.......never met him and don’t know if would care him or not. All I know about him is the things he reportedly has done and said.

Just calling it the way I see it, as opposed to some, who see it the way they call it. :roll:

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Speaking with media members on Thursday, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley said that he would say yes to a matchup with Ohio State if the Buckeyes hypothetically reached out. Of course, the Big Ten has prohibited its schools from playing in non-conference games in 2020 due to COVID-19 concerns -- something Riley acknowledged -- but that didn't stop the fourth-year Sooners head coach from discussing a theoretical top 15 showdown as the Sooners currently prepare to go for a sixth consecutive Big 12 title on Dec. 19.


What Riley did was what Jimbo should have done becaose it wasn’t going to happen anyway.

What I saw was the media just trying to create a s-h-I-t storm after the announcement the the game wouldn’t be played. As evidenced by them running around asking Fisher and Riley those type questions instead of making a phone call to Ohio State in the first place.

That’s what the media does, create a narrative...... :roll: :roll: :roll:

Exactly ...

Which is the difference between Tabloid & Journalism.

The problem, is that each have been conflated as being the other; and purposely so.

Peter Drucker wrote about the perils of promoting one into a position of incompetence..... there’s no finer example of Drucker’s teaching than Ole Rich Rod. :roll:

The book, the "Peter Pricipal" was not Drucker's....

Laurence Peter wrote the book....his notion was that people rose to their level of incpmetence.

I just read where a guy set the record for the “Longest Burp in the World”...... he was at a Hard Rock Beerfest and was timed at a little of 73 seconds or 1 minute and 13 seconds+!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Hmmmmm, Makes me wonder if there is another record he may have broken if had waited just for a little while....... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Some folks just wanna be somebody........ :wink: :wink:

Yep, the longest burp was me. I wasn't at the hard rock, but there was beer involved. :lol:

They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.

The fewer rules a coach has, the fewer rules there are for players to break.

See, well ya see, the thing is, he should have caught that ball. But the ball is bigger than his hands.
