My initial thoughts . . .
1. I expected a big letdown when Sam left the game. Buechele held up well, even ran a couple times for good yardage. Very pleased with him.
2. Lil Jordan Humphrey – if he were to return to UT next year, he'd be in the Heisman conversation. He is special.
3. Bru McCoy, were you watching LJH tonight?
4. For all the pre-game hype about ISU's defense, we ran the ball pretty much at will on them.
5. It's easy to see that Sam's running ability and the seriousness of that threat make this offense percolate. Without him, its a very different offense.
6. Defense showed up well tonight. Anyone catch Ossai on the game's last play? They were having fun out there.
7. I felt really good about the play calling for most of the game. However, there seemed to be a 4-5 play rotation that kept going. Not sure if by design or because thats what ISU was giving them. But great job overall.
8. We better not coast against Kansas. They played OU a helluva half of football today.
9. My defensive player of the game would be Charles Omenihu (sp?). He played a helluva game.
10. Offensive MVP was LJH. Hon Mention to the duo of Tre Watson and Ingram and the OL.
