The Ark vs Missouri game is a trophy game. It is called the Battle Line Rivalry.

3. Memphis
4. Iowa
5. Missouri
6. Oregon State
7. West Virginia (oh, what the hell, I’ve been back and forth on this game. Here’s the way I believe the game will unfold.... back and forth and back and forth for three quarters, then the Sooners will kick-in their running game in the 4th quarter, putting Grier and Company on the sidelines, and win it at the end. Losing 2 LB’s preseason who came back 2 games ago but just aren't ready to play, 1 LB with season ending injury first game of the season, 1 LB nursing a hamstring and can’t move, and 1 LB with a shoulder injury who can tackle with 1 arm just leaves too much to overcome. But I’ve decided to go ahead and pick with my heart instead of my head. Let’s Gooooooooo Mountaineers!!!!!

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

As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

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.
