Rice. 8-3. In Football.
That's, you know, maybe their best record in approximately a million years or so. They're in slight danger of being ranked nationally (very slight, but still). A bowl game is probably a given. They might (if things break right) even go to the C-USA championship game, where (judging by records alone, anyway) they'd have a good chance of winning the conference.
I think I'm going to go eat some still-live-and-wriggling octopus or something to restore my sense of normalcy.
Next weekend is Bayou Bucket time, IIRC.
