2009 The Great White Hope Season?
Most unbiased fans are aware the the Tech/Texas game was a little funky to say the least. Another helmet to helmet non call ie. Graham Harrell, 2007 game; see older blog "Gotta you Ump". Money calls (game changing calls) going for UT. In a nut shell, I think the powers at be did not want to see Tech or anyone else for the matter knock Texas out the the BCS Championship game. So, lets move Tech up to the third game since they are breaking in a new QB, Taylor Potts, tellem its for TV. Then if Tech does start to move the ball on the opening drive, which they did, let lose with the laundry, which they did. If a 104,000 fans can't throw Potts and the Red Raiders off on the opening drive one or two or three of Randy's crew who slipped in under another head can. I am not going to go on if you saw the game on National TV you know what I am talking about.
You look at some of the other regular season games and you will see a lopsided scores and many of you will go brain dead. I will only say if the refs call enough money calls against you, taking away your momentum the roof will fall in on you and you will lose.
Well this brings to the big twelve or big eight plus four (until the old SWC schools start wrestling) its not really that big. At the end or apparent end maybe there was a fraction of a second left on the clock(.399). I just don't recall a football game being over and someone puts a clock on the TV screen which we have never seen before and declares it's not really over. Regardless of that strange ending the fact of the matter is the game was decided on a pass interference call that gave UT a touch and opportunity for a kick to decide the game. If you saw the movie the Great White Hope his handlers told him he had to take a dive in the championship fight. He protested only to find out that most of his fights had been fixed. Well If Texas can hold there own against Bama, them OK maybe I am wrong about this 09 season.
Oh! PS. on spell check the computer did not recognize SWC it suggested SEC. Did not the SEC throw out or sanction a crew not long ago?
