"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



This was a three-win weekend! Texas, Baylor, and Yale all won their games this weekend.

Texas, of course, beat OU. Another year of gloating is secured! And Colt McCoy is one good QB.

In other news, this guy had better get his phone number and address unlisted right now.

Baylor extended its Big 12 winning streak to three, the longest in its history, putting the Bears in second place in the Big 12 South, and tied on conference records with Texas, Missouri, and Nebraska. And it only took three OT's to take out the worst team in the conference. Sic 'em, Bears! And enjoy it while it lasts - next week won't be pretty.

And Yale beat Dartmouth, meaning they are tied for first place in the Ivy League with that school in Massachusetts. Yale converted on third down every time except once in the fourth quarter. That bodes well for The Game.

I'm so conflicted it isn't even funny. I usually end up cheering for Baylor (quietly, so I don't get harassed in the UT student section!), but expect Texas to win.

Sic Em Bears! I guess...

My heart is still with UGA, who got pummeled by the other UT and the Yankees lost so it wasn't a good sports weekend for me...

Oh, and I met your sister Sunday before last while in my stylish wheelchair!

Hey, Aaron - sorry about the losses. You've gotta take what you get when it comes to Baylor sports. Hope the healing is coming along!
