What is a successful season for OU in 2012?

What is a successful season for OU in 2012? | Sooner4OU | Scoop.it
Today's question: What will be considered a successful season for the Sooners in 2012?


Honestly, I don't think anyone will consider this a successful season unless the Sooners get to the national championship game. That's unfortunate. But when you're a blue-chip program and a preseason Top-5 team that was preseason No. 1 last year, that's the expectation. OU can obviously have a solid season without going to the national championship. A Big 12 title would be nice. So would a BCS game appearance. But for Sooner Nation to truly consider this season a success, the Sooners will have to get to the big one.

Six Years Later Peterson Still Feels Cheated About Oregon Loss

Six Years Later Peterson Still Feels Cheated About Oregon Loss | Sooner4OU | Scoop.it

Sooner4OU Commentary: I must agree with Adrian Peterson on the Oregon loss six years ago.  It was an OU win taken away by biased officils and a replay official with an obvious oregon slant and the sad thing...eveyone knows it, including the NCAA.  It is not ionly justifiably the "Decade's Worst Call",  but also symbolic of the numerous issues surrounding how officials are selected for each game and their oversight.  It is absolutely ridiculous that these young kids can work so hard and leave it all out on the field and have it taken away in the last seconds by a corrupt group of officials.  


I am with you Adrian, I remember the t-shirts being sold around Norman saying "What The Duck?".  Actually though it was much worse than that in reality.  It rob many players, loyal fans and coaches of a well deserved win!  Shame on you Oregon administration! Shame on you corrupt officials!  Shame on you Oregon fans for accepting a false win!   Sad! Very Sad! 


By the way, if you hear an Oregon fan say "get over it", it is because they have no other answer and they ae truly ashamed, but afraid to admit it.

Oklahoma Football: 5 Freshmen Sooners You Need to Know


We all know the Oklahoma Sooners put together another solid recruiting class in 2012. As the countdown to fall camp continues, the question of who will see playing time immediately becomes more and more compelling.Fortunately for the recruits, a number of them have the tools and opportunities to make immediate contributions in Norman. Don’t be surprised if multiple freshmen become household names fairly quickly in 2012. Even if they don’t become regular players immediately, several players should at least get some valuable playing time.As we impatiently anticipate the beginning of another football season, here is an appetizer: five OU freshman you need to know heading into the 2012 season.

At least conference realignment gives us something to do during the long hot summers between spring football and real football.


The latest rumble to impact teams in our neck of the woods is word that Florida State might be willing to talk to the Big 12. Check that, the Seminoles are completely loyal to the ACC. No, wait, FSU is considering all its options.
