cheap shot... I think that number 94 turned as Blount was winding up, or say I don't think that he was thinking oh he's not looking now I'll hit. I think he just got pissed that that number 94 wised off. Then he flips out of what looked like steroid rage and then after he got calmed down young fans began to taunt this clearly unstable young man and the Blount moves to attack the fans. I feel that number 94 was planning on being able to say what ever he wanted to and then hide behind the sporstmanship shield (I'm not saying that he would run from a fist fight with Blount but he felt protected) and those fans felt that they can do whatever they want to do and hide behind the fact that they are fans just like the idiot who threw a beer at Ron Artest . Am I trying to defend LeGarrette Blount? No, I think he was wrong for what he did, and I would have kicked him off the team. I am sure that you are probably thinking why am I talking about this like 5 or 6 weeks after the matter? It's because they are probably going to let him back into play. You know what? I am ok with that because I am all about forgiveness and moving on, and I am not sure but I think that this is the only real black mark on his record. He has already set out for a while and really has little to no shot at winning any post season awards. I don't know if you remember but his name was floating around as a possible Heisman Candidate. Anyways, the reason I started writing is because Dez Braynt has already set out for two games because he wasn't entirely truthful with the NCAA about his visit to Deion Sanders house. If LeGarrette is going to be able to play after his post game shenanigans then let Dez Bryant play as well... I don't know I think one is way worse then the other.

So, Alabama has jumped over Texas for the number two spot behind Florida. Why has this happened Texas has yet to lose a game? In-fact Texas has scored 236 and Bama has only scored 222 and both teams have only allowed 75 points to be scored on them this year. So, according to this Mythical BCS Algorithm shouldn't Texas retain their number two spot?
Sunday, October 11, 2009
Now, you didn't hear this from me, because I don't like to spread rumors but I've heard that Jordan Shipley and Colt McCoy are not only GAY, but they were seen at the home of Prime Time Neon Deion Sanders along with Dez Bryant of OK State. I know this is shocking news and just a week before the Red River Shoot Out...(Dang) That is horrible timing for Mack Brown and the Longhorns, but rules are rules... "NO KICKING IT AT THE HOME OF FORMER NFL SUPERSTUDS!" So, with the upcoming suspension of Heisman hopeful and his girlfriend the Longhorns are going to have to form a different game plan against the Sooners this year.

So, I am having a hard time sleeping, so I thought I would read some people's blogs. I should comment more but I always feel like what I have to say is well...How do you say in english? "dumb" Anyways, I enjoyed reading about Thome's encounter with that Hobo, and I am interested in learning Quinn's thoughts on Bret Farve. Anyways, as I was reading through the blogs I came to an conclusion about my own blog. I am starting to lack variety. My blog is titled Waynes Wild World of COLLEGE FOOTBALL not Waynes special take on the SOONERS! I've been talking about them a lot and I plan on diversifying myself more. (One thing that bugs me about this small corner of the world is that it feels like a lot not all but a lot of people can only talk about BYU, Utah, and Boise State football and when you mention someone outside of that they look at you cross eyed.) I DON'T WANT TO BE LIKE THAT! There is a ton of stuff I could have been talking about like Tebow's concussion, Lane Kiffin pickin' fights with Urban Myers, Ohio State's 3 point loss to USC, USC loss to Washington, and what not, and Noter Dame's...just kidding no one wants to talk about the fighting irish. In the future let it be known that Wayne Bass is going to talk about COLLEGE FOOTBALL and not just about my beloved Sooners.
Sunday, October 4, 2009
Yes, it is true the Oklahoma Sooners went into Dolphin Stadium and lost in a 20 to 21 decision to the Miami Hurricanes of the ACC. It has been a rough start for the Sooners this year beginning with of the loss of the six foot six two hundred and sixty pound tight end Jermaine Gresham. Jermaine is not only big and strong enough to block defensive ends and linebackers but he has the agility to go out split and make things happen as a wide receiver. Last year Jermaine Gresham turned down the NFL Draft to come back for his Sr. year. Many thought that was insane because of his first round predictions, but for reasons which are unbeknownst unto me he choose to stay and finish his Sr. year. The season was starting with serious promise and with the passing offense centered around Gresham things seemed bright for the Sooners but just days before the season opener with the Stormin' Mormon's of BYU it was announced that Jermaine Gresham will not play for the reminder of his Sr. year.

I think football in it's pure unadulterated form is the greatest thing since peanut-butter meeting jelly. I have played flag football in the BYU-Idaho rec sports program for most of my time here at school. It's a lot of fun, and I have made a lot of friends playing. If I had to do college all over again I would defiantly play flag football again, like I said its been a lot of fun. I just feel that there needs to be two major changes with the program.
The first change is with the referee's. The referees are so inconsistent from week to week, one will say you can or you can't do this particular thing and the next week another official will say something contradictory, and we as participance are expected to adjust with out questioning the wisdom of the referee. Keep in mind how hard that is sometimes with some ref's not all but some have this Napoleon Complex where we have to bow down to and be chill with them and take what they say as the gospel truth.
I have tried to help avoid this confusion by bringing a laminated copy of the rules which we can review on-line. More then one time even though I had highlighted main points that are apparently vague and not direct the referee has told me that their superior has told them something different. I have requested that the referee's all meet together on a regular basics so that the rules can be correlated and everyone can be on the same page, but I was informed that they all ready do that. (So, why in the world is there so much confusion on the field?)
My second complaint is the fact that they have taken athleticism out of an athletic event! Seriously, when I first started playing the line-men could block with elbows locked out where the arms are strait, or the hands had to be close into the body. There could be no going back and forth like in a pushing motion and you know what I am cool with that! Over time they have changed it to where you can't use your hands to block just your body, now they tell us that we can make zero contact with the opponent wither on offense or defense. So, imagine having to block using a magical force field around you to keep the guy on defense from getting to your quarterback. Oh and I almost forgot when a defender does hit you and you fall the referee will tell you not to insult his intelligence by “flopping.” WHAT! It doesn't matter if I flopped or not the fact of the matter is that he broke my magical force field and made contact with me when this is not a contact sport!
Something else that irritates me to no end is how they misinterpret the no hurdling rule. As outlined in the on-line rule book for player, (perhaps there is another rule book for the ref's), but the one that we read states that jumping over a player who has both feet planted on the ground is illegal, so therefore according to some officials this includes any type of jump, skip, or hop out of the way of a would be flag getter. We can't stiff arm or swat their hand out of the way and now we can't do the smallest hop to the left while in the pocket to avoid losing our flag. As previously stated they are taking athleticism out of this athletic event which I love.
Brigham Young is reported to have said that the greatest fear he had was that members of the Church would take what he said as the mind and will of God without first praying and obtaining a witness of the same for themselves. We did the same things a missionaries we never wanted people to just say oh ok if that is the way then I will just go with the crowed. No, we challenged them to question everything taught to them research, ponder, and prey. Now I understand that our Heavenly Father has more pressing issues then Flag Football, but the point that I am trying to make is that it is Ok no wait it's expected to challenge the norm, to ask questions, to want to make changes when we feel that something is wrong!
Brother's and Sisters there needs to be some changes made and the time is now! I invite everyone everywhere within the sound of my pen to pick up a writing utensil of your own write into the REC Sports Program to let your voice be heard about problems you see within the program. This is the only way to make any changes. Let it be known that the Officials are separate from REC Sports, but if we let the REC know then they will make things happen!

What has two thumbs and can't wait for college football to start? This guy! (You can't see but both my thumbs were pointing at me.) Anyways, I can't wait seriously I am super excited! Some notable games to look for in the first week of September is...Oklahoma vs. BYU, Oregon vs Boise State, Missouri vs Illinois, and Georgia vs Oklahoma State!
Thursday, January 15, 2009
So, I have been wondering for a while if Sam was going to the Draft, and I was pretty sure he was I mean he had over 50 touchdowns and only 8 interceptions and a Heisman Trophy! I mean what more could a QB want? Apparently, he wants to gain more experience, perhaps a degree, and oh yeah A NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP! Keep in mind sports fans that Sam is not alone the six foot six 260 pound Tight End Jermain Gresham who is not only a monster but has the athletic ability to split out wide to catch passes there as well has also turned down the chance to join the NFL Draft. At wide outs we have pretty much the same corps of recievers for the exception of number 9 Juaquin Iglesias, but it ain't no thing we have the red-shirt freshman number 85 Ryan Broyles to fill the void. Broyles was the 4th ranked athlete in the nation right out of high shcool, and I think he will do just fine as he matures. At running back oh baby are we stacked at running back. Let's see we got Demarco Maurry, Chris Brown, and Mossis Madu. Not too shabby boys!

So, the Oklahoma Sooners are headin' to Florida tomorrow for the third time this year to play on a neutral field which conveniently enough is the home state of the opponent. Dag Gum I'll tell you what I would give anything for a big win for the Sooners. To go on a 4 year BCS Bowl losing streak SUCKS MAN! But, I don't know something tells me that they are going to win big tomorrow. I am not sure if it's inspiration or desperation but I think they are going to win! I've bet all 34 points that the Sooners are gonna do it! 64 to 28 is what I think the final score is going to be. Even with injuries which seem to plague OU I don't think will hender them too much, so maybe I should change my pick to 57-34. Meh what's done is done. Did I mention that I am number one in College Pickem'
The above photo was an actual billboard in Texas and yes it is true OU has had it's fair share of problems with the NCAA. But, that was due to decades of NCAA infractions finally coming down on us. But honestly what else would you expect bored oil men to do with their money. I think Texas is just jealous
Saturday, January 3, 2009
So, with this year's bowl season winding down I am sad to say the the Big-12 is not undefeated Oklahoma State and Texas Tech has lost! I am not going to lie ESPN is really bothering me by talking about how the Big-12 has been overrated this year. WHAT! Overrated? Because our 3rd and 4th teams lost please, both those games big name players received injuries. Names like Dez Bryant and Michael Crabtree! For crying out loud people the best defense is to have a great offense out on the field. If you can control the clock then you limit the amount of snaps the other quarterback takes. The less snaps he takes then that limits your opponents chance to score. And, taking away heavy hitters like Bryant and Crabman allows defenses to focus more on other aspects of the game because your deep threat has been taken away. I mean honestly what do you think would have happen if Michael Jordan randomly got hurt during the NBA finals. Is it possible that The Jazz could have won a championship? Now, I don't want to play the What If game but I don't want the Big-12 to be dumped on because two teams have lost games.
