...So does crack but in this case I am referring to Oklahoma State and the amount of speed they will put on the field this weekend! I have faith in our coaching staff to put together a game plan that will neutralize this advantage a little bit but at the end of the day I think it will be the difference that decides the game. Hopefully Okie State will make some mistakes and we can capitalize on those mistakes but until we get the speed some of our opponents have it will continue to cause us problems. I am confident that the coaching staff knows this and
are already addressing it with recruiting. Just imagine what our record might be if we had the same kind of speed and athleticism our opponents have!
Looking at the extended forecast, it actually looks to be a fairly decent week. And a great day on Saturday, as of right now Mostly sunny and 63. That'd be nice for tailgating and watching some fall football and should bring out a nice crowd.
I'm sure it will change.
Our lack of speed defensively has been a concern all year. Our defensive coaches have done a good job of putting our players in positions to be successful. Pass rush and containment on OSU,s QB will be the difference in Saturday's game.
I don't expect to win, but I'd like to see some fight. Having Austen back would be really, really big. While I think A-Rob is our best player, I think Austen is our most important offensively. Especially the way he was playing the last couple of games before the injury. It took him a while to get the system, but it appeared as if the light bulb had gone off. I'm sure the same would eventually happen for Tiller, but he's going through that process against better teams at a time where we REALLY need a win.
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
