Not many upsets throughout the country, though some of the alleged sports “experts” are doubling down on the dumb-ass to explain why their “darlings” struggled.
In Norman, Ok. it was Coach Stoops 200th game as the Sooners’ head coach and his 161st victory. The first team units on offense and defense looked to be in mid season form and thoroughly dominated the out manned Tech Bulldogs.
By midway through the second quarter Sooner backups were being sprinkled into starting line ups and by the third quarter the reserves on defense were in nearly every position. On offense the talented, yet inexperienced RBs, proved there is no cause for concern. They performed well as a group, and with the massive and veteran O-line they were beasts.
The team gave great effort, were focused and no serious injuries occurred, which were three things I was hoping for.
As is the custom at OU, the official intro video was played prior to the players taking the field and it was very well done.
One significant event took place, OU’s leading WR Sterling Shepherd passed his father on the all time receiving yardage list with his TD catch. R.I.P. Derrick, your son is destined to be an all-time Sooner great, as you were.
