Re: Josh Allen and the Bills

Yeah, for that Utah game I was an usher raising money to go on a choir trip to Hawaii. I wasn't allowed to leave or go into the bowels of the stadium to warm up (too young and stupid to not just do it anyway). Couldn't move around, either. It was torture. To make it worse I was by the Utah section ...

Re: Game thoughts (excuses)

Just can’t get the first down thing out of my head. We absolutely suck on first down and get in a hole ever series. Like, it would be difficult to call it so we get fewer yards if you tried. It’s unbelievable how bad we are on first down. What play do we call on first down? I think they’ve figured ...

Re: Cowboys Drop Season Opener at Nevada

Nice summation. It’s tough to begin the season with conference play. Would have helped to play a couple non conference to work out the kinks.

Well, it’s like Mark Twain said, if you don’t read the news you are uninformed. If you do read the news you are misinformed.

Re: Pokes in the Pros - 2020 Master List

Damn that’s an impressive list. I haven’t done any research but have we ever had that many at once before? Unfortunately I won’t be watching any of them. I am done with professional sports. A bunch of overpaid idiots who have bought into a false narrative or are afraid to speak up. Look at what happ...

Re: Return to Campus - Paused

Get those kids back in the classroom! The odds of anything bad happening to them are slim to none. If you are worried about the instructors, wear masks, distance, wash your damned hands frequently and don’t touch your face!

Re: 90% of COVID Tests Might be Wrong

I wish they’d get over this whole “follow the science “ The science has turned out to be worse than statistics. You can manipulate both to support whatever narrative you are pushing.

Mark Twain had it right. If you don’t read the news you are uninformed. If you do read the news you are misinformed.

Re: MWC finances and surviving COVID

Cool. I guess I never gave much thought to the finances. For some reason it surprises me that the Cowboys spend more on coaches than on the athletes. As an accountant I hate when a significant amount is reflected as “other”. Surely they could do a better job classifying things. Athlete meals are inc...

So basically he’s off for the next year.

I missed Larry Birleffi for awhile but Reece will become the voice of the Cowboys too.

Re: When the college football season starts

Because...science. We keep being told we need to follow the science. I guess it’s all Trumps fault. Not sure how, but that’s what half the country is saying. The riots are his fault too. What a nation of pussies we have turned in to. We can’t just take precautions around the most vulnerable and take...

Re: When the college football season starts

There have been some really good posts today. Glad to see some well reasoned thoughts. Has anyone noticed that our fourth largest city (Houston) hasn’t experienced the riots that other cities have? Perhaps it is because Houston is so diverse. Odds are, if you get pulled over here the cop will be Bla...

Re: The MWC is canceling fall sports.

I would love to have some Cowboy football to look forward to this fall. Since I moved to Texas I don’t hunt anymore (I tried it a few times to put some venison in the freezer but it isn’t really hunting here. You sit in an elevated box and shoot one when it comes to eat the corn you put out) But I d...
