I picked Texas a month ago (I also picked Penn State by a field goal, but who’s keeping score? Of course, I also said OSU would win big and Ted Ginn Jr. would have a big game. Man, I need to be betting on these games!). I’ve been going back and forth with my brother-in-law about this game. He said USC by 14. I said no fricken way, Texas by 8. In the end, I took Texas and the points. Like I said, I love being right.
Oh, and let’s all welcome Matt Leinhart to the “Kellen Winslow Jr. Sore Loser Club.” After the Buckeyes beat Miami for the 2002 National Championship, Kellen Winslow Jr. said, “They didn’t beat us, we beat ourselves. We’re the best team in the country. They’re not. We just beat ourselves. We didn’t execute.” Leinhart told Holly Rowe, “I still think we’re the better team.” Welcome to the club, Matt.
Classy, the two of them.
