Event Review: 2013 Heart of Dallas Bowl Game: Purdue Boilermakers vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys
I see that not only did the editors of this site (or perhaps Lawson himself) remove and replace Matthew Lawson's ranting diatribe that originally occupied the description above, in which he (a) exposed his football ignorance by bashing Oklahoma State's football team for getting a bowl bid with a record of 7-5 and (b) went so far as to bad-mouth the Heart of Dallas Bowl event, a charity event, as effectively being a waste of time, they also removed my review taking Lawson to task for it. I commented on Lawson's description and criticized him for not knowing enough about college football to describe this bowl. In his description he smugly insinuated that OSU, along with Purdue, was a lackluster team and that the teams were evenly matched losers, forgetting that OSU is a national caliber team whose losses were to other national caliber teams. And, boy was he wrong about the No. 1 offense in the NCAA, which dominated Purdue 58-14 (with 7 of Purdue's points coming in garbage time). In any event, I'm back to review the event which I attended and am happy to share that the OSU Cowboys lived up to the hype.
Event Review: The Heart of Dallas Bowl
Obviously, Matthew Lawson knows nothing about college football, which begs the question why he was chosen to write the novice and petulant "description" of the Heart of Dallas Bowl above. If Matt knew anything about what he was describing, he'd know that the 7-5 OSU Cowboys are a Top 25 caliber team, that they were only one overtime loss removed from last year's BCS championship game, that they boast the No. 1 offense in the NCAA and a cadre of future NFL talent, and that they finished only third in the powerhouse Big 12 conference behind two other nationally ranked teams. Matty is right about Purdue, however, and right, generally, about the bowls being a mess. But, hey, a broken clock is right twice a day. Here's hoping that, next time, the Dallas Observer gives the job of describing a college football event to someone who, well, knows something about college football, and not Matthew Lawson. PS I gave the Heart of Dallas Bowl 5 Stars because, regardless of the outcome, I'm fairly certain it will be a good show watching such an excellent team like the OSU Cowboys play. If I could rate Matthew Lawson's silly diatribe above, I'd give it no stars.
