    I've always referred to it as just Texas-OU weekend. Simpler.

    As long as that evil dangerous Shootout moniker is avoided.

    I just saw an ad on FOX calling it the "Red River Showdown."

    Better than RR Classic, but still stupid.

    Is the sportscaster going to get in trouble if he refers to a high scoring game as a "shootout?"
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    It was the Big 12's doing. Pretty sure they were calling it the RRC. Maybe as the thing gets closer, Showdown. Yes more silly than anything.

    Back in the wishbone days it was the Red River Run Out.

    I thought they had changed it to the Red River Rivalry.

    Fucking A our defense is horrible.

    Holy Cross had scored 50 points in 5 games...and 47 today against Brown.

    Yikes.

    They should drop down to FCS, they simply are not a FBS team.

    Catholics continue our win streak against the condoms. We played sloppy but won, tons of bad tackling and too many missed throws by Book but good enough. We can get pressure by rushing only 3 which was huge but need to clean up the end of plays.


    I did not see much USC last year but have seen them more this year. I understand better the coaching criticism. They are a very talented team individually but a lot of glaring coaching issues and a total lack of adjustment. They need a change at coach. I also wonder if they need a new AD as the past decade there seems to be a lot of issues, and politics around them. Perhaps a proper house cleaning is in order. Historically there are always tons of former players on both sides when this rivalry is played. There was a noticeable lack of former sc players this year relative years past. Maybe a one time thing but if the former players disengage it is a sign of something stinks.
