    Ya we wouldn't want any of that right now, but that's true of a lot of schools at this moment.

    No doubt. Don't get me wrong, Arkansas isn't chopped liver, but we'd have more success against them than UT-Norman

    Afghanistan merged

    I watched "Turning Point" on Netflix, which was both good and really depressing because it was just too true. The first 18 months in Afghanistan was fine when we were ridding the country of Al Qaeda and Taliban and trying to kill Bin Laden. When we screwed up at Tora Bora and invaded Iraq the...

    How Gundy became a starter

    I can't figure out why we kept throwing WR screens and other lateral throws that rely on timing and perimeter blocking. The group on Saturday is not at a point where the blocks are there so it makes every one of those throws really risky. We should, however, be fully capable of rolling Sanders...

    Official Game Thread: Tulsa vs. Oklahoma State

    Are we going to have this same conversation after every game? (Somebody knows somebody that's going to quit going to games because they're done with Gundy.)

    You'd be incorrect in assuming I care to hear RA, but I would guess you are used to being incorrect if you make those kind of leaps on a regular basis.

    Have a hard time respecting much that comes from Carson Cunningham. He's just another PFB guy that fits their mold.

    I'll admit I've only read about the last 3 pages, but I don't see many pumping up Tulsa. Mostly questions about wtf our offense is doing.

    Good to see that Gundy isn't sugar coating it with our offensive game plan. That is reassuring. For all the talk about how Gundy dictates playcalling... I think most can agree that Gundy called the offense better when that was his job. He's not always made the best decisions about who to play...

    Gosh I don't know. It definitely was the biggest swing in momentum of the game.

    The few things that stood out to me: -Our offensive line was (is) bad. I lost count of the number of times that they didn't seem to know who to block. Tackles in particular got owned. -Our WRs can't block, had too many drops and too many busted routes. -Sanders looked like somebody that...

    If it were up to me, I'd try and schedule a few name brands that don't really scare anyone but look good on paper - Tennessee, Nebraska, Michigan, Arkansas, Miami, etc. We'd win a fair share playing any of those teams, but winning those games looks good because most of the media's perception is...

    Clearly OU has gotten more out of that game lately. It's at the end of the year, they've played some of their best football year in and year out during Bedlam and inevitably we've become a springboard for their playoff and Heisman campaigns. Bedlam hasn't been a level playing field since the...

    Thank you. I was about to say that. They've won 1 conference title in the last 25 years and probably averaged 7 wins per year during that stretch.

    Cinn and UCF have basically no chance of making the playoffs and an even smaller chance of winning the national championship - regardless of what they do. The current gap is ~$35MM Big XII vs $45MM SEC and the SEC is already dominating in every aspect of college football. If there's any truth...

    I certainly hope something happens that makes this gloomy prediction not come true but it's hard to imagine schools like OSU competing with schools like OU/Texas when the budget gap is going to be significantly larger than it is today.

    Official Game Thread: Missouri State vs. Oklahoma State

    Weeden and Rudolph both played for Gundy. I'm going to give you a second chance to read... "Any coach at OSU before Gundy coming off 8-3 and beating Miami would be a hero." You obviously don't remember (or weren't around) prior to Gundy. I recall the tremendous excitement in '97 when we...

    Gundy is, by definition, a victim of his (and the program in general's) own success. Any coach at OSU before Gundy coming off 8-3 and beating Miami would be a hero. We've come a long ways.

    So a survey of 1700 fans is an echo chamber, but "most fans I know" isn't. Gotcha. Good day sir.
