Excuses aside, what are OU's real problems, @TypicalGooner? I mean.. Rattler folds under pressure and doesn't appear to be a strong leader. But outside of Drake Stoops, Rattler is the best player on the O. He just needs more help because Drake Stoops can only do so much. I'm curious to know what the hell happened to the OL? Butterbaugh had a good run of OLs going and you, yourself, said you scout team OL could start for a lot of schools. And what about RBs? I questioned to the loss of Brooks when he decided to quit, but you and Toke both said OU would be fine and maybe even better off without him. What about the WRs? I thought you had recruited so well there, but then you had to take some no name Marshall transfer in order to compete until he got hurt and Drake Stoops became MVP of the O.
It's like OU's offense just followed the defense right off the cliff they plunged from. What gives? Generally curious to know. Was it maybe the lack of reps from starting so late and not having a real covid contingency plan? I know I had mentioned concerns about that, but again.. y'all played the OU can do no wrong card.
Honestly, the lip service from you Pokes is hilarious. You have no legs to stand on. You don’t even like your own coach. Your team has zero direction. Gundy is still throwing spaghetti to a wall and hoping it sticks seventeen years later.
Hell you guys even disappeared after the first performance of the year. The only thing that brings you back is when OU loses. Which is incredibly sad that you’re more hyped by OU losing than by the prospect your own team winning.
And you don’t even see it yourself.. which is even sadder.
OU lost two games in a row for the first time in 21 years and you act like you guys won the super bowl. When OSU lost two games in a row on two different occasions in the last two years.
Keep on laughing while you can though. It’s pretty cute.
Talking big after watching that crap show. Let's examine the CURRENT situation:
1. Goons are running out the second best freshman qb in the state.
2. The goons have a cute little tendency to give up lots of points after halftime.
3. The goon kickers can't get it through the uprights, of course the Poke kicker hasn't missed this year.
4. What a crap show of turnovers.
Quit living in the past, your present is bleak but move to the present and embrace your techification.
If you want to talk about that, then you have to talk about how many more opportunities for mistakes ratttler has had simply due to his advanced playing time this season. 49 total attempts for illingworth. Whoa ! And he’s only really good game game against Tulsa. again, whoa!!
We can compare the first 49 attempts by rattler and wouldn’t you know, he also had a higher completion percentage at that point too.
Now let’s compare the number of impressive plays each player has had.
Is there a video of Hillingworth effortlessly making this throw?
