It has been a good sports weekend.

1. Texas beat Texas A&M.
2. Colorado kicked the hell out of Nebraska.
3. Jeff Gordon lost the Winston series race.
4. Ohio State beat Michigan.

To make this a truly wonderful perfect idyllic weekend, Oklahoma State will beat Oklahoma. It could happen. I don't wanna hear you nattering nabobs talkin' smack.

In other news, mom is making turkey pot pie for dinner. Yum.

Well, not having a running game finally caught up to them. Everyone knew exactly what was going to happen every time Hybl dropped back. All Oklahoma State had to do was sit in 2-deep, double-wide and roll over zones and take away the deep ball. Combine that with jamming the receivers at the line of scrimmage and the timing routes weren't working either. The leading receiver for Oklahoma was their tailback. Hybl was checking down to the third, fourth and fifth read on almost every passing play. I can only think of a couple times when he had an opportunity to hit the go read. OSU didn't run the ball all that much better, but they were able to stick with it enough to keep Oklahoma on the sidelines when it mattered and forced their D to stay honest and leave passing lanes open for Fields and let Woods settle into the soft spots in the zone and pick up 10 to 15 yards a catch. This has been brewing for awhile, either Oklahoma can't run block well enough to open the field for Griffin, or Griffin just can't run the ball effectively enough for them to stick with it. Apart from rushing for 200 yards against Air Force (I think I could rush for at least 100 against Air Force), he hasn't cleared 100 yards all year. The difference is that OSU's pass defensive scheme was good enough to keep Hybl from punching it in. They shifted formation, gave Hybl different looks, ran the robber zone beautifully. They played some good defense. Er. This is way too long for a comment isn't it? Back to my hole!
