Season Review

Since we have reached the halfway mark in the season I decided to give each team a movie rating. Each team will be rated by the movie or TV show that best exemplifies where they are at this point. You guys are better at stats and figures than I will ever be so this is a different perspective.

In no piticular order

The University of Texas ---- The Hallmark Channel---

  The Hallmark channel can take the Holocaust, the Donner Party, the Massacre at Wounded Knee, ect.... Film it with beautiful people and stunning cinematography  turning them into a charming love storys.  Mack and his Tea sipper followers can do the same with any team they field. The up side is if Colt fails to make the NFL he has a long career as a Christian romance novel cover model waiting.

Baylor ---Joel Osteen ---

 Friends no matter how bad it gets just flash those pearly whites and know that God has a plan for the Battli'n Baptist. Hopefully it includes some Mean Methodist.

Oklahoma --- Kiss Me Deadly----

  The definitive, apocalyptic, nihilistic, science fiction film noir. Ralph Meeker plays the baddest ass Mike Hammer ever. He gets his butt kicked a lot but when he puts the beat down on people it is so sever they won't let you see it. Cool guy, cool dames, cool cars, but in the end he only gets to survive.

Oklahoma State --- The Andy Griffith Show----

 Andy once said, "Why is it that I always keep catching my pants with my own pitch fork". Mayberry a nice place to visit, but would you really want to put up with Barney?

Texas A&M ---The Titanic ----

  I really hated this movie, I was never so glad to see 1500 people die. The only people in the movie that had any redeeming value were the Band members that played until they slid into the Atlantic. The Jones is that big Ice Berg waiting in the dark, but I will still respect the fighting Aggie Band.

Kansas ---Star Wars VI Return of the Jedi---

 Mangino the hut and his pal Boba Fet Reesing think they have the upper hand in the north but I think a scantly clad Huskerettt will choke the life out of them.

Kansas State ---The Wizard of Oz ---

 There's no place like home.....Yes Bill Snyder made it back home, but he found everything was in black and white and he is surrounded by flying monkeys.  

Colorado --- The Big Lebowski ----

  Dude, lot of pot, lots of beer, bouncing topless chicks, and Slackers.

 Lots and Lots of Slackers.

Missouri ----The Great Escape ----

 Lots of action, great plans, and macho men. In the end, not even Steve McQueen's motorcycle can keep him out of the cooler.

At least he didn't get shot.

Iowa State ----Survivor----

  I have never watched this show and never will, most likely for the same reasons Iowa is struggling.

Nebraska ----Casino Royale----

 Is 007 really back? Could it be that Daniel Craig has found the magic that Sean Connery used to make the franchise?  The question? Is Bo the kind of guy who cares if his martini is shaken or stirred.

Texas Tech ----Wild at Heart-----

  I have no doubt that David Lynch and Mike Leach were fraternal twins separated at birth by a wise old midwife. Wild at heart is kind of sexy but filled with carnage, bizarre, almost supernatural events,off-kilter violence, Elvis songs and some strange people. Sounds like our year so far. In the end despite it all Sailor still loves Lula just like we still love Tech.
