    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.

    I hate that I have to work next weekend, at night at that. I'm going to have to record the marquee games and watch them Sunday morning.

    I think Alabama is going to embarrass LSU. LSU is getting a lot of love and praise for once again piling up wins against a bunch of average SEC teams. They're still getting credit for beating "highly ranked" teams even though those teams already have 3 or more losses and we still have about 5 weeks of games to play.

    Must be nice to have wins over potential 4 and 5 loss teams treated like a win over a top 10 opponent.

    So I expect LSU to get exposed to a degree.

    History tells us it’s the latter.

    While true, let’s not discount LSU’s win over Georgia and Alabama not having played a quality team yet this season. Alabama’s schedule this year is embarrassingly weak.
    No Pat McQuistan = No Super Bowl. It's that simple.

    True. Bama's schedule is weak but they've actually earned the benefit of the doubt, IMO.

    And I haven't forgot about LSU's one good win (Georgia). It's just nauseating listening to the talking heads slurp them for having wins over multiple "top 10" teams on their resume. Just because teams like Miami and Auburn were massively overrated early in the year shouldn't qualify them as great wins in November.
