WATERCOOLER CHAT: OSU WINS FIESTA BOWL, COLTS MAKE CHANGES

FOOTBALL

An exciting finish to the Fiesta Bowl Monday night. Number three ranked Oklahoma State pulled out a huge win in overtime over number four Stanford. It all came down to field goals. Stanford’s likely first round pick in the NFL, QB Andrew Luck had a solid game, but unfortunately their kicker Jordan Williamson missed two field goals (one in regulation and one in overtime) which would have given Stanford the win. ¬†OSU’s Jordan Sharp’s ended up pulling out the victory with a 22 yarder to win this nail biter of a Fiesta Bowl. OSU 41, Stanford 38.

Jim Irsay, the Indianapolis Colts owner, surprised everyone (particularly Peyton Manning) when he fired general manager Chris Polian and vice chairman Bill Polian. Irsay did hint that big changes were on the way, but Colts fans are now wondering what that means for the future of Peyton Manning. Manning sat out the season with a neck injury but has said he’s planning on coming back. The Colts, due to their miserable season, now have the first pick in the NFL draft which will likely go to superstar Stanford QB Andrew Luck. Luck is going to want to play (and not sit on the bench) so what does that mean for Manning’s future? It will be interesting to see how this all plays out
