Notes on the OSU-Texas game

first_imgWe are at the point of sarcastic cheers from Cowboys fans every time the Pokes get a first down. #okstate— Andrew Carter (@Andrew__Carter) November 16, 2014 Tyreek Hill tries to break free against Texas. (USATSI)Tyreek Hill tries to break free against Texas. (USATSI)I posted the 10 Thoughts over here — this is the rest of my notebook from tonight. Not going to lie, it’s a little more sparse than usual.• Texas ran 76 plays, OSU ran 52. Normally I wouldn’t say that’s a big deal but when you play a team as physical as Texas is, it seems like it matters more.• I loved Texas’ helmets. Not sorry.• Am I the only one who feels like Tyreek almost never hits the correct hole? Far be it from me to criticize the fastest dude in college football but I find myself saying “no, not that one!” pretty often.• “Daxx Garman has done a very good job of doing the best he could.” A real quote from Joey Harrington.• Strange but true: OSU still has zero fumble recoveries on the season. I can’t find a team this century that has finished a season like that. In fact, I can’t find a team that has had fewer than two since…OSU did it in 2003.• The one upside of horrific games is that Twitter is usually on point.They had to wake up Bullet from a 3 hour nap. #okstate— Carson Cunningham (@KOCOCarson) November 16, 2014 This win will make UT bowl eligible which means they’ll likely be ranked top 5 next year in the preseason.— Nolan (@nolancox) November 16, 2014• Had to feel for Desmond Roland tonight. First game back after his mom died, senior night. All of the emotions.• Kameron Doolittle led OSU in receiving tonight. Just gonna leave that right here.• Joe Davis, the head announcer (I think that was his name) at one point gushed about a Daxx incompletion saying “at least he set his feet and stepped into it!” That’s where we’re at, folks.• OSU was 2/13 on third downs. We’re now 51/153 on the season. Seems not good.• Pretty good analysis at halftime from The Visor.Gundys insight to robert Allen was awesome. “We aren’t very good”— d (@dbeeze_) November 16, 2014• OSU didn’t beat Texas in Stillwater in my teens or 20s. That’s a little depressing.• I’ve never seen a “leg whip” penalty.• You know who’s a boss? Orange Power guy at the games. He would show up and scream his head off if you were rolling 11 dudes out there that have contributed to this blog. I love him.• At one point in the second half we had 56 offensive yards and 55 penalty yards.• This sounds about right.Charlie Strong said he told his players to take off their cold gear before the game. Wanted to set the tone and create the right mindset— Brandon Chatmon (@BChatmon) November 16, 2014• I feel like Swoopes throws east-west a lot (or north-south in BPS). I noted it in the 10 Thoughts but are we positive he’s good? I know he does good things but I’m not convinced he’s a star.[1. We will lose by 52 in Austin next season.]• Monstrous. He’s been one of the few bright spots. I don’t know if he’ll get it but he should be All-Big 12.#okstate Emmanuel Ogbah becomes OSU’s first 10-sack guy since Greg Richmond in 2003.— Bill Haisten ?? (@billhaisten) November 16, 2014• This guy.• This was called roughing the passer. I truly hope Swoopes lives through it.• Still sick. Boone Pickens just grabbed the mic from Pres. Hargis at midfield: “Congratulations all of us, and Burns, my a$$ is cold.”— Kyle Boone (@PFBoone) November 16, 2014 If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
