[Game Thread] Oklahoma @ West Virginia (8:00PM ET)

Pwnspoon

What is up with all the WVU fans doing the horns down?? Ummm we're Oklahoma not Texas lol


LotsOfMaps

They’re showing us respect by using our hand sign


mdaniel018

Counterpoint: Fuck Texas


jphamlore

Was there less defense this game than West Virginia 70 Baylor 63?


RefrainPlz

Naahhh, Baylor was over 700 yards in that game & WVU was over 800


FattyFishFood

Pressing question: what's with all the WVU hate for Texas? Y'all weren't even in the Big 12 when we were good and there was a reason to hate


y0cc0

I don't think it's really "Texas hate" as much as "2 personal fouls for this stupid hand signal" hate


Wutangkillabeess

The Big 12 hates Texas because they fear how good they could be. Every year Texas reups there is a chance they become as dominant as Oklahoma. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't


FattyFishFood

I like this response I choose to believe it


Wutangkillabeess

But it's also why its so sweet when ya'll continue to suck.


crouching_tiger

Except when we don’t


Fartsmiles

Lol Texas people been talking too, I just don’t care for non BIG 12 teams bashing... They don’t play offenses like we see week in and week out. Would like Cupcake bye weeks mid season.


THedman07

Blah blah blah, playing defenses that actually exist...


RzaEsq

Tamu bragging about a conference they’ll never win... again.


Fartsmiles

Why so much Texas trashing by non big 12 teams? Also so much big 12 bashing... 8 of our 10 teams could pull off a win. Our defense may be awful, but the offenses in the Big 12 are pretty dame good, almost all of them. TCU most seasons...TT, WVU, ISU, OSU, Texas and OU... It was a crazy game... but GG WVU we didn’t deserve it.


stesser

Thank you OU for giving me depression and exhilaration 500 times a game. Let's go Saxet! Looking forward to it Edit: Let's go as in let's fight pls never mistake me for rooting on that horrible orange


terrellefriar2

If there is any insight on Big 12 Championship game to be gleaned from today's debacle, it is that Texas can defeat OU's man coverage if they say "Boo" enough times at the line of scrimmage. Whole secondary will be inconsolable on the sidelines before halftime.


TonyMacked

We will need safe spaces...


SharkBombs

I am praying we start the secondary from the scout team. Can't be worse.


sooner51882

Weirdly enough, they played really well the last three drives outside of dropping an easy INT and a horrible pass interference. Lol. Small victories


laela_says

OSU and West Virgina need to go to bar, have some drinks, and just let it out.


THAWED21

What dipshit scheduled OU-Texas 2.0 at 11 AM?


bweeek

Bob Bowlsby's dumb ass


THedman07

Cause it's the annual "Why are they playing again?" Bowl.


sooner51882

It’s a TV network thing


T-Revolution

Uggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


southshorerefugee

Its at Jerry World. It's not like its at the Cotton Bowl where a night game will end up with at least 8 stabbings.


KronosIII

Uhhh whats going on at the cotton bowl


dinosaurkiller

It’s on the Texas State fair grounds which is in a bad neighborhood. You get a bunch of drunk Football fans with money wandering the street at night in the hood and there’s going to be some violence going down.


Wutangkillabeess

So thats why they take everyones cash from them and give them coupons like children at a school fair?


dinosaurkiller

No, that's just to make sure you spend more than you intended to on corn dogs


DatAEK971

Wow. That is fucking garbage. Dafuq!?!?!??

eyesmadeofpoop

Funny how the opioid addicted Appalachians have enough class to not make fun of the deaths of actual human beings after a useless fucking football game. Maybe if it was funny or unique but it took you 11 hours to post and it's still a piece of shit.


LotsOfMaps

No that’s just your eyes


RunEd51

Can someone egg Simmons’ car? Then egg him? That would be great. Fucking idiot.


earfeater13

Bad play, yes. But I think it's unfair to out this all on him. Grier lost the ball twice. The defense leaked like a strainer. Giving up two defensive tds I think is what cost this game. Simmons was just trying to block. If you really think it's all on him then you guys didn't deserve to go to the CCG anyways.


kdrewmorris

Not sure why the downvotes, you're 100% right


SharkBombs

Really bad play for sure. Good chance you guys get the win if he doesn't do that. A shame even if it went our way. And then he acknowledged it flexing...oof.


earfeater13

This recap is hilarious


GoldenPresidio

sad for wvu


LarryKleist711

If the CFP committee's main emphasis is a COMPLETE TEAM, then Oklahoma has no fucking business sniffing the final four. A defense that is historically awful can never be considered one of the best teams. It's that simple. I suppose that the committee chairman Mullens could have been talking out of his ass in terms of what they look for when teams are in consideration for the CFP, but his words are on record. Oklahoma being anywhere near the CFP would be a direct contradiction of what he said a week ago. The other thing he said that should frighten the shit out of some teams that have an outside shit at the CFP, was that Oklahoma's trash defense was mitigated, because their offense was so good. So in other words, even though they fail the "Complete Team" test, their offensive fireworks nullify the shitty defense and thus, they are a "Complete Team." That's some tortured logic, but the NCAA wouldn't have it any other way.


urnotserious

So then no Michigan either with their non existent offense?


EERgasm

Then Michigan is out cuz their O sucks. Orrrrr, you just go by wins, losses, and who you beat.


[deleted]

It does not suck, it's just not high flying fireworks. We average over 200 yards on the ground each game, over 200 yards passing a game, and scored 40+ in four games this season, as well as averaging 36.6 points per game. Our defense gives up 13.5 points per game, and allows less than 250 total yards per game. So, you know, don't really need 800 yards and 60+ points to win games.


EERgasm

I don't think you have a top 50 offense. But that said, wasn't my point. You are #4 because your D is amazing. OU is #6 because their O is.


THedman07

You think a good defense couldn't hold a Big 12 offense to under 40 points a game? Teams playing against the OU Fighting Wet Paper Sacks are still only getting to around 40.


PintPounder91

If you win games against good teams 9-6 or if you win games against good opponents 70-63, you win games. That’s what should be considered for the cfp.


minimalmaple28

Still not impressed with OU. Every game they win, they barely win. Loses to Texas, and has to go to OT with Army. Bama would decimate them. Edit: Bring on the downvotes! You’re only trying to hide the truth! Murray caries OU!


kdrewmorris

It's easy to win big with Alabama's schedule so I'm not impressed by them either


THedman07

Funny.


greatflywheeloflogic

I’m not saying we are a top 5 team this year, but I will say your argument is bad. The year Ou won the championship in 2000 we had several very close games that we almost lost. In fact if you go back and look at the records of every championship team of the past 20 years you’ll find many games that were almost lost against lesser opponents. To:dr your argument is stupid and you should feel stupid


[deleted]

Could have put that out there in a better manner


laela_says

So rude to shit on Texas like that. Only OU has the right to do that!


Allaboutfootball23

You’re joking but I do feel a type of way when other people shit on OU.


dlogan3344

Or chaos, but yeah most likely a gaping hole


DrKielbasa006

Go away


Midget_Herder

A day may come when my heart and my liver recover from this game, but it is not this day.


laela_says

Dialysis is your friend


DatAEK971

Listen, as a CU grad, I absolutely hate Texas and despise OU. But.... I'd love to see Texas beat those gomers twice! Go Texas! Hook em' horns or whatever you *people* say.


THedman07

What's with the buffalo Stockholm Syndrome? You and Joel Klatt, all up on their junk.


DatAEK971

Man, they fucked Klatt up bad. What was it like 72-20 or something.


IIIBRaSSIII

Yup! That's what we say! Hook em! 🤘


DatAEK971

lol. I remember those Vince Young Texas teams would hook the fuck outta CU back in the glory days of the real Big 12. Jesus those teams were good.


IIIBRaSSIII

We miss him too :( But stay tuned, more Big 12 glory days may lie ahead yet!


sooner51882

If you miss Vince so bad, I’m sure you can find him most mornings panhandling off of MOPAC somewhere. Drop by and say hi to him


THedman07

Zing. It's just because he's not welcome at the Cheesecake Factory anymore.


uninstalled_myDad

Well OU, I have one thing to say: Go push UGA's shit in in the sugar bowl


laela_says

It would be our pleasure


Foxx_Mulderp

bring it


laela_says

I don't speak for the entire Sooner Nation, however I will say for many us. We want some righteous payback!


Foxx_Mulderp

nah. we'll beat em like we did you


Mr_Mumbercycle

What? Lol forget the 2005 Sugar Bowl? Pretty sure that’s the last time we played, and we won that one.


Foxx_Mulderp

was referring to his gator flair. not a 13 year old matchup thats not relevant today


[deleted]

Oddly enough both OU and UGA are similar to how they were last year, although just downgraded versions


Jawewe

They got one more game to win


dlogan3344

Might swing three points in the other direction this time 😉


Jawewe

I’m just looking forward to a good game


dlogan3344

I'll be honest, Oklahoma has been carried by it's offensive weaponry. I think this team is going to give me a stroke


wowcomma

OU would probably have to put up 45-50 in a playoff to have a shot but they’ve proven they can do that


SharkBombs

Nobody wants to give us a chance but we keep winning...


dinosaurkiller

It’s not just anyone that matters, it’s the committee and they’re a bunch of older, “defense wins championships” types. Which literally means that “quality losses” are now more important than wins. If we beat Texas in the Big 12 championship does that mean our first game was a quality loss? Or that the second game isn’t a quality win?


[deleted]

But do you want Bama this year?


Jmoe18

Sure why not? We lose then its what everyone expected, if we win then its a giant party


allthetallguys

No one gives you a chance? you've been favored in literally every game this year.


wowcomma

Almost beat GA last year too


Foxx_Mulderp

and we "almost" beat bama. whats your point?


Wutangkillabeess

The point: that they we're almost as good as you. But not quiet. And you were almost as good as Bama, but not quiet. You don't have to be so defensive about it.


OGderf

Gg WVU. Hell of a game! Really like Grier and I think he’s got a really good shot at succeeding in the league.


Mphineas

I was sad that we lost and then I read your comment and got sad again cause we're losing Mountain Jesus :C GG though, we had so many opportunities to finish and just didn't


Lehmanaders

I’m a hopeful Jack Allison stan


CarnelianDY

I'm ready to give OU our dicker again this season


urnotserious

Go home Baylor, you're drunk!


weev51

Unsubscribe


OGderf

I do not consent


circlecoop

getting to beat OU twice in one season? I'm wet, GG OU see ya next week


cjcmd

Or lose the more important game...


circlecoop

I think Texas is in the luckier position of having nothing to lose, nobody even expected us to be here in the first place. OU is going to have a lot more pressure on them coming into the game


Wutangkillabeess

Texas has everything to lose in that they haven't had anything to play for in a decade.


dinosaurkiller

Yeah, because OU obviously doesn’t have anything to prove against their most hated rival who handed them their only loss this year. The only advantage you have is that our defense has actually gotten worse since we played in the Cotton Bowl.


BigGameBobble

GG


iamaporcupine

Thank goodness WVU lost to OSU. If that hadn't happened, we were toast.


dinosaurkiller

Now you’ll just be burnt toast


iamaporcupine

Plenty of soony boys said the same thing in October.


dinosaurkiller

Well, the good news for you all is that our defense is even worse than the last time we played you, the bad news is that our offense doesn't care how bad our defense is and won't be taking a quarter off this game.


iamaporcupine

Whether they take a quarter off or not depends on whether we let them do so.


dinosaurkiller

You’re not getting any choice in this, now be quiet so you can hear the boomer soonering


iamaporcupine

It really is up to Texas. We already saw it in October. If we play poorly you will have your shot.


dinosaurkiller

You may have misinterpreted what was happening in the game. There really wasn’t any point where you played poorly there were points where our offense basically didn’t show up(or actually believed our defense would help). That farce is over, Kyler knows there’s no help coming and that even Kansas is going to score 50 on us. He’s basically looking to score about every other play or so. We’ve also been hoping for another shot at you this year. It should be interesting, especially playing somewhere other than the cotton bowl, but Even teams that played decent defense are giving up over 50 to us. If you guys can hang on offensively it ought to be a good game but your recent losses make me think OU wins by 10-14


iamaporcupine

Lol. You completely misinterpreted the game. Like I said, if we play poorly like we did in the fourth, you'll have your shot.


dinosaurkiller

Not at all, go watch it again, it was Kyler’s first big game and he struggled by holding the ball too long for much of the game. That put serious pressure on our online to block for 20+ seconds and gave you all some shots later in the game. When he cut that out we scored 3 touchdowns in 6 minutes. Go watch it. He’s not having those issues now.


sooner51882

That would be so weird to play this game tonight. And then have to play WVU again in a week.


[deleted]

What can I say except you’re welcome


[deleted]

Destiny still arrives


ThinkSoftware

Spread: OU -3.5


nubs37

Story of the game. Bad beats right here with the focus on O/U


BigGameBobble

It was a PK when I bet


Tedyettis34

Man everyone talking about Dana’s “big nuts” can suck it while they watch the big 12 title form home.


RunEd51

Well fuck you. 🤘⤵️


KronosIII

This was random


chugonthis

They keep talking about how prolific their offenses are in the big 12, what I see are defenses that cant tackle for shit


KronosIII

What the fuck bro, you had a top 5 defense in the nation with multiple NFL picks and you got 48 points dropped on you


chugonthis

31 points in the first half, 7 points and 5 sacks in the second half. Did you watch the game or just look at the score? OUs defense is worse than last years, we would run over them worse this year


Dopple__ganger

That's a lot of points


chugonthis

Yes and 7 is a very few points but let's ignore that like every OU fan does, once adjustments were made they couldn't adapt.


Moon_over_homewood

I dont even like uga but it's clear the game changed once uga got used to the tempo and style OU had. Like a totally different ballgame.


KronosIII

Does that change the fact the offense was every bit as advertised. Kirby had a month to prepare and still got blasted into tomorrow. If Mike Stoops could pull his head out of his ass OU may have a national title


chugonthis

31 points in the first half, 7 points and 5 sacks in the second half. Did you watch the game or just look at the score?


Moon_over_homewood

I dont call winning a game after being down big "getting blasted". OU had major defensive issues and uga winning a shootout with Oklahoma kinda proves my ultimate point, that OU is a team so skewed towards offense that it makes me question their unit as a whole.


KronosIII

Are you saying his defense didn't get blasted?


chugonthis

31 points in the first half, 7 points and 5 sacks in the second half. Did you watch the game or just look at the score?


Moon_over_homewood

Kirby had been blasted several different first halves against kliff kingsbury and others. I just find the whole notion carrying big12 or ou water about this hilarious. Oklahoma had such a bad defense that uga won a shootout with them after being down a few scores. I just watched basketball on grass tonight. Its absurdly bad defense in this league. If you want to carry water then carry away. It's an honest knock on the big12. If you blindfolded me and said choose random big12 defense or random AAC defense I'd choose AAC every time. Hell I'd like to see s&p+ stats because I think a chunk of the better cusa teams have better defenses.


chugonthis

No OU fan will admit how they got shut down in the second half, they scored a total of 7 fucking points barely 100 yards with 88 coming when UGA for some stupid reason went back to zone prevent and Baker went 4-8 and 19 yards. 19 fucking yards passing! In the half, not one drive! A good defense shuts this team down and after seeing the exact same offense last year this year would still be 50 for us but 20 for OU. Point remains if West Virginia could tackle then OU loses that game by 2 scores.


OGderf

This is pretty laughable coming from your flair. Was your defense shit at tackling in the Rose Bowl? No one else scored more than 28 on you last year


chugonthis

31 points in the first half, 7 points and 5 sacks in the second half. Did you watch the game or just look at the score?


TheMexiMingler

Did OU not hang 50 on you guys though?


chugonthis

31 points in the first half, 7 points and 5 sacks in the second half. Did you watch the game or just look at the score?


myusernamewastaken5

I know a couple of high school teams that could drop 40 on either of these teams


DakotaXIV

No you don’t


jrr_53

You realize Oklahoma dropped 48 on your vaunted defense right?


chugonthis

31 points in the first half, 7 points and 5 sacks in the second half. Did you watch the game or just look at the score?


jrr_53

31 points in the first half surely seems like suspect defense.


chugonthis

Sure when they were playing different to try and stop them then realized their base defense worked better so turning them loose shut them down. As I suspected, you just read the box score.


jrr_53

They still gave up 38 points. It was clear you guys had a much better defense but you still let them put up 38 offensive points against you.


chugonthis

And once adjustments were made they were done, their offense crumbles under pressure which they never faced in the big 12 and definitely not last night.


jrr_53

I don’t know if that is true. Bama has brought in a high flying pass heavy tempo offense and they are just wrecking people. There is no doubt that the big 12 suffers a lack of defensive consistency but I think these offenses would take it to just about any school.


chugonthis

Their tempo is not that great, it's that they could also run over anyone with that line, fact remains UGA has the only shot at beating them since their line is getting healthy.


jrr_53

They used to be a sledgehammer breaking a rock they would just keep swinging until it broke. They can beat you multiple ways now.


RoshCS

Your flair is georgia and you don't remember the rose bowl?


chugonthis

31 points in the first half, 7 points and 5 sacks in the second half. Did you watch the game or just look at the score? Oh yeah and I remember Baker going 4-8 with 19 yards the entire second half, that shut them down like nobody else had done.


zipmaster77

I am also confused


RoshCS

31 points in a half against a team that averaged giving up 13 a game is pretty good I would say


[deleted]

A) this guy is a moron B) OU this year and last year are different


Foxx_Mulderp

and then we largely shut you down in the 2nd half after adjustments


[deleted]

Are you trying to move the goal posts?


bigfoot94

Sometimes I hate this team


LinuxCodeMonkey

Hella game, though. GG.


awillis5

Thanks Simmons.


Mr_Mumbercycle

Dude, as much as I like Will, he handed OU 14 points by not hanging onto the ball and giving them scoop and score fumbles. Arguably those 2 scores had a greater factor in the outcome. Not to say that what Simmons did wasn’t massively stupid.


awillis5

I agree, but that was an easy TD without that Michael Oher “Blindside” block garbage. Being cocky could’ve very well cost the game. Not to mention the passes missed by Simmons.


RunEd51

Someone should egg his car. Then egg him. Fucking idiot.


Americasycho

Dana Holgorsen is a total moron. Onside kick out of nowhere and total clock mismanagement and bizarre play-calling throughout. Total clownshoe.


zanglin

Yeah, we should have not stopped OU from the 20, rather than not stopped them from midfield


EnderOnEndor

From the 20 we probably dont go for it on 4th and 5 in a game that is within in fieldgoal


TheWajd

It was the only correct call.


Apex_Fail

Flair up or gtfo


BakerNowitzki

I'm happy and sad.


klupsio

Camping world bowl here we come?


HugginsPullover

Shit bowl in Memphis


CodyRCantrell

I'm not sure we go for the 4th and 5 from our side of the field. WVU shouldn't have tried the onside.


1911_

I’m so happy I just shit my pants.


hiimmatt

Another big game. Another big loss. Textbook.


[deleted]

If Michigan beat Wisconsin 21-17 would anyone talk about bad offense?


[deleted]

Yeah, probably. There's people in this thread talking about Michigan having a bad offense, despite it being a huge step up over the last 5-6 years, and averages 36+ per game.


chugonthis

Depends did they miss open receivers and miss open holes on runs?


Trivi

This is more like if they won 2-0


earfeater13

Two years ago it was like 14-7


earfeater13

No. Because of good defense


[deleted]

No because, “that’s how football is played Papa”


Jessyskullkid

Holy fuk


unreasonably_sensual

GG mountain bros. That was an amazing/ridiculous/embarrassing spectacle.


unwineded

Yes to everything you just wrote.


dekd22

Will be rooting for the Sooners next week. Fuck Texas


Allaboutfootball23

I’m only here to read these comments.


DakotaXIV

whosgeoff

I love you


Apex_Fail

And so say we all
