I forgot OU blocked a punt? Was that the last time?
No they've blocked a few since then. Jason Carter had one in 06. Javon Harris had one in 09 and I want to say there was one in 10.
Stoops looks young....
I'm hell when I'm well.. And, I am never sick!
It's also funny watching Jason under center, operating out of an I-formation?
Jason had no arm left in 4th Q... also, look at all the coaches and great players on both sides of the ball. Lots of bad calls in that game.
With m.stoops and lance Mitchell best defense since 1975. AD was one year too late. Also, white damaged wrist in KSU debacle.
Don't forget alot of the media look at that like OU was dominated but as I remember OU still had a shot to tie it at the end of the game....
Jason White was one beat up quarterback that night!
I believed they blocked one at A&M in 2010.

Mitchell didn't play in 03 because he tore his ACL the third game of the year. I will agree that it was a great defense though. Harris, Dvoracek, Cody, and Jackson on the line. Lehman and Jackson at LB. Strait, Perkins, Everage, Pool, and Nicholson in the secondary. A great defense indeed and was arguably one of the best. The first few years in that decade were some extremely good defenses.
OU really needs some game changing play makers like they had on the 03' defense. Hopefully coach M Stoops can start bringing in those types of players on a regular basis.
Both ideas are right. OU was dominated but had a shot at the end of the game.
That is what has been lacking on the OU defenses for years. OU has not had a game changing linebacker since Lehman. Rufus was good but not a guy that teams schemed around. Same thing for Travis Lewis. Good players but not the ones that struck fear into offenses. Ryan Reynolds could have been if it wasn't for injuries.
As I recall it was a good game with OU having a critical pic 6 in the second half in witch the D pitched a shutout, the second mistake and what would eventually decide the game was OUr failure to stay with the run late in the game, OU owned them in the fourth quarter and had them on the ropes but decided to put the ball back in the hands of an injured and beat up J. White. I will never forget how that game ended.

I was there, and I can tell you the momentum was all ours in the end of the 4th. LSU fans were drowned out by our much smaller crowd and the band was rocking...players thought we would win, and it is the only game I have ever pulled a Mack Brown and said "we just ran out of time". We had them on the ropes and the mystery of why we moved the ball all the way down the field running and then ended it by throwing pass after incomplete pass, I still cannot fathom
Curtis Lofton was a game changer
Kejaun Jones ran well in the fourth, if only JW had hit him in the endzone?
I was there too. Not much mystery to it if you ask me, it's just that hindsight is 20-20.
They were well aware we had run it down their throats and had stacked the box as we were close to the goal line. K Jones was wide open in the end zone, we just didn't execute on what was really a nice play call.
If that pass is complete then it's a genius call. Or if we try to run and fail it would have been "they stacked the box, we are stupid to be so predictable".
That's how hindsight works.
Yeah I would say he was a game changer when you look at it. Forgot about him. He was a beast. Tackling machine that made everyone know where he was. That's still been five years though. Sounds better than 9.
I was there as well. Most I ever paid for a football ticket, hell any ticket, in my life!! Worst opposing fans I've ever experienced in my life as well. Their fans are classless trolls. LSU's defense was totally gassed on that last drive. Crimson is right, they knew we had and were going to run. The first pass play call was understandable and wide open. Good call. The other THREE pass plays, not so much. Even though they knew we were going to run, I don't think they could have stopped it.
I'll never forget that play. Kejuan was wide open in the endzone for a touchdown to tie the game, Jason just missed him. I believe LSU had one first down in the second half.
One or two. The defense really played well that entire game. I downloaded the whole game on my computer and watched it not too long ago and forgot how good that defense was in that game. Just a bad pass and sketchy playcalling down the stretch from numero ocho.
By the way, best Christmas gift I've ever got was tickets to that game. My "Big" present was last, and my dad brought in a heavy box. I opened it up, and inside was a visitors guide to New Orleans and two tickets inside. I flipped. He filled the box to make it seem heavy but instead it was two Sugar Bowl tickets. Great Christmas Day memory.
The non call on a fumble after the hit by Strait erased what should have been another example of Sooner Magic & would have keyed a late win for OU.
I still get pissed about OU's defense giving up the early momentum and field position in that game. BTW - Saban DID have spies in the Superdome.
