    CBS Sports Preseason Bowl Predictions

    Yeah, I know.....Offseason sucks. Only about 20 more days.

    https://www.cbssports.com/college-fo...-of-the-games/

    Sugar Bowl: 1. Bama v. 4. FSU

    Rose Bowl: 2. tOSU v. USC

    Peach: Florida v. USF

    Fiesta: Wisconsin v. Washington

    Orange: Clemson v PSU

    Cotton: Ok State v LSU

    Alamo: OU v. Stanford

    Again, my reason for posting ridiculous, too early, predictions is not because of the predications themselves but rather I'm surprised about how confident the national media is concerning Ok. State.

    There's no way in hell there'll be a Bama/Florida state rematch. Also I'm not on the Okie State hype at all. See 4 losses for them. And lol at OU in the Alamo bowl. No way.

    It moved up in the rotation to I think the 2nd pick. If that's true, the 2nd place team could realistically have 1 loss and go to the Alamo.

    Would we? If the Big 12 misses the CFP and OU didn't win the conference that is exactly where we would end up. We would only have to lose 2 games in that scenario.

    They are over-indexing the Ohio State game at the same time ignoring what OSU has to do to win the conference. OSU could absolutely beat OU in Stillwater for OU's 2nd loss. But chances are high OU would get revenge a few weeks later in Dallas and thus be conference champ.

    Why do you think they'd lose in the CGG? Neutral field?

    Neutral field plus revenge factor. Bad place to be if you are OSU........

    I think this is going to be an interesting year. Very interested in OU, OSU and Texas. Texas doesn't have to be good to screw up someone's season as you well know.

    I don't understand the osu hype. Their OL isn't great. Their defense is trash. Their QB disappears in big games.

    Every year there are 1-2 teams that are ranked way too high to start the season and then fall off the map. This year, that's osu.

    I wouldn't quite say that but Oklahoma State is not winning the Big 12.

    Interesting stat. OSU has had eight seasons where they won at least 10 games since 1980. OSU's record against OU those eight seasons is 1-7. Somehow they have managed to have an even worse winning percentage against the Sooners during the years they are actually a good team.

    I didn't know that stat but I've said in other threads that's why I quit believing in the hype (although I feel I might be getting sucked back in). No matter how good the team is supposed to be, it never materializes into beating OU when it matters.

    Osu will likely have 3 losses and maybe pick up a 4th in their bowl game.

    Someone unexpected (central michigan???)
    OU (2 losses)
    Bowl opponent has a pulse on offense and at least an average defense

    Osu fans....enjoy this while it lasts.

    If they don't have Rudolph and Washington taking the top off, they struggle. OU DBs have been up to the challenge and are reportedly better now. I never underestimate Mike's ability to get into a shootout on the road, but I'm confident in OU at a neutral site.

    More orange hype:

    Oklahoma State confidently seeks Big 12 title

    Even by Oklahoma State's lofty standards, this year's offense should be exceptional.

    They keep saying OSU, will probably have a tough time stopping people defensively , 3 new DB's plus lost linebacker and best D-lineman in years.

    Then they say the offense will be out of this world now the line might be average and "so if they can somehow fix that... but they are really, really good.

    What? That's is like saying a baseball team probably can't pitch very well and they don't hit it very well in spots in the lineup, but they should win the World Series. New year same hype, team on the rise, worlds greatest offense, yadda, yadda, yadda.

    The offensive line returns everyone except left tackle who is being replaced by Cochran an upgrade from CAL. That average Oline paved over 1k rushing for Justice Hill. I don't see this line being average. They won't be as good as OU but they are above average.

    Obviously, you don't remember Marcell Ateman absolutely butt raping Art Briles in Stillwater the year before and was injured last year. Also add a 5 star LSU transfer who is an incredible athlete. Add into it mcclesky, stoner, and lacy... you can put Washington on the bench and be fine. You underestimate the talent level. Totally different from last year. It was raining and Rudolph sucks in the rain. Not saying we beat OU, but big difference between this year and last.

    Unlikely, but they could lose 4 including bowl game. It would mean that those new DB's aren't any good. We've (OU) has had experience with that, this league won't expose your fronts as much, but will certainly expose weakness in the secondary.

    It is recorded as a loss, you except it and move on. You don't change the record and put it on a ring.

    I agree to some extent but if you have a legit offense then you will outscore teams. It doesn't work as well against OU because of the talent discrepancy but let's be honest that most big 12 defenses suck ass. In a shoot out, OSU beats Texas 8 times out of 10. Baylor will be a joke trying to do the I Formation. OSU could lose to WVU but I expect their defense to be bad and offense to be good but not great. OSU could lose to Kansas state but its at home and if KSU gets down then it will be tough to mount a come back. OU is a tossup in Stillwater. We probably will lose to OU if they can pound the ground game.

    Either way, I don't see 4 losses but I will eat crow if it happens

    It doesn't matter. Fans and teams can't change the results. We didn't call in death threats like OU fans for the Oregon debacle.

    I don't see it either, but it's in the realm of possibility. Pitt will be the early measuring stick, they lost a lot but still beat Clemson at home last year.

    I was worried about that game but 3 of their players are suspended for our game and it seems less intimidating

    Unless the B-12 turns out to be a lot stronger than I anticipate this fall, I don't see how Oklahoma State stays healthy and loses four games.

    Your school was hurt by those rings in form of credibility, if you care about having any. I was embarrased by those dumb asses, and every school has their share of them.

    Credibility for what? It's not like that one game would have given OSU a chance to make the playoffs or a big 12 title for that matter.

    If you don't know the answer to that, I can't help you. I'm surprised gundy didn't just go ahead and award himself the conference title. Why stop at changing the outcome of just one game.

    Hilarious. FSU if they lose to Bama would have to run the table. Not happening. OSU isn't winning the conference either. Laughable.

    If OU finishes 2nd in the Big 12, we would go to the Alamo Bowl. I don't see OSU beating us twice in one season. IF they do beat us, I hope its in Stillwater. Gundy would choke against us in Dallas for sure and we would win the Conference and go back to the SAME stadium in Dallas (Again) to play in the Cotton Bowl.

    I'm gonna say horse poo on the reason for the start of this thread. All your threads are started because OU is dismissed, and you're looking to stir the pot, ala politics threads. If OU was picked to win the title or get to the championship game, your lips would be sealed. Consado esta consado.

    because when they're actually "good" it means they have a good qb, a good receiver, and a good rb. the rest of the team cancels that out by being complete garbage. similar to tech when they're "good." also they had the benefit of us being 90'ized.

    He's had ONE "big game" that he didn't flourish in. Give the kid a break!! Look at the rest of his big games:

    2014:
    1. 1st career start on the road @ #6 Baylor: 281yds, 2TD, 2Int
    2. 1st Bedlam on the road @ #20 OU: 273yds, 2TD, 1Int
    3. 1st Bowl game. 300yds, 2TD, 1Int

    2015:
    #5 TCU - 352yds, 5TD, 0Int
    #10 Baylor - 430yds, 3TD, 0Int
    #5 Oklahoma - Played 3 snaps with hobled ankle & broke rib

    2016:
    #10 West Virginia - 273yds, 4TD, 0Int
    #7 Oklahoma - he sucked
    #11 Colorado - 314yds, 3TD, 0Int

    You were saying?
