Traitors of the worst kind....

One of my favorite sights!!

It's almost time for college football to start!! OU kick-off is in 19 days. Ya'll I could not be more excited, I pretty much start wishing for football season within a month after the National Championship game. In all honesty by that time I need a break, I live, eat, sleep, drink college football and by January I'm ready to do nothing on Saturday. But, only for a very short period of time, then I'm ready for it to be back!!! Luckily I have Signing Day and NFL Draft Day to distract me a bit along the way.

At the Uiversity of Nebraska
This year I really got into baseball and that helped with the football withdraw a whole lot! And there was the conference drama that kept me busy. I didn't talk about it too much other than to play devil's advocate. I argued in favor of whichever side the person I was talking to didn't agree with. I could see the good and I could see the bad. I for one am happy that the Big XII Xish is still in tact, but mostly only because I HATE USC sooooo much! I wouldn't mind dominating a huge power conference.

University of Nebraska Memorial Stadium
It was awesome!

Anyway, it's been a goal of mine for awhile to visit all of the Big XII stadiums (and I was well on my way to getting there) when the separation happened....

When the traitors decided they were leaving...

A few sites around Nebraska's campus. The buildings weren't any thing unusual. But their were so many trees!
Do you see the metal one?

This summer our travels put us in the perfect position to check out the II that were no longer going to be part of our conference anymore. While both campuses were beautiful, and I enjoyed the chance to see them, I could not help walking around wanting to scream

University of Colorado Stadium
Nothing special...but, you can see the mountains. 

"Traitors, you are all a bunch of TRAITORS, I hope you win ZERO games in your new stupid EASY conferences!!"

A few sites around Colorado

There are a few things that stopped me from screaming. 1. I'm fairly certain Garrett would have left me standing there alone, and would have not come back to get me, until it was dark and no one could see him, and I'm pretty scared of the dark. 2. My brain tells me that I do want these traitors to win games in their new conference because I without a doubt KNOW that the Pac-10 and Big Ten are easier than the Big XII and if the traitors lose all their games it makes the Big XII look bad, I am yet to come up with the best solution for the Universe to punish them for their choices but I will. 3. There were more of them than of me, and I didn't want to get beat up.

The buildings and architecture around CU were great.
I enjoyed the little details like the lighting fixtures.
Plus you could see the mountains!!

Needless to say when The University of Colorado and the University of Nebraska decided to move on, and sever their ties with us my, heart broke a little. I am disappointed that I will most likely not get a chance to watch my SOONERS play in either of their home stadiums. But both campuses were gorgeous and I enjoyed being able to visit them while they we still a part of us.

Garrett and I posing with Ralphie!

(I scoured both bookstores and I was unable to find any evidence that either school belonged to the Big XII, I guess they are wishing they could get out quicker and are not going to acknowledge their last seasons with us)
