It is in Webster's, now
A solid running attack will open that up. The state of oklahoma is very windy at times. We'll see
Your last paragraph just perfectly defined a Big 12 team.
The wind was crazy all Tulsa game. Rainy 3/4's of the game, too. Just saying, that could be a factor in the difference
But oklahoma has keys to a Camero.
Our defense has been nails. I hope we can push the pocket and hold the line at the DT positions. That is Oklahoma's strength vs us with Perine and Mixon. We cannot have a version of last year where MSU just repeatedly ran between tackles to the opposite of Washington. If the DTs can push the pocket, I already know our DEs will no doubt apply pressure. Mayfield will have no where to go. But if they don't he'll get loose. I can't wait for a game next week. Go Bucks!
Get well Dobbins. Columbus can't wait to have you as Zeke II
This defense won't give up 24 to anyone currently on our schedule this year. They gave up 3 points, Saturday. I'll give you the low end of your range and say on a stretch, Tulsa gets 17.
Let's hope Ok St wins out and we can destroy their Oklahoma institution too, in the championship game. Our government once tried to give away land to convince people to move to Oklahoma. Most saw that rat hole and kept going for Texas. Go Bucks!
I should have read the posts. You Gents have it covered.
You forgot to mention the Austin females of all ages! Hank sings it, "and the best looking women I've ever seen have been Texans and all wearing jeans."
I agree with your point you don't have to be a competitive jerk. I wouldn't lump Pete Carrol in with your mentioned group of example good guys, though. And the aforementioned good guys are from a different era so this Twitter back and forth stuff wouldn't have happened with Madeen, JT, Vermiel, JJ, Walsh, and even Dungy. I'd imagine today's pro coaches don't Twitter but rather have member of the organization that handles on their behalf.
They teach and are taught to make everything a compitiition. Everything.
Hard to tell in Osweiller playing without his Pro Bowl LT, starting RT and their starting center out.
Great D, I agree but let's put that 31 in context. That was after double overtime and short fields in OT to deal with under overtime rules
Not so sure he would. Latter in career Tress faced an undersized FLA front got down by two TD's and finally came out and committed to ground game. Pittman got the ball 4 straight times and resulted in an 80 yards 4 play drive. D comes out after kickoff and holds up forcing a punt and game looks to be changing. However, OSU then comes out on offense after unstoppable previous drive on the ground and Troy Smith throws 3 straight incompletions being bombarded by that athletic front againt our flat footed non athletic pass blockers. Game over
That style of OL was close to the end of line. Especially their training methods and non expectations to be athletes. UFM latter shattered that era of linemen with what he did with his athletic Florida D front vs OSU in national title game. The '14 and '15 OSU D front with Bennett, Washington, Bosa, Lewis, Lee, McMillan and Perry were much better than even that FLA D front was.
Score touchdowns in the redzone
"We don’t kick field goals. We go for it on fourth down a bunch in the red zone, because the stats’ll tell you that the chance to get seven is worth the reward of just three, especially when you’ve got a good defense."
I wish Herman had been around to tell this to John Cooper when we had Orlando Pace, Eddie George, a good D and we're kicking FG's on 4th and 1 against michigan. We'd have another National Title in our trophy case.
Does JT get to finish what he started in this hypothetical game for the '14 team? '02 defense would give Cardale fits
further yet, is Braxton available for '14 in Hypothetical game as an athlete?
Both those teams beat 2002 team.
My concern is DT. What got to see a bit of these guys last year especially late. They were fine vs fitness teams, but MSU literally ran to whatever side Adolphus didn't line up on late in that game over and over and kept the chains moving for that last drive. Hill was pushed LB depth even on QB sneak
I like Clark's fire and apprent willingness to compete. I think that will propell him to outperform Martell. There's a chance Martell is as good as he's gonna get, right now. There's that chance with every recruit. When they come from being the very most elite at their schools and conferences to THE elite of the country all in one locker room, lets see how each handles then. Something tells me Clark will flourish
Who's the better student and will have the easiest adjustment to college level coarses? That has to be considered as we decide who to chose. If I had to choose, give me JK. I don't think he will take visits if came comes on but won't waver. The other schools he'd consider are taking backs too. If he went to a school also taking another back he'd look like he was ducking Cam. I think JK should not duck anyone and become a Buck
