Upset for the ages? Not really. Mike Gundy is still the coach in Stillwater after all. You can just imagine T. Boone texting visor boy, thumbing his diamond studded iPhone from the owner's suite:
I DIDN'T PAY $300 MILLION TO LOSE A BCS TROPHY IN AMES IOWA SHITBIRD!
STICK A BOTTLE OF HAIR GEL UP UR ASS SHITBIRD! FAT SIDE UP.
U SANK MY DREAMS! IOWA STATE? YOU HAVE LEFT ME WITH NO CHOICE BUT TO HIRE PAUL RHOADS SHITBIRD.
LET ME KNOW AHEAD OF TIME UR GONNA SHIT THE BED SHITBIRD SO I CAN AT LEAST PAY OFF THOSE SHITBIRD REFS!
HAVE I EVER TOLD U U R A SHITBIRD, SHITBIRD!?!?!?
It was a highly entertaining game, with big plays all night from Iowa State on both sides of the ball and RS Freshman QB Jared Barnett had a nice coronation. It's not easy to pass the ball on Okie State's secondary, but after giving up an early 70 yd pick six to Shaun Lewis, Barnett came back to torch the Pokes for 376 yards in the air and another 80 on the ground.
Paul Rhoads seems to be good for one of these upsets every year. He's now beat Texas, Nebraska, Iowa, Okie State ... and is happy to beat anybody you put on his schedule. Half the stadium rushed the field within seconds of the game-winning TD in a scene not unlike Def Leppard rocking the Meadowlands in 1986. All that was missing on the final play was Gus Johnson on the call: PandeMOnium in AMES! LETS RIDE A TORNADO SHALL WE? /Swan dives into crowd from broadcasting booth.
Here in live action we have A&M attempting to build an insurmountable lead on Kansas, which although theoretically impossible, might be good enough to hold off a 4th quarter Jayhawk surge, as the Aggies are up 37-0 score in the second quarter. Stay tuned.
Michigan is beating Nebraska 17-10 and nobody outside the midwest is watching.
Kentucky is making Mark Richt sweat a little, holding a 10-6 lead over the Bulldogs in the second quarter.
Furman is beating Florida in the Swamp 7-0. Really, Muschamp? Furman? Maybe it's time to sacrifice Charlie Weis on a rotisserie spit at midfield and distract the rednecks with a little Bread & Circus until Corch Gator can field a competitive team.
7 hours to kickoff ...
