Conventional Wisdom is for Feeble Minds

Last weekend, I had talked myself into being so satisfied that the Longhorns had just qualified for the Big 12 Championship game that I didn’t want to seriously consider whether they might beat Oklahoma again. On Monday I noticed that Las Vegas had made Oklahoma an eight point favorite over Texas on a neutral field.  As the week wore on I couldn’t help but see that the national media that cover college football—for the sake of their College Football Playoff discussions—were assuming that Oklahoma would beat Texas.  Colin Cowherd, who has a nationally syndicated daily radio and television show, has […]
