Oregon had the best defensive front that OU will play this entire year. The

Thats why the sooners are 4-0 without breaking a sweat. Those are all teams who dink and dunk the football passing. The defense just has to play soft and allow the plays in front of them. You cant be aggressive against any of those offenses, or you'll get burned. the defensive mind set will be different come saturday. Against an all running Texas team, you will see the same "Pin yur ears back" type D from Oklahoma, that youve seen in years past. Count on it.
The only really good team Texas has beaten so far is Arkansas and I'm not affraid to admit that.
And the only reason they came away with a win, is because of a mental mistake the opposing QB made, otherwise, tejas had given the game away.
you saw Adrian Peterson go down to the ground in pain., I think this may affect him just enough to slow him down.
Thats the beauty of it. Adrian isnt even the starter yet. Weve got 3 other capable guys that can be plugged into this offense, and succeed.
Again, OU got OWNED the past 2 games they played against ranked opponents (KSU and LSU) so hopefully Texas can make it 3.
Correction...they got WHOOPED the last 2 games of the season. It was because they had no running game. With NO running game, you can blitz the poop out of the QB. With the qualioty run game that oklahoma brings this year, if you try to blitz on a regular basis, you are gonna get a healthy dose of Adrian Peterson going down the sideline for 6. Its not a 1 dimentional offense like last year.
Either way, it should be a good game. Im impressed that there are some Texicans here who are actually talking x's and O's about this game, instead of beating their chest and talking about "We are Texas."
