OU ranked 98th in Country in third-down Defense...In Redzone even worse ..OU opponents have scored points on 100 percent of their possessions...allowed rate of 85.7 percent which ranks 124th in country...I think with the Firing of Stoops..and letting Ruffin McNeill step in Sooners will be well back in the hunt for playoffs contention!!!!

No, not dead yet but Sooners playoff hopes are most likely done. I believe a 1 loss Bama, Ohio St, Georgia, or Clemson gets in ahead of them. If ND runs the table they are in. But stranger things have happened. One or two of the aforementioned would have to lose twice which is possible but not probable. But if that were to happen the Committee would have to consider UCF if they run the table and go undefeated back to back years.

Might as well be done. On a neutral field they would be a double digit dog to clemson Alabama and Ohio State IMO

If they shore up defense & blow everyone out rest of way while winning the conference they’ll make it almost certainly 

They lost early enough to make up for it, lots of work to do though 

firing Stoops was step 1, let’s see if they can win out


Keep in mind many other teams will lose in next few weeks & later in season so it’s not impossible

No way they get in....Clemson/Bama/TOSU are locks for the playoffs. can't see anyone beating them...

ND is a lock if they win out....

Don’t rule out Michigan. Michigan beats Wisonsin, Penn State, & Ohio State, they’ll bump undefeated Notre Dame out of the playoffs.

1 loss Big 12 isn't getting in without some serious chaos going on in the rest of the CFB would.

Can't see Michigan with the only loss they have to the Irish, getting in ahead of an unbeaten Irish team

ND and Alabama receive favortism in the cfb world no matter what. It is what it is. We dont have to like it but we have to deal with it. An undefeated ND is in no matter what  The pundits are having an orgasm over ND. No way the committee leaves an unbeaten Irish team out. I wish Nd would lose and central fla gets in if they win out. If they dont lose a game in 2 years put them in. CF rolled a healthy Auburn team last year in a bowl game.Why the hell not? No guarantee any of the top 4 doesn't drop a game either. Alot of footie left.Bookies will be sure to cash in on more inflated Bama lines

I would give them a 8% chance at best of getting in the playoff 

They will lose again anyways

I have no problem with Michigan getting in if they win out and win the B10 Title game...They would have earned it...The real question is will 2 SEC teams get in...If Bama loses in the SEC ship game to Georgia...they are in with Georgia.......

8% chance the D was on the Field for ever on drive after drive..IF ?? OU win out because they lost early enough they would have a very good chance ..Trust the D will get better after the bye week ...The guy that took over that Defense use be at TTech program he will change things hopefully...This team gets in playoffs Lookout FBall world
