I feel like it should be 10-2 with a trip to the CCG, but I think another loss coming.  

9-3 heading to a bowl... 10-3 when all is said and done.

We can lose another game to a team other than Baylor, and probably ISU, and still make the CCG.

This right here.  I see OU losing two games!  But I also see us losing two games, so I don't know who is in Arlington. 


Should bet it in Vegas. Would get good odds.

Revised my preseason 10-2 (I thought we'd beat LSU and lose to Okie Lite) to a 9-3. So many injuries in the secondary and Sam looks like he's taken a couple too many hard shots.

I think winning out to the CCG is more likely than 8-4, though. Baylor's a paper tiger and we match up well with ISU.

I think they will lose at least one more and maybe two depending on the breaks.  Interesting to compare this poll with the one from mid-August where 14% predicted 12-0, 20% predicted 11-1, 44% predicted 10-2, and only 21% predicted anything more than two losses.  As shocking as it may seem, a few here may have been a little optimistic about our chances heading into this season.

Time for an update.

Talk to me in two weeks. This shit-show is dynamic, not static. A snapshot tonight wouldn't accurately reflect either the fact that the heaviest lifting for this team is behind them, or the fact that they're just as likely to trip over their own shoestrings with the lighter loads.

I honestly think we come out of the bye week and play well enough to beat KSU at home.  Then do likewise the following week in Ames.  Then we have a trip to Arlington on the line when we visit Baylor in Waco, and I have no fucking idea how that will go.  Probably like the Kansas game.

Then we’ll probably finish our regular season with a win against tech.

You should stop thinking honestly.

I think we go 2-2 in the last 4 games.  This is a bad team (at least defensively) coached by bad coaches.  I knew nothing had changed when Orlando called another zero blitz, not leaving a single safety on 3rd and 14 with the game on the line.  He made the same mistake against LSU which cost us the game and he did so again against TCU.

I feel bad for sam. A once every 10-15 year qb and is going to be completely wasted because of the defense.

The defense didn’t throw 4 picks. Also blame Sam and the offensive coaching

Hope we do because I think it will be worse.

Serious??  I love Sam.  He is tough as nails and has the heart of a lion.  But generational talent?? No way in hell.

Sam knows he needs to score 50. That will certainly lead to throwing some balls he knows he shouldn't. And that 1 pick was on DD.

All but maybe 4 or 5 teams in the country would be an upgrade at qb with sam.

Sam is a "once in a 10-15 year QB" for us primarily because our QB recruiting and development has been so bad for that long.  

Everyone else seems to understand the importance of this position except the Case McCoy Factory we have on the 40 Acres.

its is linked to the perpetual NOline tradition however, which makes even serviceable QBs look horribad.

Well there's your argument right there... Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray both knew they needed to score 50 -- and they did.  THAT is generational talent.  Again, not a knock on Sam -- he's a very good QB, but Colt, Vince, THOSE are once-every-15-years QBs.

And speaking of blowU, I've heard the knocks on Lincoln Riley and the fact that he has had this string of QBs land in his lap and we still don't know what he's capable of coaching-wise.  Well, I've seen Spencer Rattler play, and he's good.  REAL good.  I fear another QB prodigy for them.

We are underdogs in all the remaining games : KSU has a real coach and enough video to beat us , ISU as well and Ames is tough for us for whatever’s reason, Baylor is no slouch particularly on D, and anyone can have their way on offense so that’s a loss as well.

Tech at home is our best shot, but they have a legit coach too and despite some poor talent, they beat Baylor at Baylor but the refs didn’t want that to happen. It wouldn’t be shocking to see Tech beat us. 

No adjustments and regression makes 6-6 or 5-7 the future.

There’s not a single game that won’t be a challenge left. Even Kansas will make it close. The entire team is injured. Can’t tackle. Young and the staff is fucked. We will drop at least 1 more

If I'm honest, I think we'll split the Iowa St and Baylor games and win the rest.  9-3 with a chance to win a bowl for another 10-win season.  And there's a chance that 6-2 still gets us into the CCG.

Ahhhhhahahahaha.  What an idiot!

People need to quit thinking Sam is anything other than a great high school quarterback in the Austin area. Never been a coach a day in my life but the kid has given away more big games than he has ever won.  This Sam fascination is deadly -

KSU is going to be a big game, if we pull the upset we might just go 3-1 down the stretch.   Lose that one and the wheels have officially come off and 0-4 is most likely.

Their run game looked very similar to OUs.  I suspect the results will be similar too.

4 olineman for OU drafted in the top 4 rounds last year, never been done before, might have helped Mayfield and Murray a little bit.

9-3.  Same as I predicted at the beginning of the season.  

I want to revise my vote to 7-5.  We lose to Baylor, but amazingly squeak by Tech.  We then go to some shit bowl and you can all go fuck yourselves.

Optimism 

i dunno, I'm sticking buy it.  As much as we are in the shitter right now, I can't see us losing to Texas Tech (insert jokes here).  I see us closing out a 7-5 and still getting the Texas Bowl bid.  At 6-6, we get LIberty Bowl bid.  For post being 3 weeks old, I'm still not that far off.

9-3. That was my preseason prediction. As bad as Texas was, they are still pretty clearly superior to everyone else on the schedule.

I think ISU and Baylor are both wins, but there will be an inexplicable loss in there to Tech, who has been looking scrappier lately and will want to play spoiler, or KSU, who is well equipped to exploit Texas's defensive weaknesses and make them pay for the handful of critical dumbass bonehead mistakes/coaching decisions they make every game.

Still get to Arlington. Can't see how that's a win right now. OU is a better team.
