Wow, Jake Plummer got big. That beard is very impressive as well.

“They’re trying to figure out how to attack Sex…..Texas.”- Kirk Herbstreit

I think the term “Face Rape” comes to mind. Also anyone have an over/under on the number “Booms” do you think Herbstreit will unleash tonight? I’ve counted two already.

“The faster team always wins.”- Bob Davie

Really? Is Bob Davie playing the Siragusa roll for tonight’s game???

What in the hell was that ballboy doing?!?! Oh he’s going to get killed if the ball goes back to ASU.

“Do we have a reverse angle of his left thumb?”- Brent Musburger

That was one of the oddest plays I’ve ever seen. And it’s overturned! Amazing!!!

“We got a new Steve Bartman in the State of Texas!”- Kirk Herbstreit

“Everyone’s looking at him like…..Duuuude…..Oh no.”- Kirk Herbstreit in his best stoner voice

“When I asked one of the Sports Information guys they said they didn’t want to embarrass him.”- Lisa Salters

(Video of all of that in the works in case you missed it.)

“I’m sure he will be a first round draft choice over there, Williams, were you aware of how good he is?” -Brent Musburger
“…I think that was his signature game, Chris Johnson…” -Kirk Herbstreit
“Yah, Chris Johnson was phenomenal…” – Brent Musburger
