    so, i've watched ou play quite a bit this season on tv. they are pretty much the best team the Buffs will have played since ut in the 70-3 game.

    they look virtually unbeatable to me, but anyone can beat anyone in one game, so here's a scenario for how i think it would have to happen...

    first, CU has to get to the quarterback. as good as that guy has looked, he has made some mistake and gotten rattled on the very few occasions when teams have been able to get pressure on him. tulsa actually hung with them, briefly, by trying to be very aggressive with the ou qb. the ou ol is huge, but i think our interior dl can hold up ok... i'd feel better if we had more big bodies to rotate inside. perri doesn't have the size to man them up... but, nicholas and hypo, if they don't wear down, should be ok. we need to use speed and deception to get to the qb. bull rushes probably won't get it down. and, if we are selling out like this to get to the qb, obviously, we need the rest of the d to play lights out great. the potential is there. our d is undersized and we don't have enough speed or depth overall, but we have a few playmakers on d and we just need everyone else to do their jobs.

    second, CU must strike early and deep. we have to get all that defensive speed off the line of scrimmage. that means we need to get a guy behind the defense early and make a play down the field. if they have to respect the deep strike, they will have to play more honestly in the box and it will open up some running lanes.

    third, CU cannot turn the ball over. period. we need mistake free ball. cody will need to play his best game.

    fourth, our Buffs need to shock them in some way... either an electric special teams td or an int for a td or a trick td play... get them on their heels. they aren't expecting CU to make a game of it. time to jump on them and get them off balance.

    fifth, our guys have to go hard for 4 quarters. we don't have the depth to match them. we need all of our guys to sell out hard for this win and never lay off. in the beginning of the asu game, our Buffs were out-toughing them and then it all broke down. it can't break down this week.

    do these things and CU will shock the world on saturday.

    GO BUFFS!

    i dunno... they ARE really massive... i think they average like 320+ or something crazy like that. former CU commit (and in-stater) loadholt is starting on the ol.

    but, they look to me like they might be susceptible to speed. they don't look like they have the fleetest of feet on the ol.

    we will see.

    Buffs win if they
    1) Win the turnover battle. No picks or fumbles on offense.
    2) Convert >60 percent of their 3rd downs.
    3) Turn visits to the Red Zone into visits to the End Zone
    4) Defense puts pressure on the QB
    5) Same old rushing defense that we are used to shows up.
    6) Kicking game involves touchbacks, punts inside the OU 20, and no missed PATs.
    7) CU relaxes, has fun, executes, and BELIEVES!
    8) Wouldn't hurt if OU falls behind early, gets flustered, and starts making Stoop-id mistakes.

    Monkeys could just as well fly out of Sam Bradford's butt. But this IS a Kool-aid thread.

    I'm guessing that if they scored more points, they might have a kind of good chance of winning. But that's just me. :lol:

    the game will be played between the 40s....

    ...there will be 65 turnovers...

    ...and 1300 yards total offense in this game...

    ...it will look like a tennis match out there...

    ...the buffs will win on a field goal in the last 26 seconds of the game...

    final score... buffs 3, landthieves 0...

    take it to the bank.

    :smile2:

    ***CU's receiver's will be open. Catch the ball!

    ***CU's O-Line will struggle

    ***CU needs to stop the run. If you can do that, y'all have a pretty good chance. Sam Bradford's first real away game, he won't be on fire. He'll have his "B" game in all likelihood. Stop the run and you'll b eright there.

    ***OU Rufneks are nothing but a bunch of f-in' hillbillies.

    Manhattan Beach Buff,

    That sounds exactly like Miami's strategy and we saw how that worked. About OU's O-line, the consensus among the national pundits, not the local hillbillies round here, is that it is one of the best, if not the best, in CFB. There is a reason Bradford has been virtually untouched, and that includes Miami's D.

    I think this game will be closer, but I still have OU covering.

    Heh, I tried to sign up with a "Sooner" name, but never received the activation email so I went with my OUInsider UID. Anyway, I'm no longer a 1-hit wonder. (there's ya' a line to do something with)

    This will be OU's closest game yet IMO, but 30 points is still a pretty good beatdown. :thumbsup:

    Hawkins is a good coach and I expect CU to be the front-runner in the north very soon. Callahan is a joke and NU is facing a huge dropoff next year. Mizzou can't ever sustain anything. The future is bright for Sooners and Buff fans.
