And by extrapolation, other megaconferences. Listen to Bob Stoops (for once). Round-robin is the way to go, folks. And eliminate the silly championship games. Make it happen.

All is forgiveable, just don't mess up next time, guys. Besides, calls tend to even out over a game. There was no doubt in my mind Texas would have gotten a touchdown on that drive whether or not Young had pitched the ball.
The Bush pitch non-review was odd, but in the heat of the moment nobody else was talking about it, either (kind of like the Bush Push against Notre Dame where suddenly everyone's a revisionist and saying he broke a rule that's never been called).
What really bothered me about the replay review in that game was Jamaal Charles non-fumble fumble in the fourth quarter. That play was reviewed and by my eyes was a catch and then a fumble that USC recovered. It was funny because at the game they were showing the replay a million times and the entire Texas side had gone silent, knowing that was ballgame. With USC up eight and ball in Texas' side of the field and turnover momentum it's good night if ruled a fumble. But the replay guys couldn't overrule the on-field call of incomplete pass. The game swiftly changed after that.
"We are sorry we missed you at the USC game". Funny, considering the USC game was a home game.

White and Slaton went bananas. It was great, like something out of a video game. Both are nursing injuries but toughed things out and made big plays on a slippery field.
