The three teams we lost to
were all pretty damn good.
One was co-champion of the Big-12 and played in a BCS bowl.
One played in the BCS Championship game.
One was the only team to beat the eventual champion.
Our losses really weren't that bad in hindsight.

The games we lost, we looked horrible.
In some we barely won, we looked horrible.
Consistently giving up 500, 600 yards plus? We could have played most teams in the top ten and been ran off the field.
In hindsight I'd say we are in big trouble.

Not bashing stinger but this is the mentality stoops has these days. When we lose, he always tries to justify the loss by giving stats and records. Back in the day, you could tell a loss pissed him off to no end. And if you were playing ou after a loss, you knew you were in for an ass beating. Stoops needs to quit being okay with losing to "good" teams.

Just trying to pump a little sunshine. Someone has to. This place is depressing.
Where the **** is Irish?
January 8th, 2013 06:21 AM
Two of the three got blown out in their bowl.
January 8th, 2013 07:26 AM
If the OP is actually Mrs. Stoops. I apologize for breaking into you castle and dropping a ' hot carl' on your chest.
I wouldn't Bob but he was in his Entertainment/Movie room watching a "Muppet Christmas"
Oh and those losses .... Each and every one. We looked like 3 monkeys fuking a football. Save it

OU lost those three games because they cannot defend any QB that has any running ability at all. OU lost those three games because they cannot play against a team that has any kind of defensive ability at all. OU almost lost three games because those three teams either had a QB with running ability....the team played their WR at RB and totally baffled OU...or the team had some defensive ability.
ND....weak schedule and refs made their season
ksu....a pretty one dimensional team when you get down to it...but they play decent defense...except against oregon...and Baylor
aTm is the only team that you could argue was a pretty good team but it only took their qb to beat OU
sorry to bring storm clouds.........actually, i'm not sorry at all
January 8th, 2013 07:49 AM
What about the three teams we almost lost to?
One of them blew out a B1G bottom feeder that was only bowl eligible because they played E. Kentucky. E. Michigan, and Marshall.
One of them lost by a point to the Missouri of the B1G.
One of them got blown out of the stadium by (cough) Syracuse.

The three teams we lost to
Sorry, the 2 teams that beat us in the regular season were just shit on in their bowl games.
January 8th, 2013 07:53 AM
yay are only losses are against good teams... you sound like an ass clown
This is OU we are talkin about, they have no business losing to every good team they play
I rarely expect them to win them all, but to look like shit against every exceptional team they play is not encouraging to me. Is it to you?
January 8th, 2013 07:54 AM
The record looks good, but the product on the field, not so much.
January 8th, 2013 08:08 AM
I'll bash Stinger, you stupid, worthless, no good, ****, freeloading son of a ****, ****ed, big mouth, know-it-all, ****, jerk.
DON'T BE HAPPY TO LOSE TO ANYONE. YOU UNDERSTAND ME YOU SAUDI ARABIAN SHIT FOR BRAINS!
January 8th, 2013 08:14 AM
Its encouraging to me to see that two of the 3 teams we lost to finished in the top 5, the other finished #12, and we finished higher than all the teams we beat. Things could have been worse. I choose to see the glass as being half full rather than half empty.
January 8th, 2013 08:16 AM
January 8th, 2013 08:17 AM
well that's kinda harsh...do you kiss your mother with that mouth?
January 8th, 2013 08:20 AM
count me in the not happy with our losses:
KSU got dey ass whipped against Oregon
ND got day ass whipped against Bama
TA&M whooped dat Sooner ass
KSU got blown out by Baylor
A&M gave up 57 to La Tech, we scored 13
ND should have lost to Purdue, a team OSU throttled...did lose to Stanford IMO (refs hated ND that day apparently, maybe Gordon Riese was in the booth)
ND pushed us around all night on the LOS, just think what Bama would have done to us. Their starters would be on the sidelines watching the 2nd stringers whoop our ass by halftime.
the state of the program needs some serious addressing, I'm not happy with the status quo and can't look at anything half full b/c I think it's more than half empty
January 8th, 2013 08:59 AM
TO be fair, the third one kicked some serious ass in their bowl.
January 8th, 2013 09:11 AM
Question, other than Florida State in 2000 and maybe a Texas game, have we ever won when we w
ere the underdogs? We have lost a crap load when we were favorites.
January 8th, 2013 11:17 AM
let me answer your question with a question
How often are we the underdog? Hmm... not very often in the past decade or so, i would assume on average around once a year.
And when youre the underdog, its for a reason.
Very silly question imo but then again i dont understand why youre asking
January 8th, 2013 11:21 AM
Sorry, not buying it. Beating 10 average to below average teams does not make a successful season.
January 8th, 2013 11:25 AM
Stop saying stuff. Lalalalalalala
OU is the greatest team ever. Always.
Bob Stoops = Phil Fulmer
Also, don't you have some tits to show us? Surely some fire department ****/groupie has texted you pictures you have failed to display on the world-wide-web.
January 8th, 2013 11:27 AM
Say what you want, but not beating KSU and ND may have kept us from having another embarrassing moment in a Championship game....from what I saw last night, Bama would have handed us our collective asses and made the 2004 Championship game look like a close one.
January 8th, 2013 12:04 PM
So you're saying we'll never win another national championship if we can't even beat the teams that get beat by the eventual national champion. Thanks, I feel better.
January 8th, 2013 12:08 PM
I hope one day Oklahoma returns to judging itself by how many elite teams with Heisman candidates they curb stomped during the season.
January 8th, 2013 01:42 PM
Also, I could accept the 3 loss season to great teams if we had fought hard, played well to the end, and maybe just didn't get a break or had an odd break against us. However, in all three games we were manhandled pure and simple.
January 8th, 2013 01:53 PM
I think we were underdogs in the 05 Holiday Bowl against Oregon. Oregon was snubbed by the BCS (BCS #5) and OU (BCS #23) won 17-14. I don't know the line but the Ducks were 10-1 and the Sooners were 7-4 so I have to believe we were dogs. So long ago. Not a great team, but they fought their ass off, I'll give them that.
January 8th, 2013 02:00 PM
The days of crushing Seneca Wallace like players are over. In 2002, we ripped out their heart and soul. That game is played in 2012? Wallace goes for 250 passing, 100 rushing, 4 TDs and is the front runner.
January 8th, 2013 02:10 PM
Let's get this straight.
ONE WAS THE BIG XII CHAMPION.
End of discussion.
January 8th, 2013 02:38 PM
I didn't say anything about our chances of ever winning another national championship.
I'm saying that the losses we suffered, relatively speaking, weren't that bad. For example, the losses to Tech and Baylor last year were much worse.
So, in fact, we improved from 2011 to 2012. When you show improvement on your job, isn't your boss happy?
January 8th, 2013 02:44 PM
It's the LJ argument taken to the team as a whole. It's great stats, but when things go bad, it's how bad they go.
January 8th, 2013 02:48 PM
Hi Bob. Good to see you on LandThieves.
January 8th, 2013 02:51 PM
You don't know shit Stinger! You're just a horny old man!

I know we showed improvement over 2011 using results-based logic, right?

Difference(s) between OU and Bama's expectations:
1 OU is content with losing 3 gms
2 Bama is pissed that they didn't shut out ND.
January 8th, 2013 04:36 PM
We gave up 2500 rushing yards this season...
There is no reason to pump sunshine when your defense allows 192 rushing yards per game.
January 8th, 2013 04:38 PM
Especially in a passing league.

Okay sure. All of our losses were to good teams. I'd be fine with that if all of our wins weren't against bad teams.
January 8th, 2013 05:28 PM
I wouldn't. We still lost 3 games. If the 3 games we lost to were to the teams that finished 1, 2 and 3, I still wouldn't be fine with it.
January 8th, 2013 06:11 PM
This is becoming a trend. Losing to teams that are pretty damn good. OU needs to start WINNING those games again. THAT'S why a lot of us are pissed. Hindsight can go **** itself.
January 8th, 2013 10:18 PM
We looked crappy in all three losses. We are talking about OU, not Texas Tech.

I think he knows that. BTW, Tech didnt win 10 games this year. Horrible comparison.
