Damn! That Texas-Texas Tech game was really good. Not quite up to the standard of the Boise State-Oklahoma contest in the Fiesta Bowl back in 2006 -- what could be? -- but remarkably close. I still have animus against both teams. Texas, because their whining coach cost Cal a Rose Bowl birth, and Texas Tech, because they took advantage of Cal not preparing mentally for the Holiday Bowl berth they ended up getting as a consolation prize. But I'll always root for the underdog when I don't have a strong interest in either team. And Mike Leach is such an interesting coach that I've been pulling for him to triumph finally over the Big 12 bullies. Of course, next week they play a very good Oklahoma State team, so the high might last that long. Tonight, though, it's safe to say that Lubbock is going to be consumed by bliss.
