    Re: Jalen Hurts @ Kansas game thread

    Some thoughts about the KU game: for some reason weather delays seem to affect us. We never went back to the locker room after warmups because of the uncertain start time. Both our starting O-tackles were out. OU fans will tell you that Riley gets Mike Leach squirrely every game. During his presser after the game a toilet flushed as he was answering a question and he said...that's what we should have done with my play calling. Believe it or not our D is much improved. KU beat BC on the road this year. Now, don't get me wrong, they are still bad but we simply looked like we were thinking about Texas. Hurts is a very good QB and Riley will make it work but he is no Mayfield or Murray and he is no Tua. He is good enough to lead us to a 5th conference championship but it remains to be seen whether he can get us over the playoff hump.

    Good post, OFD.

    Yes, OU's offensive line play was poor. The Sooners don't have enough quality depth on that unit.

    Jalen was asked in presser if he ws ready for the Red River Shootout; his response " I have played in the Iron Bowl; I'll be alright". Luv it

    Speaking of the Iron Bowl...I'm curious, has the change from a neutral site at Legion Field to a home/home made any appreciable difference in the game day atmosphere and intensity? There are always folks on this end calling for the OU vs Texas game to be home/home primarily for economic reasons. Most, however, love the neutral site, stadium half &,half, state fair of Texas ambience.

    Actually, we do have a lot of quality depth with the O-line unit but it's all young. When you graduate almost the entire unit you must have 8 ready and that's a tall order for any program. Except for WR, we probably have more quality depth in the O-line than any other unit but building cohesion in any O-line is not accomplished over night.

    One other comment about Kansas...I am a big believer in game day mentality when it comes to college players. Yes, I do believe that the Tide was not as focused as usual when we played in the Sugar Bowl. That Auburn debacle left lasting scars. The KU stadium wasn't even 1/2 full. I've seen Texas H.S. games with much bigger crowds. The entire atmosphere was not conducive to a high level of emotion and execution. Now, if we play like that this Sat. I will be concerned.

    It altered the feel of the game forever. It's just another home and home now, with more intense emotions, because of the 365 rivalry between the schools in state, but 50/50 engenders a different atmosphere...

    The opportunity to play for all the marbles, win or lose, is multiplied by the fact that we have had so many H.T. winners play in such games. There is no shame in playing and losing.

    Correction 0-6

    Jason White was the losing QB in 2003 and 2004.

    That may be the homer/moral victory viewpoint. The SEC viewpoint is that the teams and QB's are highly overrated due to playing in the BIGweneed12or13 on the field to play defense league. 0-6 speaks for itself.
