Blackwell: Here he comes…there he goes

Our seats were on the north end of DKR, about midway up, diagonal to the back northwest corner of the end zone. It was September of 2015, a night game, and my son Miles and I were thrilled with the view. He had just turned 12. Before this game against California, we had only been to blowouts, so he had never truly heard an electric DKR before. But this night was different; this was the night Jerrod Heard's grandkids will hear about someday. Oh, and it will be quite a story.

Five Quick Thoughts: TX-OSU

Here are my Five Quick Thoughts following Oklahoma State's 38-35 win over No. 6 Texas tonight. That game had the makings of another classic in which Texas gave up a big lead to OSU early only to rip their hearts out late. Of course at other points in the game it had the makings of a Cowboy blowout victory. Ultimately OSU had just enough juice in the tank, and an absurdly effective trump card, to hold on for dear life when the Texas offense finally showed up.
