Keep your horns up, Longhorn nation!

The Texas defense never faltered and a true freshmen quarterback survived his baptismal by fire at the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP to at one point bring it a field goal away from tying the game.

I know most of my f-list doesn't watch Friday Night Lights. This season has been jaw droppingly awesome (Although, where are the Hispanic characters FNL? Last time I checked Texas was a minority majority state, but that's a different issue.) The season premiere had Coach Taylor encounter this crazy nut job at the gas station rambilng about pirates. The entire time Coach just sits there with this bewildered look of "What?" And who was this crazy? Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach, who has this known fascination with pirates.

To call Leach quirk is an understatement. When it comes to the college football schedule in the Big 12, Texas Tech is always this great unknown. Actually, all of Texas Tech is this great big mass of unknown craziness. The campus is stuck in the middle of nowhere (Lubbock), they have this banned tradition of throwing tortillas onto the field that students still do, and they have the equally crazy Bobby Knight coach the Tech basketball team. That school is just nuts.  Well yesterday, Texas Tech fired Mike Leach. Granted he's not the most politcally correct coach out there but wow has Tech shot themselves in the foot.

You know I never really got the fuss about HD television. Sure stuff looks better than standard but right now I can't justify the cost for HD services or Blu-Ray....but football looks really good.  Really, really good.

When Colt McCoy sends that football sailing through the sky, I feel like I can touch it. Now that's impressive.
