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

    As long as that evil dangerous Shootout moniker is avoided.

    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.

    Well, Brown's defense really held up.

    Only allowed 634 yards. It was parent's weekend, so we went up. It's amazing, I get free beer pre-game as a parent, least they can do for $75K a year.

    We make the mistakes that losing teams make.

    Beautiful opening drive for touchdown...miss the extra point.

    When we are down 10-6, score another TD, extra point blocked. So, we are up 12-10, and we force Princeton to punt...and run into the fucking kicker, and they then go down and score. So instead of being up 14-10, we are down 17-12.

    Then we go down the field, go for it on 4th and goal, and drop a wide open TD pass. So instead of being up 21-10, we are down 17-12, and you could simply feel the energy leave the team, and Princeton then just put their foot on our throats.

    I know no one gives a shit about Ivy league football, but Princeton is a damn good FCS team.

    Edit: sure was nice to see my boy. I think he is still growing, I swear he's gotten taller, he might be 6'7" now. And he is down 25 pounds since I dropped him off. Looks great, and he made a great seal block on a long run. He's super happy, so as a parent, that makes all the hard work worth it.
