    I did not see a topic, but for all you Big XII fans and College Football fans in general, the 11th top 5 team has gone down to an unranked as Tech beats Oklahoma.

    This game has MAJOR BCS implications as Oklahoma has essentially lost its chance at the Natl Championship. Also, remember, that now both Oklahoma and Texas have 2 loses. If Oklahoma loses to Oklahoma State and the Horns beat the Aggies, UT will jump over Oklahoma into the Big XII championship game. Two problems for the Sooners are that their starting QB looked to go out early tonight with a concussion and then right at the end, their best player of the day Demarco Murray seemed to hurt his knee and had to be helped off.

    Last year UT, with a Freshman QB, beat OU, but then lost their QB in the late in the season and lost out, giving the Big XII South to the Sooners. Will we perhaps see a role reversal this year?

    i fear this is the first domino to fall which will lead to OSU being back in the title game.

    Lots of dominoes would have to fall. Kansas or Missouri lose next week. Then the winner of that game loses to Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game. Then West Virginia would have to lose to either UConn or Pittsburgh.

    I am thrilled about this win only for selfish reason's. I dont like either team, but I work with an Oklahoma grad and this is a quote taken from an email he sent me earlier this week...

    Oh how wrong he was!!!

    Remember, Oklahoma has to first get there. They must either win or have a UT loss.

    The BCS is dead........the computer is shorting out and throwing sparks over all these upsets and parody in college football.

    Just shoot the damn thing and put it out of it's misery and give us our playoff system already!

    Honestly, can anybody really sit here and say "wow, those 2 teams are clearly the best teams in the country".......I don't even know who the hell are the best 5 teams in the country.

    yeah, except the BCS folks love this. more attention paid on a week-to-week basis to the college football landscape and the BCS means more money and more hype and etc. so they have no reason to change. and i'm glad. hooray for the BCS! :splits:

    And let the domino's keep falling. It was such a fun game to be at, especially with the way OU fans thought it was going to be a quick and easy victory. Tech wanted to win that game no matter what, and it showed.

    YUP... Even I will have to give Tech props for this one.. The best part was I didn't have to listen to 'Boomer Sooner' every freakin' 3rd minute...

    Of course I hope A&M beats Texas, but by the same token I am looking at this game as a 'farewell to Fran'......... and good riddance.

    Is Crabtree not extremely impressive? Reminds me of Chad Johnson. He seems to have that fire in him, something I think that makes Chad Johnson one of the best in the league. He absolutely burns people with his change of direction ability. Very fast player. I was very impressed. I thought it may just be the system, but he is the real deal receiver.

    He has really impressed me from what little chances I've gotten to see the kid. Just what this conference didn't need a stud receiver in a pass happy offense in Lubbock.

    I'm really cheering for Oklahoma State next week and for UT to go into A&M and come out with a win(which shouldn't be easy Aggies will be playin for pride and for their burning desire/hatred for anything burnt orange)
