Anyone have a gut feeling about the game?


Recommended Posts

I am the first to say that I don't think we'll win this Saturday.

 

But my "gut feeling" is we're going to win. I don't know why. I keep thinking about this special season. Stanford beat USC and my head said we were going to lose to them as well. Last night I rewatched the Stanford game and we punched them in the mouth. We outphysicalled them. Golson played outside himself at times.

 

I have no idea why but I think we take this Saturday! I don't see Oklahoma as a "tough" team. I see them as a very good finesse team relying on execution of finesse offense and "speed" on a smaller defense. We have become a power smash mouth football team and my gut says they can't handle dog fight.

 

My head says we're losing but every time I think about it, I get this feeling that we are going to beat the ever living shit out of them and wear their OL and D down by the 4th. I don't remember feeling this way about an important game before. Very strange. Anyone else?

I'm not really expecting a win or loss, either way I'm really proud of this team regardless. I know they are hungry and are going to be looking to make a statement with this game. Normally I'm really nervous for these big games, but not so much for this mainly because even if this team doesn't win I know they'll never stop fighting 4 quarters.

My guts been saying Win since BYU ended. Thats why I got some film up quick to see if it was possible. The name that pops back in my head is Manti Te'o. I know he's just one young man, but I see Prince Shembo in my head getting to Landry Jones, and then TJ jones catching one for his dad.

 

I Might be delusional but I am enjoying it.

I'm with you on this one Speedster. We can control the line of scrimmage on both sides. I think we can run on them. I really like that Golson will be at the helm. It basically gives us another blockier. Kansas State did it. We can do it. Riddick looked like a man possessed last week. We can take it to them. They are fancy. They are fast. Let's get after them and shock the world. I have been waiting for the offense to ignite. We can do this.

My gut says ND wins.

This team really WANTS to win and we just haven't seen that in years.

 

I think OU will move the ball unless we can cover the middle. BYU had success w/ that shovel pass and OU can dink and dunk and then wham! -- test our freshman cb's.

Our offense doesn't concern me. We have a bigger OL and we'll get the push. If ND can get to the 3rd Q up by 7, they win.

 

But my gut is simply content these days knowing that they'll fight as hard as they can for 4 quarters. My gut says they're going to push OU around.

 

BTW, Kelly is a f%^kin' BRAWLER. On the recruiting trail, on the sidelines -- he wants to put his foot up Stoops' arse.

My gut feeling is akin to indigestion. It tells me that we can win this game but we have to limit mental mistakes and take care of the ball which we haven't done consistently, at least on offense and special teams. It's not that I think OK is that good but we aren't without our warts. Despite a couple of miscues, I saw signs of progress in Golson before he was knocked out of the Stanford game and that gives me some hope.

 

If BK has this team 100% focused and Golson's break from action hasn't resulted in some rust forming, I think we pull this out.

The team's reaction after the BYU game changed my opinion on this game. They weren't satisfied with the quality of the win against BYU, they are hungry and I believe they will come out against OK pissed off. I don't know if OK will be able to match our intensity in this game. I think it will be close but our guys will prevail.

My gut says we win.

 

Defense plays strong, Offense does enough to win.

 

The difference maker? Golson in the spread option. Simply the threat of a running QB keeps the LBs/Ss at home, opening up the jet sweep and riddick up the middle.
