    The Road Warrior Report - Orange Bowl CFP Semifinal Review - December 30, 2018

    MIAMI GARDENS, FL – The pundits said we didn’t have a chance, not with our dumpster fire of a defense. In the end, they were right, as it took the Sooner offense a quarter to get going against Alabama’s defense, and by that time the Tide were up 28-0. The Sooners outscored the Tide 34-17 from there, but it was too little, too late, as Bama prevailed 45-34 and advanced to the CFP National Championship Game for the fourth year in a row.

    Murray was stellar after a bad start, going 19-37 for...

    Oklahoma vs. Houston season opener review

    image.jpeg image.jpeg HOUSTON, TEXAS – We’ve seen two kick-sixes, as they happened. One live on TV and one live in the stadium. Both were equally boneheaded moves by the coach trying the field goal, but the first one was a lot more amusing than the second. Houston’s kick-six against the Sooners broke open a two-point game in NRG Stadium yesterday as Houston upset Oklahoma 33-23, in a game that wasn’t as close as the score. Indeed, a goal-line fumble in...

    The Road Warrior Report - Ohio State Review - September 10, 2017



    COLUMBUS, OHIO
    – In the world of college football, there aren’t many things better than a top 5, national spotlight matchup in one of the hallowed cathedrals of the sport in front of 109,000 people. Unless, that is, rendering those 109,000 a non-factor, followed immediately by prompting an exercise to see how quickly 109,000 people can evacuate with 9-plus minutes to play in the game. And so it was at The Horseshoe in Columbus, as the Sooners avenged last year’s beatdown in Norman...

    The Road Warrior Report - September 23, 2017 - Baylor revew

    IMG_5377.JPG

    WACO, TX – Had you told me beforehand the Sooners would score 49 points against Baylor in the conference opener, I wouldn’t have been surprised. Had you told me Baylor would score 41, I’d have told you that you were nuts. In the event, both happened, as Oklahoma had to hold off a late Baylor rally to eke out a 49-41 win at McLane Stadium Saturday night. Baylor scored 10 points late in the game, recovered an onside kick, and were in a position to possibly tie...

    The Road Warrior Report - Rose Bowl Review - January 2, 2018

    27D03413-05BF-4457-92F0-A4B138EE8250.jpeg

    PASADENA, CA – The Granddaddy of them All had never seen one like this. It was an instant classic. Unfortunately, as has happened before, the Sooners were on the wrong end of it, falling 54-48 in double overtime to Georgia in the national semifinals here at the Rose Bowl.

    Baker Mayfield, in his final game as a Sooner, went 23-35 with two TDs and one huge pick, while also catching a TD pass on a gadget play. Rodney Anderson shredded the Georgia defense for...

    The Road Warrior Report - September 11, 2016 - Louisiana-Monroe Review

    image.jpeg NORMAN – What a difference a week makes. We won’t pretend that a significant decrease in the quality of the opponent didn’t have a lot to do with it, but still, the Sooners looked very much a sharper team in last night’s 59-17 drubbing of Louisiana-Monroe in the newly-renovated Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Baker Mayfield was 14-20 for 244 yards and 2 TDs in only a half of action. Joe Mixon rushed for 117 yards on 14 carries, while Samaje Perine added 58 yards on...

    The Road Warrior Report - September 18, 2016 - Ohio State Review

    image.jpeg NORMAN – Maybe our best chance was the monsoon. If we had played in the absolute downpour that hit Owen Field a couple of hours before the Ohio State game was scheduled to kick off, we might have been better off. But, public safety considerations being what they are, the powers that be wisely decided to delay kickoff 90 minutes, so we could all be dry as we watched the Sooners take a comprehensive thumping from Ohio State, 45-24.

    Things started off well enough,...

    The Road Warrior Report - October 2, 2016 - TCU Review

    IMG_5481.JPG IMG_5469.JPG IMG_5466.JPG FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Here is all you need to take away from Saturday’s crazy 52-46 Sooner win over TCU at Amon Carter Stadium – we are 1-0 in conference. That is literally the only thing that matters. Yes, half the game was outstanding, and half was wretched. Yes, this team is clearly capable of going 10-2, but is equally capable of going 7-5. But there are no beauty contests here – the beauty contests ended...

    Oklahoma defeats Texas, 45-40

    IMG_5687.JPG

    DALLAS, TX – After three years of getting pushed around the Cotton Bowl, the Sooners had finally had enough. Today, they did the pushing, as they took the Golden Hat back home with a 45-40 win over Texas, in a game that was way closer than it should have been, thanks to continuing defensive problems. This thing wasn’t officially put away until the last play - the longest futile attempt at a lateral play that we’ve ever seen. The thing literally went on about 45...

    Sooners defeat Wildcats, 38-17

    NORMAN – After five straight wins by the road team in the OU-Kansas State series, it was about time that someone defended home field. The Sooners did just that today, with a workmanlike 38-17 win over the Wildcats, which marked the Sooners’ first win over KSU in Norman since 2009. Dede Westbrook, who didn’t start the game for some reason, continued his torrid pace, with nine catches for 184 yards and three TDs. Baker Mayfield was excellent, going 25 of 31 for 346 yards, four TDs, and one...
