My Beloved Sooners

Not our best year, that's for sure.

I'm very proud of Landry Jones. He has really stepped up and did a fine job in difficult circumstances.

The difficult circumstances is the fact that he has been effectively playing alone. He has no protection. He has no receivers. And would the defense like to actually get off the bench and come and play the game?

I'm very sad about Sam Bradford. More than just because he can't play. He is a good kid and I hate to see him hurt.

I don't really know what happened in the Texas game at half-time. If we had played the second half like we played the first, we would have owned the Longhorns. Something happened, however, to make our guys start playing like they did against Miami.

We dropped from an embarrassing 20th place in the AP poll to an appalling 25th place. We aren't even ranked in the Harris Poll or the BCS.

There are lots of fair weather fans out there who get mad and stomp around, or worse, don't even support the team when we lose.

I'm different- I'm alumni.

Boomer Sooner, Baby!

I feel bad for Bradford, you never want to see a kid get hurt... again. But there is no way that OU should even be ranked 25 at this point. Maybe down the line when a few teams lose more games and they win some more, but right now they shouldn't be ranked in the top 25.
I know OU has played a tough schedule and it doesn't seem fair to OU (or UGA) when other teams feast on creampuffs, but that's how it goes.
