    I think you have your posters confused.
    You asked for a time frame that included the 90s. I posted all time record which last time i checked included the 90s. So im not trying to skew anything.

    80k was an arbitrary number I threw up. I said 58k+ or 60k- because osu's capacity is under 60 and over 58.

    It would take a lot of research to find 17 or more school who field ~60k for a spring game. But off the top of my head ohio state is famous for having 80k + at spring games. They had over 95k a few years ago. But just a quick google search shows me Alabama at 78k, even arky at 45k. I may have exaggerated when I say many schools get that many at spring games. But there are a lot that get 40 45 46 38 etc. Which is even more than OU which had only 20k.

    You are kind of half right there. A good home field advantage is a history of winning, or a tough environment. Some say the swamp or the Shoe are the toughest places to win, but they have more losses at home in the past decade than schools like OU or boise state, who have had great to decent teams, but still maintain the high level of play at home, even during off years.

    Well, you only count it since it was redidicated because osu started winning games at that time. So , sure, if i wanted to, i could skew the numbers in OU's favor and nick out a couple losses to make it look better. No need to. we just separate it by stoops era, or gundy era. Seems more appropriate. A 10-15 year chunk of time seems like an appropriate measure. At least, OU has been back for about that long, and osu is only now just on the upward swing. Kind of where OU was back in the early 2000s.

    Whistle past the graveyard if you like. You guys got beat by Baylor and Tech. Do I need to mention the Bedlam blow-out? Couple that with several transfers and suspensions. There is a problem in goonerville. Don't believe me. Watch the 2012 season.

    We will then enjoy laughing as you look stupid when OU wins their 8th big 12 title. Then your team wins 7-8 games and you are brought back to earth.

    7-8 wins is right about where OU should be by season end. You have like a 1 deep o-line right now and one injury will cripple your entire season. Even if they stay healthy... you don't have depth there anymore. I see the sooners really struggle next year.

    You must be blind if you think the OSU cowboy defense is going to let OU score a bunch of TD with Landry at the helm. Even if Trey Metoyer is a stud....I have no doubt in my mind that Justin Gilbert will not let him do a damn thing. Our offense won't be as good but we will still score on your weak ass defense.

    One year? That selective memory really doesn't look good on you.

    Once again. Tell me all about the programs that didn't get their hands dirty to win back then.

    Better yet, I can tell you stories about programs that got their hands dirty and STILL didn't win.
