That doesn't make sense

If the line is under 8 you'll be all over Texas, but if its over 8 you'll pick OU?

Texas - 23                                            Oklahoma - 22

Longhorns - +9                        

Longhorns coming off 2 SU & ATS wins and getting a generous spot has me heading to the window early. Maybe a SU win is not out of the question.

Texas - PROBABLY under

I might make a play on the moneyline as well once it comes out... I just really love the Texas defense. And with Ash and Mccoy they can move the ball down the field consistently and pick up first downs. Not to mention Malcolm brown is very effective running the ball. Texas hasn't had this good of a running game since Jamaal Charles left. Brown will carry the load with Monroe coming in as an effective speed back. I just hope in this game Mack Brown doesn't make the mistake of using Cody Johnson on short yardage situations. He is too big to squeeze between the tackles and gets stuffed the majority of the time. Don't let me down Mack.

let me be the first of many to educate this good Ole boy prediction.  I live in Oklahoma.  Midwest City to be exact.  If u are in oklahoma then u know what I'm talkin about.  This has got to be the most MORONIC prediction I have seen on this site in a long long time.                   I don't doubt that Ou will win...but 4 tds?   really?!?!?!?       against a Texas team that has steadily been improving?    If Ou covers..and that's a big big if........Ou will be lucky win by 10 let alone 4 tds.           It's Predictions like this that help strenthen the stereotype of meth smoking trailer trash that believe that the Space program is fake and that wrestling is real.

 

BOOMER SOONER.  yuk yuk

I'm leaning to Texas keeping it close and wouldn't be shocked if they pull the upset.  However, most likely I'd say it's best as a 'no play'.  In a game of this magnitude and emotional atmosphere, one has to be really concerned with the youth of Texas.  Several of their best skill players are true freshman...Ash, M. Brown, J. Shipley are all straight out of HS.  Even Case has only played significantly in a few games in his career. 

Yes, they have all played way above their age to this point and Texas has shown potency since they took over.  But this is the OU-TX game and as a veteran of attending around 17 of these and heading to this one, it's a whole other animal inside that stadium.  The emotional swings are insane and things can get out of hand fast.  

That being said, Texas is very talented, has much better schemes than in the past, and has the horses to be in this one til the end.  Also, OU is vulnerable in certain places on defense.  If I had to play this one I'd lean small on Texas with the points.  But the youth factor in a game like this is hard to overlook.  Think I'd rather sit this one out and enjoy the great display of football from two really good teams, and cheer for a big Texas win as usual. 

BTW, as mentioned above, Cody Johnson will continue to be the short-yardage back as awful of a decision as that is.  I can't understand why for the last 3 years they've seen him as the best option with that.  He is huge, but slow off the ball, and just tries to ram it straight ahead with a high pad level.  Malcolm Brown is clearly more able to get one-yard than Cody ever will be.  Malcolm is very hard to bring down because of his tremendous power and balance, and he has far better vision than Cody if he needs to make an adjustment on a clogged hole.  It just makes no sense and will continue to plague Texas on short-yardage vs. strong defensive teams.  They just won't make the switch as much as it sucks to sit through.

Lean towards the points, sharp line and not really a very interesting game.

Okie Homer here......

OU's D isn't what we thought it might be. So it should be close.

For those that follow this series.... The records don't matter. Neither do the rankings.

These teams hate each other and this will be a war.

Leaving it alone.....

Why anyone thinks Texas is winning or covering is beyond me. They have played absolutely no one to date and struggling to beat BYU. The 2 QB system of 2 freshmen will be their downfall in this game. Blitz!

Why you post on here is beyond me... if you actually followed Texas you would know that Gilbert played against BYU that 1st half and Texas was losing 13-3, 2nd half they took him out and Texas outscored them 14-3. Since then the 2 QB system has been prepped for and put into effect and Texas has demolished UCLA and Iowa State on the road. OU beat an overrated FSU team by 10 and a home game against Mizzou by 10. Good victories, but not like they dominated in those games. It is reasonable for people to believe that the youth of Texas' offensive players could be an issue in this game, but is just ridiculous to say that the 2 qb system isn't working. Fact is that they could just pick one of those guys and they would still be 10x better than they were with gilbert. Both are good players
