    Baylor & Texas

    I saw some college football analysts mentioning Baylor and Texas talent level as a big threat for OU . I firmly believe Brent will have us win a natty soon ,and we need to be patient as he is building the defense and fixing a lot of things.
    The game against Texas can be a toss up any given year . But do we see a situation where we lose to Baylor in Norman this coming season ? How does our talent compare to theirs? I

    I consider both games huge. Difficult. A toss up. How many days until the UTEP game?

        Just glad Baylor is at home this year. We have a pretty favorable home schedule this year in conference. ISU is the one road game you might ordinarily worry about but they lost a lot of people.

          I don't think Baylor will be so much of an issue now. I have a feeling this teams mindset now doesn't allow them to play down to the level of the competitions.
          And Fuck Texas

              can't discount baylor until they're out - but right now Aranda is developing players - they had quite a few drafted, and they just wont a Big 12 championship.....there's something about that awful town that is drawing athletes - both football and basketball

              texas is mostly irrelevant aside from the name and all the $$$$

                  Nebraska may be a challenge early on as well. Scott Frost's career may hinge on that game. Plus the it in lincoln .

                    Baylor barely won despite OU's head coach throwing the game. Aranda is now Venables bitch.

                      But on a serious note, yes, we do have a situation where we could lose to Baylor at home this year. Aranda has proved to be very good. And Texas's talent level is always a threat. In most years, Texas has played down to the level of Texas, regaerdless talent--as in top 5 recruiting class followed by no draft picks. But a dormant volcano can erumpt.

                        texas has talent but they’re not a good football team.
                        baylor has less talent but is a very good, well coached football team.

                        OU has more talent and is a better team than everyone on our schedule.

                          If Baylor has any semblance of their defense from this past year, and Aranda can make good as he’s known to, they’ll beat OU and the rest of the soft 12. And make it hurt.

                            Anyone can be beat on any given day, period. Just ask Texas about KU, they have to travel to Kansas this year. There is always the chance OU could lose 4-5 games this season, and there's the chance they could go undefeated as well. We'll see. There are going to be several good games this season and not just OU games, BU/UT, KSU/UT, BU/ISU, WVU/KSU, UT/fOSU,fOSU/BU. We'll see.

                                  Scheme wise Aranda showed at the LSU game how to stop Riley's offense and he continued with it as head coach at Baylor, he also showed you could out physical Riley's team, other coaches saw what he was having success with and were copying it. Things have changed we have a new offensive coordinator and new training staff and a new mental mindset from top to bottom.

                                  I was hoping Aranda would get the Oregon job, Muleshoe would have crapped his pants to have had him follow him to the PAC.

                                    Baylor lost quite a bit off its really good 2021 team. I think we’ll win that game in Norman. The other big factor in that game was that Baylor’s front absolutely manhandled our weak and poorly conditioned OL. We may not have NFL talent in the 2022 OL, but we should be a lot stronger.

                                      I don’t think Lebby will have the issues with aranda that Riley had. Also BVs defense won’t be a massive liability against whatever unknown hero QB Baylor decides to throw out there this year.

                                        Shh... That hero QB is considering OU as a transfer destination.

                                          I'm not buying into the narrative that texas has talent until they start winning or getting guys drafted. Sorry.

                                            If I'm being honest, texass and Baylor should be more worried about us than the opposite. LiaR, almost losing to Tulane, Nebraska, Kansas, and actually losing to OK lite, K state and Iowa St has us all shook and worried about games. There used to be a certain fear about playing OU, especially on their home field. That fear started to wane under Stoops and tbow lost it altogether. No team feared or respected OU as evidenced by it being a given to go for it (and usually convert) on 4th and forever on your own side of the field.

                                            I think Brent changes that mindset and soft culture both with the team and fans. Couple that with blue-collar players with chips on their shoulders and something to prove to NIL millionaires and we should expect blowouts against the Tulanes and Kansases of the world and goddamn respect from the others at the very least.

                                                agree. if we improve on defense the baylor game should not be an issue. Aranda has given lincoln offense fits ( LSU debacle, then the loss to Baylor ) I don't think Lincoln has any answers to Aranda's defense .
                                                I trust Lebby's offense will be more efficient. The baylor game may well be for the Big12 championship.

                                                      This is a bit of hyperbole but if we go 9-3 next year but we bring heat every play, I’ll be happy.

                                                      We were dead fish in Waco last year. I bet Riley enjoyed it. Probably still does.

                                                              Can Baylor contend in 2022?

                                                              Ian Boyd

                                                              Baylor will be good at running the football and playing defense in 2022, bank on that. Will that be enough to win the Big 12 again? Probably not, but it’s a strong starting point and they’ll have additional upside which could make the difference.

                                                              They lose essentially all of their playmakers at the skill positions. Leading blitzes Terrel Bernard and Jalen Pitre are gone, star outside receiver Tyquan Thornton is gone, and Abram Smith who ran for 1,600 yards and embodied their physical identity is moving on as well.

                                                              I think this will come down to quarterback developments and decisions, the emergence of a game-changing receiver, and then finding another star blitzer from somewhere in the defensive backfield. If Aranda can check off all those boxes, he’ll have a very good chance at getting the Bears back to the Big 12 title game.

                                                                Texas will have many fresh faces in the program next season.

                                                                Over 30 recruits and transfers will make up an exciting group of newcomers joining Texas’ roster.

                                                                Steve Sarkisian has a good amount of talent to work with between the newcomers on the team and the young players who have been held over from last season.

                                                                Despite the 5-7 record, many around the program feel they are knocking on the door for a massive improvement. Texas proved they could compete with any team in the conference last season but struggled to find ways to win in the second half of games.

In their first five or six games OU is the only team with even a pulse. They have Wisky and Minnesota at home. They have to go to Michigan and Iowa.

                                                                              None of their other QBs have played much. Casey has basically a full year as a starter under his belt. He is going to be a better passer and less mistake prone than Martinez was. And although Casey isn't near as dangerous as a runner, he is still pretty a pretty good runner. I think he is an upgrade.

                                                                              It will be interesting to see if Martinez does better in a different offense at K-State. At Nebraska he was very dangerous for both teams.

                                                                                And Fuck Texas

                                                                                Baylor's coach is good... damn good. I'm shocked that a super power didn't hire him away last year. As long as he's at Baylor they are a legit threat.

                                                                                Consider that for the first time in program history, they had 6 players drafted by the NFL. That's never happend to them before, not even under Art Briles.

                                                                                When their HC Is hired away by a big time program, then we can relax. But until then, they are a huge threat.
