[Postgame Thread] Oklahoma Defeats Texas 54-48

Inkblot9

We're aware that the title is wrong and the actual score was 55-48. Blame ESPN.


DebitsOnTheLeft

OU fans: "CRUCIFY HIM! CRUCIFY HIM!" Riley: "It was a tough decision."


Mr_Anthropic_

That gave me a good chuckle bud


iamkatemoss

Imagine not being back


SiccSemperTyrannis

Texas: *be up 18 points heading into the 2nd half* Texas fans: *feel hope* Texas: "You dumb bitch"


iamkatemoss

Most of us know better than to EVER believe in Texas football.


zoells

Could~~n't~~ be you


HandSack135

need double tilda


zoells

Got in there with that quick edit.


OUisBack

What do you call a team that wins every game by 1 score? National Champions


IAmJohnnyJB

All I've learned is no matter the score, Oklahoma finds a way to keep blue balling the entire country even their own fans in a unique way every singe week. This year makes no fucking sense and I'm all here for it


crimsoneagle1

Tune in next week to see OU not score until the 4th quarter and still win the game.


boomerfreakingsooner

That West Virginia game where we never lead during any time on the clock.


legend023

Welcome to Tulane Spencer Rattler


ledonte

Gotta think his Heisman odds take a slight hit after this week


mailape

Might even fall out of the top 5 in the mock drafts now


PlaysWthSquirrels

*Miami. He's the new Tathan.


TheAquaman

Yep. No way he starts again this season. Transfer portal, here he comes.


jschneider414

No shot. He’ll declare for the draft even if he drops to the 4th round.


speedbird15

That’s what I’m saying. Why waste another year, qb stock is lower and someone will pick him up 3-4 round then he has zero pressure to learn and grow in the nfl.


Tkinzel517

Wow from throwing picks to them to throwing picks for them

Caleb should probably start

Oh man, UT fans we’re chanting “we want Caleb” during College Gameday. Hindsight is a cruel fucker. GG OU.

They hated him because he spoke the truth


MrNudeGuy

I’m in this pic and I like it


boomerfreakingsooner

You definitely make an impact!


BearsNecessity

Oklahoma gained 304 yards and scored 32 points in the final 18 minutes.


snel6424

Caleb Williams basically has to be the starter now right?


OhioBornSoonerBred

OU outscored Texas 48-20 once he came in the game. Absolutely he's the starter now.


MrNudeGuy

he only had to stop giving texas the ball and I would have been satisfied. this dude is every bit the talent that was promised.


stinkydooky

Most importantly, he doesn’t look fucking lost constantly. Everyone can talk about Rattler’s pure athleticism and form all they want, but the dude looks dumbstruck unless there’s a wide open receiver waving his hands right in front of the guy. No pocket presence, no reading the coverage, just throwing a perfect spiral right where he thought it should’ve gone in practice, but not where it should’ve gone in the game.


[deleted]

Rattler may be very good at throwing a ball to an open guy from his starting position, but unfortunately when you play football people may not be open or you may need to maneuver or even run the ball. The fumble and interceptions are the most obvious issue but to me the worst moment was when Rattler threw a ball away instead of simply moving forwards a few yards for a first down. He just seems incapable of adapting when plays develop.


michaelscarn1122

He played better than Rattler, he was a better leader than Rattler, and the team responded to him. It would be a shame to see Rattler starting again.


Jordanwolf98

That’s 100% his job


suzukigun4life

The team performed completely different once he entered the lineup. No chance Riley doesn't go with him from now on


mccoolio

He did an awesome job extending drives and giving our defense a rest. Has to be.


kevingl07

Absolutely. Complete composure shift from the minute he took over. This is a high that I wouldn’t want Lincoln to waste, the team embraced Caleb and played with noticeably more heart with him at the helm.


Special-Disastrous

It was crazy how much more dangerous the offense looked with him. It is like with Rattler we have half a playbook.


kevingl07

100%. Spence has looked lost/disinterested all year long. Caleb has the “it” factor Lincoln is used to having in a QB. Notice how much more effective Kennedy was too.


IAmJohnnyJB

Same thing with the OL as a whole, dude has ages in the backfield and the running lanes were a lot more open.


EnderTheTrender

See Rattler’s father’s tweet talking bad about the line. I wouldn’t wanna give my all for some dickhead that thinks I’m the problem either.


RadioactiveKoolaid

I kept waiting for him to make a mistake that actually mattered. But the stupid fucker kept clutching out good plays.


LessMuscularThor

Someone will assassinate Lincoln Riley if he’s not

feetandballs

“Four scores and seven field goals ago, Texas was ahead, but Caleb Williams brought forth, upon Sooner Nation, a Red River Shootout comeback win, proving once and for all that all 5 star QBs are not created equal.” Or something

Definitely

from top heisman contender to 1st round pick to bust in what 3 months..... yikes!


JoshAllen4President

He can talk to DJU about it.


WordsAreSomething

Just as pretty casual fan I always thought the Heisman hype around him was way off base.


ddottay

Rattler really got cars out of those NIL deals


MissileWaster

Even worse than getting two cars, his Raising Canes endorsement deal was giving him one extra sauce every time.

In Africa, the early 90s Bills were the greatest dynasty of all time.

Someone told me that people knew the donations were the losing team's merch and by the 3rd time they just started feeling bad for the Bills lol

I'd read a book about this.

Pain. Only bright spot is I won't have to hear about Spencer Rattler ever again


TheGreatCubone

I would like to formally thank you guys for getting rid of him


IAmJohnnyJB

Texas has now helped us get rid of Mike Stoops and Rattler, if it wasn't Texas I'd actually start liking them because of it.

It's pretty crazy that whoever their starting quarterback is seems to always take both those titles.

103 combined points. Putting the shootout back in Red River Shootout. What a fucking game.


American_Gambit

Second game today with 103 pts


apawst8

I had to double check to see if Maryland lost 100 to 3. Nope. Only 66 to 17.


QuitWhinging

Does Oklahoma have some sort of football fetish that involves edging to see how close they can get to defeat without actually losing? If so, they really outdid themselves this week.

HOW DOES OKLAHOMA KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT???


bearybear90

Usually I’d say it’s gonna catch up with them, but Caleb might actually change the offense.

Marysuncle

CommentCents

Texas really is OUs best friend. They took most of the blame for conference realignment. They got rid of Mike Stoops for us. They benched Rattler for us. Is this a rivalry or is Texas the biggest bro in CFB?


iSlacker

They also named their stadium after one of our players.


GingerGod69

Choked a 28-7 lead. Yet I'm not surprised


azulsquirrel

Texas after losing to Arkansas: "this is the worst day of my life" OU: "the worst day of your life *SO FAR*"

We are super spoiled. Ole Miss/Arkansas and Texas/OU GOTY candidates at the same time?


JanetYellensFuckboy

Not to overreact, but that was the greatest game of all time.


man_bites_soi_dog

I just heard Caleb interviewed on the Sooners radio postgame show. He sounds smart, humble, complimentary of his teammates and coaches, and most importantly, like a leader. A star was born today, gents.


Blarg1889

Check on your Longhorns fans ladies and gentlemen. This is the kind of loss you never quite get over.

"Whatever it takes to fuck Cincy" -- The Committee


whatifevery1wascalm

Spencer Rattler came into the season a Heisman favorite and strong contender for first overall pick in next year’s draft. His play this season is moving him further away from both. And ultimately he may end up transferring out. An “Anti-Joe Burrow” if you will.


hereisjonny

Inverse Burrow.


okieboat

Rattler confirms transfer when?

Fuck it, I can finally afford to fly to games next year, and this sounds like the best one to schedule ahead of time. Red River Shootout has delivered literally every year I've watched it

I’m in Dallas and went to a bar that was like a 50/50 split Texas/Oklahoma fans and as someone who had no emotional investment in this game it was the most fun I’ve had watching college ball in probably 2 or 3 years

Any Texas fan who was comfortable with a lead was kidding themselves Especially with how long the defense was on the field

I said it in the game thread: I won't be comfortable with any lead we have until at least four or five hours after the game is over.

Did Rattler just lose his job?

Absolutely


goodsam2

The backup wins a game like that and you aren't going to take it away from him. TCU, Kansas and Texas tech and a bye are the next games before Baylor that could really challenge Oklahoma. That QB battle might be interesting.

WE CAN'T KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH IT


AndrewArmy

Oklahoma improves to 6-0, including 3-0 in Big 12 games. All 5 of their wins against FBS teams were decided by 7 points or less. This was the highest scoring Red Rivalry Game. After Oklahoma trailed Texas 28-7 at the end of the first quarter, they outscored Texas 48-20, including 24-7 in the 4th quarter.


tjmax

UTs QBs dad is going to the OU after party


LTfoeoror

I guess I can say I knew Texas would lose but not in this fashion. And I think we know why Oklahoma was so bad for the first 4 games that’s been pretty much solved


Jmoe18

I know it wasnt all rattler but i just cant see the leadership qualities from him like guys in the past


-AestheticsOfHate-

After Caleb ran that 66 YD TD and everyone on the sidelines was celebrating, it cut to Rattler, looking shocked, uncomfortable and worried. That tells you all you need to know. Jalen Hurts celebrated and supported Tua when he was benched. Hurts was/is a leader


Jmoe18

Definitely, though you wont find higher character than Jalen

Williams has that Baker Mayfield energy
