Okay kids, Colorado is our last chance to grab a conference W at Kyle. Before Tech, our chances of getting a home win seemed pretty bleak. While we didn't get the win in Lubbock, we did... hugs. "During the Texas Tech week, you could really see a big change in the locker room. There were a lot of guys going around hugging everybody. There was a lot of excitement." Hold on, give Trent Hunter a chance, he's a fish. "Some of the seniors … they’re a lot more passionate now than they were at the beginning of the year."

Seniors, that is so last season.

19 players have seen action for the first time this season. The motive is less throw-them-to-the-wolves and more whole-the-hell-else-do-we-have, but result can be the same: bad now, good later. Shermi knows “it’ll pay off for somebody. Hopefully it’ll be me." I hope so too, and not because $Bill lets Sherms say around too long.

Jerrod Johnson's too-soon start is paying off already. But Johnson can't take all the credit, "I really think I'm a product of my environment, the coach and players around me and the things I've been taught." JJ is only one man.

The OU game will be televised, but we don't know how, yet. Suck it up on Saturday and we will be on FSN; blow out Colorado and we are headed for a nationally televised ass kicking game on ABC.
