I guess for me it could be ruthlessly harassing my Oklahoma friends with OU crying Jordan memes the entire weekend. That's it for sports related trolling.
I like the GIF of the OU horse holding a gun to its head on the thread about nobody caring anymore. lol. Wish I knew how to post it.
I think you might be right. If Texas beats OU, Charlie Strong might have that job locked down for another year or two. A big requirement for coaching at Oklahoma is being able to recruit Texas, and he's as good as anyone there. If Houston wins out and fails to make the playoff, this might be the way things go down.
I didn't see your prediction. You can take the street cred today.
35-24 Ohio State
Speed & tempo is how you mitigate it. I wanna see Charles Walker throw up on the field. #NoMercy
From what I watched, Oklahoma has size on defense, but they struggled with tempo against Houston. I think this should bode well for us. I also think we'll be able to run the ball better than UH. Houston's running back Duke Catalon looked ok against the OU defense to me. But I think Mike Weber accelerates to top speed much quicker & hits the hole much faster than Catalon despite his top end speed being only slightly better. I actually didn't think Houston had great team speed. At some spots they're solid, & at others they're only just functional speed wise. I think our offensive attack should fare better overall against OU despite popular opinion saying we could struggle.
To me, our defense is what will make or break this game. I've told my OU friends that their offense is solid, but struggles against a physical, attacking defense. It's why they were destroyed by Clemson two years in a row, and also why Houston was able to slow them down despite having a somewhat undersized defense. I remember one play specifically where Mayfield attempted to scramble up the middle & got lit up by one of Houston's LB's. I trust our DB's to hold their own against Westbrook & Lewis, and so long as Mayfield can't consistently find Mark Andrews, we should be able to send the house at them & shut them down the same way. My only concern is if Tyquan, Hubbard & Holmes can bring to the edge of our D-line what Ed Oliver brought to the middle of Houston's. If we can shut down the edges, maybe their running game will become predictable no matter how adept they are at running it up the middle.
Sup, village bum here. Just fixing rosters on NCAA 14 & eating Taco Bell in the swimming pool. #SwagLife till Saturday.
Seeing as how every O-line we've fielded under Urban Meyer has turned out great as the season went on, I agree. Recruiting & development win the day.
I think it helps us more than it hurts us. We get to see what works against them & also what doesn't. Plus I don't think their defense is that great. Not without Charles Tapper, Dominique Alexander, Erik Striker & Zack Sanchez. They've also sucked against Clemson the past 2 years.
I don't ever see Mike Weber having the break away speed to get long TD's, but he has outstanding acceleration for sure. He can find the hole in a hurry & hit the second level for consistent gains. I have so much faith in this team it's insane. #11-1
Jalin Marshall ate Indiana alive in 2014. Here's hoping he becomes the next Josh Cribbs for the time being.
I'll never forget my "Suns out guns out" t-shirt from TJ Max. I could swear it was $8. Wish I could find that..
I think if Zeke falls to 8, the Browns should take him. Between Zeke, RG3 & Duke Johnson, we could have a very diverse rushing attack. I've heard before that the best way to stay alive in the NFL without an elite QB is to be very good in at least one aspect of the game. For us, that can be our rushing attack. We still have to do something about that O-line though.. and the WR's.
