Oklahoma's 2005 Holiday Bowl win taken away!

Today the NCAA forced the Oklahoma Sooners' (don't they mean the same?)to forfeit their entire 2005 season including their game with the Oregon Ducks in the 2005 San Diego Holiday Bowl.

The penalties stem from a case involving two players, including the Sooners' starting quarterback, who were kicked off the team last August for being paid for work they had not performed at a Norman car dealership. The NCAA said Oklahoma was guilty of a "failure to monitor" the employment of the players.

I just wish we were back in San Diego with my adult kids so we could go to the "Gas Light District" to celebrate their loss!
Christmas in July! How long till the 2007 season starts? (September 1st at home vs Houston) Go Ducks.

Update: Oklahoma forfeits the game but Oregon will not be given the win. Oklahoma should be required to give their trophy back to the Holiday Bowl folks or put an * on it. David Boren Oklahoma University President says they will appeal the decision of the NCAA. Ever the Oklahoma Whiners! Ha! After their game in Autzen Stadium, in Eugene Oregon, there will be bad blood between Oregon and Oklahoma for a long time. It was sure nice to see Boise State beat them last year.
