Who am I?

I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 9/4/2016

Football is back, and some called the opening weekend of College Football the best opening weekend ever.  They may be right.  Three Top 10 teams go down, there were overtime games, comebacks, and outstanding individual efforts.  We give a nod to an upset effort, and that of a so called Group of Five against Power Five 2015 College football playoff participant.  Greg Ward Jr. of the Houston Cougars made believers out of many college football fans in shredding the defending Big 12 Champion Oklahoma Sooners defense.  The 23/40 may not jump off the screen, but tossing for 321 yards, 2 TD, and no interceptions was the key.  And keeping his team on the field for 35 minutes, despite a special teams score that immediately short circuited his ability to control clock.  Greg Ward Jr. has defeated Florida State and Oklahoma in consecutive starts.  Will the Cougars make the playoffs?  I wouldn't doubt Ward.
