used to be.. regarding the relentless playing with passion... the players wanting it bad.. I just do not see the fire in their eyes like it once was....
How does one "see" such things exactly?
That's quite a subjective evaluation, don't you think?
I saw plenty of examples of players apparently "wanting it" this year. I saw players come up big in some gut-check situations with the result of the game on the line.
Just because you "want" to win and "play with passion" doesn't mean you will win them all.
Heck I could "want to" and "with passion" try to guard Kevin Durant with all my being and he would still make me look like a fool - regardless of how bad I wanted it.
I can't say that every player gave 100% on every play this year - in fact that likely did not happen.
But I'm not understanding your basis for making such a sweeping judgment against what really amounts to the desire and effort they put in to win football games.
Seems like an unfair criticism to me.
I can bet you the ones that come on and attack anyone with a different opinion than theirs with the bitter words they use and say you don't know what your talking about are 80% liberal's. Typical mode when they don't like what you have to say.
If you are referring to me, exactly how did I "attack" anyone? Just because I voice a dissenting opinion does not constitute an attack.
BTW - I'm about as conservative as they come. Not that it has a single thing to do with ones view on OU football.

Can't everyone see what this guy's doing by starting all of these negative threads? He's an attention whore, plain and simple. He reminds me of Erica Kane of All My Children who thinks it's all about him and his opinions. It's one thing to be unhappy about OU situation but this guy opens these threads knowing that others will jump on them so that he can be in the spot light. This will be my last post on an irlOU thread. I finally get it.
Amen to this post.

Actually it's now been five years since we played for the national title & we've had two seasons in a row where we ended up 16th & 15th.
Barry did have three seasons of 8-4. He then decided that things had to change and he managed to have the team come back and win his third national title. Now before he did that there were a lot of people who thought he was finished, that the game had passed him by & it took him changing things to get back to winning. I don't think the game has passed Bob by and I do think he could lead us back to another national title but like Barry did I think changes need to be made.
