Thoughts of a millennial Dad from the intersection of work and life.

Hats off to the Oklahoma Sooners who clobbered Missouri in tonight's Big XII title game in San Antonio. The Sooners pulled away after a closer than expected first half to get the win 38-17.

The excerpt below pretty much sums up the Big XII season:
Until this season, Mizzou football was best known for being on the wrong side of bizarre plays in other team's championship seasons: Colorado's famous ''fifth'' down in 1990 and Nebraska's miracle kicked pass TD that saved the Cornhuskers' in '97.

A win over a traditional power to win the Big 12 title would have been a major step toward erasing that dubious distinction.

But the Sooners are known for winning championships and dominating the Big 12.

On the bright side, Missouri will in all likelihood go to a top bowl game- probably the Cotton Bowl according to ABC Sports announcer Brent Musburger. With as tumultuous a season as it has been, a decent bowl game isn't a bad consolation for any team.

Finally, just because I have to say it: so much for Sports Illustrated's 35-31 prediction. Enjoy the crow, boys. I hear it tastes mighty good down in Dallas.

But I'm a forgiving person. Less the esteemed writers become disconsolate, they can always pop in the video of tonight's game and play the Brent Musburger Drinking game.

I was pulling for Mizzou, so I'm disappointed.

But then again, if Mizzou beat Oklahoma, then the Apocalypse probably would be soon at hand. It's probably all for the best.

Fair enough. Kudos to Chase Daniel for averting the Apocalypse.

As noted (just in case the game still smarts), I recommend the Brent Musburger drinking game to soothe the sting for any Mizzou fans.
