    Moving on.
    The past is past.
    Nothing to be done about it.

    Better stay in our lanes or Sanders will exploit it.
    Haven't really paid attention to the okie agroids.
    Do they have a running game without Chubba?
    How is

    They have a really stout defense.
    Even if we had won on Saturday, this game was concerning. Now it's alarming, they are undefeated & big 12 wants to protect their investment for a team to CFP, so get ready for some more BS calls etc.

    So, you are saying that the Big 12 tells the officials for a game to blow certain calls to cause a certain outcome, and the refs actually all go along with that?

    Intersting.

    Please explain the Texas/OSU 2015 game. That was beyond bizarre

    Incompetence. Maybe they all had money on OSU. I guess they are wiling to put their jobs on the line for that.

    Explain all the favorable calls Texas does get through the decades. It goes both ways.

    Texas will likely lose to OSU because they are better. Hopefully Texas wins, but if they don't it won't be because of the refs and a vendetta against Texas leaving the Big 12.

    Why would they protect OU Saturday when they are leaving, too?

    Please don't take this the wrong way. I am not saying you are an aggie, I am saying blaming games on refs is aggie-like.

    Because they are undefeated?!?!? They have to pick sides. It's all about $$$ , same reason we are going to the SEC in the first place. From a competitive standpoint why would join a league with Alabama/ Georgia's

    Wow??? About the reason we are joining the SEC???
    I don't understand why OU is joining a conference where they won't be in the driver's seat any longer.

    No. Wow to your theories on refs causing Texas's woes last Saturday and, seemingly, through history.

    Let's hope not.
    Glad we have them here at home.
    That gives us a little edge.
    We can win this.

    It's not the only reason for the woes, but it was substantial enough. I was in Ft Worth the week before and the refs were to blame for a game where should have won by more, but we weren't executing in red zone. I get your point, but we better get used to not having any calls in our favor or at the very least not even. What to do about it? Just control what you can. F zeroU and hope they get wiped out with their freshman QB because at some point he will play like a freshman, those moon shot passes or "50/50" balls won't fall into their WRs hands. Which he had time to throw because their OL ARE F'N HOLDING.

    From what I've read, defense is their strength. Offense is ours. Which means our offense won't perform as well as usual, and their offense will look like the 1993 Dallas Cowboys. Playing at home helps us. Having a week off helps them. The pessimist in me sees disaster. The optimist in me thinks losing last week will piss our guys off.
    In other words, who the eff knows?

    I have predicted a 10 point win. Our offense seems to play out of its mind at home. I’m not predicting it, but if our defense try’s to show up this could be a blow out. We are favored in Vegas. We may have the best offense in school history simultaneously with the worst defense. Maybe we clean some things up on defense to make it serviceable (which I think it can be against the rest of Big 12 comp). Don’t think we’ll be outcoached in this matchup as has been tradition. I wouldn’t mind a 50 burger. Hook’em

    What does that prove? That the refs was glad that Sweed caught a TD in 2005!?!?

    The (former) Mullet weighs in:

    "I'd prefer to not get in a shootout with them. They've done some of that with big plays. They accomplished some of that Saturday with big plays. We all know that in this league, defensively, one of the most important things that we can accomplish is minimize the big plays. And I would prefer not to get in a shootout with them."

    Gundy Previews Matchup with No. 25 Texas - Oklahoma State University Athletics

    OSU may show some bend-but-don't-break D, although I bet he sends plenty of pressure, especially on the outside. Also, Gundy mentioned his concerns about containing Casey and not letting Casey beat them on the scramble. Wise man. While he takes a lot of ribbing, as we know this is a very crafty coach who gets a lot out of his players and is a very strong, if not a master, tactician. The home field advantage is big this week. Like the old Dallas Cowboys under Tom Landry, this year's Oklahoma State Cowboys seem to play up, or down, to their level of competition, and come away with a lot of close victories.

    What makes you think osu is better, HIC.
    I do not think they will play ou as close as we did and have every chance to win. I say this only as I assume you say what you say because you are p'd we lost to ou. The loss doesn't say weare a bad team...and no reason to put us behind ANY other big12 team...all are flawed. .all.

    What I was saying was that IF OSU wins this Saturday, it would be because they are likely the better team. I did a poor job of writing the comment you quoted. I don't think the refs will be trying to get OSU to win Saturday through purposeful questionable calls or non-calls.

    Sorry, that is what I was trying to say. I have no clue sitting here right now whether Texas or OSU is the better team.

    As to their "Bedlam", lol, what a joke, just check out that series history, game, yeah likely the 40 year old man will lose AGAIN to OU. I think he has won 1 or 2 of those in his tenure.

    Like a referee could have stopped the *** whipping we gave Colorado that day.

    Typical worthless gomer - you disappear all season long until your maroon morons pulled a good game out of their asses, and like clockwork, here you come to infest our board.

    Keeping in mind his two wins in Bedlam make him the second winningest coach in OSU history against OU. He has however made the series competitive with a bunch of games that were decided by one play.

    That series in general, from the end of the War until 1994, OU went 46-3-1, (the 1993 game OSU did not get a first down). Of the 46, only three were decided by single digits. Since 1995, OSU has won seven and lost seven by one score. So now there is a generation of OSU people who believe that they can compete with OU, because for the last 25 years, they have been in dog fights with OU half the time with vastly inferior teams.

    So they got that going for them lol.

    Bedlam. Such a ridiculous name for such a one sided rivalry. I think they play Texas harder than they do OU.

    That's a great find. Doesn't overturn the sideline call from the Shootout, tho.

    Really worried because of the new OL,
    Even though something had to be done
    after the OU performance.
