Back in the Saddle Again

I haven't written anything on the Longhorns lately, because after they lost to Texas Tech, they have played (and soundly beaten) two weak opponents, Baylor and Kansas. Nothing exciting. Yesterday, they had an open date. This Thursday (Thanksgiving Day), they will face (and almost certainly annihiliate) Texas A&M.

But the exciting news for all Longhorn fans is that yesterday, Texas Tech was crushed by OU 65-21. This means that Texas, who prior to that game was #3 in the BCS (Bowl Championship Series, the only ranking that really counts any more), has now moved up to #2, the spot formerly occupied by Tech. That means that as long as Texas doesn't lose to A&M or to their opponent in the Big 12 Championship game, they will play #1 Alabama in the BCS title game. That is, assuming Alabama doesn't lose either. It will definitely be interesting. Stay tuned...

Who came up with the rules on who plays who if they lose or win the third team behind the 5th ranked loser? Holy cow? What ever happened to if I win, I win?

This coming from someone who only attended football games because the band director made me.
