So the Sooners have a bye week which makes for a freed up Saturday for my normal fall routine. But here are a few random thoughts this week.
* note to T.O: While your accident was very unfortunate and probably even scary, do you think it might be time to get a new 'Publicist'?
* It doesn't matter who your are playing, but the Auburn 3rd quarter was some fine ball control football. I don't think I have ever seen a team keep the ball away from the other team for a whole quarter.
* What is up with the STL Cardinals? Melt down of the century?
* Notre Dame is a good football team, but lacks consistancy.
* Va Tech is a consistant football team, but lacks 'star power'.
* College football polls should not be allowed until the 6th week of the season (see above two lines)
* The Chase system in Nascar is still much more enjoying to watch than the old system.
* Delima note: Last Nascar season, there was a small, mostly unoticed change in the schedule that moved the fall Dega race back one week. Which now falls on the same weekend as the 'Red River Shootout'. This well be the first year since '98 that I will miss the OU/Tex game. (That CTS race at Dega better be a good one!!)
* While I love the idea that gas prices have dropped considerably, the price of Diesel has had little change. Not a pleasant thought when pulling a 36' fifth wheel 1000 or so miles to Dega next week.
* How does that coach for team 'Bye' keep his job? I don't think I have ever seen him win a game!!!
* I'll 'fall fertilize' the lawn this Saturday. Thats a scary thought as I have little knowledge of what I am doing. If the lawn turns brown this winter, I plead the fifth and blame 'Scotts weed and feed'!!!
* At lastly, Saturday Night, the camp grounds at Fall Dega is probably the best atmousphere in Nascar, second to none. College Football on the dish, Deep in the heart of SEC country where they truly understand the greatness of the game. and oh yeah, the next day is a pretty fun Nascar race as well!
