Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners have new life thanks to their win over the Texas Longhorns last Saturday in the Cotton Bowl and a bevy of upsets over the last two weekends. Judging from the comments that came out of Norman on Tuesday the Sooners understand their position not only in the Big 12 conference but also in the national title hunt. However, Coach Stoops realizes that it is all lip service if the Sooners don't take care of business against a very good Missouri team this week.
Obviously the key to beating Missouri is stopping their offense. While the Sooners have the athletes to do that they still face a tall challenge.
Of course Chase Daniel is the fuel that feeds the Missouri offensive machine and for obvoius reasons is one of the better quarterbacks in the country.
Focusing back on the Sooners special teams were a questionmark again on Saturday as OU missed a filedgoal that would have sent the Longhorns fans packing and also gave up way too many yards on kickoff returns.
Sam Bradford also bounced back from his first loss of the season to have a great game against the Longhorns. Part of Bradford's success is his amazing composure, especially for a redshirt freshman, while another part of it is the weapons he has at his disposal. Weapons like Malcolm Kelly.
