hmmm... we have got to see what they can do on defense first. A season is very long. I do hope they topple the big 12. It is time.

Huzzah for OSU hiring defensive coordinator Bill Young! See all the posts about it, mostly from UM fans who are so disgruntled they can't even remember ever having gruntled.

Perhaps Stillwater fans can be a bit more patient. One "can't expect to see calves running in the fields the first day after you let the bulls to the cows" (Calvin Coolidge). One "would, however, like to see a few contented cows" (Herbert Hoover).

Last year, the OSU defense showed considerable improvement over the "matador defenses" of the last couple of years, but it still wasn't close to league championship material. The OSU offense scored 41 points on OU a week after Texas and Texas Tech wrapped up their seasons. Not only was it not enough to win the game, it wasn't enough to shake the image of the OU team. OU remained ahead of Texas in the polls and got conference and national title shots.

It would be great if a new defensive coordinator worked magic in his first season. It would be more realistic to hope for another fine year in 2009 and a dream of an amalgamation of offense, defense, and special teams winning a national championship in 2011.
