Colorado's going to be 1-8 after today; too bad the same fate isn't reserved for an obscure state college in Pennsylvania.

Anyway, Wisconsin-Ohio State's the last important game of the day, and it starts in about half an hour.

One wonders if the guy in the cubicle's going to punch in any numbers during that game.

Oklahoma 58, Kansas State 17, final

I dunno about anybody else, but it seems Oklahoma kind of stalled during the last quarter.

They put in 2nd and 3rd stringers at around 12 min. left in the game.

Kansas 0, Texas 43, final

Iowa State 41, Texas Tech 7, final

Wisconsin 29, Ohio State 33, final

Well, it looks as if the race for the top of the Big 10 is all in disarray now.

I dunno who's going to end up on top, but Michigan State, if they'd won today, they probably would've locked up the champion of the western division, given that all their remaining games are expected to be easy, but Michigan State didn't win today; Nebraska did.

Unlike Michigan State, all of Nebraska's remaining games are expected to be tough ones.....but it is a little bit closer--although still far far from actually happening--to a Nebraska-Ohio State championship game.

Maybe about 3-in-100, but that's better odds than 1-in-100.

We'll see.

I wondered if that's what happened.

It sort of reminds me of a Nebraska-Minnesota game during the mid-1980s, which Nebraska won, 84-13.

There was a lot of criticism about Nebraska "running up the score," but in actual fact, halfway through the first quarter, then-coach Tom Osborne was already sending in second-stringers, and by the fourth quarter, he was playing the water-boys and the kids who hold the jugs of Gatorade.

Georgia 24, Florida 20, final.

Too bad for the home team.

The largest Georgia booster club in the country is in Jacksonville.

It doesn't mean much, sir--it's still an "away" game for Georgia, and a "home" game for Florida.

It's inside the state of Florida, where the natives are likely to support the team from their own state.

The businesses of Florida, not Georgia, profit greatly from money fans of Georgia spend there; the restaurants, the bars, the gasoline stations, the hotels and motels, the tourist traps.

The state of Florida, not Georgia, collects oodles of sales-tax revenue from fans of Georgia, not to mention all the cigarettes fans from Georgia buy in Florida, paying the Florida tobacco tax; ditto for gasoline, liquor, and dining-out/lodging excise taxes too, that go to Tallahassee rather than Atlanta.

It looks to me like both businesses and the state government of Georgia get the short end of the stick.

In fact, they don't even get the end of a stick.

Ditto for the Oklahoma-Texas football game, where Texas profits even if they lose on the football field, and Oklahoma loses even when they win on the football field.

Frank, with respect, you don't know too much about Florida geography. The panhandle, and the rest of North Florida, might as well be South Georgia. If there are fans of a Florida team in Jacksonville, a lot of'em are Seminoles, but the city, itself, is full of transplants.

Well now, sir, I'm aware that Florida has several different regional cultures, and that those in the extreme northern part, and those in the panhandle, are different from the tax refugee transplants further south who are doing their best to ruin Florida.

Probably those up there have a close affinity with Georgia.

But I'm emphasizing more of the economic impact, which favors Florida wholly and Georgia not a cent, what with the game every year being held in Florida.

It's the same halfway across the country, where Texas harvests Oklahoma money, but don't have to spend any money themselves in Oklahoma.  The economic impact.

If I were a taxpayer in Georgia, I'd be unhappy about the situation, and demand that it be a home-and-away schedule, so that half the time Florida has to enrich Georgia, rather than Georgia having to enrich Florida every single year.  It's only fair.

Bob Barry, Sr. passed away yesterday. You probably aren't familiar with him though are you, Frank?

He was a good man and a legend in Oklahoma sports broadcasting.

I've read the name before, associated with great Cornhusker announcers of the past, but never paid attention.

"Bob Berry"'s pretty easy of a name to remember, even if one doesn't connect it.

He was OU's radio announcer for 30 seasons total and OSU's radio announcer for 19 years. He was also a sportscaster for the NBC affiliate here in OKC.

I grew up listening to him. He started losing some of his polish the last 3-4 seasons before his retirement, but, he was a great play-by-play man before that.
