Thoughts? Seems Tech fans have given up & gone into hiding after last weeks trap game. I like OU's chance riding a 4 game win streak into Lubbock, these freshman & sophmores are making a decent season out of it considering what happened to start things off. Afterall Stoops has Leach's playbook in his back pocket.
If OU wins this Sat I think they should be extrememly happy with the turnout of thier season even though they do have the advantage of the big 12 in a down year.
At one point it looked as if they wouldn't even make a bowl game and now they have a chance to go 8-3 with all of thier loses to top 15 teams with a combined record (at this point) of 29-2.
That's pretty respectable for a team in major rebuild mode.
Tech has been the type of team that has always had it pretty easy the first part of the season and then seemed to crawl up the final stretch. With a few friends of mine I predeicted at the beginning of the season they would end up with 4 loses. Constant firepower just can't overcome a solid well rounded D. You know Tech will score points... you just have to keep them to a minimum and play your game.
I have to agree with you on that one, the way the season started, I was bummed. They've lost 3 games to teams that aren't to shabby & according to several sites, they have the toughest schedule in Div. I this season.
Hopefully they'll keep up the pace & win out for a shot at the Cotton Bowl.
I bet you all know who I will be rooting for. Stoops does seem to have Leach's ticket but hopefully this year that will change. Additionally, Leach usually pulls out a win after suffering a loss such as OSU last week.
It will be intersting to say the least because both of these teams will be fighting for the Cotton Bowl.
