Once Is An Accident, Twice Is Coincidence...

First, I'd like to preface my remarks by saying everybody likes a good conspiracy theory. With that in mind, here we go...

Lee Barfknecht wrote an interesting article in Saturday's Omaha World-Herald http://www.omaha.com/article/20091219/BIGRED/712199807.

Big 12 Commish Dan Beebe isn't saying whether or not the Pelini Brothers were disciplined because of their angry outbursts at the end of the Big 12 Title game (translation: they were).

We've all heard about Bo yelling "BCS!!! That's why they made that call!!!"And Carl yelling "You should be ashamed to accept that trophy!!!"

The last half of the article brings up a couple of other comments that cost two other coaches some money:

Mark Mangino fined $5,000 for saying "You know what this is all about, don't you? BCS. That's right. That's what made the difference on the call in front of their bench--dollar signs."

Mike Leach fined $10,000 for commenting about "atrociously bad calls" and "the sham" of instant replay.

The common thread? All three of these teams--Nebraska, KU, and Texas Tech lost controversial games to......TEXAS!!!

As the old saying goes, "Once is an accident, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy activity."

Comment however you want on this. Like I said, everybody likes a good conspiracy theory.

Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, call your office.
