    Re: This is a Chumpionship Defense

    We don't know how to win close games. Only ones I can really think of recently are OSU last year, where we pulled away late, ISU 2007 where we won 17-10 or whatever after losing to Colorado the week before, a few Mizzou games where the final score was closer than the actual game, and that Texas A&M 11 men on the field game.
    Not my chair not my problem thats what i say

    Our D was decent.

    Didn't play as well against the run as I would have hoped.

    Re: This is a Chumpionship Defense

    Sadly it was a repeat of the last few big games. Our D is actually really good giving up 14 points, can't fault them for the turnover and extremely short field. I just don't know why when the game is on the line we just can't get the stop or maybe I do but I'll keep the BV bashing to a minimum. Tonight the D had the chance to make a huge play and swing the momentum over to us and Franks drops a pick 6. BYU and tonight when the other team got the ball late in the game with our D on the field. The thought never crossed my mind that we would actually get the stop. The last few years have sapped my faith in the D making the play when its needed.

    Our defense has given up 8.5 points per game this season. I really don't think much more needs to be said.

    Re: This is a Chumpionship Defense

    Gotta make the stops when the game is on the line; a Brent Venables defense fails miserably at this WAY too many times

    Re: This is a Chumpionship Defense

    I'm not going to put the loss on the D. But we all knew we went in the game with the D needing to win it...and they did not. I conclude that since 2000, we have not had a game winning D.

    Come on, they where exposed tonight - as always. No passion except for Beals and finally Murray late

    Franks coverage has been awful - until the pass you mentioned

    Franks was also the weak link bad against BYU.

    Our 2001 defense was better than 2000.

    2000 was just bailed out early in the year by an explosive offense. When Heupel got hurt, the D peaked.

    We were so fortunate in 2000. Not a SINGLE game missed to injury for the starters.

    Re: This is a Chumpionship Defense

    Lots of injuries in the last 4 games... but I think the turning point for tonight's game was the fumble when Landry got hit from the right from an unblocked pass rusher. Easy 11 yard pass (although through 4 defenders) and a great pass by the receiver and it changed momentum of the game for the second half.

    We played catchup for the rest of the night and got to within 1 point but not enough. That turnover hurt.

    The Franks interception/pick six would have helped... but the momentum was with Miami until the defense picked up early in the fourth.

    We have a poor track record on the road...

    Re: This is a Chumpionship Defense

    They were gouged on run after run by an offensive line that was criticized last week for being terrible. And of course...they have a banner night against our all NFL defensive front 7. I got tired of seeing Miami's RB's carry 3-4 sooners on their backs for big gains all night. This D is overrated. Outside of Beal, not one D-linemen had a presence out there tonight. AND....I'm tired of us being weak over the middle season in and season out. People just drag route us to death because we can't cover a pass over the middle. Enough...

    Other than you are incredibly mediocre minded. But then again, I guess that didn't need to be said either, eh?

    Vulnerables is in over his head. He's incompetent and has been exposed time after time, yet Stoops keeps him, why??? Because he's getting 4 mil a year and doesn't give a **** if he craps out a garbage product. It's time he feels some heat.

    Why does everyone keep bringing his name up. Yea, the defense was great with Mike, but they had their flops also. Time makes you forget the bad things. Although, this is going to be hard to forget...

    At least with 2 losses, we have a good chance at winning our bowl game.
