Game Thread Ohio State vs Oklahoma, 09/09/17 @ 7:30 ET (ABC)

    Exactly. Not to mention the adaptation and growth of the players just now starting summer camp to the Indiana game. Some of these guys will be completely different players on August 31st when compared to August 1st. Mix in some game experience and there you go.

    For a first road trip as a head coach, after never being a head coach on ANY level, going to Ohio Stadium isn't going to be a picnic. Dare I say their coach may be as nervous if not moreso than some of his own players. It has absolutely (as @Jaxbuck said) nothing in common with the Virginia Tech game ( :lol:) from 2014.

    I think Lincoln could bring a fresh perspective to Norman. There's also very little room above a hall of fame coach like Stoops and a grand canyon beneath him when it comes to how the next coach can do. The coach Lincoln is facing is arguably the greatest college football coach of the past few decades* who loses 2 games during his disappointing years at OSU.

    * - Saban's Alabama dynasty is clearly the flag bearer, but Urban vs Nick is not a close fight when comparing their previous college stints.

    Big Game Bob kind of regressed from his run of dominance from 2000-2004. After the loss to USC in the national championship in '04, OU just never seemed to carry that same swagger ever again. But I think it has been slowly rebuilding the last two years with our Playoff appearance in '15 and going 9-0 in Big XII conference play with a Sugar Bowl win in '16. Once OU starts bringing in the big-time recruits (starting with the 2017 class and the already promising 2018, 2019 and maybe even 2020 classes), I think you'll see OU reach that early 2000s level of dominance once again. When we won the championship in 2000, our roster was filled up with guys from Blake's 1996-1998 classes and Bob Stoops 1999-2000 classes. None of Blake's first two classes were all that talented, but his 1998 class did have Roy Williams and Rocky Calmus. The 1999 class was unheralded, but produced guys like Torrance Marshall, Josh Heupel, Quentin Griffin, Jason White, etc. And only one freshman played from the 2000 class on that year's team (Renaldo Works).

    This year's 2017 team only has one top 10 class (according to Rivals) on its roster which is the 2017 class, but our 2013 and 2014 classes were the best in the Big XII. Our 2015 and 2016 classes only ranked below Texas in the Big XII, but we did bring in one five-star in Caleb Kelly as well as other blue-chip recruits in Neville Gallimore, Dru Samia, Bobby Evans, and Jordan Parker. I think the 2017 Sooners will be better than both the 2015 and 2016 Sooners, and we're already loaded for 2018 with Kyler Murray replacing Mayfield and an even better defense with more talented recruits coming in.

    ShowMeBuck You know what? Chicken butt.

    Pretty sure Bosa runs faster than an Arkansas doughnut eater.

    Mayfield runs for his life and the good guys prevail.

    That's a good question to ponder.

    Both routinely make leaps of logic that are so hairy they would scare Evel Knievel. Both are skrong in the way of the sunshine pumper.

    At the end of the day though, tha Kid saw Illinois as a top 5 program while our Sooner is just being ultra optimistic about OU beating OSU. The latter is infinitely more realistic than the former.

    The Sooner is a good ship and takes the ball breaking well (so far).

    I gotta vote for tha Kid still keeping the absurd sunshine pumper heavyweight belt.

    Agreed on all counts. When I suggested bringing the juice, I was referring to substance as opposed to the empty calories of all that the Ilinii would be. Just wait... you'll see...

    No I'm not a dad, but I could do better than the ones who let their daughters work at strip joints or breastaurant chains. That's for sure! :wink:

    There can be no, ZERO conversation about the energy of coaches without mention of coach Coombs. :biggrin: Carry on
