Nope, 11W had an article about them a while ago. Pretty crazy look, but not bad. I prefer the black unis from last year, but to each their own.

Comment 19 Oct 2016

I know you said that there would be no debate about best game, but I guess it depends on what we're going for. Did you mean the closest/most suspenseful game? Or the team's best performance? To me, what we did in Norman made that the best game so far this year. Sure, Wisconsin was closer, but we dismantled OU at their house.

Regarding JT as the MVP, I compared his current numbers to his amazing 2014 campaign through 6 games, and he's not that far off. At this time in 2014, he was completing 65% of his passes (63.2% now), had thrown for 1615 yards (1,207 yards now), had run for 383 yards (434 yards in 2016), and had 24 total touchdowns (vs. 22 now). Also, it's worth noting that he had a loss already in 2014, not that we really need that reminder, and that the schedule thus far has been vastly superior to 2014's start.

Nice article, Tim!

59-13... I think we start early and don't let off the gas at all until late in the 4th, and even then McCall hits pay dirt on a long run.

Comment 21 Sep 2016

The funny thing is, as I was typing that I put in "at Purdue," but realized he had at least 2 season-saving catches that year, so I just left it as his name

Comment 21 Sep 2016

I'm with you on that one. I think that the 2016 draft showed these guys that Urban has them prepared to hear their names called and we'll see more of them testing the waters. 

Possible early entry guys from the 2014 class:

Noah Brown, Malik Hooker, Sam Hubbard, Marshon Lattimore, Raekwon McMillan, Curtis Samuel, Damon Webb

Other non-Seniors (2013 class):

JT Barrett, Gareon Conley, Tyquan Lewis

Not suggesting that all of them will leave, but this seems to me to be the list of possible departures. Who am I forgetting?

Comment 21 Sep 2016

Whose catch was better?

A: Noah Brown's

Whose catch came in the biggest moment?

A: Michael Thomas's; though I could see the argument for Michael Jenkins here too.

Final answer.

Comment 13 Sep 2016

They lost the game 34-24.......

Later, as they were preparing to leave, he went to Kight and told him: “I pressed pause. I got my mind right. And I stepped up. I never had that tool before. Thank you.”

Urban forces himself to eat, even when he doesn’t feel hungry. He consults with a nutritionist. He snacks on bananas and Chobani Greek yogurt. He avoids pizza.

If his biggest loss that night, mentally, was breaking and eating pizza, then I think he's doing well!

1. OVER (OSU 52 - TULSA 24)

2. TRUE (41 yarder)

3. TRUE (JT has 4 passing TDs, 1 rushing, & Samuel has a rushing TD)

Comment 23 Aug 2016

To be fair, the article you referenced did say that they didn't know if the H-Backs were considered a part of Smith's 6. With that in mind, if you take Samuel and Wilson out of the mix, you're left with Brown, Smith, Campbell and 3-4 more. Likely candidates would be Mack, McLaurin, Dixon, and Gibson, but it seems within reason that Victor could make a push. Not saying it'll happen, but... maybe.

Comment 19 Aug 2016

You're probably right, and I should have a caveat in there about Samuel and how he ends up being used. Obviously mine is based on him being on the field as an H-Back, but if it truly ends up with him splitting significant time (I'd say 33% of the carries is significant) in the backfield, then I'd probably swap Smith and Samuel as well.

That said, I'm still putting my chips in on him getting less carries than what you've suggested. The only season under Meyer, thus far, that we've seen a #2 RB get over even 23% of the carries that the #1 guy gets was in 2013 when Hyde was suspended the first 3 games.
