The team that scores the most wins. You can't score when the other team has the ball. OU had the ball 13 more minutes than ISU did. Even if ISU had converted both of the INT's into TD's, ISU still doesn't score enough to win.
Waiting for teams to make mistakes is not always a great strategy. When a team has athletic receivers and a good QB, it doesn't seem wise to back off and give said QB all day to pass on 3rd and long when you have that team backed up. The good athletes will usually prevail. Sometimes you have to be aggressive.
We were aggressive and gave up a TD in 50 seconds. Got anymore brilliant ideas genius?
Oklahoma is also the most explosive and well balanced team in our conference. I know KSU beat them and I don't mean to slight KSU but OU is a complete team on both sides of the ball with a lot of talent. While I still think this was a game we could have won, OU did play pretty well. They made some very tough catches. Both on the 50 second drive and then the one Reeves tipped. It's not like no one was around those guys.
To clarify, I didn't mean "you don't have a good team" as a negative comment.
I meant to contrast the word "team" with the the word "program." Obviously you have a good team. That's what I meant. But I was trying to say more than that. It's not just this year. Your coach and your fanbase have constructed a good football program.
Go whip *** in Austin. You definitely can.
Good job representing the B12 against ND last week. I appreciate it.
