That was a tough game to figure. Not. What was tough to figure was why so many based their thoughts on this game on games they saw in previous years by players who are now playing in various NFL cities. Texas looks fabulous this year. Oklahoma looks like a team that is too young and too green to step up in major college football in 2005. We saw it when Texas played Ohio State and we saw it when Oklahoma lost to TCU and UCLA.
So why did some of you still take OU?
It all seemed too obvious as the game was being played. You know, the game that was decided before halftime?
These two teams are not even close right now, and for Mack Brown, boy, is it nice to hear that said in his favor for once.
Vince Young played a solid game, passing for 241 yards and 3 touchdowns and at times still missed open chances. There, I’ll admit he didn’t make every pass, if you’ll admit that you want to rip a QB that threw 3 touchdowns, won the game by 33 points and hardly made a negative play the whole game. What did you want him to do, win by 60? Jamal Charles looked great when they gave him the ball, but that was only 9 times.
The Texas defense looked great, but Adrian Peterson was nowhere close to what he was supposed to be, and Rhett Bomar looked like a high school QB trying to play with the big boys for the first time. I will give him this much, he can take a hit. But, I am not sure what that has to do with holding Jason White’s jock.
So all in all, Texas looked like the #2 team in the country and Oklahoma looked like a team that is 2-3 and should feel lucky if they work their way back in contention for the Holiday Bowl.
Finally, Texas can ask, “How do you like them apples, Oklahoma?”
Texas – OU by the numbers …
For Texas fans, New OU sucks song here …Chance McClain at it again…
