There has been much said about the two remaining Power Five conferences cancelling their season in hopes of spring football. Some might say it was too early to pull the plug, while others think it was the right call bases on scientific evidence. Now you can add Oklahoma to the schools wanting to punt on the season.

Sooners Wire first brought up that the team could want out .According to a report from Mark Blaudschun of Sports Illustrated, the Sooners want out.

 

  • While that was going on on Tuesday, the Big 12 was dealing with a different issue involving Oklahoma, which reportedly is leaning against the sentiment of its brethren who want to continue with the season.
  • Normally this would result in a stalemate.
  • Not so much this time because Texas is leading a charge to continue, with or WITHOUT Oklahoma as part of the conference for football this season.

Every sign out of Austin is that the Texas Longhorns want to move forward with the season. Even if Oklahoma pulls the plug such as is suggested, one should expect the Longhorns to push forward with a season. Much like what we have seen with Big Ten and teams discussing a fall schedule, Oklahoma seems discontent with the decision made by the Big 12 Conference.

With just over three weeks remaining before the start of the 2020 season, it seems like a bad time to be having this discussion. It likely should have been brought up during the Big 12 Conference’s Board of Directors meeting. Should Oklahoma opt out of the season while the Big 12 continues, they would lose out on approximately $42 million in TV revenue.

The conference has stated that they were moving forward with preparing for the upcoming season. There hasn’t been an announcement yet that the season would go on as planned as of yet. It will be interesting to see how Texas handles the situation moving forward.

None of us know if the remaining conferences can pull this off.  What history and neutral appraisers of university quality and competence tells us is this:  THE University of Texas is capable of doing this, if it can be done at all.  UT is professional, competent, vigilant, tone-aware, cutting edge and takes the long view.  None of those things can be said without smirking of OU.  Not one of those things.  OU is opportunistic, corner-cutting and, while their recent history doesn't indicate out-and-out rule breaking, it absolutely suggests a laxity of standards of behavior on the part not only of their student athletes, but a desire to cover up said transgressions by the coaching staff, school administration and local law enforcement.  Coupled with their disciplinary issues regarding some key players and a highly questionable returning squad, who is surprised with their reluctance to see this season through?  Lincoln Riley was gifted by Bob Stoops with a humming machine, and he has no idea how to deal with adversity.

Not 100% sure, but starting to smell really opportunistic on Lincoln's part to avoid playing football this Fall.

Riley's current team has personnel deficiencies, and Texas  has a much better 2020 roster with Ehlinger..  There is significant doubt that blOU can win the B12 in 2020.  Crazy how Covid-19 may provide the perfect cover for Blinkin' to weasel out of a terrible season for blOU... if the 2020 season happens, don't be surprised when blOU loses three B12 conference games.

FUCK 2020!!!

You are going to be bewildered when OU wins their 6th consecutive conference title. 

 

Also I would love to make some easy money off of you. Could you be talked into making a $50 wager on your prediction that OU loses 3 conference games?

Meh, OU success was completely predicated on the offense from 2015 to now.  Why 2015? Because That's was Riley's 1st season as OC.  in 2012 they were #12, 2013 they were #53 In 2014 they were #24 and in Riley's first season #7. From 2016 on his offenses have been top 2 every season.  So when he took over in his 3rd year in the program, it was humming because of his offense.  And now he's recruiting better talent than Stoops ever was able to get, and is getting in the ears of the kind of defensive recruits that havent even considered OU since the early 00's.   

 

Everyone is excited to get the season going!  Who wouldn't want to go for 6 straight? Rattler is the real deal.   Should be an awesome season for the big 12 if texas can keep their end of the deal up and make things interesting.

There is an interesting thread on SEC Rant - “OU Cheating” - that immediately morphed into a “the whorns cheat even more” fantasy.

I'd really like to hear the rationale for this fantasy.  Common sense would say that, given the monetary resources of multiple Longhorn alumni billionaires, we wouldn't lose a single recruit ever if were cheating.  Our grads could buy and sell the state of Oklahoma 50X over.

It’s BS.  OU 100% cheated more than Texas.  But why is the SEC calling OU out?  OU today is not even close to what pretty much every SEC team this side of Vandy pulls.

If Lincoln Riley ever even has a *top 25* defense, OU's in the title game...

So, OU under Lincoln will never be in the title game?

Now under 10 active Covid cases for blOU football..

Eight or nine Sooners return after previously testing positive

By   JOEY HELMER.             2 hours ago

Quote

NORMAN, Okla. — A day after some negative news surfaced for Sooner Nation, it’s been replaced by some uplifting news. Eight or nine players previously with active COVID-19 cases have returned to practice, head coach Lincoln Riley announced Tuesday afternoon.

“Well, on a positive front, today was a good day for us. I think we got either eight or nine of those guys back today, which was nice,” Riley said during a Zoom call. “So that was definitely very helpful. It’s been challenging the last week or so with combining the COVID cases, the contacts and then we’ve had a stomach bug that’s kind of been raging through, I think, this whole part of the country a little bit that’s knocked several of our guys out as well.

“So it’s good to get some of those guys back today. So I would say now we’re definitely under 10 active cases.”

Late Monday evening, the OU athletics department announced that six more Sooner football players tested positive for the virus, running the team’s active case count to 17. But subtracting eight or nine from that, and adding it to the recovery count, there are now roughly 25 or 26 of 34 total positive cases that have healed.

“We’ve been fortunate that our guys that have come back, our guys that have been recoveries that were COVID positive have all bounced back pretty quickly,” Riley said. “We haven’t had a player with any lingering effects right now, which has obviously been a positive.”

The data Monday evening came from a pair of tests on Aug. 17 and 20. Five out of 88 came back positive on the first day, while only one of 78 came back positive on the second day. No staff members were tested, but the two who previously tested positive have since recovered.

Student-athletes and staff members from other sports were tested extensively as well. All 15 players and 13 staffers with the men’s basketball program returned negative results. All but one affiliated with the women’s basketball program tested negative, as nine student-athletes and 10 staff members were examined. That one positive was a staffer, and all three players who previously tested positive have since recovered.

An additional total of 424 people were tested from the remaining sports on either Aug. 17 or 21, including 347 student-athletes and 77 staffers. Twelve of those, or 2.8%, came back positive, with all but one a player.

In all, OU performed COVID-19 surveillance testing on 537 individuals. It’s the largest sample size yet, as school has now started back up.

In an interesting piece of news, Riley mentioned the team nearly lost an entire position group due to these recent COVID-19 positive tests. While Riley would not elaborate on what the position group was, he said that it was a group needing multiple players on the field.

"We had a day last week we were getting ready to do a scrimmage and had a COVID test come back and we lose all but one person at a position group, I mean a major position group on the field; and we have to practice that day with a position where we had multiple players on the field at one time and we have one player, and we found out that night and then we’ve got practice the next morning," Riley said. "And so we’re getting kind of some on-the-job training with it. So yeah, I mean, I think for us it’s been a call to every player on our roster that you’ve got to be willing to do whatever’s called."

OU continues preparation for its season opener, set for Sept. 12 against Missouri State. It hosts its first Big 12 Conference game against Kansas State on Sept. 26.

According to the ESPN College Sports Radio Channel, there were plenty of traditional TV slots available for the game on the ESPN and Fox family of networks, but OU chose to screw their fans anyway with PPV.

Looking forward to the media bashing OU for choosing to encourage their fans to increase China Flu risk.  Lots of poor, barefoot, diabetic, and meth-addled Sooners will crowd into their neighbors' trailers so they can split the high cost of just one game.

As good a place as any to ask:

Do we know anything “official” about tickets/attendance limits for the OU Game?

I would call the UT box office. They might have some information about it.  (800) 982-BEVO or (512) 471-3333

Can't find any on SeatGeek or TicketCity
