This Week From The Bench….
I know the rolled-out explanation was for the security of players and fans. Just like that new fire taco at Taco Bell, I don’t buy it. Austin is very far inland from where Ike hit. I believe other motivations were the cause of the postponement, such as fans not showing up to the game so $8 popcorn couldn’t be sold, hotels not filled, and restaurants like Kerbey Lane not selling stacks of blueberry pancakes as planned.
The Horns looked at moving the postponed game to Friday or Dallas before settling on the Sept. 27th date. The Hogs are adjusting to their new schedule. The expats look ahead to Alabama with this awesome hit by Sam Olajubutu from a couple of years ago. Sam is now in the CFL with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. ESPN’s Chris Lowe looks at Casey Dick.
Finally Oklahoma and Missouri highlight the just released Men’s Basketball Schedule.
Yeah, that’s Ike’s scheduled track for the weekend. The game has been postponed to Sept. 27th. So the Hogs will face Alabama, Texas, Florida, and Auburn without a break in between. That’s four top 11 teams. Ouch.
The Razorbloggers have their Texas Preview up. Hurricane Ike might make an appearance at Saturday’s Game. Here’s Audio from Bobby Petrino’s Monday Press Conference.
