    It was his forearm that knocked Costello's helmet off, but yeah, it was close.

    It was late and brutal. The guy was down, forearm to head.

    I wish it had been called - not that it would've helped Costello, but could prevent a similar hit by him in the future.

    58-7, harrumph!
    Having endured 1972 which saw the Cougs ranked #1 by the late Red Smith, I am quite content to bask in the harrumphing of a 58-7 stroll in the park.

    Of course, for me it was much worse, as I was a member of the down chain crew, so the week in and week destruction of the Cougs was more close up and personal.

    Don’t worry Bob, the Long Gray Line will make sure you had wished you stayed submerged in your submarine.

    The Pac 12 is sort of doomed in football....

    The Pac-12’s talent pipeline at risk: Football participation continues to drop in high schools across the footprint...

    While in Texas it's actually increasing....Last fall, there were 4,000 more high school football players in Texas than in the entire Pac-12 footprint.

    On the plus-side, the nerds in California will embrace Tech-Football first and be way ahead of the knuckle-draggers from Texas, when the switch is made.

    As a football-obsessed boy from Stark County, OH I could not have moved to a better state as an adult than Texas; one football-mad hotbed to another.

    Yay Texas! First time in 20+ years I've said that, but the state has grown on me over the years.
    You there, on the motorbike! Sell me one of your melons!
