And So It Ends

And So It Ends

College game day showed up on a cold Oklahoma day.  Lee Corso dawned the Pistol Pete head gear and shot two pistols and what appeared to be a sawed off shot gun.  The state of Oklahoma was the spotlight of the college football world.

Then 7pm happened.  When Oklahoma took the field against Oklahoma State, there was a championship in the balance.  At the beginning, it appeared that this would be a great game, one for the ages.  What ensued, was dominance.  After the game I talked about missing quarterbacks in the month of November.  I wanted to ease the pain of what to me, was a lackluster November.  Honestly, I wanted to see every team at full strength at that position.  The Big 12 is a quarterback league.
Now back to the game.  Two teams played their hearts out.  As disappointed as fans for Oklahoma State may be, there is no shame in the season that they had.  They exceeded everyone’s expectations. As for OU, this team exceeded most fans expectations as well.  I’ve waited for a game like this between these two teams for years.  Finally, it came, and that is something to be truly thankful for.
