“Big Game Bob” is used as a mocking term these days. Stoops’ Sooners have lost too many of them in recent years to scare anyone.
It started when Southern California humiliated them in the title game after the 2004 season, 55-19. It continued in 2005 when the Sooners stumbled to 8-4 and began a trend of frustrating losses to archrival Texas, a team they once owned. Boise State got them 43-42 in the Fiesta Bowl after the 2006 season and then West Virginia did it again, 48-28 in 2008. This season, the Sooners entered the Texas game top-ranked and left with a 45-35 loss despite leading throughout.
As surprising as all the losses have been, as confusing as OU’s ability to look dominant in regular games and be dominated in major ones, it’s what’s causing the problem that is most stunning.
Oklahoma’s Defense. Bob Stoops’ Defense. The very thing that made him great has fallen apart against the spread offense. From 2000-04 OU was never ranked worse than seventh in scoring defense. This season they are 57th. In its past five games this season, OU opponents have scored at least 28 points each game.

On Dec. 6, 2003, Oklahoma was undefeated, ranked No. 1 and ticketed for a BCS championship shot in the Sugar Bowl against LSU. The Sooners were widely expected to win their second national title in four seasons. They were playing Kansas State in the Big 12 title game that day, and they were two-touchdown favorites.
Then Sproles sprinted through Stoopsie's defense like the wind rushing down the Plain. He ran for 235 yards that night, plus earned 88 receiving yards, and K-State shocked the misfiring Sooners 35-7.
It was like knocking the teeth out of the schoolyard bully. All the invincibility disappeared that day.
2004 Sugar Bowl -- LSU 21, Oklahoma 14
2005 Orange Bowl -- USC 55, Oklahoma 19
2007 Fiesta Bowl -- Boise State 43, Oklahoma 42, OT
2008 Fiesta Bowl -- West Virginia 48, Oklahoma 28

If you happen to play UT and beat them this time, you have my permission to have a shot to play for the NC. Until then UT holds the nod.

Stoops made some amazing adjustments on us over the bye week. Noone could have predicted this.
While last night was surely no fluke, Tech is not ruled out of future games with a Stoops Leach matchup. But with so much on the line and such poor adjustments on our side, next year we should assume a 0-1 start before we even play a game. That way, we have no reason to feel ahead of the Big 12. This conference does not allow easy wins.
Please guys, stomp Baylor.
I admit that I was SO wrong about OU’s home field advantage. The Oklahoma fans deserve their glory as much as the team.
Regardless, I am proud of the Red Raiders. This football team deserved every ounce of attention and praise they have recieved this year, maybe more.
Next year, we should assume that this loss carries over so that we start 0-1 before our first game. That way, maybe we can play with something to prove and vengeance to work for until the OU game in 2009.
Our biggest failure, maybe the only true failure, was on defense. Noone tackled properly until midway through the third quarter.
I was most disappointed by the D.

1. Give credit where it is due.
One, Great job to Coach Stoops. Earned back his ‘Big Game Bob’ status and its no joke. Making the adjustments in the bye week paid off big time and he led his Sooners to an impressive victory.
Two, OU defense. Those guys are the ONLY ones who could hold our talented offense, rattle our QB, penetrate our line, and force big turnover plays. We are not used to having to punt.
Three, OU fans. I could not have been more wrong about home field advantage. They lived up to legend and made it very uncomfortable. You deserve the glory as well as the team.
FOUR, TEXAS TECH RED RAIDERS, I salute your sportsmanship. Look back at penalties. OU had alot of dirty and blatant personal fouls.(particularly the horse collar on Crabs’ first catch) They played well, but not with professionalism.
It was not a pretty first half that set the game in motion against us. We had penalties, but we took the game in stride. And though we did not actually show our true skills, we showed incredible humility and class in a devastating loss.

Yeah and if you happen to play TTU and beat them this time you have my permission to have a shot to play for the NC.
If OU beats OSU next week - OU is getting the nod That win, will be the only big xii south top 25 win on the road. If they lose, TTU is going. TU doesn't have a chance.
