I am a huge sooner fan and they have broken my heart over the past 5 years.
There are a couple of things at fault.
2003: shouldn’t have even played LSU after getting killed in the big 12 title game. OU should have played in another at large bcs game (a loss that could have been avoided)
2004: straight up got beat by an USC NFL team
2005: great win over the 8th ranked team in the country
2006: backed into the bcs game after Texas beat OU during regular season and plus they figured Boise would just lie down. (I thought Brent should have got fired after not putting someone in the end zone for the hook and ladder TD)
2007: straight up beat by a WVU team that was one play away from playing in the championship.
2008: Once again backed into a bcs game when Texas beat them during the regular season facing a better opponent
A lot of theses heart breaks occurred because OU half the time didn’t deserve to be in that game.
Now what’s going to happen in the future? Is OU going to get 5 star recruits after another disappointing championship lose???
Should they just say screw conventional QB's and put a pat white/tebow-esk QB in there to run around? (Which I feel is so cheesy now in college football)
Maybe stoops needs to put his athletes on D just like he did in 2000 & 2002…and also get back to the heavy run offense that can control a game.
I would love to see OU win another championship again in my life time, but I don’t know if it can happen now.
But I feel Bob is getting out recruited by Texas recently and we all know we have to beat Texas every year to go the championship.
I hope coach stoops can turn it around and build his program ever stronger with some new ideas.
