Carpe diem -- that is, enjoying it while I can

UPDATE: In case you're wondering why I seem rather pessimistic about OU's chances of holding onto that top spot, check out some of the teams remaining between OU and a national championship:
  • Texas, currently ranked #5, at the Texas State Fair.
  • Kansas, currently ranked #16, in Norman.
  • Texas Tech, currently ranked #7, in Norman.
  • Oklahoma State, currently ranked #22 and on its way up the rankings, in Stillwater.
  • The Big 12 North champion, most likely Missouri, currently ranked #4, in Kansas City.
  • Whoever is the other last team standing come kickoff of the BCS title game.
I'll tell you a secret: one of those games, they gonna lose. Don't know which one because I genuinely think OU is better than any of those teams other than that last one, and so it'll be the game where they come out at something less than their best against a team that's almost as good as they are and they catch a couple of critical bad breaks. But you know it's gonna happen somewhere along the way.

Here's hoping that's no more than 12 more nights! -JohnGallop

Whoever is the other last team standing come kickoff...better hope it isn't Boise State.

But then occasionally, someone goes through unscathed. Unlikely, but I'm still hoping

Kenny, I'd be sympathetic, except Texas's schedule is harder. In order: CO, #1 OK,#4 MO,#22 OKST,#7TT,Baylor,#16 KS,A&M, then Big 12 North champion, then a bowl. -JohnGallop
