OU is the "other team" in the playoff, but that hardly means they can't win of course.  They need perhaps a key turnover somewhere.  Ohio State is a very balanced team with no obvious weaknesses.

I am on record for assuming this, correct?

Horn thing or whatever you wanna call it.
Re your question, what you quoted was from my post, but the post was an online article, so those weren't my words to which you were responding.
I'm not the one who said "Horn thing."  I said "'don't confuse me with evidence' thing."

I'm not here to argue.  I got real work for that.  This is recreation.  LSU - 21.

ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia will be without a third starting offensive lineman when it takes on No. 7 Baylor in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on January 1, 2020 (8:45 p.m. ET on ESPN). Fourth-year junior right guard Ben Cleveland will miss the bowl game due to academic issues per his father, Derek.

OU will be without the services of DL Ronnie Perkins, RB Rhamondre Stevenson, and WR Trajen Bridges, who are suspended for reasons not yet disclosed but thought to be related to the use of controlled substances.

I am thinking for us "rational fans" (if you excuse the oxymoron) a good season is one where our team did better than we expected preseason (and hopefully beat our main rivals).  A poor season, well, ...

I tend to be a bit negative preseason, seeing flaws and issues, this year I was too positive dismissing the flaws and thinking our OL would be professional grade.  (I still don't understand why they were not.)  Returning very good QB and RB stable, check, returning defense, check, good special teams, questions at wide receiver, but meh, RTDB.

So, we beat our rivals, check, lost one game inexplicably, and got blown out in the CG, still for some reason ranked 5th, made in NY6 bowl game, yay.  Upon reflection, not bad of course, but still disappointing.

Teams like Baylor and Minnesota had fantastic seasons, and Iowa did well, Utah and Oregon did well, Virginia and UNC did sort of well relatively, LSU did well I think, Michigan is probably on the other side among the majors along with Texas.  OU did about as expected with some close calls.  USCw saved their season a bit there.  Rutger and Arkansas, holy cow.  

UNC will be interesting next year I think, not that they will be 10-2 or anything.

They might be.  The ACC is just really, really bad.  Like, old Big East bad.

The Tar Heels' OOC schedule is UCF, James Madison, UConn, and Auburn.  And they don't play Clemson in the regular season.  So assuming a loss to Auburn, plus one more loss to Miami or one of the Virginia schools maybe, and they'd still be 10-2.

Agree with you that it'll be interesting to watch, anyway.

To be 10-2, you have to win ALL the games against equal or lesser teams.  That is statistically improbable, you obviously are likely to snag an upset somewhere, and lose a game or two against a near equal opponent, the ones optimists count as wins preseason.  But, you are correct, they might surprise on the upside and do like Minnesota next year.

Perkins is the leading pass rusher, Stevenson has been our 2nd-half hammer in the ground game, and Bridges is a backup WR.
It has been reported that starting strong safety Delarrin Turner-Yell broke his collarbone in practice today and is out.

Big 12 bowl games start in 2 days.

The Texas Bowl--oSu vs. ATM--is one of them.  This is another bowl that would have been more interesting with Texas as the Big 12 rep.  Without regard to the fact that the Texas Bowl is 2 picks lower than the Alamo Bowl, how would Horn fans have felt about playing the Aggies in a bowl game in Houston?

That would have been great but I read someplace that the SEC does everything possible to keep the Horns and aggie from playing against each other in football

dont really know if theres any truth to it
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.
