If you cant win on the road your garbage. PERIOD. Anyone can lose a game, but if you are using the excuse that "had that game been at home we would have won" then that team is garbage. Can I make it any more clear for you?

Oh yeah I totally agree with that, if they use that excuse thats stupid, beyond stupid, thats one excuse which really annoys me.

Mis interperted what you said there for a bit, if you win all your home games (even 75%) and loses a majority of your road games well yeah then you are garbage.

However I do beleive there still is a thing that exsists as 'home advantage'

To me any team who uses the excuse is doing just that making an excuse. Because realistically if you want to become national champion your MORE THAN LIKELY going to have to play at a (NON HOME) nuetral site. SO if you need home field to win, why even show up to the National Championship? SO yeah we are both on the same page as far as that goes.

I think there is a home-field advantage, but it's overblown frequently. I've noticed that the most difficult places to play an away game are the places that have good teams.

Trust me, if OU's line stays healthy, we are for sure going to be better than last year. Our defense should be very stingy.

I'd be scared if I were a texas* fan.

Talking about rebuilding, post VY hasn't been kind for texas*. Can't even muster up a conference title.
Knowing that Texas was a better team than OU last year and that UT could have easily went there in 2006 but had some unfortunate injuries. OU's line isn't about experience anyway. It's about experience which OU simply does not have.

I have given up fighting, maybe, and will let Colt and our guy do the talking AGAIN this year. Can't wait for college football to start.

I'd have to agree that South Florida has been over rated; especially at the beginning of last season.
