I’m starting a post-game blog with thoughts, random observations, or unique finds on the innerwebs that are all about the game or Sooners. I’ll try to be consistent about it so bear with with me.
As I tweeted, after waiting for 8 months for OU football I wouldn’t mind having an 11AM kickoff just this one time. But alas, it wasn’t my call.
After the long wait, it was finally, FINALLY, “Football Time in Oklahoma”! The Sooners performed as they should. Fired up (Thanks in part to The Ultimate Warrior’s message to Tom Wort), prepared, and showed no mercy. There was some sloppiness and a few busted defensive plays that lead to Tulsa’s scores, but overall the “sharks” attacked with purpose.
On offense, Landry and Ryan showed they were still a threat. The question was the runningback committee and how effective it would be. Well, it was VERY effective. Brennan Clay and Dominique Whaley were the co-starters and became a hard-hitting 1-2 punch, especially Whaley. This was his coming out party. Folks, we will control and win a lot of games this year having those 2 in the backfield, PLUS having a slasher like Roy Finch.
The final score, 14-47, and a statement that Oklahoma is back and like every year, a serious contender for the National Championship game.
The Intro Video.
Every game starts out with the much anticipated “Intro Video” to fire up fans in the stands. This was (in my humble opinion) one of their best and shows why they win national awards in video production. I have a buddy who works in the Sooner Vision department and props to him and the crew. AWESOME JOB! Here’s the video in case you haven’t seen it…
I’ll keep this brief. I was told the decal would change and why, and I’m OK with that. It’s a little disappointing but totally understand the reason.
