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.
As the calendar turns from October to November, football takes center stage. While it's always too premature to discuss playoff options prior to Thanksgiving, the Oklahoma Sooners are in a strong position to win the Big 12 and that conversation thanks to a surging Heisman favorite. Baker Mayfield, a former walk on quarterback, is putting up video game numbers. But not against bad competition, but rather the best in the conference. This week in a huge rivalry game, on the road, against a ranked team, he lit up the scoreboard. Oklahoma scored 62 points. He finished the day just 2 yards under 600 (school record from a school with a ton of Heisman QB winners) with 5 TD passes. On only 24 completions, that's about 25 yards per pass completion. A quarter of the field. Before you jump on Oklahoma State's defense, against two likely bowl teams the two previous weeks, they snatched 5 INTs and held both QBs combined under 550 yards. Oklahoma is in good hands with Mayfield, and he is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
