Have a great time at the game. We'll be looking for you in the sea of Orange!

Tom in LA, I wish you wouldn't make score predictions. It's not that I'm necessarily superstitious (well, no more so than the average fan), but of all the games on the schedule, this one scares me the most: 100,000 hostile fans in an iconic setting with the Texas mystique, playing a team stocked with the best amateur athletes that money can buy, and can we really know what kind of performance we are going to get from the offense?

Personally, I am not counting on the Cougars winning at all: I don't think that's negative, because prior to the Ole Miss game I felt pretty sure of a victory. I welcome surprise; I was in Jack Murphy Stadium for the 1980 Holiday Bowl with 4 1/2 minutes left I was sure my team was going to continue its streak of no bowl victories.

So I will watch every minute of this game, and hope for the best. If we lose, my life will continue. But the easiest way to make a fool of myself is to predict who will win, other than predicting the score.

Was the editor out to lunch when this went to press? The grammatical errors are driving me crazy.
