OKLAHOMA VS CLEMSON RECAP
No Kudos to hand out after a disappointing performance in the Orange Bowl. I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm getting pretty tired of losing to Clemson. We lost to a team with a one dimensional read/option quarterback who should not have been invited to New York for the Heisman presentation. Kennan Reynolds of Navy is head and shoulders a much better QB. We had an impressive opening drive that resulted in 7 points. It seemed after that Lincoln wasn't happy with the play sequence because he changed it up and we never ran another series like the first one. We should have stuck with the run game and thrown more short passes of the 5-15 yard variety to the tight end, running backs out of the backfield and the wide receivers. Clemson blitzed a lot and if you want to stop a blitz, you have to strike them in the holes created by the blitzing LB's or CB's with quick passes. I was very disappointed in our defense too. Going into the game, we knew Clemson would run better than 50 per cent of the time with the read/option. We had been stopping running games all season, but couldn't figure out how to stop Clemson's running game. The coaches better be studying a lot of game film in the off season, because we open with Houston next season and they run a similar style offense I believe. We will also be playing Ohio State in game three and they like to run their QB too. We need to shut down running games and be able to cover man-to-man. After Ohio State, we jump right into conference play against TCU.
The Sooner men's team jumped out to a 12-0 record and a number one ranking in the coaches poll before losing a nail-biter by three points in triple overtime at Kansas.
