The refs were completely garbage. The missed PI in the end zone felt egregious especially after they picked up the Personal Foul penalty earlier.

I’m not one to complain about the refs but how are both heads turned around, the DB literally holds his arm around the receiver and won’t let him come back for the football NOT a pass interference penalty. It was egregious at that point.

"Sinking Ship"?? :lol: DipWhit deserves a participation trophy. Better than being on a lil bro ship that wont float...why arent all these HC openings coming after the mullet? Oh wait
Because he's the king of Stillwater and as of late Saturday night, the king of football in the state of Oklahoma for as long as he wants to be.

Because our AD and him have made it clear he's not entertaining offers. He has in the past, but turned them down. No one is knocking because the no soliciting sign has been put out.

It's a sinking ship and you know it. I heard, as well as I am sure you did too, that the 3pm presser yesterday was supposed to be the Venables announcement. That wasn't even close. It was a damage control presser with your daddy bobby to help ease the pain for you morons standing around with your little peckers in your hand. Joe C begged for patience as this will take weeks, so you can pull up your britches now.

I flipped on the sports animal for the first time in several years during my commute yesterday. Dean told the boys that his sources say the Venables talk was unfounded yesterday. They had no clue where it came from. Meanwhile, recruits are dropping like flies and your players are hitting the portal hard like it's Amelia Molitor.

SINKING SHIP

Gundy isn't getting called because he's been raised here yet again and has bluffed multiple times in the past. He's at the twilight of his career and is a game away from the playoffs. There's no reason to expect his phone to ring and I am fine by that. My worry is with Knowles.. PSU just lost their DC. And if y'all pull off a miracle with Venables, you can bet Dabo will give Knowles a ring.

Enjoy the Alamo Bowl! I understand that Cale will be calling up Mike for play calling advice! :lol:

I know that's something we all like to think, as it makes us feel better. But if lsu, or ND, or usc had secretly called his agent kicking the tires of a 100 million dollar offer, he'd have left like a thief in the night too, being escorted to the airport by the same surreptitious blacked out SUV at 6 am. If it can happen to programs like OU and ND, it can happen to stillwater state. At the end of the day, everyone has a price but he could just as well be a lifer like Stoops. The new market is for an elite HC is being reset right now and he could be intrigued by a new opportunity, but I personally dont think gundy is on that level so you may not have to worry about it as a fan.

I think the press conference was exactly what they needed. OU is very lucky to have such great leadership and overwhelming support of the extended family. Former players have been showing their support publicly for the program, and it sure doesnt hurt having a hall of fame coach tending to the recruiting efforts, which, I think, could very well salvage what could still be a very respectable class. I dont see this happening at ND, or (probably) or even at lsu. This seems unique for OU. I feel a lot better now than I did sunday.

Bob has the gift of gab. I can h/t that, but I'll call that presser what it was.. damage control. The internet made things worse by leading everyone to believe it was the Venables presser. The internet is undefeated, so well done on that. Former OU players took it hook line and sinker. It was beautiful.

Back to Bob's good job though.. it is going to be countered hard by so many coaches. Yeah, kid.. Bob is talking to you but who's the actual new coach going to be? Is he going to fit your style? Hell, Bob mentioned that kids will likely leave because the next coach might not be a good fit for them. You don't know who that next coach is and we both know you're a helluva fit here.

It's happening right now to both recruits and current players.

It is treading water at the moment, but it's not a sinking ship. It's not like they dont have staff and a hall of fame coach working on things. If this was stillwater state, or program of similar stature, bigger problem. The 3pm presser was exactly what it was supposed to be. Veneables being spotted in norman or having already agreed to take the job, that's all rumors spread on social media and I guess you were one of the people who fell for it. Never a good look to run with a rumor that doesnt happen, and assume that it was some pre-planned thing that fell through. You probably also thought stoops advised fox that he was quitting the show 2 days before the announcement. Another rumor.

And yeah, why wouldnt you, if you were the AD, preach patience? They have never been the type to respond to a situation like this with a knee jerk reaction. Even if they knew who they wanted, they are going to take the right approach and do their due diligence. I hope they interview a handful of people before making a hasty decision like some other schools feel like they have to. It sounds like you really, on a personal level, wish this to be as bad as possible for us fans. And I guess I get it, but it you may be pushing the bounds of where reality and fantasy intersect.

Seeing players leave or decommit is all a part of the process of losing your HC, it's all to be expected. But I also expect a lot of guys to stay on the team or on their commitment.

I suspect gundy isnt being called because no AD out there thinks he's worth that kind of dough. He fits in too well in a medium program whose fans dont expect championships every year, it's really a nice gig for him. Low expectations + a ton of money in a cheap state is about as good as you can hope for if you arent saban. And you can bet that old dirty pair of your sisters panties you stole that knowles' time in stillwater is limited. Probably the first call for dabo for sure.
