Tonight the Oklahoma Sooners face Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. I understand what my colleagues feel today:
As I said when my Missouri Tigers faced The Crimson Tide last year, it's like watching your child in the Hunger Games; you're hoping for the best, but you know the likely outcome won't be pretty.
Speaking of those Tigers, tomorrow night they will face-off with Oklahoma's other team in the Cotton Bowl. We have our tickets and commemorative sweat shirts ready. Dallas is but a short drive away from OKC, making this bowl quite convenient. On paper, the teams seem well-matched, but I hope my guys in gold prevail.
