[Game Thread] Texas vs. Oklahoma (12:00PM ET) - Second Half
By - CFB_Referee
We need the clown James Franklin to beat Michigan
I love how Marvin Mims almost always taps the closest defender on the helmet after a fair catch. I’m a sucker for sportsmanship.
And When I Die
I'll be a sooner dead
Way to go Boomer-bros!
Please beat Michigan, please?
honestly don't know what to expect. Does Nebraska have the horses to win? yes they do. Will they? I have no idea.
I second this
Sark leaving his D to die on the field all 2nd half because his inept O loves passing too much...tale as old as time.
usually thats Lincoln Riley's play.
I just remembered that texas had over 90 recruits at the game to watch them blow a 21 point lead.
That's how we lost Adrian Peterson. These games have such enormous implications. Not saying he was committed to Texas but he was on the sideline when OU smoked us.
Our version is that AD asked if there was an opportunity to start if he could prove he deserved it and Mack told him Cedric Benson their guy and the next year was his.
Damn I have not seen anything like this comeback in a long time.
You love to see it
I mean, fuck both these teams
What's your boy u/FuckTheSooners?
Rattler needs to sign an NIL deal with Dr. Pepper. New face of the transfer portal.
From #1 pick to #1 transfer portal qb
I was saying same thing here he comes to the transfer portal
Spencer Rattler is in the conversation for ugliest player in the history of college football
Mahomie looks kind of weird too.
Spencer is like a rattler in that he makes a lot of noise but is ultimately unimpressive.
Like a snake? Fuck those things. Now he's gonna be like the one in Hard Target.
How much money did OU give the refs
They did blow 2 big calls, but its big 12 refs, what you expect
What calls did they blow? I wasn’t watching the game.
there was a 3rd down conversion in 1st where WR went out of bounds on his own (was reviewed, but refs didn't even mention the out of bounds), and then there was a forced fumble on a pass play when QB tried to get rid of it which wasn't reviewed.
edit: both drives ended with scores for OU
Agree with you on the 3rd Down conversion in the 1st quarter. Huge miss that may have turned the game. (Or gotten Rattler out quicker, so who knows.) I kept waiting for the giveback call from the refs, which never came.
The pass or fumble play one was iffy... Probably would have stood if reviewed. If it had been called a fumble on the field, then that call would have stood if reviewed as well... Too close to call either way on replay, imo, and hard luck for Texas.
Lol the downvotes
Only our AD knows. It sits in an envelope every season on our AD’d desk until RRS and then we nominate runner to go deliver it in the dark of night. It’s a really big tradition, and if you’re awarded the honor of moneygiver that season, they also let you fuck Bevo.
This is how you become 7-win Sark
Yeah early leads don’t mean much when sark is ur guy
This is actually a revolutionary day for several reasons
Not only did I not catch a temp ban during the OU game but I managed to catch two reports.
Two separate Reddit crisis resource contacts.
One happened after a referee joke and the other happened after I compared Texas fans to the biblical tower of salt in the story of Abraham
I got one because apparently drinking is not funny and is somehow a personal attack lol.
Temp ban lol. The mods here are sensitive.
It wasn’t a tower of salt. I think you’re mixing the Tower of Babel with the story of Lot and his family fleeing from Gomorrah or however it’s spelled. They were told not to look back at the city and Lots wife did and POOF, pillar of the finest middle eastern NaCl you ever did find
How much of the short ban was because of not Old Testamenting correctly? 75%?
The Old Testament really is quite the read
Imagine having the power to summon bears on little shit kids making fun of you
I mean it think we get what he means since pillar and tower are pretty similarly shaped.
Ehhhhhhhhhh idk about that
That's the one, pillar of salt
I low key didn't wanna get too fire and brimstone lol and say "the story of lot and Tarah fleeing Gomorrah of yore"
Lol yeah there would’ve been more pillars of salt on the thread haha
No temp ban today no sir
Moral of the story for Texas: *Keep feeding Bijan the football when you're up by 21.*
I think OU adjusted to Bijan in the 2nd half. They were stopping him when he did get the ball. Maybe he got banged up, didn’t look the same after halftime.
Only had 27 yards after halftime
Went from scoring 38 in the first half to 10 in the second. Definitely had something figured out.
OU definitely adjusted their run defense, kudos to them. But Sark just totally abandoned the run. No switching up sweeps, trickery, power/traps; just started calling deep passes. Looked like Warren Moon.
Yeah TX offensive coach shares a lot this loss.
Bro y’alls coach got concussed for sure.
He started taking shots for every longhorn TD and got carried away ;D
This looked... very reminiscent of the Texas-ISU game from last year. Herman trying to put it away with big plays and ends up losing.... but a much, much bigger lead.
First of all, damn. Would’ve loved to win that game but wow, epic comeback Boomers.
Texas feels like it’s still 1-2 years removed from being anything super serious. I like our chances of still making the B12 Championship game, but with Baylor and K-State, who knows?
Either way, once Sark gets a few of his own guys on the OL and Defense, we should see improvement
Don't write off OSU like that.
Of course not, I just mentioned the first two teams that came to mind!
I've never been so sad and then so happy all within one football game.
I started drinking way too much in the first half.
It really hit every emotion for me
It's me I'm Spencer rattler
Someone send me money to be a sponsor of useless products unless this counts as a scam then plz ignore
Jokes aside, for Texas, this is a game you can build on, or let it completely crush you.
Nah we took their souls, I hope.
I didn't say which one I wanted... hah
What is there to build on? Our defense is shit like always. And while you are trying to find which top recruit to start at QB, we have…Casey Thompson and Hudson Card.
Worthy and Bijan are great. Hopefully they can scrape by without any injuries and make it to the league.
Once you get over the loss, you will be able to look at it objectively. I don't blame you for your current thoughts though. I get it.
Oh…I’m over it. Post-Colt, we have been an above average program. That’s what we are. Today is no different than the last twelve years of evidence.
Y’all are a great team. Just ran into better teams a couple times. You’ll be fine, esp after fighting back. See you in the big 12 chip!
oU was gifted 14 points
You will get downvoted cause TeXaSS. But the refs gave it to them: the first touchdown was clearly stepping out of bounds and that hit on Williams was a fumble, his arm was not moving forward.
Then explain how the ball traveled 10 yards downfield 🧐
I will gladly show you 900 examples of how this can happen. But right now I'm just too salty eating this L haha.
> Y’all are a great team.
No, they're not. They mediocre to terrible on both lines. They have two DL on their whole roster (Ojomo, Collins) who would play in the SEC, no one on their OL would play in this conference. They're a damn sight far from great.
> who would play in the SEC
bruh even Colorado, UCLA and fucking Georgia State showed that they can play in the SEC. If Calzone can play QB in the SEC, a whole lot of players will do just fine
Says the guy who roots for a team who almost lost to Colorado 🤣
When your best smack talk refers to a win, you have nothing.
Lol get ready for 4th in the SEC west while Texas continues to compete for a Big 12 ship ag-bro
They have some skill position players that are young and going to be stars if they can get the rest of the team to come together. Big IF though.
Worthy seems great and I don't feel like this loss is really Thompson's fault. I mean, Texas did score quite a lot of points, you know.
Anyone blaming this on Thompson is stupid. You score 40 points, your defense should be able to hold the opposition to 39 or fewer.
Not blaming it on Casey at all. Mostly just pointing out an example of the talent gap that exists between these teams.
Against a benched QB and a true freshman who didn't even play his senior HS year. UT defense was trash (I see the irony here).
Auburn Georgia or Iowa PSU
And to think I almost went to a craft store with the family.
Opposite for me started the day at a dance performance and the Cheese festival; came home midway through the 3rd. I know a lot of credits going to Williams, but as a true CFB fan, I know I played an integral part in OUr comeback.
The watonga cheese festival?
My wife was pushing for some pumpkin festival shit down town. NGL was looking like a good option there for a bit.
Spencer Rattler has entered the transfer portal.
Yeah. Almost has to. Sucks. I blame the oline more than him. But Williams is the real deal. And better suited for a sketchy line. Rattler gonna be really good somewhere.
Horns, you're embarrassing us.
I figured we'd learn what kind of team we were after this one. Nope, still don't know.
Hopefully one where Spencer’s not the starting qb
we take on the shape of our opponent. we are the abyss that stares back
I think we know if Williams is named the starter tbh, we looked completely different that second half
Yup. With williams, top 10 team. With ratass. Maybe top 20. Prob not.
I have no dog in this fight, but that is the best regular season football game I have ever seen!
OU has a history of being on the losing side of instant classics and all time great games. It's nice to finally win one!
Right? Boise State still hurts, but I'll never forgive the refs for that Oregon game. Still gets me fired up.
And the UGA Rose Bowl
That was the worst.
Ole Miss vs Arkansas was on at the same time and just as good. Tragically, my picture-in-picture wasn’t working.
An instant classic!
Go back and watch extended highlights of LSU - Texas A&M 7OT game :)
Let me have my fun 🤩
Okay, fine. Here’s your fun back
At what point do I consult my doctor on this erection I got from that last Brooks drive?
I think after 4 hours?
How is this thread not locked yet 🤨
They asked Rattler to do it and he's still waiting for an opening
I think game threads get locked when postgame threads go up, which takes a little bit.
That was the wildest game I've watched in a long time. Biggest comeback, highest scoring, Rattler benched, Worthy going super saiyan, crazy start, crazy finish. Just wow. That's a game that would make anybody understand why folks are so nuts about CFB.
Season is not over, and we don't suck because of one game. Especially a game where we almost blew out a top 10 team.
You can't "almost blow out" a team and end up losing lmao
Y’all are fine and had a great game! Gg texas bros! Boomer!
Words can mean anything if you just shuffle them around
Your season definitely isn't over. You can still lose to us one more time.
You almost got blown out by us when everyone was saying you guys would win by way more.
Texas sucks lol
Would a team that sucks lose by a score that close and almost blow you out. Or even put the game in overtime. Or score that much on you.
yes. texas absolutely sucks and will always suck
Same with you since it's been 13 years since OU won a national title. Win the big 12 and get bitch slapped in the playoffs. That's OU
please give me more. This is so pathetic from you lol
Struck a nail huh, tell me how is it OU has all these big 12 titles yet fail in the playoffs. Every year and lose to teams in many cases had a worse record than them. That's pathetic.
4 straight L's to OU
the spread was like three points dude. maybe listen to real people instead of strawmen
Shut up texas
Flair up, coward.
When he's right he's right
Y’all’s defense might suck though. Maybe. It’s a confusing team this year
Texas looked much better than I remember them looking in many years. Though the rivalry game is often pretty close, so it may not mean much.
Soon it’ll just mean more.
Y’all better than #21 imho
You guys don’t suck because of one game. You suck because you’re texas
lol. Go plow some hay.
actually i think i’m gonna go plow your mom instead
But that goes against your rules of keeping it in the family!
Anyone need a QB? There might be a decent one in the portal this evening.
Better than Calzone!
cliff notes for those like us that missed the game? I saw CW came in and threw some dime pieces but Rattler also had a toss to Stoops?
They switched Rattler out for most of the game after a few disastrous mistakes. He was brought back in for a conversion to tie up the game and then immediately benched again. Maybe he'll stick around but it definitely felt like Williams will be the starter next week.
Should have said "decent*"
*maybe just mediocre.
How the fuck do you give up a touchdown there lmaoo
Never seen anything like it wtf
Rodney Anderson did it against Kstate in 2017 as time expired.
One of my favorite RB runs ever
After this loss, deadlifts are very much on the table today.
Maybe tackling drills should be
Now to watch the anti-thesis of this game. Iowa vs Penn.
Texas had a 97.1% win probability in the third quarter.
Rattler goes from heisman favorite to probably late second or early third rounder.
We’re talking tens of millions he lost by his poor play
Rattler will never play a down in the NFL
Raising Cane’s will draft as full time spokesman
Oh no! How will he ever scrape by on only a few dozen million dollars?
That looked painful, Horns. Was it painful?
Show me on the doll where OU hurt you
Remove the doll's trousers if necessary.
You think we can feel anything after the last several years?
I've been dead inside for a while.
Brutal, thank you for your commentary
*Please describe in detail.*
God I can’t wait for OU to join the SEC and have to actually play real teams.
You mean like when they played Florida in the Cotton Bowl
I fully realize I came to the Texas/OU thread and poured myself in gasoline and handed over the matches.
But I do get tired of watching OU, and OSU for that matter, get away with playing such weak schedules. And get away with it.
OU destroyed Florida every which way last year. That’s fair. I’m just not sure they can keep that going week to week when they can barely win against Tulane, Nebraska, West Virginia and K State.
And honestly. If they go to the SEC and perform, then good for them.
But to act like they don’t have it easy as is…
Flair up punk
I legitimately don’t know how?
