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

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.
The Pac-10 is 5 and 0 this Bowl Season and the "experts" are saying that perhaps we have been too hard on them this year. I am not going to lie going undefeated is great and getting half the conference in a bowl is also impressive but lets take a look at who they beat. We'll start off with the University of Arizona. They beat BYU but on paper shouldn't a BCS school beat the third ranked Mountain West school. Cal, they had a struggling go around this year and they beat Miami from the weak sauce ACC. This is seriously not the Atlantic Coast year, their conference champ was like 5-3 this year and so many other schools deserved to be in a major bowl instead of them. Oregon...We already talked about them. Oregon St. vs Pitt the score was 3 to 0 wanna talk about a boring game. USC winning the Rose Bowl just goes to show how weak the Big-10 really is. Now, I am sure that there are those who are reading this and saying Whoa Wayne Bass how come when the Big-10 losses a big game it shows how weak there conference is but when the Big-12 loses two bowl games the Big-12 is still ok. I explained earlier about how losing key players affects the game and besides they didn't get man handled like Penn State did.
Congratulations to the University of Utah for winning their second BCS Bowl. I really didn't think it would have happened but I wanted it to so on college pick em' I picked em' and they got me like four points
