Happy bye week greetings, Sooner Nation. It’s likely most of you are still stinging from last week like I am. You also know nothing makes a regular-season, upset loss for the Oklahoma Sooners worse than an excruciatingly long extra week through which to ruminate about the disappointing game that just passed.
Alas, here we are, Sooner friends and fam. A season that seemed on its way to possible immortality has lost a significant chunk of luster following the perplexing performance against K-State, as Oklahoma — once entrenched in position for a third-consecutive trip to the College Football Playoff — is now 7-1 and ranked 10th in the inaugural CFP rankings. There are so many things to unpack from last week’s loss, but this is neither the time nor place to rehash old wounds.
Nonetheless, the all-too-familiar, underperforming loss aside, seeing this edition of the Sooner offense, led by Jalen Hurts, sustain a comeback on the road and look every bit as poised to reel off a dominant finish to the season is reassuring. I honestly don’t know if winning out the rest of the way could still lead to a CFP berth (with a host of teams that need to stumble along with the overall outlook for OU’s strength of schedule), but this is college football, where crazy happens on the regular. All of the Sooners’ preseason goals are still attainable.
It’s time to root for chaos, and chaos we shall have. Pretty familiar, right? Boomer.
Head on down to the comments section for the game thread, where we’ll be asking questions, making predictions and discussing the day’s action with y’all. We also have a college football TV schedule (with streaming links) down at the bottom of the post.
ICYMI, here’s the latest episode of Oklahoma Breakdown, where Jack and Kam discuss OU’s loss to K-State, the program’s big picture moving forward, talk about College Football Playoff scenarios, along with answering plenty of Twitter questions.
Also, be sure to check out this week’s edition of Blatant Homerism Podcast, where you can hear Allen and The Skinny make their picks for the biggest games from around the country on this wretched bye week.
