    So OU goes 52-2 against Chattanooga? WTF? Who missed their blocks and is spending all of today running stairs?

    Frosh longsnapper sailed the hike over the punters head. Punter ran back and basically shoveled the ball out the back of the end zone.

    If anyone is running the stairs it'll be the LS and the P - with the entire defense in full chase mode (for blowing their shutout). :lol:

    Why would the punter be running stairs, unless it was a snap he was supposed to be able to handle? Knocking it out of the back of the end zone is the correct play in that situation.

    What is interesting is that the score was 50-0 at halftime.

    Then there was a terrific lightning storm over Norman, which caused a 70+ minute delay.

    I was a bit surprised that OU came out in the 2nd half and only scored 7 points. I guess the long delays (and Bob Stoops begging them not to run it up) had something to do with that.

    I do not understand why OU plays these games. At the end of the day, OU would have been better off having another scrimmage, because playing against their own team would have been a much better test. Chattanooga was basically a high school team. Their coach was on the radio before the game and he came right out and said, "We know we're not going to win this game -- we're in this for the $400,000 pay day."

    I had a big discussion with my brother about this and said that OU would have gotten a much better test, and therefore more improved football team, if they had played Rice, or UTEP or some scrub school like that. He said those schools would demand a return trip- and OU would not agree to play an out-of-conference road game against a non-BCS school....

    This the new trend amongst the have nots in college football. They want a Home-Away-Home series and some of the larger schools are not willing to do that. These schools used to take these games for the money but are no longer as willing to do so without something in return.

    Just don't schedule Utah in your home opener. :smile2:

    the interesting thing about that game was OU was up 50-0 at halftime and Chattanooga led in time of possession (at the half) with 1 first down.

    how is that even possible?

    Punt returns for touchdowns, long scoring plays from scrimmage, turnovers returned for TD's, etc. I'm sure there was a lot of that in the first half. In a turnover for TD situation, no time of possession is used at all.

    OU

    1) 1st down, score
    2) 1st down, score
    3) 1st down, score
    4) 1st down, score
    5) 1st down, score
    6) 1st down, score
    7) 1st down, score
    8) 1st down, incomplete, 2nd down, 6 yard gain, 3rd down almost halftime, fieldgoal.

    Chatanooga:
    1) 1,2,3 punt
    2) 1,2,3 punt
    3) 1,2,3 punt
    4) 1,2 turnover
    5) 1,2,3, punt
    6) 1,2,3 turnover

    Obviously, Chatanooga was playing ball-possession.

    That's got to be the most boring game ever.
