Oklahoma lost to the Texas Tech Red Raiders yesterday 34-27 thus ending hope the Sooners had of winning the national championship.  And with Arizona's upset win over Oregon Thursday night, Kansas, who defeated Iowa State 45-7, stands to move to #2 in the nation behind LSU. If the Jayhawks can defeat Missouri next week and win the the Big 12 Championship game, they will play in the BCS title game.  Meanwhile, the only other undefeated team in the Top 25 is Hawai'i. The Warriors have some tough games left (Boise St., Washington), but if only they could remain perfect and get some help (i.e. several plane crashes, LSU loses 6 more games with only 2 left to play), they could play Kansas for the national championship.  They would certainly dub it the Barack Obama Bowl, since the Democratic presidential candidate's Kansan mother and Kenyan father met in Hawai'i.  The point is that sometimes I wish my mother would have married a Kenyan because then I could not only drink plentiful amounts of the water of life, but also kick ass in the greatest sporting event ever invented: the Steeplechase. Anyway, remember that episode of Magnum P.I. where the supposed NFL team was training in Honolulu but you could totally tell they were just using old University of Hawai'i football uniforms? That was an awesome episode. -KD
