Just Imagine What Could've Been...

But let’s back up a bit. OU was preseason #4 and had dropped to sixth when they were upset by Collin Klein-led Wildcats at home. If they hadn’t dropped this game, right now they’d be in the national title talk, especially when you consider the fact they have to play Texas, West Virginia, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, AND TCU, who, as of this week, were ranked in the top 15. Given the fact that the BCS loves strength of schedule (which typically favors SEC and Big XII conferences), OU would have been in a great position. I’m usually not one to harp on what could have been, because crying over spilled milk is pointless. But after watching the late night Florida State upset, I couldn’t help but to wish things were different. OU’s performance Saturday in Lubbock was impressive, and kept in tact Bob Stoops’ record of never losing back-to-back conference games. Texas was certainly ready for West Virginia this week, but in the end, the Mountaineers had too much offense for em. It will certainly be interesting to see how Texas rebounds next week against an OU team ready to get back on its feet.
