After another loss, the consensus is that Oklahoma is officially out of the title hunt. A loss is always tough to swallow. Has this team been under performing? Does a coaching change need to happen? Where is the motivation? There was plenty to rant about in terms of defensive schemes (sayonara to the sharks) and injuries or even the lack of trying to establish the run against a mediocre run defense, but there was somewhat of a different approach to this go around. Normally, we like to give out game balls but this time we each crowned a player the "no so top player" of the game. There will always be talk of what could have been or what should have happened. Oklahoma has seemed to be a solid half-time adjustment team all season long but if we were in the coaches shoes, what is the first thing that we do differently? There is no need to mention the time out that Stoops took to prolong the Baylor Bears final drive, but why use it and then not use the rest especially if it looked as though Baylor was content on going to overtime? Now we are likely forced out of a BCS game with little confidence from Sooner Nation heading into Bedlam...what are the bowl options?
