Sooner Sweet Home

So much stuff going on this week all of a sudden…let’s hop to it.

**

Why is everybody SO shocked that Texas Tech got worked over like a two bit whore on Saturday in Norman? Seriously, was it that big of a surprise? Did anybody bother to look at Mike Leach’s road record? Did anybody bother to look at Oklahoma’s home record? Did anybody realize that OU plays in big games like that several times..EVERY year. Did anybody realize Texas Tech had never been positioned like that..pretty much ever?

It boggles my mind why people tend to look past these items, and fail to look at the big picture. Granted, that is different than picking Nebraska to win 4 games, because if you remember…yours truly was not counting on the complete and total collapse of Kansas State and Kansas this season either. In other words…I still think you are shitty and will be proven as such…I just think those around you have sunk even faster than you did. Regardless and back to my point…people tend to look away at blinding factors when prognosticating college football games. Let’s take a look at what I’m talking about.

Everybody today is ready to anoint Oklahoma University as the greatest team in the land, and rightfully so. They have probably the best QB in the country…they have talent all over the field and just as I told you back in August…they are simply better than everyone else. That has not changed.

But have you taken a good hard look at OU over the past few years? Have you realized that nearly every one of their of their “dominant performances" have been at home? Have you counted to see how many of those “dominant” performances have been on the road or hell, even on a neutral site? I’ll save you the trouble of looking. Below is OU’s record vs. ranked (and a couple of unranked) teams in neutral or road environments. Notice their lone tough "road" game this year was in Dallas:

2008
At #5 Texas in Dallas (Lost 35-45)

2007
At unranked Colorado (Lost 24-27)
Vs. #19 Texas at Dallas (Won 28-21)
At unranked Texas Tech (Lost 27-34)
Vs. #1 Missouri at San Antonio (Won 38-17)
Vs. #11 West Virginia at Glendale, AZ (Lost 28-48)

2006
At #18 Oregon (Lost 33-34)
Vs. #7 Texas at Dallas (Lost 10-28)
At. #23 Missouri (Won 26-10)
At #21 Texas A&M (Won 17-16)
Vs. #18 Nebraska in Kansas City (Won 21-7)
Vs. #9 Boise State at Glendale, AZ (Lost 42-43 OT)

Not exactly un-beatable numbers now is it?

Granted, I will give Oklahoma credit…a couple of those losses were due to either poorly timed injuries to key players (Tech last year), horrible officiating (at Oregon) and or numerous trick plays (Boise). Regardless, the same people that are anointing Oklahoma as the greatest team on earth this week, are the same people who haven’t realized the fact that Bob Stoops isn’t anywhere nearly as dominant away from home. Hell, the biggest win on that list was last year’s Big 12 title game against Missouri..and even then, they were tied at halftime. (Plus, according to many of you, Missouri sucks anyway)

My point is..there is a lot of football left to play, and don’t be surprised if these “shocking” upsets happen that really aren’t so shocking. All it takes is a couple of seconds to look at the big picture.

**

Word out of Manhattan today is that Count Billula is back in charge in Manhattan.

I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this "hire". On one hand, how much worse could he really be? Ron Prince never was truly embarrassed by KSU fans, and was obviously out of his element on the sidelines during games. I think Ron Prince has a shot of being a decent coach somewhere down the line..but in order to win in central Kansas, you have to have a few tricks up your sleeve. The man may be an excellent coordinator or position coach, but he was obviously in over his head with his own team. (Although you have to tip your hat to KSU at the time for taking the chance on a relatively unproven African-American candidate.)

With that being said, can today’s high school player truly relate to Snyder and his old-school ways? I understand he pulled a miracle out of his..uhh..hat... back in the mid 90’s, but does he really have enough time left to rebuild that? And how much does Kansas and Missouri suddenly being strong impact him in recruiting? And don’t people remember his last two seasons as head coach, where he struggled to make a bowl his final year.

I’m not going to say it’s a failure in waiting…KSU really didn’t have many choices here. But it’s definitely an eyebrow raiser if anything. At the very least, I’m looking forward to more hate being generated by Husker fans who obviously, are not big fans of Bill Snyder and his past body of work.

Time will certainly tell.

**

I’m not sure I’ve heard anything more funny than the Omaha media’s sudden love with the Gator bowl and the city of Jacksonville. Now as you may know, I’ve been lucky enough to travel the country, and visit cities from coast to coast. Let the record show that a possible 8-4 season for Nebraska, not only demonstrates that you didn’t choke against teams they shouldn’t beat…but that Order has finally been restored by participating in the same bowl that Virginia went to last season. Either way, not being sucked into the abyss of other North teams has served you well this season, although it probably doesn’t help King Bo in the long run. (More on that later this week, and yes...even Charlie Weis had a good first year)

Regardless, I realize I am a TAD bit biased here…but don’t you think you people should actually visit Jacksonville, FL before you start singing it’s praises? Look, I realize it’s a large-scale miracle that you parlayed shitty coaching and zero talent into a “successful”* season. (* considering you won 9 games per year for 30 years…but hey…gotta start small right?)

But trust me when I say that the Gator Bowl is a “New Year’s Day Bowl” in the calendar sense only. I’m sure this will fall on deaf ears, and I don’t expect you to listen to ANY of this…but when you get off the plane, and suddenly feel like you’re in a warmer version of Erie, Pennsylvania…you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you when you’re suddenly longing for the dusty festival atmosphere of El Paso. (That is if you don’t choke to CU first)
Not sure why, but all this talk about how great "Florida" is in January. Obviously those people haven't been to Jacksonville. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Power Poll time


NORTH:

1) Missouri (9-2, 5-2) vs. Kansas @KC – The oldest hate week of them all goes down at Arrowhead this weekend. Not even close to last year in spotlight appeal, Mizzou attempts to run over a porous KU defense while trying not to think about the freight train coming that is OU or Texas.

2) Kansas (6-5, 3-4) vs. Missouri @KC – As I type this, I haven’t heard what the status is of Jake Sharpe or Kerry Meier. Then again, neither of them play defense, and KU is giving up 9,000 yards a game. I learned long ago not to assume anything in rivalry games, but KU is going to need Reesing to play out of his ass to keep this close. I expect it to be close for a while, but no way does KU have the horses to stick around for a full 60 minutes.

3) Colorado (5-6, 2-5) at Nebraska – Never before has a trip to Shreveport looked so good, as Dan Hawkins and his team gimps into Hickville for their annual post-Thanksgiving love fest with Nebraska. CU has had all sorts of trouble scoring late, although Nebraska is thinking awfully highly of itself these days. (Despite doing nothing but beating KU by 10 and getting by a KSU team that quit.) I didn’t think CU had a shot here..but I’m changing my tune quickly as I hear NU fans making plans for Jacksonville. You'd think 1996 would have taught them a lesson.

4) Nebraska (7-4, 4-3) vs. Colorado – A team with as little talent as Nebraska (and don’t kid yourself…you don’t have that much talent), can not afford to look past ANYONE…let alone a team that hates you. The key question here is whether or not Colorado can dig down and catch Hick nation sleepwalking. Take it from a guy who’s team has sucked over the years. You don’t look past people til you have earned it. (And no, earning it 12 years ago doesn’t count)

5) Kansas State (5-7, 2-6) Season Complete – Bill Snyder returns to Manhattan in one of the more interesting moves of the off-season. (that hasn’t even begun yet.) The question now is what sort of staff can he put together, and when he pushes Josh Freeman to improve, will it be enough to make him snap. No team will be more interesting to watch this off-season than KSU.

6) Iowa State (2-10, 0-8) Season Complete – ISU’s basketball team is pretty good. I think they play Hawaii tonight or something. Remember that time they made it to the Elite 8? Yeah, that was cool.


SOUTH:

1) Oklahoma (10-1, 6-1) at Oklahoma State – As we’ve seen in OU’s road games over the past few years..the Sooners are a different team away from Norman. However, Okie State is just enough of a rivalry to keep their minds focused on this Saturday. Okie State’s struggle with Colorado has me wondering if they have enough left in the tank.

2) Texas (10-1, 6-1) vs. Texas A&M - Texas is but an Oklahoma State win away from possibly playing for a national title, without winning their division outright. (Sound familiar hicks?) Hanging by a thread, Texas needs only to dispose of A&M to ensure themselves of at least a BCS birth (most likely). Funny thing is…how many times have bad A&M teams beaten good Texas teams? Doesn’t matter. Won’t happen this year.

3) Texas Tech (10-1, 6-1) vs. Baylor – Tech is going to be plenty pissed off, as Baylor comes to town this week. The Raiders haven’t had to bounce back from anything this year, so it will be interesting to see how they will do. Robert Griffin is just good enough to make you pay for sleepwalking…just as Tech did against mediocre teams in Nevada and Nebraska. Which one shows up? My guess is, the one that throttled KU earlier in the year.

4) Oklahoma State (9-2, 5-2) vs. Oklahoma – Okie State has a lot on the line this weekend. Not only would they knock OU’s National Title hopes out the window…but an Okie State win would put a feather in the cap of Mike Gundy, who has done one gekk if a job this season. Unfortunately, I don’t think OSU has the horses to go up and down the field…but if Big Game Bob Stoops and his team are already looking toward Arrowhead, they could be in trouble. By far, the most interesting game of the weekend.

5) Baylor (4-7, 2-5) at Texas Tech – Baylor came pretty damn close to making a bowl this year, which is an absolute miracle if you think about it. Most of the team is back next year, as the Bears came just a few games short of being one of the Cinderella teams of the conference.

6) Texas A&M (4-7, 2-5) at Texas – The Sherman era is off to a roaring start this season. However, of all the rivalry games in America, this one seems to always be one of the craziest. There is some serious hatred between these two teams…but even the strongest effort in the world is going to be enough to stop Cold McCoy and company.

Kiss my ass AJ! When are you going to give the mighty Huskers our due and rank us where we belong, at the TOP of the north! You guys got lucky in Lincoln sneaking out of town with a tarnished win the biased refs handed to you! Had we not been playing against 15 or 16 players every play we would have buried you bastards!

In your blog post below, you've got a fusker fan dissing Mizzou for how lame Columbia is and how lame their stadium is.

Wait, what? Are you fucking kidding me? I've never been to Columbia but I guarantee you it's better than that shithole stinkholn. And your stadium? 45% endzone seating.

A concrete mass of squeeze shoots slapped together -- literally the ugliest football stadium (college or pro) that I've ever been to.

Engineer? Why do you come on the board of a guy who literally despises everything you love in college sports and kiss his ass?

I'm glad you're all making plans for your 8 and 4 co-big XII north championship season.

Hey chicken shit bastard, "my nickname for cowards with no handle who shoot off the mouth" are you fucking Colorado people so dumb you can't figure out that as great as we are there is no possible way we share the North with Missouri. Let me educate you a bit you buffalo seaman drinking puke.

Missouri kicked our ass in the holy grail of football stadiums known as Memorial Stadium. That gives them the head to head if they were to tie win loss records with us. But to do that they would have to lose to KU and as much as I dislike those one tooth bastards at Missouri that isn't going to happen. Kansas is far better than your low life sCUm bastards but not good enough to beat Missouri who in on the end of a good 2 year run.

So there you no name bastard, you have been educated!

As far as talking shit about our stadium, try harder dip shit we all know it is a crowded old piece of shit! You need to find something new to throw at us ass wipe!

And why are you talking smack with my man Engineer? Didn't you know that is AJ's alter ego, he created that character so he would have one Husker friend on this fucked up blog.

As far as the game goes Friday. Do you actually think you guys have a snow mans chance at AJ's house of winning this game! We may suck when it comes to playing the good teams but when it comes to playing has beens and never was teams we still dominate. Look at the record this year buffalo nuts, we are sitting at 7-4 with a good shot at ending the season at 9-4! You stupid mother fuckers will be heading home Friday night with a 5-7 record looking forward to, well I guess you have nothing to look forward to do you!

I know you Husker hating mother fuckers are all sick of what is taking place in front of your eyes. Nebraska will OWN the North very soon and the rest of you dip shits will simply be bumps along the road! Ask Joe Klatt, he said that this week on his FSN show.

First of all, I do not kiss AJ's ass. I also do not manufacture some bullshit sense of rage over a guy running his pie hole about my team because:

a) It is a game played by 18-23 yr old kids.

b) He genuinely cracks me up sometimes.

c) Other than his dislike of all things Scarlet and Cream, I pretty much agree with his views on CFB and other things around Omaha.

Look Puffalo Bill, its like this. I volunteer my time to mentor developmentally challenged kids. One of the kids I mentor is a huge UT fan, who loves to make fun of my Huskers. I am not mad at the kid nor do I talk bad to him. He's retarded, what are ya going to do. Clear enough for ya hippie?

I am also definitely not AJ's alter-ego. AJ is, I believe, a Mizzou grad, which means the probability that his real job involves something in the media is near or at 1. I would rather pass broken glass than be associated with the media.

SD -- first of all pretty funny. You are the first fusker i've ever met in person or otherwise who has ever said anything bad aboout memorial stadium.

Second, it's Joel Klatt, dicknose.

Own the north? Dude that shit is over. I'm not saying you're not going to win it once and a while but own? Ah . . . no.

Fusker fans are more likely to own something from Rent-a-center than their team to "Own" the north.

AJ,

Why fall in love with Jax? Have you seen the other options? El Paso? Ack!

Maybe San Antonio isn't bad, and I could take or leave Tempe.

But Jax, hey, at least the food would be good! In El Paso, you can't be too sure the meat you're eating isn't some guy the Russian mafia had chopped up and served.

Hey, Puffalo Phil (Nice, H/E):

While you're taking breaks between bong hits and jerkin' it to Hannah Montana on Saturday, turn on ABC and look for the student section. With all the hate going around, I'm sure we'll get our message out loud and clear about what Husker nation (and most likely the majority of the Big XII) think of your shitty football program. Or, you can just watch the Huskers destroy your crappy team on the field. Either way, we'll make sure you guys look like chumps.

I didn't go to the Sun Bowl in 2005 (I'm sure many of my Mizzou readers did), but from what I heard...it was a great expierence in a town that is relatively undiscovered. As long as you weren't in Juarez, you were OK..or so I heard.

Look, smack talk aside, we all know what the bowls are, and that is basically just a game of picking teams on teh playground. There is really no basis here nor there, and I'm well aware that Nebraska's pack of inbred 20,000 hicks would be attractive sitting at 8-4. (Despite having a horrible resume, which you'll see in the next column.)

However, in the big grand scheme of things..unless it's the Rose or the BCS title bowl...bowls are about expierences. In the end, with the exception of games that aren't in HD or are put on NFL network, bowl games are pretty much the same.

in that respect, Nebraska may be playing on 1/1...but Missouri or Okie state by going to San Diego or San Antonio get to go to two great cities with awesome bars and restaurants...both in prime time on ESPN.

Nebraska fans will basically only have the comfort in knowing that they played on January 1st. (And trust me...if/when you get to Jacksonville, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.)

Your jealousy over NU potentially playing in Jacksonville has been duly noted.

Blogger daddyact said...

AJ, not shocked that OU plays better in Norman. Most every team in cfb these days plays much better at home than on the road. As you yourself have pointed out, Kansas must be a better team than NU (even though they lost) because they would have won in Lawrence.

Actually records really don't matter, eh?

Obviously, 6-6 and 3-4 is better than 8-4 and 5-3 jsut because the conference makes you play at the other guy every other year.

Oh, and CU is definitely better because 5-7 and 2-6 is way better than 8-4 and 5-3, because they just won't let them play in Boulder this year.

You're ridiculous.

Phil, you're right. Memorial is a cobbled together mess with most of the seating in the end zones. All 88,000 of us just hate cramming ourselves into that ugly piece of crap. I suppose if we were CU fans we'd never have had to expand to accommodate all the fans that support the program. We could have added some modest end zone seats back in the seventies and had ample room for the 35,000 Buff fans that show up on a weekly basis.
Phil, I realize it's coming, but could you please put that thing away, or else point it in a different direction? Public masturbation is downright humiliating for you.

Just because it's kinda bullshit doesn't mean I'm jealous about it.

Again, I am looking for one person who can tell me that Jacksonville is better than San Diego or San Antonio. Hell, I'm guessing people FROM Jacksonville would agree with me.

Maybe you ought to get a bigger dose of novocaine before you come on here. Your nerves are exposed son!

But you sure can spew plenty of vile in your retort. Guess you have that going for you.

Don't be surprised when the kiddy Buffs come into memorial stadium onto Dr. O field and have their day in the sun. I sure hear alot of self served crowing going on from the big red faithful.

Unfortunately, we have turned that corner once again when the shear pompousness is the act of the day for you fuskers.

Don't know how we do it, but the stadium will be in shock in the

Oh god...here it comes,

The inevitible delisions of grandeur from Husker nation are back. Are you all serious right now? It's amazing how fast a fanbase can go from widespread apathy and overall acceptance of how truly shitty your team is, to now, where it's "oh well, the refs fucked us in OUR stadium against Mizzou" and that you're suddenly light years ahead of the Buffs and everyone else in the North. And no...back-to-back wins over the dipshit Sunflower twins does not give you credibility to back up all of your bullshit.

So go ahead, keep talking shit about how truly horrible CU is, we've struggled all season after a painful visit from the injury bug, but you forget that we actually have a win over a ranked team this year. Something you ambitious fucks haven't done in damn near a decade. Plus, wasn't it a 5-win CU team about this time last year that tattooed a fat 65 points all over your shitty pinkshirts at "folsom prison"? (Speaking of which, funny to hear Husker fans talking shit about bad shit in our past, when you come from a school that cranked out so many good samaritans such as Lawrence Phillips and Thunder Collins).

So keep pretending Jacksonville's in your future douchebags...red-clad hicks stumbling out of the casinos in Shreveport is all I see in your future. You ain't got it this year, you pissed away your one golden opportunity at glory this year the second Air Ganz threw that pick in OT in Lubbock. The Buffs will pull out a victory in Lincoln and all of you douchebags get to witness it...humbled yet again. Enjoy your destiny bitches: another painful loss at home, a bittersweet trip to shreveport and a winter full of NAMBLA meetings and Lawrence Welk reruns (or whatever the hell you boring fucks do during the offseason).

Out of all the possible bowl matchups for MU: I'm hoping for MU-UC, since Northwestern hasn't done much to impress me.

FSU had a weak schedule this year and probably will not be as difficult as everyone thinks they will be. However, the FSU-NU matchup would be classic but not nearly the same. Expect the fanbases to flood Jacksonville for a lackluster showing.

I have to give you the prime-time point. No one wants to watch a NYD bowl at 1:00 PM, and I'm sure everyone will be focused on the Rose and Orange Bowls. Plus, the Capital One Bowl at 1:00 PM would probably have a much better matchup, but at least I don't have to hear the ABC team call the GB.

Joel Klatt Mo Spaltt who gives a fuck! Just another former sCUm QB who knows reality, and that reality is Nebraska is far superior to everyone else in the North.

Bobby Pesevento, just another sCUm QB that I had to look up because just like Colorado he is irrelevant in the big picture.

Sorry Husker Engineer, I really thought you were AJ's mini me! No disrespect intended and kudos on the work. I have done a lot of volunteer work myself, service to humanity is the best part of life!

Been to Tempe and San Antonio, been to Florida several times but never Jacksonville and I really could give a fuck if I ever get there. But since it is apparent that the Bowl Execs are all fighting over our services and we can't back our way into the BCS where we rightfully deserve to be I can live with it.

Beefalo Phil, go fuck yourself! I didn't agree with you on shit, Memorial stadium is a packed in piece of crap place that should have been nuked not expanded. I pay extra every year to support that place so I have a right to bitch, you don't so again go fuck yourself.

I've been to both Jacksonville and El Paso and I'll say that if I had to choose between one of those two... I'd probably go with Jacksonville for the sole reason that there are beaches close by to spend time at when it isn't game time. In El Paso you have... Jurarez. Not quite the same.

Either way, neither place is San Antonio or San Diego. At the same time, neither place is Omaha either and I'm already tired of the weather and it's November (Dallas native who moved to the 'big O' for a job). I'm going to be looking forward to that weekend to travel and party in a warmer climate, whether it be West Texas or Northern Florida. Even if it's a crappy bowl, it's an excuse to get out of dreary Nebraska for a few days. Even though I'm a neutral Husker fan, I have friends who I go to the bowl games with every year (if the Huskers go to one), so I tag along to have a good time.

Better yet, maybe I'll be able to score some BCS tickets and watch my Horns play... wishful thinking.

**EDITORS NOTE**

1) Bobby Pesevento beat the holy fuck out of Nebraska. You might want to study up on your own team sometime.

2) Jealous is when the same team beats your own team by 50+ points 20 straight years. Trust me, after watching Missouri give NU their worst home loss in 3 generations, I'm hardly "jealous" that you're headed to the 9th most popular bowl in Florida.

It's annoying that you people get to hang on to your "We played on January 1st" line, despite the fact the only thing you did to earn it was to suck less in a horrible division.

Again, if I had to choose between "being a little jealous" and watching that 52-17 bitchslapping in person...I think I'd say have a nice trip.

BUFFL8TER AKA AJ,

I understand it is your blog but come on Huskers 4th???The North is shitty but they also dominated everyone except the tiggers (who I hope can beat what ever team is voted as the south champ) Highly doubtful but ya never know. I know, the Huskers still have the Buffs on Friday (not Saturday nowledge)
Wow stadium smack..Ever watched a football game at Green Bay or baseball at Fenway/Wrigley/Rosenblatt. It's not about the stadium.

The Huskers will kick the shit out of the Buffs. With all the injuries and young players, they are not good. Hawkins will be on his back more that a stripper at a CU recruiting party.

99.9% of the time fans begin their smack with: "Don't be surprised when.....", their team ends up getting an ass kicking. Buffler fan, call for you on line 1.

NAMBLA and stadium lines.....that the best you got? All this tells me is that you have no real confidence that your team can win, which is probably realistic.

Your only bright spot has been over a 7-3 Big East team that is barely ranked. You can claim that our only bright spot was an overtime loss to Tech. Whatever.

You were 1-1 (barely) against those Sunflower twins, you almost lost to Iowa St...in your own stadium, and you lost to Texas AM.

Three of our four losses came to the #3, #4, and #5 offenses in the country, which we held to totals below their average.

We have a much better offense than you. At this point in the season we have a marginally better defense than you.

I can see why all you want to talk about is what you did 7 yrs ago or what you did 12 mos. ago, because deep down, you all know that this game is going to be a reminder of days gone by.....just not the ones you like to remember.

We don't have to use the "head to head" argument, we'll use the logical one. We smoked the other teams in the north so far, and KU scored a garbage TD at the end. If we beat CU, then the rankings will look like this:

AJ I thought we were friends!

Why on earth would I give a shit about who mopped the floor up with my Huskers so long ago? Sorry boys but it is only a game and there is nothing I can do to change the outcome of any given game and nothing I can do directly to influence the outcome of any game so I enjoy it for what it is, a game. I can however help the University financially which I have been doing for the past 11 years, beyond that I am just a fan.

So back to reality, fuck you son a bitches! Runralphierun you fucks can't even get a decent buffalo to run around your field. That scraggly looking bottle fed piece of meat you ass holes run around the field wouldn't get a second look from the heard of real buffalo up the road from me a couple miles. The cute little baby buffaloes would stomp that gay fucking worm infested future belt into a pile. So go fuck your buffalo! And before you fire back! We have the gay Herbie and staypuff the dumb ass blow up doll as our mascots! Advantage NU

And AJ get over the 52 to 17 bullshit! So what you guys won a game we let get away in the 4th quarter, had the refs not been so one sided that would have never happened and we would have kicked your ass. Nothing we can do about it till next year now so I have to give you the one we let slip away.

Deep down I get this crazy feeling that I would like to see Missouri win the B12 just to fuck the system up again. Then I slap myself a couple times and get back to reality, your boys will get their ass handed to them by whom ever they play. Then they will limp into some second tier bowl game tail between their legs and get beat again to end the season at a heading downward 9-4.

We on the other hand will beat the shit out of Colorado Friday then go play in a second rate bowl game that we will also dominate and end up with an identical 9-4 record. The difference being we are headed up while you boys are on your way back to where you belong!

Nebraska and the 5 little Northern trolls is the reality you all face, you better get used to it because you can't do anything about it but watch!

Well unless your a sCUm fan, then you can fuck that gay buffalo!

Wait, you lost a "game that got away from you in the 4th quarter".

Dude...

Missouri scored on the THIRD PLAY OF THE GAME. You were down 31-7 at halftime.

The fact that you actually roam the earth and have the opportunity to contribute to our society makes me both sad and frightened.

All of this stadium talk is fucking retarded. Have you ever been to a game in the rose bowl, the big house, horseshoe, the old orange bowl, yankee stadium??? they are all oll pieces of shit, or 'concrete masses of squeeze shoots slapped together,' built a long time ago with the sole purpose of seating as many fans as possible. Granted they are not nearly as cool as those 50,000 seat stadiums with a grass field at one end, if we could only be so lucky...fucking retarded.

I'll give ralphie a little break for not being up to date on NU's bowl possibilities, but you should atleast know your own fucking team's destinations considering you are so sure you will win friday. There's only one of us with a chance to end up in shitty shreveport, and that is you fucksticks.

Jax is a shithole, but i disagree with the primetime spot. Personally I would rather go to a game played at night because I'm always so fucking hungover new year's day. But as long as i can remember all i have done on new year's day is sit around hungover and channel surf between games, and i'm sure there are a lot of people in the same boat. I usually don't bother to watch games in the evening on dec 28th. So ya, if you're going to the bowl game, i'd much rather be in san antonio or san diego, but otherwise i'd rather get into the higher ranked bowl and play a better oponent on jan 1, even if we do get our ass kicked.

And AJ, you're right, we do suck less than KU, KSU, and CU. Big surprise. But i'll fucking take it, because that means on their end they are saying, 'shit, we suck worse than Nebraska,' which is how it should be.

Good luck on overcoming the 17 point spread buffs, vegas obviously doens't know shit. i'm sure your two true freshmen safeties will show up and slow us down. I'm also sure your high-powered offense will run all over us. Beating West Virginia pretty much sums up why you will beat us friday, they are a true juggernaut, and shit you just beat them last week so it should be a good indicator. ISU and A&M must have been a fluke.

I read that CU blog, that broncoman may be the biggest toolbox who has ever posted anything on the internet, ever.

That right we lost that game in the 4th! Just like we lost the OU game in the 4th! If those damn refs would call a fair game we would be undefeated and ranked #1 which is where we rightfully belong!

I spit coffee all over my keyboard laughing at your comeback, good one! That game as well as the OU game were painful to watch.

Good luck in the Championship game, regardless of the smack talk I do root for the North and like to see everyone do well.

Are you really talking shit about us running a live buffalo around the field? Not only have people called it one of the greatest traditions in sports, but look at your mascot. You have a 6 foot Husker fuck puppet marching up and down the sideline...fits the mantra for your whole athlethic dept pretty well:

Not much Arrowhead hate here this year. A season makes a big difference -- watching the game next to body-painted KU students at Arrowhead last year, watching at my in-laws' house this year -- but I realize it's the Jayhawks who didn't hold up their end of the deal. When a team loses to Nebraska, they know their season is in the toilet -- that's the new reality.

Let's hear it for the underdogs this weekend.

Bad KU games have beaten decent Mizzou teams and vice versa. I think the media overplays the rivalry aspect of a lot of these games. Don't believe me, look at Pitt vs. West Virginia.

ANYBODY that mocks the "nothing to lose" philosophy has obviously never played a sport in their life. These are 18-22 year old kids for the most part, and it doesn't take much to either motivate them or completly distract them.

I expect a very close game at Arrowhead Saturday.

aj, you dumb fuck!

You belittle NU for beating the rest of the horrible teams in the North, seemingly without realizing that Missouri's entire season has been constructed on beating the horrible teams in the North also.

I mean really, what other program worth a shit HAVE you beaten?

Alright, I'll give you Buffalo as a pretty good team, but the overall record of your wins is a whopping 46-58. Take out the two decent teams on that schedule and the Tigers wins come against a collective 32-50.

Yeah, we beat a shitty division and it's the only reason we're second, but then again it's the only reason the Tigers are first.

The only advantage of the diseased buffalo CU runs all over the field is that it tends to crap all over the logos of both CU and the opposing teams. Kinda like how many of you sCUm fans crap all over yourselves whenever trying to make a point.

Fans all across the nation could be crying about poor calls by the refs. You are the only cry baby, lil' puss actually doing it.

Losers, LOSERS blame it on the refs!

And yes, please put Herbie in front of Ralphie. Oh Please, Please, Please!! She'd flatten that little turd, and quick! Take the gayness right out of your blow up doll.

Fair enough on Missouri "not beating anybody" this season. However, since college football is a beauty pagent, I guess you have to look deeper.

Like how nearly the entire team is back from last year's team that beat 8 bowl teams, including 3 BCS teams. You can also look at margin of victory and the fact that their stats are actually better than last season. Other than the Baylor game...they've pretty much destroyed everybody they've played all season long. (Of the wins)

They will earn their keep in the next few weeks, both with the Big 12 Championship game (did you know such a game existed still?) and the bowl game.

That being said, I will tell you what I tell all my Husker friends: Missouri may not be great..but they're certainly far better than you.

And quite frankly..that's all I really care about.

Heh

Cool! My team always wins unless the refs steal it from us.

As a Kansas grad, it's nice to know all those ass-beatings my guys took at the hands of the Huskers were simply a result of the refs stealing it.

Wow! This is fun!

AJ -- thanks for the props. I'm somehwat confident that my Sooners aren't looking past the Cowboys. They know it will take an effort equal to that bestowed on Tech to even get to Arrowhead and a shot at your Tigers.

Funny how people talk about play-offs but I think we're in one right now. We have to win to keep playing.

Good luck to your Tigers. Rivalry games can can be road-bumps for sure, but I think you're right to think that KU doesn't have the horses on defense to stop you.

Excuse me AJ? Are you trying to use the 'look at how badly we beat them' argument when you havn't played anybody?

Why does that argument sound so familiar?

I could have sworn I'd heard that argument before. I believe the appropriate response is to use the word FRAUD.

Gomer, the Grand Finale is January 11th (Or around there).

NE, you women and children killing terrorist bastard....The difference between this year and your last year is the fact that Missouri isn't scraping by anybody. (Except maybe Baylor..but I must admit, they probably lose that game in previous years and Nebraska didn't exactly throttle them).

Regardless, that fraud is about to put a giant Nike against your ass on Saturday morning. Hope you...as I"m sure you often do...enjoy it.

Um... ya.. so who's gay again?

...Cover your stupid ass Herbie, you ain't got shit over a Buffalo!

Sure, if the ability to breast feed and produce 7 pound turds are the attributes that you are looking for in a mascot, then I guess we just ain't got shit over you.

BTW, I love all of the stadium and mascot smack.. Why is it that both of the Buff fans that are left and haven't already turned their attention to all of the "other great activities" that Colorado has to offer, aren't talking about how your offense is going to run all over the pink shirts or how your staunch defense is going to shut down our lame little offense?

SD, that would have been a great point..had I not scheduled to shut the blog down for that very reason.

Nobody gives a shit about your team. You can have all the Gator Bowls etc you want, but the fact remains...not only are you a tiny spec of dust compared to what you once were...but you haven't beaten a top 20 team since 2001. You haven't beaten a top 20 team on the ROAD since 1997.

Til you do one of those things...you're fucking nobody. End of story.

Happy Hucking Thankgiving ya hicks.

OMG! You actually think Missouri is going to beat either Texas or Oklahoma????????

Well, Texas, maybe.

I'll be very interested to see who the tiger Bowl opponent is?

It's truly amazing how ponderous you've become after winning the North for two straight years.

Better than us? Maybe on the field this year and last, but better as a program? I won't believe it until the Tigers have won at least a Big 12 title.

Only three teams in the North even have one of those, and only one of those has repeated.

Better than us? Not in your wildest dreams.

BTW, aj? Do you know why teams quit on the field? Because they know they're beat. We saw a lot of that last season.

This year, I have yet to see any quit in this Husker team.

I wish I could say the same for the Tigers.

You my friend are just your standard pompous ass and the joke is, you aint go no reason to be pompous.
The big red is but a shell of it's former self and you are handing out blow jobs to Bo and crew like they are #1 in the country!

Sorry we aren't jealous about tagging sheep and humping cousins. Yes, we have tons of 'other activities', just not in the barnyard category.

The players will determine the outcome. You are just a big red Dick Head!

Happy Fucking Yourself!!!

Blogger AJ said...

So outscoring Texas in the second half and out-scoring UT 31-21 after the initial 35-3 onslaught is quitting? Ummmmm ok.

I understand "trying hard" (and having the north crumble around you) is making your team better. Fine..you were big fat quitters last year and maybe or maybe not you would have been better this year.

But before we go into the "you'll never beat ____ next week" consider this.

OU, UT nor TT have beaten anybody worth anything on the road. Only Okie State has beaten a ranked team on the road..and that was Missouri.

Everybody slobbers on OU/TT/UT, and yes..they are great teams that would be tough anywhere. But NONE of these teams have won a tough game on the road. Not one.

Now, with 2 months to buy tickets in the loudest stadium in the NFL..do you think Missouri @Arrowhead would serve as the biggest road test yet for ANY of the big 3 south teams?

I'm sucking down red kool-aid like crazy, and I'm sure I"ll be wrong here..but I'm sure I'm not the only one that sees a complete and total ambush for whomever comes out of the south.

We shall see

PS - Had to delay the column til tomorrow, because I figured I'd watch teh game and save a post on it.

Serious question here. How fucking stupid are you, exactly? It's funny because there were certainly plenty of Puff fans shooting off their pie holes early in the season when apparently both the team and it's fans were doing the talking...

Yes, we have tons of 'other activities', just not in the barnyard category.

Gee, if only I had mountains nearby.. Oh shit.. I do. If only I had beaches nearby.. Oh shit.. I do. If only I had 6 professional teams nearby... Oh shit.. I do. If only I had world class dining and entertainment nearby... Oh shit.. I do.. Next argument, fuck head 'cuz I guarantee I have you straight fucking trumped here.

Let me get this straight, I make fun of your mascot after you make fun of mine and I'm a pompous ass. You tell me that I don't have shit else but the Huskers when compared to all of the great things that Colorado has to offer and I'm the pompous ass?

Dude, get back to milking your masculine mascot and smoke another bowl.

Check your past facts and you'll see that none of the

Secondly, it was one of your bretheren fuskers who dealt the mascot card, and you decided to jump in! Trump #2.

Thirdly, who gives a flyin' shit what surrounds you, 'you' brought up the 'other great activities'!
Trump #3

Fourth, well, you are a fusker, feeling oats and your shit don't stink, and have NO reason to feel so. Pump your O, Pump your D, and pump your coaches. You and all your fans are back to their chest pumping, pompous attitudes!
You cannot deny that! Trump #4

The game is almost ready to start. Get your last barnyard duties done!

If you win I will congratulate you! If we win, husker nation will go casper the ghost, per usual!!!

1) the game is in Missouri
2) Mizzou fans have been buying tickets for 2 months, while we STILL don't know who will represent the south.

I work from home and can work from anywhere in the country. But I am here in the South Dakota tundra with a kick ass cold, and I call other people dumb fucks!
