We're all anxiously awaiting the start of practices and the season. So with that in mind, I've been contemplating potential scenarios when it comes to the Nebraska game.
Unless you're living in a 3rd world country, you've heard about the uprising in Husker-land and their big campaign to beat Texas. It seems as though not only have they assembled the kindling, firewood, and accelerant, but they've actually set the bonfire ablaze. (The game is in October, but apparently they've only circled one game on their calendar and the other games leading up to Texas are automatic victories. Personally, I'm not zoned in on this one game - I'm just feeding off the hype that's been laid out.)
For the sake of this argument, Texas winning both the Nebraska game and the CCG game is not an option. That's a no-brainer. So let the polling and discussion begin....
Would you rather:
1) Lose the Nebraska game during the regular season, but then win the Big 12 CCG - REGARDLESS of whomever the opponent may be. (Beating Nebraska in a rematch CCG would just be icing on the cake.)
2) Win the Nebraska regular season game and worry about the CCG after Thanksgiving.
Remember, CCG history usually favors the losing team from the regular season match-up.
