    won't be able to make it, Dahl kid #2 due any day so will have a newborn & 22 month old at home.

    Here is your fun fact/stat of the day:

    OU's defense has allowed 47 trips into the redzone, and given up 44 touchdowns on those trips for a 93.6% touchdown percentage, which is 126/129 in D1 rankings.

    For anyone making score predictions on the game, DO NOT GIVE BAMA FIELD GOALS

    Bama 49 - 34.

    We haven’t missed an XP in two games so we are probably due to miss at least two.

    ou has also faced more top 15 offenses than the other 3 cfp teams combined

    as to how much facing ou’s d factors into being a top 15 offense, i’ll leave that up for you to decide

    the good news is the run d seems to have improved a lot since moving to 4 man front and inserting barnes into the starting lineup (why we weren’t playing him to begin with is only one of about 50 mysteries)

    the bad news is our cbs are still god awful outside of brown. bookie didn’t play at all against texas which helped a ton too, he is awful

    If we held them to like 30, we should give Tosh a huge raise.

    When do y'all think is the best time to buy tickets?

    Should I spend the $500+ to get a good seat now? Or do we think prices will drop and a better deal can be made closer to gameday?

    To answer your question, I’d wait as long as possible to buy tickets, and go ahead and take care of everything else. I honestly wouldn’t even feel too bad about going to Miami without tickets in hand.

    Pops won't like this approach. I always do this but he likes to have everything in order so we'll see. I'm looking at club seats on the 35 for $550/ticket. Prices seem to be falling a moderate pace so I may be able to hold off for a bit.

    I've already booked lodging and flights. Outside of game tickets and dinner reservations, I am all set

    I always take off the week between Xmas and New Years and wife and I do something fun. She wants to go to the Keys for a few days and then the game so I guess we'll do that. Not sure how I feel about taking a 14 month old to an 8pm game but guess we'll see how that goes.

    I would guess that the ticket demand from Alabama fans wont be very high. Yet another expensive trip and some people will hold out and wait for the national championship game

    Think of it this way. In 17 years when they're coming of age, you can tell them how you took them to the game that was end of one dynasty and the beginning of the next.

    The babe will be forever grateful for such memories.

    Do you think y'all will play ball control or try to slug it out with us? I think it's funny when a team tries to play ball control against OU and their 3 yard hitch rout goes for a touchdown. Then they're like "well fuck... ".

    Ideally, I think we’d like to run the football to shorten the game and limit possessions for Murray.
     
  37. M3

    M3 I have a dossier on all of you

    That's the practical approach. It's what Texas did actually and it worked for almost a half because we couldn't get in the end zone for some reason. Hit us up the middle then go long. Rinse and repeat.

    I'm really interested to see if y'all play man press or zone on us because of the WR/TE matchups against y'alls DB's and LB's.

    They're playing that close to the vest. I haven't even heard a diagnosis yet of what the injury is. It looked bad when the cart came out to pick him up but then they let him back out on crutches and he was just making a token attempt to even use them.
    He was acting like he wanted to throw them down and that they were annoying him.

    Cee Dee is more than capable of going over the top but he he's running a 4.4 not a low 4.3.

    Rambo may get his chance to shine finally.

    No team came closer to beating Bama in the regular season than A&M this year.

    If Lincoln had any sense he would call Jimbo for advice. He probably won't, but pride cometh before the fall.

    Here this is from the pay boards.



    Rumor is sprained foot, not broken. 2-4 weeks. He was seen today without a cast so it's safe to assume its not broken.

    It looks like he's playing but at what % he'll be at is the only question.

    You're welcome.

    OU has a real shot at winning if they can make it a shootout. Something like 45-42. But that’s not possible without Marquise Brown. Hope he’s healthy because dude is electric. Reminds me of John Ross from Washington a few years back.

    Just run the triple option like Army did. OU had 7 possessions in regulation which is hilarious.
