    OU coach gone: official

    apparently its Ralph Rucker who would be left.... https://www.ourlads.com/ncaa-football-depth-charts/player/ralph-rucker/150869

    Official Game Thread: Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State

    Now that is really cool.

    OU coach gone: official

    I'd think that was possible but with how fast this has moved I can't imagine a 'home run secret hire' to be something that was possible. Saban would have had to have either flown in to Norman or had Joe C fly out there. Doubt any deal like stealing him from Bama gets done over a zoom call or...

    OU coach gone: official

    Haven't even seen rumors of Saban. The only rumors out there now are Rhule (to leave the Panthers), Venables, or Dan Lanning from Georgia. I think the best fit would probably be Lanning but who knows.

    CFB Playoff #5 CFP, #5 Coaches, #5 AP

    No the polls used to eyeball test it, just like the committee is doing now it appears. In reality it should be the undefeated team/ conference champions only in the playoff. There is nothing 'deserving' about a team who comes in 2nd place in a conference to get in over an undefeated conference...

    CFB Playoff #5 CFP, #5 Coaches, #5 AP

    Cincy would be 2nd if there wasn't a bias towards the Blue bloods. As they are an undefeated program and only 1 of 2 programs in the FBS that can say that.

    CFB Playoff #5 CFP, #5 Coaches, #5 AP

    Who's to say it is even officially part of the discussion? I think its an inherent bias towards 'blue bloods' because of name recognitio/aka eyeball potential. If you ask any random person who may or may not watch football if they know the coach of Bama or Cincy you would be hard pressed to find...

    I would be absolutely SHOCKED if Saban goes to OU. I don't think Bama would allow that to happen. (Meaning they would bring in all their big boosters to pay him 20MM a year)

    CFB Playoff #5 CFP, #5 Coaches, #5 AP

    I'm not so sure about that. If that was the case Bama wouldn't be top 4 after what i consider a loss to Auburn. 4OT game that required a comeback to even tie at the end. Yeah sorry they should be like 7 right now.

    CFB Playoff #5 CFP, #5 Coaches, #5 AP

    This shouldn't even really be a discussion. As we were told when this whole thing started, conference championships mean something. So Georgia or Bama if they lose should be out. Sorry Georgia you appeared good on paper but if you get beat by a mediocre Bama team then you get to sit this one...

    Dabo isn't going near Norman. He has struggled at Clemson lately. Not sure he is ready for the Gooner pressure.

    How’s everyone feeling about Baylor.

    Hoping their nail biter vs Tech is enough to have gotten them a similar level of energy dump going into championship week. They should have smoked Tech.

    Gundy Presser 11/29/21

    This^^^^ I would think TBP can be similar to some of the 100k stadiums just based on design alone. Having GIA and the more vertical stands/suite area versus lets say the super spread out 'Big House' in Michigan i think would provide for much different acoustics and noise potential.

    Its not a terrible hire but definitely not the 'splash' they would like us all to believe. Honestly the bigger splash would have been stealing Leach from Miss State. At least he is a proven winner as a HC and would light up the scoreboard.

    Kinda surprised the rumors of 'dump truck of money to Saban's door' haven't started up yet.

    Formula 1 (2021)

    I'd be very curious as to what Mercedes did to their car. Somehow LH is looking heads and shoulders faster than everyone and I can't believe that is possibly with just a change in motor a couple races ago. I could see a minor increase in speed possibly but this is drastic. Something fishy is...

    Would OU stoop so low as to steal a smaller school HC who has had a great season? Jeff Traylor buyout is only like 7.5 million.

    OU coach gone: official

    My thoughts are Campbell knows what he has at ISU and that is a Gundy level contract and support. Also Venables may still hold a grudge that he was basically kicked out of OU by nepotism. Guess we will see if those guys would even consider that gig.

    OU coach gone: official

    Its definitely Baylor. OU is going to be a dumpster fire for at LEAST 5-10 years. Even with a new coach he is or has already missed an entire recruiting cycle with so many de-commits. Also it isn't like it will be easier for that new person to recruit as a bottom feeder in the SEC vs a team that...
