Yet another in a series of 40 minutes of boring football coupled with 20 minutes of utter domination, the Oklahoma Sooners defeated SEC
bound perennial doormat Texas A&m 41-25 last Saturday afternoon, proving once again it doesn’t have to be night game in order for me to get rip-roaring drunk before kickoff. Oklahoma slept walked through a generally boring first half before the Aggies Mike Shermaned their way to a 0-28 point run to start the second half. OU again looked average for much of the game, and like a national champion for a quarter and a half.
*someone needs to ask this girl who Eric Montross is*
Proving (maybe…) that Week 8’s loss to Texas Tech was a fluke, the Oklahoma Fighting Sooners demolished the previously unbeaten Kansas State Wildcats 58-17 in Manhattan. Oklahoma again showed a propensity for pissing me off by pussy footing around in the second quarter, turning a 14 point lead into a 17-14 deficit by allowing nearly 200 yards rushing in the first half. Then the team we all thought they were appeared from the locker room and put up 35 straight points in the first 20 minutes of the second half to cruise to victory.
When Michael Hunnicut’s field goal clanged off the upright on Saturday night and it became apparent Texas Tech was going to pull out a shock victory over Oklahoma, all of us Sooner fans coped differently. Some people drank, some drank more, others drank even more than that. Everyone pledged to avoid the Sports Animal all week.
The Sooner players handled it by calling a team meeting. Among the topics discussed were the “teams goals [sic], which still included winning a national title, and Travis Lewis apologizing for comments he made about injured teammates after the game.”
Okay, well, this team isn’t winning a national title, but it’s fine to hold out hope and keep playing like you have a chance, and it’s nice that Travis Lewis apologized for his boneheaded remarks, but that’s not really much of a meeting. Surely something else came up? After the jump, our best guesses at some of the other topics covered in the Sooners’ players-only meeting.
Sorry for the slight error in calling “Oklahoma State” Oklahoma. I don’t have an editor. Get over it.
That being said … Poke fan, I am not going to do your team justice this week. I am an unabashed OU fan and alum so it should come as no shock that the Great Storm of 2011 gets all my focus this week.
You should be very proud of your team and your coaches. OSU once again won on the road, defeating the Missouri Tigers in Columbia by three touchdowns. OSU again made plays when said plays needed to be made. The defense will not break. The offense, without it’s best player for much of the game (see OU fan, you can win even if someone gets hurt), still ran up and down the field on Missouri. And now OSU is 3rd in the BCS. Amazing.
So that being said …
