    Good game on tomorrow, looking forward to it. I am interested in watching this Bradford kid, I haven't seen him play but have heard a lot of good things about him. Should be fun.

    Intersted in watching Bradford? How about being interested in watching Arakpo and Lamaar Houston smother his ass!!!!

    13 hours until the official kickoff and it's game time. Time to GIVE EM HELL!!!!

    I haven't seen him play so I want to see how good he really is. I'll be pulling for the Longhorns because in College I pull for all Texas teams especially when they play teams from Oklahoma.:kingkong:

    T-minus 30 minutes!!

    I can't wait...should be a good game. Everyone knows OU has a good team this year w/ a great QB at the helm. Some don't realize how well TX has been playing. McCoy has played lights out so far and I love the way Wil Muschamp has a very young defense playing. It's anybody's game, but IMO, if anyone thinks OU is just going to run away w/ this one, they haven't really watched McCoy or the TX defense play under Muschamp.

    The TX defensive line has been able to apply heavy pressure on all the opposing team so far...that will be a key. Can TX front four w/ Roy Miller & Orakpo still get to Bradford w/ OU's good Oline? Another key matchup IMO is the experienced WRs of OU against the two starting freshman safeties of TX. I've been very impressed w/ the way the two freshman have played so far, but they haven't faced a pass offense like this yet. Should be a good one!

    HOOK 'EM Horns!!

    OU is better at the skill positions (all of them in fact WR, TE, RB) so I'm giving them the edge.......Texas really doesn't even have a "go to/top" RB and that's going to hurt them. Their WRs while very solid aren't the NFL caliber WRs that Bradford is going to throwing to today either......it amazes me how Stoops always rolls in with this kinda talent (and I bet they're all from Texas too)....makes me sick.

    7-3 OU at the end of the 1st.

    OU is getting a lot of pressure on McCoy. No running game so far either.

    Texas isn't getting much pressure on Bradford at all, but the secondary has the WR's locked down. Bradford has been forced to tuck it and run about 5 times already.

    I think Sooners will win unless UT defense can make some big plays...

    As soon as I type this the 2nd quarter begins and OU goes straight down the field for another TD.

    14-3

    Well it finally happened.

    One of UT's freshman safeties busted a coverage & gave up a 52 yd TD to Gresham.

    It only took 24 minutes for McCoy to get positive yards on a running play.

    The Horns lack of running game is hurting them but McCoy is still finding his guys in the passing game.

    21-17 OU.

    Orakpo had that one sack, but I have seen him take ALOT of plays off.

    Not just a few, ALOT.

    Kindle with the pressure on Bradford & Earl Thomas redeems himself with the INT.

    Cosby is a very good WR.

    His draft stock is hurt by the fact that he is 26 years old.

    I'm not sure what you're seeing, but I don't see that.

    I underestimated Loadholt. He is doing a pretty good job on Orakpo. I've only seen Orakpo in the backfield 4 or 5 times so far.
