I got through 27 seconds. What do I win?
An upside down longhorn sticker to put in your window while you cruise Austin. Don't tell any of the Sooners that upside down longhorn can be turned.... upside down. Oh and the money goes to UT.

Okay, lets look at LSU's schedule and plug in OU, who won by 1 at home against Iowa State, barely beat baylor, almost lost to kstate-oh wait, they did lose to kstate.

They did whip up on TT and WVU, 2 teams that are not going bowling, and UCLA and kansas, 2 teams on many bottom 25 lists.

3 years ago beat Auburn in the Sugar Bowl. 5-5 in the last 10. now in 1-4 in the last 5 sucks. Which is actually the same as WVU. Of course OU isn't playing in the mean nothing Bowl game like others. Our last 6 opponents consisted of Clemson x2, Alabama x2, Auburn, UGA. 2-4 in those games

I'm going even going to entertain your hypothetical fantasy of football season as your track record of poor takes speaks for itself. But apparently we can assume Ole Miss would win the Big 12. We all know what an offensive genius Rich Rod is considered!

one thing we do know, when OU won the Big 12 and played RROD's team(minus rrod who was off to mich), WVU ran OU off the field.I dont see that much has changed, and if Ole Miss can get 400 yards rushing on LSU, it's scary to think of what they'd ring up on OU's porous defense. 500? 600? And yeah, my money would be on Ole Miss to beat OU straight up.

When he was at WVU he was pretty good, but the game passed him by

Now there is Nolaeer logic for you. Because Rich Rod's former team beat OU in a bowl game in 2007, he would take a 4-7 Ole Miss team straight up over OU. An Ole Miss team whose best win might be SE Louisiana. I mean you pick between Arkansas, Vandy & New Mexico St

That porous the defense that is #1 in total defense in Big 12?

Yeah I'm sure any knowledgeable football fan would take Ole Miss straight up. Sounds like solid play

Would knowledgeable fans predict kstate to beat OU? maybe. But kstate won with ball control. RROD's Ole Miss offense also uses the ground game to control the ball. Hell, even Army almost beat OU last year using a running attack. Id say Ole Miss has better players than both kstate and Army, on offense at least.

How many points did that supposedly number 1 defense give up to kstate? WVU's porous defense held kstate to 20 points. What was the kstate totla?

Now im not saying, by any stretch WVU is in any way good. they suck this year. but it goes to show that OU isnt all that. theyve beat up(barely) on some weak competition. For that matter WVU's horrible defense held baylor to 17 points, sacked baylor 8 times and had 10 tfl. How many points did OU's number 1 defense hold baylor to?

Trust me OU Titan, you dont want OU in the cfp this year, although the Sugar bowl wont be any fun for you either and I intend to be there cheering for whatever SEC team you happen to draw. Of course that assumes you can beat baylor team. A baylor team who I guarantee would have a losing record in the sec west..

This “logic” is so bad I am not even going to argue against it. At least you did not bring up someone’s great great great 4th cousin who beat ou in 1894 to explain it.

Let me simplify it for you: OU's defense sucks.

When you play a team with equal athletes, like UGA, UF, Bama, or Auburn, they'll shut hurts down and OU wont be able to stop their offense. Wont be a pretty game.

BTW, I dont hate OU. dont like them either. Just call them as I see them.

While I DO HATE OU...I don't over estimate UGA, UF, Auburn and the like as you do...that conference is overrated and it will show come bowl time. LSU is, granted, currently the best team in the country...but top to bottom the Big 12 is more competitive than is the SEC. it will show in the bowls.

Lol...no...just no. 3 teams in that division WVU might even beat (you'd beat Arkie tomorrow by 20 plus, so would Kansas)...and A&M just thinks they are all that...but they had to flee the Big 12 because they sucked here (Oklahoma State beat them 4 of their last 4 meetings). Miss State lost on their home field to KSU whom you just beat and we beat. Ole Miss lost to freaking Cal and Missouri who lost to freaking Wyoming prior to beating pre QB change WVU...sure the top side of that division is very good...but ou would beat most of them as would OSU and Baylor. Might not beat LSU or Bama and would have trouble with others...but it's not cut and dry.
