Results have been in our favor so far today. If ISU could somehow win out that’d be amazing. 

I don't think that was a favorable result.  I think that ideally, we needed a top-5 TCU to beat, then a 1-loss, probably top-10 TCU to beat in the title game.

If Iowa St wins out (@WVU, OkSt, @Baylor, #farmageddon) they will be in the top ten. They are really good and are a much better team without Park at QB. I didn't watch their OT loss to Iowa, but Park absolutely killed the Cyclones against Texas. If they would have gotten just a slightly below average QB performance in that game they would have won. 

I don't think the rest of the results matter too much - in my opinion it's difficult to see a scenario where OU wins out and doesn't make the playoff, but they are probably more likely to lose twice than to win the rest of them. 

I am not expecting good things this weekend.

Didn't see John Blake either

It was Gary Gibbs when I was there.  Those weren't terrible teams, just not really Oklahoma teams.  People were mad about 9-3, not knowing how bad it would get before Stoops arrived.

Went and saw Trae for the first time in person last night. Not much to say that hasn't already been said. The kid is a freaking monster.

OU basketball was my first love as a kid, and the KU '88 title game is still the most disappointed I've ever been by an OU loss in any sport. With the addition of the Thunder and the general decline of college basketball, I've lost a lot of interest over the years. But I'm pretty excited about this team, and I advise you all to not miss out on this kid during his brief time in crimson and cream.

NBA scouts seem to think he needs another year to be a top 5 pick guy, hopefully he's around longer than just one year.  I watched him against Wichita State for the first time, he's pretty damn awesome.

I would love for it to be the case that he's here another year, but think that's a pipe dream. The kid is ready. He's never going to be an athletic stud, but his game is extremely mature. His passing accuracy is ridiculous. He pinpoints passes to fit perfectly within a shooter's rhythm.

Does anyone else feel that OU went way to conservative in the 2nd half, almost playing to not lose instead of to win?

 

I didn't think so. I agree with just about everything Bill Connelly said here.

A buddy just texted me that he heard on the sports animal that Mike Stoops is "walking away". Nothing confirmed yet.

A lot of rumors at this time about M. Stoops.  It is long past due.

It's done. Time to move on. Riley has already said he is staying. And two big gets for the D this week with LB Bonitto specifically saying he signed because of Stoops. :shrug:

The Oklahoma Sooners football program had won 87 straight games when it established a 17-point lead in any game, at any time. That streak ended Monday in the most dramatic College Football Playoff semifinal since its inception in 2014, and the first double-overtime game in Rose Bowl history.

To add insult to misery, this means the Georgia Bulldogs pulled off the biggest comeback in Rose Bowl history against Oklahoma, fam. The Sooners had gone 61-4 when scoring at least 24 points in the first half of games over the last decade prior to Monday.

To be sure, there were some high-points during the game—particularly when OU was up 31-17 at the half. (Never squib kick again, Lincoln.) Heisman winner Baker Mayfield broke Heisman winner Sam Bradford’s record (4,767) for total offense in season (4,938), and running back Rodney Anderson rushed for over 200 yards against a Bulldog defense that had only allowed two 100-yard rushers all season. But this game was lost because of conservative–even some times cute—play-calling in the second half, and an embarrassing showing by the Sooners defense, which leads me to this:

ONE COACH: FIRE Mike Stoops!

Oklahoma defensive coordinator Mike Stoops insisted on using 3-man fronts in a scheme some people call a 3-4 defense; some call a 3-3-5 defense and what I call a TRAAAAASH! The Sooners gave up over 500 yards of offense, and over 300 yards rushing to a Georgia team that made no secret of its intention to run right into the teeth of Stoops’ front seven (and sometimes front eight).

Even when Stoops chose to load the box with eight men, though, UGA’s offensive line put on its big boy britches and cleared the way for running backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb to run over the Sooner defensive line and linebackers like a lawnmower over artificial turf, fam. Micheland Chubb carried the ball a combined 25 times for 326 yards—13 yards per carry.

It was painful to watch.

UGA came out in information sets, saw Stoops put three men on the line of scrimmage and then checked to a run where Michel or Chubb careered into the second level and dragged defenders along like wedding car cans on Sooner Road.

Into the third quarter, the question became why did UGA throw the ball at all? Yes, Chubb broke about 9,326 tackles during the game, and the Sooners had three opportunities to wrap Chubb up and put him on the floor during his 50-yard score with 12 minutes and change left in the third.

But an OU defense getting skull-dragged isn’t new with Stoops. In fact, it’s six years old and coming up on first grade.

For the last half-dozen years, we’ve seen Stoops get outcoached. For the last three years, we’ve seen Mayfield become the defensive coordinator by outscoring other teams. And now, it seems, we’re stuck with Stoops for a seventh year after Lincoln Riley gave Stoops a vote of confidence Wednesday morning, according to OUDiehards.com

“Mike is a really good coach. I have a lot of confidence in him, as I do our whole staff,” Riley said. “To do what this staff and this program did this year with all the changes and all that, it’s unprecedented. People better remember that, too.”

No, Lincoln, it ain’t unprecedented, fam.

Getting mollywhopped in the biggest game of the season is no longer unprecedented at Oklahoma. We got beat in the national title game in January 2004. We got beat in the national title game in January 2005. We got beat in the national title game in January 2009. We’ve gotten beat in the semifinal twice in four years, and it ain’t because we can’t score. It’s because we have to outscore. Scoreboard says Georgia 54, Oklahoma 48, Lincoln. At the University of Oklahoma, 48 points ought to win you a football game—unless your defensive coordinator is Mike Stoops.
