Big 12 rankings, Week 2: The “Dumb and Dumber” edition

Standard

Last week it was “Tommy Boy.” This week, another great 90s flick: “Dumb and Dumber.” A special thanks to the imbed Nazis at youtube who make writing a blog including your videos TWICE AS TIME-CONSUMING … 

1. Oklahoma (2-0): Sure, Florida State, as usual, is overrated and plays in a conference that might as well drop to the Football Championship Subdivision (for the love of God, go back to calling it Division I-AA, please). But the Sooners looked pretty damn good. And those national title hopes I made fun of last week? Well, now I’m tellin’ ya there’s a chance … 

2. Texas (2-0): The Longhorns actually trailed Wyoming late in the first half before scoring the final 28 points. Other than learning Texas has a running back named Foswhitt Whitaker, nothing intriguing in this game. But Foswhitt Whitaker, that might be one of the most annoying sounding names in the world … 

3. Nebraska (2-0): Hey, Nebraska’s back, baby! If wins against might Western Kentucky and Idaho don’t prove that, nothing will. A lot of Husker fans remind me of Seabass … 

4. Missouri (2-0): Dominant performance, but it came against an FCS school. Offensive coordinator Dave Yost, who happens to rock the Harry fro, couldn’t go wrong this week. Now, other weeks …

5. Texas A&M (2-0): Quarterback Jerrod Johnson had another monster game with 399 total yards, including 349 passing and four touchdowns. He ripped the heart out of poor Louisiana Tech … 

6. Kansas State (2-0): The Wildcats handled mighty Missouri State. K-State is back. Just ask Wildcat fans, who are starting to sound a little like this … 

7. Texas Tech (2-0): What’s this 36-carry crap for the Red Raiders? The transformation post-Mike Leach is under way. By this time next year, Tech will be running the ball 80 times a game under Tommy Tuberville, who’s peeing in our Cheerios. 

8. Oklahoma State (2-0): Well, they aren’t 40, but the Cowboys manned up and avoided the upset with a win over pesky Troy. Troy put up quite a fight, just like this … 

9. Baylor (2-0): Quarterback Robert Griffin continues to impress. It’d be nice to see the Bears make a bowl, which they haven’t done since … 

10. Kansas (1-1): Have to admit, that was impressive and surprising on Saturday. Georgia Tech played like a team playing against a team that had just lost to a junior high. Just when I thought you couldn’t get any worse (2:20 mark) … 

11. Colorado (1-1): Guess those reports of the Buffaloes improving were a bit premature. Nice effort against the Cal Bears. Looks like another long fall in the Rockies … 

12. Iowa State (1-1): So much for putting up a fight against your arch rival. The Clones didn’t score until the fourth quarter. How bad was ISU? Why don’t you eat up and we’ll tell ya …
