Boomer Loser aka Choklahoma

Saturday Tommy Tuberville was out for blood. The Sooners had kept him and his deserving Auburn Tigers out of the National Championship in 2004. Now the head coach of Texas Tech, Tuberville settled the score with Boomer Sooner by demolishing Stoop’s dream of a National Championship visit this season.

This upset was one of the most unexpected on Saturday night. The Texas Tech Red Raiders beat the Oklahoma Sooners 41-37. The raiders went into this game unranked and the underdog by 28 points.

Fatality was caused by the obviously overrated Sooner defense that gave up 572 yards of total offense to the Red Raiders. The Raiders were allowed to run the ball consecutively, not necessarily successfully, giving them the opportunity to control the ball most of the game. The Sooners ultimately decided their fate in the final three minutes with missed a field goal a failed attempt at an on-side kick.

So this leads to good news and bad news for the OSU cowboys.

Good news: Oklahoma isn’t invincible.  That Oklahoma defense that was ranked ninth week before last was apparently overrated. The 96th ranked defense of Texas Tech held the Sooners to 37 points and caused 2 turnovers. Surely the Cowboys 65th ranked defense can hold them to less than that, and it is certain the Cowboy offense is powerful. If Texas Tech Quarterback, Seth Dodge, can throw for 452 yards Brandon Weeden can double that. So according to this game, and the new BCS rankings, Oklahoma No. 11 is the underdog to OSU No. 3 in the Bedlam game for the first time ever.

Bad news: Oklahoma doesn’t lose well. This game prevented Oklahoma from being one of nine teams to achieve a 40 game win streak at home, that’s almost three whole seasons with out losing at home. They have realized their flaws and will be itching to fix them. With many other teams still undefeated in the Big 12, Oklahoma will want to prove them selves worthy of the BCS automatic bid; with OSU ranked a head their championship hopes have been swiped. Basically with this loss, Oklahoma will be more motivated to win here in Stillwater to prove this loss a fluke.

OSU has currently been placed in the predictions for the National Championship thanks to Tuberville’s revenge in Norman.

About Lindsey Adams

Sports have always been a passion of mine. When I was little it was playing them in kids leagues, until one day I finally realized I sucked. When I got older I went through a phase that I call fan-ization, defined as the process of becoming a well-informed sports fan. I became fan-inized by spending to many Saturday afternoons in the living room with my father. And He, as I see it, is a world renowned sports buff. He knows everything there is to know about all sports-history, rules, players, stats, coaches, and techniques. Obviously a little bit of his passion rubbed of on me and hopefully a little trivia. So incase you didn't know Saturdays in the fall are full of college football so inevitably the NCAA became my first love. I learned players, teams, rules, conferences, and started reading up on news. Now I am a self-proclaimed college football junkie. I have now extended my viewing and knowledge to all sports. Now, my days of spending all afternoon in the living room with my dad have passed because I have had to get up off that couch and go to college. (Theoretically to learn something I guess.) This year I am a sophomore at Oklahoma State University and recently official sports media major. I am originally from Amarillo, Texas and I was born in the Dallas area. So my heart lies with the Dallas cowboys, the Texas Rangers, the (dissolving) Big 12 and the NBA champions the Dallas mavericks, but my fan-ship truly lies with OSU Cowboys. I believe my sports knowledge is unique and being a girl it is odd, you will not find another girl as informed or as passionate about sports as I am.

  1. Another point of irony: Not long before the OU game ended, Michigan State beat Wisconsin on a hail mary pass caught by former QB-turned-WR Keith Nichol, who started his career as a backup quarterback at…yep, Oklahoma. 🙂
