This is ridiculous!! Whiffing on our first choices of dt's in high school... yes Whiffing!! They all said no! esp knowing there is a huge NEED for them now!! but we all get excited, way to go Shipp, you got a high risk to graduate commitment that most likely is going to be at a juco next year! Wow great Job!
meanwhile , the pumpers pump that everything is ok, the realists get downvoted, but the truth is Oklahoma is in real trouble!! you win games in the trenches... folks we lost 2 off linemen before the season started and it hurt us... Can u imagine having 3-4 def tackles for next year and 2 get hurt in august?? there goes the season!! without a def line presence Oklahoma will never never never see #.8
This is ridiculous.... yea I believe its a time to panic because what the hell is going on? no lbers, no def tackles... this is just absurd!! the heck with wr's.... or athletes.... GO GET lineman.... go find a 1 star i dont care but you need bodies to help with depth!
Ok im better now!

I thought you did a big mea culpa a couple of weeks ago where you apologized for being such a wipe. People congratulated you and commended you for admitting you were a wipe. Now I sense that you are once again a wipe.
He's a realist and I agree w him 100%
So you really love OU Huh. Please!
another fan who has never played football or coached a team
I actually agree with what he's saying, and I'm a pumper. I think there are some guys they are going to land the next couple of weeks, perhaps from the houston area, that will increase the numbers. And, while they're not 5 star guys, they are very talented. But, things have to change moving forward. Recruiting ol/dl must improve.
Don't whine about beaches, Bob -- hire great recruiters.
not to worry, we'll move Corey Nelson to DT
he's our best player and its not even close

I must disagree with you on this subject. I feel Coach Shipp is doing a good job.
If Huggins doesn't make it one will emerge. Your anxiety seems a little rough... you ok??
Russell is not a definite either. Look what happened to Will Latu last year. We all told that he would make it. I am not so worried about Huggins as he would not be playing next year. But Russell is needed.

This is funny... Yes I played a couple of years of college football... yes ive coached a jr high football team defense!! actually coached vernon maxwell... but anyways, this has nothing to do with whether or not I like OU... my goodness, its common sense.. OU is in trouble and without at least numbers, they are in big trouble... James and some of you can spin it how you want, down vote the hell out of me.. The truth is we are thin at the d-line, we have no immed help in the future.. russell possibly if he gets here... huggins, nope he's juco bound... no other juco commits.. say what you want but Shill whiffed on the big time players , the highly recruited high schoolers!! and He is, Stoops is, Our football team is one or 2 injuries away from being in serious trouble...
Yes We should beat the iowa states, the jayhawks from kansas, the bears fron baylor and at least 2 cupcake teams... thats 5 wins Given every year OU should win.. I could say more but I wont.... but to compete against texas, osu, notre dame, west va, tech, & tcu, one would logically think OU needs def tackles!!
please almighty great fan of OU why my concern, or gripe has anything to do with the thousands of dollars I spend a year supporting Oklahoma athletics
concerned for our defense next year and im
wondering why the heck OU cant land a dt commit without questions regarding whether or not they will even make it?
I was being an idiot.... I still have legit concerns and if you dont think there are problems going on, than ur blind... we just got our asses handed to us by texas a&m because we have no def lineman.... we have 3-4 that are still question marks. peterson will he get healthy... wade will he get it... anderson will he remain elgible... phillips ok promising... what happens if 2 of these get hurt? then what genious we're screwed
No because you come on here so often and wine and complain and to be honest it just get's old. I know several poster's have expressed similar thoughts to you as well. It just becomes taxing after awhile .
It is isn't really the concern that's the issue here. It's the manner in which you express your concern. I actually think that you're probably a passionate OU fan. And I'm concerned, as well, but over-reactionary negativity will not help our recruiting, our coaches, yourself, etc... at this point. Maybe we need a different DL coach. And expressing our concerns will help that along. Or maybe we don't need a new DL coach.
Not that you asked for my suggestions, but if you were to ask, I would say, "Express your concern and the possibility of possibly replacing Ship in a different manner". (I actually don't think we need to resort to getting rid of Ship YET... Ship's had some great ones and some very good ones). But seeing that you were a college player and especially a coach, be professional about it. It will reflect more of the person you probably are or want to be, which I'm guessing showed up in your earlier apology to the board.
Just a thought. Take it or leave it.

very well point taken thank you im
changing the title
im defin not as bad as some OUgrad 97..., I truly do not have an agenda. I hate hate hate the fact that OU isnt winning national titles....and if you watched our game against texas a&m, if that doesnt piss you off just a little, somethings wrong.. is it just a game? yes!! but when Stoops gets paid all that money and our teams get beat so bad at times, something is wrong.. The coaches say they did not have the players on defense well by all means go get them... but whiff after whiff after whiff whether its def tackle or linebacker, we are thin and just a couple of injuries away from being in trouble 7-5 next year trouble
There's a reason he gets taken off the field for Shannon to come in. And by the way, Colvin is easily our best defender
