I'll never understand how that happened either. Vonn Bell is also doing fairly well for a backup safety last time I checked. I think it's just proof that Ohio State can only beat itself in the Meyer era.

I came here to point out this exact same thing. It's like comparing Michael Jordan to Larry Bird/Magic Johnson. Michael Jordan was always great, but came to be considered the g.o.a.t after those two had retired & he surpassed their accomplishments. Saban has just been at this a bit longer, but ultimately I think Urban finishes with the better career. The bowl record in my opinion is already tipped in Meyer's favor. And if the 2017 class is any indication, Urban's recruiting is about to hit the next level of legendary. Lets also not forget a saying that's often seen everywhere: don't try to out Bama Bama. Well I'm not saying they run the same offense at all, but they took notes from us. They've switched their approach to recruiting dual threat QB's, and they run more option plays these days. Some might say they're trying to out Ohio State Ohio State on offense while still running that classic Bama defense. It's only a matter of time..

It was my first game. I thought it was great. I clapped a lot, screaming too much makes my head hurt. Lol. But like any normal human being, I made noise when good stuff happened, cussed at the penalty flags, etc. The people behind us sat the whole game and made 0 noise. They were the only ones, but I was happy to stand up and block the view. When script Ohio makes you feel some type of way, you can't sit down, it's unacceptable. Shout out to the small section of students on the north side of the stadium, they didn't quit the whole game & even got acknowledged by Urban.

We all love Zeke, but he belongs in the NFL. Another year and he may have missed his chance to be where he is now, doing what he is now, and also a shot to break records now & in the future. I feel like Mike Weber is basically Zeke without the break away speed and the hurdle.

Yeah I was really surprised to not see Erik Smith in the mix earlier this year. I always thought he had a promising freshmen year, and he's since fell off the face of the earth.

This just reminds me so much of what some analysts were saying about Vonn Miller before he was drafted. If my memory serves me right, a common narrative was to point out he "wouldn't be the next Ray Lewis". And he's not, but it sure as hell doesn't matter. The JJ Watt comparison plagued Joey Bosa, analysts criticised his game. But what got lost in the shuffle here is it's not every day a 6'6'', 275lb guy who can do back flips comes into this league with the exceptional hand usage Bosa has.

This guy is basically me as a Browns fan, except I don't have time to watch them get their asses kicked every Sunday. I'm only watching today because I liked Cody Kessler at USC & I want to see if he flashes some NFL potential.

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.

Comment 18 Sep 2016

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.

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.

Very true. We need to force them to play from behind early. When Perine and Mixon fail to eat on the ground, they typically fall apart. Big game Bob loses his composure and calls some funky plays in this scenario.
Comment 12 Sep 2016
I've been waiting for this game for 6 years. Dated two girls from Oklahoma, one from Muldrow, one from Sallisaw, both OU fans. Both ended on bad terms, this one's personal.

I wouldn't be so down on the rain actually. We now have experience playing in it and it generally rains harder in Oklahoma. If it rains there, both teams can kiss the passing game goodbye save for screens and such. If that happens, I know they can run the option with Mayfield and Mixon & Perine are good players. But Mixon and Perine although not the same, are still somewhat similar players. If it rains in Norman, I think we win because we have a more diverse running game and more players capable of taking a screen pass or jet sweep to the house. We also have a secondary who just showed the nation that you clearly don't want to test them in the rain. The Sooner attack becomes predictable on offense and we make them pay for passing it. On defense, they struggle to defend Houston's tempo in non inclement weather. I also don't think they have the pure speed to compete with us on the edges if the game comes down to running it. So in the words of the Temptation's David Ruffin, I wish it would rain.
