Great Game...

Jon mentioned this in the game thread write up, but it bears repeating: Mr. Corn Nation himself called into EDSBS LIVE this week to talk about tonight's game. Looking back at it now, it was a downright uncanny conversation:

Jon:  I'm telling you, it's going to be as slugging a defensive slugfest as you can imagine and Nebraska is going to win it by some crazy score like 13-11. Tell me why I'm wrong.

PB:  Because this is my year, Jon. It just can't be spoiled this Saturday night. It just can't be. My. Year.

Literally up until the final second, it looked like Nebraska was going to beat Texas 12-10. Improbably, everything went Texas' way on the final drive -- from the kickoff out of bounds, to the horse collar tackle to get into field goal range, to the senseless lob pass that barely hit the ground before time expired, to the 46-yard field goal that slipped through the uprights. When it was all over, Jon was exactly right about how the game would unfold, and would have been exactly right about the outcome, too, if I hadn't also been right: It's our year.

Admittedly, I'm only here (and not dead in a gutter) because Texas won, but since someone had to win and we got the ball last this time, I had to at least come over and congratulate y'all for kicking our offense around the field for 4 quarters. Congratulations on winning the North, good luck in the bowl season, and I hope we bang heads every year in December.
