I think OU scores at least 42 points

question is will WVU score more
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

OU's defense is not a factor. However, they're offense is so good that WVU's defense may not matter, either. I want to think that Texas' defense demonstrated how to stonewall OU's offense - provided you have sufficient athletes, but Texas had OU's TE/FB guy Constanza or Kamoze or whatever his name is out of the game.

Realistically, this is a pick 'em. History says that an random helmet on ball fumble or tipped pass will upset the house of cards one way or the other.

BTW, you were right, doppel.  WVU @ oSu was much more significant than I gave it credit for being.

Well, even a blind nut can find chicken eggs by counting squirrels in a barrel by mooning a blue fish once in awhile.

I think you're right Kris.  We've had too much luck in the OU-WVU series so far.  Eventually it's going to go the other way, and this year seems like a good chance for it since the Sooner defense is the worst I think I've ever seen, at least in the Stoops-Riley era, and possibly going back way before that ...
I don’t really think OU has been lucky.  They’ve just been better.  They may very well be better this year, too.  I do think WVU has more of a shot this year than the last 2 or 3 though.

Will Grier was as good as advertised. Hard fought game. One of those too bad one team had to lose kind of deals.  Good luck in your bowl game Kris.  I hope WVU gets a good one and wins it big.

Defense set-aside, the game was as exciting as they get.    Beat OU !

Do you guys like Big XII style football?  Why is it like this?  How can it go back to being actual football, with defense?  I'm 100% not trying to troll or flame or whatever, I'm earnestly asking if you guys like it.  


I think back to the OU defenses of the mid-80s and the Texas defenses of the early 80s and while I'm not dying to watch a 9-7 game, this both-teams-have-50-by-halftime crap isn't a sport I recognize.  


Is Texas Tech to blame?  Leach?  How did it get to this point?

Very disappointed.  I thought WVU had as good a chance to win the league this year as they have ever had and may get again in a while.

OU’s offense is obviously incredible but the defensive effort was embarrassing last night.  It was last week against Ok St too.  They didn’t even put up a fight.

The two calls that negated a WVU TD in the 2nd quarter and a 70 yard run were massive.  I thought Holgorsen’s decision to go for it on 4th and 6 instead of kick a chip shot FG was a mistake.  There’s a fine line between aggressive and dumb.  Would have liked to have seen him take the points there.  Oh well.

OU-Texas in the CCG.  The Big 12’s dream comes true.

check you NCAA passing stats for the decade of the 2000's or 2010's vs the 70's or 80's
as we've discussed, the NCAA's thirst to draw non-fans eyeballs to the TV for ratings and $$$ have caused this

The lack of defense hurts the Big 12 conference as a whole.  And is why the Big 12 will play second fiddle to the Big 10 and SEC when looking at one loss teams for the playoff.

Why haven't the SEC, ACC, or B10 fell prey to this type of football?  (yet?)
