I’m reminded of the guy who fell out of a ten-story building…on the way down someone asked how it was going…he yelled back, so far so good. It is the same story for our Sooners, so far so good.
As we said earlier, the Kansas game was huge…we took care of business and then we said the same about the Iowa State game. Mission has been accomplished on both counts, but we need more. Now, we have some momentum and need to take down Baylor at home and West Virginia on the road. Won’t be easy, but this team can do it.
What has become obvious about the Sooners is that having a healthy Dillon Gabriel makes all the difference in the world. We have also found that the bye week helped us immensely in getting our players back from injury. Finally, we are finding that BV and company can actually coach.
As fans, no one wants to hear this, but it has been fun having to get up for a Kansas and Iowa State. I was much more into these games given the enormity of the outcomes. Granted, I don’t want to make worrying about these teams a habit, but still, it’s been fun.
Take care of Baylor at home and we will get to 6-3 and then we can go to Morgantown with the wind at our backs. Next, we can come back to Norman and open up a can of butt kickin’ revenge on the Aggies. I know I am getting ahead of myself, but then again after what we have been through, we owe it to ourselves to get ahead of ourselves from time to time.
