I don't. Florida is going to kill them. Alabama's defense only got them to punt on time. OU's defense is not nearly as good.


Florida is more than fast enough to halt the OU offense as well. Stoops will be denied again.

Texas got robbed. They had a tougher schedule and beat OU. BCS is so full of shit. USC would have been a better choice to face Florida.

"Florida is more than fast enough to halt the OU offense as well."

Speed won't help them much if they're getting mauled by that O-line.

I think this is going to be a fabulous game.

Yes.

Florida is going to have a damned tough time getting pressure on OU, just like everyone else has. Bradford will have all day to throw and he has 5 playmakers at skill positions on every snap (combined with 3 lineman who will be 1st-3rd round picks).

This year is a new year. There is a reason Oklahoma scored the more points than any other team in the history of college football this year. To say OU has no shot to win the game is asinine. OU's O-line is the best in college football.

I disagree to a certain point.

1 - I don't think OU's D is as bad as you think it is. When you've played in the big 12 this year, your defensive stats will suffer.

2 - OU has seen Florida's scheme all year. They've had lots of chances to play against the spread.

3 - IMO Florida hasn't played against a team of this quality yet. Alabama - Overrated. OU I think you could easily make the argument that they have played team(s) as good as Florida.

If OU plays like they have in their last 4 bowl games, no, they can't win.

The great thing about bowl games is they reveal how great each conferences perceived strength/weaknesses really are. People think the defenses is the Big 12 are terrible, but maybe the offenses are just really great. In the SEC, they are perceived as having great defenses, but horrible offenses. I must say that I think Florida does seem like the most balanced team in college football, but any team can be beat on any given day. OU may have too much O for them.

I really hope Urban and Mullen smarten up and stop with running Tebow up the middle every other play. Teams have figured it out,it's time to do something else,at least call some stuff to the outside or something. Also Brandon Spikes needs to play a lot better for us then he did last night. I don't know what his deal was,but he didn't do a damned thing yesterday.

Florida's scheme isn't the same as the Big XII spread. It's much more run oriented. Hell, it's almost like a bastard child of the triple option with about 20% of Missouri's O thrown in.

The key to the entire game will be OU's front four. The DE's are going to have to flare out wide to keep outside contain, and the DT's are going to have to get a good interior push to funnel Florida inside the box where their speed and elusiveness will be negated. If they can do that, they'll have success.

Of course, if Oklahoma really wanted to, they could just run the ball down Florida's throat the entire game

So it's similar to KSU's O from the 90's and early 00's that gave Stoops major headaches, even though OU had better talent at almost every position. And guess what, WVU ran the same O KSU did, also.

OU is going to have to score a LOT of points. Florida's O is going to slice up OU.

A few trick plays by Florida will win it, along with a few by OU blowing up in their face.

Of course they do. All the people saying OU has no chance are the same people who said Alabama would lose by 30 points. Florida isn't going to be able to stop OU's offense. I'll wager that the game will come down to turnovers.

12-08-2008, 12:01 AM
It'll be interesting to see. You could make the argument that OU will be like Alabama's line, only with a lot better skill players. And as we saw once again yesterday, despite everyone getting all worked up to the contrary, if you can control the line of scrimmage, you will be in the game.

I think OU has the horses to compete, but they're also the team that history says will tighten up and not play to their potential.

You can basically hand the trophy over to the SEC again.

I Fucking HATE watching the Gators play. It's like watching a cheeser play Madden. They run a variation of about 10 plays total. Everyone knows what's coming, but you can't do shit about it. I hate FL, and I hate Tebow, but OU is pretty much cooked IMO.

Alabama's OL is pretty damn good. It's not like Florida hasn't played against top OL's.

2 - OU has seen Florida's scheme all year. They've had lots of chances to play against the spread.

3 - IMO Florida hasn't played against a team of this quality yet. Alabama - Overrated. OU I think you could easily make the argument that they have played team(s) as good as Florida.

OU hasn't seen Florida's scheme all year. They haven't played a single team that plays offense the way Florida does. They also haven't played an offensive team with the weapons, athletes and speed that Florida possesses. The only team OU has played that you could try and make the argument is on the caliber of Florida is Texas - and OU lost.

It'll be interesting to see. You could make the argument that OU will be like Alabama's line, only with a lot better skill players. And as we saw once again yesterday, despite everyone getting all worked up to the contrary, if you can control the line of scrimmage, you will be in the game.

I think OU has the horses to compete, but they're also the team that history says will tighten up and not play to their potential.

True, the difference is Alabama has a much better defense than OU which helped keep them in the game.

A big factor and advantage in this game for Florida will be special teams. Florida has stellar special teams while OU's coverage units are.... not.

Well, here's my analysis on the supposedly poor OU defense. Until Texas, the only team that scored more than 20 on them was Cincinnati, a pretty good team this year. OU led most of the game against Texas but lost their star LB and couldn't make the adjustment during the game. They had a couple of games where they had to adjust their defense against the Kansas teams, and with the exception of the rivalry away game against OSU, the defense limited the offensive output of the other team each game. IMO, this seems to suggest that the adjustments in their defense finally got their game legs under them. I don't think the OU defense is going to get raped like alot of people here think. It will get scored on, but will itget scored on enough?

We all know about OU's offense, they haven't been held below 35 points all year. Florida counters with a defense that hasn't given up big points outside of the one boo-boo to Ole Miss. But, has Florida really seen an offense as explosive as OU's? There's no denying the SEC has been down this year.

In conference play:

Tenn: 16.1 ppg
Miss: 26.0 ppg
Ark: 20.9 ppg (Common Opponent, lost to Texas 52-10)
LSU: 25.9 ppg
Kent: 17.8 ppg
Geor: 32.1 ppg
Vand: 16.2 ppg
S. Car: 20.4 ppg
Ala: 30.5 ppg

Ave: 22.9 ppg

By contrast, OU's in-conference play opponents:

Bay: 24.9 ppg
Tex: 41.1 ppg
Kan: 31.4 ppg
KSt: 28.9 ppg
Neb: 35.5 ppg
Tam: 26.8 ppg
Tech: 44.0 ppg
OSt: 35.3 ppg
Miz: 38.4 ppg

Ave: 34.0

That's a heathy 11 point average difference. OU has played 6 teams currently ranked in the Top 25 with two others receiving votes in various polls. Florida has played 3 currently ranked in the Top 25 with just one other receiving votes.

I think it will be a great game, and yes, I think OU has a great chance of winning. Nebraska was often criticized for not winning Bowl games before breaking through as well. I don't think one should take too much from past performances. This OU team will be prepared for this game.

As much as I hate them, Oklahoma is a really, really, REALLY good football team that is hitting on all cylinders right now. On offense they can play fast or slow, air it out or grind it out. On defense they can just keep throwing in big, fast, 4 and 5 star D-linemen that get in the backfield and stuff the run.

Florida is a good team too, but I think OU wins this one.

Well everyone including Tim Tebow jokes about playing the Big 12 defenses because they suck ass...

Which all the more reason I hope OU comes to play and does the Big 12 proud rather than the way they have played lately in BCS games.

Frankly, I wanted Texas to be there because I think Texas is better and plays defense better. But, OU has been doing better on defense the last few games. We will see.

Big 12 defenses don't all suck ass. It's just that many Big 12 offenses have become juggernauts. The defenses will adjust.

If OU beats Florida it doesn't mean the Big XII is a better conference, it means that OU is better than Florida. The Pac 10 wasn't the best conference when USC won 2 years in a row. Now, if the Big XII won all its bowl matchups and loses the "national title" game, you'd have more of an argument for B 12 superiority anyway.

And it is just like any other sport with different conferences where they talk shit on each other.. The SEC or B12 are not hands and feet better then the other..

Only great team Alabama played they lost to, Clemson and LSU were a joke and like MU this year in shitting on themselves..


Yet, we have idiots out there proclaiming the SEC is superior?? Florida played and beat Alabama, that is about it with quality teams if they are quality.. All the other ranked teams they beat fell off the face of the earth because they were not that good, kind of like MU.. Nothing wrong with that, but you certainly don't say we are going to kill another conference champ because of it..


As much as I hate OU, them or Texas are the best overall teams in the NCAA this year.. And will prove it during their bowl games.. If I am wrong I will eat crow, but I doubt it..

If the SEC is crap outside of Florida/Bama then is the Big XII crap outside of OU/UT/TTU?? If that's the case then if Florida's only quality win is Alabama then they have just as many as OU, UT or TTU - one.

This is another silly argument. I could argue the SEC defenses appear to be good because they don't play quality offenses. The good news is that we get to find out, I just don't think its going to be the domination the Florida/SEC crowd envisons.

The only thing we can point to is the Texas-Arkansas game since it was the only one played between the confrences this season. Arkansas averaged 20.9 points in conference and were dominated 52-10. Florida beat them 38-7 and Alabama won 49-14. Those are pretty similar scores, so I would expect a competitive game.

Texas got robbed. They had a tougher schedule and beat OU. BCS is so full of shit. USC would have been a better choice to face Florida.

LMAO a harder schedule? Are you kidding me.

Let me tell you why OU will win this.

1. They play great when they are the underdogs.
2. Their O is unstoppable right now
3. English will be back
4. FL best D players are on the line, OU's has some studs up front on the OL, in Duke and Phil
5.FL Secondary and LB are suspect
6. OU lost the last two bowl games because they were supposed to kill both teams, they had a month to get cocky and sit there and watch everyone say OU was going to kill them, and they got big headed and didn't come to play.
