Sports Thoughts…

by Mike Organ

The sports season is really getting here fast. I found myself working on football schedules for the predictors. The 2009 season is here whether we are ready or not. The texashsfootball.com website states it is 24 days 12 hours and 13 minutes until the opening game. "ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?"

It doesn't seem like it, but Jordan Peterson will be playing his final season for A&M this fall. It has been five years since he graduated from LHS. He received a medical redshirt for his first season in Aggieland. I understand he has a BS degree already and is working on his MS. He is quite an intelligent young man who is making the most of his college experience.

Coach Mack and the Horns are enjoying the lofty status that has been put upon them by the predictors. Colt McCoy and the crew hope there will be no major injuries to slow them down. The annual clash with OU in the Cotton Bowl most likely will be for the national championship. At the very least it should be for the Big XII BCS berth. But…….every team Texas and OU play the entire season will be giving them their best effort and each team will try different ploys to try and expose weaknesses. Both teams have to be ready to play a full game each week. That is something both have failed to do in years past.
