Is it just me, But I seem to see a number of designed pass plays each Saturday, in other games, that creates confusion and allows receivers to get open easier. Quick crossing patterns, etc. that doesn't require a lot of time but effective. I believe most of our patterns require the receiver to read the defense. Could this be causing our "younger" receivers some problems with getting open quickly?
That's right. There was that one game when Sam was a freshman.
wow amazin all the bashers of laundry, he can do no right according to some of u bashers, just like the jerk i was sittin next to in his little pink shirt sat night, bad pass and he is cussin our student athlete, such class, i just wonder how the laundry bashers are gonna feel next year when we dont have him and he is playin in the nfl...the ones that constantly complain andou can never do right, why even support the team or are u just on here to bash our team, there are plenty of seats in stooolwater

I don’t measure any college player by how he “might” play in the Pro's.
Just a few of Landry’s accomplishments coming into this year:
2011 Manning Award Finalist
305 yards vs. the great Texas defense in just the first half last year.
13 school passing records.
Over 12,000 career passing yards
2010 Sammy Baugh Award Winner
Before the end of this season he will have the most career wins as an OU’s quarterback.
Yep, just a terrible QB!
I have yet to hear anyone say Landry is a terrible qb. Who is saying that?
Things are rarely perfect or totally bad.
Reality=closer to the middle.
Never as bad as it seems, never as good as it seems.
He has started 4 years. Just exactly what do u expect a 4yr starter in this offemse to have? His stats are what they should be. But while you are trying to point out these stats as possibly a defense of his play, allow me to point out that he has also thrown 40+ ints. He can get all the accolade nominations all he wants. His play on the field is mediocre. I wish him luck but he isn't next level material IMO
OU has to be one of the worst places to play OB because of unrealistic fan expectations. Landry is about to become the career leader for victories by an OU QB.
The QB that he is about to pass received death threats during his playing days from OU “fans” that did not think he was a good enough player.
I have always thought that this is an interesting stat to be tracked in a team sport. I guess it just points out how people view the position.
One of the most often posted criticism of Landry is that he will not be a good Pro QB.
I do not believe a player’s projected or actual Pro career should effect how the player is viewed as a college athlete.
There have been many excellent college players that for one reason or another did not have exemplary Pro careers. So what! They were still very good college players and should be appreciated as such.
I also believe that the majority of OU fans do appreciate Landry’s and the team's accomplishments.
Not that I disagree. I just think when you are the starting signal caller at a program such as ours you have to be aware of the lofty expectations. Along with that criticism will come along with it. I think that is something to prepare for during recruiting. You have to have thick skin in order to make it. I think the last thing any of us would want is a weak minded QB. I'm not the biggest LJ fan but I do applaud the fact that he has stayed the course and has kept his head. I imagine that the coaches have alot to do with his maturity. His play has been a bit suspect at times and with that I think he has to understand that he will be critisized for that. I feel he has handled it very well.
Also, I think the coaches are trying to find ways to help him more in this offense this year than in the past. 32 and 28 pass attempts are very good for him. I think this will allow him to cut down on mistakes and to have better sucess this season than in the past. I hope we continue to feed this running game. In the A&M game he threw the 1int but if they were a better team it would have been 3. So its best that they continue to take the ball out of his hands when possible.
I don't understand why stats are used to show how good Landry is. He's played a full season longer than any other qb under stoops! What do you expect???
What you really have to compare are the AVG stats. Where does he rank in the following stats?
yards per completion
These are the only fair stats to compare.
I only get to watch on TV, and I'm not sure I can justify my opinions, but it's always seemed to me that pro coaching will develop his strengths into a pro QB. He's got a lot of the physical tools they look for. The specific thing that repeatedly frustrates me is his tendency to throw high. That's a matter of technique that should have been fixed by now.
And I'm not going to comment on his Inner States in case he corrects his technique, finds me and beats me to death with thrown footballs.

Since a few of the posters brought up what Landry has done post Ryan Broyles here are the numbers:
6 games:4(W) - 2(L)
@Baylor 36-51/0 td 1 int/447 yds
Iowa St 22-43/0 td 2 int/256 yds
@OSU 27-50/0 td 2 int/250 yds
@Insight Bowl vs Iowa 16-25/1 td 1 int/161yds
@UTEP 21-36 2 td 0 int/222yds
FAMU 19-28 2 td 1 int/252yds
avg:23-39 59% comp 265yds 5 total TD's 7 total INT's
This is not meant to be one way or another, just raw numbers since OU lost RB.
I'm a real adult fan, not like all you other spoiled babies. You don't know anything about me, but I can make wild accusations about you.
