10) Oklahoma defeats the Mountain Dew mainliners
It was a tale of two halves.
The Sooners, after having spent 30 minutes forgetting how to play defense and trying to have Trevor Knight reenact Sam Bradford, responded after halftime with an opportune and solid defense and ran the ball with force, turning away a much improved and talented mountaineer team 45-33 in Morgantown Saturday night. Couches were set ablaze. Remaining tooth was knocked out.
Drain cooler moonshine flowed like wine. Oklahoma escaped a night game on the east coast no worse for wear.
Samaje Perine broke the will of the West Virginia defense, running for 242 yards, 7.1 yards per carry, and four scores. Trevor knight mushed through an inconsistent throwing day and ridiculous game planning. The secondary was not good. The pass rush had difficulty making hay until late in the game. And Alex Ross had yet another game changing big play. Dude may not be a 20 carry back, but he is a home run threat when he touches the ball.
As I write this column on my return flight from Vegas, emitting foul body smells and doing everything possible to not yiff on a 737, I maintain that despite the first 28 minutes or so, I never got the feeling OU was going to lose. It didn’t make sense that Stoops would allow Knight to throw the ball in the second half as a certain someone allowed him to do in the first. I also believed that at some point the defense was going to get to Clint Trickett, that he wasn’t going to march them up and down the field all game.
This is a very good OU squad. You aren’t going to hold every team on your schedule to no first half points. You aren’t going be able to play your backups every week. In order for this team to be the team they can be, they will have games were things aren’t perfect – where you have to on the road and grind out a win.
Happy Monday to everyone. How many of you are reading this from your fancy pants new iPhone 6 Plus? Just kidding. No one cares about your new phone. You know why? BECAUSE IT’S A PHONE. If you were reading it from a Nokia 5110, then we would care because we’d really like to know how you hacked that brick with an antenna to display websites. And we still kind of want to see if we can beat our old score on snake.
Anyway, as always, I’ve collected the best and the worst of the tweets from the week before, and I’ve placed them right here for you to enjoy. Don’t ever say I didn’t do nothing for ya. Get this week’s tweets after the jump.
We’ve received a bunch of great emails since we started this website in 2007. Perhaps none of them have been better than this gem that Mike Morgan sent us back in June 2011 before he hated us:
Subject: Damn, it’s hot!
Hello LostOgle, as a token of appreciation for the Mike Morgan drinking game ( very clever ) , here is a picture of Marla Morgan, former runner up Miss rodeo USA from bristow, ok, cooling off during a recent hot OKC evening. We hope you approve, May u continue to be this lucky….
Since that first contact, we’ve had an up and down email friendship with Mike and his wife Marla. The highlights include Marla emailing us pics of phallic Roman road signs from the couple’s Mediterranean vacation, and this gem of Marla posing in a swimsuit in front of a muscle car while holding a Wile E. Coyote doll. The low point was when Mike angrily accused us of censorship and a failure to show balls, and threatened to use the evil powers he learned from the dark sith weatherlord Wayne Shattuck to attack Ogle Manor with a microburst.
Out of appreciation for all the good times and material the Morgan’s have provided us, I thought we should chronicle and post all the pics of Marla we’ve obtained over the years. She’s our Hot Girl Friday, and definitely something Mike Morgan doesn’t have to apologize for.
Thursday, September 18th, 2014 was not the best day for the KFOR Weather Team.
Emily Sutton started the day by accidentally saying a bad word during the weather forecast, proving that even adorable little weather princesses can have a shitty morning:
At least she didn’t go to Frontier Shitty.
Not to be outdone, Mike Morgan showed his young apprentice how to really say something bad during that night’s 6pm newscast. Following a serious report about how Oklahoma Muslims are trying to overcome negative stereotypes, prejudices, death threats and general attacks on their religion, Mike Morgan decided to lighten the mood by comparing an Islamic prayer ceremony to a tornado drill.
Here’s the video:
The showdown is upon us.
The battle between good and evil takes place this Sunday at 7 p.m. outside the Civic Center and it is free of charge. The infamous “black mass” faces off against local politicians, clergy and protesters in a ‘no holds barred’ screamfest. Well, I expect one side to scream while the other laughs.
Roman Catholic Archbishop Paul S. Coakley created the ferver by calling attention to the event in fantastic fashion and then suing the group for possessing a consecrated Host, stating that it is owned by the Catholic Church. Gov. Fallin condemned the event, but “shockingly” blamed the wrong satanists, if by “shockingly” you mean “expectedly.” From there the fever grew hotter among the local 700-Clubbers, while the rest of us lived life, ate food and watched Netflix.
Coakley is now worried about possible confrontations between the protesters and satanists. Apparently, the city of Oklahoma City has received threats vowing to block entrances and will have police monitoring the crowds. Those entering the theatre will be searched for weapons. Also, two police officers will attend the black mass to protect the satanists.
Maybe those who are up in arms over the black mass should ask themselves “who is the real threat?”, but that would involve introspection, and of course they are perfect.
Here is your Friday Night in the Big Town.
