Getting to spend this day with family is priceless.&#160; </P>At bedtime last night my oldest said &ldquo;Let&rsquo;s each say something we&rsquo;re thankful for.&rdquo;&#160; It all came back to family, and being together.&#160; At least it did after one of them said &ldquo;ice cream,&rdquo; but we&rsquo;ll give her a pass.&#160; After all she does love to make us laugh.</P>It&rsquo;s also time to be thankful for what&rsquo;s become a much more successful season of football in the state than first thought.&#160; Sure, the Sooners had troubles in Columbia and College Station and aren&rsquo;t in the national title chase, but overall there&rsquo;s a lot to celebrate.&#160; </P>Either OU or OSU will play for a Big 12 Championship.&#160; </P>TU has a shot Friday at earning a Conference USA title game berth.&#160; </P>The teams&rsquo; combined records are 27-6.&#160; You&rsquo;d be hard pressed to find another state whose teams have that kind of winning percentage.&#160;</P>The atmosphere will be crazy in Stillwater this weekend.&#160; ESPN&rsquo;s College GameDay will ensure extra attention and a national audience.</P>When all this began, Oklahoma figured to possibly be in this position.&#160; No one thought OSU would, and Tulsa was somewhere close.</P>Let&rsquo;s all be thankful for the pleasant surprises as the final regular season action unfolds.</P>Happy Thanksgiving!</P>
