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!!

Super bowl? Not quite my friend. Yes, win the conference and play a quality opponent in your bowl game, but the super bowl will be in the future when we knock off a Bama, tOSU or Georgia for the elusive eighth natty. At least in my opinion.

The Natty would be OU’s 82nd Championship!!
AT&T would be 81st !!
Beating OSU for the Big12 Championship after beating them today for the Oklahoma Super Bowl!!

Just finished the game and compelling thoughts. Do we actually have a special teams coach or is it an assistant line coach that says”go get ‘em” and hopes for the best. On another note, If the QB is on the ground and there are 4 big boys standing there to pick him up, either they dont have a clue what to do or they aren’t talented enough to make a difference. I am trying to figure it out.

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 to climb late in the game. Current projections put OU vs Alabama in the Sugar Bowl; so let’s look forward to handing Saban his butt. Great thing about college football - there’s always next year!

Does anyone really believe Riley got a call from USC immediately after the OSU game with an offer he couldn’t refuse? The smell test makes me believe it was a done deal weeks ago which kind of coincides with the lackluster and inconsistent coaching and playing the last 4 games not to mention missing his coaching show. Just a strange coincidence that doesn’t seem right. He must think we just fell off the turnip truck.

Lincoln took a Couple Hours off 2 weeks ago!!
Personal Reasons!?!
I believe his Agent was updating him on the Two Jobs!!
LSU & USC !!!
Once the Bedlam Game was over,
Then he could call back the School of his Choice!!
That’s why it came together so Quickly!!!
Full Control & Resources for his Staff were the Difference!!!
Make no Mistake!!
$100M secures his Family’s Future!!
Common Sense sez any of us would make the Same Decision!!!
OU will be just fine!!
80 Championships & Counting!!!

Oh I totally agree. I remember Schnelloenburger, Gomer Jones, and Blake. We will rebound but our immediate hit with current players leaving and recruits changing their minds will be hard to navigate. You can’t blame Riley for leaving when he gets 110 mil, both his houses bought for $500,000 over asking for each, a $6,000,000 home in Cali and the use of a private jet anytime. It is always a little unsettling though when you are looking into the unknown not knowing what might be next.

15-20 Transfer Portal of Current OU Players !
Half of Both 22 & 23 Recruits!!
Riley will Raid PAC 12 Rosters & Take his Pick from Transfer Portal Nationwide!!
Plus Traditional Recruiting!!!
Probably 75-80 % Change in USC
Roster !!!
Can you say Overnight Success!!!
PS ; Caitlin Loves Jewelry!!!

Probably right. He will have an instant powerhouse if he plays his cards right. That’s yet ANOTHER thing that pisses me off. Instant success, while OU struggles to find solid footing.

That still doesn’t make it right.

Take count of FACTS:
Saturday: OU loses to OSU
Sunday: Quiet
Monday: 3pm announcement made.

WHOA! BACK UP!

Questionable play calls after the great run by Caleb that cost us a chance at winning bedlam? It surprised ALL of us that Riley didn’t pull some gadget play out of the hat If he was going to run high risk plays. If not, why not? Between that and questionable officiating, it’s no wonder they lost. Regardless, now OU has a month off instead of having to prepare for the CCG this week, and/or a possible berth in the CFP. A good time for a breakout.

Sneaking off in the middle of the night with his supposedly non contracted coaching staff pretty much intact? And only a PUSH by Stoops makes him have to address the team??? OMG!!! Sure coach…a snap decision that affects every coaches family and friends lives readily agreed upon at a moments notice? PLUS, KNOWING it was wrong and how it came about making it an impossible scenario for you to say the right things to the team. Right….

SIX…Count ‘em…SIX decommits within 24 hours of the news breaking, including three top recruits from the LA area that are now committed to USC. Add to that, matching SIX OU starters entering the transfer portal within 48 to 72 hours. PLUS Caleb on the fence of what his future plans may be.

And we are suppose to believe the initial contact, terms of the agreement, and the resulting “get out of town” happened within THREE DAYS?

Well Riley…did you go ahead and take the furniture from your old office?

Shameful….shameful…

I will never Root for USC, although I was born 15 minutes from the Coliseum!!
Texas & OU left the Big 12 for a Larger piece of the Pie!!!
High School Football Players want to go to the NFL & Financial Riches!
If your Employer offers you $1M
To live in OKC or $2M to live in LA,
How much time do you need to decide?!?
Football is Monumentally different than the Days of the Wishbone & a Cloud of Dust !!
Now the Darn Transfer Portal & NIL
Provides a Quicker Path to Riches for 17 & 18 year olds !!!
Of Course Football is governed by the Money Chase!!!
Lincoln is Married to Caitlin not OU or USC !!
She is his most Frequent Advisor!!
How about every night!!!
Bob Stoops is the Reason I Root for OU starting in 1999 !!!
But I Hold no Animosity or Anger towards Riley!!
I was raised in Lubbock right down the Road from Muleshoe Texas !
I don’t wish anyone to be Held Back in their Career !!
Good Luck to Lincoln & His Family!!
PS; Caleb has already decided but why would’nt he play in his First Bowl Game then enter the Portal !?!
Boomer!! Smiles

1. I’ll never root for them either. Especially after the thrashing we received in 2004.
2. I would stay in Oklahoma for 1 million. A nice home…nice car…invest the rest and live off interest dividends. I lived in California in the 70’s. 2 million would go very fast out there right now for the basic needs. House in California 1973-paid 30k. Same house sold in 1978 for 57.5k. Same house today appraised at 330k. Get the idea?
3. Agree with the rest except letting go what Riley did. I can forgive but won’t forget.
4. Okay. Let me get this straight…born in
LA…raised in Texas…live in Arizona? Wow Smiles…you really get around!
