Bedlam. Of all the silly trophies handed out and names assigned to rivalry games, Bedlam is the best of it all. Whenever I hear that word, I think of what it must be like to be in the middle of a battlefield, to just stop for one second, look around, and swallow the ensuing chaos going on all around, and then go back to throwing the sword around once again. In my yearly struggle to find a game to watch, I think I’m going to watch this one. Growing up, I loved when unranked OSU screwed OU out of BCS title chances by winning this one and wrinkling Bob Stoops’s visor. This game is going to be loud, drunk, silly, and fun. During it, I’m sure the players will stop and look around for a second, soak it all in, and think man this is crazy before covering receivers, blocking, or running around with a ball.
