    Re: The Oklahoma Sooners Football Thread

    It was a good game to watch other than some bad officiating at times. Despite some of the calls, OU had the opportunity to win the game. We let Texas hang in the game in the first half. Our defense was really hurt when our MLB Ryan Reynolds tore up his knee. He is out for the year.

    Looks like Yoda had the score right - just the teams backwards.

    OSU is looking kind of tough against Mizzou right now.

    TYPO!! Alpha. It was supposed to read Oklahoma 35. Texas 45. The numbers, inexplicably, were swapped. Who runs this site?! I want answers!........Yeah, that's what happened.

    It looks like Alpha, makers and myself need to "Drink More Makers". All of our teams found a way to lose.

    With #1,3 and 4 losing today, NOW who should be ranked #1? Alabama? They didn't even play!

    OU has rebounded and are hoping for a Texas loss somewhere along the line.

    It will be interesting to see how the Big 12 shakes out now.

    Go OU!

    FYI,


    • Texas Lost to Texas Tech
    • Texas Barely Beat Oklahoma State AT HOME by just four points.


    Oklahoma in back to back games destroyed Oklahoma State by 20 points and Obliterated that Texas Tech team by much more.

    How about that offensive line? We need some of those guys on our team.

    Yep, Phil Loadholt is heavier than any of our O-linemen...and he lost 30 pounds since last year!

    I have no connection whatsoever to either school, but it seems to me that any argument that Oklahoma deserves to be in the title game over Texas is patently absurd. They played on a neutral field and Texas won. That should be the beginning, middle and end of the discussion.

    Spot on post. The BCS is more often than not, a joke. When is the NCAA going to wake up and get some sort of playoff system in place?? There is a huge window of time between the end of the regular season and the Bowl games that can easily be utilized. Bowl games themselves can be used if that's the sticking point, but something needs to be set up to end the teams that are denied a chance at the title because they are .0000000001 points behind the team in front of them in the BCS rankings. Texas BEATS Oklahoma and gets cast aside. Only in the NCAA.

    Gentlemen,

    First off, the neutral field is in Dallas...last time I checked, that is located in Texas. I have been down there during the Red River shootout and I can assure you, it isn't neutral. The game is held during the Texas State Fair...not the Red River States Fair.

    The bottom line is this - the rules were in place for a three-way tie before the season started. Mack Brown should have complained before the season started about the tiebreaker rules. You don't hear Texas Tech yelping.

    Is the BCS flawed - you bet. Without the BCS, the Big 12 South would have been determined by a coin flip. Had Texas lost the coin flip, Mack Brown would have been complaining about that.

    Ah, but that's where the whole Texas Tech thing comes in:
    • Oklahoma lost to Texas (in Texas), so you can argue Oklahoma can't be put ahead of Texas in the standings.
    • Then you put Texas on top, except they lost to another one-loss team in Texas Tech. By the same logic, Tech deserves to win the tie-breaker on head-to-head, so you can't put Texas over Texas Tech.
    • So maybe Tech should be king of the hill, except Oklahoma beat them, so you can't put Tech over Oklahoma...


    The real travesty is that 9-3 Missouri goes to the Big 12 Championship when Texas, Texas Tech, and even Oklahoma State are better teams that get left out.

    “With all due respect, those are two great programs. But I don’t think anybody can beat the Trojans this year.” - USC head coach Pete Carroll
    “We know we would crush Florida and Oklahoma,” he said. “We know that.” - USC running back C.J. Gable
    Regarding USC, they can make all of the statements they want since there is no possible way they can back-up what they are saying. Penn State losing like they did was not a shocker. I guess they cannot beat any team in the country since they did lose to Oregon State. Let us also remember that Oregon State had to blow a game for USC to get a shot at the PAC-10 title. Let us remember what Trojans are in the grocery store and what usually happens to them.

    BOOMER SOONER!
