Cotton Bowl classic? Bama vs. Jayhawks Print E-mail
by Dave McNabb    Wed, Oct 31, 2007, 12:00 pm

The best Cotton Bowl Classic matchup likely is a Kansas-fueled crowd against Alabama and first-year coach Nick Saban.

The Jan. 1 tilt is setting its sights on the Kansas-Missouri loser against (A) Alabama (B) Arkansas (C) Auburn.

The Cotton, which had Nebraska vs. Auburn last year, is hoping the SEC doesn't fall apart and have to send Auburn back again. Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville likely will leave as he's pretty much a solid back-up plan on a host expected college openings.

If Arkansas doesn't implode, the Razorbacks (5-2) always make for a good Dallas guest.


The Cotton Bowl will be played the next two years in Fair Park before making their announced move to JerryWorld in Arlington in 2010.

For the record, new 67.5-million-dollar-man Tony Romo says he was not “partying with’’ Britney Spears during the bye week, but concedes that he was carousing in Hollywood at Les Deux at the same time The Trilling Tabloid Trainwreck was providing lap dances a couple of tables over. (Care to bet just being in the same barroom with Brit is an STD risk?) But hey, now that the People’s and the “Extra’s’’ and the TMZ’s are gah-gah over the Cowboys and their quarterback, we want to play, too.

A few years ago, my long-time acquaintance Emmitt Smith was kind enough to make yet another guest appearance on my radio show. I asked him for his thoughts on the kid who’d be starting at quarterback that Sunday for his Cowboys.

State playoffs: No SLC-Trinity rematch Print E-mail

There are only two weeks left in the regular-season. The hunt for the playoffs is winding down, but who will play whom?

There probably won't be a Southlake Carroll rematch with Euless Trinity in Class 5A Division I... It looks as if Keller and Colleyville Heritage will go DI.. 

Odessa  Permian ended Abilene's eight-year winning streak over Mojo ... but Permian would go Division I.. There could be a Permian-Trinity rematch in DI's third round...

Katy and Smithson Valley look like the DII powers from Region III and Region IV

Ohio State No. 1, Texas No. 2 ... in budget size Print E-mail
by Dave McNabb    Tue, Oct 23, 2007, 12:59 pm

Ohio State, the current No. 1 atop college football polls, also leads the nation with a $109 million annual budget... according to the Wall Street Journal, that includes a $75,000 ice hockey treadmill .. that's right .. a lubricated ice-like surface for skates ... but this is a school that has a $1.2 million annual budget for women's ice hockey .. which brings in $1,642 (in pennies not millions) each year (all in concessions.)


Texas is No. 2 with $107.6 million.. the Longhorns embarrassing stat of the day: $152,585 for nutritional supplements like Gatorade and PowerBars.
