All in all, I had a pretty good weekend. I passed the Texas Bar Exam, got engaged, and celebrated both events with friends. Life was good. Life was real good. Life was good enough that I actually thought Texas could walk out of Manhattan with a victory. I didnt know if Texas would win, but I thought they would keep it close. As it turns out, I thought wrong. Unlike my own silly thoughts, most of my friends and family were fully expecting a lopsided beating. And, well, that's pretty much exactly what happened.
After the jump, and in the spirit of textsfromlastnight.com, I wanted to share some of my text conversations with the BON Community...like the last couple of weeks, a few of these entries were contributed by other BON authors.
(xxx): Did I really wait all day to watch THIS?
(xxx): They scored in three plays. Three.
(xxx): Kirkendoll blocking on that pass play might be the dumbest thing I've seen all season.
(xxx): And it's not like I have a shortage of plays to choose from.
(xxx): Are our WRs or the Hellraisers a bigger embarrassment.
(xxx): Our WRs. I actually respect the Hellraisers for being there tonight.
(xxx): When it rains it pours
(xxx): Or it just clangs off your hands
(xxx): At least we know how to fake a FG. Oh wait no we dont
(xxx): That's really the least of my worries...and it really is just a sign of our desperation.
(xxx): Our D is already making this guy look like Vince
(xxx): If there's one thing our guys avoid, it's finding open space in which to run
(xxx): Not true. Our safeties avoid trying to plug running lanes or cutting off open pass routes.
(xxx): KSU may not complete a pass tonight
(xxx): Why would they even try?
(xxx): I think I tried to run that fake punt in middle school during a Madden game.
(xxx): Did it work?
(xxx): No, I fumbled it.
(xxx): But at least I didnt run the play to the short side of the field...
(xxx): The announcers are wrong about only 2 of their players touching the ball so far.
(xxx): It's actually a lot more. He forgot about their DBs who caught passes from GG.
(xxx): We're still 30-6 over the last three seasons, right?
(xxx): We're winning in total yards!!!!!!!!!!!
(xxx): So this is just a fluke, right?
(xxx): Steve Moore, man. Steve Moore.
(xxx): Another penalty and Mack is clapping. I'd rather be watching a Justin Bieber concent.
(xxx): I feel like I'm already watching a Justin Bieber concert
(xxx): Can you believe this?
(xxx): I already turned it to HBO to watch Avatar.
(xxx): Sadly, that might be more entertaining than this game.
(xxx): Touchdowns are our unobtanium
(xxx): Is this is where Vince comes in to lead the big comeback?
(xxx): Nope. Colt doesn't either.
(xxx): I wish this team could play the 2005 team in a scrimmage. That would be awesome.
(xxx): It took KSU 54 seconds to score in the first half....lets see if they can beat that.
(xxx): But we get the ball first.
(xxx): Never mind.
(xxx): Wow. Just wow.
(xxx): In 2010, I know to just expect the unexpected. Except in the bad way.
(xxx): BON was just on TV!
(xxx): Did they just say you blog from your parent's basement?
(xxx): Dunno. Not watching right now.
(xxx): I think that's what they said about BON. Y'all just got burned, 2005-style.
(xxx): We just started a power hour at the house in honor of Gilbert
(xxx): Any special rules?
(xxx): We're taking a shot every time he squints
(xxx): This is rock bottom, right?
(xxx): I asked that same question to a couple people. They all had the same response: FAU
(xxx): People in this bar are laughing at us. At this point, all I can do is just laugh along...
(xxx): From MNC game to no bowl? That's ridiculous.
(xxx): I mean, this isnt the NFL.
(xxx): Dude, this doesnt even feel like high school...
(xxx): Does your big weekend make this feel better?
(xxx): Yeah, it kinda does. Sense of perspective, I guess...
(xxx): I was hoping you'd say no.
(xxx): Because I dont really have anything to build off of right now
(xxx): Their 2 star QB spent the entire game outrunning our 4-star defense.
(xxx): And their 3-star DB's spent the whole game intercepting our 5-star QB.
(xxx): That really kinda sums the game up, doesnt it?
