    OU pathetic defense really makes watching games a bore. running up and down the field scoring almost at will by both teams is not compelling football

    OU may have legitimately blew the best chance they had at a National Championship the past two years because of their next level terrible defense.

    It's honestly incredible. I have never seen such a disparity between the offensive and defensive side of the ball ever in my 26 years of life.

    It seems pretty similar disparity to the best Texas Tech teams at their peaks around a decade ago, though OU's offence is better, the defense may be too.

    Going to be a lot of debate the next two weeks between OU, Ohio St and Georgia depending on how the conference championship games come out. Bama needs to take care of business against GA to get them out of the talk. Vaunted Mich defense takes it on the chin giving up 5 TD passes. Gotta love that “real football” they play - Jim “establish the run” Harbaugh.

    And then to top off the great football weekend, the longest (tie) and highest scoring game in modern college football history. TxA&M and LSU played to 7 overtimes!

    Not sure I have ever seen a coach get the Gatorade bath and then lose the game! Crazy finish there!

    I have a felling OU will end up at 4 if they beat Texas. Kyler vs Tua will provide alot of ratings, which equals lots of money for the networks.

    i don't think that an ou victory over texas next week is a foregone conclusion... but assuming that both ou and ohio state win next week, i think that ou's win over #9 texas will count more than ohio state's win over #21 northwestern.

    the worst case scenario for ou (other than losing next week) is if alabama loses to georgia and the committee only drops a one-loss alabama team to #4.

    A week after winning a 52-51 game with Maryland. Hopefully they the committee continues to take a harsher view of their blowout loss to Purdue than our close loss to Texas. If we beat Texas, we will have beaten all of the teams on our schedule, so we have that going for us. Really couldn’t have gotten a better matchup for us in the Big 12 Championship.

    I'm just glad that if OU beats Texas and doesn't make the playoff they won't have to face LSU in the Sugar Bowl. Could be a rematch with Georgia though if they lose to Alabama. Then it would be Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Ohio State in the playoffs.

    would be fun to see OU play 'Bama in the Semis.

    it would come down to which defense can get a couple of stops, and you'd have to think that is 'Bama.

    Wouldn't underestimate or overestimate this year's OU football team.

    Remember 2014 Oklahoma-Alabama Sugar Bowl classic:



    Advise you not to get too excited as you reminisce about the past; Sooners had an above average & hungry defense.

    And Bama was essentially playing a consolation BCS game that OU was lucky to sneak into after a disappointing season. Still was a great win but OU definitely wanted it more (and Trevor Knight decided he was Brett Favre for a game). A playoff game would be higher stakes for both teams and we would definitely get Alabama’s best shot this time. We’d probably be given similarity low odds of winning though so I like going in as a big underdog.

    Time to hate the horns again and become Bama/Northwestern fans for the weekend!

    Letter from the President: Executive Selections

    Dear Sooner Family,

    Over the past few months we have been working diligently to fill vacancies in executive leadership positions. We are following a process approved by the Board of Regents as we search for the best possible candidates for these positions. Ten executive and top-level positions were posted in August and September and advertised nationally to help ensure a wide and diverse set of candidates.

    Once applications are received by the university, each is screened based on the requirements described in the job descriptions. Each position is assigned a search committee that recommends several candidates to me before I take the final recommendation to the Board of Regents. As would be expected, search committees for positions involving significant faculty, staff and student interaction have greater representation from those constituencies. Similarly, positions with multi-campus responsibilities have committees that include representatives from each campus. Input from Faculty Senate, Staff Senate, and Student Government was considered for the composition of the search committees.

    I am pleased to announce that we are making great progress on the executive searches and that I will be presenting multiple individuals to the Board of Regents for formal approval at the December Regents meeting. If the candidates begin their service with the University prior to Board action, their service will be clearly noted as being contingent upon Board approval.

    Sincerely,
    Jim Gallogly
    OU President

    Looking like the baton may have been passed to Texas. They may run the Big 12 for the next few years.

    OU needs to hope that we have another Heisman level QB waiting in the wings because the talent level on defense simply isn't capable of competing.
