    That's going to make for one heck of a kickoff/return.

    Man, I think it would be a disgrace to line up in the wishbone on the defense. Don't they know that ISU always elects to receive?

    I'm okay with it.

    Re: Texas to pull out the Wishbone on the first play as a tribute Royal

    If they run anything other than the triple option I will be disappointed. I love that play. I think that offense would still work with the right talent. Especially with a guy like West Virginia's QB.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    WVU's QB is not a runner.

    I hope that when they do this that the crowd goes crazy and causes a false start.

    In Royal's honor, we should walk off the field in a giant wishbone formation after we win.

    I had to search my memory (no easy task as cluttered as my mind is) to recall that TX and not OU was the first big school to run the wishbone. Long term, I think OU had more success with it. (just checking wikipedia, 'bama, aTm, and AFA all ran the 'bone successfully.)

    Yeah, Geno Smith is black and can move a little but he is not a running QB. He's a lot closer to Payton Manning than Pat White.

    Or ... we could send in Clara to keep Bevo occupied for at least until halftime
