Hey, CThrash! I just wanted you to know that while I don't respond to your key match ups, I do read them every week with interest.
I don't usually recall too many of the bulls and what there usual performances are, but Crosswired is hard to forget. Ryan's been doing fairly well lately, so I wouldn't be surprised if we saw him ride this weekend.
If Crosswired has a pretty fair trip, Ryan McConnell could definitely be in the low 90s on him. I thought the bull was pretty junky with Mike Lee towards the end of the ride in OKC. He started off ok, but he kinda dumped him right before the end of the eight seconds. That's the main reason I picked the bull. He throws so much out there to get the riders off.
I just hope Hebert's Red Bone gets in the draw. He is the second alternate right now, and he is going to be a good one.
Thanks for the comments by the way. I'm looking forward to seeing if Roberto has any others to add.
I'll Make You Famous won the NBBA event in Lufkin last weekend with a score over 90 points. The NBBA is basically the ABBI of the CBR, and there were a lot of great young bulls there last weekend. He should be pretty solid.
I don't know anything about Last Call, but the other Cody might know more.
As for Red Bone, he belongs to my good buddy, Cody Hebert. I've seen him out at Cody's place, and I've seen a few videos of him bucking. He is a 4-year old this year, and he has the potential to be a permanent fixture in the short-go round. You never know how they will react to the bright lights, but he should be a rank one.

Last call is a son of houdini that won the american heratige futurity, stephenville spring spectacular and winnie, tx he has alot of kick and is around to the left and honestly looks like a ton of fun to get on
Everybody wants to be number one, but very few will put in the work to getting there
Like you said, Crosswired was outstanding last night. That's one of the rankest trips I've seen all season from any bull. I was impressed. I also thought Hebee Gebee and Range War backed up their good performances in OKC with another one last night.
Lastly, I noticed Red Bone (the bull in my avatar by the way) is on the list of short-go bulls. That's odd for a 4-year old making his BFTS debut, but I guess Cody Lambert figured he might as well buck him since Cody Hebert hauled him up there. I'm VERY excited to see his out in the short-go tonight. I hope I haven't talked him up to much.

Crosswired made his debut in the short go in Grand Rapids although he had been to some lower tier events previously. Hope Red Bone shows his stuff today. Obviously Lambert sees great potential there to put him in that position.
I also liked Neon Ghost, the bull JB slapped. Score was 44.75. If JB hadn't made those two slaps recently, he'd be sitting pretty right now.
I also like that bull, Bo Jammin', but during his last two outs he has stumbled or fouled himself leaving the gate. Hopefully he'll get over that.
Well, Red Bone had an awful out in last night's short-go round. I was happy to see him in the short-go, but I wish they would have eased him into things a little more. Unfortunately, he has had that trip before. I'm just wondering if he wears himself out in the chutes sometimes.
But I've definitely seen the good Red Bone, and hopefully he will get another chance when he is 5 years old. :/
By the way, I agree with you on both Neon Ghost and Bo Jammin'. Neon Ghost was awesome, and Bo Jammin' has a ton of potential to be awesome. If he could only have the trip he does on the minor tours without the fall.
Neon Ghost looked great last night. He looks like a fun bull to get on. JB would have had a great ride is he wouldn't have slapped him.
I was really disapointed with Red Bone. He may have done better in the long go rather than in the short go. Pete Farley really should have rode Red Bone though. Even if he couldn't win the round, it could have been at least a score in the short go.
