I'm sorry if people find that annoying, but it's a fact.
What does that time period have to do with when Capel took the job. I agree with you that it wasn't the bottom for OU basketball when Capel took the job (not even close). We had some ugly, ugly times during the 50's and 60's.

Like I said, the truth is in the middle.

The bolded part of your statement was my point.

That's fair. The part about the truth being in the middle is my point.

Didn't mean for this thread to be something to argue about. It was more of me saying WW is going to be the guy who's going to build a pipeline from DFW to Norman. I think we might see some of that with a kid from Richland. Maybe I shouldn't have said Blake brought OU from the Bottom, but I feel he prevented OU from hitting it.

I would completely agree. He was the right coach at the right time. There are many who couldn't have done nearly as well as he has.
