This article is so misinformed, it's laughable. Oklahoma had the highest scoring offense in the history of college football 2 seasons ago. Last season half the starters were injured for most or all of the season, yet still scored 8 wins. They are not a spread offense, they are multiple, they can spread the field, and they line up in the power-I just as often. When the O-line is working with 3rd and 4th string, starting RB injured, top WR injured, no TE's left on the roster, you do what you have to do to try and win. No Defense? Oklahoma has had a top defense every year for the last decade. When you run 100+ plays and score 8-10 touchdowns in a game, you give the other team alot of opportunities to play offense, so the stats are skewed. Having said that, you still don't see power houses like Florida, in what is basically in a home game for the Gators, scoring as many points as they did against most of their SEC opponents.
You should fully expect Oklahoma to be at least 4-5 games better, and if they weren't ranked in the top 10 I'd be worried for the state of NCAA football. Obviously the poll voters aren't nearly as ignorant and misinformed as this guy.
