Maybe you saw Michael Lindenberger's story in The News this morning about the Dallas Area Rapid Transit board meeting yesterday, during which DART officials found that DART officials didn't do anything wrong during the Fair Park eff-up that resulted in folks missing a big hunk o' Texas-OU. And maybe you saw this line buried in the piece: "Next year, it's an evening game, with all 95,000 or so football fans letting out just about the time the final crowds from the State Fair will be seeking to leave." Say wha?
But ESPN is reporting that The News's reporting isn't right and that "Oklahoma senior associate athletic director for communications Kenny Mossman said that no start time has been set for the 2010 game." And it won't be for months.
