Wow. I have never seen a football game spanking with top 10 ranked teams like last night’s 65-21 trouncing of the Texas Tech Red Raiders by the Oklahoma Sooners.

OU beats TTU

Hats off to coach Bob Stoops and his team of masterful athletes.

Texas Tech’s dream of a national championship in 2008 is over. Most likely, Graham Harrell‘s dreams for the Heisman Trophy are also most likely at an end.

NCAA football rankings always seem to get interesting this time of year, despite the BCS, and this year is no different. Who will play in the 2008 national championship title game? No one knows. It’s a marketer’s dream, with thousands of fans sitting on the edge of their seats (rhetorically) to see what happens next.

It’s going to be a bit difficult to face my boomer sooner colleagues at work on Monday. As Mark Ahlness reminded me via a tweet last night, however, it can always get worse– just look at The University of Washington this year.

To OU and OU fans, my head is bowed low. The humble pie has been delivered, and it will be difficult to forget.
