    Caleb Williams 2.0 !!!

    Frankly, I’m glad he’s gone …. Such little appreciation and loyalty … I’d rather start rebuilding the program under Venables and let the Riley era slip away. Williams will most likely be a superstar in the PAC 12 because it’s a much less competitive conference than the Big 12 and he’ll be going...

    Coach Venables

    YES!!!! As far as I was concerned; Venables was THE ONLY CHOICE …. Now, I’m very optimistic about OU going to the SEC & being a major contender - something that was “iffy” due to their ongoing defensive woes. Way to go OU!

    I don’t fault Riley for leaving and taking a higher paying job - I’ve do so myself - I just think his timing sucked cause OU was good to him et al and I think the team, alumni and fans deserved better - but I also agree with your assertion that he wanted to avoid the SEC and thereby moved to a...

    I think it’s kinda’ chicken s—t of him & his staff to not wait and jump ship until after the forthcoming bowl game - this year, OU paid them all very well to do a job they didn’t finish …. I liked Riley but I think the way this all came down was pretty crappy & to my mind, OU deserved better. I...

    Anybody have any inkling that Riley was going to bolt and why?

    Well, Smiles … unfortunately Superman didn’t make it.

    Historically, OU’s special teams have always been somewhat of a question mark. OU beat themselves last night; between the STUPID penalties and the kicking team screw ups, they gave OSU 2 touchdowns; the last being the punt fumble on the 4 yard line late in the 4th quarter … too high of a hill...

    I just hope OU’s the one smiling … but remember; if OU wins, then they’ve got to turn around and do it again in Arlington. So, we get a twofer this year on the Bedlam series … what a way to end the regular season - Boomer Sooner!!

    Well; this could prove to be the proverbial 2-edged sword … this is going to be a tough game & OSU is out to prove something this time; particularly with OU’s forthcoming departure to the SEC - this is probably the next to last Bedlam game unless OU schedules them as an out of conference game...

    I think we might need him!

    They’ve still got to not only offensively win the 4th quarter but also defensively control the 4th quarter - which seems to pose a hurdle for Grinch et al - too many nail biting games this year and an honest appraisal would say that OU is lucky to be 10 - 1 at this point …. I think the pollsters...

    If OU has another “gear”; they need to let clutch out when they get to Stillwater and then hopefully, Arlington …. But we’ll cross our fingers & remain pessimistically optimistic. I just don’t know if Grinch is up to the task

    Well …. OU’s defensive effort seemed better against Iowa State - that is until the 4th quarter when they almost let ‘em get away. And, unless it’s a “blowout”, the 4th quarter is usually when tight games are won. So, the question in my mind is why does the 4th quarter seem to be such a hurdle...

    Since Baylor handed Grinch his butt last week; it’ll be interesting to see how he & the defensive players respond - Iowa St will decidedly be “up” for this Saturday’s game & I’m sure OK State can hardly wait for the Sooners to show up in Stillwater. The final two games will definitely be a test...

    I was at OU during the early mid-70’s; a time when they knew how to play defense. Nowadays, playing good defense seems to be a haphazard concept. The offense’s job is to score points; the defense’s job is to keep the other team from doing so … Defense wins games. Grinch was supposed to be the...
