    Re: Blum: Adjustment Bureau

    Great piece Blum. It reads even better if you play this as you read the last paragraph.

    Re: Blum: Adjustment Bureau

    The Adjustment Bureau's standard act will be to have OSU kill us and let OU take care of OSU. An ISU victory over #2 would go against everything the Bureau stands for.

    Haha...was hoping nobody would see through this.... you are onto them, so maybe that would be too obvious.

    Seriously though, thanks all for reading and for the comments!

    But if Blum's theory holds true and Rhoads was in cahoots with the "Men in Hats" in 2007 to save their arses, maybe... just maybe they owe him a favor. Like a mafioso on his daughters wedding day kind of favor, something that cannot be refused.

    Like an upset over #2 kind of favor.

    Exactly. OU has done their dirty work in the past, and they will do it again. We will be left to suffer for another year or two until the man throws us another bone to keep us busy.
