There's a reason their the most delusional fans in the world. Of course, if they go 6-6, they'll expect to go to a BCS bowl. They think that's their god given right or something. I think 6-6 is what ND will go this year, 7 then they'll lose their umpteenth straight bowl game b/c it will be a game in which they of course don't belong.

Even w/ 0 degree weather, if it's dry, you can layer yourself and still be somewhat warm, but w/ that weather, nothing worked, it just completely chilled your bones. It was also windy too.
You are telling a Duck fan that cold, rainy weather affected throwing the ball. Please, I have been to numerous Duck games in Oregon, you know, where it rains (even snows too) all the time, and Akili Smith, Kellen Clemens, Joey Harrington, Dennis Dixon never had much problem throwing the ball.

Plod along there OSU fan. You do have a golden opportunity to get some respect from the Pac if you can knock off SC. Until then, keep those excuses coming.

My gosh, I hate OU, but 20 points? Sir, put down the crazy sauce and step away from the computer.

Will we get respect then? Or, will everyone make excuses, like USC didn't play their best, or they made too many mistakes like they did when Stanford beat them (our QB was hurt blah blah blah). The way the media piles on OSU, I don't even know if a close win will gain a lot of respect from the media. BTW, no excuses will be made by me, IF we lose that game. But, I have a lot of confidence this year in a team returnig 20 starters from an 11-2 team. No other team is returning that much talent. But b/c we lost to a better, more experienced team on practically their home field, in a game that I didn't even expect to make, the media and the rest of the country can't stand us. Oh well, it is what it is, and discussions like this is what makes college football so great, along w/ of course all the traditions and rivalries.

IF it is OSU v. Choklahoma for BCS title; I may not watch. What a crummy game that would be. I sure hope USC or someone in the Big XII steps up and spares us all the horror!

As an OU fan, I do have to admit they've choked the last two years. I'm hoping they'll turn THAT tradition around this year.

Who in the Big XII should "step up"? Oh you mean beat OU in the regular season. They all have their chance every year.

No BCS team without 8 of their defensive STARTERS (as OU had) would have beat that WV team, not one.

And Boise State, well OU didn't exactly choke. Should they have won, you could argue so, Boise State played a great game. Losing by one point in a BCS game isnt exactly choking.

Keep hating..... I love it!!!

It is when you are Oklahoma playing Boise State....

Furthermore, OU has lost four BCS games in a row. Their only bowl win the past 5 seasons, the Holiday Bowl vs. Oregon. It is painful watching this team try to play in major bowl games as of late (2005 Orange Bowl anyone?).
