We may stand a chance but you won't find me making a prediction of winning.

This could be the first RRS that both sides are like "well we might upset you"............

This is beyond frustrating. At least OU has had some success recently. We haven't since 2009. Now we are a national joke with "Texas is back.......wait........no they ain't"..........we can't have a few guys that develop and work hard. Lets go get some 3 star guys with chips on their shoulders and get after it............

I expect the classic match up of incompetence -vs- ineptitude. It will be like watching midget wrestling. It won’t matter who wins because everyone will know any average team could beat the victor.
I've watched midget wrestling.........that was entertaining........this most likely will not be

I am stunned that the initial betting line was OU -2.

But I'm also shocked that UT isn't better. Part of it is players getting used to new coordinators on both sides of the ball, after no spring practice, very limited summer workouts, and then a very uneven preseason work in August and early September. It's easier to do that if you have some continuity. But OU has lost to ISU and KSU who both got embarrassed in their non-conference game. And we are missing eight or nine playmakers who we expected to be a big part of the deal this season.

I haven't gambled on a game since I was a junior a long time ago, but if I did, I'd be putting a lot of money on Texas this weekend. Texas looks to me like a two touchdown favorite or more. If they need to , Texas will score 35 in the second half this weekend.

Don't underestimate Herman's ability to turtle up with a 3 point lead. Thirty Five points are laughable. Even if he could, he wouldn't do it.
