    Do it! Tickets are stupid expensive right now....really hoping they drop during the summer.

    Not even our client who is a big name OU guy could get us an inside track on reasonable tickets.

    Yeah, I'm hoping a connection on the Ohio State side can snag me and a buddy some away team tickets. We'll see. Looks like it'd be an expensive trip, but when the hell else am I going to visit Norman, Oklahoma?

    Exactly.

    It's like fares to detroit. Expensive as hell compared to other places. Why? Because they know you goddamn HAVE to go there for something. You have no choice or you would have exercised that option.

    I am going to officially start the fretting. I find it unfortunate that the Sooners play Houston before tOSU. Since I would imagine that Houston is running an offense somewhat similar to tOSU, they get a chance to see what that offense will do and what problems they have stopping it. Mistakes that tOSU may want to exploit after watching the Houston/Sooners game tape may be fixed by the time the good guys get to town.

    Conversely, UH does not have the horses OSU does. So if there is some success in certain aspects of the offense, maybe OSU can exploit them. Or Meyer can talk to Herman and/or watch film about what worked, countered, or just wasn't executed properly. Game plan may be similar, but talent is not. I'm sure UH has more experienced players (what school doesn't after the draft), but they play in week 1. OSU gets them in week 3 and has some game film to watch over to adjust and get better.

    TBH, I don't expect a win, but I would not be surprised if one happens.

    Young team but the QB is mature. Dangerous. We'll have like 3 turnovers and still win by 14.

    I expect it will drop under a TD myself late. I'll be on OSU early and hard.

    This will be the mantra for a while but it comes down to the OL imo.

    Things to feel good about is that OU's not exactly known as an extremely hostile environment nor for their big game prowess. Additionally, I don't know who returns but their Dl from last year wasn't exceptional according to FBO

    Look like they had an especially hard time with power running games.

    Overall, I won't be shocked if OSU loses nor will I be shocked if they win (if that makes any sense). I do think OU is about as good a premier, OOC road matchup as we could ask for.

    Buckeneye I lead, you follow.

    Okie can be run on, the key is slowing down their offense.

    If this young defense continues down the path of what we were given a glimpse of during Spring ball, coming out with a win is very possible.
