    I met Mack Brown through one of my track official friends who was also a SWC and NFL football official. This was when Texas football was doing OK. Nice guy but I would not have picked hm out as the football coach in a room full of strangers.

    I have never understood why Texas isn't the Natl Champs EVERY year. They SHOULD have 1st dibs on the richest lode of ore in the country! (TxA&M and the others shouldn't even be in the running!)

    California has equal talent, but they have to be split between USC aad UCLA (like Florida - UF v FSU).

    Then there's ND, which should rake in every kid in the NE and MW of America, PLUS every Catholic kid.

    Why do you say that? Texas A&M is a lot closer to Texas when it comes to resources than Florida State is to Florida.

    I guess you've never heard of Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State.

    My two oldest kids graduated HS in Fort Worth. There are Texas kids and Texas A&M kids.

    Michigan played its first football game in 1879. Notre Dame didn't play its first football game until 1887 (and they lost that game to Michigan.)

    Speaking of Michigan, oh Army...two years in a row. Painfully close.

    The interception that Kelvin Hopkins threw at the Michigan goal line, costing Army a shot at a chip shot field goal, ending up costing the the Black Knights the game and will haunt Hopkins for a long time. He threw a similarly costly interception late in the 4th quarter against Oklahoma last year, which also kept Army from winning in regulation.

    Exciting Colorado come from behind overtime victory over Nebraska. My son is a sophomore in Boulder and got to rush the field. (Yeah, the fans of a pretty average team rushed the field after beating another pretty average team. Got to take ‘em where you can get ‘em!)
