His assertion that OU is, right now, a No. 2 seed is a bit more accurate. Could the Children of the Corn catch the Jayhawks napping? First-round winners have been known to do that to teams that take the first day off.
It is still possible to find Ann Arbor, MI on the map. The place does exist and is filled with kind, caring and genuine people who are exceptionally disappointed. Following a 39-7 thrashing to a team called the Ducks, one of American Football’s flagship programs is in the dumper.
The third quadrant starts at Lubbock where the Red Raiders have had A&M’s number for the past several years. This year should be no exception for Mike Leach’s aerial circus. The hapless Iowa State basketball then come to town for a probable win for the Ags. The Colorado game, played in the thin air of Boulder, could go either way but is a probable win for A&M.
The young runner bears a strong resemblance to former Sooners star Quentin Griffin. In his first three carries as a Sooner, he ran for 35 yards, showing blazing speed and quick cuts. Following the game, the Sooners might believe they have found their star running back for 2011.
NEEDS TO: Avoid the upset. The Aggies have some nice wins (Missouri, Oklahoma State, LSU and Texas stand out), but nothing spectacular. The larger reason that A&M is, for the moment, securely in the field of 65 is that they have no bad losses (K-State, at No. 76, is the lowest-ranked team in the RPI to beat A&M). A loss to Texas Tech would be a bad one.
It was clear this season in both Iowa City and Ames that the future of the programs was not now. The future was most certainly just that — the future.
NEEDS TO: Put it all together. They’ve been close several times this season, with OT losses to Texas and Kansas State, along with other near-hits (five-point losses at Oklahoma and Kansas and losses by two and five against Nebraska). If the Buffs do mix all of the ingredients together, their unorthodox style (a bit faster paced, but similar to the Pete-Carril-coached Princeton teams of the 1980s and 1990s) could make trouble for Texas, especially if the ‘Horns are looking ahead to Kansas State and Kansas.
Week 11 finds the Texas A&M Aggies facing the Kansas State Wildcats. This Aggies Wildcats contest falls on Saturday of week 11. If you wanted a conference showdown, this week 10 you got it. So, the Texas A&M Aggies allowed 21.9 points per game while the Sooners scored 37.2 per game. I got the Sooners in this game. 12 – 2 was the tally last year for the Sooners. In 2010, the Oklahoma Sooners came in ranked 3rd in passing, 83rd in rushing, and 14th in total scoring.
Why he is absent from the depth chart is a mystery right now but the fact is that Finch is only 5-7, 166 lbs. While he is explosive and exciting, he is not built to take punishment. He missed five games in 2010 due to injury and maybe head coach Bob Stoops wants to use the speedster as a change-of-pace back.
