That is what separates great CEOs from just good ones or bad ones.

Did your defense improve? Did your offense improve? Did you get outcoached? Did your recruiting efforts slip?
Wholesale changes? How does one fire stoops and expect anyone to want the job? It isnt going to happen. But at some point, someone needs to look internally at the problems and make philosophy, effort or staff changes to address the issues. Saying we are 10-2 without any issues is hiding your head in the sand.
Today we got a dt commit. He was not plan a,b,c,d or e. Looks solid, but may be a grade risk. We offered a 2 star dt with a offer from Texas state and a history of concussions and injuries. Getting cast offs from a$m and fighting Texas state for recruits when options 1-10 said no shows a significant issue. This isn't even to mention the strike outs on the offensive line and tight end.
We may end strong in recruiting, but again, you have to look beyond the superficial and see how we got there.
Did OU just have a de-commit?
The 'A&M castoff' is the 161st rated player in the country, and we offered him many months ago.

He won't be a 2 star very long. Not just because OU offered, but because him film and size are impressive.
There has been improvement this year, but it is still not where it should be.

Remember Bob has won the Big 12 two out of the last three years and has been to a bowl game EVERY year he's been here.
On to Football. Do you remember the 2000 MNC? Obviously not. Sure we beat the **** out of Texas, KSU and Nebraska but we needed a miracle finish to beat an A&M team that was really no better than that WV team we beat this year. We also barely beat a crappy OSU team at home. That OSU team was NO WHERE near as good as the Pokes team we beat this year.
Grow up and watch a few more years of college football and you might learn something. For starters you'll learn every team no matter how good it is has close games like WV and OSU. It's not a sign of trouble that you have close games but it is a sign of good coaching when you win them. Bob's a good coach and we're lucky to have him. Personally I think he's earned our trust that he'll figure out this DT and OL mess we're in. (not disagreeing with you that it's a mess)
Correction: That game was in Stillwater. But you're right that they weren't very good and they were throwing into the end zone at the end of the game to win it.
