    Several stepped up in 2018 and come to mind: Sam, LJH, CJ , Dicker, Omenihu, Stearns ... there were others.

    2019: I'm thinking: Sam, Duevernay, Roschon, Jake, Foster, Jamison, Ossai

    I hope every D lineman steps up. We need this sorely to put pressure on Hurts. Also I'm looking for Ossai to lay serious wood on Hurts.

    Yes, Horns need Roach, Ossai, Coburn, Graham and Bimage to get & keep pressure on Hurts.

    The o line. Sam will need a big day to win, he'll need time in the pocket for a big day.

    Would love to see a couple of deeeeep balls early in the game to put the Osoners in deep covg the remainder of the day. Smith and Eagles need to get their shots. Ping, ping, ping to Duv, Epps, Brewer. ... Then, Bang. Bombs away

    Graham is my wild card. Thought he's really stepped it up last 2 weeks. With OU missing their tackles, perfect opportunity for him to make a name for himself.

    OL is key. If we can run the ball effectively, we can control TOP, which keeps OU's offense on the sideline. Long, sustained, TD-producing drives...that's the ticket!!

    And both Johnsons. Ingram. BJ Foster and Estrell going to get some Sooner blood. Ossai and Mitchell will kill Hurts on blitzes.

    Same for Bimage, Sweatt and Roach. They will feast in the 3rd and 4th quarters.

    Hope we get some decent refs for the game... NOT happy flag throwin' PI every other play on the Horns DB's.

    I'm going to step up. I'll be watching and will get overly excited like a teenage girl at an Elvis concert when the Horns do well and irrationally irate and yell and scream like a raging buffoon when they screw up. I can't step up any more than that.

    I am hoping the coaches will let KJ step up. I would like to see him get a minimum of ten carries to get a good idea of what he could do.
    Also I would like the play caller step out. Hopefully there will be a few surprises and maybe a different scheme to throw them off.

    I could be generic and say the whole team needs to step up but I will say the secondary is going to have to make tackles limiting yac.

    Worster,

    mill bet you a Whataburger that shithead Burks sticks us with that Philadelphia HS reject Smith.

    Hope for Mike, he’s our best but his crew sucks, as does every crew in the conference. At least Mike will keep the crap to a minimum

    Same as always. The dirt burglars will hold on every play and it will never be called (unless they are way ahead and the outcome is no longer in doubt then it will be called to even out the stats ).

    Eagles—especially since CJ may draw the safety help.

    Maybe Jamison has been electro-shocked into becoming Aaron Ross.

    Foster & Jamison are on a high so I think they’ll play well. No one talks about Brandon Jones, our “steady eddy.” He could be a difference-maker.

    I like Graham as others have mentioned. Someone needs to wreak havoc. Maybe Foster or Chris Brown...

    2 starting OT's for ou are OUT for the RRR - their backups are young and inexperienced.... Horns DL's are HUNGRY and licking their chops to get at Hurts and the RB's.

    I predict the guys who will step up are Ossai, Roach, Jones, and McCullock on Defense. On offense it will be Duverney, Eagles, Ingram and the whole offensive line.

    We will win two important battles. The line of scrimmage and the turnover battle.

    I don't care who "steps up" as long as they don't "step out of their lanes"

    Disrupt, contain. WRAP UP!

    I am sick and tired of getting beat on plays where we want to "blow em up" and get on the ESPN highlight reel.

    Wrap em up and put their *** on the ground!
