    With WVU's melt down in Ames, it means Oklahoma is a virtual lock to be in Arlington. They will beat WVU and there is no one else to beat them. Assuming we are there, the odds of beating ou twice in one season seem slim. I've been to too many Title games where the better team didn't win.

    OU could lose to WVU, Tech, and possibly TCU.
    WVU could lose to us or OU. They probably handle TCU at home.
    We could lose to WVU, Tech, or ISU.

    OU, Texas, and WVU appear to be the upper tier of the Big 12 this year, with Tech and apparently ISU not far behind. I think every Big 12 team loses at least one more game before the end of the season, which means the CCG will likely have Texas and either OU or WVU. Depends exactly who beats who and how the tiebreakers shake out.

    I would not be already writing either Oklahoma or Texas in for a sure win in Lubbock just yet.

    If you've learned anything from this conference season so far, I can't believe that "XXXX is a lock to be in the title game" is one of them. And even more to the point, that one of them is us??

    Long way to go yet for this kind of post.

    That's a far more realistic analysis than the one offered in the OP.

    Lets just enjoy the ride the rest of the way. I still think we have one or two more losses in this learning year two. What if we win out and lose to OU or WVU? So?

    I had very low expectation of being in contention for a conference championship this year so I'm not going to prematurely complain about something that could easily not happen.

    I don’t know what’s going to happen but playing OU again doesn’t scare me. Like the first game, they would be favored, and everyone would expect them to win. And like the first game, we will be the more physical team.

    In the TH era at Texas, with the exception of the TCU game last year, every game has been close...including games that shouldn’t have been like USC and OU.

    Maybe OU should be afraid of seeing Texas again.

    The biggest thing Oklahoma should worry about in the loss to Texas is that Texas won the LOS that day, and I don't think that would change in a re-match. In fact, I think this game is one that both teams will learn from, and come in more prepared. I'd probably bet the farm on a much lower scoring game. But I still think Texas would win that rematch even though history favors the team that lost the first game.

    Although Gundy is the most overrated coach in the history of the world, wouldn't be surprised if he still manages to take out one of the remaining big dogs.

    A whole lot of football still to play.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if TCU was in the championship game. OU’s schedule the rest of the way is not a cakewalk.

    This^^.

    After the BU game yesterday, when we were one play away from losing that game, within a hair of allowing a 90 yard drive that would have beat us; when we did not score a single point in the second half against one of the worst defenses in the B12,
    Then yes, its way too early for me to say we're going to be in the B12 title game.

    Any team left on our schedule, except Kansas, could beat us if we don't play well the entire game.

    Our offense is very inconsistent, even with Sam at the helm. Remember KSU? And that is , I think, because: 1) TH does not know how to keep attacking, he goes into an ultra conservative shell too early; 2) we have a very predictable, uncreative run game.

    Yeah, when I posted the "We're back!" thread, I was thinking that THIS is a very good team. Nothing more. THIS coach with THIS team. But if Sam, CoJo, LJH, or Ingram go down, we'll suffer. If one of our better OL goes down, we'll suffer. If Boyd goes down, we'll really suffer.

    Yesterday showed that we are not deep enough, talent-wise, to plug and play across the board due to injuries.

    I think we're deep at Safety. I don't see top tier talent behind any of the other positions yet. I could be wrong.

    We're in need of top tier talent depth at CB, OL, DL in a bad way.

    I wonder how many teams will win pretty when of their best, if not the best, offensive player or players go down to injury.
