Sleeping on it. Thoughts on OU to the SEC:

1. Like the move or not, it was mostly inevitable. Landscape is changing rapidly and schools are going to do what they feel they have to do to thrive. But that’s not what this thread is about.

Let’s talk about OU and competing… 1b. OU, Texas and the SEC have to talk July 1, 2025 as the date, because, lawsuits and contracts and such. But let’s assume that’s not the pitch to recruits. The real start date answers the question.

2a. OU has the horses to win the SEC this year. However…

Sleeping on it. Thoughts on OU’s 53-45 4OT win over UT.

1. Always great to get a win in this game, regardless of how. OU is back to .500, gains their 49th win in the series, and helped our fans avoid a really long walk to the car afterward.

Thread 2. If you’re a baseball fan, and have a team you follow, think about that good young pitcher who has great stuff, but loses his mental edge after a while. No hits through 4, then unravels a bit in the 5th. Maybe an Edinson Volquez? That’s who OU is right now.

Sleeping on It...thoughts from last nights loss to Iowa St.

1. That one followed the script of the Georgia loss. And yet another game we blew a double digit lead only to eek out a win or lose. Since that night in the Rose Bowl, OU has “blown” 10+ point leads 7 times, losing 4. 2. Some positives on defense. Effort. I saw a bunch of guys in the secondary playing hard. DL played better. More pressure, better at filling gaps. We could have had some game-changing series had we wrapped up or taken better angles at times.

Sleeping on it.

Thoughts on yesterday’s 38-35 loss to KSU.

1. This is a thread you should skip.
2. Young team. Expected 2-3 Ls this year, just not yesterday.
3. Feels a little like 2005 at QB. Rattler looks great at times then loses composure a bit. He’s gonna be fine. 4. The D needs a playmaker. Texas was in a jam and made plays. We didn’t. No picks. No strips. We didn’t even try to block a punt. There will be games like this. Someone has to make a play to bail us out. We didn’t even really come close.

Sleeping on it.

Thoughts on OU’s 48-0 win over Missouri St.

1.Seth McGowan is our RB1
2.Spencer Rattler has a chance. A chance. To be better than Baker and Kyler. No predictions. But man he can spin it.
3.Chandler Morris is fast.

1/? 4.How did Chad McKee seem so unaware of the situation time and time again? Did OU muzzle him?
5.We gots receivers for days.
6.We have a really good backup kicker. CC: Florida St
7.Marvin Mims Junior. All American.
8.Who the heck is Mikey Henderson?

If OU let’s in 25% of its crowd, they should let in the super loud lady who sits a row behind me and about 6 seats over. She’ll more than make up for it. #Section9Karen But seriously. Story time. One night, Section 9 Karen snapped. We were playing K State. Colin Quinn days. There was a play in the southeast corner of the EZ. Call went against us. Now, 9 is on NW side, and we are low. We have no business weighing in. She lost it. 1/2

If the Big 12 plays against the SEC in some form this season it will give everyone a false sense of what life would be in the SEC for teams like OU or Texas, should they move there in the future. Why? Because it’s the actual hypothetical of dropping OU into the a SEC coming true. If OU did join the SEC in 2025, that would be announced, at the latest, in 2023. Internally, it would be known before. Recruiting for OU starting in 2022 would be “as an SEC team.” Ergo, OU’s defensive recruiting, for example, would likely improve, if being SEC helps.
