A Little Confidence Can Be Dangerous

I love my alma mater.

The Idaho State Bengals had a bit of a heartbreaking season last year, finishing 1-11. While it's true that they never held an opponent under 29 points, only once did they allow over 50, and in all but two games, they scored in the double digits.

Fresh off their season ending 36-33 overtime victory over Miss Porter's Sacremento State, and apparently brimming with the confidence that only a one-game winning streak can bring, they've boldly put themselves in a position to crash the BCS party by scheduling ... Oklahoma.

Yes, THAT Oklahoma.

To their credit, they've scheduled something of a "tune-up" game the week before, when they'll take on Arizona State. Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford will rue the day he decided to stay on for his senior year. If you think a Gator is tough, Sammy, wait 'til you face a hungry Bengal tiger.

This is the headline on Idaho State's web page:

Apparently Florida Was Not Available ... Bengals to Take on Oklahoma in Football

Unfortunately, the game is in Norman, and the pansy-ass chicken-shit white-bread-eatin' Sooners were too scared to agree to a "home and away" series. Pussies.

Go Bengals. Chase the dream.
