It was a real honour to be able to witness two of the most storied NCAA College Football universities the Miami Hurricanes and the Oklahoma Sooners.

I can’t say for sure that some of the young men I watched will become NFL stars in 2010 and beyond, but I am pretty confident that the Miami Hurricanes will have better success in the draft next year, when compared to this.

 

The build up was impressive to say the least with smoke, and more band than you could shake a bloody long stick at.I happened to have the Oklahoma Sooners on my side of the field, and despite being quite high up managed to get some fun shots like the one below.

I don't know the collective name for a big bunch of Sooners

The game was a real see-saw for Miami Hurricane quarterback Jacory Harris, who threw two early air balls that were picked off.
He did come raring back to toss three touchdowns and that was JUST about enough to beat the Sooners 21-20.

Harris looked good after he calmed down and got the nerves out of his system.
He was given a massive helping hand by his stud running back #5 Javarris James – yes a relative of U alumni Edgarrin James.
JJ ran hard and was devoted to getting that extra yard wherever he could, just like a young Edge when he joined the Colts.
I reckon JJ could be a top 50 pick in 2010 after positive reports prepared by drooling NFL scouts.

Watching the game at Land Shark Stadium was a blast apart from some idiot that sat in fromt of me and jumped up everytime Miami did anything good.
I swear he had poured a packet of Birds Eye chilli seeds down his pants, because no other normal human being would have the need to stand up so many times. We all know what it’s like to have a mildly itchy nut sack but his testes must have been on fire.
No I hadn't been drinking this was supposed to be an arty shot

    Hey. This is going to sound stupid but I was hoping to use one of these pictures to put on a credit card of mine (they let you upload an image) but it says if the picture is not mine I need permission. Its the pic of the smoke coming out of the U helmet as the Canes come on the field. Do you know who I can ask permission?

    Thanks!
