Gotta weigh in on the Bomar situation at OU
It would be considered conduct unbecoming of a college football blogger for me to do otherwise. I just took a stroll over to soonerfans.com where the panic wasn't displayed as blatantly as I would have thought. It seems that they're moving ahead so quickly its as if they either 1) don't want to deal with it or 2) don't have to deal with it. Man, who I wouldn't kill to have that nonchalant level of success. This surprising level of apathy trickles down from the HNIC himself, head coach Bob Stoops, who was quoted as saying "Well, it's not like we just lost Jason White who threw 40 touchdowns or anything."
Wow. It takes some serious cahones to lose the starting qb on fall camp eve and not get the least bit chafed. He must get that from his former mentor, the ole ball coach.
When I left you I was just the learner, now I am the master
Thanks to an article at EDSBS I found out that Coach Spurrier's birthday is April 20. That happens to be an interesting date for many reasons, including:
1914 - Seventeen men, women, and children die in the Ludlow Massacre during a bitter Colorado coal-miner's strike.
1967 - A Swiss Britannia turboprop crashes at Toronto, Canada, killing 126.
1968 - A South African Airways Boeing 707 crashes during takeoff at Windhoek, South-West Africa, killing 122.
1978 - Korean Air Flight 902 shot down by Soviets.
1999 - Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold kill 12 students and a teacher before killing themselves in the Columbine High School massacre.
April 20 is also the birthday of two (more) of history's most notorious villians. Take a look for yourself.
1889 - Adolf Hitler, Austrian-born German dictator Your kamph or mein?
1976 - Joey Lawrence, American actor Woah!
Congrats to Tennessee and Florida State fans for being right! Steve Spurrier really is evil.
