State fans regardless of their orange or crimson persuasion tend to get carried away this time of year. Then again at this point every team in America is undefeated so this is to be expected. The Sooners hope to run the table on the way to a National Championship and OSU hopes to beat OU in November to prevent this from happening.
Mike Gundy has created an offense and a schedule that will grease the skids to help the cause. Gundy sacrificed last season in order to allow four star recruit Spencer Sanders to learn the offense. Combine this guy with wide receiver Tylan Wallace and running back Chuba Hubbard and you have an offense that will light up the scoreboard. I hate OSU, but I really love their offensive scheme.
OSU fans love their pathetic non-conference schedule for a reason. OU insists on playing a couple of competitive non-conference opponents, while OSU insists on starting each season 3-0. For OSU, we have two teams in Oregon State and Tulsa that combined to win a total of five games last year and a third team from the Louisiana high school ranks. Combine this with a soft Big 12 schedule and the Ags should have no less than seven wins as they roll into Bedlam.
If OSU can eke out a win in Stillwater against the Sooners, Mike Gundy will occupy a special place in the hearts of Cowboy fans. He will have beaten OU more times than any other OSU coach. I know this seems shallow, but we are talking OSU here. Cowboy fans consider a win over OU as the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts.
That’s right…OU erects statues to Heisman Trophy winners and OSU erects statues of coaches that can beat OU three times.
Is this a great state or what…
