Don’t stop ’til you get enough

Can’t get enough UT-OU coverage leading up to tomorrow’s big game? Here are some links to coverage around the country.

ESPN – Pat Forde takes a deep look at the 2011 Texas Longhorns and what a difference a year makes after their 5-7 season in his article titled “Do Adjustments Mean Improvements?”

Sports Illustrated – Bill Trocchi previews the game as part of their Game of the Week package while Paul Finebaum takes a shot at UT for it’s role in the pushing the realignment agenda in what he calls a power play. There’s also a nice photo gallery chronicling the game since 2000.

CBS Sports – Dennis Dodd says Don’t Mess with Texas/OU in his column about keeping the Big 12 and the Red River Rivalry intact.

Austin American-Statesman – Randy Riggs has a nice article about how the Red River Rivalry has a recruiting impact.

The Oklahoman – Berry Tramel equates the game between Texas and OU as a poker match with the Cotton Bowl being a card table where the Sooners can finally win a hand. Travis Haney continues the poker metaphor with his key to the game, turnovers.

Barking Carnival – There are several articles previewing the game, but I really like the Ground and Pound about how Texas can beat OU. Or this one where the writer calls Landry Jones Uncle Rico.

Bleacher Report – Jacob Keyes gives his 3 Key deciding factors for the Texas/OU game. Harsh Kalan also gives his 5 reasons that Case McCoy is the Longhorn QB of the future.

I’m sure Orangebloods.com and SoonerScoop.com also has a lot of good coverage, but i’m not a subscriber so take a look if you are.

For those that will be at the game, be sure to take a look at the State Fair of Texas’ website to look at the new foods available this year. It isn’t called the Fried Food Capital of the Texas for nothing. The winner of the 2011 Big Tex Choice Award for Best Taste this year went to the Buffalo Chicken in a Flapjack and the Most Creative Award was won by Fried Bubblegum. Descriptions below:

Buffalo Chicken in a Flapjack BEST TASTE - A buffalo chicken strip is coated in flapjack batter, rolled in jalapeno bread crumbs, deep fried to a golden brown, skewed, and served with a side of syrup.  Crowd pleasing appetizer or a meal in itself! inside the Automobile Building and in the Thrill Way.

Fried Bubblegum MOST CREATIVE - You’ll swear it’s bubblegum!  A light as a feather bubble gum flavored marshmallow is dipped in batter and lightly fried to perfection.  Decorated with a swirl of icing.  A final sprinkling of powdered sugar completes this treat!  It will blow you away!  Granny’s Funnel Cakes on Coliseum Drive.

This year, I’m finally going to try the Fried Coke. When I finally found it last year, they were all sold out so my journey continues. Fried Salsa also may get a try. Take a look at the Fried Food Review from Pegasus News below.
