Tony Jefferson is heading pro...Defense will be decimated losing its Best player while not having a good Defense to begin with.......The secondary will be wiped out if Aaron Colvin will go pro.....add as well Kenny Still in offense going pro and its team leadership will be wiped out as well. Oklahoma will be in the position Texas was in 2 years ago. The brilliant moves Mack Brown made bringing in SEC coaches Bo Davis and Stacey Searls as Texas as reaped great commitments in both sides of the ball on defensive line and O line this recruiting year and last. Texas will be loaded in the backfield with Malcolm Brown Jonahan Gray ,daje, Burgeon and too much speedsters to list in that position. Add in what Coach Davis and Coach searls are doing with the Texas lines should make Texas BCS bound next year. While David Ash coming off back to back Bowl wins in the Holiday Bowl and Alamo Bowl one can see Ash confidence building up as he will be the top dog QB (veteran) in the big 12. Texas fans can expect Texas to whip Oklahoma next year and get to a well deserving BCS bowl game. Defense ....Defense.....Defense Oklahoma will not have therefore Texas will whip it on the sooners finally after 3 years straight years.
That's more reasons than I could come up with.
What, uh, defense will we be bringing to Dallas?
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
"I don't hate you, I'm just not necessarily excited about your existence."
Reasons they won't...2011 & 2012
I have confidence that Major will have his guys ready. However, I keep picturing Bell slamming the LOS and running free. I have burnt-in images of WR's catching hitch patterns, breaking tackles and running for TD after TD.
Again, hope I'm wrong.
We win it based on experience, leadership, and because we finally won't be little kids scared of them. And finally, because the guys should have enough hate built up to punch'em in the face and take it to'em.
Youth has been a critical factor for the last 2 years... our guys are gonna be the veterans now.
Bob Stoops will have gas from fried VY meats
It's really simple, we only win that game when we're on 3rd base from a talent and development standpoint and they're starting over. All things equal, they win every time accept for '08.
What are you basing this on? Our guys will be heading into this game under the same "leadership" as the last two years. What makes you think Macks and/or Diaz approach has changed?
I think if Mack were capable of changing the mindset for the OU game, we'd have seen it by now.
Were you "comfortably numb" when these thoughts came into your head?
Not true - Harsin is gone, and Major's best quote is... "if they pull their safeties you can slit their throat." Major has no fear in taking it to OU.
That said - Mack has beaten OU 6 times, so it's not like he hasn't ever got it done.
Oh I get it. We lost because Harsin was afraid. Manny was a bad SOB with anger in his heart. His defense was firing all cylinders and knocking the snot out of OU.
I wish I saw that game.
This is such a failed thread. We tell them to stop new Aggy threads and this pops up.
There can be no basis of hope except what gets put on the field in Sept.
Until then, beating OU is a pipe dream.
No, try and keep up... we lost because we were much younger and less experienced than OU. We went up against a rival / veteran team and weren't prepared. There hasn't been enough hate for the last few years... that's due to experience (or lack there of)... next year will not be this year.
Harsin hardly showed any passion for the game anyway. Major is an upgrade from an offensive standpoint. I don't even think it's close either.
Roe is Gonzalez really Gerry Hamilton.
I think major is the wild factor. He will have ash ready and performing at a very high level next year. I only need to see the second half of the bowl to know this. I have no trust in mack. I have plenty in major. Of course, this is all based on mack letting major do his thing. A huge IF IMO
I think Roe is actually a friend of Joe Natural.
I actually laughed out loud and got looks.
I'll be happy if the game is still in doubt at halftime
Who's fault is it that we are a young and inexperienced team and weren't prepared? Mack's been here since 1998. The only fact in this thread is that we have a lot of underclassmen on our roster. Everything else is pure opinion and speculation.
I'd love nothing better than to whip OU by 80 pts, but until we actually show up and compete with them, I won't get my hopes up. Again, doesn't make me a bad fan, but it does make me a realist. Having Diaz on our sideline almost guarantees an OU win this season. I hope I'm wrong.
For some reason I keep seeing comments that we can win next year because, they have lost their defense, they have lost all the good QB's, we will now be older than they are?. Is this a passive way of ignoring that we aren't very good or what? I'm confused with the sunshine pumpers. Do we have to wait untill all the other teams are decimated until we have a chance to win?
