@UTEP absolute boatrace, OU spanks them mightily
Florida A@M there should be rules in place to prevent this
Kansas St. At home, off of a bye? could there be a worse spot for K-State.....OU whips them badly every year. Look it up.
@Texas Tech Last year TT beat OU.....in a game that was delayed by lightning for 5 hours....it finished in front of an empty house at 2 AM. Pretty special circumstance wouldnt you say?
Texas (red river rivalry) Without solid QB play Texas is screwed. In my opinion they have big problems under center...David Ash struggled throwing the ball, and he looks to be the starter. UT won't be able to run, OU has a big advantage in this one as well!
Kansas OU is 60-2 at home over the passed 10 yrs (philsteele)
Notre Dame If this one was in south bend then I would agree that it is loseable........but OU is 60 and friggin 2 in norman over the last 10 years!!!! This game will likely be the game of the week, and the Sooners have a huge home field advantage!
@Iowa State I went to ISU for a year back in the day....they know that they are severely overmatched in everyway in this one. The big OSU win last year was in the wake of tradgedy...and it still took a miracle for them to pull off the upset. OU really big in this one.
Baylor Baylor has a shot at being pretty damn good this year, I expect the Florence kid at qb to put up big numbers in replacement of RG3.....but again, OU will be able to run at will and in NORMAN, see above.
@WVU this game fits the mold of a Stoops meltdown.....especially if WVU is ranked and hungry. The sooners can lose this one.
OSU Bedlam......OSU is starting a true freshman QB this season...they play this one coming off of a tough 4 game stretch vs TCU, @Kstate, WVU, TT....and they have to go to Norman.
@TCU TCU has a great program, and they have a better shot than most to beat the sooners.....they do get OU at home, and catch them off of Bedlam.........In my opinion, it is all about depth this late in the season, and with the increase in compete level in TCU's schedule week to week with the step up to the big 12, they should be absolutely beat up by this one. Again, with a chance to play in the title game likely on the line, OU will have a big advantage.
That is not an SEC schedule, a ND schedule or even a Big 10 schedule.
UTEP, Florida A@M, Kansas, Iowa st are absolute pushovers.........K-state, TT, Baylor, TCU are outmatched badly. ND and OSU have to go to Norman, which is a huge advantage to the Sooners. That leaves WVU and Texas to do the work....and no Big 12 title game either.
It will take Landry Jones breaking his leg to screw this one up....the schedule plays to OU's strengths in every way......and no I am not a sooners fan in the least.
There just aren't enough loseable games there to justify going under 9.5 wins...that is why I called the schedule a "cakewalk".
SEC I agree. But get out of here with that ND and Big 10 stuff.
