Ohio State seems to get bashed on alot but they didn't lose to an unranked team,can't say the same for Florida and USC.Im sick and tired of hearing about how great USC is,they've lost to Stanford and Oregon State over the past two years.

I'm not one to trash talk because Stoops has to step up and prepare our guys for their bowl games (see recent years ), but I can't think of another team (besides that awful burnt orange team from tx) that I hate more.

Boomer Sooner!!!
Although I'm a huge Sooner fan (born and bred) I'll reserve my proclamation of their ultimate greatness until the end of the year and their performance in a bowl game.

Stoops is a great coach, and I'm glad that we have him, but darn it win a friggin bowl game!

I see a few stumbling blocks along the way for the Sooners. They are looking VERY good, but eventually they'll encounter some trouble - someone will figure out a way to slow down that offense and what they do then will be very telling.

Tonight, with TCU coming to Norman (a team that has owned OU lately) could be the first real test. Up to this point has played nobody of any significance.

Go Sooners!

And Synopsis, I love ya, but I have to back my Horned Frogs.

As I said in a previous post, we need this game ALOT more than the Sooners. I say that because: if OU looses just one game, they can still be a possible National Championship contender. But if TCU looses just one game, they can kiss their BCS chances goodbye......

This is a test for the Frogs as well. If TCU pulls it out, I'd say we'll finally get that bid. Then again, we still have to get past BYU and Utah.......

Anyway, here's hoping for a great game (and for me) another TCU upset in Norman.

Go FROGS!!!

JJG, they have the edge as of late, and until the Sooners win one against the Horned Frogs the Frogs will have some sort of a mental edge...

Here's for a great game and no injuries on either team... Less than 90 minutes to go before kickoff!

ohio state gets bashed a lot because they have been slaughtered by SEC in the last two championship games.

yeah, and they usually beat them. however, they don't play the cream of the crop of the SEC. they pick on the middle. I think if USC went to baton rouge on a saturday night, LSU would probably beat them by 40. they aren't used to being in a hostile environment like that.

Couldn't get back to you, I couldn't get to a computer......

It was on FSN Southwest (or FSN Houston, where I am).

I kinda want to forget it...... Yea, it just wouldn't be TCU if they didn't blow the most important game of the season. Oh well, we can still at least win the MWC. And OU will be #1.

A bit of wishful thinking there.
