    They have the potential, certainly, to play in a great way.

    At least Miami isn't on the schedule.

    That's a big 'ole statement rus...but I like it.

    I think we've had some very talented teams since then, but this one may be the most talented overall.

    I just don't see it. Landry has always seemed pretty weak to me regardless of the records he's broken. I guess it's because he came in right after Sam Bradford.

    Of course I always always thought (and still do) that Hybl was a great underrated QB while everyone else likes to pile on the poor guy so my opinions probably aren't too valid.

    I can actually get what you're saying (about Landry). The kid is amazing, and I saw that Kiper just moved him up to #4 on his draft board. But, he's just not a magnetic guy...personality maybe? You could be right, maybe just a function of following Sam.

    Remains to be seen... I was more convinced after the FSU game but maybe the Mizzou game was just a big letdown game and all 532 yards were a figment of my beer-induced imagination.

    i think it's because landry always seems good for about 2-3 bonehead throws per game. he has as much talent as anyone that has thrown a ball at OU, but he still throws those few balls a game that he absolutely should not have given his ability and experience...

    Talent wise 2003, 2004 teams were probably far more talented. as was 2008. Look at the draft picks.

    As a team you can't say 88 was better than 2000's squad that went undefeated. This team might be in the top 4 or 5 of stoops best but thats it.

    He has passed for more yardage than any QB in OU history, he will easily be a top draft pick, what does it take??? Geez...

    85, 86, 87 Sooners went 11-1 and the 88 team 9-3. I would say this team is on par with the 2004 team, if that. There is still alot of football to be played befgore making any comparisons. I hope we can say they rival the 2000 team if they win another National Championship.

    A national championship is what it takes. I want to see it happen, but it's hard for me to see Landry getting it done. I hope I'm wrong. I like the guy and I certainly like OU so I hope for the best with both.

    Shawn Bell shattered every passing and TD record at Baylor and still only won 5 games. That's somewhat apples to oranges, but the point being that it really doesn't matter how many yards he throws for when it's the wins that count.
