Here it is, Friday, Eve of College Football Saturday. Aside from the baseball-like scores of the two games last night, it was ok. Tulsa plays Tulane tonight on ESPN. Go Hurricanes.
Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. Byron Hout had a plan, but then got punched in the mouth. Just like the sportscasters say, there is no place for these actions in college football, or any other sport. I for one thought it was classy that Legarrette Blount didn’t try to blame the trash talking of Hout for his emotional break down. This brings me to another point, people, quit talking shit, you might get punched in the mouth. On a serious note, you shouldn’t go around punching people in the mouth unless they say something about your mother. Byron Hout could have easily said something about Blount mother, POW! Right in the kisser. It is Blount’s senior year, so I believe they should just suspend him for, let’s say, 4 games. We are all human. Well, most of us… and we all make mistakes from time to time especially when our emotions do our judging.
OU in Season Openers.
Oklahoma is 87-21-6 in season openers including a 43-12-1 mark when playing away from Norman. Bob Stoops is 9-1 in openers at Oklahoma. The only one
not at home was the 2002 game at Tulsa, a 37-0 OU win. This is the ninth time that Oklahoma has opened a season in the state of Texas, the first since 1993 when the Sooners played at TCU in Fort Worth. That season-opener is one of only two that OU previously played in the Metroplex. The other was 1970 at SMU in Dallas. This is the 10th time that OU has opened versus a ranked foe, the first since a 34-14 win at No. 19 UCLA in 1990. Oklahoma is 5-4 in openers vs. ranked opponents.
