HornSports Members Prediction Thread: OU

Recommended Posts

The money is dead even on this game and the line hasn’t even moved from the opening 7.5. I think the odds makers maybe right on this one so I’ll hate to say it....35-28 OU....doesn’t change the fact that you can’t spell dOUche with out OU!!!

Odds makers had Texas as a dog to TCU and USC.  Go with your heart or gut on this one, not Vegas.

Texas SHOULD have beaten OU last year when they had a Heisman QB and an AA OT along with a moderately good defense.

This year, there's a midget at QB and a defense that is very generous and hospitable with opposing offenses.

If Army can take them to OT at Norman, we should beat them into submission and hear the lamentations of their women.

you can call him whatever you want but that doesn't diminish his talent.  he will be the fastest qb that UT D will face to date; maybe all year.  if we don't put pressure on him AND contain him, it's going to be a long day.  if we can get to him, which we haven't all year, maybe we can rattle him.

i'm going with the heart.

Oh I did I have Texas +7.5 lol. Still hoping we win outright. But the realist in me can’t help but temper my expectations.

We can if and but all day. I could retort with "we might break him in half" or he could get stuck to the bottom of someone's cleat.

I think his most impressive attribute Saturday will be how far he flies after the hit.

38-14 OU

Our offense looked anemic against K St. If we can’t keep our offense on the field our D will wear out. Herman beat two ranked opponents at home and won a game on the road but he hasn’t proved he can lead us to a victory over OU at the Cotton Bowl. 

He said they went too conservative too early preserving the lead.  I’m thinking he realized 19 isn’t enough.  I expect a better offensive output. Ou still has Stoops calling their D so I see our offense getting in gear.  The RBs have a good day and Sam chips in the ground game and Texas goes for 200 on the ground and wins TOP.  

Texas 34-30

This all is going to come down to our weakest link holding up... our pass rush. Our run d is impressive and our pass defense is pretty good when we are not making bone headed decisions. 

K Boyd better be ready because the whole stadium knows that they will be targeting him first.

Big game for sterns coming up.

I don't think our pass rush has been that bad. It's not as good as we were expecting so far, but I think it's been decent enough (I'd be interested in seeing some stats).  Main point is if that's our weak link we're doing okay. Losing Roach didn't help of course.

Totally agree about Boyd. As he goes the game may go.

    • SHANE  by Jack Schaefer He rode into our valley in the summer of '89. I was a kid then, barely topping the backboard of father's old chuck-wagon. I was on the upper rail of our small corral soaking in the late afternoon sun, when I saw him far down the road where it swung into the valley from the open plain beyond. ... (how it began)
      .......
      He was the man who rode into our little valley out of the heart of the great glowing West and when his work was done rode back whence he had come and he was Shane.   - The End - Back in late '80s, training one weekend on location--a month in advance--for a triathlon at Bass Lake near Yosemite, at the time living in the Bay Area, I visited a local bookstore in nearby Oakhurst, the shop owned by a lady, who, as I was browsing, up and asked me my favorite books, and I said Education of Little Tree and SHANE. Turns out the lady was the daughter of... Jack Schaefer, who, at the time was living in Santa Fe, NM.  He passed away a few years later, in 1991. As a writer of the west he had never been farther west than Ohio at the time he wrote the novel. He was a newspaper man, staying up late at night writing essays on his own time, then wrote SHANE. I first saw the movie in Silsbee, year it was released. My grandparents lived nearby in Kountze. Years later came to appreciate the book as much as the film, if not more so. Recommend U. of Nebraska Critical Edition (1984). Essays, analysis, background.
