    That is a pretty sick line from Hurts. 300 plus passing, more than 100 yards rushing.

    How narrow are those sidelines at OU? And how to they get away with not having those brick walls padded?

    That's the honest truth.

    And here's another dose of truth.

    Man, if the Pac-12 lost to Memphis, Georgia State and North Carolina today, y'all would be eliminating it from the playoff.

    He forgot Wyoming, too. Vortex of domination.

    The ESPN/SEC spin on this has been fun. Peter Burns tweeted that all that matters is the play of the top of the conference. Of course, if everyone had won, they’d be thumping chests about depth.
    If you are going to portray yourself as the toughest, greatest thing in creation, prove it.

    I picked a great year to finally give up on football.

    I get tired of the SEC is such a grind stuff. They travel the least of any P5 conference. Bama and Georgia are legit - still not sure about Auburn. And we'll find out about TexAM this week.

    I was REALLY feeling good about my bet on Jonathan Taylor for Heisman with those 25-1 odds after Friday.

    Then Jalen Hurts played on Sunday.

    Which NFL team is giving Lincoln Riley $8M to coach them next year? If a mediocre clown like Kliff Kingsbury can get an NFL team to invest in him, then a coach that actually wins like Riley should be able to name his price.

    And they only play eight conference games.

    Hurts is the next Russell Wilson.

    He looked like a five-year NFL vet.

    And that Scrub Saturday "breather" game in November is a joke.

    It’s just when they get a legit team, it’s crazy legit.

    Clemson and Oklahoma are the only schools right now keeping up. I might be forgetting someone.
