I don't know about Mississippi, but it could be argued that Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and to a lesser extent Louisiana have much more in common with one another culturally than states further into the Southeast. The Census actually has TX/AR/LA/OK in the "West South Central."

A moot point given the topic of the thread, but I thought I would mention it in passing.

Texas defense was actually ranked 12th in college football and only 7 yards on average from finishing in the top 9. That's not average by any means. Texas had to go up against better offenses and future NFL quarterbacks. Neither one of Alabama or LSU's qbs will start in the NFL as QB's much less play in the league.

Never happened. OU beat Texas 55-17. OSU beat Texas 38-26.

Because that one team won their conference while the other team did not.

You are correct, that was OU that beat Texas 55-17. My bad.

I guess that score just stung so much it is now ingrained in my mind...

Tell me about it. Next season should be far more competitive.

The conference could not have been that good if its best team lost to a team that was unranked.

Still blowouts are rare in rivalries. I expect Texas to be far more competitive than last October and I'm not a big fan of Landry. I mean he's better than the Texas QB's obviously. But I think his decision making skills at times are terrible and he's starting to hold onto the ball longer than he should.

Yeh, I don't think it will spark any fear in the Horns to know that Landry is back. (I DO think that the Horns should be concerned if D-Whaley is back at RB and healthy with an experienced offensive line.) Landry won't really win or lose the game for the Sooners....OU's success next year will come down to how well it plays defense. Just having his experience vs. inexperience I believe is always a huge plus.

The injuries OU sustained were not something that could be overcome. Landry is a decent QB who looks really good when his skill players (Broyles/Reynolds/Reynolds) are all healthy. But when he doesn't have the high-end skill position guys around him he becomes very average. He is a system QB, no doubt. However, when the pieces (players) are in place, the system looks stout and Landry runs it very well.
