    How many losses do we take?

    What say you?

    Big chance we lose next week even though TX sucks. But obviously so do we.

    Baylor is probably a loss. So is the Pokes. Not sure about ISU, as I haven’t watched them this year.

    Tech could be a loss as well.

    Sounds like a good question for Gabe and Teddy.

        Gawd forbid we lose to KU at home. That will put more than a few people over the edge - literally.

          This ain’t your average Kansas team and same can be said for OU. If any more of this shit continues for OU I don’t see how we can be favored in any other game.

            At this point, the only teams I think they can beat are KU at home, WVU, and maybe Tech.

            I have no idea.

              Dear god sweet baby Jesus, don’t let this happen! We enjoy having that over texas! Leave some joy in our lives! Please?

                Can we cancel OU/OSU forever before this year’s game?

                  We play like we did today might be looking at 3-9

                      LOL you think it matters where we play? Would we have held TCU to only like 50 if it was at home?

                        For all you guys wishing for something , maybe you ought to start wishing for OU to get "Bowl Eligible".

                          I figured that would make you happy. You love seeing OU fans miserable.

                            ….I don’t think the coaching staff will tolerate any more losses…..the team, I’m not so sure

                              As many as needed.

                                    I don't see any game as a sure win. TCU could have put 100pts on us today.

                                            hopefully ku will overlook us and we can sneak up on them and get 1 more win...

                                                Remember when SoonerKA asked if mid-season walk-on tryouts were a cause for concern? He may have been on to something.

                                                  I know we're gonna take one next week, Texas gonna run rule the Sooners, when the Sooners don't have a QB.

                                                  Our only hope was to get into a shootout and now that's out of the question.

                                                    Ugh… I voted 4… but meant 4 more.

                                                      Today had to be rock bottom. So as long as there is consistent improvement moving forward, I'm fine with 6-7 losses.

                                                      I'm really fine with however many losses. I still enjoy watching the games regardless. More enjoyable to get a win though.

                                                        The idea of losing to the worst texas team since Charlie Strong is upsetting.

                                                        As for the rest of the league, consider this season the Big XII Good-Bye, Good Riddance Revenge Tour.

                                                        OU can expect teams that are able to run up the score.

                                                          Maybe Kansas will be our “trap” win game.

The shitty coaching that led to the OSU loss in 2014, which sent us to a bowl to get whipped by Clemson was the best thing that happened to this program (even if that only last a couple years)

I also never expected us to be this bad. I'm going to weather the storm calmly and see how this all plays out. In the mean time, the pants pissers do provide great entertainment.

Many of our defensive players are broken beyond repair and need to be replaced. Period. Our offense can no longer bail the defense out. It’s not Brent’s fault that our QB couldn’t complete a pass to wide open receivers all day.

                                                                                    Everything snowballed against TCU. We have to regroup and continue to fight. This season is going to suck but I believe Brent is the right man for the job. It’s just going to take time. It’s going to get worse before it gets better.

                                                                                        OU fans claiming this is a talent or recruiting issue are not correct. This is a current coaching staff problem rooted in player development and culture.

                                                                                        We saw this on an individual level last year where Rattler was hyped to be the next great OU QB and ended up struggling. Now the same thing is happening to the entire team. I think at some point the players have had their ego stroked for so long, been told how great they are, ranked high in preseasons polls, etc and then a team like KSU comes in and just our works OU with the roster and only 3 4/5 star players to OU's 52.

                                                                                        People keep bringing up how Saban struggled his first year at Bama are also off base as Bama was in rebuild mode, OU was coming off a solid season with a top 10 roster.

                                                                                        BV woke up on third base, thought he hit a triple a couple of games in, and then got exposed by Klinemen/Dykes.

                                                                                        Lets not forget Dykes is also a first year coach, in full rebuild mode of a team that had to fire it's legendary coach. They are simply doing a better job in year 1.

                                                                                            It’s a poor excuse. We’ve been outplayed and outcoached. We have good talent. Not good enough to consistently challenge Georgia, Bama, tOSU…but definitely good enough to have an advantage over Big 12 schools.

                                                                                            There is a major cultural and philosophical change going on. It’s pretty common to have growing pains when you have major shifts in those points. As an OU fan, we just have to hope it is just growing pains.

                                                                                            Losing sucks. We’ve had a long tradition of winning and dominating the Big 12. We have been spoiled with consistency. But when a coach leaves, takes key players and coaches, there is a massive disruption in consistency.

                                                                                            I’ve said it all along and nothing has changed. I sincerely hope BV is the guy to get us NC worthy. Only time will tell. I do feel extremely confident that Lincoln Riley was slipping here and would never win a NC in Norman.

Even they would tell you the previous coaching staff was confusing to say the least. As for defense, we have players that have been poorly coached that can’t read basic keys. They may have been ranked high in HS but they haven’t developed beyond that.

                                                                                              As for offense, we have some pieces but our QB couldn’t complete a forward pass yesterday. Is that the coaches fault?

                                                                                              If we hired Saban tomorrow, the first thing he’d do is cut everyone on defense and buy the best 50 players he could find. Then he’d go out and buy the best OL he could find and start building the foundation. That’s what we need to do.

                                                                                                  My concern is that was not a LR issue, and more of an OU issue. OU is 0-7 in NC and playoff games since 2000. Pretty alarming considering there were heisman level QB's many of those games and still lost.


                                                                                                  My belief is that we are down to about 5-10 teams who can win a NC moving forward.

                                                                                                  That list does not include Michigan, Oregon, PSU, Auburn, FSU, Notre Dame, etc... They simply do not have the talent necessary to win one anymore in this new era. It's really just down to the teams who can get 10+ five star players, which OU has never done. Last year there were 30 five star players in the NC game.

                                                                                                  OU is in that group with teams like Florida and USC who may or may not actually be able to get the talent necessary to go win a NC moving forward even though they have previously.


                                                                                                  20+ year ago there were probably at least 30 teams who could win a NC from Nebraska, Miami, Tennessee, Auburn, PSU, Washington, etc.. Now that list is probably less than 10. NIL will only accelerate the talent concentrating in the top few teams.

Even they would tell you the previous coaching staff was confusing to say the least. As for defense, we have players that have been poorly coached that can’t read basic keys. They may have been ranked high in HS but they haven’t developed beyond that.

                                                                                                    As for offense, we have some pieces but our QB couldn’t complete a forward pass yesterday. Is that the coaches fault?

                                                                                                    If we hired Saban tomorrow, the first thing he’d do is cut everyone on defense and buy the best 50 players he could find. Then he’d go out and buy the best OL he could find and start building the foundation. That’s what we need to do.
                                                                                                    Yes it is.

                                                                                                    Look it up for yourself. So yes you are clearly wrong trying to blame talent when the number three roster can't beat the number seventy roster.
