After browsing the score prediction thread I realized that I've never seen so many here predicting an OU loss. All things considered, it's understandable. After all, we are gutted with injuries to our very best players at nearly every key position, and by pure luck osu gets OU in stillwater in back-to-back years which just happens to be the two best years in the history of their program. Also, osu is legitimately a very good team. This started me thinking about why an osu victory would bother me. After all, losing to a top-5 team on the road is nothing to be ashamed of. It's nowhere near the embarrassment of losing to tech at home but for some reason that loss bothers me less than losing to osu would. After sorting through my feelings on the matter I came to the following conclusion. I really couldn't care less if osu manages to put one trophy in their otherwise empty case. What would bother me is knowing that if they win, they will instantly declare themselves the best program in the state from the beginning of time. They have always tried to downplay OU's conference titles by saying how they care about other sports but you can bet that if they win a conference title they will become the same wal-mart tshirt buying fools they accuse OU fans of being. To sum it up I just know that they would not keep things in perspective. The truth would be that their two best teams in history got OU in stillwater two years straight and only managed a split, pure and simple. They would also never admit that this years OU team is decimated with injuries even though they have cried for the last year that the 2010 outcome would have been different if Blackmon had been 100%. Having said all this I still have confidence that we can get it done again this year, even against all odds.
