Are you ready???

Well it's finally here...June 12th...the day of the Digital TV conversion. It was originially supposed to happen on February 17th, but not enough people were ready, so President O'Bama delayed it until summer. He also authorized $650 million of taxpayer money to subsidize the cost of the $40 converter boxes...because watching television is apparently a basic human right, not a privilege...

Getting off my soapbox now. Go Frogs.

Fantasy Football Matchups for 2009

ESPN picked twenty games that it would want to see this year but that are not scheduled. While I am always happy to make any kind of list from the world wide leader, I am disappointed with this pick. Baylor, Really?? Haven't we already proved that this I-35 contest is really no contest at all?

Also, what is this talk about Tech and A&M? We have placed 2nd to Texas in the top 25 polls 5 of the last 7 years with Tech taking just 2 of the 7, and what about A&M? Their program is buried outside the north side of the stadium with Reveille. It shouldn't be a surprise if we come in second in the "Texas Rankings".

Baylor vs. TCU

BaylorTCUGiven Texas Tech's youth and Texas A&M's, um, everything, this could be a silver-medal game in the Lone Star State. Bears sophomore QB Robert Griffin will see his share of stiff defenses in the Big 12, but the Horned Frogs' 4-2-5 scheme continues to baffle offenses year after year.
