the lions are really bad, in Norman i would say if Oklahoma won the turnover battle they would win. when things start going bad, the lions cave. the momentum factor would be HUGE for the Sooners playing at home. once they scored, the lions just might quit.

Pro teams no matter how good or bad they are would take college teams to the wood shed and whip them good.

how bad would they spank them though? like 21-7 Lions? that sooner offense broke all kinds of records and the lions have one of the worst defenses ever. i bet the sooners would score at least 21 on them. it's that detroit offense that would probably get the better of the sooner D with Calvin Johnson, Kevin Smith, and company. i think it would be a high scoring affair with the Sooners possibly winning (since they're at home and the lions are quitters) like 31-30.

It really wouldn't matter if they were in Norman or Spain OU would get that behind shot off. Again, OU's perfect game against Detroit would be a 35-3 loss with no turnovers and 2 first downs for the entire game. OU's D line would constantly get blown up and Detroit's O Lines would open holes big enough to land helicopters in. I forgot to mention this last time but College kickers aren't all that when kicking a 38-45 yard field goal whereas NFL kickers are almost automatic within the 50 yard range (morelike 45-48).

maybe sooner fans should worry about beating Florida first before fantasizing about even playing a pro team.

Who do you think would win, OU is scoring major points right now, I think it would be close and OU could pull out a win, possibly over a few NFL teams.
You're joking right? You're talking about men vs. boys here. The level of play in the NFL and college is night and day. Think about it. The NFL takes the best players out of college through NFL combines, tests, scouting reports, etc. You seriously think OU can pull it off...never!!

If the entire Oklahoma football team tried out for the Lions, I doubt many would make the roster.

Comparing NFL to collegiate football is comparing apples to oranges.

Im not joking, lets take the NBA for example, you have a few kids who arent even old enough to buy cigarettes get signed to a NBA team and come in and become some of the best players in the game(Bryant,Garnett,&James), I know there is a big difference in the NCAA and NFL but Im sure OU could pull out a win on a good day.

The players on the Lions roster were good enough to make a NFL team but obviously not good enough to win against a NFL team so far.

and anyways it would be just fun to watch the 2 levels of football compete.

Even though the Sooners are very dominant right now with Bradford; Iglesias and company I highly doubt that Oklahoma would win. It would be a wonderful event to watch especially if it was to be at Oklahoma in front of their notorious crowd.

But really it takes a lot factors to be able to beat a NFL team such as experience, strength, etc. Yes, the Lions are very weak and OU is very strong but still a NFL team could beat a NCAA team anyday.

I would very much enjoy seeing the Longhorns play the Sooners than the Lions take on the Sooners.

Name me one player who came out of the NBA straight out of high school and made an immediate impact. I am not talking played in the conference finals deep into his career like Garnett or spent a few years growing into a star like Kobe. I am not even talking about T-Mac, who didn't even make an impact until his third year in the NBA. Name one, just one, who was an immediate impact player in the NBA right out of high school. LeBron probably comes the closest; but I think it is universally accepted that he is a special talent. It would take several LeBrons and Kobes to build a college team that would not get crushed by the worst pro team.
