We dont have a mobile, elusive QB. think I died when I read that.

Default Re: Oklahoma fan on possible Cotton Bowl matchup.

to be fair I don't really consider Connor all that elusive either. He is certainly mobile and a very good runner but he isn't the most elusive guy in the world.

I guess I should add that when I hear (or read) elusive I think of guys like Ace or even Mike Davis and Marcus...guys who have the ability to make people miss (completely or partly) in tight spaces...that is really the one part of Connor's running game that is missing.

Default Re: Oklahoma fan on possible Cotton Bowl matchup.

Bob Stoops was a DC under Spurrier so I think philosophy wise, there is truth to familiarity.

I don't consider Connor "elusive" either.....when I think of elusive I think of Mike Vick in his prime or Russell Wilson. Connor is more of a dual-threat option QB similar to their own Blake Bell.

I can't fathom this guys "favorable" comment. OK isn't that great.

This is exactly what's called giving a defense "fits":

Default Re: Oklahoma fan on possible Cotton Bowl matchup.

I don't know how much more elusive you have to be. He scorches defenses with his running style. I'll take 80 or 90 yards rushing from my QB any day. Plus, if he passes for 2 or 3 TDs we probably win every game like that.

Well, Bowling Green is up 31-13 on Northern Illinois... If they hold on, Baylor probably will get a BCS at-large, and the Cotton would pick Texas or Oklahoma...

All we'd have to do is convince Stoops it's a big game.

I'd love to play Texas. That would be a good game.

Also, if we win, we could say that we have beaten Nebraska, Michigan, and Texas in the past 3 years. Wow.

I know beating former powerhouses is a big deal to some, but IMO I don't see it as some big accomplishment. We beat who we had to play.. The Osbourne/bo schembechler days are long gone. I know what your saying, I just can't stand teams that do that.

I mean hell Mizzou has 15 conference championships in their schools history (more than auburn) but We don't look at them as a national powerhouse in the same way. I know it's diff conferences, etc. but to me Nebraska and Michigan are irrelavent just like Oklahoma right now.
