If your prediction holds true there will be a lot less black feathered birds dirtying windshields.

H Iowa St- W
@ Kansas- L
H Baylor- L
@ OSU- W
H T Tech- W
@ WVa- L
H Texass W
@ TCU- W

That puts us at 10-8 and 20-11. Just don't see us pulling off a Baylor win at this point, but could happen.

If I had to guess, I would say we beat ISU and Texas, lose at KU and WVA, and split the two other home (Baylor and Tech) and road (OSU and TCU) games. I think we are better than OSU and TCU but we struggle too much on the road for me to be confident that we will win both. And I think Tech and Baylor are both winnable but very tough games. So 9-9 is my guess, but wouldn't be surprised to be a game off either direction.

Ok I think 10-8 and WichitaSooner thinks 9-9.... what kind of weird twilight zone have we entered here.

Ha see that's the thing -- even though people accuse me of being a sunshine pumper, I actually am incredibly pessimistic when it comes to individual games. I can easily convince myself that a decent high school team could beat us in hoops or football -- I stress over every game. In any event, I very much hope you best me on this prediction!

9-9. @Kansas being the only 100% loss and Texas in Norman being the only 100% win.

I had Texas Tech as a win until I found out the game is in OKC... Why in the world would they agree to that, especially considering Tech got to play us on their home floor?

It had nothing to do with "agreeing" to anything. It was not something that the league or Tech approached us about. 100 percent OU's idea. Not saying that makes it any better or worse, but it isn't as if we somehow got the short end of the stick. Right or wrong, our program decided playing this game in OCK was in our overall best interest.

They were wrong. Playing away from your home court is never in your best overall interest. I've never heard of a program doing something that makes it statistically less likely to win, and do it completely voluntarily.

Wow!! We very nearly beat Baylor and Tech on the road....yet several have us losing to both at home??!! I realize that Tech is at the Peake, but do ANY of you realize that Techs record of games that are neutral or true road games is 3-6?? They are very beatable!

Lose out on the road and win out at home but failing to beat the #1 team in the nation isn't an acceptable opinion to you? Sometimes the dude may be trollish but i sure hope people can still have opinions on here...

Its one thing if it's that jessiW or jessiwildcat bot that ran wild for a while here..

All of what you said is true, but if you've seen Tech play lately, they are playing better the last several weeks. But fortunately, OU is playing better as well.

As for the remaining slate, I say we go 10-8, but in that stretch, we win a game we shouldn't (Baylor or @WV) and also lose a game we shouldn't (@osu or @tcu).

9-9


We are playing in OKC in hopes of drawing a decent crowd. In case you haven’t noticed there aren’t many fans in the seats of LNC. Student attendance is dismal so need to worry about them not showing up for the game.

ISU: W
@KU: L
BU: W
@OSU: L
TTU: L
@WVU: L
UT: W
@TCU: W

Took one upset win and loss. Hoping we can win all home games but will be tough. No confidence in our ability to finish on the road but we will have the better team @OSU and @TCU. I think BU and TTU home games are tossups.
