  • Dammit, looks like we are f-ed

    • Time to see what week 2 of the Mike Stoops-less defense looks like. Hopefully they build on their solid start.

      • So far so good with the Sooners defense. The run defense has been outstanding the past two games. Reminds me of the early 2000s Oklahoma teams.

        • As soon as I praise them they give up a 1st down on a 3rd and 15 QB scramble, leading to a TD a few plays later.

            Looking much better. 124 yards in the 1st half for K State.

            • Oklahoma is going back to the playoffs. I'm calling it now.

              The difference in the defense is night and day since Mike Stoops left.

              • People rave about Noah Fant, I like T.J. Hockenson more.

                  I've wanted him gone for a long time and knew he was holding us back but I am still a little surprised there's been such a dramatic change so quickly.

                    • That ND/Navy game wasn't as close as the final score looked, that supposedly elite defense decided to take a nap during halftime. Stupid MFing Kelly always abandons the run even when it's working and gets pass happy. Sound familiar?

                          Either the Big 12 is really good this year, or total trash. It's hard to tell.

                            Their defense looked uncharacteristically bewildered most of the game. Offense didn't get going til the end of the 3rd. They're going to have a tough time with WV next week.

                              It still pisses me off that we wasted 3 years of Baker Mayfield with Mike Stoops leading the defense.

                              IMO, if Bob Stoops would have retired in the Jan/Feb 2017 time frame rather than waiting until June, I think Lincoln Riley would have possibly made the change at DC right away.

                              But since Stoops announcement gave him less than 3 months prep time before the season started, I can understand why Mike Stoops remained on staff for 2017.

                              That being said, he should have fired him this past offseason shortly after the Rose Bowl. Lincoln had 3 full years to personally witness Mike Stoops' ineptness. So there was no excuse for him to allow Mike Stoops to stay on staff entering the 2018 season allowing him to sabotage yet another season of Oklahoma football.

                                There's a power transition going on within the conference.

                                Teams that have been finishing top 4 in recent years (TCU, OK St, K-State) are trending downward.

                                Teams that have been middle of the pack or worse (Texas, WVU, Iowa State) are trending upward.
