Random Musings

“Due to the Kansas Jayhawks no live mascot policy, BEVO will not make the trip to the game on Friday. It will be only the second time in 73 years for BEVO to miss the Thanksgiving week game.”

“In between Colt McCoy’s last pass, in 2015, and the first one he threw on Sunday, he made almost $9 million.”

“Charlie Strong’s USF Bulls are sitting at 7-4 and riding a 4-game losing skid with No. 11 undefeated UCF to finish the season. A loss vs UCF will lock in 7 or fewer regular season wins for Strong in four of the past five seasons as a head coach.”

Breckyn Hager is a great interview. -- Twitter

Rondale Moore would have made a nice Longhorn if it wasn’t for pesky Jeff Brohm. -- Twitter

Final Thoughts

I’ll be at the lake in South Carolina on Thanksgiving -- so probably not going to send one out Friday morning. See everyone next week.
