Who cares . . . . part 3?

Sunday, December 13, 2009

Omaha, Neb. — Texas earned a trip to Tampa and volleyball's final four Saturday night with a 21-25, 25-18, 25-16, 25-17 victory over Nebraska in the NCAA regional volleyball final.

The Longhorns overcame Nebraska's home court advantage on the same Qwest Center Omaha court where they lost a year ago to eventual national runner-up Stanford in the national semifinals. This year that tournament will be in Tampa, Fla., and the No. 2-ranked Longhorns will face Minnesota one of Thursday's national semis.

Who cares about Cowboy's football any way, part 2?

Senior Destinee Hooker logged a match-high 23 kills on .465 hitting, and junior Juliann Faucette chipped in 11 kills on .417 hitting to pace No. 2 Texas (27-1) to a 3-0 victory (25-18, 25-18, 25-21) over Texas A&M Friday afternoon in the round of 16 at the 2009 NCAA Volleyball Championships. Texas advances to the NCAA Regional finals for a fourth consecutive season and is set to meet 10th-seeded Nebraska on Saturday at 8 p.m. Central.

Texas A&M Aggies move on in NCAA volleyball

12:45 AM CST on Monday, December 7, 2009

The Aggies advanced to the round of 16 in the NCAA women's volleyball tournament with an 18-25, 26-24, 23-25, 25-23, 15-10 upset of No. 15 LSU on Saturday night in Baton Rouge, La. A&M (20-10) will face No. 2 Texas (26-1) in the regional semifinals Friday in Omaha, Neb.

I know what John McKay meant

Substitute Cowboys for Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Following yet another Tampa Bay Buccanneer loss in their early seasons, he was asked what he thought of his team's execution. He replied "I'm in favor of it."

Bowl Matchups

Okay, Texas Vs Bama. Watch out horns.
TCU vs Boise St. again. Let them each play a Big Conference team. Both these teams are disappointed.
The Ag vs Georgia in the Independence Bowl. Freakin Georgia. What? Georgia is 4th(tied for) in the SEC. The Aggies are 8th in the Big 12. Why can't we play some little podunk school that we can compete with. This is unfair to me. My Cowboys suck and we draw Georgia. However, this is a much better bowl than we deserve. Two huge state schools playing in a neutral state near both fan bases.
Tech Vs Michigan St. in the Alamo bowl. Pretty good match up.

Stinkin' Cowboys

Who here thinks this group of punks can beat New Orleans, San Diego, Philly, Washington or any combination thereof?  Oxey thinks the coach should take a tip from the Giants and pull some starters, starting with Romo.  Is there a way to pull the coach?

UT-13, Nebraska-12

To quote Shirley Temple:  "Oh my goodness!"  Where to begin?  The non-timeout?  McCoy's cavalier throwaway with just seconds left on the clock?  The absolutely dismal play of the UT receivers?  No, let's talk about the AWESOME Husker defense and their lineman, Suh.  That defense just wreaked havoc on the Horns' offense and McCoy.  As a Horns fan (at least for this game), I found it difficult to watch.  I was waiting for UT to adjust, for McCoy to beat the rush and hit Shipley in stride for a td, for Newton to bust loose...never happened.  Then there was that weird finish.  Oy.

Contrast the Bama-Tebow game, which was really exciting, with the UT-Nebraska mess.  Double oy.  I hope that in the next few weeks the UT coordinators come up with a plan, because Texas will have its hands full with Bama.

And, McCoy lost the Heisman with that performance.  Too bad, because I still think he deserves it.  No doubt, he didn't look good in the game, but he had no help, no time and nowhere to go.  Two of the interceptions weren't his fault, in my view.  But that last sequence of plays was awful.  And absent  an errant kick, a penalty, and the visual accuity of the replay officials, the Horns would have gone out with a whimper.

While Waiting for the Horns and Huskers

Early in the season, Drumski suggested that Ron Zook should be fired from Ill-inois.  If that happens, who are some likely replacements?  As I recall, Zook went to Illinois after being fired from Florida.  In keeping with that scenario, here are 3 possibilities:  Bobby Bowden, Charlie Weiss, and Mark Mangino.

Oxey asks whether either Sabin or Meyer would go to Notre Dame if either wins the national championship at his present school.  I say "no", but he suggests that there is some appeal to making the move.  I will let him explain.

Oxey also observed that either Bama or the Tebows would have moidelized Cincinnatti or Pitt, who played a very exciting game earlier today.  Players are just in different leagues.

And I am obsessed with finding a defensive coordinator to replace Joe Kines, who is reported to be leaving A&M.  I wonder if the d-coordnator from TCU would consider a move.

Does Tebow seem a little subdued today?

This just in:  Arizona just beat the Condoms.  YAY!

Heisman Talk

Alabama and the Tebows are playing right now and Bama is on top.  QB McELroy and running back Ingram are playing well.  For the last week or so, I have been confident that Colt McCoy will win the Heisman, deservedly so, but color announcer, Gary Danielson, just said something disturbing:  he said that he has a feeling that Heisman voters would like to see someone other than a quarterback win this year.  WHAT?  That is the most craptastic reason for not voting for someone that I have ever heard.  I may succumb to the east cost conspiracy theory if McCoy doesn't win.
