    What am I going to do at home?  There is no sports.  There is a silver lining ESPN may go bankrupt.

    Call me crazy. Two weeks ago I wanted Shaka fired.  He kept putting a team on the court that was a team in name only. Sure they played hard all his teams have but they lacked a spark. Everybody wanted the ball on offense and there’s only one. So you have some injuries to your big names at the bigs and you put in some guys with a fire for the game. They don’t care if they score; they just pick up the trash, play defense and... hustle. And presto a recipe, an identity. If Shaka has learned that his best team  isn’t always , or even most of the time, just the 5 most talented players, but the 5 players who together play the game the best, then I’d be happy to have him back. He seems like a great guy and a good ambassador for the school. But I do want a good basketball team.

    But it hasn’t so far. We’ve had better recruiting classes than ou most years. But it hasn’t shown up on the field.

    The Stoops years don’t matter anymore. The Charlie years don’t matter anymore. But 2017 was still a top 25 class the three years around it were 3, 3, and 7. What have we accomplished.
    One 10-4 season and mediocrity.  And 10-4 is barely better than mediocrity.  
    All I want is for us to live up to the recruiting rankings.  I’m tired of being disappointed a few games into the season.  CTH needs to do something.  He has delivered improvement (from a low bar).  He now needs to break through and deliver.
    And remember ou’s 19th ranked class from 2016 just played in the playoff.  There is no excuse.  Just deliver.
     I have no ill feelings toward ou other than rivalry... And they have an inferior school.  I live in Ohio now and I have friends that went to ou.  I have fun until they and OSU go to the playoffs and we go to San Antonio to play in the Alamo Bowl.

    You are right. Bill Parcells once said “you are what your record says you are.”  And for the last decade in football and basketball  we’ve been mediocre at best and downright awful at worst. I for one am ready for a decade run of excellence in both sports. That’s the best way to shut up the talking (air)heads at ESPN.

    Are you trying to say Shanahan is coming home to coach the DL?

    I don’t know if everyone here is old enough to  get this reference. You’re dating yourself...  and me. 
     
    and we definitely don’t need Danny coaching the team. We want them to stay out of trouble.

    That’s total bs. A sprained knee is a sprained knee; it happens because you land awkwardly not because you hit someone hard in practice. If you separate a shoulder it occurs from the hit not from an accumulation of hits. 
    If you don’t hit in a practice, you tackle like we did under Charlie. I don’t see near as many arm tackles, whiffs and attempted knock downs as we did before Herman...  Still happens but not much.  Clemson has a bunch of injuries; Alabama has a bunch of injuries; Ok State has a bunch of injuries. It’s a physical game played by big people  
    I’m fine with taking targeting and blind side hits out of the game. But not training to hit in practice means they won’t do it in the game. 
    If we want to make it 7 on 7, you don’t have to teach them to hit hard.

    How many of these were from practice?  I saw most of these in games. Should we not hit in games. Maybe we can play the Dartmouth tackle dummies.

    I’m not trying to minimize the Dartmouth revolution here, but exactly how many national championships have they won in the big boy division. For that matter how many national championships, or for that matter conference championships, has Gundy won.
    Coaches who like hard hitting practices include Saban and Meyer. Though I dislike each; their records speak for them.
