Wishing Failure On The Evil Empire

Texas is a krillion point favorite to win the Big 12 Championship tomorrow over Nebraska and they probably will. But I'll never forget the first Championship game in 1996 which pitted those two teams against each other, but that time it was Nebraska that was the huge favorite. But with 2:30 left, Texas had a 3 point lead but was facing a 4th and 1 deep inside their own territory. You punt, right? When they broke the huddle to run a play, I remember jumping out of my seat and standing in front of the TV screaming, "You've got to be kidding me!" And then what would eventually become a youtube moment happened. Incredible. It's hard to tell, but the receiver looks up near the ceiling at the end of the run and then wraps both arms around the ball. It was the first time I had ever seen a player look at one of the big screen TV boards in the middle of a play to determine if he was going to be caught from behind. Anyway, I'm casting one of my spells on the Longhorns tonight. (Although I doubt if even that's enough to allow the Children of the Corn to score a single point.) Post Game Edit: Oh, my!!!!!! So close. So very close.

I thought Texas and Nebraska first played for the National Championship back in the late 60s? Texas won, of course.

Why don't you just move to San Francisco or some other gay city, boy? You ain't really much of a Texan (or much of a man either)

I love your comments on the "Evil Empire"! I'm kind of a Longhorn fan, but not diehard, so it's just funny to read the comments. Cast the spell and let's make this game at least halfway interesting!

Texas? Only steers and queers come from Texas, Private Cowboy. And you don't look much like a steer to me so that kinda narrows it down.

Bubear, I suggest you cast a spell on Nebraska if you want them to win. Your track record of spell casting seems to contain a high degree of double-reverse intentions, meaning, your spells seem to benefit the team you wish failure on more than the team you support.(see Baylor's record and your support of same)

So, that being said, put a triple hex on Nebraska, and they'll win by 20, guaranteed.

I love you.

Tsk! Tsk!

What a sad sack! The only reason you hate the TEXAS EMPIRE so passionately is because we are THAT GOOD! If we weren't you would be casting your "spells" on other attorneys that kick your butt in court!

Hook 'Em Horns! All the way to the BCS National Championship!

No Double Fake!!!!!

I cannot wait to see tu get to the National Championship, then they will be exposed as the frauds they are!!!!!

Anyone notice that announcer Mussgurger said, "No question what's about to happen." (He expected a quick run up the middle or qb sneak). After the long pass play the other "genius" says the call didn't surprise him. Mussburger certainly hasn't gotten any smarter in the ensuing years. Announcers are superfluous idiots.

Frauds? A team goes undefeated for the entire season, wins the Big 12 Championship and is headed to the BCS National Championship and they are frauds?

Get real and pay attention!
